saying barry as he wouldn't be wise to rely on whatever support there may appear to be reg now i think that's right my other concern are the paramilitary organizations that are supported by the venezuelan government that have been going into communities and neighborhoods and have engaged in summary executions of protesters so one needs to look at the the formal military complex within venezuela but my other concern and the other areas that we need to focus on are the informal networks of paramilitary organizations that are also supported supporting the duro and on which he is also relying we've also heard from why don't have them we about the alleged all position. arrests is this something you think we might see more off. i think undoubtedly we will
this is not unprecedented in venezuela this is happened every time there have been protests that have arisen in the country over the past few years and obviously probably one of the poster child or main examples of this is leopoldo lopez who was arrested and placed in jail a major leader of the opposition and obviously this is an effort by the majority him to silence the opposition so this statistics that i've seen show that this is on the rise and i would expect. the interim president quite always embolden them to powered through support from other latin american countries the u.s. canada and europe that the this crackdown will advance and obviously maduro does have the support of countries like russia and china and and and cuba syria hezbollah so that that's a real concern as well but i think this is something that is likely to continue.
them and they're joining me live from washington d.c. thank you very much for sharing your point of view thank you. coming up on this news hour from london how the hunger for bread is shooting me on based in sudan over president obama shares thirty year. this is france sees more protests this time against again invest in demonstrations and not the government. an end to a dream final the world's two that seven teams clash in new zealand team so we'll have all the action coming up later in school. to the explosions in a catholic cathedral in the southern philippines that killed at least twenty people and injured many more i saw his claimed responsibility for the sunday mass attacks on the gentleman at the moose the my end of hotel well the past happened six days. it's a part of the mindanao region voted for autonomy in
a referendum genuine dogan reports. the first blast was inside the cathedral as worshipers celebrated sunday mass that was followed by a second explosion in the car park a security forces were arriving there trying to disrupt the peace process they're trying to destabilize it it's like like for men things of this time is asian and to show that the government will not be able to control the area that the the places that the various conflict the attack in the capital of sulu province comes six days after a referendum on them in the now region voters in the muslim dominated region overwhelmingly approved a deal for more self rule eighty five percent of voters backed an agreement between muslim fighters and government leaders in manila for a self administered area in mindanao which will be named bounce
a model there are attempts to stalk up of communal conflict but the thing is that so far none of these attacks on the churches have resulted in such type of hatred between muslims and christians. the predominantly catholic philippines has been plagued by decades of separatist conflict in mindanao more than one hundred thousand people have been killed and millions more in displaced in the decades long conflict in mindanao and despite the reconsideration process attacks like this show that armed groups still pose a threat to peace in the region dogon al jazeera manila. people have been back out protesting against the government in sudan they marched on the capital against rising prices and demanding an end to the thirty year rule president bashir at a press conference in cairo where he's been holding talks with his egyptian counterpart the shared knowledge the ongoing on west but accuse the media of exaggerating the
size of the protests will be daily you do. there is a problem in sudan we cannot claim that we don't have a problem but some media take it out of size and dimension what it is an attempt to close is being called the arab spring in sudan it has the same slogans programmes and requests but it also has the same use of social media however the sudanese people have learned the lesson they have seen what happened in some of the states that went through the so-called arab spring and its negative implications of god willing the sudanese people are very alert and will not fall into anyone's trying to destabilize sudan well it's bashir second trip abroad since the protests erupted almost six weeks ago they were triggered by bread shortages but the demands for economic reform and political change have grown ever since as mohamed fall reports now from khartoum. freedom peace justice and the overthrow of president bashir are the main slogans being chanted by
these so the knees protesters but at the root of the demonstrations are demands for basic life necessities but old stations ran out of fuel inflation rates soared bank coffers were empty people stopped deposing money with banks and those who did face limits on how much cash they could withdraw most dangerously bakeries ran out of floor of all the other needs bread can be seen as the main symbol of the crisis are burst the dimmer was a journalist during the one nine hundred seventy s. at the time of former president. his life now may symbolize the slow descent of sudan from relative ease to utter this to jewish and. everything was much better now mary was a strong leader we had culture to certainly span was equal to four dollars but now it's crisis everywhere and people have nothing to eat we don't want to know. the
origin of that crisis the sudanese government agrees was a shift the country made from agriculture to oil during the one nine hundred ninety s. the hostile and i mean some of the model who indeed it's called the dutch disease when easy only revenues shift attention away from traditional resources such as farming we've had it in sudan but now we are addressing the problem through new strategies and more focus on agriculture. in two thousand and ten sudan exported nearly half a million barrels of oil a day but a year later south sudan gained independence and took most of the oil fields with it by then the agricultural sector was already suffering from neglect and there was another shift happening. in the past sudanese households relied mainly on sorghum for food and those things changed when the british and i in our governments wrote wheat preparing sorghum is towards the mint takes time you know we have to take it to the mills to grind it then you need
a long process to cook it with bread on the other hand is handy all you need is to go and buy it ready from the bakery and then without more of the hard now then as i was a month. wheat bread now accounts for two thirds of regular meals and so that. just to give you an idea about how much bread an average family of five individuals in sudan need for the daily meals each individual they tell me here needs six pieces of bread if i try to put all the quantity they need in my hands. it's not possible this is just the shell of two people. the crisis got worse when sudan couldn't grow or buy enough wheat saudia and r.t. companies grow millions of tons of wheat here on least or purchased land but they send it out of the country now sudan with its over two million hectares of fertile soil that even oil and the gigantic underground lake the newbie in basin is begging
for outside help to satisfy its demand of wheat to feed the hungry population of nearly forty million. just to say it's too late to come these cards whole bread will overthrow this regime as it happened before here in sudan. i. see a sense of his words is a code by these protesters david champs. mohammed via. khartoum. thousands of people are once again protesting on the streets of the french capital but this time the demonstration is against the ghetto rest movement which has been rallying against president back home their opponents have joined together to call for an end to the violence threats and verbal abuse which they say characterized the recent protests attash about reports now from paris. a new citizens movement in france created online and now on the streets of paris they call themselves the red scarves and they say they're fighting back against months of finance and disruption
by yellow fest protesters thousands marched through the city to demand an end to the yellow vest blockades and demonstrations the aged unity and respect for fraudsters democracy and institutions calling up or drink alone i see we are here to so i know there are laws in france and in europe i should be respected and the violence must stop and this detestable image of front scrape or minority of people . of course demonstration is right i appreciate the right of the most special will demonstrate. it does not i would say justify violence some people here say they used to support the yellow vests and many share their concerns over the rising cost of living but they say the weekly scenes of unrest are too much on saturday police and yellow vests demonstrators clashed again in several cities across france since the movement began in november eleven people have been killed
dozens injured. as the red scarves reached by steal a symbol of the french revolution the divisions between the two movements was clear behind those results. larry gestures when they stopped here in the past and. not the on the steps of your house or yellow vests protestors and it's something of a standoff with both sides taking each of the see the right if the movement was really against violence than most yellow vests would have proved were not for violence obviously but listening to their slogans and when you look at them it seems more like a pro micromanaged to me emanuel mark karr has been promoting his national debate initiative aimed at quelling the yellow vests demonstrations by giving people more of a say in the way that france is run opinion polls suggest the french president is regaining some popularity of to months of low ratings micro hasn't commented on the red scarf
movement but he might hope it is a sign that the tide is turning in his favor. al-jazeera paris. a mirror by the british artist banksy on a door at the back to clown theatre in paris has been stolen ninety people were killed at the concert hall and an attack in twenty fifteen pay digs showed a young girl mourning the loss of life the battle plan has released a statement expressing deep indignation at the theft people in the northern irish city of london there have been marching to remember bloody sunday when british troops killed fourteen unarmed civilians it happened in one nine hundred seventy two at the height of the troubles a conflict between most catholics irish nationalists or republicans against poor mostly protestant unionists on the march comes a week after suspected dissident republicans detonated a bomb in london dairy catherine stansell reports. there was a shot fired and i heard it very clearly the acts of violence are seared and burned
into mccalla skewes memory one thousand nine hundred seventy two she was an m.p. addressing a crowd of more than ten thousand people in london derry during a civil rights march that was banned and it took a deadly turn i said don't panic they are firing over our heads. as the word truck coming out of my mouth because i'm standing looking here. i could hear all the shots and i could see a whole march of people whose b.s. is were looking at me beginning to get done like this so the words. of words were coming out of my wife in my brain and was telling me that's not right the killing of civilians by the british army led to a massive ira recruiting drive if you will to three decades of violence during the troubles with nationalist mostly catholic groups wanting an end to british rule against protestants who wanted northern ireland to remain in the u.k.
in twenty ten a british government inquiry into bloody sunday determined that the killings were unjustified an apology was issued but the inquiry never led to prosecutions something the victims and their families are still fighting for this year's march focuses on the role that was played by top british military officials who ordered soldiers to fire on that civil rights march here in one nine hundred seventy two and the people marching here today say they won't rest until those responsible face justice kate and linda nash are two of the organizers of the march their nineteen year old brother william was killed their father alex was injured trying to save him what i want as them to be prosecuted to know that their brat as murderers so that the war and their names are right but i also want the truth. the proper troth of bloody sunday others in derry don't believe
a march is necessary instead victims are quietly remembered at the bloody sunday memorial but the recent spate of dissident ira activity is casting a shadow over the santa verse serie a ghost of the past coming back to life people suffered a lot over those years and certainly i don't want to wait in the future like i have to have grandchildren and certainly i don't want my grandchildren to love to me what i went three. for kate and others they say they'll continue to make their voices heard and i will want that burden. you know laughed. at that gave me a great sense of pace and really what katherine stansell al-jazeera dairy northern ireland. less lots more still to come this hour. afro jazz legend and national hero of our what to curtsey in front of thousands of
