12:07 pm
response you have chinese press coming out and saying that 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. to another headline stories the u.s. military is facing damning allegations of systemic sexual violence in its ranks there's greater scrutiny since the recent project killing of soldier openness a human a 20 year old vanished in late april her body was found 2 weeks ago in. complain to her family she had been sexually harassed while serving at fort hood in texas a fellow soldier suspected of killing vanessa with her committed suicide as law enforcement tried to arrest him prosecutors also charged another woman believed to

12:11 pm

12:18 pm
a politician from germany's an after party at martin good to see you what are the implications of this case if a number of officers did indeed have ties to anneal not secret so. yes if you look at that case that's just a surface we have in germany since the tech on the october festival in the seventy's so last century there have been tyson. for some thoughts the. what you called a circle strip you know i arrived haifa's a seminar in germany they were building right wing groups with. so-called really loyal to people who are in the scene who are led by the secret service and so the left right the people and the how to drive the instructions so that now we see the police chief who resides it's just like one sector for ice you know in the
12:19 pm
chest going you can put a call in and it supervised and you have to get to the structure of problems and you have a structural problem that in this state there is heart of the structures in the state and systematically rock with the right green and in the police there are some in the secret service and on the level of the ministries there are some as well who prefer to work with right wing to really aggressive. murder. a we have a saying in germany the so-called security forces lanai on the right i with that in mind martin the way you're talking it sounds as if they've almost burd their way and have dug their way into their police ranks far right extremists if that is the case what do you attribute it to why is this happening. oh except ending because since years systematically for example when we look in the area of
12:20 pm
police in the seventy's and the eighty's and ninety's there was a lot of critic who police men human as police men in the leading positions as well and the education of police was more it with a tendency to structure society and to keep society safe but. then there had been a turn around since the eighty's but it really meant to correct a small busy since 2000 that. the 'd education of police is more attention against the last week against my friends and no one or more in favor of society and no response what on the merits of this is what we're seeing no and inside the police there have been some police officers who resigned from their education or formed over because they didn't like to fit in a system where if you. for example criticize racist leading
12:21 pm
approach in their ease you get. very deep problems at all it's a structural problem inside the politics and inside the police and you have to handle it like this and so there has to be a change martin appreciate you coming on the program and sharing your thoughts martin daughter politician from germany's left party. thank you as well have a nice evening. the inner city of bristol has woken up to a new monument it depicts a black lives matter activist and stands in place of a colonial slave traders statue. i. was thrown into prison to harper during a black lives matter protest in early june and was later posed the water by the authorities no on wednesday artist mark quinn put up his new work on the empty
12:22 pm
plinth it depicts a british woman called jan read making a block power salute for the creation of a statue read posed for the artist in his london studio and she's pretty happy about it this is what she had to say. came but obviously on the last night of protest i stood and my husband had taken a picture of me. i sit down on the social media. bible i think it's a great day to restore i think it's a great day. the mare of bristol has issued a statement saying the city council did not approve the new statue he added that a history commission has been established to decide what will happen to the plant it remains unclear how long the statue of gen reed will remain in place some think it should stay. but i just love that people if they still have the highest need it's a strong way and to say i'm faced with this label in this kind of state this is all
12:23 pm
for the. good symbol to show. what that nice much is really i mean it should still be in good conscience it continues that feeling that we are still chase to meet the statue to feel to be cheated the feeling suppressed you have to take out my spirit will you stay there forever. but there's been plenty of negative reaction to the new stance you as well some people taking to twitter to express their thoughts saying it has to come down because the stance you feel is to reflect the diversity you know bristol the population others call the art installation a breach of plumbing law egotistical and a show of disrespect to the city breaks its party co-founder catherine black block told us a dangerous precedent is being said it's democrats i think the thought that they didn't apply for planning commission and they. put it up in the middle of
12:24 pm
the night shows. this movement is about this movement isn't about the people still 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 move it and they won't to move it because they have to full of more rule and bar limits it sets a precedent that a few people can decide that democracy does not matter anymore. in new york gradually re-emerges from lockdown the city is experiencing a dramatic increase in gun violence this past weekend alone according to its police department 50 people were shot 4 of them fatally the alarming trend is also being witnessed in other cities across the country kill up and reports. almost every day

12:27 pm
that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rats and so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don't have money so you know maybe have to 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 of the words 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 mop and artsy new york i thought is the news for now but i'm sticking around hope you will too because labelled the most fertile woman enough ruka ugandan madea has an astonishing 38 children she's not yet 40 her life story is just as eye opening it's told next don't go far.
