11:02 am
people rallied in barcelona calling for united spain and simmons reports. two days after the vote to break from spain and for anyone who wondered how strongly those opposed to the move feel then is the answer. they call for the jailing of karla's police drama and they describe themselves as the silent majority you couldn't find silence in the center of barcelona this sunday in sound square the seat of power for a regional government that's been sacked by the state it was tense and a small number of pro unionists pushed against barriers in front of the government . overall it was a peaceful protest though the crowds cheering the spanish national police helicopters that provoked anger when overflying procession demonstrations for those who say catalonia should stay in spain this day belongs to them
11:03 am
a sign for my age range of people here what's striking about it is the number of people who are actually demonstrating for the first time this is a family day out louisa column a and two of her daughters were reticent about. secrecy a spanish like you wouldn't normally do people would literally in the street be i watch out whatever i don't know like i wouldn't feel comfortable doing it because of that. to be quite. the kind of hates kind of people sometimes a mother says unionists on not extremists they are less people they are not right we are not fascist i'm never in the social splits it will be maybe two generations three generations. in a neighborhood nearby some of the session campaigners are working out their next moves and the move. isn't celebrating. this man says the movement is
11:04 am
losing momentum because the regional government is spending a weekend doing little while the madrid government makes all the moves and he isn't alone we have plenty of confidence in our president any of them on but it's very difficult vice president jim carrey us at this very difficult for us to understand seem very minor. most of the campaigners here say they're prepared to defend public buildings if the police try to arrest politicians with institutions all returning to work on monday their plans could soon be put to the test. and andrew symonds joins us now live from london andrew i think it's just gone nine am that let's start with the first question of who's showed up for work in some of those public administration government buildings. well that front door has seen no one go through it there are all rare entrances but one thing is for sure no
11:05 am
ministers are inside right now either from madrid or indeed from barcelona so the question is will the government that actually tried this a session here and declared it through parliamentary vote will that government attempt to try to get ministers in place because we understand their orders for the not to be allowed in this building and others we're also hearing from activists right across barcelona that they intend if necessary to god public buildings and stop the police from any attempted arrests but will there be arrests will simply be summonses issued to anyone who the prosecutor general wishes to charge of course. is on that list at the top of that list whether he faces a charge of sedition or possibly rebellion is unclear right now he spent the weekend
11:06 am
in jerome getting a lot of legal advice but appearing quite relaxed in television pictures of him going to arrest drawn and also a t.v. address which was much more serious when he called on every want to peacefully support the government which was going to find it very very hard in the coming days and months in its struggle now as far as madrid is concerned it's been pretty hyperactive over the weekend sacking people one hundred forty people mainly special advisers and people in in posts. foreign representative offices they've all had their contracts terminated they all civil servants however there are other civil servants who've been fired and two hundred thousand all up all going to work this morning under given what you said is madrid in full control of this point from what you can make out. well
11:07 am
it would appear so because obviously the the the government that secession is keeping. a very very low profile as i said the. colors push them all has not showed publicly in barcelona he stayed in jordan we don't know where he is right now he's posted to only within the last within the past hour a photograph or other obscure photograph on instagram showing the eaves of a building on the roof part of a roof very bizarre with a smiley icon and a good morning everyone but anything that's that's the latest communication from him there's been no word from any other ministers and we are we understand what one minister says he intends to show up for work but then we're not seeing anything happen right now is so hard to tell is the answer to that but to use it
11:08 am
a trip arrow who is the chief was the chief of the most police he's been fired he's been replaced now most certainly madrid is in control of the most force and they are also distributing. internal memos suggesting that they were all staying neutral and that would mean that if they're ordered to intervene and arrest anyone then they should do also the spanish police are up here with the guardian got us a deal also all in place should there be any any issues at all but there's a real tension about. this city understandably right now because people want to see what is going to happen they've been told that there will be elections in december but they're wondering really what of the earth is going to happen this monday has many of us are let's wait and see thanks so much under simmons' now the
11:09 am
seventh round of talks aimed at ending syria's six year war is getting underway in the catholic capital i stand the meeting is expected to call for a cease fire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months the clearance of mines prisoner swaps and the release of hostages are also on the agenda the talks are sponsored by iran and russia which support the syrian regime and turkey which backs the rebels imran khan has more from a stand. their standard talks have started and these are closed door talks between all of the major parties who's in attendance we have the syrian government the syrian opposition delegations from both of those we have the united nations and also the united states but mainly it's of the three guarantors of the deescalation zones and that's russia turkey and iran now there is some concern about these deescalation zones there has been clashes taking place within the mind of clashes say the syrian opposition but they say that civilians have been affected now russia
11:10 am
says that actually those who have been just operations against extremist groups that they call groups like. isis fighters and the civilians are affected now the talks are taking place right now seem to be of a technical nature which country does what role what the russia what do the russians do what the iranians do what do the turkish do now whilst all of this goes on we also have another round of tools taking place in november that's november twenty eighth in geneva with the u.n. and the interim syrian delegations now the russians are hoping that these peace talks these deescalation torso as well as the prisoner exchanges and everything else that's been discussed will dovetail into those talks or it seems to me it seems to many observers of the process here son of president bashar assad is in a very strong position now that's something that turkey is concerned about it's something that the russians have wanted for a while now to see him in
11:11 am
a strong position so they can bring about an end to the conflict we're also hearing from local russian media reports about the russian military role so it's likely that something is going to come out about their role about the size of their role within syria in the next twenty four hours now cut his emir is reiterating the importance of safeguarding his country's sovereignty but it also his commitment to dialogue to resolve the gulf diplomatic dispute shake to mean been handed anthony was speaking to. u.s. television show sixty minutes cutter has been under a blockade from most five months after saudi arabia the u.a.e. and egypt cut diplomatic and trade ties mike hanna reports from washington d.c. . there was no sign of friction among gulf leaders when they met president trump on his first foreign trip but was all smiles and a common pledge to combat terrorism in all its forms yet less than two weeks later the blockade against cutter was launched much to the surprise of carter's emir
11:12 am
shaikh bin. we were praising each other. laughing with each other this cussing you know how to solve this terrorism that is a threat for the rest of the world they're making demands of you that you shut down al-jazeera that you may give them your word that you're not supporting in islamic groups are you going to meet these demands our sovereignty is a red line we don't accept anybody interfering our sovereignty when you tell me to close a china like al-jazeera history were right one day in fifty or sixty seventy years how it changed the whole idea of free speech in the region do you believe that they want regime change yes they won they want a regime change that's just so obvious history as well tells us teaches us that they tried to do that before in one thousand ninety six after my father. became the emir of qatar has denied any support for terrorism. offered this explanation as to
11:13 am
why the taliban was allowed to open an office in doha the reason why they came here it's not because we asked them to come here because other people like the united states america united states wanted the taliban here they wanted to have dialogue so they asked us if we can host them here and have the dialogue so that we host of them here this is the reason why they're here how with this in and we want to turn and believe me charlie we want to turn. but nothing is going to be above our dignity our sovereignty but we want to turn and i almost say that if they go walk one meters toward me i'm willing to walk ten thousand miles towards them but it may be left to others to persuade those continuing the blockade to take that first step mike hanna al-jazeera washington. is an associate professor of middle east studies at the university of oklahoma he says the amazing interview shows there's
11:14 am
no softening of the country's position. i think that certainly the emir was speaking directly to the american people going well beyond the government and rex tillerson the secretary of state making the appeal to the american people that this is unjust and so on i think his claims about sovereignty which he made in an earlier and dress over the summer are not new i think what he did show determination and the and the claim that this was about regime change which we wish we all knew from the very beginning i think also is a toughening stance as it were all of us knew from the very beginning that the saudis and the emirates is behind these nutritions would have loved to bring about regime change and in fact there might have been a military possibility in the first couple of days and they also miscalculated thinking that the cuts are e people would somehow rebel against their government after the ending of formal relations and so on none of that happened so this was about regime change but see
11:15 am
here the emir say that it was a bit startling so i think this was a serious attempt to address the american people and also the kind of educated classes and so on and i think it's also important to point out that in addition to his determination and his top stance he did offer a leaf or a possibility as you mention with this claim but he said it's said twice in the interview that he's willing to go ten thousand miles if they are willing to come one meter so in addition to determination there was also a claim that we are that qatar is moderate and reasonable and willing to find a reasonable solution to this crisis. foreign minister is calling for kata to be frozen out of the regional bloc the gulf cooperation council have been ahmed al highly for has tweeted bahrain one to ten the upcoming g.c.c. summit unless cotham meets the demands of the blockading nations. still ahead on

every single one of the three thousand people who was killed was a drug dealer yes how do we know that you didn't try them you didn't prosecute them you didn't charge you shot them on sawing join mehdi has done for up front at this time on al jazeera. you're watching out to zero time to recap the headlines now spain's top prosecutor is expected to seek formal charges against those responsible for the vote that led to the catalonia declaring independence many have called for the arrest of sect leader powers. the seventh round of talks aimed at resolving syria's war has
11:19 am
begun in the kazak capital are stana the meeting is expected to call for a cease fire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months the clearance of landmines and prisoner swaps also high on the agenda cutters amir's says he was the result of the gulf diplomatic crisis as long as there has sovereignty is respected shake to mean but they spoke to the us television program sixty minutes cusser as we know under a blockade from most five months after saudi arabia u.a.e. behind and egypt cut diplomatic and try ties. state media is reporting that politician. and businessmen are meeting to discuss setting up an economic zone in a town in iraq and state the move comes after the me and claimed peace and stability had returned to the region at least six hundred thousand people from the
11:20 am
minority ring of community have fled iraq and since august after a military crackdown and are now in bangladesh the million man govern minister has told local media it's likely hundred fifty or him there will now be repatriated each day florence louis joins us live from yangon so first of all let's start with this talk of setting up an economic zone in an area that's been the focus of what the u.n. has been calling ethnic cleansing the violence and military operations how government officials saying that's going to work. well this was an idea that was mooted just some time after the violence of that started on august twenty fifth now and the businessmen local politicians entrepreneurs met in fits way that's the state capital of rakhine state to discuss setting up business opportunities in economic zone in hmong door and that's the area that's been hardest hit by the military crackdown which as you've said have led to six hundred
11:21 am
thousand people to flee into bangladesh in just two months alone this is the lead article in the state owned media global new light of myanmar it says on proponents to develop rakhine state now clearly the government is trying to push forward the narrative that normalcy and peace and stability have returned to that part of the states there's also an opinion piece in the newspaper stating that it's time now to implement these economic projects to help alleviate poverty there now and this is while recut activists say they're still receiving videos and reports sent in by people in the area of rakhine mobs not the military burning down houses so this clearly should call into question the government side of the of the story now it's extremely difficult to verify these reports that houses a still being burned because the government does not allow journalists and aid
11:22 am
workers access into the area apart from one escort it trips but this really should cause us to question the government narrative and analysts to have pointed out that economic development alone will not resolve the crisis when you've got a group of people who are stateless who are persecuted severely discriminated against. and all the other point is there a serious plan to take writing about resumes at the daily number they're talking about talking about it'll take something like eleven a years just to take the people who've left in the last six weeks never mind all the others that's right now the details of repair tradition is still being worked out between me and maher and bangladesh the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding last week where we patry ation of refugees was one of the ten points that were agreed under the deal but they still haven't worked out
11:23 am
the details now myanmar officials have said that the repatriation process very few cation will be along the lines of an earlier we pattern deal between myanmar and bangladesh where between the years of nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and five about two hundred thirty thousand were repatriated but as you've said even going by those numbers that me and our officials are now. throwing out one hundred fifty a day it will still take eleven years to repatriate the number of crossed over into bangladesh in the last two months and that's assuming they want to return to myanmar because the earlier deal had had gone the earlier deal ran into problems because there were allegations that the refugees were coerced into going back to myanmar rather than voluntarily putting up their hands to say they want to return to myanmar and then there's also the additional problem of who will actually qualify because men are officials have said that the repatriation deal should
11:24 am
follow an earlier deal and that was when people had to prove that they previously resided in myanmar but the myanmar military has come out to say that it should also include proof of citizenship and if that is the deal then really very many people want to be allowed to return to myanmar the third so much flow slowly there. now kenya's opposition leader has branded the presidential election rerun i shann he's calling for a new poll within three months by loading church leaders and supporters in the capital nairobi on sunday as the country remains in political limbo the poll was marred by violence and a low turnout of just forty three percent has more from nairobi. there's little doubt president two who headed for landslide win after thousands election was quoted by the opposition but is shrunken electron monday to to a water timeout continues to tarnish the credibility of
