1:08 pm
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 fears who track and analyze examples of this information in their 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 curse to produce 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
1:09 pm
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 in newspapers like based on material provided anonymously by the cluster. of 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 part 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

1:12 pm
re clinton has claimed europe needs to curb mass immigration to prevent the election of populist leaders such as storm trump critics point to the fact the refugee crisis was in part created by foreign interventions by the us and its allies peter all of explains. former u.s. 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 populists 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 taken 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 populace let's have a look it's where those refugees and migrants have come from and why they came to
1:13 pm
the european union well the top three nations of origin for asylum applications to 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 yes the relief anybody and get out his domination of libya so freedom can develop his
1:14 pm
country and when refugees did start arriving they told europeans not to worry those who flee musically a war 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
1:15 pm
under the environmentalist ration that libya was bombed into the stone age. supposedly to promote democracy and created a failed state is in direct effect from what she did in office of europe isn't just being told that migration it's a bad idea plans for an e.u. army have also been criticized from across the pond but it takes a closer look at the french german idea of a european military force which has ruffled washington's for. in case you missed it the europeans talking about building a bomb even get. to go wrong. and i know my own and the angle of not will have been breezily outlining their plans to dominate continental europe the french president declared that it safe friends that a german responsibility to prepare has the reef founding of europe i'm sure that
1:16 pm
the other twenty five union members have nothing to worry about i'm sure that the plan much less nineteen thirty z. 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 was a real true european army isn't it lovely how europeans have mature because no one is reading the labels grieving to hearing a german leader say that well i want from grissom who can't wait to get out and seeing eminem's plans friends it may finally look 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
1:17 pm
played by the dalton of the world does not like the sound of it you're. trying to kid spin from his french kissing buddy rather well breaking out the classics you'd be speaking german if it wasn't for us. around britain called the idea of a european army to undermine nato grazie so let me start european nations don't like being told they morph a nation to 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. more to defend itself as long as it doesn't when you told me to do it well i'm britain moans about the threat to nato unity he couldn't quite join just a pure peace and unity and of these armies to fight anyway macron is worried about china russia and the us but that is a whole nother episode. but friday turns
1:18 pm
sour and we stuff around the world denouncing the working conditions of the company or details after the break. their survival guide book stacie gives more to the story. these are the. issues are you going to get it back. next year. or it. repeats nations will look at the us is seventy years. old the seventy year treasury or. i think that every one of us. inside or out. of
1:19 pm
a dark side i think. going down your backside you can improve your odds. but it's also very. bad i really believe that the bottle that we sure is the real the band. conditions are what a lot. of staff have told their bosses to stop treating them like robots a number of the retail johnson ploys staged protests on black friday over working conditions in the company's warehouses i'm azzam workers in the spanish capital demanded improvements to both conditions and salaries over in the u.s. they protested against plans to open new amazon headquarters demonstrations were
1:20 pm
also held in france germany italy and the u.k. on trade union backed the protesters with the following video. no no show mobile phone not from our own and this is all we cannot rule. out on the. amazon has more than half a million employees worldwide including a quarter million in the u.s. the minimum wage that it pays an hour is twelve dollars in europe fifteen dollars in the u.s. the company recently increased the rate in the u.s. after workers protested. following the black friday protest amazon denied exploiting workers and said that it provides a safe and positive workspace with competitive pay and benefits labor rights lawyer dan kovalchuk told us that amazon is susceptible to work and consumer pressure. b.c. in the united states there because of bad publicity and some calls by people like senator bernie sanders amazon raised its wages to fifteen dollars an
1:21 pm
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 way but also again people do care about working conditions of others in the pay of others and i think people realize that while jeff bezos is making many many millions of dollars in his people or working in prison like conditions it is unacceptable. russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov has answered questions at a news conference in lisbon about the script polk case as well as u.k. claims of a russian threat that's after meeting with his portuguese counterpart the trenka is that force. the portuguese foreign minister began by saying that countries should work together to fight terrorism internationally yet he didn't exclude russia and
1:22 pm
that is in stark contrast to what we heard from you please call general staff recently he said now that islamic state had pretty much been eliminated russia poses a greater threat to the west then myself and so i asked a surrogate for his reaction to that statement. as to whether there is a red line in russia regarding statements similar to the one that the british chief of the general staff allowed himself to make you know we cannot prohibit anyone to exercise their intellectual and political abilities. portugal was one of the few european union countries that refused to expel russian diplomats as a result of the script poisoning scandal and so on. local journalist he asked his foreign minister the question on what could be seen as a block of diplomatic action to this the portuguese top diplomat replied that
1:23 pm
portugal will decide on its own what to do when it comes to international politics and the russian foreign minister went on to say that britain was losing trust with the moves it's making when it comes to this crippled poisoning case globally will put of seward in a good year the main question is where is yulia script pile and her father they haven't been seen in public for many months recently a film was released about the script but what is significant is that there is not a single word about where these poor people are so if the reason no access to this information it can mean only one thing the british secret service and the government have something to hide if you start a lab robb's trip to rome and lisbon is wrapping up and according to the washing side it has showed that rome and lisbon are the places on the map of the european union where it can be felt that the tide is gradually changing when it comes to how
1:24 pm
senior european politicians are treating their relationships with moscow. on of the rights activists have been accused of trying to run their agenda down the throats of the english town called will demanding that it be renamed to make it more animal friendly. with a simple main change huge can take a stand against cruelty and remind everyone that it's easy to stay warm and be warm hearted to sheep by choosing the good will. the one rule should remain as it is the idea of remaining the village is thoughts of the ridiculous the most easy antico easy i have come across in
1:25 pm
a long time the name wall has nothing to do we cheat it calms from deceptive the word for spring. thanks. just. like stay with us here at all times national i'll be back with the latest for you it off and on. nobody could see coming that calls confessions would be that prevalent in this particular case the fall of the bridge if you look at any interrogations out there what you'll see is threat promise threat promise threat lie a lie
1:26 pm
a lie the process of interrogation is designed to put people in just that frame of mind make the uncomfortable make them want to get out and don't take no for an answer don't accept their denial she said if i would cooperate sad statement there i would. by that the next day there's a culture of odd accountability and police officers know that they can engage in misconduct that has nothing to do with all the cry. on the sea on the lying circumstances that allowed for these emotions of this very very lengthy violence i think that we may go to the sons and even grandsons of dying at some point in the future it's primarily a political issue in iraq that has taken on minutes we. are on the for occasions.
1:27 pm
u.s. veterans who come back from war often tell the same stories. were going after the people who were killing civilians they were not interested in the wellbeing of their own soldiers either they're already several generations of them so i just got this memo from the circular defense of officers were got back and destroy their governments and in seven countries in five years americans pay for the wars with their money others with their lives if we were willing to go into harm's way and willing to risk being killed for a war. surely we can risk some discomfort or an easy for.
