6:02 pm
was. due to the national assembly and people were trying to force their way in the police arrived and threw grenades one hit the guy who tried to push it away with his hands as a reflex reaction and the grenade went off well the situation seems to be something that we've seen for many weeks here in paris clashes between the police and the protesters with tea a gas being used to disperse protesters and also needs also being shot into the crowds but of course the protesters are normally the ones who do start off these scuffles by throwing projectiles such as rocks and broken glass to wards the police but what we've seen today is it seems that one of the protesters one of the shell
6:03 pm
asians who's actually photographing the event for the social movement actually had a his hand blown off in a grenade on television and a man volunteer medics were first at the scene two of ours rushed up to help him do the general commotion another team of medics surrounded him to wall him off when a person is in that condition he needs to breathe properly he don't want crowds gathering around watching and filming that would frighten the injured person even more. but this is not the first time we've seen injuries like this since the movement started back on november seventeenth basically back on december tenth in budo protested that actually picked a grenade up and it exploded as he held in his hand there's also been many other injuries in these protests including more than a dozen people who have lost their lives since the start of these protests and the figures suggest that some one thousand seven hundred plus chelation ones have been injured in some method another i also. a thousand. police officers has also
6:04 pm
been injured as a result of these protests but despite all of those injuries the protesters say they will continue coming out to the streets our demands remain in place that's why we are marching we are demanding better salaries and conditions in france. we are here because we don't want to be subject to government decisions without having a say we have one group the elite of them who decide whether we have the right not what we have to pay for our message is the same this harsh we want a better life so what has the government done to try and stem these protests well a president gave a big speech back in december where he announced that the minimum wage the simic would rise by one hundred euros a month he also said that people who in bonuses for the end of the year they wouldn't have to pay social contributions and that a new tax and people over time would be in a similar situation no tax no social contributions on that and the government is in
6:05 pm
the middle of a national debate across france getting people together to air their concerns to talk about the things that matter to them so the government can decide whether to make the changes that people say or not however the jle asians have said this isn't enough for many well that the offers the concessions being given by present that go on with too little too late and that's why they've kept coming out to the streets and now we're hearing that the protesters are going to change tactics permanently the government is becoming more and more repressive we denounce the extreme violence and the use of excessive force the authority is not seeking compromise but passing laws that limit our rights so we have collectively decided not to declare the time and place of demonstrations and powers from now on rule not be the partners in crime with the government there was the mention there of a law to limit right so what these relations are referring there to is what's known as the anti who it was discussed we. the by deputies the m.p.'s in the lower house
6:06 pm
in the national assembly and they've approved that now that law it's going to move on to the senate before it goes on the statute books but that law would essentially limit some of the individuals from going to protests if they deemed to be a public threat also part of them who is the idea that if you cover your face going into a protest even with a simple scarf you could be liable to up to a year in jail and a fine of fifteen thousand euros so many people claiming that this new law which is set to pass in the next few weeks here in france is actually contra against their civil liberties. we discussed of the anti-riot bill which with our correspondent mentioned with our guests they say it is unlikely to ease the standoff. i've seen just ordinary people who are going out to demonstrate who are peaceful people who cannot stand anymore to have the only answer from the government being violence
6:07 pm
that and if tomorrow they cannot cover their face because police fired tear gas at them what type of democracy is that it is built could enable police to impeach people from going to demonstrations because there is a doubt that the might bring troubles to the demonstrations this is minority report we're going to arrest people send them to jail because we think that maybe they may commit a crime this is just showing the tyrannical side of my truck today and i think it's going to be more central to the streets to the internet to the social networks to denounce the system until until he leaves this is a law which is certainly necessary to protect our police and to try to jail souls who are violent but it won't stop the fundamental demonstration which is nothing to do with this kind of violence so i think that in fact you will of course jails all swap violent should not demonstrate but you are not going to answer the merits
6:08 pm
of this demonstration which is pension which is that the government should consider the french and the regulators and. already venezuela self-proclaimed a leader has raised the stakes in the country's political crisis in an interview with the a.f.p. news agency one goh i know said he does not rule out asking the united states to launch a military intervention against his rival president maduro. but i will then know we would do everything possible once again this is obviously a very very controversial subject the making use of our sovereignty and within our jurisdiction we will do what's necessary. opposes trained as agents of foreign governments of the united states introduce sources of unrest of internal chaos to dismember the states in venezuela they have driven us to the point that libya was taken over syria was taken to the point of an armed opposition they have
6:09 pm
attempted that but we have not allowed them to and venezuela is at peace with. military intervention is actually one of the main talking points between both venezuelan president nicolas maduro and the self-proclaimed president one goh i don't know what dura has already denounced the u.s. as imperialist and his exclusive interview with our team and he's also visiting many military bases across the country is encouraging the troops to remain loyal and he's overseeing the armament of people's militias they're now on the other hand why don't has he hasn't ruled out authorizing the u.s. to intervene and he's been trying for over the past several weeks to encourage military officials to defect and a very limited success and that's because many people in venezuela don't think inviting the u.s. was why does that idea that washington believes. its reaction stems from its pivot to doctrine of overthrowing regimes and democratic systems that don't like
6:10 pm
having their arms twisted the humanitarian aid is a big lie it's the worst possible diagnosis of the situation we've seen there is no humanitarian crisis the us is trying to frame the situation in a way that would allow it to invade venezuela this won't happen we won't let it happen the army and civilians are united and determined to defend the country sovereignty and territorial integrity. now why don't the us say that this humanitarian crisis. it is very real except what aid means is actually a point of contention between the parties the venezuelan government claims it intercepted an arms shipment from the us earlier this week and it there there was reportedly assault rifles ammunition communications equipment flown in from miami as as a result the military has blocked roads leading into the country from colombia one of the u.s. allies and it's these reports the red cross to stress that humanitarian aid needs
