the round a hundred and eighty demonstrations taking place at cross france the golden globe you they've been joined by one of the main line unions in votes which represent my point seven million people across the country as you can see the police here they're forming lines and barriers trying to stop some people from moving forward towards those crowds but really in the last ten or fifteen minutes or so this protest which was entirely peaceful has a chime for the worst. just cool just in the middle of clashes between the police and the protesters the police have come and pushed the protesters back you might be able to see the crowds about one hundred fifty meters away from. the police of being taking some of the slogans that were made by the protesters away from them we've
also seen some protesters who appear to have been detained by the security source forces here today many of them out in force including some demonstrators who appeared to have been injured there was one man just sitting down a few moments ago with a blood pouring down his head the police are in the middle of this action now where they're asking us to move away the old. that. was. in the line unions getting involved to represent about five point seven million workers here in france but again that idea of voicing their concerns on the streets has been hijacked once more by the violence that we've seen from the small number of protesters. almost a year on from the gravel far along the way which seventy two died a public inquiry has officially been launched it opened with emotional testimony
from victims' families and survivors one spoke of how his son was stillborn just hours after the tragedy because the way you may find some of the following video coming up upsetting. so i held my son. hoping that is what i treat my wife. she's made of the hottest material i know. it was a strength coach would not be. more
survivors will give their accounts over the next week or so the probe will then look into wider issues like the government's response time and preventative actions there are chewed is paid to meet locals who say they're frustrated that how little has changed in this last year. it's almost been a year since the devastating blaze and what's left of the grenfell tower can be seen here behind the scaffolding it's a harrowing reminder of a tragedy that has left many questions unanswered. there are over a hundred tower blocks in london alone similar to
a grandchild and people living here want their government to make sure that it is also like that does not happen again it's like a year now and we're still living in the same situation when we found out altered it was between when. it just costs us praise and strange use cheap material why would you risk the lives of so many people and see these photos in the street. so we know that it's obviously not safe before it could happen again in the moment signs are becoming the book of mormon homes with so what can the residents of tower blocks like these do in an emergency the advise used was to stay put but now according to the london fire brigade is being changed to similar taney as evacuation because of the farmable clopping however the government is yet to ban it tourism a promise to spend four hundred million pounds to replace unsafe cladding on high rise public housing projects just sixteen other tower blocks have had their having
material replaced with non combustible materials so all the authorities doing enough awful lot of government haven't done enough. to the needs of those of us to try going through in terms of the for that experience when family i don't think they're doing enough for them not nearly enough no i think the issue with the clothing they should have resolved upon our. choice i could see i mean the gardens that one keeps it sort of coming over and nothing. what struck me as i've spoken to a number of residents who live here at the child courts estate in camden is the fear in their eyes at the thought that they too could have lost their lives and now they're after clarification from the government as to what's going to happen next to resolve those problems and action to be taken now dear tutor r.t. the u.k.'s housing minister says the government is listening to concerns will discuss a policy review concerning
a ban on funding for materials in construction. all this time all over two thirds of former granville residents to still get to be rehabbed while some eighty two households are still living in emergency accommodation one campaigner whose home overlooks the charred remains of gravel to says he's got little hope that the government's words will turn into anything more concrete we haven't seen corresponding option on to see action it's difficult to believe the government why ask for consultation if we know that the outcome bostic all my tools still around buildings today we shouldn't discuss it in parliament we should take action to d. because we need to have another growth they should be versity there should be presentation if there is no representation in democracy is not democracy is not just issue right to cause more year to argue that we need a diversity in that it is taken of more you to see that we view what was obvious how long will it pass to get justice. palestinian foreign minister is calling for
the international criminal court to launch an immediate investigation into last monday's violence on the gaza border the u.s. opening its relocated embassy in jerusalem sparked a mass protest resulting in the deadliest clashes between palestinians in the israeli military since twenty fourteen the un's also set to start its own probe into whether israel committed war crimes. the odds but i. didn't really believe that of course there. were. no it was not to the best of luck and. was. worth. with. the last week for un human rights council passed
a resolution condemning israel's actions as wholly disproportionate and described it as an indiscriminate use of force but it was among fourteen countries that abstained there are also reports now to the british diplomats are planning to visit the controversial u.s. embassy in london despite earlier condemning the move. the position of your kingdom is we don't agree with the decision of the u.s. to to move their embassy we continue to think that that's playing the wrong card at the at the wrong time but we remain absolutely committed to a two state solution i told the former british ambassador peter ford who accused britain of being hypocritical with his foreign policy. the british government are being very feeble with this they made what seemed we could go to be a principled position by boycotting the ceremony to mark the opening what's described as the american embassy in jerusalem but then days after it appears to be
business as usual many people feel that this is hypocrisy let's imagine what the situation would be if russia had for example recognized east jerusalem as the capital of palestine and set out or made its existing consulate general in east jerusalem an embassy what the british position had been to continue doing business with it no way there would have been horrified exclamations legal arguments would have been found to justify a position of having nothing to do with the russian embassy double standards. donald trump has ordered an investigation into his own investigators it seems an independent inspector general is now set to look into whether the f.b.i. is twenty sixteen probe into alleged russian collusion was legal or not and is caleb maupin explains next extended become difficult to find someone that has been
caught up in a wave of suspicion over little. the u.s. department of justice is currently expanding its investigation into whether or not its investigation of donald trump is legal are you confuse don't worry so are lots of americans but this is just a slice of the pie political leaders on both sides of the aisle are being investigated for criminal offenses with their opponents calling for them to be the locked up make america great again. that's our president and the media is fantasizing about seeing him in handcuffs or if he fires any secret service agent who would allow the federal marshals and what i've done from simply decides i don't have to follow the law i refuse to be held under the law no marshal can get into this white house and any secret service agent that defies me is fired well at some point he's going to have to come out of the
white house trumps old nemesis isn't in the clear either i think that there is a lot to investigate. she may not be in the headlines very much after her electoral defeat however we did find out last week that she's still under investigation much to the delight of donald trump who wants promised to put her behind bars it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the law in our country because you'd be in jail secretary clinton. and then there's obama's topps by john brennan the former cia director he was concerned about because of known russian efforts.
trump called him a disk. race to the american intelligence community and one former u.s. attorney thinks he ought to be assembling a legal team n.b.c. news's consultant the former director of the central intelligence agency the most part is in fact leader of the cia in history needs a very very good lawyer criminal lawyer yes criminal oh yes and then there's devon newness now he's been digging up dirt on the intelligence community but now he's got some of his own we are going to get the documents. members of congress want him to be looked into basically what he has done is he is scuttled and put a cloud over his own investigation and he has become the subject basically he should be going let's forget it it's
a real problem investigations are flying like bullets in a western shoot out high profile politicians are being accused of breaking u.s. laws and could face legal proceedings this is leads fighting one another and this kind of legal war and that has nothing to do really work for the american people and it's a great distraction actually from the issues that are important to the american people but it's consuming the white house now consuming the f.b.i. it's consume the democratic party there's enormous tension between both sides if things are pretty ugly right now pretty ugly between the sides and i think it's going to get worse i really do is this just politics look at some of these charges actually stick. art see new york. refugee agency being accused of illegally granting asylum to hundreds of migrants in some cases after taking cash bribes is the allegation the agency called no told me that it's expanding its investigation into the claims scandal initially broken
in april with media reports of mass bribery in a bridge bureau in bremen. the federal migration agency now says it plans to review a further eight thousand five hundred approvals and nearly a dozen branches that's on top of some eighteen thousand cases in bremen it's thought around twelve hundred asylum claims were approved illegally between twenty thirteen and sixteen one former official and five other employees are also being investigated when professed wish to give the applications don't meet the necessary criteria but will consider whether these decisions to grant asylum should be cancelled or will be also considering sanctions against certain employees of the federal office for migration and refugees listlessly consecrate was the head of germany's migration refugee agency who was also under investigation over whether or not she knew anything about the problems its troubles like those that have seen public confidence in the agency plummet with eighty percent of germans saying their trust has run out and inspired outrage too among some of the country's left wing
politicians it is questionable whether the events in bremen were really the exception trust in the federal office for migration and refugees is shaken we want the office for migration and refugees to be able to work in accordance with the law starting now and not just a few years from now germany's migration agency points out in response just because there's an ongoing investigation doesn't necessarily mean that violations have taken place we got some sort of geo political consultant rainer office he told us the problem is long been known about but no action has been taken until recently. asylum seekers have said that they have paid one thousand euros to their lawyer and then they did not even have to show up in the man and it's obvious that kleeman has taken asylum decisions far too hastily without making also security background checks this might only be the tip of the iceberg and many more similar
cases may have occurred in other. dependencies but itself is not the real problem what is the real scandal is that the detection of the problems has occurred already in twenty fourteen and nothing has been done by by the former minister of interior. next like the facebook bosses again found himself a hole before lawmakers to apologize for the exploitation of eighty seven million users data this time it was european m.p.'s questioning him about the social networks protection standards and its handling of the situation to when it was alleged that cambridge analytical and exploited accounts for years to influence users opinion is the result of work said facebook is taking steps to prevent similar instance in the future but some lawmakers just a little unhappy by the response perhaps that's because some of them spent twice as much time asking their questions the. answer and the market and anxious from these
new brave new world that mr zuckerberg has presented us there was one question raised before who said in which events leading to my question asked you six yes and no questions like you're not a single piece or. ok i'll make sure we follow up and get your answers to those well it emerged in march that fifty million facebook profiles may have been breached by the british political data company that was soon revised up to eighty seven million the public backlash saw the facebook boss take those full pay. age newspaper ads in britain and america to say sorry but it didn't stop the delete facebook hash tag from trending nor did it say the company from being investigated by regulators here's what political activist and social campaigner george barda made of the hearing and the wider facebook data scandal when he spoke to me just last hour. i think there's a sort of pattern that comes out from these these congressional hearings parliament
hearings they're quite stage a lot of the time is taken up with questions and you know mark zuckerberg is quite practiced trying to seem contrite and actually kind of avoiding a lot of detail when whenever any really key questions are asked in terms of the detail his response tends to be not really sure i'll get back to you on that and so i think largely these are sort of pieces of political theater to some extent that from facebook's point of view to be managed to avoid really having to do that much to change it seems. the question is how do we bring these and real public scrutiny in terms of facebook having to account for the way they treat information the way they prioritize some things over others etc and i think these things need to become hugely more transparent and i think we're just at the beginning of working out how to how to get the right balance between holding these
companies to account and allowing governments to interfere with them essentially and not on the other hand allowing governments too much power in the name of controlling facebook to end up being ineffective sent in the other direction. the transparency that we require going forward absolutely has to include the algorithms because ultimately this is the central question what is being shown to who and for what reason and most importantly given so much information will power over the decades and centuries in fact has been about making sure that things are left out of the story and the crucial thing is that there is you know initially transparency and then some sort of accountability in terms of the kind of algorithms that facebook is about to use because these are well they're on the one hundred private corporations they are on the other hand in effect the twenty first century public utility that most people use in
a way that's very central to their lives so getting rid of it as such is not really an option. oliver that fall from the gate could follow all our stories just covered so much more our great site r.t. dot com here in moscow this tuesday evening is kevin owen saying cheers for watching more for me in just over half an hour more great programs in your part of the world but after this short break. well some but of course a lot of b.s. to study well at the kind of mushy finality an eyelash model of the york about how much more outlets to be honest and a half it shall get a letter i learned to whom i had that the. story.
so so so much so much so it. was said before this was useful to you with a lot of. different people and. they've been nice and friendly documents and film you don't want to do with your family the four years for your friend just obviously i told you. i learned what had. the popular which model of how to be a good f.p.s. is b.s. and. the bomb but don't tell except that i wish i had that that would be when i say that i love the idea that the human is more out of that happy on with an
a ha. i don't. but there's just a little how do you have the thought has the. better the comfy image that i know if i can i'll let me off well i know how that the jets are looking to us and i'm happy i will sort it out then. i can was off. for the betterment of the whole to. be the measure. of another bit of confusion with. the us of all you. could record a little on the slow. about a year a story and we'll talk about. something. good. but for me at. least. i.
can you know so it was of the how do you move the multiple injuries among kind enough to sort them to keep sophie home most of the work but it shows you know your mars on the phone to the. people the people from through the sea so you also hear the we are with them to step aside before to be a very long be not be john if you how was. allowed within this room something to host them to. be giving him a diamond. lead one of you know what happens when the sun just. jump you know just when it comes on and then when that she's been she's not going to be something that she loves you know our story you will see now that one of the people in the room with most of what.
you have done that she. gets up and her feel. funny except it feels that. the size of something they are wolf isaac can the federal hide it at your mom's basement but make it to seventy on your own clothes so it does i don't do it i don't look but sit with those that are took it and that's the closet i am hiding and you know. but the something that those who want to make a little do i miss it. i thought it. came to mind that i'm. the kid. you know when you look. out of your story. today coming up you know what i thought i left you know.
as a kind. of sorrow as you see the looks after. the good people at the old look to the give to the physio and you know i'll probably get off sort of it off. the mark and be the only one could get that. up she bore me and i'll. be. going to see you at ten o'clock on awful spanish with their religion on. a day no. matter to me. and you know he said we have been shot to fifty two often i'll give you mine all of them live up to the toughest we never see while going to mischief. not to. excess you know when i'm started by the will of his. mind feed your soul by sorry he said if you promise to give me some of.
the montreaux found i was often not going to satisfy this she had any but this old false so on and so on mars that if a man in the sun god to see if you only saw in the first place how different it can sense that profound truth will come out of some sort on though i have been just sort of that's enough to set a man in said nothing self but you have not bought it for nothing but something funny enough of you and the other was bought some thought ultimately. for. i don't know. show a little profit with the short. i don't smoke a lot well so look when the mound he was on. the fun. of that got us you know what the clear i mean.
a condom on the opening ceremony of proof of the modelling of the law. of the world you know little of the. fun of making but if in the low enough of the knowledge we have me so that i see it by the law and the one on the ass the next pull in on there but that's not going on with. the little you. know. i. mean can.
