comic book characters belgian artist l.j. created the intrepid young reporter whose adventures were first published in one nine hundred twenty nine ninety years on he continues to install fans and at the l.j. museum in belgium anniversary preparations are underway. tintin is an invisible link between children across the world the books have been translated into two hundred languages and two hundred million books have been sold this character continues to fascinate people. tintin solves mysteries across the world from china to north america and even further afield. nineteen years after his creation is no doubt the temptation is still very popular but in recent years some of the stories have become controversial with some readers saying they propagate racial stereotypes like this one tintin in congo. when this was created congo was
a belgian colony the story reflects a colonial vision of africa congolese people often sketched a savage is stupid or lazy tintin is portrayed as the intellectual and cultural superior this author says that l.j. wasn't racist but simply drew on the colonial materials available at the time he's published a book that puts tintin in congo in what he calls historical context. and what was created in one thousand nine hundred eighty s. with today's values is artificial of course there are things that we. cannot just throw it away in the dustbin of history. for more than a decade this activist has waged a legal battle in belgium to have the book banned he says it's offensive and could negatively influence the way children few africans are now this book was a tool to motivate belgians to go to congo it gave them a sense of superiority so how can a book that serve to commit crimes be accepted in this way without any discussion
of books like tintin in congo on acceptable and should be banned for children. congo gained independence from belgium in one nine hundred sixty for some campaign as the european nation has yet to face the brutal reality of its colonial past they say that reassessing the impact of tintin in congo would be a small but significant step the tasha buckler al-jazeera blue violent earth belgium more news coming up on al-jazeera and just a moment thanks for watching the news hour by.

ok this is al jazeera live from london also coming up opposition leader felix chase acadia has declared surprise winner in the democratic republic of congo's presidential election this but his rival says the results are bringing. us extra state might compare ney's out which company ministrations vision for the middle east in a keynote speech in cairo. in a drone attack on a yemeni military parade threatens to derail peace efforts by the u.n. . and i mean u.s. president donald trump has arrived at the mexican border where he's trying to drum up support for his controversial wool trunk will hold a round table discussion at a border patrol facility in macallan texas he's demanding more than five billion
dollars for his planned barrier to the south pole as a meeting on wednesday with democrat leaders but he called a waste of time because they're still refusing to fund the wall resulting in a partial government shutdown. this is a tremendous crisis at the border look at president obama's statements from the past numerous statements where it calls it a crisis this is a crisis us human traffic you have brought you had criminals covering it you have. thirteen which take you to maximize a sow's or to bring them back this is a crisis and they don't come in it's a checkpoint which says you wall so they go in for three to checkpoints where you don't have any barrier. committee how could joins us from mccallum texas can be why is he focusing on this base in particular was a chosen to go there. you heard it from the president there he believes that it's a crisis and he believes this is essentially the focal point of where
a lot of these illegal crossings occur i'll show you why in just a second but i wanted to pick up on the fact that the president has tried to underscore this point that this is a crisis this is resulted he believes in a partial government shutdown which democrats would argue is also a responsibility of donald trump who is republicans but he is using this excuse as a means of canceling appointed or awaited appearance in davos switzerland the president tweeting out that he will not be attending the world economic forum he tweeted that out in the last hour or so that was scheduled for next tuesday but the president saying that this is the crisis that he needs to address here in the united states now as for mccallum texas the reason the president has chosen this location is to essentially underscore the point that he is trying to make and that is that the american border remains porous in some sections and this is one of those places if you look behind me you can see a rather tall fence and then a very short one that's because right there you certainly can scale over that chain
link fence if you manage to get through the razor wire and also scale up a wall that's about four or five meters you also have to swim across a river and go through some brush but it's certainly something that you could do if you're up to the physical challenge and that's the point don trumps making that when he comes and meets with border security officials local mayors this is one of those areas where he says he needs the five point seven billion to construct walls that can't be scaled over so that's the case the president's trying to make it's a very much a photo opportunity in some respects but he is trying to fight back against his critics who say this isn't a crisis you heard the president talking there saying in fact that this isn't a crisis in their view a but he says yes even democratic. residents have called that president obama for example back in two thousand and fourteen ways of children were coming across the border unaccompanied so the president when he left the white house also said that
he's not ruling out the possibility of declaring this a national emergency that would give him an awful lot of money that he could access in order to build this wall if he can't get it through congress certainly that would also open him up to major court challenges by his critics so the president now on the ground here macallum texas as he continues to make his case to try to resolve this in congress but still not looking very hopeful can be how can i thank you very much indeed meanwhile back in washington many u.s. government workers have taken to the streets in protest over the partial shutdown of castro joins us live from outside the white house where a rally is taking place so what's the mood on the street there are people very angry of this do not shut down. they indeed are lauren because tomorrow will be a critical moment in this continued shutdown not only would it mark it tied for the longest government shutdown in the u.s. history but it would also be the first day that these government workers will go
without their paycheck and so unions representing the more than eight hundred thousand workers impacted by this gather to march to the steps of the white house and they have been calling donald trump the president by name saying trump and this shutdown not only are these government services that include food stamps to the neediest americans in jeopardy if this funding does not get resolved the next few weeks but the most immediate victims of the shutdown are in fact these workers they are the border patrol agents the park rangers the scientists and the administrators who are keeping this cut the government running and many of them are still being forced to work without pay or they're being let go altogether while this situation continues and they are saying that this is unfair that they did nothing wrong does to deserve to be the puns of this political stalemate as you know president donald trump and republicans do not want to reopen the government unless democrats agree
to this border wall funding which democrats have said they will not entertain and when i ask people here at the protest who do they blame since they're the ones in the middle and the resoundingly the answer from people here at this protest at least has been that trump is to blame if you remember trump himself declared that he would be proud to be to shut down the government over border security just a few days ago he told reporters that he thinks many federal workers agree with what he is doing that it is a blatant contradiction to the sense that i'm feeling and that i'm hearing from the federal workers who are protesting on the ground in fact their unions have filed a lawsuit against the u.s. government saying that to force those workers to work without pay is in violation of the fair labor standards act any sort of result from that lawsuit would take months if not years and lauren they're asking for a solution now. thank you very much.
our surprise election result in democratic republic of congo means a major opposition leader will likely take over as president ending joseph kabila as eighteen year rule but for the situation katy's victory is being overshadowed by allegations of vote rigging and fraud interventional catholic church has reportedly suggested the runner up martin for you actually won by a landslide and as he wrote us are reports from can shatter the results have some celebrating and all those protesting on the streets. and once meant a few expected one that could set the stage for the first democratic transfer of power since independence from belgium in one thousand nine hundred sixty feel it had seen his father lead congress opposition for more than thirty five years had a message of unity. the i know how many of you find it hard to accept
but i say with sincerity i pay homage to president joseph kabila president of the republic today we must no longer consider each other as adversities but rather as partners and democratic change in our country. thousands of his supporters poured onto the streets to celebrate they hope it will be a new beginning to suffer in this country there's no job in this country i was in south africa i'm going to come back i'm going to there's no job and country the people these people are going to study and after that there's nothing the result triggered protesters in goma and congolese catholic chastely days are also questioning the result local authorities in concrete in the south west of the country say at least two civilians and two police officers were killed during riots several police stations were torched. just a kid is rival martin five is rejecting the provisional results and alleges what he calls an electoral who. kill all those who learned of the truth of the ballot boxes
especially to congress national bishops the past couple conference sankoh and the church of congo through your historical observations we ask you to reveal to the congolese people and to the whole world the name of the person who really was our people's choice. categorically the result published by the election commission president. this in the international community to the surprise victory is at odds with other tongues. the catholic church of congo did its tally and announced completely different results therefore i think while remaining calm and avoiding confrontation that we must have clarity on these results which are the opposite to what we expected. with a history of coups conflict and contested elections the d r c has been on edge during campaigning with allegations of widespread election irregularities including a vote rigging and violence. to take anyone who deny.
the internet has been cut off for weeks in an apparent attempt to stop speculation about the results writes police had been deployed the boat that was two years old was finally see the exit of president joseph kabila nearly eighteen years in power but the op questions about how much influence he will still have. to confront iranian influence in the middle east and expel every last iranian boot from syria. made the comments during a keynote address at the american university in cairo in which she outlined u.s. ministrations policy for the region but has. the u.s. secretary of state was touring the middle east almost described as
a mission focused on shoring up support among arab allies against iran since withdrawing from the two thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal last year the u.s. has increased pressure on teheran which accuses of being a destabilizing force in the region. many middle east experts say pushing iran into a corner is a dangerous move but in the egyptian capital cairo america's top diplomat didn't mince his words the nations of the middle east will never enjoy security achieve economic stability or advance the dreams of their people if iran's revolutionary regime persists on its current course america's economic sanctions against the regime are the strongest in history and will keep getting tougher until iran starts behaving like a normal country. middle east follows confusion about donald trump's withdrawal of a around two thousand u.s. troops from northern syria the president's announcement schult arab allies as well
