pepper spray and there are reports of injuries and several arrests on kong has been rocked by more than a month of protests against the proposed extradition bill which critics say would allow mainland china to further erode hong kong's autonomy. are a journalist simon le plateau joins us now from hong kong for the latest there so simon the chief executive of hong kong kerry land has said that this proposed law is dead and yet these protests are continuing why are people still taking to the streets indeed that the question that had to and i pulled the whole protest today and what people say is that she said it's dead and she even used a chinese expression for it but she refused to use the word we drove and we still would have legal consequences where i was the belief that it means ok we cannot
8:03 pm
promise you that we're not going to pass it but it's still it's still there somehow some people don't trust the government of hong kong there is a deep distrust and because of that. and to officially we've drawn from the program of the late cold villager to let it consume it we can protest all right so is that their only protest for this bill to be officially withdrawn would that satisfy the demonstrators. no now after more than a month of protests the demands of protesters have become much whiter and so it starts with the withdrawing the bill apart from that now they also want investigation of the police violence it wants to people who have been arrested so far to be released they want the protest not to be labeled
8:04 pm
riots and even more and the last addition to this long list is they want popular election so you can see that it has had to do with a very controversial bill that apparently the government didn't she paid woods and are going to the people of hong kong so much but now the whole political system hong kong which she said yesterday. was also been hearing protesters calling for the resignation of carrie lamb is she likely to bow down to their demands well that's a very interesting question because so far if you clicked she was resisting. and to be at the financial times got a scoop of her and she that she offered beijing to resign i kissed a couple times since the beginning of these protest and the beijing authorities
8:05 pm
refused and said after and see that she was to go on because anyway no one else could do the job no one else want this job and she should clean up the mess that she started so she's not likely to resign all right so beijing according to this report is not allowing carolan to resign what is beijing's take on all of these ongoing protests in hong kong and could we see the mainland actually intervene. well we could say that mail and is intervening so far by supporting the government and calling the government for pot reaction but that sits no we've not going to see. any. well any police force from mainland all the army intervened because hong kong is hong kong this is an international. has the
8:06 pm
full finance for commerce so it's it's highly unlikely but it's. we can imagine that beijing is very and better rest and that has been chilled by the fact that for example until recently all the news about what was happening in hong kong was totally censored in the mainland i muted in beijing shanghai so indeed there was absolutely nothing and she will. doesn't face a guru when protesters stormed into the stone into villages if you can still find her head in the violence what shown in the media but that's it journalists sign on the plats not reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much fun. to france now where president a model micron has showcased europe's defense capabilities at this year's day parade the focus on european military cooperation on the french national day comes

8:08 pm
a further attempt to say that europe can very much stand on its own feet when it comes to defense and that it doesn't depend that much anymore on the u.s. but a common european defense strategy also means bringing together military doctrine that can differ greatly especially when it comes to germany and france which is much more intervention sevi than its nadir so it remains to be seen if the idea that has showcased here today will really become reality. well just a few hours after i'm out on my corner of you the bus still day parade several 100 yellow vests protesters gathered in the heart of the french capital some of them trying to occupy the shop setting say blocking the road with metal. barricades and debris police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds which then fled to adjacent streets to regroup prior to sunday's celebrations authorities had banned all
