a simple war in central africa is cameroon is becoming more entrenched they know of the issue may lie in the country's colo past but it is today citizens are suffering the consequences. g. 7 summit of leading economies has got underway in the southwest and france what everyone is pleased thousands of protesters have staged the rally in the region crossing through into neighboring spain the crowd marched carrying flags and figures of the g 7 leaders including trump. as they called out the economic and environmental policies of the group some demonstrators that express their discontent with the global capitalist system. and. we're here to fight against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction on so many levels. but i know times here to fight against this capitalists rule the world to say we've had enough of the situation that's leading us to total destruction as a species as

a culture and to the destruction of human rights meanwhile french and u.s. leaders have already met for an impromptu lunch at the luxury hotel where the summit taking place but all macro outlined the climate crisis and economic challenges as the key issues while donald trump was praising french wine on the fine weather. head of a summit the french president also hauled out of the need to reform the current international order. this model has come to hold because democracy has degraded because capitalism has degraded and gone mad because we are producing inequalities that we no longer know how to regulate. political analysts they call a bit of it doesn't believe the g 7 countries can change the current international order. and that's a bit surprising i'd say that's about the scary part of his sentence what order is he talking about today we don't have catalysts that we have a world order but the world doesn't have a capitalist order and the world doesn't want this capitalist order not all of well in any case so if he didn't really mention what he wanted and what he was thinking
1:07 pm
about of course this makes no sense if the g 7 is going to discuss an order of either only capitalist countries also concerning the economy and the degree to what mccain called about democracy being degraded i think these are internal problems and this is not just in print international problem it can be an international problem but how credible are these g 7 members talking about democracy degrading if their own democracies at home are very are our own difficulties now look at the other best there are still demonstration the misfortunes today again in france so how credible can borrow be speaking about reviewing that not willing to see better democracies if you can settle the democratic problem in his own country. and home call mass demonstrations have turned violent again the protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police who responded with tear gas. i was i.

the protest movement in hong kong started back in june over draft legislation allowing the extradition of suspect to the mainland china never stray sions of since broadened to other political issues over the last 12 weeks rallies of frequent turn violent and chinese foreign ministry spokesperson this week stressed the government would assist hong kong authorities to restore order in accordance with the law. police brutality is the 6th most common cause of death among young men in the united states that's according to a recent study it comes as california governor signed a new law limiting the use of force by police officers when making arrests officers will out only be able to use lethal force if they believe there is an immediate threat of death or injury or the need nor also makes it easier to prosecute police officers who abuse their power they could face criminal charges civil liability or disciplinary action more details here caleb moore put in just

a warning to viewers you may find some of the content in the report distressing. the killing of unarmed african americans at the hands of law enforcement has been an issue that 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. be a part of. 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
1:10 pm
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 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 study reinforces calls 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 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
1:11 pm
and he eventually stopped breathing. whoa. whoa hold on the only thing that i know nothing about rolled and rolled. and does not exist. in 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 thing that 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 is 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
1:12 pm
doing their job in all states those kind of public service announcements might might be more useful in my book issue with 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 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 pop and r. t. new york. rules and spoke with a former police officer dominic is he says there is a need for broader cooperation between the police and the public. one of the things that these studies which are constantly putting out they don't take into consideration is you'll never seen you'll never see the level of resistance that the subject of the police used force with initiated or dardar or just acted with university the level of impairment university the crime that was at hand there are countless contributing factors that are never put into play in these studies and
1:13 pm
these studies simply come out with gender race and then survival rate deal with law enforcement and the onus on that responsibility is always put at the feet of law enforcement ness not responsible but i would also like to 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 and a more critical watch but you have to have the public being willing to do their fair share too because saurabh appeals odd 7 principle 9 principles of policing is the police of the public in the public or the police so they're fair part of the same cohesive unit and they have to work together. in the face of a global outcry over the wildfires ravaging through the amazon rainforest brazil's president has ordered the military to help protect the area it's an island to say they would not ratify a massive trade deal with south american states unless brazil does more to fight the 5 a huge plumes of smoke can be seen but owing from the fires there is a forest butting out of control at one point this week the smoke was so dense that

1:19 pm
a president who lies even about the weather in the time of day that i think is why this does deserve outrage and backlash i mean while at the opposite end of the political spectrum former deputy f.b.i. director andrew mccabe has joined the ranks of the news outlet least liked by trump c.n.n. his appointment also drew criticism as mccabe was fired for leaking information to the media then lying about it at least 4 times including under oath. the guy who department of justice inspector general found committed federal crimes and is a serial liar could work soon and live to see the commitment to serious journalism i'm jim a cape fired for lying to the f.b.i. caught by the inspector general for an authorized media leaks and worst of all one of the ringleaders in spreading the disastrous russian collusion conspiracy theory his reward a paid c.n.n. contract comical andrew mckinney and c.n.n. are truly a match made in fake news heaven. white house official

to join fox following a stint in the trumpet ministration while obama era politicians from a former director of national intelligence to ex white house communications officials are enjoying being pundits on c.n.n. political commentator dave perkins that thinks former politicians joining politics and media outlets isn't such a good idea i think it's a bad development for media that more and more political people are winding up in front of the cameras it's just not good news media is changing from the watchdog of government for the branch as they are called to a member of a government up or to supplant of government moreover a member largely on one side and against the other and when the media participates politically mostly on one side the public doesn't demand for them to stop it the public demands for other media to participate on the other side to balance them out because it's unfair because of all this easy motion between government and media it
1:21 pm
should not be allowed to happen but i'm not sure there's a way to stop it because i don't want government to be in charge of who gets what job either i'd rather it be free and people just know what it is they're seeing and who they're listening to when they get their information from the media better to know transparency is better than government supervision but i still don't like the direction that it's going. young environmental campaigner is on her way to the u.n. climate summit in new york and she's chosen to sail there on a 0 emission boat instead of using a plane to highlight the impact of aviation on the environment some people do claim she's doing more harm than good.
1:22 pm
too bad 5 people were using airplanes to get the ship back to europe the captain is going to fly because well 0 emissions save in fact more will be emitted. what about the guys you're with home when you get to the us. but he still avoiding the fact crews being flown out to new york to bring it back so more carbon use the normal flight which makes your journey pointless. bus that's even back in a few time with the latest global news headlines. join

paradise with some around and into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while 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 research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with votes because the people have less political power.
