we can all middle of the room sit. on the. pro independence protesters take to the streets of boston catalonia as national day just three weeks ahead of a secession referendum that's been banned by it. and security council set to vote on sanctions against north korea over its latest new clear test putin and anglo-american say the killing young exactions threaten peace and security. terrified regretful and looking for a way back home the families of suspected i still find tears away their fates in a refugee camp if he's among the first news networks to gain access to that.
the u.n. disasters to blur these women's faces not to reveal their names and most importantly not to tell anyone where they're being held. very good evening to you my name is neil harvey you're watching international. ok let's start this hour with live pitches these are coming from barcelona where pro independence protesters are demonstrating on what is catalonia is national day ahead of a secession referendum in just three weeks time journalist journalist releases. been following the protests for us in the council on capital. i. i knew
i knew this is a sea of people to square east full of people the. lines of the south we were close and nobody could pass from side to side of the screen because of the amount of people there were each year i mean for the in the band then peace movement it's been qualified already by some of the representatives quite a success there were they were estimating there would be five hundred thousand people just driving to the different stations we had prepared she so you're too far and in massive blast sign they were pretending to saw the wall between the industry to get out and get it out or. their estimate there might be up to one million equally if not surpassing the other broadest they were in the previous year.
the catalan government announced the referendum on september the sixth the very next day the spanish high court bans the move but the referendum will still be taking place at the start of next month catalonia insists that it will declare independence within forty eight hours if there is a yes vote but spain fears that the vote might not go through for several reasons if catalonia gains independence spain would lose almost seven percent of its territory and the richest part of that it will also lose over seven million people or a fifth of its tanks innings twenty percent of exports would also go as would want to spain's olympic medalists in addition catalonia a year round visitor attraction gets a quarter of all spain's tourists from independence feelings have been growing there for several years a protest has been pushing their message through colorful headline grabbing rallies .
now one point spanish lawmakers moved to a peace council only as nationalist sentiments by allowing the region special autonomy but when that was shot down by the constitutional court in twenty ten tensions came to the fore they grew worse still during the financial crisis where madrid rejected a play by the region to reduce its tax burden under system and redistribute wealth poorer regions to that madrid this continually rejected catalonia as efforts to hold an independence referendum with spanish courts ruling any such vote
unconstitutional. so that the shuffle scotland's radical independence campaign believes that europe is fragmenting due to major issues. sure that you're experiencing the area's forms of fragmentation and i think the root cause of this is the economic crisis of two thousand and eight as the steady to measures that we've seen tea place what's happening is that people are looking to have more control over the leaves are looking to have much more of a c. in terms of how their lives are run as straight back against what they see as corruption taking place at the highest levels of government and of course as a result of that often national movements and movements for independence can tap and to not take all that frustration tap into that take of energy and we saw that in twenty fourteen and scotland we see it now in catalonia all politics is unstable just no. u.n. security council is expected to vote on
a resolution on whether to impose even tougher sanctions on north korea following its latest nuclear test kalam open has the latest from new york. the world is watching the u.n. security council as people are aware north korea and the united states have been exchanging threats for the last few weeks and now north korea has tested a hydrogen bomb now at this point russia and china are calling for a diplomatic solution to the tensions on the korean peninsula and we've heard russian president vladimir putin speaking in a phone call with german chancellor merkel talk about how the actions of north korea may be threatening global security. who have strongly condemned young's violations of the u.n. security council's resolutions the need is new to these actions pose a serious threat to regional peace and security the leaders agreed to dissolution to the crisis can be reached through diplomatic means only for the resumption of
talks involving all interested parties now the first draft of the resolution that was proposed was rather harsh but we understand that a more mild version of this resolution will be put forward in the u.n. security council the first draft of the resolution called for an oil embargo which would essentially have outlawed and forbid any country from exporting oil or natural gas to the democratic people's republic of korea however the newer version of the resolution does not have an a full embargo but it simply caps the amount of oil and natural gas that the d.p. r. k. can import now the original draft that was circulated by the united states called for a specific targeting of kim jong un freezing his assets forbidding him from traveling however the new draft of the resolution that is being put forward at the u.n. security council does not specifically target the leader of the democratic people's republic of korea and the resolution goes on to support the six party talks so this
resolution which will go before the united nations security council there's a very good chance it could be passed by the security council now that it's been adjusted and it no longer. calls for a full oil and natural gas embargo. and it looks like the call for a diplomatic solution and negotiations and six party talks that has been the position of russia and china from day one seems to have prevailed we discuss the upcoming vote with craig earle him who senior market analyst at a wonder think it's imposed interest to return to the negotiating table and perhaps this is a sign that the u.s. is now willing to go down this route but ultimately it's going to be the responsibility of all the countries involved in order to achieve this not just the u.s. and not just of course north korea and china are both the of the two major players in this and let's be honest this is a strategic issue let's not pretend that this isn't a major factor in these negotiations this is
a major factor in the reason why the u.s. and russia and china are not necessarily on the same page that's why diplomatic solution is so important because the last thing we want it's not about escalation in tensions between the u.s. and north korea let's face it the last thing we want is the relationship between the u.s. and china and russia to fall apart because the more stable this relationship is the more stable the global environment of. more than a thousand wives and children of suspected eisel fighters awaiting their fate in a refugee camp in iraq after the terrorist groups have had major defeats auntie's among the first news networks to access the facility but in broad goes the event is the following reporter must warn you though it may contain some images you find disturbing. the more it. gets is china. because it's because it is such a dumb was a victim but also to the earlier this year this woman's husband was killed in mosul
he wasn't one of the good guys he was in a slum extinct fighter i simply had no it's not important i guess for that visit. with the full of that they had nowhere left to run the wives and children of presumed isis fighters finally surrendered the biggest concern now is safety and security the u.n. has asked us to blur these women's faces not to reveal their names and most importantly not to tell anyone where they're being held because isis so do a lot of hatred in iraq they spilled a lot of blood and there are people here who would come over just to throw a grenade across the fence we film these women. in order to avoid the necessary attention for their room safety the first thing many told us is that they never
wanted to be here in the first place. like the killing. them women have. conceded that pleasing many of the gun use english effectively teaches that with them they're not but. almost all of these woman a foreign as a dead giveaway isis encouraged bringing families over there terrified they fear the iraqi army they're even scared of aid workers and the goal is to. get. can someone. tell us. what you did with a new. system school just does the fact she's a national she gives out is the registrants unit known to china she didn't have to
have some of the bad ones on the any such as if she had said yes until a business and then your bill of us mostly just as if it's not pretty it's not. finite is it do you have my alice in the. hands not with. the woman we found russian speaking but the majority. there were also. blue eyed europeans africans. asians americans many iraqis see them as something alien too far gone. too deeply to forget the ideology. of people. that feel them.
to see if you think that i don't need love so i let you me i'm not a young person from pluckily. that much ok that. you have a problem is the kids there are families from dozens and dozens of different countries currently held by iraqi forces among them more than a thousand children and many of them orphans many will be able to tell you their names because of trauma or age and getting them out is paramount. to get that feeling. but for many. family aid groups including the un around the clock to establish identities but it's slow and dangerous work and falls to the
woman to contacts relatives let them know they're still alive inside it is my opinion. just as well as mist of the indian government in vietnam. was down on it but some of these women may be telling the truth and those may not they've broken laws just by being here some even took up. and it'll be up to cool it's in iraq in their home countries to establish guilt and the children they eat every century hostages in a war they don't even understand or i guess d.m. . from iraq ok i'll be back with more news after this very short break.
welcome back. miss america contest may have revealed that beauty queens have much more in common with politicians than most would think if they can sometimes even be more rational in the thinking it seems let's cross to the united states now and speak to our correspondent there samir a call samir a good day to just tell us what was different about this contest well miss north dakota was crowned miss america two thousand and eighteen in atlantic city last night but that was hardly the most interesting part of the night contestants were asked were asked highly controversial political questions centered around president trump's decision making ranging from charlottesville and confederate monuments to the paris climate of ports and even trump russia collusion. one hundred ninety five
. pairs agreement the u.s. is withdrawing from the green meant citing negligible environmental effects and negative economic impact good decision bad decision over half of americans favored leaving confederate statues in place while others want them removed keep or get rid of them demonstration. white supremacists and the k.k.k. in charlottesville virginia turned violent the president said there was shared blame with quote very fine people on both sides were there. the miss america organization is a staunch rival of the missile universe organization which president own for nearly two decades and it seems like the animosity still lingers on the miss america organization took a very strong anti trump stance last night which was made evident in the q. and a round with questions framed in such
a way as to pressure contestants into condemning trump but some like miss missouri jennifer davis resisted when celebrity judge jordin sparks asked the delegate remains theory if she believed president trump was guilty or innocent of colluding with russia her response was far from expect it will take a look at our multiple investigations into whether trump's campaign colluded with russia on the election well did they hear the jury guilty or innocent and please explain your verdict right now i'd have to say and i say it because not enough information has been revealed we are cancer we are still investigating this and i think we should investigate it to its fullest. now miss missouri's answer comes as a surprise especially when the liberal circus in washington is constantly harping on about alleged russian interference and russian collusion without any evidence whatsoever so perhaps maxine waters and the conspiracy theorists over at c.n.n.
an innocent you see should consider watching beauty pageants for political analysis since beauty queens have just proven to be more intelligent and level headed than all of us congress ever thought see the day when innocent until proven guilty was considered old fashioned that's the start of a miracle on the for us thank you. new round of strikes so that from this tomorrow is unions continue to show the rage that emanuel micron's new labor reforms the latest polls sixty percent of those quizzed the worried about the president's plans which is due to come into force next week. from paris. his popularity really slumped over the summer he's now got the lowest approval ratings according to one poll of any french president at this point into their presidential terms and one of the biggest reasons for this slump in the ratings is the labor law reforms that he wants to push through that's going to make
it easier if he manages to push them through to hire and fire workers especially for small and medium businesses he was elected on a pro-business platform and he wants to give small and medium businesses greater flexibility here in france to allow small companies to bypass trade union agreements and herein lies the problem the trade unions here aren't happy about these reforms they see all this is an attempt to weaken their influence and to diminish their power here in france where they traditionally have rather a lot of it french workers very highly protected with the labor laws as they currently stand but there is high unemployment here in france that is something that emanuel macron has said that he is determined to tackle by pushing through these changes to the labor laws to morrow is set to be the biggest test of his presidency so far because the two big trade unions here they are going to be calling
a general strike and they're going to be demonstrating on the streets of many cities here in france including paris against these reforms emanuel micron himself remains unequivocal he says that he has a strong mandate in order to push through these reforms in order to implement these changes to the law and on friday he had a thing or two to say about the people that oppose him take a listen. to shoot it in detail and. i will be absolutely determined i will not yield in any way not to slight because. not to extremists. and actually the french governments. folks person tried to backpedal a little bit on those comments by saying that actually he was referring to former presidents over the past thirty years. chirac who didn't have the courage to push through these reforms they were always watered down in some way and he said
that courage takes great risk nevertheless on the socialist leader here in france he had a quick witted response to. take a listen to what men and sean had to say. cynics because all in the streets on twelve and twenty. alcoholic's people who are nothing more illiterate slackers the declarations of love from across the french are multiplying well it's not all the trade unions who are going to be protesting here in france tomorrow emanuel micron's team spent a lot of the summer courting some of the trade unions here in france and making peace offerings and it appears to have partly worked one leader of a rather more aggressive trade union here has said that they will not be participating in the strike to morrow and that there's no point starting a fight when it's already over so you can see macro team has been using this sort of divide and conquer approach towards these reforms towards the trade unions we're
going to find out to morrow if that approach has worked. three civilians have been killed two more in hospital following a taliban raid in afghanistan's eastern province of longer will you may find these images coming up being. carried out by afghan special forces on saturday night all five victims came from the same family mother two children all the daughter survived the raid with injuries according to officials to taliban commanders were also killed and three others injured during that. they were very brave she will pull out a woman we're going to go to. their little did they were able to. move every way they were going until you see. that
there was the rescue. people said well they were already with this room for. the reason this is where i'm going. really has them every room with. a group. i have to identify. on that. a little. bit on body part of. the end of the. phone let. me tell you. you only deal. with the food and you'll definitely have a lot a lot of. you all watching international news all the back with the latest headlines see you at the top of the hour.
what is the real function of media in the west today to inform citizens or parrot the interests and policies of the political elites it would seem corporate media can't get enough of. they're bred for a single purpose. they have a superman. they start training very young. eight months of intensive school. they're rats. and they save lives.
when lawmakers manufacture consents instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the famous merry go round lifts only the one percent. to ignore middle of the room signals. the real news is. the world. credit is one of the basic instruments to drive an economy but it can also lead to tragedy i did it i took the whole gist i came bigger and met that the debt style game and it was firing up from found. many lives have been broken by excessive debt and the banks got you into trouble and all the big bankers got big. government by the banks but i just didn't think of
the ordinary men who. rushed mornings through the back under don't buy creditors people see no future bad face or have become ill get into a job your relationship breaks down you become a casualty is dead a lifelong trap or is there a way out of those actually come to a bit of an old michael to judge bill from so much cisco so much. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. to caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words and hopes to put to rest things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still
some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one to. speak to now as there were no other takers. to lame that mainstream media has met its maker.
donald trump's presidency has been marred by habit domestic resistance it's what those republicans and democrats. are ties with russia. as a trump administration. powerless or does it still have cards. former reagan administration official author and political columnist. with the american media allegations of the president colluding with russia and politicians doing the russian card to score points against the administration the white house's attempts to normalise moscow has so far. with political necessity forcing the two to sides.
