12:30 am
not these for sports heroes were the weapon, the face, but now we just have to fight their mobilizing superpowers. i'm fired up and ready down doing walk down the go to tokyo store to july 19th, w o . the nurses have been on the front lines of the pandemic since the very beginning. every animal to d were working in a state of very high stress in the psychological tension has gone through the roof . alistair led many paid for their service with their lives. the world health organization estimates that 115000 nurses worldwide have died in connection with a corona virus infected is the nurses hard work being given. the
12:31 am
appreciation deserves many are still waiting for the financial applause and they are demanding better working conditions. how can it be that the heroes of depend, demik are still struggling for recognition? welcome here cove, in 1900 special. i'm chris cockburn, berlin. despite their heroic efforts, health care workers around the world are now learning that they are subject to a rather unforgiving system to explain where more than 80 doctors, nurses themselves fell victim to the corona virus. the government promised to improve working conditions, but instead with infection rates, declining thousands of health co workers have already been laid off or soon building the w. young. philip shots reports from valencia in eastern spain, louder almo. deborah has been told her services are no longer required here on the
12:32 am
cove at 900 ward. but she still has her hands full. many of her colleagues at the valencia clinic are gone in the surrounding region alone. hundreds of nurses were let go over night. many of her co workers were informed that they've been laid off in a text message. and if a, if the people i think it's shocking to find out your employment has been terminated like this movie or somebody like this. it shows 0 respect for the people who gave everything during the pandemic because they could call up at the time they were urgently needed for the system to keep running model. let me go out of now, it seems as if they are just disposable from all, but they will try to get out of a standing ovation for health workers, the heroes of the pandemic. when spain was particularly hard hit by corona virus, in march 2020 thousands of nurses were hired at short notice. many fell ill. some even died of the virus. but now that covert 900 numbers are falling across the
12:33 am
country. these nurses are no longer needed. more than 1000 nurses have been laid off here and the volunteer region in the past few weeks, the loan for thousands more professional future uncertain. within a few months, they seem to have gone from heroes of damage to redundancy personnel. the layoffs have led to furious protests here. most of those who have been sacked are afraid to speak to us on camera. only one person is willing to speak anonymously by telephone . he tells us that he and his colleagues feel abandoned. when the virus happened, we were short of everything, we needed to fight it. we were brutally overloaded with work. we couldn't even take care of our own health, and that had extreme effects in our private and family life. now it all seems like exploitation to me. so in recent years, spain has made massive cuts to its public health system. more than
12:34 am
a 3rd of medical stuff only have short term contracts, and many clinics have been privatized. during the pandemic, the government promised improvements, but instead the situation is worse and, and get those in charge, haven't changed their tune. and mostly, we are currently making great efforts to create more permanent positions and to ensure that fewer people have to work in unsafe conditions. we hope that the situation will improve and 2022. i mean, i know that got, i mean, then the doors for nurse laura almost ever and her fired colleagues, there could be some good news, at least for now, many of them will be reinstated over the summer to fill in for others who have gone on vacation. of good morning this with howard captain. he is the ceo of the international council of nurses. i c n. and he joins me from geneva in switzerland . welcome back to our show, howard 0, respectful, the people who gave everything during the pandemic as one nurse called the sacking
12:35 am
of health care workers in the report. justine, do you agree? i think this is a shameful way to treat nurses and health care work is these are the people who have put themselves ahead of everybody else who go to work. knowing that there's a greater risk that they might become infected, haven't had the personal protective equipment that they need have often separated themselves from their family. so as not to present a risk to them who have stepped into the shoes of relatives. they are not disposable. they are indispensable, they are the heart of our health care systems, and we're seeing around the world nurses who are angry at this lack of recognition and respects and increasing strikes in european africa and then the pacific region as well. on that note, i have coworkers do have
12:36 am
a huge leverage particularly now in the panoramic. if protests grew more nurses went on strike, that would create enormous pressure for their cause, wouldn't it? we went into this pandemic $6000000.00 nurses, short a globally. we've got aging nursing workforce in many countries. we've got nurses who have left because to burn out because of anxiety. we don't know the impacts of long copays. the last thing we can afford to do is to lose our nurses, our hospitals, all clinics, without stuff, without nurses, that just empty buildings. it's the people that matter and we should be investing in them and protecting them, not if and then it gets at a different stage in different parts of the world. do you see situations improving for co workers in areas with high infection rates because of the lessons learned earlier elsewhere? we are seeing many places where nurses are taking on increasing leadership
12:37 am
positions there at the forefront of the public health messages organizing systems of care as, as well. and the situation is improving. but we are also seeing areas where the doris is research and, and there is a huge issue at the moment with the in equity of access to vaccines for nurses and health care workers. there are nurses and health work is in some parts of the world still waiting to be vaccinated, whilst younger people are being jobs in other countries. we all know we're not going to win this race against the virus on our own. as nations, it is a global race and we need to see much more sharing and solidarity and corporation around the world. and then i see in a report published earlier this year and says, studies across regions suggest that the pin demick has exaggerated the stress and anxiety felt by nurses and other health. co workers. what do these people suffer
12:38 am
from? in particular, we have seen huge physical and psychological impacts on nursing and health care stuff. physical exhaustion, insomnia, burn out and stress, but also the emotional burden of being away from your family looking after people, more people who are seriously ill, who are fearful. more people who are dying on top of that, we have also seen examples of discrimination and violence against nurses, people who may be ignorant or fearful. but you know, nurses who've not been able to renew their tendency because their landlord is worried that they're spreading the far as nurses having difficulty accessing child care for their children as well. and nurses being subject to the covey denies who was saying this whole thing is a hoax. we call this a mass traumatized ation of the nursing workforce. and that's why we need to be
12:39 am
focusing on the recovery of on this is not health care workforce right now. howard can of the international council of nurses. thank you for your thoughts and cute getting the right jab has for many people been the most promising way to protect themselves against a severe corona virus infection. vaccines have been the subject of many of your questions. here's one and our science correspondent, they're going paul, every country has a different strategy to prioritize vaccines. what does the science say about how to best allocate them? all? we're still in the middle of the biggest vaccine drive in history. so evaluating the moving data on this topic is really a pretty tall order. to be honest, i don't even know if looking back in the years to come. if will be able to say
12:40 am
anything with certainty about whether a countries might have prioritized the right groups for vaccine allocation in the right order. that's because demographics are so different in different countries that, that making blanket statements about what works best can, i think, provides at best just rough guidelines. there are just too many variables. the big problem is that allocating back scenes means making choices that are at odds with each other. the most obvious of those choices is whether to cut down on the death and suffering caused by the disease as quickly as possible by vaccinating the most vulnerable 1st or to instead try to vaccinate those who are most exposed so. so those who will catch the disease most often, and hence,
12:41 am
really dr. further transmission countries with aging populations, like many here in europe, went for the 1st option. they decided to prioritize the elderly group that's most at risk if they contract over 19. and that choice seems to be working at preventing death and suffering. a british health care authority, for instance, has estimated that the campaign there, which focused on getting elderly the shots 1st, that it's have over 30000 hospitalizations and, and 10000 lives so far. but that's also left a large segment of the population, younger people, unvaccinated for many months. and of course, as the group that's most regularly exposed, they're now fueling a new outbreak there. so what's the best prioritization strategy?
12:42 am
i don't really know if you can put it that way. i'd say that there are just strategies with different outcomes. mm. and that's actually far more checkout are covered 900 section on the w dot com for now . thanks for watching you next time. ah. people in trucks, engine, i was trying to see the city center more and more refugees are being turned away. family to be crated and treated people. extreme dreams, 200 people around the world. more than 300000000 people are speaking with huge. why?

12:45 am
traditional person carpet with 969 was a pivotal year in terms of the counterculture movement in the u. s. and the summer of love that saw woodstock is certainly well documented. but what many people don't know about is the harlem cultural festival, a music extravaganza that took place that same summer and marked a turning point in black life in america. i'm mere quest love thompson, the drummer and co leader of the hip hop group. the roots has combined compiled previously unknown footage in the documentary films summer of sol. so let's hear his take on this extraordinary project. after the silky voice of nina symbol prairie black. yeah. are you really, really the beautiful voices, but the way moving and
12:46 am
my name is amir request. love thompson. i'm a musician and a music lover. and we're here to celebrate in talk of my directory or they view summer of sol. nobody ever heard of them just as the phone. nobody would believe that have the beautiful people i was off. i got admitted. i've never heard of the cultural festival, my producers, robert and joseph to tell and david dinner scheme. they showed me their footage. this is real. i was no, i didn't expect crowds. something very important. i wasn't sure about the moral women. 69 is just full of social change
12:47 am
energy. you have the black panthers there, the young lords setting up shop. the last poets are born a year earlier. there's as much happening on stage musically as there is happening socially off stage. and we could ignore that. we needed now we have responsibilities and not only get this film out there, but we should also show the people, the social and political circumstances with poverty. how the government treats its citizens, how the police treated citizens, the idea of protesting and letting your voice be in her staff. wow, well, what a film and joining me to talk about it now is my colleague, adrian kennedy, an amazing cultural event. there. adrian was started like nina simone. smokey robinson. stevie wonder,
12:48 am
and it's being resurrected 52 years after the fact. i guess the big question is, why have we not heard about this? but yes, that's why some people say it's a miracle that this material has survived over the years. but of course it is also a big scandal that it didn't get more attention or more public airing earlier. now, the full title of the documentary is some of sole or when the revolution could not be televised. so this is also a theme that runs through the movie tv better and how to sing direct the recordings of the performances at the 6 free shows that comprise the holland. cultural festival in 9690 subsequently trying to sell the material. but there was little interest the material languished in the basement for decades. a credit. first of all, of course, it had to be pains taking the restored frame by frame over several months. ok
12:49 am
then obviously was a big job and the results that we see there are, it's just spectacular material. we've got a glimpse of some incredible performance of here's a look at one more and this is the last night. and the pip, the in the wonderful fear in that so you can really get from this material. what if it's really just isn't a simple documentation of the event? is it now it's over also a film about the political and social upheaval of the time the festival took place just one year after the murder of civil rights activists. dr. martin luther king
12:50 am
now the director question, love so obligation to restore black history that had been raised. he wants to feel what he calls a cultural voice and says that back then, this could have been as defining for black america as woodstock was full white america. if it had been picked up, he says the film shows the flowering of black consciousness and the black is beautiful cultural movement. and now 50 years later that the movie has finally been pieced together from this treasure trove of material. he is hopeful that the film can still have its moments and in the context of black lives matters can now inspire a new generation of activists who are continuing to struggle for a quality. and we can see that on hulu, i think, and it's starting in cinemas on july 2nd, the documentary summer of sold by quest love, and his directorial debut. thanks very much for bringing us that wonderful story. adrian kennedy. could you look now into the darkest period of german history and
12:51 am
just as the nazis forced jewish people to wear a yellow star of david, they also force anyone labeled as gay in the prison camps to wear an inverted pink triangle in the wake of pride month and exhibition at the show, a memorial in paris puts the nazi regime persecution of gays and lesbians into a european contracts. and both bears witness to the varying faith of l. g. b, t, q. people at the time paragraph 175 of the german criminal code introduced in 1871 condemned sexual relations between men. the nazis amended it to be even more repressive and use it to keep records on some 100000 homosexuals. 50000 of them were sentenced either to be education, prison, or forced labor between 501-5000 were sent to concentration camps. but unlike the persecution of jews, this repression was not systematic. the nazis believed homosexuality could be cured
12:52 am
. except the homosexual was seen as someone who could harm the image of the great germany. they were seen as parasites because it was considered that they could not reproduce. but the idea remained supported by certain medical theories at the time that they could possibly be re educated. guess at the same time, the nazi cult, masculinity used homo or roddick aesthetics and propaganda. and st. lou, head of the essay or storm battalion was gay, which was then used to feign him after he was murdered in person. the anti gay agenda ended the openness that had blossomed during the weimar republic and even targeted lesbians who had been exempt from prosecution under paragraph 175. the parents show memorial is dedicated to jewish history. so what was its motivation for focusing on nazi persecution of homosexuals?
12:53 am
sucrose. what's this exhibition says is that on the one hand talks about a subject that has not been talked about much, it must be said. secondly, it allows us to better understand nazi ideology, nephew, learn about the nazi persecution of gays and lesbians, was not recognized until the 1900 seventy's and eighty's. and the pink triangle once used to designate homosexual prison camp inmates became a symbol of liberation. oh, well, to finish on a lighter no british sculptor, debbie lawson has a refreshing take on animals, natural ability to camouflage working in the space between 2 and 3 dimensions. her carpet creature installations are now sought after for exhibition. the artworks that have you rubbing your eyes an amazing at times how to identify. they sometimes leap out into the room. depending on the perspective in
12:54 am
the studio in london's hackney district, carpets get a new list of life as wild animal. british artist, debbie lawson began creating lifestyle. it's carpet sculptures, some 10 years ago. start with the patio in the middle, which is like a focal point. pull your eye in, and then i carry on the patterns of on the legs in the quite a sort of symmetrical way and merge the feet into the carpet so that you kind of almost can't see where it's coming out. then i'm left with lots of bits that still needs to be covered and i can just use virtually any sort of little scraps of the same carpet to cover those fits up on your i just pulled it all together. computing sculpture can take months. 7 lawson usually works and several pieces, similar tediously, almost all of the animals are commissioned. she needs 2 to 3 fully identical carpets for one school. so i started by using real person carpets, but they were usually seconds or damaged ones already,
12:55 am
but i don't really want to cut up the work of somebody else. so i'm using copies all the time. now. in a 1st step, debbie creates a framework for the school teacher from chicken where she then fixes it with several letters of credit until the model becomes firm. finally, she has carpet to onto the model using hot pieces and then put the material into shape. i'm quite a quiet, shy, reserved person and that's sort of i think that's how i operate. i once become a flash and disguised and disappearance background. i think that might have been one of the reasons behind making fast because the bed of the talking for me, i can hide in the background and enjoy sort of the conversation that it's happening with people that are looking at her school for between 13024000 year old, depending on size, efforts involved and carpet quality. debbie had her artistic breakthrough in 2018
12:56 am
or to meet her tall, red bear sculpture displayed at london's 2018 royal academy. some exhibition caused quite a stir. everyone seemed to be quite wow by the bare and it became a bit of a celebrity. everyone really love animals and everyone likes to be up close to something that they've never might not seen in the wild be fine gardening, both inspiring and relaxing. she also enjoyed making miniature versions of her giant sculptures. strange how you can also just a block of materials. you can kind of create some sort of character in the thing. i'm quite happy to sort of put these creatures out and then have a life of their own and, and i enjoy watching them from the the curtain. debbie losses.
12:57 am
carpet creatures are a huge success with funds around the globe. ah, i'm thinking one of those bears a be great company here in the studio. it's all have to get on. not right away. well, that's all for now. so until we meet again, thanks very much for watching. do stay safe and ah, into the conflict with tim sebastian, america, secretary of state anthony lincoln was in crane last week. his offer was a comfort and support for the country after washington masking huge numbers close to. is laura, my guess this week is the foreign minister denito for labor. what does he get out of the visit? and what was asked to do conflict zone. in 30 minutes on the w to the point and strong opinion, clear positions,
