4:05 am
president mac. and you can probably hear even saying that at the moment you miss your call and that's calling for the resignation and the government itself must go on has spoken very little about these protests but he has said that he's going to make an announcement to choose day to trying to transition from people from soon diesel and petrol vehicles to hundreds maybe it's the logical vehicles but that's just not enough for the protesters they say it's too little too late what they want now is the complete change of the political system and the spear him fronts some experts are saying that there has been a new social movement like this in france since before the french revolution. looking like it's going to be a very turbulent saturday and paris charlotte it must be thanking. the british government is funding a large scale network to control political and public opinion about alleged malign russian activities now that's according to documents leaked by infamous hacker
4:06 am
group anonymous let's try and shut some light on the story with our correspondent stan. in secret it's funded from the federal budget and it seeks to property here and manipulate foreign governments no matter how far they are for all it's worth program integrity initiative sounds like a brainchild of russian intelligence especially given all the recent hype and hysteria around it except it isn't it's british at least according to a hacker group called anonymous which has published what it claims are classified documents from the u.k. foreign office through a london based and the u.k. government has allegedly been working with opinion makers all across europe to promote anti russian narratives an effective network is best achieved by forming in each european country a cluster of well informed people from the political military academic journalistic and think tanks fear's who can analyze examples of this information in their
4:07 am
country and inform decision makers and other interested parties about what is happening in clusters the key instrument of integrity initiative and a fairly powerful one as proven by the spanish cluster which has shown how the program gets things done back in twenty seventeen in the u.k. seemed surprisingly concerned with events playing out in spain's catalonia and london's keenness to see russia's hand in their bid for independence from spain so step one get public opinion on your side it's simple really you can write up a study yourself this close to produced a major study on russian influence in the catalan referendum process which was circulated privately to key influences in spain including the prime minister's office and throughout europe on the integrity initiative network step to feed the results of your research to the media its main means of influence is through academic papers and especially through articles written by independent journalists
4:08 am
in newspapers like el pais based on material provided anonymously by the cluster. is the most read spanish newspaper put out. right a number of independent pieces on catalan referendum some of them written by the man named as the head of the spanish cluster just take a moment for this information to sink in the leader of the cell designated with pushing a very specific message parts of an information secret service with a budget poses as an unbiased journalist in some of the most popular national newspapers that is what anonymous claimed to have revealed in its leak and the hackers claim it's not about one outlet the list of names in the spanish clusty includes writers and contributors to different media some even outside of spain peddling the same message and then it's step three sit back relax and enjoy the show you scripted. the u.k.
4:09 am
foreign office says that information about the project is actually publicly available and that it welcomes any published today that it gets meanwhile a source that russia's foreign ministry told us they're looking at the documents and are not surprised that the u.k. is allegedly carrying out such activities we also got reaction from one of the people featured in the documents released by the hackers. the documents prove no such thing i have not been paid by the institute but i applaud their work in dealing with the check his regime has put knishes information and influence operations the kremlin is losing russia bullying neighboring countries and murdering its critics why don't you investigate that the real risks of phobia instead of trying to smear people who are trying to resist the kleptocratic xenophobic incompetent hoodlums who make your wonderful country into an international pariah and we discussed that aspect of research phobia with columnist and political analyst georges i'm only. western countries are doing exactly
4:10 am
what they are accusing the the russians of doing i mean they are essentially waging a psychological propaganda war. directed at the russians what that should tell us is that we really should stop believing. all the various pronouncements of government ministers and the stories that constantly appear in the media russian there's russia did that russia's response above verse ruff is responsible for that because it's clear that this is all part of a. concerted campaign to manipulate public opinion. hillary clinton defended her suggestion that europe needs to curb mass immigration to prevent the election of populist leaders critics say it's hypocritical to fight populism with what looks like populism they also note that the refugee crisis was
4:11 am
imposed created by foreign military interventions as peter all of a now explains former us secretary of state and twenty sixteen presidential candidate hillary clinton has been having her say on the state of liberal democracy in europe she says the e.u. nations need to cap immigration if they're to halt the rise of the populace. i think europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lead the flying i admired the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taking europe must send a very clear message we're not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support if hillary clinton is correct and immigration is the root of the popularity of the populists and it's have a look it's where those refugees and migrants have come from and why they came to the european union well the top three nations of origin for asylum applicants to
4:12 am
the e.u. since twenty. fourteen syria iraq and afghanistan all of those countries that have been bombed or in some way to stabilize by the united states and their allies in nato. currently one of the main routes into europe for refugees and migrants is the dangerous mediterranean sea crossing from libya a nation that was plunged into chaos following the nato intervention that took place on mrs clinton's watch we came we saw he died. apparently politicians couldn't have forseen that people would start fleeing in their thousands since they were bringing democracy and a new promise for the future we are standing with the people of libya the. bank gets the. beat and get out of these domination of libya so freedom from developing country and when refugees did start arriving they told the europeans not to worry
4:13 am
those who flee means even more political oppression there we have the responsibility to help lambing the door on every syrian refugee that is just now we are the rise of populous parties is also a major concern for those at the very top of the e.u. tree liberal democracy has never been under such attack since the collapse of the soviet union it's all well and good for hillary clinton and like minded e.u. politicians to say that they are concerned about a rise of populism in the e.u. but when they say that the way to stop this is to clamp down on refugees and migrants it comes across as more than just a little bit hypocritical especially when they had a direct hand in making those people refugees in the first place she directly contributed to this rise in populism it was under her rule so to speak under the obama administration that libya was bombed into the stone age. as
4:14 am
supposedly to promote democracy and created a failed state is in direct effect from what she did in office. well if europe isn't just being told that migration is a bad idea plans for an e.u. army have also been criticized from across the pond in case you missed it takes a closer look at the french german idea of a european military force which has certainly upset washington. in case you missed it may european talking about building a bomb even get. to go wrong. and i know my brawn and the angle of knuckle have been breezy outlining their plans to dominate continental europe the french president declared that it's a friend said a german responsibility to prepare as the resounding of the euro i'm sure that the other twenty five union members have nothing to worry about i'm sure that the plan
4:15 am
much less nineteen thirty easy in the original french at least this time paris and berlin all working together the german chancellor she won't run in another election can finally say what she actually wants and she really wants a real true european army isn't it lovely how europeans have mature because no one is running their lives grieving to hearing a german leader say that well i want from britain we can't wait to get out and seeing eminem's plans of friends it may finally looks like a good idea of course looming in the room is a rather large numbers around a brother nato which has been in charge of making sure that europe doesn't hostility after itself for the past seventy years behind very specific to the part played by the dogs of the world does not like the sound of that your. drum
4:16 am
kits the need for his french kissing buddy rather well breaking out the classics you'd be speaking german if it wasn't for us. and britain will be idea of a european army to undermine nato grazie so why do we stand european nations don't like being told they morph a nation a say they plan a whole new army of their own which will cost more than outsourcing to the us marines i am usually the us once europe to do. to defend itself as long as it doesn't when you want to do it and britain moans about the threat to nato unity even one join just a pure peace and unity of these armies to fight anyway micron is worried about china russia and the us that that is a whole nother episode. coming up here on the program on
4:17 am
violent clashes between protesters and police on the streets of haiti's capital more people will give you the details a number. when gold make this manufacture consent to step into the public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the final merry go round lifts only the one percent. nor middle of the room sick. and this young the lying circumstances that's
4:18 am
a loud for these emergency of this very very good for violence i think that we may get the sons and even grandsons of guys at some point in the future it's primarily a political issue in iraq that has taken on the military. and army for cations. you can join us today a violent clashes between protesters and the police said until the government demos on the streets of haiti's capital had been more life in fact just a week of on rest is now seen and left and people killed and i. think.
4:19 am
i'm. going to get the job. done. police used tear gas after people started throwing rocks and molotov cocktails the demonstrators want the country's president to step down failure to investigate corruption and after a week of silence haiti's president has now said his office will investigate the accusations though insisting all the while the president will not be resigned. american lawmakers will investigate president responds to the death of journalist. for possible double standards when it comes to treating allies and enemies jamal khashoggi was killed in the saudi arabian consulate in istanbul last month riyadh has denied any awareness of the orchestrated killing and has launched an
4:20 am
investigation charging eleven officials. and investigates. no significant action will be taken against saudi arabia for the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi trump says they are significant allies so we have to give them a pass now many prominent democrats and republicans disagree the language that was used it was as if they were writing a press release for the saudi arabia not for the united states it is certainly testing the proposition that the enemy of our enemy is our friend our friends don't murder journalists but in response to his critics trump has a pretty solid rebuttal maybe the world should be held accountable because the world is a vicious bush and there you have it us middle east policy in a nutshell in order to maintain your allies put your moral principles aside it's not just saudi arabia back in twenty seventeen the u.s. secretary of state blocked all aid to egypt and since then they've admitted that
4:21 am
the human rights situation is getting even worse but now aid has started flowing once again and trump has had glowing words for president el-sisi relationship has never been stronger. we're working with egypt or these different fronts including the military and free agent whatever it is you can work or. we're going to be great and it's an honor to be with you. and how about qatar a long time u.s. ally that's not exactly a human rights paradise probably used to say that they were sponsoring terrorism the nation of. unfortunately has historically been a funder of terrorism. at a very high level the palestinian organization known as hamas designated by the u.s. state department as a terrorist organization is quite open about receiving qatari support however washington and doha are cozy we're working very well together and i think it's working out extremely well so amir thank you very much for being here. now the same
4:22 am
thing is true for nato member and long time u.s. ally turkey the usa hasn't stopped them from going after the kurds and u.s. allies in the fight against islamic state in syria so from the words of paul in a little flat yes please mr kurd we're trying to get along very well we do get along great with the kurds we're trying to help them a lot to great people and we have not forget we don't forget i don't forget what happens some day later but i can tell you that i don't forget these are great people ok for a long time it seemed like cable news had most americans convinced that foreign policy was about lofty ideals like spreading freedom and overturning dictators but it seems now that most americans realize that that's not the case at this point it seems pretty clear that u.s. foreign policy is about taking care of your friends no matter how shady they might be it does seem if
4:23 am
a critical in some ways that the united states preserves democracy promotion for its enemies but that has been the trend in the past it's still the most powerful country but it can't do what it used to do i mean nine hundred fifty three for example we were able to overthrow most adenike in the iranian government for three million dollars today we're spending billions of dollars on sanctions on trying to affirm up other countries and we have and we have not been succeeding in overthrowing the islamic republic and that's a sign of it is growing you know that there are other competitors out there. we are not robots that was the rallying cry of disaffected amazon employees across europe on black friday as they staged protests against what they describe as inhuman working conditions in the online retail giants warehouses and was on workers in the spanish capital demanded better conditions on salaries while over in
4:24 am
the united states they protested against plans to open new amazon headquarters demos were also held in france germany italy and the u.k. and won a trade union through its weight behind the protesters with the following video. and this. is on has over half a million employees worldwide including a quarter of a million in america the minimum wage it pays and now it's twelve dollars in europe and fifteen dollars in the u.s. the company recently increased its minimum wage in america after workers protested . now after the black friday protests amazon for its part denied its exploiting its workers saying that it provides a safe and positive workspace with competitive pay and benefits the labor rights lawyer told us imus on is susceptible to work and consume a pressure. p.c.
4:25 am
in the united states that because of bad publicity and some calls by people like senator bernie sanders amazon raised its wages to fifteen dollars an hour from about twelve dollars an hour so we see that they are amenable to pressure look it's a consumer oriented business and so particularly if consumers are willing to put pressure on them they will change their ways but also again people do care about working conditions of others in the pay of others and i think people realize in the bezel is making many many millions of dollars in these people or working in prison like conditions this is unacceptable. so animal rights activists have been accused of some rather woolly headed thinking of the coding for the englishtown of wool to be renamed apparently the name change would be an animal friendly thing to
4:26 am
do but not everyone is entirely convinced. and. with a simple main change huge can take a stand against cruelty and remind everyone that it's easy to see warmth and be warm hearted to sheep by choosing the good will. the a roof should remain as it is the idea of remaining the village is possibly ridiculous the most easy antico easy i have come across in a long time the name will has nothing to do we cheat it comes from deceptive the words bush spring.
4:27 am
