some question the government's motivation behind subsidies rather than investing in the future of the industry they don't have enough dissent and they don't have. to do it at. they detest do something that's an easy way and then get properly because you do sing public money so and then you call. but the government defends the subsidy program as the only way they can work with the farmers how many hogan yet if we don't have this program the farmers don't come to talk with us with it they cooperate with the government it probably is traditionally a stronghold for the democrat party members campaigning out in the plantations they say the current program is bad for the farmers and will bring it to an end if elected although they'll guarantee a minimum price for rubber. but offer little detail of how they'll keep the

obvious to the world he's not a president not anything he's. delinquent citizen. meanwhile the opposition protesters of clashed with police and security forces tried to stop supporters from setting up a stage says the power outage is another example of government corruption. and for more protests to pressure the president to step down. before. to wear us out brothers and sisters and yes the road has been very long the road is out but we will never tire in the search for freedom and we will stay in the streets stories about as more from the opposition rally in caracas. initially the demonstration that was expected to take place today they have asked people to gather in three different points all had ak up but because very very early in the
8:51 am
morning people tried to set up a page here and they were detained and that's why people thought it turning and coming here massively in order to protest against the government of new fallout motherhood of this demonstration is happening in the middle of what many say is a bigger power outage in the country what we have seen in the past two days here is a country that has been completely in the dark suspects in most of the oxytocin that they've been in a way that according to our sense that in many cases have not been working we have told them to what to do you know that are trying to some firm how many people died because of this power cuts and they're saying that until now at least sixteen people have lost their lives many of them were on life support in hospitals around the country and that's why people are coming here massively they're saying that the current theory is that prices there is more to do the food and medicine hyperinflation that is affecting this country's most vulnerable and that's why they're saying that there needs to be change and that change is represented

a maybe a vision leader up in. the government now jarrett has ordered universities to close early for the spring break as students made the biggest anti-government protests in any thirty years those shots on sunday two weeks ahead of schedule no social reasons been given young people have played a big part in demonstrations against president bush i think it's two year old is seeking a fifth term in office along the whole bara has covered north africa extensively he says the role of algiers military is the key. as the protest movement gains momentum in algeria the big question is what will be the army's next move the army being the most powerful establishment in algeria that will depend on many factors we have to wait and see what happens on the thirtieth of march when the constitutional court will. approve those illegitimate to run for the presidential elections and i think that could ignite more anger in algeria the
8:53 am
general sentiment now among many people the protesters the opposition is that the elections should be postponed and vase say that they don't think that the environment could be conducive to and instability in algeria i think of the men term continuous over the coming weeks the army will definitely have to step in now they're cautiously monitoring the situation on the ground and they're looking for that balancing act they don't want to be seen as siding with. and of the same time sounding again as the algerian people that are statements made over the past few days by the. army chief guy backfired here asked people who warned people against in the acts of instability but for many people this was an act of intimidation trying to tell the people if you decide to continue to protest the
8:54 am
army might interfere so i think they are trying to gauge wish way the wind is going to blow in the coming days in algeria but this is quite a remarkable moment in the modern history of algeria the country has gone through a series of political crises nine hundred sixty five the those who fought for the independence of algeria disagreed about how to move forward and the pave the way for the first military coup in our series in one thousand nine hundred one the army had to step in and block the political process in a syria to prevent the. islam is from abroad in the country an act which still continues to divide the years you have those who say it was a wise decision by the army and those who say that was the moment that has prevented algeria from building a strong vibrant democracy and this explains why now the army is very cautious about how to move forward but i think if the momentum continues to build against president abdelaziz bouteflika and his bid to run for
8:55 am
a fifth it could be the moment for the army to step in and look for another turnout of us backed kurdish fighters are preparing for a final push against isis lost on klav in syria fighting bad news was poor to allow more civilians to leave on saturday and i still feel i could still be seen in the town groups say tens of thousands of fled the area since the start of the offensive by kurdish fighters last month at the un's refugee agency has been experiencing firsthand what life is like for syrians who fled the fighting for the program visited refugees in lebanon and says the u.n. won't pressure them into returning home. they're worried they're they're fearful of security they are thinking about their destroyed houses of the lack of jobs in all these are very important human factors that need to be addressed but i think that if we continue to work on the syrian side maybe more people will make this decision in more confidence it is very important you know very well our position that any
8:56 am
return be not only safe and dignified but also voluntary that people have to make that decision by themselves and should not be pressured or pushed and i think the continues to be our position but of course for those who return they will be they will be supported by us and we're certainly not as has been said in the past but he's not being said any more we're not blocking any return we would be it would not be our job to do that lawyers and saddam hussein nine women protest as a been sentenced to twenty lashes and a month in jail for rioting comes a day after president omar al bashir ordered the release of all women detained of anti-government demonstrations students of continued to protest in the capital khartoum despite a state of emergency they're angry with the government for detaining protests during the last three months of demonstrations with morgan has more than a call to. follow the directives of president obama this year thirty eight women
8:57 am
have been released from prison according to the da for lawyers association now let's remember we don't know how many women have been arrested in the first place the government has not given a clear figure to how many women were detained since the protests started more than eleven weeks ago in fact the government hasn't given a clear figure to how many people both male and female were arrested but what we do know is that thirty eight women so far have been released that number does not include the women who have been sentenced to jail for their participation in trials and that number does not also include the women who are pending charges because of their participation in protest over the past few weeks now again we don't know how many women were arrested in the first place but that's of the say that the number could. go as high as one hundred fifty women who have been arrested we've spoken to family members over the past few weeks and they have expressed concerns about the well being of their female relatives who have been detained some of them tweeted out on social media and on facebook that they are very relieved to have their family members back and that they are very happy to know that they are doing well and that they will be taking them for basically medical check up to make sure that
8:58 am
everything is ok with them but again this is not mean the end of the process the president has repeatedly said that he wants dialogue and this could be part of his initiative to try to show the protesters and the demonstrators that he's trying to pave way for a dialogue but people are saying that they don't want any talks with them we have spoken to many demonstrators over the past few weeks and they say that is not going to be the solution their calls for more protests tomorrow and in the coming weeks and they say they will not stop until the government steps down something the president said he's not going to do and he's already announced a state of emergency that is set to last for a year and most of the people who've been arrested over the past couple of weeks have been charged have been charged and tried in the courts in something called emergency courts which were set up to make sure that the people who've been protesting have basically are being charged and due process takes its course so it's not clear how long this will go and where it will end but at the moment we have protesters and demonstrators will very determined to continue until the president steps down and we have a president and
8:59 am
a government that seems to be very defiant and not willing to step down until elections come next year. protesters have been out on the streets of paris for the seventeenth successive weekend and this time it was women leading the march they've been calling for equal treatment just a day the international women's day the protests were mostly peaceful but the number of those taking part fell to the lowest level since demonstrations first began in late november as i got a president micron's economic policies which protests to say favor the rich. women are in the front line of the demonstration because there is no democracy without women's rights there are no women's rights without democracy we are essential to the proper functioning of society. people do not want more of this financial globalisation french people will not go back they do not want to go back between ten to fifteen million french are in misery even in a survival state so we don't know where we're heading to but we won't go backwards that's for sure satellite images released in the us by the news outlet n.p.r. suggest that north korea could be preparing for
9:00 am
a new missile launch increased activity at the site near pyongyang comes two weeks talks between leader kim jong un and president trump ended without an agreement kim let's stop missile launches of relations between the two countries and prove these latest reports come just days after the different satellite images allegedly showed pyongyang had started rebuilding a rocket. well time will tell but i have a feeling that our relationship with good career came to myself chairman i think it's a very good one i think it remains good i would be. surprised in a negative way if we did anything that was. not per our understanding but we'll see what happens look when i came in. under the obama administration north korea was a disaster i inherited a mess with north korea right now you have no testing you know nothing let's see what happens but i.
