a twenty five percent duty will be added to their import costs in july the u.s. sparked a trade war with china is demanding that beijing change what it says are unfair practices around technology and intellectual property will agent brown joins us live now from beijing agency yet another raft of u.s. tariffs on china but who's actually winning this trade war there. well i think both sides feel they have the upper hand at the moment both sides feel they can outlast the other in this trade war but certainly the the narrative you're getting from the united states is that chinese leaders are under pressure chinese leaders are starting to sweat and perhaps president xi jinping and his advisors didn't really anticipate just how resolute president trump would be when it came to tariffs no in fact just in the last few minutes down china has responded notice appears on the commerce ministry website saying that china was retaliating against
1:06 pm
washington it was going to appeal once more to the world trade organization no details of what that retaliation would be but china has said in the past that it would respond in kind so that means i guess that is now going to impose tariffs on sixteen billion dollars worth of u.s. goods so you know we are into this sort of downward tit for tat spirals of tariffs and it is beginning to seem as though we are going to be in for a protracted war where these tariffs could remain in place not just for weeks months but possibly years and adrian any signs yet that these trade frictions are starting to hurt chinese consumers not that i can really discern certainly i think people are worried about the prospects of a prolonged trade war but there's no panic there's no sign of china's economy imploding there are no frenzied queues of shoppers but on the horizon daryn there
1:07 pm
are i think some some red flags one of those red flags is in fact debt and that pile of debt is actually getting much bigger because china's government is now doing what it always does during economic difficulties it's turning on the credit tap to try to insulate chinese businesses chinese consumers from the effects of this tariff war adrian thank you. well earlier this year china responded to us measures by imposing a fifteen percent levy on american wine imports now hundreds of thousands of dollars of deliveries have been put on hold rob reynolds reports from california's wine country. like a cascade of green and gold and jewels right sauvignon blanc grapes fall into a press at the one exam lee winery in california's napa valley it's one of many steps toward creating premium wines that sell for as much as one hundred dollars

the news continues. after the stream station that's watching. china is keen to win friends and influence you need oil rich middle east peace is part of the wrong turn . the security resources for the future. as a whole balance expect growth we bring you the stories the economic world we live. on al-jazeera. and you're in the stream live on al-jazeera and you tube if you say please go out and rest and jailing of a popular musician in uganda how will the arrest of bobby wine impact ugandan politics join us with your comments and questions.
1:22 pm
through his music and political platform uganda's self described ghetto president bobby wine has become an outspoken critic of president seventy. nine hundred eighty six the popular singer turned politician was arrested last week along with at least thirty other opposition members after the seventies motorcade was attacked with stones soon after came accusations of treason now but we wian is being held in a military prison charged with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition. the jailing and alleged mistreatment of the musician by security forces sparked protests and unrest earlier this week in kampala online the hash tags free bobby why and release are being used to bring attention to this case since the week in one protester was killed and at least sixty eight have been arrested so today we want to know how the rest of what we whine and the opposition voices will leave politics in uganda with us to talk about this in kampala. a journalist
1:23 pm
andrew and the founder of the independent that's a newspaper in kampala and that's a barlow is a social media activists we also are a spokesperson ugandan government to join our program but they declined our offer the yes it is really good to have you start let's start with the president's own words. twitter this president with seventy which we did moments ago i have noted the issue of unprincipled politicians taking advantage of our unemployed youth to lure them into riots and demonstrations and this is something my government is addressing this is part of a longer statement that he's released on the official presidential website but grace what do you make of the president's comments there. thank you for having it once again so i think this. kind of narrative that the president wants to make it sound like they're young people are not interested at
1:24 pm
all in the. way it's going on but they maybe i'm employed and that's up many of them i mean nobody doesn't mean that they don't care about what's happening in that country and it doesn't mean they don't care that they don't see that we'll tell you do it on what i've been to book wayne so i think it's just a narrative that he's been using. just to get people to feel guilty for participating in most of the demonstrations so yeah i. mean just doesn't. i want to show our audience some pictures from uganda from the last few days edwin shares this on twitter a photo journalists are voices photo journalists here covering the story and you can see what's been happening there he's been beaten then we have a member of parliament in hospital after also. being beaten and
1:25 pm
then there's a picture i can't show you the picture but read if you want to get it at a tea party wine then you will see this story here police a shot my driver dead thinking they shot me and then you need to scroll down because i cannot show you that picture on international t.v. and what's going on. i should provide you context about four months ago the government under. general police. and he will be appearing in its general court martial but i think he had to go to lodge a network of civic activists to provide him information in time to be able to contain riots the new team india going to police and the military and not to use it to contending for this and i think there is a huge gap in the ground and security apparatus that is why you see them acting in such a desperate man i should also inform you that the photographer you see being beaten
1:26 pm
by the m. in the streets used to walk with me at the independent and is of a close friend to me so means a very emotional picture that you know that you have shown me yeah and as a journalist and sis and as a journalist when you see that and when you know that passing. do you feel that somehow something's gone wrong in uganda in the way that the media is even able to tell the story yes something is wrong what we're seeing are two things one the government has run amok the sense that the security forces seem to excise this a little restraint compared to previous times in the way they are trying to protests and to the government itself is absent because as you have said at the beginning of the show there is no government person to dissent the government on the show and even within uganda there is not what the only state of government provided in the explanation as to why the army and the police can act in such and
1:27 pm
precedent that brutality against the population. you know when you talk about brutality that i think is what a lot of people are noting online particularly of course when it comes to the man we talked about at the top of the show and you guys have both mentioned bobby wine who's in p. this is tony who treats the detention and torture of bobby wine is why we protest we demand the state to free bobby wine such of the excesses proper medication he's using that which has been used several times ninety seven thousand as of one day that was on tuesday and the number has only gone up talking about that and i want to pivot here to a tweet from our own correspondent this is katherine sawyer she says we spoke with edwin the way the winds brother says still in a lot of pain he has a ruptured kidney it's a broken toes and fingers the family will hold a press conference in the next twenty minutes to update on his condition rosabel
1:28 pm
the masses that we've seen on the streets the protests that have come out in support of bobby why do they surprise you at all. now they don't and i'm like under saying this is unprecedented not it's not unprecedented we have had several protests and we have seen brutality on our streets of compiler let's not forget during the twenty eleven walk to walk up to us one of the opposition leaders were almost blinded and that was including there were aspects of their of the of the security that executed that and this is not the first time we are seeing such a level of brutality the difference here is the sheer courage that young people are bringing to the streets and willing to go to the streets and if you notice that put this one not just in karbala they've been sporadic in sporadic in different parts of the country was in michiana town and there was today mourning in the eastern
1:29 pm
part of the country and as bobby wine is going to be already before the courts tomorrow there's upper haitian that's more is yet to come but we have not it's not new we have seen this kind of brutality and get a difference is maybe the large scale of treatment of journalists that the military is unafraid to do the type of to really beat journalists on camera and always saw not only jets i cannot but very many journalists some journalists were charged with inciting violence or simply being with their microphones and doing live coverage and consequently the media is not teepees are not giving us the coverage any mark of the events that are happening grace i see you nodding go ahead. yes that being. what we see it's not a new. ruling and it
1:30 pm
always ends up meaning you know running by polls we do not know why there's always a i don't know where all this started i don't know why and we. will election but what i love every time we have an election always running but was between the open the show and the police that are willing to support them in the opposition so it's . just. not being used so. it's just maybe you can borrow them for a new younger. grace and wrote i hear what you're saying so i want to give something to you actually because i hear what rosewell and grace are saying but there are a few people online not many in our community but a few who would disagree with them this is one person who says bobbie and his group have been intimidating and assaulting voters during elections it will restore sanity and uganda politics to have him out of the picture we won't accept intimidation and violence in our politics another person answering
1:31 pm
a question we asked why do you think bobby wine was arrested this person says he was inciting youths to stone the president's motorcade plus illegal possession of a gun things that his camp has denied but andrew what do you make of these two comments. well i have no evidence whatsoever that bobby wayne individually was inciting his supporters to sort of stones at the presidential motorcade neither do i have evidence that he had guns in fact i suspect that the guns were planted basically with this force is in his room less my suspicion but what they can say is that the people who protest against the government in uganda suddenly liberal democrats seeking a much more tolerant and the community government remember these are young people who are angry with whatever their reasons and the point is that expression of anger not an expression of the values. but i just want to come back we should remember
1:32 pm
that wherever there is a court this whether it is in sweden norway then it exists or in a country in the world the police and the protesters will look to be kissing and hugging each other in the streets that is rare why is it this is unprecedented and i'm happy. what is two thousand and eleven which is eight years ago is that i have not seen the uganda live there and police looking at generalists as targets of the attack was it went eleven when they beat the opposition politician the opposition politician according to such is a book that she's a listen to what specifically i get. that i could understand but what i see is a betrayal and restrained attacks on journalists who are covering this event they are not attacking protesters who are throwing stones at them who are throwing . october's at them attacking journalists holding to come at us and who are not
1:33 pm
even fighting back i find that unprecedented yes i have to say that probably one has been a guest on the stream not once but twice and we talked about his politics and talked about what it was like as something he was just an ordinary ugandan saying i want to be part of this political process it's almost as if one tracked down bay we could fool see the kind of trouble that he could get himself into then they means pieces have a little listen to the words of forty one i think every appropriate right now. we're not running. down our problems. at the moment. and your position isn't just about one musician town politician there is this this rising need for people to say we want something different for uganda but the winds politics you don't like them
1:34 pm
you know i don't. find their way into the drilling. but most especially his supporters i find them in color and i find them and democratic i find them and course because i had to have told you before these are the people who are saying we want uganda where there can be. tolerance they've lived in the ideas that you can have your own physician and decide what to do so great for them if you disagree with them with them they were abuses and you said it's up to you they will use what was said by bullying. to lie to blackmail to do practically everything in fact that's one word. that i mean that it's almost like you know about community you're talking. i should tell you grace actually interact logically with you and support us or menopause from activists via my social media platform and i don't want to go to everybody's house but what i see from them scares me as
1:35 pm
a pastor who's interested in open and free debate i'm sure there are military related ugandans out there who strongly believe that we need to have an environment where we can debate our disagreements in the city combine and agree to disagree but the answer you are trying to use very thing so i don't mind people's under and undermine our big section of society that is stuck right now and you cannot use a civility idea that just because you and i are city and top that the rest of the country when you say that every protestant in all of the world there's always some countries it's not true in uganda but speak it in the women's much in june and john touches that for the first time the police were not engaged with anybody and we managed to walk peacefully and we obeyed but often we see that the government whenever the people come the street it's because something has gone awfully wrong
1:36 pm
because the government controls who can go to the street and pretty much nobody we have a public order management here it's like begging for your right to protest so when we're seeing the people that are supporting bobby wine and expressing anger under is a very important feeling and whatever is in charge of this country must listen to that because under so i don't agree with you that just because people are under that they are not see for that they are not willing if given the state given their right to protest that they will not take it up now there are as well i don't mind. i don't want people being angry what i am saying is when those who are angry indulge in cyber bullying you slice slander intimidation lou. shut up with the opponents then that is not the type of expression of anger that would like to see people angry but agree that you can disagree a suit me if you can use the under power you have which is the power of. government
1:37 pm
to intimidate and certainly you are opponents if you get into power and that you have control of the instruments of coercion under pressure the police and would you like to different because you must understand that that is not that you could say is the government the fact that it does it is it really does work like that that a liberal democrat i think you are just picking the really a bit off a few supporters you have done this with the best you tend to say but every support every pretty much every open and the comes up just people who want to offer alternatives but once they are under people you can trust them with power when the money was ruling you gunner for thirty two years was i'm great now when he was young he too guns we're not trying to take your gun and i don't try to take guns they are looking for a way to express themselves and that has not been allowed to them that would just aside the fact you have managed to get people elected into parliament so you
1:38 pm
cannot discredit him as some question on the street that has no end yes money to the right of iran supporters and get get elected himself but includes the like you think you are right i hear what you're saying and you write here for years i want to jump in here because i want to bring in our unity and through someone online is hearing what you're saying and they stink about your idea of tolerance they trade in is meat maintain and maintenance of the status quo so that's one person who disagrees with your viewpoint but i hear what you are saying i want to push on just a little bit to this point because a couple people have raised this this is i will on twitter he says bobbie one represents a new wave of revolutionaries that the president thinks can pose a threat to his grip on power and he gives hope to the youth who would be. helpless that same theme is echoed in this facebook post this is madonna who says bobbi winds arrest has brought together the social classes that have been suspicious of each other in the past and in relation to what needs to be done about new seventies long stay in power it's reduce the chances of
1:39 pm
a class war in these time ends and now is a good time for players in the opposition and civil society to get their act together so grace i want to bring you in here on do you think that the government sees the wind as a threat and this is why we're seeing what we're seeing and relation to this facebook comment has this then brought people together against seventy. yeah i think. a lot of people together because already late you. love them and. then they feel for them or the middle class because the songs. you know almost everyone saw gives the government now seems the most bitter but because you sort of thing even without knowing. all just people in the most of those songs rule him campaigning and just you know presenting
1:40 pm
our so most of us. someone you on the blog so. written because the more young people are doing all remember more of the ruling government knows that some people will get more involved in politics then eventually there. will be a hard and it will go to the street probably forty in twenty twenty one so that's way more than a beautiful. let me share this with you this is from the president's twitter feed so have a look here on my laptop i won't start to you get here catch out here again let me just press play and this is the president here saying violence threats and intimidation in elections will not be tolerated this is his perspective of that local byelection that grace was telling us about a little bit earlier and this is where was the catalyst for a lot of the violence the comments underneath fascinating let me just stop one here steve says meena one spoke the way you are speaking now the army was a famous dictator in uganda please don't pick
1:41 pm

clings to power despite losing support in his party malcolm turnbull office a second leadership vote he once said he'd take a bullet for donald trump but now the president's former lawyer says he's ready to help the russia approach. saving the heritage the asian games helping to preserve some of the continent's unique and sports. a trade war between. and the u.s. has escalated once more in a new round of tariffs each has imposed twenty five percent taxes on billions of dollars worth of the other's products the u.s. is targeting chinese chemical electronic and industrial goods china has responded and is filing a complaint to the world trade organization well agent brown joins us live now from beijing agency yet another raft of u.s. tariffs on china but who is actually winning this trade war.
1:50 pm
well both sides claim to have the upper hand both sides claim to believe they can outlast the other certainly i think the narrative in the united states is that the chinese leadership perhaps underestimated the resolve the resolution of president donald trump to see this trade war through and to see it through for a long time if necessary the united states media seems to believe that the chinese leadership is facing a number of severe challenges right now and of course the trade war is top of that list and now the idea of president xi jinping being under this sort of pressure a year ago would have been unimaginable because back then he was about to be made not just president of china but also head of the military as well as party secretary but now the economy is starting to weigh heavily on the leadership because it's not just the tariff war that china is having to deal with at the moment daryn the economy is also starting to slow and you're seeing signs signs of
1:51 pm
a lack of confidence amongst consumers consumers are starting to spend less to tighten their belts they worry about not what is happening so much with a trade war now but what's going to happen in the future because also on the horizon are a number of red flags and one of the biggest red flags is debt china is sitting on a mountain of debt and that debt pile is going to get bigger because china's government is doing what it always does during times of economic difficulties it's turning on the credit tap to try to insulate its industries and businesses from the effects of this tariff war age and you talked a little bit about it but any more signs yet that these trade frictions are starting to hurt ordinary chinese consumers ordinary people. not that i really discern daryn remember at the moment the the tariffs on
1:52 pm
u.s. imports the tariffs that are in effect at the moment really only affect a fraction of what china exports to the united states what we have to watch out for is what could happen a few weeks from now because the united states trade representative office is currently hearing arguments for and against about imposing tariffs on some two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese imports now if that happens it would affect a whole range of consumer items and from things like candles to parts from bicycles bridal grounds that would start to affect the u.s. consumer here in china though you're seeing no sign of you know the economy imploding no sort of panic buying shops you know china's government continues to insist that its economy is growing if you believe those figures but as i say there is deep unease about what the future holds if this becomes

a decade cultivating with chinese wine merchants have now been ruined he saw in about twenty five other countries outside of the u.s. and china is certainly one of the top two or three after president donald trump placed tariffs on a range of chinese imports in march beijing retaliated with tariffs on u.s. agricultural products including wine growers protested but to no avail now u.s. wines are priced out of the chinese market compared with the fruits of chilean french and australian video the world is getting smaller you see great interest in the chinese culturally they want wine they want the finest things in life they know that not to buy produce some of the best wines in the world so we have this great opportunity but the government is putting this huge impediment in front of us it's not just growers here in california is wine country who are feeling the pinch all over rural america including many areas that heavily supported trump in two

1:56 pm
do so says if the motion is passed is treated as a vote of no confidence and he will stand as a candidate and says he wants to see a letter from his m.p.'s about his leadership before he makes his next move to the party room of course made on tuesday and confirmed my latest shit majority. we need to see that there is a majority of members mind they to put their names to. the momentous times and it's important that people are accountable for what they're doing so when i if assuming i get that letter which are great in the press. as is already in place but perhaps my view of this isn't we'll see but as soon as i get that mind tension is to held a party meeting at midday tomorrow when the party room meeting is cold will invite . a spill motion to be moved if the motion is carried i will treat that as a vote of no confidence and i will not stand as

a candidate in the ballot. well before a key meeting on friday the ruling party will examine advice from the australian solicitor general he's been asked to look into turnbull's main challenges eligibility to be prime minister peter dutton has business interests in child care centers which have received millions of dollars in government funding since twenty fourteen the opposition says that may rule the former immigration ministers claim to the prime minister's office out dutton has released his legal advice which he says clears him of any problems but eternal does step aside or is voted down it will be the fourth time a sitting australian prime minister has been ousted since twenty ten former prime minister and labor leader kevin rudd was replaced by his deputy julia dillard just months before the twenty ten election will rudd really took leadership from dillard in june twenty third team but his party was then beaten in that year's election by the liberals led by tony abbott but he lost the leadership of his party to malcolm turnbull in september twenty fifteen feet arch as political editor of the sydney

morning herald he says malcolm turnbull's eager to highlight legal problems peter dutton may face before you could ever become prime minister. well he's surrendering really to what he has called an internal peace a rickshaw in designed to try to bully the government further to the right he said that in the event that the dissidents can get a majority of. signatures on a petition to hold a special party meeting that he would call that meeting and that would be tomorrow and at that meeting he would contest the leadership against challenges we've heard from constitutional scholars that the case is a borderline case that it would need to be resolved by the high court which is the highest court in the land and not case for that to happen it would need to be referred to the high court or the mechanism to doing that is it needs to
1:59 pm
be referred by the parliament effectively the government itself would have to refer to one of its own members peter dutton the challenger for the leadership to the high court for a decision a process which will probably take weeks and maybe even longer so really what you heard there from not concerned with a deliberate effort to the county to dublin client to challenge him by by alerting people to the fact that in ny have a constitutionality problem so it was a clean cut effort with with that but also with his comment that doesn't move effectively made he didn't wind up in this context but he said that this was an effort by a minority to bully the government to move further to the right so he was doing a pretty good job of trying to spike the challenge. donald trump's former personal lawyer says he will assist the special investigation into russian meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. elections michael cohen pleaded guilty to breaking electoral laws on wednesday and
