it's like. again telling you that. our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history to fame our heroes. to mark independence day donald trump taking aim at people who want money was destroyed as part of the intensified anti racism campaign. to be flayed to the moralized of a call to defund the american police struggling with a battered reputation with an overwhelming majority now saying they never want their children to become officers. socializing and distancing bars restaurants and . open their doors after months of law the prime minister appeals to the pent up public though to go easy.
hello thanks want to go to the weekend just turned 4 pm here in russia kevin oh my i'm here for the next 30 minutes for the latest my world news h.q. moscow saw it with us that is mentioned overlooks post-presidential predecessors at mount rushmore donald trump took aim at people wanting to ted monuments in an address on the eve of independence day this year's 4th of july celebrations come with a backdrop of weeks of anti racism protests which is seeing demonstrators seek to remove or destroy statues linked to slavery along with symbols of the civil war confederacy which are indelibly linked to that era. our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history defame our heroes a race of values and indoctrinate our children angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders to face our most sacred memorials and
unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities a few hours before that address those the standoff between the national guard and protest is led by native american activists more than 100 blocking the road leading to the trump a vent riot police shot smoke shells at their feet and used pepper spray but 15 protesters were arrested as the deadline set from belief passed so this year there are likely to be a few mixed emotions then as americans mark their history and it perhaps means new questions over traditional symbols more on that from donald cortez. the 4th of july is a time for barbecues fireworks and of course the american flag a time when americans are exceptionally proud to be well american and for decades leaders have used the occasion to proclaim that their part of the greatest country around america is the greatest country in human history. that america is
the greatest country on the face of the earth but this year people apparently are not buying it recent polls suggest only 17 percent of americans can confidently say that they're proud of the current state of their homeland and who can blame them this year's 4th of july falls on a day when economic recession a global pandemic and nationwide protests against institutionalized racism all plague the country the us desperately need solutions and the people desperately need a holiday but for some criticizing july 4th symbols of patriotism seems to be on the top of the agenda. many are calling to switch the national anthem from the star spangled banner to america the beautiful supporters of the change say that the current anthem is racist since its composer own slaves and some of its original lyrics were no doubt outrageously bigoted but most americans rarely ever made that association in the 1st place.
flying the flag on independence day has been as american as apple pie for as long as memory serves but this summer the stars and stripes are feeling the heat thank you. thank you. over a 1000000 means even signed a petition to replace the flag with this version of america's most patriotic symbol of course it was. likely not intended to be taken seriously but the sentiment remains. the founding fathers another icon americans can easily identify with they declared that all men are created equal and endowed with unalienable rights but in 2020 many have been more concerned
with their slave owning past and the statues built in their name have come under assault because of it washington parks the monument to its namesake is just the latest in the city to get painted over there in baltimore at the george washington memorial and statue of drill park you can see how it's been burned allies with red paint on the words destroyed races another statue in portland has been taken down by protesters this time george washington video and social media also shows them lighting it on fire america's latest on rest against police brutality is not the 1st time we've seen how a country's past can influence the president in a negative way but will attacking national symbols that serve to unite americans on independence day fix those problems or will they serve to further divide a nation that seems to be ripping apart at the seams it very well could end up being dangerous i mean we could see us going back to things that we don't want to go back to it could see us forgetting about things that we don't want to forget about you know maybe statues and and different types of symbols that might need to
be removed but if we leave it up to the look it will go basically it will go crazy i mean because we've got people on the left who are trying to tear down abraham lincoln and other members of the union so it's not just the confederacy some of them are just seeking to to cause damage and destruction our nation has been very divided over the past 3 or 4 or 5 years or so it's been a lot of those that are next it's been a lot of the fringes fighting in the loudest on each side you know excoriated so it has caused a divide and i think it will take some time to get back to a sense of normalcy and to mend the rips that's been formed me tom this next for the 2nd night in 3 days police in portland to the state of oregon have declared protests there to be a riot. her as per the latest one there how dreamy peaceful through the night until
a group of protesters set fire to some wood outside the justice center police say several people started fires threw rocks and then launched projectiles with sling shots at offices and talk of officers of the police the reputation of american police has taken a major blow of course over the past month with calls to defund or disband forces and is hitting morale may be non surprisingly a recent survey of officers has found that a staggering 80 percent would not encourage their children to enter a career in law enforcement only 7.5 percent said they would some of the main reasons listed for that include a lack of support from bosses an overall lack of respect for the profession and concerns for officer safety but all that said however ray lewis is a retired philadelphia police captain who says he would recommend joining the police now and here's why. officers that are not encouraging young people to go into law enforcement are those officers who are afraid of accountability. they fear
being held to the high standards of the job and so far they've had free reign they've been able to do what they want when they want and now that's and it right there is no respect and there should not be until it's earned ice there of 19 of my years in the belly of the beast in the ghetto socio economically depressed black areas and that historically these people have seen and heard a police brutality be there in them their family their names we've heard their relatives it was a late night there's been police brutality since day one but never and now what i consider one of the greatest inventions ever is the video cell phone white america is waking up because now all that they heard all their life is being contradicted by what they see i would absolutely encourage anybody to join the police force
because it's a changing police force now the new police force forces are going to be held much more accountable to be responsible to their communities and there is no more rewarding job. there a police officer. for the 1st time in months people in england can now meet up for a drink eat or go to the movies after the government began lifting some of the coronavirus lockdown restrictions people can also get their hair cut as well though for the 1st time since march who well the 1st professional cut that is all those home horrors laws restoral cinemas no other public places were allowed to open at midnight bars or wait until 6 in the morning a few customers were even up the bright and early for a boozy breakfast all the newly reopened businesses must adhere to the rules of masks and physical distancing though which has been reduced from 2 metres to one
metre plus some couldn't wait though check this police trying to break up this illegal street party in west london on friday night there's been a few of late officers had to run for it though off the crowds chased them off pelting them with bricks and bottles 7 officers were hurt trying to do their job their very mine prime minister boris johnson encouraged people to start getting out to support hospitality businesses they're the ones that have been hit so very hard but also to be careful dr i'm only succeeded in controlling the virus because everyone worked together. and we will only succeed in reopening if everyone works together again because we're not out of the woods yet but i will certainly buy and drink a pint but not a yard and i really do need to repeat the message to everybody this is a big turning point for us we've got to get it right let's let's work together and
enjoy some safety is at the right time to all for how to look at early term going on there are certain areas where you've got to hold yes the communities from as little. different my concern is. also on the fact. that decision to books has been done on a saturday. without any thought given to hold the emergency services to look. things on saturday. won't quit we not have tried to have a pilot one of the few of us to see how old things were reacting with the already or well meaning both of the social distancing measures but looking 2nd has always been on the cards and the recent below it is that even with the best estimates we suspect that anything between 80 to 90 percent thought pollution of the united kingdom has not been exposed to cook that we can't just what we're going to.
go back to all of. this is normal but you know that it's a big risk. nigeria says it's saddened that 2 sculptures it says belong to the country's igbo community been auctioned off in paris the country men telling of stolen during the 1960 civil war but the auction house christie's insists no the sale early this week was legitimate. these objects being lawfully sold having been publicly exhibited and previously sold over the last decades prior to christie's involvement the curator of nigeria's national museum than saying the work should be repatriated in compensation should be paid he also appealed to other auction houses to stop sales of artifacts suspected of being looted during the war evoking the black lives matter movement a petition to try and stop the christie's auction said that racial injustice applies not only to the black body but also to black culture and identity said the cell went ahead anyway the 2 wooden figures selling for nearly a quarter of
a $1000000.00 a member of nigeria's national commission for museums told us there's no doubt that art dealers have pocketed trophies of war these cultures that i was a particularly interested it were taking in $6869.00 while there was a civil war going on in a chair and these were stolen from their original owners and shipped across the border. where the european. where waiting for that and pretty much what christie's was seen is that it was not european dealers all the objects from the original owners are there they're free to sober you know their words it all came to sell the west a little by someone else this is basically what they're wearing and i think that is rum i don't think that that can be sourced in any legal proceeding.
chinese media is zeroing in on washington's top diplomat for filing tensions between china and india sec restate my pompei a lot in india for banning dozens of chinese mobile apps made a simmering territorial row that reached a deadly paper last month. we welcome india's ban on certain mobile apps that can serve as an appendage of the c.c.p. surveillance state india's clean apple approach will boost india's sovereignty. to also boost india's integrity and national security as the indian government sell itself has stated acting like a cheerleader the us is guaranteed india with no real investment but inspiring lip service it will not benefit india's development if the countries captivated by empty talk anyone with the signing eyes can easily tell what pompei or who keep spreading lies and misleading the public intended to do was nothing but grab every possible chance to fan the flames of hatred against china. pompous remarks came
after india banned the citing national security concerns tensions between the 2 countries reached a head last month as mentioned when 20 indian soldiers were killed in a brutal clash with chinese troops in disputed border territory and there's also anger too in india of a claims that china is flooding the country with cheap imports something the government describes as unfair competition so having faced strong pressure over how best to try to respond to what india sees as chinese incursions into him prime minister narendra modi paid tribute to the killed soldiers during a surprise visit to that disputed area but china are warning to its neighbor against making a strategic miscalculation and for the 2 to work together for the sake of stability chinese international relations expert vic to go told us washington right now is exploiting these tensions. and our right now has a border problem with india that's a fact but other countries especially the united states army superpower
militarily speaking the world should avoid getting involved should avoid taking one side against each other the united states seems to be very delighted for the tension the g. existed between china and india and even seems to be very eager to see the tensions further escalate it will be a very misguided strategy for the united states to provoke a higher level of tension between china and india china and india share a border of more than 3000 to kilometers and both china and india need to stand very firm 7 for peace and stability rather then being pulled into a war against each other goes a lot potentially at stake there thanks for watching us by the way this weekend there's more to come if you can stick around after the break from our to international after breck's it will italy be next out of the door. public feeling
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this on off spearing dramatic development the only really i'm going to resist i'll see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. again here russia's overhauled constitution is now in effect following the weeklong vote that wrapped up on wednesday the majority of voters indorse the changes with some 78 percent in favor from a turnout of around 68 percent the bulk of promised amendments concerns social legal and economic guarantees the package also redefined eligibility for the
presidency restricting future leaders to serving only 2 terms maximum the most contentious moment those the resetting of the dream of putin's terms allowing him the possibility to run for another 2 terms if indeed of the day chooses to do so. facebook's admitted letting 3rd party developers improperly access users' postal data again the company's repeatedly promised to clean up its act but thousands of ups of nonetheless continued gathering uses data long after they stopped using them jacqueline who connects them looking into why the social media giant apparently isn't learning from his past mistakes. facebook might want to go ahead and make their motto sorry about that just to save us all some time it will come as a surprise to no one that there is once again it been a privacy breach the book this time it's nothing earth shattering but the company does estimate around 5000 developers were able to gather information on users long after they were meant to in 2018 we announced it would automatically expire and
apps ability to receive any updates to this information if our systems didn't recognize the person as having used the app within the last 90 days the recently we discovered that in some instances apps continue to receive the data we fix the issue today after we found it that was also mentioned multiple times in the blog post that users did initially give permission for their info to be collected so it's not only the company's fault that they didn't cut it off like they promised right and you do have to give facebook credit for trying to be more proactive about these issues but how many more apologies are people meant to accept this was a major breach of trust we didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake it was my mistake and i'm sorry and i'm sorry for it but i'm sorry and i'm really sorry that this happened apparently sorry doesn't seem to be the hardest work plus there were these ads bought in major u.s. and u.k.
newspapers that said things like we have a responsibility to protect your information if we can't we don't deserve it the irony about that was all among the cambridge analytical scandal when there was an estimated 50000000 users that. had there information that we weren't up for profit now after that about a year later as dr bird tried to turn things around by announcing his vision for a privacy focused social media experience i believe we should be working towards a world where people can speak privately and live freely knowing that their information will only be seen by who they want to see it and won't all stick around for ever if we can help move the world in this direction i will be proud of the difference we have me and yet the issues keep on coming which means trust will keep on falling i want to stop the question of 3rd party advertisers or developers then it's an issue of features that the company itself made and has to apologize for i really messed this one up somehow we missed this point with news feed in many feet
and we didn't build in the proper privacy controls right away this was a big mistake when our part and i'm sort of for it. we have made a lot of mistakes building this feature but we have made even more with how we have handled them we simply did a bad job with this release and i apologize for it broken record much and yet the list goes on and on and on this article actually breaks it all down from the very beginning before the company was even called facebook and yet here we are again but really what else can you expect from a company that works on an advertising based business model meaning those companies need your private information in order to properly target you and they're willing to pay for that and honestly do we really get to be mad anymore for me once shame on you fool me every other week well at least some things in life are predictable. should a t.v. overage follow internet giant google to its got it so privacy battle its hands its
no on a $2000000000.00 mission to buy up the fitness truck and device make a fit bit the deals caught the attention of european regulators and previously campaign is the 1st because it needs access to a lot of very personal data to work properly like sleep patterns heart rates every day physical activity well consumer groups fear google could try to monetize our most private information. regulators must assume that google will in practice utilize the entirety of food business currently independent unique highly sensitive data set in combination with a cellphone but equally as this could increase its profits google insists it would not use any health data to target advertisement or sell it to 3rd parties they also promises to be transparent about what type of personal information is collected and for what purpose privacy campaigner and technology expert bill me though isn't so convinced. we're now seeing a further acquisition this time by google of flip it and where is facebook argued
that it wasn't all about the data it was purely about the other networks and trying to create synergy between them and in the same way google is saying it's not about the data or it's about the devices it's seeking to integrate into its ecosystem both organizations aren't actually being entirely truthful it is about the dates both organizations have a business model that is all about data what we're seeing is a less sudden less trust of all sites each time that facebook and google and others make further mistakes and make slow the promises that they then fail to keep the amount of trust and errands in the relationship is reduced and i think what i think we're seeing is a situation where the regulators are being forced to take action. and italian senator says he's ready to launch a new political party with the aim of a breakaway from brussels to capitalize on growing anti e.u.
sentiment the coronavirus brace compounded those feelings plenty of a talented seem say they felt abandoned by the e.u. was that pandemic took hold brussels eventually apologize for neglecting it so you partner very publicly and agreed bailout packages although quite how that's going to be used to stand up for debate at the height of the break a survey showed that 49 percent of italians wanted out of the e.u. another study suggests trust in brussels has dropped 64 percent since 2001 the other link process of course is the shared currency the euro still got support in italy according to a poll there last month more than half of people are ok with it well only a 3rd oppose in the senate to setting up this new euro skeptic party believes italy needs to leave the e.u. to regain its economic power. we at the moment we want to overcome the perception the near liberalism is the i. only model to base politics on today governments may change but the policy which is pursued always comes from brussels. this is long
term reflection since we have been trapped in the european cage we have lost our purchasing power we have lost the momentum which allowed italian businesses to be competitive globally the weeks and months of code that highlighted once again an absolute lack of political will in the e.u. the e.u. does not exist there is only the german union which benefits the german economy itself and the countries tied with it the point is that exiting the european union in euro zone means exiting a macro economic vision that has benefited only the financial elites and multinational corporations so far we can do without the e.u. it does not seem to me that the e.u. strengthened italy's economy i would say the opposite we remember when its really was a sovereign country it was the 4th power within the g 7 so we know perfectly well which direction to take to develop our country we will be able to go it on our own again to manage all the funds we need to relaunch the manufacturing areas of this
country tourism definitely needs a fresh push as our attractions appeal to everyone the problem is that we do not have an opportunity within the e.u. to develop our economy and this made in italy brand like we should be doing. follow so many other stories from us as well online and social media plus it so far you know is here in half an hour with more from the r.t. world needs center but for now reporting from moscow i'm kevin 0 in thank you so much for watching this weekend maybe catch again tomorrow and hope you have a great weekend.
