watching r t international broadcasting live from moscow on capon trench thank you for joining us. a pro independence march in the eastern spanish city of poland's fear descended into violence on monday as it faced off against a counter-demonstration for spanish unity. police were forced to intervene to try and separate the two groups pro independence organizers accused the unity supporters of provocation.
well the violence comes as the catalan presidents expected this tuesday to address the regional policy is now in session in barcelona speculation about is that carla's bridge to more may declare the region's independence in his speech but catalan society and politicians alike are split on the issue. and we need to declare independence to be on the political level was established to be able to negotiate a friendly breakup and a new context in the current context the results of the one cannot be taken as an endorsement for barack naming catalan independence well officials in that the spoken about catalonia succession bid and some of the statements have resorted to personal threats should not be repeated let's hope nothing is declared tomorrow because perhaps a roundup like the one who declared it three years ago that it's well that was the spanish prime minister spoke the person making reference to cast former president
luis bunnies to declare to the regions independence back in one thousand nine hundred thirty four he fled to france where he was captured by the nazis and handed over to spain's fascist regime in one nine hundred forty the politician was tried and executed for rebellion. well that comparison has sparked a great deal of controversy one catalan m.p. said the people don't need to be reminded of the tragedy while the leader of the left wing thought they must party accuse the spanish prime minister spokesperson of being either ignorant or irresponsibly provocative artie's an associate is a barcelona. following a crucial referendum of october first the catalan people are holding their breath to see what happens next and no one is indifferent the series of protests have shown that society is split massive crowds have been coming onto the streets in support of proclaiming independence as well as those calling for unity meanwhile the cattle industry seems to have stalled recently calm in its rhetoric.
the day after the first of october we will start a new period taking into consideration the will of the castle and us do not underestimate the strength of the people of catalonia. a woman of the situation asks for mediation and mediation means that we need a third passage of all the i honestly believe that we have the right to be heard if . i will make a direct appeal to the european union but what happens this tuesday is keycap slowly as leader karl has pushed him onto the expected to address the region's parliament and potentially declare independence but will he and what happens next let's talk to locals here to find out what they expect. i think he will declare independence because he has no other option after the referendum one possibility is that he would do it but without immediate effect postponing it until after negotiations. even they really do declare independence it will take time to come
into force anyway i don't think there will be independence. and i think that they could calmly way to few days and quietly think about what they exactly will do if they harness haris so they must know what they're doing i would like him to stop everything he's incapable of doing this independence will hurt both spayed and catalonia it took many years to make the country whole and to divide it just like that is absurd i can more that it is necessary to show rebellion i do not know even dependence if the solution this is. demonstrates that half of the population is stirred up. if the state were intelligent it would negotiate a special agreement with catalonia so that catalonia remained inside spain but their mentality ideology and franco ism prevents them from doing that as people wait to find out the direction in which their leaders will take them it's clear that the time for answers has come and clarity on this major crisis is now overdue
reporting from barcelona and is this issue for our team. well ninety percent of those who cast their ballots in the catalan referendum voted to split from spain but if the region does move to become independent it would have a lengthy to do list. if catalonia were to become an independent country that would presume a new constitution a new election law and a change in the political parties let's remember that about half the population doesn't want to be and independent cut the lawn and that would become the basis for i think a very contentious political division within any new independent country. brussels has made it very clear that if catalonia breaks away from spain they would have to reapply separately to become a new member of the e.u. this would put them in the position of many other countries that are case now may
be cut to look at position to jump the line because they're already in the e.u. as part of spain and their institutions presume membership in the u. and that means use of the euro as well. as we know is completely useless when it comes to the actual threats controlled migration of the growth of terrorism with people in ca to law and you want to join nato it simply is part of the larger bureaucratic structure of europe maybe so but clearly there are no defense or security needs that kata lundy has that require membership in nato. if it's a unilateral declaration illegally against banish law nobody took a nobody of importance will recognize that a lot if on the other hand she added separation with madrid's agreement then it will not be a controversial matter for other countries to recognise got a lawyer. now they ate lunch in français sent to come together
nativist tuesday to protest against the president's raber reforms the unions are calling on five million civil servants to walk out on their jobs and take part in one hundred thirty planned lunches across the country. well for the latest on this we cannot. correspondent who's in paris why that is so what's the situation like in the capital. well as you can see around me there are literally thousands of people who have come out on this protest here in the capital in paris so this is one all around a hundred and thirty plus protesting gatherings that it being organized across fronts in this national day of action it was called by some of the biggest unions in france who for the first time in ten years have come together to call
a national day of action like this people are unhappy about pay freezes here in france they're unhappy about the cuts to the civil service so a hundred and twenty thousand jobs a g.t.t. cuts over the next five years and they're unhappy with some of the measures implemented in the model governments first budget in the last few weeks as well as the changes to the code to provide which many this is the working code of contre many people say will impact their jobs and their security in the future many people very unhappy with what mr macklin's government is doing just a few months into all face and they're also happy with the way that mr mock wanted just like protest is because for many people in prague they see these as being there right now right to just speak out to give their opinion on things they are unhappy about it take a listen to what mr mark on this said in the cost of protests was absolutely determined i will not give away not to slack is not to cynics not to extremists
well let's be clear who these slackers are according to mark wrong that's us all workers are slackers slackers are the people who work hard to earn a living to feed their family to pay their debts their mortgages this is purely a provocation from the. head of state and from the government meaning that slackers wake up every day to go to their into prices to work. oh. well that's what the response has been from one of the unions we've been talking to some of the protesters here on the streets are saying one nurse told me they've come out to protest today they've taken the day off work because they're unhappy about that wages wonders saying to me just three years of working she only earns nineteen hundred euros a month and that's because it's tax is take it to people very unhappy there is also a large police presence with a protest as you'd expect of this size and already we've seen some small scuffles
taking place between some of the younger demonstrators and the police just as this protest is about to get under way now this comes at a very difficult time for mr michael as he's already being accused of being the president of the rich with some of those tax measures and he's already had to backtrack on some of those measures including the idea of scrapping attacks on the luxury goods which is your second fastballs which really did not go down well with the french public but even that is not enough just stemming the tide of anger that is felt by many people across france who feel that the muslim government is not going to do enough for the working class and the poor here in france. interesting times are in power shot to do thank you very much indeed. for me ouattara students through numerous we've been at the entrances to their college blocking the doors in protest at the president's labor plans college officials say
they're backing the strike confusing macro of destroying social protections. than some french officials are choosing a new pair discussed with mccall mess in the central close region have turned to the president's portrait in their office to face the wall last week and obama in the east and milk it was that region cut the bottom third off his portrait in protest of thirty percent cuts in the state budget. now u.s. backed fighters in syria now say they're just a week away from liberating islamic states one time they fought battle rocka effort to push the terrorists out of the city which was once populated by more two hundred thousand people has left it in ruins here are some of the latest pictures from inside rocca.
the kurdish led forces launched their military operation against the terrorists in iraq in early june they've liberated iran's ninety percent of the city although i still continues to fight for control of the center the last of the old city would be a huge blow to the terror group the syrian army is also pushing them out of debt as all considering i considered myself last stronghold in eastern syria. but the story of rocca is the focus of most media attention not far from the city are a number of assyrian christian villages which were repeatedly targeted by i still here's the story of one woman whose village was reduced to rubble.
yeah the islamic state attacked us by surprise at four in the morning. they said leave everything behind because the village is going to be razed to the ground and that's precisely what happened before our rice we watched the smoke rise from our houses. from then on our life as hostages of islamic states started our fate was uncertain everything was uncertain with. the calling planes didn't differentiate when they were bombing they hit i still fighters as well as civilians we were living amongst the terrorists the jets didn't discriminate but we feared most was the aircraft as they were bombing relentlessly .
and this is the house i lived in as you can see it's totally burnt down it's been robbed and looted there's nothing left. britain's prime minister has warned the country must prepare to quit the e.u. without a deal if it can't agree with brussels on how to exit that's after months of frustrating talks with need to have failed to produce an agreement i believe it is profoundly in all our interests for the negotiations to succeed it is also our responsibility as a government to prepare for every eventuality so that is exactly what we do. when mrs may added the necessary documents have already been prepared for just such a note that scenario what about her reports from london well to raise a maze. said that the talks with brussels are going to drag on for another year at
least and she wants to be prepared for the adventure ality is and despite the fact that she insisted that she's making real and tangible progress in these talks by the way that is something that very few people believe right now almost a list same breath she admitted that the country has to be prepared for a no deal scenario now proof of the fact that the government is realistic considering this no deal outcome is the release of two so-called white papers or these documents that set out the government's plan for trade and customs arrangements in case britain ends up crashing out of the european union without having struck a deal we've got the prime minister really finally admitting the reality of the situation that britain finds itself in right now she also said that even if there is a deal it probably won't be struck until the eleventh hour until the very end of that
negotiation window that britain and brussels currently have obviously movies admissions. than enough for the opposition leader jeremy corbyn to capitalize on in parliament. in the referendum we still know what the future describe me. the question must be asked. does the government be doing a strong line if this government can't negotiate a deal for britain very sure where you draw a train if you. fresh round of talks is getting underway in brussels this week sorry that message from to reason may about being prepared for every scenario wasn't just intended for domestic consumption is also a signal to brussels that. really britain is prepared to walk away with
a no deal if it doesn't get what it wants and these talks and in the meantime we've kind of got both sides bring the responsibility for these talks and the progress in these talks. achieving that partnership will require leadership and flexibility not just from us but from our friends the twenty seven nations of the e.u. the ball is in the court this is not exactly a ball game be. it's entirely in the u.k. court and it's important to remember that to resume a's own position is incredibly per carry a stright now she is under intense pressure she is seen as politically rather weak right now popularity has plummeted and she can't quite shape talk of a party who against her and of course that's something that diplomats and negotiators in brussels going to be watching quite closely.
facebook is feeling the heat for its apparent role in alleged russian meddling in the u.s. elections on that story after the break. what holds if you should. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want. to go. this is what. people are. interested. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around. preparation. washington washington the media. the media.
the voters elected is not to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. facebook is coming under increased pressure over the way it was used in russia alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election media outlets and lawmakers accuse the social media giant of not doing enough to investigate the issue or facebook security chief has hit back saying the company must not end up becoming an orwellian styled ministry of truth r.t. so america on has the story. alex stamos took to twitter to address accusations
directed at facebook saying that journalists largely underestimate the ability to filter content for billions of users most of journalists of celebrated academics who've made wild claims of how easy it is to spot fake news and propaganda now his patients seem to have run out when he tweeted that there might be a way to battle fake news if you're not afraid to turn facebook into the ministry of truth so if you don't worry about becoming the ministry of truth with machine learning systems trained on your puzzle biases then it's easy this type of twitter storm is highly unusual for facebook a company that sticks to very restrained statements facebook has recently come under focused after revealing over three thousand ads allegedly purchased by russian actors during the two thousand and sixteen election totaling to about one hundred thousand any media claiming that facebook hasn't done enough to stop what they call an influence campaign be useful to understand what the. social media.
platform companies did not take these threats seriously enough i believe they are recognizing that threat now they've provided us with information don't know the answer to this question but it's interesting to me our. however face has itself stated that the at amounts to almost nothing in terms of total content explaining to paint a thousand times that to calm the sarm science are now writing reports and releasing statements on russia as a legit activities on the media platforms during the two thousand and sixteen election but they are doing so without proof or evidence to substantiate any of their claims. now a new police unit combating hate crimes on the internet is to be set up in the u.k. the british home secretary amber rudd said it problem needs to be properly dealt with and hate crime is completely unacceptable what is illegal offline is illegal online and those who commit these commonly crimes should be met with the full force of the law. well the new units will be run by police officers and has initially
been allocated two hundred thousand pounds in funding its main work will consist of assessing complaints from people he believes they've been the victim of hate crimes online however critics say it was threaten free speech we had opinions from journalist martin summers and commentator paul vieira lists the amount of crimes from. even to the recruitment in planning isis uses the internet for is something that we absolutely have to put our arms around that again i wish we didn't have to have this conversation but we certainly do and you know compliments to the secretary right for taking the step front in this in the global community you've got to define it very tightly. nobody except for freedom of speech or could break into school for all sorts of reasons and within the society those are rules about language but you've got to be very careful with your norse squeezing out in the just a debate and i think the reader will have to see how this operates and hopefully it
will be done in a sensible rather than a stupid way for example if you can go into many websites and forums and use you know say see anything that resembles a heated conversation you'll find a lot of users complain humans have been been blocked and they're very angry about the fact that they feel they're being sent it so do we need to worry about going too far in that direction it's. exciting right now healthy good solid debate we don't do that because they think they're damaging so many things you know what our arms around actually be realistic about this people are going to have strong opinions but they probably run threatening groups of people or individuals because that's just not all the proof that what's already. a big step to have the same rules in both that somebody either.
