2:04 am
posts are always denounced the move accusing police of staging a clue the defense minister said no military action would be taken against them it's the 3rd which. of violent demonstrations around this is accused of rigging last month's election to secure a 4th term. to preserve the new bolivia life itself and democracy i invite the parties that obtain legislative seats in the latest election to dialogue i invite them to an open agenda to debate in order to pacify bolivia. well unrest in the region is not limited to bolivia and brazil chile lions have been raising their voices against economic inequality for over 3 weeks now the protests were triggered by a metro fare hike in santiago that was promptly reversed president sebastian pinera has since announced several concessions but people are demanding he steps down in ecuador protest began when president learned merino lifted state fuel subsidies the
2:05 am
public anger forced him to temporarily relocate the capital indigenous groups who led the demonstrations eventually negotiated a peace deal and in haiti raising rising inflation lack of basic goods and plans to increase fuel taxes drove people onto the streets the months long protest morphed into a broader frustration against government corruption and misuse of loans from venezuela was on his short his political analyst and journalist and he joins us from washington d.c. it's nice to have you with us i was looking for something that may connect all of these protests and they're very different nature country has their own issues but could it be this latin america is the slowest growing region of the world economically north point 2 percent over the next year is that the catalyst for what we're seeing this concern about the economy and of course the inequality the gross from that. ok seems like left in america is some
2:06 am
prior right but we have to take a look and try to be fair in c 8 everything in every contrary is not the same what is happening for example in believe we are already in chile haiti on ran a sale or maybe the coming frog. thing america is looking for to change what is another coming for that in america is inequality socially inequality this by the region is ready of reaching resources roma the. difference between classes are really very be very very bright that very wide so that's why people are starting to express. dissatisfaction what's happening for example. in chile in chile this it to asian address have very stable democracy
2:07 am
on till now and actually consider more they are more on the controversy not in america but right now the people are brought this thing in but brother this continues what is going on there people are looking for changes because they say that their money or their their wealth is not reaching their their they call their people and when it comes to the chinese are we going to see a shift more broadly from the raj to the list we see in the bronze comeback in argentina we know have in brazil for instance lula being released he can't stand for all this big clue that he's going to be involved politically how do you see that playing out and the challenges to john bolton or of his popularity has been on the line there. well actually what's happening maybe in brazil or in argentina or maybe in chile or have. a common factor which is it was their right to assume power and now people are looking for
2:08 am
a change and maybe it's going to be their left right now and she. brasil. is out of prison and i have maybe he's will he will try to influence politically the future of brasil ok that could be a common frog there but what's happening right now in bolivia is a quandary because he. is able more alice who is a leftist live there and now actually they brought this on 3 steve either because they want to call for their electoral process because they are calling for this is what they consider a fraud what's happening with the elections and the reelection of abel morales in bolivia as you saw very very different and sometimes those those outcomes be very contradictory but if we could also try and i suppose extrapolate from the other
2:09 am
parts of the region as well what we've seen is a protest movement that's been largely leaderless they are calling for a political giant it began because of frustration about the economy and about inequality we've seen sebastian pinera offer concessions and yet those concessions have been rejected how do you see the leadership in all of these countries responding to these protests and do the protesters ultimately know what they want. well actually for example in chile the people they want a change in the other congress in the region because of the economic situation their point is that sometimes the leaders in this go on to raise are very very high and they they provide or they try to provide a solution when they still 8 and right now people they want to see changes immediately especially because if we. if we take
2:10 am
a look at for example in chile there is a lot of junk people they want to see a future and they don't see that in that's why they they put pressure in order there to try to make a change in the political situation who translates into social order improvement in their lives but this is a call mana fog in whole let in america this by in venice where love this situation is. it's been there for a long long time and actually some people they say maybe been a swell asked their heads in all this brought this in on this conference maybe maybe there are some problems there are deep rooted in every country in latin america economic and social so the short it's a pleasure to have you on the program but you again thank you. well it's plenty more ahead on the news hour including the u.n.

2:14 am
carried out by a government allied to warlord police of after the draft report declined to name the country but allies include the u.a.e. and egypt the attack in july of the capital tripoli killed more than 50 people and injured more than 130 others mark whitaker why has more now from turkey. concerning the deadly air strike which killed 53 migrants and injured another 130 back in july the u.n. panel of experts says that it's probably the airstrike was carried out by a fighter jet operated by a government supporting have and also the chief of the u.n. him. rights says that it could mount a war crime we know that the panel has not named the country accused of carrying that airstrike but it says that it reserves the identification of the
2:15 am
member state until it gathers more evidence but yet we know that back in july the interior minister at the u. and the government of national called in tripoli. the panel has named a number of countries including the united arab emirates on top of them jordan and sudan the united arab emirates as the panel says has provided have there was an advance an air defense system and also the sedan has deployed a 1000. military individuals in the east of the country and also in a job for. airbase and it's into have deserved of libya also the panel says that have the force that have received training in jordan and turkey has also sent military equipment along with ukraine to libya now we know that the panel says that all these practices are violation of the
2:16 am
embargo on libya and they are so good marty is the founder and director of southern institute that's a tripoli boast think tank he says it's unlikely that this report will have an impact on the conflict in libya in the long run. i think that the injury here is that we're not seeing the massive massive elephant in the room which is that libya could be the example of really where the international community in the system that governs those countries together the multilateral system of the u.n. that was supposed to preserve global peace has actually failed and be broken by the libyan intervention has been broken by the libya contact that we go back to before let's remember that teleprompter sparked this war in the presence of the head of the u.n. kind of turning up a tariff on his 1st trip to libya and he left it in 24 hours without mentioning helicopters name the danger here is that we realize that there was so much support being given to an outlaw to renegade someone that has been charged by the military
2:17 am
courts and the 70 people strictly for the last 4 years and his name cannot really cannot be mentioned by the by the head of the u.n. and i think the danger here is headed by after knows this that he's writing this and if we look at other investigations that have been done what's been revealed in the report is only the tip of iceberg you know really back there is an unknown internationally the national army has been sharing the documentation of this will go on for the last 4 years for sure it's for likes you know and that's on the back but also to intimidate is opponents and send up the same signal he did when he launched that offensive the front the lieutenant's which is that no one can stop me not even the u.n. to intimidate the local opponents libya and the libyan citizens he's the one that makes the u.n. indians are reacting with restraint or supreme court ruling that gave a long disputed piece of land to the majority hindus to build a temple a centuries old mosque at the site in joe was demolished by hindu activists in 9092
2:18 am
that led to riots which killed up to 2000 people muslims have been given an alternate piece of land to build a mosque and so far has more from new delhi. it's a case that has polarized hindus and muslims in india for decades now the supreme court has made its decision on the land dispute with a prayer the. hindu say this piece of land is the birthplace of their date. in december 1992 hindu hardline groups destroyed a mosque that had stood here for more than 400 years the muslim community here insists this is the site of where that mosque should be rebuilt but the court has ordered the creation of a government trust to oversee the construction of a hindu temple instead while awarding to have a land somewhere else to build a mosque in its decision the court said the hindus this claim on the site was on a better footing than the evidence provided by the muslim side prime minister nuri
2:19 am
the more the welcome the word ticked and says it brings a new dawn for india so be it as more mom labor 5 plus one i am today the supreme court has ruled on an important case that has a history of hundreds of years behind it the whole country wished that the matter should be heard in the court on a day to day basis which took place and today the decision is out just regarding heart of one of them in every class every community people of every sect the whole country has accepted the verdict with open heart it reflects on the ancient culture traditions and sense of harmony in india. the muslim community has expressed disappointment. there. but in. this report and all. the core technologies the
2:20 am
site is important to both religions but it's a setback for muslims some of them would have preferred the high court order of 2010 which granted 2 thirds of the land to the hindus and one 3rd of it to muslims . it should have been given to the both they should allow for temple and the mosque that the government has given to the mosque elsewhere and that's wrong the state government has deployed its forces a new terror to ensure security but the situation remains tense this is been an emotional issue for many hindus and muslims the government of nuri the more he has called on both sides to exercise restraint but some minority groups in this country say that they are being marginalized and discriminated against for millions of muslims this decision is likely to reinforce that concern after a war on al jazeera new delhi a corridor between pakistan and india has opened up will let indian 6 cross the

2:26 am
date the commentry out there has been demand has been weaker than expected over the last few months and the expectation is that it will demand the risk. the kingdom hopes to save it bring in enough revenue to fund crown prince mob with been so man's vision 2030 his plan to wean the saudi economy off its reliance on oil he wants around go to be valued at 2 trillion dollars that's a same as microsoft and apple combined but industry experts say that's 2 emissions . and that's very if we make an assumption or one of our trillion dollars. by our estimates on a saudi arabia project. just 2 or 3 years until you know better use them so it
2:27 am

2:29 am
denying that this is the time we talk about it numerous track low oil prices why mitt change regional security credits in terms orders especially considering the fact iran's terror attacks if not even out in. the circumstances are not right . but i think the leadership in several european mirrors that. has come to act and this i think you know process absolutely it started to rain mission 2030 successful there is a real sense of urgency in the indictment and the political leadership right you know. keeping in mind all of those issues that you can visit there and all the potential downsides there is also the fact that this is an incredibly profitable company the most profitable it dwarfs the profits of its of its rivals it can continue to produce oil at a low cost and they guaranteeing a high dividend for the next 5 years is that enough to mitigate those other risks.
2:30 am
you know time will tell i don't want to be overly optimistic there is all these factors really touched on that need to be kept in mind that we need to be very realistic about all of these issues but i also don't want to provided that human grim analysis to me excessively pessimistic you know we are moving towards equalization arm but you know we're not there yes and i think there are at least a possibility of this i.p.o. very successful. wouldn't the saudis of valuing it around 2 trillion dollars analysts are saying it's much less than that might be even in the a treaty and i want to look at what is at stake here for saudi arabia they need this money to be able to to diversify the economy to invest in other areas there are questions about governance and about whether the company will be separate from
2:31 am
the saudi state which is going to remain the single biggest investor what is on the line for saudi and the leadership. well we need to see this within the context of the saudi leadership's inhibitions about moving to kingdom away from its dependency on oil even if the saudi economy is extremely dependent on oil it's of course going to be very challenging to see this diversification out and successfully or appen quickly this is a challenge for countries all over the world that are that the guy had recurrent resources on but no like in saudi arabia it nots and its dependence on economic will there be a very good measure a situation not 100 percent. but for countries throughout the cold but well beyond into africa if there were some sort of crashed. down the road there would be very
