the americans. we are apparently better than. the sea diver heard of redacted the night president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail. i. i space constitutional crisis hits boiling point as catalonia proclaims independence moves into cyclic government and sees direct control. also this saturday a top u.s. senator demands that twitter disclosures account data from wiki leaks groups linked to it the social networks to testify before congress in the ongoing investigation into alleged russian meddling in the presidential election. protests mother french president visit to an impoverished south american territory after he rules out state aid saying he's not father christmas.
eleven am saturday morning welcome this is r.t. live from age to moscow with me kevin now in this hour starting the big story this is still brewing in europe overnight the big development to tell you about the crisis over independence in spain has literally reached breaking point the latest is this morning the spanish prime minister's been sacked catalan government now has gone as well and put the deputy prime minister in charge local police powers have been revoked and the force purged of pro independence offices asop elections due to be held in december on friday catalonia finally declared its independence almost a month from its controversial referendum and that opened up some very clear divisions in the country today in parliament the parliament of our country a legitimate parliament to come largely expected step and largely for four step.
citizens of cats or any other comes a time when it is up to all of us to maintain the pulse of our country our peace our civic duty and dignity as we have always done and always will without any doubt was was without was. the. fishies there but here we decided to sack the president vice president and other high ranking officials in the council on government was
it was was was was so total a seventy lawmakers in the catalan government voted in favor of secession ten were against two abstained in protest. in barcelona with the latest. when the announcement came that category would be an independent republic i can honestly say as never seen anything like it julie's x. to see people screaming yes or c. as it is in catalan and spanish at that announcement and many people said that this was a historic day that not just themselves but previous generations their families their parents and their grandparents had been waiting for is very exciting this moment and the day started got a moment for us after years and years and years and years dreaming about leaving the spring which is not to them across it we are finally in catalonia as
a new member of the international community as a republic a good feeling to. do so that. peaceful people can win. by all and all our lives are our parents grandparents they are waiting for this thing well it's been quite incredible and a moving feast throughout the day while people are still celebrating in the streets apostle and through that declaration of independence senators in madrid actually passed article one fifty five not very much longer off to that declaration is independence that allows the government in the majority to take back control over catalonia and as we've been hearing thick and fast from the spanish prime minister tonight that that means he says he has sucked the catalan government he's cool to snap elections. spanish flags have been removed from official buildings in catalonia injure rohner
a crowd cheered outside city hall is that been taken down but despite a majority of council and employees backing the move to break away some still feel strongly opposed. stop being a part of spain because the spanish government will act immediately to reestablish institutional normality but i still think this is the darkest day in. the history of catalonia. i think mr moore is playing a very very dangerous game and he is only incurring the wrath of a madrid government that has already shorn a propensity to unleash violence against unarmed civilians so it's a very very dangerous path that mr pollution said as is the path so that said by the madrid government mr hawley has bungled this issue from the very beginning yes the spanish constitution is inviolable but when that constitution is used as justification for the body of more careful helmeted riot police against unarmed civilians the constitution is not worth the paper it is written on we have what
here are two sides both under pressure of manuel roy has created in spain a mass spanish nationalist movements which is not below him to back off and there's this popular movement you've been seeing on the streets of barcelona and throat cancer world you know which has been pushing for independence and is going to keep pushing those people are not going to go back to the jury can't go back in the bottle in my belief really they have left spain and it's difficult to see what spain can do to force them back in you know occupy it with military force or whatever not like twenty four centuries so it's very difficult although i think this is going to play out for some months i don't see at the end really if people have to say it's a we how you can force them to come back so just to recap the top line again this spanish prime minister the catalan governor has put the deputy prime minister in charge it's had a lot of headlines this morning the broader reaction from around the world let me
tell you that there's been overwhelming support for madrid and warnings about similar independence pushes in the european union and all the dangers of it and this is it looks at who is and who isn't backing a united spain. there's plenty of reaction coming in given these major developments happening in catalonia albeit with very few surprises we have heard from the president of the european council donald to school has said that nothing changes and that the e.u. will continue to speak directly with madrid we've seen reaction from germany of course the german government said they do not recognize this unilateral declaration of independence we've heard from of course the french president also showing his support and full support to the spanish prime minister mariano rajoy here in the u.k. of course also plenty of reaction we've heard from downing street saying the does not and will not recognize the unilateral declaration of independence because this vote the referendum on october first was deemed illegal by spanish courts that was
a reaction from to recent votes from scotland's nicolas sturgeon we have seen a reaction of seeing the people of catalonia should have the ability to determine their own future so supporting what has happened in catalonia given scotland's own sort of plight when it comes to this issue we've heard from the u.s. as well the u.s. state department has the support keeping strong and united spain together also similarly from nato so as all of these reactions are continuing to come in it's important to really remember that despite the fact that political leaders throughout the european union have consistently said they don't want catalonia to break away from spain to really keep the european union and tax the pro independence movement in catalonia has repeatedly said that despite the fact that they want to leave spain they don't necessarily want to leave the european union whereas throughout the year we've heard them say that if catalonia doesn't fact leave spain they're going to have to essentially get at the back of the line to get
back into the european union we've spoken to you can depend is probably a repeat david coburn he believes madrid's decision initially came from brussels as the e.u. looks to tell you its grip all member states. i know but from chatting with present younker i spoke with a couple of weeks ago the european union have no intention of interfering in spanish affairs internal affairs i think they've now got the idea with the problems though taking part in spain that maybe is for a good idea of the actually key posts of internal figures of the various countries because it's just a farce that many other countries in europe who have problems with the central administration spain doesn't govern itself anymore it's governed by the european union decisions along get me to madrid they're made in brussels maybe the city is the european union has brought this to a head it's not just speed it didn't get sick brain problems with the boxy in the front of the. flood walls in belgium and various parts of europe but there are
problems people want to secede. because people don't want to be ruled by faceless bureaucracy in brussels they want to make their own decisions locally and then have a national government as well catalan years of the richest well the richer parts of spain so that they are that's why they're feeling very upset we're going to stand across all the moves the mood the reactions wrote today is going to more of in the coming hours to spain and the e.u. indeed enters what are uncharted waters with this independence crisis. next a senior u.s. senator is demanding that twitter disclose his account details relating to wiki leaks and his founder julian assange including releasing direct message conversations dianne feinstein's lady's name she's listed her demands in
a letter to founder and c.e.o. jack dorsey it's a pretty big list well here it is let's take a look at a few of her demands should we first of all she wants to know whether twitter has identified the accounts. linked to the alleged russian meddling investigation and its methods for doing so and of course a request like this couldn't go with the so-called propaganda bullhorn sees twitter accounts being mentioned they're also under suspicion but back to wiki leaks here's a list of some of the accounts linked to it there they are the senate thinks their message history could prove vital to this investigation kalam opens gold more. feinstein the u.s. senator from california is requesting that the direct messages on twitter sent by wiki leaks be turned over and given to the congress for their investigation you know they're asking for the direct messages of wiki leaks the direct messages of julian a songe as well as the direct messages of the hacker known as good for to who is
reported to have been the person who turned over the e-mails of the democratic national committee to to wiki leaks now it's important to note that dianne feinstein who's requesting these direct messages on behalf of congress that she is certainly no fan of julian aside and this is what she said about julian assange in the past well mr sun just one of my most unfavorite people in the world i believe he's done a great discredit to this nation now dianne feinstein is not the only figure within the us political establishment who has voiced opposition and hatred for julian assad and many figures within the u.s. government many senators congressmen leaders of the military have spoken of julia songe accused him of being a russian agent called for prosecution of julian assange called for wiki leaks to be shut down this is a widespread sentiment in washington d.c. i mean he's a tool of russian intelligence and if he's such
a you know martyr of free speech why doesn't wiki leaks ever publish anything coming out of russia you should be treated as an enemy combatant we should be closed down permanently and decides we wiki leaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia ignorance or misplaced idealism is no longer an acceptable excuse for lionizing these demons saunders a narcissist who has created nothing of value here lies on the dirty work of others to make himself famous he is a fraud a coward hiding behind a screen disguise a traitor a treasonous and i'm not for the death penalty so if i'm not for the death penalty i want to do it. illegally shoot the son of a as we know on november first the owners of twitter will be testifying before the u.s. congress and this is all part of the investigation of alleged russian meddling in the us presidential elections in twenty sixteen and now we see this additional requests to being given to twitter just a few days before they're set to testify so one wonders is any new information
going to be determined from these direct messages or is this the government of the united states in particular the congressional committee putting additional pressure on twitter in the lead up to their testimony investigative journalist david lindorff believe the sentence is requests violates free speech. there is no indication that wiki leaks is a tool of russia wiki leaks has been major source for american journalism and british journalism for a long time but feinstein's trying to imply that we cue leaks is somehow in league with this alleged russian effort to swing the election in the united states in two thousand and sixteen even if you took the worst case scenario and you said that russia was behind an effort to get people's perspectives about one candidate or the another in the election that is not right so to me and that is
private communications on twitter when there isn't any criminality being even alleged is over the top and a terrible threat to first amendment rights in the united states coming up present my chrome says he's no father christmas that he won't be bearing gifts from the state as he visits french guyana more ahead. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us and i think it's. the only show i go out of my way to times you know we want. john oliver of. better than. ever heard of. the world bank.
there was a transition away from public housing and government assisted. states . across the country and the. gentrification under the current. socialist. underwriting property but not for the poor people they do it for the. french president's visit to. south america has been met with violent protests people arrested two police officers and discussions with groups against trip. the
demonstrations against mccrone came after he said he would not be giving additional funding to the impoverished region explained he wasn't father christmas on twitter some french politicians were far from impressed by the president's comment we spoke to the chief of the people magazine the. is very sure of himself in a bit of good to you showed it recently in we are saying that he's not santa claus the people who are poor and have problems but he did it also in france recently using words that i wouldn't use on on the new scene or but very vulgar the french left or right it's not a matter of politics consider him as out of control ie now after several cases like that the government of course should not give away public money without really looking at what they do he was right in saying of course that a lot of money's being spent and we are not that that are real problems but it's
not a recent to to show with his exasperate not to show his northerns at the fact that people come back with their own problems so in this case now it's small or the unpleasantness of seeing the elite. talk talking count in a condescending way to the people present micron's made a series of other remarks of not so well in the past let's briefly remind ourselves about the. i will be absolutely i will not anyway.
remember to. cross britain but instead of celebrating the great pinpointing locations of the police. this project was launched of the london bookstore often used by groups who'd been infiltrated by the so-called. they won't complain. from nine hundred fifty nine until two thousand and eight. different groups and human rights organizations. entering relationships with trust while working
undercover. to compensate some victims and apologize for the. still continue and they want more explanation but i haven't got yet is any information not one single scrap of detail about why these people were targeting them why they had their life to this extent and why they found themselves some. once in an intimate relationship with somebody who is being paid to spy on them the reason i feel for it sees to spy on the left in general is because they consider the left a friend's who. purportedly. against national security we don't actually know whether they still live for taking in but a day they continue to do that and of course there is now the digital spy the. there's the digital spy jester eavesdropping the big data stuff so david you may
say that they maybe don't need it anymore but i do think they're still doing. a billionaire founder of a drug company has been arrested for his alleged role in persuading doctors to miss prescribe patients a really strong opioid painkiller john kapoor's been charged with bribery racketeering and fraud and the highly addictive medication is part of a nationwide crisis in the u.s. right now the main component of this synthetic painkiller is called fenton il it's only supposed to be prescribed to patients in really severe pain from cancer is one hundred times stronger the morphine hugely strong stuff this case is of the drug reportedly being myspace cried and given to non cancer patients to was brought to light by one of compos former employees. i knew there was something going on there i started doing some research i realized that i wasn't there to help people that i was actually hurting people medical workers have leaked similar schemes of
distributing illegal drugs in the past but it's rare that those implicated go right to the very top of the major drug companies lawyer has however said his client vigorously denies any involvement but for the white spokes person to believe such abuse is widespread practice in the industry this is vast it is a vast conspiracy in each company the same as it's a backhoe lobby did for so many years and got away with it it's not a matter of regulations it's a matter of and force mint and the lack of will for enforcement they have let these companies and the doctors who illegally prescribe the drugs that are supposed to be just for severe cancer and they get everybody else addicted it's not even just a matter of the of the suffering because some of the addicted people like getting high it's a matter of it's illegal and dangerous what they're doing and yes there is in force
meant a lot of hard news updates around the clock from us also check dot com facebook twitter loads of ways to keep across the latest from the international here most of this saturday morning is kevin zero in though for now with the time coming up to exactly twenty three minutes past the let's say good morning she would be weekends going to. the cold war hard sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles. that you saw spreading so you can be gossip the public. has been telling you pull it out by product. of the hall that we all. want.
after don t. we're going on the run is u.k. shadow home secretary diane abbott speaks out against tory cuts brought on to bail out the city of london the labor assembly against austerity today coming up on the show how dangerous is u.k. foreign minister boris johnson as jim just in the pentagon leads a delegation to korea we also would enjoin this dr gary porter about the perils of potential british backing for a trump nuclear war in asia and we speak to fashion icon vivienne westwood who
along with a nine year old boy could find themselves going to jail for opposing fracking in britain plus all sorts of curious finger gestures are being deployed each trying to do better in terms of eccentricity possibly of prowess what little that's happened in this week's u.k. pm queues all the more going on today is going underground but first apart from this week's british economic growth figures which contradicted pre-breakfast referendum city of london predictions there were also figures out from weapons company boeing that's boeing recently slammed by u.k. pm theresa may on its sale in relation to coles we have a long term partnership with boeing various aspects of government and this is not the sort of behavior we expect from a long term partner who's undermines that partnership the pm talking the next goldman sachs remain a mock colony of the bank of england but of course what she was referring to was boeing trying to destroy the canadian company of the eight just like us companies allegedly helped thwart this project overseen by the mentor of president u.k.
labor leader jeremy corbin i'm here to join with the people who build the. in this fight knowing now that the sixty eight are going to be built in the introduction of mission that surely would come to a supersonic u.k. french concorde would be more bold thanks to companies such as lockheed allegedly lobbying the us government to prevent it flying to los angeles so that the plane could never fully make its money back there were other reasons but either way new york has never have since been three and a half hours away from london this time around bomb body and all its jobs in northern ireland appear to have been rescued by air bus a company that boeing as a lot to say about on its website the biggest tree dispute between the united states and europe has been about the european practice called launching some what exactly is smart she is taxpayer money the governments of france germany the united kingdom and spain to airbus every time it wants to develop a new airplane model because boeing doesn't get any money for its weapons programs from the u.s.
taxpayer right in fact this week's boeing results are arguably a testament to state subsidy which makes for a circular argument many more aerospace workers are employed by boeing in the u.k. the body able to raise a may need to bone body age and maintain relations with her coalition partners the former paramilitary link one body claims it makes up ten percent of northern irish exports someone pretty knowledgeable about for what causes britain uses its weapons whether british or american is britain's foreign secretary and he's telling u.k. politicians not to come on this show despite his own father appearing and he continues to call out the government in syria for the alleged use of w m d well joining me now to help us is award winning journalist dr gareth porter who is by the white house in washington d.c. garrett welcome back to going underground so foreign secretary boris johnson here in britain has been in between telling politicians not to appear on this network r.t. has said yet again definitely syria used chemical weapons what have you been discovering
about this illiterate chemical weapon used by the. well i decided to commit several weeks a number of weeks to doing my best to piece together a coherent sense of what happened there and what i did really conclude very firmly is that the official viewpoint that there was a saron attack by the assad air force in country couldn't simply could not have been the case because primarily they couldn't come up with the parts of a weapon that should have been there right at the alleged site of this attack which was a crater or a hole in the middle of the road and they admit they have nothing they they can't come up with any explanation for that and until they come up with an explanation one has to try to come up with a different understanding of what happened there and i did provide an alternative understanding based on
a pretty serious investigation of all the facts that have come to light we don't have really time to go into the details of that but basically there is a lot of evidence that the syrian air force did bomb the. a a house in country corn which was not that far from the site of the of the alleged point of impact of a sarin bomb but but several hundred yards a few hundred yards away and that that released an agricultural chemical which then caused fos feen to be released into the air but that is consistent with basically the symptoms and signs that were exhibited by victims in the city so so that that's the substance of my story on on the country current affair so when the british foreign secretary boris johnson speaks here all when officials are on that lawn behind you speak.
