1:05 pm
people who are coming ever get behind a huge department of the government, but they don't get permission from telephone to get inside of the government department don't actually when it comes to running, the can see there is presently a power vacuum. when our leaders came to couple, we have leaders, we have a president administered, all of our cabinets has been appointed. when only this take up their positions, they will tell everyone to return to work. she started caught on the docks and lots of people are hiding in their homes. afraid to venture out, what is your message to them? allow people that today or tomorrow we may ask them to return to work. we have announced the national amnesty for everyone. we are not accountable had people say off campus, our brothers, we will not tolerate off can things we have even us the traffic, please do not disturb our drivers and much had been to never, ever disturb african people. they behaved very calmly with the people that wanna un report warn't that ask on the standers face, quote, an absolute catastrophe of hunger, homelessness, and economic collapse,
1:06 pm
unless financial aid is sent urgently. we spoke with the un secretary general stephanie special representative in the country. its edition remains to be tense needs are enormous, nearly half of the population are either half of the children or 5 orientation phase of attrition. basically, there is nothing to eat and almost 600000 people pleased by the dog continues to ravage the country. one of the major issues which we probably did not factor in is how much of the natural disasters drought and the dates are contributing in the, in the driving of what has happened over the years. we have holders for so much on this component of what the driving company, how much we focused on the education,
1:07 pm
how much we focus on health, how much social we're big moving forward. we should do that every time the significant attention to reach are watching the center of the news, the political issues due to the issues that somehow forget about the social needs of the people. the limitation right now is local funding limitation, right? now these are the military conflicts, but the most important thing right now for wind farms so that we can wind partial systems to the people from going to stuff everyone on this done. it isn't a global issue. i've gotten some ease and we how they're looking at the international community. we have my whole life beside that we really don't need help or will determine so many things in the future. and they may be who
1:08 pm
got the woman that we've been meeting the natural disasters, the active development, everyone with reports growing of taliban reprisals. anybody who has worked full well had connections with foreign forces could be in danger. some have already got out of the country but were forced to leave family and friends behind. well, we spoke to one of many interpreters. he works with the coalition forces. during the twin he campaign, he asked to keep his name and location secret. but the moment my, my family is not residing, you know, on private home, they're living in somebody's else home, they're fitting for their live. they, they cannot sleep, they're going to suppress depression because of this whole thing. and, and how long does this continue to hold on to the height?
1:09 pm
i'm scared for them. i'm scared former my, my parents, the entire country is under the siege of to taliban. now that they have those databases and those information are pretty much to have everything about us. i believe that americans are responsible for this negligence. and today's anybody who will be killed as a result of this. their blood will be on behalf of the american government or if i knew that someday the americans will hand over this country back to the same terrorist that we started fighting in 2001. i would not have joined the ranks . i would have not worked with the americans or british forces. we did not knew that some to be there will be a betrayal from the americans and the natural forces of been contacted by many british citizens who are stuck enough to understand. one of the situation with the british citizen with his children stood in front of the base for more than 3 days after being beaten by detail about a number of times and his children got tired,
1:10 pm
exhausted, and sick. finally, after the last time that he was beaten by the taliban, he left the airport and now is heading back to the village and he called me and he was crying and saying that it's better to be killed by the taliban than being here . he related the way in front of the airport in front of my kids and wife. what meanwhile, the clock is taking because despite the complexity of getting thousands out of afghanistan, the taliban has warned the u. s. and allies of consequences if a complete treatment for all is not done by the pen skins own deadline of august 31st. but president biden already said on sunday that they may have to stay past that said, it is understood that the british prime minister will use tuesdays emergency g 7 summit to ask washington to keep forces beyond the 31st to allow evacuation ellis, to continue. journalist jim larry, witness similar panic evacuations in the fall of vietnam,
1:11 pm
then capital sy gone back in 975 and even wrote a book about how people were left behind. he told us that between then and now there are painful similarities and also differences. there are so many parallels now, of course, totally different wars, but the panics end of each of these wars bears so much similarity. the american bureaucracy is much more complicated today that it was in 1975. i see the process for getting visas for africa. interpreters is an enormously complicated process that kind of thing did not exist in 1975 people were getting out much more easily. the issue now is where the americans prepared to get people out there getting them out fast enough. the answer is no. where they prepare back in 1975. we're also not here. scramble and they basically
1:12 pm
avoid all of your aucker. see, one of the famous diplomat at the time said, i am just going to get people out. and it's much easier to ask for forgiveness later on and ask for permission for washington. and he was able to guess with the help of the shelf, the navy, and he was able to get more than 20000 people out on a lift out of. so i go no longer with the destruction in afghanistan has reached america to, with people pouring onto the streets to protest against the taliban, seizing power around the brocade on both the east and west coast from l. a. to washington dc with demonstrators chanting, pre ask, understand, i'm by trade us, you will say demanded whitehouse helps struggling afghan population. it does come as politicians across natal member state plane the u. s. and joe biden, in particular, for the full of us can stand, don't quarter,
1:13 pm
looks at the mounting under 20 years of occupation. more than 2 trillion dollars spent hundreds of thousands dead. it's half the price tag only to get a humiliating defeat and botched evacuation. in return, naturally the president had some explaining to do to the american people, majority of americans, and forgive me, i'm just the messenger no longer considered to be competent, focused, or effective in the job. i haven't seen the only reason we're against this is a place from which ben loudon attacked the united states of america. had this been in another middle eastern country where he could have easily moved from we would have never gone to gas. biden's proverbial house of cards already looks as if it's coming crashing down the atlantic council called washington deer caught in headlights. the administration's job approval rating fell below that of disapproval for the 1st time ever. and the nations allies. well, they are not happy catastrophe. good people. so there were some barriers
1:14 pm
incredibility, one for the developing of international relations, $99.00 sharp. this is evident. it is clear that this commitment by the international community has not been successful. this is the biggest debug that nader has seen since its foundation, and it is an e book of change that we're facing out to see that commander in chief call into question the courage of men. i forthwith to claim that they ran shameful. those who have never fought for the colors they fly should be careful about chris lighting. those who have the united states of america bear the main responsibility for the current situation because of their decision. so leave of garrison in parts over with hasty. they have the main responsibility to make matters worse, said looks like the man, donald trump famously branded, sleepy joe might have been snoozing while all this was going on. i have seen no
1:15 pm
question of our credibility from our allies around the world. i've spoken with our nato allies spoken with nato allies, the secretary state or national security via he's been in contact with his counterparts throughout the world. and our allies, as has the general are for me, i keep calling them in general, but my secretary of defense, the fact of the matter is i have not seen the matter of fact the exact opposite. i've got, this is about america leading the world and all our allies have agreed with that. the seemingly out to lunch attitude and utter fiasco that took place under the current administration has drawn criticism from not just biden's rivals, but from fellow party members as well. i am disappointed that the button administration clearly did not accurately assess the implications of a rapid us withdrawal. the images we saw coming out of of going to start show a tremendous humanitarian crisis. this is going to hurt us. no question about it. i
1:16 pm
think of janice town, his last, every terrorist around the world is cheering. they have watched the taliban defeat america. in effect, president buttons, poor judgment produced the worst possible outcome in afghanistan in only a matter of weeks. even criticism from the media was generally bipartisan secretary blank, and how did president bite and get this so wrong? how could officials have missed fish? how did it happen? how do we get here? does president abide not bear the blame for this disastrous exit from afghanistan? another 3 years of fighting and we're going to be lucky if we have a single ally left. america is back. that was biden's famous promise. but after a colossal failure in america's longest war, ever, many are starting to wonder if he meant america's turning its back on everyone's trust. tom quarter that will that former british prime minister, tony blair, who sent you k troops into afghanistan, 20 years ago, criticized the u. s decision to pull act and said that the justifications given
1:17 pm
were imbecilic. we didn't need to do it. we chose to do it. we did it in a, b, d, and to an embassy. really political slogan about ending the forever was added. the person's involvement in the region was not hopeless despite the taliban. and found that the u. k. has a moral hope, legation to stay in the country until the afghans who need to be who need to be evacuated. but journalist and international affairs specialist richard met her scathing about blaze claims he calls the slogan about ending forever wars imbecility. but he's the one who followed george bush, the laughing stock of the, of the western world in 2001 into 2 wars. both of ghana, son and iraq, and he's the one who could not finish the war for 20 years later. now in 2021 and he's still offering excuses, trying to justify what he did. the united kingdom and the united states did not invade of garrison to help women go to university, even though that's a great thing. they invaded afghanistan under the pretext of nation building and
1:18 pm
posing the taliban and getting all they, they claim that they assassinated they, they got been logged in in 2011. so what are they still doing there? he's the one who started this war in iraq and afghanistan. he was right behind george bush in the warren terrace. so of course, he still trying to justify what he did. still had this concerns grow, i would trans identifying men being placed in female prisons and in some cases, abusing fellow inmates will have a special report on that just off the the the
1:19 pm
ah, is your media a reflection of reality? ah ah, in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for tyson lation community? are you going the right way or are you being somewhere direct? what is truth? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to defend the join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows. ah ah, welcome back in our we return to
1:20 pm
a topic we feel does this more investigation is getting elsewhere? is in the late to the series of reports, we look at the problem of transgender convex, abusing female inmates in prisons around the globe. a growing number of women say their lives have been turned into a living hell by male prisoners who are exploiting the system. and one of the most notorious cases in canada, women found themselves in danger after a predatory male offend, who identified as a woman was sent to that prison. the walk in on him have inspecting the dream in the ball for him, making out with someone else and wanting a free son with me. free women really the morning after bill. someone also had to take the bill, which she used under the assumption that it provides protection from 8th and habitat is be
1:21 pm
going to mean the laundry room one day, telling me how beautiful i was. and he was trying to get his name. he was super weird. all the girls were uncomfortable, shalon and the house with him and everything. he tried to tell me he was in love with me. it was weird. he asked me to leave for him and the 0. i started making out with her and feeling her out. well, i was there. he breck, how many girls his last 3 years. and he also bragged about taking the girls virginity in the library to get details as well as the air limits when there were a few of us there. it was in the living room due in count. i couldn't eat after the braces are inside women's jails rating. our women men are using this loophole to
1:22 pm
access already vulnerable. women who have new voice. so platform to speak from our government is setting out women to be sexually assaulted by these may read what we have requested comment from canada's correctional service, about those allegations and we'll let you know their response when they give it. in the meantime, we'll leave you with starsky. taylor's latest in depth report today, she speaks to activists had the mason, who shed light on the story of the canadian convict and her own experience of abuse . imprison oh, i want to get a sense of your time inside, and specifically how trans inmates affected your experience. i was incarcerated with trans individuals in provincial. that was the 1st time i came across it. and
1:23 pm
then again, when i went to federal and that was when they actually put them on compound with us, instead of segregating them away from us. and they didn't have to have surgery. so that happened in 2017. and what was your reaction when you love that that was trans inmates living in the compound with you? well, i was actually really freaked in provincial because they brought me over to the indirect supervision range. and there is a sex offender there that was fully intact and he was there hiding out because of his crimes. that's what the guard told me anyway that he was trying to peek into my style when they're searching me. so that was my very 1st experience of that, but when i got to federal and i was told that there are men on compound with us, i was blown away. i didn't believe it. i couldn't believe that they were putting males in women's presence. i was actually harassed by one of them when i was inside,
1:24 pm
used to get me to try to walk back and forth in front of them so that they could check out my but lots of other comments as well. and then i was also in the halfway has with a male who was fully intact and it was like walking on egg shells. are you worried that there are people who are going to use the system in order to end up in a female prison? and then come out and decide that he's a man again. well, yeah, there's nothing to prevent them. if they claim transgender identity, you can't say that they're not transgender because you're discriminate against their identity or their expression, and even the one, but do get denied transfer. there are utilizing the grievance system, which is a complaint system or a correctional services with canada. and when they're complaint, it's not resolved. they're bringing it to the human rights tribunal. did you ever inform the gods about how uncomfortable you thought about incident you described of
1:25 pm
sexual assault? and if so, how did they react? so as women, we do not utilize the avenues that are set up for the grievance system and the human rights tribunal. we're just not, we're not taught about it. we don't understand how the system works. and for the most part, women are there. they're dealing with so much trauma, like a lot of them are like constitution, drug addiction and abuse their entire lives. they just accept it as another thing that's happened to them is reality of being female. so there are complaints and there are grievances, but not enough limiter speaking out because they're scared. did any of your fellow female prisoners have similar experiences to you? yeah. some of my friends were like, pushed up against the wall in the laundry room and had time to shut down their throats. they've had their breasts or their time sexual comments.
1:26 pm
a few of them have been sexually assaulted, so to speak to a lot of women that have been incarcerated. and the stories are very similar, same of physical altercation. they've never been punched in the face so hard. they're starting to carry weapons around, which is not a normal thing for women that are incarcerated in canada. they're putting soup cans and socks because they know that they're fighting males and not women. and there's the really, really big power difference between them. candidates prison system allows men to choose to solve the sentence in a female prison. if they say they identify as women, they don't need to undergo any sod, true or hormone therapy. that what is enough fuel far to say this is in the name of the quality and to ensure the safety of transgendered, the law change was pushed for by prime minister justin trudeau. himself. will you
1:27 pm
do your best to ensure that trans women are put in prison or prison, more appropriate to their gender identity? yes, i will ensure that i consider myself to be a fairly strong advocate for. for l g b t q 2 issues and fairly aware of all the different pressures and this wasn't one that i had ever thought of. so thank you. have a mason whom we just heard from, says the government has to rethink its approach to the whole issue. nobody wants to speak about it, they don't want to report on it. we're being told that we're lying, that it's not happening that they get used at retrans. there's literally no discussion about it. there is no discussion before any of the policies that were implemented. and i feel like there are solution to this, they have the room in men's institutions that have wings and dorms and they can
1:28 pm
make l g b, t q wings, better tailor to fit their unique needs over the united states. similar concerns have been raised. for example, by the case of janai at one row, a transgender woman in illinois who was transferred from a mens prison to a women's facility bubbles off to she alleged mail inmates had sexually harassed her. but in her new prison, monro herself was accused of raping a female inmate at the thought of the california past its own controversial law. now it allows trans inmates to be transferred to facilities that align with that gender identity below was adopted in january by may, over 216 transfer requests had been made. and that left some female convicts very worried. i will not be a victim anymore. i haven't do with sexual abuse as young as 4 to 8 and with the rape as well as numerous main staff correctional officers being an appropriate ever
1:29 pm
since california. as as b one for 2 has passed, i have been living in constant fear. i can't mentally function without fear. if the men come here, please help us. i'm scared just because they feel like a woman doesn't mean the penis doesn't work. we discuss california law with alex horon, a co founder of partners for ethical care, and founder of the agenda mapping project. she says the well being of women prisoners is simply of no interest to legislators. senate bill 132 is, is like a sentencing women who have committed whatever crime to the punishment of sexual violence at the hands of meals. and i think that in terms of the pyramids of nice, gavin newsome and got winner and every other enabler who had the largest to happen,
1:30 pm
views, the feelings of and the physical safety of incarcerated women at the bottom of that terra mit of needs. when we of course understand it has to be at top ortiz keeping a close eye on similar developments in the us and elsewhere in the world. and we'll have more features on the issues raised took off. ah, the long when i would chose the wrong. why don't just don't the rules yes, to see out the thing becomes the after kid and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground.
