6:08 am
my protesters said the change in the law would mean critics of china could be extradited from hong kong to face summary justice in mainland courts the hong kong government has suspended the bill but protesters are still demanding its complete withdrawal on the our freedom our i'm also fighting just to deliver a message there's no no absolutely no support for the government it's also the 1st time the protesters have taken their campaign to the kalou district of home. and i with its luxury stores the area is a favorite desk. nation for mainland chinese shoppers and many seemed bewildered by the crowds of demonstrators who goes ok hong kong is the only chinese city that permits demonstrations like this. the old denies is said they wanted to tell the visitors about their struggle i don't really understand it said this visitor so i
6:09 am
don't want to comment because i think they're very brave said this woman. the destination for the march was the terminus for the high speed rail link connecting hong kong to the mainland seen by many as a symbol of china's encroaching influence initially the organizers had been hoping for a couple of 1000 people to take part in this march but even before it began it was clear that numbers would be far greater than that also very obvious by this demonstration that they anger and the spirits of resistance is still a strong people thought t.s.p. as of possible clashes with mainland tourists proved unfounded and many of the protesters seem to direct their anger at the police who are not who they accuse of using excessive force in breaking down largely peaceful protests. as darkness fell a breakaway demonstration blocks streets around cowley. sparking angry standoffs
6:10 am
with both police and local was. an ill tempered end to another day of anger on the streets of hong kong with the prospect of yet more protests public pride al-jazeera all cost. i geria and between all the latest nations to sign the african free trade deal at the african union summit in asia $54.00 out of $55.00 countries in africa and now part of the single market agreement eritrea is the only african country that hasn't signed up to the deal yet it didn't participate in a goetia in the past because of its conflict with ethiopia and remains hesitant the a cool removes 90 percent of trade tariffs between signatory states trading is set to start next july to give member states time to prepare interests brings us more now from the capitol man me. the political will is not the all or thing that's required to move these deal forward initially african leaders are looking at 2020
6:11 am
to start implementing this and it's going to be a market for more than 1500000000 people that's one and a quarter 1000000000 people on the african continent on the agreement looks like it could work but there is a lot of things that needs to be done infrastructure for example needs to be put in place before africa can compete favorably with asia north america and even europe now various additional problems that africa needs to sort out before this finally takes off and that is the key issue of security from the sale region right across africa countries are battling extremist violence and communal clashes from within their own states and leaders here are calling for quick action to resolve them. with the future looks bright for our countries and our continent but the looming threats of terrorism the looming threats of criminal organizations and into communities conflicts could jeopardize this beautiful future and these are strategic threats that could without appropriate responses destroying our state
6:12 am
institutions and for the ordinary africans on the street he is looking he's expecting a lot from leaders a lot from these countries to establish this single market so that he can have jobs he can have the peace of mind and he can work towards earning a living however economies want but the expectations should be tempered because there is a lot of work that needs to be done before this market finally takes off in 20 twentieth's and research by the african leaders. will support is a trade deal hope that will bring employment opportunities to millions of people on the continent as it was explaining there malcolm webb is in central kenya to find out what the agreement means for farmers that. what betty tibet grows here on her farming kenya ends up in more than a dozen african countries beings from these soya plants will make cooking oil our idea is some also be added we know or more they so we
6:13 am
decided to call soya because there is that for growth and then it is their main quest crop for us. the oil from bessie's beans is bottled at this food factory in the town of seeka as well as using locally produced oil its own is sometimes called will from neighboring countries as well without subject to trade tariffs and so it costs more the products made in this factory also subject to trade towers in some of the african countries that they're exporting to the proponents of a new continental free trade agreement that would soon change and nearly all of the member states of the african union have signed the agreement is due to take effect next year and progressively phase out 97 percent of terrorists. at the factory the director told us it will create jobs and reduce costs if it's implemented this will
6:14 am
be the single biggest market in the world where there will be free movement of goods and services big. projects like to look very good but they implemented has to be done with a united africa with united thinking united in imminent danger while leaders promise free trade the african union many still pursue protectionist policies at home selling manufactured products across africa's borders often isn't easy it's here at the port of mombasa that goods manufactured outside of africa are imported to the region. most african countries trade more with countries in europe and asia and with each other economists say the free trade agreement alone won't solve that and that they'll be resistance from a powerful few who make fast profits from the status quo the politicians have become beholden to these types of folks and i think you're breaking up much more
6:15 am
than might appear at 1st glance you're breaking the system that's been there since independence and the products from the food factory a truck to around the region that this kind of manufacturing and export happens less in africa than any other continent economist say free trade within the continent would change that and create more jobs and income for people like betty but many feel it's still a long way off malcolm webb al-jazeera the kenya. johnson is publisher of africa briefing magazine i'm pleased to say so with me in the studio now. this deal holds great holds a lot of potential doesn't it you're talking about $1300000000.00 leave you alone and in a trading area where $3.00 trillion dollars is not only that the figures are impressive what are your hopes for this for this agreement well i don't very hopeful know who will cook yet it will be of course political good as sheep who will have to.
6:16 am
someone that will that they had the 1st place to set up this trip body and implemented just over one and about 2 days to try and eradicate those pretty suspicions amount of cells because no one country who'd be an ally that we need to treat together ok if say ghana is the biggest gun on equity were i the biggest produces. globally right so you you you leverage your comparative advantage in the production of a certain good rate and then the other party too will do to save so it to be like you know a nation's hutaree free exchange here and there so you to boost it to bush straight from a one africa street. countries 70 percent in. 27. or safe to represent and you open your plane on 6 percent so if we're able to push
6:17 am
straight which is forecast to increase by about 15 to 25 percent in the media of tear it to be good for the country it will spread the expertise. across the continent or to create jobs and those are those are that those are the benefits and we were hearing in our ports just now that people have high expectations of this tale they want to see more growth they want jobs and they want unemployment to me brought down but in order for those things to happen these countries also have to tackle things like iraq chris and corruption exactly that's one what would it i mean bureaucrats see it on across our borders and on corruption and not only these 2 things we have poor road and rail links so there's a sober thing ansible you have it's a year after it's a little bit hard a poland in some areas so this so what the 3 they do to do to work on in order to
6:18 am
make an order trickier because. said that it will be closer than in that case why not focus on domestic reforms investment in infrastructure and then. have a strike a deal like this that then in a grouping of nations why not focus on working internal challenges for a sick enough in this little suit as a goal to work toward right the good is the route to create. a free trade area in order to be strong and we will to mix it to the end in south africa so work towards that reward you will to do x. to achieve that goal thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us jonathan off from africa briefing magazine thank you it was so of the news hour we'll bring you much more. tensions are high in sri lanka as thousands of buddhist monks hold that 1st biggest family since the easter sunday bombings ethiopians in israel
