she. has just declared herself the country's interim president as she made her announcement from the presidential palace clashes broke out on the streets of bolivia has been thrown into turmoil by the resignation of who has declared himself in asylum in mexico. has been ongoing since the presidential election in october over claims of vote rigging and resigned the situation has deteriorated even further with scenes. of looting and arson in the capital some locals have built
barricades to protect their homes. and someone's be honest as we're watching our homes because there's a lot of vandalism that is happening in our area since last night they began to loot the story to surround us to criminals $32.00 surrounding tire area we had to come out to defend it. is that it is on the since yesterday the looting has begun in the streets police and fire stations were torched along with shops cars buses everything was burned in my district looters began to intimidate us meanwhile supporters of morale is have been turning out in large numbers both in bolivia and across latin america although his opponents are hailing his resignation as a victory for democracy. the resignation yesterday of believe in president ever morales is a significant moment for democracy in the western hemisphere these events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in venezuela nicaragua that democracy and the will of the people will always prevail i don't know if it was
a breeze in south america or if it was oblivion hurricane of democracy be here today i feel a little breeze in venezuela of freedom and justice a former ecuadorian president rafael correa who hosts a show here on our team believes that the people of bolivia have been tricked but he does for. the opposition is now enjoying its fleeting triumph i hope that this will not lead to even more violence because even more or less has huge support among the population when everything calms down most bolivians and i believe they're good people will realize that they have been manipulated they have something to compare to 1314 years bolivia has experienced the highest level of prosperity in its history there has been stability economic growth the elimination of illiteracy reduction extreme poverty it's almost a question of who won the election isn't worth it everyone knows that evo morales won the only question is the margin by which he won and the right are calling for violence in the most insulin way there are considerable resources and weapons
behind them so if there are clashes in the streets when there are no law enforcement agencies when the police state party riot is when the military says it will not go against the people we're not god the embassies the palace of government what is left evo morales to do to avoid bloodshed to avoid more violence furthermore the army commander asked him to resign what could he do to avoid more bloodshed and violence just leave but this is what we call a coup the organization of american states not only allowed this but is also part of this coup the organization of american states has always been a tool in the hands of the us it is time for us latin americans to create something of our own because we cannot continue to resolve disputes in washington or even worse in the organization of american states. the power vacuum in bolivia has raised questions over the country's resources and the role of multinational mining companies now bolivia is estimated to have 9000000 tons of lithium the 2nd largest
reserves in the world and that is in just one salt lake if other sites are counted the country could contain up to half the world's on mind lithium and lists are predicting that global demand for the metal is expected to triple in 2027 and today it is used in electric cars batteries for various portable electronic devices and military hardware chuck kaufman from the alliance for global justice thanks bolivia has been hit by the resource curse. there's no question that washington is behind the. regime change efforts in. every country and. particularly that has resources in june of this year. it was going to be. industrialized there there lithium.
it's just explore to raw materials. his plan was for bolivia to begin to produce and batteries refining the lithium ion producing batteries themselves which cuts for. transnational corporations for a profit stream. russia's foreign minister is in the french capital attending the paris peace form it is an event aimed at promoting a better global governance sergey lavrov gave his take on the subject of global responsibilities. the west is pretty much playing to be blamed for everything. no. just mistakes while a very strong speech by the russian foreign minister outlining his a vision of what's happening in the at the moment and talking about some of the issues of what he sees as the way that the west is viewed itself in the past and
how 'd we views itself in the presence in terms of its global domination he said that the west needs to take responsibility for its actions to understand its domination of world affairs has been melting away it said that it needs to accept that the world of the feature is a centric world in fact he even went as far as accusing the west of preventing this from taking place of course. because for more than $500.00. more than 5 centuries they don't mean that the political economic and cultural civilizational life on this planet. as this objective. breaks well he also was talking about some of the recent events over the last few weeks he talked about catalonia he talked about things that were happening in bolivia of course the resignation of i know the former president evo
morales and he talked about the fact that the intervention there wasn't at the pointed finger being pointed at russia russia hasn't been accused of meddling in any of these countries but he suggested that essentially somebody else was somehow have not been accused of the coup in bolivia and this is strange so something discrepancy in the minds of those who normally a great job political agenda i believe that it is very unfortunate what we see in iraq it is very unfortunate. stage. but don't forget that. the people still. american invasion we also saw a little bit of humor from the russian foreign minister he was asked during the questioning session how was russia preparing for the 2020 u.s.
election he talked a lot about the u.s. today so i wondered the presidential elections are coming up in 2020 russia getting ready for that. we'll resolve the problems on tour. but the main thoughts of. the paris peace conference was the fact that did to respond to the global demands to global conflicts that countries need to work together and that means that the way forward is upon the centric way forward and not the dominance of the west. bringing the troops home has been a frequent pledge from donald trump but finding out exactly how many troops need to be brought home well it's no easy matter. i want to get out i want to bring our troops back home it's time to bring them home. we're no longer the suckers folks until recently the only way to get accurate data on u.s.
troop numbers was from the defense manpower data center which reports directly to the secretary of defense however the d.m. d.c. is no longer releasing figures like it used to. we learned on january the 9th 2019 that juta new security going to its d.m. d.c. can no longer report currently deployed service members this new guidance places us in jeopardy of not having the information necessary to count those who are deployed overseas. just by drums promises a troop numbers overseas rose that only after he took office until september 2017 where the troop numbers abruptly stopped the m.d.c. figures for afghanistan iraq syria and several african countries are simply left blank. we will not talk about numbers of troops or our plans for further military activities we are obliged to learn from overseas reporters from
journalists on the scene where the wars are happening how many u.s. troops are there as well as what we've been obliged to learn that same way for years how much bombing is going on by both of those measurements trump increased most of the wars he inherited and then stopped reporting the information and in some cases clearly has continued to escalate or maintain levels of troops and bomb strikes well talking about his opposition to war and being reported on in the us media as a so-called opponent of the wars i think you've seen recent poll sware 16 percent of the u.s. public wants these wars to continue so 84 percent of us need to shut up where we're not as likely to shut up if we're told accurate information and so we have all this us so called journalism about trump the opponents of the wars trump the bringer of the troops home. the u.s.
national suspected of being an islamic state extremist has been deported by turkey and he is now stranded on the border with greece with a u k. it's normal that countries don't accept citizens who was. terrorists in this case and from another country so they set someplace and all you stay in turkey mr adams is trying to blackmail you up into getting more into getting more migrants or pay him more money i think luke is confusing terrorists and refugees now your pledge to $6000000000.00 euros to turkey in 2016 is part of the migrant deal which it only paid $3000000000.00 of those zeros while turkey spent 40000000000 dollars out of its own pocket now what we're talking about is dying isis terrorists these
people are not turkish they're european and they deserve to go home and they deserve peace justice in their home countries they didn't commit crimes in turkey they're not turkish citizens they committed crimes in syria they're european citizens so where in this equation is it turkey's job to try these people or hold these people turkey's not a hotel like the turkish interior ministry said and it's not a land bill to hold europe's garbage i think turkey has a cheek to say that they are not to tell because they supported isis the son of president at a bargain off turkey what's the trafficker with the people of isis you know exported the oil that they extracted in syria and all the places to japan the son of the president off turkey should be in jail i think the only way to talk to turkey is to be tough that's the only way with mr at the u.n. and now east not for isis anymore a change disposition but in $21415.00 turkey supported isis clearly and
made the war against isis last longer syria and iraq have capital. punishment many of the countries where these isis fighters are held the e.u. the e.u. is against capital punishment by leaving these people stateless and stripping their nationality what is that supposed to do wash their hands of wash the hands and say ok that's it we have no responsibility and now by remaining silent all this time turkey saying you know what that's enough enough is enough i'm not dealing with your garbage i'm sending it right here door whether you like it or not and now europe has lost the chance to act they're going to have to live with the terms that turkey is dictating to them and they're going to have to deal they're going to look in the mirror and look at the monster they created with these isis terrorists and they're going to find a way to bring justice to these people. it's all about that we had some technical difficulties over there but we're back on track now so with the u.k.
general election less than a month away the leader of the opposition party jeremy corbyn has been branded a stalinist this attack comes though not from a rival party but from an interfaith charity one that is receiving funds from the home office to combat extremism and so he has more. the u.k. government is generous in granting money to various charities and organizations and that's undoubtedly good when those organizations against is done a phobia and anti semitism building a more friendly society take for example faith matters a charity organization norge to help faith communities working on integration dealing with hate crime and countering extremism they've also been recipients of u.k. government funding through the home offices county extremism program but with elections looming and campaigns kicking off faith matters it seems also has another agenda as they've been accused of launching a major attack on the country's main opposition labor party and its leader jeremy
corbyn describing the party as being a stalinist cult of korban this country needs an effective opposition for a healthy democracy labor is now regressing into a stalinist cult of corbett. as a left wing muslim i cannot vote for carbons labor the truth of course is that he has backed armed conflict dozens of times he just hasn't backed by u.k. forces faith matters has been accused of tweeting about labor and mr corbyn more than 200 times since it was listed by the home office as a recipient of it support that's 5 times more than about the conservatives boris johnson or to reason may it's hard not to notice that the organization is targeting corba not only for alleged anti semitism but also a ray of issues including sympathy to the syrian president bashar al assad for example faith matters denies the allegations of focusing their attacks on the labor party so they also criticize the ruling conservatives who have been plagued by
repeated accusations of racism and islamophobia faith matters has been and will continue to be critical of the poor way in which anti-semitism has been tackled within the labor party correspondingly we have consistently been critical of the conservative party and their lack of transparency in action around stamping out anti muslim bigotry within parts of their membership base now it's not the 1st time organizations financed by the u.k. government been court funding and been campaigns the integrity initiative a subsidiary of the institute for statecraft which has received more than $2000000.00 pounds of foreign office money spread defamatory content about jeremy corbyn on their twitter account later the integrity initiative was forced to apologize that was a mistake and we wrote letters of apology to jeremy corbyn where as apple a tickle as we could be and the foreign office ordered an investigation into the
matter if there is any kind of organization for which we are paying which is involved in domestic politics in that way i would totally condemn it but it seems the questions will continue to rise as to the extent of the u.k. government's funding for groups and gay. in such political attacks especially just before an election that could decide the u.k.'s future for many decades to come. there's a body of people particularly who take an interest in his national security poll since all who are overwhelmingly critical and skeptical about the scorpion's policies and his past involvement and where as it seems to be far enough for somebody to criticize those without hiding behind as it were charity label to saying this is my view any organization that's funded by the taxpayer and says it's a charity should take a party political parties and viewpoint and i think that's a great mistake and just actually wrong in war. the european court of justice
has ruled that all members must label products originating from what it calls israeli settlements the move has been slammed by the israeli foreign ministry israel strongly rejects the recent ruling of the european court of justice which serves as a tool in the political campaign against israel the rulings entire objective is to single out and apply a double standard against israel. the move has been hailed by human rights groups are famine said consumers have a right to know the impact of these purchases have on people's lives luxembourg based court claims the decision will help consumers to make informed choices the areas covered by the ruling include the west bank east jerusalem and the golan heights back in 2015 the e.u. issued special guidelines covering the same topic however only a few countries implemented them jason perlman a communication strategy strategist and professor. wash from the palestine
solidarity campaign shared their views on the case. you have to look at what's behind this the people behind this not really looking to improve the consumer's ability to understand what they're buying they're really looking to target israeli businesses and they're really looking to target israeli businesses in judea and samaria they're trying to put facts on the ground before there is a solution the area is disputed best you know and even if they are politically disputed i would argue that many of these factories and companies are actually based in areas that will become israel if there was such a 2 state solution if that were to ever happen. but you know at the end of the day people have to live today people have to work and feed their families today tomorrow next week waiting around for politicians to come up with a solution is simply going to leave a lot of people having to feed their families on thin air so rather than target israeli companies that do work and you don't marry or rather than target
international companies that invest in import and export and do business with them why didn't they support those efforts why didn't they help people and then we might actually have a much better future for the people of this region the european court of justice has recognized the fact that by not labeling goods from the settlements as coming from an illegal settlements. the european consumer. is basically being fooled into thinking that products made in israel of the not correctly label or if they carry the label made in israel when they actually come from illegal settlement now it's down to the various countries the members of the european union to implement that if they have any principles when they call the israeli settlements illegal then they should be immediately. introducing labeling and enforcing it and that's really important and let's face it if you are
drinking wine from the israeli settlements then you are saying cheers or whatever the equivalent is in your language to an illegal occupation and to breach of international law i'm nobody should be doing that really. the b.b.c. has been criticized for showing an old clip of prime minister boris johnson a while reporting on this year's remembrance sunday ceremony the corporation has apologized but many people suspect the swap was deliberate. they can septics all pledging new protections for soldiers from legal action against accusations of wrongdoing on the battlefield like to say that increased forces and improved accommodation the liberal democrats are announcing a 10000 pound scale swallow but i don't train. in the parade will be. stored as easy.
and then the prime minister. all of a massive government. try to. use was a production mistake and we apologize for the error of. all this on facebook b.b.c. accidently uses the wrong short when boris visits flood victims. this morning on b.b.c. breakfast we showed footage of winston churchill and implied it was actually boris johnson this was a production mistake and we apologize for the error. was more insulting the b.b.c. saying it was a production error we're expecting the public to believe that it was not a many policemen of the truth to protect the prime minister or his poppy really can't.
be made mistaken our piece last night we wrongly used a clip as jeremy called in responding to this scene in spring by chance. 6 that there's a female back with headlines at the top they are saved this is art international. i'm going to fulfill the repeated promises apologise to the people and promise to be you know we've all pots to. be. free.
now you want to work. no. longer. all. i can make i can link up my time after time corporations repeat the same mantra sustainability it's very important to accelerate transitions to sustainable transport sustainability stay number may not be more equitable and sustainable well . they claim their production is completely hamas.
has. it down to something companies want us to feel good about buying their products while the damage is being done far away and this is something i'll just keep going to any minute i mean look. this is the movie news to me do you want to. underscore that superman in. the last ice age caught up in the joke because my. point was not to be good at them you see i want to optimistic. the west. the so-called individual as opposing it is not. a strong be the democratic society and the freedom of individual her.
