1:07 am
forms of oppression protesters and police officers have rallied side by side in south carolina demanding an end to racial injustice the demonstration in downtown columbia so thousands marched for martin luther king park to the statehouse organizers say the protest was a recreating of the historic 1000000 man march which saw crowds converge on the capitol in 1905 to promote unity among african-americans this is protest as gathered again at the site in atlanta where an unarmed black man was shot and killed by police on friday night brooks was killed at a drive through restaurant after resisting arrest for failing a sobriety test demonstrators also rally there on saturday setting fire to the building the city's police chief resigned less than 24 hours after the shooting and one of the officers involved has been fired but we can go live now to andy gallagher he's in miami so justifiable anger there in atlanta but how could this
1:08 am
change the momentum of the protests. well i think if anything charlie is probably going to increase that momentum we're already seeing that today with once again coast to coast demonstrations and protesters taking to the streets to make their voices heard now incidentally in atlanta 2 civil rights groups call the firing of the chief of police there and the officer who discharged his weapon at mr brooks purely symbolic they think it's nothing but a minor move not addressing much deeper problems within the police force across the united states some local democratic politicians have been out on the streets talking about how the police there should deescalate everything because they say the use of tear gas and rubber bullets particularly when there are children among those protesters which is what is claimed is simply not working so i think those calls and particularly the death of mr brooks on friday night will increase the
1:09 am
determination of people across this country of all races to carry on calling for police reform now many police forces across the country since the death of george floyd 3 weeks ago have done things like band chokeholds in new york they're talking about releasing the records of troubled police officers but nothing really to tackle the systemic racism that protesters say has been evident in the police forces here for years if not decades and longer so the calls are not just about getting people fired or seeing chief of police is resigning it's about systemic change within the police forces and also addressing economic issues as well those are something that president did talk about he is talking about putting an executive order in place but he would only suggest that police forces don't use deadly force i remember there are $18000.00 police forces across this entire nation but there is no joined up policy on any of those police forces they each operate
1:10 am
independently so those calls for reform those calls for change we're seeing that across this country as those protests continue to take to the streets an ever larger numbers. as you say decades in systemic racism but how do you reform the police to remove that is it a case of defunding or is reform enough well i think it may be both certainly from the perspective of those people out on the streets now the defending of police is an unfortunate phrase in many ways because president trump framed it as people getting rid of the police altogether which is not the case it's more a case of taking police budgets which in some cases are huge and slashing those budgets to use the money to fund social programs to pay for social workers to go out with the police when they're dealing with people with mental health problems so it isn't getting rid of the police it's restructuring the police perhaps retraining the police and you know ultimately what happened on friday night with mr brooks was
1:11 am
already the d.a. in atlanta said this an unnecessary use of deadly force this man was running away from the police he posed no threat say protesters so why escalated to the level of the ultimate question is if brooks was white how would they have treated him then. and he got a gun monitoring events in the u.s. for us thank you nigeria's military has hit back at i so and bokeh fighters it says were behind 2 coordinated attacks which killed at least 60 people both civilians and soldiers died when fighters opened fire on a village in borno state in the northeast of the country on saturday a united nations humanitarian center was also burned a committed to its report. this is what operation life your dollar looks like from the air the nigerian military posted video on social media showing what it says is its response to saturday's attack in mumbai that was followed by another attack in

ongoing social inequalities 3 years ago. a community in a tower who had raised questions about safety net the looting were not listened to and one of the main reasons we would argue i would argue that they weren't listened to was because of institutional racism because of the demographic they were largely a muslim they were largely black they were working class community and actually they were not taken seriously. the pace of reform has also been slow at ensuring this current happen again as many as 2000 buildings are said still to bare the flammable cladding that allowed the ground fell flames to whip up the side of the building and rage out of control with as many as 56000 building residents living at daily risk grunfeld tower and coronavirus have more in common besides lives from very different backgrounds in one of london's most multicultural settings imperiled then and in turmoil once more in as elders escape the fire with her family and
