So in that sense i think we will see more concentration of in kabul and provinces or regions with with ethnic minority. They will not get as many rights as as might be envisioned under a decentralized system.

Say that respect and tropical depression. Greece passed through. There are rockslides. Mudslides tremendous number if damaged buildings. Can you describe what you've seen or you've spoken with since you've got there and what they've been telling you yeah. People are in very very dire need shelter. People need clean water. They need food. What we're seeing is just a significant natural disaster here. The emergency conditions are not great and the fact that this tropical depression moved through is really making it challenging for us to respond. I was over rocky rules there. You know muddy fisher's. I think that we go through about a foot of water at one point in time just trying to get people who are in need and then everywhere you folks who are just looking for some assistant christie would have people need most in the town you're at. What are the most urgent needs that you see well in the location where i am now live you know about half of the people have lost their homes completely and nearly every home has been damaged in some way so the first thing people are doing to us about is a need for shelter assistance though some kinds of tarp or immaterial to immediately take care of their home. Construction materials to rebuild. Additionally people are really in need of clean water food blankets that kind of thing. And what is your plan and mercy course plan of action for the coming days and weeks. What's your specific priority. Well our first step is to bring people much of the sort of essentials as we can so whether that's clean water we've got kids coming. That have purpose blankets and other household essentials but we know that every individual was affected differently in different people have different needs as a result of that will be shifting as quickly as we can providing emergency cash assistance. And what this does is it allows the individual families to purchase what they need most and how that toys to replace what they have lost and support their families in the way that it's going to be most helpful for them. Finally in terms of the bigger picture in recent years. Haiti has gone through a lot. Of course the two thousand ten earthquake but also political upheaval. And now this.

I think that as in the united states and other countries we've started to be more widespread access to vaccines. We'd be taken for granted. That's not always an option and it certainly isn't a option here. They've only just recently started to get accion. Generally speaking what we're looking for is for the international community to really stand up and support haiti to learn to give to support the response. We know that he has some potential and we want to support the people here. Mercy corps is della field talking with us from lucille haiti near the epicenter of the recent earthquake. Thank you so much speaking with us. Thank you this is the world. I'm carol hills. This is the world. American health officials may soon recommend that everyone get a booster shot for covert nineteen. That possibility is sparking debates nationally and worldwide. The world's alana gordon covers global health for our show and joins us. Now lotta booster shots means in some cases a third shot. Even if you've already had two shots. Is that happening anywhere around the globe at this point. Yeah for cova. Nineteen israel just started a booster shot campaign for people over fifty years old. And that's a main place where people have their eye on because israel started really early on when vaccines came out vaccinating population. Here the us. That's been authorized just recently for people who are immuno-compromised and now just to clarify on this new proposal of a booster for everyone. That's not gone through an fda process or through the main immunisation advisory committee. I just wanna be clear on that but what appears to be going on. Is that scientists in the us are in part looking at data from israel and what they've been learning there and what have they learned. Scientists i've spoken to have told me that early data again. It's very imperfect that vaccine effectiveness against severe disease appears to wane a bit over time for people who are over the age of fifty five and just to be clear unvaccinated people who are far more likely to wind up hospitalized dying but that's a piece of information that scientists are looking at so are most scientists on board with boosters. The situation is super tricky right now. There are splits. I talked with dr carlos. Del rio about the possibility of moving forward with boosters. He's dean and professor at emory. School of medicine are not sure what we need to be doing. On an auto north doing listers will make you less likely to be infected with delta. Alpha's spoke with dr salim calendar. She's an infectious disease specialist at nyu and served on biden's cova transition taskforce. She says there's a case to be made for people who are really immuno-compromised to get a third shot before everyone else. She wants murcia again. There's a lot of unknowns though. There is something she's really clear about. You actually optimize individual protection by optimizing community immunity and to do that. You need to have much more even spread of vaccine across the population. So the real booster so to speak would be doing a better job of vaccinating those who remain unvaccinated and so globally. We're still in a place where there's a lot of uneven distribution of vaccines where lots of the world remains unvaccinated. What's been the global response to talk boosters from many. it's outreach. The world health organization has been calling for a moratorium on all losers until ten percent of the population globally as vaccinated. Dr tiling lang mofokeng is the un special rapporteur on the right to health lodge pollution's of people in the world who have yet to receive a single. Does she spoke today about this very issue during a press conference calling attention to the fact that right now carol places like south africa are not getting access even to the vaccines that are being made in the country. They're going to europe and the west and now we're talking about more demands because boosters because it's a win so many people around the world have already been lift out of the vaccine dole out it. It would really deepen existing in equities and in fact as we always say if you protect one region of the world you as shooting yourself in the foot because lewis gains will be very short-lived and so it's a real bind. You have individual and national interests to protect the population but that may mean that. The virus circulates more and other places leads to new variants and potentially put this back where we started. The world's a lot of gordon. Thank you very much. You're welcome carole. Japanese officials are now gearing up for the paralympics. That kicks off next week and runs through september. But you have to wonder if japan's prime minister joseph suge is eager to get all this behind him. He's struggling with an olympic sized headache. A large number of japanese voters are asking. Why did you hold these games in the middle of a pandemic as the world's patrick wind reports that decision may haunt prime minister suge as he prepares for a rough election. The prime minister had it all figured out..

"tropical storm grace" Discussed on Democracy Now! Audio
"Haiti by Alberto massacre and Franz cassius. This is democracy now democracy now dot org I Mimi Goodman as we turn to Haiti where heavy rainfall from tropical storm grace drench the same parts of the country Monday hit by Saturday's earthquake where the death toll is now climbed to more than 1 million 407,000 suffering injuries. And it's overwhelmed hospitals. Thousands more have been left homeless. Doctors treated hundreds of injured people and makeshift tents including young children in the elderly. Meanwhile the investigative judge charged with overseeing the multinational probe into last month's assassination of Haitian president jovenel moise stepped down on Friday saying he's concerned for his safety after one of his court clerks was found dead. These are some of the survivors. My wife called me to have a coffee with her when the quake hit. We were talking and I heard a sound. We tried to get out quickly but the stairs were destroyed. Thanks to God we were able to get out. Against the force of nature nobody could save us but God. Back in the limb I get up on by going back. My House is completely destroyed. I have lost everything. I don't even have bed sheets. I have no food. I have nothing. We were in our home when the quake happened. A number of people who were inside could not escape. The elderly were under the rubble. My father's two legs broke and my mother in law has broken the leg. On the day of the quake we went to the hospital with them. But there weren't enough medics to treat them. They are suffering. I don't know what to do. We're joined right now by Jacqueline Charles. She is the Haiti and Caribbean correspondent at the Miami Herald. She's reported on Haiti and the English speaking Caribbean for the Miami Herald for over a decade. She's a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her coverage of the 2010 Haiti earthquake awarded the 2018 Maria Moore's Cabot prize the most prestigious award for coverage of the Americas. She's right now in la Kai Haiti not far from the earthquake's epicenter. Can you describe Jacqueline what you have seen as you've traveled through the earthquake hit area. Or when you travel through this area I mean you see your home that you know may look like they're okay and then when you take a second look you will see that the bottom of the house is completely collapsed or you see where the whole house has collapsed. This is an area that is agricultural. There are a lot of planes. So the houses are not you know right up under each other like we had in sort of princes not teeming. So visually the devastation of course is different from what we saw in that 2010 earthquake. But the impact is just as great because these are individuals who are still in the process of rebuilding from hurricane Matthews just 5 years ago. And now they basically lost their home. People are afraid to sleep in buildings you know so they've been sleeping in their yards. And of course last night we had grace that came in here and how people are sort of losing patience because they don't have tents. They were just using sheets or whatever they could. From not even that they were just exposed to the elements and they had to choose between the aftershock or the ring. What was your response when you first heard 7.2 category on the Richter scale this earthquake? Oh my God. So you know I had just been in Haiti for an entire month following the assassination of president of the moise and I literally had just gotten off of a plane that morning and I heard that I was just it was like oh my God here we go. And of course you know having covered the earthquake I just did a project last year ten years after. You know we knew that there was going to be a big one. The other big one. But we always assumed that it would be in the north of the country. And the fact that this happened in the south it took a lot of people by surprise. So the first thing you are thinking about is where in terms of the death toll in the damage you know what are we going to find given that we know that 7.0 just 11 years ago almost like that for the print? So among the dead are the mayor the former mayor of le Chi Gabriel fortune. Yes Gabriel fortunate a former mayor of Lake Kai. He was also an adviser to the assassinated president of normal yeas. He's also a former senator a very huge figure he was in his hotel and said it was a meeting going on and yeah he guarded the rubble. He was among 7 individuals that were born individuals who were taking to a local hospital just to confirm that they had died. And that was probably the biggest news in terms of the death where we have pre suicide. We've got. Community leaders. I mean the same thing that we saw in 2010 everybody has a story about someone yesterday I visited the business owner of a supermarket and a hotel and two of his employees died. I spoke to a security guard and she still crushed you still smell the sense of death there even though they had retreat the body but understand that one of them it was just it was body part. And it was you know one of the other person who died was her fellow security guard who she had just released at 6 o'clock and this quake happened at 8 30 a.m.. So if you can talk about the hospitals and the needs right now. You know one of the things that we saw before we've seen it today is patients are not sitting around and waiting for international aid or not waiting for their national community to come and rescue them. They are doing it on their own but they're doing it in a situation where they last even bandages. Medical tape anesthesia IV every day people are coming with injuries. Some have tried to just eat it out because they don't have the means or transportation or they think they have to pay. And so the hospital has been overwhelmed but they seriously lack medical supplies because of the situation that the entrance of southern injuries supported burns with the game. People in Florida French who would like to come provide assistance they can't do it for fear of that role. It's not easy getting into this region because of the humanitarian life and there are also a limited number of flights. But there's a huge need in the hospitals here. And again somebody hospitals have been damaged. So they are basically turning their courtyards. Into makeshift hospital warts. One hospital the doctors residents is now an operating room. They found they themselves have done over a hundred operations. But because there's so many fractures bone fractures they lack even the iron that they're needed to repair a lot of these injuries. And before we go I mean this happening in the midst of a political earthquake. I mean you have the assassination of the Haitian president Maurice and you have the judge presiding over the investigation quitting because one of the court clerks was just found.

Two thousand ten weeks of finding people contacting people really online. You know doing email but this time you have.

What do you mean this week. That just came from the white house this week. How about like yesterday nope. No big hurry hasn't addressed the nation yet. the vice president hasn't either. The press secretary is not available. She's on vacation. All we've think about all from our blinken secretary of state and the spokesperson for the pentagon. All we've heard from la.

But that's the we're not gonna show you that online We'll just show you the version of how the thing starts in. This is how desperate they are to get out of there. It's like saigon. it's it's an absolute hell scape over there for what's happening now and i think the news is only gonna get worse. The statement from the president over the weekend was He's defending his decision to end america's longest war and pull our troops out because he said whether i did it today or five years from now wouldn't have made a difference. See that's redick. that's that's completely wrong. Karen play the cut from pompeii pompeo. Who said they were stipulations. In place there was a price to be paid by the taliban. If they didn't let us leave correctly and peaceful transfer to the other afghan troops. We took all those away. So he's he's he's lying again and then you head. Well don't forget you had jen psaki when asked about it was it at thursday's press conference or friday before she went on vacation Was oh it's up to the taliban to decide where their place is going to be in this world. Well okay. they're place right now is they're running a country. You gave them the country and what did you say about the leader. What was two things here. Afghanistan you're gonna have to change your maps and globes students. It's got a new name. Apparently the islamic emirates of afghanistan. America is what it's called now so the taliban a terrorist organization has taken over an entire country. They have their own country now and fox news. Has this report. Apparently whoever this leader is the new leader of this of the taliban now who will facto leader of ghanistan okay. He it whether it's true or not. He's claiming he was released by us to get more. Oh you remember when we released the top taliban leaders they didn't take too long to rise to power and get a country of your own. Did it boil boy. Wonder colossal failure. Is this guy even run things from gitmo makes you wonder doesn't a wonder don't you. And we let them loose so they could return to their own countries and face prosecution. This guy was probably glorified when he walked in afghanistan. So this President of ours will address his nation. Sometime quote this week okay about this. I'll be waiting for what he because he's sitting there trying to figure out how he's going to lie his way out of. Let's be honest. it's it's that bed and and if you try to blame anybody else but this administration even if you don't wanna blame biden you can blame kamla. I don't care you gotta blame this administration stupid. Could you be that. You didn't see this comment it solely on them. There's no there's no one else to blame. this is there. It's sad former general portrays. He said this is biden and trump. All right it's not all bad news now. How about some cash about some cash could win a thousand bucks from us. It all started today.
