exposing deep truths in denmark's adoption system. a witness documentary on al-jazeera. saying you have no idea what it means for me to be here together with all of you. brazil's former president lula da silva is freed from jail after a supreme court ruling. i'm stan grant this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. a wave of anger on the streets of chile a day after the president announced tougher measures against violent protest. iraq's top clear it calls for more protesters who killed there in clashes with
security forces a ring of fire fears bush files will get even worse as people rush to get out of their homes. until a police of firing tear gas and water cannon at protesters who were throwing rocks in response. this was the scene in the capital santiago just an hour ago demonstrations 1st began over a hike in metro affairs but have now spiraled into widespread anger against government economic policies more than 20 people have been killed nearly 2000 others injured in violence over the past few weeks allen american editor lucien human is live in the capital city i've got 3 weeks of those previous protests now
and we're continuing to see this tension grow. absolutely stan we're now entering day 23 of these protests there continuing it's been a very very tense day indeed while tens of thousands of people are gathering peacefully in. the main area of midtown santiago called. on the periphery there were groups of people wearing masks. throwing stones and trying to destroy private and public property looting the most significant incident was when they set fire to a mansion that's more than 100 years old that houses the university of. fire trucks tried desperately to get there but barricades have been built all around there are some of the protesters tried to help the firefighters when they finally managed to arrive but the building has been consumed by the blaze in fact
many of the protesters have tried to appeal to these violent groups to please join the peaceful protests but to no avail in fact and right where i'm standing now there was a confrontation a short while ago between some of the residents and another small group that tore down street signs set fire to a rubbish bins and other things right behind me the the fire fighters just a short while ago were here and put out the blaze that was a barricade in this part of the town so this is happening in many parts of the city and in the country right now and it happened just as president peña. less than 48 hours rather after stamping it out announced what he called measures to try to stop what he describes as organized crime violence. you're about supposed. to stop this violence we look at the 3 weeks that these protests have been running we've seen consistent from piñera rejected by the protesters we've seen
a crackdown an investigation. it's abuses and still we see this momentum and more and more people on the streets how is this going to play out. i don't know i can't answer that but what i can tell you is that the human rights charges continue in fact the health minister for the 1st time conceded today that many of the injuries that we're seeing would can be classified as abuses of human rights are a lot of people injured tonight from bullets fired by the riot police shotguns and rubber coated. bullets as well pellets but there also there's also a lot of vandalism a lot of looting and nobody knows how to stop that there is a moment of movement calling for people to get together to propose much deeper more profound reforms than the ones that the president has offered so far today
a very significant one was announced by the minister of finance who signed an agreement with the opposition parties or most of them at least to raise taxes on the richest 2 percent of chileans this is quite significant but not enough clearly to stop these protests from continuing because people of calling for far more profound social reforms than the ones that they're being offered at least up until now because we see a thank you for that joining us live there from santiago now to brazil and with the defied the former president has walked out of prison after 19 months. of the was supported surrounded. in the city of probate or a judge ordered his release after brazil's top court ruled to end mandatory jail time for convicted criminals who have lost their 1st appeal who was sentenced to more than 12 years in jail ahead of last year's presidential election the.
above now. you have no idea of the significance for me to be here with you i who my whole life talked with the brazilian people never thought that today i could be here talking with men and women who during the past 580 days were here saying good morning lula good afternoon lula and yelling good night lula no matter if it were raining if it were 40 degrees or 0 degrees. valentyn assad is with the atlantic council's latin america center and she says despite lula being barred from running for office he is likely to use his strong base of support that he continues to have his supporters are still very much engaged with him and see in him a central figure for the life that he is definitely someone that is bringing a changing point to a deal left in brazil this is a inflection point for the left in brazil and they would take less release and is
this just momentum to actually unify themselves in this industry. fight that they have for social causes and inequality in brazil and i think that this is also a year of lay's definitely not going to be able to engage in public in politics not going to be able to be a politician himself again or run for anything political but he's definitely going to be a vocal voice in the political scene in brazil let's talk more about this now to raise a bar in são paulo to raise a fur defied figure still a very popular figure how is this going to play in brazil. well that's what many people here are wondering about what happened today when love as he left the prison with his fist up high in a way proclaiming victory he also said that he's ready to fight it's not clear yet
how he's going to do it because in brazil because of what is called known as the clean slate he would be banned from running for office and that's why he's asking not totally to be happy to be released from prison but also he wants all of those cases against him to be canceled and that's has been one of the calls that he wants to be proclaimed innocent a little fever left a prison today as i said before with his fist up high he told people that they were the voice of democracy there were hundreds of his supporters out there he told them that when he was imprisoned they were trying to kill an idea not only a human being and he also attacked the federal police the judiciary among others saying that he had been in a sense all along about the trial against him has been flawed in the law was imprisoned last year he was accused of receiving bribes from an engineering company in exchange for public works contracts as i said before he's been insisting that
he's innocent but in spite of this all of this investigation was part of the car wash over option investigation that was handled by the very controversial judge here in brazil known as federal model who went from being a hero or who is a hero for many of the people you talk to here in brazil to being by many of manipulating many of the cases that he's handled model is right now the minister of justice here in brazil is very close to joey to natter on many say that lula was imprisoned in order to help boards on how to become president because of what happened this day brazil is more polarized than ever and we do know that this saturday there's going to be protests against against the supreme court's ruling but also lula will be arriving here to some but not of the where he's from where thousands and thousands of people will be waiting for him. there is about live from sao paulo now to iraq and 17 rockets have landed close to an army base this south

this country. here in and around but that is to hit a square a cross-section of society in every direction a span of generations the elderly taking great enjoyment in teaching the young the importance of this moment when you're sincere more than anything else is the result of protesters committed to coming out day after day demonstrators with herman to affect trade doing for sure a better future for it off and on. the scale of these demonstrations is unprecedented the mood in some areas positively joyful yet activists tell us this movement couldn't be more serious and they believe things are far different this time and you know a lot of that in previous protests it's been limited to the youth but with these protests after our youth were killed we felt the need for all of us to come out when men and men elderly people the young and even children have come up with these
protests now everyone wants change many here also lend a helping hand some brew and give away a. while others like the distribute flyers advising protesters out to stay safe and we all have rights in this country and if we don't act like no one is going to get whether or not government officials ultimately understand the magnitude of these protests makes no difference to that area who says protesters will not be deterred we've done it again that would be and runs by you and they say go back to arsenal continue your life everything will be all my new life still going to be all over many of our friends are natalie's getting die here this is not going to be all over until we had our ice here and now and all keys are raising their voices like never before some scenes like the one put on by this street theater group are showcasing iraq's plight in ever more creative ways as a country bullied by regional and international allies fighting hard to stand on

trump released a transcript of the call he says shows no wrongdoing he's considering releasing a 2nd transcript of another call with the korean president back in april i had a call. your was 500 you know i have a lot of balls but i have no problem relates to get a bird friends very democrats allege just the opposite. there's a heck of a lot of evidence of the presence of the people francis but we have to give a fair hearing as they try to be open minded in there and say next week the world will hear publicly from key witnesses in this investigation one of them bill taylor has confirmed privately what donald trump has vehemently denied that trump tied ukraine aid into an investigation into former vice president joe biden can really help get al-jazeera the white house the world bank. to form a new cabinet quickly libeling the country's ongoing instability as deeply concerning they've been more than 3 weeks of protests as demonstrations call for
