1:03 pm
the civil war has been in progress for in recent months, because then terry step attacks on civilians all around the country. what we've seen in the 8 months since the start to is more than $5000.00 attacks, mainly targeting civilian community using air strikes, air, bombardments night, a whole amount of violence. so what we're about to see now is things going to get worse at the dry season commences in burma. debbie, what needs to be done to avoid an even greater human rights catastrophe? well, it's time that as the n got into partnership with the un security council, the un security council needs to step in this is the only body feared and respected by the military. and once the security council gets, gets involved,
1:04 pm
perhaps the military will step back and step down from the violence. it will also create more confidence amongst the population who have been actively resisting this legal debbie a, the, and did. they were able to put enough pressure on the june by not welcoming them to its upcoming summit of a, the kinds of things that you're talking about in terms of that international pressure. well definitely, but it needs to leverage that 1st step by working by calling in the security council to set up a button issue to deal with the military. i think it has actually been quite a big step for asi and to disinvite the illegal leader. but that's not enough. and it's not just me and my that's going to be impacted. what are the implications on bordering countries?
1:05 pm
if the situation worse and in me and my emily, as you said in 2017 though he got the genocidal campaign against her anger carriage, nearly 3 quarters of a 1000000 people, at least 4 bangladesh appear in the northwest in the north and north east. these are areas boarding in bordering india, china and thailand. and actually none of these countries can afford a huge influx of refugees, particularly when we're dealing with a corporate pandemic. so clearly discovery council that i see a need to work together and have a stern talk and have some very precise steps for the military who intend to follow debbie from a personal perspective. you are obviously the founder of outs in burma. what's it like for you to watch the situation unfolding in the m r and say the impact on the civilians. there i've been in human rights activists for burma, for obama, myanmar, for more than 30 years. i have not seen the situation. so bed. we've not had so
1:06 pm
many political prisoners, we've not had this wide spread and systematic brutality happening across the country like this. if there, if this is the if day, if does any, the, if there was a time that the security council needs to get involved, it's now because the situation is about to get out of control. and we have to stop that from happening. if it wasn't already since the february curry, thank you for your insights there. debbie still had the coordinator of outs in burma. appreciate your time. italy's for my interior minister material sylvania has gone on trial for his role in blocking a migrant rescue ship in 2019. he's accused of kidnapping and abuse of authority. if i ride politician, prevented 2 vessels from docking for days, i would carrying hundreds of people. rescued from the mediterranean desperation led to some migrants jumping off and attempting to swim to show for more on his that's
1:07 pm
bringing the adam reiney who joins us live now from rome. hello there, adam. what's happening on the 1st day of this trial? or emily, what we're gonna see happening on this 1st day saturday south of here in palatable is both sides proposing which witnesses will testify in this case. and the prosecutors have come out with a list of 26 possible witnesses among them. the former prime minister prime minister conte and the current interior minister occupies the role that my pay. sabina had in 2019 when this happened. now on that list is also the actor richard here because he volunteered for the humanitarian organization instead of one of those codes. so albini has kind of capitalize on that to, to say this is more of a circus, perhaps even a hollywood film and show that he would love to see richard year in the trial because that would allow him to get his autograph for his mother. but in all seriousness, we're also seeing
1:08 pm
a saline in the court in palermo on saturday. he's already been tweeting from inside and trying to draw attention to this process to gain some relevance. he's blaming the left in italy and, and people who support what he calls a legal immigration for getting this trial this far. and he says he's just doing his job. and so adam, one of his how significant of a's legal proceedings, what's, what's likely going to happen? one of the ramifications they're quite sick. yeah, i mean they're, they're, they're quite significant because it's, it's very rare that we see some on put on trial and a criminal case for work they carried out while occupying a high ranking government office. and that hasn't been seen here in italy for some time. and it's also significant because it also shows us the 2 different italy's between 2019 and now 20212019. we had mateo 70, the rising powerful right wing figure who had come in to power promising to be
1:09 pm
tough on immigration, ruled as a vice prime minister even, and said he's carrying out what the government had asked him to do. and that is to keep a migrant out of italian territory, or he is deflecting a bit saying he shouldn't be held accountable for his decisions to do that and block this ship taking port. but this is also taking place. as i mentioned in this italy of 2021 which the pandemic is the preeminent issue, not migration, not the refugee crisis in the mediterranean. and we see mateo saline trying to stay relevant for his right wing supporters walk. he has an opponent rising in the right sometimes out performing him in polls. so while he has a foot in the government, he's still a member of the ruling coalition right now headed by a center, right leader mateo. froggy isadine is finding himself on for footing trying to same government while also throwing rhetorical bomb far trying to point out problems with the government may hear a helicopter passing over policies,
1:10 pm
the sounds. but so he's in a typical position because he has to maintain relevance to what we're seeing is him embracing this hearing, trying to bring back migration as a pivotal issue here in italy. we're right now we're trying, we're seeing millions of a time. so you know what the big issue now is getting back to work, making sure everyone's safe and getting the economy going in. that's a position that prime in a, somebody, doggie, is fully supporting. actually he said earlier on saturday that europe not just italy should not be spending money on the walling itself off from my grants. and he says this on the day that the former interior minister is read on trial for how he treated migrants 2 years ago. so we see these 2, italy's in play here, it's questionable whether solving will put it in a way that brings him back into some popular ranking him to polls right now. it doesn't seem that so likely. thank you very much for the update. adam rainy there, make sure you keep us updated as to how the trial progresses. the issue of undocumented migration continues to provide year pain politicians,
