7:03 pm
country is very important. everything is essential to survive the wind. so cause a dead, some police, some protest, his protest is been armed with that automatic pistol burning some buildings in our marty. i've been speaking to some catholic emigres here in moscow. they say they want to get over to our market because the processes of taken over the airport, their people wandering around aimlessly with their suitcases, looking to leave the country. there are people here on further afield in the catholic, the asper looking to get back to try and sort the situation out. keep it come as they can't get back. they come talk to their relatives because the internet has been disconnected in some 50 as well. messenger sites have been shut down. they've been repulsive people feeling safe, near banks that have been on fire and handing out 2010 gay the candidate currency to protest. now the president kind of has called this an international terrorist
7:04 pm
gangs at work in our marty and all over the country. and because of that, he is appealed peacekeepers. but by virtue of the collective security treaty organization to come in to cause extent, russia has confirmed that where they will be doing that, we can get what the kind of said right just now with this, you carry the season, buildings and infrastructure, including sites, housing, firearms, they've also captured the airports and 5 planes, including foreign ones. evelyn forces and i'm fighting them outside l. my t, these terrorists gangs are essentially international. they've undergoing serious training abroad. their attack on catholic st on must be viewed as an active aggression. therefore, on the basis of the collective security, tracy, i have today appealed to the heads of the c s t o states to assist catholic stone and overcoming this terrorist threat. in fact, this is no longer a threat. it is undermining the integrity of the states. is an attack on our
7:05 pm
citizens who asked me as the head of state to urgently help them. i considered the appeal to the c s 2 states to be absolutely appropriate and timely kind of has actually said the, brought in an anti terrorism operation in marty and to, to the unrest there has asked the peacekeepers to come in. the peacekeepers will be making sure through fields are observed. they will be protecting infants. the things the things that protested the really going after. marty is around 3600 troops as part of this. c s t o the collective security treaty organization. some of them will arrive from russia because they may cope that organization among them, newer shit and catholic family, it was being valerie. i mean, you could get done and because you could, some kind of has said that he will not leave the country and will react harshly to these process. the cabinet course has resigned after they took
7:06 pm
a backtrack and reimpose some limits. but the kind of so far, being resilient and, and, and resisting these, these process in cuz it's done well, thanks very much for update donnie. i'm sure it's not the last time we'll have you in the studio to discuss those were intentions and cause i've done. thank you very much. now covers tons busiest. a hope all marty international airports is also reported. have been taken back by security forces actors over on earlier in the day . either it's has been significantly damaged and flights of not resumes so far, meaning that scores of people trying to leave the country stranded at the airport, or t spoke exclusively to one of the russian citizens stuck in a marty. then when right now we are in a safe place and this is the most important right now. but before the situation was quite dangerous, we were in the apple building and realized that there was no security cordon around the airport. although it had been there before,
7:07 pm
the military and employees left the airport in a hurry, not really trying to evacuate us. one airport worker told us to urgently leave the terminal. we had protested, had broken inside, and we have left through the gate with access to the runway. there was so many people running across the field and some about work as directed us. some people said waiting on the plane, we were running through the field and ended up on the road where someone drove us to a hostile. here it's calm and quiet. we are waiting for the russian foreign ministry to tell us what to do. now as i understand it, some airport workers are still trapped in the airport and the situation there is currently very difficult. you just have to protect your life and not panic when people are running around screaming, it scares we were just trying to stick together and run out of the airport. the internet outage makes it worse because we haven't been able to get information on what's happening. we have only been able to phone relatives earlier, we spoke with our correspondence, eager to dan of,
7:08 pm
and he had this to say in his report from kazakhstan, but almost every major city here in kazakhstan has become a scene to absolute, may ham and chaos to day basically, tens of thousands of people took to the streets in an action against the government, against the authorities and one of the cities that so most action where things get completely out of control is the former capital, the city of alma tave. basically there the protest as they apparently managed to completely drive out all law enforcement, be the police or national god. it's a state of lawlessness there. they attacked and designed the police while they were still present in the city. so now they have access to guns with live ammunition, that's also as some of them stormed and ransacked and completely looted a local, a weapons shop. that's as they also, they completely burned to the ground. at least they attempted to burn to the ground, the local mayor's office, and as,
7:09 pm
as the also stormed and also set ablaze the former residents of the president. now we are right now in the capital in the city of north fulton and the current residents for the president is right behind me. things here have been are quite quiet, i should say r g throughout the day. but it does feel like a low before the storm. for instance, we weren't allowed to get any closure to this residence because it has been completely cordoned off because, well, our, the law enforcement seeing was been going all elsewhere around the country. well, they are preparing for some action here as well. and scenes of chaos. they also, they plague the streets of other smaller towns as well as protests is also clashed with police and demanded for the government to step down for the president, i should say to step down because the president had disbanded the government the night before. in some cities, for example, the police even joined the protesters and took that side. now as for the demands,
7:10 pm
they're all very blunt, basically, and, and to corruption, an anti oligarchy, and a change of power. basically, a complete change in overhaul of leadership on how the country operates. and so far the government and the law enforcement, they have made attempts to quell to quench by this protest, but well, or wherever they made these attempts, thee utterly failed. and so right now, given that the government's response has in the past few hours, been very timid. i mean, one of the larger cities in the countries right now, apparently, completely without any it has, it has fallen to the protest as the government does not hold any control over the city. apparently, it's unclear if for the local authorities, if the authorities of the country will be able to contain and stop this pendulum of protest from swinging even further and swinging out of control. well, in one town demonstrates as pulled down a statue of the former president north fulton, not by of who still
7:11 pm
a powerful force in cassock politics and has been building since the government lifted a fuel price cap a new year which sent prices soaring. the cabinets has since resigned and the president has reinstated the price limits, but that still didn't calm the situation. in this video, you can see a crowd surrounding a police officer in al marty and seizing his firearm. there are also reports, the crowds are trying to capture the local. busy interior ministry building earlier processed as managed to storm the city administration where we spoke with local journalists who worked near the administration building in our marty, which was attacked by protest as they describe the case has been unfolding over the past few days. oh, gotcha. gotcha. were there were clashes between protesters and police in al mattie at night. our working day began very early in the morning at about 5 am. we filmed the aftermath of the protests. the cities at central square was the epi center of
7:12 pm
the unrest. we saw many police officers at 1st. the protesters were quiet, but then flashed grenades went off. we saw a fire start on the side of the administration building, which was then seized by protesters. people then began approaching our neighbouring tv station. we were evacuated from there. half of the traffic lights do not work, and al martino and internet blackouts have begun. the protests are clearly organized. they began in several cities at once, which has never happened and cassock stand before. leaflets are handed out to the protesters. there are demands for social and political change about 10 demands. it's difficult to say who is behind them, but the organization of the protests is very clear. you got other than that, which the journalists are avoiding the square with the crashes are taking place. because there's apparently shooting with life fire, one armory was destroyed, weapons were taken, some people behaving aggressively using sticks and battens. they took helmets and
7:13 pm
bullet proof vests from the military. that's just a few troublemakers, but the main crowd of protests is, is condemning their actions. and trying to prevent violence, they even snatch sticks and battens from the guys near by said that they do not attack anyone. there is a heavy security presence in the city, police, and military. they're trying to move the crowd away from the square, but it's not working. the crowd retreats than advances. police shooting rubber, bullets stung grenades, sometimes his hand to hand crashes with protesters. we tried a couple of hours ago to get to the mayor's office, which was seized to day. we were told there is shooting going on the military, his already we taken the residence and they are trying to push back the protesters . this mood has been building out for a long time. the gas price was just a trigger. all the problems, social, economic, political, it's accumulated, in my opinion. first, they started to make demands about gas,
7:14 pm
and then they realize they could demand other things. a little independent journalist martin summers thinks the views of the riots as may not necessarily be shared by most of the catholic population has been very stable for very long time. but then of course, because of the stability in the, the, of the regime over many decades now, accumulated social problems can take a spark in the way that we've seen. but obviously it's a very fast developing situation. and it's very hard to know what the real, you know, feelings of ordinary people on the demonstrate zones in very far up. but a lot of what they're doing is probably quite alarming. html, law abiding citizens. if some people are determined to regime change, then then that's going to be a bit difficult to, to mediate, isn't it? i alternately, that things should be decided by elections, but it doesn't necessarily, you know,
7:15 pm
the writers do not necessarily represent everybody's views on i really don't know which way could jump is obviously, you know, in any society this, the authorities are not going to allow people to burn down public property, et cetera. and in some of the news, the french president has said he wants to irritates the unvaccinated, resulting to the use of some pretty crude language to make his points. his remark came as the national assembly heatedly debates budding vaccine. hesitant people from bars, cafes, and cinemas. and opponents have rounded on a manual micron for his choice of words at present and shit and say that manual mac crown is unwise and his office is an unworthy and irresponsible remark by the president. you shouldn't insult people when you're trying to get them to agree with you. 7000000 french people have to far from medical care and access to vaccines on them to an astonishing confession from across. it is
7:16 pm
clear, the vaccine pass is a collective punishment against individual freedom was an extraordinary couple of days here in france. this is a bill that was supposed to glide through the parliament without a hiccup. but 1st on monday night, the debate was suspended and that was simply because the majority party, this is president mack, one's own party, simply couldn't get enough bodies in the chamber for a show of hands to support a motion for the debate to continue into the wee hours of the morning, the debates resumed on tuesday, but following that extraordinary intervention by president mack on, people were gaston shocked. as you saw there at his words so much. so they demanded that the french prime minister get straight to the chamber to explain what the president had said. there was a fiery opposition already to this new measure here in france. covert measures of
7:17 pm
already seen massive divisions within society. and since 2020 windows restrictions 1st started, there have been mass protests in the country. ah. so what is this vaccine pass? warden? why is it perhaps so different to the health passport that is currently in place in france and is already controversial? well, just give you an idea if you're on vaccinated in france right now, you can pay to go and have a test if it's negative will be valid for 24 hours, meaning you can go to cafes or restaurants. this vaccine, passport will change all of that substantially. it will mean if it's passed that those who are in vaccine it will no longer have the right to access any of these
7:18 pm
venues. it will even deny them access to long distance trains. the majority people have vaccinated in france, but they remain around 5000000 people, age 12 and over, who are vaccinated. and as you can imagine, this is very divisive on the streets of paris. there was mixed reaction. i'm against the vaccine pass because it will not prevent the virus from spreading freedom is restricted and it's affecting everyone. i don't trust the government very much. i think it's enough. if people take care and behave responsibly to take the so i'm against it. i don't find it all right, that they take us from a health path to vaccination pass. each individual should have a right to do with their body. what they think is right for them in natural immunity works gosselin. i am for it. it's of my opinion that i am protected and i can go where i want and do what i want to so long as i present the pass. so also new elizabeth, i don't think vaccine passports are
7:19 pm
a good idea because it infringes on our freedom. and i think that there is insufficient information to make an informed decision. as a young person, i'm left wondering what to do. i did get vaccinated because the alternative would mean i'd have certain freedoms taken away. now from the government's point of view, it says this vaccine passport is needed to stop the rapid increase in covert cases . that country is experiencing at the moment, mainly due to the new on the corner variant. however, given that intervention from macro on, there is a sense that those who may have been persuaded to vote for this bill in the past might be looking to change their mind. and it's not clear now whether this will pass at all. precedent, mac on is a man who has been described as an arrogant president by many people over the last few years. something he himself addressed really in an, in to be where he tried to humble himself in front of the french saying that he had learned the lessons at his mistakes. the way he had spoken to french people and to
7:20 pm
the french citizens in the past. but it does seem from this latest outburst that that is a lesson he truly has not yet learned. also, i heard her at oxy international inflations at senior high in the u. k. lead in some analysts with suit, the cost of living catastrophe, more not shortly. ah ah
7:21 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race in his on offense, very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i'll see how that strategy will be successful, very political time, time to sit down and talk with ah, welcome back to the program. now for some bad news for ernest in the u. k. as
7:22 pm
a majority of economists think people's wages will be out paced by inflation. thus, according to a financial time study, inflation is already up to 10 year high in the u. k. and come by with new tax hikes . it's all hitting britton's hard with experts wanting, overcoming cost of living catastrophe. arts he's been looking at the impacts rapidly. rising prices are already having. it's not so happy. new year haven britain s the eat or heat di lemme means households could find themselves. $1200.00 pounds a year was off in 2022 according to a leading think tank. sterling wages plus soaring energy bills and taxes will cause a cost of living catastrophe. 2022 said to the year of the squeeze was real. wages said to be no higher next christmas than to day. and families face a typical income hate of around $1200.00 pounds a year from april as a result of tax rises and sorry, energy bills come april,
7:23 pm
the new energy price cap will be set, meaning bills will jump by $600.00 pounds and the same amount will have to be coughed up due to tax changes all the while real wages will only grow by 0 point one percent. the result, particularly for low income families who already struggle to make ends meet, will be devastating or not. people are now turning up food banks in general, and just seeking help who ordinarily would not have even considered a possibility by be 6 months ago a year ago. but more people are turning up food banks and asking for no passes, which means that they literally make the decision between heating, anything you know, that missing hands decide between getting food and having the main to eat it. so obviously gave me the impression that things were a lot more dire than my people 1st. well, the cost of living is continuing to rise. the government don't
7:24 pm
or capital costs that it's going to cause a loss of di, a hardship, hundreds of $1000.00 deaths. that within the next 12 months, the hard, the shows you, but will be the elderly, the vulnerable disabled with a loss of low income, single parent families, feeling the strain and the squeeze. where, in my opinion, he called forth a lot of people into criminal justice. survive as if all that isn't bad enough. inflation is through the roof, leaping to a 10 year high of 5 point one percent. the bank of england is predicting that it will reach around 6 percent by spring. so versus wages falling in real times at least. but this current on income in the words of boris johnson is a change in direction lower. but you towards a high wage, high scale economy, there is no tentative. the u. k has got to. we can do much,
7:25 pm
much better by becoming a higher wage, high productivity economy. so technically we were warned, but not everyone is buying it, including politicians on both sides of the spectrum. heating bills are going through the roof. punishing tax rises on the way. wages are stagnating, universal credit cuts have hit struggling families hard. all world prices in the shops are rising and inflation risks, eroding the value of savings and pensions. rising wages are great unless prices rise faster. inflation matters is about what we can afford and how families make ends meet in a tough month. and it's not just those in the house of commons that are calling for a policy change. the trade party entity u. k has demanded reducing the a t to cut the cost of bills instead, while others say the government should fit the bill. so large this overnight cost of living catastrophe. that is hard to see how the government avoids stepping in
7:26 pm
top of the government's new year resolutions should be addressing a pulls energy bills hike, particularly for the poorest households who will be hardest hit by rising gas and electricity bills. if there isn't to you turn soon, 2022 will be a tough year for many whose bouts of already been squeezed by the pandemic, empty, and people's pockets. so it's struggling families are likely to bear the brunt. they're not looking at the reality. the reality is they can reduce energy places they to comb with the warm home discharge. well they've got to look at the individual people, me, individual families. they've got to look up the cost of living. the cost of living is way above the cost of income. now that's the price rises and the way to arrive is not coming through quick fall. if you put way job, we call the rise rate inflation. but going to raise the interest rate. you've got
7:27 pm
to look up the only option to reduce the price of living costs, food costs of the, the cost, the cost of fuel that needs to be use to come back and with the income people in the this country is going to go back very quickly. now just before we go, a quick recap on the situation because i've done on verified video is shared on social networks, so consults, being fired, and people fleeing as invest in the central asian nation. spirals, the countries busiest air hope or marty international airport. there's also reportedly been taken back by security forces after it was overrun earlier in the day. meanwhile, the russian lead c. s t o organisation wilson peacekeeping troops to catholics done answering calls will support the combat what nor so tom is calling a terrorist threats. the remarks about terrorism came in a speech from the cause like presidents when he recounted the chaos of the country's main. airport 5 planes were reportedly seized. cassim,
