unrelated question if there were people in line to replace you people were leaving and the fact is it was you were not aware of it does not mean that that does not exist ok have a good memory ok there are there are people in minds and in line for those types of positions perhaps you've just not heard about yet. and then amid a berridge of questions now or shut down the entire press conference and then rejected a reporter's question which rightfully upset the reporter who then stood up from her chair and followed it an hour out of the room we've got it we've got to go. rob i will talk to you after the know the iraqi parliament voted wednesday to call for a timetable for the iraq for fortune. it's unclear what exactly agitated now are but it could have been the continuous stream of questions regarding president putin's address but journalists in the room were all defending each other so i wonder if we'll hear any complaints from the
11:31 pm
other reporters i was a fascinating briefing artie's american thank you very much. but meanwhile south africa's parliament has voted in favor of new legislation that could see lamb seized from white farmers without any compensation under the plans white farmers will be stripped of their land and given no financial reimbursement well this runs against the constitution which would have to be amended the initiative comes from an economic party leader julius malema the time for reconciliation is over now is the time for justice we must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land. well malema is a controversial figure in south africa he's been convicted of hate speech and back in twenty sixteen he said he was not calling for the slaughter of white people at least not yet or despite that the country's former president jacob zuma described
11:32 pm
him as a future leader for the rate of murders and violent attacks on farmers and landowners has risen in recent years according to official figures seventy two percent of the country's farmers a white earlier we put the issue up for debate. people to not only. white people out alive from utopian six inches to two they killed our people they stole our land all oppressed us all their land they have his land. taken from us by force and in many instances by must be all of africa including the one the black type of south africa that came from the north that is well documented. therefore the land is the position of the black stripes the only the first occupants of south africa were the korean the son so if they are argument. that should be the way in the sons of the peasant like the one who is now my opponent
11:33 pm
easier for a night in south africa and the land he and infect talking about bequest son i am quite a son he can send my same name only time i ask him to say it he does it it can't because as a foreigner i even want it that day parliament is moving slow and politician we don't trust them they are using this lensing as a political a ball instead of addressing the issue of this legislation could actually be changed to satisfy the white farmers as well there's a lot of corruption involved and that's why the oprah. that was taken from the pro legally in the past to be returned to them is not going as it should go you see this molding in front of me that is the issue. if this goes on investment in this country would stop people who want invasion in their country will go the same way as involved there won't be production and then we have a big spring in south africa about food that's not available to the people of south
11:34 pm
africa. that's controversy in germany and for sex education distributed to kindergartens on that story after this break. a party divided in with out a clear message democrats face
11:35 pm
a fundamental dilemma move to the left and reach out to the grassroots and in the process alienated donor base. continue business as usual the democrats fired up losing. welcome back well sorties in berlin have circulated a brochure among kindergarten stuff that focuses on transgender identity and same sex marriage the booklets designed to help teachers explain the sensitive topics to children has sparked controversy over the reports. and is a city famed for its liberal i think the troops to sex and sexuality.
11:36 pm
but conservatives in the german capital are upset at a new guide for kindergarten teachers that they say goes into too much detail. it is aimed at kids that are too young the idea is to give educators the information they need to be sensitive to children coming from non-binary families say children that have same sex parents or transgender parents it doesn't have the most catchy of names but what it has done is certainly ruffle some feathers among those in angela merkel's c.d.u. party children should be allowed to be children and not be confronted with things like these it's also come in for criticism from the opposition alternative for germany party well it's very simple we believe sex education is important and of course our young adults should know about sex family planning and all the rest but
11:37 pm
please not in the kindergarten give them some space let them be children don't force this issue onto them it's not even a problem for them they want to play around they want to discover the world so please let them be children leave them alone these subjects will come to them soon enough in school or at home when the parents talk about this but not of an age of five or six years that is far too early on the streets of berlin opinion is mixed on when is the right time to be discussing with children issues of sexuality do you think that children in kindergarten should be taught about same sex couples and about transgendered yes yes. because it's so normal nowadays. to be with people surrounded by people in knowledge and their conditions are not gender or sexuality is an older stuff i don't think it's the right thing when they. receive sex. education in school that's enough i think
11:38 pm
there's a stigma on the one hand i think it's ok but on the other i don't dawdle i'm very much in favor of that idea so yes i do and why i think it's important structure. of life so i think children should be taught about all factors of life and this is one of them the left wing coalition of the social democrats greens and the left party that runs in city government are accusing those on the right wing of politics but be overly prudish and unwilling to discuss the issue. after their attempt to scandalize the handouts from section on gender diversity for teachers didn't work the c.d.u. would prefer not to talk about the issue there's very little chance of the pearl in city government repealing this booklet however discussions sex and sexuality and talking about it in kindergarten are set to continue in fact there's a petition going round the house already almost fifty thousand signatures from
11:39 pm
those who want to see this particular booklet stopped peter all of a r.t. berlin. he was staying in germany a small village near frankfurt has been thrust into the spotlight after it decided to retain and nazi symbol. i think. it's just because couple of people don't like. having the
11:40 pm
feeling to know that there's a clock with. story like this. when this bell has been here for some time and no someone wants to get rid of it as a side of this bell didn't do anyone harm or i think there are more terrible things to pay attention to. now the russian film the flop hits screens all the flows day the drama about dissidents writers. had premiered at the berlin film festival where it won the silver bear for outstanding artistic contribution its director alexei german jr told us why he was surprised the full was even show their. simian could you know. in a way that was if such a you know there was that just. a few sleaze previously. so it's
11:41 pm
been you probably could also use a serious case such as you read this is just one. more strongly built. i knew the decisions would be obstructed by the political and particularly personal views of the jury and that's what happened there are a lot of films no worse than are moving and the german pitches one of them were left with no awards whatsoever for the outstanding movie about the brave events didn't get anything all of that is kind of hard to explain because i think there were other intentions than just fair competition but i was amazed that a lot of it was even shown that when i walked by the convention center where the festival took place i saw a person with a book in german about of lot of and another with the same book in english and then a young german guy came up to me and started asking me lot of was about the culture of the one nine hundred seventy s. leningrad culture what kind of struck me was how well our film was received how
11:42 pm
universal and relatable it was to everyone. well women dominated this year's berlin festival with both top prize is awarded to female filmmakers but the lack of female representation across the film industry was discussed on a special panel along with sexual harassment in the wake of the me too movement. junior says this is less of a problem in russia. this is a tough one on the one hand we've got to treat the sexes absolutely equally there should be no gender preferences obviously on the other hand bearing in mind everything that's going on some sort of support for women is important i think we have fewer problems with this in russia i've heard some unpleasant stories but very few maybe because we have less money for less money there is less power less temptation when far back with the latest headlines in just over half an hour meanwhile for more on all of our stories that's what heat up call.
11:43 pm
fifty years ago britain and within two cons are gone as a sleeping pill the dusty sword only images like to share the side effects were terrible but not all known as shown in the large one for boardwalk more here not war. across europe victims are starting legal battles demanding at least some compensation. in two ways first of all the physical damage itself but as well that the constant reminder that the people who actually perpetrated this crime has never been brought the justice and there has been a cover up. a batch or
11:44 pm

11:47 pm
love to hear from you now mary mcaleese was growing up in the north of ireland when the trouble started in the one nine hundred sixty s. she was president of ireland when the good friday agreement secured the peace and one nine hundred ninety eight no one has a stronger personal investment in the peace process so over to alex and maybe my colleagues in dublin. stephen's green doublet on the structure of move toward the leader of the united i wish them but two hundred years on me a little what of the consequences of bread. for the prospects of a united ireland i speak to me marco he's for thirteen years to run our president of this republic what she has to say makes fascinating listening. remarkably is you were the first president of ireland who was born in the north of ireland so you have a great personal as well as
11:48 pm
a political investment in the peace process how much of a threat do you see to the peace process from what's happening with bricks that and with the peace process took really three decades to bring to any kind of fruition the good friday agreement in one thousand nine hundred really was a thirty year job i remember as a teenager when war broke out on my doorstep in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine and thinking it would last a week but it lasted thirty years or took thirty years to take a small community of three million and a half people to construct a really very sophisticated agreement that would secure the future in terms of peace and partnership that agreement was predicated upon membership of the european union it was never in anybody's thinking that at some time one of the parties one of the major parties would withdraw from the union what i'm saying is the good friday agreement on which the piece is dependent is not stress tested against
11:49 pm
a time when the british remove themselves the united kingdom removes itself from the european union i described it as trying to pull a tooth with ten thousand roots and that's exactly what it is it's very messy but one of the most obvious consequences of our peace process is that the militarized hard border between north and south that we used to have has evaporated the only way you know that you've crossed the border is when the vote of all pings you to tell you that you have crossed an international border it makes commerce easy it makes trade tourism easy it makes friendships easy mutual use of each other services whether it. it's health services education services whatever all so much easier now thanks to what membership of the european union linked to the good
11:50 pm
friday agreement vodafone can ping me michael use when she crosses the border has surely must be a technical solution in the twenty first century to avoid having customs force evil of the uki decides to stay out of the customs it's not just customs posts after all i mean it's much more complex than just having customs post but may i say that they at the very idea of having customs posts of any sort ship or description whether they are by camera or paying whatever that does fill me with dread precisely because we have enjoyed from after the good friday agreement we've enjoyed a period of calm and peace with with relatively little violence and we have managed to cut the umbilical cord between public support and the paramilitaries now my worry is of course that the parliament some of the paramilitaries the smaller operations have not gone away they do not enjoy public support but give them a cause and that cause could be a camera on
11:51 pm
a border it could be you know it could be a mobile patrol on a border because here's the thing. we enjoy a completely open and free border after brags that whatever we get will be less than that do you think that you keep politicians the prime minister please or maybe with they were subject to the new norm artists. do you think we've become complacent that they don't understand or appreciate just hope of it all the question of no. between. them and all of mild or all or is that that the political difficulties with in the governing party make it impossible to reach a solution in fairness i would have to say to resubmit to theresa may she like you was one of the very few politicians who joining the referendum came to northern ireland to warn of the dangers one of the very few very very few who bothered to
11:52 pm
take an interest in what the ramifications of breck's it for northern ireland within the european union within the other twenty seven including island the importance of the irish border issue is very well known and the threat that bracks it poses is very well known but i know from living in britain living in london during the bracks of campaign that it was absolutely not anywhere on the agenda it was one of the many many things that were overlooked in the rush to an ill prepared referendum both the world's first post under scottish first minister of joining together it to argue very strongly for scotland will staying with in the single market context to use a formal looked on have any advice for the use of force most of them whoa the bill to pursue that objective given the political situation i think it would be impertinent of may to offer advice to the scottish first minister or the welsh
11:53 pm
first minister or indeed if we ever have one again the northern irish first minister i will always be a believer in the fundamental integrity. of the european project and i would my plea to those who are in positions of leadership is to never lose sight of that great project and there may come a time i'd like to think there will come a time when britain after it leaves the european union will think again. and rejoin this remarkable adventure in democratic politics the dead hand of bureaucracy you know can sometimes you know take the gloss off dreams and but so to condemn these are so too can forgetting what this was all was about because europe is also about peace as well as prosperity and for ireland it has helped to secure both for us where you're passionate european a great angle of fire or a great friend of of britain but isn't
11:54 pm
a small part of yours an irish woman who would appreciate that role reversal of. street having to do phone to phone dublin to get issues raised because it's no i forgot how i find it really depressing because here's what really excited me excited me that we ireland joined the european union voluntarily i used to joke it was the only union we joined voluntarily we didn't join the united kingdom voluntarily but we sat around the european union table with our former imperial colonizing masters and we sat as friends we sat as partners as neighbors and over a period of time we took all the value of these of history and over two or three generations we dismantled them and were able to offer our children something really humanly very decent but it's a hundred years since women in the united kingdom obtain the paschal for choice
11:55 pm
which of course was centralised of the file and obtaining partial freedom one hundred years ago what aspects of of this breaks that process do you see as a as a threat to the rights and the title means for equality of the woman of game over. that's a really interesting perspective on it because i'm not sure that i've heard a lot of people realizing that when we go back to it and your description of women getting the vote as partial is very important it is important to remember that when it was given to women it was only given to women over thirty and those who had property and that is very telling that really over this past century there's been still a huge amount of work to be done in terms of liberating women from all the bricking mechanisms all the proper suppositions and presumptions about women's abilities that held them back from full participation in every aspect of life whether it was
11:56 pm
access to education the professions politics church whatever and we're still dismantling that architecture of massage that underpinned their exclusion from all of those so i think it's a very important question you're is i look at what the european union helped us to achieve for women equal pay equal you know equal right to employment no i'm not saying that we've achieved any or all of those things but they've given us again the infrastructure the architectural structure to be able to navigate to those destinations and we're on our way to those destinations and europe. as structure that assists women in my view and we have to remember that mater much of what we take for granted today whether it's in terms of equal opportunities whether it's in terms of equal pay that the arguments that we make and back of that are supported by european legislation most of it not translated into national legislation that we have structure we don't just have to rely on advocacy we have
11:57 pm
structure and it is that structure which will create the highways to the future that women will course down the other big issue is immigration of course i know that if you look back at the history of irish immigration irish immigration was a great to britain was a huge boon particularly to irish women who could not get work at home take a look at ireland in a relatively short period of time we who were always an ember griffin nation suddenly became a nation of inward migration today almost seventeen percent of our population is non native of irish. and they are highly educated on average they're better educated than us and that's saying something because they island irish are very well educated they have integrated very well into our community and we in fairness have made a lot of efforts to make sure that they did why because our people knew what it was like to be told no irish need apply and we know what it was like to have nothing
11:58 pm
except just your two hands the one length to work on the hall and to work in the dirty job to work for your children so that they would get the education they would become the doctors the dentist the nurses the a conference the politicians the corporate sector and a generation or two generations which is exactly what the irish did we know the story of immigration and if you give people a chance because we were those people. in some american cities the police have built them soon squeeze a reputation of people who walk on the street to the united states who are at risk from the very people who are supposed to protect that were people are no more afraid of the police than if. you can see
11:59 pm
something happening and this is like i don't want to call the cops let that happen rather than call the cops in those young black men lose their lives chasing the owner with their fingers on the trigger you never know better safe than sorry i don't know that someone else is going to say yes unfortunately around and around here we end up killing our guns on the death toll from such precocious place to. a party divided in with out a clear message democrats face a fundamental dilemma moved to the left and reach out to progressive and. the process alienate its donor base continued business as usual martin democrats tired of losing. if anyone thinks that for the sake of joining the european union we serbia would recognize kosovo under the conditions that they impose right now and not on the basis of a dialogue a compromise very wrong once
12:00 am
a compromise but the solution proposed by cost of all albanians is not a real solution. the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education is being supplanted by the right to access education low it's high education is becoming just another product that can be pulled and sold so there's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you could. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now i'm an extremely more high education the new global economic wall.
