8:03 am
vaccines at the cuddly. california public health department already requires for school attendance such as measles, polio, mumps. these vaccines are already mandated cobit 19 is simply going to added at to this particular list. there are some 13000 school boards across the state, and they've actually written letters to the governor saying how much they are facing in terms of local school board meetings. some are described as utterly chaotic with some parents are refusing to allow the wearing of mass, certainly refusing any form of force vaccination. one must note that already in california, all to school children have to be wearing masks. all teachers have to be wearing mass. all teachers have to be vaccinated or face regular testing, but even these steps have absolutely infuriated large numbers of california public who have been staging demonstrations at school board meetings throughout the state . what and so the signs of the struggles of reopening in the us,
8:04 am
the broadway musical aladdin has been forced to cancel, shows only 3 days after reopened. disney says the 10 day break came off of several of code infections reported amongst its constant crew. despite all of them being fully vaccinated, as the 1st corona virus related cancellation of a broadway show since they began reopening over the last few weeks. the wes pharmaceutical company, much sense trial show it's experimental cope at $900.00 pill treatment, reduces hospitalizations and debt by a half. it's data has not yet been published, or peer reviewed. marcus, seeking emergency use authorization in the u. s. if approved, it would be the 1st pill full coven, $19.00 on his shot as a primary healthcare doctor. he says, the pill is a significant development. is a real game changer in our treatment of the school pandemic that has in so many ways shut down civilization. so it's a very exciting day to good day. but this is a drug that mark has developed. i am. my understanding is that there are other
8:05 am
pharmaceutical companies that are also very competitively going to be bringing their versions of this drug, this anti virus agent to the marketplace. and basically what it does is it inhibits the replication of the virus by causing errors in his genetic code. remember, it's an r n, a virus, so transmit r n a to r and a, and this new medication. quite shockingly, because the conventional wisdom was that we could not come up with an anti viral medication to treat an r n, a virus like co, 19 low and behold, science as delivered once again. now, this is all preliminary. now this has been peer reviewed, but i can tell you this. if a phase 3 trials gets shut down early because the data looks good, that's a very promising sign. this is an amazing, i mean this may be actually from a scientific point of view in more startling development than the vaccine itself. the white house, as the u. s. president and members of his democratic party had made progress as
8:06 am
they tried to rescue jo biden's economic agenda in a rare mood for american presidents biden has met with his party members on capitol hill. divisions among democrats threatened his ambitious plans with progressives voting to block a trillion dollar infrastructure bill without larger social spending and a greater focus on climate change rather than jordan as more from washington dc. even though you as president joe biden's trip from the white house to capitol hill was televised on friday afternoon. the democratic leader didn't get what he wanted . members of his party agreeing to vote on 2 key pieces of legislation. a $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure bill, as well as a $3.00 trillion dollar social services and environmental package. that's because progressive and conservatives in the democratic party are split on just how much money to spend, even though they all say they want the same things. now the members of the

progressive wing, the more liberal wing, have been holding things up in the house of representatives. they say their members were sent because their voters want to see more spending on things such as health care, education, child care, and a clean environment. and they intend to deliver. they say without a guarantee that that $3.00 trillion dollar bill is going to be passed. they're not going to vote for the $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure bill, which would improve roads, bridges, internet connections, telecommunications, and the nation's power grid. because of this political standing, the president was called in, basically to try to get the more conservative wing of the democratic party and the more liberal wing to find common ground. but even after that closed door entreaty, they didn't really agree on what to do next. this is what the president had to say
8:08 am
as he left capitol hill on friday afternoon. doesn't matter whether it's a 6 minute day or 6 week, we're going to get it done because members of the health did not vote on a full infrastructure bill. the one that's already been passed by the u. s. senate . they instead spent friday evening voting on a short term 30 day funding package to take care of as, until transportation industry needs. that means they're going to have to come back and deal with that matter in a months time. but in the meantime, members of the house of representatives are going back to their districts across the country for the next 2 weeks. if negotiations turn out any sort of wheel, compromise that members of the entire party are willing to support. they could be called back to washington, but as with everything here, don't hold your breath. united nations as total ethiopia as prime minister, it doesn't accept the country's decision to expel 7 of its senior personnel.

8:23 am
george and politics because michael sec s. v a has made disappearance on the eve of municipal and merrill elections, which the opposition consider is really important because they hope that georgia public will come out to more and vote decisively against the georgia dream government. so make off suckers really has picked this moment now. finally, after all these years to return and shake up the georgia political seat. now a lawyer known for his decades long battle against the u. s. oil, john chevron has been jailed for criminal contempt. steven danziger was sentenced a 6 months in prison by a court in new york. christian salumi reports. stephen danziger arrived in court to a hero's welcome. but the environmentalists indigenous groups who gathered to listen to the judge were deeply disappointed by the sentence 6 months in jail on
8:24 am
charges of contempt of court. the only thing that would have changed today's outcome is the one thing that was never ever going to happen. which was for steven danziger to stand up. 5 and say, i'm sorry, i'm sorry i chunk on chevron. it was back in 2013 that danziger won a $9500000000.00 settlement against the oil giant chevron in ecuador. soon after winning it, chevron took him to court in the united states on charges of bribery and witness tampering. federal prosecutors declined to take the case, but judge louis kaplan appointed private attorneys, attorneys, who once worked for chevron to prosecute it. and in a trial without a jury found him guilty, the contempt charge of stem from his refusal to comply with court orders. and the appeal of that case, gentler and a prescott pushed back against claims that danziger was being over. punish saying
8:25 am
he'd spent 7 years thumbing his nose at the justice system. and even if chevron were the bad guys, that didn't make danziger a good guy. but danziger now forbidden from practicing law, has already spent 2 years essentially confined here in his manhattan apartment, monitored by an electronic ankle bracelet. the reason i'm locked up is because we were successful. okay. i, along with other lawyers helped indigenous peoples in ecuador when a historic 9500000000 dollar pollution judge. when he got chevron for the deliberate dumping of billions or girls of cancer causing waste into the amazon. that's an historical fact that case has been affirmed on appeal by 28 appellate judges, including the highest courts of ecuador in canada, form for, for purposes, you know, so why, why the one being locked up? are you an human rights committee on arbitrary detention has called for his immediate release, saying the judges in his case lacked objectivity and impartiality. chevron has even
8:26 am
stated that they spent over a $1000000000.00 in prosecuting danziger and defending chevron. and obviously this is a message to any human rights lawyer go up against the big corporation and we will take you down, destroy you dancing your plans, you appeal the sentence. as for chevron, the company has yet to pay a penny in damages. kristin salumi al jazeera new york. a train carrying hundreds of protest has arrived in these sudanese capital cartoon activists are holding pro democracy ronnie's to condemn. last week's qu, attempt either morgan as more from culture, despite associations, unions, and civil societies, as well as active. if calling for protests on the 30th of september, for the 2nd day protested, took to the streets once again and gathered in front of the committee to dismantle the june 30th regime. that's the regime that was headed by former president, alma embassy. many of the process of picking all the way from on
8:27 am
a neighboring grove. and i'll say they say that despite the sabbath type that was made on the railways, delaying their trips, and making them not join the processes. yesterday they still want to let the civilian components of this transition. the government know that they have their support and they want to show the military that civilians not just in the capital capital but other parts of the country. despite political differences of the ruling coalition, the brilliant they'll have the majority and they'll have the support of the street, the end of the month, straighten up the line. now, the reason we're out here is because of the recent coo and we want the military to hand power to civilian rule. the other reason we came out to protest is because of the discord they're trying to. so between the military and the people of sudan, we have no issue with the military institution. our real problem is with those from the former regime in the military institution, the officers who want to overthrow the government and our revolution. while some people say that their issue is not with the whole military institution, but rather individuals, all those are calling for
8:28 am
a complete end to the partnership between the military and the civilians. that's an end to the transitional government. but the people here say they all agree on one thing. they want to let the military know that despite the political differences between the ruling called attend the political parties, people here pro fair, a civilian rule over a military rule. and that the military, the political parties, i'm a sibling component of this transitional government has their backing and their support, the residence on the spanish, on the middle, palma, bracing themselves for. they're, they're robson, some they come right there. have volcano alzheimer's during the whole has the story displaying both the majesty and the menace of nature. the volcanic eruption on the island of la palmer is expanding to new vents of opened up adding to the river of lava flowing to the sea. hundreds of homes have been lost, thousands more, remained vacant, evacuated europe, falcon ologist warned that an evolving eruption could yet put others at risk,
8:29 am
or anything will happen, but it's in the bottom of the type of the activity that we have with godaddy. i let, i mean the question is how much sir maria will, will come out there. this is something that that we dont know died. now. constant data monitoring helps experts understand what is happening. many kilometers beneath the earth surface. seismic tremors a few times an hour on the south side of the island, add another dimension, but no one can predict what will happen next to him, but as a miracle room, but it is important and certainty fear in secret here fed that it will affect health we don't know what is going to happen. mm. the expectation is that lava from the to new vent will follow the original flow down along those western slopes that would spare many homes, potentially at risk. but it's entirely possible that uneven terrain here could force a deviation with yet more destructive consequences. and in the power of
