10:05 pm
shortage of food and water. mom from allah. i came from the northern jo john province. there was ongoing, brutal fighting and we could only save ourselves and fled to cobble and my mother, myself and some people of the town. car condos, and bergland provinces came here to the park. we have all fled to fighting. there is no food and no water. these families have very worried because they have no idea what to do with lead from the hero proven is due to have the fighting. many other families also fled and living in bad conditions. if dissertation continues like this and have gotten if they want us to return, they should support us and give us weapons so we can defend our country as we have lost our family members during the case of war. now as african women, we should get weapons and fight. we discussed the latest developments and i've gotta stand with kennestone from the hamilton and coalition to stop the war. and couple journalist belong,
10:06 pm
worry the fact that the americans need almost 5000 us troops just to evacuate thousands of 5 lines in the embassy. it tells you where on the sun is after 20 years of massive investment in blood and treasure, not only by the americans, but also by the international community. and every time you hear to these countries tell the citizens to leave us on as soon as possible, especially cobble those type of messages. it is terrorizing one. so we're already very fearful of what could happen. we heard. busy a lot of gotten fired from the police chelsea area, it's in p d 12 where the biggest prison is and everyone thought that this was a target bonus hack inside the city of cobble. so it did terrorize the local population, especially when a couple years we're flying over the prison. then we were told by going to
10:07 pm
officially that there was a problem in the counter narcotics wing of the prison. so you can imagine the impact of what is happening around the country. so it's not a success story. and it's also not the time you know, that the americans could blamed africa needed africa. leaders could blame, you know, the americans. i think everyone has lived down the avalon people, and now we can see even more bloodshed and sufferings if sci fi does not come any time. so clearly, washington did miscalculate and it scrambled to increase troop levels. to compensate for that, the u. s. should never have been, and nato should never have been in afghanistan in the 1st place. this was a unilateral and illegal invasion and occupation that took place without the approval of the un security council. now today, a, the united states, a staging
10:08 pm
a withdrawal, a retreat from afghanistan, and they're doing it in a unilateral fashion. again, they didn't use the help that they could have called upon from russia, china, india, iran and pakistan. and those regional and, and asian powers to organize an orderly withdrawal and the creation of a stable government in kabul. that one that might have been a government of national unity or a power sharing arrangement or coalition government. instead, the u. s. deliberately left mass. and this map right here shows just how much after the territory is now under telephone control, including 2 thirds of provincial capital and of the biggest cities outside the capital such as kandahar where they have reportedly seen hundreds of weapons and vehicles as well as large amounts of ammunition islamists ramped up their offensive
10:09 pm
in april, after the u. s. president announced he was pulling out troops earlier. we spoke to people in missouri sheriff, the 4th biggest city in afghanistan, it is currently fallen under the control of the telephone mother. and i came to missouri sharif to defend my people that the taliban came here to ruin the country . they invite people to an islam does not really as long as if they think that they are also afghans that should come and negotiate with us. or if they want to take power, they should go for elections and make people vote for them. but the only thing they actually want is to ruin afghanistan and our people jenco sector. then they got whole people are fed up with the war and unemployment. and i've been jobless for 2 months already. we are tired of fighting, we want peace. people are fleeing from a dentist in there, go into iran and turkey because of the situation here. they are selling their houses at half the price just to be able to leave. i wanted to do the same, but it ran close their borders because of the warren of ghana,
10:10 pm
samsung dissing them or how much of our life was ruined because of this war. how the people escaped, but those who had no money had to state these attacks scare our families because they always happen at night. people cannot even go to hospital and just because they don't have money. and even those who eventually go often don't get proper care in the head of an italian group, working enough dentist and to promote women's rights. it says washington has left civilians in the lurch. the main concern now is to ensure security for us where and the afghan women and children, they're taking care of our representatives, preoccupied with the faith of women's rights, which they've been fighting for for 20 years. earlier today we decided to shut down our office and hide documents, so that the women under our watch can be tracked down. we will continue doing our job on the cover from home, telephone trip to just 11 kilometers from kabul. it seems that they're not encountering any resistance. i'm afraid the total present in the caps was just
10:11 pm
a matter of days. probably they're waiting until the definitive pull out of us troops scheduled for august 30th before capturing the capital of furthest seeing that with the u. s. and need to withdraw, afghans got the opportunity to run their country on their own. however, in fact, it turned out to be american, the west established a puppet government, which could not care less about afghanistan. and today's officials are only concerned about saving their lives. i think the americans could have handled better their retreat and thought more about ordinary people and their rights. nato has also expressed concern about the tele bonds blitz and reaffirm support for the afghan government and security forces r t u. case simon, right, gives us his take on that. now, his american troops and the 9, so i long as it drives along for the ride, pulled up, i've got installed last month on the 20 years of bombing by the way, and i'll be honest. i haven't gone well. and on friday the 1st city fell to the
10:12 pm
child and started on we've seen like a domino effect. 9 other provincial capital in rural areas falling under child control, us in so actually think the combo might move within 90 days. they say that happened by next week. in fact, some nato countries are actually sending troops back to get their citizens out. already, you want the visual metaphor for america 20 years in the tunnel, driving us blind humvees that they just took from the afghan forces. george washington prepared his bonds. big got a fight for themselves. fight for their nation. nice one that will do it. i'm sure they caught your rallying cry on the evening. news and laska go over. all president's response to the renewed misery of the average person is i do not regret my decision. i'm sure he doesn't. he's not the one to can down the power to contain
10:13 pm
a bond course lane is. yeah, they are dragging the dead through the streets as a warning to anyone who get some report suggests that us officials, i mean cool by surprise, the speed at which time abandoned me back in underlining what we'll kind of know already. the american policy absolutely mastered the element of surprise. fortunately, no one told washington that the enemy supposed to be surprised last year, un report at the ready, preparing position. when foreign troops leave proving that age or piece of military wisdom, if you're going to retreat, it will be best not to tell the enemy the company is in advance. this how withdrawal has been planned to trump. i could win that war in a week. i just don't want to kill 10000000 people. they could have been was i supposed say some other power coming from the white house include thank the gun government should make peace with the town to avoid civil war to
10:14 pm
the american diplomats to talk to the guns and the masses. danis, i've been talking to china and the russians, how they even going to deal with a ton of last year and lower than prison. but when it comes down to this is where they thought we spent over $2000000.00 over 20 years. we trained and equipped with modern equipment over 300000 afghan forces. how many more times american truck owners, bonds spend trillions of dollars to win a war? be surprised when it doesn't work. the site is you and report that no one seems to have read from last year. page 12 interesting is just i'm calling to is present in at least 15 afghan provinces and it's still great my time. that's closer than ever . of course, we'll probably come back britton's defense, actually that well done. everyone here for the next 20 years,

10:19 pm

something to save the forest or it will all burn. it was this year. this is how the 4th bird. this is the episode. i just kind of in breathing here. the small fire, the guys are trying to put up with their own hands. so my little piece like this burned down dozen miles of forest me me? ah, what we were told the summer would be the same as usual on the more arid. that's understandable because it happens every 5 to 10 years. we've been preparing for this, but we have now. is the try somewhere in history. we could not imagine that. this is a very serious challenge. me. me. me
10:21 pm
. ah, ah. according to new guidance, published by the scottish government, children as young as 4 are able to change their name and gender at school, claiming that it is possible to come out as transgender at any age. now schools have been recommended to support pupils if they want to transition without their parent consent. this means that trans children should be able to use whatever bathroom or changing room they choose to help the kids better understand their gender identity. schools have also been advised to suggest neutral books and uniforms, but activists, marion called her thinks it's a dangerous path to try on this is inherently flawed. through all idea ology, which is the pushing on the lobbying groups, which helps right this,
10:22 pm
this document 4 year old has no idea what the agenda is very kind of easily influencing the very easily influenced by adults and what they say around them. so gradually putting kids in boxes that's an age of 4 years old. and that you're saying, oh, well, if you're a boy and you're like you're playing with dolls, maybe you're actually trumps. these are very dangerous ideologists that we're actually, we're going in and i'm sort of being progressive, naturally betting me questions countering that. the scottish government says children are happier and learn more at school when they feel safe, respected, and included whenever they decide to transition. here's how broadcast her and former british and p, george callaway sees it, the nationalist government here, frustrated by its failure to achieve its primary goal the breakup of britain, the independence of scotland has made our turn to matters,
10:23 pm
solve sexuality and gender. in a truly remarkable way. i have, as it happens, a 4 year old school, and if the teacher wanted to take her to the park, she would have to have my consent to do so. but under this new set of regulations, if my 4 year old wanted to change our gender, her name, her personal pronouns, they wouldn't have to even inform me. nevermind. as for my consent, this decree undoubtedly rob's parents of the rights and the european human rights convention. it is absolutely illegal in my view, i'm responsible for my children until they reach the age of majority. human rights groups are kids in canada of breaking international law over the sale of
10:24 pm
weapons to saudi arabia. a report from 2 organizations also states that canada violated in arms treaty and humanitarian rights over the war and yemen. we spoke with the reports, co author be endeavored to not only analyze but refute the findings of canada's report. and come to the conclusion that canada's export of l. a. v's and other canadian made weapons to saudi arabia is actually in contravention of canada's legal obligations under the arms trade treaty to which candidate has been a safe party for a couple of years now. canada cannot permit the export of weapons to a recipient where there is a substantial risk that that recipient is going to use those weapons in contravention of human rights to facilitate human rights abuses. $2900.00 canada exported nearly $3000000000.00 worth of weapons to saudi arabia in the very year.
10:25 pm
it also signed up for an international arms treaty. and despite global pressure on the saudis, over the assassination of washington post columnist jamal shows you in 2020 canada still raked in more than a $1000000000.00 in weapons deals. but canadian leaders insist that there are strong control systems in place. and there is no risk of rights violations. much of this, of course, centers around the ongoing conflict in yemen where who t rebels, who over through the many government are up against a multinational coalition, led by saudi arabia. more than 200000. you have a nice have died since the conflict started in 2014. for 1000000 have been displaced in tens of thousands are on the brink of starvation. un warned it is the world's worst humanitarian disaster. kelsey gallagher went on to say that arm sales from canada, facilitate that war. it's been a hot complex, it's 2014 and is deemed one of the world's worst humanitarian crises happening today. and certainly can provision of weapons to saudi arabia,
10:26 pm
jose substantial risk of facilitating that conflict. and that is not just our assessment. in fact, that's actually based on the assessment of the group, the u. n. group of eminent experts on yemen who have for a couple of years now. i stated that the provision of weapons to saudi arabia is not only feeling the conflict, but last year in their annual report. they actually sent it out and directly named canada as one of the, the few countries directly named as supplying weapons and thereby feeling the violence. what's happening in the world at this hour? let's go back to our breaking news story. at least 20 people are reported dead and 7 more are understood to have been injured in a gas tanker explosion in northern lebanon. the red cross has been deployed to the area to transport burn victims, both dead and wounded, to the local hospitals there. and a number of people are understood to still be missing the cause of the blasters. as
10:27 pm
of yet unknown former prime minister sod, harvey re called for the government and president to step down over the explosion of the country. recently marked the one year anniversary of an explosion at the capitals port in a route which $218.00 people died. that was followed by the countries worst economic crisis in decades along with political turmoil and mass protests against the government. the situation was hardened by fuel shortages. the military has stepped in to confiscate, hoarded gas, and several fuel tankers were seized by people angry at those shortages course. our news team is following the situation. we will keep you updated in the future hours . you are watching our future national. we're glad have you with us. mm. i so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation,
10:28 pm
let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development only really and go into this. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk now we have easy read. i just heard that it was a healthy alternative to figure out how do we trust tobacco companies with their message that these new products are actually going to reduce? are these, these are making the tobacco tours? ah, the me the
10:29 pm
me ah son, welcome to all the parts in the beginning was the war. then the war was with god and the word was god. this opening phrase from the gospel of john is often cited by atheist emphasizing the significance of language in the abolition of the human species. but in spite of or perhaps because of the power of their words, humans have always tried to regulate. if censorship inevitable, especially in this day and age, and especially when it comes to politics. while to discuss it, i'm now joined by jonathan zimmerman, professor of history education at the university of pennsylvania. i'm author of free speech. why we should give a damn professor. it's good to talk to you. thank you very much for your time. thank you. it's good to be here. now let's start with. i'm sure purposefully i g. title of your book. why should anyone and specifically,
10:30 pm
why should any american give a damn about free speech? well, i think the reason they should give a damn it is that every great movement for social justice, every great campaign to fight oppression in his united states, was powered upon and depended upon free speech. that's really why we wrote the book to remind people about the radical uses in the radical potential of free speech. unfortunately, in my view, free speech and part of the united states has now been coded as a conservative value. and i find this ridiculous and a historic and the reason we wrote the book and the reason that you should get it down if you want to make anything better in america, you need free speech. and every campaign to do that has relied on, i think, not only in this part of the world, but also many americans. i see free speech as.
