a new law in germany which combats hate speech online it was making headlines again this week this after the facebook account of a member of the rightwing alternative for germany party was blocked it came after she called for people to join a women's march against rape killings perpetrated by migrants in the country i organized a women's march to the chancery almost every day we read about horrific rapes and murder of women the more women come the more pressure it will put america and politicians from the old parties together let us take to the streets to fight for our right to freedom and some of the terminations despite belonging to a party known for its strong anti immigrant rhetoric layla bilger who is a women and children rights activist regularly travels to syria and iraq to help people she is of migrant origin herself and was surprised at the official reason for her facebook. as going to facebook have a show on my travels with facebook started a few years ago face to face with has
a big issue with women the migrant ground which you can notice that i don't have a nordic lumination for can see that i'm originally from the south and here in germany i find some human rights which isn't always easy in islamic countries people like me are silenced by facebook and since i have a certain popularity and quite a large following i was blocked for thirty days then my account was deleted but that wasn't the first time my accounts have now been purged four times and since i am a member of the air of d. which in germany fires for women's rights i'm a nuisance for facebook and the mainstream media. was banned under the new law that forces social media to delete offensive content within twenty four hours after receiving a complaint otherwise companies could face huge fives earlier this month the deputy leader of the alternative for germany party facebook and twitter accounts suspended after she criticized the country's police for saying happy new year in arabic. again says people who express their anger at migrant policies in germany are seeing
their voices silenced. this public policy of the german government and especially of the old harness is intended to help young men from islamic or african countries get settled in who are going to accept their religion culture for this reason and german citizen who has lived here forever is being ignored and in the case of facebook or twitter it works like this they censor all critical statements even though they are consistent with the real situation of course it runs against the mainstream political line in germany for this reason they try to silence all critics of the german government's asylum policy on. drug related crimes are becoming so bad on parts of the paris metro that train drivers are reportedly refusing to stop at certain stations that's according to a union representing the metro and bus network in the french capital. he went underground when best to guide. for most parisians the metro is
a staple of life with its winding tunnels and lines that stretch across the city it's often the easiest way to get from a to b. but down in the underground the gritty underbelly of the capital is being exposed drug related crime and violence has been a long standing issue comparisons metro but now the unions representing the train drivers say it's spiralling out of control dealers and muses including those taking crack cocaine a new god thing what they doing there. lighting up metro drivers is so fearful of attacks at some stations many are choosing to longer stop there a survivor more for survive more quickly is very dangerous and it's terrifying if you can range from a simple punch to people using nails knives or. stations like marks
and market a year or specially troubled druggies has come here for their daily fix and gangs have taken over. the problem is very dangerous for both the metro workers and for the commuters it's even more dangerous they are targets of fast i've seen more than one hundred attacks take place. within minutes of arriving if mark's door metro station we witnessed what looks like a drug deal the man with his back to the camera has just arrived with a bag of hand he was the platform stopping and exchanging some packages with people and then he left with his bag empty this seems to be the new normal. there are lots of drug users and i think that with everything that's happening in the match through this should be doing something most of the time the drug users are aggressive and. everyone is afraid for the security of my children. twenty
twenty five. lived there we will we verse of course. been attacked just one time because. we had in the middle of the night is smart for. playing with that problem present president problem as the security robberies can happen sometimes it's maybe aggression physical aggression sometimes do isis are man attack another young man. as we traveled through some of the most dangerous stations we saw metro security and police trying to crack down on the problem this exceeded in moving this bunch along but in reality all they've done is move the problem to another stop on to another day charlotte even ski arty paris what are the weekly here on r.t.
international thanks for joining us so far for people are suing the university of berkeley after claiming to have been injured during last year's and protests that's in the mix of your stories after the break. it's. the eighth. the beginning a. good politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or
rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. more somehow i want to. let you go right to be precise it's like i'm up for like three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. first six. joining us for the program schools in three russian cities were attacked by the students this week resulting in dozens injured and six people to tight. the look in the north with her children screaming very loudly we were scared at first we thought it was a joke but then we realized it was serious thought there might have been a fire or
a bomb we ran i saw three little children covered in blood honestly it was horrible blood was spilling from hands from next absolutely horrible. some guys told me there are two youngsters in masks running to the classroom injured a teacher started stabbing kids then one of them jumped out the window trying to escape another cat running trying to injure the children and himself. the man into the class inflicted injuries sustained free school children any
teacher with the next a child received a blow to the face another one was struck on the back and another girl. was it isn't as clear as it was in a calm nothing like this could have been expected from that action and i know many could anticipated this would happen. that when i look at the list you can. tell you that the motives of all the of the attackers are still unknown officials are suspicious that the assaults were inspired by the columbine school massacre in america in one thousand nine hundred nine and back then that attack left fifteen people dead and twenty four injured. now the three incidents in russia are believed to be connected to each other according to police that's prompting russian lawmakers to push for the closure of so-called columbina as groups on russia's largest social media platform or the following page for example
is believed to belong to one of the suspects it shows subscriptions to several groups dedicated to the columbine attack and contains videos about the killings. too it has started sending emails to those who might how followed retreated all like suspected a russian propaganda accounts during the us presidential election the company believes almost seven hundred thousand users fold into that category the e-mail users to learn more about the nature of the russian propaganda effort and one of those contacted was political comedian tim young he told us that liking the retreating should not be considered propaganda so i thought it was very interesting getting a letter from twitter because i i never recalled reach tweeting or liking something that i would have viewed as russian propaganda to have donald trump elected or or
manipulate the election is a propaganda tool if you agree with what you're liking or re tweeting i'm not sure who is being influence as an american by the tweets especially the tweets that they showed they had a few example tweets and a lot of them were just basic political messages that anyone in america could come up with so i think twitter and a lot of the democrats think americans are extremely stupid so i'm not sure exactly why twitter thought that i would have been fluent stood by something. outside of this country to begin with in the election. to twitter to explain how it identifies accounts related to so-called russian propaganda so far no reply by u.s. lawmakers have accused the site of playing host to a torrent of dissent from asian during the twenty six thousand election campaign said it would work to id and inform people about the alleged propaganda a letter that i wrote calling on these companies to individually inform all users who are exposed to fall misleading and inflammatory posts generated by russian
agents we will be working to identify and inform individually the users who may have been exposed to the irish accounts during the election. it's nearly impossible to be able to show what is actually political propaganda because in. and election cycle everything can be considered political propaganda and what is considered a different country meddling in another country's election because i've been contacted i've done digital marketing before for many people and i think contacted by foreign leaders to run their digital campaigns and do social media for them so would that count as an american meddling in their election like there's so many different ways you can categorize this and it really doesn't make sense but it plays into the old now one year old or longer conspiracy theory that russian the russian government colluded with the trump campaign which there's still no evidence of four people who filed
we talked to katrina who is taking legal steps against buckley university she believes the compost on the city's police took sufficient action during the protests. but when the attack started and specially after i was pepper sprayed i was completely incapacitated there was nothing i could do to defend myself so i had no choice but to turn around and just face the barricade i was worried about what was happening to my husband it turned out he was just a few feet away from me being beaten worse than any of us he was being unconscious afterwards by the police both the city and the campus police were clearly inadequate given what happened when the injuries that were sustained right i saw personally it was police initially standing outside of the building that they later locked us out of i thought in their knowledge with a wave and by the time the attack actually started they were nowhere to be seen
they had locked themselves inside the building and wouldn't give us any aid at all university of california berkeley has declined to comment but the city itself previously filed court motions seeking to dismiss a similar case but the lawyer representing the victims says they want to send a message to cop a star and police to do a better job. the injuries caused to our clients two of which were beaten unconscious and still suffer from psychological disorders post-traumatic disorders so they are seeking money damages to compensate them for that but the main goal of this case is to send a message to campus police and campus universities that they they have to do their job you know i liken what happened here the deliberate effort to not intervene and to not do anything to fire men from watching a building on fire with their with their hoses water pouring out of them but
they're too afraid to go into the building because they might get hurt it's the goal of law enforcement it's the role of law enforcement i should say to serve and protect the public and they did not do that well thanks for joining us so far for their weekly on r.t. international top stories of the day the week the program will at the top of the hour. in order to overthrow a regime it does take popular discontent and popular mobilization but it also requires actors with the leadership of the regime who feel that the regime is no longer serving the national interest you need people in the military or the bureaucracy or both who are willing to see the regime change otherwise they would be able to put down a popular revolt but did not have support at higher levels. yes
i was but with a. couple of you. yeah i mean the last election i. would say was most of them were dumped and we will all soon but you know one of them stood up and we will be. should i just saw. a funny joke on i'm going to need you to go up to the middle of scott's movie you've been to cops believe. to be. easy show reason you look staged. it was mostly a whole bunch of. the proceeds go to the imus show do you can you get other cronies up and you the mob boss may be getting us all most of the smidgen of us they. were a bit coy my theory eric out there because like nine hundred rock there that this
was their year twenty seventeen to go to all kinds of crazy eyes and yeah it sure is now experiencing a bit of a fall back. good politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. i want. you to go on to be cross with what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the walls of my. first city.

was it you know i was here and i stood here with a thirty thousand dollars business by myself for like three months nobody came in there one day i get to watch as they say we're going to have three books and we're going to six kind of sort of defined facts vis a vis big fat fakers pages believe b.m. and actually i was blessed to have you know have some money instead of my work in film production. of live in this neighborhood for years i care about my people my situation is to be the best example i possibly could me so you know what i'm an all complain about not having a barbershop am a poor one and so i went to bob a college game bob's license that stuck with me that of a tame a barber teaches license so i
was stuck there and on the bubble chicago fire a t.v. show you almost got for me to do was go to the marley with the me brother. because we were traveling through south dakota. and. who's
a native american who is part of the dakota lakota sioux nation ok and he runs and he started on the rez because there's a lot of poverty on the reservation so like you he said you know what i'm going to start a business on the reservation to all the young people can say you can have your own business he just said. pretty much just you know there's no barbershop you did all of that at a time when it was probably the most difficult to do that in the economics of it yes and no i guess in the sick congo is one of most a gated cities in the world we have three different neighborhoods. our sales after americans were divided to gangbang or so as a lot of things that keep us apart
said the barber shop is not just an easy thing to do just you know properties in my books it's a lot of different factions that have to do with just our business. to really.
know what you're saying one of the worst things they could have been to a man and it was business happens to us here so somebody came through a door stop right there and started shooting two clients killed one shot. in his bar shot two years ago. your barber right now who's here. is those below where badge ready for war and it's totally changed perception this is your neighborhood your barbs i mean bob saget shot a village you go back to the course is this pretty was all you have it would you like to go back to you would feel it was blown out of i don't you my god no nothing but this spirit of death you know me. keep people where nothing to the less well feel also pretty much going to happen. we had nothing to do with everybody knows that we're positive and those that will stand it we license bob as we do is
supposed to so why should just fall back and that they did is one of situations with tragedy well it's really turn a trial so was something bad happened but it was used for good so i was was wash out for it are something somebody has bunch of these kids so they call for ceasefire labor because they realize that they're cutting to hear of the kids that are going to hear kill each of us want to stand up because they expect to stand up to this people so that's why we need to get all of barbra's go again obamacare was going to give the kids fifty four hours in a park for a couple of hours it is what they call the brotherhood of a cease fire. would do is empower the barbers to start to speak to their class get this war starts there but soviet power pharmacist really realize who they are. what they're. what their position is the size of the use their power to create change and they start to talk to these people the kids look up to you the city is here they come to you you make it look good they will listen it may actually be able to
tension and gave those two hours between valdosta over the war college at a barbershop cost with mayor emanuel so fed up may have been able to finally you've done something right. romer this world is about this that whenever you get where you are that is and by the way you google me i'm perceived as a trump loven right wing christian and christian conservative all of the dead about to get about it's not the right bible reading but my here's a. bill this is here here's. this article about. you when you get to the t. word from there. you know so we reduce the number who gives reasons i think what i'm learning is i'm just stephen bach. when you are where you're from who i am one i've been through it you know i'll tell you right now man i find myself more blessed and happy and joyous and free the more i stop whining
