now cuba's government is defending a controversial new to crave it tightens control on musicians and artists. decree three four nine as it's being called gives the government inspectors the right to shut down exhibits and performances which are out of violate people's revolutionary values it also requires artists to be registered to provide services in public and private spaces but whereas before this was only the case in public spaces artists and musicians say the move amounts to censorship and will stifle creativity. well now controversial museum dedicated to exploring belgium's colonial past is reopening after a multi-million dollar revamp but event is being overshadowed by demands from its
former colonies to return artifacts they say was stolen under belgian rule that has more from brussels. for more than a century this opulent museum outside brussels was a symbol of belgium's colonial past it was created by king leopold the second with wealth amassed from his kingdom's plunder of congo its exhibits portrayed africans as savage and primitive hundreds of congolese people were put on display in a human zoo but there was no mention of the fact that millions of people were enslaved or killed by their oppresses us until twenty years ago belgium didn't have any critical reflector ryssdal on your past and nobody really questioned about how did google is really perceive it and if you talk to the release of the period i'm in they'll talk about your profession about the way they were three and so when go to this visit this was the a little star reflecting well maybe the colonials as there wasn't all that good.
king leopold presented belgium's colonise ation of congo as a humanitarian mission but that was far from the brutal reality congolese artist mam panny hopes his work will force people to reflect on history as the author of the priscilla process it is thinking together about the past the present and making sure what happened never happens again and to end stereotypes and colonize the image of central africa with pierre company came to belgium as a refugee from congo in one thousand nine hundred seventy five he's now the country's first black man his son vincent plays for belgians national football team he says the museum could be a cultural bridge or you know from now it is museum would be a different color both congo and belgian would better understand the mistakes made in the future that awaits us. while those behind the reopening of this museum hope that it will help belgians confront their colonial past some critics say it's
a missed opportunity that a greater gesture would have been to return some of the looted artworks objects to congo so not. these are not mere outworks for us they represent our ancestors so if my ancestors are enclosed in that museum frozen in time then they are dead so i don't want to celebrate in this sanatorium perhaps i would visit in the future if we start returning the works state museums across europe have come under increasing pressure from campaign is to return objects taken from africa they say it would address some past injustices but also force people in former colonial powers like belgium to know and confront history that for too long has been ignored. al-jazeera brussels belgium. or belgium isn't the only country honoring african art a new museum is a in senegal to showcase one of the continent's largest art collections there museum of black civilizations is filled with impressive work such as ancient skulls

alone i'm maryam namazie in london you're with al-jazeera also coming up this hour hundreds of people are arrested as ours is against want by gallaudet's protesters this time demanding among americans resignation yemen's hoofy rebels call for the key port city of data to be made into a neutral zone as the peace talks continue in sweden. china warns that there will be strong consequences over the arrest of hallway executive mainline joe on fraud charges. welcome to the program our top story this hour u.s. president donald trump has confirmed that his chief of staff john kelly will leave the white house at the end of the year the retired marine corps general spent sixteen months in the role and was initially brought on board to provide a steady hand to the trump of ministration but he reportedly had
a difficult relationship with the president which continued to which continue to deteriorate in recent months and fueled expectations of his eventual departure. john kelly will be leaving rita but i don't know if i can say retiring but he's a great guy john kelly will be leaving at the end of the here will be announcing who will be taking john's place it might be on an interim basis i'll be announcing that over the next day or two but john will be leaving at the end of the year he's been with me almost two years now as you know between the two positions so. we're probably going to see him in a little while ok emily howell brings us more now on john kelly's time at the white house. we just soiree general kelly crisis may have ended john kelly's time in the west wing down with the four star marine general was brought to the white house to restore order as president rather be here president donald trump
took him from his post just homeland security secretary in july of two thousand and seventeen he replaced the first chief of staff writes priebus thank you think kelly's first order of business was firing communications director anthony scare mucci it on the job for just ten days for disparaging white house officials in a profanity laced interview for a time kelley was described as the adult in the white house reportedly imposing military like discipline on staff and limiting access to the president very well but in october of that same year a botched military mission a new share that left four american soldiers dead cause some to question kelly's judgment kelly attacked a congresswoman who criticized the president's mishandling of a condolence call to one of the widows it stuns me that a member of congress with a listen to a conversation. absolutely stunning but the controversy surrounding rob porter
a top trump aide may have been kelly's biggest fumble kelly defended porter when his ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse so did the president as you probably know he says he's innocent and i think you have to remember that he said first strongly yesterday that he's innocent but the administration was forced to back away when photos of one ex-wife's blackeye surfaced bolstering her claims the case led to questions about how porter given his police record had received security clearances and led to others in the administration including the president's own sudden larger cushion or seeing their top secret clearance revoked other tromp reports surfaced that kelley had referred to trump as an idiot something both men denied other top officials like former secretary of state rex tillerson and former national security advisor h.r. mcmaster were let go after allegedly making similar insults in recent months
kelli's tenure has been marked with reports of fights including reported shouting match with national security adviser john bolton as well as disagreements with first lady a lani a trump. kelly is the latest in a long list of high profile departures can really help al jazeera the white house well i spoke to bill schneider a political analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university and tell me what might lie ahead for kenny's replacement. well a lot of people say he's getting out while the getting is good things can only get worse from here is likely to be trouble when we get more reports from the mueller investigation and i think we're getting very very close to the point where muller is likely to come out and make specific charges there is already a charge that's out there from michael cohen and that is that donald trump orchestrated the payments to two women who were going to spoil his campaign by charging him with sexual abuse payments were made to them and michael cohen who
made the payments said they were done with the full knowledge of candidate donald trump there are rumors that he is going to choose another military figure someone who has experience. possibly someone connected to vice president pence it doesn't matter it's an impossible job for anybody to do military person comes in of course with a semblance of discipline because that's what the military is all about but the top was never in the military he is a very undisciplined individual he doesn't read he cares up everything that comes across as desk it's a very difficult position to manage so while the new chief of staff is likely to be a person who advertises his discipline and his command disciplining donald trump is not easy well one of the people leaving a trumpet ministration his nikki haley the seem to be full my u.s. ambassador to the united nations she's been speaking about the u.s.
response to the killing of saudi jenna's jamal khashoggi shavar chancy joins us live from washington now and chad what's he been saying. well the section on jamal khashoggi begins with her saying everything's not black and white and that is a rather good description for the rest of the section on jamal khashoggi she says on the one hand the whole situation because with the show gears we call and give them a pos we comes the saudi government doesn't get a pass we can't condone it we can have a support thuggish behavior but in that same answer she ends with but you know what that country is a complete partner when it comes to fighting iran and our only real partner when it comes to fighting iran so it's a balancing act but you have to do both so she tossed by the interviewer the freedmen dot com and friedman as i said in the last hour do you think you can speak out and at the same time maintain them as an ally she says well we have to they don't expect us to give them
a pass that's why we've sanctions the dozen or so we need to get we're going to push we need to continue to do it until we get it i should add i'm truncating her sentences but i'm just using her own words i'm not embellishing it in any way so the answer to them says all right then is there anything that you want to be done in response to the shoji that hasn't been done hayley i think they need to hold these people accountable that suggests the same dozen people she was just referring to they need to hold these people accountable again the interview perhaps sensing that some generalization generalizations here she also he also direct question do you feel there's more to do to hold the crown prince accountable if he was involved in this talk haley i think all of that the administration needs to decide it's his government his government did this and so he is technically responsible technically responsible is how she describes it and yet as we've heard from so many senators
are having been briefed by the cia they say that the cia says moment when someone has moved them technically responsible he is simply responsible according to the cia's best assessment thank you very much you have a chance even though the latest on that story from washington. french interior minister says the yellow vest protests are now under control but police levels could remain as they are until sunday thousands of protesters right across the country and a fourth weekend of demonstrations which began as a movement against fuel tanks that have now become a challenge to the presidency of emanuel macron david chase reports from paris. her. how the the what the yellow vests called act full right there protests played out with some familiar scenes in the center
paris. hundreds of arrests were made but it didn't stop the clashes the demonstrators tried to storm the blockades mounted by the riot police. service that is now because of her research on moving in on the other best protesters who throwing missiles at the police light they're now using tear gas tear gas and stun grenades stuff. the we did the first act migrant didn't the tourist act too he cannot ask we don't exist today we do ask for to see if he reacts they don't hear the word dignity is it just dignity is the only reward the dignity of making a living out of our work. how the people going to keep feeding their children that's all so i want to know what are we going to give to them by the end of the
month what. the shouts coming from the crowds the car. from resigned the interior minister had his own message for the yellow vests even if it was delivered a safe distance from the fray to syria i see the british also they have actually been more injuries on the side of the security forces than on this. to the protesters because the idea is to contain things but the toxic has its limits when we're faced with people who want to behave like it's. as night fell a street full of luxury boutiques that would normally have been full of christmas shoppers was still shrouded in clouds of tear gas. but the prime minister decided it was time to strike a more conciliatory tone with the protesters and open a dialogue so if you look at the dialogue has begun and it must continue no tax is important enough to threaten national unity we must continue to talk about its president macron faces the biggest challenge the show will go on unless he abandons
some of his most treasured reforms david chaytor al-jazeera paris was much more study about on the program seven months on from the velvet revolution that brought down the government armenians are preparing to head to the polls and will report on zimbabwe's struggling health system that adult to strike and growing cholera problem. and i were going to get feels very summery that in victoria in fact even south australia's crowds is continuing to stream might suggest a frontal system was already gone through had an effect in melbourne but you still got a continuing effect despite the light normally breezes a mere twenty degrees on so it's rather better now late but not that much better in sydney or indeed in brisbane in fact you could argue the purses are in the better
