3:01 pm
the jap, we discussed the ramifications. we know and see that see, you know, see the importance of having the vaccine. however, i think you're just going to different level wayne is compulsory. i expect to co workers to be immunized that we have to be careful to not let co bid. once again, mass, a lot of the social issues that are going on ah hello, it's good to happy with this, this our i'm calling bryan, this is off. he internationals world news at 11 1st for you this hour. then britain's confirmed that it sent a group of soldiers to the poem, bella roost border, and a deal with warsaw. i made an escalating stand off over migrants that already reached the level of the un security council. battle ropes is accusing poland and lithuania, refusing the crises to get extra funding from brussels. but several western members
3:02 pm
of the un security council sate bella roast is actually trying to destabilize neighboring countries and allegation that is found little traction with russia. we the current european union members of the security council condemn the orchestrated instrumentalists zation of human beings. or there is a game or for shifting blaine now or european union. remember about the reasons why these people are really, are fleeing their countries, which countries destroyed or they are countries. international organizations need to be provided with immediate and unhindered access to people there in this no problem for journalists for and jose food. go to the places where the migrants are placed. on, on the contrary, there is no excess for, and joe's for journalists volunteering to the areas where the $15000.00, according to some estimates polish guards. i see jesus here. this is some of the latest video from the migrant camp posted by the bell russian state border committee. thousands of asylum seekers are in the area as they maintain hopes of
3:03 pm
trying to gain entry into the e. u. opponent introduced a state of emergency on its eastern frontier with bell ro since september, effectively banning journalists and angio from entering the area. and thus hindering efforts to report on the crisis and provide aid instead, 15000 polish soldiers were deployed to ensure the migrants didn't get across the border. and as i said earlier, british soldiers have now been sent that to address the situation as well. moral mat, next from our london correspondent, shoddy edwards, dashti. clearly, britain on poland a very close allies. they have a long history of friendship. and so britain now extending this involvement into what is being seen as a humanitarian crisis, is an act of solidarity and support from westminster, of course part, and has been extremely vocal about what it sees as the weapon is ation of migrants by the government in better route and actually all uses an effort to destabilize
3:04 pm
the european union. now bella bruce, of course, obviously denies all of this, but britain now getting involved could be interpreted as an escalation of all of these issues. although. 8 britain is certainly not wanting it to be seen in that way. however, the ministry of defense here in the united kingdom has now announced that a small team of armed forces armed personnel have now been deployed to poland. we're not exactly sure of what small teen really means in terms of the numbers, but they all that to provide engineering support. interesting to see what exactly that engineering support may look like. we've also seen a statement from the polish defense minister as well, who says that troops have now joined to recognizance mission with their polish counterparts on the board. and now that basically means ascertaining a certain strategic operations and surveying what options that they may have trying to navigate away out of this humanitarian crisis. so it will be really interesting now to see what difference does the british government getting involved really make?
3:05 pm
well, we see anything really different happening on the board to, particularly for these migrants that will be interesting to see how the international community react to it. and crucially, whether they see it as an escalation or former british euro and people novels such that the case protecting its own interests by getting involved primarily it will be about sir bolstering of the, the board offense. i suspect that an offering guy engineering support, but equally, i think it'll send out a message that britain, i believe that has a dog in this fight. because when many of these mike and have been interviewed, they said that britain will be their final destination. and obviously we have a problem at the moment. you don't want only channel each of the argument just as bad as was going on on the polish belushi, both of janet these my going to and i want to polish collusion. boulder of many of them are going to make their way to britain. they will no doubt use the channel these as well. so britain does have
3:06 pm
a dock in this faith. but the people who are suffering at the moment are those migrants, and there needs to be people getting around to say who salting this issue out before when to really kicks in and, and the bodies will start piling high on the movement of people that we're currently seeing at the bellows, poland, borders happening elsewhere on a much larger scale. an influx of people fleeing conflicts in the middle east began that years ago. and there were now well established route to get to western europe . has just have a look at some of those now. one popular route starts from pakistan and afghanistan . they had through eastern europe before reaching italy and germany. i. in fact the u. n. says that 75000 migrants have traveled through bosnia and herzegovina since 2018 parties. maria finacialow spoke to a peacock smuggler who was offering to take migrants into northern germany. walbridge walden, gordon. i think these people illegally cross the border because that governments did not allow them to went to europe using legal methods. they tried to flee and get as quickly as possible to european countries like germany,
3:07 pm
switzerland. some of them were on the run for 3 to 4 years as soon as they crossed that border and get into germany, it's a done deal and they are free to travel anywhere within the european union. they don't get caught in germany, but they put them down an asylum center. and after a while they get permits because they flow their id cards so they can't be deported as german authority. don't know where they come from. basically we were trying to help them find a better life wise, they most likely would have been caught, put in some kind of asylum center and then deported back to their home countries. now, as soon as they cross the border and get to germany, they are free. it was scary. the 1st time i did this adrenalin fear police drone arrests, a lot of my friends got caught while transporting them. migrants were sent back and they, my friends, went to prison. most of the activities had done during the night. there are wild animals. you wait in hedges or canals until you cross over that kind of thing. we
3:08 pm
came across all kinds of migrants from algeria tune as ear, egypt. i don't know, but there were all kinds which we honestly transported from the gel gina to cause in whereas others tricked them stolen and left them on the side of the road which we stole the money from them. we got no, it was who, when you look at them, they look mostly poor and don't look like terrorists. i've become involved in this business over time for many years, having known some people wages here, a lo so it is what it is. so for transporting them, you get paid. well, while simultaneously helping someone, it's $300.00 to $500.00 euros per person. while earlier, maria joined andrew pharma to expand on that interview and also talk about the risks that my grants are prepared to take. i remember how surprised i was to 1st hear that to max over not hayes. we'll name to around 80 people across the board and but the price is between $3500.00. you were the person that we helped. he didn't tell us the truth, but i just couldn't understand why would he lie?
3:09 pm
but later on camera, he admitted what he was doing during the interview. he was trying to deliberately diminish these numbers for security reasons. but in all other aspects, facts and details he gave us, i can tell you, he was quite honest with my job in the last few years, at least with the transport migrants along with my team from bridge l. gina, where people had previously transferred them across the serbian border through improvised methods. so we pick them up and transport them obviously at night through some motor areas. sometimes 510 from 20, mostly sick is in the clergy in a region where other people then transported the mom for the password recipient. and also for smaller big boats where they would sneak in. they also sometimes travel by laurie. they get under lowering heads or tough road. they come to turkey and civil guerria, basically through the poor country, so to speak, like old pania of near. and then they go to croatia,
3:10 pm
germany from there elsewhere. from turkey, they get transported to bulgaria mobile carriers in the european union to get caught there. they get sent back to turkey because there are no asylum laws allowing them to stay there legally. so they come here because it's easier to migrate from here to the european union web covering quite a significant part of the world. and in old trends of countries, let's say, from pakistan to germany, you have to understand there are people like mac that you as a migrant have to go and pay as we heard the you and things, something like 70000 people have gone through that country in order to try to get to western europe. why is that? why is it such a popular route? first, it's the shortest possible way to get to be today. but there is another reason both and is also famous for being loyal to these kind of people because of their pat, of its past, because they still remember how does it feel to be refugee and how does it feel run away from your road motherland. the war there was over more than 25 years ago,
3:11 pm
but they still remember it. and i can say in a level of, of talking to people still sympathize with refugees and migrants. and another reason, the part from the countries past in the present, the reason the very high level of corruption and very complicated political system and a very high unemployment rate and all day is altogether push so many youngsters down the criminal business while you were filming. and pause in the you sewer managed to speak to migrant student. you who sort of going through that trying to get to western europe and heard 1st time they're experiencing motives, legal, migrant. and you want to go to europe. you have basically 2 options to go to people like macs, but that's in case you have money. i don't, the option is to do it on your own. and i mean, that's really scary. that's more dangerous. you can get caught and no one can give you any guarantee that you will ever succeed. but still many people choose this 2nd option because they don't have money. they don't have other choice. we asked max to
3:12 pm
take us on, he's normal journey from a to b. how he usually takes migraines, you know, to the equation border within the walls. and on the way there where we would just try the we saw several groups of micros and we stopped twice. and 1st group was from gonna on the left the country 4 months ago, right before the tele button came to power there. and another group was from pakistan and they were like 20 people there. i was, i was like shocked. and we stopped and talked. and 1st i was so surprised that they were not hiding in us and why. and they told us they have the official refugee paper is given to them by the boss in the for it is speaking about how loyal this country is for those people. so if they try to cross the border, they get deported. they can only be reported back to bosnia, so they don't have to do this whole journey from scratch from pakistan free. going, going to tell you the value how many you trying
3:13 pm
6 times please just invoice and then you try again. so you have been walking all the time. when did you leave bucket time? before do you need to view you left by keystone 2 years ago and you still want to go? i don't the one the one not going, but you, in bosnia filming for new documentary. yeah. tell us more about that. we were filming a documentary about one serbian guy living in serbian part of both now, who long time ago want to become a priest, but became a soldier and that because the war came to his motherland and he had to defend his family and his country basically but after the war was over, more than 25 years ago, he was still looking for it somehow. and this is how he ended up working for
3:14 pm
companies like black water and how he started traveling to places like iraq, afghanistan, g, booty, israel on, can all, all the countries, many of them in africa with so called private security missions. so it's very emotional, very actually said documentary about this person he, he explained to us that he was pushed 1st to doing that to be a soldier. but after that, he got kind of like wor, addiction, so it's a little too much for you, but hate him. but the raw, at least 2 bigger messages that i want to send. first is that wars are so bad. but the situation in postwar post conflict countries is sometimes even more dramatic and that should be addressed. and another message was, is especially important for me as a peace advocate is that there are so many wars and conflicts in morgan world that people like our main character, whose name is dushan, will hardly be laughed jobless any time soon. and that is very sad.
3:15 pm
k on to all the news now and in germany, the covert situation there is taken a bleak turn as infection rates continue to break national record with the country reporting its highest daily number of new corona virus cases. since the pandemic began, hospitals are increasingly under pressure than the authorities calling for urgent action. as peter oliver reports from berlin, grim grim figures have been coming out of germany over the last 48 hours. really, they've been pretty grim figures for the last few weeks. mark is zada, the leader of the states of bavaria. he's been expressing serious concern about the number of hospital admissions that we've had across germany, saying that the health care system is re creating to its breaking point. practiced . the fact is that the hospitals are full, they are the limits, both in terms of the workload and the emotional situation. that is why it's important that we act. now. we've also heard from yen spahn,
3:16 pm
the german health minister of interim health minister. we still don't have a new government here exactly yet. but again, spawn has said that free coven tests will be reintroduced. now they would turn away with it a little while ago. and once they were gotten rid of, we saw the numbers start to go up because it had be very easy for german to get to test. if you thought you may have any particular issues that was watered, almost every corner you go in, you get it done. is done in around 1015 minutes, they were then taken away. you could still get test done, but you had to pay for them. and we've seen numbers rise again. this isn't just a german issue though. we're also seeing situations in austria and the netherlands as well. severely restricting the freedoms of those who cannot prove if they've been vaccinated, or in some cases that they've recovered from coven 19. now, in germany, the vaccination rate is around 67 percent. that's lower considerably than the 75
3:17 pm
percent. that health experts have said, countries need to, or populations need to meet in order for the vaccination to be as successful as it can be. often the laga, even if the situation is different, because so many are vaccinated, it is still not good, especially because not enough citizens have taken advantage of the availability of the vaccine. and that's why we have to continue to be careful. while we're being told here in j need to avoid large events and limit contact, certainly all situations that would be not advised if you listen to what the, the robert cock institute of had to say about limiting the amount of contact and limiting the possibility of catching cove, it is case numbers right here in germany significantly or as peter mentioned, austria is also suffering reco daily cove cases, prompting the government that brigands special restrictions, but only for the unvaccinated. i don't see why 2 thirds should lose their freedom, because one 3rd is dithering for me to clear that there should be no log down for
3:18 pm
the vaccinated out of solidarity for the unvaccinated. so from monday they'll be tough restrictions from vaccinated. people in austria's to hardest head regions, that means they'll only be allowed to leave their homes for central reasons, such as to buy groceries to see a doctor or go to work in parliament will decide on sunday on the nation wide imposition of such measures. elsewhere around the world, other moves being taken in singapore. for example, coven patients who declined the jap will have to pay for their own medical bills, regions in germany, limiting restaurants, bars and clubs to only those who are inoculated, so have recently recovered from the disease. in greece, visitors to restaurants, state services, and banks must present vaccination certificates or negative test results. and here in russia, the city of st. petersburg is imposing mandatory vaccinations, the senior citizens. we discussed the impact of the measures with the medical and social expert would be a better way to convince people to another to protect themselves,
3:19 pm
but also protect others. we emphasize the law on handwriting and infection control measures and being sensible. no, so i am safe distance in so i just feel that the whole force compulsory and takes it to another level. it just takes away the choice. and i think that's deeply worrying the con county or the restrictions largely based on trying to prevent transmission or just trying to get the numbers up to make sure more people are vaccinated. as they say circulating society. no, we want to get the numbers off because if you get the numbers up a number of positive benefits, a crew one, the person is protected from severe illness and dying. that's one second, they're most unlikely to end up in the hospital. and then the 3rd, a immunized person is infectious for a short period of time, where we're seeing is a lot of confusion in maybe even some moral panic and hysteria. that's coming from
3:20 pm
a lot of these bubbles and communities that are sharing a concerns about the fears of not being vaccinated or the fears are being vaccinated. i'm way still vulnerable in, in our places. what like, you know, patients have visitors come in, you know, there's lots of people coming in to the hospitals and i think is quite unfair to just target those, those health care work. hm. you know, and force it in. i think a lot of it, when we not really, i mean i went to and see vaccine. you know, we can see the importance of having the vaccine. however, i think you're just going to a different level. when is compulsory insensitive places? sometimes one ruble, patients severely, clinically wonderful, etc. we've got to ask that you are safe to manage them. and therefore, if you are operating in that area, you've got to be immunized. certainly, i don't know how many my students are vaccinated or not at universities. and you don't really like sharing that information. it's going to create
3:21 pm
a scenario where these passports and these documents really have us looking one way or another at somebody and the social ramifications of this, including the immense inequalities that could come from the treatment of each other . because of these laws and whether people conform or not, i have been talking to a lot of health care workers who have been hesitant about vaccines. a lot of them from menacing homes. and i gave them of my time effort and energy, showing them how the vaccine works, what it does, what it doesn't do, how to protect them, and in the end, most of them went on to get immunized. so we need to do our homework of inform, advised educate as well. but when connie we, we saw so some of the anger from u. k. care home workers about being told by politicians to get a vaccination. but there will be people who remember back to last spring and the i was fatality numbers in u. k. cow homes who are going to be thinking,
3:22 pm
if i'm putting my relative in these care homes, i want people to be vaccinated, they're going to be worried and maybe find that behavior selfish. yes, i expect care workers to be immunized because unfortunately, this corona virus can be infectious and could kill the elderly people without your knowing on the day you were infectious, we have to be careful to not let co bid once again mass a lot of the social issues that are going on in society that have been a long time affecting people, causing deaths, causing long time ambulance weights. there are lots of issues that are underlying this. are we just like coven overtake? if you were the government instead of mandatory a covey vaccinations? what would you do to convince people to get a job is not so much about convincing people being and people it be mandatory. i think it's more about giving people the choice and given them all the information that they require and letting them choice. and
3:23 pm
a major setback at the un climate conference participants have failed to agree of final settlement and cancel the joint news conference. the remain split on whether nuclear power should be called eco friendly. germany is leading the opposition to atomic energy, calling it too expensive and inefficient to preventing climate change. but france at a group of 7 eastern european states and says that without nuclear, the block will fail at its goal to become carbon neutral by the year 2050. meanwhile, the u. k. government with a group of investors will spend an additional $400000000.00 pounds on the reactors, and the french president says his country will also build more nuclear plants to reduce dependence on energy supplies from abroad or science. professor john brickman says that the lack of a consensus among the a you states is not surprising. are you going to get all these european countries that have different interests and histories and son to agree? and when i came within the judge and the french speaking about and even on climate, that speaking again with the,
3:24 pm
with the last one is in boxes and the aging. the german position is gonna be a story because they have been opening global lands and using gas and so on to substitute for nuclear energy. they are doing everything. so cool. renewable name, the solar and wind. now using you know, cabin anything? yeah. been done. research of course we haven't done every hope of getting all tina analogy from nuclear. now jane seems to me that given the situation really you're worried about, she will do then again, nuclear actually be another lesser in that he's with no crucial agreements. being settled of the climate talks headlines about the event were dominated by some minor, but rather peculiar issues with
3:25 pm
camilla hasn't stopped talking about hearing the president break when during chat at cop $26.00 climate summit in glasgow. ah
3:26 pm
i'm right now that i've decided to go next year right on where i was in bad language in the event that i should say something inappropriate. i pledge to compensate that by saying something like a boiling planning, it wasn't enough to get you worried. sophie shevardnadze visionary this week tells us how the technology to read people's thoughts is perhaps closer to reality than you might think. that's next, only on out a ah, ah. with
3:27 pm
how was the economy working for you? we were told this is the time of the great reset and build back better. what does this mean to you? how does the green new deal play into this? it seems the richer only getting richer. but what about the rest of us? ah
3:28 pm
welcome to so because visionaries me sophie shevardnadze, mind reading is not from psychic power or a fantasy tale anymore. brain researchers are actually saying that it will be very real very soon. so will our starts cease to be our own? well, i asked john dylan haines and you're a scientist and the director of the berlin center for advanced neural imaging. right. the professor hands is really great heavy with us today. ah. so many enters into interesting things to talk about, the computers will be soon able to read our minds and decipher our thoughts into text. kind of like the voice command apps we have right now. but the thought is something so abstract. how can human decide for something like that? well, 1st of all, i'd say that i'm not so optimistic that we're going to be able to translate our thoughts into text in the very near future. and let me explain why. the reason is
3:29 pm
that all our thoughts that we have are coded, no brain activity. so those correct? so if you think about a cat or a dog or a mouse, you will have a different pattern of brain activity for every one of these thoughts. but if you want this technology to enter a day to day life, so that you, for example, city your desk, and you think about a text you want to write. um, the information is in your brain. but there is no technical way that we can read out this information every day setting. there's been a lot of hype recently about, um, say high tech companies, claiming that they're going to be able to do that in the near future. but the biggest problem hasn't been solved yet, which is how can we get at all of these details of brain activity in everyday settings. so it's not going to be like instead of file, google, where is the nearest pharmacy. when you dictate it's not gonna be like,
3:30 pm
i think glorious to next pharmacy inches reads my thing, there is not, this is not in the near future or in the media. there is a lot of confusion about these technologies. if i put you in a brain scanner, or if i have an e g, so a cap recording your electrical brain activity, i might be able to do something like that. but most technologies that are, are, are shown in this, in this field, are technologies you come take around with you on a day to day basis, the not mo bile. you considered your desk with an e g cap and kind of think about a text and this gets translated into a text like a letter into your word document. but all possible, theoretically, i mean, look at is, here's the a c we east of like as big as this room when it was invented and now. yeah, absolutely. so it's possible in principle because we know one thing from brain science, that is that every thought we have is associated with the unique signature pattern
3:31 pm
of brain activity. so if i think about one.
