5:01 am
a whole range of respect because that's one of the problems the traditional owners are really concerned about is the water that could be directly impacted in a short while this. other good afternoon just to midday or moscow this is out international broadcasting run the wolf marty h.q. kevin i'm with you that for the next half hour with this we'll news update that started with this news donald trump has refused to end america's support for the saudi led intervention in yemen the united states sells billions of dollars worth of arms to the kingdom's coalition forces for the own going airstrikes against toothy rebels there all this coincides with warnings of a civilian cholera epidemic in yemen with two thousand suspected cases recorded every day now four years of intense fighting of created what aid agencies say is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
5:02 am
the trumpet ministrations faced bit of criticism for authorizing military supplies to saudi arabia as. president donald trump was elected on promises of ending u.s. involvement in the wars around the world great nations do not fight endless wars. but he's not particularly came in stopping us help to saudi arabia and it's dead link campaign against the yeah man. i am returning here with without my approval a joint resolution that proposed to direct the president to remove united states armed forces from his still it sees in or affecting the republic of yemen with so
5:03 am
it's an exceptions trump used his presidential power to shoot down a resolution from congress and sought to end the u.s. involvement in the four year war since twenty fifteen the saudi led coalition along with the united states has been waging a deadly campaign against rebels and their allies in yemen what more in march saudi arabia pledged a billion dollars to yemen while denying any culpability in the humanitarian crisis there pressure to end u.s. support escalated after the killing of jamal khashoggi a saudi journalist inside of riyadh's embassy in turkey the united states will no longer participate in the saudi lead. in the saudi learned to venture in yemen which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on earth limiting americans engagement in this war which is going on far too long we all
5:04 am
agree but these cross party appeals fell on deaf ears barely denting trumps love for his favorite middle eastern monarchs saudi arabia and i get along great with all of my apartments for me to spend forty million sixty million of my supposed to dislike them i like them very much but to be fair trump is certainly not the first u.s. president to lavish his affection on to the kingdom's rulers the united states and saudi arabia as of strong important friendship and he knows and i know that. the fact that he has chosen to take this first visit. to the united states is indicative of friendship between the united states and saudi arabia but where do the american people stand they want to. u.s. alliance with saudi arabia it's terrible i'm against that for the u.s. . stands in financial support for such conflicts kind of says something that
5:05 am
i'm not sure they really want to achieve that message there's a lot of civilians that are paying the price for games that politicians didn't play i was a saloon flues with the saudis so i will be surprise about it disagree just how the saudi works the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia boils down to billions of dollars in oil imports and weapons sales it's long been fundamental to u.s. foreign policy when it comes to the middle east region however now in the era of trump it seems pretty clear that certain voices are getting pretty sick of it caleb mopp and r.t. new york more reaction coming in to international charity the norwegian refugee council says donald trump is veto is going to mean only more suffering and only more deaths the united states has an obligation as one of the leading the nations and being a main supporter of this nation but also as one of the top donors many
5:06 am
humanitarian response it has a responsibility to make sure that civilians are protected the reality is otherwise we see that the u.s. is not holding this out do not go audition in any way. for the attacks on civilians here we are talking about the disproportionate. force by united states towards one part of this conflict that is the. moves like this one that's. had in any way in recent confidence on the ground and in leading to peace this is just that they're breaking this suffering more and more weapons will mean more than . yemen is. another story we keep a close eye on today four year we're going to brief you on the heavily redacted version of the report on the trial russia collusions due to be released later today
5:07 am
thursday it brings to a close than a two year long investigation into alleged russian links to donald trump's campaign team in the twenty sixteen presidential election and you may recall of course the big news last month the summary of it came out saying there was no evidence to suggest conspired with moscow but that wasn't of the democrats' next today is only part trying to report even the release of this full document now won't put the accusations to bed it seems. it was clear almost immediately that u.s. attorney general william barr wouldn't get away with just a letter to congress when the trump ating army saw or heard the words no collusion all they wanted was the full molar papers the big days arrived kind of i'll remind you of how exactly mr barr gave the ok i will be in a position to move forward expeditiously in determining what can be released in
5:08 am
light of the pick regulations and department to policies it looks like quite a few lines will be redacted william barton came up with four specific categories to be blacked out let's whip through those you won't see anything known as grand jury material info that could affect on go in legal cases data that could damage the privacy or interests of third parties and finally intelligence gathering sources and methods the left wings grip on the idea that donald trump obstructed justice is so tight that perhaps all that's left visible in the moeller report won't be enough for them anyway remember rachel maddow questioned blitz last month what attorney general william barr has just given to congress really it does raise a lot of questions that we never thought we would be asking i think about how this investigation is being resolved i bet she'll have many more after thursday's
5:09 am
release the good news for the russia gaiters in the bar letter was the part that said the russians still tried to interfere even without any kind of collusion the special counsel's investigation to determine that there were two main russian efforts to influence the twenty sixteen election and obviously in that bar baby memo there was no room for evidence of all the shady dealings the. moeller team has already triggered legal action against a russian company supposedly a meddling force without explaining to the firm's lawyers what they're using as proof for the indictment why is that info is too sensitive to be given out does that ring a bell what if the russians get hold of it plus nobody ever properly explained how it was found that russia hacked the democrat servers if investigators didn't get
5:10 am
access to the actual d.n.c. hardware there will be those who want to get answers to questions way off rachel maddow is list but remember the rules sensitive almost certainly means redacted the democrats have already set it up to to dispute the the report based on the redactions which is really kind of another cheap factor in their part because obviously there will be some adaptions their intelligence sources and methods that are involved in the report that the protection of people who participated in the investigation who are not under any kind of suspicion democrats will use that to say there's still something there they're not going to be satisfied because they're not really interested in the truth they're interested in making political points from it so even if there is proving that there is no collusion and no obstruction that central thesis remains that somehow trump owes his presidency to the russians and that's a fundamental flaw that hasn't been challenged and i don't think in the report
5:11 am
pointed out to the president if you don't address it head on you're not going to be exonerated. a group of anti fracking protesters in australia have come up with a lawful way to get the message across. i. got money to listen to some wrecking our country i'm putting i want to. use it when we bring this is happening you mean. this kind of story's been a focus of so many countries around the world will focus on a story critics say fracking is going to huge impact on the environment including possible earthquakes because this high pressure used to go down to be injected that force down into the rock to bring all the gas all back up from the bedrock below it
5:12 am
also increases goes without saying i guess the risk of oil spills and pollution something that can lead to various health problems so regarding this area a strain is northern territory then i was to moratorium on fracking back in september twenty sixth but it seems that bond was then you turned last year with the government investing over eight million dollars instead to accelerate the development of the industry reason being they had said it will create thousands of jobs and help the country's economy but environmentalist graeme sawyer disagrees with that he's got significant doubts about those claims there's a whole range of respect is and that's one of the problems the additional owners are really concerned about is that the water that could be directly impacted in the short term while this is fracking not only threatens their livelihood and their ability to drink water it also threatens their cultural knowledge and information and their cultural practice but the northern territory government is in pretty bad style eleventh its economy and so the thinking that might be able to use this is
5:13 am
a way to. increase activity but the evidence would suggest other was the jobs question is really an interesting one because research out of queensland shows. for every ten jobs they created in the. last twenty four jobs that are destroyers in the area so there's some really big questions to be answered around those things as well as the environmental concerns. the european union's unhappy with facebook's latest efforts to prevent foreign interference in upcoming parliamentary elections in the bloc in fact in a letter to the social media giant brussels expressed concern that new advertising rules could affect cross border campaigning facebook's policy would prevent european political actors from using facebook facebook messenger and instagram for the e.u. wide paid communication campaigns this policy would put either political actors at the same level as foreign entities attempting to interfere in the e.u. elections under the new rules facebook employs more rigorous checks on advertisers
5:14 am
than it also imposes geographical limits and registration in the country where the odds are to be purchased which goes against the whole idea of political campaigning in the first place facebook justifies its actions saying its new policy is a safeguard against foreign interference. we wait the different risks and concluded that the right solution to help best guard against foreign interference is to only allow people to run advertisement in country if they have passed an authorization process could mean there are a result in that same country so good idea or too much of a heavy hand while the chairman of the u.k. based bowl group think tank says facebook's forgotten about its initial purpose and its initial goals this started because there were allegations that foreign parties were influencing. elections in other parts of the world now i think almost
5:15 am
all of those allegations of been disproved what facebook have done is they've they've looked at the fact that there's been a huge uproar. the amount of data they've been collecting on their own users and rather than restricting themselves which is what they should have been doing they've restricted the users which seems an entirely wrong headed approach for small organizations and for individuals that just want to comment on the political discourse it's going to get harder and harder and harder so big players will be able to comply with the new regulations but smaller players won't and i think that's ultimately injurious to the platform injurious to debates and injurious to democracy that's not how it should be and facebook ultimately began as a peer to peer a grassroots network essentially and i think if it strays away from that and it just becomes another big corporation then something else will take its place it's
5:16 am
midday fifteen if o'clock watching or if you tuned in around the world hope you have a good day here in moscow this is art international and still ahead in south africa over claims of racism at the top of the country's ruling party just one of the stories you got lined up for you after this short commercial break. you know world big. lot and conspiracies it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and 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.
5:17 am
so we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to. let it be an arms race. dramatic to follow only. exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. again francis fired back at the united states of possible sanctions and even vestments in cuba itself to u.s. national security adviser john bolton announced punitive measures on that caribbean island. today we are also announcing five additions to the cuba restricted list
5:18 am
which prohibits direct financial transactions with entities tied to cuba's military intelligence and security services and personnel we are also announcing that the department of the treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict non-family travel to cuba foreign companies can also be sued for operating in cuba after washington lifted a ban on lawsuits but it's a decision that could have a major impact on me e.u. . biggest trading partner as it is at a time as well when transatlantic relations are already stretched the u.s. steps intended to pressure cuba into giving up support for venezuela's president nicolas maduro is that people have the say about it. and we're not all that it's crazy they want to govern you know parts of the world they can ruin their country i live here in cuba i'm cuban if it all goes wrong in my opinion what he did is criminal because he knows how much effort we make how hard it is oh yeah we will
5:19 am
let them take anything away. but this is one more effort completely cross-tree. trump administration attempting to push cuba as well as nicaragua and the country are those attempting significant change or sovereignty back it is meant as a punishment and will threat to other countries around the world that's meant to as a threat to the e.u. in terms of doing any business with cuba or when. is it going to change anything in cuba now anything in burma as well or is it illegal yes. a buyer lation international law on every level. the senior south african politicians being branded a racist for a black voters not to waste the ballots a white candidate but the ruling a.n.c. party secretary general denies claims of racism. don't ever vote for
5:20 am
a white person will never change the lives of black people they have oppressed us our main hope is the black vote the democratic alliance represents the white interest the elite and the privileged those comments really angered party veterans who described the remarks as inappropriate the government spin it pains to fight discrimination of late by launching a national campaign plan to combat rising racism white people currently make up only nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland and that seen an increasing number of calls from the black community to redistribute the country's wealth we got reaction from a former anti-apartheid activist and also the president of the black first land first party. i people are the beneficiaries of racism all of them were that there were liberal what i do even communists in south africa are white people benefited ecology to benefit thirty five thousand white families own eighty percent of the land they will not shed his lead with us they still maintain it up at that hold on
5:21 am
the economy so why would we not have a blacks only looking as asian fighting for black liberation why would any black person vote for what the man in that position who has the ability and he's fingertips the ability to hope try and remain was has happened let's not try to do it i just destroying even roll destroying it further and that is the saddest thing because that is not the opinion of the majority in this country i was arrested during apartheid for having brought up two black children living in my home at a time when it wasn't allowed and i think if one feels strongly enough about. one turn over power everything you can to oscillate it into watch and black you cannot get that. story from syria now people are getting on their inability try to feed

5:29 am
this explosion of freedom and free expression and the libertarian ideals of the early internet would have been laughed at but now we have allowed essentially just two or three corporations to pretty much control the entire online experience and lo and behold we have this headline from bloomberg internet consolidation opened the door to censorship titans like facebook google and apple defeat the purpose of a decentralized web the british government released proposals this week to hold online and social media platforms responsible for harmful content a few decades ago we might have scoffed at anyone who even thought they could regulate. people say on the internet no longer today the centralization of platforms and services providers makes them foresman surprisingly easy it's just a matter of picking which layer of the text to hold accountable but you know

pollution survival of the fittest relies on mutations and mutations come about through spontaneous. combustion if you will or spontaneity accidents collisions clar. and this is what makes us human now online censorship censoring the platform the primary platform in which we communicate means the end of evolution it means the extinction of humans as we know them and the beginning of this casino gleg era where our humanity has been destroyed but only purpose is to click on ads so yes it does seem like the matrix and a lot of ways we are the batteries that power a few corporations revenue model and the hackers of the internet era of the
