is there going to be any kind of recourse is there anything palestinians can do to try and correct this and some way i think there's a lot of hopelessness in the palestinian street in israel but many civil society organizations such as myself which i work for and many other organizations as well are trying their best to hold meetings with ambassadors of sarin fine diplomats in tel aviv in order to express their concerns and also to appreciate the statements that sounded the diplomatic missions in a deal of it have expressed particular the european union has expressed its very deep concerns with regards to this bill and its implication for human rights so. hello. so what what can palestinians actually do and what would you say is their reaction now do you think. anything there there will be any kind of uprising or any kind of protest or any any any voice

6:08 am
analysis center for research and policy studies and and he says serious military could soon turn its attention to the north. they want to see that he was the first one is that we're going to see. fighting over it blip in the north part of the country this is the main the main the only remaining opposition held territories in the countries because we have seen over the past few months there is taking control of most of the two or three that was under the control of the opposition in damascus in the south and north of homs south of hama and now the only remaining opposition have territories is it so the first scenario is that we're going to see fighting over that office but that has to. i mean there should be first of all i mean some sort of talks between the russians and the turks because turkey is the main actor in the north or i mean this could actually believe that we for the
6:09 am
political solution to the crisis as you mentioned the russians might now try to put more pressure on the regime in order to start some sort of a political process over the constitution leading up to an election hundreds of iraqis have stormed an employment center in the southern city of basra in an attempt to register for work officials say they've received more than sixty thousand applications for jobs since opening the center three days ago which city has seen more than two weeks of protests over poor basic services and i unemployment here cleric other political bloc won the may elections let's call them politicians to delay forming a new government until the demands of the protesters are met. nicaragua's president's done l.-r. take as holding a rally to celebrate the thirty ninth anniversary of the revolution that puts him in charge of the country for the first time from one nine hundred thirty seven to
6:10 am
one nine hundred seventy nine nicaragua was a dictatorship under the u.s. backed somoza family who was characterized by rising inequality and political corruption in one nine hundred seventy nine the same moses were violently overthrown by take a sandinista national liberation front he was leader for eleven years until one nine hundred ninety when he was voted out and since being elected again in two thousand and seven he's tightened his grip on power and stalling relatives in key posts in april social security cuts were announced then quickly dropped but protests turned into calls for take a to leave office and rights groups say at least two hundred eighty people have been killed since then. go is a senior fellow and program director at the enter american dialogue and he joins me now from washington d.c. so it seems the irony hasn't escaped so many people in the sense that ortega took
6:11 am
over from what was a dictatorship and now people are calling him to step down and what he's just seen as having created its dictatorship for himself do you think it will be effective. it's really a painful situation. and is i think the pressure from the international community from the nation that suv is going to push him to say to the quiz from these how long is this going to go. continue this thing's been sort of position. to take a has been a consolidating power for years now since he was voted in he changed the kong constitution so there are no term limits on the terms he can rule he's brought as wife as fice president among other things he pretty much obliterated the opposition what have people put up with it until now what was the tipping point. the tipping point was basically
6:12 am
a realisation that he practically absolute power he controlled eighty percent of congress eighty percent of the supreme court eighty percent of the election committee had monopoly of the force the army and the police had on his side the head of the police is a relative of his. he had a relationship with the private sector but there were differing abuses that he started to come out one on corruption from the head of the elections committee followed by a mishandling and mismanagement of a national reserve in the country and then the abuses regarding reducing pensions from social security for the elderly all those things came up basically to get what the pinpoint where people just were not prepared to continue accepting the level of police to control is there an opposition possibly strong or forceful i like the sandinistas were when they overthrew the somoza does
6:13 am
something like that exist now. i think there is a very consoling their opposition there are student movements there are civil society organisations from different sectors the left on the right there is also the private sector agglomerated around this coalition called the civic alliance for democracy and the catholic church even they went jellicoe church is supporting change business organizations are also there is basically something of a multiclass coalition quite similar to what exists the did in the overthrow samosa the main difference is that this is a nonviolent movement and so do you see as an amazing a cemetery where the opposition is really putting itself in front of the streets to demonstrate for the resubmission of the president while the president is responding with bullets yes and given that can he really see anything changing are the
6:14 am
protesters being able to convince this government can mr take out to step down or even call elections any time soon. i think the illegitimacy of the government is clear on the side of the military and his wife but the way they see it the interpretation is that they need to find a way out that is relatively. honorable a way out where they don't come out humiliated or are going to prison and they decide they decided to use repression to doubly gate to subordinate people in order for them to propose perhaps elections in two thousand and twenty and this is basically they couldn't balance of power where things stand in chile or take a will have to let go of power the question is where is he prepared to let go of the person who is prepared to die on the decision stances so that's what makes it really difficult to get a sense of whether he will resign in the next six months or negotiate
6:15 am
a transition whereby he comes across as the person who led the transition but not all scott thank you very much. stay with us now for the hour still to come. in security forces an armed separatists are accused of grave abuses against residents of the country's english speaking regions. the e.u. warns member countries and businesses to prepare for the worst in case britain crashes out next year without a deal. and support the basketball fight that's ended up costing both sides more than three hundred thousand dollars. hello and welcome back as we look at weather conditions across europe we've got
6:16 am
pretty unsettled conditions all the way from both warsaw eastward so some severe storms likely some longish periods of rain temperatures are average not much better than not this central area down through much of germany and then through austria towards the balkans is looking good. plenty of sunshine high temperatures further towards the west with the high temperatures also a very severe storm risk for to cross parts of france western areas and then gerry's ahead into the weekend that risk further towards the east and extending across the alpine region to u.k. looking fine twenty six in london should be fine in madrid there temperatures in the low thirty's as you move into north africa we've got fine conditions here for the most part the mediterranean breeze keeping temperatures in cart a very pleasant thirty six degrees so. thirty seven but pick up a wind from the desert so the sort of the chance we could see temperatures get up as high as forty five degrees here during the course of the weekend move towards
6:17 am
central parts of africa is looking pretty lively in west africa north senegal seeing some heavy showers even i think as you move up into mauritania so the chance of say one of two big thunderstorms here. we headed to jerusalem bureau covered israeli palestinian affairs we covered this story with a lot of internet we covered it with that we don't dip in and out of this story we have a presence here all the time apart from being a cameraman it's also very important to be a journalist to know the story very well before going into the fields covering the united nations and global diplomacy for al-jazeera english is pretty incredible this is where talks happen and what happens here matters. the pressure is on for fifteen thousand people posing an imminent threat to israel use live with this they want to hear from the top israeli diplomats hamas people not palestinian people
6:18 am
going to what's known over there same thing that he does on the base are sending them to the it's a cause coalition's area when they come and attack us it's a war zone he was attacking maybe his son goes head to head with daddy and what israel is doing is deliberately choosing to slaughter house and al-jazeera. hello again here's a reminder for top stories and al-jazeera the white house says talks are underway for a meeting between president trump and the russian president vladimir putin in washington later this year the two leaders met in helsinki on monday. arab lawmakers in israel
6:19 am

6:20 am
more than one hundred eighty thousand people have been displaced by the conflict since december twenty sixth. jonathan is an emergency researcher of human rights watch and he joins us now live from new york so how bad is the situation if you had to describe it just give us a picture of what is happening there. i think right now we are at the tipping point when it comes to decide to asian india and the phone regions of cameroon this is a situation that has been brewing for two years now we have groups of armed separatists that are becoming stronger by the day receiving support from the diaspora from abroad who have a very strong sense of what they won't independence for camps for the english speaking regions of cameroon and on the other hand we have
6:21 am
a government that is responding to this security situation in an extremely problematic manner using scorched earth tactics that have been pushing in fact the population towards the armed separatists towards the more extreme factions so this is really a problematic moment in the history of cameroon the elections are coming up in a few months and this is quite honestly a very worrying situation for us it is it's one of these situations that hasn't received much attention why is that why has there been pretty much very little heard about this and how has it managed to escalate to this level with so little international attention that cameroon has never been quite open to international attention or. you know a lot of journalists have tried repeatedly to get access to this country to cover
6:22 am
not only this question but also security operations in the far north against boko haram and the government unfortunately has a history of being rather return to accepting you know government journalists to access these these more troubled areas of the country this is you know also a country that is known for its stability it's one that the u.s. france the u.k. have been relying upon this part of the security architecture for central africa you know this is a region that is you know you know full of countries that face extremely difficult challenges nigeria the central african republic or the republic of congo so i think it's you know it comes as a surprise for a lot of people that you know such kinds of abuses might be committed by what remains a very strong international partner for security in the region now your colleague has described and their report described this as reaching crisis levels yet saying
6:23 am
that that situation could even get far worse with our far more atrocities committed and called on the international community to do something what is it that you're calling on the rest of the world to do. well i think first of all it's important for the government government of cameroon to acknowledge the difficulties it's facing and acknowledge the fact that its security forces have committed abuses if they don't do that what we're going to see is more people joining the armed opposition we're going to see this crisis entering a more protracted phase in which it becomes much more difficult to actually allow for a solution but it's important to remind everyone that you know this is a country that has been ruled by the same man for you know over thirty eight years now is running up for reelection very soon it's a country that receives military assistance from the u.s. as well as from france so you know there is a lot of leverage that the international community can in the use to force the
6:24 am
government of cameroon to do these steps you know the government is able to hold its soldiers accountable they've shown that they had the willingness to do that in the in the handful of cases but in our opinion that's far from enough much more needs to be done that soldiers don't commit the atrocities that we. and the international community plays a key role in in reminding the government of its responsibilities in the face of international law jonathan pad not from human rights watch thank you autumn day slavery in rich countries is far higher than previously thought according to the latest global slavery index the report from the walk free foundation says more than forty million people across the world are living in slavery north korea the worst offender and a gallacher reports from the un headquarters in new york. forced to work against their will on any given day across the world millions of modern day slaves toil in
6:25 am
fields and factories seventy percent of them are estimated to be women and children the problem isn't restricted to developing nations according to the walk free foundation researchers say despite strict laws slavery is a growing problem and the world's wealthiest nations the numbers of modern day slavery a much higher in reached developed countries like the united states like the united kingdom like my home country astray or the numbers of modern day slavery in those wealthy countries is much higher than we previously understood the study also says that north korea is the slave capital of the world and to an estimated two point six million forced laborers for this latest report fifty defectors were interviewed forty nine of them say they suffered some form of slavery either as children or adults and. the thing that sets them apart is that they don't really understand what's being done to them because they're told this is the way to live this is just how things are. on the high street to the impact of modern day slavery is
6:26 am
a growing issue walk free foundation save billions in at risk goods that use forced labor of flooding the market every single thing that we buy has a positive or negative impact on a human being's life when we say the goods we buy we don't want to abuse another person in the process that's a wave that's coming and i think the business is really want to be on the right side of this report paints a shocking picture of slavery across the world its authors are urging businesses and governments to prioritize human rights and do more to address slavery and supply chains but it's ordinary consumers and those that don't live beneath the threat of slavery that could make a difference campaigners say urging those in power to do more could at least reduce the vulnerability to millions and gallacher al-jazeera at the united nations in new york. media reports from eritrea suggest troops are being withdrawn from the heavily militarized border with ethiopia the leaders of both countries signed

6:29 am
a walker has more from me out of. it's important to note that nicole question and also told us that this was a provocation against russia and i mean is relationship and i think the reason he said that is because he acknowledges how important the russians are for armenia they act as a security guarantee hole here against the potential for turkey show as area aggression against all media for that reason i don't think it's the question and wants to point the finger of blame directly at the kremlin nevertheless there are concerns here tensions between the public and the russian military presence here but nevertheless legal pressure is aware of the fact that russia is very much here to stay provides an important economic lifeline to and of course military presence but he's also here recently on winning the revolution where he came to power of the mass street protests calling for big changes you know he wants to push
