a 30 percent increase in the number of people who need 8 humanitarian needs in cameroon who have never been greater in the south west northwest in particular we have witnessed the emergence of a new crisis characterized by numerous abuses and violations of human rights but all of these problems have roots that reach far into cameron's past a former german colony fronts in the u.k. were given the mandate to look after the area following the 1st world war then in the 1960 s. france and the british finally gave the territories that independence to former colonies which had been ruled in very different ways became a single state that haven't quite gel together the origins of the. kloof and. the global power of our world but there is no real effort to want to. shout over this doubt the coverage of the independent. country and should

be. no more from my feet have. to be honest. with collusion between. government and the french government to ensure that. the people remain in the country. in. that situation. i think. the. 1000000 countries whether it's in my. bathroom as the world what she is what some already describing as a civil war in central africa is cameroon is becoming more entrenched of the issue may lie in the country's kowloon your past but it's today citizens are suffering the consequences. now in australia and 19 month old

baby girl is ended up in hospital with severe malnutrition after being fed a vegan diet from birth only. she weighed less than 5 kilograms suffered major problems with her bones and was hardly able to move doctors said she had only developed as much as a 3 month old baby and had no teeth because of a lack of necessary vitamins the parents avoided jail the after judge 100 to 300 hours community service instead. one thought in fact that there is no greater responsibility and then by a parent to use a char to care for the child to nurture the child and to protect the child from any harm or injury caring for the go was caring for a very young baby she couldn't sit up she couldn't speak any words she couldn't feed herself hold a bottle she couldn't play was to spend the day in her court running back and forth she couldn't roll over all the way. well it's not the only such case because in may
6:07 am
a swedish couple was jailed after their 18 month old child almost starved to death on of the diet they also merged that the parents hadn't registered their baby's birth and that the child had never been examined by a doctor or vaccinated and then in an earth case parents in the us were arrested for a similar reason they ignored a doctor's advice on what supplements to take when raising a child as a vegan now this case has raised the question of whether it is appropriate to use diets for small children despite the protests though some experts including those in the american academy of pediatrics do think it is acceptable and actually can be good for children however not everybody agrees we discuss the issue with judy moore she's a registered dietician and nutritionist and also with patrick holden he's the founding director of the sustainable food trust. the contact between health as it is now with our health services is quite poor. and children aren't seeing nearly as
6:08 am
regularly or as often as they used to base say 10 or 15 years a care and i think that's one of the problems that house physicists just can't keep keep an eye on the on the number of children that they've got on that case larry and we need to keep a vigilant oyola people who for the probably the best reasons are misguided lake p.d. and their children and healthy diets it's possible to keep the child healthy a batch they do need supplements you can't just rely on a pig in diet yes we need to eat less meat but don't give up put together the right kind of meat and that's good for your health even if you do all that and you help and somebody helps you plan the very last you're channeling greg to their height their genetically potential height because we believe that milk protein and meat processing also are trying to an important factor in growth probably very challenging and you have to be an expert in this to get it right and i would argue
6:09 am
that perhaps it's not necessary to be quite so extreme as i have seen several reagan parents who come to me and say they want to bring up their challenge the gun and once we talk it through and i explain the implications of it and have plans for right to be in the planning of the doc most of them decide against it but i would say that most of them that i've seen race and they were light of the last 2 or 3 years and not getting the going because of their environmental concerns there's a lot of worry at the moment about what that that is correct for addressing climate change and all the other problems with facing is what we would argue that it is possible to eat sustainably to include a whole range of sustainably produced livestock or us in the diet without feeling a little guilty about it and probably your children would be better off with a void of age and not have. very young children and let the children decide when they're old enough maybe after their great spirit is finished with
6:10 am
a trauma begin to actually not and in the mean time allow them to eat a full. diet full of all the. food groups we can address climate change but he she will stay with. us. california's governor has signed a new law limiting the use of force by police officers when they are making arrests officers will only be able to use lethal force if they believe the reason the media threat or death of death or injury the new law also makes it easier to to prosecute police officers who abuse their power they could face criminal charges civil liability or disciplinary action or change comes to a recent study does find that police brutality is one of the top 10 causes of death among young american men and has this report a word of warning there you might find some of its content upsetting. the killing of unarmed african americans at the hands of law enforcement has been an issue that
6:11 am
dominated headlines in the united states for years names like michael brown eric garner and tamir rice bring back memories of mass protest movements and rising anger from the black community and concerned citizens. pay. for. the latest statistics reveal just how systemic the problem of police violence could be police for this is the leading cause of death for young men in the united states over the lot of course about one in every 1000 black men can expect to be killed by police risk of being killed by police peaks between the age of 20 years and 35 years for men and women and for all racial and ethnic groups in fact dying at the hands of law enforcement is the 6th leading cause of death think about it american police officers take more young lives than diabetes influenza and most diseases
6:12 am
only car accidents suicide homicide heart disease and cancer kill more young americans than police officers it's almost like interactions with the police or becoming a public health crisis or a drug epidemic the style of the ring forces schools to treat police violence as a public health issue racially unequal exposure to the risk of seat violence has profound consequences for public health democracy and racial stratification of course police authorities maintain that they do everything in their power to exercise restraint take the case of tony tampa a 32 year old living in dallas texas he called the police himself to say that he was off his medication for schizophrenia and then he needed help after the police arrived responding to his own call they restrained him they laughed at his pleas and he eventually stopped breathing. but old girl. told him don't like the i don't know nothing about rolled and rolled out of the
6:13 am
code only enough for a lunatic got into a new york city the subways and billboards warn the public about dangerous diseases like diabetes there was even a controversial subway ad campaign warning about the results of teen pregnancy so with police being the 6th leading cause of death for young men in the united states should a similar public awareness campaign be waged we decided to ask people here in new york city i don't think i would hope i thing with proper training would help maybe you know train these police like to understand how to take care of lives you know that's what's needed i think more. a more useful public service announcement would probably be about advocating for knowing all your rights and knowing how to talk to police in an encounter knowing that it's legal to record it record them doing their job in all states those kind of public service announcements might might be were useful in my book issue with or with people being killed at the hands of police officers in the usa yeah i think it's 5050 to be honest even playing 5050 meaning
6:14 am
like place officers pass away as well as perpetrators and that's just a shame that's our society the us public seems pretty aware that the country has a problem with police violence these statistics weren't really shocking to the people we spoke to they will come up and are to see the york but we also spoke with a former police officer dominic he said he says it does need to be tough entry criteria for those joining the force raise your standards it's not enough it's not a popular pin him along foresman i truly believe today is the age that law enforcement officers need to be minimally age 30 i don't want to see cops at the age of 21 anymore i think that's not a mental state to where they're ready to go at the human brain doesn't evolve until you're 25 years old i'd like to see that done i'd like to see if you're going to train them better i'd like to see the standard for pay increase i'd like to see command staff go back to law enforcement for the constitute. universes proper trial for profit there's a lot of things i would like to see change inside of there but i would also like to
6:15 am
see the public more held accountable i'm all for the demands of law enforcement being more ruthless it is a job that requires a more critical eye in a more critical watch but you have to have the public being willing to do their fair share too because some robert peel zog 7 principle 9 principles of policing is the police or the public in the public or the police so therefore are part of the same cohesive unit and they have to work together. so in a straight former defense lawyer faces jail there over the leak of controversial files on the war in afghanistan it is in the supremes this week for initial hearings david mcbride is that was released classified material in 2017 alleging a strain troops committed war crimes in afghanistan he was charged for breaching the country's defense act and is expected to face trial next year he claims it was his duty though to these training people to make the documents public i've got a few tricks up my sleeve it's worth having
6:16 am
a go i might fail but i'll be happy if i've tried among the incidents reported in so-called afghan files where the killing of a civilian man and his son during a raid was alleged they were shot by mistake in another case an afghan detainee was shot dead while he was alone within the strain soldier they've mcbride claimed that before leaking the information to the media he did try to bring it to the attention of officials but his efforts were in vain when we discussed the issue with a former cia officer turned whistle blower john kerry attack it. it's so typical it's so common in places like the united states the u.k. australia really the 5 eyes countries to attack the whistleblower rather than to address the crime and to punish those who committed the crime there ought to be hard and fast whistleblower protection laws there are in many countries there is not in in australia but there really need to be legal protections so people can can
6:17 am
go confidently to their supervisors or to their legislature or even to the media to report crimes in this case so i think that that the australian soldiers involved were probably i'm not even sure how to say it but sucked into the same kind of of wartime situation that so many americans have been sucked into you think that you can get away with things you think that they are crimes and eventually there's going to be a whistleblower you know there's there's an old saying that the truth always comes out and i think that that is the case it was the case here it's been the case the united states whether it's cia or n.s.a. or f.b.i. the truth always comes out and so if you don't want trouble just do the right thing . ok well let's turn to france now because yes protests movements back on the streets of paris streisand that was the country house the g. 7 summit that is taking place in the southwest of france in the resort yet rates
6:18 am
where protesters. i'm seeing forces on friday. ah. ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah. ah ah you to gas and to and to g 7 protest as in seaside town authorities 700 prices were arrested and security services are on high lives in the time is currently on drop down. costs and i think the south rusher santa pricing national flag day will be reporting live from the festivities here in moscow just after the break. you know world of big. lot and conspiracies it's time.
6:19 am
to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race is clearly a dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
6:20 am
again you with across russia today people are celebrating the country's national flag day including here in moscow where our own dome quarter is for reporting on events good afternoon again the weather is holding up people. things are getting into full swing it seems. the going afternoon and yeah you're absolutely right we're really lucky with the weather today and we're right here in the center of moscow where you can see thousands of people have gathered here today to celebrate russia's national flag day now behind us just a few moments ago we saw an enormous and enormous flash mobs of people with flags and you can just how bad this fear here is very positive everyone's. having a good time and actually there's a record breaking number of flags here today over 2000 in fact from across the
6:21 am
russian federation road near by over a 1000 young guards at the flags so actually it's not just in moscow where huge festivities and celebrations are taking place thousands of people from across the russian federation are also joining in on the fun let's take a look about let's take a look at what's going on across the russian federation. now the tri color flag itself was made during the russian empire by the emperor peter the 1st and people have been handing out these buttons celebrating 350 years of the flag i even got
6:22 am
a russian flag painted on my face when i wasn't paying too much attention so but the best the festivities aren't stopping right now there's another cell of retore concert scheduled for later today so you're bound to be seeing people celebrating deep until the night but actually there's a lot more planned going up into into through the weekend to the end of the week so we'll definitely be seeing a lot of partying in russia for the for the rest of the week. ok thanks he's going on already that was a don't course of that force in central moscow. not the young climate campaign correct because on her way to the u.n. climate summit in new york and she's chosen to sail there one is 0 emission boat instead of using a plane to highlight the impact. on the environment however some people to claim sanction doing. the good.
6:23 am
people were using airplanes to get the ship back to europe the captain is going to fly because well. in fact more will be emitted. what about the guys who are flying home when you get to the us. but you still avoiding the fact that cruise being flown out to new york to bring it back so more carbone use the normal flight which makes your journey pointless.
6:24 am
looking hair and i say thanks for the company the. what politicians do something ridiculous to put themselves on the law and they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be rich . that you'd like to be cross as a white woman for 3 of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of color. some seem wrong when old roles just don't all. get to shape out just they become get educated and engaged because betrayal.
6:25 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the. cash calendar is daria alfonzo along. their situation page change dard survey or. his 1st words were at a lot of us here a challenging post you've got 2 years to live. i have no doubt that what happened was scriven. let's concentrate maki it is a $1000000000.00 industry these companies have a huge financial motivation to sow these products there are numerous talking showing that doctors were keen to test facts right concentrates free infectivity on
6:26 am
that patient won't give them doctors the wrong stoplight. stuff why they would keep me from sick each of those years day. and people still die i don't always question or so i tried being hard to live when so many have. now why paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field the agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in vain you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while
6:27 am
the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental racism going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away. with that because the people have less political. officer. told him to get up off the ground the officer began to pay him down. and then freeze on the sounds of fighting into a grown man like wrestling essentially the officer who. drew his. wish to go away from the officer. out of his crew. the obvious or did they kind of lunge for the weapon once missed and then what happened on 3 swung at the officers hands didn't hit him i never saw any contact between the 2 any kind went back to
6:28 am
where they were so the officers back here there try again 15 feet apart at this point and that's when the officer pulled out his gun and he did it on 3. you know to go home i differ with you don't focus the muslim people it badly i'm e.l.o. siegel's i suppose oh no the navy i think it's one of the whole heap of money for.
6:29 am
me because it gives me my 1st big call couple to get pussy and we said. someplace he most people almost call me i most came in nobody goes from believe me national security was he was put oh you do i called. him those down but i still mean he got a lot of compass he didn't. deny someone down the list of people not you're not one source who's he live in the field by the title i come on the field vehicle. and also knows all the discipline little models little but if you see how they love i think all those because they have usually not a political muscle monosyllables a lot of. time up what do you think of as a buddhist but on the plus side but a compass you know if you know much about us all to get.
6:30 am
to know a little. say yeah this kid knows. this guy. who put it and then also the square footage you have listened. to. long ago. gott in himmel got you in the. day and we should go the light. at the new one when he do it by. a. little mental someone from oregon when they hear some of this and sound of. there are monitoring. of the fairly men and women and then come by mental. help at night so they will. but our poor figure i once had a key in. church.
