. other thanks for joining us this is r.t. and an. interim president has proposed fresh elections. the results of the last vote which were marred by allegations of fraud that led to the ousting of a deadly unrest in which almost 30 people have reportedly been killed recently police clashed with people attending the funeral of a protester. charge and he is called control of the city by giving police dealing with protesters immunity from prosecution they were all as he was granted asylum by mexico spoken exclusively to r.t. about what is happening in the country. i've learned in my life that you never
choose a position it finds you this applies from the position of trade union had right up to the post of president there is an official report confirming i won the 1st round this is a very extensive report you can check it and any time you can see the election results but there is an important point to be made there was an agreement that the organization of american states was supposed to publish the official report last wednesday around 2 pm that was the arrangement but unexpectedly on sunday morning they called us and informed us that the preliminary report was ready we requested this report and there was complete confusion one part of it said that i won and that carlos massa came 2nd but this did not prove that i won the election in the 1st round i ordered that i be put in touch with louis and that i was not connected the report was published on sunday morning i spoke with the representative of the organization of american states and told him there bade him if you do not double check your report it will cause unrest and believe me and there will be victims by
publishing its report their organization of american states actually supported the kook who is in charge of everything now people from the us and whore here to talk with all got a follower of hugo bonser who for 7 years will believe you as a dictator i was called and tory tarion ruler a dictator but this is not so these are real dictators on the other hand new generations will now understand what a real dictatorship is. i would say that some of the groups in whose hands are going to make power is concentrated in not forgive us for creating social movements especially if the indigenous populations movement which has changed the image of our beautiful country they also cannot forgive us for nationalizing our natural resources and strategic companies which has improved believe his economic system upon the successful creation of a developed lithium industry mr alberto and i plan to set lithium prices on the world market i realize though that some industrialized countries are afraid to
compete 1st in the field of technological development and seconds they do not want other countries to follow the example of our economic model which is based on socialism. this is a cluster igle i'm convinced of it i had faith in the armed forces because i thought that in the military there are patriots and the imperialists however certain generals on the serve the highest gear they surprised me i could not believe it i had a wonderful relationship with all the military leaders of course there are good soldiers and military leaders but when it comes to the class struggle some forget about their ideological stance and their patriotism consequently their interests are affected they lost part of their power and cannot forgive us for this has nothing to do with being indigenous or not. so proclaimed later and yours is by i believe his military and she's appointed her own cabinet despite the ongoing protests against the organization of american states says that people should support or until after the new elections. the work of the euro yes the experience
and expertise that is gained from other episodes in the americas have helped promote and defend the right of the bolivian people to democracy from a president apparently willing to maintain his power by non democratic means including through electoral fraud we call on all bolivians to support the bolivian transitional government as a god's the democratic transition through electoral reforms and to a new free and fair elections as soon as possible and his might say that she's on holding the thoughts until fresh elections have been held but she appears intent on putting the country on a radical new course. they
had sent out to make it clear once again this is a provisional government that will 1st call for general elections and the legislature of assembly will have the job of carrying out the election of the members of the court and he's let the one. party america host rick sanchez discuss the situation in bolivia with pulitzer prize winning journalist chris hedges who says that the u.s. has a hand in the crisis. this is the revolving door story of latin america that as soon as a populist figure like evo morales appears the knives come out on the part of the
empire and on the part of those corporations that hold especially the natural resources in a place like bolivia hostage there's been a constant conflict between. these corporations and evo morales let me stop you there because you just said something that's very interesting there may be a reason for the united states government the government of chris hedges and rick sanchez for the country where we live to do things from time to time in other places right but it seems like what you just described is something where no one asked chris no one asked rick no one talked to our media no one talked to our congress it just happens out of thin air we go and destabilize the government doesn't that seem crazy yeah but that's you know decades of practice of the you know the so-called invisible state was the but it's how the cia operates they
operate you know completely in the shadows and they operate on the b. hast of the business interests i mean united fruit didn't want arbenz around before they got rid of them so on and on and on this goes back decades and decades and decades it of it's about the maintenance of empire and that's what we're seeing in bolivia where i lived in bolivia the spanish in bolivia this is the pattern and now they found lithium it believed well they had apparently and that is a huge it is the oil of the future and guess who wanted to control it and guess who they didn't want to control it even more out exactly evil morality said even though he brought poverty down in a country where no one else that i do this in was we want to control the lithium and the multinational corporations they they set the machine in motion. donald trump's former top advisor on russia has become the star of the impeachment hearings into the us presidents by rehashing an old narrative. the
impact of the successful 2016 russian campaign remains evident today our nation is being told a pass through this question and our highly professional expert career foreign service is being undermined right now russia's security services and their proxies have geared up to repeat their interference in the 2020 alexion we are running out of time to stop them run goes the it takes a look at how the co-author of $500.00 page book putin has stolen the show. you go to give it to the democrats they've tried everything to get rid of trump take him seriously you look like an idiot ignore him you look like an idiot criticize him and his ratings go up doesn't make any sense the guy seems to metabolize scandals feed off of them soothe the democrats fed him poison impeachment. that trump the president has used his office for his own personal gain the
president got caught it's pretty simple question is now who would benefit from an investigation of the funds i assume president trump put there we have it thing is for impeachment to work you need momentum and they're losing it a 1000000 less americans chewed in for the 2nd round of impeachment hearings and trump's ratings have gone up according to gallup i'm telling you it doesn't make any sense soo confused are they that they've reverted to their base behavior animal instinct i found out that vladimir putin doesn't want me to be president so . i've learned a lot about the season early on from the series that we're going to be in hell perhaps related to me a putin also wants you to stop sniffing strangest hair but hey that hasn't stopped you has it joe putin kremlin moscow russia. we've heard it all before
everyone has so desperate of a that they turning to the spiritual the democrats are making a sacrifice crucifying one of their own to beat trump it's unfortunate that we have someone on a stage who is attempting to be the democratic nominee for president united states . criticizing people on this stage affiliated with the democratic party let's also talk about judgment or the. foreign leaders you mentioned meeting. that i would not have sat down with a murderous dictator like that. that should do it that should beat trump smearing a fellow democrat and alienating her voters they did the same thing to bernie in 2016 remember even rigged a primary against him it didn't work so they're doing it again only logical plus
r. t. apparently favors tool c. a think tank analyzed thousands of pages on dot com built graphs and charts and plots and came to the conclusion that russia would prefer a u.s. president that wouldn't want to launch missiles at moscow you know have a saying goes you can't teach an old dog new tricks and add seems to be the problem with a democrat sticking to old tricks to cliches all i can say is fellows good luck winning that election story in an arkansas newspaper has led to more concerns of russian trolling all because of the use of some odd looking punctuation. narrow diversion quotation mark.
i'm pretty sure the publication just put in whatever looked like an error in an attempt to instruct readers to click on the article link which came immediately after the error if they meant to use it to indicate a russian quotation mark where is the other quotation. milt is the amount of fact checking the correspondence that here keep up the professional work. we use those quotation in french in town and keyboards as well so this is occurring in place for languages. it had jumped terror to me speaker and keyboard user as a quotation mark and looked like other sloppy attempts by russian trolls to push stories i apologize for the mistake and am explaining it in the interests of full transparency.
princes strict rules on religious displays a spot another hour after retirement home shut its doors to an elderly catholic nun for wearing her veil start off reports from paris. a nun from eastern farms had been learning how to hold more than 70 years she didn't plan on changing that when she decided to cash in her retirement plan and move into a nursing home that didn't happen because the facility refused to provide her with its services because the she in turn refused to take religious clothing and that hasn't gone well with the religious community here i do not see how our nuns veil can be described as offense. give it is not a symbol of submission but a symbol of consecration but the nursing home says there will be no appeals the case is closed they say all religious apparel is banned at the facility to abide by france's more than a century long reign of secularism a small chain with
a cross there was the only bit of faith the nun was allowed to physically take with her into the home shedding the rest at the gates the nun refused the place we offered her and didn't want to accept the house rules that are the same for everyone within our homes our residents may have preferences and beliefs and they should be respected with regard to secularism all ostentatious religious symbols cannot be allowed in order to guarantee everyone's tranquillity christianity phobia is a relatively new phenomenon born out of france's strict secularism there's another one you might be moved from illegal with islamophobia the muslim community in france has been fighting for the right to wear their religious clothing in public for a long time. from the carbs to borchers to burqini the muslim swimwear for women france has been through countless scandals around
islamic clothing christianity has been steering clear of this controversy until now . father lawrence style of body on a theology teacher sam but our college of paris says that the incident exposes a growing fear of religion. france has to work very quickly and very hard to. discover again what history and christendom has given to the country otherwise we'll end up with as this poor sister since we fear in our society in french society the place of religion we fear it because we know it's powerful it's powerful in people's mind. so any type of sign any any sign of a religious sign whereby a christian is being banned we have reduced you know country the meaning of religion to a political force so i felt really sorry because it's shown the point of.
stupidity where we just arrived at that moment. well western media obsess over alleged ukraine ties to us politicians here has been exposed in a far more disturbing international terror case the 2nd islamic state leader in 7 days it's been detained in the country has the story. ukraine has revealed that it's arrested of russian citizen who was on interpol's wanted list and this happened on thursday and told me which is a city in the northwest of the country and now let's just take a very quick listen to the exact reasons that were given for his arrest the man was wanted by interpol for murder according to the information we have the detained person was a member of the terrorist organization islamic state in fact one of its leaders who lived on the territory of ukraine to escape responsibility for the murder all the
information that we are getting is coming from police authorities in the region where he was apprehended now they say that he is called oh we do not have his full name yet and he is a 30 year old male from dagestan which is a republic bordering georgia in the north caucasus it's interesting because the head of the operation said that this particular arrest was part of a wider clear out of potentially dangerous individuals which by implication means that this is not a one off case and we can actually look to recent events for confirmation of that just last friday for example ukrainian authorities announced that they had detained a georgian national by the name of shiny that he was a top commander he fought alongside. in syria before escaping to ukraine via turkey last year and he actually continued to coordinate terror attacks
from his house not far from here of his detention was part of a joint operation between ukraine and georgia and the u.s. and it was following. the shawnees arrest the questions were raised how it was possible that a man who had allegedly held the role of isis deputy minister of war had managed to go unnoticed or at least untouched for such a significant period of time really right under their noses. some talks not just about inability to cope with this kind of high level terrorist but actually it's willingness to do so critics have drawn attention for example to how there are certain inefficiencies within the ukrainian government which almost facilitate these kinds of dangerous individuals to slip through the net they drew the attention for example of to the holes in the legal system and law enforcement to a very long i think passport trade as one of course unfortunately to corruption
which is an endemic problem in the country and which of course allows for systematic abuses of power and just as a final point it's worth noting that this is not just an issue of concern for ukraine but also for its neighbors as we know since 2017 ukraine has enjoyed visa free travel regime with e.u. countries so if it continues to apparently offer an undisturbed refuge for such people it could potentially be exploited as an ideal stepping stone for those who want to harm european nations so clearly a warring and significant issue but this latest arrest hopefully a step in the right direction towards tackling the border problem. the former head of the terrorism security office chris phillips who's never stops planning attacks on the west despite his defeat in syria. i don't get only ukraine that i've got a problem with this i think other countries as well and of course if you have free
movement across borders anywhere then you're you're leaving an open door for terrorists and criminals that operate this round was a very senior person who knows this but there are many others that have also 'd managed to escape the battlefield and go back to their countries so this is a worldwide problem obviously he's managed a movie he managed to claim that he was being killed so the the or thirty's were on the back foot so it's really concerning it will be interesting to know where he has gone who he's been communicating with whether or not they've been setting up the cells of terrorists dotted around europe and across the world to bring this back they know they never this is the end of ice it's this this latest battle in syria is not the end of isis they consider it part will all go to war and our war that they're going to bring to us i think in the in the coming years ahead. the u.k. has defied a u.n. deadline to give back an overseas territory tumorous the prime minister of the
indian ocean island says the london's failure to hand over the child ghosts islands makes pregnant illegal colonial occupier an overwhelming majority the un general assembly voted in may to give the u.k. 6 months to return the islands but but insists that the vote is non-binding despite it being backed by a un high court ruling. the shah goes archipelago which the international court of justice found we've knew dissenting voice to be an integral part of the territory of lucius the united kingdom is not in doubt about our sovereignty over the british indian ocean territory contrary to what has been said today it has never been part of the republic of militias. russia says that britain forced it to give up the islands in exchange for independence in 1968 but the u.k. insists agreed to the move in exchange for benefits and will see the archipelago when it's no longer needed for defense the us maintains
a military base there. the leaders of check or soon groups are divided on whether to stay part of britain. we want to remain a british overseas territory and we want to be resettled in the homeland our search we want these countries these islands to belong to us we the natives of these islands this is our right and this is our homeland and we don't want it to be given to another state our people want to be resettled 1st then we will make
a decision whom we want to be governed by and in future we of course we would want to become an independent country as far as of you're concerned right now we want to remain a british overseas territory we need to put pressure on them. you can't govern man just deal what he will do for us we have been fighting back in fact think for a long time 50 years have passed what did you get government did nothing we need to find we need to stick if we need to bring them to the march of government he's fighting for this super anti you case fact for the same cause we can't concern we want our rights because our right has been nice we want our country back we don't know which we have who we we've corm it will be but we would like our country
back. tens of thousands taking to the streets of colombia's capital bogota to protest against the right wing government of us spanked president. started as long as the peaceful march led to clashes with police. trade union students opposition parties and indigenous groups challenge to case economic social and security policies a festive atmosphere turned ugly when a small group of people saw the telling projectiles of the police who responded with tear gas to do case right wing government a key u.s. ally has been on the wane since his election 1000 months ago police say that around 200000 for the part in protests in several cities. nicholas o'donovan reports. what started as a normal union strike has morphed into one of colombia's biggest anti-government
protest in recent times tens of thousands of people marching across the country and here on the streets of bogota at this point the rain thousands are still marching the gates the government towards the city center everything from students to union leaders to community leaders and indigenous people protested as we say against. case government this strike was announced before the full the protests in other latin american countries like chile or ecuador but people here are telling us that they've been inspired by those movements 5000 police officers here we've also have members of the military but the government says that we can't say that colombia is militarized because these soldiers just protected strategic buildings so that's the picture of the ground what about the reasons what's best hind this massive strike
well it's a very differently to what happens in other latin american countries for instance and in chile we had the public transport in ecuador we had the subsidies to gas here it's not a specific mission. it's more of a wide range of actions being taken by the government that people here don't like it all started with a tax reform and an intention to reform the pension system but it's not only the neo liberal austerity measures this also the handling of the peace process or the failure in handling the peace process that has led to more violence in the country recently we had 8 minus being killed in the government led attack and all of this. has produced this state of discontent among colombians so as we say the protest speed massive is the mainly peaceful but it said then
a very clear message to pace government here in colombia nicholas o'donovan. professor of latin american studies done told us about the rallies for its columbian masses this country of 40000000 compazine known singing in workers in indigenous who are today marching in flying the y. follow flag in solidarity with the people of bolivia ecuador chile haiti everywhere that there are things not just to go up against the colombian state. they're up against the u.s. sponsored colombian state the $265000000.00 in u.s. military aid that was sent this year under trump even more in past years with colombia so we shouldn't forget that there's 9 u.s. military bases over a 1000 u.s. military soldiers stationed in colombia 12 u.s. military bases in panama with the way there's also protests scheduled for later
today against the same neo liberal agenda so the colombian people are fighting back not just for their interest but for the interests of humble people across the world . but with more often i see them. a little bit ago a. lot of today's it is essential plugs support during the filming of the cabin right.
welcome to sophie shevardnadze genetics and biology are promising to bring about revolutionary changes in the way humans lead and as we learn today how to change our d.n.a. i mean the possible implications are just mind blowing from getting rid of diseases to programming on born babies today i sat down with revolutionary scientist and molecular engineer dr george church to talk about all of that. professor george church thank you very much for being on our program today so genome sequencing and gene editing is something like the internet in the eighty's on the brink explode those are your words so do you mean to say that soon genome maddening will be just like surfing the news on a sunday morning with a cup of coffee.
