sudan during this transition period. but always good to talk to you many thanks indeed for being with us again solomon that. protesters are back on the streets in algeria it is the eighth consecutive friday of demonstrations they say they're not satisfied with the departure of president abilities beautifully of this month and want an overhaul of the political establishment the interim president has announced new elections for july fourth. is a research fellow at the school for advanced studies in the social science is based in france he joins us now live via skype from algiers before we get into the nitty gritty of this i know you're not there you go home at the moment but you're looking at pictures of the protests on local media. in terms of the size of the crowd is it bigger than that it has been in previous weeks the same of that fewer people there this week. no i think there is no sign of terri no sound the sound of the
10:01 pm
protestors but even more i believe we are reaching some kind of group becoming not sure yeah actually to date you know that it has been two months of the most and then decide of the regime there has been no satisfying at non-students actual no sign that delusion human needs ridiculous incident in most respects so i believe there's a story this week there has been this deep feelings and deep statement from the demonstrators that they refuse repression you know debt has stepped out it has been some kind of some taste and on the side of the delay she had to repress the demonstrations and policemen have been. actively being beat it had been beaten in a street to that trying to prevent them to demonstrate still all of this whole week demonstrators now cheers get a break and all the whole side of that and as it were in the contract with us as well began to read in order to say no to rip christian this is all you can it's
10:02 pm
important evolution is just beginning it's that it doesn't make sense part of the maastricht has any mark soon reach a solution within the during the constitutional framework they state that this act and only discuss addition is totally used by the regime in order to stay in place so they are not merely waiting for any kind of a solution on the gas station on the regime site which is an important development actually ok so i had to why do they keep coming out to protest that if they're not waiting for any any development the interim president has said they'll be new elections on july fourth what's to stop the the the authorities just sitting by letting people protest the largely good humored that they're not the nonviolent. you know what's the point of people coming out week after week if no action is taken if it doesn't lead to any kind of action. truly important points first and has been to first. try and assist that stand up to demonstrate his knowledge you're
10:03 pm
not supposed to have been trying to reconstitute with each other you know death for people who have been experienced this kind of stupid worry don't in the ninety's it was very important to be able to stick together into street and look at that aside their. differences and that's what i do not think it was a very important steps in cannes and there have been discussions on the need to elect representatives are not just as leadership passed. because there is a kind of mistrust. in the laws any kind us political leadership and political classes of the opposition benches that have been trying to think about how to. harness and space the representatives and it had been some names uniting and then at trying to kind of constance just now turn to important step will scented important reason for why people are taking the streets week after week they are not trying to again that is their own institutional transition they actually took for
10:04 pm
example not recognising the also revealed that ministers they are trying to pull are in on strikes into the public companies and state companies and the actually to lead this is how can is a. modern turn the elections are tonight is their only elections which were not will be not directed to a lot of issues of a new president it's not smart to alter the election of the national constitution test only so you see there are two cowards and that's and i believe that unfortunately it does seem to continue to amend has the its own decisions and to us that had seeped out and people will do not exist well the object people we are denied their own transition and that's a risk of progression of course and that that's that's the main spiritually not you know. i'm a really good to talk to many thanks indeed imo because of that analogy is that you have got on there is a resident scholar at the carnegie middle east center in beirut she says the
10:05 pm
protesters in algeria well the momentum is unstoppable. they know now what they can achieve with their protest every friday but also with the daily protests you know shouldn't have been organizing the daily protests the union people row yours judges and so on so forth so i think the momentum is here and the start to call is a really winding up if i may say and i do believe because i lived it with them on several you know march that the algerians are not going to go back home before their demands are met and today their demands are very near white at the beginning they were asking for president would flee to leave today they are asking for the three b.'s to us meaning buried there but do we and been silent to leave and they are not happy with the president of transition being been silent because he is
