there's there are things they could do they can try to enforce the their their own southern border but ultimately what the us is asking them to do is to turn themselves into some sort of east germany where they they build walls and whatever else to make it impossible to leave mexico and that seems. completely reasonable the band to make well let's not take a closer look at the escalating trade war between the u.s. and china beijing is imposing tariffs ranging from 5 to 25 percent on $60000000000.00 worth of american imports it's also planning to unveil a list of foreign companies that it considers unreliable that's seen as a response to u.s. attempts to block the global expansion of chinese tech giant huawei and china is threatening to restrict exports of rare earth minerals that many u.s. companies rely on and a tangan is a china analyst and economist he says china is responding carefully in order to avoid hurting its own people. for china they see this is
9:01 am
a. case of the united states taking security and trade and politics and combining them in and all kind of pressure front donald trump seems to be taking a blunderbuss or a shotgun to these particular issues not only in china but around the world for china it's much more of a issue of a rifle what they're doing is they're being instituted new tariffs today but though those are very carefully calibrated to make sure that this is not going to rebound or there will be very little effect on chinese consumers there are no winners in a trade war and in this particular case it's not only the u.s. and china involved it will be the whole world because what you're starting to see is this kind of contagion which is going to affect not only companies in the u.s. but other places if china goes ahead with any kind of reduction in the numbers of in the amounts of rare earths that are going to the united states that
9:02 am
could be very very damaging specially over the short term it's very difficult to see how this is going to end if this kind of tit for tat thing goes on but beneath all of this it seems to be a tremendous amount of anger and concern in the united states i think mostly driven by the fact that over the last 30 years 90 percent of the american public has experienced 8.4 percent decrease in their real income meanwhile during that same period the u.s. was the lion's share of 2 thirds of the world's profits which are flowing to the developed world it just seems that this is that china's feels that it's being singled out. still ahead on out as their full honors and a fond farewell to invest for an opposition leader in the democratic republic of congo. plus a ringing endorsement from across the atlantic donald trump throws his weight behind bars johnson's campaign to be persons next prime minister.

9:09 am
$1200.00 indigenous women since 1980 but the exact number is thought to be much higher it blames deep rooted colonialism and stated action for a disproportionate level of violence faced by indigenous women indigenous women make up 4 percent of canada's population but account for up to 24 percent of homicide victims more than 2000 witnesses took part in the inquiry and puting survivors and relatives of the missing woman she has returned he has more from ottawa. the commission is in charge of this inquiry said they're going to talk about the findings of that report until monday when the report is officially released at the building behind me they say that's in deference to the thousands who took part in the inquiry and meetings around the country over 2000 people sharing what they call the truth is with the commission has some who called for the inquiry some of those in the indigenous community have welcomes the use of the word genocide but the same question that hung over this inquiry when it began hangs over
9:10 am
it now now or so this is the 1st inquiry into the problems plaguing indigenous communities in canada we've had several in the past that do seem to come up with the same convergence of factors social and economic exclusion official racism official violence official indifference the cultural war that was declared on in the communities in canada but in the past off those reports despite promises from prime minister justin trudeau just 3 years ago after the truth and reconciliation commission to implement all the recommendations off the inquiry of the commission nothing or very little has actually happened the question this time around once again is so what's going to be different this time once again prime minister today says he will implement some $125.00 recommendations in this report but it is difficult to believe now police in the u.s. state of virginia say the suspected gunman and friday's mass shooting appear to have force as weapons legally. was an engineer for the city of virginia beach

9:12 am
we immediately returned fire the weapon was a 45 caliber handgun with a silencer and magazine extenders such extenders were once banned in the us but became legal again in 2004 democratic presidential hopefuls expressed outrage on twitter calling for more gun control but as images of the newest mass shooting played out on american television screens the public remains divided on what to do next. guns don't kill people people kill people. such attitudes still dominate washington where republicans swayed by the powerful n.r.a. gun lobby have consistently fought to preserve gun ownership rights i'm just going through a lot of emotion because it's way too much killing going on and i'm just glad that they alert. enough time the thoughts and prayers continue to pour in adding drops to a sea of grief in a nation where the pace of these mass shootings has dramatically accelerated but

more news here to inside story to stay with us. the call for democracy grows louder in sudan opposition protesters demand civilian role while supporters of the military say only the army can guarantee stability so can these 2 sides negotiate some sort of solution this is inside story.
9:22 am
but i for 1 am come out santa maria welcome to inside story it has been nearly 2 months since sudan's military deposed the longtime leader all met up a shia and since then it's been a lot of talking there's been a lot of protesting but not much progress talks on sudan's political future have stalled for now people are venting their frustration opposition groups want the military to hand over power to a civilian leader and are defying warnings to end a sit in outside the army's headquarters in khartoum meanwhile supporters of the military council held a rival demonstration in the city they say only the army can bring peace. well any choice is a military led authority in order to protect society and we support our brothers at the city and it will void it was the only way to get our prices especially with all the trouble in the neighboring countries for the army to bring saddam to safety and . you know this it in here is aimed at lobbying for
9:23 am
a national unity government when the government says that the sit in here causes harm to the people it is a crash nation so as not to meet the demands of the demonstrators to form a new government i'll introduce you to our guests in just a moment but 1st a reminder of how we have reached this point of course it was the sudanese army which removed president bashir on april 12th after a popular uprising that began as a protest over high living costs the transitional council was set up by the military with a massive scene outside the army headquarters protest leaders held talks with the council and eventually reached an agreement on a 3 year transitional period the talks broke down though over just who would lead a new joint transitional government protesters then held a nationwide strike to pressure the military to hand power to civilians the military responded by declaring their city in a danger to sudan and also closed al jazeera office in khartoum. all right so here's our panel with me in the studio where lead here is the founder
9:24 am
and president of the sudan policy forum or nice to see you in glasgow we've got. senior lecturer at kiel university in the u.k. but i'm going to start on the phone from khartoum now a last minute civil society activists who has been protesting since the demonstrations began in december so now well tell us are you happy to continue protesting despite the government wanting you to stop and well almost threatening you over these are continuing protests outside the army headquarters. yes thank you for having me with you in this program. right now there in front of the military council but if they get caught i mean they are really fine and their morning will you only find more than before around the 3 principals are going to peace see them on justice and now they are more unified and they have read that big slugger and that is the c 1000000000 government and only p.p.p.
9:25 am
and government this is their demand and they are much more they're not moving a bit from it and they are more so even they are going through hardship of the weather and the fasting their muslim fasting that's still so much strong they are unified and they are determined tomake determined you see that they want of for the civilian government. companies and the defendant to do this justice system to ensure that nobody is over or beyond the low and also the 30 meter conquered people they are a continuation of the previous regime and well you know already tell you there is an interruption a while you know worried you talk about the unity and the strength and the numbers and the passion that people have but worried about what the army could are threats of this could turn violent. let me tell you we have this is a peaceful peaceful evolution it's thinking the ideal of peace peace
9:26 am
and and this is what it makes it last longer and still they are going to use all their weapons to peacefully work on and the last one is the t.v. video disobedience and that is coming soon and that is it on a lot of great you know so it is not about these like afraid and the us the us and the people who are sitting there in front of the military council i tell you let me tell you they don't care they said we have nothing to lose. no well let me know if democrats set up anything ok no i'll stay on the line for me there i'm going to bring in our other guests now to get some reaction to what you've been saying well they let's start with you because you and i were talking before we started the show and you talked about the 2nd phase of this revolution you felt there was a fear that it could turn violent now in the world is telling us they're not worried the young people they're energized they're ready they are passionate they are not worried about this the young men and women are very courageous they
9:27 am
realize that the everybody realizes that the very group that has killed or influenced the killing of half a 1000000 in the periphery of so that they are capable of killing at least 5000 if not 50000 in khartoum but what is that going to king i mean if they kill half of the population of khartoum the basic principle is stance that the sudanese people want a quick transition to a civilian democratic rule and for me i call it the 2nd phase because at the beginning all they deceived all of us into thinking that you know we we stand by you we want to ensure that everything goes is mostly. the procedure and substantively but now everybody realizes that this group is is just invites to is just part of 2 or all of they just really placed on what are
9:28 am
bashir but the system they want to ensure that the system. institutionally is intact the same the same i mean autocratic system the same. group of i mean. islamists are in place and they they made no effort no effort whatsoever to bring anyone to justice they haven't shown any seriousness no the protest that is called by into all. to think that you know despite the difficulties you know these. commanders are doing whatever possible to make the transition they should north any north whatsoever to tell their people that they have given in to the demands of the protesters and that is what is bringing the hype a little bit. and i think now they are preparing themselves to
9:29 am
a confrontation with the civilians got for a bit if they start shooting people during ramadan they are going to at least kill 5 to 10000 individuals in that city in this hour lalo your thoughts on this i mean well it is painting an unfortunate grim sort of scenario there but the point he makes i think and i'd like to get your view on is the fact that really nothing changes and most importantly nothing changes as far as trust goes there is no trust there is no belief from the civilians and protesters in this military. and i fully agree with him i think one of the things that we have to realize in the context of dunn is the fact that you know the revolution didn't bring about a rupture between the past and the present there is a continued of the same institution and this institution of belief by the military that is to belittle is more important than demands for freedom in a democracy is
9:30 am
a discourse that has been present incidences finance dependence that's why sudan has been. ruled by military generals but the fact of the matter as balls been highlighting is that stability and security on the one hand and democracy on the other are not mutually exclusive i.d.'s mutually exclusive principles they receive pockley reinforce each other imperatives so stoney's people came out and asked even with. al bashir the monday no for taking some pretty brutal major been around they took on him and i don't think they will back down now. you know once they have paid the sacrifice have got to this stage and i think it's very important at this point that the board size consider very carefully what this confrontation would have been a nobody would benefit out of this is no well known on the phone from khartoum i
9:31 am
hope you could hear what i thought guest was saying that they have a lot of concerns about the future and about the threat of a confrontation what the opposition do to try to mitigate that to try to stop there being any confrontation. yes i think that they should open the pain that their lot and the you know the discussion about how to get between the military council and the opposition group but as a matter of fact what was a protest to say that we managed to get it all off although she had a right to state for a dictator what state or 30 years and it is not going to be difficult for us we are going to use the same with one which is peaceful protest protest and peaceful laws and this is going to happen again and this is work then tired you know time that is they say this is what they are doing and as a matter of fact. to reach it's come i think it's coming to an end also because
9:32 am
it seems like. the government. you know between the ideology of the people who are taking over the military council and the protesters i think there is no there is no there is no a come on come on cause for them you know and this is that this is the reason why there is no there is no solution now but you know they're just whatever happened to copy and they want to see didn't government that's what they want whatever it takes and to take it to have this civilian government ok hold on well what did you want to say i think somewhere in between we seem to forget about the role of the diminishing role of the forces of freedom and to. see the ones who should be shoe should have been negotiating on behalf of the protesters or mediating between the. military transitional military council and the
9:33 am
protesters i think ever see the forces of freedom and have failed the rule big time and by so doing they are putting these protesters in defense of the din of the millions. of. there are many the military council attempted to bribe some of the leaders of the forces freedom and clean through through their proxies in delhi don't they and they have attempted to bring in some. using some tribal leaders tribal leaders i mean these are the very. this is the very constituency that ormerod bashir has been using for like 50 years and it is the very constituency that has i mean. the that was put at the disadvantaged by by diddy game co-opting it's the that so the
9:34 am
game i mean the military council is not is sticking to its all as a condition a military concept is trying to play with its thin it's trying to be good to meet it's political it's trying to bribe him some leaders from the if of c. . there are already spoilers 32 played this old. traditional leaders or somebody that's who have been kicked out of the s.p.l. him. so. we need to focus more on bringing the association of professional to these these are the very people who are fairest lid this that evolution now that of law has been brought in they have been downplayed their role have been downplayed by the presence of the forces of freedom and change ok and we need they need to stand up to their duty and to lead to provide a reality that she for the protests that lets us are all about that there is the
9:35 am
opposition suffering from was it has unity in power from a lack of leadership from a lack of a strong figurehead or at least a cohesive negotiating team a strong negotiating team to try to work with the transitional military council. so i think when you have such a broad and diverse group of actors soon society groups opposition political parties rebel movements professional associations who have different ways of doing things coming together out deal with the stablish when you are bound to have difficulties in those discussions and i think one of the things that the opposition group need in order to stay together as a quasi force is a leadership a unifying leadership that speaks for all of them if everybody speaks for themselves and they only come together during the negotiation and i think that makes it very very difficult you know as the guest from doha was saying the
9:36 am
military would of course to do everything it can to divide them to some of the groups in order to get what it wants and i think it's absolutely crucial that they focus on internal cohesion and quite heaton's as an organization to be able to take on the military and i think over the last few days we have clearly seen a pivot if significant people from the military council both internally but also on some regional issues and that suggest that the military council might be considering. you know completely going beyond this these negotiations and asserting it so all i think is important for both sides to go back to the drawing table and try and work out not just the kind of deal that is on the table now and i think one of the sticking point from what we know so far is the composition of the military council maybe i think there is ground to explore again what
9:37 am
powers that military council has so you know there are various restitution is and i think they can work around you know by tinkering into some of the arguments i would really be grateful that they could find some kind of balance and i think it's absolutely crucial for was. to get this do you think i will come to you in a 2nd why do you think that the military in the back of its mind is thinking about what we've seen in the arab world and in north africa in the past i know it's a very sort of lazy comparison to say oh arab spring of 2011 a replay of that i know it's different but still that idea that the protesters could win that idea that people power could win against a military rule that that would worry them wouldn't. no absolutely absolutely i think what we see already in sudan is a replay of the script that was played in in egypt egypt in the sudan.
9:38 am
culturally not exactly the same also politically not the same i think there are values forces within sudan who have been for a very long period of time demanding political autonomy the 2 countries are very different but also they are close in some ways so that i think the likelihood that the military might be seeking some advise from neighboring egypt is very high but also i think there is the bigger picture the regional rivalries. in my view there are 2 basically 2 major axes in that in this political battle in the middle east on the one hand you have turkey and qatar what i call the turkey qatar axis on the other hand you have the u.a.e. and saudi arabia and the contestation between these forces has been playing out not just in the region but also in the horn of africa and sudan was
9:39 am
a crucial political states in terms of that battle and both sides have been investing strategic assets for example in sudan and the reason why the inverse of strategic assets is not for economy purposes they're mainly. us a fast track just that were created to expand in to strengthen their own strategic foothold so what we see now with the support from saudi arabia and u.a.e. for for in terms of the budget for sudan and also the expression by the head of the military council recently supporting saudi arabia i think that also shows that the military is most likely considering very strongly to find a way to stay in power while it how potentially influential are those regional powers do you think i mean it's the same it's the usual suspects saudi arabia
9:40 am
u.a.e. age of taken. you know i think if we go back to history sudan has been in and the globe british condominium broad between. 899-1956 and since then. sudan has not been has not succeeded in escaping the influence of regional parts i mean especially north an elite they were very much affiliated with egypt and you have the bath is fleeting themselves with. iraq in and then near to on opposition the north an opposition who was very much affiliated with the bia but this is the very famous time that we see than in a very blatant manner i mean what's their agenda what is saudi arabia and the u.a.e. in egypt want out of this i personally. think that probably they want
9:41 am
a proxy steere. did that can provide them with. swords you know this. is where you know land can be exploited for i mean to provide food security for those countries in that he don't but i think strategically speaking it's going to affect them it's going to negatively affect them in the future because if you have or august the if you have havoc on this or that in sudan. the knack of security in sudan is going to influence the security of egypt it's very much going to influence the security of saudi arabia and if saudi arabia is very much. no it is about the security of. then i mean a rogue state like sudan is going to negatively affect the i mean the safety the security of israel because as the israelis themselves say i mean north i mean port
9:42 am
sudan which is the eastern part of the country is more important to their security than. itself. so there are there are some very serious issues but what i am what i am concerned about is those countries disrupting the political process in sudan the internal process. because sudan needs and needs to be given its time and space too much your political eden to some how into a democratic transition we may not necessarily go into a liberal democracy but at least some sort of. democracy and that is going to help them achieve their long term strategic objectives starting to run down the clock is one more item i want to address and that has to do with us al jazeera has you'll know the government decided to shut down our offices there i mean it seems to be a classic sort of play doesn't it try to shut down the media try to shut down the
9:43 am
voices at how concerned you think you about about media freedom i guess. i think again the. again they are not adopting the right tactic i mean even if you have some allegiance to to some group in that region you should then show your bias in a very blunt monitor because again the protesters are very much going saying about some very basic idea that protecting the national sovereignty of the state and i had to i hope for one of the guests to have brought out the issue of if you're not not. not receiving well the president of sudan and just sending a 2nd delegation to receive him at the airport the troika the usaid the pressure and the international and that pressure is going to our to be any influence that
9:44 am
any any support or assistance that they might be getting from the condominium estates condominium estates now i call them so that is now and condominium influence. the 3 countries that we know but going back to the whole issue of disease. and defeatists in our defeat this 20 years sudan was very much of. a lie and or affiliated with this islamic axis and. it didn't help us at all as a matter of fact it had it influenced the secession of south sudan because we were not so denecke in our way or thinking and now we are going into this axis and it's going to help decide up the political process because we are a black nation we sudan is multi diverse multi ethnic country it needs to have. to focus more into developing its own i didn't write which pretty much
9:45 am
leans to development in i mean in the material sense but. i just want to leave the final word to just before we run out of time i will work your final thoughts on and while they've made a good point there sudan needs to do this itself doesn't it and it's been an organic process up until now and for it to be successful whichever way it happens and needs to carry on that way. i absolutely i think one of the kind of unique features of the sony through illusion is the fact that it was so organic the protesters organized themselves a very natural process but it's collated very quickly and they were successful in terms of over storing bashir but i think it's very important that instead of looking outside to the international community i think the sudanese are as organized political communities of everything that it takes to challenge the military of course a good thing if the international community uphold thoughts and principles african

union has given sudan 2 months time to hunt over power to the 1000000 rule that too much time is running out and i don't think the military council is going to meet that deadline but i think the primary. push has to come from the saudis themselves and sudanese shouldn't put too much hope on external actors how will alow in glasgow i thank you well ladies sorry i'm out of time with a video here in doha and than the last one who is on the phone as well from khartoum and thank you for watching as well plenty more for you online of al-jazeera dot com this program and all our other additions are in the inside story section in the show's menu i didn't get social whether facebook dot com for a.j. inside story or so twitter at a.j. inside story and i'm at come on jane if you want to tweet me directly thanks so much for joining us so you can sing to.
