tv   Going Underground  RT  July 12, 2021 5:30am-6:01am EDT

5:30 am
the time action or time we're going underground on the day of you get prime minister maurice johnson. so gold freedom day corona virus announcement is we dig up the stories the elite don't want you to find coming up in the show. will the u. k. be returning to a policy of heard. immunity is big pharma, monopolies count the 1000000000 they've made from vaccinating the world's richest countries, while the poorest become a playground. for covariance, we ask our family policy lead to the people's vaccine alliance. 10 years after the creation of the world, the newest countries out to done, we talked with new ambassadors in the course, st. james, about whether it's future will be, it's washington consensus, past or as an african oil, suv about all of them all coming up in today's going underground. but 1st, today, bar johnson, leading a country with one of the worst corona virus. dest tools in the world, arguably tells britain if he is eminently to let corona virus run through the population as part of a policy of her immunity. no surprise then that in the liberal policy of competition versus cooperation, governs
5:31 am
u. k. aims when it comes to the global south and vaccination. joining me now from the white is the policy leads to the people's vaccine. the lines knock sam's health policy advisor, anna merritt, and i thank so much for coming on. what is the people's vaccine alliance? so we see johnson every day tells the nation here that we have one of the best vaccine rollers in the world. say the people that seen the lion global movement, a global campaign of organizations, individuals with chapters all over the world and supported by many current president prime ministers as well as former needed a nobel laureate. i'm basically what the people back in is the last thing that's available to everybody on the planet, free of charge and the accent is according to need and not ability to pay. and what we have is the absolute opposite of that right now, we have seen an extreme back being inequality that's not only put in lives the risk in many of the poorest countries in the world, but is actually continuing to be
5:32 am
a threat for all of us because we know unless we get back to everyone unless everyone is protected, then none of us say, well i know china is administered at least a 1000000000 vaccines. i mean what you just said, that's exactly why the g 7 hosted by boris johnson. and coldwell said, we're gonna, we're, we're going to give out free vaccines to the book today. so you should be happy with that. so i have to say that, you know, if we look at the level of need to get them from the control the, the trip color charity that was offered at the g 7 is nothing short of a monumental failure. in our opinion. you know, we need another 1000000000 and i'm the g 7 off adult actually less than a 1000000000 in donations with no urgency in terms of when the nations are going to be made. and the reality is that donations would be needed. now,
5:33 am
because we are seeing that the rates rise in some of the port of the country, but they're not going to fix this crisis to be back. we actually need the g 7 countries to back the listing of the patients on the fact that the science a know how can be shed throughout. well, we can get more qualified manufacturers making them run production. that's the only way that we're going to get back to back to make everybody and i'll get to intellectual property. and in a 2nd, surely these g 70 doesn't know what you are talking about in this phrase. it's so often used about when safe, et cetera, at china, it exploded. 48 percent of the vaccines. it produced britain, them, united states. i don't know whether you know, how many they've, i mean it's reportedly as 0. why would they not do what you are saying given that it will harm their own economies? well, i think what we're saying is we actually paying
5:34 am
a divide that the us president has actually agreed to the proposal that we lift the patients on the batting the rest of the g 7 are either sitting on the fence or in the case as far as johnson, and i'm awfully opposed to this proposal i'm. we can only put that down to narrow vaccine nationalism and government missing a profit, interest. the big pharmacy corporations ahead of global interest in terms of guessing, i guess, in this pandemic, under control. and we really need to see the government, the german government stopped blocking these proposals that would apply on the right side of history. now if we've done this a year ago, we would be in a very different position. now we would have so many more doses being made, developing countries with having a short supply. * for themselves, yes, 12 months after all those commitments that the best thing would be a global public good. and they're still standing in the way of boxing and
5:35 am
developing countries. i mean, i've seen case studies in washington dc and the massive big farm lobbying firms. i mean, you saying that the big firm and low being in london in brussels is, is worse than that in the united states. so the joe biden was able to, as you say, unlike britain in the you offer some kind of intellectual property waiver. look, i think, i think the farm and lobby is we all know is incredibly strong in the us and explains why the us president is not doing enough to turn those was into action at the well trade organization. but yes, the bama lobby is incredibly strong in europe. europe has the you have a very check, a history of putting intellectual property roles in the way of access and developing countries. i've how you k. so we need to switch thought that we must learn from history. 20 years ago, we had
5:36 am
a huge crisis down. we had a 10000000 people die on fairly well. there was treatment available that could have saved them. yes. a pharmacy for monopolies, refused to lower that price. they refused to allow the generic manufacturers to make those treatments. once that decision was changed, we have seen millions of lives saved. we need to do the same again. now, ironically, these countries not doing what you want them to really affect, be actually felt by global capitalism. is that why even the i m f w t o and we'll bank seems to be supporting what you're saying. yeah, i mean, i think i can make it to, to fail to tackle backing inequality. the, the i m f is that the cost to the global economy side will be in the region of mine, trillion dollars. we're already seeing in the whole of the economy to laugh
5:37 am
it's not in the interest for all of us to protect the i'm watering profit, the just a handful of people. corporations who are very successfully creating new billionaires as we speak, while the rest of the economy. and that means job losses. that means poverty rising and we already see property rising for the 1st time in 2 decades in developing countries. the economic consequences, the social consequences of a failure to act absolutely struck that we need to see some urgency. we haven't seen it yet. we need, i'm going on bars. don't seem to get on the right side of support the listing of the patients on these passing. i mean, we've heard on this program has some people are accusing kovacs of being an entire failure altogether. but i mean, johnson has pledged 30000000 doses through kovacs any point in that initiative.
5:38 am
even. yes, it did say k boxed is an important mechanism. in fact, many developing countries, it's the only source of supply. unfortunately, that supply has just been trickled today and say, the foundation problem areas that came back to failed to challenge the pharmaceutical monopolies. they have basically just raise money, different corporations, what they want, and come back to the back of the key. for those back things, supplies, while pharmaceutical corp, prioritize back contracts with rich nation where they can make the most profit that are always going to do that. and that's why we need, we need to, to a new model of more distributed manufacturing around the world. you know, the, well, it is currently dependent on just a handful of people, corporations who are calling all the shots. they get to decide how many get may, what prices charge and who get to buy them. and that will always mean that the
5:39 am
mechanisms like that for developing countries and developing countries themselves will always be about to be key. you see some saying that government scientists, i mean to today there's this announcement about what people are using. the johnson administration of pursuing a heard immunity strategy. do you think government scientists, many of them i do, the big pharmaceutical companies may be saying quiet lead to ministers and politicians look to many vaccines. you're just going to create variance that heard immunity be the strategy rather than more vaccinations? why no, no, i don't know whether i can comment on what fine it's the same to governments. i'm unfortunately many of those stations are behind by the door. well, i can say is that the people being alliance, a leading academia from around the well just a few months ago back in march. and she said that unless we tackle this been
5:40 am
inequality, we all going to see that thing resistant rare variance within 6 to 12 months. is that right? that gives us the very frightening prospect that we will feedback the resistance variance on our shows in rich countries that have, you know, successfully rolled out the vaccines where we is feeling protected. we could see those very in the right, by autumn when i'm the devastation that will bring. it just doesn't bad thinking about ok, trying to be positive for a 2nd. do not think that the global south will learn from this and begin to understand the importance of local infrastructure, pharmaceutical manufacturing. maybe they'll get leaked blueprints to these painting did vaccines and start working for themselves, rather than relying on handouts from, well, it wouldn't be in the via the i m. s. from the g 7 countries. so, you know,
5:41 am
i think we need to be clear that there is already a very strong back been manufacturing based in many developing countries in india, in the navy, those governments and now saying already we can make these, you know, we have proven science. that was largely publicly funded and let's not forget that back seems funded by the science we share. now with those qualified manufacturers, we could see production in developing countries right now within a matter of months. now those manufactures are coming forward, think we can make them as long as you thought base already exist is without doubt that we need more investment in manufacturing. in developing countries across africa, the african union has put forward a target of making 60 percent of its own vaccines within the next few decades. now,
5:42 am
bishop target is the water, but those countries will need support and we need and they need the science now. manufacturing can be wrapped up when manufacturing people ready and to repair. there's no regulator here that can intervene. there's no higher authority the united nations to intervene to force the europe, ian union and the british government to give away the recipe to the vaccine against groan of ours. the reason why i leveled, i mean every, every proposal on the table at the well trade organization that would see these intellectual property listed. but to, to agree that is dependent on the government coming together and agreeing that now over a 100 countries already supporting this proposal, including president biden, including president micron, including the russian government, including the chinese government government. just a handful less like the u. k and germany who was standing in the way,
5:43 am
if they shifted we could get a consensus and we could get things moving as quickly as possible. they need to get, they need to start blocking this. and i'm, i thank you. thank you very much. after the break, 10 years after the george clooney in washington sponsored creation south to done as a light of a new dawn. what next for the country blighted by civil war, corruption of famine and the liberalism. all this more, can we often part to of going on the ground? ah, join me every thursday on the alex summon show, and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politic sport business and show business. i'll see you then. me what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation,
5:44 am
let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk. she seemed pretty real thing a little slow, letting them go by susan. well, i don't want to come a little to go see me when you have a week when you have a meeting in the room, initial authentic premium guy will go on the field on the one. let me know which company was going to look at. 2 me on the screen you soon? this news i was looking here. when you mentioned that kim
5:45 am
quickly elude you initially connect on on the, on the financial young, hoody and division that you lose could you could shoot me to the lower ah the the welcome back. in part one, we spoke about vaccine deposit as richard nations ward vaccines, to the detriment of poor ones. but is this merely the way they to nation imperialism works is 10 years if the creation of oil rich south threw down. now auctioning oil contract on the global market ribbon buy food insecurity and killing the country's future, though, be brighter than anyone can imagine. and joining me now is south sedans, newman bastards, london, magnets all swath. thank you so much better for coming on. people might have heard
5:46 am
it's out you don't because george clooney you campaign for the creation of it. how is the 1st 10 years of its existence been there since 10 years overall has been going well defined. the challenge is also done has made a lot of progress. as you are aware, we build the nation out of scratch, given the devastation, undo over 50 years. so struggled. i mean, you have worked through enough 1000000000 barrels a day being produced at the moment. 90 percent of the oil hasn't been extracted yet . i mean, you say it's been going well, why does it have food insecurity and why? i don't know. take covert, for instance, i was reading, you only had maybe 4 ventilators for a population of 12000000 people. 24 in terms of cabin right now we have a lot of until later today when we shift the partners and we'll have that
5:47 am
eventually the and also done our support team as you notate very well. we also have the united kingdom testing and dario health and education. so the number of different tomatoes has the increase rate of coverage. 19. you also don't need might not be the tv or in comparison to other nation. but dame is rio. yeah. the deaths and no and near as bad as hearing britain big a catheter. obviously you mention british aid. what did you make of this? so your counterparts in effects in juba, apparently telling the me telling n g o is not to contact me the or especially sky news, about any discussion of the foreign aid cuts from london. ah, i have no comment on you. k as and you know, they have their division because the aide comes from them. however,
5:48 am
creating an impact on nations such as the republican sauce so done, which is a developing state in comparison to develop nations. so what are things also learning for people not day attention being drawn to the money aspect is doug and we are faced with natural disasters such as flood low cost. so for the last 3 years have been have you flooding to our country. so 7 out of 10 states and walton as we speak, the heavy rainy, sporting a republic. and at the same time these affects their livelihood. in terms of food security, income, how small funding skin. because people who do form for fish and sea, not necessarily for export for instance, we do,
5:49 am
which we had to look to develop. yeah, i mean, we haven't natural disasters in other countries though, that, you know, obviously affect different places, but then they prepare for themselves. it wasn't able to prepare for the living. we're not able to prepare for the flooding given to what i have noted that it is a new nation build out of scratch. so, and this is the way it comes to health and capacity building live in how to mitigate the flood because he's not just, you know, it's flood. most of the country seating on the water. i mean, eritrea has a new country. it has no food insecurity at all and health care. you don't think that part of the problem and sad sudan is this reliance on washington consensus partners like london and the european union. more than
5:50 am
more than the tilting to beijing, which i know is a massive invest in a growing investments answered on as i noted, social dining marriage out of a long struggle. so building institutions takes time and currently government through our region. we actually have region 2040. well we have to look into how to develop agriculture using their money from the oil. basically process of diversifying the economy, which would lead to the reduction of poverty and sell. so that being said, sufficient instead of relying on 8, but i noted earlier, the lundy is vast, vital time. so small funding skill makes a difference,
5:51 am
such as backyard funding. you know, in social down you can throw anything on the ground. i mean, gross. so the line is time. so our main problem is the flooding and the natural disaster, or some might say your main problem is being so g, o strategic there in africa and having oil in the 1st place is just go back a little. i mean, is it was the end of the ethiopian trail war, important for the creation of south to done is that is that part of the context of the creation of your country is also not per thing was not created. i came through a friend of the people who saw so down struggled through a long civil war, which led to didn't know where she ations and fell. so dining independence merge through random which marks day july and i and then for reverse. but in the
5:52 am
army fighting, i mean we know from wiki leaks, julian assange is currently in jail in london. of course, revealing that the ca paid people in south to don's army to, to fight for the creation as well. and to the, the circumstances in which the referendum began. and in that aspect, we are grateful for the friends are also don't like your you. k is historical friend or social than us is a friend of 1000 down. the people are also done with their one on the front line. they died over for lost over 4000000 lives to arrive, where we are. therefore, we are grateful for us and friends who stood with us during this trial. i mean, you say historical friends with the u. k. i mean, anyone who knows the colonial history of that area once done knows lee slaughter
5:53 am
and atrocities committed by british colonialism in what is now subsidized, actually, or they forgot that, wow, i mean colonialism legacy has its own history. or in fact, you know, that the creation of elsewhere which i correct is that it's not the creation parssi because the people of south with and died for the for coming to historically good relationship with london. i mean, you're not going to a statute. lord kitchener in june, but presumably, i mean, you don't meant relationship only by creation of statute for them. but we have a good relationship with the u. k. we have an embassy gilba. and before that, you k give social access to half emission in the united kingdom and this one before a data friend them after the signing of the comprehensive piece algorithm and in
5:54 am
2005, i don't know whether it amuses you that britain has a few problems with chinese investment in the past few days. big bosses of virtual meeting with the chinese government communist body. and at the same time, under pressure from washington, arguably britain is that the ban. have some chinese companies is the same in south sit down because it goes, you're presidents of a gear, had to shut down oil production with a chinese investment and then reopen it at least pressure similar between britain and says, so don, in this geopolitical war between washington emerging in relation to investment south, so that is open to investors. meeting is open to the entire universe and not we are ready to be invest in the new game with china as well as with the washington and whoever. why,
5:55 am
why did the president have to shut down the chinese oil facilities and then reopen them? i mean, is the problem here that the people that give you the age money, do the talking and prevent development in south sudan? oh, what can you making clear when? when do i check 2 years ago, 2 and a half years ago, president suffolk, you shut them down under pressure from washington and then said, actually we are going to reopen it. and of course now there's massive chinese investment, hopefully coming into your country. but as you are aware, you've been before a day dependent monday. oh, actually the investment or the chinese investment. so and also our friends, such as the us, was offering the block roy and so if others are willing to come invest in the oil industry, they're welcome to come to the house. i mean, you don't think they,
5:56 am
you're close. relationship with washington creates problems. i mean of venezuela is the country with the biggest known oil resources. do you think south sudan would be able to do a deal for oil infrastructural investment in your country while london and washington are looking on by birth, johnson wants to overthrow the venezuelan government. he's talked about that nobody said, well, it's all tables for washing done. i'm not going to invest in social and he's not like rejecting them. we are reading if they are ready. and you saying that british companies are welcome to get these new bids for these 5 blocks and establish 84025000 square kilometers. have just about to go they are welcome to south to down and invest,
5:57 am
come to invest in the oil industry in agriculture and minerals and different resources that we have come. i just, i just finally the environmental degradation of the country, the settlements paid by british oil companies. i is the government going to protect the environment of don as it allows investment from british companies. we have ministry of environment, i'm sure father street as well as the ministry of petroleum on commissions that are concerned with the effect. and we doubt we call for capacity building in the area of the environment master. thank you. and that's it for the show will be back on wednesday when the un security council needs to discuss the world's worst humanitarian crisis. yemen whose was fueled by british weaponry until then keep in touch, why will our social media channel subscribed to the channel on youtube?
5:58 am
and let us know when you think that's done to pursue in on the line path for a prosperous future. ah ah, what else seemed wrong? when all, just don't. i mean, yes to shape out. the thing becomes the after an engagement equal betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart and we choose to look for common ground in ah, you know, you don't do it, you know, it spin up and didn't want, you know, you didn't, you know, i don't, i don't,
5:59 am
i don't good down the food that i've all use in the 40, almost in there i get like, are you i mean that i think pretty online for me to find the most of it from of it just took a list of the went from a middle initial group and was new put that all along plenty porcelain initials going to separate your summer solutions where we focus on the solutions. not so much. the problem, stacy,
6:00 am
right. we are joined by jeff booth author of the price of tomorrow. we will not allow the opponents of the revolution. mercenaries were sold out to the u. s. government sold out to the empire, receiving money from subversive agencies to provoke destabilization. the huber accuses washington of inciting a mass demonstrations across the country. thousands have taken st protesting and economic crisis and poor handling of the cobit pandemic. reviving the spirit of new non segregation in europe, russia takes a shot at brom. so because it seems i talked to a senior official tells the rest of europe, it should reject goes also by moscow on facing.
