COVID-19:infections areworseningeverywhere, warnsUN agency for Palestine refugees
"Covid nineteen infections at bay among Palestinian refugees has never been so crucial as the new school year gets underway the UN. Relief. and Works Agency unrehearsed said in an interview with you and uses Daniel. Johnson. Agency spokesperson tomorrow I'll refi explains how the agency's put changes in place to try and keep safety five point six million people at AIDS across Jordan, Lebanon Syria, and the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Well, Anura has just launched an appeal to raise funds for it to be able. To continue responding to the consequences of covid nineteen, the immediate emergency of course is a health emergency and making sure that the Palestinian refugee community and the staff are all safe. The other immediate emergency is making sure that the Palestinian refugee community has access to all the critical services that's on your what gifts them even though the way we deliver these services has changed. So for instance, needs to have access to medical services, but they can no longer come to the Anura health centers instead on health staff, proceeds through telemedicine and home delivery of. Drugs, right. So people are getting their essential health needs but I think what was most alarming about what you said over the weekend was that the number of covid infections really are starting to spike alarmingly could you make a bit more detail about that owner is very concerned about the spike in numbers of covid nineteen across the countries we work, and so we've seen a spike in the West Bank over the last few weeks but also a spike in Lebanon recently, spy can Gaza with until not very long ago was relatively contained. We also saw a spike in Jordan and Syria would the conflict we hear about. But there is very little data and information coming from there. So everywhere we work seems to be becoming worse and the point is that you're able to keep it at bay if you like the infections of this new corona virus, because you were helping some of the five point, six million registered Palestine Refugees in the middle, East with what they needed to stay at home and keep away from others. So therefore preventing transmission of the virus, but that has now changed because people just literally have to. Get back to work only able to contain largely the outspread of Covid nineteen because we were able to convince people to stay home convinced them meaning delivering to their homes, what they needed whether it's food assistance or whether it's medicine or whether it's distance learning the problem is when the situation took much longer than we thought people needed to go back to work and to their livelihoods Palestine refugees say things like we rather catch covid nineteen than go hungry. Yeah, and you can understand that you of course. You can understand that given the scale of the social economic impact of Covid, nineteen around the world it's only worse on vulnerable communities like refugee communities and in particular Palestinian refugee communities. Another element of your work is obviously education and I know that you commissioner general is very proud of the educational support that you give to what five, hundred thousand Palestinian refugee children. Maybe you could tell me about how they're back to school challenges have panned out whether they're doing remote learning the actually backing class the. Early, signs are all very exciting and very positive students across the fields we work at. Enron are extremely excited to go back to school. We're talking about half a million girls and boys in over seven hundred schools. We're talking about a big cohort of people and a bit cohort of people who work committed in the last academic year to continuing their learning even though it was remote and often difficult. When you're a Palestine refugee, you don't necessarily have an individual tablet and constant internet coverage and yet the. Students that went on learning. Last year was really high and this is something we are very proud of this year. We have several scenarios in place either the children go fully back to school physically while respecting social distancing in hygiene rules and everything where they have a blended approach. So they go for three days to school and they study remotely for three days. We also have a scenario in case the situation gets worse and we have another lockdown where students fully lauren remotely. So we're looking at all scenarios where prepared to mix and match just to continue education and what Would you say in terms of covid exposing the weaknesses of the system of you like we've seen all over the world it's exposed the frailties of already mentioned of people with chronic illness those who don't have a job with some welfare support. What would you say in the five the five areas under works East Jerusalem Gaza Strip Lebanon Syria the West Bank and Jordan let in every crisis. The most vulnerable are the ones who are most put to the test and in the case of Covid nineteen as you said, a lot of the weaknesses of difference systems whether it's health education. Welfare were tested however, some of the strengths of some institutions were also tested in the case of Anura because we have a very long and solid experience and education in emergencies for example, were able to shift very quickly to distance learning and to supporting students and families, and the teachers and the education staff to continue education the same for health services we do have that experience, which unfortunately we took from various wars and conflicts and emergencies, but it's an experience that's helped us well in this lockdown and closure face because of covid nineteen.

Trump Releases His Long-Awaited Middle East Peace Plan
"My vision presents a win win opportunity for both sides president trump in a White House ceremony surrounded by Israeli and Christian leaders but no Palestinian officials unveiled his vision of Israel annexing it settlements in the occupied territory keeping most of Jerusalem and allowing a Palestinian capital in the outskirts of East Jerusalem a realistic two state solution that resolves the risk for Palestinian statehood to Israel's security while the Israeli prime minister was a static there were protests in the west bank and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas said a thousand nose to the proposal calling it nonsense Jackie Quinn Washington
Trump unveils Middle East peace plan with no Palestinian support
"Just before. His team began their final arguments on Capitol Hill today. President trump unveiled a Middle East peace plan at the White House. It's been in the work since two thousand seventeen and the trump administration nation is touting it as the most detailed peace plan ever. The central focus of the plan is to lay the groundwork for two separate states for Israelis and Palestinians but it's conditioned dishes on the Palestinian Authority renouncing terrorism and acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel which has been a sticking point in the past trump made the announcement alongside inside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but no Palestinian officials attended the event Palestinian Authority. President Mahmoud Abbas has already rejected. The plan sang. Jerusalem is not for sale. Joining me now is Wall Street. Journal executive Washington editor Jerry Seib Jerry. Let's talk more about what's in this plan. How what is it compared to previous efforts toward two state solution well it it significant in the first instance because it does call for two state solution and there was some doubt about that? Frankly frankly because you're surely Prime Minister Netanyahu who's very close to President trump had essentially backed away from a two-state solution last year and there are some people who wondered whether our president trump would even endorse a Palestinian state. As part of a solution he did. So that's in keeping with American policy but in other ways it's a significant departure from from the way the US has approached this because it basically decides at the outset before negotiations to even begin what the US position is on. Some of the most contentious issues for example is simply says at the outset that Jerusalem which both the Israelis and the Palestinians claim as their own will be undivided capital of Israel and that the Palestinians this will have to set up their capital in east Jerusalem beyond the boundaries of what is the core city of Jerusalem it also says the Israelis will basically incorporate areas on the West Bank where they have built settlements contested land again that normally has been something. American administrations have said should be settled in the course of negotiations this basically declares at the outset. That Israelis will take that land and similarly says the Israelis will have control the Jordan River valley for security reasons that becomes part part of the state of Israel effectively again. An issue that normally is reserved for negotiations is decided at least in the US view at the outset before the negotiations even begin and so in a way all of these things are designed to be in the words of administration officials realistic but at the same time they create pressure on the Palestinians by saying saying essentially. Look your situation on. The ground is getting worse as the Israelis expand their controlling your territories. So you'd better accept these realities and move onto onto a solution before things are even more dire for your hope for a Palestinian state of your own and notably absent from. Today's event at the White House were any Palestinian in representatives. How does this plan go forward? One side isn't at the table yet. Well that's another significant departure you know in the past past administrations have tried this and by the way Donald Donald Trump becomes the tenth president who tried to solve the Israeli Palestinian dispute. So there's a long line of futility here but in the past administrations have approached this point by at least having conversations with the Palestinians to get some idea of what ballpark they might be able to play in. That's not happening in this case because the Palestinians have simply stopped talking to the trump administration. Shen haven't talked to the trump administration for the last two years so this is an attempt to put out a plan and then hope the Palestinians come to it. How realistic is that? Well that depends. I think in enlarge measure on how other parties other Arab states respond. And whether they nudge the Palestinians toward at least having a conversation about this or on whether the Palestinians themselves decide that time really is running out and even though they don't like many things in this idea and they certainly don't like the trump administration. Maybe this is the only game left laughed better play so what does happen next. This is intended to start a discussion period right. Yeah and you know. Interestingly the trump administration is basically constructed structed this in a way in which they can say. We have four years to get this done. There's a long time here because they have convinced. The Israelis apparently to basically friesland not to expand into new Palestinian lands for four years to freeze everything in place for four years in hopes that in that timeframe there will be a start of negotiations and completion of the message of the Palestinians has been. Look you don't like this. You're not at the table now. Just take some time digest. This and things won't get worse on the ground for a while here while you decide what you're going to do but you ought to come to the table and we're going to give you space to work out something here by creating a kind of a four year window window and the hope is the Palestinians will eventually come through that for your window Jerry. A final note on the timing of the unveiling of this planet happened just before president. Trump's uh-huh defense team began their closing arguments in the Senate impeachment trial and ahead of a parliamentary vote on Benjamin Netanyahu's request for immunity from corruption and other charges. What what do you make of the timing well? Skeptics are going to point to the timing in both the US and Israel as the real reason this was put out that president trump is under pressure because of impeachment and Israeli Prime Minister. Netanyahu is under pressure because he's just been indicted and is trying to save his job and so that both of them needed a kind of diversion on the world diplomatic stage and this provides it for them and so of course the administration is denying. That's why this has come out now. They're essentially saying you know we needed to move ahead and the Israeli situation wasn't going to clear up soon so why not now but one of the reasons. I think people are going to be skeptical about. This is precisely the timing and the political circumstances in which this is being introduce both in the US and in Israel Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib thank you so

"International Criminal Court chief prosecutor says she will open an investigation into alleged allege warcrimes in the Palestinian territories and Pierce Daniel Estrin reports from Tel Aviv. Israeli officials are condemning the decision the International Criminal Court chief prosecutor spent nearly the five years considering whether to open a war-crimes investigation at the request of Palestinian authorities now icy prosecutor. Fatou Ben. Souda says she's decided to open an investigation. I am satisfied that war crimes have been or are being committed in the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza streep this could include crimes committed by Israelis and Palestinians. Earlier this month the prosecutor singled out both Palestinian officials welcomed the court's decision Isreaeli Prime Minister.

Trump Reverses U.S. Position on Israeli Settlements in West Bank
"The trump administration is up ended four decades of US foreign policy in the Middle East Secretary State. Mike Pompeo said yesterday that Israeli settlements are no longer violation of international law. Roughly seven hundred hundred thousand Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Land that is also claimed by Palestinians. Israeli leaders welcomed the trump administration's decision and Palestinians as well as nations across the world warned that the move undermines hope for a broader peace deal joining us from Tel Aviv. Is Dan Shapiro. The former. US ambassador entertain Israel under President Obama ambassador. What makes his shift in policy so important? The truth is is that it's more symbolic than actual every every administration since the Carter Administration voiced their opposition to Israeli settlement construction the West Bank without making reference to the legal question on policy grounds. What's what's important about it? However is that it seems to give green light? And that's quite different from any previous administration to significant expansion of Israeli settlement and at a time when and advocates for Israeli settlement expansion are also talking about unilateral annexation of the West Bank or portions of the West Bank. Clearly those steps would make it much much harder to ever achieve a two-state solution and since president trump has never endorsed a two-state solution. It appears to be a continuation of an effort essentially to move us away from that track and kill off that option. What reaction have you heard about this announcement in Israel and the occupied territories for many Israelis? They are appreciative of of it because at least some Israeli settlements are not particularly controversial. There consensus points in Israel. The ones that are larger and closer to the pre nineteen sixty seven. Evan borders and which most peace plans have envisioned Israel retaining a kind of a land swap but overall it's consistent with the Israeli view that settlements are not illegal under international law And so it's been received positively by both the prime minister and the leader of the opposite. And what about Palestinians. What what what about opinion in the West Bank Palestinians Certainly strongly oppose any settlement construction. They always have. They weren't thrilled with the policy of previous administrations. Either either that didn't focus on the illegal question And also didn't necessarily succeed in stopping Israeli settlement but I think they view this decision by the trump administration shen as the latest in a series of blows to the administration's ability to serve as any kind of mediator in the final days of the Obama Administration under which you served as ambassador answers Israel The US allowed the UN Security Council to pass a resolution declaring the settlements a flagrant violation of international law. If that was the feeling feeling of the Obama White House why wait until the final days of eight years of making policy to ratchet things up and that was an abstention on a resolution that the Obama Administration did not draft but came at a time when there were settlement expansions Happening every previous administration also found itself in a situation in which Security Council resolutions came before them which included language which was not identical to US policy but which ultimately abstained on and allowed to To pass because the United States has been quite isolated on this question about illegality of Israeli settlements of reasonably the rest of the world. Well Jared Kushner's peace plan it turns out to be a little more than a flashy economic program with no clear road map to peace there. Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital the relocation of the US embassy a to Jerusalem and the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic office in Washington and The declaration that the Golan Heights Israeli sovereign territory when you stack all this up up. What is US policy in the Mideast? you know the administration has Held out the prospect of plan that would lay out their policy for now on nearly three years That plans never been presented. And it's not clear at ever will be presented but every indication is that the trump administration's view of the end state of that. It hopes to see in this part of the world is Isreaeli annexation of a wide swaths of the West Bank in where settlements exist and even beyond those areas and around that isolated islands of a limited Palestinian autonomy. Are you describing a one state solution. And it's not a solution It's probably a one St outcome where we might call a binational state outcome. It also is not very sustainable in my judgment and it won't be the policy of successor administration perhaps as early as fourteen months from now if if a Democratic president takes office so elaborate on on that where do you see hope for a two state solution still it would take tremendous leadership from Israeli and Palestinians and with American support from Arab leaders to first of all convince very disillusioned public's that it's even possible. None of this possible in the current leadership constellation in fact I think a realistic policy of the next administration if it's Wants to restore the two state. Solution is the center to the American is not to say we want to achieve a two-state solution. But rather we want to find ways to stabilize it and keep it alive for later at the moment two-state solution certainly not in the cards. That risk is that it goes over the cliff and is not achievable even later when a different and boulder leadership is in place Dan Shapiro the former. US Ambassador to Israel under President Obama. Thanks very much for your thoughts. My pleasure thank thank you.
Palestinians Outraged as U.S. Softens Stance on Israeli Settlements
"Palestinians have expressed outrage after the U. nineteen states that it no longer believes that Jewish settlements in the Israeli occupied territories are illegal the announcement was made by secretary of state Mike Pompeii it reverses forty years of US policy and puts Washington at odds with the U. N. and particularly the E. U. as well the BBC's bomber flight asa is attorney is now live from Jerusalem to give us the reaction that up over what are you hearing what difference will this make a guess it depends very much on which side of the fence you're hearing this news from yeah I think the response is it is what we would expect this decision was a victory for the prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and he prays did in this historic achievement he said it corrected and injustice its agencies the Jewish people had the right to live in the west bank and East Jerusalem because it was a historical homeland his opponent is political opponent Benny Gantz also welcomed the decision although some other Israeli lawmakers raised concerns that this would make of finding any sort of peace with the Palestinians even more remote and they certainly respond in that way the Palestinian officials denounced it they said that the US was not authorized to qualified to negate international law to give it legitimacy to Israeli settlements you also have some Palestinian militant groups weighing in saying this this mark to the effective end of the Oslo peace process and that the Palestinians should return to its strategy of resistance and as you mentioned the E. U. was against the move it condemned it said settlement building was illegal under international law and some democratic lawmakers also came out against the decision which does worry some Israelis because I feel it will deepen the partisan divide in the United States over Israel this is not a surprise because that you know the direction of travel full this US administration has been very much along these lines hasn't it we've seen to rescind recognizes it you know it is Israel's capital with the movement of the of the US embassy that we've had to Israel being kind of given the not over the Golan Heights as well this contest it's terra terra tree and and Mike Pompeii is saying well actually what way we've been the situation we've had on turned international law hasn't approaches piece so is there any arguments for this actually being a progressive move towards some kind of new future why isn't Mr put pay said that the state department had done a review of past US positions one of which was the initial one which found at settlements to be legal and then under Reagan they were found to be legitimate to now they decided the state department that they are not illegal although they didn't give any legal argument he didn't anyway to back that up you're right he he give more of a practical argument he said it hasn't worked this is a political problem that needs to be solved in direct negotiations rather than stymied by just disagreement over international resolutions but of course the result of that is that it will give the Israelis the upper hand because they are the stronger party and he referred specifically to Israeli courts settling this again which will not Sam get reassure Palestinians at all I mean it is consistent with the trump administration's approach the reports here that it was pushed by the US ambassador to Israel David Friedman Friedman who who's well known to support the settlement projects and the idea apparently was to raise the Obama legacy because just where he left off as he did not veto a U. N. security council resolution that said Israeli settlement activity was a flagrant violation of international law so where does this leave us I mean clearly nobody wants of the violence to escalate but you're given what you've just been telling us from both sides that seems like an inevitability sadly well what could happen is it could boost the drive for settlements and and and perhaps also for an exhortation of the settlements because that is something that Mr Netanyahu's constituency support so could give a green light to what is already happening in terms of settlement construction and planning and that was sharply increasing since president trump took office in terms of the Palestinian response aren't we may see protests possibly there was a pretty muted response to Mr trump's decision to recognize the that the Jerusalem was Israel's capital and I've asked about that and I'm told that people just don't feel if they go to the street will change anything it doesn't mean they accept it over thank you thank you seize upon our plight awesome joining us live from Jerusalem
Netanyahu puts West Bank at heart of election strategy
"I want to start with the Financial Times article Netanyahu puts west bank at heart of election strategy talking about the five hundred thousand Israelis who have moved to the west bank two hundred thousand more being built in Arab East Jerusalem the Financial Times is clearly not happy with that has the prime minister put the west bank settlements of the heart of his election strategy no I think he's put other thing at the heart of the settlements are part of the heart but if the part and that the big battle in Israel you it's over the right wing I think ever explain this before on your program do it quickly Israel has the largest per capita youth population under the age of thirty eight any industrialized country in the world this huge youth population doesn't remember bookings process doesn't number the handshake means remember the only Israel withdrawing territory in return not getting he's getting her getting rockets getting suicide bombers so we have a youth population which is unique in the industrialized world because it's a right wing population and all the politicians want to appeal to that huge constituency and what a way to do it it is for example building settlements which is a right wing popular position so that is what this is about and that's the big fight it's not like repairs what with versus black white wing versus even more right existing all right so let's then go to what the president said two days ago which is Jews about Democrats are wrong and disloyal and he didn't say it at home but the implication was to Israel and I pointed out that that's an anti semitic truck that goes back a long way and then yesterday he said any Democrat or anyone who votes for Democrat you mean everybody a vote for a Democrat are being disloyal and wrong to Israel what do you make of this exchange this controversy Mike or having begun your life is an American you're now on Israeli have served in the river Israeli army or a senior government official in Israel when the president talks like this do you cringe and you say I understand the thing I cringe I could I could look what does not expect Americans used oil is rich I can use American loyal to the United States we want the support of American used it like like what the for all Americans tions welcome to visit here but loyalty I know and that particular quote it is problematic because the president saying the Medicaid you're not loyal to the I. states which is bad or that they're not loyal to Israel which they shouldn't be anyway because it's the Cup next spec American Jewish loyalty in that way so it's a very very problematic quote and I think that is really about the set list we deeply appreciate having the president has done for this country Jerusalem and you wanted to you and everything he has done but we would prefer to stay out of the weekly polarizing a political event and debate in the United States I think this whole idea of dragging Jewish royalties into this debate is it really goes back straight enough to president Obama brought it in during the the new look the debate over the nuclear deal in two thousand fifteen when he gave a speech in Washington to Jewish crap we said well I represent your values which values out those Jewish values led to the Iran nuclear deal therefore you American Jews six report you're right the audion nuclear deal and not support this guy in Israel this method now god doesn't represent we're being dragged back even then and it's only gotten worse well the precipitating comments for all this are those of Ilan Omar and and refused to leave and you and I talked about last week let them in but say where they can go which is what ended up happening they said represented to leave and go see a grandmother represent all market command and and the controversy is not subsided here what do you make of the government's decision your government's decision not to admit them and then to admit to leave and then the aftermath the backwash in the United States yeah fortunately our our decision is the gift that keeps on giving that the plate in all markets and to BDS which is an organization that aspires to destroy us not to reach a better peace between us and the Palestinians so it's been a a self inflicted wound what can I say and and it keeps on getting that way and that you know played in all my keep on going on hello keep on going for the media crying complaining and calling for for boycotting Israel cutting off aid we in certain ways built them up and I think we have to draw some very serious conclusion of lessons from that and so you in the future let the men in control where they got all however I I do think it is impossible to keep Israel out of partisan politics the United States I know that's been the policy it is rare for a long time to encourage the A. it's its support for the organization to try to be non partisan in their support of Israel but I don't think that's that's possible Michael do you I I I fear not I don't know if anything could be bipartisan anymore I'm not even sure you know clean air can be

Palestinians trapped in coercive environment, says UN rights official
"This is loose. Graffiti of UN news, many Palestinians, living under his rarely occupation suffer from a course of environment were settlements expansion has made people's lives. So unbearable that they feel pressured to move according to a top u n official there James Heenan, head of the UN human rights office in the occupied Palestinian territory said that permits for building in the West Bank were almost non-existent now for Palestinians, speaking to Reema Bauza of UN news in Jerusalem. Mr. Heenan explains the challenges Palestinians routinely face today in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip was buying and then he's truce Lamon Gaza will have their own different types of human rights challenges. But some of the challenges of calling across the whole area. One is use of force another is freedom of movement. Another is the way in which space society and human rights defenders dramatically, and if we talked specifically about Gaza, what are the issues that were you the most widely the buzz is really hope for the population Gazans feel and are under pressure from old photos at the moment, they are suffering from an eleven year blockade and closures imposed by Israel. They suffering essentially also under the split between the West Bank and Gaza, the political split and the the factor thirties in Gaza, Mike loss, very hard for a number of people, including human rights defenders for us. The concern for Gaza is all about. Allowing people to have an adequate standard of living, which is a human rod under the ICCPR international could covenant uncivil political rights and towards that end. The UN is working tool to humanitarian response to what's going on in Gaza. Ultimately, of course, it's a political problem humanitarian, what are the other human rights challenges specific to the West Bank and east Jerusalem at the moment, the biggest human rods challenges are generated by settlements the expansion of settlements. And we produced two reports a year on this. In and of itself creates a number of human rights violations. So for example, severance themselves are violations of international, we know that. But when you establish a settlement in areas c in the West Bank, he generally brings populations into proximity brings a settlers into proximity with the local Palestinians, and we know that that proximity generates things like settle of items the take over of land blocking the freedom of movement. The Palestinians nearby things like the blocking of access to services for Palestinians nearby. So the settlement enterprises people call it doesn't just have a problem with the Silverton themselves, but the impact on human rights. The biggest thing that's happening. Most recently is what we call the environment where you have a desire to move, Tulsa and communities for the purposes of settlement expansion or creation. What's happened at the long pass? I communities would have just been forcibly moved. Now. What's happening is those communities are put on the enormous pressure. So feel I have no choice but to move, and that's what we call. The course environment. This comes from the jury's prudence of you hate Trump troubles on the former Yugoslavia this idea that you can make lifestyle bearable for people through combination factors. They feel they have to. So for example, if you have a community near settlement sky to expand they can be subject to settle labontes. They can be subject to demolitions. So they cannot build in the West Bank term ability in the West Bank. But I'll sit ins are almost nonexistent. So any expansion they come undertake the young people get married. They can't start the village because there's no it to live. They can't expect access to services are blocked a firing zone can be declared by military nearby, which will mean that they can't access they land. And it can also mean that there is actual live far near the village which is dangerous last year. We had a sixteen year old boy killed by unexploded ordinance of this in the field. A combination of all of these factors all of which are human rights violations as well. Jen at their base makes life extremely difficult for people, and you see that people are leaving because of this. We know type in the West Bank of people on the huge amount of pressure to leave, and we know cases in Hebron where families of decided to move. Now each case has to be looked at all it's merits businesses, very serious mental. And the thing is Palestinians have a very very strong resilience. So they don't move easily. But it doesn't mean that the pressure is not there for them to move. And we're concerned I'm concerned that saw these communities will feel they have to move at some point. We'll talk about the courts environment. What does your office do on that issue? We have not see role an illegal role. Yeah. I think the office has been instrumental in bringing together this idea and making sure that there's a common understanding about what environments based on the jurisprudence of into. National tribunals, we track the quiz environment that patents to see what's happening through the violence. Not just the instances of settler violence. But also, the trends, and we analyze trends, and we publish them. We are mandated by the UN to be public about these things. What is the final message would like to express? I think the involvement globally. Is not supportive of human rights to seem to be. Since some places ideology, the pasta or system in the past. And you hear a lot said about that these days, but as Kofi man once said, it's not it's not people who so human rights is relevant. It's usually governments he said even real and for us. It's more relevant than ever that not just our office. But everyone stands up for human rights because the car is very very worrying.
