may lie in the country's colo past but it's today's citizens who are suffering the consequences. the g. 7 summit of living economies is underway in southwest france but not everyone is pleased at the gathering thousands of protesters have staged a rally in the region. crowd marched into the french town of beyond with police on standby with water cannons and tear gas and other anti g. 7 rally happened elsewhere in the region thousands of protesters voiced their anger over rich nations economic and environmental policies. that much ok but we're here to fight against this capitalist system that leads to so much destruction in so many levels. but i would say i'm here to fight against this capitalists rule the world to say we've had enough of the situation that's leading
10:06 pm
us to total destruction as a species as a culture and to the destruction of human rights because. i came here to protest against the g 7 and the policies of those countries' leaders it's ridiculous for the heads of 7 of the richest countries to claim inequality is the main theme of this forum well at the same time we see how their own policies bring about inequality the company must like 7 of the most powerful countries in the world have gathered only to divide the world's wealth between themselves they talk about the fight against inequality but i think this is nonsense as always for the past 45 years i have been going to this rallies and i can tell you that none of these summits have ever done anything good for ordinary people meanwhile the head of the european council has described the g. 7 summit as a difficult test of unity and solidarity and the french president said the climate crisis and economic challenges were to dominate the talks have of the summit of many also highlighted 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. the political analyst nicola markovitch says those remarks from the french leader do not stand up to scrutiny. 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 a catalyst that we have a world order but the world doesn't have a catalyst order and the world doesn't want this capitalist order not all the world in any case so if he didn't really mention what he wanted and what he was thinking about of course this makes no sense if the g 7 is going to discuss nor heard of either only capitalist countries also concerning the economy and the degree to what about hong kong about democracy being degraded i think these are internal problems and this is not just imprinted international problem it can be an international problem but how credible are these g 7 members talking about democracy degrading if
10:08 pm

a public health crisis or a drug epidemic the start of the 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 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. both. of them the only thing that i know nothing about rolled and rolled out of the code only b 3 lunatics got. in new york city the subways and billboards warn the public about dangerous diseases like diabetes there was even
10:14 pm
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'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 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 i mean like 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. see new york also spoke with a former police officer dominick is oh he says there's 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 you never see the level of impairment you never see the crime that was at hand there are countless contributing factors that are never put into play in these studies and these studies simply come out with gender race and then survival rate doing law enforcement and the onus on that responsibility is always put at the feet of law enforcement 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
10:16 pm

a trade to dispute. former white house press secretary sarah sanders has announced that she is joining fox news known for its pro term coverage. excited to join fox news as a contributor looking forward to being with the fox and friends team for my 1st hit on september 6th how should acts white house officials be treated when they spend months misleading the public then seek positions of fame and privilege that's all that from the top by a president who lies even about the weather in the time of day that i think is why this does deserve outrage and backlash meanwhile 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 his opponent point excuse me 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

10:20 pm
front of the cameras it's just not good news media is changing from the watchdog of government for the brain sht as they are called to a member of government a participant of government and 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 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. across russia people are celebrating the country's national flag day more than 100000 attended

10:26 pm
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 day 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 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 this because the people have less political power. cash cow and that is dari alfonzo among. those changing pay changed guard served. his 1st words
