2:02 pm
but to make fun of the president as a dictator is blasphemy. time and time again during his presidency manual, my court has defended freedom of expression, he in from the bliss to me. there is also in france, the freedom to bless fim, which is attached to the freedom of conscience from where a stand. i'm here to protect all these freedoms. so it's not up to me to qualify the choices of journalists. i can, i can only say that in france, we can criticize governments, presidents to be blasphemous, etc. it was to be french to defend the right to make people love the freedom to mock, to ridicule, to caricature which will tear claimed was the source of all the others when he gets you will not give up caricatures drawings even if father is retreat. that freedom is also enshrined in the declaration of the rights of man and all the citizen so does have limits whether or not they extend to the sum billboard. depicting corn as
2:03 pm
hitler is another matter. it was erected as part of protest against the cooper 19 restrictions in placing problems, but it picks his anger so much, so he's now steering its creator. misha owens, feel the who defends that billboard says it's not necessarily a comparison with the not the leader. you see hitler, but you can see starlen or i can see charlie chaplin in the dictator. now when satirical magazine surely do read, publish, controversial cartoons over them was a profit loss court and defended. right to do so. that fresh publication that sparked off its own chain reaction leading finally to the heading of a sheet. so by taking out billboard is, is a case call and having double found the lungs mandatory vaccinations
2:04 pm
and health policies have triggered to protests in france. now some demonstrators compare the country to dictatorship, but it seems cool. it's these billboards which all of simply the law school. it's not the 1st time it's an image has been published, showing that comb with a likeness to hitler back in 2018. the french daily views, this is the cover photo on its weekly magazine. so that feed, provoke, sharp criticism. at the time, the paper said that it was intended to do that. and all was hunky dory. and while citizens in france enjoyed the right to insult the president mat cool, just as an would really fits in is protected him, so from insults on public defamation. now, if the billboard is sound to see such, he couldn't spend up to
2:05 pm
a new imprison as well. as being struck with a fine of up to 45000 euros, but perhaps by suing the billboards, create a macro, and he's actually being counter productive here in the fact that he is warring even more attention to it. so let the be ski or t, paris or a lot now to i guess, so lose human rights and civil liberties activist joining up there on the international a very war. welcome to you. thanks for coming on the program tonight. micron has a long been, well, he's long posed as a staunch advocate of the freedom of speech, the freedom of expression, for example, defending the right of surely abdomen to mock and caricature. the prophet mohammed, for example, how is this billboard somehow worse than one of the cartoons? i'm look, we have to take, notice that, you know, this is not the 1st time we see the relief and the block with the upper french leads a couple of years ago. the minister of interior, our clothes,
2:06 pm
making fun of the french flag person, was even the fire lost her job in organizing a contest in which the interesting picture showing a man wiping his behind with a, with a french dry guess one of the contest. and we saw him going to court himself in the morning praising, shall you do for they are cartoons. and in the afternoon the afternoon, a scalding shop window, a friend, she's rather nice for doing his job as a journalist. and now we see this reaction for you and my call. so now it is beyond double standards in front. it has never been above freedom of expression for a said because freedom of expression would be universal to everyone. it is only above protecting the privilege of expression of the image, which means as long as you are on the dominant side, you can make when everybody airs the floor or the blogs, the, you know, the, the arab, the, loosely, the women, etc. but once you mixed the and the power you place the presentation. so now you are new fizzy prosecution, and that's really fearful that person at this again opposed to french people to the
2:07 pm
data stop standing for everybody to be the most expression. this, the president doing that, which means double standards on the issue. yes. so we know that the french president of ano micron is now trying to sue the mind behind these reportedly offensive billboards. i mean macro and is still a french citizen. he still does have the right, doesn't he to argue his case in court? don't you think? yes, he has a right to argue with a president he's so he should be the person who guarantee that everybody has the right of expression. if it is ok personally, due to mark the death of a 4 immigrant child was body was found dead on the short will they needed their indian 6, then it would be okay too much money went by court and portray me as a hitler as muso duty or whatever, he's a president, he should be above that, that he shows that this fight, quoting for this new brand of presidency, that the president should be a monarch about everything. he's a very thin skin. and in that matter with different trump,
2:08 pm
it's ok for him to mark everybody with a day mark we're which is him. he becomes upset and wants to prosecute people. so yes, you basically, you're saying that this, this is an attack by the precedent on the freedom of expression. that's ultimately what you are saying. yes, definitely, this is a frozen track against freedom of expression. and brother, president, seem sort of. what about, do you think though, i mean, i was going to say, is it possible the president is in a way, shooting himself in the foot, because what he's going to do to that he's going to draw more attention to these billboards and anyone else who's got any good ideas for, for lasting the president will make fun of the president they could get billboards to. is he drawing too much attention to this? maybe? well, this is what's called a barbarous rhythm. the fact when you ask people to stop doing it, they will do it and do it again and then a double down on it for, for taking the foot. i think it really when my course shot him set so many times in the you got in the feet and left the so not many will my sleep, the tourism. this will make more progress to the prison. and this will also make
2:09 pm
the anger towards him go even further. we have to remember that the menu item is deeply unpopular in front and that to him, he's a little go. we're going to plot for him to bring french people together. but for him to, for the divide into hope of conquering and will this with dickens stepped off to soon get person for a cartoon. i don't think it makes him look any greater for the rest of the world. as, as you say, there are, there are elections living in the near future in france. but i mean, do you think for a moment, do you think it's a little bit tough for a little bit over the top to compare the french president throughout all hitler? it could mean like, you know, we can have our opinions on the drawback we can do so we can say it's too much, we can say it is an over exaggeration, but from there to buy it, that's something different. you know, because of course we have responsibilities, citizens with them, but if you come and prosecute people on what they draw and what they say, who is to say then to stop this or that? where do we draw the line?
2:10 pm
we knew we knew our censorship because we always do that. we never know when it ends. and again, in many ways, my call has stage 4 and 4 other prosecutions, i guess, cartoons. and of course, those will be prosecuted. it will be the ones who are making fun of the people in power, the reach and power for. yes. why here human rights and civil liberties activists joining us live here, anaki international. we appreciate your insight. thanks for your time today. thank you, sir. well, another european union state has lost its patience over the question of illegal migration. and the austrian government blasted the european commission for doing nothing to stop the influx of illegal migrants. its interior minister says austria is taking matters into its own hands. now i will start looking for allies on that front. there is no support from the commission, which spends time to basing about refugee distribution issues. it makes no sense to give people smugglers thousands of euro's. the e u commission does not act. that's why we act ourselves. the author and government
2:11 pm
has already opened discussions on border security with neva, hungary and the czech republic is also i want to see strict border controls. austria has reinforced its eastern frontier by deploying $400.00 additional soldiers and former austrian minister of foreign affairs. current can nice old told why the use approach to illegal migration continues to be a failure. what we have seen over the last that case and actually it started in 9095 to somehow try to take a common approach when it comes to my creation. nothing has worked. we are in a big state made off of a lot of unilateral measures taken and it will lead to more confusion and it will lead to the non implementation of international creek is what we see that each and every year member of state is
2:12 pm
somehow condemned to have laid on its own maximum by and try little dry natural action. but the common european migration at chanda is not their maximum bring back people to turkey, bringing them back to afghanistan and all in both cases, it doesn't really work. and other acts of a police brutality has been caught on camera in america. 2 officers in colorado have been charged over the violent arrest of an unarmed mixed race man. a warning he may find the following video disturbing. oh, what do i do? both i do. what's your hands on for you? okay. don't stop on it. oh, oh oh, i don't have the police officers identify the suspect kyla vincent as being wanted by authorities for several offences. after 2 other men fled,
2:13 pm
mister vincent appeared to initially comply with their commands during the arrest, but apparently they resisted while being handcuffed. he was subsequently choked, forced face down on the ground, uneven pistol whipped by one of the officers of vincent was then taking a hospital, requiring treatment of the officers in question have since been charged with the excessive use of force. me, aurora police chief, a strongly condemned conduct. does not police work? we don't train. this is not acceptable. the definition of police brutality is itself is a problem. you are you, you use the force necessary to an effect in a rust. you keep yourself safe to keep the citizen safe and you actually keep the person that you're arresting safe. a job with a police officer. the street top is not to punish. that's the job of the courts. so white of dish, not a punishment for conviction. if so, if a police officer was aware, as was in the case of derek shelven, that he was being video camera right. your body cameras recording you and they were
2:14 pm
this comfortable with their actions. there is a serious epidemic and a serious problem. and then police officers, history needs to be looked into. we need to look at how many other times is that person been accused, or have they taken excessive force beyond the level of what they were lawfully around the allowed the youth? because if somebody's feels this comfortable to get this out of control on video camera guarantee, it's not the 1st time they've done this. as an incident like us to defend the police movement is not properly communicated to the public. the de, from the police moment is a political card. it's what the politicians are using to wind up bolstering your base for more voting. it really just removes programs funding for certain areas, for police officers. pre people are dead and guardians have been hospitalized with burns as wildfires find by strong winds or weaken devastation across southern turkey, one coastal town and 18 nearby villages and districts were all evacuated hotels in the region. doing the same. the focus president spokesperson has called the
2:15 pm
situation a national disaster. russian planes are assisting and putting out the fires and one local journalist sent us. this report started having my location today at 6 hours ago. there were a big bar started in the back. you can see notice looming and the location hold each miller. so then the smoke cover all their own. and they thought that people were in the nearby because that's what the people here really stressed about 2 or 3 should be able to do that. they've got to pick the controls are still on the way they're on the program on off the taliban has couple in it. sites knocking out the power grid and leaving the ass guy and capital in the dark. we have
2:16 pm
a report from the city just a moment. i think i will i when i would show the wrong one,
2:17 pm
i'll just don't rule out the thing because the after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves will depart. we choose to look for common ground the it's going to be to join us for this program. afghan forces have managed to rest about control of a key northern district from the taliban. the retreating military stuff behind a trail of deliberate destruction. locals describe some of the damage inflicted on their homes. my mom, it's over there, the attached large amounts of explosive and blew up all the buildings around here. and i'm moving in the quick as you can see,
2:18 pm
the taliban stole all our things and even the windows and the doors, they took away all the usable materials and left behind, only destruction or bring up. i'm not for you here on their program to get an idea what's going on here. the taliban is ultimately conquered large areas of the bolt providence, including the district of colorado, here on the northern border that was a month ago. and the terror group has been ascendant. taking more territory in the last 2 months than in the last 2 decades. and you can see here on the map, it now has a dominant presence, not just in the north, but also in the north east. central regions as well. also closing in on key cities, including that of conduce and kandahar. the recent taliban advances of deeply was in the humanitarian crisis and that country, according to the un refugee agency, around $270000.00 afghans have been forced to flee their homes just this year. a citizens are trying to find shelter in the neighboring states. among them, pakistan was becca st. on to jesus. now they have also been repeated attacks on
2:19 pm
power transmission towers in the capital cobble. the most recent took place just a few days ago, resulting in a massive black out in the city, which is still struggling to restore electricity in some of the districts here. just a bit earlier in the program we got on the ground account from local journalists allow for wadi what a much of carbon cell does not have the regular power that is should have. this is because of the regular fighting on the highway in northern afghanistan from where these power loans and infrastructures come. it's important electricity from the gym son and his bikes. but we've also seen deliberate attacks where explosives, i've been placed, and these power towers continue to be blowing up the countries, you know, power provider, the national power provider. it's trying to do its best. it's even lost its workers,
2:20 pm
as they have tried to restore power. but it's just not power, it's either the infrastructure, buildings, bridges, or church schools clinics. they've all been targeted. so i want to sounds, infrastructure continues to be under constant attacks as we have seen, very, very high levels of violence, where fighting is now in and around. major provincial capitals as well as district centers are under attack, especially in northern. i find this on the escalation and i kind of stop comes amid the withdrawal of us troops. just a few weeks ago, american soldiers left washington's largest african base, which had been the operating now well, the main hub for the past 2 decades will see on a boy to discuss the situation in afghanistan with the countries for my president, mr. 100 cars. i you can watch the full interview on sunday, but for our quick preview, the taliban. correct me if i'm mistaken, but i think ever since it emerged in the midnight tonight,
2:21 pm
is your views on what that movement represents and whether it's good or not for your country have changed. what do you think about them now? i rose against them when they would empower because i saw them violating the rights of south can people. but when my government came, when the republican i give them a positive, do apartment and dominion of the winter, settle down in their homes and begun a peaceful life. then suddenly the united states and some of the local elements begun to attack the color on homes and type religious and forced him to free the country. it was this violence committed against the african people in the name of fighting the taliban. that led me to calling the taliban and our brothers because they belong to our country. they are our countrymen. do you think they will graham the same amount of tolerance? they will not to they will not, they will not. again,
2:22 pm
people are giving them an opportunity to receive peace when the african people call for peace. this means and paternity to co exist and to allow the country to progress if they don't allow that. and if they continue to, to, to seek their own domination of count on the way they think of it that will give rise to a national uprising without a doubt. and i'll be one of those people. russia still lists the taliban as a terrorist organization. and for the record, it's the world's deadliest terror group with, i think almost 5000 deaths attributed to it in 2019 that's 3 times more than diet. in the same year. do you think any law abiding countries should be talking to terrorists all labeling any group as tara is given how politically charged that's more than the tyler bond being listed as terrorist by the united nation is the cause of their action, of course, and again, everybody is trying to talk to them,
2:23 pm
there is no alternative because there are no alternatives things when drunk, things went wrong and they began to re emerge and part of the population went with them. the answer is not continuing to fight the answers to find the solution and bring the solution. and that is what russia has done and we appreciate it and we wanted to continued in fullest. so yes, talk to them. there are some p is no other alternatives or just from out here on the program. let's check out some of the headlines and brief for you from all around the world. for example, a new russian module has just connected to the international space station. one of the largest, yet it's called now walker or science and is intended for just that at the module has long been awaited by the scientific community and will function as an on board laboratory with, with a 13 special experiments already planned. china. this was
2:24 pm
a big one here and it's like measuring 8.2 in magnitude. it struck just off the coast of alaska. it was the largest rumbled, i guess since $964.00. a su, nami warning has been issued with people advise to go to higher ground. we understand now off to shocks. for health is far away as new zealand face to face meeting with a wells most powerful man might give you plenty to chew over. and that was literally the case for the bellows opposition. figure svetlana tech on sky, who was seemingly delighted to receive some. whitehouse cookies, offer a meeting with joe biden. although not everyone on social media found her joy so easy to digest. it wasn't a political kind of meeting. we spoke around 10 minutes, but it was very warm. after we said goodbye, he went out of the room. but then a door opened and joe biden walked in with a box of white house cookies for me. it reminds me of cookies, which i a small piece of data sent by
2:25 pm
a web server and stores in the user's computer. cook is allow access to a client's most important data and control of it. bingo. that he had oscar biden summit turned out to be much more successful than we thought. the u. s. president provided material assistance to the young republic in the form of a box of cookies salon took, an oscar said joe biden gave her a box of cookies. this has either become something of a tradition, or grandpa knows how to troll. i wonder what to have oscar could talk to by in about, well, except will there be cookies? according to, to cut off sky of that meeting with, by the last for about 10 minutes during which you called on the us lead at the help . but the roofs make a successful non violent transition to democracy. she's also met a number of other high profile political figures as part of a to it her res, international pressure to topple, but she's ccs as the illegitimate presidency in belarus. a journalist, julio rivera told us why this meeting might not yield quite the results. the leader
2:26 pm
was hoping for i don't think that bite in really invested the amount of time that he probably should have in order to create the impression that this is an issue that america is taking seriously. i mean, this is kind of like, you know and be problem the andy griffith show diplomacy. like when we give you cookies, it doesn't really make a lot of sense. and people make jokes about a team kind of is, you know, inexperienced. and i think that when you don't have the appropriate team and, and p r people and kind of pressing you, going to be kind of made into an international mockery as we're seeing now on social media. because of some of the details of the meeting. really, this is the biggest meeting of her life, so if you want to make an impact on an important issue, the last thing she should have talked about was cookie. more on that story right now, a few clicks away at r t dot com for the meantime with plenty more news coming your way here on the program, on our web, back in about half and ah,
2:27 pm
the algorithms and neural networks have been following us every where we look online because our relationships are what matters most. and that's how we find meaning and how we make sense in our place in silicon valley see don't mention in their sleep presentations . however, the ghost workers who train the software humans are involved in every step of the process when you're using anything online. but we're sold as this miracle of automation behind your screen. it's real workforce. that seems algorithm is for next to nothing. on a very good day to do $5.00. now a really bad day. i could do 10 years worth isn't movable by design. it's about
2:28 pm
labor costs, but it's also about creating layers of lessening responsibility between those who solicit the kind of work and need it. and those who do it from germany, where a long study finds that the, the biomass of sly inside the weight of flying insects fell by 76 percent in the last 26 years. so instead of just becoming much, much less common, which means all the jobs that they do are not being done anymore. and that, that is the real danger. and that's what they're going to impact on the

jaffar and up dollar format isis fighters. and they're now boarding a philippine naval ship mom, i mean, i've been doing the all my phone and 60 a month and i see linda look, i'm me, me me set up. i think about the team and the new
