and the lack of cobra. 1900 vaccines. both the united states and the european union are urging the cuban government to listen to protesters demands. but havana has sought to blame washington for the rest. yeah, made crying out for freedom in the streets of savannah. the greatest show discontent with the socialist government. the 1990s packed in the trigger for this protest. if the desperate economic situation right now the country is suffering from food shortages. we're here because of the repression of the people they are starving us to death have on it is collapsing. we have no homes, nothing. now the police arrive and they begin to drag off people in the crowd, the arrest and the violence only make the demonstrators angry. we are not afraid.
they cry out. security beat me and my daughter a child. they beat us just because we were walking down the street. the support of the government had been out in the streets to president miguel diaz can know himself led this rally was organized quickly in a town outside savannah, where the anti government protest began early on sunday. so that we came here to show together with the revolutionaries of this town, the streets belonged to us with the president, encouraging, supported to mobilize against opponents. there were ugly confrontations. here revolutionaries detained opposition. protest to the cubans who were here. we had never going to give up this revolution. never a communist regime, his rude cubits in 59. it survived the fall of the soviet union and the debt which
found the fidel castro. now, would it again be challenged? i like the show. it is unlikely to go without a fight or they want to pull it. now, monica ribeiro cabrera. she is a cuban journalist when it gets good to have you on the program. we're hearing from the white house in the u. s. in a statement that these protests appear to have been spontaneous. what's your take on that? well, thank you for having me. i was started by saying that it is the 1st time in 60 years. so sharp popular in huge demonstration of social breast. it was a nationwide, i mean we started to corporate from the, on the 1st row this that it was in the,
in the west of the island. and then through social media you can see how there was then at least one demonstration in every province of the, of the country. so it was really nationwide and even even the island, the island of use that is our island also have some money to stations on the demonstrations. and monica mean, it seems on the outside. it seems surprising when we know that these protests, in part, over the lack of access to a cobit 19 that seen, and we know that cuba has developed its own vaccine. i mean, how do you explain that shortage? well, i wouldn't say that is actually not a single call. the grass is caused by an accumulation of situation. i condition that is that didn't start even with the, with the, with the panoramic. of course them working to the worsening of the situation with
the co. 19 it's a fact. it's a trigger is i would say it is more about food shortages, lack of solar and are pretty people. these people are doing our lines to have access to, to food and basic needs, and also pain in the currency that they don't have. what's happening with the back in is you guys developing 5 koby vaccine candidates and actually they just have approve the 1st one as in itself and at least 2026 percent of the population has received so far. at least one. those of one of these candidates and then the percentage is fully back tonight. there's a lack of stages and,
and also the fact that they were in actual vaccines. but rather, roy back, let me ask you before we were another time president miguel diaz can now he believes the united states for being behind these pro. just saying that the u. s. trade embargo has made life harder for cubans. is there any truth in that? well, actually, not only him, the united states itself, acknowledge that the, that the propose that the purpose of the embargo is to cause social grace and the spirit in the population and to overthrown the human regime by, by this mean. so what happens is that q and people is also tired of hearing the embargo use of the government. just an alibi, or excuse me, is it's bad decisions in the, in the management of the country,
which is also true. people are eager for, for the freedom of of the, for economy free. those boys question freedom. so i would say it is hard to say that is only one cause for breast ok. cuban journalists want to cover the barrel. cabrera want to we appreciate your time in your insights tonight. thank you. thank you for having a good night. will south africa has deployed its military to tackle the violence, sparked by the jailing of former president jacob zuba, at least the 6 people have died. hundreds more have been arrested since the protest broke out last week. the unrest comes to south africa as high as court begins. hearing zoom was appeal against his 15 month prison sentence, for contempt presidency around the photo has called for com, saying the unrest could lead to shortages of food and medicine. soldiers gone the

driven by hardship and poverty. the poor and marginalized bad that are made branch of the destruction that is currently underway. juma is popular among many of south africa is less well off. his imprisonment has laid bad deed divisions in the country. and earlier we spoke with our correspond, christy, while she is in cape town, we asked her about who is behind this unrest. it started out with the people in the mecan calling out to the former president, support is to go and prepays against his incorporation, his imprisonment. i'm so initially when we're coming out with the blocking roads and creating also chaos, they were saying that this is in the name of the for the president, mr. to be freed back. it is now the to ration where you can see they are criminal
intimates. now you've got a bad reminder, a lot of the people that will be carrying out the bees by these people come from under privileged communities. we have them on policy and unemployment here in south africa. you can see that he's what people walking in the shop, stealing basic items in many cases, low the baby and i some of the my. so there is now and in the middle opportunistic criminality taking place. people taking advantage of the situation, young children involved in this losing elderly people as well. so there was some incitement from the mac camp. initially, mobilizing support is sharing support is on, in terms of the retreat some of these videos where people were anything putting more people to do the same thing in the name of but it's not walk into a complete chaotic situation where there are different motivations that play that was the w corresponding christine moon, where they are reporting from cape town. let's take
a look now. some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world police in haiti say they have arrested a man who they alleged, flew into the country on a private jet and conspired to assassinate president giovanni on the lease the haitian national allegedly worked with the masterminds of the killing, luis was shot dead at his home in port prince early on wednesday, a report by the un has found that the corona virus pandemic has contributed to an increase in the number of people facing hunger worldwide. nearly one and 3 people did not have access to enough food in 2020. that's an increase of almost 320000000 people in a single year. a court in jordan has sentence to former officials to 15 years in prison for attempting to destabilize the monarchy. bottom dollar and shall reef san bins. i were found guilty of conspiring to install prince hamza as ruler. he is the half brother of the key print. thompson has avoided any charges
which is in the former soviet republic, georgia opposition law makers are demanding that the prime minister resign over the death of journalist alexander lush cut off by the camera. man was found dead in his home over the weekend days after he had been attacked by a right wing mob. towards police say they have detained 20 people for violence against journalists and the media optic scenes. as journalists and opposition, politicians pushed their way into georgiana parliament. they occupied the speakers chair and demanded that the prime minister resign. they blamed the ruling policy for a tax on journalists, some support for violent groups. among the pro test is the founder of the tv news channel where camera man, alexander laska. rob had worked until he was found dead on sunday.
georgia and police have not said how the germ this died earlier, laska rob. i had needed hospital treatment after being beaten by fall right. activists as he films and he l. g b t q. protests saw right. and church supporters attacked l g b to you. campaigners who are planning to hold pride events in the capital tbilisi . and last week, georgia as prime minister had called the planned pride events, unacceptable for many parts of georgia and society. and monday he dismissed the fresh protests over laska. rob is death. on the 2nd? yes, another failed conspiracy against the state masterminded by empty state, an anti church forces which failed and will never be successful in that country.
studies come, we're going to be not the but the protesters have promised to keep challenging. georgiana society's conservative values and demanding that the prime minister resign well from tbilisi, i'm join male by nana bush needs. she's the channel executive of t. v. pier valley, that's where the camera man worked, who was found dead over the weekend. it's good to have you on the program. me asking in to you and mr. lush cut our work together at tv prevail. what was your reaction when you 1st learned that he had di? first of all, thank you for having me and for having our channel covering this story on your channel. yes, we worked together and he was a very,
very good professional. and to be honest, he was one of the best camera men we had. that's why he was all that location that day. and he was a decent person very much and will be hard. so my 1st reaction, actually when i her 1st name ready, i read it is if his mom died and i my 1st thought was that, oh, they made his mom died because he was beaten up so bad. just a few minutes to really digest that not mom, but he died after terrible. so my reaction was we were devastated and we still are because it's his funeral tomorrow and you really don't know how to cope with me. and then let me ask you, is there, is there anything that he could have done while he was covering the story last week? do you think that could have attracted these, these right wing hooligans when these people, this mob? is there anything he could have done to attract their hate?
the problem was that they, the journalists, miranda and lex. so they got caught up in the weight of the building where the organizers were located. there were located in the office for and so they were just coming down there from shooting something up there. and the wireless group entered the incense and then they started running off to their case. so they really got caught up in that situation where all the anger, they got the victims of all the anger of this while a group know they had nowhere to go. there were caught up in their way and they 1st started thinking the journalists neuron. jeff, did it one year old young girls and they started holding her and so he took charge saying, hey, you don't, you know, like where they don't touch up. but then it's just, just trying to say a while and the check how they tell the story about 20 more than 20 people up to 30
people were feeding him up. they set him up to death. and this is very, very subject. the georgia prime minister has described the protests, and i'm quoting here as he failed conspiracy against the state. i mean, does that mean that the government is not going to be held to account for what has happened? is anyone going to be held responsible for the death of your colleague? like waiting that responsibility? that's the work for today. the prime minister made the statement off the constitutional statement. i can't call any other way because you said the majority of people are against they. so they denied the rights of minorities today with the shocking press conference, not only they're not taking the responsibility over what they be left monday, but they're completely trying with all this stuff and everything to justify all the chief safety because there were no war inforcement by the l c b at
that day where they knew that anti christ, while a group would be there, anyone who thought the boy unfortunately would have be their 1st place, right? that's a place where they should have protected, and there was nobody to protect neither our journalists know the organizers notified our our, our condolences to you on the loss of your colleague. no, no need said channel executive tv prevailing. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. thank you. or here's a look now, some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world. official results show no clear when in bulgaria is parliamentary elections, the center of white party led by former prime minister waco bonus off one of the most just ahead of a new populace party. but neither side looks like the diploma coalition. the result
could usher in a period of political instability as public anger at corruption is growing ukraine's president, florida b. lensky is in berlin, where he has been received by germany. president frank walter stein meyer. lansky will also hold talks with the chancellor and they are expected to discuss ukraine's reform process and the conflict in the countries east ukraine and seeking e u and nato membership. british police, british police have opened an investigation into the online racist abuse of 3 black english players. he missed penalties and the countries shoot out last italy, in the euro, 2025. and that's all the believe, said there have been offensive and raises social media, post directed markets rash for jaden santo and soccer. and after their midst penalties helped italy to win the game, which was held at london, wembley stadium,
england coach, your south gate called the abuse and forgiven for it. let's go to london. now we're corresponding charley chose until she is standing by fours. good evening to you, charlotte. this is not the 1st time that we're seeing these kinds of events. in the past players and senior figures within the game of urged greater vigilance from social media platforms. what kind of reaction have you been hearing this when there are the call for more vigilant, sensational media platforms? but i think that the crux of this is why are these comments happening in the 1st place? pretty shameful conduct from some found go round really off to the game last night we were it when the city and then we thought seems if the chaos that we know that a group of friends stormed the stadium and now off to the game overnight. these come in targeting those 3 players who missed penalties, targeting their social media accounts, so extremely shocking we know as well, that
a mural of the play, one of the pleasure mentioned markets rush. it has had graffiti on put on it as well. so a lot of shock and a lot of quarters have a bit of soul searching, going on really about conduct around these games and the racism online as widely condemned. i have to say from a number of courses you heard gar southgate, the manager will say, prince william who is at the game last night describing that abuse as sickening, but it was clearly very, very tough. the play is also tough. for england, fans have really great love this team and what they ret present admire them very young, very socially conscious. they're taking a tough stunk when races and we know that they have taken the ne, ahead of games to, to highlight races. and some fans have actually booed that, and the government today is facing some criticism for not condemning the booing of
those players when they take the ne prime minister boris johnson austin, a press conference today. would he now take the knee? he successfully don't. not question, but he did fiercely condemn the racism, experienced by these plays. take listen to those who have been directing racist abuse that some of the players. i said shame on you and i hope you will crawl back under the rock from which youth emerged. i crawled back under the rock which you emerged. that was not the only topic on the agenda today. england is due to lift almost all of its corona virus restrictions in just one week. but the numbers, well, they're soaring, aren't they? sure, they are with thing over 30000 cases a day now, warnings that that could really climb a lot higher press conferences that we've made very clear today that the u. k. is very much in a way of hospitalizations rising as well. 5 warning that that will be more
fatalities. nevertheless, the government has pushed ahead with this last stage of the unlocking and it's roadmap out of restrictions is as a call that as other people are calling it to freedom day on monday, that's when you're going to see legal restrictions listed mosque wearing. for example. 1 now the government is doing, if not now, if we're not going to do this now, then when do we do it? they say someone is the best as good a time as any premier support. johnson said, you know, you weren't the pressure on the health services which period people meeting outside, but there are concerns among others in the science community warning that the u. k . should weigh to england, should wait until more people have had 2 doses of the vaccines. there are some who, characterizing this lifting of restrictions is something of a gamble from prime minister boris on. time will certainly tell charlie jilson pill with the latest tonight from london. charlotte is always thank you. he's
