international. decision to impose direct rule in the wake of the region's independence vote simply protests all across spain the senate is expected to approve the sacking of the region's leadership on friday and while the will not be dissolved it will be stripped of its capacity to elect a president. walk alone together and the kaplan people had a chance to respond we saw the courting independence. but . i. sounded.
the people of the right to become an independent state. report him we propose that parliament suspends the proclamation of independence. graphically 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 dream took an unprecedented step and asked the national senate to depose that we are told now all attention's cattle and presidents called at the worst attack since franco's dictatorship if you reward over a with both attackers and a 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 drive 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 violated or changed. the spanish government illegally proclaimed itself the representative of the catalans kaplan us or it is 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 the very messy way so i'm not surprised by what's happening is that we're a bit lost is the first time we found ourselves in such a situation there are people here doing demonstrations week after week and they don't talk about they only talk about some people that is doing other demonstrations but not the cut to the majority of the spanish senate still house to
approve the measure is presented by my treat and if it does counseling you know will remain a time in this in the moment at least till the next treason elections to take place within the next six months i do question our. barcelona. meantime the spanish foreign minister has caused outrage after suggesting that some of the videos of the police crackdown on cattle and photos were misleading i'm not saying that all are fake beatrice but some of them are and you know there has been a lot of alternative facts and fake news here. i. thought. i knew mercer videos of police using excessive force appeared on social media on the very day of the referendum many cases of were also caught on camera by our own
crews as well witness testimony. we're just helping the people because they were throwing them from up. the stairs and sewing them down to putting them probably here and seeking them so what is on the floor and there is a guy that. the person that's down. meanwhile there is at least one place in catalonia that doesn't want to leave spain the arran valley a small region in the pyrenees mountains claims that if catalonia breaks away from spain they will break away from catalonia has the right to do just that thanks to a law that was passed in twenty fifty. one on the idea that and as for our own valley is a unique territory within catalonia it is self-governing has its own institutions its own language and its own history in culture only nineteen percent of those who voted in the referendum in favor of catalan 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 did you know people are really afraid especially for the economy the economy of their own valley is a very different show because it is entirely dependent on tourism therefore any sense that we can see it makes people really afraid. so hot on the heels of catalonia as referendum two major italian regions overwhelmingly voted for greater autonomy on sunday here's what the leaders of long body and veneto said they're hoping for. some better link up we want to overcome the inability of europe to solve problems and face up to them by offering a new dimension that we want to more united stronger europe one that takes into account the specifics of territories this is what can be simply called the europe of regions were not a page of history will be written in any case vinnitsa will not be the same as
before we want to initiate this in the mind of the democratic i'm compatible in line with the constitutional. the two votes the first of their kind in italy they are non-binding meaning they won't result in any transfer of power as however the two regions may now request greater economic independence from rome and some locals are unhappy at having to subsidise poor up parts of the country now even a toe and long body of italy's economic powerhouses ultimately accounting for almost a third of italy's entire g.d.p. they are home to the top tourism spots industry hotspots including milan and venice and university of milan politics professor medical bus sun he believes the map of europe will soon change dramatically 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 right if it cuts alone yeah. and spain break apart then a lot of things will happen there that will have a definitely a domino effect with damage so scotland and whole sort of other regions there might be easily thirty five to forty five new countries coming up. u.s. bike forces in syria have liberated the country's most lucrative oil field. located in the province of dead as a whole was captured by terrorists in twenty fourteen producing up to nine thousand barrels a day soon became a key money machine for the terror group of a syrian democratic forces have been fighting terrorists mostly on the eastern side of the euphrates river whereas syrian government troops backed by russian air

will retain exemptions from the existing data protection act effectively allowing journalists buying and others through all collect data without your consent that means databases like reuters world check won't have to even inform you that they regard you as a crime risk no matter who else they share your information with global policy expert georgia mouli says the lack of control over the 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 malicious leigh 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
