breaking news a lot international. march to the spanish capital and violent street battles with police officers from all over the country arrive in madrid with those plagued by unemployment cuts trying to have their voices heard reports from the nation's capital. 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. even venice votes to break away from italy and an unofficial referendum with locals saying they are fed up with billions in taxes for the capital.
5:01 pm
breaking news story for international countrywide and a steady march to the spanish capital has resulted in violent clashes with police protesters from all over the nation have converged all madrid to vent their anger what they call empty promises by the government is there to give us an update from the scene so tell us you go what has been happening there in the spanish capital. well this massive rally was just coming to a dns or when reportedly a group of younger protesters who had masks on their faces started throwing rocks at the police the police tried to push them away from this for rumor which they've organized around this area and i can confirm that there's a very heavy police. presence in the school district is since it's the center of
5:02 pm
madrid there are lots of luxury hotels in this part of town and security here is really tight so they tried to push them away from these police fences really and then we started seeing firecrackers being thrown at the police and reportedly. started firing. started rubber bullets started started firing rubber bullets sort of at these protesters as a result there are injuries on both sides and several people have been. arrested as well and we've been actually following these protesters for a few days now and everyone that i've spoke to in general this was a peaceful rally but especially the older protesters they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger professors the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems would happen and apparently that's what's happened here tonight and of course there's a test is from all over spain tell us how do they actually get there.
5:03 pm
well they've been marching by foot for nearly two weeks now all across spain and today is the day one they gathered together they met each other all these columns thousands of people men and women those who have a job and those who don't mention years and students they've been walking for hundreds of kilometers in the rain under the sun to make their message heard and they or strongly critical against the government's policies national economic policies that is the spanish economy is growing severe problems so unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u. state with more serious problems in that sense is greece after greece comes spain but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the you.
5:04 pm
in spain i don't have a job and what this means is that most of those who get an education here they have to leave the country to look for a better. life somewhere else a job somewhere else also we're getting around two million spaniards really dependent on state pensions and food. banks and sean is also applying a additional pressure on the economy at same time of the troika the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more. salaries and at the same time they're not promising any improvement in the economy in the next four years which obviously is aggravating the situation and is even making these thousands of people more angry. thanks very much indeed for that update. the international crimean self-defense forces have reportedly taken full control of
5:05 pm
. russia's black sea fleet now these are the pictures from earlier showing the entrance to the military base crimean forces are said to be escorting the ukrainian military from the premises. say ukraine has blocked the border with crimea preventing people including craney and forces from leaving the peninsula crimean authorities say it is a provocation. officially become part of russia ukrainian forces stationed there have been offered the chance to take russian citizenship and join the military or leave but for those crimean serving in ukraine it looks like a struggle for them to return. 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 see she says they're not saying where did kept in the dark while our children of their guardian military equipment really aren't for combat my son calls me and tells me
5:06 pm
that they are not being sad summarize and a piece of bread and that's all food they are getting every day. and ukraine is being rocked by protests against the new leadership in kiev with many raising the alarm over the rise of near nazi groups the really been the city of donetsk they've been charging russia with some of them are being a referendum on possible suspicion from ukraine right o'neill is the forty. 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 call which was ousted by the crew imposed 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 to 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
5:07 pm
to say for a number of weeks now here in the east of the country. ukraine russia and belarus 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 left power. no one is listening to us john 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. 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. well it's a similar scene to what we've just seen in donetsk in many other eastern regions of the country 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
5:08 pm
gaining influence in ukraine is not the main issue for european leaders who are now focused on piling more pressure all moscow of a crime here trying to cut its reliance on russian gas to slapping further sanctions on the country when melanson he's a former british diplomat professor at the greek state university believes not all voices within the european union sell 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 end in energy sector on their cooperation with russia so i think it's more a question of the turks political eagles 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
5:09 pm
example from the united states including chevron so. well russia is being blamed for at lax 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 believes the vote was fair and transparent the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the new 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 a way even though some crimean tartars and ukrainians boycotted it nevertheless it was
5:10 pm
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. washington is standing by ukraine's formal opposition of to supporting its rise to power mali our people it's been hailed as a victory for democracy crime is voters self-determination is being dismissed as illegal or he's honest as a chicken 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 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 middle east is an example of what is known as the arab spring is. said of destruction
5:11 pm
achieving political purposes throw having full fire at the this throwing them 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 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 there was no coup and the one hundred fifty year old history of latin america that the u.s. government did not apply to. coincidentally u.s. participation in events in ukraine did not begin or end in distributing snacks or friendly gestures of support they'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
5:12 pm
the stabilizing ukraine this is something that is a 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 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 reality and party washington d.c. . c.n.n. anchor christiane amanpour has singled out russian officials including reporter
5:13 pm
that i was just full of a bit too early china can use the country's envoy to the u.n. and she blasted him for refusing to give comments and being afraid of tough questions. people like churkin feel they don't we need have to leave their comfort zone chokin own daughter is the us based reporter for russia today in new york she's shown here with us state department spokesman jen 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 muslim and poor curious family links and also saying he's used to tough questions and ickes ations i mean been consistently speaking out at the security council the years have taught you don't come for more details of the route. close to the head for you while british universities are widening their horizons students are being
5:14 pm
exposed to strict surveillance. 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 the u.k. government seems to be the education process a bit differently stay with us to find out which his policies are outraging the british academic and the. other. party is that the. issues that no one is with to get that you deserve answers from.
5:15 pm
hate speech is a. protest. across
5:16 pm
the bloc should not be ignored in the wake of the recent. 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 the rise of any fascist organization in any part of europe is deeply disturbing concerned about the rise of neo nazi youth and attacks on synagogues and that they're having to flee the ukraine we're not saying what should or should not be done in the ukraine at the moment that it's up to. the people to decide that is what we can very clearly state is that you know we're very concerned about the rise of the a nazi movement and fascist amazement. for the asians have voted overwhelmingly for
5:17 pm
their own sovereign state and the referendum on independence from italy inspired by a rise in european separatism eighty nine percent of residents from the floating city said yes to breaking away from rome's control an official ballot well that means as many as two million people want to see the lagoon region under self rule then there are talk to professor of history paolo but of dealey he was one of the authors of the declaration for independence he says the crimean example has inspired venetians. banning says pretty much as benetton in the. triangle. is sure. is well above sixty per cent and only seventy percent so is the one of the strongest fiscal pressures in the world and by creating a new lease on the mission state we would use the physical pleasure all the citizens of business 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 and we have put in there. what happened there in crimea is that encouraged to think of the separatist
5:18 pm
movements now throughout the world yes absolutely yes i mean are people looking for that will see young adults with the nation will look to go back. to join the rush and they decide they all the while knowing it was going well. and i think. it is the principle also the mission of evolves and one of them is that we have been growing much in caused by vehicle i mean. what's happening in 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 got a little while what was that this was a communist back to the referendum for scotland an implantable that he won well you know normally there is a lot of work for him to call come along. with the form of the man who had the rule and various we're going to have the things. why in short time on the stalled.
5:19 pm
there was a reason why there was no preparation you look to. your reality. check now what our team is lined up for you website stories there include avoiding the n.s.a. is all seeing google is about them all to the christian technology makers even the service new proof dorothy dot com for more details on. plus despite the planned pullout of u.s. troops from afghanistan washington keeps pumping billions of cash into the country reconstruction of the taxpayers' money appears to be flowing into the wrong hands for more on how the corruption has been exposed to a website. 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
5:20 pm
share their students' immigration records with the home office pretty boyko want 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 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
5:21 pm
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 the in 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
5:22 pm
would be lobbying incredibly hard inside government to say that this is on the except to go and discriminate for me this should be a pastoral relations. i do not want to treat my international students any differently from my home and eat you 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 i'm poly boy. for international news stories in brief now israeli forces have killed three palestinians in a gun fight in the occupied west bank incident happened during a raid on the house of a fugitive hamas member wanted by israel for his image involved with the terror attacks on our supporters carried the bodies through the streets chanting slogans against the palestinian president who's involved in u.s. brokered peace talks with israel tensions are currently running high ahead of april's deadline to set
5:23 pm
a framework to advance the already from trigger shay sions. i i i rather thousand supporters of the far right golden dawn party are staged a rally called greece for greeks protesters chanted slogans against the old prime minister and state controlled media. ahead of a coming for the general elections in may this is government has recently cracked down on the rising right shouting the openly fashion school board party which is connected to the killing of an adze right wing wrap up in the park. one of the most secure locations in libya tripoli's international airport has been bought and explosives were detonated on the runway although there were no casualties it's the latest attack in the country which is appealed for international help to combat what it calls terrorism road militias running rampant and have even taken over the oil fields. of the southwest pakistan where a collision between a petrol tanker and two passenger buses has killed at least thirty five people with
5:24 pm
many victims burning to death all of vehicles burst into flames just moments after the crash mostly because the buses were also transporting gas and diesel canisters on their roof in. city buses operating there is close to the ready border are reportedly often involved in the illegal smuggling of the radio fuel. and week before local elections the turkish prime minister has vowed to wipe out twitter as a method of voiding further unrest but the social network has exploded in response the number of tweets from turkey reportedly rose one hundred thirty eight percent within hours that says uses for easy ways to bypass the bad they had blasted the move with mocking pictures protesters say by attacking the social sites authorities are simply trying to sweep corruption scandals under the carpet as a key we have the power africa newswire believes it's only going to leave a bitter aftertaste. it's connected with the upcoming elections both local and national what then turkey of course there's been
5:25 pm
a huge amount of attention surrounding it corruption scandal involving prime minister erdogan and then of course there has been the response from many people of course who are concerned about this even people within the turkish government itself even though president abdullah pool. reportedly had tweeted himself distancing himself from the prime minister so i think it's a combination of factors at a political but i think it's in the long term that's going to backfire on the other john in the party because quite interesting i when we have these types of undemocratic actions and proclamations coming out of countries that have good relations with the united states you don't get the kind of response that you would see in other countries for example the restrictions that have been placed in syria or in the republic of sudan or in zimbabwe or even in washington in terms of the
5:26 pm
recent developments surrounding ukraine in crimea when he's in health and breaking the set with host i mean martin is coming away in just a couple of minutes this is all a team international. and
5:27 pm
then on the. radio. paying for the products with this label. guarantees better deals for the third world produces. again at the small print users part of the business and by the workers on it and i see it and advocates better working conditions and high social standards we give them five euros
5:28 pm
a day. and it's not enough to satisfy us but. yes all of the poor are at their wits said my entrance to jaros a week when i asked the boss for a bit more he refuses my salary is only no for my feet and money for my family in haiti. fair trade behind the scenes almost see.
5:29 pm
what's up we all i'm out in martin and this is breaking 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 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 as almost
5:30 pm
a quarter million more barrels than keystone in the u.s. other pipelines are expanding or undergoing construction such as that alberta clipper pipeline which will carry as many as five hundred seventy thousand barrels a day there is 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 of already happening right under our noses and let's break the set . a. very hard to. get back when there are no.
5:31 pm
all right folks i'm really psyched to introduce a brand new segment where i'll be calling out police misconduct brutality and 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
5:32 pm
against police brutality has actually been held annually in montreal for the last eighteen years according to live tweets 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 risk arrest in an effort to change a system they describe as discriminatory against minorities and the poor but on the u.s. where whole why and police officers are urging state lawmakers to not do away with a state law that allows cops to get this have sex with prostitutes as undercover 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 arrest these days move him back to the mainland or los angeles in the city of high speed chases and daily instances of policemen. the l.a.p.d. has just added 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
5:33 pm
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. is new to 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 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 a u.c.l.a.
5:34 pm
psychologist adds that the research finds that quote black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at age ten 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 illinois supreme court just truck 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 important 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
5:35 pm
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 is a young spoken word how it from england who's 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 a continent it is 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
5:36 pm
a struggle in humanity's not on track we've got a heads in the sand and i provide 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 the will to blind to see always seek the truth but kalman p. is thought of me i saw a different perspective and struggled by the hour so i knew ignorance was bliss but knowledge could give me power so now i call for humanity not just for one nation 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 and wake up can we put on the even 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
5:37 pm
keep on taking the easy while yet. 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 for my generation we misled as a youth that we were about fuck you pushed you to false misleading truth we prone to propaganda and we prone to being information we told 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 lower in and poverty's increase in weed out cities to get larger buildings to get taller but trees to get shorter and followers to get smaller were 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
5:38 pm
actually judge intelligence or is it just listening to our elders and improving our obedience. of possessions an illusion of worth we tricked into thinking are we trying to buy wholeness and are 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 routine a hoax to relive for the long things while still white things choke is mainstream t.v. to jail can it dictate our truncheons does it actually bring us together or does it separate us into functions we categories each other virus social hierarchy to status is made by humans so who really are we it's ego destroying eco are the real problems discard used do we really know the truth or does a society feed us laws we ask if in the voids and has money hold any true weight could we drop our precious comforts to bring you up on it states it really is time
5:39 pm
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 needing a seek out information in a world kind of a web of lies what is there a particular moment for you when you realize that the government and media are 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 and all thoughts of figures such as you know shooters and teachers and stuff 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 mainly 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
5:40 pm
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 was a priority you know i believe materialism is ok as long as it's not a party 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 our 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 things are really not to all from a human perspective you know you're from the u.k. a close u.s. ally to our war machine going to 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 what i don't like to see is if. a human being living in
5:41 pm
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 and 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 if i could. middle eastern people and i always believed that the same as me so what difference really is that i couldn't agree more borders are meeting the borders of money everything's manmade 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 you know there will be. you know you perform the poem i call for humanity what would you say i
5:42 pm
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 of the mainstream t.v. feeds down through 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 lot things up for me and it's really made me like appreciate life in a lot more ways you know appreciate nature much more i'm not so stressed all the time i see life for what it is not was a main call you know i want people to work together to realize that we're a team humanity the team is no borders there's no different nations in the end of the day there will officially constructs that we've made thank you so much coming on to sherry now website we find out more about your work jamie six months with jamie and you can search on you tube jamie michael for your money what a society love humanity thank you so much for coming on and if you have a trip. coming up i'll talk about the disturbing resegregation of america's public
5:43 pm
schools stick around. you but you. big news for big go players the jets or the tax on profits percents in big old lego this would be jump and john gruber drawers too little ducks quack quack it comes to herbie.
5:44 pm
right. first. and i think that your. letter. and. the. 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 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 in reversing the centuries of institutionalized racism in this country but a disturbing new report released today by the department of education civil rights
5:45 pm
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 back. oxidants only make up eighteen percent of preschool in the woman's 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 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
5:46 pm
to attend these schools basically this means if you're a minority you're almost assured 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 and i don't say that lightly see according to the 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 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
5:47 pm
a problem well because these segregated schools still remain incredibly unequal from their wider counterparts in everything from the inexperience 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 it instead we've largely seen the same tired approach coming out of this administration's education department obama initiatives like race to 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 here is to a set of academic standards known as common core not only do these types of 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
5:48 pm
fits all solutions to american education not only is the strategy stale and unimaginatively but we now know that it's only recreating a crisis we supposedly solved sixty years ago. i always get a hard on for how much negative news i cover on the show because let's face it there's a ton of things we report our most aren't all that great but today is friday so i think about the time to laugh and also to cover of the most amazing technological advancements happening in the world today from the visible cloaks to remote control cockroaches science fiction has officially become reality and who better to break down all the insanity in 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 area we know how crazy the oil lobby is here we know the
5:49 pm
stranglehold it has on d.c. of course they've stifled the electric car for the last you know the who killed the electric car they stifle this technology but they haven't stifled the test locked or 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 making a really difficult for tesla to sell their cars some something with chris christie usually easily. i don't know why he would be involved in backroom dealing but yeah they're trying to it's really funny they're like do 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 thermal system could power together 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 realize how underwater just to have a monopoly on our energy resource it's insanely and they can also you know they can
5:50 pm
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 don't even have some things of stop every subject and again we can build the largest surveillance infrastructure the world has ever seen but we can't touch our infrastructure we can't like fix our infrastructure given electric infrastructure to do it we can't change our world that way but i love and i rail at obama's state of the union finally climate change is a huge issue but that's why we need fracking like one now we're going to try crazy but until we see it only requires billions of gallons of fresh water upon her to do our ground and contaminated but it's easy to get straight paint sally chevron texaco and it's all about having a monopoly over it 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 this is just insane i mean it's
5:51 pm
a horrible i want you to put it in really quickly just explain this according to molecular biologist christina sanchez on cannabis planet cancer cells actually commit suicide after can if you can avoid it and i say that word right so. can i just see 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 medicinal marijuana then it could cause like a run on toast veto. you know it could cause a spike in the cartoon network ratings abbie we can add that are right it would be a catastrophe but why not you know that they can then we can print our own food and then eat it after we get to the manager and just all you know we're going for 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
5:52 pm
bottom up organs i mean for god's sake and twenty fourteen i mean how many people die every day on an organ donor list they will not have to anymore they're going to get organs and they're very close to organs which means just around the corner printing babies right around the corner which then brings there's this interesting ethical questions abby has to like can you hack into a friend's computer and just print him bay because you have to know you well he's not a little bit he comes 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 those thoughts don't start cloning and printing babies are i mean i was crazy i mean i think in print organs you know it 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 words 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 on right right well i think that you know like computers people
5:53 pm
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 bleeds into cockroaches. apparently control their movements by remote control or an i phone app where you 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 cars. but really how many people are able to detach from their i phone so i think we're unknowingly 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 so. i thought it was the cockroach or congress has a lower popularity then cockroaches that's disgusting and vile and bizarre that says a lot of congress maybe we can remote control congress and actually do the bidding
5:54 pm
of their constituents would be very nice if i could just implant some leads in. 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 cloak time what in the hell did i don't even understand it correctly. the department of electrical and computer engineering at the university of toronto has created a cloak adapted to different objects and sizes not full fledged invisibility yet but that's a way from being harry potter i mean going how this could affect society we're never going to hide behind an invisibility cloak and of course whenever 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 shallow water. and wrap it
5:55 pm
around coral rose so no one has to look at them anymore or or watching people in the shower there's that one to live in the sense that all we see whatever you mention of his ability people always like i want people to like is that really that great at 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 you know i don't know why that i would want to shower in a fire carriage that's why i don't know why that's what people are. hiding him more than the shower thing so we can print organs while. an invisibility cloak and have cockroaches make our dinner how in the hell is this going to change the world and how is going to change the way we live and under which i actually do think it's the potential of humankind right now is 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 evaporated nothingness you know these distractions and so it will rouse all of screen flashes and car crashes whether we can look past that and actually
5:56 pm
progress as a species that sequester that is the end of question let's hope for god's sake let's hope that it's ok for the latter over the former whatever you said lee camp thanks so much man thank you having you guys that's our show have a great weekend and join me next week when i break the set over. there which i would. look. we wanted to create

6:02 pm
we've seen firecrackers being fired at the police and reportedly rubber bullets being fired back as a result there are injuries on both sides and several people have been arrested we've been actually following these protesters for a few days now and everyone that i've spoke to in specially the older professors they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger protesters the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems could happen and apparently that's what's happened here thousands of people men and women those who have a job and those who don't pension years and student they've been walking for hundreds of kilometers in the rain under the sun to make their message her and they or shaw only critical against the government's policies specially economic policy is that the spanish economy is going through severe problems unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u.
6:03 pm
state with more serious problems in that sense is greece after greece comes spain but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the youth in spain don't have a job also we're getting reports that around two million spaniards are really dependent on state pensions and food. banks and so on which is also applying pressure on the economy at same time of the troika of the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more job cuts for more reductions of salaries and at the same time they're not promising any. brueggemann to the economy economy in the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and he's even making these thousands of people more angry. artie's you got a piece going to force them to other news crimean self-defense forces have reportedly taken full control of an air base near the crimean city of sevastopol
6:04 pm
home to russia's black sea fleet now these are pictures that you are seeing are from earlier showing the entrance to the military base crimean forces are now said to be escorting the ukrainian military from the premises meanwhile local officials say ukraine has blocked the border with crimea preventing people including ukrainian forces from leaving the peninsula crimean authorities say it was a provocation. now since the crimea has officially become a part of russia all ukrainian military stationed there have been offered a choice they can either become russian citizens and or join the local forces or leave the region but for those from crimea who are serving in ukraine returning home is now a difficult task because the every day she says to me mom we're on high and there aren't that depend on us for transfer and i asked him how much longer they have to say he says they're not saying where did kept in the dark while i was children of their guardian military equipment really aren't home but my son calls me and tells
6:05 pm
me that they are not being sad some rice and a piece of bread and that sell food they're getting every day now the east of ukraine remains restive with scores taking it to the streets to protest against the new government they do not recognize as legitimate just this saturday thousands marched through the city of donetsk demanding that the ousted president be reinstalled some of them also called for an independence referendum like the one in crimea ryan o'neal reports now from don yes. 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 call that he was ousted by the current post government in kiev thousands of people gathered on the square and eventually marched on the news of the benefits of building up by that and 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
6:06 pm
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 and here in the east of the country where you notice you have to it was ukraine russia and bella ruse sway our own 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 this is a legitimate president we are against the interim self-proclaimed leaders who left our listeners being useless that no one is listening sauce on 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 move 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. . now seems like we have just heard about from ryan they're in done yet have become
6:07 pm
frequent in many other eastern city as well protesters have been gathering in the streets voicing their concerns over the neo nazi leanings of the new authorities meanwhile leaders have been turning a blind eye to the far right gaining influence in kiev instead they've been focusing on punishing moscow for its actions in crimea brussels already sanctioned a number of authorities and is now looking at how to reduce its reliance on russian gas and william ma linson is a former british diplomat and professor at the greek state university he believes not all voices within the european union are 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 would go because a lot of the important economic sectors in some european countries actually are beginning to depend especially in the end and energy sector on their cooperation
6:08 pm
with russia so i think it's more a question of the 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. now the main accusation against moscow is that western authorities see it as an attic sation of the crimean peninsula that is that despite the fact that the people there voted overwhelmingly to join russia and of the referendum itself was proposed by the local government maritime security professor and acclaimed a russian historian a christian bellamy believes the vote was fair and transparent. but the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the ukrainian government or the interim government's point of view on this i was watching that referendum last week and very intently and it seemed to be very well
6:09 pm
organized very calm and it certainly was not so as david cameron said of the power of the of a gun in the way even though some crimean talk to some ukrainians call to the 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. washington has also dismissed crimea as joining of russia as going against international law that is as u.s. authorities have recognized the new government in kiev as legitimate branding of the change of power spearheaded by nationalist radicals as a democratic process artie's an associate churkin a 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

6:20 pm
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 a touristy easy way for someone who had absolutely no intention of studying to
6:21 pm
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 which they are not trained and have very little interest in to in 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 for me this should be a pastoral relationship. i do not want to treat my international students any differently from my home and a you student professor friedman thank you very much

what we call the. realisations that have increased the country's foreign debt with objectives that have nothing to do with human or economic development but. today the congolese people have to pay for a station which was not built for them but to supply energy to. two kilometers away . what i find appalling is the complicity of the multinationals of certain countries of businessmen and even of scientists who proposed to us this giant machine. but today we have reached a situation where we have to pay back the debt without necessarily having access to electricity. but the main problem that we face when we have financial institutions like the world bank or the international monetary fund when we debated the construction of the dam these institutions knew that we were going to use all the
6:32 pm
electricity nevertheless we were made to build this dam because it suited the big multinationals today it is the congolese people the little people who pay. for me this status odious we should repudiate it and we should even ask for a compensation from all of these companies who brought us equipment that didn't work. ingo is an example of something that has not worked but it's also an example of an investment that can work you've mentioned in those three and four are interested in seeing that the existing investments in are actually used to generate electricity for the people. ultimately over time maybe this in future ngo can provide electricity elsewhere but we're not there yet right now the priority is getting to work. he did today was to link to the katanga mines
6:33 pm
out there bypassing electricity through a high tension line which flies over most of the country have to. be so katanga could be biased at any time by cutting the interrupt in the lower congo. they want to. move we want to tricity you know village after all it is our as. instead of the foreign countries are using it. and we who own the power find ourselves in darkness. for what is happening is that angola south africa and what's wanna be the authorities with currencies well the people of lower congas feel less interest. in this village like in all other villages the main difficulty is the electricity supply. does the dam also has its own problems it cannot supply electricity in the entire public republic and more particularly in the capital
6:34 pm
kinshasa which experiences major problems with regard to energy supply. and as you can see we find wooden post says they are their defeat and lines which literally cross the rooftops of houses. with this situation we risk having problems with electrocution even house fires. in a village near. witnessed an incident which could have had dramatic consequences. everyone knows that electricity contributes to development in the well but when there are no roads we need them so you can transform farming produce electricity would allow us to conserve and packaged goods but what is happening today i think
6:35 pm
produce rots is it if we had electricity we could save our forests today we destroy them for firewood so we lose out twice we are in debt debt has its consequences now the forest is being destroyed instead of being able to use electricity we are destroying our forests. the forests of the congo basin cover an area of over one hundred seventy two million excess. in a widespread context of corruption and poor governance despite the moratorium and the forest code imposed by the world bank in two thousand and two attempts to reform that would industry have not yet met with any success in the democratic republic of congo and are endangering the planet second.
6:36 pm
some seventy percent of the world's poor people live in the countryside and depend completely on the eco system. houses them and takes care of them. when the world bank finances projects that destroy the. quality of life and even the livelihood and survival of local populations. without permission we decided to try our luck at the steelworks. threatening to call for the intervention of a minister we were allowed to visit this immense empty factory. it is in this factory was built to use and consume electricity from the nga. yet
6:37 pm
we knew very well that when they were building this factory the raw material they were going to use was scrap iron and rusty iron gathered in europe which is unacceptable given what we know the country's potential in terms of minerals is. in effect the situation is ridiculous underground particularly in. the minerals are dug up to be exported eight thousand kilometers away and smelted. then used to make steel in the northern countries to make vehicles and machines and when these vehicles on machines end up on the scrap heap they are compacted and shipped in a boat to metabo in the congo. which causes the river to rise. down the food this scrap metal is then melted in to create refined steel. it's completely ridiculous. they'll. never work it was
6:38 pm
money down the drain waste but not for the multinationals which one yet to meet in a small time national sold their technology it is the congolese people who are losing out today. and all the wealth is being controlled because of this debt. i don't think so because what is the reasoning of the heads of the world bank and i.m.f. . this is what they say we will make these developing countries used to the funding we provide them for the development and for the daily management of their business . if we make them reliance on this funding if you know we vary by obtain a means of influencing them and. the certain type of
6:39 pm
policy the pretty take. over when robert mcnamara to covert at the world bank he wanted to do something grandiose. he began by boring on the markets in order to be able to lend more he flew home and sell loans in the south where some countries admitted that they were completely incapable of thing them back. save so it's some point we can all make it may go back and we say listen you know since you can't pay your debts give us a pound of flesh so your oil real cheap to our oil companies or vote with us on the next united nations both that's critical to our to our policies or allow us to build a military base on your soil things like that and in the few times when we fail when we're unable to corrupt presidents to get them to accept these loans when we fail then the jackal's going on and they either overthrow governments or assassinate their leaders both rolled oats of ecuador and to rehearse of panama
6:40 pm
were assassinated because i was unable to corrupt them i couldn't get them to accept these conditions they mustn't go hog he didn't. who condemned the world bank the i.m.f. the exam lenders in general is a clear example. there was a coalition of interests against him by the great powers governments pre-sold. companies and international institutions. who gave the order to assassinate. in the assassination plot that i don't know but what is clear is that those who assassinated him since he knew that they did it to defend certain interests in these interests there would the interest of lenders that's for sure most of.
6:41 pm
you but you. big news for bank of players a chance for the tax on profits to. go this would be jumping jack tripper drawers too little ducks crackback it comes to herbie. 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 here i would like to see the results i don't think washington would like to see that are solved.
6:42 pm
well come to that stunt siberian. what are the places you never go to. fund the. things you never do. experience you'll never get. the surprise. that's on top of all this is the context of the cold war when western countries strongly prodded these countries to become indebted to keep them in their place
6:43 pm
going to go see it it would if it was very difficult for instance to stop backing and mobutu. even if we tried to me but given the geo political balance of the time it was you but we couldn't take the risk that a country so rich in mineral resources as a year could move to the wrong side. to the part of the. problem with that is not its absolute level. me home city. of country to pay the back end of it what it means. while structural adjustment programs are aimed at supplying capital to pay this debt. in reality we are reducing this country's chief economic success.
6:44 pm
the most to what is structural adjustment. it is really the awareness of the fact that these countries were put in a complete deadlock. that is to say that these countries were in debt and had an incapacity to continue to function which led to them taking quite drastic radical measures. with the structural adjustments the following diagnosis was made economies acknowledge the deficits and these deficits have to be paid to pay these deficits with cuts in the public spending were necessary. expenses hits were social expenses unfortunately. in doing that we cut course spending including social spending and that obviously had a negative effect on health education and social housing. this took place at a time when that sure was in power in the u.k.
6:45 pm
and reagan in the u.s. . it was really the law of the markets. and so the economists of the i.m.f. the world bank and in a lot of other countries even bilateral cooperation. allow real prices to rule and all problems will be solved. well i think that by doing that we did a lot of harm mainly because we didn't know ways to understand the economic policy of these countries to be. in focus once the structural adjustments were imposed by creditors namely the world bank and i.m.f. it was like hell on earth here and. at the hospital everything had become. consultations you have to pay to see the doctor to get more syringe more alcohol. i
6:46 pm
mean it was hell people often died from curable diseases. and people in poor health who have no access to health care makes development impossible. you know you can't concentrate on development in those conditions at times it makes you sick and revolt because it is unacceptable and bearable that's injustice in the world but the debt of congo fourteen billion dollars. what does that represent that as of two thousand and ten the total of the developing countries public debt is in the region of one point three five trillion dollars. and the us foreign and domestic debt is thirteen trillion which is ten times more. should these countries continue to pay millions of dollars the president of the republican the government have said that it takes fifty million dollars every month to service its debt how
6:47 pm
much gets spent on health and education every month the answer is zilch. teaches in primary schools badly paid and underpaid. the teacher comes to school with little biscuits that she gives out to children who should pay them back. so already from the first year of school children are taught how to get in debt we. give to children and after three days children have to. parent full money it's like an international institution if you missed the deadline the child is forced to pay double the price think if it sometimes this makes the child afraid to come to school. today with the
6:48 pm
system of parent the child who doesn't pay. well before times these economic policies have been conducted for reasons of budgetary adjustment we could no longer finance a certain number of public services and therefore we still means a financing them through privatization. but the people who control the privatizations were people who came from the outside or people well connected in the end and that did not produce very favorable results for people who were low down on the social ladder. one of the examples of the i.m.f. most brutal policies of privatization is. prevent disaster forced privatization of all the national transport office and private entrepreneurs who took over the national office. work according to the principle of private entrepreneurs which is completely normal. you'll soon see so they never send
6:49 pm
a lorry on the ground which in periods of famine in niger. leads to death as a dozen the rife because of this privatization but this is. the international monetary fund applied the first program of structural adjustment in congo in one thousand nine hundred eighty six since then the i.m.f. has been there. and no progress is being made in congo i always say that it is like a sick person who goes to the doctor the chemists they're all there the laboratory assistance they do the tests they prescribe medicine and the sick person stay sick forever what should actually happen is that the doctor should resign and thats it. what is the role of the i.m.f. if it doesn't prevent crises what is the role of the world bank this bank which is supposed to be a development. if it be the i.m.f. kills the world bank by blindly of course not intentionally but by
6:50 pm
it's a dogmatic and here to the washington consensus which is completely brutal. but in poor countries people africa's a colony it's a colony of the big corporations it's a colony of some of its own leaders who are under the thumbs of the big corporations so in a way the european empires marched out and supposedly gave africa its independence but immediately the corporations marched in and a few handpicked leaders handpicked by the european nations and the court and the corporations took over many of the countries especially the countries with good resources. for thirty years all african and latin american economies have been or inflated towards. reimbursing this debt and this is completely shattered their economies
6:51 pm
in other words the ones that we have specialized in farming which represents eighty percent of the economy in countries like mali products such as cotton cocoa for export to west african countries. behind that is the neglect of food production and the exposure of these countries to famines and malnutrition and it's no coincidence that today if eighty percent of the world's population who are dying of hunger in fact has exactly. agriculture with its current production rates could easily feed twelve billion human beings which is almost double the world's population in other words. cannibals is that dictatorship of globalized financial capital has imposed on this planet is both murderous but at the same time. it is
6:52 pm
a figure speak for themselves i could take epidemics victims of polluted water etc you. see they are asking us today to produce more products for export to make more money especially to pay back the debt so they force us to produce palm oil they ask us to produce coffee at the time of structural adjustment it was coffee palm oil cut while people had to. ask the d r c as you have diamonds you have gold gold. would you can sell and buy products which may come from china or europe the chicken that comes from europe the chicken that comes from france do will key which come from the belgian avatars or from argentina the new one and we don't need them because we can raise our own i assure you that in this country when you have planted maize for
6:53 pm
months afterwards you already have the product yeah as for rice there are regions where we produce rice even here here where we are we produce rice but as for meat we have the plateaus. today places like the plateau of are used for mining exploitation and today we import meat chicken awful we import more than one hundred forty thousand tons of meat an awful and chickens so all that is really a policy of submission a policy of dependence but we can grow everything here everything. in terms of the market fish frozen chicken. tomatoes even onions everything is imported rice too because there is no local production they used to be in these countries we used to have big rice paddy fields we grew it in these countries but everything that we produce here now has to be exported especially wood and petrol
6:54 pm
for the most part this is why you don't farm land to feed people. they have imposed a policy of zero cultivation in particular that is to say that here priority is given to increase today where even trying to substitute menu for bread in order to make sure it's more profitable because money is made locally so fortunately people hold on to their money orc their only productions that still exists are small family productions all the farms that were built during the eighty's to produce for the country and to make the country self-sufficient where destroyed. the world bank has insisted that everyone plant food for expert so vast that's all right if it is one two or three countries but when they read those in or more countries which make the same thing remember and in the same quality. coffee cotton metals etc that's an acceptable truth is there is too much supply on the market that
6:55 pm
brings prices down still concourse because this is led to a reduction in the income since the income comes from exports because they're told to do so and agree to do it. it will bill is a perfect example of this for export eighty here where we are held out the prospect of demand that the market exist that it only had to be produced must exist. and what do they find better to tell us today well we're incapable of feeding ourselves the group at google. it's because it answer is to turn towards biofuels well by if you feel lower stomachs or will we have to feel reserve wise to pollute more i don't know if you mean right now we're selling agricultural land because.
6:56 pm
you know that you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open process is critical to our democracy albus. rule. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and across several we've been hijacked lying handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers one school class from my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem trucks rational debate and a real discussion critical issues facing america by ready to join the movement then welcome to the big picture.
6:57 pm
we wanted to create a realistic movie that would represent life that would depict life as it really is . there's an accident on route six. what can be will wonderful than this the whole thing is a model. two .
6:58 pm
years now no more can lead to. paying for the products with this label. guarantees better deals for the third world produces. again at the small print use or suppliers of the business and by the workers on it in the mindset and advocates of better working conditions
6:59 pm
and high social standards we give them five euros a day. and it's not enough to satisfy us. yes all of the poor are at their wits say my entrance to jaros a week when i asked the boss for a bit more he refuses my salary is only no for my food and money for my family in haiti. fairtrade five hundred seems almost see. isolated in. so international president. session and naples crimea's do has the right to secede is it a question of international.
7:00 pm
and anti austerity marching to madrid culminates in violent street battles with police protestors from all over the country arrive in the spanish capital with those plagued by unemployment and budget cuts trying to have their voices heard. and in ukraine's eastern city of done yet thousands joined a pro russian rally to protest against to the kiev authorities while demanding that the ousted president has returned to power. plus do you have to roma venice votes to break away from italy in an unofficial referendum with locals saying they are fed up with forking out billions in taxes for the capital.
7:01 pm
and broadcasting live from our studios in moscow this is r.t.m. sean thomas glenn have you with us a nationwide anti austerity march to the spanish capital has resulted in clashes with police seventeen people were reportedly arrested and a twenty seven said to be injured during the outbreak of violence protesters from all over the nation have converged on madrid to vent their anger at what they are calling empty promises made by their government pisco office there. it was a peaceful protest rally throughout basically the entire time until the end when it was coming to an end and then suddenly a group of the young a radical protesters with their face covered started throwing stones at the police the police who had a perimeter there they started to oppressing the protesters away from it and then we've seen firecrackers being fired at the police and reportedly rubber bullets
7:02 pm
being fired back as a result there are injuries on both sides and several people have been arrested we've been actually following these protesters for a few days now and everyone that i've spoke to in specially the older professors they told me that there may be some problems with the police money comes to the younger protesters the younger activists they did expect some sort of problems could happen and apparently that's what's happened here thousands of people men and women those who have a job and those who don't pensioners and students they've been walking for hundreds of kilometers in the rain under the sun to make their message her and they are srong really critical against the government's policies specially economic policies things that the spanish economy is going through severe problems so you know unemployment stands at around twenty six percent which means that the only other e.u. state with more serious problems in that sense is greece has to greece comes to spain
7:03 pm
but when it comes to the youth fifty percent around fifty percent of all the youth in spain don't have a job also we're getting reports that around two million spaniards are really dependent on state pensions and food. banks and so on which is also applying pressure on the economy at same time of the troika of the international creditors and brussels they are calling for more job cuts for more reductions of salaries and at the same time they're not promising any improve. and with the economy economy in the next four years which obviously is only aggravating the situation and he's even making these thousands of people more angry or do you go to peace kind of force their down to other news crimean self-defense forces have reportedly taken full control of an air base near the crimean city of sevastopol home went to russia's black sea fleet these are pictures from earlier there you go
7:04 pm
showing a v. entrance to the military base crimean forces are now said to be escorting the ukrainian military from the premises meanwhile 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. now since crimea has officially become part of russia all ukrainian military stationed there have been offered a choice they can either become russian citizens and to join the local forces or leave the region but for those from crimea who are serving in ukraine returning home is now a difficult task because the every day he says to me mom we're on high and there aren't that depend on us for transfer and i asked him how much longer they have to say he says they're not saying where did kept in the dark while i was children of their guardian military equipment fully armed for home but my son calls me and
7:05 pm
tells me that they are not being sad summarize and a piece of bread and that soul food they are getting every day the east of ukraine remains restive with scores taking to the streets to protest against the new government which they do not recognize as legitimate just this saturday march through the city of done yet demanding that the ousted president be reinstalled some of them also called for an independence referendum of their own like the one in crimea ryan o'neal reports now from daniel's. 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 call that he was ousted by the crew imposed government in kiev thousands of people gathered on the square and eventually marched on the use of them in the streets of building out with it and 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 do not choose the authorities in kiev but also that the
7:06 pm
authorities in kiev don't seem to be listening to what's what we've been trying to say for a number of weeks now here in the east of the country are you not as 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 in the good you let's again call visions on the gypsum as president we are against the interim self-proclaimed leaders who grasps power let me explain yes please that no one is listening so i don't have a leader to help us achieve what we want so far and what we want is freedom and not sixty across children and our future. and their 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 seems like we've just heard about in don you have scavenged become a frequent in many other eastern cities protesters have been gathering in the
7:07 pm
streets there as well voicing concerns over the neo nazi leanings of the new authorities meanwhile evil leaders have been turning a blind eye to the far right gaining influence in kiev instead they have been focusing on punishing moscow for its actions in crimea brussels already sanctioned a number of authorities and is now looking at how to reduce its reliance on russian gas william mallinson is a former british diplomat and a professor at the greek state university he believes not all voices within the european union are 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 would go so there's a lot of the important economic sectors in some european countries actually are beginning to depend especially in the end 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
7:08 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. now the main accusation against moscow is that western authorities see it as an annexation of the crimean peninsula this is despite the fact that people very voted overwhelmingly to join russia and of the referendum itself was proposed by the local government maritime security professor and acclaimed russian historian chris bellamy believes that the vote was fair and transparent. the western media and western politicians have i think taken the you create the ukrainian government toward the interim government's 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's certainly
7:09 pm
was not so as david cameron said to the power of the of a gun in the way even though some crimean talks as ukrainians boycotted 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. washington has also dismissed crimea as a joining of russia and is going against international law that is as u.s. authorities have recognized the new government in kiev as legitimate branding the change of power spearheaded by nationalist radicals as a democratic process r.t. as an associate you're going to 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
7:10 pm
forcibly seizes the territory over another incidentally behind this noble statement is the number one med learn internal affairs of other nations is an example of what is known as the arab spring is. said of destruction achieving political throw having fired this throwing 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 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 hand to. coincidentally u.s.
7:11 pm
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 foot 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 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 growth a popular joke among let the 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
7:12 pm
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 party washington d.c. honestly she is a father vitaly churkin is russia's envoy to the united nations and he has become the target of heated criticism by c.n.n. anchor christiane amanpour after did not agree to appear on her show she lashed out at him and even made it personal. how people like churkin feel they don't we have to leave their. own daughter is the u.s. space for russia today in new york she's shown his state department spokesman jen psaki. and in the pond she's even reported on her own father. now the russian ambassador did not appreciate the dragging of his daughter into the case and wrote

7:18 pm
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 develop a little while what was this was a communist back to the referendum for scotland implantable that he won well you know normally there is a plan of work for him to. leave the form of the man during the rule and various we're going to have things. why in short time around stalled if you can be there's a reason why there was no preparation you look to. your reality. well of course we've got plenty more stories for you on our website including new leaks on surveillance practices according to a handful of screenshots published by a news portal the n.s.a. hacked to the administrators that oversee private computer networks plots. through

study or not to study u.k. god. i'm an estimate so that around forty five percent of graduates will be unable to pay back of their loans got the full story at r.t. dot com. in addition to the loan problems that some students may face another issue universities are considered a place where people from all over the world come to gain it knowledge and share ideas they are not usually a place for immigration controls or checkpoints in an open letter published in the guardian newspaper school officials say they are being forced to share their students' immigration records with the home office parties publica has the details . 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
7:20 pm
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 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
7:21 pm

7:25 pm
a combination of factors that are political but i think it's in the long term it's going to backfire on. a party. when we have these types of undemocratic action proclamations coming out of countries that have good relations with the kind of response. 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 in terms of the recent developments around in ukraine. well coming up after the break it is the v kaiser report right here on the international stay with us.
7:26 pm
we wanted to create a realistic movie that would represent life that would depicts life as it really is . there's an accident on route six. what can be will wonderful than this the whole thing is a model. for
7:27 pm
the. down the. radio. things are. very serious. now i.
7:28 pm
believe. welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser it was u.k. budget week and. big news for bank of players the chancellor have the tax on being go profits to ten percent and bingo lingo this would be a jump and john have droopy drawers to google docs quack quack comes to her. yes in 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 chancellor said the
7:29 pm
cut was prompted by the fact that the number of bingo halls had plummeted by three quarters 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 because of the whoa this is just failing to resuscitate what is a con of being more a bond with excessive debt due to speculation and misplaced 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.
7:30 pm
but it's also important and bingo lingo to when you shout out the numbers to get the numbers right because you don't want to call out the wrong number in 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 in the united states had 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. timeframe than expected now i'm still thinking about this bingo thing you know i think i got it now the tories the tough power basically their perception of the working class here in britain are people buying beers and playing bingo that's the perception of the working class so to piece these folks they're
7:31 pm
getting the p.r. off on the beer and give some on an industry that's in decline bingo but this is the perception this is what they this is the. looking glass mosquita 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 labor 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 moved down on that 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
7:32 pm
crash markets then rates will be cheaper to make it easier to crash markets yes i mean regarding the bingo even the big o. 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's like it's a forty million pound industry who knows it's like not it's like pocket change right it's not a very huge industry here and in terms of their american bingo you know actually their taxes are about the same as what the bingo is it's twenty percent capital gains but she should have used this term instead of six months she should've said chopsticks which is the bingo link somebody said that would have been more missing but also would it confuse because member 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 they 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
7:33 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 fed with graft from rome of what mark would lose j.p. morgan. so basically they got rid of forward guidance they did it here as well and 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 its 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 as a flawed measure of the actual health of the job market the fed opted to phase out
7:34 pm
the numerical threshold so it's called qualitative guidance. well the markets are addicted to cheap money and you know the fed under tillett of greenspan bernanke they would rate 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 exam 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
7:35 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 enter 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 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
7:36 pm
conditions indicators of inflation. rashers and inflation expectations and readings on financial developments i get it click tickettyboo makes no sense it's like george osborne 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
7:37 pm
most important economic chart and this is productivity per output per hour that's the blue line and the red line is median family real income the chart shows that productivity or output per hour of work has quadrupled since one thousand nine hundred seven in the united states they gave some productivity were quite widely shared from ninety 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 so productivity gains are shared in that purchasing power was maintained so that you would work more and you could buy more stuff with
7:38 pm
a dollar that was tied to something tangible now starting in one nine hundred 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 end of month as you could before meanwhile the asset prices that are owned by those who are engineering this divorced from gold into fee out the assets they go like the fine art and. shut in france and london real estate continue to go up in value exponentially so i can once again you create this apartheid economic apartheid using productivity in a sole aisha's matter that makes no sense with an underlying economic understanding of how the business climate works you miss quote g.d.p. you could c.p.i.
7:39 pm
and you present as osborne does or as somebody in the united states does a completely false picture of the economy to benefit the few to the expense of the rest of this been going on for twenty years it's getting worse but it's also that dichotomy the difference between say being gold ingo fed speak so bankers and the financial trying natural sort of experts know the real number i know like stop farting is eighty three. up forty is eighty three that's going to let go you're supposed to call back who me what do i got to get done with 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. as that the likes of janet yellen are saying like we're going to use qualitative set of quantitative productivity the number increase is there were people working more
7:40 pm
hours for the same especially so there's a whole 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 present population of the world the u.s. who is building private prisons now at a furious pace or will about about to the u.k. because a prison business is a profitable 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. who made all right stacy we got to go thanks i'm going to but. actually it all right said to have the second half of all of our.
7:41 pm
well come to let's run siberian. what are the places you never go to. fun.

7:43 pm
back to the kaiser report imax keyser time now to turn to egon von briards managing director of matter hard asset management and desert gonna walk into the kaiser apart thank you great great to be here all right you've got we've just had some pronouncements from janet yellen and the fed there's always an interesting connection between what she says in 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 bernanke 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 times going back and seeing gold goes down every
7:44 pm
time and often quite substantially around the fed 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 and then buying back again ok you just said something there you said that tapering won't last now just to give it remind people that tapering is i mean the quantitative easing was aside to have the fed buying back all these bonds as effectively monetizing the debt and now this is going on for a while people are asking what i'm 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 they believe that like the president that the u.s. economy is booming and that things are going to get only better. won't happen the
7:45 pm
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 so they won't survive without either but they will just kick the can down the road so so the fed will continue to print money that might be tapering from for another couple of months but there ofter there will be events that will nessa tate necessitate the fed. printing money at an accelerated rate in my view how would you compare let's say what's going on in the fed the 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 u.s. very similar it owed them and 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
7:46 pm
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 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. hawke housing market is booming that will last are there ok egon basically if if correct me if i'm wrong but over there matt hart asset management in switzerland the firm that you run that you're the chairman of the goal is wealth preservation and the medium for this is gold so gold not necessarily for trade gold and as
7:47 pm
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 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 about a on a thirty to fifty percent hole so obviously everybody didn't put fifty percent in we have clients who have hundred percent in gold almost and we have clients five attent 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 and undivided as it was pretty easy now.
7:48 pm
will 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 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 and that will continue yellow will continue as the column do anything else all right i want to run in deficit budget deficits run budget deficits for over fifty years there and 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
7:49 pm
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 they really focus on price i want to introduce this concept price versus availability idea here is that when the time comes when you really need your gold because of the banking system collapse from all this shit. again there might not be gold available for you at any price if you know i'm getting at and i know as there are 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 this is 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
7:50 pm
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 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 comix will be able to deliver either the futures market we took a million banks h.s.b.c. j.p. morgan correct and others they're saying they don't have the gold they say they have exactly they don't have the gold and the central banks 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 ice and days of their gold and it's in asia. it's in asia because what happened especially when gold feather 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
7:51 pm
gold price so that the bullion banks could fill up their holes what happened instead is that because normally everything that million banks when they bought buy and sell the gold stays with them the buy in the senators will goes with them central banks you know the a.t.f. that cetera as it happened now. 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.
7:52 pm
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 does not do so to be there is so the world sadly. coming from switzerland when i started working in switzerland 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
7:53 pm
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 dollar will be the first one. so i believe is only a matter of time before us you say china russia is set up for some of the the wonderful weapon that russia has now is just to stop using dollars altogether in 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 they try to trying to herd about currency wars so you're saying that in a currency war a loss on this kind of 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
7:54 pm
trading in it but once they stop trading it in china and russia will be the first countries to stop trading and it is 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 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 empire is about to collapse and then when the price it's new york it's comebacks you see a big dump every single day on it to me that's a clear sign of manipulation it's not price discoveries price manipulation you know your thoughts 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 with the amount of gold to work in this case paper gold of course is not a physical that they die when them and manipulate because they're just you know if
7:55 pm
you would loose a fortune every time you do it so many patients there are many people you chris paul of and others who are you know more experts in this than i am but it's absolutely clear this manipulation goes get it why do they do it well because first of all because they haven't got the goal they have so they actually don't 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 two hundred and thirty today that trend will continue because it only does it to reflect the destruction of paper money. all right fair enough you got on price thanks so much for being on the concert report ok so pleasure to be here max thanks very much and that's going
