the state of emergency because there are no soldiers on the streets. the protests which started in mid december in the northeastern city of algebra were sparked by a rise in the costs of basic goods some opposition groups say protesters have legitimate reason to take to the streets demonstrators say they want to voice their demands peacefully but have been met with tear gas and bullets fired rights groups say security forces have killed at least fifty people since demonstrations began the government puts the figure at thirty two the un human rights council has criticised the government response and its use of force president bashir met the committee formed to resolve the crisis and repeated his call for dialogue as well as announcing the state of emergency bashir has stepped down as head of the ruling national congress party with talked about preparing the environment for. political prisoners to this. so we can create an environment for a national dialogue because every side sticking to their positions will not help the country but it's unclear who to talk to most of the protests have been called
9:09 am
for by opposition groups and an unofficial body known as the sudanese professional association but something to say while they participate in the protests neither the opposition nor the association represent them so nearly four months on anti-government protest remain largely leaderless making it difficult to start talks to settle the crisis. ahmed bashir has presided over sudan for three decades coming to power in a bloodless military coup in one nine hundred eighty nine to overthrow the democratically elected government of the current wave of anti-government protest is in the first day of the most serious and persistent his remaining defiant and so are the protesters leaving no solution in sight to end the deadlock. durian state media have released a letter said to be from the president. warning of chaos as mass protests continue against its leadership and warns of foreign groups infiltrating demonstrations protests have been saying place for the past two weeks against his

a resolution condemning bigotry and discrimination the vote comes after a controversy over a comment made by a democratic congresswoman. and questions over whether it's us and sematic omar came under fire for criticizing israel and pro israel lobbyists in washington our comments have become a talking point for republicans and is dividing the democratic party patika hain has more. omar is one of the two first muslim women elected to congress and she has become a lightning rod on the issue of israel and u.s. support after she said this about an israeli lobbying group. for allegiance to the country. i want. why is it ok. for me to. be karma and
9:15 am
not the. rule that is he losing. her critics say that is anti-semitic and accuse her of implying jews can't be loyal americans representative omar embodies a vile i hate filled anti-semitic anti israel bigotry this is not a time for politics this is a time for the democratic leaders in this institution to do the right thing they should remove her from the house foreign affairs committee they should stand up to her they should stop empowering her disgusting hatred before it turns in to horror republicans are demanding action even though they were mostly silent when it was discovered that one of their congressional leaders attended a white supremacist convention another congressman defended white nationalism and the us president said this about neo nazis. very fine people on both sides but it's not just republicans this is shown there is a big divide in the democratic party why are we on able to singularly condemn
9:16 am
anti-semitism why can't we call it a semitism and show that we've learned the lessons of history but younger and more progressive politicians came to her defense leaving the democratic leader nancy pelosi to try and find some way to unite the party i feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic and a tude but that she didn't have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people with that the house voted on a resolution condemning anti-semitism islamophobia and white supremacy and now they hope to move on but being one of the first muslims in congress it is likely omar will continue to be focused on by the right recently republicans in west virginia briefly put this poster in their state house there wasn't a resolution later condemning it petticoating al-jazeera washington russian politicians have approved a bill that could put anyone in jail for posting online criticism of the country

well those are the headlines the news will continue here in our desire ofter inside story that's up next. hallway hits back the chinese tech giant sues the u.s. government whilst it fights a legal battle in canada why is the company so controversial and is it a threat to global security this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello there and welcome to the program i'm laura kyle for china huawei is a source of national pride is written into the company's name but for the u.s. and many western nations the tech giant is a spying tool for the chinese government the u.s. says huawei poses a security threat and is pressuring allies in europe and asia to ban its products but its hallway is fighting back it's suing the u.s. government for not allowing its workers to use qual way equipment and in canada the company is fighting the extradition of one of its top executives to the u.s. she's accused of flouting u.s. sanctions on iran are trying to correspond to a jim brown reports from hallways headquarters in. from the wall way success is clear just part of it sprawling complex in the special economic zone of . while weighs name literally means the achievements of china but the trumpet
9:23 am
ministration says those achievements more to cheating and stealing than the sort of innovation on display here allegations its top executives deny on thursday they held a news conference inviting selected media organizations including al-jazeera to confirm that while way has filed a lawsuit against the u.s. government over a ban which restricts federal government employees from using its equipment we are there is no us. challenge to. these only. but also owes are we and us and shoot us once more they insisted while ways not in the pocket of china's government and accuse the us of hacking its servers. and ran here our way. it has carried our service and this story and given us
9:24 am
this while ways top officials were once like china's leaders they rarely spoke to the foreign media but the arrest of the firm's chief financial officer in canada where she's now fighting extradition to the united states has changed all of that and the firm has now begun an extraordinary legal and media offensive. huawei is a success story the chimes with many chinese people's sense of patriotism and pride it's not clear who's behind this music video now circulating on social media praising it smartphones the firm insists it had nothing to do with it. well way is fighting another legal battle in canada where its chief financial officer mongering joe appeared before an extradition court on wednesday she's accused of breaking u.s. sanctions and money laundering monks lawyers argue her arrest was politically motivated
9:25 am
weiwei is trying to weather storms on many fronts the copycat european architecture is not a theme park but the firm's new research and development campus the company's critics continue to argue that it's not just the buildings here that have been closed adrian brown al-jazeera. let's take a close look at hallways history based company was founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven by former officer of the chinese people's liberation army he won a government contract to provide equipment to the communist party in the early one nine hundred ninety s. his company was later granted status of a national champion this effectively closed the market to foreign competition hallway expanded internationally in the year two thousand and five years later the value of its overseas sales the past local business and today as the world's biggest supplier of network telecommunications equipment and the second largest
9:26 am
seller of mobile phones. let's bring in our guest now and andrew long is an independent china analyst and a research fellow at beijing normal university he joins us via skype from hong kong and washington d.c. we have richard goodstein a lawyer and democratic political consultant and via skype from tokyo mark einstein chief analyst for digital services at japan a technology research firm a very warm welcome to all of you andrew does hallway have good grounds to sue the u.s. government. yes because. it's not the us it is subject to three hundred sixty degrees of blowback from the united states against revocation as the world's leading supplier of five g. infrastructure and governance now has achieved this position by working very
9:27 am
diligently behind the scenes over the past two decades winning the trust of customers in one hundred sixty countries worldwide in fact it is a very very special company in a sense a cost not only because it has the background of the founder was a member of the peer but because it is now. separate company the company in fact ninety eight percent of the shares are own by employees and there are one hundred seventy thousand employees and forty five percent of these employees work on r. and d. so it is a company focusing on technology focusing on you know ration and it has managed to become the world's lot there's a lot of supply of five g. infrastructure thoughts i think this decision isn't cheve true maybe the past two decades is unlikely to be achieved just by copying or stealing other people's
9:28 am
technology. and how much and how much does it actually means the u.s. market. well the us market actually accounts for a relatively small proportion of china's worldwide market penetration while weight is highly widely used. even in europe embarrassed european countries in asia. and you know other countries on a world and when it's seven hundred sixty countries worldwide. it is the world's largest supplier of five g. the cutting edge fine she infrastructure imports the other western competitors erik's on and not care even so certain are miles. but of course up to love with the worries about always background and the fear that
9:29 am
is florence may have backed the walls all these worries sister for a long time in the polls but i do know there is no hard evidence ok that there was a black or let them bring in richard at this point and it does make a good point doesn't he how white is the us to be first of all suspicious of hallway secondly where is the evidence. well that's a start laura your opening package said that by law in china competition against weiwei is not even permitted so why waste trying to get access to the u.s. market when its u.s. counterparts are not able as of now to get access to the chinese market so right there there's kind of an imbalance and i think what you would hear from officials have started in the pentagon in the defense department in the united states years ago this was not just a donald trump. fiction that there were grave concerns that was
9:30 am
because it was always penetration that for example it might have the ability to disable u.s. military if there was ever a shooting war involving china that it would have the ability to disable kind of main kind of mainstream communications in the united states whether involving the government or not this was a pretty great concern i can't tell you nor can any of your guests tell you whether there's a basis for that maybe if this lawsuit proceeds the pentagon will have to establish you could understand why they would be reluctant to kind of put on public display what they do and don't know about what ways penetration its back doors it's you know it's capacity because there's real competitive issues there but. i'm satisfied that they're not using this as a fiction to advance the trump trade agenda this preceded donald trump ok marc is that not a similar threats the complete will not use the similar argument against other
9:31 am
companies and if we look at some sign with apple for example that where indeed suspicions that the united states' national security agency had installed some spy west so if if if walk away then why not every every technology company well i think what's really underpinning this entire discussion is how critical five g.'s going to be five g. is not really going to be about. smart phones in the grand scheme of things it's going to be connecting and controlling all of our autonomous cars drones connected factories smart cities all of these things are going to go through this five g. network which is a really big difference from what we saw with the four g. networks and i think that is really what is underpinning all of these security fears that are out there whether or not they're actually warranted well that's another interesting point is that was this the this this five g. network is the u.s. not concerns that without using huawei as products is a leading developer and five that it's going to fall behind the rest of the world
9:32 am
when it comes to developing this super fast in that way i think by all accounts that very much a concern in the trump white house that the u.s. is losing the five g. race but i think again the concern about why are way way predated all the talk in development of five g. this this went back many years again in the pentagon before five g. was kind of. a dream that people had of being ubiquitous and it looks like it will be but i think that the the officials in the u.s. government who are a political have a concern and again maybe it will have to put their basis for their concerns on the record in the course of this law soon that this says yes five g. is part of it but it's not it's more than five g. as regards weiwei. and you can perhaps you can help explain to us what role the communist party plays in a company like chua way because all companies must have
9:33 am
a communist party committee what do they actually do. i think this out although the founder was on the other p.-l. a but the but then the company has been established as an independent company i mean the background of a lot of the companies around the world of different backgrounds. but one way has make it absolutely clear that of course the hose the customers interests at high regard otherwise it wouldn't have been able to achieve such a high level of market penetration hundred sixty seventy and resisting countries worldwide and and not just because of his products but because of the liability of his services now the concern about. digital security does not apply to wall way itself only are there are companies even as asaram in all the world and also other high tech companies they they're all have. this
9:34 am
kind of consensus in the international phenomenon so one way has said during this. press conference there is a willing to work with continue to work with the international community and in the governments to improve the kind of security issues associated with other digital products as well as infrastructure and indeed even amongst the so-called. association of united states and canada australia new zealand and the united kingdom focusing on those security the united kingdom has already said that yes. it shares some of the concert. but is not believe that banding of way out runt is the answer. was the kind of concerns could
9:35 am
be managed by different lives of security. kind of infrastructure built into the system so i think that this is the whole argument used by or part way in taking the u.s. government court kind of you'll be lateral barreling way not only in the united states but worldwide and you've been in countries which have got very little to do with national security and that ban is under the some call national security authorization law for the united states the united states acting as both judge jury and executioner without giving while the chance to present his case to the courts is a violation of the separation of powers in the united states and that's the just our always lawsuit. and also in what way is also in the best conference
9:36 am
highlight the fact that while weight balance contains only about thirty percent of the components. and like many other products out there there are components from from all over the world right. and he's on a competence likewise for their security mastercard you have to have a gun then they're anti because they're the point about bringing other western countries like germany and the u.k. into the class is going to pass and wanton if not because they are still deciding on what five thousand restrictions to impose on huawei if indeed there is any why are they hesitating where the u.s. has not so i think there's a very clear reason why these companies are hesitating and why the they have to hesitate and that's because while ways our infrastructure costs are typically thirty percent less than those of their competitors and so you know. five g. does not necessarily even have a clear business case right now you know while away and it's other you know sister
9:37 am
company in china isn't have always been you know much more lower cost providers of mobile network infrastructure and i think especially in emerging markets and even in europe where there's a lot of competition more competition than the u.s. you know these are very very critical business concerns and so i think that's why you've seen a lot of back and forth which of the the u.k. does have the cyber security evaluation center where it says it's quite happy being able to manage the security risk of qual way products through through this mechanism cannot be replicated in the u.s. well you know again what none of us know is what the fish rules of the united states government have seen that have given rise to their concern might it be something that is totally fictitious might it be as grave as they are insisting we just don't know and is it possible that what the u.k. says is manageable in the opinion of united states officials is not i mean the fact
9:38 am
is with all due respect to the u.k. the u.s. has kind of a global reach and i think their judgment in the united states government is. its security apparatus is second to none. you know might it reach the point where the united states can like the u.k. decide all right we can live with weiwei perhaps. but it but it's a concern to the united states because it's got say troops in the u.k. troops in germany where there need to be communication lines and frankly they can't bypass while away as things stand now so that's the concern and again we may not know until this litigation proceeds and there's discovery that both sides have to put their cards on the table presumably in some nonpublic setting so the u.s. government can satisfy a judge look judge we're not making this up here's our basis for telling you why we
9:39 am
have this concern and so far where there has been litigation that while way have kind of pursued the courts have generally been pretty receptive to the united states government position but to say that that might not be in a public setting so we might as consumers never know what the threat to the u.s. is. what i'm saying is when i was a law clerk the top advisor to a the top federal judge in the district of columbia in a case involving state secrets where there had to be nonpublic hearings because. the that was something that the united states government needed to disclose to the judge to persuade him of why their their position in their view. you know took precedence over the opposing party but it's not the kind of thing that you would want to share publicly and so yes at the end of the day like a lot of things having to do with high technology it may well be that the public
9:40 am
doesn't know every single detail alternately will they probably button for purposes of kind of pursuing this litigation maybe not ok and you i mean look at the case of the c.f.o. of one hallway mung one joe and rest in canada and we look at the chinese government's reaction to that that there were counter arrests of canadians in canada i mean that was quite an extreme reaction to monk's arrest and it does only serve doesn't it pays into this narrative that the communist party has high involvement with huawei well i think both china and the united states and make it clear that the. that the rest. of the fungal part way it's got no do. what us is. doing banning walk away. from various. solutions
9:41 am
even the lawsuit according to the press conference. the top leader or well making. the laws so there's nothing that you. or. upon the slaughter but coming back to the can they here is the question before the canadian courts is whether or not there are similar crimes which under the canadian law exists and that also exists in the united states in other words even it was a crime in the notice that there must be a law in canada. warning the same crime if for that extradition can be a serious cause the ultimate really because we have to decide according to canadian law and even if the course the exhibition's who are here the attorney general has
9:42 am
got to make a part of the session costs while the process there are many many of uncertainties for the appeal so i think the case in canada is likely drag on for years. and some people say that this is the kind of the illing it's a well wait with this we will be but i think that behind it all is a perception at least in beijing. it is not just a trade war it's not just a cat knowledge of war it's a cirrus sr degree pushback against the wiser charter which is seen to be threatening the u.s. prominence in different fields now don't forget china was to help them get in the new deal. is so. years ago with the hope that china will become more like the west where are all of these this hope has been dashed not only was i going to jump in there andrew mo would you agree with that would they and many people do say that this us ban is just an attempt to keep
9:43 am
a competitive edge of american companies are you know i i'm not quite sure i can i can say that because you know i think one of the things we need to remember here is that a lot of the way and city equipment that is being shipped potentially to places like iran or north korea has a lot of. american components in it intel chips qualcomm chips all sorts of things america does not have a wireless radio infrastructure player and so you know bringing down wall is not necessarily propping up any u.s. company and in fact a lot of us. chip makers are very important suppliers to wall ways. so i think of course there are very large geopolitical issues here that are probably underpinning all of this but there isn't you know i mean the companies like motorola and and bell labs and lucent and munich they're all long gone. so yeah that is
9:44 am
a concern but i'm not necessarily sure that it's driving an agenda ok but how should a huawei reassure governments like the u.s. over the concerns that they have well let me just mention one thing just for purpose of your viewers here we're talking about the transparency of the canadian court system and the u.s. court system we there's some hope that this litigation proceeds if wall way is satisfied that it poses no threat it will have to basically prove that the united states government have to prove something quite differently think about what the likelihood is if this was a court case in china. think about that for a second who would have confidence that this would be handled on the up and up that the same level of transparency would obtain in a trying to use court if walk away with a litigant as opposed to the united states that's one of the fundamental problems we're kind of talking about systems that are radically different so again to answer
9:45 am
your question i think wall way will have to disclose you know will have to produce documents and have witnesses and subject them to cross-examination in the united states court to basically satisfy a court here that. you know it poses no threat united's government will have to put on the table its evidence to the contrary and then a judge will have to make a determination and ultimately that will be reviewed by a court of appeals and maybe ultimately the supreme court but again that's the value you know that's what the united states why that's why united states has to be preeminent not just on this case but in the world because it's got certain levels of transparency and. you know it's court system is something that is open to everybody i don't think anybody would say that's as of now the case in the chinese courts ok well it's certainly going to be a fascinating legal battle hopefully we will as the public be privy to some of it
