not the dictatorship don't is clearly a lot of discontent, but these are the largest protests and decades. i know cube has been dealing with challenges though, that a lot of other countries have also had to deal with during the pandemic. can you give us a sense of what it's actually taken to have this level of frustration spillover like this? i think it's the cuban government made a decision back in january to shut down travel from the dominican republic, panama, the united states for cuban nationals, and prioritized russian tourist. many of them with coded 19 and that's blaming the cuban government for the outbreaks have been taking place. and at the same time, there's a lack of assistance that normally would be provided by mules people. cubans are able to travel to central america, the u. s. the dominican republic and bring back food and medicine which they're no longer able to do. so that's creating a hostile environment for the cubans. and that's why they're so outraged and why

writes gloves in the street. how worried are you about a crack down? i'm very worried. i want to go reports of catholic priests being badly bidding up and disappeared by the name of that it got stored. so repression is what this regime understands. but i think the problem is that they've created conditions on the ground that are so horrible that people, despite the the credible fears, they have the regime. i've overcome those serious because of the dire situation. they find themselves in johns far as their the executive director of a center for a free cuba speaking to us from outside the cuban embassy in washington, d. c. thank you so much for joining us, john. the who's now moving on and italy has biesen england to win football's european championships for the 1st time since 1968th. the final in london finished in

3:12 am
studies from the university of cambridge showed her the best conditions for creating variance that escaped vaccines is essentially to allow transmission among young people in a partially vaccinated population where only now she was rebel, an older group that vaccinated. and that create the perfect conditions for escape. and if we were going to spawn radiance, that escapes vaccines even more than the current one. do that could undo all the games we've made in the last 6 to 7 months, not just in the u. k. but in many other parts of the globe, and it's completely rec, has to be taking that gamble at this point in time. still ahead here on algebra, i found out of us 3 involves. nan has got another 19 victims of the separate needs and massacre varies as the country 26 years agenda and warning for the world's largest tropical rain forests. in brazil is shrinking. ah,

3:17 am
needs during the bosnian war. hard to me, savage has more from that memorial in 7026 years later, 19 victims of the 7th genocide have found there it is. the youngest, among them, was just 16 years old when he was killed and the oldest had 63 years. after the memorial, there is still a community that lives in evidence and some of the challenges they face. one of the challenges they face and they emphasize on is the genocide denial. and that was the theme of the collaboration. the genocide, denial has the stab. the genocide, denial is the lay of the latest or the last stage of genocide. and it can indicate on other future suffering. that is why this issue is really important for the victims. bosnia and herzegovina doesn't have a law that forbids genocide denial. because the bosnian serbs have the power of you
3:18 am
know, in the parliament and they are using that power to block block, bringing that law into power. on the other hand, the international community has tools in the office of the high representative to bring that law into power regardless of the parliament and veto in the parliament. there are some indications that the current high representative, valentin in school who is leaving office at the end of this month might in the next days or weeks bring that flow into power. and in a way to bring a legacy to his tenure as the as the high representative of international community in bosnia. now moving on and wildfires are raging in the west of the united states . with record breaking temperatures, forecasts for california and nevada. this all comes just weeks after another dangerous heat wave hit north america, and which hundreds of sudden death recorded. many of them suspected of being heat related and next year brian, for me this is the largest wild fire of the year in california,
3:19 am
burning along the border with nevada. a combination of 2 fires, sparked by lightning, doubled in size between friday and saturday, fires rolling down here. it's one of several fires, straightening homes across the wasted united states, blamed on so called heat dome, pockets of high pressure which push warm air down, forcing temperatures up this job. those are the effects of climate change. here it's real human induced impacts. acute impacts are happening decades before even the scientists are predicted with scorching temperatures across 10 states. 30000000 americans are facing extreme heat. this wildfire and oregon doubled in size on saturday, pushed by strong winds. officials with cold, ablaze, unpredictable and erratic. some areas have been evacuated or others have been told to pack up and be ready to leave at any moment. the heat and the fires,
3:20 am
putting pressure on the power grid, people are being urged to conserve water and electricity, old system. then they just tend to break on hot day. they can take the heat, they over heat, they're wanting so dangerous conditions could cause heat related illnesses. this latest surge follows the hottest june on record for the us and historic heat wave estimated to have killed nearly 200 people. the searing temperatures baking visitors at california, joshua tree, national park, thought as vice hires like this is a hot, it's never been hotter. it feels like we're in and out in the nearby death valley. also in the mojave desert reached 53 degrees celsius on saturday. 54 on friday. if confirmed it would be the highest recorded and more than a century and close to the highest ever measured on earth. the conditions of so extreme and the air so dry that some of the water dropped by aircraft to fight the
3:21 am
fires, evaporates before it reaches the ground. forecast say even if temperature is don't continue to break records. the widespread oppressive and long lasting heat remains a threat elixir brian al jazeera while. meanwhile, canada has imposed restrictions on rail transports in areas that are at high risk of wildfires. there have also been days of record breaking here. bear with temperatures just under 50 degrees celsius. wildfires have been threatening towns in the west of the country and investigate is now looking into where the freight trains partly to blame. well, that's now bringing simon donna. he is a professor of criminology at the university of british columbia. he joins us now from vancouver. professor, the climate change conversation has become so politicized in north america. i want to stop by trying to put some speculation to rest. how connected is the heat that we're seeing here to climate change and how much more of this should we expect? well this, this event,
3:22 am
these he waves are clearly due to climate change. we've already had kind of forensic analysis, sort of like the csr team coming in after the crime scene looking for fingerprints . and then, and that analysis shows that the heat waves that we experienced in canada last week, we're more than 99 percent attributable to climate change. or another way to think about that, is there a $150.00 times or more, more likely to happen because of the human impact on the climate system. these are rare events that are becoming and incredibly more common because of climate change . and so there's really, there's really no doubt in the scientific community about that professor, you say these are going to become more common. we've seen existing infrastructure collapse when it comes to unpredicted, extreme weather events, for instance in texas during those winter storms back in february, enough roads, i believe roles are melting and canada do do think governments and everyday people have the resources they need to adapt and, and keep themselves safe. you know, we're really getting to the key question. i mean we,
3:23 am
what we're learning is that we cannot live with easily with climate change. the core of the problem is that the climate is changing faster than we can adapt right in the climate is changing because of human activity. so means we need to reduce emissions to start to reduce the warming and reduce the suffering. but it also means because we've delayed action for so long that we need to take measures to adapt to the changes that have happened already. professor there are also wildfires right now in siberia and you mentioned that the urgency needed for action. i mean, yesterday i was talking to one of the experts who writes the i p c. c reports about how we're heading towards triggering some feedback loops and tipping points. it feels like before this pandemic, people were feeling the urgency, now much lesser do you think people actually understand what's potentially on the horizon? i think, i think they do. i think one of the things that really changed over the years, particularly here in north america, people in north america used to imagine it to see climate change into experience
3:24 am
that you had to go somewhere else. there was this assumption that because we're relatively wealthy in north america that were somewhat insulated. but i think the events of the past years have really changed that and shown people that if you want to see climate change, you just have to look outside. it's right here at home is right outside our doors. professor simon donna, professor climate ology at the university of british columbia. thanks so much for sharing your thoughts here on out there. thanks everyone in the program. meanwhile, the race of deforestation and brazil's amazon rain forest rose the 4th consecutive month in june. and they're off as it will only get west with more droughts and forest fires expected higher. it has this report new, dangerous, showing the world's largest tropical rain forest is shrinking fast scientists for years been warning that the amazon is disappearing. it's an alarming rates, especially in brazil. its last refuge for many endangered wildlife and home to millions of species. some of them still on identified and now that shows that the
3:25 am
deforestation of the brazilian amazon rose for the 4th consecutive month in june, hitting a record high. in the 1st 6 months of this year alone. it went up by 17 percent. more than 3500 square kilometers of amazon have been cleared already. that's almost 3 times the size of the city of rio de janeiro. many blame the government. phil is committed to smiling. this continues to happen because of the government's environmental policy. encouraged by the national congress, i think for climate change summit hosted by us president joe biden, brazil's present able scenario pledged to eliminate the illegal logging of the amazon in the next few years that they make. you know, i'm determined that we will achieve our climate neutrality by 205010 years ahead of our previous target. but satellite imagery suggests otherwise, an environmental is say, simple scenario took office in 2019. the destruction has been happening at
3:26 am
a rapid rate as institutions and legislations to protect the rain forest and its indigenous people are increasingly marginalized. earlier this month and after weeks of protest, brazil supreme court sustained a ruling bikes by the farming sector. the would limit recognition of indigenous land. he didn't approve our lease is an attempt to pass laws in the national congress with both for 19 that takes away the territorial rights of indigenous people. it's a signal to log of an illegal farmers on the rain forest grounds that are willing to commit crimes from the invasion of indigenous territories. deforestation, and setting fires. scientists say the protection of the amazon is vital to curbing climate change because of the vast amounts of greenhouse gas is that the forest absorbs june. however, had the biggest number of forest fires since 2007, and that's only a fraction of those seen annually during the peak of drought season in august and
3:27 am
september. and now there are phase, the worst is yet to come. so the height of al jazeera, now, civilians appears have overwhelmingly rejected changes to the countries water laws in sundays referendum. the government says the amendments would secure more funds to protect bodies of water while improving flood defenses and construction regulations. but environmentally say the legal changes threaten the country's famous lakes and rivers, making it easier to build in coastal and lakeside areas. civil society groups collect more than $50000.00 signatures to take the law to a referendum. now billionaire richard branson has flown to the edge of space fulfilling a lifelong dream and making space tourism reality. the flight reached 80 kilometers above the surface of the air where they then experienced a few minutes of weightlessness for benefit is at the spaceport in new mexico with millionaire richard branson has earned his astronaut wing lifetime.
