9:35 pm
to return back to how it was in september before 6 south indian prisoners escaped. and it's winn prison. 5 of them are from slamming had movement. and members of that movement say that they've been singled out by israel, by solitary confinement, as well as interrogation. now, over the years since the 1900 sixty's, we're talking about more than $23.00 hunger strikes and a 70 percent of them according to observers, have been successful. now the success is very when it comes to how much of these demands were much by the way, the present service. and sometimes the is ready for the service back trucks on those demands that were agreements that were made earlier, prompting more prisoners to go into hunger strike. and it is still seen as the most powerful tool prisoners have inside this room. now when it comes to this strike, this time, prisoners say that israel is affecting the way prisoners,
9:36 pm
specifically those from atlanta to had, are dealing with their live inside prison and organizing their life. they are. and this has been one of the demands that was met in previous hunger strike to the us now. and president joe biden has a meeting with retail and delivery ceo's in union heads. the white house is trying to contain the economic fall from disrupted the global supply chains. following the karone of ours, pandemic would use factory apples over the past a month and shipping low jams bang blind for this story. let's bring in the white house correspondent, kimberly how could, who's live for us. kimberly, tell us a little bit more about the supply chain issues facing the u. s. and that backlog and the delivery of those critical goods. this is something we're standing by waiting for the u. s. press and to speak on any moment. following that meeting with ceos like the head, a fedex, and
9:37 pm
u. p. s. as well as retailer giants like wal mart. essentially what the problem is, according to the treasury secretary, janet yellen, is that, in fact, when the economy shut down to the coven pandemic demand for goods declined, but a rather demand for goods increased well services decline in terms of demand. and that led to a shortage that was exacerbated by some of the problems you identified there. not only the lack of staff to man, some of the manufacturing plants that produce these goods. but it also led to what we're seeing in los angeles. and that is when terms of a backlog, a major problem in the united states, given the fact that 40 percent of goods come through that port in terms of the in ports add, exacerbating all of this is the fact that with labor shortages there are on the truck drivers needed to help get this material moving across the united states, and there's a shortage of labor in stores to stock the shelves. so this is something that the
9:38 pm
white house press secretary in her briefing just a short time ago, insisted as temporary. the white house says they knew that this would be a problem as the economy turned back on and they are continuing to look for ways to resolve this issue. so the president, him is planning to open that los angeles port 247. kimberly, will that be enough to resolve these supply chain issues? do you think? well, the president's critics say no. and in fact, there was some nervousness given the fact that the white house press secretary could not make the promise that people looking to buy gifts for the upcoming holiday season would be able to do so. in fact, just the opposite. we're getting warnings that if you want to make a purchase, you should do it fast. and the problem is compounded. the situation for the white house is inflation. in fact, the price for things that americans need, like gasoline, as well as housing cost is a lot higher than the federal predictions. and so this white house continues to
9:39 pm
insist that this is temporary. but the president's critics like republicans on capitol hill, say that it's biden's policies that are making this even worse. they point to that $1.00 trillion dollar quote, a virus relief package that brought to with it direct payments in the thousands for ordinary americans. they say bad is contributing to the labor shortage and also contributing to inflation. so once again, we're watching carefully to see what more the president will be talking about when he speaks from the white house in a short time or so. but at the same time, the white house press secretary and saki saying that this is a white house looking for solutions and planning to use every tool. it's tube tool box. in order to address these shortages, they'll need all those tools. thank you very much for the update. kimberly help get there for us. live e apps have the white house may mile. there are also growing concerns over food shortages in the u. k. after an impass of the country's largest commercial port, england's porto flexes felix store rather handles 36 percent of the countries

imports. but a shortage of drivers has prompted some companies to divert their shipments. u. k has had trouble with his post pandemic, economic recovery with low fuel and food supplies. police in cause of our have scaffold with ethnic serbs during operation to crack down on smuggling rights were held in 4 areas where police use t guess. as it says, 3 stones and other objects they blocked the main road of north metro with trunk because of the declared independence from serbia in 2008. but large communities of ethnic serbs still live with him because of those borders. returning to the us now and the immigration agents will no longer carry out mass raids at work places to detain, undocumented immigrants. it's out of president joe biden shift towards punishing him. is this is that violate labor laws rather than going after vulnerable workers,

9:42 pm
becomes a more humane situation than be, i'm actually rounding up people who are not here with it but actually putting them in detention. what i was saying is they are going to target the employers that not just higher undocumented labor, but actually a bullying that document the labor, meaning they pay them some standard weight. they give them sub standard working conditions. people are constantly having access to it on the work site. people are abused on the work site. so to the extent that those employers don't have a market for a document that immigrant anymore, that's probably on balance, a good thing because you really don't want those employers operating because that's not the system that it both at all. or is it even helpful to america writ large to have employers out there exploiting workers in that manner? tens of thousands of government support has had been rallying in. some of the live is biggest cities. it follows days of anti government protests against

9:45 pm
you know, when they take to the streets. unfortunately, it means the institutional spaces have shrunk. this is not a good sign. both the government and the opposition are showing their force. while the law they're fighting over has been put on hold, represent the divisions in bolivian society, again visible on the streets, a return to the social and political term. all those plague the country throughout much of its history now seems inevitable than shawanda. oh, to 0, protest is in peru have gathered around a statue of christopher columbus in the capital to call attention to the treatment of indigenous people. they say colonization created deep inequities on the continent. the protest comes during hispanic heritage month, which commemorates the arrival of columbus in the americas. a 2nd group grad gathered to protect the statue in the u. n. c. $60000.00 people who work in film and television and voted to go on strike unless

9:49 pm
the memories fill my mind. i keep remembering the old days when i was young and working with my teacher or when i was in my shopping, damascus. especially when i need the materials, it was easy to find them because they are originally from syria. a nonprofit organization founded by the prince of wales, called turquoise mountain, is reviving handicrafts of the past and providing artisans like to banish with their future. there is a dwindling number of skilled craft workers and declining interest in this most air of, of styles. so designers recruit and work with artisans to reimagined creations, more palatable to contemporary consumers in the region and beyond. i'm helping say the 15 their businesses and develop new products, but putting into consideration the importance of significant elements and culture
9:50 pm
in terms of your craft in general. so it's, it's very satisfying, actually seeing for the company life to protect what turquoise mountain describes as endangered handicrafts. it's ensuring a new generation learn centuries old skills from wood and metal working to basket weaving says 2019. it is trade about $250.00 people and paid both artisans and apprentices. mohammad ibrahim is a palestinian refugee who has been training for 3 years. have been if he hadn't hum small due to what attracted me most is that this skill is rare. enjoying going to master craftsmen. i've the rough man to banish hopes to reopen a store in damascus with his sons one day. but by coming to jordan, he has already created a legacy. he may not have anticipated, he sharing his rarefied skills and cultural pride in
9:51 pm
a country where there's never been a history of this kind of woodworking. natasha, good name al jazeera, i'm man jordan, it's time for sport, his gemma. thank you, emily. the international olympic committee says it will not pressure the winter olympics, post china about its human rights record test events taking place right now i had of basing at 2022, which begins in february. there have been growing cools for the games be for the faint or boy cos it unless china ends it's cracked down against muslim week as several countries, including the united states, has called it and genocide. china denies any wrongdoing. the vice president john codes says human rights are important, but outside of the olympic movement, it's not that responsibility. the i sees remit is to ensure that there is no human rights abuses. in respect of thee, the conduct of the games within the national, limpid committees,
9:52 pm
or within the olympic movement. we have no ability to go into a country and tell them what to do. wake all we can do is to award the olympic games to a country under conditions set out in a house contract. the i see stones comes as no surprise to olympic ortho professor, jewels boy off who we spoke to earlier. when vice president coats is talking there, you can see the international olympic committee selective ethics on full display. on one hand, it's the all powerful entity, the can choose where to place the games. on the other hand, it acts as if it can't do anything. you can see in the olympic charter itself, there's all sorts of wonderful ideas about freedom, justice, dignity, respecting diversity. but then when it comes to china where you have ongoing crimes against humanity, those are, those qualities are not to be found. and yet the international and the committee
9:53 pm
look the other direction we saw with the most recent olympics in tokyo, that they would go on to desperate measures to carry out the olympics even during a dangerous pandemic. even when the host city did not want to continue with the games, and yet the games went on because the io see made it so you're seeing again the reason is money, they need to keep that money flowing into olympic coffers. on the other hand, there's a long tradition in the international olympic committee of pretending that politics don't matter when berlin host of the games in 1936, hitler was in charge. and yet the i o. c said, there is nothing we can do about that. now what i'm not saying is that we're looking at the same situation between hitler and beijing. absolutely not. however, when i am saying is, there is a long tradition of staring injustice in the face by the international committee and choosing to look the other way. pressure is building on athletes to speak out. after all, we're living in what we might call the athlete empowerment era. and many athletes are really in there, increasingly concerned about injustices in our world. and yet,
