5:03 am
month were that has now changed. we now enjoy the talk i an era like it. this guy is gonna be in charge because he's not when a book is shown man in charge for a research on government in jobs. so he got to read older. people were hanging over for the cry regime. the swift deployments of c s t o security forces. $3600.00 russian lead troops is a clear sign to kai of has moscow's backing. they are now helping to strengthen his position in north. so turn the capital renamed after now that by of state media no longer mentioned his name, internet blackouts have made it difficult to gauge public reaction. i finally reached a political activist by
5:04 am
a telegram. he didn't want to be named just informational camps, which i know last because we have a lot of rumors. it was, it was out of her as with his relative lead, angie, there's an hour shift. all the stories and theories are based on this lack of information. rumors and official propaganda. those rumors only adding to the uncertainty that that dominates life, kazakhstan, rubbing for his dea walker al jazeera. paul murphy is a member of the irish parliament of the people before profit party, and he was previously a member of the european parliament involved in human rights issues in kazakhstan, his as long existing inequalities have fueled the protests. i looked on as a country with enormous natural wealth in terms of oil and gas reserves and exploited by not only russian oil companies, but also western companies,
5:05 am
chevron and so on. and also of course explorers by or the benefits of which go to those at the very top of the society context. so this massive well on the one hand, side by side with extreme poverty, including for those workers who are actually generating at this well. and i think that body is the backdrop combined with a very brutal authoritarian regime. brooks, no disagreement, no opposition parties. and so really the fuel price rises, as i understand is we're the straw that broke the camel's back. and now you have an uprising to attempt to overthrow the dictatorship, obviously, of games now within the dictatorship of different factions, trying to maneuver for position. and, but certainly defeating us, i'm guessing from the ground is a sense to us. the whole regime has to go. that the oil well should be under the control of an ordinary people working class people in context on use for their
5:06 am
benefits. i think it is really a place to the end between the regime and the uprising. i'm security. the regime is very concerned that's reflected in the internal struggle that are taking place, but also the brutality with which they're prepared to respond. let's get more analysis on kazakhstan and bring in william courtney who's an adjunct senior fellow at the round corporation in 1997. he was appointed by president bill clinton, a senior director for russia, ukraine, and your region affairs. he's joining us from washington. d. c, welcome to al jazeera sir. so there are really 2 events that are happening here and kind of expand or the anti government protest under power struggle. and you say what started as a popular uprising against an autocratic or a government has turned into an elite competition for power. talk to us about that part of the story. so what we've seen is really a widespread peaceful protests that broke almost all over the country very quickly
5:07 am
. and that happened. sometimes it happened. we're pension reform protests couple years ago and russia for example. but factions, the elite apparently became scared. and so some of them are continuing against each other. there could be $23.00 factors clear, and it's not clear what the oil is are. for example, my see most the head of the former head of the national security council was very close by a family of i. f is urged people to rally around trying to clear that there's a separate take hire versus a bias faction for example. so it's a situation that is motivated just by politics inside because it's strong. russia has played really low role stimulating these divisions. what is the significance then of the arrest of the security chief on suspicion of treason?
5:08 am
as you know, that seems to result from jackie among factions, and perhaps seen of a concert to be coming to powerful and one faction. so another more dominant faction had him arrested. and how loyal you were, you were mentioning loyalty just a moment ago when you, when you look at the security forces, is it possible to gauge how loyal they remain to the elite western causing some of the security forces decided to go over to the side of the peaceful protesters regime or the lead to compare competing for power, are concerned about a lot of security forces. and this could be one reason why the forty's called on russia to set in their troops because they wanted to show the russia had backing, was backing the the leaders in the regime. and of course,
5:09 am
rush on catholics share a long history, because extension is a long border with russia. it has a sizable ethnic russian population. will that russian involvement be welcomed by all invitation. russia send troops will be very unpopular among fox and f. russian troops were to shoot because ox that would be extremely popular and could alienate conflicts on from russia. something like what you're crane of spin alienated from russia. so i think the russians will want to keep their troops out of shooting situations. for example. another concern is that alter nationalists in russia would like to bring 2 or 3 or 4 of the regions. and the northern part of cars that have large ethnic russian minority this like to annex them into russia. so if those russian troops were expanded, number were to go to the boss this to create
5:10 am
a new crisis. how do you think this situation is going to unfold in the coming days? so what's next? are not easy to predict. probably among the lead factions competing for power, there will be some settling down. but it's not clear how soon this will happen. but whichever faction takes power, it will be important for that faction to find some way to calm people down who been out protesting in the street, especially against the irish go said, you know, a lot of people have been living not very well, despite tremendous energy. well, so whoever comes to power in cost is gonna have to deal with that. thank you so much. courtney for joining us from washington d. c. they're welcome. now at least 56 people have reportedly been killed in an air strike in ethiopia,

5:28 am
protest is remain undeterred in their quest for justice. as the demonstrations continue into a 3rd decade, a new generation of activists have taken up the fight for florence li al jazeera. at least 7 people had been killed and lay furnace in brazil when a slab of rock broke off from a cliff falling on nearby boats. take a look at the fire department says over 30 people were injured and 4 are still missing. the navy has deployed divers and helicopters, heavy rains may have contributed to that massive rock coming loose. the most powerful telescope ever launched into space has successfully completed its 2 week deployment phase. james webb, telescope is so big, it has to be folded to fit in the rock. they've carried it into orbits. unfolding the mirrors was a crystal milestone. the $10000000000.00 telescope can see the 1st stars and
5:29 am
galaxies for more than 13000000000 years ago. it's now moving to it's orbital point, 1600000 kilometers from earth. amy lynn thompson is a florida base space in science journalists rates for space dot com. she explains the significance of what's been achieved so far. it's incredibly huge achievement. this telescope has been 25 years and the making and scientists are so ready for it to get to the point where it can actually send back pictures. and these were the crucial stops that had to happen to make sure that that works. it has a sun shield which is basically the size of a tennis court and that has 5 different ultra thin layers to it. so just those alone had to a unfurl and b tension. so that way it would actually keep the telescope cool enough to complete at science objectives. and then on top of that you had the
5:30 am
mirror unfolding. and all of that is just a significant achievement. so it is going to look very far back into the universe as maybe about a 100000000 years after the big bang. and what it's going to do is look at in for red light. and so that's like the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that we feel as heat. and so stars and galaxies, planets whenever they form are very, very hot. so the telescope is going to look for those heat signatures as far back, you know, as a 100000000 years after the big bang, which is incredible. so we could not only see some of the 1st stars and galaxies, but it can also do things as sniff out x o planet atmospheres to see what kinds of chemicals are in there. maybe even to find, you know, other habitable, habitable planets out in the universe. ah,
