9:02 am
the british royal to seem to represent canada as colonial passed. red paint was dogged over the fallen statue of queen victoria. the british prime minister spokesperson condemned any de facing of statues of the queen. i'll teach alex mahonnan looks back of what led to the latest anger. discovery after discovery, the latest one was on one's day 182 bodies founded cranbrook british columbia. this is close to a residential school. they use basically a radar that looks underground. and that's where they found these people in unmarked graves that adds to the initial finding, which happened on may 27th. and we can loops british columbia at another residential school of 215 people as young as 3 years old in mon, mark grace, and then of course, the scotch one, which was the biggest find so far, 751 people. so you add all these numbers up over a 1000 people found, but we have over 130 schools like this across canada. ah,
9:03 am
you learn not trying. you just get harder. and yeah, you learn to shut down every day was you were in constant fear that your hope was that it wasn't you today that was going to be the target, the victim. the program started in the late 18 hundreds and laughed at all the way up to 1996. when the last school was close, that 150000 native children ripped out of their families, arms and put into the schools. they were forced to go to the schools, the royal canadian mounted police were complicit in that they were the ones that would take the children from their families to the schools that were run primarily by the catholic church at about 60 percent, but also anglican and protest and other smaller churches across the country, the levels of abuse that we found at these schools was absolutely mind blowing. i just have to read something for you quickly. this is at 900. oh, $7.00 report for the department of indian affairs is called the bryce report,
9:04 am
documented 40 to 60 percent mortality rate in the schools mostly of tuberculosis and then a 90 to 100 percent of these children. this is unbelievable, suffered either from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. we will have rates of 80 percent abuse on these 1st nations because of this legacy left behind by these churches at the canadian government, which funded all of these programs. so canadians are demanding that the government do something about this. we did have a back in 2015 a commission that said that this was a cultural genocide. they did very little about it up to now. now people are demanding the prime minister. do something about it and the prime minister, as well as indigenous communities, are demanding an apology from the catholic church. i really hope that this time it will lead towards this hope coming onto the canadian soil and apologizing apologizing directly for the responsibility that the catholic church shares in this
9:05 am
part of our history now. and what is believed to be a reaction to what has happened in the past month or so is the churches are being burned down on need of communities and close to residential schools. we've heard of 5 in british columbia to and berta at one all the way at the other side of the country. it nova scotia. ah, ah, the prime minister has said that destroying places of worship is not the way to go, obviously. but at the same time, canadians are looking at the situation in a much broader perspective. hopefully candidate will do more. and that's exactly what canadians are demanding. at this point, a police say the church fi, as mentioned by alex, that could be awesome. and related to the discovery of the great canadian prime
9:06 am
minister called the alleged attacks, unacceptable and wrong during the week. we've been hearing from indigenous community leaders about the gruesome discoveries of the children's remains. it was a genocide and you look at the whole point of the residential school was to take the indian out of the indian to get rid of our language, get rid of our culture and children died. every 1st nation person is feeling the impact of the residential schools. my grandmother attended my grandfather attended thankfully, my mother didn't have to attend, but she still feels the impacts on it on a daily basis. it is a developed country. it is a one, you know, a g 7 countries, but internally, canada, it's, we're at a point where we're reflecting internally, the grave sites are the conversation, but the impact of colonization,
9:07 am
of ripping apart families. and today we are seeing the aftermath of that. it brings out anger in some it brings out frustration moving forward. what we have to do is the truth and reconciliation call. the can't to action. we implement those. we will be a way more developed country within one generation. there are some tough days ahead of us, but the end goal is to co exist as, as we should have at the beginning. it should have been a big weekend for julian assault. hundreds of his supporters gathered in london in new york um saturday to celebrate his 50th birthday. but it's the 3rd birthday that we can expound his friends in a british jail cell. washington is still seeking his expedition to the u. s. where if found guilty, he could be sentenced to up to a 175 years. been while the witness in the u. s. case against him has reportedly admitted to giving false testimony. speaking to an icelandic newspaper and he said
9:08 am
the wiki leaks found the never asked him to hack any computers. phones is potentially a major blow for washington. with some seeing the mission is fatal to americans case against the songs among them. fellow whistleblower. edward snowden. this is the end of the case against julian assad. if biden continues to seek the extradition of a publisher under an indictment poison top to bottom, with false testimony admitted by its own star, witness the damage to the united states, reputation and press freedom would last for a generation. it's unavoidable for the better part of a decade. the united states and its allies wanted sonjee. they came up with allegations and grand juries and smear campaigns to get to him. we knew that what we didn't know is how many of america's charges against the sods charges that could lambda signs in jail for a 175 years. a reportedly made up the main witness, then the charges against assigned to the extra decent request father,
9:09 am
the u. k. gave an interview to stand it and i standing publication. his name is siegel do in the for different and he apparently is a piece of work charges were piling up against alderson with the i sunday. call, thirties for massey fraud forgeries and theft on the one hand and for sexual violations against under age boys. he had tricks or forced into sexual act from the other during his time as a volunteer wiki legs way lied and claimed to be almost none, but 2 after a sons. he said to rob them of $50000.00 and donated funds and still hard drives packed with documents. when we started asking questions, guess who he cooled thought and saw a way out on august the 23rd. he sent an email to the u. s. embassy in iceland offering information. the prosecutors and f. b i were quick in responding and within 48 hours, a private jets landed in reykjavik with around 8th agents,
9:10 am
who quickly sets up meetings with thought us and thought he was willing to say anything. he lied to them, he now says about at san asking him to break into government systems. he admits the lying about that, but that is all ready in the charges against the savage. right now this activity was said include attempts to hug into the computers of members of parliament, recalled that conversations, in fact, thought us. and now mr. stone, did that the sons never asked him to hack or access phone recordings of him peace. moreover, the british judge reviewing the extradition request agreed with the charges charges many of which are now said to belies, such as when thought this and claimed that he accessed a police vehicle big to base legitimately, while working as a volunteer for rescue services and blamed it on all sides, more deceptive language emerges in the afa mentioned judgments where it states a songs use the unauthorized access given him by a source. so access the government websites of iceland used to track police
9:11 am
vehicles. there was more much more about stolen band fall than hacking, one of which was twisted by food isn't. and the f b i who must have known how unreliable he was. but what, what would you do for immunity? i yes, the f b i offered for the son, immunity from prosecution for all the things that they knew he did. furthermore, the f b, i told him it wouldn't share anything with the police. you think he learned his lesson? is this the offer of immunity, had encouraged thoughts and to take boldest steps in crime. he started to fleece individuals and companies on a grander scale than ever forgery. bo kraft, vice shell companies, and much, much more. this is the main weakness than the prosecution and persecution of julian assad. this is the best that they could do. i verified these interview will be a serious blow if not the dennis of the case against the sarge. the case that has
9:12 am
riled rights and press activists for years, in case that may well criminalize journalism, as we know it, and the case that will ma america for years to come. when a few hours ago, we spoke to a friend of julian, a songs who get in refuge back in 2010 british. charlotte born smith says the charges against the wiki leaks found for journalism on the wrong side of the law. he's got some serious health issues which should have been getting worse and worse and worse psychologically. he's under extraordinary stress as you can well imagine . he's had one of the most horrible lockdown that i think anybody we could possibly think of had, you know, mostly in solitary confinement about 23 out of the day. he's got very poor communications. they went in public communicate downside, well, it's very hard for him to defend it. so you think it's absolutely devastating to the case again i, you know,
9:13 am
it also completely undermines america's case. but one has to observe that this was brought up under the previous administration. must be the current administration on the biden, bearing in mind the previous administration on the obama, so not to follow this procedure against junior psalms because they were aware of the impact he was going to have on journalists. these charges criminalized basic dental practices, which is why it's so surprising that the british american media don't change, we're making much of what's happening with philadelphia and these are devastating. he is basically said he's explaining how he law to frame julian to try and fade his. he then skin, mainstream media, who spent a lot of time writing negatively about you haven't really picked up on this for adults and story and you know, on shots about,
9:14 am
i feel like it's there obliged to talk about the absolutely central to so that their own ability to report some of the headline news this sunday, a military transport plane has crashed in the philippines. 31 people are confirmed dead and 50 injured of the more than 900 people on board. the plane came down while transporting troops between islands. it appears to have missed the runway before crushing their village. military spokesman says the incident is not believe to have been caused by a terrorist attack. the countries also reading from a volcanic eruption that's driven thousands from their homes, about 70 kilometers south of the capital. manila toxic gases have been spilling from the site for days. evacuation of more residents in the surrounding area is being planned. england football fans is celebrating off that teams fresh ukraine for nail in the european championship quarter finals. 2 officers were reported injured as scuffles broke out in london. the mass gatherings have supported
9:15 am
a rating worries with authorities that it could make the coven situation worse. and the government says, restrictions may remain as the more dangerous delta strain spreads. thoughts in a weekly formality international. still to come, we're going to hit the streets of moscow to see if establishment enforcing the new coven passes in the capital required to access public space is a bit of troubling spiking infections here. it's all next story in 90 seconds. the so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, a very critical time. time to sit down and talk
9:16 am
the and now we're in an area where we're trying to save the planet. we want to be able to use energy and have better life, but also to live on a healthy planet. and the challenge of energy is the emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that we're trying to manage. and there's many different ways of doing that. transmissions have begun in transition, and it's proceeding along many different pathways. ah, the ah, hello again. moscow launched
9:17 am
a major re vaccination campaign in the week with that highly contagious delta strain of covey, dominating due infections here. those jobs were initially meant to be yearly, but given the current intensity of the pandemic doctors and now inviting a fresh shot every 6 months, most goes mass says both sputnik v and it's like buried all suitable for the job. a capitals, a boost, a job drive comes as delta strain infections jump nationwide. the country's case load more than doubled over the course of june and peaks 25000 infections by this sunday morning. of those, the moscow registered more than 7 and a half a 1000 new cases out, the rice has prompted the city to introduce a mandatory coven pass for to grant access for people to get into public spaces. let's take a look at how that works to qualify. you need to either be fully vaccinated with both jobs. you need to have antibodies and recovering from an infection or take a p. c r test. have it negative and it's going to be noble and 3 days old. naughty to constantine bosco for his q r code to the test for us. this is my q
9:18 am
r code. something party goers now can't live without moscow since this has become one of the only way to get into a restaurant or bar here. so i decided to investigate how the system works and whether it actually does it all. so let's now go to a couple of places here together. we started off with one of the most popular place in my neighborhood. it usually has lots of customers all day long. i also brought my son along. he hasn't been vaccinated and he hasn't had cobra. so he doesn't have a q r code. so we're going to be, this is going to be a problem. there was a line outside find out what's going on. so i think i got a little bit of work in new york. what hold on for them?
9:19 am
well, it turned out my local fast food restaurant was serving, take away orders only knowing door dining was allowed regardless of vaccination status. when you go, when you have a value for your, for them, and you said a berkeley, not every restaurant in moscow was able to organize q r code scanning in time. anyway, there was another place across the street. we decided to check our, our more for them this time the staff did have the necessary equipment, which is just a regular smartphone by the way. but there's something weird happened. mike, you are code didn't work. the i had to go to a government website, download the q r code again, and it finally worked. but then something else came up. in moscow, you need to show your vaccination certificate along with an id. i had a password,
9:20 am
me, but my wife had only a drivers license, even though have an a passport is not a rule. we were denied indoors service. they only let us sit outside on a terrace. bottom line is that we were denied to dining at the 2nd place this morning. so i'm going to keep looking for the right spot. and finally, we managed to get through the at this turkish restaurant. everything went on without a hitch. they also let our 8 year old unvaccinated kid in as we were told. young children are allowed inside if their parents have valid q r codes fishery inside a coal. that free zone. i can get rid of the mask. yes. once you're inside your back to the free coven era, no masks or social distance are required. as you can see,
9:21 am
it's pretty deserted. i think that we are the only customers at the moment. i don't, there are 2 more people out there. but otherwise it's pretty empty. for vaccinated customers, the immediate benefits are quite obvious. now there are always plenty of tables available and you can enjoy winters this undivided attention for reference owners though things might not look as google stood the system was the fact that this system has been introduced across moscow. so people accept it, become prepared and even say that they have a cure code trade away. but at the same time it's summer now, and they still prefer to relax on the veranda. the fact that we have some are veranda helps of course, guest without cure codes, concede there, but it's too early to talk about how many customers we've lost because of this policy. we have to wait and see what it shows up on the. so this is apparently something both citizens and restaurants will have to become used to at least cove.
9:22 am
it is still raging. and even though a couple of months ago, people were extremely skeptical about getting the job. in the past couple of weeks, moscow authorities received more than 80000 vaccination request a de fuel the hopes that one day moscow will eventually escape from cove its loss. custody raska r t from moscow. ok. and what it might mean, imposing new demands on businesses. moscow city chiefs also planning to reward people who stick to the rules. restaurants following q r code policy will get rebates, all neg, utility bills, and the 1st 100 businesses to have 60 percent the best are fully vaccinated, but also get some money from the government. the big picture though, the delta strain is now spread to about a 100 countries in france that accounts for 20 percent of new cases. whereas in britain, it's almost a 100 percent. we spoke to the world health organization, special envoy kind of bit about how best to manage the risk of the virus. right now
9:23 am
. we can be 100 percent, certain vaccines that we have at the moment will protect us against all possible versions of this virus. so therefore, we should be accepting that vaccines will reduce our risk of getting coven, quite honestly, actually box. they're not going to guarantee. and therefore, what we're saying is huge vaccines as part of your control effort. but also, why not just keep going with the physical distancing the one me to row? why not keep going with ma squaring? why not keep going with really good hygiene? why not keep going with isolation when you're sick? why not keep going with protecting elderly people and those who got other diseases, paternity with the back scenes, because they are really good protected. if there is the
9:24 am
perception conveyed to the population of any country, that basically we're all going to say we're going to break the 3 break free and we're not going to be troubled by the virus. and there's no turning back. it's a bit of a hostage to, for, to just suppose this far as takes advantage of the freedom day and really spreads an awful lot and you end up with a situation of a lot of sickness and considerable debt plus distress. and if somebody is running a hotel or running an airline, no running an airport or running a festival, if day, you can have quick tests at the entrance and then quick daily, checkups will test again for participants go, it would make such a difference. so yes, i'm super keen on frequent, reliable, inexpensive tax. it just to them talks any of that. saudi grand and it doesn't
9:25 am
exist. i. it's the 4th of july, which means it's a happy independence day to our american friends, the white house that has even more reason to celebrate by tweeting just how much for government helping families save on this year's barbecues. planning a cook out this year, catch up on the news. according to the farm bureau, the cost of a 4th of july barbecue is down from last year. it's a fact. you must heard hot dog. the biden economic plan is working. and not something we can all relish. look what i got from the grocery store with the $0.16 i saved. thanks biden. wow, what will we peasants do with that big 16 samson savings the possibility of their endless. when would $0.16 have been significant savings? $823.00. well, hold. the prices may be down, but inflation is driven us gasoline prices up by
9:26 am
a dollar said last year. electricity and food prices are on the up as well, with inflation at its highest since 2008 white house press secretary gen saki, though things people need to focus on. the 3000000 jumps created on the president biden. have think $0.16 off the barbecue has more of an impact on people's lives than gas being a dollar more this time i would say, if you don't like hotdogs, you may not care of the reduction of cars. you don't have to look up your file, but for a reduction i will say that what we're most focus on is the fact that we've created now more than 3000000 jobs since the president took office k thoughts on this next then live to new york on political analysts and campaign dakota, lily, welcome to the program. happy independence day. first of all, what are you going to be doing with the white house winful? well, i'm not sure, considering $0.16 i is so astronomical to the working class. you know, you really would be surprised that kind of is at this point, considering how,
9:27 am
you know, it's been over 15 years since the minimum wage was increased inflation in all the more you know, you talk about like the increase in tricity already increase in gasoline and things like that, but that pales in comparison to the increase in the case in the costs of child care, education. rans, things that really really happens squeezing the middle and working classes for really, really long. so i'm not sure what i'll do my $0.16, but i'm sure it'll be in consequential in terms of the political marketing on this . then given that even the most ardent bite and supporting household, you got to be watching that dollars with gas prices getting up electricity. you know, there's things that you've outlined. so how much of a misfire is this p r wise for the white house? well, i think it kind of goes to show just how out of touch people are, you know, if it was a democrat or republican, you know, i don't think either of them would be more in touch with the way people need to
9:28 am
balance their books and things like that, you know, trump visibility and air biden, i'm sure has millions of dollars and there hasn't really been a president in a very, very long time that has taken be taken to consideration the effects of their policy is on the workers. and i think that's the most important thing to take away from this place. they really think that $0.16 is amazing, and we're going to go out to the streets and, you know, show our love for president biden over $0.16. it's insulting and this isn't something new, i guess is my point that i think it's very blatant just how out of touch they are now with this p. r failure, i suppose reading about 7 months in no way. are there any green shoots from biden's economic plan? yet, well, you know, in his speech before congress,
9:29 am
there were some things that i think he mentioned that were quite popular with the american people. however, i don't think they have any chance of actually coming to fruition the american jobs act. you know, i think there are some good things that are in there that are lacking in this country that i think other countries have had for a long time, switches expanding universal childcare and daycare, which i think would alleviate a burden on most of the country at this point so expensive at this point and people, people's wages have been frozen or stagnant, or even regressed for so long. but there's not much to do, you know, the word proposals in the senate to include in a bell and the coping relief bill to increase the minimum wage to $15.00 within the next 5 or 6 years. you know, people can't wait that long people have had the same $7.25 cent minimum wage. since 2005 it's, it's,
9:30 am
and people have been making do. but as you look at credit card debt, student loan debt and all these are things they've been exploding before then and after that, and trillions of dollars in the status. so i haven't seen much effort on the, by an administration to pursue any sort of economic policy that i think will have any bearing right now would be a fabulous time for federal jobs guarantee. universal job guarantees. we have unemployment numbers, they talk about the 3000000 jobs that they've created, but how long has under employment and people who are working part time that want to work full time. you know, there's real unemployment numbers are much higher there at least in the double digits. and even at the same time, does it really matter if the $3000000.00 jobs are created? if they're all created at mcdonald's, wendy's target and walmart, not really. people want gainful employment. and the federal government could provide that. but they chosen not to bite and said that the last time the economy
9:31 am
grew, this foss was in 1984 under present.
