charged in the u.s. with conspiracy to hacking government computers the issue of his alleged links to russia is once again being raised in washington. french police used tear gas again to get over to protest the twenty second consecutive weekend of demonstrations against the government. and the german justice ministers roundly criticized after giving an interview to german. would she mentions close ties between berlin and moscow. and we maintain close ties with russia russia was always will be our partner.
live from moscow you're watching r.t. international hawking's review was right you're very welcome on the program with us . and people in the u.s. and u.k. are gathered on saturday to protest the detention of wiki leaks founder julian assange which is arrest the sparked outrage with supporters taking their anger to the streets voicing concerns for the right to a free press. but there. in new york people rallied on times square demanding the immediate release of a songe some protesters held signs others delivered speeches that criticized the pentagon another protest took place in london that was outside the prison where it's believed he's being held sergeant currently shows will to appear at an extradition hearing via video link on may second. after his dramatic arrest the wiki leaks front man is facing a charge of conspiracy to hack u.s. government computers it appears that washington has another axe to grind at least
judging by the vice president's words last week. when he was a cia cia director he called weekly leaks and non-state house intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia we strongly agree with that that's why the justice department is now seeking extradition that might have been just a slip of the tongue as currently of songs hasn't been charged with anything russia related his alleged links to the kremlin though have been on the minds of the media and political chiefs for quite some time more against their looks at whether alleged collusion may still become part of the case against that we can expound on . it did say it years ago a son that the united states wanted him that's why he was in the ecuadorian embassy and he was right america is seeking extradition and if you watch enough t.v. you surely know why his russian connections can we address the question at hand and that is whether or not you can say definitively that russia had no part in this.
was trying to sabotage the twenty six thousand election and have these facts in front of them saw it as an agent agent or at least a provocateur or a collaborator with the russian government there is growing evidence that russia is using wiki leaks as a delivery vehicle for hacked e-mails and other information it was everywhere on every pundit slips for years assad's weekly putin russia meddling echoed and echoed by everyone important enough to be on camera like us leaders it's time to call out wiki leaks for what it really is a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia they acted in concert with the russians to interfere on our elections to help you to hack into what took information from the russians and we stood in a way to disrupt our campaigns and twenty sixteen i don't think that's it's not right to legal and i hope mr sanchez posture gestures should come. he insists for
his role in russian meddling in what you do by their word he's a covert k.g.b. asset on a secret mission to topple the united states that is if you watch enough t.v. if you don't if you actually read the indictment against in the charges no mention of russia not a mention of elections of meddling e-mails or grand plots to topple the united states his crime allegedly was that he worked with chelsea manning to obtain classified documents that showed us human rights abuses in iraq and afghanistan the us government house to. state all the charges they tend to charge mr socks with. extraditions. you felt you were not mr sargent's us the lancet. about
experiment or bring their charts just consider this if the us had anything anything tying assigned to russia or meddling or conspiracy do you think they would have shown it to mentioned it. this is it this is the unique charge he faces and because of how extradition works they can't add any more charges if they get him. the extradition work. needs to go at that stage but except church aside for example. the extradition court case or not extradite somebody to wes the charges that are probably going to. not exist there's no charge. so the extradition court makes very clear we're only going to extradite on those charges are sent to us and. we just i guess directs your sosh.
states. shermans are on now saying balance six are. going by what lawyers and experts are saying the u.s. doesn't have much of a case and if ass and she is found guilty it sets a nasty precedent where journalists can be jailed for posting classified material no matter how vital like the manning files.
this remarkable as it may be the u.s. is now saying that exposing us human rights abuses wanted murder committed by the u.s. military exposing that is more serious than the abuses and murder themselves chilled for many bradley manning was freed by a bomb up but judging by the toxicity on t.v. in washington as shouldn't be too hopeful the. you never know trump is trump wiki leaks i love wiki leaks i thursday police forcibly removed songs from an ecuadorian embassy in london this came off to quito stripped him of physical dorrian citizenship and revoked his asylum was granted certain years ago ecuador says assad's violated the terms of his asylum in numerous ways independent journalist kind of president. because that we could you know is there
a traitor in the media. putin is a very robust and strong person physically quite large and mentally but he has been under the most enormous strain i mean physically had lost a lot of weight mentally he was still the same julian of course but you could see that he's a man who had suffered he owed on the weekends for example the embassy used to close down and you could see that he didn't like being alone rattling around the place he hasn't been outside the door as we're in the last year under the regime of merino were monitoring him inside the embassy to an extraordinary degree there were two cameras in every room except a lot of tree even the kitchen had one also he was gagged he was allowed speak to journalists and the other thing is his visitation rights with the tailors which is quite difficult to see him julian has expected to be thrown out of the embassy since before christmas he was just waiting for it to happen but i didn't think he expected to be dragged out in this way the way it happened was to patrol him to help portray him as
a fugitive rather than allowing him to walk out himself with dignity people consider much more of a threat than you really is you know the district judge and the magistrate court that he went into office straight out to being taken by the police and described him as a narcissist i mean the judge had met him once in the courtroom but day i mean that's a savage thing to say about somebody talk about silly stuff about him you know apparently. be unclean or something like that i mean it's an extraordinary how journalists are able to strike me. it was really important and really important to the future of journalism. as our guest points out media speculation is rife surrounding his stars including the welfare of his cat however we could decided to dispel any concerns and confirm the cat is safe and well released that this video of the feline watching his own of being dragged from the embassy it turns out the cat was rescued by a lawyer back in october following threats to remove it last year the ecuadorian government gave mr assad just set of house rules which specified the risks losing
his companion unless you took proper care of her. and the headlines french police have fired tear gas at yellow vest protesters throwing rocks and bottles on the first weekend after a controversial law came into force new rules ban demonstrators from hiding their faces. i. was. i was i was. the. clashes were seen in paris where police used tear gas against demonstrators twenty seven people were detained more than thirty thousand protested on saturday across the country including around five thousand in the capital. we need to change the
government to change poor people salary establish more social benefits that's what would satisfy us otherwise we will never start i want to microns head we see people chanting micron we're coming for you so i hope to go get him there is no point in chanting it and not doing it. we won't give up we want to give up on anything it's a kind of courage there is part of course but we are not given up we need to keep it up with undoubtedly getting worse and worse. i was there with this government is there i think mr mcroy was clear and they are still the great defeat along through the rest of my decisions what was the great breakthrough or it was just smoke and mirrors it was a complain for the european elections in disguise that's why we are in the streets
today but up until. a rally turned violent in the southern city of toulouse officers moved in after protesters reportedly tried to build barricades a number of demonstrators were said to have been injured more than twenty were detained this woks the twenty second consecutive weekend of anti-government rallies in the country the universe movement started in november with. tests against fuel tax hikes and calls for president to resign associate professor of french and francophone studies at the university of nottingham paul smith thinks that despite a slight recovery and micron's poll numbers movements won't be going anywhere. oddly enough over the last few weeks he's a poll ratings have been going up both for him and his prime minister eight bush leaf and i think that there is a sense in the all the bonus you know whatever other politicians. media commentators say that we actually kind of gave a framework to to be discontent provided that they are right for the discontented
old people to participate and in a city to mustn't success but particularly that is the good it is so recently the contributions are so disparate bringing that all together and turning that into something is going to be very difficult so paradoxically you know looking at the news and looking at the footage you know i think that he's enormously popular but the next three weeks are going to be an up and in fact the european elections are going to be actually pretty. meanwhile religious violence in france is on the rise with a spike in attacks against minorities over the majority of incidents in the country target christians something much of the media seems to overlook all of the reports . anti religious attacks are taking place on an almost daily basis in france but while some incidents seem to attract
a lot of attention others are largely being ignored according to the french observer. for be so nearly twenty nineteen was the worst month for churches in france and stay began collecting data in two thousand and fifteen but in addition to churches other public christian symbols have also been targeted for example some across as a mountain tops public crucifixes has been destroyed or vandalized and public statues of jesus and the virgin mary have been decapitated or destroyed and according to the observatory in france anti christian attacks have sharply risen since the beginning of twenty nineteen this is paris is historic seoul suit peace last month a fire here briefly caught the attention of the media. it
didn't take long for an investigation to say the attack was deliberate and cause nearly a million euro receive damage or take a closer look at how it was reported by some news wires the headline reads the church briefly catches fire. almost a month later the story doesn't appear to have been updated suggesting that a deliberate attack on one of paris is the largest church is just wolf in fact newsworthy at the same time other anti religious attacks not only make the headlines they stay. the latest official figures from the french government give us back to insight into what's happening in twenty eighteen there was a sharp rise in the number of anti sematic incidents five hundred forty one that's up seventy four percent compared with twenty seventeen the incidents were broken
down showing what they were related to including murder violence and threats anti muslim acts to it at one hundred alone since twenty ten meanwhile the number of anti christian acts reached one thousand and sixty three a slight increase compared with the previous year no further detail was. what was shocking to me was the almost casual way that the ministry described it saying quote the number of anti-christian acts is stable over the year when the interior minister downplays or. seems to sideline the acts against christians it fuels the assumption that only minority religions deserve protection unquestionably the increase in anti-semitic attacks is of serious concern but by ministers minimizing the number of anti-christian incidents and providing no details the government signals in
a not so subtle way that this is less important it's unclear who is carrying out these attacks or why they are taking place but there's real concern that the way that the french government and the media generally underplay them means that they could be being significantly underreported meaning the true scale is still unknown. r.t. paris. thousands of protesters flooded the sudanese capital called to one side today at a rally in front of the military's headquarters they call on the army to hand over . power to a civilian government protesters say they will remain in the streets until a civilian transitional council is formed on thursday after months of public protests the army toppled longtime president omar al bashir according to police sixteen people have been killed up twenty wounded in the terraces follow meanwhile some countries including saudi arabia for already of their support for the new
military administration. riyadh also says it's ready to provide humanitarian aid to the country that's according to saudi media. when media and politicians have rounded on the country's justice minister after she gave an interview to r.t. his german sister channel in her seven minutes appearance catarina touched on a number of issues concerning europe including germany's relations with russia artie's peace all of reports from berlin. of the german justice minister catherine of bali is found herself in hot water according to some lost on the political sea according to others it's curious to see how you can completely lose your political compass and no time well what happiness act did she commit she spoke to the media or as some would have you believe the wrong type of media this is all come about after ms barley gave an interview to r.t. german language sister service. and we
maintain close ties with russia russia was and always will be our partner however that doesn't mean we don't take issue with certain things but then that's a natural part of any relationship. nordstrom to is a private enterprise and we as a government do not interfere i also do not consider it appropriate to comment on u.s. plans in any way. now you ask it europe has external and internal enemies these include all who seek to weaken at first of all of course these are the e.u. countries that want to become nation states again and stop their usual cooperation with us in order to pursue their selfish national interests heaven forfend a german politician give an interview to a russian news outlet about issues that affect both nations the minister must be out of her mind according to the german tabloid press justice minister caterina
bali wants to join the european parliament for the s.p.d. and is giving many interviews so far so good but why she took questions from the kremlin propaganda portal russia today is not comprehensible to many in political circles while city use fighting for ever your route to strengthen europe's security asked to do european candidate kept the arena barly gives interviews to russian state propaganda that is twenty four seven to weaken the euro because the rena barely of the europe in the un through body all smiled in unfriendly to those who want to send you a plummeting into chaos with their education freedom of the press sorry make that freedom to talk to the press as long as it's the ones the chairman tabloids approve of. spanish primary school has banned people's from reading little red riding hood and sleeping beauty because their lack of balanced gender perspective
the two traditional fairy tales are among thirty percent of the books available for that age group which have been labelled toxic two hundred titles have been removed from the library at a school in barcelona the latest such move in the catalan capital where gender commissions are currently reviewing similar cases we asked locals in barcelona for their thoughts. but only to the tail that all of us were raised with and we're not traumatized it warns you not to get close just trained i think to remove it it's a bit absurd so that no i think it's a delicate topic in so far as you can't reinterpret when these books were written it's from a historical time it's a matter of tradition one is obviously we have to do a lot of things to make society go forward but i don't know if this should be one of them. has been really with them since i was a child and i don't feel stereotyped or harmed by those books i don't think there are such a harmful thing for a key it's. conditions the way kids think the kids see women girls the other gender
is a bit protected relative to men i think we have to teach them from childhood that there is no subordinate relationship between one and the other these are tales that have always existed they can be adopted can be explained i think we shouldn't be censored you know it's part of the culture it has nothing to do with gender it was that of looks at just how far this revaluation of classic works could go. once upon a time in a land far away you lived a girl and she was strong and independent and grew up to be superwoman like that story of course you do there's nothing little about this red riding hood of the twenty first century not like the old version banned in one of barcelona's primary schools for exposing children to falls gender perspectives matter of fact whereas better when you need them the wolves go to her and carry by x. had he's barely filled with stones and tossed out to die in agony if that's not
animal cruelty i don't know what is another fairy tale bound in that school look at the ugly reality of sleeping gives. people held her charms and felt his blood course hockey through his veins he lifted her it is arms and carried her to a bed gathered the first fruits of love leaving her on the bed he returned to his own kingdom where pressing business of his realm he for a time thought no more about this incident now off to nine months to lead livid two beautiful children one a boy and the other a good. well excuse me does this start with once upon a rape did they really live happily ever after i mean really you know what let's stay on the subject a girl is given away to slavery by her own father sounds familiar
it's. what you say you've got daughters i will forgive you on condition that one of them comes willingly and suffer for you well first the title is outright misleading there's at least two beasts and the bigger one i would argue is the father and yes i would like someone on this egregious human trafficking case asap. india i'm looking at you unicef or how about this plot the protagonist turns halfway through the story murdered his friend has his feet burned while alive is hanged and left for dead. i understand said one to the other there's nothing left to do now but to hang him to hang him repeated the other they tied pinocchio's hands behind his shoulders and slipped the noose around his neck throwing the rope over the high limb of the joint
oak tree they pulled to the fore marionette. that's the original for you before being whitewashed by disney and if little red riding hood is a bad gender example for kids no way this tale can be under the p.g. thirteen mark and with aladin i think the deal was if you wish is not a t.v. show for movies and the seven video games i mean where's the genie's union when you need it and who knows how many more evils lurk under the guise of harmless children's books. or the hundreds of war crimes and counting the fantasy t.v. series game of thrones is being taken to task by australia's red cross the humanitarian organization has been keeping a tally of all the on screen rights violations in the land of west rose.
there are millions of people in america and around the world who are better educated than ray dahlia but in order to succeed on wall street you need to complete lack of empathy this is driven in study after study after study re dahlia has no consideration about the effect he's having of society and the the ruination of the law it is contributing to my being a leak on the system with is hedge fund that's a lack of empathy and play there that takes a certain kind of myopia and stupidity to work yourself into that state. u.s. veterans who come back from war are often told assume stories. were going after the
people who were killing civilians they were not interested in the wellbeing of their own soldiers either there already is several generations of them so i just got this memo from the circular defense officers we're going to attack and destroy the government in seven countries in five years americans pay for the wars with the money others with their lives if we were willing to go into harm's way and willing to risk being killed for a war surely we can risk some discomfort for uneasiness for. long. term.
planning welcome to all the pride when they see the globalization first started to take its proponents claim that it's going to be a panacea to almost all the world's ills lifting millions. out of poverty thief peace through trade and yet as an old saying goes the only free cheese is the mouse trap. we trade commerce similar complications to discuss that i'm now joined by a former prime minister of finland as. prime minister it's good to talk to you thank you very much more personal i'm the person we are recording this conversation on the sidelines of the harasses four on which this year is that it catered to discussing a morally decent form of globalization that formulation in and of itself suggest that there is something off with the current system what is it it's a fact that. many scenes are changing in. the world and globalization is only one trend but. transformation or.
maybe even the more fundamental things but they go hand in hand they. require stick and watches and. globalization. now when globalization is discussed it's usually discussed in economic terms of efficiency a labor costs production cheats etc and there is a legitimate benchmarks for business but not for government because the government has to consider a much broader impact what happens to society as factories more about what happens to the public health sector whether there is an opioid crisis do you think industrial democracies have managed in their pro-social rather than corporate ways they have not understood the rules of the game.
