accusing the government of what he called effectively misplaced priorities but slow this morning you know relationship to god where we know exactly for sure it's on the last. to the bombs. but they will stop the. person. holding the snowden made these remarks at a ceremony right here in moscow at an undisclosed location where he was given the sam adams award for integrity in intelligence now that award was presented to him by a group of prominent american whistleblowers and former government officials they joined our t.v. for an in-depth studio discussion on thursday this is of course speak first time that the ward a world has been able to catch a glimpse of mr snowden since he got asylum here in russia the last time we saw him was at the sheremetyevo airport transit zone back in july and while snowden himself may be safe and sound there have been questions about the fate of those who have
worked with them and of course that is a worry that's been expressed by wiki leaks founder julian assange and i'm more concerned in terms of prison people at risk. journalists sarah harrison as we know the newspaper was rated grills part of the time for nine hours and for more investigation for the terrorism but it's the good she has thought it all so there you have it julian a songe describing a difficult political climate for whistleblowers and those who helped them it's not a man himself meanwhile we are told at least has no regrets about what he did and believes that it was the right decision. worldwide a rally against genetically modified food giant monsanto is being held across the globe actually at supper testing the use of potentially harmful chemicals in a food production something monsanto says is the only way to feed the globe's growing population countries of cities are said to take part in the march across
more than sixty countries. reports now from new york. in the land of supersize approximately eighty five percent of all processed foods contain genetically modified organisms g.m.o. is an acronym that owns its notoriety largely to the agriculture giant monsanto a multinational billion dollar corporation generating global criticism revolving around the safety of its products and growing a monopoly over the world's food supply they are able to patent the genetically modified foods with a very strong patent for farmers can only be the seed from monsanto each year and they can save the sea researchers have documented dozens of health risks associated with the consumption of a modified foods and the majority of americans have campaigned for g.m.o. foods to be labeled just like these organic fruits are labeled but so far the will of the people has been silenced by the money of monsanto according to open secrets
dot org the companies spent nearly six million dollars last year lobbying federal lawmakers and food regulators to payoff came this year with the passing of the so-called monsanto protection act a bill that gives the biotech companies immunity from lawsuits pertaining to the production and sale of genetically modified seeds the new reality of the world is that chemical companies are feeding us and our families now sort of laugh already to table rather than farm to table and in an effort to widen its power and profit the agriculture giant has recently purchased a corporation which sells climate data to farmers the price tag of nine hundred thirty million dollars of wasn't a problem for monsanto which grossed a reported thirteen point five billion dollars in revenue last year but decades before g.m.o. foods and fears about modified foods came along monsanto was already in the business it helped bring pesticides agent orange and terminator seeds to the market
agent orange was used. by the u.s. military during the vietnam war where it's estimated to have killed hundreds of thousands of people its effects are still being felt today vietnam says some half a million children have suffered birth defects due to herbicide. monsanto's current practices have ignited protests around the globe. millions are taking to the streets demanding that big food comes clean by either illegally genetically engineered products or not selling them at all. new york. and when santo is not the only gem producer causing concern was folks are calling o'neill who is director of government affairs at the center for food safety in the the us and he says such companies have the power to pressure governments worldwide to get their products on the market these marches are raising awareness
about the issue and bring awareness not only about monsanto and its influence in agriculture but also other chemical companies that have become major agribusiness influences on capitol hill i think you we see an overwhelming influence in governments and that really has to do with money that these are major chemical companies the top i mean fifty three percent over fifty three percent of seeds are owned by just a handful of these major agribusiness chemical companies so they exert tremendous influence in politics and have millions upon millions of dollars to spend to ensure that their products spread through reviews and also to ensure that consumers are not informed about what the products they are eating so for instance are not labeling genetically engineered foods. and of course we'll be closely following the global action against monsanto here and online as well plus we've got
a special documentary coming up on just how saved genetically modified foods are for your health golden rice is on air in a couple of hours. is global business risk. that's in the interests versus millions of voices billions in profits versus global culture. or something. argy. bargy dot com the white house and house republicans have again failed to reach a deal to end the u.s. budget crisis barack obama rejected a republican proposal for a short term lifting of the debt ceiling that would be wise as some suggest to just kick the debt ceiling can down the road for a couple of months and flirt with the first ever intentional default right in the middle of the holiday shopping season the president also said he would only sign a clean short term increase of the boring limit that means one free of any policy
demands republicans want to delay obama's health care reforms what they want to house is refusing to discuss it until the government is reopened if no agreement is reached the droste will run out of money by a total of the seventeen s and the world default trying to force something pleasing cancer patients those treatment with treatment has been put on hold things up over eighteen now lives are at stake two hundred people are trying to get into trials at an age each week and each week passes that's another two hundred that are turned away at this time and it's a matter of life or death it's not a matter of inconvenience or just an irritation for us we need this treatment michelle long been the one who was diagnosed with coma she was supposed to receive treatment of the u.s. national institutes of health but was turned away after lawmakers failed to agree on the budget we asked what should like to say to them. i have heard a couple of instances where they find that this is just the game between them and
it's a matter of winning and i'd like to say that it's not a matter of win or lose i mean it's a please listen to the people and know that it's affecting so many that are in need of help. now truckers have taken the time. to solve the shandong crisis themselves by blocking highways to clone traffic around d.c. resignation or impeachment. morsi in egypt. some of them have some pretty strong views about obama's presidency coming up we'll tell you all about their demands to get the government moving again. and also later this hour why has london been named the place to be in britain our report about. this short break.
a boat carrying african migrants capsized in the mediterranean sea most of the approximately two hundred who were on board have been rescued by maltese and italian ships supported by helicopters in a similar incident last week model three hundred people mostly from eritrea and somalia drowned you know that it's one an island of lampedusa. militias marcion the street said dawn and believe me the city had been guards if they were chanting and waving banners of support of abu anas al libi a man seized by american forces under tuesday of being involved in the bombings of two embassies in africa the british has denounced the u.s. raid to the contrary under prime minister on these a done of collaborating of. libyan citizen the head of the transitional government was himself kidnapped and quickly returned this week a sign of the country's current testability. venezuela has detained a us operate it ship which and the disputed waters which was also
a guy yana the vessel was being used by an american oil exploration company guyana called the move an unprecedented threat to peace while venezuela said the ship violated its exclusive economic zone without permission a border route between the two south american countries has lasted for over a century with the search for sources fueling tensions. it may be one of the world's most popular tourist destinations boasting historic sites and top attractions but the city of london has now won a less auspicious title a tongue in cheek. or it calls britain's crop astounds his name as the country's widest as he is laura smith asked the man behind their board why. it's interesting the dreary day newsy day here in london typical off to the weather which may be the perfect day for me to tell you that london has been facing the worst area in the
u.k. to live in despite the fact that within a mile radius from here it houses the parliament westminster abbey the london eye and other really famous landmarks it's a book called crafts hounds returns which names the fifty worst places to be in the u.k. as an adult to london i didn't really understand this because they said of london being the worst place but luckily i'm doing it since he had to explain that to me with an umbrella and his gopi across town to tell them that i mean i can think of ten worst places just off the top of my head what your criteria are all kinds of criteria i think one of the things that people writing about a lot is the daily grind it so hard in london getting all that the northern lights have your on but i mean you'll no use jammed into someone else's all the time the expense the fact that it costs so much to buy property or is in fact impossible for most people to buy property in the center of london is be hollowed out a union as can afford to stay there not even professionals like doctors can and
there's also a lot of anger with london coming from the rest of the country you had the banking crisis which is all centered around london and we're told that subsequently the recession is over and there's growth but only london really seems to be getting the benefits and the sticking up another housing bubble it's primarily it's a book that people read in the toilet and it's made to make them laugh but it does it doesn't seem to provoke to mind. people thinking about a times in the way we treat them and the way we live and hopefully start a conversation quite serious conversation it's certainly easy to say on a day like today why london might not be everyone's idea of paradise because because it's the capital fit to get inside and out space it is from the outside it's incredibly expensive to visit the transport system isn't very reliable and people are very rude it might just be possible for london to pick up its behavior in the next ten years and become not quite so awful. and owner and
online he's a taste of what we have for you on all c. dot com right now. a bit late. luckily the drive old this truck managed to get al just minutes before a train smashed into it and drank it along the tracks check out the video and find out exactly what happened on you tube channel. just spelling errors go this was a pretty big one by an authority you'd pray would get it right the vatican's it was drawn as a series of papal commemorative medals which celebrates the leases rather than jesus had the full story at all to get out. right to see. her street. and i would think the church.
on our reporters would. instantly. be in the. i think that. they would like to know that you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open process is critical to our democracy that albus. rule. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and the trust of a girl we've been hijacked right handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once it's all just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem truck rational debate and
a real discussion of critical issues facing up to find her job ready to join the movement then welcome to the big picture. since nine eleven america has done and has done a lot to boost surveillance and increased security however the policies don't necessarily make people feel safe and risk puting parno of terrorists around every corner i've been marchin looks at that and breaking this said later today but here's a preview. and recent flight from d.c. to orlando hosted what can only be described as a terrorist dry run take a look at how they figured it out. crewmembers say that shortly after takeoff a group of four quote middle eastern men caused a commotion the witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach toward
the flight deck door he made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom called for a considerable length of time you know the reason stories like this even gain traction in the first place is because of the fear of the other or by that i mean anyone who remotely looks brown and to prove my point it just so happens that i've acquired some rare footage of what really went down on that flight. that you get the idea. talk about humanitarian crisis has been the fuel for western calls for an intervention in syria's conflicts but as aussies point to syria reports of many in a sign of the country simply trying to live as normal
a life as. now that we have been able to make progress on the chemical weapons issue we should not forget we also needed to make progress on the humanitarian issue a warning echoing through many corridors of power in the wastes is on track to be. the biggest humanitarian catastrophe of the twenty first century and this is building into one of the great humanitarian crisis on the face of the planet. no this is not true we have enough they are all liars we don't care what they say here as you can see we have no trouble in this bakery in downtown damascus tens of thousands of traditional reflow are churned out each day the machines work sixteen hours a day six days a week sure we have extra quantities enough for another fifteen days. while in this public market and the thousands like it across syria shoppers
and management tell us in two years they've never been any shortages in this rice and sugar there are always available you never have a shortage of them in our warehouses around was full. isom adani recently arrived in the country and was shocked to find that local stores are full i thought that there would be nothing nothing at all everywhere in the supermarkets and nothing to eat and nothing i was really very agreeably surprised there is a lot of everything fruits. vegetables. ok the reality is that most people here are going about their daily routine far removed from the hardships depicted in the foreign press but when it comes to shortages there is one that is crippling the economy queues like this are commonplace at gas stations around the country caused by sanctions imposed by the united states and the european union ironically the very countries that are calling
for humanitarian intervention. the syrian people need a solution not the governments or the media who are trying to use everything we have even the small things like bread to justify their own objectives the fight for syria is far from over and the psychological war the battle of perceptions of of reality is likely to be fought for as long if not longer than the sides who have taken up arms against each other. damascus. the us government has shot itself down so trying decided to shut down the capital in response the goal behind the will in protest and so-called washington to clog up the traffic on d.c. interstates many also express their discontent at obama's policies as a whole and didn't hold back. part of our agenda is we're counting for his resignation or impeachment like marci in egypt and if we raise one hundred million americans across the country we will demand his resignation or pressure of the
house and senate to call for his impeachment own treason and for. and along with the demanding about the leaves office there were calls for the u.s. not to support al qaeda and not to raise the debt ceiling armed for and then still want spread n.s.a. surveillance this grassroots campaign has received a lot of support on facebook has launched a successful twitter. and now coming your way next to a mountain was breaking this at. you know it's getting old trying to beat the war drums to invade iran i think the
let's invade iran talk has been going on since i was in college to keep the saber rattling rolling israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu declared in front of the un that iran is building nuclear weapons that could hit new york in three to four years no he said new york obviously he is trying to spook a certain country with nuclear destruction the delegates from namibia were probably unmoved sadly this time netanyahu failed to bring a funny cartoon bomb picture with him like in his two thousand and twelve un speech in which he also warned the world about the threat of a nuclear iran you know i might be more optimistic about israel accusing other countries of being nuclear threats if they had a better track record themselves although israel is a bit candid with their arsenal according to a b.b.c. article the federation of american scientists believes that israel's arsenal has grown to about two hundred nukes based on their surveillance of ever expanding facilities inside the country also let's not forget that israel has plenty of ways to deliver those two hundred nuclear bombs if the need be so my question is why should we automatically trust israel with a lot of nuclear weapons but not iran is it because they are bureaucrats where
european suits and shave i don't know it just seems to me that disarmed countries are better advocate. it's for nuclear disarmament but that's just my opinion. soldiers you're in the military now no more joking any more. never been some time in my life. every day would be most obscene limits. you think it's going to be easy. but everyone's just.
but i will only react to situations i have read the reports. and know i will be. the state department comment on your latter point please save. your care you have a car it's on the docket no gonna. take you no more weasel words. when you made a direct question are you prepared for a change when you when you should be ready for a. freedom of speech. and the freedom to watch. the. guys i'm having martin and this is breaking the sat so tampa bay local news just came out with this stunning report apparently in recent flight from d.c. to orlando hosted what can only be described as a terrorist. take
a look at how they figured it out. crewmembers say that shortly after takeoff a group of four quote middle eastern men caused a commotion the witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach toward the flight deck door he made a hard left and entered the floor bathroom quote for a considerable length of time well let me get this straight a guy that may have been arab looked at the bathroom in a flight because he may have had a bad case of diarrhea side effects from bad airline food yep definitely a red flag but i can't be the only reason for it. while he was in there the other three men proceeded to move about the cabin changing seats opening overhead bins and quote generally making a scene but ten news investigators contacted both u.s. airways and t.s.a. and both confirmed the incident well i'm glad that the t.s.a. confirmed that three men were shot.
