12:08 pm
we should understand that we should do everything to support the democratic forces . now also encompassing summer ethnic girl. and regional organizations who actually have quite good governance structures to help people. and, and the message from the international parliamentary inquiry 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. it, what are the 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 so 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 to, to reconstruct their bombarded schools to, to help bear pregnant women, et cetera, et cetera. so it's quite an amazing embroil of a democratic government. and by the way, there will be this sham elections that,

12:11 pm
a building being collapsed and they're giving good the name, offices and bomb. and then number 2, as the building collapsed. i guess when you watching the television till about 45 minutes, we couldn't even get where the blast have taken place. but in the next 15 minutes, we got to know wisdom where he was, where he is from rich group. he's from what i think this is a story which has been created and now they're trying to lead the nation towards that story. a black man who died at the hands of us police officers will be laid to rest. later on wednesday, the family of terry nichols gathered at a church in the city of memphis on the eve of his funeral, to call for police reform. they were joined by community and religious leaders, their well 5 offices have been 5 and charged for the fatal beating of nickels on january the 7th. hey,

12:14 pm
a sign of how literal has changed since then. john 100 reports now from chicago and warning. you may find some images in his report distressing at protest after protest in the united states in recent years, activists have insisted they won't be fooled again. why do you want it now? many thought they'd seen progress now the fatal police beating and tiring nichols in memphis. has many questioning whether they've made any headway at all in stopping police brutality against african americans. i thought this was over with after george floyd, i really do is the head of black lives matter in lake county, illinois. clyde macklemore. no wide eyed optimist. had found new hope in recent years, but one incident after another, his dashed in the state of policing has not changed us. jim crow, this is, it was in about 7 black police officers. it was about policing in this country.
12:15 pm
each incident bears the name of a black victim from the deadly police, choking of george floyd in minneapolis to the crippling shots, fired into the back of the surviving jacob blake and consortia, wisconsin. the memphis assault was so ferocious, it reminded many of the brutal $991.00. los angeles police beating of rodney king also captured on video. since then, police have grown more militarized, but they're also more monitored. there has been progress and holding police accountable for misbehavior through technologies that record what they do at the scene. there's not been progress on the street toward repairing the fracture relationship between black urban america and police officers. last year, police killed nearly 1200 people in the us,
12:16 pm
according to the nonprofit group mapping police violence more than in any year. in the past decade in black americans made up 26 percent of them, though they make up just 13 percent of the population across the country. it's not just communities energy moralize. it's also the police themselves here in chicago over the past year. they've up recruitment efforts, bringing and 950 new officers, but it's still well short of the 1000 and more who's left. once again in chicago, new york, los angeles, and now in memphis across the us, demonstrators are lamenting the depth of another black man at the hands of police. reevaluating the state of civil rights in america, john henry and al jazeera chicago are still ahead here on algebra. class is curtailed and the u. k. as teachers join the countries and biggest coordinated strike action in a generation ah

12:18 pm
a cold snap starts to move in, bringing some wet and windy weather to the likes of tasmania as well as victoria. now as you hop across the tasman to new zealand, further flooding in oakland, we are expecting that rain however, to shift its way further south. some morning still out for the bay of plenty on thursday. the heavy rain massing in the very south. we will start to see it work its way to middle parts of the south island, but christ church the some warmth at $31.00 degrees celsius. ah, african story from african perspective. if conditions select one that is cuz you with one and the 5th sample. short documentaries, from african filmmakers for booking a fast filled and head. for me it's really important to teach the present comes and
12:19 pm
build something that i can be proud of. the paint it and she hand africa directs on algebra. ah ah, hello. they are watching out a 0. i'm the stars yet a here and do ha, let's remind you of our top stories. thousands have turned out to watch per francis that lead a mass in the congolese capital. kinshasa is the 1st roman catholic leader to visit democratic republic of congo since the 1980s. he will have been demonstrating outside manners, embassy in bangkok to market 2 years since the military seized power rights groups see nearly 3000 people have been killed since the can. and in pakistan,
12:20 pm
a committee has been formed to investigate security lapses that lead to a suicide bombing inside a mosque in a police compound. more than a 100 people were killed in monday's attack. well, the u. k. that largest coordinated strike action in a generation is getting underway there on wednesday, up to half a 1000000 train and bus drivers, civil servants, university lecturers and security guards are all expected to walk out and disputes overpaid jobs and working conditions. the trade union congress that represents most trade unions in england and wales is opposing a proposed law that would require unions to provide minimum levels of service even on strike days. more than a $100000.00 teachers are also staging the 1st strike in schools and england. and wales for more than 6 years now they were given a 5 percent pay rise last year, but once and above, inflation increase of more than 10 percent. let's be to out here as an indian barber, he is at the hatton school and special needs santana east london. he joins us now from there, the deem, as we've been saying,
12:21 pm
not quite class as usual there this morning. no, it's a mixed bag, but according to the national education union who have organized this strike, which is affecting schools across england and wales or perhaps 85 percent of schools impacted with one in 7, they predicted actually closed on wednesday or rising to one in 4 here in london, this school is actually open for the most vulnerable children. it's a school for a primary school for kids with special educational needs and talking to the, the teachers here, the issues at the same as, as elsewhere it's, but firstly, pay being able to keep up with the cost of living according to one survey between 20102021, or the teachers generally had a, a, an 11 percent pay cut because of in flacier. but it's also other issues. they're talking about retention. so many teachers deciding to leave because of the, the,
12:22 pm
the gripes with pay. and that puts more pressure on existing teachers and then they're calling for a fully funded pay rise in line with inflation, which means they want the government to pay for it. because last year's offer, a 5 percent has to come out of school budgets. and of course, that then limits what the schools like this can offer in terms of services, in terms of equipment and so on. we've heard of schools having to decide to turn off the, the heating and in some situations. now the government insists that it is negotiating, but in the last couple of hours the any use general secretary had said that's not true. where is the education secretary? they've been asking saying that this didn't need to happen if there were serious talks on pay. i want nadine with or thing not as a teacher walking at survey. so how is the broader strike actions across the country been affecting things that well, this is
12:23 pm
a very unusual situation for this country. we've got the hats, half a 1000000 public sector workers out on strike on wednesday. so not just teachers, not just education, but as before, the rail sector hit with train services affected as they have been drastically. in recent weeks, we've seen previously a workers at various and rail companies. now it's the train drivers are on strike a but other transport. her areas like bosses, we've got people at board of force, which could effect her services at airports, earth, other civil servants, right across the country than various sectors out in a coordinated m are action. if you like. the government says there is simply no money to me. all of these demands, let alone try to give everybody in those sectors or a pay rise. that is in line with double digit in flash. and they also suggest that that could fuel inflation further. the union say that that's nonsense and that they
12:24 pm
really are, are fed up with the government not offering a decent in their view, pay rise, which will keep people in their professions. largely the public has been sympathetic towards these strikes. the government probably thought that that might drop off. we've seen some signs of that in the the rail strikes, although a majority or rather are almost half in the last pope was still sympathetic. but generally in particularly the teachers strike backed by a lot of the public. who of course see what it's what, what the cost of living is doing in terms of the the service offered. uncle nadine bother across our strengths for us in east london. thanks, anthony. now u. s. defense secretary lloyd austin is in the philippines to discuss deploying more american troops and positive efforts to deter china's increased military activity there in the south china sea. u. s. forces have also been helping the

12:26 pm
clear that these extremes are happening with increasing intensity and frequency. we cannot continue to use fossil fuel to the way we do. climate change is increasing the energy in our atmosphere in wise that we have never seen. so no records will be able to say once in a generation anymore, it will be happening increasingly. so we're talking every year having a one in 100 year event. this kind of thing is now going to be happening. it is not any longer possible to say once in a generation, the increase in action is quite exponential in my experience of 10 years in the i p c. c. we are now seeing dramatic shifts in action. everybody is lining up to do something. we've still got the recalcitrance, particularly in the gas oil and call industries that want to keep producing more.
12:27 pm
but all of the businesses that are signed up for net 0 as saying, no, you will not get anything from us any more. you must move on, the world is changing. and certainly it's a very big political issue now in every election in australia and new zealand. this is, this is happening around the world. all an underwater volcano has erupted off the van of water archipelago in the south pacific ships and aircraft have been warned to avoid the area about 70 columns. there's no for the capital port. viola clouds, an ass and debris, had been seen rising above the east at the volcano. notes unami has been detected. american actor alec baldwin, has now been formerly charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of a cinematographer on a film set back in 2021. helena hutchins died after a gun pointed at her by baldwin was fired at during the filming of the western rust,

12:29 pm
and as it slowly begins to ruin, the 747 made it's made in flight. in 1969, the aircraft size sleep design and highly advanced technology. amazed traveler only knows 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 back. over the years, the $747.00 carried some historic passengers, including ayatollah homogeneous returned to iran. from exile in 1979 and the
12:30 pm
nasa space shuttle piggybacked aboard a specially modified 747. an unforgettable sight in the sky. 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.
