bringing traffic chaos in the. shadow of climate change protests and polarized. if your house is on fire and you were asleep i would kick your door in a car and trying to claim that smashing the shell building is akin to saving people it is absolutely the truth you are justified harassment your justified your justified. life russia sucks international just ten midday here in moscow my name is kevin i would thank you for watching on t.v. first and to ecuador's capital quito approach protesters clashed with police following the rest of the wiki leaks co-founder doing this in london last week.
5:02 am
the protesters claim president and rose sold a song to the united states runners currently in washington where he's accused the whistleblower of hosting and coordinating hackers or an embassy back in london the president revoked his on just additions ship last week that led to the arrest of the australian national university so he was convicted by u.k. court and a breaching bell and is also being charged in the u.s. with conspiracy to hockey computer a government computer faces possible extradition to the u.s. over it but civil rights groups say some of these charges a based on actions that any journalist might take next is caleb maupin reports this arrest is rape fear is the way to the press. what message does it send to the world that's the concern shared by the american civil liberties union the very body set up to defend civil freedoms in the united states the indictment is troubling nonetheless it characterizes as part of a criminal conspiracy journalistic t.v.'s that are not just lawful but essential to
5:03 am
press freedom now much of the indictment focuses on and conspiring with chelsea manning however it's this bit that has everyone talking. it was part of the conspiracy at the restaurant and men into commercials to conceal men and as the source of the disclosure of classified briquettes to weaken leaks including by removing the user names from the disclosed information and the lead in chat logs between man and the sounds so trying to protect the identities of anonymous leakers 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 the source tells n.b.c. news law enforcement and democratic sources telling c.n.n. that in a fired 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
5:04 am
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 the nixon administration back during the vietnam war. do you have the papers.
5:05 am
at the time so 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 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 that he's protecting his source that's what
5:06 am
journalists do is a publisher. leaks is an organization that publishes truthful 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 into 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 some more news about him to. 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 information nobel peace prize laureate maguire accepted on his behalf of. the serve the lord. goes to julian assange as
5:07 am
a thank you. this war has received established last year by a group of left wing members of the european parliament it on as people who have been persecuted or intimidated for uncovering the truth and exposing it to the public now is joining the sons currently behind bars of course he won't be able to attend the ceremony who just saw accepting the award for he wants to hand it over though to him personally at some point. i just think it's very important that we acknowledge julian assange for the create sacrifice that he has made for a saw one and must ask the question why didn't this happen before i nominated this year for the nobel peace prize for his work for peace and trying to end war and suffering of the people when he published true recchi lake's he knew he
5:08 am
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 who was arrested from there to dorian amber say so treated so badly julian assange deserves his human rights and he should be freed immediately and under no circumstances sent to america for a jury trial because if that happens we all become pera and live in a very dark or for our children the scope of those opinion all sides as i was also chipping in speaking marty's going underground show former pink floyd fragment roger waters criticize the cave not opposing us on his extradition. what they're trying to do trump and the rest of them and to raise them
5:09 am
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 a sandwich 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 watched on the t.v.
5:10 am
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 this according to leaks is said to be from french intelligence that were made public by the investigative website disclose 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 aware of the risk of this well in light of the revelations amnesty international's called on france to suspend arms sales to saudi arabia president macross government staunchly defended the cells along the way though and downplayed their role in the conflict shiela do belsky picks up the story today. france has long been criticized for supplying
5:11 am
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. if you're. but france has always hit back saying the weapons that it sells to saudi arabia
5:12 am
only used defensively 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 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 their use in the yemeni theater france is not among the. arms suppliers of
5:13 am
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 caesar are telling me 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. in. france's military
5:14 am
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 macron 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 purchaser of french elam's with deals totaling more than eleven. billion euros
5:15 am
meanwhile mark warner has talked about the ongoing crisis in yemen his country even hosted a humanitarian conference to discuss the issue but for many so far it's been all talk and little action as pockets continue to be lined all why the people of yemen face one of the world's most desperate plight. so it's even ski r.t. paris french m.p. we spoke to thinks that paris is complicit in the civilian deaths and has violated international law by supporting the saudi led bombing campaign. continues to supply weapons to the saudi led coalition then the coalition uses them as it wishes on one hand we cannot be sure how these weapons are used but on the other hand we can be sure of one thing thirty percent of coalition attacks a direct with
5:16 am
a great civilian targets so since we supply weapons that are being used in coalition strikes we help them to deliver these strikes against civilian targets in other words we are violating the rules of international law and you want them coming out mama stories were a truck in for you today they've hit london's roads for the last two days now the environmental activists are threatening the rail and chewed networks to get the climate change message across just one of the stories of this bright and. you know world a big part of the movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past
5:17 am
each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. the activity known as journalism is under assault and it didn't start with the trials of julian assange and wiki leaks once it was a noble to report on the nefarious activities of those in power now it is being criminalized free speech is now the privileged few. hello again environmental group extinction rebellion has vowed to disrupt london
5:18 am
rail and chew blinds it's absolutely three hundred activists have already been arrested after a series of protests bought traffic chaos to the british capital. thousands of taken part in coordinated sit down protest sites in the city since monday the mother of a climate change some vented their anger on the london age three of the oil giant shell smashing windows and spraying graffiti on the walls it was some protesters had to say. my grandchildren know what everybody's 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 planted die or u.k. system is now i and we all have to stop this evening thank you very frankly as you
5:19 am
well he said instructions are part of a global campaign organized by the british climate group extinction rebellion which was formed last year the movement demands governments reduce carbon emissions to zero by twenty twenty five in the program should be monitored by a public group to achieve its goals extinction rebellion promotes mass civil disobedience in the states rallies and more than thirty countries of which lead show you what happened on monday in berlin. i'm not. going to be done with the mothers of the movies. like if you know. we have demonstrations long enough we have the right and must now use the means of civil disobedience it's time to rebel. this whole huge issue of climate change has placed activist tim jones laundry walker up little commentator new york observer columnist in opposing corners. the point that we're
5:20 am
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 about a comparison is what we have to think about what these people believe that just because they think their rights they are anything that they do is morally justified that is an extremely dangerous i think stream the on democratic positions and it's gross we are making 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 that is relevant to what we're talking about if your house was on fire and you were 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 dogs come and save you then that would be a little bit absurd to claim that smashing up the shell building is akin to saving
5:21 am
people in a fire is absolutely offensive the truth is you are justified harassment you are justified bullying you are justified criminal climate's 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 all blue play a return to the stone age the idea that people do not believe in man made global warming in this country is nonsense we've got ultra low emissions and just been launched in london that's a fact and diesel calls we've got a lot until tax which means that you have to recycle everything on less you want to pay a hundred dollars a tonne this is classic denial what's that got to what none of those things got anything to do with climate change ok or the or the collapse of. biodiversity in the world they've got nothing to do it so you're just distracting from what is a terrifying prospect and. i mean change is going to get worse and worse and worse
5:22 am
more and more more quickly and if we don't act now even if it's not that they fast difficult then where we are completely don't want to avoid bad language but we're in a bad way and the only way that we can do this is with radical action all of the scientists that have given predictions of the world's going to end in five ten fifteen years all of those deadlines have passed and so they singled out just. because i for the most of the i.p.c.c. predictions going back if you look back at what they said what happened they were massive underestimate especially if you look at things like the decline of arctic ice they massively underestimate what has happened i'm going to bet you if you're dead as a result of climate change by sixty five that i will pay fuel for your little 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 if you also come to that you're going to be dead by retirement age will you take that bet you're on the conversation went on the shoulder of the awful extent
5:23 am
of the damage the world can see through these pictures in from a video agency really by the way france trying to come to terms then with the devastating fire vigils have been held in paris over. under the firefighters battled the flags for nearly twelve hours such was the size of that blaze on monday evening but. most of the reason unless it was lost many precious artifacts were saved from that building by a quick thinking human chain restoration which was on the way the time investigate is looking into that as a possible cause of the blaze many leaders and companies from around the world now a chipping in expressing the sadness and willingness to help rebuild a. sorry

5:28 am
africa yes well u.s. president donald trump has been busy building or trying to build walls of barbed wire and hate metal in order to protect our southern border from poor people that don't look like him farmers environmentalist and scientists working in more than twenty african nations have been building a wall of trees indigenous land use techniques environmental per environmental protection to help combat the d. desertification of africa originally started back in two thousand and seven with just eleven countries involved the ambitious project stretches across roughly six thousand miles eight thousand kilometers of drain that at the southern at the southern edge of the sahara desert in a region known as the. back by a qadri of conservation groups and governments around the world if the wall is completed it would be three times the size of the great barrier reef. with fifteen percent of the wall completed just ten years in the project there's still yes a long way to go but supporters are determined this grand green dream will work
5:29 am
because unlike walls made of stone and concrete this wall is made with love and life which is the only walls truly worth building when you're watching the hawks. this. is. what they like that i got. while they were watching the hawks i am a robot and i'm to have a. this is the kind of well i love to see yes this is also a fun show to have just not have miserable things to talk about i'm really excited about this and i think this is one of the coolest things that we've seen as far as
5:30 am
ecology and a whole continent involving numerous countries coming together and so the original plan was that this plan was to plan this great wall of trees it was going to be ten miles wide and ultimately forty three hundred fifty miles long and what it does have bisects about a dozen countries but it runs about senegal in the west and then just to djibouti in the east but the biggest problem with growing something of this size and this scope is desertification so where places were food bowls and places where things could be you know grown and all of this it's much harder than it is right to be written about art of swathes of where on that no one is on the way to be able to cultivate the individual trees as they grow and things like that but plans change and they realized it's not just a by.
