1:02 am
restrictions took place or took effect rather people protested in cities across the country. ah, hundreds of people demand to pass tensions run high on the streets of tito in the eastern state of saxony on monday night. just one of many protest so organized across the country against the government corona, by restrictions and covey. 19 vaccines. it was a tense, but a peaceful protest. in the nearby town of bouts and police were attacked with fireworks and butters. as they attempted to break up an, an authorized protest. authorities reported at least 10 officers injured in the capital berlin. there is a little understanding of the violence that has erupted, and for those who still refused to get vaccinated by you, we all get every mandatory vaccine where we go on holiday without questioning it. so what's happening now is ridiculous, and we'll move, move,
1:03 am
nothing. it's not necessary detected as treats and attack police offices to use violence. you should do it peacefully with audio rate all in the same boat. so why do some have to kick up a fuss? there is rise. it or i don't know if it's the right way, but people probably don't know who else to express themselves on. almost a year to day after the vaccination campaign started berlin, mayor of francisco goofy, i visited a covey 19 intensive care unit. she repeated the government's plea to the quarter of the population, steel and vaccinated in germany. licensees, his infant get hard as unaided, as i can only say it again and again. the people lying here in this hospital and rush, many of them are probably thinking if only i had done it, is perhaps, then it would have prevented this from happening like, oh gosh, probably there are opponents to the vaccine and measures. but over half of the population support measures now in place. but officials are bracing themselves for
1:04 am
a new wave of infections with the more transmissible army chron variance, which could overwhelm germany's critical health care infrastructure. germany's constitutional court has ordered parliament to mediately issue laws, protecting people with disabilities. in pet depak related tree are situations, the case was filed by a group of people with disabilities and pre existing conditions. they expressed fear that they would be not denied treatment. if the pandemic pushes hospitals to their limits in intensive care, but left on his own without a ventilator, it's a nightmare scenario. constantine cause fear that due to his disability, he might be left to die because his chances of survival are deemed too low. he went to court and one. now there must be laws in place to protect people with disabilities. for my younger lessons, perspective in this, for from our perspective, the constitutional court and took a great weight off our shoulders. they told us and society that we have to have an
1:05 am
intense discussion about. this is we've to do with you. so now it must be debated and put into law how doctors decide who is saved in emergency situations. if they cannot save every one. up until now that's been covered by professional guidelines . those guidelines say that the chance of survival is decisive. doctors look at the patient state of health frailty and whether there are serious pre existing conditions that will reduce the chance of survival. the judges of the federal constitutional court ruled that the current approach does not protect against discrimination and demanded a legal framework that guarantees it a relief for doctors who feel left alone with life and death decisions. tell them that they're gonna look into a number of colleagues. laguna, everyone would like to have constitutionally set guard rails what rules that are resilient. so this is a good ruling ship from dia is t as good as what?
1:06 am
tied federal justice minister, marco bushmen reacted on twitter. yes, the most important thing has to be that we don't get into a tree or situation. but if we do, then we need clear rules that protect people with handicaps from discrimination. the government will develop a draft law quickly. the court has left the government plenty of room to maneuver as it drafts the new law, but also says they must act immediately. let's turn now to some other stories making headlines around the world. in the syrian port of let, the key of firefighters contained ablaze hours after missiles attack of the facility from the mediterranean syrians. date media said that the attack was carried out by israel, but didn't give details on the damages caused by the strike. these really military has not commented so far on the attack. members of jordan's parliament have treated
1:07 am
blows during the debate about gender equality and changes to the constitution. the punch up began when deputies discussed adding the female now to amendments that guaranteed equal rights for all citizens. no one was seriously injured. bolivian emergency services say they have rescued at least 48 people stranded by flood waters. heavy rains had central regions of the country last week, affecting farming and damaging hundreds of homes. authorities believe 13 people have died so far in the flooding. in the latest blow to russian civil society, the supreme court there has ordered the closing of memorial. the countries most respected human rights group, it defends the rights of political prisoners in russia, and helps victims of soviet era repression. the court agreed with the prosecutions argument that the organization violated a law and so called foreign agents. morial and its supporters say the charges are politically motivated, rushes, oldest,
1:08 am
and most important human rights organization, now disbanded, supporters defied a protest fan to gather in front of memorial headquarters. they said the decision was politically motivated. was that idea of critics of being eliminated? so is the opposition. any one who wants to lit the mask off russia and look critically at its history that is being eliminated? i know you're distorted. memorial was classified as a foreign agent. that meant the organization had to comply with various requirements. the court found in violation of those rules. the n g o is now banned and must stop its work in russia. for many memorial represents the historical conscience of the country. it aims to make sure that the reign of terror in the soviet union under joseph stalin and the inhumanity of the gulag prison camp system are not forgotten. when earlier this month,
1:09 am
russian president vladimir putin accused memorial of rehabilitating the reputations of nazi collaborators in world war 2. we was a moment of in use of the organization denied all allegations and wants to appeal. it's representatives say they may take the case to the european court of human rights. so why is vladimir putin kremlin so determined to have memorial closed down? the w put that question earlier to puzzle of underway of, from the organizations board of directors. hello dear yours and i think i need to say that it's so long history of repression against new moral as in speech and came to the power. and i think there is 3 main reasons. the 1st one is that lead, there's no lifestyle legend or prison and he's close friends. he's the former. thank you, officer and all the many people around around him and who has now the biggest power in russia. they are former gauge, the officers and for damage,
1:10 am
and the moral always was the enemy because we started to what they did in thirties and the old, their service history. this is the 1st point. the 2nd thing eats and because new moral wasn't only historical society and we not only work with stones or impressions, but also was their biggest part of new moral work in the human rights in modern the russia. and that's why it was, it was all this was hard topics for the russian government in church now in the, in, on all other fields or relation of human rights inside a freshman. and it was very stressful and tomorrow will be the 2nd case against the human rights center of new moral. and it probably also will be bound to work. and the sense thing is because they're putting in more than 20 years in power. and they're now preparing the next next history to the keep the power
1:11 am
because they now they preparing the transition of his power or to keep him from one more president election. and then that's why the tricky down all in the huge, independent organizations that was puzzle and ray of memorials, board of directors there. and now, as the year draws to a close, we want to take a look at some of the lasting images of 2021. the united states withdrawal from afghanistan was as chaotic as it was. sudden, as international forces departed, thousands of locals tried to leave 2 hundreds got onto the runway at cobbler airport. desperate to get out. such was their desperation that as one u. s. military plane taxied down the runway some clung to the body of the aircraft . many fell to their deaths after the plane took off. the u. s. did take some who could show they had the right to leave. others gambled on the humanity of the soldiers at the airport. d w's. harry schultz met
1:12 am
a couple who meant to leave with some, but not all of their children. hello less, sophie says he understands those shocking scenes of desperate afghan parents passing their children to american soldiers a cobble airport. i cannot remember people way became because even if anyone would want to live marked for assassination by the islamic state, due to his work on national reconciliation. sophie was among those trying to get his family into the airport on to a plane to promised refuge in the netherlands. sophie was in hiding in late august when he was told in the middle of the night to go to the airport. he tried to gather his family from the different locations where they moved for their safety. his wife missed the call. his brother brought the children who were staying with him, but it was so dangerous at the airport. sophia, initially sent them back. i saw that the people were there was fighting, and the people injured. after 24 hours, he managed to make it onto
1:13 am
a dutch flight with 4 of his children. his wife and the others would be forced to flee through pakistan throughout the ordeal. 20 month old, high and never cried. her father says, treating the trip as a great adventure, which they almost do now starting over in the netherlands to minnesota, tori's doing the same. a gender advisor for the dutch embassy and cobble. she became an asylum seeker over night, literally, despite what her dutch colleagues had promised. i remembered the last night we were with them. how like, you know, like a family, we were there and they were talking to us and then we will be there with you and we will not leave you if something goes wrong. the next day the taliban took control of cobble. when satari and other afghan employees showed up for work, they were alone, no warning, they just left us and we, it was a big shock. the dutch foreign and defense ministers would later resign in acknowledgement of how badly the evacuation effort was managed. fortunately, orders did come through to evacuate satari and her immediate family. it took 3
1:14 am
tries and during taliban beatings, but she says she knew, especially as a woman. that flight was her only hope for survival every time that we were going back, it was so disappointing. and i was like, if i stay here, i will die. even if i, i'm alive. i will not have a life. she's not sure yet what that life will be. she and her family are living in a refugee camp awaiting permanent housing and dutch passports, damina satari and colorless sophie both know as difficult as this was. they are the lucky ones. they speak of their heartbreak at not having been able to help others escape. sofie says 2 of his former colleagues who were not evacuated despite his please have since been killed. authorities and columbia have rescued a rare big cat that might not have otherwise survived in the wild. let's have been working around the clock to nurse the old vinyl juggle. randi come back to health drug warranties are a type of human native to north and south america. but this is thought to be the

1:18 am
hi james. good to see. stocks are edging higher as we approach the end of the year to the markets. feel that i'm a crohn is less of a threat than previously thought. well, i can't really speak on behalf of all of the markets, but evidence would suggest that to be the case is oma cron. less of a threat to the markets. yes, it has been here. the u. s. at least we went from being told to be in fear of a deadly 3rd variance a well, it's more contagious or contagious than delta, but not as deadly to the cdc here, recommending 10 day quarantines for breakthrough cases to now recommending 5 just yesterday we've had hundreds of celebrities, athletes, traitors who on wall street, they've gotten it. they're back on camera, they're back playing sports thousands across the world. have it right here in new york city. there's thousands lining up. they're just being safe. they're being cautious and trying to prevent the sped. but is oma cron less of a threat for the most part here in the united states. it is. now you do have companies like apple here in new york city that announced that it won't let any shoppers physically inside the store regardless of vaccination status. but then you have
1:19 am
a study like today from south africa that said that the omicron infection appears to protect against the built the variant and could displace it. and that's not from my words that's from the africa health research institute. so with all of these mixed messages and all of these mixed headlines, yes, omar crohn fears here in the u. s. are less of a threat than previous lot thought and are pushing the markets higher. and also all you have to do was look at the holiday numbers from yesterday and realize people are still out there shopping. all right, well james, and you're basically just said that i said it's not looking as seriously as previously thought. so this is obs. he playing huge factor in the situation there. yes, it definitely is that stiffly playing a huge factor, the santa close rally was in full effect starting yesterday of 300.350 points. the markets are up to day and again, restrictions they happen to be all over the place here in the u. s. and it's led to a lot of confusion, and that's been since day one. and regarding the confusion with cobit roles, the markets are taking that in and they're trying their best to consider like how can you take this threat seriously, if they don't even know what the threat actually is that they don't know what the
1:20 am
rules actually are to prevent this threat, and that's the real. that's the real concern. here. we have companies again like apple that are not living inside the store, but then you have airliners that are saying give us 5 days reprieve. right? attendance seems like there's a lot going on. james sweeney in new york. thank you for that. well, like much of the world, europe is seeing a shortage of truck drivers. it's causing quite the pinch in supply chains across the continent. in spain, the government is looking at ways to recruit more people into the profession, especially from traditionally under represented groups. this is far from begonia, are manette is 1st time getting behind the wheel. the mother and grandmother has been a truck driver for the last 26 years. i guess it's true that we hear the phrase, you don't look like
1:21 am
a trucker. a lot. it happens to many of us. and why don't i look like a trucker? what must i look like? it's just that you're so tiny, so skinny. i don't need to be tall and fat. they're still a stereotype of the truck or woman's physique. i don't know why we all have to be very butch, very manly. we buddy much. what we'll do, a recent estimate shows europe is missing, 400000 drivers needed to deliver goods. spain, meanwhile, is missing tens of thousands of drivers alone. guy with a miracle, there are fewer and fewer truck drivers. and this is just the tip of the iceberg. there are 10015000 or 20000 truck drivers missing in spain. that's nothing. now. in 10 or 12 years there will be more missing because if the average age of a truck driver in spain today is 50 or 52 years in 10 years, there will be none because there is no generational replacement. they are not making it easier for new people to enter the workforce. many people are invested in getting out ahead of this problem and making the often lonely and difficult job
1:22 am
more attractive. a drivers union recently one a battle with the government and drivers will no longer be required to load or unload their trucks. the government is also looking at ways to attract not only more women, but more young people. both groups are under represented in the industry, but as more drivers retire every year, this fast moving problem has no speed bumps in sight. or the pandemic has brought tough times for the global fashion industry. consumers confined to their home spend less money on clothes, on, shuttered shops couldn't sell them anyway. fashion designers have also been struggling with lucrative showcases often being canceled. we met one such designer in india. videos from 2019, bring back fond memories for a fashion designer blue mika cheda. she was at the top of her game back then with models at india fashion. we can mom by before the pandemic
1:23 am
business was booming. people who have not paid for me. i know that i believe that it is not that invention, not the baby. ah, but they want to, but it just that the dime that difficult slide from my had again, uni every for them that if their businesses are good, if they do good. ah, if they come out of the situation quicker and foster, i think even i'll be in a better position. and then my money can be to leave. the pandemic drove the tourists away to on the street in bombay fashion stores of clothes down in droves. boomy kancheta also had to close her store. everybody, one after the other has closed down the business. oh yeah. and this it ordered was one of i shouldn't have had begun when he does a bit, but giving up is not her style. she could no longer afford her old design and sewing workshop, so she moved her business to
1:24 am
a much smaller location. less than 10 of her 45 sewing machines, remain in operation. and she was only able to keep a handful of employees. you jessie, and deciliter. this is, i will i me, come got the will, the impact on work has been too much. earlier we had a very big staff. we had 110 or 111 people working that way, but i'll be watching shortly. now that's not the situation right now. we only of 8 to 10 people working here as we don't have as much work as before. it's like having no work at all relative like ami made us of luck come cut the me, which will graduate fabrics and patterns fill the store rooms. before the pandemic, the workshop was a roomy, 400 square meters. now the boss can barely find a seat through all my
1:25 am
of i will plan is concern. oh no, i'm not going to shut it. okay. so slowly, gradually. oh, earlier than i used to make for myself, my own brand, and i think for dinner that transition has been to sustain instead of i, i'm making other but i'm sort of him now producing for them. oh, i design and mix them both for the brand on which they give the order. these days boomy, conchita only gets to designed late at night, in one of her shops which she's converted into a grocery store. another step in her crisis management plan. usually new year's eve here in germany is a noisy and colorful affair because of all the fireworks going off. but this year german authorities have again decided to bind the sale of fireworks. so germans are crossing the border into neighboring denmark to buy rockets and buyers or use even
1:26 am
berlin typically goes off with a bang. but the 201920 to curve. it was different in a suburban street, in the midst of crowds of revelers. a huge explosion from a home made bomb, hundreds of thousands of euros of damage. scores of people injured for berlin's authorities. it was the cracker that broke the camel's back. then with the onset of the pandemic authorities feed, the usual stream of wounded would overwhelm hospitals, already groaning under the load of covered cases. and national ban was put in place . but germans just want to have fun via plus and get as event despite everything we want to celebrate the new year. last year it couldn't happen. therefore, we are happy that it's possible this year in germany, we are not allowed to buy fire crackers, but we are allowed to set them off. fuck them up, then decide. so many germans are making
1:27 am
a pilgrimage across the border into denmark to buy their fireworks. ha humble. they come from hamburg, hanover blame and rust stock, dusseldorf, purveyors of pyrotechnics had been worried about their economic plight as denmark prepares for a more subdued and new year's celebration than usual. but now, business is booming. your height that the german customers have helped safe does it . so that's been nice. hemmings in estimates that this year german customers account for 65 percent of the shops turn over. so it looks like, even though the brandenburg gate party is strictly no spectators, nightclubs will be closed and all indoor venues will be off limits to the un vexed germans will still be able to make some noise to welcome in the new year. here's a reminder of the tough business story we're following for you. this. our stock markets are in a feat mode as the year draws to a close investor sense. the impact of the i'm
