1:02 pm
a number of protesters injured in the crackdown on monday are being treated security forces opened fire on crowds gathered outside the army headquarters in khartoum on monday morning the heads of the military joined says they will no longer negotiate with protesters and have called for a general election within 9 months internet services remain down in large parts of the country alexia brian begins our coverage with this report on the latest developments. oh. saddam is mourning its date after the military june to crush the camp that protesters saw as a symbol of the revolution. thousands were killed and injured and hours of violence it's all troops opened fire on unarmed demonstrators and in hospitals in khartoum and beyond the military says it will investigate. the visit with our mothers who are solo or the military counselor sorry for what
1:03 pm
happened this morning for the bench that surpass or previous plans we know there's nothing more precious than preserving life and the leader of the council that's ruled saddam since it ousted president omar al bashir an april also called for elections but is the us going to the military has decided to seize negotiations with the declaration of freedom and change forces until elections are held within 9 months with regional and international supervision all those from the previous regime who've committed crimes will come before the courts approaches does want the military to hand over power to civilians immediately especially after monday's crackdown. that cured people. appear election are going to be what we want to have a good life if you manage the public would not be met unless. you count removed from the rule. talks between the military john to and protest leaders were suspended 2 weeks ago after the 2 sides failed to agree on who will lead during the
1:04 pm
transitional period i think you were not talking about in negotiation with demands of need to be met it's a process of hard over of all and i think the military council passed on that astound is not about give and take this is a demand from the people who will lead the revolution. with hundreds of protesters arrested and internet caught many a skeptical about the gentle agenda and willingness for change we all want to feel like but you know unfortunately it's how you get there and the testimonies of people on the ground for little information that we're getting out of you on the ground looks like the gentry is doing what they've done historically which is you know go home to home an arrest people so you know i have 2 hours we're going to be left to stand for election that's the big issue and who's going to be allowed to stand for election. then. the army says the only way out of the crisis is
1:05 pm
through the ballot box the protesters are vowing to keep up the pressure with mass demonstrations and a general strike. and al-jazeera. let's bring in our just here is mom advantage was recently in khartoum covering the protests so we have a situation now where we have the army saying the military saying that they will be no more negotiations with the protesters that they'll be elections in 9 months what are the plans what are the military intentions going forward and what about the protesters what do they do now but apparently fully with regards to the military it's clear that. they're going to do what they have announced over the night. the not going to negotiate until unless there is a new type of pressure put on them during the next few weeks but if they can have it their way they will not negotiate and they will organize an election within a year and we have seen scenarios like this in other countries who want to stay in power and the expectation in sudan i talked to some people they told me the
1:06 pm
expectation is that if they have their way they will organize an election on their own terms and or someone else from the top leaders will run for president and the next top man will be his defense minister we have seen these other countries so that's not serving tension with regards to the protesters their plan is to. continue the demonstrations their plan is to yesterday they have announced a civil disobedience we have seen the airports not functioning yesterday no civil aviation disruptions we have seen of so in some of the banks to the eat they have gone to prayers the interestingly the military council announced that it should be tomorrow and not today more so than is hard not to listen to that because that's an un mutual situation in sudan and right now as we speak there are cracking down on prego as people who go to the brain trying to prevent them from going to the sites where the organize that prayer. so here you have this confrontation is already.
1:07 pm
fully going there between dealing ring of a heavy military presence right now on the streets of khartoum and of course we'll keep a close eye on that you talked about the pressure and i will touch on that in just a moment and talk about the role of the regional countries the regional heavyweights like egypt but is there right now internally in sudan is there anyone who can step in and take on the military establishment the military what about the political opposition where are they novice the political opposition stern is printed like never before even some of. the parties that were you know members of the freedom and change the collaboration now they are you know going back on the other you know in that alliance but. they are now in a situation where you don't know where they stand and very obviously they are standing with the military council and they are against you know the decisions of
1:08 pm
the freedom to change so that's a very very dangerous situation on the part of the opposition so that has never never been really a united front and this is the worst moment it is seen in its history so we can't count nobody else that is counting on that to additional opposition they're talking only about a revolution of these and those are a coalition of youth who are not even politicized and not more militarized not organized and normal people and also the you know those few parties in the freedom of change who have decided to go ahead and not to be you know submitted or subdued by the military council monod let's take a closer look now at the role of regional powers the crackdown on protesters follow meetings between sudan's military leaders and some foreign powers last month the head of sudan's military general abdel fattah abu dhabi's crown prince mohammed bin ziad in the day before that he met egypt president abdel fattah el-sisi in cairo egypt has said it's a poor saddam's military council so has the u.a.e.
1:09 pm
$470.00 general mohammed doggle also known as he met he has also just visited saudi arabia to attend a series of emergency summit saudi arabia and the u.a.e. have offered about $3000000000.00 to sudan to support saddam's economy after all ma bashir was deposed in april the protesters are calling for an end to what they say is foreign interference in their country now of course everyone outside of sudan is looking closely at how the situation develops because wherever sudan goes the rest of africa goes of course egypt has publicly pledged to honor the will of the sudanese people after the crackdown on monday but we. no and we see that they've provided significant assistance to the military gent and so have the u.a.e. and saudi arabia how is this regional influence going to shape the future of sudan what do these countries get in leaving the military establishment in place
1:10 pm
well they got a lot they want sudan to be a part of the of the sphere of saudi arabia the united arab emirates we are watching what they are doing in libya we are watching what they are doing in yemen they want sudan to be included in that they want to control it's through a military dictator and this is a golden opportunity for them because remember. bashir the former president he tried to you know balance his relationship with saudi arabia with his relationship with other countries and he even though he sent troops to yemen he did not fully felice who was not like a yes man to saudi arabia to right 100 percent so they don't want that they don't want anyone who can say no to them they want sudan to be in the sphere but what about the great international players the un the e.u. the african union they have all come out and condemned the violence but will they put more pressure on these regional allies on saudi arabia the u.a.e. will the u.n. security council when it meets later today come up with anything concrete. i want to reflect what the sudanese say they are the people who are concerned with this
1:11 pm
and they know what's going on because they have seen this in the region you know nothing is expected absolutely no results on the ground in sudan are expected from the decisions of the security council or any other regional powers or world powers they know that decisions might be taken they know that resolutions might be issued they know that condemnations will be announced but that will be it you're asking they say they have no hope they're not putting any hope on those regional powers because they know that without a green light from the white house for the american side saudi arabia and the united are. wouldn't have gone on that road you know like we saw in sudan now it's very clear that after the visit to saudi arabia by he came back with very different agenda he was negotiating with with the freedom of. forces of change the evolution of these he stopped that negotiation he was talking about 3 or 4 years transition now he is not talking about that anymore so he came back with the agenda
1:12 pm
and people are saying that without a green light from the superpowers particularly the united states now you wouldn't have the military council wouldn't have taken those decisions and those decisions came from you know with the. rubber stamp from saudi arabia and the highest r.m.s. thank you very much for joining us here on a new. our with the latest on the developments in sudan as turn our attention to other world news now and the syrian government's on i russia has broncs the un security council from issuing a statement on attacks in italy province the member states were expected to sound alarm over the possibility of a humanitarian disaster because of increasing attacks by the government on rebel controlled areas on monday at least 3 people were killed in the town of moreton gnomon government forces launch an offensive to recapture it in april despite a cease fire deal that both the syrian government and russia have been accused of systematically targeting hospitals doctors a force evacuee patients and many international aid agencies have pulled out
1:13 pm
because of security concerns al-jazeera has got rare access to adelaide from wesson and. has this report. even though located in a cave hospitals are not safe in this part of syria anymore as the regime and its allies continue to target them. who are so low was injured in. almost a month ago with over the horizon she and her brother went back home to pick up some stuff during what they believed was a cease fire. is the. well of. my brother as a martyr what was our guilt mine about or what may god punish assad his people and russia and the him taste the same pain. syrian and just say at these 26 medical facilities have been hit since the syrian regime intensified its attacks in at there on april 26th at least 300 people have been killed whole of the
1:14 pm
fear now i'm at a hospital but i wish they took me out the hospitals are now targets many would prefer to suffer and die at home to dying in a hospital now. despite this hospital being hidden underground a bomb blended 200 meters away a few days ago. to prevent civilian casualties the hospitals inside did live made a decision to evacuate patients except for the emergency cases. this doctor says' even this children's hospital couldn't escape the regime's shelling despite coordinates being shared with the un. well. during the airstrikes my wife and daughters were also at the hospital but i had to keep them here to be able to evacuate the others the hospital was full it was tough to decide and keep the crew safe at the same time we have only 2 options either stay or die following the syrian regime's latest airstrikes targeting the health facilities in medical workers think they are being deliberately targeted aid
1:15 pm
organizations are scared to send crews into syria leading to a shortage in medical supplies people say here it is much easier to find weapons than finding medicine. people in a blip say they have lost hope that the world will do anything to stop the onslaught. of the 7 years the international community has provided nothing not the un not the others it's all empty promises it is one of the escalation zones agreed by turkey russia and iran but equipment has been constant to violated by the syrian government and russia now 3000000 people in it live for you the up so you can violence over recent weeks is only going to get worse. al-jazeera in the northwest and syria probably like you cannot live to london where u.s. president donald trump has arrived in downing street to meet the british prime
1:16 pm
minister the outgoing british prime minister to may. he held talks with business leaders on day 2 of his 3 day state visit to the u.k. the focus of the meeting with theresa may is expected to largely be on trade the trade deal after breck's it kind of change and the chinese tech company while we are also expected to be discussed again live pictures there from london where donald trump has just gone into a meeting with theresa may not at all and john tie demonstrations are planned in london today as well as in several other british cities leaders of britain may not be. labor party and other politicians are expected to join those demonstrations. we will be speaking to our reporters in london in just a few minutes for more on what's planned on day 2 of trump's visit now tens of thousands of people are gathering in hong kong and rallies planned elsewhere in the world to mark 30 years since the tenement square massacre in beijing but in the
1:17 pm
chinese capital it's not being mentioned and a security clampdown is in place tanks rolled in and soldiers opened fire to end a long standoff with pro-democracy protests this city has to go and i speak to adrian brown in beijing for is so adrian 30 is on there has still been no public reckoning by china's government about what happened 30 years ago why. yes indeed fully 30 years ago beijing was under sullen gray skies it has been again today this is the 30th anniversary of the suppression of the pro democracy movement but this is still an incident that china's government doesn't want to talk about there's been no public reckoning as you say and the reason for that is that it raises questions over the legitimacy of the ruling communist party in other words the chinese communist party still believes that the army were correct in the
1:18 pm
actions they took because if they hadn't have gone into the square to clear it they could have been civil war and china never would have gone on to become the economic superpower that it is today so one word really sums up their attitude it is on repentant but some world leaders have been commenting today mike pompei of the u.s. secretary of state has said in a statement was issued on the eve of this anniversary that the united states has essentially given up with china when it comes to human rights and he demanded that china and its silence over what happened to come clean on how many people were killed and how many people were arrested well i've been speaking to one of the leaders of that protest movement work i she who now lives in exile in taiwan and he's been reflecting 30 years on whether it was all worth it. in the spring of 1989 student leader work i she was in the thick of it confronting authority on the streets arguing with china's leaders in the great hall of the
1:19 pm
people dressed in hospital but the hunger striking workers she had been rated the prime minister lee passage when students began occupying tiananmen square they were demanding more accountability in government and tougher measures against corruption they were joined by doctors teachers judges and journalists from state media the growing movement posing the greatest threat to 40 years of communist rule. work-i she says he never thought it would end the way that it did with the people's liberation army firing on the people. expect that some blood shed. be hit by the police but. that's what we have expected life. today he lives in exile in taiwan the self-governing island republic the china wants back and he's had
1:20 pm
a lot of time to reflect on whether it was all worth it i think politically or legally. rationally speaking. but. what if there's this one person shot and dead. because he heard a speech that given. the army quickly regained control of the streets but no one was quite sure who was really in charge as i reported from beijing at the time meanwhile the men who control the army and perhaps now the government have issued another ominous warning stay off the streets or face the consequences one man certainly didn't seem to care about the consequences. yesterday in an extraordinary single act of defiance this young unarmed protester brought a column of tanks to a standstill we still don't know his name or if he survived after he was bundled
1:21 pm
away unclear by whom june the 4th is just another day in china they'll be no public displays of dissent or remembrance china's vast security and surveillance network will see to that even mothers of students killed in the bloodshed have been told to remain silent as part of the continuing official cover up the chinese leadership still refuses to acknowledge how many people were killed or to express remorse. herein is it possible that because of all the censorship that many chinese people still don't know what place. well you know i have chinese friends who say they have told their children about what happened and i've got other chinese friends who say that they have and i think what we have to remember foley is that at one stage there were more than a 1000000 protesters in china one square one of the biggest public squares in the
1:22 pm
world and that these students had been cheered on by hundreds of thousands of people and also remember there were protests in other cities here in china so many of those people of course are still alive and of course they will not have forgotten about what happened i think it's too easy to say that there's a sort of collective nisa in china about this event i think there are plenty of people who do remember what happened they just don't want to talk about it in public meanwhile the censorship here has been in overdrive today censorship that of course is now supported by algorithms an artificial intelligence and i have to say that largely that censorship has been very effective today thank you for that adrian brown live for us sane beijing meanwhile taiwan's president says china should use the tannin then anniversary as an opportunity to corrected spats mistakes. we hope china which is currently in the process of becoming
1:23 pm
a powerful nation can become a more convincing a country within the international community and can welcome different opinions and the development of a pluralistic society so i also hope the china or the or thora g.'s in beijing can adopt an attitude of self reflection and progress regarding the june 4th geonim and crackdown and as i mentioned in hong kong a large candlelight vigil is expected in the coming hours but some student unions are boycotting the event exposing a rift between younger and veteran democracy activist sarkar is in hong kong with more. 30 years on kenneth lam recalls the events of june the 4th $989.00 like that happened yesterday he was a student leader and was in tiananmen square when he saw soldiers and tanks rolling in and hundreds of students were being shot at that moment. to 3 gunshots and i didn't realize at that moment.
1:24 pm
that got gunshots there was the 1st time i carry a person. going to die. photos and details of the massacre in beijing a shed in this hong kong museum dedicated to the tiananmen square crackdown the museum was forced to close 3 years ago but has reopened in time for the anniversary . vigil in hong kong is the only commemoration held on chinese soil remembering a chapter in history that china's latents prefer to forget but attendance has been on the decline since the occupy pro-democracy protests 5 years ago demonstrators demanded the communist leadership in beijing respect the $997.00 agreement which guaranteed freedoms after the handover from british colonial rule since those protests are rising and he mainland and pro hong kong sentiment has split the pro-democracy camp student unions are now boycotting the vigil we are not going to
1:25 pm
out there cananites in pretoria pocket yet the most important reason behind is that we do not agree with that the wedding of people practical enough at the heart of the student boycott is a growing conviction that this special administrative region is separate to the mainland and attending a vigil is acceptance that hong kong is part of china student unions are now holding their own alternative events with a different agenda focusing on the political issues closer to home that's disappointed the veteran democratic activists and those pro-democracy groups who support the vigil they argue it's an occasion for everyone to reflect on hong kong's future i really hope we show that we don't forget and we're still striving for democracy no matter even hong kong and we also support. the point of china striving for changes despite this widening rift between the older and younger generations they still share a common goal greater democracy in the face of what they say is china's ever
1:26 pm

1:30 pm
a number of injured protesters are being treated. people around the world are marking 30 years and many square massacre in china more than $100000.00 people are expected at a vigil in hong kong but no such event will take place on the chinese mainland as beijing continues its censorship and donald trump has arrived in downing street for talks with the british prime minister theresa may the 2 leaders are expected to talk about future trade deals after breakfast chinese tech company huawei is also likely to be discuss now launch demonstrations are expected in london as well as several other british cities against the u.s. president's visit old brennan is at one of them in london in trafalgar square the main protests actually in one. and today paul not a very popular president in the u.k. tell us about what's going to be happening where you are and the mood among the protests. well he certainly has his opponents that's for sure i mean president

1:32 pm
people were dressed up as chicken soup protest against the prospect and it is alleged that chlorinated chicken from america could be brought into the u.k. so the sentiments here is not angry certainly the organizers said they want a carnival atmosphere but there is no mistaking the opposition to the president on his policies and meanwhile back in downing street president. holding talks what can we expect we need to come out of the talks between an outgoing prime minister and a president who is seeking another time in office. yes it's a difficult want to interest may has already announced on friday she will formally step down as the conservative party leader triggering the race to succeed in june. course the next prime minister so effectively she has no power anymore it's interesting or what they do but there is of course continuity and certainly the governments of the u.k.
1:33 pm
redoubts through the prime minister house to house dealings with the united states so that we talk about our rights to things including for example iraq. britain is one of those countries but you still supportive all the iran nuclear deal despite the fact that america is unilaterally without all that there are concerns about food standards and the prospect of course if it does eventually go through that there will need to be trade deals with the united states so there busy will be in line with groundwork the background of their situation as well but you're right to say that to resume a really is at the limits of tenure in downing street so although it's billed as political there's really not much that you can do in a real sense thank you for that kolbein and life force in london china meanwhile has warned its citizens against traveling to and working in the u.s. companies run the risk of being harassed by american law enforcement officials it also warns tourists risk of being robbed or shot on monday beijing also issued
1:34 pm
a warning to students who want to study in the u.s. both countries have been locked in a trade war since last year. and the us congress has begun an investigation to see if big tech companies stifling competition the house representatives judiciary committee says a handful of companies have come to dominate digital platforms and now have extraordinary power no firms were mentioned by name but the justice department is preparing to examine the influence of apple amazon facebook and google spanning company out of it well it speaks more about this to cohen who's a lawyer specializing in internet law and social media is also the author of the net is closing birth of the police thank you so much for being with us on al-jazeera why is the u.s. government pushing this anti-trust investigation against big tech companies what is it hoping to achieve. it is a double concerned that there is an economic concern and there is
1:35 pm
a political concern of course in terms of the economy concern be it if you think google for example google controls 95 percent of the digital of the search engine. activities so it has good a highly dominant position in through does dominant position google is able to promote all its other services to say for example you want to book a flight you go on google search you the fly details and the 1st thing that shows up is google on flight search which means google will take a cut of it at the expense of perhaps smaller travel agent smaller developers who might be hoping to develop similar products that traditionally. doing it positions prevent competition create higher prices but that leads us to the political aspect of it because what members of house of representatives are concerned about is they
1:36 pm
did dominant position of google facebook twitter might allow them to go in brain wash people and the concern about of course the previous presidential election where there are many still in the u.s. who believe that. the elections been won by donald trump due to unfair influence that people had been subjected to know via internet and social media or so how big of a headache it is going to be for the tech company that this move by congress made them now more vulnerable to losses. we we talked he we're talking about investigations that are likely to last for 5 to 7 years and the investigation the matters eventually will get settled but the in terms of the big. quarry there were easy they did these all thing is about the regulations that the u.s.
1:37 pm
government wants to be able to take control over the internet be able to regulate internet activities via regulations of internet companies now regulating internet means less control of for internet companies more taxes more of corporations more influence by government the government effectively wants to get into the internet they want to start policing it and one way of doing this is is by placing a lot of pressure on into the companies through the economic route what about the consumers how do they benefit from such. consumers certainly benefit in any area. there is real competition so whenever the reason competition people are on the exposed to to certain type of news that on top of opinions certain types of products they they clearly don't benefit from they had
1:38 pm
they might they might feel that it is convenient to to read this type of news that we used to be reading you know be exposed to anything else so so. once competition becomes. very difficult to to control it means that prices are high there's no what the very good there is very little of that it will consumers so do it consumers will benefit is number one there are going to be some very hefty fines. likely to be which are going to compensate for the low taxes those companies are paying at the moment and 2nd it is likely that the those in the new companies will voluntarily start opening up the market for competition and thank you very much for talking to us there you're welcome thank you. iraq's government has offered to mediate between the u.s. any iran to reduce tension between its 2 biggest allies but many sunni iraqis say
