rival protests script. threats in a bid to oust president maduro we report approach to the latin american country. once again across the country. we're going to bring you the biggest stories as reported here over the past seven days or so getting you up to speed on developments across the weekend with him i'm
going to start with venezuela sanctions threats accusations protests the political crisis there is deepening the capital caracas has been gripped by both pro and anti-government demonstrations opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the government. the solution is intervention theory . they tried to fabricate this whole show claiming the military would join them but there is only one answer yes to loyalty and no one to be true. is a clown. and a criminal. after a very tense week opposition supporters are back on the streets to protest against the government of nicolas maduro they're called was made by one white go on monday
after returning an international tour does heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest ones of venezuelan history at the moment the whole capital is powerless one of the but i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water no food the government should step down there were no i'm here to defend the democratic choice of all people when we voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike one go door and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. and well. outside help washington tries to cripple caracas financially in a bid to oust nicolas maduro the u.s. state department even went as far as to break journalists who didn't agree with the united states view on venezuela. we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one white though as the opposition leader or the
self-proclaimed president. neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize as interim president of venezuela you get this for your complaining because. you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well that's all it's like a complete since three weeks he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other countries will recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the militia so they're fifty countries is not even close that. it's the time to act in support of democracy and that news coverage of
the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage more functions to work we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator and pressure was stepped up in the venezuelan government this week u.s. vice president mike pence announced that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas maduro would have the u.s. visas revoked washington special envoy to venezuela elliott abrams hinted at sanctioning third parties for the support of the venezuelan leader and the u.s. national security adviser john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venezuelan ally cuba adding the whole region should stand against caracas . takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate who side people should be on. the united states is exceptional literally that how and by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to
decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who are only human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't
like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and a zoo l.-a and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that that is who asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and there a knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us and work with our partners to expel
every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good and now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's
special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monro would turn in his grave if he could see what his but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizes what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continents oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another
whether in one thousand nine hundred fifty four with our burns or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. yellow vest movement has again taken to the streets of paris in its continuing stand against the french government. i i i.
i don't know. if art is used tear gas after money clashes flared among the crowds and paris said spread beyond the capital too though more than twenty eight thousand protesters rallied nationwide protest been ongoing now for seventeen consecutive weekends with demonstrators. changes to living standards despite president a manual mccollum's attempts to calm public opinion by canceling proposed fuel tax hikes launching a national debate on the problems such as a ruptured in the french cities of little where hundreds of demonstrators had gathered there were also reports of a number of injuries the protesters sustained in standoff with. hundreds of islamic state fighters have surrendered to u.s. backed forces in the syrian for the top but the last i still held area near the iraqi border. the small syrian village of bug has been focal point for the syrian
democratic forces for several weeks now and it's been cold the last remaining enclave for feisal forces in syria and not without good reason the world has seen crown suffer scaping civilians and even jihadists who chose to surrender and addition to the terrorists there also their wives and children too. praising the islamic state with a different slogans they also showed the soles of their shoes as an insult even now they still believe this is not the end of the caliphate just a short while ago though donald trump announced that his army and allies crushed islam make state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred
percent we just took over ever since then however there has been a wave of different opinions from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground for instance they had of us central command while he was sure that islamic state hasn't surrendered and the threat is still real he says the terrorists after some tactical thinking. have chosen to lay low and waits for the right time to come back reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over and at least for now president trumps announcements that u.s. soldiers were pulling out seems more and more in doubt but nothing seems to be certain in this ongoing conflict especially with the unpredictable situation and douglas you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis see a resurgent you know are winning out we'll come back if we have to well as general
votel testified in congress recently he said that. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have formed we believe the farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know it's some future date from the later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's a hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces obviously advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis
is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. the village of the goos has been a hot spot for the syrian democratic forces for several weeks last week the u.s. backed troops launched an assault on what they called the last i still held area in the country that's off the donald trump and already. cleared it mission complete however as islamic state continues to make its last a defiant stand to those who fled its remaining stronghold face new threats hunger and illness. honestly i didn't leave to join i.c.l. i left seeking jihad for god because we are all muslims and we have very sincere
value hard in the qur'an. what about the killing slaughtering and torturing let someone experience fear now to the religion they left these clerics tanks but especially in the beginning it had divided into. the conditions a definitely dying in the camp the problem is nobody was expecting these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped. was the. relatives of the children of french who had these have appealed to the un for the youngsters to be allowed back to france that currently being held in camps in syrian code is still one of the lawyers who helped launch the plea says the children will be able to adapt to a normal life in front. good leads people in the french people every day for three
years in a row being told that this children are time bombs they want to prove their repatriation but in fact they're being deceived eighty four children have already returned to france they have adapted their being socialized the are ok they were safe from the worst life and what are we going to do are we going to leave those children just because they were born into families which left for flight but these children hadn't asked to be born there they hadn't asked to be taken there they're innocent victims. according to the save the children charity there are now more than two and a half thousand children in camps in northern syria from around thirty nations. you just heard from that thinks that around a hundred of them a french france is currently dealing with them on a case by case basis the thing is the majority of french people seem to be against the children's return a new poll found that sixty seven percent of respondents did not want them back in
france now we spoke to the father of one of the victims of the bus a clown concert in paris which was masterminded by i still in that terror attack there he thinks the children of jihad he should suffer the consequences of their parents' actions. you call parents a bearing responsibility for the future of their children they've left france voluntarily nobody forced them out they've decided to fight against bronze they've crossed themselves out of frauds and unfortunately their children should account for the consequences for me these children coming back is out of the question i don't even consider them french nationals but there have been lots of attempts and directed radicalization very sophisticated ones there have been attempts to get the country into the help of social media with facebook with google and at the end of the day the results are small so the government is well aware that there's a lot majority of the french you do not want these children to come back to not see them as being french see them as being out the children of jihadi fathers whom they
might be mourning so the government has got a hot potato on this it's a difficult decision to eat it's not popular earned earth there's also the understanding in france that many of the terrorist acts that have been committed in france were by people who were actually what by the police and at the end of the day the police could not determine at what time they would. take action and so these people were well known and still they managed to go out and kill french people that doesn't make you popular to bring potential more of the. a dog up wearing lipstick and long eyelashes were spotted a few days ago in madrid and barcelona on the side of a bus the fear of a bill is part of a campaign by ultra conservative catholics who are unhappy about spanish laws on gender violence which they claim discriminate against men the bus told several other spanish cities in the run up to international women's day on friday the campaign was organized under the hash tag stop femi nazi s which is how the
organizers refer to certain types of feminist expose men explain why. gender laws are really very. very very bad laws because the discriminate of men from women in the penalty of the pinnacle discriminate also or in the presentation of innocence it's breakin and symbol of equality that is in our constitution what we are asking is for it or that is what should always be prime minister are asking for but in fact there are they're not asking for a lot of it but they are asking for supremacism in a giant way the campaign is seeking the repeal of a two thousand and four nor on gender violence under way special courts and rehabilitation centers were created to protect women at risk are people on twitter have been back coming up with a few of their own alternative bus slogans and accusing the campaign of being very behind the times but
a confidence advocate joe on the morale is things the hit the bus fails to get its point across. i personally think it's quite hard to take a group an organization seriously when they use that has inflicted so much pain and many people so it's quite hard to just really picture understand what the organizations phanatic and i don't think he's the right person to use the basic this campaign specially what they're trying to do that i don't personally agree that the current do you think is a bit of an insult to women especially because of what he was about and what he thought about women in particular and the stammer and trying to do it and now i do agree that something needs to be done but again senate violence is where men and women demand many when it happened both ways so maybe it's not the rap hasn't again do you think it might be insulting to men directly. south africa's anti racism drive has had a hurdle after incendiary remarks from an m.p. who said true freedom will only come when the white population is subservient to
the black. i don't want blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have been feeling we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic workers julius malema is the leader of the economic freedom fighters it's a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years malema has national debate with his views on race and class he's twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people and he was also expelled from the governing a and c. party in two thousand and twelve for sowing divisions within the organization. the apartheid policy in south africa and more than two decades ago but the country is still struggling with racism white people make up just nine percent of south africa's population but only more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts
to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government but both the problem and the efforts to solve it according animosity across the board. the general ideology of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't one that want to obliterate you want to and completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and uplifting and exploiting black people in the government it gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean
a good country. thirty five thousand white families own eighty percent of the land we don't own as i speak to you as a black person in south africa i almost think i am in fact i think a tenant white people always think everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is their wide. thinking it is just what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says you must take the learned even these politicians controlled by money who has money why its when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why people are somehow denial lists of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect.
for young people in the u.k. taking a trip across the pond is becoming less of an attraction with many blaming donald trump for making the united states uncool reporting from london. that transatlantic road trip they used to be most students dream holiday things like route sixty six or recreating the journeys of the beatniks from only the road or feminist fugitives like bella and louise but according to the u.k.'s biggest youth travel operator the kids of today no longer consider the us a cool destination backpacking trips and holidays over to america are down twenty three percent from the start of the year and the travel operators are blaming it on something called the trump slump they say that socially conscious millennial is an generation's ias a shining america because their perch off by none other than the president himself
would you shun would you shun a trip to the u.s. because of trouble yeah i can understand why people think so would you very sure mark on holiday would it be kind of top of your list of where you want to go not the top of a line on him i don't know she's never really appealed to me and especially with all the poses going on and so it's not like there's a no you prefer to go some are a bit more. culturally appropriate. would you want to go to america or just donald trump but you will know all too personally so you're not bothered i'll go america which you do you go to trip you have the opportunity to go to america you still go you know like i wouldn't care but don't try to i don't like what he does but like i like to go but it's probably not to my lists for me just so we moneywise maybe i'd like to try but i think i think going for a holiday those very different going over that's live all i see is migration and everything and so i really got to choose to live i think that everything going on
is quite intense and i think i want to but then again you know the whole thing is like parts and stuff so you know it's already great very that bastion of even here to say. you know coming to. you cry because of political situations so i don't think that really should have an impact on people true seeing the whole data scenario and say it's still still travel oh it's also true we america is great i don't know about in denver colorado or where we're from but i can tell you i don't like don't try very much if you aren't from the us would you go to the us on holiday with probably not really well i doubt. i'd probably just want to stay here where where i know what's going on where there's no chaos whatsoever and it's still very very calm on advertising. you can come to america and that's it for me on the news team in moscow for this hour i'll have you can join me again the next edition of the weekly in just about half an hour's times here.
i think it's gone into a nihilistic theme. and get out to traveling across america to find what makes america the charlatans the genius of this place especially american hero this is it we've come a point from a challenge done something we always are on the margins something. called gun culture is really important. we're starting last with. we're going to headed east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the b. i think i want to leave now doesn't anymore i'm gonna miss you may be completely different but in this.
way bank of press that we bother to think of all the news about those people see them as a completely. so. the justice department said today the inmate population of federal and state prisons in this country is at an all time high. the public sees a need for more prisons because crime is the number one concern to me willingness to move too many inmates in not enough space. and other crime another. country and already fed up with the stuff to. come your way snakes in america with all of this going to. prison population or just want to. comment on.
a shocking new number was released today that deserves our undivided attention one out of every one hundred americans is now behind bars walked up to the prison board trade. the most important thing. is to talk from your heart if you have more than one child give them like an overall message but then do an individual one to each child throw them a kiss or talk to them about what you do daily the rest should be just you if you've written a porn we've had people pray we've had people saying one guy showed his little boy how to shoot a basket the creative.
