WH POOL FEED of President Obama's speech at Siri Fort Auditorium in New Delhi SLUG: 0143 WH INDIA POOL3 R33 73 AR: 16x9 NYRS: WASH-6 01;53;17;08 Michelle Obama walks in 01;53;58;10 Neiha introduces Obama 01;57;19;38 Obama takes podium PRESIDENT OBAMA: Namaste! (Applause.) Thank you so much. Thank you so much, Neha, for what a wonderful introduction. (Applause.) Everybody, please have a seat. 01;57;46;11 Nothing fills me with more hope than when I hear incredible young people like Neha and all the outstanding work that she's doing on behalf of India's youth and for representing this nation's energy and its optimism and its idealism. She makes me very, very proud. And I'm sure -- I think they may be her -- is that somebody related to you? Okay. Because we just had a chance to meet, and she's beaming with pride right now sitting next to you. Give Neha a big round of applause once again. (Applause.) Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, to all the students and young people who are here today, to the people of India watching and listening across this vast nation -- 01;58;41;04 I bring the friendship and the greetings of the American people. On behalf of myself and Michelle, thank you so much for welcoming us back to India. Bahoot dhanyavad. (Applause.) It has been a great honor to be the first American President to join you for Republic Day. With the tricolor waving above us, we celebrated the strength of your constitution. We paid tribute to India's fallen heroes. In yesterday's parade, we saw the pride and the diversity of this nation -- including the Dare Devils on their Royal Enfields, which was very impressive. Secret Service does not let me ride motorcycles. (Laughter.) Especially not on my head. (Laughter.) I realize that the sight of an American President as your chief guest on Republic Day would have once seemed unimaginable. But my visit reflects the possibilities of a new moment. As I've said many times, I believe that the relationship between India and the United States can be one of the defining partnerships of this century. When I spoke to your Parliament on my last visit, I laid out my vision for how our two nations can build that partnership. And today, I want to speak directly to you -- the people of India -- about what I believe we can achieve together, and how we can do it. 02;00;14;26 My commitment to a new chapter between our countries flows from the deep friendship between our people. And Michelle and I have felt it ourselves. I recognized India with the first state visit of my presidency -- where we also danced to some pretty good Bhangra. (Laughter.) For the first time, we brought Diwali to the White House. (Applause.) On our last celebration here, we celebrated the Festival of Lights in Mumbai. We danced with some children. Unfortunately, we were not able to schedule any dancing this visit. Senorita, bade-bade deshon mein. You know what I mean. (Laughter and applause.) Everybody said, by the way, how much better a dance Michelle was than me -- (laughter) -- which hurt my feelings a little bit. (Laughter.) On a more personal level, India represents an intersection of two men who have always inspired me. When Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was protesting racial segregation in the United States, he said that his guiding light was Mahatma Gandhi. When Dr. King came to India, he said that being here -- in "Gandhi's land" -- reaffirmed his conviction that in the struggle for justice and human dignity, the most potent weapon of all is non-violent resistance. And those two great souls are why we can gather here together today, 02;02;10;21 Indians and Americans, equal and free. And there is another link that binds us. More than 100 years ago, America welcomed a son of India -- Swami Vivekananda. (Applause.) And Swami Vivekananda, he helped bring Hinduism and yoga to our country. And he came to my hometown of Chicago. And there, at a great gathering of religious leaders, he spoke of his faith and the divinity in every soul, and the purity of love. And he began his speech with a simple greeting: "Sisters and brothers of America." So today, let me say: Sisters and brothers of India -- (applause) -- my confidence in what our nations can achieve together is rooted in the values we share. For we may have our different histories and speak different 02;03;17;28 languages, but when we look at each other, we see a reflection of ourselves. Having thrown off colonialism, we created constitutions that began with the same three words -- "we the people." As societies that celebrate knowledge and innovation, we transformed ourselves into high-tech hubs of the global economy. Together, we unlock new discoveries -- from the particles of creation to outer space -- two nations to have gone to both the Moon and to Mars. (Applause.) And here in India, this dynamism has resulted in a stunning achievement. You've lifted countless millions from poverty and built one of the world's largest middle classes. And nobody embodies this progress and this sense of possibility more than our young people. Empowered by technology, you are connecting and collaborating like never before -- on Facebook and WhatsApp and Twitter. And 02;04;26;53 chances are, you're talking to someone in America -- your friends, your cousins. The United States has the largest Indian diaspora in the world, including some three million proud Indian-Americans. (Applause.) And they make America stronger, and they tie us together -- bonds of family and friendship that allow us to share in each other's success. For all these reasons, India and the United States are not just natural partners. I believe America can be India's best partner. I believe that. (Applause.) Of course, only Indians can decide India's role in the world. But I'm here because I'm absolutely convinced that both our peoples will have more jobs and opportunity, and our nations will be more secure, and the world will be a safer and a more just place when our two democracies -- the world's largest democracy and the world's oldest democracy -- stand together. I believe that. (Applause.) So here in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi and I have begun this work anew. And here's what I think we can do together. America wants to be your partner as you lift up the lives of the Indian people and provide greater opportunity. So working together, we're giving farmers new techniques and data -- 02;05;58;57 from our satellites to their cell phones -- to increase yields and boost incomes. We're joining you in your effort to empower every Indian with a bank account. And with the breakthroughs we achieved on this visit, we can finally move toward fully implementing our civil nuclear agreement, which will mean more reliable electricity for Indians and cleaner, non-carbon energy that helps fight climate change. (Applause.) And I don't have to describe for you what more electricity means. Students being able to study at night; businesses being able to stay open longer and hire more workers; farmers being able to use mechanized tools that increase their productivity; whole communities seeing more prosperity. In recent years, India has lifted more people out of poverty than any other country. And now we have a historic opportunity with India leading the way to end the injustice of extreme poverty all around the world. (Applause.) 02;07;08;13 America wants to be your partner as you protect the health of your people and the beauty of this land, from the backwaters of Kerala to the banks of Ganges. As we deliver more energy, more electricity, let's do it with clean, renewable energy, like solar and wind. And let's put cleaner vehicles on the road and more filtration systems on farms and villages. Because every child should be able to drink clean water, and every child should be able to breathe clean air. (Applause.) We need our young people healthy for their futures. And we can do it. We have the technology to do it. America wants to be your partner in igniting the next wave of Indian growth. As India pursues more trade and investment, we want to be first in line. We're ready to join you in building new infrastructure -- the roads and the airports, the ports, the bullet trains to propel India into the future. We're ready to help design "smart cities" that serve citizens better, and we want to develop more advanced technologies with India, as we do with our closest allies. We believe we can be even closer partners in ensuring our mutual security. And both our nations have known the anguish of terrorism, and we stand united in the defense of our people. And now we're deepening our defense cooperation against new challenges. The United States welcomes a greater role for India in the Asia Pacific, where the freedom of navigation must be upheld and disputes must be resolved peacefully. And even as we acknowledge the world as it is, we must never stop working for the world as it should be -- a world without nuclear weapons. That should be a goal for all of us. (Applause.) 02;09;03;31 I believe that if we're going to be true global partners, then our two nations must do more around the world together. So to ensure international security and peace, multilateral institutions created in the 20th century have to be updated for the 21st. And that's why I support a reformed United Nations Security Council that includes India as a permanent member. (Applause.) Of course, as I've said before, with power comes responsibility. In this region, India can play a positive role in helping countries forge a better future, from Burma to Sri Lanka, where today there's new hope for democracy. With your experience in elections, you can help other countries with theirs. With your expertise in science and medicine, India can do more around the world to fight disease and develop new vaccines, and help us end the moral outrage of even a single child dying from a preventable disease. Together, we can stand up against human trafficking and work to end the scourge of modern day slavery. (Applause.) And being global partners means confronting the urgent global 02;10;35;51 challenge of climate change. With rising seas, melting Himalayan glaciers, more unpredictable monsoons, cyclones getting stronger -- few countries will be more affected by a warmer planet than India. And the United States recognizes our part in creating this problem, so we're leading the global effort to combat it. And today, I can say that America's carbon pollution is near its lowest level in almost two decades. I know the argument made by some that it's unfair for countries like the United States to ask developing nations and emerging economies like India to reduce your dependence on the same fossil fuels that helped power our growth for more than a century. But here's the truth: Even if countries like the United States curb our emissions, if countries that are growing rapidly like India -- with soaring energy needs -- don't also embrace cleaner fuels, then we don't stand a chance against climate change. So we welcome India's ambitious targets for generating more clean energy. We'll continue to help India 02;11;45;04 deal with the impacts of climate change -- because you shouldn't have to bear that burden alone. As we keep working for a strong global agreement on climate change, it's young people like you who have to speak up, so we can protect this planet for your generation. I'll be gone when the worst effects happen. It's your generation and your children that are going to be impacted. That's why it's urgent that we begin this work right now. Development that lifts up the lives and health of our people. Trade and economic partnerships that reduce poverty and create opportunity. Leadership in the world that defends our security, and advances human dignity, and protects our planet -- that's what I believe India and America can do together. So with the rest of my time, I want to discuss how we can do it. Because in big and diverse societies like ours, progress ultimately depends on something more basic, and that is how we see each other. And we know from experience what makes nations strong. And Neha I think did a great job of describing the essence of what's important here. We are strongest when we see the inherent dignity in every human being. Look at our countries -- the incredible diversity even here in this hall. India is defined by countless languages and dialects, and every color and caste and creed, gender and orientations. And likewise, in America, we're black and white, and Latino and Asian, and Indian-American, and Native American. Your constitution begins with the pledge to uphold "the dignity of the individual." And our Declaration of Independence proclaims that "all men are created equal." 02;13;40;21 In both our countries, generations have worked to live up to these ideals. When he came to India, Martin Luther King, Jr. was introduced to some schoolchildren as a "fellow untouchable." My grandfather was a cook for the British army in Kenya. The distant branches of Michelle's family tree include both slaves and slave owners. When we were born, people who looked like us still couldn't vote in some parts of the country. Even as America has blessed us with extraordinary opportunities, there were moments in my life where I've been treated differently because of the color of my skin. Many countries, including the United States, grapple with questions of identity and inequality, and how we treat each other, people who are different than us, how we deal with diversity of beliefs and of faiths. Right now, in crowded neighborhoods not far from here, a man is driving an auto-rickshaw, or washing somebody else's clothes, or doing the hard work no one else will do. And a woman is cleaning somebody else's house. And a young man is on a bicycle delivering lunch. A little girl is hauling a heavy bucket of water. And I believe their dreams, their hopes, are just as important, just as beautiful, just as worthy as ours. And 02;15;12;50 so even as we live in a world of terrible inequality, we're also proud to live in countries where even the grandson of a cook can become President, or even a Dalit can help write a constitution, and even a tea seller can become Prime Minister. (Applause.) The point is, is that the aim of our work must be not to just have a few do well, but to have everybody have a chance, everybody who is willing to work for it have the ability to dream big and then reach those dreams. Our nations are strongest when we uphold the equality of all our people -- and that includes our women. (Applause.) Now, you may have noticed, I'm married to a very strong and talented woman. (Applause.) Michelle is not afraid to speak her mind, or tell me when I'm wrong -- which happens frequently. (Laughter.) And we have two beautiful daughters, so I'm surrounded by smart, strong women. And in raising our girls, we've tried to instill in them basic values -- a sense of compassion for others, and respect for themselves, and the confidence that they can go as far as their imaginations and abilities will carry them. And as part of Michelle's work as First Lady, she's met with women and girls around the world, including here in India, to let them know that America believes in them, too. In the United States, we're still working to make sure that women and girls have all the opportunities they deserve, and that they're treated equally. And 02;17;08;57 we have some great role models, including here today the former speaker of our House of Representatives -- Nancy Pelosi -- (applause) -- the first woman speaker of the House, and my great partner. (Applause.) And here in India, it's the wives and the mothers who so often hold families and communities together. Indian women have shown that they can succeed in every field -- including government, where many of your leaders are women. And the young women who are here today are part of a new generation that is making your voice heard, and standing up and determined to play your part in India's progress. And here's what we know. We know from experience that nations are more successful when their women are successful. (Applause.) When girls go to school -- this is one of the most direct measures of whether a nation is going to develop effectively is how it treats its women. When a girl goes to school, it doesn't just open up her young mind, it benefits all of us -- because maybe someday she'll start her own business, or invent a new technology, or cure a disease. And when women are able to work, families are healthier, and communities are wealthier, and entire countries are more prosperous. And when young women are educated, then their children are going to be well educated and have more opportunity. So if nations really want to succeed in today's global economy, they can't simply 02;18;40;30 ignore the talents of half their people. And as husbands and fathers and brothers, we have to step up -- because every girl's life matters. Every daughter deserves the same chance as our sons. Every woman should be able to go about her day -- to walk the streets or ride the bus -- and be safe, and be treated with respect and dignity. (Applause.) She deserves that. (Applause.) And one of the favorite things about this trip for me has been to see all these incredible Indian women in the armed forces, including the person who commanded the Guard that greeted me when I arrived. (Applause.) It's remarkable, and it's a sign of great strength and great progress. Our nations are strongest when we see that we are all God's children -- all equal in His eyes and worthy of His love. Across our two great countries we have Hindus and Muslims, Christians and Sikhs, and Jews and Buddhists and Jains and so many faiths. And we remember the wisdom of Gandhiji, who said, "for me, the different religions are beautiful flowers from the same garden, or they are branches of the same majestic tree." (Applause.) Branches of the same majestic tree. Our freedom of religion is written into our founding documents. It's part of America's very first amendment. Your Article 25 says that all people are "equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practice and propagate religion." In both our countries -- in all countries -- upholding this fundamental freedom is the responsibility 02;20;35;55 of government, but it's also the responsibility of every person. In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned -- by people who don't know me -- or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing. Around the world, we've seen intolerance and violence and terror perpetrated by those who profess to be standing up for their faith, but, in fact, are betraying it. No society is immune from the darkest impulses of man. And too often religion has been used to tap into those darker impulses as opposed to the light of God. Three years ago in our state of Wisconsin, back in the United States, a man went to a Sikh temple and, in a terrible act of violence, killed six innocent people -- Americans and Indians. And in that moment of shared grief, our two countries reaffirmed a basic truth, as we must again today -- that every person has the right to practice their faith how they choose, or to practice no faith at all, and to do so free of persecution and fear and discrimination. (Applause.) The peace we seek in the world begins in human hearts. And it finds its glorious expression when we look beyond any differences in religion or tribe, and rejoice in the beauty of every soul. And nowhere is that more important than India. Nowhere is it going to be more necessary for that foundational value to be upheld. India will succeed so long as it is not splintered along the lines of religious faith -- so long as it's not splintered along any lines -- and is unified as one nation. And it's when all Indians, whatever your faith, go to the movies and applaud actors like Shah Rukh Khan. And when you celebrate athletes like Milkha Singh or Mary Kom. And every Indian can take pride in the courage of a humanitarian who liberates boys and girls from forced labor and exploitation -- who is here today -- Kailash Satyarthi. (Applause.) Our most recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace. (Applause.) So that's what unifies us: Do we act with compassion and empathy. Are we measured by our efforts -- by what Dr. King called "the content of our character" rather than the color of our skin or the manner in which we worship our God. In both our countries, in India and in America, our diversity is our strength. And we have to guard against any efforts to divide ourselves along sectarian lines or any other lines. And if we do that well, if America shows itself as an example of its diversity and yet the capacity to live together and work together in common effort, in common purpose; if India, as massive as it is, with so much diversity, so many differences is able to continually affirm its democracy, that is an example for every other country on Earth. That's what makes us world leaders -- not just the size of our economy or the number of weapons we have, but our ability to show the way in how we work together, and how much respect we show each other. And, finally, our nations 02;24;49;45 are strongest when we empower our young people -- because ultimately, you're the one who has to break down these old stereotypes and these old barriers, these old ways of thinking. Prejudices and stereotypes and assumptions -- those are what happens to old minds like mine. I'm getting gray hair now. I was more youthful when I first started this office. And that's why young people are so important in these efforts. Here in India, most people are under 35 years old. And India is on track to become the world's most populous country. So young Indians like you aren't just going to define the future of this nation, you're going to shape the world. Like young people everywhere, you want to get an education, and find a good job, and make your mark. And it's not easy, but in our two countries, it's possible. Remember, Michelle and I don't come from wealthy backgrounds or famous families. Our families didn't have a lot of money. We did have parents and teachers and communities that cared about us. And with the help of scholarships and student loans, we were able to attend some of best schools of the world. Without that education, we wouldn't be here today. So whether it's in America, or here in India, or around the world, we believe young people like you ought to have every chance to pursue your dreams, as well. So as India builds new community colleges, we'll link you with our own, so more young people graduate with the skills and training to succeed. We'll increase collaborations between our colleges and universities, and help create the next India institute of technology. We'll encourage 02;26;45;09 young entrepreneurs who want to start a business. And we'll increase exchanges, because I want more American students coming to India, and more Indian students coming to America. (Applause.) And that way, we can learn from each other and we can go further. Because one other thing we have in common Indians and Americans are some of the hardest working people on Earth. (Applause.) And I've seen that -- Michelle and I have seen that in a family here in India. I just want to tell you a quick story. On our last visit here, we visited Humayun's Tomb. And while we were there, we met some of the laborers who are the backbone of this nation's progress. We met their children and their families as well -- and some wonderful young children with bright smiles, sparks in their eyes. And one of the children we met was a boy named Vishal. And today, Vishal is 16 years old. And he and his family live in South Delhi, in the village of Mor Band. (Applause.) And his mother works hard in their modest home, and his sister is now in university; she wants to become a teacher. His brother is a construction worker earning his daily wage. And his father works as a stone layer, farther away, but sends home what little he makes so Vishal can go to school. And Vishal loves math, and mostly, he studies. And when he's not studying, he likes watching kabaddi. And he dreams of someday joining the Indian armed forces. (Applause.) And we're grateful that Vishal and his family joined us today. We're very proud of him, because he's an example of the talent that's here. And Vishal's dreams are as important as Malia and Sasha's dreams, our daughters. And we want him to have the same opportunities. Sisters and brothers of India, we are not perfect countries. And we've known tragedy and we've known triumph. We're home to glittering skyscrapers, but also terrible poverty; and new wealth, but also rising inequality. We have many challenges in front of us. But the reason I stand here today, and am so optimistic about our future together, is that, despite our imperfections, our two nations possess the keys to progress in the century ahead. We vote in free elections. We work and we build and we innovate. We lift up the least among us. We reach for heights previous generations could not even imagine. We respect human rights and human dignity, 02;29;50;05 and it is recorded in our constitutions. And we keep striving to live up to those ideals put to paper all those years ago. And we do these things because they make our lives better and safer and more prosperous. But we also do them because our moral imaginations extend beyond the limits of our own lives. And we believe that the circumstances of our birth need not dictate the arc of our lives. We believe in the father working far from home sending money back so his family might have a better life. We believe in the mother who goes without so that her children might have something more. We believe in the laborer earning his daily wage, and the student pursuing her degree. And we believe in a young boy who knows that if he just keeps studying, if he's just given the chance, his hopes might be realized, too. We are all "beautiful flowers from the same garden.branches of the same majestic tree." And I'm the first American President to come to your country twice, but I predict I will not be the last. (Applause.) Because, as Americans, we believe in the promise of India. We believe in the people of India. We are proud to be your friend. We are proud to be your partner as you build the country of your dreams. Jai Hind! (Applause.) Thank you. 02;31;13;11

HOST TV: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA REMARKS AT SIRI FORT AUDITORIUM IN NEW DELHI - SWITCHED
HOST TV FEED - SWITCHED, SD - of President Obama's speech at Siri Fort Auditorium in New Delhi SLUG: 2345 WH INDIA POOL3 R33 73 AR: 4x3 NYRS: WASH-6 00:27:00 - Michelle enters 00:27:20 Neha introduces Obama 00:30:44 Obama waves - we see him for the first time, his hand goes up 00:30:56 PRESIDENT OBAMA: Namaste! (Applause.) Thank you so much. Thank you so much, Neha, for what a wonderful introduction. (Applause.) Everybody, please have a seat. Nothing fills me with more hope than when I hear incredible young people like Neha and all the outstanding work that she's doing on behalf of India's youth and for representing this nation's energy and its optimism and its idealism. She makes me very, very proud. And I'm sure -- 00:31:39 I think they may be her -- is that somebody related to you? Okay. Because we just had a chance to meet, and she's beaming with pride right now sitting next to you. Give Neha a big round of applause once again. (Applause.) 00:32:00 Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, to all the students and young people who are here today, to the people of India watching and listening across this vast nation -- 00:32:11 I bring the friendship and the greetings of the American people. On behalf of myself and Michelle, thank you so much for welcoming us back to India. Bahoot dhanyavad. (Applause.) 00:32:34 It has been a great honor to be the first American President to join you for Republic Day. With the tricolor waving above us, we celebrated the strength of your constitution. We paid tribute to India's fallen heroes. In yesterday's parade, we saw the pride and the diversity of this nation -- 00:33:00 including the Dare Devils on their Royal Enfields, which was very impressive. Secret Service does not let me ride motorcycles. (Laughter.) Especially not on my head. (Laughter.) I realize that 00:33:16 the sight of an American President as your chief guest on Republic Day would have once seemed unimaginable. But my visit reflects the possibilities of a new moment. As I've said many times, I believe that the relationship between India and the United States can be one of the defining partnerships of this century. When I spoke to your Parliament on my last visit, I laid out my vision for how our two nations can build that partnership. And today, I want to speak directly to you -- the people of India -- about what I believe we can achieve together, and how we can do it. My commitment to a new chapter between our countries flows from the deep friendship between our people. And Michelle and I have felt it ourselves. I recognized India with the first state visit of my presidency -- where we also danced to some pretty good Bhangra. (Laughter.) For the first time, we brought Diwali to the White House. (Applause.) On our last celebration here, we celebrated the Festival of Lights in Mumbai. We danced with some children. Unfortunately, we were not able to schedule any dancing this visit. 00:34:43 Senorita, bade-bade deshon mein. You know what I mean. (Laughter and applause.) 00:34:51 Everybody said, by the way, how much better a dance Michelle was than me -- (laughter) -- which hurt my feelings a little bit. (Laughter.) On a more personal level, 00:35:05 India represents an intersection of two men who have always inspired me. When Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was protesting racial segregation in the United States, he said that his guiding light was Mahatma Gandhi. When Dr. King came to India, he said that being here -- in "Gandhi's land" -- reaffirmed his conviction that in the struggle for justice and human dignity, the most potent weapon of all is non-violent resistance. And those two great souls are why we can gather here together today, Indians and Americans, equal and free. And there is another link that binds us. More than 100 years ago, America welcomed a son of India -- Swami Vivekananda. (Applause.) And Swami Vivekananda, he helped bring Hinduism and yoga to our country. And he came to my hometown of Chicago. And there, at a great gathering of religious leaders, he spoke of his faith and the divinity in every soul, and the purity of love. And he began his speech with a simple greeting: "Sisters and brothers of America." So today, let me say: Sisters and brothers of India -- (applause) -- my confidence in what our nations can achieve together is rooted in the values we share. For we may have our different histories and speak different languages, but 00:36:55 when we look at each other, we see a reflection of ourselves. Having thrown off colonialism, we created constitutions that began with the same three words -- "we the people." As societies that celebrate knowledge and innovation, we 00:37:13 transformed ourselves into high-tech hubs of the global economy. Together, we unlock new discoveries -- from the particles of creation to outer space -- two nations to have gone to both the Moon and to Mars. (Applause.) And here in India, this dynamism has resulted in a stunning achievement. You've lifted countless millions from poverty and built one of the world's largest middle classes. And nobody embodies this progress and this sense of possibility more than our young people. Empowered by technology, you are connecting and collaborating like never before -- on Facebook and WhatsApp and Twitter. And chances are, you're talking to someone in America -- your friends, your cousins. The United States has the largest Indian diaspora in the world, including some three million proud Indian-Americans. (Applause.) And they make America stronger, and they tie us together -- bonds of family and friendship that allow us to share in each other's success. For all these reasons, India and the United States are not just natural partners. I believe America can be India's best partner. I believe that. (Applause.) Of course, only Indians can decide India's role in the world. But I'm here because I'm absolutely convinced that both our peoples will have more jobs and opportunity, and our nations will be more secure, and the world will be a safer and a more just place when our two democracies -- the world's largest democracy and the world's oldest democracy -- stand together. I believe that. (Applause.) So here in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi and I have begun this work anew. And here's what I think we can do together. 00:39:19 America wants to be your partner as you lift up the lives of the Indian people and provide greater opportunity. So working together, we're giving farmers new techniques and data -- 00:39:31 from our satellites to their cell phones -- to increase yields and boost incomes. We're 00:39:39 joining you in your effort to empower every Indian with a bank account. And with the breakthroughs we achieved on this visit, we can finally move toward fully implementing our 00:39:43 civil nuclear agreement, which will mean more reliable electricity for Indians and cleaner, non-carbon energy that helps fight climate change. (Applause.) And I don't have to describe for you what more electricity means. Students being able to study at night; businesses being able to stay open longer and hire more workers; farmers being able to use mechanized tools that increase their productivity; whole communities seeing more prosperity. In recent years, India has lifted more people out of poverty than any other country. And now we have a historic opportunity with India leading the way to 00:40:32 end the injustice of extreme poverty all around the world. (Applause.) America wants to be your partner as you protect the health of your people and the beauty of this land, from the backwaters of Kerala to the banks of Ganges. As we deliver more energy, more electricity, let's do it with clean, renewable energy, like solar and wind. And let's put cleaner vehicles on the road and more filtration systems on farms and villages. Because every child should be able to drink clean water, and every child should be able to breathe clean air. (Applause.) We need our young people healthy for their futures. And we can do it. We have the technology to do it. America wants to be your partner in igniting the next wave of Indian growth. As India pursues more trade and investment, we want to be first in line. We're ready to join you in building new infrastructure -- the roads and the airports, the ports, the bullet trains to propel India into the future. We're ready to help design "smart cities" that serve citizens better, and we want to develop more advanced technologies with India, as we do with our closest allies. We believe we can be even closer partners in ensuring our mutual security. And both our nations have known the anguish of terrorism, and we stand united in the defense of our people. And now we're deepening our defense cooperation against new challenges. The United States 00:42:15 welcomes a greater role for India in the Asia Pacific, where the freedom of navigation must be upheld and disputes must be resolved peacefully. And even as we acknowledge the world as it is, 00:42:27 we must never stop working for the world as it should be -- a world without nuclear weapons. That should be a goal for all of us. (Applause.) I believe that if we're going to be true global partners, then our two nations must do more around the world together. So to ensure international security and peace, 00:42:51 multilateral institutions created in the 20th century have to be updated for the 21st. And that's why I support a reformed United Nations Security Council that includes India as a permanent member. (Applause.) Of course, as I've said before, with power comes responsibility. In this region, India can play a positive role in helping countries forge a better future, from Burma to Sri Lanka, where today there's new hope for democracy. With your experience in elections, you can help other countries with theirs. With your expertise in science and medicine, India can do more around the world to fight disease and develop new vaccines, and help us end the moral outrage of even a single child dying from a preventable disease. Together, we can stand up against human trafficking and work to end the scourge of modern day slavery. (Applause.) And being global partners means confronting the urgent global challenge of 00:44:10 climate change. With rising seas, melting Himalayan glaciers, more unpredictable monsoons, cyclones getting stronger -- few countries will be more affected by a warmer planet than India. And 00:44:30 the United States recognizes our part in creating this problem, so we're leading the global effort to combat it. And today, I can say that America's carbon pollution is near its lowest level in almost two decades. 00:44:42 I know the argument made by some that it's unfair for countries like the United States to ask developing nations and emerging economies like India to reduce your dependence on the same fossil fuels that helped power our growth for more than a century. But here's the truth: Even if countries like the United States curb our emissions, if countries that are growing rapidly like India -- with soaring energy needs -- don't also embrace cleaner fuels, then we don't stand a chance against climate change. 00:45:17 So we welcome India's ambitious targets for generating more clean energy. We'll continue to help India deal with the impacts of climate change -- because you shouldn't have to bear that burden alone. As we keep working for a strong global agreement on climate change, it's young people like you who have to speak up, so we can protect this planet for your generation. 00:45:33 I'll be gone when the worst effects happen. It's your generation and your children that are going to be impacted. That's why it's urgent that we begin this work right now. Development that lifts up the lives and health of our people. Trade and economic partnerships that reduce poverty and create opportunity. Leadership in the world that defends our security, and advances human dignity, and protects our planet -- that's what I believe India and America can do together. So with the rest of my time, I want to discuss how we can do it. Because in big and diverse societies like ours, progress ultimately depends on something more basic, and that is how we see each other. And we know from experience what makes nations strong. And Neha I think did a great job of describing the essence of what's important here. We are strongest when we see the inherent dignity in every human being. Look at our countries -- the incredible diversity even here in this hall. India is defined by countless languages and dialects, and every color and caste and creed, gender and orientations. And likewise, in America, we're black and white, and Latino and Asian, and Indian-American, and Native American. Your constitution begins with the pledge to uphold "the dignity of the individual." And our Declaration of Independence proclaims that "all men are created equal." In both our countries, generations have worked to live up to these ideals. When he came to India, Martin Luther King, Jr. was 00:47:27 introduced to some schoolchildren as a "fellow untouchable." My grandfather was a cook for the British army in Kenya. The distant branches of Michelle's family tree include both slaves and slave owners. When we were born, people who looked like us still couldn't vote in some parts of the country. Even as America has blessed us with extraordinary opportunities, there were moments in my life where I've been treated differently because of the color of my skin. Many countries, including the United States, grapple with questions of identity and inequality, and how we treat each other, people who are different than us, how we deal with diversity of beliefs and of faiths. Right now, in crowded neighborhoods not far from here, a 00:48:20 man is driving an auto-rickshaw, or washing somebody else's clothes, or doing the hard work no one else will do. And a woman is cleaning somebody else's house. And a young man is on a bicycle delivering lunch. A little girl is hauling a heavy bucket of water. And I believe their dreams, their hopes, are just as important, just as beautiful, just as worthy as ours. And so even as we live in a world of terrible inequality, we're also proud to live in countries where even the grandson of a cook can become President, or even a Dalit can help write a constitution, and even a tea seller can become Prime Minister. (Applause.) 00:49:12 The point is, is that the aim of our work must be not to just have a few do well, but to have everybody have a chance, everybody who is willing to work for it have the ability to dream big and then reach those dreams. Our nations are strongest when we uphold the equality of all our people -- and that includes our women. (Applause.) Now, you may have noticed, I'm married to a very strong and talented woman. (Applause.) Michelle is not afraid to speak her mind, or tell me when I'm wrong -- which happens frequently. (Laughter.) And we have two beautiful daughters, so I'm surrounded by smart, strong women. And in raising our girls, we've tried to instill in them basic values -- a sense of compassion for others, and respect for themselves, and the confidence that they can go as far as their imaginations and abilities will carry them. And 00:50:22 as part of Michelle's work as First Lady, she's met with women and girls around the world, including here in India, to let them know that America believes in them, too. In the United States, we're still working to make sure that women and girls have all the opportunities they deserve, and that they're treated equally. And we have some great role models, including here today the former speaker of our House of Representatives -- 00:50:49 Nancy Pelosi -- (applause) -- the first woman speaker of the House, and my great partner. (Applause.) And here in India, it's the wives and the mothers who so often hold families and communities together. Indian women have shown that they can succeed in every field -- 00:51:08 including government, where many of your leaders are women. And the young women who are here today are part of a new generation that is making your voice heard, and standing up and determined to play your part in India's progress. And here's what we know. We know from experience that nations are more successful when their women are successful. (Applause.) When girls go to school -- this is one of the most direct measures of whether a nation is going to develop effectively is how it treats its women. When a girl goes to school, it doesn't just open up her young mind, it benefits all of us -- because maybe someday she'll start her own business, or invent a new technology, or cure a disease. And when women are able to work, families are healthier, and communities are wealthier, and entire countries are more prosperous. And when young women are educated, then their children are going to be well educated and have more opportunity. So if nations really want to succeed in today's global economy, they can't simply ignore the talents of half their people. And as husbands and fathers and brothers, we have to step up -- because every girl's life matters. Every daughter deserves the same chance as our sons. Every woman should be able to go about her day -- to 00:52:25 walk the streets or ride the bus -- and be safe, and be treated with respect and dignity. (Applause.) She deserves that. (Applause.) And one of the favorite things about this trip for me has been to see all these incredible Indian women in the armed forces, including the person who commanded the Guard that greeted me when I arrived. (Applause.) It's remarkable, and it's a sign of great strength and great progress. Our nations are strongest when we see that we are all God's children -- all equal in His eyes and worthy of His love. Across our two great countries we have Hindus and Muslims, Christians and Sikhs, and Jews and Buddhists and Jains and so many faiths. And we remember the wisdom of Gandhiji, who said, "for me, the different religions are beautiful flowers from the same garden, or they are branches of the same majestic tree." (Applause.) Branches of the same majestic tree. Our freedom of religion is written into our founding documents. It's part of America's very first amendment. Your Article 25 says that all people are "equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practice and propagate religion." In both our countries -- in all countries -- upholding this fundamental freedom is the responsibility of government, but it's also the responsibility of every person. In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have 00:54:23 been times where my faith has been questioned -- by people who don't know me -- or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing. Around the world, we've seen intolerance and violence and terror perpetrated by those who profess to be standing up for their faith, but, in fact, are betraying it. 00:54:48 No society is immune from the darkest impulses of man. And too often religion has been used to tap into those darker impulses as opposed to the light of God. Three years ago in our state of Wisconsin, back in the United States, a man went to a Sikh temple and, in a terrible act of violence, killed six innocent people -- Americans and Indians. And in that moment of shared grief, our two countries reaffirmed a basic truth, as we must again today -- that 00:55:21 every person has the right to practice their faith how they choose, or to practice no faith at all, and to do so free of persecution and fear and discrimination. (Applause.) The peace we seek in the world begins in human hearts. And it finds its glorious expression when we look beyond any differences in religion or tribe, and rejoice in the beauty of every soul. And nowhere is that more important than India. Nowhere is it going to be more necessary for that foundational value to be upheld. India will succeed so long as it is not splintered along the lines of religious faith -- so long as it's not splintered along any lines -- and is unified as one nation. And it's when all Indians, whatever your faith, go to the movies and applaud actors like Shah Rukh Khan. And when you celebrate athletes like Milkha Singh or Mary Kom. And every Indian can take pride in the courage of a humanitarian who liberates boys and girls from forced labor and exploitation -- who is here today -- Kailash Satyarthi. (Applause.) Our most recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace. (Applause.) So that's what unifies us: Do we act with compassion and empathy. Are we measured by our efforts -- by what Dr. King called "the content of our character" rather than the color of our skin or the manner in which we worship our God. In both our countries, in India and in America, our diversity is our strength. And we have to guard against any efforts to divide ourselves along sectarian lines or any other lines. And if we do that well, if America shows itself as an example of its diversity and yet the capacity to live together and work together in common effort, in common purpose; if India, as massive as it is, with so much diversity, so many differences is able to continually affirm its democracy, that is an example for every other country on Earth. That's what makes us world leaders -- not just the size of our economy or the number of weapons we have, but our ability to show the way in how we work together, and how much respect we show each other. And, finally, our nations are strongest when we empower our young people -- because ultimately, you're the one who has to break down these old stereotypes and these old barriers, these old ways of thinking. Prejudices and 00:58:45 stereotypes and assumptions -- those are what happens to old minds like mine. I'm getting gray hair now. I was more youthful when I first started this office. And that's why young people are so important in these efforts. 00:59:05 Here in India, most people are under 35 years old. And India is on track to become the world's most populous country. So young Indians like you aren't just going to define the future of this nation, you're going to shape the world. Like young people everywhere, you want to get an education, and find a good job, and make your mark. And it's not easy, but in our two countries, it's possible. Remember, 00:59:33 Michelle and I don't come from wealthy backgrounds or famous families. Our families didn't have a lot of money. We did have parents and teachers and communities that cared about us. And with the help of scholarships and student loans, we were able to attend some of best schools of the world. Without that education, we wouldn't be here today. So whether it's in America, or here in India, or around the world, we believe young people like you ought to have every chance to pursue your dreams, as well. So as India builds new community colleges, we'll link you with our own, so more young people graduate with the skills and training to succeed. We'll increase collaborations between our colleges and universities, and help create the next India institute of technology. We'll encourage young entrepreneurs who want to start a business. And we'll increase exchanges, because I want more American students coming to India, and more Indian students coming to America. (Applause.) And that way, we can learn from each other and we can go further. Because one other thing we have in common Indians and Americans are some of the hardest working people on Earth. (Applause.) And I've seen that -- Michelle and I have seen that in a family here in India. I just want to tell you a quick story. On our last visit here, we visited Humayun's Tomb. And while we were there, we met some of the laborers who are the backbone of this nation's progress. We met their children and their families as well -- and some wonderful young children with bright smiles, sparks in their eyes. And one of the children we met was a boy named Vishal. And today, Vishal is 16 years old. And he and his family live in South Delhi, in the village of Mor Band. (Applause.) And his mother works hard in their modest home, and his sister is now in university; she wants to become a teacher. His brother is a construction worker earning his daily wage. And his father works as a stone layer, farther away, but sends home what little he makes so Vishal can go to school. And Vishal loves math, and mostly, he studies. And when he's not studying, he likes watching kabaddi. And he dreams of someday joining the Indian armed forces. (Applause.) And we're grateful that Vishal and his family joined us today. We're very proud of him, because he's an example of the talent that's here. And Vishal's dreams are as important as Malia and Sasha's dreams, our daughters. And we want him to have the same opportunities. Sisters and brothers of India, we are not perfect countries. And 01:02:34 we've known tragedy and we've known triumph. We're home to glittering skyscrapers, but also terrible poverty; and new wealth, but also rising inequality. We have many challenges in front of us. But the reason I stand here today, and am so optimistic about our future together, is that, despite our imperfections, our two nations possess the keys to progress in the century ahead. We vote in free elections. We work and we build and we innovate. We lift up the least among us. We reach for heights previous generations could not even imagine. We respect human rights and human dignity, and it is recorded in our constitutions. And we keep striving to live up to those ideals put to paper all those years ago. And we do these things because they make our lives better and safer and more prosperous. But we also do them because our moral imaginations extend beyond the limits of our own lives. And we believe that the circumstances of our birth need not dictate the arc of our lives. We believe in the father working far from home sending money back so his family might have a better life. We believe in the mother who goes without so that her children might have something more. We believe in the laborer earning his daily wage, and the student pursuing her degree. And we believe in a young boy who knows that if he just keeps studying, if he's just given the chance, his hopes might be realized, too. We are all "beautiful flowers from the same garden.branches of the same majestic tree." And I'm the first American President to come to your country twice, but 01:04:23 I predict I will not be the last. (Applause.) Because, as Americans, we believe in the promise of India. We believe in the people of India. We are proud to be your friend. We are proud to be your partner as you build the country of your dreams. Jai Hind! (Applause.) Thank you. 01:09:38 rope line handshaking

HILLARY CLINTON NYC NY BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS REMARKS POOL / HD
WASH 7 HILLARY CLINTON NYC BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS REMARKS POOL C16 021616 16:04:33 HRC: Oh I think we can go home now. Thanks so much Charlie, thanks for your friendship, thanks for your leadership, the congress will miss you when you leave its ranks but I have a feeling that you're going to be spending a lot of time right here in Harlem. You know Charlie didn't tell you the whole story, he was actually the person who called to encourage me to run for the senate and he basically said that I had no choice but it took me a long time before I realized he was right and he's been a great friend and partner since then. I want to tell you how special it is for me to be back here in Harlem to make this set of comments. 16:05:30 I loved representing New York for 8 years and Harlem looms large in the American imagination as the birthplace of so much art and culture. Such vibrant public life. There's really no place like it in the world. I appreciate being joined by the governor and Sandra by the mayor and Sherlaine by the former attorney general, Eric Holder. Representative Yvette Clarke and Representative Lydia Velazquez, our council speaker Melissa (?). Public advocate Letitia James. I want to thank Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad and to all of the New York State Black Puerto Rican Hispanic and asian caucus members and members of the NYC council, the black Latino and Asian caucus. I thank you all so much for being here. 16:06:34 I want to pick up on what I just said about Harlem because Harlem and many other communities across America remind us that any view of Black America that focuses exclusively on crime, poverty or other challenges is missing so much. Missing the strength and the pride and the achievement that is evident on every street here. That narrative is missing the remarkable rise of the african american middle class, the rise of african americans to leadership in all walks of life. In Business, law, politics, science the arts sports and all the professions. It's missing the vibrancy of the black church, the passionate advocacy of the next generation of changemakers. 16:07:26 And the service of leaders at every level, who never tire of making others lives better. Earlier today I spent some time with the heads of 9 of America's historic civil rights groups hosted by Mark Moreal of the National Urban league. Reverend Al sharpton tended. And we had a great conversation because they are working to drive a 21sat century agenda for jobs and freedom. I'm grateful for their guidance and wisdom. 16:08:03 And I'm also grateful to be speaking in this building that honors two men who represent just some of the diversity of the African American community. Arturo Sean Berg who was from the Caribbean and Langston Hughes whose ashes are housed here. Who reminded all of us that when life ain't no crystal stair you've got to keep climbing. That's a good lesson for everyone. But even as we acknowledge and even celebrate successes it's important to remember there are still very real barriers holding back African Americans from fully participating in our economy and our society. That's what I'm here to talk about today. 16:09:00 HRC: Last week on the debate stage in Milwaukee I said I want to tear down all the barriers that hold back Americans across racial lines because our country can only live up to it's potential when every single american has the chance to live up to theirs. So I want to talk with you about how we break down the barriers that disproportionately affect African Americans and build ladders of opportunity in their place. 16:09:30 Last week, I went to Flint, Michigan. By now, we all know what is happening there. Families, children, babies. Drinking poisoned water for nearly 2 years. Because their governor wanted to save a little money. It's a horrifying story. But what makes it even worse, is that it's not a coincidence that this was allowed to happen in a largely black, largely poor community. 16:10:05 Just ask yourself - would this have ever occurred in a wealthy, white suburb of Detroit? Absolutely not. And as we've learned more about this crisis, we've seen other barriers holding back the people of Flint coming into clearer focus. 16:10:28 Years of underinvestment have left behind a hollowed out community without enough jobs or opportunities for the people living there. Not enough families have access to the quality education that their children deserve. 16:10:45 And they have too little political power, which left them vulnerable to a state government that ignored and dismissed their concerns. Just imagine, every one of you a parent, a grandparent, an aunt, an uncle - going to the authorities holding a bottle of brown, smelly water. Telling those in authority - there's something wrong with this water. My baby has a rash. I feel funny when I drink it, or take a bath. 16:11:24 And being told, there's nothing wrong with the water, just go away. Flint is not alone, there are many Flints across our country - places where people of color and the poor have been left out and left behind, Now in the contest for the Democratic nomination we've spent a lot of time debating about the big banks and the excesses of Wall Street and these are important issues and I'm absolutely committed to ensuring that no bank is too big to fail and no executive too powerful to jail. But Flint reminds us my friends there's a lot more going on in our country that we should be concerned about. 16:12:27 The truth is we aren't a single issue country. We face a complex set of economic, social and political challenges. They are intersectional, they're reinforcing and we've got to take them all on. So it's enough for your economic plan to be break up the banks. You also need a serious plan to create jobs especially in places where unemployment remains stubbornly high. You need a plan to address the generations of underinvestment and neglect. Now even if we succeed in raising taxes on every millionaire and billionaire in America and believe me, I do intend to succeed at that, we still need to face the painful reality that African Americans are nearly three times as likely as whites to be denied a mortgage. 16:13:28 Something's wrong when the median wealth for black families is just a tiny fraction of the median wealth for white families. And when gun violence is by far the leading cause of death for young African American men, outstripping the next nine causes of death combined, there is something deeply wrong. Something's wrong when African American men are far more likely to stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes and sentenced to longer prison terms than white men convicted of the same offenses. 16:14:17 And when black kids get arrested for petty crimes but white CEOs get away with fleecing our entire country, there is something wrong. 16:14:30 Just imagine with me for a moment, imagine. If white kids were 500 percent more likely to die from asthma than black kids, 500 percent - imagine if a white baby in SOuth Carolina were twice as likely to die before her first birthday than an African American baby. Imagine the outcry, imagine the resources that would flood in. 16:15:02 Now these inequities are wrong. But they're also immoral. And it will be the mission of my presidency to bring them to an end! (applause) We have to begin by facing up to the reality of systemic racism. Because these are not only problems of economic inequality, these are problems of racial inequality. And we've got to say that loudly and clearly. Now I don't by any means intend to imply that we're not still making progress, we do have a lot to celebrate as Congressman Rangel said. And the people in this room know that you have helped to make it happen. 16:16:20 And there is no better example of that progression than our president. And for all the partisan resistance President OBama has faced everyday, remember and celebrate he brought our economy back from the brink of another great depression. On his watch 14 million jobs have been created, health care has been brought to 18 million people, the auto industry was saved and so much else. Now he would be the first to say as we've heard him say that despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America's long struggle with race is far from finished. For many White Americans it's tempting to believe that bigotry is largely behind us. That would leave us with a lot less work wouldn't it? 16:17:29-16:17:56 But more than half a century after Rosa Parks sat and Dr. King marched and John Lewis bled, race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind. Now anyone asking for your vote has a responsibility to grapple with this reality. 16:18:03 To see things as they actually are, not just as we want them to be. I'll be the first to admit that I don't have all the answers. I've made my own mistakes I've walked my own journey but I believe with all my heart we can and must do better. We've made progress before which gives me hope we can do it again. In the 1990s economic programs like the new market tax credit, the earned income tax credit and empowerment zones like the one right here in Harlem made a real difference in people's lives. They helped to create the highest increase in black incomes and the lowest black unemployment in history. WE achieved record small business lending to minority owned businesses and record bank lending in minority communities. Right here in Harlem the unemployment rate dropped by ? and we saw a drop in child poverty and an increase in employment and income for single mothers too. 16:19:15 We also learned about what doesn't work. Some of what we tried didn't resolve problems, some ended up creating new ones and that caused disappointment frustration even anger. So as we face today's challenges we have to bring all those lessons to bare. Here's the bottom line as I see it. When we make direct strategic investments in communities that have been left behind and when we guarantee justice and dignity to every American then we really can make progress, lasting progress, progress that will catapult us into the future. We can reduce poverty, we can build ladders of opportunity.So I'm proposing a comprehensive new commitment to equity and opportunity for African American communities. That means a real plan to create jobs. 16:20:16 If I'm elected President we will direct hundreds of [billions? millions?] of dollars in new investments to places like Harlem and rural SC, including 20 [billion? million?] dollars aimed specifically at creating jobs for young people. The unemployment rate among young AFrican Americans is twice as high as for young white people. Now we need to get young people working, developing their skills, unlocking the full extent of the contributions they can make to themselves their families and our country. We need to make sure we're not only creating good jobs but connecting black communities to where the good jobs are. So we've got to be strategic about our investments and transit and infrastructure. And we need a real plan including expanding access to capital to support black entrepreneurs especially black women who represent the fastest growing segment of women owned businesses in AMerica. 16:21:40 And while we're at it let's finally ensure equal pay for equal work for women, that would benefit women of color most of all and would lift up and awful lot of families. ANd let's go even further. Let's follow Governor Cuomo's lead and raise the minimum wage to help people get out of poverty. 16:22:08 Now we need to support African American homeownership. Which has always been one of the surest ways for black families to build wealth. That's why I have a plan that would help African American families save for a down payment. We need to make sure that every family also has access to quality preschool. And I applaud Mayor De Blasio for what he's achieved here in NY with his pre k program. And please help us reverse the dangerous slide toward resegregation in our schools. Our schools are now more segregated than they were in 1968. That is appalling and we've got to fix it. 16:23;06 We also have to make sure that everyone who wants to go to college can afford to and everyone with student debt can have that debt refinanced and take thousands of dollars off the burden they are carrying. Let's give tax credits to businesses that actually invest in training and in apprenticeship programs to help young people who don't go for a two or four year degree. And my plan gives special support to historically black colleges and universities. The HBCUs have produced some of the finest leaders in our country. ANd it's not just who they graduated in the past, it's the work they're still doing today often against great odds. 16:24:06 And then finally and so importantly, we need reform in our criminal justice system. Not half measures but a full commitment with full follow through. Now this is something that we can talk about for hours. In fact, I gave my first speech of this campaign in April, not far from here, and it was about reforming criminal justice. 16:24:40 Because the inequities that that persist in our justice system undermine our shared vision of what American can and should be. Our legal system is still all to often stacked against those who have the least power, who are the most vulnerable. 16:24:56 And we've seen the toll it takes on families torn apart by excessive incarceration and children growing up in homes shattered by prison and poverty. We've got to get back to that fundamental principle that everyone in every community benefits when there is respect for the law and when everyone is respected by the law. 16:25:24 That is the formula for building trust and cooperation and we need to not only acknowledge but fix the prices of mass incarceration. Let's finally once and for all eliminate the remaining disparity in sentencing between crack and powdered cocaine. let's rebuild the bonds of trust between law enforcements and communities by creating more opportunities for people to actually interact with one another, to build relationships. Let's end the epidemic of african americans being killed by police and dying in custody. 16:26:11 Now I think you know because I sure believe there are many police officers out there everyday inspiring trust and confidence. Putting themselves on the line to save lives. So let's learn from those that are doing it right. And apply those lessons across the country. Let's make sure the justice department has the resources to hold departments like Ferguson's accountable when they do it wrong. Again and again, something terrible happens and no one is held accountable. The deeply troubling pattern and we've got to break it. We've also got to do a much better job of helping people who have paid their debt to society, find jobs and support when they get out. 16:27:07 Up to 60% of prisoners who re enter society face long term unemployment. That's a recipe for hopelessness and repeat offending. My jobs plan would make significant investment in re-entry programs for the formerly incarcerated. You know, in my faith we believe in second chances. In America we believe in second chances. Let's give those chances to people who need our help the most. let's give them a fair shot which is also why I will ban the box in the federal government. And I want to thank attorney general Holder who has been really in the forefront of making so many of these changes happen. 16:28:31 And I also want to thank another great New Yorker, Attorney General Loretta Lynch who is continuing the work for equity and justice and let's roll up our sleeves and get to work to dismantle the school to prison pipeline. It's diverting too many african americans kids into the criminal justice system. Instead of giving them the education they deserve. We've seen a significant increase in police involvement in school discipline. Especially in schools with majority black students. We're seeing an over reliance on suspensions and expulsions. I'm sure many of us remember that horrifying video of the girl in South Carolina being thrown out of her desk and dragged across her classroom by a school police officer. 16:29:36 A classroom should be a safe place for our children. We should even have to say that I think. So today I am announcing my plan to end the school to prison pipeline. It includes major investments in school districts that reform their discipline practices. We want districts to know if they do the right thing we'll have their backs and we will dramatically expand support for guidance counselors, school psychologist and social workers. So instead of just labelling kids problem students they can actually help kids with their problems and keep them in school. 16:30:31 And for schools that refuse to reform and states that refuse to take this issue seriously, I want the department of education's office of civil rights to intervene because this, this is not just an education issue this is a civil rights issue and we cannot ignore it any longer. 16:31:09 The bottom line is this, we need to be sending out kids to college. We need a cradle to college pipeline, not sending them into court and into prison. There's much for to do, you go to my website HillaryCLinton.com and read our full agenda. You know sometimes people make fun of me because I actually tell you what I want to do as President. I actually give you plans about what I want to do. 16:31:40 I kind of think it's my duty to help inform voters so that you can make a good decision. But I want to mention one more critical area, protecting that most fundamental of rights the right to vote. Across our country, Republican governors and legislatures are erecting one barrier after another that make it harder for Black people to vote. It's a blast from the Jim Crow past and we need to call it for what it is. ON SCALIA AND JUSTICE NOMINATION 16:32:13 HRC: And in the past few days the stakes got even higher. Justice Scalia's passing means the court hangs in the balance. Now the Republicans say they'll reject anyone President Obama nominates no matter how qualified. Some are even saying he doesn't have the right to nominate anyone. As if somehow he's not the real President. You know that's in keeping what we heard all along isn't it. Many Republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. They demonize President Obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid Fringe. 16:33:00 This kind of hatred and bigotry has no place in our politics or our country. The President has the right to nominate under the constitution. And the senate has the obligation to process that nomination and I hope the senate will start paying more attention to statesmanship than partisanship. And I hope that they will understand that we can have our differences, but let's not go right after the fundamental rules of how we govern ourselves. That's a bridge way too far my friends. Now I will appoint supreme court justices who will see the constitution as a blueprint for progress not as an excuse to try to roll back decisions going all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt. (applause) which is apparently what some of them would prefer to do. 16:34:14 Now I suppose some people will hear what I'm proposing and think well she's saying this because she's in an election. But many of you in this audience know me and you know these issues have always been part of my north star. In my first semester at law school a woman named Marian Wright Edelman came to speak on campus at Yale. She was the first African American woman admitted to the Mississippi bar, a lawyer for the NAACP in Jackson, a friend of Dr. King before he was murdered, altogether a remarkable person. She talked about starting a head start program in Mississippi and using her legal education on behalf of poor children who were invisible to the rest of the country, something clicked in my brain that day. Until I heard Marian speak, it wasn't clear to me how best to channel my faith and commitment to social justice to try to make a real difference in the world. 16:35:23 But she put me on the path to service. I went to work for her at the Children's Defense Fund, she sent me to her home state of South Carolina to take on the problem of black teengaers who were being incarcerated along with adults. And when I look back, everything else I've done, whether it was going undercover in alabama to expose segregated academies and try to strip them of their tax exemptions, or running the legal clinic at the University of Arkansas [cough], to represent inmates-- COUGH! COUGH! COUGH! APPLAUSE. 16:36:03 DRINK WATER - COUGH "TOO MUCH TO SAY!" CHANTS HILLARY! HILLARY! HILLARY! 16:36:26 TAKES LOZENGE DRAMATICALLY 16:36:51 (WEAK VOICE) That's been part of my mission, (STILL COUGHING) representing poor people through the legal services corporation was about making people's lives better and it taught me that even if you're young, you don't have a powerful job, if you work at it and you stick with it you can make a difference. (CANNOT SPEAK. COUGH COUGH APPLAUSE DRINK) 163811 COUGH COUGH HILLARY! HILLARY! DRINK! THANK YOU YOU'RE A GREAT AMEN CHORUS, THANK YOU. 16:38:26 To quote Dr. King the time is already ripe to do right no matter who you are, and when I had the great privilege of representing New York, I worked with members of our congressional delegation, we fought to bring investments and jobs to neighborhoods that needed them, to improve health care, to get cleaner air and water for low income communities. One of the highlights was partnering with the organization 100 Black Men to create the eagle academy which has been so successful, it's grown to 6 schools now in NY taking young African American and Latino men. 16:39:36 There was always something to be done and I had so many partners here in NY. We championed reforms of probation and drug diversion programs we promoted specialized drug courts and juvenile programs coming full circle with the work I had done for Marian. So when I decided to run for president I knew these issues had to be at the heart of my campaign. That's where they've always been, that's where they will always be. And I want to add something else, we Democrats have a special obligation if we're serious about our commitment to the poor, for those who need some help including African Americans, if we continue to ask black people to vote for us we cannot minimize the realities of the lives they lead or take their concerns for granted. 16:40:37 You can't just show up in election time and say the right things and think that's enough. We can't start building relationships a few weeks before a vote, we have to demonstrate a sustained commitment to building opportunity, creating prosperity and righting wrongs. Not just every two or four years, not just when the cameras are on and people are watching, but every single day. So here's what I ask of you. Hold me accountable. Hold every candidate accountable. 16:41:34 What we say matters but what we do matters more. And you deserve leaders who will do whatever it takes to tear down all the barriers holding you back, and replace them with those ladders of opportunity that every American deserves to have. I'm also asking all Americans to join in that effort. As Cornell Brooks the new head of the NAACP said in our meeting this morning, none of this is a they problem it's a we problem and all of us have to admit that. And you know what, it's not an urban problem, it's an American problem. Ending systemic racism requires contributions from all of us, especially those of us who haven't experienced it ourselves. White americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face everyday. 16:42:37 We need to recognize our privilege and practice humility rather than assume that our experiences are everyone's experiences. All of us need to bring our skills to bare and especially young people coming up today who have a passion for social justice and are helping to create new ways to solve intractable problems. And we all need to try as best as we can to walk in one another's shoes to imagine what it would be like to sit our son or daughter down and have the talk, or if people followed us around stores or locked their car doors when we asked past. That kind of empathy is critical. It's what makes it possible for people from every background every race every religion to come together in this great city and to come together as one nation. 16:43:33 It's what makes a country like American endure. I started my remarks my talking about Flint, I'm going to keep talking about Flint until the families there get the help they need for as long as it takes. But there's another side to the story of this tragedy. It's a story of hundreds of union plumbers from across the country traveling to Flint to install water filters for free. It's students at universities all over the Midwest raising funds for water deliveries and student athletes showing up in Flint to distribute supplies. It's the United auto workers and General Motors donating millions, it's money pouring into organizations where people are donating if you wish to try to help the kids and the people of Flint and I'm grateful for everyone who has responded to our request sent out to our campaign.And it's the story of that kindergartener in Wilton NH who lost his first tooth just a few days ago. The tooth fairy left him $5. 16:44:51 I GOT A DIME, I don't know about you. And he said to his mother, I want to give it so those little kids can have water. His mom, sat right down and wrote me a letter about it. To me that's the best of America and it keeps me going.That sense we are all in this together. We all have vital contributions to make and that when we come together all of us with a sense of shared purpose and shared humanity we can solve any problem we face and we can heal any divide. We can build a future that is far far better than our past. That is our hope for our country, that is our goal for this election and I promise to keep fighting right alongside all of you, every day to make the United State's a place where all men and women are treated as equals, just as we are, just as we deserve to be. That is my hope for America. Thank you all so very much. [coughs]. [end of speech]
HILLARY CLINTON NEW YORK CITY NY BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS CUTS ABC UNI /HD
TVU 1 HILLARY CLINTON BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS CUTS ABC UNI C16 021616 TIME CODES DON'T MATCH 16:04:33 HRC: Oh I think we can go home now. Thanks so much Charlie, thanks for your friendship, thanks for your leadership, the congress will miss you when you leave its ranks but I have a feeling that you're going to be spending a lot of time right here in Harlem. You know Charlie didn't tell you the whole story, he was actually the person who called to encourage me to run for the senate and he basically said that I had no choice but it took me a long time before I realized he was right and he's been a great friend and partner since then. I want to tell you how special it is for me to be back here in Harlem to make this set of comments. 16:05:30 I loved representing New York for 8 years and Harlem looms large in the American imagination as the birthplace of so much art and culture. Such vibrant public life. There's really no place like it in the world. I appreciate being joined by the governor and Sandra by the mayor and Sherlaine by the former attorney general, Eric Holder. Representative Yvette Clarke and Representative Lydia Velazquez, our council speaker Melissa (?). Public advocate Letitia James. I want to thank Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad and to all of the New York State Black Puerto Rican Hispanic and asian caucus members and members of the NYC council, the black Latino and Asian caucus. I thank you all so much for being here. 16:06:34 I want to pick up on what I just said about Harlem because Harlem and many other communities across America remind us that any view of Black America that focuses exclusively on crime, poverty or other challenges is missing so much. Missing the strength and the pride and the achievement that is evident on every street here. That narrative is missing the remarkable rise of the african american middle class, the rise of african americans to leadership in all walks of life. In Business, law, politics, science the arts sports and all the professions. It's missing the vibrancy of the black church, the passionate advocacy of the next generation of changemakers. 16:07:26 And the service of leaders at every level, who never tire of making others lives better. Earlier today I spent some time with the heads of 9 of America's historic civil rights groups hosted by Mark Moreal of the National Urban league. Reverend Al sharpton tended. And we had a great conversation because they are working to drive a 21sat century agenda for jobs and freedom. I'm grateful for their guidance and wisdom. 16:08:03 And I'm also grateful to be speaking in this building that honors two men who represent just some of the diversity of the African American community. Arturo Sean Berg who was from the Caribbean and Langston Hughes whose ashes are housed here. Who reminded all of us that when life ain't no crystal stair you've got to keep climbing. That's a good lesson for everyone. But even as we acknowledge and even celebrate successes it's important to remember there are still very real barriers holding back African Americans from fully participating in our economy and our society. That's what I'm here to talk about today. 16:09:00 HRC: Last week on the debate stage in Milwaukee I said I want to tear down all the barriers that hold back Americans across racial lines because our country can only live up to it's potential when every single american has the chance to live up to theirs. So I want to talk with you about how we break down the barriers that disproportionately affect African Americans and build ladders of opportunity in their place. 16:09:30 Last week, I went to Flint, Michigan. By now, we all know what is happening there. Families, children, babies. Drinking poisoned water for nearly 2 years. Because their governor wanted to save a little money. It's a horrifying story. But what makes it even worse, is that it's not a coincidence that this was allowed to happen in a largely black, largely poor community. 16:10:05 Just ask yourself - would this have ever occurred in a wealthy, white suburb of Detroit? Absolutely not. And as we've learned more about this crisis, we've seen other barriers holding back the people of Flint coming into clearer focus. 16:10:28 Years of underinvestment have left behind a hollowed out community without enough jobs or opportunities for the people living there. Not enough families have access to the quality education that their children deserve. 16:10:45 And they have too little political power, which left them vulnerable to a state government that ignored and dismissed their concerns. Just imagine, every one of you a parent, a grandparent, an aunt, an uncle - going to the authorities holding a bottle of brown, smelly water. Telling those in authority - there's something wrong with this water. My baby has a rash. I feel funny when I drink it, or take a bath. 16:11:24 And being told, there's nothing wrong with the water, just go away. Flint is not alone, there are many Flints across our country - places where people of color and the poor have been left out and left behind, Now in the contest for the Democratic nomination we've spent a lot of time debating about the big banks and the excesses of Wall Street and these are important issues and I'm absolutely committed to ensuring that no bank is too big to fail and no executive too powerful to jail. But Flint reminds us my friends there's a lot more going on in our country that we should be concerned about. 16:12:27 The truth is we aren't a single issue country. We face a complex set of economic, social and political challenges. They are intersectional, they're reinforcing and we've got to take them all on. So it's enough for your economic plan to be break up the banks. You also need a serious plan to create jobs especially in places where unemployment remains stubbornly high. You need a plan to address the generations of underinvestment and neglect. Now even if we succeed in raising taxes on every millionaire and billionaire in America and believe me, I do intend to succeed at that, we still need to face the painful reality that African Americans are nearly three times as likely as whites to be denied a mortgage. 16:13:28 Something's wrong when the median wealth for black families is just a tiny fraction of the median wealth for white families. And when gun violence is by far the leading cause of death for young African American men, outstripping the next nine causes of death combined, there is something deeply wrong. Something's wrong when African American men are far more likely to stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes and sentenced to longer prison terms than white men convicted of the same offenses. 16:14:17 And when black kids get arrested for petty crimes but white CEOs get away with fleecing our entire country, there is something wrong. 16:14:30 Just imagine with me for a moment, imagine. If white kids were 500 percent more likely to die from asthma than black kids, 500 percent - imagine if a white baby in SOuth Carolina were twice as likely to die before her first birthday than an African American baby. Imagine the outcry, imagine the resources that would flood in. 16:15:02 Now these inequities are wrong. But they're also immoral. And it will be the mission of my presidency to bring them to an end! (applause) We have to begin by facing up to the reality of systemic racism. Because these are not only problems of economic inequality, these are problems of racial inequality. And we've got to say that loudly and clearly. Now I don't by any means intend to imply that we're not still making progress, we do have a lot to celebrate as Congressman Rangel said. And the people in this room know that you have helped to make it happen. 16:16:20 And there is no better example of that progression than our president. And for all the partisan resistance President OBama has faced everyday, remember and celebrate he brought our economy back from the brink of another great depression. On his watch 14 million jobs have been created, health care has been brought to 18 million people, the auto industry was saved and so much else. Now he would be the first to say as we've heard him say that despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America's long struggle with race is far from finished. For many White Americans it's tempting to believe that bigotry is largely behind us. That would leave us with a lot less work wouldn't it? 16:17:29-16:17:56 But more than half a century after Rosa Parks sat and Dr. King marched and John Lewis bled, race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind. Now anyone asking for your vote has a responsibility to grapple with this reality. 16:18:03 To see things as they actually are, not just as we want them to be. I'll be the first to admit that I don't have all the answers. I've made my own mistakes I've walked my own journey but I believe with all my heart we can and must do better. We've made progress before which gives me hope we can do it again. In the 1990s economic programs like the new market tax credit, the earned income tax credit and empowerment zones like the one right here in Harlem made a real difference in people's lives. They helped to create the highest increase in black incomes and the lowest black unemployment in history. WE achieved record small business lending to minority owned businesses and record bank lending in minority communities. Right here in Harlem the unemployment rate dropped by ? and we saw a drop in child poverty and an increase in employment and income for single mothers too. 16:19:15 We also learned about what doesn't work. Some of what we tried didn't resolve problems, some ended up creating new ones and that caused disappointment frustration even anger. So as we face today's challenges we have to bring all those lessons to bare. Here's the bottom line as I see it. When we make direct strategic investments in communities that have been left behind and when we guarantee justice and dignity to every American then we really can make progress, lasting progress, progress that will catapult us into the future. We can reduce poverty, we can build ladders of opportunity.So I'm proposing a comprehensive new commitment to equity and opportunity for African American communities. That means a real plan to create jobs. 16:20:16 If I'm elected President we will direct hundreds of [billions? millions?] of dollars in new investments to places like Harlem and rural SC, including 20 [billion? million?] dollars aimed specifically at creating jobs for young people. The unemployment rate among young AFrican Americans is twice as high as for young white people. Now we need to get young people working, developing their skills, unlocking the full extent of the contributions they can make to themselves their families and our country. We need to make sure we're not only creating good jobs but connecting black communities to where the good jobs are. So we've got to be strategic about our investments and transit and infrastructure. And we need a real plan including expanding access to capital to support black entrepreneurs especially black women who represent the fastest growing segment of women owned businesses in AMerica. 16:21:40 And while we're at it let's finally ensure equal pay for equal work for women, that would benefit women of color most of all and would lift up and awful lot of families. ANd let's go even further. Let's follow Governor Cuomo's lead and raise the minimum wage to help people get out of poverty. 16:22:08 Now we need to support African American homeownership. Which has always been one of the surest ways for black families to build wealth. That's why I have a plan that would help African American families save for a down payment. We need to make sure that every family also has access to quality preschool. And I applaud Mayor De Blasio for what he's achieved here in NY with his pre k program. And please help us reverse the dangerous slide toward resegregation in our schools. Our schools are now more segregated than they were in 1968. That is appalling and we've got to fix it. 16:23;06 We also have to make sure that everyone who wants to go to college can afford to and everyone with student debt can have that debt refinanced and take thousands of dollars off the burden they are carrying. Let's give tax credits to businesses that actually invest in training and in apprenticeship programs to help young people who don't go for a two or four year degree. And my plan gives special support to historically black colleges and universities. The HBCUs have produced some of the finest leaders in our country. ANd it's not just who they graduated in the past, it's the work they're still doing today often against great odds. 16:24:06 And then finally and so importantly, we need reform in our criminal justice system. Not half measures but a full commitment with full follow through. Now this is something that we can talk about for hours. In fact, I gave my first speech of this campaign in April, not far from here, and it was about reforming criminal justice. 16:24:40 Because the inequities that that persist in our justice system undermine our shared vision of what American can and should be. Our legal system is still all to often stacked against those who have the least power, who are the most vulnerable. 16:24:56 And we've seen the toll it takes on families torn apart by excessive incarceration and children growing up in homes shattered by prison and poverty. We've got to get back to that fundamental principle that everyone in every community benefits when there is respect for the law and when everyone is respected by the law. 16:25:24 That is the formula for building trust and cooperation and we need to not only acknowledge but fix the prices of mass incarceration. Let's finally once and for all eliminate the remaining disparity in sentencing between crack and powdered cocaine. let's rebuild the bonds of trust between law enforcements and communities by creating more opportunities for people to actually interact with one another, to build relationships. Let's end the epidemic of african americans being killed by police and dying in custody. 16:26:11 Now I think you know because I sure believe there are many police officers out there everyday inspiring trust and confidence. Putting themselves on the line to save lives. So let's learn from those that are doing it right. And apply those lessons across the country. Let's make sure the justice department has the resources to hold departments like Ferguson's accountable when they do it wrong. Again and again, something terrible happens and no one is held accountable. The deeply troubling pattern and we've got to break it. We've also got to do a much better job of helping people who have paid their debt to society, find jobs and support when they get out. 16:27:07 Up to 60% of prisoners who re enter society face long term unemployment. That's a recipe for hopelessness and repeat offending. My jobs plan would make significant investment in re-entry programs for the formerly incarcerated. You know, in my faith we believe in second chances. In America we believe in second chances. Let's give those chances to people who need our help the most. let's give them a fair shot which is also why I will ban the box in the federal government. And I want to thank attorney general Holder who has been really in the forefront of making so many of these changes happen. 16:28:31 And I also want to thank another great New Yorker, Attorney General Loretta Lynch who is continuing the work for equity and justice and let's roll up our sleeves and get to work to dismantle the school to prison pipeline. It's diverting too many african americans kids into the criminal justice system. Instead of giving them the education they deserve. We've seen a significant increase in police involvement in school discipline. Especially in schools with majority black students. We're seeing an over reliance on suspensions and expulsions. I'm sure many of us remember that horrifying video of the girl in South Carolina being thrown out of her desk and dragged across her classroom by a school police officer. 16:29:36 A classroom should be a safe place for our children. We should even have to say that I think. So today I am announcing my plan to end the school to prison pipeline. It includes major investments in school districts that reform their discipline practices. We want districts to know if they do the right thing we'll have their backs and we will dramatically expand support for guidance counselors, school psychologist and social workers. So instead of just labelling kids problem students they can actually help kids with their problems and keep them in school. 16:30:31 And for schools that refuse to reform and states that refuse to take this issue seriously, I want the department of education's office of civil rights to intervene because this, this is not just an education issue this is a civil rights issue and we cannot ignore it any longer. 16:31:09 The bottom line is this, we need to be sending out kids to college. We need a cradle to college pipeline, not sending them into court and into prison. There's much for to do, you go to my website HillaryCLinton.com and read our full agenda. You know sometimes people make fun of me because I actually tell you what I want to do as President. I actually give you plans about what I want to do. 16:31:40 I kind of think it's my duty to help inform voters so that you can make a good decision. But I want to mention one more critical area, protecting that most fundamental of rights the right to vote. Across our country, Republican governors and legislatures are erecting one barrier after another that make it harder for Black people to vote. It's a blast from the Jim Crow past and we need to call it for what it is. ON SCALIA AND JUSTICE NOMINATION 16:32:13 HRC: And in the past few days the stakes got even higher. Justice Scalia's passing means the court hangs in the balance. Now the Republicans say they'll reject anyone President Obama nominates no matter how qualified. Some are even saying he doesn't have the right to nominate anyone. As if somehow he's not the real President. You know that's in keeping what we heard all along isn't it. Many Republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. They demonize President Obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid Fringe. 16:33:00 This kind of hatred and bigotry has no place in our politics or our country. The President has the right to nominate under the constitution. And the senate has the obligation to process that nomination and I hope the senate will start paying more attention to statesmanship than partisanship. And I hope that they will understand that we can have our differences, but let's not go right after the fundamental rules of how we govern ourselves. That's a bridge way too far my friends. Now I will appoint supreme court justices who will see the constitution as a blueprint for progress not as an excuse to try to roll back decisions going all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt. (applause) which is apparently what some of them would prefer to do. 16:34:14 Now I suppose some people will hear what I'm proposing and think well she's saying this because she's in an election. But many of you in this audience know me and you know these issues have always been part of my north star. In my first semester at law school a woman named Marian Wright Edelman came to speak on campus at Yale. She was the first African American woman admitted to the Mississippi bar, a lawyer for the NAACP in Jackson, a friend of Dr. King before he was murdered, altogether a remarkable person. She talked about starting a head start program in Mississippi and using her legal education on behalf of poor children who were invisible to the rest of the country, something clicked in my brain that day. Until I heard Marian speak, it wasn't clear to me how best to channel my faith and commitment to social justice to try to make a real difference in the world. 16:35:23 But she put me on the path to service. I went to work for her at the Children's Defense Fund, she sent me to her home state of South Carolina to take on the problem of black teengaers who were being incarcerated along with adults. And when I look back, everything else I've done, whether it was going undercover in alabama to expose segregated academies and try to strip them of their tax exemptions, or running the legal clinic at the University of Arkansas [cough], to represent inmates-- COUGH! COUGH! COUGH! APPLAUSE. 16:36:03 DRINK WATER - COUGH "TOO MUCH TO SAY!" CHANTS HILLARY! HILLARY! HILLARY! 16:36:26 TAKES LOZENGE DRAMATICALLY 16:36:51 (WEAK VOICE) That's been part of my mission, (STILL COUGHING) representing poor people through the legal services corporation was about making people's lives better and it taught me that even if you're young, you don't have a powerful job, if you work at it and you stick with it you can make a difference. (CANNOT SPEAK. COUGH COUGH APPLAUSE DRINK) 163811 COUGH COUGH HILLARY! HILLARY! DRINK! THANK YOU YOU'RE A GREAT AMEN CHORUS, THANK YOU. 16:38:26 To quote Dr. King the time is already ripe to do right no matter who you are, and when I had the great privilege of representing New York, I worked with members of our congressional delegation, we fought to bring investments and jobs to neighborhoods that needed them, to improve health care, to get cleaner air and water for low income communities. One of the highlights was partnering with the organization 100 Black Men to create the eagle academy which has been so successful, it's grown to 6 schools now in NY taking young African American and Latino men. 16:39:36 There was always something to be done and I had so many partners here in NY. We championed reforms of probation and drug diversion programs we promoted specialized drug courts and juvenile programs coming full circle with the work I had done for Marian. So when I decided to run for president I knew these issues had to be at the heart of my campaign. That's where they've always been, that's where they will always be. And I want to add something else, we Democrats have a special obligation if we're serious about our commitment to the poor, for those who need some help including African Americans, if we continue to ask black people to vote for us we cannot minimize the realities of the lives they lead or take their concerns for granted. 16:40:37 You can't just show up in election time and say the right things and think that's enough. We can't start building relationships a few weeks before a vote, we have to demonstrate a sustained commitment to building opportunity, creating prosperity and righting wrongs. Not just every two or four years, not just when the cameras are on and people are watching, but every single day. So here's what I ask of you. Hold me accountable. Hold every candidate accountable. 16:41:34 What we say matters but what we do matters more. And you deserve leaders who will do whatever it takes to tear down all the barriers holding you back, and replace them with those ladders of opportunity that every American deserves to have. I'm also asking all Americans to join in that effort. As Cornell Brooks the new head of the NAACP said in our meeting this morning, none of this is a they problem it's a we problem and all of us have to admit that. And you know what, it's not an urban problem, it's an American problem. Ending systemic racism requires contributions from all of us, especially those of us who haven't experienced it ourselves. White americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face everyday. 16:42:37 We need to recognize our privilege and practice humility rather than assume that our experiences are everyone's experiences. All of us need to bring our skills to bare and especially young people coming up today who have a passion for social justice and are helping to create new ways to solve intractable problems. And we all need to try as best as we can to walk in one another's shoes to imagine what it would be like to sit our son or daughter down and have the talk, or if people followed us around stores or locked their car doors when we asked past. That kind of empathy is critical. It's what makes it possible for people from every background every race every religion to come together in this great city and to come together as one nation. 16:43:33 It's what makes a country like American endure. I started my remarks my talking about Flint, I'm going to keep talking about Flint until the families there get the help they need for as long as it takes. But there's another side to the story of this tragedy. It's a story of hundreds of union plumbers from across the country traveling to Flint to install water filters for free. It's students at universities all over the Midwest raising funds for water deliveries and student athletes showing up in Flint to distribute supplies. It's the United auto workers and General Motors donating millions, it's money pouring into organizations where people are donating if you wish to try to help the kids and the people of Flint and I'm grateful for everyone who has responded to our request sent out to our campaign.And it's the story of that kindergartener in Wilton NH who lost his first tooth just a few days ago. The tooth fairy left him $5. 16:44:51 I GOT A DIME, I don't know about you. And he said to his mother, I want to give it so those little kids can have water. His mom, sat right down and wrote me a letter about it. To me that's the best of America and it keeps me going.That sense we are all in this together. We all have vital contributions to make and that when we come together all of us with a sense of shared purpose and shared humanity we can solve any problem we face and we can heal any divide. We can build a future that is far far better than our past. That is our hope for our country, that is our goal for this election and I promise to keep fighting right alongside all of you, every day to make the United State's a place where all men and women are treated as equals, just as we are, just as we deserve to be. That is my hope for America. Thank you all so very much. [coughs]. [end of speech]

Yeltsin in crowd during Putin speech STORYLINE: Former President Boris Yeltsin, who was instrumental in the final collapse of the Soviet Union, pushed Russia toward pluralism and a market economy, and launched the first war in Chechnya, has died, a Kremlin official said Monday. He was 76. The Interfax news agency cited an unidentified medical source as saying he had died of heart failure in the Kremlin Clinic Hospital. Although Yeltsin was initially admired abroad for his defiance of the Communist system, many Russians will remember him mostly for presiding over the steep decline of their nation. It was a period where the oligarchs came to the fore - an elite rich making billions out of state owned resources while the vast majority remained poor. Perhaps his greatest moment which powered him to the helm of Russian politics was when he rallied crowds from a tank at the parliament building to fight the 1991 hardline coup. Yeltsin and his supporters barricaded themselves inside the White House in defiance of the provisional committee, forcing them to admit defeat after only three days. As the tanks left Moscow, hundreds of thousands of Russians gathered outside the White House to celebrate their victory and acclaim their hero Boris Yeltsin. Yeltsin's act would spell the end of Communism and plunge the country into its worst crisis since the Revolution as Russia fought for its survival. The fight was to be led by a man who himself became as much as a mystery as the country he ruled. 'Labourers' Street' in the tiny Urals hamlet of Butka was the location of his humble origins. Educated as an engineer, Yeltsin rose fast in the construction industry in the regional capital Yekaterinburg, then called Sverdlovsk. By 1976 he had won the leadership of the Sverdlovsk communist party organisation. By no means yet the maverick who would help topple 70 years of Soviet rule, it was under Yeltsin's stewardship that the building in which the last Tsar was murdered was wiped from the street - for fear of becoming a shrine for anti-communists. Yet Yeltsin's will to power and brute political instinct was already writ large. His no-nonsense approach won the attention of Mikhail Gorbachev who promoted him to the key post of Moscow party chief. Unheard of for a communist mandarin, Yeltsin rode the bus to work, scorning the privileges of power in a personal crusade against corruption. It was a revelation - and the nation loved it. As Gorbachev's ratings dipped ever lower, Yeltsin became the first genuinely popular communist for generations. When he tore up his party card and won the first free election for the Russian presidency in June 1991, Gorbachev and over 70 years of communist rule were on borrowed time. The failed coup two months later was the nail in the coffin for both. When Gorbachev returned to Moscow after the coup, the balance of power had shifted perceptibly into the hands of Boris Yeltsin. Yeltsin's victory in August 1991 may have removed the symbols of over 70 years of dictatorship but Yeltsin found it harder himself to tolerate opposition to his own rule. Bullets and bloodshed on the streets of Moscow in 1993 called into question the very nature of Yeltsin's leadership. Russian had not fired on Russian with such ferocity since the communist revolution. Economic reforms had strained the nation to breaking point. Tension erupted into street fighting that brought Russia to the brink of civil war. The Russian White House, a symbol of democracy in 1991, now became the target of Yeltsin's wrath as the parliament refused to bow to his demands. Dozens were killed in the bitter struggle to put down the uprising. Yeltsin claimed force had saved his reforms. But it was a turning point in public perception of Russia's great hope - and one that Yeltsin was never fully to shake off. Sacking radical reformers to appease his enemies, Yeltsin forged ahead with his programme for Russia. He kept the door open to market reforms, filling Moscow's shops with goods Russians had barely dreamt of. Shelves denuded of all but wilted root vegetables were now a thing of the past. Anything was available and the trick was to get rich. Foreign investors took a deep breath and launched into the 'The Wild East'. And a growing class of nouveaux riches would buy anything they offered. Left on the sidelines were countless ordinary Russians, impoverished overnight by rampant inflation and creeping unemployment. Yeltsin was playing a losing game as the deadlines of his promised economic miracle passed one after another. Instead, a tired nation could look only to corruption and crime as growth industries. But with Yeltsin commanding almost untrammelled power, many began to wonder if he knew what he wanted to do with it. Some asked whether he was fit to wield it at all. Always prone to unpredictable behaviour, rumours circulated that Yeltsin was not so much in high spirits as increasingly under their influence. A series of gaffes on high-profile trips abroad were matched with extraordinary antics at home. It was officially laughed off as proof of his generally enviable good health. But with Yeltsin's health deteriorating fast, the country was left rudderless for months at a time. When on the advice of his cabinet Yeltsin ordered the Russian army to crush a rebellion in Chechnya, the last of his old democratic allies at home deserted him. The invasion was a televised fiasco. The army was publicly humiliated and what was conceived as a quick fix to Yeltsin's sagging political fortunes turned into a drawn out and bloody war of attrition. The Russian army pulverised Grozny, the city it was detailed to 'save' from the Chechen rebels. The human cost, estimated in the tens of thousands, is still not accurately known. Russia's new parliament, never intended to be a real threat to the president, dissolved into a body racked by corruption allegations and internal brawling. Serious legislation was left to the Kremlin. Rumours that Yeltsin's health was in terminal decline seemed to be scotched by his hugely energetic re-election campaign. Russia had seen nothing like it for decades. And the performance paid off - Yeltsin converted single figure ratings at the start of the campaign to a convincing victory over his communist opponent. Many began to speak of the final nail in the coffin for Soviet-style Communism. If they were to return to power, Russia's communists would have to soften their policies and join the European political mainstream. Yeltsin meanwhile had earned himself a second term. Yet the sheer effort for the ailing 65-year-old almost cost him his life. Following weeks of speculation, Yeltsin announced that he faced heart surgery. Top specialists from around the world were flown in to advise Russian surgeons charged with carrying out a multiple bypass operation. The operation was a success and Yeltsin was back at the helm within two months. A case of pneumonia after the New Year saw fresh calls for Yeltsin to stand down from all sides of the political spectrum. Russia's economic policy and reforms lay stagnant while Yeltsin recovered. But a rejuvenated Yeltsin returned to the Kremlin in fighting mood. He sacked several members of his cabinet and promoted liberal reformers Anatoly Chubais and Boris Nemtsov to senior posts in the Russian government. To prove his good health, Yeltsin embarked on a series of foreign policy initiatives. He signed a friendship pact with neighbouring Ukraine, a much-heralded NATO treaty in Paris and pushed Russia's affairs in the East. But at home the government was still failing to repay its promises to workers fast losing their patience. In one year of severe political turmoil, several different Prime Ministers came and went, including long-time friend and political ally Viktor Chernomyrdin. Yeltsin continued to show a high profile outside Russia but at home his popularity was waning as Russia's workers went unpaid for the best part of last year. The devaluation of Russia's ruble, after repeated assurances from Yeltsin that it would not happen, left him looking ever more inadequate. The sight of Russians fighting to withdraw their money from Russia's banks consigned to the dustbin the last boast of Russia's reformers, that they at least brought currency stability and steady prices. Yeltsin's ability to emerge from a crisis unscathed had deserted him. Yeltsin's office in the Kremlin stood empty for days at a time and the Russian president's public appearances only showed him to be confused and in poor health. Quiet speculation began about who would replace Yeltsin. In May 1999 , Yeltsin dismissed Primakov as prime minister and named the former Interior Minister Sergei Stepashin for the post. Stepashin did not live up to the Kremlin's expectations and was replaced by former Security Council Secretary Vladimir Putin. Putin even received the open endorsement of the Kremlin. Yeltsin cut off speculation whether he would hold or cancel presidential elections scheduled for June of 2000 by announcing his resignation on December 31, 1999. He was succeeded by his choice, Vladimir Putin, who was handed the nuclear suitcase and the keys to the Kremlin. In the following months after his resignation, Yeltsin remained in the spotlight. He travelled abroad, celebrated public holidays and published another book. Towards the end of 2000, Russia's first president, as he is known, hardly appeared in public at all. Surrounded by his family and closest friends, he celebrated his 70th birthday on February 2, in the hospital, ill with the flu. One of his last public appearances just under a year ago saw him in Red Square as his successor, well-entrenched in power, gave a speech. Yeltsin is survived by his wife, Naina, two daughters and several grandchildren. Funeral plans were not immediately announced. Yeltsin's tenure will be known for tumultuous changes brought on by communism's disintegration and the fact he was unable, or unwilling, to prevent the looting of state industry as it moved into private hands during his nine years as Russia's first freely elected president.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a text message to The Associated Press from a phone number commonly used by the insurgent group. The target was an international military convoy, the extremist group said. US soldiers had blocked off access to the site right outside Camp Phoenix, an American base inside Kabul. The attacker was driving a minibus laden with explosives and wounded at least six Afghan civilians, said Jamil Jumbish, the head of Afghanistan's criminal investigation unit. Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada, the head of Kabul's criminal investigation department, said "preliminary reports" suggested six to eight Afghan civilians had been wounded. The attack came hours after gunmen killed four policemen in southern Afghanistan. The car bombing was the latest attack to hit Kabul, coming just over a week after a team of Taliban gunmen and suicide bombers staged an assault that paralyzed the city and left 12 people dead. The violence has underscored fears that militants would try to stage attacks ahead of a key international conference on Afghanistan to be held on Thursday in London.

Gul and Karzai leaving STORYLINE Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Tuesday those Taliban who are not part of al-Qaida or "other terrorist groups" must be reintegrated into Afghan society. An Afghan government plan to offer jobs, vocational training and other economic incentives to tens of thousands of Taliban foot soldiers willing to switch sides will be discussed at a January 28 international conference on Afghanistan in London. Officials have said the program would allow individuals to lay down their arms while top Taliban leaders are urged to negotiate peace. The Taliban leadership has rejected talks as long as foreign forces remain in Afghanistan. "The conference in London will be a major opportunity for Afghanistan to explain to the rest of the world our plans for reconciliation and reintegration," Karzai told reporters. The Afghan President spoke during a joint news conference with his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul, who hosted the "Summit of Friendship and Cooperation in the Heart of Asia" in Istanbul earlier in the day. The meeting showed "that the region backs the positive developments in Afghanistan, the latest elections, Karzai's election as president, his formation of a cabinet and all these developments," Gul said. Gul added he believed the problems of Afghanistan "cannot be solved only by the armed forces. The hearts and minds of the Afghan people have to be won over, the welfare of Afghan people should be increased." Karzai is due to travel to Berlin on Tuesday evening to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel ahead of the London conference on Thursday. Karzai has said the US and Europe back his plan to reconcile militants who are not aligned with al-Qaida or other militant groups. British officials said that international funding for Karzai's program is expected to be agreed to at the London meeting, but did not offer specifics on the likely amount to be pledged.

However, in Germany we have plenty of volunteer trainers who we appreciate and are doing a great job." 8. Wide of presenter and audience STORYLINE: The US special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan on Monday praised Germany's contribution to NATO's Afghan mission, saying the US is "intensely grateful" for Germany's support. Richard Holbrooke also said he was hopeful the upcoming London conference would establish international support for reintegrating back into mainstream Afghan society the majority of Afghans currently fighting with the Taliban. Holbrooke was speaking during a television programme recorded in the United States and Europe with the German Minister of Defence Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. The programme, hosted by America Abroad Media and WDR TV Germany, will be broadcast in both countries and on Afghan TV. Holbrooke appeared on the programme a day before German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that Germany plans to increase its troop contingent in Afghanistan by up to 850 and focus more strongly on training local security forces. Berlin plans to send 500 extra troops to Afghanistan. It also expects to adjust the parliamentary mandate under which they serve to allow for another 350 soldiers to be deployed as a "flexible reserve," to help with events such as elections if necessary, Merkel said. Questioned about whether "fewer than 1,000 additional troops" from Germany would be enough, Holbrooke said he was "delighted" with the German contributions and would welcome any additional support. Holbrooke also said the US would increase its support in Afghanistan's agriculture sector, a key component of the Afghan economy. Holbrooke said the majority of the Taliban's fighters don't support Taliban leader Mullah Omar or al-Qaida and its leader Osama Bin Laden. President Hamid Karzai said on Tuesday that Thursday's London conference offers a major opportunity for his government to present its plans for reconciliation in an effort to drain the insurgency of support. Speaking to WDR Television in Cologne on Monday, zu Guttenberg said Germany would work to train Afghan police forces. He said Germany had "plenty of volunteer trainers" to do the job.

Ambulance leaving, policemen at the entrance of hospital directing cars STORYLINE A suicide car bomber killed at least 18 and injured dozens more on Tuesday in a strike against a police crime lab in central Baghdad, a day after several hotels were also hit by suicide attacks, officials said. This week's bombings - all against prominent and heavily fortified targets - dealt yet another blow to the image of an Iraqi government struggling to answer for security lapses that have allowed bombers to carry out a number of massive attacks in the heart of the capital since August. The latest blast came as family members of the Saddam Hussein stalwart known as "Chemical Ali" arrived in Baghdad to collect his body for an afternoon burial. Ali Hassan al-Majid was hanged on Monday after a series of convictions for atrocities that included mass killings and crimes against humanity. The timing of this week's deadly bombings have prompted speculation among some Iraqis that the attacks were retaliation for the death sentence. But the top American commander in Iraq, General Raymond Odierno, dismissed those claims, saying there was "absolutely no connection" between the attacks and the execution. While there has been no formal claim of responsibility for the attacks at the hotels and against the Ministry of Interior offices, Odierno said it appeared to be the work of al-Qaida. Officials say the majority of those killed were likely police officers who worked in the forensic investigation office at Tahariyat Square in the central neighbourhood of Karradah. At least 82 people were reported injured. Police and hospital officials said the bomber in Tuesday's attack tried to drive a pickup truck through a checkpoint and blast walls protecting the forensic evidence office. Among those confirmed killed were 12 police officers and six civilians who were visiting the office. Officials said more than half the wounded were police. Rescue teams in blue jumpsuits combed through the debris of the partially damaged three-story building shortly after the blast as a crane removed some of the 10-foot, 7-ton concert blast walls toppled by the explosion. The office targeted in the attack mainly deals with data collected during criminal investigations, including fingerprints and other pieces of evidence. The office is located next to the Interior Ministry's major crimes office, which deals with terrorism cases. Government offices have been frequent targets of major attacks in the capital since blasts struck the foreign and finance ministries in August, raising questions about the ability of Iraqi security forces to keep the country safe. While the criminal evidence offices have not been targeted by a major suicide bombing before, attackers have struck nearby. The attack destroyed rooms on the ground floor of the building and damaged parts of the second floor. The office is surrounded by low-rise buildings that contain shops, takeaway restaurants and offices that were also damaged. Tuesday's attack came one day after a series of bombings targeting hotels favoured by foreigners. The toll from those blasts continued to rise, with 41 people confirmed killed and up to 106 reported injured, police and health officials said on Tuesday. The bombings on Monday targeted the Sheraton Ishtar Hotel, Babylon Hotel and Hamra Hotel, which are popular with Western journalists and foreign security contractors. All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to release details.

Various of US marines patrolling streets STORYLINE: Challenges and obstacles continued to dog the aid effort for survivors of Haiti's earthquake on Tuesday, as United Nations soldiers distributed food at night to try to avoid riots. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, UN soldiers from Argentina delivered aid to residents of the Cite Soleil area in the capital Port-au-Prince - a poverty stricken part of the city where more than 200-thousand people are jammed into an eight square mile area. A spokesman for the contingent said they have to deliver the aid after nightfall to avoid the kind of riotous scenes seen on Monday in front of the destroyed National palace, where people waiting for food aid jostled with UN forces. The crowd's desperation boiled over and Uruguayan UN peacekeepers had to fire pepper spray into the air to try to disperse people. The overwhelmed soldiers finally retreated and young men rushed forward to grab the bags of pinto beans and rice, pushing aside others including one pregnant woman who collapsed and was trampled. As more aid starts to filter through to Port-au-Prince's residents, food market vendors are taking advantage of the windfall and are reselling bags of rice to customers. Donated rice and other goods are being sold in markets around the city, while thousands of survivors are still without aid. Food aid has reached 500-thousand people at least once, the UN reported on Sunday, but as many as 2 (m) million people are in need. "We realise this is a much bigger task than we had thought before," said Josette Sheeran, the UN World Food Programme chief, who visited Port-au-Prince at the weekend. She said the supply chain of food, water and medicines was being severely hampered by the country's damaged infrastructure. Haiti's magnitude-7 earthquake killed an estimated 200-thousand people and left the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere virtually without a functioning government. It wrecked the presidential palace, parliament, government ministries and the UN headquarters, among thousands of other structures. Haiti's government wants many of the homeless to leave the capital city of 2 (m) million people, to look for better shelter with relatives or others elsewhere.

This isn't Islam." 16. Pan shot of two women wearing veils walking through the streets STORYLINE: A parliamentary panel that wants Muslim women to stop veiling their faces recommended on Tuesday that France ban such clothing in public facilities, including hospitals and public transport, and refuse residence cards and citizenship to anyone with visible signs of a "radical religious practice." The nearly 200-page report contains a panoply of measures intended to dissuade women from wearing all-enveloping veils in France. However, there is no call to outlaw such garments worn by a tiny minority of Muslims in private areas and in the street. The 32-member, multiparty panel heeded warnings that a full ban risked being deemed unconstitutional and could even cause trouble in a country where Islam is the second-largest religion. The language in the report was carefully chosen in an effort to avoid offending France's estimated five (m) million Muslims - the largest such population in western Europe - and accusations of discrimination. Muslim leaders have already complained that the debate over the full veil coupled with an ongoing debate on French national identity has left some Muslims feeling their religion is becoming a government target. The topic of the all-encompassing veil is charged with passion and politicking, and the panel failed to reach a consensus on whether any action was warranted, and what kind, despite universal agreement that veils covering the face are not wanted in France. The report culminates a six-month inquiry into the wearing of all-encompassing veils that began after President Nicolas Sarkozy said in June that they are "not welcome" on French territory. Such veils are thought to be worn by only several thousand Muslim women who, most often, pin a "niqab" across their faces, hiding all but the eyes. Worn with a long, dark robe, such clothing is customarily associated with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. The veil is widely viewed in France as a gateway to extremism, an insult to gender equality and an offence to France's secular foundation. "For me, the mission (of this panel) is about something deep and serious. The all-enveloping veil in France is contrary to our republican principles. Your report shows this well," said National Assembly President, Bernard Accoyer, during a hearing on Tuesday. A 2004 French law bans Muslim headscarves from primary and secondary school classrooms. As hearings proceeded, "it appeared to members of the panel that the wearing of the full-body veil threw out a challenge to our Republic. It is unacceptable," the report said. Equality between men and women and the principle of secularism are frequently cited in the report as French values compromised by the face-covering veil, viewed as radical dress. Among its 18 proposals, the panel recommends modifying the code governing asylum and foreigners residing in France to ensure refusal of a resident card to those who "manifest a radical practice of their religion." A more drastic recommendation would refuse citizenship for "failure to assimilate" to those who "manifest a radical practice of their religion." The code currently mentions "propagation of extremist theses" as reason for refusing citizenship. The measure likely to curry the least favour with critics and, if passed, directly affect all Muslim women who cover their faces is the proposed ban on veils in all public facilities. As envisaged by the panel, such a ban would be legal and "apply to all public services and therefore to public transport." Hospitals and schools would be included. Such a ban would require that people show their faces when entering the facility and "keep the face uncovered throughout their presence," the report says. Failure to do so would result "in a refusal to deliver the service demanded." That means, for instance, that a woman seeking state funds commonly accorded to mothers would walk away empty-handed. It was not immediately clear whether the government, or parliament, would take up any or all of the report's recommendations. A leading lawmaker in the governing party, Jean-Francois Cope, has already presented an initiative seeking a ban on such veils in the street, dividing the panel. "My position is to forbid it in all open, public spaces because I think this is the best way to make sure that we are all living with the same values, you see," Cope said on Tuesday. Reaction on the street from the Muslim community was mixed on Tuesday. One Muslim woman said that wearing a full-face veil wasn't Islam. Another Muslim woman said people should be free to do what they chose. Any action on the report would not come before March regional elections. A first, easy step would likely be passage of a resolution, a policy statement which carries no legal weight, denouncing the veil.

Five days of torrential rains in the Cuzco region have destroyed key bridges, 250 houses and hundreds of acres of crops, while blocking highways and the railway to Machu Picchu. A Cuzco province spokesman said a mudslide on the Inca trail killed 20-year-old Argentine tourist Lucila Ramballo and her Peruvian guide early on Tuesday. In total, he said floods and slides have killed 5 people. People struggled to clear a damaged road close to Machu Picchu on Tuesday. Part of the road had collapsed into a river that was swollen with flood water. Footage from Peru's Channel 9 television showed local people and tourists trying to clear rocks and debris from the road. Peru's government declared an emergency in the region on Monday. The Civil Defence Institute said 61 of nearly 2,000 tourists were evacuated Monday by helicopter from Machu Picchu Pueblo, where they are stranded by suspended rail service. Crews have been working to clear rocks and mud blocking the area's only train route. Hotels are full and many travellers have been sleeping on the street, local media said. A Mexican tourist told the Associated Press by telephone that many people have run out of money and are begging for food or water for their children. The rains stopped on Monday night and Perurail said service may resume later on Tuesday, "weather permitting." The rail service said military helicopters have delivered food and water to the village and will return on Tuesday to continue evacuations.

Asset prices in some specific sectors, in some specific regions of China may be frothy but there certainly is no widespread asset price bubble." 11. Cutaway reporters STORYLINE: In its latest global economic outlook, the International Monetary Fund reports the world economy is recovering at a healthy pace but still needs government stimulus efforts to keep it going. The IMF raised its forecast for world economic growth in 2010 to nearly 4 percent, up from an estimate of 3.1 percent last October. "Global prospects have definitely improved since we last met in last October, " said the IMF's chief economist Olivier Blanchard. The IMF expects the US economy to grow by 2.7 percent this year, significantly higher than its previous forecast of 1.5 percent. But with unemployment high in many countries and credit tight, the recovery in the United States and other advanced economies "is still expected to be weak by historical standards," the IMF said in a quarterly update of its World Economic Outlook. Blanchard told reporters that in the US, "growth in 2010 will still be largely driven by inventory investment on the one hand and fiscal policy on the other" and that challenges remain in replacing these sources of financing. He added that similar issues will be faced in the the Euro zone and Japan. The IMF also projected that the 15 nations that use the euro would grow by 1 percent in 2010, up from its 0.3 percent estimate in October. It kept its estimate for Japan the same, at 1.7 percent growth. It forecast China's growth this year at 10 percent, and said key emerging economies in Asia are leading the global recovery. A "key risk" to the recovery "is that a premature and incoherent exit" from the low interest rates set by many central banks and other stimulus programs "may undermine global growth," the IMF said. The IMF's Financial Counsellor, Jose Vinals, told reporters that "the repair of the financial system is by no means complete and financial stability remains fragile." Jorg Decressin, chief of the World Economic Outlook Studies Division, said the IMF's believed there was"no widespread asset price bubble" in China despite some frothiness in certain regions. The IMF provides loans and other assistance to troubled countries and has 186 member nations. It also performs economic analysis and monitoring.

Close up of computer screen showing Chinese website 18. Back shot of man playing online game STORYLINE China said on Tuesday that the Chinese people have "extensive" freedoms of speech and rebuked comments made by US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on internet censorship. In recent days, China warned of damage to ties after Clinton's relatively mild criticisms of China's Internet censorship and calls to investigate cyber attacks against Google. The search engine giant announced on January 12 that it would pull out of China unless the government relaxes its rules on censorship. The ultimatum came after Google said e-mail accounts of human rights activists critical of China had been hacked. Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu defended China's policies regarding the Web, saying the nation's Internet regulations were in line with Chinese law and did not hamper the cyber activities of the world's largest online population. Speaking at the Foreign Ministry briefing in Beijing on Tuesday, spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said the Chinese people had "extensive freedom of speech." "China has freedom of speech. The Constitution of China has explicit provision in this regard. The Chinese people are enjoying extensive freedom of speech and they are the ones who have the most right to say so," he said. The increasingly heated environment is likely to pose challenges to negotiating an arrangement that would suit both Google's and China's interests. The company says it remains optimistic it can persuade China's ruling party to loosen restrictions on free expression on the Internet, so it can keep doing business in the country. However, China's government has given little indication it's willing to budge. On Tuesday, one newspaper headline in the state run newspaper, The China Daily quoted the ministry of industry, information and technology as saying: "China's policy on internet safety is transparent and consistent." Another headline in the Global Times Chinese edition read: "China intensely fights allegations on internet." On Monday Xinhua cited the State Council, China's Cabinet, as criticising what it called interference in the country's domestic affairs. On the streets of Beijing, some internet users also seemed to agree with this view. One worker at a technology company said Clinton's comments were untrue and he called the allegations from the US "unsubstantiated". "I think our country is only imposing strict controls on pornography and other kinds of illegal information on the internet. As for personal freedom, especially the freedom of speech on the internet, I think we have a very relaxed atmosphere," Liu Dalai said. Internet control is considered a critical matter of state security in China. Beijing promotes internet use for commerce, but heavily censors content it deems pornographic, anti-social or politically subversive and blocks many foreign news and social media sites, including Twitter and Facebook, and the popular video-sharing site YouTube. Another person interviewed on Beijing streets said China should be more open to information and trade. "I think China should be more open to the world, not only with the trade but also with the internet. China can get excellent benefit from a highly developed information flow," Zhang Na said. Google said earlier it had uncovered a computer attack that tried to plunder its software coding and the Gmail accounts of human rights activists protesting against Chinese policies. The company traced the attacks on its computers to hackers in China, but hasn't directly tied them to the Chinese government or its agents.

Various of pilgrims shouting religious slogans 11. Pilgrims beating themselves with chains STORYLINE: Thousands of Shia pilgrims have reached the holy shrines of Abas and al-Hussein in the Iraqi city of Karbala, completing a traditional pilgrimage which was banned under Saddam Hussein's Sunni muslim regime. Across Iraq, Shia pilgrims journeyed to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, while Christians packed churches for Easter, giving full voice to religious convictions that had been suppressed by Saddam. They have marched to the holy cities under black banners of mourning for Imam Hussein, the martyred grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Al-Hussein's shrine is in Karbala, while his father, Imam Ali, son-in-law of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, is buried in Najaf. As many as two million Shia from Iraq, Iran and elsewhere are expected to converge on the two holy cities later in the week. The event is one of the biggest events of the Islamic calendar. There are fears that religious rivalries that had been uneasily - and sometimes brutally - kept in check might flare anew and consume the new order. Saddam's government was officially secular but dominated by Sunni Muslims, who often put down Iraq's Shia majority. Shia make up 60 percent of Iraq's 24 (m) million people. The United States (U.S.) troops kept a low profile during the pilgrimage - hoping that festering internal rifts or anti-American feelings didnt erupt amongst the surging masses. ***************************************************************** 11:07:03 BAGHDAD GARNER 2 11:07:09 GARNERSON RUNWAY, JUST GOT OFF PLANE 11:07:18 INTERVIEW: "ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH, POWER, WATER..." 11:07:38 GARNER WALKING WITH TROOPS 11:07:48 GARNER SHAKING HANDS WITH A GROUP OF OTHERS 11:08:07 GARNER LISTENING TO A MAN 11:08:13 CLOSE-UP OF GARNER'S FACE 11:08:26 MEETING WTIH HEALTH OFFICIALS IN IRAQ, GARNER IS SPEAKING 11:08:41 SOT WITH IRAQI WOMAN (IN ARABIC) 11:09:06 GARNER SPEAKING WTIH MILITARY PERSONNEL 11:09:26 GARNER WALKS UP TO SHAKE HANDS 11:09:36 GARNER ON THE STREETS SHAKING LOCAL IRAQIS HANDS 11:09:52 GARNER GETTIGN A TOUR OF A PLANT 11:10:09 GARNER SOT: " I DON'T RULE ANYTHING, I AM THE COALITION FACILITATOR, WITH OUR ASSISTANCE WE CAN BEGIN THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND END UP A DEMOCRACY..."

Street scene STORYLINE: Retired US Lieutenant General Jay Garner arrived on Monday to take up his duties as Iraq's postwar civil administrator in a Baghdad still largely without power or clean water. Garner landed at Baghdad's airport after a short flight from Kuwait, 12 days after US tanks and troops secured the Iraqi capital and brought down Saddam Hussein's regime. He said his top priority was to restore basic services such as water and electricity "as soon as we can." His first visit was to Baghdad's one-thousand-bed Yarmouk hospital, which was overwhelmed with Iraqi casualties in the final days of the war. Its wards, including the coronary and respiratory care units, were then stripped of almost everything by looters. Garner also visited a sewage plant and a power station in southern Baghdad. Garner, who will report to Central Command chief Gen. Tommy Franks, said he intended to complete his work and leave as soon as possible, but declined to give a timeframe. There were mixed reactions among Baghdad's residents to Garner's arrival. Some said they objected to an American being in charge, while others said the most important thing was to reestablish order and security. ************************************************************** 11:11:12 KUWAIT UK TROOPS: TROOPS LEAVING KUWAIT TO GO HOME 11:11:30 VARIOUS SHOTS OF SOLDIERS AROUND EQUIPMENT, INSEPCTING THEIR EQUIPMENT 11:12:01 AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE GOES OUT INTO THE WATER FROM LAND 11:12:24 AMPHIBOUS 11:12:31 SOT FROM UK SOLIDER: WE WOULD LIKE TO BE FULLY LOADED TOMORROW...IT WILL TAKE 6-8 WEEKS" 11:12:59 SOLDIERS ON BOATS IN PORT STORY: ++Kuwait UK Troops - NEW British troops leave region for home LENGTH: 2:25 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL STORY NUMBER: 372185 DATELINE: Kuwait, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Across southern Iraq, British troops are preparing to turn over much of the administrative responsibility to Iraqis.

Various of press conference STORYLINE: Pakistan said on Monday that it was ready to hold peace talks with nuclear rival India "anytime, anyplace and at any level," and said it hoped to work out specific dates for negotiations within days. The offer by Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan was in response to Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statement on Saturday that he is ready for talks to resolve all disputes between the South Asian neighbours, including the issue of Kashmir - the source of two wars between the two sides. Khan told a news conference that Pakistan welcomed the statement by Vajpayee, but said "these statements should now materialize into reality." He said Pakistan hoped immediate steps could be taken towards beginning dialogue and that any foreign mediation would be welcomed. Khan, however, rejected any preconditions for the talks. India has said Pakistan must first stop the infiltration of Islamic militant groups into its portion of Kashmir. Pakistan says no infiltration is taking place, and it only offers moral support to the insU-R-G-E-N-Ts. ********************************************************************************************************* 11:19:01 KYRGYZSTAN LANDSLIDE 11:19:23 DAMMAGE FROM THE MUDSLIDE 11:19:34 PAN OVER THE PATH OF THE MUDSLIDE, TOUR-DOWN BUILDINGS ON THE SIDE OF A HILL 11:19:54 MEN DIGGING THROUGH TREES 11:20:13 MEN CHOPPING UP TREES, TRYING TO MOVE AWAY SOME OF THE DIRT STORY: ++Kyrgyzstan Landslide - NEW Aftermath, rescue operation following landslide that killed 38 LENGTH: 1:49 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372192 DATELINE: Kara-Taryk, Osh Region, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ++QUALITY AS INCOMING++ 1.

Various of patients having temperature taken with ear thermometer STORYLINE: Countries across Asia stepped up their defences against SARS on Monday as China's death toll from the SARS virus rose by seven to 86 and Beijing's new mayor was reportedly dismissed for mishandling the outbreak. The new figures raised the death toll in Beijing to 20 and the number of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome to 448. They were included in a daily report by China's Health Ministry to the World Health Organisation, which also said the country's total number of cases had risen to 1,959. A SARS outbreak at Singapore's largest wholesale vegetable market has prompted the quarantine of all 2,400 workers there and raised fears the virus has moved out of hospitals into the community. Three people working in separate buildings at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre have contracted the severe acute respiratory syndrome and one of them has since died. Authorities were unable to trace all the people the victims came into contact with in the crowded shopping area and have closed the whole market. On Monday, police stood guard as cleaners were sent in to sterilise the 24-hour market. Pasir Panjang is the main auction centre for 70 per cent of imported fruit and vegetables and food shortages resulting from its closure are likely to be felt keenly in shops and restaurants. Another 83 people outside the market have also come under quarantine. Of these, 33 have been traced to a taxi driver who was infected by the virus after ferrying one of the market workers and passed it on to members of his family, three other drivers and 14 passengers. Temperature testing areas for cab drivers has now been set up around Singapore after business halved. Volunteers check for an unnaturally high temperature - a symptom of fever - and then hand them an "all-clear" badge which they display for passengers. Health officials and medical experts at an international conference on SARS in Taipei called on Monday for a high state of alert to contain the spread of the virus. Joseph Sung, a professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said efforts had to be focused on prevention because curing the disease was impossible. In an attempt to reduce the spread of SARS through contact with health care professionals, Taiwanese officials now require all patients on the island to take temperature checks before they see doctors. ************************************************************************************************************* HONG KONG SARS STORY: HKong SARS - REPLAY Latest developments on SARS outbreak LENGTH: 2:23 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: No Hong Kong TYPE: Cantonese/Nat SOURCE: ATV STORY NUMBER: 372143 DATELINE: Hong Kong, 19/21 April 2003/ Recent SHOTLIST: April 19, 2003 1.

Various of children putting on masks at school 12. Various of students wearing masks STORYLINE: Hong Kong's government leader claimed on Monday that efforts to contain the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the territory are paying off and that he is growing more confident about beating the disease. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said this was down to the quarantining of the households of victims and tracking down potential contacts. His upbeat message was repeated by Margaret Chan, Hong Kong's Director of Health. At a news conference Monday, Chan said that "the public health system is adequate for Hong Kong citizens." Hong Kong reported six more SARS deaths on Monday, bringing the toll to 94. 22 new cases were announced bringing the total to 1,402, but 436 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. Babies born to Hong Kong SARS victims have developed respiratory problems. Hong Kong Health Director Margaret Chan described the condition of the infants as "unstable". Tung said 150 suspected SARS cases have been identified through Hong Kong's stepped-up measures to find people exposed to the disease. Those people have been able to receive early treatment - which Hong Kong doctors fighting SARS say is crucial. The two women and four men who died in the past 24 hours all had previous chronic illnesses, officials said. Hong Kong announced April 10 it would quarantine households of recently diagnosed SARS victims - ordering people to stay home for 10 days so that anyone who might have picked up the disease from a family member would not spread it any further. Some critics had accused Hong Kong of being too slow with such measures while it tries to stop the disease that has thrown the territory into its biggest crisis in years. ************************************************************************************************************* 11:27:15 ITALY GLADIATOR: MEN DRESSED UP AS GLADIATORS 11:27:55 GLADIATORS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS ************************************************************************************************************* 11:28:49 BASRA CHOLERA--GOOD STUFF 11:28:57 UNICEF TRUCK DRVING DOWN ROAD 11:29:11 SOLDIER 11:29:18 SOT WITH UNICEF WORKER: CHOLERA IS VERY PREVALENT WHEN THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE POOR...PEOPLE LIVING IN CLOSE CONFINES...DISEASE CAN BE PREVALENT..." 11:29:52 PEOPLE WAIT TO GET 11:29:57 POEPLE FILLING THEIR BUCKETS WITH WATER 11:30:14 SOT FROM UK SOLDIER: "WE HAVE THE THREAT OF CHOLERA IN THE REGION..." 11:30:38 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER THAT IS SPRAYING 11:30:48 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER, TAKING A BATH, HAS SOAP IN HAND ************************************************************************************************************ 11:32:04 BAGHDAD CUSTODY 11:32:21 NIGHT FOOTAGE OUTSIDE JAIL? 11:32:33 ZOOM-INTO WINDOW THAT HAS BARS ON THE OUTSIDE 11:32:47 FOOTAGE OF AL-TIKRITI WEARING A HEADRESS, THROUGH A NARROW WINDOW, HE'S SMILING 11:33:20 ANOTHER IRAQI, DRINKING SOMETHING 11:33:25 BACK OF TIKRITI SITTING ON CHAIR 11:33:58 END OF BULLETIN ************************************************************************************************************ 11:34:39 DUBAI TV

Various of pilgrims shouting religious slogans 11. Pilgrims beating themselves with chains STORYLINE: Thousands of Shia pilgrims have reached the holy shrines of Abas and al-Hussein in the Iraqi city of Karbala, completing a traditional pilgrimage which was banned under Saddam Hussein's Sunni muslim regime. Across Iraq, Shia pilgrims journeyed to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, while Christians packed churches for Easter, giving full voice to religious convictions that had been suppressed by Saddam. They have marched to the holy cities under black banners of mourning for Imam Hussein, the martyred grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Al-Hussein's shrine is in Karbala, while his father, Imam Ali, son-in-law of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, is buried in Najaf. As many as two million Shia from Iraq, Iran and elsewhere are expected to converge on the two holy cities later in the week. The event is one of the biggest events of the Islamic calendar. There are fears that religious rivalries that had been uneasily - and sometimes brutally - kept in check might flare anew and consume the new order. Saddam's government was officially secular but dominated by Sunni Muslims, who often put down Iraq's Shia majority. Shia make up 60 percent of Iraq's 24 (m) million people. The United States (U.S.) troops kept a low profile during the pilgrimage - hoping that festering internal rifts or anti-American feelings didnt erupt amongst the surging masses. ***************************************************************** 11:07:03 BAGHDAD GARNER 2 11:07:09 GARNERSON RUNWAY, JUST GOT OFF PLANE 11:07:18 INTERVIEW: "ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH, POWER, WATER..." 11:07:38 GARNER WALKING WITH TROOPS 11:07:48 GARNER SHAKING HANDS WITH A GROUP OF OTHERS 11:08:07 GARNER LISTENING TO A MAN 11:08:13 CLOSE-UP OF GARNER'S FACE 11:08:26 MEETING WTIH HEALTH OFFICIALS IN IRAQ, GARNER IS SPEAKING 11:08:41 SOT WITH IRAQI WOMAN (IN ARABIC) 11:09:06 GARNER SPEAKING WTIH MILITARY PERSONNEL 11:09:26 GARNER WALKS UP TO SHAKE HANDS 11:09:36 GARNER ON THE STREETS SHAKING LOCAL IRAQIS HANDS 11:09:52 GARNER GETTIGN A TOUR OF A PLANT 11:10:09 GARNER SOT: " I DON'T RULE ANYTHING, I AM THE COALITION FACILITATOR, WITH OUR ASSISTANCE WE CAN BEGIN THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND END UP A DEMOCRACY..."

Life is like a hell every day: no water, no electricity." 23. Street scene STORYLINE: Retired US Lieutenant General Jay Garner arrived on Monday to take up his duties as Iraq's postwar civil administrator in a Baghdad still largely without power or clean water. Garner landed at Baghdad's airport after a short flight from Kuwait, 12 days after US tanks and troops secured the Iraqi capital and brought down Saddam Hussein's regime. He said his top priority was to restore basic services such as water and electricity "as soon as we can." His first visit was to Baghdad's one-thousand-bed Yarmouk hospital, which was overwhelmed with Iraqi casualties in the final days of the war. Its wards, including the coronary and respiratory care units, were then stripped of almost everything by looters. Garner also visited a sewage plant and a power station in southern Baghdad. Garner, who will report to Central Command chief Gen. Tommy Franks, said he intended to complete his work and leave as soon as possible, but declined to give a timeframe. There were mixed reactions among Baghdad's residents to Garner's arrival. Some said they objected to an American being in charge, while others said the most important thing was to reestablish order and security. ************************************************************** 11:11:12 KUWAIT UK TROOPS: TROOPS LEAVING KUWAIT TO GO HOME 11:11:30 VARIOUS SHOTS OF SOLDIERS AROUND EQUIPMENT, INSEPCTING THEIR EQUIPMENT 11:12:01 AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE GOES OUT INTO THE WATER FROM LAND 11:12:24 AMPHIBOUS 11:12:31 SOT FROM UK SOLIDER: WE WOULD LIKE TO BE FULLY LOADED TOMORROW...IT WILL TAKE 6-8 WEEKS" 11:12:59 SOLDIERS ON BOATS IN PORT STORY: ++Kuwait UK Troops - NEW British troops leave region for home LENGTH: 2:25 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL STORY NUMBER: 372185 DATELINE: Kuwait, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Hovercraft and small cargo vessels are being used to ferry thousands of tons of equipment and vehicles to larger ships offshore. The 539th Assault Squad was responsible for the capture of the Al Faw peninsula and its oil facilities in the early days of the war. Across southern Iraq, British troops are preparing to turn over much of the administrative responsibility to Iraqis. But UK soldiers will continue to play a role in aid delivery and infrastructure development. A recently appointed Basra province governor is working with British troops to re-establish a police force and provide basic services to the region.

Various of press conference STORYLINE: Pakistan said on Monday that it was ready to hold peace talks with nuclear rival India "anytime, anyplace and at any level," and said it hoped to work out specific dates for negotiations within days. The offer by Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan was in response to Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statement on Saturday that he is ready for talks to resolve all disputes between the South Asian neighbours, including the issue of Kashmir - the source of two wars between the two sides. Khan told a news conference that Pakistan welcomed the statement by Vajpayee, but said "these statements should now materialize into reality." He said Pakistan hoped immediate steps could be taken towards beginning dialogue and that any foreign mediation would be welcomed. Khan, however, rejected any preconditions for the talks. India has said Pakistan must first stop the infiltration of Islamic militant groups into its portion of Kashmir. Pakistan says no infiltration is taking place, and it only offers moral support to the insU-R-G-E-N-Ts. ********************************************************************************************************* 11:19:01 KYRGYZSTAN LANDSLIDE 11:19:23 DAMMAGE FROM THE MUDSLIDE 11:19:34 PAN OVER THE PATH OF THE MUDSLIDE, TOUR-DOWN BUILDINGS ON THE SIDE OF A HILL 11:19:54 MEN DIGGING THROUGH TREES 11:20:13 MEN CHOPPING UP TREES, TRYING TO MOVE AWAY SOME OF THE DIRT STORY: ++Kyrgyzstan Landslide - NEW Aftermath, rescue operation following landslide that killed 38 LENGTH: 1:49 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372192 DATELINE: Kara-Taryk, Osh Region, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ++QUALITY AS INCOMING++ 1.

Rescue workers from the Ministry of Ecology and Emergency Situations spent Monday picking through the debris in search of survivors and victims of the tragedy.

Various of patients having temperature taken with ear thermometer STORYLINE: Countries across Asia stepped up their defences against SARS on Monday as China's death toll from the SARS virus rose by seven to 86 and Beijing's new mayor was reportedly dismissed for mishandling the outbreak. The new figures raised the death toll in Beijing to 20 and the number of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome to 448. They were included in a daily report by China's Health Ministry to the World Health Organisation, which also said the country's total number of cases had risen to 1,959. A SARS outbreak at Singapore's largest wholesale vegetable market has prompted the quarantine of all 2,400 workers there and raised fears the virus has moved out of hospitals into the community. Three people working in separate buildings at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre have contracted the severe acute respiratory syndrome and one of them has since died. Authorities were unable to trace all the people the victims came into contact with in the crowded shopping area and have closed the whole market. On Monday, police stood guard as cleaners were sent in to sterilise the 24-hour market. Pasir Panjang is the main auction centre for 70 per cent of imported fruit and vegetables and food shortages resulting from its closure are likely to be felt keenly in shops and restaurants. Another 83 people outside the market have also come under quarantine. Of these, 33 have been traced to a taxi driver who was infected by the virus after ferrying one of the market workers and passed it on to members of his family, three other drivers and 14 passengers. Temperature testing areas for cab drivers has now been set up around Singapore after business halved. Volunteers check for an unnaturally high temperature - a symptom of fever - and then hand them an "all-clear" badge which they display for passengers. Health officials and medical experts at an international conference on SARS in Taipei called on Monday for a high state of alert to contain the spread of the virus. Joseph Sung, a professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said efforts had to be focused on prevention because curing the disease was impossible. In an attempt to reduce the spread of SARS through contact with health care professionals, Taiwanese officials now require all patients on the island to take temperature checks before they see doctors. ************************************************************************************************************* HONG KONG SARS STORY: HKong SARS - REPLAY Latest developments on SARS outbreak LENGTH: 2:23 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: No Hong Kong TYPE: Cantonese/Nat SOURCE: ATV STORY NUMBER: 372143 DATELINE: Hong Kong, 19/21 April 2003/ Recent SHOTLIST: April 19, 2003 1.

Various of children putting on masks at school 12. Various of students wearing masks STORYLINE: Hong Kong's government leader claimed on Monday that efforts to contain the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the territory are paying off and that he is growing more confident about beating the disease. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said this was down to the quarantining of the households of victims and tracking down potential contacts. His upbeat message was repeated by Margaret Chan, Hong Kong's Director of Health. At a news conference Monday, Chan said that "the public health system is adequate for Hong Kong citizens." Hong Kong reported six more SARS deaths on Monday, bringing the toll to 94. 22 new cases were announced bringing the total to 1,402, but 436 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. Babies born to Hong Kong SARS victims have developed respiratory problems. Hong Kong Health Director Margaret Chan described the condition of the infants as "unstable". Tung said 150 suspected SARS cases have been identified through Hong Kong's stepped-up measures to find people exposed to the disease. Those people have been able to receive early treatment - which Hong Kong doctors fighting SARS say is crucial. The two women and four men who died in the past 24 hours all had previous chronic illnesses, officials said. Hong Kong announced April 10 it would quarantine households of recently diagnosed SARS victims - ordering people to stay home for 10 days so that anyone who might have picked up the disease from a family member would not spread it any further. Some critics had accused Hong Kong of being too slow with such measures while it tries to stop the disease that has thrown the territory into its biggest crisis in years. ************************************************************************************************************* 11:27:15 ITALY GLADIATOR: MEN DRESSED UP AS GLADIATORS 11:27:55 GLADIATORS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS ************************************************************************************************************* 11:28:49 BASRA CHOLERA--GOOD STUFF 11:28:57 UNICEF TRUCK DRVING DOWN ROAD 11:29:11 SOLDIER 11:29:18 SOT WITH UNICEF WORKER: CHOLERA IS VERY PREVALENT WHEN THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE POOR...PEOPLE LIVING IN CLOSE CONFINES...DISEASE CAN BE PREVALENT..." 11:29:52 PEOPLE WAIT TO GET 11:29:57 POEPLE FILLING THEIR BUCKETS WITH WATER 11:30:14 SOT FROM UK SOLDIER: "WE HAVE THE THREAT OF CHOLERA IN THE REGION..." 11:30:38 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER THAT IS SPRAYING 11:30:48 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER, TAKING A BATH, HAS SOAP IN HAND ************************************************************************************************************ 11:32:04 BAGHDAD CUSTODY 11:32:21 NIGHT FOOTAGE OUTSIDE JAIL? 11:32:33 ZOOM-INTO WINDOW THAT HAS BARS ON THE OUTSIDE 11:32:47 FOOTAGE OF AL-TIKRITI WEARING A HEADRESS, THROUGH A NARROW WINDOW, HE'S SMILING 11:33:20 ANOTHER IRAQI, DRINKING SOMETHING 11:33:25 BACK OF TIKRITI SITTING ON CHAIR 11:33:58 END OF BULLETIN ************************************************************************************************************ 11:34:39 DUBAI TV

Various of pilgrims shouting religious slogans 11. Pilgrims beating themselves with chains STORYLINE: Thousands of Shia pilgrims have reached the holy shrines of Abas and al-Hussein in the Iraqi city of Karbala, completing a traditional pilgrimage which was banned under Saddam Hussein's Sunni muslim regime. Across Iraq, Shia pilgrims journeyed to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, while Christians packed churches for Easter, giving full voice to religious convictions that had been suppressed by Saddam. They have marched to the holy cities under black banners of mourning for Imam Hussein, the martyred grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Al-Hussein's shrine is in Karbala, while his father, Imam Ali, son-in-law of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, is buried in Najaf. As many as two million Shia from Iraq, Iran and elsewhere are expected to converge on the two holy cities later in the week. The event is one of the biggest events of the Islamic calendar. There are fears that religious rivalries that had been uneasily - and sometimes brutally - kept in check might flare anew and consume the new order. Saddam's government was officially secular but dominated by Sunni Muslims, who often put down Iraq's Shia majority. Shia make up 60 percent of Iraq's 24 (m) million people. The United States (U.S.) troops kept a low profile during the pilgrimage - hoping that festering internal rifts or anti-American feelings didnt erupt amongst the surging masses. ***************************************************************** 11:07:03 BAGHDAD GARNER 2 11:07:09 GARNERSON RUNWAY, JUST GOT OFF PLANE 11:07:18 INTERVIEW: "ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH, POWER, WATER..." 11:07:38 GARNER WALKING WITH TROOPS 11:07:48 GARNER SHAKING HANDS WITH A GROUP OF OTHERS 11:08:07 GARNER LISTENING TO A MAN 11:08:13 CLOSE-UP OF GARNER'S FACE 11:08:26 MEETING WTIH HEALTH OFFICIALS IN IRAQ, GARNER IS SPEAKING 11:08:41 SOT WITH IRAQI WOMAN (IN ARABIC) 11:09:06 GARNER SPEAKING WTIH MILITARY PERSONNEL 11:09:26 GARNER WALKS UP TO SHAKE HANDS 11:09:36 GARNER ON THE STREETS SHAKING LOCAL IRAQIS HANDS 11:09:52 GARNER GETTIGN A TOUR OF A PLANT 11:10:09 GARNER SOT: " I DON'T RULE ANYTHING, I AM THE COALITION FACILITATOR, WITH OUR ASSISTANCE WE CAN BEGIN THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND END UP A DEMOCRACY..."

Garner landed at Baghdad's airport after a short flight from Kuwait, 12 days after US tanks and troops secured the Iraqi capital and brought down Saddam Hussein's regime. He said his top priority was to restore basic services such as water and electricity "as soon as we can." His first visit was to Baghdad's one-thousand-bed Yarmouk hospital, which was overwhelmed with Iraqi casualties in the final days of the war. Its wards, including the coronary and respiratory care units, were then stripped of almost everything by looters. Garner also visited a sewage plant and a power station in southern Baghdad. Garner, who will report to Central Command chief Gen. Tommy Franks, said he intended to complete his work and leave as soon as possible, but declined to give a timeframe. There were mixed reactions among Baghdad's residents to Garner's arrival. Some said they objected to an American being in charge, while others said the most important thing was to reestablish order and security. ************************************************************** 11:11:12 KUWAIT UK TROOPS: TROOPS LEAVING KUWAIT TO GO HOME 11:11:30 VARIOUS SHOTS OF SOLDIERS AROUND EQUIPMENT, INSEPCTING THEIR EQUIPMENT 11:12:01 AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE GOES OUT INTO THE WATER FROM LAND 11:12:24 AMPHIBOUS 11:12:31 SOT FROM UK SOLIDER: WE WOULD LIKE TO BE FULLY LOADED TOMORROW...IT WILL TAKE 6-8 WEEKS" 11:12:59 SOLDIERS ON BOATS IN PORT STORY: ++Kuwait UK Troops - NEW British troops leave region for home LENGTH: 2:25 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL STORY NUMBER: 372185 DATELINE: Kuwait, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

In Kuwait, Royal Marines from the 539th Assault Squad started loading equipment and soldiers onto ships. Hovercraft and small cargo vessels are being used to ferry thousands of tons of equipment and vehicles to larger ships offshore. The 539th Assault Squad was responsible for the capture of the Al Faw peninsula and its oil facilities in the early days of the war. Across southern Iraq, British troops are preparing to turn over much of the administrative responsibility to Iraqis. But UK soldiers will continue to play a role in aid delivery and infrastructure development. A recently appointed Basra province governor is working with British troops to re-establish a police force and provide basic services to the region. But electricity and water remain in short supply. **************************************************************** 11:13:47 SYRIA SPAIN: SYRIAN PRESIDENT MEETS SPAIN FM 11:14:02 PHOTO OP BETWEEN THE TWO, SITTING ON CHAIRS 11:16:39 SOT: "POLITICAL CULTURE, WE ARE ENDING UP WITH TWO PEOPLE COMPETING STORY: ++Syria Spain - NEW Syrian president Assad meets Spanish FM LENGTH: 0:27 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: No Access Syria TYPE: Mute SOURCE: SYRIAN TV STORY NUMBER: 372195 DATELINE: Damascus, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

After a two hour meeting with Assad, Palacio praised Syria as a "very responsible international actor, and constructive and pragmatic." Palacio, whose country maintains good relations with Damascus and Washington, stressed several times that Syria is not under military threat from the United States.

Various of press conference STORYLINE: Pakistan said on Monday that it was ready to hold peace talks with nuclear rival India "anytime, anyplace and at any level," and said it hoped to work out specific dates for negotiations within days. The offer by Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan was in response to Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statement on Saturday that he is ready for talks to resolve all disputes between the South Asian neighbours, including the issue of Kashmir - the source of two wars between the two sides. Khan told a news conference that Pakistan welcomed the statement by Vajpayee, but said "these statements should now materialize into reality." He said Pakistan hoped immediate steps could be taken towards beginning dialogue and that any foreign mediation would be welcomed. Khan, however, rejected any preconditions for the talks. India has said Pakistan must first stop the infiltration of Islamic militant groups into its portion of Kashmir. Pakistan says no infiltration is taking place, and it only offers moral support to the insU-R-G-E-N-Ts. ********************************************************************************************************* 11:19:01 KYRGYZSTAN LANDSLIDE 11:19:23 DAMMAGE FROM THE MUDSLIDE 11:19:34 PAN OVER THE PATH OF THE MUDSLIDE, TOUR-DOWN BUILDINGS ON THE SIDE OF A HILL 11:19:54 MEN DIGGING THROUGH TREES 11:20:13 MEN CHOPPING UP TREES, TRYING TO MOVE AWAY SOME OF THE DIRT STORY: ++Kyrgyzstan Landslide - NEW Aftermath, rescue operation following landslide that killed 38 LENGTH: 1:49 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372192 DATELINE: Kara-Taryk, Osh Region, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ++QUALITY AS INCOMING++ 1.

Various of patients having temperature taken with ear thermometer STORYLINE: Countries across Asia stepped up their defences against SARS on Monday as China's death toll from the SARS virus rose by seven to 86 and Beijing's new mayor was reportedly dismissed for mishandling the outbreak. The new figures raised the death toll in Beijing to 20 and the number of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome to 448. They were included in a daily report by China's Health Ministry to the World Health Organisation, which also said the country's total number of cases had risen to 1,959. A SARS outbreak at Singapore's largest wholesale vegetable market has prompted the quarantine of all 2,400 workers there and raised fears the virus has moved out of hospitals into the community. Three people working in separate buildings at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre have contracted the severe acute respiratory syndrome and one of them has since died. Authorities were unable to trace all the people the victims came into contact with in the crowded shopping area and have closed the whole market. On Monday, police stood guard as cleaners were sent in to sterilise the 24-hour market. Pasir Panjang is the main auction centre for 70 per cent of imported fruit and vegetables and food shortages resulting from its closure are likely to be felt keenly in shops and restaurants. Another 83 people outside the market have also come under quarantine. Of these, 33 have been traced to a taxi driver who was infected by the virus after ferrying one of the market workers and passed it on to members of his family, three other drivers and 14 passengers. Temperature testing areas for cab drivers has now been set up around Singapore after business halved. Volunteers check for an unnaturally high temperature - a symptom of fever - and then hand them an "all-clear" badge which they display for passengers. Health officials and medical experts at an international conference on SARS in Taipei called on Monday for a high state of alert to contain the spread of the virus. Joseph Sung, a professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said efforts had to be focused on prevention because curing the disease was impossible. In an attempt to reduce the spread of SARS through contact with health care professionals, Taiwanese officials now require all patients on the island to take temperature checks before they see doctors. ************************************************************************************************************* HONG KONG SARS STORY: HKong SARS - REPLAY Latest developments on SARS outbreak LENGTH: 2:23 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: No Hong Kong TYPE: Cantonese/Nat SOURCE: ATV STORY NUMBER: 372143 DATELINE: Hong Kong, 19/21 April 2003/ Recent SHOTLIST: April 19, 2003 1.

Various of children putting on masks at school 12. Various of students wearing masks STORYLINE: Hong Kong's government leader claimed on Monday that efforts to contain the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the territory are paying off and that he is growing more confident about beating the disease. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said this was down to the quarantining of the households of victims and tracking down potential contacts. His upbeat message was repeated by Margaret Chan, Hong Kong's Director of Health. At a news conference Monday, Chan said that "the public health system is adequate for Hong Kong citizens." Hong Kong reported six more SARS deaths on Monday, bringing the toll to 94. 22 new cases were announced bringing the total to 1,402, but 436 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. Babies born to Hong Kong SARS victims have developed respiratory problems. Hong Kong Health Director Margaret Chan described the condition of the infants as "unstable". Tung said 150 suspected SARS cases have been identified through Hong Kong's stepped-up measures to find people exposed to the disease. Those people have been able to receive early treatment - which Hong Kong doctors fighting SARS say is crucial. The two women and four men who died in the past 24 hours all had previous chronic illnesses, officials said. Hong Kong announced April 10 it would quarantine households of recently diagnosed SARS victims - ordering people to stay home for 10 days so that anyone who might have picked up the disease from a family member would not spread it any further. Some critics had accused Hong Kong of being too slow with such measures while it tries to stop the disease that has thrown the territory into its biggest crisis in years. ************************************************************************************************************* 11:27:15 ITALY GLADIATOR: MEN DRESSED UP AS GLADIATORS 11:27:55 GLADIATORS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS ************************************************************************************************************* 11:28:49 BASRA CHOLERA--GOOD STUFF 11:28:57 UNICEF TRUCK DRVING DOWN ROAD 11:29:11 SOLDIER 11:29:18 SOT WITH UNICEF WORKER: CHOLERA IS VERY PREVALENT WHEN THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE POOR...PEOPLE LIVING IN CLOSE CONFINES...DISEASE CAN BE PREVALENT..." 11:29:52 PEOPLE WAIT TO GET 11:29:57 POEPLE FILLING THEIR BUCKETS WITH WATER 11:30:14 SOT FROM UK SOLDIER: "WE HAVE THE THREAT OF CHOLERA IN THE REGION..." 11:30:38 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER THAT IS SPRAYING 11:30:48 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER, TAKING A BATH, HAS SOAP IN HAND ************************************************************************************************************ 11:32:04 BAGHDAD CUSTODY 11:32:21 NIGHT FOOTAGE OUTSIDE JAIL? 11:32:33 ZOOM-INTO WINDOW THAT HAS BARS ON THE OUTSIDE 11:32:47 FOOTAGE OF AL-TIKRITI WEARING A HEADRESS, THROUGH A NARROW WINDOW, HE'S SMILING 11:33:20 ANOTHER IRAQI, DRINKING SOMETHING 11:33:25 BACK OF TIKRITI SITTING ON CHAIR 11:33:58 END OF BULLETIN ************************************************************************************************************ 11:34:39 DUBAI TV 11:53:57 NILE TV 12:08:54 MIDDLE EAST FEED 12:09:00 REPLAY SYRIA SPAIN 12:13:58 REPLAY PAKISTAN INDIA 12:16:49 SPORTS CHANGE TAPE **********************************************************************************************************

Various of pilgrims shouting religious slogans 11. Pilgrims beating themselves with chains STORYLINE: Thousands of Shia pilgrims have reached the holy shrines of Abas and al-Hussein in the Iraqi city of Karbala, completing a traditional pilgrimage which was banned under Saddam Hussein's Sunni muslim regime. Across Iraq, Shia pilgrims journeyed to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, while Christians packed churches for Easter, giving full voice to religious convictions that had been suppressed by Saddam. They have marched to the holy cities under black banners of mourning for Imam Hussein, the martyred grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Al-Hussein's shrine is in Karbala, while his father, Imam Ali, son-in-law of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, is buried in Najaf. As many as two million Shia from Iraq, Iran and elsewhere are expected to converge on the two holy cities later in the week. The event is one of the biggest events of the Islamic calendar. There are fears that religious rivalries that had been uneasily - and sometimes brutally - kept in check might flare anew and consume the new order. Saddam's government was officially secular but dominated by Sunni Muslims, who often put down Iraq's Shia majority. Shia make up 60 percent of Iraq's 24 (m) million people. The United States (U.S.) troops kept a low profile during the pilgrimage - hoping that festering internal rifts or anti-American feelings didnt erupt amongst the surging masses. ***************************************************************** 11:07:03 BAGHDAD GARNER 2 11:07:09 GARNERSON RUNWAY, JUST GOT OFF PLANE 11:07:18 INTERVIEW: "ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH, POWER, WATER..." 11:07:38 GARNER WALKING WITH TROOPS 11:07:48 GARNER SHAKING HANDS WITH A GROUP OF OTHERS 11:08:07 GARNER LISTENING TO A MAN 11:08:13 CLOSE-UP OF GARNER'S FACE 11:08:26 MEETING WTIH HEALTH OFFICIALS IN IRAQ, GARNER IS SPEAKING 11:08:41 SOT WITH IRAQI WOMAN (IN ARABIC) 11:09:06 GARNER SPEAKING WTIH MILITARY PERSONNEL 11:09:26 GARNER WALKS UP TO SHAKE HANDS 11:09:36 GARNER ON THE STREETS SHAKING LOCAL IRAQIS HANDS 11:09:52 GARNER GETTIGN A TOUR OF A PLANT 11:10:09 GARNER SOT: " I DON'T RULE ANYTHING, I AM THE COALITION FACILITATOR, WITH OUR ASSISTANCE WE CAN BEGIN THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND END UP A DEMOCRACY..."

Street scene STORYLINE: Retired US Lieutenant General Jay Garner arrived on Monday to take up his duties as Iraq's postwar civil administrator in a Baghdad still largely without power or clean water. Garner landed at Baghdad's airport after a short flight from Kuwait, 12 days after US tanks and troops secured the Iraqi capital and brought down Saddam Hussein's regime. He said his top priority was to restore basic services such as water and electricity "as soon as we can." His first visit was to Baghdad's one-thousand-bed Yarmouk hospital, which was overwhelmed with Iraqi casualties in the final days of the war. Its wards, including the coronary and respiratory care units, were then stripped of almost everything by looters. Garner also visited a sewage plant and a power station in southern Baghdad. Garner, who will report to Central Command chief Gen. Tommy Franks, said he intended to complete his work and leave as soon as possible, but declined to give a timeframe. There were mixed reactions among Baghdad's residents to Garner's arrival. Some said they objected to an American being in charge, while others said the most important thing was to reestablish order and security. ************************************************************** 11:11:12 KUWAIT UK TROOPS: TROOPS LEAVING KUWAIT TO GO HOME 11:11:30 VARIOUS SHOTS OF SOLDIERS AROUND EQUIPMENT, INSEPCTING THEIR EQUIPMENT 11:12:01 AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE GOES OUT INTO THE WATER FROM LAND 11:12:24 AMPHIBOUS 11:12:31 SOT FROM UK SOLIDER: WE WOULD LIKE TO BE FULLY LOADED TOMORROW...IT WILL TAKE 6-8 WEEKS" 11:12:59 SOLDIERS ON BOATS IN PORT STORY: ++Kuwait UK Troops - NEW British troops leave region for home LENGTH: 2:25 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL STORY NUMBER: 372185 DATELINE: Kuwait, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Various of press conference STORYLINE: Pakistan said on Monday that it was ready to hold peace talks with nuclear rival India "anytime, anyplace and at any level," and said it hoped to work out specific dates for negotiations within days. The offer by Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan was in response to Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statement on Saturday that he is ready for talks to resolve all disputes between the South Asian neighbours, including the issue of Kashmir - the source of two wars between the two sides. Khan told a news conference that Pakistan welcomed the statement by Vajpayee, but said "these statements should now materialize into reality." He said Pakistan hoped immediate steps could be taken towards beginning dialogue and that any foreign mediation would be welcomed. Khan, however, rejected any preconditions for the talks. India has said Pakistan must first stop the infiltration of Islamic militant groups into its portion of Kashmir. Pakistan says no infiltration is taking place, and it only offers moral support to the insU-R-G-E-N-Ts. ********************************************************************************************************* 11:19:01 KYRGYZSTAN LANDSLIDE 11:19:23 DAMMAGE FROM THE MUDSLIDE 11:19:34 PAN OVER THE PATH OF THE MUDSLIDE, TOUR-DOWN BUILDINGS ON THE SIDE OF A HILL 11:19:54 MEN DIGGING THROUGH TREES 11:20:13 MEN CHOPPING UP TREES, TRYING TO MOVE AWAY SOME OF THE DIRT STORY: ++Kyrgyzstan Landslide - NEW Aftermath, rescue operation following landslide that killed 38 LENGTH: 1:49 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372192 DATELINE: Kara-Taryk, Osh Region, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ++QUALITY AS INCOMING++ 1.

Various of patients having temperature taken with ear thermometer STORYLINE: Countries across Asia stepped up their defences against SARS on Monday as China's death toll from the SARS virus rose by seven to 86 and Beijing's new mayor was reportedly dismissed for mishandling the outbreak. The new figures raised the death toll in Beijing to 20 and the number of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome to 448. They were included in a daily report by China's Health Ministry to the World Health Organisation, which also said the country's total number of cases had risen to 1,959. A SARS outbreak at Singapore's largest wholesale vegetable market has prompted the quarantine of all 2,400 workers there and raised fears the virus has moved out of hospitals into the community. Three people working in separate buildings at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre have contracted the severe acute respiratory syndrome and one of them has since died. Authorities were unable to trace all the people the victims came into contact with in the crowded shopping area and have closed the whole market. On Monday, police stood guard as cleaners were sent in to sterilise the 24-hour market. Pasir Panjang is the main auction centre for 70 per cent of imported fruit and vegetables and food shortages resulting from its closure are likely to be felt keenly in shops and restaurants. Another 83 people outside the market have also come under quarantine. Of these, 33 have been traced to a taxi driver who was infected by the virus after ferrying one of the market workers and passed it on to members of his family, three other drivers and 14 passengers. Temperature testing areas for cab drivers has now been set up around Singapore after business halved. Volunteers check for an unnaturally high temperature - a symptom of fever - and then hand them an "all-clear" badge which they display for passengers. Health officials and medical experts at an international conference on SARS in Taipei called on Monday for a high state of alert to contain the spread of the virus. Joseph Sung, a professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said efforts had to be focused on prevention because curing the disease was impossible. In an attempt to reduce the spread of SARS through contact with health care professionals, Taiwanese officials now require all patients on the island to take temperature checks before they see doctors. ************************************************************************************************************* HONG KONG SARS STORY: HKong SARS - REPLAY Latest developments on SARS outbreak LENGTH: 2:23 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: No Hong Kong TYPE: Cantonese/Nat SOURCE: ATV STORY NUMBER: 372143 DATELINE: Hong Kong, 19/21 April 2003/ Recent SHOTLIST: April 19, 2003 1.

Various of children putting on masks at school 12. Various of students wearing masks STORYLINE: Hong Kong's government leader claimed on Monday that efforts to contain the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the territory are paying off and that he is growing more confident about beating the disease. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said this was down to the quarantining of the households of victims and tracking down potential contacts. His upbeat message was repeated by Margaret Chan, Hong Kong's Director of Health. At a news conference Monday, Chan said that "the public health system is adequate for Hong Kong citizens." Hong Kong reported six more SARS deaths on Monday, bringing the toll to 94. 22 new cases were announced bringing the total to 1,402, but 436 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. Babies born to Hong Kong SARS victims have developed respiratory problems. Hong Kong Health Director Margaret Chan described the condition of the infants as "unstable". Tung said 150 suspected SARS cases have been identified through Hong Kong's stepped-up measures to find people exposed to the disease. Those people have been able to receive early treatment - which Hong Kong doctors fighting SARS say is crucial. The two women and four men who died in the past 24 hours all had previous chronic illnesses, officials said. Hong Kong announced April 10 it would quarantine households of recently diagnosed SARS victims - ordering people to stay home for 10 days so that anyone who might have picked up the disease from a family member would not spread it any further. Some critics had accused Hong Kong of being too slow with such measures while it tries to stop the disease that has thrown the territory into its biggest crisis in years. ************************************************************************************************************* 11:27:15 ITALY GLADIATOR: MEN DRESSED UP AS GLADIATORS 11:27:55 GLADIATORS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS ************************************************************************************************************* 11:28:49 BASRA CHOLERA--GOOD STUFF 11:28:57 UNICEF TRUCK DRVING DOWN ROAD 11:29:11 SOLDIER 11:29:18 SOT WITH UNICEF WORKER: CHOLERA IS VERY PREVALENT WHEN THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE POOR...PEOPLE LIVING IN CLOSE CONFINES...DISEASE CAN BE PREVALENT..." 11:29:52 PEOPLE WAIT TO GET 11:29:57 POEPLE FILLING THEIR BUCKETS WITH WATER 11:30:14 SOT FROM UK SOLDIER: "WE HAVE THE THREAT OF CHOLERA IN THE REGION..." 11:30:38 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER THAT IS SPRAYING 11:30:48 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER, TAKING A BATH, HAS SOAP IN HAND ************************************************************************************************************ 11:32:04 BAGHDAD CUSTODY 11:32:21 NIGHT FOOTAGE OUTSIDE JAIL? 11:32:33 ZOOM-INTO WINDOW THAT HAS BARS ON THE OUTSIDE 11:32:47 FOOTAGE OF AL-TIKRITI WEARING A HEADRESS, THROUGH A NARROW WINDOW, HE'S SMILING 11:33:20 ANOTHER IRAQI, DRINKING SOMETHING 11:33:25 BACK OF TIKRITI SITTING ON CHAIR 11:33:58 END OF BULLETIN ************************************************************************************************************ 11:34:39 DUBAI TV 11:53:57 NILE TV 12:08:54 MIDDLE EAST FEED 12:09:00 REPLAY SYRIA SPAIN 12:13:58 REPLAY PAKISTAN INDIA 12:16:49 SPORTS CHANGE TAPE **********************************************************************************************************

Various of pilgrims shouting religious slogans 11. Pilgrims beating themselves with chains STORYLINE: Thousands of Shia pilgrims have reached the holy shrines of Abas and al-Hussein in the Iraqi city of Karbala, completing a traditional pilgrimage which was banned under Saddam Hussein's Sunni muslim regime. Across Iraq, Shia pilgrims journeyed to the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, while Christians packed churches for Easter, giving full voice to religious convictions that had been suppressed by Saddam. They have marched to the holy cities under black banners of mourning for Imam Hussein, the martyred grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and one of the sect's most revered saints. Al-Hussein's shrine is in Karbala, while his father, Imam Ali, son-in-law of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, is buried in Najaf. As many as two million Shia from Iraq, Iran and elsewhere are expected to converge on the two holy cities later in the week. The event is one of the biggest events of the Islamic calendar. There are fears that religious rivalries that had been uneasily - and sometimes brutally - kept in check might flare anew and consume the new order. Saddam's government was officially secular but dominated by Sunni Muslims, who often put down Iraq's Shia majority. Shia make up 60 percent of Iraq's 24 (m) million people. The United States (U.S.) troops kept a low profile during the pilgrimage - hoping that festering internal rifts or anti-American feelings didnt erupt amongst the surging masses. ***************************************************************** 11:07:03 BAGHDAD GARNER 2 11:07:09 GARNERSON RUNWAY, JUST GOT OFF PLANE 11:07:18 INTERVIEW: "ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH, POWER, WATER..." 11:07:38 GARNER WALKING WITH TROOPS 11:07:48 GARNER SHAKING HANDS WITH A GROUP OF OTHERS 11:08:07 GARNER LISTENING TO A MAN 11:08:13 CLOSE-UP OF GARNER'S FACE 11:08:26 MEETING WTIH HEALTH OFFICIALS IN IRAQ, GARNER IS SPEAKING 11:08:41 SOT WITH IRAQI WOMAN (IN ARABIC) 11:09:06 GARNER SPEAKING WTIH MILITARY PERSONNEL 11:09:26 GARNER WALKS UP TO SHAKE HANDS 11:09:36 GARNER ON THE STREETS SHAKING LOCAL IRAQIS HANDS 11:09:52 GARNER GETTIGN A TOUR OF A PLANT 11:10:09 GARNER SOT: " I DON'T RULE ANYTHING, I AM THE COALITION FACILITATOR, WITH OUR ASSISTANCE WE CAN BEGIN THE RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND END UP A DEMOCRACY..."

Street scene STORYLINE: Retired US Lieutenant General Jay Garner arrived on Monday to take up his duties as Iraq's postwar civil administrator in a Baghdad still largely without power or clean water. Garner landed at Baghdad's airport after a short flight from Kuwait, 12 days after US tanks and troops secured the Iraqi capital and brought down Saddam Hussein's regime. He said his top priority was to restore basic services such as water and electricity "as soon as we can." His first visit was to Baghdad's one-thousand-bed Yarmouk hospital, which was overwhelmed with Iraqi casualties in the final days of the war. Its wards, including the coronary and respiratory care units, were then stripped of almost everything by looters. Garner also visited a sewage plant and a power station in southern Baghdad. Garner, who will report to Central Command chief Gen. Tommy Franks, said he intended to complete his work and leave as soon as possible, but declined to give a timeframe. There were mixed reactions among Baghdad's residents to Garner's arrival. Some said they objected to an American being in charge, while others said the most important thing was to reestablish order and security. ************************************************************** 11:11:12 KUWAIT UK TROOPS: TROOPS LEAVING KUWAIT TO GO HOME 11:11:30 VARIOUS SHOTS OF SOLDIERS AROUND EQUIPMENT, INSEPCTING THEIR EQUIPMENT 11:12:01 AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLE GOES OUT INTO THE WATER FROM LAND 11:12:24 AMPHIBOUS 11:12:31 SOT FROM UK SOLIDER: WE WOULD LIKE TO BE FULLY LOADED TOMORROW...IT WILL TAKE 6-8 WEEKS" 11:12:59 SOLDIERS ON BOATS IN PORT STORY: ++Kuwait UK Troops - NEW British troops leave region for home LENGTH: 2:25 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: POOL STORY NUMBER: 372185 DATELINE: Kuwait, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: 1.

Various of press conference STORYLINE: Pakistan said on Monday that it was ready to hold peace talks with nuclear rival India "anytime, anyplace and at any level," and said it hoped to work out specific dates for negotiations within days. The offer by Foreign Ministry spokesman Aziz Ahmad Khan was in response to Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's statement on Saturday that he is ready for talks to resolve all disputes between the South Asian neighbours, including the issue of Kashmir - the source of two wars between the two sides. Khan told a news conference that Pakistan welcomed the statement by Vajpayee, but said "these statements should now materialize into reality." He said Pakistan hoped immediate steps could be taken towards beginning dialogue and that any foreign mediation would be welcomed. Khan, however, rejected any preconditions for the talks. India has said Pakistan must first stop the infiltration of Islamic militant groups into its portion of Kashmir. Pakistan says no infiltration is taking place, and it only offers moral support to the insU-R-G-E-N-Ts. ********************************************************************************************************* 11:19:01 KYRGYZSTAN LANDSLIDE 11:19:23 DAMMAGE FROM THE MUDSLIDE 11:19:34 PAN OVER THE PATH OF THE MUDSLIDE, TOUR-DOWN BUILDINGS ON THE SIDE OF A HILL 11:19:54 MEN DIGGING THROUGH TREES 11:20:13 MEN CHOPPING UP TREES, TRYING TO MOVE AWAY SOME OF THE DIRT STORY: ++Kyrgyzstan Landslide - NEW Aftermath, rescue operation following landslide that killed 38 LENGTH: 1:49 FIRST RUN: 1500 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Natsound SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372192 DATELINE: Kara-Taryk, Osh Region, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: ++QUALITY AS INCOMING++ 1.

About 1.5 million cubic metres of mud swept through the village on Sunday night, destroying everything in its path. Rescue workers from the Ministry of Ecology and Emergency Situations spent Monday picking through the debris in search of survivors and victims of the tragedy. Officials in the capital Bishkek said residents had been warned about the landslide danger three days prior to the tragedy, but chose to ignore advice urging them to leave the village. ************************************************************************************************************ 11:21:01 AISA SARS: EFFORTS ACROSS ASIA TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF SARS 11:21:17 POLICE ON THS SIDE OF STREET 11:21:29 POLICE OFFICER HOLDING A MASK 11:21:34 NEWSPAPER STAND 11:21:39 TEMPERATURE CHECKPOINT 11:21:52 LABELS ONCE YOUR CAR IS CHECKED 11:22:02 GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS MEETING STORY: Asia SARS - WRAP Efforts across Asia to prevent the spread of SARS LENGTH: 3:01 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: APTN Clients Only TYPE: Mandarin/Nat SOURCE: APTN STORY NUMBER: 372162 DATELINE: Various, 21 April 2003 SHOTLIST: (FIRST RUN 0715 ASIA PACIFIC LATE, 21 APRIL 2003) Singapore - 21 April 2003 1.

The new figures raised the death toll in Beijing to 20 and the number of cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome to 448. They were included in a daily report by China's Health Ministry to the World Health Organisation, which also said the country's total number of cases had risen to 1,959. A SARS outbreak at Singapore's largest wholesale vegetable market has prompted the quarantine of all 2,400 workers there and raised fears the virus has moved out of hospitals into the community. Three people working in separate buildings at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre have contracted the severe acute respiratory syndrome and one of them has since died. Authorities were unable to trace all the people the victims came into contact with in the crowded shopping area and have closed the whole market. On Monday, police stood guard as cleaners were sent in to sterilise the 24-hour market. Pasir Panjang is the main auction centre for 70 per cent of imported fruit and vegetables and food shortages resulting from its closure are likely to be felt keenly in shops and restaurants. Another 83 people outside the market have also come under quarantine. Of these, 33 have been traced to a taxi driver who was infected by the virus after ferrying one of the market workers and passed it on to members of his family, three other drivers and 14 passengers. Temperature testing areas for cab drivers has now been set up around Singapore after business halved. Volunteers check for an unnaturally high temperature - a symptom of fever - and then hand them an "all-clear" badge which they display for passengers. Health officials and medical experts at an international conference on SARS in Taipei called on Monday for a high state of alert to contain the spread of the virus. Joseph Sung, a professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said efforts had to be focused on prevention because curing the disease was impossible. In an attempt to reduce the spread of SARS through contact with health care professionals, Taiwanese officials now require all patients on the island to take temperature checks before they see doctors. ************************************************************************************************************* HONG KONG SARS STORY: HKong SARS - REPLAY Latest developments on SARS outbreak LENGTH: 2:23 FIRST RUN: 1200 RESTRICTIONS: No Hong Kong TYPE: Cantonese/Nat SOURCE: ATV STORY NUMBER: 372143 DATELINE: Hong Kong, 19/21 April 2003/ Recent SHOTLIST: April 19, 2003 1.

Various of students wearing masks STORYLINE: Hong Kong's government leader claimed on Monday that efforts to contain the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the territory are paying off and that he is growing more confident about beating the disease. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said this was down to the quarantining of the households of victims and tracking down potential contacts. His upbeat message was repeated by Margaret Chan, Hong Kong's Director of Health. At a news conference Monday, Chan said that "the public health system is adequate for Hong Kong citizens." Hong Kong reported six more SARS deaths on Monday, bringing the toll to 94. 22 new cases were announced bringing the total to 1,402, but 436 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. Babies born to Hong Kong SARS victims have developed respiratory problems. Hong Kong Health Director Margaret Chan described the condition of the infants as "unstable". Tung said 150 suspected SARS cases have been identified through Hong Kong's stepped-up measures to find people exposed to the disease. Those people have been able to receive early treatment - which Hong Kong doctors fighting SARS say is crucial. The two women and four men who died in the past 24 hours all had previous chronic illnesses, officials said. Hong Kong announced April 10 it would quarantine households of recently diagnosed SARS victims - ordering people to stay home for 10 days so that anyone who might have picked up the disease from a family member would not spread it any further. Some critics had accused Hong Kong of being too slow with such measures while it tries to stop the disease that has thrown the territory into its biggest crisis in years. ************************************************************************************************************* 11:27:15 ITALY GLADIATOR: MEN DRESSED UP AS GLADIATORS 11:27:55 GLADIATORS MARCHING THROUGH STREETS ************************************************************************************************************* 11:28:49 BASRA CHOLERA--GOOD STUFF 11:28:57 UNICEF TRUCK DRVING DOWN ROAD 11:29:11 SOLDIER 11:29:18 SOT WITH UNICEF WORKER: CHOLERA IS VERY PREVALENT WHEN THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE POOR...PEOPLE LIVING IN CLOSE CONFINES...DISEASE CAN BE PREVALENT..." 11:29:52 PEOPLE WAIT TO GET 11:29:57 POEPLE FILLING THEIR BUCKETS WITH WATER 11:30:14 SOT FROM UK SOLDIER: "WE HAVE THE THREAT OF CHOLERA IN THE REGION..." 11:30:38 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER THAT IS SPRAYING 11:30:48 KIDS PLAYING IN WATER, TAKING A BATH, HAS SOAP IN HAND ************************************************************************************************************ 11:32:04 BAGHDAD CUSTODY 11:32:21 NIGHT FOOTAGE OUTSIDE JAIL? 11:32:33 ZOOM-INTO WINDOW THAT HAS BARS ON THE OUTSIDE 11:32:47 FOOTAGE OF AL-TIKRITI WEARING A HEADRESS, THROUGH A NARROW WINDOW, HE'S SMILING 11:33:20 ANOTHER IRAQI, DRINKING SOMETHING 11:33:25 BACK OF TIKRITI SITTING ON CHAIR 11:33:58 END OF BULLETIN ************************************************************************************************************ 11:34:39 DUBAI TV 11:53:57 NILE TV 12:08:54 MIDDLE EAST FEED 12:09:00 REPLAY SYRIA SPAIN 12:13:58 REPLAY PAKISTAN INDIA 12:16:49 SPORTS CHANGE TAPE **********************************************************************************************************
