1:22 pm
talk of common thank you for joining me on up front when you won the nobel peace prize in twenty eleven you were the first arab woman to do so at the age of thirty two you are one of the youngest ever nobel peace laureates what is it like today to be a nobel peace laureate from a country yemen that has been torn apart by war and conflict for so many years. it's really hard it's really hard for me as an open peace laureate and also as a one of the leaders of the peaceful revolution it's very really hard for all the yemeni people who sacrificed peacefully and made that great revolution peacefully and entered to the transitional period peacefully. but we are not the one who caused this war we are not the one who caused this kill us this cause and war is
1:23 pm
waged by the counter revolution led by saudi and immigrants and iran who in your view is at the top of the list in terms of taking responsibility for the catastrophe in yemen we can blame all of them but there were most important party or part of this conflict i believe in the saudi and you because they are behind the militia who you can't imagine that the one who encouraged to think militias before the iranian interfere or announcing that they are supporting houthi this is the saudi and emir that they thought that they can encourage to see to make the coup against the transitional authority so they will be able to destroy yemen and also to stop the on going movement to democracy so they made revenge against the in many people who made their peaceful revolution
1:24 pm
against against that ally against the law the. former president the same thing that they did in egypt in libya so they are the ones who behind the quds day i finally said and also now they are the one who destroying yemen and who doesn't want to yemen to succeed they want yemen to stay as a failure canty so they will be able to continue that it could be a she and he to any man so what i interviewed you last on the show four years ago you were quite reluctant to criticize. saudi arabia back then with regard to yemen at the time you were saying to journalists quote the majority of yemenis you said support the saudi led military intervention since then you seem to have done this kind of u. turn now you're saying saudi arabia is to blame for the humanitarian suffering now you're calling saudi arabia and the u.a.e. occupiers you call them stupid fools recently in an address what made you change your mind and saudi arabia look. it was really the most of the yemeni doesn't want
1:25 pm
to criticize the saudi interfered in the beginning in the beginning of the their interfering because they announced that they came to face the militia and they are pretending to return the digital missile to the country so that was these seen at that time i didn't publicly support saudi intervention in yemen absolutely i don't want and i want because their policy in yemen that one in yemen should be weak that is the only way that saudi with the strong so i didn't you know. i didn't support them but also i was calling the international community to be responsible and to fulfill supporting the man and also implementing the security council resolutions because what happened in yemen also not just the result of
1:26 pm
saudi him or it's and iran it's also because of the complicity from the international community they sponsored the dizzy initiative but they left also hoses to interest in yemen and they didn't make anything and also i till now they support saudi and the minute selling them the will bend and killing a man is while they don't you know do any really great any real force to stop this war your critics or the world to walk a communist criticizing sorry now but they point to leaked cables that show that you said to the saudis you're a natural ally as you were calling for saudi support in private that's what your critics yes and i still call for that they are more our neighbor they should be the allies of yemen is and they should. change their policy and their bed view to yemen is so yemen is the national security of all the region and all the all the world so any collapsing any destroying yemen yemen if it will be real. philcon to that one
1:27 pm
can love the regional security and also the international security so yes i'm calling somebody i'm going to man i'm calling all the religion and calling us and calling so that they should be with the m.n. so we do them as well like you not as and if you could send a message directly to mohamed bin psalm on the saudi crown prince who has been a driving force behind this war from the very beginning as crown prince as defense minister what would you say to him. i will tell him that he is a criminal i want to ask anything from edmonson on because he is destroying my country mohammed bin said men and mohammad and said they should be trialed in the international criminal court because they are committed to the war crimes in my country last year you referred to saudi arabia in the u.a.e. as having a very ugly occupation and ugly influence in yemen shortly afterwards you were suspended from the yemeni political party that you were part of that's been allied with president hadi at one point that is often described in the west as
1:28 pm
a muslim brotherhood party is that the reason you were suspended from the party because you criticized the saudis are you still a member of the pot yes they tried to suspend me and to freeze my membership but i told them who freeze room because they are there this issue is being kidnapped by the saudis i want brigitte it also is kidnapped by the south so all political decision in yemen it even if it's with the police then killing a liberal or with the parties is good now by cell and the most important thing for us as a yemeni if we want to make the peace in yemen we should fill our political decision given western governments like the u.k. and the u.s. are supporting and arming the saudi led coalition in yemen are they also quote stupid fools who are among those responsible for the suffering in your country of course saudi and the u.a.e.
1:29 pm
stupid fools what about their western backers they are so still bitter as well that way either they are stupid photos or they are conspiring with them so they are participating in killing the yemenis the u.s. and the u.k. of course u.s. and u.k. participating in killing him in it or any other countries the third thing. is to saudi and emirates or also any other country that supports iran to. send or expert witness to the host is so and they really are the u.s. and u.k. should stop the selling weapons to saudi and immunity for many many reasons for the fairer sex for fairness is because of the humanitarian issue here many people being killed yemen now under the fair mean because of this and the world and also because of the security of the world in the if they are really concerned about the secure the peace and the security around the world they should stop this war because this
1:30 pm
war will can love sing yemen in this very important geographic. political place and that it will increase rebellions terrorists burger t. refuses it cetera et cetera so here is the unknown i think that they don't think in a good way not just in yemen by the way they are allying with the dictators in arab spring countries and that is the big mistake that the west is committed so aligning with the dictators that means that you are all you are destroying the safety and the security around the world you you say they should stop the war bruce reidel a former cia officer a middle east expert he said if the united states of america and the united kingdom tonight told king solomon of saudi arabia that this war has to end it would end tomorrow do you agree with him of course i agree with this but unfortunately most of the countries special u.s. and u.k. they put the interest above the their values there but also with that they are
1:31 pm
wrong because they had should know that they should make allies the people of the dictators the dictators will go today tomorrow after one month when the year two years but the people who are dreaming for freedom a second fighting for democracy they should they should they are should they should be the one who made the lies with them so donald trump president your state soon. may have a bill a law on his desk but he can either sign or veto which would and u.s. involvement in the yemen war a group of bipartisan senators democrats republicans have helped pass a bill through the house in the senate to stop u.s. involvement some say he might veto that bill because he's so close to saudi arabia what's your message to donald trump my methods do business enter you are looking for accomplishment in new presidency period this company will be really if you stop the war in yemen and that is very important and you are the
1:32 pm
one who can do it so i'm calling him to stop the war in yemen he can do it more than making the nuclear agreement with north korea but the trumpet ministration itself isn't so keen on stopping the war u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o has said that the hoofy group in yemen the militia and iran are to blame for yemen's humanitarian crisis he doesn't blame the saudis are you worried that your country is stuck in the middle of some clash between america saudi on one side iran on the other yemen under the book see what this is exactly and also saudi emir it's iran and the superpowers behind them but also i don't want to exclude who he is because these are really committed to big crimes in yemen they are the same they are committed to the war career crimes in yemen they were used they accepted to be the truth even though they didn't the terms of saudi and in medicine they were getting all then to do
1:33 pm
that iran but if both sides are committing war crimes which is what human rights groups say can there ever be justice for ordinary yemenis because at some stage one of those two sides is going to be in charge of your country so i'm calling them. who is from one side and also islam from one side if we really want as yemeni to make solution by ourselves without interference from outside countries who things and islam should sit together and decide and to. reconciliate and make something another step for peace in yemen and just before we finish you were a close friend of the murdered saudi journalist democracy do you hold the crown prince of saudi arabia mohamed bin salma responsible for his killing of course mohammad minson man is responsible of killing a german hotshot which is the highest power in the saudi and this kind of crimes will not happen without his permission and also i'm not just telling talking
1:34 pm
about general how she has eight. hundred or so and also committed to another crime to our colleagues women activists inside the brazilian of saudi arabia and want to make mohammed missile man continue his ruling on. killing journalists torturing women and other activists and religious people inside while because the i've said all because of the complicity of the world because of the dark oil money he buy very the silence from the so do you think in the international community western governments will ever be able to get justice for jamal given a lot of them are in bed with they should they should if they did they had to make justice for them and that the world send a very bad message to the dictators in our region and all our around the world but
1:35 pm
special in our region to continue their brutality look with all this darkness you should that we are facing a cultural revolution and that is part of the in the path of people for free. and for democracy we are suffering we suffered from dictates of brutality of dictators and we are no paying the price of freedom so. all this counted of nations countries who. stole their conspiracy went away and now what do you see now. is today it's the victory of people the elite of spring and that we will move to give them our dream our second fight and i will do well to achieve our freedom and democracy to a common thanks for joining me on the front thank you. three times british prime minister tourism has asked the u.k. parliament to approve
1:36 pm
a deal to get britain out of the european union three times m.p.'s from all sides rejected up she even promised to resign if they backed up but they still didn't despite an extension britain is still on course to crash out of the european union with no deal then the three years on from a controversial referendum the country is bitterly divided and the economy has already taken a massive hit is it any wonder then that breaks it has been called the u.k.'s biggest political crisis since world war two and is it time to recognize the brics referendum as a catastrophic mistake joining me to debate this of a wall a an anti bracks a campaigner and co-founder of the pro e.u. group our future our choice unclear fox director of the think tank academy of ideas who's called a fantastic mover for popular sovereignty thank you both for joining me in the arena. clearly we start with you here given all the chaos that we're seeing inside of the u.k. parliament given the chaos we're seeing on the streets outside of the u.k. parliament given the way in which britain has become a little bit of
1:37 pm
a loving stock in the eyes of many around the world is it time to say the brics referendum and the whole process that ensued was a mistake. the whole process has proven to be somewhat traumatic but i can't emphasize enough to view is how exciting and brilliant it was that the vote happened in the first place and i think the chaos that ensued is because of a major democratic crisis which is that the elected parliamentarians in the house of commons disagree with the electorate and so consequently you've got this clash of a majority of people who voted to leave the european union were politicised mobilised and took the opportunity to strike a blow for sovereignty and the chaos happened since is because the establishment is don't see lately every think it can a democratic mandate for me it's not spoilt it's not the fault of bricks it it's
1:38 pm
the fault of elected representatives going against the people well the problem we've got is the reason why it's such a masses we took a ticket two percent rejection of our relationship with the e.u. as if that was somehow if the approval for whatever alternate relationship they decided to negotiate after that wild bill in two thousand and sixteen was we've always leave the e.u. but i expect if we find a blank check as to what our picture relationship with the e.u. is going to be i could really thousand different things right now we've negotiated a deal but most direct voters do not like to see how the thirty million people who would progress it but they don't like the break that deal that we've just negotiated that because it was completely undefined who does sixteen and that's why parliament is stuck see the thing is is that the. confusion that families refer to which is to say we didn't know what kind of relationship we'd have with the the idea was that we would sever a formal relationship with the by leaving and subsequent to that there's been
1:39 pm
a huge amount of machinations and all sorts of technocratic ploys to kind of ensure that that relationship would carry on for big business for all the different interested parties in the u.k. he actually didn't approve of the vote so here we are in a situation who voted to several or sever all ties with the european union is simply not true in two thousand and sixteen yes so many of the people on the remain side of the argument are that we believe in the single market because when you basically the trade policy of the e.u. and the regulations of the e.u. but the people on the levy side they're the ones who said we'd keep all the same actors that we currently have to our european market and the right now saying that we'd be losing them if the complete bait and switch it's a mate. no just no phemie you see the thing is that that doesn't appear to be any switch may just switch in terms of how voters voted i mean you're making it sound as though everybody here voted to leave the e.u.
1:40 pm
is having huge regrets but in fact all that's happened is is that the people who want to stay have kept up this relentless absolutely hysterical care plenty not just out of the people have changed their minds are you gov poll done at the beginning of this lead which shows that only forty eight percent of people forty eight percent of people say it was wrong to leave forty one percent say it was right to leave people have changed their minds been three years they've seen them but they want to change their mind you will let them if we counted based on polls at the moment the majority of people in polls are saying that we should leave without a deal i mean you know polling is a mystery are not how it's got a country to run before the referendum it's if you don't trust polls how about another referendum no because understand i think that maybe the viewers will get this you know if your child in. all seriousness that this is a really important once in a lifetime constitutional vote that the outsourcing of that decision has been given by parliament to the public people mobilized in millions the largest turnout ever
1:41 pm
in british history if that happens and then what happens is you're basically disenfranchised by the way and along the line treat it is that and talked about as chief stupid people who were not informed described in demeaned as racists when those things are thrown at you. right does not know who say they've been insults on both sides miscellany right now let me let me also be the question let me let me i'm trying to explain what it feels like to stood let me put that to me then so you've said another referendum is the only way to reverse this without civil unrest clare's making the point that that's pretty insulting to the people who already voted seventeen million people were told it would be a once in a lifetime vote it would be the final say and then you come along and say well let's do it all again where does it end we just be endlessly running referendums for the next few years i do not want under any circumstances to rerun the referendum in two thousand and sixteen that was a terrible referendum and the reason why it was
1:42 pm
a terrible random was precisely because it had not been defined we were not told exactly what relationship were going to have we have a deal now which takes us out of the european union but most people who vote for break that do not like while i was i was saying that if i was a change i'd change my mind what do you do. and i don't think the facts of change i think what has that something is change munchie democracy is now in jeopardy but on this particular deal i mean i will agree on how bad it is and most people who voted leave thought that believed that there would be negotiations in good faith now people don't think that's what of what would you want to see happen just for the sake of our viewers around the world who are struggling to follow no deal deal indicative vote customs union. backstops two point zero what do you want to see happen at this stage although i wouldn't have said this before but at this stage because as we've been told by the m.p.'s totally all the way through that it's you
1:43 pm
know no deal is better than a bad deal this is a bad deal i would like no deal one of the things we've learned from this whole process is that many leave voters did not do this for economic gain they actually did it on a point of principle about self-determination freedom you know there are more important and they have agreed that until the anime i mean however. there was a sort of gracious and lots of people was she was a major factor in their voting decision that is a fact claviger not and she immigration all concerned about immigration is not anti immigrant and confusing those two things would be misleading ok well i don't grudge the lawyers are the main politician it's a labor of the there is a not an outbreak of racism in this i didn't say that you said that so there is not what is your solution right now if you could wave a magic wand what is your solution to this undeniable crisis in the u.k. right now classes walk away i'll be mine i'd say that right now the breakfast fundamentally changed the to the two things people wanted more control over their
1:44 pm
country and to be better off we had no deal which would turn us into the only major economy in the world that doesn't have a trade deal with those closest neighbors or we have this deal which would mean we'd have a substantially and objective the less control over a country that has given that record does not match up at all with the promises that were made in two thousand and sixteen and has fundamentally changed lives only the most democratic and logical thing i mean is that people get to judge which one they prefer or whether or not they want to scrap the whole thing and remain in the european union that is the most democratic way forward because that negative i mean to say that people do not get to judge the outcome of that class response. ok it's a thing that is extraordinary and maybe people outside the don't realize this is that the campaign is for a second referendum the people's vote to take it back to the people and all people who have come pain to remain within the u.k. within the e.u. so you know it is interesting that the only can paint her around uttering the people's vote of the people in return. are you seriously family please do so one of
1:45 pm
the co-founders of my organization our preacher our choice voted to leave it is because bret has been such a disaster but he has realized that we need to change to change direction drastically so one of the counters at the top of our party for the random or new or pointedly clear let me ask you this question you said a while ago but you are adamant that another referendum would be anti democratic how does it work how does how is only the twenty sixteen referendum the only example of democracy and not general elections not another referendum why is that one referendum the only democratic truth yet no it's a very important question because of the way the referendum was posed and remember the electorate did not call the referendum the politicians did they made it very clear that this was a definitive decision and that they were actually asking voters to make that decision they told us that this would have to happen but what you can't say which you can't overturn a referendum result before it's actually been enacted because if eating that you
1:46 pm
destroy trust in politicians the other thing is by the way both mainstream political parties are practically civil war over this that splits in the minds and this is as you well know an international phenomena which is that there is a growing gap and kind of running out of steam at the technocratic elites all over the place many instances this is one of the many rebellions against the establishment well firstly yes i'd agree that the politicians are in absolute disarray it's been chaos for the past two years but the idea that this is the people versus the. which meant just put yourself in that in the mind of somebody who isn't in that problem right now they know that fifty percent of the population but it's leave the e.u. largely on the basis of having more control over their country and being better off they just negotiated a deal that means we give up our say in brussels we no longer have representation in the e.u. it would still bomb by those rules anyway meaning we end up with less control and then even numbers within the alternative being no deal which as i said as i want to throw out all that we have the right amount of government resources that has gone
1:47 pm
this breaks a thing and it will have to spend the next five years ago she had me at all trade deal ok that would mean all those issues those things that people were really really upset about in two thousand sixteen they will simply not be addressed and that is the tragedy of brags that the only come together is that we focus on the things that we all care about so i mean they claire fox will have to leave it there but we can agree on that thank you both for joining me in the arena that's our show up front will be back next week. for the no magic jack tries to survival is about reaching their destination because if we don't encourage people never be able to get to tell us the story we follow the mongolian herdsmen on a treacherous migration. is dangerous to the ice of this as they strive to preserve their traditional way of life for the victims of sometimes luser cattle that was called for because of the storm risk in utah mongolia on al-jazeera.
1:48 pm
well there on my. be able to. express exactly what is happening in the moment and what it needs. of the people this is a dialogue everyone has a voice and we want to hear from. the head of libya's. capital.
1:49 pm
headquarters. also ahead three people killed in. the protests. demonstrations. and. terrorists. the head. of the trail of his military offensive on the capital prime minister. determination well the two sides have been locked in fierce battles about. from the center of tripoli from where without the report. on the.
1:50 pm
to world to have to trying to push their way to disease city. they say they have seized some areas south of tripoli these claims have been denied by the tripoli based and the recognized government on saturday the u. and bag prime minister. vowed to remain firm against have to discourses. we reiterate our code to libyans throughout the country east to west north to south to the necessity of giving priority to the interests of the country unifying the ranks and working together to lift libya out of this crisis i say to the international community that it should not equate between the aggressor and those who defend themselves or between those who seek the militarization of the state and those committed to a democratic civilian country or. the u n recognized government troops are said to
1:51 pm
have been deployed from the city of misrata to the west and south to fight have to his forces. therefore asked like but we suffered no loss at all it's the border that one family of the area was hit believed that we held back on the use of force in order to protect civilians and public and private property any dead fighter flying or to police will not be allowed and will be targeted the air base it came from in order to be targeted. you and secretary general and to new good turkish has been in tripoli area of talks on rebuilding libya's fractured political system has been forced to leave the un says the talks will still go ahead. we will not give up this work quickly i know very well that holding the national conference in the conditions of escalation of fighting is difficult but we will insist on holding it on time unless other circumstances interfere. libya has been divided between two competing governments since twenty fourteen the talks are seen as one of
1:52 pm
a few options for peace in libya the only explanation available to us that he. probably when they wanted to shift the power balance or you know to his favor just days before the reconsideration conference so he saw he got advances demands during this conference because negotiations are then that they are reflections of. on the ground in france foreign ministers of the g seven group of countries have been voicing their concerns several foreign governments have been wanting to leave the have those forces not to attack tripoli they say that have to support the talks which are still expected to start on the fourteenth of april with the hope of using elections as a way out of libya's a two year conflict g. seven foreign ministers attending a meeting in france also issued a statement saying that libya's oil facilities must not be used by any faction for
1:53 pm
political gain if libya's opposing forces continue this latest battle for control the route to a political solution will become more difficult with. tripoli not a maintenance research fellow where the chatham house and he says it is difficult for half that to back down from the offensive. i think we're entering a more and more dangerous phase in the last twenty four hours i think what we're seeing is an escalation. after us forces seeking to support the offensive and in response further forces being sent from misrata to the capital to oppose that offensive so unfortunately it looks like the momentum is gathering and that major clashes could be could be witnessed i think it's interesting to understand the motivations for this offensive because in some ways it seems quite a surprising move in fact a lot of the discussion was how a political settlement might be coming in the near term and that it might heavily favor half there and actually what we've heard in recent weeks is
1:54 pm
a lot of criticism from have to opponents saying that after was effectively being given too much so in that context and only ten days out from the national conference that have to launch an offensive was the u.n. secretary general is in tripoli certainly has caught people by surprise i think at the same time it seems likely that if that was the play and controlling that tripoli was the goal then the hope would have been that it would have happened quicker now that this is set in and forces are being mobilized it looks set to be a much more sustained campaign certainly following the speech that have to made on thursday announcing the advance on tripoli it's very hard for him to back down and see how he gets out of this position i think it's difficult to make too many predictions on the ground at the moment because we see that in libya often alliances can be quite fleeting and shifting but you would certainly say that at this present time it's unlikely that have to forces are going to prevail in tripoli
1:55 pm
and that raises a whole host of questions. well on to other news now and six people have been killed in saddam's protests against the president turned violent one died on the man while the other deaths occurred in the capital khartoum while their demonstrations marched on president almost all the shares residence and the day of army headquarters draw under quite as more. the they are calling for revolution and these protesters headed for the army headquarters in khartoum the latest in a wave of protests that began in december over the price of bread and escalated into calls for an end to president omar bashir is three decades. the longer it takes for a bishop to step down because the protests will get if you walk down the street it was just five years old up to fifty or sixty years old or coming out of the same thing in one step down security forces have responded to the protest movement with

1:57 pm
protests for and against the president the rallies followed days of power failures which nicolas maduro is blaming on his political rivals or shortly we will hear from joe biden childhoods whether well those are supporters but first a last merica editor lucy newman reports from a rally led by opposition leader juan why though. this is what opponents of nicolas maduro call the first stage of what they've labeled operation liberty in actual fact it's an attempt to gauge just how successful they can continue to bring supporters out onto the streets not just here but throughout than israela. they want to show that they have not grown tired or afraid despite increased threats from armed paramilitary groups loyal to the government to fire tear gas and he didn't bullets at protesters but but this if it is says she's not afraid. but you know is incompetent he talks about socialism but he lives like a millionaire like an imperialist but we haven't had any water in my neighborhood

1:59 pm
president nicolas maduro is going anywhere anytime soon and so the real task of the opposition leaders now is to try to keep these people out on the streets for the long haul. the large demonstration in caracas was peaceful but in the northern city of daraa riot police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters why the admitted that more sacrifices are needed. but his most sobering message was directed at those who are calling for u.s. military intervention. why though says it's up to the news wayland's to lead the charge for regime change a clear reference to the trumpet ministrations recent admission that military action is not in the cards are now. seeing human just see them as. president nicolas maduro put out the call to supporters and they heeded that will thousands of them taking to the streets of central correctness to show that them
