2:01 am
capitol police on a. very good morning you're watching international. a kick in the teeth that's what the british medical association has 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 cobra crisis or despite the n.h.s. receiving an extra $500000000.00 pounds per year under the proposal it would still likely result in a real turn pay cuts for staff as inflation in the u.k. could hit 1.5 percent this year it comes despite the government's repeated claims about supporting the n.h.s. . our n.h.s. is the beating heart of this country it is important that we support our allegiance
2:02 am
we want to see our fantastic front line workers paid properly but we absolutely want to want to rock want to reward n.h.s. staff for what they've done i will be making sure that we fight to have that fair reward i mean i guess the government would have to prioritize and i think nurses in the n.h.s. in general something that we've had prioritized at this moment and i do think they should probably receive more than one percent but it's a symbolic one percent you know what's that's not going to have any impact on and 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. in the meantime a leading british nurses union
2:03 am
a set up a fund to prepare for possible strikes over the deal labor party disappears starmer is also dismissed the proposal saying covert heroes deserve better support but the british health secretary defended the offer and called it affordable given the country's economic downturn and got the opinions of a british nurse and an expert about the proposal. well not least because one can say as nor accurate as can 2nd everything that nazis have done and in each case what is in general for this country jet in the course of a pandemic what it had 10 years of a state it and ask loizeaux north korea. i think you can imagine in each instance. the demoralized the tango and the same people or some government as we had at least a small band of all that asked our government in clout for is to be quite honest but it you may actually szell. we are and the appreciation for his and the image
2:04 am
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 to the u.k.'s a wealthy variation if we divided our resources fairly i think there'd be a lot more that you know would be ample scope for low paid workers and critical work as such the system gets a of more substantial pay rise it's not hard to find examples of how better more cold but. government administration or a fairer taxation system could find the money to give the nurses who've been literally saving lives keeping the country running through this period of more generous offer. french authorities are investigating manslaughter allegations against italy's costa cruises follows the death of 3 people on board
2:05 am
one of the ships from coburg 19 last year a person does of the costa magical claim that they were told about suspected infections and were encouraged by the crew to use the ship's facilities to sure do miss king spoke with one of the passengers. sequoias yes 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 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 munchak or 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 or what was happening as the virus spread through the ship is all over the refused to inform us that there were cases of covert aboard the ship that they
2:06 am
had tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed there were ill people they 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 protected us and didn't ask koester what measures they were putting in place to ensure that your health was the priority or 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 we demanded that they open all the restaurants and all those outside so that people could escape the crews as soon as possible to avoid gatherings they
2:07 am
refused to put in place who these measures the cruise ship was refused permission for passengers to disembark at several ports. only island of moxon eek now these images show this situation all off. so the island's authority told passengers that they had to stay confined to their cabins tensions were high and violence erupted. i was was was. was i was a year later and french investigators approving allegations including manslaughter aggravated to see it and in danger in the lives of others against italy's costa cruises over her mental could be going team cases aboard that ship 3 passengers
2:08 am
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 almost knowing 100 passengers in the complaint filed in france told r.t. that that's not the case and yet 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 blood shut 2 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
2:09 am
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. sure at them they would be no telly and so bored he said me they knew a week in advance that the crews could not last so yes it's true it was a strange health situation near the start or just a little in advance of the pandemic 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 covert and they wrote we have the emails and letters from costa which say no there will be no italian passengers yes they lied and 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 let's even ski. weil. u.s. capitol police have requested bolden 2000 national guard troops to remain in washington d.c. for in of the 2 months but with tensions remaining high after the january rise even room is. enough to put the media and police on edge and i'm open explains it is no exaggeration to say that there was serious panic in the lead up to march 4th a new threat against the u.s. capital a possible militia plot to storm the capital as early as tomorrow we are watching this threat stream the information social media other sources with respect to this particular day march 4th federal law enforcement is on full alert after warnings from intelligence officials that another attack on the u.s. capitol could be a minute preparations were serious hundreds of national guard patrolling the area
2:11 am
capitol police released a statement on wednesday warning possible plot to breach the capitol by an unidentified militia group a local businesses have warned tenants about possible protests you might have gotten the impression watching meteor reports that u.s. officials were bracing for the purge as citizens rushed to get home before commencing. we advise you to get off the streets as quickly as possible it'll 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 q.
2:12 am
and on is the idea that a group of satanic blood drinking pedophiles have seized control of the u.s. government and media app. rattus 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 stay down this road is credible it's real human 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
2:13 am
stuffing for a number of days to include much the fool 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 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 and i actually have a lot of conservative friends and a lot of populous conservative friends and
2:14 am
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 ministration a position where they have to actually face the failures that they have had through almost only a month and a half of being in office people were talking about a $2000.00 check that's what they want to know they want to wear their checks 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 out accountable i promise you nobody going to the capital to being a day the mainstream media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret cryptic nazi symbols false flag inaugurations all of this would make
2:15 am

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 even the opposition is even more her key to send the syrian refugees back and of course the problem is how the bird deniz government manages the whole situation whether those send them to you know sort of return. 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 rightly liberated most of the country from these wretched.

a national social community the objectives on you could make it something like. running up public park or providing public education or providing gained public health care in other words it is a human right and it is a basic requirement of civilized society and so it gets the priority that properly goals 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 temperate doom's feed the people who are in our community we
2:21 am
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 1st visit to the country the leader of the catholic church hopes to rally the country's christian population which is due in build after years of war and oppression and karen pics of 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 christie and community is the police showed me you know him into several terrible i am coming as a pilgrim as
2:22 am
a penitence pilgrim to implore from the lord forgiveness and reconciliation of 2 years of war and terrorism to break from god the consolation of hearts and the healing of we here. as well as highlighting their plight the pope's 1st international trip since the pandemic hit is aimed at reassuring iraq's dwindling number of christians and fosdike interreligious dialogue such high expectations but perhaps are realistic to believe this trip could bring about any real progress however 2 decades ago it could have been 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
2:23 am
overran northern iraq and 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 on the fathomable that the christian faith could disappear from iraq and tiley well the pope's visit bring hope to christiane's probably will it change their lives probably not it's not going to help the christians materially directly because we are really in a very corrupt political and economic system no doubt about plants he will hear nice words but when it comes to doing today you suz i think that's a different story western countries were not oblivious to the situation the u.s.
