4:02 pm
welcome to the program, a group of lawyers as it i'll it will take the case of the killing of ounces, their gentle assuring of access to the international criminal court below is representing palestinian journalists, who they say are systematically targeted by israel. sri was shot in the head by israeli forces while on assignment to the occupied west bank on may. the 11th the international center of justice for palestinian says, sharina family gave permission for its legal action. now jennifer robinson is one of the barristers. she says palestinian journalists are still in danger of being attacked by israeli forces. as we warned in r i c. c. complaint back in april, the attack some palestinian journalist by these red defense force have been widespread, am systematic, and the threat of an ongoing attacks against journalists is clear. sadly, showing up who are close. murder is
4:03 pm
a clear demonstration of the ongoing threat posed journalists and palestinian journalists reporting in the occupied territories and an urgent need to address impunity for these attacks. out there, a media network has also decided to refer the killing a sri and actually to the international criminal court. the network says it's put together a team of international legal experts. and it has decided to take should even as a case to i, c c, to hold her kilo accountable and bring justice to shitty. in addition, al jazeera is exploring all legal, was a bill was abilities and is it her mind to bring justice to sitting? and we will come every initiative to follow up on this guy that the barbara has been following the press conference in london. the key message was that there is no shortage of evidence that is ready,
4:04 pm
forces have targeted palestinian journalists carrying out their job and clearly marked as civilians in press jackets who have been either killed or maimed by israeli armed forces. not just him in recent times, going back to 2018 and the guns border protests in which 2 of the cases in which the initial complaint, the i t. c. a centering on, but going right back many, many years. there are, there are many different journalists bodies around the world who have different figures, depending on when you start. but it runs into the doesn't since the year 2000. that's journalists who have been killed in the occupied palestinian territory. most of them, what palestinian journalists, all of them were civilians, clearly mart doing their job. and in the eyes of those journalists
4:05 pm
targeted for doing so. because as we've heard, israel does not recognize the international federation of journalist press card. in effect, de legitimizing palestinian journalists was called over to rob matheson, he's at damascus gate in the occupy the east jerusalem. and robert would be true to say that many palestinians would like to see firm results from any future investigation and trial. but it's whether that can really be or become a reality. exactly, and i think the best way of describing it is that the palestinians here are hopeful words. they're not exactly confident. and there's good reason for that. as nadine was talking about just a moment ago, the cases that are being put forward to the i c. c, for their consideration that we've been talking about are only a small fraction of the number of cases where journalists have been killed or attacked in this region over many years. now in all. 6 moses,
4:06 pm
there has never yet been a prosecution brought where somebody has been held accountable and somebody has been found guilt and somebody has been punished. and as a result, the palestinians are very cautious about being showing any sort of confidence that the this latest development and as far as the international criminal court is concerned, is actually going to give any sort of justice as they would see it. one of the reasons why that is, um let me just to tell you a little bit about what's happening with sharon's case, particularly. and i should say, of course, that that has actually increased the optimism of palestinians because sharina case jane was a very well known journalist here in the region of course. but also she was that the reaction to her killing has been the world wide and it has brought to attention what has been happening in this region. but nevertheless, the palestinian authority has carried out its own investigation. it has concluded that the bullet that was fired been killed. sharon did come from the weapon, oven israeli soldier. it still has the bullet and it is not prepared to share it
4:07 pm
with any israeli investigation because a well to quoted. it basically doesn't trust israelis is really monitoring for its part is holding its own internal investigation. but that's what happens in every case such as this is where the military police are not going to carry out a criminal investigation because they say there was no criminal act. so as far as palestinians are concerned, that's kind of gray area that kind of lack of trans bouncing that you see here on a regular basis. doesn't do any, give them a lot of a lot of optimism for this case that may go to the i. c. c should consider it for one thing that is interesting is that the palestinians are very aware that the i c, c has said that it's jurisdiction now covers the policy occupied territories. and israel as well. israel doesn't recognize of course the, the i c, c. but as far as the palestinians are concerned, this is essentially a test case for the i see, see if it doesn't meet the mark as far as the palestinians are concerned. if it
4:08 pm
doesn't investigate this or the investigation takes a long time on the palestinians are concerned, the i c. c will have virtually no credibility enforced the milky part is true. so thanks so much. well, so cindy here is a human rights based lawyer in haifa. she explains why this legal action against israel matters. it is true that we're talking about widespread and systematic. i types, deliberate attacks not only on journalists, but also on the wider palestinian civil civilian population and the west bank and gaza, which, you know, a basically a grant, a war crime based on room start to but was not mentioned, is that there's also systematic lack of accountability, i'm systematic, impunity that has been provided by the israeli investigation
4:09 pm
system, but not also that, but also even by the israeli supreme court. and this is very important because when the legal team gets to the i c. c. and when carried con, as the prosecutor wants to open, one of the 1st questions that, that he or the i c c court will examine, is what has is well done in order to investigate what are the kinds of investigations they did. what are the results and how that is where a supreme will deal with that. and throughout the years we see not only got the investigation system that have that, that were open since that and past lead 2009 for example. or in me, 12 in guys, a 2014 guys a 2018 and you just name it including even to the case of shooting or is that investigations are being closed or had here all the out is there
4:10 pm
a news are including why one candidate is to think of a to sentiment ahead of columbia selections on sunday. and japan tests returned to talk with them up to keeping it for more than 2 years. because the panoramic and in the pale, the edmonton oilers in the cupboard. now the governor of ukraine la hans region says 2 thirds of the city of several, the nets, kids now surrounded by russian forces, 90 percent of the homes there of been damaged by shelling. ukraine admits russia has that advantage in the eastern region. more than 40 towns have been shoulder and in the neighboring dynette sk area. meanwhile, ukrainian forces are engaged 1st battle in several denette square pro russian forces and taking control of the strategic town of lyman, ukrainian and russian forces have been fighting for control of the time for several days now,
4:11 pm
while fighting rages in the east. a massive de mining operation is underway in western ukraine. retreating russian forces left mine scattered around the towns near the capital. keep the same bas robbie reports from boucher the united nations estimates that ukraine is now one of the most heavily mind countries in the world. and not just because of the most recent russian invasion that's been going on for months now. but from a conflict that's been. ready raging in the east of the country since 2014, since the invasion began, russia has left so much unexploded ordinance and so many land mines all over the country. experts here in ukraine estimate that it could take as much as 5 years to clear the areas that have been re taken by the ukrainian government. the mining teams like these ones are carrying out regular sweeps on land in farming communities in residential areas, as well as bodies of water, all around the key region, as well as all around the country mines, unexploded ordnance, all these things remain
4:12 pm
a serious and imminent threat people have set them off as well as tractors and fields, cars on the roads, even after russia has retreated from a lot of these areas, there continue to be losses of life and property from the things that they've left behind. in fact, every single national park and forest area in key was currently off limits because of the threats of minds that might be there as well as us. so on exploded ordinance . the government says they have $500.00 d mining experts that are currently operating and that's for the whole country. a country that is one of the largest in europe, and they need to train up 500 more. still a drop in the bucket for what needs to be done. they need more experts that can be mine areas and deal with and explode gordon and they need more vehicles as well. that can then carry those mines and explosives away to areas where they can carry out controlled explosions and, and get rid of the threat. the slow pace of this work means that it is taking
4:13 pm
longer for people to return to their homes and towns and cities that have been re taken by the ukrainian government. this, as russian forces that have re mobilized from areas like this on to the east and the south continues to gain ground and population centers, other towns and cities continue to fall to the russian advance. another is 21 funerals and are being planned in a valley, texas, following the school, shooting on tuesday. along with the grief, there are questions over the actions of police parents say officers could and should have done more if been revealed at no one confronted the gunman as he entered the school, john hendern reports not from valdez. he spoke to some of the young students who were there during the massacre. it was supposed to be the last day of school for the children of rob elementary. instead on the lawn lay a line of crosses, marked with the names of the 19 children and 2 teachers gun down on tuesday.
4:14 pm
fernando rodriguez was among the students hunkered down as the gunman fired 233 rounds. now at the age of 9, he's a survivor of a school massacre. there were shoot over a 100 gold lucia maclam. it's brave of you to come back here and to give flowers to other people as it did, you know, some of you missed them. i'm, i'm so sorry, had to go through that. this boy was also inside returning today to bring flowers to his fallen classmates. for now, this rural town of 16000 people is a profile in mourning the front page of the local paper black. but for the date of the massacre, crosses, filling the town square. shane raymond came to write a farewell message to 8 year old hughes. i a garcia, another victim in the shooting. and one of the latest of americas decades long
4:15 pm
epidemic give gun violence. mazing kid definitely didn't deserve from it. a parents came to retrieve the bodies of children who were gun down 2 days ago. more flowers have arrived here at rob elementary school and more questions have arisen about what exactly happened here. some here's a police acted too slowly to stop the gunman who was locked inside the school for an hour before border patrol agents found a key to the classroom. he was in and killed him in this video circulating on social media as the shooting was going on, parents urge police to go inside. may i can be like that man can be like that. wonder people. yes i do. you know that there are kids right? or little kids, i don't know how to defend himself. like he asked why it took so long. police on thursday had no answers. we want to give you the why that that's, that's our job. to give us time at a tier field vigils,
4:16 pm
senator ted cruz and governor greg abbott mourned the loss. yet both continued to oppose gun control legislation. ah, there's another town in america, joins the long list of places whose names are synonymous with tragedy. john henderson, al jazeera, you've all the texas whitehouse corresponding kimberly. how can josie line from washington dc? it can be the seems to be some positive talk in the corridors of power over gun control. but it's the type of legislation that still seems to be the gray area that everyone can agree on. yeah, for so many years there has been an effort to put in place some sort of legislation that can prevent the tragedies that we've seen this week in texas. and once again, that discussion is again being pursued in light of this tragedy. but the devil is
4:17 pm
in the details if you will, because everyone seems to have a different idea of what gun control actually means. in the past, we have seen legislation passed in the house of representatives only to see it stalled in the senate, the upper chamber of the u. s. congress, where a handful of republicans have been opposed to this legislation. but this time there does seem to be hopeful signs. there are some republicans that seem to be at least willing to have discussions on a number of key points. namely that this legislation could at least entail expanded background checks tighter and more money for school security and also potentially red flag laws that would take guns out of the hands of people that are potentially mentally ill or that could cause harm to others. no, why are these republicans so key? well, in a senate of 100 senators where there are 5050, you actually need 60 senators in order for this legislation to pass. and right now
4:18 pm
the, the balance really is in the $5050.00 range. and so you need these republicans to get on board with the democrats who are in favor of this legislation in order for this type of gun control legislation to pass. and very quickly, we should point out there has been major legislation back in the 900 ninety's of assault weapons bound, for example, that president joe biden worked on and was in place for 10 years. d but it was allowed to expire and efforts back in 2013 to revive it failed. so there are some discussions to bring this type of legislation back again. there is some resistance by conservatives. we're watching very carefully though there is some hope there could be a vote as early as june on some form of legislation to respond to this latest tragedy. thanks so much. kimberly. kimberly help. barrel white house correspondent
4:19 pm
i was saying in the americas because the killing of an armed blackman by police has led to outrage across brazil. a video of the incident went viral on social media and we do war you that somebody is may find the following images in victoria gate and these report disturbing valid, still got a thing to police officers pin down jenny valdez. da. hey. so santos a black man. they say with resisting arrest. they then trap him inside the smoked fil trunk of their police car. oh, look at the man there. oh my god, they're killing him inside the car says one witness. video of the incident went viral on social media. protests have been held in his home town of m bow, but in ne, in brazil, and shock and outrage expressed across the country. for years him rights activists of accused police in brazil, of discrimination, brutality and excessive force. on tuesday, the day before santos died,
4:20 pm
dozens of people was shot dead during a police raid on a criminal gang in rio de janeiro. yes. oh gosh, assumable black to the bay? yes. another massacre and of her val aids truly shocking. we cannot allow it to be normal to the state, enters of her valor and lees with 20 or more dead. relatives of santos say he was unarmed and suffering from heart problems and skits of freeney the federal highway . police have opened an investigation into his death in a statement. they said santos was actively resisting the officers who pulled him over. they immobilized him then used instruments of less offensive potential to contain him. santos was taken to hospital. doctors say he was dead when he arrived at the emergency room. the officers involved have been suspended, but many in brazil fear this may be another example of institutional brutality of racism within the police. victoria gate and be al jazeera. or for the latest for john i bar, monica, monica ivy's in rio de janeiro, monica,
4:21 pm
the pictures that we've seen don't seem to marry with the statement that we've also just heard in victoria's report. so it's no wonder that people are very angry by what they perceive as well. just horrific scenario that's unfolding in brazil. and it's not the 1st time ah, no, it's not the 1st time of the gas sing case was just an example of our cruel, unnecessary brutality. but there is a problem in brazil, which is the lack of presence of the state in poor neighborhoods. so what happens, they've been taken over by our gangs and also by the militia, which our former policeman, who supposedly want to establish the order in a place where the government has no presence. but they charge are the people that lived there for security. it's pretty much like a mob would work. so the,
4:22 pm
and this is going on like in randy's janera and 60 percent of the territory and that is why you have these are cases of shoot outs between gangs also of police rating ah, vela, which is a slum and an shooting arm last year or are there have been and the police in brazil killed 6 more than 6000 people and odd there were 183 policemen killed on duty. also the policeman are under armed when it comes to fighting these gangs. so this is a structural problem. it's a problem that you can just saw very easily. you really have to invest in having a safe presence education. all many things like social welfare. it's not just a case of fighting it out with guns. see what happens in the coming days to the neighbor, monica yet to keep the readers never thank you. now,
4:23 pm
colombians had the pulse on sunday to elect a new president. and for the 1st time, a left wing candidate had saved to win for the prospect is deeply divisive. as alexander run, pierre, to report the bunker tom daschle candidate in former rebel to several papers, governors, millions, especially young voters. by promising to change this deeply unequal country in the 20 year old is stephanie of amie. this decided to volunteer for petra's campaign. after she was unable to pay for her college. during the pandemic and her parents struggled to keep their small shop open boy and meant to come home, it's been very difficult as a young columbia to live in such precarious conditions when it comes to work and access to health and education. and i believe that patrol is betting on changing all of this. the last year she joined tens of thousands of other young colombians to protest against living conditions. there were some of the most violent
4:24 pm
demonstrations, columbia seen in decades. the police crackdown only slaying the discontented, those outraged by the country. widening inequality. i don't know before the protests had been very inactive, politically, but with all the injustices and killings, i could not remain indifferent. it was the desire pings to be different for us, both backed by many poor and working class colombians, but viewed with alarm by business men in some middle class photos. they fear his plans to fall oil development, already distribute pension funds to put economic stability at risk. this letter sent by the manager of one of the biggest mail companies in the country, urging suppliers not to vote for petro went viral last week. it says, pedro, what's put that risk private property and the freedom of enterprise in the country . a federal clause has also been added to a number of contracts this year, allowing the parties to scrap the deal. if the former get comes to power,
4:25 pm
you'll get the mighty of this who runs one of the best known colombian fashion houses is not hiding a support for patrons main rival for that he could have seen as a continuation of business friendly policies of president event. ok, but i prefer the devil. i know i've said many times in south america, the left has never been successful from cuba downward. that's the example. but with more than 20000000 people living in poverty and rising violence, bolts show that 70 percent of colombians once change, not all of them believe fit, those proposals are the right ones. but enough people could decide to give him and the left a chance. allison, that m p at the end of the it will look that it's time for the weather has rob. now the weather in australia by the turn, quite vicious for some, but it starts to say, quietly in sidney, the biggest natural harbor in the world. i mean, e re or pretty doesn't that how you might describe it anyway. the sun is still
4:26 pm
stronger to lift it, but it was there for a few hours and there's not much going on after that. i'm is a big constant admitted leave it that nothing look, look into vicious here, standard stuff with cloud building and rain coming into the west or that might develop into something. so a look at this because when you get this rain persistently falling and slow moving up this coast and he does it every now and again, you tend to get pretty wide spread flooding up to maybe to 30 millimeters of rain flat land. and the roads just about that same level. so flooding is very readily available. now whether a might be a bit more welcome, but will come through rather viciously, particularly the man to dis, here is developing almost winter low by produce briefly blizzard up in the victorian elves overnight temperatures right down camber at 2 degrees. about about 5 that blows through into the tasman. see as kind of stormy says no. melbourne's weather doesn't get any worse afterwards it becomes windy for a while that improves. but of course across the tasman is new zealand. and yes,
4:27 pm
you got rein significantly coming your way. well, still a had here on al jazeera, we are not looking for conflict or new cold war. to the contrary, were determined to avoid both the u. s. as trying to post the challenge to the international order, accusing it of becoming more aggressive and repressive and $40000.00 people fee, the homes and just for days are fighting in the democratic republic of congo is pushing the region to breaking point and installed the olympic champions out of the front shaping format in the news. ah, june on al jazeera, as wash as invasion of cream approaches, the 100 day mark. we bring you the latest from on the ground and the wars global impact. and you 3 part series describes the struggle for the return of african art, funded by colonialism and still housed in your opinion. in today, the g 7 m, nato,
4:28 pm
hold key summits with the water, ukraine, and the growing global food and cost of living crises. this much to discuss is the influence of far right. politics grows. the big picture examines francis struggle to live up to the self proclaimed ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity. the men's world helped qualify. i'm male biting opportunity for countries to secure their spot for caught our 2022 june on al jazeera frank assessment. what are the political risks? banning rushmore. the gas for western leaders will sanctions on russian energy exports. that's a recipe for social in depth analysis of the days headlines inside story on al jazeera. oh,
4:29 pm
a look about want to now is there a news with means the hill run, the reminder of our top stories? a group of lawyers is an ounce. it'll take the case of the killing is i'll just agenda sure enough actually to the international criminal court. she was shot in the head by israeli forces while on to assignment in the occupied west bank. on may, the 11th police and evolve a texas being accused of acting to solely to stop the government behind tuesday, school shooting 19 children and 2 teachers were killed. also 2 thirds of the city of several of the nets can ukraine's eastern hunts region is reported to be surrounded by russian forces. 90 percent of homes have been damaged by shuttling now g sir. 7 climate and energy ministers have released a statement condemning the war in ukraine. they say it's causing widespread shortages of energy and food. the ministers have gathered in germany's capital to
4:30 pm
discuss climate change. the u. s. and germany have signed an agreement on hygiene, power, and expanding offshore wind power. let's get more of this from dominant k in his line for us in berlin. so what more are we expecting to come out of the summit? dominic the summit is over and the communicate from the ministers has been published all $39.00 pages worth all communicate where the ministers go into what they consider to be the most pressing concerns. the world face is not just the g 7, but the world and it takes you have to go more the half way through it to get to the area which perhaps is most dominating. what's been happening in berlin of the last few days. this idea of the impact of the russian war in ukraine on energy supplies on energy security and that sort of thing. the interesting thing is there are expressions of solidarity with ukraine. there are also expressions of
4:31 pm
a determination to take the measures that are necessary, but they don't then spell out specifically what those measures really are. and in some ways that is the light motif for this entire communique. there's something in it for everyone, and yet not very much in it for anyone specifically, the problem ministers of face, pretty simple. they know climate change is real in their minds and something has to be done about it. but they also know that the energy supply situation is so serious that something must be done about that too. this is how the deputy chancellor here in germany, robert harvey, the man at the center of this meeting is that we're, this is how he addressed the situation. speaking to reporters, a while ago does, does on mondays are contract ends is darcy. this conference has once again calibrated the compass beyond the need of the day. the replacement of fossil energy from russia has very much shaped the political debate and the government's actions in recent days, weeks and months. but we have to be clear that the challenge of our political
4:32 pm
generation, namely to curb global warming, will not go away if we focus only on the day and on the short term presence on. certainly dominic v communicate paints a very interesting picture, but what's the next step? one of the interesting things that is alluded to as it were in that communicate is when the ministers refer to other bodies that might make decisions which could help alleviate the situation. well, that's a not very well concealed reference to the e. you remember that there's an e u summit coming up in the next few days in brussels, at which, pretty much all of these issues. certainly the situation in europe, these are v ukraine and energy supplies will be raised. the key issue, the german government, and many other governments want some sort of oil embargo at some point in many
4:33 pm
minds as soon as possible, but they've got to get over the hurdle that is presented by the hungarian government, which is adamantly opposed to the idea of an oil embargo, we know that the german government has said, perhaps if that can't be done as an e u level, some other sort of solution can be proffered. what it means effectively is all eyes will be on brussels to see what will come out of that summit. given what's come out of this summit that's concluded in berlin. in the course of the last 2 hours, thomas came in berlin, thanks very much. the fighting in the democratic republic of congo has forced almost 40000 people from their homes in full days. government forces are battling rebels from the m 23 group when congress are seeking refuge in neighboring uganda. now a government official last as result is a stretch to breaking point. can you will you to host talks between rebel leaders and the d. r. c. presidency, but those meetings have been delayed. malcolm web has more from nairobi. put enough

4:35 pm
prompted to to was that drew in to the african continent. and rwanda and gander, being accused of meddling in ethan congo, backing rebel great leasing minerals ever since. now there was an attentive talk here in ny ruby last month. president of the 70 of you got the came president chickadee of congo here, but no progress was made. but we do understand that the growing pressure now from the u. n. and the international community to get the heads of state or their representatives together to try. and this current round fighting on conflict in castles region of senegal is sending a steady stream of refugees into the gambia. although he say tens of thousands living in the border region had been displaced, but fed the number will rise as fighting escalates amid the dresser poles. now from these senegal, gambia border in less than 2 months, the gumby and village of genic has seen its population swell by 17 percent. oh,
4:36 pm
if it's just 1300 meters from the trouble sannicolas region of cosmos. it's one of the 1st points, of course, for refugees. whenever fighting close up my jeweler, comer, i didn't want to leave her home at 1st. she was 9 months pregnant. but as fighting intensified, she changed her mind as a big a full mouth and i need to know when the drones started dropping their bombs, i decided it was time to leave everything behind to save myself and my unborn child tired of running a pi, a boy john now wants to make the gambia, his permanent tool, having been displeased 4 times since 1982. 0, you will not alma, there's nothing to go back to them. i just want to have some peace in life before i die. lou, running back with very few resources new arrivals, look up to refugees like mom and jessie, who's been in the gambia for nearly 30 years. we can write it on any and

get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that, yes. so in part the secretary of state's task now was to explain whether us policy towards taiwan had shifted. our policy is not changed. we do not support taiwan independence and we expect cross great differences to be resolved by peaceful means . i'm going can read out the portion of us law of in capsulated washington's position of so called strategic ambiguity. to maintain our capacity to resist any resort to force or other forms. of course, that would jeopardize our security or the social or economic system of taiwan. the problem is, joe biden wasn't ambiguous at all, and this isn't the 1st time he's spoken at all with official us policy. so the question does remain, how's policy changed quietly behind the scenes? or is this just a matter of a president giving his personal views off the cuff, the rest of lincoln speech presented
4:42 pm
a stark geopolitical framework of china versus the international order blinking insisting us does not want a new cold war of opposing regional blocks. yet, at the same time, he talented the new alliances, the u. s. was making an opposition to china. this is not about forcing companies to choose. it's about giving them a choice. the speech is likely to be viewed skeptically. in beijing, the speech will be seen in beijing as hypocritical, and be ruling that the fight and administration is picking a cold war mentality to deal with a problem. in spite of entity, blank and saying exactly the opposite. china is clearly a crept to the international order as governed by the rules set by the united states and it's western allies. but it's not yet clear. if none of 9 countries feel this geo political change is necessarily a bad thing. she ever time see al jazeera washington, katrina, you handle basing?

4:46 pm
helped to secure for a while, japan was on track to meeting its tourism ambitions. in 2019, he recorded well over 30000000 visitors. i was fully expecting to reach its goal of 40000000 arrival in 2020. when the pandemic happens. ironically, the start of the pandemic that decimated the tourism sector was heralded by an outbreak on a cruise ship that had docked in yokohama. the olympics were delayed by a year while the country virtually closed its borders. the area which was the athletes village is now under development as memories fade of those ill fated games . and japan can look ahead to reopening to tourism once more cautiously. okay, okay, there are all the reopening that happened gradually. and 1st back it's doors organized, but the travel agencies, through our fears that are rushed, reopening might see a resurgence in coven 19 cases. don't seem to bother a population,

4:48 pm
ah ah ah
4:49 pm
ah ah, welcome back talk to support on his far so hell, thank you so much. the golden state warriors are returning to the n b a finals. they've won the western conference crown that are now taking their 6 trip to the finals in the last 8 years. they be the dallas mavericks and game farm, the content conference finals to do it. play thompson top scored with 32 points while steph curry, who is also name the western campuses, most valuable player. 15 points to lead golden state 212-2110 when war is re to final. for the 1st time since 2019 really lost the toronto raptors of play, either the minus heat or the boston south for team or guys, especially the core group drain staff clay lane. andre, i'm to be part of that. i'm 6 times in
4:50 pm
a years. i don't even know what to say. it's just takes an enormous amount of skill and determination and work. and i couldn't be, couldn't be proud of our or of our gosh, the feel and leave in 2019 finally realizing like, you know, you know, amazing journey and guy. it was a lot of diversity in some speed, bombs but never lost the faith. we could get back here at the french open world number one, know back jock of inches on court right now facing al jazz danay up sl back here in the 3rd round and the women's olympic champion belinda benefit was ousted by canadian teenager layla fernandez. last years, years over to finalize advances to the last 16 at rowen girls. the 1st time she'll face american amanda. and if the mo, by next in the wake of tuesday, the deadly school shooting and texas majorly, baseball teams in new york yankees and tampa bay rays of use their social media
4:51 pm
accounts to highlight the issue, gun violence, the yankees and res, played each other on thursday. night but instead of tweeting about the game, they offered facts about the impacts of gun violence. the tweets were also shared on their instagram accounts that but they also announced they've made a $50000.00 contribution to a gun safety support funds or more on the story we're joined by us sports a broadcaster, michael carlson and michael, how unprecedented it this sort of move has anything like this happened before not that i know of, and it seems like a really interesting way to approach this through the social media channels. it doesn't affect the actual broadcasts of the game, but lots of people follow on on devices. and between the 2 teams and you get about 4300000 followers on twitter and 3.3 are instagram. now obviously there's going to be some duplication there, but that's
4:52 pm
a lot of people to be reaching with this message. why said specifically the tampa bay raise and the new york yankees, they're doing as have they had any support from any other teams? so far as it is been for the quite no one to know has done the same thing. but the main reason i believe is that brooks railey who's a pitcher for tampa, is from move all the taxes. that's his home town. and so someone in the res media management, i talked to him and real and learned about it. and they suggested to the yankees that the 2 teams do this, and the res also made a donation to every town for gun safety, which is a nationwide charity doing that and asked people to do that as well. the yankees have the bulk of the followers. so that reaches far more people buy the 2 teams cooperating, but i just came back from the states yesterday and, you know, the feeling the feeling is that every time this happens,
4:53 pm
the response is the same. and this time the response is finding new ways. i think to, to get its message out there, the reaction is pretty much the same. but this followed on the day before steve kerr, who's the code to the golden state warriors in the n b a playoffs. they were playing in dallas 22 nights ago. and in the press conference before the game, he didn't speak about the basketball at all. he just, he just spoke about how horrible this whole thing is in the sequence of events in america that keeps going. and steve kerr is a person whose father was assassinated when he was the dean of the american university in bay route. so he has experience with gun violence. now has there been any negative reaction from the american public that you've seen, particularly from those who are anti gun control? yeah, that, that's where it would come from. if you look at the twitter feeds,
4:54 pm
you'll see a lot. you'll see a lot of argument going on and it's the same argument we've been having for decades . so guns don't kill people. people kill people. the far right right now is pushing the argument that the school was what they call a soft target. because it's fence wasn't high enough or they want enough security guards or police on, on duty at the school. but, but that's not the point. you know, the point is not that we have to build schools that are like prisons are forts, in order for 7 year olds to go to school. there is always the worry, i think, among owners, as you remember from the nfl say when collin cap, ex protest, and the owners feared a boycott by, by their fans, which never actually happened. and i don't think there's that there. it's just going to be another forum for the same kind of arguments, but i think this is a big step in building the momentum to getting something done. i was in new york and i was in connecticut, which is where i grew up. the senator from connecticut,
4:55 pm
chris murphy was on the social media. literally saying that what are you senators doing and my fellow centers who will not support gun control? not let the bill even be debated. why are you here? why are you even bothering to be in the senate? and i think yet some point is going to reach tipping point in america. you know, it did in britain when there was a gun massacre. strict drop gun laws in australia, the same thing. strict gun laws neither country has had a mass shooting like this. since then, america, we have one every week. he was warrants broadcast or michael carl thin and thank you so much for your time. thank you far. and the n h l. playoffs. edmonton have reached the western conference funnel eliminating calgary and the process came 5 when to overtime after finishing for foreign regulation. euler's grab victory. thanks to connor with david, had mentioned booking a spot in the conference final for the 1st time since 2006 and in the east. the
