7:00 am
so our own didn't our own technological devonne, things always further on than our ability to feed protests. sweep europe as governments clump done yet again in response to rising coven cases, germany is expected shortly to issue tough, new rules for its own vaccinated citizens. also this our coming up the season animals, we are not on and off and i saw happened to the board. i can't stay very hard when i saw poland uses to your gas against women and children. i thought other european countries would be no different. after days of tensions, the poland belarus border begins to clear after demoralized migrants choose warm shelter instead of facing tear gas and water cannon. iraq is now sending plains for those who want to returned home. plus i met
7:01 am
with the device of trial of teenage shooter co written how i seized clashes outside a u. s. court. that's the judge. brown's media coverage on the proceedings, grossly irresponsible, ah, fly from international new center in moscow. this is our t good to help you with this. my name's you know, neil. europe's being battered by yet another corona virus wave with france registering more than 20000 daily cases for the 1st time since august and hungry. the infection rate is 5 times higher than at the start of this month. a numbers are old, so spiking in austria, in response, governments are ratcheting up the pressure on people to get their cobit schultz.
7:02 am
several you nations are introducing partial locked dons for the unvaccinated or limiting their access to key services in the czech republic. the measures how smart public fury with thousands protesting on prague central square by he is also tightening the screws on the, on job, boring them from large events and requiring testing and with places. and as we can see here in 1000 gangedine very well in brought his lava and germany daily infections have had a record high berlin is expected to impose at some stage at to day new restrictions taken us through want the ellen taylor europe correspondent, peter oliver. it looks like we are going to see new measures, no change in germany when it comes to coded restrictions that would allow the 60 states and the individual government didn't know state to strengthen, to tighten those restriction. should they feel that they are necessary? what that spare minimum, national bare minimum could look like is being called the 2 g method. now to g
7:03 am
was the way in which only the vaccinated those that can prove that they've recovered from covered 19 would have access to certain public spaces to g plus means you wouldn't get into things like restaurants, bars, cafes, theaters, or cinemas without both having your vaccine certificate or your proof that you've recovered and a recent negative test. now, this house proved pretty popular with the population, suggesting 60 percent of those would back such a move. among them seems to be the outgoing chancellor angle and merkle who is highlighted, the real risk that germany is facing from this 4th wave of covert lighting. to give me longer and we can send them expectation in germany is dramatic. i can't say any other way on. the 4th wave is hidden our country with full force on urgently need
7:04 am
to make progress on vaccinations. and so i would also like to take this opportunity to promote vaccines. it's also not too late at all to decide to get vaccinated for the 1st time. the action certainly needed, but it's not just because of the high coven numbers that something needs to be done . the current government has seem to be inadequate when it comes to respond particularly to this 4th wave of coven. 19 around 60 percent of those polled by news magazine dash beagle said turn. government hadn't been cursing. it hadn't been doing enough. but what we are facing is a real problem when it comes to those in need of serious health is germany. there is a shortage of intensive care beds in some regions leaning that. those that are a who up read reading sick with cove at 19 are going to struggle to find the care that they need. and what we are seeing is the interim health minister yen spawn, saying that he wants to see boost the vaccine jobs given out to all of those over
7:05 am
the age of a scene. be keeping an eye on what comes out of the bond, the stag all day on thursday. let's get reaction to what we're seeing this winter season with lawrence young lawrence's professor of molecular oncology at warrick medical school in the u. k. you're very welcome to the program. lawrence, can i put some of the points to you? that's when we gotten vox pops in the cities and countries. those oppose this is, this is the questions they asked. they said that you, nations, that, you know, they're tightening restrictions on they unvaccinated, but why do they believe it's going to stop the search in cases when being vaccinated doesn't necessarily stop you catching code or spreading it. i think it's because, as with all infections, it's a combination of human behavior and the amount of immunity in the population because of course, whilst him vaccination doesn't completely stop you spreading the virus, it does stop. you getting sick and it does take pressure. all the health care
7:06 am
system, what we're seeing here essentially with the searches across europe is a combination of insufficient vaccine uptake. and the premise, sure easy restriction measures are, this is a, was a combination human behavior. and the need to get high levels of immunity in the population to prevent hospitalization. but in terms of people not taking enough shots, as you know, the case of gibraltar has brought up there. it's a pretty interesting case study. is it not? it's the most vaccinated place on earth. every eligible citizen has had their to shop. but this week, christmas was essentially canceled with authority stating an exponential rise in cases. either the vaccine work or they don't. there's no question. absolutely no question whatsoever. but the vaccines work in reducing the spread of infection. they're not perfect in doing that, but they do work in damping down sprayed. most important of all is they protect people from getting sick. and so they,
7:07 am
they do was bought by themselves. they all i'm testing but not perfect, and that's what we're seeing, that's what we're experiencing. because a lot of this is about the fact we have a very, very infectious virus that spreads from person to person very easily. that we're in a situation where a lot of europe is starting to experience cold weather, driving people inside into pull the ventilated spaces where the virus spread. so simple measures on top of explanation of very effective can you think about one of those measures? perhaps, lawrence, it's an issue that we don't have as much clarity about who's catching co, but not. hi, bobby, and they're being effected like, who's dying from it? why are we told that perhaps it's, it is the old, the beast likely where to start and that they should be looked after 1st and foremost, and maybe targeted more than those are healthy children who aren't getting it and passing it on and aren't helping their lives affected as much as that. why do you
7:08 am
think that's not being spoken about as much? all i, i don't know. i think it's good. it's an interesting question in the sense that if we trying to obviously prevent the spread of infection, i'm prevent illness. it's been very controversial in terms of the of vaccinate the youngsters, but youngsters do get sick. and more importantly, youngsters have had their education disruptive which has affected their well being a mental health and therefore protecting them not only for themselves the way it is extremely low, isn't it? it is, but they do act as a source, a spread to the older population. we have 2 effects. if you look at the people being hospitalized, particularly in the u. k. clearly a lot of these people are vaccinated. and then there's a group of people who are elderly, more vulnerable, who are suffering the consequences of a way, mingled decaying immunity. and that's why boost the jobs are so important. we're seeing the amazing impact of boosting immunity with boost jobs in countries like israel, where they see the significant reduction in infections spread of infection and the
7:09 am
hospitalisation. so think a little bit about getting the message out the message, the if you are more vulnerable, if you are one of those categories, you really do need to get fully vaccinated. and actually, you also need to stop the spread the virus in the community by products and eating as many people as possible. can i just briefly ask one more thing in terms of what we're seeing know in europe? is it worth essentially a 2 tier society emerging? i think it's very difficult. i think once you've got, once you stop restrictions, trying to encourage people to get vaccinated by bringing in further restrictions, i think is a very, very risky strategy, compelling people to get jobs is going to be difficult. although we are already seeing the effect in austria where people are coming forward to get vaccinated, i think you gotta be careful not alienating the public. and part of what we're experience, i think, is a general lack of trusts, not so much in the vaccine, but in the way that governments are managing the pandemic. i think it's difficult to get trust back unless you're very clear when you're messaging to your population
7:10 am
. yes and very interesting points, thanks as always for coming on the program and sharing them. lawrence young, professor of molecular oncology at work, medical school grueling, stunned off on the polish border, appears to be subsiding with migrants now retreating from the heavily fortified border fence and seeking shelter from the bela russian side. authorities had provided temporary accommodation in a warehouse and 100, i'd much needed supplies. after spending several freezing nights in the open, one of the arrivals had a message of gratitude from its who are growing. number of refugees have abandoned their dream of a new life. and the new they backed out in the face of harsh cried controlled tactics from polish. border guards who've been using water cannon and tear gas. now, only a few dozen people now remain out in the cold. after most of the migrants rise in a converted warehouse. a co vaccination point has just been set up up. the camp to
7:11 am
our senior correspond america, guys to have sent us this report from the area. the nice has been somewhat caught in the book. there were sporadic attempt spot by small groups to cross into into poland, mostly men who were much city a that the weather is it isn't doing that would be migrant. any, any favors it is cold. here is windy, the sort of wind that blows all the heat out of your body. many people more than a 1000 to now in this, in this handle, this former logistic center, the bell russian authorities have made available for my goods. it's, it's a roof over their heads. it's somewhere warm with power, with a place to charge their mobile phones and keep in touch with their relatives. this food also with being delivered, but many others are still out there in the woods. there are cabs across the border,
7:12 am
trying to find a way through to pull into the vent julie into germany, which is the ultimate destination for many of them. but as i say, there was no concentrated effort to get across over the course of the night. and the flight, the spirit has got out of many of the migrants here, many of them, of course, women, children who didn't expect the sort of ferocious response that they saw from poland liberally to meet you. and i don't have any more hope for the european union. we were sleeping in the forest for 10 days and they were children with us. it's very dangerous, and none of the you countries are ready to speak about the problem and nobody accepts us. asha and holland is using take us against women and children, and the you keep silence about this. i only poland is telling the media that we are dangerous if they see as, as animals are. but we are not on emotion. maliah, i have failed to reach germany, and i want to go home them or that we've tried to kiss europe 3 times and i didn't succeed. i'm upset when i saw happen to the border. i can't stay at
7:13 am
a very hard hit on my leg, my neck, the vast sad. i am very tired. i don't want to try again. my family in iraq, her sang, please come back when i saw poland hughes tear gas against women and children. oh, i thought other european countries would be no different for reference and with taking just troop soldiers here into account that the poland has moved stationed at the, at the border at various crossings, 50000 troops. and this is discounted all the of the border patrol of emergency services. the police that have been station at the board or about 2000 migrants here, 15000 polish troops to watch over the very migrant boy, girl child, woman. a man, there are, there are 7 polish soldiers, a deeds in the polish response has been tremendous. they're trying to keep anyone
7:14 am
from crossing into poland. there are, there are people that have been able to cross into polar that have even reach germany. but those are a few and far between people here realized that their chances are the chances are diminishing. this isn't what they expected from europe. this isn't what they relatives told them would happen. who people who had a much easier time of getting into germany getting into western europe, which is again the ultimate destination for many migrants. and of course, with the crops, the crescendo came out when polish security forces at the border began firing to chatter. the canons laces, sorry, just streams of water jets of water laced, but some sort of variant of, of tear gas for which many migrants as well as even bell russian security forces at the chic medical attention for. ah, i
7:15 am
with this diplomatic spat conflict between belarus and various countries of the european union also continues with both for changing bobs, blaming each other for this, this crisis europe playing, it is entirely manufactured. beller, are saying that these people came here and they want to cross over into europe, partly because of their fling conditions that european nations helped establishing in their countries. b as a rock b it syria b of ghana started. but these telling the people would, at this point, many people here would prefer to return to of canister to syria, to iraq, rather brave trying to cross into poland. again,
7:16 am
has been communication between the pell russian authorities and various officials in europe. they're trying to come to a common resolution of this latest crisis, the slated latest migrant crisis. and there have been hopeful times, but for now people remain at here on the border. iraq is also sending today repatriation fly to return some of its citizens to vibe voice their intent to return home to endless pursuit of trying to cross into poland, germany, and who would prefer to return home. he remains a difficult affair because they will have to register everyone and try to figure out how many people it is that, that want to return. but ultimately, for many migrants here, a step in the right direction. well, not lot appointment was making of people wanting to return home on a rocky diplomat. say's over for hundreds have officially registered to fly. home will be the 1st group of people returning voluntarily since the border crisis began
7:17 am
. indeed, with roots from belarus into poland, largely sealed off migrants are trying their luck further north i from the communion frontier. the bel russian border service has released this on verified video, allegedly showing in the few indian police with dogs forcing migrants to turn back on tuesday night. lithuania, which is in the e. u, has offered a different version of events. it saying, bella, russian guards pushed 13 migrants over to the la few indian side, and prevented them from returning to bella. rou, softer they were denied entry will, before bella rou, set off, not make shift. border shelter from migrants. many of them spent at weeks not in the freezing cold, with little or no food, a situation that aid agencies call the humanitarian disaster. artie has been following those harling developments from day one. the most significant reports can all be found in one place. the r t show channel on youtube. well,
7:18 am
it's just, it's almost sunset at the camp and i close rico berg wood from camp fires. my eyes are sore because of the smoke and i just said, i know i feel dizzy, but this is nothing compared to what these people have been through. spend last 3 days. but these migrants for these refugees, and i guess we've set it all blood on death. starting with desperate mothers. oscar so far, this is the largest migrant crisis and europe's eastern frontier. this is our t fists fly outside the courtroom and the ongoing trial of teenage shooter, kyle rittenhouse, and the case that's called mainstream media personalities. they're crying racism despite all of the victims being white,
7:19 am
we got out story short ah ah ah mm. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally
7:20 am
and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk with 20 minutes into the program. welcome back. despite the british government making repeated claims, not 8 would get a grip on illegal immigration this year. how seen record numbers of migrants arriving on u. k. soil, within $23.00 and have scrambled ashore after making the perilous english channel crossing. the authorities have now admitted only 5 of them have been sent back to the continent. mapping some difficulties around secure returns,
7:21 am
not least as a consequence of cutting fit. that is an important context. and i feel free to senator dodd, this time, last year that return agreements were on number one priority. it's from you and the french national interest to agree such returns interest that gives me significant cause for optimism. instead, the opposite has happened. is that correct? yeah, mission remains to secure successful returns, arrangements with our european friends and neighbors and potentially with the european union. but this also doesn't just relate to the you well, you had just that britain has got to do better. that is the admission for all ministers have in the united kingdom. it's simply no good, really a blaming these circle difficulties, or even the cove at 90 and pandemic. the cause, the numbers are really escalating out of control. it comes as the numbers of people trying to reach the united kingdom via the english channel has now tripled in a year from 8 and a half 1000 to more than 23000 in the last week alone on 3 different occasions.
7:22 am
over a 1000 people reach the united kingdom via this route. now ministers are following indeed the home secretary pre details lead of using a slogans and rhetoric like making the channel absolutely on viable, but it seems to be just the slogan is now 3 years ago. pretty battelle 1st used that phrase, and the situation year on year is only a getting was well as per usual, as a tit for tat between the united kingdom and the french old forties. not only does each sigh as the others problem, but the united kingdom says the french authorities are simply not keeping to their word of this joint patrol mission. while the french authorities say that the u. k. was in no position at to point the finger of blame will precipitate met with her french counterparts and the stalemate position continues. buquet home secretary and french interior minister agreed to accelerate the delivery of the commitments made in the joint clement of july 2021. to live on the joined determination to prevent
7:23 am
100 percent of cross science and make this deadly route on viable. for the record, the 100 percent figure was not agreed between the home secretary and french, interior minister gerald german and, and should not be presented as an agreed commitment. it is not that it is not part of the joint statement or thought the diplomatic roots haven't really worked either . the united kingdom is trying to replace the dublin agreement with other resettlement schemes. however, france, belgium gemini, and sweden have all rejected these attempts, but one is certainly needed, as i say, these numbers are now as soaring out of control. and we have to look at the context of all of this. even ministers in that meeting admitted the very fact that when the food of cowboy happened, that's when we saw the influx of asylum seekers particularly from afghanistan on the near by region with these people ending up here in the channel. because of course, i was in just the crisis of people coming to the united kingdom by this route. but
7:24 am
what happens once that here as well, we know it can take up to years for asylum seekers at to be processed. and now the u. k. is even considering offshore a processing of these applications, particularly in albania, that's a i did that's been floating around for some time now, however, i'll pena simply rejecting these claims. so it seems rhetoric and these don't you deals there simply isn't an answer to dealing with this crisis. nothing really seems to be working on campaign. as have long said, the united kingdom needs safe and legal passages of full asylum seekers to reach the united kingdom because of course make no mistake. the english channel is one of the wells busiest shipping lines. when people say it is life threatening, it's absolutely no. a exaggeration, of course, in recent weeks we've seen at least 2 people losing their life when trying to cross this powerless journey with many more fit to be lost at sea as well. so the time really is now to get a grip of this situation. tempers are flaring in the
7:25 am
trial of teenage shooter, kyle rittenhouse, with a mouse brawl outside the courtroom in wisconsin. on wednesday, it's exposed a chasm, and us politics and media with issues of at police sing racism again at the forefront of a culture bottle. taken us through it from outside the court. all that, to ortiz john heavy oh yeah. i know you're both with wow. it's definitely heated up in terms of the overall vibe in the overall atmosphere. you know, there was actually just about maybe 10 minutes ago. an altercation on the steps between essentially opposing protesters to other protesters gone into a fight. it turned into
7:26 am
a fist fight. one of the demonstrators or one of the people that was involved in the altercation then ran across the street. i'm going to get out of the way just so you can kind of see the scene a little bit directly in front is media then behind that, that's the courthouse. the courthouse steps. anyway, this, the scrum was up there. one of the guys ran ran across the street, and a van pulled up, loaded with police, who then jumped out, tackled via the person involved in the altercation and presumably arrested him. got them in a van, got that vehicle out of here and then pushed the remaining protesters back up before really that situation escalated and became more violent from there because definitely other protesters were starting to get into a pushing match. this is really the most volatile and the most tense that we've seen so far now that we've been here a little bit earlier today. the jury asked another question to the judge about seeing some of the video evidence the jury wanted to review some of the video evidence again. and also the defense team filed another motion for a mistrial,
7:27 am
contending and it has to do with drone video containing that they did not receive the same resolution and quality a video that the prosecution received. so they had push, you know, this has happened even during the, the overall trial that the defense was pushing for miss trial. you know, adding to the overall drama of the situation. and then of course, during the testimony car written houses, emoji testimony, and then a back and forth between thomas painter, the chief prosecutor in the case. and the judge brew shredder. and i hate to say it's become really kind of a circus carnival atmosphere earlier today. people showing up in costumes, people, you know, just odd the coops and the crazy movie lose showing up here. you know, the question that becomes what happens here in the city when a verdict is handed down. if that doesn't did happen, the governor of wisconsin has activated are really on sale by 500 national guard troops to be at the ready to help local law enforcement if things get out of control once again, the hearing now. definitely getting more vocal. definitely getting more volatile
7:28 am
and fewer of just to recap and align why that court cases happening last year, a kind of written her, she was 17, the time fatally shot to people during a black lives matter rally and can show which had erupt into a riot. several media commentators have presented race now central to the trial, even though the men shot by the rittenhouse during the rest were white. ah, if you want to know why critical race there exists, they look no further than the trial of however, it comes with several adults welcomed him and loudly serenaded the 18 year old with a rendition of proud of your boy. they flashed the okay sign, which has been co opted as a sign of white power. kyle rittenhouse flashed hate symbols
7:29 am
with meanwhile, co written the ice. his mother else accused president biden of defaming her soul, no doubt, in response to a tweet from last year containing his image in which they then presidential nominate condemned white supremacists. the issue was raised that a recent white house briefing. why did president find suggest the cow rittenhouse on trial in kenosha is a white supremacist. so peter, at what i am not going to speak to right now is anything about an ongoing trial we're waiting verdicts. beyond that, i'm not going to speak to any individuals or this case. the president has spoken to it already. and his mom bow rittenhouse, his mom came out saying that the president veined her son mcclain's. she claims that when the president suggested herself wife the premises, he was doing back to when both was that what happened?
7:30 am
i just have nothing more to speak to an ongoing case where the closing arguments were just make go ahead. well, we discussed the situation with the law professor and author allen there sivitz, he thinks jo biden's interference in the cases he puts it has influenced the median operative. or you can't just call somebody white supremacists without any evidence . that is both a matter of opinion, but it's also based on facts and if there's nothing in his background to support that he's a white supremacist. that would be defamation. so i think god, joe biden, the candidate made a serious mistake by intruding into the case and letting his opinion be heard whether a year later, it still has an influence. it's probably an indirect influence on establishing the media narrative, if the sure on the other foot, if this were a black lives matter protester who had shot electrically in self defense, then the hard last and the re.
