11:05 am

11:06 am
the most controversial of circumstances. and yes has bitterly opposed the country's ruler since she entered the libyan politics over a decade ago now the senate vice president has declared herself the next in line to the presidency. thank you to everyone in bolivia fix heaping faith i promised her a tan democracy and stability to believe via. t.v. . but how does the news come to power democratic movements there she made her constitutional case. put on this is that you know. with the ruling party boycotting the national assembly she told opposition lawmakers that she had to step into the breach and take the president i actually i assume the state presidency immediately as specified in the constitution for me.
11:07 am
but longtime leader evo morales a shadow still looms over events it. is now in mexico where he was granted asylum after he resigned from there he is continuing to reel against his removal from power her out. on twitter morales quickly responded to and yes his declaration writing. the sneakiest and most nefarious coup in history has been completed a right wing coup mongering senator has proclaimed himself president of the senate and then interim president of bolivia a former president told the news that morales is a legit vote rigging was necessary in order to save democracy. the lesson bolivia will learn is that a government that takes a step outside the rule of the law must be condemned by the bolivian people and the international community because when you allow the 1st violation the 2nd and 3rd
11:08 am
come to and they grow they become a snowball. and yet morale is still has support especially among the country's poor indigenous communities. they've responded with anger to his declaration less than a month after contested presidential election plunged the country into chaos the battle for the. only seems to be escalating. and let's get some analysis on this story now we can speak to america every toss she's a senior lecturer in latin american politics at the university of liverpool thank you for joining us senator on yes has declared herself interim president as we saw and the former president evo morales is calling this a coup is it the what really has happened here. well the new interpretation of the situation and what alice's restaurant nation moose is has
11:09 am
become very controversial so already opposition argues starts with his resignation following. a suggestion from the military that he should resign is as legitimate and the reasons they're in starts over now his electoral fraud allegations are up and also about what our assessment respect of a limited. terms presidential serves in the elections. so what are the supporters out in bolivia and abroad argue instead that's the military's. declaration or so a news article and they shouldn't have been involved in commenting on the political situation. they also argue that's what alice offered new elections so those suggestions should have been followed up and start where does all of this leave in
11:10 am
what alice she still has a huge following in bolivia is there any chance that we could see him try to stage a comeback well or do you think one of 2 reasons stats the opposition has moved as it as it did was to prevent what i was running again what allison as far as president there see i mean there are. so or he still has a large following and the outcome of of 2 turns who supports our elections indicates i would have had a good chance of rubble. and they obviously see this us as dangerous and another pillar of her support are the social movements so they have to clerics many of them have declared themselves against what they call. against police for certain facts what's happening. and medic if we take a little bit of a broader perspective here we see bolivia in crisis there have been massive protests in chile ecuador and hundreds have also seen protests how interconnected
11:11 am
is this on rust in latin america what are we seeing here well if you look at so countries like chile and ecuador departs us there have been different groups so in chile in the accord or even steaming toward justice in our guidance. when government's policies of austerity high levels of inequality are particular issue in chile as well as the constitution. so. do you just saw probably inspired by the changes in the chiefs wouldn't protest movement of the we should also i'm just there are differences. all right medical a senior lecturer in latin american politics at the university of liverpool thank you thank you very much let's check in now on some other stories making news around the world violent protests have again broken out in the chilean capital santiago after the national currency the peso dropped to an historic low weeks of

against the country's ruling elite. hong kong police chief says pro-democracy protesters are pushing the city to quote the brink of a total breakdown the last 2 days have been among the most violent since the demonstrations started 5 months ago the main flashpoint has become the university district where there have been fresh clashes between demonstrators and police. they say they're protecting their university. they use anything they can get their hands on sigrid barricades. campuses have emerged as the latest front in battles with the police. the students are determined to fight for their freedom. this is a fight for a whole generation we are not letting go slowly change our good place our hope. it doesn't take long for things to escalate. the familiar click of tear gas being
11:14 am
fired. seems like this play out across hong kong like here in the financial center . they're now seemingly a normal part of 5 months of unresolved protests the police say this city is on the brink of a breakdown. journeys daily life disrupted after protesters through debris on the tracks. this man asked what he'll do says the protest leader no choice but to go home and not work the. police and protesters accuse each other of brutality on monday the protesters set amount on fire after an argument. police are investigating the incident as attempted murder. they've also defended shooting a protester saying they were concerned for their own safety. in a situation like this we believe we're acting according to the guard lines to
11:15 am
protect ourselves as well as the people around us. here with more protests expected the fear on both sides is that they already volatile situation is only likely to get worse. let's bring in correspondent he's at the bridge leading to chinese university where protesters have a set up barricades have a ts bring us up to date on what's been happening there where you are. well as you said this is the bridge that enters the campus and this is the bridge where police tried to enter campus yesterday which led to these clashes protesters have set up barricades here they have barricaded all the entrances to this university now this university is different from other universities in other parts of town in that it is in a hilly area and there are very few access points to this university so it's very easy to block off now the campus is under the control of the protesters and they
11:16 am
are preparing for the police to return so they have set up not only barricades but they've also prepared hundreds and hundreds of molotov cocktails and weapons to counter the police if they were to enter but i in my opinion it's all it would be very difficult for them already for the geographical layout of this university and there is also now an injunction in court pending where the student unions have asked an injunction that would prevent the police to enter university campuses without. permission from the university administration this is what has been the practice in hong kong and this is what the what why the east these these attempts yesterday to enter the university led to these clashes because they thought it was a breach of the rules that were at the princes the students thought it was a breach of the rules that were existing like this are there any efforts at the
11:17 am
moment the ask the late in the situation as it seems to grow ever more violent is there any and mediation happening between hong kong leadership and these protesters . not that i know yesterday there was an attempt by the president of the university into negotiations with the police and the approach between the police and the protesters demanding the crew to police to retreat from this bridge and then the protesters would have to promise that they would not throw anything at the police in the direction of the of the police but when he was still talking to protesters police advanced already and the protesters were continuously throwing stuff so then clashes erupted and this was by far the most violent clashes that i've witnessed since i have been here in hong kong reporting from the very beginning off this movement there were hundreds and hundreds of police had today 1500 rounds of tear gas fired in the whole city but a major part here in its seconds it was it was really. fire so this is of
11:18 am
course leading to an escalation and the government has made clear it is not intending to give in to any demands now what negotiations can there be if the government says that all of that giving into the demands what would be wishful thinking so i don't see any effort by any side to solve this in negotiations and there's nobody no neutral instance who would be able to do this at the moment. considering that also everything the government negotiates needs. to go from beijing correspondent to ts telling our reporting there with the very latest from hong kong thank you. donald trump is facing the biggest challenge yet of his presidency with potentially explosive public impeachment hearings due to open later today lawmakers will question 2 diplomats on whether trump sought ukraine's help for his 2020 reelection campaign democrats are seeking to prove that
