islands broke out after the election commission confirmed windows victory in last month's polls the main opposition candidate said he believed there had been widespread cheating more than 200 people are reported injured and police say they have made it least 20 arrests. of war let's go straight over to jakarta i'm joined by journalist ricardo paris solera last night i understand mobs clashed with security forces there tell us how did that develop and what's the situation there now. well i'm the mom in the situation used to really use some how come out of no one really expected what happened in the night starting yesterday night and then it's in this morning because your doctor said that 6 people have died and around 200 were in your instant to host the thoughts. at the moment the military still being between the policemen and the
8:03 am
protesters in that obama central market. there were around a 1000 people there promised only one out of cocktails. and well the government has already said that this equation might just collect although they hope to have it like today so 6 deaths have been reported you say this is quite serious there have even been reports of a plot to seize crucial government buildings in jakarta have you heard anything about. that soon come when you will follow the. news here that reports from police and there were during all these protests to come to your stop buses or protestors from outside the copy. and regarding the huge amount of units on the field which is more than $30000.00 it's highly unlikely these protesters can actually do something as big as they can over
8:04 am
a government building or. certainly disrupt the whole of it. and most of the people are just you know home and not why not the jobs already sent all the way all the workers back to the rest of us so there's a massive police presence on the streets trying to prevent any further violence how much support does the defeated opposition candidates so beyond so. 7 well you want 44.5 percent of the vote. country with a huge population this means almost 70000000 people voted for him but the key aspect here is that islamist groups support him and how even the protest these groups are proven i mean i think in influencing in politics and society i asked the
8:05 am
governor elections in just a couple of years ago no 2017 so. clearly he has these very nice noisy group. and influence of all that that could actually yes could actually make an impact on what was going to go on in the following days recorder thank you very much for bringing us up to date that was journalist riccardo petter solera there in jakarta. britain's prime minister has offered opponents a major concession in her latest attempt to get parliament to agree to her break that withdrawal busy deal theresa may said that she will allow lawmakers to vote on whether to hold a 2nd national referendum on leaving the e.u. this comes 2 months after britain's scheduled departure from the bloc i've also listened carefully to those who've been arguing for a 2nd referendum i've made my own view on this clear on many many times i do not
8:06 am
believe this is a route that we should take because i think we should be implementing the result of the 1st referendum not asking the british people to vote in a 2nd one but i recognise the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the house on this important issue the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreements bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be ratified. that was the reason may there are for now i'm joined by european affairs blogger and he brags activist john wirth john you've been covering the story for so long this story just doesn't go away teresa mayes back at it again trying to get a deal approved for a 4th time she's now telling. lawmakers in the u.k. that if they will back her deal she'll give them a chance to put it to another referendum you think that it's going to work they're
8:07 am
going to go for they're not really keen on that idea at the moment members of parliament the reactions to my speech yesterday were very negative they see that to a certain extent as a trap in the you'd have to have the government backing such a 2nd vote to resume a hasn't committed her conservative party to doing that to talk so this hasn't won over much of the opposition yet we've already seen that in the numbers of members a problem supporting a referendum is steadily growing but we've not got there yet to have a majority of members of parliament that will be in favor of a 2nd vote so i'm not i'm not holding my breath that that would happen or indeed i'm not holding my breath that this effort will be a success at all as it looks at the moment she will be facing of the defeat now in in 2 weeks when this comes to a vote now may is also trying to soften up resistance to her deal by offering reassurances on the so-called backstop concerning the border with northern ireland let's hear exactly what she had to say on that subject so it's part of the deal we will place the government under a legal obligation to see to conclude alternative arrangements lie december 2020 so
8:08 am
that we can avoid any need for the backstop coming into force i've also this and to unionists concerns about the back start so the new brics that deal goes further to address the. it will commit to that should the backstop come into force the government will ensure that great britain will stay aligned with northern ireland. sounds like a backstop to the backstop to me what do you make of the john is that much of a deal sweetener i don't think so because these alternative arrangements that reason they speak so we don't know what they are or how they would potentially work the conservative party likes this idea of alternative arrangements but that's essentially a magic thinking it's not actually practically workable the e.u. ultimately is the highest priority throughout the brakes and stations for the e.u. was making sure the northern ireland border would stay open and the british government still doesn't have a way of making sure that is compatible with its bracks plans so ultimately on this one to nice with some to reason may but that's not going to work out either if may
8:09 am
fails to get this deal through into each time you say that's unlikely most analysts are saying the same what's next for the u.k. what it looks like the reason they will probably have to go it was conservative party leader because until a couple of months ago the conservatives were riding high in your opinion polls despite the breadth of problems and it looks like it's going to be a catastrophic european election for may's conservatives this thursday in the u.k. and that might finally mean she's going to have to go with a conservative party leader should probably then be replaced by a bright hard liner and as a result then that might be the kind of the 1st domino that knocks over a number of other dominoes leading u.k. pap's towards a new general election so finally we might be getting to a stage where something might actually change rather than just keeping on repeating the same old thing which is what reason has been doing until now this is a rather bizarre situation i mean happening on the eve of european elections which britons are obliged to vote in because parliament can't decide on whether or not actually leave the e.u.
8:10 am
or not. exactly but bear in mind that this is not like the referendum in the u.k. where you had a proto contra for blocks in parliament you hardcore people who want out now we've got around 200 around to reason may know what to reason they want the labor party says it's committed to bret's it but it wants a different form and then you've got to remain is and so therefore among these 4 different groups some palm and you simply can't make a majority and it's really strange because the british want to think of. polman to strong and decisive but he's the very opposite of strong and decisive just now but until you until you remove may i don't see that there's any way forward of managing to get a majority of anything until they have some kind of majority or something in parliament will can make any forward progress forward progress john worth thank you very much for being with us again a blogger and activist john thank you will have more on populism and the e.u. election later on in the show. supporters of abortion rights in the u.s.
8:11 am
have held nationwide rallies to oppose new laws restricting access to the procedure they come as alabama passed a law essentially banning abortion and as other states also consider tighter restrictions religious conservatives hope the ban will provoke legal challenges that will ultimately lead the supreme court to overturn roe versus wade that's the 973 decision that established a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy in the u.s. . the. songs of protest in new york. that i was i was. that was that that. was the marches on the streets in montgomery alabama where the state legislature knocked it the most restrictive abortion law in the country just last week. on the protest in front of the supreme court in washington on the national day of action to stop the bans

8:14 am
hold off 2 rivals in a race that focused on corruption allegations and economic. now to our series all the german constitutional basic law which is 70 years old this month the constitution time into effect in may $949.00 after being drawn up under the supervision of victorious allied powers its aim was to ensure that after the years of nazi dictatorship and destruction of the war the new germany would be built on solid democratic foundations 40 years later when west and east were reunited constitution was adopted in the new brianna fun job. well all this week we're looking at how germany's constitution works in practice in this next report we focus on one of the most controversial issues in the country today a rising rents especially here in the capital berlin activists rose speight to harry
8:15 am
has invoked one part of the constitution saying with ownership comes responsibility and he's using that to justify his fight to expropriate the property owners he says are responsible for the city's housing crisis. i'd like the people who live in this city to be able to keep living here that ordinary people can find a home here. city life is becoming impossible to sun rising rent prices are forcing people to leave the in a ruse to harry his such stories every day he's fighting to make large property companies serve the public good and the constitution requires his main target is
8:16 am
a firm called torture of onan which earns more than 100000 departments. were demanding that the large property companies which are driving up rental prices in the city and they've been bullying tenants for years be socialized the apartments become public leone. insists it's constitutionally possible to expropriate entire apartment blocks when the owners deliberately allow buildings to fall into disrepair chased out the tenants and then carry out expensive renovations . property entails responsibility and must also be used to serve the public good no one can claim these properties are being used to do that in fact the opposite is true. space work with fellow campaigners now dominates his life his job running an online delivery firm has taken a back seat collecting signatures to try to trigger a referendum. but the major political parties say the city needs new apartments
8:17 am
north expropriation of old ones and the property companies say the idea is no more than old fashioned socialism. expressed as a very. heavy weapon it's resulted in very many negative experiences throughout german history particularly in communist east germany and you could see there how things were after reunification with socialized housing in many instruments cities and. we've heard this before of this communist east germany comparison but we're talking about the german constitution as it. is initiative is gathering pace in the city. you're right there dear berliners signed a petition for a referendum to expire of all men on the others on the course $20000.00 signatures is the fast track towards a referendum. on respect talks with major german media everyone

wants to meet him he stresses that what's driving him is a strong sense of justice he says he can't stand by when older people who have lived somewhere for 40 is forced to leave their homes my country is one thing you can do without an apartment you can do without a car use a bike or take a train but everyone needs an apartment we have to enforce this social human right you have the belief that. as mentioned earlier the european elections are about to get underway people recross europe will go to the polls between may 23rd and may 26th to decide who will represent them for the next 5 years in the european parliament just days before polls open findings from a new report suggests that all right and anti e.u. groups are using social media just spread fake news and this information to millions of voters the study was compiled by the online activist group as they
8:19 am
looked at social media platforms in 6 european countries took a closer look at what the study found it identified over $500.00 pages and groups on facebook that were spreading fake news hate and disinfo. now those sites were followed by a total of nearly $32000000.00 people who interacted millions of times with the counts with the accounts in question now the researchers reported the pages in groups to facebook management in response to social media giant remove just 77 of them say to look now at the 6 countries examined in the report germany had the most fake accounts and pages spreading hate and misinformation 248 of them in total poland in italy were not far behind but with $237.00 problematic accounts in poland and $162.00 in italy the u.k. france and spain completed the picture with britain's brags that debate for example
8:20 am
fuelled by 65 contentious accounts well to talk more about this let's bring in our brussels correspondent teri schultz who's been closely following the fake news and online hate speech debate here in europe terry fake news good to see you by the way fake news already being widely monitored and reported on what does this study tell us that we didn't already know. that's right terry we've been reporting on dissent from asian campaigns leading up to the european elections but i was still surprised by the enormous numbers as you laid out there when you think that half a 1000000000 views of these pages have taken place just in the last 3 months i mean there's there's 500000000 people living in the european union it's just clear how widespread this is i was also surprised to find out that people are following the fake pages in 3 times as many numbers as they follow the candidates themselves who
8:21 am
were identified with this fake content they did the other thing that was interesting i think is that in this survey and this investigation by a vase you see very little hand of russia and that of course is something that we have been expecting and they lead a very open dissent from ation campaign against the european union but the avaaz investigators say why would they bother in this case the far right populace have simply adopted the kremlin playbook and have been sowing the seeds of this influence far in advance and that's something that campaign manager christopher schott said is deceptively dangerous it's much harder to detect and it's been going on a much longer time than we realized like what we're seeing is systematic this information it's not one thing is popping up here another one there it is building that works of millions of followers of millions of people and then reaching out further and further and further and snowy but surely kind of deceiving people into believing the same lies and that's the danger and like disinformation is not one week one big
8:22 am
fake news and it's done it is over a very long term playing the long game and slowly but surely amassing more and more people who then build like their own bubble of reality. there is a lot of fake news out there obviously were the researchers able to determine the impact that all of this is having in the 6th countries. that's difficult to tell because as the investigators point out most people won't ever know that they saw fake content because once the pages are taken down it just disappears and most people don't go back and look for the same pages again and that's something a vase is trying to work on as well they have a program that they have proposed to the platforms to facebook in particular called corrects the record and they suggest that anybody who saw this fake content would then get a notification once it was proven to be false and taken down those same people would be notified that they had read lies and that perhaps that might help make
8:23 am
people rethink what they're looking at and perhaps not swallow things the 1st time they see them but as of this point no platform has picked up that that suggestion certainly not in time for the european elections so it's going to be very hard to gauge whether there is any impact on on their voting of course the impact on on simply knowing that all of this false information was out there and being viewed certainly is disconcerting so what can people do to assure that they're not going to fall busy into the fake news or discern from asian. i think what we're learning all the time is that everyone has to be their own fact checker and and take more responsibility for for looking deeper into the things that they read online unfortunately most people aren't getting their online information from fact checked well sourced news organizations like d w and they're simply reading and swallowing and digesting things that flit by on social media so
8:24 am
there have been some measures instituted by facebook by google by a vase for example they can they can. click on advertisements and see who paid for them so that's something that is up and coming but again very very short time until the elections to see whether that will have an impact. just so much d.w. course by the teri schultz there in brussels. now to the khan film festival where u.s. filmmaker quentin tarantino is premiering his latest offering once upon a time in hollywood the cast has many actors you may have heard of brad pitt's land out of the caprio marco grob the all here together with terence you know on the red carpet it's a film that has created by the buzz as you might imagine not least because it was finished just days before this evening's scream. and it's been 25 years

8:26 am
a stunt double in that quest to achieve fame and hollywood we get into a fight i accidently killed. i go to jail. anybody accidentally kills anybody in a fight they go to jail it's called manslaughter. the trial is suggests it's a departure from the extremely violent a static of classics such as kill bill all reservoir dogs but audiences might still get their fix of splatter. the movie is set in the era of the manson family the serial killers who spread fear and terror in california. glamour speaking of which we have our very own monica jones here is going to bring you some business with an introduction so monica understand is the very last day dime for the man behind the wheel the man with the famous gray walrus.
