11:05 am
which is getting a lot of air time right now so i find myself a cynic because we have seen equally horrific moments equally painful social upheaval massive marches in washington d.c. and absolutely nothing happened and i don't see anything happening until there's a change in congress. plenty more ahead on the news hour including venezuelan government supporters protest against tough new sanctions while opposition. backs the measures while no deal. coming up later the chairman of german football club. temporarily. puerto rico's new governor has been sworn in the 3rd person to hold office in less
11:06 am
than a week the appointment of justice secretary follows weeks of political turmoil in the u.s. territory vasquez replaces pedro pier after the supreme court ordered his appointment as unconstitutional well some say vasquez is being too close to former governor ricardo rosie o. he stepped down last week after protests triggered by a scandal over a fence of text messages and corruption. political uncertainty really continuing here with puerto rico on its 3rd governor in less than a week the governor now on the vasquez as of a few days ago said she didn't even want the job of governor she's only there because she's obligated to as a minister of justice she's next in line in succession to take over the governorship so now this island of 3000000 people as a governor that someone that didn't even want the job really this all matters because puerto rico as a territory of the u.s. really relies on washington d.c.
11:07 am
and washington has said they could withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in money that's meant for the puerto rican government and that's for the puerto rican people in till this political crisis is resolved in a lot of people on the streets here said this was about someone that they viewed as a corrupt governor that was a. c.e.o. who's now out of office but they also said this was about health and education services that they want and now many puerto rican cyr on the streets are saying that they took to the streets by the hundreds of thousands of people to call for a new governor and they got one now 2 since the one before is out of office they called for change they're now asking is this the change they really wanted. venezuela's government says it's a pause in negotiations with the opposition because of u.s. sanctions the latest are an attempt to cut off funding for president. opposition
11:08 am
into one quite those supports measures saying they put pressure on what he called dictatorship a correspondent or as a boss sat down with why the us. venezuelans government's response to recent u.s. sanctions supporters of. gathered in central caracas to denounce what they say is a brutal embargo by the united states. on monday u.s. president donald trump signed an executive order banning u.s. companies from doing business in venezuela he seized venezuelan assets in the u.s. and threatened foreign powers and companies doing business in this country we met with opposition leader who has been challenging my buddhist government he says the sanctions i meant to pressure mother little into some sort of negotiation the united states has announced sanctions there's already sanctions on. there's already sanctions on over 100 individuals from the government what do you think this new
11:09 am
sanctions will achieve in a law. venezuelan capital has flooded the world economy it is estimated and it's a wide guess because of the magnitude of theft around $300.00 to $600000000000.00 was stolen from the venezuelan people to put it into context that's 10 times or 15 times the marshall plan in europe after the 2nd world war they are part of the money laundering circuit these sanctions are meant to put pressure on a dictatorship and it's a tool of the free world of modern diplomacy to pressure a regime with the characteristics of material that have relationships with drug trafficking proven in international courts. functions like this once have been implemented in north korea and iran and their leaders are still in power and the population is poor suffering why do you think it's going to be different this time but i mean the order of the problems we face today are not the sanctions it's the
11:10 am
dictatorship the reason why even israel is poor today is because the expropriated fertile land and did not grow anything in it they destroyed national production they stole productive land created fake exchange controls and internal sanctions that persecuted people that is what keeps venezuela poured the sanctions that have human rights abusers teves and corrupt officials as an objective are meant to pressure a dictatorship i don't want to compare the case with cuba iran and north korea or syria i don't know if the opposition had a role in those countries how long they controlled parliament previous to the sanctions if there were thousands of people on the street each case is different and use tools like diplomatic pressures sanctions and protests in venezuela isolating any of these are a mistake. you're talking about talk about negotiations that are happening right now what what can we expect. when it's not as. it's
11:11 am
a relative question what can we expect from a dictatorship nothing what can we expect of human rights abusers nothing but we can do our pressures we are implementing of being the majority of institutional pressure we could find a solution in alternative to the conflict venezuelans are living in we are skeptical because they have laughed at us in the past but we have to cover all spaces and find a solution that doesn't mean the government wins time. why though for now discards the possibility of a military intervention in spite that he says all options are on the table. 7 but government supporters say there and direct attack now and say they need to be ready for what may come they say the sanctions will not only heard the government but waiting crease the hardships they're already facing every day. the president off on the us is under pressure from protesters to resign while in orlando hernandez denies allegations of accepting bribes from illegal drug gangs 6
