7:51 pm
algeria the said is really concerned about the situation in algeria and has called for genuine political reforms an inclusive political process that would be take into account the need to. develop the livelihood of the algerian so this is a situation which is not monitored by practically everyone all over the world and if we've got hundreds of thousands of people taking part or so expected to take part in the six week of protests there is clearly plenty of momentum with the protesters where ultimately do you think this could be heading. well the amount of seems to be really building up now as you can see the those live images now from the central zia's the headquarters of the post office which has become the focal point of the project ocracy movement if you get a crowd which is swelling now of that of course for mass protests across the country we've seen many human rights activists political parties opposition figures
7:52 pm
and also trade unions saying that they side with the protesters an indication that we might see. today compared to the last few fridays and people say that they are determined to continue the fight what is quite interesting about the slogans that we've heard so far particularly in the capital algiers you say you see people saying that. president has to go but they don't seem to be really impressed with the move by the army about article one or two they say this is just could be a letter by the army to decoy the pro-democracy sentiment from from from the perspective of the protesters in a jury or nick they say all the establishment has to go president government and the parliament and they are now floating the idea over the somberly that would take over for an interim period something similar to what happened. in two thousand and
7:53 pm
eleven when the established a constituent assembly and took over after presidency dr dean well it was evicted of. all i know you keep in close on events that will use things develop in tunis thanks very much indeed. and just like to say that if you are in algeria we'd like you to help us tell this story to get in touch with us on what's up or telegram especially if your attorney are planning to attend a protest or if you want to share a video conference the number is plus one seven four five zero one zero one four nine. ok british politicians jus to vote for a third time on the prime minister's deal paul newman's must approve to reason made agreements in order to ensure the departure is delayed until may the twenty second if no the u.k. will crash out of the e.u. . without a deal the only covers remain truly agreement. about future relations
7:54 pm
between the two as you can see there already to. this issue. let's go outside parliament where we can join. join us live from westminster. what's your sense of what's going on here is it treason mase proposal finally going to get the numbers. i think it's very difficult for her i mean everything is that maybe at this stage. the numbers are really the focus of everyone at this moment you have to bear in mind that the unionist parties of northern ireland said that they would not back this deal because it goes against the interests. opposition saying that they wouldn't. vote for this withdrawal agreement because it doesn't have the political declaration and that for them it feels that they get their blindfolded briggs's so you do have a lot still a lot of opposition to this withdrawal agreement the attorney general when he
7:55 pm
opened this session today has reminded everyone in the room that basically this was their last chance. to decide. otherwise it will have to be. otherwise it will have to be out. trying to find a new way by april eleventh but any other extension after that will be this question at. these the debate is going to go on for another. two and a half hours more or less and then we should hear from both terrorism a and. labor leader and after that they will be vote you know anyone you os will tell you they don't know it looks very tight the reason may and then of course you know today was supposed to be the day the u.k. was out of the e.u. that's not going to happen at this stage and nobody knows when or how or when it

7:57 pm
