11:02 am
we can now bring in live our to charlotte timothy who's out one of the demonstrations and paris charlus tell us what's going on there. thank you well i just want to give you a sense oh how i think this crowd is because it's very me as we're getting closer to the end of this protest the march to the public so we understand really how many people come out there are thousands and thousands of trying to get a camera to be to look up the street which is completely packed and then if it's possible to turn the camera around you'll see how many people are still coming and then the lights over the police behind this is how strongly people feel against these rules that are going through at the current a french system also be proposed by the french government they won't the probably
11:03 am
over that thing it tension and violence in this great task of violence from the protesters throwing bottles towards the police the police responding with tear gas as sometimes spraying people directly in the face with aerosols there is a massive security presence here in paris today to try and keep this under control but as i said for the beginning there was a multiplier lence it does feel as if the security forces have been able to keep some semblance of control over this protest at least in the last half hour. but as well as those individuals who've been detained you said several dozen have also been a number of people in egypt as well we sort these 2 people with head injuries other people who were getting attention from medics say in the process just give you a sense of how rough it is being now this protest has been called against chile
11:04 am
things to know was that a currently being put forward by the french government the 1st one is the global security no specific people are unhappy with article 24 this article would have criminalized the idea of publishing images of the police had that been intended to comb the police however following the backlash following the protests the government has said it will look at rewriting that particular law but at the same time it's introduced this 2nd load this 2nd rule that is still being hold as a separate issue no it's over the new name is promoting republican valley's and it contains an article which has a very similar remit to that controversial article told you to the people hugely unhappy with that and not some of the reason that it came out today now the police say that these articles are designed to keep them safe and in fact.
11:05 am
think things need to go even further arms they're unhappy with the government so specifically president macaroon. that's because a week ago he gave an interview in which she said one line which is you rated the place and that was that they were more controls carried out on normal white individuals in front of them they were open white individuals and he talked about setting up a platform in january will people be able to lodge complaints about discrimination by the police does he say to the police unions some of them with cool tool controls to be stopped by that you need members and it taking to the streets themselves to protest because they now are saying that they think president my corn is cooling the racist it's up to listen to what the police who are protesting on friday evening had to say. limit and secure our borders the problem is that the police lock resources and personnel they lock many things and when they ask for help no
11:06 am
one is listening on the other side with and criticize the police which i think is like a step in the back from the barracks because you got to emanuel mccrone ends up telling the media that the police are racist i can guarantee my colleagues are not racist today if they demonstrate and if they continue to demonstrate it is to show you that they are not racist and no there is no racial control in the hearings it will be. well the government is overseas pushing ahead with these laws rewriting parts of them but the reality is as you can see from the crowd say or empower us people are still furious about this but this is not the only protests taking place in france there are dozens of others but as you said earlier that has already been more violent than this protest not as high to violence as we saw week ago but it's still very early in the day and i can tell you the people here are very very angry
11:07 am
. are to charlotte even if he is staying across the latest on the demonstrations in paris for us thank you for. the u.s. food and drug. agency has approved the fines or biotech coated vaccine for emergency use after reports that the white house chief of staff pressured the watch dogs commissioner into giving the green light under pain of losing his job was quick to praise the development today our nation has achieved a medical miracle we have delivered a safe and effective vaccine in just 9 months this is one of the greatest scientific accomplishments in history it will save millions of lives and soon in the pandemic once and for all. in the u.k. authorities are advising those with severe allergies not to get the pfizer biotech coated jab but warning comes shortly after the country began its mass rollout of the vaccine all stateside the food and drug administration has revealed that a total of 6 volunteers died during the trials which involved $44000.00 people
11:08 am
about the regulator assure the public there was nothing to worry about that 4 of those people had received a placebo and the remaining 2 deaths were well within statistical expectations meanwhile more american lives have been lost to ko bed than the number that died fighting in world war 2 almost 300000 houses come to the virus and reports. we've got 15000000 cases of covert 19 in the united states we've got hospitals overwhelmed 107000 people are in the hospital at this moment doctors say these numbers are going to keep getting worse on wednesday there were more deaths from covert 19 on one day than there were on september 11th these are pretty big numbers that people are looking on at the situation then and just appalled at how massively coded 1000 has expanded throughout the united states how much the pandemic seems to be completely out of control now joe biden is promising that when he takes office
11:09 am
he will tackle this issue for his 1st 100 days in office he's talking about a mask a mandate and i'm absolutely convinced that in 100 days we can change the course of the disease and change life in america for the better i'm going to ask for a mask in place everyone for the 1st 100 days of my administration to wear a mask that will star with my sign in order on day one to require mask where i cannot be the law there is some concern about how a mask mandate would be enforced around the country where there are states and localities that have mandated masks be worn we've seen kind of rebellion among sheriffs and local police officers who are refusing to enforce it for example in california this local sheriff referred to a mask a mandate as dictatorial he is expecting us to arrest anyone violating these orders cite them and take their money close their businesses make them stay in their homes
11:10 am
and take away their civil liberties or he will punish all of us the riverside county sheriff's department will not be blackmailed bullied or used as muscle against riverside county residents in the enforcement of the governor's orders unemployment numbers in the united states are actually the highest they've been since mid september we had a situation where this we. 853000 people lost their jobs bringing the total number of unemployment to 10700000 according to the us department of labor now despite this there is a deadlock in congress they're fighting over the stimulus package others not a clear agreement between the 2 major parties about how relief should be provided and of course we've got the 2 major parties blaming each other how many more businesses have to shut or how many more dreams have to be shattered. how many more people have to be laid off. before to nancy pelosi and the democrats will act
11:11 am
we need more turned them to take more time but we have to have a bill and we cannot go home without it things are pretty out of control the rival parties are blaming each other joe biden is promising that he will turn things around however there's a strong amount of opposition to the measures he's already proposing even before he takes office quite a problematic and serious situation here in the united states people are kind of confused about what exactly to do. to protect themselves you know also we think many americans don't like to be told what to do so they are restrictions and they continue to fight the restrictions and by their doctor some of the states are stretched you know beyond capacity following every holiday there's it's a small surge and now it's a pretty big surge after thanksgiving there's still a significant portion of our population that doesn't get what's happening. well the
11:12 am
u.s. u.k. and canada have already approved coded vaccines the european union is exercising caution with the head of its medicines agency saying that safety must come 1st although the e.u. is seeking ways to encourage people to get the job once they're approved it suggested the idea of vaccinations or tickets for people who've been inoculated and for a block wide mutual recognition of coronavirus test results it's all part of possible measures to lift restrictions and restore cross border travel right now the european union is working full speed to review of the safety of vaccines and make them available. we have the opportunity to reach an agreement on how to proceed with covies 19 vaccines and establish a common system for the validity of tests but opponents of vaccination certificates are concerned that they could end up becoming de facto obligatory with people required to use them for travel my colleague in an o'neill gauge opinions on the issue with
11:13 am
a panel of guests. i'm nervous about the idea of having these travel as certificates or these certificates that say you've had the coronavirus vaccine because what that means is that actually will then end up being a coronavirus passport so i think the thing is to encourage rather to rather than to make sure people are automatically told they have to have it it should not be compulsory go green with the as a gentleman there no problem but for air travel. it should be made compulsory by the airlines to make sure that the people on the plane are sent to blah blah about really dumb eccentric that's exactly what the problems we got with this. group who are going. to pull information about and so i think there will be more people who are going to cooper question troubling outlooks you eat certain. routes this flight she has come out with who. are right now because it's nothing against covering
11:14 am
about pregnancy but this it's really really not going to be difficult but put the european union has a. isn't concerned the one thing i would say to the european union is if you stop having so much bureaucracy and let those countries decide for themselves they would have vaccines by now i think that's an incredibly dangerous thing to say this is been in the making for 20 years we've had a rolling review is this is going on this vaccine is safe the m h r 8 would not license this vaccine if they did not believe it was safe and the problem is when you start to spread those sorts of rumors that's why people won't be vaccinated and the more you tell them you have to have a vaccine and people believe that there is some sort of miletus thing going on then people will not take up that vaccination and therefore we undo all the good work that's been done to date certain conspiracy theories and go or bordering on factual know looking as if they're going to be happening and this is just going to fuel
11:15 am
those more extreme conspiracy theories that one of the bill gates trying to use vaccines that plant microchips in people this is simply going to reinforce their fears isn't it yes i somehow i believe absolutely. i'm sorry. you shouldn't believe these people or assume who claims such crazy ideas all the time in the coming months and years we will know about the long term solidity of that sank seem enough to such occasion and maybe we'll need to do it again maybe there will be a 2nd version at all and that will improve the years but we need to save the economy now. 6 people were injured after being struck by a car at a black lives matter protest in new york on friday and warning some viewers may find the following images upsetting. god. god.
11:16 am
was was the. police have confirmed that the injuries appear to be non a life threatening rally was held in solidarity with people jailed by immigration officers the driver of the car that plowed into the crowd was arrested witnesses told us what they saw. people got hit our people got hit by cars for us were doing a peaceful protest we had those biker cops behind us the entire day the by cops the bikers they were behind us the entire time they could have prevented that if they did their job or not you know where peacefully watching i turn around i see a car coming i said wait take a look. but i think that there's an easy way out the way that i stayed in the car started just getting. like a smack in. the daily coded infection in germany has been steadily climbing
11:17 am
a sense october i thought to a debate over whether to pull the plug on traditional christmas events in a bid to keep people safe peter all of our reports from berlin. usually where i'm talking to you from would be the scene of one of the busiest christmas markets it's not to be this year there's no room at the inn for the christmas market due to the global pandemic but one thing that's a memory of christmas past is the smells of mold wine that still on sale at the restrictions on selling alcohol will harm my business we will leave the lots of income as things stand we can stay here until the 20th december maybe we'll be allowed to open up again after the lockdown is over the sale of a cup of festive cheer is causing a divide in the country though while paws and restaurants of being forced to close on the germany's locked down lights mulled wine in the stalls have become a place to congregate prompting some politicians to warn that they may be leading
11:18 am
to the spread of covert 19 across the country the old wine stands subvert our contact restrictions i don't understand why the city of cologne allows this in the end this will lead to new infections and that's it will be time for that later when we are vaccinated the owners of these stalls disagree though. i think we should do everything we can to stop the spread of this virus we wear masks and observe the timi to distance rule and disinfect our hands even germany's most famous christmas market in nuremberg is closed they've had to make changes to traditions going back to the 16th century with this year's chris kindle christ child opening the advent season from a local t.v. studio the c.s.i. this year everything is different the coronavirus crisis is preventing us from doing many things in the run up to christmas such as advent celebrations and gathering at the christmas market. lockdown restrictions that were brought in back
11:19 am
in november haven't had the desired effect in getting the number of cases of covert 90 down that means that the federal. government here in berlin and the leaders of germany 16 states are going to have to thrash out a new set of restrictions even if that means putting christmas spirit on hold it's fought rigged this needs met as hard as a ts and i know how much care has gone into setting up the mood one and waffles tad's it's not compatible we want to be a greet only take food away and it is home and really saw it from the bottom of my heart but if the price we pay is $590.00 deaths a day that is not acceptable but. obviously the public don't want to cancel christmas but i spoke to people here and asked them what they thought about these mulled wine store being open it's not very christmassy like to try to find
11:20 am
a balance between not being scarce and. trying to have a good time maybe i think it says not to good they do open at the same time is a little bit sad because it's christmas and they're very won't be together and enjoy this time. it is a bit sad that there's not so much to do at this time but i think we need to be cautious and i suppose those few places with mulled wine should remain open it's clear from onboard merkel's address to the bundestag that the chancellor wants to see things go further sacrificing christmas spirit in the name of safety feature all over r.t. . or the lab report on the latest coming out of the disputed nagorno-karabakh region after the short break stay with us.

11:28 am
virtue signaling it's on sure it's not in june with most birmingham people it doesn't reflect what birmingham is well birmingham's becoming birmingham is a more sort of sting city but we could talk about the achievements of birmingham birmingham people this look and loads of people not necessarily people but organization bands groups great achievements they could name this after but no they want to slug the deluded and the politically correct it's an absolute joke and i'm sure the brahma george noory working class birmingham people will be laughing at this as much as everybody else. lastly we bring you some world news in brief clashes erupted in albania for a 3rd day in a row after a man was shot dead by officers and forcing a coronavirus. protesters through flares and firecrackers at police who responded
