wife marty's world news center in moscow very good morning then wednesday the 27th of november just 10 10 am here my name is kevin and hope you stick with me for the next 25 minutes or so 1st then delegates at this week's international chemical weapons watchdog conference sort of odd smoke for a new body that will be able to assign blame for toxic attacks several countries are threatening to block funding during wednesday's budget vote if it includes provision for the new fault finding team previously the o.p.c. w. could only say whether or not a chemical attack in taken place but is more a guarantee of a senior correspondent reports next even that mandates in question after leaks from whistleblowers. u.b.c. w. was all that stood between humanity and the terrible terrible curse of chemical weapons they did this by never taking sides they never assigned blame they came they analyzed and reported not what they thought but what they knew not who but what there was never any reason not to trust that you can't argue with pure science
it was utterly impartial objective a political it was passed simple. immediately after this tragic incident russia submitted a draft decision promoting an immediate dispatch of international experts to come she couldn't and the chirac airbase with the sharon used in country could was allegedly stored. however this draft decision was unanimously blocked by the western group of countries under flimsy pretext. is highly likely that russia was responsible to the whole russia culpable culpable
culpable for the attempted murder is kate is culpable. it was always a technical organ where consensus prevailed. and now we see that it is completely politicized with a politicized agenda from various parties we want the o.p.c. dubey to get back to where it was before. wasn't enough for the o.p.c. w. to present facts some wanted opinion to political opinion they wanted to give the o.p.c. w.
all that much power to blame the sentence and condemn nations. other nations are putting their foot down why they are would you want to destroy the essence of what made the u.p.c. w. so special so trustworthy and are you doing this in the interests of humanity or for your own personal ambitions as we know this whole attribution mechanism adventure was started to put pressure on damascus a number of these missions investigations including the last one which made headlines the incident in duma on the 7th of april 28th have convinced us that we
cannot take the special missions conclusions at face value. to a world they didn't confidential documents are provided to the office w. and a security council and therefore reject any reports issued by this team i reiterate in the us. there's a due to the manner in which it was set up and didn't disagree out of india's concerns on the substance as the less the process they couldn't have picked a worse time to. give the u.p.c. w.-a judges my list multiple o.p.c. w. insiders of spock's the huge scandal alleging that the organization cherry picked the facts on the alleged chemical attack in syria last year to suit a political agenda. after passing through the
ceiling and impacting the floor at lower speed the cylinder continued in altered trajectory until reaching the position in which it was found the 1st whistle blower said that the gas canisters used in the attack were likely placed at the scene rather than dropped from the air. observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggests that there is a high probability that both cylinders were money placed it there is 2 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft u.p.c. w excuse that self by saying that it took into account other reports not just haze then the 2nd whistle blower struck a veteran who was on the ground in syria collecting samples and he went one better worse the squad big political pressure secrecy and potential fraud. most of the duma team failed to see reports on the instant the interim report and
the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent all he wanted was a little transparency to be able to speak at this conference where the vote is taking place to set things straight all he got was a letter from management telling him no i would like to read. reached by finding mission. at the end of the day every country in that room is going to have to decide for themselves whether to let the u.p.c. w. play gordon to blame accuse and condemn nations and governments to be the excuse that sparks wars to give that power tool an organization which doesn't even have the trust of its own employees more galatea of reporting there former british
ambassador to syria peter ford believes it's dangerous to give the o.p.c. w. blame giving power because the organizations become highly politicized. and then they got the lesson of the crisis of confidence in we see b.w. which do not even capable of mounting a reliable investigation of whether a chemical attack occurred in your not at all let alone a fine with the national organization 'd that we have dominated by one country you add them by the west generally is not capable of liberating an object their verdict in any investigation within 3 days with the alleged incident the us france and the u.k. had bombed syria without waiting for any investigation they needed the opi w.
to justify the fact i backed that illegal bombing of syria and so it goes on to just let you know and chooses watching the whole switching much alone if you hadn't seen already want to catch a turban sure discussed the latest whistleblower leak with out to america correspondent rachel blevins in more detail. now the timing of this release is really notable because this comes as the o.p.c. w. is having their annual conference well the western officials that have spoken out according to reports have actually placed the blame here on russia and syria once again and they have said that this is an attempt by the governments from both countries to sort of muddy the waters where this is concert and they claim that that's because russia and syria have been asking questions about these claims of reported chemical attack from the very beginning we also have to remember here that of course because the u.s. the u.k. and france were the ones to launch air strikes against syria just one week after reports of this attack they have a lot to lose here so they're not going to be nearly as quick to admit that they
were wrong where all of this is concerned as of something to keep in mind especially because it puts them in a bad light if they come out and they suddenly say wait a 2nd there may be problems with this resource you know how dare anyone ever questions about what happens we just have to take their word for. hearing for the health and demanding transparency we're talking about protesters negative gathered in the french city of rule exactly 2 months through devastating fire engulfed a culture of emotional chemical factory in the area a corresponding goes down of when to take a look at what's been happening. well walking with a crowd over it looks like a 100 maybe a bit more time when you see all the way to the end of this call them through on and indeed there are concerned people from all really the whole society spectrum is here all of them are indeed demanding transparency from the government and from lubrizol the company the chemical plant that while of that released all these
chemicals into into the atmosphere some 2 months ago. many of the locals complained about the burning sensation in their throat for instance or about feeling nauseous after the release of a chemical just simply because of breathing the contaminated air and they're accusing the government of failing to release the air samples they which were taken right after the fire and the government's position on lubrizol is position has been that while there was no immediate health threat that all of those effects would cause and that there was no environmental impact but people here are not buying this i found this in my garden and every day i can find it it comes from the lubrizol. fire and so my children's doesn't go in the garden so that's that's
why i am i am very very angry and i created this this exhibit to show that we are boring about people who we money and how our life are becoming like that. through these other 3 this was right we want the truth to be revealed about what happened in the loop or zoe accident because now everyone's just passing the buck no one wants to take responsibility and the truth about the accident has not been established today we should have health monitoring which we currently don't we. denied more extensive blood tests we expect resignations over this. people are concerned about their health but it wasn't just about that local businesses local farmers suffered immensely for instance some 1800 farmers who were banned from harvesting their own crops by the french government because all of that well because because of the fears of contamination so you can clearly see why
people here are demanding more transparency and they want an in-depth look as to what's going on that lubrizol plant. to british cinema chains are being branded institutionally racist after dropping a gang themed movie over security issues blue story centers on the lives of 2 young friends who become embroiled in a violent london street war. from death row where you will be riding with my dragon it takes me remember. if a woman in the town has to be rude what you call the cinema change responded after a brawl at a value in the city of burning a few days ago during a screening of said movie several police officers were injured after around $100.00 youths some armed with machetes began causing trouble. that a venue operated by britain's 3rd biggest chain view cinemas which immediately pulled blue story from its screens for its part it denied the movie's
a race issue here saying the film had been connected with in fact 25 what they described as significant incidents at 16 cinemas during its opening weekend but there's been a backlash against you which is accused of suppressing black art the movie's director also criticised the move insisting his film is about love not violence conservative radio host dave perkins and london social activist lee just shared their thoughts about what's happened. way to didn't so all sorts of fail right across so well almost every day those films do you know and getting banned. culture is under constant attack grime music now they say now black failings whatever we're doing even in the areas where we have fabulous they successful we still don't escape the bitter criticism why don't we just assess all asia and to tame and activities in britain in relation to the hot coals because football at least people
in should movies in a cinema if we could think of thousands of types of activities that take place where serious crime and criminality is much more in excess than we witness over the . us so let's treat everybody on an equal playing field i don't think it's possible for the movie to cause violence i think it's possible for the movie to set the foundation for violence and then predict with some levels of confidence or even certainty that violence is going to happen so i want to clarify it like that in a sense in the sense that all movies do when they're about a cultural feature it glorifies the business of being in a gang that doesn't mean it glorifies violence per se but people involved in gangs do have a considerably higher rate of violence than people who aren't involved in gangs and here's the thing when you draw them all to a place at night a whole bunch of young people together with a very high degree of involvement of one form or another in gangs that's why they come to see the movie because it glorifies the culture that they're in the
likelihood of something terrible happening is very high life for russia around the world this wednesday morning is coming at 1017 moscow time good morning on the way to the own line poaches 10 game keepers google and facebook now are among the tech titans signing up to a major project to clean up the web despite being involved in some of the internet's biggest privacy violations as we report right after this break.
we talked about on the show he read the financial press about the latest scandal it's just a new name for a recurring scandal like there's only 3 or 4 ways you can rip people off changes is the name they call to rip people off. the man who invented the world 'd wide web wants to save the internet sit tim
berners lee scott plans to prevent humanity from sliding into a digital dystopia apparently backing for the likes of google and facebook too but our correspondent john mcwhorter questions next whether those same companies should have a role in it given a series of scandals. privacy breaches censorship fake news with all the controversy surrounding the internet these days it's easy for people to feel pessimistic and now we have good reason to be the founding father of the internet itself is back in the public eye creator of the world wide web in 1909 tim berners lee is a bit concerned if we leave the web as it is there's a very large number of things that will go wrong we could end up with a digital dystopia if we don't turn things around. but fear not he's unveiled a 9 point plan to fix it it's called the contract for the web intended to prevent that digital dystopia he mentioned so there shouldn't be anything to worry about
especially when big names like google facebook and microsoft have all publicly back to the contract even a handful of governments have joined in approval so what exactly are the principles there all throwing their support behind respect and protect people's privacy personal data and other own line data rights to build on line trust respecting people's privacy surely no one can disagree with that definitely not facebook after the cambridge analytical scandal remember that using an app that the social media giant knew about cambridge analytical harvested personal data from millions of facebook profiles without their consent and for the purpose of political advertisement surely facebook supports that principle here's the next one we will have succeeded when a critical mass of governments and companies have put the right laws regulations and policies in place to create an open and empowering web for all government regulation ok but take
a look at who is working on it the french government which recently began demanding information from facebook about people who are accused of spreading hate speech and the german government which approved a bill to find social media for failing to censor what it considers hate speech or fake news let's see what else the contract says develop technologies that support the best in humanity and the worst so the web really is a public good that puts people 1st putting people 1st is easier said than done especially when companies like google and facebook are supposed to lead the charge they are the all of arks of private information online accused of ignoring human rights for the sake of profits by amnesty international and if you don't support the principles they do well prepared to be sought. and there will be some global actors who will never back the contracts principles just as they florida other global agreements but we know will have succeeded when those governments and
companies are true of lawyers if google facebook and others want to be able to prove that they've changed then they're going to need to adhere to the principle set out to particular initiative and one of the issues here is the fact that there is limited information disclosure so that if companies are behaving badly they could always stonewall you would prevent you having information about aig and the lack of enforcement is a major issue if a company is found to have been obviously breaching this record how do you react do you strike a lot of mediately one of the sanctions against them and how serious is a measure need to delete or any measures to be taken against for them to be a jetted from this particular group very little in this is actually being defiant one has to be a little bit wary if companies are signing up to this simply by the letter of the law only to the extent they can get away with that that would be
a major concern. but trump impatient investigations are entering a new phase and a step closer to a vote then on whether or not to impeach the president the us house judiciary committee will hold its 1st hearing next wednesday and now it's invited donald trump along he said on twitter he'd love his council including secretary of state mike pompei or to testify to while calling it a democrat scam either way it's getting the washington press pack as you would expect fired up. president's own pentagon and his own security staff detailed a plot to extort foreign help to cheat in the reelection campaign the worst day with the most damning evidence for president trump in the impeachment inquiry that was driven by the president's personal political error and his interests so as they hearing heads to the next stage for me it was congressman ron paul thinks that what's happening right now is not proving positive for either the republicans or the democrats he speaks to us. i've always said that when you want to tell the
truth in an amp hour it becomes treasonous and i think a lot of what we're doing our government is doing right now it's all fake as lot of the lying and innuendos trying to figure out what's going on but i don't think it's been very positive for republicans or democrats and i think so unnecessary i think it's actually what they're doing is they're distracting from some of the problems i think they should be dealing with as most people now understand exactly what's going on and i think these hearings were a benefit to trump because i think more people in this country are looking at the way that democrats handled these hearings and say hey this isn't quite fair this isn't right so i think that's why there's less enthusiasm for impeachment now than it was a week or so ago the impeachment could be passed and then is going to be squelched in the senate and right now people are sick and tired of this so i think the
democrats are in a bind on what to do about this matter of fact the sentiment right now seems to be shifting away from the idea. that the impeachment is going to come and then there's going to be a long trial in the senate you know i think foreign policy is important and in the past i've talked about ukraine i don't like the idea that we were involved with. ukraine a couple years ago so i don't think would deal with those kind of problems and this is a lot of grandstanding and political chicanery going on between the 2 political parties and i wish both parties would get together and start talking about a more sensible foreign policy and i course support the position that we should be a lot less involved in the internal affairs reporter disputes anywhere around the world. the piece was kicked off in september when it was so blower alleged president trying to be used his office during a phone call with the ukrainian leader it since it will introduce efforts to get
the authorities in kid. to investigate former democrat vice president joe biden's sons senior role of the ukrainian gas company its alleged pressured ukraine to investigate his political rivals indeed by threatening to withhold u.s. military aid donald trump denies any wrongdoing. it's 26 past 10 this wednesday morning what are you doing today hope your day goes good keep r.t. by your side whether a facebook page a social media r.t. dot com take your pick it's kevin owen here as ever saying thank you so much for watching and have a great day and by the way if you can stick around the watching the hawks team here after the break. imagine a powerful and strangle style and then you have the records set and what we have done is to try and identify something like that happening in the brain where the expression of the ripples corresponds to the depths of your consciousness.

ratings and salutations as we near the most celebrated annual event on corporate capitalism is your early calendar the aptly named black friday corporate america is not just jumping for joy over consumerism is favorite holiday but also the brand new stocking stuffer that they got into that was dropped into the 2020 presidential elections of course i'm talking about mr bloomberg news themselves the billionaire media and business mogul and former mayor of new york city michael bloomberg announced his run for president as recently as last weekend in a statement bloomberg declared i'm running for president to defeat donald trump and
rebuild america if he wins another term in office we may never recover from the damage. yes once again it's all about donald trump not our crumbling infrastructure not ending the endless wars not picturing our education system just the standard rallying cry on the existential threat that is us president donald trump and that apparently is the only reason why we have yet another geriatric political leader running for president bloomberg clocks in that the young age of 77 years old naturally the former new york mayor's announcement is not without controversy not only stemming from his decision making as mayor but also from the progressive wing of the democratic party who wonder if it's really trump bloomberg trump bloomberg is targeting in 2020 and monday bernie sanders speech writer david sirota wrote bloomberg is primarily motivated by a desire to stop bernie in his working class movement you know out to get bernie or not out to.
