8:01 pm
from moscow thanks so much for joining us on our to international tonight on daniel hawkins swerve you are welcome to the program. paris has been engulfed in renewed unrest over a controversial security bill police used water cannon and tear gas as the situation spiraled out of control as when huge anger over plans to protect police officers by handling the extra powers and boosting surveillance with more from the french capital here's a shot at do with. well we've had huge pension savings paris in the last hour where we have seen a number of what i would describe this action grabs by the police it's obviously much more organized not that you'll have members over the security force is going to the crowds and dropping out into the jews that they think of causing trouble or perhaps likely to cause trouble you saw one man being dragged from the crowd by the officers. a buffalo tensions with apostles accept
8:02 pm
a whooping for the police officers who burst or had seen a gas already deployed a fact a woman point at 2 gas was being used directing from error so sprains acts the protests we saw many people trying to get away from that and suffering the impacts of sea gas. well 7 i just want to give you a sense of how big this crowd is because it's are you me as we're getting closer to the end of this protest the march to the public we understand really how many people have come out there are thousands and thousands are trying to get the camera
8:03 pm
to me 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. 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 we did see the water cannon used to try and crew people down there were other demonstrations across the country as well all against the global security lord our people were unhappy with article 24 specifically this would have criminalized individuals who published images of the police if there was intent to hold but that provoked. huge theory here in france and as
8:04 pm
a result parliamentarians are going to rewrite their specific laws but people are angry again today not just about that not just about the global security law but also a new law that was approved by the french captain it in the week there is the law that was originally named the separatism nor it's now the promoting republican values law and this also contains an article which is very very similar to that controversial article $24.00 that is that it would become a criminal act to post images of somebody online if they could be identified 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 thought that that controversial article 20 food beer measure to protect them from the types of threats that they face on a daily basis as
8:05 pm
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 mccollum in the last week he said in an interview that the police are controlling more people who are known white than white and the police of essentially taken not as to say that the president is suggested that they racist problem it unsecured our police 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 flip or explain the new mccrone ends up telling the media that the police a racist i can guarantee my colleagues are not racist because they are today if they demonstrate and if they continue to demonstrate it is to show you that they are not racist and no data. nuvi should control what he did in the us. this is it.
8:06 pm
really. because he was think you know he was. released last friday was pretty sad i'm going to sleep. renewed fighting has been reported in a disputed not going to cut about reason and one month into a ceasefire i mean his accusers about john of attacking its military positions are on course it 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 peake peacekeepers are demanding that this side stick to the truce so that no more people would die but speaking of this latest incident will according to our media and make our a block defense ministry well they claim they are but john carried out attacks on
8:07 pm
villages near god group 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 now some words about my car back it is of course an internationally recognized as are always are by john but it is mainly occupied by ethnic armenians and it's been a source of major tensions in the last few decades and the latest of course
8:08 pm
a very bloody flare up happened in. september and lasted for over a month clown thousands of soldiers died there by john in armenia nagorno-karabakh as well and find the ended around a member that's and when the sides agreed to a cease fire 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 scores of people who've been most familiar with the military situation. for my part i mean i just seen it done very. we've seen a good deal to subtly years long conflict between our media and. the occupation and has been joined. now by john they saw the results of this brief but very bloody conflict and the ensuing cease fire as somewhat of someone actually victory and they even held the picture the day parade in both cruel and speaking of
8:09 pm
that that's where they parade the president off. the guard he also arrives 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 the board. which is not controlled and trying to rebuild their lives and meanwhile people in the neighboring armenia are very unhappy many feel very betrayed they're stepping onto the streets and the whole country is now engulfed in protests 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 a cease fire in that region is very shaky at this one's been intact for over
8:10 pm
a month already hopefully it will stick a middle east specialist who believes moscow will have its way to save the cease fire. as abrasion has an edge. as it were a journey back. and by israel and. as it wants to pick it of its dominant position now and wants to reclaim. that care about and. as it were a journey for them get their say the your house rochelle which he's there and he's trying to control the russian 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 up and they want to have the advantage and the advantage and the edge of it was not one that we need in the other one this family run with. that this. because usually both parties say it's the other party.
8:11 pm
in order to have a reason to lunch in fact at this moment we don't know what the what the truth is but they're one of the not this is a vote for peace and it has to be. controlled by the russian. texas republicans are calling for action after the legal shallowness of the presidential election was struck down by the supreme court the local party chairman and the state should now think about cutting loose from washington. the supreme court in tossing the texas lawsuit has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violated so on election law perhaps law abiding states should band together and form a union of states that will abide by the constitution allen west isn't alone with that view earlier in the week a republican texas state said he wants to plan a referendum on whether there's a scene from the united states he said the federal government was out of control
8:12 pm
and didn't represent the values of texans this is a referendum for the people of texas to be able to make their voices heard people are fired up right now and she won that they have been left out for many many years tags it now without fail like since we have no country fox is now promoting tex it secession look for trump to become this pathetic new country's 1st president so long texas it was nice knowing you i love this idea old true trumpeters should move to texas is good wall and everything then he can be president of your country since he won't be here you can't even vote again like you want please all of you go to political commentary to try to make more believe the story highlights the growing political rift in the united states. texas talk about this for a very long time though it's sort of in the texas soul to see itself as going into
8:13 pm
you know the lone star state it's a it's a state slogan to threaten to leave and god bless them and they did good luck to them and god bless them as well but i'm not sure that we see that happening it does seem to be a sort of emotional response at this point however it does express how alienated feeling right now how washington is too big how a couple major cities way too much political control in the supreme court refused to your most people believe because different because the media declared the winner of this election not the electoral process but the media and the people of the media the corporate interests the control media announced the president and the supreme court many people believe simply said that they don't want to step in on this. u.s. food and drug agency has approved the prize a covert vaccine for emergency use this comes amid reports the white house chief of staff pressured the watch tokes commissioner into giving the green light to the job on the threat of losing his job but while the truck was quick to praise the approval left a representative voiced concerns today our nation has achieved
8:14 pm
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 agency is very concerned about vaccine hesitancy with the f.d.a. earlier revealed 6 volunteers died during the trials of the plies and shot which involved 44000 people however the regulators said 4 of the deceased had been given a placebo while the remaining 2 deaths were within statistical expectations meanwhile in the u.k. authorities are advising people with severe allergies not to take the new vaccine. well in the united states more lives have been lost the code of the number killing killed fighting in world war 2 close to 300000 people have succumbed to the virus incoming president joe biden is pledging to bring into law
8:15 pm
a nationwide scoring rule once he takes office but i'm absolutely convinced and 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 where madness it will start with my signing a new order on day one to require mass where i cannot do the law like federal buildings interstate travel on planes trains and busses in most states in the us i've already made of all square and compulsory in public places. has been patchy with several police that fall but enforce the rule of urgency cast pressure to steven waldman says there's a deep cultural mistrust of destructions across 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 try restrictions and they
8:16 pm
continue to fight the restrictions and by their doctor some of the states are stretched you know beyond capacity following every holiday there's a there'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. to the head of the program christmas without the trimmings some of germany's famous festive markets all. coated with infections. more offer a short break. so
8:17 pm
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront a shouldn't let it be an arms race is on spearing dramatic development the only really exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. to sit down and talk.
8:18 pm
welcome back to the program while the u.s. u.k. and kind of a have already approved vaccines the e.u. is expecting exercising caution rather saying safety must come 1st over the block seeking ways to encourage people to take over jobs once approved russell suggested vaccination certificates for e.u. wide mutual recognition of coronavirus test results is part of it. and allow more travel. right now the european union is working full speed to review the safety of vaccines and make them available to see do we have the opportunity to reach an agreement on how to proceed with cope with 19 vaccines and establish a common system for the validity of tests or critics are claiming vaccinations are difficult scored impact civil liberties or color you know neil put the issue up for debate. i'm nervous about the idea of having these travel as certificates or the certificates that say you've had the coronavirus faxing because what that means is
8:19 pm
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 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 be taking its toll and. i think there will be more people who are going to call professional traveling outlets you reach certain there are very concerned return to rush this client she has come out with who already. know this it's nothing against having vaccines are open but this it's really really helping us. put sir do your
8:20 pm
duty as a police. car is your concern 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 those more extreme conspiracy theories that one of bill gates trying to use vaccines that plant microchips in people this is simply going to reinforce their
8:21 pm
fears isn't it yes i somehow i believe absolutely. i'm sorry. you shouldn't believe these people of our super who claims crazy ideas all the time in the coming months and years we will know about the long term solidity of the vaccine and after certification and maybe we'll need to do it again and maybe there will be a 2nd version in all and that will improve the years but we need to save the economy now. surging covert infections has seen the plug poor many of germany's famous christmas market places in the country have been steadily climbing since october authorities say the festive attractions at the heart of many cities are too much of a risk these are all of a has more. 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
8:22 pm
a memory of christmas past is the smells of mold wine the still on sale at the restrictions on selling out cold will harm my business we will leave the lots of income as things stand we can stay here until the 25th december that maybe we'll be allowed to work and up again after the last time is over the sale of a cup of festive cheer is causing it to buy in the country though while bars and restaurants of being forced to close under 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 the stalls disagree though. i think we should do
8:23 pm
everything we can to stop the spread of this virus we wear masks and observe the 2 meters 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. 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 would have by a 20. lock down restrictions that were brought in back in november haven't had the desired effect and 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
8:24 pm
fought rigged this nice moment as hard as it is and i know how much care has gone into setting up the mood to go in and walk instead it's not compatible with what the agreement only take food away and it is home and really story from the bottom of my heart i think the price is 590 deaths a day that is not acceptable that is 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 that it's do open at the same time is a little bit sad because it's christmas and every won't be together and enjoy this time. as it is a bit sad that there's not so much to do at this time but i think we need to be
8:25 pm
cautious and i suppose those few places with mulled wine should remain open it's clear for a bundle of merkel's address to the bundestag that the chancellor wants to see things go further sacrificing christmas spirit in the name of safety peter all over r.t. . british city of birmingham has been branded world because of the names given to 6 new streets include diversity grove equality road and humanity close names were suggested by a member of the public as part of a contest with the winner chosen by a panel of judges but ridicule and accusations of virtue signalling soon followed 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 utter meaningless banality of these new names speaks volumes about the new hollow normal anyway about cross close compliance
