5:02 pm
see dennis ations here is they come into the final stages lighting the flesh behind us. these demonstrations coming out to say, go to the austrian government policies. when it comes to coven 19 with glimpses coming through the gate. as we head towards the historic historic policy here in the center, they all seem capital quite your money themes and they come through that with the as they come through the ask to try and get away from the crowd of it as they come with that flu going for the most part, this demonstration was incredibly peaceful. however, there was some flash points between demonstrate as in place, things were thrown from the demonstrators towards law enforcement, who responded by dragging people out and taking them away into custody. there was also some incidences where i saw some teenagers starting bottles towards the place in order to try and get them to give them
5:03 pm
a chase. the reason that all of this has started is because all the actions that the austrian government is taken to try and calm down the coven, 19 problem, that the country has. that was starting last monday. what was called a lockdown of the on vaccinated of 3000000 people fell into that particular group. those that haven't either got a vaccination and can prove it, or they can prove that they've recovered from coven 19. that then escalated further on friday of this week. when we, well, when alexander schellenberg, the austrian chancellor, announced that from the homing monday, a national lockdown will be going on. he also said that from the 1st of february, that will be well, a mandatory vaccination policy in place to cost austria all sure, becoming the 1st country in europe to do so. that really upset a lot of people. lot of those that we spoke to a lot of people that come out here just behind me flaring those horns. very upset
5:04 pm
that all should become the 1st european since it is put in place. this type of mandatory vaccine policy. i sing, it's not the question from the government. i sing, it's a question for the people. if i want it, i can hear for it. but what's with the 1000000 people's? they don't like this. what's with this? we have a problem with the austrian government. ah, we, we have freight to lose our table critique. i am not happy with this sir. solution because sir, it's against done the wish of offer people and the, and human rights are being done on, on, on the ground already or beneath, under the ground. now, alexander schellenberg, they all say, and johnson says, the reason he did that was because his hand was forced because to many people in his country as he sees it
5:05 pm
a fall and fall of what he calls anti vax propaganda. and that's one of the reasons he said that a vaccine uptake in austria was so low. these people low say they just don't want the government to have so much say in what happens to them, why they take vaccines. the real statistics, though are not austria is in the grip of a real biting situation. when it comes to this fault, wave of coven 90, particularly in the west of the country, hospitals are at creaking point. when it comes to taking severely ill people in intensive care units, they are just don't have the capacity to be able to cope. and aussie as vaccine rate is below the average when it comes to the rest of the european union. however, the people here say that they just don't agree with the policies and the way that alex under shalon bows, government is handled. they say you're in austria. can all this because the infection rate booming in austria, but at number 2, it's the netherlands, where the reaction to restrictions has been much more fierce. a 2nd night of
5:06 pm
protests underway in that country. what you say now is the hague a few minutes ago. what we saw at that junction, there was a fire, which firefighters and riot police put out only in the past, few minutes, reopened that junction to traffic, but certainly high police presence in the hague right now. slaves have been set off in the dutch capital too, in the past hour or so has right police mobilize to try and contain the violence. they're just over a week and see if they're locked down. light that they have in the netherlands are full locked down. but 3 weeks of restrictions on the side, the netherlands becoming the 1st country to impose such restrictions. closely followed by austria, of course think much mercy on friday, i wear the city of rotterdam in the netherlands, so rioting over the partial lockdown. and also the proposed tightening of coven pass criteria. angry crowd, set police vehicles ablaze, and left a trail of destruction on the streets. it seems that described by the cities mer as
5:07 pm
an orgy of violence. a tooth. well, this is a stuck in a situation of the aftermath of the riots and rotterdam on friday road, stayed with blood and pavements of shattered glass and destroyed property on top of the lockdown underway. now in the netherlands of further plant restrictions have the nation divided with a major poll, showing the belly half the population would be okay with excluding the unvaccinated from getting coby passes. earlier on r t, german and p andre hunker says that the key to fighting the pandemic is a balance of trust between the people and the authorities. we have to deal with the
5:08 pm
whole complexity and in the center should be type things, a winner rebel and, and the elderly. we should more invest in the health system, but it's not a you should not locked down on the whole society. the trust needs some kind of trust of people to the situation. so the vaccines are on transparency and clear message communication about what i see now in several countries relation and this kind of what we saw and never learned yesterday for it's alarming . i think it's an important element to estimate the struggle against it, but i don't think this forced her actions like now in austria, hadn't discussed it at a low european countries. i'm not in favor office or chaotic. see to protest also in the french capital on saturday. as the yellow, vast movie markets, 3rd anniversary, demonstrators,
5:09 pm
they're burned city property and held objects and police ah ah ah said menu for special bodies in for the demonstration in paris, dedicated to the sad adversary of the yellow vest movement and meet as he turned to clashes the police were pelted with various objects and they responded straight away with tear gas. then during the day clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement, a cat, quite regularly, all the forces were represented by police officers who seemed unable to cope with
5:10 pm
the situation from the very beginning and were very nervous. probably this davis of law enforcement officers can be explained by the large number of demonstrators, in fact, several 1000 yellow best who arrived here from all of our friends took part day and continued to take part in many dust. the demonstration is taking place today in the atmosphere of extreme tension. some of the city's equipment was damaged and unfortunately garbage was banned in many places in 3 years after the launch of the movement demonstrated one day to pay tribute to the numerous victims injured in previous reading. is also wes, saying a few words about the demands of the demonstrators, the are the same as in november 2018. when the movement was born. demonstrators demand lower fuel prices and the citizens initiative referendum. justice of the social and taxes, as well as an environmental issue. in addition, the current crisis cannot be ignored. to rally participants are protested against mandatory vaccination in the introduction of covet passage and more. and i'm just
5:11 pm
don't plus do it. but as if the french police didn't have enough on that. and so the lap right now, a couple of 100 officers might find themselves dispatched to the caribbean to handle vaccination protests there. there have been weeks of ferocious unrest in the french overseas territory of waterloo, over the compulsory inoculation of health workers. there's now a nightly curfew because of rioting and losing. for the french government has pledged to send 200 police to help local forces. but a guadalupe officer and police union leader we spoke to told us the reinforcements will make a difference to our personnel has been on duty for the last couple weeks amid the demonstrations. no, even though these protests are largely peaceful, are situation still needs to be controlled. today's situation has spiraled out of control. we have to learn, gain control. that's why we're asking our interior ministry for the reinforcement of police units. as of now, the situation is tense and even $200.00 more offices will not be an hour. it's drop in the ocean, we need a substantial ramp of our unit. that's what we've been asking for for a long time,
5:12 pm
and your group move or the weekend news for you. now with the british justice secretary has confirmed that the government is considering deporting migrants to facilities abroad while their paperwork's being processed. but he declined to specify where those locations will be. albania has already been approached as a potential destination, but it's refused. shoddy edwards dashed in x, looks at the plans and the control. the state stood. the u. k is revising pans the sand asylum seekers abroad for processing and remote australian style offshore centers. in the past 12 months, almost every corner of the globe has been considered from europe to the essential islands and africa, basically anywhere but here. this is something that we are probing to just the idea . we will do everything we can to resolve the problem. we make no apology for at least trying to look at that. which in the eyes of the united nations, has long been a sign of a colonial mindset to see the united kingdom looking at the same ideas as australia as
5:13 pm
a matter of deep concern to the united nations high commissioner for refugees. because we see it as almost a neo colonial approach. he pass it off to african countries and you wash your hands with it. you might pay a lot of money. but nonetheless, the shift, the burden and that way, without the safeguards is a problem. campaigners also say the news may rip up asylum rights, moving asylum seekers to countries that might not have the same human rights protections would basically unburden the british government for the u. k. says it's time to change cause following years of what it claims to be a broken system. the british public have had enough of seen people die in the channel while ruthless criminal gangs profit from their misery. our new plan for immigration provides the only long term solution to fix the broken system. and it's right, we keep all options on the table. it comes as the united kingdom, her see nearly $24000.00 asylum seekers make the perilous journey in small boats
5:14 pm
across the english channel just this year alone. and only 5 of those refugees have been sent back to europe. this year. the u. k. government hopes its plans will also act as a deterrent but to some it's more of a case of out of sight, out of mind she in breach of international law and arguably in breach of the 1951 convention on the status of refugees. and i'm not sure if this is how the new global. busy britain wants to be remembered as a country that goes out into the world, slouching, international roar, entreaties we sign as well as showing. busy contempt to human rights and just think that from a practical financial point you think of the cost of actually transporting thousands of asylum. c is from this country to an african country, then having to pay the african country full the detention facilities. but who are there a paying for the gods, paying for the processing? everything like it's going to cost the country up some fortune. that money could be
5:15 pm
far better spent in speeding up the asylum process in this country and determining people's refugee claims at an earlier stage. well, across the atlantic, president biden host, it talks with the leaders of mexico and canada, them at a massive migrant search of the united states southern border. it's the 1st trilateral summit between the leaders in 5 years, but it failed to produce any major breakthroughs. on the talks came as a new caravan of another 3000 migrants, mostly from haiti, and central america, set off from southern mexico towards the u. s. border hoping to join up with the 3000 who set off a few weeks ago. a mexican authorities also say they found more than $400.00 people secretly traveling in to lori trailers. thought to be heading to the us. or this putting more pressure on the white house, of course, and its handling of the crisis of caleb moore's reports. next is team, say they're on top of the immigration issue, working with other countries to find a solution that's not enough for sheriffs in 17 states calling to fire the homeland
5:16 pm
security. secretary of the winds, things disaster over the past several months and listening to the continued rhetoric and intellectual dishonesty from 6 to my yoke us the western states, sheriff association and its membership must in frantically states opposition of having no confidence in the ability of the sick to my august and his leadership within the department of homeland security to effect any positive outcome on this matter. they say that the real issue is that the united states can't control its borders and that officials are out of touch with the real crisis on the ground. now, man security chief, even admits he doesn't have key data on migrant crossings. how about this? how many deaths, how many illegal aliens have died crossing illegally into the united states. under jo biden's administration, i don't have that data migrant crossings continue to happen with n g o is providing aid to those crossing the border, making the process white easier. the actual numbers are not known,
5:17 pm
but many speculate. the situation is quite serious. i managed to get in the gates. i demanded entry once and was refused. i talked to guard into letting me in, on another occasion. and when i was in there, i saw buses pulling up, probably about $100.00 migrants over an hour got off of these bosses many say it looks like the biden administration is shirking responsibility. refusing to admit it's, let the crisis get out of control. how many children have been in the biden cages and calendar year 2021, a sen? i respectfully disagree with your use of the term cages. by the way, here's a photograph of the biden cages that as a center that is precisely why articulated children's sleeping on floors crashed in upon each other. when i took this photograph, the cove at a rate rate of cobit positivity was over 10 percent. has joe biden been down to see this facility of yes or no vitamin the democrats say they are addressing the crisis,
5:18 pm
but many of their critics say their actions are both insufficient and far too late . i don't know what data hazel is lacking if he's lacking data, he how to get out a plane and vice president harris ought to get on a plane and they ought to go to the border. and the, you know, made a lot more than go into the border and saying, what's happening with the thousands of people are there. i mean, you can get, you can get the data with, with your own eyes. the end of the day is president biden and vice president kamala harris, who make the policy. and they're responsible. one of the major jobs of the president is to protect the integrity of the border of the united states. and he has not done that. he has not shown a water resolve so far here without seeing the weekend on the way we're gonna keep watch on what's happening in the hague of colds. plus one of the f. b i is most wanted charged with attacking police and january's capital riot turns up in banner
5:19 pm
roofs seeking asylum. we hear from him among our stories after this. oh well, we've made our pilgrimage. do vick going, holy land el salvador. we're in el dante, better known as bitcoin, big country is really ready to go fall by point hyper, but point is asian joining other countries around the world. the president has made big point legal center. people are using big point to buy a coffee in san salvador, and it's making a huge impact on the population. ah, we're seeing high levels, one certainty creeping in economic life. and i think we're all aware of the
5:20 pm
disruption of global supply chain spike in the cost of energy. we're seeing a way appearance of inflation. and i think all of these constitute of the economy, scroll down the line risks, which could mean to is still ahead of us despite the moderation of the severity with new york. it's really what america is about ah, when our mayor took operation, he was elected because of his campaign on our city, being a tale of 2 cities. the house and i have not those who have not are usually the ones who weren't being buried on holiday. the city has always wanted to forget
5:21 pm
about how loud so you want it to forget about the people who are buried there. wanted to forget about the fact that there is a potter's field that there was a place where difficult stories are hidden. the fact that we're using inmates to maintain this active burial site, where 1000000 souls are buried, where so much of new york city history is buried, is documents of 0 quality that exist in the city for centuries. ah, ah, hello again. now, when the pandemic emerged in africa, health officials feared cobit could be devastating. but w h o data shows that compared with other continents that have been relatively low infection rates and few have died of the disease. in fact, the u. s. health agency says africa's death rate is just 3 percent of the global
5:22 pm
total rise in europe is 29 percent. africa may be listed as one of the world's least affected areas, but there's another major problem there. and that's a shortage of vaccines and syringes. just 6 percent of africans have been vaccinated against cove it. the looming threat of vaccine commodities crisis hangs over the continent. early next year covered 19 vaccines will start pouring into africa. but a scarcity of syringe is good paralyzed progress. drastic measures must be taken to boost syringe production fast. countless african lives depend on it. on top of that african affairs analyst, lawrence freeman told as he suspects the continent, cobra death numbers are much higher than our reported one problem we have now. i seen data from africa is there is a very poor accounting system of people who have the virus and of people who may have died from a coven 19. they're not being registered as having
5:23 pm
a virus. and many of the desk in the royer is either not recorded at all, or if they are reported are not necessarily poor. it is cold, related death. you talking about probably 1500000000 people. if that's 2 shots, as it is with pfizer, i'm returning them to about 3000000000 doses. and there's no plans to do that. that would really be a disaster. because the longer the virus spreads any portion part of the world, the likelier chance it has the new t an american wanted by the f b i for participating in the capitol hill. riot is now seeking asylum in belarus. avenue. human faces charges of trespassing and assaulting a law enforcement officer during the january 6th protest. however, while he doesn't, and i being there that day, he does claim that the accusations against them are unfounded. he's been telling us how he sold the events unfold. when i came to the capital,
5:24 pm
there was one barrier on the steps of the capital. so it, it appeared to be that the police had made no preparations for, for protest, even though they knew for for weeks or maybe even a month there had been calls for this protest out the capital. i think there was even a permit. and yet there seemed to be no preparations. the police were very aggressive and where i was not everywhere. i've seen video afterwards that was very controlled and quickly escalated. as the people started to enter the capital of 2 young men came running out with blood on them saying they just shot a girl in the face. and that did not deter
5:25 pm
the line of people that i saw going in. they continued walking slowly forward. good lord, i regret things. i regret, number one, being route. well, number one, i promise somebody that i would stand back in the crowd and i didn't hold that promise. that's the 1st thing that i regret. i regret being rude to the police. they released a wanted of a list of a very long list of, of pictures of people that were wanted. and it was brought to my attention that i might be on that list. and i looked, and it appeared to be me and, and it said a sofa federal officer, and i knew that i had not assaulted a federal officer. i realized that i didn't have enough money to defend myself because this is a very expensive thing. i was interviewed by the f b, i'm let go at the airport. they knew what i was doing. they let me go. that's you can't, that can't be charged with sleep. so he talked at length to heaven and you can see
5:26 pm
his full interview in the next few hours. they are on. i'll see also you can find on monocle, salty dot com plenty more for you that and also on argue cheap sites as well. i'm calling bry, we'll keep watch on what's happening in the netherlands as a 2nd night of anti lockdown. unrest unfolds this saturday. turns into sunday. sheila thomas will be here to keep you updated on that for me that calling bright bye bye for now. ah ah, join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess of the world of politics, sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm.
5:27 pm
and people is something they can't ride on police report. it's an all cash in december 2020, a group of anti finishes. sell out a film crew access for 3 months. so like if people are organization, if an idea that it must be opposed that channel out the gate while they may kill their faces. but they can say what they believe in. we believe in helping our community. we believe that fascism is one of the major threats to united states has gotten reuben, this is a chance to see who and t for really are in order for me to extract my 1st amendment right and say that my life matters have to be on to the teachers who have hallmark is we can't charge the police, we can't trust the government. we can't trust anyone except ourselves to protect ourselves in ah, a
5:28 pm
with i'm african return senior watching, going underground this week. so a meeting that could have designed the future of our species on planet earth, the virtual meeting between economic superpowers of the 20th and 21st century, the u. s. and china, as the contours of this century become clear between shanghai cooperation, organization, nations, and nato. join now from rome by the former adviser to the european union's i representative for common foreign and security policy and accept my 6 official alice to croak gals to thanks so much for coming back on, you know, biden's, the national security adviser said america is not seeking to contain china, it's not a new cold war, simultaneously briefings to journalists for me. anonymous senior us officials at
5:29 pm
the aim of the virtual meeting was not to ease tensions school. but what that means was your day on the virtual meeting, but she didn't bring a job wide. i don't think it went well. and i don't think very much was agreed kind of thing on the meeting and followed a very ted, she telephone call between brings and the chinese foreign minister on the case a few days before to prepare for prepare for the meeting. and then the pending harsh words coming out of china in the, in the way of the meeting. essentially the, the chinese, certainly the foreign minister was saying, very clearly to blame. listen, you're not going to have a good relationship with us. you're not going to have the sort of relationship competition if you like. well,
5:30 pm
no competition. while the explosive issue of taiwan continues in the subsequent pos, they made it very clear that what they felt was in an editorial in the global times . they describe as this was hypocritical, what, what he said was nonsense underlined. the fact that this is a very serious issue, that the confrontation could come with the united states over the straits of taiwan. but if america, who goes on supporting secession is in taiwan, if it goes on encouraging this attitude, then we have long prepared for wall. and i do, we don't know how to get through to the well or it isn't ty paid, but this is very fair. it's very harris indeed. so i think what was it
