7:04 pm
to de w. a. bruce, what are you hearing? well, it sounds like the government is having a hard time getting control over over any place in the country at the moment. you mentioned alma g and certainly you, there's reports that the airport is occupied by some protesters and the government buildings, as you mentioned. but this happening and other, other cities around the country because it sounds a large country and there's maps of this and you can see cities in the north, south, east, and west. all have been problems at the moment. so it's, it's really in there with the future of the call. the government is at this particular moment, i'm hearing about injuries not only amongst demonstrators, but amongst police as well. the over there, there were clashes, you know, certainly in almost either a bunch of overnight and the interior ministry said there was a 190 people injured overnight. and most of those were elise. but again, this is also been repeated another city. so we're talking about hundreds of people
7:05 pm
who have been hurt during this fighting. and now we get reports to that. there's been some shooting at least one protester according to our cause that service was killed in the western city of october on the coast. there is reported another protest or also there was shot and there is report 2 cars in our town in and on with that are driving around with no license plates and taking shots that journalists are, even in the case of alma t at one opposition leader without speaking, what is the background to this protest really about the, the price of petrol? no, not at all. you know, i mean, this is been building up for quite some time now. you know, there's the 1st, there's a segment of society, very small. it's growing very rich under nurses on those are by many of our family members of course and associates. but more generally, you know, he stepped down in march 2019 and there was expectations on the part of
7:06 pm
a lot of people that this was going to usher in something of a new era. but you know, he passed it on to us in march. the guy is eric eric. and even though those are but i was no longer. and he still has a lot of thing. what was going on in the country in the way the country was govern, didn't change really at all. so all these people that have been waiting, you know, 20 years or something to happen, something new, something that might improve their life. i've been very disappointed that you know, for nearly 3 years now, there hasn't been been promises, but not really any actions to reform the system and their own lives. don't seem to be getting any better at all. so let's talk about the present political system because the president sacked the government as we understand it, i'm took over leadership of the security council. so what does that tell us? well the security council is the more significant they know using the government as a scapegoat is an old trick. you know, they were them every time there's on rest on the president promises it, you know,
