12:17 pm
activists that is for these firms and to taking action. i think that this is being because of a variety of factors, but mostly it has been the shia persistence of civil society organizations here in australia, but also very brave activists. and, you know, in mamma, running the blood money campaign, who have really spoken to woodside a recent woodside and make them aware of the serious human rights violations here. and the extent of woodside hasn't been out in a way, i think here in australia with seeing more and more energy companies be a bit more aware social losses to operate and more aware of the reputation operational impacts that can happen to the company. as well as financial impact, if i don't listen to society and to these risks that are placed by these types of operations. i would say is, you know,
12:18 pm
activists in civil society organizations really, you know, rushing to the ministers here in australia to the government's trying those channels as well as you know, directly to the company and raising this with k investors as a serious human rights violation. and, you know, i really think that would sides understand that we're coming into a future where it's not possible just to ignore shareholders and to ignore civil society organizations when they saying that it's untenable. so they are working and operating in a country that has today made it up to 1501500 of its own civilians, men, women, and children try the says the u. s. must immediately improve its trade practices with beijing or face retaliatory tariffs. and it follows the ruling by the world trade organization that china can take action on unfair us duties and caps

a decade long dispute as cars over to katrina, you who's in beijing game and eyes exactly what this means. so it seems that the w t r is saying to the u. s. sought your house out and trade fairly. that's how china seems to be reading it. i think that's right. so china's commerce ministry has come out today on thursday and said that this is a significant ruley, that safeguards the interests of chinese firms. now this dates back to a case lodged by beijing against washington back in 2012 under the previous obama administration at the time, washington had imposed parents on a number of chinese goods, including wind towers, solar panels, things like citric acid. and washington's argument was that the firms creating these goods were partially owned by state or entity government entities. and therefore, china was not abiding by market principles. and so they slept on these types on
12:20 pm
these chinese goods. now the w t o is saying that china has the right to impose $645000000.00 worth of retaliatory tariffs on the us. now there's 2 things to remember about this really number one that this amount of money, although it sounds like a lot is actually much less than what china originally asked for. asked for china originally asked for the right to impose $2400000000.00 worth of tires against washington. secondly, this amount is really peeling in comparison to the amount of tower of since imposed on chinese goods by the previous trump administration. and those tariffs have amounted to $110000000000.00 under this ongoing trade war. so it seems like this decision is really mostly symbolic. what it does is give aging extra ammunition to pressure the bite and administration going forward when it
