the moon, the the reed is not a state and we must after we will act president by the chooses a republicans of blocking a landmark bill. he says would broaden black voters participation in election planes of the test results, no checks, and no max out the year 2020 final. the world health organization says london's football showdown was devastating for efforts to control the pandemic. the battle continues. those codes are highly contagious. delta vary takes root worldwide, and now accounts for more than 90 percent of russia's new cases. we return it to a corona virus clinic to see how health care workers are coping. and as us leaders openly back, what they call cube was
8:01 pm
a protest against decades of economic suffering. havana points out the major role washington has played it through decades of sanctions and now allegedly social media manipulation ah or break my direct from studios and moscow. this is art international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to to have you with us. and our president biden has delivered a speech on voting rights, lashing out republicans for opposing a sweeping voting rights bill, backed by democrats, are to kill him, often reports. 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,
8:02 pm
pass measures that they say are aimed to curb voter fraud. joe biden sees it rather 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, freedom 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 our business. hearts are full of people for democracy. for america itself, we must, god bless you all, may god protect our dreams and 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. in 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,
8:03 pm
and most democrats see this as basically an attempt by republicans to suppress the 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 democrats 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 that? the republican lead legislator forced through dangerous legislation that would trample and texans freedom to vote. when thou taken the fight all in 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. takes us democrats decision to break
8:04 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 and 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 is
8:05 pm
a pretty big gap between americans when it comes to these issues. so, joe biden 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. cuba, the 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 protest camp a tough year for cuba, the economy has plunged 11 percent made worse by american sanctions. the streets are now calm, but with a heavy police presence and havana wants to know or wants to know just how much the u. s. and it's a social media and have manipulated the opposition. corresponding for us history
8:06 pm
channel or to spanish reports. now from a capital real and has returned to normal life, for example, here in front of the national capital, which is one of the main places for anti government protested 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 the president of the 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, and also accused twitter playing a fundamental role in manipulating protests in the country. let's listen to him on twitter. and i also called on the u. s. government to recognize or deny that political operate is actively use tag collectives or groups of robots,
8:07 pm
trolls. so i use a coordinated with automated main to flood the networks, etc, etc. in this operation against cuba they all, they mean the economy was also fundamental naturalists. remember, cuba has been in a grave economic crisis since the start of the pandemic. and even before that, due to the titans, us embargoed during the pandemic, the u. s. government alone approve more than 50 measures related to that. 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 medicine, as most resources within to treat patients with coded 19 in cuba is now at the peak of the pandemic. and or medical personnel or high alerts. we discuss cubans, how they live in this situation, and their opinion on what happened. you can have on the streets, the stories of people, not only both today but also yesterday, and the day before people don't have enough resources to take care on themselves
8:08 pm
and their families. there's a lack of maps and food. we need to talk and make proposals to achieve the well being of our people. what happens to be the way only want to community intervention that city is quite, the country is quiet. now, the debate starts over the social networks. meanwhile, the government warns about the campaign calling to humanitarian intervention, which could have more dangerous consequences than even a military while doing it. meanwhile, members of the cuban this opera across the straits of florida and miami have rallied in solidarity demanding that washington intervenes abandoned notes of the decades long us. blockade is a key factor in its economic hardship. but president biden insists he stands with the cuban people's. united states stands firmly with the people or q or as they assert their nurse. alright? because the government from cuba to refrain from violence or attempt to silence the
8:09 pm
voice of the people or cuba having spent significant time in cuba during the special period. the harsh is 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 tennessee dro movement which have clear ties to the united states government. the trump administration ended the obama administration normalization with cuba. reimpose, brutal sanctions, not just on cuba, but on venezuela, blocking fuel shipment to cuba. the cuban government had to ration food starting in 2018. and now we have a pen demik where cuba has had to miraculously miraculously manufacture its own
8:10 pm
vaccine because of a needle shortage brought on by the u. s. blockade for humanitarian reason. i think that we should help the cuban people right now because they need to 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 corona virus pandemic and the economic contraction that's going on globally. not only cuba, the suffering economically. obviously they were not on putting to be able to then have to handle, you know, an economic downturn. the compounding of the bad economic situation because of the
8:11 pm
corona virus pandemic. but to put this all on the united states of america, it's basically like a police force, some sort of a stimulus or a bail out. renowned american filmmakers says that the u. s. was set to reverse its anti cuban policies. decades ago, before president kennedy was assassinated, oliver stone makes the claim in the latest episode of going underground, where he talks about his new j. f. k documentary. you can watch the interview in full from wednesday at r t dot com. missy. we have a us president in the white house backing forces against the cuban government plaza shown before we get onto the evidence which, which we wouldn't have without to have to pay the movie. in the new documentary, what is the relevance in case people are going? oh, 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
8:12 pm
current whitehouse of this documentary? well, i, again, i think that the relevance is the main point we were trying to make in the documentary 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 end this embargo to make the taunt with gas joy look good. and he was also at the same time over making an overarching deal with khrushchev of the soviet union. they had, they signed the nuclear test ban treaty together, which is amazing documents. first time the soviets, in the u. s. signed the treaty of this nature. and the war, the cold war was, was theoretically 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
8:13 pm
concurrent crises, events that happen every few years. i don't you know, this has been going on for, for decades. ah. it might be the beautiful game, but it is not looking good for the fight against coven. it is now feared that sunday's euro 2020 final could cause a big spike in cases. as the victorious italian team paraded their trophy through the center of rome, the enormous crowds gave little thought to cover the regulations. and that came just a day after tens of thousands of unmasked fans crammed together at the match. in london, the world health organization has described the event as devastating. am i supposed to be enjoying watching transmission happening in front of my eyes? the cool read 19 pandemic is not taking a break to night. sorry. corey to delta barron will take advantage of an vaccinated people in crowded settings, unmasked screaming, shout,
8:14 pm
and singing devastating. the $60000.00 fans barely amassed to be seen, a lack of social distancing. no checks and claims of the test results. that was the scene playing out at wembley stadium. sports journalist derek clark was at the game, says cohen controls were a joke. doesn't even need to do or freak attacks because you weren't even checked for you. what to say. they were just checking your phone for your ticket and you would want to see that you had a ticket on your phone just allowing you and doesn't matter if you had a negative test or if you really fake the test. i think more really, to the the think we should have taken more seriously. there's no checks for call within police. it was just a lot of search of people with motor bus security measures. should have been in
8:15 pm
police as well. but there just wasn't enough security or still security of the the checks health care officials warn 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 minister is still scrapping england's restrictions next week. the government points to a successful documation program with almost 35000000 getting a shot, and also a drop in deaths and the number of people needing hospital treatment. we will stick to our plan to live legal restrictions and to lift social distancing the restrictions are easy. the 19th of july, of course, is when looking at the final restrictions easing as well. so things are getting back to normal, but very little people willing masks and last nights, especially heading towards the underground station after the game allowed amount of
8:16 pm
people, but no dual monster reading. 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. it was already 3 or 4 young guys of it's already posted and you are watching our international phil ahead. the program as the cove it a delta strain threatened to become globally dominant in months. russia witnesses another grim record in daily coded depths. we look at the grueling everyday battle for lives. the russian metrics face this and other stories and just tiny seconds for now. this is our to international oh, i use ah, is your media a reflection of reality?
8:17 pm
in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for tyson lation whole community. are you going the right way or are you being somewhere direct? what is truth? what is faith in the world corrupted. you need to this and the join us in the depths will remain in the shallows ah, in 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.
8:18 pm
ah, welcome back. this is art international, across virus continues to evolve with the delta variance. now in more than $100.00 countries. strain was 1st identified in india and is believed to be the most contagious yet with the world health organization predicting. it will be the dominant variant globally within months. here in russia, the strain already accounts for more than 90 percent of new infections. that is, the strain continues to spread. russia has set another daily covert depth toll record with $780.00 fatalities 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 and the latest installment of his documentary series epidemic. with the luck, an empty bed, an empty bed. it's an empty space out there,
8:19 pm
a small one. so i wouldn't tear out $1347.00 beds. i hoped i would never come back here again and we're 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 warm. but of course the key point is that we were ready, well prepared. the worst thing is when you're not found out for him, what's the main pattern of this new strangers? you're looking for the company. 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 to waiting with that. and i think it's also hitting younger people. what do they
8:20 pm
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 for the day off today. and how many of those in the hospital are vaccinated? it's not well around 122-1000 patients from a lovely and believable 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 were your lungs damaged? 75 percent. did you get the vaccine? you know, 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 and those mad moms said we won't be vaccinated against measles,
8:21 pm
chicken pulse. we won't take any vaccine, someone put that idea in their heads. the vaccination is bad, but in fact, it saves lives and it helps vanquish the pandemic. so when do you think it will end? never goal time 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. 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 back and i did, but i didn't find time. and now i'm in a dire condition. ah, [000:00:00;00]
8:22 pm
ah, the meanwhile, there are reports of patients now being infected with 2 covered strains. at the same time. on tuesday, an expert at a top russian institute said the 1st such national case had been reported in an elderly woman as early as last year and of the report came from belgium 3 days ago for a 90 year old woman died while carrying both the alpha and beta variance of this virus several cases have also been detected in thailand. earlier, my colleague don 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 the reason why we know that these 90 year old lady has that double infection is because it did a very clear dna genomics. we have not done dna genomics and 99 percent of patients
8:23 pm
who had cobra. so probably we will have a lot higher rate if we would test everybody so precisely that older lady was unfortunately not vaccine. today from the information we have and from all the data that we have in the clinical purses, which are very important is that if you are vaccinated, even if you are in fact that 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 that death rates, which were amazing about a year ago will be much, much lower. so i think we can a little bit relax yet. very careful. and we need obviously more data and analyze it. more specifically, do you think that european union's state should be rejecting people with certain jobs? i mean, one example could be, for example, 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. think from the beginning, the indian one,
8:24 pm
we don't have data to analyze that, but remember, the indians have the delta barrier. 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 to be answered with key midterm and the congress elections looming. the white house has made a strange you turn on his defunct, the police pledge. as the crime rates saw, the ruling democrats now want to shift the blame for slashing law enforcement budgets onto the republican party. he was john off has his own very commentary. 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, there was no fence to sit on for politicians, it was pick aside of,
8:25 pm
i'll go home. so as republicans went, defend the democrats chose the fund, many obsolete 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 meet clearly this man called me up police department defendant. the police isn't radical, it's real. they post and pause to and pushed one by one police department soon. 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 defending efforts, ensuring their specific guidance to communities across the country to ensure that
8:26 pm
they have funding to get more community police around the country. some might say that the other party was for the funding, the police. i'll let others say that, but that's a piece jump fact. 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, on average in portland, which slash 27000000 from the police budget. it stands at a whopping 533 percent austin. that took away almost
8:27 pm
$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, 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 is not what people think. it's think it means, and it's actually a political tactic right now. sadly, anybody who really supports the defining the police move and they believe that the police are going to 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, regardless of whether 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,
8:28 pm
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. just before we go, here's a quick peek at the days other stories from around the globe. this is our 1st in lebanon. right? police, a fired tear gas, and during clashes with protesters of the countries capital after the families of victims of last years, import black took the streets to protest against the lebanese interior minister demonstrators. many of them carrying coffins to symbolize the dead or demanding an end to what they see as efforts to obstruct a probe into the tragedies blast killed over 200 people and injured thousands more with many people. blaming officials are storing explosive material that support
8:29 pm
profit. atlantic wildfires are raging across more than 1000000 acres of the western united states and canada. these images show demonstrating fires in the state of oregon and an even larger fire in bootleg was reached. more than 150000 acres and is threatening power supplies to california. u. s. national weather service has one dangerous temperatures. will continue in the region for the early part of the week with 47 celsius recorded in some areas. afternoon, i'll be back in just over 30 minutes with a full and fresh look. stay with us watching our teaching. ah ah ah
