8:00 am
the. headline. treated with. me here is that. with police protection. where a politician. is
8:01 am
found guilty of. one of the country's. top stories for this. international. warning their prime minister that trouble is brewing if more respect isn't shown to muslims ultimately insinuating the country could go the way of. a softer a teacher in. the community by showing the prophet mohammed. all we ask for is a bit of respect if one teacher can do it another teach can do it 5 years down the line and we do not want this to be the case otherwise we are not responsible for the actions of some individuals however the emma says that he condemns any
8:02 am
assertions that promote violence the teacher who sparked be outrage showed the prophet mohammad caricature as during a class debate on blasphemy he and his family are in hiding after receiving death threats he's apologized but has been suspended though some local muslims are demanding that the school should fire him however a petition calling on the school to reinstate him has gone over 65000 signatures while the u.k. department of education is defending the teacher it is never acceptable to threaten the intimidates teaches we encourage dialogue between parents and schools when he she has emerged schools are free to include a full range of issues ideas and materials in their curriculum included with the challenge in a controversial subject today obligations to ensure political balance or outrage over a similar case in france last october of course led to the brutal murder of samuel patty a history teacher in a paris he was beheaded by
8:03 am
a terrorist after showing cartoons of the prophet mohammed to his pupils. i'm looking at one of our compassion as was murdered because he taught our compassion it was the victim of an islamist terror attack. i'm. we spoke with him from christian can sign on to my one song a political and social commentator who well they look colin's over the issues debated. this could be very easily turning into some kind of a powder keg and you do not throw that matches into such things we've
8:04 am
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 basis and people make themselves up to be free speech martyrs or somehow muslims become inflamed of their own 15 western values so what's most alarming here is that a teacher asked her to go into hiding with police protection because what he's done he's he's discussed opened a discussion about a cartoon and the why the subject of blasphemy he hasn't actually hurt anyone he hasn't actually even threatened any violence and yet there are obviously very real threats of violence against him so much so the police to protect him and take his family his wife and his children into hiding i think that is very very concerning 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 these things and i've been around the block a few times and have this discussion
8:05 am
a few times every time we've had this discussion on free speech and debate we have put down to worst of the ideas racism hatred we know it's not ok to be racist against muslims to make the argument is your right to be racist or is this racist we need to learn about religion that we need to learn about what people believe and we need to openly discuss them and so people and super about it let's be very clear about this that discussing a cartoon it's got about how it has nothing to do with basis and it's not racism at all what's happening here is people are trying to shut down a discussion and using threats of violence we will judge. people who work with the english defense league you keep anti muslim interest across europe and the rest of the while to try and demonize muslims marginalize them would have enough you will not win the cultural debate. or is it ok to be poke fun and be racist against muslims out of their loved ones reza what else is and you don't get to be offensive towards us this is not the way a free society should work he should definitely be defended it's all he's done is
8:06 am
race a discussion people should be free to discuss things in class if we're not free to discuss things we have a de facto blasphemy law in the country which is being enforced by more cruel that threatens violence against people well there's another cultural debate raging across the english channel where a french leftwing politician is under fire for saying white people should stay out of discussions on racism or critics or the remarks yet another sign of how us style woke culture is undermining european and french values as our correspondent charlotte to. the empty white debate is being 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 he says it exists it exists this reunion subsists now dri prove
8:07 am
a member of the paris local authority and a standing in the upcoming regional 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 all this speak in issues that concern them her comments severed opinion a strong scrambles to deal with a rise in identity politics for those on the right this is seen as an unwelcome american import that's undermining universalist french valleys a form of healthful culture in my region no resident should be discriminated against for the color. there 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
8:08 am
saying that ordering for the united states with the stuff of martin luther king's nightmares and. martin luther 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 their skin but by the qualities of their personality but ordinary poor vos remarks gain support from some on the left including from the leader of france and barrett who said that she had merely understood 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 a debate and if so is that racist. it's an absolute horror i don't know how people can legitimize such nonsense we should just mental this racist remarks from scratch. for me it's not acceptable to screwed white people for meetings i view that as racist. and of course of this i think it's perfectly
8:09 am
legitimate to exclude white people from the meetings because if they feel it's them france has always been a country which respects human rights and does not look primarily at the color of people skin. just because 70 bethen the numbers are oh no it's personally concerned about uncivilized traces but i think it exists see you know i mean if you if it were the other way around if the national party or rightwing m.p. said that black or arabic people should be quiet during an event dedicated to the victims of terrorism that's what's also cause public outrage the entire political class all the media would just be fired leave bale against this person and condemn him because it's racist france only sees 3 colors blue whites and red it distinguishes between citizens only on their merits and not on their roots race or religion i think this is very serious obviously the statement by audrey paul why is
8:10 am
racist and should be universally condemned there can be no double standards here racism is universal unfortunately there are various forms of racism and hatred and we are faced with this everywhere. i graduated fraud and involuntary manslaughter that's what french pharmaceutical giant servia has been found guilty of in one of the country's worst health scandals the case revolves around the diabetes and a weight loss drug media which is polluted of course at least 500 deaths due to heart problems the pill had been on the market for 33 years it was used by 5000000 people we heard from someone who took the drug and now has a prosthetic heart valve. you know when a person is ruined for 10 years when you with a mechanical pretty serious and 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 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
8:11 am
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 the manufacturer has been slapped with a fine of almost 3000000 euros even france is national medicine watchdog has been fined for delaying the stoppage of the drug sales the agency acknowledged it was partly responsible for the scandal and it comes amid concerns of pharmaceutical companies allegedly lobbying government bodies also says it was unaware of the adverse side effects until the trial started the french doctor who 1st discovered the fatal risks told us the company had been deliberately hiding vital information from clients but also because my bar. i have been fighting for 14 years for the fact to be recognized that's an incredible fraud was committed by a large french manufacturer and pharmaceutical company with a good reputation which secretly released
8:12 am
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 find they have to pay as a punishment is not very high but the amount that will have to be paid as compensation from all the 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. kind of has become the latest in a growing list of countries to suspend the astra zeneca coronavirus vaccine over safety fears the country's immunization advisory committee said the risks were just too high to give the injection to under 55 years there is substantial uncertainty about the benefit of providing astra zeneca 1000 faxing to adults under 55 years of age given that the potential risks associated with. forcing
8:13 am
particularly at the low estimated rates only last week the country's drug watchdog said the job was safe to use on recommended people get it as soon as quickly well they did however update the label on the vaccine to warn of the risk of blood clots other move comes following recent data from europe that suggests the risk of blood clots could be 10 times higher than previously thought although there have been no reports of cases in canada so far. we spoke to one u.s. doctor about the potential risks of new coronavirus vaccine. we really don't have good scientific evidence either that or there's more corruption in some government agencies than in others and there are more conflicts of interest more interest in denying that there are that there are bad side effects i think that people need to understand that they're taking the vaccine at their own risk and the the manufacturers the distributors vaccinators everybody is
8:14 am
a museum from product liability so if a person dies or has a crippling neurologic disease or some other and verse effect very little if any compensation will be available we have tested this only for a few months and we have not tested it in the population center at hyatt highest risk so i think that we're pretend to know a lot of things that we just really don't know and we can't right now because not enough time has passed. but i'm all still to come here would not say as a migrant crisis that the u.s. southern border shows no sign of letting up the media restrictions at overcrowded detention facilities only seem to be drawing more interest more that story out of the book. one else seems wrong why don't we all just don't call. me i'll
8:15 am
get to see how this thing comes to educate and in again try to equal the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart when just to look for common ground. the world is driven by a dream shaped by. the day or thinks. we dare to ask.
8:16 am
it is good to have you with us today at the world anti doping agency is looking into whether its u.k. wing is guilty of a cover up wada wants to establish why british cycling was allowed to run its own inquiry into a rider who tested positive for a banned substance this was right in the lead up to the london olympics. picks up the story. the united kingdom anti doping agency has now found itself right in the middle of what's being described and dumped as the latest scandal in british sport so it comes as these allegations have now surfaced surrounding the investigation of an abnormal drugs test all over cyclists during the london 2012
8:17 am
and limpid 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 you keen to duping to see further information well it's kind that u.k. 80 which is of course the board is responsible for policing clean sport domestically allegedly allowing 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 an out of competition test plausible explanations range from health issues one end but other ends and explanations include contaminated supplements and that's exactly what waters investigation is all about looking at how likely any of these options really are of course as a reminder under the water code it would be up to u.k. ady to conduct such a probe at the time however it's now understood that u.k. dia's for the issue can be resolved and is cooperating with water. we are working
8:18 am
with the border to investigate claims relating to private testing carried out by british cycling in 2011 u.k. anti doping agency 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 are unable to give full comment on the story of this stage is the events took place of a 10 years ago and none of the senior management team involved have worked for british cycling for some time we were reviewing such archived records that exist from this period and lou 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
8:19 am
month earlier former british cycling team doctor richard freeman was found guilty of not only ordering a banned substance but knowing and believing it was to be used to dope a ride 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 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 less than 120 days to go before the tokyo games again is really bad timing considering a great britain has always been one of the more dominant nations nations in the discipline stacking up new murderous medals of 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. the migrant buildup along
8:20 am
america's southwestern border shows no sign of easing for the media is being denied access to detention facilities so this prompted texas senator ted cruz to visit a local center for newcomers to see for himself the conditions really and when the republican try to document what he saw he was stopped by a woman who he alleges was a political operative for the biden administration. but you were hired 2 weeks ago and you're instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken years respected because the political leadership of the dia just does not want the american people to know even that they were here standing in the get in front of the pictures so you know that they were thinking the rules are arbitrary and there is i believe in the area to people i really respect them and i want to fix this situation we are going to get an iteration you want a $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
8:21 am
we have some pretty strong excuses coming from jen psaki of the 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 full access to everything once we get to see. it 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 although we might quote others using that language while the associated
8:22 am
press says it may not actually fit the dictionary definition of a crisis a recent poll taken among the u.s. public shows that 76 percent of americans believe the situation on the u.s. border is indeed a crisis the worst charge against them right now is mistreatment of these people these young people and children at the border someone claiming is jen psaki claims transparency is what you'll get and dignity and. specht 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 knee and be towed 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
8:23 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 become americans and reap the benefits of residence here this is not about that. time demick is pushing brazil's health care system to the point of collapse that's the warning from medics as the daily infection rate tops 100000 we understand daily deaths approaching the $4000.00 mark more details now with nicky aaron while much of the world uses restrictions on the scenes to try to tame the coronavirus brazil's outbreak is was that it does have a baby with almost all states in the intensive care unit near 0 at full capacity
8:24 am
but patients continuing to arrive in med droves. brazil already accounts for one quarter of the world's daily coronavirus deaths new covert 9000 cases in the country topped 100001 march 25th with the weekly death rate doubling to 15000 in just one month and with only 2 percent of the population vaccinated for figure is approaching the worst 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 runs fine some 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. and this is however just the tip of the iceberg of brazil's covidien flicked and
8:25 am
suffering unemployment is peaking and with emergency cash payments from the federal government now being cut off the result has plunged millions into poverty or is it just 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 i'm behind in my payments my car has broken down we only leave home to come here and get food no no it here is no sanitizer in the favelas not a small asks 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 is a good thing we created a group of female cooks who have been working in the store since last year we have already delivered more than 1300000 boxes here increase our police we have mobilized a network of cures so we can fight hunger in this crisis faced by the community
8:26 am
brazil is in a state of crisis and only now is. as in both n r r the man who famously branded covert 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 it's the will of a lot of us were in the grip of the new there into the coronavirus this taking the lives of many brazilians we have 2 major challenges the 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 kovac 19 kills while his nation suffers until now as a more contagious variant of the virus rampages across brazil from all skink is it too little too late or too much no subsumes but i want today we don't know where
8:27 am
brazil will end up and we can see the world looking at the country with astonishment and fear these go to this as great. as coal is growing in germany to impose another strict coronavirus lockdown the country is already struggling a struggling catering industry i should say it's certainly on tenterhooks over what the future may hold we spoke with among friends at a german burger chain owner he's just one of many business owners still struggling to stay afloat. himself would have looked soon 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 restaurants as leg we all like it's.

easy to survive 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 little bit of apply for financial assistance from november and december for 2 businesses i own which took about 130000 euro for november under 60000 full december i received 60000 euros and the 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.
8:29 am
this policy has not changed for a year of course they need to learn a new thanks otherways out 'd 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 mandate. but about our society as a whole especially about the event industry and catering establish much because they are bursting at the seams. by wrapping up to choose their top headlines here for this international that we'll soon with more hope you can join us in 31.

problem drugs don't always come from unscrupulous dealers but from pharmacies to in every state in the united states we see the very sharp increase in the number of people seeking treatment for addiction to prescription opioids oids invaded america under the banner of medicine persisted with the pain but instead of trying to wean him off though she just goes after dose after dose after dose and really became his drug dealer so who's to blame patients doctors manufacturers all the governments of .
