10:07 pm
late october last year protested once again take to the $0.03 to take over. there have been calling for the military to return to their barracks and leave to dance politics, and thus protest come before a visit is expected by senior usaa official, the assistant secretary of state, a 4 african affairs, and a you official envoy for the horn of africa are expected to arrive in order to, to give us the port to the you, an initiative which is hoped to break the political deadlock that has left to them without the government for more than 2 months now, to dante's sovereignty counsel led by the military says it accepts the un initiative to try to break the political deadlock, but protested they, they don't want to negotiate with the military. many of the organizers of these protests they will not sit down at a round table where the military present political parties, on the other hand, are divided. some say they are willing to negotiate,
10:08 pm
to try to get the country out of a deadlock while all the say they also want the military going before any kind of negotiation takes place. the biggest challenge to the you and initiative that is currently under way is the issue of trust between the various parties. since the military take over and late october, the trust, the very fragile trust that existed between the political parties and the military was broken protest. those have been met with sir gas live ammunition by security forces that you and has condemned the use of force by security forces, at least 64 people have been killed. hundreds have been injured as they demand a complete civilian rule despite the violence that protested have been met with. they continued to organize, protest, continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military return to the barracks despite the violence that protested have been met with. they continued to organize, protest, continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military
10:09 pm
return to the barracks. all united nations has been at responding to this has been condemnation of the use of force by sydney's military. i think, as we've said in the past and very clearly that we condemn the use of lethal force against demonstrators, whether it's in courtroom or the places people have a right to demonstrate peacefully. oh, it's very important that we see not miss fear that is conducive to the ongoing consultations both in the streets and obviously inside inside the room. we've also seen reports of disturbing incidence in hospitals and other places or theodore matthews, director of the africa program, air pin council on foreign relations. he joins us now via zoom. so at least 7 people have been killed, i think around a 100 others injured. the protest is
10:10 pm
a not backing down. the military is prepared to use deadly force against them. does this mean we are likely to see more bloodshed and saddam? yes, i think it does. the military seems to have made a grave miscalculation. they saw the increasing demands for the civilians to dominate and take over the government and the terry has been resisting that for quite some time. now they are. 4 trying to break the back of the, of the spirit of the protest movement and hoping that they can quiet the streets. and then somehow, whether the international opprobrium that their actions have come and come out on the other side of this in control. but it's not working out and they're ending up in a corner. the united nations and western governments have been, well, they've issued statements of condemnation against the crackdown on protest is,

10:12 pm
a high level international meeting, the so called friends of su down that's taking place tomorrow. and it will be very important the statements and maybe also actions and consequences that, that meeting concludes with. right? so what would that involve? what actions or consequences, or any sort of policy could compel the military to restore that civilian components of the transitional government that existed before the curved let's be clear. the most important and powerful force right now is still the sudanese street, but their international partner, their allies, the group of states who stand with the democratic aspirations of sudan also have a role to play up until now. since the qu was perpetrated it in october 25th, those partners of all frozen their distance to suit the gesture that they made. what they haven't done yet is bring any sticks to bear,
