2:29 am
it calls urgently for dialogue that is no alternative i have been shocked by the force used by the police i fully understand that the spanish government wants to defend the territorial integrity of the country on the other side there are. also justified. requests were made by the people of kut the lumia so that cannot be answered fire just by police force other calls for dialogue i hope europe will be able to moderate such a dialogue between many central government and. the government of kut the lumia so the main issue between the main bone of contention between catalonia and the central government is fiscal policy council on one control over their taxes something that the basques have for instance so it's not impossible why
2:30 am
not just give them that one that suits the tensions. this could be the outcome of a fruitful dialogue. i don't think that the supporters of cut the loons knew that the long years nineteen independence extremists. they want like everybody else in europe to live in peace and to decide on their own. affairs so compromise should people feasible and i call upon to both sides to be ready to such a dialogue you know in carrying down and the united kingdom central government allowed secession referendums tribute them whether respect and personated people to state peacefully why didn't the same happen in spain. just to just to declare it's illegal is this not enough of it is of course not in accordance with the spanish
2:31 am
constitution so. the musicians of the. constitutional court then the bill but. the this is the cut alone people should have to opportunity to express their opinion and i'm not sure that on the peaceful conditions there would be a majority for independence. but you're right the spanish government should be ready to accept the referendum with. full information of the people what does it mean what it means independence what it means and hence autonomy so and the question perhaps should not be only yes and no to independence by those zero option enhanced autonomy for catalonia you know before this violence happened the public opinion on independence was actually a tilting and moderates favor is it too late now to persuade the catalans around
2:32 am
again does the you're right you're right to it and. the behavior of the police is absolute unacceptable and that has driven i think more people to the side of the separatists but do you think it's too late now to actually personally have the catalans the way around no it's never been no but it's never too late it's never too late as long as peaceful solutions are possible one should strive for so qantas prime minister trudeau is actually from quebec which was once looking to break away from canada does spain maybe need a prime minister from catalonia in power would that actually help solve anything. for of time be don't see the opportunity of having
2:33 am
a prime minister from ca to lose in the spanish government so let's look for every other. opportunity to solve these disputes peacefully barcelona's mayor has called on spain's prime minister to step down they say appointing or stepping down the problem is that the spanish central government has to learn how to deal with the more self-determination that's that's the that's the point what do you mean and that is you said before they are. then and independents are not independence and hence autonomy would be such an option and with more things fiscal zero sorted before the government can cut alone i think main difficulties.
2:34 am
could be solved by before the referendum spain's foreign minister branded a mockery of democracy long list of the kata loans are also calling the actions i would read an affront to democracy who if anyone is right in the situation once again. your personal take not an official statement. here we have a conflict of two principles the principle of. sense to terminations of people and the principle of territorial integrity. is not the only case in that respect. but as spain is a member of the european union spain is a member of the council of europe. spain should be committed to peaceful solutions. the e.u. has sat there referendum wasn't legal and didn't promise membership to catalonia as its supporting the dream but in light of the violence is it right for the e.u.
2:35 am
to be condoning such brutal tactics. is a huge it should condemn such. an acceptable behavior. of law enforcement agency of the central government. this was not helpful not not helpful for the position of the central government so i think the problem is that the whole and the. central government should apologize for the actions of god you'll see real and. central police units and that would open the power for for dialogue and for negotiations between the two parties and that which is so the spanish that has condemned the catalan authorities for placing themselves outside the law and democracy while backing the central government for
2:36 am
ensuring the constitutional order i mean in a way it's understandable he's in warner what else is going to say but wouldn't that be wiser for him to actually go neutral isn't one of spain yeah but wouldn't be wiser in this situation to actually be more natural and calm things down i mean look at queen elizabeth the england was a lot more careful in a similar situation giving audience to the scottish first minister making very careful call and even though she was always late and there's a little old central sort it is in spain including the king the prime least of cause the parliament or the socialist opposition should be very mind that. the way i would have wanted to defend the territory integrity was supporting . the call for independence of oneself to diminish and. so we should go
2:37 am
a step back and trying. to find common way out to how to deal with the issue of of the cut alone people cattle and politicians have called on the e.u. to mediate but weisel so has said that the whole thing is a spanish internal matter why not help out a fellow member state in trouble why not help mediate i wouldn't say that full internal matter of the force used by the spanish police of was in my view clear violation of human rights and this is never. an internal matter this is a european matter and human rights are violated. what do you think are the consequences of the catalan vote for the european union. that there are no you know immediate consequences of to catalonia vote and if you deal
2:38 am
seriously with the legal correct of the referendum. it cannot be taken as the position of the majority of the had along people of partly because of the actions of a central government which complicated by loads it confiscated ballot boxes that said to a set of which closed down polling stations. it's a difficult situation. and. that the solution is not a legal one the solution is a political one and and there must be the political will of course sides of spanish government and of the catalonian government. to sit still. and to find solutions this is my final statement to take
2:39 am
a short break right now when we're back we'll continue discussing today with the question of the copula referendum on the rest of you and other challenges to block is facing states. economic development is all about really pleased to report in this quarter we are one hundred six point. but what do we know about the other
2:40 am
figures. when i think about the fact that our c.e.o. might do. over twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart is says he had. with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. is that just how a free market works. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine hundred eighty to the point now where people are. just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly devoid society. supportive of the government try to do. might be making things worse. the i say this is not how couples from work this is our capitalism goes hopelessly
2:41 am
disastrously wrong. with lawmakers manufactured consent instead of public wealth. when the right wing closest to protect themselves. with the crime and clear your own lives is only the woman has a job. to ignore middle of the room signals. dilute the real news is really the world. despite all the efforts of the central banks to kill the economy by keeping bankers solvent when they should have been declared bankrupt years ago the index is showing that interest rates are going to go higher this means two things number one property market's going to crash and number two bond market's going to crash.
2:42 am
about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters in mind it's consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that means to. it's make.
2:43 am
or wrap with walter schwimmer former secretary general of the council of europe and co-founder of dialogue of civilizations research institute discussing the recent capital a referendum on independence in the context of use present challenges mr shrum or the e.u. has also other issues right now the title refugees and migrants into europe has been put under some control for now but what is happening to those who are already in how is during the gratian going. the the refugee can rise is if you want if you want to call it that way. has to measure perspectives one is the control of the outer borders of the european union which
2:44 am
has to be enforced. if the union wants to be strong it must be possible for for it's to control the outside the borders of otherwise she would not function. and as specs those threats which she cries is is there's a lego solidarity between the european union and it's clear that future the geographical situation of. mainly greece and it's a leave. involved in the refugee wave from the middle east and from africa and on the other hand the more wealthy countries from sweden the lens you have body austria you go because. people when moving to europe understandable it wants to go to a place but up at a living conditions. but the rights to asylum in the right if used to speak
2:45 am
about relief which it is because they are if which is of coming from conflict areas and there are economic migrants who wants just to have a better life in europe where it will do your room you can european union has to deal with all these aspects yes but and it's must insist on solidarity of all european countries with those countries who have targeted by the wave of refugees but what is happening is no doubt separable that for example a large country poland which your benefits from you membership are refusing to take refugees but what's happening to the refugees that are already inside here up how is their integration going those who have to rights to stay in europe that.
2:46 am
granted asylum. or i was warm will be for me better in the reasons except it as residents of the european countries they have to be integrated and this is not the one way street. the the governments regional governments local governments have to offer the opportunities for integration but people has also be ready for integration we have in austria just in our people discussion because some radical islamic movements are against integration of. muslims who came to australia i was i'm favor i was a helping i was i want to be integrated so. it is also a cutie of migrants and refugees. to contribute to the only to gratian learning
2:47 am
the language of the country where they live accepting their way of living living in this country is accepting equal rights for men and women for example that's a clear request but what do you think is going to happen to those tens of thousands of people who got even are they going to end up settling in ghettos like in paris and other major cities no one should one should try to avoid. ghettos and also not a solution. so integration integration into the labor market integration into society is a must when we want to have these full communities peaceful societies in the future can the bans on work us like the one in australia actually work to integrate people
2:48 am
into european societies or instead enraged them by forcing to give up on there is precious a sick it's a sick it's a signal it's a signal it's a signal that it's not directed helping of course but is a signal. to the migrants. if you want to leave here if you want to stay for ever in europe if you want to stay for ever in germany in austria france or in the sweden you have to accept the way of life of. the relevant society and work is of course. transplanting outstate it back to me how society to europe and is not acceptable and therefore. it's not a problem of messes it's but it's a signal to the migrants you want to stay here you have to
2:49 am
integrate but what if that signal eliminates those migrants it would further away or forces them to radicalize a bit more would you hear that say no problem there i don't i don't think so and it's biased by far not the majority not even most of their own minority of migrants who want to force their wives over the poor come. so i think it's a clear division line between the majority who is willing to integrate and the minority wants to establish a parallel society which is unacceptable do you feel like there is any other way to make fame migrants integrate into the european society without asking them to give up on their traditions if traditions are
2:50 am
clearly against european traditions they have to decide whether they want to stay in europe and do accept the european way of life or at the end they have to go back to desert scientists. but they also know in movement look to saudi arabia. to come bring some of no women who drive cars i think. that's a good sign and i think what is happening in their own societies. should be thinking into the consideration those of been living in the european country. the rise of the right in europe is directly connected to their refugee influx do you see a danger here they hate move passion is this leading to politics that is more intolerant than usual if integration is
2:51 am
rejected by certain groups of migrants that could. leads to such a situation but that we have to avoid it therefore we have to inhance all measures for successful integration. so there is no repercussion on the european society itself here is now saying terror acts are completely new nature not a tax vehicles being used as weapons a lone wolf attacks as well as a spike in violence aimed at refugees goes both ways attacks on camps and homes and a vigil assaults what's happening why is the continent becoming infiltrated with violence. first of all i would not blame the migrants or effort use for the situation this has other root causes it's the export of ideas
2:52 am
simply in principle seems to be defeated in its own region and now tries to bring. new people day schmaltz the war to euro. but that means only that there should be more european cooperation more common fight against terrorists. change of information etc etc i think it's possible and we should not be afraid of this terrorism. you know us as minister for foreign affairs and integration sebastian cortes sad immigration is changing austria not in a positive but in a negative way would you agree with this statement. no i would want i want to do we think so for. me the very successful integration. some problems. some problems. for example brought
2:53 am
into austria by the moms who are not part of also muslim society but paid from a borrowed. yours to be on low on the islam is for beating financing from abroad overreaches communities so as ingrid we have started taking the right positions and. we will succeed in that way the netherlands germany belgium swit and austria that will have been considering the idea of creating a mini shang game zone to better guard their external borders and stem the flow of refugees france and germany have been discussing multi-speed integration for the e.u. even the unity is a bit of a danger here our members going to drift away from each other. yes i don't on the don't support such. tendencies and initiatives. the solution
2:54 am
is a better control of the outside borders of the out of borders of the european union and not to exclude european countries from european integration you're taking part in the dialogue of civilizations for a long road a silent where the focus on multiple already in regional and global developments but today it seems like people want instant solutions and a lot more than a dialogue calling for patients and dialogue is i dare say i mean boring how do you change that. yeah of course nihilo his very often more cumbersome way but the best way. if we want to achieve what is the vision of the of majority of people who live in peace to enjoy prosperity and to prepare a better future for the children and grandchildren there are no instant solutions.
2:55 am
no violence illusions there's only the way to explore how we can live together and solve to get all these problems and this is still the major achievement of the european union and the council of europe that european countries came together to solve such questions to give a. mr treuer thank you for being with us today we were talking to walter schwimmer former secretary general of the council of europe and co-founder of dialogue of civilizations research institute about their recent independence referendum in catalonia and the impact it will have on spain and the rest of europe that's it for this edition of sophie and co i'll see you next time. you're welcome.
2:56 am
is this the first woman on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest. truth to stand this is just the right questions. the right answer. question. americans are constantly warned about the threat of terrorism terrorism is very real and very deadly however terrorism is not the primary killer in america americans are the gun debate is important but why is
2:57 am
america so bored. it's taken these children's hopes. now it's threatens to take their future. could erupt again at any time. most people have a stark choice. live in poverty. following a different road. and soon we. hope for a better. los
2:58 am
angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in it's been a struggle. this man found his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the authorities accept such. a tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution. to someone wanted touring the site otherwise it'll be a free for all they're
2:59 am
a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. despite all the efforts of the central banks to kill the economy by keeping bankers solvent well they should have been declared bankrupt years ago the index is showing that interest rates are going to go higher this means two things number one property market's going to crash and number two bond markets going to crash at. least.
3:00 am
be. headlining this hour u.s. authorities are putting unprecedented pressure on the. networks chief. influence the presidential election despite ruling out any impact on the. division in spain intensifies as pro unity and pro independence demonstrators rally. madrid's boosting support for the national police in the breakaway region. from smoke set to approve a new terror which critics say essentially puts the country in a permanent state of emergency.
