5:02 am
bangkok where there has been violence between police and protesters already, people are on the streets but the rallies has not gained momentum in the past few days and there is an olive branch and she says she is open to talks. >> translator: i insist on opening every avenue to find the solution and i'm open for negotiations. police officers will not use violence but it's necessary for us to protect the government buildings because all the government buildings are used to serve 60 million ties. >> reporter: protesters have been marching to the metropolitan police headquarters which say violence on sunday. government complexes, the main protest compound where the rally leader has been giving speeches and this is government's house. the prime minister's office which is heavily fortified to stop protesters from breaking in. and al jazeera's scott is there
5:03 am
and, scott, you said all options are open but what the protesters are demanding is not constitutional. where does that leave the protesters? >> exactly. that is the big question. you have this stalemate if you will. prime minister saying she is the democratically elected head of the nation and he was democratically elected and the opposition and antigovernment protesters want them to resign and want to appoint a people's council they say, the leader of the antiprotest movement and wants to appoint a people's council and they are saying that is unconstitutional and not how this nation was set up to be. so that is where we have a main sticking point before they can sit down and properly negotiate. they sat down under the auspices of the army observing on sunday evening. there was no progress in negotiation as the
5:04 am
antigovernment protest leader came out and said there was no negotiation and the army was there as the unbiased participants move this to so some of agreement but we are no where close to that. >> reporter: they called for a general strike and people went back to work and large numbers the street are we seeing slowing down of this movement? >> we have seen a fair movement here and we are close to government houses on the main roadway they leads there. it is start and stop if you will. for several hours there was intense fighting and what we have not seen and the police used rubber bullets and we are at a medical facility where 100 doctors have been helping out for the last 8 days of the main protests going on and in the last three days they have seen 1,000 patients and as you can imagine most of those were related to tear gas that we heard they had one treatment today for a fractured hand from one of the rubber bullets being
5:05 am
fired and 100 doctors around the clock to help protesters when they are injured from the confrontation. it sounds like on the loudspeakers in the background that things are kicking up and how the protesters and the police communicate with each other, massive loudspeakers across the barricade and police were trying to get them out because of the escalation because there was some fuel bombs and rocks being thrown at the police and the police started firing rubber bullets and the police told them to move back and it dipped for a bit but things may be kicking up now as the sun is setting, sue. >> that is the latest from bangkok. and al jazeera's veronica has spoken to the prime minister and you can watch the interview on talk to al jazeera, it is at 1430 gms in 4 1/2 hours. now the u.s. president is in
5:06 am
japan, the first stop on a three-nation tour of east asia and biden will meet the prime minister and talking about the disputed islands in the east china sea as they rethink about the forces and we are in japan. >> they look like an army and act like an army but not a real army and they are from japan self-defense exercise earlier this year. under japan constitution they can only fire to defend themselves. with japan's larger neighbor china asserting itself international questions are asked if japan should rethink the role of its armed forces. and china's declaration this week of an air defense zone over the east china sea is making that discussion all the more urgent.
5:07 am
japan's prime minister has been pushing nps all year to change the constitution. long-term defense guidelines will be introduced in december and a national security council will meet for the first time after joe biden's visit. some hope his visit will herald a new stage in japan's relationship with the u.s. especially since china's announcement of the air defense zone. >> translator: the united states took action against the behavior and could make our relationship closer and might help the kind of relationship that is fit for true allies. >> reporter: the timing of the visit really could not have come at a more opportune for tokyo and forcing a transition in the power, balance since world war
5:08 am
ii. >> translator: they did not challenge status quo but in the resent years the military has grown in power and i think that is why china is challenging the order and the seas are such examples. >> reporter: and it's how to play their hand as china gives us mixed singles over the air defense zone and chinese media said on friday it was the main target of the new zone but defense ministers also stated it's neither a no fly zone nor territorial air space and they would lay money on what china is taking and no one is taking any bets, stephanie with al jazeera. >> reporter: at least four people have been killed in a suicide bombing in afghanistan, it was detonated outside a police headquarters in a
5:09 am
providence south of kabul and 17 people were injured in the attack. 10 people have been killed in the last two days in the city of tripoli and they have taken sides in the war in neighboring syria and people have been putting up barricades to protect their homes from snipers. and a rebel group says it sees an army base where an up rising began 2 1/2 years ago and released a statement on sunday night saying it took a weapons depo on the city and took the weapons and ammunitions and military gear from the base. to egypt says they are one step closer to holding elections and it will allow the army to try civilians in military courts and let it decide who the defense minister will be for the next eight years and the political parties based on religion, that is bad news for the deposed muslim brotherhood and go to a
5:10 am
referendum next year and elections will take place in six months and we are in cairo and basically we are hearing it will bolster the military's hand and the parties, are those the highlights? >> those are the highlights and there was one additional change that took place last night before the draft was finalized. originally the plan was to have the constitution put to referendum and parliamentary elections and they may hold both elections at the same time. for many this kind of change gives him a chance to run for the presidency, win it before the parliamentary elections but this is not the only controversy
5:11 am
provision. many people especially from the opposition and followers of the muslim brotherhood are in a way dismissing the whole constitution. they are also angry that many of the provisions they have put in place in the past in the constitution they amended were actually scrapped. this constitution is more emphasis that it's civil and more emphasis on people's freedoms and rights but many also feel that there is more power to the military which could mean less democracy. >> when the u.s. secretary of state john kerry was in cairo it was recognizing human rights more than democratic and what is the reaction to the way the constitution has now been shaped? >> we have already heard from americans regarding a new floor that was put in place and
5:12 am
condemned it and said it had serious flaws and officials said the same thing and they call to the government to amendment. other provisions here that may find problematic. the u.s. is walking a delicate balance and doesn't want to interfere too much but also need to put enough pressure because many of the people expect them to do so when things are dipped to human rights violations and especially when it comes to the military getting more power. one thing we have to make clear is this referendum will be put to a vote and only if it's approved by the people the other steps and parliamentary elections and presidential elections will take place. the turn out and percentage of egyptians that will turn out and vote on it will be very crucial for the government not only to legitimize the political process and roadmap it put forward but to legitimize what it did in july which was to oust the
5:13 am
islamic president morsi and bring the military in a more forceful way. >> the latest from cairo. and it was responsible for thousands of birth defects around the world but some victims have now been compensated, that story coming up. plus, something to remember for later in the news hour, a report on the world's memory championships. and joe will be here with all the sport later as oklahoma's inspire his side for the 7th straight victory. ♪ antigovernment demonstrations are continuing nin, ukraine and taken over by protesters and a,000 blocked the government and protesters are demanding the

government for refusing to sign a trade deal with the european union and we are live and demonstrators called for national general strike, david, can they really demand that kind of thing? is there a great public opinion behind them, across the country or is the country divided? >> well, yes, we know the country of 46 million people is divided. the east is very much russian speaking and pro-moscow, the west is very much pro-europe. but i just bring you up to date with some of the latest developments here. there were roundtable discussions with the parliamentary speaker with the opposition parties and what has come out of that is that the opposition have called for the cabinet to be dissolved by parliament tomorrow. now, the president's party has majority in that parliament and unlikely to see his cabinet
5:15 am
being dissolved just when he is about to go on a trip to china and to moscow. but the blockade of independent square which you see behind me is continuing. they are reenforcing defenses in the streets around here with what were the old barricades used by the police to keep them out of independent square. as you say they are essentially sort of bringing the government to a halt by surrounding all of the government buildings and taking over most of the buildings around the square here including the city hall and trade union offices which are the main headquarters and giving a briefing there pretty soon. so the standoff is continuing, the two sides as far apart as ever and the crowds behind me calling for speeches calling for the resignation of the president and his whole government. >> reporter: you say the two sides are far apart as ever. i believe the parliamentary speaker called for them to start talks. has there been reaction to that
5:16 am
call? >> we will get that reaction pretty shortly. but as i say the only thing that came out of that meeting was a call from the opposition for the cabinet to be dissolved but on the national, the general strike that you mentioned, there has been a response to that. three regions in the west of ukraine have responded to that general strike call. the first three to declare and the course which is on the border with poland and european cities and to be expected but in the coming days we will see the general strike roll toward the east as well and include even kiev but kiev is active apart from the fact that nobody can get in the center because it's blocked. >> live from kia. the prime minister arrived in

bejing and he wants to improve ties and he is on a three-day visit at the capitol and we will meet the president and other senior officials. >> some in europe and elsewhere see the world changing and want to shut china off behind a bamboo trade barriers and britain wants to tear them down. as i just said the way forward for britain and china is more openness and dialog, delivering mutual benefits for people here and back at home. and open britain is the ideal partner for an opening china. >> reporter: in the philippines boxing champion many has been visiting survivors of the typhoon and the death toll is 5,670. the world champion delivered aid

and handed out toys and they packed a sports complex to watch him on tv to defeat the american. >> translator: i have been through hardship and experience what they are experiencing now. that is why i'm here to join them, to give aid and encouragement. >> reporter: bangladesh is one of the poorest country with some of the lowest wages and in the garment industry it has been reported that it's dangerous and there is a densely populated slum in the capitol that is home to 200 leather tannerys. >> of all the difficult, dangerous jobs they do to survive these men just might have the worst. they are tannery workers who labor day in and day out engulfed by the nauseating stench of toxic chemicals and
5:19 am
rotting animal flesh. he is 14 but looks older. >> there are scars on my hands and legs, these injuries are never ending. >> reporter: he earned about $2 a day. the water they are wading in without protective clothing is laced with arsenic and chromium sulfate and make the leather soft and suple and cause sores and cancer. >> cancer of the nose and the urinary bladder cancer. >> reporter: there are more than 200 tannerys in this part of doca employing 30,000 people and leather was worth billions last year. >> this is a product used worldwide for luxury boots but for the workers who are making

5:21 am
al jazeera and doca. >> it rings a crucial part of the bangladesh economy and worth $1 billion each year. the industry employees more than 16,000 workers. and leather is exported to u.s., the uk, italy, french, russia and japan. customers admit that such poor labor practices exist many will still buy leather goods. >> translator: we don't know that much about bangladesh but we know they use child labor and they work in dangerous health conditions. >> translator: i always check the label before i buy something. i'm at a point where i don't trust imported goods. >> translator: i never thought about it. i i don't know what my jacket is made of. as long as it doesn't itch i don't worry about it. >> reporter: the first time the palestinian movement decided to cancel a celebration marking the
5:22 am
founding, holding the event this year would be inappropriate and we will explain. >> hamas is in no mood to celebrate, the 26th anniversary of the founding is coming up, and the group said the time and conditions are not right. >> translator: gaza is going through difficult circumstances and power cuts and fuel shortages and tough seas and made a brave decision to cancel a celebration and serve the poor palestinians to reduce their suffering. >> reporter: many people in gaza say it was the right decision. >> translator: i think it's a positive step that one of the political parties here started to consider the people and their issues. >> translator: i hope all organizations not just one of them give that money to the people who badly need it. you can't imagine how tired they are. >> reporter: it's the first time that hamas cancelled the
5:23 am
celebration since it took control of the gaza strip six years ago after winning general elections. but israel and western and some powers refuse to recognize the hamas victory and gaza's problems became worse. two wars with israel and the blockade made life even more difficult for more than 1 1/2 million people. in resent days raw sewage flooded the city. gaza has relied on panels like this to smuggling in food and fuel and israel and egypt say weapons and fighters were also coming across. the interim government in egypt destroyed many tunnels and that means there is a shortage of almost everything, even human dignity. i'm with al jazeera. >> reporter: in 2005 israeli evacuated three small settlements it built illegally
5:24 am
in the west bank and we report on how palestinians are being blocked from accessing their land. >> this is where he used to be, it cause an illegal jewish settlement in the west bank and in september the court issued a rare order to return the land to the original palestinian owners, 8 years after the settlement was dismantled but it didn't last and they wiped out palestinian ownership of the place. the land is legally theirs the leaders don't come here and they just clear the roads that the settlers have blocked. >> translator: we are around 40 landowners here and waiting for the palestinian authority to start projects in the area so we can do the same of the lands and we will make use of the lands but we need protection. >> reporter: israel evacuated
5:25 am
when it withdrew from the gaza strip in 2005 and it was a forced evacuation. now the municipality is demanding the israeli government demolish what is left of the settlement especially the watertank and roads that settlers have built because some settlers still come back here despite an israeli soup court decision banning them from the area. the jewish settlers believe it belongs to them and want to prevent palestine from making use of it so they burned the trees they planted and continue to maintain a presence in the area. >> translator: we don't want to keep any excuse for them to return. no wall, no tree, no watertank, we don't want to keep those because they use those as a reason to return to the land. >> reporter: but the lawyers who fought for years to win this case say it's the israeli government and the army that should prevent the settlers from coming back. >> translator: the israeli
5:26 am
government is responsible for implementing the court decision but we know the israeli army is not interested in implementing decisions the same way it p procrastinated in returning the land. >> reporter: if it takes this long in a tiny home like this what chance do they have of clearing much larger jewish settlements and regaining the land they stay was stolen from them, al jazeera and boka and the occupied west bank. now weather with richard. >> thanks very much sue. the weather across the mediterranean and the weather can be particularly nasty and there is a big area of clear skies towards the north but down across the mediterranean cloud and significant rainfall totals. all the way from parts of greece

♪ the top stories on al jazeera, antigovernment protesters are back on the streets of bangkok demanding the resignation of the
5:30 am
prime minister. an address to the nation and she says she will stay as long as the majority of people are behind her. in egypt a draft constitution is approved by a committee nominated by the interim government and contains controversial points including the military to try civilians and go to a referendum next year. the ukraine opposition called for the cabinet to be dissolved and follows a meeting between a government representative and protest leaders and earlier a thousand demonstrators blocked half of the government's headquarters. and let's get more on our top stories thailand and to force out the prime minister and she is a former thai foreign minister who served from 2008-2011. he is with the democracy party, many of whom support the protest and he joins me live from bangkok. sir, thank you very much for joining us. first, i just want to talk to
5:31 am
you a little bit about what they said today. she said she cannot meet the protester demands because they are not within the constitution so basically we are in a position of stalemate and they say she must go and she says she wants to go to a people's council and she says we can't do that. >> well, i think the fact that she has rejected the verdicts of the constitutional court and retext the constitution itself, then it is an illegitimate in the city and no longer the rationale or right to be in power so i think the demands of the protesters are quite valid in the sense the government is no longer a legitimate one. >> should they look to proper channels? she survived a no confidence vote but there will be elections, would it not be better to take the violence off the street and go through a proper channel rather than trying to force her from office?
5:32 am
>> the proper channel just like in the case of egypt and indonesia and so on the ruling party has been turned into an authoritative one and majority rule has become what the economy says democracy and majority and it has been happening for the past two years so there was no proper debate inside the parliament. the majority real and minority will not be observed. it's a raw power inside the parliament so in that sense parliamentary politics has failed and the politics has innovatively and sadly moved on to the streets. >> reporter: just on that question of majority, there has been a call for a strike but an awful lot of people ignored the call and gone to work anyway, how much do the protesters really represent the majority of ties?
5:33 am
>> well, i think when the failure inside of parliament, i think off the parliamentary politics and demands of the people are quite valid. they need transparency, accountability, a fight against corruption practices, abuses of powers and so on. and i think the government for the past two years has failed completely in the governance of the country because the government is spreading her time and practically all the time and all the efforts in trying to bring back her brother, criminal back to thailand scott free through draft and amnesty law and the people thought this has gone beyond the limit of decency and you cannot justify the return of a criminal personality and using majority rule in the
5:34 am
parliamentary past. >> reporter: what do you think the role of the military will be? have you had discussions with the military and do you think that are sympathetic with the protesters? >> i think they are sympathetic but i think they are burned their fingers too many times with the past and after it, the coup pasts democracy was not fully returned and i think they have failed in the governance and afraid to come out again. >> would you call on the military to take the side of the protesters? >> no, they should not come out. let this be the people's revolution against a majority government. let that work it out by itself. >> reporter: thank you very much on al jazeera and he is
