from moscow to the globe this is our international my names you know neil welcome to the program our top story this hour following the arrest of several human rights activists in turkey the german foreign ministry is threatening to rethink economic relations and relations between the two countries continued to plunge to new lows with more peter all of. what we have seen and what's triggered this latest flare up which has prompted the foreign minister to cut short his holiday come back to berlin an issue which is quite a strong statement from zig mar gabriele steerforth we have to rethink opposition towards turkey the situation in turkey is not transparent we should call it for what it is we're waiting for ankara to return to european values and it all came about following the arrest of peter now he's
a human rights console tinti was arrested in turkey along with the director of amnesty international turkey it del s. and four others they have been accused of aiding and being part of helping a armed terrorist organization that hasn't been named as it stands at the moment now that prompted this statement from sigma gabriele to the german people warning them of potential risks of travel to turkey suggesting that they could be potential targets while they're there he's also made some recommendations towards businesses advising against investing in turkey he said that there was no legal certainty in the country at the moment and that x. appropriations had already taken place and he couldn't warn against them taking place it again in the future of the german chancellor angela merkel spokes person has described the whole predicament we're in at the moment is serious signs that
this is the latest in deepening crisis between in and just recently and it's still ongoing at the moment there was the crisis over the incirlik air base the german lawmakers from the bundestag wanted to go and visit that air base they were told repeatedly that they couldn't and that prompted the german defense ministry to move those aircraft from that base in incirlik in turkey over to jordan well there are strong economic and social links between germany and turkey at the moment both the diplomatic links between the two countries well they're pretty much is low as they can get. well i discussed the issue with a former turkish foreign minister who say above all economic relations between the countries will suffer tension of course is going up unfortunately and the. statement made by mr the third
shows that germany is planning to bring the. even to a higher level and of course the comic suffered from it because when there are. four german fifty there's not to mention that the businessmen will not go through the. german news one of the countries that has huge investment in turkey if. the turks economy will suffer a few turkey's human rights record of course is not the best present turkey was not part of democracy but since last year's attempted coup. things are going. down. the american military say it's concern for the safety of its troops after
a turkish news agency released them up showing the location of u.s. bases in northern syria in a comment to r.t. the u.s. central command said that the sources which contributed to the story cannot be independently verified adding that it would be very concerned if officials from its nato ally would purposefully in danger forces by releasing such sensitive information following that story for us nichiren. this is how america's military presence in northern syria allegedly looks now according to turkish state news agency on the dollar it claims to have detected america's hidden outposts scattered across kurdish held areas the agency reports there are as many as ten including two air bases one in army leon which is large enough for cargo planes and used to supply kurdish forces and another inherent hit which is slightly smaller reportedly used by military helicopters there's also said to be eight more military points
which it's claimed are used to house military consultants operational planning offices and units to engage in active conflicts plus the equipment cap that allegedly includes artillery batteries rocket launchers and all made vehicles with the turkish news agency revealing washington's active operations in a war zone in thirty much detail with accurate or not it's likely upsetting for the us and course the pows that ally the discussion of specific troop numbers and locations would provide sensitive tactical information to the enemy which could in danger coalition and partner force we respectfully request that you refrain from disseminating any information we chose not to disseminate all the details listed by the antelope agency like the number of u.s. special forces and strategic talks of the outposts arguably a bigger question here is not about the publications accuracy but rather why would
turkey want to undermine its ally by revealing potentially dangerous details of its secret military bases well perhaps it has something to do with the location of these bases which form within the region controlled by the kurdish militia a group the u.s. considers to be a key ally in the fight against eisel but one which turkey deems as terrorists probably the turks are doing this and thinking down the same line in response to this event. i think that you know we can tamper with turkish interests probably the turks are thinking well we could probably get it to be a challenge for the american administration and other nato allies if you're not for a fully respected as of member then probably we should rethink this with a ship in a sense threatening need to stability now turkey regularly slams the u.s. over its support for the kurds but now by revealing this sensitive information it appears ankara is using more direct tactics to strike back at its nato ally.
europe experiences a surge in migrant arrivals many are raising concerns over how it's being called italy which is currently accepting most of the newcomers sees it doesn't have the resources to cope it in spain activists protested against refugee policies and violations of their human rights while in greece and angry demonstrations has been held against delays in the immigration process. well about one hundred refugees on migrants protested outside the german embassy and often use the delays have left flowers and separated from their families and run didn't waste divisions between different ethnic groups of all to be emerging in the overcome overcrowded count.
everything. problem which is there for. most of the city just waiting for the decisions. african people sometimes if they are just says for the fight saying they want to get their rights by their hand and floyd's some of the. by someone who they consider serious syrian people they can get assigned him quickly and just not true it would be. not only funky spots of.
people coming from africa feeling neglected when they are arrived suddenly they faced the. different treatment because of their skin and skin color or because of different other variables when you feel that not receiving your interview in a couple of months but in four five six months that you're seeing that there's a longer rejection rate for your community or for the group of people you are from your attention and your frustration raises. meanwhile italy has been desperately calling for help saying it feels isolated and abandoned by other e.u. members the blockhouse however repeatedly voice that's readiness to help but it seems italy's patience is rapidly running out as the. reports. the city of messina is the beginning of the main ferry transit route to mainland italy there you have it there are more and more migrants filling the local streets and there are no solutions coming from the central government and the european union brussels
has been voicing repeated the reading is to help but italy says that saying something is different from actually providing real solutions and getting things done we need a unity of purpose international regional effort and this is why the union continues to work with the quartet for libya to darren t. that there is unity in approach. in europe is to me to lead to the location from we are continuing to push because in europe you know particularly you can actually in general the only thing that counts is. italy has threatened the you with issuing temporary visas for migrants which will allow free travel all around europe and that will be of course a thorn in the side of the breaking numbers of migrants and refugees have been arriving in the country in the recent months since january it's really has received
more than eighty thousand refugees but those are just official estimates the numbers may actually be much higher and that led to unprecedented measures by the government for example restrictions on n.g.o.s that are trying to rescue the refugees that are coming from north africa on boats and also even leading to closures of course here in sicily locals who are getting increasingly fed up with the situation there saying that responsibility must be shared i believe that welcoming people is the right thing but the european union must pay more attention to this phenomenon and support italy in this enormous effort social integration for the. people is a must but the e.u. cannot just look at it from afar it needs to get involved and not abandon italy and sicily in particular. yes we feel abandoned i believe that the european union should really focus on its lizzi shoes especially on the issues that affect the
south of italy we have been welcoming italians are true europeans sicilians have been welcoming and supportive for years but we are not willing to be the fools of europe the e.u. has left us alone this is our country we will try in every way possible to block this arrogance and the selfishness which is not european after a serious of protests in the region mayors of local towns around messina have decided to gather at the municipality behind my back to find solutions to the crisis there's a glimmer of hope that this can be done or a lack of action could lead to more protests here and also in the towns around the city. president trumps getting record low ratings among our stories after the break we'll look at why the polls often seem to be so wide the mark.
i really think that liberal democracy is in deep trouble to do liberal democratic politicians that sort of created their own. what matters and they're leaving out more and more in a nod to the store the sense i would say liberal democracy has really reached its limits. called the future we don't need. every the world should experience.
and you get the old. the old according to just. come along for the ride. now the polls make gloomy reading for donald trump after learning that his approval ratings are the worst of any president in the past seventy years but political polls being proved fairly wide of the mark in several countries recently kill a buck and explains how best to interpret the numbers. we're six months into donald trump's presidency and the pollsters tell us that his ratings have tanked but these pollsters don't exactly have the best record remember what they said right before the election most polls give clinton a better chance of winning than slide for hillary all the major electoral map forecasters show hillary clinton winning the election. day trumped
by the conventional wisdom and all expectations polls showed hillary clinton was the favorite to win and they weren't wrong in the sense that hillary clinton did win the popular vote through the polls were wrong about this race the entire time warps why are american pollsters getting things so wrong and can you read between the lines to get a more accurate picture here are some helpful tips posed in america made out to look precise and definitive. so is there something we're missing to understand any poll you first need to know who's taken it. recent surveys in the u.s. seem to have picked out maybe democratic votes is leaving the republican voice behind but reports suggest americans are equally divided when it comes to party affiliation so what should we be looking for response rates or the actual number of people who've taken the pope over the last two decades in the u.s. fewer people seem to be interested in getting their opinions out to post is meaning
the blanks to fill in for them based on probability and relying on factors like political preference and polish choices. that leaves us with something referred to as a sampling error which can be anything from one to five percent still a sizable number of possible mistakes. so now you know you pose shouldn't be taken at face value. some american pollsters even admit that they're having trouble getting things right you really don't have to justify it when you are the network and you have millions of viewers a.b.c. washington post c.b.s. new york times whatever you know that big into that whole release are an automatic several million viewers that poll is going to be discussed other networks is going to be picked up by the associated press and so. you can be careless and get away with it next time you see a catchy headline based on
a poll do the work the media doesn't want you to do read between the lines ok what mop and r.t. new york. the b.b.c. is facing a backlash after its annual eight week classical music morath and struck a controversial political chord twice in just a couple of days the first came when the pianist performed beethoven's ode to joy the e. hughes famous and then there was this speech by one of the problems conductors. ice . tendencies and the nationalists in it it's a very narrow sense is something that is very dangerous and can only be fought with really good trade accident on the education of the new generation of a huge generation they have to understand their grief and germany
and france and then mark have all the something in common called european culture. or reaction swiftly followed with many criticizing the b.b.c. on the promise for turning the event into a political platform one music commentator said it will tarnish the event's reputation and nigel farage the former u.k. independence party leader called it lunacy here's what another party member had to say it's well known that the b.b.c. is fundamentally against breck's it's always has been always will be we need to check we need to actually evaluate where that the b.b.c. is achieving its purpose which is to disseminate the news and events that statement instead of being what it is now a political organization if it wants to be a political organization then that's fine but it shouldn't sixpack the united kingdom search area to pay for it needs to raise its own revenue if it wants to do
that if it wants to be a voice of the nation then you know we can do show not while it's it's a political organization and this is. the b.b.c. has responded saying the promise is not a political platform but it's the artist's right to speak to an audience about it was a personal artistic decision. clashes have erupted in bethlehem between palestinian protesters and is really police after the west bank fatah leadership called for a day of rage tensions are been running high in east jerusalem the old city over the last couple of days ortiz polis leader brings us the details. some of those clashes have also been taking place in the old city of jerusalem and the surrounding arab neighborhoods israeli police have been in point why it control measures now they've been using stun grenades they've been dragging protesters away
protestors in response have been throwing several objects various objects at the police themselves and dozens of people are reported to have been injured yesterday was declared a day of rage by the palestinian fatah faction and thousands of palestinians converged on the old city of jerusalem now all of this violence was sparked by a deadly shootout on friday in which two israeli security officers were killed by israeli arabs since then israel has closed most of the entrances to the al aqsa mosque and has reopened several but those that it has reopened it is opened with metal detectors now palestinians say that this is an infringement on the right of freedom to worship they are also concerned that israel might be trying to change the status quo now the israelis and jordanians are in talks the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said repeatedly that he has no intention to change the status quo and we also know that the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has
urged to calm the situation but this is a hugely volatile area and many are bracing for more violence particularly ahead of a call tomorrow that has gone out by the jerusalem top muslim cleric and he has called for. to remain closed and supposed to make their way to the compound so we are expecting another day of rage and potential clashes tomorrow friday. electronically tagging homeless people so access to their every move can be tracked using a paid up sounds like a fearsome glimpse into an oppressive future but it's happening right now in london the man behind it is an often car danish artist. in central london during a photo shoot. look a little more. look more. if you are angry in your eyes. the new they don't do anything for you you take the. next big thing you know you
make me famous. well it works by giving the homeless a tracking device access to its data and images are then sold for tens of thousands of pounds to anyone who wants to watch them at any time half the money goes to each homeless volunteer there every day struggles also get splashed across the web on social networks the intention is to shine a light on poverty in an age when anything can be bought on our lives or always on show. and i love the fact that the buyers are part of the project and it creates awareness and it turns to problem upside down and make fun of it and they can sit in the ferrari or whatever and they can look free i am at the guys in the park now it's november it's cold it worries me that frightens me chasing some sensational you'd have had to lie that he is using and from abusing the vulnerable just as a product as a commodity to some unknown person and slave the abused them and i don't see
what the end point is how the benefit will be for the homeless person like in all good business deals everyone gets. walked away from with a good sense so the homeless gets fifty percent of all after all expenses but only if they stay a year in the project and fill up the application in the country. in no way what i class what he's doing something you have to call when you've got such. an imbalance and somebody puts in somebody who's vulnerable and needy and somebody who's got a lot of money you know if there was inequality fine you know if you had twenty five thousand and i had twenty five thousand and i want to buy you for a year we can strike a deal but as soon as you've got an inequality and it's honest. developments by the minute i was always on our twitter feed you can give r.t. a follow life from all over the globe you're with r t international.
social about whether it's a store of value or a means of payment and as a means of payment it hasn't really caught on the number of retailers actually in the world it's something big oil has dropped according to a morgan stanley report but as a store of value it's caught on spectacularly people see this as a safe haven currency. you mentioned six thirty five if you have a career and career involves using your life a little in your computer and things like that in an office. perhaps you sort of
get things going it's a circular. you could have to stop doing all of this i mean this kind of you lou the minutes must be from my world became smaller and smaller and smaller until i ended up winning it in a box. very strong magnetic field on my field in my head. think of it like a real hard pressure my skin burned and that wireless access point. just continues on saying with our students in the schools. we are just continually baiting our citizens in this microwave radiation it is certainly electro small and it's getting worse. all. there. are a. lot
of welcome to worlds apart just a few years ago the long running dispute between a globalist and statists in exhausted the world was fast becoming a global village or rather a constellation of global cities but down in the u.k. voted for bracks it's the united states offset that donald trump is for all kill becoming the new global well to discuss that i'm now joined by. a famous american sociologist professor sussman it's great to have you on the show thank you very much for your time that this is a great introduction to the well i hope you will be even more instituted by the questions my first question is actually about the figure that i mentioned mr trump i've seen that you've given the number of venture into your analysis of factors that you thing led to his election as president and i noticed that. at least i
couldn't find a single article in which you would put his election squarely on the russian mad. enough to see you sidestepping the russian. side sidestepping the russian factories one way of putting it but i just have trouble once you enter a certain usually political system in the united states to actually be confident that what i'm reading about all the discussions that are happening that they're actually getting at the heart of the matter so the question of russian interference for me also resonates with the question of american interference i grew up in latin america and the americans were always interested in me do you think this interfering factory really matters as as far. analyzing the phenomenon that chump represents whether or not there was any interference no i don't seem so and that is
why i also have not bothered too much on the one hand it's a familiar thing that foreign governments will interfere and secondly when is the russians and the americans or both interfere in central but i think what really matters is that there is a character of the policy it's that it's presenting sociology i think is a very interpretive filled and political sociology is even more so people when people vote for somebody they do not necessarily on board for that person's ideas they i think although i vote on the emotional level that's right what do you think the american public was trying to articulate plan so many people prefer tromped yeah well i see. this one particular moment off a trajectory a history that's trying to very long time ago and in a way it starts in the 1980's when we go global we have been global for a very long time by the way but when certain.
