6:00 am
the with this we can then protest kashi with the lease in central powers with water kind of a part of the angry, demonstrated thousands across the country rally against the government's funds, lay coded, 90 mandatory for entering public places. as infection cases continue to ride back to some other big stories in the last week, we brought you a chilling effect on media. freedom is the reaction to a new law proposed by the u. k. government, which could threaten investigative journalists with prison if they exposed state secret. the
6:01 am
devastation in china from last spring called the worst flooding in a 1000 years. cool thing doesn't the death white thing i'd infrastructure breaching down plus bad weather elsewhere to an argument behind it, a grave systemic failure. the german government slammed them for not doing more to prevent last week deadly flooding. despite previous warnings, the devastations claimed almost $200.00 lives and cause damage amounting to millions of euro. ah, hello, sunday afternoon here most. go welcome to the weekly on, are with me, kevin. now in bringing it was happening right now, as you heard. also looking back in some of the headlines of the last 7 days, let's start with what's happening this weekend. paris police, fire water candidate, people protesting against plan for mandatory health passes in france. thousands gathered in the capital led to vent their frustrations over covey restrictions.
6:02 am
the who's do me the we've had figures from the ministry of the interior that said there were a 161000 individuals who decided to spend onto the streets to protest these new restrictions left and 1000 of those were here in paris where you saw those tensions with that water cannon being fired at the protest, there's also kick as being used. so i just wanna explain a little bit about what the health passes. this is something this already in use has been in you since wednesday. and basically,
6:03 am
what it means is places like cultural center, so museums at the moment, if there were more than 50 individuals inside, than to get inside, you have to show you fully vaccinated against cobra 19. or that you have got a negative p. c all and teach and test will the parliament is doing at the moment is looking at the bill that's expected to be passed this weekend, which will extend that restriction. now the minute for labor has also given an interview, stating that not only will those individuals want to access thought catholic restaurants means to house pass. so to work is old. so the establishment and if they are not in compliance with that, they could be suspended without pay, they will not be able to remain to avoid having to go straight to dismiss. so we are creating a new procedure for suspending the employment contract without remuneration and ended as soon as the employee comply. so only what people furious about the fact
6:04 am
that just a few months ago, president macro and had said that they would be no introduction of an obligatory house pulse. and that's exactly now what's happening. but also the feel that the idea that allure is going to be amended to be able to suspend employees without the right to any pay has really made them to seize. through whole regional fits of cinemas. these employees can be dismissed if they do not have a health path, either an anti dentist or both components of the vaccination and needed, and the letter of which should have been administered during the week before. they took me. this is completely unacceptable. what is happening in france right now is absolutely unbelievable. 2 years ago, we could not have imagined this at the moment. we are in a situation where people want to go to work and they are told if you can't, because you haven't been vaccinated. and this is despite the fact that for many years, we have lived more or less on the principle of freedom, equality and fraternity. and now it's all over the government. so this is what it
6:05 am
believe is the way forward, tackles because it pandemic, because from now, the government says is in the middle of a food wave of that. and it's saying that it needs to ramp up the number over vaccinations. we know that health workers will need to be fascinated by the middle september. they will be able to work, and again, there are still many people vaccinated people as well that i've spoken to who say that this is about the freedom, the right of individuals to choose what happens to their bodies. vonem push back elsewhere, europe to against coven policies. the same point. what you said here, agrees thousands of closing a mandatory vaccination program, which has been introduced to some groups. and clearly health workers. protests is supporting the use petrol bombs during the unrest. it comes to spike 45 percent of
6:06 am
the country's population. they're already being inoculated to get around a virus. and the u. k. capital is also seen in my 7 station under the slogan, worldwide rallies of freedom. but not everyone shared the same message and same scuffles broke out between the companies themselves. the process happening just days off to major coverage restrictions were lifted there. abroad this one to locked up for reporting the fate facing journalists. then, if a proposed british dr. floor is past reporters in this source. it could be treated like spies and publishing government secrets could see them jailed for up to 14 years. tease senior correspondent reported on it. a journalists can do as much harm to britain as a foreign spot threw argues the british government in this 66 page proposal, which erases the line between investigative journalism whistle. blowing and spies are all the same under the proposed new secret law. although there are differences
6:07 am
in the mechanics of and motivations behind espionage and on authorized disclosure offenses. there are cases where an unauthorized disclosure maybe as or more serious in terms of intent and or damage. what's more, the legislation seeks to remove without blow protections, even if what they leaked is in the public interest. and stead advisors would be whistleblowers to, to go and talk to their boss if they have a moral issue with something that they're doing rather than reveal it to the public that the government is engaged in something immoral or illegal trays is an interesting question. what if it's their boss that's doing something immoral like the health secretary and leaks video kissing a coworker off that he'd obliged millions to abide by his soon strict social distancing measures? i understand the enormous sacrifices that everybody in this country has made that
6:08 am
you have made. and those of us who make these rules have got to sit by them. and that's why i've got to resign. officially. this new beefed up version of the secrecy. lou has nothing to do with the resignation of hancock officially, but it would have made the scandal very nearly impossible. see any journalist who shared this with your shed anything that they received problem with blue, couldn't face the sentence of more than a decade behind bars. due to the new way of defining espionage, including obtaining sensitive information, as well as pass it on journalists, whom are simply working. their stories can potentially face up to 14 years in prison by receiving some secret information. there's much more to it. aside from the harsh sentences and the least than the data bases of potential threats, there are special powers that the government wants to give itself the power to
6:09 am
punish and restrict individuals, be the journalists or foreign spas. if the government doesn't have enough evidence to jail them, there may be a strong intelligence case to suggest as an individual is engage in hostile activity, but to limited evidence that could be openly used to support criminal prosecution. the civil order could include a range of restrictive and preventative measures, including measures to prevent an individual associating with certain people or from visiting specified sensitive locations. currently, these proposals are being polished off at the foreign office, but could soon be in parliament that make no mistake. this, this new secret law would give the most authors area and regimes in the world a run for their money. in the past, we feel blowing and investigative journalism, as we know, it's in the u. k. dead. this is one of the biggest wide ranging attacks on breaths. freedom, perhaps, since since democracy came to britain,
6:10 am
the definitions in the report are very old indeed. in fact, with journalism doesn't come up once in the 66 page report itself fundamental to the 56 page report. journalists can be more dangerous than spice. obviously the u. s. is prosecuting fe julian assigned to the espionage act. this own secretary board secretary is backing a consultation document and suggest that journalists that much worse than spies supplies after all, can work for one government or another government or one act jones. if they publish the material, everyone can see it. so journalists have to be done. that is, leave the level of logic and deduction that is being used here by the british government in raising freedoms and rights of the free press here in this country that have been that have been created and modified over centuries. so that's,
6:11 am
that's quite how dangerous the official secrets act reform looks to be some scary, dramatic weather. and again the last 7 days as time led to really devastating floods and central china, at least 50 killed and over 300000, forced to flee their homes. and what said to be the heaviest rains in millennium, the while some of the flooding has receded whole streets for a while in some cities were turned into raging rivers. the 13 were ramping up rescue recovery operations. many people are still reported missing and not just their flooding planes,
6:12 am
nearly 200 lives in western europe to another 300 accounted for the floods. of course, damage estimated that more than 2000000000 euro. meantime, a row over it is a background opposition in germany is calling for the interior minister to quit fleming. and personally, for the country being unprepared for the deluge, volunteers been doing the best they can to help clear the devastation but crippled infrastructure. coupled with, as you can see for yourself, huge polls and deborah is making it really hard to move around for life to return back to a semblance of normality for the moment. now. but to that row, a 100 politicians in climate experts came, the government knew about the impending catastrophe in advance, but simply failed to wanted citizens on the other rebuff. all officials say, no, that's not the case. they claim the worsted areas were alerted. either way it's lead money to us. what when so badly wrong? as a europe correspondent found is before the flood struck west in germany, belgium looks in bergen, the netherlands, the copernicus,
6:13 am
satellites that make part of the european float awareness system detected problems where on their way, for the region, people in our viola, one of the worst effected towns in germany have been critical of the warnings, or lack thereof that were given or done can do that. no one was expecting it. the warning came too late. a public announcement, 5 or 6 hours in advance would have helped to say some essential belongings. another problem is that many elderly people didn't even understand what was going on if they didn't hear anything about it. and then they're also the foreigners. everything should have been organized better. people should have gone door to door or received a warning by phone. in the history of what happened with the opinions of experts analyzing what happened, today's information, you can just refer to the fact that people were informed by text message. you have to imagine how much information is being dumped on people every day already. but then they say, yes, we send out messages instead of targeting people on the spot and perhaps getting people out of their homes in particular places. visiting the scene of utter
6:14 am
devastation caused by the flooding and west in germany, john langler merkle pledged more efforts to tackle the challenges posed by climate change. quickly, chavez, which is the germany, is a country that can overcome this financially. germany is a strong country and we will oppose this force of nature in the short term, but also in the medium and long term to a policy that takes nature and climate into accounts more than we have done in recent years. there had been warnings from the weather in 2016 the river, far bursted banks, causing damage to bridges and other infrastructure. they were repaired, but nothing was done to protect against future high waters. it's not a secret that streets in bridges and all these dams are not in a good condition and nobody's investing in it. and they're just like waiting to something happens again, 5 years ago, we had a duration similar to this one and a bridge in the near broke and they just repaired like it's okay for now. and
6:15 am
nothing happened till then. and now the bridge is gone again. this part of germany is no stranger to flooding, which banks the questions. why were the authorities not better prepared for what nature would throw out them this time? and will lessons be learned from this tragedy patrol of all see in cologne, germany trying to get nonsense that we spoke to and n p for job is left pod, he tells us the government's repeatedly broken his promises when it comes to emergency systems checks. we are witnessing a fatal or a monumental sailor on different levels as you know, we have to germany, a federal system. so it's not easy to identify where the problems aware that the, the federal government is free. they, they do that last year to check their allow system and this was a failure and renown to do it again this year and to repair it. and they didn't do
6:16 am
so. no, they are not doing this for next year. it seems that the warning systems and of following evacuation in other countries were a better organized germany, which is the just because the high developed country. but there's a problem in that system and we have to check it and we have to make it better. there are particular responsibilities. people are not sitting there with of the big party. they for precise, very different kind of headlines. my next story in the wake, williams beach humble team in a spot to hold water over the choice of outfit in this case. and i come prepare a short the european handle federation though had forbidden them for wearing anything other than the regulation brace and it all raise questions about the sexualization of female sport. we covered it, poly boy could took
6:17 am
a candid look 2021 this summer. oh, sure. oh lack thereof in the case of the norwegian speech handball team which has been fined 1700 year a for wearing shorts in a match recently instead of the regulation, teeny tiny breed. while the old all the 3 rules mean that the norwegian beach bass are obliged to strip down, apparently the athlete called lizzie, a brain has been told that her shorts were too short. a recent competition in the u . k. i. i suspect she's been said no, i didn't get a bad binding headed shaw. 2021 is getting confusing. you got transgender weight lifted at the pick female power limby, and being told to dress more appropriately and female handle has being punished for
6:18 am
trying to dress more comfortably. in the case of the norwegian, the team actually the european handbook federation for permission to play in shore . but the federation said no, they did it anyway. they were last with a fine. i have not been given a good reason. they just the telling us the, this is the room i'm the man get to play like they're the man rules state that the agree, the swimming chunk like short can finish 10 centimeters above the kneecap. while the women are going to have that on display maintenance effect to alive while running around doing strenuous exercise in front inspect cases. i'm being watched on tv. you could possibly have anything to do with the caliber view is watching the full way to be
6:19 am
there because it's always a summer very common people at the university of alabama, i analyzed the beach volleyball at the 2411. they found that 20 percent of the camera shot were tight shot of play is chat. wow. the sent were of that camera operations. some of you. so the research has concluded that the visual coverage of the game confirm that sex and sexuality, we use not only to promote the me, but just tell the school to you is around the world. i love my something tells me that wouldn't be the case if the male player was my name ever to the rose. this is our national high. you want to the weekly
6:20 am
a recap of the stories of the week talking which inflation is soaring in the us. but joe biden says, joe, worry to the majority of worried americans being hit in the pocket by rising prices were across it and much more after this little break. ah, ah, so what we try to do is really to leverage on the knowledge of this partners from developed countries and they offer free of charge the services support little was so we asked, this is sort of a broker 12 things from developing an emerging countries to get access to state because clearly one of the issues, one of the showstopper is the cost of the launch in the operation, the
6:21 am
driven by a dreamer shaped by those in me i think we dare to ask me oh, with inflation in the us sitting a 13 year high people are rapidly filling the pinch. they're a poll published this week says 88 percent of americans are worried about the disproportionate increase in living costs. but president biden claims, it's just
6:22 am
a glitch. it certainly seems to be having little impact on his spending plans at the moment. our experts believe in the data shows that most of the price increases we seen are, were expected, and expected to be temporary. nobody suggestion is unchecked inflation on the way. no serious economy. let's check that no one checked inflation claim. now if you have a car, it cost you twice as much to run it as it did last year. fuel prices have double your daily breakfast now comes with an 8 percent price. as the cost of milk, bacon and fruit have gone up. on top of that, you've got consumer prices that have hit their highest amount since 2008. now, despite the presence assurances, america's working families already being hard hit by the pandemic are starting to feel the pinch. the groceries are definitely out. and also the rents are also going up and just household items, making serious progress to ensure that it works the way it's supposed to work for
6:23 am
the good of the american people. while construction material is out of this world, somebody's making some good money. and i think it's because joe biden, we could help families in small business, is whether the ups and downs or as the economy recovers. i don't buy anything. what is the, what the government says nowadays? i, i truly, truly don't look, we brought this economy back from the brink. now biden refuses to hear those voices . perhaps you listen to those within his own party labor market tightness, behavior of housing, markets, and asset prices all rising in a more considering way than i worried a few months ago. this raises my degree of concern overheating scenario. there are huge uncertainties, but the focus of concern now should be on overheating. and if that's not enough to change the president's mind on the economy, perhaps this comparison is the wake up call. he needs. the u. s. is in the very best position from a long term point of view. i don't see how these can and well, when we're running now, budget deficits,
6:24 am
something like 15 percent of g d p. this is beginning to look a little bit like a lesson american con, pre printing and spending money like there is no tomorrow, as pretty clearly got people concerned. biden gave the excuse that the spending is necessary to tamp down inflation, which is really close out of nothing in common. the, you can't stop the consequences of monetary printing by doing even more monetary printing, which is what it means to spend the level of money. and the fact is that biden, and all of his advisors and the political party that he represents our big spenders, and they want to spend more money, they think that the u. s. government can go into infinite amounts of that. there's no limits whatsoever. they really believe this 5, mature is us. the problems are just temporary, but perhaps it's a bit like the pandemic and the economic aftermath. it's a bigger problem than was 1st thought. but it seems to be a problem that biden's apparently incapable of recognizing fail mop and r t new
