2:04 am
the trail and potentially even organized crime. haiti's interim prime minister clad joseph declared a quote state of siege and haiti, while urging for com was your sex. we will open an investigation into what happened in the authors, co authors and assassins of president jovan l. no e to be brought to justice because you guys are going to you mighty ruled by decree for more than 2 years after haiti failed to hold elections, he's been accused of using armed gangs to retain control of the country and has been investigated for widespread corruption gang violence and drug trafficking has spiked in the country with food and fuel shortage is constant. under his rule. for several years, the country's been gripped by violent protests calling for his resignation. suffice to say, when he had his enemies, whether the assassination was the work of opposition forces within haiti or adversaries. outside of the country remains unclear. but it adds yet another complicated layer to a dangerous situation in a country without
2:05 am
a leader and teetering on the brink of collapse. washington has condemned the assassination with joe biden, calling it a heinous acts for haiti's and buster to the us. the attack had been well orchestrated for to do show that it is well understood the attack because there will come in those professional skills. now we're talking about message is fine. i said i was party, there would be some internal hens and campuses, but we'll leave that to investigation. meanwhile, a brooklyn bass editor, i'd hate c liberty, which is a news weekly publication, talking about the countries on its export shirt, his thoughts on the assassination. this operation there were 9 brand new nissan patrol. pickup trucks involved,
2:06 am
they clearly were very sophisticated. they knew the layout of the president's home . they knew where to go. apparently they had inside information. so this was an operation which had been clearly planned for some time. and had a lot of money behind it. so we're likely to see an upsurge and uptick of haitian refugees leaving the country. and the u. s. is going to say that this is a threat to international stability, etc, etc. and they may, they may try yet another military or military occupation of haiti, which will be the 4th. this would be something that i think would be put in gasoline on the fire. patients are very proud would be very upset to have their sovereignty trampled once again. washington has been the king maker if you will, in haiti, and in the case of a job now my weeds and his predecessor michelle marcelli, they had
2:07 am
a big hand in having them elected into office. many haitians call that an electoral kuda. tar. so washington is very interested in haiti, of chairs the island with the dominican republic. it is a neighbor of cuba right across the windward passage. so geo, strategically, it's very important. so another headline stories this thursday, years of french nuclear testing in algeria is part of this. a hard desert have left a lasting impact on locals on the environment 6 decades. now the radioactive aftermath still remains without jury denouncing power. so rich refusal to share where nuclear waste is actually buried. your chart, charlotte davinsky. it's 60 years since from a few del g area as a nuclear testing ground. but the injury is still being felt today.
2:08 am
thousands of victims contaminated by radiation, waiting for compensation. now, the old theory and government is stepping up the fight. it has accused frances refusing to handle important information regarding the sites. the french side has not technically led any initiative to clean up the sites and france has not taken any humanitarian steps to compensate the victims. many radiation victims have already died due to unknown medical conditions and causes, but of those to still survive. just a single algerian has been compensated differential therapies should at least recognize these crimes then move on to compensation. jerry, people are still counting the victims of radiation and the nuclear test for many children, still born with congenital deformities due to the variation. so it makes sense that
2:09 am
all these the compensation hospital treat the countess caused by radiation to be built at the very least limit. now another crime still effect in these people. the denial of these events, the downplaying and suppression of them, that time front submitted a false report, the un, which said that the area where the test would be carried out with an inhabited, deserted, and isolated in reality. it was an area inhabited by people. there were coastal areas with a waste, these palm trees and the various animals. this is the 1st lie. and they also said that these with another french themselves, amid these, when you click solution, that's an outcast from these explosions. the radiation are not limited to the l g b and does it spread to the african jungle and even europe. the current french president has off for a commission of memories and of truth to be established to address the countries colonial passed in algeria. but it's really, it will focus on the torture that disappear in the hundreds of thousands of deaths
2:10 am
that occurred during the war put in dependent not on those nuclear tests. so why is from dragging its feet over this particular issue ah, ah, hurry of france. since this morning, just stronger and prouder, ah, i'll carry it was the only place that france carried out such deadly testing. an independent investigation recently criticized francois deeds in hiding the devastating impacts of the nuclear explosions that it carried out. the
2:11 am
majority of which were in french holland, nisha. it said in that report, the radiation levels were up to 10 times higher than those that had been estimated by the countries own atomic energy commission. back in 2016. you can't erase 60 years of state propaganda, denial, intimidation, contempt, and arrogance with a wave of the hand deemed essential by france. that's not how local store it. my grandparents died of cancer, my mother's sister had cancer. in the age of 27, i was diagnosed with chronic leukemia, which is a radiation indeed disease that he has had fallen nations are very nice. so for us to cited to conduct tests and follow neesha because the local did not see anything wrong with the exercises ended in 1997, but there was enormous damage. there is a lot of misinformation they're trying to solve in size, many locals and i'll talk about their diseases today. my symptoms, i ruin in my life. i raise the sheer, the,
2:12 am
you and the international level. we have thousands of people in the eighty's. i talked about the radioactive impact on the population when you're not in your energy, all surroundings are contaminated and damaged. i have the wrong way off all the fact is pollination and be punished by an international court. because now we are a small country taking on france pressure led to talk at the start of july to assess the impact that those detonations had. the strong remains completely firm that there was no cover up. so far that only branch has been extended to algeria. that is likely to great with the fall out of those nuclear tests, still polluting relations between l. g. s. and paris. charlotte people, sky ought fi in paris will across the channel from there. a judge of the high court
2:13 am
in london. how suspended for 9 months old law suits filed by grunfeld towers, survivors and the relatives of those who perished in the tragedy. he's encouraging all parties to reach a settlement out of court instead of going to trial. back in 2017, the recently refurbished apartment block was consumed by unimed for no which left 72 dead. the bill shook her loss, his mother, his sister, his brother in law. on 3 nieces, the family is not be loss will priceless. they won't make any difference whatsoever to my life or anything because they were more the valuable, the families, and they will never, ever be replace council ability. you know, that's the most important for me. more than anything you know to find that the blame was. busy to be for them to be accountable for it. that's like just stuck on
2:14 am
the wrist. i don't have much faith in this is all because it's very out. date. people have go away. i really do believe we've got away with mother. but nevertheless, to keep fighting, to suit the justice. well, the reason behind the rapid spread of the fire was believed to be the exterior clubbing thousands of other buildings nationwide are still covered in the same material. the me the ah, the ah,
2:15 am
the bill shipper again, hopes, regulations will be changed as a result of the tragedy but stays, there is no guarantee. the law is a bit of a hope. they can look at prosecutor and when persecution is due and the sooner the better to even have the laws change. so people don't have to go through all we have to go for the still so much going on is there is legislation regulations all out day and need to be updated. the law. busy where, you know, it's like they got a system from them so where they protect the, the corporate, these high people in the,
2:16 am
in the pages, they're very protected by the more and then the, so be all changed and updated 6 months after the u. s. law states bid to have julian assange extradited, a u. k. court has grunted washington, the green light to appeal. the high court is also reported to have agreed with 3 of the 5 justification is that the u. s. submitted in return. the biden administration has prepared the let us on serve any prison sentence, and this is trillion homeland recording to britain's crime prosecution service. we got reaction from a thumbs, his partner stella morris, dean. i was able to speak to julian now about the decision, and you know, it's mixed because on the one hand it's been 6 months and we haven't had any news. so it's like an endless purgatory. but at the same time it doesn't here. and
2:17 am
julian's very unwell, he's happy when, when he i went with our eldest this morning. and so it's not representative when i see him. because obviously it's a, it's a one rest fight. he get off, but even bell marsh prison is a horrible place. he won his case in january. why is he even in prison? why is he even being prosecuted? there is no legal case against him. all. there is an indictment based on life. washington wants to extra time to sons from the u. k. on charges of hacking and espionage if convicted, he faces 175 years in prison. in january, a british judge ruled against his extradition over fears about his mental health. in 2019 a sound was forcibly rude by police from the ecuadorian embassy in london after quito terminated his 7 year asylum there. wiki leaks editor in chief kristin her
2:18 am
robinson, is the lead of the whole process is disgraceful. but it's a great disappointment for julius johnson for all of those, but this is continuing. one would hope that the united kingdom courts would to recognize how ridiculous this case is and not grant the appeal. this means that this will drag on for some time for a prisoner to have to wait in a prison cell for 6 months for half a year. just to get a decision of whether the appeal is a low to to his opponents or not. if drake, this decision comes on the week of the, it is revealed that the indictment like a studio does not have a leg to stand on. the key with and says retracted to the testimony and says basically the testament which was cited by the business judge
2:19 am
numerous times as truthful allegation doesn't hold true. it is a fabrication and the americans now know it. they're still continuing on this trek . the high court is not saying that they believe the argument to the states government simply saying that they are allowed to present it to the court in the appeal process. if he does not get his freedom, it is such a blow to our society and what we believe in that it is almost amount to turning off the light. so this must come to an end. and i can fence in my bones that it will be coming soon. well, joe biden signed a bill that went hand additional financial support to the government's whistleblower program. the move is aimed at improving the protection of those who report different types of violations. however, as practice shows,
2:20 am
dimitri poke takes us through. many of those people are in fact punished instead of being supported. whistleblowers, like jewish fives, edward snowden, and others have long been a thorn in the side of washington. and it seems that no matter what washington does, it just can seem to once in for all this scourge, all these pesky leakers from spilling the beans on the government's darkest secrets . when media outlet pro public dropped its bombshell week revealing how billionaires such as they those mosque, bloomberg sorrows have gone years without paying any federal income tax. what do you think the reaction was? well, from the public it was an obvious what the hell. but from the government investigation, and that's the way this story goes every single time from obama to from been now. bided. public officials don't want to address any of the leaks issues, you know,
2:21 am
as for public demand. but were there other find those responsible who dared to unveil the government's dark secrets, the united states do something to stop mister sans. we're looking at that right now . you should be treated as an enemy combatant. wiki league should be closed down permanently, indecisively, disguise a traitor, a treasonous. and he is broken. every law the united states, the guy ought to be. i'm not for the death penalty. so if i'm not for the definitely want to do it illegally shoot the son of a guys. these things are meant to be a secret for a reason. it's so that the government doesn't have to deal with it and can continue doing whatever it wants without people pestering it with nonsense like, oh, this is unfair. this is on ethical and blah blah blah. of course though, over the years, the government has tried to maintain a facade of being on their side and being supportive of the bravery of truth seekers. it is incumbent on all of us to counter these threats to
2:22 am
a free and independent media, including physical risk and arbitrary detention. we celebrate the courage of truth tellers who refused to be intimidated often at great personal risk. but that's just it. it's all a facade. things like the 2012 whistleblower protection act have essentially proven to be useless. whistleblowers continue to face the threat of internal war talia ation and possible prosecution for leaking any or reporting any wrong doing. take natalie edwards, for example. she was an official at the us treasury department. she noticed some suspicious activity reports pointed out that wall street giants like j. p. morgan chase and hsbc, among others have might have been complicit in money laundering. so she took it to the official whistleblower channels. and guess what happened next? absolutely nothing, but some people do hope that biden might be able to break this trend. why do we
2:23 am
work with congress to strengthen our whistleblower laws? so there's any federal employee who learns of an improper attempt to influence the department of justice. investigation or prosecution knows how to report it and receives full protection against retaliation. but anyone including the president. but so far these have only been words. but at the end of the day, it's not even really just up to biden, to fix this, the people leading these investigations and persecuting these pesky truth tellers are all over the executive branch. and biden's administration is literally packed with people who are there at the forefront of the crackdown on whistleblowers during the obama days. and after all, why should any of these officials allow whistleblowers to go public? it's their jobs on the line. and what we can tell from all these leaks, these people are not exactly righteous do gooders the care ticker prime minister of lebanon has worn the country as days away from
2:24 am
a social explosion. how sunday up resigned in the wake of last year's devastating blast in beirut, but has been serving a stand in pm ever since june to the failure to form a new government. and the country's currency has fallen, 90 percent, and prior to 2019 levels. and only a new cabinet can restart talks with the international monetary fund. a local journalist, outlined for us to hardships the country space. i am now standing outside one of the largest gas station located on the main road leading to 11 north pole international airports. as you can see, there are at least 2 queues, the flowing into this gas station. muse q stretch a distance of 2 to 3 kilometers. many of these people have been here since the early morning hours. it has no noun and beta, and the weights continues on its favorite, some a being given priority over others. they don't standing cues or fill the tanks in the middle of the night,

2:26 am
the problem as of $3300.00 gas stations and level in less than 20 percent are open . what we don't understand is why the companies which supply the fuel have stopped distributing petrol and diesel installations. and why the lebanese power theory ministries on doing anything about it, numbered them, of has been grappling with the worth economic crisis. it has seen and directed for almost 2 years for mission of a new government to move the country to more stable footing has also been a deadlock for a month. this house all look, look, even leeker bickering. politicians are yet to reach her as a lucian over the upcoming cabinet line up. meanwhile, the loveliest furnace the, the little house last up to 90 percent of the number 29 in value just have left around 2 thirds of lovely families struggling to put food on the table song. but we stop putting price tags on products because we pay for these products in the us dollars. and the price of the dollar is changing every day with pricing on
