on sunday, thousands of people came out to protest against belgium government cove at measures in brussels. that 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 as a, a 3 month window for health care work is 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 new ones received, 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 was our goal is to say, we don't want to, society looks at the other school. 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 up a whole and i fight for the freedom of

a 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 cautious between police and demonstrate as 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 didn't you locked down in place in the netherlands that came into force from sunday? well, that means is all 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

7:05 am
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 tons. the the thing is that oma cron 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, peter all over there. now if you vaccinated, recovered or test negative for co video, perhaps wonder digital pass that allows you to get out in the back for christmas. however, soon you may not need to show a q r code on your phone. as
7:06 am
a swedish company has invented a k v pass, which is implanted under the skin in the form of a tiny micro chip, we talked to the people behind it. are there a versus? i was acknowledge that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a passport for way success to build on your plan. so in case your phone runs out about 3, it's always accessible to ah, the implant is readable. busy by and the smartphone that has an if the 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 passport that i have on my chin. so you don't need a special ed for this kind of similar to a q
7:07 am
r code. just up. of course i don't want the cure code on my skin, right? i i'm internet join thompson's at loggerheads with franz the moment of the company's cheap book deliveries independent bookstores and publishers to say they are being under cart and could go out of business. and according to french politicians, the solution is to make amazon charge their customers more. charlotte uminski. as the d times 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 bargain to readers. it isn't
7:08 am
therefore clear that these commercial practices a new 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 sentence 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 burned to those who
7:09 am
live in rural communities. today, 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,
7:10 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. i am ready to pay more . our booksellers offer us a service that is not bad, and advised that amazon cannot 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 compete against them with
7:11 am
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. the american actor chris north is finding his career is being killed off as swiftly as the popular cit come. character he portrayed after sexual assault allegations emerged, his known to millions as mister, big in the series safe in the city. but his ro came to an abrupt end on episode, one of the recent re, boot, has not been dropped by his agent, while fellow stars is distancing themselves thus, despite his strong denials and sofa, the absence of any police investigation will last as also last, a $12000000.00 deal to sell his tequila brand in the wake of the allegations
7:12 am
exercise equipment company pallets own to is also dropped his viral advert featuring the actor well shortly after the sex and the city re boot premie ed to women anonymously accused north of sexual assault in 2004 and also 2015. then a 3rd woman came forward with a similar claim. kristen off admit, met meeting the women, but insist that no line was ever crossed. journalist and commentators chadwick more talked with so about how easy these these days to ruin someone's life before this being any jew 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 the trial. obviously, we're not the evidences, but that also kind of falls 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,
7:13 am
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 it's been proven that a woman all the excuse demand for vindictive reasons. it really discredits and does a grave injustice. people who are actually becomes a sexual assault. we need to realize that there are actual sexual criminals out there and 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 it. hell for over 14 years, for that charge in america. guantanamo bay prison man. sore at the fee says he was subjected to torture and sexual abuse and features in the latest episode of art. he's going underground. what he does say he worked as a goat herder and security guard in yemen, and went into afghanistan as a teenager. that he says he was kidnapped by afghan warlords and handed over to the
7:14 am
c i for a sizable cache bang t. he was then held in guantanamo suspected of being a recruiter for alca eda, which he has long denied. he tells us more in today's going on the ground, which can also watch at any time at r, c dot com, a background that like our fee our, you know, and i think would bother you. i think we're here to and think will will bother you and they will do, you know, you know, giving us like it isn't one of the easiest things like anybody got even kind of getting 40 with one of them to get to. she was some her pre a to plug a detainee face, and they thought the land a and they have sex in the, 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, i don't want to go about it still get to legal issues,
7:15 am
but i've been there for us. i have been a no gosh, those gone to the right and one to ok. i'm good. i'm thinking they are, you know, there are they still to kill them? this is the front line you are, you're in, this is a war zone here. and imagine that the gods towards it is on here. and any action by cheney what they can be as like an extra tourism a. and if we're going to hinder cycle protests, they did like you are announcing you had the same mistake you're trying to bring out to our country down, like even those inter gators on kind of those 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,
7:16 am
they don't know. like it's different kind of get pushy too many places are on the well national computers. now. 100, a scientists including nobel prize when it's cold in the us to change it here. weapons strategy until the 1st strike option. well hey, what's got them so concerned? you're stuck to the brack. ah ah, match either financial survival guide. stacy, let's learn about 3 aloud. let's say i'm a striker and you're great time grief on banks of the fight. wall street broad thing ah, joy. 6 that's right,
7:17 am
fell out it will dest slavery. when i was shown, seemed wrong, when i just don't hold any new world. yes, to shape out. because the answer to an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah. so welcome back here with r t. now the court hearings on the mh 17 plane crash have resumed in the hague. the malaysia airlines flight was on right from amsterdam to qual,
7:18 am
lumper when it was shot down over separatist controlled east in ukraine. back in july of 2014 or 298 people on board were killed were against the f looks next at the exclusions and the allegations in the years since it has been one of the most politicized and scandalous trials in modern history. there was no other wade could have turned out. almost 300 innocent lives were lost in the horrendous tragedy. that shook the world. ah . 2 include mm ah,
7:19 am
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, and dozens of citizens on that flight was excluded from the and tar investigation. if you can call it that, on the very beginning, we see too much politics in the. the idea was none to find out how this happened and all that. but it seemed to be concentrated unclaimed 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
7:20 am
a suspect. then ranked the 9 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, the security service of ukraine. my question is, what is the source of the tap to reports? doesn't of all office for these are mainly tapped conversations from the ukranian service engine for now, mainly on other any other sources. nice issue, no, that happy 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, zoning them. i found
7:21 am
a total of 9 manipulations. there was a lot of editing here. this is left channel right. kennedy, i just put in different, i can see there is a difference of the noise and i also can see they are basically some kind of merging of an audio. this is and it, yes is adequately or 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, 8 anonymous witnesses and a slew of and verifiable. pictures from social media. the prosecution declared case closed from alicia, faded out, he would have established that the russian federation was complicit in the downing of m h 17 because they made available the weapon that was used to shoot down the plane.
7:22 am
we have all the material to substantiate that material that the defense as is full of holes. even dutch and peas were left flabbergasted when they wrote a report that you crate wasn't at fault for allowing civilian jets to fly over an area that was a literal aircraft graveyard. little shifted intrusiveness of i find its results disappointing. what is particularly disappointing, 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
7:23 am
meters, well out of man pad defense system range and close at the airline a territory. dina come flying in the direction to meet a campaign, his truck, and an unprecedented scale put chain russian citizens as presumed guilty. this is 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 mitchell and how 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 believe to be in possession of the united states than which the u. s. still refuses to show to
7:24 am
anyone. and also the title of the investigative judge made a legal assistance request to the us with respect to satellite images, which are allegedly available and depict the launch of a book missile. the american authorities replied refusing to share any material. 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 us, especially in these times of enmity, but concealed damage to evidence that would implicate russia at ease. if we speculate easy to imagine that the us would conceal davening evidence that would exonerate russia and implicate ukraine, which washington gives billions in guns and a 2. but that is what the 17th trial has been so far. a case built in
7:25 am
speculation, anonymous witnesses, ukrainian intelligence agency testimony, and of course proof from lithuanian forensic labs. around 700 scientists, including 21 naval prize laureates have signed an open letter to president biden, calling for changes to u. s. military strategy. they believe that washington should declare that it would never use 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 us pledge is not to use atomic weapons against non nucleus states, but it gives washington the right of 1st strike against nucleus states in extreme circumstances. and these include after non nuclear attacks on either america or its
7:26 am
allies, including that infrastructure as relations between major nuclear power remain 10 security concerns have grown since the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty fell apart. that was one of the key packs between the us and russia. and it banned the possession and production of short and intermediate range crews and ballistic missiles. but in 2019 the usb drew. from that treaty we spoke one of the scientists appealing to president biden about their concerns. i hope the spirit of what we rode on is understood and that is what we need as world hours to have an awareness of the danger of nuclear weapons. you know, it's approaching almost a century since we are osha and i think number is the press. most people who make policy at present time, very little memory of what that was our ability to make something much,
7:27 am
much worse than her ocean. it's apparent and i think the fear of that isn't as great as it should. not finally at this our russian cosmonaut and t, japanese space tourist have returned after spending nearly 2 weeks ago with the international space station i his landing site in can extend the crew which included the 1st tourist. and the i seen 12 years was in over 12 days, and they took part in scientific experiments on blood circulation, which will continue now that they've landed, there's done of has more now on the mission reporting from star city in moscow. well 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,
7:28 am
that would tourists. and they have spent just short of 2 weeks into all, but they did not just stay idle there. they were tourists, of course, but they did take balls in certain scientific experiments. for example, we do know that the billionaire, he picked wild back on earth about a 100 of activities which he tried in orbit. well, now that they have returned about $200.00 people are taking part in well, a bit of a welcoming operation. they are searching for them and will be helping them to get used 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. you're acting out 8 inch the company today does come out to half past 3 in the afternoon. and moscow will be back with more stories in the headlines in about half an ah,
7:29 am
a world is driven by dreamers shaped by concur center. those with dares sinks we dare to ask oh, working room or shed in the back. she popped in. she said, well, i'm getting ready to go shopping for christmas and we,
7:30 am
we snuck up there was a good bye to another, shooting another safe part of american life. shattered by violence, the gunman was armed with an 8 or 15, semi automatic rifle. when the issue comes home, it's time to act. when we're firewood on this issue, the other side wins by default, lady that lived over there. i was walking one of the dogs, which is why do you wear again? were you scared with nothing but take it off of me. i think the people need to take responsibility into their own hands and be prepared if those kind of weapons were less available. we wouldn't have a lot of the shootings that we certainly wouldn't have the number a desk with .
