all gathered for a, a big photo op at the trevi fountain earlier on sunday, throwing coins over their shoulder into that famous landmark, hoping that that brings some look to one particular area in which they have made of as few steps forward. and that is on a, a global minimum level of corporation tax. now this was an initiative that was put forward by the united states am if you listen to those who are giving the full backing to the u. s. president on to joe biden himself and from joe biden himself goes, we've heard it hailed as a real success. here at the g. 20 lead is representing 80 percent of the world's g . d. p. allies and competitors alike made clear that support for strong global minimum tax. this is more than just the tax deal. it's diplomacy reshaping our global economy and delivering for our people. while the plan is to put in place a minimum 15 percent rate of corporation tax across the globe. now the plan is
8:03 pm
by doing that that you would an increase the rate of cooperation tax in some countries that they would then be able to use that extra revenue that generated in order to fund social projects with the idea of pulling people out of poverty. this hasn't gone down well with everyone though skeptic say that a lonely, really benefit those nations that are already wealthy. the plan from the u. s. point of view is to raise their a corporation tax level, which already stands at around 21 percent up to about 28 percent critics including charity. he's an organization's looking to fight poverty on happy that this is the way forward. in fact, oxfam has called this a mockery of fairness. the world is experiencing the largest increase in poverty indicates and a message explosion, inequality, but this deal will deliver or nothing to hold either. instead, it is already being seen by some wealthy nations as an excuse to cut domestic corporate tax rates risk in a new race to the bottom. well, the g 20 seems to be ending with want to, if you,
8:04 pm
that we thought was put to bed before that even got underway, raising its head again, not the, the dispute between australia, france and the united states really over the orchestra deal. now that was the defense pockets the between australia, the united kingdom in the united states. what it ultimately did not defense pack though, was it from out of a $66000000000.00 us dollar deal to provide submarines to australia. we saw us president joe by meeting with front of the manual micron on friday, reconciliation the word all over the hot shit well and truly buried. hun shakes. no, i'm sorry. no, i'm sorry. no, thank you. no thank you. being offered from the to lead is really and it now turns out that what was said by joe biden, that he hadn't being made fully aware of exactly what was going on with the deal. might not be the case. we can now listen to what the us president had to say and what is come out from the australian prime minister. i was under the impression that fridge had been formed long before that the deal was not
8:05 pm
going through. i honestly know you had not. it was always a difficult decision for straight away. it was the right decision for the trailer, and we work closely with the united states and united kingdom, and we kept them up to date the u. s. administration with where we're at. and our barriers discussions with france. that's it for the g. 20 lead is summit 2021 next year. the event moves to in denise here with the leaders meeting in folly. peter, all of a r t row attempts by the u. s. and france to patch things up, took 2nd place to the sweeping endorsement of a minimum 15 percent tax on the world's largest corporations. an economist explained to us why wealthy nations like the u. s. will be the main beneficiaries. it will never be in the, in the, in the interest of government, the u. s. government and any other countries to get more taxes, but what they do with it. i mean, that's going to really influence who's been, who benefits new doesn't generally speaking countries while here,
8:06 pm
kind of companies rather based in about 5 years or can read much less affected by this than the, the global minimum taxable effect doesn't work. i personally wouldn't try to create a, a global block of minimum taxes. but one thing that could be done is also to lower the barriers due to bringing technology skills, information transfer to all the nations of the world. but actually the taxes are barrier to that taxes don't they don't, they don't hope that they are a barrier to spread of information the raises productivity and raises standards of living and all that sort of thing. said the whistleblower gillian assange remained in limbo this week after a 2 day extradition appeal hearing at london's high court. the west is challenging britons decision not to expedite him to america on health grounds. he's wanted on 17 charges of espionage and one of conspiracy to hack a government computer after exposing alleged to western war crimes. if convicted on all counts, he could face a prison sentence of 175 years, although it may be months before
8:07 pm
a final verdict in the case is reached. me. i. the judges just said they will take everything into consideration, but no ruling was handed out immediately. the entire day was devoted to hearing arguments before by the prosecution for the grounds of appeal. why they want to appeal to judge's decision not to extra by the songs. and there were 5 grounds of appealing to the 2 main topics, or of course san jose health. and the assurance is a diplomatic assurances given by the united states in terms of health. what the prosecution i've been trying to do is accuse a key medical, extra witness professor compliment of being disingenuous of misleading the court by concealing the identity of a thunder partner, stella morris, and the 2 children. we finally heard the yahoo news story, the investigative journalism that was done a few weeks ago where 30 us officials confirmed what we already knew from anonymous
8:08 pm
testimony that the c i was discussing, plans to potentially kidnap or poison julian as orange in london. and so this was brought up in the context of why couple men, why profess couple men should not disclose the identity of a song, just partner and their 2 children, because he feared for their safety. when it comes to the assurances that the united states is giving, they say that drilling function service sentence in australia, but australia has not even indicated if they will take you in his arms. this is a process that takes many years. the truth is the drew and his arms will most definitely be placed in it, leaf administrative segregation. and if not, he'll be sent to a special housing unit. so there's a wide array of tools that united states can use to break him once he's on us soil . and they most certainly will during both days of the hearing assumptions that supporters rallied outside the court, they want his immediate release and chanted. journalism is not a crime, others expressed growing concern over his health. in floyd, co founder and long time, a sound supporter, roger waters told r t that he believes the whole case is
8:09 pm
a huge miscarriage of justice. this is an absolute nonsense that this man has been locked up for a single day. whether it's in the ecuadorian embassy or in bell marsh. this is, this is one of the most valuable human beings that we the human race have. amongst us. he is deeply, deeply important to the potential for this race to survive on this planet in my view, that is why julian or sanchez in prison because he's interfering with the accounting plan to steal the plan. it sort of ripened to death and then destroy. it is a disgusting miscarriage of justice. look at guantanamo bay, asked shaka, alma, my friend, ask anybody who has been in the hands of the u. s. judiciary. and at any point, possibly since the 2nd world war with whom they did not agree. and you will find
8:10 pm
that there is no justice to be found in the united states. i am shall angry. and i'm so bad and i am so disgusted with the united kingdom. oh, i did a radio program last night, john ship, tim was on it and he was extremely eloquent. and i asked him how he, how he manages his grief and, and he was absolutely, he was so moving to listen to, he says willy, he puts it to one side as it goes through his life. and his life is entirely devoted to the freeing of his son, so he can go to his wife and children. and jones says that late at night he may retreat into his melancholy, and i felt my heart lurch in my chest. as i listened to this man saying,
8:11 pm
and i felt his melancholy, me like a, i'm a blow on my chest. we are not going anywhere at all. and our voice is going to get louder and louder and louder to julian some to say free problems. you got an anti joe biden song called let's go. brandon has quickly climbed to the top of america's i tunes hip hop chart. despite being pulled from social networks, youtube removed the track by rapper bryce and gray climbing it contained medical misinformation of a song takes aim at president biden's bungled afghan withdrawal and his handling of the crowd of iris pandemic. youtube said the platform doesn't allow claims about cov, that conflict with medical guidelines, a charge the wrapper denies. there's a 1000000 songs best out right now. and if you're trying to act like a song, i can't say. so i'm going to saw where you banded. that means you're bending my art . that means bending my you was going on, you can ban aren't,
8:12 pm
you could be anything. i don't curse on my music. i'm a positive music and i do have my views and my music. i don't even curse. and i'm the most sense, a wrapper in the world. how is that possible? i say what i believe in my song, everything i say to myself, i've been real life and this is what i believe it should be illegal or social media company to be able to change their guy lives every week. i've been delete things that came prior to that they actually are playing with our free speech. nobody is messing with them, they're missing the bus. the title of the head comes from a growing internet catch phrase. it went viral after and nbc reporter was interviewing nascar race driver, brendan brown, and said it sounded like the crowd behind him was chanting. let's go. brandon. apparently failing to realize what people were actually saying. i mean, the song comes as joe biden's approval rating has noticed, simply dipped according to
8:13 pm
a new survey. it's currently sitting below 45 percent down 11 points since his inauguration and january, meaning his popularity has declined faster than all of his predecessors. since the 2nd world war, bryson gray again says the president is finding the job tough going and trying to kill a mean a people. now a lot of it will say let's go brand new for me, that's perfect. somebody doesn't curse black or so my the same for president biting people call trumpet dictatorship. there's nothing more similar to what they say to step in what jo buyers currently billing and what a lot of companies are going to try to segregate vaccinated and vaccinated businesses like jim crow, $2.00, meanwhile, the world medical watch dog continues to sound the alarm about the ongoing coven pandemic, the w. h. o insists it can only be stopped. one way the pandemic will and when the world chooses to end it,

8:18 pm
entry into the u. s. capital building on january the 6th. but now suspect 16 has been scrubbed from the f b i website. now if you take a look at the way back machine from archive dot org, you can see that from january 8th, 2021, all the way until june, 30th suspect 16 was pretty clearly highlighted, but suddenly, on july, 1st, he wasn't on the website any longer. now if he'd been arrested, he would still be on the website just with arrested under his name, like others who have been apprehended. but he's not, he's just been scrubbed. this has prompted lawmakers to ask questions about whether or not there were f b. i provocative tours who may have helped events on january 6th to go the way they did far as we can find this individual has not been charged with anything. can you tell us without talking about particular incidents or particular videos? how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on january 6, whether they agitated to go into the capital and if any of them did
8:19 pm
a. so i'm not going to violate this norm of follow the rule of law. i'm not going to comment on an investigation that's ongoing. now the capital breach database has no entries or listings for re apps to some. that's a pretty big red flag. the ongoing mystery of re apps, he repeatedly appears in videos encouraging and inciting an invasion of the capital on january the 6th. yet for some reason has not yet been indicted or charged. even his people with far less involvement have been re apps as a free man. he has never been arrested or charged nearly 10 months after july. the 6th, the f b i in justice department, still refused to comment on with the eps has ever been served. a search warrant the f b i 's record when it comes to things like protests and provocations is not exactly squeaky claim. people can look up the history of cohen tell pro infiltration and other dirty deeds. if january 6th is such a pivotal date in

u. s. history as it's being presented, surely questions like those surrounding suspect? 16 demand answers. caleb martin, r t. new york. facebook is undergoing something of a metamorphosis with a major rebranding. changing its corporate name to meta. it's part of a drive to broaden the company's brand recognition, to include other holdings, such as instagram and what's up. the internet is joined in to help the rebranding, although perhaps not in the way facebook may have intended. a mountain of means rapidly erupted, and ridiculing the new name with facebook. sorry, mehta boss, mark zuckerberg, face front and center, and many a doctored pick. zuckerberg though is optimistic. the company's new direction is the way to go. facebook is one of the most used technology products in the history of the world. it's an iconic social media brand. over time, i hope we are seen as
8:21 pm
a meta verse company. and i want to anchor our work and our identity on what we're building towards. facebook changed his name to meta is so exciting. i've already forgotten that we just learned, they knew women were being sex topics on the platform and did nothing. facebook is now meta, our new logo is a rubber band because our morals are elastic. oh, and we stretch the truth. it doesn't matter what you call it. there are still 7 are data. now the new name was unveiled alongside plans to build a so called meta verse, an online virtual world, where people can play video games, work and communicate. you know, it's meant pushed up the newly minted meadows stock price by $1.00 and a half percent. and pondering how this new cyberspace universe might be implemented here is not one, but 2 poly workers. within a matter of years in facebook gets its way. a lot of us could be spending much of

8:23 pm
virtual world into another. so instead of flying from paris to new york, for example, you digitally teleport yourself from facebook match of us to google's or apple's one. i'm throwing you boomers quaking in your boots at the thought of this mess of us. the future is already here, back in 2020 rock and travis scott played a virtual concept within the fortnight world, which attracted over 12000000 viewers, which was a record at the time. not sure e brand to have cottoned on to the fact that there's bags of money to be made in the mess of us. he's already unveiled a virtual collection on the roadblock platform. while valencia olga is creating a bunch of clothes or skins as they're known for court nights, there's even companies, thing, virtual real estate in the matter of us. if you're starting to understand how this

8:27 pm
many you politicians may find it tempting to lift the burden of responsibility from themselves and perhaps lay the blame on someone else and you guessed it. in this case it is on russia. 6 but there are many who say that the facts do not add up in the east blame game with moscow. like this is a high gas prices are linked to the miscalculations of the european union. as far as we know, russia has supplied about 15 percent more gas than its existing contracts cover. also, as for the gas that was supposed to come from the us, out of the 28000000000 europe received only 7 because the rest went asia. so what can we take away from verona? well, to some the panelists up, the world has changed and we need to be prepared for that change, which could significantly impact government's business. and you and i,
8:28 pm
it's now a multi polar world. and if the e is to find a way to have a real voice, it needs to look for alliances to the east. charlotte, even sky r t, verona. that doesn't for me, this, i'll be back in about 32 minutes with another full and fresh look snoozer with our international. ah. he died. i cried. and i just had a slot the whole time i was there. no one really thought anything different. knew this all thought, i just don't feel good on the way for the surgery, his lungs failed. 30 seconds for the killed him.
