1:01 am
come true. hi there very good morning to you thanks so much for joining us this is r.t. international. a kick in the teeth that's what the british medical association is called the government's one percent pay rise offer for health care workers something health unions say undermines the value of those who quote kept the country alive during the crisis despite the n.h.s. receiving an extra $500000000.00 pounds per year under the proposal it was still likely result in a real term pay cut for staff as inflation in the u.k. could hit 1.5 percent this year britain say the government could do more. i mean i guess the government would have to prioritize and i think nurses in the n.h.s. in general something that we should prioritize at this moment and i do think they
1:02 am
should probably receive more than one percent but it's a symbolic one percent. but what's that's not going to have any impact on the it just feels like a very it's like a very weak offer from the government it's not right you know there's always companies that made so much money off the back of. those have been in the middle of it haven't done so well and it energizes critically underfunded and you know the government can afford lots of other things you look at all the contracts they've been giving to their friends meanwhile a leading british nurses union has set up a fund to prepare for possible strikes over the deal labor party leader secures starmer is also dismissed the proposal saying covert heroes deserve better support the british health secretary defended the offer calling it affordable given the country's economic downturn and got the opinion of a british nurse and expert about the proposed. but not least because one can say
1:03 am
as nor accurate as can 2nd everything that nazis have done and in each case what else in general for that country jet in the course of the pandemic what it had 10 years of a state it and ask loizeaux me not that i think you can imagine any. anti demoralized the tangle and the saying the flaws some government i think we had at least a small band of all that i asked our government for is actually quite a bit communist by to be made actually szell. we are and the appreciation for it is and the image unfortunately that was amassed opportunity for the government i think it's fairly understandable that public servants who are doing a really difficult job or a really difficult time would feel that they ought to be rewarded more fair in the u.k. he's a wealthy variation if we divided our resources fairly i think there'd be a lot more that you know would be ample sco for low paid workers and critical work
1:04 am
as such the system gets a. more substantial pay rise it's not hard to find examples of how better more competent. government administration or a fairer taxation system to find the money to give the nurses who've been literally saving lives keeping the country running through this period of a more generous offer. french authorities have opened a manslaughter probe into italy's costa cruises that follows the death of 3 people on board one of its ships last year from covert 90 person does of course the magical claim that they weren't told about suspected infections and were encouraged by the crew to use the ship's facilities are dubious king spoke with one of the passengers said quote the cruise was a chance to go with my son who was 5 years old to see. a magical world and discover the magic of the caribbean instead it was
1:05 am
a nightmare i wondered how i would get out of this hell because if i didn't i was going to die stephanie dubois was one of thousands of holiday makers aboard the costa magical last year when the covert pandemic hit for her and her then 5 year old son it was supposed to be a dream voyage instead passengers found themselves trapped aboard with little information on what was happening as the virus spread through the ship. they refused to inform us that there were cases of covert aboard the ship that they had tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed there were people they've refused to give us information and we got it from the media when we were near the coast and could get a signal they concealed it from us and they didn't let us protect ourselves they didn't protect us either health wise they didn't treat us very well and not at all humanely but also they avoided putting in place barrier measures which could have
1:06 am
protected us and did you ask koester what measures they were putting in place to ensure that your health was the priority you know. the tension increased very quickly we were in a state of tension and anguish which i just can't describe finally after huge days this virus spread strongly we asked them to cut the air conditioning and they refused and we demanded that they opened the restaurants and those outside to the people could escape the crews the soonest possible to avoid gatherings he refused to put in place these measures the cruise ship was refused permission for passengers to disembark at several ports including only island of martinique now these images show this situation off to the islands authority told passengers that they had to stay confined to a cabin. since tensions were high and violence erupted. i

was was. was. was was a near late and french investigators are proving allegations including monsoon to aggravated to sit around in the long lives of others against italy's costa cruises over her model could be going team cases aboard that ship 3 passengers from the virus the company denies the accusations saying that it and the crew acted on the scam to information that was available about the forests the toyman considering that at that time the situation was a valving rapidly and the ship's medical team acted on the basis of the vailable scientific information and full compliance with the instructions of the health authorities and in constant coordination with them but the lawyer who represents
1:08 am
almost knowing 100 passengers in the complaint filed in france told r.t. that that's not the case and you can see there was no more hand sanitizer it was replaced by water very clearly or it was either totally empty or didn't exist no security or health measures there were 3 restaurants and little addition to that there was only one open and there were 2300 passengers who came for lunch breakfast and dinner one after the other without health measures and he claims that the company was fully aware before setting sail that there were troubled waters ahead even loyal to holiday makers he said that they had questioned whether there would be a tally in passengers on board as at that time italy had become the latest hub for the virus costing he says assured them there would be no talons on board he sent me . a new. we can advance that the crews could not last so yes it's true it was
1:09 am
a strange health situation near the start or just a little in advance of the country hence the concern of the french passengers to know if there were any italian passengers at this time it was a european country hit hard by convert and they wrote we have the e-mails and letters from cause we say no there will be no italian passengers yes they lived but they should have cancelled this cruise because they knew what could happen the passengers who have brought these complaints now have to wait to see if it will be taken for stephanie it's already been a long and tough journey but she's determined that costa cruises should be held responsible so it's even ski altie legal. u.s. capitol police have requested more than 2000 national guard troops to remain in washington d.c. for another 2 months it comes as rumors of renewed violence amid ongoing political tensions in the u.s. but the capital on high alert caleb maupin explains. it is no exaggeration to say

soon be a war there. so what happened when the fateful day finally arrived nothing what does it take to put the u.s. government on edge apparently just some lame internet rumors it all started with q. and a on conspiracy theorists on the internet they said that the inauguration of joe biden was a big false flag and that the pentagon was planning to install donald trump on march 4th the original inauguration date in u.s. history well obviously that did not happen now the main conspiracy theory of cuban on is the idea that a group of satanic blood drinking pedophiles have seized control of the u.s. government and media apparatus and that donald trump and his allies are waging a heroic covert war against them behind the scenes some of blame donald trump for not denouncing the militia groups and cuban on conspiracy theorists who rally behind him you know the president has a responsibility to tell him to stand down this red. is credible it's real human
1:12 am
on conspiracy theories and delusions aside joe biden won the election he has been inaugurated so why is the country still on edge and blaming the former president there were no violent actions or big protests on march 4th but law enforcement was on high alert the whole thing was taken very very seriously the department continues to work with all of them. and is based on the intelligence that we have the department has taken immediate steps to enhance our security posture and stuffing for a number of days to include much the fools the u.s. house of representatives even canceled their meeting later nancy pelosi insisted that the meeting was not cancelled just moved to an earlier time if in fact there's any trouble makers around and it makes sense. i don't think anybody should take any encouragement that because some troublemakers might
1:13 am
show up and that we change the whole schedule now we just moved in a few hours there's now a call to extend the national guard presence around the u.s. capitol just in case internet liberals have decided that a secret nazi conspiracy has taken over the republican party their proof the shape of the stage at sea-tac apocalyptic scenarios are now starting to become a regular aspect of american political discourse i actually have a lot of conservative friends and a lot of populous conservative friends and a lot of trump supporters. and none of the had talked about this until the mainstream you brought it up rumors only cause panic if the rumors are given air by the right you know media i just think it's a justification to not put this in a position where they have to actually face the failures that they've had almost only a month and a half of being you know people were talking about
1:14 am
a $2000.00 check that's what they would. no i don't know where their checks are that i want to hear about that where the money or where the health care you know what's going on in our economy right now is you know those are the things we don't see anyone once again holding biden accountable in the same way that we expected to be unaccountable i promise you nobody going to the capitol to see a day the me media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret cryptic nazi symbols false flag inaugurations all of this would make a great hollywood movie or netflix mini series but in the real world america seems to have some pretty big problems like crumbling infrastructure unpopular wars and cultural polarization however our political discourse seems to be stuck in fantasyland kaleb mop and artsy new york. the u.n. report suggests that almost $1000000000.00 tons of food is being wasted globally

in the depths. or a made in the shallows. by the 21st century america is exhausted it's just tired and it doesn't have anything approach that in march but china after being on the margins for so long does have something to prove and they do have the capacity and they are putting shoulder to the wheel and they are working to. welcome back denmark has stripped almost 100 syrian refugees of their residency same they should return home now major parts of the country are considered safe it is the 1st year of been nation to back such a move. we have made it clear to the syrian refugees that their residence permit distemper it can be withdrawn that protection is no longer needed the government
1:17 am
says the $94.00 migrants will be sent to danish deportation camps but won't be forced to leave them there in the hope they'll want to go back to syria of their own accord the moves part of the ruling parties aim to have 0 asylum seekers applying for residency human rights groups have lashed out the move saying it goes against people's rights to be protected from persecution we spoke with shabbir razvi political and economic analyst he's concerned about denmark's approach. there's a sort of movement taking place in denmark and a question in europe where right wing parties and nationalistic parties have come into power and denmark is. having a sort of center right government at this moment and in their position is even more keen to send the syrian refugees back and of course the problem is how the bird deniz government manages the whole situation whether those send
1:18 am
them to you know sort of return the arms if you like the refugee camps and prefer to go back to syria but the reality is that the situation in syria is significantly better than it whereas you know even 2 years ago the government in damascus has gradually liberated most of the country from these wretched. isis people who are creating havoc in syria there sooner or later a lot of the refugees whether they're living in denmark germany or united kingdom me want to go back. $930000000.00 tonnes that's the amount of food wasted by households in the service industry globally each year according to research done by the un environment program according to that report 17 percent of all food produced is thrown away which is responsible for about 10 percent of
1:19 am
the world's greenhouse gas emissions more than $570000000.00 tons of food waste comes from households alone businesses governments and citizens around the world have to do their part to reduce food waste let us all shop carefully to creatively and make waste in food anywhere socially unacceptable economist and author richard wolfe believes the food industry is partly responsible. you can produce food as a national social community the objectives on you could make it something like. running up public park or providing public education or providing public health care in other words it is a human right it is a basic requirement of civilized society and so it gets the priority that properly
1:20 am
goes with that we don't do that in the united states and in many other countries either instead what we have in the united states and in other countries is a profit driven food system if we did it differently if the priority was take the food we can produce to feed the people who are in our community we would have taken steps law would know to make sure that the food is properly produced properly packaged properly process and properly consumed that whole it's not difficult to teach people out and do it to provide them with the equipment and they would pay for itself very quickly in a better fed healthier population. pope francis has called for an end to extremism and violence in iraq during his historic visit to
1:21 am
the country the leader of the catholic church hopes the rally the country's christian population which is 2 and a lefty is a war in depression auntie's mccarran has the story. pope francis has embarked on a historic visit to iraq defying security affairs on the pandemic in a bid to comfort one of the world's oldest and most persecuted christiane communities reporters ordered me to settle to a warning i am coming as a pilgrim as if only to. implore from the more forgiveness and reconciliation of 2 years of war and terrorism of the bank from god as a consolation under the healing of each of you as well as highlighting their plight to the pope's 1st international trip since the pandemic hit is aimed at reassuring iraq's dwindling number of christians and fosdike into religious dialogue such high expectations but perhaps i'm realistic to believe this trip could bring about any real progress however 2 decades ago it could have been
1:22 am
a very different story and as a result one of the world's oldest christian communities and seen its numbers it plummets from 1500000 in 2003 to the current 175000 with little option many have fled the country to escape the religiously motivated violence that has plagued the country since the u.s. led invasion in 2003 tens of thousands were also displaced when the islamic state overran northern iraq in 2014 destroying churches and seizing property they were faced with a choice pay a tax convert leave or face death western countries are not oblivious to the situation the u.s. has provided humanitarian aid when islamic state terrorists overran parts of the country there was no where on is no one to turn to and the bleak reality is the pope's trip comes at a time when it's not unfathomable that the christian faith could disappear from
1:23 am
iraq and tiley well the pope's visit bring hope to christians probably will it change their lives probably not it's not going to help the christians. tiriel or directly because we are really in a very corrupt political and economic system no doubt about that he will hear nice words but when it comes to day to day issues no i think that's a different story western countries were not oblivious to the situation the us has provided humanitarian aid but there's of course have done nothing to stop the torment. finally fashion boohoo staunch supporter of the black lives matter movement appears not to be so woke when it comes to his own employees human rights groups have accused the company of paying staff below the minimum wage and of poor working conditions during the pandemic the british retailer could be facing a ban in the us. the
