is on its way to bring you more conservation. how do we make cities greener? how can we protect animals and their habitat? what to do with all our waste? we can make a difference by choosing reforestation over deforestation recycling over disposable smarten solutions overseas. so no one is truly unique and we know that that uniqueness is what allows us to live and survive. google ideas, the environmental, susan golden, 3000 on d, w, and online i . this is dw news. asia coming up today is special. look at china's growing power this year, both at home and abroad. the man behind that drive is cheating. pinged his control over china's direction is nearly absolute and puts him on course to be one of the
most powerful leaders in china's modern history. under his rule, china has taken a strong hand in shaping society and trying to silence those who speak out against those in power. and it has shown it's muscle when it comes to its intentions for taiwan. how are your of, and germany handling a rising china? ah, i melissa chan, thanks for joining us. 2021 was a big year for chinese leader shooting pain at the communist party's annual meeting . this fall, he was symbolically elevated to the same status as the people's republic of china's paramount leader. loud. don't buy a rare resolution back to my party members. the document laid out she's understanding of china's past. his vision for china's future. president,
seizing ping hasn't left china for nearly 2 years. partly because of the pandemic, but also because he's focused on building his legacy in july ahead of the parties central committee meeting. he made it clear that he's firmly in the driver's seat at home and abroad. don't want him to, chinese people will never allow any foreign forces to bully, oppressor and slave us. only one who dares try to do that. we'll have their heads bashed and bloodied against the great wall of steel. forged by over 1400000000 chinese people. this year marks the 100 anniversary of the chinese communist party . its official history is the top item on the agenda, chairman mouth. the dog, the founder of the people's republic of china, was the 1st to in shine his role as leader his successor, dings helping architect of the reforms that propelled china's economy to the world's 2nd biggest. did the same. she wants to show that he's an equally important
leader, transforming china into a global power. he wants to make his power felt all across the chinese society as well. he has boosted the military and launched a crackdown that has muzzled the tactile coons like ali baba's jack mar. in recent weeks, she has been stepping a pressure on the sovereign island of taiwan, which china considers its own. but one challenge he has yet to overcome is economic head winds. growth is slowing amid and energy crunch and supply change is russians . and there are still concerns about china's real estate market. she's image has become so elevated and so sensitive that the communist party has sat to curve all of their alternatives beyond its officially crafted version of who sheeting is even to go so far as to force the cancellation of a book. talk this october about she in germany, the author of that book, adrian geiger's told us then why he thinks china is doing all this. but i'm feeling
isn't what they even told us. it's because, you know, there's such a cult of personality around she keeping and now in china and even to portray him as a human b is sir too much and im derived a simple effect. so he was the walls or something like this. we don't care about that. you mentioned in the sentence in the book. even this is too much because there is a show him in china is something like like a super sto even like like a god. and what she says goes, his government has pushed a number of reforms aimed to erode individual ism and push for more devotion of the self to the state that's shown up in the way china has dealt with the pandemic ordering entire cities to get tested, vaccinated, or go into walk down. it's extended to the bedroom with china's birth rate dropping
. parents are being encouraged to have more children. video gaming for teenagers now has a time limit, and there's been a clamped down on high profile, a chinese citizens. any one who comes across as defined of the state has been dealt with harshly as the world saw this fall with tennis champion punch. why? to those living in china punks. why is alive and well? but videos like this one released in november didn't convinced the w t o, due to its continued concerns about puns well being, it withdrew all its tournaments from china. it c e o saying in a statement in good conscience. i don't see how i can ask our athletes to compete there when punch, why is not allowed to communicate freely and has seemingly been pressured to contradict her allegation of sexual assault. china, meanwhile, double down on its stance, suggesting
a vendetta from the west. we'll meet you with our calling. we have already elaborated our position that we firmly opposed to act literacy. i sports yankee doodle to lot. without the senior politician pung, accused of rape, john gully hasn't responded to the allegations. but while china tries to block out the issue, the w t a has been pushing for an investigation. the decision to pull out of china was its boldest step, helped by pung success as a player. china accounts for hundreds of millions of dollars for the women's tour with the beijing winter games just ahead. the international olympic committee is under pressure to do more a 30 minute video call. it held with pung, didn't assuage concerns. it led to criticism that the i o c was playing into china's hands with human rights watch calling it a quote hostage video in a recent
d w interview. and the i o c. you know, it's, think about it this way. if, if you know, you're asked to participate in making, you know, helping make a hostage video, do you jump in and say yes. now of course, you doubt you try to find ways to actually assess the person on protect your own reputation, which is all the ios is doing here. pun has received support from many current and former tennis players who have praised the w t decision. one question now is whether other sports bodies will follow that lead d. w also reported this year on beijing's campaign against wiggers. millions of the predominantly muslim minority have been held in detention camps. but even those spirit imprisonment are subject to harsh surveillance measures. as mathias ballinger reported back in june the surveillance of the weaker starts at the entrance to their home. a few years
ago, faced scanning devices suddenly appeared at residential compounds all over the city or her rooms. they are directly linked to the police. on the outskirts of the city, we managed to film a cluster of data centers. police data and surveillance footage are processed here an app on their phone alerts. policeman once software has identified a suspect under glow surveillance, or those who have recently moved to a different city. i've travelled abroad clar in an official suspect data base, will use an unusual amount of electricity bows. phone is often disconnected. again, we just took from filming what is happening in saint john is seen by observers around the world as a crime against humanity. a system reminiscent of the darkest periods of the 20th
century. the poet by today's technology mathias ballinger, who files that report had to leave china after working there for several years. harassment from citizens and police while out doing his job, made it unsafe for him to remain in the country. now, we can't talk about china asserting its influence. if we don't talk about taiwan, tensions between china and taiwan are being described as the worst in decades. beijing has sent dozens of warplanes to fly repeatedly over taiwan air defense zone, prompting accusations of intimidation with she warning that quote, it has never ended well for those who betray the motherland and quote. so how does taiwan view china's actions? here's t w's tie. pay correspondent william yang. while the mood in taiwan remains relatively calm, defense officials over here one, china could be launching
a full scale invasion against taiwan by 2025. they also set that china deployment of military aircraft into time. once a d i z is intended to wear down the islands air defense. the sako rays on tactics is viewed by many security experts as one of the greatest security risks in the region. because they think in the event like this, if there is any miscalculation, it could lead to a unavoidable military conflict between both sides. however, taiwan remains very confident that it has the capability to deal with the rising chinese military threat. and it does not expect any countries troops to get involved, because they think that ultimately the responsibility of defending taiwan breasts with its troops and also its people. they have also laid out the plans to modernize its military weapons and at the same time also to race the combat readiness of its troops. germany will likely take a tougher approach to china given the new coalition government, the green parties,
and lena bear, bach is now foreign minister in an interview to german newspaper taz. she laid out her vision for berlin's interactions with beijing. thing quote, dialogue is the central building block of international politics, but that doesn't mean we gloss over issues or remain silent on them. foreign policy based on values is always a combination of dialogue and toughness. eloquent silence is not a form of diplomacy for the long term, though many have believed so in recent years and quote, that's careful diplomatic language. but the greens have consistently taken strong positions on taiwan on china and on human rights. we spoke to no, a barkin senior visiting fellow at the german marshall fund for how he thinks this will play out. one area is simply on human rights. i think we're going to see a more outspoken german government on issues like she and john on issues
like hong kong. i think on taiwan as well. we'll see a change of tone from the government. i think another area is, is euro, you know, i think bab bulk has made clear. and this is also in the coalition agreement that she wants to push for a more unified european approach to trying to. this is something that medical under, under outgoing chancellor uncle and math goals. she, she paid lip service to this but didn't really pursue it. and i think was accused by, by others in europe that sort of pursuing, pursuing german interests rather than a broader european approach. and i think, you know, it's, it's gonna mean just more confidence. and burbock said this in a, in an interview this week, you know, europe has leverage over china. china needs european markets. china needs european investment. so taking a more confident approach in dealing with china,
less self censorship, bow book has said she wants to end this sort of culture of silence. that's it for today. there's more on our web site. we'll leave you today with cheating, kings and china. this year has seen him and a party exercise greater control over people's lives, directly in pursuit of his vision of a more powerful and united china. thanks for watching and goodbye with the fight against the corona virus pandemic. how has the rate of infection been developing? what are the latest research, se, information and context?
the corona virus off day, because like 19 special next on d, w. on the road with super heroes. my mission is clear. you can still good antony con. felicia explored germany. they dive in and they check everything out. there's a lot going on in their local. germany tried and tested with d. w. o . germany now has some of the world's strictest rules for people who are not fully vaccinated against coven 19. the country also has
a vocal minority who refused to get the jap, many subscribed to conspiracy theories, and call themselves queered anchors or transgressive thinkers. they've been protesting against the increasing rules in germany, and now many or so fed up. they're leaving some anti vaccines are now looking to get away from the lock downs and restrictions of their homeland even to places as far off as south america. ah. hello, and welcome to deutsch. are those covered 19 special. i'm see from beardsley in berlin. with every wave of cupboard 19 illnesses in germany comes a new backlash from those strongly opposed to the health measures taken in response, including vaccination protests and refusal to wear masks in public places or the actions that most commonly take. some however have gone to more extreme measures. olga and vala cone came to hoa now in december 2020. it's
a small town with around $15000.00 inhabitants in the south of paraguay. it was founded in 1900 by german settlers. the cones appreciate the peace and quiet here in the countryside. make me boil the cones. emigrated from stuttgart and southwestern germany, to paraguay together with vol as brother and his wife. they said they can lead a free life here without cove. it restrictions his own sublime staying healthy for many more years. yama, we have more time for ourselves. that's what it looked like. well, close it out. he had a heaping animals growing our own plants by fagin assigned flanks, were for i li, just living freely. that's to plan more than 1000 people have moved from germany to paraguay in the last year. the cone brothers want to set up a business repairing cars like they did in germany. they hope they can have time for their family life outside of work. they are in glacial
l'oreal, in by the in germany. both of us were employed. we both worked in the long hold act in iraq. the kids were in school and in kindergarten. there were vis. elton olga. we hardly saw each other, but i thought is all wrong sometimes for 2 or 3 days, because i had to work more to earn money. pennsylvania and some of those who have emigrated here are turning their back on coven restrictions in europe. vitaly folks who now works as a pastor for the community and whole anal, explains the ha, number of migrants with his religious perspective, the lobby in paraguay in red, gothic. and then i found paraguay on a world map. coleman and gone said like the time has come and he will be there. he will. and as it was said, bob, the so it came to pass. i also led an online for a more and my subject was a wave of migrants to paraguay. my team, iowa, i novilla,
also on that on the paraguay other members of the german community in holland l. like in a honda who arrived a few months ago from the us, are much more forthcoming about their rejection of the coven measures and vaccines . all of that isn't something paraguay should go along with, she says a cabbage. thus i decided to come here because we noticed that through this harem virus situation, everything was tightening up, becoming more difficult. because in word, more people actually had to flee germany, austria and switzerland. i mentioned, i think they lost their jobs, and soon they won't be able to go out shopping. the funnier i bite stella. and now they're announcing a vaccine mandate type. it's couldn't be in the sean island info slung, and it still remains to be seen just which coven measure is. paraguay will implement in the course of the pandemic. until then,
the emigrant families will try to find their new home here. address sick is professor for socialization. and conflict research at the university of bill of health. here in germany, professor, thank you for joining us on the show. would you ever have imagines that it would get to this point where people would actually immigrate overseas because of coven 19 measures? no. the immigration of groups, especially families, is not a new pet on members of the protests. f already emigrated and support us live abroad. they have emigrated to reasons of conviction as well that to, to escape prosecution. so we have in class we have some and class in canada. we're a former journalist office real estate. we know that one of the most critical spokesman is now living in turkey. we know the formation of the us book community historically it's, it's one of the strategies of the protesters and the denial to come up with the
situation. but what, what is now relevant is to observe what happens in these colonies. is there further radicalization are they producing propaganda so and we need to link it to the multiple forms of protests in the immigration. it's one part of the social media offer a lot of of possibilities to create these parallel societies and communities. you said that it's just one part of this protest. it does it tell us something important about the intensity of the opposition here in germany and other countries, or is it french, how would you look at it? no, we would say that this is one element and may be the last step in the process of radicalization . so the, the one group is leaving the country. the other group are further radicalize in, in to into a polarized ideology and into violence. when we speak about radicalization, i speak about a radicalization into ideology and violet and spent this immigration is one part.
it's a central element. why? because the distancing the distancing to the former system, the distance thing 2 o 2, the former networks. so the distance to traditional and majority norms, andrew is one of the most relevant elements in this radicalization and it's growing every we saw in the last week. we saw around 50000 people in germany in the streets . we have over 33000 right. wingers who count themself among them. we have network of corona deny us the study spied by the university of vivian and edinburgh. estimate that nearly 9 percent of the population of germany belong to the stinger ice and it's a very heterogeneous group. and the distance is the central element. not too long ago, in fact, we saw a torchlight march and from the house of the health minister in saxony. that's a german state. do you expect to see more violence,
especially as we near this debate on a vaccine mandate in germany? nice lazy, clear evidence of her the radicalization when we defined radicalization as extreme ideologies and violence with an increase in public statistics in a group based and, and racist based hate crimes. we see many protests. it's not, it's not that the amount of people is increasing. so, so, so the corona protest in 2022 that we saw a huge protest but, but now it's going very much local and of the people who are now in this movement become very extreme. and the mandatory vaccination this, the topic of monetary vaccination was always the bridge to the center of society. so for example, in spring this year we run a representative, sorry, in germany and 70 percent in this representative survey. agreed to the statement
corona's use us re vaccination and 18 percent party agreed. and this, this mandatory vaccination is not perceived by the protest. us as something which is good to fight the croon club iris. but it is a complete, complete giving up of their freedom. and it's increasing the idea we have to show resistance. and so right now we are losing all, all rights. all right, andreas sick as a professor of socialization and conflict research at the university of feel a felt here in germany. thank you very much. thank you very much. now it's time for you to ask and us to answer. here's of your question for our science correspondent derek williams. why do i need a coven 19 vaccine if it doesn't prevent me from catching the disease?
oh, i think that this question more than any other illustrates how governments and health care authorities have, have really struggled with messaging in this pandemic. i'm to answer it. let's go back over some of the stuff that they could have probably communicated better. at 1st, i think, is the fact that despite really great efficacy numbers from clinical trials, the vaccines that we have are not perfect silver bullets. and we should never have expected them to be. what they have so far proved to provide is some very effective short term protection from serious illness and death caused by cove. it, it would be great if that protection were indefinite but, but there are indications that it might be less long term than we'd hoped. one recent model based study that's gotten some attention, posits that if sars covey to becomes and dominic then re infection and people who
got once could on average, occur again in just 16 months now. if correct, that obviously has implications for durability of immune response in vaccinated people as well. but that's just one prediction. and over the course of this pandemic, it feels like those have proven wrong a lot more often than they've proven right? so i would encourage people to focus more on what we really do know now. um, like the crystal clear data based statistics published by the c d c and the u. s. they've showed that although vaccines haven't prevented coven 19, or it's spread complete. they, they are unvaccinated. people are still 5 times more likely to test positive for the disease than vaccinated people are. and more importantly,
unvaccinated people are 10 times more likely to end up in the hospital and 10 times more likely to die. so does being vaccinated guarantee, you won't get cobra 19 or, or maybe even die from it. no. but for at least a while may be a long while back. seen. certainly do stack the deck a lot more in your favor. boom or science correspond derek williams. there i'm seeing there's the in berlin, that's it for our show today. thanks watching they help with with
