a few your. homophobia is especially entrenched in poland's conservative south east . but even in brutally warsaw scenes like this one are highly unusual to women holding hands in public. and i gotta are a couple and don't want to hide it but living openly as homosexuals isn't easy even here in the capital stuff. you want to just go we always feel afraid of it. but i think it's women it's a little bit easier for us. we're not safe either. but for men holding hands is completely out of the question and poland. they got married in berlin but in poland they're still considered single homophobia is officially encouraged. yeah i mean i love any and she happens to be a woman and she loves me i'm a woman so that's enough to be

8:36 am
a sin right so to me defending these people would be justifying sins without them. that a legit sin is embodied by couples like him ilya and i got one is a lawyer the other a journalist they want to live openly as lesbians but it's not always possible. i was in a store recently and i wanted to say that my wife had sent me to go shopping. but then i thought i might live to say my wife. anyone else wouldn't even think about it. they have made one decision. they plan to stay in poland and fight for their rights and for greater tolerance but they say many of their homosexual friends have already given up the fight and left poland behind. and now from next report. we leave poland to meet him in japan he proves that it is

shame. this journey toward self-love is the subject of the book he's working on at the moment. but his message of tolerance does not get spread everywhere in japan. but it was. quite interesting i don't think japan is ready to accept this kind of lifestyle but i personally think it's really good that there are people like him. i even want to. make up extraordinary and buddhist priest. for him life is about having the courage to accept who you are. and finding pleasure and meaning in earthly as well as spiritual pursuits. everyone has the right to accept themselves for who they are on our facebook page

wool has become a losing business these days sales don't even cover the costs of having the sheep sheared so that some a beautiful merino wool. is mitt romney and i have merino sheep because they still have the best quality wool i get over a euro per kilo. and colleagues of mine who have other breeds get a lot less they get $45.00 to $0.65 per kilo. of some of them don't sell it any more choosing to burn the world or toss it instead. they're going to. his wool goes to china where it's processed and ends up in bedding upholstery carpets and other textile products some of these end up back on the european market where they're sold at high prices that make spaghetti pappa furious as to talent it's totally absurd buyers here purchase the

from the back in fact spinning around in a globalized textile market producing fabric regionally is difficult the production costs are too high the quantities too low. for wool is processed here died and spun into yarn. moved from german sheep barely plays a role in the international market. because. we get our will from all over the world from new zealand australia and south america also from england. depending on the requirements we have to meet we get our wool from everywhere with one foot in bali on. this mill receives only about 10 tonnes of wool from germany each month compared to the $220.00 tons it gets from new zealand wool from down under is pure and wool from other places it's softer and cheaper too because it's

produced very efficiently the vatican felt spinning male wants to promote local wool but has no illusions about the future of wool from germany always harder sadly consumers today are not willing to pay higher prices at the retail level they're more interested in getting new products faster they want to see trends in changes in fashion so the cost has to be low it would be nice if people could change their priorities and still. get a proper remains enthusiastic about her wool in fabric it may be expensive but demand from high quality sustainable fashion is growing her mission is to eventually produce quantities approaching 10000 metres of her muzzle tweet. i don't want yes my primary goal is to find imitators kind of i don't want to earn millions and i want satisfied employers and i want to know that i have enough to live on at the end of the month and i'd like everyone in the value chain all those who are helping out to enjoy working with me and feel like they're being paid fairly for

manuela posed himself it's so painful we always try to stop other kids from playing on his area but there's no way of keeping the children safe none of the parents can do anything about this place. it's all the municipalities fault was that they failed us even though and. even after our loss they failed to at least what they promised to do. so i'm delighted to be a little. bit. more than a quarter of a century has passed since apartheid ended but the south african government still hasn't managed to equip all the townships with power running water and a functioning waste disposal and sanitation system. the local authorities are aware of the problem but they're chronically underfunded. 2 years ago they declared a war on waste 50 illegal waste dumps were transformed into parks and playgrounds

and other items. found at the project as a way of helping the community. people think that thrown away. but we have a lot of people that live in those away places that live close to tips and places where garbage collectors but they are living conditions for anyone so we're really trying to change that because our. housing is very close to those areas so we want them to be the best areas people are going to live in. retreat gives the waist reclaimers much more than what the commercial recycling firms offer them the project is financed by private donations and the sale of the recyclable waste thanks to retreat collecting recyclables has become a recognized job and providing a modest but vital income that.
