2:02 am
as published so that we do not get into that kind of a scenario in which nobody would wish to have the us back to venezuela the opposition leader brown's my daughter was regime a dictatorship our president my daughter who himself accuses quite go of attempting to stage a coup with washington's help and i was the situation intensifies what's happening in venezuela looks like a case of history repeating itself and they grieve you think the whole world is too fullish to notice either you stand with the forces of freedom or you're in league with his mayhem when we stand with the syrian people or with their oppressors the former dura regime has oppressed its people for years repressive regime of bashar al assad the tyranny of the now defunct mature regime the assad regime its brutality and repression active threat to the entire region growing threat to regional peace and security it is time for men to her own to go it's time for assad to get out of the way. the stories of syria venezuela and the protest movements
2:03 am
there are from two separate books but can someone tell me why anyone who is in charge of america always reads off the same manual when their national interest rate or spots another regime change opportunity let's go through the steps that are a must venezuela versus syria some great examples for you. people in american politics have a special sense for legitimacy what if they have a device for that or something from our perspective he has lost legitimacy he has failed to deliver on the promises he's made in its role as the only legitimate branch of government duly elected by the venezuelan people the national assembly invokes the country's constitution to declare nicolas maduro illegitimate and the office of the presidency therefore vacant you see the manual so great that even donald trump couldn't help picking it up after hillary. yes
2:04 am
the idea is not just to start backing the opposition you physically got to be there with them was it was. a cool. oh. oh. now that's a classic what could be more classic it almost makes you imagine that as kids all american politicians are told when you grow up you'll never succeed unless you sanctions and filthy regime syria check venezuela provide we're going to announce sanctions against patrol is to venezuela associate the name we're paid of day says it's known by its spanish acronym the state owned oil monopoly since the opposition in places like venezuela or syria are pretty much
2:05 am
aware of the contents of the manual they know when it's the right time for them to start asking for weapons armed rebels defected soldiers there will always be those who will be happy to get new guns that are going to spend its way down so much time that we make a request to the us he says to support us in logistical terms of communication with weapons so we can realize venezuelan freedom what we need is. and until the science back to the states and the people in charge there when you're only one step away from sending your old army in to get the job done don't forget to say that. the table that you're agreeing with which is all options always all options are on the. you know what all of this was unintentional never planned we will stop to topple the regime at all to
2:06 am
throw out governments we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force is that also in the manual. following washington's lead the european union is also turning up the heat on venezuelan president nicolas maduro brussels now lending its full support of the us foreign policy chief has outlined possible measures that could be taken against president murders government artie's correspondent peter oliver investigates federica mockery and he has announced what's being called an international contact group all venezuela it will be made up of european union members as well as latin american partners what she says is this is definitely not going to be any official attempt at mediation in the venezuelan crisis this is really a talking shop getting people together getting discussions going while venezuela tries to sort out its problems using the mechanisms that already exist in the venezuelan constitution but while she was saying that she also said that there
2:07 am
could well be further sanctions from e.u. member states against venezuela those would be sanctions that targeted the government the sanctions targeted sanctions in place really that would be news unanimously recently and there are elements of sanctions might be considered by the ministers in the coming days if we would not see positive developments any sanction that's not. that's not. implemented by the security council is illegal so all the sanctions that the u.s. simplemente against have been stolen people are illegal according to international law the e.u. parliament passed a resolution on venezuela in its says that they recognize one quite doe as the legitimate interim president of venezuela they reject any type of violent solution to the ongoing impasse in the country and they also support fully
2:08 am
a proposal by the un secretary-general for a full and independent investigation into deaths in venezuela let's have a listen to what was said in brussels i mean the european parliament is the first european institution to do this nude asked member states to do the same as quickly as possible in order to ensure that we have a strong unified european position germany the u.k. and france had already said that they were going to give nicolas maduro until monday to call fresh elections otherwise they would be throwing their full support behind one quite though it almost seems certain that that's going to happen right now particularly when you hear from nicolas maduro that he has no intention of calling elections the next elections he sees in his country will be in twenty twenty five when his current term is supposed to end unfortunately e.u. shows that it's incapable of taking an independent foreign policy they've made a bunch of noises about continuing to do business with iran despite the fact that the u.s. unilaterally illegally pulled out of the p five plus one deal and once again there
2:09 am
are lining up behind washington's foreign policy maybe they've been promised some of the spoils john bolton the other day said openly in explicitly u.s. companies should go into venezuela it would seem that this is the largest oil reserves in the world so you can imagine how many hands in the u.s. in the e.u. are robin themselves together with glee and dissipating the windfall profits so with all eyes on venezuela right now with what is actually gaining international support for. the likes of turkey china and russia calling with the only legitimate leader and while says he wants to solve the country's urgent problems the russian ambassador to caracas alleges the opposition is putting its political ambitions above all else. the venezuelan opposition is indeed quite diverse but the political ambitions of the opposition play an essential role i can give you a specific example i happened to have several meetings with the representatives of
2:10 am
the opposition and i asked them why they did not raise issues that really affected people i mean the food shortage shortage of medicine or safety because every public survey shows these topics up public opinion their replies were vague and the only way i can explain it is that the political ambitions of the opposition happened to be more important for them than these hot button issues important to the majority of venezuelan citizens. on thursday hundreds of people took to the streets of athens and barcelona to declare their solidarity with the venezuelan government catalans staged their rally outside the european union's headquarters of demonstrators and marched to the parliament and the u.s. embassy carrying goods and venezuelan. political analyst told us that international support will play a key role in venezuela it's very important to get the support of russia china turkey and many other countries as well for him with zero so his people understand
2:11 am
that there is international support that they're not that these countries are not going to let the democratically elected president be removed by undemocratic means or a coup when you look at what's going on in venezuela we're only one or two small events from it turning into a syria now i hear madeira mentioned vietnam but i think it's a lot closer to what happened in syria you look at the opposition defected soldiers from the c.n.n. report requesting arms from trump well that sounds very similar to what happens in two thousand and eleven when obama started the army people. while the e.u. and u.s. are aligning when it comes to latin america things are different over the middle east and iran in particular france germany and the u.k. of working out ways to u.s. sanctions on trading with tehran having announced the launch of a special transaction channel on thursday this is starting to transfer to many in the united kingdom as an issue of. competition that is welcome to much and that
2:12 am
i believe will be essential for the full implementation continued full implementation of the nuclear deal with the new payment system called the instrument in support of trade exchanges or instax is going to be a non-dollar mechanism it will be very best in paris and managed by the former director for germany's commerzbank or the u.k. will head up a supervisory board it's ironic was hoping that in states would enable europe to continue buying its oil however brussels says for now it will only use it to export food and medicine to iran. last year europe opposed america's decision to withdraw from the twenty fifteen nuclear deal with iran under the agreement sanctions were lifted in exchange for terror on limiting its nuclear program independent journalists are living things they'll be few takers when it comes to europe's new transaction system it will be a trickle of companies daring do that it's much easier for chinese companies or for
2:13 am
russian companies to to close deals to to make deals with iran the europeans are scared in an incredible way the companies if you talk to them they are afraid of being in the eye off the storm with the americans trying to make an example because that's what washington is going to do for example it will suddenly pick up a few examples and and be harsh on them and mention it in press releases and in public campaign so that's very dangerous for european companies i don't know if anybody will dare go with the in stick system. crenshaw authorities are facing a major legal challenge over the controversial use of the riot guns by police officers in recent months since the yellow vest protests campaign began back in november over one hundred investigations have been opened into the use of this type of weapon and france's second biggest union they want
2:14 am
a blanket ban on the use of the weapon which fires golf ball sized rubber bullets and has caused serious injuries among demonstrators and yellow vest protest leaders have called a march for this coming weekend in support of those who have been wounded by the police. love that almost as it were deliberately chose the five two on the to root which is not much compared to what we did before but will also be citizens and speeches. the next it can be me today i do not dare look at myself in the mirror for me my life is destroyed. sister channel r.t. france has spoken to one of the injured proto. who claims the government is not listening to its people but i understand now that the government is deaf to us that it couldn't hear the demands and the appeal was being made on the streets but now i see i lost an eye to accept responsibility for what is happening our efforts are peaceful that's my slogan i'm
2:15 am
a humanist i want protesters to be protected and the greatest gift to me was when during act nine children came to kiss me to shake my hand they were happy to come to the protest with their parents so why call for an icky why call for everything to be broken it is not in our interests we are reasonable people we will not destroy our own country. profiting from war cry that's what a new report by human rights group amnesty international says tourist companies are doing by listing accommodation in disputed west bank settlements this has prompted one israeli minister to call for amnesty to be banned from the country israel has been illegally building settlements on palestinian land for decades but it's also removed of thousands of palestinians from their land and israeli settlers who moved in these actions constitute war crimes the world's leading digital tourism
2:16 am
companies promoted settlements as a tourist destination be booking dot com expedia and trip advisor list hotels. attractions and tours in sacraments. in the report i'm listing international slams online booking companies offering hundreds of places to stay in settlements across the west bank and for failing to state that they are in fact in disputed territories co-founder of the international solidarity movement adam shapiro says it wouldn't be the first time israel's banned organizations like amnesty i think the reaction by over the years rose if they were to ban miss the international researchers would be sort of foolish although not only expected we've seen previously when the human rights watch researcher who is on the ground on worship here published a report similar about there being the activities in the occupied territories israel moved immediately to have them removed from the country so far they have not
2:17 am
been successful as the courts have intervened and there is a case going on but you know this is happened many times over the years where when initial organization or or any kind of monitor of what's going on in the occupied territories reports what's happening in israel moves to takes efforts to remove those people from from being in the in the occupied territories and prevent others from coming to see israel has banned thousands of people myself included from entering the occupied territories and prevented thousands of others from entering because they suspect that people are coming to witness to bear witness to the occupation one of the companies listed air b.n. b. has previously come under fire for the same thing and is accused of failing to fulfill a promise to remove listings in disputed settlements back in november well the company's name in the report have responded by insisting that they do in fact state clearly where the accommodation is located and that the information they provide is
2:18 am
a political. are still coming up on the program here on the u.s. lawyers acting for one russian businessman implicated in the model of probe eventually being denied access to key evidence in the case will try to explain why part of the. show seemed wrong when all the rules just don't hold. me. to shape out these days to come out again and in again from an equal betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know world big partisan movies. and conspiracy it's time to wake up
2:19 am
to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. right now at twenty past here in moscow another twist in america's model a probe into alleged russian collusion it is refusing to share key evidence with the u.s. lawyers of a russian businessman who has been implicated. down off picks up the story the
2:20 am
prospect of proof coming from the murder investigation on any collusion may never see the light of day that's long been normalised by pundits but now the shroud of secrecy around the renowned russia probe is darkening further election meddling evidence could be out of reach even for the defense the united states of america respectfully opposes the motion of defendant concord management and consulting l.l.c. for approval to disclose documents identified by the special counsel a sensitive for purpose of preparing for trial the defendant this time is a concord management consulting a firm managed by you've gagne proportion a russian multi-millionaire nicknamed putin's chef catering commitments to the kremlin. accuses him of being the chieftain of russian on. line trolls who allegedly played a role in swaying the twenty sixteen election in response his company hired
2:21 am
a law firm in the u.s. as you would but apparently some of the private information the lawyers had previously received from miller emersion lying for all to see it was published on twitter by the account hacking redstone which has then been suspended but a screenshot of the tweet allegedly showed the law firm had been hacked so apparently the attorneys had nothing to do with it it's not like they would voluntarily leak classified information why well because of because the can that's why and some outlets sent this unique bandwagon crashing down the hill this company when hired a pittsburgh law firm and was and has managed to essentially draw this out and use especially the legal system of the united states i guess the mother investigation so in history's paraded over the myriad of court cases where defendants would hire
2:22 am
lawyers to world defend themselves against the accusations they pleaded not guilty to this one somehow stands out and what standard procedure in every single other case is using the legal system and this one but miller is totally cool with it now he has a perfectly good reason to deny the defense access to court materials which is any prosecutor's dream come true miller says he will only show the case dogs to progression himself but making someone who will never come to the us to face these supposed charges and arrest dream on that is a problem of concorde's own making so how the tide has turned now anyone salivating in anticipation of juicy collusion details might be better off waiting for russian hackers. legal analyst lionel says prosecutors are normally rather eager to share their evidence there is
2:23 am
a concept of disclosing information which tends to be exculpatory meeting information which tends to work to your defense the prosecutor must always provide information evidence to let you know the defendant what you are being charged with and what you can do to is that if the information doesn't help the prosecutor if there's something that hurts the prosecutor i was a prosecutor we'd love to show you evidence of what we have against you we want you to know everything that we have so that you think wow they've got me now so why is he doing this because either a he doesn't have any evidence b. there's something embarrassing he doesn't want you to see or see all of the above. muslims in the u.k. have staged a demonstration outside a school in the city of birmingham over what they call the forcible promotion of l
2:24 am
g b t rights among the children some parents have even taken their kids out of school in protest that is something that is illegal in britain a petition against the curriculum was also started and leaflets were handed out near the school some of the parents insist that issues of sexuality should not be taught in school. children have been told it's ok to be gay yet ninety eight percent of children have this school a muslim my little girl is four she's in reception and she came home asking me if it's ok to be a boy instead of for girl and has dressed up and her brothers clothes she's four years old i respect all religions but why should six ralitsa be taught to primary school age children it's out of control. the school's assistant head teacher who is behind the project believes the educational program is a way of reducing the risk of radicalization stating it helps children to adapt to life in modern britain and celebrates diversity in society. parents need to
2:25 am
understand this is a cation program is designed to stop bullying it's designed to you personally believe in same sex relations but you have a live in the live attitude and if kids are going to get on the playground they need to accept difference and you know muslim people are different from others but that doesn't make prejudice against them rights and i find it very strange in that setting that muslim some muslim people who know the hate and pain but they have suffered because of their faith would not wish to challenge other forms of hate and prejudice the issue here is not so much about what he's been teaching i think if you listen to what the school says if you listen to a parent so there's miscommunication there's in a some sense propaganda both sides if i may say so. inflame the situation but if these sort of things happen in school where education is teaching about how differences in this country are very very important and we should respect people we
2:26 am
should accept people who are different be very important and we should respect people we should accept people who are different it doesn't mean that you accept homosexuality but you accept that there are gay people in this country. you know live their lives for example as any other citizen in this country. for this hour here on r.t. international just a sampling of some of the top stories for this hour from all around the world we are back with more. doesn't want to know most of it possibly in years and years it was not abused or. not but you. know i did my best religion that's the way i.

2:29 am
served as secretary of energy during the administration of bill clinton. instead of the new mexico are what do you make bill between the contradiction between the intel chiefs and the president. well this is unprecedented a president not listening to his own to policymakers like the president like the secretary of state department of defense cia it's incredible that he won't listen that he is just listening to his gut instinct which is not based on facts our intelligence people i have budgets over twenty two billion dollars they have satellites spies they have drones they have all kinds of ways to obtain information and the president is denying.
