luxury hotel on earth. they celebrating its triumphs in space. the chinese communist party is turning 100 and it's mocking its birthday with a propaganda, bliss, highlighted stability and strength, and justify its increasingly tight grip on daily life in china. to make this week, celebrations will highlight china's rise in recent decades and glorify early days of struggle under founding father mouse on the communist party is ruled china for 72 years of its 100 year history. no other dictatorship has been a successful at expanding international influence, adding military muscle and overseeing economic growth in the park. you will gloss over policies like the great leap forward in which 1000000 starved and the cultural revolution of half a century ago. here and there be no mention of the bloody crackdown on pro democracy protesters a gentleman square in beijing in 1989. you'll
10:04 am
see this week the party will be all about promoting the success of its marxist lennon, its political system, and boosting supreme leader she jim ping, who enjoys more power than any leader since now, john is brian of state capitalism, whether the global financial crisis, while many richer nations floundered and despise initially mishandling the corona virus outbreak which started in new ham. china's economy is back on course. most other countries are still barely coming out of locked down. foot wide. china celebrates there is growing international unhappiness about china's more aggressive approach on the world stage, about the oppression of weaker muslims and shinji young and about the dismantling of freedom in hong kong. and for more or less bringing richard mcgregor senior fellow at the australian thing tank. the low institute and he's written extensively about china's communist party. how has the party changed the country over the past
10:05 am
100 years? well, you know, the pony wasn't empowered until 949 and from 949 until that 978 to change the country a great deal, but it didn't enrich the country. china really only took up up the mouth, died. and since then, if you've got $1400000000.00 people in an economy growing almost every year, about 10 percent, that's not just going to transform china. that's really going to transform the world. and that's what we're seeing unfold in front of us right now. and we're also seeing china, of course, asserting itself more and more on the international stage against the backdrop that you have just mentioned. she's paying, in fact, warning and his speech that foreign forces attempting to bully the nation will quote, get their heads bashed. what do you make of that tough talk? well, i guess, 1st of all, this is for, you know, a domestic audience, but domestic consumption. you know, all politics is local, china is no different in that respect, but i think, you know, there's also
10:06 am
a message for foreign countries, particularly western countries, particularly the united states. you know, china still thinks and also plays up the, the idea that foreigners want to keep china down foreigners want to contain china, cd and ping, use the word today in slave china. in other words, foreigners want to do to china what they did during the colonial period. and that is really a highly motivating line of reasoning for him to use. and it creates a kind of emotional connection with people in china. you can still get very angry and emotional about the past. and we know that, you know, many of the, these foreign powers watchdogs, for example, they have been putting the spotlight on human rights abuses in china itself, for example, engine john. also the cracked on free speech in the pro democracy movement in hong kong. all of these that have come under intense criticism in which direction do you
10:07 am
see the party heading well, very much in its own direction. you know, when china was poor, it took no notice the worst and criticism of human rights. now that it's richer, it's going to take even less notice. and in fact, i mean, you know, is all trying at all manner of ways of 5 back and put its own story, which by the way, have been launch unsuccessful in convincing public opinion in western countries. all of those different issues. you mentioned him, john, hong kong, you know, later on taiwan, they all have their own dynamic i think, in their own sort of, you know, context, but i don't think that china is mind to change direction on any of those issues. in the short term, i'd like to ask you just briefly before we go, you know, presentation paying is set to be world for life if you want. just like to ask you,
10:08 am
how did he pull that off? how has he held onto it and what does it say about the state of the chinese communist party and his whereupon at right now, while it's quite remarkable, he's really overturned, you know, a few decades of, you know, incremental institutionalization of peaceful transfers of power should have been stepping down at the end of next year, nobody is expecting into so it tells you bus number one. he's an extremely powerful leader. number 2, he's a very worried later because he doesn't feel like it's safe for him to step down. number 3, he wants to, he thinks, you know, has a sort of messianic sense of leadership and mission that only he can carry china to the, you know, modern and point that he set forth. richard mcgregor joining us from the low institutes. thank you so much for your insight on this chinese and 10 ari of the communist party. we appreciate it. you're watching d. w. news still to come on the program after turkey withdraws is commitments to
10:09 am
a key international convention d w. nice one of thousands of women who say the state has failed victims of domestic violence. not to the us where the american actor bill cosby has walked free after a court overturned his sexual assault conviction and ordered his immediate release . he was the 1st us celebrity sent to prison for sexual assaults since the beginning of the me to movement. now, 2 years on the pennsylvania supreme court decided cosby never should have faced charges in the 1st place. after striking a non prosecution deal with a previous district attorney. and just like that, bill cosby was free. his scar sped by the walls of the pennsylvania prison in which he'd serve 2 years of a 3 to 10 year sentence. before arriving at his home in nearby norristown, after being helped from the car, cosby gave the camera signal v for victory. his attorney was similarly
10:10 am
triumphant. i am thrilled, and i am pleased that the pennsylvania supreme court, what we knew all along, which was that mr. coffee never should have been prosecuted. part was driven by politics, were quite pleased that the pennsylvania supreme court seems impervious to what is going on on the outside world. and all of that pressure that was placed on the criminal justice system from to me to movement help bring cosby on the scrutiny. he was one of a number of high profile men in show business accused of using their power to exploit and sexually assault women. but only one case against cosby went to court, the alleged drugging and molestation of andrea concerned. the crushing of that conviction as re ignited debate over the ability to hold a fair trial and made intense public pressure and of the efficacy of the me 2
10:11 am
movements and holding powerful men to account. right, right. that's bringing k j. matthew is an entertainment journalist following the story for us from los angeles. so i mean it, what does this mean? now the trial wasn't fair. yeah. you know it's, there's so much legal li surrounding this, but basic, well let me try to kind of dismantle it. basically, a couple of years ago before he was actually charged, the older prosecutor, the previous prosecutor that is in the state of pennsylvania, asked him to come forward to give a deposition in exchange for that he would not be prosecuted as long as he told the truth well, bill cosby came in, he spoke contemporaries only very, very long gave extreme graphic details about the fact that he drug certain women that he had according to him affairs with certain women in exchange for that truth,
10:12 am
he would not be prosecuted according to that prosecutor. well, after all that happened, he was charge, he was prosecuted and he was found guilty. so what this state supreme court is saying now is that bill cosby should have never been prosecuted in the 1st place because they had an agreement on the table that he would not be prosecuted in exchange for his testimony. so because of that, they're saying that this conviction has to be overturn. what people have to understand is that this decision that came out on wednesday does not say that bill cosby is innocent. it is not say that there wasn't enough evidence by these dozens and dozens of women. they came forward and claim that bill coffee, sexually assaulted them. that is something very different. so we have to be very, very careful about how we can find this out with the law. speaking of the law, k j. i mean, is this the ends now of this particular case for cosby and how about other legal measures?
10:13 am
well remember bill cosby is 83 years old and that this case really surrounds just one woman. andrea constant. yes, we all know there's more than 60 women that have come forward and told their story, but because of the statute, limitations, and other lack of evidence in some of those those cases, he was not tried on any of those cases. so for this particular case, it really is the end of it. he cannot be tried, his conviction has been overturned, so it looks like this is really the end for bill cosby criminally speaking. however, there could be many, many more civil suits coming forward. in fact, there is an attorney, glory, all written here in los angeles, who's representing a number of the woman that come forward there were alleging a sexual assault by bill cosby. so he still has to fly to los angeles and give a deposition in that civil case. ok, so it's not entirely over k j. matthews entertainment journalist with a view from los angeles. thanks so much. thousands of turkish women are expected to
10:14 am
protest later today against turkey, leaving an international convention on violence against women. human rights group. say that the move fence quote, a reckless and a dangerous message to perpetrators and has that turkey back on women's rights. i'll be speaking with a human rights lawyer about the situation in turkey, and just a moment for 1st, this report. she looked anxiously out the window. there were any suspicious cars parked out front. is anyone standing by the entrance? this is john who is daily routine. the 31 year old and her son rarely leave their apartment in the west, in turkey city of bolo, any more. not since receiving death threats from her own husband. i'm going to kill all of you. like the slotting, with a blunt news. because he stays as lean do you just and
10:15 am
johns, who continuously received threats like this. and she knows he means every word before she left him, he had abused her for years. he even bade her mother, the police did nothing apart from advising johnson to seek protection at a women's shelter. all meanwhile, are abused the fields perfectly safe. the sun was an older sam. they told me that if i kill you, i'll go to prison for 3 years. you know about shot, but that won't stop me after 3 years. i'll be back out today to jump off. johns, who doesn't believe the turkish state, will protect her. instead, she is turned to the public on turkish media. she's spoken out against her abuser. and the turkish authorities failure to act a bold move, especially now that turkey has withdrawn from the east and the convention. protecting women from violence. president ed, one justified this step by repeatedly claiming that the convention served to spread western notions of emancipation can demit any will not foreigners influence the way
10:16 am
we deal with the issue. we have our own historical and cultural ways, but we will not allow the safety of our families to be jeopardized. these women are demanding the protection of their families too. but in a different way than at one envisioned, they pressuring turkey to respect the international agreement. in the past year, 300 women were murdered and another 117 women died due to unknown causes. now turkish women are fighting back. literally more and more women are signing up for self defense courses like these here, crow, my god, and israeli. marcia lot is being taught that time because it means that women in this class have had enough violence and harassment for men. the course leader has observed mostly young women in her group. this is all to all the different,
10:17 am
more and more 25 to 35 year old women come in. that is not all participants have experience, physical violence sized our kids for kids can just wanted to know how to react to harassment. if the order cleared it, they just don't want to put up with that kind of behavior anymore than the new probably did. john searcy has found another way to protect herself. she's installed the security door in her apartment to prevent her abusive husband from breaking in . but she knows if he's to going to kill her, he will dive under the or he told me himself. he said look at one has withdrawn from the symbol convention, protecting women. so we can kill as many women as we want without being punished. the stumble convention should continue to be respected in our country. it was the only thing that herdsman, the long cor cool, are growing solidarity among women and turkey is also acting as
10:18 am
a deterrence johns, who experienced in our poor support office. she made her case public since then, the threats against her and her family have stopped and looked more on this. we are joined now by tom our to kind of say, a human rights lawyer with the n g o a quality. now, welcome to the program and thank you for joining us. as we've heard the turkish government says it doesn't need the convention because the country's laws protect women. what's your reaction? hello, thank so much for having me in this program. well, the withdrawal from bay symbol coordination is a very negative path and is indeed undermine the protection of women from violence in turkey. turkey indeed has a legal framework that protects women from violence, but that legal framework is not adequate. it requires a lot of improvement to make sure that women are protected from all forms of
10:19 am
violence, not only on paper, but in real life, and the monitoring mechanism of the east gumbo convention, gregorio, in 2018 flag and number of inconsistency and the number of guests in the legislation of turkey, in each policy to additional practice and procedure, failing to protect women against violence. and now with this move, are we throwing from the conversation? turkey sent a powerful message to the world that women's rights are only read the wealth protracted under a local framework in turkey, it does not require any improvement. it does not require taking any additional measures. we indeed, through. and we just saw, i mean to, to illustrate also your point. of course we just saw in that report the husband of the woman explicitly referring to turkey's withdrawal from the stumble convention
10:20 am
saying it was essentially a green light for, for him to, to kill her. in fact, what do you think when you hear stories like that? well, the situation clearly demonstrates that the situation of women's rights and violence against women incur key, which is already very worrying. not, not will, not only improve, but it will worsen. and the person we're responsible for protecting women from violence, people in the governments. people in the law enforcement will indeed rely on that. we throw all of her from the east conventions, as of the evidence of the lack of political, the will of the government to provide sufficient support to women. and it will indeed incurred to the perpetrators it does send a message to perpetrators that violence against women is not a significant issue. it's not a human rights violation. and users will indeed enjoy widespread impunity.
10:21 am
for years, there had already been at large scale impunity of perpetrators for the who committed violence against women in turkey. and it's particularly depressing that the situation will only worsen because of them over the government. or are we throw from the women's rights convention? i have to ask you then in that context, you know, we have heard that there is a protest, for example, that is planned for today. a lot of women also taking self defense into their own hands. we've seen those illustrations, in your opinion, what can be done to push back against the erosion of women's rights. what should be done right now? i think what should be done in turkey and around the world that we should all install the data. we the women in turkey who are protesting against turkeys. we
10:22 am
throw from the symbol convention. and we do need to talk the movement of widespread backlash against the stumble conventions that not only originated in turkey, but in other parts of the world, other countries of the council of europe. but there are bar, right, conservative groups and foresee who are interested, but not impunity for violence against women. and we should counter these narrative and meeks and stereotypes around the symbol convention, which are not true. thank you so much for joining us. tom, on the kind of id say from equality now we appreciate it. thank you. thanks a lot. here's a look at some other stories making news. german president frank felt the shine myers in israel on an official visit. is focused person said the trip which was

10:24 am
travel to florida later today to offer his condolences to the families of those killed in the 3rd time tower block collapse. one week ago, the confirmed death toll has risen to 18 with the recovery of more bodies that included 2 children. as many as 145 more people are still unaccounted for. the wi oliver salad is in their side where he heard from local residence about their response to the tragedy. it's hard to think about anything else for diana winner. every time she takes the dog out, she passes by the collapse champlin tower, the yen us, and survived. the hopes are fading to find more people alive. she believed the tragedy could have been avoided. sad, i feel sad that people didn't really step up and say, it's time we need to, we need to pay attention to this and do what we need to do to many lives and
10:25 am
probably been lost as a result of it. where the south tower was still hundreds of rescue workers are piling through the rubble in 12 hour, long shifts. the risk of further collapses, slowing. the digging and human emotions are another obstacle. it's very sad the times that i've been going up on the pile and you find strollers in baby bottles. it just brings a sense of reality to the moment. you know, it's very touchy. i have, i have kids, myself, a 2018 inspection warrant structural damages to the building. the focus is now on similar, high rises in the county, 40 years and older. as the search and rescue operation continues, inspectors are now checking 40 other high rise buildings for damages,
10:26 am
a large effort that could still be enough if the owners don't have enough money to get the necessary work done. in case of the champlin towers, the necessary repairs could have cost $100000.00 us dollars per unit. darrow arnold who lives opposite the chem, playing tower, is believe something has to change his own theory on why the building was repaired . despite the findings of structural damage, what happened in this case is the city official. inspectors said that there was nothing to worry about imminently. and people breath breathed probably a sigh of relief because they didn't want to find the money to deal with the problem. i assume that's going to change in light of this incident and you're going to have much more care and going forward. much healing is needed in surfside florida. but for now,
