11:07 am
we got to know who has done where he was, where he is from, which group he's from. what i think this is a story which has been created and now they're trying to lead to the nation towards x toady. pope frances, a set to lead mass in contrast that within the next hour he's the 1st roman catholic, needed visits and mechanical public of congress to native the pope condemned to the suffering and exploitation taking place in many parts of the continent. nothing went before the pope's 1st stop in africa as the country with the largest roman catholic population, about half of congo, nearly 100000000 people. a members of the church pope frances was due to visit last year, but the trip was postponed because of a problem with his knee. tens of thousands of people lined the road from the airport to the city. the vatican had planned for pope fontaine to visit the
11:08 am
country's east, but it was dropped after the conflicts that escalated in recent month. i'll country with the fighting and all the problems we have today. we've received the pope and we believe in his blessing. the presence of the pope will bring peace and it will bring great things, not only for the catholic church, but for the entire country. the last pope to come here was john paul. the 2nd in 1983. the population has tripled since then. the arrival time, the why honors and the people on the bike his 1st thought was the presidential palace where he met felix chis. kennedy. elections do. later this year and jesse katy wants to run for a 2nd term. pope said the poles must be free,
11:09 am
fair and credible. he said greed is fueling conflicts, and the congo, the vast mineral wealth to these lands and the whole african continent continues to enjoy various forms of exploitation. and this is terrible. the poison of greed has made diamonds with blood. the poke, didn't say who he thought was responsible for escalating conflicts. president, she said carrie did. so my love that we had to stop this misfortune which has lasted for nearly 30 years. is that a part of our territory way, in addition to i'm groups, phone pals, gritty for the minerals to commit cruel atrocities with the direct and cowardly support of our neighbor. rwanda, me. rwanda is widely accused of backing the n 23 on the group in the east one that denies it the pope's due to spend 3 days in congo before traveling to
11:10 am
south sudan. malcolm web al jazeera can shatter democratic republic is called a are attending now to our top story here, 2 years since the co manager. let's take a look at the international response and bring in heidi how tyler. she is the vice president of the european parliament and also the chair of the international parliamentary inquiry on me on my she joined us now from brussels. a heidi, i believe the parliamentary inquiry assessors, what international actors are doing and couldn't be doing to end the violence. now, as the person heading the group, let me start by asking you what your thoughts are to that end because it feels to many like this is now becoming a forgotten conflict. i think erm erm the secretary general of the united nation. sir, mister gutierrez is quite right when he says that the international community has failed myanmar. and what we see after 2 years that the atrocities by the hunk eyes of the increasing and the hunter has no legitimacy as the representative of the
11:11 am
people any more. you're talking about the agenda there, but how broad is the conflict? now? there is so many armed groups involved ethnic militias. there's new people's defense force as well as the army. has that all meant more fighting in different areas? well, i would say that the, the democratic forces are joining or each other so that there there's, there's a very strong growing resistance against the atrocities by the homepage. and this means that the international community should take sides. we should not any more think that the military that, that my door is the legitimate representative of the people on the, on mark. on the contrary, we should understand that we should do everything to support the democratic forces . now, also encompassing some ethnic girl regional organizations who actually have quite good governance structures to help people. you mentioned the democratic group side, there's also a shadow administration made up of different ethnic groups and also supporters of young sons, u t. the national unity government or you as international act as
11:12 am
a you engaging with them? yes indeed. and, and the message from the international parliamentary enquirer was very clear that now it's time to do everything to support and give recognition and visibility to this national unity government. because they have the capacity to build a new, inclusive democratic myanmar in the future. so that's a very strong message from the, from us to the international community. and by the way, there will be this sham elections that their home based planning for august. they had no legitimacy, they should not be given any recognition at all. in due time democratic elections will appear if the international community was they on the side of the democratic forces. i'm just curious in your mind, how powerful is the shadow administration as you're engaging with them and that not everyone agrees how things should be run, whether it should work with people's defense for how to engage with the agenda. how likely is it to affect change then?
11:13 am
well, the thing is that them, for instance, in this old issue of verb of romania that the genocide against the romania is now getting recognition among the national unity government and the democratic forces that they also must there. take their responsibility and that they must them or build an inclusive for a multicultural, multi ethnic girl, or maybe federal myanmar in the future. so i would say that there, what are their shadow government thought that national unity government now needs is capacity building health. and that's what we assert parliamentarians in involved in this inquiry are calling for self capacity building so that they can govern. and i'm, i'm actually surprised to see that they are able to, to help people on the ground do to reconstruct their bombarded schools to, to help bird pregnant women, et cetera, et cetera. so it's quite an amazing ambrose of a democratic government. and despite the help though, the humanitarian situation remains dire,
11:14 am
and i'm wondering where you see this going. we've seen hundreds of thousands free the country. the border areas are also increasingly over, run by drugs and crime. the fighting is continuing. is there the international appetite to do anything, especially given me and ours relationship to beijing? well i, i definitely think that the, that the humanitarian assistance should be channeled through of ethnic regional organizations because they have the structures in place and they can help and deliver the aid to the people. but now the international community should understand that all the friends of the people of myanmar in the international community must come together and, and be, be tough against those who helped the whole doctor to send them arms and things like that. so m a, russia, china, and i would say that of the us, the on countries thailand is a bit on the, let's say, a city sitting on the fence. they should now also understand that they cannot continue to, to help the homepage, having been dealing with these international actors and seeing the amount of
11:15 am
interest so to speak, in the international community or, or lack thereof. are you optimistic that anything's actually going to change any time soon? i think that they're the 2nd anniversary of the military cool to day on the 1st of february 2023 is, is ace in our case. and it's an opportunity to, to, to bring the issue back to the international agenda. and i believe that the, the european union and its member states should now work very, very closely with us and as a regional organization to, to, to bring about the change of we should not let this so suffering and atrocities continue it. so it's been 2 years, it's very, very thoughtful for new on marque people. but i've never seen any resistance of this kind from the people side that we'd now see in myanmar. also young people. women play a very big role in this resistance. indeed, and we're seeing more protests today as well. heidi, how tyler, they're the vice president of the european parliament and also the chair of the international parliamentary inquiry on the and i thank you so much for joining us

11:20 am
in england and wales is opposing a proposed law that would require unions to provide minimum levels of service on strike days. more than a 100000 teachers are also staging the 1st strike in schools in england and wales for more than 6 years. they were given a 5 percent pay rise last year, but once and above, inflation increase of more than 10 percent. well out here as an indian baba is at the hatton school and special needs center in east london. he joins us now from their nadeem. i see no class this morning. i'm guessing well, it's a, it's a nuance picture because at this school it's a school for children with special needs. some children the most vulnerable are actually being taught on wednesday. we've seen buses going in, but as you can see behind me, there's a picket line. some teachers, members of the national education union are on strike, this national strike around england and wales and parts of scotland pushing as you
11:21 am
are saying for a pay rise which meets inflation. because over the years, according to one study between 20102021 the average teacher's salary actually dropped in real terms by 11 percent. for a bit more on the situation, i'm joined by some are a cameron a teacher here. some are a high, can you tell me about how long you've been teaching and what you've seen in terms of your salary meeting, the cost of living that we're teaching for 14 years. i've spent 2 years in special needs provision and the rest of it in mainstream. and actually over the period of time i've been teaching, i have seen things that really, really difficult. i think cut and, and i've seen a lack of little thin, thin and we'll see the teacher attention and teacher treatment. and actually because of their cost of living and the crisis that we're now in, it just means that our salaries are waited on stretching at all. and it's difficult and do what you are telling me that some teachers actually have another job. how
11:22 am
common is that? it's incredibly common, i myself had t jobs and either the last 5 years i've hattie try and balance at whacking this full time job. and obviously i like i have my lack lecture, alice and, and then hadn't also worked on the weekends just to make ends need say things are very, very difficult. and actually a lot of teachers are feeling. it's a lot to do with their mental health that they're mation of well being. it is suffering as a result. now, another unions are seen for the payroll to be fully funded because at the moment is up to schools to meet the 5 percent payroll. that was offered last. what are you seeing in terms of how much the, the, the financial situation is hitting your school? well, if schools have to fund the 5 percent, it does mean that cuts will have to happen. and that can be in the resort thing that can be and in terms of trying to get the electricity running through this whole full, do have to find that money and what it means is actually we don't have the teachers, we don't have the support staff and that can actually mean a lot for safeguard, and that can be a very, very became position that teachers put in because you've got
11:23 am
a class in to manage and you don't have necessarily the resources or the people teach you to do that. and, and actually again, it creates a stress top down from your management all the way down all throughout the school and sort of a roach dressed out as a result that we'll see lots of people beeping their horns as they drove past in support. some parents were hearing around the country are worried about the impact on their children's education. but what would your message be in terms of why you needed to strike? i think all of us are in the position where we care about our children. i've. i got into this job because i care about the education for them. i want children to have high quality education. and what we're trying to say today is we want the government to fully fund our pay, right. say that actually some of the stresses upon schools and are no longer stress so that we can focus on giving children the best education that they can possibly have. and so that's our message today. we want the children have high quality education and the government needs to fund that. thank you very much for your time
11:24 am

11:28 am
travel, millions of people during its 5 decade from the an reynolds has the end of an era in aviation. as the final, boeing $747.00 to be built was delivered to freight carrier atlas airlines. we all share in a deep admiration for today's guest of honor, the awe inspiring queen of the skies, glowing through a gala ceremony for the occasion. but it's a melancholy moment for aviation aficionados, i don't think is really anything quite as iconic as the 747. i think anybody who's a bad of aviation and it has any kind of soul, it can't help and shed a tear for this. a rather sad if inevitable moment, and as it slowly begin, when the 747 made it's made in flight in 1969, the aircraft size sleep design and highly advanced technology amazed travelers,
11:29 am
the nose for those who could afford it. the upper deck was an airborne island of luxury in free champagne. the upper deck was a thing of beauty. just still access through that staircase. p like you were in your own private, louder. but it wasn't just a jet for the jet set before the 747 long distance air travel was unaffordable. for most people, the new aircraft range and capacity changed all that. the engines were the 1st high bypass commercial engines in service, which meant their economics were so much better than previous generations of engines. and that really help get ticket prices. over the years. the $747.00 carried some historic passengers including ayatollah homemade. he's returned to iran from exile in 1979. and the nasa shuttle piggyback aboard a specially modified $747.00. an unforgettable sight in the sky here.
11:30 am
since 1990, the 747 has been the official plane of us presidents air force one. the aircraft was also involved in aviation histories deadliest disaster. in 1977 to 740 seven's collided on the runway of an airport on the spanish island of 10, a reef, 583 people were killed. advances in engine technology and development of lighter weight materials eventually caused most airlines to shift from larger aircraft like the 747 to smaller, more economical to engine jets like the air bus 320 and boeing 737. the remaining passenger models of the $747.00 will be phased out over the next decade. rob reynolds al jazeera. ah.
