responsibility to protect women lives we need the companies to take a moral stance or at least have some sort of responsibility you can't trust these companies to tell you who's good who's bad you need to take that into your own hands. very welcome to you you're watching the weekly here on r.t. international our top story this hour in france one of the biggest strikes in years which was supposed to last just one day has turned into consecutive days of protests on saturday tensions were high as workers once again took to the streets across the country they were venting their anger against the government's plans to overhaul the pension system and on sunday more protests are expected with public transport disrupted amid fears of violence.
massive demonstrations were held once across the country on thursday leon most say and also clashes between riot police and protesters one of the largest trade union . and say 1500000 people marched in support of the protest while the interior ministry estimates just over half that took pas officers used tear gas to disperse the crowds with the most violent rallies occurring in the french compass oh sure the dubin ski witnessed them unfold. this strike has been planned for many months now and this is against a proposed changes by the french government to the pension system here in france the idea here is that they want to amalgamate number of different systems around 42 different systems into a universal system but people say that i will have a massive impact on their pensions because it will mean that their pensions perhaps could be lower in the feature or in fact that they might have to work even longer not as caused huge fury here in france the crimes go all the way back more than
a close to god do nor which is where this process was originally due to start off with what was come for many hours has turned to a huge tensions with clashes between the police and the protesters we saw a van that was certainly am on fire and they got tear gas really coming quite clearly stressed and you might get a sense of it just down that you can see their military gas come into the protesters shariah and move people away incredible is famous just being there and as you can hear you know we're seeing protests is smashing shops in front of us tear gas is bringing down and those crews are battling about battling to half contain this fire they've also been tensions elsewhere in fronts north just here tensions in places like i know and other cities the suggestion now is that this one day strike that was initially planned by transport workers and is
now encompassed teachers health workers the firefighters and even the police could now start a rooming strike in the lead up to christmas and going on. until it has destroyed his attempt to make the french government me think these pension reforms for the moment here in front of people are adamant that they want to have their voices heard it's come up to the streets to make sure that's happening. earlier this week nato leaders gathered in the u.k. to celebrate the military alliance is 70th anniversary but it turns out people in the host country have little knowledge of its relevance. most people what they think are the main 3 achievements of nato. in terms of achievements know very little i don't know what do you have no idea. how much you're i honestly don't know anything about how i saw the flags till the
day and only my husband recognized what it was poor it's a good question but let me think a little bit. so one is probably to be honest i don't have i don't have even one let us use the occasion to claim that nato is the most successful alliance in history though some of the members disagree as to what the main straights to the block are they did agree though to share its running costs more evenly something the us has long been simon right from political show in case you missed it gives an alternative take on the summit. 29 nation alliance which makes up the horror of the world's military spending yet still calls itself. has turned 70 congratulations nato leaders are lovely. in london some drinks spread some president trump accused the president of france and anyone michael of being nasty bullied the least popular. video from being laughed at by
trudeau micron and even boris johnson has been seen around the world today so i wouldn't say exactly plain sailing for this nato meeting but here come all the leaders now coming in with the. many surprises in. some way oh yeah i know that one i know that one. together last. next to you. leader of turkey that's the least popular turkey this christmas. in the happy day to. i suppose they are having to listen to this guy's trying to listen to. the one. before the main festivities started a select group of leaders have the tools to meet at the u.s. ambassador's residence wheeled in like kids going to. play ball the orange one sat on
a golden throne i suppose he does pay for nato presence after all something the head of the alliance un stoltenberg knows very well this critical need was the spine of the system. to get america to pay the bills you know i've always thought that being the head of nato must be the least powerful powerful job in the world so despite their recent differences france is a man you mark on did me trump a newsgroup with to put on a frankly awesome display of man spreading. and passive aggression if it were. it would be great if you know. it. ok because i don't know if. you could have something different from the us i didn't think about this but. the water. and a coke. is not well with nato which has become like any 70 year old
it's waistline has expanded since it's prolly become a bit of a financial burden to the family they can't work out who it is like small the russians the chinese all the middle easterns anniversary party was marred by protests in the british capital some demonstrators vented their anger against certain attendees well that is objected to nato pressuring its members to raise defense spending. r c america's rick sanchez asked his guests about the current purpose of nato and if it really is obsolete as donald trump once put it before he changes his mind. you're a diplomat you've had a lot of experience in this field what is it that nato either must do today to stay viable or does do we even need it anymore you know it's a bureaucracy in search of a mission i was right in 2016 when he said it was obsolete and so afraid was the establishment that he meant what he said on the very day he was inaugurated and they tried to ram through the addition of a new country montenegro thankfully they got it through because it turned out they
didn't have to worry about trump's intentions once he filled his administration with a bunch of bushies and retreads of the heritage foundation they've simply adopted the policies we've had the last few decades and somehow turned it into nato is obsolete into let's make nato great again we'll just strong on these countries to pay more for their defense against nobody in particular you think you know has in fact outlived its usefulness i thought so in 1909 and i think so today it's been as a list of from a standpoint of being a naturalized american and having read the founding fathers warning you can't seem to angling alliances i mean what is this but in entangling alliances it's our own foreign policy that did reason nato is being kept around by the foreign policy hawks in washington is not because it's necessary for the actual military operations and nato itself doesn't really contribute a whole hell of a lot there are very few countries with the notable exception i want to say france and turkey but it put a bit in as if this is not a good idea for the united states and its very close allies to have an association
a military but i would call so is that sense what i was trying to say france and turkey could theoretically mount independent military operations everybody else is just a hanger on and they're just window dressing for us military operations but the are literally like roman exactly erisa want to do what i've been hearing go bad what word the word of the dysfunction world or what that is what it seems to be a dismissive alliance and $991.00 when the soviet union and the warsaw pact with out of business nato should have as well as why didn't they let russia in i mean that literally that time i've read on many occasions buddha himself has said why don't you get is that. oh you're going to say you know it was but one of the european european nato has said if we did that the nato would be like the un just to talk shop it couldn't take action by which they meant military action. listen to what you just said yeah you're saying it doesn't work if we don't have enemies exactly what if we had. the ability to inflict military force and i dare to say aggression in places like serbia libya whatever we want to using nato as
a platform but i mean it could change by the way russia could be s.o.b.'s at one time like the 1950 s. but not so much now right but why don't you have a system that allows that ability because because who's interest has. had all these all these were these these military companies and these bureaucrats who have the dice for rice balls at the expense of their taxpayers because there is a threat out there is a bear in the woods. russia has denied it's been unwilling to cooperate with german authorities over the investigation into the murder of a georgia national in august that's off the berlin expelled 2 russian diplomats on wednesday claiming that moscow hasn't been forthcoming enough russian foreign minister sergei lavrov told r.t. that it appears not will again be playing for a crime it was never involved in. the federal foreign office today declared to employees of the russian embassy in berlin to be persona non-grata with this step the federal government reacts the fact that the russian authorities despite
repeated high level and in fact requests did not sufficiently participate in the investigation of the murder of tony k.k. in berlin zoo. they said we did not cooperate enough this is groundless some countries today recalled the tragedy of m.h. 17 my dutch counterpart said we didn't do enough then we supplied them with all the necessary information with data from our radars and so on we gave them everything we're all the satellite images the us promised nobody answered that we asked them what kind of cooperate. and they want from us they responded by saying you have to confess you did it that would be corporative if germany wants to follow suit nothing good will come of it that's not a good way to deal with anyone and with russia in particular. the murder in question happened in late august in 1 of the parks the 40 year old victim was shot and killed while on his way to a mosque eyewitnesses they are cyclists shot the man in the back of the head and
then fled the scene the slain man selim can congress really also known as tony k k was a georgian citizen who since 2017 had lived in germany as an asylum seeker he had ties to a high profile chechen terrorists in russia and fought against russian troops and police during the 2nd chechen war the man was wanted by russian authorities on terrorism charges the case was seized on by the controversial beilin katz investigative group which along with german newspaper just spiegel were quick to point the finger at moscow with allegations that russian authorities had helped the assassin create his fake identity economist ike harmer told is the evidence presented so far has been inconclusive. i can definitely see that there are certain interests who want to poison the relationship between russia and germany but it seems that there is some cleaning up we're going on with isis and everything around and this high profile terrorist who might be related to
all these happenings in there with isis and syria and so on so i think there can be many more reasons why this was done and who did this apart from russia the problem is that we cannot trust any of those explanations from german governments at all it was already was a scream it was with iraq all these so-called big evidences turned out to be just nothing and in this case to make such a big thing send it to people whole is without any proven fact it is just a disgrace and i'm feeling very ashamed of the federal bureau of foreign affairs. popular free dating out such as tender are not protecting their users from sex offenders on their platforms as according to a near investigation by american nonprofit organization pro publica the probe took
a look at more than 150 against events of sexual assault over the past decade and found that the majority of victims were women who met their attackers through much ups and 10 percent of cases they were paired with men who had already been accused or convicted of sex crimes. while much group which owns over 40 of the most popular apps says they do conduct background checks on their members but only for paid accounts further the company says it disputes the investigations findings. the implication that we know about such offenders on our side and don't fight to keep them off is as outrageous as it is falls as technology evolves we will continue to aggressively deploy new tools to eradicate bad actors including users of our free products where we are not able to obtain sufficient and reliable information to make meaningful bank ground checks possible. generalist at spectator magazine and way 7 at women's rights advocates gave us their thoughts on dating platforms that
less screening policies. the match group is a $1000000000.00 company there is no reason why they couldn't allocate just a small portion of their revenue to screen the people on their ab just so that there's just a smaller since of increased safety it's a precaution it's a measure but it's deserved if they appear if they're suddenly saying that we want in order to join the service we want to perform background checks on everyone who joins 1st of all that would kill the business and they know it there's a moral responsibility on these companies that are making billions of dollars 1700000000 dollars from women looking for love to say oh you know what it's too expensive for us to do a little bit to protect you nobody's going to want to join these apps with these kind of 1 if they're doing that they're being this invasive about background checks with that said people maybe shouldn't be on them especially women and not only are
these dangerous for women but it's destroying women so just get off the dating apps if you don't perform your own background checks in your own time with your own money get off we're not going to restrict women from using the internet because there are predators we do desire for these companies to at least take the step into the right direction why do you want to put that kind of power on these monolithic tech companies and up saying you know ban women from dating apps i'm simply saying you shouldn't rely on this and you can't trust these companies to tell you who's good and who's bad you need to take that into your own hands so if you meet someone do a background check before you did for you go out on a date if they work in tandem with the courts to get the names at least of the 1st and last names in the location of where these people are and perhaps create some type of monitor of their internet that's a step in the right direction it's going to be a mess i think no matter what and there's always going to be people who perhaps squeak through or don't get picked up who then commit assaults and crimes get
a gun ladies. protect yourselves and we don't win and by the way these incidences are obviously extremely rare and you know by and large the vast majority of men are not sexual predators one woman is enough we need the companies to take a moral stance or at least have some sort of responsibility to protect the women that utilize their app and then what happens you know it's it's never going to be a perfect system coming up on the program us 2020 preelection rivalry season unexpected turn with the babies go to character from the latest star wars saga spin off out trending democratic front runners on social media that sound of the stories that shape the week after this very short break.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic development is only going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. nato the defensive alliance that has shaken several countries it's the union of the supposedly like minded that can't agree on what the main threats that it's the appear to me of military might the 3rd to be both in great shape and brain dead at the same time as the organization celebrates its 70th anniversary is a fine time for it to think about good times.
welcome back well it's been a rocky start for some u.s. presidential election campaigns with several front is already stumbling at the 1st hurdle and dropping out but it seems the baby yoda character from a star wars spin off could be a quite successful kind of that if it through its name into the 2020 race according to a recent poll baby yoda is out trending old democratic hopefuls on social media including front one is joe biden and bernie sanders but that's not going to stop those 2 on the many others from still up for consideration striving to be called the perfect candidate my downstairs has the story. in this imperfect world of ours the hooli grail is finding something perfect it is of course impossible but
goodness there they really try every 4 years in america elections the eternal search for the perfect candidate a smallish chink in there who we are than that our armor is enough to sink him or her and i really mean the smallest chink for example pete booted judge currently ranked 4th in the democrat candidate polls he's a darling a mayor a family guy openly gay and he even has a disabled dog i mean what an angel but then i see he went too far he helped the homeless participated in salvation army charity events and that's a christian organization which is sometimes accused of homophobia you know hard core christians and all apparently race issues aren't the only thing. is slow to
grasp what is his excuse for not realizing the salvation army is homophobic hard to imagine a more succinct visual metaphor for i will gleefully work for the active destruction of my people if it makes me seem in a yacht or more electable than booted shorter within a seriously antic with salvation army these activists are literally accusing an openly gay man of supporting homophobia just just let it sink in you haven't dropped out of the race yet unlike camelot harris and one of her crimes as a half black half tamil indian woman was that she just wasn't black enough skin pigmentation seems to really really matter for a presidential candidate then you. have bernie sanders spent his life trying to power the poor and for his troubles had the d.n.c.
election rigged it against him last time around but bernie just doesn't get it america doesn't want someone who cares so much for the poor sanders just does not understand that a $15.00 minimum wage will hurt the job market and there's no way we can afford to make education free for everyone and on top of bernie's you know principles and decency he's just ancient. get on much like former vice president and controller see magnate joe biden e's neck deep in just the weirdest stuff begin getting really close and taking a nice sniff of people's hair now embroiled in ukraine gate he got his little boy a nice cushy job that pays a standing amounts in ukraine the poorest nation in europe and modern civil war to
boot oh sure he can remember all that stuff them ages getting the better of him to his memory isn't what it was then we have elizabeth warren who hasn't quite yet figured out who she is in case you missed it she tried to pass a self off as part native american which was an exaggeration by which i mean it was entirely made up bashing. no one it seems is good enough homosexual homophobe a black woman who isn't black enough an old man that's obsessed with helping the people that need help biden in his head sniff it and seriously what the hell then again perhaps people wouldn't need pics so much if you know they had something else to talk about. if these people had a plan beyond beating trump a clear plan for america and americans but hey maybe not i mean

election doesn't exist for the more rope we give them the sooner we are all hand. written. and. this is a murder that was caught on video the murder was committed by the great street crips it was an in-house murder meaning that a street crypt killed another great street crips oftentimes gang members killed by cold and one of the code says to never commit crimes against your own gang members in this particular scenario or murder investigation there was a. transplant that was a narcotics user he went to purchase narcotics from 3 crew members on the narcotics
was either bad or he was somehow slighted on it as a result he went to another great street cred gang member in got a gun with a gun the transience shot and killed a street gang member at the time of the shooting there was another great street gang member with each person that was killed the victim of the murder and according to the game code he asked to make amends for allowing a gang member to be killed on his own watch. if he doesn't act toward take. some sort of action against the shooter that he will be disciplined by his own gang so. in this scenario that particular crips gang member. carries out the murder against the great street gang member who provided the gun to the transit and it's all caught on video. this is inside jordan downs it's mid day and you can see there's about 10 to 15 gang members loading the parking lot.
