5:02 pm
all well i think this is a very fluid situation for the police and for protesters here in central london in westminster across the river over their parliament square and just up whitehall trafalgar square the 2 focus is now of on going protests and rolling clashes between right wing protesters and the police it all began 3 or 4 hours ago in parliament square as right wing protesters gathered as advertised to protect the statues of bargain square some including that of winston churchill was the face last weekend in the black lives matter protests there so they've come these groups to guard their monuments in the words of the leader of britain 1st one of the groups represented there and there was an expectation that a number of matter protesters would still gather at the opposite end of whitehall essentially moving from hyde park towards trafalgar square even though their organizers had called for that march to be canceled the police believed
5:03 pm
a significant number still would and that worry was of course to avoid violence between these 2 groups to avoid these 2 groups confronting one another in the event it seems black lives matter protesters have not turned out in significant numbers at all very small numbers indeed at the moment there is a disturbing situation it appears in the making in trafalgar square with around 30 by some accounts black lives matter protesters being protected by a police cordon inside trafalgar square the square had until very recently been full of right protesters unclear at this moment what exactly the situation is there but trafalgar square is now blocked off by police from anybody even coming and some of those groups so far out protesters appear to have been exiting the square possibly making their way back to westminster where as i say they've been these rolling series of clashes with police bottles and other projectiles thrown flares set off as well. and
5:04 pm

5:05 pm
protect their statues are now involved in confrontations with the police who also ostensibly are here to protect the statues the statues particularly winston churchill in the center tough and a number of others have been boarded up since last weekend but churchill statue had the words was a racist door across it by black lives matter protesters last weekend of additionally been threats by britain first's leader again this morning against nelson mandela's statue saying why do we need a communist terrorist mass murder in our parliament square so you know the statues have become the focus in the last week certainly of what people describe is a new culture war but right now this is tended to say to violence aimed squarely at the police or agenda thanks for that reporting from london. well sonia gago is with a group of. protesters as she's a high park in the city. it is a considerably smaller gathering that is taking place here in central london the
5:06 pm
black lives movement and partly because the leader of the london black lives organization has called this off officially instead concentrating on getting people to go to the local demonstrations marches instead to raise awareness for their issues the other issue of course is the fact that there is a counter demonstration taking place in london this saturday that a far right organization now they have been really very very very violently critical of the black lives matter movement there's already been scenes of tension between those far right organizations and the police that protest itself meanwhile what the black lives matter movement here want to do is focus on the issues rather than any possible eruptions between them and the far right organizations. all right let's move on and the district in the chinese capital beijing is on high alert after dozens of people there tested positive for corona

5:13 pm
a tension in the of commandeer to dissolve this matter and it always uses the specter of the chinese god it was used and i think the indians are not biting that's where we are i mean the indians of say no we are going to go ahead with this road ok we have a problem with that we've done this but this is not new because i think india's attention to a focus on as i said the story on lovelock and the chinese and caution that so in a way this is a game of attraction and distraction in which is now triangulated between china india and of course so i think in the fields that yes it can kind of ignore for the moment it can ignore ignore those complaints by robot but having said that it is also a step change in a historic all relationship or a special relationship between nepal and india because in a way india has kind of downgraded power and the government there are saying going
5:14 pm
