you're watching r t international bring you your life news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. france's interior minister is being branded a liar after claiming anti-capitalists attacked staff at a paris hospital during a may day rally that turned ugly but videos an eyewitness accounts of the incident suggest they were actually taking cover from right police firing tear gas are. reports from the french capital. violence on may the first has been well documented in one of the most shocking stories that emerge from that violence with these allegations and particularly by frances interior minister that actually some of the reuters and those protesters were trying to attack a hospital trying to attack the staff and trying to enter into that hospital this particular hospital was actually a surgical intensive care unit and there was descriptions of the patients inside
11:02 am
saying that they were in quite carry situation many of them were intimidated some ventilated and that the staff at whom rickly tried to fight off that attack of those protesters entering into the site this is what france's interior minister had to say about that event. the. hospital was attacked its medical staff were attacked and the police officer sent to protect them was hurt unshakable faith in our security services there the pride of the republic well that's his version of events but in a twist going on here social media has been flooded with videos showing exactly what happened on the ground in that hospital and actually what we've seen from those videos and social media some of which were actually taken by members of staff inside the hospital don't show what the interior minister said happened in fact what they show is that the c.r.s. the security forces with charging at protesters those protesters were fleeing from
11:03 am
the security services and as such they were seeking refuge inside the hospital not just for that charge but also because of the tear gas that had been deployed in the area so a very different version of events and as such opposition politicians here in france have described christopher kasten a as being a liar and some of them have even called to his resignation. if it was a deliberate lie in turn and soley to deliver and turn issues social movement then the interior minister should be fired with our doing. kristoff. shamelessly and manipulated the press to spread these lies you know who's enough given the facts he has no choice but to resign well in other developments coming out of that may day protests in france it's also emerged that this video showing the police officers actually picking up paving stones from the road and throwing
11:04 am
that towards protesters now we know that this is a weapon of arsenal that the protesters have used for many months during the yellow vest protests and indeed on the may day but this is the first time in paris we've seen evidence of the police using what essentially is an sanctioned weapon against the protesters it begs the question whether the police are the ones who inciting the violence and instead of trying to control the situation they're actually poor ring oil on the fire meanwhile some hospital staff members have spoken to the media and ascribe the moment when maybe protesters rushed into the facility. julian the most number of them startled us at first but very quickly they started to listen some try to calm them down it's a hospital calmed down they understood that we couldn't lead the man and now when it comes to finding someone to blame we don't know there's nothing to say i think when you take part in a protest things always get
11:05 am
a little bit out of hand and that's the wait is. on the there were several of us we didn't see any black blocks we saw some yellow vests who were in the panning going in all directions there were about ten of them they went up the stairs and at the door they asked for something for their eyes which they said were stinging we saw no signs of forced entry no doors or anything some colleagues did go to treat their eyes. to the u.k. now we're opposition m.p.'s are calling for an official inquiry into the allegedly of secret plans by sack defense minister gavin williamson but prime minister theresa may insists the matter is now closed and this far is only due to a loss of confidence in him artist playboy has more. this was a man of course who had huge political ambitions it was said that he wanted to work his way to the very top to succeed to reason may but his fall from grace appears to
11:06 am
have been even faster than the sort of foss track to success to resume a sacked him as defense secretary earlier this week she accused him of leaking highly sensitive information i put to you delayed us information from the investigation which provides compelling evidence suggesting your responsibility for do you not to rise disclosure i can no longer have full confidence in you as secretary of state for the fence and a minister in my cabinet and ask you to leave her majesty's government given williamson is calling for a criminal investigation into the leak in order to establish his innocence he's sworn on his kids' lives that he wasn't behind the leak there are now rumors in westminster that williamson could be out for revenge that he's got enough dirt on the prime minister to bring her down she's been working at the top level of cabinet the highest echelons of power for a few years now he was eventually brought into cabinet as defense secretary way he
11:07 am
was rather outspoken and. frankly brochure should go away it should sure to. answer here. let me thank you. for the very real business that. indeed we take a carrot and stick to the great. personally i don't look like the stick. but it is amazing. what's come be achieved with the show and. you can see that gavin williamson wasn't without his quotes he was famous in parliament for keeping a pet tarantula named crudeness on his desk and he has been posting rather
11:08 am
a lot on social media in fact he's quite prolific keep posted since his sacking a photograph on instagram with his two pet dogs saying that it's been a really tough week but it's all ok when you get to come home to your pets he says he's going to have a lot more time for them now he's now been replaced by the u.k.'s first ever female defense secretary penny mordant she's a royal navy reservist and fun fact she once worked as a magician's assistant now looking at the dye in local election results today am with gregg's it still dragging on and with williamson refusing to shut up and go away perhaps to reason may is hoping that some of the militants magic will rub off on her. facebook has been prominent conservative anti-establishment figures from its platform citing policy against dangerous individuals and organizations the ban
11:09 am
also applies to facebook and instagram most of the people on the list of prominent media profiles that includes the likes of alex jones with his website in for wars exploit news editor michael you now post and political activists. moreover anyone who promotes their content on social media faces a similar fate facebook underlines it's always branded individuals or organizations that promote or indeed have violence and hate regardless of our geology but youtube or poll just wants and who has also been banned by the social media giant claims the moves purely political. i was given no reason whatsoever for being banned by facebook or instagram this is punishment this is a political purge this has nothing to do with hate violating terms of service yesterday not to call about how i was leavin in the still gulag on holocaust remembrance day and today even though i am
11:10 am
a zionist and have dedicated my life to competent jew hatred these nazis in silicon valley ban me facebook's action has sparked a censorship debate with some saying the company should ban more people while others warn of repercussions on free speech then harris quiney chair of the british think tank the brown group thinks facebook is suppressing one side of the political debate and therefore the company should face regulation. they're reacting to the election results like the brits like the election of donald trump and it would appear that they feel there's a company that they want to put themselves on the side of the debate they need to be regulated as such as a as a political actor in the debate rather than a platform for three debate which i think it's not very clear they are not facebook very clearly pushing themselves on one side of the playschool debate it is absolutely it could tell them to free speech because they're saying these individuals are dangerous well and many people like myself see them as perfectly
11:11 am
reasonable act is it a political debate stay have huge following across a variety of platforms facebook is clearly pushing itself as a political act why is excusing the regulation that other media companies face. and alleged long time collaborator of wiki leaks co-founder julian assange or remain in pretrial detention and i quote or a court in the country has dismissed an appeal by the cyber security expert who was arrested in cuba last month on the same day i was taken into custody in the u.k. all of beanie is a well known software developer and privacy activist he's reportedly worked with wiki leaks in the past you know it was arrested by ecuadorian authorities on charges of trying to hack computer systems in the country however his lawyers claim the case is politically motivated now and not every investigation by they have been demonstrated what seems to me is. when he did it or where to look
11:12 am
i mean what's the information that we're going to show to the world that the decision made here was a political one millions hit the wall there were aspects of the hearings that i did not like for example the difference in time allocated that we were granted just fifty minutes to talk with the prosecutors spoke for almost one hour and fifteen minutes look at sickly some of our arguments were dismissed by the judges. julian assange himself is in a british prison after being sentenced to fifty weeks jail for breaking his bail terms he is also awaiting trial of a request for his extradition to the united states where he's wanted for allegedly conspiring to hack into classified government files a songe told a london court on thursday that he wouldn't surrender voluntarily to the americans activist mauri love who also is accused of hacking into u.s. government computers leaves a songe will have a huge battle ahead of him. i think he's going to have an uphill struggle everyone has an uphill struggle under us that she should request because it's
11:13 am
a very balanced treaty so the u.s. doesn't have to provide any evidence they just have to have the paperwork in which the presumption is lead towards extradition we managed to win because of a lot of campaigning and a lot of support political support for him and he. is going to have a harder time because he's already out of this politically he's upset the establishment in the u.k. the establishment i would say he's complicit in his persecution and we need to do everything we can as members of the public and sequel to this list of people in both journalism to ensure that we do you know i allow the injustice and isolation to happen. there have been farcical scenes in the united states congress after the man who redacted the moeller report into a large coalition between trump and russia failed to show for a grilling attorney general william barr snubbed at the hearing saying he'd already told senators all the house to say about his version of the report democratic
11:14 am
lawmakers who want to see the document in full color theatrically placed barres name card in front of an empty chair and congressman steve cohen then put a ceramic chicken on the desk as a symbol of the attorney general's alleged cowardice and talked into some k.f.c. not only do democrats want far as had to roll they're now charges of contempt of congress killed up and has the details well a very short hearing on cap. itll hill as william barr the us attorney general did not attend he did not show up for the hearing before the house judiciary committee that he was subpoenaed to testify before now representative gnabry who is the chair of the committee is now at this point considering bringing charges of contempt of congress against him for failing to testify when subpoenaed however republican legislators had a different opinion and argued that his testimony yesterday in the grilling he received from democrats was basically a circus and a charade and that he should not be obligated to continue going through that yes
11:15 am
failed the men and women of the department of justice by placing the needs of the president over the ferry administration of justice and yes we will have no choice but to move quickly to hold you through generally in contempt if you store to negotiate in good faith mr barnes moment of accountability will come soon enough and i think that probably one of the democrats scared of they don't know bill barr here today they've had the report they read it they don't like what's in it for the still in the circus continues over here the department of justice has made a less redacted version of bob miller's report available to top democrats but these top congressional democrats navl are palosi and others have refused to read it and said that instead they want the entire report revealed to a wider audience the chairman willing to go look at what the attorney general offered him it's pretty amazing to me he wants to go in executive session ask questions about it but he won't go read it now things escalated from there members of congress basically tried to be somewhat the after cole
11:16 am
a bucket of fried chicken was displayed in order to illustrate the argument that that he was that william barr was chicken or cowardly for not attending furthermore they made a point of looking under the desk to make sure that william barr was not hiding under the desk in fear chicken bar should have shown up today and answered questions of black socks look clean compared to this team. it's a sad day in america democrats are considering contempt of congress charges against barr but republicans are saying he did the right thing and that this is simply a politically motivated investigation intended to undermine the u.s. president the trump russia story persists with more hearings more testimony and possible contempt charges for the u.s. attorney general the congress in its capacity here is not really investigating malfeasance by the attorney general which is their job as oversight they're actually having some perry mason like a mole or two investigation which will gain them nothing and the bar i think
11:17 am
just basically said look six hours of this is enough i'm done they didn't want him to show up they made it impossible for him to come so that they could have the theater they had today it's about politics it's not about finding any wrongdoing that part is over now we have the political discussion the tiny tiny tiny portion that's not grand jury testimony that was actually redacted that's been made available to the committee and they don't want to look at it because as i said they want the theater that they don't want cooperation they're not looking for something bad they've decided there's something bad they make the bald assertion and that's good enough for them coming up in the program it seems sun and see aren't the only thing is getting people trotting towards the bahamas for their holidays we'll tell you what else has got the people squealing with delight after the break.
