10:03 pm
running battles with the police police coming in he says and with once again another call to to using pepper spray and jake asked every time the police come to the 101520 people to jail new people turning out but just very volatile situation no real clear where this is happening we know they're being taken in something that has been a feature the last few days for the local police in unmarked uniforms they can be just you know your gauges playing for elected office and pass on short doing their best thing to imitate these people and get them back up the street. nic do you get the feeling that the situation it just in the last 24 hours has become worse. it's definitely more volatile one of the most people say that it was we thought into a kind of almost a kind of routine protest session the weekend then during the week look at that other activities but for the people going going about their daily lives because they thought that now it feels like by. violence the base you searching his
10:04 pm
decision to stay in power and refuse to engage in dialogue with this extraordinary . day out of the blue without any guests not even the russian about the president it feels like people about the present it feels like people here is a very angry and feels somehow not a community but it's kind of willing to risk more conflict the police to make the well what recourse does the opposition have right now in this week the european union failed to agree to slap in the same chins on the government of lucas saying go the the opposition really it doesn't look like they have a lot at their disposal is that the case. so i think these protests really all white isn't just average kind of demonstrations we've seen in the last few weeks old weekends as people come out and kind of. here in a relaxed manner we think you. can see i mean now you have people in the neighborhood making nightly. hang out flag flags become upright down and then every day they come back. you know but you know we're going to anything you have done is
10:05 pm
refusing to work and treat the policeman kaka's have now published the personal details but there's a kind of full of retribution given to asymmetric balance between the police and protesters i don't get a sense from the people here that they're willing to go home and they quiet again and i think the country where people yet have to keep out of focus on the quarter century but i think people like having to have back and i don't think it's kind of they're really going to be critically brave old women young young teenagers walking up the fleet dreaming of a good pairing down. to very difficult evening but i don't think that you'll find the. economy but the latest and a volatile situation on the streets of minsk in belarus nick thank you the european commission is trying again to create a coherent and more humane way of dealing with migrants and asylum seekers today
10:06 pm
unveiled a plan by which e.u. member states such as hungary and poland which refused to accept migrants when instead all for money equipment or personnel to help patrol the borders european commission president of underlying appealed to member states today to show solidarity with one another and to rise to the challenge of migration. a camp on the greek island of some most fit for 500 people it houses 5000 it was meant to be a transit point but a backlog migration system has turned it into a home for so many. routes on the 2 years i've been here not good or the conditions are squalid this place and these people are why europe is finally confronting this crisis. presenting her proposal the european commission president called on member states to rise to the challenge. this package reflex
10:07 pm
a fair and reasonable balance between responsibility and solidarity among member states we all share the benefits we all share the burden the migration pact includes compulsory pre entry screening with fingerprinting and a health check a faster 12 week asylum processing target and a sponsored return scheme that would see member states take responsibility for returning migrants on behalf of other member states. the plan abandons previous efforts to relocate new arrivals or rome to 27 member states something opposed to by the likes of hungry i'm paul and n.g.o.s see that could create havoc in the mediterranean. member states front line member states like italy greece and and multi. will be reluctant to cooperate if there isn't any sort of mandatory relocation and then they might not disembark our ships that have been rescued and
10:08 pm
then migrants remain stranded so a lot will depend on the willingness of either member states which in the last 5 years has not been a very high. the commission hopes the scenes of a foreign migrant camp on the greek island of les pauls will be the catalyst for change. morea is a stark reminder we need to find sustainable solutions on migration and we all have to step up. moreas residents know rehung used in another makeshift camp can only hope that action comes sooner rather than later. and for more now we're joined by our correspondent barbara vizio in brussels she is standing in front of the european commission building where a special display is taking place tell us more you know this is a group of political activists they call themselves led by junkies they were quite active during the sit in london and they have come out each night to sort of
10:09 pm
project images of migrants and the police of migrants onto the commission building here in the back office because they want to remind the european union they they say we don't deserve to be treated like this we're human beings we deserve more than just to be managed because that is really at the core of this new proposal that's on the table it's supposed to manage migration better and it's supposed to read people more and faster from the borders off europe so this might be fortress europe $2.00 if you so wish but the people we see here in the front in the back of us they say we need to be considered as human and we need to be treated better and you know we've been hearing from n.g.o.s helping refugees they've criticized these new proposals because they fear that refugees who are already in camps without any mandatory redistribution within the e.u.
10:10 pm
that those refugees are just going to stay put do they have a point. they do have a point because of course camps to still be part of this project and this new program because people who are rife they will again have to be put in camps now the promise is that they will then be proses much quicker that the whole asylum request and the whole legal process that follows it will be done much foster that it has been in the past but we've put these promises for years and nothing has happened so far it is also not easy legally because after which the rule of law are they supposed to be then judged on their asylum request all that is quite unclear and it is quite complicated so no easy solutions and there will be camps and there will of course not the e.u. trying to have a pilot project in. greece unless boss to help greece managed to manage things better but whether that is the solution and whether that is
10:11 pm
a big step forward there is a lot of doubt about it so you know we've talked about this policy migration policy many times before what's your verdict on this plan will be part of it work or do you think of the end of the day that no it's all going to be a big failure. it will parts of it might work because if they really work on repealing more people make the borders even stronger discourage more people have more agreements was the countries of origin is to take their citizen spec that might work to a certain extent but on the other hand they have completely let drop the idea of relocation because it is just voluntary now which are a few of peon member states apart from germany and maybe a few others are willing to take people that everybody is going to try and that backs if it's not mandatory and so there is no real solution and politically this will remain a minefield and things will more or less carry on as they are there is no good
10:12 pm
future for migrants on the border for the border of europe if these plans if we have heard that today are being really put in place. for force in brussels barbara thank you well as we heard poland is one member of the european union that's not likely to support these new migration proposals along with hungary it has been firmly against accepting any more migrants but some arrived there a few years ago and have made new lines for themselves despite. sentiment. a new life in poland mohammed najib is syrian after studying in the united arab emirates he moved to krakow for his master's degree while he has been welcomed by some he has also faced animosity from others. they joked a little bit about so if i'm carrying
10:13 pm
a bomb or not i told them back no i left it at home because you know if i'm coming to study here for example i had the hands go away of my face with an angry i had. nothing replying. mohammed is worried about the anti immigrant rhetoric of poland's conservative government this rhetoric targets one group in particular refugees while the country has welcomed an estimated 2000000 people from the crane since 2015 it has refused to relocate refugees from the count's increase and it's only. now going to receive if you see legal if he's not going to go through the legal process of the status of refugees to be a refugee by international law you have to flee to the 1st safe country anything that serious our neighbor but according to anna wilkins got an expert on muslim migration relocation refugees to poland is legal that's because e.u. countries are obliged to take in
10:14 pm
a share of asylum seekers even if they 1st arrived in greece for example she says politicians are using the migrants as scapegoats. it's very easy to get people cared about the things that they don't know easy to tell a lot of stuff about them to gain votes to gain political power potent is expected to oppose the upcoming migration pact the government says it doesn't want to be forced to take refugees from the camps especially after accepting millions of ukrainians. we believe that every country of the e.u. should be involved and result in the crisis the migration crisis but it's not every country in the same way we are now directing. a little bit different geographical direction but this is a european problem as well the conflicts in crane the conflict the stretch in the east is a problem doubts european union will also face back in krakow mohammed has made
10:15 pm
a home for himself with good friends that is why he'd like poland stillest a more migrants. it's unfair for the for the syrians who would like to have a life like like myself he had you will find common ground on the migration pockets . france has again reported more than 13000 new coded 1000 infections in the last 24 hours it's the 3rd time this threshold has been breached in 6 days the french government is now announcing sweeping new measures to curb the resurgence in the hardest hit areas of the country paris and 10 other cities are on a new high alert level marsay is under maximum alert all bars and restaurants there will close beginning saturday. more parts of france are on a new list of high risk zones declared by germany other regions of europe on the

10:17 pm
hiccups along the way the app is overall considered a success but some issues remain germany's health minister. said only about 5000 users who tested positive for cove in 19 use the app to warn others this if it is only around half of the absolute hers who get a positive result then form their contacts so this means that when there is confirmation that the test result is positive it would be very helpful to just press the button to inform your contacts about it. the app developers say work is underway to create a european gateway so that the german app can communicate with those from 10 other european countries including italy spain and poland. with cases rising across much of europe and the difficult winter months nearing a europe wide approach to contact tracing might prove a useful tool to help contain the spread of the virus. here's
