these 500000 children will wake up tomorrow morning and realize that we have let them down. the fate of more than a 1000000 syrians hangs in the balance as the crucial border crossing for this shutdown. i'm sorry is a them this is al jazeera live from coming up high voter turnout in hong kong as people choose candidates from the democratic camp for september elections. we have
10:01 am
remittances being transferred to these countries it's becoming increasingly challenging. the current vice pandemic sees a drop in people sending money home to africa we look at how it's impacting kenya. and the story of how our group in indonesia is helping children recover from months at sea. and made lifeline to half a 1000000 children in syria has been cut or un security council compromised means only one border crossing with turkey will remain open the deal was made after russia backed by china pushed to shut down the 2nd one out there from i think at the james bays reports from the un headquarters in new york. a security council resolution on delivery of aid into syria is finally passed the result of the voting
10:02 am
is as follows 12 votes in favor no votes against and 3 abstentions but this was not what 13 out of 15 council members wanted only one border crossing bubble how one can now be used to deliver aid after china and russia use their veto power in recent days to block other option so this resolution is not what the united states and a majority of the council fought for and it is certainly far short of what the syrian people need and discern russia's deputy ambassador was competent that the hypocrisy and double standards of our western colleagues at the unprecedented tice you were in the negotiations they were ready to jeopardize
10:03 am
growth by the mechanism but to delete messages on unilateral sanctions and increasing growth crossland deliveries that received this reply that if demetrius concerned about hypocrisy he probably should not use the words that he merits and i humanitarian aid should not be politicized because that is exactly what russia has done throughout this process and shamefully continues to do the bab al salam crossing the no clothes also a lifeline for about half a 1000000 children in the area according to unicef a fact seized upon by germany's ambassador these 500000 children will wake up tomorrow morning. and who realize that we have let them down our germany in belgium who'd been in charge of trying to negotiate and bastard the whole is going city was aware his chinese and russian colleagues were taking instructions from their capitals but he had this message for those in charge tell them that the
10:04 am
german ambassador asked are those people who gave the instructions to give instructions to cut off the aid of 500000 children if they are ready to look into the mirror tomorrow in nearly a decade of conflict in syria repeatedly starvation has been used as a weapon of war and increasingly humanitarian aid has been politicized what we've seen here in the last week may well be another episode in the international community's response to the syrian crisis that history will judge badly james al-jazeera at the united nations is not the 1st time that amber of aid routes into syria has been cut 2014 the un security council originally authorized aid to flow through 4 border crossings 2 from turkey one from iraq and one from jordan in january this year opposition from russia and china forced the routes through iraq in jordan to be dropped the 2 turkish crossings were allowed to continue for
10:05 am
another 6 months now once again at the distance of russia and china that's been reduced to a single point at our from that said jackson is a un representative and head of office for care international she says thousands of syrians will now be deprived badly needed aid. and the people that are in this area in northern electro it's one of the highest concentrations of displaced people it's over 60 percent so these are people that have been displaced multiple times over the course of the last 9 years and they are overwhelmingly women and children so these are the very people that the u.n. was set out to. and we at this stage we do not have any aid convoys coming from damascus to this region there is a negotiation underway to start there. but the closure by the council effective
10:06 am
today means that we could be looking at least 6 months before any of these convoys actually make it up into this region because of all the bureaucracy and red tape that's required to get all the commissions for the n.g.o.s to make those deliveries and i think that is is the worrying part that we cannot expect the other crossing the one that remains open to be a substitute for the cause in order to get aid from that crossing into northern aleppo you have to cross a front line and although we have a fragile cease fire in effect now we don't know what the situation will be in awake in amounts in 6 months in hong kong voter turnout for primary polls held by pro-democracy parties has been higher than expected the results will decide candidates for legislative council elections in september that vote will be the 1st
10:07 am
since a new security law was imposed by beijing today the pollen is live for us from hong kong vivia the strong turnout a sign of how much concern there is for hong kong's future. definitely that's the way it's being looked at sammy from here there were many there was much concern prior to the starts of this that many people wouldn't turn out particularly due to the fact that officials had warned that this exercise government officials i should say this exercise could violate the newly enacted national security law on top of that there were many hitches ahead of this including venues pulling out due to pressure from their landlords and also organizers were concerned about the situation in hong kong at the moment hong kong is facing an upsurge in corona virus infections but the organizers say they're very surprised by the kind of turnout more than 300000 people have come to polling
10:08 am
booths such as the one behind me they've come in drips and drabs at some point long queues in areas across hong kong there are $250.00 of these bits and it seems that the momentum is still going sami with the democratic camp so fired up is there any concern about a possible backlash from beijing. that's a very good question if you look at the patterns and particularly the past few months every time the democratic camp has made some kind of again or move 2 steps forwards they've been said to be pushed one step backwards with either the government restricting them for there or beijing putting more pressure on them to limit their movements so there's a lot of concern that this could eventually lead to instead of momentum for the democrat democracy can lead to even more restrictions for them that is one of the questions that i put to the democrat democratic activist joshua long he's also campaigning in these elections and could very well be disqualified as he's
10:09 am
currently facing trial and i asked him about that and this is what he had to say. the race of think the school fight or being sent out from a failing in the official election we still realize that the primary election is important and every boat conk to show up at this con head to beijing and with no trust to the company's reach him after the implementation of the national security law so today is the primary election day it's also the 1st time for people to what was right after the law is implemented the home call and it's time for us to fight back but more than 250000 people come out to the world which is really impressive and we hope to finally have almost half a 1000000 people come out of the protest vote and let the world to know that we should not to kowtow to china if beijing should not to cancel the election on early september i'm still of the mystic we can talk much drafty in the legislative council but once beijing used the national security law to stop the election or even do not recognize to resell it off the election it would just shake them all
10:10 am
and will backfire so now is a time to encourage the global community to put holocaust election under the global spotlight when beijing hope to override the election results and hope that this qualified candidate they need to realize that the world is watching fight for democracy in such an uphill battle just like the battle of they fix the siskel life sometime we might do it difficult and also under pressure but the fret come to feed us make us even stronger determination and just like 100000 people come out of what was it just already a lot of age you know that even they have to turn hong kong to diminish john what about we've feels it and we never called home and we never surrender. now there's so much uncertainty about what's going to happen next in particular that national security law because it is so vague and it's hard to know what is right and what is wrong and what is crossing the line it is also worth pointing out this is the 1st time such a primary has been held such a democratic exercise has been held and many here now fear that this could be the
