on climate change she had a meeting with leaders from some of the world's worst polluters. and the foreign language maybe that could just break new ground because race that's not so black and white. so threats between venezuela and the united states are going to another level just hours before a planned protest president nicolas maduro says that he's ordered a quote revision of diplomatic relations with the united states that's in response to u.s. vice president might pence cleri support for demonstrators and opposition leaders so let us as this report. energized protest isn't caracas rally the a movement hoping to push the president from power. out with the usurper as. rest
happened last year our armed forces the country soldiers many of them began to demonstrate their own happiness and today there are over four hundred officers in jail who have been tortured simply for raising their voices against the regime has broken the constitutional order. venezuela's opposition has momentum over the weekend twenty seven soldiers rebelled against the government they were later to tank by security forces. and on monday they moved through crosses streets with pots and pans a statement that reverberated all the way to the white house i'm mike pence the vice president of the united states and on behalf of president donald trump and all the american people let me express the unwavering support of the united states is you the people of venezuela raise your voices in a call for freedom nicolas maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power. he's never won the presidency in
a free and fair election and he's maintained his grip of power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him while protesters and the opposition have a powerful enough vocal ally the juror countered with a t.v. interests of his own he warned vandals who attempt to cultural seem to named off the role of sarah the late socialist politician the little member of that you're going to capture them all they all went to prison and that's mum penalty for the fascists hard hand to hand of steel the jurors vice president then took direct aim at the us. simply because mr pence doesn't have a job now he wants to come and run venezuela handing out instructions on what should happen in venezuela openly calling for a coup d'etat in venezuela i will say it like the venezuelan people would say to you yankee go home. on wednesday the race or it will be challenged on the streets it's the end of the story of the full of venezuela's military government in one
nine hundred fifty yanks the opposition mocks it with nationwide marches but they say this year it's maturer who needs to go. ballasts al-jazeera while we can speak now turn turn him over who's a latin america analyst joins us on skype from miami mr mora welcome to the program pressure appears to be mounting and we have this protest planned for later today wednesday where is this heading do you think. tomorrow maybe the biggest demonstrations yet nic it really seems like we may be seeing a perfect storm in venezuela here with this many rebellion there was yesterday among the military of which there has been very little so far and the protests that followed were centered in the western side of gattaca which is the poorest sorry side of the city that part of the city did not immediately join on mass in the big demonstrations there were in twenty seventeen if they had maybe nigger nigger also a little might not be in that position where he is today the government certainly
fears any kind of a military uprising but it also fears a total loss of support of the people from the poorer sections go out onto the streets this could be a very significant problem for my douro and by all estimations that i'm hearing tomorrow may be the largest protest the country has a receipt ok was plenty to talk about on that front you mentioned the minute change what she'll send we seeing if it the tending to changes. nick it's a tough situation in the military there because the moderate government has co-opted the generals there are an incredible number of generals and they've been given responsibility for everything from the oil industry to the distribution of food so the higher level officers have a very strong incentive to continue in power and to be distasteful keep the government where it is the problem is that the economy is so disastrous that the rank and file members are suffering and they're definitely seeing their extended
families who do not have any military benefits suffering a people are going hungry some of your rank and file officer in that as well a military and you're seeing your cousins and your aunts and your grandparents suffering it becomes a much more serious issue so i think the pressures inside the military are growing the problem again is that the generals have a self-interest in sustaining this government and there's also cuban intelligence is very heavily involved in venezuela and so far any kind of. noises made by any generals or colonels they have been frequently put behind bars very quickly if there are protests on a very big scale on wednesday and the question in the fair is just how the authorities deal with them. that is one of the great fears the national guard the group of national guardsmen who were the ones who rebelled yesterday were i guess on monday your time they were yesterday your time. so it's not clear whether the
national guard will be available to repress people but there is also the the police and what's worse groups called decoding the rules these are i thought was that are armed by them with their own government and the government and the studs really have the monopoly on power or have a monopoly on on weapons on force so if they do go out and repress these protests violently i really fear for what could happen to them as well to tell you more a great hit perspective preached very much thank you nic thank you the wife of an anti-government activists arrested in sudan has told out zero she's had no wood on her husband's whereabouts so in these american the road when the wood was detained by security agent six days ago in the capital khartoum his wife nancy says he was preparing to take part in a demonstration the next day to us and students have been protesting since last month calling for the resignation of the president bashir demonstrations began after the government raised the price of bread well nancy that would says her
husband is a peaceful activist and she's in the united states to help free and i do hope that they will put pressure on the sudanese government to be able to assist in his early definitely counting on them with any leverage we have with the sudanese government to make sure that that happens as quickly as possible along with the release of all of the other political detainees. he's always been a peaceful protest or he is. has been concerned for many years about the state of sudan and he has been trying to bring change. the voice of all the sudanese are really crying for freedom for peace and for justice. no ruler should be in control for thirty years so i'm really calling now for omar al bashir to step down. as
a dictator that has been exploiting and oppressing the people for for many years well the president general bashir has saying today to hold to meet cultism is it is bush's first overseas trip since protests begun last month even more good his latest notion or to. what happened is of students from the university of what to me are here in front of them came out early this morning and protested against the president on one of the shia who as you said is not currently in the country but they were very keen and very determined to continue protesting if not for the response of by the probe by the security forces tear gas was once again fired at the students inside the university campus and they were complaining about difficulty breathing something we've heard from protesters who have been demonstrating over the past four weeks people have been saying that security forces were responding using excessive brutal forest road streaming live an emission and tear gas being fired at protesters to try to disperse them people have been injured opposition groups say forty seven have been killed but activists who have been tracking this say at least fifty people have been killed since the protests started
now the government is this hearing that figure they say only twenty seven have been killed and that the figures that the activists are giving is not true but there are also people who have been arrested and the government said there were a state eight hundred sixteen sixteen people but activists again want to get to say that at least one thousand people have been arrested including an american asad needs american activist who was arrested who went missing as you said on wednesday and we spoke to his family al-jazeera spoke to his family and they say people who were arrested with him and later released have reported that he has been severely beaten and desperate need of medical attention brazil's new president is laid out the welcome mat for big business and major investors at the world economic forum and doubles climate change on the digital revolution or among the issues but the focus is also been on some leaders who are not work journal reports nor from those . a chill has settled over down ass and that's not just the weather leaders of some of the world's biggest economies china the united states france and the u.k.

a vast limitless expanse it is actually a very fair and shell. actually this is about being on the right side of history do you want to be a leader that you look back in time and say that you were on the wrong side of the argument when the world was crying out for a solution you know and it's as simple as. well as a ramon as the former head of international climate with friends of the earth and he says global warming is a big threat to the world economy economy the world economic forum's or no report just before the divorce began said exactly that that this climate change was with the number one threat to the global economy but prior to that we've got to remember that clients climate scientists have been ringing the alarm bells at just one degree warming the world are seeing killer droughts floods famines it's devastated the lives and livelihoods of millions of people around the world and so climate
change is not something that's going to happen in the future is actually happening now and the start warning that they're given is that the decisions we make in this next decade will determine if we breach the critical guardrail of one point to five degree moment which will trigger the changes in humanity itself that will lead to species extinction forced millions of people from their homes lead to collapse of our food systems and yet we're on track for a warming of the planet of a least three to seven degrees warming it's madness. but the most allowed on the news hour including. this show. to tell this is. the fear of speaking out now and zimbabwe's president vows to investigate accusations of assault and torture. but worries about internal engine tinian footballer who is about to join an english premier league club. rafael nadal is into the semifinals of the strain i showed how he got there in sport.

and a three extension of temporary protected status a proposal at present trump that will consider here in the senate is the only proposal the only one currently before us that can be signed by the president and immediately reopen the government. but the proposal has been rejected by the democratic party leadership the president and his team have tried to spin this proposal as a reasonable compromise with concessions to democrats that defies credulity the second bill is similar to those passed by the democrat controlled house. which provides short term funding for the department's now shut down but excludes any provision for the wall this would require the backing up at least thirteen republican senators to meet the sixty vote threshold ny the bill is likely to pass the senate despite another plea by the leader of the house open government open the government let's talk cannot have the president and the time he has an

policy introduced in april they say the children were held in more than one hundred detention centers away from their parents the lawsuit claims the separation was a deliberate way to deter families from migrating castro has more now from washington d.c. . the lawsuit points to this secret draft memo written by government officials more than a year ago but only leaked to the public last week as the so-called smoking gun the memos titled policy options to respond to border surge of illegal immigrants well this was written at a time when illegal border crossings were actually at a historic low and they remain so to this day and it appears to lay out the trouble ministrations discussions at the time of how to specifically target family units for apprehension and appears to expose the claim of senior administration officials and of donald trump the president himself who seemed to insinuate that the family
separations were in under ten unintended or at least unavoidable consequence of prosecution of adults rather this memo says that the plan was to prosecute the parents and to separate the children it goes on to say the increase in prosecutions would be reported by the media and it would have substantial deterrent effect the memo also lays out an option to deny children who are detained the legal right to asylum hearings and it puts in black and white the consideration of using children who are detained essentially as bait to catch their family members who are already in the country illegally we've heard anecdotes of that happening across the country but here it spells out that that had been the attend the intention because when children are in this government detention centers and the call goes out for sponsors or family members to take custody of them then those family members who

but again you're watching out there a reminder of our top stories to venezuela's president nicolas maduro says he's ordered a revision of diplomatic relations with the united states that's a response to vice president mike pence declaring support for opposition leader. whose call in venezuela is to join an anti government protest on wednesday. the wife of an anti-government activists arrested in sudan has told dr she's had no word on her husband's whereabouts sudanese american red one wood was detained six days ago nancy don't do surgery the united states to help free him. climate change and the digital revolution are among the major issues being discussed on day one of the world economic forum in davos but leaders from china the united states france and britain are not attending well the media of freedom has also been discussed at
the forum including the killing of the saudi journalist american soldier he wrote for the washington post newspapers executive editor that's marty baron says not enough international pressure has been put on riyadh for the murder. we're disappointed with what the saudi government did first of all this was. walk into a diplomatic mission to obtain documents for is. imminent and marriage and he was brutally murdered murdered he was dismembered his body still hasn't been found the saudi government said from the beginning that he walked out freely that they did nothing and we learned later that in fact he was he was murdered and so and today we feel that there hasn't been full accountability for that for that murder and we don't feel that the u.s. government has brought enough pressure on the saudis we don't feel that other governments of the brought in of pressure on the saudis because of this and i think
that you know we have to take a look at well why was he murdered he was murdered for expressing an opinion and opinion that at times was contrary to the official opinion of the of the saudi government and we also have to look at well how do we know what actually happened there because the saudi government are richer than mislead the light about what happened what occurred there and the reason that we know about that is because of a free press a press that investigated this that which which was persistent that tried one earth the facts and did on earth the facts and then ultimately the saudi government needed to acknowledge that in fact a team of individuals went from saudi arabia to turkey to istanbul with the express purpose of murdering murdering them and that's why we need a free press is to is to dig deeply and to hold people accountable and so we're dissatisfied along the way obviously dissatisfied with the brutal murder and horrified by beautiful brutal murder of one of our colleagues dissatisfied that the

a tit for tat forward the united states in the afghan government is doing to the taliban so the taliban are i think they're coming out of that hibernation radio. they are trying to carry on the same policy where do going to inflict damage to the african government and its international counterparts and talks are underway in doha where the taliban has a political office u.s. special representative for afghan peace zalmai is meeting senior taliban members here. the talks underway to find and to the war in afghanistan and establish a unity government the u.s. envoy recently told the region seeking help from allies including pakistan and in many ways the role of pakistan is key the u.s. negotiator ambassador zalmay holland was just in pakistan for several days before he went to doha and the pakistani prime minister imran khan is visiting doha as
