it's really has stepped up today in this movement where we've seen people moving away from just chanting and calling for the government to resign to them taking over government institution it started earlier today when crowds started throwing stones at the national assembly and then tried to set alight looters came in and started stealing elements inside the parliament building meanwhile another group a crowd swelled to the national television and caught the signal remember during those where 2 days ago the president had broadcast his message to the protesters into the nation calling for dialogue saying that he would organize a national unity government appoint judges to the constitutional court even new elections in certain constituencies in the contested elections earlier. this year in the parliamentary elections this bite all of these. concessions made by
a president. the protesters went on taking over major arteries in the capital bamako the 2 major bridges that connect the south and the north of the city has been taken over by protesters who are setting up roadblocks to really kind of control the exit and entry of the capital they call this and nationwide the civil disobedience movement it's really to call upon president committed to change the direction they want him stripped of his power they want to be involved in pointing a new government appointing a new prime minister and this is a movement led by a coalition. members of trade unions as well as opposition leaders is the influential. who's really been leading this protest movement in the absence of opposition leaders to see who was abducted during the parliamentary
elections earlier this year so really is stepping up the intensity of the movement it's something like an occupy movement of the capital bamako the man's of the protesters are met. doreen. nicholas so is this putting any pressure at all on the president himself well he's clearly under pressure from the streets but he hasn't moved fast enough in order to meet the demands of the protesters were the protesters want is no want a national unity government they want a transitional government moving away in trying to strip president of his power they want a new election the parliamentary election where there was a historic low turnout it happened during the coronavirus outbreak where in certain insistence instances there was only 10 percent of the electorate that came out to vote so they want to new vote because some of the votes went to the ruling party
they want a new constitutional court this constitutional court that confirmed the election results of favoring the ruling party as well they want to see an end of corruption . president came to himself and his family members are accused of using state coffers for their own personal gains so they want to see an overall overhaul of the political system they want to see new faces in mali's political system has been in power for the last 8 years he's really he's won back elections just 2 years ago and despite his promises pledges to bring peace to mali to bring unity to mali it seems that for the protesters he's failed and that he needs to go right thank you very much for that update from the car.
now a lifeline to millions of syrians living in a sliver of land in the country's northwest is at risk of being shut down russia and china have vetoed a u.n. security council resolution to keep 2 border crossings from turkey open for vital aid deliveries 13 other members backed the proposal by germany and belgium which once it's a keep the passages open now the mandate for the border crossings expires on friday and the council will later vote on a rival russian proposal as food medicine and basic supplies for millions of people hang in the balance let's take a look at why the security council remains divided when it comes to syria so the u.n. and humanitarian groups say 2800000 people in syria's rebel held north west depend on those passages for aids russia has insisted that only one is necessary the bible how a crossing saying that accounts for 85 percent of a deliveries but the u.s. says 1300000 people living north of aleppo depend on the other crossing. let's
bring in our diplomatic editor james ray's he's joining us from the united nations so where do things stand right now then james. well the security council is meeting as i speak in closed session trying to negotiate among themselves trying to pick up the pieces because we are in a very difficult situation as you say the clock is ticking just hours away to a situation where the current authorized aid that can come in from borders into syria is going to expire that authorization and will be nothing in its place because the security council has been unable to agree on anything as you say the latest vote was announced about 90 minutes ago and russia and china use their veto on the idea of extending the existing 2 border crossings that was the situation earlier in the we can earn that was also vetoed by russia and china russia is already put through forward 2 different versions of its own resolution and they
didn't go through because they didn't pass not enough members voted for them for them to pass there wasn't a majority of 9 that you need so there is real deadlock here with time running out and russia seems very insistent there's only only one border crossing it's worth reminding you the u.n. used to have authorized until the end of last year for border crossings and it was a veto by russia that forced the security council to come down to to russia seems to be playing the same tactics again it's been strongly backed by china which is making the point not just about the number of border crossings but about sanctions it wants to see an easing of the sanctions regime on the government of president or sad because it is concerned about the effects of coated 19 and the financial crisis that is affecting syria and lebanon right now and wants to see some easing of that
sanctions situation is there a compromise out there then maybe the problem is this not only is time running out the security council. that means virtually is using some virtual voting procedures each time it votes it takes 24 hours members submit their vote by letter and then at the end of the 24 hours the votes are counted and they announce them so it looks like whatever happens right now that the end of friday there will be no age going into syria on saturday morning unless they can come up with something very last minute never say never i mean they're meeting virtually for example could they suddenly come in here and vote in person anything is possible but it's not looking very hopeful all right james may as we'll let you go for now thank you very much for that update from the united nations so as james are saying aid agencies say there could be dire consequences for millions of displaced syrians if an agreement isn't reached priyanka gupta has more. on these makeshift shelters in italy provence bear witness to the staggering human cost of syria's war now it's 10 pm.
children who weren't born when the fighting began live with their families in one of the many counts for those displaced not once but many times the adults are mostly out of work. nearly 3000000 syrians in the last rebel controlled on cleave in the northwest depend on aid to survive they are anxious about russia's efforts of the un security council to limit vital cross border liveries. the russian efforts to close the crossing is very very harmful for us this is not of any benefit to us it will prevent humanitarian aid we are living by that and we fight over it without its nothing will work we will die of hunger. supplies of united nations humanitarian aid from turkey to northwest syria is already restricted to 2 crossings russia wants to cut access to just one relief supplies from iraq in
jordan have stopped since january because of russian and chinese opposition. what can we syrians expect from russia russia has done nothing but destroying displace us if it were not for the russian regime the war of russia and iran against us we would not be displaced in this carol you're doing it in seas have been supplying lifesaving food and medicines to displaced syrians for the past 6 years and they want to keep the crossings open your energy is in general it's about 30 percent. so if. all the court's order and actions in next time. this year extend will go to the course and we know actually from. our experience with very dream in general they will not . abroad by any kind of or within or this year.
