8:03 pm
a government facility. since then, the united states, canada, and the european union and other major destination have followed prices for flights and rapid pcl, tast skyrocketing kim cur, who is the founder and lead volunteer of community circle home south africa had for the last year been helping travelers in and south africa navigate the regulation. she's been inundated with calls apart from people running out of money. funds that they had that they had thought that was going to cost them to be. medical aids usually only cover you for a certain amount of time abroad. travel medical cover only covers you a certain amount of time that's going to run out. people have to get back to jobs. schools are going to open soon and the people trying to get their children home. the sense of loss is going to be felt because people are feeling like they are
8:04 pm
really trapped and they're becoming more and more frustrated and see more and more tears. what i'm hoping is that governments can put measures in place that not just citizens, but family of citizens. if you can show just show proof of some ty to that country, that those people will be allowed entry. even if it means extra p c r testing, or it means a little bit of quarantine with retesting in that country. but people have to understand that these a human beings. these are people who have got a need to travel, not a one. it is not clear where the army convent 1st emerged. scientists from south africa were the 1st to note the world health organization. the south african government has criticized international community for rushing to ban travel before the variance is properly safe and is concerned about the damage, the bad will to both travel and business. for now, the fate of people stranded f. s a port is unclear as well. struggled to deal with
8:05 pm
the new 300 south africa. so many questions, mounting around the new omicron of variance. we spoke to helen reese from one of the largest research institutes in south africa to find out her 1st hand experience of the strain. the concern about this variant is that it has a large number of mutations many more than we've seen before. some of these mutations we've already seen on other variance, and we know that they can be associated with increased trance this ability and possibly increase what we call immune escape. what that means is that they're more resistant to the protection that you get from vaccines. we've also seen that mostly initially in young people, that's probably because young people are like they are all around the world getting fed up with all of the restrictions and what they are describing of the same sort of symptoms that we've seen with other covered infections. so fever, headache, muscle, lakes, fatigue,
8:06 pm
cough and i haven't yet heard anyone talk about the lack of smell and taste with this variance. we also have noted, and this is the true if you seeing the reports that we're getting from other countries as well, where they're also now identifying cases that people have been vaccinated in some cases fully vaccinated. so what we don't know is whether, what this variant is, is managing to do is to overcome vaccination completely. the antibodies that you get from vaccines completely, probably not. we're still hopeful that the faxes will protect against severe disease. and with the other variance that have emerged we've, although we've seen a reduced or reduced response to, to the vaccines. we have still seen protection against severe disease and death. we've also spoken to the head of the russian direct investment fund,
8:07 pm
which is overseeing the global distribution of the sputnik vaccine. he says, a range of different jobs is key to finding the pandemic and new strengths. i think it's very important to investigate was in your very out a so far as to think has shown to be incredibly effective against all the different mutations. and we will share some good data, hopefully a little bit later on a grade or efficacy against delta marion. so it's a numerical force has to be started and we need to see how efficient as exists and like seems like games in your area. but also weekend really quickly about vaccine when you variant, if needed and we believe that different counsel at portfolio, different like seats. we see that monopoly off and we're in the back fence in europe failed to protect europe. so it shouldn't be about em. are they monopoly it should be about or to fully or different extent acknowledges include in rush and vaccines, chinese vaccines, other vaccines from britain astrazeneca is very good. and all this report folio
8:08 pm
different vaccines can countries themselves. meanwhile, how do you appropriately turn up to work with cove it as if this is the question that plays the check president? has he prepared to emerge from his sick bed to swear in the countries new prime minister? he turned up with health workers in hazmat. suits and rolled into a glass cage in his wheelchair for the ceremony. in addition to being covered positive, the president had previously spent 6 weeks with an un related illness away. the new p. m will take power and prague after being elected back in october, staying with cove it as fears mount over the new variant, omicron, and countries tightening restrictions. san francisco mer, london breed was spotted floating her own mask mandate by hitting the dance floor in a night club. without a trace covering the
8:09 pm
san francisco may a london breed. he's seen at a party in san francisco, not wearing a mask indoors violating her own indoor mask mandate. meanwhile, children across san francisco have to wear a mask while learning through the week. party like it's 1999 without mask while you feed is fallen apart. london breeze already got cold once before violating her own rules and had plenty of excuses. and here she is. again, she is not the only one. the american president himself spotted mass close in a shop in massachusetts, despite repeatedly telling americans to wear them in doors. joe biden announced a covert action plan aimed at tackling the pandemic earlier this year. it includes mask wearing and social distancing, and the restrictions will be kept in place until some time. next year we spoke to radio host and political analyst. dave perkins thinks that politicians should set
8:10 pm
a better example. they are lying to the american people when they attempt to force americans to wear mask. and the proof is quite clearly there on your tv screen that the leaps themselves don't bother with the masts. we've seen time and time again where groups of the leads in meetings are told by a camera man. we're going live in 30 seconds and they all scrambled to get their masters on before the camera goes and the lights come on. and then when the camera is finished, doing its work, the masks some right off again, they never wear them in private. they never wear them inside closed rooms where they don't expect to be seen. they only wear them for show. it's quite clear the elite in america do not think masks are necessary or don't think that they do anything or both. but they're still happy to thrust that restraint on the public and to punish them when the public does not meet the requirements of the law. gigantic, visible hypocrisy. alright, renewed pen demick clamp down across much of western europe as far as widespread st
8:11 pm
unrest and clashes with police. however, the european union is distancing itself from the tough security response, saying that's purely a matter for national governments. ah, since the european commission was not present at the scene of the riots and is not a police organization, it is not in the best position to comment on the actions of the police of the e you states. the maintenance of public order is strictly within the scope of the national forties of the you states and is supervised by the national courts. and the european commission is not in the best position to make specific comments. earlier this month, add an anti locked down protest in the dutch city of rotterdam, $51.00. the rest were made, and 3 people hospitalized after police fired,
8:12 pm
one shot similar scenes. 2 in the hague were 7 arrests were made, and over in austria, demonstrators were met with a heavy handed police response after the announcement of mandatory covered shots. there have also been large scale marches across france and belgium as well. and while the e u is refusing to condemn tough crowd control tactics in its own member states when it comes to certain other countries, it takes a very different view. the detention of over a 1000 demonstrators and violence used against them by the russian authorities across the country today. threatened the fundamental freedoms of expression association and assembly in the russian federation. fish to the people in hong kong, the support of in union toys now autonomy and fundamental freedom. we will continue to stand by the people are hung,
8:13 pm
barouche and stitching to the streets. we smash protests and towards the violence against this peaceful protest us was shortage. and an acceptable return, then this brutality and expect a full and transparent investigation. kiddo is pretty sad. i would like to read to write to the right of the cuban people to express their opinions in a peaceful manner. and i want to ask the government to allow these peaceful demonstrations and to listen to the discontent of the protest. as former newspaper editor, look, we're very thinks brussels views on human rights are riddled with contradictions. europe, the european union have been commissioned all the land. they think we think somehow all europeans that we are gods gifted that we know what is good for the people in the world. we think that on human rights, our position is, was the right one. so sanctioned people. we sanction being mar if you're just done an african countries, asian countries, china and russia. of course,
8:14 pm
the arch villain isn't the whole standard because i was astonished as your pin citizen. to see that in the netherlands. one of the most, the more state of our countries in western europe, the police had to shoot with real bullets in the crowd. the press was very silent about this. it was in the press, but they did not insist while to me, it's something incredible. it's the 1st time since the last world war that we have to police in west of year shooting directly and people walk. there were some problems just after the war, but, but not that much. so ok, good reasons that work black blocks, you know, extremists were there in the groups demonstrating but still in western europe, shooting with real bullets and the crowd. and then we have lessons to give to other countries. great. that there was a problem that obviously missed on the land should say something, even if it's not aimed at the dutch government for rocks. now,
8:15 pm
it should be in that old government's asking for restraint. that's a minimum that she should say. still had the program as it's in the search teams worked to recover minors, bodies from the siberian coal mine in the wake of a catastrophic explosion. we get the expert opinion of a disaster investigator on some of the challenges they may face up so much more coming up shortly. hello, driven by drainage shaped bank concur sent those with
8:16 pm
dares sinks. we dare to ask oh hm. gary and proverb says you can put everything under one hat. it means that the same rules can't be applied to every one. and yet this is want view to pass signed up to when it entered the european union in 2004. today hungry is accused of all possible sins against democracy. now does the or bank government feel about its future and place in the european family? ah, welcome back. this is our to international. now search teams are working to recover bodies from us. i buried coal. mine were an explosion on thursday led to the deaths of 51. people,
8:17 pm
including 5 rescuers. emergency crews have had to stop work several times due to high methane concentrations and fears of further blasts. the bodies of 5 miners have been found at various stages since saturday afternoon, 300 meters under ground. there had been a moment of genuine hope earlier when a rescuer who had been presumed dead managed to get out. his survival was described as a miracle. he is now in stable condition in the hospital and described what happened . i feel better now that i'm getting all the necessary treatment inside the mine. i was lucky to find a place where the fresh air was flowing in. so that gave me time to lie down and get my strength back. i had all the life saving equipment with me. later i stood up and got out following the stream of fresh air. and finally my the local rescuers team for which i'm thankful. now efforts to stabilize the mine have been going round. the clock in nitrogen has been used to clear out the dangerous method that
8:18 pm
is built up inside the mine and poses a risk of explosion. now at this point, there are literally no chances that anybody has survived was trapped inside. however, the destroyed family members are still hoping that there could be some miracle and that their loved ones could still be alive. yeah. yeah, my son is down there in the mine. as his mother, i failed that he is alive without some hope. when one man was found alive, he see if that man spent a day down there and survived. it means it's possible to survive. but we are tall, people die in 2 or 3 hours due to lack of air minus her aunt at their bramble. they are already counted his dad just like that. matt has survived. now it's hard breaking to watch those scenes. there are still many family members who haven't lost hope, and their hope was only bolstered by the miraculous recovery of a rescue worker who was presumed dead on friday. and having spent almost an entire day trapped inside the mind, the 51 year old alexander's
8:19 pm
a garage and somehow managed to get out of that mine. his condition right now is stable. it's expected that he will make a full recovery and make it back to his wife and son. but unfortunately, the same can't be said for the others who are trapped inside the mind. 51 people ultimately died and people are now wondering how this happened and what led up to this. a criminal investigation has been launched, and 5 people have been detained and arrested. the director of the coal mine, his deputy, and the person in charge of the exact mine have all been detained and also 2 safety inspectors who are accused of faking a safety inspection just a week before this tragic explosion. now all these people have denied their guilt, but nevertheless they have been arrested for 2 months, pending further investigation. but one thing that has become clear is that this line has been plagued by safety issues. apparently, most of the minors knew about these issues and the reported them to the higher ups from one rosco's. honestly, i remember my brother in law telling me about
8:20 pm
a methane program in the mine, the even that's resorts to various methods, to decrease the level indicators in order to get work done. he occasionally let his former head know about the situation. he wondered how he could work in such circumstances. the minds management was aware of what was going on. he thought my husband came home and every time he was saying these won't and well, all the sensors were beeping down there. he sat, that's the conditions i will minus have to working at the moment. now, all of these reports will be taken into account by the investigation, which is trying to get to the bottom of what happened, how it happened, what led up to it, what were the underlying causes, and ultimately, how to prevent such things from happening again. but while that investigation goes on and rescue services continue working on securing the mind and recovering the body's relatives are still distraught and demanding more answers. dmitri powell, arts, he camera among the survivors of thursday's explosion. dozens are injured. a list of their names is on display at the entrance to the mine, maddox. save that. they are making
8:21 pm
a strong recovery and are still in stable condition. and let's re look wind a little bit and take a look back at how the tragedy unfolded over 50 dead out. they horrific mine. explosion inside barrier 8 30 am november the 25th the mind with 285 people inside filled with smoke. after a methane explosion, a more than up with 9 am november the 25th actuation and rescue work starts reports of 1st casualties authorities and now there is no contact with at least 37 people. 5 pm, november the 25th rescue operation suspended in mid bears, if possible,
8:22 pm
explosion without 30 minute. still missing, rescue a se. there's not much hope left because it's minus have only 4 hours of oxygen supply. 10 pm, november the 25th group of rescue workers fails to come up after the threat of explosion. latent 3 of them were found day. oh no. on friday. oh, good. i deal with 3 15 pm, november the 26th. a presumed dead rescue work came out on his own raising hope among desperate families of mine as it is not the 1st deadly accident in this mine . with another mean said explosion, claiming 13 lives in 2004 i. i knew you could
8:23 pm
a we got reaction from disaster investigator arnold dick's. he explained some of the difficulties facing search. chris. it's not like on hollywood. you can't send emergency services in so day, so far with technology, even today's technology to get in there safely. the area has to be made safe, typically in a mining accident when something like this happens. vit. there is no simple solution. this is the, the worst nightmare of, of anybody who's involved with mining. they usually aren't other options when the ventilation systems being compromised, when you've had the explosions, when the systems are destroyed, was severely damaged at the, the options are very limited. a recovery operation in circumstances like this is
8:24 pm
extremely dangerous. it's extremely dangerous because in the 1st instance, the fact that the disasters occurred at all suggests that there's been a failure in the emergency and in fact normal ventilation systems. and then there having been an explosion, it means that many of the safety systems are likely now to be in operable. and i suspect, certainly it's been, it's my experience that that's the sort of difficulty that these rescue as a now facing on the one hand. and there's the possibility that people may be trapped in areas with air which is still tangible. but on the other hand, the very real risk that rescuers themselves may be injured or worse in their attempts to find them. to protesters have been killed and close to 20, injured by the french army in new jersey. this is, according to local officials, occurred after a military conway, and route to another african nation. molly was stopped by a large gale demonstration. the convoy of the french volcano force,
8:25 pm
escorted by the national gent armory, was blocked by very violent protesters in sarah, in the talbot re region where it had spent the night in its attempt to break free use force. leading to the death of 2 people and 18 wounded love, we have it from official accounts authorities in nyja, which say that after the french convoy had passed from burkina faso into niger about 30 kilometers in a huge crowd about a 1000 demonstrators tried to stop the convoy this, this french convoy fred check presence in the area, has been popular with many people with some ethnicities. they believe all manner of stories about french fruits and their relations with various rebel groups in the area. but they try to stop this convoy and french troops supposedly began firing what they describe as warning. so as well as tier gas,
8:26 pm
it is unclear how wounding shots could have injured 18 people killed 2, but apparently french troops as well as an is jerry and troops began firing a warning shots. again, as they say at these crowds details the still somewhat scarce. we expect to find out more, but the convoy has moved on off to this incident again, a very ill fated convoy because it landed in the ivory coast to support the french operation in the area is, is seen, snaked its way up towards the north, towards molly and on the way, it has been counted all matter of incidents and book and facet level multiple attempts by, by crowds in the thousands to stop these convoy voskus void made up of more than a 1000 vehicles. and then also they had the. busy flood warning shots as well as tier gas in an effort to disperse the crowds. also number of people injured. as
8:27 pm
we've heard. busy but again, this convoy is now on its way through nyja, intimately where friendship bases and french troops are station thousands of them. in the decade long flight that frances waged against terrorists. it cooled them as well as religious extremists in the region. we reached out to the french defense ministry for comment. the reply we received was that new jeron police and french officers had to fire warning shots after being subjected to a violent attack and stone throwing the added that 7 french soldiers and employees were injured. as a result of the assault. all right, that does it for me this hour and the weekly, i will be back in about 32 and a half minutes with another phone. fresh look say with us. this is the weekly art introduction.
8:28 pm
with what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic development only really i'm getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk
8:29 pm
who is your media reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere? direct? what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths already. michelle oon, the postal service delivers a $155000000000.00 pieces of mail every year. approximately 40 percent of the world's mail right now. the us postal service is in the fight of its life history.
8:30 pm
that is really bad financial shape. now facing default, the postal service is a cash cow and there was a way to pull money out of the postal service to put into the federal budget. there was a mandate that you bring a $100000.00, new revenue every month. the nature of privatization in the us postal service is very much hidden from public view. it's privatization from the inside out. that's a big business in money. it's not about the public and given them a service that the design is not about quality train workers. it's about the mime. mm
