refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the u. s. capital ryan. i'm never going to back down and they took on the wrong guy and as an american journalist who had been imprisoned in me and mar, huge the spreading false information has been freed. ah, a lot of the presidents of the us and china are holding a virtual summer to try and iron out issues. the continued to raise tensions between them traded taiwan sovereignty and human rights in hong kong. are expected to be at the heart of the discussion. president, she jen thing and joe biden agree. they need to strengthen communication and coexist peacefully. we believe. busy and you and i have talked about this, all countries have to play by the same rules of the road. why the united states is
5:02 am
always going to stand up for our interest and values in those of our allies and partners. i think it's important we communicate honestly directly to one other about our priorities and our intentions are katrina you is in beijing force will be speaking to her in just a moment versus go to our white house correspondent. kimberly how kids who is live in washington for. so kimberly many things these 2 countries and need to discuss, but from the point of view of the abiding administration. what's, what's a stake here? well, what's a steak is ensuring that there isn't permanent and lasting damage as a result of the tensions that have been escalated between though worlds 2 largest economies for quite some time. what we've seen is a number of key differences, whether it be on human rights, on security, and particularly when it comes to trade. so what we know from the start of the
5:03 am
summit is that the u. s. president reiterated what we expected him to say, and that is that there needs to be an establishment of the parameters of the relationship in order to put in place what he called guard rails to ensure that this escalation doesn't turn into confrontation. and to that end, we know that the u. s. president did want to work out any sort of potential misunderstandings or miscommunications in order to ensure that there isn't conflict . we know that some of the big issues for these 2 is centered around trade. we don't expect that there will be any resolution to that issue, but instead that a pathway will be created in order to resolve future differences. we should point out very quickly that the u. s. president, although his polls domestically are lagging right now in the united states, he went into this meeting strong. in fact, it's no coincidence that just prior to the start of this virtual summit between the
5:04 am
2 leaders that the u. s. president signed into law legislation. that is a $1.00 trillion dollar package to rebuild americas infrastructure. this will create jobs, but it will also allow the united states to compete with china in the 21st century according to bite. and so as a result, the u. s president wanting to make sure that that playing field is level so that there could be increased fair competition and not some of the concerns that the us has had with china and disruption of global trading norms as us, as alleged in the past. kimberly, thanks back. kimberly how kit in washington force was now speak to katrina you in beijing so katrina. how's the chinese government looking at all of them or without some initial opening remarks reported by chinese state media from president she didn't ping, he said that the relationship was at
5:05 am
a critical cross words and that he hopes the discussions would result and benefits for both countries. and that they could peacefully co exist. now, i think there is a real sense of quiet optimism from aging and a genuine desire to cooperate and to normalize relations or even get relations back on track is what a state media here has been reporting. and that's a big deal because as kimberly mentioned, this relationship has been characterized by tensions and hostilities since the previous trump administration. so that's the years now over a range of issues. but we have had some very positive steps taken to benefit that relationship in recent weeks. we had at the end of september, huawei tech executive, mung one joe released after about 3 years of detention in canada. she was the under u. s. charges. so that was really seen as a positive thing from aging. and then also we had just last week, the surprise joint declaration at the end of the cop $26.00 conference between us
5:06 am
and china, agreeing to work together to tackle climate change. so we have those positive movements at the same time, very real deep disagreements of reassures such as a south trying to see territory which china has pretty much claimed for itself. and also over taiwan, which beijing sees as red line issue, it sees taiwan as an all in that is part of china that will really inevitably be reunited with taiwan. and in recent months, we've seen under the body and administration, various gestures tools, taiwan, encouraging closest as well. so they're all very real difficulties. but there is hope that there will be common ground. i think the 2 things to remember in terms of these talks is that she and biden have known each other for years now since the obama administration, so they will be familiar with each other. and the 2nd thing is that sheet and paying is coming from a very strong position domestically here in china. last week we had this crucial meeting and aging where he consolidated his power. he's about to enter an
5:07 am
unprecedented 3rd term and office next week, next year. sorry, and he will perhaps rule for life so she didn't ping is going into this meeting pro very strong position and those those things will definitely impact his approach to these discussions. katrina, thanks that katrina you in beijing force or donald trump's former political advisor . steve bannon has appeared in court hours after he surrendered to the f. b i. he's facing contempt charges for refusing to co operate with a congressional investigation into january's attack on the u. s. capital particle, high reports from washington, swarmed by cameras, stephen ben and turned himself into the f. b. i. the former advisor to donald trump, remained defiant. i want you guys to stay focused on matters. remember not noise, this is all noise. this is all about january the storming

5:18 am
shots. the crowd was provoked entitling protesters to defend themselves. the crowd seized the defendant running with a gun. he's lying to them. he still has the gun. he's shot some one. this is provocation to them. this is someone who has committed a criminal act and is putting people in danger. danger followed soon after. he has nothing to demonstrate to the crowd that he isn't a threat to kill again. and it turns out he does. it turns out within a few seconds, he does kill again. i submit you ladies and gentlemen. but in this situation, the crowd has the right to try and stop an active shooter. they have a right to protect themselves that turned rittenhouse in self defense argument against him. judging, drop to lesser chargers, a coffee violation charge, and
5:19 am
a charge of a minor being in possession of a dangerous weapon. but he also allowed prosecutors to add to lesser homicide charges. one of homicide in one of attempted homicide. that of a tacit admission by the prosecution that they might not have made their case there . but it also gives them another chance to walk away with a conviction on something. now the young man, whose case has become a national rorschach test, is waiting on 12 jurors to decide on charges that could leave him spending his life in prison or going home free. john henderson, l g 0, can nozer, wisconsin. a key was government is clamping down on planned opposition protests across the country. it's declaring the rallies illegal and stopping some demonstrators from leaving their homes. the protest had been taking place in other cities around the world. in mexico's capital, people demonstrated outside the cuban embassy. there were pro and anti government rallies and cuban americans in the u. s. state of florida turned out to show their
5:20 am
support for the anti government movement for the 2nd day in a row. andy alika is at a rally in little havana, in miami. it may be quiet on the streets of cuba, but here in miami, home to around a 1000000 cuban americans, there is a very vocal crowd here who are supporting protesters on the island. this entire community watch with deep concern at those unprecedented protests in july this year . and what they see is hope they see an island no longer ruled by the castros where there is potentially ado generation that aren't just going out on the streets to complain about food shortages or housing crisis. but actually trying to change things, reform on the island, and here in florida and extremely important state with a deep relationship with here. whether it's both republican and democratic support, what these people are doing. and they are campaigning for. they've always campaign for freedom. democracy for an island, they care deeply about where many people. so our family and friends living i rec
5:21 am
farnsworth is vice president of the council of the americas. he joins us alive via skype from mclean, virginia, to talk more about this. thanks very much for being with us. so, let's talk 1st of all about what's behind these protests. i'm in cuba and, and why they're happening now. well, hold on, it's great to be with you. again. there are happening now because the opposition movement wants to maintain the momentum, the other really developed and gained from july 11 when nationwide protests really rock the island and in fact, frightens the regime. and so the opposition is trying to see if they can maintain that momentum. the reason why they chose today is because today is the day when the island is trying to reopen in terms of tourism, in terms of schooling and other activities coming out of cobra. and so it's an
5:22 am
important date, symbolically both for the cuban government and also for the opposition. and how is it just just gives a sense of what, what, what day the life is like for many cubans at the moment, not, not just from an economics perspective, but politically as well. well, it's increasingly difficult. clearly, basic food and commodities and medicines, particularly during a pandemic, has done difficult to come by for the average to this. and if you're part of the regime, or if you have political contacts, then your life is at least marginally better. in some cases, much better. and that's part of the frustration because the common existence of most cubans at this point is just trying to survive. it's just trying to get the basic things you need while you see pictures now and increasingly evidence, social media and other other media. things like lavish weddings, of, you know,
5:23 am
members of ruined class, etc. and so you're wondering, why are you coming up with all of this trouble and difficulty? meantime, there is no political freedom at all. and you have to remember, this is a country that is going through a lot of demographic change. the younger generation, of course, the revolution was from 1959. and so, you know, most people obviously don't remember the revolution, but they also don't remember, even in the period immediately after the revolution. so for them, they've been living in hardship their entire life without any meaningful prospects to change politically. and therefore, you're seeing a lot of frustration bubble over people without feeling that they have much to lose decide. well, now it's time to really make the voices heard. you talk there about about the revolution and cuba for, for much of its revolutionary history has been as been ruled by the castros for decades by fidel, and then his brother ro. but that era is, is, of course,
5:24 am
now over. and now the day they don't lose launch in cuba, is there a sense that the kind of fear factor has been broken here from the point of view of people? well, it's a really important point that you're raising yes, female, the late fidel castro and enroll castro were the leaders until the last spring was transition to be all deals canal, who's the hands picks up for tomorrow? castro role is still very much alive and very much record in some people pulling strings. some people pulling the strings behind the scenes, but there was a palpable hope. you're going to send that with the transition to the canal, the spring. that things would loosen up a little bit, that he was a new generation of leadership himself, that he was more mindful of the international view that that change really didn't need to come to cuba. and in fact, what happened is he doubled down on a very strong security response. he went after democracy activists and he did not
5:25 am
move or liberalize the economy. and so this hope for change, that's what palpable last spring really was dashed. and so i think you can draw a straight line from there to the protests of july 11th, and then to the, to the emphasis today and perhaps going forward in terms of a population that remains on satisfied. so what do you, how do you see things progressing? from here, then, in terms of just briefly, of, of, of how this will play out with, and whether the government strategy will work. well, the government strategy to this point has been to preemptively oppress the protesters. massive police present preemptive jailing of dissidence acts of repudiation, where you would have mob a show up outside the doors of leaders of the opposition. and so in the short term, i think the regime is going to continue to do that. but here's the thing. it doesn't mean that the frustration goes away,
5:26 am
it just means that it's gone underground and it's hum point. the likelihood of it exploding into real public protests again becomes more and more, you know what you need as a catalyst. what you need to far, i think of perhaps the fruit feller from tunisia that launched the europe spring. and that's probably the more likely scenario at this point when that would happen. who knows, but, but the more the government represses legitimate desires for foreign medicine. and frankly, political freedom, the more difficult it will be in the longer term. good to speak with you eric pfizer. appreciate talking to us. thank you. as soon eas authorities have released agency, it is hard to me, a bureau chief from jail and will sell me and cabbage. she was taken into custody overnight on saturday, after security forces rated his home. i just did a condemned in the strongest terms. the actions of sudan military and american journalist, imprisoned in me and me off almost 6 months, has been freed military court and sentenced him to 11 years in prison. just days

5:29 am
that made the difference. the military did not provide any details on why fenster was ultimately freed. the un says there are 47 journalists behind bars in me and mar. 20 of them are facing charges directly tied to their work. fenster says the focus should remain on their plight and he'll help fight for their release. natasha name l de 0. doha of u. s. has imposed new sanctions on nicaraguan officials in response to the presidential elections earlier this month. daniel, take, i want a 4th consecutive time in a vote. many countries say was rigged. most opposition figures had been arrested. all bard from running the button and administration has slapped restrictions on 9 and nicaraguans, including the energy minister and finance, vice minister, an influential council of elders from the libyan city of miss serrato's school for
