11:33 am
now at the time these grotesque experiments using american g.i.'s and civilians essentially as the lab rats at the time they were taking place the public knew nothing about it it was all classified now the public documents indicate these new experiments will not involve human beings human simulators however anyone who is familiar with the not so well publicized very well documented history of u.s. military research will certainly raise an eyebrow. r.t. new york. city has been appearing in the spanish city of boston encouraging the holiday makers to jumpoff the hotel balconies now some of you suggested a potentially deadly practice known as balcony is actually fun now one of the graffiti messages mockingly claims it improves the quality of life for locals a balcony can refer either to jumping into a pool from

11:35 am
oh so man i am out of sight ok then there is no sir like many messages very violent like you against us i guess the same in them like they want to have the city for over and they know it's important to maintain jobs to make some money out of tourists. i think this is some kind of tax why can i have this many tourists from beyond that it's not comfortable for and i would have to decipher this as well i think that's nice to see that's just so open and do so much and it should be accepted. for and for most students aggressive i can do is hope this is the main source of income. but nothing like i just. think i think it took. if i would live here and i would see guys ruining my city. hall style sometimes

11:38 am
i listed news continue to protest for the twenty first friday they israelis continue to fire tear gas canisters and live ammunition on the palestinian protesters. the situation now is escalating as the palestinian protesters are trying to burn you to burn some tires to blur the vision of those already snipers there israeli forces continue to fly more to gas canisters on the palestinian protesters to disperse them and to keep them away from the friends at least two policy means injured in a very very critical condition as you see palestinians are are bracing the palestinian flag. throwing stones on the israeli snipers and this is how the palestinians have been concentrating their guys ready snipers and the israeli forces oh my god live many in this unit you gas canisters are now being fired that gun on the palestinian protesters and as you see it's been fired on the part of
11:39 am
student protesters where your gas canisters are being fired from on directions as you see the place is filled with with white smoke everyone is suffocating from the tear gas fired this is also one of the injuries are from the tear gas fired just right now. no signs for the first time i see this there is no sense right now that the palestinian protesters have that but if you do break the fence well protesters are far too bad nobody ever thought it. was that palestinians have that ability to break up sons dies or a forest is done right in the shooting live ammunition on the part of protesters that we want is going back. i mean while the israeli defense forces say the response of the troops to palestinians trying to break through the fence was in accordance with standard operating procedures and other protest was held in the

promoting peace. well russia is out it again that's the claim in a new article in u.s. magazine the atlantic it says the kremlin has set its sights firmly on meddling in the upcoming midterm elections with russia being to weaken america now as the whole article goes on to explain russia's alleged three step plan to break american democracy first unleash the russian hackers second by a corrupt us politicians on third support those who think favorably of putin is not just of the russian state that has come under suspicion at the atlantic also claims that this channel helps to undermine democracy by inviting on guests who question the mainstream narratives they named brandon struck a example he's the founder of a movement encouraging democrats to walk away from their party for the atlantic fails to address the other channels that also have him as a guest. well i i myself was
11:42 am
a lifelong liberal democratic voter i would say kind of a democrat by default because i'm a gay man and i think that the expectation for a lot of minority groups is that we are supposed to vote democrat and that we are supposed to be liberals strake is spent years as a liberal he now says he's concerned by what the left has become well before the election i was already starting to feel uncomfortable with where we were headed in terms of identity politics and p.c. culture. the political commentator line all told us what he thinks is behind and so you rush articles like that of the atlantic. nobody ever calls these people to task they are paid for by volume or how many likes to do you get how many clicks hey that was a great article factually incorrect. factually a baseless and also the mentality just feeding frenzy of this this monster this mob this monster that you must feed constantly with this no rush no nato no bad guy
11:43 am
no bogeyman so there's many reasons why the boogeyman the straw man the specter of the evil image of russia must be maintained because it fills because somebody talked about one time that the power of nightmares was a horrible b.b.c. documentary and you need something to feel fear you need something in historically in this post you know cold war a red baiting this russo phobic hysteria feeds into this is well and there is an audience for it. occupy london appears to be the latest victim of facebook's recent spree of shutting down pages of social justice movement had its page taken down for several hours at the movement says this is not the first time facebook has tried to censor its content ok by london as a social justice movement founded in twenty eleven as part of a global movement that's organized hundreds of protests against financial elites in
11:44 am
the movement says it's a founding values are equality and diversity occupy london has a significant social media presence about one hundred fifty thousand followers on facebook some say that certain pro palestine posts by occupy london may be to blame for facebook's action and we asked facebook for a comment a social media john has since apologized to occupy london saying it was all a big mistake george barda one of the movement's activists is not convinced. just you know sort of a blip a mistake out of the blue and probably wouldn't mean very much at all but the problem is this is part of a massive rear guard action i think by the establishment you know anyone can go online and see the evidence of this themselves chris hedges is a pulitzer prize winning journalist it's been one of those exposing most of the details of this but effectively what's happened is it in the name of dealing with fake news and many progressive websites that have been a major part of you know bernie sanders jeremy corbyn etc. they used they found the
11:45 am
traffic going down. websites like alter net truthdig that you know mainstream progressive websites are seeing that traffic go down by seventy percent literally and these algorithms devised in private nobody can inspect and have a huge impact on what information the world gets to see about what's going on and that's a hugely significant here going forward the relevant thing today in terms of discussion is still a very powerful force online and has millions of people engaging with its posts and so it's very important that they and others like them on not in the name of fake news effectively removed from most people's internet searches and i think this is a huge issue going forward bearing in mind that google and facebook are very very close to the american establishment you know the washington post is owned by jeff bezos he was as an answer but not surprisingly he's very keen on using the washington post to make sure that the internet allows his articles to come up at the top of such as an aunt's. thanks so much for sharing your saturday with us here
11:46 am
at our international live from moscow twenty five minutes now past want to be able to start today nicky aaron is going to be joining you in about twenty five minutes with more of your top worldwide stories. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten light colored foreign step in each dish. eighty five percent of global wealth you longs to be culled from rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent from its last year some with four hundred to five hundred trade per second per second and bitcoin rose to forty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need
11:47 am
to remember a one to one business shows you can't afford to miss the one and only boom bust. when a loved one is murdered it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer and it's meaningless in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict just found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no way to hadn't been that we were even many of the times families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
11:48 am
