2:18 am
emissions the largest amount recorded in a single year. while elizabeth with beauty is a climate activist and the founder of the green generation initiative, she's urging everyone to take the step scientists have recommended to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. i find the latest that are very terrifying and especially they're built on the implications. because the phone is very clear that you have to cut the emissions and that's the number emissions by 45 lessons in this be kid. but again, the emissions continue to rise in we are almost the warming of 3 degrees. and this is going to be really got the traffic for me just like mine that are already facing the watson of the climate crisis. and for a young class. and like we were spend time with community like losing what g county in karen who are facing prolonged job the rest cost for a to bring if he wants to stay. and i think it's really wanting me to think that she's only going to be a chocolate for them. and this is
2:19 am
a come to that depends on 80 percent of their mosley coming from lifestyle. but i so the lifestyle dying and i saw people who have lost hope for the future and they're desperate because they impartially continue to rise. i think this is happening because it fails to be in concrete steps. that fancy must take opposition groups and the democratic republic of congo, calling for the government to cut and diplomatic ties with ruined, protest have been taking face in the colonies capital constructor. they say the one that was supporting the m $23.00 rebel group that's fighting congolese forces in the east. the violence there is being driven by thousands of armed groups and is complicated by national and ethnic rivalries. where chris sees a journalist and research on conflict security and democracy in central africa. he says there needs to be a peaceful resolution to the conflict. the 1st goal is the fact that the strategy under use of congo has been defined for very kinshasa based perspective. iran to,
2:20 am
to get it, do not know very well the complexity of the conflict and, and use of congo. the 2nd thing is that the options, jordan were very militarized, this data of emergency inviting your gun and troops our military solutions. well, we could have had a more community based approach to working on the reinforcement stage, working on the dialogue between communities so that, that has been very, very difficult and residential to kids under a lot of pressure of time because of the elections to which are forthcoming and of course, it is in the context of bad relationships and especially between, between the neighboring countries. so we have been hoping that the multilateral institutions could provide a framework of context where people could talk,
2:21 am
especially when google was joining east african community where run and you are already a member of. and then when we seen, you see at this moment that it's not really working. personally, i'm hoping for an initiative of regional leaders in booze moved to natural framework, which can allow gwin randa to deal with this in a non violent non violent way. the sonnets of the americas is set to take place in los angeles. on monday, leaders will need to discuss regional issues, but the event has been crowded by threats of a boycott. after the white house decided to exclude at cuba, venezuela and nicaragua, or latin america, added to loosening as well. once every 3 years, leaders from all over the americas meet at the only gathering where all $36.00
2:22 am
countries sit at the same table. the summit of the americas, but less than a week before president joe biden is supposed to host his regional peers in los angeles. it's still unclear who'll turn up neither mexico, they leave, i threatening to boycott the summit. he after biden decided to exclude cuba, nicaragua and venezuela are doing. they don't meet the required democratic credentials. you know, you didn't, in the richer, no one has the right to exclude anyone. how can you call it a summit of the americas? where are the excluded countries from another continent and other galaxy, another planet? what a mala, honduras, and the caribbean countries as of block are also threatening not to attend wild, many of those who will plan to protest the reasons very mexico's president lot. before we have on, for example, says that this is a matter of respect to a national sovereignty. while here in chile president gabrielle bodied says that ice and nation and sanctions don't work. and instead calls for dialogue and
2:23 am
engagement with the leaders who are accused of human rights violations, saying that they must be brought to the table and brought the task face to face. for fun, this year's agenda focuses on reaching a region wide agreement on migration. but with mid term elections around the corner biden doesn't want to antagonize conservatives by inviting leaders from countries that are viewed as authoritarian. i think by the needs president, blocked the ssl rather to come. because mexico is the most important partner the united states, in terms of trying to control the flow of migrants. but by ignoring regional demands for an all inclusive summit, washington is undermining the summit agenda. the exclusion of some other countries will mean that that issue will be centerpiece, primarily in the discussions among presidents. the failure to engage to properly
2:24 am
engage with latin american countries is going to be costly for bathing. unfortunately, for the u. s. other countries do see latin america as a priority, particularly china. so i think the only one celebrating their way this summer is goin is china cuban venezuela. now say they won't go to the summit, even if invited a last minute face saving deal that may allow loper saw gravel road and the others to attend. but the damage may be done with many arguing that a precious opportunity to work with the united states as a partner has been squandered. to see a newman al jazeera santiago, a star studded concert has been held in central london, what's been described as the platinum party at the palace. his latest event in 4 days of celebrations at marking at queen elizabeth 70 year reign, hold brennan, as the mile leading to buckingham palace was already busy with well wishes. and
2:25 am
sightseers from early afternoon union jack flags everywhere. this family came from gloucester to enjoy the festivities. i think for me it's because of a, something that my children are never going to experience. so it certainly is such a historical thing that needs to be hunting. and among the crowd, one or 2 who have actually met the queen. i not necessarily the queen. i've been the ambassador of the democratic republic of congo in this country. i met the queen more than 10 times in my life. every time when i come back to her, she remember all the things we did all we we we, we spoke fixed mouth before and day she come back as he was yesterday, basking in warm sunshine down here on the mountain. central london. the celebrations were the queens platinum jubilee rocha kind of sense of national well being that since a world away from the day to day problems of high energy costs in the war in ukraine,
2:26 am
the monarchy has its supporters and indeed its critics. but the power of occasions such as this, the appeal across all walks of life the party at the palace was staged on especially constructed 360 degree platform. right in front of the queen's london home, buckingham palace, 22000 ticket holders got the close up view, but thousands more were watching and listening from the surrounding parkland and millions more on television. 2 and a half hour concert in honor of the queen, 70 years as a you case head of states. ah. the queen herself was never expected to attend to the concert her public appearances increasingly limited by physical frailty and mobility problems. none the less the attributes to her were heartfelt and sincere 70 years you have worked so incredibly hard,
2:27 am
not just to the people of this country, but for the whole commonwealth. where does the castle is barely 20 miles away? so if we cheer loudly enough, she might, might just hear. so let's oh join together. in the mid to celebration, i'm a sense of historic occasion. there is the realization of this jubilee is likely one of the last opportunities to celebrate the reign of queen elizabeth during her lifetime. for brandon al jazeera london, on of africa's at biggest jazz festivals, has kicked off in senegal, where the kobe 19 restrictions lifted hunters. the tourists have been able to travel to the event. nicholas hack reports from the senegalese island of sanders
