9:04 pm
through or returning to the origins of the you on diplomacy. basing ourselves on the key principle of true democracy, the respect for the sovereign equality of states. i thank you. i know we've been listening to the russian for him and says 2nd level, but speaking at the united nations general assembly, let's bring in that christian slew me. she's also at the united nations and was listening in chris. there was a very hostile speech, wasn't it? it is accusing the west of gross grotesque, russia phobia absolutely . a great majority of the speech was directed at the united states, whom he called the self proclaimed master of the world. he talked about ukraine quite a bit, of course, and has accused ukraine of threatening russia, security and the united states of using ukraine to essentially get to russia. he
9:05 pm
had a long list of grievances against the united states. and whether it's referring to their refusal to listen to russia's concerns about what was happening in former soviet countries that he claimed russia had been trying to work with to the use of sanctions when he called a illegal use of sanctions as being a threat to development and countries around the world, he talked about the grain deal that was negotiated by secretary general, antonio gutierrez, and also to kiya as a way to get food and fertilizer out of ukraine and russia. he thank the secretary general for that, but accused the west of continuing to block russian fertilizer from getting out to market so that farmers around the world can plant crops. this is
9:06 pm
a concern that the united nations has. of course, western countries would argue that there sanctions are not blocking russia that the sanctions have been removed and that they have done their part to reassure business so that they can in fact deal with russia on this front. so a long list, as i said, of grievances from survey live rob here. ah, no mention of the referendum that russia is planning to hold in. parts of you came that it claimed that it controls and hopes to make part of russia. that's something that the united nations has condemned. also, just an angry attack at u. s. i. efforts here on the national international stage. what he calls a, giving up on multilateralism and i called for return to multilateralism. i'm good, good. so how much support, if any, has russia been getting at the un this week?
9:07 pm

9:08 pm
a neutral stand in this conflict. they did not support attempts to isolate russia in the general assembly back in february when a vote was taken to deplore the war there. so there is increasing concern that as this war, wages on it will have impacts negative impacts on the rest of the globe. or even if people are not in support of what russia is doing. christians, jamie join, is that from the united nations, thanks very much. now rushes push to annex for regions in ukraine has moved into a new phase a 2nd day of voting is underway and full occupied regions of ukraine. the ballot also where the areas should be annexed to russia, cave and as international allies have condemned the boats as a sham. they say the results are pre determined by moscow armed been reported to going to door to door to get people to participate. while the votes are taking

9:11 pm
people that are being asked to vote if they show they have rush and passports. they are immediately given their papers to join the russian military. so this is the scene that we're starting to get a picture we're starting get painted here. on the 2nd day of voting, russia said the plan for this voting to end on monday. when we expect, at that point, the russian election commission in moscow will presume if we start to release some sort of what they say will be results. more than 700 people across russia have been detained in protest against the criminal mobilization of military reservists. police of crackdown on demonstrates of the posing the army called call ups in petersburg and moscow. on wednesday, the criminal down 300000 of us will be sent to fight in ukraine. dozens of people protesting the mobilization of also been arrested in siberia. small protests were

9:16 pm
people attempting to depart, and the number of the party doubled from 21 to 20 to 20. and that's not the typical . if you computed from january to september 2022, that shows how desperate these people are in order to protect the families and to provide for them. it's believed that up to a 150 people could have been on board the overcrowded boat, nearly 50 of the bodies found are reported to have been of children. 11 tommy says it arrested a man who's confessed to being behind the attempt to smuggle the boat to europe. it wasn't the 1st, the rest of its kind. neither was the tragedy. in april, a migrant boat sank some 6 kilometers off the coast of lebanon, and dozens of people were never found. few expect the dangers and the security cracked down in lebanon to stop the exodus as long as living conditions were sent. a few days before the boat sank off,

9:19 pm
they can stop the nation. we've announced many times that of any one has a fair comment and we will listen to it. but anarchy disturbing national security is the security of people. no one i succumb to this so far though, the protest show no sign of dying down. oh, victoria gate and be al jazeera, china's foreign minister has reiterated his country's territorial claim to the island of taiwan. while he was addressing united nations general assembly, he told the audience that china and taiwan were inseparable on the job with judge on to mr. president and colleagues. since ancient times taiwan has been an inseparable part of china's territory. china's sovereignty and territorial integrity have never been severed, and the fact that the mainland and ty one have belonged to woman, same china has never changed. all chinese have never ceased in our efforts to

9:21 pm
a hard line conservative. he represents family values, he's against abortion. he is against the left wing ideals. he says, socialism, he's telling his borders that this country is at risk of becoming a communist state than the people we spoke. do certainly seem to believe it. now, as you mentioned, he is lagging behind in the polls, especially here in the state of how bol, as how fowler is the largest state in all of brazil that has the largest number of voters as well. and that means that it's key to try to up his support in this state is going to be another part of our baldo. throughout the day we understand and he will be having a debate on television, on one of the television stations or networks of brazil. but his rival, who was certainly a forced to be dealt with lewis the now sooner that's seen by the former social as president, will not be taking place part in that debate. however, just a short while ago, he held his own rally here in sal bower, and it also drew very,
9:22 pm
very large crowds. indeed, another very interesting part about this is how the people, when i asked them, why is president bush or not or lagging behind in the polls, and he is the savior of this country. they say that the polls have all been rig they simply don't believe it. they also don't believe that there's any way at all that will. so now don't good moves the selection despite what as again, with opposed to saying final rallies are being held in. it's lee head of a general election on sunday for the prime minister just epic on tape, told the crowd in room. the vote is a historic one opinion polls show. he's trailing a fall right coalition that by georgia, maloney indicate she could become the country's 1st female prime minister. stephanie decker is in rome. next is what's going on. ah, this is what italy's next government could look like if the poles are accurate. but it's really all about ga maloney thinkin only go through them all. we will build

a solid, cohesive government with a strong popular mandate which will remain in power for 5 years. ah, her right wing party brothers of italy is ahead in the polls indicating she could well become italy's 1st fema prime minister. and the 1st far right leader since benito mussolini is rise to power here. 100 years ago. maloney supporters gathered in rome's piazza than popular for the last rally before the elections deal. i given my support to this party because i love my country and judge maloney it will protect it. she will make laws to protect our youth, our ports, and the quality of life of italians who do deserve this finally, had been granted. we let me go. first of all, we need to regain a national identity that has been set aside for the good of europe. but this is not a real europe because we have lost our own identity. the on the center left, the democratic party led by the former prime minister and that he collector is
9:24 pm
pulling 2nd. but italy's coalition focus politics means the numbers are not in his favor of arguing of abu bucker's to morrow is part of that coalition. he came to italy as a student from the ivory coast in 1999 and is now running as a candidate to home. and it won't often damage alcorda dark wallabies on the 1st thing to worry about are the high bulls and that all italian families ever hotmail on the table. this is why we will bring the values of antithesis, um and, and theresa somewhat not to protect italian loan placeholder, but to project it towards the europe of rights and dignity. not particularly darla glass. if a chris a good answer for the snap election follows the resignation of technocrat prime minister mining draggy in july, internal politics put an end to his unity government that spot from left to right. one that maloney and her party never joined. successive governments have collapsed . elections are not the solution. elections are the confirmation of a deep crisis of the political system with these are key collections because

9:33 pm
savage. he's the mayor of halifax, and that's where he joined us from. thanks very much. take the time to be with us. what's the situation there? are you still feeling the effects of storm fiona? were we in our own area of halifax, the capital of nova scotia? we. the storm has pretty much patched through it was a wild night and morning here in halifax with a lot of destruction of trees, an apartment building with roof collapse. we had a lot of damage so far. we don't think there's been a lot of loss of life for injury, but there is close to facts north of us, really being his ard, and they're still assessing the damage and knew from the land north of nova scotia houses up and swept into the sea. so it's a very damaging store. there were evacuations, did everyone who needed to evacuate? do so in our area, everybody that needed to move out as moved out. where, of course, asking people to check on neighbors. still, you know, most,
9:34 pm
most places don't have power. my own house doesn't have power but it's becoming more manageable and the folks who are restoring power. ready working hard at it and so i think in halifax, perhaps the worst is fast, but in other parts of atlantic canada, the east coast, the storm continues against. what is the path, what is the trajectory as far as you know? well, you know, these storms traditionally come up from the caribbean, along eastern seaboard or united states. and traditionally they have stalled out as they hit colder weather and don't get regenerated this hurricanes. but with climate change in particular, and the volatility of weather these days, we've been getting more of these hurricane. so the, at this time was, it came up from the atlantic ocean disruptive, cross northern nova scotia, which leaded into printed with island, which is an island which has been hit hard cape breton island, which is part of mobile, social, and newfoundland, and labrador. so it's kind of,
9:35 pm
it's really had a direct shift on some, on some municipalities. and i was the biggest threat that these rooms that they pose while and east coast and really any coast, a coastal community storm search with, with a storm like this is amazing. you know, when you have winds up 150 kilometers on our end up, you get incredible storm surge on the coast. it does a lot of damage to coastal communities, to coastal infrastructure. that's a big deal. and of course, the other big damage you can do is to most vulnerable populations, people who maybe on house under house haven't been able to prepare for them. the storm fully. and the results can be quite. and is you saying that you be seeing more of these storms that the climate change is making these storms? what? how can we better protect against them from mitigation and adaptation. making sure that cities like ours are building and the proper places are not right on the
9:36 pm
ocean. making sure that we have nature based solutions, things like trees and bio swells and all that stuff which is very important. we, for example, in halifax, which is a city of both just under $500000.00. we have a very good climate action plan which looks at all the different things that we can do to prevent damage to the climate. and also to make sure that. ready we protect our natural surroundings as well so that there are things that communities can do. but at the end of the day, cities, in our case, provinces of the national government all have to work together on these things. recognize. ready problems understand what we can do about it, but also recognize that we are going to have to recover. there are going to be storms that are going to be going to be damage. and we're pretty resilient people on, on this in this part of the world and we will survive this. i'm sure you will, mike savage and halifax. thanks very much. thank you for now,

al jazeera is releasing the 2nd tranche of documents from the labor files, a substantial leak of internal papers from britain's main opposition party. documents reveal that a concerted campaign to undermine then lead a jeremy corbin, as based on misleading accusations from within his own party, fell race from our investigative unit reports. when jeremy corbin was elected leader of the labor party in 2015, he promised to shift in policy on the middle east. the continuing occupation. big mansion of illegal settlement on the imprisonment of palestinian children are an outrage. we will recognize a palestinian state as soon as we take open winter, amy corbin and the team leader we will so overdrawn. at last we have a western politician who actually sympathizes with the palestinians. oh said soon allegations emerged that he was
9:38 pm
a racist. the very existence of my party, the labor party, is out stay every races, anti same out out of the labor party. it's time for jeremy kobus that the labor files contain the entire contents of the parties disciplinary folders since 2014. we can see re all anti semitism, but then there is also a lot of information in these disciplinary files where there is clearly no anti semitism whatsoever. the files show the claims of anti semitism were repeatedly used to suspend corbin supporters, harrison. an example that says, we demand that international criminal court and the un chance benjamin netanyahu in israel for war crimes against humanity. to suggest that this is somehow anti semitic, is simply trying to avoid israel in called out for its appalling
9:39 pm
abuses in the occupied territories for the 1st 2 and a half years of his leadership. it was the party general secretary who corbin inherited in mcnichol, who was ultimately in charge of dealing with anti semitism cases. in 2018, corbin replaced mcnichol with an ally. jenny form be analysis of the data in the files tells a remarkable story. this graph shows the number of suspensions, investigations and expulsions from the labor party on grounds of anti semitism, all through the corban era. and vase is the moment when jenny form b becomes general. secretary of the labor party enabling jeremy colbin to take control of the bureaucracy of her labor works. after they took control, the number of investigations, suspensions and expulsions went up exponentially. under intense pressure,
9:40 pm
corbin then accepted a definition of anti semitism. that includes criticism of israel, pressure from pro israel support is continued until he was defeated in a general election in 2019 soon after new liter, secure, stormy, takes over his t meet with leading pro israel groups in britain. the files include minutes of the meeting which included the board of deputies of british jews, the board of deputies, a keen to counter suppositions from labor m. p 's. that because they're nominally committed to combating anti semitism that it gives them carte blanche to say what they like about israel. steve read a senior opposition minister replies that the labor party will never accept attempts to exception allies and de, legitimize israel. phil reese, al jazeera london, lesbian patch at diamond, his professor and public policy at queen mary university of london and former
9:41 pm
advised the labor party government, and attorney blay joins us now from london. get to have you with us until the content of these lakes surprise you in any way will it doesn't because it reveals just one mass, the labor costs you was in the period when jeremy corbin was leader. i mean, objectively you'd have to say that it sounds like a very difficult situation with rounds of expulsions, investigations, and party members. you just on the lines were difficult position may be, was in, in that period. but there was a concerted effort as appears to oust corbin and why was that while much there was a concerted efforts. it asked jeremy corbett in the sense that jeremy corbin stood in as late a leader in 2 general actions did quite well in 2017. but was then heavily defeated 2019 general election. that was the reason why he stood down as leader ultimately. um, so i'm not sure the ousting is necessarily the appropriate way of understanding it
9:42 pm
. except we have had reports in our investigations that there is. and when the deep state part, labor party officials, who really did not like labor and worked very hard to discredit him and his supporters well, in the periods of jeremy kobus leadership, there was a very fractious atmosphere in the labor party. i haven't seen the detailed cases being put forward in your investigation. what i do know is that in this period, the labor party seems to be in a mass which translated into a very poor performance in the opinion polls and subsequently in the 2019 election more seriously than that the labor party was no longer regard to the safe space, the jewish members, and not really impacted on the image and reputation of the party with the public and talk which historically had seen itself as the party. the quality was seen as a party afflicted by accusations bounty, semitism, that situation was untenable. so it's not surprising that were certainly criticisms
9:43 pm
of jeremy coping leadership, but do you believe that labor did have an anti anti semitism problem under corbin? well, it did because what happened was that the membership of the party had expanded enormously in that period. as you know, and this meant an influx fact this came in the party, some of them only some of them, but some of them from left organizations have historical links to causes and positions that certainly spinal county semitism. so as he is on the one in your report, perhaps be clear, clear up and has to be interventions including point the general secretary, the party, huge army corban, personally selected. but after a while we we dealt with it. it was or else with while there was an attempt to deal with it, how effective that was. obviously the investigations are still ongoing. i mean the party's in golf on these accusations, not to say, is greatly damaged. it's reputation with the public. i guess the question will keep
9:44 pm
coming back to is why with it's in gulf by these accusations of whether they were federal knows of course. and that was the process applying were cases heard, detailed investigations were on the way of the say, the big picture here is the labor party in this period was in turmoil. it was afflicted by accusations of anti semitism. there was a feeling that the jewish member's labor party was no longer se space. and for a party the found as a policy, this is just more tenable commission. so it's no surprise. and i think that you saw this fractious that we ought to know what was it that that made it so fracture because it wasn't just anti semitism that we've been hearing about. it was all sorts of policies that jeremy kobus stood for the really favored by many others in the party. i think to understand that question and it's
9:45 pm
a big question that you pose, you have to go back to the original lake, the leadership contest which army copeland was selected in 2015. and because of the electoral college system, labor party used him and the only very small minority of labor, i'm actually support jeremy corpus. and around 35 actually nominated him. so although he won support with a party members and therefore became leader, he never have the support of the parliamentary labor party. and i think that's one major reason why you saw this period of time on fractions missing conflicts. simply because a leadership party was not rec, consult with his parliamentary wing federico and wants to come back of the labor and page. i think he will well, that remains to be seen. he wants to be the candidate. think as things stand, he won't be. there's no question about that, so i think it's going to be very difficult for him. i think the like the ponies, me don't, is moved away from the coban era in terms of its policies in its programming style, optimal needs all. now, that seems bright, clear as for the parties concerned,
9:46 pm
patrick diamond could speak to him. thanks joining us for london. thank he. well, you can, what's a full investigation called the labor files at the crisis which investigates allegations of racism in the labor party at 20 g m t here on out as era as africa is in the middle of an electricity crisis. the country is facing unprecedented blackouts with the state power company, cussing of electricity for up to 8 hours a day. for the problem is aging and neglected infrastructure. but there may be a glimmer of hope as hermitage or reports. so, you know, turning off, there is no electricity again, but this time poor motto has a back up plan, a solar charging unit that makes with the light, stay on and some plugs in her house work. my mother, she's been cheap since she's using they injections too

but these kind of solutions of, of the good, these, the only way to go currency as we are we that our infrastructure solutions currently in terms of what we have in south africa would not be able to handle handle hybrid solutions like been on the grid and off the grid. planned outages had been implemented countrywide, known as locating it's when the state power company switches off electricity at certain times of the day to take pressure off the national grid. south africa used to generate surplus electricity even selling to neighboring countries. now people are being told to use power sparingly until a long term a viable solution is found. energy sake to analissa, generating sufficient supplies of electricity for or south africans, or take time, possibly years. getting as many households as possible, connected to alternative and affordable energy sources could be a bitter and faster solution. hardware task out there, dennisville. at least 36 people have died in northern india as it was battered by
