the julian assange charged in the us with conspiracy to hack government computers the issue of his alleged links to russia once again being raised in washington. french police used tear gas against yellow vests protesters in the twenty second consecutive weekend of demonstrations against the government. and the german justice minister roundly criticised after giving an interview to a german sister channel in which she mentions close ties between the in the moscow . and we maintain close ties with russia russia was and always will be our partner.
this is r.t. international great to have you with us. following his dramatic arrest wiki leaks front man julian assange she's facing a charge of conspiracy to hack a u.s. government computer but it appears that washington has another axe to grind judging by the vice president's words on friday. when he was the cia cia director he called weekly leaks state house intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia we strongly agree with for the justice department is now seeking extradition. may just be in a slip of the tongue the scope of the songs hasn't been charged with anything russia related but his alleged links to the kremlin have been on the minds of the media and political chase for quite some time. looks at whether alleged collusion might still become part of the case against the wiki leak. it did say it years ago
a son that the united states wanted him that's why he was in the ecuadorian embassy and he was right america is seeking extradition and if you watch enough t.v. you surely know why his russian connections can we address the question at hand and that is whether or not you can say definitively that russia had no part in this. was trying to sabotage the twenty six thousand election and have these facts in front of them saw assad as an agent agent or at least a provocateur or a collaborator with the russian government tonight there is growing evidence that russia is using wiki leaks as a delivery vehicle for hacked e-mails and other information it was everywhere on every pundit slips for years assad's we can leaks putin russia meddling echoed and echoed by everyone important enough to be on camera like us need is
it's time to call out wiki leaks for what it really is a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia they've acted in concert with the russians to interfere on our elections to help you pack into what took kept information from the russians and at least in a way to disrupt our campaigns and twenty sixteen i don't think that's that's not right to legal and i hope mr as much as possible gestures should come to cuba and so forth is for all. russian meddling in what you do by their word he's a covert k.g.b. asset on the secret mission to topple the united states that is if you watch enough t.v. if you don't if you actually read the indictment against in the charges not to mention of russia not to mention of elections of meddling e-mails or grand plots to topple the united states his crime allegedly was that he worked with chelsea. manning to
obtain classified documents that showed us human rights abuses in iraq and afghanistan the us government house to. state all the charges they tend to charge mr socks with. extraditions. the field mr sargent's us that lands on us on a power point united states government or their charters just consider this if the us had any of it anything tying as signs to russia or meddling or conspiracy do you think they would have shown it to mentioned it this is it this is the unique charge he faces and because of how extradition works they can't add any more charges if they get him. the extradition work. needs to go
at that stage but except charge aside for example. the extradition court case or not extradite somebody to wes if the charges that are probably going to. not exist there's no charge. so the extradition court makes very clear we're only going to extradite on those charges are sent to us and. we just i guess directs your sosh. states or iraq journeys are on our sinks six pounds six are. going by what lawyers and experts are saying the u.s. doesn't have much of a case and that ass and is found guilty it sets a nasty precedent where journalists can be jailed for posting classified material no matter how vital like the manning files.
this remarkable as it may be the u.s. is now saying that exposing us human rights abuses wanted murder committed by the us military exposing that is more serious than the abuses and murder themselves chilled for many bradley manning was freed by a bomb up but judging by the toxicity on t.v. in washington as shouldn't be too hopeful the. you never know trump is trump wiki leaks i love wiki leaks. and those they place forcibly
removed julian assange from the ecuadorian embassy in london and came back to quito and stripped him of his ecuadorian citizenship under the asylum which was granted my seven years prior i could also say the solids violated the terms of his assault of a new persuasive independent journalist and close friends were killed in a structure. so that the we can exchange that can. be a. very robust and strong person physically quite large and mentally but he has been under the most enormous strain i mean physically had lost a lot of weight mentally he was still the same julian of course but you could see that he's a man who had suffered he owed on the weekends for example the embassy used to close down and you could see that he didn't like being alone rattling around the place he hasn't been outside the door as we're in the last yeah under the regime of merino we're monitoring him inside the embassy to an extraordinary degree there were two cameras in every room except a lot of trees even the kitchen had one also he was gagged he was well speaking
german and the other thing is his visitation rights with the tailors for it was quite difficult to see him julian has expected to be thrown out of the embassy since before christmas he was just waiting for it to happen but i didn't think he expected to be dragged out in this way the way it happened was to patrol him to help portray him as a fugitive rather than allowing him to walk out himself with dignity people consider much more of a threat than you really is you know the district judge and the magistrate court that he went into office straight out to being taken by the police described him as a narcissist i mean the judge should make him once in the courtroom a bad day i mean that's a savage thing to say about somebody talk about city stuff about him you know apparently. to be unclean or something like that i mean it's extraordinary how janice revell just struck me so it was really important. and really important to the future of journalism. as our guest points out media speculation is rife
surrounding a sergeant losing the welfare of his cat however wiki leaks decided to dispel any rumors and confirm that the cat is safe and sound weekly's posted a video of the feline watching is only being drank from the embassy it turns out the cat was rescued by a songes lawyer in mid october that followed threats to remove it or the ecuadorian government gave mr size a set of house rules which specified that he risked losing his combine in a lawsuit or proper care of. french police have fired tear gas and yellow vests protesters who were throwing rocks and bottles on the first weekend following a controversial anti riot law coming into force new rules ban demonstrators from hiding their faces. i.
clashes have erupted in paris where police used tear gas against the protesters twenty seven people were detained more than thirty thousand protested across the country with around five thousand of those in the capital. rally turned violent incidents in news were officers moved in after protesters reportedly tried to build barricades a number of demonstrators were said to have been injured more than twenty were detained the twenty second consecutive weekend of anti-government rallies in france ill of us movement began in november as a rally against fuel price hikes and a call for president to resign so it's a professor of french and francophone studies at the university of nottingham paul smith thinks despite prism. kranz ratings going up he won't win back his full support. oddly enough over the last few weeks he's
a poll ratings have been going up both for him and his prime minister eight bush leaf and i think that there is a sense in the golden bonus you know whatever other politicians will get a lot over media commentators say that was actually kind of gave a framework to to the discontent he provided out late for the fall discontented all teach people to participate and in a city to massive success but particularly that is the good it is so you listen to the contributions of so disparate bringing that all together and turning that into something is going to be very difficult so paradoxically you're looking at but with news looking at the footage you know i think that he's enormously popular but the next three weeks are going to be going up and in fact all the european elections are going to be absolutely critical. in the meantime religious violence in france is on the rise with a spike in attacks against minorities but the majority of incidents in the country
target christians something much of the media seems to overlook explains. anti religious attacks are taking place on an almost daily basis in france but while some incidents seem to attract a lot of attention others are largely being ignored according to the french observer. for me so mary twenty nineteen was the worst month for churches in france and state began collecting data in two thousand and fifteen but in addition to churches other public christian symbols have also been targeted for example some across as on mountaintops public crucifixes been destroyed or vandalized and public statues of jesus and the virgin mary have been decapitated or destroyed and according to the observatory in france anti christian attacks have sharply risen since the beginning of twenty nineteen this is paris is historic seoul suit peace
last month a fire here briefly caught the attention of the media. it didn't take long for an investigation to say the attack was deliberate and cause nearly a million euros in damage but take a closer look at how it was reported by some news wires the headline reads the church briefly catches fire. it's almost a month later the story doesn't appear to have been updated suggesting that the deliberate attack on one of paris is the largest churches just wasn't backed newsworthy at the same time other anti religious attacks not only make the headlines they stay. the latest official figures from the french government to give
us a better insight into what's happening in twenty eighteen there was a sharp rise in. a number of anti sematic incidents five hundred forty one that's up seventy four percent compared with twenty seventeen the incidents were broken down showing what they were related to including murder violence and threats anti muslim acts to it at a hundred a low since twenty ten meanwhile the number of anti christian acts reached one thousand and sixty three a slight increase compared with the previous year no further detail was. what was shocking to me was the almost casual way that the ministry described it saying quote the number of anti-christian acts is stable over the year when the interior minister downplays or. seems to sideline the
acts against christians it fuels the assumption that only minority religions deserve protection unquestionably the increase in anti-semitic attacks is of serious concern but by many as minimizing the number of anti-christian incidents and providing no details the government signals in a not so subtle way that this is less important it's unclear who is carrying out these attacks or why they are taking place but there's real concern that the way that the french government and the media generally underplay them means that they could be being significantly underreported meaning the true scale is still unknown so it didn't ski r.t. paris. now the german justice minister has come under fire for giving an interview to our. we will find out what you had to say after the break.
concepts are lagging behind. thousands of protesters flooded the sudanese capital khartoum on saturday calling on the army to hand over power to a civilian government the army a toppled longtime president omar al bashir on thursday following months of public protests but now those protesters say that there remained in the streets until a civilian transitional council is formed they fear the military which is dominated by our loyalists will hand power to one of its aim however some countries have already affirmed their support for the military council saudi arabia says it's ready to provide humanitarian aid to the country that's according to saudi state media. german media and politicians have rounded on the country's
justice minister after she gave an interview to artie's german sister channel in a seven minute appearance katherina barly touched on several issues concerning europe including germany's relations with russia on the speech of all of the reports from berlin. well the german justice minister catherine of bali is found herself in hot water according to some lost on the political sea according to others it's curious to see how you can completely lose your political compass in no time well what heinous act did she commit she spoke to the media or as some would have you believe the wrong type of media this is all come about after ms bali gave an interview to r.t. german language sister service. member whose land we maintain close ties with russia russia was and always will be our partner however that doesn't mean we don't take issue with sass and things but then that's
a natural part of any relationship. nordstrom to is a private enterprise and we as a government do not interfere i also do not consider it appropriate to comment on u.s. plans in any way. europe has external and internal enemies these include all who seek to weaken at first of all of course these are the e.u. countries that want to become nation states again and stop their usual cooperation with us in order to pursue their selfish national interests heaven forfend a german politician give an interview to a russian news outlet about issues that affect both nations the minister must be out of her mind according to the german tabloid press justice minister caterina barely wants to join the european parliament for the s.p.d. and has given many interviews so far so good but why she took questions from the
kremlin propaganda portal russia today is not comprehensible to many in political circles while the c.d.u. is fighting for every euro to strengthen europe's security the s.p.d. european candidate for the rino barly gives interviews the russian state propaganda that is twenty four seven to weaken europe. because the arena barely of the european the un through body all smiling and friendly to those who want to send you are plummeting into chaos with their education freedom of the press sorry make that freedom to talk to the press as long as it's the ones that you haven't tabloids approve of. spanish primary school has banned people from reading little red riding-hood in sleeping beauty because they lack a balanced gender perspective the traditional fairy tales are among thirty percent of the books available for the age group which are below but toxic two hundred titles have been removed in all from the library table school in barcelona is the
latest such move in the catalan capital where gender commissions are currently reviewing similar cases we asked locals in barcelona for their thoughts but only if there was real that all of us were raised with and were not traumatized it once you're not to get close just change and i think to remove it it's a bit absurd so that no ball i think it's a delicate topic in so far as you can't reinterpret when these books were written it's from a historical time it's a matter of tradition one is obviously we have to do a lot of things to make society go forward but i don't know if this should be one of them. has been really with them since i was a child and i don't feel stereotyped or harmed by those books i don't think they're such a harmful thing for a key it's one that should never be conditions the way kids think the kids see women girls the other gender is a bit protected relative to men i think we have to teach them from childhood that there is no subordinate relationship between one and the other these are tales that have always existed they can be adapted can be explained i think we shouldn't be
censored you know it's part of the culture it has nothing to do with gender. and these are just our takes a look at just how far this reevaluation of classic works could go. once upon a time in a land far away you lived a girl and she was strong and independent and grew up to be superwoman like that story of course you do there's nothing little about this red riding hood of the twenty first century not like the old version banned in one of barcelona's primary schools for exposing children to falls gender perspectives matter of fact whereas spatter when you need them the wolves go to her and carry by x. had he's barely filled with the stones and tossed out to die in agony if that's not animal cruelty i don't know what is another fairy tale bound in that school look at the ugly reality of sleeping beauty.

being whitewashed by disney and if little red riding hood is a bad gender example for kids no way this tale can be under the p.g. thirteen mark and with aladin i think the deal was if you wish is not a t.v. show for movies and seven video games i mean where's the genie's union when you need it and who knows how many more evils lurk under the guise of harmless children's books. more than one hundred war crimes and counting the fantasy t.v. series game of thrones has been taken to task master list red cross the humanitarian organizations to giving a tally of all the on screen rights violations in the land of westroads.
u.s. veterans who come back from war often tell the same stories. were going after the people who were killing civilians they were not interested in the wellbeing of their own soldiers either there already is several generations of them so i just got this memo. that says. we're going to attack and destroy the government in seven countries in five years americans pay for the wars with the money of those with their lives if we were willing to go into harm's way and willing to risk being
killed for a war surely we can risk some discomfort easiness. thank you however. have the courage to act of the night this is a comedy show where americans in america covering american news are called foreign agents. thank you for joining me while the entire country focuses on trump and his book blue marie very few seem to care that our organized murder machines continue their work around the world that's the term i like to use instead of military organized human murder machine you know that has a nice ring to it just kind of rolls off the tongue got it. doesn't really tearing
sound so boring and but no military sounds like a super lame millipede you met at a party at military over there is an accountant if i hear one more capital gains tax joe i'm going to kill myself. so let's just go on with organized human murder machine ten months ago i covered how twenty one trillion dollars had gone unaccounted for at the pentagon over the past twenty years don't try to think about the number twenty one trillion because you'll pass out and hit your head on a desk ok if your salary is forty thousand dollars a year in order to earn a twenty one trillion it would take you five hundred and twenty five million years . which point you can't even enjoy the new jet ski you bought because you're a brick. again in a jar. since i last brought you that report there has been a little more coverage of it the nation magazine did an article for and did another article in just a few weeks ago mad tell you wrote about it in-depth in rolling stone then and
a few a few months ago i brought you another report about the huge number of whistleblowers who have been retaliated against at the pentagon according to the government accountability office the g.a.o. but you already know this i've covered it before so why am i bringing it up again well now the g.a.o. has come out with a new report showing the total number of whistleblower complaints over the past five years at the department of defense sorry organized human murder machine and it's nearly of thousands. oh i'm sorry pearlie the wrong it's ten thousand whistleblowers come what what i'm trying to do what oh oh oh oh oh nearly all hundred thousand come on that's just stupid is that is robbie robbie you know you got numbers did you do it by man i swear to god show me show me day show me to put up the quote from the government accountability.
