9:06 pm
reaches the democratic civilian path. and hopefully, the sudanese people achieve all the goals, anaheim, our correspondence, have a morgan isn't cartoon with more as the un mission here. and sudan tries to mediate between the various political parties, civil societies associations, and various actors here in sudan to try to break a political deadlock that has been in place since the military took over power and late october last year, protested once again take to the st since to take over, there have been calling for the military to return to their barracks and leave to dance politics. and this protest come before a visit is expected by senior u. s. official. the assistant secretary of state or for african affairs. and a you official and for, for the horn of africa are expected to arrive in order to, to give you a support to the you. an initiative which is hoped to break the political deadlock
9:07 pm
that has left to them without the government for more than 2 months. now, to dante's sovereignty counsel led by the military says it accepts the you and initiative to try to break the political deadlock. but protested they, they don't want to negotiate with the military. many of the organizers of these protests they will not sit down at a round table where the military present political parties, on the other hand, are divided. some say they are willing to negotiate, to try to get the country out of a deadlock while others say they also want the military going before any kind of negotiation takes place. the biggest challenge to the you and initiative that is currently under way is the issue of trust between the various parties. since the military takeover and late october, the trust, the very fragile trust that existed between the political parties and the military was broken. protesters have been met with tear gas live ammunition by security forces. the u. n. has condemned the use of force by security forces. at least 64
9:08 pm
people have been killed. 100 have been injured as they demand a complete civilian rule despite the violence that protested have been met with. they continued to organize, protest, continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military return to the barracks despite the violence that protested have been met with. they continued to organize, protest, continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military return to the barracks. the un has called on sedans, security forces to stop killing protesters. i think, as we've said in the past, and very clearly that we condemn the use of lethal force against demonstrators, whether it's in khartoum or the places people have a right to demonstrate peacefully. it's very important that we see not more sphere, that is conducive to the ongoing consultations,
9:09 pm
both in the streets and obviously inside. inside the room, we've also seen reports of disturbing incidents and hospitals and other places. ukraine's former president petro port sankoh has appeared in court to deny its reason charges. prosecutor is accused him of financing pro russian separatist than eastern ukraine. the hearing in the capsule key f, which is still underway, come shortly after poorer shenker returned home from poland. he says he's innocent of what he calls politically motivated accusations. first of ari's following developments from moscow. he did arrive earlier in the ukrainian capital, and he was greeted by a large crowd of supporters and he took some time to speak to them. he said that he has come back to ukraine to help the country faced the growing threat of russian invasion. petro per shanker also said, accused the form, the current president, his successor, alexander vladimir zalinski,
9:10 pm
rather by betraying his country. he said that, and we are now here to unite and defend ukraine. and this is a man who is still very much at the forefront of politics. in the country and he is maintaining his innocence and that these charges against him are politically motivated, the accusations against him date back to that when he was in power in 201415. he's accused of funding groups that are according to the state. now, terrorist organizations and he lost power in 2019, but he's still a member of parliament. he's the leader of opposition whose call it's your opinion solidarity. and he's one of the wealthiest men in ukraine he's estimated worth is at $1600000000.00. he's often referred to as a chocolate king because he owns a confectionary empire, as well as true tv stations in the country. so he's still very much influential man, and he's adamant that these charges against him are an attempt by the current government to try and derail attention from the economic problems facing ukraine.
9:11 pm
and he says that he will fight to the very end. petro borowski is a senior fellow at the democratic initiative foundation thinktank in ukraine. he says the prosecution has yet to show evidence to support their allegations. the timing for the public positions really is really wrong is really not the best time because of what you have right now is the threats to the real invasion. and the accusations themselves poorly prepared by the persecutors. and it's not about them blaming for us and go accusing. but of course, trading with separate is but that he approved a scheme. the trade scheme of transport in energy call from the occupied territories to the government control areas. however, still the prosecutor did not release any kind of evidence that there is a link between the president and the rational separatists,
9:12 pm
so that the case is really complex. and we're here and you're great. also, i wondered, what will be the evidence presented by the persecution? i would can only say that in this case, the president will ask you the current presence of your grand is calling the shots . and in the last years he requested the prosecutors to open up to 2000 criminal cases, all of them down drop. but right now, what we see is that these kinds of return and what the prosecutors drive to do in the board, all this, hey, look, they created, it only can boast or the popularity or sample right now. the german foreign minister says shield who everything in her power to guarantee ukraine security on a line of airball made comments during her visit to key to meet ukrainian officials . they're both pushing to revive for way peace talks with russia and france to end the conflict in the eastern zone bus region. russia has been gathering troops up
9:13 pm
the ukrainian border raising fear as if an invasion, dominey cane has more from berlin. the thing that really stood out from this meeting, at least the news conference that emerged after the meeting of the to foreign ministers was a restoration of germany's perspective. germany's support for ukraine and alina bell box, saying effectively to the russians that any further. and each further aggression would be met with some diplomatic response from her country and others saying in her opinion, that diplomacy is the only way to solve this crisis. also referring to the normandy format, saying that the full way meeting of ministers between paris he f, moscow, berlin. that's a format that they want to reinvigorate where possible. but it is worth making the point that in questions both to mrs. burbock and to her counterparts. miracle yorba when the question was about whether the german government would seek to provide
9:14 pm
some form of material support in the form of weapons perhaps. and alina beveled did not touch on last choosing, not to answer the question directly, which of course is interesting in itself, because there are those who say that if germany wants materially to support ukraine and perhaps weapons would be a way of doing it. but as a say that was not touched upon, at least not by the german foreign minister. plenty more had on the al jazeera in his hour, including another question, the u. s. for a new laws to protect voting rights on martin luther king day. but political barriers remained formidable, feeling the heat again, reports of yet another party during locked down positive pressure on britain's leader to resign. and raphael nadal is up and running at the australian open as he chases a record 21st grand slam title. ah,
9:15 pm
so martin luther king day in the united states is being marked with the march to demand more protection for voting rights. president joe biden has vowed to pass and new protection law, but he lacks support in the senate. democrats say new legislation is needed to protect the rights of ethnic minorities and low income workers from republican efforts to disenfranchise them. last week the president said, he's tired of being quiet about voting rapes. well, we're tired of being picked and says, yeah, you are 62021. when the insurrection us attacked our capital, 19 legislatures have passed 34 laws, clawing back voting rights for their citizens. and states like my home state, where new laws i should say of georgia are designed to confuse voter so i don't know where to go. al jazeera, she habitat, he attended the march and spoke to activists. daniel martin luther king junior day
9:16 pm
parade was canceled this year in washington, dc because of the pandemic. but a smaller piece walk is taking place. participants came this year to have their voices heard at a time when republican state us off the state house across the country, legislation is being introduced specifically to undermine but turn out of african american voters. the rights that as martin luther king referred doctor kings elder, some sir, said king, bled for what these marches. one is for congress, which off rule is controlled by the democratic party to pass federal voting rights legislation to protect the franchise. this march, this year is extremely important. people have literally, therefore such right? and to continue the legacy of doctor king and to continue the advocacy for voting. all rights is extremely important on without it our democracy is at the rate. we see that 3 of our democracy every single day,
9:17 pm
and if we do not advocate of own rights to one day, our democracy will fall, i think is a sad day in america because ah biden receive 80000000 volts. trump receive 70000000 volts. we sent them here as the american people to washington to pass legislation that would be in the best interest of citizens, not if they cannot get anything done beyond emergency packages such as cove it then we have a serious problem. the problem is, it's the democratic party that just doesn't seem to have the votes in congress to override congressional rules and overcome republican opposition to pass this legislation. even joe biden last week, seem pretty doubtful that this would be passed under his watch after he some se, belatedly put the full force of the presidency behind the push to get voting rights legislation passed. ironically, if bitin does fail once again to get a major piece of legislation, parcel he promised on the campaign trail,
9:18 pm
the democratic vote, the democratic of the upcoming midterm elections may be depressed. anyway. let's think about this with jenny lang who's the senior director of voting rights at the campaign legal center. she's joining us from washington, d. c. daniel lank. welcome to al jazeera. so as we're hearing the senate will take up democrat, drafted legislation this week that would implement sweeping rule revisions to voting rules. first of all, just tell me how you expect this legislation to go. we are so excited to see this legislation, which is a combination of the freedom to vote act in the john lewis, noting rights advancement being brought up to the 1st senators to take a span either or or against voting rights. this legislation is absolutely crucial. it both restores the body, hurried back to 965, the kind of landmark achievement of much of the work that i'm aging or get ad. and it also a national baseline for access to the rights boat and access the freedom to vote for all americans. so i look forward to being brought up on the floor and that will
9:19 pm
be a time when senators have to decide what side of history they want to be on. but are you concerned that it may not pass? because as we've been hearing from our reporter the number simply aren't there, you don't know yet. i where all the senators will landon, like i said, i think it's incredibly important that they be on the urge. i as far as their support, phyllis legislation, order, they're out lack of support for access to the right to vote. i am a force concerned i that it is not abundantly clear that it will pass as early as 2006 the voting rights actin reauthorization. was passed unanimously by the senate, the student used to be a bipartisan issue. ah, are this used to be a bipartisan issue? the student used to be a partisan issue, used to be a kind of universally understood value of american democracy to support freedom to vote. and to support access to the vote by our minority communities. and it's
9:20 pm
really a sad day to see where we already know that one party has entirely abandoned this legislation. and that we don't know if all senators from the democratic party will support this legislation in europe. so again, and it's going to be an important moment this week where some of us have to decide where they stand and your, your website. i'm just taking a look at it right now. you guys say it is imperative that it pass. what happens if a doesn't? what's at stake, we are sending out a precipice for our democracy and i think the americans know that americans understand that their legislatures are getting to work every day again. and the new legislative session of 2022, trying to cut back on the right to vote. and it is a moral imperative that legislators pass this legislation if they do not, we will of course, not give up. we can never give up on our democracy. and will continue to fight
9:21 pm
against will continue to fight and demand better and demand accountability from those who did not stand on the side of voting rights for this country. as you know, of course, in 2021. 19 you a states pos, 34 new laws that voting advocates say a restrict access to the ballot box. but what do you make of the response of proponents of the state laws who say, well, they're designed to a restore confidence in the election systems. it's a really cynical statement and simply not true. and in fact, it is this type of rhetoric around voter, you know, election, integrity and mystery, you know, lies that have been spread by politicians about the accuracy of our elections that have a wrote it trust in our democracy and how we need to build up trust in our democracy is to restore access, restore freedom to the right, to vote. i'm and we need to stop mind the american people about our democratic
9:22 pm
system, the dangers that we're facing, or not about the voter fraud, but rather about access to the right to vote. and so we need to focus on telling americans the truth, which is that we have tried and true systems for our elections, and that need to be improved and modern eyes to increase access. right. thank you so much. then you're lying for speaking to us from washington, d. c. thank you. now, reconnaissance aircraft from australia, new zealand have been sent to the tongue islands to survey damage from saturday's volcano eruption and soon ami. earlier flights were prevented by the tiring clause vash over the chain of islands in the south pacific telecoms cut off. there's no news on casualties so far. alexi, o'brien has more 2 days after this massive undersea eruption and vicinity, which followed toner remains counsel from the world fiber optic cable. one of the
9:23 pm
main lines of communication to the pacific island nation. now broken, we spoke to someone for families and relatives and also to ministry of furniture. so just before the communication was founded, i tell you, it was on believable and they were not able to explain to us the noise in the song. and what happened at the time is england has seen to surveillance aircraft to assess the damage, australia's also sending a military plane to help. both countries had waited for a 20000 metre high mushroom cloud of ash to lift the 4 take off clearance was given . this is a very challenging time. communications are deeply, deeply affected by the events of the volcanic eruption. it has been felt in other parts of the region. the ash is toxic and has been falling across thomas islands. everyone's being told to stay indoors if they can use an immediate need for food
9:24 pm
also for water because there is to be a cash flow that has been before 10. and as a result of you know, what i have been contaminated in most of the islands while it's great damage is reported after the erosion triggered astronomy and wave surge through tongue as a 170 islands. police reported seeing homes thrown around along the coast. the owner of one beach resort said it was completely wiped out. a remarkable thing about this or option was your head, the rapid rise in the expansion of the gas and steam bloom. and the parallel to that you had the soon army radiating outwards and also the shockwave radiating outwards, went around the entire world. miscommunication disrupted the full impact from saturday's eruption, which could be seen from space remains unclear, as does the scale of aid needed to help the token people, alexia brian,
9:25 pm
al jazeera pool revelations are emerging about the u. k. government holding parties during the corona virus lockdown. the daily mirror newspaper says, prime minister boris johnson, attended a farewell gathering for a staff member in the run up to christmas. 2020 more than a dozen events are being investigated by senior civil servants to grey. and she is reported to have question johnson leave barker has more from london as 5 days. his prime minister boys johnson was forced to stand up in parliament and apologize to him. peace and the public for attending a drink policy, the gardens of number 10 downing street. he said that he believed it was a work event. although that excuse seemed so full and flat with members of his own conservative party, the opposition, and increasingly so with the british public as well. over the past few days, we been learning more about other events that have taken place. we've let also about a, a wind fridge installed in number,
9:26 pm
tend to allow officials law to let off steam and of a regular friday night drinks event tabled into the downing street diary for all to see this isn't about whether or not boris johnson attended every single event, or at least organized every single event. it's about the kind of culture that existed in downing street with forest johnson at the helm, a culture that's a opponents of the prime minister say allow for regular and habitual rule breaking . well, there is a key inquiry underway by senior civil servants to gray, a woman nicknamed as the sleaze buster of white whole. she is overseeing the departure of some senior mpi in the past. the results of that inquiry could well influence them more and more conservative m p 's to table letters of no confidence embossed johnson if 50 for a written so 15 percent of conservative mpg write letters of no confidence that it could well force a leadership contest. some questioning though,
9:27 pm
whether boyish johnson could fallen disorder resign before that, or whether or not he will try and hunkered down and hope that all of this blows over. there is, of course the question that so he could face a challenger from within his own ranks from within the cabinet. what is clear though, for a prime minister who's made it very much a part of his job to skirt around scandal and controversy? this is one particular scandal that isn't going away overnight, and boys don't. some, sooner or later, we'll have to face the music still ahead on the news our. we look at america's homeless crisis and why it's affecting people above 50, at an alarming rate. and an icon of classical indian dance will, here are some of the many tributes being paid following the death of virgin maharaja in store at tom brady remains on track to insuperable number, a action from nfl playoffs. coming up, the jama. ah

9:30 pm
a world that so commercialized and politicized. who owns yoga? analogies in the virus is indiscriminately, yet those living in poverty are far more vulnerable to the dangers of coven 19. ollie re examines the reasons for this disparity, the social and economic inequality that surround us. how much deeper and much more problematic than we thought a doest, where the lessons learned from the global pandemic could lead to positive change because of the fix the hill. oh, all hail the locked down, expose a privilege on poverty during a crisis on a j 0. lou ah,
9:31 pm
hello again the top stories and the answers humans, alan. a suspected drove an attack targeting an oil facility in the united arab emirates has killed at least 3 workers. they were eas, blaming yelman's road, the rebels security forces, and sir john have killed weekly 7 processors, demanding an end to military rule. medics working with processed organizers, say, at least 70 demonstrators have been killed since the military coup in october. ukraine's former president petro, for a sankoh, as appeared in court in the capital key of to deny treason charges. prosecutors accuse him of financing pro russia separatists and eastern ukraine. and china's economic growth slowed at the end of last year after a strong start. the pandemic real estate troubles on the lowest birth rate in decades are being blamed for the slum brit clinic reports from hong kong. as trying to tackles its on the chrome spread, a temperature check on the health of its economy shows mixed results. 4th quarter g
9:32 pm
d p rose by 4 percent from a year ago. according to china's national bureau statistics that stronger than the government's own target, but nearly a full percentage points slower than the previous quarter. the chinese economy grew by 8 point one percent in 2021 with the help of steady industrial output as the world continue to buy china's goods for years. and actually father industrial production, experienced sustained development and high tech manufacturing and equipment manufacturing experienced fast growth. but momentum is waning and its economy last steam in the 2nd half of the year, triggered by a slow down in the real estate sector and regulatory clamp downs authorities restricting the amount of money property developers could borrow. after the fall out from the debt hit ever ground crisis, authorities will also need to address the effects of an aging population and the lowest birth rates since 949, just 7.5 births to every 1000 people. that's despite relaxing family planning
9:33 pm
measures like the one child policy. young chinese couples are increasingly choosing not to have babies because of higher living costs. other challenges on the horizon for china include supply chain problems and uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. the on the chrome varied has spread to a number of cities, prompting locked down and wrapped up restrictions. at least one case has been detected in beijing, which is gearing up to host the winter olympics in less than 3 weeks. restrictions are being stepped up to contain the spread ahead of the learn a new year holiday by so honestly on board that the winter olympics will bring in more cases. when people come from other countries, we do not know how the situation will go. i'm not worried, i think the government has been doing well. chinese officials of warning people in high risk areas including beijing, to avoid traveling during the fed period bridge clinic al jazeera hong kong. so china's birth rate has fallen to its lowest level in more than 60 years. 10 and
9:34 pm
a half 1000000 chinese babies were born last year. the national bureau statistics says that's 12 percent fewer than in 2020. it's not just a chinese phenomenon. birth rates in the u. s. or at the lowest level, and more than a century. over in germany, economist predict the workforce could shrink 5000000 by the end of the decades. and south korea is invested billions, trying to persuade couples to have children. but the population fell last year for the 1st time since records begun. and indians are having fewer children in the us population. val expected to peek at 1600000000 by 205010 years earlier than originally expected. let's speak about this. will darrow bricker, who's the chief executive officer of itself, public affairs, that's a social research organization. he's also the call center of the book mc plan at the shock of global population decline. who's joining us from toronto? welcome to al jazeera. so why should we be aligned with the decline in populations?
9:35 pm
i mean, for years we've heard that overpopulation is just a strain on the earth's resources. well, we should be worried because as you know, that great mark twain call. it was said, it's not the things that you don't know that gets you into trouble. it's the things that you know for sure that are wrong, that gets you into trouble. so what you just pointed to that malthusian approach to looking at population around the world is just simply not true. and there's more and more evidence of it every day that the global population in a fairly short period of time is going to peak and then start to decline and how low it goes. we really don't know. so what are some of the factors that are affecting these demographic trends? one of the big ones is urbanized ation and china is certainly the case that urban possession is not an effect. because what you tend to find is people in rural communities tend to have larger pre, a number of children than, than people who live in urban communities. so a high degree of urbanized ation in china. but also the other thing is a real cultural change. we're seeing this many, many countries in which women are making different decisions about their families.
9:36 pm
mainly because they want to pursue education, they want to pursue a career. and as a result of that, the children become a, an expression of self actualization, and they're pretty self actual heist after one or 2. and in china, it's increasingly after one. yeah. and if you look at china specifically, i mean there was a record dropping the birth rate in china despite that change in the government policy from one child to 2 children. but there was no real uptake. no, the reason is because people really don't want to have it for kids. i and i, you know though, the report that was, that was on just before they said it's because of cost. well that's one part of it . but it's also that people, particularly women, have decided they just want to live a different kind of life in which the, the time and effort they put into parenting and raising a family is going to be less of their, what their life experience is going to be so you say that it's too late to reverse things, not possible to get to the replacement rate anymore. so since we can't reverse it,
9:37 pm
then how do we prepare for the future? once? not so much that we can reverse it, is that nobody's figured out a way to do it. so if somebody fix up way to do it, i guess maybe there's a, there's a chance, but there's been no country in the world. it's really in the modern age figured out a way to do it. so what we really have to start getting ready for are the consequences of this change, which are mainly related to the labor force and population aging. by the year 2030, the entire global baby boom, post world war got 2nd world war baby boom is going to be 65 years of age or older . that's only 8 years away. so this is not something in the distant future. it's something right over the hood of the car and a one more for you, how to think stand in the, in the developing world or the developing world is going in the same direction just a bit more slowly. and that's been one of the things. it's really interesting in this population change and decline of fertility. it started basically in the western developed world,
9:38 pm
