10:09 pm
day to day operations, nor, nor do we expect to mean that they're there and active fight. ah drunk as president is declared to stay emergency for the 2nd time in 5 weeks is government faces escalating process. millions of people stayed away from work on friday as anger is mounting against the worst economic crisis in 70 years. there are power cuts, but also major shortages in food fuel and medicine. men l fernandez reports now from colombo police were among the few state employees working in chill anchor on friday. these water cannon, auntie, aghast to disperse, hundreds of protesters gathered at barricade, sealing off the entrance to parliament. inside the building into java than a para opposition representatives marched into the speaker's office,
10:10 pm
asking him to order the police to stop that operation. the also demanded he set a date for a nor confidence motion. they're putting forward against the government. the government is under increasing pressure to resign, facing a 2nd nationwide strike in 8 days. hospitals, railways, postal services, schools, and poets were disrupted strictly with government and board. i bet i'd like to so dress wanted well for these failures, the free lunch i therefore, we don't believe they can be well up this country her after. therefore, we are asking mil goldman new uh, new leadership, a new system for sri lanka. that's why all the people i get together for one umbrella, demonstrations and march as like this have been a common site in the capital, colombo and around the country. in sheila, on the northwestern coast, fishermen also took part in the protests. however, they said, you know, be what we have more than $15000.00 fishing families in this area. we're all
10:11 pm
helpless. so we'll protest today tomorrow, and in the future it, i didn't hear that the government has admitted its foreign reserves, have fallen to just $50000000.00 us dollars, leaving it unable to buy essential food medicine and fuel cues have stretched for kilometers around most petrol stations. in recent days, after months of insisting it has things under control, the government is now approach the international monetary fund for a bailout. and president gotta be a roger potter has replaced his cabinet as cause increased for him to step down. his new media minister told al jazeera roger boxes making an effort and should be supported to bring stability. he got rid of some good, very popular, and people who him because some of a, some of his own family members of 5 of them out now. so we decided to coaching, does he attorney is making the effort a so i think um we are trying to help him. he has given us
10:12 pm
a challenge. we are trying to face that challenge and find solution to people, go to heaven says that new team should be given 6 months to a year and a half before elections are held to decide a way forward. trade union say the last work stoppage of this scale was 69 years ago, but our warning they will launch an indefinite strike. if the government does not, he demands for it to resign. men of fernandez, ojo 0 colombo, so we can now speak to johanna pereira is the executive director of the national peace council. a shrank a. he's and colombo, how wide spread are these protests? it's been developing for a long time, but has it become a set of movement or nationwide uprising calling for the raja packs of family to leave politics altogether. yes, it is taking place in all parts of the country particularly that singular majority parts of the country. thing are, these are the majority of the population and the other ones to watch. the president
10:13 pm
drive to populate the power and the government and the other ones are now taking the lead in opposing his government. because he has to be paying very shamefully in, in delivering results to the people that are incredible shortage of pet food medicine. and he had to take responsibility for this and i think the cause for him to resign. i'll bet it because he has to be responsible. the person who heads the government at the time when the economy is collapsing, cannot stay on and the rest of the government, i think also needs to sit down. now, what are the risks of that? could it leave a very problematic and damaging vacuum at a time of crisis? because it doesn't because the government has any intention of giving into the
10:14 pm
public frustration and course to resign. yes, the government at the moment is the government given very confused? because the here every day that the prime minister is going to resign, are you going to? or the president, you're going to get him to step down. the prime minister is the president, older brother. he but the palmer president. so there is good division there. and then we also know that a few days ago the deputy speaker resign. then he contested election again between parliament and got elected. and then the next day he resigned again. so they actually looked at the chaos within the government. and this is very concerning to us and now the government and the emergency at the time when protests are basically very peacefully, incredible. how peaceful these pockets have been. and how can call the practice to
10:15 pm
have been to remain peaceful because they know that they cannot fight against the government. that is, that has the army and police with them. and because in the past, use the army and police in a very way, at the time of the wall. so a be really concerned that the government is taking the attitude of not listening to the people, but trent, using emergency law to try and press down on the stairs, how the protest is likely to respond with lee. you have many, shall i come to an angry about a massive decline in living standards, but there are others who impoverished it was struggling to feed their families. will they continue to, to resist and confront a security forces or might they be intimidated into silence? that there are, there are 2 groups of people, one on the universe to students,
10:16 pm
young people who are affiliated to political parties. and then there is a large mass of people, the general population who come on a they come in and out of the practice. i think the university students, the, you literary men coming to they also politically motivated. they really probably fight. and this is very bad because in the past we have had very, very violent situations where government crept down and you revolted. we don't want that to happen again. in this case, the, all the people joining that you join them, you know, we protect them. and because also they feel very strongly about the situation in the country. and they feel that the youth, what you're doing is for all the people we want our government to think of all the people rather than their own position and take a peek at actually accordingly. and i think that also have sold badly and
10:17 pm
brought this country to this wretched need to take responsibility and in any other country. i think that would step down john for thank you very much, breaking it down for us. and that way from the national peace council, if she could, joining us from colombo and watching al jazeera life from london, much more filter, bring you on the program, israeli police launch a massive man on the 2 men suspected of a fatal stabbing attack in the city of a lot and the irish nationalist partition saying is on cause for a huge win in northern islands elections, bringing the prospects of the united island close. ah ah, let's go with your weather report for europe in africa here for one good to see. so
