1:01 am
good morning this is r.t. low from moscow with a 30 minute worldviews round it was tuesday morning so then those headlines a bit more detail 1st to haiti where violent demonstrations of erupted with protesters calling for the president's resignation the latest on rest has been sparked by a police report that suggests a massacre in the country's capital in mid november could have been linked to the government. today the country has reached and the population can no longer accept the situation .
1:02 am
they were shooting and i was running to save my life it was a terrible massacre. they were dashed in police. masks. they snatched people and killed them. the situation in haiti is escalating a population that is largely unemployed without electricity and without money once the president out. what no one is out now there is reduced night life know all the streets of dark you just don't know what are you going to run into you just can't go anywhere now the united nations has launched an investigation now in march of 104 members of the u.s. congress signed a letter to the u.s.
1:03 am
secretary of state calling for an independent investigation as of yet there has been no answer during an impromptu visit to haiti last month congresswoman maxine waters expressed very serious concerns about u.s. aid going to the country when we talk about how we care about haiti and why we are able to contribute the way that we do and we do not want to see. that abused or misused to disregard it i think that may give us a little leverage but the trump administration seems confident in the aligned regime. we have always underscored in there are statements as well as our diplomatic conversations our belief in the g.t. mysie of heat is institutions and its elected officials so far there has been no comment from the u.s. state department on the massacre while washington routinely condemns governments around the world for allegedly violating human rights when it comes to haiti the white house is unusually silent and artsy new york. and europe austria's governing
1:04 am
coalitions been left in tatters over to the right wing freedom party announced on monday that all of its ministers are to step down the masters of nations in response to the chancellor's attempt to suck the interior minister over his response to a corruption sting this tarnish the party's image peter all of our europe correspondent. what we saw on monday evening was the chancellor say that he wanted the interior minister. gone now he doesn't have the power and constitution to do that the what he can do is ask the president of austria to do it for him now that's being done and that prompted all of the freedom party members of the austrian cabinet to step down from the government said he wants a full and transparent investigation into what's going on. i am of the firm conviction that full transparency and a complete and impartial explanation is now needed. it all leads to
1:05 am
a conflict and situation which would have concluded if the interior minister had withdrawn from his functions he didn't take that step and in this respect i decided to in consultation with the federal president and i would recommend the dismissal of the interior minister well this all relates to the beef it tapes the bombshell which has blown apart australian politics what this was was released over the weekend it saw christie in the former now former vice chancellor of austria he was videoed back in 2017 before the elections in a luxury villa in baith speaking to well a woman who purport to be representing a wealthy russian. we understand that she had a latvian passport as well this was all happening in a villa that was rigged with microphones and cameras and he said basically that he could help her with 250000000 euros worth of investment into austria that wasn't
1:06 am
exactly legitimate particularly he also pointed out that he would like to see her invest in a major austrian tabloid newspaper to help promote her and his party. it is the source of. mean he's a liar. he's a hero. yes it was stupid yes it was responsible yes it was a mistake but at the same time it was a victim of a targeted political attack that had used illegal means of the freedom pass the word guess we can't say are anymore technically they still are but they were the junior partner in the coalition government in austria their members held some pretty well really serious positions it's not just the vice chancellor ship we're talking about it's not just the interior ministry also the ministry of foreign affairs the ministry of health the ministry of defense amongst all of these crucial
1:07 am
positions now no longer have anybody in them this big scandal comes just days before major european parliamentary elections take place and if you look at those who oppose the freedom party and others in europe well they've been making well and they've been making great gains with this as they go to their electorate we heard angle a merkel the german chancellor speak at a campaign rally in zagreb in croatia and which see she said look at this see what this shows it shows you can't trust the populace to chose you can't trust the right wing you can't work with them and they will ultimately let you down we haven't to deal with populist movements that in many areas a contemptuous of this found us who want to destroy the europe now what we are expecting is out of the $751.00 seats that are available in the european parliament for parties that describe themselves as being on the right of the political spectrum to take around 250 and they were hoping to form
1:08 am
a big block together however the thing is right now nobody wants to work with the freedom party of austria they have very much tainted by this scandal. next this morning britain's minister of defense is facing intense scrutiny after revelations on how it shares intelligence with allies information could be exchanged even if it's the result of torture all could lead to the abuse of detainees. well there remains a serious risk of torture post mitigation minister should be consulted as outlined above but the presumption would be that we will not proceed unless ministers agree that the potential benefits justify accepting the risk and the legal consequences that may follow or besides giving ministers higher powers as we've heard the new policy also allows them to pre-approve a list of high threat individuals about whom information may be shared now activists fear that could expose detainees to the risk of mistreatment or even torture if they were included all this stands in contradiction to the government's
1:09 am
own policies on torture indeed they clearly state that the u.k. personnel must not take part nor encourage instances of torture abuse or mistreatment the so-called consolidated guidance service is a rule of conduct for the ministry of defense as well as the u.k.'s intelligence agencies when peace called on the recently appointed secretary of defense to explain the changes in torture guidelines ease laws and norms are there not just to protect the enemy they also protect our own armed forces. we cannot overrule the law nor can ministers be advised to. the law or disregard the law because we can learn that what they made of these new guidelines on torture them but if you care is relatively straight and. honest about the radios would like. but it's just me somebody should have a drink of a can during the just coming aboard. or not condoning. coverage or nothing to
1:10 am
stop or why they probably turned a blind eye or swear and they probably do it here. with this government so that's how i feel. where you can buy a certain human rights advocate craig murray told us the ministries actions make the country complicit in torture. no intention of cutting off those intelligence sharing agreements they will just come out again with some more mealy mouthed language about not condoning or not encouraging it plainly illegal in terms of international law the united nations convention against torture paragraph or talks of complicity and torture and by continually and pretty well on a daily basis taining intelligence from the torture chambers of countries like saudi arabia or bahrain united kingdom is plainly complicit the united kingdom no longer kids it was acting illegally in international law the united kingdom has
1:11 am
become a state. help us take them all here in moscow this is out international good morning keep it up can children be raised on a vegan diet is the question the doctors in belgium don't think so will bring more opinion on that was a comeback. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next about different clubs on one hand it is logical to go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising. what not to give you. i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to go.
1:12 am
by the way ways of that slide here. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. i take him on his r.t. i'm kevin owen so next that group of leading doctors in belgium are warning parents against raising the children or vague and even suggesting that they should face prosecution if they did so for depriving them of essential nutrients excess when it
1:13 am
comes from the country's role academy of medicine which is the dietary choice and ethical it is not medically recommended and even forbidden to subject a child especially during periods of rapid growth to a potentially destabilizing diet requiring frequent supplementation and control these concepts of nutrition is similar to a form of treatment that is no ethical to impose on children. if you can diet excludes all forms of animal based products including eggs and dairy according to the study around 3 percent of belgian children do stick to this lifestyle vegans insist that their diet has a number of benefits including increased energy levels as well as lowering blood sugar and co and cholesterol levels but this pinion is not fully shared by the royal academy of medicine on the medical side they stand by something different they say most parents are not able to provide ongoing medical supervision which they say is needed for the children they say it's a restrictive diet and order to avoid deficiencies they need to be supervised so anyway this all stay also claim that some suitable not only for young children but
1:14 am
also teenagers and pregnant women this is fight of opinion on social media as you can expect. kiss my vague and belgium my kid's been vegan since conception on his perfectly healthy child abuse being an ism should be a choice left to mature humans meanwhile here in backwards belgium what's next you bunch of not to doctors sterilize us young children need milk butter and some meat along with vegetables as an adult you are free to make a choice but don't feed into young children it's criminal should be so is it right or is it wrong to put children on a vegan diet we put that question to our guests. i don't think it's necessary to penalize it's necessary to give a good advice and to take into account the preferences of the parents the more restrictions you used the more. risk there is of deficiency if you're over the age
1:15 am
of 16 or 18 depending on the country you're living in you can make whatever decision you want i personally to a low carb high fat diet but i know i shouldn't let my children do that because they need the carbohydrates to grow no parent has a right to abuse their child or no parent has a right to put their child in danger and this is clearly put in the main danger there are certain sentiments now you cannot get on a vegan diet parents don't make their children the beacon isn't is a protected ethical orientation at the level of human rights and all parents who live their lives according to deep convictions have the right to raise their children according to those moral convictions and if children are suffering neglect then this ought to be dealt with very precisely as child neglect regardless of the ethical orientation of the parent vitamin b 12 without dirt. need supply
1:16 am
mentation because it's not present in an active form in any plant based nutritional source be careful about fighting the twelth also in the mother if she has a figure for a long time it's possible that she doesn't present symptoms of vitamin b 12 deficiency or while breast milk may not contain sufficient vitamin b 12 for the little child and does deficiency is especially important while it can cause irreversible damage to a donor electrical system there are lots of belief communities that feed their children even actually terry and that the chains. the blood tests they they are vegetarian and he get. so i really don't understand why the men the
1:17 am
medical profession is targeting the piquant community began to esther is approved as healthy and nutritious for all stages of life and is endorsed by the british american and canadian dietetic a nutritional parties on a strict being and not rich parents a strict vegan diet you do not get the visions they take these assert ruins you cannot get served it means in particular be 12 so denying your children that kind of meat and dairy i think it is a full of child abuse i don't really want governments to get involved in family life but if we can cheat courage them as the belgians certainly then the state does have a responsibility when it comes to child abuse and that's what i think it is. around says it's quadrupled its production of low enriched uranium pushing the limits of the floundering 2050 nuclear deal then it's a fresh escalation with the united states which pulled out of the deal more than
1:18 am
a year ago driving around to suspend its commitments earlier this month is a middle east correspondent paula slayer. iran has quadrupled its production of low enrich uranium the country's capacity to enrich uranium has been increased without adding any new change or centrifuge so the design information related to these has been submitted to the international atomic energy agency and this comes against the backdrop of increased tensions between the united states and iran and also the continuing unraveling of the nuclear deal that was signed back in 2015 if iran wants to fight that will be the official end of the iran never threatened the united states again. iranians have stood tall for millenia while aggressors all gone economic terrorism in genocidal tones won't and that's why those days of increased tensions that was sparked by the american administration sending bombers and an aircraft carrier to the persian gulf now they did this because of what they
1:19 am
perceive for threats from the brain inside it comes as the israeli and president says he is open to holding crisis talks with international partners but that iran will not respond to any kind of threats any kind of hostility and any kind of attempts at coersion the american position has been clear for quite some time that we welcome to go situation could we do not negotiate with a party that behaves like a bully and takes a knife out of his pocket and force against all talks we do not hold such negotiations with anybody the leaders of iran are record piers the world's largest financier of international terrorism behind every problem is already what we've been trying to do is to get iran to behave like a normal nation the united states has been applying a maximum pressure campaign against iran ever since the nuclear deal began to collapse last year and at the same time it's been imposing crippling sanctions earlier this month he ran did warn that it would begin enriching uranium to high
1:20 am
levels if the remaining signatories did not manage to offset it or in some kind of way protected against the. can measures now the europeans have been trying to do this but it's far from clear whether or not they'll succeed washington claims that he ran is looking to develop nuclear weapons and this is a claim that iran has consistently denied at the same time the nuclear watchdog the international atomic energy agency has never found iran in contravention of any kind of stipulations in the deal what we've seen happen is an increase on the iranian side in production by some 3.67 percent of enrich uranium a spokesperson for the iranian nuclear agency has said that this does not mean that iran will increase the number of centrifuges in use which is one of the stipulations in the nuclear deal but however we could see that within weeks iran will reach that 300 kilogram limit and this is a stipulation in the deal so ultimately what could happen is that iran could soon
1:21 am
go beyond the stockpile limitations which are specified in the nuclear deal now publicly both iran and the united states say that they don't want to go with go to war with the other side but the the big concern is that any kind of miscalculation at this particularly put carious time could see the whole situation going out of control yeah well meantime u.s. president donald trump says he's ready to negotiate with but only one quote the ready from also once again warned against making what he called provocative actions or threats. so. we have no indication that. anything has happened or will happen but if it does it will be obviously with great force. we'll see what happens if they call it certainly they go but that's going to be up to them i don't we want to call it they're ready to pre-crisis situation right now and
1:22 am
a lot depends on the political will and the determination of the europeans to join russia and china. the other signatories to the party in order to preempt this what i'm getting into a full blown crisis is a very critical situation and we are at a crossroads basically of peace and war you've got iraq president in the white house and surrounded by these over house that search for another war with iran and. allied with saudi arabia and israel iran is right rivals that may instigate a false flag planted accident and so forth in order to lure mr trump to war with iran despite is the stated intention of limiting him self to economic warfare which is really as bad as war itself. tensions flare between police and anti fascist activists in the town and city bologna on monday the anger erupted over

1:29 am
a special show for you to today today we're all about the block chain and we're bringing you cutting edge insights from the biggest names in the chain set. to change things often like to welcome our own brand. our own brand to bore who joins us in studio. christiane who joins us from los angeles today tons of content straight ahead so let's just get to it right now now the ever changing landscape cryptocurrency has raised a lot of question. a lot of questions about the knowledge of the not least of which is regulation of the crypto currency space while bitcoin the world's most popular virtual currency is viewed and legally treated as a commodity in the united states initial coin offerings or token sold during the fund raising process are regulated securities this is one reason why the u.s. has been left out many many of those c.e.o.'s and many people in crypto currency traders in countries like the united arab emirates are starting to support these i.c.a.o.
1:30 am
as more and more kristie tell us why is the united states such an outlier on the restrictive and the spectrum when it comes to these i.c. o's. so the u.s. doesn't make these regulations for no good reason the f.c.c. who actually is there for because right now they're looking at the i see a landscape as a call back to the i.p.o. heyday which then led to the stock one of the biggest stock market crashes in 1929 following the stock market crash in 1929 the f.c.c. was actually created in 1934 specifically for the sole purpose to prevent some sort of market manipulation like the i.p.o. crisis from ever happening again so now they're looking at crypto currency am i seeing this as a threat i see those are going unchecked and they're raising money from a lot of investors who have no idea what they're actually invested in which is why right now the i.c.c. is actually clamping down and they're making sure that they're more transparent about fund raising they're only raising from accredited investors investors who actually know what block chain and the technology is.
