Evening Report: Live Video Cross To North Africa – 8:30pm

Evening Report.
Evening Report.

At 8:30pm tonight on Evening Report we cross live to Tunisia in North Africa to talk to New Zealander and foreign correspondent Yasmine Ryan about the ISIS and al Qaeda threat to the region.

Yasmine articles in the Independent (UK) suggest Muammar Gaddafi's soldiers are back in Libya and are fighting under the ISIS flag.

And both ISIS and al Qaeda claim responsibility for the Bardo Museum massacre in Tunisia. Have the two terror organisations merged or is there more to this propaganda offensive? LIVE ON EVENINGREPORT.NZ FROM 8:30pm.

ALSO FROM 7:30pm TONIGHT Gareth Renowden writes on The Age of Sustainable Development..

imageIT IS PROFOUNDLY DEPRESSING to hear pundits and politicians talking about the prospects for economic growth with no reference to either equity or environmental constraints.

In the case of New Zealand a “rock star” economy can apparently develop accompanied by dismaying levels of child poverty, excited expectations of new oil and gas discoveries which spell disaster for the climate, and a burgeoning dairy industry paying scant attention to the environmental consequences of its rapid growth.

Fortunately there are more discerning economists on the world stage for whom economic growth is only welcome when it means an end to poverty and when it fully respects strict environmental limits. VISIT EVENINGREPORT.NZ FROM 7:30pm FOR GARETH'S ANALYSIS.
