8:02 am
where it's just turned 3 pm welcome to the program. for years in germany a vulnerable young boys have been placed. in the foster care of pedophile men a damning study by health time university also says the authorities either ignored evidence of abuse or complicit in letting it continue cases are as recent as 2003 and they stem back to the 1970 s. it all over has been speaking with some of the victims who came forward decades of abuse carried out by those put in a position to protect the most vulnerable in society for 30 years starting in the 1970 s. berlin authorities placed children in the care of a convicted paedophile named for its age i spoke to 2 of his victims to protect their right to anonymity they'll be named only spin and marco. our daily lives were dominated by instructions we were shielded from the outside world
8:03 am
like a sect most of the time we faced violence if we wanted to go out or meet someone else we were intimidated and told these people were bad that we should have nothing to do with them if we wanted to go anyway we were forbidden every day it was mental and physical mistreatment and we're only realizing this now we were forced to do things we wouldn't normally do because we were threatened that was our life the worse the treatment the more you felt this person was important to you every day with this man was a fight for survival and a fight to preserve yourself what makes this more troubling is that the lives of these men as well as others were essentially being toyed with as part of an experiment. rated psychologist helmet even after his death in 2010 was regarded as they found. he was in effect a little more than a match maker putting neglected children into the care of predators. we learned
8:04 am
about this experiment when doctors called in 2017 my thought was this can't be true i was not a mere product of chance i was deliberately selected by the berlin branch of the s.p.d. party the ruling party at the time that hired a mercenary to destroy our lives in an experiment when we heard about it we felt. and what particularly bothers us is that the names of those responsible are missing but there must be a further investigation in my opinion this is one of the greatest crimes of the post-war era the fact that it was really an experiment is shameful and very humiliating it was tolerated for decades no one ever came along and asked how we were doing life with our foster father was going nobody ever came over to check. those responsible are still sitting in offices or enjoying their pensions they're trying to hide behind a statute limit. patients to torpedo another investigation is shameful that the
8:05 am
perpetrator the organization is hiding behind legal quibbles to avoid shedding light on it this criminal organization should not be behind the investigation the care system in germany has changed dramatically since scandalous time when it comes to who can act as a foster parent authors of a study into the can flourish experiment of told r.t. that there is no way his crimes were carried out without the welfare office being directly involved in germany of course to care is the responsibility of the u.s. welfare offices still children and adolescents who leave and forced to homes always grow up on just 8 observation the things that occur in foster homes we examined could not have happened without the knowledge of officials in the us welfare authorities there has never been this state investigation into the actions of templar and his experiment in senator's told us they are pushing for
8:06 am
a nationwide examination to look at the real scale of the abuse since we have nationwide connections further research going to be limited only to berlin the center for education youth and family has said that she wants to submit an application to the conference of ministers to deal with sexual violence and foster homes the victims of abuse say the knowledge of the girl in government it makes them accomplices in the crimes and in moscow of pushing for legal action today after having been failed by the authorities. the berlin senate is 100 percent involved the bird in senate initiated it and then tolerated it it's already been admitted verbal eep but not legally from the very beginning the only thing that mattered to them was how to keep the problem small then criminal charges were put forward we file charges in the senate kept in touch with us since then there's been no contact with the senate it's impossible to. build up such an organization on this scale without state help. we expect justice our lives have been destroyed we
8:07 am
are on able to work and we have become aware that we are just a pile of misery we were put in this situation by the government deliberately it was not an accident as we saw it until now it is a matter of course that the senate will make amends the senate has offered as $10000.00 euros in return for us taking no further action against it the names of those responsible and the consequences for these people are still missing as long as it stays like that things are not over this is a particularly her ruling story exploitation and failure to protect the states was expressly directed to protect. new york police officers and dirty vicious attack by a protester on wednesday while they were supervising a mostly peaceful march against gun crime they were assaulted when marchers met counter protesters on the brooklyn bridge the officers were making and arrests when
8:08 am
an unidentified man is seen running towards them and then beating them with a cane and why p.b.s. has 3 of its officers sustain injuries including a police chief who only last month showed his solidarity with other demonstrators by taking a knee. for a moment of their chief terrance monaghan of the new york city police department kneeled in solidarity with protesters a. retired philadelphia police captain ray lewis says he's worried that officers are now seen as the people's enemy. there are obviously much more concerned nowadays with being a child actually due to the actions of other officers because there is such a thing called the halo effect and that is now every officer is being asserted on a brutal and an enemy of the minority population the fact is these officers schwartz. unnecessarily what disappointed me with this
8:09 am
is none of the other protesters even pushed this trying way to come to the ground focused weapon you want to win over. empathy for your movement. do the right thing justice is for everybody the solution to violent protest is to confront the reason you have violent protests could front the economic despair you can confront the job like a job opportunity to confront the lack of education like people like these are so huge that go into these protests. and you statue briefly appeared on a plinth in the english port city of bristol where a few weeks ago the longstanding monument to a slave trader was thrown into the harbor. coast and was torn down during
8:10 am
a major anti-racism rally last month and later was retrieved by the authorities and taken away but here is what went up in its place on wednesday that's a statue of local campaigner jen reid recreating the moment she stood on the plane after that rally and raced her fist in the air and you're more than a few on likers after us put up and here's what some of them thought about it. i think you set up so that you fucked off to be good for the people of bristol is good for but. i don't think personally i think you should study this stuff she was a wreck too did he. i think it was a democracy you should be able to vote for what's but you. are right and those who disagree with the way that the polish the statue was taken down and try to change in the exact language. you individually like the piece what we've seen in bristol to see that the 1st that she was so you condone that started all of these things overruled people are happy the statue was gone you should have to defeat about it
8:11 am
just to put up there looking just push touch of the world won't you know. that new statue has since been taken down and put in a museum the city's mayor says there needs to be a democratic process for the people of bristol to decide the future of the planned parks a party co-founder catherine blakelock says people taking it upon themselves to install a statue sets a dangerous precedent. it's on to democrats to life think those thoughts that they didn't apply for planning commission and they. put it up in the middle of the night show you. this movement is about this movement isn't about that people still the people up if they really wanted to they could apply to have planning permission to put this up they didn't. try to do and that a few people can decide that democracy does not matter anymore.
8:12 am
they use top court has rejected a data sharing agreement that allows big tech firms to transfer european users information to the united states and after a privacy complaint was raised over far reaching u.s. surveillance it doesn't entirely mean an end to transatlantic data sharing though charlotta pinsky explains. well this deal between the e.u. and us over the transfer of the has been thrown out now by the e.u. has top court it's been a longstanding issue that was originally a case that was brought against facebook and this is because one privacy advocate was unhappy that u.s. law means that companies in the u.s. can hand over data to the n.s.a. to the f.b.i. even it's used by thousands of tech companies based in the u.s. already so match rams he has one its case is the e.u. will not change its fundamental rights to please the n.s.a.
8:13 am
the only way to overcome this clash is for the us to introduce solid privacy rights for all people this judgement is not because of a limit to data transfers but the consequence of u.s. surveillance laws and today this ruling by the european court of justice has been welcomed by did show rights advocates we have repeatedly highlighted legal and policy developments that called into question the validity of the arrangement including enhanced u.s. surveillance the childers regard for human rights globally best of all it was about a day to agreement called safe harbor following revelations made by whistleblower and former n.s.a. employee edward snowden over the scope of surveillance in the u.s. one austrian citizen bloc schrans now he took this case to court and he won as a result the original agreement called safe harbor was thrown out but then the e.u. and us came up with
8:14 am
a new agreement brooke placement of the commission has proposed to shield is basically say for once again it didn't change anything it's the same again we take it all basically so is it a win is this the end of the case will sadly not because there are already mechanisms in place other mechanisms that have been used between the e.u. in us for the transfer of this sort of data so it seems like a win today from actually other digital rights campaigners but it seems that there is still a long fight ahead. we spoke with privacy activist bill new who thinks it's unlikely any similar data sharing agreement well ever be implemented and that this is a big deal this is a massive rebuke for the u.s. surveillance activities on a scale that we've never seen before this is a thought bigger really potentially than say all that went before it because this is the 2nd time it's been struck down and i don't think there's any white back yet
8:15 am
to put another arrangement in place that would be similar in fact they tried that before brucey shield was very much just putting lipstick on a pig somebody once it's commonplace for almost all large communication in visit information service providers in the u.s. the likes of facebook amazon goal and others where they frequently find information over to the n.s.a. or the cia the f.b.i. and that's exactly what this ruling is seeking to prevent but when we're actually sharing information messaging applications all wrong facebook where we just communicating with friends and family here in europe is there really any need for that date set to leave the european jews go join america no there isn't. telecon in the 2nd half of the program a new chain sexual act rassmann claims emerges in russia leveled against
8:16 am

led. by. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or inmate in the shallowness. welcome back a young woman who fled britain to join i still has won an appeal to be allowed back into the u.k. to fight the decision to revoke her citizenship should be my bag and was 15 when she left london 5 years ago she is currently in syria and stateless after the home office stripped her british says and shipped last year across live now to london and our correspondent ali for the details it's been back and forth through the
8:18 am
courts and it's not over yet how do things stand right now. absolutely bag and has long been trying to get back to the united kingdom she is of course a girl who when she was 15 years of age traveled with some of her friends to syria in order to join i still now they went there they were known as the so-called brides of isis and she was eventually found in a refugee camp in $2819.00 after the defeat of isis by a combination of iraqi syrian security forces and she was found in that security in that refugee camp one of her babies a newborn baby died due to the harsh conditions there and while she was there she was stripped of her citizenship by the u.k. government who said that she represented security threat she has since been trying to appeal that decision and with that ruling today the judge in the court in london
8:19 am
saying that she has the right to return to the u.k. in order to make that appeal because doing so in syria from a refugee camp doesn't give her the opportunity to truly access justice fairness and justice must on the facts of this case outweighed the national security concerns so that belief to enter appeals should be allowed now the judge did also mention that if shamima bag did return to the u.k. then the director of public prosecutions and the c.p.s. and the other all thora he could arrest upon arrival he didn't rule that out but did say that she could return to the u.k. if she wished to make that pill now of course the home we've been hearing from the home office previously they have stripped of her citizenship and they have reacted to this ruling saying that they feel the ruling is a mistake. this is
8:20 am
a very disappointing decision by the court will now apply for permission to build this judgment and to states in fact spending any on very typical. now previously the job it was the home secretary when the decision was made to strip her of her citizenship was deemed by a number of civil liberties campaigners to set a dangerous precedent because it meant the government could take the passports away from anybody that they deemed they wanted to do so. at the time such a judge it was justifying his decision to do so on national security grounds. when we assess someone posts a real threat we will work to stop them from returning sometimes to do that i have to deprive people of their british nationality i continue to do so to keep this country safe. now pending of course the home office and the

a beta detection by exploiting technologies and loopholes along them to stay active for months now one technique was content masking by mixing pro i was so material in videos with genuine content from real news outlets like france 24 b.b.c. and a number of others some videos were edited to begin with content that on the face of it seemed innocuous or bland as the sympathizers also infiltrated common threads to share links to known jihadi sites and they coordinated raids on other facebook pages including the us military. the report says the accounts also gloated about being able to play the system researchers found almost $300.00 price all accounts managing to slip past facebook's moderators site says it has 0 tolerance for terrorist pop propaganda and has now removed all of those accounts we spoke with internet law expert here cohen who says it doesn't take much for harmful content to achieve its goal. only indoctrination is extremely dangerous there are people who
