30 minutes. from. its biggest strike in years. with workers protesting primarily against pension reform the country's transport systems. we know as well schools and hospitals are closed. are taking place. lots of. charlotte has been in the thick of the action for quite a while. particularly where you are in the french capital charlotte why so much. my way here class to have a big fan i can tell you. the crimes go all the way back more than
a close to god do nor which is where this process was originally due to start off with what was coming for many hours is turned to a huge tensions with clashes between the police and the protest as you might be able to hear some of those plus going off behind us that's tear gas that's being thrown into the protesters the taxes have set light to several parts of the streets around me including some of the electric scooters they've been bringing items to put on to the fire we saw a van. on fire and they got tear gas really coming quite close to us and you might get a sense of it just down that in fact my run of good luck in the protests has come to an end almost 3 years of covering them and today i finally managed to get hit by parts of a tear gas canister as it was coming down thankfully not injured just probably bruising not sore but as you can see just. chaos on the streets and i just want to
give you a sense of what's been happening over the last few hours here in paris. tensions rising here in paris you might be able to hear the tear gas that's being let off that's because just down the street you can see that there is a fire taking place here the tear gas has been disposed to try and move protesters away i'm from that fire it's unclear exactly what it is and fire but you can see the thick blotter plume of smoke just rising into the air people are trying to move away as that tear gas is being dispersed but this is an indication of just how i agree people are here in paris this is part of nationwide strikes taking place across france today these strikes are expected to be you actually can see there more tear gas. into the protesters shariah and move people away from the. samhain
so the point crews can get on with the job which is to try and put out that fire tension rising between the protesters and the police maces one of the round $250.00 strikes taking place across france today in relation to those changes that the french government wants to make to people's pensions they basically want to move 42 different pension systems down into one unified system saying that it will make it fairer and more just but people who are protesting today who are on strike say it won't make it more just in fact what it will mean is that they'll have to work longer and their pensions could be worth less in the end you can see the firefighters trying desperately to put out this fire at the moment as the tear gas is still coming down from the police i guess you get a sense of some of the damage that's being caused here by shelter here has been
smashed that's something we see quite regularly in the protests another fire taking place across the street actually as they're not just that big fire with a big plume of smoke but of course hey it really looks like in the last sort of 10 to 15 minutes all hell has broken loose have also been tensions elsewhere in france not just here tensions in places like. other cities across from reality is the people here are angry away seeing the palpable anger now on the streets this is a one day strike but people say it could go on much longer and could take over until the end of the year if it does that it will be much the strikes back in 1995 which were also against the pension reform tear gas is raining down and those crews are battling. battling you choose who you are going to. we're just going
to have to move now because you get screaming to come in by the stewardess and they're exploding very near to where we are so we're just going to try and head back to somewhere safe. on the streets of paris i know one is probably just as good into chaos. with a report let's move the program on russia luckly rejected germany's claims that it has not been cooperating with an investigation into the murder of a georgian national in berlin in august its foreign minister sergei lavrov told r.t. on thursday it appears moscow will again be blamed for a crime it was not involved in but the story. relations between moscow and bettina now going drastically downhill germany's unexpected decision to expel 2 russian embassy staffers on wednesday has left more scope fuming angela merkel complained russia didn't do enough to have ceased tame the investigation into the murder of
a georgia national back in august and now barely says there is real and sufficient indication that russia was behind it i asked russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov for his response in the city is going over russia and germany have special channels set up to tackle issues such as violations of the law we should use them they said we did not cooperate enough this is groundless some countries today recalled the tragedy of m.h. 17 my dutch counterpart said we didn't do enough then we supplied them with all the necessary information with data from our radars and so on we gave them everything where all the satellite images to us promised nobody answered that we asked them what kind of cooperation they want from us they responded by saying you have to confess you did it that would be corporative if germany wants to follow suit nothing good will come of it that's not a good way to deal with anyone and with russia in particular isn't him 100 was
a 40 year old georgia and citizen of chetan origin he was targeted in a berlin park on his way to a mosque with eyewitnesses saying he was shot in the head and chest by a man on a bicycle his murder was then dubbed by the media as scree paul 2.0 and the victim labeled as a kremlin opponent but who was the victim a right hand men to terrorists during the 2nd chechen war his role was to lead extremist groups in the caucasus and recruit spies and hunger shrill is reported paramilitary korea continued into 2012 when he is said to have assisted at georgian operation against his former comrades considered a terrorist by the. russian authorities he was also listed as a potential islam is threat for some time in germany too now various media outlets have published their own conclusions into his death the evidence includes 4 to comparisons and killing parton's of a man who had been in hiding from interpol and russia and the reporters suggesting
the wanted murderer was then hard by moscow chechnya to do it again the federal investigation in germany is just the beginning now on google merkel says she hopes russia will help the german investigators but it seems no matter who was behind it embassy expulsion indicates that the verdict has in fact already been given. power to reporting from europe. producer working for are to use a video agency was that this week's nato summit in london questioned all of the terrorism act ripley's chief content officer your go to reno over and over talk me through the details were of course very surprised when this happened as a media agency we're going to cover this 70th anniversary summit our producer was accredited for the summit which was confirmed to him via e-mail by organizes having
this in malik he went there on wednesday to pick up the pass just to go inside and film which is normal procedure for journalists. so he showed this acceptance email and his passport and they told him that he had to wait in the lobby at this point he was approached by a plain clothed mine who presented a police warrant and requested him. to wait for police questioning i believe we can now listen to our producer's own account of what happened i was approached by a number of police officers who requested my id and asked me to explain what i was doing i told them that i was a journalist waiting for my credit ration passed and i identified myself by giving them my passport press card and the accreditation approval letter the police then proceeded to detain me under the terrorism act they searched me and my belongings well after bad he was told that his accreditation had been revoked and then police
left like i said this came as a surprise to us because our producer has been covering events in the u.k. for a plea on many occasions including state events and other developments as an agency we do extensive coverage of things happening in the u.k. for example we were the only media organization that filmed julian assange when he was dragged out of the ecuadorian embassy in london last spring. as to this particular event in accordance where. accreditation procedure as they say in exceptional circumstances there is of the right to revoke accreditation even if it had been confirmed what kind of exceptional circumstances we're talking about here remains unclear to us we filed a formal request to the organization right after the incident requesting
clarification but we haven't had we haven't heard back from them yet was this type of incident a one off later 'd of it well i would say that we have no. ever experienced anything like this with nato as such but 2 years ago when 2017 were denied accreditation for a high level security conference called struck some it struck call is a strategic. communications center of excellence they're not part of nato as such but they are a nato accredited military organizations have their related. back to the organizers protests in an email that they were denying us accreditation because we are affiliated with the and they said they don't consider about a journalist organization so as for this week's summit to me a london i know the 2 reports says that we're working apparently without problems so we're waiting to see what the reason was for denying probably accreditation.
updated terms of service it will not be able to put limits on content raising fears the social media platform could apply so named shout about the affectively mean suppressing publicly posted content without the users knowledge that their posts are not visible to their followers no it's an accusation twitter has faced before but is the last reports that could become the norm from next year. twitter is coming out of the shadows remember all these media figures accusing these social platform of sneakily hiding their posts from their followers feeds what big brother hides from us what is referred to as shadow banking maybe even more pernicious if you're on the left maybe you're ok with this but if you're not on the left or even if you are and you revere the 1st amendment you should be concerned that's actually
been well substantiated vice news which is not a right wing outlet says that this is happening on a routine basis to a lot of folks on the right side of the aisle but almost never the people on the left side of the. aisle are people free speech that's what is. it is that you got to be balanced house leader kevin mccarthy wrote our chairman a letter and said hey this is going on and we think your committee should investigate it and how the twitter boss made a surprise and innocent face saying that oh no no no they're definitely not going behind anyone's backs to quietly hide their opinions twitter undertook no behavior to selectively censor conservative republicans or conservative voices on your platform is that correct correct. well apparently all those assurances were just a big pile of nonsense now for those of you not too tech savvy i'm talking about a thing called shadow banning to the shuttle banned user everything looks just fine
they can log into their account follow calm and like even post tweets but crucially their posts are simply not shown in other people's feeds even if they are subscribed to the user twitter had been adamantly denying that it does this until it slipped this one small change into their constitution we may also remove all refuse to distribute any content on the services ltd strip you sure visibility of any content on the service suspended terminate users and reclaim usernames without mobility to you it's a case where just a couple of words make all the difference the part about limiting tweet visibility was not in the previous edition of the document here it is nothing of the sort there and one can only wonder why twitter has decided to come clean all of a sudden perhaps because after all the outcry from the users wronged by the
platform that simply made no sense in denying it anymore or and maybe because the twitter star film had previously outright confessed to shadow banning already on hidden camera one. than someone who. knows what they want to share. there's even a lawsuit against twitter accusing it of discriminating against conservative voices by your employing its shadow banning tactic but now that it's in the terms of service some users will just have to accept that they are talking to themselves. it's not so much that twitter or facebook or any other social media platform have influence what they have is the power to promote certain people's opinion on d. promote tells the people's influence on twitter that is the critical thing and what
we need to do is have a fair platform we need to have a free and open discourse and we need to allow everybody to have a similar right to say what they've got to say i don't agree with absolutely everything that he said on twitter not even the conservative stuff that we're talking about but actually it shouldn't be for these big tech companies to decide all discourse all discussion all debates in our own country that is manifestly unfair and it's not a business decision actually it's a public utility and that's a critical point we've reached to twitter for comment on those shadow banning for years and we'll update you on any response we receive back in one minute.
the european union's tendency to believe that is and represents europe has long been a major gripe for russia but as the e.u. experiences significant internal difficulties it is studied to reassess what it is and what it stands for what does that process mean for the countries sharing the continent was. my feeling with this world it's what now is we're so confused and fearful and the certain generation that's controlling all the politics around the world when that generation. and children are brought off of this new. reality are less materialistic don't really care about these things concrete even more automobiles on the right the side job on a lot of bicycle this movement is global and it's going the world is going to have to go with the star action and it's going to change.
19 minutes into the program welcome back the head of the international olympic committee has bucked the findings of a world anti-doping agency poll over alleged tempered results in the moscow the forestry database russia how strongly denied the allegations after issuing its own technical investigation response well i'm joined in the studio by artie's matina caution for more on this media tell us about moscow's objections and indeed their own pro. well you know law school has indeed conducted an investigation and here are the details a group of russian technical experts have conducted their own investigation and rejected claims that moscow manipulated athletes test results in its laborious
database they claim that moscow has transferred all the information required to wada and never tampered with the results of the probe now it turned out that the database could have been altered by those who had admin access to the system and according to the experts those people would be the program developer and his team who actually back in 2015 fled to the united staes right as the doping scandal aska latest russian experts say that they were the ones who tempered because they had admin rights. russian experts have found that the developer of the limbs at the mosque mr me get you off and his colleague mr so believes ski had administrative access to the system as a result of the research the russian side has determined the database used to the mosque has been changed from time to time and after mr rajan of make
a choice of and so beletski fled to the u.s. the database had been in fact run via the internet from los angeles until june 26th . the situation changed in 2016 when it was revealed that such manipulations took place the russian agency was guarded and 2016 within you had of the department appointed but a problem seemingly still exist there are actually 2 copies of the database one that was given to wada in 2017 by an unknown whistleblower and the other one provided by the russian side in general this year and the group of experts now believes that it is essentially wrong to compare these 2 copies because of their different origins while the 29000 copy was produced following all the necessary technical requirements the other came from unknown digital front here after possibly being tampered with and that is backed by avid and found during the investigation conducted by the experts
a russian led criminal investigation has found a mechanism of deliberate tampering with the doping test results deeply integrated into the lymph system so what do we have now well despite numerous offer is coming from russia to create a united and independent investigation team into this matter what has been either avoiding or even rejecting these attempts russian experts explain why they think this happened. in this case we think that during its probe what is intelligence and investigations department tried by all means not to undermine trust in the information provided by the whistleblower in the conclusions made by mr mclaren and now a final decision on the case will be made on december the 9th in paris russia could now face a 4 year barren from hosting major sports competitions and clean athletes made to
compete under neutral flak. 10 years ago today the summer the 5th tragedy struck in the russian city of perm a deadly fire ripped through unlikely leaving 156 people dead as russia commemorates the horrific incident we spoke to one of the many families still suffering from the loss. because at that time the state asked alice what is it. yes favorite it becomes. sort of i. could just get. something good.

i'll be down this cold day i die and i hope not i hope i have to spend my days going to save dogs and you know you can't save and then you ride by barns and you look. these are dogs are. sad. tara loud to do this to these dogs. i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold air the rain the snow the thunder nothing they have no protection yet as soon as we take the dog and you just watch the case. just you know wants the affection. to get you. know it's ok. to have a. mom
and dad will probably live their entire lives on that facility in a pin whether it's smaller or larger size but they're not themselves hence they are breeding stock they they typically don't come in the house and snuggle on the couch. they have no idea what life is is about because they spend 247 in
a cage when you came into one of the puppy mills you would just see. one on top of another in these little chicken wire crates. you know how cramped it is when you when you're flying and i was thinking about and i thought it must be like that for the puppy mill dogs that are in these cages being able to get up and move around and i think that's the 740 seven's comedy 400 people and i thought it's just like taking 400 golden traverse or labs or shepherds and putting them in a sea shore up in the men and making them live there for 8 years you will typically smell the facility before you actually walk near the cages and as soon as you can see the cages. i know it's going to be a bad situation when you have the above ground wire bottom cage because that sort of tells us that the person is trying to be very efficient. this is a business people are not from prague.
