10:02 am
becoming homeless after an eviction moratorium expired. congress broke up the summer recess, unable to agree and extension of the band, which was meant to keep people at home and stop the spread of coven, including crucially those unable to pay rent after losing their jobs. in the pandemic reporting next from new york, he is kind of open the fries on home foreclosures and evictions that for coven expired on july 30. first, this more toward him to keep people in their homes was set in place back in september. it is not known how many people could potentially become homeless as a result of the moratorium being allowed to expire. one survey suggests the number could be 3.6 1000000. some activists gathered outside the us capital, demanding an extension. they actually turned out that property was in the property and we put up like we put a legal fight for the longest. we didn't have any worlds. so i was
10:03 am
seeing the fact that many people can't afford to live in a room and they get kicked out of their homes. is the reason why i think we have to be here. we thought for it in january, i got an extended sort again in june when i got extended and we're fighting for it again. now, just because the pandemic isn't over and you see a surge corona virus cases because of the delta. and you also are seeing that people are still not fully back to work, especially as a working class are still struggling a lot. they were joined by democratic lawmakers. i know what this like. i have been evicted before myself. i have had to sleep in my car myself, and so as a sitting congresswoman, there is no way that i could just allow congress to recess and go on vacation. and for me to, to go on with my life and not care about the 7000000 people. now the moratorium was allowed to expire and then congress went into a recess. nancy pelosi has called for joe biden to extend the more rhetoric before
10:04 am
congress reconvenes. however, the white house says there is a problem, the supreme court said it, it could only be extended which congressional authorization, that was their decision. that's how they were able to strike it down. and that's what they needed to happen. families across the for your now panicking and losing sleep summer having to choose between rent and mortgage bills and food. many are now scrambling to find a job with the prospects of soon being out on the street seeming quite imminent, honestly, for me and organize the person that understand that building power are the only thing that really transform a country and movement, especially congress to create the conditions for millions more people to be experiencing and how the other related to that life increased risk to the delta barriers hoping like increase with the physical or psychological violence. and all of the things that happened, you create the condition organized. so i think the congress is to present
10:05 am
a bigger call that way can happen. people are set up prices and we're continuing to see our efforts to demand that our government overwhelmingly actually since are vulnerable people working people for people, yet even with the democratic majority. so hard to get here, we're still having these gaps that have all lead. so of course, pay mass protest, master action. and that's because of those, those of us who are conscientious about waiting to do things and the ways that we engage them in democracy. why see, i see 2 different types of impact. one if, if the united states does face another lockdown or returning to working from home, that only works if you have a home, right? it's quite impossible to do locked down if you are on house. and so, you know, high numbers of addiction,
10:06 am
potential addiction and basically the locked down would not be, would not be ideal. secondly, when you are and how you are, you're facing so many more elements and environmental factors, not just the weather, but being in large spaces and crowded spaces, not able to pop properly, social distance. and so i fear that there could be an increase spread of the delta variance and increase cases as a result of potentially increase homelessness as the capital building should america. and the commission is now looking for answers, but there's also a tragic out that's not making many headlines for officers on duty that day. recently committed suicide families largely blame those rise oddities. dmitri power has the stories of the men who took their own lives. there are now 4 confirmed police officers who have committed suicide, who had been at the capital riots on january 6th. yesterday the metropolitan police
10:07 am
department had announced that 2 officers had taken their lives, kyle's afraid to $26.00 of 5 year veteran who was found dead around a month ago and gone through ha, should a $43.00, another police force veteran who had also killed himself in late july, leaving behind a wife and 3 children. however, these are but the latest tragic deaths of police officers who ad work the sheriff that the capital building during the riots and other 2 officers committed suicide shortly after the rise. first, it was howard leaving good 16 year veteran of the capital police force who took his life just 3 days after the event. and jeffrey smith, who shot himself on the way to work and made january. he had also dedicated over 12 years to the police force and reportedly does not have any history of mental health issues. however, he did sustain a head injury during the rise, while the family of officer hospital, the latest to commit suicide has not made any direct connection between him taking
10:08 am
his life and the events of january 6. other families have stated that the riots and their aftermath put significant mental stress on the officers who responded when my husband left for work that day. he was the jeff that i knew when he returned after experiencing the event being hit in the head. he was a completely different person. i do believe it. he didn't go to work that day. he would be here. what must not be lost and all of this is that my beloved husband died as a result of his dedication to the us capital police and the sacrifices he made to his well being on the 6th of january. and then suing days, just as surely as if he had been slain on the capitol steps, recognition of the cause of his death. much like the critical examination of the right itself will remain central to how we make right those tragedies and help avoid their repetition. obviously the colleagues and family of these officers have been devastated by all this. some of the widows of these officers have even been
10:09 am
fighting to the death of their husbands. be classified as being in the line of duty officers. how should have family has set up a crowd funding page to help support the family and organize the officers memorial . as for the official response to these debts, several lawmakers have already expressed their condolences, including nancy pelosi, who issued a statement regarding the latest officer's death officer. she was a hero who risked his life to save our capital, the congressional community, and our very democracy. now just as a reminder, the january 6th riots are still under investigation. lawmakers are to this day hearing testimonies of the people who were there during the storming of the capitol building. protesters, police officers, staff members, anybody who was there during the riot, which resulted in at least 5 deaths over a 1000 hospitalizations and hundreds of injuries among both protesters and police
10:10 am
officers. so far, the seemingly thousands of people who had stormed the building that day over 500 people have already been char for the insurrection, with some already admitting their guilt. but the situation is constantly changing, and the investigation goes on. the police in berlin, looking into cases of alleged brutality by officers during sundays protests against coven restrictions, demonstrates his claim. the police used excessive force and video shows right scalds getting heavy handed with some protest as his europe correspondent to peter oliver. while there's been a lot of videos doing the rounds since sunday showing violent clashes between police and protest as to where they are demonstrating against measures put in place to stop the spread of coven 191 video. in particular though, has drawn a lot of attention because it seems to show a police officer grabbing a woman by the neck and throwing her to the floor.
10:11 am
the this is also drawn the attention of the un wrap onto for torture. that's nills meltzer. he's put out an appeal on his social media accounts calling for anybody who witnessed this incident to come forward. he's so far not talk to anybody in the media concerning his potential involvement and what that would form that could potentially take in this particular incident. what he has said is that even touch with the german police with the german authorities, he's asking essentially for explanation from them. and then we'll see where we go. now the protests had the protest took place on sunday, had been prohibited by court order that it said that they could and would potentially spread coven 19. everybody who turn doped new they weren't supposed to
10:12 am
be there in fact, but was made abundantly clear to absolutely everybody. what we did see was some demonstrators attacking the police themselves, but it's this video of amongst many other videos, i'm a start of police violently. some would say pushing protest is back, which is drawing the attention in this particular one video of the police officers story and the woman to the floor this i think it's going to bear a lot more inspection in the future. meantime in poland, mobile cobra, the vaccination unit says, what is the local government health office was set on fire in the southeast to become drill monday night. the health minister described the as an act of terror and an attack on the state police for the security video showing the moment a man set fire to be an occupation facility. lawmakers have pledged to toughen punishment of anti facts or attacks following a series of incidents in recent weeks with anti job activists, harrassing stafford other vaccination clinics. this is our team coming up
10:13 am
a murder probes launched after a missing bela russian. i think government activist is found a hand and a park in the ukrainian capital. it's among on use still ahead after the break. ah, no. when i was shot the wrong, why don't just don't move the world to fill out the thing because the after an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves well, depart. we choose to look for common ground driven by a dreamer shaped by those in
10:14 am
me i think we dare to ask me ah, ah ah, lo again, youtube is continuing his crack down on misinformation. the google and video sharing site is banned sky news, australia for 7 days, the violating coven policies, claiming it could cause real world hom, a many a branded to move a censorship, while the channel itself claims that already questioned,
10:15 am
wearing masks and lockdown policies. donald quarter has the story. is freedom of speech under attack, that's on many australians minds after youtube slapped a one week suspension on sky news for allegedly breaching the platforms, policies on coven misinformation. i say allegedly because youtube didn't exactly specify which videos where the problem and this has led to some crying out in terror for what they see as a trampling of their freedoms. census of the sea in motion youtube sky news. this trail is suspension as a disturbing assault and freedom of thought, sky, or an actual news agency. what happen to freedom of the press? of course there was no shortage of those who thought sky news got what it deserved . murder controls up to 80 percent of us trellis prince media. the fact sky news will be suspended from youtube formation formation is only the tip of the iceberg as to how nice coff has brainwashed australians and spread valenze and hatred and
10:16 am
fake news about china. sky news, australia, unable to identify videos that lead to youtube suspension in furnace. we do pump out a lots of set of sauce part from the suspension and some deleted videos. the news outlet is also one strike. closer to a permanent ban youtube claim. some of sky news is videos denied the existence of cove at 19, and that's all we know. guy news, australia was at its youtube channel, taken down for very old post, a very old videos about cobit 19. and the time is interesting because as we know, i'll show you is now one of the most severely locked down countries on earth, youtube, and working with the australian government to center information and to take down news organizations that in the past and things that they find problematic to the current over narrative wasn't long before sky news published a response. inferring that actions like these were a slippery slope. dow shoots and that the channel had fallen victim to
10:17 am
a double standard. among the v dues deemed unpalatable for societal consumption would debates around what the mosques were effective and what the log downs were justified. when considering the adverse health outcomes and on the issue of mosques . i wonder when america's chief covert 19 advisor anthony found she will be banned from youtube. in case you forgot that was in reference to when the top us infectious diseases. experts said that people don't need to be walking around and masks right now. people should not be what there's no reason to be walking around with the mask. the country's media watchdog doesn't seem to think the situation is black and white though since the beginning of 2020. it's received 23 complaints about sky news as patent demick coverage. but get this, the australian communications and media authority has no authority over social media platforms. digital platforms such as youtube are not currently subject to the same co regulatory arrangements,
10:18 am
australia's traditional broadcast media. in this case, you tube has made it decision to the spence guy news, according to its policies for its platform. it's led many to wonder why can some corporations do whatever they want, while the government has its hands tied, you only way we get which back against big tech would be if legacy media introduce me to or the organization decided to take them on. and because the politician don't seem to have any will to do so, because obviously spends more money than any other organization lobbying in washington. it's showing more and more of a big tech is actually in control. and it might be big tech doing the bidding of a government now. but how soon is it going to be when the government is doing the bidding, a big tech, and when big tactics wants some favors and government for all of this work they're doing on their behalf. it's very, very scary stuff. i'm not sure what it's going to take or how quickly that can, that can change what is called only youtube to other social media giants are
10:19 am
getting flacco, but policing their own policies. facebook and twitter are accused of failing to take action against blatantly anti semitic posts. of the sensor for countering digital have found that more than 80 percent of anti semitic posts were not being addressed by those platforms. over $700.00 posts violating the sites own policies, but any $100.00 were actually removed. and those posed to be seen by more than 7000000 people around the globe. the major social media sites all accused of not taking enough action against anti semitism or indeed other content that's considered to be a speech. instagram owned by facebook has kept up almost all posts. accused of racism from this is you repeat football championship? final. will facebook only added a disclaimer to one of the most viral posts denying the holocaust? twitter is a fault for getting rid of just a small fraction of tweets that claim the holocaust was a hoax. but the social networks claim that their policies on his feet are robust
10:20 am
and that they've greatly improved in recent years. i've certainly been cracking down hard on anti vaccination groups, deleting the accounts of individuals thought to be responsible for 2 thirds of all anti back some information. so that's left some questioning why so little appears to be done about anti semitism. we discussed last week journalist chadwick mall. it seems suspicious that may the anti semitism seems to be the one thing you can get away with an american society. and i'm not sure if that's just because of this, extreme israel hatred that exists on the left or, or, or what it could be. so it definitely wouldn't surprise me at that report is accurate. and you do see actually a lot of anti semitism on social media platforms. you certainly don't see a lot of fears. again, you know, black people or things like that that doesn't get immediately removed. and it's another example of these arbitrary rules that raises suspicions, that there is a political motive here. and that, you know,
10:21 am
some groups are more equal than others to you than orwellian term. and even when you have crimes against jewish people, hate crimes rising, you still see this content for committee on social media sites. it certainly doesn't look good for them. it would be very bold if they were intentionally turning imply and died for this kind of content. and also very sick and sinister british newspapers reveal that the u. k. state health service had sketched a plan to deny kat elderly people in the event of a severe pandemic. it was never implemented, but elements of it seemed to be ringing through to this day for one campaign that we've been speaking to. she told us that it's unacceptable that they get a chest still has to prioritize who should and who should not receive treatment. i think failed because they basically anyone that they were made certainly retirement age seems to be not where they are being looked after. so to me it just looks like they were looking after the ones that were going to make money.
10:22 am
and the ones that have already made the money going to cost the money going to be thrown aside like they have them with a can home, you know, pull families of their loved ones and care home. they sent those for like a lot by just knowing them, he knew what was going on, or that i've been a complete waste of time because a still prioritizing who should been, who shows should not receive and good life is dreadful. the 2017 draft plan was to ensure the house service could cope with overwhelming numbers in the event of a crisis. and it would have been prioritized for patients with a better chance of survival that was drafted after huge irregularities were found in britain's response systems. but the chassis stated that the plan did not form the basis of that later response to the current corona virus pandemic. the n h. s was asked to produce this discussion document based on the specific and extreme
10:23 am
hypothetical scenario to inform the governments pandemic flu preparedness program rather than for racial use. and that did not form the basis of the n h. s. response to the corona virus. the covert outbreak had care homes hard with 42000 of their residence in england and wales having died since the outbreak began. one former senior adviser to the prime minister's openly acknowledged the government's failure in shielding those facilities. we were told to go really much that people will be tested before they went back to terms. we only subsequently found out that that hadn't happened. now all the government rectory was, we put a shield around carol was involved law complete nonsense. put the opposite, putting. she'll round the recent people will go back to the camps. i think the homes are always been on the radio, the goldman and everything was with the chest always when, after all, i know the people are said they can home later and without serious
10:24 am
struggles. we still, we still are testing colby policy people from your scout or hospital because this virus hasn't gone faithfully, there was still very cold. i think some of it was telling the truth, i think it was on television homes were being tested, the residents will be tested private home in our initial, at the time. and that's a lot of the reason why i called a whole lot ahead of the so called a bella, russian house in ukraine has been found dead in kiev, italy show of helps fellow bella russians who fled the country during the recent unrest. the so what we know so far is that the tele, she shot the head of bell russian house in ukraine and organization helping bell
10:25 am
russians. li abroad when missing on monday in kiev, after setting out for a daily jog, is friends and colleagues, sounded the alarm and started the search operation along with local police. his body was found hanged in a part in the ukrainian capital. it is not clear whether this was a murder or a suicide attempt, and an investigation has been launched, but the ukraine police has already stated that they prioritize murder as they are leading due to the version. others security camera photo showing him leaving his home on monday morning around 9 pm and police are now trying to piece together his movements. after that, adults reported that his phone was turned off and it was impossible to tracy that way. italy shop was one of the founders of the organization called by the russian house. and ukraine has been an opposition activist for quite a while. he reportedly moved to neighboring ukraine in 2020 during mass protests
10:26 am
that came on the back of presidential elections. and ballers the position claim that's a voting that saw encumbrance by the russian leader, alexander lucas. shank, when the election by landslide was rigged. something that alexander lucas shall go and he's analyzed strongly denied. as i already said. the ukrainian police have launched an investigation into the case has been reported that they consider a number of theories including that it was the murder. as i said, disguised as a suicide attempt qualifies, continue to rage in parts of southern europe amended unusually hot and dry. cellar croatia is the latest country to be effected. firefighting plains have been dumping water to extinguish the blazes. creation authorities are saying that they have now managed to bring the situation under control elsewhere along the mediterranean coast. the aftermath of wildfires in italy has become clear as far as a voice and concerns over that livelihoods. in the wake of the disaster. the government says that it intends to send special teams to assist locals and
10:27 am
devastation in the west of turkey, too. as those flames continue to engulf woodland and the popular tourist destination of mama's blazes. they have already claimed the lives of 8 people, and there's no sign of the situation easing off anytime soon. a buttons now in place on people entering forrest in many of these provinces, former british ambassador turned blogger has handed himself into police in scotland to serve an 8 month prison sentence for contempt of court. craig murray arrived with family and supporters and a bottle of champagne. nothing but him to celebrate though, was pro free speech group pointed out scottish pan express his grave concern over the imprisonment of craig murray and calls for his release. the writer is the 1st person to be imprisoned in scotland for media contempt for over 70 years. we fear this ruling will have a chilling effect on reporting and free expression. murray was convicted over details published in his blog during the sexual misconduct fraud of former scottish
10:28 am
1st minister alex salmon in which the identity of women alleged to be victims. risk being revealed and summoned was acquitted of all 13 charges, but strict laws of the u. k. allow and lead sexual assault victims to remain anonymous even so journalists fear that murray's imprisonment now sets of worry and precedent. reporters without borders r s f. considered the prison sentence. disproportionate and the journalist must ensure that he had the court orders with regard to witness protection. imprisonment in connection with any journalistic activity should only ever be a measure of absolute last resort. if it's all a murray, supporters of compared his case to that of julian san, choose us expedition proceedings with authority covered by the diplomat turn laga. we spoke with a former scottish justice secretary as well as with a couple of the nature of the craig murray. justice campaign, they both see murray's punishment is substantially unfair. i would agree that this case has a chilling effect on journalism in this country,
10:29 am
specifically in scotland. scott's law and u. k. law differ quite significantly in many ways, but especially in scotland. we've seen that there in that in the last few years, that's been an increase in crackdown on democracy on transparency on what can and can't be reported. and this, this judgement is a very clear sign that there is an effort to put fear into the heart of journalists and public commentators reporting what can be reported by mainstream media. well, it's called but i think this is doug b for bloggers is a dark day for the scottish traditional system. take a moment, things have gone wrong. first of all, the judges recently seemed to be mr. murray. i should be treated differently from the mainstream media. now i think that are several arguments to be made against stock. firstly, the most flagrant breaches, old personal liberty of tennessee,
10:30 am
of beaches, of contempt of court of come from the mainstream media. so this idea that if you are in the mainstream media, you are somehow absolutely christine and panic. but if you're a blogger, or somebody who's not in the mainstream media, then you are a danger. has no substance or credibility as things come which time. cuz that's how it looks so far from moscow. this tuesday, august, the 3rd i'm calling bray back here with the next update. after we've checked in with scotty now he's in washington. the what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic development only personally i'm going to.
