district councils but anger against the government eroded their support they've apologized to the public for misreading the vote those aligned to the post camp say it's a nightmarish result and the city's government will need to reassess the people's demands have spoken quite loudly and clearly haven't they so i believe what we now do is subject to look at what it called a 5 major demands and what are you that any of them can be dealt with but the more satisfactory than before the district council elections are traditionally and on a vengeful poll but after 6 months of anti-government demonstrations and increasing violence this election was considered a barometer of public support for the protesters this is a win for the protesters that could be a point for them to say we've we've arafat's on the street have converted into a tangible political outcome of this is a good opportunity to step back and take stock and and think about what next for the protest movement so it may see a period of relative calm for hong kong after

12:13 am
haven't paid too much attention this vote in hong kong yet but i think stopping the violence and chaos is the priority now we are too soft on the hong kong facts tolerance has to have a limit. the chinese central government should strike them hard. but do you know the result of the vote though i don't know the result yet i've been busy all day with work and. official media coverage before hong kong's vote and of the turnout but not the results suggest speccing thought those results would be different it seems unlikely though that the actual results will change beijing's attitude towards hong kong i don't think there will be any change in the positions on the chinese central government why because this is a matter of upmost importance to the child it really impacts on the one country 2 system it impacts on china's sovereignty over hong kong already the government has

i know marion with the idea is to allow them to at least this is what the president is saying safeguard what he calls key installations water electricity hospitals and possibly police stations as well that it could also be extended to us safeguarding or patrolling the metro station so the a lot of the people in the opposition and people out here on the streets where we are going out of town are very unhappy about that they say that the army has already shown that it violates human rights when it was out for 10 days when a state of emergency was declared back in october at the end of october and they say that it's not time yet to open the door such as that that the only way that this peace can be peace can be restored and security can be restored to chile is by implementing the social reforms that people out here on the streets are calling for right now we're at

a lot of expectations with today's demonstration because this is the 1st one that was formally called by the leaders of this strike both the unions and students organizations that have started the national strike last thursday many of this from gatherings that we have seen happening in the past few days so there's a question here of just how. big this will be if if it will be again as big as it was last thursday another question is if we're going to see again the kind of violence that we've seen thursday and friday when there were clashes with the police organizers are hoping that it will remain totally peaceful today they have reached an agreement with the city. to send anti-riot police to control these demonstrations or just the regular police on friday you might

12:31 am
a government decision to expel omar care who's a u.s. citizen he's been accused of supporting a global campaign to boycott israeli goods and services and is writing a little from $2017.00 entry to people who publicly support the movement made to abraham has more on this now from the occupied west bank. this drive to the airport and the legal battle the drew international attention for a year and a half. this israel palestine director for human rights watch are much sakit see very soon thank you has left israel. this is the 1st deportation since a 2017 law that bars entry for supporters of the boycott divestment and sanctions movement against israel human israeli government says scheck it has been active in the b.d.s. campaign in the past it's not about omar it's about human rights watch there's no point replacing them or because our next researcher would have the exact same
12:32 am
problem they're all market in 2016 human rights watch issued a call for businesses to stop operating in illegal israeli settlements in the occupied west bank a call this israeli supreme court said amounts to a boycott shack and won't be leaving his post and will continue working from abroad he says the human rights watch will double its efforts so that it's not affected by his deportation ultimately while facing a small but i hope that this is a clear message to the world because alternately if the world is unable to stop israel from deporting somebody documenting rights abuse how is it ever going to stop rights abuse earlier this month israel's interior minister area dairy said all those who work against israel will not be allowed to live or work in the country. after shuckers the british and many here are wondering who might be next human rights organizations say the this isn't doesn't target only who advocate

a boycott but it's a warning against any critic of the israeli occupation later because it is a palestinian working with amnesty international and. he was denied the right to travel outside of the west bank in october and he says this is because of his work against israeli settlements the ban was imposed a couple of months after we released the campaign against online companies that we're going to israeli settlements so this is obviously an attack not only against me but against all the critical voices that speak against what the israeli government is doing israel considers the b.b.'s movement a strategic threat while rights activists say it's one of the few is left to fight against those who look to preach and. over to him al-jazeera the occupied west bank . u.s. president donald trump ordered the pentagon to let a member of the navy who was convicted of misconduct keep his status and a case which led him to fire his navy secretary navy seal edward gallagher was
12:34 am
convicted of posing for photographs with the body of a teenage eisel captive but cleared of murder the navy wanted to oust him from the commando unit defense secretary mark s. but said trying to intervene here peaceably in the case hoped before he gave the order to fire richard spencer on sunday gabriel is on a joins us live now from washington and so president trump has been speaking about the firing of the navy secretary what more we learned. yet trump is standing by his decision as commander in chief of the armed forces of the u.s. military to basically defend this special forces navy seal. soldier trump has been defending him for many many months now but as you mentioned it's been a very controversial cases one analyst said it's almost like trump is at war with some of his own military leaders within the armed forces despite the fact that the
12:35 am
secretary of the navy and even the commander of the u.s. special forces wanted to demote this navy seal navy seal as you mentioned that was acquitted of war crimes but was convicted of posing a trophy photo as it's called with a dead person in iraq that is considered unbecoming in the u.s. military the commanders wanted to kick him out of the special forces trump stepped in and said nope he will not be kicked out if he wants to retire he'll retire with all of his on hers trump met with the bow garion prime minister in just the last couple hours and this is what trump had to say about it this is how he framed his support for this particular navy seal. there's never been a president that's going to stick up for them and has like i have including the fact that we spent 2 and a half trillion dollars on rebuilding or. some very unfair things were happening
12:36 am
you let sergeant bergdahl go you let others go deluding a young gentleman now a person who president obama let go still tremendous amounts of classified information and all the key developments adam schiff the head of the house intelligence committee has put out a letter on the impeachment proceedings now what does he have to say about how that inquiry is is going to continue. well is a fairly long letter more than one page when it's printed out but i can tell you the headline is very clear it's that the impeachment process against president donald trump is moving forward in the letter shift congressman schiff said that there is plenty of evidence out there in the last 2 weeks of hearings evidence that he says quote show the corrupt intent of president trump and quote abuse of power both before and after that very famous july 25th telephone call between president
12:37 am
trump and zelinsky of ukraine so what shift is schiff is saying as we are going to be filing a report and that report will then go to the judiciary committee shortly after the holiday break that congress is on right now they'll come back from break lawmakers on december 3rd shortly thereafter this process will move according to the letter from ship to the judiciary committee and they will then take the next step in this impeachment process so if schiff said in the letter that they want to push this forward as quickly as possible because he does not want and the democrats do not want trump to delay this any further the democrats are saying both publicly and privately they hope to have an impeachment vote in the house of representatives before the in december. thank you very much deborah zonda with the
12:38 am
latest house of washington. now the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has hit a record high and shows no sign of slowing that's the finding of the u.n. well logical organizations annual reports the concentration of carbon dioxide the main gas driving climate change hit $407.00 parts per 1000000 last year that's a growth slightly above the decade's average the other main gases also grew above average this puts at risk the un's own warning that to keep global warming below a tipping point of one and a half degrees where droughts and floods become more likely carbon emissions must be a net 0 and falling by 2030 in the new report scientists say the emissions won't even pay can till last year if current climate policies stay the same well joining me now via skype from north carolina is andrew jones he's a co-director of the climate modeling organization climate interactive how disappointing is it to you that after all the warnings that we've had on climate
12:39 am
change and of course the commitments made under the. climate change agreement in paris that not only are we in a place where the level of greenhouse gases have failed to decline actually where we're hitting new record highs. we've been at this now 25 years of these new are in talks and we yet to really bring the missions down so the concentrations are going up and up really increases the pressure on next week's meeting in madrid for a prop $25.00 meeting of the u.n. to come up with stronger commitments from countries to get those emissions going down how do they come up with stronger commitments if f. failing to meet existing commitments. many of these countries have set up you know standards and goals for renewable energy for keeping coal in the ground and many of the countries actually are on track to meet those commitments i don't happen to be in the one that has the increasing standards but many of them actually are
12:40 am
delivering upon the pledges that they made in the paris agreement. the i want to ask you about one point from the major logical report that you just mentioned that briefly what's interesting about this report is that it doesn't just look at the carbon emissions levels but it also looks at the concentration of these gases now explain to us that the distinction why is that important. so the concentration is how much stays in the atmosphere after we were burning coal oil and gas and that c o 2 in the atmosphere in the oceans and plants take some out but the amount that remains that's like the blanket over earth and the more we have in the concentrations the more that black it traps heat and then temperature goes up right now about one degree c. we want to keep it to 1.5 but that's the stuff that stayed in the atmosphere that's creating all of the economic and ecological disruption that we're seeing with wildfires and sea level rise and so on you made
12:41 am
a quick reference at the fact that you're in the united states and of course we know how president feels about climate change pulled out of that global agreement didn't he i'm just wondering about the impact you think this might have had on the paris climb agreement because the w.m.o. is saying the gap between targets and reality are glaring and growing i mean how is the wind been completely knocked out of this agreement. oh it seems that the wind is not completely out there are now countries coming together and many are the rumors are they will be increasing their commitments the united states has 15 percent of global emissions that's larger than that were 4 percent of the population but there's still another 85 percent that is being accounted for by pledges that we hope will get increased in madrid in a week what have to see what happens when we're actually together there in madrid soon but our hope is that many of the countries of the world realize what needs to be done also here in the u.s.
12:42 am
