a mosque iran's leaders have said the latest move is another attempt to divide iranians trump has often said the revolutionary guard has a track record of sowing violence in the middle east and suppressing its own people but it stage managed events like this there are no counter protests no alternate narratives the i.r.g.c. is far too strong to criticize opens up oh but the fervor in this crowd can be taken as a fair measure of the national support the group enjoys the american decisions a brand new organization this terrorist has in iran by all accounts be a public relations opportunity for the r.t.c. to rally their supporters in the country and to strengthen what was already a very powerful position in iranian society tens of thousands of fighters millions of volunteers and a hold on iran's industrial economy nearly every aspect of life is somehow influenced by the i.r.g.c. beyond iran's borders the revolutionary guard helped push eisel out of iraq and.

same as here at the horizon the president donald trump says he is considering sending undocumented immigrants to so-called sanctuary cities they include new york and san francisco where local authorities refuse to cooperate with immigration and customs enforcement john hendren has a story from washington. president donald trump says he's considering releasing migrants detained at the border into so-called sanctuary cities across the u.s. will bring them to sanctuary city areas and let that particular area take care of it but if it becomes a reality the controversy will plan would be aimed at mostly democratic mayors in cities where police and local authorities declined to enforce u.s. immigration laws except in cases where the federal government has specifically requested help california certainly is always saying oh we want more people. and they want more people in their sanctuary cities well we'll give them more people we can give a lot we can give them an unlimited supply and let's see if they're so happy that
9:10 am
the president cited california cities such as san francisco home to the speaker of the house nancy pelosi who fired back at the president just another. notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the united states and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a country as a people to address who we are a nation of immigrants the mayor of another sanctuary city oakland california expressed outrage these are human beings families told her and to use them as political pawns in a game of then dick to venice just takes this administration to a whole new low level mayors say with the designation many undocumented immigrants declined to cooperate with police and other city officials for fear of being deported national security experts describe the idea floated by the president is clearly illegal he might be acting out of frustration he has been repeatedly stymied on immigration whether it's his travel ban funding for
9:11 am
a border wall or in his case the opposition of democratic mayors his own department of homeland security described this idea is floated and rejected but it's a pointed reminder that he is adept at using the considerable resources of his office to strike back at critics. trump's statement came amid an unusually early start to the twenty twenty presidential election one in which he is expected to again make immigration his signature issue john hendren washington. well helix co founder julian assange could face a renewed investigation into a rape allegation in sweden the un human rights office has urged traditional authorities to ensure a songe gets a fair trial forty seven miles arrested in london on thursday when ecuador provoked his asylum after seven years of living in its embassy he can now be extradited to the u.s. over his alleged role in one of the largest ever leaks of government secrets in two

thousand and ten a complex editor in chief told al-jazeera the organization has revolutionized investigative journalists are. the least productive members important influence of look at twenty third when we created a model of putting together resources in journalism that never happened before including a. huge media alliance that was copied by the international consortium investigative journalism and were working in a puddle of papers. the revelations were twenty. two to two take it from matthew cooper to extremely important stuff to do i guess military official has said its armed forces are ready to move and to then as whale an admiral craig follower heads the u.s. southern command and told foreign policy magazine intervention may be needed if sanctions fail to force president nicolas maduro from power a lot america alysia newman has more from porto and northern peninsula. what does the sinister star wars character darth vader and u.s.
9:13 am
economic sanctions against venezuela have in common. everything according to u.s. national security advisor john bolton he likens the sanctions to darth vader choking his enemy's throat that he says is what we're going to do to the regime economically the electricity's economic on this one and the economic crisis already existed long before the sanctions but the u.s. strategy is designed to provoke the total collapse of what it sees as the enemy. the u.s. treasury department has designated not. just in this whale is vital oil industry but its entire banking sector as a target of u.s. sanctions and that makes venezuela almost untouchable for companies and banks the do business with the united states this is one of venezuela's main ports for bringing in everything from food to fertilizer to manufactured goods but as you can see there is very little activity here according to the government this is because
9:14 am
u.s. financial sanctions are scaring off shipping companies and those who do venture to dock here are charging a premium. the sanctions are of course taking a toll on venezuela's already crumbling economy and on ordinary citizens the theory being that they will provoke a painful but a relatively quick ouster of president nicolas maduro. recent history however disproves this theory. look at the sanctions against cuba they remove the castro no they only hurt the lives of the cubans they remove assad in syria that they take out saddam in iraq or in zimbabwe know that you get rid of all of them because you applied sanctions no. in fact in the last three months the government has been busy finding ways to circumvent the sanctions and its latest foreign minister traveling the world over closing economic cooperation deals in countries like
9:15 am
turkey syria and south africa out of reach of sanctions. not to mention military and oil industry. the sense of an israeli was isolated nothing could be further from the truth we are working hard to diversify our commercial ties with all the countries there was much bigger than the united states and it's not the fifty countries that follow washington's order. these efforts are unlikely to reverse profound economic crisis but. could give me more room to maneuver the u.s. vows to tighten the financial news even further but if that doesn't work the united states could be tempted to resort to other more direct methods of obtaining regime change with all that they imply. you see in human where talk of a deal in israel. the idea of making reparations to the ancestors of enslaved people is actively discussed and the united states it's become an issue in the
9:16 am
presidential race and now on college campuses atika heinous a story from washington. short coloma is not your typical first year student at the prestigious georgetown university in washington d.c. and not because she's a few decades older than the typical student look at what my family did. look at what my family. her family is the reason georgetown didn't go bankrupt one hundred eighty years ago robert and mary mullaney my four tons great grandparents were sold with their ten children they were slaves owned by a roman catholic order the jesuits who ran the school and among the group of two hundred seventy two slaves that were sold by the school so it could continue to this day a couple of years ago georgetown officials apologized and offered the descendants of the slaves like cologne preferential treatment for admission to the school but now two thirds of the students have voted to do more they want to pay an additional
9:17 am
twenty seven dollars and twenty cents every semester for a kind of reparations fund it's not just being talked about by students but several democratic candidates for president have endorsed a nationwide system some ideas improved education for african-american students or a bond given to children at birth that they can cash in when they are adults in an attempt to close the income gap we have to remember that slavery went from at least that what we're talking about it under the united states went from seven hundred seventy six. two hundred sixty five so we're talking about eighty nine years so our opinion we have eighty nine years to fix. our wealth in order to close the wealth gap that would take two hundred twenty years and that would be everything being equal it would still take two hundred twenty years to close the wealth gap i think reparations can be a step still this is a controversial discussion but one that cologne believes needs to be talked about
9:18 am
and to those who say this is history a part of the past jesus was thousands of years ago we still talk about him the fundraise about four hundred thousand dollars a year the plan is to spend that money on charities to help the descendants where most of them live in louisiana and maryland the board of regents though still has to approve it and it's not at all clear that they will decide that this should be the first of its kind reparations program in the country. al jazeera washington. on our website right now is the lead story the changes in sudan keep it here. so here are these are the headlines right now on al-jazeera that of sudan's military transitional council has been replaced. stepped down after continued pressure from protesters another general will take its place the opposition movement in khartoum welcome the change but they're continuing to demand

a civilian led transitional council they also want to countability for the number of protesters killed sudan's place say at least sixteen people were killed on thursday and friday the military insists it will only be in charge for the next to yours. this is for the benefit of the nation without having to look at special interests small that may preclude its progress. or to say that this country has great people and the great. i would like to recommend you work together and hope that you would reach a solution very speedily i would also hope that this decision is not misinterpreted i wish my bro the success in what has been official to our country lonely. a peaceful and honorable country riot police algeria's capital have arrested more than one hundred people during protests calling for the interim president. to quit water cannon was used to disperse the crowds there protesters are demanding more

9:21 am
inside story is next. the day after the coup in sudan the military says it doesn't want power and is ready for dialogue but with no end to the protests is it ready for concessions how challenging will transitions be in this country this is inside still. hello welcome to the program and has
9:22 am
a secret we have no ambitions to hold the reins of power those were the words from the head of sudan's military council's political committee in response to ongoing protests in the capital hard to they follow the removal of longtime president on wanted by shia after thirty years in power. said the army has no ambitions to lead the country and will respect the demands of the people he also guaranteed a new government run by civilians not the military stability security and order he said all the key priorities will that be enough to satisfy the protesters could this be the dawn of a new era for sudan of the head of the military council's political committee also said the army will simply keep order joining the transition period but will act if there's violence or on unrest. we will not interfere
9:23 am
we will closely monitor from a distance we will not dictate any orders but we must be practical and realistic this is simply to maintain security and public order that's why i request the sudanese people support the military to stand behind the military and we are unknown figures you have just come to know us may god bless the leader of the previous coup we are his children we will support all the people's demands and we will protect the people's demands yet we will respond firmly to any chaos. so let's bring in our guests now joining me here in doha is worried my debo the founder and president of sudan a policy forum from hard to move via skype mamadu i was eight a sudanese civil rights activist and filmmaker and in berlin. sudan research a and ph d. candidate at yale university good to have your with us so well lead what did you
9:24 am
make then of the press conference that took place this friday from the head of the political council of the military council essentially saying that we're not interested in power that we're here to carry out the people's wishes and so on he seemed to be saying all of the right things but is it going to be enough for the protesters who have been out in the streets for weeks now. as a matter of fact they are seeing all of that i think this was the wrong heart is the wrong intention i believe that all what has been said today goes in line with what. the head of the council has said the military coast this is a top who remove us on one of the shia from power. i consider. what they have done and what they have said as a spit on the face of the army and the sudanese people they could have called they
9:25 am
needed all of this was the civic polity with the professionals union and some other political parties and was the armed arm is the sudanese army main is structured in a state they toss to do with this so-called. with security so that the security council and that's that's not. a body that's in to get a sudanese army so that they have they in a way they have betrayed their own people. i mean their own colleagues in the military army and they caused two. to circumvent the political dialogue there was a dialogue there was a declaration of freedom and change and they could have done it the right way in a state they chose this way and they are not totally naive nor there nor are they
9:26 am
innocent i mean they are ill intentioned and they cause to do this simply because they are part of the extra game so it's just that he deems that he inventing itself and when i say it's it's a spit on the face of the sudanese people i mean to say that they have taught that by so doing they have totally up boarded the sudanese people's mean objective which is this associate associating themselves totally from the previously game. we know that they have main challenges in doing this they have a structure of talent and behavioral and institutional telling i'm going to start with the structural one. chose not to disassociate associate itself from the islamist ideology which has been the cause behind decision of the south the
9:27 am
genocide in darfur. it has harbored terrorists who have terrorized that region the african region attempt to terrorize to terrorize the arab world and the international community and even where they have totally compromised the independence and integrity of the nation by offering it for sale i mean the president was just the president for sale and that's and that's why no one wanted to give up on him until the very last moment when they realize they he's no longer a president so that's that's just the ideological structural telling now we can go on to the behavioral issue which is it me off himself the hit of this military council. the guy is accused of a genocide for we all know that if you're coming out over to total it here you can redeem you need to make some sort of an agreement with the army however
9:28 am
i mean you everyone expected them to choose somebody with an integrity and a clear moral history instead they chose to go with the law gauche and even off whereas we know that there are excellent mean in the military who would have been very much accepted by the sudanese people and a transition could have been well i mean with the city's polity let's get managers take on this what's the mood in khartoum right now after the latest announcement from the military this friday i mean do you do you take them at their word when they say that they're not greedy for power and that they want to work. with people and have a dialogue with people moving forward. i can i can speak about. how the mood is overall in my country not only in her but all sudanese people
9:29 am
feel one thing and i think the first time in thirty years i would say ninety percent of the syrian you people feel happy they're proud of their children but at the same time the happiness could not be complete because. michael you have mentioned earlier. they're playing the thing game they're just turning around the table selling their cards being. who can represent their ideology their ideas rather than and vitiate when he was forced to step down over all of them would assessed its positives people are anticipating other speeches from the national from the sudanese professional association. nobody's believing a word single where it's wanted no it's not and their quest very clear from the start any street and we want to dissect the national cause their party omar bashir and regime and all his followers and we won them to be out of.
9:30 am
power and then afterwards we want fair elections that. we get to decide how the country's future will be. what we saw the day often is kind of mol mol flesh being put on the bones if you like in terms of of what the what the picture is going to be moving forward and the military say they are responding to the wishes of the people are they. well i think the sudanese are taking these announcements of a healthy dose of skepticism as we've already heard i think there are two reasons for that first is the identity of these people who in their inherited power. was is the head of the national intelligence security services which has been as a forefront of the repression against against a political position in sudan and of easily. been out of. it was the head
9:31 am
of the military intelligence during the conflict in darfur and coordinating ginger with me to show us so the identity of the city of this system in figures in the new in the new in the new system should should give pause the second point i think is that these statements that have been made today in this press conference are already at odds with some of the actions that the new military council took to guess today it could secularly the claims that. the meter is going to let demonstrators in the streets is to declare ition of a curfew the claim that the military to want to hold onto power he's contradicted by the fact that as has been said already that they've not given civilians any role in the process so far now that being said and so the reaction is clear and people are seeing on the streets today in khartoum now that being said i do think that the
9:32 am
conciliatory tone is very significant because it shows that the this this new leadership is and battle that he doesn't have the confidence to tell protesters now we have a transition you should go home clearly they are in their way. sensitive to the pressure of the street and they feel like at least that they have to justify themselves and to reassure people and that shows i think that the strategy of the opposition which is to maintain the pressure is working. how long how long do you think these protests can can go on and what in your mind needs to be done to to come to a last thing solution you think. it could go on for ever. for as long as that again doesn't change is its strategy at the sudanese people are
9:33 am
willing to put pressure to continue putting pressure on the sudanese army to stand up and play its role. as that it presented the role of the national sovereignty i think we were trying to avoid any rupture in the hierarchy of the sudanese army by accepting this de facto reality of some of his engineering the transition but what we see now is we see. some officers are trying to bypass the army so the army is going to feel compelled to take an action again is this group of and his. group of ideologues who have just hijacked the platform it's just some sort of a hijacking of a platform it's not going to be accepted neither by the people nor by the army so
9:34 am
we have we are at cross or tozzi. we can either if they do if the army decides to remove more of. bush and bring him out and we says that this is the head of the sudanese intelligence yes that's right if you remove unwanted figures then i think the sudanese politicians or at least the union the professionals union will be able to discuss some sort of a transitional move with them. and i think it's doable if if they don't then it is likely to have been and it's going khartoum is just going to be in bloodshed it's just going to be a swamp of blood and god forbid if that happens then the region is going to be totally this is. not only sudan but the whole sudan it built and this is what
9:35 am
the international community has to face i mean they need to take some precautionary measures and they cannot just wait until it happens they need to figure this out ahead of time and just put pressure on this again because that a human is already weak it's getting some some money from here and there they are receiving bribes from some neighboring countries and this is what is hitting the sudanese people morse because they feel that for almost thirty years even more their integrity has been compromised their sovereignty has been compromised and they need they need to have good relationships obviously was the whole world especially the african countries and the other countries but but in order to do that they need to have. leadership that is that is willing to listen to the sudanese people pay tribute to the stakeholders before going out to the outside
9:36 am
world. well it brings up the point there about the danger of this spiraling into violence how did you share that fear that things could turn violent at some point in the future incident. also it would mention god forbid that things turn violent but we've seen a lot of videos witnessed that hundreds of thousands of people experience this fear millions of people into the next. sorry millions of families actually worried about their kids children walking around in the street going to schools. there was a general feeling of warre and and an uncertainty when people go out on the street as if something bad is going to happen and all of this is because of the of the regimes militias who are identified.
9:37 am
figures they're there driving around the cities. covering their faces using weapons against peaceful protesters will keep repeating the same thing sydney is that mean which means peaceful peaceful it will always be peaceful and this from the side of the public from the side of the protest as a matter what happens when never lift a weapon and if you think about it. probably if you count thirty out of one hundred houses in every city and how soon we can see thirty percent of every house and helpful i would say they would at least have a weapon or or they would have the ability to acquire a weapon so it's not a point for fear from the public to go out in the street is the point of dignity of self respect maintaining the position of being on the right side always constantly we've done it before in one nine hundred sixty four we've done it before nine hundred eighty nine and now we're doing it and i think that the youth the people
9:38 am
who are needing distribution i would say is not a part that the people i read or needing this ribbon commission are educated people are not. they're not people who build their knowledge on their past they go on story we read we. added to the stories that we hear from our companies we read we research we understand who is the most to be aware and mismanagement of the country is happening only due to the fact that. their responsibility and authorities have are being given to those who don't really deserve it and do not seek anything other than self benefit. is there a fear on the street. from or concerned about having. an attack from any area yes there is of course there is this fear today it was friday prayers i was there there was a general fear that things might go without it but let's just hope for the best and
9:39 am
let's hope that the sudanese government will have enough blood on their hands and they will listen to the street because the streets will always always always when i want to ask you as well mama do about the economic situation there are huge economic challenges in sudan of course because these protests began as as protests against the high food prices and fuel prices and so on so whoever is in power in sudan is going to have to deal with that on that. definitely i mean you can can you think about a country that the leader of the country they're living the best the fanciest and the most comfortable life meanwhile their neighbors who are about ten or fifteen meters away from their house they actually struggle to maintain a normal a very average life of three kids in the house that you need to feed them not a luxurious life we're only talking about being able to pay expenses for your kids'
9:40 am
school for for buying them clothes for having once in a month taking them out to have started to. do that can you think of a country that the current terrier races from. from in two thousand and ten one hundred u.s. dollars used to be worth of two hundred eighty pound two thousand and seventeen one hundred us dollars with about a thousand and seven hundred pound what two thousand and eighteen in march two thousand and eight pm the hundred dollars from three thousand and two hundred pounds until today it bumped up up to seven thousand eight hundred pound this is this is an unexpected for human beings to live in can you believe that a doctor who graduates fyfe years of medicine medical school and then thirty two extra years of their life and practice it they get paid a salary of what is the equivalent of about sixty u.s. dollars for working an entire month an entire month and you get paid sixty u.s.
9:41 am
dollars in salary now why can you believe that such a government is trying to initiate dialogue how can you initiate dialogue if you can't even give. the normal people who are working so hard and studying most of their life and only chance to have a normal life i mean the term normality is very subjective but let's talk about the right. there are so many artists and there's still many musicians only actually they don't they're not asking for support there are people only for a chance for expressing themselves. what do you want to jump in here one door saying is absolutely right but i think. the structure level unless and until a political settlement is a reach for sudan's problems which sudan is not only khartoum i mean you
9:42 am
do have the periphery and fifty seven percent of the sudanese land according to the un is declared. a war zone so unless and until you reach for a political settlement with all groups you can develop you can put out international development is try to be needless be able to attract you know highly qualified men and women to do to enhance i mean the institutional capacity of a nation which has been deliberately destroyed an economy which has been totally destroyed but. alluded to a very important point which is the whole issue of dignity you know the sudanese people now they feel very much humiliated by the noise and noticing that the people who have committed atrocities against their own kid them in who have killed people deliberately embezzled money. it's about amount of money that is you know is
9:43 am
timothy to have be visit out of the country is like one hundred twenty billion dollars you see the horse people walking industry it and the military council is saying is not saying that we have put into gear is saying that you know we have to resist we have put them in somebody's civs and they are even providing them protection protection from whom i mean these are peaceful protesters people who expect you know the clean minutes to be brought to justice but prior to bringing them to justice you have to put them in jail we hear rumors that the u.s. man is enjoying life in his own farm nothing is there so many criminals are outside and this is a very human mother whose giant has been killed or shot in the here or to test. i want to just wideness out a little bit in the time we have left if i can there's been
9:44 am
a lot of comparisons drawn between what's what's happened in sudan and the scenario that's been playing out in algeria similar situation there longtime leader forced out of power because of continued protests the military steps in to. to to carry this out and be kind of seen as the voices of voice of the people as it were what powers would you draw. from for that and is this part of a pattern that we're seeing in this region. well i don't know if i would venture any policies algeria because this is not like a country of expertise but one parallel would be actually read with tunisia benelli sled and the fourteenth of january two thousand and eleven because of a mutiny from the ministry of interior and now the story that has come out that has kind of built itself in the media and in academia but the success story is that
9:45 am
somehow the country was kind of predetermined to be successful because of its strong civil society strong state and so on but when you look at what happened in the first weeks of the transition actually been at least close i they inherited power and the reason they had conceded to elections for a constituent assembly is because the opposition kept the pressure of the street pressure for over the period of a few weeks and i think this is an important lesson to for sudan and i think this is a lesson that the sudanese have heeded all right i'd like to go back to the risk of violence i do think i do think there is a real risk of violence and the most likely scenario would be part of the regime attempting a coup against the military council but it's important to bear in mind that this risk is in everyone's mind including among the leaders of the military and security
