a developed lithium industry mr alberto and i plan to set lithium prices on the world market i realized that some industrialized countries are afraid to compete 1st in the field of technological development and 2nd they do not want other countries to follow the example of our economic model which is based on socialism. this is a colossal struggle i'm convinced of it i had faith in the armed forces because i thought that in the military there are patriots and the imperialists however certain generals on the center of the highest gear they surprised me i could not believe it and i had a wonderful relationship with all the military leaders of course there are good soldiers and military leaders but when it comes to the cost struggles with some forget about their ideological stance and their patriotism consequently their interests are affected they lost part of their power and cannot forgive us for this has nothing to do with being indigenous or not after morales resigning and has proclaimed herself interim president she is backed by bolivia's military and she's

journalist chris hedges says the u.s. has a hand in the crisis. this is the revolving or story of latin america that as soon as a populist figure like evo morales appears the knives come out on the part of the empire and on the part of those corporations that hold especially the natural resources in a place like bolivia hostage there's been a constant conflict between. these corporations and evo morales let me stop you there because you just said something that's very interesting there may be a reason for the united states government the government of chris hedges and rick sanchez for the country where we live to do things from time to time in other places right but it seems like what you just described is something where no one asked chris no one asked rick no one talked to our media no one talked to our congress it just happens out of thin air we go and destabilize the government
8:08 am
doesn't that seem crazy yeah but that's you know decades of practice of the you know the so-called invisible state was the but it's how the cia operates they operate you know completely in the shadows and they operate on the be hast of the business interests i mean united fruit didn't want arbenz around before they got rid of them so on and on and on this goes back decades and decades and decades it of it's about the maintenance of empire and that's what we're seeing in libya where i lived in bolivia the spanish in bolivia this is the pattern and now they found lithium living well and apparently that is a huge it is the oil of the future and guess who wanted to control it and guess who they didn't want to control it even more out exactly evo morales said even though he brought poverty down in a country where no one else that i do this in was we want to control the lithium and the multinational corporations they they set the machine in

8:11 am
any sense soo confused the way that they reverted to their base behavior animal instinct i found out the blood in reputed to be president so. i learned a lot about the early on from the series that were being held perhaps relayed to me a putin also wants you to stop sniffing strangers' hair but hey that hasn't stopped you as a job putin kremlin moscow russia. we've heard it all before everyone has. as desperate are they that they're turning to the spiritual the democrats are making a sacrifice crucifying one of their own to beat trump it's unfortunate that we have someone on the stage who is attempting to be the democratic nominee for president the united states. criticizing people on this stage affiliated with the democratic party let's also talk about judgment one of the
8:12 am
foreign leaders you mentioned meeting. that i would not have sat down with a murderous dictator like that. that should do it that should beat trump smearing a fellow democrat and alienating her voters they did the same thing to bernie in 2016 remember even rigged a primary against him didn't work so they're doing it again only logical flaws are tea apparently favors told see the thing thank you anna lived thousands of pages on dot com built graphs and charts and plots and came to the conclusion that russia would prefer a u.s. president that wouldn't want to launch missiles at moscow you know how the saying goes you can teach an old dog new tricks and add seems to be the problem with a democrat sticking to old tricks to cliches well i can say is fellows good
8:13 am
luck winning that election. in france the clash between secularism and religion has sparked another spat that after a local retirement home shut its doors on an elderly catholic nun for not keeping her religion to herself. reports. a nun from eastern france had been wearing her habit for more than 70 if she didn't plan on changing that when she decided to cash in her retirement plan and move into a nursing home that didn't happen because the facility refused to provide her with it services because she in turn refused to take off religious clothing and that hasn't gone well with the religious community here i do not see how a nuns veil can be described as offensive it is not a symbol of submission but the symbol of consecration but the nursing home says
8:14 am
there will be no appeals the case is closed they say all religious apparel is banned at the facility to buy to buy friends is more than a century long reign of secularism a small chain with a cross that was the only bit of faith the nun was allowed to physically take with the into the home shedding the rest at the gates the nun refused the place we offered her and didn't want to accept the house rules that are the same for everyone within our homes our residents may have preferences and beliefs and they should be respected with regard to secularism all ostentatious religious symbols cannot be allowed in order to guarantee everyone's tranquillity. christianity phobia is a relatively new phenomenon born out of france's strict secularism there's another one you might be moved from illegal with islamophobia the muslim community in france has been fighting for the right to wear their religious clothing in public for a long time. was from the carbs to borchers to burqini
8:15 am
the muslim swimwear for women france has gone through countless scandals around islamic clothing christianity has been steering clear of this controversy until now i don't i hate that she should not be allowed to go we don't play and indeed damon the whole image is seeing. you see this is a legal eagle because they stay above the vehicle used against the metal and now they get a legal one but the 1st be good eating the after play just symbols to everybody and then the over stage the halls because the secular who is not implied that you dandle we did a reading there a daemon the whole market us i didn't you should be open minded you see things should be easy ok you want to live their lives i mean who cares that's not the public oh isn't this a problem. the military is the problem they're looking into parliament but they slow problem we do see you see this is just the most superficial and the most
8:16 am
unimportant but there is difference between. the low that clings secure risible france and the philosophy of sickle or ism you can be also a believer. a secure person that means that you can be a muslim a jew a buddhists a protest an unorthodox whatever you want unless you respect the law the only fink that is forbidden is to claim religious idea for political actions because people are afraid of what can be a terrorist attack very or mixing all the ideas and so on that respecting the will still had in the program ukraine attained a 2nd i saw leader and i weak details after the break.
8:17 am
you know world's big partisan group. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that make the stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past 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. to get the 500 to a new high transparency has been obliterated. sound accounting has been obliterated all economic policy that is tied to any economics call that makes any
8:18 am
economic sense has been ignored and obliterated the rule of law has been obliterated everything having to do with the sound society is being ignored to get a number to a higher level and it's getting so higher level but at what cost. welcome back well western media obsess over alleged ukraine ties to us politicians has been exposed in a far more disturbing terror case a 2nd islamic state leader in 7 days has been detained and the country guitar is in the studio with us with more now take us through the story well ukraine has revealed that it's arrested a russian citizen who was on into polls most wanted list this happened on thursday in a city called digital media which is in the north west of the country let's take a really quick listen now to the reasons given behind his arrest. the man was
8:19 am
wanted by interpol for murder according to the information we have the detained person was a member of the terrorist organization islamic state in fact one of its leaders he lived on the territory of ukraine to escape responsibility for the murder. and what details do we have on that individual well actually fairly little at the moment all the information that we're getting is from the police authorities in the region where he was apprehended we know that he's called oh we don't have his full name and he's a 30 year old male from dr stone which is a republic. in the north caucasus give us a bit of context around this arrest well what's interesting to know is that the head of the operation said that this particular arrest was part of a wide to clear out of potentially dangerous individuals which by implication suggest that this is not a one off case and you can actually look to past events for confirmation of that
8:20 am
last friday for example ukrainian authorities announced that they had detained a georgia national guard goes by the name of. now he was a top eisel kamandi he fought alongside i sit in syria before escaping to ukraine via turkey last year and he is said to have coordinated terror attacks from his house not far from kiev now his arrest was part of a joint operation between georgia ukraine and the u.s. and it's interesting because it was off to his arrest the questions were raised about how it was possible that a man who was allegedly in the role of beisel deputy minister of war had remained unnoticed or at least untouched for a significant period of time not far from the country's capital and some talks not just about inability to cope with these high level terrorists but even its willingness to do so these critics have drawn attention to how certain
8:21 am
inefficiencies within ukrainian government have facilitated such dangerous individuals to slip the net they've drawn attention for example to the holes in the needle system and law enforcement to a very lively fake passport trade as. what is of course the endemic problem with corruption which has allowed the systematic abuses of power and just as a final note in terms of the white accomplice context outside of ukraine it's worth noting that this is not just an issue for the country itself but also for its neighbors we know that for 2 years ukraine has enjoyed a visa free regime with the e.u. and because of that could potentially if it continues to allow people to remain undisturbed on its territory could potentially be used as an ideal stepping stone for those who want to harm of the european nations so clearly a very worrying and significant issue but this arrest this latest arrest hopefully
8:22 am
a step in the right direction towards tackling the broader problem. breaking that down for us thank you oh. tens of thousands have taken to the streets in colombia's capital to protest against the right wing government of u.s. backed president iran decay what started as a largely peaceful march led to clashes with police. well i mean trade unions students opposition parties and the south american countries indigenous organizations challenging case i cannot mix social and security policies a festive atmosphere in the positon ugly when a small group of people began pulling projectiles at police responded with tear gas the popularity of right wing government and u.s. ally has been on the wane since as election in 2 months ago police say around $200000.00 people took part in protests in several cities nicholas o'donovan
8:23 am
reports. what started as a normal union strike has morphed into one of colombia's biggest anti-government protest in recent times tens of thousands of people. across the country and here on the streets of bogota at this point the rain thousands are still marching the gates the government to the city center everything from students to union leaders to community leaders and indigenous people protested as we say against. case government this strike was announced before the full the protests in other latin american countries like chile. people here telling us that they've been inspired by those movements 5000 police officers here we've also have members of the military but the government says that we can't say that colombia is militarized
8:24 am
because these soldiers just protected strategic buildings so that's the picture of the ground what about the reasons what spare hind this massive strike well it's a very differently to what happens in other latin american countries for instance and in chile we had the public transport in ecuador we had the subsidies. accounts here it's not a specific mission it's more of a wide range of actions being taken by the government that people here do not like it all started with a tax reform and an intention to reform the pension system but it's not only the neoliberal austerity measures this also the handling of the peace process or the failure in handling the peace process that has led more violence in the country recently we had 8 minus being killed in the government led attack and all of this.
8:25 am
has produced this state of discontent among colombians so as we say the protest is speed massive it's be mainly peaceful but it's sending a very clear message to paise government here in columbia nicholas donovan. daniel shaw a professor of latin american studies told us more about the roots of the mass protests the columbian masses this country of 40000000 compazine known sin workers and indigenous who are today marching in flying the y. follow flag in solidarity with the people of bolivia ecuador chile haiti everywhere that there are things not just to go up against the colombian state of iran they're up against the u.s. sponsored colombian state the 260 $5000000.00 in u.s. military aid that was sent this year under trump even more in past years with
8:26 am
colombia so we shouldn't forget that there's 9 u.s. military bases over a 1000 u.s. military soldiers stationed in colombia 12 u.s. military bases in panama with the way there's also protests scheduled for later today against the same you know liberal agenda so the colombian people are fighting back not just for their interests but for the interests of humble people across the world. that's a global news update for this hour those who are tuning in wherever you may be. i have concern about new technologies and i think society should and i and i try to
8:27 am
help them get engaged in those concerns. but we also should have concerns about doing nothing doing nothing is extraordinarily risky in a world with some point 5000000000 people and a whole series of of ancient technologies that are not necessarily suitable for tomorrow. was.
8:28 am

and violence against women he said the following. no man has a right to raise a hand to woman in anger other than in self defense and that's rarely ever occurs and so we have to just change the culture period and keep punching at it and punching out an intention and. punching at it and punching at it and punches. we're talking about violence against women joe. yes this new debate even featured yet another round of this year's now infamous gabbert versus the hair a side bar brawl when maris went after gabbers apparently while record voile record of talking to people she disagrees with it's unfortunate that we have someone on the stage who is attempting to be the democratic nominee for president the united states during the obama administration spends 4 years full time on fox news criticizing president obama that's already been sold and that's why it's very close
