a similar case in france last october led to the brutal murder of some real history teacher in paris he was beheaded by a terrorist after showing cartoons of the prophet mohammed to his people's. uncles and one of our competitors was murdered because he touched our compassion it was the victim of an islamist terror attack. our political and social commentator on to india from christian concern locked horns on the issues raised. this could be very easily turning into
1:04 am
some kind of power can. he do not throw police matches into such things we've seen in france and in many european countries the rise of the far right we've seen some 2 tier civil rights system pushing against islam pushing against muslims marginalizing them and it's open season on muslims courage attack them on free speech but this isn't people who make themselves up to be free speech martyrs or somehow muslims become inflamed in their own city in western valleys listen what's most alarming here is that the teacher asked how to go into hiding with police protection because what he's done he's discussed a point of discussion about a cartoon and the wider subjects of blasphemy he hasn't actually hurt anyone he hasn't actually even threatened any violence and yet there are obviously probably real threats of violence against him so much so that the police are going to protect him and take his family his wife and his children into hiding i think that is very very concerning this is really an appalling situation and i'm glad the
1:05 am
government is spoken out against it and i think we need to recover a sense of normality in a sense of people being able to openly discuss and educate people about this well here is the difficulty and i am probably about a 100 years old and i've been around the block a few times and have this discussion a few times every time we've had this discussion on free speech and debate we have put down the worst of the ideas racism trade we know it's not ok to be racist against muslims to make the argument is it alright to be racist or is this racist in some of the reports that come from it but the community of carette where this teacher was there were teachers or this teacher was saying to pupils that your boy is how we've been in the legs of our boys in iraq we need to look at the cultural me you know we need the cultural context here we need to investigate this racism moves it's not unseasonable muslims there are groups allied in the west that . using muslims as the wedge issue and it's not as the tool islam as i understand
1:06 am
it has always expressed the right to free speech islam has always in trying these bounties which were adopted into the west try to muslims in gauging with europeans we didn't have the cultural civilizational conversation which led to the enlightenment or to the founding fathers of america with john locke and edward so what this says is that we need to learn about religion that we need to learn about what people believe and we need to openly discuss them and people and soup about them let's be very clear about this that this goes through a cartoon it's got about how it has nothing to do with racism it's not racism at all what's happening here is people are trying to shut down at this gusen and using threats of plants. people who work with the english defense league and the muslim interest across europe and the rest of the well to try and demonize muslims marginalize them would have you not you will not win the cultural debate of is he ok to be poked fun at and be racist against muslims out of the all of us read what else is and you don't get to be offensive towards us. has become
1:07 am
a left wing politician reignites a national debate on identity politics in france the same the white people must keep quiet and racism is discussed. aggravated fraud and involuntary manslaughter that's what a french giant pharma company has been found guilty off by a court in one of the country's worst health scandals the case revolves around the diabetes and weight loss drug called mediator which has been on the market for 33 years and used by 5000000 people it's believed to have caused at least 500 deaths over heart related issues he spoke to one of the victims affected by the drug. you know when a person is ruined for 10 years when you with a mechanical pretty sisson take medication for 10 years to live you can't think this is normal has been going on every day since i retired this is crazy
1:08 am
fortunately i called my lawyer who i need right now he's always ready to help us as you can see i came here with my daughter because someone must be with me all i can do is drive 20 to 30 kilometers a day we didn't get what we wanted but my lawyer will continue to pursue this case . servia the company behind the druggist me sat with a fine of almost 3000000 euro while france's medicine watchdog has also been fined for covering up the dangers associated with the pill knowledge that was partly responsible for the scandal given public concerns over french pharma lobbying. the company behind the drugs says it was unaware of the adverse side effects until the trial started but the french doctor who 1st discovered the fatal risks told us the company been deliberately hiding vital information on patients. about the federal debt i have been fighting for 14 years for the fact to be recognized that incredible fraud was committed by a large french manufacturer
1:09 am
a pharmaceutical company with a good reputation which secretly released a strong poison on the market and was selling it for more than a decade and totally knew what it was doing it is difficult to find words to describe such actions this is called a crime namely aggravated fraud the fine they have to pay as a punishment is not very high but the amount that will have to be paid as compensation for more damage to millions of civilians affected by the fraud is still impressive about $200000000.00 euros so the total payments are negligible but the court's decision in general is frustrating it is not enough. the world anti-doping agency is looking into whether its u. k. wing is guilty of a cover up or other wants to establish why british cycling was allowed to run its own inquiry into a rider who tested positive for a banned substance in the run up to the london olympics. he has more. the united kingdom anti doping agency has now found itself right in the middle of
1:10 am
what's being described and dubbed as the latest scandal in british sport so it comes as these allegations have now surfaced surrounding the investigation of an abnormal drug test all over cyclists during the london 2012 olympic games so much so the world anti-doping agency is now weighing in and launching an investigation some of the information provided to wada on this is of significant concern we have asked our independent intelligence and investigations department to look into this matter and to conduct u.k. and to do we're going to see further information well it's claimed that u.k. 80 which is of course the body responsible for policing clean sport domestically allegedly allowed british cycling to conduct its own probe after this individual provided a sample with an absolutely unusual amount of nandrolone which is a banned steroid in and out of competition tests plausible explanations range from health issues are one end but other ends and explanations include contaminated supplements and that's exactly what waters investigation is all about looking at
1:11 am
how likely any of these options really are of course as a reminder under the water code it would be up to u.k. a d. to conduct such a probe at the time however it's now understood that u.k. it is for the issue can be resolved and is cooperating with water we are working with wada to investigate claims relating to private testing carried out by british cycling in 2011 you can it is examining archives to confirm decisions that were taken in 2011 followed due process set by wada now it's claimed that british cycling conducted its own testing absolutely privately and did not then pass on those results to the u.k. a deal so now is saying it's reviewing all of its processes but of course given the length of time between 2012 and now or nearly a whole decade ago it's really making it difficult to connect the dots at this stage we're. able to give full comment on the story at this stage is the events
1:12 am
took place over 10 years ago and none of the senior management team involved have worked for british cycling for some time we are reviewing such archived records that exist from this period and a loop that is not a straight forward or quick process we will share the findings with the relevant parties well this is the 2nd scandal to sweep the nation for british cyclists this month or earlier a former british cycling team dr richard freeman was found guilty of not only ordering a banned substance but knowing and believing it was to be used to dope a rider at the time back in 2011 now freeman has since been charged by u.k. deal with 2 anti doping or violations and completely struck off at the british medical register as a result as well so not looking too good then this month but of course the timing of all this is particularly bad with lesson 128 days to go before the tokyo games again it's really bad timing considering great britain has always been one of the more dominant nations nations in the discipline stacking up new murderous medals
1:13 am
out various competitions now there is of course serious doubt now cast even in retrospect cast on the performances at the london 2012 olympics and other victories including other competitions like the tour de france. left wing politicians come under fire in front of the same that white people must be silent when discussing racism this is once again sponsor national debate about the encroachments of us woke and demanding french values he should do because he picks up the story. the empty wine debate has been stirred up once again here in france this time after a black politician waded into a row that's been raging over the student union which admitted it held meetings about discrimination that excluded white people this is what exists it exists is this real union says this is now owed reprove
1:14 am
a member of the paris local authority and this standing in the coming elections has added her $0.02 she suggested white people could be allowed into those meetings but only if they keep quiet. i'm not saying anyone should be banned from entering but they should stay silent and let others speak in issues that concern them her comments severed opinion sprong scrambles to deal with a rise in identity politics for those on the right this is seen as an unwelcome american import that undermining universalis french valleys a form of personal culture in my region no resident should be discriminated against for the color of their skin there is no such thing as acceptable racism i will always be a bulwark against those who try to fracture our country others went even further saying that. the unit students' union with the stuff of martin luther king's
1:15 am
knowing is. the king would be turning in his grave he who dreamed of living in a country where people would not be judged by the color of this scale but by the qualities of their personality but audrey prove those remarks gain support from some on the left including from the leader of france on burn out who said that she had merely undisturbed what it discussion group is politicians have been more than vocal but what do ordinary people think is it ok. to exclude white people from the debate and if so is that racist you know well it's an absolute horror i don't know how people are going to legitimize such nonsense we should just mental this racist remarks from scratch. what about if that is really only in your for me it's not acceptable to screwed white people for meetings i view that as racist on of course
1:16 am
it is always i think it's perfectly legitimate to exclude white people from the meetings prosecutor felicitous i'm france has always been a country which respects human rights and does not look primarily at the color of people skin. color 70 about the numbers are oh not personally concerned about white racism but i think it exists. there's no letup in the crisis on america's southwestern border with thousands of migrants crossing from mexico on a daily basis many being held at severely overcrowded detention facilities in texas and the federal government's also coming under pressure to allow journalist access it more than explains. the biden administration is now struggling to deal with an upsurge of illegal crossings of the us border we have detained individuals being held in overcrowded facilities but the biden ministration does not seem to be anxious to let the public know what is really going on we recently saw republican
1:17 am
u.s. senator ted cruz visiting a facility only to have officials from the immigration and customs enforcement blocking his view and preventing him from taking a photograph this is what happened when ted cruz visited a detention facility for migrants you were hired 2 weeks ago and you're instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken these respected because the political leadership of the dia just does not want the american people to know anything that we're here standing in the in front of the pictures so you know that people are thinking the rules are arbitrary and there's i believe that if people highly reactive and i want to fix this situation we are going to get an iteration you're one of the $400.00 responsible for these conditions now at this point the biden ministration continues to say what it is said all along which is that it is committed to transparency however when the time comes to actually let that transparency happen we have some pretty strong excuses coming from jen psaki of the
1:18 am
white house spokesperson here's what we've heard we are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic we want to keep these kids safe keep the staff safe but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities and we're working to get that done as soon as we can so this is being set up and you have access to everything once we get the. ok just to be clear how soon will that be mr president i don't know. to be clear. now at this point we've got some voices that seem to be determined not to portray what's happening on the border as a crisis this is a memo from the associated press about how to describe the situation we should avoid or at the least be highly cautious about referring to the present situation as a crisis on our own who we made quote others using that language while the associated press says it may not actually fit the dictionary definition of a crisis
1:19 am
a recent poll taken among the u.s. public shows that 76 percent of americans believe the situation on the us border is indeed a crisis radio host and political analyst day perkins believes that by demonstrations trying to hide the bunch ups's made over migrants. the worst charge against them right now is mistreatment of these people these young people and children at the border someone claiming as jen psaki claims transparency is what you'll get and dignity and respect is what these people get and it's just completely opposite of that they're not in a dignified situation they've got thousands of people sleeping elbow to needy and big toed to nose you know stacked on the floor so tight they have to sleep on their side and they can't roll over and that's a complete embarrassment for the by the ministration they're not even testing those people and i'm sure thousands of them do have various viral loads and are bringing them across to infect ordinary americans who are not as yet completely vaccinated
1:20 am
so that's another great danger that is being forced on the american people in the name of this fraud because they want this story off the headlines when you ask biden when the transparency is going to be delivered by his administration he says i don't know they're up to something else this is not a matter of trying to help impoverished people from from 3rd world countries because americans and reap the benefits of residents here this is not about that. 2 teenage girls have been chance with an. 8 striver was killed in washington d.c. last week bystander cole incident on camera a warning you may find some of the images coming out now disturbing 2 suspects took control of the kaaba speeding off down the street with the driver hanging on to the door it can be seen crashing into a metal area and flipping on to its side drive the 66 year old mohammad down well
1:21 am
was thrown from the vehicle onto the pavement and later died in hospital the suspects isis 13 and 15 the names have not been disclosed they say that goes he's a taser honest and well before taking his face. c.n.n. strong criticism for its choice of words when it labeled what happened there an accident many people taking to twitter saying the outlet should be using much stronger terms we heard from conservative commentator and to brian logan about how the girl's race may be a factor. as the same thing as a colorado shooting i mean that was a really big story and it was spoken about a little bit here and there but not so much when the race of the actual shooter was was revealed and the victims you have a person from syria which is in asia technically you have always victims the narrative is not there they always referred to the atlanta shooting and never really anything else because of the race of the people involved but because you
1:22 am
have 2 black girls residents who are girls and i love to say we're kind of hands off in the mainstream media if people are being on these they look at all these incidents for what they are and then you say ok this has been a race that could have been a race then you have to ask what else is going on then you dig a little bit deeper and you found out some more troubling issues about some of these places where a lot of democrats have been in power for a long time policies have been in place for a long time that have divided the family they say it's those things go against the typical leftist mainstream narrative they're talking about it all day pretty much swept under the rug. the coronavirus pandemics pushing brazil's health care system to the point of collapse so one informatics is the daily infection rate tops 100000 with daily deaths approaching the $4000.00 mark they have and reports. while much of the world uses restrictions and scenes to try to tame the coronavirus brazil's outbreak is worse than it was as
1:23 am
a baby with almost all states is in intensive care units near 0 at full capacity but patients continuing to arrive in their droves brazil already accounts for one quarter of the well daily coronavirus death new kovac 1000 cases in the country topped 100001 march 25th with the weekly death rate doubling to $15000.00 in just one month and with only 2 percent of the population vaccinated figure is approaching the oneness level seen by the united states. so how did things get so bad well brazil's 2 biggest cities have pleaded for people to stay home and the state run fines and technology institute has called for a 14 day lock down to reduce transmission but as we've all seen such measures are only as strong as the compliance of citizens.
1:24 am
when of course there's brazil's our spoken president who has repeatedly undermined any attempt to impose restrictions which has in turn perhaps bolstered those who share his opinions as the daily death count surpassed 3500 rio's copacabana beach saw hundreds of moscow's protesters march many were in the conspicuous green and yellow shirts where ministers are pro bowl sonora rallies be a source for them all these people mainly because of the competence of the brazilian authorities and principly of the brazilian government. do you think we could reach 150000 deaths today seeing we've reached 300000 dead it seems surreal and this is however just the tip of the iceberg of brazil's kobe didn't flick to suffering unemployment is peaking and with emergency cash payments from the federal
1:25 am
government now being cut off the result has plunged millions into poverty that we're here we're here because we don't have enough money i have to pay my rent and i have 3 songs which equip we can get because every expense meal. i thought it would destroy if we could work we wouldn't be dependent on emergency aid we would need to come here and take from others who also need help at the moment and behind in my payments my car has broken down we only leave home to come here and get food. you know if there is no sanitizer in the favelas not face masks when you need to fight against hunger when you need to fight for survival so we really need help from society to maintain this operation so we can provide the minimal dignity for those who have nothing but it is a good thing we created a group of female cooks who have been working this story since last year we have already delivered more than 1300000 boxes here increase our police we have
1:26 am
numberless the network of carry so we can fight hunger in this crisis faced by the community brazil is in a state of crisis and only now is president both the noro the man who famously branded kovi a little flu and a man who just weeks ago complained of the dangers of wearing face masks has agreed to hold weekly meetings to discuss measures to curb the epic spread if there will be a lot of us were in the grip of a new variant of the corona virus this taking the lives of many brazilians we have 2 major challenges virus and unemployment by the end of the year we will have more than 500000000 doses to vaccinate the whole population very soon we will return to our normal lives it's a tiny step forward for a man who continues to promote unproven covert 19 kills while his nation suffers until now as a more contagious variant of the virus rampages across brazil from
1:27 am
a asking is it too little too late or too much no subsumes but i'll just say we don't know brazil will end and we can see the world looking at the country with astonishment and fear these causes as great. schools grow in germany to impose another strict coronavirus lockdown the country's already struggling. catering industry is on tenterhooks of what the future might hold. a german burger chain is just one of many business owners struggling to stay afloat. jim some would you go to school in june 1st look down there was still motivations of fights but now it's fading fast and the light at the end of the tunnel is what the restaurateurs lek we all like it's.
1:28 am
easy to stifle assistance programs that need to be greatly simplified and disbursements must be significantly accelerated people don't need to wait months for payments and the even greater risk they've had over a year to work out this plan in detail but it still doesn't work. through a move apply for financial assistance from november and december for 2 businesses i own we're talking about 130000 euro for november 160000 full december i received 60000 euros and i need to cover the costs of $2.00 companies and stone full time benefits can also be applied full but you will not receive it until 3 months later this means a 1st you have to pay everything out of your pockets. this
1:29 am
policy has not changed for a year of course they need to learn a new thanks otherways out or emerging and clothing through new technological advances you cannot stay put and hope that everything will be fine the bundestag elections in september are also likely to play a role nobody wants to make a mistake because in the end you may not be elected but this is not about politics not about federal politics or electoral mandates. but about our society as a whole especially about the event industry and catering establishment because they are bursting at the seams. rather than with our top stories in 30 minutes.
1:30 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy going foundation let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic to follow through the only mostly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
