4:02 pm
this line of security forces over here this is being a pretty much a cat and game cat and mouse game going on between the two with the police responding then with tear gas you might just see a couple more of those rocks landing there to wards the police forces as they coming the protesters here thousands of them we've got some me who's burning an e.u. flag right in front of us here many of these illusions don't like the european union either but those rocks now projectiles being thrown quite forcibly against the police and you can see now. being into ward service with what looks like here is pallets going off and if i know like to be grenades coming from the protesters this is now the tear gas that's coming into the protest group from the police you can see those canisters being distributed in the air fern up and you can
4:03 pm
see the tear gas now all across the floor hey just in front of the lead in the center of paris that casts all round us in fact take all or look around in circling where we are the idea to move these protesters away some of them have been seeing the police getting closer and closer to them some of the protesters they calling. to resign that's of course we get quite a lot for people out on the streets in the yellow vests in particular i want you to take a look around you can barely see down to one. only relieved as that smoke just envelops this or that gas already coming in already. so we just got to try and move away from it because it really just pick out your throats in your eyes. you see people coughing. but as
4:04 pm
a result of that to go. through all. of. the work. is really pretty nasty when it gets into your story and this is now act fourteen thousands of people came out to paris many people had thought that this pup's be the last. saturday protest of the shalit jones but the ones i've spoken to say that's not the case many unhappy about the thousands of people who've been arrested this was all to. protest movement we've had about eighteen hundred people who have gone through the court system so far including a couple of high profile cases including by the book suggested earlier in the week and every queuing is one of the so-called leaders over the movement so we just
4:05 pm
bring you back to where that police line is you can see there that is one of the water cannons that they use and has actually been deployed during that huge plant of gas that we saw that just in the last few minutes now the government has offered this relations many concessions including a rise in the simic which is the minimum wage and saying that those who over time will have been issued a social contributions or tax there's also this big debate going on but one of the things the government has done to really anger many people out in the streets particularly this year asians is this motion at the moment that's going through that would make it illegal to come to a pro. just like this and to cover your face with some people if they were caught doing that able to face up to a year in prison or a fine of several thousand pounds i say that's really and get this relations and they've just said to me that this is a movement that's been going on now for three months and they have absolutely no
4:06 pm
intention of finishing it show that you can ski r.t.e. paris a spokesperson for the free yellow vests group say the protests and are gathering force outside of the big cities to. the left. on the bed of the french countryside is mobilizing again we understand that being in big cities means we sometimes have to let these bullies release their poison will be heard these anti republicans will be protests on toll roads roundabouts and junctions blocking major economic centers in and around cities but we have to ensure their freedom to do this they're all ghanaians them instructions in city centers mums with druggies will come and it's hard to imagine christoph cast in a using traumatic weapons against mothers with four year old children in any case we hope not is it. a topic of syria has been one of the major discussion points during day two of the munich security conference in light of america's decisions of
4:07 pm
police troops out of the country u.s. vice president mike pence floated the idea that european soldiers should replace them in the middle east peace all the virus across the story. the u.s. vice president's comments appear to be a response to concerns that were voiced earlier on sunday by chancellor angela merkel that a u.s. withdrawal of troops from syria could lead to being a destabilizing factor in the region is the stanwood is it a good idea of the americans to pull out of sea remediate any and so swiftly doesn't it make the possibility of iran and russia increasing their influence there . it would appear that washington wants its european allies to take a more somber ground approach to syria when the us troops pull out of the north of the country to hammer this point home the u.s. side pointed out the terror attacks that have taken place in europe in recent years were a sign that europe needs to be more involved on the ground in syria twenty fifty
4:08 pm
one hundred thirty people were killed in paris twenty sixteen eighty six killed in these twelve killed and christmas truck bombing of berwyn twenty seventeen thirteen killed in spain so does it matter what happens over there hell yeah it matters it's hard to see that being palatable to anger at all in fact most european nations especially germany have been willing to say and troops to syria also even to engage militarily after all we heard also on this subject from study of the russian foreign minister he chipped in with his opinion of what mike pence that had to say was additional people on the regarding various plans being made by the countries on syrian territory illegitimately and especially the plans to get even more illegitimate players involved i think these are counterproductive for syria in all its forms of being discussed throughout this munich security conference so far at
4:09 pm
a session said again rob was taking questions from journalists and he bristled when he was asked about alleged atrocities committed by the syrian government a follow up question. on syria this comes from josh rogin of the washington post how will you view ensure that the assad regime stops threatening the region and stops committing atrocities against their own people. well i think you what whatever i answer you will write what you want so do it. away from syria the north stream to gas pipeline project is also being up for discussion here in munich in fact chancellor angela merkel devoted a large chunk of her address to the conference to that particular subject she said she remained fully committed to the project also you said that she wasn't prepared
4:10 pm
to risk her country's relationship with russia over potentially scaling down or pulling out of north stream well one country that particularly wants to see north stream fail is the united states washington hates it because one of the reasons is anyway they want to sell their own liquefied natural gas to the european markets the problem is it's much more expensive than gas that is piped directly from russia into europe or mike pence the us vice president also had something to say on this he said that both countries that oppose north stream to a friends of the us the united states commands all our european partners who have taken a strong stand against north stream two. and we commend others to do the same. that's why it's the flag of the up that no one wants to be unilaterally dependent on russia but we received russian gas not only the d.d.r. where i lived but also in west germany during the cold war and they don't see why the times today should be so much verse that we can no longer see russia remains
4:11 pm
a partner whatever the u.s. vice president thinks north stream too is said to see the gas flowing later this year and when it's fully operational will transfer fifty five billion cubic meters of natural gas. every year from russia under the baltic sea directly into germany. geopolitical analyst and consultant raina rothesay as the u.s. now wants its allies to take responsibility for syria but i think that the united states are trying to shift the burden. onto the shoulders of the european governments and their armies to pursue their globalist interests in syria. america first is the motto again the u.s. wants to save of course resources and the europeans make the chart but the question for me. to their europeans or should your really have an interest in supporting those goals that the united states had persecute since twenty eleven
4:12 pm
in syria from the diplomatic discussions to what's happening in syria itself russia has reached an agreement with damascus to have been to humanitarian corridors on the country's border with jordan the move would allow people trapped at the sprawling rock bound refugee camp to leave the area we got an update earlier from a journalist in damascus. the main deal now is to make to establish a corridor beginning from tuesday to let people refugees to use discouraged or to move to the areas which they are under the control of the syrian government of course those people according to the statement of the agreement could get the needed to be an aid as soon as they arrive to the first point the beginning of. the problem is that we are talking about the camp
4:13 pm
that is fully under control of. militias which are which are backed by us all do all you are giving all needed military aid to those fighters they can't get or they can't arrive any aid to the. camp which suffers of severe how many tarion christ this crisis is not regarded only short of food drinking water many reports they are talking about sexual exploitation they are talking about human traffic this is not the first corridor that russia and syrian government stablish ing in syria they were succeeded and they gave good results and should be part of. this plan but the main problem of course now is the u.s.
4:14 pm
role in disk ace because this is fully controlled of militias that are backed by us what is coming your way after the break. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next about different clubs on one hand it is logical to signal from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to suppressing it. or not if you think. i'm going to talk about football nazi or else you can think i was going to go.

4:17 pm
on the bus pass out of. a gun does. not gravy any chili a feel you need any. or all of your view. from the high to the herd. some four hundred twenty million children live in conflict zones with at least a thousand die as a result every year since two thousand and ten the number of recorded cases of rights violations against children has almost tripled was that includes cases of killing maiming abduction and sexual violence the increase comes despite many of the world's most powerful figures campaigning for the protection of young people in

wars. forces continue their advance bearing down on the city of benghazi. home to nearly seven hundred thousand men women and children prevent images of m a seeded children how many more children have to die the whole with the humanitarian disaster that is killing tens and tens of thousands of defenseless children due to the death of children the destruction of hospitals all that is a massacre which needs to be condemned. our reports say he is right now almost one in five children on the planet are living in conflict and that's more than at any time in the last two decades not only that the consequences of living in these war zones are catastrophic we estimate around three hundred babies are dying due to the consequences of war every single day well in twenty seventeen four hundred twenty
4:19 pm
million children what we're living in areas affected by conflict that is an increase of thirty million on the previous year so what this is is part of a really disturbing global trend where more and more children are being caught up in conflicts the international systems and surely come to belittle of breaking down so that when people commit crimes against children they know they can get away with it so what we're calling on is for the government to stand up for children in war zones and ensure that when people do the palpitate crimes against children held to account what we're really calling for today is for the u.k. government to update its protection of civilians in conflict strategy for us to be a government needs to ensure that children at the heart of all of the defense telling me see an ace and then they need to use their feet some of the most powerful tables in the world the u.n. nato to ensure that other countries policy. therefore the identifies afghanistan iraq syria and yemen is being among the most dangerous countries for children nobel
4:20 pm
prize nominee and peace activist kathy kelly told us the international community needs to do much more to safeguard young people. this children certainly can't be held accountable for their governments whether it's military war economic war and i think that because of greed and pride and dishonesty countries all around the world continue to war against the child their brain to the child should certainly be held countries could work together. much more effectively and so we have to take responsibility ourselves and then encourage other people to do the right they must do everything thing can to start this work and to start killing children. washington is continuing to ramp up the pressure on the venezuelan government on friday it hit the crisis stricken country state owned oil company five of nicolas maduro is top officials with
4:21 pm
a fresh wave of sanctions the united states sought to justify the move by replacing its claim that the embattled president is undermining democracy and continuing to violate human rights at the same time the u.s. is starting to send emergency aid to venezuela essential like food and medicine have already been delivered to the colombian border that's nicolas maduro is refusing to allow the supplies to cross into his country he says this is the nicholl ploy by the trumpet ministration and attempts to justify a possible military intervention the venezuelan president also hit out of the colombian government which he accuses a flagrant question. for our part or policy for colombia is peace and respect i cannot say the same about the government of the colombian president even dukie who has war plans against venezuela supported by the us empire i am not exaggerating donald trump and even in the white house announced
4:22 pm
war plans using colombia against venezuela. president maduro is also a way of putting a diplomatic channel by inviting elliot abrams for talks but as caleb maupin explains the united states is special envoy for venezuela's red cord in south america isn't very promising. elliott abrams the trumpet ministrations new special representative for venezuela has been assigned the task of restoring democracy in the country and he says he's up to it just look how well he did in el salvador from the day the president was elected in a free election to this day salvador has been a democracy that's a fabulous achievement yes the pro-u.s. candidate to war to a won the elections but how democratic was the situation there were human rights abuses and death squads everywhere in fact one of the worst massacres in the history of latin america happened around that time for.
4:23 pm
now it has got confronted about the gruesome details before congress yes or no do you think that massacre. was a fabulous achievement that happened under our watch that is a ridiculous question of i guess are no no no i literally miss i will make you happy if i am not going to respond to that kind of personal attack which is not a question now the civil war between the us backed factions and the marxist revolutionaries continued until one thousand nine hundred two and slaughter by us backed forces also continue the death toll was as high as seventy thousand people
4:24 pm
but ronald reagan did not consider that to be a deal breaker the people of bill salvador had another free election in march economic reforms are continuing and communist guerrillas are losing ground and none of this would have been possible without the economic assistance and military training and equipment that we provided so what have been the results is el salvador now a land of prosperity and freedom hardly in fact in twenty seventeen el salvador had the highest murder rate of any country in the world it is not currently at war those figures only decreased slightly in twenty eighteen now somebody might look at this and say well that was decades ago why bring it up now well the fact that abrams wants to repeat his democracy restoration project in venezuela is certainly alarming and when asked about this before the us congress he didn't deem it necessary to give an answer would you support an armed faction within venezuela
4:25 pm
that engages in war crimes crimes against humanity or genocide if you believe they were serving u.s. interest as you did in guatemala el salvador and nicaragua i'm not going to respond to that question i'm sorry on friday i see america correspondent don cohen confronted a broom's off to a conference in washington asking him a few questions he didn't seem overly keen on throwing his the video. what do you say to people who are skeptical about you because of your. three if using humanitarian aid to send weapons to the contras in central america. you have any comments about but there are a lot of people who are very skeptical. until. you can sing along and i'm doing my job you are to which you can walk and so i will i'm sure it would you what do you have to say about that. but back in thirty five minutes with all the latest you'll see that.

4:27 pm
at the book that the wife bad. global financial crisis part is underway it's all happening it's all white multi-trillions of dollars gone in a heartbeat looking like phantasmagoria right here on planet. crazy. the. united states does that all the time it always tries to influence elections when people who are running who are friendly to the united states are running against people who are unfriendly we certainly did that all through central america and south america for many many years we know that these efforts are made repeat.
