2:05 am
caused by blasts. danish police say that powerful explosions blew for holes in the pipe, and it's new. a twin, gnawed stream to gas deliveries have been suspended since september, ma'am at val is in moscow for us. he has the latest reaction on the damage to these pipelines from kremlin spokesman to meet your passcode. he said that russia is a co owner of these pipelines and has the right to be included, but the europeans have made sure not to include russia not allow it, not allow us to have some share of that. you know, of that investigation. he's had, they also even, you know, try to korea, get off the walls and the findings to suit their own narrative and to lay the blame on russia. but he said, that's absurd because russia has its own intelligence. inflammation about this and they indicates quite the opposite things and russia has been anxious, interests have been damaged and you know, logic there indicates that, you know, someone else has been behind this act of sabotage, which she and i,
2:06 am
she's also described as an act of terrorism against its own interests. so our days go by and more, more facts are revealed about the russians get more and more frustrated. at the fact that they are still denied access to this investigation and being there to see for their own eyes and make it make their own decision about this. and he's basically, you know, they're hinting that whatever is all your opinions and now about this. but she's not going to accept it, i'll be happy with it until russia itself is included now moving on, and you as president joe biden has promised to push the next congress to codify abortion rights protections following next month and time elections. but that will be likely only possible if his democratic party controls enough seats in congress abortion has become a critical issue for versus heading into next month. those who were call earlier
2:07 am
this year, the usda supreme court overturned abortion rights protections at the federal level . really 22 days away from the most consequential election in our history. my view races election where the choice or the stakes are crystal clear, especially when it comes to the right to choose that thing and alan fisher, he joins us now from washington. d. c. and this all sounds like very good politics when it comes to getting people out to vote, especially something demographics. while we're 3 weeks away from the mid terms and joe biden, and his team at the white house can look at the pause and see that the likelihood is they are not going to hold on to the house. and he's got to mobilize voters. how does he do that? well, if you back to june, and the supreme court essentially over turning roe vs wade, the essentially that seeing that abortion is no longer protected in the united states. there was a huge surge of support for democrats. thousands of people came out on the streets
2:08 am
across the country. there was a huge surge and voters registering for the midterms. and particularly women and minorities who thought that abortion rights would very much be on the ballot come november. and they had to do something about it. there was also concern to about the protections of, of other rights such as marriage rights including that of same sex marriage. but over the last few weeks, that support seems to have died down. in fact, only 8 percent of people suggest that abortion is the top of their priorities in the election next month. most people are concerned about the economy and that means the cost of living crisis. and also the fact that there is the possibility that fuel prices, the cost of filling the vehicles, is going to go up in the next couple of weeks. and so joe biden knows that if he wants the democrats to hold on to the host, then he's got to do it by getting people out to vote. because if he doesn't, and if the paws are right and the republicans when the house that he essentially
2:09 am
becomes a lame duck president for the last 2 years of his term in his 1st term in office. if he decides to run again. though the pause are suggesting that the republicans are going to win the house and probably when it by at least 5, possibly a lot more seats. and, but the good news for joe biden is that it's likely that the democrats will keep a hold of the senate, perhaps even winning the one seat they need to take over all control of the paul's right. well, let's go act 2016. when donald trump confounded the pause and won the presidential election and the i've been wrong a few times since, so it's not entirely certain that the pauls are right. but joe biden knows he's got to get people out to vote. if he's got any chance of quarter fine at the the abortion into u. s. law, he knows he's got to do that. the only way of doing it is getting them out to the paws. will it work? asked me in 3 weeks how he, well do and an alan fish at f r i n washington
2:10 am
d. thank. thank them. all rallies have begun and chillers capital santiago to mock the 3rd anniversary of mass protests against inequality. more than a 1000000 people have taken to the streets to demand better health services, education and social welfare. that 3 people died and the social revolt back in 2019 . and latin america had a sally senior from santiago, the anniversary of the social uprising as it called here in chile that started on october. 19th of 2019 is underway. it's been authorized to take part along, afford kilometer route along this major thoroughfare. you see here, but already the protests of the water cannon rather, and the tear gas is being used quite generously the you can feel toward the, the tear gas in the air. there are tens of thousands of riot police deployed here already. and not too many protest, there's at least that we can see some of them have been throwing stones at the
2:11 am
authorities. but many people who would normally have been here have decided to stay home because there is fear of violence. in fact, something that's quite extraordinary, as of the government has allowed the people of the capital not to co role, but to leave home to leave work rather early at 3 pm in the afternoon so that they can basically clear out down the downtown area. this is something that is very unusual, but the fear again, a violence is not so much as, as rather become something more common and many other chileans. i've decided to stay home and not come out here and, and basically send the message that they still do want the social change. they had come out to protest in favor of back in 2019 there was an attempt to write, rewrite the constitution to basically to put to bed the, the pinochet's era constitution. but there was a referendum just about
2:12 am

it's tough because i need my car for work. my job inflations fueling discontent in france, but this political scientist says that the sort of unrest seen in the country during the yellow vest movement is unlikely. labor problem could or one when called after all, it's unlikely that we will see a large social movement emerge that would unite all workers because people all have different concerns to kimberly, among the working classes. so it's hard for everyone to come together was all the french president has urged an end to the refinery. blockade and opinion polls suggest a majority of french people now won't the same. but these protestors say they won't give up their fight until their demands are met. the sasha butler, al jazeera paris while hundreds of students and columbia have fought with police at march to demand the release of detained protesters. most of them were arrested during nation. my demonstrations calling for the prime minister and presidents

one thing which has been lacking in holding individuals accountable for, for engaging in christianity and conflict. and we've seen cases of executives being charged with providing technology to, to around previously as part of the nuclear program. so we, we have seen individuals executives being charged with, with facilitating crimes. but i think one of the things that we also need to look at the syria context is as we look at reconstruction, there are corporations that are effectively benefiting from conflict. and so it is important to, to continue to, to send that message. is that whether you are an individual, corporation or state, you will be held accountable. now thousands of venezuelan migrants are expected to be stranded at the u. s. next february, i am following
