by the way.
2:01 am
thanks for joining us. has been engulfed in violent protests with. rising prices unemployment. and police used tear gas to disperse protesters who. with at least one reported killed. erupted around the same time as the demonstrations in iran but when. well these protests intern is here started after the new year and they came in reaction to the two new zealand government introducing a new budget plan for two thousand and eight that included amongst other things a rise in fuel prices and tax hikes the response from the tennessean street was one of anger and what we've seen is protests taking place in several dozen cities around the country with us one person has been killed and several people have been
2:02 am
injured now it is familiar to protests happening in another country namely iran what you're saying we have here are two countries with protests taking place on the street by people who are unhappy with the economic situation. the root of it is just a canard it's the problem of youth unemployment i personally haven't been able to find a job for a long time but if people have a job they don't have any problem with the government a lot of the demands of the following suspend the twenty eighteen famine and slow return to the original prices of goods and high of one member from every poor family these are in short see a. rise in picher prices this time is huge we have a lot of privilege and have to pay a lot of fines it's only acceptable that we pay for this government's mistakes. we are protesting here because of high bryce's and employment we were the growth in
2:03 am
these and we have been subjected to violence by security agents now the two mr prime minister has said that there is no place for violence and the sentiments echo the words that were used by iran's leader what happened yesterday is a violation of the law since a state of emergency has been declared in tunisia these protests are the result of operations that aim to review social unrest that we are a free nation and according to the constitution and human rights the people are absolutely free to criticize the government and even protest but the. protests should be in such a way as to aim to improve the situation in the country we the government will definitely not tolerate some protesters who want to destroy public property or disrupt public discipline and create turmoil in society western leaders for example the french president are crying and the e.u. highway present mahoney were quick to condemn the iranian protests even have the american president donald trump calling for regime change iran is failing at every
2:04 am
level despite the terrible deal made with them by the bammer administration the great iranian people have been repressed for many years they are hungry for food and for freedom along with human rights the wealth of iran is being looted time for change but when it comes to the current protests that are taking place in tunisia while here they have kept mum now it might be that two years here was the first country back in two thousand and eleven at the start of the arab spring to oust a dictator in a move that was widely akun by the western world as being one of democratic change but since then there have been no less than my own government in place intern israel all of whom have been unable to get a handle on the economic situation the question of course is whether or not we'll see these course for vision change and condemnation and criticism against tunis here like we've seen for example against him when so it's all agree professor saeed
2:05 am
aside says that the different approaches to the similar protest internews here at the iran could be explained by the fact that one of these countries is viewed as an enemy who is on the move will know about that in american. society. who many in america are. i mean i mean. obstacle for all to be wrong. to look at any more that happened it is more important to include the leader. look as if this is. the. income of tunisia. put this. the german army is recruiting an increasing number of minors according to figures from the country's defense ministry over two thousand teenagers are now volunteering for germany's armed forces that is three times more than six years ago germany is one of the few countries worldwide that allows under eighteen's to
2:06 am
volunteer though only in a non-combat role teenagers can apply if they are seventeen or have parental consent and german military is currently conducting a recruitment drive sending officers to give talks in schools across the country the campaign also features an online reality show. i i. the program follows army recruits for twelve weeks and is one of germany's most popular online projects however its role in making the military more attractive to young people has drawn criticism the united nations is concerned that the recruitment drive is specifically targets children the german army has defended its methods insisting that the training is done under strict supervision earlier we spoke to an m.p.
2:07 am
from germany's left party martin he's against the idea of focusing on the under eighteen's for army recruitment had been a huge come paints in schools even in kindergartens. to. make the army more attractive to young people there have been some schools who have been working together with me to put two young students in some kind of came through we support some initiatives called will miss where for example which. i swear that education should take place without. this where the people who are under age to they shouldn't be to. get into the united nation already in two thousand and fourteen. the german government to stop this and erase the ph of soldiers i think this is a problem. but the main problem is if you do
2:08 am
a foreign coach policy with this just based on dial look you don't need such a strong army all so many soldiers i think that the main problem behind it. pressure is mounting on the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu after a controversial recording involving his sign yet was leaked to the press. probably forgive me if. i'm watching. those i don't know. that about that moment. in that recording you could be chatting to the son of israeli gas tycoon coby mime and outside a strip club the conversation reportedly took place and twenty fifteen back then israel was engulfed in controversy over legislation to drill newly discovered natural gas deposits and the bill was drafted by the israeli finance ministry to
2:09 am
stimulate investment but critics claimed it was corrupt here's how it netanyahu is family reacting to the airing of this controversial video. every parent that watch the report should think how they would react if every full six pression of their kids was turned into a headline and every conversation was turned into a hidden recording prime minister netanyahu is already being investigated in two separate corruption cases the allegations include receiving bribes and negotiating favorable coverage with the media the prime minister strongly denies all accusations but in the meantime though he's actually pushing for a special immunity law which could allow him to avoid prosecution middle east expert a medal but i believe the scandal is not going to die down. this is not the first case that we're speaking about corruption in the family of binyamin netanyahu as the prime minister of israel all these were used as it's mainly to draw will of
2:10 am
confidence and that's the main threat believe anything you know that's why they're trying as a family to play with words showing that it's not. what it was just a matter of a guy who was hanging around with his friends and he was just chatting about different things but this is not the matter of fact. who i think it's going to get worse and worse what's happening that he things that he enjoys a kind of a political immunity but on the other hand this is a real. angry and you could feel the sentiment of anger and fury inside the social media of israel and that could retaliate against it in the hope and i think eventually this may lead to a kind of raising nation or even being prosecuted and even jailed as he is. north korea and south korea have help their first official talks in over two years
2:11 am
ago she took place in the demilitarized zone between the two countries the sides agreed on the participation of north korean athletes and the south korean olympics they also discussed the potential reunification of families separated by the korean war and in a significant breakthrough the two koreas agreed on talks between high level officials in order to avoid dangerous military incidents so that you have two points of view one is there buying time to perfect military capability of the nuclear the other is that they are self-confident enough no they're accepted as a nuclear power they can then become acting as a normal state and start negotiating with other states kim jong il one north. he has won the democratic people's republic of korea as one no i think this is very very welcome news that there is a constructive dialogue going on between the two koreas and i hope something comes of it i mean that when all said and done the political arrangements on the
2:12 am
peninsula between the two countries are paramount here and if they're talking i think that leaves a lot less room for other countries notably the united states to complain about things i think really everyone benefits here it's very hard to say who benefits most i suppose in one sense it is north korea because if there were a new war on the korean peninsula it is true north korea of it would be entirely destroyed i'm not sure south korea would be even though it would suffer great devastation so if you talk about total destruction as opposed to very serious harm in south korea i suppose in that sense the north has gained more but look for south korea north korea china russia japan the united states if we can keep onto this track it would be a big win for everybody the latest told swallow a month sabbatical asian and rhetoric and saber rattling which we know north korea and the united states however donald trump claims his aggressive attitude towards pyongyang is exactly what made the whole diplomatic breakthrough possible.
2:13 am
totally destroying north korea that's called the military option the nuclear and ballistic missile programs of that regime require a determined response. little rocket man is a sick puppy. a lot of people have said a lot of people have written that without my rhetoric and without my tough stance and said just a stance i mean this is this is what has to be done if it has to be done that they wouldn't be talking about olympics that they wouldn't be talking right. plenty more wednesday worldwide headlines coming your way here on the program today including the b.b.c. now being accused of censorship by its own stuff details often. it's.
2:14 am
what politicians do something that. they put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to be honest. that's why the press is what before three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of my call. question.
2:15 am
quarter past the hour here in moscow the b.b.c. is being accused of censorship by its staff they claim they're being prevented from talking about equal pay following the resignation of the b.b.c.'s china editor over alleged salary discrimination carry gracey worked at the b.b.c. for thirty years in an open letter she accused the network of managing a secretive and illegal salary system however the residents over her case met unexpected stumbling blocks as polly boyko explains boston news of this story broke the head of news that the b.b.c. sent a polite reminder to all the staff saying that because of impartiality rules no one
2:16 am
would be able to report on the story if they had expressed a view on it but the problem is that plenty of women at the b.b.c. have to pretend that solidarity with carry gracey over this issue and they are now accusing the b.b.c. of trying to keep them quiet and of trying to censor them the rules of also resulted in a situation whereby effectively because of this you've got the story being reported almost exclusively by men now the b.b.c. was. to comment on the controversy however they have referred us back to their guidelines take a listen to what they have to say when dealing with controversial subjects concerning the b.b.c. or reporting must remain julie impose szell as well as accurate and fair we need to ensure the b.b.c.'s impartiality is not brought into question and presenters all reporters are not exposed to potential conflicts of interest the b.b.c. might have to get used to reporting on itself forty referring us back to those
2:17 am
guidelines because this looks like an issue that isn't going away and there are likely to be more high profile resignations over this issue of gender pay inequality independent journalist martin summers told us the b.b.c. should be clear and honest about how their payment decisions are taken think with b.b.c. in particular because it is a public service broadcaster they've got a to show that they're being fair about pay and be the go to show that being open about how these decisions are taken and i suppose i would argue that frankly they should let people have their opinions and just say the b.b.c. you know except some people have different opinions about this even when the b.b.c. is the center of the controversy it's going to be a tricky one whatever happens i think by her resignation what she she's done is brought all this into the open and no doubt the debate will continue. michelin

stars are considered a whole mark of fine dining with recipients getting prestige in the call an area world in a small mining town in the east of france one share is being forced to turn in a star though through no fault of his own is a story. over the past five years we've seen a steady decline and fall in business with. many people prefer to work and get deliveries and. companies are making less so the budgets are tight and. i've been in this town for eighteen years and we've stuff for thirteen years for
2:19 am
the region it's a shame to lose a star restaurant but it's a good thing for the industry unfortunately we need to focus on employment. but that's the way to. put. a migration initiative aimed at protecting illegal so known as. donald trump says he's ready to approve however only conditions. surely it should be a bill of love and we can do that but it also has to be a bill where we're able to secure our border drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace so in order to secure it we need all deferred action for childhood arrivals also known as dhaka is a program created under the obama administration that gives
2:20 am
a temporary right to live study and work to those illegally brought his children to america but now u.s. lawmakers have two months to tongue daca into law the dhaka initiative has as of late been used by democrats as a tool to accuse trump of violating migrants rights but recent revelations make it look like the debate is not so much about moral principles but rather about votes and support bases the media is now sharing a memo written by the former director of communications for the presidential campaign of hillary clinton the fight to protect treatments is not a really a moral imperative it's also a critical component of the democratic party's future and that tool success if democrats didn't try to do everything in their power to defend dream as that would jeopardize democrats tonight says in two thousand and eighteen and beyond political analyst john howard jobbers unimpressed by the way the dreamers issue is being used to score political points. paul tics become very cynical in the us and you know i
2:21 am
think that. it's somewhat of a dirty game you know it. looks at immigration from a very cynical perspective. the. very wealthy interests that rely on a constant flow cheap labor and legal votes. against any of the reforms that the president and the republicans have been pressing for. america's dreamers debate might have some resonance in scotland where the local parliament is looking into the possibility of granting the right to vote to anyone who granted asylum or a residency permit a green clue to a right to participate in local and scottish parliament elections the scottish minister of a parliamentary business claim that it's only fair that those who have a right to live there also have the right to vote we debate the issue with james dorgan from the scottish national party and david coburn from the u.k.
2:22 am
independence party. the idea that any country allows people who are not their citizens to vote on any election basis on the head of a totally wrong the scottish national party want to gerrymander the elections they want to give the vote to every tom dick and harry this is all anybody but the english i should think i got all that goes died out so somebody might call that racist. rumble and run i just heard from david cole bombing and the only person who sounded racist and it was him the. interested in the race of people. and if they get the rate then i think it's only appropriate to get rate to have a c they must have british citizenship all the scottish national politics well scottish guys lying about it trying to gerrymander it don't have anybody in the country that would give them of would you give us some explanation of the scope shasta darlington is just give us and they actually need to be quiet for a moment i would well you should be quiet let me speak i'd let you speak
2:23 am
a sensually they don't want anybody who's english voting but anybody else can have a vote no matter where they come from this is on how it all countries normally only allow people to vote in the elections who are citizens of that country that ridiculously the coupon continues to see only people we want only to the english the english people who stay here vote consistently or all sorts of issues the whole gist of it so that it that it moves big deal for the i mean look still be it we vote for whoever they want to vote for that's called democracy that is what you want to do as usual when all else are you going to smolder lot of the season scottish scottish soldiers scottish people not given the vote if they were not resident in scotland all the referendum this is not that pathetic if effort by the scottish national party to gerrymander a future independence vote this is not a game this is about trying to meet score on the rate sort of country to the people
2:24 am
who live in school and will get the opportunity to say what it's about this is the international thank you for sharing your wednesday with us so far more of your world headlines very second. a cursory glance at the media environment could easily give you the impression that the vast majority of journalist studied psychology at university so many are convinced donald trump is not mentally fit to be president or the same journalist suffering from trump arrangements and. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turns some countries into pigs these are the countries with weaker economies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline almost

a decade how good are the results she saw all of these with abiding people gathered in greece to watch a lot of good people with your daughter julie. who traded beautiful blue she ate at the calamitous i mean to for legal. challenge must be wasting casey's family and not getting paid while the same mission is still in place to one of the consequences to weaken blue bird flu dispute over a will first. of this is the truth the consumer is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision makers. seemed wrong. all. to me. yet to shape

out this day comes to etiquette and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground. unfortunately it appears that once people learn that you've reported in a sexual assault or may have been involved in an incident that they become scared of you instead of being scared of the perpetrator. greetings and salutation who knocked me over with a chainsaw hock watchers because despite all the ranting raving and twitter tough guy talk that we've had to endure since kim jong un and us president trump first
2:27 am
started their biggest bully on the block routine the olympics of all things may just bring us a first step closer to peace on the korean peninsula since the reopening of a d.m.z. crossing hotline between the governments of north and south korea just after the new year the new york times is now reporting that in talks held at the border bill of negotiators quickly accepted south korea's request to send a large delegation to the winter olympics and that south korea also suggested that the two korean teams marched together during the opening ceremony of the olympics and and with that simplest of geo political maneuvers you know actually talking with their neighbor north and south korea's new diplomacy can only be considered a a blow to the trump a neo liberal foreign policy agenda of fear war profits and empire. and i kid you not as bizarre as this sounds this break in the usual war rhetoric has even brought
2:28 am
whispers that trump could turn this into his very own version of the historic nixon china reapproach myth. so hawk watchers is this indeed a breakthrough per peace on the korean peninsula or just an olympic pause in the beating drums towards another world war let's find out by watching the hawks. you. get the sense. that this would. actually lead to a diplomatic sit. with like you that i got. this . week so. thanks for having tear up the shit so steve what is your take on north korea's talks with south korea over the upcoming winter olympics is this actually
2:29 am
going to cool down tensions in that part of the world. no not in the long run i think this is very calculated by joan that came out of the talks the south korean representative said that denuclearization of the region was discussed when the north korean representative heard that he said he shouldn't have said that and then he made it perfectly clear we have no none of our major weapons nuclear weapons atomic weapons i c b s nothing aimed at japan or south korea only aimed at the united states and i think that's what this is all about that was the message and that's a very telling message and that's was very interesting because it seems to me the you know kim jong room in his government you know kind of making these inroads into south korea you know releasing a spate of saying look we're only really concerned about the united states our weapons are only pointed in that direction does not help him kind of paint the
2:30 am
united states you know as the aggressor which if you follow the twitter wars we we are coming across as an aggressor as as they are well i respectfully disagree i don't think we're coming across as an aggressor we've had test after test after test by this. madman who's done like a fox in violation of every kind of international agreement and he's been sanctioned sanctioned heavily for it and i think that's what's prompting all the things we're seeing now.
