that's wendell start happening for next month. or sarah clark is in the city of brisbin and has more and what this means for australians. well, this is a major announcement for all those us trying to been stuck to overseas at various locations for the last year or so simply not being able to return home for a number of reasons, lack of flights that seat caps on those flights or the airlines that are returning, and course the, the quarantine situation here where you got to it's in hotel pointing. government approved hotels. that's a yes. international travel will resume as of next month had been some hint the potential was december. so november is a good step. another, the news has come out of national cabinet. they signed those and had both doses. all the federal government approved vaccine at can leave australia and can return to australia and quarantine at home for 7 days. because of course, the quarantine costs i had been a deterrent for many, a strahan's a trying to return to australia. there were no restrictions on which countries will
be open to travel, but sidney international april will be where this international travel does resume . so gladys project and whose and you supposed premier she's been indicating this week that she wants to see at travelers returned to australia because of the high back night rates. and you said, well, that's where it's been allowed to kick off, but certainly will the other sites around study which some of them have that they board is closed for some time. they will now be under pressure to open their, their up. they have a courts as well and to allow those international flights to return to resume travel internationally. united states has just averted a government shutdown a stop gap spending bill has been signed into law by president biden. it passed congress just hours before government funding was due to run out. how did you cast a report from capitol hill on this earth? the yeas are 250 for the days are 175. the merchant is adopted. the u. s. government will remain open at least until early december, democrats and some republicans came together on thursday hours ahead of
a midnight deadline. and with his continued resolution, we not only keep government open, keep checks flowing to, to our veterans and social security recipients. and the rest, it's just a remarkable thing to think of all the things that we can do working together for the people. but while congress has put out one fire, yet another blaze frightens the country's financial solvency. it's the nations looming debt ceiling. the point at which the us can borrow no more money to pay its bills. that limit will be reached on october 18th, unless congress agrees to raise or suspend it. economists including treasury secretary, janet jaelyn, saying a u. s. government default will likely throw the u. s. economy into recession and destabilize global markets. it's necessary to avert a catastrophic event for our economy. representatives,
the debt ceiling has been raised, were suspended 78 times since 1960, almost always on a bipartisan basis. my hope is that we can work together to do so again. republicans raise the debt ceiling 3 times under former president trump, but have bowed against doing the same for president biden valley's democrats with the task of solving the issue alone, requiring challenging parliamentary maneuvers with no guarantee of succeeding in time. republicans need to get out of the way. so senate democrats can address the issue quickly, and without needlessly endangering the stability of our economy. we can't afford the risk of a drawn out unpredictable process. republicans, though refused to budge. they say it's the democrats problem because they control government were able to find the government today because the majority accepted reality. the same day will need to happen on the deadline. it next week.
another week, another display of the partisan acrimony accompanying the u. s. congress from crisis to crisis. and as well as the debt ceiling issue, there's a major infrastructure bill, which is struggling to find support in within the democratic party. heidi has an update on that. the democrats who control the house are divided on whether or not to support this bill. ironically, they all appear to agree that what it contains is good for the country. they support the bill, but they just don't support what time to vote on it. liberal democrats want another bill to be voted on 1st. the bigger package that really contains, the majority of president biden's domestic agenda, which is an expansion of government that this country hasn't seen in decades, but it would wide in the social safety net by expanding health care, child care. also tackling climate change and progressive. think that now was the
time to use their leverage to get that bill on the floor and approved and past. but some moderate democrats are saying that it's simply too expensive at its current price tag. a 3 and a half trillion dollars, which would require tax raises to cover. and so right now those 2 wings of the democratic party are unable to come together. and if this infrastructure bill, which is caught in the middle, comes up for a vote this evening as scheduled, it is still uncertain whether or not it would have the votes to pass, which again, just shuts more light on this inter party division among democrats, biden's own party, which is embarrassing for the president and embarrassing, and potentially risky for the democratic party when we're thinking about next year's congressional elections. ethiopia is expelling 7th sina united nations officials are for accusing them of meddling. and it's internal affairs that include
senior figures with the un children's fund unicef and the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs. they've been given 72 hours to leave. the country comes a day after the un humanitarian chief, criticized that ethiopian government, accusing it of stopping desperately needed aid from reaching the to dry reach or white house pressik gen saki says washington won't hesitate to use sanctions against those obstructing humanitarian efforts. the u. s. government condemns in the strongest possible terms. the government of ethiopia is unprecedented action to expel the leadership of all of the united nations organizations involved. and i'm going humanitarian operations. we agree with you and leaders. this is a stain on our collective conscience. and in mustang, our diplomatic editor james bay's reports from the un. these are some of the most recent pictures from t gray, but they are weak. so the region is quite deliberately, it seems being cut off from the rest of the world view and believes famine has
already taken hold. that humanitarian access remains severely limited. and now the ethiopian government, in a tweet, as announced its expelling 7 top un officials, they have 72 hours to leave the country in response to a spokesperson for the un secretary general. read out this statement, he's issued. i was shocked by the information that the government of ethiopia has declared 7 you when officials including senior un humanitarian officials. as persona non grata, i have full confidence and a u. n. staff who are in ethiopia doing this work that you went as committed to helping ethiopian people who rely on humanitarian assistance. we are now engaging with the government of ethiopia in the expectation that the concerned un staff will be allowed to continue their important work. of the un security council ambassadors viewed the planned expulsions as a most unwelcome development. do you believe this expulsion of the top you and
staff is part of an attempt by the syrup in government to use starvation as a weapon. look like the sector general. i'm deeply shocked by what we've just heard about the expulsion of senior humanitarian air workers. you've heard me time and again here raise are concerned about t gray. now i would say about northern ethiopia with 400000 people now facing famine. that's more than the rest of people facing fam. in the world to we've got a real humanitarian emergency. we've been working now for almost a year since the conflict started to get humanitarian access in to try and bring the parties to peace. so i think the latest developments will only in intensify determination to try and get a breakthrough. several security council members have told me they'd like to discuss these latest developments as soon as possible. i'm told a meeting could happen as early as friday. james bayes al jazeera of the united nations philippine boxing star money patio has officially registered his candidacy
to run for president in next year's election. the 42 year old was nominated by a faction of the governing pdp lavon party. on wednesday, he announced his retirement from boxing to focus on his political career. he's a $22.00 m congressman and current senator. under the constitution president, rodrigo detective cannot seek a contest the vice presidency racist instead. well, in token us more from monday he's been seen as the biggest absentee at the senate. you know, he spent a lot of his time travelling as he continued his boxing career up until last week, where he officially retired and said that he will focus on his political run for the presidency. now, as you see, money back, you know, stories a story that resonates to millions of filipinos, it's a rags to riches story. a poor boy from the southern philippines, making a young man making his way to the top box, boxing rings all over the world. but over the past few years, it's been quite obvious that filipinos and many filipinos are able to discern the
difference between manufactured, the politician and money puck out the boxer. this is why even those who fully support him actually say that the, that money per cow should admit that he does need more time, more training, more experience in the political arena before running for the presidency. but what is important to note here is that decisiveness of minute backyard. that is because he actually really believes that god anointed him to become president, just as he believes that it was his dex destiny to become a world renowned boxer. and at one point symbolically a president through the good that there to raise the hand of money bucko and said that he was to be the next president of the country. but that has changed very, very quickly over the past few months. the desire of money back out to actually run for the presidency, split, the political part, the of the 2, and, and even money bucket breaking away from the administration and accusing president,
rodrigo the 3rd is government of, you know, being involved in corruption more than 22000 refugees and migrants are stuck in the colombian town, waiting for smugglers to help them cross into panama. the migrants were mostly from haiti attempting to travel through one of the most dangerous and impossible regions in the world. sandra petty's there in the khaki in northern columbus. this is possibly the worst moment to end this crisis that started back in august. at this moment, possibly more than 20000 migrants are formed up in this beach down close to the border where the panama, most of them are haitian migrants that i had already resettled in other countries. and south american are now trying to reach the united states. but besides them, there are also migrants from african countries from venezuela, cuba, even from afghanistan, those who can are staying in hotels or apartments in town. those who don't have any
money left in their journey have pitch stance on the beach. that is the case throughout much of the beach here and nick oakley, they've been here for a weeks at times even up to a month. and that's because panama is allowing just $500.00 people to enter the panama each day. and people are here waiting to be able to get a boat ticket to cross the gulf of laura and from their start a very dangerous journey through. did they re n jungle? many of the ations migrants are also now concerned by the fact that the united states has been deporting asians that make it there. that is the case, for example, with francois ations that we met here with his wife and daughter, but he says he's run out of money. he doesn't have any other option, but to continue his journey with even if we wanted,
we can go back because we ran out on monday to. that's why we're still waiting to leave on thursday, a number of un agency of called for protective measures for haitian migrants and a more comprehensive regional approach to a crisis that at least for now seems to have knowing the inside look more. so let's come here now. just include in canada marks it's 1st national holidays are indigenous survivors in children who disappeared from residential schools. have you quantified how many children have taken their own lives because of your products. and facebook gets a grinning from senators about its impact on children more on that to stay with us . ah. it's another beautiful sunny day of 35000 feet. the weather sponsored by cutaways, voted world's best, a line of 2021. hello there. let's have

systematically erasing their culture and identity through a church run residential school system a national day of truth. and reconciliation has been observed for the 1st time to reflect on the mistakes of the past and the hard work left to be done under chappelle reports. ah, dionte cook says she is alive to day because her grandparents survived an attempt many years ago to destroy her people. she and other indigenous canadians shared their experiences on wednesday to the national day for truth and reconciliation. i constantly think about my loss of culture and my loss of language and my last a connection similar to that. and every single day, all of us are dis meetings. we got our whole day back and it was unfair to lose in the federal holiday was created to have difficult conversations about the past and to honor so many last children. it's the 1st since more than a 1000 unmarked graves were found at 2 former residential schools. earlier in this
year, i no longer call them schools because schools don't have graveyards. to day is a day to reflect on the atrocities that canada has committed against. first nations peoples. truth must come before reconciliation and true reconciliation is about learning, sharing and growing together. more than 3200 indigenous children died at the hands of church and state in the residential schools which were operated from 1831 right up to the 1990 s. last week, canada's catholic bishops apologized for their role in the system for the physical and sexual abuse. a 150000 indigenous children were taken from their families and forcibly assimilated during this time. and what's now recognized as a cultural genocide. prime minister justin trudeau urge all canadians to reflect on the evil done in the past. do not tell me or try to explain that the
national day of truth and reconciliation is a day for indigenous canadians. it is a day for all canadians. it is all of us, it is all of our story. but where the story goes next is up to the people. indigenous women and girls face a higher risk of being murdered or going missing. many communities, lack clean drinking water or adequate funding for social services. but the largest issue remains, the land that was stolen and treaties ignored in ottawa and london. the british crown upon taking control of canada way back in the 19th century, refused to acknowledge that there are indigenous land claims. and then what's led to the residential school system, which was to control people on those communities and remove their children, forced those children into a christian education quite violently. so by refusing to allow them to have
relationship with their parents, set forth a cycles of self abuse, shame, suicide, addictions throughout the country. it all, virtually every single indigenous community. so here we are, 1096 was the last time the residential schools closed. and here we are in 2021. and the impacts of those schools are still being felt. a lot of work remains to be done . but you got to start somewhere organizer say reconciliation is a healing journey. a process that must be kept alive along with the memories of those who were last. inter chappelle al jazeera facebook as insisted its products do help young people, even though the company's own research found it could harm them. the tech giant global safety chief told a u. s. senate hearing it monitors how children use its acts to minimize the bad and maximize the good article here as well. from washington d. c. c, a teen. you'll probably see them on a social media screen. now, the u. s. senate is asking, is that harming them to suicide grade for 10 to 14 year old as double for young
girls? it has quadrupled instagram didn't create this crisis. but from the documents provided by the whistleblower, clearly face books own researchers describe instagram itself as a whoa. perfect storm. the whistleblower given instagram's own research to the wall street journal showing slides with the headlines one and 5 teen say that instagram makes them feel worse about themselves. teen to struggle with mental health, se instagram makes it worse. we make body image issues worse for one in 3 teen girls. that's their own descriptions. and the reason antigone davis, the head of mobile security for facebook, which owns instagram, was called to testify. i want to be clear that this research is not a bomb shell. it's not causal research, it's in fact, yeah, i read to differ with neighborhoods. this, this research is
a bomb fail. it is powerful gripping riveting evidence. i disdain for the company was clear across the board. have you quantified how many children have taken their own lives? because of your products at number 2, as the global head of safety for facebook, what would you say to a mother? what would you say to a father who lost a child because of facebook's products? first of all, senator cruz, the research that that you are referring to is in fact not causal research. critics say, congress can dramatically change how the company operates, cracking open the algorithms and saying you can no longer optimize your algorithm for things that hurt people and society. and if they can't make money and they can't survive in the market place with that type of agenda, math focused may shouldn't be playing in the marketplace. and it's going to get
more chance for facebook here on capitol hill next week. a whistleblower is scheduled to testify, likely fueling a growing desire to regulate social media. that seems to be coming from both political parties. paddling al jazeera washington. i for my purchase police officer, has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for murdering a woman. after falsely arresting her, wayne cousin's abducted 33 year old sarah everett as she walked home in south london earlier this year. he then raped and murdered her and disposed of her remains. in a forest. the case prompted widespread protests about woman's safety. hundreds of young activists have presented their proposals to address climate change to global leaders at a conference in milan. the youth for climate event was marked by protest and scuffles with police. adam rainy reports from bella, i mean swedish act of his credit thunderbird and other young environmentalists attending a climate conference in milan. have one a seat at the table,
meeting with italy's prime minister mattie draggy. there is no planet b. there is no there audience with a g 7 liter comes 2 days after sun bergs skating criticism that politicians weren't acting with urgency to solve the climate crisis. your pressure is very welcome. we need to be wheat into action. your mobilization has been powerful and rest assured, we are listening. east is one day, hundreds of young environmentalists from around the world gathered here to propose climate solutions directly to global leaders. ahead of the cop 26 summit taking place in scotland and november. oh, world leaders beamed in as did the pope to give their backing project. the delegates are calling for the elimination of all fossil fuels by 2030, a more transparent and equal climate finance system and climate education for global youth. their proposals will be considered in the next few days at
a pre cop meeting here in milan ahead of the scotland summit. this is only going to be meaningful if the things are changing in governance right now, reflect would be a thing, because that never happen. the brought that should be read as and far as not just fly as big as the ross, as i did just boy. eyes does not include as that does dozens of protesters outside the perimeter, briefly blocked traffic before police dispersed. in that the delegates found an ally in italy's 1st minister for ecological transition, who shares a key vision of theirs? this is exactly what the good of and less of together said. even put together the session and the quality global level and the climate change emergency. we have to treat those together. otherwise we simply 6 the client that the climate problem. but then we have millions of people losing the job. the name youth for climate can be seen as just a branding mechanism, but veteran attendees, of global environmental summits tell us by focusing on young people's ideas. this
conference is actually injecting a sense of optimism and urgency. sometimes lacking such meetings, they don't pay the baggage that a lot of other people have. right. so they have dantas. yeah. of maybe the in the name, the of the one to to change the war. i think that's an essential ingredient as an active if the activists aren't so naive, though to believe every things are told and will turn up the pressure. if leaders don't deliver on promises made here. adarine al jazeera milan. well, assa raymond is a spokesman for the cop $26.00 coalition. he says despite the talks, those been part will likely ignore the colds of young people. so, so the traces ministers will happily pulls the pictures with your crime activists. they'll be politely listen to that proposal. but when they actually sit down for that mean, there's been those demand go back to business as usual, ignoring just not just them,
but the millions of people around the world to account for climate justice. and it's not been like a proposal. in fact, we could fill that conference all 3 times over with the countless policy papers to demands for action. the civil side table, the decades of fortune. what we see at this moment is tough talk, but empty promises to act by governments. and none of that is stopping us from spiraling towards a catastrophic woman that science. it's a warning is like the global scientists we should have called read for humanity is said that the window to act is rapidly closing. the un itself is said, the current proposals on the table to cut to missions a simply to week. i don't, for the richest countries need to cut their emissions by 2030 to prevent a breach of the critical 1.5 degree. god rel, yet the kicking action down the road to 2050, leaving us on the course of 3 degrees warming, the u. n said we look at least one and a half trillion dollars a year for a global green new deal. so you can tackle climate and inequality and that the poor us are left behind. yet rich countries haven't even met the promise of 100000000000
that they made a decade ago. frankly, it's not that they don't know what action it's that they're still acting to protect profits. a big clue in companies, rather than listening to their citizens. and it's not naive from your medical. they are actually speaking truth to power. ah, type of picture of a top story on al jazeera, australia's prime minister, has announced the country will open up its international borders, starting from november. got morrison says fully vaccinated australians have been stuck overseas. the pandemic again will finally be able to return home. it is, will be on very soon that will be able to open those international borders again. and that will enable australians who are fully vaccinated and astride ins and residents of australia who are either sees who are fully vaccinated to be i will try.
