8:04 pm
and relates to people who are very much like you from the philippines trump well we're turn to washington and then the longest trip to asia by a u.s. president in more than a quarter century. earlier we spoke with correspondents on a santos in manila and i asked her what the world could expects from president trump the parents at the. well definitely there's going to be a lot of talks about it konami integration president tara just been emphasizing inclusive prosperity for the region and we're also hoping to see some more indication from the u.s. about what their foreign policy is going to be if you remember the. donald trump barack obama he had a clear foreign policy which is a pivot to south east so the region is going to be eagerly looking at what this far if there's going to be mentioned or policy or what stance and position the u.s. going to take in that region. spanish prime minister mariano rajoy is on his
8:05 pm
first visit to catalonia since dismissing in succession the government is offering a stark choice kick a separatist in next month's elections or there will be drastic consequences he arrived in the region just hours after hundreds of thousands of pro independence demonstrators took to the streets of barcelona getting them to change their minds will be an uphill battle it's a difficult yet inevitable trip for mariano the hoeing his conservative popular party is struggling in the polls less than six weeks before the regional election in catalonia that he called using previously untapped constitutional powers he asked catalonians to back spanish you need. we want the december twenty first election to bring back peace to catalonia we want to reestablish a democratic and free catalonia for everyone we will achieve this if the silent majority finds its voice and votes. the spanish
8:06 pm
leader can count on his party's support but many other catalans will not be holding welcome signs. the night before his arrival hundreds of thousands of independent ists took to the streets of barcelona to demonstrate again against the central government's hardline on catalan independence protesters demanded the release of separatist politicians who were jailed following last month's referendum but once again rai defended madrid's position. we did what any of our neighboring countries with some degree of self-respect would do. how would france or germany react if one of their regions called for an illegal independence referendum and declared that the constitution no longer apply there. addressing not only cuts alone here but the whole country in a holy war and everyone who challenges the spanish state will have to deal with
8:07 pm
moderates power but he'll have to wait till december to find out if catalan voters are persuaded. following that story for us as our correspondent hena mariano rajoy calls for a large turn to ice in the election coming up in december in cousin lonia why is that so important to him. well the spanish prime minister is talking about the silent majority wants to mobilize as many people as possible for the snap elections but if that translates into political power for his conservative party. that remains to be seen i don't think so because so far his conservative party and he himself is very unpopular in the region at the last elections they got only eight percent of the vote so one of the smallest party actually in the cartel on parliament and recent polls suggest that this won't change much so if he's calling
8:08 pm
for a catamaran people to speak against in the pendants that's one thing if that means actually people will vote for his party is a completely different story so what happens if the catalan separatists perform strongly than in the december election where would that leave. political parties the ones which are promoting independence their own independent states have increased their vote their success during forty four years now so it's very unlikely that they will suffer a loss in the polls again suggest that they will perform strongly during these snap elections twenty first of december and actually they say that thirty percent of the council on people will vote for the e r c and that's the republican left party who
8:09 pm
wants a known independent catalonia. could backfire but if the separatists are defeated decisively in december can we expect to see the end of the catalan bed for independence. there are no indications at the moment to give that hope they will be defeated as i said at the moment it looks like they will turn out to be the strongest party at these regional elections in any case we really have to realize that moron your. has not changed the political landscape in catalonia by imposing direct rule over this region and for sure he has not won the hearts and minds of cowtown and voters and how to people by these images of elderly people getting beaten up by the spanish police at the referendum first of october just by dropping a piece of paper into a ballot box so we will all stand by and see what will be the result but i don't
8:10 pm
think so that there will be any solution unless finally come and sans wins and both sides sit together and really try to find a political solution do you have these correspondent in spain and i thank you very much. highland. has been flexing his environmental muscles at the un climate conference and bonn germany the terminator actor and former governor of california is highly critical of the kind of policies of u.s. president donald trump is campaigning for more green energy and cuts in emissions but he says environmental activists need to communicate better to get the public's attention. i can do the best action movie in the world but if i don't know how to communicate to the people to get them into the theater the movie is going to die at the box office is going to go in the toilet so this is why it is so important if
