10:32 am
there's of trade you're a. junkie is the director of public affairs so all the channel tunnel carries a loss high value the perishable the just in time components for manufacturing the express deliveries the internet retail so companies can actually manage their stock in a constantly moving process that saves them from having warehousing saves them enormous costs and it means that they can have these integrated businesses that operate across the whole of europe. the pole area after the 5 kilometers is like this. previously we had to the boundary fence sort of thing you see around any factory or any industrial site then. people started to try and break down the fences so the answer was increased the quality says these are the standard high security fences a very difficult cut very different crime so we now have
10:33 am
a very sophisticated fencing and surveillance operation. and since october last year we've had no disruption from the migrant process what about the refugees who came from syria from either mainly from greece who are actually also trying justify the better life their future problem is something which is a geopolitical issue so we're we're company in the business that operates between folks in cali we're not we don't have a role a major role in solving the refugee crisis that's for governments international institutions to move to manage we have a role a responsibility to our customers to our shareholders to our own staff and to anybody who's on our side. your internal security is now a seamless operation involving french and u.k. forces relationship established only after the company sued the government in a special for putting forth over questions as to exactly where that responsibility
10:34 am
cutting. how much response from security on a shelf. and so. there was a case in the international from patricia. early 2000 and that the president set the record for the state of that responsibility. obviously from the perspective of the company you're a title it makes sense to ask the boss to be covered from the state because in the 1st place the state was responsible for the refugee crisis but it's very interesting to see what is precisely the mechanism which is being used here in order to get the costs being covered by the state. court of arbitration or to britain and france to pay your account of $25000000.00 for the cost of securing against migrants in the late ninety's. this is highly controversial so i'm
10:35 am
going to the heart of the e.u. process to talk to someone who knows how the secret process is for. that court this part of the investor state dispute settlement mechanism known as the ice d.s. which allows companies to sue states when their profits are tried to. the whole point about the investor state dispute mechanism is that it runs outside the court system it's about a special sort of law for big corporations i.z.'s is part of that it i stare says it's part of the t.t. ip so for most of the ordinary people if you mention something such as to tip. they will not understand what it is about ok i would say tip is the transatlantic trade and investment partnership and it's a major trade deal on the bill being discussed now between the european union and the united states it has all sorts of implications you know from the food you ate
10:36 am
the medicines you take the vehicles that you drive the energy that you have animal welfare whether you want to keep genetically modified organisms out of your crops you know if the worst comes to the worst and some of the big corporations get what they want. this really is a could be a potential real rollback of a lot of the very valuable legislation that a lot of people who fought over the years to get in the european here ok here follow your. supporters on the other hand say that harmonization of regulations will drop the european economy by tens of billions of dollars a year. so i thought it would be sensible to see the document and gene agreed to take me to the reading room for members of the european parliament it's not open to the public in any sort of way. you only get access to the documents if the institutions documents they are gives you permission. going.
10:37 am
so if the united states says we're not willing to let you see our documents you don't going to see that. it's taken a massive european wide grassroots campaign for any peace to be allowed to see the text of the t.t.p. agreement. and even now it was pulling hard to find. that's that's the number that i was going to blow up there may be no where is that if you're already the living room. because what we were told was forcing 17 but obviously that's a. no no ok. i came. back they only got half instructions it's opposite force the $70.00 ok let's show you that you got to get over there was. no it's not that one line up at the top of that place then it's you want to. let.
10:38 am
me go to the. yes and no she says we can't film here. what is this that if you will it grow. no he confirms it is there all the huge trade agreement is behind and find a bill unmarked door with a security keypad. thanks as a minister of finance of greece of one of the member states who was affected by these negotiations i had to sign a non-disclosure agreement promising that i would not reveal to my constituents the my voters that which i read if i was allowed to have a look at those negotiating documents this is preposterous and this is this is this is that the announcement of the democratic process representatives in
10:39 am
a representative democracy keeping with the most of the that they represent in complete darkness about what they're saying on their behalf. so why all the secrecy we can leaks has exposed the t.t.p. and its siblings the transpacific partnership and a similar deal covering services so you're going to risk your trolling times. for dorian embassy in london he explains why we only know about disagreements from leaks these big teeth 3 agreements peter beattie i think and t.v. . kept secret because otherwise there were injuries democratic opposition in the population and they won't be possible to negotiate you can come to conclusion i mean it's pretty obvious what do they tell us about the new global order and what
10:40 am
their deaths on democracy these are the most significant. plan to reorder the legal and economic structure of the west and friends. at least since the construction of europe the nature of the agreements is a construction of a new legal and economic block or ultra neo liberal system which will which will cement culture and your liberalism within your and a wide range of other countries in treaty form and treaties are very very hard to change because you need agreement of all the countries participating intreated change it so it is that the end of any other political project because only by violating the rule of law by tearing up these treaties that you've agreed to that in fact you can proceed in a different political direction i don't think this process could be described as
10:41 am
colonialism as a new kind in a way of colonialism yes it's a new multi-national colonialism behind exactly. these trade agreements reveal hidden mechanisms to be true of this on the one hand colonized by multinational companies and financial institutions and on the other hand polonaise and itself. however these very same forces are behind a more traditional style of colonization which is not through trade agreements but for bombs and wars. the u.s. british and french air strikes against president cut off in libya in 2011 swept away a regime that was controlling migrant fulls from africa into least huge amounts of weapons into an already unstable region. the females suggest the real reasons for francis involvement are less than humanitarian. gadhafi had
10:42 am
accumulated more than 143 tons of gold and was planning to use this to introduce. an african diana as an alternative currency to the franc in francophone africa so this was a threat to french colonial worst. desires within the francophone countries. this reveals precisely how the refugees are linked to europe's economic crisis apart from being some kind of a natural disaster as for or a flood it is europe's colonial behavior abroad that forces them to make that dangerous journey. and gary and philosopher agnes heller has lived through a lot of european history including losing her father in auschwitz she says the refugees challenge europe's core idea of itself. in the 18th century already and of
10:43 am
1st constitution of france to write to rights became lexx law to have heard in the constitution the right of man daron and the right of the citizen drug to sit so i am the program yes now does that to add in a conflict situation in europe that they do other men. right would the basic a lot like us to think or done a future yes because they are indeed the men like us they are like us they are born with reason and conscience and the eco right to liberty and to free and to all kind of freedoms and to live just like us so we have to lead them in and they are the hand the inventors also the right of citizens in their country and his dear citizens should decide who can and that their territory are not this is the right old us it is at the 1st time in our history short of his started 200 years has
10:44 am
learned it occurred that the right of man and the right of his insisted or out of the charter of course you a good government can persuade a citizen to give priority to human rights a better government like us where is who is the citizen not to forget of are 2 of my mates general. so maybe the danger they pose is not that one or even 2000000 people. or 500000000. but because admitting we should provide for these fellow humans would reveals how europe's own citizens have been stripped of their resources and democracy by this financial colonization. and that is a. look at how the anger and frustration this generates is manifesting itself political on both sides of the spectrum. and search out
10:45 am
some hope for europe's future. we don't want the state involved because this is a. movement of people in fact in charge of one here not something to do. 2 2 what went wrong in society that opened up the space for the immigrant ratio is the european parliament it's not accountable and it's impossible for the people to bear that is falling apart people don't want to take more of that lead and the forefront of strong demand are songs woman who are getting the growth of rejectionism of this world because the model doesn't work europe's forbidden colony episode 2 on al-jazeera.

10:48 am
a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else working for it as you know it's very challenging but in the particular because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended used to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. this is al-jazeera. this is the al-jazeera news our live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes. spurred on by airstrikes that hits a migrant attention center the u.n.
10:49 am
security council calls on libya's warring sides to commit to a cease fire are. competing rallies mark venezuela's independence day opposition protesters are countered by a military show of force led spy presidents material. america's cold a state struggles to cope with the heat wave and wildfires that have smothered large areas with smoke plus the birthplace of rulers and tennis days since the earliest days of civilization is the cleared a world heritage sites. but 1st the u.n. security council has condemned the attack on a migrant attention center in libya it's cold all the warring sides to commit suicide. far for the 1st time since warlord khalifa haftar his forces launched an
10:50 am
offensive to seize the capital tripoli 3 months ago well video has emerged showing the moments when the airstrikes hit that camp near tripoli own cheese day 60 people were killed and more than 100 others were injured at tripoli's u.n. recognized government says have to his forces are responsible they say they were targeting a nearby weapons that go in didn't give orders to hit the shelter where the world health organization says almost a 1000 people have been killed since after began his offensive back in april now it's been 3 days since the airstrike on cheese day for a unifies us security council response to a margin this comes amid reports that say u.s. objections the latest statements condemning that attack well bred old says following developments from the u.n.
10:51 am
headquarters in new york you could put this in the category of better late than never on wednesday the u.n. security council met for more than 3 hours behind closed doors but was unable to come up with a statement on the airstrike against the migrant detention center in tripoli now they have done so and in addition to condemning the air raid the security council urges all sides in libya to commit to a cease fire it says lasting peace tense the civility in libya will only come through political solutions and the also the council gave something of an admonition to other countries without naming any of them but telling him not to interfere in libyan affairs it said that the council call for full respect for the arms embargo by all member states and called on all countries not to intervene in the conflict or take any measures that exacerbated. well libya's been torn apart by
10:52 am
conflict since longtime ruler muammar gadhafi was overthrown in 2011 is divided between warring militia groups which mostly back to rival governments the un recognized administration lands by prime minister fires also raj is based in tripoli it's supported by turkey and most western nations including italy which is worried the fighting near tripoli will force more people to cross the mediterranean in the east there's the brute based governments the center of power for warlord the have there he's backed by egypt saudi arabia russia and the united arab emirates and france is also accused of providing military support to his forces while turkey's president richard tayyip erdogan has been hosting the tripoli government's prime minister fires also raj in istanbul to reiterate his supports he calls again
10:53 am
after and his forces to pull back from the libyan capital well let's stay with this william lawrence is a professor at stores washington university's elliott school of international affairs he joins me now from providence rhode island and 1st of all what do you make of the fact that it took 3 days for the u.n. security council to call for a cease fire. well there are a number of reasons for this but one was that secretary of state pompei all had been burned once before when he had made statements condemning the eastern attack on tripoli undermined by president trump's phone call to have to are just a couple of days later and so twice once bitten twice shy pompei o did hesitate and endorsing any un statement and a couple of extra days were taken to deal with various aspects of this resolution
10:54 am
but the most important one being to be sure that the trumpet ministration would back this support for a mediated solution and a non military solution to the libyan conflict it's very important that the americans the russians the chinese the french and the brits all got together on this statement and it will have some degree of positive effects even if we don't get back to the negotiating table right away and it's not just within the the u.s. though there appear to be several mixed messages coming from foreign powers when it comes to which governments in libya to support still you think that foreign powers are actually fueling this conflict. no question there are american weapons on both sides chinese drones on both sides russian weapons on both sides and a number of the both the p 5 at the security council and number of the other nations that you mentioned and some others are doing things that violate the un
10:55 am
embargo and impact what's going on on the ground and so again this u.n. resolution doesn't solve anything but it may put the brakes on the most egregious actions so take for example france france was supporting have to or with some robustness until early april but they've stepped back their support significantly maybe down to almost 0 except for certain counterterrorism operations russia has put a halt on a number of its efforts and there was an interesting arrest just today i think or yesterday in tripoli a russian. representative who was trying to talk to say for slam to see if he could be a candidate to live in elections so this could show some russian questions about their support for have to are a lot going on on the ground right now and it's clear that nations are looking to be opportunistic but not be to agree just in their violations of these
10:56 am
international agreements do you think the attack on the migrant detention center represents a terror points at all or is this this deadlock mates likely to continue. i don't think it's a turning point but it's a very important moment because it shines a spotlight on a conflict that a lot of people weren't paying attention to and on a disastrous migration policy that europe is conducting which certain european publications like people are now saying is worse than the american migration policy down on the mexican border so right now the hero in the mediterranean is this german boat captain who forced the italians to take migrants rescued at sea hundreds of marines continue to die at sea you know over the course of a year and of course we had the large number of killed and injured among the
10:57 am
$5000.00 currently being detained in libya about 3000 of those in the tripoli area and we should point out that have forces have the coordinates of these detention centers and they were hit anyway and so there are many questions being asked now about the both the migration policy and the libya policy and that's a good thing that spotlights are being shined and and lack of positive policy is being exposed well questions are being asked and many people were of course horrified to see. a detention facility being bowman's when the coordinates were there but again we return to this issue that there does not seem to be any progress made on any sides do you think it will say that the un has been saying that a political solution is needed but what's the way i would see if this is a political solution even possible with so many competing interests.
10:58 am
it is possible we had a political agreement signed in 2015 which is been mostly blocked by general have to have the commander from the east if a duff pressure was put on have to or you could see at least a ceasefire being reached and eventually amendments to the existing political agreement could be reached but right now have to her isn't singing the right notes and isn't conducting himself in a way that indicates that he's ready to make peace sometimes you need more pressure or more negative stories to come to light before enough pressure can be put on him and to that end i should say that have to are now has the large lawsuit against him in the united states other lawsuits in europe investigations being called for at the u.n. level the u.s. level in the european level and they need to be increasing pressure on both sides to behave better and in particular and have to are to be serious about going back
10:59 am
to the negotiating table william loren some of it will have to leave it there but it was great to get your views thank you very much indeed for joining us on al-jazeera my pleasure. well as we heard there from william laurance libya remains a major point of departure for migrants hoping to reach europe by sea now malta agreed to take in 54 of them who were rescued off the coast of libya on thursday they'd been stuck at sea for some time on italy and malta argued over who should let their rescue ship dog on return for accepting this latest group malta says a similar number of migrants already in its territory will be sent soon it's a lady and as we heard a german rescue ship has picked up another 65 people from an overloaded dinghy off the libyan coast rescuers say that boats has insufficient drinking water and no
11:00 am
navigation system the people are no receiving care on board the rescue vessel italy has already warned the ship against trying to dog one of its ports for the news now an opposition leaders in sudan are holding a series of public meetings to explain why they signed a power sharing deal with the military somebody tester's up in it celebrating the agreements but others consider it a surrender the final details will be revealed on monday but here's what we know so far a sovereign council will be set up with a rotating leadership between the military and civilians it will begin in 3 months and operate for 3 years leading up to presidential and parliamentary elections the sovereign can so we'll have 11 members they include 5 military represents to.
