conservative activists in the u.s. are celebrating as a call reconsiders a censorship case against tech giants like facebook and google. russia and the u.s. trade accusations that the u.n. security council over the collapse of the i.m.f. arms control treaty. in the public using russia the united states and the countries that grumpy. but also to a ship captain who faces jail for saving migrants from the mediterranean has turned down a french bravery award using iris of a popular see that as european states still wrangle over what to do with the new comes.
the good morning welcome it's just gone 10 o'clock here in moscow you're watching r.t. international back in servitude activists in the u.s. are hopeful there's a court reconsiders essential case against facebook google twitter and also apple bringing the lawsuit accused the tech giants of bias and of suppressing content from the conservative end of the political spectrum. as more. if you haven't heard of a laura loom or now is the time the young female activists dared to go against the almighty big tag and could actually shake things up more on that in just a sec she's known as someone who's been banned from seemingly all kinds of the central online services from twitter and facebook to pay pal and when i got banned from twitter. and i lost $95000.00 and i got banned and then finally i got an and. i didn't just get depressed i thought straight up to this i don't know but
many of those in america who've heard of laura loom or will associate her activism with islamophobia and far right conspiracy theories most of these people would probably totally back the bands against her while at one point she decided to put up a real fight and court having teamed up with a group called freedom watch she sued apple facebook google and twitter accusing them of working together to intentionally and willfully suppress politically conservative content the lawsuit also alleged before had violated the 1st amendment and the u.s. anti-monopoly serious stuff but 1st the court said we're not looking into this an appeal by lunar followed straight after the tech giants wanted that one nipped in the bud but wow their plan didn't work the clinic is instructed to enter a briefing shuttle on succumbing to this case for presentation to
a merits panel so yeah the merits of this lawsuit will be heard or lunar and coal are way through far from winning the war but they've won this initial small battle which is crucial given how many other conservative or albright figures we're told they're not welcome on this or that online platform and some in the conservative wing did call for legal action before donald trump did so too are they breaking the law mr president well i do. i don't whether it but i tell you what they should be sued only censorship against the right claims have quite often been dismissed as conspiracy theories but hey lately a growing number of the kes and testimonies from those who work for the big tech have indeed pointed to the existence of anti conservative bias we even have blacklists where someone just rushed us shows that there are conservative then they'll be blacklisted between different companies and different teams. that really need to change i see google executives go to congress and say that it's not going
to be late it is not political and i'm just so sure that's not true they're telling people that oh they don't they don't have any blacklist this is all you know they don't have any political ideology they don't have any political bias but it's really clear that they do the tech giant bosses of time and again denied any wrongdoing were just platforms is what they kept saying plus the current legal consensus is that these guys are allowed to moderate the content that appears on their sites or through their apps do you discriminate more on philosophy like anti conservative verses pro liberal no or oppose susan are rhythms don't take into consideration any affiliation philosophy were viewpoint there is absolutely no directive in any of the changes that we make to have a bias in anything that we do we use a robust methodology to reflect what is being said about any given topic at any
particular time and we try to do it objective lee using a set of through bricks it's clear they are worried that at some point they won't be able to get away with just saying now you've got nothing to blame us for well we might have just seen a tiny 1st sign that could be turning certainly if this happened to her this is happened to a lot of people and it's high time that the big tech giants were talents to hunt this there's a conflict. and i think because americans love free speech we love private properties so we love for example when it's a company and we say well that company has a right to do anything it wants to but there comes a point where it's almost like a public utility because they have such a monopoly on communication in general especially in terms of social media so some of these giants that really do have control. they've changed the game you can only come to one conclusion when it seems to only happen against conservatives in
general and and i think that this flies in the face of of our free speech and you know that for most of us in america we could agree that our 1st amendment speech is critical to everything that is freedom and most of us would wish that some of these tech giants would go along with that. russia and china have called for global action to prevent a new arms race following the collapse of a key arms control agreement more school in beijing called a u.n. security council meeting after the u.s. tested a cruise missile previously banned by the i.n.f. treaty rights powers blamed each other for the ongoing escalation. do you realize that because of the u.s. ambitions we are one step away from an arms race that cannot be controlled all regulated in any way the united states will not remain a party to a treaty that is deliberately violated by russia. if this depended only on us we would not reach this dangerous situation the united states is taking the necessary
steps to address the threat posed by intermediate range missile forces being deployed in ever larger numbers by russia and china would you but you know what about you are you going to avoid responsibility for what is happening in future generations forgive you for this russia's present actions are in line with a pattern of aggression that represents a clear threat to international peace and security the russian federation is the sole responsibility for the reason to. use it it will be my just do you know from the stand by your responses to the americans you are returning from a historical situation with. european cities from different sites. was a heated debate at the united nations security council now the united states has recently withdrawn from the i.n.f. treaty the intermediate range nuclear forces agreement and not only has the usa withdrawn from the treaty but the usa recently tested a missile that would have been a violation of that treaty had it still been in effect many are viewing this as an
escalation of a potential new arms race between russia and the united states now when the representative of the united states spoke to the security council they accused russia of being responsible for the agreements demise this is the us representative here today because the russian federation preferred a world in which the united states continued to fulfill its i.n.f. treaty obligations while the russian federation did not we've heard a narrative today that the united states had itself been in violation of the i.n.f. treaty because of our recent flight test which used the m k 41 launcher that was also found in our aid. the sure missile defense system this is categorically false now russia emphasize that its concerns about the m.k. 41 launcher have been proven to be indeed correct and that this launcher could easily be tested in transformed into the tomahawk missiles that were recently tested by the united states and those missiles do indeed violate the treaty now
russia which had been accused of adding violated the i.n.f. treaty had repeatedly requested that inspectors come to russia and see if indeed these allegations from u.s. leaders were true however the united nations and the united states ignored their requests to defend themselves against these allegations of violating the i.n.f. treaty russia asked for dialogue around the issue and this dialogue was ignored here's some of what we heard from the russian representative. in accusing russia the united states and the countries that granta alone with its are ignoring facts and common sense we proposed a closed door meeting to look at misato of this and give full information to convince them that we did not violate the treaty but they refused we cannot understand the arguments from us but we do want to save the treaty china was also subject to us allegations that the security council united states accused china of
boosting its military arsenal as well china responded that it was not correct for the united states to withdraw from the treating and blaming china for their decision was not honest or correct either this is the chinese representative addressing the security council with the i.n.f. treaty is of great importance to not only the u.s. and russia but it's a global peace and security it is an accent to which used china as an excuse for leaving the treaty china rejects the base the psyches nations from the u.s. now the i.m.f. treaty was signed in 1987 it was a key moment in the deescalation and ultimate end of the cold war but. in the united states and the soviet union and the recent decision of the united states to withdraw from that treaty as many concerned about the potential for a new nuclear arms race now many hoped that meeting could be the opening of dialogue toward restoring some kind of treaty regarding intermediate range nuclear forces missiles and such and wherever while
a lot of accusations were exchanged no real consensus seems to have existed among the countries represented at the un security council. when the investigative journalist david says the u.s. is forcing rival into an arms race. the u.s. was preparing to do this. that the fact that they launched this tomahawk missile from a mark 41 launcher proves what russia had been complaining about when the us put these agents missile systems near the russian border russian western border and said oh these are to guard against iranian missiles which of course don't even exist there are no russian intermediate range missiles based around the united states and there aren't any chinese intermediate range missiles based around the united states the united states however wants to return to a situation like pre 987 when the u.s. said pershing missiles highly accurate 300300 kilogram kill
a ton were head missiles all over europe aimed at russia and the danger of these missiles is that they can strike their targets within minutes so it forces countries like russia or china to put their i.c.b.m. signed hair trigger response this is very very dangerous time now and it's a going to lead to an enormous arms race. to german captain of the my can trust can better tell parents in the mediterranean has snubbed to pray for me aboard from prince sequences paris at the pole crissy given its treatment of migrants amref and jones were back in 2017 paying claims by italian authorities in the political and the things that with rescued migrants on board she was challenged with assisting an illegal immigration and could not face up to 20 rooms in jail. we do not need authorities deciding about who is a hero and who is illegal at the same time your police is stealing blankets from
people that you forced to live in the streets while you read protests and criminal ice people that are standing up for rights of migrants and asylum seekers we are waiting for you in paris to show you the different ways we are ensuring a dignified reception for migrants despite the tensions that exist on the subject with the state you'll fight is ours the parish has consistently lobbied for better or worse that consent is for migrants while the city was actually the 1st open a temporary reception center which some 13000 lichens a set of past 3 and it's invested 40000 viewers in a restaurant to feed my kids if the paris mess says they would have done more but for the french government i do not understand why the government is allowing indignity and kiryas on the capital's doorstep between 700 and the 1200 migrants are sleeping rough in the streets in makeshift camps under bridges on
roadsides where they're forced to live in inhumane conditions and does she have a point that the french state has repeatedly cleared migrant camps in paris but when one is dismantled sure enough another suing replaces it michael's government has also been criticised for a controversial asylum and immigration bill in a bid to limit new arrivals that law double to 90 days the time in which illegal immigrants could be detained it shortened deadlines for asylum applications and made illegal crossing the borders as in the fence with a jail time of up to a year but is also really in a position to sort out the problem itself it's been trying with germany to find consensus across the entire a you for a solution to the crisis on. level brussels slamming italy and the eastern european countries for shutting the door was tom migrants this very people critical with the
mayor of paris is doing i don't know what went into the mind. of mine because you see of course they don't welcome you can go. from here and you can see the people sleeping industry that's a tough. people with respect to italy because it is getting most of the mines and friends and take them in in such large numbers so they blame the town and for not opening their bulldozer to the fans don't do that either so it's completely political the thousands of there in the media and maybe because exactly because of the so-called humanitarian probably see which gives them the illusion that they would be. and they won't be i mean the world all be from migrants in not happy at the way that they treated the activists not happy at the way the government to helping the local governments not being happy with the federal government and those federal governments not happy with brussels brussels it seems is not happy either
it's one of huge circle going around and around but it's actually not getting anywhere jollity pinsky auti paris thanks minister this morning we're going to take a quick break we're back there with morning team. when we all make this manufactured consensus public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room sit. room in the real news
room. you know world of big partisan movies lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back our 9th round of peace talks between the u.s. and the taliban is underway in cattle at the moment but a new study has raised concern that any place in afghanistan could be undermined by cia backed militias operating in the country the report by brown university's
watson institute does argue that if a deal is brokered in washington withdraws its troops the militias could start causing trouble. militias that operate outside the control of the central states and the chain of command of its own forces will undermine the process of state formation and the prospects for a sustainable peace well the cia has not confirmed backing militias in the region who the things have been alleged throughout the almost 2 decades america has been fighting in afghanistan on his own core to delve deeper into the story peace talks with the taliban could be making some serious headway washington is certainly optimistic about them the conversations are going well the truth will be in the reality of what really happens other going to we can reduce violence will create a space where we can withdraw not only american support but nato forces that are
there as well reducing violence would be great in a country that's seen 19 years of continuous war according to the reports there are 4 key negotiating points at the moment 1st the taliban must guarantee that it will not allow foreign armed groups to use afghanistan as a base for their terrorist attacks an obvious reference to al qaeda which brought the u.s. and its allies to the country in the 1st place in return the u.s. and nato troops must pull out from afghanistan then there's the questions of a permanent cease fire an internal political dialogue and then there's a couple of elephants in the room like for example the future of cia armed and trained afghan militias a new report by a u.s. based brown university's watson institute argues in fact no real peace could be possible unless their future is addressed. throughout the militias reportedly have committed serious human rights abuses including numerous extra judicial killings of
civilians cia sponsorship ensures that their operations are clouded in secrecy our concern is if such units and militias continue to operate from of understanding in afghanistan it's going to. cause the white men to continue because it's not going to be that only the cia that will continue its operation but other countries will follow suit and i think that in such a situation a lot of even it will allow some taliban fighters to continue in effect to groups like they just because. they will see that such such militias continue and i think that these militias are uncontrollable the most infamous of these groups is the so-called coast protection force from summary executions to torture you name the human rights abuses they've probably been accused of it and they're not exactly shy about who they hang around with we are better trained than the afghan national army
helicopters and drones belong to the u.s. but we regularly received requests to support them. the cia doesn't admitting they train these militias of course but they have quite the track record during the soviet afghan war they financed a group of islamic fighters called the mujahideen to fight the afghan government then backed by the u.s.s.r. and guess who came out of the mujahideen the same taliban that continues to be a thorn in the side of the us to this day one of the conditions of u.s. withdrawal is that the cia also will. stop all activities and leave the country newsgroups. despond or real return to the control or taken under the control rather of central government in kabul then this peace process is a complete sham and it will carry about as much we as a bunch of slangs went because these groups will still be operating this year you will still have a presence in the country therefore the us will still object at least. afghanistan
when training more militant groups to fight the ones that turned on you last time lands you in trouble once again it might be time to take a hint donald quarter r.t. . second belgium region will introduce a ban on how loud and kosher slaughter next month alone kosher slaughter does require animals to be alive and healthy if they are killed by having their throats cut pretty stunning is not widely used which is one of the reasons why the practice is banned in several e.u. countries but the jewish and muslim communities are unhappy including in belgium. everyone will just do it at home or in some corner hidden from view i don't think that's what they want to achieve i think that the bans have more to do with 2 legged animals than with 4 legged ones if there is one positive thing that comes out of this latest attempt to curtail religious freedom it's the bringing closer together of jewish and muslim communities where we spoke with the civilian for most
of us about the issues that have been raised. i don't think it is necessarily let me say this. we should never forget they bury him you are only on the fruit of. let's call it right we call it but they find a candidate they could just take that both sides again is a good side and the muslim side effect that i claim big lunatic outright summerfest limits and you know. if you've got big trouble buckling real fundamental if you see them immediately it's never just let differ and go close exist. explode when they think exist in the same country when they impact. the colombian authorities have launched
a crackdown on illegal cocoa farms however farmers there say they need to grow the crops to survive and if the kings the government of breaking a promise to give them aid you can watch our documentary called the cocoa trap threat the day here in r.t. and also online to you but is a pretty. the lonely go home of the employees of the bookies the muzzle people it is better late . than most eagles i suppose oh no the maid. is going to keep the money for. those companies he most people most came in nobody goes from believe me not so squinty was he received. you i got in those can feel a bit cold. because you know they've got honest enough. for their life with a look because if you're not
a vocal know someone else along those lines all of those you know what i've stuck even though those of us with a moment will you know they completely ended up a bit past pick out and gobble it. when it is someone says well if last don't know as they start me no see again my found my loneliness will see at least one in political way of temple they get a. lot that most of the one knows going all those who know me most boat is that's one of the seals. and remind you can watch that documentary throughout the day here and i say that's how the buildings is looking we've got morphy at the top of the.
show seemed wrong why don't we all just don't call. me old yet to shape our. disdained becomes a advocate and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart when she's to look for common ground. in his community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see the kids ask and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments and there's
a lot of conflict within the game and between the teams most of the conflicts i would say overall is around money and money is made. close one on each of those he knows each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of prison complex just to get some 20 year life where. you don't care and. so you don't care mind anything. welcome to sophie and co and. one more turn to peace to create a work of those in the shadows who are bringing the pieces together is often ignored and officials take the credit but not today i talk to
a french businessman who takes no glory in saving lives and in conflict. here expert in peril diplomacy chairman of brazzaville foundation is my guest today. with international mediation politicians and career diplomats feel to it conflicts forces come into play working quietly as private citizens of the spotlight grinding away mistrust and blood feuds patiently bringing warring parties to the table why does parallel citizen diplomacy work well. on the people willing to work. with the promise of nobel peace prizes or t.v. and they get the job done don't you thank you very much for being with us today thank you for everything. to be in such an interesting profession i want to know all about it so you are a noted negotiator lots of success stories in africa i know that you're now trying to get sites in libya to sit down and talk i mean in
a way you're more successful than united nations at least you're getting these guys to sit down and talk. as you would need united nations but also somewhere somehow i needed those or it's a combination of 2 forces which. working palate so you are right now talking about putting down the barriers of mistrust in libya but those barriers are where actually put up way before you and for the reasons that are beyond you what makes you think that an outsider can bring them down. first comes the. knowledge of the country and i knows of course. since my 1st trip to libya was and then $69.00. and better also though his spectacles a condition and is always a completely leaves and. going to one.
wire all easy to show off i think where all countries affected over libya why not giving. pussy to it to exist as a voice and to jointly express what they would like to do is a home country she's my aim is not to make peace east to create. the fundamentals to create. for. peace this is what i'm trying to say what kind of effort do you have to make to actually bring this people together in the same room must test is always some big word yes it should be well but it's.
