in corporate america post tens of millions of dollars into the c.b.c. and questions have long been raised as to how that so affected the policy positions of c.b.c. members from weakening financial regulations on the banks accused of predatory lending to black communities to voting for the militarization of the police or the expansion of the us is wars abroad the congressional black caucus said it was unable to provide us with a representative to interview. the polls show that fear of trump will not suffice to get voters to the ballot box candidates offering genuine alternatives will in two thousand and seven the c.b.c. didn't even induce barack obama prefer hillary clinton now it faces the same questions that led to that decision what does the c.b.c. stand for and does it comprehend the changes taking place in the united states she ever time c.l. jazeera washington. the resilient far right presidential candidate gyra both

north a useless and come to studio but that's not what happened argentina's government gives cash handouts through a card scheme to help poor families says on this occasion the card was withheld by the shop owner and those who went to the supermarket wanted it back. what happened is that you leave your card at the supermarket because we can only buy the basics so they kicked it as a guarantee to make sure we pay the problem is we never know what we have being charged and he keeps on mocking the prices up. and that's a big problem when he defects those who can barely make enough to survive indigenous communities in northern argentina have historically been neglected by the state they're suffering from high levels of undernourishment lack of basic services this is the place that members of this community get their water from and that's why in times of economic crisis very desperate need of help. we went to talk
1:15 pm
to the owner of the shop where the shooting happened he denied any wrongdoing. but within the region it is having repercussions on the prices because of the devaluation so it's confusing for us too so we try to catch up to those who came here wanted to rob us and had no excuse. but the communities insist that is not the case the economic crisis is affecting the poor in every possible way and while the government tries to contain the impact for some it is already too late. science pena argentina now a new report by the overseas development institute warns the world is not on track to end extreme poverty by twenty thirty that target was set by world leaders in twenty fifteen the world bank defines extreme poverty as living on less than one dollar ninety per person per day it affects eight hundred million people today that number is expected to high by twenty thirty so the report says extreme poverty will

government statistics show that poverty levels have increased since twenty eleven with fourteen million south africans now living in extreme poverty surviving on less than a dollar a day thirty million south africans live in poverty that's just over half the population and most of those affected are children while the government launched a national development plan to eradicate poverty by twenty thirty levels are still rising the poorest of the poor live on just thirty five dollars a month spending a third of that on food reported by the overseas development institute says that up to sixty countries are unlikely to eliminate extreme poverty by twenty thirty almost a third us of africans are unemployed often relying on the government social grants to survive but with low economic growth economists say this is not sustainable progress singular on direction and the moment of population growth is higher than

our economic growth or population growth rate is more than one and a half percent and there are economic growth records we all know they get there if we are in a recession and are sort of salt of that on the back up at the prices so for africans. according to the o.d.i. the world is managed to more than half the number of people living in extreme poverty still hundreds of millions like rosie continued to be at the burden of hardship. al-jazeera johannesburg. our time for a quick check of the headlines here now jazeera hurricane florence a started to batter the east coast of the united states it's bringing heavy rain strong winds and rising floodwaters to three states north carolina south carolina and virginia hundred fifty six thousand people are now without electricity it's been downgraded to a category one hurricane but forecasters are warning the slow moving storm will

1:22 pm
well the wine also known by his birth name galani sentamu has often spoken out against what he sees as oppression in his home country of uganda in recent weeks he says he has come to know that oppression firsthand on august the thirteenth he was arrested by ugandan authorities detained in military barracks and initially charged with illegal weapons possession now upon his departure from military courts he was rearrested and charged with treason since his election into parliament last year he has become a sharp critic of president you know what it was seventy it was been in power since one nine hundred eighty six as a musician bobby wind songs of call for political change and freedom from social injustices his rise from poverty to afro pop stardom helped him build a large following among youth with fans family calling him the ghetto president. so it's so good to have you here in the studio in washington d.c. we've spoken to you a couple of times we had no idea that you would ever end up right. but for not good
1:23 pm
reasons i'm looking at some of your compact. in conflict with security forces to soldiers as well i'm wondering if you can actually help us out and let us know what happened to them because this story isn't just about you it's about what happened to some of them just looking here at an empty relapses after being taken off life support machines you'll see his speech out there who is that tell us about his story. i'm privileged to be here finally physically like you say this is not just about me it's about. for many people with thirty three. france's ok continues to fight for his life in a host between india. their little known personalities like a lady who had just had a baby breast
1:24 pm
a zillion section so beaten that by the time i left home she was passing. the whole . book. common in brooklyn and indeed a few others that had been brutalized even before. there were no but numbers who is permanently disabled she sustained the broken scar so this kind of brutality was only new to us our case we just privileged that attracted not only home martin shown but attention the wild over and actually that's why i take it upon myself every day even against. his advice to try and make use of the opportunity to raise that voice raise awareness of the brutality that's ongoing. and it's much appreciated we got a video. comment rosebowl a writer and blogger and uganda and she reminds us a rule of thirty three have
1:25 pm
a listen to what she says and these are going to do a lot of political plan is that. why we need in the words of his really childish. to do for women in the land of the seas when some crooked pithy. comment will kind of walk this is. so when we meet talk about finances hundreds of it leads to to get the story of why it isn't wanted fugitive so that there is a these people into britain the teaching of these stories but what is in the snow that's often when caught up in the decisions that fight it is that this really isn't a cook book bottle. so she mentions women being at the bottom of this pile when people think about those who are injured but also she mentions a ruler thirty three those who are also charged what do you know about them and
1:26 pm
their cases. are very many. very many people beaten mission if you. mention all of them maybe to most of it. there's another lady there cannot go from called sold to my dad she's still in hospital in kampala many of them and most people but most importantly i would thank god that some are still fighting for their lives and indeed i'm here speaking for them but there are those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for example my drive by scene coma. who took the bullets that probably were meant for me he lost his life he was killed by the security forces. and many others continue to be killed in what government claimed. but indeed there were more to you know create more fear within the population you posted
1:27 pm
a picture of your driver. and it was so horrific we couldn't actually share it with we did a stream show very close to that incident. posted it so everybody could see you saw that and this is your reality this horror this violence people your friends people close to you a dying how do you strategize your way through this how do you stay sane. we have no option but to try to stay sane but again we also have no guarantee of sanity especially if our leaders have decided to behave in an insane man you know it is. brutality that's being unleashed on the population every day every time the citizens try to raise their voice their mate with brutal force so. sunny to the
1:28 pm
population is a hard one how will we continue to preach to the population telling them that we especially we as people power or we are forces of change and note. we don't promote violence we don't we don't respect violence and indeed we continue to disagree with whoever tries to paint an image of violence with us we . continuously using their constitutional methods of demanding for our freedom which we believe we shall gain we got a few treats that are like the one of the pottery and i will say the majority of tweets that we're getting from ugandans and people from across the continent in the world are in support of your struggle in your story this is patriot she writes bobby why this behaving like most opposition figures when they're outside their countries they want to discredit everything about the government and spread all
1:29 pm
sorts of lies this is being investigated and if he has information about it he can come in and share it with the ugandan police what do you say to people who think this. i don't know how much more information i have to share with the police about the brutal mudda of my drive which was treated by the security forces i don't know how much more information to give the police about. the gun instead they claimed they found it in my room and then they later dropped the charges. i don't know where to run for justice when the people that suppose they're actually paid to protect us are the ones that are brutalizing us. i don't know all it is moral to keep sadness about in the injustices that are being. unleashed on the ugandan people i believe that it is important for me to use this voice that was
1:30 pm
even raised by the common people to raise their plate let me remind our audience what happened when the wind came out on bail so this was after he was beaten off to he was tortured and this is the reception that he got have a listen. lugo as the flu ah. you. see joining us from cannes column we have chris about when we see and hear the acting ugandan information minister minister is this politics and style what is going on here want people dying why people seem to be to my people being tortured because they don't support your party or very much similar their words. to
1:31 pm
you. what is the most in the book. and what he's describing on the what you are asking to know that. oh it's jewish that is an event that. it is what that smoke. house because. you know where by that should this way about opening day and or that it will be lighted with support one of the kind that we've enjoyed it when the war. but was.
1:32 pm
it what it was. it was probably. ok so. mrs so the president. we've got a nice one person on life support some people being damaged for life are you saying all of these people were sponsible for pelting the car and so that was why they were beaten up until it because i don't think you think your politics ugandan style and you were telling me about a motorcade being pelted. connected to. the plate there. for. what they want of the country and that's what they had to. see.
1:33 pm
one of the book away so that's what if. they want to use the minister right now if you're in the united states trying to hail right now what you want to ask the minister right now live on t.v. well i. would have had so many question to ask but the fact that i was initially. to machine guns were raided by the uganda police and they need me claiming that those we pons were in my room and that's the reason they gave for incarcerating mean military detention which they later dropped and then immediately just minutes later when i got. out of the military quote i was charged with treason and indeed there was a claim that the people that. apparently parroted the president were part of us my question is the president is a mad now. how.
1:34 pm
brick a mind. that is disturbing to me because a president is bullet proof and when it's being claimed that it was painted and that the glass was shattered misstep. is the. glass. which is up and oh. this. is this is. going to did it without to be sure i mean if i have a clean fight someone who doesn't live in uganda this feels incredibly trivial that we're talking about layers of class and call and i some people who are fighting for their life some may never be the same i asked him is this politics ugandan style though it is important. or.
1:35 pm
what is the cold war is what i hate that right so other than that i mean that there's no other violence there's no other reporters being beaten up nothing else happens just because of a copy belonging to the president. who wrote. a constitution. who is willing to go off. with a population the way he did when he was a very member but i mean. you don't know the cost when he was appointed. position section as over the opposition. party. government. would say that it was valued in the way of us this power will not obey the last few months members of the opposition of. this kind of
1:36 pm
violence by the for this. is. where we have seen this kind of violence that is isn't there and hear what you're saying i hear that you are saying that the opposition or some opposition members have used violence as a way of accessing power unfortunately online that is not what people believe i want to read to tweet and i'll direct them to you first before giving them to bobby wanting this is not right but i just i just want you to listen to this because this is scary really a roadway says honestly knowing our government i am worried about bobby safety as soon as he lands back there what i want to know is if he isn't worried about how he will be treated when he returns another person asks my only question how does he plan to stay alive it's unlikely that he's not on a hit list and so we all get bobby wind the answer and this i want to know from you as a member of the government acting information minister what will you do to ensure his safety.
1:37 pm
and when he. must have been accepted to the point that the judges of the but you said nobody would touch him. well we're very safe a lot of people those are just two tweets or three almost all of the tweets we got have people very worried for your safety for your family's safety what do you say to them what are you thinking. i would say that one can expect anything from this regime i mean i just went to our. campaign and they ended up being tortured detained in prisons and even when i was released by court. allowed to travel abroad for specialized treatment i was not allowed so that is a situation i told anybody can sugarcoat it but people continuously get extra judicially killed and. slipped under the carpet.
1:38 pm
looking here at a post that you put on facebook to tell everybody how you were doing and what happened to you your your your recollection of what happened to you before you were taken away and he says here is the next steps i want to talk about the things that we must do together to continue this struggle for liberty and freedom why do you feel that you can do right now is not a place of liberty and freedom. there is no liberty and freedom because people are allowed to meet and talk about anything apart from the future of their country i've said it before and i'll see it again that. it's going to happen and need to take the police hours to show up or even before the. brigade will take hours to show up but once you meet to discuss the future of your country it will take more than a few minutes before the police and the military police comes and brutalizes people
1:39 pm
that is i was happening. or how of. conviction that because you got full of mainly young people anticipating a future that the only imagine you know i believe that. the time is now for us to come together it has been the most treated that ugandans are coming together every day. overcoming the divisions within tribes or religions or political parties. embracing the aspirations that they have together as a nation so much as their challenges i'm convinced that the oppressed people will soon be free see mention young people we got this comment live on you tube from richard richards has bobby has a big future and a role to play in the liberation of disadvantaged young people so long as the government doesn't torture and kill him another person picking up on that theme of
1:40 pm
the use this is bashir who says uganda has turned into a political cemetery our president is severely sick suffering from too much appetite for power and bobby white is the only remaining hope that ugandans have to restore the rule of law and he ends with this intense we are ready to die for him that's chilling almost what what what do you think of that what do you say to people like him because bashir is not the only one it is humbling to know that. it is not just about me it is about all of us and of say many times that this should not be reduced to just me or to jessie small section of people we are more than forty four million ugandans eighty five percent of which are younger than me i'm thirty six but eighty four percent i mean eighty five percent of our population is younger than me so easy right time for us to i'm so glad that young people in uganda embracing the idea of freedom and their slowly overcoming fear which has for
1:41 pm
so long kept our slaves missing we hear this about your country. how is that because the whole world is listening to this and the whole world is thinking this those are major issues into mako saying in uganda and uganda's administration does not like the opposition to be that minister. let me just repeat it very very very briefly there's space for the opposition there's not space for the opposition how much space is there for them to operate minister can you hear me where work on that and where we're get back to you he can't hear me because it's a little bit difficult i know the connection between us and kampala is a little bit tricky. something the president seventy said just just this week and he was talking about other forces being involved in what you were trying to do in terms of leadership let's have
1:42 pm
a listen to what he said it is important that the external players the roof from. other countries interfering in the internal affairs of other countries is morally and ethically wrong morally wrong because. what. you have to see that you can understand the problem with my house better than we do which ones. if there is a problem in our house with the archdiocese would sort of keep out probably what do you think president seventy was referencing rock. i would say. it's a big insult to the people of uganda. for their leaders to think that when they demand for freedom when they demand for liberty when they raise their voices about the
1:43 pm
rampant corruption the rampant unemployment it is an insult to claim that they're being funded even being supported by out say does. that uganda is part of the global community. development partners and years truman rights and freedom is the world over. many countries and indeed we continue to stand with many other countries so the world should be expected to stand with us it's pretty early in this time when the eyes of the wild. in uganda. in the world are also many of them takes on you i wanted to bring our attention to the back wall behind me and these are just some of the images and superimposed that people have been using and posting with bobby wine and bobby wine as the hostile at one point in just a day there are ninety seven thousand mentions of that hostile act and that's
1:44 pm
across the world so clearly people are watching the story but then what comes next busier here on twitter sighs what policies do you have that you personally think can transform the youth in uganda at large another person picking up on that says apart from the freedom promises that you talk about what plans you have for unemployment or are you thinking about policy changes right now or all those can later of course. the composition is why but you to contrast things fast. to mention that many ugandans are educated both in uganda and abroad because of the rampart unemployment who have seen a lot of brain drain a lot of talent. intelligent young men and women or even the old people have leased to our lived uganda and exiled themselves or gone all over the world to seek for you know better pastures and even those that have stayed in uganda have not given any chance to put their talents and knowledge is to play simply because uganda has
1:45 pm
