6:02 pm
a critical level rochus. so intention. or cost well later a number of demonstrators fled the university building some on motorbikes several were arrested but it's not known how many remain inside now large groups of people have been marching to the campus to try to break through the police cordons and free people inside well let's cross now to rob mcbride who is standing by in hong kong give us a sense of what the situation is there right now rob. well stan it has been another crazy how monday evening here in hong kong with running street battles between protesters and police let me just tell you where we are we are in a square that's just a about a couple of blocks away from the university campus now the word went out on social media for people to gather here to protest to be in support of those besieged
6:03 pm
students and thousands of people i would reckon probably points of a 1000 to 2000 people did gather here and it very quickly realized it was going to be a standoff with police and you wouldn't realize this but about 10 minutes ago this was a almost like a battleground this is basically a square and then this leads onto a narrow road that runs through this part of hong kong it's a pretty swish swank. loon they go through a couple of nice hotels here designer stalls and this is about half an hour ago was an absolute battleground with police that want to and with their water cannon and protesters ripping up bricks passing them to the front line also hastily putting together yet more mullets off cocktails little police petrol bombs that they throw police of turned up they fought back and have now taken up positions on bridges around here and they protesters are simply melted away i think they want to many of
6:04 pm
them went off down in this direction we can assume that there will be going off with these hit and run style tactics try to set up a barricade try to block a road in another place all with the intention of trying to stretch police resources as much as they can in the hope at least that they are taking some of the police attention away from the campus maybe allowing some of their fellow protesters who are holed up there giving them a chance at least of trying to break out. all of this of course is meant to be local council elections on sunday how the environment for those to go ahead. well that's right i mean people that are here though do definitely want to lections fall the most part and officially they are still going to to go ahead i mean
6:05 pm
these riots have been getting steadily worse than the levels of violence have been increasing but people generally still want to have these and these elections people are still out campaigning so it doesn't mean to be seeing just just what will happen but as far as the protest movement is concerned i think that there has been an end pact in effect this resilient holdouts by these die hard students in the public technic university was the last campus where students were holding out and resisting and you do get a sense that that is given to an added stimulus to this protest movement and we have been surprised at the numbers of people who come out on this monday evening but also that the kind of people who've been coming out yes you see the people who are out of building the fire bombs and that clad in black and obviously very much
6:06 pm
the hard core of this movement but you do see least were seen on this monday evening a number of a much younger people many of them not with the usual gas masks that students tend to be equipped with just face mask they have been sputtering badly in all of this tear gas but you do get a sense that maybe some of these people it is a kind of a catalyst it's a kind of give them gives them motivation to go out almost like a rallying point for this movement and as long as the students are held out. that rallying point continues. thank you for that broad live there from home call joseph chung is a political activist and a member of a pro-democracy. of course he has my his comments about this as well moving on to georgia now riot police in georgia moving in on protesters need the country's parliament police used water cannon to dispose the demonstrators earlier protested
6:07 pm
to set up barricades around the pollen to prevent m.p.'s from entering and they calling for all the elections off to parliament filed to pass a promise to electoral reform bill robin forest of walker is now joining us live from tbilisi tell us about the situation there that's unfolding in this the security issue 1 1. leading the way with. clearing the streets around the. economy 9. here. organized calling for people to stay right. there just
6:08 pm
a minute ago i still people moving in one direction. seem to think it's going to be different. because i think the opposition 1 has no intention. from. the police. seem very very quickly i think the opposition were hoping that they could. they were going to be pretty sort of along so it seemed they had made a tentative. they would move very very quickly seems like. the police. are trying to clamp down on the situation. the protesters. here. rob and just explain to us again why we have seen these protests and. electoral reform the peoples of being calling for moving from a mixed system i have now to a proportional one what impact would that have and why has there been this
6:09 pm
resistance to it at a political level. right i mean i think. briefly we got to the summer when there were mass rallies against the government and when the opposition was accusing the government of being complicit and of saying to. russia friend they ought to stop russia and russia is saying no sign. many days i've seen. people. actually all sick so i just want to say but i just i don't recognize very seriously what is this people so she said it's a retreat thing it's a tricky little government. the country is not processing the summer and the peace concert. well 'd if you look it was systemic crisis would have been 5 purposeless now let me just say simply if you look what is given them as a group of chunks of control of power here because this government is clean in the
6:10 pm
in. the last 56 years. we. think you can be ok it's a great a challenge i think that represents been following all segments from. yeah we haven't we seem to be losing robin there but we'll move on now to catalonia where the leader kim torah is on trial the boss a lawyer for alleged disobedience tori's accused of ignoring orders from the spanish electoral power to remove a symbol of support for the separatist movement from a government building tension to being high in the region since the jiving of a number of catalan leaders last month one of the i got joins us live now from boss alone now of course toure would say he disobey this because he considered it any legal border it's also considered a mine. what could the consequences but. what the consequences stand really is is that it's more symbolic than anything else the
6:11 pm
maximum penalty that daughter would receive would be just barman. basically being disbarred from public offices for up to 20 months that it's what the prosecution is seeking there as well as a fine of some $32000.00 have been there off but he is if you look at it in this sort of recent spate of of of history here in in catalonia he is the 3rd consecutive regional president to fall and fall of of spanish laws and with that he is putting his name down to that sort of. recent trend of history that there is has been occurring here which is accumulated into this political crisis which is proving to be quite divisive not just in spain but also in catalonia as well now there have been plenty of criticism about kim taught us actions that he
6:12 pm
hasn't really. spent his tenure as president so much as being a unifying force but more as an activist that's the criticism from his detractors there and that he has been really vocal and given a lot of of thought to presenting symbols which have been really in favor of the separatist movement the procession this movement here as well with that he said that he did understand that he was disappearing the laws but when he made a statement in the court on on monday he did state that he could not have gone against his own all the illegal manifestation of taking down those symbols because that would have been a form of say. the ship itself however in spanish that really goes against what the actual governing what neutrality is in the election campaign remembering
6:13 pm
this took place in the lead up to the april general election campaign and of course if you settle this in the bigger picture as well it is still this on going political crisis that there has been between the central government in madrid and the government in catalonia and of course particularly pointed out there's just been a general election the leader of the socialist party pedersen just won the most what votes but still not enough to be able to form a government he will need to rely on the catalan parties to be able to push through some kind of government if he's going to have any success in this and that is going to require not just some favors but also some serious sort of. suggestions as to how they can come from the catalans as to how they can actually resolve this issue so that by they would actually need to spam some kind of dialogue to resolve this. issue so it's. politically it's also would be no credited with driving people to the right and seeing the increased support for the far right
6:14 pm
in spite of his role sonia you covered the the protests that erupted after the jiving of separatist leaders last month. expecting a similar reaction is this enough to ignite people once again. well it's difficult to say but really what was the focus of the those sort of scenes the violence that you saw on the streets was really the wave of anger is that you saw which came from some on one hand from the grassroots movement the c.d.r. known the self-proclaimed committees for the defense of the republic they're very much sort of neighborhood base crosstrees protests who really have come into force since off to the 2017. illegal referendum but also there is this other phenomenon the so-called tsunami democratic which is this leaderless organization all dealt
6:15 pm
with gives its sort of orders as it were on social media networks as well that was also really fundamental in galvanizing people it was responsible for getting people for example to that great huge protest and subsequent riot that took place at the airport in barcelona which then triggered off for a further nights of of violence on the streets here with those interesting late enough to see there has been more of a quiet time and certainly they've since seem to have suspended the more mass protests that we've seen so far but there's no telling to see how really that can develop if there is a stalemate in talks if it seems that there there is another stumbling block who knows what the organization. democratic organization could call for further protests further mass movement which could trigger off yet another crisis so that you know you're joining us live there from barcelona. it's putting more ahead on
6:16 pm
the news including 3 naval ships captured by russia a return to ukraine in a sign of goodwill. a chance to finally grieve how survivors of a massacre in colombia remembering dozens killed 17 years ago. i did support the bron james is on fire for the allies like yours in the n.b.a. . all of that extra. for the u.s. president has tweeted that he may be willing to testify in his impeachment hearings donald trump wrote crazy do nothing speak of the house nervous nancy pelosi who is petrified by her radical left knowing she was soon be gone and suggested on sunday's d. face the nation that i testified about the phony impeachment which aren't she also said i could do it in writing even though i did nothing wrong and don't like giving
6:17 pm
credibility to this no due process hoax i like the idea and willing order to get congress focused again strongly considering where to make sense of this we go to our white house correspondent kimberly how couldn't complete we saw the full range of donald trump on display in that tweet calling it a hoax calling it a witch hunt then also saying that he would maybe potentially testify what do you make of it. well the disrupter in chief has done it again this is a man who campaigned that he wanted to come in and do things differently it's pretty astounding for a sitting president to suggest that he would go and appear as a witness at public hearings on capitol hill that he suggested in there that he would also potentially do it in writing he's left open all the possibilities leaving everyone guessing and once again setting the agenda in the news cycle now this is also astounding for another reason that is because dahl trump went to great
6:18 pm
lengths not to testify publicly in the hearings involving the previous investigation into his presidency whether or not there was collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign of russia when the special counsel robert muller was conducting his probe so the fact of the president now is being much more open potentially willing saying he would consider it is remarkable but what's also remarkable or perhaps not so remarkable in all of this is that donald trump has once again shown he's agitated even as he tries to sound in control he's responding directly to an interview that was given just one day previously by the house speaker nancy pelosi in it she suggested if the president was innocent she he should come forward he should speak all the truth that he wants well his replying directly to that so i am on the one hand this is certainly a president a reality t.v. show star turned president who is trying to keep control of the media narrative but at the same time it's shown that he's a rattled just
6:19 pm
a little bit of this and of course the hearings continue and a lot of focus this week on the ambassador gold someone very close to donald trump some are saying that this could be absolutely crucial to how these ultimately plays out. yeah absolutely crucial because the saarland has since stated that some of his previous testimony he left out some pretty big emissions emissions that were revealed through other witness testimony namely these telephone calls where he was speaking with the president about the investigations for guarding the investigations the us president was hoping to have conducted in ukraine when he spoke with the ukraine president back in july 25th with ukraine president in one of 2 phone calls that we know about now so this is certainly a study will be looking ahead to that they're going to be 3 days of public hearings all star witnesses kimberly thank you can be healthy joining us live there from
6:20 pm
washington d.c. a new report from human rights watch says a violent crackdown on protesters in sudan in june could about 2 crimes against humanity the rights group says sudanese forces opened fire on protesters they also committed crimes of 6 you will violence witnesses members of the forces were seen throwing bodies into the river nile paramilitary unit commanded by the deputy head of sudan's traditional government is accused of leading those attacks activists demanding an independent inquiry and that those responsible a held to account here morgan has more from counter walking down the street brings painful memories for idea of a key he says he was here on june 3rd one of found participating in a sit in it had been going on for 2 months when soldiers read it he gets in the car to show is the scar left by the bullets. the soldiers came from all directions and

6:26 pm
be the general public. the government recognizes the people's right to protest but a protest too is different from a brighter i think today's demonstrations are 80 percent less than yesterday and i think by tomorrow it will all be gone in the capital security forces were highly visible in certain parts of the city on monday aiming to prevent any further unrest it's not just the security forces that have been deployed across the country officials have also announced a complete internet blackout and as nearly 60000000000 iranians wait to receive their subsidies many are wondering if the disruptions will be worth it. tehran. russia has returned 3 captured naval ships to ukraine ahead of a planned peace summit next month the vessels had been moved to a handover location in the black sea russia seized the ships off the coast of crimea a year ago more than 13000 people have been killed in eastern ukraine over the past

president rajapaksa claimed victory after a campaign marked by nationalist rhetoric and promises of better secured. if you now have the task of lifting the country out of an economic slump it was made worse by the easter bombings that killed more than $260.00 people. banks will reopen in lebanon on tuesday a week after staff went on strike nationwide the museum has agreed to new security measures after employees complained of face intimidation from clients demanding money lebanon's been embroiled in ongoing protests across the country. president has promised reforms after weeks of violent protests the best in piñera announced a referendum on replacing the constitution which dates back 30 years to the pinochet dictatorship he criticized police actions in the past month with at least
6:34 pm
22 people killed in protests prosecutors are investigating more than a 1000 cases of alleged abuse. joins us now from santiago santiago how the people have responded to these comments from pin year who is criticizing the police as these investigations continue into human rights abuses. that's right stan it's actually the 1st time that we've seen this sort of rhetoric come from the chilean president admitting specifically the fault of the country's security forces and again we're at one at the one month mark since the start of the unrest here in the country after a sort of quiet weekend we're hearing calls for and convening for more protests and demonstrations to take place today a month today monday now on sunday night what we did hear from the president was quote regrettably despite the firm commitment to protect human rights abuses were committed so again referring to this heavy handed crackdown by security forces who
6:35 pm
have been known to use live ammunition who have been known to use lead helots to disperse the crowds this is been one of the main focuses of i are one of the reasons why we continue to see thousands of people take to the streets of the capital and cities elsewhere in chile this is drawn the condemnation of international human rights groups and it's one of the main focuses when you're out on the streets you're seeing signs that say no more lead hell it's no more live ammunition specifically calling out the security forces of the country for this heavy handed crackdown to disperse the ongoing the crowds amidst the ongoing unrest and also almost protests. to get people out on the streets and. to the constitution. there is an expectation that despite this being the one month mark there will be more protests to continue and large ones because that's what we've seen take place up until now in terms of the constitutional reforms there is
6:36 pm
a referendum that is announced that will be taking place in april of 2020 of course many of the people that we're hearing from here in the country say that they would like that referendum to take place soon or one of the things that we're hearing from people is from an opinion poll that was conducted nationwide is that 63.5 percent of chileans are in favor of a constitutional convention. for the drafting of a new constitution but they do not want the input from politicians there is a large mistrust of public figures here in the country there's a mistrust of distrust of the president so now what we're hearing apart from these calls against. 1 against a generalized inequality in the country they're calling for the resignation of the president so part for wanting a new constitution for the formation of a constitutional convention they want the resignation of the president it's become one of the most front and center topics when you speak to people at these at these demonstrations which again stand are expected to continue we're expected to see one
6:37 pm
start to take place within the next hours in fact stan and all thank you for that moment joining us live there from santiago let's take a closer look now at the economic effect of a number of these protests around the world 5 months of anti-government demonstrations are causing more alarm for hong kong which is regarded as a prosperous territory just days ago it plunged into recession for the 1st time in a decade it's a call to be shrinking by 3.2 percent since july lebannon was already on the brink of recession before protests began last month growth is to just point 3 percent this year the slump is bearing demonstrators who are calling for political overall and in chile there are fears for the future of what was a latin american economic success story growth slumped from nearly 4 percent last year to 1.9 percent last quarter and protests of a metro fears have turned into demands as we just heard from one well to social equality and a new constitution in big is
6:38 pm
a professorial research fellow for the europeans jude at the london school of economics and political science he joins us now from london so if these protests have begun because people are concerned politically in some cases concerned economically is that now starting to work against their interests as the economies of these countries july for instance lebannon hong kong start to worse. well you're so into it's always going to be the case that if you're a disruption on the streets it's going to detract from economic prospects one thing it does is to tend to slow down investment in general and particularly foreign investment because of foreign investors going to look at a country that's undergoing some kind of crisis and say no we don't want to go there but i think there's also a wider and deeper challenge going on here to globalization which lies behind some of the protests we're seeing the people who are protesting often feel that they're not benefiting from globalization all the money's going to the elites and societies
6:39 pm
and their and their creaming off what ought to be shared much more widely so is the sense of inequality as a result of globalization which explains much of what you're saying by way of protest of course it is different in different countries you know hong kong of course protesting against what it sees the encroachments of china but just picking up on that issue of globalization there is a response that's different in different countries isn't there you see in july people saying well here liberalism is born here it will die here hong kong which is already prosperous concerned about about mainland china of course in lebanon they want real structural political reform as well so we see a different pushback don't we in different countries to what is the impact do globalization in the liberal politics. yes i mean one of the reasons for this that's been started by a number of academics is that when you are much more open world your challenge to persevered with democracy with the liberal economic model and still to achieve
6:40 pm
social cohesion the equality of women i was talking about before and sometimes you have to choose between them in hong kong because that has been on autonomy and democratic rights in some other countries it's been a clampdown on social benefits the protest in france for example has been against some of the reactions to do with environmental politics but also the sense that the poorest in society are not benefiting so you do see these different pathways because it's hard to reconcile these different influences what academics refer to as a try lemma 33 different options of what you can choose and best to any time and in the protest is uniformly a young is a generational shift perhaps people who missed out on the benefits of globalisation the neo liberal politics not the people who lifted out of poverty but the people who felt that they didn't get the future they were hoping for i'm just wondering is
6:41 pm
as you look around at these protests whether you think they're very different in each case but where do you think they can bring about the change that they particularly want whether it's political change or economic change or in hong kong is it guys resisting the ongoing influence of mainland china. well yes there are ways through this and protest movements tend in the end to lead to some form of social economic or constitutional change we saw it in across europe in the 1960 s. with the famous protests that broke down charlotte a goal led the student revolutions in many countries to lead to a form of equality and now we're seeing it around different topics like environmentalism and i think what you start to see is some attempt by political authorities to recognize the depth of this and in some cases to draw back from globalization one way of interpreting what trump has been up to the united states is that it's
6:42 pm
a backlash against globalization putting america 1st putting displaced workers in america 1st whether it's correct or not to say that trump a billionaire is really on the side of the little guys or maybe taking it too far but that's the kind of reaction you get in some countries a big pleasure to have you on the program thank you for your analysis thank you. food in most south asian countries wouldn't be complete without some onions but they've become affordable for many families in bangladesh prices have soared to record highs off tonight bring india exports 2 months ago reports from dhaka. one of the most state. bank. it is also the hottest topic right now in bangladesh media it has also taken over the social media by way of. what. $0.36 per. kilogram government providing
6:43 pm
subsidized for the marginalised poor by way of special delivery but the people here . fear iraq. these are not of good quality some of them are rotten but what can we do the prince the too high and we have no choice as poor people. some of the reason why. is because our bang of the government's failure to import onion in timely fashion india's ban on export of onion to bangladesh and some unscrupulous trader holding on to manipulate market price. you can't get onions because there's a lack of. planning exposure which is also why an in prices have gone up and in prices too hot for cooking most poor people and even the middle class stop using onion as a cooking ingredient. we have stopped buying onions because the prime minister has forced us to cook or dishes without it is not possible for us ordinary people to
6:44 pm
buy onions such a high price. as a symbolic gesture the prime minister herself has not to use onion as an ingredient in our dishes although the price is up slightly going down because the government started their listing on importing onions from middle and even central asia but prices remain still high in the market for most people. still ahead in sports. take a look at what a remote control. look like it's coming up with we're going. to. be a. wheel. we'll . we'll
