of any survivors but it's looking increasingly unlikely so just to remind you a boeing seven three seven belonging to ethiopian airlines it's crashed shortly after takeoff with one hundred forty nine passengers and eight crew on board when we get more details we will return to this story for you. next sanctions threats accusations and protests the political crisis in venezuela is deepening the capital caracas has been gripped by both pro and anti-government demonstrations opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president addressed his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the government. today the solution is intervention excuse recruits. demanding
5:03 am
a trade to fabricate this whole show claiming the militant know to be true. even if. after a very tense wake up official supporters are back on the streets to protest against the government of nikko last month during their called was made by one why don't monday after returning an international tour heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest ones of penicillin history at the moment the whole capital is powerless one of the but at the time protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water and food the government should step down there were no i'm here to defend the democratic choice of all people when we voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike one door and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. and agree with the united states' view on
5:04 am
venezuela. we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one guy joe as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president. neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize as interim president of venezuela to get this straight you're complaining because it's reported that you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well that's all it's like a complete since three weeks he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the militia so they're fifty countries is not even close
5:05 am
that it's the time to act in support of democracy and that news coverage of the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage more functions to work we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator and pressure was further stepped up on the venezuelan government throughout the week u.s. vice president mike pence announced that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas maduro would have their u.s. visas revoked washington special envoy to venezuela elliott abrams hinted at sanctioning third parties for their support of the venezuelan leader and the u.s. national security adviser john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venezuelan ally cuba the whole region should stand against caracas but i guess the have takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate who saw people should be on. the united states is exceptional literally bouncing by different rules to
5:06 am
you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas
5:07 am
a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments that didn't like their now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and he's a wella and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and merica knows better in syria half the
5:08 am
world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good and now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in
5:09 am
africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what his but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizes what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continents oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is
5:10 am
true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one nine hundred fifty four with our burns or the interventions that he carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. he had a vast movement took to the streets of paris again on saturday and it's continuing stand against the french government. by i live.
5:11 am
i don't know. i'll be on the capital more than twenty eight thousand protesters rallied nationwide protest been ongoing for seventeen consecutive weekends with demonstrators demanding improvements to living standards that's despite president macross attempts to calm public company. by canceling proposed fuel tax hikes and launching national debates into the issues at hand he's also erupted in the cities of. hundreds of demonstrators have gathered there are reports that there were a number of injuries the protesters sustained in standoff with police. hundreds of islamic state fighters have surrendered to u.s. backed forces in the syrian village of the last i still held area near the iraqi border but as medina kata never explains there are fears that the terrorists are
5:12 am
just biding their time. the small syrian village of bug has been a focal point for the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now and it's been cold the last remaining enclave for feisal forces in syria and not without good reason the world has seen crown suffer scaping civilians and even jihadists who chose to surrender and addition to the terrorists there also their wives and children to. praising the islamic state with the different slogans they also showed the soles of their shoes as an insult even now they still believe this is not the end of the caliphate just a short while ago though donald trump announced that his army and allies crushed islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety
5:13 am
percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however there has been a wave of different opinions from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground for instance they had of us central command well he is sure that islamic state hasn't surrendered and the threat is still real he says the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and waits for the right time to come back reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over and at least for now president trump's announcement that u.s. soldiers for pulling out seems more and more in doubt but nothing seems to be certain in this ongoing conflict especially with the unpredictable situation and. you could
5:14 am
in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis here. surgeons you know are we doing our work come back if we have to well as general votel testified in tangram recently he said that. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have farms we believe that farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date trying to later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's one hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces you see advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on
5:15 am
a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so i says is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. in the village of but this has been a hot spot for the syrian democratic forces for several weeks last week the u.s. backed troops launched an assault on what they called the last eisel held area in the country when he has to make its last defiant stance those who fled its remaining stronghold faced new threats hunger and illness. looks. like tacky i didn't really have to john i says i love seeking jihad for
5:16 am
god because we are all muslims and we have verses about jihad even cry. about the killing slaughtering and torture some are repentant and have left islamic state but at the spirit of the regime it had the right approach. the conditions are definitely dying to count the problem is nobody was expecting these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped. again our breaking news we brought you the top of the program an ethiopian airlines passenger plane carrying one hundred forty nine passengers and eight crew members has crashed shortly after takeoff it's
5:17 am
a brand new boeing seven three seven that had just left the ethiopian capital addis ababa and it was bound for the kenyan capital nairobi a statement from the airline on sunday morning said that it crashed around fifty kilometers south of the capital around and debris site about six minutes after leaving the internet nation about survivors or any possible casualties our correspondent on the quarter is across details on this and he'll tell us what we know a little bit later in the program. join me every thursday on the alex simon short and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you that.
5:18 am
question countries are very reluctant to recognize the fact that is that is why mike formally and also to admit that they were perhaps wrong in. condemning him or siding against and so with glee in the early stages of the war so they're terrified to undermine the reconstruction process by the prolongation of sanctions i think it was in countries with winds as the tuition where this is serious we can start to you know ways in which he started by a third power not russia iran not by the west and by the g.c.c. or by china. welcome back south africa's anti-racism drive has had to huddle well after an
5:19 am
century remarks from an m.p. who said true freedom will only come when the white population is subservient to the black. i don't want blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have been feeling we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic workers. is the leader of the economic freedom fighters it's a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years when a national debate with his views on race and class has twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people he was also expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve the sewing division with the organization the apartheid policy in south africa added more than two decades ago but the country is still struggling with racism white people make up just nine percent of the south african population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to
5:20 am
reclaim much of out loud all but according animosity across the board. general ideology of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder you want to obliterate you want to end completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and not producing and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist thirty five thousand white families all eighty percent of the land we don't all want to speak to you as
5:21 am
a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact i think that tenant white people always think everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is true what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says you must take the learnt even these politicians controlled by money who has money why it's when you ask majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true white people are somehow denial of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. without tea from moscow let's try to get you up to date on the plane crash that we've been reporting for you this hour the details only came through in the past
