the the end of the discussion. there should be ok let's see well if wrong in this case why the is no evidence or why the evidence isn't but make sure that doesn't happen. building more barricades protesters refuse to back off the police one hong kong is on the brink of a breakdown. in jordan this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up the new face of bolivian leadership opposition senator the class itself the interim president. 'd but to indigenous people even morales is still the hero they found to push for his return. and calls to ban the use of rubber bullets
and pellets on protesters as dozens of blinded by being shot in the face. in hong kong automaton commuters for a 3rd day demonstrators are blocking major roads in the city trying to shut down train stations have also set up barricades at the chinese university the scene of violent protests a day earlier what tension has been a police shot the demonstrators close range on monday difficult pollin joins us live now from hong kong just tell us where you are now and what's been happening there with the protests. turned i mean that hard to pull out hong kong's financial district this area is called central and there's been a call out to office workers the 3rd consecutive day this is happening the call out to the office workers to join a flash mob to support the protest. there's now what's interesting about what's
happened is we are seeing hundreds of office workers as you can see who are here were chanting the popular slogans of protestors but what's also happening is that the more radical protesters have somewhat coven intervened in those protests that set up blockades around the financial center and of also started vandalizing chinese own businesses so business is owned by mainland china and if if you'll pan that way what you'll see is a lot of people looking at broken windows at one of the major banks banks or this is a chinese bank now central is the heart of hong kong's financial mechanism the stock exchanges here all the multinational headquarters are here luxury shops usually this area is a place of business of full of tourists what i also want to point out that is different this time is the fact that the firefighters have been called instead of the riot police to try and quell or calm down the more radical elements of the
protest as you can see they're walking right behind me and this is because the firefighters have huge support from the protesters whenever they come in or whenever the trucks come in all the protesters always applaud them so looks like the government is also changing its tactic in trying to calm down these protesters by bringing in the firefighters to try and maintain law and order instead of the riot police in there been clashing against 4 consecutive days now darran and divot what's been the response then to the week day escalation of these protests. well the protesters had said they would do this and they have managed to do this for 3 days now what's interesting while you know a lot of commuters a lot of every day hong kong people have been severely inconvenienced by these weekday protests many of them are not really complaining about it vocally loudly are making any large statements about it instead trying to get. around them. the
government meanwhile has given a press conference saying that they're confident they can handle the violence and these protests and the protestors aren't good to get what they want by doing this kind of an action so it seems that the protesters are still standing strong saying that they're going to continue what they've been doing and in fact as believing things over a week dixon not just weekends and the government is saying that that but there's there was fully supporting hong kong's police which is not going to go down well with protesters all right a difficult part and in hong kong did it thank you know a suicide bomb in kabul has killed at least 7 people the interior ministry was targeted it happened a day after a prisoner swap deal no one has yet claimed responsibility for the tough as been a suspected suicide bombing outside a police station in the indonesian city of medan only the bomber was killed in the attack and one officer was injured police stations have been a frequent target of attacks in indonesia. the opposition leader and bolivia's

with or without the members of the mass party the party that you don't do it all more or less and his political allies now if he's an years has said that she would immediately call for elections there needs to be that they need to name a new electoral tribunal and hold elections around of around december the 20th to be able to have a new president. by january 22nd but in the meantime a lot of frustration and a lot of people are followers of in what i list who are not happy with this decision who are not happy with this naming of the interim president and there's people protesting in the area with police repressing this with water cannons water trucks 2 and 6 and riot police all around this area and supporters of ousted president as are expressing outrage that describing
a coup and accuse right wing groups of having racist intentions stories about reports from i'm wrong a stronghold in the city of for. the past few days have not been easy for people who don't believe us 1st indigenous leaders even want alice was forced to resign when the organization of american states or only s. and now straught had been committed in the presidential election. the military requested that he step down he supporters denounce it is a call. for running wanka more dallas was the man that gave them dignity after years of discrimination. in these years we have seen change we have seen our lives get better i am young but i've seen how indigenous people have suffered in this country now these racists the ones that burn our flag want to shut us down people who rang because everyone else opponents burned their woodpile a flag which represents indigenous communities here there are roadblocks everywhere
these days as morally supporters vowed to continue the push for his return from mexico there's been chaos since he stepped down forcing the police to request the help of the army to restore order in the city the sight of fighter jets flying overhead is making people even more furious. people are. having. that much. more civil. and interim president as anyone yes was sworn in by bolivia's opposition on tuesday in an attempt to fill the power vacuum her supporters celebrated her designation. the winner who we are facing a presidential succession brought on by the vacancy of the presidency and the absence of the president according to the constitution as president of the senate i
immediately assumed the presidency of the state and i promised to take all of the measures necessary to pacify the country but the assembly meeting happened without the presence of ever more or less movement or socialism party congresswoman assume that disperses they will not cooperate with those who carried out a call does anyone i'm a little. we are not of that. family because we are not giving cardroom and we want to recognize her as a president the florist our own senators to escape and step down. was even though more dallas is accused of fraud and violating the constitution people will see him as the man who changed bolivia for good many are dreading their return of the racism they faced in the past and that's why many say he's resignation hurts them even more. and. well forced out of his country by the military morale as his having to make
a political comeback from mexico after his arrival day of peace back home john heilemann has more on the. level morale as woke up on sunday he was still the president of bolivia. by midday tuesday he was out of power and the next so touching down in mexico he said things could have been worse. i want to tell you we're extremely grateful because the mix can president has saved my life. it wasn't easy getting him here the mets can foreign minister described the tense standoff before he could work out a route for him to leave the country we're going to see he wanted to see but there were even the supporters surrounding the airport and the armed forces within it and there was a period of real tension in the morale as was already on board the plane it was the worst moment as. president morales said that a coup pushed him out on sunday the army had asked him to resign he was blameless
he indicated. 'd to the world my only crime is that evil is indigenous the only sin we've committed as social programs for the poor and always searching for equality and justice. he would deny that you must have the extreme poverty brought economic prosperity and stability to the country during his time in power. but his opponents point to a growing authoritarianism and then serious irregularities in the last election he went against the constitution to run in the 1st place so it's a complex situation here for a president over nearly 40 years due to a lot especially for the poor and vulnerable in bolivia before he disappeared from view he made a call for peace in his homeland. finally i'd like to say for the not to be any more bloodshed more confrontations we've decided to resign for the people.
if i make it as he was a minute while i have life we will stay in politics while i have life the fight will continue and we sure that the people of the world have all the right to free themselves. that wish is going on and sit in bolivia where despite his absence his supporters and the opposition continue to clash john home and how does either make scarcity. president says his country is facing a grave crisis as a national strike brought many regions to a standstill sebastian pinera has called on police reservists to help security forces manage antigovernment protests thousands of people marched in the capital santiago as the country's currency the peso hit and historic low protests began weeks ago when increase in metro fares but have grown into anger over social inequality and accusations of police brutality against demonstrators in chile are being investigated dozens of protesters have complained of being shot in the face
