so now we're in the middle of the sea as you see there are tens of tens of those caused a leak into the sea to turn out we know that there we are going to sail three out of this one is where and not a good one as it is the last point we can we can reach what at policies are continuing that they want to return to beds and they're continuing the protests but here today in another way this is more of it and the time to break this seize up has been imposed on gaza strip for more than eleven years. so now we're entering the phone out of the closet you started to see israeli warships up. closer to the palestinian boat that they started asking them to leave the sea would still not clear were trying to get closer and to see what's happening but all we see is is right you want ships gone closer getting very close to the palestinian protester
boats policy against one wants to go back to the seaport does as something big happens with now we started to feel that it's getting a bit dangerous. really forces said that to mass was using people to carry out quote propaganda operation and to breach the blockade the i.d.f. said that they also they're also ready to provide needed medical assistance to palestinians who will later be returned to guns. meanwhile this really parliament's debating a new law to ban the filming of its soldiers now those behind this bill say that such recordings are often used to undermine the army's spirit military chiefs have repeatedly stressed that the i.d.f. is acting legally and with restraint despite footage like this going viral.
these amateur videos are insured late on aspects of the conflicts that might otherwise not get brought up in the public debate here in israel and it's very important that we have that debate on the conflict the bill suggests tough punishment photographing i.d.f. soldiers with quote the intention of undermining spirit will that will get you five years in prison intention to harm state security learn the ten year jail sentence no explanations given on just how to decide intent experts have told us that such punishments go against freedom of speach. this is an absurd piece of populist legislation just meant to limit you constrained the freedom of speech freedom of protest in israel something that contradicts the standing principles of this country and by the way this is very hypocritical as well because members of the
right whenever settlers are evacuated they also filmed i.d.f. soldiers this is a time honored tradition in this country in this legislation goes against doubt doubt the right. soldier. there cannot. be. a commercial to get them to call who cannot do everything who's there and they think this is this is. i'm against this law for this legislation because you know when you don't allow people to take pictures of solid jewels it starts with the art to your struggle for them all for a speech you've moved. taking photos of and or whatever this is the end of the marcos of. demonstrators gathered on the streets of naples in italy angered by the president's torpedoing of the euro skeptic coalition's bid to govern the leader of
the five star movement one of the parties which tried to form a coalition joining the march protesters brandished posters bearing the slogan our vote is important early on tuesday leader of the other party in the failed coalition called for a petition to change the constitution to have a directly elected president. the euro skeptic coalition failed to form a government after the italian president rejected their choice of finance minister who was seen as being anti european the president then appointed a pro europe premier minister the fresh elections are now on the horizon it seems and the failed coalition has called for the president to be paid just using him of bowing to e.u. pressure has been looking at the track record of brussels when it comes to getting its way. you can win an election create a coalition put together a plan for reforms and a ruling cabinet but turns out you still don't get to govern well that's if you're in the e.u. and you have
a euro skeptic agenda if you're president i asked for the ministry and authority it's of political figure was not seen as supporting a line that could provide from the essentially this means that the majority of voters who between them opted for the five star movement and northern league two parties with an anti e.u. agenda in march actually don't get to decide the president awaits a red card because he doesn't like one proposed minister and q political crisis possible snap elections is this really how democracy is supposed to work. find a constitution the government can't commit to changing. this is a limited sovereignty it's a piece of democracy there is a way brussels hasn't shied away from warning the new italian government against disobey the e.u. rule book and it looks like it's got its way no matter what the tally in voters
want it and when has that happened before oh yes back in two thousand and five a referendum was held on whether or not to adopt a european constitution here in france as well as in the netherlands voters rejected the idea yet despite that clear unease pushed ahead with branding it as the lisbon treaty three years later which contained many of the changes the constitution had attempted to introduce but this time the majority of the public didn't have a say because parliament simply ratified it island the only e.u. member which stuck with the referendum rejected in this been treaty. but that was so didn't go down well with brussels but i believe we should not rush to conclusions believe the truth is a lie and you should now try to find a solution and despite a clear fifty three percent no vote the irish will back at the polls just sixteen
months later for what must have felt like day finally the e.u. got the answer it was looking for yes you were supposed to jump for joy what about greece the mediterranean country drowning in a sea of its own that its vote is decisively rejected the terms of an international bailout in two thousand and fifteen still efficient i would like to say that the greek people made a historic and brave choice responds well to the existing john logan europe but democracy worked in an unexpected way despite the greeks saying no to a sturdy government venture did agree to a painful bailout plan and what about the dutch who rejected plans by the e.u. to sign an association agreement with ukraine back in two thousand and sixteen. the court cannot just be ratified we have to take into account this no vote well
despite the vote brussels went ahead and did it anyway so while many in the may vote against the blocs plans it seems that the e.u. prefers to have its own way regardless. another day and another scare story how to football's world cup in russia british tabloids are claiming the russian hooligans are threatening to kill gay and transgender fans and it takes a story. as the world cup is just around the corner it seems to be scaremongering gold war from some of the tabloid newspapers here in the u.k. essentially spreading the message of don't go or else and discussing all sorts of possible horrific scenarios that could take place among the one of just many of the latest stories being discussed are legit death threats being made against the community and this is by far not the first time that something like this is being
discussed we've seen headlines talk about things such as russia about to unleash its hooligans how the police are quote thuggish in russia how there is a threat of being whipped by cossack horseman during the world cup this summer as well as talk of racism in hoppers potentially breaking into your phones through wife i when you're there as a fan and while all of this whipping up a frenzy is unraveling we've been hearing officials from both sides really in russia as well as here in the u.k. say that everything is going to be ok among those people was britain's top football police chief who was speaking at a foreign affairs select committee hearing who said basically russia is on top of it and the same message came from the england football association but we've been engaging the last two years in conjunction with the foreign office school so the f.a. that they say to try to see those resources from the russian authorities with
a great number of meetings with them and every time with them there is a consistent reassurance that the spear a she scored a safe at the shows sure to the best of the disability post security team have been impressed with what they see on the ground in the city. particularly organizations going to the confederations cup last year the traffic. coach for the school well the foreign office has also been releasing certain instructions that have been playing down any worry about what could happen during the world cup they have said that among other things since twenty. sixteen five matches involving british teams have taken place in russia and those went without any trouble and of course the fact that british police and russian police have been cooperating ahead of the world cup and british police will in fact also be present on the ground as the world cup unravels earlier we heard from donald telis in england football fan and author of the book we're queer and we should be here he told us that his experience
with russian fans has been very different from what the tabloids to paint. well i'm a black gay football fan and have been for thirty years out here in britain and my personal experience was one of safety feeling safe and feeling secure during the champions league two years ago. the c.s.k. fans against racism we managed even to be interviewed on the pitch but the stadium of c.s.k. with a rainbow flag. i didn't need to hide my identity while i was there and i hope it will be the same for l g b t fans traveling to the world cup. polish defense ministry has asked washington to permanently deploy thousands of u.s. troops in the country poland says that it's directly appealed to the u.s. after nato ignored a similar request for almost twenty years. this president is of great importance
because it deters the adverse three you through things are the only ones in the world that have the ability to defend their positions against the adverse three. articles from don't call to join me in the studio so directly asking the u.s. for assistance why is it happening that's correct neal actually the request came in the form of a document from the polish the defense ministry and it was titled proposal for a u.s. permanent presence in poland and now this document outlined the government's willingness to dedicate two billion dollars to the construction of a military base permanent military base there and it also suggested the location for the base as well as locations for military hospitals and housing facilities for the troops that would be stationed there now russia has already reacted to this the kremlin spokes person dmitri peskov said that he called the move expansionist basically he said that that would inevitably lead to russian countermeasures and
now earlier in may there was the nato spring session and it took place in. poland's capitol in warsaw and on the first day the president of nato is parliamentary assembly said that that power was actually necessary military power was necessary in having political discourse so let's take a listen to what he said. we. see on. russia. it's a bit difficult to see how this stablish min of a permanent us military base in poland would give the government there any more power than it already has because seeing is there's already four thousand nato troops stationed in poland and other ball and the baltic countries such as the stony a lot of the lithuania they're constantly rotating between these countries and maintain
a centrally a permanent presence there another thing is that there's military drills going on throughout europe every almost every month actually and a lot of them occur on russia's border one of which is called ball tops and it actually occurs in poland it's a u.s. led maritime exercise it encompasses troops from seventeen nations it's five thousand seven hundred troops in total forty two ships and two submarines but actually that's going to look like basically nothing in comparison to another military drill they have scheduled it's called anaconda it's supposed to be coming up in november it's it happens actually every every two years it's also in poland but this year they have scheduled something different ten thousand troops are supposed to be in attendance from around ten countries allied to nato and that's all according to nato as website so it's hard to see how a permanent military base in permanent u.s. military base in poland would give the government there any more pull with russia for example. of foreign troops on polish so thanks for the update don't have
culture with me in the. now in other news a russian m.p. was forced to miss the un general assembly meeting earlier this month after finding his visa had been an old constantin course a chore who oversees foreign affairs in the upper house of the russian parliament was added to the u.s. sanctions list back in april two weeks later his visa which allowed him to take part in meetings at the u.s. new york headquarters was canceled and that he had to sit out a discussion of a resolution that he'd actually coauthored. the recent u.s. sanctions against russia targeted more than a dozen top government officials and seven of the country's richest men the sanctions were linked to the ukraine crisis and moscow's alleged attempts to interfere in the twenty sixth in u.s. presidential race constantine costa chief says that washington never explained why he was targeted much earlier with which you're with me because i was added to the think sions list with no explanation the only reason given on the u.s.
treasury department's website is that i'm an official of the russian government it didn't affect any of my personal interests as i don't have bank accounts or assets in the us is made it impossible for me to continue my attempts to bridge the gap between our parliaments then i also had my visa an old we should allow me to take part in the un meetings in the us a week ago i was supposed to attend a general assembly meeting on a resolution that i could. unfortunately i wasn't allowed to take part the same though applies to other international organizations it's a blatant violation by the us as the host of an international organizations h.q. it goes against international law and rules diplomacy i'm assured that i was told it did for my beliefs and political activity which has nothing to do with the united states. as many as seven hundred mexican
children have been separated from their parents at the u.s. border with mexico since october the figures came to light in the new office of refugee resettlement report and it's prompted accusations the trouble ministrations been using excess force this image you can see here in particular of small children and sleeping on the floor that went viral and caused outrage it was assumed and it showed the harsh consequences of traumas policies towards mexican migrants though they later turned out critics were a bit too quick in rushing to judgment. about . the out the outlook this is happening right now in the any debate that matters is how we foresaw government to get these kids back to their families this false the seemingly possible.

somewhere you know is going to stand a whole tale it was like a hundred dollars and i was an ok hundred dollars a day seven days a week that's seven hundred dollars on a course of a whole week and so i just came to the conclusion you know what i get me a van fix it up so that you know i can be comfortable in it it makes financial sense because i get to keep the majority of my money versus just just on the way on housing and stuff like that. is my first and then. get worse. and that's because the. jury cannot survive very long it is van where winter temperatures sometimes drop of the minus twenty. for the time being messy is ready everything has happened so quickly it's very hard to find a place to. makeshift housing known as man camps mine up by the hundreds on the edge of town or close to drilling sites.
