more and more members of the pro-democracy movement began taking to the streets. in 21000 the situation escalated and more than a 1000000 hong kong residents took part in protests originally the demonstrations were against a proposed extradition law and then turned into opposition to the influence of china's communist party but now a new national security law has silenced the demonstrators. a lot has changed in hong kong you can see it on the streets it used to be that many kathie's in restaurants exhibited post it notes with pro-democracy sayings written on them now the notes are all blank it's the same for a cafe owner dixon the blank poster is the new form of protest written political statements are now too risky. the police could put the national security law into effect. they are. just being
4:33 am
accused could lead to arrest and imprisonment. demonstrators holding up blank signs overnight political opinions have become dangerous in hong kong. as soon as the new national security law was instituted the 1st arrest came a young man with a flag demanding hong kong's independence. just in the last few weeks 10 people were arrested under the new law no one knows which political slogans are still about. who should be left going to see although eventually to leave people guessing is that they will be more who has and less willing. to speak out and them and that maybe. we'll see a. public libraries and school libraries are now will be. forced to remove books
4:34 am
that aren't following the party line. books by democracy activists have already vanished. most teachers are just heartened but resistance could cost them their job. and many in hong kong won't express their criticisms in public. we see that it's. freedom of speech freedom of press or. 3 the most publication also. strictly prohibits or controlled by the gulf among we are free to its cultural worth rooster and we will come back to a home call and do is turn to your son 3. the younger generation has been especially involved in the pro-democracy movement now schools are being targeted by beijing so called security law. even statements that teachers make in private are
4:35 am
being monitored and. there you receive the compression on teachers on their political concerns or and social performance the ones lost their school tour for us to kerry's or you from o'keefe warn them to teachers and all of these. your silk routes through for and for all before the atmosphere at schools has changed according to these students cake and k.f.c. they use the nicknames because they don't want to be recognized a month ago cakes music class chose the song glory to hong kong for a class project the song had become a him in the protest movement in the past year and a viral hit. students in schools and universities developed it made a video and then spread it on social media it was often sung at pro-democracy demonstrations.
4:36 am
but cake's music teacher paid a high price for making the song the subject of the school exam she was fired. all told why i'm one of the students the president of the song and music class so. now i feel guilty. oh you know what it's all call your teacher was fired because of a song. i never thought i would have such terrible consequences what a whole the thing that angers cake and k.f.c. the most the reason given for firing the teacher was that teachers shouldn't influence their students but petri out of songs praising china's communist party are allowed in the school. so i think that. the song without the communist party there would be no new china is not defined as
4:37 am
a political song. why should glory to hong kong be considered a political song. cake and k.f.c. want to continue their protest the 14 and 16 year olds can't accept how the new law has already changed their lives of free hong kong no longer exists in the same streets where a 1000000 people march to defend their rights in security and fear are now the new normal. but. fortunately in other parts of the world people can make their voices heard on the street. all around the globe millions are demonstrating against racism. the dehumanization of people with dark skin has occurred since time immemorial it was. even used as
4:38 am
a justification for slavery for some it's hard to believe that these prejudices are still so entrenched in people's minds how can we get rid of them. i can't breathe the last words of george floyd his death sparked protests around the world including in germany. i live and experiencing racism makes you feel powerless even the time race is a historical relic discredited as a biological concept shots and hundreds from detroit of being black in germany means having to constantly justify your humanity on every level that even. last year there was a 10 percent increase in racist incidents in germany $1176.00 in total so i design for a country like germany which is forever boasting about its democratic credentials
4:39 am
not good enough. examples of everyday racism being asked where do you come from being addressed in english all the time not being recognized as a citizen of germany being stead at a steady hum of hostility that never goes away that's hard to pinpoint. racism in germany is very subtle. didn't defective micro aggressions is very underestimation. every time a black person or a person of color leaves their home experience hundreds of incidents of racism have something really. big. does the musts symptoms that it deeply rooted problem by and large racist attitudes in germany are attributed to individuals a matter of personal prejudices but in fact there. as clear evidence of structural
4:40 am
racism across society. on stuff of sean it starts with ignorance of the existence for decades of black germans and. tyo not seen as belonging to the population. as it covered this because locals that's part of germany's structural racism is the way we're made invisible. the loss of his hago and can't shape the age of enlightenment but to them human rights were white right in the 1900 century south west africa was colonized by the german empire its people subjugated. their race based nuremberg laws designed to protect german blood were introduced in 1935 according to the right citizenship law a citizen was only someone descended from germans a becomes it will trash the last option as i can imagine that germans are tired of
4:41 am
having to keep addressing their history but there's no way around it economist or your own deep there has to be a willingness to dig deep into this very bloody marcie pacifist after the 2nd world war many african american g.i.'s remained in germany and started family it was an opportunity for germany to become a more diverse society but these children were often ostracized and many women were forced to give their children up for overseas adoption west germany wasn't ready to become less white while communist east germany flew in contract workers from socialist african countries such as mozambique only to eventually send them back many chapters in it's history explain why black people don't feel at home in germany mainstream culture is white culture and most of the population is unaware of its white privilege. these men didn't. call this state of being happy
4:42 am
middle class society and people on the left have understood that racism is bad but they see it as a right wing problem and they think they themselves are anti racist and that's all that can be expected it just. there is now fresh debate about how gemini reflects on its racist past but again this tackles the symptoms not the root cause is simply expunging the word race from javanese basic law won't eradicate racism and white people need to realize it's not just a problem for black people and me expressing sympathy is nowhere near enough. that's with counseling it's vital that criticism of racism is built into the education system does more to pick up information multipliers education is racism and discrimination are issues that need to be part of their training.
4:43 am
we need control mechanisms for institutions independent control mechanisms for the police for schools sure this is some good some good racism is a problem for society as a whole no one can ignore us. all persons shall be equal before the law declares article 3 of the german basic law it's a promise that germany needs to deliver on once and for all. they need firewood to cook fields to harvest food and a place to live. in india 1300000000 people need every bit of space they can get. in the last 20 years 18000 square kilometers of forest have been cleared to accommodate the expansion of said. yes and settlements

4:47 am
any friends in that area and. probably if they had information these incident could have been avoided. in 2017 the n.c.f. launched an early warning system the 1st of its kind in the region that covers $220.00 villages in haasan district. it is a free service for which locals can sign up by registering their mobile phone number with the organisation. we've seen over. 70 on this is a public service announcement while infants have been sighted in the villages we request you to be vigilant at all times and i mean you know and. anyone registered routinely receives alerts in the local language canada about the possible location of the elephants as well as additional warnings if things look.
