12:03 am
coup and legitimize it saying when cited violence we have to avoid that political truck. the announcement follows public displays of outrage against the coup with people banging pots and pans over night and young gone. calls for civil disobedience are gaining momentum i am other than i really want to join the protests banging pots until they were bent out of shape it was the only thing we were able to do at the moment we want the international community to be aware of the situation because in terms of power we can't fight back against the military. doctors and nurses in at least 3 towns have gone on strike to oppose the coup an act of defiance with potentially dangerous consequences in a country with one of southeast asia's highest coronavirus steps towards but they're still reluctance to protest openly some analysts say what happens over the next week how people react could define the country's political future for years to
12:04 am
come right now i go you know it's. a planning something big you know i think you know my guess is that we go from a boss idea this happens in the next or 5 days our it will just move. here protests carry high risks for years myanmar was ruled by the military dissidents were silenced and opponents arrested on wednesday morning the government run newspaper published a warning urging people to not oppose the coup me on mars elected leader and head of the national league for democracy on science which he won a landslide victory in elections in november following a large loss of party's favor by the military who declared the election fraudulent now the head of the army is running the country. amid mounting international criticism people are now wondering whether their country's brief experience of
12:05 am
democracy has perhaps come to an end cocktail of this with a young al-jazeera. we can now speak to a doctor who's joined me in ma civil disobedience movement but we're not naming him for his own safety thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us now this campaign of civil disobedience applies to medics and health volunteers and other doctors can you tell us exactly what that means have you completely stopped with your work. you know movement tries to stop the whole system and even if it can't we want people to be aware that we didn't bow down to the military because we are trying to receive it and just as. the military is intimidated by this all our movement are just like occupy movements and awards you know all of us leadership. the movement is to centralized
12:06 am
unspirited by the doctors and nurses. but also there are there also teaches students and engineers and the many other citizens are these are joining the movement so it's getting bigger and stronger day by day as they are can you give us a sense of how extensive the movement is right now roughly how many people are involved you mentioned teaches that we know doctors are involved i. think they'd be all i moved and it's because i mean because they're. still made clear there are thousands of people. walking in the movement. thousands of people in many different cities yes all across the country there are many teachers and doctors and students call across to countries are involved in the
12:07 am
movement it is interesting that doctors are involved in this do you think it is sustainable for doctors to hold this position in the middle of a pandemic. it pink it is it is not unethical to commit to those so the movement because we take it like a person it's a kind of like over human duty it's the duty of a citizen to resist the and just this. week we can let the other doctors know fire the some programs like that to to help us if the patients cannot go to the hospital they can't see the other gender pettishness which are not civil doctors this is how we are working right now
12:08 am
so would you i think ok how would you describe the atmosphere in the country right now. i think of plenty of the people feeling hopeless and helpless because of this because the government warning of the election represents the vast majority of the people. we think we wrong we were all the future is clear what's clear but. it didn't take all of us. them with a tree took back all of the peace and prosperity of the democracy of the country. as you say the military is a very powerful institution in the country where does that leave your civil disobedience movement because it doesn't likely to it's unlikely to progress into street protests isn't it. it's all you all are the people who
12:09 am
most when we are all walk in our life. if situations change. or stories i would there's no one to do jail a sub. to their politicians and no one has to train for this move and if someone gets arrested for this are things. people were well beyond the streets. in the future well thank you very much is it difficult circumstances and i appreciate you taking the time to speak to the doctor who is part of the country's civil disobedience movement joining us of course we're not identifying him or his location for his own safety. now the white house says addressing the crimean mar is a priority for president joe biden this is the latest reaction has been from
12:10 am
washington we're continuing to review sanction our sanctions authorities and other options it is certainly a priority. also an international reaction united nations saying those charges against unsung suchi severely compromise me and my democracy will continue to call for her immediate release for the president's immediate release and all others who have been detained by the military in the last few days i think the charges filed against her are just compound the undermining of. the rule of law in myanmar and the democratic the democratic process with thousands of people have protested outside japan's foreign affairs ministry demanding the government take a tough stance against the military coup in me and my. pleasure. the union of myanmar citizen association which organized the rally says japan should
12:11 am
not recognize the military regime their representatives handed over statement calling on tokyo to use all of its political diplomatic and economic power to restore me and my civilian government. and in thailand me i'm a national gathered outside the united nations building in the capital bangkok crowd chanted we don't want the military many way flags from me and was national league for democracy party. hold on hold right now there's not much the people of myanmar can do they all start home therefore we're all here to let the whole world know that we're not happy with what's happened while the army is done seizing power it's a covert democracy but we want the whole world to ny we want the world's police health costs. and watching al-jazeera live from london much more still ahead on the news hour we're looking at recent developments on the mexico's border 12 police officers are arrested for the murder of a group of migrants refusing to give up palestinians start rebuilding their homes

in the occupied west bank just hours after israel demolished them. in pakistan have a chance to break a jenks that lasted more than 15 years we'll have the latest cricket coming up later in sport. a what if you look at the kovacs game now of course that was established to ensure that poor countries get equal access to corona virus vaccines and it's unveiled its distribution plans now for the next few months to give us an idea of how it's all going to work the scheme is backed by the global vaccine alliance a well health organization and the u.n. children's fund is aiming to purchase $2000000000.00 doses by the end of 2021 but it now says it secured $330000000.00 doses to be distributed in the 1st half of this year these will mostly be the oxford astra zeneca vaccine that would cover
12:13 am
around 3.3 percent of the total populations in the $145.00 participating countries but kovacs wants to ensure that countries vaccinate at least 20 percent of their populations pfizer biotech has pledged up to $40000000.00 doses in the coming months china has announced a plan to provide $10000000.00 coronavirus vaccine doses and then india's. serum institute has also agreed to supply 1100000000 doses of the astra zeneca another vax vaccines to be delivered over a number of he is. today we are pleased to announce the conclusion of a long term supply agreement with the serum institute of india for the coke 19 vaccines to access to vaccine products through technology transfer from astra zeneca and nova facts unicef along with our procurement partners including hope will have access to up to $1100000000.00 doses of vaccines for around
12:14 am
$100.00 countries for approximately $3.00 a dose for the low end lower middle income country. listeriosis last us is a molecular varnishes from the family university joins us on skype from newcastle upon tyne can i start by getting your assessment of these distribution plans by kovacs isn't is it sufficient enough to to meet the demands of the pandemic for poor countries incrementally short of a miracle and we should be all very very shocked if this number of attacks since this quickly from the discovery of a new processor dr were so destructive this is entirely on precedents of the fact of the world is coming together to try and supply this boxer to as many nations as possible it's a huge milestone in our history can we have enough of it we want more we want as
12:15 am
much as becoming a want to know it's not now and yesterday but. it's a huge huge achievement that we were able to say this is the record to help will it happen. this is a very interesting period in time a lot of destruction to stop and think sinks might not go as some to suppose that i could be something as simple as a bit of rope but looked at it all the time to fuck to them not to exaggerate it was reckless files. for the boxes and so we have a huge way to go from where the structure a child's perspective i suppose high income countries of made as a range of bilateral deals with that scene manufacture is that was expected to happen but then how worried should we be about supplies have poorer nations running short because of that. i think it's a very interesting and difficult question for drug approach it by saying that every
12:16 am
time there's a spot between countries about who gets bought they should do a look around them and consider that it was far more difficult position on every single those that's argued over should actually go to those notions is that. right but there's nothing to compel extra if there's nothing to actually compel wealthier countries from buying up extra supplies and then donating the excess to poorer countries particularly when there is just so much uncertainty how the pandemic can plan out. it is my understanding that at least come to the house such a plot in mind. over order to form what you need as a country to make supplies available to do over the merchants are not so great saved but we have this kovacs alarms that brings the death of the mind far sure it is the developed nations the. many tourists in the world that support our health
12:17 am
care for the developed world that seeks to address this child and so it's all it's about a concerted effort here and it's not about looking also for us about looking at the world for us and trying to solve our problem all together thanks very much they're a small sauce joining in stephanie cost upon tyne thanks you're very welcome well the kodak facility is planning on delivering more than $35000000.00 doses of the astra zeneca vaccine to the caribbean and latin america by the middle of the year chile has become one of the countries in the region to launch a vaccination program it's just started inoculating old adults and essential workers with the sign of ak vaccine you see in yuma now latin america editor went to a vaccination center in santiago. although it doesn't look like it i'm actually standing on a football pitch in a large soccer stadium in santiago in one of the working class neighborhoods which has been turned into a clinic as you can see people are being vaccinated on the 1st day of a mass inoculation campaign which begins with people 90 years and older let me tell
12:18 am
you there are a lot of them people are coming in wheelchairs they're coming with care they're using canes some of them sprinting in and sprinting out very healthy indeed there are a lot of people of that age and so of course they're beginning with the most vulnerable age group and then work work their way down this is a plan that the chilean government implemented and promised the people that it would happen as early as possible and actually it is the chile is now the 1st latin american country to start mass inoculation until now that had only been the evacuation of. medical personnel nurses and medical students but this is actually quite something and the same thing is happening all over the country simultaneously 5000000 people will have been in ocular aided by the end of february and more will do the same in march and in the following months. meanwhile pakistan has started
12:19 am
vaccinating its frontline health workers with plans to inoculate most of its high risk population by the end of the year the country is administering 500000 doses of the chinese made sign of fine vaccine and all the 1000000 doses are expected to be delivered by the end of the month august on his record of more than half a 1000000 kovan 19 cases there's been limited testing which means the actual number is likely to be higher or the world health organization lists lebanon as being in the highest risk stages of the coronavirus pandemic a 3rd of all cases identified there have been detected in just the past month and even though there's been a lot down in place the soaring number of cases has left the country desperately short of medical supplies zain harder reports. the calls are endless every single day of the week at whatever time day or night melissa runs a non-governmental organization that has redirected its resources to providing oxygen supply to coronavirus patients at home there is what doctors call an
12:20 am
uncontrolled pandemic in lebanon and. i had a gentleman call me at 1130 at night on saturday crying on the phone because of his father and i had to you know explain to him i physically do not have a machine right now please with patients with oxygen leading to more appeals on social media for help we have a lot of patients is even. less and less patients are being admitted to hospital because this is. the red cross has been at the front line of this battle. volunteers have transported more than 5000 patients to hospitals in the past few weeks 4 times more than last year and there are many more on a waiting list. 75 percent big number of critical patients so they can get.
12:21 am
some hospitals are using shipping containers to treat patients in the parking lot while others have suspended non emergency treatment. health experts registered one of the world's worst. memory for the size of its population which is close to $7000000.00 including one and a half 1000000. more than 100000 cases were detected in the past months that's one 3rd of all cases identified in the past year. many countries have dealt with beds shortages and the need to prioritize care but lebanon's health sector was already weak from years of neglect and a collapsing economy a high number of cases for sure let. all that is forth so that we have to look at it with the plot that it's. would we admit to it and move it over to. give a patient more than living if we continue like i think forward that it's. a 3 week 24 hour curfew has brought numbers down but it's not enough and the daily
12:22 am
worry of not being able to find a place in hospital or get access to oxygen supplies hasn't gone away. beirut in all the developments inspectors from the world health organization have visited the virology institute and who hung the chinese city where the crown of virus was 1st identified the team is investigating the origins of coke at 19 in the past 6 days they've conducted interviews with people from research institutes hospitals and a market linked to the and michelle outbreak katrina you in beijing has more on the team's mission at the institute. they were there for a few hours today since that morning there is intense interest in this site when not sure exactly what kind of information what access they've been given there but of course this is a very important lab it's the focus point of much controversy because the trump administration when it wasn't power allege that corvette 19 in fact leaked from
12:23 am
this lab now we haven't seen any evidence of that but it is true that this lab has the highest level of biosecurity in china and inside a number of dangerous pathogens were being studied including coronaviruses that had been transmitted from animals this is a very politicized mission china's very worried about the results and how we look to the international community everything in this mission since they began their field work has been highly stage managed since many countries have pointed blame at china accusing them of not being transparent now china's foreign ministry have rejected those criticisms and indeed members of the team who have spoken to the media since the field work has began say that the trip is going quite positively they're happy with what they've seen so far they've been taken to a number of sites including some of the 1st hospitals which housed some of those 1st corinna virus patients they've also seen the meat and seafood market where the 1st cluster of coven 1000 was identified and they said that they are seeing doctor
12:24 am
and information previously on revealed and that they do feel that they are making some headway in their investigations to finding out the origin of this pandemic 12 police officers have been arrested and charged in mexico in connection with the deaths of 19 people close to the border with the u.s. the charred bodies were found last week in the back of 2 burned out trucks at least 2 of them are quite a modern migrants trying to reach the u.s. john heilemann reports from mexico city and a warning that you might find some of the images in his report disturbing. you know . that's. going to go a bombshell in mexico tuesday night the killing and burning of 19 people among them guatemalan migrants was perpetrated by police said authorities entirely pistol. at least 12 members of the state police took part in the events of the 22nd of january this theory gained traction because the crime scene was altered there's an absence of shells and bullets the police also contradicted themselves in their
12:25 am
report of the crime and in interviews with officers. the suspects are now under arrest that won't be much of a consolation to bring the parents back in guatemala he suspected her brother was among the victims even before the news of the alleged police involvement broke the law. the truth is that everyone was there from our community they all went on that trip said the relatives have told us that they died and that's how we knew that he was one of them but. this keeps happening not just the kidnapping killing an explosion of central american migrants heading through mexico most notoriously when 72 were massacred in 2010 again entirely post but also the involvement of mit's completes in atrocities. in 2014 and get it over they helped to gang disappear 43 students. experts say to
12:26 am
a lack of transparency and basic working conditions for local police forces 1st of all ok it's terrible in many cases in most cases will lead us now sources cura to get health care which is great for in the current situation and the other thing is that many times the basic human rights are not being respected so at the 1st abusers in this whole chain of human rights abuses are the commanders that pray on their own order to do their bidding so much carry out violent acts for them criminal acts for them what you need to. first it's great transparency must hold commanders accountable. but this administration hasn't focused on police reform instead they've created a super security force called the national guard rather than concentrating on the existing problems in the country's many police forces critics say that's like putting a band-aid on a knife wound and welcome to the well not just makes concern but those traveling through the country have been reminded once again that they can't fully trust those

12:34 am
a suggestion that school shootings were fake and advocating violence against democrats and senior congress a minute liz cheney has been accused of disloyalty from 1900 ph former president donald trump well alan fisher is at the white house and joins us now alan what what is happening today tell us about the discussions that have been underway. well those meetings ongoing these were planned after the impeachment forward it's interesting because this is the republican party essentially making a decision on its future ties to donald trump 1st of all because you've got liz cheney who is number 3 in the republican hierarchy in the house she voted for impeachment remember that vote was very much of what of clinton's there was no party which means republicans were telling their members which way to vote solicitude he decided that donald trump very much was responsible for what happened at the capital in january the 6th and had to be impeached she was one of 10 republicans who did that but because of her leadership position there's a number in the republican caucus who said she had to be removed because she didn't
12:35 am
represent them anymore among those pushing for her removal include ohio congressman jim jordan very much a donald trump favorite very much adored trump fun he of course has been speaking out against cancel culture over the last couple of weeks and just in the last couple of hours gave an interview where he said cancel culture is the most dangerous thing facing america at the moment 19 could not be reached for comment but it's interesting that someone who so much against council culture wants to cancel someone from the republican leadership the other one is the one that really gathered much more publicity and that is marjorie taylor green she was elected in 2020 but a lot of what she said before she was elected. no essentially tarnishing the republican party among the things that you have a line that school shootings were fake and that some democratic leaders should be assassinated one of the most recent ones to come to attention was the fact that she claimed the wildfires in california last summer were caused by space lasers or in
12:36 am
the by a jewish banking family and fired from motor space you can see why that concerns republicans that they are going to be tarnished with this sort of q. and on conspiracy theory nonsense that they're going to be seen as extremists and so the question is whether or not to remove her from the 2 committees that they've assigned her to the what he did that. by doing this you're essentially saying that anything you said before you became a congress member of congress could be held against you but there are others who believe that they can't be forced into this by the democrats because the democrats are pushing for it no here's the flipside of that if the republicans don't make a move to do anything kevin mccarthy who's the leader of the republicans in the house hasn't given an indication that he is ready to take action against marjorie taylor green or liz cheney but particularly marjorie taylor green if they do not remove far committee assignments from her then the democrats are going to place
12:37 am
a motion on the floor on thursday to do exactly that and if all democrats vote in favor then she will be removed from those positions but the demo republicans feel that they're being forced into taking action by the democrats that's not a position they like but they also realize the long term damage that these crazy conspiracy theories. are doing to the party here is we're all ties into donald trump 1st of all is cheney voted against donald trump that's seen as disloyal to the man who was still the leader of the republican party at the time and the 2nd point is with marjorie taylor green she's got donald trump support she said she spoke to him down in monologue the weekend he very much said that he was in favor of what she was doing and he. course hasn't distanced himself from any of the cuban or nonsense that has been going around so this is the republican party essentially looking into the face of donald trump and deciding if they're taking a couple of steps away or whether or not they continue to embrace him and his
12:38 am
support because a lot of the cuban own supporters very much donald trump supporters on the republican party doesn't want to alienate them ahead of the 2022 midterm elections yes or no we're already talking about the 2022 midterm elections but the republicans hope that they can win the house when the democrats to do that they think they need dalton's support that is why they're reluctant to take any action against either of particular against marjorie green and perhaps more keen to take action against those cheney who stood up against donald trump. important occasions for their public can party that thank you very much alan fischer at the white house on out the u.s. is saying that it's disappointed after the u.n. highest court ruled that it will hear iran's case to overturn u.s. sanctions a majority of a panel of 16 judges ruled that the international court of justice does have jurisdiction in the dispute the u.s. doesn't recognize the court's authority iranian foreign minister mohammad javad zarif described it as a victory for his nation. israel has demolished
