. but the activities wife says that's just not good enough. they read all of his mouth. so they had a heads up on what was coming. they shouldn't, it's legal privilege mail, but i guess i guess they were aware he had multiple attorneys who were trying to get in touch with him for meetings about strategic matters. he answered an appeal and they're like just and other stuff in court and they just can't reach him. they're telling him that they can't francere valve his that bureaus prison lawyer is telling them that she can only let him speak to them if they have upcoming court deadlines. whereas she's not applying that requirement to any of the other inmates. we contacted officials and leading rights organizations for that. take alden got us feld's case of the european court of human rights and human rights watch both so they can comment on just for
5:09 pm
a moment here on the program. let's take a look back now and how this entire situation unfolded. i please let me know right now i needed. my family in. she has been totally medically abuse . finally, common sense prevails use . i just don't know how it's really happening. it doesn't feel like it's, it's real good to be home in

5:11 pm
myself, the prison, the us for my activism and having written, calling from prison. i've been in prison where there wasn't a lot. i've been in prisons where, you know, i was, i was pulled off the phone. what was going to interview the interview and put an issue for doing that interview and then release after investigation. you know, 2 weeks later, i was re arrested the orders in 2017 for getting interview advice after i got out of prison. no one has been involved in activism. should be tried in the us, north gosh, where there they just did that. the record of the us saw it on this is just a mentally vile. the harm should be proportionate to the sentence, not the potential harm. and increasingly, what we see, certainly in the us justice system, is this kind of trend of symbolic convictions and symbolic sentences, whereby the politicization of the justice system and what used to be due
5:12 pm
process is become increasingly clear. the sized. and i think we can see that in so many different cases, especially with the area of cyber crime or hacking, it seems that and i think maybe this just really speaks to the ability of hackers or hacked of ists to threaten the power structure which has become increasingly dependent on digital networks, we only have to look really at the julian assigned case as, as the sort of top level sort of case in this area. he is absolutely a political prisoner and it's not so much about what he did. it's about what he represents and the ability of an organization to get around the powers of the state. mm. so it's being called a,
5:13 pm
a stock warning from the united nations. it's special invoice for afghan us on it. so it's the country is just sending into a situation of catastrophe, so serious that it would have few parallels this century. meanwhile, the u. s. and the u. k. are urging that citizens just to get out of afghanistan, as i guess taliban offensive in the country sees a terror group now making sweeping territorial gains after a series of rapid advances in rural areas. in the last few weeks, the insurgents are now targeting the big cities, for example, the northern region here along the northern border. the big city of conduce, has now become a 3rd provincial capital c. in the last 3 days, the taliban has taken the governor's office and police headquarters. battles is still ongoing in some parts of that. according to reports, at least 14 people killed, including women and children. more than 30 people injured. there are scenes of total destruction and couldn't do with buildings in ruin. or in the meantime, at least $700.00 former taliban fighters were released off the group captured.
5:14 pm
another regional capital right here should have a gun right here at the northwest of the country. this all happened on saturday now where despite us bombers being sent to the country and thought us farmers along this northern border here across the central and northeast and northwest, they doing massive bombing campaigns to strike at various taliban positions. there's also heavy fighting between security forces and the taliban in another northern africa province, that of the coon or province just in the northeast, near the pakistan border. it's now left around 50000 people in the region displaced in just 60 days. or dozens of families from coon are found shelter in a local school. a women and children are making due and pretty tough conditions. and we had a chance to speak to them. money girl, the husband know wasn't we had a good life in our village. we had everything we do to the fighting between security forces and the taliban. everything has been destroyed. the bottom line
5:15 pm
that all says and the taliban detect our area, then we had to flee village. we saved only ourselves without any belongings or clothes. now we are living in this school building. and again, this is young connection to the taliban block, texas. all village around 2 months and was headed fighting with letter homes due to the fight in and out of hunger after working for tonight we arrived here. we spent the 1st night in the talk, then we came to the school. here we're facing problems. in the meantime, the capital combo right here was also allegedly, in the sites of the taliban with a number of attacks targeting government figures. a carpool has just seen the funeral of the country's government media chief. he was just gun down on friday. as folks posted for the terra group says it hadn't punished him for his quote, deeds claiming it had sent a special unit to execute the assassination. his killing came days after another target to taliban, a sold on the afghan defense ministers home in the capital. and
5:16 pm
a short time ago, i got the latest situation that a spiraling situation from local reporter fell out for the body. fall of condos city where the taliban have been able to take control of most of the city as well as government buildings come in. quick succession. the city of fall upon which is the capital of the province. just next door also fell to the taliban. and what we're also hearing from our officials in a place like condos and there are also strikes by the americans as well as by the african government. the cause of this war for ordinary ones for businesses, is simply too much. we also heard from the tall about issuing a statement in the city of telephone, instructing its fighters not to take revenge, not to torture, a new one, and not to go to people's homes. title cotton is a city which was the home of former normalized leaders and commanders who fought
5:17 pm
against the taliban in the 1990 s. these are also provinces that have provided soldiers to the african national security forces. but the worry of ordinary ones, even in a place like cobble, is quite clear. john of the americans made a bad decision because the left abruptly and paved the way for the taliban to launch an immediate attack. the taliban don't differentiate between the government and public property and infrastructure. they burned down. but also in the current situation, the withdrawal of americans is pretty very costly. for us guns, the fighting has gained the property. it spread with high intensity across all of afghan stem. i'm going to school at one time when the americans came to afghan histone, they came to defeat terrorism, but 20 years have passed and the americans haven't defeated terrorism. instead, terrorism has strengthened, regional and global terrorism has turned of can. it's down into a hub of terror. the people of afghanistan being looted and mercilessly kills and
5:18 pm
public infrastructure is being destroyed. now you're seeing people standing up to the taliban in some area as these are former normalized leaders and commanders. not necessarily only in nor in other parts as well. that gets mile hahn is fighting against them. now, 4 weeks actually in the city f head odd. as well as the african government and then the americans are carrying these strikes. but it is important to point out that urban attacks are becoming more and more regular for the taliban. we also assess that situation with us and people activist or concern. the americans are continuing their bombing in order to try and halt the taliban in advance. but it's not working and they're trying to prop up their government in kabul, such that the taliban might find it useful and important to make a coalition. ready government with them. the important thing to remember is that for the,
5:19 pm
from the point of view of the entire world is that the reach of the u. s. empire is shrinking. so now the u. s. m. part has failed in trying to subdue afghanistan, and they couldn't, couldn't continue. it's illegal occupations because it was unpopular from the very start with the afghan knees. and it was a violation of international law filled the county here on the program on our t accusations of german police brutality. the anti lockdown protests that the theory, the un special rapids on torture, saying there are grounds for an intervention about story. and many of the highlights of the past week of your, off the international headlines. we're back in just the join me every thursday on the alex silent shore. and i'll be speaking to guess in
5:20 pm
the world, the politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me i mentioned that i sat, you know, more than a month up in the last and ard, and when i got back, i had just totally reframed how great we now have it in modern life. so before i go up there, it's like i use hot running water everyday. i never thought about how great that is dr. car, but they never saw great. that was don't have to go out and walk 5 miles down hill . there was stream and bring it back up to get my water right. but after alaska, like i had to do all those things. so when i get back into my water, my modern world and i turn on the faucet and hot running water comes out and hits my hand was like, oh my god, this is unbelievable. this is the most amazing thing that i've ever that happen to me. my life, the ah
5:21 pm
good i be with us for the programs here on our feet to night. the us recently hit it self imposed debt ceiling. that's not stopping democrats from pushing ahead with an infrastructure package worth though about a trillion dollars. the senate has even silenced debate on the legislation. on top of that democrats, a feeling bullish enough to ask for another spending package, totaling about 3.5 trillion. it will all ultimately require having to increase the debt ceiling. and republicans having none of it, if they don't get more of a say on how the money is being spent, if they don't need aud, our input, when we had our help with the debt limit increase, that wrecked actually, as he is reckless plans, you will require that that sealing limits the amount the us government can oh,
5:22 pm
it was reinstated last week after a 2 years suspension. it was automatically recalibrated to equal the current debt level, forcing the treasury to cough up for government bills. a short time ago i spoke with mike kaiser, the host of the kaiser report. he told me the u. s. has no choice. it has to keep on borrowing. b, u. s. economy and conjunction with most of the west is one enormous ponzi scheme that need fresh money to keep that ponzi scheme going, if you take the contacts, you understand that 0 percent interest rate and global debt to g. d. p is over 300 percent and the ability to pay back any of these loans is virtually darrow. you can understand why. now the debt in the u. s. is going to start to become hyperbolic. and this is having an interesting corollary. and that is causing a real inflation because it's all that money printing attempting to tamp down the debt, which is causing people at the shops and the gas station. and notice that the price
5:23 pm
of living is going up per separate this way. and this is causing a real, causing a real damage in america right now. i think they're going to get to the point where they're going to eliminate the idea of it's dealing. and they're just simply going to say that we're going to engage and unlimited on encumbered money, printing, and debt creation. you can stop upon the game. there's only one way to this ends and that is through a massive default. and because the us doesn't want to experience that there are simply going to print to infinity. so the us, the us dollar becomes like that as well and all of our or other hyper inflationary currencies. and that's what we're looking at right now in the u. s. and other countries, do you think any other countries around the world are starting to scale by from the usage of the dollar? we just have to look at the usage of the dollar global. and you notice that in the last 20 years has come down every year, every 2 years has come down. russia has completely out of the us dollar. and this,
5:24 pm
that's them up to be in an interesting situation. as you see more of cooperation with china, russia, iraq, they don't want to be involved in the dollar because the us weaponized the dollar by sanctioning by interfering and swift, the global money transfer mechanism. and by playing politics and by getting in the way. so these countries that you know what we need our own system, so they're creating their own system. the un special wrapper tour on torture says there are grounds for an official intervention against police in berlin. as follows . numerous accusations or brutality against those recently protesting that's heightening of cobra restrictions. a disturbing footage has emerged from last sunday's demonstration. haverland the these images of an officer throwing a woman to the ground went viral. the berlin police confirmed an investigation is being opened up. but the head of the german police union told us criticism and
5:25 pm
pressure exerted on the officers might actually be on that. consider fordable, talked us money. i am sure that my call exactly than accordance with the law. in addition, more than 60 police officers were injured. they clearly did not stumble but suffered during the protests, which by the way, were fast and peaceful because they violated public orders. since they were banned, the police are the center of criticism and such deployments. that's something we're used to. society is becoming ever more polarized politics that cultivate anything but peaceful conversation. have come to view to, to that, and the police on right between irreconcilable fronts that are no longer ready to engage in dialogue. i know that doesn't make up police work any easier. i don't have any other opinions about this colleague say they have been under pressure and these events a lot of colleagues have been injured and that doesn't make the situation easier. we'd like to see politics being used to calm people down on all sides. around 5000
5:26 pm
people took part in anti cove. it and anti lockdown protest in berlin. last weekend we understand the 600 were a rested. officers use patterns and pepper spray against the people that are and one german lawyer we told you believes the use of force was grossly just proportional. just like the door we've seen in this video is quite shocking, at least to me. and if you assess it from a legal perspective, you'd ask yourself if there was a threat, but from what it looks, it's just an elderly lady trying to pass by the policeman. or they go next to the 10th situation, which justify the police of the throwing the lady to the ground like that. if you look at the standard legal definition of a threat, it just didn't look like one of the policemen wasn't being attacked. and there was no gross disturbance of the peace and public security that lady just wanted to pass by. from a legal perspective, the officers conduct, quote, disproportionate freedom of assembly. the constitutional rights can be restricted. for instance, in a pandemic like the one we're seeing there may be restrictions,
5:27 pm
but they shouldn't be a difference with the people have notified of their rally beforehand or not. they should be able to gather continuously to as over that pietro and on own, in the open in citizens shouldn't be in fear of being subjected to this kind of treatment when going to protest. but it wasn't just germany by any stretch, and a huge show of people power. at least a quarter of a 1000000 protesters took to the streets all across bronze to vent their anger plan for mandatory coven health passes. before the weekend in a row such demonstrations had been staged. numerous trade unions including medical groupings, every rallying their members of all these highly controversial pos for earlier in the week. people in the french capital made that feeling clear after the countries so called constitutional counsel ruled all the governments move legal. we hit the streets of paris to gauge the message. mike is in the room. we're not talking about deprivation of social right. this is going about an attempt on human rights. we're
5:28 pm
forced to vaccinate. this is real to tell terry news as all there's other than the coven health. this is divine to the french people, to cancer, vaccinated and unvaccinated. for me, it's the beginning of the software dictatorship. it is the dictatorship that the pass introduced. from next week, people in france will have to show a coven passport, just to go into restaurants, cafes, hospitals, even shops as well. in the hospitals. however, health workers that they have to be injected by next month, a seemingly perpetual series of furious rallies over the pressure to vaccinate and pandemic restrictions to so many scenes like this in late july. the
5:29 pm
money didn't even before demanded your resignation was introduced. there had been more than 10000 lay offs in french hospitals, but can the local health care system afford to lose all the since leave many people now say that they want to leave their work and not only in hospitals, if you have a closer look at what's happening now, you'll see that some specialists refused to comply with the vaccination order and say, whatever my job i choose to work as an independent specialist. so stop working on events for the past week and more have seen numerous anti cove. it anti lockdown protests all over europe and as a heated discussion on the topic right now for you at r t dot com the meantime, your weekly returns at the top of the hour the
5:30 pm
i choose the the, the the fridays off or been maybe close by the.
