with france's backing of an army those feelings coach both ways the recent poll of germans found that they feel to get knighted states is a bigger risk to world security than terrorism while eight to ten french people polled didn't pull any punches at all referring to the u.s. commander in chief as a dangerous incompetent racist quite it's understandable that the u.s. wouldn't be entirely thrilled that you are trying to stand up for its own interests but is a little push back from france and germany to the united states ultimately a bad thing peter all of. what we spoke to the former party defense spokesperson about the differences reporting to recently voiced by certain european leaders. german the. president. so the german chancellor. of supplies and c.e.o. of plum she is leaning to the obama clinton mccain
8:31 am
this is saying was your premier was we have. to. clear the first between president. who are linked to the united states not only by need all. of. which. someone would see as a goal. that's how things looking at say fast day here not just gone half full here in moscow but back again at the top.
8:32 am
the british government of the british establishment and mrs rich and mrs mrs may have looks themselves up into his styria about so called no deal just so his inquiry was lead as i just said in say or do it they've allowed the european union to impose completely draco union as all the u.k. which would last anyway. the united states is home to over three million native americans who have suffered some of the worst state sponsored abuse oppression and violence in the history of the world and since the day european colonisers stepped foot on this land the native population has been struggling to survive through genocide war and extreme
8:33 am
poverty they have stayed strong but one of those who don't have the energy to fight the system because the system is crushing them where they stand today we'll show you what happens when a community out of options chooses stand together against the storm rather than give up so now let's start watching the hawks. you. want to deal with the. real that is what. analyze the plot of. what the like you know that i got. there. this is a. native american adults of non hispanic descent are at greater risk of psychological distress and poor overall health than any
8:34 am
other racial group they are also the most likely to have unmet medical and psychological needs. and those needs stem from trauma not only in their current lives but in the lives of those that came before them. john to deal with often talk about d.n.a. remember it's all we have to do is remember it's in our d.n.a. remember it's in our d.n.a. . and that's before anybody was taught but that kind of stuff but in fact it resonates and people clinically that have historical trauma in the united states or people from the african-american community and the first nation and business communities of america. and of course you know people who are descendants of holocaust survivors the jewish committee and others have as well japanese american a term of survivors but no i was i was aware where he was going with this
8:35 am
and i supported it and tire lay and i thought it's about. what is historical traum. the run for freedom as a white man i'm on the run and i'm treated like lakota but as soon as i get in the car and leave nobody's looking at me that way anymore but it's every single frickin day of their life there's no way out of it. we're good night religion never been to an indian reservation you have you probably saw serious poverty alcoholism drug abuse the history of oppression against indigenous people goes back to money and power in the cradle of civilization virgil black lands minister of indigenous affairs red circle society plane one of the one of. the historical traumas that our people have suffered in the past is. the. the abduction
8:36 am
of our spiritual power. if we look at our history as human beings we go back as far. thirty b.c. . when egypt became a province of rome. the roman empire. adopted and abducted certain powers oblast and sacred things sacred items from them. and incorporated it into their daily lives. obtaining that power for their own personal use. and so when we look at moving forward in history we look at. the creation of the valladolid. and they valladolid was a document that was. to discuss whether native americans in this country indeed had souls. and if they did. were they
8:37 am
entitled to basic human rights in fifteen forty two a bishop in mexico bartholomew down a cost stated that europeans had the right to colonize and slave and even exterminate indigenous people because they were in his mind barbaric uninstructed in letters and the art of government and completely ignorant and reasoning and totally incapable of learning anything but the mechanical arts that they are sunk in vice are cruel and are of such character that as nature teaches they are to be governed by the will of others it was also. further in history. affidavit or contract if you will. that was drafted up by the roman. catholic diocese is referred to as the roman pontiff x. . and the roman pontiff x. was. or was an issue to the world and all the inhabitants
8:38 am
that all things inhabited in concord belong to the church and this led to the mercenary this. persimmons of people like john cabot. and josh cartier. and the person that we speak of most frequently today is christopher columbus and while many believe the days of colonization is over the remnants of that genocide still echo across the land very long executive producer of the documentary dodging bullets explains how life is still fundamentally different for first nations people we get pulled over in a car like i did a little of my own and. i responded that very different than if you're african-american or if you're india. because you may get shot you never know you have it you may get shot by this cop you know. that's what that's what historical trauma is every minute you make it shot you make it lets. that's
8:39 am
with the daily existence. and it goes back to if you're a first nation person i mean you think of lynchings. well the largest mass hanging in u.s. history by lincoln's to create right here in minnesota under separate twenty six eight hundred sixty two three hundred three male members of the sioux tribe were found guilty of stealing food that was meant for the reservations back from white settlers who had stolen it in the end president abraham lincoln compromised and instead of hanging all three hundred three he agreed to only have minnesota hanging thirty nine of them so centuries have passed since rome began annihilating native people and cultures we asked antony stately c.e.o. native american community clinic what trauma looks like today for the indigenous and first nations so when you look at the native american population compared proportionately we are more likely to be killed by police that african-americans
8:40 am
and biologicals rather and other racial. and those are things that people don't really think about they think of because while there are so few of us that were insignificant right. but when you look at the partial impact of things like these conditions on the native people. my people these are my relatives the people that live here. that to me is the problem where we are the first peoples of this country we are the first people of the state of minnesota that the credit ojibwe people. we deserve better treatment than we're getting richer. while the opioid up a democrat has ravaged the whole country native americans and american indians have been targeted throughout history for extermination by any means necessary and it seems and many apple ist that means came at the end of a prescription pad. it's chemical work for people been surviving it supported by the water the drugs are not the answer there's never been the solution they are
8:41 am
part of the pharmaceutical companies the bargemen to keep people asleep to keep people still keep using the words prosperity theory because nothing other conspiracists can. here's the theory when your truth my truth his truth is truth everybody's truth is truth we all are experiencing a different way some people experience in this way some people experience it this way but when they all have similar aspects and they all come together then obviously it's happening just because certain people don't want to accept that this is reality and do something about it doesn't mean it's not but the power that people give away every day by consenting to the process that like i said is fraudulent that is oppressive that is you know the gentrification of this country in a mass scale all the way across the board. in the tent city known as the wall of forgotten natives in downtown minneapolis minnesota the issue of opiate addiction is on the front of many minds and despite the fact that less than
8:42 am
a third of residents at the encampment are struggling currently with opiate addiction or abuse their struggle is money many understand and are well aware of how it got into their community on the sort of call well companies and their doctors of course post course and then after they stop it stop and stop pushing an event was being held accountable for their way of what they were hurt by the people that gave or addictive than heroin that was fallen and that became i have put them in. the wallet forgotten natives has had help from one group in particular seems to want natives against terrible and american indian movement. are supporting na na i was here first to jump honest right away. so we're just supporting them doing what we can one day is going down started when our new new was twenty fifteen was having a lot of oldies and gas so being in this field of you know i. offer ducks and
8:43 am
we're going to a lot of me and instead of peanuts i want to do action because action makes those started they start to talk and struggle with. you know. so that way it's interacting with. a and our way and to the stately c.e.o. native american community clinic had this to say about the heroin epidemic and why it's hitting indigenous populations particularly hard the heroin epidemic of course caught everybody in the entire so by surprise but the conditions for this situation here were really out of five by the heroin epidemic because you have a group of individuals at a community that are already significantly franchised and oppressed and excluded from almost practically every opportunity that exists for the rest of the nation right we have the highest rates of poverty we have the highest rates of lack of education we have the highest rates of joblessness we have the highest rates of
8:44 am
practically every social and health and economic indicator that you can thank god that prevents us from being able to be successful i think that the heroin epidemic is a lot of people and all that we are eleven probably will have a lot of drug use and. support nor the comforts of color or the troy really and all that they can make a profit off of who are profiting from the poverty of others is not only found in the drug trade but also in the highrise luxury condos that are popping up in every us metropolitan city while in their shadow the working class and poor are struggling to even find a roof to put over their family's head and as we go to break don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered on facebook and twitter see our full shows at r.t. dot com coming up the second half of our investigation into the wall a forgotten natives in minneapolis minnesota stay tuned to watching the hawks.
8:45 am
to. see. pranking gave americans a lot of job opportunities i needed to come up here to make some money i could make twenty five thousand dollars as a teacher or i could make fifty thousand dollars a year truck so i chose to drive trucks people who rushed to a small town in north dakota was an unemployment rate of zero percent like gold rush is very very similar to gold but this beautiful story ended with pollution and devastation a lot of people have left here i don't know too many people here and just slow down
8:46 am
too much they lost their jobs got laid off the american dream is changing that's not what it used to be. and it's a tough reality to deal with. a statistic from a couple weeks ago came out that show the wealth and income gap around the world a different country and then there's there's the u.s. there's france and then there's the u.k. it's like why the incredible spread between this concentration and then you've got the royalist the people there in the tory party who support the queen whose whole point of bragg's it was to support the queen ok so they just aerialist and a moron a policy because incredible poverty breaks it's all about supporting the queen and getting rid of their world contacts. nobody could see coming that false confessions would be that profile in the spoke
8:47 am
english before the conviction if you look at any interrogation out there what you'll see is a threat promise threat promise threat lie a lie a lie the process of interrogation is designed to put people in just that frame of mind. make the most uncomfortable make them want to get out and don't take no for an answer don't accept their denials she said therefore wait for a sad statement that i will be home by that time the next day there's a culture of odd accountability that police officers know that they can engage in misconduct that has nothing to do with all their cry. sex drugs or financial survival. when customers go by here it is sometimes. good now well reducible our. best undercutting but what's good for food markets is not good for the global economy.
8:48 am
minneapolis minnesota has a population of approximately four hundred twenty two thousand people with a twenty. eight of over one and a half billion dollars with twenty four million dollars allocated for fordable housing this comes just three years after the completion of the u.s. bank stadium the new home of the vikings football team it can comfortably sit over sixty six thousand football fans it was made possible by about three hundred fifty million dollars from the state of minnesota and approximately one hundred fifty million dollars from the city of minneapolis for the billion dollar projects. the super bowl that was held here just last year and netted the city over three hundred seventy million dollars but for the people here at the tent city known as the wall
8:49 am
of forgotten natives they wonder where all that money could have gone. because just a mile from the billion dollar stadium is an encampment of between one hundred fifty. and two hundred tents housing almost exclusively members of the indigenous peoples of minneapolis and their families in canada first came to my attention it was really through the conversations i have of my staff back and probably met arrived when there was maybe like four tents or four or five towns where early august was really when it started to get more attention i think in that. both in the community but also within the city and the county because the tent city on the intamin grew very rapidly one week over spartans next week it was you know forty eight and some light sweet that's kind of politically there but my staff has been down here doing outreach and trying to connect people to come out here services in a number of things for quite
8:50 am
a while and something we've been funded to do to the state of minnesota for probably the last six or seven months and while many news reports falsely claim that the majority of the camp are people with opioid addictions that have been evicted from public housing our investigation found that only about twenty five percent of the residents are there are due to opioid addictions or drug arrests frank pair of national information coordinator for the american indian movement explains currently what's going on right here and always will recall off the wall of forgotten need of just got over one hundred sixty five posts of two hundred tents up and down there's three or four block area they were not your couple of months bringing attention to homelessness of american indians in our own homeland this land here was look or a flat we got people out here from from little kids. to grandmas and droppers in their seventy's remember to use luckily the frankly street corridor that the
8:51 am
encampment is in contains most of the organizations that are available to help american indians but even going a few blocks away for that how has prevented challenge which is where people like anthony stately the c.e.o. of the native american. unity clinic comment i formed a partnership with the red lake nation and also our new zation called the libya outgroup and the three of us went into our partnership together to deliver onsite medical services because it became. fairly evident to me and to a number of the folks that i work on my own with the result my legislation that there were a number of people here who had unmet meant that medical and chronic medical conditions like. the open wound the salaries and that several people didn't use metaphors and several of other people have their conditions so really my my desire to kind of get medicals on side medical services were
8:52 am
recognizing that people were not going to go even five hundred feet to the. clinic that is right at the corner or two blocks to my clinic to get medical care because . all kinds of issues right like. you're homeless and all the things that that all the things that are important to them that mean everything to them or the world or their belongings and their temple and when they would leave to go and do things like seek services either at my cleric or across the street or the outside edge and services and ten people would sometimes to other things which is a big traumatic event to somebody who's almost currently it's mid october the temperature during the day is around in the fifty's but it does get down into the thirty's at night which is why the plan right now is to move the people that are currently living at the wall or forgotten natives across the street to a location behind me which is owned by the red lake nation now eventually there's going to be affordable housing for these people on that limb many on the ground
8:53 am
feel that the city's goal of getting everyone at the encampment into permanent housing by december is lofty at best james alan cross the founder of natives against heroin who've been overseeing the campaign explains why i think is going. well in the over a year i think that the first process of it's get them over to their the center over there they're rather like birds as well whales of all have people that go on the beach or the world for curfew or so we all continue to talk with this city called the mayor and everybody else in the hierarchy of all quieted a place where we're going to have these relatives that i know they don't want to see or take from any coming here to be with their people instead of sleeping in cars or under bridges is a step up and gives them a sense of community that isn't always possible when suffering from homelessness especially when you're a member of an oppressed people but as thomas anderson told me it's not about us and them the wall of forgotten natives is all of us i think that. the police
8:54 am
brutality obviously the lack of understanding of when people need help and healing they look at people as less when it comes to you know nonviolent drug offenses that are policies and statutes that are not law. people are just dismiss they use the word crazy the use the word mentally ill they use the words of labeling to where they can dismiss things that are all that's their problem that's not you know our problem it's not our children that's their children when there were no i guess at all for those directions all all directions all nations all conscious of you being . you know it's the home of dark us that means we're all related we're all relatives. currently in the tent city known as the wall of forgotten natives in minneapolis minnesota holds over two hundred homeless members of the american indian community and according to a little coverage it is gone you would think the driving force behind this homelessness is the opioid epidemic but there is much more to the minneapolis tent
8:55 am
city and those like it around the country while indigenous american indians constitute only about one percent of minnesota's population twenty percent of homeless youth aged twelve to twenty seventeen in the state are american indian according to the northeast regional project near the half of all american indian homeless adults reported having been physically abused as a child a rate thirteen percent higher than the national average the report also showed that american indians experience homelessness are more likely to experience major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder more than their counterparts with fifty six percent reporting a serious or persistent mental health condition now ever mental illness and have buz affect all demographic so what is taking an already oppressed and marginalized group american indians and shoving them off the cliff well. in
8:56 am
a twenty seven thousand u.s. department of housing and urban development surveyed by ramsey county minnesota which included st paul the twin city of minneapolis it was found that quote stagnant wages guy rocketing rents and a lack of affordable housing were the biggest contributors to a rising rate of homeless people in cities across the united states for the residents of a wall of forgotten natives their ability to found a follower of fordable housing has become much harder in the last decade see in twenty ten the average rental price in minneapolis was about twelve hundred and ninety dollars a month by twenty fifteen that price of risen to fourteen hundred fifty thousand dollars a month and by twenty eighteen the average rental price now in minneapolis has jumped to over sixteen hundred dollars a month clyde bell in court one of the founders of the american indian movement told the guardian. it's unfortunate that they have to occupy these urban lands to demonstrate the fact that we don't have access to affordable housing anymore and
8:57 am
the racism is what is pushing the american indians of minneapolis to the brink it didn't happen by accident see a whole new way of making a profit from the struggles of others as emerged from the ashes of the twenty eight mortgage crisis it turns out the banks are packaging and selling portfolios of one family rental properties in urban and suburban areas even better the federal government is subsidizing loans for those investors to buy into those portfolios one investment group just rated fifty one point three million dollars and financing for eight hundred twenty four unit portfolio with with locations in jacksonville florida memphis tennessee atlanta georgia birmingham alabama and houston texas all under the freddie mac's single family rental pilot so while these portfolios cashin most of the new housing being developed in cities like minneapolis is not for young
8:58 am
people it's not for extended families like those at the wall of forgotten natives but for baby boomers flush with cash from selling their homes and downsizing to luxury apartments in the city centers in fact data from the u.s. census bureau indicates that from two thousand and nine to twenty fifteen the percentage of the renting population over fifty five years of age surged twenty eight percent in comparison rentals in the thirty four and under a chaotic category only increased by three percent and finally according to a report this summer from the lincoln institute of land policy vacant homes have increased by more than fifty percent from three point seven million in two thousand and five to five point eight million in two thousand and sixteen so there seems to be fund public funds available for private individuals and corporations to profit from homelessness hit cities like many out there as have to struggle to find homes for a couple of hundred people which begs the question. why aren't we helping the working
8:59 am
class like those living at the wall of forgotten natives instead of subsidizing luxury rentals for baby boomers. be good to each other out there and in this world we are not told we are loved enough so i tell you all i love you this is watching knox have a great day and night everyone. thought i was. a dolly is what i believe. but we got carried away here we care the music with us.
9:00 am
we are a year we were dragged here. by you are going to get rid of those who are not go away who will not die quite. real the heart of what we do is the truth. who should be held accountable. maybe the world should be only because the world is
