6:05 am
that's near colonialism. distended sometimes it's difficult to drop old habits existing for centuries but they need to do that. so that was russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov talking about possibility of open military intervention to the news well though we also. had the biggest venezuela's vice minister about this possibility and she has said that venezuela will not become second syria and adding that everybody knows what the americans plans in venezuela are but it will not happen and there will be no intervention and the authorities will not be overthrown just because as she has said the people of venezuela and the country's army are at this moment united as never as united as
6:06 am

6:07 am
reached the culmination of the american workers treated double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robs an entire nation out of billions of dollars in the same time or pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all we greet humanitarian problems and then you call upon the whole world to solve them we look forward to genuinely free and fair elections and to a government that reflects the will and aspirations of the venezuelan people. that you have today's vote is an excellent example of one of the veto rule is necessary for protecting the peace and people's right to determine their future both the russian and the u.s. resolutions didn't pass the voting in the un security council the russian one got less votes in favor that against four in favor and seven against the us draft was vetoed by russia and china the russian ambassador said that if the u.s. resolution had passed it would be the first case in history that the united nations
6:08 am
security council deposed a legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives spoke as well calling to stop interfering in the matters of his country the power to this will has to do with having a swell on slaughtering at the end of an assault on people they behave like colonial east they are planning a clandestine operation against it a sort of right out of the same kind of talking about what he thought and therefore at the same time they are just feeling out of money you see something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the u.n. as thieves members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york treated each other as r.t. . meanwhile hundreds of activists have rallied in the spanish capital madrid in support of venice wieland president nicolas maduro demonstrators chanted slogans and waved her off venice wheeler banners they condemned what they see as an attempt
6:09 am
by the united states to intervene in the country's internal affairs we discussed the division in the international community over venezuela with investigative journalist and the czech. international community of course is divided between those who are or are supporting the well look at yet another cooler of what they call regime change that are among those who are actually respecting the. independence of the gone through good as well or gone through a democratic state gone through some scare gone through sort of or money or governments aren't really that sure to follow the same part so it's well you support the notion china obviously you are risking that or your regime but also going through she will be changed now on this very important china and russia are standing shoulder to shoulder to climb the grid as well and so we do have the international community divided between the progressive nations and between the
6:10 am
nations which will. either be used to washington's dictate all of the or two or three two to actually contradict one of the worst general. like i believe in this bill and that they're meeting in moscow behind for now but move on to other big news story of the week with federal elections just months away canada's prime minister is facing calls to step down over a political scandal engulfing his government justin trudeau has been accused of quote leading a campaign of pressure against his former attorney general to prevent the prosecution of one of the country's biggest companies quite direct language and to cut a deal instead. i experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in an inappropriate effort to secure a deferred prosecution agreement with s. and c.
6:11 am
level and the prime minister asked me to help out to find a solution here for s n c well let's just go through what we know here the scandal surrounds a canadian company which is one of the world's largest engineering and construction firms and twenty fifteen it was charged with bribery and for water over the payment of nearly one hundred million dollars in kickbacks to libyan officials but dealings allegedly involved family members of former leader moammar gadhafi they were meant to secure a contracts in a lucrative irrigation project justin trudeau denied any inappropriate behavior insisting he was just trying to save jobs. i and my staff always acted appropriately and professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine thousand jobs in communities across the country including the possible impact on pensions. of former attorney general jody wilson raybold resigned
6:12 am
over the a for citing the veiled threats allegedly leveled at her by the canadian prime minister's office trudeau's principle secretary has also left his position made reports that more officials are ready to quit the administration political analyst alice on that of bruno explains why the case could cost the prime minister instant. it shows that the politics and interests do mix in canada as well as other places and this is the problem it's the image that the prime minister has built around himself or some people call it the brand of a feminist alter a liberal alter a legal transparent leader who is completely tripping over his own ideals in ten months there will be an election in canada so no matter where this goes constitutional crisis a political crisis there will be
6:13 am
a problem in the election and just in two of those leadership is definitely in question now the idea was that if since eleven and we face prosecution. it might have to move headquarters away from canada so also. since eleven is in a writing where trudeau is directly involved the more writings you win the more chances you have been in election it must have been very important for trudeau to have taken such really. i'm not sure measures and he thought he could he could pressure his justice minister. let's turn attention to yemen and a very particular situation in a bid to ease the humanitarian crisis in the war stricken country the u.n. has raised more than two and a half billion dollars at a high level pledging event in geneva but that's well short of the targets of
6:14 am
a four billion dollars needed to fulfill this year's aid plan that they have set themselves on top of that many of the donor countries or ones linked to that almost four year old conflict in yemen either those involved directly in fighting or selling arms.
6:15 am
well there has been a cry over this on these links middle east advisor for the norwegian refugee council for instance karl schembri he's joined calls for donor countries to stop a selling arms to saudi arabia. but almost twenty four million yemenis in need of aid of some sort either because they haven't received salaries because they are sleeping hungry at night i've met children a ten year old gary haifa who was telling me they go to sleep hungry every other day because they can't afford to have a meal every day they've been displaced my thought was times they've lost their houses there is no safe place in yemen and there's no yemeni who hasn't in one way or another witness this war be it on land and sea and air strikes artillery tank fire it's happening every day across yemen the united states saudi arabia the united arab emirates and further down the road the united kingdom they are the top
6:16 am
dollar as they have been traditionally the world's most generous in funding and where it's our united for yemen but at the same time they are also the most active directory or in directing it with the sales of weapons or dropping off bombs directly on the yemeni civilians so we're aware calling for an and so the hypocrisy ended up less if he also feeding with one hand the yemenis to keep them alive destroying their cancer with the other why the aid is desperately needed they themselves up to date and the need for that states through the war through the fighting through the blockades of of yemen these weapons this fighting is having a direct impact on women children and civilians who have absolutely lost day in this conflict public anger under also a little support in the u.k. after pictures of an ice allbright are used as target practice in a shooting range i'll tell a bit about after the break. what
6:17 am
we really need is someone from outside. america. because the. series they lost. so is a stake not intermediate between cause of the palestinians. much was expected from the noise summit there may have been goodwill on both sides but in the end neither the united states nor north korea could agree on the path forward the two sides failed to reach a common understanding of what their desired endgame for denuclearization actually ends. join me every thursday on the elec simon chill and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness.
6:18 am
in a shooting range in the u.k. has been branded distasteful for allowing pictures of his old bride shamima beg to be used as target practice the teenager earned notoriety after an interview in which she showed no remorse or regret about fleeing to join the terrorist group in syria one of her images used at the range covered in bullet holes has been widely shared online reactions been mixed. in a society where hate and violence against muslims particularly muslim women is most prevalent on the rise it's deeply concerning that people requested an image of
6:19 am
a real person as a shooting target it's clearly wrong to use photos of people as targets in a shooting they should stop why you're so worried about a traitor they're just plain again with her poster her i says friends stars three real human hands of beheaded victims like a football and she wasn't raised remember that shamima baghdad was born in britain but took her sister's passport and fled to syria four years ago to join isel when she was fifteen she knows say she'd like to return to the u.k. but britain's move to revoke her citizenship here's why the shooting range according to them chose to od showing the bag on to their targets the targets provide some fantastic reactions and conversations and allow people to have some lighthearted fun and bring out the in a child in us all the targets we provide do not necessarily always reflect our personal opinions after watching footage of big i'm being interviewed and the lack of remorse and empathy she shows we chose to go ahead and run the targets we asked
6:20 am
our guests what kind of message that sends to people. the issue is how it's going to actually impacts on muslims in this country and muslim women in particular and the fact that we need to recognize that she whether we like it or not because she is a muslim woman she is going to inevitably represent something that the people who are going into range people are saying this is something that is going to be targeting muslim women in the second what is more what is more offensive to muslim women the fact that should be pagans picture was at the shooting range almost nobody is going to go to all the fact that somebody is appearing on international television to say that should mean the begum is a vet present state of muslim women in britain that is not what i said that is a caricature. of what i've actually precisely what you said that night if you have knowledge i need to actually think about what do you allow me to finish what you
6:21 am
allow me to finish what i'm talking about plane that is being made is that a racist environment this is a racist environment which you are a part of which is encouraging the targeting of muslim women she is a terrorist and they're law abiding citizens and frankly you should take that back you should apologize to muslim women in this country for suggesting that she is like them this is a process of desensitization of children from a very early age and this is problematic because it is saying that it's ok to shoot and kill women in her job because that's exactly what is being suggested in this to call it harmless fun i think it's important that we recover the child advocates on the t.v. channels that we should take military action to get the child by its u.k. who after all is an innocent victim she can take a hike i don't care about this i don't think i did either really so i did she also say it's not true and b. so fed was there to reason that there. is
6:22 am
a terrorist or that there is great he'll be placed in a way that would be taken away but for a white person that would not be an option. their citizenship would be taken away he said on other than the law to recognize the structural racism that exists through everything that you are actually saying is a sense of what you would define i think should be i would say of the you all bring her back to defend the great never have and try her and that's the issue there is an environment of hate that exists i think what we have to think first of all who are the real victims here should be jim he's a terrorist she has supported a brutal terrorist regime the disgraceful idea in the media that we should be seeing her as the vic said i think it's sad and pathetic that it would not be the role of the british state to tell british people what they can call do just cause one or two people are offended by it if we lived our lives bombing everything that so that one person found offensive nothing would exist in the world and thank god i live in a country where we're never going to do that. harvard university in the u.s.
6:23 am
is launching a probe after a graffitti a turn on the campus call for one of its law professors to resign it comes after faculty dean rummel sullivan decided to join the legal team representing disgraced hollywood film producer harvey weinstein and he has thirty more. down with the dean said doesn't care these are just some of the angry slogans held by protesters on campus at harvard university why the meeting me if meant it to me to me to me to be to me to be pulled. only this time the accused has not been inappropriate towards women the rights lie with disgraced movie mogul harvey weinstein has assembled his legal dream team he can afford the best and that includes a top harvard law school professor ronald sullivan he's tried to explain the simple right to a fair trial but the students are having none of it it's particularly important for
6:24 am
this category of unpopular defendant to receive the same process as everyone else perhaps even more important to the degree we deny unpopular defendant basic due process rights we cease to be the country we imagine ourselves to be he's got a point everyone accused of a crime is entitled to the best legal defense they can get even weinstein who isn't even the most notorious to of sullivan's catalogue of controversial clients but some students have to have taken the cue from what would you rather have a client who committed a crime in say or prohibitum these are the words that. i would rather have a client he said isn't that beam that is of outrage you have failed the black women in this community not only as one of the few black faculty deans on campus but also as a community leader someone who were inspected and looked to for guidance and even a petition online calling percent of and resignation with the escalation on campus
6:25 am
of its administration and starting climate review of the house to which it promises appropriate action as dean of the college one of my highest priorities is to ensure that the support students receive for there is additional community pulls institutional commitment to their wellbeing if a waltz plaudits an illegal winds or anything to go by sullivan's track record is formidable but when you signed up by an unpopular defendant like one scene even the best legal reputation can bite the dust and unforgiving court of public opinion yes everybody has a right to legal defense but not really everybody in america this is the precedent that's being set only some people have a right to a legal defense only some people have the right to an attorney only some people have the right to representation yes harvey weinstein's crimes are regis granted but it's setting a precedent to say that if we don't like if we don't approve of what you've done
6:26 am
then you're not worthy of the bill of rights and of the united states i think it just goes to show the downfall in the trajectory of top american law schools there's very little competition because of this atmosphere in the united states on university campuses where so many students to not be traumatized can't be around things that they don't agree with socially or politically i mean at the very essence of what you're going to school to become which as an attorney is debate is competition is arguing for your points is being around places where they're going to be challenges and so if you're going to a school to become that you have to be able to not only speak your mind but to understand why you're becoming a turn. any a no holds barred look next at some of the most distressed neighborhoods in america fifty years on after the end of segregation block lives through.
6:27 am
with no make this manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the final merry go round lifts and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million real new. my son doing drugs my nephews was still in drugs my sister just with doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse we started going after the users in a prison population sewer we started treating sick people people who are addicted
6:28 am
to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill i increasingly became convinced that the war on drugs was a mistake there are countless numbers of people who are in prison for. certain sins for minor minor offenders in the drug trade it's a lot watching your children grow up and miss you in waves and say bye daddy as you're walking out of a business it's just it doesn't get easier. one else seems wrong why don't we all just don't call. me lol. you get to shape out just to come out to it and in the game equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
6:29 am
most folks don't like the truth. we're living in a generation. then. is confused just as it relates to the truth. and the truth is minnie's so build up. donald j. trump say is. sweet. whatever he feels like saying. tweeting to his own. destruction. ya need to hit me today. just because you say what's on your mind
6:30 am
