italy has been under huge pressure and is now asking for more decisive action from the e.u. usual thora who's. in crisis. correspondent paula do pinsky travel to the italian island of sicily which has been one of the main points of arrival for african migrants as you talk to locals who say they all fed up with the inaction of europe so authorities. this is one of the many.
brings rescued migrants from the mediterranean sea to ports like this one here in sicily and for many of those migrants this would be the first time on european soil but the italian authorities say there's so many migrants coming here to italy that they might have to close the ports to microchips like this. was a rather eat meat size it's only been well but the sheer volume of things just landed and it's now having to come to be cheeky here on the island sicily and people on this island say they feel abandoned by the. local who are that it is not just the responsibility of italy is the responsibility of europe there is far too much immigration it's really cannot support arriving migrants but in the end of it they do nothing because their bullets just don't work. but they run have to have
italy where bearing the financial burden. to ease the state's front seem to do their part in helping the mind around because prime minister gentle and everyone turns away and pretends not to see what to do nothing is wrong europe needs to help out the european union has provided financial aid to it says it's not enough and now e.u. may kiss of said that they cools italy open up the ports along the mediterranean coast such as say. in barcelona in spain but that is likely to be met with great resistance in both countries and some people suggest that the european commission is saying is little more than. some countries need to do more to do their share in distributing the refugees poland hungary and the trip. republik have not accepted
a single refugee from italy. unfortunately we have no progress on the question of distribution of migrants within the european union invalid mostly stand in solidarity with the italian government and the italian people and we will make available possible assistance and support it seems there's a lot of but very little action from the powers that be in a europe and in the meanwhile the to be this continue to sing and the strain of the likely crisis charlotte people ski r.t. sicily and while italy says it's tired of bearing the brunt of migrants french police have been using drones and dogs to hunt down those trying to slip over the border from italy to france in super university history professor paolo but i beanies says it's time for italy's european partners to do more to deal with this crisis. bearable. terrible situation has been left alone that legally isn't now is not is not able to deal with these and more these
great. amount of the local population and the local population is really admire the with the government first and with a new pm you you know it's a whole lot i don't see the european union will be acting in a corporate the way they you should have done the more i should have done more i know glamorizing is system acceptance or system of if you'll go and control of the african cause so we have a find a solution which might be radical solution to see it off the ports closed the paulson people. for you when's chemical weapons watchdog has published a report into a deadly chemical incident and seriously province and while it doesn't attribute blame that's not stopped western officials from renewing their accusations towards the syrian government it also turns out the o.p.c. w. didn't even visit the site. of the alleged attack and washington caleb maupin
reports we've been waiting for this for months in lib province back in april the chemical attack triggered all kinds of accusations and allegations but not many answers but now we have the seventy eight page report from the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog so did we get those answers first of all the investigators never actually visited the site of the chemical weapons attack in question the illiad province where the attack took place is not in an area under the control of the government so it wasn't safe to go there and that raises another question u.n. officials said the report was carried out in full compliance with the guidelines but the guidelines clearly state that they must visit the site where it happened so their conclusions were based on interviews they did with people claiming to be victims as well as samples they received from n.g.o.s like the white helmets a group with a dubious reputation now the report doesn't even give a hint as to how the chemical agent was dispersed this lack of information prompted
a strong response from russia's foreign minister at the news that supposedly should you should be organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has been absent unintelligibly it refused to go to the scene of the incident and did not provide any information yesterday. says the not convinced. which was apparently found was dropped from those don't know where the sun came from and throughout these months tensions have been inflamed now the report was never intended to establish who carried out the attack that's being left to another group of investigators but this hasn't stopped western leaders from reeling in their old mantra absolute. points but sad regime and we've got a european council coming up where we will drive on with the u.k. campaign to impose sanctions on those responsible the us has already brought out sanctions on three hundred. as
a result of this people who drop chemical weapons all innocent people should be held to account we know that assad has used chemical weapons on his own people and he's done that repeatedly including it states against the world that including women and children is fiction and we have all seen that we've all seen the video and there is no debate about that so once again we've got more questions and no definitive answer but for some people that just doesn't matter caleb r.t. washington d.c. we discussed the findings of the report with russia's representative to the un's nuclear watchdog. there are expressions in the suit like the team was on the table all the little so all of these. daunting force of all we were unable to hold will determine where. the feel cool says
so the. teacher called the. side the. axis you'll force beatles were there with three we can't books in just three. these missions is the mission so. just the serious and perfect sections to put it mildly. there is a mission and that is these are people that. it was impossible to implement the chain not past the point the key. for samples from the schools and these is very hidden but. which remains a bit of something. you can do by somebody more useful and been brought by somebody and they just absolutely no evidence cole it was
a deal with. another case of police brutality has been hitting the headlines in america a softer video most of an officer in atlanta beating a suspect he claimed was about to smoke a crack pipe however no drug or powerful area was found on the victim to warn you you may find the following photo. i. was. told. the incident happened just over a week ago video shows the officer punching the back of the man's head while he's being held down the police are called into the incident claims the suspect had resisted arrest for possessing a pack by now atlanta's police chief says the situation was avoidable the officer has been placed on administrative leave for twenty days but activists say that it's disrespectful to the victim. twenty days a suspension certainly kicks justice in the eye and definitely is
a insult to the victim the officers alleging that they saw our our client above to smoke crack however during the occupation and even after there was never any narcotics or no crack cocaine follow and i think it's important to note that this officer has a history and reputation on beating on people in the also as our report he said that they tried to use the taser and so when you use a taser to be in it was dean non-effective what makes you think that your hands are sufficient that makes no sense and so there's a lot of inconsistencies i don't accuracies with the police officer's testimony and what was in the report and so the video speaks for itself these days incidents of police brutality that are increasingly being caught on camera. thank. you all right. or you. know you can see right here you can't.
this is a culture that happens in policing and it must be addressed a lot of times along force when they had them versus us mentality or we're above or better than most people like you know when it as it pertains to law and so long for some it officers are not the law they don't get to be become the judge the jury in executing right that's not their job their job is to enforce the law the chief of police is their responsibility to come out and say hey we got it wrong but we're willing to correct the issue this is also international thanks for joining us so far for the program here german m.p.'s. new in oregon so-called fake news as a violation of free speech details in just a moment. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around
core. corporations from washington to washington controls the media the media. voters elect. to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime is it. who did it where did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks i mean you've mentioned one across the recent run somewhere attack it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything.
i said joining us new german legislation branding both fake news and online terrorist propaganda as criminal activity has been hit with a storm of criticism not least inside the country's parliament the green party has warned that social media may overregulate all the anti establishment alternative for germany party described it as a dark day for journalism a european digital rights group even issued an open letter before the legislation was passed claiming the bill breaches new laws. as more of the consequences of. germany has approved a bill to find social media networks up to fifty million euros if they fail to remove what's described as obviously illegal content hate speech terrorist propaganda and defamatory fake news freedom of speech and criminal begins the
initiative ends the internet law of the jungle fine flagging up terrorist propaganda is fairly obvious but determining what's hate speech and the truth behind media outlets accused of fake news is anything but ever wonder what fic news and i am not going to give you a push and you are straight do headlines and zoom zoom in the guardian very effective this whole notion of election voting fraud this is fake news. today fake sites boortz trolls can falsify viewpoints the russian government also created and spread fake news and conspiracies across the social media landscape as for hate speech different countries have different laws what germany might consider hate another nation might consider opinion the german bill offers this guideline social platforms have to ban what's obviously illegal but obvious for whom germany's bill is part of a wider trend an austrian court ordered facebook to remove hate speech posts
against one of the country's politicians not only in austria but worldwide and canada's top court ruled google can remove entire websites from its global search engines following one complex case so it seems in this online age borders don't matter the boundaries still do and when some government seek to impose their own lore on the internet they're disregarding other borders with their own version of what's obviously illegal the new rules mean companies will have twenty four hours to remove the content facebook is already hiring more people to check flag posts but with billions of users there are concerns that web giants in general may be overwhelmed by the comply. we reached out to facebook for comment the company told us legislation is the wrong way to fight online hate speech with regulation threatening to remove content that is not actually illegal we discuss the issue with mattel your book meaning of political activist groups shout out u.k.
he believes the law risks leading to censorship. everywhere you look on the internet there is how each beat hate speech for defamation law and those kind of things but there is a problem when you start to try and tell private enterprise corporations to try and do it and then there's also this issue that you've got to find what it is you know for someone hate speech maybe actually true for all vice versa you know how do you define what actually is a reality in every single newspaper or news network out of the sun has a slant of some kind or another part of the problem where you've got a government which is essentially trying to do that for the people who are saying well this is this we don't regard as new so we're going to get rid of that for you we're going to get rid of that and you need to watch this kind of news and i look at it only fru fru this kind of lens now becomes quite dangerous by essentially censorship you can call it regulation you can call it whatever you want but the reality is essentially a ship because you are censoring a certain point of view or a certain set of knew when i was
a shit just because you don't deem them as as fair or or factually correct the establishment is worried about the internet you know the internet is this one place where everybody everybody in the world can essentially have a voice they see that as as the centralized they see it as almost anarchic and for that i think it scares them. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared iran to a school this in remarks about the country's nuclear disarmament. the topic of the rainy and regimes compliance with its international obligations reminds me of the fable. of the scorpion and the frog. the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the river the frog quite rationally asks how do i know you won't sting me and the scorpion replies because it would kill both of us we'd both drown . so the frog is convinced he lets the scorpion get on its back and starts across
the river but sure enough midway through the scorpion stings him with his last breath the frog asked why and the scorpion replies because it's in my nature. the secretary general's report is filled with devastating evidence of the nature of the iranian regime when we're talking about international agreements and enforcement when we're talking about the potential. of prosecuting through military means and the like. these little metaphorical parable references lose their there is this is serious business here so when it comes to international diplomacy but it comes with the possibility of sanctions when it comes to the possibility theoretically of war i would prefer lay off the metaphor in the parable and the simile and let's be
very very clear and also never overreact always look for a peaceful peaceful interpretation and a peaceful outcome i hope not the first time top american officials have used this type of rhetoric when describing other nations the former director of u.s. national intelligence james clapper has been fairly outspoken about russians and suppose in genetics in the past the historical practices of the russians who typically. genetically driven to coopt. penetrate. to gain favor whatever is there any reason to believe that russia is not continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations or individuals or true or you would think it's in their d.n.a. . and i was critical of u.s. policies that could have been such rhetoric not only broad but inside america as well for example one of the country's most prominent authors unfamous
a ski explained on america how the un c.m. merican is a label is vasili used by politicians. suddenly critics of american empire or american capitalism got tarred with this at the american ism you know and american isn't a very interesting concept it's a concept that only exists and to turn states in the soviet union old soviet union you could be condemned for being the soviet the brazilian military dictatorship you could be brazilian but aside from the united states i don't know of any other. to. authoritarianism country with the concept even exist it's a very striking country concept if you're critical of policy you're anti american actually this has an interesting political origin. who is the. ultimate
ultimate evil in the bible he called the prophet. elijah to him and asked him why he is a hater of israel meaning condemning the evil that basic concept authority if you challenge authority you're opposed to the society the culture the community and so on. and that full interview touches on a multitude of topics the program later on saturday on r.t. america and after that available on our website dot com. so germany and chile will face off in the final of the football confederations cup in st petersburg on sunday at a news conference ahead of the game free for president jiang the infantino said the tournament i have been a great success i despite gloomy predictions from some. confederations cup here in
