11:07 am
to take a spin for themselves so that we can all live a life that's free. there have certainly been images of rioting and looting in new york city but it's also important to see the vast majority of the protests have been exactly like this peaceful young people mostly coming together to protest for their rights and a protest for justice and and really you're getting a sense of a sense of outrage and many telling us that they will stay on the streets as long as it takes. we've spoken to protesters in other cities to hear some of what they've told us. i cannot just sit in my room continue my studies continue to work as if nothing is wrong this is something that is affecting every single black person in the united states and it is the duty of non-black allies like myself to come out here to put our bodies out to show that this is not acceptable it never

a percent in 2016 older blue collar workers like the ones that used to work here in the steel industry were crucial to his victory and they could make a difference again in 2020 national polls show that among senior citizens like these former steelworkers joe biden is more popular than trump i hear more and more people in the trustworthy that are just not trustworthy the state has one of the oldest populations in the country but polls have been wrong here before widebodies that are republicans. they all told me to same thing or not vote for him again. well you know that's a very heartening but. we all thought that hillary was a hue and the last time around the president hasn't seen the country rally behind him as usually happens during a time of crisis or attack but his base remains committed we saw it during his

monday morning. an update on hong kong now where the turf is laid a car alarm has defended beijing's plans to impose a national security go on the city lamb says any country that imposes sanctions or makes moves to affect trade would damage their own interests she criticized what she referred to was foreign governments double standards or national security and highlighted the u.s. as an example the able finally guarding for. foreign governments have been responding in a high profile manner some have threatened certain actions and i can only say that they are adopting double standards they take their own country's national security very seriously but for the security of our country especially the situation in hong kong they are looking at it through tinted glasses he had almost. what we have recently seen this kind of double standard most clearly with the riots in the united states. iran's foreign minister says an iranian scientist imprisoned in the
11:16 am
u.s. is on his way home. he pleaded for his release after he contract a covert 19 he'd been accused of stealing state secrets while on an academic trip to the u.s. in $26.00 states was actually acquitted last month but was transferred to immigration custody because his visa had expired will speak to mostafa question about this and iran affairs analyst on skype from tehran thank you for your time 1st of all there has been some suggestion conjecture out there that this may be if not now but in the future something of a prison a swap do you think there is any swap on the cards or is this a case of someone who was acquitted and is finally heading home hello thanks for having well. as a mother of. yours some might say and suggest that after iran. but there's an american. problem. due
11:17 am
to. this has been a deal but i'm still a little probability that because. iran has said 350000 more emanates for her in a virus conditions or it's given them all holos. but the point here is that mr ask areas case seems to be a little bit different from the prisoner swap deals that went through in the last few years within iran and the united states because he was he went to a trial and he was exonerated of all charges actually by the united states and he was sent to at the camp it was then that we hear iranian saying that they are really warty that about these conditions into the corporation camp. because of the krona virus outbreak in the united states so he was already set free i mean
11:18 am
exonerated actually from all charges if he was convicted and was pardoned by the u.s. department or if his trial it was a stop and if he had not gone on trial then we could see a deal probably going through but he's case which is very important to or stew iran because he was a sheriff universe a technology professor. seems to be a normal case that he has been exonerated of all charges so we should go to interrupt mustafa so we should view it. in more isolation than anything else because when you always look at the bigger picture with the u.s. and iran it's always very complicated and as a previous guest said to me not long ago they almost on the brink of war. yeah situation is you know a little bit complicated in iran and the united states especially when you have donald trump in office iran has been demanding the release of all its prisoners in
11:19 am
the united states especially because of the current operate. american officials have given the offer cultural there they do not mean to release the reigning in prisoners they want the prisoner swap deals to be part of a larger agreement through negotiations and off course with the pump a.o. and doll trump said preconditions making it impossible for iran think of any kind of negotiations with the united states so basically he's a small the move probably could be escalate this situation a little bit but not much as far as we have donald trump in all innocence ok let's not focus attention joining us from tehran thank you for your time differentiated thank you thank you very much oil rich venezuela has just introduced a new fuel pricing system that ends decades of highly subsidized petrol prices. the
11:20 am
government is now selling gasoline imported from iran actually the changes made to long lines and confusion at petrol stations with many questioning the rising prices in a country which does have the world's largest oil reserves a latin america editor to see newman explains. in venezuela the story of raising petrol prices has been a kin to the fable of the little boy who cried wolf and just like the little boy in the story that government had been vowing to raise prices at the pump for so long that many couldn't believe it when this week it actually happened. half a dollar per liter only had $3.00 which was 6 liters of petrol according to the new rate but it's still bad and very poorly organized because we're in a super oil rich country. for most venezuelans it's a shock petrol has always been cheap but in the last few years it became virtually free with hyperinflation running at nearly 2000000 percent there were no bills or
11:21 am
coins small enough to pay for a full tank now they have to pay at international prices just slightly less than in the united states. we should have a minimum salary like people in the us like in colombia the minimum wage in columbia's fast superior to ours which is $4.00 you can charge a national prices but such a low income but while raising fuel prices after more than 2 decades is a sensitive issue continuing to give it away was unsustainable with a near collapse of vitrified the opec member had been suffering acute petrol shortages now thanks to shipments from iran petrol is flowing again. there is the 1st time i've come to fill up and i really didn't have to wait in line as long as i'm used to doing here i just put in 4 liters 2 dollars and it was actually fast. though still long the lines are very different from the time when people used to have to line up for 3 days to fill up. many are paying in dollars because cash
11:22 am
in believin is the local currency is a scarce as petrol used to be and the debit card machines don't often work. public transport will continue to be completely subsidized by the government despite threats from the united states iran says it will continue sending venezuelan supplies if it requests it. and venezuelans will have to pay for it and a premium something that's never happened before and yet comes at a time when people have never had so little to see in human al-jazeera. argentina has once again extended its deadline to restructure a $65000000000.00 debt the government says it hopes to reach a deal with creditors by june 12th a currency plunge session led to unsustainable bonds that could further damage its economy argentina is already in default after having missed an interest payment extension last month but despite being the new epicenter of the global pandemic
