it's written communist party since the 1959 revolution and its power is handed over to miguel diaz can l. we look at the situation in the country today this is the end of the need but continuation of the legacy of the beginning of real change in cuba special coverage has rolled past 2 steps down on al-jazeera 'd. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian for they get this is that he was live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes pro-democracy media tycoon jimmy ly is among several people jailed in hong kong for their roles in 29000 anti-government protests. distressing video showing an officer shooting dead a 13 year old latino boy adds to u.s.

outrage over racism and police. figures from the outlaws and he cood movement join us to politicians and others and what they're calling a national unity government. and how the corona virus pandemic has created big supply problems for the small chips that keep us connected and i'm leah hearty in with sports hockey is crisis team is hit with more problems the vancouver canucks reached return to action has been delayed indefinitely after more than 20 players tested positive for corona virus. 9 pro-democracy activists in hong kong have been sentenced for taking part in anti-government protests in 2019 among them is veteran campaigner martin lee it was given a suspended sentence of 11 months on media tycoon jimmy lai was sentenced to 12 months in this case of more. a separate matter $2900.00 mass protests where
1:02 pm
opposition to a bill that would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland china it was shelved but beijing later imposed a contentious national security law on kong let's go live now to rob hong kong how serious adrian brown is outside the courthouse there adrian we can hear some disturbance going on behind you you'll tell us about that no doubt you were in court for those hearings tell us about these verdicts and the reaction to them. well you can hear some of the reaction at the moment day 3 of these are supporters of the activists who were sentenced on friday was for them of course it is a mix through so for received suspended sentences but 5 others have been jailed for terms rating from 8 to 18 months and at the moment actually they're chanting some of the slogans you heard during those protests in 2019 that technically of course
1:03 pm
break the new national security law at the moment the police are standing back they haven't moved in yet but i would imagine if the supporters carry on chanting their way they are the police may well be forced to take action but the real story today adrian has i think been what happened to jimmy die he has received 3 sentences he has been jailed for 12 months but then he received an additional 2 months just a short time ago for taking part in a protest in july the main protest the focus of today's sentencing happened of course in august and we've also learned today adrian that jimmy law is going to face additional charges under the new national security law remember he's already in jail having been arrested under that legislation now he's going to be charged once more so he faces 3 charges under the new national security law which means of course. that he's if convicted going to spend very likely the rest of his life in
1:04 pm
jail the other activists today adrian people like martin lee margaret i'm represented in many ways the core of the campaign for democracy that began in hong kong just before i arrived here back in 1988 when i often used to go to interview martin lee at the time he was campaigning for hong kong to have you know more directly elected seats in the mini parliament it's a sad irony because in many ways that campaign is back to where it began because of course the recent political oval hole by china means that in the new enlarged legislature only 20 of those seats will be directly elected a lot of foreign observers here today from representing 7 countries and that's a reflection i think of the international concern over this case and of course china will also be watching this very carefully indeed remember there's been calls
1:05 pm
on the mainland the jimmy lie to actually stand trial there of course. and how will today's verdict impact upon hong kong's pro-democracy movement. well you know it's still there but it doesn't have the firepower that it did back in 2019 i spoke to emily lau a short time ago she's a former chairman of the democratic party she said you know the fight will go on but the fight will go on peacefully emily lau is actually quite an interesting case because she is an outspoken opposition figure who's yet to be arrested and she says i'm not sure whether that's going to happen but she has i think that sort of damocles still hanging over. i was is adrian brown reporting live from hong kong for the moment adrian many thanks indeed. police in the united sates of facing more furious protests this time over the fatal shooting of a 13 year old latino boy it happened last month but video of the incident has any

1:08 pm
identified as eric stillman and obviously shaken immediately after the shooting is now on administrative duties the chicago police department was cited by the us justice department in 2017 for civil rights violations aimed at minorities and a white officer who shot a black man 16 times in 2014 was convicted of murder we live in a city that is traumatized by a long history of police violence and misconduct so while we don't have enough information to be the judge and jury of this particular situation it is certainly understandable why so many of our residents are feeling it all too familiar surge of outrage and pain chicago's mayor and the toledo family have issued a joint call for calm in the city acknowledging the painful footage will elicit an emotional response from all who view it the last moments of a 13 year old who according to his mother had dreamed of becoming
1:09 pm
a police officer himself now dead at the hands of one heidi jo castro al-jazeera. in that we'll hear from a witness to another fatal us police shooting who says the victim wasn't offered immediate mental medical care. groups opposed to the military have joined forces to form a national unity government outside the country as part of the ongoing resistance to military rule they include ousted members of parliament ethnic leaders and protest leaders hundreds of civilian protesters have been killed since the coup at the start of february the unity government is made up of ethnic minority leaders it's promising to end people's suffering politician dr sassa has been appointed the ousted government's envoy to the u.n. he says this new move will help to show the world who are the rightful leaders. it's the time for international community to recognize another side is very bad
1:10 pm
mother us they are the killers so to today i am not see any international community recognized military generals as government of me among so now we are given a very good chance which and has no community tonight. of course there will be some challenge but we weaned that challenge ready to mind to go moment don't want the for more or less let's bring in scott hyla who is live in bangkok in neighboring thailand scott what does this mean for protesters on the ground right now. agent well it's not going to mean anything really that different to them right now obviously this is a good move it's a move to recognize this body this parallel government if you will
1:11 pm
that's against the justice so that is good news for the protestors but what it means actually on the ground probably not that much different quite honestly they're still going to face this intensified crackdown by the security forces on the streets across myanmar as they go out so that won't change but what they're hoping to do this new government this new unity government including leaders from ethnic groups they are looking for recognition we heard dr sauce out there kind of explain it but a little bit more to it is that what they're trying to do is really participate in the dialogue that everyone is hoping will eventually come everyone in the region everyone fighting against the inside myanmar and that is hopefully through the un hopefully through some regional bodies where there will be some type of dialogue to try to find a political solution so this unity government is trying to do in their effort now as they've officially named officers in this in this unity government and that
1:12 pm
officials in this unity government and that is they want a seat at that table they want to participate if the job to sends a representative if there are other representatives from other nations it's a tall order that this will actually be recognized as a government of myanmar any time soon but what it does do is it pushes forward this organization this this government in exile if you will even though some of the members are still in myanmar it pushes that forward to so they can have a seat at that table so they can speak with a more unified voice those who oppose the germans and who working against the inside myanmar the protesters will still continue along with what they have been doing most likely this will be more of the political track the 2nd track of dialogue and pushing for with the international community to try to. find a political solution to what's happening in the m.r. right now it's got many thanks i was it was called hydra that live in bangkok let's bring in our own connelly who's research fellow in southeast asian politics and foreign policy with the international institute for strategic studies he's in
1:13 pm
singapore right now good to have you with this are and what are your thoughts then on this government in exile its makeup and what it can achieve with us here he is the committee representative done salut glutes committee representing the national suddenly which is this kind of alternative government that is being created from members who are left to the parliament in november they really have 2 goals here the 1st goal is to try and bring in some of the ethnic minority groups that populate mostly the periphery of the country and also some of the ethnic armed organizations that control territory in that area it's your ph doesn't have arms it doesn't control territory but the armed organizations do and so they can align themselves with some of these those then they can claim that they will territory and help them as they go around the world claiming that they are the legitimate government of me and maher not the state administrative council and to think created by the military as you know brutalized population over the last 2 months
1:14 pm
and this is a much wider group of people than the bab's the the n l d the that the ousted governing party would have assembled isn't it. it is they've reached out to for instance the vice chairman of the chin national pride and the chin are an ethnic minority group in western me and maher and so this is a group that is spot for more autonomy from the center than the n l d a sense the chief party has traditionally believed is appropriate so they are reaching out to some ethnic minority communities in a bid to try to be more inclusive it's also notable that the national unity government was announced by i mean kona who are really is 2nd only taniguchi in terms of the prominence of the leaders who came out of the 988 failed revolution and it's of the fact that he was there and he and his crew had really been pushed aside by oncet she you know you know the over the past 10 years the fact that he
1:15 pm
was there announcing this national unity government is particularly resonant inside me and not ok what about to talk to sauces role in this unity government what will he be doing. because it will probably be as ubiquitous as ever he has been the face of the c.r.t. age the committee representing natural some believe it or miss national unity government today he's received a kind of promotions been appointed minister for international cooperation so no longer just a special envoy federal minister but i don't anticipate that you know is activities will really change in their character at all over the next several several weeks or months and he talks about this group reaching out to ethnic groups and man ma. of course said it has no army but of course these armed groups could represented on the ground couldn't. they couldn't there been a lot of conversations over the last 4 weeks or so about a federal democratic aren't most of these ethnic are organizations traditionally
1:16 pm
their goal has been to hold territory they gauge and i'm quite a bit of illicit trade in terms of jed and timber people drugs some of them and they tend to try to control territory so that they can engage in that illicit trade and create some autonomy in those areas and also defend be used i think minority languages and ethnic minority rights in those areas other complicated groups but they have not traditionally sought to take the center of the country and if they were all cooperate in this federal democratic party that has been proposed to cooperate against and to try to take land often in a systematic way they could pose a really significant threat to the disability to maintain control of central nehemiah good to talk to many thanks data and probably that in singapore. it with the news out from out 0 still to come on the program figures showing
1:17 pm
china's economy is surging back from a pandemic and what it could mean for the global recovery. that in sports manchester united have given themselves another chance of ending them losing one in cup semifinals. iran says that it's successfully enrich the uranium to 60 percent fall beyond the limits set under the terms of the 2050 nuclear deal it comes a day after more talks were held in vienna aimed at reviving the accord discussions have progressed that were affected by an attack on iran's main nuclear facility last sunday u.s. president joe biden says that he wants to rejoin the agreement but that iran must 1st reverse its violations tehran wants u.s. sanctions lifted for us to iran to serious as i said begg is is with us what are we to make of this claim that iran has enriched uranium to 60 percent should we be at
1:18 pm
all skeptical. well the head of iran's atomic organizations. that he's spoken to local media here he said that iran is now collecting dust bin rich 60 percent around 9 grams per hour whether we should be skeptical not i don't think we should i think iran has been very open and transparent about what it's doing it's invited i.a.e.a. inspectors to the main nuclear facility natanz we understand they visited on wednesday and iran's leadership has said that they are able to enrich to 60 percent in fact president hassan rouhani yesterday said that iran is able to enrich to 90 percent which is weapons grade which i did that iran's nuclear program is peaceful and iran doesn't want a nuclear weapon and iran would return to those levels of 3.67 percent permitted by the 2015 nuclear deal if the united states rejoined and lifted all those sanctions
1:19 pm
but it is important to note this is the highest level of enrichment iran has ever done and it seems response to the incident to the act of sabotage as iran has called the nuclear terrorism as well at their main nuclear facility in the 10s so why does iran want to enrich uranium as high as 60 percent what is it going to do with it. well iran's line is that it's for medical use but the europeans have said that there's no need for iran to enrich to 60 percent in reality it could be as leverage in those negotiations because after iran the nuclear plant was attacked iran has always had some sort of response so if you look at the 20 percent enrichment which again is above the levels permitted by the 2015 nuclear deal that was a response to the assassination of iran's leader nuclear scientist must in fact result in november after this incident there's again demand within the country from politicians to have
1:20 pm
a response and that response seems to be 60 percent whether iran actually needs it for medical purposes or not is a different question but it's definitely leverage in those talks taking place in vienna. reporting live from tehran i said many thanks indeed china has released record growth figures as it rebounds from the pandemic it says the economy grew by 18.3 percent during the 1st quarter of the year as compared to the same period last year 0 as katrina year reports from shanghai. 18.3000000 incredible think of course especially given that we're in the middle of a pandemic not the biggest quarterly growth figure that china has posted since records began in 1993 so we counter remember that is it is a somewhat skewed figure because we're coming off a very low base this time last year china posted a historic contraction of almost 7 percent that really did set the stage for a dramatic rebound that we've seen so this 18.3 percent very large figure was in
1:21 pm
line with what many economists were expecting now we have to look at this in terms of the context of china getting back to normal life last year we had some quite draconian measures to control 19 and because of that we saw this outbreak controlled relatively early compared to other countries last year it started to make up for those losses economically and from september it had kind of made up for those losses and continue to grow and so we actually saw in 2020 china's economy grew by 2.3 percent and it was the only major economy to do so so that's important but what. economic growth has been robust it has been on even the last of it is thanks in large part to a strong industrial sector a lot of these exports going to other countries especially those still affected by lockdowns and also this state led infrastructure building in some moderates. is to thank for that. when
1:22 pm
a week ago the international monetary fund for cost of the global economy will expand this year at its fastest pace in $4.00 decades led by china the i.m.f. predicts the chinese economy will grow by 8.4 percent the us the world's largest economy will be the other powerhouse expanding by a full cost 6.4 percent while the world economy overall is expected to grow by 6 percent this year let's bring in. a regional economist with c i m b private banking he joins us now live via skype from singapore good to have you with us impressive numbers that out of china good news for china what about for the rest of us what do they mean. for all of us i suppose when you're talking about a recovery in the stone age of man coupled with the message that manrico didn't china we are seeing imports in english football are us the rest of the world will exports it to china for the rest of us will consume it's basically reflecting that recovery in next along that mine so yes as the op earlier pointed out i am maps
1:23 pm
a strain hourly that girl looks over today's big we may see it but there are great to it i mean biggest come october is this the sort of the asian led global economy how long before china overtakes the u.s. to become the biggest economy in the world good question i suppose the real day will be somewhat bumpy given the trade has become a weapon. increasingly over the last couple of years but nonetheless with the kind of repression joe we're talking about with the kind of investment in do that you see in the modern modern manufacturing modern services he loves les i think china will be showing who would growth in the coming year momentum over the last couple quarters has slowed down somewhat and headline as you pointed out very strong roles on the onion money according to the board slightly slower growth in forward but nonetheless i think the moment pushing the ball more balanced growth
1:24 pm
coming through but obviously there's the risk you know you're talking about let me be pretty soon as far as china being the largest economy and what are the risks for the rest of us you talk about it being good news for the global economy but as china china's economy continues to grow in power ahead like illness does that mean that the jobs will be lost elsewhere in the world that industries will close this business moves towards china where things could be done cheaper. well i think it's very simple we're looking at it all would rather look at it from economy standpoint would say the county is growing so we are now there are growing the chinese consumption salaries strengthen imports also rules so job creation we've been china job creation even with. as we continue to also capitalize on middle income rising rate of consumption income rising and strengthening. economies in the
1:25 pm
region quite a meter from the share the biggest growth year on year quarter on quarter in the subsequent quarters and obviously what that one of the economies you're supporting about the brands up out by new investment opening with a bump up it's for spending with not infrastructure spending coming through so i'll say there will be definitely jobs lost because of that there is ation of the real goods and services around the war including within china it's up a net net margin will be created then loss and you talked about the road ahead being potentially bumpy what are some of the potential bumps. what simply from ipanema standpoint it could be something like the shot the increases that he has see possibly all the recovery in the man as well as supplying the structure and import prices which over many businesses. he puts and services and to what extent they can pass on the consumer to you when i so we're watching that closely where
1:26 pm
watching well also closely quickly interest rate possible rolling recovers especially if the at the market recovery of the economy recovery continues to be somewhat an event that he needs to restriction in place obviously those industries providing those services are still being affected as long as in person and consumer facing the speech the biggest challenges obviously uneven recovery and obviously behind job political reasons you're talking about that too because. china and the u.s. . do the. relationship and not improving is still there we are hopeful that it can but obviously not a straight forward these days really cuts to many thanks indeed for bank balance thank you. a weather update next here on the news then we'll look at why pakistan has blocked social media we'll have
1:27 pm
