his drug dealer so who's to blame patients doctors manufacturers all the governments of. the headlines. the british warns his community can't be held responsible for the actions of some individuals if muslims on treated with more respect. showed his class cartoons of the prophet mohammed so i guess if you. throw. into such things the law me here is that it teaches us how to get some fine day with police protection. and other cultural debate is raging in france where a politician is under fire for insisting whites should have no say in discussions about racism. and the french pharmaceutical giant is found guilty of involuntary manslaughter
9:01 am
a loss drug that's believed to have caused hundreds of deaths. just off the 4 pm on tuesday here in moscow this is our international thank you for sharing your time with us. in the u.k. is warning the prime minister that trouble is brewing if more respect isn't shown to muslims ultimately insinuating that the country could go the way of frauds its author a teacher in northern england left parts of the community outraged by showing cartoons of the prophet mohammed to his class. 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 that he condemns any assertions that
9:02 am
promote violence the teacher who sparked the outrage showed the prophet mohammad caricature as during a class debate on blasphemy you know his family are now in hiding after receiving death threats he's apologized he's also been suspended some local muslims are demanding that he be fired however a petition calling on the school to reinstate him has so far gone that over 65000 signatures on the u.k. department of education is standing up and defending the teacher it is never acceptable to threaten the intimidate 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 including where they are challenging a controversial subject they obligations to ensure political balance outrage over a similar case in france last october of course that led to the brutal murder of samuel party a history teacher to paris he was beheaded by
9:03 am
a terrorist after showing cartoons of the prophet mohammed to his pupils. one of our competitors was murdered because he taught our compassion it was the victim of an islamist terror attack. we spoke with from christian concern and no one saw a political and social commentator who ultimately locked horns over the issues. this could be very easily turning into some kind of a power keg and you do not throw that matches into such things we've seen in france and in many european countries the rise of the far right we've seen
9:04 am
some to tears civil rights system pushing against islam pushing against muslims marginalizing them and it's open season on muslims courage attack them on free speech places 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 that 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 and 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 had this discussion a few times every time we've had this discussion on free speech and debate we have
9:05 am
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 it alright 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 and what's happening here is people are trying to shut down discussion and using threats of pants when people 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 he ok to be poked fun at and be racist against muslims out of their loved ones read 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
9:06 am
raise 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 or there's another cultural debate raging across the english channel it's where a french left wing politician is under fire for saying white people should stay out of discussions on racism critics say their remarks are yet another sign of how us style woke culture is undermining european and french values is our correspondent china to escape. the empty white 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 he says it exists it exists this reunions exist no. reason member of the paris local authority and
9:07 am
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 universalist french rallies a form of personal culture in my region no resident should be discriminated against for the call of the 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 knowing is.
9:08 am
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 old reprove us remarks gain support from some on the left including from the leader of france and buyout 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 the debate and they say it's not racist you know well it's an absolute horror i don't know how people can lead you to my such nonsense we should dismantle this racist remarks from scratch. for me it's not acceptable to screwed white people for meetings i view that as racist. and offensive as with i think it's
9:09 am
perfectly legitimate to exclude white people from the meetings because it was a felicitous i'm france has always been a country which respects human rights and does not look primarily at the color of people's skin. just because 70 about in the numbers are oh no it's personally concerned about racism but i think it exists see you know i mean if you dress if it's with the other way around if the national party or right wing m.p. said that black or arabic people should be quiet during an event dedicated to the victims of terrorism that's also cause public outrage the entire political class all the media would just be fired leave rail against this person and condemn him because it's racist france only sees 3 colors blue white 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 racist and should be universally condemned there can be no double standards here racism is
9:10 am
universal unfortunately there are various forms of racism and hatred and we are faced with this everywhere. i've referred to fraud and involuntary manslaughter that's what french pharmaceutical giant servia has been found guilty of and one of the country's worst ever health scandals the case revolves around the diabetes and weight loss drug mediator which is believed to of course at least 500 deaths due to heart problems the pill has actually been on the market for 33 years and used by 5000000 and 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 wear 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
9:11 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 the french medicines watchdog has been fined for delaying the hold of drug sales the agency acknowledged it was partially responsible for the scandal and it comes amid concerns of pharmaceutical companies allegedly lobbying government bodies also a viewer 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 deliberately withheld vital information from patients at the bar before hogan it 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 a pharmaceutical company with a good reputation which secretly released a strong poison on the market and was selling it for more than
9:12 am
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 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. canada 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 simply too high to give the job to under 50 five's. there is substantial uncertainty about the benefit of providing astra zeneca $1000.00 vaccine to adults under 55 years of age given that the potential risks associated with v.i.p.'s
9:13 am
coursing particularly at the low estimated rates it was only just last week the country's drug watchdog said the job was safe and safe to use and recommend that people get it as soon as possible it did however update the label on the vaccine to warn of the risk of blood clots and the move comes following recent data from europe or 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 but earlier we did speak to an american doctor about the potential risks of new coronavirus vaccines 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 that acts in a tears everybody is
9:14 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 hiatt highest risk so i think we're pretending 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. still to come here on the program. shows. the media. attention. seems to be increasing.
9:15 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. skeery dramatic developments.
9:16 am
i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. you see it. in tom. good to have you with us today 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 in the run 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 app and normal drugs test all over cyclists during the london 2012 and then
9:17 am
picked 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 departments to look into this matter and to contact u.k. and to doping to see further information well it's claimed 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 on usual amount of nandrolone which is a banned steroids in and out of competition tests plausible explanations range from health issues at one end but other ends and explanations include contaminated supplements and that's exactly what waters investigate. it's 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 you k. a d. to conduct such a probe at the time however it's now understood that you katie is full the issue
9:18 am
can be resolved and is cooperating with wada. we are working 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 said 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.d.f. so now is saying it's reviewing all of its processes but of course given the length of time between 2012 an hour 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 over 10 years ago and none of the senior management team involved have worked to 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
9:19 am
parties well this is the 2nd scandal to sweep the nation for british cyclists this month earlier a 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 it's 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 are 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
9:20 am
de france. 20 past or in moscow the migrant. buildup along america's southwestern border shows no sign of easing for the media is being denied access to various detention facilities and this prompted the texas senator ted cruz to visit a local center for newcomers to see for himself just how bad the conditions really are but when the republican tried to document what he saw he was stopped by a woman who cruz alleges is a political operative working for the biden administration. but 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 at the it just does not want the american people to know even that they were here standing in the in front of the pictures so you know that they were thinking the rules are arbitrary and there's i believe again 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
9:21 am
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 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'll have access to everything once we get the signal 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
9:22 am
as a crisis on our own although we may quote others using that language while the associated 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 us 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 big toe 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
9:23 am
them across to infect ordinary americans who are not as yet completely vaccinated 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. so austria is now in talks with russia to buy $1000000.00 doses of the sputnik very covert vaccine the chance of us about getting cuts and i was the plans which would make australia at least a 3rd a new country to purchase the job also you saw skilled taylor now joining us here live in the studio here good to see you today saskia i understand the european medicines agency still hasn't actually approved the sputnik freed job but i guess
9:24 am
in one way or another that's not stopping vienna not as the vaccine rolled out continues to descend into chaos appetite for the sputnik the job continues to grow we've just heard straight from the austrian chants that the potus of $1000000.00 says is on the cards now this news comes just a few weeks off to the chancellor i had a telephone conversation with president putin and it seems that the dollar has a new continued since that and that a deal might be agreed soon which is something that's boston cuts that will finally set people free. if austria receives an additional $1000000.00 doses of the vaccine a return to normal life is possible earlier and we could save many lives and jobs there should be no jip political barriers with vaccines what matters is whether the vaccine is effective and safe not where it came from. so these potential $1000000.00 doses would come in 3 phases starting with the fast in april the final delivery in june and if this deal goes ahead as you said oster would become the
9:25 am
thought e.u. country to approve sputnik the following in the footsteps of hungry and in fact now clearly 3 countries was so frustrated with the blocks slow production the alleged inequality in its vaccine distribution that they decided that they have to look elsewhere for help and they have to go against brussels against brussels in the sense that of course he has not yet been approved by the e.u. key approval process is on the way and while technically individual member states can independently approve such an shots say use brussels has made it clear if you do that you're on your own we've been doing over the past few weeks now i had some m.p.'s in here from germany recently and they were quite outwardly saying that they're splitting views being politicized and you've got you've got politicians trying to play doctor and it's all getting a little bit messy out there but you were mentioning the other e.u. countries that are getting on the sputnik the bandwagon brussels not so certain about all of a sudden remember italy is one of them is going to start actually manufacturing
9:26 am
their own version of sport in that vein and not just it's silly in the south of france the mayor of nice told local john this that he's reached out to the producers of sputnik the call to central put in an order he did say that he will not be administering the vaccine until it gets the green light by the may which he anticipates in the summer and he waved away any misgivings about the job he said look guys this is a job that's registered in dozens of countries worldwide the distribution production of ministration is going credibly well case in point as i mentioned earlier slovakia though it is worth mentioning that whilst the actual vaccine is going well that have been politically a couple of bumps the health minister such a push to resign under criticism and the prime minister had to be very blunt in defending his decision. the sputnik vaccine will not go back to russia it will save lives in slovakia i would never give it up our country is a fundamental part of the european union but i cannot turn down
9:27 am
a quality vaccine that will save our people because it's made in russia i'm not a murderer so we'll have to see whether the austrian chancellor is forced to speak out as strongly about this and defend his decision but looking at all of this you really have to think the e.u. is all about unity and about being centralized what's failing to be united it's failing to meet the vaccine to mont but at the same time it's refusing to accept alternatives or help in appears to be sort of semi threatening those who decide to take matters into their own hands and protect the health of the citizens so it's not a good look for the e.u. and you have to ask a union that puts politics of a public health while really is not a union of auntie's skilled taylor thank you. just getting some news in right now here at the main studios of r.t. international we understand germany has suspended the astra zeneca vaccine for use on people under the age of 60 new reports of unusual blood in 31 people who
9:28 am
recently received the shots it's not the 1st we're hearing about issues with astra zeneca here in r.t. international of course we will keep you posted your program returns in 31 minutes . i guess the block clock is really the emerging truth you know time magazine call it the truth machine and it's showing the truth about american politicians that they're full of hot air they have nothing to say they still everyone's money they collect taxes they spend about themselves they try to vest out of fashion and they kill people overseas in the name before. is your media a reflection of reality. in
9:29 am
a world transformed. what will make you feel safe from. the isolation or community. are you going the right way or are you being led. by a. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or remain in the shallows. an entire village in alaska has had to move if another country run the wife of an american. we do everything in our power to protect. wanted me to skipping climate change is the same threat right now alaska seems some of the fastest
9:30 am
coastal erosion in the world we lost about 35 feet. 35 feet of ground in just about. 3 months while we were measuring. he is fast and that means the river is 35 closer than how long that was for i think we're part of the 1st for murmur. this is boom bust the one business show you can't afford to miss i'm french born in washington coming up the suez canal stop it saga has.
