12:00 pm
is and i think often people's voice is not heard because it's not part of the mainstream news narrative. obviously we cover the big stories and report on the big events that are going on. but we also tell the stories of people generally don't have a voice. and i'm gonna try my best to never be afraid to put your hand up north question . and i think that's what everybody does. we ask the question for people who should be accountable. and also we get people to give their view of what's going on. ah, australia's prime minister announces borders will begin to unlock the next month, e things. some of the world's top is coven 19 restrictions. ah, hello money i eat. this is al jazeera life from day, also coming up. the u. s. avoids a government shot down, but
12:01 pm
a big fight over federal barring limits remains on result. protest is gather in milan, cooling for more action by well leaders ahead of a climate summit on the day of truth and reconciliation in canada to remember the crimes committed against indigenous people in the residential school system. ah, australia aims to begin reopening its borders in november, 18 months. soft citizens were effectively bound from leaving, and tens of thousands were left stranded overseas. the prime minister scott morrison says fully vaccinated australians will be able to return home and travel abroad as soon as 80 percent vaccination targets on met. this will happen state by state led by new south wales australia impose some of the wealth,
12:02 pm
toughest border restrictions in response to the pandemic. it is will be time very soon that we will be able to open those international borders again. and that will enable australians who a fully vaccinated and australians and residents of australia who are overseas, who are fully vaccinated, to be able to travel again and to be able to lift those caps on area ports. insights with i have moved in defies. see of the progress and that is where australia is now preparing to move. this will happen next month. that's wendell start happening for next month. ikourst on the sarah clark has moved from the gulf coast. it's good is the 10s of thousands of australians have been strata di overseas. the last at least i came months now flights will resume out of city 1st. that's as early as next month. there was some suggestions. it might be a december, but november's, an early a decision,
12:03 pm
but city is the 1st city to resume international travel. the other states will be under pressure to fall as safe that simply because under the the national plan announced by australia climate to scott morrison. the requirements of the states must reach the 80 percent vaccine target under the plan. so that the 2 requirements of a quarantine of those who beta strain citizens and permanent residents, those who been flu vaccination, with a vaccine recognized by the australian government. i can do a 7 day one pointing those who haven't been vaccinated or have been vaccinated with the vaccine that's not recognized by the australian government. they will still have to do a full team day hotel chain. so there's 2 restrictions in place for them. but those unvaccinated strains and permanent residents can still return home and travel now is also looking at quarantine for a travel. so setting up travel bubbles for certain countries. of course, number one on the list at this stage is new zealand. and they, under this national plan and outside of national cabinets today by the prime minister, the government has announced is also looking to offer more repatriated flights for
12:04 pm
those stranded strains in cities where the international airlines are certainly not accessing. but the borders will remain closed for foreigners, the restrictions they've been. ays today, off or studying citizens and permanent residence only. catherine bennett is the chair in epidemiology at deacon university health faculty. she says the announcement was widely anticipated mainly because of australia's progress in vaccinations. it's always being part of the government road met that was agreed at national cabinet by all states and territories. but i think it's this being put aside because we've been so focused on, on the large outbreaks that we have, or just trying to get to achieve those vaccine targets that meet with each stage on that road met. but now we've seen rapid escalate escalation of the vaccination rates in new south wales, the spreading capital territory and victoria with the outbreaks that we have. it's actually put that right on the,
12:05 pm
on the knee map for us as well. i think it might put pressure on those states when people realize they could be opening up to the world. we were seeing a bit of a shift anyway, south australia is already talking about opening up their borders and preparing for letting the virus in knowing that new south wales and victoria are planning to get back to 0. and we can't, we have the virus now embedded in the community transmission that's been running for some months now. so other states queensland and are fighting their own local outbreaks. if that does become embedded in the community, it makes that transition to opening up that bit more, more straightforward. but i think young states are a bit of a mix. western australia has been the most conservative, the most risk averse when it comes to covered that even a i talking a slightly different talk in more recent times. and i think if, if you suffer victoria open up to the wo before they open up to all the other states, that will only incentivize it to the other states to get rid of the domestic borders
12:06 pm
. and actually start to reconnect with the world as they learn to tolerate the virus and know they can still manage it. fi has broken out in a hospital, intensive care unit for coven, 900 patients in the romanian port. city of constantia reports, at least 9 people have died. fighting teams from nearby county were brought in to help put out the fire. yes, politicians have avoided a government shut down at the last minute, but bigger battles are still going on in congress, including over president, jo bought anne's signature legislation with $3.00 trillion dollars, and there's no agreement on increasing america's boring limit. as heidi joe casto reports from capitol hill on this or the year or 250 for the day, or 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
12:07 pm
a midnight deadline. and with this continue 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 threatens 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,
12:08 pm
the debt ceiling has been raised, were suspended $78.00 times since 1960, almost always on a bipartisan basis. my hope is that we can work together to do so. again, republicans raised the debt sailing 3 times under former president trump, but have bowed against doing the same for president biden valleys. 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 cannot 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 dying one new to heaven, or no doubt limit. naturally. another week,
12:09 pm
another display of the partisan acrimony accompanying the u. s. congress from crisis to crisis. heidi joe castro al jazeera washington. it acts of us have gathered in the italian sissy as milan to protest against what they say is inaction by well, leaders on global warming. i had it for climate summit next month. during a conference in milan on thursday, young delegates gave their idea on how some better address the crisis. many express frustration saying organizes aren't really interested in the input check. adam reiney has more from milan. they say more money needs to be directed towards the poor countries from rich countries. that despite the fact that the wealthy nations haven't even delivered on their promise to deliver a $100000000000.00 in annual funds to those countries, they say pre eminently there needs to be a focus on social equality and justice in any climate solutions. cleaning up
12:10 pm
emissions does nothing they say if we don't somehow mitigate. so much of the social equality in the world, that as in many ways lead to climate injustice in poor countries, places in asia and africa and latin america. they also say that although they, they welcome some of the negotiations that they're taking part in that, that this just happens has to take place much faster that they can't just keep hearing all this talk. and we also see this protest is of fridays for future. of course, the movement started in part by graviton berg, and we had lots of students how your thousands of high school and junior high school students, secondary, even elementary students, here in the streets. they had many signs, some of them saying things like, why should i study if i have no future? so they're really putting the focus on the fight for 3rd generation. as many studies showed they're gonna suffer much more affects from climate change than people in older generation. so they're,

12:13 pm
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. so 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 still has on al jazeera cast us 1st legislative elections. we look at what to expect from the sure council learns what's causing a new wave of malnutrition and hunger in nigeria.

12:30 pm
the residential school system, which was to control people on those communities and removed 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 in the packs of those schools are still being sold. a lot of work remains to be done. but you've got to start somewhere. organizers 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. ah, this is al jazeera, these, your top stories. australia will begin lifting at strict border restrictions from
