i. how it would i find it hard to call it a dream in which at least true. it's a problem in the fact. 100 mayors in france signed an open letter to president crying foul over the. distribution of bank seems around the country we hear from one of the sick. of the party carlos. this is not enough especially compared to the rest of the country. a fortnight of unrest in minnesota where anger over the killing of.
2:01 am
police is no sign of easing off. united nations says extraordinary levels of harm the been inflicted on afghan civilians in the 1st few months of this year in fighting between the government and taliban the us fails to pull out of the country by mid september. it is the most trusted media outlets but guarded secret revelations by a c.n.n. director called. into question. why there are places you could be this morning i know so do appreciate you joining us here on r.t. . a half 1000000 french citizens are being treated unfairly with not enough vaccines to go around that's the allegation being leveled at president gore in an
2:02 am
open letter that's been signed by more than 100 bears from the region one of the signatories. told us why people in his part of the country feel that they're being mistreated. only 4 percent of the particle or you population received 2 doses of the vaccine this is not enough especially compared to the rest of the country what's more i want to remind you that the lockdown was reintroduced in our region 2 weeks earlier than elsewhere because the situation was very tough and even though the incidence rate in part the colored is over $400.00 per 100000 inhabitants. latest data shows 16 and a half percent of french citizens have currently saved one shot of the job less than 6 percent are fully vaccinated their thirty's aim to get $30000000.00 people in ocular by the summer there demonstrate again says the biggest problem now is the shortage of jobs. the president has been saying we have to
2:03 am
accelerate the vaccination rate that we are actually at war with the virus and the crusade or mass vaccination campaign is better to be started now i'm sorry i chose such a comparison but we just need vaccines and then we will be protected health care workers who work with as leagues and volunteers they are all on standby now missing the most important thing in the meantime france says it will push on with using supplies of the johnson and johnson bank seen as planned despite the firm holding shipments to europe after the u.s. suspended use of its job over blood clot concerns we asked people in france what they think when i belive me. a vaccine that was banned was then put back on the markets so today we don't know what to believe of course people are afraid. oh not only does that mean we want to trust our government because they have the power to make their decisions i would also like to say that i prefer to get the vaccine
2:04 am
later we want to believe it's safe but we must be careful i think of the x.r. if a vaccine can cause blood clots we should put the brakes on and study it more and not just use the general population is a guinea pigs. if they've found direct queens to this problem so i think that it's risky it's like astra zeneca too said the parents and the research i don't know. with blood clot worries casting a shadow over 2 major vaccines another player looks poised to corner the market brussels has secured $50000000.00 additional doses of pfizer by on texture the future orders could prove more expensive in march company has indicated a possible hike in prices post pandemic earlier we spoke with german m.p. martin he says profits are being prioritized over people's health you can see the dollar bills on the ice and if you see the. president of the biotech company you can see clearly now it's looking for profit and it's not looking for health and i
2:05 am
think and. all organizations should work together. 3 is playing with the hands of the people by raising prices and so will of course poorer countries will not be able to create for example to the price of the new you're seen if you go to the open end of. that seam then you can see just. nearly double the price when you see that the european commission already decided to buy it without seeing any really doesn't matter what it costs them more local you know this market you situation it's dangerous. it's been a 4th consecutive night of violent protests in the u.s. state of minnesota demonstrators there once again taking to the streets despite a curfew imposed by the state's governor hit the streets to condemn the killing of
2:06 am
dante right protests gathered in the protesters i should say gathered in the brooklyn center area calling for justice for the 20 year old victim who was shot of the being pulled over in a traffic stop on sunday the officer pulled the trigger potter says she mistook her gun for a taser he's been charged with manslaughter initially peaceful protests descended into clashes with police. perhaps. i.
2:07 am
protest in dallas importance where the police union building the set on fire in seems reminiscent of the chaos that ensued following george floyd's death last year in nearby minneapolis a few centuries located just 10 miles from minneapolis where floyd he's killed at the hands of police sparking a wave of nationwide protests he died when officer david sjodin placed his knee on his neck. with murder manslaughter his trials currently into a 2nd week radio host wendy priest says the arrest will be ending anytime soon. what's happening right now it's not going to stop it's going to get worse because the leadership around many places is weak this is something that the democrats have said they can handle and i don't think they can handle it because. they have allowed things to go on like this in minnesota before in portland. in atlanta they were allowed this to happen claiming we're iranis are 1st amendment rights i would
2:08 am
say honestly from a large grown confidence point of view i would say that the leaders of the communities should get together with the leaders of the street in local government . in discuss solutions. the u.n. says extraordinary levels of hama been inflicted on afghan civilians in the 1st few months of this year it's revealed the number of civilians killed or injured in fighting between the afghan government and the taliban in the 1st 3 months of 2021 is significantly higher than it was a year ago according to the un in the 1st 3 months of this year there are almost $800.00 casualties almost a 30 percent increase compared with last year when a zation is also worried by the increase in the number of women and children the been either injured or killed they were the longest war in u.s. history could be over by mid september joe biden announced the 11th of that month as the date of the complete withdrawal of u.s. and nato troops from afghanistan adding that they have stayed too long in the
2:09 am
country we delivered justice to bin laden a decade ago and we've stayed in afghanistan for a decade sense sense then our reasons for remaining in afghanistan become increasingly unclear together we have prevented afghanistan from serving as a safe haven for terrorists attacked so against our own countries. since 911. that have been no terrorist attacks on out sword organized from afghanistan however the date is months over the deadline set by a deal reached between the taliban and former president donald trump in response the militant group we trade to the warning against extending the presence of u.s. troops saying that that would compound problems early this week the taliban said they will not attend planned talks in turkey until all farm forces leave afghanistan for pentagon security analyst michael maloof says neighboring nations
2:10 am
will shoulder the burden of washington's withdrawal formally with u.s. troops it probably will be we might instead introduce private military contractors to try to preserve the kabul government which we created because taliban has made it very clear they don't want to talk to them they want to set up their own emirates in afghanistan but that isn't the half of it even though they only control a portion of afghanistan used to have other tribes the northern alliance for example the once a piece of the piece of the action and corruption run supreme's of the country could easily dissolve into a civil war for countries that will be east that will stand to lose the most will be those countries in the region with us pull out it really helped countries such as russia and china not to devote resources to try to keep their government working the problem is that they're going to have to deal with this now if the u.s.
2:11 am
leaves altogether and that means in terms of the security aspects because of the terrorism threat al-qaeda is is growing in afghanistan as is isis and that would be a threat to the federation's own way and. the news network who slogan makes that bold claim it is the most trusted media but after a c.n.n. director was caught out in a sting operation questions have been raised if that's really the case don't quarter has details. the most trusted name in news it's a title c.n.n. has long prided itself on maybe you buy it maybe you don't but what would you think if a network had made it to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do. believe that it was. but again you are creating a story here we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. i think that he is the worst president we have ever seen but what
2:12 am
president trump just said was undemocratic and false the president seems to think that dominating black people dominating peaceful protesters is law and order it's not he calls them thugs who's the thug here this guy is should not be president cnn's charlie chester's spilled the beans over a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down from none other than c.n.n. president jeff zucker himself naturally trying to make joe biden out to be a spring chicken was the other side of the anti trump propaganda coin yeah i mean. we did it right but. i don't know what he's shaking or whatever and he brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story like this is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain.
2:13 am
you know why. he made you savior she. hated me as a. young period. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again leaning on unverifiable claims from u.s. intelligence and its reputation as evidence the. in last year's elections the network claimed that moscow was trying to hurt joe biden's chances by spreading conspiracy theories about the now u.s. president i'm talking about russia tacking more election russia once again interfered in the race for the white house russia is indeed interfering in the 2020 election with that kind of a double standard it should come as no surprise that people's trust for c.n.n. is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal attacks just.
2:14 am
makes this worse when you're caught red handed hiding the way you do business from your viewers that's one thing but accusing someone else for breaking the very rules you yourself were caught breaking well that's another it's a rinky dink toopid organization what do you want it c.n.n. that scared defense immunized from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very close and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé these must be produced before something's done things done nothing jeff zucker still there everybody still there but let me explain something their ratings are plummeting who wants to watch c.n.n. if there's no trunk what do you do talk about what a great job biden is knowing what a great job camelot harris story i don't think so now me we can't believe what we're seeing and our country is in complete collapse with our borders being
2:15 am
destroyed and being invaded daily with crime around with a sense of on nimby leave a bill distrust with with vaccine in efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up what are they going to do hey joe biden is doing have a great job nobody thinks that where is by the you know where he is so. james o'keefe and project very just may get their wish by virtue of the implosion that i believe c.n.n. is involved in as we speak. we have. comments on the story will bring you any response. from facebook significantly extend the powers of its supervisory body people will be able to request to have. removed explain somebody more news after this break.
2:16 am
water. water. and then. it's art just art here's $100000.00. to go with it but you just don't have the artist at heart it's. productivity money it's as if it's something and. what it is of this is a bit. russia

drug has confirmed that unlike some other vaccines on the market there were no cases of blood clots. new videogame spot controversy in the united states with a muslim civil rights an advocacy group calling for it to be d. platform 6 days of volusia is set during the iraq wars bloodiest battle and is accused of normalizing violence against muslims in america and around the world more details is artie's it gets done. more than 100 u.s. marines killed around 800 iraqi civilians 2 dead in bombings some short others incinerated to death this is the 2nd battle of fallujah reduced to stark statistics the bloodiest battle of the entire iraq war for american troops now made into a video game it was the bunkers they would build inside houses. you would go in the
2:19 am
house would be your quien and then they would open up our new girl. from d.-day to the battle of stalingrad from viet nam all the way to her done and further back in history the video game industry is no stranger to projects based on real events but the developers of 6 a day in fallujah say their title is bigger than just a game it's a documentary there isn't a campaign with a story. you know. there's not this is a this is a documentary with interactive sections and a lot of interest in the kind of him for the game was for him we're taking this as a real and we're trying to. present him as a documentary we're so here's a few documented facts about the battle tens of thousands of civilians that refused to leave the city a city deprived of power and water for days
2:20 am
a city where the main hospitals entire medical stockpile was nothing more than bandages a city that dispelled the myth of america's precision targeting of insurgents as a single mortar shot was answered with a sure fire power across neighborhoods and last but not at all least the city that enjoyed the full brunt of the u.s. chemical weapons supply. as follows the residents were surprised with this video game contrary to the fact that the us army came as peace corps destruction and debris remain today there are
2:21 am
still scars here from the prohibited weapons the presence of the u.s. army was a source of sorrow and agony to residents and the city's infrastructure. this video game is politicized it's underestimates the agony of the residents and the trauma of the city i'm against this video game as it shows the war in our city it's been a wrong policy to wage that war from the very start we want to boycott of the game was a big we didn't believe that we buy us the distress and the agony that the war brought to us now this video game shows the distress again the scars from the war are still seen here in folger people are traumatized here we don't want to see kids and women killed again houses demolished would have minded boycotts of this video game. you already know what i'm getting at none of these events above apparently will make it into this documentary game developers who want to keep it atrocities afraid the reality of fallujah a place where people live their lives has been glossed over for the sake of
2:22 am
a thrilling combat experience if you're going to call the game documentary video game in at the same time you want to be trustee free then you're already misrepresenting these historical events because there are numerous atrocities only attempts that i'm aware actually count i mean that in solution please the figure between 4006000 that's something that needs to be addressed and to try to portray it atrocity 3 year are ready changing the story or it just or if you do. storing the story. with more than a 100 u.s. families suffering from losing their loved ones to the sands of iraq their sacrifice has every right to be perpetuated in a video game but with 8 times as many iraqis dead and countless more scarred for generations they had by the indiscriminate use of chemical weapons their ordeal deserves at least not to be emitted from the story this is
2:23 am
a commercial jungle and commercial companies don't care about anything other than profit so there is no ethics there is no well if he has a brother which people want to buy well whether it is and so this is an absolute rubbish it resents criminal behavior of american soldiers as here all week long versing rolls by training the victims as terrorists and criminals heroes it's immoral treating of the tragedy of the victims as a game is totally alex sensible and encouraging bêlit relations of international law by killing civilians which is contrary to geneva convention dreamy makes one wonders why it is getting it's been made. facebook and instagram users who feel that harmful content has been wrongly allowed

to remain online will be able to appeal to have it removed the platforms independent oversight board announced tuesday it will now start to accept such requests enabling users to appeal constantly want to see removed from facebook is a significant expansion of the oversight boards capabilities we expect everyone on facebook and instagram to be able to peel continents left up over the coming weeks . the move significantly broadens the powers of the supervisory board before that it can only ask facebook to reinstate content the latest move comes after the social media giant face pressure including from congress to act on misinformation and abusive content in particular during the pandemic the 2020 us elections and after the january 6th capitol hill bra it decision spot criticism online though with accusations facebook is just trying to avoid its responsibilities. overside boy you are a non biting entity whose only purpose is to deflect blame for facebook's shameful
2:25 am
policy sense of you lack of moderation in exchange for a 6 figure salary wow facebook instagram literally has a propaganda censorship board crypted i'm in the process of assembling an oversight board to handle my business affairs in the future i cannot be sued or held responsible for anything because the board authorized that everyone should have an oversight board well facebook itself is sort of acting like a government i mean and in ways that richer more powerful than many world governments it appears to be that they want to put a layer between themselves the company facebook mark zuckerberg is company and the censorship and the content so they can have this this this board if you will that they've sort of said is independence from them make the decisions for them it protects them in a lot of ways from them seeming like they are the ones censor ain't they're the ones if you're waiting content and what people see and do the way they're attempting to get around this is by saying that this commission this board whatever

2:27 am
the policy that's been introduced i get is part of a culture of demonize they should have muslims and islam across europe that we see in particularly some of those candidate big countries the lurch to the right this is not about polygamy it's about a handful of people who might partake in that practice this is a power. context in which it's time a for be a demonization of muslim is because the mainstream are against the whole notion of multicultural society and what's sway them and large parts of europe have done in the last many decades is introducing ways alights cultures way how you view women religious opinions that do not mix and should not mix with the swedish or for that matter european way or lots of it the problem with swedish social democratic government is that they always leave the door open

for misuse of the law which this exception might very well be you cannot just come in there just quickly i'll give you an example of why this exception is put forward based on the basis that my consent coming to sweetie and for example maybe many children there's one husband one father and he says look i've gotten wives you split up the funding where you potentially if you don't have an exception in that doesn't matter in my case because we cannot adapt our society is to the way of the people coming here it must obviously be the other way around that's what you do you take the custom to where you go i mean that's what you do you move. to a country and then you adapt to the country i mean where do you start with that i mean people like kent and his ideology will be very happy not to have many refugees or how many people in the sims within europe back to reality they're just not brave enough to say it's i think the vast majority of muslims who called into
