call for more action from well need is a head of a major climate conference. about frances and dozens of religious leaders make a joint appeal to governments to commit to ambitious targets at next month. un climate summit in glasgow. i righty joins us now live from vatican city and adam, tell us more about what we're expecting to come from this for what we're hearing already. nick coming out of the conference, taking place behind me. the vatican. are these religious leaders saying how important it is to fuse religious with science, religious feeling with scientific findings? that is, they say it's now scientific fact proven. accepted fact that human action is caused climate change. but all these religious leaders speaking in this room, not far from where i'm standing. i've said it's time for us to spread the word among our flock. tell them how important it is to honor our responsibility to the planet earth. they're saying we know what's happening now, we must act and they're saying that scientific fact isn't enough to motivate people, but that we much touch people's spiritual personas. what they've been saying,
11:21 am
they're trying to make this powerful, potent message that without religions that this might fall flat on a global level, because people don't often act with their mind. these leaders are saying they act with their heart and with their spirit. so it's been this interesting make, but it's actually more symbolic than anything because none of these leaders really way in, at this conference coming up and class go. but pope francis, one of the most important religious leaders, of course, on the planet, has put his imprimatur on this. he has been saying this for years that the earth is god's greatest gift to mankind are human kind. he says, when he says is important that we honor that and not to spoil it further. so we're hearing a lot of that similar message from these dozens of leaders meeting right now and out of yukon under state pipe from his influence. here he's got follow you molded a 1000000000 catholics around the world. indeed, i mean,
11:22 am
and he's made the environment a leading cause of his papacy in 2015. he published loud that those see which was a call for urgent action. actually quote, called for swift and bold action to tackle the climate crisis. he makes his presence felt at many of these global vents. he beamed into a youth conference via zoom in milan, north of here last week where there were 400 delegates from the use for climate conference, who gave their proposals for action to take to tackle the climate crisis. in fact, one of those delegates was here. so he is this driving force gathering these people, many of them we don't know much about, but of course we all know who pope francis's and the fact that he's gathered these dozens of leaders there has continued to show how he's made the environment a corner stone of his papacy, and he wants to make that tent as big as possible to get other religious leaders on board to spread that message widely. interesting, or adam, thanks. that's adam ready? the baskin sitting in his room. now catholic and conservative groups of mexico who protested against
11:23 am
a court ruling that could pave the way for the de criminalization of abortions. demonstration comes off to pro abortion rights groups rallied in several latin american cities last week. and nora palo has mauna from mexico city were walking down the main avenue that cuts right through the middle of mexico city with several 100 demonstrators. now this march was organized by religious institutions, as well as anti abortion groups that are against a recent ruling by mexico's supreme court that effectively decriminalize is abortion. nationwide. game of guess at abbey say we won't our conclusions following the supreme court decision to be taken into account. there are millions of women who are not in favor of these changes. are mill this march arrives on the heels of pro choice demonstrations that have taken place here in mexico and elsewhere in latin america. marking international women's reproductive rights day will be bad. yeah, yeah. many girls for raped and then forced to be mothers,
11:24 am
and that has to change happen. america has spoken. i ha, many of the demonstrators here are dawning blue and are waving flags and holding up a lot of religious imagery. after all, mexico is one of the most populous catholic countries in the world. so there has been an expectation that there would be pushed back by religious, conservative against the de criminalization of abortion. what's interesting as well is the timing of these protests which are occurring as pro choice demonstrations have swept the u. s. following that court ruling in the us state of texas restricting abortion rights. opening the door to a scenario where women in the u. s. could be turning to mexico for safe and legal abortions despite abortion de criminalization being finalized here in mexico religious group, see that they are committed to continue to fight for that ruling to be overturned. british prime minister bars johnson has insisted that petrol shortages and rising cost a part of what he called an adjustment period for the u. k. as speaking on the 1st

up is a major theme of this conference and this government, the dr. re quality of opportunity, regardless of background or incoming and a redistribution of investment and infrastructure spending to the regents for paying for that involves cutting, social benefits and increasing texas and several 1000 anti austerity protest as may dec concerns heard as they march past the conference when you, well, basically the conservative government are driving people into poverty at the moment . they've taken millions of the blood merlow. they're cutting benefits under driving down wages, terms and conditions. ranking deeply, la sunshade of the haunted forest johnson's arguments to the conference and to the water public is the principal of jammed to morrow. yes, there will be shortages of the federal pumps. the may even be shortages on supermarket shelves leading up to the crucial christmas period. but he says the u. k is in a transition period where it's moving to a higher wage, higher still economy. and he says the benefits will soon come. there are doubts,
11:27 am
even among his conservative colleagues about the strong likelihood that more tax rises may be needed to pay for all this. and the 2019 election. johnson's party made spectacular gains in manchester and the north of england. the question is whether he can win them over again when he gives his keynote conference speech on wednesday, paul brennan, al jazeera manchester. the spanish government has pledged $239000000.00 to help the island of la palmer recover from the devastation caused by it's a rupture volcano. that's enough in general who reports from la pump, volcanic ash and toxic gas explode into the sky. 6000 meters up and the wind can carry it almost anywhere. for the island of la palmer, that means everywhere. here on the southern shoreline, on the opposite side of the island are salt pans carved into black volcanic rock. this farm faces disaster. much of the crop has been ruined by falling ash. oh,
11:28 am
cather, cassandra, i thought of betty de eleanor last thought, i better you thought. undress explains that the salt was about to be harvested progress. now this is yield will be down by up to 40 percent. so rank say a city i said, oh no besedia no, i would describe it as a nightmare. an awful dream of to such a bad year with covert when we're trying to recover. we get this situation which is unbelievable. agriculture makes up around half of law. palmer's economy, most of it bananas clinging to volcanic hillsides where they thrive. here to the falling, ash has caused terrible damage tearing into banana skins, making them i'm salable, and worst. the love of flow has cut off irrigation channels to some of the islands . most prolific plantations, that leaves tourism, but the beaches are empty. package holiday makers, absent,

it's the beginning of the season on an island, famous for winter, some yet in the marina's, the boats are tied up. normally we're just going out get this whole boat in full with the 60 people every day from monday until sunday. yes. like 2 times a day, 3 times a day, 2 days after that the bill comes close. we just stopped. we still fired in from the banana. sorry. was defended from that big boom from the volcano there. yeah. and now we try to be, am, you know, together, and fight the situation and start it again. but as i told you before, we don't know what is going to happen, how long's going to be the situation. images of the volcano being consumed around the world will certainly help to put this canary island on the map. but that doesn't mean that tourists are flocking,
11:30 am
hear anything but right now. and in the wake of huge losses generated by the pandemic. that is a tragedy for many. what remains are volcano tourists, many from neighboring islands and mainland spain. but this eruption could last months and they will not sustain an economy that for the time being is going up in smoke. jonah, how out a 0 le palmer ah so this is our desert, these are the top stories and ethiopians prime minister beyond that has been swollen for 2nd term after he and his party secured a landslide victory and june's elections. he's described the pole as if he of his 1st attempt at a free and fair vote for it was overshadowed by the conflict into gray where hundreds of thousands of facing famine. catherine saw he has more now from nairobi in neighboring kenya. this is an election even if an african.
