2:22 am
their lives. antigovernment protesters are rallying for a second night in romania after more than four hundred demonstrators were injured in violence with police on friday many of the protesters in the capital the caressed are romanian migrants who have returned home to demonstrate against corruption police have denied that they used excessive force on friday when they deployed take gas and water cannon to disperse the protesters are joining me now is it a chance to is based in bucharest good to talk to you again kit thank you for joining us how would you say the protest today compares with the demonstration that we saw yesterday the very different protests by that major i mean last night's protests we had over a hundred thousand and from very early on there was tension there was at the barricades at the place there was a lot of pushing and people within the crowds trying to push back the barricades
2:23 am
and even from around seven here which is very early they were deploying to get as you said later came water cannons and more extreme measures tonight protests were much karma and there was a sense that they were trying to keep things less tense there were people sitting down in the crowds from show less confrontational approach there were maybe fifty thousand people is the estimates i'm staying and the period of time the whole grow so now back on the government building as you know a show of defiance against the government and they were asked him to resign but also you know again it's not it's a non-confrontational way of protesting and of the what we saw last night that was i think the most important thing and what about the government's response any indication that they are willing to take steps to address the protesters concerns. not not yet so throughout today we've had statements from leading people in the government and from those on the mahdi themselves who have defended the actions of
2:24 am
the of the riot police and saying that their actions last night and i was sent over four hundred people injured including about a dozen riot police but a lot of protests today injured a lot of tear gas and yet the police and the interior ministry and the prime minister come out and said that those actions were justified given given the nature of what it is that happened before and we have not seen any suggestion from any leading politician yet or from any of the polish political class that last night's protests or anything tonight will impact anything when it comes to legislative decisions or when it comes to anything any of the protests gravesites does grievances and if these protests are being driven mainly by romanians who live and work abroad who have returned home or presumably then they
2:25 am
will reach a natural conclusion because those people don't actually live there they won't be there indefinitely. well last night protests were a continuation of the these protests have been on a not eighteen months now they started last in february two thousand and seventeen when the government try to pass legislation or did in fact pass a note it's the legislation that effectively decriminalise low level corruption now that people took to the streets then and the government backed down but since throughout the last eighteen months we've seen continual efforts by the government to to to do to change legislation in ways that many people fear will we can rule of law and so last night's protests as you said was has been it was billed as the protests of the diaspora which number about four million. the protests have been going on for a long time without those people keep being involved last night was just
2:26 am
a chance for the people who remains living outside the country the whole also have their points so i think as you said those people will eventually go back to their the countries they now live in but i don't think that will have an impact on the numbers taking to the streets if the government continues to push through change a little place in that anger a significant percentage of the population so what does this mean the protests there likely then to continue. i think in the immediate short term the protests last night and the one again tonight we may see another couple of nights of protests getting a bit smaller each evening but no the protest movement in general will continue because the government is continuing to push the these measures that anger so many people and they were all something new to do that it looks like you know they show no sign of changing their policies and the protesters will continue to take to the streets so in the short term we will probably see
2:27 am
a protest against more of nights and all maybe one or two more nights and then maybe it will stop for a little while but in a month or two months chances are tens of thousands will be back in the streets once more thank you very much really interesting to get your thoughts and appreciate it kit get it joining us there from the crest. well now to zimbabwe where the supreme court has two weeks several on a legal challenge against president amazon and electoral victory main opposition party insists its leader won last week's vote but the ruling party zanu p.f. supporters say that the election was free and fair time a tacit reports from harare. it's the first time in zimbabwe's history the inauguration of a president has had to be postponed the main opposition leader nelson chamisa filed a court application on friday challenging president was election victory the move
2:28 am
to stop sunday swearing in ceremony from taking place well it basically means the country has to wait until it gets a president and that is dependent upon what the court says and takes a maximum of forty that is so that means of what has to it including the international community. leaders in the opposition m.d.c. alliance say the evidence they filed in court proves last month's vote the first since it was forced to resign as president was rigged they say nelson chamisa won we had an opportunity. to do things right. conduct and manage a free and credible election which is a very simple task but you have decided that it must not be a simple task by interfering in this a little process election officials deny allegations of voter fixing officials in the rulings on appear party say they are not worried about the court challenge they know they were there when. you committed serious so what's going to happen is going

in lebanon's northern because in recent years the government stop destroying the crops because it couldn't provide the impoverished population with alternatives now it is considering legalizing cultivation for medical use but some farmers are concerned it could cut profits. the high supply means it's not. so if the cultivation its will have no value we have. the trade for twenty years and they were against it now they want to do this to gain political support from the people who are fed up with the politicians. it's a multimillion dollar industry which an international consulting firm says could help lebanon struggling economy it would first have to introduce new seedlings that have medical properties a draft bill has been proposed in parliament proponent say the people of the region will benefit. a proposal to help farmers they have been the victims

they can't openly sell it because it's illegal so dealers benefit by imposing a price on the farmers selling the product for higher prices and those dealers have political cover if. it's not the first time the idea has been put forward and it may take months before parliament votes on the bill. farmers say they have little choice but to grow cannabis in order to survive people are poor and there are little economic opportunities they blame the authorities for neglecting their area the livelihoods of tens of thousands depend on this trade which is controlled by the region's powerful families growing cannabis is cheap and alternative crops can't survive the harsh climate here that is one reason why attempts to eradicate the cultivation after the civil war in the one nine hundred ninety s. failed there are those who believe the government should support this industry.
