it's always a stressful yeah, it would be much easier for me might feel that white people yeah. part to go into today and thing a thong. right. that skin 3rd carry other people's weight is that it minute you get way down. you thought what you're doing and maybe one studio b unscripted on al jazeera. ah, ah, barbados begins a new chapter in its history. as the island nation breaks, ties with the british monarchy and becomes a republic. ah, you're watching l 0 live from a headquarters in delphi, i'm getting obligated also coming up. president joe biden tells americans not to panic after the discovery of the new cove at 19 variant and rules outs imposing a locked down costs. i'm sorry, i've been jobby in our con,
about 7 buckets thought. and i'll tell you how decade later the ringo community is still struggling to integrate a glimpse of what's to come. katara kicks off a major football tournament a year out from the fif of world cup. ah . hello, the caribbean island nation of barbados has just become a republic after ending its ties with the british monarchy. sandra mason was sworn in his president after the country removed. queen elizabeth as its head of states. barbados gained independence from britain in 1966, but kept the system of monarchy. country will still be a member of the commonwealth group of nations or latin america. editor lucio newman . was that the festivities in bridgetown. it is quite an extraordinary occasion to become a republic. doesn't ever really most public since so long ago.
but in the case of islands, many of them considered 16 of them to be exact. wellness of great britain, between the queen is the head of state. barbados has had a long and complete history wanting to become what it says is independent nation. in fact, back in the 1600s when great britain turned to be just into really the, the capital or the crushed major calling to become a snake slave colony on the porch. since then, it's many people had to fight was on to become the truly independent nation. wanted to become in 55 years ago today. money tried to push for the public staff is no longer to be a constitutional monarchy, as it was up to just about an hour ago. so there were
a lot of mixed feelings here not, but i would say compared to relationship, a good strong. this was received warmly by the public at the same time, there is a sense of pride and the feeling that this time finally cooper basis to cut the physical chord with the monitor the queen and become a true independent country. let's discuss this with the anna white law because a rural historian. she's joining us from cambridge in the u. k. thanks for your time with us on al jazeera, so we saw the festivities taking place in barbados. how do you think buckingham palace is doing this? walking in palace away said for a day since the time of the queen's rain and, and the process of the colonization and the end of the british empire that they were very happy for countries too, for their own. paul were relaxed in the words of prince philip about the idea that countries in the future want to break with the british crown. however, of course,
i think they would be a little bit anxious, nervous about how this would play in the media. and of course, there's always the danger this would be seen as the beginning of a domino effect where other of the u. k. realms would also break them on a key. and that might be seen as a, as a rejection of the monarchy, which might have more profound implications. i think that they'll also be some relief actually that this was happening under the queen, rather than at the start of the new writing of prince charles. because at that point, it might be seen as a boat against him directly. and that would be, you know, potentially as a problematic inducement or lack of it at the beginning. if he's right, you say that the buckingham palace could be worried about the implications of other realms. took this step as well. what, what are those implications? well, i mean, i think they've said that, you know, they would be very relaxed about it. and obviously the priority for the queen and
really buckingham policies that countries who may members of the commonwealth of nations, of which the queen is head. and although it's not hereditary position, it's been approved that charles would succeed her. but i think more the in the u. k, it might create a kind of questioning about the mon, the key. i mean, i think there's acceptance, the over the next few decades been a top now caribbean countries may well break with the crown. i think that's big questions to great to significant if it was australia using the canada as seen as whether to be big supporters of them on the key and less complicated relationship with the british crown than those countries in the caribbean. what type of relationship do you foresee going forward between barbados and the u. k? i think it will continue to be
a very close relationship mostly and quintile. get along very well the. the british love to holiday in barbados tourism is hugely important for their economy. so i think that will be sustained efforts to maintain that they can, i think, i think really there'll be a discernible change and very thin barbados. suddenly those in government are stressing, this is just the final stage of bait of claiming its independence. and it's in no way or rejection of britain on the british crown. that said though, there are others who are saying, you know, good, we didn't, the monarchy and so cool. now all seem for they have been for many years reparations from british crown, dating back to the period of slavery. ok, thank you so much on a white lock for joining us from the u. k. accorded me and mar, has delayed the verdict and the trial of house and liter i'm on since she until next week. so she is facing charges of incitement on violating current of iris
restrictions. she was detained in february when the military sees power. florence louis has more on the trial sources, confirm that the court in navy door has deferred the verdicts till next monday. but there wasn't a reason given as to why the voted has been deferred. non political analysts and observers outspoken to say they wouldn't have been surprised if santucci had been found guilty. many say the military still fear how popular almost on suit she is. she had in the last 2 general elections led her party, the national lead for democracy to huge victories. and they wouldn't be surprised if she had been found guilty and also given a prison sentence or the very likely she would have been allowed to serve that under house arrest as previous military governments had done. now, few people believe on santucci has been given a fair trial. she and her co defendants have had very limited access to the defense lawyers. there are no reports of ad,
the proceedings or the hearings because no journalists, no members of the public, are loud at the hearings. and many people have described these trials against fuji and her co defendant as show trials as a way for the june time to legitimize the coo. but the military government has denied this, and it spokesman says authentic she has been the for, has been accorded due process under the rule of law in law many members of the ro hinge or ethnic group of flood violence and me tomorrow. and they say their rights are being ignored in the countries where they sought refuge. thousands were forced to leave home during a military crackdown in 2017, some of inject, a met summer. hinge in karachi, pakistan where tens of thousands live the technologies made it easier for new to stay in touch. with other displaced wrangler. many of his relatives have gone missing some died while trying to flee persecution in myanmar afraid and anxious for those left behind. we'd use in pictures of the violence in myanmar go around
quickly. he's a community leader in the kind of bad neighborhood of pakistan's largest city karachi, named dr. a coastal region in mi on mar, a kind of budget home to tens of thousands of state. las wrangler. more of a force from their homes after every bout of violent track down against them in minority for the state sanctioned violence. they face the un calls rank, one of the world's most persecuted minorities, and their suffering doesn't end when they leave me on mar. some of these children of the 3rd generation of those, the space between the 960 to the 980. but they're still considered undocumented immigrants despite being born in buckets fun. the love among them is heavy, but who wants to become a doctor? but she's been denied even the infant death to medical schools because she does not have the prerequisite national identity card for the past 78th, my intermediate exams and one to become
a doctor. but i don't have the pages as my father's id is blocked. my dream is to become a doctor so that i can serve my community as they are unable to get good medical care because of poverty. not that a lot of she was lucky as many don't even get this far. this football field in the squalid conditions of a con about is a glaring example of their plight. the plan space for recreation and opportunity is now a garbage dump that are hanging in this community are forced to live like this. what i cannot tell you is the french around us, the children here have very few prospects. and even when they grow up, they have no place to call home. because i don't care, i'm the one that i'm, what is our crime that we can get the national identity card and the movement is received. we can take a woman to hospitals for child, but we can't do business. and even calling in to see for fishing, to earn a living and due to the wrong policies of the government. and people are left with few choices other than crime and subversive activities as they have to feed
themselves and their families. walking phones, government is facing criticism from the community or what they see as it's contradictory policies instead of implementing the existing law that every child born here has it right to citizenship. what initiatives that announced every few years, which means that remain stateless. the 2 most important things that focus on the government needs to be doing to deal with the issue. the state looseness is number one, implementation of the birthright citizenship, which is provided in the citizenship back. number 2 is to ensure that rules laid the alien registration rules are not made which are discriminatory. and which ensure that state looseness is something that remains generational and does not in ringo say there hardworking people and not a burden on the state. the leaders want the government to provide them identification for all the tax revenue they generate. young men sneak and fishing votes to earn a living if they're caught, they could face years in prison. a risk worth taking,
