10:03 am
a dictatorship we cannot have secret police abducting people into and putting them in unmarked vehicles. i cannot believe i have to say that to the president of the united states i know that we're outraged americans should be appalled despite the controversy it hasn't stopped president trump announcing that more federal agents will be sent to other u.s. cities saying it's a result of violent crime not protesters and i am announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into american communities plagued by violent crime will work every single day to restore public safety protect our nation's children and bring violent perpetrators to justice federal officers will be sent to albuquerque and chicago both democrat run cities critics say their deployment is political an attempt to make democrats look weak on crime but mary of
10:04 am
chicago says she welcomes the partnership with federal agents but warns against using the same tactics as important. i've been very clear. not happening in chicago we don't need federal troops we don't need unnamed secret federal agents roaming around the streets of chicago that's not democracy that we saw unfolding in the streets of portland as a result of this federal action that's what we call tyranny and dictatorship and we're not having it in chicago. residents of chicago say extra police once sold the issues facing the city saying action on gun control would be more effective in tackling violent crime. so let's head live now to portland oregon where i am joined by activists and journalists laura laura welcome to the program and we know that you've actually been part of the protests you but you've been in them this evening
10:05 am
tell us what you have been witnessing. well for the last 8 days arlen has been protesting for black lives matter and the television and then around the nation tonight protesting primarily against after about 11 in america met and talked earlier but recently there was a riot clarence so i'm going to give out i do apologize but it's been a lot of back and forth but if you're right. the president says for his part that these federal agents are stepping in in order to combat rising crime so what is your response to that there there is no rising crime in early in oregon there are protests that have been nonviolent their property destruction but no no injuries to any human being i protest whatsoever this is this is not the case trying to seventy's and to quell civil unrest and to suppress free speech. the governor for her part has said and i'm quoting here we cannot have secret police abducting
10:06 am
people have you witnessed anything like that. i haven't but this did i go people have told me that it is but it's the dense it's terrifying i mean the people that have been abducted and released with it a few hours without a work but of course there's no guarantee that will continue to have it it kills like a message that they can do whatever they want to us and there are a lot of very right here to talk with us about the resolve among the protesters expect especially you know before the federal agents were introduced and after because you know some politicians they are claiming that you know the introduction of federal agents is now just exasperating the situation is that something that you would agree with based upon what you've been observing on the streets i would absolutely agree that i would say that it's galvanized us it's become clear that this is an issue even beyond its brutality which is a huge issue but at this point the have to take a stand if federally and then for coming in and it's without any kind of i don't think that. violent is pressing free speech in crowd control your ship that is very
10:07 am
response dangerous but is yet to take a stand against that and i think all of that if you buy it in these protest group 100 or 206 go to 1000 today. laura jedediah activist and journalist joining us from the streets of portland oregon where we have seen protests in recent days recent weeks thank you so much for giving us a bit of perspective there thank you very much. well now it is not only at home where the united states is experiencing stormy relationships it is dealing with china which is also relations there hitting a new low u.s. authorities have ordered beijing to close its consulate in houston texas and president trump says that it might not be the last for the u.s. it's a move to protect intellectual property but the chinese say it is just a political provocation just hours after the order was issued firefighters were

destination. the european union's 27 member states on monday agreed to a historic 750000000000 euro coronavirus recovery fund after 4 days of heated negotiations today european parliamentarians will begin scrutinizing the deal in detail they are due to vote on it in a couple of months but have already identified several areas they are unhappy with the rescue package is the biggest joint borrowing fund ever agreed by the e.u. it consists of 390000000000 euros of grants and 360000000000 euros in loans. let's get more i'm joined by our correspondent max sander who is standing by for us in brussels so what can we expect from this parliament today because the stakes are really high max well that's true i mean peace will come together to discuss the outcome of last weekend's or the summit the european leaders some of
10:12 am
them over the last couple days and the special session here today in brussels and today is not about voting and on the package but largely about finding common ground within the european parliament a common negotiating position commission president was off on the lawn will be there as well as you counsel presidential michaud who is one of the architects of the steel and there look likely to meet a large discontent with some of lot of the lawmakers already threatening to throw out the deal as we're hearing but threatening to throw out the deal i mean that would really be a massive if that doesn't happen especially considering how far hard fought this still was max what are the main criticisms. well i mean pieces are unhappy. about a long list of things i'm one of it would be. watered down rule of law mechanism and then also a significant cuts to the overall size of the european budget as well as individual
10:13 am
programs and there were bits of budget cuts in areas such as youth research digitalisation and climate which used to be on top of huge agenda the green deal just to point out $11.00 point a cornerstone of commission president from the alliance presidency was cut sic in that significantly. given all of those factors max i mean and given all of the stakes after this resolution today how are things now likely to proceed going forward. so this is the beginning of further negotiations between the parliament and other e.u. institutions and they will have to see how much wiggle room there is how much room for further improvement there is on the on the parliament side the political deal the political outline has been is done this has been discussed over the last couple days but the legal details still need to be ironed out and this is where the parliament can come into play and then after the summer break come september
10:14 am
lawmakers will come together here in brussels again and vote on the deal finally whatever they still look like it in a vote on the deal there's no backup plan if they if they vote against it is there . so there is no backup plan as of now but it's quite unlikely that the parliament who will throw out the deal critics say this is there's subaru. this is the criticism by lawmakers is largely saber rattling they know homeport this deal is how hard fought it was how. long it took and how urgent it is but. president so the president of the european parliament yesterday made clear that the european parliament will not vote on the deal as it stands now they want to increase the pressure and they want to make changes to the areas that they can max and our correspondent in brussels thank you. let's turn to some other news we're going to get the latest developments in the coronavirus pandemic now more than 15000000 people have been infected worldwide according to

10:22 am
for joining us pleasure thank you very much as we've heard the pandemic has really hit your industry hard in some cases we're seeing government relief programs we're seeing investments to help keep the industry afloat afloat is this the right approach in your view. it is the only approach to have this in the stress of our you know it's an unprecedented crisis you know we will lose half of our revenues for $10.00 to $20.00 so more than $400000000000.00 we will losses will account for $84000000000.00 and we are facing a dramatic cash crisis castrate so the intervention of states is absolutely key to meant in this industry afloat particularly to inject cash you know or you know accounts in our balance sheet you know profit and loss that
10:23 am
absolutely key for survival but i mean what what and to what extent can you guarantee for the taxpayer that that business will indeed come back in the future and to what extent to airlines actually need to rethink attentional in the way that they are doing business because the pandemic doesn't seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. but you know asking for guarantees bedsit be good what we hope because it's also viable it so future is that it will come passengers will come back. but it will it will take time. that we should catch up with these topical trends so 29000 figures to be simple 520222023 so it will last 2 to 3 years to recover 1st but secondly this does this crisis is not coming from a figure in the business model it's a purely external shock that is coming from government measures that have been
10:24 am
triggered by they could cause a crisis and we support these measures but because they have a restricted traits because they are the off growth of borders we have been you know forbidden to fly so we have no revenues and still costs so it's only the crisis i mean from the business model apologies there i just wanted to ask you because he said 2020 to 2023 and that is what you're when you're looking at here and if the as the years are going takes i think. how do you think that the industry though will look then will it have really returned to pre-crisis levels. we are not sure full of keys to reason 1st you know probably we will have less operate fewer number for readers so the industry will have shrunk. by that day which is not to good news for everyone it's not going to lots of just leave but it's not good news for passengers because it means you know
10:25 am
a restricted office less destination less competition so but that's the consequence of this crisis and that is and the outcome of the main economy trade us in bankruptcy is that we are seeing you know in the streets so that the 1st but 2nd point the demand for travel could evolve and particularly the business travel we could see a reduction in business trouble because you know companies are making savings on the business untroubled budgets because people are more reluctant to travel business for whatever reason though that's that could be the the evolution and certainly a challenging time for industry me thank you so much for joining us here to discuss a little bit more about it director general and c.e.o. of the international air transport association alexandra clicheed at. turning now to some football news liverpool seals of the premier league title last
