students joining the protests i don't want any of that injuries to happen critics argue the change in the law could be used to extradite opponents of beijing to the mainland where they could face summary trial in china's courts why they're yellow. was that lamb insists the change in the law is needed her opponents are angry that the initiative is only suspended and not withdrawn altogether. say you know you go on carry lamb says she will stop stabbing and i say that she's refused to take out the knife and we know if she pushes the knife further she will pierce the heart of the hong kong people. they accuse lamb of being a puppet of the central government in beijing but china insists that hong kong matters are a purely chinese internal affair and not for outsiders to interfere in and lamb has its full support pro-democracy groups have called for her to quit especially
6:01 am
because she has sided with the police whom they accuse of using excessive force to disperse crowds they have called for even more people to protest on sunday. than will be hoping the suspension of the controversial bill will reduce the level of anger and numbers of protesters we were dot the most sincere and humble attitude will just sap criticisms and make improvements so that we can continue to connect with the people of hong kong but many here believe kerry lam is only backing down now because she's afraid of more violence and they say if a 1000000 people in the streets can't change her mind they have little faith in the consultation process she is now promising rob mcbride al jazeera hong kong. and out here scott hyde looks back at previous protests in hong kong and why many say these ones are different. in 1997 when hong
6:02 am
kong was handed over from british control to china agreements were made certain liberties were to stay until 2047 like freedom of speech and an independent judiciary. but under president xi jinping beijing has rapidly exerted more mainland power over hong kong a move to change the electoral system in 2014 brought thousands of students onto the streets and what became known as the umbrella movement they occupied central hong kong for 11 weeks in leicestershire was one of the leaders and several of his fellow leaders are serving prison sentences if you go to just them and he's now an assistant to a pro-democracy member of the legislative council with widespread public opposition to the government's push for a new law allowing extradition to mainland china he says the current protests are very different to what happened 5 years ago when we had the umbrella of man and
6:03 am
it's. some random circumstance but. hong kong people. to come out and protest people are more prepared and the time meant than ever in annie's sankoh born history something here in hong kong universe that you won't see anywhere on mainland china a memorial of the massacre in tiananmen square in fact the largest gathering of people in hong kong before these recent protests took place just after that massacre 30 years ago this month. kind of did point out that there historically hong kong is known as a city of protesters but many say this latest round has a specific goal blocking the extradition bill in this case even though the opposition to the extradition that was about much more than just the l m that is the clear target in many ways so i think what's happening now is a little more focused. many here say the umbrella movement failed in its drive to
6:04 am
push back against greater control by beijing with protesters preparing for sunday's new march against extradition many are determined this time things will be different it's got harder al-jazeera on code. which will never allow it is the former head of political section at the british embassy in beijing and he's with me now in the studio thanks so much for coming in to the program how likely do you think it is that china was involved in carrying arms decision to suspend the process because not decision came as something of surprise didn't it i think it's entirely possible it's very hard to to to give probabilities and the government house seems to operate in a bit of a black box but it's unlikely the car alarm would have backed down without at least informing beijing and advance that intended to do so and the fact that beijing came out so fast to say that it stood by her decision suggests a must have been some kind of previous consultation what do you think her future might be though she does look a little humiliated right now presumably the chinese again we're very frustrated by
6:05 am
what is what is happening they're going to be frustrated it's quite clear the hong kong people are frustrated with her she doesn't seem to have any friends just now was a future like probably not great what about the bill itself it's been suspended it hasn't been withdrawn completely that's why we're talking about these mass protests that are being planned again for this sunday is the bill going to go ahead it will it will it die a quiet death or will they try and bring it back when these protests die down i think that will depend a lot on what happens tomorrow sunday the big protest planned as you say i think that car alarm stay. and the said that she intends to bring the the bill back at some point you seem to be very careful not to put timelines on this but i think too that if the protests tomorrow are really big and if the demands that the bill is scraps suspended grow in strength then it might actually be scrapped behind all this of course there's the question of taiwan now remember that the bill came in
6:06 am
originally because of a murder case involving taiwan but the tommies authorities have said that they want nothing to do with this they have the most for the bill a tall and present sign one of taiwan has condemned the bill and supports the protesters now anything to do with taiwan is neuralgic in beijing and when president simon said that if this is what one country 2 systems looks like in hong kong then taiwan certain don't doesn't want anything of the sort that will have sent tremors down spines in beijing and i suspect that would have been a big factor in the back down or the other problem for beijing and carry on by association i guess is the fact that if they're seen to effectively give in to these protests on that the bill does get scrapped entirely it could therefore encourage other people to come out in protest against other things that they're not entirely happy about and that's the last thing the beijing is going to see it go yes that's right beijing doesn't have any good options right now even backing down of course the public has outlined it moving forward it risks yet further unrest in
6:07 am
hong kong and beijing hates unrest remember that in china the must a servant says with alarming frequency and these frighten the communist party their friends into i think or the possibility that the honest and hong kong might spread to liver it's great to have you with us with your analysis thank you. now the own group al shabaab has claimed responsibility for a series of attacks in kenya and somalia has detonated a car bomb close to the presidential palace in somalia's capital mogadishu killing at least 9 people and injuring 25 others another car bomb near a checkpoint leading to the airport killed the driver and his accomplice. at least 6 kenyan police officers have been killed after a roadside bomb hit their vehicle in one county near kenya's border with somalia 6 of the offices of missing gunfire was reported during the attack al-shabaab has carried out several assaults in the area and kidnapped 3 policeman in northeastern

6:09 am
son were among the last migrants to enter peru using their national id cards. i don't need another one coming up i thought up it was difficult to cross and to peru because i don't have a passport in venezuela the process is very slow it was also very difficult to get authorization for my son so getting a passport and a visa is almost impossible our relatives came here looking for a better life and to help our ballots have swear in venezuela my husband is already in peru waiting for us brothers are in lima my whole family is here waiting for him to speak now to regina della patea who's a communications officer with the un's refugee agency and she joins us by skype from peru's border with ecuador that's of course where venezuela migrants are being processed thanks for being with us on the program what have you been seeing happening at the border with peru as that deadline approaches. we as we have been seeing growing numbers of people still coming in we see extreme
6:10 am
vulnerabilities in comparison to other months we are seeing many children arriving we see pregnant women would see elderly 1 leave would see people with disabilities who continue to go arrive even after the humanitarian be set came into effect and they they are extremely vulnerable in the sense that they have been walking for thousands of kilometers many have not eaten in days their day hydrated and they need medical support and all the guessing that support and know the u.n.h.c.r. has been supporting people at border but how desperate is the situation well 1 we received yesterday over 821-0000 people and we have currently a humanitarian response on the wound we are supporting together with other humanitarian agencies in order to provide them with medical assistance we are there
6:11 am
with the federation of the red cross and the peruvian red cross providing medical assistance and just in terms of this is assistance we've seen it. girls 3 times as much as we had before so we aren't raising the teams we are growing the teams in order to provide more support but the reality is we are not reaching the minority of the people and not not even the ones with to have the extreme vulnerability so we really need to continue and we need more support through says these new migration requirements will make migration safer and walter nice for the band as whalen's wanting to enter peru but do you think the reality is that many of them trying to apply for those visas will actually now be denied. what we're seeing is that they should military in these areas good protection mechanism it provides them with access to basic rights and services however our concern is that many people don't have the documents required to obtain this visa so for example they have
6:12 am
a prior passport and currently we know that children meaning you don't have access to passports don't have ask for it's so this is also maybe a reason why their children are arriving in such high numbers over the last days because they they might fear that they won't get a humanitarian visa even though they have been some explanations regarding this but this provided it this led to some parents wanting to bring their child children over as quickly as possible the fight but peru has instigated these new rules is there a fear that other countries such as colombia and ecuador who are which are you know even closer to venezuela is there a sense that possibly those countries might also decide that they need to stem the 1st migrants and also introduce new visa requirements. well what we have been seeing up until now is great solidarity for from latin america with in a certain people we have seen them join and work on a regional level to find
6:13 am
a regional solution to the regional situation and we have been seeing them fixable in some measures so for example they are they they are accepting passports or which have expired because they knew that getting a passport was difficult so up until now we have been seeing a joint intent of helping medicine and speech safety and finding positive solutions we are seeing also for example in colombia a registration mechanism that provides them with regular way to regularize or bans so for us the main thing is that they provide that protection to those in need of international protection and up until now the asylum process has remained open rejoined. joining us there thanks very much indeed for your time talking to us thank you. now rapid gentrification is driving up property prices in mexico city
6:14 am
every year thousands of residents a forced to me because of the increasing cost of living but in the city's historic center one community is fighting back as manuel reports. mexico's capital is one of the most expensive cities in latin america at least when it comes to the cost of building a house with little public housing investments those rising costs are displacing many of the city's longstanding residents as old buildings give way to fancy apartments. perhaps no case is more emblematic of the fight against gentrification than get fit davy located in the heart of mexico city's historic center the building housing the cafe was recently bought out steele says the new owners want to close his restaurant and he picked the residents who live upstairs. we don't want travel to suffer the same fate as other businesses cafes restaurants and bars that carry the tradition of downtown mexico city but have been lost to

6:16 am
of the. gentrification is just another part of the economic process but it can be mitigated and it can be reduced in order to avoid the massive exit of the population experts say it's the booming economy that's behind this wave of displacement in many of mexico city's so-called up and coming neighborhoods every year however this amounts to an estimated 2000 of the city's residents being evicted from their homes. residents of the davie building have managed to avoid eviction while a lawsuit against the building's new owners is pending the outcome of this case could set the tone for the future of mexico's most historic neighborhood went up in new. mexico city. there is plenty more sort of calm on this news hour including a filipino fisherman caught up in the maritime disputes and golfing the south china sea. first female president sworn in vowing to tackle corruption and champion justice out of the plaza of an investigative journalist. on
