some of london's old pay reparations for having links to the colonial era trade. just after 7 am in los angeles 10 pm in shanghai and 5 in the evening here in the russian capital welcome to our 2 international i mean and. china is threatening to retaliate against the u.s. after president signed on executive order counseling hong kong's preferential trade status mr trump. proof the hong kong autonomy act passed by congress earlier this month which imposes sanctions on officials involved in china's new security law beijing has dismissed the act as a piece of scrap paper. made from really that you sound the us act militia's least
lander's hong kong's national security legislation and grossly interferes in hong kong a fairy's in china's internal affairs the chinese government strongly opposes this and strongly condemns that the us sides attempts to obstruct the implementation of hong kong's national security law will never succeed in order to save guard its own interests china will make the necessary sponsor and impose sanctions on relevant u.s. personnel and to tease. earlier my colleague took a closer look at the u.s. china disputes with our senior correspondent right because they have. he is concerned worried and angry at china but in this particular. in this particular episode yes it is it is what trump threatened to do should beijing introduce these new security laws in hong kong and what they are is basically a restriction on with the criticism of the chinese government in hong kong for example it outlaws any calls for independence
a session from china for hong kong as well as outlawing publishing by by life in prison you know mingling with the wrong crowds or being on the payroll of foreign entities who want to see chinese authority in hong kong diminish and in this case trump trump has said that since the freedom in hong kong has been extinguished there is no reason to give it special privileges on car and will now be treated the same as male in journey no special privileges or special economic treatment and no export of sensitive technologies there's a whole host of sanctions that are going to be introduced against hong kong and chinese officials deemed responsible for introducing this new security bill there's a whole list of grievances that trump has towards china towards hong kong and it just keeps growing steadily but quickly there is for example the whole mess in the
south china sea all the territorial claims that china has made there that the united states has condemned that is turning into a military conflict build sides saber rattling there you know the said being nuclear with nuclear power nuclear armed jets to patrol their ships aircraft carriers there's also the issue of china refusing to join any arms control treaties that the united states wants them to be a part of this the huge trade surplus something the trumpeters hated from the get do so and of course i would say the most painful for an interim site the crew in a virus pandemic big no mistake we hold china fully responsible for concealing the virus and unleashing it upon the world could have stopped it they should have stopped it. would have been very easy to do at the source when it tried and want to sell something to europe to america this all sorts of restrictions and all sorts of tariffs all kong was a little liberal window that belonged to china through which the chinese government
or the chinese companies could sell things to the west all by things like sensitive technologies relatively simply with minimal tariffs now that's god there are more than a 1000 western companies that are based have offices in hong kong he's willing to through even his room under the bus to make china hurt what about weiwei that he's been back on that lately and yeah you know for all the talk of free markets and globalism they really seem to dislike competition because what you are way does is it makes 5 g. tech for example amongst other things and it makes it cheap so how do you make people stop buying something that's cheap effective and make them turn expensive western analogs you do this by saying that chinese take is somehow tainted for me end of this year telecoms operators must not buy any 5 to equipment from huawei and
once the telecom security bill is passed it will be illegal for them to do so the united states is going to do a lot of effort to plod lot of effort in coercing and convincing its allies to dumb who our way which is a reputational glue for china you know this is this is it's brown this is a chinese brown and an economic blow and you know just just to add insult to injury trump has come out and said that what is happening who are being kicked out of the united states out of europe is he's achievement we can bridge many countries many countries and i did this myself for the most work not to use while way. because we think it's an unsafe security risk it's a big security risk one thing you can say about the chinese is the never rash the never recklessly always waited out these like characteristics so we can expect
a response you have chinese press coming out and saying that you know action needs to be taken we need to assure them that we can't be bullied this easily so we can expect the response from china and now it's going to be a response on 2 fronts 1st what's happening in hong kong and what is happening to our way which is being the said she removed from western markets by the united states. so another headline stories the u.s. military is facing down allegations of systemic sexual violence in its ranks there is greater scrutiny since the recent tragic killing of soldier. the 20 year old vanished in late april her body was fun to weeks ago. apparently complained to her family that she had been sexually harassed while serving at fort hood in texas a fellow soldier suspected of killing vanessa with a hammer committed suicide as law enforcement tried to arrest prosecutors also charged another woman believed to be his accomplice iness heartbroken sister wants
to know why commanders didn't do more. 1st military chiefs dismissed the sexual harassment allegations stand she hated but last week nationwide for each group the u.s. army secretary ordered a review of the command climate and culture at the base the texas representative in congress confirmed the locations of sexual abuse would also be scrutinized. well finesses killing has led other service women to come forward with similar harling stories of sexual assault they bring taking to social media to call what they describe as ingrained harassment in the u.s. military former soldier trysted who was also stationed in texas talked to us through what she say's happened to her. i got invited to
a party off base and was told that it was a birthday party for one of the other girls that was going to start class with us at that same time we had not yet started class i mean myself and the other guys wanted to see what i needed and so i passed it around and when i got it back it didn't seem as though anyone had drink anything but i just kind of thought that was different but didn't really think much of it and kind of felt as though i could feel myself kind of blacking out and then the next morning when i got up to use the restroom and take a shower i realized how much pain i was actually in and i was still bleeding and i just you know i kind of was wondering well what happened and i tried really hard to remember and i couldn't the case actually has not developed i went back to legal help and they told me after about 4 months investigating that there was no evidence and that the case would be dropped the pentagon issued a report in the april in the mounting number of claims of sexual assaults in the
u.s. military trust again say plenty of cases are glossed over and that independent investigators are crucial. i saw a lot of females that i actually worked with that experienced harassment and assault and even rape so i just thought it was crazy that this is actually the culture of it and no one is talking to each other about it so it is happening and it's happening a lot. and just the amount of control that the military has to keep it kind of quiet is is what is surprising there needs to be an alternative to reporting there needs to be a civilian organization that's not affiliated with with the military whatsoever i believe that there's they do claim that there's resources off base that you can go to but they're still affiliated with the military they're still able to kind of so we've been under the rug to them believe just
a completely separate organization where women can go and i believe that there shouldn't be any type of punishment for coming forward and speaking out. i just believe that it needs to bring more awareness to the civilian part of you know the community. and to government rallies swept through jerusalem choose the night police use crowd control weapons on protesters who defied orders to follow social distancing regulations demonstrators were calling on the israeli prime minister to resign he faces trial on corruption charges here's a quick look at how the scenes unfolded. liz. please. cut.
cut. while thousands of protesters tried to break into the prime minister's residence in belfast street in jerusalem they were carrying torches and they saw trash cans a life and also 2 objects the police and showing that it was an event that was made to coincide with the storming of the best still in farms and it took the police several hours to bring the situation under control now the protesters consider themselves part of what is called the black flag protest movement and they goal is to see the overthrow of the fine minister benjamin netanyahu they are against his continued government many of those who were out in the streets of people who have been suffering the effects of public 90 minute bluff their jobs many are out of work but they say it's not only the pandemic itself that the prime minister is not got a grip on the same speed they want to see he's gone from power they offer it up with
his corruption look at what some of them have to say here's a bit later there's a good chance that the people will realize that there is a leader dragging us to a dangerous place this is why i'm here and i hope that in the coming demonstrations all others will join the protests. all groups must unite every day not just once a week to protest and in the end she will go home. for 3 years i was in the street to get a partnership. education we had a labor a minister look like i did i put mr jackson thank you. at one point the peace for having to physically move people from the gate of the prime minister's residence in basis from the people for dismissing the protesters issued a statement in which they said that the prime ministership at the sponsor please and they called for him to do so by and by resigning they also say that the current
coalition is do nothing to improve the lives of ordinary israelis least of all during the time of covered 19. the blocked lives motor movement has turned its sights on london's biggest and oldest banks they're being urged by the group to pay reparations for historical ties to the slave trade but banks representative say they are not proud of their colonial past but want to change what's going on artie's shoddy at bristol she has more. since the death of george floyd back in may the backlog of movement has swept across the road. not just rallying against police brutality or institutional racism but challenging symbols of racism to. here in britain the campaign has expanded from toppling statues of slave traders to
exposing old banks accused of profiteering from the slave trade in fact some even argue that london's entire financial district was built on the back of slavery on colonial oppression pos directors of high street banking giants including lloyds and even barclays and even the bank of england fortunes from the traits. of london as we know it would. treat london firms played a crucial role in financing trade with. that includes funding the transatlantic passage of african captives in appalling conditions to be sold to slaves and it's not just companies under the microscope that comes as 10 to 20 percent of britain's wealthiest people could be identified as having significant historical links to slavery the backlog is months away from the mirror up to those institutions forcing them to confront the past ties to imperialism while many have apologized is it enough. apologies are not enough apologies
a stage of an effort that says we knowledge the harm we have caused and we are prepared to enter phase 2 which is a discussion and negotiations about how to repair the suffering that continues to be the legacy of slavery in the caribbean today the amount the british government power to pay off slave owners who were deemed to have property. only repaid in full in 2015 in fact it's the most an equivalent of $17000000000.00 pounds i mean this wasn't a tax is contributed to the abolition of slavery but is that something to be trumpeted is this really something to be regarded with a collective pride and surely it's now the time for countries and descendants of slaves to see the same kind of compensation with banks coughing up the money they have to pay back the money because the money's not going in the right so this is some excuse. to give back this money for them to contribute back to what they took. happened in the past.
be a good idea for. people but if it's still continue to benefit those mistakes it was quite up into 2015 so that means all my working life i've been paying name what they did to my insistence so as a person finally coming to terms with the crimes of colonialism or is this just a way for corporations to brush that under the carpet while the black eyes matter movement has shown is that britain's to choose to its imperial posture is at best conflict. meanwhile the city of british still also in england has woken up to a new monument it depicts a block lives mother activist and stands in place of a colonial slave statue. i . the sculpture of edward colston was thrown into bristol harbor during
a block lives motor protest in early june and was later polled out of the water by the authorities the plinth study mt artist mark quinn put off his new work on wednesday it depicts a british woman called jen reed making a block power salute for the creation of a statue read posed for the artist in his london studio here so she reacted to the piece came but obviously on the last night of protest i stood and my husband had taken a picture of me. i sit down on social media. went viral i think it's a great day to restore i think it's a great day to watch out of the mirror of bristol has just issued a statement saying the city council did not want to approve the new statue he added a history commission has been established to decide what will happen to the plane it remains unclear how long the statue of jan reid will remain in place but some
think it should stay. but i just know that people if they still have the highest need to stay strong they and to say i'm faced with this label in just kind of state this is all for the. good symbol to show. what you guys much is really going to do and that it should still be in good conscience it continues that feeling questo that we were still chased to meet the statue to feel good to be cheated the feeling suppressed you have to keep my speech will you stay there forever. let's go live now to the u.k. un count friend blakelock founder of the braggs it's party catherine welcome to the program as we just heard there there are some people quite enthusiastic about this new study of a bloc lives matter activists replacing edward cost and although plenty of criticism online and otherwise as well your thoughts. it's an antidote
i think the fact that they didn't apply for planning commission and they put force fit to put it up in the middle of the night shows you actually what this movement is about this movement is not about the people in fact if we look at talib tarion movements in the past whether it was starlin or hitler from the left all the right they always used the word our people. and it it isn't about the people restore the people up if they really wanted to they could apply to have planning permission to put this out they didn't and i would suspect that the council will not to remove it and they won't to remove it because they're fearful of more rule and parlance and this is the exact playbook for how marxism and totalitarian states start the question i suppose is what kind of
president does it actually know because mary marvin reset the statute did not permission to be installed so technically what occurred is illegal as you've been going through. it sets it sets a precedent for more rule it sets a president that that a few people can decide that democracy does not matter anymore clearly every colston is a divisive figure particular in bristol despite many achievements she was also a slave trader so maybe it was time for a statue in celebration of him to be taken down. i would accept this you could have had to own it so you could have had a referendum of the people up restore when you could have decided what it what you wanted to do about it but full that's a very different decision from a mole deciding of which
a few organized decides to take that statue down and this is exactly the play that has been repeated numerous times in many countries including in germany when you started to have moped rule and democracy doesn't matter anymore . black lives for the movement they're calling you may have just heard the earlier story catherine on london's oldest financial institutions the pay reparations to the descendants of slaves as a former bank yourself what's your if you should they pay up. well we're talking about something that was 18290 years ago what perhaps we would like to focus a little bit more clearly on what is actually happening in libya and mauritania at the moment where real slavery exists there are tapes on record of
slaves being sold in libyans in libya for $400.00 if you go into a house in mauritania which i have you will see small house children and boys who are indentured labor this happens in chad it also happens in some asian countries and this is current day and if people want to do something that they should be doing something about that which is a real evil and it is not by the way perpetrated by white people that is and i think that we could also look at this you know what happened in the slave trade that more slave y.r.'s black lives matter actually concentrating on that especially in africa it's a very good question and why are they not concentrated on the on the the labor that was going on in leicester well the reason they don't concentrate on that is that doesn't fit their power agenda i mean this is it's very clear what black lives
matter and in fact you've got a splits within the black community i was talking on friday to some black people who were interested in erecting statues of india mean i'm a girl however they don't like the. black lives mattson movement because they were fundamentally black males and they didn't act from the caribbean region and they did not like the. patriotic. agenda which is bloodless not it was founded by 2 lesbians in months is like we have to leave our catherine appreciate your time and your thoughts on both those issues this hour catherine blakelock co-founder of the brakes a party. so far this year a surge in gun violence in new york has led to more than 100 fatalities and left a further 600 people injured that's almost double the number in the same period from last year children teens and those in their early twenty's are among the victims of the spike kill up in spain looking at the alarming picture which is

the data speaks for itself by one crime is spiking in chicago milwaukee los angeles and new york city recently here in new york a one year old infant was struck by a stray bullet during a family barbecue they've just brought me down and then when the doctors came out and told me to do this. but i. was also. now the rise in crime comes amid a debate all across us society about the role of the police now police unions are blaming the spike in crime on unemployment the lockdown as well as. the fallout of george floyd's killing and the recent police brutality protests this was a perfect storm we had a series of events that many of us probably never experienced in our time other voices are saying that it's economic hard times and lack of opportunities and hunger that is driving this recent spike in violent crime maybe this has to do with
the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent and so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don't have money so you know maybe have to they're put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some grad or go hungry at night with violent crime on the rise authorities are scrambling to try and find a solution meanwhile an end to the recent killings and violence on the streets doesn't seem to be anywhere near in sight caleb martin artsy new york. it is a puck to the rafters going underground ahead in moments with option team then join me after that for all your latest midweek news headlines from moscow this is our to international.
