has asked us to blur these women's faces draw to reveal their names and most importantly not to tell anyone where they're being held. for getting. pro independence protesters demonstrating on catalonia national day ahead of a secession referendum in just three weeks time local journalist who says there has been following the protest in the capital and capital. i so we are here in plastic at the union what are being a massive concentration of people just saw their support on the independent this movement. this project today on the eleventh of september the nation and they have
got their own you know it's just the peak of many different protests that have been a cure in throughout the years there's a lot of people there's families their friends that have gathered here for what they see as the peak to kill me nation of what they've been fighting for all these years. just three weeks before the steel a legal referendum. got an answer ready to board it had been fighting for this for a long time and this is a skill a distillation of the popularity of independent this movement has been a regime for the past five years. the council on government announced the referendum on september sixth the very next day the spanish high court banned the move the referendum will still be taking place at the start of next month catalonia insists it will declare independence within forty eight hours if there is a yes vote but spain fears that vote for several reasons council only gains independence spain would lose almost seven percent of its territory and the richest
part of a bit as well it also lose seven million people or a fifth of its tax and twenty percent of exports would also go as would one third of spain's and the big modalists in addition catalonia the year round tourist destination attracts a quarter of all spanish holidaymakers pro independence feelings have been growing for several years protesters pushing their message through colorful headline grabbing rallies.
at one point spanish will make his move to a peace council only snatch the sentiment by allowing the region special autonomy when that was shot down by the constitutional court in two thousand and ten tensions came to the fore and they grew worse still during the financial crisis when the trade rejected a play by the region to reduce its tax burden to the system that redistributes wealth polar regions after that madrid is continually rejected have to learn these efforts to hold independence referendum the spanish court's ruling any such vote unconstitutional. jonathan shafi from scotland's radical independence campaign group believes that europe is fragmenting g to major issues. troll shoot at you're experiencing the it is 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 t. 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 they 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 forty 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 kellam 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. and willie we
discussed the upcoming vote with craig earlier he's a senior market analyst at a london 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 also may lay 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 fall apart because the more stable this relationship is the
more stable the global environment those. well the nerve thousand wives and children of suspected are still fighters awaiting their fate in a refugee camp in iraq after the terror group suffered major defeats artie's among the first news networks to access the facility correspondent because the f. cent is the following report which contains the first on screen interviews with people at the camp. the more i. get says china. because it's because it is such a dumb was it is now 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 extent fighter until you know i was watching people and you know yes for that visit. with the full of. 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 filmed these women. in order to avoid unnecessary attention for their room safety the first thing many told us is that they never wanted to be here in the first place. the killing. them women. conceded that reasoning at the gun you seem to need to think of them
they're not but. almost all of these woman a foreigner as a dead giveaway isis encouraged bringing families over there terrified they fear the iraqi army they're even scared of aid workers because to. get the first. can someone. tell us this is. 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 first one on the any such as if she had said yes until a business and then you will of us most me just as accepted he is not. finite did he have dialysis yet another. young. woman we found russian speaking but the majority. there were also. blue eyed europeans
africans. asians americans many iraqis see them as something alien to fog. too deep to forget the ideology. that alas it was something. that fits them. to see if you think for a moment and i feel i let you me i'm not a young person can pluck up. 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 the orphans many will be able to tell you their names because of trauma or age and getting them out is paramount. that people are finding. but for many. family groups including the un were around the clock to establish identities but it's slow and dangerous work. to the woman to contacts relatives let them know they're still alive. to me is my opinion. of the indian government. and if i leave some of these women may be telling the truth and that is me not the bru can lose just by being here.
even to come. and it will be up to iraq in their countries to establish guilt in the children he recently hostages in while they do indeed been in the stand who are against him. from iraq. a. new round of strikes will hit fronts tomorrow is unions continue to show rage at emmanuel micron's new labor reforms the latest poll shows sixty percent of people are worried about the president's plans which are 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 of the trade unions here on happy about these reforms they see all the. 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 are very highly protected with the labor laws as they currently stand but there is high unemployment here in france that is something that emanuel has said that he is determined to tackle by pushing through these changes to the labor laws to morrow is said 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 inst 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. i will be absolutely determined i will not yield in any way not to sarkozy not to cynics not to extremists. but actually the french government spokesperson 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 all in the streets. and twenty third. alcoholic's people who are nothing hard illiterate slackers the declarations of love from a cron 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 tomorrow and there's no point starting a fight when it's already over so you can see macron team has been using this sort of divide and conquer approach towards these reforms towards the trade unions we're
going to find out tomorrow if that approach has worked. because the issue now with human rights and civil liberties activist. joins us kindly on the lawn good evening to. michael's labor reforms they've been to control the sea the protests in the streets his approval ratings have been constantly declining these first three months in power really been that bad. truckin remember words are what the money would mccall said he had a strong mandate which is up for us he was not elected with a majority of voters actually only forty one percent of the voters sent him to power the second point is that for him to shore so much aggressiveness towards a very defiant public opinion shows dot emanuel is not actually governing the country for the best interest of the population but actually implementing european directives of the head. of the if the employer is
a federation and the other point is that emanuel quite forgot the dutch he's actually uniting all the opposition against him and the only people he muttered to them to bring to his side are actually individual does it because. in a fossil year who's president said as you just mentioned it's already a loss of but the president of the union refused to march but actually the members of the idea it's actually call our courting to march against the labor reform the last point is that we shouldn't forget the the violent clashes that erupted during last spring which actually called for the heavy intervention of the police and the government itself according to your own news network about four twenty two million euros i'm in tear gas that shows that the government is really preparing for the worst and here the street industry people are hardly unhappy first by you emmanuel mccall's and contempt towards the french they are not smart enough except europe
and the second point is for him to be so aggressive when clearly he has nuclear legitimacy to be our president talked about the way he's been speaking to some of his opponents branded those who don't like his reform slack is and cynics says that just the effect of strengthening the opposition to him. would actually he was and he was starting the french people are such and second you also showed the same uses same kind of rhetoric you multiple times before the remember the people or the illiterate you busway speaking about when talking about the factory worker is that the way you make fun of the african immigrants or drowning in the sea so we see it differently if there is a pattern from coming from anyone back home that he has no respect whatsoever to do with whoever doesn't agree with him so right no the test to be honest is for those three to show us through mobilization or to lay on their bodies and which for him
anyway mcluhan he's like so execute them is there a chance he could yet pull this off and bring success to france he doesn't have been in power a few months if he's given chance to bring through the policies he wants could he be a success. no actually absolutely first he was not elected with a strong you know majority we have to remember the election it was either heat there with a pen or a uber with emmanuel mccall so the french people went for the lesser of two evils that was in the second one hundred forty one percent went to vote for him and then he continued shoving this this contempt towards the opposition and toward the rest of the french population so what do i get to answer your question he can't buck sure he can only flee for them in order for him to or what why the whole being done things we would come down things work out would come down because of the poverty which has increased with the people who can't afford health care was also increases
their calling for dismantling of public services a dismantling of the education system the health system as well and then we also have emmanuel mccomb bringing him said of us at this innovator no he's ideology is completely backward which means of giving priority to capital over the human beings and apparently from what i'm hearing here as an activist and also as a person who guy who kind of knows you know there is pretty much people are very unhappy but the meeting point will be tomorrow and then we will see if the ngo will be displayed in the streets or again if people will just wait and see. in terms of the protests coming up how big do you think these are going to be. actually we are not sure like you know we know what was for sure is that those who marched against the labor reform last spring will be there. will be there as well very soon as william and maine my in my home good night he says and believe is that the tipping point will happen when the ethnic neighborhoods of france also
march tomorrow so if the what we call the the class neighborhoods or the border you know you join these marches that would spread differently trouble for him and he would be called so again and we have the ones who would show up for sure. but there would have to go way beyond that this should transcend glass and racial lines of course yasser thanks for joining us here on r.t. yes a lot of human rights and civil liberties activist is my guest. now this year's miss america contest may have revealed the contestants are much more in common with politicians than you might think and in fact can sometimes even be more rational in their thinking his i.d. correspondence mirror can with a look at modern beauty queens. 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 lords and even russia pollution one hundred ninety five. pairs agreement the u.s. is withdrawing from the agreement citing negligible environmental effects and negative economic impact good decision bad decision over half of americans favored leaving confederates that she's 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 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 a 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 remiss if she believed president trump was guilty or innocent of colluding with russia her response was far from expected which take a look at 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 innocent because not enough information has been revealed we are cancer we are still investigating this and i think we should investigate it too explicit. 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 i'm maxine waters and the conspiracy theorists over at c.n.n.
in the us and 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. three civilians have been killed and two more in hospital falling and taliban raid in afghanistan's eastern province of nanga ha warning you may find the following pictures disturbing attack itself was carried out by afghan special forces on saturday night all five victims were from the same family the mother of two children died and the daughter survived the raid with injuries according to officials to taliban commanders were also killed and three more injured during the incident. they were. at the mayor. we're going to. have you ever have to do. more of that they haven't i've ever seen.
there's they're messing around. or people said where they were already there's room for. everything this is where i'm going. when i remember when we. went after them were. part. of. the. that we. can it is open border policy seems to be coming to an end as the government u. turns on the issue and it's even deporting hundreds of asylum seekers to dangerous
war torn countries which the un recommends against these jacqueline has the story. prime minister trudeau was initially a welcome beacon to refugees he even posted what became a viral tweet stating that canadians would welcome all of those feeling terror and war to show the world how to open our hearts and welcome in people who are. extraordinarily difficult situation but trudeau has begun to backtrack on the sentiment that canada is a safe haven for all of his government struggles to cope with the more than eleven thousand people that have crossed into canada from the u.s. since the start of this year the pace in recent weeks has reached up to two hundred fifty people a day many of them fleeing the us out of fear of donald trump's crackdown on immigrants but many have slammed canada's refugee friendly message saying that it has given false hope to those streaming into the country not only are they not safe from expulsion from canada the country has actually ramped up its deportations in
response to the influx and apparently this is old hat for canada even when it comes to sending people to unstable countries according to reuters for years canada has been deporting hundreds of people to countries dangerous for civilians since january of two thousand and fourteen canada has sent two hundred forty nine people to eleven countries that the government has suspended or deferred deportations to because of the apparent risks to civilians that reportedly includes over one hundred people to iraq sixty two to the democratic republic of congo and forty three to afghanistan all war torn countries now the spike in deportations comes as the country has been scrambling to deal with an influx of asylum seekers and is facing a record number of migrants and apparently at least part of their solution has been to send people back to the countries from which they fled so as to tones down the notion that canada is open to all and to the south the us gets increasingly less migrants friendly those fleeing war are seemingly left without a lifeline in north america.
