12:30 am
you check the one the cut, cut to gateway to whoa trade. ah ah, welcome back is a reminder now of the top stories on al jazeera, germany's center left social democrats have claimed victory and sundays federal election. the parties leader says he's ready for coalition talks with the greens and freed democratic party. in a week or 2, g council is warning. thousands of afghans will urgently need housing, food, and closing. to survive the winter, i have a tendency in foreign minister osman gerard. the has told the
12:31 am
united nations general assembly, the president, case, said's, and new decrees are necessary for the country security. his address coincides with mass demonstrations of the streets of the capital tunis, the protest against the president's seizure of power in july. equal, do not assume that you've been indonesia. we started building our capacities based on hope, hope for a genuine and peaceful democracy, one that lives up to the will of the division, people alone and their legitimate aspirations to assist them that protect their sovereignty, ride without freedoms and dignity, the dangerous situation threatening our country and community is attributed to a deeply rooted political polarization and socio economic and health crisis. this is why his excellency, the president of the republic, mister sy, it had to interfere and take a few years of exceptional resolutions and measures based on the constitution to
12:32 am
put the country back on the right path towards democracy. which is the, one of the tradition people, medicine or diplomatic as her james base has more now from the united nations. a very important, i think, moment for this speech and the backdrop. a very troubling speech for the government in tennessee, or at least for the president with those large protests. as you're aware in july, the president said, the prime minister suspended the parliament. and since then, he's also in recent days, said he's going to rule by decree. well, that was explained for us by mist, often the follow up miss. often generally the foreign minister. he said it was a dangerous situation that tunisia was facing. he said that was the polarization of it. he cannot crisis. he said that the actions by the president once he was forced to take, he says they were exceptional and he said they would put the country back on the
12:33 am
right track. and then i think the important bit, he said that democracy still was the reversible option. although the reality is it has been reversed, at least for now, causing real anger in to these here on the ground. as you say, barbara, that been protests in the last 24 hours. also on the streets of tunis. we reckon somewhere between 2000 and the $3500.00 protest is that on the street. that's the biggest protest. since denali the former dictator was out sit back in 2011. and it was reminding viewers that when he 1st suspended parts of the constitution back in july, there was quite a lot of people who were supportive of this plan to root out corruption. but it's clear sentiment, public sentiment on the street so choose, have changed in the intervening to mountains and people now finding the situation intolerable. i think that democracy is being subverted in this way. the
12:34 am
constitution big subverted in this way. because remember off to the overthrow of finale 2011, that was a long period long drawn out painstaking negotiations, trying to evolve every part of the 20s in society to build this new constitution. a constitution that is now effectively not in force or diplomatic editor, james bay's, there will now we can speak to you on this. that will be, mary, i'm a lecturer in international relations at george mason university. sir, thank you for joining us here on al jazeera, you were watching that speech as well of the united nations by the news in foreign minister speech that came about 24 hours after we saw protest, thousands of people out on the streets of students to protest against what they call a power grab in light of all of that, what did you make of the speech? what struck me was it was much less about 2 and a lot more about other places in the road for the international. and right
12:35 am
now, the focus of, if you need your people is denisia. and there was very little about that except to apologize for the president. i suppose by way of an apology or an explanation that i was the foreign minister said that the president had been forced to take the decisions he took because of exceptional circumstances. and because of course, it comes on the back of a social economic health crisis. uneasy, a deeply hit by a coven. i do think that that was a sort of explanation to the international community because the and the needs the international community on side one mind taking over and especially on it because the president is a professor of constitutional law. and says,
12:36 am
sending the constitution and saying that he's going to do things by committee is very suspicious for me because i've seen this over and over again in many places. for example, 3 years ago the prime minister abbey said that he was going to be the transition of aging. and we know where we got in here. and i feel the same thing for the fact that the difference is needed in general when you are very politically active. be right now putting the president action and in the game. so there is hope so divided and they're not effective. but the people have to be as society rather than the stronger internet. and then it was interesting listening to the foreign minister as
12:37 am
we're listening to emphasize the role that he has in the region. the sort of emphasize the palestinian question, these really palestinian questions. so do you think the international community does seem to need his role as that critical in the region and that, that may affect the reaction that they will have to the events that we're seeing there. now i think the international community is very concerned by what was going on in the i think that was the last book from the out of spring countries for the on the mccarthy and the dating. see. and now we have seen her degeneration, all sort of candidates, and that's not the kind of pictures. and
12:38 am
you know, even though it's hard and even though the times are that you mentioned because of it. and finally, all kinds of issues into the consultation inclusive and the president, the president has been a part of the president had been, you know, that we sort of got to do that and has shown, you know, these are things that all, this will de, mary, i'm lecturing international relations and george mason university speaking to us from new york. sir, thank you. thank you. now it's a critical week at the u. s. congress for president biden's agenda at stake is government funding that will affect millions of american lives. a one trillion dollar infrastructure bill, a $3.00 trillion dollar spending bill, and
12:39 am
a potential government shut down at the weeks and well have congress fails to meet the deadline? it will be the 3rd shut down in 3 years. bit of a habit there for more on this we can cost live to correspond with hydrogen castro who joins us from capitol hill. heidi, this all adds up to a very busy week in congress. what can we predict of anything? well, barbara, the clock is ticking and the senate is about to take a preliminary vote on a piece of legislation that is intended to avert disaster on 2 front. first, it would prevent government funding from running out on friday, which could lead to a shut down that means federal workers immediately losing their paychecks and some government programs suspended. secondly, this bill would prevent the us from going over the fiscal cliff in mid october. some economic have said that would be disastrous,
12:40 am
it could throw the u. s. economy into recession, and it would have echoes across the global markets. now, both parties here in capitol hill say they want to avoid all of those scenarios. but the problem is they cannot agree on how to do so. democrats want to tackle both of those problems together. and that is a bill facing senators now. but republicans say, while they agree that they wants to keep the government open past this thursday, they want no part in raising the debt ceiling. that is why in a few moments time when the senate takes this preliminary vote, we do expect this bill to fail. a default means quite simply, the government cannot pay its bills. it means that suddenly the government is presented with unimaginable options. to they tell seniors they won't get their social security checks or veterans that they won't see their benefits or tell our
12:41 am
military they won't be getting paid. we will not provide republican vote for raising the deadline. as we speak, democrats are behind closed doors, assembling and multi trillion dollar, reckless taxing and spending spree. there is no chat. republicans will help left democrats credit limit. so they can immediately steamrolled through a socialist burge that will hurt families and help john and republicans are called this bill dead on arrival before the senate. so where will that leave us after tonight vote will democrats will still have a short and rapidly narrowing window to come up with an alternate solution to keep the government funded, passed this week. but democrats are divided on it problems of their own, namely, funding for an infrastructure and social programs. bill that total more than 4
12:42 am
trillion dollars together. they are president biden's domestic agenda, delivering on his campaign, promises of expanded health care, education and tackling climate change. those bills can pass without republican support, however, it's the democrats themselves who are divided on the price tag, namely moderate democrats who are opposing the tax increases that this extra government spending would require. meanwhile, president biden has projected optimism. he says, all of this can be resolved and that the us will not shut down its federal government and will not go over the fiscal cliff. all of these barbara, obviously very consequential items that just happened to be all pending at the same time here on capitol hill. yeah, very busy week ahead. heidi's jocasta with the latest thing. capitol hill? heidi, thank you saying in the us the country has experienced the biggest annual increase
12:43 am
in murders, new figure is released by the f. b. i show a sharp increase in homicides during 2020, and some us cities reporting their highest murder numbers since records began. john henderson has worn out for chicago, murders in the us increased by 30 percent last year. that is the largest year over year increase since the f b. i begin compiling an annual report in 1960 law enforcement official say. there are many reasons for it is partly the economic and social stress of the pandemic. an increase in purchases of firearms and possibly a pullback by police after massive protests against them in 2020. those numbers remain well below the highs of the mid 1990. but the trend continues for 2021, and it is a national trend, not a regional one. it occurred in all regions of the us. there have been record high numbers of murders in major cities, including albuquerque, new mexico, memphis,
12:44 am
tennessee, de moines, iowa, and milwaukee, wisconsin. and in pennsylvania, where we've seen 400 murders so far this year. the city is on pace to set a new record for 2021. here in chicago, a 104 people were shot and 19 were killed over the long independence day, weekend in july. so when these numbers are reported for 2021 here and across the country, it is likely that the total murder numbers will be higher. apologies for that slight glitch there now said the children is warning the babies born in the past year will face almost 7 times the number of scorching heat waves in their lifetimes. as their grandparents, the charity conducted the research with climate scientists and found that newborns will live through more than 2 times the number of droughts. and almost 3 times the
12:45 am
number of river floods and crop failures. especially if they're born in low and middle income countries. they'll also experience it twice the number of wildfires as people born 60 years ago. but there was some hope if emissions are curved to 1.5 degrees above pre industrial levels, save the children says that some of the figures can be cut by almost half in your ashing is the ceo of saved the children international. she's urging governments around the world to act in the best interests of future generations. we clearly see coming out of this report is that the climate crisis is indeed a child, right? it's crisis with children. when with no responsibility for getting us to where we are taking the biggest hatch in the coming years due to the topic crisis that we see it. so urgency to start to talk about this crisis, not just now, but also for future generations. and think about what the impact would be for,
12:46 am
for the children of today and the children up tomorrow. i don't think we have talked before how critical it will be from for the future generations on how big of a chunk challenge is. and what we want to say with this is that it is not too late, but it is urgent that we collect could be now about governments around the world in the countries around the world, as well as the actors stand firm. and that commitment to, to, to the parents agree mental other climate relation related agreement that we have signed out to. because this is the time to act. and if we don't, the future will be on bearable for children in many places of the world. it's famous night life is part of the reason that bank coke has been a top tourist destination in asia for years. but it's thailand's government work from bringing international tourists back after the pandemic. curfews are still in place, and bars are closed. scott handler has more now from bangkok,

this network of alleys in pack pounds. usually the vibrant center of bank are unique style of night life. now it's idle and dark. the shutters were pulled down on bars and entertainment venues in the week after the 1st cases of covered 19 in thailand and have stayed down for most of the 18 months that follow. thanks to shut down and curfews. this part of china town is home to a community of trendy small specialty bars. not only do bar owners view the government handling of their industry during the pandemic as a near death blow, but alcohol control loss, pre dating the shut down, have also been working against them. i am at this house, i'm tired. i am embarrassed about the situation. i thailand did renown for a great night life. many bars have received a war. why does, in the government support the strong laws are big business to maintain the monopoly? our voice is not allowed. like bar owners call the laws draconian in which alcohol
12:48 am
sales are limited to set hours during the day. heavy taxes on imports and unequal laws only allowing large companies to brew beer distill alcohol. a ban on alcohol, advertising and internet sales are so strictly enforced. bars were fined for posting videos of cocktail making and menus for drinks delivery. yet large, bruce avoid the band by advertising, mineral water and soda, that they're the same logos as their alcohol products. here's an example of thailand's alcohol control laws. if i were to take a selfie here in this bar and share it on social media, i could be fined up to $1500.00 for indirectly advertising the brands of alcohol behind me. if i own the bar, i can be fined up to $15000.00 and possibly face a year in jail. alcohol control laws have been a contentious subject in thailand, historically, politically connected, conservative and religious groups have worked to keep them strict. an opposition
