7:05 pm
quite as experiencing since independence. i was 30 years ago. i should immediately was, seems to shoot to kill order it. the danger is that this order will escalate the situation lead even further. not as we've heard over 40 people have been killed so far, allison's injured, and so a shoot to kill it. what is the worst thing that would happen at this time? troops police should be trying to de escalate the situation rather than fuel. more escalation was cut down on human rights watch is right before this violence broke out sadly, very much so human. a 16 is a authoritarian country with a terribly human rights record. it's a country to which is try to gain global standing politically economically. it wants to remember the o s t o e d c, d was on the human rights council at the moment of the un. it tries to, you have a polished international reputation, but in reality,

freedom of expression within reassembly of both short and under foot in kazakhstan . unfortunately, 3 of the media to the no opposition passes is never been in a free election since 9 since the early 1990. so indeed, it's a serious human rights abuses. so in that sense, the protest with spock this, the series of violence and demonstrations in the last 4 days, and not surprising to us. unfortunately, it's a tricky one for countries outside the region though, isn't it? we have russia as a near neighbor leading this, this military alliance to help put down what is clearly a violent unrest and we have the, the western world on the right, the world outside. so looking on the saying, well let's, let's call for restrains and you don't really want to go it with that. that seems to be no way of doing anything about it beyond just saying, can we all, please come down? i mean want you to understand that the process is still going on in some parts of
7:07 pm
the country and those are basic pro, just by ordinary people against fuel. high price rises, human rights abuses. and so, and that was a legitimate concerns. and the government should be listening to those. so the message from the you, from the us, from other countries, as i can tell, should be learned, should be listening, that they should be expecting the rights of people to protest and listening to their concern. so of course there's been significant violence. we don't know who has been perpetrating the violence, particularly in a mighty, the commercial center with them. and those people should always be brought to justice. i mean, 18 policemen have been killed as extremely serious. but that doesn't mean that the, the issues at stake for those protesting and continuing to protest and not important. and there should be, there should be heard by the government. thank you so much for joining us. you're here, williamson and apologize for the course of the sound there. a german leaders, the timing, the rules for people are entering restaurants who haven't had their booster shots. it's in response to rising. omicron infections. national and state leaders sell the

7:09 pm
despite new rules now being put in place. and that is touching a sensitive area of public life restaurants. if you want to go to restaurant in the near future here in germany, you will have to either prove that you've recovered or vaccinated and have a negative test that you've been vaccinated twice and have a negative test. or that you've received 3 sorts, including the booster, so that that's the only way to continue life as a relative, the normal in german restaurants. and also quarantine measures have been somewhat the period you have to spend in quarantine has been shortened to 10 days or 7 days if you can test free and that somehow does, doesn't it? but that's because there's an overarching fear that critical infrastructure. hospitals will be overwhelmed not by intensive care, patients necessarily, but just patients in general and that the staffing will be down also because they
7:10 pm
are positive. so clearly, germany bracing for a lot was while at the same time, vowing that there will be $30000000.00 more booster shots by the end of the month with question marks. whether germany can actually make that because it's below just about 1000000 shots a day. and a continuing debate whether vaccinations will become mandatory, we expect discussion there to start and parliament relatively soon. thank you for that data breach to political editor, mckayla kristen. let's hear some more developments in the pandemic global karone of ours cases of top 300000000. according to johns hopkins university in the united states, while it took more than a year to reach the 1st 100 millions of 3rd 100, i came in daily 5 months. brittany, sending troops into some london hospitals to cover for medical staff, off sick with coping 19 and the austrian chancellor. com, they hammer,

7:13 pm
budget. of course, one of the oscar for his career and his acting ability though he could do serious and touching. he could also have the audience cracking up with laughter. like he did in that oscar winning role in lilies of the field were saying, seeing there, he played a jack of all trades to helps a group of german nuns out in the arizona desert. and he doesn't actually want to work. he wants to drink, but eventually he build the church for them for free because they can't pay him. and this is a really typical role versus the party. he always played the good guy kind of the st and films like in the heat of the night. he's a detective from philadelphia who works together with a racist sheriff in mississippi to solve a murder. and he does it with grace. his characters respond to hatred, even the racism with cool headed resolve and really just trying to appeal people. one of my favorite films and but why always such saintly roles?
7:14 pm
well, he was absolutely typecast. you have to say that and it did get him in trouble later with activists as the civil rights movement, heated up who called him an uncle. tom said he was just trying to please the white man at the same time that he really knew what his options were. hollywood at that time was not going to give him a romantic lee that certainly, and he wasn't about to play the bad guy because he wanted to promote positive, a positive image for black people. and he wasn't going to get particularly complex characters either. so he was rather method in his choice of roles, but even, even though that's the case, they would still wear a huge step forward. and he himself wrote that every time he made a movie, she felt like she was representing millions upon millions of people who otherwise didn't have any representation. thank you that every limits on the life and times of sydney potty and the city of your catherine back
