the middle east oil tsunamis assassination in iraq is also led to a spike of tensions between the u.s. and what the implications of that. i mean it's not difficult to understand how carrying out such an operation on a sovereign and hit and harming the sovereignty of a country like iraq will lead to these reactions it's a parliamentary decision it's not legally binding yet but it sets lose a sort of sort of dynamics that are putting again american troops in danger in iraq and can ultimately lead to the ousting of the us troops from iraq led by iraq and not by iran and how important is the presence of u.s. troops in iraq. well that's a completely different subject matter that needs to be discussed in fact the u.s. has been working together with iraq and to some extent with the iranians to to fight terrorist groups to fight the likes of isis to fight al qaeda and other
12:06 pm
groups and for that matter equipping iraqi. equipping the iraqi army training them and that has been the role of the u.s. but at the same time it has also been accused of certain abuses it has been targets of attacks by different militias that are operating in iraq so there is a real mixed picture of what u.s. presence in iraq really means so that by a middle east analyst religion and think tank. telling not to stray d.l. by the government has pledged equivalent of over a 1000000000 euros to help communities bridge by the devastating bushfires the finalist to scott morrison warned the fuss could continue burning for months to come at least 24 people have died and thousands have lost their homes since it's a warning no one ever wants to hear we cannot guarantee your safety at present if you are not i able to defend yourself mentally or physically protect yourself

12:13 pm
denied the charges he says any sexual and countess well consensual some viewers may find thoughts of this report disturbing. the disgraced former hollywood mogul leaving court in december 67 year old harvey weinstein's health appears to have to terri aerated sharply in just 2 years after the scandal around him started to unfold. in 2017 weinstein was still a cochairman of the weinstein company alongside his brother bob. together they produced a number of highly successful movies including pulp fiction shakespeare in love and django unchained. in october 2017 several women many of them actress says came forward to accuse weinstein of sexual harassment the allegation sparked the global feminist me to movement which soon spread from the film industry to many other aspects of society weinstein's case continued to bring forward one new account
12:14 pm
after another he led me to his bathroom pleading that i just watch him masturbate. my heart was racing and i was very scared. i pulled my arm away finally and headed to the door he started following me and telling me that he could introduce me to bob weinstein and i could get a 3 picture deal and that he would green light my script but i had to watch him masturbate about 80 women have spoken out about harvey weinstein among them actresses angelina jolie ashley judd and gwyneth paltrow according to paltrow she was 22 years old when weinstein made sexual advances against her. following the accusations the academy of motion picture arts and sciences which awards the oscars expelled weinstein he was fired from his own company in october 2017 immediately after the scandal broke weinstein's wife georgina chapman announced she was leaving
12:15 pm
him. the criminal trial against weinstein is based on 2 cases of sexual assault and rape dating from 20062013 but prosecutors will call on several other accusers to establish a pattern of predatory sexual behavior. that may get some perspective now on weinstein straw men now from a feminist author and activist christina learns she's also co-founded the advocacy group the center for feminist foreign policy. welcome just to you know not deadly for us what will you be watching for in this trial or perhaps around the stride. i hope that you will get the longest possible. long as possible sentence and i also hope that this trial will unlike many of us focus on history hevia on his predatory behavior and and history and that the victims and those who have come forward will
12:16 pm
not be drawn. and i really hope that so throughout history like women have come forward and like laid open the wounds of sexual violence that they've experienced through men and throughout history we have seen that the voice and the statement of men usually tends to weigh as heavy as those of like hundreds even thousands of women and i hope that this will change i hope that when up to 80 people and women have come forward to accuse this sexual perpetrator that they have voices where we heard it and that we have finally changed how society. listens to women's voices now when the scandal 1st erupted about weinstein it kicked off the me too movement to that was 2 years ago has anything really changed for women in these 2 yes so not enough but at the same time the need to movement has been recognized as one of the most impactful of social movements that we've ever seen
12:17 pm
throughout history so all the debates that we've seen they are fundamental in changing social norms and behaviors because that's a key fact. a recent study in that has come forward in the u.s. that has shown that when boys show a progressive attitudes towards genda they're less likely half as likely to commit violence afterwards so we really need to realize that it's not only about having violence to end it's about a system of such in the end that we have in our society and it's like a pyramid with the bottom it's it's like. bad attitudes towards women and then it's like the pay gap and then this we're raising to the top we see. rape and violence and the kind of the peak of this pyramid it's like in germany for example every every day a man a husband or partner tries to kill his wife a former wife and unless we recognize that. violence violence

12:20 pm
water supply in manila the capital 40 kilometers away. the greater the metro by then that is very serious we cannot. meet the growing the most without the. philippine authorities argue displacing thousands is worth securing water for more than $12000000.00 people and worth the controversial loan from china of more than $200000000.00 critics say less damaging and cheaper alternatives like smaller dams were ignored as was due process. in the good coming out of but that some were insisting on the law according to the indigenous peoples rights act. but the president to tear to should have gotten our free and informed consent. before he borrowed money or entered any kind of agreement with china. or.
12:21 pm
the government has vowed to use extraordinary powers to force the project through many fear the loss of a way of life in accordance with the rhythms of nature and protective of the environment. that i'm old what about my grandchildren and their children where are they supposed to live what if they relocate us to manila how would we survive when we're not used to life they're. here in the share. madra mountains the stage is set for an ever recurring impasse between the desire for preservation against others insist is progress. and now let's head to the movies and take a look at the 1st big hollywood event of the golden globe awards and the often seen as an indication of what to expect at the oscars which are next month but it was a night off upsets with several surprise win as taking home the evening's most
12:22 pm
coveted prize is. the red carpet lit up with smiling celebrities and flashing cameras as the stars of hollywood gathered for the golden globes award ceremony it's the 1st major red carpet event of 2020. the big surprise when it was director sam mendez down 917 which won best drama beating favorites marriage story and joker. quentin tarantino's film once upon a time in hollywood won best comedy. own and in t.v. comedy quirky hit seriously bad skip the top prize while the show's triple talent writer producer and actress phoebe waller bridge to come the award for best comedy actress for what you believe is only one thing to make me an author many people ruin my life. tom hanks won a lifetime achievement award for his decades of roles and many well loved films. many recipients use the stage to call attention to current events and political
12:23 pm
issues like gender equality climate change and the bushfires in australia. that is facing you straight to gether hopefully we can be unified and actually make some changes it's great to vote but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves we don't have to take private jets to palm springs for the words sometimes we're back with these. comedian and host wreckage of a as close the ceremony asking the audience. to donate to australians affected by the fire to australia have a great time. detainments correspondent scott roxana from the joins me now welcome scott now let's talk more about the styles using their speeches to get political how significant was that they go into notes. well i think it's actually quite significant particularly because the globes opened with host ricky gervais's warning the audience not to use their wards as a political platform he's known for being quite cynical and snarky and he
12:24 pm
deliberately told potential winners to not use as a political platform because people don't care what they think thankfully they ignore them as we just heard there are a lot of political speeches last night led more or less by the topic of climate change that was the biggest issue driven by the disaster of the bushfires in australia and australian are actor russell crowe who except an award in abstention set the tone saying that the bush fires were the result of climate change that people had to take action we just heard joaquin phoenix 2nd that and there are a number of other actors and actresses who won last night who specifically pointed to the issue of climate change but for me the most powerful speech was actually from michelle williams who used her award platform it gave her to speak out about women's rights particularly the right to abortion which many sees might be under threat in the u.s. at the moment so it's interesting because i think it shows that hollywood thinks in this very politically turbulent turbulent time that they have to use the platforms
12:25 pm
they're given to to speak out on the issues that matter to them and not just use the awards thing like the golden globes as a chance to celebrate themselves ok and another issue is net flix taking over the big screen how are we seeing the film was pushed back. yeah it was interesting netflix led the nominations going to the golden globes both in t.v. and film is supposed to be their big night but they came away with just 2 wins out of $34.00 nominations there's been a big pushback against netflix from the film industry because netflix refuses to give their movies a sort of proper theatrical release and the 2 big films irishman from martin scorsese and marriage story didn't really come away with many inspired shorey just pick up one globe and but i think it's not just a pushback from the film industry but also sort of shows that movies that go out on netflix don't have the same cache as big screen or leases i don't think it has the
12:26 pm
same impact if you see a film like marriage story on your couch in your pajamas on on your smartphone or on a on a computer the films that 1917 once upon a time in hollywood those are really proper big epic movies that got proper big epic theatrical releases and i think that has an impact particularly on voters at the golden globes and maybe next month at the oscars right do you have a scott rock star was it that is it to you if you're just going to say watching the news coming to you live from but on his if the top stories that we're following for you. iran's leader ayatollah combination has been leading prayers at the funeral of general qassam soleimani and others killed by a u.s. drone strike in baghdad on friday his assassination has increased tensions between tehran and washington with the drama vowing revenge. and the studios government has pledged the cribbing to fall over a 1000000000 euros to help communities ravaged by catastrophic bushfires that's
