a state of emergency it comes after call for u.s. intervention. to date the solution. and an ethiopian airlines plane with one hundred fifty seven people on board minutes after taking off from addis ababa there are no survivors. who are watching from lima ohio an arbor michigan or the land of the stately pine this is our to international and weekly and we're glad to have you with. our u.s. backed fighters in syria have resumed their assault against the last the area held by islamic state terrorists fighting is now raging in near the iraqi border the final showdown with eisele was delayed to allow families to flee the area
a spokesperson for the kurdish led syrian democratic forces says the battle is almost over the. troops began an offensive at six pm local time and planes targeted the terrorists' weapons depos there is fierce fighting on the outskirts of the camp forces and i'm ready to finish what is left of eisel own village of bugaboos has been a focal point of the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now despite donald trump repeatedly declaring victory over eisel america's top general says otherwise artie's trying to come and. have a look at but who's right there near the border with iraq we didn't really hear about it in the course of syria's civil war misery now's the time it is really being called the last remaining eyelet of territory. indeed we've seen crowds of escaping civilians and even jihad is who did choose to
surrender the current say they want to make sure all innocent people make it out of the goos before the guns go off just a short while ago though donald trump was bragging about his army and allies crushing islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however we've kept hearing absolutely different takes from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground the head of u.s. central command is sure i still hasn't surrendered he's confident it's not been defeat. instead the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and wait for the right time to make a comeback reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent
extremism is far from over we have won against isis now we've won and at least for now president trumps prout announcement that the american soldiers were pulling out makes less and less sense the pullout would have definitely scored mr trump some valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this but google's thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis see a resurgence you know they're running out we'll come back if we have to anyway whatever happens next depends on what ignites and this small but vital strip of land known as booze well as a general votel testified in congress recently and he said. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it is not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have formed we believe that
forms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date from the later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's a hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces you see advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis is far. over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. many of those who escaped the fighting in bogus have been put into a refugee camp there they are facing new threats with shortages of food and
medicine. i love seeking jihad for god because we are all muslims and we have verses about jihad and the more about the killing snowshoeing and torture. are repentant and have left islamic state but i just heard of it had the right approach. the conditionals definitely diet into account the problem is nobody was expecting these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped.
the political divide in venezuela is deepening with rival crowds filling the streets of caracas throughout the weekend opposition leader addressed his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the majority government thank you say the solution is intervention thank. me crush it. demanding a trade to fabricated this whole show claiming the military would join the there is only one answer yes to loyalty and no to be true. is a clone. and a criminal after a very tense week opposition supporters are back on the streets to protest against
the government of nikko last month europe they called was may but one why go on monday after returning an international tour to heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest ones of penicillin history at the moment the whole capital is powerless but at the foot of the tongue i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water new food the government should step down there you heard it all but i am here to defend the democratic choice of our people when you voted for nicolas maduro as our president and of the constitution he is the only president unlike one why don't you chose and proclaim to yourself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. who declared himself interim leader in january says he will ask of a nationwide blackout across because calls the outage an act of sabotage by the united states but the opposition says the moderate government is to blame some though had very different ideas about what caused it u.s.
senator marco rubio is staunch advocate of removing the doro tweeted that the cause of the power outage was a transformer explosion at a german but as it turns out there is no such thing in venezuela. today another transformer explosion at the german dam in believe a state coast another massive blackout sen marco rubio an important transformer exploded in believer and that's in parts again collapse the venezuelan elect is again man down i'm one of the journalists who publish the information. washington insists that nicolas maduro is no longer the leader of venezuela the u.s. state department went so far as to berate journalists who fail to accept that view we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one guy joe as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president.
neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize one by doe as interim president of venezuela you get this for your complaining because that letter is the but you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well that's all it's like a complaint to me in that sense can we he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as you know president fifty countries is not even close. is the time to act in support of democracy and that news coverage of the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage
more functional but we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator the trump administration introduced a new measures against venezuela this week blacklisting officials and threatening sanctions against countries that support nicolas maduro but i have comments now on the sanctions and how they fit into washington optional literally bound by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument you're making no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid
to use the phrase munroe doctrine. it's an archaic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and they are and a bill that legitimizes us meddling there terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and say
no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are woold away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us and work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good and now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt
to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license. to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically but
continents oh you've got to be special whole right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand nine hundred eighty four with arbenz or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. and if you know korean airlines plane has crashed killing all one
hundred fifty seven people on board it was heading from d.c. to nairobi the victims include thirty five foreign nationals and nineteen staff from organizations linked to the united nations donald quarter earlier discussed the tragedy with my colleague unit o'neill. ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o. has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors in the majority being from kenya canada and the e.u. now this was one of ethiopian airlines regularly scheduled flights although the plane crashed only six minutes after takeoff it took emergence reports were saying that it only crashed about fifty kilometers south of the takeoff zone at the airport one witness even told the b.b.c. that the result of this delay was because the fire was so strong that people were unable to approach the plane on the crash site the office of the ethiopian prime minister already reacted to this on twitter they said that they give their
condolences to the families of those who lost their lives on this plane the big question is of course the causes what happened to it do we have any kind of going to be investigation of course but but early stages of why this happened yet well that's another surprising detail hours later and we still have no details available as to what caused this crash in the first place it's one of the newest model so that's another aspect we have to bring in here it's actually called the boeing seven thirty seven max and it's a new addition to the theo be in fleet only from back in july of last year and a lot of people are drawing parallels to the plane crash that occurred last year in indonesia with lion airs model of the same plane that boeing says the boeing seven thirty seven max and just to give you a couple details about that it was a very similar situation the plane crashed in indonesia only several minutes after taking off and over one hundred. passengers were killed now boeing also reacted to
that and to this situation back then last year boeing issued a warning year later about this model of aircraft saying that the seven thirty seven max might have a tendency to do a nosedive against the will of the pilot of the plane and boeing airplanes actually also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. more than six thousand activists gathered in central moscow here on sunday demanding the protection of internet freedoms that's after lawmakers gave their initial approval to a bill granting the authorities greater control over which sites are acceptable but he didn't question over reports. that reported on this rally here and central moscow people who gathered found the freedom of internet and russia but ironically r.t. wasn't allowed to look at this organizers of this event told us that we wanted to
know what's happening back there by standing here i can only tell you that i see concerts people in many mostly young people we saw here. that flocks they were holding different slogans all damning the rest the bill that was proposed by russian officials now the event organized by a group of activists was earlier approved by moscow city hall. there's something completely different a dolled up adolph hitler wearing lipstick and long eyelashes has been spotted in madrid and barcelona barcelona on the side of a bus it is part of a campaign by conservative catholics who are unhappy about spanish laws on gender of violence which they claim discriminate against men on the bus tour and several other spanish cities in the run up to international women's day on friday campaign was organized under the hash tag stop feminine seize which. is how the organizers refer to certain types of feminists its spokesman explained why. the
gender laws are really very. very very bad laws because lee discriminate men from women in the penalty of the pinnacle discriminate also in the presentation of innocence it's breakin principle of equality that this in our constitution what we're asking is for already that this what supposedly prime minister are asking for but in fact are not they're not asking for equality but they are asking for super in the system in a giant way. the campaign is seeking of the repeal of a two thousand and four law on gender violence under which special courts and rehabilitation centers were created to protect women at risk people on twitter have bitten back coming up with a few of their own alternative bus slogans accusing the campaign of being behind the times body confidence advocate joanne be more alice thinks of the hitler bus
has failed to get its point across. has me think it's quite hard to take a group an organization seriously when they use. an or many people that it's quite hard to just read the speech and understand what the organizations phanatic he the press and the basics campaigns what they're trying to do i don't need that the current effect is a bit of an insult to specially because of what he was about and what he thought about women and and trying to do and i do agree that something needs to be done and it happened both ways so maybe he's not the right hasn't again do you think it might be insulting to men directly. a south african lawmaker has stirred up racial tensions by saying true freedom will only come when the white population is subservient to the black i don't want blacks to work for whites i
want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must people to be our domestic workers julius malema is the leader of the economic freedom fighters a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years malema has stirred a national debate with his views on race and class he has twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people and he was expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve for sowing division within the organization. the apartheid policy in south africa and more than two decades ago the country is still struggling with division why people make up nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government our guests give us their views on the dispute. the general ideology
of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder that one to obliterate one to completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and uplifting and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them and hire in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact. black majority
government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is just what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the land even these politicians controlled by money who has money why it's when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why people are somehow deny a list of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. the yellow vest movement took to the streets of paris again on saturday and is continuing stand against the french government.

after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next. different clubs on one hand it is logical to go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising. you. i'm going to talk about football not for you or else you just think i was going to do it. by the way what is it that slide here. during the great depression which you must remember that it was most my family were working class and it wasn't. it was bit much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation that things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america where shape by the
turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack soloed. engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to no on. one set of rules for the rich opposite. that's what happens when you put her into the. room sector of wilf which rule is dedicated to increasing virtue of just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. countries are very reluctant to recognize the fact that that is why my formulae and also to me that they were perhaps straw get. condemning them or siding against and
so quickly in the use of the war sell their entire families and undermine the reconstruction process by the prolongation of states and i think that was in countries worldwide as intuition where serious reagan started but in a way in which he started by a third power not russia iran not by the west and by the decency. of. countries gone into a nihilistic feed that's fine thanks. to hit the road and get the child to the plane what makes america take the show it's the genius. american hero this is it we point around which hollywood is going to say we're starting last with is
