twenty four hour news live from the russian capital international my names you know neil welcome to the program this hour's top story a second consecutive night of violent twenty protests has caused chaos in the german city of humbug anticapitalist protesters clashed with police leaving over two hundred police officers injured almost one hundred fifty people were arrested during the unrest protesters vandalized on looted shops many sprayed graffiti on store fronts leaving messages such as we don't want this on cars were burnt out with the g twenty summit entering its second day many are already comparing this city to a war zone. i
i i. as far as i can tell and i'm from that. i've never seen anything like it i. well the german justice minister has reacted warning that such behavior will not be tolerated every peaceful protest is welcome but that's no free pass for unrestrained rampaging these extremist criminals don't belong in the streets but some courts who have a torturous cause and then just police officers does not deserve any kind of tolan's well away from the scenes outside russia's vladimir putin an us president double trump held extended diplomatic talks on the sidelines of the summit on friday it was their first official face to face meeting and lasted over two hours
the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said the leaders had a very robust exchange. there was so much to talk about all these issues. just about everything got touched on to one degree or another and i think there was a level of engagement and exchange neither one of them wanted to stop share more times i had to remind the president people are sticking their heads in the door and i think even in the first lady at one point to see if she could get us out of there and i didn't work either on the meeting also brought about a potential breakthrough for the syria conflict as the leaders agreed to establish a ceasefire in three areas of the country reporting from hamburg i'm not here salient to try to go. so right stiller soon was really impressed with how the first ever meeting between lattimer putin and donald trump went on saturday morning donald trump said that he was equally happy he called the meeting tremendous as he
was talking to you case prime minister to resume a i had a tremendous witness today. with president bush and we had a really great meetings with a lot of people having a lot to say well it may have been tremendous for several reasons but first of all perhaps because of the breakthrough cease fire that was announced straight after the putin meeting for three regions of syria and you may be skeptical about a breakthrough fair enough when it comes to serious cease fires brokered by washington and moscow that is by far not a success story in the past but previously whenever even heard about such decisions under barack obama on a presidential level it was up to john kerry to try and do the job when it comes to syria diplomacy on the part of the u.s. when it comes to the washing president vladimir putin he has already met and manual macron and. these are three party talks the normandy format minus one if you like
because the cranium president petro poroshenko wasn't there the mood was the twee saw emmanuel macron tapping with latimer on the back and that is something that actually has been doing throughout the whole summit now i can tell you that of course more meetings are still to come but more importantly press conferences all of the leaders including a lot of our putin so i'll be watching that for you. well away from the politics pictures from the g. twenty summit whomping countering the imaginations of many on social media some drew parallels between putin's talks and scenes from the political t.v. series of cards as the russian president appeared to strike a facial expression similar to a fictional kremlin boss viktor petroff body language expert darren stanton broke down for us want all the gesturing means. but there was an interest in the interaction between president putin and trump. around
a table and again they shake hands but this time we noticed president trump sort of pout president putin under the under the arm which was quite mild gesture but again his appraisal is a power gesture to say that you know we're here but i'm still the powerful man you know i'm still the head on chair so to speak so i think you know although the two men have got me to respect for each other. you know i think this this little call leakage this will lead to gestures that i see between the two men especially from president trump that he still wants to be seen as very much the you know the top man and also a source of footage where the both of us he sat side by side. president trump has got this what we call reverse steeple gesture with the hands and that's again confidence and dominance and then we also see president putin with his with legs sort of quite spread apart and again my is a very classic dominance gesture apart from the experts we showed footage from day one of the g twenty summit to people from
a few different countries here's what they made of the world leaders body language . try to find a way to go over something so. try to find a reservation buddy bridges exactly ali making fun of trump two of them are probably still trying to figure out how we go look to talking about ukraine and the need to so oh. please stop maybe north korea. and they talk about the rocket launch. this morning. oh so you put it no no. he's now saying it's sweet cheese it cuts off a red line in the sand what could that be in relation to could be you're a pig could be ninety full susie. what you think these three
a talking about scratching the menu where they going on holiday. they're probably advising him on what to say and not sound so stupid i'm pretty sure he's going to barrus us we'll help you get those refugees just take those refugees out of paris don't worry that's all you've got to do to put him somewhere else and get him out of the country he has to say. it's you could be here it's going to be very. probably would. you want a bridge i'll give you a bridge this is the place prisoner i could sell bridges to the bridge makers of everywhere this is the so good so good what about her she says german that's all right it's going to be like any super super awesome awesome. news based in the house looks like it's class and quiet but with her across. from street. back in hamburg let's check out some more highlights from the someone as world leader said i to impress their country parts of the host. leg. length.
leaving messages such as we don't want this cars were burned to with the g twenty summit now into its second day many have compared the city to. let's cross live now to peter over who's been following the protests in hamburg for us even with some expectation of violent protests this has been particularly shocking as in it. well i did i do think it took quite a few people here by surprise just how big the demonstrations and the violence got on friday evening into saturday those pictures that you've just been seeing of what was going on overnight this is exactly where it was happening you can see just over here the advertising hoardings have been vandalized there behind me is a bank that was all it was locked up but it's now also been all smashed up over my right shoulder there the cash machines had been vandalized earlier on the guy was was taping them up to make sure that they couldn't be destroyed any further and
graffiti of course just outside the this is a scene that we've seen across the street here and also a round different bits of the town as well but i spoke to some of the shop owners that are based here about what their plans were some were saying they were going to board them up saying they were going to wait it out and stay inside the store twenty four hours a day. some owners were covering windows so they don't get broken a lot of places are closed so we can't work productively because a total collapse of transportation you can't come in you can't get out of town. and our freedoms in my opinion you can't organize the g. twenty two in a lift with liberal area especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators my opinion is that this is a completely wrong place to do this. you know well that is one of the questions that is going to be asked in the aftermath of this g. twenty why put it in hamburg it. is one of the major centers for counter culture in
germany one of the major centers indeed for the far left here just over my left shoulder place called the floor it's a major hub for left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot of the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place on friday evening into saturday now i spoke to some of those who were taking part in a more peaceful demonstration on saturday and i asked them what they made of the violent scenes that we saw on friday evening. feeling very very badly because we're living right next door to this contact with a chance in fact and really hate it so that's a point because. i decided today to go to visit demonstration to set a point. is this the violence yesterday evening was awful and i also understand the message they want to send is violence is simply tragic. when i don't absolutely involved what was clear from the very beginning was that the police did nothing the
officers gathered in small groups generally you could say it was incompetent. or we heard about the actions of the police officers there with some people saying they wanted to see. however when officers did spring into action it was very forceful indeed resoled some some scenes of where bottles had been thrown at them police moving in with well they were messing about in the slightest they moved in in full riot gear buttons drawn shields out pepper spray at the ready all the while being backed up by water cannon we understand some two hundred people were detained . and many more people injured there. we were expecting this of course there was a hundred thousand people set to descend here on how these demonstrations with the authorities expecting around eight thousand from extremist groups and they're not just coming from here in germany from all over europe people coming here how is the second biggest city in germany it's very easily reachable from most of northern
europe most of southern europe as well pretty much all of europe very big hold here certainly people have come from across the continent to take part in these demonstrations. one person who fell foul of the demonstrators was the u.s. first lady melania trump she had to cancel some of a range of vents that was due to security concerns she was unable to take on the river cruz or to attend a climate change meeting now potentially considering her husband's views on the. i mean change would have been something that been well anticipated by the organizers unfortunately though her security saying that due to the the situation on the ground here in hamburg on friday those events were canceled but this is the way it looks here right now very different to what we saw on friday night very different what we saw early on saturday morning when the cleanup was underway a lot of to recite a lot of locals and many people taking photographs of what went on bullet. yet when it comes to demonstrations here we are expecting more to build up throughout the
day and we'll probably expect to see similar scenes if not exactly the same scenes as we saw on friday evening later on saturday and of course we'll be keeping an eye on that's bringing you all of the latest here on r.t. our europe correspondent peter all of her life from hamburg thank you let's bring in hugh bronson member of the berlin parliament for representing alternative for germany party always good having the program q let's just pick up on one of the points that correspondent was making there or perhaps the authorities been caught off guard by the intensity the violence of these protests could they have been better prepared or warned in advance. while i mean the deed trying to keep from it wasn't planned yesterday it's been it's been in the planning for a long time now police and intelligence had enough time to gather information to be prepared for this and as peter said how big is well known for its left wing.
sometimes extremist views so this shouldn't have been a surprise for anybody really the level of violence is almost unprecedented why have the protesters chose in this way instead of peaceful demonstrations because because we are seeing echoes from those peaceful demonstrators saying that we want nothing to do with this it's been hijacked but there's an awful lot of violence happening. well i believe that two groups of people who actually traveled to hamburg to take part in this. one group is very peaceful they want to stage their protest they are perfectly in their right every german has the right to assemble freely without weapons it's part of the constitutional law the second group either they didn't want to have peaceful demonstrations they were set for trouble you have these i call them demolition tourists they travel from all over europe and all all of the germany to take part in a protest that is bound to be violent that is bound to destroy shops looting of
supermarkets they had no interest whatsoever in a peaceful protest and sadly this small but very violent group is now attracting all the attention and of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not how you should stage your prostates your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard how much of an impact do these protests have been in any case are the concerns raised by the rallies are they listened to by the leaders of the g twenty do you think. no i don't think they are listening of course they will receive news from their security people they will tell them. there is a. disruption as a war like zone in hamburg but their meetings won't be disrupted the only disruption probably was when mr trump couldn't attend the meeting this is this is basically all you can see that even mr trump and mr putin they didn't really join
that climate conference or the climate meeting date how to separate meeting of their own no i don't think this will reach any of those who are taking part in the meeting and rightfully so because they should be secured and safe and their meeting should not be affected by what is going on outside ok thanks for your take this sorry hugh bronson member of the berlin parliament for the alternative for germany party. thank you for having me thank you and your leaders are sounding the alarm over the increasing numbers of migrants arriving in southern europe we get into ninety seconds time. still with you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles are going. to do so for the tell you that will be gossip and probably worthwhile for the most important day. of advertising think you
are not cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along the border will watch. companies like comcast for example is a company that is an anti-american as they get it as its a company as anti-democratic as it gets comcast own n.b.c. and of course they owe us out of it and of course. parody epic sketches and see think that they're being so liberal that sacking a foreign ministry of the same time serving the terrorists so those people who are in that so situation should understand that they are to.
hello again a surge in migrants trying to get into europe in recent months has led the e.u.'s migration commissioner to admit the situation is getting worse the spike years spent searching for a solution the e.u. seemed very limited results. you said two thousand and ten kenya how are that that now rice has gotten out that i have just paid me thirty to almost twenty percent between t.t.'s meant because of that trade and that will happen also tell. who's to go through a shilling. we need to know if the president the national level to break the smuggling business model. putting more people in the boat still sending out all
boats those months of january february tend to be very slow and instead we had incidents almost every day in boats that were taking more people than they really are or should be allowed to take this very big boat. journey is more dangerous don't question be. the percentage of survival that drops that is good that will lead to you and has to travel in two thousand feet if you believe that. there is no three minute area between you get mission to rescue people and so that i have shares that all share their rescues had means and now i'm back longer than i meant and i'm going to ration that in between it's not sustainable.
to the boat sensors are deliberately turned off by n.g.o.s in order to obscure the location did not does not arouse confidence this x.x.l. . imagine that. you are yet to grow by a child the book you are yet very very. what is happening in front of you need to be is an unfolding tragedy. let's take a look at the current problem it please already seen at least eighty five thousand migrants reach its shores so far this year it's pleading with fellow e.u. nations to share the burden but that's being largely ignored in france a makeshift camp in paris was cleared on friday with the migrants and to gyms and sports centers to the north in cali the former site of the notorious jungle camp
the city has seen budget hotels fill rooms with refugees and then greece which has also taken on a huge share of migrants locals on the island of he also are furious their hotels are having to be used as emergency housing where we get the thoughts of a european political analyst and the european parliament m.p. about the migrant crisis both agree it's a huge problem and that the blame lies with the e.u. but for different reasons. the program the lack of human needs the lack of common goals the lack of the founding out the ideas of the european human the problem is that these are not political refugees these are for most of the economical refugees probably is not the but i think of these men because because you know the agreements between the member states of the european union for the relocation of the refugees and for every state member to accept some of them but this. fusion complete with accept even one refugee this is the the problem is your lack of study
that is the responsibility is in all the wars that nato and western countries have waged in foreign countries so you bring democracy in twenty years later you get to get the microscope in droves. you're with r.t. international going underground looks at the growing backlash against globalization and the new liberal elites but now from a short break. welcome
to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive immunoglobulin that my body gets and some. what it is that it cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity and does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it. applies more. to put money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plasma as well as come from their own motor car and. one of the risks of a donation in it to them is proof that the frequency of pathologies is much higher
in paid donations in it. if i was line. over two years ago he was. in the money using the drug and who runs the blood business. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go on to be press this is what before three of them all can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should.
they were going underground as the leaders of the world's richest nations meet to monks protests and violence at this year's g. twenty in germany leader of the e.u. a block on whose shores thousands are on the drowning or being rescued by charities coming up in the show is the end of globalization we ask former executive secretary of the i.m.f. world bank development committee thomas a burns if neo liberal elites are beginning to feel the burden of the world's working classes and as london celebrates pride the u.k.'s largest bt event we debate gay rights in russia and the dangers of teresa mayes deal with the di u.p.d. and histories of may threatens deportation after twelve months the samu have survived the grim felt our inferno in london we hear a soundtrack to new liberal austerity and as parliament sat on the anniversary of
