2:00 pm
thousands of converge on madrid from all across spain as people play unemployment and austerity struggle to make their voices heard. crowds are rallying in ukraine's eastern city of donetsk as pro russian protesters take to the streets in defiance of the new leadership in kiev. that even venice votes to break away from italy in an official referendum with local saying they're fed up with forking out billions in taxes for the capital. from a new center here in moscow this is a national with the twenty four hours
2:01 pm
a day in spain the so-called march of dignity has seen thousands of anti austerity protesters from different regions walking hundreds of kilometers to the capital madrid many say the physical exhaustion is nothing compared to the strain placed on them by continued mass unemployment and ongoing spending cuts of course. in madrid . new it two weeks thousands of people from across the whole country have been walking by forts covering hundreds of kilometers in the rain under the sun but they've now reached the destination the spanish capital men and women question years and students those whose jobs and those without bono gathered for a mass protest rally to make their message heard in earlier we caught up with one of the columns often the protestors here's what some of them had to say. hello sir why are you here. why am i here i'm sick of this government with all the promises they never fulfilled they said they were going to create more jobs and
2:02 pm
lower the taxes but it's a lie instead unemployment rolls from four to six million this is the only way we can fight back i mean yes i lost my home last sunday and has been walking since day one we are united when in bad health education and most jobs are leaving quite is similar to what cause you to take part in this march thing imo there are too many reasons my sons have to work every day from eight in the morning to five in the evening only for four hundred euros per month and also i'm a teacher and i know what cuts in the public sector mean all these addictions this is insane i'm marching to madrid because i can't walk to believe russell's we must stop them and the troika and the spanish economy has been going through severe problems and frankly the government has been giving a little hope for any positive change unemployment is around at around twenty six percent which means that the only other even member state where the situation is
2:03 pm
worse in that sense is greece while you thought of women choosing in a higher standing at around fifty percent and many graduates are simply forced to leave spain searching for jobs elsewhere millions are reported to be heavily depending on pensions and food banks and other benefits while the troika of international creditors and brussels are the. manning more job guards more reductions our salaries at the same time aren't giving any positive forecast that the economy here in spain would improve if the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and is only making the thousands of people even more angry. of the news now we're about to see pictures from outside an air base near the crimean city of sevastopol home to russia's black sea fleet it's still controlled by ukrainian forces and the crimean military is calling on them to surrender local officials say ukraine has blocked the border with crimea preventing people including ukrainian forces from leaving the peninsula crimean authorities
2:04 pm
say it is a provocation well now that crimea has officially become part of russia ukrainian forces stationed there have been offered the chance to take russian citizenship and join the local military or leave but for those crimean serving in ukraine it looks like a struggle for them to return home. every day she says to me mom we're on high alert they're preparing us for transfer and i asked him how much longer they have to stay she says they're not saying where didn't kept in the dark while our children of their guardian military equipment fully armed for calm but my son calls me and tells me that they are not being sad some rice and a piece of bread and see that soul food they are getting every day and eastern ukraine is being rocked by protests against the new leadership in kiev with many raising the alarm over the rise of neo nazi groups crowds are rallying in the city of the net six now and they're chanting russia and some of the morning a referendum on a possible session from ukraine brought
2:05 pm
a nail is there for tea. and here in donetsk where again thousands of people have demonstrated on the street said this time in support of a president victory on the coverage he was ousted by the to impose government in kiev thousands of people gathered on the square and eventually marched on the huge administrative building where there are demanding the referendum that they've been calling for for a number of weeks now so after we saw the referendum on sunday i see crimea join the russian federation this week it seems the people in donetsk have taken inspiration from this and demanding a referendum of their own to bring them closer to russia because those are people who are saying that they did not choose the authorities in kiev but also that the authorities in kiev don't seem to be listening to what to what they've been trying to say for a number of weeks now and here in the east of the country very nervous year do it was ukraine or russia and bella reuss we are brothers we want to be together and not divided and told how we should live and what we should do by the e.u. and america let's again call that is a legitimate president we are against the interim self-proclaimed leaders who craft power let me explain your solution no one is listening to us who don't have
2:06 pm
a leader to help us achieve what we want so far and what we want is freedom and not to feel for our children and our future. and the demands don't seem to be based on being pro russian but also seem to be based on economic reasons as well and they think that moves closer to russia would be more beneficial to the region than a move to authorities in kiev it seems to be moving closer to the e.u. . it's a similar scene like we've just seen in the nets can many other eastern regions protesters have been taking to the streets there as well saying they're making a stand against the near nazi leanings of the interim government well let's talk more on the situation in ukraine and crimea with professor chris bellamy he's a maritime security expert and also the claimed russian historian now professor we know of its historical significance but as a maritime expert can you explain briefly why it's about support is so important to russia these days well it all came out from when he first saw
2:07 pm
it in the seventy's and seventy's and he said there's nowhere not only on this peninsula but in the whole black sea that would be as good a naval base as this so it is a terrific harbor it's deep of the inlet has a number of running perpendicular to it it is a perfect harbor from seven hundred eighty three when it when it was created it has been the headquarters of the black sea fleet and of course was her road that plea defended for many months in the great patriotic war in fact the black sea fleet at sevastopol was the first soviet forces to far shots back at the germans after stalin had told there will be not support not to provoke they knew what they were doing i'm a started shooting back a member of the first soviet forces to do so let's talk about what's happening today the crimea ends they have voted to now become part of russia and yet the west
2:08 pm
and in the west the media blaming more scope for this and it's a shame is that really fair. i don't think it is the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the ukrainian government or interim government point of view on this i was watching that referendum last week and very intently and it seemed to be very well organized very calm and it certainly was not so as david cameron said of the power of the of a gun in a way even though some crimean tatars and ukrainians boycotted it nevertheless it was a clear statement that the majority of people in crimea wanted to turn to the russian federation which they had been until nine hundred fifty four and what do you make of the fact that president karzai he's just
2:09 pm
a nelson just told some u.s. officials that he recognizes crimea is full self-determination do you think he could be the first of many around the world now to acknowledge this well i hadn't heard that so thank you very much for saying that i think it's a case of the emperor's new clothes isn't it once somebody says hang on a minute. other people will possibly. say the same thing and interesting coming from him isn't it because of course he's enjoyed a lot of u.s. support in the u.s. will not like those comments coming from him bearing in mind of course tensions between him in the u.s. are pretty high. yes aside that is news to me just not how so. but yes the u.s. will not will not like it but the usual people who support the u.s. particularly our own country here britain and. the new of
2:10 pm
still taking the law into the. incorporation of crimea was illegal and are planning to give to the interim government in kiev. a famous economist one said i forget who it was the that might be for throwing good money after bad and given the way that the ukrainian economy has gone down since ninety ninety before it separated from the soviet union and i think that might be the case just very briefly from your security expert point of view we're seeing tensions now rising in the east a lot of fears about what's going on in kiev and the ultra nationalism affecting those people in the east and of course the news that ukraine is but the border with crimea. how do you see this now panning out do you think the tensions will increase
2:11 pm
and we could see violence all eventually smooth what what's the immediate future briefly. while i think the view here certainly in britain is that. spite of what the political leadership here has has said that the. incorporation of crimea into russia is a fait accompli and i think that if it stops that then i think people in the west will be unduly worried that the that the so-called sanctions which have been announced are gets named didn't have the jewels of secularly severe. measure by. i think if we see she followed it's in eastern ukraine and we start getting because of course it's going to be much much more complicated than the situation in crimea we get a sort of
2:12 pm
a bull's new situation where some of the people want to be a part of russia and some of them the living close by and intermingled don't then that that could be a very dangerous situation. and of course i think the west should be putting pressure on key if as as well as trying to put pressure on russia to come to have i think a major international conference to sort this out professor chris bellamy live in our london studios really interesting to talk to you thank you so much your perspective on all of this thank you well that the far right gaining influence in ukraine is not the main issue for european leaders who are now focused on piling more pressure on moscow over crimea the e.u. is planning to cut its reliance on russian gas after slapping further sanctions on the country when melanson he's a former british diplomat and professor at the great state university believes not all voices within the european union sound the same when it comes to sanctions.
2:13 pm
there is a disagreement behind the scenes between countries like bugg area and even germany about how far these sanctions would go because a lot of the important economic sectors in some european countries actually are beginning to depend especially in the energy sector on their corporation with russia so i think it's more a question of the hurt political egos because of the complete success of what russia has done it's going back to cold war rhetoric the threats are surprisingly unspecific actually know that a lot of large companies do not agree with these threats including boeing for example from the united states including chevron that so it's seen a doctor at washington the standing by ukraine's former opposition after supporting its rise to power while the op even has been hailed as a victory for democracy crimea's vote of self-determination is being dismissed as illegal or teaser started check a look at how the u.s.
2:14 pm
backed regime change played out. exporting chaos and to the world promoter of the right to self-determination and other high principles the us we are long as the days when the international community will stand quietly by while one country forcibly seizes the territory over another incidentally behind this noble statement is the number one med learn internal affairs of other nations. an example of what is known as the arab spring is. said of destruction achieving political purposes throw having full fire destroyed and fed the country that coined the term regime change promoting unrest wherever on the globe serves its interests latin america has been a major target of the us over the years and. we have examples of outside intrusion in the internal politics of states like mexico guatemala panama nicaragua
2:15 pm
haiti dominican republic and grenada repeated attempts of a coup in venezuela argentina brazil ecuador and bolivia there was no coup in the one hundred fifty year old history of latin america that the u.s. government did not apply its hand to. coincidentally u.s. participation in events in ukraine did not begin or end in distributing snacks or friendly gestures of support i've invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic train the west spent five billion dollars the stabilizing ukraine this is something that is a mess that is put on russia's doorstep by the west before it can have protests turned into chaos russia proposed that ukraine work with both the e.u. and russia the u.s. had another idea wanting to see ukraine as part of its ally the e.u. read to eventually find its way into nato there is no other path that would bring
2:16 pm
ukraine back to longer. political stability and economic power a popular joke among american leaders why will there never be a coup in the u.s. because there is no u.s. embassy in washington freedom sovereignty and international law all terms repeated like a mantra by u.s. officials but with a handful of examples of the u.s. attempting to property or other parts of the world that joke is not so far from reality and. washington d.c. . c.n.n. anchor christian pool has singled out russian officials including a reporter there and the stars he is full of a vitale he's the country's envoy to the u.n. and she blasted him for refusing to give comments and being afraid of tough questions. how people like churkin feel they don't need have to leave their comfort zone show king's own daughter is the u.s. based reporter for russia today in new york she's shown here quizzing u.s. state department spokesman jim psaki over this whole ukraine crisis and in the pond
2:17 pm
she's even reported on her own father. well the russian ambassador has already issued his response to the criticism highlighting this amanpour has only curious family links and also saying he's used to tough questions and accusations having been consistently speaking to the security council for years and to r.t. dot com for more details of the route. just ahead for you here in our international well british universities a widening their horizons students have been exposed to strict surveillance. we are trained up and we have a passion to be lecturers or to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents but the u.k. government seems to view the education process a bit differently stay with us to find out which home office policies are outraging the british academic and the.
2:18 pm
we wanted to create a realistic model that would represent life to pitch life as it really is. there's an accident six. one some people wonderful this the whole thing is a model. of. language. with. the.
2:19 pm
choose. the nations of voted overwhelmingly for their own sovereign state in a referendum on independence from italy inspired by rising european separatist ambitions eighty nine percent of residents from the floating city said yes to breaking away from rome's control in an unofficial ballot that means as many as two million people want to see the lagoon region under self rule a spokesman for the need to independence movement. says people have grown tired of the economic slowdown and therefore hungry for change. first of all it's not just banished sits the whole plane into a region which has five million people and takes up the ball kobe in northeastern corner of today's italy we pay seventy billion dollars in the euros in taxes to
2:20 pm
the value of state and only a fraction comes back so we're looking at a gap of twenty billion euros for completion of five million we're talking about four thousand euro per person so that's the main motivation so really it's not a question of whether roland will aloud or not it's a question whether citizens invent it will feel legitimized to stop paying taxes to rome and that's their main objective is to control of the fiscal flows that goes through rome and till now we always had a support to for independence we knew that from the poles we knew that many firms were in favor of a bait they can't stand italian state because it ruins their can pay to the edge european and the world market at such check now when our team is not up here on our website stories there include avoiding the n.s.a.'s all seeing eye google is about
2:21 pm
to move some christian technology to make its e-mail service new pretty. common. like the planned pullout of u.s. troops from afghanistan washington keeps pumping billions of cash into the countries we construction and the taxpayers' money appears to be flowing into the wrong hands more and how the corruption is being exposed one on to our web site. right to see. the. first book. and i would think that your. orders would. instantly. i. i classrooms are
2:22 pm
a space for open dialogue and not checkpoints that's the message lectures from the u.k.'s most renowned universities are trying to make clear to the government in an open letter published in the guardian newspaper they say that being forced to share their students' immigration records with a home office he's probably boyko want to talk to the academics who have spoken out against the policy. the british government wants to stop student visas being abused but the way that the border force is going about it has rubbed a number of universities up the wrong way over one hundred sixty academics from universities such as oxford and worrit have written a letter to the guardian newspaper saying that they are under increasing pressure to check the immigration details of their students want to talk about this in more detail i'm joined by one of the signatories of that letter professor desert friedman from goldsmiths university of london professor friedman thank you very much for joining us tell me what is it that u.k. visas and immigration are forcing universities and professors like yourself to do
2:23 pm
they want stringent monetary requirements on international students and we feel this is just simply discriminate sharee we feel that it's not really part of our jobs we are trained up and we have a passion to be lecturers all to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents but it's no secret that getting a student visa was in a tourist easy way for someone who had absolutely no intention of studying to obtain a visa to come to the u.k. what's wrong with the u.k. border agency checking that students really are studying if they really do want to clamp down on the abuses where they do take place that has to be in those countries where the visas are sold and not to try to get academics or support staff to do jobs for which they are not trained and have very little interest in doing the one hand we've got this reduction of immigration to the u.k. that the government says it wants to achieve the other hand you've had slashed budgets for universities and an increase in tuition fees so where does that leave
2:24 pm
universities right now universities are dependent increasingly on the income of international students and in their own self preservation you would think they would be lobbying incredibly hard inside government to say that this is on the accepted will and discriminator for me this should be a pastoral relationship. i do not want to treat my international student any differently from my home and e.u. students professor friedman thank you very much for your comments while the home office whose job it is to check that foreigners are in the u.k. legally they've defended their reforms they say that the process is now more robust and less open to abuse reporting from london. more international news stories in brief now israeli forces have killed three palestinians in a gunfight in the occupied west bank the incident happened during a raid on the house of a fugitive last member wanted by israel for his alleged involvement in terror attacks and recipes carried the bodies through the streets shouting slogans against
2:25 pm
the palestinian president is involved in u.s. brokered peace talks with israel tensions are currently running high ahead of april's deadline to set a framework ready to go shushan. i rubbed a thousand supporters of the far right golden dawn party of stage a rally called greece for greeks to test the child and slogans against the current prime minister and state controlled media from head of up to the local and general elections in may he says government has recently cracked down on the rising right shouting the openly fascist party which was connected to the killing i wanted to write we wrap up in the polls. one of the most secure locations in libya tripoli's international airport has been bombed explosives were detonated on the roadway there were no casualties it's the latest attack in the country which has appealed for international help to combat what it calls terrorism rogue militias are running rampant and have even taken taken over eastern oil fields.
2:26 pm
to the surface of pakistan where a collision between a petrol tanker and two passenger buses is killed at least thirty five people with many victims burning to death all the vehicles burst into flames just moments after the crash mostly because the buses were also transporting gas and does. chemist is on their roofs into city buses operating in areas close to the iranian border are reportedly often involved in the illegal smuggling of iranian fuel. brings up today for the moment coming up next to his breaking the set with host abby martin here on the international but if you're watching us in the u.k. prepared to open the world with george got away. i don't want to beat a dead horse i try to varieties opinion pieces but you created melt out hits really
2:27 pm
close to my heart and affects people i know when i see obama gleefully talking to self elected new ukrainian prime minister just burns the inside of my brain he's throwing hypocrisy gasoline on my fire of contempt not only to delete phone call from the estonian defense minister claim that the kiev opposition used against both sides but now the former ukrainian chief of security confirmed that the sniper fire came from a building under the control of the protesters at that time also the alliance currently in power in kiev glorified nazi germany and you slogans like putting jews and russians to the knife so america's first black president a nobel peace prize winner who was elected by waves of tolerant optimistic lefty liberals is smiling and chatting with a leader who is supported by white power right winger groups that use the murder of their own members to oust a democratically elected government there william nightmare is now my friends but that's just might be.
2:28 pm
you but you. big news for big players a chance for the tax profits to ten percent in bingo lingo this would be jump and drawers to little ducks quack quack it comes to herbie. what's up we all i'm out in martin and this is great in the set so for the past few months the attention of environmental activists had almost entirely been focused on the keystone x.l. oil pipeline rightfully so as a new report from the carbon tracker initiative concludes that keystone could raise greenhouse gas emissions by five gigatons by the year two thousand and fifty while the squabble over keystone continues a new report from think progress reminds us all that multiple other major pipelines have been proposed approved or are currently undergoing construction and get this
2:29 pm
many of these pipelines that run across canada and the west carry the same tar sands crude oil that is the subject of so much controversy with keystone furthermore a few of these pipelines would actually carry even more oil than keystone if you count the connections the pipelines are already in place perhaps most concerning is the energy east pipeline which could carry one point one million barrels of oil from alberta to canada's east coast every single day that's almost a quarter million more barrels than keystone in the u.s. other pipelines are expanding or undergoing construction such as their alberta clipper pipeline which will carry as many as five hundred seventy thousand barrels a day there was constant or flanagan south which will transport six hundred thousand barrels per day through illinois missouri and oklahoma so while we must continue to pressure the white house to not approve the catastrophic project that is keystone x.l. don't think about the oil industry as a mass expansion already happening right under our noses and it's great to set.
2:30 pm
a. very hard. yes. we are right here. all right folks i'm really psyched to introduce a brand new segment where i'll be calling out police misconduct brutality and
2:31 pm
malfeasance so let's get to the police beat. from corruption in the ranks to straight up police brutality cops overstepping their authority is an issue that every country in the world deals with as we can montréal canada nearly three hundred people were arrested during what police are calling an illegal demonstration ironically enough the protests happen to be against police brutality has actually been held annually in montreal for the last eighteen years according to live treats from the event the arrests were made within minutes of the protest and all two hundred eighty people detained received a six hundred dollar ticket however this has been the case for the last two decades protesters continue to arrest. and state lawmaker to not do away with a state law that allows cops to get this have sex with prostitutes as undercover
2:32 pm
officers are maintaining that they must be allowed this legal protection order to catch sex workers in the act i guess they're just tired of using handcuffs just for arrests these days move him back to the mainland los angeles and the city of high speed chases and daily instances of police misconduct the l.a.p.d. is just out. a new toy to their lineup of cruisers and it's in the form of a lamborghini to hold her head i don't know how to say that word a one hundred eighty thousand dollar car the department however said that the luxury car will not be used for any official police business no the new ride was actually a charity donation to the department and is only expected to be used for special events and recruitment great i can't wait for the media to jump on the story of justin bieber drag racing the l.a.p.d. as a new lambeau but while the l.a.p.d. high profile attempts to glam up the police force may seem laughable the department's history of police misconduct isn't a laughing matter especially considering that this month marks the anniversary of
2:33 pm
the one thousand nine hundred two l.a. riots which were sparked after a handful of officers were acquitted in the beating of rodney king and if you think we've really come a long way on the race wars in the last twenty two years think again according to a recent study by the journal for personality and social psychology majority of police officers actually view american african-american children as quote less innocent than their caucasian counterparts the study's author u.c.l.a. psychologist adds that the research finds that quote black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions in a tent at an age i'm sorry where white boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent and while these findings are hardly surprising considering the massive racial disparity in the u.s. criminal justice system the research paints an alarming portrait of how hard it can be to live in america if you're a young black male but amidst all the bad news regarding police brutality and racial profiling there's at least one positive news story coming out of all of this
2:34 pm
illinois supreme court just dropped down a law that once banned among other things the audio recording of police arguing that the law criminalizes a wide range of innocent conduct and really recording an arrest provides an objective account for all parties involved so this is certainly a good move now don't get me wrong police officers are an employee. part of our society we give them authority to make arrests and pay them to keep us safe in fact they often put their lives on the line to do so but when that authority is used to silence free speech crush dissent and single out minorities based on preconceived prejudices that's when it's time demand to demand accountability. on the show i like to feature grassroots activists and artists that have politically or socially conscious messages to bring to the table a lot of these voices you'll never hear on t.v. because radical thought is marginalized mainstream which brings me to jamie dunmore
2:35 pm
is a young spoken word how it from england whose viral online poetry videos caught my eye his poem my call for humanity and evokes a call to action for people everywhere to tap in to what it means to be human and like the content of the piece so much that i asked jamie to come on and perform it for you. so here i am standing alone in the open i'm here with a message hoping to repair what's broken nature is struggling humanity is not on track we've got a heads in the sand and i pride intact we seek fulfillment through wealth but do we achieve it we want prosperity through consumerism is it worth it how we actually found freedom or how we lost it because all we do is follow a system and never really challenge it can you relate to the always a will too blind to see are always seek the truth but kalman p. is thought of me i saw a different perspective and struggled by the hour show new ignorance was bliss but knowledge could give me power so now i call for humanity not just for one nation
2:36 pm
i'm opposing separation and standing up to segregation whether religious or atheist in essence with the same stereotypes a man made and it was man who created the game but we actually ready to accept this some wake up can we put our naivety on the line or are we always going to collide are we ready to make a difference do we venture into the unknown or do we stay not comfort zones and keep on taking the easy road. because it see it ships the safest it sure but no that's not what ships were made for so ask yourself this why are you really here you may find that deep but my question really is sincere from my generation we misled as a youth do we rub off on stupidest you to false misleading truth we prone to propaganda and we prone to falling information we talk to judge each other based on religion sex race culture class nation the list goes on. serous tunder start improving and it's time to start speakin because resources are
2:37 pm
lower in and poverty's increase in weed out cities to get larger buildings to get taller but trees to get shorter and fall is to get smaller we're an ingenious species we could easily change everything but were made to think different due to decades of conditioning we conformed to education to confirm our own security yes a biased institution that makes wisdom whole obscurity is actually correct and does actually judge intelligence or is it just listening to our elders and improving our obedience. a possessions an illusion of worth we tricked into thinking we trying to buy wholeness and we trying to buy meaning to they always give joy they distract us from reality they determine our density into the morality i mean what are our goals this really isn't a joke can happiness be superficial and i've seen a hoax to relive for the vong things lost of white things choke is mainstream t.v. to jail can it dictate our attractions does it actually bring us together or does
2:38 pm
it separate us into functions we categories each other virus social hierarchy the state is made by humans so who really are we it's ego destroying eco are the real problems discussed used do we really know the truth or does the society feed us lies we ask if in the voids and is money hold any true way could we drop our precious comforts to bring you up on it states it really is time to stop living our lives in shells because doing nothing for others is the undoing of us selves we're all from the same source so let's see if what it's worth we only have one home and that home is planet earth and your poetry you talk about neediness think out information in a world kind of a web of lies was there a particular moment for you when you realize that the government and media were lying to us. i guess there was no specific time in my life that really made me question things and it kind of happened over a long period of time. it was mainly when i was in education in school. question
2:39 pm
authority figures such as you know shooters and teachers and so i really question where they got their motives from and how they were teaching this and i don't know i guess that led me on to a lot of introspection in the sense that and that's what really made me question entirely walkers on this world maybe just what we've been fed you know so i feel like the government and the media portrays this false sense of reality in a lot of ways and there's a theme also that calls into question kind of consumerism and you're kind of urging people can we ever come away from consumers and why do you feel passionately about the need to do that i believe consumerism is i believe it's ok as long as you don't take it as a priority you know i believe materialism is ok as long as it's not piracy and i think the problem of consumerism is the kind of makes us forget that we're human beings most of the time we saw gives us labels and false identities that takes us away from my true nature and us i guess that's why i'm really trying to challenge or make people go but i will find a city that says that simplicity rather than focusing on materialism you know and
2:40 pm
things aren't necessarily natural from a human perspective you know you're from the u.k. a close u.s. ally to our war machine they're going to be partners in crime there. what what how do you feel about that partnership and kind of this overly militarized union of all these western powers well you know i like to see the world from the perspective as if i'm an alien you know i don't like to see is if. a human being living in a certain country i like to see everybody in the human race as my family. say in the you know british citizens my allies americans my allies you know i see everything humanity is my family is i don't believe. western countries actually have any authority over the middle eastern country i believe all equal that's what it comes down to the end of the day and like i always come to the question you know why was i born a british citizen i had no choice to be british i had no choice to be born western person so it's all luck so what i know about i asked the question middle eastern
2:41 pm
people and i always believed that the same as me so what difference really is that i couldn't agree more borders are meaningless what is a man made everything is man made these borders that we've heard you know we invent these divisions between us to really separate ourselves and the hubris that people have to think that we can go and invade other countries and tell them what's best for them yet only you know when they want to be. you know you perform the palm my call for humanity what would you say i guess if you could summarize what is that call. to wake up. to see life from another perspective i guess you know it's ok to question things it's ok to see life from another perspective and not the perspective the mainstream t.v. feeds down through you know there's a lot more to life than wall we're told and i guess i just really want people to see that because it's open the law things that for me and it's really made me like appreciate life and a lot more ways you know appreciate nature much more so stressed all the time i see life for what it is not that was the main call you know i want people to work
2:42 pm

2:43 pm
every year they would borrow money. and they would use that same amount of money to pay back their. money really. the wages of debts. and children on the news. close women use it is work. i have a dream about nice to have the. drones have not caused a huge number of civilian casualties. for the most part they have been very precise six flights. small body on the ground is a little girl and just next to her is a little boy of eight. we do

2:45 pm
live live. live . racial segregation of american public schools has been illegal since the one nine hundred fifty four supreme court case brown v board of education when the court
2:46 pm
unanimously declared that the notion of separate but equal was inherently on equal although the law wasn't fully in force until fourteen years later the landmark case was a crucial turning point reversing the centuries of institutionalized racism in this country but a disturbing new report released today by the department of education civil rights division paints a harrowing picture of the state of american public schools when it comes to race the report indicates that we might actually be regressing in the fight to provide an equal opportunity for success to all children the study was the first of its kind in nearly fifteen years and examined data from the ninety seven thousand or so public schools here in the u.s. some of the reports most disturbing conclusions include that black students are suspended or expelled out of three times the rate of white students furthermore while black students only make up eighteen percent of preschool in the woman nearly half of all preschool students who are suspended more than once are block the study also found that just over fifty percent of all black high school students attend
2:47 pm
schools before range of math and science courses such as algebra two and chemistry compared to seventy percent of white students black students are also four times as likely as white students to attend schools where one fifth of teachers don't meet state requirements latino students were three times as likely to attend these schools basically this means if you're a minority you're almost assured of a significantly lower quality education than caucasian students perhaps what's most disconcerting is that these stats only reveal a small picture of america's growing trend of school resegregation. see according to a two thousand and thirteen study published in the american sociological review the factors driving resegregation have grown increasingly stronger over the past few decades consider that nine hundred sixty eight in the year desegregation was fully enforced roughly seventy seven percent of black students and fifty five percent of latino students attended schools that were more than half minority populations but
2:48 pm
by two thousand and ten and seventy four percent of black students and eighty percent of latino students attended schools that were more than half minority with forty percent of those students attending schools that were ninety to one hundred percent minority so why is this a problem well because these segregated schools still remain incredibly unequal from their wider counterparts and everything from the experience of teachers to ballooning class sizes to inadequate facilities and teaching materials this type of complex and entrenched problem requires a radical new approach to federal education that instead we've largely seen the same tired approach coming out of this administration's education department obama initiatives like race at the top mostly repeated the mistakes of bush's no child left behind program these programs create competition for federal funds between schools based on standardized test scores and it here is to a set of academic standards known as common core not only do these types of
2:49 pm
programs put a limit on creativity and critical thinking but they've also been blasted by organizations like the n.w. c.p. for rewarding already high achieving schools and reinforcing the status quo when it comes to an equal schooling. listen it's far past time to abandon these one size fits all solutions to american education not only is the strategy stale and on imaginative but we now know that it's only recreating a crisis we supposedly solved sixty years ago. i always get harped on how much negative news i cover on the show because let's face it there's a ton of things report on most aren't all that great but today is friday so i think about the time to laugh and also to cover the most amazing technological advancements happening in the world today from the visible cloaks to remote control
2:50 pm
cockroaches science fiction has officially become reality and who better to break down all the insanity than my good friend and host of the moment of clarity web series lead canada's and sanity expert. course you are let's start off by talking about this amazing egg and we know how crazy the oil lobby is here we know the stranglehold it has on d.c. of course they've stifled the electric car for the last you know who killed the electric car they stifle this technology but they haven't stifled the test mokhtar electric car from being able to be produced driving across the country for free yeah there's no so you can you can drive across country for free with the tesla car but they're trying to stifle it they're doing their best i mean just the other day new jersey passed a law saying basically to be really difficult for tesla to sell their cars some something with chris christie usually easily although i don't know why they would be involved in backroom dealing but yeah they're trying it's really funny they're like they're like it's the only way we all we can only get energy from oil and gas everything else is not feasible right when not feasible i.b.m.'s new photovoltaics
2:51 pm
thermal system could power you're it's not feasible but there's like deep sea drilling give any idea how difficult it is their leg sticking the noodle of miles's i really how to do all of that just to have a monopoly on our energy resource it's insanely and they can also you know they can they can use real existing i can't speak existing infrastructure like parking lots and roads for solar i mean they can really revolutionize stuff fairly we're going to stop every subject again we can build the largest surveillance infrastructure the world has ever seen but we can't touch our interest rate. we can't like fix our infrastructure given electric infrastructure to do it we can't change our world that way but i love an island obama said of the finally climate change is huge issue but that's why we need fracking like one of the price crazy until we see little of records of billions of gallons of fresh water upon her down to our ground and contaminated but it's either gets repeated celie chevron explodes it's all
2:52 pm
about having a monopoly over a speaking of great solutions that are kind of being stifled by the corporatocracy right now let's look at the fact that marijuana is being recognized as a cure for cancer i mean lead there is this is just insane i mean it's a horrible i want you to put it in really quickly just explain this according to the molecular biologist christina sanchez on canvas planet cancer cells actually commit suicide after can and can't avoid it and i say that word right so. can i just say the expert not a scientist. t.h.c. actually switches off pathways that allows tumors to grow this is incredible it is getting more and more accepted but we can't allow that because if you allow me to sit on marijuana then it could cause like a run on toast. you know it could cause a spike in the cartoon network ratings abbie we can add that are right it would be a catastrophe. why not you know then we can then we can print our own food and then
2:53 pm
eat it after we get to the manager and just all you know we're going to bring the food which brings me to three d. printing i mean really three d. printing could revolutionize production manufacturing democratise so many things as if it's not mind blowing enough the fact that lasers can print things from the bottom up organs i mean for god's sake until twenty forty i mean how many people die every day on an organ donor list they will not have to any more lee they're going to get organs and they're very very close to organs which means just around the corner printing babies it's gonna be right there on the court which then brings there's this interesting. ethical questions abbi as to like can you hack into a friend's computer and just print him baby and you have to know you well he's not a little old like ten babies and he's like it's not funny all right men do. you know this is an interesting ethical question did let's hope that they don't start cloning and printing babies are i mean i was crazy i mean i think in print organs
2:54 pm
you know we would help here's the thing if we allow this technology to go out to the masses rather than just be like something rich people have access to printing the word and i think it could save lives it could change the world but the problem is that you end up with corporations having a stranglehold all right well i think that you know like computers people people will be one step ahead of the corporations in terms of the hacking and be able to make their own three d. printer and stuff like that let's hope so let's talk about a little bit of a disturbing story the fact that humans can implant leaves into cockroaches. apparently control their movements by remote control or an i phone app but we are even know what to say other than the fact that it's just really now control cockroaches but with an i phone which is interesting because our i phones kind of controlling us we think we're controlling the congress but really how many people are able to detach from their i phone so i think we're on knowingly we're controlling ourselves at that video i saw us i thought it was over i'm going to a cockroach that is actually congress and that i can stroll or that's exxon mobile
2:55 pm
so. i thought it was the cockroach or congress has a lower popularity than cockroaches that's disgusting and vile as cockroaches are that says a lot for congress maybe we can remote control congress and actually do the bidding of their constituents i would be very nice if i could just implant some leads because most of there are they already look like they're just being kind of robotic we controlled anyway with the lobbyists you know let's talk about probably the most amazing technology i have seen i mean other than three d. printing this is just absurd straight up harry potter style invisible. time what in the hell they i don't even understand it correctly this is the department of electrical and computer engineering the university of toronto has created a cloak adaptive to different objects and sizes not full fledged invisibility yet but that's a way from being harry potter i mean going on how it's going to affect society whenever we're going to be on an invisibility cloak and of course whenever
2:56 pm
something like this comes in it's immediately like the military is often behind it and they want to use it for all kinds of like death and destruction or spying you know things like that but i think it could be used for good you know it could be used for just wonderful things like watching people in the shower. and wrap it around karl rove so no one has to look at them anymore or or watching people in the shower there's that one true love in the sense that all we see whatever you mention of his ability people always like i want people like is that really that great if it all yourself narcissistic world most people would just volunteer to be watched in the shower nowadays outside this building a guy just offered to me it was a drug or whatnot so i don't know why that i would want to shower yes i here's what i don't know why that's what people are. hiding him more than the shower thing so we can print organs while wearing an invisibility cloak and have cockroaches make our dinner how in the hell is this going to change the world and how it's going to change the way we live and wonder which i actually do think it's the potential of
2:57 pm
humankind right now it's huge it's bigger than it's ever been the question is whether we can focus on achieving that or whether we continue to be lost in like this vapor a cloud of vapid nothingness you know these distractions and subtle will rouse all of screen flashes and car crashes whether we can look past that and actually progress as a species that's the question that is the end all question let's hope for god's sake let's hope that it's ok for the latter or the former whatever you said you can't thank so much man thank you if. you guys that's our show have a great weekend and join me next week when i break the set over again. just. twisted us a. little it tastes. better results.
2:58 pm
well come to the tron siberian. what are the places you never go to. the fun you never had. things you never do. experience you'll never get. the surprise you will. speak your language i mean some of the will not advance. news programs and documentaries and spanish more matters to you breaking news
2:59 pm
a little tonnage of angola's kidneys stories. here. to try to alter the spanish find out more visit eye to eye on tivo it's calm. we wanted to create a realistic mobile that would represent life that would depicts a life as it really is. there's an. awful the whole thing is a. thousands
3:00 pm
of converge from madrid from all across spain as people played by unemployment and austerity struggle to make their voices heard. in ukraine's eastern city of donetsk as pro russian protesters take to the streets in defiance of the new leadership in kiev. and even. that it's votes to break away from italy and an unofficial referendum with a local saying that fed up with billions in taxes for the capital. not for money said to hear most of this is r.t. international with the twenty four hours a day in spain the so-called march of dignity has seen thousands of protesters from
3:01 pm
different regions walking hundreds of kilometers to the capital madrid many say the physical exhaustion has been nothing compared to the strain placed on them by continued mass unemployment and ongoing spending cuts of course when you go to is in madrid for us. after nearly two weeks of walking by foot coming from all across been covering hundreds of kilometers in the rain and under the sun thousands of protesters to finally reach their destination the spanish capital and now men and women those with jobs and those without pension years and the youth of all gathered in the center of madrid to make their message heard. we are the most skilled generation but we cannot find a proper job so we have to change everything change the political system for real not just cosmetic measures i hope that the government acknowledges the situation the people are not with them even if they have an absolute majority the people are not happy with their policies and reforms it is
3:02 pm
a step backward sexually to the years before fascism before one thousand nine hundred thirty six even during the franco dictatorship the political and social situation in this country wasn't that bad the spanish economy has been going through severe problems and so far the authorities have given a little signs of any concrete positive changes unemployment is around twenty six percent which means that the only other even member states where the situation is worse in that sense is greece there's a huge gap between the wealthy and the poor the youth unemployment there stands around fifty percent and many of those who got a higher education in spain are now forced to leave the country in search for a better life elsewhere for jobs and better salaries the troika of international creditors and brussels have been demanding more job cuts more evictions more austerity measures which is only aggravating the situation and making these people
3:03 pm
even more angry about this whole problems while there are also reports that around two million families in spain now heavily depend on state pensions food banks and other benefits. of the news now we're about to see pictures from our. side an air base near the crimean city of sevastopol home to russia's black sea fleet while it's still controlled by ukrainian forces in the crimean military is calling on them to surrender local officials say ukraine has blocked the border with crimea preventing people including ukrainian forces from leaving the peninsula crimean authorities say it is a provocation or another crime has officially become part of russia ukrainian forces stationed there have been offered the chance to take russian citizenship and join the local military or leave but for those crimean serving in ukraine it looks like a struggle for them to return home. every day she says to me mom we're on high alert they're preparing us for transfer and i asked him how much longer they have to say
3:04 pm
he says they're not saying where been kept in the dark while our children are their guardian military equipment fully armed for combat my son calls me and tells me that they are not being sad some rice and a piece of bread and see that sell food they're getting every day. and eastern ukraine is being rocked by protests against the new leadership in kiev with many raising the alarm over the rise of neo nazi groups crowds are running in the city at the net bell that charging russia and some of the money a referendum a possible session from ukraine brought to deal is there for r.t. . i'm here in donetsk where again thousands of people have demonstrated on the streets said this time in support of a president victory on a coverage who was ousted by the composed government in kiev thousands of people gathered on the square and eventually marched on the huge administrative building where there are demanding the referendum that they've been calling for for a number of weeks now so after we saw the referendum on sunday a sea crimea join the russian federation this week it seems the people in donetsk have taken inspiration from this and demanding
3:05 pm
a referendum of their own to bring them closer to russia because those are people who are saying that they did not choose the authorities in kiev but also that the authorities in kiev don't seem to be listening to what's what they've been trying to say for a number of weeks now and here in the east of the country where you notice you do it was ukraine russia and bella reuss we are brothers we want to be together and not divided and told how we should live and what we should do by the e.u. and america you know would you let's again call vision is a legitimate president we are against the interim self-proclaimed leaders who grabbed power let me explain you solicit that no one is listening to us who don't have a leader to help us achieve what we want so far and what we want is freedom and not to feel for our children and our future. and the demands don't seem to be based on being pro russian but also seem to be based on economic reasons as well and they think that moves closer to russia would be more beneficial to the region than a move to authorities in kiev it seems to be moving closer to the e.u. . scene like we've just seen in the nets in many other eastern regions protesters
3:06 pm
have been taking to the streets there as well saying they're making a stand against the neo nazi leanings of the interim government while the far right gaining influence in ukraine is not the main issue for european leaders who are now focused on piling more pressure on moscow over crimea he is planning to cut its reliance on russian gas after slapping further sanctions on the country or will it balance and he's a former british diplomat and professor at the greek state university believes not all voices within the european union sound the same when it comes to sanctions there is a disagreement behind the scenes between countries like bugg area and even germany about how far these sanctions will go because a lot of the important economic sectors in some european countries actually are beginning to depend especially in the energy sector on their cooperation with russia so i think it's more a question of the perks political egos because of the complete success of what
3:07 pm
russia has done the threats are surprisingly unspecific actually know that a lot of large companies do not agree with these threats including boeing for example from the united states including chevron so. while russia is being blamed for addicks in crimea and escalating international tensions despite the fact the referendum was actually the initiative of the local parliament maritime security professor and acclaimed russian historian professor chris bellamy believes the vote was fair and transparent. the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the ukrainian government or interim government point of view on this i was watching that referendum last week and very intently and it seemed to be very well organized very calm and it certainly was not so as david cameron said to the power of the of a gun in
3:08 pm
a way even though some crimean tartars and ukrainians boycotted it nevertheless it was a clear statement that the majority of people in crimea wanted to turn to the russian federation which the way they had been until nine hundred fifty four . washington the study by ukraine's former opposition of the supporting its rise to power and while the up people has been hailed as a victory for democracy crime is voted self-determination is being dismissed as illegal does a check and a look at how the u.s. backed regime change played out. exporting chaos and to the world promoter of the right to self-determination and other high principles the us we are long as the days when the international community will stand quietly by while one country forcibly seizes the territory over another incidentally behind this noble statement is the number one med learn internal affairs of other nations an example of what is
3:09 pm
known as the arab spring is. said of destruction achieving political purposes throw having full fire destroyed and found the country that when the term regime change promoting unrest wherever on the globe serves its interests latin america has been a major target of the us over the years and. we have examples of outside intrusion and the internal politics of states like mexico guatemala panama nicaragua haiti dominican republic and grenada repeated attempts of a coup in venezuela argentina brazil ecuador and believing that there was no coup in the one hundred fifty year old history of latin america that the u.s. government did not apply its. coincidentally u.s. participation in events in ukraine did not begin or end in distributing snacks or friendly gestures of support i've invested over five billion dollars to assist
3:10 pm
ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic saying the west spent five billion dollars the stabilizing ukraine this is something that is a a mess that is foot on russia's doorstep by the west before it can have protests turned into chaos russia proposed that ukraine work with both the e.u. and russia the u.s. had another idea wanting to see ukraine as part of its ally the e.u. read to eventually find its way into nato there is no other path that would bring ukraine back to longer. political stability and economic a popular joke among american leaders why will there never be a coup in the u.s. because there is no u.s. embassy in washington freedom sovereignty and international law all terms repeated like a mantra by u.s. officials but with a handful of examples of the u.s. attempting to property or other parts of the world that joke is not so far from
3:11 pm
reality and party washington d.c. . c.n.n. anchor christiane amanpour has singled out russian officials including a reporter that the stars is full of a chicken he's the country's ever voice of the u.n. and she blasted him for refusing to give comments being afraid of tough questions. how people like churkin feel they don't need have to leave their comfort zone choke and own daughter is the us based reporter for russia today in new york she's shown here quizzing u.s. state department spokesman jen psaki over this whole ukraine crisis and in the past she's even reported on her own father. well the russian ambassador has already issued his response to the criticism highlighting the poor zone curious family links and also say he's used to tough questions and accusations and we've been consistently speaking out at the security council for years but what you don't call for more details of this ongoing red. hot international larger moscow still ahead
3:12 pm
for you this hour while british universities are watching their rise and students are being exposed to strict surveillance. we all trained up and we have a passion to be lecturers or to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents but the u.k. government seems to view the education process a little bit differently stay with us to find out which home office policies are outraging the british academic and the. well come to the trunk siberian. what are the places you never go to. fun. things you never do. experience
3:13 pm
you'll never again. be surprised. speak your language. programs documentaries in arabic it's all here on. reporting from the world talks about six of the ip interviews intriguing story. arabic to find out visit arabic. nations have voted overwhelmingly for their own sovereign state in a referendum on independence from italy inspired by rising european separatist
3:14 pm
ambitions eighty nine percent of residents from the floating city said yes to breaking away from rome's control in an unofficial ballot that means as many as two million people want to see the region and the self rule let's get more now from professor of history. he joins me live professor i understand that you are one of the authors of this independence bid. what prompted you to want venice to leave rome what's the problem. well basically i am a classical liberal and very much in favor of the creation of little. really low taxation on the free market the violence of the day and banning says pretty much as we learned of benetton the. triangle. is sure. is well above sixty per cent and seventy percent so is the one of the strongest fiscal preciously in the war and by creating
3:15 pm
a new lease on the fish and stayed we would use the physical pleasure on the citizens and the second time in the story i'm very happy we regain your original independence of the republic and we end this which was a beacon for all your b.s. it is asian and you seventy nine hundred seven when. the laws basically you are now and the buying up on the law there are two reasons so we gain the region are our dependence. and at the same time our create a little state to evolve and very flexible on the state of the sun in certain sense that a fellow us the we have a lot of autonomous for the local. ok let's let's look at some statistics here ask you the next question we we have here on screen the fact that they chose one of the most populous regions of italy with eight percent of the population there is also one of the richest provinces accounted for ten percent of national g.d.p.
3:16 pm

3:17 pm
a very interesting time doesn't it bearing in mind crimea through referendum has now become part no our side you think what i mean we happened there. what happened there in crimea was that encouraged to think of the separatist movements now throughout the well yes absolutely yes i mean up people looking for the season i'll start with the nation we're looking go back and try not. to draw in the rush and they decide they overwhelmingly it was going well. and i think. the principle and so the nation evolves and we have been growing much in college by vehicle i mean. what's happening crimea is really grab the world headlines doesn't it but nobody's really talking much about venice at the moment and yet it's very close to the heart of europe isn't it it's an extraordinary day got a little while what was that this was a well something on this back to the referendum for scotland implantable that he won well you know nor there is a plan to work for in. the form of the man who in the rules and values we're
3:18 pm
going to have things. why in short time around so. there's a reason why there was no preparation you look to fade. you know we have the same times likely. all those often and not binding because in fact as in not all going on by nice if you should be organizers by. people. minus factor not all of us have and organize a bunch of minutes and we don't know which isn't the. professor of history palo but it in effect you very much indeed for your thoughts good to have you. could see thank you well it's such a know what our team has lined up for you on our website stories there including at the moment avoiding the n.s.a. is seeing i google is about to launch in hans in christian technology to make its email service sleep proof home for more details on that plus. the spot
3:19 pm
the pullout of u.s. troops from afghanistan washington keeps pumping billions of cash into the country's reconstruction the taxpayers' money appears to be flowing into the wrong hands for more help the corruption has been exposed to what's. right to see. her street. and i think the church. orders. and struggle. to be in the. classrooms are a space for open dialogue and not check points that's the message lectures from the u.k.'s most renowned universities are trying to make clear to the government in an open letter published in the guardian newspaper they say they are being forced to share their students' immigration records with the home office or he's pretty boy
3:20 pm
who went to talk to the academics who've spoken out against the policy. the british government wants to stop student visas being abused but the way that the border force is going about it has rubbed a number of universities up the wrong way over one hundred sixty academics from universities such as oxford and warrick have written a letter to the guardian newspaper saying that they are under increasing pressure to check the immigration details of their students well to talk about this in more detail i'm joined by one of the signatories of that letter professor desert friedman from goldsmiths university of london professor friedman thank you very much for joining us tell me what is it that u.k. visas and immigration are forcing universities and professors like yourself to do they want stringent monetary requirements on international students and we feel this is just simply discriminate sharee we feel that it's not really part of our jobs we are trained up and we have
3:21 pm
a passion to be lecturers or to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents but it's no secret that getting a student visa was in a tourist easy way for someone who had absolutely no intention of studying to obtain a visa to come to the u.k. what's wrong with the u.k. border agency checking that students really are studying if they really do want to clamp down on the abuses where they do take place that has to be in those countries where the visas are sold and not to try to get academics or support staff to do jobs which they are not trained and have very little interest in doing on the one hand we've got this reduction of immigration to the u.k. that the government says it wants to achieve the other hand you've had slashed budgets for universities and an increase in tuition fees so where does that leave universities right now universities are dependent increasingly on the income of international students and in their own self preservation you would think they would be lobbying incredibly hard inside government to say that this is on the
3:22 pm
except to work and discriminate for me this should be a pastoral relationship. i do not want to treat my international student any differently from my home and e.u. students professor friedman thank you very much for your comments while the home office whose job it is to check that foreigners are in the u.k. legally they've defended their reforms they say that the process is now more robust and less open to abuse reporting from london. board to national news stories in brief now israeli forces have killed three palestinians in a gunfight in the occupied west bank incident happened during a raid on the house of a fugitive her mass member wanted by israel for a village in baldwin to terror attacks by supporters carried the bodies through the streets shouting slogans against the palestinian president is involved in u.s. brokered peace talks with israel tensions are currently running high ahead of a deadline to set a framework to advance the already faltering negotiations. of the
3:23 pm
supporters of the. around a thousand supporters of the far right golden dawn party a stage a rally called greece for greeks protesters chanted slogans against the current prime minister and state controlled media which comes ahead of upcoming local and general elections in may greece's government has recently cracked down on the rising right shushing the openly fascist party which was connected to the killing of an anti rightwing rapper in the past. one of the most secure locations in libya tripoli's international airport has been bombed explosives were detonated on the runway although there were no casualties it's the latest attack in the country which has appealed for international help to combat what it calls terrorism militias running rampant and taken over eastern oil fields. in southwest pakistan the collision between a petrol tanker and two passenger buses has killed at least thirty five people with many victims. all the vehicles burst into flames just moments after the crash
3:24 pm
because the buses were also transporting gas and diesel canisters on their roofs in the city buses. operating in areas close to the iranian border reportedly often involved in the illegal smuggling of iranian fuel. a week before local elections the turkish prime minister has vowed to wipe out twitter as a method of avoiding further unrest but the social network has exploded in response the number of tweets from turkey reportedly rose one hundred thirty eight percent with a balance that says users found easy ways to bypass the band that had blasted the move with mocking pictures protests to say by attacking the social sites authorities are simply trying to sweep corruption scandals under the carpet i.b.m. as a kiwi have the pan-african newswire believes it's only going to leave a bitter aftertaste it's connected with the upcoming elections both local and national weather and turkey of course there's been a huge amount of attention surrounding a corruption scandal involving prime minister erdogan and then of course there has
3:25 pm
been the response from many people of course who are concerned about this even people within the turkish government itself even our president. reportedly had tweeted himself distancing himself from the prime minister so i think it's a combination of factors that are political but i think it's in the long term that's going to backfire on the. party has quite interesting you know when we have these types of undemocratic actions and proclamations coming out of countries that have good relations with the united states or you don't get the kind of response that you would see in other countries for example restrictions that have been placed in syria or in the republic of sudan or in zimbabwe or even in washington terms of the recent developments surrounding ukraine in crimea. i'll be back with
3:26 pm
a news team with wolf in just over half and half and i mean time because a report is next next and stacy we're discussing the latest budget announcement in the u.k. that's got bingo players in the money even if they don't win itself to the brain. residents of sunnyvale california are being forced to turn in any magazines that they have that hold over ten rounds to the government anyone caught with a high capacity magazine one thousand dollars fine or up to six months in jail or both maybe you personally don't want guns to be legal but there are many people in this world who feel it is their right to have them but the question is how many people are actually willing to stick up for that right it is easy for schmucks like
3:27 pm
me on t.v. to tell you to go fight for your rights but when they're thought cops at your door and black uniforms or a crack your skull in all forms a sense a tiny metal box of the spring in it many people are going to give in and give it up and actually take an incredible amount of bravery to knowingly defy the law based on principle and that is why very few people do it and that is why over time in any society your rights freedoms are every want to call them are going to be eroded away tyranny happens because people like you and me are willing to pay a thousand dollars for our rights but that's just my opinion.
3:28 pm
welcome to the kaiser report i'm max kaiser it was u.k. budget week and bingo big news for bingo players the chancellor have the tax on bingo profits to present in bingo lingo this would be a jump and john have dripper drawers to little ducks crack cracker comes to her beat. yes on the poster that accompany this because the conservatives are very proud of their having of the bingo profits and actually a one p. reduction on a pint of beer so the poster reads bingo cutting the bingo tax and beer duty to help hardworking people do more of the things they enjoy the chances of the cut was prompted by the fact that the number of bingo halls had plummeted by three quarters
3:29 pm
over the last thirty years. maybe has something to do with like modern media the internet games things to do that are better than playing bingo that's true said he would be so fascinated with bingo that the number of bingo halls is diminishing so he's going to cut the profits on the bingo profits to resuscitate the bingo business this would seem like a misplaced use of taxpayer money somehow oh well actually the biggest bingo operator said they're going to open three new big all the while this is just failing to resuscitate what is a con to be a more a bond with excessive debt due to speculation and mis placed bets along the way and so therefore bingo itself would seem to be the last place one would want to put that money makes me think that they haven't encountered a working class person since maybe the one nine hundred fifty s. but it's also important mbanga lingo to when you shout out the numbers to get the
3:30 pm
numbers right because you don't want to call out the wrong. and then the wrong person thinks they want so i wanted to look at the importance of numbers over in the united states this week there was also another important announcement here here in the u.k. at the budget twenty fourteen and the i say said janet yellen first ever press conference stocks tumble after yellen says six months during the q. and a of a press conference wednesday afternoon janet yellen said the fed could start raising interest rates as soon as six months after it was done winding down its stimulative quantitative easing program this was a much narrower time frame than expected now i'm still thinking about this being a thing you know i think i got it now the tories the tough power basically their perception of the working class there in britain are people buying beers and playing bingo that's the perception of the working cluster to piece these folks they're getting the p.r. off on the beer and give some on an industry that's in decline bingo but this is
3:31 pm
their perception this is what they this is a love of the looking glass mosquito little boost they have now actual connection to what people might be doing on the working side of the equation that would support the economy that they are so egregiously ripping off the day to day they smarter and folks but moving forward janet yellen yes she has indicated that the potential for raising interest rates would be you know six months after that and quantitative easing so she's putting a date on when the free money the bingo profits are being cut to the speculators on wall street the city of london and of course stocks move down on the news but this is the the pot to do that we see going on between reality and fantasy is that every time i talk about raising interest rates of course markets will drop and then they will keep rates low so for the foreseeable future as long as it's possible to crash markets then traits will be cheap to make it easier to crash markets yes i mean
3:32 pm
regarding the. even the big go association said it's going to have no money in the pocket effect for the actual bingo players so there won't actually be what with like it's a forty million pound industry who knows it's like not it's like pocket change it's not a very huge industry here and in terms of the american bingo you know actually their taxes are about the same as what the bingo was as a twenty percent capital gains but she should have used this term instead of six months she should have said chopsticks which is the bingo lingo when somebody said that would have been more musing but also would it confuse because remember everybody likes fed speak which is very similar to bingo lingo it's like alan greenspan is the one that mastered this where he would just speak total nonsense and the markets would be very happy with that they would say calm yeah i think the janet yellen should be running a bingo shop in britain somewhere maybe in blackpool there would be janet yellen would like a turban on talking about this being go lingo kind of way indicating to the people
3:33 pm
on the bankers on the speculators in the fraudsters out there in the audience try to line up their collateralized debt obligation with free money from the graph from moments with market losers j.p. morgan. so basically they got rid of forward guidance they did it here as well and they well forward quantitative guidance they've now adopted a new term of qualitative guidance so they have i mean stocks take dive after fed moves so investors were trying to come to grips with this new phrase of qualitative guidance what was it means and the fed did away with profits prior guidance which was quantitative threshold based on the nation's jobless rate the fed had been using a six point five percent unemployment rate as its threshold to start the process or at least kick off the debate about raising rates however with the jobless rate at six point seven percent and the rate itself viewed as a flawed measure of the actual health of the job market the fed opted to phase out the numerical threshold so it's called qualitative guidance. well the markets are
3:34 pm
addicted to cheap money and you know the fed under to let a greenspan enter bernanke they would lower interest rates in response to various crises and they have not yet moved to raise those rates to restore balance to these markets to restore the risk and reward balance because right now if you are on the right side of the apartheid wall the interest rate apartheid wall you can make unlimited amounts of money with no risk if you're on the other side of the interest rate apartheid wall then you absorb all the risk and your ability to make any kind of substantial money is curtailed and you are living in the interest rate engineer ghetto so the language from janet yellen is a language of the obvious skater yes the federal reserve chairman always uses very obvious skating language to hide exact they don't want to telegraph to the market what they're doing because they don't want to give traders an unfair advantage however under forward guidance they did telegraph to the market saying yeah we're
3:35 pm
going to make money as cheap as possible so you can speculate all day and take all the money out of the economy you want we don't care because we don't need the workers we just print the money we don't have the taxes so now they're changing the language somewhat but at the end of the day what it means is that janet yellen will retire as a bingo mistress probably a dominate tricks somewhere at a so hoping go parlor and that the way she'll end her days but it also shows as well that why you adopt this bingo lingo instead of saying six you say chopping sticks because you know six is a real number people can you know grab onto it and prove you're wrong or you know you say tickettyboo or could hear the click and these are like more comforting to the markets now how they did adopting this qualitative number for example so that they're no longer looking at the actual real on unemployment number because of course those are fake anyway those are might as well be bingo lingo so they said a wide range of information will now be included such as measures of labor market
3:36 pm
conditions indicators of inflation. rashers and inflation expectations and readings on financial developments i could get a click tickettyboo makes no sense. george osborne's budget speech they don't mention the fact that the debt is going to be higher this year than ever before and all continued to go higher inclusive of all back to you case never been more in debt so yeah they can play around with semantics they can point to different areas of economy they can give people a bingo tax break but the fact is that the indebtedness of the country is ever increasing because they're doing nothing to get rid of the worst actors that are the zombie banks that are sucking all this money from the bank of england and from these other countries and from these other institutions and the austerity that's being imposed is only there to inflict cruelty there's no economic basis for it in fact if you want to look at this next headline and chart that comes with that this is i think why ultimately they will never be able to raise raise rates again the most important economic chart and this is productivity per output per hour that's
3:37 pm
the blue line and the red line is median family real income the chart shows that productivity are output per hour of work has quadrupled since one thousand nine hundred seven in the united states they gave them productivity work quite widely shared to one hundred forty seven to one nine hundred eighty when as you can see from the chart the red line there the income from the median family declined to climb to climb while productivity rose of course max in one nine hundred eighty what you think of is that the peak of gold and paul volcker basically coming in with interest rates and basically convincing the world to go off the gold standard and that the dollar is king and it's good as good as gold and however from that point you see that the average worker's income declined. right some productivity gains were shared in that purchasing power was maintained so that you would work more and you could buy more stuff with a dollar that was tied to something tangible now starting in one nine hundred
3:38 pm
eighty nine hundred seventy one actually and then moving forward into the eighty's when the purchasing power started to collapse but the equation of hours work for pay didn't change then you could say well productivity is robust or not robust but the fact is you could not afford to buy the same amount of stuff as you could at the end of the week or the month as you could before meanwhile the asset prices that are owned by those who are engineering this divorced from gold into of see out the assets they don't like the fine art and. shut in france and london real estate continue to go up in value exponentially so and once again you create this apartheid economic apartheid using productivity in a soul aisha's matter of that makes no sense with an underlying economic going to standing about how the business climate works you miss quote g.d.p. you cook c.p.i. and you present as osborne does or as somebody in the united states does
3:39 pm
a completely false picture of the economy to benefit the few to at the expense of the rest of the spending going on for twenty years is getting worse but it's also that dichotomy the difference between say bingo bingo fed speak so bankers and the financial trying natural sort of experts know the real number they know like stop farting eighty three. stop farting is eighty three you can go let go you're supposed to call back who me. i got to get down to the bingo parlor because i'm missing out on some very interesting things but you know the productivity number was going up while you know the average worker is being distracted by the fed speak the bingo lingo and they don't realize that their income was going down because they're distracted by different number. or is that that the likes of janet yellen are saying like we're going to use qualitative instead of quantitative productivity the number increase is there more people working more hours for the same especially
3:40 pm
so there's i hope productivity is going up you know the most productive work environment of all is prison people who are essentially working there all day for twenty cents a day they're most productive citizens in the u.k. in america are the prison population by the way who has the biggest prison population of the world the u.s. who's building private prisons now at a furious pace or will about about to do you can say because of prison business is a profit business everyone in the prison is the most productive members of society when they work all day for twenty cents look at the productivity we're getting out of these prisoners were fantastic financial engineers. oh maybe all right stacy we got to go thanks i'm going to but it's actually it all right said davis i can have all of our. rights on the scene. first for you and i think you're.
3:41 pm
on our reporters but. instead. to be in the know. how. do we speak your language i mean some of the will not advance. news programs and documentaries and spanish more matters to you breaking news a little turn to angles the stories. you hear. that all teach spanish find out more visit. to the. science technology innovation.
3:42 pm

3:44 pm
one can be more wonderful than this the whole thing is a mile. told me my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports from so i'm like. you know i will leave that to the state department to comment on your minor point. to secure a car is on the docket. no more weasel words. when you direct question me prepared for a change when you run. for a. freedom of speech little down the freedom to watch. welcome back to the kaiser report i max kaiser time out of turn to gun ban grier's
3:45 pm
managing director of matter heart asset management and you got a welcome to the kaiser thank you great to be here all right you got just. from janet yellen and the fed there's always a tension connection between what she says of the price of gold which of course is their specialty maybe just open us up a little bit by talking a little bit on this yes well. you know janet yellen is not going to change anything from what you did i mean they are the biggest money creators in the world the fed and they will continue to do so ok short term so she had to continue with tapering but that won't last. and actually you know the influence of the fed announcement on gold the last six arms back and seen gold goes down every time and often quite substantially around spread announcement and then in the last few months is going up back up every time again so it's a good trade going short before the fed announcement as then buying back again ok
3:46 pm
you just said something there you said that tapering won't last now just to give remind people a tapering is i mean the quantitative easing was this idea of the fed buying back all these bonds and thankfully monetizing the debt now this has gone on for a while people are asking what are you going to get out of this quantitative easing and the word used is taper by they're buying less on a monthly basis but they're saying that they're possibly going to stop quantitative easing and she said within six months after that interest rates go higher you're saying no taper tapering absolutely not talk a little bit about this well the fed lives in a dream world you know they believe that like a president that the u.s. economy is booming and that things are going to get only better won't happen the u.s. economy is bankrupt it will continue to be bankrupt the need to issue unlimited amounts of money to survive those are you of course printing money will never create wealth
3:47 pm
so they won't survive that are that they will just kick the can down the road so the fed will continue to print money that might be tapering from for another couple of months but that often it will be events that will knesset necessitate the fed. printing money at an accelerated rate in my view how would you compare to say what's going on in the sat united states and the bank of england here in the u.k. obviously they have a new chairman mark carney they've come out with their recent budget discussions it appears that with programs like the help to buy scheme which is a well to underwrite the real estate market like the fannie mae in america it's very similar to the us. very similar eight zero yemen there are two areas of the u.k. economy there are booming one is behind us here in the city everyone is rich in the city because if you have money you can make money because everybody every central bank in the world helps you to print money and therefore to trade with money and to
3:48 pm
make very nice returns on the money. and the other market which is prospering is the housing market you cannot have an economy based on finance and on people buying houses especially now with no money down and subsidized interest rates so the u. k. consumer is boring the u.s. talk the housing market is booming that won't last are there ok you got basically if correct me if i'm wrong but over there matt hart asset management and switzerland the firm that you run they are the chairman of the goal in wealth preservation and the medium for this is gold gold not necessarily for trade gold and as a in investment gold as wealth preservation what does that mean talk a little bit about that yeah well we decided already twelve years ago in two thousand and two that the world was going to be in a mess and that he was absolutely essential to preserve wealth so we told our
3:49 pm
clients that to put we even set up to fifty percent of their. financial assets into the physical gold and so that's a very let's say aggressive recommendation because typically people would say put five percent of all but your firm back when gold was a two fifty three how can i be on a three hundred fifty percent so obviously everybody didn't put fifty percent in we have clients who have hundred percent in gold almost and we have clients five a ten so but nevertheless we saw that the destruction of paper money was going to accelerate so he was for us you buy. something when it's on loved and on devalued and at that time gold was both on love an undervote is pretty easy now. wool as they have done throughout history continue to do straw the value of paper money by printing printing on limited amounts of it and so they have been doing
3:50 pm
still doing it. during his period as chairman of the fed he the debt of the united states of america went from eight trillion to seventeen trillion so he created more debt in that in his seven years than than it took the us of to create for over two hundred years they went from zero to a trillion over two hundred years and he created a trillion in just over seven years that will continue yellow will continue as the column do anything else and i want to run in deficit budget deficits run budget deficits for over fifty years there it run running trade deficits for for the same period right and it seems like everything is tied to this idea of interest rates being near zero for in perpetuity which is which is kind of a crazy bet but before i talk about interest rates i wanted to throw something out at you and see what your responses basically people talk about the price of gold and they fixate on oh it's nine hundred it's fifteen hundred thirteen hundred and
3:51 pm
they really focus on price i want to introduce this concept price versus availability the idea here is that when the time comes when you really need your gold because of the banking system collapse from all the shenanigans there might not be gold available for you at any price if you you know i'm getting at and i know if there's issues in switzerland and around the world people are going to collect their gold from the bank and your service by the way is not a bank it's a vault big difference and there's not there so here's my topic price versus availability. take it away well you know that the paper market in gold is about one hundred times the physical market we live in a paper world today everybody believes in paper but sadly the paper gold holders will not get any gold and and when the problem starts in the economy when they will do and people start worrying about the fact that the bullion banks have
3:52 pm
no gold the central banks don't have anywhere near the gold they say they have and people start saying i want delivery they won't get gold they'll get money maybe if they're lucky and comix will know won't be able to deliver either the futures market were totally in banks h.s.b.c. j.p. morgan correct and others they're saying they don't have the gall to say they have x. x. x. they don't have the gold on the central bank certainly don't have the gold they said they supposed thirty thousand pounds i don't think they have off even less i mean every everybody in the gold market knows that the fed has not had an audit since eisenhower's days of their gold and it's in asia. it's in asia because what happened especially when gold fell last year which is i'm sure you've been through this before when gold fell last year this is manipulated the fall of the gold price so that the bullion banks could fill up their holes what happened instead is that because normally everything that wm banks when they've bought buy and sell the
3:53 pm
gold stays with them the bond the seller is will those with them central banks you know the a.t.f. that cetera as it happened now all. the chinese bought all the goal of actually it became available and russia and russia let me have this quick political front it seems like on the geo political equation you've got now russia china are kind of signing up against well and that will call them the oil and gold and gas powers versus the paper powers of the u.s. the u.k. on that other side so it's gold versus paper and this currency war as you could call it. over the last few years during the price fall china and russia have been aggressively buying gold are they now in a position where they can reject the u.s. dollar as global reserve currency and strike out on their own and is that part of what we're seeing in these global tensions absolutely in my view among the dollar
3:54 pm
does not do so to be there is so the world sadly you know coming from switzerland when i started working in switzerland a long time ago one hundred seventy nine to seventy roughly the swiss franc to the dollar it was one dollar for swiss francs thirty today it's about eighty eight cents that's a full of eighty percent and only in the last twelve years the dollar has gone down fifty percent against this was frank. the dollar is on the road to perdition sadly sadly but it's you know you cannot run all these deficits that i just mentioned and consistently overspend and spend what you don't have in print money and at the same time be there is the currency of the world so yes the dollar is on its way now i'm trying to support it at various points but the dollar is on his way now to crash all currencies of course are going down to their intrinsic value of zero but the
3:55 pm
dollar will be the first one. so i believe is only a matter of time before us you say china russia set up personally the the wonderful weapon that russia has now is just to stop using dollars altogether in the ukraine and crimea battle here and of course that will hurt the us more than anything else so never mind all the sanctions that try to trying to part of a currency wars so you're saying that in a currency war a listen let's call it big poker game russia china are holding three aces in their gold and the u.s. has got a pair of twos absolutely especially because they have a very weak currency that you know that is overvalued because the whole world is trading in it but once they stop trading in china and russia will be the first countries to stop trading and in the doing a lot of bilateral deals now yeah already brazil other britain nations a lot of high lateral deals i want to talk about this idea of manipulation for
3:56 pm
a second because it's a contentious topic but one area that we know without a doubt we see the manipulation happening and that is when we see it almost every single day the price of gold in asia is up overnight because people in asia are buying gold you know they realize this paper money empires about the collapse and then when the price it's new york it's called max you see a big dump every single day on it to me that's a clear sign of manipulation the stock price discoveries price manipulation you know your thoughts you know this call. instant prize manipulation and especially you can see it happening because always in the thin market you know the trades are always crazy no one would dump the amount of gold that were in this case paper gold of course is never physical that they done when them and manipulate because they. it's a fortune every time you do it so manipulative there are many people you are you know chris paul of and others who are you know more experts in this than i am but
3:57 pm
it's absolutely clear this manipulation goes it why do they do it well because first of all because they haven't got the gold they have so they actually you know need to get the price down. and secondly gold reveals the bad management of the economy and that's why they want gold down so but i have a very useful view that manipulation only last short in the long run the real market will win and in this case gold will win they can all you know they haven't in the last fourteen years we've gone from two fifty to thirty nine hundred and thirty today that trend will continue because it only does it to reflect the destruction of paper money. all right fair enough grice thanks so much for being on the casa report ok so pleasure to be here max thanks very much and that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert i like to thank our guests he got of on grier matterhorn asset management if you'd like to get in touch tweet us at kaiser report until next time.

4:00 pm
breaking news on r.t. international the streets of madrid as thousands converge in the spanish capital from across the country people plagued by unemployment and struggling to make their voices heard a report live from the nation's capital shortly. and crowds are running in ukraine's eastern city of donetsk because pro russian protesters take to the streets in defiance of the new leadership in kiev. and even venice votes to break away from italy in an unofficial referendum with a local saying that fed up with billions in taxes for the capital.
4:01 pm
from the new center here in moscow this is r.t. international with the twenty four hours a day where we begin with our breaking news in spain where the mass march against austerity has turned violent protesters from all across the country have converged on madrid to vent their anger at the government. is the scene we can speak to him so you've got to tell us where are you on what do you see what is happening. so much i'm going to benefit. from what the police have been told. some of the close. i'm going to. go. even with my press card but. the latest news is bad group of protesters and. protests rally. sheltered is still being held in this part of. a group of the
4:02 pm
protesters has apparently. been taking all the couples let's look at least. physically young for custer with the colors. we had to actually want to. go into we're seeing at the spot watching police as well but it intially preparations for this rally had been thinking wait for new each you eat away and thousands of people from all across spain and been marching walking literally by foot so much grit in spanish capital from all over the country. they were planning to take part in this mass rally which did aspen but i have to say that we've met with several groups of these activists as they were marching towards madrid and it was really peaceful this entire time i could speak. and eventually
4:03 pm
some of the older acted and they did say that there was a chance of some problems with the police if the young radical action it would also sort of join its whole rally because it is quite big and of course control the future mountain people. basically it seems that this is what we may be seeing right now initially even means. movement. to be economy the economy the focus point six percent. population or unemployed. members. where you work. in terms of unemployment the we. mean you are forced to leave the country in search for jobs elsewhere so there's great what level of.
4:04 pm
disappointment. more. you mean by the troika of international creditors and my brussels who are going for even more. reduction on. people. only even more ego thanks very much indeed for that no doubt with him more from me from madrid through out the nights in the meantime thank you that's going to piss going off then of course we'll be keeping you up to date with those developments in the fleet. well other news now we're about to see pictures from outside an air base near the crimean city of sevastopol home to russia's black sea fleet now according to reports is now under the control of the crimean self-defense forces which are escorting the ukrainian military from its territory meanwhile local officials say ukraine has blocked the border with crimea preventing people
4:05 pm
including ukrainian forces from leaving the peninsula i mean authorities say it is a provocation. or no but go to every day she says to me we're on high alert they're preparing us for transfer and i asked him how much longer they have to see she says they're not saying where did kept in the dark while i was children of their guardian military equipment really aren't for calm but my son calls me and tells me that they are not being sad summarize and a piece of bread and that's all food they are getting every day now the crime here is officially become part of russia ukrainian forces stationed there have been offered the chance to take russian citizenship and join the local military or leave but for those crimean serving in ukraine it looks like a struggle for them to return home. i'm here in donetsk where again thousands of people have demonstrated on the streets this time in support of a president victory on a college who was ousted by the to impose government in kiev thousands of people gathered on the square and eventually marched on the huge administrative building
4:06 pm
where they are demanding the referendum that they've been calling for for a number of weeks now so after we saw the referendum on sunday see crimea join the russian federation this week it seems the people in donetsk have taken inspiration from this and demanding a referendum of their own to bring them closer to russia because those are people who are saying that they do not choose the authorities in kiev but also that the authorities in kiev don't seem to be listening to what's what they've been trying to say for a number of weeks now here in the east of the country. ukraine russia and bella reuss we are brothers we want to be together and not divided and told how we should live and what we should do by the e.u. and america. again because it is a legitimate president we are against the interim self-proclaimed leaders who've left our listeners being useless that no one is listening to our own half a leader to help us achieve what we want so far and what we want is freedom and not fifty years for our children and our future. is the demands don't seem to be based on being pro russian but also seem to be based on economic reasons as well and they
4:07 pm
think that moves closer to russia would be more beneficial to the region than a move to authorities in kiev that seems to be moving closer to the e.u. it's a similar scene like we've just seen in the nets can many other eastern regions protesters have been gathering in the streets there as well saying they're taking a stand against the neo nazi leanings of the interim government while the far right gaining influence in ukraine is not the main issue for european leaders who are now focused on putting more pressure on moscow over crimea the e.u. is planning to cut its reliance on russian gas to slapping further sanctions on the country with immense and he's a former british diplomat and professor at the greek state university but he's not all voices within the european union sound the same when it comes to sanctions. there is a disagreement behind the scenes between countries like bugg area and even germany about how far these sanctions will go because a lot of the important economic sectors in some european countries actually are
4:08 pm
beginning to depend especially in the energy sector on their cooperation with russia so i think it's more a question of the herd political egos because of the complete success of what russia has done the threats are surprisingly unspecific actually know that a lot of large companies do not agree with these threats including boeing for example from the united states including chevron so. well russia is being blamed for alex in crimea and escalating international tensions despite the fact the referendum was actually the initiative of the local parliament maritime security professor and acclaimed russian historian chris bellamy i spoke to him earlier he believes the vote was fair and transparent. the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the ukrainian government or interim government point of view on this i was watching that referendum last
4:09 pm
week and very intently and it seemed to be very well organized very calm and it certainly was not so as david cameron said to the power of the of a gun in a way even though some crimean tatars and ukrainians boycotted it nevertheless it was a clear statement that the majority of people in crimea wanted to turn to the russian federation which the way they had been until nine hundred fifty four washington is standing by former opposition after supporting its rise to power while the up people has been hailed as a victory for democracy crimea's vote of self-determination is being dismissed as illegal. looks at how the u.s. backed regime change played out. exporting chaos and to the world promoter of the right to self-determination and other high principles the us we are long as
4:10 pm
the days when the international community will stand quietly by while one country forcibly seizes the territory over another and incidentally behind this noble statement is the number one med learn internal affairs of other nations middle east is an example of what is known as the arab spring is. said of destruction achieving political purposes throw having full fire at the destroyed unfed of the country that coined the term regime change promoting unrest wherever on the globe serves its interests latin america has been a major target of the us over the years and. we have examples of outside intrusions and the internal politics of states like mexico guatemala panama nicaragua haiti dominican republic and we're not going to repeat his attempts of a coup in venezuela argentina brazil door and believing that there was no coup and the one hundred fifty year old history of latin america with the u.s.
4:11 pm
government did not apply to him. coincidentally u.s. participation in events in ukraine did not begin or end in distributing snacks or friendly gestures of support i've invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic saying the west spent five billion dollars the stabilizing ukraine this is something that is a a mess that is put on russia's doorstep by the west before it can protest turned into chaos russia proposed that ukraine work with both the e.u. and russia the u.s. had another idea wanted to see ukraine as part of its ally the e.u. read to eventually find its way into nato there is no other path that would bring ukraine back to longer. political stability and economic a popular joke among what an american leaders why will there never be a coup in the u.s. because there is no u.s.
4:12 pm
embassy in washington freedom sovereignty and international law all terms repeated like a mantra by u.s. officials but with a handful of examples of the u.s. attempting to property or other parts of the world that joke is not so far from reality and if they see. washington d.c. see christian pool has singled out russian officials including reporter the stars for the atomic churkin is the country's envoy to the un and she blasted him for refusing to give comments and being afraid of tough questions. people like churkin feel they don't need have to leave their comfort choke and own daughter is the us based reporter for russia today in new york she's shown here quizzing u.s. state department spokesman jim psaki over this whole ukraine crisis and in the pond she's even reported on her own father. well the russian ambassador has already issued his response to the criticism highlighting this i'm
4:13 pm
a poor curious family links but also saying he's used to tough questions and accusations i think been consistently speaking out at the security council for years and to r.t. dot com for more details of this ongoing. r.t. we are trained up and we have a passion to be lecturers to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents still ahead here not international law british universities are widely in the horizon students are being exposed to stricter surveillance. but the u.k. government seems to view the education process a bit differently stay with us to find out which home office policies are outraging the british academic as the.
4:14 pm
crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want.
4:15 pm
anti fascism activists have rallied in britain what they called a day of action against racism in europe protesters were calling for hardliners to be stopped from making gains in the upcoming parliamentary elections i'm not joined live by one of the demonstrations organizers darley from the against fascism movement so tell us more about your concerns what you were actually campaigning about in this rally today well really we want to send a clear message to the politicians in britain ahead of the european elections that they shouldn't really be allowing parties like the u.k. independence party to set the political agenda in terms of scaremongering on
4:16 pm
migrant workers and immigration from the e.u. and outside of the e.u. to britain and to stop scaremongering and to whip up racism in the barents the european elections so when you put your sort of racism and fascism so you put ukip in the same sort bracket as the golden dawn party in greece for example which has actually been a lot. i wouldn't say that ukip is a fascist organization i would say that they are a far right populist organization and that it's not correct mainstream political parties to allow them to set the political agenda they should be standing up or to such organizations and saying you know britain needs immigrants the reason why we have migrant workers here today and that we don't abolish all immigration is because quite frankly our economy in the. you know waves of immigration have built great and made britain the country that it is today i.e.
4:17 pm
one of the most richest and powerful countries in the world talk about what's happening in ukraine at the moment we've been showing some disturbing pictures of course of the rise of neo nazis them over the last month or so what do you make of what's happening there does that concern you well of course i mean the rise of any fascist organization in any part of europe is deeply disturbing so we're very concerned about stories that we've seen on russia today about jewish people jewish rabbis concerned about the rise of neo nazi is the attacks on synagogues that they're having to flee the ukraine so obviously we find this were deeply disturbing and we know we we call on. the russians and playing into everybody of course if you were to join in. a movement to stand up against fascists yes you're calling up on those in europe do you think the european authorities are really doing anything
4:18 pm
about this not see element this extremist element rising in ukraine or do you think the european governments are community turning a blind eye at the moment. well i think you know. you're quite right to ask the question because i think that the growth of the neo nazi and fascist movement is currently being somewhat sidelined in the coverage of what's happening in the the ukraine at the moment and that's wrong and you know we're not saying you know what should or should not be done in the ukraine at the moment that it's up to. the people to decide that it's not up to them to dictate what sort of should not happen but what we can very clearly state is that you know we're very concerned about the rise of the a nazi movement and fascist movement that have risen not just now in ukraine but since the collapse of the the soviet union we've seen a rise of neo nazi and fascist movement across europe and we're concerned about
4:19 pm
that and we have to say no you know we fought and many people lost their lives to dying fighting fascism and we cannot allow this just passion to rise again ok so we thank you very much indeed dolly from the you know against fascism movement live in london thank you very much for joining us here in our international thank you. for the sions voted overwhelmingly for their own sovereign state in a referendum on independence from italy inspired by a rise in european separatists eighty nine percent of residents from the floating city said yes to breaking away from rome's control in the unofficial ballot means as many as two million people want to see the lagoon region and the self rule earlier i talked to a professor of history paulo one of the he was one of the authors of the declaration for independence and he says the crimean example has inspired the nation's. banning incest pretty much as.
4:20 pm
is i sure. is well above sixty. seven percent so is the one of the strongest fiscal pressure assume the war on drugs and by creating a new lease on the patient stated we would use the physical pleasure on the citizens there's also this all comes at a very interesting time doesn't it bring in mind crime if through a referendum has now become part more hours if they want to we have put it there. what happened there in crimea is that encouraged to think of the separatist movements now throughout the world yes absolutely yes i mean are people looking for that will see young adults with a nation where those who go back. to draw in the rush and they decide they all the while knowing it was going well. and i think. the principle and so the nation evolves and one of them is that we have been growing much in cost by vehicle i mean our what's happened in crimea has really grabbed the world headlines doesn't
4:21 pm
it but nobody's really talking much about venice at the moment and yet it's very close to the heart of europe isn't it it's an extraordinary day i did a little while what was this was a well something on this back to the referendum for scotland implantable really well you know normally there is a plan to work for in. the form of the man who had the rule and various we're going to have things. why in a short time around the star as you can be there is a reason why there was no preparation you look through. your reality. classrooms are a space for open dialogue not checkpoints that's the message lectures from the u.k.'s most renowned universities are trying to make clear to the government in an open letter published in the guardian newspaper they say they are being forced to share their students' immigration records with the home office parties police work and went to talk to the academics who spoke out against the policy. the british government wants to stop student visas being abused but the way that the border
4:22 pm
force is going about it has rubbed a number of universities up the wrong way over one hundred sixty academics from universities such as oxford and warrick have written a letter to the guardian newspaper saying that they are under increasing pressure to check the immigration details of their students well to talk about this in more detail i'm joined by one of the signatories of that letter professor desert friedman from goldsmiths university of london professor friedman thank you very much for joining us tell me what is it that u.k. visas and immigration are forcing universities and professors like yourself to do they want stringent monetary requirements on international students and we feel this is just simply discriminate sharee we feel that it's not really part of our jobs we are trained up and we have a passion to be lecturers all to be involved in teaching support we are not border agents but it's no secret that getting a student visa was in
4:23 pm
a touristy easy way for someone who had absolutely no intention of studying to obtain a visa to come to the u.k. what's wrong with the u.k. border agency checking that students really are studying if they really do want to clamp down on the abuses where they do take place that has to be in those countries where the visas are suit and not to try to get academics or support staff to do jobs for which they are not trained and have very little interest in the on the one hand we've got this reduction of immigration to the u.k. that the government says it wants to achieve the other hand you've had slashed budgets for universities and an increase in tuition fees so where does that leave universities right now universities are dependent increasingly on the income of international students and in their own self preservation you would think they would be lobbying incredibly hard. inside government to say that this is on the except to work and discriminate truth for me this should be a pastoral relationship. i do not want to treat my international students any differently from my home and e.u.
4:24 pm
students professor friedman thank you very much for your comments well the home office whose job it is to check that foreigners are in the u.k. legally they've defended the reforms they say that the process is now more robust and less open to abuse reporting from london i'm poly boy. coming up the bread basket of the world why it's regional economies faltering externality international focus is on africa but if you're watching it from britain go underground with host afshin rattansi coming up after the break. i don't want to beat a dead horse i try to add varieties opinion pieces but you created melt out hits
4:25 pm
really close to my heart and affects people i know when i see obama gleefully talking to self elected new ukrainian prime minister just burns the inside of my brain he's throwing hypocrisy gasoline on my fire of contempt not only did the leak phone call from the estonian defense minister claim that the kiev opposition used both sides but now the former ukrainian chief of security confirmed that the sniper fire came from a building under the control of the protesters at that time also the alliance currently in power in kiev glorified out see germany and you slogans like putting jews and russians to the knife so america's first black president a nobel peace prize winner who was elected by waves of tolerant optimistic lefty liberals is smiling and chatting with a leader who is supported by white power right winger groups that use the murder of their own members to oust a democratically elected government there william nightmare is now my friends but that's just my opinion.
4:26 pm
vent to do. twenty two million thirty. while. still in from african farmers must see now the woods it was handed over to all bought by hedge funds and multinational societies we. so when the world bank says yes we have to encourage foreign investment. to give this pool exploited african land rights to the fruit farms in ma say. or to new york hedge funds. did your because then they are capable of making this land profitable now that is a moderate argument for the farmers who work locally. process i
4:27 pm
think for a country to make the best use of those resources that it has in abundance and to. given the limits of its own domestic market of course to export those resources in order to generate wealth and that's a strategy that a number of not just african countries but countries in throughout the world have done very well by. so i wouldn't look at it in the narrow perspective of just been able to reimburse death debt but in fact as a way of generating wealth and generating opportunities for growth and through growth progress on poverty reduction everywhere where the i.m.f. imposes structural adjustment involving the extension of land devoted for export led agriculture the greater the number of people going hungry. only
4:28 pm
twenty percent of africa's population has access to drinking water and contrary to widely held belief there is no lack of water in sub-saharan africa however the policies put in place by the i.m.f. in the aftermath of structural adjustment plans. only aggravated the difficulties people experience in accessing water sources. like fed up with access to drinking water in this village is an acute problem and it is because of these structural adjustment programs because the state has considerably reduced its budget for the water sector and has not provided the economic and financial resources to create or improve existing water sources use them. so the situation is dressed take when it comes to what i feel my bucket of
4:29 pm
water because there is no point to hope for running water which you have only a few hours during the night not every night and sometimes you can go for five or six days without any running water at all so everyone looks for a place where there are wells those who cannot go to the well let's go to the river and make do with that. the reason that a heavily indebted poor country of the should do was. thought to be desirable was in fact by me the international community it was that it was very clear that the. poor countries were drowning under the amount of debt that they had and so every year they would borrow money and they would use that same amount of money to pay back old debts. and the net result is that it was really nothing remaining in
4:30 pm
the middle. names wolf and so on played a very significant historical role did you by launching the heavily indebted poor countries initiative. and by making the governments of the o.e.c.d. countries understand and admit that it wasn't possible to continue to perpetually refinance african debt even with subsidies which in fact amounted to gradually stopping it but within a system that kept african countries in a situation of political financial dependence which was politically economically and culturally highly damaging for everyone. we have put in place another process of reform which this time instead of stunting growth which has often been the case with structural adjustment programs encourages growth we began by preparing a strategy document to reduce poverty which emphasizes social aspects this is not
4:31 pm
necessarily the case with structural adjustment programs it is a range of reforms that takes into account social aspects which largely seem beyond structural adjustment programs. but i will not tell you about the details about how difficult it was to set up something that was completely new at the time. but the results in the countries that have already benefited from this debt relief have been positive we have seen that these resources have been reassigned in large part to human development activities. so we then set. the board to swipe clean. no alas no if you look at what we vote in two thousand that is to say just after the introduction of this new poll the wiping out move and two years of adjustments and then in two thousand and six.
4:32 pm
after all these here is after some cancellation measures go in notice that the debt for the poorest was reduced by one point four percent so i see who are making fun of. an example of how developing countries economies were courts going to vice like scenario where on the one we are told that our debt will be reduced so that we won't have to get into debt again and on the other hand we have no money in our accounts so we should make do with a little money we have i don't give a damn about the conditions for cancelling the debt when they say we will cancel the day you will now have health care and education but how will we have it when in order to cancel the debt they make you a forest code a mining code and an investment which no longer allow you to be sovereign in your national resources we see this how much plundering of mineral resources goes on
4:33 pm
forests environmental destruction the very confiscation of some public companies confiscation i say so how will the government have money to take care of social affairs even if we cancel the debt so it's really a masquerade when they talk about reducing poverty in the world bank program that the debt forgiveness programs of the world bank and the i.m.f. promote these days in the u.s. government and the others are shams for the most part because they're telling these countries and the african nations particularly recently have suffered under this that ok we'll forgive your debts but you have to accept these conditionality. yes you know you have to open your doors totally to privatisation by our corporations you have to sell off all your assets to our corporations your utility companies your water and sewerage system companies your telephone companies your schools your jails are going to sell all that off to our corporations sick of it is this if you
4:34 pm
amputate a person's limbs that's how explain it they cut off one of your limbs here one there and then they say to you you are free but you are free sir so we fought against poverty but when you asked the question but how am i going to eat if i have no arms how am i going to walk much of it they say to us no no we will come with a spoon and we will feed you is that what you call freedom. the so-called heavily indebted poor countries initiative allows states that have respected i.m.f. recommendations to obtain a cancellation of a share of that debt. which logically should give them a boost in terms of budgets. and reality though it only makes it possible for new financial actors to step into the breach and make outrageous speculations which have been nicknamed vulture funds.
4:35 pm
for that you need to the process of vulture funds is quite straightforward in fact your investment fund you buy it tends to a hundredth of the value of a debt contracted ten years ago it is now twenty years old and everyone thinks that it will never be reimbursed he'd go before the court and demand the full reimbursement of the debt in addition to interest and areas this means that you have a grotesque situations where for example kensington a fund based in the cayman islands coincidentally two million of deaths from congo brazzaville and afterwards went to demand one hundred twenty million before the courts you know there would sixty times the national some what it of course do they said your rights to credit is always right it is the contract that wins out over the constraints that the country in question makes period. we have been victims of funds we have been by vulture funds and we have almost lost
4:36 pm
no dignity as a sovereign country because of these vulture funds these funds have made it possible to capture oil cargo destined for export on the high seas these vulture funds have hunted down. i'm going to tell you a story that is my predecessor arrived in washington for the annual assemblies of the i.m.f. and the world bank there he saw a man bring him an arrest warrant which would send him to prison in the united states. my predecessor had officially come to take part in these general assemblies . but this man had come in the name of the vulture funds it was a nightmare for us we knocked on all the most important doors of the world to ask for help to solve this problem so overwhelming it was for us it didn't happen we took things in hand we sat down with these people and we talked today we are rid of these people but it's true it hurts but if i had one piece of
4:37 pm
advice to give even if i am badly placed to give advice it's that every country should avoid anything to do with these people especially control its debt so that it doesn't find itself on the second markets by the vulture funds which make money on the backs of so-called weak states. but the paradox is also that thanks to the. discovery to congo brazzaville in particular. the secret. of. buying and selling dead is. in market. because as oppose to for example. dead mean worth nothing sometimes that can be traded at a discounted rate and that is acceptable commercial practice what we don't want is
4:38 pm
to have speculation that artificially inflates the value of the debt we succumb to the club that creates a lot of trouble mc in many difficulties and do we have to think about limiting the use of these instruments for highly indebted countries.
4:39 pm
i. please please. play. safe if you need the friggin economic ups and downs in the final months day the longer the deal sank i and the rest the life until you meet a female baby every week i'll take a place to play a key. player

4:41 pm
plus you see budget weekend. big news for bank of players the jets are out the tax on thing go profits to ten percent in bingo lingo this would be a jump and jog through big drawers to little ducks quack quack it comes to herbie. welcome to the john siberian. what are the places you never go to. fun you never have. things you never do. experience you'll never again. be surprised you will.
4:42 pm
least be told language. programs and documentaries in arabic in school here on all t.v. reporting from the we'll talk sports to vo ip interviews intriguing stories for you to. see in trying. to find out more visit our big teeth. the multi-state finds itself in an untenable situation since the adoption of
4:43 pm
a new mining code imposed by the world. the country which before. is no longer but a minority shareholder. and is a perfect example of an organized hold up on the country's gold. despite months of secret negotiations with. serious presumptions weigh on this mind which contaminated the region with. used in the treatment of precious metals. without their faces covered for fear of losing their job. a somali i can talk about it. concerns us the workers in the mine and the locals is that we haven't learned anything for ten years. we don't live here there's nothing to drink here there's no drinking water these little boxes which you see surrounding us. this is where the
4:44 pm
work of the mine live in these boxes here. where does the money from the mine go i don't know. i really don't know they're a big caymans within the government. all of the west gives them goes into their pocket. the. mining exploitation company does not allow us to film in his village despite ministerial authorization. we have. a neighboring mine. confessing to us that women regularly a miscarriage is here and that the contaminated water from the ground. responsible for the evils and the causes serious respiratory problems especially for. children
4:45 pm
. today we speak about the plundering of resources in congo because the world bank in its h i p c program initiated different reforms especially the forest code in the mining code permits for mining exploitation were granted the world bank with their experts to help congo and in all of these authorizations from mine exploitation almost all the authorizations have to be reviewed because there was systematic pillaging of resources and the world bank watched on we were told that the world bank was a development bank wrong it's of bank of under development it has to be said it's
4:46 pm
clear. the big outside is china china has two point five trillion dollars in currency reserves and china is now present in africa latin america and in other asian countries where it offers extremely high sums for new loans. china has committed to invest six billion euros in projects in the democratic republic of congo these are aimed at the development of road infrastructure schools hospitals as well as the revival of the mining sector. in exchange the chinese will have access to six and a half million tons of refined copper two thousand tons of cobalt and three hundred seventy two tons of gold this minerals for projects barter agreement to surprised western countries and the i.m.f. and the world bank in particular both of whom were on the verge of cancelling the democratic republic of congo's debt these two institutions have set as
4:47 pm
a precondition that the contract be reviewed downwards. and so negotiations have been extremely hard with it has to be said with being blackmailed by representatives presidents of european countries have told us. here cheney's contracts we get treated at death you don't give them up. to make it we're happy to say that. the government and its chinese partner very hard to take a second look at that package and have indeed improved it so that now we'll be benefiting from both debt relief and additional resources for infrastructure which it so desperately needs i think china understands that africa is
4:48 pm
a continent. as for many of the things that it needs particularly natural resources it has the potential of being a significant market because it's under a million people now the twenty fifth it'll be close to two billion people today they are certainly at a stage which resembles a lot like what was practiced by france in the seventy's and its own commercial relations with africa we will also review operations which resemble life align what could have been done china is welcome india is welcome brazil is well come france is well you know it's a place with tremendous potential. my experience was. that until i arrived at the bank the word corruption had never been used by a president of the bank it had never been discussed at the board
4:49 pm
and the reason was as i was told by the general counsel was that unfortunately many member countries had corrupt governments and what you didn't want to do was to offend countries that were corrupt even some of the big company countries were thought to be corrupt and i. decided that i didn't care whether any of my members were corrupt or not but that i was not going to run an institution that was giving money. knowingly to corrupt governments deposit but i think that it is no accident that we began to speak about corruption after the fall of the soviet union for the moment because at that time but we couldn't really speak about this sort of thing without risking moving to the other side i think we changed the moral stance and it's.
4:50 pm
but i can tell you it wasn't easy. and not every country even today. regards that contribution as ring constructive and by the way not every country to be. administered is anticorruption practices. there are many countries. that use it as a competitive tool. i won't name the countries but they must be known to you. and some pretty large countries. sure thing the but corruption here is a way of life it's even that's how people live because you can work for the big companies of these countries one of us take for example our customs company. well when you go to our feeder you will find really old fashioned buses but the people
4:51 pm
who work there travel around in all some jeeps. you would see people who work at a feeder with all some houses these people build skyscrapers but there's something fishy going on at a feeder where do they find what they earn because they only work at a feeder of course so are optional rules here. is to set bascom secret it seems as if the fight against corruption works for corruption only. but as soon as you reach the government with that in the head of state the prime ministers the ministers it no longer works they investigate or start and presidential personal richmond political financing and then the richmond to friends is no longer tolerate it i could not complete and i'm claiming that this is right not only in their frica. but
4:52 pm
. i know in that context we've been we've worked with our membership to improve situations that make for better governance. economic governance and in public financial management in other areas that we work with. our membership and i think we we think there's been considerable progress in in focusing. progress in. corruption in a number of countries. when we treat people as corrupt we're not there to clear their name if they are corrupt they are corrupt but the truth is that this corruption was supported by the great powers at the time of the cold war it's the same today no african leader keeps his money at home not in congo the ivory coast
4:53 pm
of brazil. they always keep it in switzerland spain in the united states it's true too in south africa and in morocco not only in europe. africa should seek inspiration from the example of ecuador in two thousand and seven eight this latin american country proceeded with the audit of its debts to determine the illegitimate debt there is a whole series of contracts and we see it in the african case. absolutely unacceptable including from the point of view of international and national law. which i particularly rendered void. the purpose of the audit is to identify what
4:54 pm
must not be paid and it's on the basis of an ordered that the government of ecuador decided to no longer pay illegitimate debt. and i believe that if we don't want to be a martyr it's true. even by the time has come for us to take action the congolese have to understand that it doesn't have to be like this i'm sitting on a gold mine and diamonds on wood and coal to an electrical energy like being a say and despite it all we have no electricity. i am standing alongside an oil palm and despite that we import palm oil and i'm in a country where there are thinned leaders who have spoken out. like simon combine
4:55 pm
grew. and loom. but the problem is that people are disengaged today but i'm not despairing. and things will change.
4:56 pm
look it was a. very hard to make i. want to get on a plane that had sex with the hair plugs. one of the people.
4:57 pm
cut. i'd love to see some polling done in the western european countries on a bailout package for ukraine at this point in time i don't think you would like to see the results i don't think washington would like to see the results.
4:58 pm
of that. there's now no more.
4:59 pm
nato. say sorry. we wanted to create a realistic global that would represent life that would depicts life as it really is. there's an accident on route six. well some people wonderful this the whole thing is a model. of .
5:00 pm
breaking news a lot international and steady march to the spanish capital culminates in violent street battles with police testers from all over the country arrive in madrid with those plagued by unemployment and cuts trying to have their voices heard a report live from the nation's capital shortly. and crowds are running in ukraine's eastern city of the nets because pro russian protesters take to the streets in defiance of the new leadership in kiev. plus even venice votes to break away from italy and an unofficial referendum with locals saying they are fed up with forking out billions in taxes for the capital.
