6:04 pm
activity and since the 2016 election the company has been on an all out crusade against it i think to city matters because people need to trust that the content they are seeing is valid and they need to trust the connections they make or identifying and challenging 8 to 10000000 suspicious accounts every week we're also going to require people running large pages with large audiences the united states to go through an authorization process and confirm their identity over 2000000000 accounts were deleted in the 1st quarter of 29000 alone with fingers pointed at russia 1st and then iran and china later on and all the while congress has been spurring on the assault your companies announced a series of successful disruptions that resulted in the removal of pages groups and accounts my instinct is to applaud the village him some of your security teams and credit you with taking the problem very seriously social media giants might find it easy to declare war on an authentic activity it thinks might be going on abroad but
6:05 pm
when they know that their own government is itself using underhanded tactics to advance its agenda who knows if the same standards will apply whistleblower and former cia officer john kiriakou since the new policies could push social media users to switch from american by stunts to better protected networks this is an old trick used by local police departments to infiltrate a protest group. to see what opponents of the police are doing is something that's been adopted now as a harassment technique by immigration services here this is american exceptionalism isn't it it's ok for the united states because we're the good guys it's not ok for anybody else because they're not the good guys this catches up after a while and this is going to make friends and foes alike angry and think twice about u.s. policy specially as it comes to immigration i would point to platforms or organizations
6:06 pm
that are that are hosted overseas that are encrypted that are better protected things like proton through example. that that the united states doesn't have to reach into there is no backdoor there is no secret handshake with the c.e.o. of the company and the cia or n.s.a. or f.b.i. i hope that people do get tired of this and look elsewhere outside of facebook and twitter and instagram for some personal protection. filters of germany parties celebrating a local election break through intimidation movement came 2nd in state elections in brandenburg and saxony significantly increasing their influence in those polled once was those results were some of the best for the party since it was formed 56 years ago the ruling christian democrats said that they will not work with the f.d.a.
6:07 pm
the trial of a has more from berlin. also from brandenburg it was a win for the social democrats in a campaign that they were neck and neck with a.f. they threw out the alternative for germany picking up around 23 percent of the vote there with as social democrats winning on 25 percent in saxony we saw massive gains for alternative for germany it wasn't enough for them to win the state that went to the christian democratic union policy 2720. 8 percent for alternative for germany in saxony could end up rising as high as 30 big gains for them there and it is the sensational results we have achieved the best result in local elections ever and we can see that 30 years after the fall of the wall governments don't want to be left wing need the. me let me just see it is clear these 2 elections have had only one winner the dean we've seen from other politicians who have been
6:08 pm
looking at these results from alternative for germany and they're not happy about the role they've played in allowing a.f.d. to make such big games but. i am happy that we have a really good result what worries me is a result in this means we continue to face big challenges in this country. we all hope for more and wished for more and i'm also disappointed like many others are disappointed no question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this result alternative journey were founded as the anti euro euro skeptic party back in 2013 but it was following the influx of refugees and migrants into germany in 2016 that they started to pick up a lot of points a lot of votes in the east of the country the big problem is going to come now is how they're going to form some form of coalition in these 2 states because the major parties the established parties i guess you could call them now both states
6:09 pm
have said they will not work with alternatives to germany that means you probably looking at at least a 3 party coalition in both states a well quite confluences coalition a real broad church is going to have to be put in there because of the large chunk the large proportion of the votes that alternative for germany have picked up in both the states of brandenburg and saxony here in germany. we got the fees of both the left party and the f.t. on those results you can be very powerful even many on a position and especially when you have a weak governments against you and what we see and sex on even just a most important east german federal state and there we have a christian democrat party that at least used to be quite conservative and we have greens that are a lefty for greens so now they have to to build a coalition or do they don't fit together at all so we've all had
6:10 pm
a weak government we've all seen the party members of both the greens and the christian democrats are very on a happy about that so at a new government will be very unstable and we're very strong and we are together and united and when you are a strong opposition force and you have been in stable government then you can kind of reach a lot so i guess it's a mistake that you have to be part of a government to change a country you can change it by good position by good media and by good arguments and add all those to tossed for us in the next years do you has an agenda and really that is based on it will centric nationalism militarism will elect a new liberalism as well as racism exclusion interests onto morals success of the years for you but it's also really going to be governments this happens on the fundamental of the last 30 years of german politics 30 years of your liberalism
6:11 pm
this is politics destroyed that humans fundament at least of the german society and the left. didn't find the clue to really criticize the call to teach which is conducted in the moment consequently there is a problem and it's a problem as well to my mind the journey they are. doing very well inside. forward to schools this which feeds the ideology of the as long as that happen. not be easy to have to change their all qualities. 2 days a vigils of being held for the most deadly terrorist attack in russia's history $334.00 people were killed mostly children during a siege in which more than a 1000 people were taken hostage at a school in the north are set in town of beslan warning you may find these following images disturbing.
