1:29 pm
ruben. yes well a couple only has declared independence we'll start a constitutional process process offering dialogue to spain to the rest of the international community and we really perceive it democratic and we hope that also international community will interfere and will help us against the spanish burra men that they are trying to use force. to to take the control against. the majority of of society. ruben you can go ahead or. yeah i think you yeah the problem is that anybody in the international sphere is going to give a recognition to these are staid right now this money is going to mean is working to restore their constitution or they're in the region and we have to prodded to protect their heart of the card balance they want to keep their rights they want to
1:30 pm
keep it remain in spanish they want to keep going ahead with their business with the rest of the country they won their rights safe and they wanted to make their allegiance are the one to lose their history their common language they go on. relations all the good things that there have been in. oakland there for example we can we can understand other things say thank you ok carlos you have ten seconds. it's very sad when the you are just saying that you want to save fifty percent of cattle in society you should care about one hundred percent of problems with. violence or the ribbon tell billy-o. political scientists tell an independent and independent campaigner carla sprouts cattle m.p. throw in the palace thank you both for a spirited debate. an important day in catalonia on
1:31 pm
a date further. despite independence being proclaimed so only hours ago lives have already been removed from official buildings in catalonia and dozens. hall when they were taken. with major decisions being made in spain there is reaction coming in from iran the world to understeer churkin to is standing by with the details and joins me now. what indeed have we got on this what's being said. well you know understandably there is plenty of reaction coming in given these major developments happening in catalonia albeit with very few surprises those people within the political establishment throughout the european union and the world really who didn't support the idea of catalan independence continue to not do that despite this declaration
1:32 pm
that has now come out of catalonia now let's kind of walk through from what we've heard throughout the day as catalonia did go ahead and proclaim its independence we have heard from the president of the european council donald to school has said that nothing changes and that the e.u. will continue to speak directly with madrid we've heard from the president of the european parliament who has said that no one within the european union is going to be recognizing this declaration we've also heard from the prime minister of belgium who said quote a political crisis can only be solved through dialogue we call for a peaceful solution with respect for national and international order we've seen reaction from germany of course the german government said they do not recognize this unilateral declaration of independence we've heard from of course the french president also. showing his support and full support to the spanish prime minister mari honor of oil we also heard from the french foreign ministry that have said paris will not recognize independence and will have dialogue only with madrid we
1:33 pm
have heard the e.u. commission president john ward say it's a process within the spanish government and the spanish government's decisions are respected now here in the u.k. of course also plenty of reaction we've heard from downing street saying they does not and will not recognize the unilateral declaration of independence because this vote the referendum on october first was deemed illegal by spanish courts that was a reaction from theresa maine we've also have seen boris johnson say that the u.k.'s position remains unchanged in terms of not supporting this independence but from. scotland's nicholas sturgeon we have seen a reaction of seeing the people of catalonia should have the ability to determine their own future so supporting what has happened in catalonia and given scotland's own sort of plight when it comes to this issue we've heard from the u.s. as well the u.s. state department has the support keeping strong and united spain together also
1:34 pm
similarly from nato that they consider caps on situation an internal spanish affair obviously seeing it as something to be dealt with by madrid so as all of these reactions are continuing to come in it's important to really remember that despite the fact that political leaders throughout the european union have consistently said they don't want catalonia to break away from spain to really keep the european union and tax the pro independence movement in catalonia has repeatedly said that despite the fact that they want to leave spain they don't necessarily want to leave the european union whereas throughout the year we've heard them say that if catalonia doesn't fact leave spain they're going to have to essentially get at the back of the line to get back into the european union so really lots and lots of questions obviously an extremely sensitive subject for the european union given the potential first of all of course we have just recently seen which was sort of a huge blow to the unity of the european union but now this latest development in
1:35 pm
catalonia seen as certainly quite a dangerous trend that could potentially spread throughout other places in europe of course if you remember a handful of places. you know in italy for one and a handful of other examples where this is an issue that could also heat so lots of questions very tense situation so certainly it's clear that the european union is going to be watching very closely what exactly happens in catalonia and spain next another interesting aspect to today's developments artie's analysts to see the church now bring us right up to date on the thank you. across the border in southern france the council on president has already been offered asylum. we were guests of president bush demand. and we decided to offer him and his family hospitality in case they were x.i.i. . well there is plenty of support for cattle on independence
1:36 pm
elsewhere too for centuries the region was a part of catalonia but ceded to fronts in the seventeenth century however it is still known as northern parts with its own region in the language dialect well. where you kept m.p. m.e.p. david coburn says people are not just angry at madrid take a listen to i think it's basically the european union people don't want to be ruled by a faceless bunch of people in brussels the think it was decisions are being taken bers great things they don't like all those decisions are not made to madrid that may didn't in brussels european union has created a lot of problems economically with the euro decision making being taken away people's hands people cannot get hold of representatives by the scruff of the neck and throw them out on seventy five years so i think people are disheartened by central governments of large european states are not doing what they're supposed to
1:37 pm
do and it's not just. the same problems with the boxer you the front of the. flood walls in belgium in various parts of europe but are there problems people want to secede. ok we'll be back in ninety seconds with more global news leaving catalan to the side but this is a full news hour here in r.t. hope to see you in a minute. i . don't. know. probably.
1:38 pm
anyone any goal that resists the american design is if it were just maybe a terrorist to me it can be. a model that has been happening with i.b.m. and then the thought of buying and now the newest other one. when i hope it will. get me no must use the sun m d not to run eventually at the us it would be theo i didn't in the us know how to book it by the spirit of his stump speech. but. yeah he was in the school for the sunday times not
1:39 pm
for myself indeed i must but i feel a lot of the behind of the out. on the she just accounts he did the militia and got very little sleep. in the denim of him to get his beef and out of this not because of the this got to be but i mean. did. you. get to live it up with. r t international in a new report the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog say it is confident that syria was to blame for a deadly attack in the rebel held town of kuhn in syria in april parts of the document were leaked to the media this is how the a.f.p.
1:40 pm
reported on it more than eighty people were killed in the attack on the o.p.c. w. confirm the use of sarin gas at the time the government was widely blamed although it was based on disputed evidence the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog assigned a special panel to investigate the incident saw the u.s. launch a missile strike on a syrian military board which it claims was were the chemicals. syria has rejected all made in the reports of using chemical weapons permanent mission to the u.n. is concerned. it's already questioned the documents credibility. it's probably. even it shows that there are many inconsistency and discrepancies don't fool witness accounts and then verified evidence is still in the report it also uses the same testimonies which sparked our deep concerns in the past. when in june
1:41 pm
after the first un o p c w report was released russia asked why experts hadn't visited the scene of the attack it was also concerned the investigative team accepted some receive from third parties earlier today russia said the investigative commission did not take into account all the remarks it sent beirut based journalist martin j. spoke to us on the story. i don't think the time this post gives any credibility to the report so i think it does the opposite you know there's a general belief with big organizations that if you spend an awful lot of time making an investigation then the more months the post the more credibility that you'll find the conclusion has you know i think this report doesn't have credibility the fact that it was leaked to journalists i think is rose suspicious because. only do that when they need journalist to support their claims so that you have this transition between assertions which suddenly become facts when journalists have to reward the people who gave the report in the first place but i
1:42 pm
compliment seeing the theory so the time lapse which is composed i think goes against the might of the not then you go to rip bear in mind that when months go posts lots of evidence gets washed away by not resources but weather patterns by people. twitter as blocked r.t. from advertising on its platform to be clear it does not affect any are very news feed occurrence which you can still follow as usual. is following the story. lattimer prudence press secretary had a few things to say about it twitter's decision is disappointing he says and r.t. has become a victim of deep prejudice against the russian media going back to twitter's accusations the problem was apparently that you. interfered in the us presidential race they're citing the u.s. intelligence community's report from january although the tech giant didn't put forward any clear accusations of wrongdoing misconduct or breach of policy twitter
1:43 pm
did publish confidential data on how much r t spent on ads on their platforms so we decided to reveal something else which might change how everyone sees the story twitter's own special offer to boost r t on their platform ahead of the vote and whether it r t would have delivered an unbiased point of of view. u.s. election there were many anti-us citing features suggested from special and moggi hashtags to stuff on analytics and research solutions plus a team of experts to help with the strategy and tactical support now that brings us to the cost one and a half million dollars with a bunch of extra options that will be you'll see it here in just a second three point three million and the customized moggi these eighty eight hundred thousand sorry bucks alone well we chose not to except now when twitter's management took part in a private briefing with the u.s.
1:44 pm
senate intelligence committee they never mentioned our team and this special offer or at any other point is the spokesperson for the committee told reporters our editor in chief thinks it's not that simple when it comes to how twitter is dealing with u.s. officials honestly i didn't believe that twitter was controlled by american security services it looked like a conspiracy theory to me but twitter has just confessed it's a pity especially because american news outlets operating in russia will now feel the tenderness of russian tit for tat measures. in november twitter will publicly testify before the u.s. congress will the tech giant mention their special offer to r.t. this time once again i want to stress that we declined it and then that a year later twitter published confidential data on how much we spent on ads that was much smaller than the sum compared to their proposal less than three hundred
1:45 pm
thousand dollars now they banned r t ads even though it was twitter that once suggested we can use their platform to get more involved in covering the american election. thanks as well earlier we discussed the twitter with legal and media analysts loyal had to listen it's just an attempt to distract from other embarrassing revelations this is a deliberate move to get everybody off of what's happening right now to the hillary clinton f.b.i. investigation everybody's favorite now let me get this straight r.t.d. by using ads or ads ok like the world does what did these ads do did they survive the election did they cause or were they evidence of or in d.c. of colucci and what pray tell did these ads accomplish they made
1:46 pm
americans. i think and maybe caused curiosity dissension perhaps that was that collusion so that's a great move for freedom of speech way to go twitter it's discussed well the moves against r t were described as a witch hunt by the russian foreign ministry last month perhaps because of recent actions as well the u.s. justice department has the mum did that r.t. america register under the cold war era foreign agents act said it would result in serious legal consequences google then removed r t you choose premium advertising service in the u.s. without any prior notice in the attacks against this channel started after the u.s. intelligence report alleged russian meddling back in january there's never been any solid proof that r t influence the twenty six thousand u.s. election despite a flurry of attacks in congress. propaganda machine contributed to the influence
1:47 pm
campaign by serving as a platform for messaging using russian government funded outlets russian propaganda media outlets like r t i think it's a propaganda arm of government is definitely not on our side reports have it that russia not only wanted to weigh in in the election with they also want to undermine u.s. confidence of citizens confidence in our electoral process and in our democratic values unless we talk to believe twitter might have been pressured into making the move against r.t. . it's them trying to curry favor with congress before having to go before congress and i know this is coming from from from from some sector in the government we just don't know which one yet but i think that when the hearings take place and twitter comes up and asked to explain this and they're going to come up and say hey look what we did now leave us alone
1:48 pm
it's not they're not going to leave them alone they're going to push them even more so when the hearings take place i think we're going to find out who behind the scenes is done this again it's probably within the american intelligence community but it definitely is pressure it's just the question is from what area of the government is it coming from. of course it's not a coincidence i mean this mayor in the count's me is showing clinton and trump i mean is just another not just a bashing out say but bashing russia as well i don't lot of people they look at the social media accounts like twitter and facebook and instagram and somehow believe that these are the bastions of free speech but we're increasingly seeing sentient if anybody dead talk out against them mainstream narrative so i understand where this attack is now come on and come see what r.t. have done wrong or to we get this unholy alliance between the force the state
1:49 pm
machine the press and the people and politicians it's not a good and it's not a healthy relationship. no i don't think it was an accident or or a mix up or is in any way i think it was directed look you know back during the old days during the cold war it was the soviet union that sought to protect protect its population from infection by any voice that descended from the dissented from the official media now we have american media companies and the american government trying to shut down dissent and make sure we could only listen to c.n.n. . and we see no defense in the scenting voices at all this is a very ominous development it's not so much even r t but what does this say about what the american government the american agencies and now these social media companies are willing to do to compromise information coming to the american people . living on the internet long of a sinister side which few ever experience hidden from public view it's called the
1:50 pm
dark web where the internet's illicit activities reside. false this is just getting. well cyber crime has rocketed in recent years with online attacks becoming more sophisticated what looks like day by day itself the cost of country could double over the next five years cyber security expert describes how the dark web was initially created by the u.s. navy with good intentions. the dark web has become a place where a lot of very bad things are going on over there it wasn't always that way and it
1:51 pm
wasn't meant to be that way the dark web was a set up a originally by the united states navy to be used as a place for dissidents or people in third world countries who want to have connections with the outside world or to provide privacy and anonymity but the problem is is that the dark web has been hijacked by bad people because of the same reasons that it's providing that same anonymity and basically today you have tremendous amounts of cyber crime that are being run off in the dark with different sites different forums marketplaces reflect like look like amazon where they actually selling things broken down into categories and i say selling things i mean everything you could possibly imagine drugs weapons pornography all the bad things you could imagine. it's also a place that is beginning to threaten organizations because if someone is breached and this large data breaches this information can find its way for sale on the dark web or just the dennehy of people being stolen whether it's students at a university whether it's the medicare program in australia which we were
1:52 pm
interested we saw a dark wood cyber intelligence company is a company like ours six that basically is analyzing information that's on the dark ware and other sources like the web and basically providing a threat intelligence picture of the different threats that are out there and these are different in these areas. another big story of the day with president trump giving the go ahead to the release of fellow sins of documents related to be assassination of president kennedy there have already been some interesting discoveries ortiz killer blow up in reports from new york city as we heard from donald trump earlier today in a tweet he says he wants to get all two thousand eight hundred files available to the u.s. public this is related to the assassination of john f. kennedy the thirty fifth president of united states in november of one nine hundred sixty three now those who are unfamiliar what happened was november nine hundred sixty three john f. kennedy and the first lady were traveling in an open car through dallas texas when
1:53 pm
the president was shot by sniper fire the police that arrested lee harvey oswald said he was the prime suspect now two days later after lee harvey oswald the alleged shooter had been had been arrested he was he was being transported by the police and he was then shot while in police custody killed by jack ruby so this is led historians and all kinds of people throughout the united states to ask questions why would lee harvey oswald shoot the president why would the shooter then be killed is later these new files that have just come out are containing some rather interesting facts for example one of the files show. it was that a local newspaper in the united kingdom in cambridge was tipped off twenty five minutes before the assassination someone called a local newspaper and told them that they should get in contact with the us embassy because there was going to be some quote big news and this took place twenty five
1:54 pm
minutes before the us president was shot one of the other interesting things that comes out of this report is when speaking before the warren commission cia director richard helms was being was being interviewed before the commission and he is directly asked quote is there any information involved with the assassination of president kennedy which in any way shows that lee harvey oswald was in some way a cia agent or agent the document then cuts off there's still hundreds hundreds of files to go through quite a bit of material assembled by the u.s. government on the assassination of president john f. kennedy and all the questions raised about it we're still going through them but it looks like so far the information it's been revealed is only leading us to ask more questions. switching gears slightly there's been a huge spike in the cost of a key ingredient in front says most iconic pastry of course it is across the butter
1:55 pm

this is big business against health. this is starting to show. in safety a line. how does it feel to be a share of the greatest job in the world it's as close to being a king as any job there is what business model helps to run a prison now we do or don't my guess is nobody obeys the case and i don't no one comes anymore we don't have to serve them anymore is cost effective this will be wont to do that at the moment they don't give a damn if you do good towards a man. to put them back into the good the louisiana incarceration rate is twice as high as the us senate breach what she is behind such success. under margaret thatcher there was
1:59 pm
a transition away from public housing and government assisted government underwritten public housing and they sold off all the council estates as they're known people bought into the units across the country and they became the land owning the new land owning neoliberal gentrification under the current government in the u.k. it's another socialist scheme of government underwriting property but not for the poor people they do it for the rich people. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to lunch you know it was the really packed a punch. yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently
