4:22 pm
agreement that's intended to put the nation on the path to civilian rule just 2 months ago dozens of demonstrators were killed in a military crackdown now the 2 sides will have to work together to shape new institutions for a new sudan we'll go to our panel in just a few moments but 1st a bit morgan has more from the signing ceremony incredible. it's taken more than 3 months on and off the talks between the opposition coalition and is the forces of freedom and change and sudan's ruling military didn't put that it was time to put their final signatures on the power sharing agreement which was signed today here in sudan's government somehow till now the agreement states that minutes to leave the ruling what the 1st 21 months of the transitional period while the opposition coalition will be rooting for the remaining 18 months before elections are held but the protesters on the streets are saying that they're cautiously optimistic they're saying that they're the ones who brought about this that this is changing government after toppling out from the president on what it was sheer and that
4:23 pm
they're the ones with. legitimacy to the opposition coalition and that they have been protesting since december 1st a villian ruled so there's thing that they will continue with their revolution although in a different form they're saying now it's time for a political protest and that they will be keeping an eye on both the opposition coalition that represents them and the military council and they're saying that based on the dance track record of implementing power sharing agreements in these deals they have to be very cautious but today they're saying that they're celebrating the fact that a deal has been signed that will eventually lead sudan to civilian rule and until anything happens they are going to enjoy that moment of victory even more going to al-jazeera for inside story the deal is the culmination of a struggle that began in late 2018 mass protests that were initially over austerity measures grew into calls for a change in government in april this year the military overthrew longtime leader ahmed bashir and replaced him with the ruling military council but the protests
4:24 pm
continued demonstrators wanted in the media transition to civilian rule and the dismantling of old institutions on june 3rd the army launched a crackdown one raid on a protest camp left dozens of people dead despite this we go she continued and the deal was reached a transitional government will prepare sudan for a full handover to civilian rule in a little over 3 years time. all right let's bring in our guests with us here in doha i will have an affinity is professor of politics at the institute for graduate studies and author of several books on sudan and khartoum an award winning filmmaker and activist from new york city man baldo is a human rights and democracy activist and senior advisor to the enough project welcome to the program abdul have let me start with you what happens next and how difficult or easy will this process be to get going. yes i think from now on
4:25 pm
maybe the idea that there is a power sharing is not accurate because what is going to happen is that there's going to be a civilian government which will have most of the powers to enact whatever it wants technically or at least theoretically and this government is supported by also a should be in 3 months a list that if council which of which 2 thirds majority is also from the forces of freedom and change so i think we could say already there is a an impending transition to civilian government in the sense the council does not as was said in the introduction room for it to mass it only. it's only a few hacked it does it's the headed by
4:26 pm
a military person a dozen room. and the head of the council doesn't have any. any. supporting vote he's voted like anybody else so in this regard we're going to have generally a civilian government of course many difficulties because the military would be entrenched in and the security forces in the military in the police and they insisted on having control of the ministry of defense and the minister of interior on the security forces. thought i would like or wish to say we should look at the positive side there was an interesting debate in latin america when democritus your wrists were accused of fresh full thinking when they said democracy welcome to life
4:27 pm
in america and one of the leading fielders there he said no way this is not wishful thinking if this is forth for we should. in favor of engaging it for tradition. because the issues of will in the end about how democracy triumphs is not the issue of objective factors but also where if the people are willing and also the politicians or. wise enough and they act in a year to contemporary must show that we will get there. in the sense of their mistake that real the dynamics is going to kill from in the beginning of next months when the new government place over the dynamics in the country will change because now most of this is and will come from the civilian government has what about you are you optimistic this agreement can work. i'm cautious i'm not
4:28 pm
that optimistic the next few days will make me decide what i want i'm excited that we're going to have a prime minister civilian i do agree that this should not be our cherie this should be civilians the beginning of not complete but would really upsets us and what really makes me not that excited not so they're not innocent operational today is that humidity and growth for us should be in a courtroom and should be in. not not needers on the council so that's my main problem can saddam move forward can we reach peace can we reach. overcome racism marginalize aisha and woman write all those things which committee occupying. the rest of the bix major cities in sudan and all of which is forces the
4:29 pm
rapid response forces which actually committed the. massacre in june 3rd and massacres in dar for him it was part 2 so for us it's like how do you receive justice and justice is the 1st step towards reaching a democracy and after asperin see have accountability the have participation equality and economy and all that can reach. economic stability in sudan knowing that one of the major issues we always had was that 70 percent of the country's resources is being used by the military so can we expect the military to abuse their resources to 10 percent so we can move forward so we have all these questions that we have and to up to me is like seeing committee there signing and and standing behind him. just makes me feel like this is not going to go forward the revolution is to continue and for me though seeing that the only optimism i have is that people there who she marries were out in the street will continue and now that
4:30 pm
we have a legitimate government that the world knows that we are the legitimate government and ones are prime minister takes over power and the executive branch we can move forward but do expect more protests do expect more people going out in the street and asking for more rights we need to get to the point where justice happened and where we can move forward so then on which we're just talking about the fact that one of the things that was bringing him a sense of optimism even though he has mixed feelings one of the things was bring him a sense of optimism is the fact that a prime minister is going to be appointed now this is the economist mohamad abdalla dog who's been nominated by the opposition faction and i want to ask you if you believe that this appointment will proceed as planned or if any complications could show up in the next few days. i don't expect competition. just by a minister he the consensus candidate you have. there but if you have
4:31 pm
a lot of the population in the government the recall of the experts use it brings to say you are not only of the economies but also of their experience in the. across the continents and nobody here has why international. connections. in court and in. sudan's mission shippers international conventions institutions in the. us prime minister he had a fairly high maybe we'll have a real powers the some of somebody or are you know. a sort of figurehead of. it merely a puppet government it's a government of the of power and. the freedom and jenks
4:32 pm
falsies of that. look at the position of the cutting it being an opportunity to has. to be lost and they're far. cautiously optimistic yes because the issues of realty and each use of transparency appear to be a great experience even though the army did up a simple courses are responsible for all the efforts of the crimes that mention a lot of our society and most of them a source of the company. not going to pretty well call their. funds go have if you could pick up on a point that some amount was making when it comes to the accusations of atrocities that have been made against military leaders in sudan like general ham 80. now one of the things that made it difficult putting this agreement together was the issue of whether these military leaders would get immunity was that resolved and if these
4:33 pm
military leaders in this agreement do get immunity is there any way in which that could be revoked i don't think they should for muti the key issue i think yes i agree that this issue of accountability is a paradox because the. the the revolutionaries have decided that they want justice to be a top priority specially the should be a committee which should investigate the massacres we don't need to investigate the massacres we know who committed them and the members who are in the military council. and issue has to be examined i think. there are to more than one issue the issue which had to do rightly pointed out which is there is currently a military occupation of khartoum by a. force that up the deployment forces and.
4:34 pm
raise a. issue of the influence of the military on the government i am ready to trade the influence for the. for the accountability if you move sister oops out of the cities and. lift. the security forces are handed over to civilian government the way for example what happened with peter in. in chile and other governments that you could do. a bargain. always transition transition to democracy needed some kind of spark you have to give something that something of course when you
4:35 pm
get something the dynamics if you have a really civilian government the dynamics of civilian control will in time they get possible for you to engage in the in the justice issue but i have this particularly. if somebody as they said is ok by car talk and you want to try him in that capital of khartoum or you want to you have to have a war in this regard so you have to think about all these things in a very pragmatic positive way how do you get there. one of the problems we had that some of the revolutionaries have been through kind of absolutely and say you have to have everything the government has to give in and leave and then they should come and we put them in prison try them and so and i thought and that should happen by itself and i have always argued that is not going
4:36 pm
to happen that way you have to negotiate now we have the go shoot it at one point reach this particular juncture the question is also we need some more negotiation to pass over the next steps and i think one of the important things is hero there will be many challenges challenges facing the the incoming cabinet and you have to look at not only the issue of justice is not the only thing you have to revive the economy you have to deal with the demands of the people on the street now khartoum is under water at the moment a lot of people have died already and. the government will need to look at this issue and i'm not allowed to but a lot of areas in a jersey area and other parts of the country have been people have died. so we have to look at the need bread people need to feel. you need to
4:37 pm
work on on the economy and it's working out pretty so that challenge i agree with. with the point that we have you have died in this house you heard i go have there speak about the economy from your point of view what are the immediate steps that can be taken to try to turn things around there. well wait come so they qana me i mean the main reason we think the economy's in the state is 2 things one corruption and lack of that villa t 2 managed resources sudan has a lot of resources be it animal agriculture or. material human resources but it's not has not been correctly for a very long time but to me to be able to manage it we have to answer the deeper questions of sudan the biggest issue you have that has always been the creation of sudan the sudanese identity so for us to be able to feel like the whole countries part of this. not just people who are from the center so for us to get the whole
4:38 pm
country together and to get at the population the woman part of this we need to answer what is our identity and to meet to be able to have that question we have to defeat the political islam. political that is. the also in the identity to be just an arab identity for so for me to actually move forward we have to quickly and very decisively answer that question what is it in these identity how do you create an identity that includes all sudan and includes a woman's right to become part of the work force so for me before we do that we're just going to be a reform we're not going to be a revolution for us to have a revolution and this happened in the city this isn't it was very clear that the whole population was behind what was happening in darfur then decide what is happening in nuba mountains and blue nile people actually started to understand
4:39 pm
each other and it made for mation started so for us to continue that and to make it a. sort of having racism as part of what is happening which was happening all game we need to move forward and this is the 1st step to actually improve our economy and everything we need to manage our resources and to do that we need to have a real identity who will act as guarantors for this agreement. well we have all the witnesses who have. the primary goal not a lot of closely because we got the 2 of them the. sisters of the. 2 civilian. control government that momentum flow. between the council and the freedom and forces what's on. your. emotions on the chair of. mission.
4:40 pm
today this is the bend in the international community today that the united nations and the members of security council all we said to leave. my missions of going you know and to lead in the resolution of the problem. and this and. to go to some of. those a lot of the unclear. i hear what have we speaking of the african union the african union of course suspend its or has membership in early june do you think they will reinstate it and when might that be. a no i think they will have they will probably mediately now reinstated because it was conditional on returning to and for the process of 50 and over for democratic. transition. that the families
4:41 pm
actually don't want to live anywhere but i would add that maybe the best got on top is the people themselves i think. the moves we have seen as always being drove out of popular pressure. the transitional council was very adamant for example that council that it didn't want any to make any concessions and actually said it has. abandoned all sides remit is signed in the past when you saw the number of people on the streets. in july they. understood that you can go ahead and that is how. the the unity of the people also the clarity of. of
4:42 pm
vision and and and also there is a. you have to not pushing that is what happened for example in the experiences in egypt and other countries that people have underestimated the enemy and how overstating their own forces. and then they lost so i don't want this to happen that people should focus and should be rebuilt and should look forward not backward this is a very important. support point about the issue of identity i think the issue of ideas although it's important it cannot be as all political is an issue what we can resolve politically is a democratic system which allows people to debate issues of identity i will not issue a decree by the government to say that we are arab or who are not arab and muslim of course that won't work and bad leaders can create i did
4:43 pm
a problem where none exists for example america today donald trump has created a problem of identity although there was in the past 1st an acute problem of identity in that country. so i think our priority should always be democratic governance and good government. i want to ask you there's many people in sudan who believe that the trial of former president bashir may be a sham what do you think. yeah i think i think it is one of the people who think it's a sham one of the people is not just going to be here that they see that it's actually the biggest issue it could even be bigger than the him self. there is not enough people in jails we did not have enough information on who still what why they're not being tried and all that there is one thing within. the treaties
4:44 pm
that were signed and it was the actually the one before the last and that one actually specifically said that people should be tried and even in international courts and to me i really am one of the people who really believes that the right way to try our may be here is actually to try. to pursue a lot of reasons we i don't think we'll have a good enough trial within sudan and part of it is because but i was there and i meet these there and obviously up to now on able to go forward the one good thing also is now when we have civilian government is the trust the real trials can start now that we have people we trust and hopefully the justice system we create is going to be a secure lives read is going to be good enough to actually try the rest of the state and give us our rights and take away put people in prisons and accountability and so we really i don't think trial all those trials were real i think the trials

4:52 pm
a fact richelle we have absolutely to rachel rain about 45 minutes ago that lasted for about half an hour and i say that it's a factor because sas of the sunday rather is all about the numbers all about the numbers that this group can get turning out to victoria park which is behind me we've come to get some cover and also to find a mobile phone signal these mobile phone signals will cost you and your side many people in that park they weren't able to do so from inside but this group organized those 2 huge martins back in june 1 that got a 1000000 people one that got 2000000 they had another that got hoffman on the 1st of july but this is the 1st one organized by this group since and since the 1st of july of course the process that got increasingly violent so sunday this is seen as a test as to whether that main stream hong kong has will still come out in support of the protesters despite the violence that there's been so i say that the weather is a factor because it will be straight to rain put people off now there was no sign of it as far as i could see as people gathered just about an hour or so ago now there
4:53 pm
was certainly hundreds of thousands victoria park the police say has a capacity of about a 100000 people and there were many many many more people than that spilling out and filling the roads around the place and not given permission for people to march from this spot to where they want to go in central in the middle of hong kong but they have marched you might say they're just leaving given the right but they certainly look like they're marching on the wrists well over 100000 people of course what no official numbers until late tonight but this will be a test if they've got half a 1000000 people out say which is what we're going to eyes were saying they were anticipating and that would be a sign that the protesters despite the violence despite the antagonism with the place have still got a lot of support among ordinary you like hong kong is but we'll see that number and of course you mention the potential for violence well again and again we've seen peaceful rallies jur and particularly weekend an increase in the acrimonious increasingly violent as the sun sets and it's not called. on whether the weather
4:54 pm
will make any difference about again rochelle will see lights or so angelus to make it clear for our viewers to the crowd that we're saying that is authorized there is nothing illegal about that but what has not been approved is if they is when they began to march through the city is that correct. that's exactly right richelle the police say that they can't guarantee the security and safety of people as they're marching to the actual meeting in victoria thought that was all authorized that was organized and the the organizers of this was making announcements to the crowd saying please come into the park show the place that you are in much bigger numbers than this part can accommodate because they were very angry that their permission to march of being denied but as you can see now from these large pictures people are marching they are walking and they're already filling 3 suburbs in hong kong island i'm here in the victoria park area but cools way by alongside and then admiralty again all of that area completely full of
4:55 pm
people so certainly the numbers are extremely high how high we'll find out later ok andrew thomas live for us in hong kong thank you andrea that those protests follow large scale rallies both for and against the government that happened on saturday and so to tell him they found out there was a generational divide among those on the street. now how how did they get it under the banner of say phone call to denounce recent violence during protest and to show support for the police here into mar park just to china is clear but there's more than just that the crowd is mostly middle aged or older part of a generation that grew under british colonial rule and want to protect their lifestyle david chu works in the service industry he is one of $200.00 government supporters from to same neighborhood what he called the cellar i absolutely don't accept the months of the protest on the steps not what the general public wants not that the months can be managed they are all nonsense and excuses was the people
4:56 pm
here are calling on the police to uphold the law and order and blame protesters for divison outburst of violence. and we all love hong kong we all part of china will firmly believe that so i don't want this place to be ruined and so i came back and support and do the rally i cannot take any of violent demonstrations that we can see as witnessed by so many young writers you know and that fanfic stating is killing my killing my feeling oppressed who comes harbor in kowloon devious son march with the pro-democracy protesters mostly young people who fear what they perceive as the growing influence of the chinese government in hong kong's affairs they feel their demands are being ignored and frustration is growing it should be said that if i chiefly feel things you respond to i was patient myself terry and i have a lot of emotions. in this society so i think that's why we come out is to
4:57 pm
let's just hope that they can respond to. part of the anger is also to his depletes whom they accuse of using excessive force but the protestors are under pressure for bringing chaos to districts. these divisions. apart between a content with the present and one that is worried about the future but at the. core. thousands of people have been left homeless after a fire swept through a slum and the capital bangladesh and again on friday evening and poor area i fighters put out the fire after several hours he has more from the scene of the fire and. absolutely devastating scene in the slum over $3000.00 family lived there nothing is left even the trees are burned many families actually were in their rural villages for the holidays now they'll be devastated when they come back some
