the the in the stores, the shape of the week here in our international mass rallies and statues toppled, canadians vented their anger after the remains of more than a 1000 children are found at former indigenous residential schools run by the catholic church. julian, a sorry mark to his 50th birthday behind bars, as a witness in the case against him, apparently admits to lying to some saying it could be a crucial blow to american legal action against which we found her. and the highly infectious delta strain of the corona virus plunges russia into a new wave of the pandemic and prompts moscow to make coven status passes. mandatory, if you want to access restaurants and cafes,
8:01 pm
we put the new system to the test time officially inside a co that free. i get get rid of the mask ah, broadcasting lab direct from our studios in moscow. recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program, this is our to international and canada has seen anger spilling onto the streets with mass rallies after the discoveries of the remains of more than a 1000 children. at former indigenous residential schools. cities cancelled national day celebrations, while the winnepeg in winnipeg, the statues of queen victoria and queen elizabeth the 2nd were toppled and defaced the well, the british wales are seen to represent kennedy's colonial past,
8:02 pm
and red paint was dogged over the fallen statue of queen victoria, while the british prime minister spokesperson condemned any de facing of statues of the queen, and he's alex mahalo, which looks back at what led to the latest anger discovery after discovery. the latest one was on one's day 182 bodies found in cranbrook, british columbia. this is close to a residential school. they use basically a radar that looks underground. and that's where they found these people in unmarked graves that adds to the initial finding, which happened on may 27th. and we can loops british columbia at another residential school of $250.00 people as young as 3 years old in mon, mark grace, and then of course, the scotch one, which was the biggest find so far, 751 people. so you add all these numbers up over a 1000 people found, but we have over 130 schools like this across canada. ah,
8:03 pm
you learn not trying. you just get harder. and yeah, you learn to shut down every day was you were in constant fear that your hope was that it wasn't you today that was going to be the target, the victim. the program started in the late 18 hundreds and laughed at all the way up to 1996. when the last school was close, that 150000 native children ripped out of their families, arms and put into the schools. they were forced to go to the schools, the royal canadian mounted police were complicit in that they were the ones that would take the children from their families to the schools that were run primarily by the catholic church at about 60 percent, but also anglican protest and other smaller churches across the country, the levels of the abuse that we found at these schools would absolutely mind blowing. i just have to read something for you quickly. this is a $907.00 report for the department of indian affairs and called the bryce report
8:04 pm
documented 40 to 60 percent mortality rate in the schools mostly of tuberculosis and then a 90 to 100 percent of these children. this is unbelievable, suffered either from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. we have rates of 80 percent abuse on these 1st nations because of this legacy left behind by these churches at the canadian government, which funded all of these programs. so canadians are demanding that the government do something about this. we did have a back in 2015 a commission that said that this was a cultural genocide. they did very little about it up to now. now people are demanding of the prime minister. do something about it and the prime minister, as well as indigenous communities, are demanding an apology from the catholic church. i really hope that this time it will lead towards this hope coming onto the canadian soil and apologizing apologizing directly for the responsibility that the catholic church shares in this
8:05 pm
part of our history now. and what is believed to be a reaction to what has happened in the past month or so is the churches are being burg, down on need of communities and close to residential schools. we've heard of 5 in british columbia to and berta at one all the way at the other side of the country in nova scotia. ah, ah. the prime minister has said that destroying places of worship is not the way to go, obviously. but at the same time, canadians are looking at the situation in a much broader perspective. hopefully canada will do more. and that's exactly what canadians are demanding. at this point. please say the church fires mentioned there could be arson and related to the discovery of the great canadian prime minister
8:06 pm
called the alleged attacks. unacceptable and wrong. we heard from the indigenous community about the gruesome discoveries of the children's remains. it was a genocide and you look at it, the whole point of the residential school was to take the indian out of the indian to get rid of our language, get rid of our culture and children died. every 1st nation person is feeling the impact of the residential schools. my grandmother attended my grandfather attended thankfully, my mother didn't have to attend, but she still feels the impacts on it on a daily basis. it is a developed country. it is a one you know, a g 7 time treat, but internally, canada, it's, we're at a point where we're reflecting internally, the green sites are the conversation, but the impact of colonization, of ripping apart families. and today we are seeing the aftermath of that. it brings
8:07 pm
out anger in some it brings out frustration. moving forward. what we have to do is truth and reconciliation call to can to action. we implement those, we will be a way more developed country within one generation. there are some tough days ahead of us, but the end goal is to co exist as, as we should have at the beginning. hundreds of joint sanchez, supporters gathered in london and new york on saturday to celebrate his 50th birthday. but it is the 3rd birthday, the wicked sandra has now spent in a british jail. washington is seeking his extradition to us for publishing classified material, and if found guilty, he could be sentenced to up to 175 year. however, a major witness in the u. s. case against him has reportedly admitted to giving false testimony. an icelandic newspaper says secret door for their son told them
8:08 pm
that his key allegations that astonished against asked him to have computers and phones are not true. this activity was sets include attempts to hack into the computers of members of parliament and recalled that conversations in fact, thought us. and now mr. stunt in that the songs never asked him to hack or access phone recordings of m p. 's. while the revelations are seen as a major setback for washington with some calling the admission fatal to americans case against assange, with fellow whistleblower edward snowden among them. this is the end of the case against julian sanchez. if biden continues to seek the extradition of a publisher under an indictment poison top to bottom, with false testimony admitted by its own star, witness the damage to the united states, reputation and press freedom would last for a generation. it's unavoidable. we spoke to a friend of julian, a son who gave him refuge back in 2010 british journalist von smith says the
8:09 pm
charges against the weekly founder put journalism on the wrong side of the law. he's got some serious health issues which should have been getting worse and worse and worse psychologically. he's under extraordinary stress as you can well imagine . he's had one of the most horrible lockdown that i think anybody we could possibly think of you know, mostly in solitary confinement. up to 23, out of the day he's got very poor communications. they went less in public communicate downside, well, it's very hard for him to defend him. so you think it's absolutely devastating to the case again. i, you know, it also completely undermines america's case. but one has to observe that this was brought up under the previous administration, must be in the current administration on the biden, bearing in mind the previous administration on the obama. so not to follow this procedure against junior sounds because they were aware of the impact it was going
8:10 pm
to have on journalism. these charges criminalized basic dental practices, which is why it's so surprising that the british american media don't change. we're making much of what's happening with philadelphia and these are devastating. he is basically said, he's explaining how he law to frame julian to try and say to say, then skin, mainstream media, who spent a lot of time writing negatively about do, haven't really picked up on this for dobbs and story and you know, on shots about, but i feel like it's there obliged to talk about the 6 is absolutely central to so that their own ability report moscow intensified is covered vaccination campaign last week with the highly contagious delta strain of the virus dominating new infections. booster jobs were initially meant to be given every year. however,
8:11 pm
because of the current surge in cases, doctors are now advising a new shot every 6 months. mayor of moscow says, both being and it's light fair and are suitable for the job. now the capitals campaign comes as delta strain infections jump nationwide. the country's case load more than doubled over the course of june and peaked at 25000 daily infections by this morning of those moscow registered in more than 7 and a half 1000 new cases. the rise has prompted the city to introduce a mandatory covered status pass that grant access to public places and to qualify. you need to either be vaccinated have antibodies or a negative p c r test. that is no more than 3 days old. onto constantine arose, cough, put his own q r code to the test. this is my q r code. something party goers now can't live without in moscow since this has become one of the only way to get into a restaurant or bar here. so i decided to investigate how the system works and whether it actually does it all. so let's now go to
8:12 pm
a couple of places here together and start off with one of the most popular place in my neighborhood, and usually have lots of customers all day long. i also brought my son along. he hasn't been vaccinated and he hasn't had cobra. so he doesn't have a q r code. so we're going to see if this is going to be a problem. there was a line outside find out what's going on. so i think i got a note that you are not saying there's nothing in the guy that is for them. well, it turned out my local fast food restaurant was serving, take away orders only no indoor. danny was allowed regardless of vaccination status . when you go, when you pay for them, and you said apparently not every
8:13 pm
restaurant in moscow was able to organize q r code scanning in time. anyway, there was another place across the street. we decided to check out more than that for them. this time the staff did have the necessary equipment, which is just a regular smartphone by the way. but there's something weird happened. mike, you are code didn't work. the i had to go to a government website, download the q r code again, and it finally worked. but then something else came up in moscow, you need to show your vaccination certificate it along with an id. i had a password on me, but my wife had only a drivers license. even though have an a password is not a rule. we were denied indoors service. they only let us sit outside on a terrace. bottom line is that we were denied to dining at the 2nd place this
8:14 pm
morning. so i'm gonna keep looking for the right spot. and finally, we managed to get through the at this turkish restaurant. everything went on without a hitch. they also let our 8 year old unvaccinated kid in as we were told young children are allowed inside if their parents have valid q r codes that fishery inside a free zone. and i can't get rid of the mask. yes. once you're inside your back to the free coven era, no masks or social distance are required. as you can see, it's pretty deserted. i think that we are the only customers at the moment. i know there are 2 more people out there, but otherwise it's pretty empty. for vaccinated customers,
8:15 pm
the immediate benefits are quite obvious. now, there are always plenty of tables available and you can enjoy. where's this undivided attention for reference owners though? things might not look as a be a google 3015 was the fact that this system has been introduced across moscow. so people accepted the come prepared and even say that they have a cure code trade away. but at the same time, it's summer now, and they still prefer to relax on the veranda. the fact that we have some are veranda helps. of course, guest without cure codes, concede there. but it's too early to talk about how many customers we've lost because of this policy, we have to wait and see what it shows on the. so this is apparently something both citizens and restaurants will have to become used to at least cove. it is still raging, and even though a couple of months ago, people were extremely skeptical about getting the job. in the past couple of weeks, moscow authorities receive more than 80000 vaccination requests a day fuel the hopes that one day moscow will eventually escape from cove its loss
8:16 pm
custody, raska r t from moscow. now, while imposing new demands on businesses, moscow is also rewarding people who are sticking to the rules. restaurants following to our code policy will receive subsidies on their utility bills. and the 1st 100 businesses to have 60 percent of their staff fully vaccinated will also get money from the government. looking at the bigger picture, the delta strain has spread to about $100.00 countries. in france, it accounts for 20 percent of new cases and in britain is almost 100 percent. we spoke to the world health organizations, special envoy for covert about how best to manage the risk of the virus at the moment. we call be 100 percent. certain the vaccine use that we have at the moment will protect us against all possible versions of this virus. so therefore,
8:17 pm
we should be accepting that vaccines will reduce our risk of getting covered quite honestly, actually box. they're not going to guarantee and therefore, what we're saying is huge vaccines as part of your control effort. but also, why not just keep going with the physical distancing the one me to row? why not keep going with ma squaring? why not keep going with really good hygiene? why not keep going with isolation when you're sick? why not keep going with protecting elderly people and those who got other diseases with vaccines because they are really good protective? if there is the perception conveyed to the population of any country, that basically we're all going to say we're going to break the 3 break free and we're not going to be troubled by the virus. and there's no turning back. it's
8:18 pm
a bit of a hostage to fortune just suppose this far as takes advantage of the freedom day and really spreads an awful lot and you end up with a situation of a lot of sickness and considerable debt plus distress. and if somebody is running a towel, running an airline, no running an airport or running a festival. if day you can have quick tests at the entrance and then quick daily checkups with tests again for participants go, it would make such a difference. so yes, i'm super keen on frequent, reliable, inexpensive tax. it just to them talks any regret and it doesn't exist still come into program. american celebrate independence day, traditionally, a time for the nation to come together. but this year they're more divided than ever with even key symbols of the events. splitting the country that so much more
8:19 pm
extra break is art international. ah, ah, ah, ah, me rather driven by a dreamer shaped by those in
8:20 pm
me dares think we dare to ask me. ah, welcome back. this is our international. now parade's and fireworks are being held across the u. s. to mark independence day, but the very symbols meant to bring the nation together and stand for unity are also splitting people parties. but i'd love to have have commentary. nothing bought americans as close together as the 4th of july, day of unity of solidarity of coleman spirit,
8:21 pm
who it was my the american thought that they had an identity to cute, to find america. i defy you to tell me what constitutes an american can do it with incredibly diverse democracy. what makes it american mal apache? not even the president knows that being a patriot, as it serving in the marines, paying taxes as it waving the flag, putting up the stars and stripes in the pool outside your house. know that according to the media, just might make you of fanatical republican today flying the american flag from the back of a pickup truck or over a lawn is increasingly seen as a clue all be. it's an imperfect one to a person's political affiliation and deeply divided nation. while they're right about division, which media cause flat and inflamed in the name of ad revenue. but it's everywhere . people see everything differently. everyone has an opinion that they'd rather
8:22 pm
than rather die than give up. everything is a battle ground, race, religion, booting sex, orientation, police, immigration, and war. there is almost nothing left that americans agree on, have the flag symbol of unity as now a symbol of oppression. it is chatted dated, divisive and incorrect. it no longer represents democracy and freedom. it no longer represents all of us. it's not fair to be forced to honor aid. it's signed for a new flag. what if the flag looked like this? and just like that out of the she the so you can see it a little way down the road protests and counter protests about changing the flag rods and shootings and enmity. because one person's idea is abominable to another. you're found on an idea. we hold these truths to be self evident,
8:23 pm
that all men and women are created equal, endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, life, liberty, to pursue happiness, sounds corny, to america. we learn this in grade school. high school, an idea that seems to have expired. what do they learn in schools now? critical race theory, the idea that white is bad, the idea that no, we were created equal, but we don't believe equal. and that racism has tainted every aspect of institutional america. that's what they learn in school. now, a far cry from created equal and you talk about critical race theory, which is pretty much going to be teaching to how to hate each other. how to look into is pretty much all going down to, you know, deliberately, pcs. why do you right here? got it better. you because he why you go partly so why? oh, the black people are all down. how do i have to know what degree the senior,
8:24 pm
oprah, your black or white or anything doesn't matter if you're black, white, brown? yeah. right. and in how we treat people is based on who they are and what are you in tomorrow? this is, this is how choosing things right in critical race nearing want to in now we my children. it's not going to happen. one couldn't only wonder how the land they going to go off the asian americans next. and then latino is paps, maybe a few decades down the line and sick twisted already. they'll turn it against african americans. at the end of the day, america is bursting at the seams. it's. it's not over population. it's over belief where everyone has an idea that they think is better than everyone else's, and they demand that people respect it. here is the real problem. you have people
8:25 pm
to day, independent of any history saying we want to have the black national anthem. maybe we want to have the l g, b, g, q, i a national anthem. and you have people in corporate structures in various governmental entities who say, fine, we'll do whatever you want. we'll recognize that to some people. america is whatever they say it is. shake a rorschach test. you look at a cloud, you see a bunny. i see a dog. it's our interpretation. that's where we are right now. and we're going through this i guess his version of it words, we make it up as we go along. and i, to me, in my humble opinion, i think this is, this is temporary, i think we always go through this in one form or another. and eventually things
8:26 pm
will somewhat shuttle down. but it's, it's most disconcerting to some people who believed that there was a degree of solidity and permanence to american history. but to other people make it up as they go along. the white house has tried to cash in on the 4th of july celebrations by claiming credit for cheaper barbecues, but not everybody is hot on the claim to saving i'm just $0.16. i mean, cook out the sheer ketchup on the news. according to the farm bureau, the cost of a 4th of july barbecue is down from last year. it's a fact. you must heard hot dog. the biden economic plan is working and not something we can all rubbish. look what i got from the grocery store with the $0.16 . i saved. thanks biden. wow. what will we peasants do with that big 16 samson savings the possibility of their endless. when would $0.16 have been
8:27 pm
a significant savings? $823.00. hotdog prices may be down, but inflation has driven us gasoline prices up by a dollar since last year, like tricity and overall food prices are on the up as well, with inflation at its highest since 2008. however, the white house thinks that people should focus on the 3000000 jobs created since biden came to power. have think $0.16 a barbecue has more of an impact on people's lives than gas being a dollar more this time. i would say, if you don't like hotdogs, you may not care of the reduction of cost. you don't have to look up your find, but i think i reduction. i will say that what we are most focus on is the fact that we've created now more than 3000000 jobs since the president took office. my political analyst, dakota, lily told us that the white house boasting about saving $0.16 does show just how out of touch it really is. there hasn't really been a president in a very,
8:28 pm
very long time that has taken the const taken into consideration. the effects of their policy is on the workers, and i think that's the most important thing to take away from this place. they really think that $0.16 is amazing, and we're going to go out to the streets and, you know, show our love for president biden. over $0.16, i haven't seen much effort on the, by an administration to pursue any sort of economic policy that i think will have any bearing right now would be a fabulous time for federal jobs guarantee. universal job guarantees. you know, we have unemployment numbers, they talk about the 3000000 jobs that they've created, but how long has under employment and people who are working part time that want to work full time. you know, there's real unemployment numbers are much higher there, at least in the double digits. and even at the same time, does it really matter if $3000000.00 jobs are created? if they're all created at mcdonald's, wendy's target and walmart, not really. people want gainful employment and the federal government could provide
8:29 pm
that, but they chosen not to even s. the economy is growing at an accelerated pace. even if you know the economy, g, d p is expanding. how much does that actually translate into people's everyday lives? in about 30 minutes in 30 seconds, i will be back with another look at your weekly. this is hard to international. stay with us the ah to don't to leave. you will move a new he will tell when she gets home ready to love. ah me. as soon as she
8:30 pm
will grow up and the study due to me to teach julia control the traditional moving machines, etc. if you see the one you need from me was over. she could have said for me to last with metro. okay. sure. yeah. so this is what i need from the new new new which is what friday. if you give me a call back, i do see executable supple wants it all set up for me. i got it up on that got me.
