really regret having gone the neo liberal route any possibility that the poverty created by mere liberalism the ongoing austerity may mark a return to the sort of extreme violence advocated by nelson mandela well yes now mandela very specifically when he turned from the nonviolent mass struggle in the early sixty's was directing targeted sabotage against the facilities of oppression what we've seen since the roughly fifteen twenty years rising township protests where unfortunately many of the social activists in their communities have been so frustrated they've not only blockaded roads burned tires but they've taken on municipal buildings even burning libraries and schools these are tactics and they appear very violent and they appear that the townships are burning but i think actually the real danger to the system will come when they link up and develop a bigger political agenda we'll see if that happens on the far left the economic freedom fighters south african federation of trade unions a united front or whether it continues to be fragmented or sporadic and part of
8:01 pm
that will be whether cyril ramaphosa revives his old left wing heroic stance he was a great trade union leader and can put down these protests and promise them divide and conquer and that's a tradition of they and see they've done it well they may not be able to continue given the contradictions because of how drawn thank you after the break. sixty is the day that the campaign for nuclear disarmament was founded we speak to one of britain's great just fine on just peter can a lot about why his work for the organization is more relevant than ever and with london opening its doors in this season's fashion week iconic design a dame's on the roads suggests brooks it may be anything but machinable old civil coming up in part two i'm going on the ground. in america a college degree requires a great deal. paying

a decades long debt. studying so hard it requires trying to. go through humiliation to enter an elite society. and paci dead sometimes quite literally. want other true colors of universities in the u.s. . policies and as a way to practice is the pressure oppressive measures being deployed against the palestinian people everywhere around the set of colonialism the theft of all of the land and the many many can hope to stating things that they're coming it isn't doing of course they can cause an uprising. elliston is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos i'm in bill fiddlesticks mission to do it love me feel like you
8:03 pm
know that this isn't my cup of tea is going to study all mediated. notes on. a ship the only palestinians who gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think there's some of those who in the world under the location of no one who could give us a book and know it is all of us not as to how to display any of the most of the jihad i know if you continue muslims you know do more commitments also don't piss off. welcome back fashion as always arguably been political while channel gucci and boss proved their right wing good at jules why it's all broader in the west would have signalled and the imperialism and while old fashioned except the tour finds itself under scrutiny over labor practices this week london fashion week contends with a britain about to depending. when your brakes adwords expand into the wider world
8:04 pm
or retreat into homespun isolationism joining me now is james andrea rhodes who is dressed everyone from princess diana and jackie onassis to elizabeth taylor and freddie mercury in this year's london fashion week festival on the twenty second of february so under thanks so much for coming on so i first of all here just tell me about the festival which is slightly separate a lot of fashion well i think it's to give a lovely continuation no i mean everyone does the pressure wave and then everyone rushes off just to give it give us a little more atmosphere here in london i think it's a great idea ok well i just said the couture norgate insult after a bad labor practices thanks to the seamstress unions and so on can mass fashion really ever be good for worker rights alone. the environment it's a very difficult subject because if you're talking about mass fashion you're always going to be talking about cutting costs and how you make things less expensive i mean i think worldwide we've always all got to think about how we can make out
8:05 pm
clothes last longer not always because of the what's happening to the atmosphere but why should we always have to have new new new you've been seeing things like this arguably for maybe not quite as long as prince charles has been saying similar things that people street which have your that initiative happen before the run of blows a disaster in bangladesh implicating a prime or madeleine l'engle monsoon wal-mart which killed or injured three thousand six hundred people i mean i went over there with people trade interviewed some of the people who'd actually been in that building it was quite terrifying really own experience i mean i don't know what we can do about it because people are still going to want to buy this economic uprise one sustainable but for mass fashion that could be it could destroy itself what do you think about with the brics it may spell. challenging times for fashion coming from this guy i can't bear to think that it i did not practice it like. kept hoping that they'd say well we
8:06 pm
made a mistake let's do another vote in the mean time that's what's happened and we'll have to wait and see what happens i mean what does it mean for london fashion designers or fashion designers or the rest don't yet know do way i mean we're all going to continue to do sawin is possible that it's going to be more difficult for those of us the going to show in italy or from us and it might be a bit easier if you're sharing in the rest of the world but i really don't feel we can predict anything we have to now wait and see what really does happen but it could be a bright or is johnson that future of london beijing shanghai i had a choice anyway i do really i mean considering there was a joy old british people and you know virtual sadness already of a brother. but i mean we we all where we're going to keep deciding where are all going to take designing somehow and i do think this country attracts talent breeds talent and we have wonderful art colleges that i think there are people still going
8:07 pm
to come here and we're just going to have to wait and see what really happens in reality even if it could be a russian plot the referendum or i know you spoke in the past about whether the russians got trump elected. well it might they might ask him because you've reported he got a bust of putin let me put it oh i do i've got a bill is passed in fact i did a show we did in russia and one of my russian friends came off and gave me this wonderful money box uprooted and we painted him up and he did so he's golden all sorts of bright colors and he sits in my studio he's very happy that he doesn't live that has not yet. worries that fashion associates with politics i mean i said in the intro there about how when she fell about and see aga's about fascism in spain the real seller or support of the left in paris. was as you were the left what is it about fashion. well i mean at the moment in the
8:08 pm
fashion textile museum that i founded we've just opened an exhibition on statement t. shirts so we've got wonderful vivienne westwood one mommy breasts and all the different statements so i think you've got the fashion that i was of course exactly and you're going to have them making less statements and that's what some people want to wear and then i've got mine that are a different kind of statement i wear and i should just that when it comes to grown from the cost of training in fashion any concerns you've heard about increasing cost putting people off from entering the fashion world given that britain is famous also for working class fashion designers i think this is going to be room for everyone i mean i just think that what's going to really happen is instead of things being bought fashion you're going to find that there might be more and more small things in communities one hopes that instead of always being focused on london or scotland or island you're going to have small individual communities
8:09 pm
aren't necessarily making both fashion but making a step this statement of their own i think that's a possibility to even the things are so cheap now on the street arguably if you can just for inflation you can buy and throw away for i find it was terribly sad thinking that people would buy and throw away i hope it would be more like bar i get tired of it i rework it or pass it on there is other roads thank you pleasure. well it certainly fashionable in nato nations now to express just say at the state of international relations the doomsday clock is no closer to nuclear armageddon than it's ever been arguably in part because donald trump's finger is poised over the red button that not only controls billions of dollars of u.s. nuclear weaponry but britons as well sixty years ago today the campaign for nuclear disarmament was founded and the image is an argument sport. fourth of its early
8:10 pm
years are arguably just as relevant as they were then deputy editor sebastian packer went to speak to c.m.d. as general secretary kate hudson and artist peter kenyon odd who has been working with the campaign for nuclear disarmament for nearly forty years. about nuclear weapons because really in hiroshima i was seeing the suffering the horror of. that we've got to imagine the into our own environment we've got to imagine it as what could happen across the world unless we do something about it. well we say that c.n.d. is one of britain's most enduring mass movements it was founded in one nine hundred fifty eight in the midst of absolutely enormous public concern about nuclear weapons so the first demonstration took place in one nine hundred fifty eight the
8:11 pm
first mass meeting which found its c.n.d. took place on the seventeenth of february nine hundred fifty eight so sixty years ago today the first meeting had about five thousand people attending it and from then it was on from strength to strength hundreds of thousands of people became involved over the next few years demonstrations protests protests that basis sit downs in westminster you name it that was taking place i saw it working c.n.d. i think it was seventy nine and it was when cruise missiles it was announced that we're going to come to greenham common and most were us. went to see andy and this was in seventy nine they were very small organization i remember a time in a room i think you know. and. everyone was just about. people just sitting on the floor from one port casey. when i was tiny as an artist i what i
8:12 pm
didn't want to see in my studio you know waiting for the muse to descend i wanted to actually get involved in things so the first one i did was the broken missile with the c. and d. symbol and they're all made very crudely i actually went to hamlet which is the big toy shop and they seem to have a guided missile department for ten year olds so i bought some plastic missiles and then smashed them up with them photograph them so the actual original is crude which i live and then that was used by seeing the. posters at the time. we had the big marches in the beginning of the eighty's suddenly. escalated it suddenly had quarter of a million members. norma's demonstrations. cruise missiles. in the arrival of cruise missiles was the turning point. for cindy in terms of
8:13 pm
people's involvement today our government saying that they wanted to replace trident nuclear weapons system our nuclear weapon system vos costs so massive popular opposition to that the overwhelming majority of people would draw up a spend that money on on health on social care education jobs homes and so on and spending it on weapons of mass destruction it was very shocking for everyone i think to see last week the report that the homeless person who had died just in the proximity of the houses of parliament from coal sleeping rough in the street there's no there's no rational explanation i think for ordinary decent people which is the overwhelming majority of people here and elsewhere it's just inconceivable that people would choose people in power would choose to spend our hard to taxpayers' money. on weapons of mass destruction that can kill millions of people
8:14 pm
rather than spending it on ensuring people's needs are met put people in the twenty first century should dari on the streets of london close to parliament it is just unbelievable we need media reorientation of our national priorities and i believe the people as a whole the majority of the people share those common values with us this is a normal human concern. it's the government that's out of step it's the political elite that's out of step the government didn't actually want anyone to see the realities of it they didn't want nuclear weapons to be connected to the horrors of russia of which. everyone knew about where they were they wanted to sort of make nuclear weapons were possible they were say a thing of something that's completely insane something that's completely.
8:15 pm
turned into something that every day that's what i've always been trying to town to with this that's what cindy is trying to counter to this sense that we can live with these things and it's quite so have them. and you know it isn't. going to just explode all over the. program. a couple years ago and to try to destroy it and you know we've still got we've got this. madness of the word spending. two hundred thirty billion on this reconditioning trident. each each missiles equal to thirty russia's i mean the madness of nuclear weapons gets more and more intense now with trump saying that we're going to make use of nuclear weapons and joking about the saudis but in all this you know you just can't believe it because nuclear weapons a minute they start going to blow up the world and they're in the hands of complete
8:16 pm
crazy weather and all crazy that power hungry maniacs. and so the imagery that i started by making in the eighty's is still as relevant and it's good that it's being used again but it's horrific that it needs to be used again it's a shame in many ways that we still have to use his image in new images against us that we still have to carry on sixty years on but the dangers are there the dangers to regain increasing in becoming grace us that we will continue to work with peter and to work with the hundreds of thousands of other really dedicated people across britain our partners internationally will carry on working together until nuclear weapons are finally abolished. one of britain's greatest artist peter cannot and c and his general secretary kate hudson talking to going on the ground deputy have just passed your packet and that's it for the show
8:17 pm
we're back on monday when we go to iraq to save the children office to ask about u.k. u.s. airstrikes are affecting their humanitarian work today jill that he doesn't actually you will see on monday one hundred five years to the day suffragettes fighting for female equality formed the house of u.k. charts of the exchequer david lloyd george. in twenty four. no bloody revolution of youtube clips the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful for the protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it just the lawyer i mean you are liz put video dream in the unable is that or are you still a needle of the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty fourteen. those who took the boat have invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. about
8:18 pm
your sudden passing i have only just learned you were a south and taken your last to bang turn. your at the top to you as 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 feeling started to change you talked about war like it was a game 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 need a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that

united states indicts thirteen russian national in connection with alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen election adding though that their supposed actions were in vain if they had no impact on the outcome there is no allegation in the indictment that the charge conduct alter the outcome of the twenty sixteen election. the indictments come as the f.b.i. is under heavy criticism even facing calls for the director's resignation of the bureau admitted they failed to react prior to wednesday's deadly school shooting in florida. and in the case of mistaken identity israeli soldiers stormed the house of a palestinian school teacher is left with severe scarring after being mauled by and on the dog.

8:22 pm
because meddling is not chargeable offense though i bet good money it soon will be the thirteen nationals and three entities have been indicted for first and foremost conspiracy to defraud the united states one of the main defendants is the st petersburg based internet research agency and their alleged goal was to sow discord in the u.s. political system namely the two thousand and sixteen presidential election funnily enough a catering company can also be found on the list of the accused apparently they were used at least partially to fund the whole scheme meanwhile the allegations have not been left on the answered with the russian foreign ministry spokesperson calling them absurd tens out there with thirteen of them according to the u.s. justice department fifteen people were meddling in the u.s. election against the billion dollar budgets of the intelligence agencies against the intelligence counted teligent against the state of the art technologies upset yes but this is america's move to put its call reality by the way why things he apparently that's the only number with bad associations announce that only hope the
8:23 pm
parties in question are said to formulate the plans to bolster donald trump and disparage hillary clinton using methods ranging from organizing political rallies to posing as grassroots groups but some of the tactics listed are questionable and one instance russians are said to have fun of the construction of a cage aboard a flatbed truck and then to have paid someone to wear a costume portraying clinton in a prison uniform to sit in it defense also allegedly purchased advertisements on facebook to promote a rally. titled support hillary save american muslims not sure how that fits in with the pro trump anti hillary agenda and let's not forget efforts claim to have been made on social media where the russians are meant to have use fake identities to push divisive hashtags and topics according to the document the fake accounts became the means to reach quote significant numbers of americans however when platforms like facebook and twitter were grilled about what part their companies may have played in the alleged meddling they testified that the influence was minimal. we determined that the number of accounts we could link to
8:24 pm
russia and that we're tweeting election related content was comparatively small. aggregate these ads and posts were a very small fraction of the overall content on facebook but any amount is too much . these videos mostly had low view counts. and it looks like at the end of the day all of those efforts were in vain at least according to the u.s.
8:25 pm
deputy attorney general there is no one elevation in the indictment that the charge conduct alter the outcome of the twenty sixteen election now this development came out of nowhere and something worth noting is that all the accused are private individuals and companies the indictment is silent when it comes to trump kremlin collusion the goal of the whole investigation. president reacted by tweeting that his campaign did nothing wrong by doubling down on accusations from russia began its alleged on to us campaign in twenty fourteen he added that that was before he even announced his presidential bid in a separate statement he called for bipartisan unity claiming to school to serve the goals of but that is like russia we discussed in done this with several experts who says just the timing of the documents released may be no coincidence is it beneficial for them all enough fridays and people have always thought that on a friday when this is done it'll absorb as much of the heat as possible
8:26 pm
but isn't that interesting i ask the question we had a shooting where the f.b.i. apparently and other law enforcement agencies were told repeatedly that this young man is exhibiting behavior which most probably is dangerous. one can only suspect whether that idea that the indictment was released today to take pressure off the f.b.i. i mean these indictments of course are prepared took a long time to prepare it could have been ready to go. for some time they could have held it there's no evidence for me to say that but i wouldn't rule that out i mean it's an interesting thought but they were going to maybe do it next monday and they pushed it up. the indictments come as the f.b.i. is under heavy criticism as you heard there of wednesday's deadly school shooting in florida this is after the bureau admitted it failed to react to prior to puffs
8:27 pm
on the danger posed by the gunman who killed seventeen people florida's governor has called on the f.b.i. director to resign over the fatal failure the f.b.i. says failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn't going to cause it and apology will never bring the seventeen floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain the families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need the f.b.i. director needs to resign earlier the law enforcement authorities admit it over the last few years they've had more than a dozen calls regarding the killer. we have uncovered at the broward sheriff's office that we've had approximately twenty calls for service over the last two years regarding the killer the f.b.i. has a term and the protocol was not followed. the information was not provided. in
8:28 pm
no further investigation was conducted that. in particular the f.b.i. had been given information about the attackers gun ownership and his social media posts decide to kill people erratic behavior and potential to conduct a school shooting were also flagged one of those who actually warned the security services about the suspect has spoken about what led him to raise the alarm september twenty fourth two thousand and seventeen i sent a screenshot of a comment on one of my videos you know this comment i'm going to be a professional school shooter and i knew that i couldn't just ignore that i hit the report but report it to youtube of course they remove the comment in then i tried to email it to their. shooting in parklane florida wednesday when
8:29 pm
a former student fatally shot seventeen people and injured a dozen more than one thousand year old suspect was detained by police on the day of the atrocity his case and how the f.b.i. failed to recognize the threat posed by him now being investigated on saturday hundred sink leading some survivors of that shooting gathered in the nearby florida city of fort lauderdale they condemned existing gun laws in the state and rallied against the national rifle association. meanwhile u.s. attorney general diffs sessions is now calling for an immediate review of the f.b.i. and the department of justice or does not the first deadly attack because potentially been avoided have more attention being paid to the pope and explains nicholas cruz isn't the only mass killer to be on the radar screen of the f.b.i. before conducting their crime all marma teen who shot up the post nightclub killing forty nine people in orlando florida was investigated by the f.b.i. twice before he committed his mass murder.
8:30 pm
turns out they deemed him not to be dangerous i don't forget about dylan rufe the self-proclaimed white supremacist who killed nine churchgoers in south carolina. well it turns out he was able to purchase his weapons because of errors in the f.b.i.'s background check process and then there's new dell hassan he shot up a u.s. military post in texas back in two thousand and nine. turns out the f.b.i. was fully aware that he was online in communication with top al qaeda leaders they still didn't bother to investigate i think we've seen time and time again over the last he is our intelligence agencies across the web.
