a launch system warns good edges when the massive mammals are headed their way. but 1st we go to hong kong where protesters use blank pieces of paper to symbolize the suppression of freedom of expression. the fate of a small 1106 where kilometer corner of china was determined by opium. it was here in the 19th century that the british manufactured the drug and sold it to china. the chinese emperor tried to stop the opium trade but the british increased pressure attacked china and occupied hong kong. in the years that followed treaties were signed the granted the british 99 years of rule over hong kong. during those years they grew into a financial metropolis in 1907 the leasing agreement expired and the british handed hong kong over china agreed that the so-called administrative region was to remain autonomous. for 50 years but then beijing began to intervene politically and more

and more members of the pro-democracy movement began taking to the streets. in 21000 the situation escalated and more than a 1000000 hong kong residents took part in protests originally the demonstrations were against a proposed extradition law and then turned into opposition to the influence of china's communist party but now a new national security law has silenced the demonstrators. a lot has changed in hong kong you can see it on the streets it used to be that many can't these in restaurants exhibited post it notes with pro-democracy sayings written on them now the notes are all blank it's the same for a cafe owner dixon the blank poster is the new form of protest written political statements are now too risky. the police could put the national security law into effect. just being
5:33 am
accused could lead to arrest and imprisonment. demonstrators holding up blank signs overnight political opinions have become dangerous in hong kong. as soon as the new national security law was instituted the 1st arrest came a young man with a flag demanding hong kong's independence. just in the last few weeks 10 people were arrested under the new law. no one knows which political slogans are still about. who should be left going to see although they eventually leave people guessing is that they will be more who has and less willing. to speak out and them and that maybe. we'll see most. public libraries and school libraries are now being. forced to remove books that
5:34 am
aren't following the party line. books by democracy activists have already vanished. most teachers are just heartened but resistance could cost them their job. many in hong kong won't express their criticisms in public. we see dots. freedom of speech freedom of press or. freedom of publication also. strict city prohibits are controlled by the gulf and one we are free to its cultural worth ruining your come back to a home call. to strengthen your sons 3. the younger generation has been especially involved in the pro-democracy movement now schools are being targeted by beijing so called security law. even statements that teachers make in private are being
5:35 am
monitored. there you receive the compression on teachers or their political opinions or and social performance the ones lost their school tour for us to kerry's or you from o'keefe warning to teachers and all of these we see that it's. your stock routes through for and for all before the atmosphere at schools has changed according to these students cake and k.f.c. they use the nicknames because they don't want to be recognized a month ago cakes music class chose the song glory to hong kong for a class project the song had become a him in the protest movement in the past year and a viral hit. students in schools and universities developed it made a video and then spread it on social media it was often sung at pro-democracy demonstrations.
5:36 am
but cake's music teacher paid a high price for making the song a subject of the school exam she was fired. all toy i'm one of the students the president of the song and music class so i think we are now i feel guilty. oh you know what he's i'll call you the teacher was fired because about song. i never thought it would have such terrible consequences what a whole the thing that angers cake in k.f.c. the most the reason given for firing the teacher was that teachers shouldn't influence their students but patriotic songs praising china's communist party are allowed in the school. so i think. you all know the song without the communist party there would be no new china is not defined as
5:37 am
a political song. why should glory to hong kong be considered a political song. cake and k.f.c. want to continue their protest the 14 and 16 year olds can't accept have a new law has already changed their lives of free hong kong no longer exists in the same streets where a 1000000 people march to defend their rights in security and fear are now the new normal. fortunately in other parts of the world people can make their voices heard on the street. all around the globe millions are demonstrating against racism. the dehumanization of people with dark skin has occurred since time immemorial it was either. used as
5:38 am
a justification for slavery for some it's hard to believe that these prejudices are still so entrenched in people's minds how can we get rid of them. oh i can't breathe the last words of george floyd his death sparked protests around the world including in germany. i live and experiencing racism makes you feel powerless even the time race is a historical relic discredited as a biological concept shots and us from detroit to. being black in germany means having to constantly justify your humanity on every level. last year there was a 10 percent increase in racist incidents in germany $1176.00 in total so i result for a country like germany which is forever boasting about its democratic credentials
5:39 am
not good enough. examples of every day racism being asked where do you come from being addressed in english all the time not being recognized as a citizen of germany being stared at a steady hum of hostility that never goes away that's hard to pinpoint. their concert wasn't origin. racism in germany is very subtle. didn't defective micro aggressions is very underestimation just. every time a black person or a person of color leaves their homes experience hundreds of incidents of racism had something really. big. does the musts symptoms i did deeply rooted problem by and large racist attitudes in germany are attributed to individuals a matter of personal prejudices but in fact there are. clear evidence of structural
5:40 am
racism across the science. stuff of science starts with ignorance of the existence for decades of black germans and their kind tyo not seen as belonging to the population. as it covered this because of course that's harsh of germany's structural racism is the way we're made invisible friends . philosophers haydel and can't shape the age of enlightenment but to them human rights were white rights in the 1900 century south west africa was colonized by the german empire its people subjugated. their race based nuremberg laws designed to protect german blood were introduced in 1935 according to the right citizenship law a citizen was only someone descended from germans a becomes as it will trash the last option as i can imagine the germans are tired
5:41 am
of having to keep addressing their history but there's no way around it and restore your own deep there has to be a willingness to dig deep into this very bloody marcie passage just after the 2nd world war many african american g.i.'s remained in germany and started families it was an opportunity for germany to become a more diverse society but these children were often ostracized and many women were forced to give their children up for overseas adoption west germany wasn't ready to become less white while communist east germany flew in contract workers from socialist african countries such as mozambique only to eventually send them back many chapters in it's history explain why black people don't feel at home in germany mainstream culture is white culture and most of the population is unaware of its white privilege. then i didn't. call the state of being happy law and the
5:42 am
middle class of society and people on the left have understood that racism is bad but they see it as a right wing problem and they think they themselves are anti racist and that's all that can be expected it just as. there is now fresh debate about how gemini reflects on its races fast but again this tackles the symptoms not the root cause is simply expunging the word race from germany's basic law one to eradicate racism and white people need to realize it's not just a problem for black people and me expressing sympathy is nowhere near enough. with counseling it's vital that criticism of racism is built into the education system more to pick up information multipliers education is racism and discrimination are issues that need to be part of their training community.
5:43 am
we need control mechanisms for institutions independent control mechanisms for the police for schools sure this is some good some good racism is a problem for society as a whole no one can ignore us. all persons shall be equal before the law declares article 3 of the german basic law it's a promise that germany needs to deliver on once and for all. they need firewood to call fields to harvest food and a place to live. in india 1300000000 people need every bit of space they can get. in the last 20 years 18000 square kilometers of forest have been cleared to accommodate the expansion of cities. and settlements

5:45 am
a message he received in time helped him avert a major disaster on his plantation. a week ago i got an alert message saying there is an elephant in the stadia one of my laborers was in the paddy feed he did not have a phone so i called someone else who alerted him they live and was right there he screamed and the liberal was able to escape if not for this morning he would have been there to get into my. house on district where to do my lap or lives as some of the largest populations of wild asian elephants in india live mostly in the plantations monocultures and paddy fields around the town's conflict with humans began to get serious around the 1970 s. when this district that used to be largely forest began to become urbanized the forest is now highly fragmented and largely replaced by human habitation. shien's.

knowledge opens up blundered into the villages up by lawyer and roman army villagers please be vigilant please be vigilant. the forest department must stay on their toes to keep elephants in humans out of conflict. krishnan is part of n.c.f. a conservation organization that has been working in the area since 2015 to develop technology led solutions to alert locals of elephants present as a gentle way of ensuring no lives are lost on either side. in this study area that have been about home and that's in the last 10 years. and most of them more than 60 percent of the people know that they don't have any

his voice messages as well as digital display boards and alert lights. because of these interventions. in the last one year. which has happened in the along. the state forest departments record response teams supports n.c.s. efforts. this group of 48 people is mostly locals who have been trained by the forest department to physically track the elephant herds so that there was constant updated information about their locations. the integrated communication system is brought about a broader change to the relationship people an elephant shared there. i would say
5:49 am
the most remarkable change that i would see. after repeatedly interacting with them. i think it's. because they have. their. system is helped reduce conflict in district but as more forest land is set aside for development the future of human elephant coexistence remains fragile.

on. scene from a distance it's breathtaking our blue planet. and although it has an imbalance of water only one percent of it is suitable for human consumption. despite this scarcity people are often wasteful with a precious resource. this combined with rising temperatures is causing many regions to suffer severe droughts. and that is leaving people around the world literally sitting on dry land. on the way to an always this or rather what's left of this. by who grew up here in southern morocco wants to show us what climate change looks like in the desert. together with an acquaintance he's causing damage dead pan a tree to make furniture from the wood but maybe that is because these trees have not borne fruit like dates for a long time. thanks to advancing fountains the palms didn't have much of
