9:02 pm
posters but overall this demonstration seems to be rather peaceful paris is beefed up with the security at the moment as the french government decided to close several iconic landmarks that used to be the meeting point for many protesters here and also the french government decided to deploy armed soldiers in this sheets of the capital and impose fines for those who decide to violate those new measures and seeing you destroy the soldiers is strictly set out extremely precise they have different modes of action to face or threats you could go as far as a pinning fire if they're all someone else's life is a threat we spoke to some people living here and it seems fairly easy ansel that divided over such measure. i think this is an extreme measure obviously this will not solve everything but at least it will help to avoid further destruction and i don't know for sure i don't think anything good will come of the government's
9:03 pm
decision to use the army but if you see his own ass for what he did last saturday burned down restaurants and so on i think this is a necessary measure. it's not the army is mission shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition is so you. know i think if the army opens fire it will prove that crisis management is not sufficient i think they're bringing in the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not sure lucian's the problem yellow bus protests continued for the nineteenth weekend but this saturday it's a different location it is less violent the butt of the movement continues. the syrians i'm across it forces have declared a final victory over islamic states off to capturing the terrorist groups last pockets of resistance. this will be added on medical what sort of the mcleod on behalf of the syrian democratic forces and all the soldiers and allies that fought

with us in the same trenches today we announced the defeat of the so-called islamic state and the end of its ground control in its last pocket in the buy goods region the village of the quds has been the focal point for the s.d.s. for several weeks the final assault was delayed due to thousands of civilians trapped in ice last stronghold earlier i doubt they have joined my colleague in the studio to talk more on the issue. isis is global it's in afghanistan it's growing it's in iraq it's in africa it is essentially international what has happened is that it has suffered a defeat they've taken guus but still there in the countryside there in the desert the say that isis has been defeated is that i would say in and you know they're like a cancer it will take a long time to get rid of them nevertheless washington is selling this as a political win the political message the big isis on klav has been destroyed and
9:05 pm
not as what trump is saying we have won against isis we've beaten them and we've beaten him badly now we've won it's time to come back we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria. jumped back and forth declaring victory saying there's another battle another victory so we'll see how long it will be before the next time they declare a last victory and what will this mean then for the four hundred u.s. troops that are still in syria where there's there's a few hundred. foot is a border crossing between syria and iraq the united states was quick to jump there stablished the presence they've kept it for years it basically cut off syria and iraq so an iran iraq damascus syria route is impossible while those
9:06 pm
troops are there basically the united states holding out for along with the rebels there is a strategic it is a pain for the syrian government it's. basically a thorn in their side and nevertheless there's a lot of united states allies on the ground syrian kurds for example who they've armed to the teeth and my bet is and many other pundits experts predict this that the united states will stay to safeguard those allies syrian kurds against. while we have completed the territorial defeat of isis in syria and iraq. we still have much work to do we've been clear that the campaign is not over we will continue to support the coalition's operations in syria to ensure this enduring defeat but as for the final victory again trump possesses trump was jumped
9:07 pm
at that he said that you know declared final victory of isis they've been destroyed here it's all my. it's all you know of my achievement but no they aren't the score they're hiding out there they're still in those tunnels underground hiding among among civilian populations make no mistake is preserving their force they've made calculated decisions to preserve what's left of their dwindling personnel and capabilities by taking their chances in camps for internally displaced persons and going to ground in remote areas they waiting for the right time to reemerge many of them as zealots there still as fanatically loyal to isis as they were when it all began. central london has seen one of its biggest protests in recent history organizers of an anti breaks in march are saying more than a million people took to the streets calling for a second referendum it comes amid increasing uncertainty over the u.k.'s divorce

from the e.u. on thursday air leaders agreed to postpone the country's withdrawal deadline but only by a few weeks the prime minister to resign may will now try to get the british parliament to approve her deal despite it having been rejected twice already however she's now warning that photo my not take place next week as expected to throwing breaks it into further disarray following all the twists and turns his party. remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake. it all looks a bit like this it was amazing to get her breath as it deals with a combination small group of women tasked with leading the trunk bravest hours since world war two hasn't got many people doing up to defend her it's just going on and on and on she is the roadblock to this house reaching majority when will she
9:09 pm
develop a backbone and stand up to do was this mission to disaster week rick rick britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels of boiling off the brags that bus but if you think about it to reason may wasn't the one that called the referendum in the first place a certain previous prime minister did and she has hammered out that deal with the e.u. like she was supposed to but the politicians in parliament won't sign off on it because some of them are hard bragg's it is that want to stick it to brussels and many of them remain is that want to stick with brussels and pleasing the politicians in a predominantly remain a parliament while carrying out the will of the people is turning into an impossible task some say she's trapped like the time she couldn't get out of this car carrying the poisoned brake that challenge.
9:10 pm
even donald trump has had to dig i'm surprised at how barely it's all gone voices of support are rare i don't always agree with her but i know her to be a woman of coverage i also feel sorrier for because we have actually given her an impartial trot for critics though there's no excusing mase bungled bragg's it with public anger over brags that running high. laughing at the prime minister has become a national pastime. come with me and together let's see. the evening. what's. the difference. and who can
9:11 pm
forget her famous touch phrase bricks it means bricks it years from now to reason may is likely to be seen as the braggs it prime minister that her legacy depends on at how message to the people of britain is that she is trying her hardest to deliver britain's departure from the e.u. this i am absolutely sure you the public have had enough your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds tired of m.p.'s talking about nothing else but bricks it when you have real concerns about our children schools our national health service knife crime. you want this stage of the bricks it process to be over and done with i agree on your side she might be forgiven for wondering if there is anyone left on her.
9:12 pm
political comments consultant klezmer r.t. explain why every step in the briggs it process is only making the situation more complicated. when briggs it was first announced as an idea as a concept and there was no meat on the bone as to what the concept of what the process actually would mean and we start off in a place with such uncertainty there's no surprise us to the situation room now so unless the identity of briggs it is made clear be disruptions and stalling methods will only continue i think the sentiment right now in parliament is that. it's almost an impossibility of this deal going through and if it does go through it will go through under very pressured measures which means peace in parliament won't vote with what they believe is to be the best way for forward but will do it because the time pressures are so tight which almost holds parliament to run them saying this is the only deal we have and you better put it through because
9:13 pm
you're certainties are too big and too widespread to even imagine. a long awaited report into alleged russian collusion in the twenty sixteen us presidential election has finally been submitted by the special counsel robert muller the confidential document was handed to the justice department which says miller has not recommended any new indictments has callup more pain with the details. report has been submitted the final report from bob muller the special counsel appointed two years ago to look into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia during the two thousand and sixteen elections and at this point no further indictments are being called for we're hearing from the white house which has spoken up and said the next steps are up to attorney general barr and we look forward to the process taking its course white house has not seen the report does not know what it contains it was simply submitted to the department of justice has long maintained there was nothing for special counsel robert mueller to find he's stood firm in saying that there was nothing to the allegations made against him let
9:14 pm
it come out let people see it that's up to the attorney general we have a very good attorney general he's a very highly respected and we'll see what happens there's no collusion there was no collusion there was no obstruction there was no nothing it appears that this bob mohler report is a bit of a failure it hasn't turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years long but we've already heard democratic party leaders talking about other options they have for keeping the scandal these scandalous allegations related to trump and russia alive now adam schiff a democrat in congress recently floated this idea for keeping the story going i said he agreed that the counterintelligence investigation may be more important than the criminal investigation because it goes to present threat to our national security whether the president and anybody around him a compromised by a foreign power there's been many occasions in which the u.s.
9:15 pm
public was told that some kind of bombshell or groundbreaking revelation was about to be revealed but it seems that the two years the report has finally concluded and people are waiting to see what is made public from that report after the u.s. attorney general makes that decision having very u.s. presidential hopeful for the next hereon party says the democrats benefit the most from the probe. what we've seen so far has been basically a joke this whole thing was supposed to find a russia russian called lucian and so far all the indictments all the guilty pleas that there have been guilty pleas and all the people found guilty in court have been found guilty of things that are other than russian collusion this was supposed to be a big whole thing that was going to under under uncover some connection between trump and russia and it turns out to be just a bunch of petty usual nonsense just normal politics this is not russia inclusion this is a waste of time effort and energy so i expected or democrats will drag this out as
9:16 pm
much as they possibly can not because they think there's anything to be found but because they know that this trial this kind of circus is helping to energize the democratic base helping them to say like look trump is really bad for these reasons . now which is rescuers are evacuating thirteen hundred people from a luxury cruise liner off the country's west coast one passenger films the moment the ship began to lurch violently after an engine failure during stormy weather. you're dead. according to those onboard windows were smashed and water came in at least eight people were injured no way i'm stunned by king size ten thousand mayday signal off or it started drifting toward learned as he was told the ship is now thinking down the remaining passengers will be taken to shore four
9:17 pm
helicopters are involved in the rescue operation which is expected to continue throughout the night. those account canadian prime minister justin trudeau is being challenge to have his feminist credentials more on that after the break. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the multiple different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home field where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective from i'm used to surprising people and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to do.
9:18 pm
by the way ways of that slide here. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. it welcome back the canadian opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the prime minister calling him a fake feminist and a fiery parliamentary session michel rempel accused justin trudeau of silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal the use of the term feminist zero
9:19 pm
three zero one more time if this prime minister such women that's why you see muscling the former attorney. the former attorney general who the lawmaker just mentioned was one of the first to blow the whistle on a bribery case that shaken the canadian government to its core jodi wilson raybold says she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into canadian engineering giant s. and c. level in the company's one of the world's largest construction firms it allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation projects and one is now accused of being a fake feminist trudeau hard earlier heaped praise on those defending women's rights and proudly declared that's exactly what he does although critics claim he was just looking to score cheap political points. being a feminist is the right thing to do but it's also the smart thing to do i'm going
9:20 pm
to keep saying loud and clearly that i am a feminist men should be feminists as wow i am proud of that maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind so we'd like you to look quite willing to see people coming not necessarily mankind. there's lots of things you can do to be your mentor feminist as a man but here's a simple one don't believe it. is not about holding true to one's values it is not about actually having a code of ethics it is about winning elections government has made it such
9:21 pm
a priority they have used accusations of sexism they have used the term feminist to prop up their party so much that other conservatives are almost forced to bring this up in the conversation because they have made it such an important political debate so if your party is going to be about equality half women half men in the parliament that is going to be the hill that your party guys on that you better stand on if you're going to use that as a weapon well then be prepared for that to be used as a weapon against you trudeau when you don't live up to your own values this will certainly make it a closer election than i initially thought and i think the conservatives could have a chance at taking things if trudeau continues down this road of scandal after scandal. u.k. immigration officials are facing questions after it was revealed that they used a bible quote to reject an asylum seeker from iran. i am extremely concerned that
9:22 pm
the government department could determine the future of another human being based on such a profound misunderstanding of the texts and practices of faith communities i've seen a lot over the years but even i was genuinely shocked to read this unbelievably offensive diatribe being used to justify refusal of asylum it's not the role of the home office to play theologica it is very hard to if the person is selling the truth and you need to think about what the person's motivations are but to go as far as to dig out specific verses to try and justify a claim seems extremely bizarre i have never seen anything quite like this one the asylum seeker who has not been identified far the claim in twenty sixteen and eighty said he had converted from islam to christianity because it's a peaceful religion but immigration officials used quotes from the bible in a bid to disprove his claim in the vertical chapter twenty six god states you will
9:23 pm
pursue your enemies and they will fall by the sword before you the book of revelation is filled with imagery of revenge destruction death and violence these examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion home of his they were say's they were jackson last it was a one off not in line with general policies adding that it will work on more training for start off with spoke with the chairman of an immigration consultancy firm son wally he thinks that the home office is looking for excuses to turn down refugees. it is surprising that the home office should behave that way but you know unfortunately in some respects it's not surprising because they are quite unreasonable around help for. a looking for excuses to turn down asylum cases even cases which many people would consider to be quite genuine so you know the unfortunate there we are the home office. are quite inventive in
9:24 pm
a way and can come up with you know whole range of reasons to refuse asylum you know which can be completely unjustified you know unfortunately governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are helpful and so on for sure that's what's happening so perhaps it's not just the home office officials fault was also the government's for for encouraging officials to be nasty and helpful. thanks for choosing ossie international this we're back in just over thirty minutes with the latest headlines think about. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were unemployed. there wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation the things were going to get better.
9:25 pm
there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo down engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to no on chomsky one set of rules for the rich officer said. that's what happens when you put her into the. narrow sector of will switch rule is dedicated to increasing power for chills just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy
9:26 pm
confrontation let it be an arms race is often scary dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. of the tense situation in venezuela is still all over the news the problem in venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented. but that socialism has been faithfully implemented for inside venezuela things were different we're going to announce sanctions against petroleum's to venezuela associate. in the school of a son of the moment to. get out of some sort of bill that would assume the people of the moment the focus of the who story isn't new makes him cold in henry kissinger to tell him that it would not be tolerated in latin america and old terms
9:27 pm
of economic and social system could take hold and therefore the policy would be to make the chilean economy scream so wants to make the economy of venezuela scream. whatever the. number.
9:28 pm
oh power to the people. believe them look forward to the people. who look at. the little good day when you step out of the stores you must realize who you are fighting oh no oh i get hundred oh great fears oh oh pressure. you know no front. oh. great. aren't you the. only people we have the right you guns we remain just so that people understand you know the small window of what's out there in the world. but you're not going to focus and walk it's the most ubiquitous gun out there most police departments use
9:29 pm
it but whatever gun you want to learn how to use doors open will teach whatever you want. to tell my teachers you go get paid to follow our international laws you will be carrying five when you learn because you won't get paid a minute well let's drop the paycheck you think r.c.l. are you going to squeeze your hand then and make sure your finger stays off the trigger or both into guns or disposition and then make sure you set your hand and glove both so it's one of those open and express this part of the weather and that will go waiting here for just like you do with it with if you go straight now you want to clip the gun firmness with a good hand shift no more and that's all right so just to from mention. my name is taylor from alma and i will accept a director and sounder yes fairly which is all that works with young adults who've
9:30 pm
dropped out of schools and are trying to find. high school so they come to us because they want to finish their education age sixteen to twenty one which is the age that we work with young people are deciding what they want to be doing and they're deciding how to if they want to change if they are if they want to be like their parents not like their neighbors not like some of the they come from very rough communities and this is a chance what this is a time when if they a lot of them are making decisions about who they're going to be as adults if you're living in poverty and everyone around you is living in poverty it's hard to understand why you should get up in the morning go to school every day try to find a job and then go to that job every day and do things that are not necessarily fun or interesting and this is not about the students or about the parents even but there's a lot of.
