by u.s. forces. by the. time for their weekly. we do start the program with i would almost half a million people have protested in support of independence following decision to impose direct rule the local government. the spanish government is also calling for regional elections within six months. but you have to know this measure we are going to implement has a lot to do with the goal of holding an election in catalonia the region will have to hold an election within six months but mine tension is to hold it as soon as we
recover. a lot of us but you know what about part of the spanish government has carried out the worst attack against scotland institutions and residents since the orders of the military dictator francisco franco we appreciate them. were why in a greatly irresponsible act we crossed all boundaries than asking and effect a coup d'etat to ask a democratically elected government. triggering article one fifty five which allows for the transfer of powers to madrid and the dismissal of those officials are alleged to have broken the law is to be passed by the senate within days and while the cattle and parliament won't be dissolved it is now stripped of the capacity to elect a new president r.t. correspondent medina cotton of a now reports on reaction from barcelona. many people that gathered here at the square they were listening to the address that was made by the castle leader and they welcomed with applause they were shouting slogans including
a little bit of that which means freedom so for them it was a big address quite a big decision that was made now we've heard other reactions coming from different catalan government officials including the had of the catlin parliament that had housed announcement treats decision to invoke article one fifty five and dismiss the local government now madrid's decision provoked radio wave of outrage and we've seen hundreds tens of thousands of people here in the streets so far salonen el protesting and marching and we managed to talk to some of them who says the muslim bookless were bent last is the first time we found ourselves in such a situation we've heard talk of possible support from durham for example but it seems that the e.u. is not interested as a tool in what's going on here. i think. we least we know are there other
planets not. even. countries dailies they say what they say all the time the same thing they repeat the same rewards and that's on monday and for the other leaders so it's it's it's it's impossible to talk to them i mean you're going to don't know what they did by triggering article one five five it was suicidal because as you can see there are millions of people defending catalinas right to independence what happened this saturday in the region of council on the a mania local authorities call defacto coup de town and a blow to democracy we spoke to thomas harrington a professor of i bury and studies he says exerting this kind of pressure in a democratic country is illegitimate. what is the role of the force in elective democracies in the twenty first century. i think the consensus on the catalan side is a very strong one and i can't imagine that the people who are rightfully elected in the september two thousand and fifteen elections going along with
a new election after the government that they were elected to form part of is is overthrown by the several of our days and i think president bush among makes a very compelling fight and he says well if this can be done to us what other things can be done to other people if you're going to sit by and let it happen throughout the week madrid's been tightening its grip over catalonia on monday to catalan independence leaders were arrested for the key roles they played in organizing the referendum one of them's the leader of the catalan national assembly the other is the president of an organization that promotes capital latin language and culture and since then boss alone has seen an even bigger demonstration uniting hundreds of thousands of people. i was.
and. their argument only to those in charge in the council on government who are the protagonist in this challenge to walk coexistence and i ask them to cease illegal activity they should have families in their objective. but if you need we are now applying article one five five because no. government at all in a democratic country can accept that the law be ignored or violated changed and this has all happened under full screen and they impose their criteria on everybody
else. it's been a week of intense scrutiny for see with this channel attacked left right and center as propaganda artie's i don't know hawkins tech startup r.t. has been in the spotlight for a while under fire from government officials the media even think tanks here are some recent highlights. boris johnson led the charge in the u.k. house of commons with an attack on opposition m.p.'s who have appeared on this channel if you study the output of of russia today it is a scandal it is a scandal that members of the party opposite are continuing to to value day to value the liberty to meet. that kind of propaganda by going on those programs but some of his fierce criticism the foreign secretary of peers to have missed out a bit of important information his own conservative colleagues have also appeared
as guests on the shuttle as well as someone closer to home his own father stanley johnson was interviewed by going on the ground i was afshin rattansi just last month. the times newspaper claims there are now calls by the labor party for that's the u.k. media watchdog to investigate artie's advertising campaign on the london underground they even contacted us for our take on the matter later saying our press office refused to comment except we did two questions do you wish to respond to this complaint which advertising agency created the adverts for r t where they meet in house. hi probably not much point in responding to a complaint to an authority that does not regulate out of door advertising the out campaign was developed in-house by the other team and fully proved by all u.k. vendors we are glad to say many in the u.k.
are engaging with our advertising understood thanks for swift response. and it gets better one thing tank recently completed the mom of the task of compiling a list of all the thousands of guests who've appeared all our shows ever from politicians and journalists to academics and thirties and even groups them into categories and then dismisses them as useful idiots many people in europe and the us including politicians and other persons of influence continue to exhibit troubling naivety about artie's political agenda these useful idiots remain oblivious to r.t.c. intentions and boosted its legitimacy by granting interviews on the shows and news casts so only useful idiot list john mccain one of the most vocal critics of russia
even film director rob reiner gets a mention in the celebrity section he's now part of an organization called the committee to investigate russia as not to mention u.s. senator and former presidential candidate bernie sanders as well as another of the current american president donald trump our guest that finally the smoking gun of russian election influence former first lady michelle obama gets a mention although her name only appears in the program description she was never an actual guest check in the episodes would have confirmed this back to boris johnson himself he is listed on the reports official guest list taken from website descriptions for the code. the show news thing well they may want to double check that one as well its foreign secretary boris johnson boris welcome. all we going to get a chance to fight the spanish before america and russia kill us so. you still would
you prove to be. a proportion of the reporters sponsored by george soros as well as the u.k. and u.s. embassies in the czech republic it certainly spares no criticism of those giving interviews on this channel. we decided to ask our guests or they were mentioned in the list of useful idiots with a very agree with the description. development is somehow trash it gets more and more aggressive across europe the political debates and one of these games they are playing. they are destroying the reputation of politicians they don't like i don't think that it's fair to say that we are simply here is russian stooges i am not anti russian but sometimes i'm quite critical of russia over syria and over the detention of political prisoners like the others. you know of course everybody has their agendas but i think it has
certainly not tried to constrain my expression or the expression of many other people i know i work with a network we speak our mind and we're critical of the west when it's appropriate and were critical of russia when it's appropriate. the reality is there is a dissident voice in the u.k. the only very rarely gets any airtime in the mainstream media. is the only place that has been providing a regular platform for what used to be dissident voices in the u.k. but now much more mainstream voices. well other recent attacks on our t.v. do come the whole russian meddling frenzy now the latest incarnation of which comes from britain where a labor party m.p. has called for a probe into moscow's alleged interference in the brics it. given the widespread public concern over foreign and particularly russian interference in western democracies. this house but the government and the electoral commission will
examine these reports very carefully and reassure our country that all of the resources spent in the referendum from permissible sources. and see russia hysteria has been making headlines for months it started with alleged moscow meddling in the us election and then it moved over to the french and then the german votes and there are even been suggestions the russians hyped the capital on independence for president vladimir putin says it's all part of a very deliberate campaign launched after donald trump's victory. so should the u.s. who put up with this some president and then to a russian campaign which was not provoked by anything someone lost the elections to mr trump and russia was blamed for this the unfolded this entire russian hysteria and now any failure will be connected to us and one of the loudest complaints is coming from the politician who claims that russian interference last time the
american presidency. many members of parliament have been by russia. france. after cyberattack before their president. no the evidence that russia has a hockey e-mails since the civil war there is no possible to say you've stated silverstein a criminal group it really can be anyone. the simplicity of the technical part can make us think it's just a simple person who created it and so this person can be in any country with any
kind of motivation. maybe you've even seen the ads and on london underground one russian state funded propaganda distorted bragging watch our t.v. and find out who we are planning to. the fact is they're also opening a new scottish. goes through. the hysteria the absolute. boggling hysteria that occurs whenever the word russian. whatever is even mentioned people say. rush is there added again how are they at it again i don't know but you know how they are who the russians what russia and those russians
more of the week's headlines and about. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. washington washington. voters elected to business to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. but with these gaming anymore and you say. it's. damaging the russian economy. and i know a lot of people who are looking for creative ways to get better results.
thanks for joining us here on r.t. this week the pentagon confirmed the victory of the coalition led kodesh fight against islamic state in syria's rocka operation a great success in the fight against. we're having great success against what was once known as the core caliphate iraq in syria and now we're actually ending the beginning i think the interest stage and watch for the caliphate is rocket over the latest pictures from iraq i don't exactly get a sense of success that's ghost city being demolished the destruction here you can see it caused by eisold of militias coalition bombardments aid agencies say
a shoe jeff it will be needed to end the humanitarian crisis that i sold claimed iraq as defacto capital in twenty fourteen the first major offensive against the terrorists there began two years later and used to be one of syria's largest city is but is now little more than rubble. recently corelation air forces were ready to demolish the whole building to target one member i say they have no problem killing civilians. we ran from death and any human being would be afraid the sound of the planes makes us afraid they were
shelling the civilians destroying buildings and houses rocket was destroyed by coalition aircraft only ten percent hit their targets the rest hit civilians. the u.n. estimates that's an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq every day. and they seem to be no real escape for these civilians their level of suffering friends relatives family of the children essentially. it's just getting. humanitarian relief teams are only now beginning to arrive there has been a disruption in the water supply the pollution of food because of course the area was under siege for such a long time there is a severe lack of medical services medical care hospitals that are functioning
severe lack a lot of course and so there is a massive massive humanitarian need on the ground. the french parliament has adopted a controversial counter-terrorism bail giving increased powers to security services at the new law has drawn criticism from rights groups who fear it will curb civil liberties the police will now have a greater ability to search houses without a warrant and conduct stop and search operations on the streets or the law also allows with already used to wiretap to make communications more widely that includes telephones and e-mail places of worship suspected of promoting extremism may also be temporarily shut down the architect of the law is president himself who says this is an alternative to the current state of emergency already extended six times. because of course you did well awful sauna securely the anti terror draft
law on the reinforcement of internal security has been adopted by a parliamentary majority and it will come into power in november the first when the state of emergency expires the state of emergency was effect however we've seen in recent months that unfortunately doesn't protect us from the reality of certain tax because any state of emergency can protect us in totally reduce the threat. state of emergency is due to be lifted at the beginning of next month it was this year the following that are twenty fifteen terror attacks in paris the new law has raised some controversy with many slamming it as an in danger meant to basic freedoms we gauge reaction on the streets of paris and almost. no i don't agree with it and i'm sure we can do things differently i don't think it is the way to solve the problem of terrorism. i think it when you look for something to have real reasons for doing so me personally am not against it. but i really don't think
it will help to fight any terrorists it will only harm personal freedom as i now believe it is designed more to control the people. of the more your point i think we were to have the means to control people there are already laws in place we know we are under control and i phones are being monitored if they were now be able to get into our apartments i don't believe the goal is fighting terror. the united nations also raised objections to the anti terror bill and said the measures if implemented would limit freedoms in french society and warned of possible repercussions we discussed the new law with m i five officer an emotional and political analyst dan glazebrook. the state of emergency was passed because of the appalling attacks but that was anything to be for a limited time what nikon is doing is now codifying the same terms and putting it forever into french law i think they've expanded the stop and search powers around major transport hubs and also this idea that they can close down centers mosques
places religious worship if there's hints of radicalization but there's no proof required for that closure and that is quite concerning as well because of course what is radicalization at the moment of course everyone in france is focused on the concept of islamic radicalization but what if that spreads what if there is mission creep so that someone who protests against the government is deemed to be a radical and you know their work may close down if you don't deal with the root causes which is the brutal foreign policy on the one hand and then the alienation of entire communities due to your system out against discrimination and racism on the other hand if you're not going to deal with those even the most vicious police state will not be able to stop. being some people who decide to to lash out unfortunately you're never going to be able to keep your population one hundred percent safe because your whole foreign policy is about certain fire to two other countries this is r.t.
