the wealth of the world's 10 riches men. his double to the pandemic began the income of 99 percent of humanity, a worse off because of coven 19. this is not by chance, but choice. economic violence is perpetrated when structural policy choices are made for the richest and most powerful people. this causes direct. com to us all the time they make has really expose been a call. it is an fuel them. so oxide has been tracking billionaire wells for some time. and of course the full list shows that it has been growing over the last 40 years. but over the last 2 years, it's been really exponential, so we call it a billionaire bonanza. and at the other end of the spectrum, of course, for 99 percent of humanity, it's been a very, very difficult time. and most people are worse off as a result of the and then make, of course, more than a 160000000 people have fallen into poverty during this time. and if in a moment when you can see the difference is really showing very, very starkly,
1:03 pm
can't cause success. when there is such disparity, that at one end of the spectrum, you have people who have more wilson, they can spend in several lifetime. and the other we have people struggling to pay their next health bill or, or not knowing where the next meal is coming from. having such a level of disparity affects everyone, even the wealthiest, because you know it's a sign of unhealthy state of affairs, of a unhealthy society that needs addressing. according to walks on the plan that makes push more than a 160000000 people into poverty. on an estimate of 17000000, they allege have died from corona virus and around 6000000 more have also lost their lives use were lacking for health care in countries. meanwhile, the top 10 people on forbes rich less including well known public figures. lucky must be those and bill gave 6 times more money on the poor, $3000000000.00 combined. but while les doubled our wealth,
1:04 pm
the income of 99 percent of the world's population was. and since the pandemic began, a new building has been created roughly every day. or from believe the key reasons possession equality is that seems apply. one of those key drivers for equality has been vaccine access to vaccines. though the difference between rich and poor countries has grown the quality so and the poor countries in africa, in general, only 10 percent of the population has had his 1st course of vaccination america. and it's economic power and several other countries in the world can help reverse that from unlocking that and from the calculations that, that we have made. it would be possible, for example, to vaccinate the whole world to achieve and health care for all the universal health care and their ways and all come and others have campaign for lifting those intellectual property rights. that in fact, mean that pharmaceuticals have
1:05 pm
a monopoly over over the vaccines that are not readily available or produced as, as, as, as they could all over the world. the home birth attendance has explained how a push for using only inclusive language in the u. s. is impacted her work is about a mountain says she was advised not to use the was mother or woman and instead say the birth and body we no longer use words like woman and mother irving bodies, sperling people burning person many straighter new york made why speaks out against trans madness, after being forced to use woke terms for women in labor. every one knows that there are only 2 sexes, men and women and only women give birth. and the irony of, of being asked to deny the fact that only women give birth in this face just is, is, is hysterical in some sense, because we're only,
1:06 pm
they're like we're only there to serve women because this is a issue specific to women, right? trans friendly environment affects more than language. with many trans doctor's allowed to hide that biological sex. it's an issue to have medical professionals who are male pretending to, to be women, inserting themselves literally into the insides of women's bodies. and i've had women who have shown up to gynecological and dialogue, hope and obstetric appointments, thinking they're going to see a woman, a practitioner and it, and it's a man. you don't want a fan day, but you're already in a, you've already taken off your pants. many health professionals don't support the agenda, raising craze, but these views can get you in trouble. this ideology is authoritarian in it. if
1:07 pm
you question even one part, whether it be the kids or women sports, you were instantly deemed trans phobic. i get messages and emails from women all over the world regularly coming out with their telling me their stories and they can't speak out or they feel like they can't speak out or they were ostracized. or, you know, like yoga teachers. ah, you know, just getting bullied for not do the problem now being, i mean it's, it's everywhere. they are not free to speak. they are not given an open forum. they are clocked out quicker than you can say. trans ideology of staying in the us just days after taking office virginia is a new republican governor is dismantling democratic policies cancelling a school mosque my life and binding critical rights theory from the curriculum. but the sweeping measures revoking a barrels of criticism. kellum open has the details. it's a new fast pace in american politics. we have glen youngin,
1:08 pm
who is the republican governor of virginia, just sworn in on saturday, and as promised, he signed 11 executive orders on his 1st day in office. now the most famous of those 2 of those 11 executive orders were 21 removing critical race theory from schools and the other rolling back the mask mandate in public schools. now that 2nd one, rolling back the masked mandate faced a lot of opposition across the state of virginia. and it was not only from democrats, one of the pupils attending a school in arlington actually spoke up against the math mandate and thank the arlington schools for keeping their mask mandate. in effect, this mother happens to be the white house spokesperson. thank you to arlington, public schools for standing up for our kids, teachers and administrators, and their safety in the midst of a transmissible variant school divisions across virginia are rejecting glen, young and dangerous anti science executive action and keeping mask requirements in
1:09 pm
schools to ensure the health and safety of k 12 students in the commonwealth. now schools in arlington, fairfax and alexandria, decided to keep their masked mandates in effect and though young can initially campaigned on this, he decided, as he had said, throughout his campaign that he was about empowering parents on issues facing their children in school. so in response, he's given these schools 8 days to reconsider parents concern blan younger. well, 1st of all, we wrote the order specifically to give all of the school systems basically 8 days to get ready to listen to parents. now the 2nd pivotal issue was on the teaching of critical race theory in virginia's public schools. there is a revolt against the way our schools have been managed comprehensively. and critical race theory is a big part of the critical race theory is a political agenda that as absolutely in our schools. and it teaches every one to
1:10 pm
view everything through a lens of race and then pits our children against one another. yes, we will teach all history the good and the bad, but to actually teach our children that one group is advantaged and another is disadvantaged simply because of the color of their skin cuts across everything we know to be true. now this move sparked a wave of online backlash with many saying there was no problem to begin with and it critical race theory is a legitimate part of education in the state. critical race theory isn't in the virginia k 12 curriculum and lifting a mask mandate in schools is foolish. they know perfectly well that c r t isn't on the curriculum, but they're using it just like masks and faxing as a way for their rhetoric and actions to see more palatable. the p t. s. have become radicalized recruitment centers. as a republican, i am sick of you already. virginia never taught critical race theory. you banned nothing. now your stupidity is spreading cove it in schools that will end the lives
1:11 pm
of more stupid republicans. why do you hate god in america? are you a fascist? now it's important to note, virginia has been pretty solidly in the democratic parties camp for the last decade . and the new governor who signed all these executive orders on his 1st day, only one by roughly 2 percent. so. busy we're looking at the state of virginia, a historically blue state that now seems to have a red governor on the state leadership as kind of an example of yet another example of how the united states remains very, very divided in these times. and it's pretty clear that virginians don't see eye to eye on some rather critical issues involving the schools where their children learn . why now there's been another update on the often inflamed relationship between harry potter, all of the j. k. rowling and members of the transgender community, gleason scotlands, i have announced they will now not take any action over a tweet by an activist that revealed rawlings home would dress. at the time of the
1:12 pm
post, the writer wrote this response to the trans campaign. they should have reflected on the fact that have now received so many death threats. i could paper the house with them and haven't stopped speaking out for the post. she's responding to include a transact have a standing by her house holding fine with slogans such as trends. liberation now though deleted, it was immediately re posted with a home information available for old. for c routing says she's been targeted for speaking up for women's sex base. right? and people were quick to point out the power double steiner than the police is decision not to sean. the campaign is i wonder why no action being taken? i'd assume it's because for kyra, the food chain are transported and don't upset the apple cart. the fact her address or any one's address be posted on line without knowledge or consent is wrong regardless of why it's a violation of safety. dock thing is illegal and it doesn't matter if you delete the content a few hours later makes you wonder what the police are playing at cherry picking.
1:13 pm
what is lawful depending on who is complaining. she used to pander to those people, even changing the sexuality of characters, to please them. she played, woke her mental gymnastics and slipped up, and then the mob turned on her. it is quite surprising. they're not taking any kind of action. although you see this is a very much a gray area where legality is difficult to prove. and in this particular case, i believe the, the police were reviewed the circumstances clearly with the lawyers and decided that there wasn't any legality that we have now a situation in the u. k. and other countries where people don't believe the others have a right to have a view, and this is an opposing view to them. and i think that's quite disgusting. and you know this? well, it could well end up in some form of prosecution or someone should call us harassment ass. i believe that she has said that she had also had problems since
1:14 pm
then. the individuals that committed harassment afterwards may well end up being guilty of crimes. a backlash against routing began in 2020 office. you question a headline about people who menstruate. boy, i mean, the meaning of the word woman had been last summer. would you? this took that to mean she was saying transgender men and women should have fewer rights. critical commentary to andre walker says you can, police are only wouldn't go off the crimes when it suits them. any police force that equality can do more or less investigation. i refer you back to the case of the scottish comedian, but taught his dog or the watchdog how to do hitler salutes in order to prevent of a joke. they are perfectly willing to put it in the resources when it suits them, but they're not willing to put in the resources when it doesn't suit that police. scotland will be perfectly happy with j. k. rowling being intimidated, perfectly happy without being harassed and will take actually no action to defend
1:15 pm
time because they don't agree with politically. my comment is next. j. k. rowling is going to say she can afford security. what about the rest of breton to have these highly political police force, highly political police leaders, police under political control, what politician, fellow, who to prosecute when that is a danger not to j. k. rowling. because she's rich and powerful to ordinary people. like, you know, maybe russia felt different soccer, louder off of the keys, but and if putting pressure on his new german language channel often talks with the countries foreign minister in moscow, correspondence donald quarter was following development. one of the main points of discussion at the press conference was of course, the fate of our t, german language channel, our t d e, which has been facing a lot of censorship in germany, the russian foreign minister, circ a live. rob said that the german state was actually directly involved in this
1:16 pm
violation of free journalism. going as far to say that sanctions may even need to be taken if the matter is not resolved. as for his german counterpart, she said that the state actually was not involved. so let's take a listen to what they both said. now christian cannot ask the state interference regarding r t d. well, that's just not true enough. unless you know, people are we have every reason to believe that the german government is directly involved in what is happening. let me remind you that banking services for our journalists were stopped at an early stage. the german media regulator blocked the satellite signal despite the serbian license, we believe that this is an interference in the work of independent journalists. and i wasn't all bare bach had to say about the rtp, actually she want to went on at length to speak about how popular channel is about how it's the 4th largest on social media, based on what she said, you might even think she was one of our fans and cannot all g 2. he has confirmed.
1:17 pm
it's the 4th largest on social media. that's of course there was also a lot of talk about the security guarantees that rushes proposed for itself and nato to prevent further escalation of the conflict in ukraine. russia is still waiting for concrete answers from nato and the west. although we have heard from washington, which is called the, the proposals that rushes put forward. nonstarter negotiating points for the german foreign ministers. part though, she said that the german government is ready for serious discussions about these proposals, while she also demanded security guarantees from russia. and she said that russian troops are somehow threatening the russian troops that are located on russian territory near ukraine. as for lab, though, he said that the russian state has the right to do what it wants with in its own territory. in the next 1000 pounds, each may. i will not, in recent weeks, more than 100000 russian troops and military equipment were a mast near the ukrainian buddha without any visible reason. yeah. it's hard to consider this as anything other than a threat to abuse needed judges fool. we explained that the provocation,
1:18 pm
coming from many western politicians, is making it necessary for our troops to conduct combat training measures. and we explained that we cannot accept certain demands regarding the actions of our armed forces on our own soil. we drew attention to the fact that while the u. s. and other nato members are demanding the removal of our forces, they are positioning troops, including troops who have arrived in europe from overseas. the double standard here is obvious, but it, it does seem though, that the 2 foreign ministers do see eye to eye on the north stream to gas pipeline . burbock said that europe needs russia to be a reliable supplier of gas to solve this energy crisis. that's right. now, plaguing the consonant wall lab, rob said that he had a long talk with his german counterpart about the unfortunate politicization of the north stream to pipeline. so, a lot of topics were discussed at this, a press conference between the foreign ministers of germany and russia. the prime suspects in the house is taking a texas synagogue,
1:19 pm
had previously been investigated while you got your throat. he's as a potential is louis terrace. more details on nuts, off the brit. ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. the only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk ah
1:20 pm
ah ah oh, come back. and the criminals warned that even the most respected mainstream media have now abandoned the most basic for checking. it comes off at the new york times, saw that an unnamed official at moscow was putting out tea of embassy staff ahead of invading you frame for a ministry folks. the one where he was a thought about no to the printing such since jason is liars, has turned worse than outlets into little more than anti rushing pure operations.
1:21 pm
americas new york times newspaper is now an agent of ukraine, secure to service through it. the source of this found the structure has promoted another support sensation suggesting that the russian embassy and keith is being evacuated, the russian embassy and conceal it's general in ukraine, operating as normal. and the american journalists have lost their culture of checking published data, even though we have published many materials on this issue. and other times piece is just the latest center litany of mainstream claims that moscow's voting and ukrainian invasion folks between russia, the u. s. and native so far fail the damp intentions. on the contrary, western politicians recently ramped up threats of new sanctions against a criminal. meanwhile, native states of boosting military support to kia with canada. joining the u. k. in sending troops and special forces written is already shipped. miss all systems which are claims are strictly defensive in nature and
1:22 pm
u. s. allies including sweden, reinforcing military positions near russian borders and geopolitical unless we spoke to believe that such a military build up cannot be seen as purely defensive. i can't see how you can call these are defensive weapons if that weapon is used, either from behind the green line it, let's take dumbass in eastern ukraine for instance, from behind the green line on the cranium side or inside the green line. then it's not a defensive weapon. i don't see any benefit for russia or for co invading ukraine. they have nothing to gain from this at all. however, the u. s. the u. k. and france, for instance, the 3 primary members of nato. they are right now. there's the record, low confidence in the government, in political leaders, and so what they need is a distraction. and that distraction might come in the form of conflict. the western media and western political bodies are playing with fire in the sort of direction
1:23 pm
they're trying to take this. ah, a british man who took full people hostage to synagogue in the us state of texas. that weekend was previously flagged by u. k. o, forties malik. 5, so our chrome had been seen as a potential islamist terrorists during the 2020 masturbation by britain's a. my 5 intelligence agency where you get 30 is determined. he posed no threat at that time. he was left on record of the person of interest but was able to fly to the us and by far on there, it appears that authorities had not related to any of their concerns about into their american counterparts before the attack and village perpetrator was killed after 11, i'll stand off at the synagogue and cali build a sub job of dollars. all the hostages survived. police in england have detained the 2 teenagers as part of the ongoing investigation into the attack. my colleagues, you know, neil's spoke earlier to a former why 5 intelligence officer who said the incident resulted from a failure on both sides of the atlantic. a failure to level one is that and i 5,
1:24 pm
did drop the investigation into him and it might well have been because he was seen to have mental health issues rather than terrorist to contention. but the other m astonishing thing from my perspective is the fact that he was allowed into the states as well, with a string of convictions and with his mental health issues in the background. and, you know, the u. k. u s. homeland security act is supposed to be the, precisely to blog people coming in to the us on these grounds. so it's not just my fault, i think, although i do think we have a problem one in the ship holding that information, that guessing shave, holding the people they have to investigate. but for the us also to have allowed him in, not have called out the u. k and said, miss mans got convictions all over the place. we can't let him in sending bag. noticing that when you read into it that he was able just to get a gun. lethal weapon without being on any authority watch list at all. that just
1:25 pm
shows an absolute failure on every, from the intelligence agencies in the u. k. the border security usa, the policing security in the usa as well. and i think, you know, it's great now that we can pinpoint what happened, what went wrong in this case. but that's not how our intelligence agencies based in the usa and the case working. they are there to preemptively gather intelligence, to preemptively stop the sort of terrorist attacks. not just have information that can be used and be useful after an attack. the police are going to do. so why do we spend all this money on all incredibly invasive intelligence agency, if they are letting these old people sit between the cracked time after time after time, not just in the u. k or the u. s. sake. but across europe, as well as the last 7 years, are you confident lessons have been learned as to what happened over the weekend? or are we going to see further instance other crimes happening if there is what seems to be on the i'd said such a weak communication between the u. k. and us authority. i am sure they will say
1:26 pm
the lessons. and what that will mean in reality is that they will probably scoop up and share even more and increasingly invasive communication technologically. and they will say to protect all of us against terrorism. whereas in fact, if they did the job properly preemptively to target and stop potential terrorists rather than waiting all on privacy and take away all our civil liberties and countries that would be much more effective. and that would be the channel. i would suggest that they start looking into, rather than just aggressively breaking whale human rights and civil liberties on line, which is not helping them if not helping them to protect us. and it's not protecting the national security. american athletes set like thought in a fast approaching beijing winter olympics, have been warned to ditch the personal smartphones and instead use disposable mobile phones. the us an empty committee has issued a stern warning about alleged shawnee surveillance every device communication
1:27 pm
transaction and online activity may be monitored. your devices may also be compromised with malicious software, which could negatively impact future use. one of the ramifications of the advisor could make it hard for the athletes to stay in touch with family and friends, and restrictions on foreign spectators due to cobit and could prevent them from posting their accomplishments on social media. and by doing an important aspect of keeping in touch with their fans and building a profile. and the u. s. is not the only country taking such measures, canada, the u. k. and another ones i've also worn thereafter leaps about potential surveillance in china. giving the same recommendations about using disposable cell phones. we heard from an asian affairs expert who believes the us is hippa, critically accusing others of what it's guilty of itself. this, i think this to part of the campaign to stigmatize china. and also, we're not forgetting ever. snowden to western countries cannot prove that they
1:28 pm
themselves are not spying on other people. in fact, they are quite infamous of doing so, right. i was still there has said about what, because find countries in the world. you the now infamous you at eavesdropping of his allies is already quite common knowledge to well christian, or is allies, had openly criticize to us on that. on the contrary, why they not be part of how much china has done to protect it at this time in the olympics, you see robots delivering food for the athletes in the canteen to prevent corporate transmission. as i think china's answers to public health coming back to the world's athletes. or those are the headlines for this album boss, turning away in just a few moments time where the team are back in 30 minutes with the very latest join us again. but
1:29 pm
when i was a wrong one, i just don't know. i mean you have to figure out because the advocate and engagement it was the trail. when so many find themselves, well the part we choose to look for common ground. ah, [000:00:00;00] with this is boom, both the one business so you can't afford them it the i'm branch of board and i'm rachel blevins in washington coming up. the world economic forum has kicked off
1:30 pm
it's virtual summit. we'll tell you what kind of president had today and what we've learned about the performance of the chinese economy in 2021. manufacturers and the u. k. are feeling the heat from storing inflation. we'll take a look at how those rising prices are impacting the post bracket. era was as the crypto space continue to expand, the 1st european nation is taking steps to curb the influx of advertisement. we'll look into what's going on in spain. we have a lot to get to, let's go and we lead the program with the latest economic data out of china where growth slowed in the 4th quarter to 4 percent bringing the total growth for 2021 to 8 point one percent. now while it was less than expected, it comes after a year in which beijing launched crackdowns on both the tech and real estate sectors as it continued to recover from the pandemic. now addressing the world economic forum virtually on monday chinese president sheeting peng pointed to plans
