to. you. you. to vist so occupied a local school to prevent spanish police from closing down polling stations with the region poised to vote in an independence referendum deemed illegal by madrid. tech giants take center stage in the alleged russian meddling scandal with google now joining facebook and twitter in declaring it will testify to congress that says the hunt for signs of the pair was an outside interference intensifies in the american media. today marks two years since russia launched its anti terror campaign in syria we
look back at what's been achieved in that time. although there you're watching aussie international broadcasting to you live the most studio in moscow and you karen good to have you with us. spain's catalonia is on the edge of what could prove a momentous occasion is controversial independence referendum on sunday is planned as the two and a half thousand polling stations will participate even though madrid has ordered them to be shut down as it were gone to the vote is illegal locals have staged sit ins to prevent the crackdown on medina cotton of i reports from one school being used as a polling station. we're standing very close to one else these schools located here and the barcelona city center it is a place for voting on sunday now police have been ordered to shut down old polling station so the people of this neighborhood decided to stay within the doors of the
school inside of the school to prevent this from happening you know you're going to what you see here was not planned beforehand we were living in this area of the city defending the place where we want to vote on sunday if you turn around you will see people when the doors of this school open. places in order to keep defending this vote the spanish authorities have already taken some harsh measures to prevent this referendum from going forward fourteen catalan state officials have been arrested extra police has been sent into the city u.n. experts are saying that these sorts of restrictions are quite worrying as they may violate fundamental human rights now meanwhile as the date of the referendum draws near or at the splits and the council and society is really getting more and more avid and with the protests now taking into the streets people protesting both for
and against this vote this is the biggest really constitutional crisis spain has seen in decades and nine seems to be willing to somehow backtrack and meet the other one halfway. now law and order in the region is maintained by confluence regional police force known as mosul squadron this replaced the spanish police locally almost ten years ago and is controlled by the consul and government and consular forces have been tossed with preventing sunday's referendum from happening however as things that there are fears in madrid that they may not comply the spanish government has deployed national military forces known as the civil guard to the region to ensure the vote. is stopped some six thousand civil guards have been stationed at ports in the region arriving on spanish interior ministry chartered cruise ships and they will stay in the region until october the third the spokes person to casa loney as local police force that that while orders will be
followed that doesn't necessarily mean anything will be prevented the whole bottom of the top of the one of the main roles of the police is to guarantee the inner unity of our society in this respect the catalonian police do not support those either for or against the referendum but rather all catalonians we have no choice but to obey the decisions of the court and prosecutor's office when it's about control over crowds and public order we need to see what happens in each individual case if we can't prevent something it doesn't mean we don't follow orders but that most probably we can't do anything about it. the spanish government says the referendum is intended to quote break the country however the debate over the referendum has extended beyond spanish borders one finnish m.p. has published his email exchange with the spanish ambassador in finland and it take all six the ambassador to respect human rights in catalonia and let people vote the
spanish diplomat fired back saying that if one day finland needed a useful odor eighty it could go looking for it in catalonia political analyst joan cost on penal says the reply suggests the spanish government is on the edge. the response is embarrassing it is preposterous it is certainly not a very diplomatic response and it clearly shows it displays that the spanish state apparatus the spanish authorities are extremely stressed and extremely nervous about what is going on in catalonia they are afraid that catalonia will become an independent state and it is quite striking how do you mean union is very quick to respond whenever it comes to crimes is in turkey to crises in russia were on the other hand whenever we have gross violations of fundamental rights and freedoms really needs territory it's it remains very very worryingly silent it turns a blind eye it turns a deaf ear and this is something to do you should think about. google
says it will cooperate with us all for a tease about alleged russian meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential elections is the latest tech giant off to facebook and twitter to make headlines in the saga to pin down outside interference google will also reportedly conduct an internal investigation before it testifies in november earlier twitter published a report on alleged russian activities on the platform in which it said it had banned over two hundred suspicious accounts despite failing to link them directly to russia it also took a swipe at r.t. by revealing confidential information regarding how much this channel spends on twitter. we spoke to former u.s. congressman and presidential candidate ron paul about the escalating accusation but i think it's a witch hunt i think that they don't care about what hillary was doing and they want to their very biased against that from him pain so far they haven't showed me
an ad that was a that was a pro trump that was paid for by the russian government most of the time you could look at some of this stuff that's going around and i think it's all coming from sore losers i thought it would be better with more outlets and the internet to counteract some of this but it looks like sometimes this backfires and they actually end up using the internet to try to stir up more trouble frankly i don't have the sensation that boy this is a big deal you know if we don't find out by not exactly what russians did to our elections you know the end of the world is coming i think that's a bit of fear mongering i can understand everything that is being used and going on i just see what's happening in this post-election period as a result of a bunch of sore losers that were shocked that they didn't win the election and now they're out there who sort of go after a witch hunt but i think that the responsibility for us ought to be is what has our
government done has our government been involved after they're in power and unfortunately we're involved too much around the world. and the rest of the mainstream media is not letting up and it's not like ations against russia and this n.b.c. is rachel maddow for example has accused russia of meddling just about everywhere from europe to the middle east similar con takes a close and i have reason to believe that russia does not watch this t.v. show so here's an experiment let's create a fake secessionist movement in the united states on the theory that russia will support secession of anyone in the west for any. reason just because they'd literally love for the west to break apart well lately it seems that rachel maddow covers russia more than any other topic for the past few months she's managed to connect almost every news event to russia she starts with fires at ukrainian ammunition depots but also conveniently fails to mention that such fires have
happened multiple times two thousand and four in two thousand and five and two thousand and six but facts don't matter when her sole agenda is to blame russia now we might not be here to prove her wrong but we can however note that her reports are filled with in accuracies and we saw that this week in iraq where russia was one of the only nations on earth that supported the northern iraq referendum in which the kurds voted this week that they should break off northern iraq from the rest of iraq and become their own independent nation now that's completely false the russian foreign ministry said in a statement that moscow supports unity sovereignty and territorial integrity but it doesn't stop there even somehow manages to drag catalonia into this there's also going to be another independence referendum this weekend in spain where the capital on the region is voting on whether or not they'd like to break off and form an independent state apart from spain turns out russia is supporting that one too and she says russia supports the catalan independence referendum but contrary to what maddow says russia views the issue as spain's domestic affair
a position which spain's ambassador to russia believes to be perfect and accusations of course don't even end their pressure for years in this country as actively promoted the secession of texas rachel maddow sentiments were quite similar to the rest of western media and one of the only pieces of evidence cited is that the group's means contained a grammatical errors but that's not the only time russia was under rachel maddow spotlight she's been accusing trump of colluding with russia since the election you're not having a terrible terrible dream also you're not dead and you haven't gone to hell this is your life till this is our election this is us this is our country we know of the russian attack on our election russian efforts to try to elect donald trump reza. it did not seem to be a super labor intensive process it was like an industrial process but you do need people to do the work they're apparently still working nail this summer it's still against us even though rachel maddow is enjoying these record high ratings it seems
as if political discourse has been reduced to celebrity gossip which is quite unfortunate that there is no longer some sort of boundary between news and entertainment from the us election to buying facebook and twitter on sunday even disrupting the n.f.l. earlier we discussed if only the allegations hold also with media analysts lying brant budowsky a columnist for the hill news website. what is troubling to most americans here is that the latest example involves playing race cards in american politics from some russian sources to try to divide americans there are allegations with some evidence at this point who are the russians russian government russian people people who speak russian what we don't know anti fracking ads black lives matter how is that going to help donald trump oh i know because it causes chaos details don't matter just mentioned russia mentioned r g and we're off and running president
putin and everyone else knows the exact truth the whole truth about what happened what it would prove relations is to stop it stop whether anyone will admit it or not is not stop stop interfering in the american system stop promoting racism or racial division promoting any political candidate or party in the united states by not doing the things that were on the news now that they are doing one question what is the what is the best evidence you have take all the time you want the best evidence you have of anything that you have attempted to accuse russia of you know the senate intelligence committee democrats and republicans the f.b.i. every law enforcement agency every cattle intelligence agency in america many many and most republican senators and republican members of congress republican and i'm a liberal democrat republican agree with every word i just said about what russia
has done i'm trying so hard to play along i swear to you i'm not trying to be don i don't understand what if somebody were to pay an ad for black eyes matter n.f.l. boycott whatever it is so what if they would have by an ad that is on the news already how is the russian. story somehow worse deeper or affecting people more. then the other story of yuri ten thousand times on ten thousand other platforms. hitting back at a wave of accusations of turning into a president of the rich french leader among all mccrone has said that his latest tax reform has ended and courage and investment and promoting talent in the country however people we spoke to in paris don't buy that saying that reform will work against them. explains. how do you know when you not just rich but your filthy bridge.
cars and race horses a definitely signs that eve more than a pretty penny to spend right. well not so much in france where the toys of the rich and famous no longer eligible for tax and that's causing quite a stir if you think this is. i think this is unfair but justice no longer exists in france there isn't a justice system anymore this is the hunger for power of a prince who wants to rule our country how he wants so grown government is only for the rich and he doesn't care about the poor we don't have a middle class there are only poor people who work for the rich yes i am outraged and we the young people should protest against this not cool switching how wrong taxes wealth his government claims that it wants to do you have the extremely wealthy including tens of thousands of millionaires who fled the country because of
the country's old tax system and even though only a tiny fraction of french people pay the old tax money going to own m.p.'s admit they going to face a hard time explaining bass. how could i explain this to six year olds who own an old apartment that they will be taxed more than young trader's driving a ferrari so cool that the taxes raised under the old system of current sold out by the money that rolls lost by people trying to avoid it but many people particularly pension is say they'll be harder hit under the new system and they fear reus they claim that money calls government is only for the rich and the super rich it didn't skate ot see paris. this disc. in tennis charlotte has just spoken about it sparked a number of protests in france did announce in the policies of the president one student protest in paris resulted in clashes with police we spoke to a member of
a friends left wing party who told is that if nothing changes them across his policy his popularity will think. attracting rich people to invest in france is always a similar agreement but mr mccrone forgot that france is one of the. best country for already the best country for. foreign investment mr marquand was elected we with them i guess you could guess presented by many medias like a new president meeting would change things and it was a light because what he's proposing is this same old politics that this is only been the first beneficiary for the rich are seeing the impact will be that less and less people. believe that mr michael and that is popularity will go down well russia's on the terra campaigning for syria is two years old today we'll take a look at what is achieved after the show break they are live.
media. the voters elected businessmen to run this country business equals. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. welcome back today marks two years since the russian military operation to defeat terrorism in syria started it's been a huge undertaking. please. please please. when they are on the map you can see just how much territory i still has lost in
syria since september twenty fifth in the russian defense ministry say eighty seven percent of syria is now free of islamic state our correspondents have been covering the russian come painfully some very beginning. this is the ad based in love hockey from which russian jets launching the sorties against islam ix they tug it's here in syria. the its. time the pilots are ready to go it's a moment's notice. it's
quite incredible to be standing here in the power of this as a decade since fifty of. people around the outfeed would be reduced to dust in this amphitheater laid down by the romans almost two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers that the crowding jewel of the operation here in syria. won't come to the government side of aleppo these sees what you see on your way here we're just a few hundred meters away from the front lines. we're
in the palace. and the rebels are pushing into aleppo. again. the rescuers are now digging through the rubble looking for the body of a thirteen year old girl. and they were did this to. you. were it's a syrian city reposition overlooking the industrial quarter of that is sort of the battle is said to be theists isis fired back as we filmed shells speak on fooling
around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing. life even did as ordered is still far from normal but at least they will be starving to death and the more. we spoke to pays a forward a former u.k. on this area he says russia's proved to be an effective force in the fight against terrorists. but the most significant came at the beginning in. october twenty fifth be in the syrian government forces that point really on the road. i feel if we're at the gate of damascus. russia coming in leveled the playing field and save the day for
the syrian government you have to remember that before that point the western countries and the gulf countries had been sending we've assistance to slam this force with. regardless of consequences for whether that actually help i feel with power through saudi arabia but continuing to pour in been through jihadi forces but russia of intervention particularly with strikes turned the tide. weedkiller joined monsanto has been kicked out of the european parliament it's lobbyists were banned after refusing to attend hearing you know harry was into whether secret studies into the safety of monsanto products were flawed or exaggerated for commercial ends lol mike is also slams the secrecy surrounding the
studies show how can we be sure of developed to conclusions about the safety or otherwise of life for states when there is lack of transparency when it is publicly revealed by the latest us court cases that decided to fit the data provided by the company experts was forced to fight. they're going to say that the emmy page just mentioned is used by monsanto and some of its weed killers chemists they can cause serious damage and just talks to animals and to people the world health organization says it can also cause cancer the organic consumers association says monsanto always happy to sweep all the lot under the carpet if it means bigger profits. the stakes for monsanto are extremely high they have an eight billion dollar industry that they're trying to protect in the united states there are hundreds of people who have gotten cancer from exposure to monsanto's roundup
herbicide who are currently suing the company we have a paper trail that goes back to the one nine hundred eighty s. that shows monsanto knew that roundup causes cancer and. they have been able to successfully suppress this evidence and it was only until two thousand and two when the world health organization determined that monsanto's roundup was a probable human carcinogen they've been trying to cover their tracks and convince regulators that things should proceed business as usual in the united states and in the european union they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars euros every year to suppress the evidence that their products are dangerous and to improperly influence regulators and decision makers in parliament or in the congress if it means billions of dollars in sales to monsanto i think they probably would be better off continuing to hide the evidence even if it means being banned from lobbying. to get
share your thoughts on today's stories by following goes on facebook and twitter and you can also find me that we care and i want to make it a top of the hour for the latest headlines. in the us a child can choose a school. with a retired officers as teachers we don't. recruit will says to you if the cadet is interested in going in the military but we don't recruit ourselves. the pentagon is funding a program to boost interest in the military among teenagers. to step up to an
apollo so that comfortable with yourself. things you can't go wrong with the military it's a great stepping stone for whatever career you want to do but some veterans are willing to tell enthusiastic children a little more they ask me call of duty is very popular first sure video games. it's play and that's because the military like call of duty to turn off call of duty oh yeah well you can't turn off more melodic these kids just don't hear. the darker side does the pentagon allow them to be told or does it just need more recruits. economic development is all about numbers really pleased to report this quarter we are modern six point. but what do we know about the other figures. when i think about the fact that our c.e.o. might do. over twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand
times the average wal-mart a says c.n.n. with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. is that just how a free market would. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine hundred eighty to the point now where people are. just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly devoid society from the whatever the government tried to do it was at best leave. might be making things worse. by saying this is not how capitalism works this is lose them goes hopelessly disastrously wrong.
how mass cash or this is the kaiser report coming to you from the nexus conference in aspen colorado there were. this is a fantastic show today a great opportunity because an american scoundrel one of the world's most wanted men a known financial parasite a man has commit untold number of financial crimes and misdemeanors who stolen from the pockets of american in the world citizens for years someone who we all have great antipathy for who i have compared to a parasite escaping the anus of his diseased. kind of street. you know i don't want to disparage any individual person i think any anus will do in this instance. eighty eight is it doesn't.
