a medical miracle it will save millions of lives and the pandemic once and for all . of the world this is our team international my names you know neil and you're welcome to the program. the french capital is in the grip 'd of renewed on wrist over a security police used water cannon and tear gas the situation spied a really odd of control. it is part of a wave of public anger over government plans to protect police officers by keeping them extra powers boosting surveillance to name a few issues. she's been covering the protests throughout the day let's take a look. well we've had huge tension same in paris in the last hour where we have
1:02 pm
seen a number of what i would describe as smashing grabs by the police it's obviously much more organized not what you'll have members of the security forces going. crowds and crapping out individuals that they think of causing trouble or perhaps likely to cause trouble we saw one month being dragged from the crowd by the opus is a buffalo tensions with a portals except a whooping from the police officers who were so hard to see a gas already deployed a fact a woman court had to guess was being used to rescue him from error so sprains asked the protesters who so many people are trying to get away from that and suffering the impacts of sea gas.
1:03 pm
well 7 i just want to give you a sense of how the think this crowd is because cisco me as we're getting closer to the end of this protest the march to the public we understand really how many people from out there are thousands and thousands at trying to get a camera to see to look up the street which is completely fast 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. the police seem to be used to huge a restraint a we haven't seen the clouds of tear gas that we've seen in previous protests but
1:04 pm
we did see the water cannon used to try and crew people down millions of people came up to the streets of paris today there were other demonstrations across the country. as well all against the global security lord our people are unhappy with article 24 specifically this was the criminalized individuals who published images of the police if there was intent to harm that provoked huge theory here in prague as a result parliamentarians are going to rewrite their specific rules but people are angry again today not just about not just about the global security law but also a new law that was approved by the french capital it here in the week that is the law that was originally named the separatism no it's now the promoting republican values lou and this also contains an article which is very very similar to that controversial article 24 that is that it would become
1:05 pm
a criminal act to post images of somebody online if they didn't fight and if there was intent to home so take out the word police and it's essentially the same act now the police are also unhappy they food put that controversial article 20 food beer measure to protect them from the types of threats that they face on a daily basis and as a result of that their police union wanted actually for this measure to be strengthened even further so they're unhappy that this is being rewritten and the police are also unhappy about some of the comments made by president michael in the last week he said in an interview that the police are controlling more people who are known why than white and the police of essentially taken as to say that the president is suggested that they racist that's not exactly what he said what he
1:06 pm
said he was going to introduce this platform in january where people would be able to log complaints about discrimination from the police but does coolest huge anger amongst rank and file office. so much so that one union cool for people to stop controlling or could their members to stop controlling members of the public and also there was a protest on friday night where police officers came out to show their unease with the comments of the president doesn't listen to what some of them not to say give me time to clean up what the problem is that the police lock resources and personnel they lock many things and when they ask for help no one is listening on the other side with and criticize the police which i think is like a step in the back in the parks because forgot 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 gays no racial control that in the us it will be
1:07 pm
what. this is a lot. of free to. leave. you would lose all. their over. all the lawsuits right girlhood for example. that they are. served a. letter another headline story said a renewed fighting has been reported in the disputed nagorno-karabakh region one month into a ceasefire local armenian forces have accused the us or by john of opening fire on their military post artie's have has more. russian peacekeepers who are there they have already confirmed that the cease fire has indeed been broken on friday and at the moment russian peak peacekeepers are demanding that the sides stick to the truce so that no more people would die but speaking of this latest incident will
1:08 pm
according to our media and make our a block defense ministry well they claim they are but john carried out attacks on villages near god drouet which is in the car bombs but not controlled by there by john and apparently 3 people were wounded on december 11th at 8 40 pm the enemy attempted to attack our southern military positions as a result 3 reservists received gunshot wounds varying degrees of severity their lives are not in danger. by john of all they have also issued a statement and they claim that their forces are indeed observing this cease fire which was brokered just last month and indeed it was armenia who made some provocative actions and somehow violated the truce some words about my car back it is of course internationally recognized as by john but it is mainly.
1:09 pm
by ethnic armenians and it's been a source of major tensions in the last few decades and the latest of course a very bloody flare up happened in september and lasted for over a month thousands of soldiers died in those are by john in armenia nagorno-karabakh as well and find the ended around a member that's and when the sides agree to a ceasefire which was brokered by a russian i so. the decision has been taken as a result of analysis of the military situation and brains to lease and most of people who have been most familiar with the military situation. for my part i would like to see that i'm very. we've sealed the deal to subtly years long conflict between armenia and azerbaijan computed the occupation. by john they saw the results of this brief but very bloody conflict and the ensuing
1:10 pm
ceasefire as somewhat of somewhat it's actually a victory and they even held the victory day parade and speaking of the place where they parade the president off. the guard he also arrived and when he came over during the parade the entire city of baquba was dressed and. and there by john flags now speaking about the other side of this cease fire. at the moment many ethnic armenian refugees are returning to board a car which is not on their control they're trying to rebuild their lives and meanwhile people in the neighboring armenia are very i'm happy many feel very betrayed they're stepping on to the streets and the whole country is now in the gulf in protest and their demand is for the prime minister nicole to resign as soon as possible and many are blaming him for what had happened now we'll see what happens the next you know
1:11 pm
a cease fire in that region is very shaky at this one's been sacked for over a month already hopefully it will stick. let's stay on the story a little longer because i'm hoping to corral shamu a lawyer specializing in the middle east joins us live on the program good to see you for no crush it appears to be a fairly minor skirmish no one was killed but how dangerous is it for the cease fire overall are we likely to see the truce breaking down and do you think. thanks for having me on the u.s. the ceasefire is due friday and you can see it's been only a month and i mean and as it goes on how so infuses failure and it has always been . this time around long are we still. that this. peace agreement because usually both parties so it's the other party who. you met in order to have reason to lunch. at this moment we don't know what the what the truth
1:12 pm
is but there what we not this is a very fragile peace and it has to be. controlled by the russian the recent accusations are coming from are many and forces as you say russian peacekeepers have confirmed there was an incident but azerbaijan of her fusing to confirm or deny it at this stage and i know exactly what you're saying it's very sketchy the details but how does it look to you the situation. as i said this is religion is the interest and what the situation is more likely as a bridge and has an edge other amenia as it may journeys back military by turkey and israel and it has also been a good relation with russia armenia has also an excellent relationship with russia so this situation is frigid i and i feel as if they don't want to do that it's our it's the dominant position now and wants to reclaim our to occupy and they care
1:13 pm
about and see it as invasion in and where to get. people that are populated in the carrier it comes just around the day after azerbaijan was celebrating the ceasefire as a victory there is a huge relief military parade $3000.00 troops dozens of military vehicles in the capital by a current node give them major territorial gains this victory of sorts so what possible incentive could they have to disrupt things in our. as i said it's because they have they have this military an advantage now because they have and they have they also have syrians 5 percent by 2 to fight to fight on the side of the as a major need and they be gaining a lot of land within the last the last war and they want to. get more to gain more land and in order to be able to explore some of what the majority of iranians
1:14 pm
as they can get there say the your hat russia which he's there and he's trying to control russia this think a lot of money actually now in armenia and they tried to bring back all the. armenian population back in kerala because they want to do one they want to keep. at the same level and they want to have the advantage and the advantage and the end of it was not. the other one we can just touch briefly on the other side of things cross they are many and government has been under intense pressure since the cease fire was signed with constant protests in your of armenian the see the deal simply as a defeat do you think there are some in armenia who would want the truce to fail. minions i mean there is and there are many in armenia and even i mean the war here in france and in europe you have all the iranians who see this war and the world it
1:15 pm
was a people and a deal that has been made that has been broken by russia as a real defeat so what they want. to get the majority of countries to back them in order to gain some kind of victory but it cannot happen because other vision is very strong now they are backed by the by and by he's well and as a religion and it's within azerbaijan and it's surrounded by their wage and land so there's a belgian government wants to take this land and what's to reclaim it for themselves thanks for your time. ok chris thanks very much for coming in the program sharing your views crushed a lawyer specializing in the middle east and. the u.s. food and drug agency has approved the follows or a bio vaccine for emergency use it comes amid reports that the white house chief of
1:16 pm
staff pressured the watchdog's commissioner into giving the green light to the vaccine under threat of losing his job donald trump was quick to praise. 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 end a pandemic once and for all. the f.d.a. earlier a field total of 6 volunteers died during the fires or biotech co but job trials which involve $44000.00 people over the regulator assured the public felt there was nothing to worry about 4 of the deceased being given a placebo and the remaining 2 deaths were within statistical expectations while across the atlantic british authorities are playing it safe advising people with severe allergies knelt to take the pfizer biotech scene well it is a tragic picture in the u.s.
1:17 pm
right now more american lives have been lost the covert than the number that died fighting in world war 2 close to 300000 people have succumbed to the fires incoming president joe biden is pledging to get the nation to moscow for 3 months once he takes over in january. but 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 start with my signing a new order on day one to require mass where i cannot do the law like try to abilities interstate travel on planes trains and busses in most states in the us have a ready made. compulsory in public places really the compliance has been patchy though with several police departments openly saying that cannot enforce the rule emergency care especially the steven one mental illness there is a deep cultural mistrust of covert restrictions across the u.s.
1:18 pm
. people are kind of confused about what exactly do. to protect themselves and 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 falling 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 the u.s. the u.k. on culliver already approved it coated vaccines but the european union is exercising caution with the head of its medicines agency saying safety must come 1st though the e.u. is seeking ways to encourage people to take cold jobs once they are approved brussels has suggested the idea of vaccination certificates for people who've been documented for block wide mutual recognition of coronavirus test results it's part
1:19 pm
of possible measures to lift restrictions on restore cross border trouble right now the european union is working full speed to review of the safety of vaccines sent to make them available. we have the opportunity to reach an agreement on how to proceed with covert 19 vaccines and establish a common system for the validity of tests the opponents of vaccination certificates have for months warning such documents could end up becoming a big trued people are required to use them to travel earlier i put some of the more divisive points around the issue to a puddle of guest. 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
1:20 pm
compulsory go green with the 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 3 don't accept or 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 pick who profession troubling outlooks you eat certain they're very concerned return to reach this land she has come out there who already. know this is nothing against country vaccines are open but this it's really really hurting us. not put the european union has a. car 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
1:21 pm
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 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 of our soup who claims such crazy ideas all the time in the
1:22 pm
coming months and years we will know about the long term validity of the vaccine and not the certification and maybe we'll need to do it again and maybe there will be a 2nd version and all and that will improve the years but we need to save the economy now of germany were they dealing covert infection rate has been steadily climbing since october that's led to a debate over whether to poll the plug on traditional christmas events in a bid to keep people from catching and spreading the disease europe correspondent 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 the still on sale but the restrictions on selling out cold will harm my business we will leave lots of income
1:23 pm
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 bars and restaurants of being forced to close on the germany's lockdown lights mulled wine in the stalls have become a place to congregate prompting some politicians to warn that they may be leading to the spread of covert 19 across the country. one 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 to meet a 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
1:24 pm
16th century with this year's chris kindle christ child opening the advent season from a local t.v. studio. 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. lock down restrictions that were brought in back 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 drink this nice mint as hard as a ts and i know how much care has gone into setting up the mood wine and waffles tat it's not compatible with for it to be a greet only take food away and it is home and really saw it from the bottom of my
1:25 pm
heart but if the price we pay is $590.00 deaths a day and that in my view is not acceptable. 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 stalls being no it's not very christmassy it's like to try to find a balance between not being scarce and. trying to have a good time maybe i think it's not good they do open at the same time is a little bit sad because it's christmas and they're very won't be too bad 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 on blue merkel's address to the bundestag that the chancellor wants to see things go further sacrificing christmas spirit in the name of safety feature
1:26 pm
all over r.t. . let's move from germany to england where the city of birmingham has been branded a walk will because of the names given to 6 new streets include diversity grew a quality road and humility to both the names were suggested by a member of the public as part of a birmingham city council contest with the winner chosen by a panel of judges ridicule and i can say is a virtue signalling soon for. these new street names are completely vacuous was 0 connection to the people history or culture of birmingham another labor initiative the politicize ation of our landscape continues the art a meaningless banality of these new names speaks volumes about the new hollow normal anyway how about cross close compliance crescent woke wash way i'm calling it now someone's going to put a d at the end of humanity close or the radio host and columnist john gaunt
1:27 pm
birmingham should have chosen names that reflect the city's in chief mince instead this is political correctness gone mad this is snowflakes having a field day how ridiculous to name the streets in these clothes is in this way it's virtue signaling it i'm sure it's not in shoes with most birmingham people it doesn't reflect what birmingham is what birmingham's becoming birmingham is a modern 3 or sting city but we could talk about the achievements of birmingham and birmingham people there's luck and loads of people are not necessarily people but organization bands groups great achievements they couldn't name this after but no they want to slug up the demo do and they're politically correct it's an absolute joke and i'm sure the brummie jordan every working class birmingham people will be
