a very good morning to you from all of us here. more large protests for and against catalan independence are taking place in various spanish regions pro unity activists staged a demonstration outside the spanish army officers in barcelona people from the basque region organized a human chain holding hands and singing songs in support of catalan independence now it comes off the madrid decided to impose direct rule and deprive the local government of its powers following catalonia has suspended declaration of independence the senate is expected to approve the transfer of powers to madrid and the dismissing of officials alleged to have broken the law and while the cattle and
parliament will not be dissolved it will now be stripped of its capacity to elect a president. within a caution over reports from barcelona or walk alone together in the kaplan people had a chance to respond we saw all those fully supporting independence and also those who want to be careful but part of spain. i. was. probably independence leaders sounded in paris in the beginning. the people of get along won the right to become an independent state. but we propose that parliament suspends the proclamation of a dependants. they were practically deciding the future of a nation is not a crime so here is what we have the region is stuck in limbo while the cattle a government has been and for weeks and the jury took an unprecedented step and asked the national senate to depose their. cattle and the president
called it the worst attack since franco's dictatorship if you reward over a with both attackers and founders using similar arguments on each other. in a greatly irresponsible act christ all boundaries by announcing at effect a coup d'etat to oust a democratically elected government if this is a complete try there is a coup thoughtful he's the one that have been you know followed by. mr bush and his government. we're now applying five five because no government a tool in a democratic country can accept that the law will be ignored or violated or changed yeah but what the spanish government illegally proclaimed itself the representative of the catalans kaplan authority still think they could win local media speculation that the president could even officially proclaim independence this week but it
seems ordinary catalans are the ones on the losing side. independence was declared in a very messy way so i'm not surprised by what's happening. we're a bit lost is the first time we found ourselves in such a situation there are people here doing them stray sions week after week and they don't talk about the only talk about some people that is doing other demonstrations but not. the majority of the spanish senate still house to approve the measure is presented by my treats and if it does council will remain a time in this in the moment at least till the next treason elections to take place within the next six months and then the question are. barcelona. meanwhile the valley region which is a part of catalonia wants to remain a part of spain a small region in the pyrenees mountains has a population close to ten thousand people and if catalonia becomes independent the
valley has a right to declare its own autonomy thanks to a law that was passed in twenty fifteen. on the idea that they are on valley is a unique territory and within can't alone it is self governing has its own institutions its own language and its own history and culture only nineteen percent of those who vote is in the referendum in favor of scotland independence that i will show that each other our right to self-determination was unanimously approved by the cattle and parliament and by the spanish state we could become a part of france or china tomorrow for instance if we chose to do so but we won't do it we want to remain a part of catalonia and spain. people are really afraid especially for the economy the economy of their own valley is very free general because it is entirely dependent on tourism therefore anything that we can see it makes people really free . what are hot on the heels of catalonia as a referendum two major italian regions overwhelmingly voted for greater autonomy on
sunday people in lombardy and veneto voted ninety eight and ninety five percent respectively in favor of taking more power from rome in the non-binding referendums here's how the leaders of the two regions and dissipated divide. we want to overcome the inability of europe just solve problems and face up to them by offering a new dimension but we wanted more united stronger europe one that takes into account the specifics of territories this is what can be simply called the regional . page of history will be written in any case village so will be the same as before we want to initiate this in amount of this democratic lawful and compatible and in line with the constitution that the two votes saw the first of their kind since the italian institutional referendum of nineteen forty six and what of more
than fifty percent turnout in veneto the vote there is considered valid although the votes are non-binding meaning they won't result in a transfer of power as they are expected to send a strong message to rome and locals are unhappy at having to subsidise poor parts of the country of a neto along body the two of italy's economic powerhouses together both regions account for almost a third of italy's g.d.p. and almost a quarter of the nation's electorate they are home to top tourism and industry hotspots including milan and venice and university of milan politics professor. he believes the map of europe will change dramatically in the near future. i think we witness in really the disintegration of this kind of european order and there will be a confederation in europe clearly like ten or fifteen years from now but not based on the nation states. that we know if cuts alone yeah.
and spain break apart then a lot of things will happen there that will have a definitely a domino effect with vanity scotland and all sorts of other regions that might be easily thirty five to forty five new countries coming up. u.s. backed forces in syria have liberated the country's most lucrative oil field from al located in the province of dead as all was captured by terrorists in twenty fourteen producing up to nine thousand barrels a day it became a key money machine for the terror group the syrian democratic forces have been fighting terrorists mostly on the eastern side of the euphrates river whereas syrian troops backed by russian air support are on a separate anti eisold mission mainly to the west of the river they have now almost liberated the provincial capital and these exclusive pictures are from the recently we captured. the arabic spoke with local residents about life under the siege of i
saw. i saw militants declared jihad a bit more than a month ago this was a general mobilization and everyone had to participate in the established age of those subject to mobilization is from twenty to thirty years do they teach all of the young pino because many of them escaped the militants confiscated all state property for example i am a civil servant so they took my house and turned it into a living room where the headquarters the living room was used to gather women why do they collect women in the living where there are hostages where did they come from they were brought from everywhere they were kidnapped i mean what i say the militants marry them when one of the militants died the second married his woman. is that which i'm trying to milton's just also jurors from to syrian arab army into cages and put them into the water put into the water to drown they were lowered into the water which the militants first destroyed tenchi read classes in the
mosque and when they found simmons and two police streamed they beat us riddled with interest to the police station once i was standing in a park in watching the children playing city caught me in which me eight times. a billionaire populist dubbed the czech republic's donald trump is on course to becoming the country's next prime minister the party of bobbish won the parliamentary elections over the weekend after running on an anti establishment and immigrant platform. now explaining why the comparisons with the american president can be drawn. i bet most of you have never been bothered by the heartbeat of political life in prague the time has come i'll tell you why it's worth checking out how the czech republic voted for its next parliament meet the man set to become the country's new leader representing the winners a n o anti immigrant anti-establishment. ready to
voice the interests in brussels and ensures that because we have to fight for ourselves progs interests first brussels interest second understood dammit does he have any relatives with the last dame trump even if not mr bob as well deserves check donald trump title given by the media despite already being part of the system as finance minister for a while no way this guy has kept up the image of being beyond the system i was working for two years twenty hours a day before the election i met thirty thousand people i don't need to food my ego my ego is really full all of my life i've heard that a truly successful person a really really successful person cannot run for public office ladies and gentleman . i am officially running. for president of the united states have i not mention this mr bobbish and his
billions make him the second richest man in this country journalists call him a media mogul but his business toys vary from farms to chemical plants no golf courses though bobbish is younger than trump he's got time to catch up oh wait he's focused on the new job with confidence from the state like a business we went home and i'm like politicians have to understand i've been a businessman but i have good common sense in that business and i've told you and very bobbish is not a fan of migrants or the way brussels deals with them for now there is no place for my. in europe we will soon begin the construction of a great great wall along our southern border between and it is obvious there is no check donald trump without rumors of him being a kremlin favorite mr bobbish has been trying to throw that off he even wrote an
open letter to the washington post maybe thanks to it we won't hear the media go on about russia helping their man when the check polls maybe a commentator we spoke to told us that trump like politicians may be here to stay political analyst out of gary also believes there's a growing sentiment to oust the establishment in some ways and certainly in the superficial ways he takes those boxes he's a billionaire he's subject to control of the sea revels in blunt statements in other ways he's very odd like donald trump he's got many more years of experience in government than trump will be in a leadership position he is someone who is officially paul to the establishment key thing with this election is to realize that all of the policies that really won the top spots with the exception of the party that came in second the conservatives the center right. everyone is really on of the new policies there was on the roof of
course came first then the third we have the pirate polity and then third we have the far right policy with their various anti islamic and e.u. rhetoric so what this election represents is very much trump like in the sense that it's a rejection of everything old and an embrace of many things new. over the months of donald trump's presidency the media has had no shortage of reasons why he is not fit for the top job with his looks and habits ridiculed time and time again now it's what he doesn't have that landed him in the crosshairs. of. the first u.s. president in one hundred fifty years to be without
a pat. more of maroon red they are now bald the shock and surprise there is. but it's the knife and fork that have folks dropping their comrie gets to scoops of the nominee screaming instead of the single scoop for everyone else. the. president from spends some evenings in the white house in his bathrobe we checked
he definitely wore them in the past obviously we don't know if i actually owned the robot he is lounging in. in general having pets is thought to be beneficial for one's mental health. it is international in this world of online activities and i'm top of global security you may be a terrorist i'm not even about it to try to explain this after the break.
thora tease that can collect your personal data and compiled terrorist blacklist the case of one british activist and journalist highlights so there are also other entities actively doing this sometimes causing very real problems for unsuspecting individuals now imagine that suddenly your bank account is closed and you cannot pay your bills and then it is also the misty not knowing why what's wrong with me why why are they closing down my account and not only my personal accounts my family accounts and my business accounts all of that were closed or the activist you just saw me was mistakenly designated as a terrorist by the database world check run by thomson reuters it's a subscription only service providing various dossiers on individuals the database is popular with buying so as well as the police. told us he was completely shocked when he learned he had been placed on
a list of terrorists. proved rather distressed because this is not even the united nations it's not our government and living and their democracy like britain you don't expect something like this to happen if you are not a criminal and live there is nothing against you legally then this should not be you should you should not be proscribed you should not be alienated already excluded and the united essential services after the issue gain publicity thomson reuters apologized to the journalist and compensated his expenses however this is not an isolated case on another occasion the company had to issue an apology for a similar mistake and valving radio presenter mind you that now was. and in the u.k. a new data protection bill could give a boost to data collecting and blacklisting by a wide range of entities however officials have been singing the praises of the legislation saying there's actually no grounds for concern. the new law will ensure
the united kingdom retains its wealth last regime protecting personal data high standards of data protection and human rights innovation and ensure we can remain confident. the bill shows will to come into effect in may twenty eighth tina will introduce new data security and privacy rules also exempting entire industries from regulation i present the bill as under a house of lords review of the new legislation would grant special exemptions to journalists financial firms and doping bodies most crucially this means they will be allowed to preserve the and then imagery of their sources and access personal data without consent as long as it is quote in the public interest in a global policy expert george some only says the lack of control of a corporation's handling of personal data leaves ordinary people in a very vulnerable position. it is completely unacceptable that
organizations can collect all manner of very personal data and use them maliciously against. individuals and thereby damage their reputations damage their careers even damage their livelihood how we able to control. what corporations are doing how are we able to ensure that individuals have some means of recourse against the use of data against them i don't see that within this legislation there is adequate protection for individuals. you know giving them some kind of recourse to challenge this this malicious use of such data. with i saw steadily losing ground in iraq more and more children of fallen jihadists are being left behind r.t.
has been running a campaign to bring russian speaking youngsters back home after their parents moved to iraq to join the terrorists and it seems another little boy will soon be reunited with his family. a lot of. money you know scuzzy. that is just. what. was. this was your idea with mr sulu and what what's just cut what do you know. what the
. news minister. was. killed you will. see in. the time of the. sure yes. israeli police have arrested a palestinian man for his post on facebook when holloway posted a picture of himself it was wishing a good morning to his friends however the post was translated to attack them or hurt them which got the attention of israeli police the translation was not checked and the man was arrested on suspicion of incitement he was released shortly thereafter when the assumption timed out to have been folds and we spoke with
a journalist for the high rights newspaper gideon levy the things the whole arrest was illegal. is that seemed to do not only was morally see but also ways. illegality it's legal it's looked only immoral it was illegal we just have to mention that he was released of the few hours so the scene didn't develop too far but it is a bad enough and it's just an indication to the. palestinians without any respect to none of their basic rights this is not the first time a palestinian is in trouble over the law with with a post on facebook israeli authorities are closely monitoring social media as they believe it helps to prevent terror attacks palestinian poet has been under house arrest and twenty fifteen for sharing a video of her reading a poem called resist my people resist that she was awaiting
a verdict which could land her in prison for up to eight years another man was jailed for three days after his comments mocking anti israel arsonists were mistranslated by the israeli police and in one thousand year old was charged with inciting violence for posts praising the palestinian uprising against israel a good deal of it again says jailing palestinians has become a matter of course for israeli authorities freedom of palestinians is very very cheap under these radio while israelis still leaving their democracy is very clear is. that what he says are living under military brutal approximately one million palestinians fifty years. through these really james that's an unbelievable figure it's more or less in the hole any favor he had in his. two sons three sons in jail

business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. hello welcome to. a migrant influx and europe is causing a major political shift as more voters to their right to their frustrations is the political realignment here to stay and what will it mean for the well i ask the former chancellor of austria and a member of the discussion club. with the rise of the right shaking up european politics the divisions between members coming to the forefront. disparities and the crisis. of multi-speed integration stopped the division process in its tracks
