i was. i. i. space constitutional crisis it's boiling point as catalonia proclaims independence while madrid moves in to sack the government and seize direct control. a top u.s. senator demands that disclose his account data from wiki leaks and groups linked to it the social networks to testify before congress an investigation into alleged russian meddling in the presidential election. clashes mar the french president's visit to an impoverished south american territory after he rules out state aid
saying he's not father christmas. morning welcomes his r.t. live from h.q. moscow with me in this morning we're starting a big story in from europe a lot to tell you about there the crisis over independence in spain has reached breaking point as the spanish prime minister sachs now the catalan government earlier on friday catalonia finally declared its independence in a counter move almost a month on from its controversial referendum and that opened up some big divisions in the country today in parliament the parliament of our country a legitimate parliament largely expected step and largely for forced. citizens of cathal or any other comes a time when it is up to all of us to maintain the pulse of our country our peace our civic duty and dignity as we have always done and always will without any doubt
lawmakers in the council and government voted in favor secession ten were against and two abstained in protest next the nazi shiela do bensky has been following it all for us in barcelona when the announcement came that's catching on you would be an independent republic i can honestly say as never seen anything like it she we see people screaming yes or c. as it is in catalan and spanish that's announcements and many people said that this was a historic day that not just themselves but previous generations their families that parents and the grandparents had been waiting for it's very exciting at this moment and it's a study got a moment for us years and years and days and years dreaming about leaving the spring which is now. democrats it we are finally in catalonia as a new member of the international community a republic a good feeling. just so that. peaceful people can win.
by all and all our lives are our parents grandparents they are waiting for this thing well it's been quite incredible and a moving feast throughout the day while people are still celebrating in the streets of boston for that declaration of independence senator in madrid actually passed article one fifty five not very much longer off that declaration is independence that allows the government imagery to take back control over catalonia and as we've been hearing thick and fast from the spanish prime minister tonight that means he says he has sent the catalan government he's cool to snap elections. spanish flags have been removed from official buildings now catalonia crowd cheered outside city hall as they've been taken down a day but despite a majority of catalan employees backing the move to break away. to sue feels very
strongly opposed to it so yeah. you won't stop being a part of spain because the spanish government will act immediately to reestablish institutional no mousie but i still think this is the blackest day i'm a history of catalonia i think mr moore is plain a very very dangerous game and he is only incurring the wrath of a madrid government that has already shown a propensity to unleash violence against unarmed civilians so it's a very very dangerous path that mr push. as is the path said by the madrid government mr hawley has bungled this issue from the very beginning yes the spanish constitution is inviolable but when that constitution is used as justification for war the are more ok. helmeted riot police against unarmed civilians the constitution is not worth the paper it is written on but i have what here are two sides both under pressure of manuel roy has created in spain
a mass spanish nationalist movements which is not below him to back off and there's this popular movement you've been seeing on the streets of barcelona and throat cancer when you know which has been pushing for independence and is going to keep pushing those people are not going to go back to the g.d. can't go back in the bottle in my belief really they have left spain and it's difficult to see what spain can do to force them back in you know occupy it with military force whatever not likely really in the twenty first century so it's very difficult although i think this is going to play out for some months i don't see at the end really if people have to say it's a we how you can force them to come back so the bigger picture here after spain voted constitutional right to move in on the rest of region reaction from across the e.u. has been hitting the headlines it's been overwhelmingly supportive from madrid and warnings about similar independence pushes in the block to an assisted churkin it takes up the reaction side of it. there's plenty of reaction coming in given these
major developments happening in catalonia albeit with very few surprises 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 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 mariano rajoy here in the u.k. of course also plenty of reaction we've heard from downing street saying the 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 to recently but from scotland's nicolas 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 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 similarly from nato 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 and this is kind of the we've spoken to you could depend as party of david he believes madrid's decision initially came from brussels is the looking to tell you its grip on its member states. i knew but from chatting
with present you i spoke with a couple of weeks ago the the european union have no intention of interfering in spanish affairs internal affairs i think they've now got the idea with the problems i was taking part in spain that maybe it's for a good idea if he actually keypunch of intel little figures of the various countries because it's just a farce to many other countries in europe who have problems with the central administration spain doesn't govern itself anymore it's governed by the european union decisions alone get made to madrid they're made in brussels maybe the city is the european union has brought this to a head and it's not just speed it in the same brain problems with the boxy in the front of the the the floodwalls in belgium and various parts of europe but are there problems people want to secede but because people don't want to be ruled by faceless bureaucracy in brussels they want to make their own decisions locally and
then have a national government as well catalonia as the richest well the rich a pulse of spades so that they are that's why they're feeling very upset he'll i can tell you will be sent across so the moves the mood the reaction for the day is spain and the event is uncharted waters with this independence crisis. let's look at something else now a senior u.s. senator is demanding that twitter disclose his account details relating to wiki leaks and its founder julian assange including releasing direct message conversations durned feinstein listed her demands in a letter to twitter's founder and c.e.o. jack dorsey and it's a pretty big list let's check it out a few of her demands look like this she wants to know whether twitter identifies a counseling to the alleged russian meddling investigation first off on its methods
for doing so of course requests like that couldn't ignore the so-called propaganda bullhorn twitter accounts are also under suspicion and they're also on that list too there's a list of wiki leaks linked accounts their message history is what dianne feinstein thinks could prove vital to the ongoing investigation with more his color mopin now . feinstein the u.s. senator from california is requesting that the direct messages on twitter sent by wiki leaks be turned over and given to the congress for their investigation you know they're asking for the direct messages of wiki leaks the direct messages of julian a songe as well as the direct messages of the hacker known as good for to who is reported to have been the person who turned over the e-mails of the democratic national committee to to wiki leaks now it's important to note that dianne feinstein who's requesting these direct messages on behalf of congress that she is
certainly no fan of julian aside this is what she said about julian assange in the past well mr sun just one of my most unfavorite people in the world and i believe he's done a great discredit to this nation now dianne feinstein is not the only figure within the us political establishment who has voiced opposition and hatred for julian assad and many figures within the u.s. government many senators congressmen leaders of the military have spoken to julian a songe accused him of being a russian agent called for prosecution of julian assange called for wiki leaks to be shut down this is a widespread sentiment in washington d.c. i mean he's a tool of russian intelligence and if he's such a you know martyr of free speech why doesn't wiki leaks ever publish anything coming out of russia you should be treated as an enemy combatant we should be closed down permanently and decides we wiki leaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia ignorance
or misplaced idealism is no longer an acceptable excuse for lionizing these demons saunders a narcissist who has created nothing of value here lies on the dirty work of others to make himself famous he's a fraud a coward hiding behind a screen disguise a traitor a treasonous and i'm not for the death penalty so if i'm not for the death penalty i want to do it. illegally shoot the son of a as we know on november first the owners of twitter will be testifying before the u.s. congress and this is all part of the investigation of alleged russian meddling in the us presidential elections in twenty sixteen and now we see this additional requests to being given to twitter just a few days before they're set to testify so one wonders is any new information going to be determined from these direct messages or is this the government of the united states in particular the congressional committee putting additional pressure on twitter in the lead up to their testimony investigative journalist dave lindorff
believes the sentence his request violates free speech here there's no indication that wiki leaks is a tool of russia wiki leaks has been major source for american journalism and british journalism for a long time but now feinstein's trying to imply that we cue leaks is somehow in league with this alleged russian effort to swing the election in the united states in two thousand and sixteen even if you took the worst case scenario and you said that russia was behind an effort to get people's perspectives about one candidate or the another in the election that is not a crime so to me and the is private communications on twitter when there isn't any criminality being even alleged is is over the top and a terrible threat to first amendment rights in the united states. but when it comes
for the morning of you stay with me or mosco for the next fifteen minutes present mccrone says he has no father christmas that he won't be bearing gifts from the state has even its french guyana subset quite a few people there. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around corporate corporations washington washington. voters elect a businessman to run this country business. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. under margaret thatcher there was a transition away from public housing and government assisted government
underwritten public housing and they sold off all the council estates. 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. government underwriting property but not for the poor people they do it for the rich people. the french president's visit to the territory of french guyana in south america has been met by violent protests five people rested two police officers were injured as clashes broke out with groups against a month trip. there
where. the demonstrations against mccrone came after he said he would not be giving additional funding to the impoverished region explaining he was not father christmas on twitter and some french politicians were far from impressed by the president's comment there we spoke to the editor in chief of the people magazine about macross latest. is very sure of himself in a bit of good to eat showed it recently we are saying that he's not santa claus the people who are poor and have problems but he did it also in france recently using ports that i wouldn't use off on the new ricin or a very vulgar the french left or right it's not a matter of politics considering that as out of control we now after several cases
like that took off and of course should not give away public money without really looking at what they do it was right in saying of course that a lot of money's being spent and we are not that there are real problems but it's not a recent two to show where his expression or to show his northerns the fact that people come back with their own problems in this case now it's more the unpleasantness of seeing the elite. talk talking con in a condescending way to the people or person present mccombs made a series of other remarks as well that have not served well in the past is a quick reminder that this morning.

a commemorative plaques could soon appear across britain but instead of celebrating the great good they're pinpointing locations of a shady undercover police things and the project was launched at a london bookstore often used by groups who've been infiltrated by the so-called spy cops. i. want to raise awareness not only of the scale of surveillance but of abuses caused by officers working undercover they want complaints to be fully investigated and for victims to receive support despite cops operating officially from one hundred fifty nine till two thousand and eight offices but then infiltrated different groups and human rights organizations some even deceived some women into entering relationships with them to win their trust while working undercover police were forced to compensate some victims and apologized for their offices actions later campaigners fear such practices still continue though and they want more explanation. what i haven't got yet is any information at all not one single scrap
of detail about why these people would talk to take why they had their life simple faith to this extent and why they found themselves sometimes in an intimate relationship with somebody who was being paid to spy on them the reason i feel authorities so to spoil in the west in general is because they consider the less. proportionately. against national security we don't actually know what it is to live for tate's again but if they continue to do that and of course there is no digital spy. just a digital spy. eavesdropping the big day test stuff so david you may say that they maybe don't need it anymore but i do seem to still doing. news updates here of course also on facebook twitter there are loads of ways to keep across the latest roxy here in moscow this is something that morning i believe i
