3:32 pm
a ceremony of pomp and patriotism, the party have its ro in leaving the country to grove and strains. president shooting thing says the era of china being slaughtered and bullied is gone forever and gives a warning to foreign powers. i say, john, anyone who is trying to do so will have their heads bashed, bloodied against the great wall of steel. forged by over 1400000000 chinese people hung up po for the all the ceremony to place at being gentlemen square the same place where pro democracy protest is faced a brutal crack down 3 decades ago. but there was no mention of this event, nor did a party mentioned any of its other failures, including the more feminine of the great leap forward and the cultural revolution.
3:33 pm
a period of ideological frenzy in the fifty's and sixty's. instead, the celebration focused on the display of achievement and promises to keep the countries territorial integrity, which includes completing what he calls who bringing this occasion with self route and high one. highlight being called this and historic mission and spoke of an unshakable commitment of the communist party of china. and she told china's conflict with taiwan. it's suppression of democracy movement in hong kong and human rights abuses against the weaker minority have drawn widespread international criticism. oh, what does that mean? home me, despite mounting pressure, the poppy vows to stand firm, to fulfill what it calls the chinese dream of national rejuvenation.
3:34 pm
it's a demon fact the president, she has himself articulated in the past. and the goal of it is a sense of self confidence and pride in being chinese and trusting the communist party with leading the nation. the same party that began life 100 years ago in secret, in a shank i house. today the party is self assured enough to demonstrate to foreign journalists how members are schooled in its political ideas. the it is back to class for these middle aged students, communist party officials from all over china, has been sent to this academy in shanghai for training. today, session is an overview of china relations with other countries. focus on foreigners, we have supported china's communists. certainly not a coincidence is on this day, the academy is welcoming a group for enjoying the 1st time. it's a message from
3:35 pm
a more search china to the world july you will actually was your found, the china has been called the sleeping lion. now everybody feels that the lion has woken, but this line is benign. it's a civilized line, a lie and open to corporation, who wants to peacefully co exist with the people of every other kind of what the needs. however, the tension arising between china and the west as well as they jing in some of its neighborhoods. it is here that causes idea logically groomed for this. becoming a member of the communist party is part of a strict selection process. and once they've entered the party, they send to academy like this one, to make sure they know the party line. there are more than 2000 such schools in china. the shanghai academy is among the top 5. it's trainees are mostly senior
3:36 pm
officials, part of the training, an overview of technology made in china. the communist parties, official historiography, omit the calamities of the 20th century instead and draws a straight line from the revolutionary beginnings to 2 days economic achievements. to the course a systematic one, party party history and parties, period. and because shanghai is pioneer city and economic development and reform. we also learn a lot. but the economic policies and records of indian china us this leafy campus has seen almost 150000 officials, complete the course. in the last few years, the party has tightened its ideological grip inside china and become more assertive to was the outside world. the school cried itself and having trained many of chinese government spoke to people will know who not what you made its own. we tell students to face international media and an honest way to tell the truth,
3:37 pm
but we also warn them. international media are not what you are used to, our carters, i used to the domestic environment, so they need to know that among poor media. a few ask questions to set a trap for them. who saw, no matter how many nice things you tell them, they will report on the negative things vanya, for me, i'm at the school entrance slogan. spell out the word confidence in multiple ways. as if the trainees still needed a reminder. joining me for more from washington dcs. pizza martin. he's a journalist as reported from china, and he's also author of the recently released book, china civilian army, the making of both water diplomacy. peter, welcome, the tom wolf, 40 or something we've gotten used to hearing quite a bit here in europe. what easy it and is it a metaphor for china's interaction with the rest of the world?
3:38 pm
yeah, thanks very much for having me. i guess more worried diplomacy is, is this term that's given to this brand new approach that chinese diplomat, that taking? well, you know, in some cases they stormed out of international meetings. they've told foreign counterpart to shut up and tell them that china can no longer be elected. and the way that those diplomats, the behaving is in some ways seen as kind of a metaphor, a broader muscular approach to chinese foreign affairs. why is china acting in this fashion? i think it comes down to 2 things. i think on the one hand, there is new competence that china have, you know, it navigated to 2008, 9 financial crisis. and most recently, it navigated the current of iris pandemic as western countries, in many cases struggle to control the outbreak. so there's
3:39 pm
a new kind of competence in the chinese system and what it can achieve. on the other hand, i think there's also this and during insecurity about china's place in the world and also on the part of many chinese officials as an insecurity about what the future holds for them. teaching, paying his purged, you know, many thousands of members of the communist past the he's abolished presidential candidate and he's experimenting with re education camps in infringing. and so there's a little bit of nervousness that too. and i think sometimes the way of dealing with that nervousness is back all aggressive and nationalistic. you know, it's got yourself if it's not something that is encouraged by the party and the government in general. yeah, no, i think that in general, the assistive tone is encouraged that has been this idea. you know,
3:40 pm
china is strong enough now to be able to make its own case on a college actively. and that it doesn't need to hear criticism from the outside. and so i think that who's very much been encouraged by the thing for leadership. i think that barrow individual cases, you know, i think of, for example, when, when foreign ministry spokesman jelly jin spread, the conspiracy that the us army had stopped at the kuranda virus pandemic. and i think that was hugely controversial. create that all kinds of problems and their relationship between china and america, and that kind of tactic probably wasn't sent for the faction, but it was something that chow thought perhaps fitted with a broader mood the ship was promoting. this increase a sort of institute of to i wonder how that ties into what the president she just been keeps referring to as the great rejuvenation of china. i think i think it very much fit into it. you know,
3:41 pm
she has been very clear that he expects china to be a world class power by 2050. and that china has a model for its domestic, posted, its economics that the rest of the world would do well to follow. and i think when she lays out that kind of very, very confident vision the where china should be and how china should be seen. it's quite natural that diplomats would kind of take heed of that and stopped to follow his lead. what does this mean for the other nations in the world and looked at more specific? what about the nations in the immediate vicinity of china? in asia, i'm thinking of india, i'm thinking of, say, the philippines or region such as taiwan, which have had long running disputes with china. what does this new assertiveness, this new idea that china is a world class power mean for these nations and their relations with china?
3:42 pm
well, i think it's a really interesting question because i think the answer to that is, is changing kind of week by week at the moment during the trump administration, when relationships with us eyes were frayed aging, seem to feel like a good treat countries. i'm trying to periphery as one it and there would be limited consequences, you know, make them um, it could offer inducements in many cases and believe that it could get what it wanted. but the, the, by the ministration has come in with this focused on alliances, multilateral affairs. and this is like the, the countries can work together to the council, the china challenge. and it's going to be very interesting to see if paging is able to recalibrate some of his foreign policies, particularly when it comes to countries like like india, philippines, as you said, where the have often been on the receiving end of that new assertiveness. i'm trying to pa last to watch out for about
3:43 pm
a pleasure talking to your peter martin. thank you so much for joining us. thank you. and that's if the date is, of course more analysis on the chinese communist parties. 100 year anniversary on our website did. dot com forward slash a shout back again tomorrow at the same time, to see that the the fight against the corona virus pandemic. how has the rate of infection in developing? what does the latest research say information and contact the corona virus. the 19th special next on dw. can you hear me now? yes. yes, we can hear you and how? germans, how we bring you, uncle mac, or as you've never had before, the fries,
3:44 pm
just so with what is who is medical? really what move back to people who follow along the way. admirers and critics alike. and how is the world's most powerful woman shaking her legacy? join us for macros? last, the the nurses have been on the front lines of the pandemic since the very beginning. every animals were working in a state of very high stress and shown in the psychological tension has gone through the roof of secret ology ellis stay late. many paid for their service with their lives. the world health organization estimates that 115000 nurses worldwide have died in connection with a corona virus infection. is the nurses hard work being given the
3:45 pm
appreciation that deserves many are still waiting for the financial applause. and they are demanding better working conditions. how can it be that the heroes of the, from demick are still struggling for recognition? welcome to your covered $900.00 special. i'm chris, kolber, and berlin. despite their heroic efforts, health care workers around the world are now learning that they are subject to a rather unforgiving system. takes pain, where more than 80 doctors and nurses themselves fell victim to the corona virus. the government promised to improve working conditions, but instead with infection rates, declining thousands of health co workers have already been laid off or soon will be w young. philip shots reports from valencia in eastern spain, laura, almo. deborah has been told her services are no longer required here on the coven
3:46 pm
1900 ward. but she still has her hands full. many of her colleagues at the valencia clinic argon in the surrounding region alone. hundreds of nurses were let go over night. many of her co workers were informed that they've been laid off in a text message. and so this a people, and i think it's shocking to find out your employment has been terminated like this for somebody they get. it shows 0 respect for the people who gave everything during the pandemic. they could call up here at the time they were urgently needed for the system to keep running. let me go out. i can think of now it seems as if they are just disposable from all, but now they will try to be a standing ovation for health workers, the heroes of the pandemic. when spain was particularly hard hit by corona virus, in march 2020 thousands of nurses were hired at short notice. many fell ill. some even died of the virus. but now that cove at 900 numbers are falling across the
3:47 pm
country. these nurses are no longer needed, more than 1000 nurses have been laid off here and the balance their region in the past few weeks, the loan for thousands more that professional future uncertain. within a few months, they seem to have gone from heroes up the damage to redundancy personnel. the layoffs have led to furious protests here. most of those who have been sacked are afraid to speak to us on camera. only one person is willing to speak anonymously by telephone. he tells us that he and his colleagues feel abandoned. when the virus happened, we were short of everything we needed to fight it. we were brutally overloaded with work. we couldn't even take care of our own health and that had extreme effects in our private and family life. now it all seems like exploitation to me. the sort of in recent years, spain has made massive cuts to its public health system. more than
3:48 pm
a 3rd of medical stuff only have short term contracts, and many clinics have been privatized. during the pandemic, the government promised improvements, but instead, the situation is worse and, and get those in charge, haven't changed their tune. and most had to currently making great efforts to create more permanent positions and to ensure that fewer people have to work in unsafe conditions. we hope that the situation will improve and 2022. i mean, i know that got, i mean, then do those for nurse laura almost ever and her fired colleagues, there could be some good news, at least for now, many of them will be reinstated over the summer to fill in for others who have gone on vacation. that's good morning. this with howard. catherine is the ceo of the international council of nurses. i see enemy joins me from geneva and switzerland. welcome back to our show, howard 0, respectful, the people who gave everything during the pandemic as one nurse called the sacking
3:49 pm
of health care workers and the report you just seen. do you agree? i think this is a shameful way to treat nurse susan health care work is these are the people who have put themselves ahead of everybody else who gone to work. knowing that there's a greater risk that they might become infected, haven't had the personal protective equipment that they need have often separated themselves from their family. so as not to present a risk to them who have stepped into the shoes of relatives. they are not disposable. they are indispensable, they are the heart of our health care systems, and we're seeing around the world nurses who are angry at this lack of recognition and respect and increasing strikes in european africa and pacific region as well. on that note, i have coworkers do have a huge leverage particularly now,
3:50 pm
and they've been demick if protest grew more nurses went on strike, that would create enormous pressure for their cause, wouldn't it? we went into this pandemic, 6000000 nurses, short a globally. we've got aging nursing workforce in many countries. we've got nurses who have left because to burn out because of anxiety. we don't know the impacts of long copays. the last thing we can afford to do is to lose our nurses, our hospitals, all clinics, without stuff, without nurses, that just empty buildings. it's the people that matter and we should be investing in them and protecting them now. and then it gets at a different stage in different parts of the world. do you see situations improving for co workers in areas with high infection rates because of the lessons learned earlier elsewhere. we are seeing many places where nurses are taking on increasing leadership positions. there at the
3:51 pm
forefront of the public health messages organizing systems of care as, as well. and the situation is improving. but we are also seeing areas where the virus is resurgent and there is a huge issue at the moment with the in equity of access to vaccines for nurses and health care workers. there are nurses and health workers in some parts of the world still waiting to be vaccinated, whilst younger people are being jobs in other countries. we all know we're not going to win this race against the virus on our own. as nations, it is a global race and we need to see much more sharing and solidarity and cooperation around the world. and then i see in the report published earlier this year and says, studies across regions suggest that the panoramic has exaggerated the stress and anxiety of felt by nurses and other health. co workers. what do these people suffer
3:52 pm
from? in particular, we have seen huge physical and psychological impacts on nursing and health care stuff. physical exhaustion, insomnia, burn now and stress, but also the emotional burden of being away from your family looking after people, more people who are seriously ill, who are fearful. more people who are dying on top of that, we have also seen examples of discrimination and violence against nurses. people who may be ignorant or fearful. but you know, nurses have not been able to renew their tendency because their landlord is worried that they spreading the far as nurses having difficulty accessing child care for their children as well. and nurses being subject to the covey denies who was saying this whole thing is a hoax. we corpus a mass traumatized ation of the nursing workforce. and that's why we need to be
3:53 pm
focusing on the recovery of nursing and health care workforce right now. howard, captain of the international council of nurses. thank you for your thoughts and cute getting the right jab has for many people been the most promising way to protect themselves against a severe corona virus infection. vaccines have been subject of many of your questions. here's one and our science correspondent, they're going paul, every country has a different strategy to prioritize vaccines. what does the science say about how to best allocate them? oh, we're still in the middle of the biggest vaccine drive in history. so evaluating the moving data on this topic is really a pretty tall order. to be honest, i don't even know if looking back in the years to come. if will be able to say
3:54 pm
anything with certainty about whether a countries might have prioritized the right groups for vaccine allocation in the right order. that's because the demographics are so different in different countries that, that making blanket statements about what works best can, i think, provides that best just rough guidelines. there are just too many variables. the big problem is that allocating vaccines means making choices that are at odds with each other. the most obvious of those choices is whether to cut down on the death and suffering caused by the disease as quickly as possible by vaccinating the most vulnerable 1st or to instead try to vaccinate those who are most exposed so. so those who will catch the disease most often, and hence,
3:55 pm
really dr. further transmission countries with aging populations, like many here in europe. when for the 1st option, they decided to prioritize the elderly group that's most at risk if they contract covered 19. and that choice seems to be working at preventing death and suffering. a british health care authority, for instance, has estimated that the campaign there, which focused on getting elderly the shots 1st, that it's have over 30000 hospitalizations and, and 10000 lives so far. but that's also left a large segment of the population, younger people, unvaccinated for many months. and of course, as the group that's most regularly exposed, they're now fueling a new outbreak there. so what's the best prioritization strategy?
3:56 pm
i don't really know if you can put it that way. i'd say that there are just strategies with different outcomes. me and that's i shall fall. more checkout are covered 900 section on the w dot com for now . thanks for watching you next time. ah, the news . the news
