9:01 pm
all position a leader leads a convoy of aid trucks he says must cross into the country. where the. scuffles at the voting booth as polling hours are extended in nigeria. and from street kids to war romance how this year's oscar nominated foreign films draw from real life. it has been a day of fast moving developments in venezuela where protests have broken out across the country this saturday people have been filling the streets of venezuela's capital in demonstrations for and against president nicolas maduro opposition leaders have been trying to move aid supplies into the country in defiance of medusa in the town of venezuela near the border with colombia protesters threw rocks and burned tires troops responded with tear gas soldiers
9:02 pm
loyal to my are stationed along the country's edges to block a deliveries for members of the national guard to have defected. opposition leader why don't has sent off an aid convoy of trucks from colombia towards the border with venezuela for the convoy departed quite a spoke from the border town of cuckoo tar where u.s. aid has been stored there mo well i mean that. this is a landmark point in our history to allow the humanitarian aid to get in and to allow prosperity we must respect the human rights of the venezuelan people to the generals and all the countries that have formed this coalition the aid that's been sent in we are turned lee grateful to you we're here at the friendship bridge and this is where all of our people have come together to help venezuela this humanitarian aid is going into the country peacefully to save lives latin america editor newman is in san antonio on the venezuelan side of the border to see what is
9:03 pm
the latest that you've been seeing and hearing there. even though my sense was that i had been coming down once here with the paramilitary groups very very probably has been shooting at protesters i'm out an hour ago they managed to disperse is huge convoy of some six hundred members of the opposition led by opposition deputies and even the governor on the side to that they were also the position they were there didn't i that was very there is the entrance to the bridge. by the customs officers as that we were able to actually break down the lead person barrier the national guard with one we saw them play again shortly after his . role prevented literally. print cycles wearing masks and very heavily armed again shooting at everybody and they have been roaming around ever since we
9:04 pm
saw him leave people injured do taken away then. both for and given to tried to get near the area where we are right now where enough will be. taken cover and the couch. they didn't pay me and they were also pushed to move away by these paramilitary groups and so it's a very very tense situation here and at this hour we are seeing that across the street some of these mass men are back to lower their looting and shop that's what's happening right here at this hour. all right lucy thanks for that latin america. live for us and there on the phone from san antonio on the venezuela side of the border with colombia and a sandra ramp yeti is in cuckoo time on the colombian side of bring us up to date on what was happening there.
9:05 pm
some we're standing right in front of the bridge you should be able to see behind me the supporters of the venezuelan oppositions the volunteers who are trying to move the. venezuela who are clashing with the collective with syrians who are in support of president nicolas maduro and also clashing with of any sort of national guard that's been throwing rubber bullets and the tear gas on the protesters on the bridge for over an hour now roughly an hour ago. big amount of people two or three tauzin volunteers tried to occupy the bridge they were talking right in the middle of the bridge with divinest where on guard when they were pushed back and right in front of me at the entrance of the bridge there are the first four trucks field loaded with. the center by the united states the
9:06 pm
idea here was to be able to form my human chain on the bridge and then make space for the trucks to go through but so far those efforts have been frustrated by live in a sort of national guard in these collective oh groups. all right i was some thrown around here to lie first there in kuta thanks for that one how my german jew me is in park or i may in brazil near the border there with venezuela. we understand a couple of aid trucks were able to get in earlier were more can tell us about that . well how them exactly if you look you know behind me there's two two white trucks with some people sitting on top of those trucks directly behind me on the venezuelan side of venezuela's border with brazil those are the two aid trucks that we have been talking about not a not a huge amount of aid on these trucks several boxes we're told they comprised of
9:07 pm
medical aid as well as food stuffs also we saw members of a venezuelan humanitarian group distributing water bottles and some of the aid that's on these trucks to some of the migrants that have gathered here at the border throughout the day now as these trucks each one of them in the past several hours crossed into venezuela before stopping on the side of the road they were greeted really as almost heroes the crowds that were here which were much larger at the time were cheering for them then we heard spontaneous chants why many of those assembled calling for the ouster of an israel and president nicolas maduro now this is all quite different than what we were expecting to see today and the reason for that is because brazilian officials have been indicating over the past forty eight to seventy two hours that there was perhaps going to be a convoy of brazilian vehicles bringing more aid from the city of which is the capital of this northern how i'm a state that it would take this road come up to here drop this aid here at this
9:08 pm
point at this crossing in this no man's land as you will and that then this venezuelan convoy organized by the venezuelan opposition would attempt to enter into brazil and pick up his aid and take it back into venezuela the brazilian have been very clear since they first made this announcement that as much as they were going to do was to basically be bringing aid right here and dropping it at this point and that it was going to be up to the venezuelan to come in and get that aid take it back in to his will of that of course have been frustrated by the fact that venezuela's border with brazil is officially close it has been for about a day and a half and once again i'm just going to point behind me because beyond where these two white vehicles are. that way there is a line of about ten to twenty venezuelan security forces they have been standing there since president maduro ordered to the border to be closed to prevent any convoy of vehicles that are organized by the opposition of israel to come in to brazil to pick up any aid now all that being said because this is somewhat
9:09 pm
complicated despite the fact that the border on the venezuelan side. and despite the fact that efforts to pick up aid from here and take it deeper into venezuela are of course complicated we must remember that this border is vast and this border is porous now i'm not sure exactly how much you can see behind me but to the right into the left to me there are hills and the migrants that have still been crossing into brazil today even though they can't come much of the time through here past those security forces they will go around they will go around hills up hills through the brush then come into brazil where they were greeted by members of the brazilian military they were given water they were given food we spoke to one woman who brought a several of her children earlier she said they had walked least five hours from venezuela to get to brazil they said the situation is really deteriorating there and she said that they were harassed by venezuelan security forces who prevented to try to prevent them from crossing the border hausen oh and how many. in.
9:10 pm
brazil near the border with venezuela i would joining us now to talk more about this is jennifer mccoy via skype in prague she is the director of the global studies institute at georgia state university and also of the book international mediation in venezuela thanks very much for being with us so what do you what do you make of what's been happening in venezuela very very responsive venezuela over the last few hours because at the moment it doesn't look like there is much in the way of mediation going on. i know exactly this was a high stakes gamble on the part of the u.s. and the opposition to bring that aid with a lot of attention a lot of public attention to the border and to hope that there would be a break within the military the national guard to allow it in and that this would
9:11 pm
be you know a strong signal to motherhood oh that he was losing faith what we've seen is that it's been messy and in some cases the national guard are holding firm and others they seem to be butting at three or even defecting. the danger i think is that report of the games that known as the collect t.-bo those who are more willing to use force and violence in arms that this could create you know loss of life clashes between opposition supporters and these collective so that's the really unpredictable part and also even on the opposition when they lose. faith in the peaceful means and you know and begin to use a little bit more you know throwing the rocks and setting fires that that both of these things are sort of out of control of the leaders on either side as people get frustrated and you know take actions themselves so this is the real risk that we
9:12 pm
could see more violence and and deaths but in terms of the political shift that's where it really depends on if there's a wholesale change within the national guard in the military to. refuse to keep the border closed to refuse to oppress protesters have an opposition and instead to let the aid in that would be a major shift so far we have not seen that indeed so far we haven't seen that with we've we've seen them a century just a trickle of a handful of officers who have defected do you see that any indication that that might grow at all over the next couple of days. it certainly could grow you know we have to keep in mind too that these officers are great one their rage at losing the benefits that they may have as it is even bags of food for their own families but two because of the strong intelligence within the military and national guard that
9:13 pm
is monitoring this or many words that is monitoring their behaviors and if they are caught you know not following orders or trying to defect to the other side and if they're caught they will be severely punished so there's fear even among those who may want to defect or refuse to obey orders. as well. what do you say to that to those who have been saying i mean the situation in venezuela for so many people there is is pretty dire us economically and in so many other ways shortages of all kinds of essential medicines and food and so on which is why so many people have left what do you say to those who who argue that people like one guy i don't know and that the colombian president and other leaders around the region are are simply are not helping the situation and are just provoking the situation inside venezuela
9:14 pm
. because that this is something that has to be resolved by venezuelans themselves . well there's been an argument that this kind of effort is politicizing humanitarian aid and said there been some concerns among humanitarian aid organizations that this threatens their work generally within the country and even you know internationally any time aid is used in it for a political agenda so there has been that concern raised we also have to keep in mind though that you know this but this was a an attempt to peacefully press the venezuelan government and the military to change course we have to keep in mind that nicholas might bhutto has used food as a political weapon in terms of granting food and food bags to his own supporters and withholding it from those who oppose him and so he has already used it as
9:15 pm
a political weapon and as as you said this situation is dire for many millions many millions of people with and that this way less so we need to see this result we need to see the talks going on hopefully the international contact group made up of european the latin american countries can begin to facilitate the agreements that are needed to move the situation forward toward elections and that could also facilitate an agreement to allow this humanitarian aid in but right now we're in the middle of this political standoff both sides are trying to make a political point and it's difficult to say exactly where it's going to end up in the next couple of days yeah it is so anybody's guess at this point where and how one of the stars plan presented talking to us jennifer mccoy speaking to us there from prague thanks very much for being with us i want to cross live now to the venezuelan capital caracas where the venezuelan president nicolas maduro and south

9:23 pm
indeed even finished by now but a lot of others among the one hundred twenty thousand polling stations across the country didn't open on time and have had to have their voting hours extended with a number of technical issues difficulties along the way and reports of course from various parts of the country of violence and intimidation well i'm standing in the situation room. that's the leading civil society vote monitoring organization here in and joining me is something new toto executive director of yog assumption it's been a long day but in many ways your job here monitoring the results is just beginning you're getting i understand reports of more incidents of intimidation how serious of these been throughout the day and how much of a affected the result once and it is when along the way we'll be having a long night because attorney endless morning based on the detail received from observation only forty one percent of the installations that will put out ten am
9:24 pm
this morning and that leads responsible for a reasonable time of the two hours that will lead to a commission to use what we've got critical incidents are quite disturbing we've got observers who are brilliant sunni data. who are there on the narrow scope and detained at some point we also have what us will be intimidated we've seen the military one of the states on multiple soon you'll be for instance actually shot down a young male. to game. lections you leave growth rates going to the court to lagos where the. election materials were on time destroyed the body count aside this moments allow fifteen and that's totally unacceptable for them and it's like setting up this point is it too early to say how much these insurgents have played and affected the overall outcome of the election the credibility of the election is it too early i don't think it's too
9:25 pm
early but you come potentially on the mind the integrity of these elections and one of the things where do not do i gotta go watch of the world data center is because this article conclusion of calls the particular incidents i presume ray gets him includes reports about. the shows who have been intimidated even at gunpoint results sheets are being retrieved from only a few shots in a state like room of us so we're very disturbed i would hope that the electoral commission would take serious does reports on where days needs to council elections and where in places where violence is taking place then the electoral commission should do so and come out of nigeria and i tell major around that the see so you just go back and something of course the next critical function of your operation here is to ensure that the vote counts that take place on the ground which we saw at that not they are manual they are very public and transparent that those counts are accurately transferred speculation centered because traditionally that's the
9:26 pm
moment when numbers can be inflated more deeply yes we're deploying the power of good stuff but civility and we've got our jobs are going to we train our kollek to do what you call ground zero not insult from the polling station what we i'm allies yeah results from our sample of the station from results from one thousand and five for about fifteen sample calling stations who will be in a good position in the next couple of things to actually verify the accuracy of the results that a bad electoral commission. if the electoral commission wants to place any results that is not in the selection of what transpired at the polling station. the cup p.v.t. will detect the floor and because we're talking a web beholden to not a we're forming just will come out and told us where are the results of play by the electoral commission it's not true it's almost total thank you so much for joining us so samson they're heading up this pretty impressive operation iago civil society

9:29 pm
make situation is not going to improve and the demonstrations are basically based on economic cashiers so it's not just for him to say calm down it's helped out when people are hungry and economic situation has not been addressed so that the most asians are likely to continue regardless of their status from agency. al bashir has ruled for nearly three decades he came to power in a bloodless military coup in one thousand nine hundred nine overthrowing a democratically elected government. and since two thousand and twelve anti-government protests grew over rising costs the. security forces responded each time using tear gas and live ammunition hundreds die. the protests that started in december last year have become the long this wave of anti-government demonstrations since the country's independence with a state of emergency declared protests may be harder to sustain. and bashir may
