57 years since the country's 1st revolution against military rule. but that's not the only reason these people came out favor are with the in on a game. and so i came here for one reason, not part of any group, but against military rule against the former ruling party. i came here to show that we want to civilian government. i came here to support a democratic the for the in transition. we want all the military away from power with any the demonstrations were called by the forces of freedom and changed coalition. that's the coalition that signed a power sharing agreement with the military in 2019 following the ousting of longtime president al model machine, it led to the formation of a transitional government with the executive power given to civilians that place to improve the economy and rebuild state institutions, 2 years on some say, many of the goals of the revolution haven't been achieved because i don't know if it's not a complete civilian government yet. we want it to be
a completely civilian government. and when we participated in the revolution, it wasn't because of food or fuel. it was because we wanted justice to live in peace. there are some achievements, but we want the military to hand over power. an attempted coup in late september resulted in a rift between the 2 sides sharing power. it prompted the military to call for reforms within the forces of freedom and change. the 4th of the freedom and change wants to show it has a large support base among the population. it also wants to convey to military leaders, despite the lack of political reforms, and you cannot make progress. many of me still prefer a civilian government. it's also a response to the sit in front of the presidential palace over the past week. supporters of a dissident coalition from the forces of freedom and change, known as the national charter alliance, has called on the government to be dissolved and a technocrat government replaced its support have called for military, took over in the short term. i should not mind much. when the country is being run
by a few political parties, while there are many other groups that are in the country, where are these other groups? we don't see demi loaded in government, they are being marginalized. we want the military to take control until the elections are held up. those in front of the presidential palace say they won't leave until the government is dissolved, while those who protested on 1st, they say they won't allow for the solution. to dance prime minister says those who came out and says that the protest should commitment to, to dance, transition to civilian rule. but some of you can assume you today, you have proven your commitment to peacefulness and the path of freedom, democracy and civilian transition. people have given their voice to pass the message that there will be no backing dam from the revolution done. he has called for dialogue, but each side is waiting for the other to compromise. while for dance, transition to democracy remains for giles caught between them. he but morgan august 0 to me. these european government has carried out our stripes on the northern to
gray region for the 3rd time this week. a government says it targeted a military training center in the capital mckelly. 3 people were killed in air strikes on monday, rebels integrated say they were civilians, but the federal government disputes that thousands of people have been killed and wound. $2000000.00 displaced says the fighting, broke out integer i almost a year ago. 1000000000 doses of grown of irish vaccines have been administered in india. the government wants the entire population immunized by the end of the year . this is poor nations continued to wait for the dose as they were promised. in parts of europe, the reluctance to get vaccinated as prompting a surgeon infections, including in the russian capital. moscow is just announced it's strictest lockdown since june last year with only supermarkets and pharmacies are to stay open from next week. ben smith report by finding its health workers across some of the remotest parts of the country. india has now given at least one dose of covey,
19 vaccine to 3 quarters of its 1380000000 population prime minister, nor, and remote. he visited a new daily hospital to celebrate the billionth dose, but only 31 percent of had 2 doses. they did a certain degree of apathy, as well as the feeling that the worst as fast as that is no for the rest. so many people are not really going in for the 2nd goes straight away in years, sitting on vaccines, stock of a 100000000 doses and has recently started exporting again. it's africa whether needed less than 5 percent of the continence population has been vaccinated. the world health organization says that could mean the pandemic goes on for a year longer than it needs to developing countries should not have to wait for the charity rich nations. because that charity, as we've seen in the last year in a hall, is not happening. we cannot rely on their law, jess, we have to have manufacturing him to do that. we have to share the recipe that were
publicly funded in the 1st place in some eastern european countries. the challenge is persuading enough people to get jumped. latvia is the 1st european nation to go back into lockdown. only 54 percent of latvian adults are vaccinated. you average is 74 percent. bulgaria and romania are also struggling to cope with a surgeon infections. while in russia. corona virus related deaths, i've hit another daily record of more than a 1000. the government is imposing a weeklong workplace shut down from the start of november. it's very clear that in countries that have low vaccine uptake, that's where we're seeing the serious panoramic effects at the moment in terms of deaths and people ending up in hospital. and so at the general population level, i believe that russia sits around that sentence with a complete immunization series. and that's similar to what we're seeing in other countries like romania, bulgaria, u. k. as more cases than france, germany,
italy and spain combined. and poland is also facing a significant rise and affections now at $5000.00 a day, which may require drastic action just as the continent heads towards winter. bernard smith al jazeera, the u. k has recorded another 52000 current virus cases on thursdays infections that continue to serge. a prime minister bars johnson says he's watching very carefully, but does not intend to bring in tighter controls at current infection levels. donahoe has more from central london. covered 900, making a pretty significant come back here in england, particularly infection numbers have been rising throughout october, hitting in fact 52000 on thursday and they're ologist along with the health secretary have been warning that they could hit a 100000 during the course of this winter death numbers are already where they were in march, but remember, then the country was in locked down. now, 7 months later old meaningful mitigations have been lifted. for some time people
largely going about their lives as if it was all over. well, it's not, of course the protection conferred by the double vaccine jobs is waning, particularly in old age groups. the booster program isn't going all that well. and the 2 main unions representing doctors and medical staff have insisted that the government so called plan be instituted instantly bringing in a new range of mitigation as well. that's not going to happen. prime minister bars johnson said that while numbers were going up, they were going up within the parameters of expectations of set up by the government modelers. he says, we're going into this winter vastly better prepared than we went into last. well, this is a government that just a week ago in a parliamentary report was lam basted for a string of failures during the early phase of the pandemic. and once again, from a variety of quarters, its being accused of not acting swiftly enough of failing to learn the lessons of the 1st part of the pen. still to come, miss ha. i think we have to be dos,

mostly though we're looking at a dry weather was that typically increase per se, going up to $26.00, can have an up to $31.00 on the coast or west australia, up to $41.00. but still the arc of potential big showers. not as big as he wouldn't necessarily, but they could still produce a certain amount of hail. now it is the wet season in some parts of indonesia. so all the kinds going south, that doesn't mean you don't get showers elsewhere. for example, on the shores of viet nam, this is on shore breeze. with the northeast, the monsoons come in, nasa, they'll be more potential for flooding. here is turn cooling. you might like in hong kong, below average that dramatic change drop about 10 degrees recently. but there's still plenty of rain to come to viet nam and also for the philippines. and also the monsoon is slowly a monsoon trough is going south. we've had a lot of rain recently in the north east, which is the what is part of the world. but it's now dry for friday, a lot of relief. ah,

will now decide whether to prosecute bannon and fisher has more from washington dc . it's interesting in that the democrats thought they would win the vote, but they didn't think there would be 9 republicans who had joined them in voting to hold steve bannon, in contempt. now there was known republicans, 2 of them already serve on as the 6th of january committee. so you would expect them to cast their vote that way, but 7 others that it was a big number as far as the democrats were concerned. many of them of them are republicans who are in a very tight races in upcoming elections. so perhaps felt that defending steve bannon was not the hell the capitol hill to die. and so therefore decided that they would vote to hold steve bannon, in contempt. the web, democrats who are worried about their sport, they were concerned that if the republicans get controlled at the midterm elections in 2022 or at some point afterwards, there would be
a flurry of subpoenas. and that would just tie up the whole idea of the democrats trying to do any sort of business on capital hill. but in the end, they decided that the question of holding congress in contempt was much more important. and that is why the voted this now goes to the department of justice to make a decision on whether or not to charge steve bannon, mary garland, the attorney general has in the last hour said that they will study the evidence and study the case before making a final decision as such, the ban and he said this was a question of executive privilege that he'd been speaking to donald trump. and that it really should be that the court to decide whether or not he was protected under donald trump exercising that executive privilege. you have been leaders have been pushing for dialogue with poland. as an increasingly bitter feud overshadows a summit in brussels that was supposed to focus on the energy crisis. several member state say that you should not release $42000000000.00 in pandemic recovery
fans until the issue is resolved. approx, concerned its foundations are being threatened out. opponents constitutional court rule that in you law only applies in specific areas. parents prime minister has remained defiant, saying his government won't respond to blackmail erasure merger. we will not act under the pressure of blackmail. we are ready for the dialogue. should we do not agree to constantly expanding the scope of competencies. jim, but we will of course, talk about how to resolve recurring these fuchs in agreement, and in dialogue through groups a silver shirt. but if you want to be part of a club, and if you want to have the advantages of being in a club and they are clear to everyone including the foolish people, then you need to respect the rules. you can't be a member of a club and say the rules don't apply to me. as collab 10 natasha battle or in brussels, we're talks have just wrapped up for the night. so do we have any idea whether, whether the route over poland has been resolved in any way
when it doesn't seem that it's been resolved and if it has, we're certainly not being told about it because you leaders have wrapped up a business of for the day this was the 1st a day of a 2 day summit and it was day dominated by this route between member state of poland and the you know, that you has accused poland repeatedly in the past of eroding rights and the independence of the judiciary and things really came to an end head earlier this month when a top polish court ruled that a polish law could take precedence over you law in some areas. now that was seen as absolute explosive. in you circles, rocking the foundations of the you because all member states must abide by you law . well lead us here. we're very vocal in the criticism of poland all except for hungry polish ally, the lead of the havoc to all been praising a poland stand. nevertheless,
yachts of divisions on one side you have some leaders saying what is needed is a tough punitive measures against poll and things like a withholding you money a launching legal action. on the other side though, you have those who are calling for dialogue, calling for com to deescalate the tensions. now the problem is for the e, you is they are facing a real headache, a challenge because on one side, if they are to put in place top sanctions against poland, they could risk some say, alienating ponens, pushing pole. and further away from that you something that they said you don't want to risk. so soon off to break it. on the other hand, if they don't do anything, they could look week and that would send them wrong message to other member states and natasha. european energy crisis was supposed to be the focus wasn't what can we expect to any conclusions on that? yes, we do have a conclusions on europe's energy crisis. it was one of the main topics on the
agenda, even though talks were overshadowed by poland leaders, very concerned in europe over rising natural gas prices, those gas prices that have been a soaring, fueled in parts by the fact that so many countries across europe, of course, have been coming out of long looked downs. that means that demand has absolutely serge for energy, but governments have been trying to look at ways that they can shield their people, their populations against these rising prices, particularly as we are going into the winter months here. now what the commission is recommending is that the member states do things like cut taxes off their energy bills, put forward a financial assistance for poor households. as the recommendations were actually made a week ago by the commission, the commission says that those recommendations must be upheld, but it will also look at the wider picture of the gas and energy market in europe.
perhaps looking at making some reforms in the future though, in the long term, the emphasis said the head of the commission, i sort of atlanta has to be on moving europe towards renewable energy, things like wind and solar because only then will the e. u. she said become more self reliant on his energy needs and thought about that . thank you very much. indeed. lawmakers in been in her voted to legalized abortion . it means women in the west african nation can now access the procedure openly. within the 1st 3 months of pregnancy, it was previously only allowed on the very strict conditions, including of the mother's life was at risk. several countries in africa have total bands on abortion. i go to see psycho new as chairperson of the african network of women leaders for development. she helps the ruling might influence nations in the region is log on to deal. so the reservation of last of

that might surprise you. but at the end of summer and the sheep had been rounded up for market farming as part of the way of life in the south. for these lands also hold new possibilities. i headed up a mountain valley near the town of nasa. the rocks here hold some of the world's richest deposits of rarer minerals. this is the site of an old uranium mine. it's long been decommissioned. but now international mining companies want to dig deep again. the rock within all around us here is 434 kilometers beneath the earth's crust. and then about a 1000000000 years ago, these mountains just rid up. and they reckon that within this area alone, there are one and a half 1000000 tons of rare with minerals, with another $26000000.00 tons at a site nearby. and all of that combined is enough to supply the wealth total need. a rare earth minerals for 115 years, which is why this whole area is just so valuable and has so much attention. this is
