suffering. havana points out of the major role washington has played through decades of sanctions and now allegedly social media manipulation. ah, but guessing web direct, more studios in moscow, this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now, president biden has delivered a speech on voting rights, lashing out republicans for opposing a sweeping voting rights bill backs by democrats or to kill them up and comments. well, we just heard a very passionate speech from us president joe biden. the speech was concerning the very controversial rules. many republicans around the country are setting in regarding voting. many republican legislatures in states across the country are looking to to, you know, pass measures that they say are aimed to curb voter fraud. joe biden sees it rather
7:02 pm
differently, and he gave a speech that is certainly the most and sleepy speech we've heard from him so far as president. take a listen, treat it is not a state, it's an act. freedom is not a state, it's an act. and we must act and we will lack car causes, just or vision is hard to worry to people for democracy, for america itself, we must god bless, you all, may god protect guard through all those you care to watch over the market, round the country. we have republicans proposing laws, they say say are aimed at essentially preventing voter fraud. they're requiring new forms of voter identification. they're regulating the polling places. and some places there have been laws proposed to restrict the handing out of water to those waiting in line to vote. etc, now, joe biden, and most democrats see this as basically an attempt by republicans to suppress the
7:03 pm
voter turnout specifically in constituencies that don't vote for them such as low income folks, african americans and others. now, in response to these proposed rules that we're seeing democrats taking some rather dramatic measures. for example, in texas, the democrat state legislators have left the state in order that there not be a quorum so that the state legislator cannot. legislature cannot take a vote on these measures. take alyssa de taxes, how democrats stand united in our decision to break quorum and refuse to let the republican lead legislature forth through dangerous legislation that would trample and texans freedom to vote. when thou taken to fight on nations capital. so these texas democrats by leaving the state and basically shutting down the state legislature are really essentially bringing state government to a halt. it's a rather dramatic gesture. take a listen. texas democrats decision to break
7:04 pm
a cool room of the texas legislature and abandon the texas state capital inflict harm on the very texans who elected them to serve as they fly across the country on ca, she private planes. they leave undone issues that can help the district and of states . now essentially, we have republicans calling for punishment of these texas state legislators calling for them to be arrested, alleging that this is a vote subversion. they're trying to subvert the vote, and we heard joe biden allude to that. and his speech when he spoke against the republicans and their proposed measures to make this is simple. this is election. subversion is the most dangerous threat of voting in the integrity of free and fair elections in our history. so the country is very, very divided when it comes to these issues. and it's unlikely that this rather high emotion speech from joe biden is really going to change that. there's a pretty big gap between americans when it comes to these issues. so joe biden
7:05 pm
wants a federal law to protect voters. republicans in many local states, one laws restricting and making it a little more difficult to vote. so that's the situation. a divided country in the united states, cuban president has pointed the finger squarely at washington over protests that have gripped his country. thousands flooded the streets of the caribbean nation on sunday, over an economic crisis exacerbated by the pandemic. the anti government movement is being called the biggest in 30 years. the, the protest kept a tough year for cuba. economy has plunged 11 percent and made worse by americans. sanctions. streets are now calm, but with a heavy police presence in savannah wants to know just how much the u. s. and it's social media have manipulated the opposition correspondence for our sister channel or to spanish reports from the capital real and has returned to normal life. for
7:06 pm
example, here in front of the national capital, which is one of the main places for anti government protest together on sunday. we see absolutely come now. the same is in other places across the city and across the country as well. but there's a huge police presence. monday was where president miguel dia canal and the governing team appearing on tv. they spoke about the economic situation in the country and also about the 4th generation non conventional war against the island, which had the same characteristics as what happened in venezuela or serial. then the speech by the foreign minister has also caught attention. he responded in strong terms to us president joe biden. the norfolk is twitter of playing a fundamental role in manipulating protests in the country. let's listen to him. i called on twitter and i also called on the u. s. government to recognize or deny that political operators actively use tags, collectives or groups of robots, trolls. so i use a coordinated with automated main to flood the networks, etc,
7:07 pm
etc. and they saw peroration against cuba. they're all they mean the economy was also fundamental matter. let's remember, cuba has been in a grave economic crisis since the start of the pandemic. and even before that, due to the titan, us embargoed during the pandemic, the u. s. government to low and approve more than 50 measures related to that. and meanwhile, the countries paralyzed with low financial inflows and the need to tackle the pandemic. this resulted in food shortages, as well as a lack of some medicines, as most resources within to treat patients with covey. 19 cuba is now at the peak of the pandemic. and medical personnel on high alert, we discuss the cubans, how they live in this situation. and their opinion almost happened. who can hey, on the streets, the stories of people not only about today, but also yesterday, and the days before people don't have enough resources to take care of themselves and their families. there's a lack of mattson and food. we need to talk and make proposals to achieve the well
7:08 pm
being of our people. what happened to be the way it was only for community intervention that city is quiet, the country is quiet. now, the debate starts over the social networks. meanwhile, the government warns about the campaign calling for humanitarian intervention, which could have more dangerous consequences than even a military one. meanwhile, members of the cuban dispatch across the straits of florida and miami have rallied in solid charity demanding that washington intervenes bene notes the decades long us blockade is the key factor in its economic hardship. but president biden insists he stands with the cuban people. united states stands firmly with the people or q as they assert their universal rights. and because the government, human to refrain from violence or attempt to silence the voice of the people or cuba having spent significant time in cuba during the special
7:09 pm
period, the harshest period of sanctions and deprivation. i can tell you there is real suffering and there is real malays and it is brought about as a direct result of the u. s. embargo. so it was inevitable that there would be protests like this. we can see that people have genuine grievances, but that they are also being pulled into a regime change agenda by organizations like this and a seizure movement which have clear ties to the united states government. the trump administration in ended, the obama administration's normalization with cuba, reimpose, brutal sanctions, not just on cuba, but on venezuela. blocking fuel shipments to cuba, the cuban government had to ration food starting in 2018. and now we have a pen demik where cuba has had to miraculous miraculously manufacture its own vaccine because of a needle shortage brought on by the u. s. blockade for humanitarian reason. i think
7:10 pm
that we should help the cuban people right now because they need the help. they need the medicine, they need the food and supplies so that they can stay alive. they're having some serious issues down there. but long term there has to be a change in the power structure few, but as far as lifting the things you could the united states to do something in regards to that. sure they could. but if the economic system that they have in place, that is really the input, if for the majority of the economic problems that they're suffering. now, in addition, you obviously have to couple the corona virus pandemic and the economic contraction that's going on globally. it's not only cuba, it's suffering economically. obviously they were not on putting to be able to then have to handle, you know, an economic downturn. compounding of the bad economic situation because of the corona virus pandemic. but to put this all on the united states of america,
7:11 pm
it's basically like a police force, some sort of a stimulus or a bail out of the u. s. was set to reverse its anti cuban policies. decades ago before president kennedy was assassinated, that the revelation made by director all were stone in the latest episode of going underground, where he talked about his new j f. k documentary. you can watch the interview and full from wednesday on our t dot com. missy. we have a us president in the white house backing forces against the cuban government plaza shown before we head onto the evidence which, which we wouldn't have without to have the movie in your new documentary. what is the relevance in case people are going on? he's not talking about kennedy again, the relevant to joe biden, who is bombing syria and iraq only the past few weeks. what is the relevant to the current whitehouse of this documentary? well, i think that the relevant is the main point we were trying to make in the donkey
7:12 pm
ministry was at john kennedy was a warrior for peace in all forms. and among the many things he was doing when he was killed was reaching out to cuba to and this embargo to make a detox with gas, troy look good. and he was also at the same time over making an overarching deal with khrushchev on the soviet union. they had, they signed the nuclear test ban treaty together, which is an amazing document. first time the soviets, in the us sign a treaty of this nature and war, the cold war, which was readily coming to an end in 1963. so you can imagine where the world would be now instead we have this retro grade policy where the u. s . is still got an embargo on cuba 60 years later. and renews today is just another one and along concurrent crises, events that happen every few years. i don't,
7:13 pm
you know, this has been going on for for decades. ah. it might be a beautiful game, but it is not looking good for the fight against coven. it's now feared that sunday's the euro 2020 final could cause a big spike in cases. as the victorious italian team paraded their trophy through the center of rome, enormous crowds gave little thought to cover the regulations that came just a day after tens of thousands of unmasked fans crammed together. the match in london will health organization has described event as devastating. am i supposed to be enjoying watching transmission happening in front of my ice decoded? 19. pandemic is not taking a break tonight. sorry. corey to delta barron will take advantage of an vaccinated people in crowded settings, unmasked screaming, shout, and singing. devastating. the
7:14 pm
$60000.00 sand. barely a mask to be seen. i lack of social distances. note checks and claims of faith test results. i was the scene playing out at wembley stadium. sports journalists, derek clark was asked again to coven controls where joe didn't even need to do or feet attached because you weren't even checked for your corporate task whatsoever. and like i say that were just checking your phone for your tickets and you would want to see that you had a ticket on your phone that will just loading you in. doesn't matter if you had a negative test, if you read the faith that the test either missing more really to the the think we should have taken more seriously. there's no checks for call within police was just a lot of sorts of people with motor bus security measures. she should have been in
7:15 pm
police as well, but there just wasn't enough security or steers to county of the the checks health care officials warm. the final could push the u. k to a 1000000 new infections within a month. cases have already shot up to some 35000 a day, but the prime ministers still scrapping england restrictions next week. the government points to a successful inoculation program for almost 35000000 getting a shot and also a drop in death and of the number of people needing hospital treatment. we will speak to our plan to lift the legal, restrictions and deliver social distancing. restrictions are easy and the 19th of july, of course, is when looking at this final restrictions easing as well. so things are getting back to normal, but very little people waiting masks and last nights, especially heading towards the underground station after the lounge,
7:16 pm
amount of people. but no dual monster waiting, so what could be a rising, teach because of that. then as i mentioned, the checks for corporate hey, begin to dig it out. and so that as of what that, i mean i was in the grant just about 20 minutes. there was already 3 or 4 young guys of it's already posted in watching art center. national still ahead in the program as the co delta strain threatens to become globally dominant and months. russia witnesses another grim record in daily cove. and guess we look at the grueling everyday battle for lives at the russian metrics face this and other stories in just 90 seconds from now with this is our international ah ah,
7:17 pm
with me ah ah, i use summer solutions where we focus on the solutions. not so much the problem, stacy, right. we are joined by jeff booth author of the price of tomorrow. the
7:18 pm
the, the, the, the, the welcome back. this is archie international. now, corona virus continues to evolve with the delta variance. now, in more than $100.00 countries, the stream was 1st identified in india and is believed to be the most contagious yet with the world health organization protecting it will be the dominant variance globally within 9 months. here in russia, the strain already accounts for more than 90 percent of new infections. and as the strain continues to spread, russia has set another daily coded death toll record with 783. tell these registered in the last 24 hours with more on how health care workers are dealing with this challenge here is anton kasinsky. he returns to the red zone in the latest installment of his documentary theories epidemic. the luck an
7:19 pm
empty bed, an empty bed. it's an empty space out there, a small one. so tara 1347 beds. i think i hoped i would never come back here again. we are at a hospital again and here again. are these damn scrubs? how did the hospital start to fill up? we were monitoring that there had been 50 patients daily and suddenly the number went up to 100 and then 210120130 so on. but of course, the key point is that we will ready, well prepared. the worst thing is when you're not on album for him, what's the main pattern of this new strain probably will not, will continue will firstly it's more contagious. and 2nd, it hits way faster than the previous and now takes $1.00 to $2.00 days instead of 7
7:20 pm
to wait with that. and i think it's also hitting younger people. one people i feel they didn't believe it would happen. they thought the virus had gone, but it stayed. they think everything is okay. it's a simple flu and it will end soon, but it doesn't. it wasn't day after day. and how many of those in the hospital are vaccinated? well, around 122-1000 patients. i'm a lovely and believable. all young guys. i've never seen anything like this before . how did you end up here? did you have a high temperature? yes, i had a temperature. i called an ambulance. they brought me here and my condition drastically nose dived. what do you mean? well, in 2 days, how old are you? i'm 47. so we're the same age and how badly where your lungs damaged. 75 percent. did you get the vaccine? nope. why do? because i'm an idiot. why is this happening? where people not vaccinating? we do look since the ninety's there was an anti vaccination campaign at that time
7:21 pm
and those mad moms said we won't be vaccinated against measles, chicken pulse. we won't take any vaccine. someone put that idea in the head that the vaccination is bad, but in fact, it saves lives and it helps vanquish the pandemic. so when do you think it will and never can damage tend to last from 3 to 5 years. i'm actually afraid of asking you who is vaccinating and non you raise your hands please. if he's vaccinated, i know him. well, actually anyone who comes here is vaccinated. well, it's because you're a strict boss. i've been in an intensive care unit for a month, and my condition is severe. maybe the outcome would be less if i had taken a job. i wanted to get vaccinated, but i didn't find time. and now i'm in a dire condition. ah,
7:22 pm
[000:00:00;00] ah, the meanwhile, there are reports of patients now being infected with 2 coded strains. at the same time. on tuesday, an expert at the top, russian institute said that the 1st such national case had been reported in an elder, elderly woman as early as last year. another report came from belgium 3 days ago, where a 90 year old woman died while carrying both of the alpha and beta variance of virus . several cases have also been detected in thailand earlier. my colleague john quarter asked a medic at an austrian clinic whether existing jobs can deal with double infections . we were expecting things like that to happen and also understand that the reason
7:23 pm
why we know that these 90 year old lady has that double infection is because they did a very clear dna nomics. we have not done dna genomics and 99 percent of patients who had cobra. so probably we will have a lot higher rate if we would test everybody so precisely that old lady was unfortunately not accident. today from the information we have from all the data that we have in the clinical courses, which are very important, is that if you are vaccinated, even if you are infected with to the variance of the call with the virus. that the course of the disease will be still very, very mild, and certainly the date, the death rates, which were amazing about a year ago will be much, much lower. so i think we can a little bit relax yet. be very careful. and we need, obviously more data and analyze is more specifically, do you think that european union states should be rejecting people with certain jobs? i mean, one example could be, for example,
7:24 pm
the indian made astrazeneca vaccine. it's a political question and it would be a political answer. what i refused to accept is that unfortunately, the european union refused the split from the beginning. the indian one, we don't have data to analyze that, but remember the indians have the delta barriers, so probably they have more information and more data and more availability to produce vaccines that direct against the delta barrier. that may be the question that needs still to be answered with key mid term and congress elections that, looming, the white house has made a strange you turn on as defined, the police pledge as crime rates of sor, the ruling democrats. now want to shift the blame for slashing law enforcement budgets on to the republicans or to the worst done of comments. defend the police versus back the blue. these slogans turned into war banners in america's political . in fighting between the progressives and the conservatives,
7:25 pm
there was no fence to sit on for politicians, it was pick aside of, i'll go home. so as republicans went, defend, the democrats shows the fund many affluent suburbs, suburbs have essentially already begun pursuing a de funding up the police in that they fund school based on housing and the health care more as their number one priority in many cities in america over one 3rd of their city budget goes to police. so we have to have this conversation. what are we doing? we may this man called minneapolis police department defend and the police isn't radical. it's real. they pushed and pushed and pushed one by one police department . so the money flows run dry, it seemed like the dams were clear victors in this ideological clash. but then the crime figures came in and the democrats weren't eager to take the credit for their
7:26 pm
defending efforts, ensuring their specific guidance to communities across the country to ensure that they have funding to get more community police around the country. some might say that the other party was for the funding, the police a let others say that, but that's a piece jump saki, ladies and gentlemen, an honorary member of the international gas lighting association. the light was so blatant, even the washington post fact checkers, couldn't help awarding the white house press secretary with 3 pinocchio is to the tune. of course of republicans gloating. it's remarkable that the white house is now apparently employing comedians. that's like democrats saying they're the ones that want to build the wall. it's absurd. it's ridiculous. and there's a good enough reason the democrats on that proud of their achievement in the funding, the police, the year to date murder rate hikes almost 17 percent across the u. s,
7:27 pm
on average in portland, which slash 27000000 from the police budget. it stands at a whopping 533 percent austin. that took away almost $150000000.00 from the police departments. has to deal with a 79 percent surge. and while correlation of course in no way means causation. but will really few policemen on the streets actually improve the situation. so defining the police, sadly. it's a mindset that the politicians are using to leverage the angry mob that's out there and it's not going to turn out the way that they think it is. i mean the police, this is not what people think. it's think it means, and it's actually a political tactical right now. sadly, anybody who really supports the defining the police move and they believe that the police are going to be arbitrary. i just removed off the street and that's not the case defining the police goes for programs, it goes for training, it goes for the sub is the on working within the department. and that's just going to hurt the officers that are on the street now. and there's going to prevent them from doing their jobs properly for the citizens who still need them,
7:28 pm
regardless of whether or not they want them on the street. it's all political theater. if you can keep people constantly in a perpetual state of wonder, you're, it's, they're always creating a problem that they can solve. you reap what you sow, but in a dirty game of politics, nobody ever wants to own up to the lapses. and if the democrats want to keep their majority in congress, they'll need something more advanced than the republican bad formula. and just before we go to a quick swing around the globe to look at some other stories making headlines, this, our 1st in lebanon, the riot police fire tear gas during clashes with protesters in the countries capital. after the families of victims of last year's port black took to the streets to protest against the lebanese interior minister demonstrators, many of them carrying coffins to symbolize the dead are demanding an end to what they feel as effort to obstruct
