covered here of the past seven days a bit later first bringing you up to speed on the weekends developments though and sanctions threats accusations and protests the political crisis in venezuela deepens the capital caracas has been gripped by both pro and anti-government demonstrations opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president would rest his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the madeira government. the solution is intervention thief. they tried to fabricate this whole show claiming the military would join them but there is only one answer yes to loyalty and no to be true. is called was made by one white go on monday after returning an international tour does heat up the
already tense climate minister was up in two or three days in a row in a massive bloodless one at the bit that i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water no food the government should step down there is 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 door and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. for outside help washington's trying to cripple caracas financially in a bid to oust nicolas maduro the u.s. state department even went so 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 guy joe 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 and 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 completely since three weeks he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president though as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the mission so they're fifty countries is not even close that it's the time to act in support of democracy and some 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 oppression was stepped up further up on. the weekend u.s. vice president mike pence announced that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas maduro would have the u.s. visa revoked washington special envoy to venezuela abrahams and sanctioning third parties the vesa port of the venezuelan media and the u.s. national security advisor john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venezuela and cuba i think the whole region should stand against caracas . takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate whose side people should be on. the united states is exceptional literally thou owned by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like they decide which dictators rule and which don't know the state supports any number of dictators who violate 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 ninety's 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 he's a wella 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 pagi because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that venezuela asked for it not even america's champ there but you know see broad support for i believe that there is respectful put the united states we're used to plumbers in work with our partners to expel every last iranian group 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 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 monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn
continents oh you've got to be special all right bill. 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 arbenz or the interventions that he 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. and are the headline news the other vast movement has again taken to the
streets of paris and its continuing stand against the french government. this. will be on the capitol building twenty eight thousand protesters rallied nationwide the all of us protests have been ongoing for seventeen consecutive weekends with demonstrators demanding improvements to living standards that's just putting national debates on the issues is also erupted in the french cities of. hundreds of demonstrators gathered reports of a number of injuries the protesters sustained in the standoff with police. hundreds
of islamic state fighters have surrendered to u.s. backed forces in the syrian village of beit coups the last i saw held area near the iraqi border but as medina cultivar explains the rafi is the terrorists just biding their time. the small syrian village of the goose has been out focal point for the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now and it's been cold the last remaining on clay for feisal forces since a real and not without good reason the world has seen crackdown suffer scaping civilians and even jihadists who chose to surrender him and addition to the terrorists there also their wives and children too. praising the islamic state with the 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 mixtape 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 actually responsible for what's happening on the ground for instance they had of us central command while he is 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 or 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 that forms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know it's some future damion 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 you see 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 i says
is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. relatives of the children of french who had these have appealed to the united nations for the youngsters to be allowed back into frumps they're currently being held in camps in syria and could have stopped now one of the lawyers who helped lodge the plea says the children will be able to adapt to a normal life in front. with these people in the french people every day for three years in a row i'm being told that these 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 social. the are ok they were saved 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 fighting but these children hadn't asked to be born there they hadn't asked to be taken there their innocent victims. according to the save the children charity are there now
more than two and a half thousand children in camps in northern syria and they hail from around thirty different nations now married those who you know you just heard from there thinks around one hundred of these children are french now 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 around two thirds sixty seven percent of respondents didn't want them in france and we spoke to the father of one of the victims of the cyclone concert massacre in paris which was masterminded by i so he thinks the children of jihad should suffer the consequences of their parents' actions. all parents are bearing responsibility for the future of their children they've left france voluntarily nobody forced them out they've decided to fight against france 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 there have been lots of results are small so the government is well aware that there's a lot majority of the french who do not want these children to come back do not see them as being french see them as being the children of jihadi fathers whom they might be more named so the government has a hot potato on this it's a difficult decision to take and it's not popular and 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 watched by the police and at the end of the day the police could not determine at what time they would. take action and said in 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 those. one of the week's coverage ahead including a setback for racism in south africa and why young british tourists shunning the united states all when the weekly returns in
a couple of minutes from now. if i'm honest. i solicit my ex in the future. to recognize the fact that is that is why i'm like formally and also to me that they were perhaps wrong in. condemning him or siding against and so with glee in the early stages of the war so they're terrified to undermine the reconstruction process by the prolongation of sanctions i think it was in countries with winds as you ation where this is serious reconstructed by the way in which he started by a third power not russia iran not by the west and by the g.c.c. .
a lot of south africa's anti racism drive has had a loft or in century 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 stirred a national debate with his views on race and class he's twice been convicted of
hate speech and inciting violence against white people was also expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve more than two decades ago but the country is still struggling with racism white people make up just under nine percent of south africa's population but own 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 efforts to solve it according animosity across the board. 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 wonder that want to obliterate you want to and completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and not getting them
exploiting black people the government 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 only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i owed nothing i am in fact i think that 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 the white. thinking it is true what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the land even these politicians controlled by money who has money why it's 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 many of them blaming donald trump for making the united states uncool reporting from london his party boyo. 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 old the road or feminist fugitives like bella and louis s. 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 america 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 appropriate. would you want to go to america or just donald trump but you're not 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 first probably not to my list major so we moneywise maybe i'd like that . 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 kind of choose to live i think with everything going on is quite intense and i think i want to but then again you know the whole thing is like bricks and stuff so you know it's already great very that bastion of hard even here to say. you know coming to the u.k. because of political situations i really should have a new pair. some people are choosing the whole day the scenary should say still still travel. 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 probably not really why don't. i 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. like you know.
drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse he started going after the users in the prison population sewer we started treating sick people people who are addicted 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. a long sentence in this for boring or minor offenders in the drug trade it's a lot watching your children grow up and miss you in waves and say by daddy as you're walking out of the business it's just it doesn't get easier. it was not it molded you to trade or labor or a stand there's an environment standouts in the original nafta fifty five years ago those were kicked out because relations were more punitive konami but now the
revision is very very close intertwined saw i think it's ok to have a new treaty and you negotiation. my thing. gone into a non mystic fever. thanks to the road and get out the traveling across america what makes america the showed the. american hero this is a point. we always are on the courageous and the. culture . we're starting west with is going to head east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the bee i think i want to leave now doesn't do any more ground though the earth may be completely different to the.
polar welcome to worlds apart as the syrian the war winds down so does the moral grandstanding around its conduct coming spondylitis they denouncing serious treatment of the rubbles and their families many western powers are now eager to leave their own citizens in syria including the most vulnerable how come human rights are so absent in the discussions about the fate of isis fighters and especially their children to discuss that i'm now joined by samuel ramani a doctoral candidate in international relations at the universe there of oxford ceremony is going to talk to you thank you very much for your time thank you very
much for inviting me now if there is one phrase capturing the western trail of the syrian war that would be assad's killing his own people that was the main promise for his. suppose that illegitimacy he's disregard for his own people for the civilians where is this concern for one's own people all for one's own citizens now when hundreds of western born women and their children are fleeing areas like boose in eastern syria i think this is a very interesting question because the movement of foreign fighters in the movement of people western countries to isis is a relatively unprecedented phenomenon because isis was the largest or territorial control of any terrorist organization has ever been so they are now under the situation where there be a fan or they're saying that these people have loss or a to legitimacy and loss or right this isn't just because they participated in treasonous i have a day they support a group that is blatantly advocated violence against individuals and some of them
are the wisest poses of people who are involved for example in the two thousand and fifteen paris bombing or in the thousands and you mentioned serving the bombing so they're viewed as criminals as a choice between whether it is more safe to leave them there and let the disperse to turkey to iraq where they can say radicalized and they get status shamus or bring them back have a trial be released in short order and then restart their activities and western style now if specialized in russian foreign policy long enough to know that the russians never missed a chance to point out western double standards but i think it goes beyond that it's a legal issue why should these people the isis fighters and their families be dumped in somebody else's territory if it is developed there's been some outliers truly for example the way of one of the probably end is for the fifteen pairs bomber who are said they would rather one stay in syria they return to the west because the french have launched air strikes against their family but the majority
if given the opportunity would definitely want to come back to their home country even if they know they're going to face trial you know they know they can almost certainly the central prison sentence and russia has definitely invited its own people back to their own consciousness and of course of instances where they've got like the one where they got a six year prison sentence for.
