media. says the public. are looking at the way the democrats handled these hearings and say hey this isn't quite right now people. so. this wednesday 27 of. thanks for joining us for this update. first the delegates at this week's international chemical weapons watchdog. over a new body that will be able to assign blame for toxic attacks several countries are threatening to block funding the jury when. as these budget vote if it does
include provision for the new fault finding team previously the o.p.c. w. could only say whether or not a chemical attack had taken place next is a senior correspondent reports even that mandates in question after leaks from whistleblowers. u.p.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 apolitical it was past simple.
it's highly likely that russia was responsible to the old russia. culpable for the attempted murder. 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. w. to get back to where it was before wasn't enough for the u.p.c. w. to present facts some wanted opinion to political opinion they wanted to give the
u.p.c. w. alternate power to blame the sentence and condemn nations we look forward to receiving the 1st reports in the near future it will then be for us . to decide. to respond to the i to you is a crucial in this to siri means of identifying the pip the trade is behind these horrific attacks we cannot accept impunity for these horrible crimes 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 we also refused to fund in. this team and refused to grant access to a war. confidential documents provided to the office w. and a security council and therefore reject any reports issued by this team i reiterate india's principle. to the are to be submitted as a group to the manner in which it was set up and didn't disappear god 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 judge's mallet multiple o.p.c. w. insiders have sparked a 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 suggest that there is a high probability that both cylinders will 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 his then the 2nd whistle blower struck a veteran who was on the ground in syria connecting some poles and he went one better or 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
in 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. find the 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 gotten the blame accuse and condemn nations and governments to be the excuse that spock's was to give that power to new organization which doesn't even have the trust of its own employees former british ambassador to syria peter ford
believes it's dangerous to give the o.p.c. w. blame giving powers because the organizations become highly politicized over the is . and then they got the lesson of the crisis of confidence in we the c.w. which do not even capable of mounting a reliable investigation of whether a chemical attack occurred in the room are after all let alone a fine response with the national organization 'd that we have dominated by one country a year after them by the west generally is not capable of delivering an object their verdict in any investigation within 3 days that the alleged incident the us france and the u.k. had bombed syria without waiting for any investigation they needed. with you to justify the fact i backed that illegal
bombing of syria and so it goes on if you didn't see it just tip you off chooses watching the hawks was very much across states if you want to watch it a lot online snotty dot com except for a turban should discuss the latest whistleblower leak with our to america correspondent rachel blevins. now the timing of this release is really notable because this comes as the o.p.c. w. is having their annual conference while 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 concerned 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 it or pay. for the health and developing transparency protesters have gathered in the french city of rule exactly 2 months after a massive devastating fire engulfed a controversial chemical factory in the area he goes don't know when to see firsthand the latest. we're walking with a crowd over it looks like a 100 maybe a bit more i can't really see all the way to the end of this call him 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 the chemical just simply because of breathing the contaminated app 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 pass 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. removed through the surgery to switch sides we want the truth to be revealed about what happened in the loopers over accidents because now everyone's just passing the buck and no one wants to take responsibility for its the truth about the accident has not been established just today we should have health monitoring which we currently don't we . denied more extensive blood tests we expect resignations over this age where 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 crop 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 at that lubrizol plant. store if you kaino a critically acclaimed movie about london gang warfare has seen its violent themes literally spill out beyond the screens of british cinema was one leading change now banned showings of blue story but that's led to the company being branded institutionally racist blue story centers on the lives of 2 young friends who become embroiled in gang life. from dept of health where you will be right in with my running mate jason i remember. before when he sometimes says don't wish to be rude but you britain's 3rd biggest cinema chain view cinemas responded after a brawl last friday at one of its venues in the city of birmingham several police officers were injured after around 100 youths some armed with machetes began
causing trouble all at least 2 major cinema chains recorded dozens of what they describe as significant incidents since blue story hit theaters while view cinemas has pulled the movie completely to where the chains say they are in handling security at screenings instead to try to protect people from any future issues if you cinemas took the step it says to drop the film because its venues witnessed 25 incidents within 24 hours of the release a few says its decision came after careful consideration but was to ensure the safety of its staff and customers it denies the move is a race issue but that said it's nonetheless facing claims of suppressing black art while the movie's director insists his films about love not violence conservative radio host dave perkins and london social activists leave just be shared their reactions about what's going on here this last week or so. the way didn't so all sorts of fail right across so well almost every day those films to no end up getting banned. culture is under constant attack grime music now they say now
black failings whatever we're doing it even in the areas where we have fabulous they successful we still don't they scape a bit to 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 would then 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 this. 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 level of confidence or even certainty that violence is going to happen so i want to clarify it like that in a since 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
a glorifies the 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 from russia broke us around the world great says that you know with this let me tell you what's coming up on this wednesday the own line poaches 10 game keepers google and facebook are among the tech tell us signing up to the major project to clean up the web despite codes being involved in some of the internet's biggest privacy violations as we report right after this break.
seems wrong. but i. just don't. get to see palin just. as a kid and engagement equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know world a big part of the lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the bad 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.
again the man who invented the world wide web wants to save the internet no less a tim berners lee has a valid a plan to prevent humanity from sliding into a digital dystopia and there's the backing for the likes of google and facebook too to boot but our correspondent donald quarter questions next whether if 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 they're all throwing their support behind respect and protect people's privacy personal data and other online data rights to build online 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 develop technologies that support the best in humanity and challenge 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 our 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 sidelined. there will be some global actors who will never back the contract principles just as they flout other global agreements but we know we will have succeeded when those governments and companies are true outliers if google facebook and others want to be able to prove that they've changed then they are going to need to adhere to the principles set out in
this particular initiative if a company is found to have been obviously breaching this accord how do you react do you strike the most of mediately one of the sanctions against them and how serious is a measure need to do before any measures to be taken against for them to be a jetted from this particular group very little in this is actually been defiant one has to be a little bit wary if companies are signing up to this a body simply by the letter of the law only to the extent they can get away with it then that would be a major concern. the term patient investigations entering a new phase and a step closer to a vote on whether or not to impeach the president the us house judiciary committee is set to hold its 1st hearing next wednesday and it's invited donald trump along too or told him to stop moaning about it he said on twitter he'd love his council including secretary of state might pompei are to testify to while calling it all a democrat scam either way it's getting the washington press pack fired up of
course president's own pentagon and his own security staff detailed a plot to extort for help to cheat in the reelection campaign the worst day with the most damning evidence for president trump in this impeachment inquiry that was driven by the president's personal political error and his interests so is the hearing heads to the next stage former u.s. congressman ron paul thinks that what's happening right now is not proving positive for either the republicans or the democrat. i've always said that when you want to tell the truth in an empire are 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 on necessary 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 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 handle 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 it's 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 fact the sentiment right now seems to be shifting away from the idea that 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 shit cannery 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 rome polled so can live to see international to recount the impeachment saga kicked off in september when a whistleblower alleged president abused his office during a phone call with ukrainian leader it's. centered on trump's efforts to get the authorities in kiev to investigate former democrat vice president joe biden sons senior role in the ukrainian gas company it's alleged trump pressured ukraine to investigate his political rivals by threatening to withhold u.s. military aid donald trump denies any wrongdoing. without thought that's where these are looking for moscow so far this wednesday i can tell across those coming right up keep up to date with all the news from us tonight he dot com facebook you tube
