the. election of ukraine as the prolonged pro european rallies that still disrupting the government along with the country's crippled a call i mean. the honeymoon is over australia's high cooled of a time the country's fast law allowing same sex marriage it's. been less than a week. we've been married and we've been on there it's made while ange is re-instated aids panel same sex relationships while people in croatia recently outlawed it for good look at setbacks for gay rights in different countries. and medics sadly seventeen civilians have fallen victim to a u.s. drone strike in yemen which many warn only loose sympathy for al qaida terrorists in the region.
this is aussie international coming to you live from moscow hello everyone welcome to the program. members of the european parliament are urging an early election in ukraine and a bid to end the crisis that's been gripping the country and the peace have also called for a new mitigation mission at the highest level to establish dialogue between ukraine's government and told that he called a democratic opposition these statements come as a ukrainian delegation isn't brussels a ring to discuss the roadmap to was a possible trade deal while in kiev antigovernment protesters continue to defy their sorties blocking the city's center with barricades and forcing a horse to a work of government institutions and as archie's an x. a force it's not only causing chaos in the streets but is also taking
a toll on the country's already faltering economy. the. the. key of sprawl just have ended its fourth week with no sign it will die down the recent attempt by police to clear the streets proved fruitless and have only hardened the people's resolve it took the protesters only several hours to rebuild the barricades which the police i'd take it down in a matter of minutes and now they're even bigger than before the blockade has existed for almost two weeks now and not only create something of a traffic nightmare for the locals but also as the government claims it cripples the country's economy because of governmental buildings being under siege ukraine's prime minister says the country is still without said budget for next year gross issues for drafting the budget for next year and the parliament should have an opportunity to work on it the protests are destruction many social projects like road construction and metro atlanta which here dantley needs the economic impact is
being felt far from the rallies in the capital one of the country's leading winemakers factories a thousand kilometers away from the scenes playing out in clear times are tough but . what's going on in here is complete chaos and it's causing serious economic damage to state enterprises like a vineyard our export license has expired because work in the public offices in. capital was disrupted by the protest we were unable to export five trucks of wine to russia and lost two hundred fifty thousand euros and now our contract with russian importers for the next year is up in the air because they doubt our reliability. and that's happening to a country already on the verge of economic collapse with an external debt of one hundred thirty six billion dollars and what is widely seen by economists as a pre default level standard and poor's have recently warned if the violence continues they will need to lower ukraine's credit rating even further unless the country gets a large injection of cash from somebody over the next six months at the latest
maybe even sooner than they will default fearing ukraine's economy would not survive the unrest ukrainians rushed to the banks buying foreign currency and closing their accounts in november foreign currency reserves experienced a deficit of almost eight hundred million euro the second highest figure in the country's history there is a clean freeze in demand for foreign currency because it's definitely does not happen to financial stability of the contrary foreign exchange reserves are going. to disappear very quickly and mean in that light the value of people. basically trying to close their deposits this commercial lands. also significant risks on the commercial banking system in the country. the revolution down with the government to prison that's what we've been hearing at the key of protests for weeks but
a possible default or economic collapse is not the top of the town behind the barricades. the r.t. reporting from kiev ukraine. also the leaders of ukraine's opposition have agreed to meet president unocal to church and rein iran is there at the same chief of the newspaper. says the u.s. simply fueling the divide even. only a tactic to further increase the tensions and because. the the e.u. behind it need to have tasted blood and they want the whole thing i think they want to ukraine back in the western food as it was after the orange revolution which european government would agree to any snap election did we have snap elections in greece in spain in you know hundreds of thousands of people went on the streets
demonstrating against. the taxpayers' money being squandered on banks there's no we don't have the these demonstrations played down in our media. were tear gassed. or club. and of course that closely following the situation in kiev on our website we've got a live timeline of events surrounding ukraine had totty have called for the very late. the high court in australia have overturned the country's first law allowing same sex couples to marry that's just less than a week after it came into force earlier this month india held its colonial era legislation criminalizing homosexuality while croatians overwhelmingly voted
against same sex marriage and national referendum aussies get a check and looks now into why some countries refused to give the rainbow a green light. most western countries already recognize in some form the right of gay couples to get married and adopt children but in other parts of the world there is the opposite trend in less than a week. we've been married and we've been on there it's in australia just days after the nation's capital allowed same sex couples to get married the high court there struck down that decision saying the regional authorities had no right to decide the matter if you live in a relationship with loves and trusts to any seven australian couples then saw their marriage annulled. australia's high court ruled that gay marriage was illegal because the marriage act only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman and only the parliament can change the legislation the most recent attempt to change the law in the australian parliament failed last year polls in the
country show support for gay marriage stands at fifty three percent. an offer that absolutely amazing that you know history written jumping through hoops to try to make sure that every tree on the planet has its natural environment from far east that we would be challenging the definition of marriage which creates exactly that environment for a child requiring that it's between a man or woman in india the supreme court has just made gay sex illegal again since the nineteenth century india has had a ten year sentence on the statute books for quote court only the course against the order of nature four years ago a lower court found it on constitutional the supreme court just brought the law back into force by making a similar argument don't feel silly and judges only the nation parliament has the right to change it but with the overwhelming majority of indians against same sex
marriage and with a conservative nationalist group leading in the upcoming elections in legislative change in the next few years is highly unlikely you have about a old. he just didn't. know all the communities of this country that albert if you didn't know friends and you should remain so when you have seen something similar this december. voted in a referendum to outlaw same sex marriage of the most powerful the population. changes in the constitution in the tug of war between those who are and those who are not allowed to say i do the conservative view on marriage seems at least at the moment to be prevailing in many parts of the world get a check on our team. on this may paris soul signs of percepts is poor on to its streets and good at that government's decision to legalize gay marriage and we spoke about this earlier to robot harness strasberg based investigative journalist who things the french authorities are just afraid to put they should to
a nationwide referendum there is a big increase she can step system about it because it needs using as i'm sure human rights of every kind of same sex marriage achieved it a substantial majority in the opinion of much of western society but there is perhaps a tendency now to look at it more carefully and start asking questions like well what happens our children latins about adoption choice of the french people would it be a civil union or the opinion polls are quite clear that the majority of people that's the solution they wanted but the government didn't want that they didn't want to tell it the reasons because they wanted to the knowledge and the direction of that was there left to be exporters with very much in favor of same sex marriage it would be wise when you make a major change in society to do this but the reason they don't do it is because they're afraid that if you have a referendum this is certainly the case of trying to have a referendum on this what are you going to russia have a referendum on a host of other issues and governments will find their hands tied and very often
they don't get the arts as they want but they go to the rest read it because it focuses attention on the problem and question people actually start to think about it rather than gaily answering public opinion polls without giving it much thought . this is all seem to national and coming up in the program opens the floodgates seventy five yeahs of borland gas national not in the slightest asian a coming to an end with western companies lining up to salute ben and reap the benefits all the details in a few minutes. it was supposed to celebrate a new beginning but in a monstrous seconds turned into a disaster a quarter. two medical sources at least seventeen members of a wedding procession were killed by what officials claimed was a u.s. drone strike they say the missiles were fired at the group which had been mistaken for i know kind of homeboy many others were also injured and that. uses drones as
a key tool to why al qaida terrorists in the region they do not comment on individual strikes onto our media benjamin says incidents like this only pay into militants. every time there's a drone strike that's the best recruiting tool for al qaeda and killing people in a wedding party i am sure that this will lead to not tens but probably hundred people joining al qaeda and this guarantees the cycle of violence will go on in perpetual war the drone strikes actually are a support to al qaeda it doesn't get rid of al qaeda. every month more innocent lives are being lost and will the american administration says a person strikes unmanned aircraft in pakistan yemen and somalia are thought to have killed more than a thousand civilians in just over a decade that figure doesn't include afghanistan and iraq where john talks happen
on a regular basis but no casualties statistics are available despite america's operations al qaeda remains octave in the arabian peninsula but to draw an actual believes the drone strikes will go on anyway. this is just another example in a long list of despicable illegal and immoral combat drone strikes on the part of the government of the united states that it could be prevented there's no reason for this to continue and the world needs to rise up and point the finger at the united states for causing this unnecessary damage and death you know they say that they're very precise they're surgical and we can we see over and over and over again and there are many many examples of civilians women children old people being killed by these drones and even if the drones attack the people that the cia intends to attack until they've been proven to do something that's against the law
these are extrajudicial assassinations and they're absolutely up for it and no legal. the passing of nelson mandela wasn't only about grief and tributes as we're telling shortly south africa is immense immigrant population has plenty of reasons to worry about that teacher after the death of the anti-apartheid icon our correspondent investigates why bail in the lead in just a few. old . technology innovation all the developments around russia we've got the future covered. wealthy british style. guide for.

fast time in seventy five years some fear it means selling the nation's richest of foreigners they law will allow western companies to hop into mexico's fossil fuel deposits and pocket the profits the country's oil and gas food husband waning in recent years under his say the moves designed to revitalize the industry. believes a big lie in the gulf of mexico which the government cannot afford to develop but the opposition is accusing the president of giving in to american pressure as aussies nicholas sanchez o'donovan now reports. we have to say it was one of the most chaotic moments ever seen in the history of mexican politics outside the barricade to build in hundreds of protesters rallied against the reform and inside the picture wasn't really so much different now the p r d and the modern no movement both left wing movements have called for massive rally on sunday regarded
the content of the reform well it basically means that the government is now allowed to give private companies contracts and licenses to explore and drill the oil and gas in mexico deals that until now will obviously work prohibited under mexico's constitution opponents to the reform say they fear that the big corporations especially from the u.s. will we have complete domination over mexico's natural resources and the truth is that it can be a big a very big deal actually for the u.s. we can't forget that mexico remains one of the top five crude exporters to there not know the northern neighbors chip in over a million barrels a day this energy reform also modifies three points of the mexican constitution therefore it now has to be approved by a minimum of seventeen local governments this this is step is really only a formality and groups on the left think that the measure is so big that it should
have been subjected to a national referendum and one analyst told us western and into giants are celebrating victory as mexico will this sending its resources to them and bargain price. so as you look at a case we're seeing natural resources being stolen by businessmen with the government's help we see high flying politicians provide companies with all the legal assistance they can so the companies end up owning resources that should be controlled by the state and businesses even get control over employees rights and it's clear that these rights will then be violated these proposals are then put before congress which passes them while some of the most unpopular measures get included as reforms i believe or did i can't imagine that any of these lawmakers then go on to work for all companies after their mandate expires that's what is happening with the system where the public sector sets up the private sector the state starts to sell off bit by bit especially now in times of crisis and they sell
it all cheap. for former bank bosses in iceland have been jailed for financial fraud they work is that of hiding the facts a qatari investor bought into the fun with money lent illegally by the bank itself it went bust into thousand date helping to cripple iceland's economy less now cost life to ask financial analyst max kaiser for nor insight mr max keiser welcome to r.c.s. so well saw the broader ramifications of this case. well i think you have to understand that in this crime that was committed in iceland with the participation of the government in qatar you have a classic ponzi scheme where the bank was lending money to qatar and kentucky was buying shares in banks like toppling bank and iceland to artificially inflate the price of the stock of the bank and then they would use that artificially high bank stock price to make loans to make acquisitions and then when the bubble burst it
all came down and of course there was a crime committed and the icelandic government is now prosecuting for that financial fraud but what's interesting is that if you look at what's happening in the u.k. right now at h.s.b.c. barclays lloyds or royal bank of scotland in particular they are participating in the exactly the same fraud with the help and participation of the bank of england it's a program called quantitative easing where the central bank loans the commercial banks to buy stock or bonds in this case in the central bank so they are doing the exact same thing that in iceland is a crime i think because iceland russia iran and china are all banking systems that are outside of the control of the federal reserve bank of america or the bank of england in the u.k. they are free to prosecute financial crimes we don't have that freedom in the u.k. because the bankers are protected by the bank of international settlements in switzerland the federal reserve in new york who cool loued on
a global basis to line the pockets of the criminals in this case the bankers in the u.k. and america and of course the economies are suffering catastrophic only as a result of this poverty is on the rise and living standards in the u.k. are crashing worse than they ever crowd going back to victorian times. any chance other highflying financial skirmishes will now find themselves in the dark on some of the challenges that. well like i was alluding to there a moment ago the banking outside of russia iran china and iceland are all pretty much controlled by what's called are known as the rothschild influence the rothschilds of cars and their family really owns this central banks in america in the bank of england but china russia iran and iceland don't have to answer to the rothschilds so they're free to prosecute what i
call these financial terrorists to want to stand should governments control institutions financial institutions and they deal with them. well governments are completely co-opted by the bankers so the u.k. government for example is been co-opted by barclays and royal bank of scotland in particular was just caught targeting small businesses for a death where they were setting small businesses up to fail so that one of their affiliates could swoop in and buy assets for pennies on the dollar so rb ass is acting as a what i call a financial terrorist with the full cooperation of david cameron george osborne and mark carney the head of the bank of england so they are fully engaged in the confiscation of wealth using what i call financial apartheid and other tricks to essentially steal the wealth from the from the vast majority for the benefit of
a very few on the inside a code array of bankers who work globally but not in iceland iceland have the courage to do what we've seen in some other territories by prosecuting bankers in vietnam recently a banker caught committing financial crimes was executed now there needs to be a deterrent against financial fraud of this magnitude capital punishment seems maybe to be a good idea if it will deter bankers from committing acts of financial terrorism in america capital punishment is legal i say use it to go after the really bad guys the people on wall street the people to central bank stop stop killing poor black kids in texas because you don't like the way they look under capital punishment laws and go after the white guys on wall street were committing genuine acts of financial terrorism they've got capital punishment use it use it to to better society not just kill poor kids down south we're going to point mike's a max kinds of financial analyst and host of the kinds report many thanks indeed we
