the source for the peculiar, ah ah, injecting some pressure into efforts to vaccinate people against coven, governments, and companies around the world. really controversial ads promoting vaccine the, the key to unlocking normal living. but could have split society down the middle. we debate the, it's going to create a society, they just choose not to have it. they're creating their own apartheid. those who need to see should be happy to say it, but it's solely that it is not working. if there is $11.00 word that can explain it, it's great. the world health organization slams wealthy nations for driving up vaccine disparity around the world, calling on producers to increase supplies to developing nation. it comes with the
7:01 am
use. health regulator refuses to approve astrazeneca shops made in india, us approvals for, for oil and gas drilling under bite and appear to be skyrocketing to their highest levels since george w bush was in office. that despite the current president pledge to go green, ah, 2 pm here in the russian capital, and you're watching r t international. i am your host donald quarter. welcome to the program. simply looter chris, that's how british m. p. 's are slamming an ad by a top beer baker, which suggests getting a vaccine is the only way to return to normal life. lo, there has been a low uptake of jobs by those under 30 law makers, are warning heineken that the commercial sends the wrong message. the
7:02 am
heineken really ought to consider whether discriminating in loyal customers who may be, cannot be vaccinated for medical or other reasons. there were lots of people who can't be vaccinated and it's quite wrong that they should not be able to go into a pub and have a drink, ludicrous. i'm surprised to not making recommendations and other countries given their levels of vaccine hesitancy. the ad comes after you came ministers, reportedly drew a plans, do to start an autumn for mandatory vaccine passports to enter pubs and restaurants that's despite what's presently presented as a hugely successful inoculation program. with almost 35000000 people already having received a shot. britton's far from the only country where pro vaccine pressure is in full force and some apparently have gone too far.
7:03 am
when you just saw, there was an australian ad that's been denounced for scare tactics. and for using an actor who was in an age group, not yet eligible for the shot. australia has been suffering from vaccine shortages and subsequently a slow pace of inoculation. while critic say that that, that makes that that makes the use of such advertising even less appropriate. we debated the issue real worry for me about this is you're going to create to take society. that will be those people who com to have a vaccine for medical reasons or maybe for the own reasons, or maybe because they younger and they haven't seen invite yet. there is therefore going to be a to, to, is this, this is not going to create to, to the system. that's absolute. poppycock, people who can't have it for medical reasons can have a medical exemption. but if they just choose not to have it,
7:04 am
they creating their own apartheid. they have a duty, particularly young people now to do their bids for the rest of society. for those who need the backseat. so you should be label law generally. the whole numbers for today should have been cleared bodies of actually seen, but she doesn't actually work. they don't stall transmission. i'm just passing i suggest you check the wells roll bar war. i'm very suggest you stop spreading misinformation and face new jersey. you get behind this. there is a very big question over whether young people should have this faxing at all. and the reason for that is actually most young people will get cobit that recover. they'll be no long term sequentially, and this is about personal choice and responsibility. i want to do the 3 things. i
7:05 am
could go over and have a rough run. the young people have a jude say they should get vaccination as well. no one's talking about coalition. no one's talking about monday tree jobs, but if the young people want to have a full in active life, it's coming anyway. actually, we should be encouraging those people. certainly, i've a 40 to make sure they have a vaccine. i would like younger people to have it as well, but i do believe in personal choice in liberty, we don't believe in compulsory vaccination. but what we do need to do is to get back on track. rich countries are acting with pure greed when it comes to coven shots, that's the stance of the world health organization, which is called on vaccine producers to ramp up production. the delta variant is tightening its grip on the world right now, and many people have yet to receive a single dose of the vaccine. sorry to say it, but if solely that it is not working. if there is $11.00 word that can explain it, it's great. what we like is, and we have said it many times from w h. all the global leadership. do like
7:06 am
what astrazeneca is doing? as president got started in europe, has production in india. and if all the vaccines could do that, the volume could increase the spike mass production of the astrazeneca shot, the vaccine is running into acceptance issues. it's received a general approval by e regulators, but supplies made an india or not being given the go ahead. as ortiz peter oliver explains. you may think that all vaccines that have been given the green light by the world health organization and all the major bodies would be treated the same around europe. however, if you will, getting an astrazeneca vaccine, it may be worth while checking where it was manufactured. because if it was one of those that is being produced in india, it may not comb with the benefits you think it does. now, some european states including france, and it's really say they won't accept travelers who have been vaccinated with
7:07 am
astrazeneca doses manufactured in india. as it stands. it depends on where you want to go in year of whether or not you're indian manufactured vaccine will be accepted for entry here in germany, along with 14 other countries in europe. you're good to go anywhere else, including france, italy, denmark, at a rust of all the human to states. you face being turned away. despite the job being backed by the w, a job and the vaccination given as part of the un kovacs program. people who will already suspicious of vaccines will become even more suspicious. they could also lose trust in public health messages from governments, and be less willing to comply with covey rules by not accepting vaccinations approved by the world health organization. the un health authority says these nations may well be putting global vaccination programs at risk. such moves are already on the mind in confidence in life 7 vaccines that have already been shown
7:08 am
to be safe and effective effect in uptake of factors and potentially putting billions of people that twist health experts struggling to find the logic in some countries, refusal to accept jobs made in india, you can just cut off countries from the rest of the world indefinitely to exclude some people from certain countries because of the vaccine they received is wholly inconsistent. because we know that these approved vaccines are extremely protective . astrazeneca have said that they've now submitted the paperwork to the european medicines agency for their production facility in india. but when forthcoming and why taking so long as it stands, it falls to individual countries, which vaccines. they will accept the entry in which ones they want. but how people meant to know which ones will be accepted, where and whether the job they got thinking it would bring them a little more freedom will do just that. are all the decision for the you to make, because we know that the quality assurance of vaccines wherever they are
7:09 am
manufactured is a very high quality in relation to the astrazeneca vaccine that was manufactured in india. it's approved for use in the united kingdom. it does suggest that we do need better harmonization processes. we know that the medicine, the medicines and health care regulatory agency in the u. k. is very well thought of and is able to properly validate vaccines. and it, it does seem a bit odd that the european medicine agency isn't sufficiently confident about that decision. it doesn't feel that this is something is based on science. and it's interesting that we're not getting much of an explanation as to why is this happening. and it seems to me to be something that's, that has a tinge of politics about it. how are we going to ensure safe travel across europe
7:10 am
and across the world? if we're going to start to get very picky about what vaccine, what patches of vaccine have been used, and where the vaccine, where manufactured another grim discovery in canada. more than 160 unmarked graves have been located at a former school for indigenous children. and recent months, more than a 1000 such graves have been uncovered. a reminder of a dark chapter and can in canada's past when native peoples were forcibly assimilated and according to indigenous rights activists, laura lay williams. this is just the tip of the iceberg. of course, this is devastating. there's a tremendous amount of grief in our communities already and they're going to be more we have they're definitely going to be more down, you know, knocking here in the space as well. these residential schools were all over canada and all over the state. so are people are going through
7:11 am
a lot right now. it's so heartbreaking. and i feel like i'm coming to where i'm just now right now, like i'm just now since the 1st such unmarked graves were discovered in may, there has been nationwide outrage, catholic churches have been attacked and several even burned to the ground. moreover, on canada day in early july statues of queen victoria elizabeth the 2nd were toppled by crowds camping no pride in genocide. candidates prime minister has vowed to fight discrimination. and racism is difficult in moments like these to fully comprehend the decisions of the past that led to these tragedies and atrocities. but it is necessary to absorb them and understand them to be able to move
7:12 am
forward. these residential schools were tasked with forcibly assimilating native children into the predominantly white canadian culture and they were made to abandon their language and culture. many children became the victims of physical and even sexual abuse. more than 4000 are known to have died while confined to such institutions. lauraly williams again says it's wrong to call these places schools. what's been going on right now? when they're calling and residential schools? i really don't like the terms falls because the education wasn't. they weren't educating us there. they were been trying to farm i sent away people and i have so many examples of how genocide is still happening to us to the may you know, the governments how these policies in place that don't work with us. even with the
7:13 am
recommendations from all these inquiry, there are so many wires that have happened, none of them, none of the recommendations are taken seriously or are implemented back to work with us that could help us. and then, you know, when the media, the media is slowly coming on board with us. but you know, like for everything a murder, indigenous women and girls, they label less than the media as sex workers, drug addicts, runaways drunks. you know, so that doesn't help. and as well, so there's a lot of things to get done with the police, not taking reports seriously. and predators know that they could target us. and people in general know that they could target us. and so the janice that is still happening, you're coming up shooting, loading, and over a 1000 arrest south africa. seeing its worst unrest in decades as protests to rep,
7:14 am
wrapped over the jailing of a former president. we'll have all the details after the short break. ah, driven by a dreamer shaped by those in me dares thing. we dare to ask me. ah remember the great 964 bill dr. strange love you remember the subtitle of the
7:15 am
film was how i learned to stop worrying and love the bomb. well, i have a 2021 updated subtitle. when it comes to the surveillance state, how i learned to stop worrying and love be in. tell community folks today are not feared their doors the the, the, the ah, welcome back. and the biden administration's approvals for companies to drill for oil and gas appear to be reaching their highest level since george w bush was in power. that's despite biden's pledge for a green new future. archie's more gas the digs deeper into how america's president is not living up to his green clean image. joe barton's environmental policy
7:16 am
was an exercise in populism. he little did booted by the millions, promising the button environmental plat his version of the green new deal abroad to clean a world for our children. a gradual cure to our addiction to oral and pollution, half a year in biden's environmental policy has a new nickname. the green swindle, every indication is they have no plans of actually fulfilling their campaign promise. the result of that will be continued an increasing development of fossil fuels and public glance, which means more climate change. behind the cameras away from the wing and i audiences barton has been stamping out all drilling permits at breakneck speeds. since he took office, the u. s. government has approved more than 2000 all exploration permits on federal and native american lad. by the end of the year, they have projected to approve $6000.00 permits. the last time so many were handed
7:17 am
out was in 2008, and the george bush, my board. i said the bad populism climate change, climate warming, the global warming is the next system. so the threat to humanity, we have a moral obligation to do with it. former years of this man, eliminating all the regulations that were put in by asked to clean up the climate to clean up to limit the limit of emissions. will put us in a position where we are going to be in real trouble. biden is enough of a populace to say what people want to hear about oil and enough of a politician to do nothing about it. where did people even get the idea that biden isn't advised? mental champion was him and bama who approved oil, fracking liquids, which have been leading to cancer birth defects to serious health problems. and worst of all have be nicknamed the for chemicals due to their ability to persist
7:18 am
for a very long top. persist also in the human body. organisms are unable to flush out these chemicals entirely. they stay us and build up until we die. the obama bite in the ministration approved the use of toxic chemicals for fracking a decade ago. and all these years later, president joe, by this practice is haven't seemed to change a bit by himself places during the campaigns, a whole new fracking on federal lands. meanwhile, this administration is approving new frack and permits at face similar to trump, with no let up in sight to add scandal to injury the environmental protection agency, which approve all of this as a bit of trouble. c. whistleblowers have come forward saying that they were pressured, while reviewing new chemicals and toxins to approve the analysis and test with tampered with. they say to make dozens of new chemicals appear safe. environmental
7:19 am
protection agency scientists are the last line of defense between harmful, even deadly chemicals and the introduction into us commerce. and this line of defense is struggling to maintain its integrity. we can all applaud biden for organizing the us. they summit with world leaders is charming environmental policy and motivational speeches. but when it comes to hard action, that tough decisions don't expect biden, to step up. he's a relic of the will age, and one that apparently doesn't want to evolve. biden has no backbone. i don't think he feel he could have a mandate, which is a mandate for the earth mandate for everybody's lives on it, as opposed to being beholden to the fossil fuel and oil industry by increased amount of permits for drilling. he's clearly made
7:20 am
a statement that he's worried about how the republic is going to react, as opposed to the catastrophe. we're now facing me. this is an urgent, drastic situation where the urgent action is needed. biden is not taking her to action whether by deal he has to tiptoe around the republican to get the support from the climate deniers. or, you know, more likely, it's just the 2 parties of war in wall street that are basically catering to the market and putting this planet in jeopardy. the 1st protesters have clashed with riot police and lebanon. that's after the families of the victims of last year's port explosion in bay route took to the streets against the lebanese interior minister. ah, many of the protesters carried coffins to symbolize the dead and claim that the
7:21 am
interior minister is obstructing a full probe into the tragedy. last year's explosion left more than 200 people dead and injured thousands, with many blaming officials for allowing the storage of highly explosive materials at the port. in while south africa faces a severe fuel shortage has violent protests over the jailing of the former president have forced the largest oil refinery to shut down the plant which produces 35 percent of the country. fuel supply has had to shudder due to major supply routes being blocked. south africa has been rocked in recent days by riots and looting amid the country's worst tensions since apartheid. the
7:22 am
so what's going on? you must know what the word apartheid means for south africans. the scars of the past have not yet healed. last week, the countries former president jacob zoom was jailed for 15 months after refusing to show up in court for corruption inquiries. it's the 1st time a former head of state has been put in prison in post apartheid south africa. and here's an assessment of being arrest by the current president serial rema post. who answered mister summa, in 2018 parts of the country reeling from days and nights of public violence, destruction of property and looting of the sort rarely seen before in the history of democracy, the pass or violence of looting and anarchy, leads only to more violence. and devastation,
7:23 am
as well as suffering, at least to more poverty, more unemployment and more loss of innocent life. this is not who we saw the africans. this is not us. some pretty gruesome language flashbacks. although comparing zoom was ousting and the prosecution to the times of apartheid probably isn't right. has been succeeded by a member of his own party, the african national congress. given serial rama posts as background as an anti apartheid activist. you wouldn't really link the changes in power with race and plus, the former leader has been embroiled and corruption control overseas for almost 2 decades now. but the mere fact that jacob zoom out, spent years behind the same bars as nelson mandela, and that he's being jailed is an enormous trigger for the poor and his home
7:24 am
province and elsewhere. when you go, i'll start if you pose the love it did. so my, then the people on the street and that demonstrating the foundation is saying that i just got off the wood in case that then in every way again, it's probably south africa is appalling past. that's adding fuel to the fire and intensifying the anger and divisions, speaking of extra fuel to the fire. think of what kind of message this video posted by jacobs who my daughter would send to the st. opponents of the leadership which took over a video of shots being fired at the face of president rama post. now, unfortunately for the government, there are other more obvious routes of the unrest like low income levels and record high unemployment. almost exactly
7:25 am
a 3rd of the countries workforce is unemployed. the number is even higher, reaching 46 percent among young people. many thought these were taking time bombs that have now gone off. you may blame it on the pandemic, but rom opposes opponents. would say his government has done a bad job. addressing cove it to the president was expected either to call the anger over zoom, a sentence or to reassure south africans over the pandemic response. for now though, it seems he has failed at both with law enforcement, fully losing control of some districts. the army has been thrown at the forefront to help the police the world. busy is watching out for the next few days. over 200 local interpreters who helped australian troops in war torn afghanistan are still waiting for their life saving these is to be issued. that's according to veterans advocacy group that helps locals who worked for foreign forces. we've
7:26 am
had requested over 200 interpreters, they have been left behind, we have a moral obligation and i think one of type ability in the future to make sure that we get this process right. and we get those individuals and their families. he, besides being, we are quite quickly according to the group, there are up to 1200 people who need australia's help, including security guards, interpreters, and aid contractors. they're said to be in great danger with the taliban rapidly gaining control over the country. islamic movement is notorious for torturing and killing those who assisted the us led coalition. taliban rise follows the withdrawal of foreign forces on the orders of the us. president washington already pulled out 90 percent of its troops and the taliban has been moving in to fill the void. jason gaines who served 900 years and the australian military says the
7:27 am
government must protect those most at risk. what was saying now is a rush to the exits about the dentist. they were saying a research and tell them in looks like i could be stronger than what they were when we initially went to us in a stain. and what we have is of a table coating between which is the likely and guides employees i interpret that assist their forces. and at times with these try and combat uniform as many options viable to these try and government including, you know, getting those individuals some way site to a 3rd country, assisting them in compiling their applications and then searching in capability to process size applications and bring the piece was renowned american filmmakers claiming the u. s. was set to reverse its anti cuban policies. decades ago, before president kennedy was assassinated over stone has been speaking to
7:28 am
r. t 's going underground show about his new j. f. k documentary. you can watch the full interview 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 head 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 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 a detox with gas, troy look good. and he was also at the same time over making an overarching deal
7:29 am
with khrushchev of the soviet union. they had, they signed the nuclear test ban treaty together, which is an amazing document. first time the soviets, in the u. s. signed a treaty of this nature and the war, the cold war was, was the radically 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 and q, 60 years later. and renews today is just another one and along concurrent crises, events that happen every few years. i don't you know, this has been going on for, for decades. ah, that's a world news for this. our stick around for more in just about 30 minutes. see then me
