1:01 pm
a new chapter and its history. has the island nation breaks tires with the british monarchy and becomes a republic or on the front line and east in ukraine, where it russian forces, gathering nature is holding a meeting after fears of an invasion. i'm, if you could say with sport law from official studio with you all the funding, doug, all day one of the fee for arab come ah, 1st though to some breaking news. uganda has launched to air strikes against the armed group. the allied democratic forces across the border and neighboring democratic republic of congo, and comes weeks after 3 suicide bomb attacks, income, pollock hill, several people. you guys are north tardies blamed the adf for those bombings. well,
1:02 pm
let's bring in malcolm web. he's following developments for us from nairobi, malcolm we initially heard this was a joint operation between the d r c government and the u. gannons. but now it appears that the d r c side is stepping back from out you got to know me spoke folks been treated just earlier today a short while ago that it was a joint operation that had begun with drugs and artillery fire. but congress government has subsequently said that actually this is just gotten an operation, not entirely clear, but certainly you've gotten the going to one at this stage, this not to be portrayed as an invasion and to be portrayed as very much something that's been agreed to. and now we have heard murmurings from security utilities in the communities military for weeks. this was being planned before those bombings, income parlor then 2 weeks ago with a 3 suicide bombings, income, part of which, as you said, you've gotten the government lamed on the allied democratic forces. and that led to
1:03 pm
this, you've gotten the military operation in congo now, which certainly is quite controversial because of the history. are you gotten that neighboring you've gotten to the military invaded congo in 1996. they've been accused of backing rebel groups. have been accused of looting. denny mccrae gay, the nobel laureate, who, who works in that part of congo in south kiva, not part of the country. he tweeted that congo doesn't need austin if firefights isn't by that he's implying that you've gotten the coolest instability anything longer before i shouldn't be allowed to come in sensibly to try and bring stability to the certainly some controversy about this in the government of congress actually still trying to collect billions of dollars that were awarded in, in reparations from uganda for its looting in the late ninety's and early 2000 that you got to still hasn't paid. indeed will you mention the history then alchemy,
1:04 pm
abs has obviously been active in this region for years now. they've also declared a link to isolate. so how much of a difference will inoffensive like this make g thing? well, you've gotten the military is certainly relatively strong compared to the current military. the current military has been trying to bring stability to the eastern provinces of congo for months now with what was called a state of siege. but this states have seized the military strategies been lighted with allegations and reports of corruption. but this isn't the 1st time that congress governments tried to finish off the abs. now it was 8 years ago. i went to congress military was at a high point to just defeated. the n 23 rebels, rightly widely believed to be backed by neighboring rwanda. and at that time that a program to try and clean up all of the rebel groups in east, in congo with support from a special un unit that had a strength and mandate to fight peacekeepers with
1:05 pm
a mandate to fight. and at that time, the congress soldiers, the middles, is voting to make sure that they were paid on time and paid, paid adequately. so this resulted in very little looting and relatively effective fighting force, but to the commanded who were leading those operations within assassinated and not really to wind out of the sales of colonies. army opperation is certainly paid. somebody powerful didn't want the operation to succeed. and since then, the abs, how to come back and become notorious for master carrying civilians. and most recently been blamed for those bombing attacks income parlor. although the degree to which the adf connected with those foreign armed groups that you were talking about, i said, i'll show bobby in somalia, our suburban modes, i be the extent to those connection is not entirely clear, but certainly is clear that there are deep local grievances and then political congress, political interests that played in a lot of business interest in that part of the country,
1:06 pm
which key factors in this conflict. now somewhere there across that for us from nairobi will be staying cross that story for you here on out there. thank you my now, to the pandemic and financial markets of and rattled by a warning from drug make madonna, that new vaccines may be needed to combat the army. kron variant of coven 19 european stalks of follow the asian markets, which were down by as much as 2.4 percent on tuesday. but owners chief stefan ban cell said the high number of mutations in our micron and it's rapid spread in south africa. indicates that vaccines will need to be tweaked. a number of countries have already banned travel to and from southern africa, including japan, which has now confirmed its 1st case. but u. s. president joe biden has ruled out imposing another lock down there and is urging americans not to panic. well, let's bring in fatty salami. he joins us from tokyo body despite those very strict
1:07 pm
travel restrictions. we saw. japan now has this case of one micron. how is the government and the public they're responding well, the government has been very swift in enforcing across the board band in city of all for visitors to japan since 0 o'clock today. the band all foreigners from coming in the country except for the foreigners who have been there and even those people who have exempted before from staying and current in facilities. now they have to stay for 14 days, especially people from 14 countries that have seen the new variant of omicron. so the government has moved very swiftly and, but i missed that from you should have explained that he understands that many people could accuse him that he has been too cautious about the issue, especially from the business sector. but he doesn't want to take any risk. this is,
1:08 pm
this is one of the best for his, for his leadership, since it's since he took office in october 4th. so it's less than 2 months. and he want to show that he has the leadership and he doesn't want to fall in the same spot where his body, this is suca, fell when he acted very slow. and he preferred to emphasize on the economy activities. and that led to a backlash and forced him to design data and saudi. we are already seeing the economic fall out from ami kron as well as the travel band. well this is the concern of many of the japanese public of the band has seen a huge decrease in the numbers of infections during the last few months. just on monday, the number of infections in all of japan was 82 cases only. so the people were
1:09 pm
feeling a sense of relief, but now with the new information about the highly infectious body. and so for me growing people are getting no more worried especially, or that also the government has a drafted and issued a new stimulus package for the economy of about $400000000.00. so people had the very high expectation, but now they are watching how the markets are tumbling, especially today in stock market. nick a index us for about $1.00 points. so many people are concerned about the economic situation and we're coming to the christmas shopping season. so many businesses here are going to lose it, lose this chance because of the new variance, of course, and the wild experiencing that to the same thing for the summer there with all the latest for us from tokyo. thank you. thought he well, let's bring in doctor borrowed penn county. he's a senior clinical lecturer at the university of x as a medical school and an expert and infectious disease control. he joins us now from
1:10 pm
boss doctor, thanks for joining us again here on out of there, there's obviously been so much speculation. so let's start with what we actually do . know about me crohn. there are at least 50 mutations, i believe $32.00 alone on the spike. protein and i know many people that sounds pretty terrifying. what does that actually mean? yet we need to keep it calm. so what it actually means is, the wires is made off or renee and this are a ne codes for a number of proteins, etc. and in one section, which codes for the manufacture of the spike protein, there are many mistakes, or what we would call many mutations. and with this many mistakes, mutations, the structure of the spite of protein changes and when the structure, meaning the shape of it changes, it can become more infectious, less infectious, more disease causing and more interestingly, also possibly bypass the vaccines. so it is the many changes in the spike
1:11 pm
protein that is causing all this interest and concern with ami crohn. oh, and you mentioned there about vaccine efficacy. madonna is already saying that they're going to potentially take months to tweak their vaccine. but i did see that both there's an pfizer stocks have been rising over the past few days as markets have dipped amid all these fears that are current vaccines went back. so can you talk us through how you see this playing out, especially in terms of time. yes, again, before we go on to the timing issue, i'd like to reassure our viewers that i expect the current immunity from the vaccines. so given will work, it may not work a 100 percent, but it will work. there will be cross immunity. so i want people to feel reassured that all is not lost. how it works is very simple. what we do is the instructions in the vaccines be advisor or more. dana or astrazeneca are now tweaked to mirror the only cone and instructions. in other words,
1:12 pm
we use the code that is on the only comb variant to code for in, in the vaccines. so when we give you that vaccine, the modified one, it now produces the protein that is found on omni grown. that's what it is, it can be done. it's very easy to do the logistics take time, but to tweak it is very easy. so well, in the meantime though, we're already seeing community transmission of on the con and there are still obviously many of these travel bands in place. are they, in a sense, buying time? yes we are, we have to buy time and hence the precautionary principle, which is why, whilst we don't know how this virus behaves, we restrict movement and we restrict the generation of new cases. having said all this, it is really important to keep a calm no, because it may come to pass that omnicom is not as not to be so work as we and
1:13 pm
we think it might be. so in 2 to 3 weeks time, we will know a lot more. in the meantime, we remain careful and cautious doctor by pan county, they're a senior clinical let track the university of exit medical school. always great to have your thoughts with us here, dr. on out as they are, thanks for joining us again. thank you. now moving on and a report in australia has found that one and 3 people working in the federal parliament has experience sexual harassment. the independence, inquiring to parliamentary workplace culture was ordered by prime minister scott morrison. sara clark report up to 7 months, nearly 500 interviews and 300 written submissions. australia is 6 discrimination investigative, painted a toxic picture of workplace misconduct. i have 51 percent of all people currently income a column entry work places have experienced at least one incident of bullying,
1:14 pm
sexual harassment, or actual or attempted sexual assault investigation was triggered by rights allegations made by parliament to staff member who exposed to her boon and whom conduct declaring that one in 3 staff in federal parliament had experienced sexual harassment. on top of this, kate jenkins says the problem is largely driven by power imbalances, gender inequality, and failure to protect the victims who speak out. there is also a wearing li lord level of reporting indicating that it's not safe to spake. i'm 11 percent of people who experience sexual harassment in apollo mentary workplace reported their experience. he's telling prime minister was quick to respond. he called the report shocking and says is indeed for high standards in australia's federal parliament. like anyone who works in this building, i find the statistics that are presented there, of course,
1:15 pm
appalling and disturbing. i wish i found the more surprising but i find them just as a boring the prime minister is now under pressure to act on the recommendations, including better protection for those victims, willing to speak out. sarah cloth out a 0 prison australia. well, let's bring in michelle o'neill, she's the president of the trailing council of trade unions to join us now from melbourne. michelle, this really great to the heart of working culture and parliament. i know alcohol has been identified as one of the dr. isn't meant able to criticize the lack of women and senior roles in your mind. what are the factors that have been driving this kind of behavior? well, the thing to say, call it a fed parliament as a web price to the high risk workplace, but it's also the case that it's a microcosm and many other workplaces all around a year. and in fact, the world. and what this inquiry found is that fundamental the high
1:16 pm
levels of harassment, assault and blame was power and balances and contin agenda of quality. so the fact that it is a power fueled workplace as to the charges, the p law quote, is already what we know behind many cases harass them. and of course inequality which is the balance of power between women and men. the majority of cases, harassment, and default, and bullying, or experienced by women, but not solely by women. so there is an issue that to make issue within our parliament house, but also within the all about what cases will we just heard, scott morrison, they say that he wasn't terribly surprised by these findings. now, if that's actually the case, why hasn't something been done sooner? well, that's exactly the question for scott morrison, because his government commissioned inquiry into sexual harassment across all went
1:17 pm
pie, susan astray. yeah. more than 2 years ago that received the report that was done by the 6 discrimination commission at the same post. and that has done this report into parliament house and k jenkins at the time where i had made 55 recommendations that were comprehensive, that were about what needed to change and changing the law as well as the behavior that would mean that women was safe at work and that all work cuz with fact and instead of implementing over $55.00 of those recommendations, the government did nothing for more than 12 months until there was a public exposure of an allegation of red within parliament half. and then women across the street. it took to the students in march is in much the she is much the justice management and it was only in response to many thousands of women and miss support is taking to the strengths of the government finally responded to the 1st
1:18 pm
report. but instead of implementing it back back, tries the really low hanging fruit, they only implemented some of the weakest elements of the lead to further changes and not the cool ones that will make the difference that failed to implement the legal change that would make employees responsible for preventing sexual harassment, which is where we need to buy. michelle given the history here that you've just described for us, you now confident that the recommendations of this new report will actually be implemented. no, i'm not at all confident about that because we have a history now about prime minister and in fact, a government that talk is cheap. they often talk about being concerned about face t women and safety in the community and the workplaces that when it comes to the crunch about using their power and their capacity to make clothes and change the culture as well as people's rides. they back away from it. so we have very
1:19 pm
concerned that again, they'll be lip service paid to these rather than urgent changes that are needed. this is disgraceful one, a parliament should fit a standard that is the highest possible standard as a workplace. that shouldn't be a high risk workplace. it should actually be the example for others to follow that instead we see the opposite and we see, and this is entrenched, not just the power and balances that i spoke about before, but also when the conditions are work that a systemic there. and around that country, one of the other things the commission i found was the impact to the insecure work . and when you have growing incidences of jobs that a casual contract an insecure, that makes harassment violence in the workplace agenda, inequality would. and this government has made changes worth and women's job insecurity and job security generally in that country. michelle o'neill,
1:20 pm
the president of the trailer and council of trade unions. great, get your expertise and thoughts with us on al jazeera. thank you for joining us. michelle. integrated match there's still plenty more had few this news are including a directional don. yes. how does your gains access to the front line and east in ukraine as russian forces gather on the other side of the border. and and sport little messy is crowned the wound that best footballer for a record of the 7th time. well in less than a year, cancer will host one of the biggest events in sport, the fee for wild cup. now to get ready for their staging, a major test tournament, the fee for arab cup, which kicks off today. let's go live now to our sports presented peter, stand that he is at our special studio. yes, welcome to
1:21 pm
a home for the next 18 days here on the waterfront in tow fee for erica is on the way. would 16 nations from the arab world, competing in 6 of the stadiums which have been specially built for cup of 2022. and 2 of them are being officially opened later on tuesday. one of them is obeyed stadium and our sports correspondent andy richardson, is up there for us. and it's quite a venue andy yet really is, as you mentioned, wanted to new venues being opened up on day one of this iraq cups such a hugely important sodomites in the build up to next year. it's designed to reflect that the nomadic culture of cattle and the region, it's a detent like structure. our sites had light because not many tents can how's 60000 pounds is this one? can i swear cats are styles this sir tournaments and it's where castle will kick off the world cut next year team. it's never played football's biggest tournament before, and i think over the next few days we'll get even more of a, a sphere as to whether or not this national side really is ready to take on the
1:22 pm
world in less than 12 months on okay, that's all for now, but we will be back in the studio and with andy at the stadium later this our in our full sports bullet from at around $245.00 gmc now moving on and the caribbean island nation of barbados has become a republic ending its ties with the british monarchy sandra mason was sworn in as president there after the country removed, queen elizabeth as its head of state. barbados gained independence from britain back in 1966, but kept the system of monarchy. the country will still now be a member of the commonwealth group. of nations. our latin america editor, lucy newman, was at those 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 os you considered 16 of them to be exact. wellness of great britain,
1:23 pm
between the queen is the head of state. barbados has had a long and complete history trying to become what it says is a dependent nation. back in the 1600s when great britain turned into really the capital, crushed, major calling to become a snake slave colony on the porch. since then, it's many people such that i was on to become the truly independent nation. wanted to become in support of the 55 years ago to day money tried to push for the public staff is no longer to be a constitutional monarchy. as it was, there were a lot of my feelings. there is not, i would say compared to relationship with charles is here was received warmly by the public. but at the same time,
1:24 pm
there is the sense of pride and feeling that this time finally basis to cut in physical court with the monitor the queen and become a true independent country. well, let's not hear from renee alonzo. she is a doctoral research and caribbean studies that royal holloway university of london . she joins us now from birmingham. renee, i believe, a constitutional review commission that she recommended that barbados become republic back in 1998. so why now? i think now is a very important time because, and this is not to discredit the way that the u. k. is done for barbados over the carbon countries for that matter. but it is a time now where we need to stand on our own or to rodney wrote a book titled, how europe under developed africa to the work of development by the u. k is seen, but it wouldn't have been needed if the same you kaden, under develop it, the caribbean in the 1st place. and in terms of the relationship between barbados
1:25 pm
in the u. k. and what that looks like, we can expect the same things as before. the previous speaker spoke about how barbados has cut the umbilical cord. and so it will be a relationship where barbados can now speak for itself, instead of being spoken or it can, it can walk by itself is sort of being carried. and this relationship can and will no, no longer be autocratic externally and moving forward. it will be one where the u. k. is now forced to recognize and acknowledge the sovereignty and independence of barbados. i see renee that prince charles and his speech at that ceremony, he acknowledged the legacy of slavery in barbados, which continued for more than 2 centuries. i think. how is the u. k now regarded in barbados? well, this is a really, really interesting question because many are saying how will barbados cope without the u. k. and the truth is that what has taken place in the early hours of this
1:26 pm
morning is merely a continuation of an act which took place in 1966. on this very day, barbados became a sovereign stay an independent country. so this cannot be described as jumping in at the d pen because barbados jumped many years ago and has been swimming ever since. and so this news to day means that barbados has caught its final ties to the mark. money are called colonial bond, unwelcomed. president dame sandra sandra mason almost 400 years since the 1st ship arrived on his shore. and many we'll see this at to day as, as radical. but i see this as expected. we should expect this. what was radical was my car being ancestors who defined what rebellion and resistance and defiance means and looks like. ah, so, and that's the blood which runs through our veins. carbon people have since been described as such. and so this should be the expected step. if we are who we've always said we are. and so today barbados is carrying on that radical and
1:27 pm
rebellious spirit which is necessary for change. and my hope is, as a car, been living in britain has always been that my people on the islands emancipate themselves in every way. renee alonzo, they're a doctoral research and caribbean studies at rural holloway university of london. really great to get your thoughts on al jazeera renee, thanks so much for joining us. thank you. now, growing tensions between russia and ukraine are set to dominate amazing of nato foreign ministers and latvia. here has accused moscow of mobilizing tens of thousands of soldiers near the border. si, fi monitors say there's been a significant increase in fighting between russian back separatists and the ukrainian military. shall stratford reports now from the frontline, with the ukranian military near the village of johnnie thawing rain pitch black. this is a front line trench in easton, ukraine. we follow ukrainian army soldier who leads us along the path with mud.
1:28 pm
filming using night to vision, there are trenches like these that snake hundreds of kilometers across a conflict zone, in which more than 14000 people killed. you sound machine guns bar echoes through the blackness. so in the last 10 minutes, sounds like a lot more smooth homes are coming from the direction of don, yet had pulled. the command was taking us up to a ford observation post that is a lot closer to separatist positions. we reached the observation post with 3 soldiers stand in the cold. they are nervous until us to keep our voices down because of the enemy is close enough for sale, cumberland music newsletter. it's sporadic shooting from both sides because we can't see anything even using the night vision. little of the room use
1:29 pm
a little bit when we say shooting, we mean shooting is no man's land at no particular target, but it's important to prevent reconnaissance. teams taken advantage of the fog and rain visibility 0 camp medical. i recommend you leave this place now. the canteen is small, well stalked, 23 year old roma joined the ukrainian army 6 months ago, was trained by the u. kay's royal lancers, as part of nato's mission to defend ukraine against what it says is russian aggression, numbness, group chemistry, meets. we have a lot of things to improve on. the trainers had great combat experience, so we learnt a lot from them. i joined the army because of the injustice on woodson and our people are forgetting. there's a war going on in our country. we alleged down into one of the girls sleeping quarters, warm and quiet. soldiers grab what sleep they can before their shift starts again.
1:30 pm
