8:08 am
fireworks even using broke barriers that were meant to keep them apart from another march organized by anti racism groups. but some broke away. scores of police officers moved into position to stop further breakouts of violence there's already been scenes of tension between those far right organizations and the police that protest itself meanwhile what the black lives matter movement here what's do is focus on the issues rather than any possible eruptions between them and the far right organizations the. one way the black lives movement did that organizing smaller marches across the country. but even in those marches such as this one in the northern city of new cos all the far right also issued out their own calls looking for confrontation throwing flares and taunting the police the events in the us have triggered debates about the state of
8:09 am
race relations in britain but there are elements of society who violently resent that. found by far right leaders under the guise of patriotism they would rather provoke than meaningfully engage. sunit i have all al-jazeera london. riot police in front so far tear gas to disperse a largely peaceful protest against racism and police brutality. dozens of people defied a band to join the march in. central paris the rally was led by supporters of adama is a french black man who died in police custody in 2016 under circumstances which remain unclear no one has been charged despite multiple autopsies. personally i've never had a bad experience with the police but i'm not going to lie to you yes i'm scared of the police i don't want to put all police officers in the same camp there are good
8:10 am
police officers but the problem today is that there are too many bad ones so of course as a person of color when i walk in front of the police i feel bad i'm scared and above all when you see the videos you think to yourself that could happen to me. meanwhile police have converged on the arc de triomphe in central paris in defiance of the government they're resisting moves to implement reforms including the suspension of officers accused of racist acts it comes days after just the interior minister promised a 0 tolerance policy for racism within french law enforcement the noisy of the get up with coming back here we want people to know that the police if it up the police the time the tired of being stigmatized we just want to get on with their work normally there's often and you might have seen at the rally that colleagues were attacked we had several injured this afternoon so enough is enough at some point the message from politicians has to be coherent with what they expect from the police force. that are fears of
8:11 am
a coronavirus resurgence in china health authorities have recorded the highest daily number of infections since april parts of beijing on and on lockdown after dozens of people tested positive after visiting a wholesale food market for more on this let's speak to debian gopalan in hong kong just bring us up to date with what the latest is on these numbers 1st of all. right as so about $38.00 of those cases are from the markets are being traced to that market that you mentioned and around 17 are said to be imported from a flight from a bundle of their ship to from dhaka to which is a southern province which is so the southern provinces now banned flights from a bungler there as they're trying to contain those imported cases but going after the cases in beijing which is causing a lot of concern because of the sheer number of people who could be infected from
8:12 am
that cluster that originated that market there are concerns that the cases could actually be spread through the food and food packaging and that's where the virus came from so the government says they're going to test the 10000 workers that work in that market it is one of asia's biggest wholesale markets and they will also test people who have come into contact into that market with that markets from may 30th onward so this is a very large scale and devore that they're trying to promote to end they are also saying that this is going to be a prolonged fight against the virus in the capital that's what the health ministers are saying so along with that that shut down about 11 nearby neighborhoods people's movements will be restricted they won't be allowed to leave their homes and schools and kindergartens in the vicinity will also be shut down and public a major public facilities and sporting events will be shut down across the city so there is
8:13 am
a sense that the government is really trying to contain this virus but it's still unclear how far it's spread already with cases detected are traced back to that market in 3 other provinces now rob the chinese government was determined to show that it was in control of the virus not long ago this is presumably going to raise questions about whether or not the lockdown that it brought in did come in too soon . well robin that press conference that was given in the past hour the health ministry said that there were no 0 cases in beijing domestic cases in nearly 2 months so they had lifted a lot of restrictions the concern here is beijing has a population about 20000000 and many areas are very high density and the spread of this case resembles the start of the virus if you recall back at the end of last year in the city of one with a population of 11000000 in the coronavirus had 1st surfaces there at the markets
8:14 am
also in the government put in draconian lockdown measures or what was seen as that at the time but since then many countries have followed suit to try and contain this virus now much of the country the government the chinese government did roll out this kind of a lockdown of this kind of restrictions across much of the country but also of concern was the economy and the people themselves who many of them if they couldn't work could put food on the table so eventually as the number of cases dropped they started lifting these restrictions because now the focus is going to be on testing so while they are putting in restrictions movement restrictions and isolating cities they are going to do a massive testing scheme across any areas which they say could be vulnerable to the virus as do their gopal and bring you updates on the situation in china from hong kong. still ahead on al-jazeera an embarrassing u.
