on sunday, thousands of people came out to protest against belgium, government covert measures in brussels. 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 new ones, christina, 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, nor was our goal is to say, we don't want to, society looks at the 2nd quarter. we're here because our freedom is under threat and we want to restore it after it has been lost for 2 years. the left voice was on it. go up a hole in my fight for the freedom of a future generation. i'm ready to take to the street and lose everything to let
4:03 pm
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 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 then you locked down in place in the netherlands that came into force from sunny day. 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 caused a lot of unrest in a number of cities, including the hague,
4:04 pm
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 finding 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 that we saw the mayor of london city con, declare a major incident in the british capital. we also saw a large demonstration on saturday in which people were incredibly unhappy with what
4:05 pm
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 chrome cases are increasing exponentially. the world health organization is warning that every 3 days we could see the number of oma chrome very in 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 in age. i mean, tell me vaccinated recover the test negative for co vigil, perhaps on a digital parcel allows you to get out in about a bit for christmas. soon. you may know actually need to physically show a q r code on the phone because the swedish companies invented
4:06 pm
a coven pass that is implanted on the skin in the form of a tiny micro chip. we talked to the people behind it or their immersive technology that can be used for many different things. and right now it's very convenient to have a passport for waste accessible on your plan. so in case your phone runs out about 3, it's always accessible to ah, the implant is readable by and the smartphone that has and 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 r code. just up,
4:07 pm
of course i don't want the cure code on my skin right. i into the junk. amazon's loggerheads with front of the company's cheap book deliveries independent bookstore. some publishers say they've been on the cuts. 1 and because of it could go to business according to french politicians, then the solution is to make amazon charge their customers more salary. bend ski reports. 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 a bargain to readers, it doesn't therefore clear that these commercial practices a new form of price competition,
4:08 pm
which no longer allows the law on 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 cent, 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, 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 lobbied hard against the law and says it's free deliveries were burned to those who live in rural communities. today, 90 percent of french municipalities did not have
4:09 pm
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 bookstore directly. so here i think it's reassuring for the book industry outside of amazon learning, amazon, amazon shouldn't have a monopoly on international sales because you can feel it locally in france. so if we can remedy this, unfair competition, looked so much the better. okay. as much as i, i think it's important in society to help local businesses and especially booksellers sample i booked directly from the bookseller rather than amazon. but of
4:10 pm
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 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 with its own products. amazon has also seen itself face spines for abusing dominant
4:11 pm
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. it is a fight of unequal forces. legislators must protect the week from the powerful they are the gulliver's some way of lilliputian. next to them, it shall be done through a law that has binding power. in this case, a law on shipping face, they are growing day by day. like all big tech corporate. this is exponential growth. how can we resist these almighty giant's monopolies become omnipotent, more powerful than states? this is alarming. we have become hostages. i hope the legislators will include a new anti monopoly law in that agenda. the question, these monopolistic structures which absorb everything like a black hole in particular small shops. it is a real wall. well, amazon argues is that it is hiring people for its warehouses, its platform, and its maintaining purchasing power by lowering the price bar. it looks like
4:12 pm
a strong argument, but that's actually not the case. after all, her small store need 3 employees. where are the big chain like amazon needs only one and 2 out of 3 individuals do not get a job. this causes unemployment, poverty, and social inequality. american actor chris north facing his serv career been killed off as swiftly as the populace sitcom character he portrayed of the sex assault allocations emerged. he's known to 1000000, says mister pig in the serious sex in the city, of course. but his role came to an abrupt end on episode, one of the recent reboots is now being dropped, whereas agent will fellow start distancing themselves. and thus, despite his strong denials, and so far, the absence of any police investigation will also. so last a $12000000.00 deal to sell off his to kayla brand in the wake of the allegations exercise equipment company pellets and as also dropped its viral ad featuring the actor. shortly after the sex and the city reboot premier to women anonymously
4:13 pm
accused north of sexual assaults in 2004 and 15. that a 3rd woman came forward with a similar claim. kristen off admits meeting the women, but insist that no line was of across the said journalist and commentator chadwick more talk to a bit more about how easy it is these days to ruin someone's life. because there's been little due process. crime doesn't have to be committed in order for you to have your reputation road in hollywood. now with this actor, we don't know there hasn't been the 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, 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
4:14 pm
a woman all the excuse demand for vindictive reasons. it really discredits and doesn't a grave injustice people who are actually victims of sexual assaults. 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. you're watching out into national world news, midnight life for moscow. is me kevin, in the coming up major us network agreed to pay compensation to a teenager, threatening them with a multi $1000000.00 lawsuit portraying him as a racist. we'll talk about that more after the break. ah oh, driven by drill shaped banks, concur some of those with
4:15 pm
airs sinks. we dare to ask oh, so late, you cannot do anything about it. it's now a self failing extinction event for the u. s. economy, sorry, america, but it's over because the ability to do what paul walker did raise right is no longer on the table because the duration rests, the fundamental underpinning of u. s. canada, the bond market is so far out the outdoor that any little bit move up. we'll crash it anyway. so it's either crash or one way or crash in another way, but you're not gonna avoid the crash.
4:16 pm
ah, i gang of only for most go so you as mainstream media suffered yet another hugely embarrassing and incredibly expensive blow after a 3rd major network settled at $275000000.00 court case. and b, c reached a settlement with kentucky sing a teenager other nicholas simon, after making it look like he committed a hate crime in the face. so for the native american man, callum open reports. we have a situation where nbc has reached a settlement with nicholas sandman, and at this point they are the 3rd major network to reach a settlement nicholas' sandman suda cnn for $275000000.00. he sued the washington post for 250000000, and they have both settled. now you'll recall the situation. nicholas sandman was a high school student back in january of 20. 19. he and his fellow classmates at
4:17 pm
covington, roman catholic high school. they were in washington. d. c for an annual march for life, anti abortion demonstration. and at that demonstration, there was a confrontation, a standoff between himself and a native american activist named nathan phillips. now, images of that went viral and went all over social media and us media, mainstream media, social media, et cetera, were quick to jump on the incident and say that because nicholas and i was wearing a make america great again, a hat that he and his classmates were racer, dan had had graciously taunted this native american. this is some of how the media reacted at the time. disturbing viral video has margin outraged, or covington catholic high school students locking a native american man. some of them harassing and jeering at a native american elder disturbing viral video shows them all the teams that make america great. again, hash caressing a native american out there,
4:18 pm
troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial, nicholas sandman was only 16 years old, a minor at the time this incident took place and his image was plastered across the us media. he was accused of disrespecting, an elder taunting a native american. he was accused of being racist. many, many extreme allegations were hurled against him, his face was all across social media as well as mainstream us media. but then longer video surface that showed that he and his friend had not. she aided the confrontation, he did not approach the native american. and the scene of what took place was just wildly inaccurate. the way us media portrayed the chain of events as if this group of high school boys had just randomly walked up to a native american to taunt him. it wasn't true. i mean, here's what actually happened. students from kentucky's all boy covington catholic high school, were instructed to meet on the stairs of the lincoln memorial to await their bus home. a few yards away were 5 black men who identified as hebrew israelites after
4:19 pm
nearly an hour of and during the verbal attack. the boys asked a chaperone if they could perform one of their pep rally chance to drown out the hate group. the chance attracted the attention of a group of native americans led by veteran activists. nathan, philip, they began to celebrate by chanting and dancing to the beat. mr. phillips began moving to his right down a line of boys, eventually stopping face to face with nick sandman. the young man remained where he had already been standing, placing his undivided attention on mr. phillips, now, at this point, nicholas sandman still has ongoing lawsuit against cbs abc news, the new york times and rolling stone magazine. so we'll see how much of a settlement is reached in those cases, but many are looking on and saying perhaps this shows that before destroying the reputation and plastering the face of someone who is not even 18 years old. all over the media, it would be good to get the fax right 1st. caught hearings on the image, 17 playing, crash resumed to the hague. the malaysian lines slight,
4:20 pm
was on route from amsterdam to color lumper when it was shot down over separatist controlled eastern ukraine. in 2014 or 298 on board who killed senior correspondent looks next at the exclusions and allegations 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 . 2 include mm ah,
4:21 pm
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. why 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 policies in the the idea was none to find out how this happened when all that. but, and 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,
4:22 pm
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 alt office for he's a mainly tapped conversations from the ukranian service inch for non mainly on other any other sources. naser sure no that hats conversation 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
4:23 pm
experts zones to them. i found a total of 9 manipulations. there was a lot of editing here. this is the national right candidate, this booklet and different i can see there is a difference of the noise and i also can see they are missing some kind of merging of an audio. this is entity, 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 the bat, 8th anonymous witnesses and a slew of and verifiable pictures from social media. the prosecution declared case closed from the russia fated. archie would have established that the russian federation was complicit in the downing of m age 17 because they made available the
4:24 pm
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 you crate wasn't at fault for allowing civilian jets to fly over an area that was a little air crossed graveyard lifted intrusiveness 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
4:25 pm
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 chang, 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 believed to be in possession of the united states, and which the u. s. still refuses to show to anyone. and already tactful of
4:26 pm
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 show any material. the investigative judge filed a 2nd request, stressing the importance of the requested data that 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 evidence that would implicate russia. it is, 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. he's what the m h 17 trial has been so far. a case built in speculation, anonymous witnesses,
4:27 pm
ukrainian intelligence agency testimony and of course proof from lithuanian forensic labs. a senior correspondent there were finally for watching earlier, you know, been talking to the store info from philosophers got some developers to tell you about it in paris and assailant this evening. on to the knife has now released one of 2 women. he'd taken austin but 5 hours ago, please, sir said adding that they're negotiating with the perpetrator report. so the suspects note of had mental health issues and is demanding to an audience with the justice minister lisa to prosecute cotton, wanting people to stay away from the area. it's an evolving story. these pictures went a bit earlier on please police presence there. keep posted if we hear anything more . that's our t's world news at midnight from moscow with me. kevin, are in thanks for checking in or do stay around if you can for our next programs and your part of the world after the break. ah,
4:28 pm
with is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation or community, are you going the right way? or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend to join us in the depths or remain in the shallows.
4:29 pm
