you've messed things up for long enough you don't really listening the only way we can actually get your attention is by civil disobedience rebellion is without question britain's fastest growing religion. welcome to the week we hear on our t.v. where we bring you the latest headline news on the top stories from the past week. turkey says it's taken control of a key border town as its troops advance deeper into syria kurdish forces that claim the retreat was tactical ground invasion which it calls an anti terror operation was launched on wednesday turkey wants to create a buffer zone in syria free of kurdish fighters and then wants to settle the millions of syrian refugees there who are currently in turkey the u.n. says over 130000 civilians have fled the turkish advance warning that this could rise 240-0000. i have urged the international community to step in.
america and other countries should protect us they are committing sin here our children women is there really no mercy but rather clearly this is an occupation we are a peaceful people we are talking about this placement and effectively genocide of innocents kurdish civilians innocent communities within that region the kurds have always been on the defensive but now they may they must the fend themselves and their families which means that unfortunately they may not be able to police the camps that hold isis and the isis prisoners it is now going to cause a big vacuum and a significant problem in terms of security the offensive has sparked rallies around the world people in the u.s. france germany and other countries have joined the pro kurdish protest operation has also been condemned by the international community germany france and others have gone so far as to halt arms exports to turkey
a present and one has threatened to send refugees in turkey to the e.u. if it continues to condemn and press and. we have 3600000 syrian refugees in our country waiting to go back home hey european union come to your senses i'll say it again at the moment of our operation you cannot define it as an invasion our job is easy we can open the doors and 3600000 refugees we will send them back to you. the offensive fall as president i will trumps decision to withdraw u.s. troops from the region he defended the move saying the kurds did not help the u.s. during world war 2. we have no soldiers at the area. we've been talking to turkey for 3 years they've been wanting to do this for many years as you know they've been fighting each other for centuries now the kurds are fighting for their land just so you understand they didn't help us in the 2nd world war they didn't help us with
normandy as an example that move was condemned both within the u.s. and abroad with republicans and democrats saying the president is betraying the kurds artie's interest on the looks back now at the u.s. relations with the group over the decades. it seemed impossible sounded like crazy talk and yet it happened a moment of unity between republicans and democrats as they both condemned america's disloyalty to its kurdish allies the person who united states is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven this is that crazy. which allies in syria or elsewhere in the middle east will fully trust the word of president trump in the future the thing all of these politicians pundits and channels seem to forget though is that the kurds i used to waking up to a groundhog day of american betrayal the only difference is that it's been going on
for more than half a century and hasn't been funny at all. in the fifty's and early sixty's the cia pushed the kurds to revolt against baghdad as part of their efforts to overthrow their leader a bill karim kassim eventually he was toppled by but the new ruler wasn't a big fan of ideal of kurdish independence so he bombed them into submission bombed with napalm kindly provided by the united states. the kurds seem to either have a short memory or a forgiving heart because in the 70s the u.s. was back on their good side iraq and iran were involved in a border dispute and washington was correctly supplying the minority with weapons once again pitching them against baghdad but then iraq and iran kissed and made up
and all of a sudden the kurds were on their own being blown to pieces as they are supposed transatlantic guardian angel was watching idly even the americans at the time admitted that keeping their involvement under wraps. this was simply no excuse this policy was not imparted to our clients who were encouraged to continue fighting even in the context of covert action ours was a cynical enterprise hoovered action should not be confused with missionary work. fast forward to the eighty's and for the us it was the golden decade of big metallic umma dawn and m.t.v. for the kurds it was well just another decade of more u.s. betrayal in the late eighty's saddam hussein unleashed his chemical arsenal against them an atrocity looking bound to draw the wrath of the world's policeman but it was still a long time before saddam was to turn from friend to full so american wrath
didn't go further than statements like these we want to maintain good political and economic relations with iraq but the issue of chemical weapons gets in the way of that. in 2003 it looked like the u.s. was finally ready to make amends for its decades of forsaking the kurds helping them was among the pretexts for the invasion of iraq but then even in washington many took such goals with a pinch of salt the kurds have every reason to believe or think that they will be betrayed again by the united states or so often in the past contract the spectacle of our inviting turks in to this war earlier trying to bribe them into it could not have been reassuring to the kurds even under the turks before trial against betraying the kurds that is your point yeah surely your point isn't that because we betrayed them in the past we should betray the list not that we should just we will
we will not will not yes they did in 2007 the us let turkey have its way with the kurdish rebels in iraq as ankara launched a lethal bombing raid against them this is of course nowhere near. you fullest by 2019 america had left because 4 dead a few more times both in iraq and syria. american traditions go beyond partisan lines america loves having turkey on thanksgiving going to the pumpkin patch for halloween and launching fireworks on the 4th of july screwing the kurds over is nothing but a decades long political tradition for america and they will abide by it be the democrat or republican. ecuador is in the grip of anti austerity protests despite president clinton merinos military backed her few that was imposed on saturday earlier that day people attacked government buildings and a t.v.
station for the week has passed since people 1st flooded the streets to oppose government cuts on fuel subsidies r.t. spanish correspondent nicholas donovan reports from quito. this is what they're doing look these are real goods real bullets against people of the house who protect themselves because wooden sticks to drop the explosives on indigenous people who sleep in contra they were asleep that's what a card was. rings
of thing. right now in an absolute chaos there is thousands and thousands of protesters let's try and get closer to the front line just the just a few things and why it's the presidential palace it's heaven the god part military and police forces these protests to plan to get there. in minutes ago while i was doing the live shot when our spanish version we don't hit by. right right right and that's what we think see you know. the protesters are using their wills stones bricks just like the. lease
so far and that was to gas with sound bombs it's a situation of extreme tension in the streets. just to give you an idea. right for those who may cross suspended any activity in the city center they say it's not safe for doctors and for ambulances instead we've got crews all volunteers that just take in the dozens and dozens of wouldn't think to bus stops and train them there it's it's actually pretty shocking and to flutey measures that were implemented by the government included scrapping the subsidies for diesel. gasoline. and that has triggered these protests the monday we had the students then on tuesday we had been bijan as communities the day they will move together they've joined together in this massive tens of thousands of people who are taking over the streets of quito president clinton moreno well he's going to see what he's
going to say it is a message. absolute riposte so he's got that meant those ministers and say it's measures that deal with the i.m.f. $4300000000.00. struggling with that thought the people who say that the government is going to say but that it's big business instead of the people and that's why would these people are here protesting this is a national strike and. take x. which smoke it's practically on bearable a tragic day in fact we're told history when fuel subsidies were cut prices were poorly was 120 percent leaving to knock on inflation on other products the decision came as part of a deal made by the president with the international monetary fund in march in exchange for another loan to the country where no has so far refused to scrap the cuts but on saturday said he would take a 2nd look at bob. before that right now blamed the unrest on former president
rafael correa and venezuela nicolas maduro mr currier told r.t. that right now has no one else to blame but himself. it's a difficult time for my home and this shows the politics of merino in his government he's already been in power for 2 and a half years and he still blames korea for everything economic crisis for security for his political faults and to say that these mass protests are my fault is just crazy. knowing there isn't any merino is not interested in democracy for him the most important thing is to control power control the ecuadorian public so he create projects that can damage the majority would be beneficial for his goals. protesters in hong kong are defying a new ban on wearing face masks. this saturday saw a fire bomb thrown at the gate of
a metro station amid wider clashes with police hong kong's chief executive kerri lamb earlier said it was too early to say whether the anti mask law had failed adding that it usually takes time for new legislation to get the desired result with violence erupting sporadically in hong kong the atmosphere there is becoming ever more tense as artist oscar taylor reports hong kong has gone from being the economic power of the orient to the face of the fight for democracy but the faces of those trying to rust control from beijing's crossed a mosque and the democratic means they're using wouldn't be out of place in hollywood horror film the pudge.
the film's premise is that once a year for 12 hours only crimes are allowed mogs a fact also rate you name it you've got a freepost and that because of this small window to release all your rage the country becomes crime free for the other $364.00 days it's a small sacrifice for the wider peace and stability and in scenes in really similar to the film's opening hong kong apparently had a pudge of its own. to broadcast. to. the merchants the service is suspended for. a member urged. the sun just like always. ok it was a hoax but it was a hoax that actually wasn't that far from the reality of the chaotic mania gripping
the streets of hong kong. hong kong had a very dark night because of the extreme acts of the rioters the city's now cemetery lies that everyone is worried her even the frayed. shops looted buildings and the metro disrupted for the 1st time in over 20 years shopping centers food shops and banks closed down fearing wolf islands from the vandals a city which was renowned for its efficiency and convenience is now ma it in confusion and disorder the instability has spooked the markets and seen hong kong's retail sales suffer the biggest drop on record and while the city's 1000000 as a packing must do cases for those who can just rustle up a 1000000 euros to get a fosse truck residency abroad the options are limited but you can't go anywhere we came from mainland china and we didn't know the stations were closed so now we can do is a big problem for public transport is for everyone
a decision to open or close the station cannot be politically if it's everyone's daily life if you save its traditions it's very good for you see trees not so many people use the phrase and because. those. are 3 really efforts over the life explosive fire the entire thing anyway so i think that's kind of ridiculous now there are those who will say the film shows scenes of senseless violence while the protesters are engaged in a campaign of peaceful civil disobedience and what of course no image shows the full picture but this undercover police officer who was beaten with petrol bombs by and incensed mob the line is probably a bit more blood with the lenses of the international media zoomed in on the region there's no shortage of scenes just. like this and don't worry if it's up slow day but more than willing to lend a helping hand to spice up the show i don't think you were out.
with i. was. i was needed. was as businesses are crushed as fires battle and if people are forced to pick sides claims that it's all in the name of peace and democracy are increasingly wearing thin these protests is no longer our pro-democracy protests it is turning to reinhold the process the most the engage in violence our young people it is because for the past. decades. the home call from in the north to have a strong policy measures to ensure our. young people after they
graduated from school or university they would have high quality jobs the poor start north where organized they do not have a hierarchy to communicable still forty's to poor to start running the wrong doing whatever they like leaving the police nor toys bus tour due. to or past then. the whole situation brule necessary to eat up because external forces to come in and it is a scenario that i can anticipate the return real happened. in the short run. telecom environmentalists group extinction rebellion has been protesting across the world this week causing disruption and major cities like that how after the break.
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to press. you to go right to the press this is what about 4 30 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. the war in syria seems to be winding down with some syrians returning to their homeland but going back to a normal life now seems like a pipe dream after almost a decade of proxy war this syrian l. dooms 2 years of proceed peace.
welcome back to the weekly environmental action group extinction rebellion rally been cities across the world this week on monday it launched a 2 week protest campaign to draw attention to the problem of climate change more than 1000 activists were arrested in london demonstrators tried to shut down major locations like westminster bridge and city airports dollars for help across the globe to from north america to australia are more than 10 people were detained talking to a major intersection. now among extinction rebellions key demands are that governments declare a climate emergency and. loss of biodiversity and drastically reduce carbon emissions by 2025 their actions have divided opinion here some of the reaction
we've been hearing. extinction rebellion is without question britain's fastest growing pagan religion and the reason i refer to as a pagan religion is just as all the classic hallmarks of a group of religious fundamentalists a belief that their view is the only view that's acceptable a desire to shut down everything that does not talk to their worldview they fundamental belief that they are in charge and everybody else also go to their beck and call how do you resolve pollution the result polluted by technological advancements the technological advancements the extinction rebellion oppose what this generation seems to be saying is you've messed things up for long enough you're not really listening the only way we can actually get your attention is actually by civil disobedience in the footsteps of mahatma gandhi and martin luther king jr and malcolm x. and rosa parks and people who decided that peaceful nonviolent public protest. displays of public outrage but tamed and controlled because don't forget the
extinction rebellion and anybody who's involved in political activism or any kind of change agenda they going to use your actions and activities against you look extinction rebellion of demand effect we have returned to the stone age removal of economic progress a commitment to not grow the economy so essentially the british government for example has committed to being 0 carbon by 2050 which i think is nominally sensible you can't or shouldn't trust all words that come to our service we had our city contrast because our number has been in. every single year if i can speak directly into the camera my 11 year old son who was at home with the band hello guys and we had a debate before it came on tonight about does he want to. leave school. take a break for an often or day to go in protest he was worried about the consequences to levon he understands that the climate is suffering and that rapid change is
