4:30 pm
one day before mohammed morsi is due to go on trial. he is accused of inciting the murder of protesters in december of 2012. dominic cain has more on that trial >> reporter: it was a moment that seemed to suggest egypt's transition from dictatorship to democracy. the inauguration of a first freely elected president, both in a traditional government setting and then more emotionally in tahrir square, the recruicrucible. he is in detension, facing charges of insighting others to commit murder. on monday morning, he is due to be brought to a courtroom in the cairo police academy for his trial to begin. it is the court in which hosni mubarak is being tried. the prosecution case against morsi relates to violence between his supporters and opponents last december outside
4:31 pm
the presidential palace. according to human rights groups, protesters staging a sit-in against the president's sweeping new powers were attacked by pro-morsi supporters. several people were killed and many more injured. morsi, himself, has indicated he doesn't recognize the court's right to prosecution him and that he will not appoint a legal team. one lawyer who will be in court to observe morsi has told al jazeera the charges are baseless. >> there is no evidence that dr. morsi has committed any crime. trials of a political nature in the atmosphere after coup usually -- i hope i am wrong -- they are never knew tral, transparent or fair >> reporter: security around the torah prison and court house has been stead up in recent days. a control room will monitor the area. 20 members of the security forces will be on the streets
4:32 pm
with metal detectors to prevent protesters disrupting the trial. the anti-coup alliance has called on supporters to stage mass demonstrations in protests. on the streets of the capitol, opinion is divided before the trial. transtrans i believe it's a good thing because morsi was as bad in one year as what happened in the past 30 years. he should be tried. he did not fulfill his promises and during his time, there was no security. >> i believe this trial may lead to another wave of wretch lucien and people will start taking to the streets again. >> mohammed morsi's family has been able to speak to him only once since he was detained. they will not be in court on monday since, like him, they reject the court's right to try him. dominic cain, al jazeera, cairo. all right. to discuss all of this, we are joined by ashaf hagazi, a senior
4:33 pm
associate at the harvard international negotiation program. thank you for being with us today. >> thank you, jonathan. >> so kerry had some interesting comments in egypt. he said one thing that it appears egypt is moving toward democracy. do you degree with him? >> the road map put in place by thetritional government does lead to a democratically elected new government that's expected to happen over the next several months. so, as we move along the roadmap, we are headed toward democracies, at least electoral democracy. what happens in terms of who is doing the governance in the country and making policy decisions, i think for now, we don't know how that will develop. >> how can you say the country is moving toward democracy when we have scene hundreds much protest orders killed, basic rights that a lot of americans take for granted like freedom of
4:34 pm
the press are not allowed in egypt? >> and that's been a cause for a lot of concern. i think both in the u.s. and on the streets in egypt. but the popular sentiment in egypt is very much pro-military right now. people feel still that the muslim brotherhood and their supporters have hijacked the revolution, the 2011 revolution and were exclusionary in their governance and resorted to violence. so people have been supportive of the crackdown. most are waiting for the military crack down. the interim gom are caught between a rock and a hard place because even if they wanted to institute more open democracy, they are being pressured to crack down harder and harder on demonstrate. the egyptians may be favor but is it appropriate for the united
4:35 pm
states to be outwardly supporting the military? >> i think the united states has very few options right now. they don't have much leverage with the ruling government. they don't have much with the military. the u.s. military aid has been put on hold. i think the has suffered between military leaders there and military and political leaders in the united states. so the u.s. has to interact with the -- whichever government is in pour in egypt. right now, that's the military government. i think bind closed doors', they are trying to pressure the government to continue along this roadmap and actually establish a democratically elected government over the next six months. but publically, there is little they can do to influence aid on the ground. >> we have talked about the aid that the united states sends to egypt.
4:36 pm
the united states has held fighter jet shrimps. secretary said the military aid being held back is not a punishment. do you agree with that? >> figure out what muddies the waters and i think the obama administration recognizes now that with holding the aid may not have been the best policy decision. it really doesn't affect -- it doesn't pressure the government there very much because they are getting a lot of financial sport from the arab countries in the gulf long-term, this removes one of the key leverage points the u.s. has. so since secretary kerry is using the language of diploacy to commend the relationship a little bit with the military rulers there, in egypt, but ultimately, i think it's a failure of policy to do
4:37 pm
something like with holding the aid which is clearly meant as a reaction to the ouster of morsi and say this is not punt. what's the purpose of with holding that? all of those questions are left hanging after his comment today. >> it is complicated ground and, in fact, morsi's trowel begins tomorrow. thank you for your time today. >> my pleasure. thank you for having me. >> more allegations against the nsa. this time, it involves spying on u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon. the new york sometimes says the intell sequence agency intercepted talking points from moon prior to his april visit with president obama. the disclosure was considered a operational highlight in a weekly top secret report. the white house has not commented on that article. there are reports the administration ordered an end to the surveillance of the organization. >> until cuba, new generation is asking for change in the

4:39 pm
it was in the 1990s the government authorized the first rap festival. >> this is where it was born, a housing project in havana. even though rap is not the most popular. music in cuba, young people tell us that they turn to it to express the frustrations of their daily lives. >> al graphic designer that sings for change. he is a government employee, an example that will authorities are more open to criticism when it comes with music. >> hip hom is a culture of protest that is difficult to develop here for obvious reasons. en though there is a government agency and we get a little help from them. i have to do everything myself. the big problem we face is the lack of information. there is almost no internet, for example, and that is a big problem for young people. >> in spite of the criticism in the lyrics, rap is hardly a
4:40 pm
threat to the government. mainly because it lacks promotion. if he is trying to go change that. in cuba, everything is difficult. there are obstacles all the time. we built thistu studio with a l of effort. i am working so rappers can get more promotion and rap can be heard all around the island. >> piece? what people would like to see so young people here can use ram to get their message out. havan a. in india, celebrations for devali real underway during the festival of lights. they set off fire crackers. this year, foreign goods are making the festival a little less authentic. jamil tells us why.

4:42 pm
flavors. cup cakes, cookies and chocolates made from european and american recipes have become more popular each year thanks to a growing middle class with a taste for international treats. but people maintain some old traditions. markets like this one selling hand-made decorations are busy because for some people, if it's not indian, it's not devali? >> if you are getting something made right in front of you, right here, i want to buy -- why would you want to buy something that's from china? >> devali celebrates the victory of good over evil while for some, foreign made products may take away from tradition. for others, it's still the festival of lights no matter how it's lit or how it sounds. fez jamil, al jazeera, new delhi. >> sports is next. can the kansas city chiefs stay
