3:02 am
on sunday, thousands of people came out to protest against belgium. government covert measures in brussels. and they're particularly unhappy with the push that's being put forward by the belgian government to encourage people to come forward for vaccinations. what they've said is that there's a, a 3 month window for health care workers to get jobs between january and march of next year. otherwise, they faced losing their jobs. people up the protest in belgium said they're really not happy with some of these measures that have been put in place. you'd have newman's mystique, but we were checked the society in which we live today. the one we're offered, it's not necessarily a question of vaccination or not the polarized debates. our goal is to say, we don't want to, society looks at the article we're here because our freedom is under threat and we want to restore it after it has been lost for 2 years. the point was i can't go by
3:03 am
all and i fight for the freedom of the future generation. i'm ready to take to the street and lose everything to let them have their freedom, which is a fundamental right, wasn't, or this is fall from an issue just in belgium, all across europe. over the weekend just gone. we sold protests in austria. they turned particularly violent crushes between police and demonstrators. in austria, austria, of course, one of the 1st countries to insist that there would be mandatory vaccination from 2020 to those who don't get a vaccine from february next year. well, they face fines and potentially some jail time if they don't come through with that . we also see new measures put in place in the netherlands and the new lockdown in place in the netherlands that came into force from sunday. what that means is old balls and cafes will be closed. schools and colleges also, although most of those are already short for christmas, holidays restaurants are going to be limited towards providing take our meals. it
3:04 am
caused a lot of unrest in a number of cities, including the hague, where we saw thousands of people out on the streets. thousands of people also demonstrating in germany as well in the cities of humber, dusseldorf, berlin, over cities as well. people coming out to say that their own happy not only with the measures that are in place, but with what they expect to come into force in the near future. on sunday, we heard the german health minister call lots of us saying that he wants to see mandatory vaccination in place in germany. sooner rather than later. over the weekend, germany also joined france in binding old tourists travel from the united kingdom into the country. while over the channel into the u. k. swell, there was the micron variance of colbert 19 is pretty much out of control there. we saw the mayor of london city con, declare
3:05 am
a major incident in the british capital. we also saw a large demonstration on saturday in which people were incredibly unhappy with what has gone on in terms of the actions from the british government. things turning quite nasty there at ton. the the thing is, the oma chrome cases are increasing exponentially. the world health organization is warning that every 3 days we could see the number of oma chrome very and cases doubling. what we are seeing though is between the virus itself and the measures that countries are having to take to try and stop the spread of the virus. it's going to mean it's not a very merry christmas for many people across europe. or if you're vaccinated, recovered to or test negative for co video, perhaps when a digital pass allows you to get out and about for christmas, or forget a paper certificate or a q r code on your phone. a swedish companies invented
3:06 am
a cobit pass, which is implanted under the skin in the form of a microchip as small as a grain of rice. we talked to the inventors about their very different type of wearable tech incense or a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a covered passport or waste accessible on your implant. so in case you phone wrong, subtle battery, it's always accessible to the implant for is readable. busy by and the smartphone, that house and fc function. so i can go to a restaurant or a movie theater. i just show them my arm and swipe me with a smartphone. and then that pops up the covert passport that i have on my chip. so
3:07 am
you don't need a special app for this kind of similar to a q r code. just out of course, i don't want the cure code on my skin. right. e commerce joined amazon isn't our log ahead with france. so with the company's cheap book deliveries, which independent bookstores and publishers say, is putting them at risk of despite amazon's resistance. french legislators are now backing a law which will make the tech firm's charge to their customers. more shall do best get a report. amazon, watch out france is coming off to you. well, at least after you're cheap delivery costs for books in a fresh swipe, but the internet giant french lawmakers say amazon must charge more for book deliveries. one operator is currently offering almost free delivery of books regardless of the quantity and the amount of the purchase, while no other player is able to provide such
3:08 am
a bargain to readers. it isn't therefore clear that these commercial practices in you form of price competition, which no longer allows the law, the single price of books to produce its full effect. until now, amazon has been charging the legal minimum for delivery of books of a single sent, and that has left many french publishers and stores like this simply unable to compete. and that is problematic for a country where independent bookshops are big business. there are more than 3300 stores here, significantly more than in many other countries in the european union. this new law is being welcomed by booksellers who say it will help protect publishers. to independent bookstores don't sell the same things as other sales points. they have more 1st time novelists, more challenging publications that as a lot hundreds of publishers and writers to exist. amazon had robbie, it's hard against the law and says it's free deliveries were a boon to those who live in rural communities. today,
3:09 am
90 percent of french municipalities did not have a bookstore on their territory. and more than 40 percent of amazon's book shipments are destined for postal codes without a bookstore. the cost of such a measure and the purchasing power would amount to more than $250000000.00 euros per year. the reality is that this will see many people who not only use amazon, but other online retailers to pay out more. so are people ready to dig deeper into their pockets to support these independent stores? or should i be, i am ready to pay me or because i prefer to go to a bookstore to see several books and make a choice. i find it better. i prefer to go and bind the bookstores directly. so here i think it's reassuring for the book industry outside of amazon, amazon, amazon shouldn't have a monopoly on international sales because we can feel it locally in france. so if we can remedy this unfair competition so much the better,
3:10 am
because i think it's important in society to help local businesses and especially booksellers buy books directly from the bookseller rather than amazon. but of course, it's also important to keep an eye on good value for money hashed. i am ready to pay more. our booksellers offer us a service that is not bad and advised that amazon kenneth, necessarily give us. i think it's a good idea to help them. well, if i find that a sales platform cannot replace booksellers with their advice, but we must admit that it's extremely practical either when we're far from the points of sale or when i'm looking for a very specific product. and i know that on this platform, i will find it. nevertheless, we must maintain a balance of all sales channels and indeed, one must not be able to kill the other. and especially booksellers, this is not the 1st time that france has had amazon in the firing line. the country has been gunning for the online giant is pay a minimum global digital tax. while european union regulators have also accused the site of using data from independent merchants to unfairly competing against them
3:11 am
with its own products. amazon has also seen itself face spines for abusing dominant market positions in italy. recently to all of this is making europe a much more hostile environment for the company. and it seems that this is only the beginning. charlotte, even ski r t, paris american actor chris novice, finding his careers being killed off as swiftly as the popular sitcom character. he portrayed out of sexual assault allegations, emerged north, is known to millions of sex and the city as mr. big a row, which came to an abrupt end on episode one of the recent rebuild. oh, he denies the accusations and no police investigations been launched, but the act has already been dropped by his agents and fellow stars distancing themselves to north's also lost a $12000000.00 deal to sell his tequila brand in the wake of the allegations exercise equipment company pelettano also dropped its viral advert featuring the
3:12 am
actor. and shortly after the sex and the city rebuke premiered to women anonymously accused north of sexual assault in 242015. then a 3rd woman came forward with a similar claim of chris north admits meeting the women, but insist that no line was ever crossed. journalist and commentator chadwick more talk to us about how easy it is to ruin someone's life before there's been any due process. a crime doesn't have to be committed in order for you to have your reputation ruined in hollywood. now with this actor, we don't know there hasn't been me, criminal investigation yet, hasn't been me. a trial. obviously, the evidence is, but then also kind of alls in line with a lot of what we're seeing with this sort of lead me to movement. where you have basically allegations that come after powerful men decades later, years and years later. you know, that's never a good thing, especially when you're looking for evidence to convict someone. especially if chris not had actually sexually assaulted someone. there been plenty of times in which
3:13 am
it's been proven that a woman falsely accused the man for been dictate reasons. it really discredits and does a grave injustice people who are actually victims of sexual assaults. we need to realize that there are actual sexual criminals out there in violent sexual vendors . you should be arrested. and the more that you sort of muddy the system, the worse it is for everyone and more of those people to get away with held for over 14 years without charge in americas. guantanamo bay detention center man. so a day face says he was subjected to torture. and sexual abuse, he has his story in today's going on the ground here on our t. they've, he says he worked as a goat herder and security guard in yemen and went to afghanistan as a teenager. he claimed he was and kidnapped by african wolds and handed over to the cia for a sizable, a cash bounty. he was then held in guantanamo suspected of being a recruiter for al qaeda, which he's long denied. he tells us more in today's coming underground, which has off to this bulletin, but i mean, you can on, at this hour, you can also watch it at all t dot com
3:14 am
a background that like, or, you know, and i think with other people here too. and think, well, well, bother you and they will do, you know, you know, giving us like it isn't that one of the things like anybody got even kind of just 40 with one of the forget to she was some her pre a, to plug a detainee face and they thought a didn't they have a sex in the room sometime that was to make it open to live. understand like, would you like to have in many, many stories and like, you know, some of the problem they don't want to come out if they could still get to legal issues like it had been there for us. they had been kind of low guards and those gone to the right and one time full pay and grades and thinking that they are,
3:15 am
you know, they would, they would also tell them this is the frontline you are in a war zone here. and i got the guards towards it is on here. and any action, my detainee, what they can be as like an actual tourism or like a register in guantanamo. and if we're going to hinder cycle protests, they did like you are announcing, you had again to sustain a state you're trying to bring out to our country down like even those instigators . i'm kind of most and got him because he likely have a good going. i don't know is a simple for sure who just this lawlessness of your power and they're going to detention, you know, what, they don't know. like it's different kind of get you to many places around the world without the for moscow on the way hundreds of scientists including nobel prize winners,
3:16 am
calling on the u. s. to change its nuclear weapons strategy. a drop, the 1st strike option, we have what's called them, so concerned among all stories off of the break. ah . oh, driven by dreamer shapes banks concur. some of those with dares sinks. we dare to ask
3:17 am
for what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy. even foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic development only personally and going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk with mom again. court hearings on the make 17 plane crash will resume in the netherlands, sedate malaysia airlines flight was on route from amsterdam to kuala lumpur when it was shot down over separatist control east in ukraine. in july 2014, all 290 people on board were killed. rock as dfacs looks at the exclusions and
3:18 am
claims alleged in the years since it has been one of the most politicized and scandalous trials in modern history. there was no other way. it could have turned out almost $300.00 innocent lives were lost in the horrendous tragedy that shook the world. ah, and that 7 years since there has been no closure, every one knew it would be ugly from the get go full of politics and venom when malaysia, which own the plane. and last dozens,
3:19 am
and dozens of citizens on that flight was excluded from the entire investigation. on the very beginning, we see too much policy cindy. the idea was run to find out how this happened and all that. but the seem to be concentrated on claim to pin it on russia. already there have decided that he must be russia. we cannot accept that kind of far attitude. the netherlands form the joint investigative team to investigate what happened nominally, that excluded russia. the anti government forces in east ukraine, malaysia, of course, but it included ukraine, which itself was a suspect then rank the 9th, most corrupt country in the world by ernst and young. why is that relevant? well, guess who provided most of the evidence to the prosecution? ukraine successor to the k g b,
3:20 am
the sick ritchie service of ukraine. my question is, what is the source of the tap to reports? doesn't of alt office for he's a mainly tapped conversations from the ukranian service engine for now, mainly on other any other sources. nice issue, no that hats conversations from ukraine to put it simply to part of what ukrainian intelligence agencies provided were alleged telephone recordings of rebel fighters where they apparently talked about downing the jet from the get go. the recordings were suspected of being manipulated and raped out of context and edited an opinion that was supported by many forensic experts zones to them. i found a total of 9 manipulations. there was a lot of editing here. this is left channel, right. and they're just looking different. i can see there is a difference of the noise and i also can see they are basically some kind of
3:21 am
merging of an audio. this is entity, yes is. and is that lear? yes, the netherlands forensic institute itself reportedly refused to attribute the audio recordings to one of the defendants and the m. h. 17 trial. citing a lack of data to the prosecution eventually contracted an obscure lab and lithuania to verify the recordings which they of course did. together with a bat 8th anonymous witnesses and a slew of and verifiable pictures from social media. the prosecution declared case closed from the russia fated assay. we have established that the russian federation was complicit in the downing of m age 17 because they made available the weapon that was used to shoot down the plane. we have all the material to substantiate that material that the defense says is full of holes. even dutch and peas were left flabbergasted when they wrote a report that ukraine wasn't at fault for allowing civilian jets to fly over an
3:22 am
area. that was a little air crossed graveyard looked elusiveness of. i find its results disappointing. what is particularly disappointing and that there was no proper investigation of the evidence which clearly indicated that some ukrainian authorities has processed the information and realised that there was a threat of the plane crash. they very clearly knew that there was a threat. you don't need to be a forensic scientist to know that 3 days before the downing of them age, 17 ukrainian military plane was shot down in the same area. at was reportedly the twelth, ukrainian military aircraft last there in 3 months. and it was shot down at 6200 meters, well out of man pad defense system range and close at the airline a territory. dina can find in the direction to meet a campaign, his truck, and an unprecedented scale put chain russian citizens as presumed guilty. this is
3:23 am
completely unacceptable. it was launched to compensate for lack of evidence in russia, provided a slew of evidence and findings to the joint investigative team information about the missile. and now it couldn't have been the book miss all variant in service with russia and formation about the launch site and how it is unlikely that the miss hall was fired from where the joint investigative team says it was almost everything was dismissed while the prosecution wanted was a critical piece of evidence, satellite shots of the area believed to be in possession of the united states than which the u. s. still refuses to show to anyone. and also the title of the investigative judge made a legal assistance request to the us with respect satellite images, which are allegedly available and depict the launch of a book missile. the american authorities replied refusing to share any material.
3:24 am
the investigative judge filed a 2nd request, stressing the importance of the requested data. the american authorities again refused to show the data. it is difficult to imagine that the us, especially in these times of enmity, but concealed damage being evidence that would implicate russia. in these, if we speculate easy to imagine that the u. s. would conceal damning evidence that would exonerate russia and implicate ukraine, which washington gives billions and guns an aid to that is what the age 17 trial has been so far. a case built in speculation, anonymous witnesses, ukrainian intelligence agency testimony, and of course proof from lithuanian forensic labs. round 700 scientists,
3:25 am
including 21 nobel prize laureates of signed an open letter to president biden, calling for changes to u. s. military strategy. they believed washington should declare that it would never used its nuclear weapons. first. we urge you to declare that the united states will not use nuclear weapons 1st, under any circumstances, by making clear that the united states will never start a nuclear war. it reduces the likelihood that a conflict or crisis will escalate to nuclear war. while under the current strategy, the united states pledge is not to use atomic weapons against non nuclear states, but it gives washington the right of the 1st strike against nuclear states and extreme circumstances. these include non nuclear attacks on either america or its allies, including their infrastructure. as relations between major nuclear powers remain tense as security concerns have grown since the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty, philippa, one of the key pacts between the u. s and russia. it banned the possession and production of short, an intermediate range, cruise and ballistic missiles, but in 2019 the u. s. withdrew from the treaty. we spoke to one of the scientists
3:26 am
appealing to president biden about their concerns. i hope the spirit of what we grow on is understood. and that is that we need as world hours to have an awareness of the danger of nuclear weapons. you know, it's approaching century since we are oshima and i think memories of the press, most people who make policy at present time, very little memory of what that was. our ability to make something much, much worse than her ocean. it's apparent, and i think the fear of that isn't as great as it should. a russian cosmonaut and to japanese space tourists have returned to worth after spending nearly 2 weeks of all the international space station. i is the landing
3:27 am
site in catholics down crew which included the 1st tourists only i assess in 12 years was an old for 12 days. they took part in scientific experiments on blood circulation, which will continue now. they've landed, he goes on off reports for mission control, and russia will indeed we are in mission control. this is russia, houston, so to speak. and the crew of 3 have successfully landed in the steps of cassock stand for the captain. this mission has become his 3rd successful trip into all bits, but there were 2 new commerce, a japanese billionaire and his assistant, that would tourists. and they have spent just short of 2 weeks into all. but they did not just stay idle, that they were tourists, of course, but they did take part in certain scientific experiments. for example, we do know that the billionaire he picked while back on earth about a 100 of activities which he tried in all bit well now that they have returned about 200 people are taking part in well, a bit of a welcoming operation. they are searching for them and will be helping them to get
3:28 am
used to again to the conditions here or not. there's also a surprise for the japanese crew. for example, they will be met with a traditional japanese dish with japanese noodles. a bit of a surprise again, but the key thing is they're back and they're healthy. so i haven't time to tell them that shootings from moscow for now. thanks for joining us. i'm calling bray. i'll have your next update right here in just over half an hour. see that? ah, what else? seemed wrong? i just don't. i mean you want to shape out disdain becomes the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground
3:29 am
oil and gas manufacturing, electricity, telecomm, price, quotation, all of them now have i o t type of infrastructure connected to the internet. so clearly realizing this disruptive potential so that those countries can't ignore it because it threatens national security issue. but if we take the nato and you countries, virtually all of them subscribe to certain doctrines and maintains selling but tell us forces. they are a cyber army on behalf of a country that's their job. oh, working room or should in the back, she popped in. she said, well, i'm getting ready to go shopping for christmas and i wish
3:30 am
there was a girl to buy another, shooting another safe part of american life shattered by violence. the gunman was armed with an a ar 15, semi automatic rifle. when the issue comes home, it's time to act. when we're filing on this issue, the other side winds, by default, the lady that lived over there. i was walking one of the dogs, which is why do you wear again? were you scared of? nothing? put ticket off of me. i think the people need to take responsibility into their own hands and be prepared if those kinds of weapons were less available. we wouldn't have a lot of the shootings. we certainly wouldn't have the number of deaths ah ah.
