this is deja vu news live from berlin democrats of the us congress launched an impeachment inquiry into it alleged crimes by president trumped. the actions of the trump presidency everything dishonorable fak of the president's betrayal of his oath of office. of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections the president must be held accountable no one is upon the law. also coming up the british prime minister is returning early from the united nations after the country's supreme court ruled the suspension of parliament was illegal
what kind of reception my he got if he shows up today at the parliament he told to go home and is now set to resume. and working for a better world we talk with a tribal shaalan protecting the indigenous way of life in the amazon is one of the winners of this year's alternative nobel prize. i'm brian thomas great to have you with us paul after more than 2 years of jousting over president trumps conduct the ground has suddenly shifted in the u.s. congress with a move towards impeachment nancy pelosi the democratic speaker of the house has announced a congressional committee will launch an inquiry and skoal gathering the evidence necessary to impeach president trump for alleged crimes it's the 1st step on
a long and uncertain path that has as its final goal removing the president from office. it was a long time coming. but nancy pelosi has finally made the announcement many in her party have been waiting for the actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security and the trail of the integrity of our elections the president must be held accountable no one is above the law strong words from the speaker but why now a complaint about donald trump from a whistle blower has focused her attention it alleges that the president put pressure on ukraine to investigate former vice president joe biden and his son biden is one of the potential challengers to trump in the american presidential elections next year. where the president believes there is no limit to his power
the president believes he can do anything and get away with it but a president who believes he's above the law. pursuing the leader of another nation to investigate a political phone cope with his election is not the conduct of an american 1st. chunk knew the inquiry announcement was coming and he was an impressed. look it's just a continuation of which are the worst we'll show you the political history you have the strongest economy good the bad news the best unemployment numbers in the. trunk has faced down multiple scandals since taking office with the republicans controlling the senate even if he is impeached whether he is removed from the white house is another matter entirely. let's go straight to washington now and did their views all over salad joining us on this good morning all over this is a real gamble on the part of the democrats what are the chances that this stage that they're impeachment bad will succeed. let's be honest bryan the
chances that 3 eventually the president will be impeached out of office are very slim of this point there are several hurdles for the democrats to take and the 1st step is quite straightforward once the impeachment proceedings have delivered substantial evidence that the house of representatives will have to vote on the outcome that is pretty easy since the democrats are holding the majority in the house right now in a simple majority is enough but then the 2nd step will be that these findings will have to be confirmed by the senate they will have to speak the final verdict and the senate is controlled by the republicans and in addition to that 2 thirds of the senators are needed to finally impeach president trump and that would mean that half of the republican senators would eventually have to change sides and if you consider the partisan politics that we've been witnessing here in washington in
recent months and years this is a very highly highly unlikely scenario so for the democratic party this all looks like a leap into the unknown you know oliver leap into the unknown is good way to put it the president for his part wants to undercut this move by releasing today the transcript of the conversation in question that the donald is rolling with the ukrainian president what can we expect later today. well the president of course must feel very safe for being willing to do so and we further reports already that the expectations should not be too high the this transcript does not deliver substantial evidence that it's very weak in fact that we will learn 3 later today of course but this is also not only about a phone conversation between the ukrainian and the american president this is about all the allegations against president trump that has been made also as part of the
moller investigation league ations all folk structure of justice right now and then of course abuse of presidential powers but all eyes really are on the on the whistleblower himself who's supposed to testify later this week or even as soon as today at the intelligence committee where he will deliver some evidence we don't know exactly what his complaint is the pressure mounting on him is certainly very high. the timing is also very interesting on this how will this impeachment big play a role in the democrats' strategy for the 2020 elections will this be the central theme of their campaign well it seems like it has to be really since the likely naz excess fully impeaching trump all of this is very small now of course they can call too late by simply thinking that bringing
more evidence to public would damage the trunk come pain but this might as well backfire and you know and in a giant defeat before the senate for the democratic party ok we'll know more about the release of this transcript today where this is heading for now all over thanks very much for that small should. well u.s. president trump has been at the united nations nations where he struck a softer tone on iran during his speech at the u.n. general assembly is up short of urging any specific action over the attack on saudi oil facilities which the west blames on tehran. u.s. president donald trump has said all along he suspects the rand is behind the attack on saudi oil sites but at the u.n. he refrained from threatening military action opting instead to turn up i cannot make pressure in response to iran's recent attack on saudi arabian oil facilities we just impose the highest level of sanctions on iran central bank and sovereign
wealth fund. all nations have a duty to act. no responsible government should subsidize iran's blood lust. as long as iran is menacing behavior continues sanctions will not be lifted. germany along with britain and france have joined the us in pointing the finger at iran and the whatever it was that chancellor angela merkel used at the gathering of world leaders to hold separate talks on the sidelines with both donald trump and iranian president hassan rouhani. it is because not i would very much welcome talks taking place between the united states and iran but sanctions being lifted before talks are held isn't likely to happen. just this week if. the drone attacks earlier this month targeting key saudi oil facilities had
temporary ripple effects on world markets and added to the tension in an already unstable region. while yemen's sheo with the rebels say they carried out the attacks many experts are convinced that iran was behind the airstrikes that's what tehran insists it had nothing to do with the attacks president rouhani traveled to new york to lay out his country's case. he's held by lateral talks with french president manuel mccrone as well as german chancellor angela merkel. u.n. secretary general antonio has warned against any further escalation in the region and that of all we are facing the a lot of mean possibility of armed conflict in the gulf. the consequences of which the world cannot afford the recent attack on soviet a.b. oil facilities was totally unacceptable in a context that a mind not a miscalculation can leads to
a major confrontation we must do everything possible to push for reason and restraint. outwardly at least it seems no side is willing to risk a military confrontation. like making this preview known some of the other stories making the news at this hour at least 5 people have been wounded in a bomb attack on a bus carrying police officers in the southern turkish city of adana is not yet known who's responsible authorities want an investigation. opera megastar placido domingo has called off performances at new york's metropolitan opera after allegations of sexual misconduct he'd been due to appear in a new production of macbeth starting today wednesday dozens of women have come forward accusing him of harassment which he denies. chinese president xi jinping has officially opened beijing's new state of the art airport okayed in the south of the city it cost $16000000000.00 and boasts the world's biggest terminal building
a starfish like structure designed by the late architect saadi who will eventually host some 100000000 passengers every year. the british prime minister boris johnson could be facing lawmakers in london again today and the very same parliament he suspended earlier this month the supreme court has ruled that move was illegal throwing yet more confusion into the ranks of process johnson has promised he'll take britain out of the e.u. on october 31st come what may judges filed into the court room to deliver their highly anticipated ruling their verdict unanimous a stunning rebuke to the prime minister. the court is bound to conclude their fall that the decision to advise a magistrate to probe parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of parliament to carry out its constitutional
functions without reasonable justification the effect on the fundamentals of our democracy was extreme no justification for taking action with such an extreme effect has been put before the court. so the court said the government suspension order was no and void and that parliament should resume business immediately. common speaker john bercow confirmed m.p.'s would sit again starting wednesday. news of the ruling reached prime minister johnson in new york where he's been attending the un climate summit so obviously this is a budget that we expect with respect to the judicial process i have to say i strongly disagree with what the justices have and i don't think. it's right but we will go ahead. while the ruling doesn't affect bragg's it
directly it does mean parliament won't have to wait until mid october to have its say in the process. the decision like drags it has divided the public but these protesters welcome to the judge's decision. great day for democracy a great victory for british democracy it's good to see the courts reaffirming the rights to flee electorate sisters and eyes through its elected representatives what the government's doing on threats of a night like opposition leader jeremy corbin who's been struggling with labor's own drugs and divisions at the party's annual conference called on johnson to step down for a job i haven't found to misled the country this unelected prime minister should never really bought. into the prime minister's next move may be anyone's guess but he'll return to london to face growing pressure over his brags that strategy and his leadership.
ok let's go straight to the british parliament now cross over the news for a lot of pots following this for us today so it's a good day to you when parliamentarians return to that building behind you today what type of reception do they have in store for boris johnson that is if he shows up today. well it's going to be a very cold reception for boris johnson here the labor opposition party we've just heard in the piece they are calling for his resignation and so do the scottish national party so boris johnson here in a really dark deep hole he's on his way from back from new york right now way he attended the general assembly yesterday he's rushing back he's cut his trip short and we have to say yesterday's supreme court ruling really was extraordinary and really a setback a big big blow for the government for boris johnson unanimously 11 judges ruled that he broke the law and the question really is for boris johnson how long can
a prime minister broke the law who broke the law really cling onto power that's one of the questions out there you know after the court's decision we have the parliamentarians coming back can you walk us through what happens now what comes next well it's all a bit unclear of course because this is absolutely unprecedented what happens next so parliament will be sitting again from 1130 this morning and they will if boris johnson shows up ask him some questions about his strategy how he intends to move forward in this saga but we have to keep in mind parliament is very very divided no majority's essentially they have to decide now which way they are choosing to move forward how they want to move on in the break that saga and with all of that said breaks it is the next deadline is around the corner ok what does all this mean for . britain still be leaving october 31st that is one of the big issues out there.
absolutely you have on the one hand boris johnson the prime minister who insists we will leave by october or on october 31st do a di i will negotiate a deal if that doesn't work we will leave with no deal then on the other hand you have the parliament saying we definitely won't leave on october 31st they have pasta law that would force boris johnson's hand and make him ask for an extension at the european union so you really have this supreme court ruling had huge instability to the u.k. political system because the question is who is really in touch is it this weekend prime minister or the strings. and we really have to see moving forward who wins that power struggle and what politicians plan exactly one thing is for sure a break that is around the corner $36.00 days to go so they really have to come up
with a plan ok and we should have it where the power struggle is going later today in the building behind you will see how that turns out if the prime minister shows up today for lots of for now thanks very much. we're turning now to the people working to make the world we live in a much better place the winners of this year's right livelihood awards have been announced also known as the alternative nobel prize this word on as people offering solutions to our world's problems well this year's on or award goes to a number of people including the pro-democracy activist from western sahara a minute to. has spent the last 30 years campaigning for her homeland independence from morocco she's often referred to as the gandhi of western sahara. the 2nd prize winner is well yawn a now she's chinese human rights activist who set up the very 1st legal

a topic which has completely no attention we pick the laureates based on achievements and although greater is quite young she has achieved as much as the other laureates she said par in terms of creating impact in terms of. embodying right livelihood she's a big can of hope for millions not only of young people in our generation but also across generations. and she's the most catalytic voice so far when it comes to the climate battle so again we don't look for attention we look for the achievements and she's absolutely up to it ok well to merge isn't the only winner for efforts to protect the environment davi coppa now as an activist for indigenous rights in the amazon we'll talk more about him in a minute let's find out more 1st about what he's doing or his did eunice tribe in the amazon davi company is one of the world's leading indigenous rights activists as a shaman and a leader of the amazonian tribe the yanomami has fought for decades to protect the
rights and the culture of this indigenous group in brazil. but the more land has to be respected the probation now land is a heritage and a heritage which protects us so for us indians the land belongs to us so we can plant hunt and be healthy more it is our home we will leave for the rest of our lives. is president of the hutu car yanomami association which unites spread out gena mommy communities to fight for their rights politically and her protect the rain forest from miners ranchers and other groups who pose a threat to their way of life. the association was instrumental in gaining recognition for huge protects its own in the amazon rain forest larger than the size of greece the campaign so davi travel as far away as london to speak to parliament the prize
organizers want to rally the world support for the fight of the jenna mommy and other indigenous groups for the protection of our planet and. julian to tell us more about the decision to choose davi well the amazon is burning so this is certainly a very timely laureate but it's not just the the trees and the land i mean we talk about biodiversity which is being lost increasing speed and davi company is fighting to preserve biodiversity and what we also call the pharmacy of the planet he and his tribe consider themselves to be the guardians of the rain forest and we seeing when it comes to indigenous rights we seeing currently backlashes to redraw the borders of indigenous land to let in loggers and miners developments which a really really warring and here we have somebody who has been fighting all of his life to keep not only the language and the culture but to preserve the land and
hand down to the next generation what it means to be the guardian of the of the harness only and ok preserving and we are afraid we are afraid that the protection aspect will play in we very very concerned about the situation in brazil ok you're concerned and you think it's all about are the words all about protecting the environment we have great term burge we have dobie company now of course you do you think that that environmental concerns have a clips all the other press pressing issues are planets facing right now war famine inequality just just a few of them. no i mean we have 4 laureates and we have laureates representing other top topics as well but we certainly think that the climate crisis is. on the top of the list right now and i mean we seeing that the climate is changing with create is increasing speed but again there are other topics which are covered
by our 2 other laureates julia julia and cronin thanks so much for coming in today a board member and jury member for the right livelihood award thanks very much. and staying with the amazon brazil's president higher balls an r. o. has defended his environmental record before world leaders at the un general assembly it uses tricks of lying about the wildfires currently raging in the amazon and he rejected any outside interference saying the fate of the amazon rainforest is a matter for brazil alone and not for foreign entities fi amazon rain forest is burning at its highest rates in almost a decade images like this were a environmentalists say see the rain forest is the world's along with an antidote to climate change and they accuse brazil's president of allowing deforestation to go on checks but at the un jaya both in our i met file with even more fire telling
his audience the amazons a matter for brazil. it is a fallacy to say that the amazon is the heritage of humankind. using and resorting to fallacies to certain countries instead of helping light in the media and behaved in a disrespectful manner and with a colonialist spirit. the man nicknamed captain chainsaw has promised to open up the amazon for farming and mining but the clearing of trees has encroached on land belonging to indigenous communities representatives of those communities were in new york to hear both scenarios speak . his speech at the un was to please economic sectors mining timber harvesting and i mean business these 3 the economic sectors of the ones causing and promoting genocide of the brazilian indigenous peoples.
