7:02 am
and into the night. explosions reverberated through gaza city as israel intensified its onslaught against hamas. as the conflict escalates hour by hour gazans are fleeing their homes with whatever they can carry some have come to this school run by the un in search of a safe place. whatever none of the law we were planning to leave during the night but drones and jets kept bombing us at dawn we started moving and ran to the schools our children were screaming they wanted to get away when we woke up we found everything behind us destroyed there's nothing left in the end of the album lot of. and many israelis too are living in fear. just north of gaza the city of ashkelon has been hit repeatedly by hamas rockets. it has been very
7:03 am
stressful but we are following the government's instructions we have faith in the army and our creator. gaza is not israel's only front in an intensifying conflict in the west bank tensions new highs as palestinians exchanged rocks and gunfire with israeli soldiers for the 1st time this week palestinians died in numbers on the streets of the territory. the united states has sent a diplomat to try and broker a cease fire between israel and hamas. but as flames and fighting spread across the holy land peace seems like a distant prospect. let's get more now from michael fritz in the executive director of the media lon an american news agency covering the middle east mr fritz and we see civilian suffering on both sides and no signs as yet of deescalation what's going to break this cycle of violence unfortunately the cycles are repetitive in

the follow patterns it's a nice image of the warfare so you have what it one point was a ragtag bunch of people firing on a organized army now is in itself a pretty sophisticated bunch and the warfare gets more gruesome and costly as the technology grows and now we're seeing drones and the like which is the of course changing the syrian backed up considerably this can stop as quickly as it begins with a diplomatic solution and the nations of the world are trying to get together now to get both sides to consider that what they've done already is enough for this round and tragically they're talking about this round not about. arguably the u.s. is the only one with leverage she do you see it that why and if so is it doing enough with that leverage. well i've spoken to
7:05 am
a number of israelis who don't think so they believe that the united states should be the honest broker should be considered the honest broker not withstanding any issues that arose in the previous administration they feel the u.s. has been a little slow on the uptake in that they could do more however having said that the administration wants to take a more global approach it's important for many in the american government to see that the allies in europe in particular play along with everybody else and become important to the ultimate outcome of what's going to happen and perhaps that can be more of peace and less of a time out from the battle. from where we are now it seems difficult but can you imagine a peace process yeah that's how it is hard to imagine but you know the several countries that made peace or normalization with israel did so at
7:06 am
great risk to themselves in their own neighborhoods and they certainly surprised many by the fact that they have done it and we're not hearing any negativity or not really much negativity from them now in the 1st test under fire so if we can stretch that point maybe we have something we can see as a glimmer of hope for the future. michael for it's an all of the maybe a lot thank you very much pleasure to be with you. a vigil against anti semitism has been held in and in western germany earlier this week demonstrators shouted anti jewish slogans outside the city's synagogue but on friday supporters rallied in solidarity with jewish communities police estimate that around 300 people took part a spokesman for chancellor angela merkel said germany will not tolerate anti semitic protests while peaceful protests against israeli policies were allowed some

7:10 am
from the pipes and that's why we rely on the city's water truck it comes by once a week another truck is from a private company that the neighborhood resident. paid for out of their own pockets well that's. according to chile's current constitution water is private property miranda shows us a new pipe made by a private water supplier it was developed for the avocado farmers not the residents . constitution favors agriculture and this pipeline starts at one of the few remaining above ground springs and it was originally intended to provide water to locals. the fact that water is private property has led to dried up rivers next to lush green avocado plantations exporters their water in huge basins and expand their off a cottage grove every year. on situation must finally

right the wrongs have capitalism and distribute water fairly especially during the current drought and climate crisis. 50 percent of the seats in the constitutional convention are reserved for women that's why miranda has high hopes for her campaign. activists like me have to push harder to get heard it's important that we put pressure on the old political elite now. the outcome of the vote will play a key role in shaping chile's new constitution. china has landed. in its increasingly ambitious space program. for at least a few before it officially begins exploring the red planet the. images from mars but before it does here's the story of how it got there and what the probe is hoping to find. the unmanned spacecraft. towards mars

world's last remaining absolute monarchy. in our street debate you get to money discusses with young ugandans the challenges we face in politics. and the beneath it is known as the cradle of buddha we'll find out what it means for young people. first reported takes us to southern africa to s. what teenie but country formally known as swaziland it is ruled by king mswati the 3rd. but right now of the you with have started questioning the absolute monarchy and the massive power that the king has in the low felt region of teeny bit to fight over sugar cane is brewing after toiling it for 20 years local farmers were promised ownership of this land but they are likely to lose it to king mswati the 3rd and his family in defiance of the royal opposition politician will gain used to melanie and the supporters staged
7:32 am
a march sparking clashes with police their frustration with the moniker he reflects a growing attitude among the country's youth. and. it's. torture. and even some. young people like similar army are angry that the king apparently doesn't care about the law and why should he the constitution puts him above it since 1906 king mswati has ruled it's watching an absolute monarchy. the king likes to portray a different image of himself and his country this latest tourism advert features picturesque landscapes and a benevolent waving to his happy subjects. acting prime minister.
7:33 am
was not elected by the people chosen by the king he maintains that system allows its citizens to speak their minds freely so the. system doesn't. stop. if you look at the constitution. and the people who have their own organizations in this country and as far as i know. i'm never. on paper this is correct but the reality tells a different story veteran politician on a show where he spent 18 months in prison and is currently an alpha male. he is due to face the high court on charges of treason off to publicly condemning the royal family for corruption and misconduct he says those who call it a democracy are mistaken the revision towards.
7:34 am
the news i ses. just recently 2 weeks out of a plane in thing occasions the police detained people. people assembled to bed piers for you and yet we continue to call ourself a democratic kind no we can't we cannot we cannot remain that there must be change in this. song isn't a load in his sentiment while at least 60 percent of swazis live below the poverty line king mswati splashes out on the rolls royces and b.m.w. use among the student wing of the national liberal tory congress emotions fly high when talking politics and current challenges facing the country. who are voting for that constitution and say that the king should be above the new
7:35 am
rico. employed by d o d 2 d 2 do today call them in to stop you find old people like 65 years of india's they are working but these young politicians don't want to do away with them on a key entirely the king remains an important cultural figure what they really want is for the king to add here to the laws like everyone else and put real power in the hands of the people that is the main reason with doing those protests where demonstration throughout the country in 2 places. to remind the people that this country was stolen from. these farmers may have to wait a long time before they receive the land that was promised to them but progress is slowly being made. it's not just what teenie where the political situation has been tense in the last few
7:36 am
months and where a rule and has been in power for decades. uganda does not have a king but a president who has been in office for 35 years now since the elections earlier this year demonstrators have taken to the streets and questioned long term presidential and it was 7 years reelection in it came and he was in the capital kampala to discuss why young ugandans are reluctant to get involved in politics. the 77 percent is back in kampala and this time we're here to find out why it is that young people seem very not interested when it comes to politics or at least that's how it appears in the foreground and we're trying to find out why is it their choice or is it a choice that was made for them based on the system well to begin this conversation i'm going to start with mr gill but is from generation 7 as you can see and he's
7:37 am
actually rallying young people to support my 7 for me to rally young people to support prison with 7 it's because of the ideology that he has it's because of the experience ok so that's your argument i'm just going to turn around and decide because i'm sure that people who do not agree with you maybe you want to jump in their mind in a mission field and no one blocks very many young people i can tell you i'm in love and i shouldn't platform we had so many i kind of dense and most of them could not afford that nomination fees that i don't look to many young people out then you can give us an idea of how much it costs there and leave you in for to contest as an m.p. a huge financial restriction when it comes to young people participating most as let's come to you because i know the 2 had a point earlier i think but young people are actually participating in politics we now have to discuss the quality of participation for example. in the november 18th and 19th demonstration it was young people who were on the streets binding the
7:38 am
tires yeah so i think that young people are actually participating but it is not meaningful participation much handa you have something. say to me i want to cross over to the point of brutality why would anyone show up to participate in a process where people are being shot at by being kidnapped by being drawn face i can use that word if i weren't being held incommunicado why would anyone who is saying go to put spit in such a space let in fact let's ask the people who did it why would anyone sane put themselves in such a scenario 6 month time that you know sometimes the young people who are we keep surprising because of someone speaks about violence see taking drones and all that i think all here people participated in politics and i don't know if in of dentists face to be kidnapped i don't know because these opposition people. were you could not but you're here but hold on just for just for clarification are we suggesting that only people who participate in the opposition of the ones who are terrorized we think that it's happening all around us think that that's not happening that's
7:39 am
what they're trying to paint trying to paint maybe i know you said that you had experienced something of that nature can you share with us before the wrist i was advised by my chairperson of c one that i should not come back home tonight because they're looking for me so i told them but why on which account i told me because i was putting one marriage barrier that people power barrett they came and told me i have issues to answer at the police and i of course i went with them and when i went with them they didn't take me to police they took me to someone's home literally and they were asking me so many questions and they're asking me to withdraw from the race all right gilbert you're disagreeing with this i can hear you head shaking from the back what are you disagreeing with i'm disagreeing with the issue of brutality the ara's but how can you tell me is it that's her that's my experience it's unfortunate that she went through that but i want to make this known to each and every one whoever is aristide you know a that a criminal or you a suspect i think it's unfair for you to see that maria's experience doesn't count
7:40 am
because she's told us that just by. wearing a red berry she was hunted for does this not duction it is artist people are arrested we saw them on come at us robot in policeman we saw them on camera shooting people including the members of parliament you predicted you want police to just look at it like that ok i think all right just have a cause that you're the one who is shouting falls through what are you what are you saying is false in uganda as a state if you go for campaigns you can be aristide you can be heat you can be a gust so the issue is now not about money i had limited but also these points where they saved many people that had money lost these people what hated and if it were possible even the president his office would be shut down as by now but why is the prison still there because of what i can't describe to myself because i may live here right now and i'm taken through the drone you understand and what i want
7:41 am
to bring to the tip onto the wall is that you're going to we just do this joint up politics and these are mafia politics that we're having a few people here to the prison so i think constitutes on the country into power that's what i think all right mr causa here has made some very serious to clary sions and you've said that it's not about money it's just about being hated that's why people are not voted in and while it he was raising his hand to try and get my attention did you want to add to that point said to brutality we have just seen policemen group but in general this segment policemen it was on the committee so i think that one alone makes the young people. who come to be interested into running for for political offices there's less one last one was about the kidnap which my brother was saying you can divide it as he said is that you know all over search abducting good citizen so my thinking is that we need to come out and
7:42 am
calling them without those acts because those acts are the acts that actually compel young people form. but just getting active in the politics all right thank you very much for your thoughts because he has mentioned bill but specifically let me allow him to respond i think what is important for us as citizens of this country as young people is to engage ourselves in economically something that is going to generate money because you're not going to tell an easy everybody would have a job killer but government has a wheel i have to tell you these fantastic and finally i'm going to end with you moses i hope you have a killer point of course i do recall solution is very important initially you would actually use the 1st step in nation building and we can do it we can yes i can get solved the economy clearly financially the sky's the limit for young people our time is now thank you i really like that point and so that actually brings us to the conclusion of this debate i have to say what passionate debate the ugandans did not disappoint and you did not disappoint for showing up thank you for watching.
7:43 am
we asked the ugandan government to comment on the issues brought up in the debate jacob a ruler who was the chairperson of the national youth council got back to us saying and i quote my view is that the participation of young people should be guided by the intentions of long term good governance and formation of synergies that are generational in our pursuit of political influence and space nevertheless it became clear and i debate that people in uganda are afraid of getting into politics because they may be harassed by authorities well opposition leader will be why and knows all about that he ran against with 70 in this year's election and faced all kinds of issues but intimidation has not stopped but the wind from speaking out in fact giving a voice to the voiceless is what he has been doing even back in the days when he
7:44 am
was just a musician and not yet politician now he's using both his platforms as an artist and a politician to get his message across let's listen in to his current songs. we . detected from. your current. employer. well the man you just heard bobby wian is joining me live from uganda where we wind welcome to the 77 percent. thank you for having me in the seventy's and soon to be here and we're happy to have you so the last few weeks must have been very intense for you what has happened since the election results were announced maybe
7:45 am
the question should have been how is it being for you the people and they have been apparently has been such a challenge since the election which turned out to be the most frightening glitch. and they have great prosecutors. hungry. young people young men and women supporting the people who are moving in the national. movement and by people i mean have been abducted by the government many have been martyred. others have been. you know totally ripped me the feeling is that in rape and others i was heartened i seen on a couple others about to be in custody so you have been have i will promise also say that the most the operation the most the resistance and that i've turned up to be more resistant and more assertive in modeling for their rights in my name for
7:46 am
