this is the way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening with the protests empty stadiums and a coven infected village of athletes. not quite the opening ceremony. they were hoping for the tokyo olympics to get underway, also ahead device. you know, ben and jerry, the ice cream, gets frozen out of israel after the company stopped sales and occupied palestinian territory economic terrorism for support for human rights. we debate the issue, but american company caving in to, to, to a mob demand, they can take
7:01 am
a moral stand and say, well i'm, i don't want to do anything with that product. so much for rules or atanya questions are raised over the decline of what was one of the most powerful navy in the world. as it turns out, only one naval destroyer. it's fully operational now. ah, the 2 pm here in the russian capital and you're watching r t enter national. i'm your host donald quarter. welcome to the program. now the opening ceremony for the long anticipated tokyo 2020 olympic games is now underway . the atmosphere isn't as celebratory as people might have been hoping for. cobra cases have risen to 106 with 12 abysses athletes infected living in the olympic village. now right here, you're going to see you're seeing some live pictures. there were all, there was also public outrage amid, despite in new daily infection,
7:02 am
with people in tokyo, urging authorities to cancel the event. still, the president of the international olympic committee and 5th that the games can be held safely. restrictions mean that for the 1st time in history, no domestic or overseas spectators will be allowed to attend. as archie's alia patricia reports, though the controversy doesn't end with the pandemic rule. the whole world is talking about how the pandemic has taken its toll on the olympics. and it's clear the games will be the oddest, most unusual, weird choose which ever word you like in history. it looks as if the number one, elliptic official just wanted to go with the flow of weirdness when he got the nation that's hosting the big event wrong. and our common target is safe and secure games for everybody, for the athletes, and for all the delegations, and most importantly, also for the chinese people, japanese people. anyway,
7:03 am
the locals won't be able to enjoy any of the actual arena vibes because the arena's are supposed to be empty. and so the newly updated a limping moto faster, higher, stronger, together also sounds a bit weird. physically, there ain't going to be that many people in tokyo, standing or sitting together empty stadiums must be depressing for the athletes, but probably not as depressing as the rules for staying in the olympic village. a ban on leaving the cove it free zone gps trackers. only 90 seconds allowed for conversations in the mix zone. only 10 minutes devoted for one meal having to fly out of japan. once your tournament is over. this is how we keep kind of a type in the olympic dining hall. first, we sometimes put these gloves on before we touch anything, we go and grab one of these trays. a individual try has been sanitized and washed.
7:04 am
is a pattern of the bottom floor of the dining hall as we walk around. obviously we've got i'm awesome in every little keep cool, the disinfectant life. so we walk down everything that we're going to touch the screen, the side the everything. it makes me time conversations pretty difficult because it's hard to get through them, but the metal ceremonies might also make the winners feel a bit lonely. they will be presented to the athlete on a tray, and then the athlete will take the metal him or herself. it will be made sure that the person who will put the mattel on the tray will do so only with disinfected gloves, so that the athlete can be sure that nobody touched them before. athletes also have to get used to fragile beds, which have been dubbed anti sex. although thanks to social media, we've already learned that beds aren't that useless in this peculiar aspect. athletes will use beds made of cardboard frames, but they've been assured the cardboard beds won't collapse. during sex,
7:05 am
the organizers haven't given up on the tradition of giving away thousands of condoms, but athletes will only be able to use them after they check out till the very final days of preparations before the opening ceremony. it wasn't clear if the olympics would go ahead, despite the overwhelming anti cove it measures athletes are testing positive, the nerves count has been on for a while and it seems to be just as pacey as the metal count, while the city of tokyo itself is under a state of emergency, they the case growth numbers have gone back to the peaks of winter and the locals would usually be so proud to be living in a whole city are now mostly against the event. one recent poll showed almost 80 percent. we're not happy with the decision not to cancel the whole thing. this explains the protests. the council merely
7:06 am
because holding 1000000 tick fuqua mutated trains to spread which will endanger own lives. i think it is wrong to have the olympics in the midst of a corona pandemic. i wonder about the government's stance of calling for self restraint among the general public. well, the same time being adamant while the limpid, someone else who's already made tokyo 2020. i. e 2021. out standing is laurel hubbard. the 1st ever transgender olympic athlete. she was born male and will compete among female weight lifters. this caused quite a stir with some of the sports community. going as far as saying that the i o c betrayed women by allowing this while the transgender are celebrating this historic milestone for them. the whole thing feels like a bad joke, life changing opportunities and missed for some athletes, meadows and the limpid qualifications. and we are powerless. i do believe that everyone should have access to sports,
7:07 am
but not at the expense of others. pauses including transgender efforts have been in place in the olympics and par lympics since 2004 laurel hubbard is the 1st to qualify. and 154000 olympians and barling bins over the last 17 years. trans people believe in sports. and finally in tokyo as become official athletes will be allowed to make political gestures and statements. but only before the competition begins. nothing like that is still allowed at the podium. so some teams have already announced they'll be taking the knee. well, that was easy to expect. however, when athletes were pulled 70 percent said they were against any protests anywhere at the olympic venues. aud unusual weird. have you chosen the right word? economic terrorism. that's how the israeli president has slammed the growing international movement to boycott his country over its treatment of palestine. it
7:08 am
comes after ice cream band bandage, a brand band in jerry's fro sales and what it describes as occupied territories. we believe it is inconsistent with our values for ben and jerry's ice cream to be sold in the occupied palestinian territory. we also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fence and trusted partners. now it's just you know, was you could see by this video. ben in jerry's decision has not been to everyone's taste with some sharing videos of themselves building it's products state side. some retailers have shown solidarity with israel by dropping or reducing stock of the ice cream brand. many palestinians consider israel, an occupying force and accused the country of war crimes. while on the other hand, israel denies that inside palestine. this latest news was met with wide support and i'm out i,
7:09 am
we support the decision and any company that boy cause these railway occupation, we hope the whole world will boycott israel product. i know we are pleased with the company's decision will support all companies that buy caught these rarely occupation and always railey settlement because of the war crimes and crimes they're committing against palestinians. i feel happy because there are companies who have a conscious knowledge of the legality of settlements in the palestinian territory. when an american company makes such a decision and is one of the largest the most widespread companies in the world, it is a beautiful thing about and jerry's is just the latest and a growing list of companies which is decide which of decided to boycott israel. an issue that sees tempers flare on both sides of the conflict. so here at r t, we put it up for debate. i don't think this is going to make a bit of difference and is really positive because it's so clearly so transparently . an american company caving in to, to, to
7:10 am
a mob demand. what we're seeing is some consumer power on the rise. this is not about the, you know, vs, for example, advising or lobbying supermarkets to stop selling ban injuries, foods and products. this is about consumers. i think the significance of this, however, is that this is coming from a u. s. company. and a few months back. the u. s. was going completely different direction. they were recognizing in jerusalem as is really and moving forward to, you know, recognizing the occupied territories as such. the left wing mom tries to take lots of complex situations like policing in america. we're like israel conflict with her neighbors and turn them into clear black and white right and wrong. when that's not the reality. if consumer power is growing, now you can call that left his mob or whatever. you know,
7:11 am
if people see george floyd being suffocated under the knee of a policeman, then will sympathize and you can call back left a small but, but i think it's just natural that people simplified and take action. they can take a moral stand and say, well, i don't want to do anything with that product. that's the kind of double standard of people say offensive things across the globe. you mentioned what happened in minnesota where's been injurious boycott minnesota. i could point out more than offensive things being done in countries around the world. oppression being done, countries around the world. where is the boy there when we're just going to focus in on israel and say, uh huh. someone in israel did something that was offensive to an arid, therefore we must boycott israel. it does suggest to me the sort of absurd, double stand in this absurd obsession. that does make me make me very suspicious of an anti semitism at work issue of settlement with she's not happening one month ago
7:12 am
or one year ago. it has been happening for, you know, a century or something. people are being kicked out of their houses, sometimes violently, sometimes under the premise or the guys of law and other people, other ethnicities coming and taking their place. you know, this has gone too long and every now and then because this issue is being solved, then it will resurface long standing grievance every now and then. you know, is shown bear in front of everybody and people remind themselves to make a moral stance. we're seeing a different path emerging in the middle east. think we're seeing countries like the united arab emirates, bahrain morocco saying you know what, what's best for our joint future in the middle east jewish era, but like muslim and jewish light is not boy cutting and shunning, but actually coming together, working together, investing together, collaborating together, and i would humbly suggest that the united arab emirates modeled abraham affords
7:13 am
model of investment in collaboration. and mutual recognition will produce a better future for everyone in the middle east than some sort of silly boy cutting, pushed by americans who knew very little about the reality. on the u. k. ones posted the most powerful navy in the world, but now it's maritime forces. are apparently as powerful as a fish out of water. that's after it transpired that only one of 6 royal navies, destroyers is currently ready for service. years have been raised that the situation is operationally unacceptable. an rti is more gazda of asked whether britain can ever again rule the high seas. britain has made quite the splash recently, the cowboy flora into russia's territorial waters, off the coast of crimea, all ukrainian waters. if you were a british captain. itching for an excuse to antagonize the russians. please change your thoughts about
7:14 am
a big splash, as i say, but it was bravado the supposed show of full symbolized, but h m as defend. the sailing into russian gun ranges was actually a bluff as it emerged that all other destroyers are in for repairs. h m. a defender. recently, at the center of a diplomatic grove with russia following the voyage of the cranial peninsula is the only vessel of the class without and issue. the other 5 type, 40 fives, all need work, or the planned or due to problems developed while, let's see. it's a good thing, but it didn't break down and caught me in waters. the last thing the royal navy need is a rush and tug boat coming to its rescue or a chinese one following on from the queen elizabeth strike groups inaugural deployments. the united kingdom will permanently assign to ships in the region from later this year. big blad britain has. i'm not entirely sure the chinese will be
7:15 am
all that impressed, given recent events by which i mean breakdowns but big plans, nevertheless, not easy. the rule navy can scrounge together enough operational ships, so 2 of them, which as british assures, have shown can be a challenge that ship experiences propulsion problems. as we have seen across the top 45 family than our carrier group would have to be forced to lean on an a, t a l. i to ensure that we have destroy protection. that really indicates bottom line that we need a bigger navy route. but tanya rule, the waves, the old song goes truly times bears know what? not that the bridge you should giving up again, big black, 24000000000 pounds marked for a new fleet. we are going to use extra spending to restore britain's position as the foremost naval power in europe. and till then it seems,
7:16 am
britain will depend on others to rule the waves in question is, is everyone a nato ready to fight and die and unintended hypothetical. war sparked by another british stunt, because it would be extremely embarrassing if they aren't up next. last week's deadly flooding and western europe have been brought under control. but there are more problems ahead for germany. it's hardest to region. the details after the short break. ah ah, with me
7:17 am
ah ah, i use the democratic dominated select committee investigating the events of january 6 on capitol hill has been constituted and will start proceedings next week. would be merely political theatre, a proverbial lunch room, food bite on national display. one thing is for sure these proceedings will reflect deep political divisions, fagley finding the truth looks to be of secondary importance. ah,
7:18 am
welcome back to the program. now a week after deadly floods caused large scale damage and disruption people in one german region are now being forced to reckon with new worlds. coban vaccinations have stalled and drinking water has been polluted with sewage. me, i live, i guess i'll look callbacks. nation center was hitting the catastrophe and his clothes and we all would have had to drive very far to be vaccinated. i'm here for my 2nd vaccination. i was supposed to get my 2nd shot from my doctor, but he was also victim of the flood. i'm also here with a charge group to help people who are affected because i was fortunately barely hit me. benji mentioned is on time and i expect the number of covert cases in this area to rise in the next few days. the people that work together in the confined space and the transmission of corona is easier because everyone is not
7:19 am
wearing mouth. nose protection, at least not in the pictures you see on tv. we can see that human to human transmission remains the main method of transmission and we had the safest drinking water in the whole world. it was almost star while that's over now. we have never had such a situation in germany. at least not this extreme. there is no difference between drinking water and sewage at the moment. the water that flowed through the streets in the villages was a mixture of excrement and rain. water contamination is very high. you shouldn't inhale anything or swallow anything because they're also environmental toxins and things like that ah, is fish. if you see just terrible, everything's destroyed. many people don't have any accommodation. the business is
7:20 am
also closed. it's like a nightmare. so much more financial help isn't necessarily because it has caused camille and some damage. the whole infrastructure must be rebuilt. many builders must be ripped down and rebuilt all the breach of here. we have just one bridge out of around 10 left, just one bridge. to get to our side, we now have to travel through the whole village. so we are really reliant on financial resources and we also don't have any work. everything has been destroyed, no jobs, and no money, any more news . as rather than struggle to cope amid the wreckage, a presenter from germany's r t. l. tv channel has been fired after being caught pretending to help in the clean up operation. a video shot by a bystander appears to show susanna olen, who was apparently smearing herself with mud. i was just before going on camera in
7:21 am
a stricken town and making the claim that she was lending a helping hand. the biden administration has taken its 1st steps against america's long time target of cuba flapping sanctions and the country's defense minister and an elite security forces brigade for legit human rights violations during anti government protest this month. this is just the beginning. the united states will continue to sanction individuals responsible for oppression of the cuban people. people in cuba took to the strength to vent their frustration with a legit, pandemic mismanagement and an economic crisis along with food and medicine shortages. a number of activists were detained according to officials, and the cuban president has denounced the protest as a foreign provocation and blame the problems on the us trade embargo. the by and the ministration is also mowing further, steps towards cuba, its considering expanding its mission in havana and the possibility of allowing
7:22 am
people in the us to send money to relatives and friends in cuba through remittance scheme, professor of latin american and caribbean studies, daniel shaw says other countries would be accused of meddling if they pursued the same similar policies towards cuba. several weeks ago biting had said that a change in policy towards cuba was not on the menu, but suddenly following this, this backlash, this wave of anti cuba. anti socialism propaganda from the right wing from all sectors of the liberal elite suddenly biden is hyper focused on cuba. but the intention is the same as it has been since 1959. and it has nothing to do with the liberation of cuba. and everything to do with the re colonization of the u. s. is done everything in their power, diplomatically military li, economically and politically,
7:23 am
to carry out their attempts to re colonize cuba. they blocked them off from access to technology to the engineer to social media. so how hypocritical now that the republican party and others claim that they doing everything to bring free, why fi into q? if china or russia were china, broadcast internet off the shows of cuba or radio radio, my fee is they've done from miami, the anti cuban cuban americans. surely the us government would cry foul towards russia was china here across the spectrum of the mainstream media. yet every day, cuba is there in the headlines because the u. s. has been pushing regime change in cuba. it's $959.00, s a true agenda. and that seems to be some inconsistency in reporting the cuban story and mainstream and social media and pro government demonstrator who asked the
7:24 am
united nations human rights commissioner, not to illustrate anti government protests with their photo header twitter account blocked due to quote unusual activity. the you and use this photo in a tweet, calling for the cuban government to address protesters, grievances, the post was later deleted and remade with the photo of the official who made the request. we heard from that pro government protest or in the picture who says it's a way to silence those who support ivana. again, even before i found there would be mass protest, i decided for myself to hit the streets. i found a cuban flag and took to the streets to demand the end of the blockade. and of course, the protection of our revolution, my friends broke, contacted me and showed my photo used by international media such as forbes, which used it as a symbol of the protest. of course, i was outraged and disappointed because that was not something i came to the streets for a while. so seeing such a manipulation, i decided to denounce and condemn the use of my image for something i was again,
7:25 am
what happened is a lie. so i decided to denounce twitter because it was twitter where you and commission, i used my photo and as a consequence to it, to decided to bend my profile, silence may be understood that in this way they would silence many of those defending the revolution in cuba. might be a time for a new dictionary. online ornithologist should now avoid using the word bird while horse lovers must no longer talk about philly's. that's the conclusion of a new york gardening group that was banned by facebook for mentor mentioning a garden tool. also seen as a derogatory term for women. ah
7:26 am
ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, we just got notified by facebook the photo use for all walla walla onions the it over the sexual and therefore cannot be advertised to be sold on the platform. can you see it well, from our news,
7:27 am
you can always check out our website, r t dot com and follow us on twitter. that's all for this hour, but we'll be back with more just about 30 minutes. so stay tuned. the i choose ah, is your media a reflection of reality? ah ah,
7:28 am
in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? type relation for community you going the right way or are you being that somewhere? direct? what is truth? what is in the world corrupted. you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows. ah, it's like you're watching down a street in a town. and in the store, windows are negative. in depression, you tend to go into the store and buy those thoughts and take them home as if they're yours. in mindfulness, you walk down the street,
7:29 am
you still see the sort storefront with the negative thoughts, but you don't go in and buy those gosh. oh right now there are 2000000000 people who are overweight or obese. it's possible to sell food that is fatty and sugary and faulty and addicted. not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that will never change that, that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific, it's down the split. what's driving the obesity epidemic? it's corporate. me. ah, so what we try to do is really to leverage on the knowledge of this partners from
7:30 am
developed countries and they offer field church services support was so we are, this is the broker 12 things from developing an emerging conscious to get access to state because clearly one of the issues, one of the show stoppers is the cost of the launch in the operation. the china is raising prices. they're the ones who are dictating prices. so we're creating a monster here. we created a brick and monster. we've got china economy zooming, they can raise prices at will, and no matter how high china raise prices for americans to buy their goods, biden's going to print more money to send to china. this is worse to still be in chinese finger traps that ever been in
