sydney's last piece of the berlin wall abandoned in a warehouse for decades this piece of history is now on topic just. 501 free glad you could join me a victory for the head of germany's governing conservatives anika to contact about i managed to head off a rebellion at her party conference yesterday warning delegates that she would resign if she did not get their full backing well that a standing ovation come caraballo took over from chancellor angela merkel as c.d.u. leader last year but the party's popularity has continued to slide under her leadership. she went all the way and took on the challenge after several attacks in the weeks to. to the c.d.u.
sponte conference and a great. post the big question to her party colleagues and leipsic. many of them i know if you feel that the road i want to go down is not the road you want to follow then let us talk about that today and let those and it today here and now today. how did the 1000 delegates react with this 7 minute standing ovation continuing 190 minute speech the party leader passionately our the policy measures she wants to pursue in the future. isn't enough to be the repair service of the republican we need to become the workshop of the future again that's our goal and that's what we want to do one time in my mind one of those in the audience was fleet ice melts revival that has attacked a k.-k. several times in recent weeks this time he seemed surprisingly loyal under compound
. a.k.k. gave a strong courageous and forward looking speech this morning. peter god darfur so we are very grateful to her for that thank you via zend we are loyal to our chairwoman to our party leadership. and to the federal government chancellor angela merkel who has passed on the party leadership to come no longer takes part in these debates she used her opening speech to talk about more personal issues often because i thought of amazon today is also a very special day for me my own fault because on november 22nd 2005 i was elected german chancellor for the 1st time and this remains something very special to me. is on the walls for me. political child and they couldn't come. is giving it all at this year's conference and so far she is one at least for now.
and our chief political editor me had a cafe is standing by for us in the east and german city of lights the at party conference good to see taking all the party conference one of the big topics what's going on there now. already the over arching issue was for an affair to come to avoid some kind of clash some kind of so down scenario with the man who lost against turn last year's vote for the party leadership she did that on the 1st day and on the 2nd day also a motion by the youth organization you're on your own didn't go through which called for a grassroots vote on who would take the party as chancellor candid into the next elections which are scheduled in 2 years' time so she avoided that particular cliff as well because that would have weakened her claim to become exactly that candidate
and then have a chance to become america's successor in the chancery if the c.d.u. wins and that's that's still an if because the party is in a downward trend and so her opinion polls have ratings and now she has to prove that she can turn that trend around both personally for her and for the c.d.u. and if she doesn't then we might well be back to square one in a couple of months from now but here let's talk about all of this because. she has got the support of merkel but at the same time her legacy looms large so what will became apparent here the c.d.u. where she was the representation of the cd use governmental role leading the government with the social democrats but at the same time she is a living political legend and there's no way that an eclipse can really escape that at the same time we've seen a lot of new tone coming from a k.k.k.
as she is known calling for more proactive role for germany also meaning more military involvement that's a no go for angle america right now particular that coalition and we see a german chancellor who's clearly looking. the e.u. presidency of germany in the 2nd half of 2020 she wants to deliver german stability through that process and that's why she's becoming much more into an international politician and completely leaving it to her own party to say what the c.d.u. will stand for in the future she also got a bit of criticism here she's adamant that way the chinese technology provider shouldn't be ruled out immediately from competing for the 5 g. network here in germany. the per party certainly wants to see that debated in the german parliament will see what comes about and reporting on all of it for us our
chief political editor mr. party conference at leipsic thank you. now some of the other stories making news around the world a car bomb in a turkish held border town in northern syria has killed 9 people a monitoring group says 2 children were among those killed there was no immediate claims of responsibility. british comedian and actor sasha baron cohen has accused facebook of spreading disinformation and amplifying hatred by running political ads without fact checking now baron cohen said that if facebook had existed in the 1930 s. hit that would have been able to post anti semitic ads on the social media site. in japan foreign ministers from the g 20 group of nations are holding their last day of meetings they've been discussing international trade and global governance as want to say they will development goals south korea and japan have also announced
that they will continue an intelligence sharing agreement that was set to expire. now in france activists in paris and around the country are taking to the streets to not against domestic violence $136.00 women have been killed by their partners this year in france this year alone now the country has one of europe's highest rates of domestic violence in today's demonstrations were taking place just 2 days before french president. unveils a new measures of a new raft of measures which are meant to tackle the problem. and for more on this now i'm joined in the studio by a man who has shows who's been following the story for us good to see you a man who has so it's interesting to note that protesters have taken to the streets ahead of this raft of measures that are meant to be set out in a few days' time i mean why is that one of it just goes on to show how worried they are that does measures won't simply won't be enough because i demand
a government doesn't do enough to taco days domestic violence so let me just to just take 136. women where kids since the beginning of the year in france it was victims of domestic violence and it is estimated at a quarter of 1000000 women in friends are in a dangerous situation and the government hasn't tackle that issue so far that's why . they've built over a year ago the movement which means all of us haas been created it is a gathering of 20 feminist organizations and they're actually fighting to denounce those domestic violence is and of wonder governments simply to do more certainly very concerning numbers. and of course this is an issue which so often happens behind closed doors with that in mind what then is the government planning to do about it well there has been a huge public inquiry launched by the government 7 months ago to try and tackle dish and so there has been much publicized visit of
a man to the police forces to see how * there was they were reacting to domestic abuse calls then it was quite worrying to see for example the people the dispatchers receiving the calls and being in a situation a victim blaming of distrusting someone words so the government has much to do to address that and one of the measures that has been discussed so far would be to attack 0 to prevent gun ownership when people it was a history of domestic violence however we know that domestic violence can take many for me to carry more violence in could be someone who beats someone up i mean it's not just it's not just about a gun it's about a much wider issue absolutely not all of this of course it comes with the backdrop of the me too movement against sexual abuse sexual harassment at the same time their movement hasn't really taken off in france why is that well let's say to say
there's a culture in france of victim blaming a victim as shaming if you go into the back in time when them in dominic's to. khan was accused of rape in new york the 1st reaction in france to a wider reaction was out of disbelief i owed this man he was you know he was on track to become france's next president and there was 2 like people who pitted to man and not to do major had been raised and when you see 1000 items such as getting to know for example advocating the freedom of being a importunate that's what she's saying then that puts a lot of victims up triss government of being trusted of being seen as people making up stories just to be in do news and so there's that whole culture of that that needs to be tackled not only in france but as far in europe recently you so the actress added and there who who claimed to have been raped when she was a teenager by sexually abused by oh when she was a teenager by
a famed director and she kind of opened. she kind of opened a new way of expressing what happened and today people are taking to those chase 2 days before the government will unveil does measures just to show that thousands of people are concerned about what's happening right now in france absolutely just so much work which still needs to be done in france internationally of course is where the money would shift thank you very much indeed. well earlier this month germany marks 30 years since the fall of the berlin wall while much of the wall was destroyed after $989.00 pieces of it and now found all over the world including as far away as australia will this huge slab here when it made its way down and where it ended up sitting abandoned 3 years but it's now been given a new home a parking in a sydney where it was unveiled to the public at a ceremony on saturday. but the back story of this piece of wool is as quirky as it is mysterious here's more now from sydney. you know how to cuff loosely
translated everyone is powerful 30 years ago people power helped bring down the building wall and this piece of it ended up in sydney but that decades it sat forgotten in a warehouse the german businessmen who rented space for it here disappeared leaving his 3 tonne memento behind warehouse manager raymond couldn't track him down all find anyone else who wanted to tank it. but you know i just had a very simple stipulation you can have it free of charge just pay for the transport . people seem interested and come and see. us here or there but then when it came to it just no one seemed to be interested in going through and taking it but earlier this year a new i know was found online a logistics firm with german times then they moved the war for free to its new home in a park outside the sydney office of the german cultural organization go to institute
a reminder now of peace and human rights i think what's most important is that i remember that freedom and human rights and speak if they are not for granted so we really have to remember history and we have to think about like. yeah and obviously . that the fall of the war was i mean everyone thought the military would go away but it was a peaceful revolution that brought it out and people have the power the ministry of the walls the regional are in a has also been solved jennifer kubiak recognise the wall in a recent media report she posed in front of it as a child it belonged to her late father peter though jennifer says when he died in 2013 so too did the exact story of the wall and why he left it. finally out in the open again the wall stands as a permanent memorial to the end of division half a world away in berlin. this is
