ah, life must go on this thursday evening, this is our to you and to national with me real recession. welcome to your stories . so years of french nuclear testing and jerry, as part of the sahara desert, has left a lasting impact on locals on the environment. 6 decades on the radioactive aftermath . still remains with algeria denouncing paris over its refusal to share where nuclear waste is buried. i hurry for france since this morning, just stronger and prouder. ah
1:02 pm
. when i back in the 60s france carried out 17 nuclear tests in the sahara. but according to our area, it made no effort to clean out the clean up the sides and paid no compensation to any of the victims you suffered from radiation. picking up the story now from paris artes charlotte ski. the old jewelry and the government is stepping up the fight. it has accused frances refusing to hand over important information regarding the sites from refuses to hand over top, a graphical maps to determine the burial sites of the polluting, a radioactive or chemical waste which have still not been discovered. the 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
1:03 pm
recognize these crimes then move on to compensation. the jerry people are still counting the victims of radiation and the nuclear tests. many children are still born with congenital deformities due to the variation. so it makes sense that all these victims deserve compensation hospitals to treat the kansas caused by radiation should be built at the very least. another crime still effects in these people is the denial of these events, the downplaying and suppression of them. that time france submitted a false report, the un, which said that the area where the test would be carried out with uninhabited, deserted, and isolated. in reality, it was an area inhabited by people that will recall shall areas with a waste, these palm trees and various animals. this is the 1st lie. and they also said that these with test another french themselves. amid that these, when you click solutions, not test and from these explosions, the radiation was not limited to the julian deserts, but 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 country's
1:04 pm
colonial past in our area. but it's really, it will focus on the torture, the disappearance, and the hundreds of thousands of deaths that occurred during the war for independence. and not on those nuclear test. jerry, it was the only place that france carried out such deadly testing. an independent investigation recently criticized fall and damage in hiding the devastating impacts of the nuclear explosions that it carried out the majority of which were in french hall anesha. 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, an arrogance with
1:05 pm
a wave of the hand. that pressure led to talk at the start of july to assess the impact that those detonations had the strongest 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, ot see in paris. meanwhile, a woman who claims her life was severely affected by similar nuclear tests in french. polynesia says franz should pay for the damage done to generations of locals. my grandparents died of cancer, my mother sister had cancer. at the age of 27, i was diagnosed with chronic leukemia, which is a radiation indeed disease that he had fallen asians are very nice. so for us the
1:06 pm
sided to conduct tests impala neesha because the local did not see anything wrong with them. 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 are ruining my life. i raise the she, the un at the international level. we have thousands of sick people in the eighty's do i talk about the radioactive impact on the population? when you nothing, and today our surroundings are contaminated and damaged. i hope the france will pay off all the factors polynesians and be punished by an international court. because now we are a small country taking on big frans fox news. tucker carlson claims the n. s a spied home him and even leaked his private emails to journalists in the e mails. he reportedly discussed arrangements for an interview with vladimir putin authorities, caleb month, and now reports. now according to axiom z,
1:07 pm
tucker carlson was communicating with 2 intermediaries trying to set up an interview with russian president vladimir putin shortly before. busy he accused the national security agency, the n. s a, the united states of spying on him. now tucker carlson has confirmed this report on wednesday. he spoke up confirming it and went further saying that the essay had actually leaked emails in the hopes of discrediting him. here's what the fox news host had to say. why would they do that? well, the point of course was to paint me as a disloyal american. a russian operative then called that before a student of the kremlin a traitor doing the bidding of a foreign adversary. now it gets even more interesting because we had a situation where the n s a actually responded to tucker, carlson. tucker carlson has never been an intelligence target of the agency. and the honesty has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air. we target foreign powers to generate insights on foreign activities that could harm
1:08 pm
the united states with a limited exceptions. and if they may not target a us citizen without a court order that explicitly authorizes the targeting. what's interesting to note is that it's not clear who the to it immediate aries were, but if they were foreign, national, not us citizens, then the n. s a. and they would not have had to get special permission in order to spy on their communications. according to their procedures. now at this point we've got long standing critics of the n. s. a speaking up, we've gotten to len greenwald, shining in and giving his perspective. here's what he had to say. everyone should want to see the evidence about whether an essay, spite on conference e mails and leave them. that's how we will know for sure whether it happened. but you have to be staggeringly naive, a willfully ignorant to think n s a. ca haven't always done exactly this and still do. now, there are a number of journalists, the news anchors in the united states who have interviewed russian president vladimir putin. so the question is,
1:09 pm
why was tucker carlson single doubt and subject to surveillance? at this point, the n s. a reputation as a result of the edward snowden revelations and many other things that had been brought to light is certainly once again in question. now it seems tucker carlson is taking them to taska and many people who had meyer or watch tucker carlson are asking themselves questions about the new surveillance culture in america. just on the same policy or in moscow, a former police officer could become new york city. next mayor thought that he won the democratic nomination. he was picked despite a year of b. l. m. protests calling to defend the police. at the same time though, crime is soaring with new york state governor cuomo declaring a gun violence. disaster emergency. now the new mayoral candidate is eric adams. he's a 22 year old police veteran, i should say, a 22 year police veteran,
1:10 pm
excuse me, a currently serving as r, brooklyn, and barbara president, and now at the forefront of its platform as a commitment to combating that of gun violence. now we support police reform, but is actually against the funding, the police, if black lives really matter, it can only be against police abuse. it has to be against the violence that's britting apart our communities. people want to feel safe. right now they don't feel safe. crime is happening all around them. shootings are up. robberies are up, homelessness is up. they see in the subway. they don't feel safe nor subways. they see it out in the streets, in their homes, in the neighborhoods. and they want to feel safe. so this gentleman ran on a platform of public safety and making people feel safe in their resume with them. and that's it. you know, the, to find the police movement has been a large failure. demonizing and attacking cops has been a failure and people are ready for change and hopefully this is the capital is to
1:11 pm
some sort of change. it's not just new york polling shows that concerns about cry married a 4 year high nationwide. the homicide rate climbing across the us. chicago's mayor of the president for help after the city store. it's bloodiest weekend on july. the 4th with over a 100 people shot a policeman is awesome, says action is needed. the virus is right in people's faces. you can put all the crime statistics out there, say your crime is going down. you can have all the feel good moments, but people know what they see. they know they hear. and you can't deny that. so people definitely want to change. they want some sort of action to be taken. they want to feel safe. that's what's all about public safety. well, you're not going to convince someone that just finished watching someone get robbed or know about shooting is going on in a neighborhood that they're safe. they want something done. a judge at the high court in london has suspended for 9 months. all law suits filed by grenville tower survivors,

1:14 pm
bill shook again. hope regulations will be changed as a result of the tragedy, but says there's no guarantee lol is a bit of a hope. they can look at prosecutor and when the prosecutor 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 is so soft where, you know, it's like they go a system from them. so when they take the, the corporate, these high people in this, they just, they're very protected by the law. and then the,

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 a daily basis. and on some occasions, several times a day. quite everything for most here loving on the worst aspect of the economic crisis is the severe medical for to just which have left for misty shells. empty and have problem to drug stores. the shutter on many occasions, enough supply for for madison. we are in short of basically all medications, all categories. it's a disaster tragedy. a lot of people, i'm not finding them indication that these are these cues you see everywhere. they are not caused by medical crisis or petrol bread crisis. all of this is the results of the victorian base, power sharing system and the fact the crooked politicians are in bed with tradesman, both of whom are protected by so called religious figures. things will continue to
1:19 pm
west and as long as this corrupt system exists, best markers where the area was some millions demonstrates last summer, i guess government corruption which culminated in a national milestone that has what was going on on the brink born now this square is so empty, but what they cannot mcfields around the next of love and people getting ever tighter. many question will remain that way for much longer reporting for our team . also on beta with it is off he international. so limpid host, said he, tokyo has bind the spectators from attending this summer's games. it comes off of japan's capital, declared a state of emergency of rich covey case load. on wednesday, it posted almost a 1000 new infections, the olympic opening ceremony a scheduled for the 23rd of july. there has been a widespread opposition to the games in japan with kohls for them to be postponed or canceled. now the pandemic marks

the able to pick scenes to all humanity. joe biden has signed a bill that would had additional financial support to washington's whistle. blower program at the move is aimed at improving the protection of those who are report different types of violations. however, as practice shows and our team to retrieve out takes us through. many of those people are in fact punished instead of being supported. whistleblowers like julian fudge, 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 discourage, all these pesky leakers from spilling the beans on the government's darkest secrets . when media alpha pro public dropped this 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 in investigation,
1:23 pm
and that's the way this story goes every single time, from obama that from ban. now bided. public officials don't want to address any of the week issues, you know, as for public demand, but would rather find those responsible who dared to unveil the government's dark secrets, the united states do something to stop mister assange. we're looking at that right now. you should be treated as an enemy combatant, with the lease should be closed down permanently, decisively disguise a trade or a treasonous. and he has broken every law of the united states. the guy ought to be . i'm not for the death penalty. so if i'm not for the defendant, i 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 who this is unfair. this is on ethical and blah blah blah. of course though, over the years, the government has tried to maintain
1:24 pm
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 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, italy 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
1:25 pm
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 work with congress to strengthen our whistleblower laws so that 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?
1:26 pm
it's their jobs on the line. and what we can tell from all these leaks, these people are not exactly righteous. do gooders. sorry, there was a top stories for this. our here on our international live on this thursday program . plenty more stories still to come your way when we return to the top of the hour . hope you can join us the special summer solutions where we look at the solutions. i'm here with stacy herbert and we've got a special guest stacy right out there. mcloud of gold money dot com. he writes amazing pieces over. there are lots of blog posts, research and all sorts of stuff. i recommend you check it out, your latest pieces out there are called too much liquidity and inflation assets and consumer prices. so this is definitely the biggest theme of 2021. and that is
