1:31 pm
a potential favorite for many of the remainders critics have seen this and understood it to be as a very potentially extremely divisive stuff step to take leading to outrage anger bigger crisis and deadlock if you imagine a second referendum what kind of even bigger mess that could potentially have brought so it seems like the house has said their voice their opinion on this issue so of the possibility of the second row of a second referendum has been taken off the table for now as we speak they're voting on a second amendment this one this is to send article fifty two june thirtieth to find out what's being described as another way in for in peace to take back control of the process to enable to them to find majority support. simply put for m.p.'s to be able to figure out what it is that the. would be able
1:32 pm
to have a unified approach to so that is what they're voting now there's two more amendments to go and then the big mo said on whether or not to extend our the proximity of that line so we'll be watching all of that closely. thank you pretty much goes right up today with the situation in london and just to remind everybody watching we will be going back to and fro to westminster to show you the scene there this is how it looks right now john bercow the speaker. trying to bring a few unruly m.p.'s ale there's a lot of disputed opinions going on and looks like they're heading out for another another vote who said at least for a moment it will be voted on this evening as well as a major motion of to reason maze we will be keeping a ride across all the developments on the results as they come in. the breaks it

killed john. ok a secular some of the day's other news in the fight against islamic states last remaining pockets of resistance in syria is entering its final moments that's according to kurds they've launched a massive military offensive just a few days ago with the help of u.s. air cover. well throughout the bloody conflict in the country millions of syrians have been forced to flee their homes many ended up in refugee camps inside and outside of
1:34 pm
syria but the conditions there are dire many of them in desperate need of basic things like food water medicine we discussed the situation on the ground with paula fitzgerald a representative of the international federation of the red cross in syria. well the situation is really very serious and i think the can't hold it's probably the highest focus at the moment sees thousands of people arriving every day and the infrastructure is not there to support what i do you know it's a whole can yesterday had seventy two thousand people and. people are continuing to riot in the numbers around sixty thousand so big numbers but most of this displaced people in syria i'm not living in kent situations a living from place to christ in the community you know in lebanon where a quarter of the population met now syrian. refugees similar numbers.
1:35 pm
to the. three million refugees say so it's an incredible pressure on infrastructure in the conversations we're having here and hearing over these few days in brussels is very much around please join. the start stop your support for us because the syrian people inside the host nation. continued in need so says i think you'll need to study to start where. they need basic services to be able to really water health sanitation education and of course a lot of the woods people need to be able to work and make a living so and to repair their home center to put their lives back on track. the editor of a leading in northern irish current affairs blog believes the principle that security forces can't be investigated has been breached. at the end of the day
1:36 pm
there's a lot of disappointment because only one of those soldiers will fears prosecution i think it's a victory in a sense for the store system of the dairy families my own personal view is that none of these people whether they be victims of the british security forces the provisional ira or the various loyalist organizations none of these victims volunteered to be victims and all of them should be held in some kind of equal esteem the principle has been breached that no security force members are to be investigated and i think that is a moral victory for the families. it's scandalous erupted in poland after it came to light an anti semitic publication was on sale inside the parliament building the latest edition features a guide on how to recognise it and has been roundly condemned as a disgrace it's a disgrace that's a rag with such headlines can be sold inside the parliament i hope we will realise
1:37 pm
how racist publications managed to get away with this freedom of speech is no defense weekly is called only poland it's one of twelve publications run by the anti semitic politician and former and paid less shit bubel only poland's been on sale nationwide for more than two decades following the scandal is now being withdrawn from parliament. relations between poland and israel have become more tense in recent months and february israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu enraged warsaw by saying polls collaborated with the nazis during the holocaust things weren't helped by the israeli foreign minister who said quote polls suckle anti semitism with their mother's milk poll and reacted by pulling out of a central european summit in jerusalem which was then canceled in turn poland has seen large nationalist marches on the country's independence day attended by various far rights groups as event was attended by more than two hundred thousand people including the country's president. dr efraim zuroff who's the director for
1:38 pm
eastern europe at the simon wiesenthal center believes that the vast majority of people in poland don't hold such anti jewish views. judging from the nature of this publication i think this is the kind of things that they if they publish i mean obviously it's as if they're afraid that jews are infiltrating poland those jews are undermining poland and you won't be able to recognize them you need their help to be able to recognize a jew i mean it's ludicrous i think that most people in poland do not subscribe to such ridiculous lies about jews but unfortunately this there there are some people who do i mean this is a remnant of a vestige of the deep bantay seventy's and that existed in poland during the into war period how could such a. publication be published in poland in general that to mention certainly in that you know to be sold available for sale in the polish problem that it's quite
1:39 pm
outrageous i would say. staying with our team all prigs it updates coming your way after the short break. exists is a stick from the water bottle found in the stomach of a fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers they're the bad ones they're the litter box they're trying to sway industry should be points for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. on since last. june sixth. and mainly that's seen. their plastic for sixty costly on my end on a tank when you found that special projects funding. was already on the line you guessed that is the end of it for the city but for now the mountains of waste only
1:40 pm
grow higher. but the thing the numbers means they've met us is over one billion dollars. more than ten white collar crimes happened today. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be rich he would be percent world market thirty percent some would one hundred five hundred three first second first second and fifth when he rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business you know the mid one and only boom.
1:41 pm
the it. was. the. state mine pompei i was a q several energy exporting nations including the share of posing a threat to liberty and freedom was one of a number of key points majoring speech at an energy comforts in texas donna from posts. the us is house of the closet finally an official confirmation that it weaponized oil and gas and its foreign policy doctrine we need to continue to build
1:42 pm
our energy security in the ways i've described we need to roll up our sleeves and compete by facilitating investment all across the world and encouraging partners to buy from us and by punishing the bad. actors but hold up what's with the parts about bad acts as well don't you forget america is exceptional it's like no other country in the world really you so when they do it it is a canny tactic but when somebody else does it's a felony some nations are using their energy or malign amps and not to promote prosperity in the way we do here in the west. they don't have the values of freedom and liberty of the rule of law that we do and they're using their energy to destroy ours it's all the usual suspect in this being go of baddies russia is naturally there as it stands accused of plotting to turn poor old europe into a bunch of gas junkies by building a pipeline we don't want our european allies hooked on russian gas to the north as
1:43 pm
you to project none of the countries implicated in the project see a problem with it if we received russian gas during the cold war not only in the d.d.r. where i live but also in west germany but i don't see why the times and situation today should be so much more us now we can no longer say that russia remains a partner but uncle sam knows best russia also apparently invaded ukraine to pillage its energy stock and we all know the story in russia that invaded ukraine to gain access to all and gas reserves so let me get this straight russia world's number one in proven gas reserves with over fifty thousand billion cubic meters to show for it wanted some of ukraine's three hundred billion and when it comes to the black gold the mighty energy empires of denmark and it's really more oil rich than ukraine could it be that someone spends so much time in iraq
1:44 pm
that now sees the fingerprints of its own plays everywhere now of syrian leader bashar assad also goes on to impose nor to list well this time the syrian president is guilty of wanting to explore some of syrian oil reserves which are well in syria and it is cuba of course taking advantage of venezuela by enjoying its oil not the us that outright seized all assets over venezuelan petroleum company and wired them to an account inaccessible to president maduro and remember us is special in every way so when they earn a buck in energy trade that's a force for good don't mix it up but truth is here's my point. we're not just exporting american energy we're exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners so trumps well marketed america first policy may need a little clarification it's not about america solving its problems by itself it's
1:45 pm
about america trying to solve its problems at everyone else's expense pompei out seems to believe that whatever the u.s. does is right and moral and whatever russia china or iran do is this is there really wrong and immoral but you have to remember that the foreign policy team that trumpets put together this is really an amazingly inept team they are very bad at what they're doing no one is persuaded by its arguments russia's customers enter into the relationship voluntarily no one is corrupting anybody as they supposedly free trade free market the europeans are appalled by decision to pull out of the nuclear accord with iran they are determined to go ahead with the nord stream to pipeline which the u.s. opposes the no reason not to pipe in or gas from nearby russia rather than shipping
1:46 pm
it from the united states you know thousands of miles away it makes no sense at all unless you're a u.s. gas company. and there's a strike by u.s. led forces reportedly killed allied afghan soldiers that are contradictory reports as to the exact number killed kabul based journalist. we have information from an afghan senator who actually happens to be from that village and some other afghan officials who said that the sense in and took place when a group of american soldiers as well as an afghan special forces unit were on their way for an operation and they tried to use flashlights trying to see who was there knowing the afghan national army position there when there was a gunfight between both sides for several hours inside a residential area then where strike was called then the strikes were conducted
1:47 pm
after afghan and u.s. forces came on defective small arms and rocket propelled grenade fire and they requested air support in self defense the afghan and u.s. partnered forces try to these collate this situation but in the fog of war they continue to be fired upon now that is a huge blow for the afghan national security forces at a time when there really badly wounded they are fighting across the country day and night and they're really tired because this was a very busy went or time for them they are fighting now that the spring offensive is on the on the doorsteps. this sort of an incident really is a huge blow and we are still waiting for the ministry of defense who has said that they will be investigating this but acknowledging that the incident took place because of lack of coordination it's not the first time an incident like this has
1:48 pm
taken place so indeed a very difficult year ahead for the afghan national security forces especially in the absence of a comprehensive cease fire between the afghan government in the taliban. students in new york's sarah lawrence college demanding it cut funding for one of its professors after the conservative academic called for more right leaning views on campus the protest is growing students also calling for the college to address quote injustices imposed on people of color. we're wired one way. or the politics professor targeted by the protesters abrams wrote an article in the new york times in which he called for greater ideological diversity in colleges and
1:49 pm

1:50 pm
as we've seen for a tenured member of the faculty i think college should be a place where you would change ideas you you do big issues you have speakers who are conservative speakers who are liberal you go see you debate you don't shut down speakers because oh he's a conservative i don't want them on campus. u.s. lawmakers there are tough stance on russia passing for new bills condemning vladimir putin's leadership on the scale of mopin explains. according to some members of the u.s. congress tromp is just not hard enough on russia new legislation is required the u.s. house of representatives just passed four bills pacifically targeting russia they are mandating that no federal agency actually recognize crimea as being part of russia furthermore they are demanding that the intelligence agency dig into
1:51 pm

1:52 pm
relationships with those operating in crimea will not be tolerated and as subjects to u.s. and e.u. sanctions authorizing trump has escalated the u.s. and nato military presence in poland right on russia's doorstep and trump has presided over naval maneuvers in the black sea right near russia's sensitive military base. trump has authorized the sale of lethal weapons to the anti russian government based here furthermore he directly attacked the syrian arab republic his predecessor would do neither of these things but some say it is just not far enough the rhetoric continues that somehow he's putin's puppet well it doesn't really matter what he does he could be totally hard on russia he could be harder than obama or anybody else will russia do want to know because it's all part of a greater playing to get out of office as all is about is really kind of a no win situation in his case the narrative is
1:53 pm
a narrative and you're going to push it no matter way it's almost like trump is being backed into a corner he has to escalate hostilities in order to disprove the constant allegations. r.t. new york. hundreds of protesters gathered in yemen's capital to denounce the killing of more than twenty women and children and strikes an attack in which thirty others were also injured a strong supporter of the northern province of java earlier this week hundreds of civilians to be trapped unable to flee to safety or obtain food medical treatment strikes have reportedly risen significantly in recent months from thirty eight hundred january to fifty one in february demonstrators have accused the international community of ignoring the situation. yemen suffering one of the worst humanitarian crises in history eighty percent of the population depends on humanitarian assistance in order to survive more than ten million yemenis are on the brink of starvation seven million among the rest. of the u.s.
1:54 pm
senate recently approved a resolution requiring the end of american support for the saudi led coalition in yemen a statement by the trumpet ministration explained why the president is expected to veto the bill the joint resolution would harm bilateral relationships in the region negatively affect our ability to prevent the spread of violent extremist organizations such as al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula and isis in yemen and establish bad precedent for future legislation by defining hostilities to include defense cooperation such as aerial refueling for purposes of this legislation. policy director just foreign policy says congressional pressure because the make a difference. first of all because the war is unconstitutional. the war is unconstitutional because the job of congress not the president sideway the us use force. carter says never authorize this war star under the obama
1:55 pm
administration march twenty fifth or years ago was unconstitutional and it's unconstitutional not so is. the responsibility of congress to say that the war should stop it's the worst humanitarian crisis in the world and that's a direct result of the war the saudi blockade in the deliberate saudi attacks on so similar mental structure while true that we don't know what trump is going to do we do know their congress already puts pressure on the administration. has threatened to veto he said he is but that doesn't mean that he's going to be there oh ok you can take very short break of dates coming your way in around five minutes time.
