2:02 am
how julian a sound is supporters, reacted to the british high court ruling that the wiki leaks found it can be extradited to the united states. washington wanted to appeal against a previous decision blocking a song from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. campaign slammed the latest ruling, which was handed down on big you ends, human rights day. we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the extradition of julian so on. so the u. s. which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that julian assault just being targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances. as i saw, it would not be held under the maximum security, the strictest, maximum security conditions in prison over there. and that he isn't on well is being he's made out of continue to say that he is indeed
2:03 am
a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision, not any point. class has also concerns about the trustworthiness of america has got routines to pointing to one of those report sell in the in the c i a i had talked to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill him speaking outside the high court this morning. we've heard from stella morris to partner who is incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening for? how long can this go on today is international human rights day? what a shame, how cynical to have this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalists of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison,
2:04 am
accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia killed teams. many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions. who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once? the british judiciary, this is on every level with the u. s. campaign to get a and i to is 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion and this sounds. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas without doing that is children without their dad stay on to fight to free. judy massage, that's what i say. we will prevail eventually, many people outside as
2:05 am
a high court say, where is the human rights? in the case of june assange, obviously listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice, but they call it the royal court of injustice. a diplomatic a just is that it was being announced a protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. but here's how we got to this point in 20. 19 julian songs was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy in london, after the country terminated his 7 year asylum there. it's all refuge following sexual assault allegations in sweden, which were later dropped. the british authorities, though arrested him on
2:06 am
a separate charge of jumping bail. america wants the wiki leaks, founder extradited on claims of conspiring to hack government computers and published classified material. january this year, a british judge ruled against extradited both a fears about his mental health, but also rejected his bail application, claiming that he may fleet or sharing their reactions with an essay whistleblower william benny and wiki leeks editor in chief, kristin robinson was actually in believable and so i run a good this decision should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states has all opportunity and the magistrate court to make those so called us, you are not. it simply press them forward after they lost in the menus court in january, all of these so called assurance and have been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that those are some of the worth of paper they're written on. they are simply not reliable. we are dealing
2:07 am
here with a nation where individuals on the top level in the junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian assaults. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the law. this is an absolute travesty of any legal process. this is a political case and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is a political persecution that really both bad for freedom and democracy around the world. publishing data in violation of the, you know, what that the united states law is not a worldwide laws, not in law in other countries. so there's a real problem with this to, to brief court ruling on that issue of the espionage extra spending 1st amendment, right. they said it was justified in time of war one as well. i would point out, we're not in a war now. congress is not declared war and we have no declared war. why are they
2:08 am
in dieting? the senior editors, at least of the guardians in new york times the washington post, all of them who have also published this kind of curious, why are they doing that? that's a violation of our laws. they're not equally applying the law. when was the last time you had a verifiable truth from the united states government that they put out to the public? when, when can you justify from through other sources and means and methods? the validity of what they've been telling you can't, they've lied, they lie to congress directly, they get caught lying and they just ignore it. nobody does anything. i mean, they're exempt from the own laws that they pass. that that's why we have here in the united states, 2 sets of laws, one for those of the people and the rest of and those in power have a different set of laws of washington may be offering diplomatic assurances over sanchez, potential incarceration, but classified documents of late beth, how the u. s. appears to have broken those promises in another extradition, kate,
2:09 am
they've mendoza says, and he agreed to be extradited by the trip to the u. s. on the condition that he be allowed to serve any potential sentence in spain. he says he even signed a document with the american and spanish governments, assuring him as such. but the u. s. held him in jail for almost 7 years before eventually returning him. and that was only after he took legal action against america. journalist, which of med has revealed the case papers and told us more you know, they've told us that he can serve any potential sentence in his home country australia. they said the exact same thing to mendoza. they told him just just let him come to the us and he can serve any sentence given back in spain. in mendoza's case, the united states signed a contract, an explicit contract with mendoza, and with spain saying that he must be returned to spain. he can not be given a life sentence, he kinda be tried for concert structuring. they violated this, the u. s. kept him for 6 years and 9 months. the only reason mendoza was allowed to go back to spain is because he sued spain twice in the spanish supreme court. and
2:10 am
he won and spain threatened to cut off the extradition treaty with the u. s. that is when the u. s. felt pressure, they wanted to keep extra dining people from spain. and so it's only because this was imperiled and in danger of being cancelled that they then sent him back and was extradited for drug trafficking and money laundering. and he told me, if they did that to him, if the united states did that to mendoza, what are they going to do to julie and i thought this is a common practice. the united states violates it's assurances, it's diplomatic agreements, whether it's iran nuclear deal, whether it's, you know, a prison transfer assurances for a saundra window that they're going to violate the mark my words. this is going to happen. mendoza, certain of this. can i interviewed him for this? and he's been dozens of people from spain, from columbia, from mexico, from all over the world, who've been given assurances. and once they get to the u. s, it's violated these documents that i published. they weren't seen by the court yet . they weren't submitted in court. and i'm convinced that if the judge had seen them, if the judge's study of these documents, they could not let the extra sure go ahead because they've accepted that
2:11 am
a song just suicidal. they've accepted the judge, apply the test correctly, that he would be even more suicidal. he would, he would drive an expedition to deal with, drive him to take what except it all this. so the only reason they allow the appeal to go ahead today was that the judge should have allowed us to give assurances before and that they trust us assurances, well, i'm very sorry, but these classified documents say otherwise. let's talk on, on notice that the extradition ruling came not only on human rights day, but also the same day to us, wrapped up in multinational summit for democracy, which president biden pushed for people to be able to breathe freely for criticism and the process for doing the opposite towards the wiki, expand it. and as we close out, the 1st gathering, let's let us together reaffirm our determination. the future will belong to those who embrace human dignity. not those who trample one wish to potential. other people aren't those who stifling and who give her people the ability to breathe free,
2:12 am
not those who seek the suffocate their people with an iron hair. this shameful verdict, in a political case against a journalistic and public figure is another manifestation of the cannibalistic world view. of the anglo saxon tandem, the west marks international human rights day and the end of the summit for democracy with dignity. this news is devastating. the persecution of julian a sondors, the disgrace. meanwhile, biden is holding his cynical democracy summit and the hypocrisy and the cruelty. oh, of the u. s. is busy promoting democracy in other countries, its own seems to be at risk. a stock on based thing. tags, annual review of democracies around the world has for the 1st time put the u. s. in the backsliding category. song freedom campaign of john re says that supporting democracy in other countries doesn't mean it's doing the same at home. i think it's remarkable that especially on human rights day that the judges in this case should have found that it would be safe to extradite julian assigned to the country where
2:13 am
it security services lead c. i a has previously been threatening to kidnap all kill him. the problem with many more than states, they're all for our democracy and freedom of speech and a free press in other people's countries, but not necessarily in their own. and until we get past that hypocrisy and understand. but freedom of the press is a universal human right, because it's part of freedom of speech. we won't be making very much progress. rushes slamming the wester for fueling escalation over ukraine, and is also voicing concern at nato's actions in the regions. and they could lead to a large scale conflict. a course has been set to draw ukraine into nato. such irresponsible behavior is an unacceptable threat to our security provoking serious risks for all parties involved up to a large scale conflict in europe. our separately,
2:14 am
the u. s. prevailed on thursday, the 30 javelin anti tank missiles systems were delivered to ukraine in october. that part of a $60000000.00 military aid package, with another $200000000.00 donation. still an option on washington's table. that says, russia's being urged to respect borders by data and the ego with more calls to de escalate tensions with ukraine military build up in on their own ukraine. this races tensions and undermined security in europe. we call on russia to return to diplomacy and to the escalates and to respect ukraine's sovereignty and to the toil integrity. the year of autumn, we expect russia to deescalate and refrain from any aggression towards his neighbors and respect the rights of sovereign states. comes after a ukrainian navy ship named dumbass approach russian waters without authorization on thursday evening, a move that russia regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other rattles in the area. or ukraine, though insists the ship never entered restricted waters,
2:15 am
though the vessel did eventually change course and sail away from crimea coach straight. i'll give you more perspective here the eastern ukraine region of dumbass has been making headlines since 2014, when war broke out. the rest has become a seat of discord between kevin moscow ever since our senior correspondent marine gas. deb discussed events in the region with andrew pharma. but the situation on the ground in ukraine is perhaps worse to war because that is where people are dying. people are dying, people are suffering. people are going through through al and have been going through hell for many years now. we have seen of the united states pacifically pumping weapons into ukraine for the ukrainian military. and these are weapons b, b, b, they a javelin miss are supplied by the united states, or by dr. drones supplied by turkey. these are weapons that are flowing into ukraine and immediately going to the conflicts of where the civil war is being
2:16 am
fought in the east of ukraine. there are more than 2000000 civilians are trapped in the conflict soon in east than ukraine. and they're just having to break it out, people going to sending their kids to school. they always have to worry about a tang cello, a mortar round landing. they're on the grounds of the school. vladimir putin is like, and what is happening to a walker? sort of so she, i should say the risk for me as the 1st step towards genocide, what's going on and on bass now very much resembles genocide. we see it and we know about it. all we hear about is these potential plans emanating from the she, i of the white house, the british government. these plans that no one previously knew about that russia was planning to invade. a huge area of ukraine does unclear how they would be able to achieve this with, with, even if we believe the caea and others with, with such a small force. but let's look at what is happening again on the ground. you have the os c that reporting on c's for violation,
2:17 am
so their work is constant and round the clock. ukrainian artillery enforcers destroyed or damaged 5 times more civilian infrastructure at schools. that's workplace is people's homes. 5 times more infrastructure was destroyed and damaged by ukrainian forces, the vice versa. you also have the situation in which ukraine still still 6 years on, refuses to negotiate with the breakaway republic. aside from that, they're also all manner of promises and assurances that you can keeps on hearing from, from britain, from the united states, that they've got their back, that thou help them, that they'll keep the russians awake. and what are, what that does is it emboldens you credit. and unfortunately, the situation is such that aside from very one sided coverage, you have a situation in which piece simply isn't desirable. journalist and author, thomas fast vendor, explain to us that there's a real risk of
2:18 am
a full scale european war there is. so something that has not been here for decades . that is the perspective, the real perspective or for a major european war. so he and now the key for a potential war in europe lies now 100 percent with the key of government. if key, if decides to provoke a russian invasion and that there will be a russian invasion as soon as key of starts a major offensive against the break of a republics, in that case, automatically. busy the blank shack will be full of western support for the ukrainian side. so the western narrative says that whatever crimea, or whatever a key if does to reclaim or even reconquer are the break away. republics, or even crimea would be executing their sovereign rights on their sovereign territory. and we should hope that both the washington and moscow
2:19 am
and of course, all to also of perez and berlin, understand that there is a real risk of a european war here. without here we have to have you with some the way bad news for american shoppers as prices search to a near 40 year. i will tell you about that among our stories after the break and, ah, we've talked about the rising chance of civil war and america. and it could either be between the have yachts and the have nots. it could be between the big coin staves, like texas or florida between the non bitcoin states. but the rising tension is comparable because of the rising kinney coefficient that is now only spread between the very top and in the bottom is getting extremely wide.
2:20 am
awe many, all the delta would be the sort of p i did. i could well, you know that together are surely any more transmissible than delta. and what happened? you got something which is popped up with more than 30 changes in that spy protein that we're all interested in. it's accumulated, all the mutations we've seen in different varies all in one bar. and that raises some very interesting issues about, you know, where did it come from in the 1st place? is it possible to get even more meat? what's going to happen in terms of disease severity and maxine protection? so it is suggesting the know the virus is still got some way to go from the mall. surprises oh, again, an american billionaires being forced to surrender antiquities that he had been
2:21 am
hoarding for decades. the case of hedge fund, pioneer and philanthropist. michael stein how to shocked archaeologists and historians, the world over his collection of plundered art is estimated to be worth about $70000000.00. well, let's take a look at some of their precious items in question, many of which were looted and illegally smuggled. one is the stags had righten crafted in the 5th century b, c, and today valued and around 3 and a half $1000000.00. another a masterpiece was the law acts, a small chest of human remains with an impressive $1000000.00 price tag to that. and also among the ancient artifacts, a set of deaf masks which shirt date back to around 7000 b. c. not sure he's smiling about now the rub for a lot of people as that steinhardt gave up the treasures as part of deal. which means that he won't face any criminal charges. the geographical origins of these looted antiquities to the straight across 11 countries. among them, italy, greece and israel all robbed as part of their cultural heritage. and experts say
2:22 am
that the damage he's inflicted is immeasurable. huge damage has been done to the countries awards. in such you're looking to cult saves on the main damage. these are cultural in the sense that we are losing the history of his objects out of common sort of past. and this is the, the biggest crime that it is being performed by looting on the global level, the loss of to study the loss of information. apart from anti toughing cabinets. any hardship for michael steinhart is a lifetime ban on acquiring any other relics in the future. and the public outrage of that with the overwhelming majority of respondents to a poll, insisting on greater punishment for the billionaire. the justice system in the us was constructed primarily for 2 reasons. punish the poor, protect the wealthy. no jail for the rich and powerful. this country has been sold to the highest bidders. our country is legal system as a joke,
2:23 am
stolen 70000000 in art, and no jail time. i remember again louisiana getting 40 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread because he was starving. there is no justice if you're rich, i'm sure that all there will beats answers to pick up the case. again, my preference would have been to be breasts are, do some carving, could possibly earn a conviction as well. i'm not very happy or above the final result, it is demonstrated very clearly that michael stein card knew that there were serious problems with the provenance, the collecting history that these or for the objects she was acquiring water at least, should have had very, very strong indications about her, the possibility of being looted ms. objects, americans in the grip of surging inflation levels not seen since the 1980s with
2:24 am
price hikes across many sectors for 6 months in a row. in november, the price is for you as consumers jump nearly 7 percent compared with the previous year, figured by the corona virus pandemic, inflation that had everything from food and energy to power rentals and cars. but the u. s. federal reserve is still hesitant to take serious action to curb the spikes, such as raising interest rates economies. peter l told us that higher inflation drives people to take on debt. there's a view that low level inflation is, is good for the economy. i'm not sure. i subscribe to that, but certainly the kind of inflation we're seeing now is a very pernicious that makes life doubt as many aspects of the economy in many ways in the pandemic, or rather, the central banking response to the pandemic is the main factor that's created in place right now, last year the federal reserve increased the years, wanted to supply by between 30 and 40 percent. and the root cause inflation is lots of money chasing the same are fewer goods and services. so that's the main one that
2:25 am
is going to try to lift interest rates to, to tamp down of this in place. but they can't do they stop to open market bond purchases? nate said they won't stop back until april or may of next year. so it's gonna be a while this employees may get a bit higher before they're able to do that. you don't even really benefit from high inflation systematically r r r r creditors because you take debt and inflation rises, you wind up paying off that debt in cheaper, which is a mess. less valuable currency, whether it's dollars or pounds or whatever. so in a sense, we should hires, ah, inflation rather promotes a higher levels of debt, which is also bad. anger over president biden's handling of the economy isn't bad news for everyone. i had butting entrepreneur in the state of massachusetts, is tending the dislike into dullness, opened a shop, selling some unique anti bite and merchandise and says that people are deeply unhappy with what's going on in that country. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm mm mm

2:27 am
oh no, and i think it's fantastic. i'm from out of town and i have a absolutely job. i'm glad that you are satisfied with people most surprises for them. i know that people have always had different views, but this is not about the division. this is about unhappiness with our president and what's going on in our country. there are some liberals that are definitely on board unhappiness that they have with our leader right now. our president is not doing what he said he was going to do and what the people want. and there's a lot of different major topics that are issues with our president. people were
2:28 am
chanting in the stands and you know, colleges. busy high schools, it seems to be, it seemed to be catching on really well in our customers because we had some new england for trump stores our customers were asking for it. so we started carrying it and it went over. it was taking up 80 percent of our sales. so i said, let's just do a themed store. just let's go brandon sort and that's how we started. can i so look so far this weekend from moscow. i'm calling bry we back here with the next update and just over half an hour to see you then. bye bye. ah. ah. backbreaking toil forced labor
