4:03 am
of a criminal conspiracy journalistic activities that are not just lawful but essential to press freedom now much of the indictment focuses on and conspiring with chelsea manning however it's this bit that has everyone talking. he was part of the conspiracy that assigns a man into commercials to conceal men and as the source of the disclosure of classified records to weaken leaks including by removing the user names from the disclosed information and delete in chat logs between man and the songe so trying to protect the identities of anonymous linkers and whistleblowers is now considered to be illegal well if that's the case american mainstream media should be in huge trouble intelligence sources tell and b.c. news there is no doubt the russians are trying to influence the presidential election a source tells n.b.c. news law enforcement and democratic sources telling c.n.n. that in a five sources two sources with links to the counter intelligence community according

to anonymous washington post source take this article from the washington post. the washington post has obtained transcripts of two conversations president trump had with foreign leaders one with mexican president enrique pena nieto i don't know that with australian prime minister malcolm turnbull the transcripts were prepared by the white house but have not been released the post is publishing reproductions rather than original documents in order to protect sources so time to bring in the department of justice it's a criminal conspiracy to cover up a leaker right or take this one this one turned out to not actually be true it looks like somebody in the government is actually spreading disinformation who could that be well c.n.n. is protecting its source we have a not anonymous sources we protect that for real reasons so the information that is important to the public through can get out of hand and sends donald trump has taken office hollywood has decided to celebrate the who wrote press the challenge
4:05 am
the nixon administration back during the vietnam war. do you have the papers. at the time says seven thousand pages detailing how the white house has been lying about the vietnam war for thirty years. i'm talking about exposing years of government secrets is that legal what is it you think we do here for a living so if you follow the logic of the indictment tom hanks' character is not a heroic journalist at all in fact he's a criminal and that points to another big question a number of voices have spoken up and said that it's ok to persecute and punish julian assange because quote he is not a real journalist but here's the thing the first amendment protects everyone whether you're labeled as a real journalist or not this is how the courts have explained it in the past as the supreme court has accurately warned a first amendment distinction between the institutional press on the speakers is
4:06 am
unworkable the ninth circuit really believe that the world has changed and that everybody should be entitled to personal interactions so i do that of course julian assange to. fact that he's hiding. he's protecting his source that's what journalists do he's a publisher. leaks is an organization that publishes truth for classified information that's in the public interest and under that definition he's definitely a journalist so at this point the u.s. department of justice is telling us that julian assange may have done a bad thing by trying to hack in that top secret government files well nobody disputes that but the bigger issue may be what he actually was able to reveal wiki leaks made public a lot of information that angered powerful people and it seems that now they want him to pay kaleb up and r.t. new york meantime tucson's has been on a boat the european parliament with a journalistic award he's been given the e.u. glitzier award for journalists whistleblowers and defenders of the right to
4:07 am
information nobel peace prize laureate moderate mcguire accepted on his behalf the serve the lord. goes to show you have no sons or thank you. so a bit more about this award is received it was established last year by a group of leftwing members of the european parliament on as those who've been persecuted or intimidated for uncovering the truth and exposing it to the public as during the sun has come in behind bars he will be able to turn the ceremony of course who we saw accepting the award for him when standing over to him personally though. i just think it's very important that we acknowledge julian assange for the create sacrifice that he has made for a saw one must ask the question why didn't this happen before i
4:08 am
nominated this year for the nobel peace prize for his work for pace and trying to end war and suffering of the people when he published true recchi lake's he knew he would be a wanted man and he was governor. i think we have to acknowledge julian assange and thank him and i want to do that personally for all he has done for us i was deeply shocked that julian assange was arrested from the actor dorian amber say so treated so badly julian assange is his human rights and he should be free. and under no circumstances sent to america for a jury trial because if that happens we all become her and live in a very dark orange for our children well he certainly polarizes opinion speaking out he's going underground show former pink floyd from roger waters chipped in to

criticizing we are not opposing a sound is actually the shit. what they're trying to do trump and the rest of them and to raise them a is they're trying to frighten would be truly innocent is who may provide this incredibly important service for the rest of us in society in the future they're trying to scare them off so they won't do it they are killing as sanch deceived when it came out of the embassy he's been living he hasn't seen hardly seeing daylight for six years having committed no crime just because donald trump the commander in chief wants him dead he may very well end up dead that is why the british people he called them as he was taken by those special branch offices into that van and driven away he called upon the

people of great britain to resist i heard him i watched on the t.v. resist them and they should there should be a general strike in england to prevent him being extradited. french made weapons may have been used during the saudi led coalition's incursion into yemen that's according to leaks said to be from french intelligence they were made public by investigative website disclosed which also says the weapons may have been used against civilians and for other war crimes it demonstrates that hundreds of thousands of civilians live under the threat of these arms and provides information that allows us to demonstrate that some of these weapons may have been used to commit war crimes the french government is today where of the risk of this in light of the revelation to nominate internationals called on france to suspend arms sales to saudi arabia president across government has defended those cells
4:11 am
along the way and downplayed their role in the conflict charlotta been ski picks up the story. france has long been criticized for supplying weapons to saudi arabia human rights charity said time and time again told the government that those weapons are being used to bomb schools hospitals and other civilian targets exacerbating the crisis in yemen a war that's left thousands dead and pushed millions to the brink of starvation the u.n. has even called what's happening in yemen the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
4:12 am
but france has always hit back saying the weapons that it sells to saudi arabia only used offensively to defer attacks by the p.c.'s i'm not aware that french weapons have been used directly in yemen except that now appears to be contradicted by a classified note by the french military intelligence service uncovered following an investigation by a media outlet called disclose it was feels french weapons sold to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates are being used in the war in yemen but one pressed again in light of this new evidence the government's once again offered denials to our knowledge the french weapons available to the members of the coalition are mostly in a defensive position outside yemeni territory or on call issued rights of way but not on the front line and we are not aware of any civilian casualties resulting from
4:13 am
their use in the yemeni theater france is not among the lead. arms suppliers of countries in gauged in yemen but that's hard to swallow given that this classified note was apparently provided to the french government in october twenty eighth jean it showed forty eight seas our artillery guns were being used along the saudi yemen border that tanks sold to u.a.e. are in action as to fight it jets while missile guiding technology may have been deployed.
4:14 am
in. france's military agency note actually goes even further to frank ships are serving in the blockade of yemeni ports directly leading to food and medical shortages that means that women and children can't access the food that they need nor medicines if they've been attacked now last year president mccone dismissed pressure to halt arms sales to riyadh after it was implicated in the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi. st it's pure demagoguery to say stop selling weapons they have nothing to do with mr has to not confuse these things but it is interesting to hear before knowing the facts say we will not sell more weapons already so more than france through the joint ventures they have on sales to saudi all big business for france between two thousand and eight and two thousand and seventeen it was the second biggest
4:15 am
purchaser of french elam's with deals totaling more than eleven. billion euros meanwhile mark owen has talked about the ongoing crisis in yemen his country even hosted a humanitarian court for us to discuss the issue but for many so far it's been all talk and little action as pockets continue to be lined or why the people of yemen face one of the world's most desperate plight. so it's even ski r.t. paris well we talked to the co-founder of the disclose investigative website which published those documents jeffrey have all seen told us that from supports the saudi led bombing campaign for commercial reasons. the french contracts now with saudi arabia and the united arab emirates generally for weapons made names arms is sold to these countries and france keeps them operational so it's not just
4:16 am
a question of arms sales to these countries but it can stop keeping these weapons operational in the yemeni conflict front supports the coalition through arms sales and disclose today that its defense support is to fight terrorism wherever french weapons are county not used in yemen against al qaida but against yemenis themselves namely to hooty parts so clearly this is not a question of fighting terrorism why is the french government continuing to support the coalition it is certainly linked to economic interests these contracts bring in huge amounts of money to france which is the world's number three or four arms seller cannot focus on london at london's road for the last two days now the environmental activists are threatening the rail and chub networks to get the climate change message across just one of the stories we've got lined up after this break.
4:17 am
what politicians do. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. somehow i want to be. right. it's like i'm up for freedom or people. i'm interested in the why. should.
4:18 am
i get rid of all of this is all it's international live from moscow so environmental group extinction rebellion has vowed to disrupt london rail and chub lines not only three hundred activists were arrested after a series of protests bought traffic chaos in the british capital. was. thousands of taking part in coordinated sit down protests. it's in the city since monday demanding action over climate change some vented their anger on the london h.q. of oil giant shell's much of windows and spraying graffiti on the walls is one of the protesters had to say direct. i want my grandchildren know what everybody's
4:19 am
grandchildren to be able to grow up to safely we are demanding that the government tell the truth. and they must do that because people don't know what they're doing is criminal all the governments across the world are part of this and they are letting us down i plan it die on ecosystems die and we all have to stop this government angle three and corporations here demonstrations are part of a global campaign an organized by the british climate group extinction rebellion which was formed last year the movement of man's governments reduce carbon emissions to zero by twenty twenty five and the program should be monitored by a public group further to achieve its goals extinction rebellion promotes mass civil disobedience and is already staged rallies in more than thirty countries and show you next what happened monday in berlin. mothers are the reason.
4:20 am
we have demonstrations long enough we have the right and must now use the means of civil disobedience to stem to rebel. was a massive issue people either side of the fence over how bad it is the issue of climate change has placed activist and teacher tim jones and andre walker a political commentator and new york observer columnist in opposing corners for a start. the point that we're raising which is about the potential collapse of society and really seriously the end of the human race is now a real possibility so some disruption to a city compared to a collapse of a society that comparison is what we have to think about what these people believe that just because they think they're rights that anything that they do is morally justified that is an extremely dangerous and extremely on democratic positions and it's grossly unfair we are making
4:21 am
a point by make by not harming anybody at all no life is harmed or threatened anything we do and we sometimes we do commit criminal damage and we do that to draw attention because nobody is listening to the terrifying severity of the of the evidence the relevance of what we're talking about if your house is on fire and you're asleep i would kick your door and come and try and save you so if you know it and then if you to complain about the criminal damage that i caused by kicking in your door to come and save you then that would be a little bit absurd to claim that smashing up the shell building is akin to saving people in a fire is absolutely offensive the truth is you are justified harassment you are justified bullying you are justified criminal climates rebellion the organization have said that they will not stop the protest all until carbon emissions go to zero within six years that means an end to vehicle transport an end to aviation and end to electricity and to this child blue plate a return to the stone age the idea that people do not believe in manmade global

4:23 am
massive underestimate especially if you look at things like the the decline of arctic ice they massively underestimate what was happened i'm going to bet you if you're dead as a result of climate change by sixty five. then i will pay fuel for you give me it's not if you're still alive when you claim your pension when you'll still if you'll still live long enough to claim your pension then you've got to give me the in top add to it if you also come for that that you're going to be dead by retirement age will you take that back look at your own. from scams the terms of the devastating fire of the world or cathedral vigils have been held in perth. hundreds of firefighters battled those flames for nearly twelve hours on monday evening but spire most of the roof was lost many precious auto thought was saved from that a story building by human chain of people what really quickly the restoration what
