10:33 pm
ah, i am at my tavern dean to day on the stream 3 stories we are following closely, levin years into the warren syria. we look at how it's impacting generations of syrian children. next afghanistan, where the taliban is once again forcing women to cover their faces in public. but we start in sri lanka, where a political crisis took a violent turn this week and the basis should be the skyrocketing by his office inches to cotton. he couldn't, so did he so the speaker to get those that are shorter use of shoot items, only limited stocks released shockers may be seen and that huge cues fall for
10:34 pm
a domestic gas and kerosene. and he does, in fact, of the transportation and this is some indication as good the doing on families has impacted quite a lot because of these issues. and the other part of the societies. phoebe i o as good. we from gas station as been helping the families to be seen shows around the country. on thursday, sri lankan president guts of ira dad, passed poxy, appointed a new prime minister to contain protests over his handling of the severe economic crisis. the government is grappling with rising oil prices and the impact of tax cut here to discuss more from the capital. colombo is al jazeera, as manella fernandez, and i will thank you for being with us. i want to kind of get straight to it. it seems like every day the situation is escalating a political crisis. economic crisis turning into basically social people. what's the latest? so a couple of hours ago we got
10:35 pm
a new prime minister run in vicar missing her. he is not new to the rule, but it's his latest sort of turn at the post of private and social longer. he's been serving for a record number of times as prime minister of this country. and this is number 6. interestingly, he's never yet been able to complete a full right. and i understand that even though he's been on the political scene for decades, he doesn't have a lot of support amongst the public or the opposition as you outlined. i mean, it seems like relying because economy as we've been talking about for weeks, as we know, is in a freefall in terms of, you know, the desperation for lack of a better word. what's it like me now on the ground? i mean, i've seen the lines, i've seen a lot of footage of people looking for basic goods. how bad is it? it's getting increasingly difficult to source essentials. now there are obviously
10:36 pm
certain kinds of goods that are in short supply are just not available. for example, of cooking gas or now petrol and diesel fuel for vehicles. so the doors are sort of key things which, you know, every single household more or less relies on. and when you're not able to secure those things, in addition to the fact that you know, your basic staples are also a sort of becoming more and more difficult to come by. as well as the fact that cost of things are skyrocketing. i mean, every sort of visit you do to the supermarket or the grocery, so you need to double check on prices because the rupees in freefall. yeah. for after a long time of sort of controlling it very tightly, the authorities have now allowed a freeflow. it's all of us of the skyrocketing. so all of these things put together, surging inflation. 30 percent plus is really making it tough for the ordinary shall anchors. i know. speaking of how tough it is,
10:37 pm
let's listen to ordinary 3 luncheons themselves and take a listen. ah, we have hit the bottom economically. we earn a living from money made by driving this order ritual. by the time i q up for fuel and managed to get any petrol, the curfew will be imposed, i don't have enough time to do my job. i will have to go home without my man that would not hello come out even though shops, but there is no point. there are no people what were adjusting. okay, not good. you know, i see those people speaking and i hear what you're saying. it seems like concerns are rising get when it comes to the president himself, he's tweeting thing. i urge all 3 lankin to reject the subversive attempts to push you towards racial and religious disharmony. promoting moderation, toleration and co existence is vital. this religious disharmony that we keep hearing about. i mean it's re lumpkins of criticize the speech on wednesday by the president. i believe it was his 1st. if i'm not mistaken,
10:38 pm
manella since the protest really began. what, where do you see this going? is he able to contain this politically? economically? is he going to be able to, to a p people or to deliver the basics for them not to increasingly get more volatile and violent? that's what he's hoping. and that was the appointment of running a victim of thing. he's all about essentially trying to sort of steer this ship through some very, very choppy waters at present. because his own team of the people that he had surrounded himself with to deal which every economy had, let him down so badly. now, there are members of his team that the president seem that have sort of accepted the fact that the president was misled. that he didn't have the right kind of advice of officials, but the of the end of the day, these are not sort of surprises. you've had the opposition for months,
10:39 pm
almost off doing if you're more warning of the fact that it's depth has been on sustainable that it is heading to as a major crisis, weights, foreign currency reserves atkins. and in fact, some of the sort of strong representatives on the economic side of the opposition had urge that we go in for a sort of a plan default on debt repayment. i mean, this was almost a year ago, but the government just continued in almost a pig headed fashion of insisting that they were in control of everything. but on the side, they just continued printing money. copious amounts of it to the sort of balance their payments. and at the same time, they sort of went on this major trip saying they have never defaulted the country and indeed independence, it is never defaulted on any debt and loans that they would do this. so we saw the foreign curren plummet, right. and onto the upside that there was almost no more money in the kitty. then
10:40 pm
they kind of woke up and started talking crises and stuff and asking everybody to get involved with this kind of recovery. so it was a bit too late. right then you know, we have a lot of people in our youtube child commenting live thing for example raise one rahim things 3 long because economic crisis is a tailor made one by the raja pasha family. and we've also been seeing a lot of those, so footage, really shocking footage of cars as you can see on twitter right here being dumped into the water there, into lakes. and you know, it seems as though certainly online that the story is, is not going anywhere. we're going to keep following it. now. i want to thank you for joining us. we're gonna have to leave it there for today. but you can also follow all of manella reporting at al jazeera dot come from sri lanka. we now moved to syria in 2021 on the stream. we marked one decade of war, but we also candidly asked, does anyone even care anymore? since then?
10:41 pm
we've seen other conflicts take over the headlines, but have a listen to what our guest doctor had saw fluid and aaliyah malik how to say what's happening is, syria is affecting a whole generation of children. it started that seed on crisis, started with children calling for freedom and 55000 of them have been killed, says the beginning of the crisis. their life expectancy was got down by 13 years and then. ready of conflict and there's still you still are the. ready victims of the crisis and unfortunately the international community does not have a solution for them to and this crisis and. ready move towards peace and justice. young children are quite literally the future and i just think how can you build the future on you know, for this generation and with this generation by this generation, when the trauma, so america and there isn't really a possibility to, to remediate it by asking for justice or accountability this
10:42 pm
week, unicef warn the 12300000 syrian children are in need of aid, both inside the country and in the wider region where they've flood since the war began. to discuss this, we have julia to mom. she's regional chief of advocacy and communications for unicef in the middle east and north africa. juliet, thank you for being with us. i want to ask you straight off the top, we've heard a lot of different concerns around the welfare, the well being of children in syria. what is the most pressing matter on your mind? first, let me thank you for having me both and more importantly, sincere condolences for, for your last over the coming or sharing number. honestly, thank you very much. what's going on the most is the fact that it's 11 years down the line the needs are in children are huge. in fact, last week we recorded the highest number of children in need in pipes area. and it
10:43 pm
was on the eve of the conference where we have out for virgin funding that we needed for her in children. yeah. you know, when we talk about that urgent funding, looking at a tweet from a j plus wrapping up some of the statistics, you know, serial release thing that 100 over $100.00 schools will be closed by august. this is obviously going to have ramifications that go far beyond that. you know, we know 1750000. that's almost 2000000 children in theory are out of school. obviously that increases the risks of them. you know, confronting kind of tougher life realities such as child labor and child marriage. how realistic is that connection? what's the immediate need? do you mean for education specifically? yeah. like in terms of, you know, if they're out of school, how, how large is the risk then they might fall into tougher life realities?
10:44 pm
very large. in fact, we have seen the education crisis developing over the power that k. oh, we're talking about half of 53, and children who need to been going their after school. and the longer children stay out of school, you know, from, from others i think the more difficult it becomes to get children back to school. so they do indeed full pray, hard labor and time marriage. and in the case of we've seen many, many children, badly joining the fighting. right. and, you know, it's, it's really tough to imagine. it's been over 10 years, and yet it's so seldom that we actually see any real focus, at least in the media, quite frankly, these days put on syria. andy warrior, kind of talking about this disparity and how far we've come in you tube saying to
10:45 pm
us, i think the world should stop caring and interfering and leave syrians fan for themselves . they can take care of themselves. they were doing a pretty good job. obviously not, not the little simplistic, possibly in terms of a criticism, but this notion of who is responsible at this point. juliet, where do you try to draw the most attention or where do you expect to get the most support for these children? ok, well really, you know, confirm to point fingers or to say who is responsible. what really matters now is that children in syria and in the neighboring countries have been suffering for way through long and then they finished fighting. and until the solution is found, we have to, we have to continue, continue how children in theory and in the neighboring concrete, the knees are huge. the ripple effect off the direct prices into serious
10:46 pm
neighboring countries like lebanon, jordan, to egypt is phenomenal. these countries have been generous, taking on almost $6000000.00 refugees over the course of the year. we can give up, right, serious and the children of the region and really protracted conflicts, obviously, making that all the more challenging, you know, with what's happening in the ukraine and russia in the fall out. i do want to ask you before i let you go, juliet is still in our region if you will, mental health, really a taboo. i do know that thousands of children have been identified as needing psycho social support due to trauma. and this also might mean that they're less likely to get that important support. how big an aspect is that in terms of where the needs are for these children? huge bird children are fair. not only live in a war, they live in a war in find them. they've been trust the thieves that no one should see. i mean,
10:47 pm
when i was in syria, i remember meeting a child who i think about 7 or 8 years old and all he talked about was about death . and he used the word that so many times and i was just mind boggling that it's on his age, knows what that means. he witnessed that he spoke about it and he was just so numb and it was just one child. and there's many, many children like this, and so the need on our mental health are immense. we do know that children in 5, syria, especially those living in areas where the conflict is ongoing, like in the northwest, they have children sleeping, they bed where they cry or all the time they're clean and thought. the bath now is often under reported and often spoken about for a number of reasons, but the need are, are really,
10:48 pm
really high. i'd like to thank you for speaking to us today in general and about this juliette. we look forward to speaking with you again and now to afghan, to stand where the taliban is. once again requiring women to be covered up head to toe and forcing them to stay indoors unless accompanied by mail, chaperone town. men's latest order is a very serious escalation. in their ongoing attack on women's rights, this order not only orders that women and girls should covered their faces with either a burke or in the cab when they're outside the homes. it also says that they shouldn't go out of their home at all unless it's absolutely necessary to do so. and the order says that when women disobey the punishment will be inflicted, not on damn, but on their male family members, which essentially makes every afghan man the jailer of his own female family
10:49 pm
members. here to share her thoughts with us. ashton on dirani is the director at learn afghanistan. persona. thank you so much for being with us. i. i saw you nodding as we heard from heather there at the top of this segment. what do you make of what she said, how she frame things, but more importantly, as a young sort of advocate, what concerns you most of what's happening. thank you so much for having me. and them not putting this mark light enough on a sun, although it's, it's barely in the news anymore. yeah, yeah. what heather sees is god desk. i'm thinking makes sense. but also at the same time, if you look at it, there is nothing left to back. literally left to ban. you band education, you band. going to school, you been working outside you been leaving the country so what as is left to grab the international attention. oh, it's forced, he job or a book got there already in practice. i come from a family, my mom,
10:50 pm
i sort of fees from for my anchors, but you know, because that's how we are in the agents. and that has been in place. and when the americans are me too keen, it didn't change. continue eva, seem and people, and called, well, if you look at the seventy's and the 60 and the eighty's didn't where they had job back then either not by his job. i mean the whole work i by he job, by the job. i mean the what proper clothes and the color color, the pieces you have to understand that it has been in practice from past few decades and you can just see that. oh we enforcing at his job on the right. sorry. yeah. well, i appreciate you bringing that up and also making the point that there's nothing left to ban. no looking at just are tweet from al jazeera english men and women are not now now allowed to dine out together or to visit public parks on the same day. it seems like a lot of measure is being taken. i wondering what is the actual intended aim and i
10:51 pm
want you to speak about, but because you also master mention castaneda, this idea of the memory, you know, i understand the average age of, of women in afghanistan is just under 20 years old. now i don't ask you how old you are, but i'd imagine pretty close. and you know, in some respects a relative sense of liberty might be all they know relative to what the taliban is demanding right now, in most afghan women's living memories, i would imagine of this idea of compulsory hadn't face coverings are also quite limited. what can you share with us about kind of where afghanistan was and, and what this, how people women are processing this on the ground, still protesting. well, there's the, you know, i'm 24 bad google tanks that and 25. so that's the essence. but apart from that, yes, majority of avalon women are under goods are under 20, a 20 move up on the sun is a young country. and at the same time, it's not just
10:52 pm
a one good or something right now if you're expecting a brother to be beaten, what a sister who is not hiding her feet because she's sweet too young. but as physically and big a completely loses them. motion are the notion that this girl is not accepted as enough in her own country, you know her own womb, and is not comfortable going outside your own country, supposed to protect you for that. that's the 1st thing. the 2nd thing is right now . if you look at all these decrease literacy workforce traveling, everything is around women, but you do see that the country is also abusing human rights right now in the northern parts of up on is done and even the ex army officers and police officers to have fun i'm the taliban right now. are not focusing on hungry or this tiring are the managed? nothing is being done about that. how many degrees have been passed that the taliban should actually be using the texas used from the port of towards the hospitals or the management wards or the stammering wards?
10:53 pm
nothing back. so, but on a visit and every now and then we have a decree on women. why so? because they're using women on this, on us for their own political gains. and at the same time, you have to see that each 9 months ago, we had a country where 30 percent of the workforce was women. we had millions of good in schools. we had a fax on that women traveling alone. we had a women as better than those we had women who are politically representing you representing you in civil rights representing you internationally. we had an identity, we had a passport, that was actually acceptable. we had a government that was accepted, but i let them know those and i'm not, i'm person, i appreciate you saying you know how, how things were and where they're, where they are now and where they're headed. i want to also kind of hear from some of those brave woman, still protesting this latest decision. take a listen. hello. hi, good balaban imposed their culture on afghan women under the name of the his job.
10:54 pm
ever since itala bon seized power in afghanistan, all their projects have been against women. they want to limit and eliminate women from the field of society and politics. them are here, paul mc, let him, but we want to be known as a living creature. we want to be known as a human being, not like a slave imprisoned in the corner of the house and have our husbands beg for a piece of bread. we'll never ever one such a day. it's gotten on the claim. for santa, when you listen to those women, i'm wondering how do you feel about that? i'm going to be honest. at one point i am proud that there are women despite any way out of all this stuff. they're still standing up straight. i the but at the same time i do few side backed up for the past 20 years. our women were weaponized
10:55 pm
used for legalizing this war. and then now pulls this even. now women, i used as political wants by the current treaty to have your, their own recognition and political gains. so yes, there is a sense of pride, but also a sense of hopelessness and sort of, you know, when you feel down because that's not what is there you're supposed to be at work. right. opposed to be looking after that. students not this, are you optimistic based on? i mean we have a question from andy and are you to child saying what i've done is feel about their neighbors and their role in the plight of janice. and are they helping or not helping? i mean, looking regionally looking at the international community, you mentioned at the top of the show that in afghan, a santa unfortunately isn't really covered the way it props once was. are you optimistic? the things will change for women and even even more broadly, as you made the point, you know, there have been new videos and testimonies that have been emerging online of, of new executions as well as arbitrarily detaining unarmed civilians. are you
10:56 pm
optimistic for the future of afghanistan? i think i am optimistic about the women i felt when it's done and the fact that we haven't isn't back in the d m, it's nothing new. this has happened to us again and again. but then at the same time, one thing that i want to highlight is the regional powers, have all those been. i games the one to sunday have always played a way to row to make sure that the women understand are always back. i am currently honestly disappointed at the fact that the regional women were actually muslim, philistine towards their own muslim sisters were free right now under the gene that's imposing so many laws that are not even sure. yet. shania weiss right? yeah. you know, as you talk about those women, i mean, what do you think they can do? what is their role? i mean, like a, for starters, the country pakistan has a lot of women representatives. why are those women are presented silent right now?
10:57 pm
why not pushing their own leadership to ask the taliban to stop being this to the women of afghanistan to opened a school for women? and up once and i mean closing schools did come from that side of the border. so why are and be pushing for that? and apart from bad, the thing was like it on, i mean, you know, has a lot of women representatives, india as that goes, why are they pushing for that? if the want to stand what that women flemister? well 1st persona, obviously this is a story that's not going away. i do want to ask, you know, we saw the news about young girls and now we've seen women being restricted, our girls able to go to school just very quickly. what's the state about? no good cannot go to school guys from grade 6 to 27 to 12. i'm not a bad being. all right? yeah, yeah. so, so essentially it's the same as it was a several weeks ago when that when they prevented them from going to school. thank you pastrana for all that context. we have to leave it there to day. but remember,
10:58 pm
