2:04 am
see as a brighter and fairer a future. what's her designs are going to others for correspondent john bartlett has been tracking those protests now john is of course are 2 high profile events i mean do we know what exactly led to this cancellation we were hearing just days ago that the president said they were going to have. yeah i think just to break that down i think the person saying that these were going to go ahead was the only thing you really could say i think not going to call both here and internationally as well but i think that she's never really seen this process going to go to scale that they did. stood up now i think the only really one of which was to come. it's a huge shame. i mean chile has been working and people been working for a year to get this to get this event so it's it i think in terms of security i
2:05 am
think it was almost almost impossible for him to kind of i think he probably could have guaranteed the security people but it's just not worth the risk and i think the other thing is the terms of public relations the public image of chile it would have been an absolute nightmare to have people and world leaders and their own 2 russians coming to chile and seeing what it was like on the ground and you know giving interviews and saying saying what they've been saying i don't think i've been particularly favorable so i think from both points of view i think that we pretty much had to pull out it's a question let's talk about these these events now briefly i mean the cop 25 climate conference is just over a month away the apec meetings were supposed to be in just a few weeks do we know anything about what happens now with these 2 conference conferences there must be a lot of things up in the air. yes i think saying to take a pic 1st i think that was it's looking like they're going to try to find a replacement venue in a couple weeks away it's going to be difficult the cult i think is a slightly different matter i mean that takes a huge amount of organization cost to recruit on the front runners to replace
