so the lost loved ones. and does it up to the lower. 4 let's go back to one of our top stories we've been telling you about shots fired towards protesters in sudan's capital khartoum let's bring to bring in our shammy she's a sudanese human rights activist she's joining us via skype from washington and even though you're speaking to us from the united states i know you're in touch with people on the ground and so don what are they telling you about the protest movement right now and how fragile do you think it is at this point. what their spirits of the protests are it's kind of like you un at the moment sometimes the fear like they were strong they had this was a boost to gather and during the strike and it's not that they're united in the they can do whatever the demand and the can have control over the process but apparently the way the government is responding and its tactics when it comes to
the negotiations and if you a lot of people grow worry and skeptical if this is going to end as they expected it to the on a happy note let us note the use of aggression against protests there's this is not new this is has always been that peace with the regime and i personally think that is an extension of her this year and this is the only language they understand it's bullets and siring at civilians and the recent clashes that they had was with some of the younger young testers around the city then claiming that they were drunk or smoking or something like that but again that is not just by killing civilians who are unarmed protesters seem to be saying some of them at least they are worried that regional countries may be meddling in sudan's internal affairs are they right . it's not maybe it's certain if we look at the visits that the head of the
military council and has to be recently then immediately look east at the 1st visit 100 watts for egypt and then immediately went to let you apparently he's being a messenger now of going back and forth convey messages and also had many the 1st thing he did he went to americans and now 100 is in saudi it's very obvious and then early on at least 2 weeks ago or less that's not really any great lead to positive $500000000.00 this is too early to deposit for the military council when there is still no no look no government in place international community entering they're not going to have any economics for it until there is a civilian government in place but obviously it's not really any way this is not there to learn to eat and that is the sticking point right the civilian government to be put in place between the military council so well as these protesters but
speaking of the protesters as we know that women have really been at the forefront of that protest movement that we've seen and so don but very few have actually been involved in the negotiating process why's that. i think it's just one of those. situations where people don't talk the talk and then don't walk the walk and quite disappointed that forces for freedom and she just do not read it practice what they were reaching women it's not for the lack of leadership about women not because there are no women who consider the table and negotiate or don't have the experience there are but they had been systematically walked out of it's very heavily dominated by men and when it comes to the presentation they house 2 or 3 there and here and they think this is enough women did not see and he was really also present in their negotiation about the rule of women giving them a coat elsewhere to present what does not need
a women are in the streets that once they're taking the bullets as men are taking it they are like guarding this it in their providing they're doing their share of the revolution and they should not be limited with that number and they should be if they are at their level if they are in leadership they should be at the table you cannot put a couch one talent and this is the problem and i'm not sure that everybody who is at that negotiating table presenting at it is actually the best of the crowd so i and i think this is a battle that we're going to continue to fight for it to have women because apparently it's always been the case and the middle east the women are part of the revolution and part of that state building of the new nation and the minute dinners power sharing they're completely pushed aside and allison want to highlight something that it's not only about women any other minorities are not military. that is negotiating i was not there and i said that they are supplied i'm not sure
there is any coptic or any christian among them they're great but the decision making is reproducing what we're we're voting against is this centralization of identity. and this. i am by. men only an assistant i mean we thank you for point taken we thank you very much for joining us and speaking to us from washington and she has plenty more ahead on the al-jazeera news hour including the u.n. finds itself unable to help syrians caught up in bombing raids in the northwest trouble in the air why selling off satellite band with could leave weather forecaster is in the dark and in sport when the new zealand put on a show against sri lanka at the cricket world cup. but 1st forces loyal to libya's u.n.
recognized government say they've pushed toward $24.00 have to its fighters south of the capital near the disused international airports they say they've also bombed tough sort of positions in the south of these 3 fighters were killed during the operation or humanitarian colleagues tell us that the number of people who have fled their homes due to the fighting in libya's capital tripoli surpassed 90000 according to the u.n. migration agency this week alone saw 8000 people half of them believed to be children displaced aid workers continue to provide assistance to the internally displaced and other vulnerable people impacted by the ongoing hostilities with more than 47000 people in tripoli and surrounding areas having received help to date. more from tripoli. clashes started on saturday between forces loyal to the government of national accord and others led by the warlord khalifa haftar in the vicinity of the old international active airport on the southern west in the part
of the libyan capital the government forces say that the are determined to be captured at the airport because it has been this supporting hub for have forces in for the main axes north of the airport in its windy and 3 good axes and east of the airport in a little for the journey and sat up ends are axes of the government forces say that the captured at the airport they can then cut the supporting line going for have those forces from the airport to those 4 main axes the also say that they can easily take control of the airport and look at they have to his forces locations in the vicinity of the airport they can also open the way towards area would have to his forces are located there the situation remains very tense on the southern outskirts of the libyan capital specially for civilians many people have been killed since the fighting started on april 4th including civilians and also
including women and children police in the u.s. state of virginia have identified the gunman and his victims in friday's mass shooting duane craddock an engineer who had worked for the city of virginia beach for 15 years shot and killed 12 his coworkers the suspect died after a long gun battle with police it's the worst incident of mass shooting in the u.s. so far this year. once you enter an environment such as this everything changes things change in a moment's notice such as. the gun battle with the suspect so we did train as recent as march 30th but officers had to make instantaneous decisions at that moment in time on how to gauge the suspect they did it. miraculously because you're right they did save other lives. joining us from virginia beach where that shooting took place so what are you hearing from there heidi. well during the
big question now is what motivated this gunman to come in and commit this atrocity we do know according to police that cradock had no criminal history that as you said he's been working at this city building behind me for the last 15 years but that he entered the building yesterday with his employee badge that gave him full access to all 3 floors of this building and he opened fire on his colleagues killing 11 coworkers and one other person who was here for city business police say that credit was armed with a 45 caliber handgun the had a silencer and magazine extenders and it is notable that these same extenders were a legal in the united states until 2004 which white now it is legal to use them and this is generated quite a bit of outrage among democrats who say that it is simply unacceptable for these laws to be so permissive and are saying that this is finally the time after so many
mass shootings that are only accelerating in their pace for some sort of gun reform to happen in washington and what about the community of their people that you've been speaking to are they talking about gun reform or and things that need to change. today they're talking about those 12 people who are dead their names and a little bit about their backgrounds are shared at prescott. earlier in the day and there are multiple vigils scheduled to honor their memory i did speak with one gentleman who came and laid some flowers here at the scene for those who have perished and he is interesting only he brought up you know is the community here even in the day after a tragedy like this happened there quite divided when it comes to how to resolve this and prevent more things like this happening in the future he supports gun rights as do many americans and the reality now in congress is that republicans
control the senate and have been refusing to take up legislation that was passed in the house i would have bipartisan support to rein in some of these background check issues with purchasing firearms in the united states and because there are still appears to be a lack of political will to really take on that legislation. honestly what we're seeing here is just that tie and time again at least every other month a headline like this dominates american news americans who watch it say it's just more of the same. thank you. a reporter into murdered in missing indigenous women and girls in canada has described them as victims of a genocide the report leaked to the media contains the findings a phenomenal inquiry into the deaths and disappearances of 1200 aboriginal women since 1980 activists argue that number is much higher closer to 4000 their report
blames state inaction and deep rooted colonialism for the disproportionate violence faced by indigenous women they make up 4 percent of canada's population but account for 16 to 24 percent of homicide victims more than 2000 witnesses persis a painted in the inquiry including survivors and relatives of missing woman but speak to she's an indigenous activist and former advisor to the minister of crown indigenous relations she's joining us via skype from ottawa thanks for being with us on al-jazeera your initial reaction to the findings of the leaked reports. things that. i guess my initial reactions are this crisis is nothing new to indigenous peoples we've been experiencing these problems and. the loss of. sisters played
a while a lot of this is. you look at the history of canada. that they can start even at the 1st contact with europeans and ideologies that were . that the report does say state actions and inactions rooted in colonialism and colonial ideologies were a key driving force in the disappearance of thousands of indigenous women. and it's generally the reality. there's a lot of this. let me. take you straight to. the every day that i think that i was country when i was created and so a lot of the land was destroyed as well as stall and from indigenous people and that's a correlation that. the destruction of our women as follows the loss of her and
what are you hoping this report will make she because the report does contain 230 recommendations to talk of violence faced by indigenous communities and those recommendations will be released once the actual report is released but what do you think report will achieve. by misleading at this point. i think many of us have lost a lot of sleep and all that things are going to change because of these types of words over the last couple years we've seen many reports and recommendations come through and we're not that many are not so i think a lot of us are really. really trust you know people in the grassroots are. all right gabrielle faile we'll leave it there we thank you for speaking to us from ottawa still ahead on the al-jazeera news hour. palestinian students in the occupied west bank learned to cope with the danger of

hello again the top stories on the al-jazeera news our shots have been fired towards protesters in sudan's capital hard to make the military isn't trying to stop protestors setting up barricades outside its headquarters forces loyal to libya's u.n. recognized government say they 1st warlords $24.00 have to use fighters self of the capital at least 3 fighters were killed during the operation and mexico's foreign minister is in washington for talks over president donald trump plants attacks all mexican goods trump wants mexico to stop the flow of migrants or face a 5 percent tariff which could climb to 25 per cent let's explore this further with mark weisbrot he's a co-director of the center for economic and policy research is joining us from
washington thanks very much for speaking to us so as you're saying the u.s. is asking mexico for substantial progress when it comes to the issue of stemming the flow of refugees off migrants to these projected tariffs or the threats of tariffs help of the immigration policy marc marc wise brought are you with us. yes good to have us on al-jazeera i'll just ask you my question again the u.s. is asking and trump that is asking for progress from mexico in stemming the flow of migrants he's now threatening terrorists does this policy of tariffs help with the immigration policy well the thing you have to remember about trump is that he's all about distraction he ran his presidential campaign that way and he
continued into his presidency and trade is the perfect described distraction because you know there's 190 countries in the world and we have trade with the overwhelming majority of them and so this is the main purpose when he attacks mexico he's also trying to appeal to an anti immigrant in bases a significant part of his base it's appealing to racist fears and animosities so that's most of it i don't think that there's anything you know he's actually trying to accomplish economically this is clearly a negotiating tactic though is that not so doesn't pressure of these countries at all. i don't know i mean you know 1st of all we have to look at what's the root cause of the immigration that you do have and that's the policies
that a lot of it is what the united states has done sort of or example you know a lot of moderates from douras well there was a coup there in 2009 that was aided and abetted and supported by the u.s. government hillary couldn't even wrote in her memoirs that she worked to prevent a democratically elected president from going back to the country and that place has been a terrible mess and that's a lot of the migration you go through all that and mexico itself of course has been a terrible failure since nafta millions of people lost their livelihood in agriculture because of the you know elimination of tariffs in mexico on corn and the poverty is worse than it was before nafta so these are the kind of things that really would have have changed the countries where the moderates are coming from and even the ones who come from central america mexico they would be stay there if mexico had just continued to grow at the rate that they grew before the united states became heavily involved in determining economic policy in the 1980 s.
and ninety's but let me ask you about the other countries i mean clearly mexico just happening a few hours ago but we also didn't see trying to impose tariffs on china as you know he also is ending the preferential trade deal with india so how much pressure do these tactics by trump put on these countries. i don't think they buy very much at all look at china for example what is he trying to do there well you know that's again a lot of that is distraction but some of that he's actually trying to accomplish something for the big pharmaceutical companies in terms of making their patents stronger and longer so they can make more money he's also trying to make it easier for u.s. companies to outsource there by saying that demanding that china does not put any conditions on foreign investment in china for example sharing of technology and
so those things are you know they're going against what he's promised his his base again it's all electoral because he was he was saying he was going to help. create jobs in the united states but what is he going to get and you know he's attacking huawei the big 2nd biggest cell phone company in the world cutting them off from u.s. markets and technology will there you know china will just shift and death you know in 2009 we had a deep world recession including the great recession united states china just adapted and plowed right through that with the highest growth in the world something around 8 or 9 percent and so they have control over there a lot of control still over investment over the financial system so they will adapt to whatever the united states does and you'll just see more integration between china and europe for example european countries are not going along with the
u.s. attempts to cut off while way right ok market wise right we thank you very much for speaking to us from washington. it's now if we take a closer look at the escalating trade war between the us 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 it deems unreliable that's seen as a response to u.s. attempts to block the global expansion of chinese telecom giants why wait and china is threatening to restrict exports of rare earth minerals that many companies in the u.s. depend on in our tangan is a china analyst and economist he says china is responding carefully in order to avoid hurting their own people. for china they see this is 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 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 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 to 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. well trade isn't the only area where the u.s. and china are at odds washington's also taking aim at beijing's foreign policy speaking at a security forum in singapore acting u.s. defense secretary patrick shanahan warned china to stop threatening its neighbors saw francies china has denied the allegations and blames american naval activities in the south china sea and washington support for taiwan for any instability china
should have a cooperation with the rest of the region to. behavior to grow together to start and so distressed the chinese tensions must. the syrian government and its ally russia have bombed several rebel controlled areas in the country's northwest airstrikes have hit the city of in the western aleppo countryside and several towns and how my province activists say they have also been bombing south. opposition fighters have been pushed back to be area you can see here on the map hundreds of people have been killed since last month the u.n. says this includes more than $130.00 children the world food program says more than 300000 people have been displaced by the fighting camps are overcrowded and supplies are running short the u.n. has warned the fighting is putting humanitarian operations at risk we are witnessing a catastrophic on fooling it lives are being lost people must flee conflict there
on the mall that displaced civilian infrastructure is being destroyed and now we also see farmland being destroyed which will have an impact on food security beyond repair 300000 people have been displaced mostly moving from the south live at the north of how much will the northern camps and all the program has been able to reach 190000 people with emergency systems which is food that can that is can't and people can't eat on them. the situation is and it has to stop this is a very densely populated area and and the camps are fooled are the people who received tents from humanitarian partners but they have nowhere to pitch. you know one man told us that our partners that he has been under move and he had to carry
his aging and wounded mother for hours on his back until he found a vehicle to take them or another woman is standing is that you know in a blink of an eye she has lost everything and her children are traumatized you know from the bombs and the shelling fall through from the sky sort of people are moving north to woods to safety to which these camps but they don't find a place to look to to really settle. even if temporary but that while the program is able to reach to where it would the lives. millions of muslims across the world are looking forward to celebrating their i need festival next week and for some syrian refugees living in turkey of the holiday will be extra special this year jonjo reagan has more. heading home for aid for the 1st time in more than 80 years these syrian refugees who have been living in turkey arrive at syria's bab

people here say this happens regularly israeli settlers are still in stones at the school they shot this video and. some students threw rocks back but with this is a settlers are often armed and have these really are this protection this includes life and we created a added he tells us an israeli settler shot him from a short distance a few months ago the damage to his arm could be permanent. saw we were in class when the settlers started throwing rocks and fire bombs the students started to. friending themselves as we were leaving the school some of the settlers were armed with weapons and sharp tools i was walking when to settle a shot at me with a life bullet that went into my arm such attacks have forced some students to study in other villages or drop out of school. miss with the. i was shocked by the declining number of students attending the school some parents say instead of
losing their children to these attacks they protect them from harm and send them to the labor market and said to make money. students you know what if it did at least 14 times since the beginning of the school year their legal settlements are so close it means that this school is exposed to regular attacks yet this is not the only risk palestinian students have to face children's rights organizations say students are being traumatized by school demolitions checkpoints and harassment this video shows 9 year old isn't it is being detained during a lesson this is really army told the children threw stones at israeli vehicles and have the west bank and it says it has no choice but to enter the gate and address children believes may be involved in violence but you are an organization say attacks on schools by settlers are increasing sometimes backed by israeli forces the military law as a whole is a system of control rather than a system of justice and this is what they want they want to control they do.
