this is alt international thanks for joining us. going to start in the united kingdom where a christian doctor who was sacked after refusing to use female pronouns when discussing a transgender woman has lost his legal fight against his former employer he says that they discriminated against his religious beliefs but an employment tribunal has ruled that his stance was quote incompatible with human dignity and more details added stashed. well you're probably familiar with pronouns such as he she and them and respecting them is especially important for the transgender community gender nonconforming and binary people however fail to get it right could now cost you your job at least that's the case for one dr he himself was sacked he faced dismissal because he failed to use these pronouns due to his own personal religious beliefs and in

a controversial court statement it read to his christian values are in direct contradiction with the fundamental rights of others and lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment incompatible with human dignity and conflict with the fundamental rights of others in so far as those beliefs form part of his why different youth he is why different also does not satisfy the requirement of being worthy of respect in a democratic society so what's the case well dr david margaret as a christian man who worked for the n.h.s. for 26 years now he was subsequently sacked after a conversation with his boss who asked him how would you respond if a 6 foot tall man came into your office and asked to be called mrs or she well dr makary refused and said he would simply not be able to conform to those requests and he was subsequently sacked from his position now the department for work and pensions argues that dr david margaret spheres are in direct breach of the equality
2:03 pm
act of 2010 on top of all of that the firm that hired the man is also being sued for religious beliefs but the fact remains that the tribunals did rule of course that his believes could cause offense and in fact many people in the trans community and trans activists say that all of this has psychological ram of ramifications is tantamount to abuse not to mention of course that medical health care professionals should be treating people and not judging people in their opinion well anyway dr david ross perth is now saying he will appeal the decision. earlier i spoke to the ben at the center of the story dr david mack earth you outlined the precedent he says this ruling now sets i was taken off the shop floor and i was i so interrogated all the judges that i had heard. about were believed by my manager of people of the people of the shop floor of the national health service the very bit about their beliefs this is really really the precedents that have
2:04 pm
been set for my case and that's that's why we're really quite shocked at the core prescriptive very quickly the 1st one is that you're not allowed not to leave the transgender movement macit and the 2nd one is component each of the oppressed and that believe that what made us male and female and then 6 out of pronouns of it's not allowable ball is that core christian beliefs or christianity is not compatible with modern society or human dignity these are very big questions each one of them is huge it's a huge blow. and i would never refuse to treat any patient that whatever they are they come from the question here is whether i can be forced to do something and so something which goes deep that gets my. 4 police officers have been killed and several others wounded after a man wielding a knife attacked a police headquarters in paris the motives behind that attack is still unclear on

president of france as well as the prime minister felipe have all come here to find out exactly what happened there are also being many tributes paid to those officers who lost their lives. paris's morning it's on the south to noon after this appalling attack on the police headquarters the toll is heavy several policemen have lost their lives in my name and that of presents my 1st thoughts go to the families of the victims and their relatives the motive for this attack is not yet clear but one police union describe this as being a moment of madness and it is of course just 24 hours since we saw those huge police protests here in france across the country with police officers talking about the stresses that they face in their work the psychological stress is the sheer amount of work they're having to do and also the violence they face as they trying to carry out their jobs we spoke to some officers at that march on wednesday
2:07 pm
to get them to explain those precious to us the best usually 3 today the police have no money yes salaries keep killing status and our pension are being attacked officers are tired with the yellow vast mean that there is a lot of work sacrificing their family life and we are expressing a deep depression in our profession. i'm here to defend our working conditions the threat to our special pensions status the lack of resources across the board. we are the police officers from france not just riot police but also misses all the unions we've all gathered to express our discontent with the administration the silence about the wave of police suicides this year we are short of staff short of money we cannot do our job and here to tell the administration that that stress police officers are also coming in is due to the volume of work that they've been doing paris of course france of course has been at the high alert for terror since

2:09 pm
a totally wrong made it up or the person giving the information to the worst of lho was dishonest and this country has to find out who that person was because that person is a spy in my opinion so president traveling doesn't realize. how dangerous his statements are when he says he wants to expose he's the whistle blower is and those who may have given whistleblower that information. democrats came to protect this particular whistleblower they've been less so about others who feel uncomfortable truths in the past in the movement takes a closer look. we are now told that in this dark age of tyranny one heroic individual has spoken up like a voice crying out in the wilderness we don't know his name or his occupation but we know that he is good i think the whistleblower did the right thing i think he followed the law every step of the way the inspector general of the intelligence community found this whistleblower complaint both credible and urgent i want to say
2:10 pm
thank you also to the whistleblower for having the courage of the bravery to come forward on behalf of the nation now not only must this gallant hero be held in the highest level of reverence but he must also be protected from any attack on him would be an attack on the american way of life from everything we know and we don't know much this is a experienced person who saw things that bothered him that's what the whole whistle ball blower statue is for and it is to protect their identity and i understand he's going to testify and we'll let the process unfold now do you remember how hillary clinton apparently wanted to kill julian assad with a drone well let's not get lost in details but let's go over some recent whistleblowers in u.s. history.
2:11 pm

2:12 pm
think mr snowden was a patriot he is a law breaker he violated american law he violated his duties that he assumed when he took the job that he had let's look at snowden here you know some might try to should say that oh he's a great human rights crusader he is not at all like the great human rights crusaders in the past might argue that this case is different because this whistleblower didn't run to the press but simply followed standard procedure but the record seems to show that a lot of cases have whistleblowers who do follow this procedure so why jail time for some of them but turns out the law does not actually protect them from retaliation they can be fired or prosecuted so are all future whistleblowers doomed well not quite secure backers carefully protecting whistleblowers who see wrongdoing of any kind in our government is essential so if you're a whistleblower in america take a step back look over what you have and ask yourself could this information benefit
2:13 pm
anyone powerful in america if not your official complaint will probably be ignored and if you don't shut up after that the consequences could be severe the current whistle blowers case is very different from others. the others were blowing the whistle on the system so these were real real abuses what crimes and abuses of our 4th amendment. now this new whistleblower we need to put in quotes what was she reporting of course there are double standards there are standards for those who want to put pursue their political aims using this particular whistleblower in quotes and there are other rules for people who really oppose the system and its abuses one of the whistleblowers just mentioned there in caleb support he said would snowden he's reacted on twitter to calls to protect those who spilled the beans noting the case of ex n.s.a.
2:14 pm
on the list daniel hale has been prosecuted for lifting the lid on u.s. drone warfare programs meanwhile an article in new york times suggests that the u.s. house intelligence committee chief might have colluded with the whistleblower according to the report the anonymous cia agent spoke to adam schiff stuff before filing his complaint is out on trump reacted to that just before you and president needed to walked out here that the whistleblower met with a staff member of adam schiff prior i love that question to be filed it shows that schiff is a fraud i think it's a scandal that he knew before i go a step further i think he probably helped write it. and this is not the only control to see the u.s. house intelligence committee chief has got himself important isn't easily put trying to explain. if there was an award for the star inches tator of president trump certainly this man would make it to the list of nominees no need to remind why all right just watch this for a bit president was essentially trying to coerce
2:15 pm
a foreign leader to help us presidential campaign there seems to be no floor below which this president can drop serious a level of misconduct about his fundamental betrayal and obviously with that in mind it's a piece of cake to guess what this guy's most cherished dream is impeachment for the maggot man it may be that we undertaken a piece nonetheless that compels us to travel down the road towards impeachment well if you try and properly imagine yourself and mr schiff's shoes you would probably say oh yeah what he's up to is totally legit because mr trump is on a mission to dig as much dirt as possible on his most dangerous democrat political opponent and for the president all means are good even if it's done through a phone conversation with ukraine's president who mr trump asked to once again hit the trail of joe biden and so adam schiff was like it is illegal improper
2:16 pm
a violation of oath a violation of his duty to defend our elections our constitution for the president to merely ask for foreign interference in our election well it's time to remind you of a different phone conversation from 27 thing between now not donald trump this time adam schiff and supposedly the speaker of the ukrainian parliament the nature of the compromise well there were pictures of naked. ok so you have recordings of both so check. where they're discussing the compromising material on mr trump absolutely on that meeting told flynn so all those compromising materials will never leave. will can so lol russian saying so. well obviously we would. welcome a chance to get copies of those recordings opes i forgot to mention something
2:17 pm
really important that was a prank although with scenes mr chef was so hungry for the tram compromise that he totally fell for it schiff was pretty serious he wrote all of what we said on the paper remembered all the detail surely when you're looking for something to get crump out of there you're good to cross any lines nothing improper or probe worthy by the way speaking of dealing with the russians in some shape or form as we know anyone who gets themselves involved in that could be compromise or a spider on for the rest of their lives mr schiff once spoke to us r t r t made in russia get it one of those members of congress a leading the effort is adam schiff from california he joined me earlier he read thank you should someone put him under a federal probe for him that he or his assistants were probably talking to a few russians while the interview was being arranged oh that was long before
2:18 pm
donald trump showed up in the white house politics should be fine then shift is certainly a very tribes also accused him of being shifty and shifty i think is a much more apt description of a state he wants to bring down donald trump he tried to do it with russia gate i mean the ship was really one of the key figures in russia and so now here he is suddenly you know from russia gate is moved on to ukraine get a chance to lead which i think is reasonably based that the origin of true russia is to be found in ukraine and he was asking israel in investigating this and in this case ukraine gate is even lindsey are there and. think that. will go down that ship. and speaking of the trump he's been given the green light to impose 7 and

the time has come to talk about the global concert of development models interests cultures and traditions where the sounding of each instrument is vital irreplaceable and valuable and so that music would be played without falsity for it to sound with harmony it is important to take into consideration options of every participant of international life. the iraqi government has put an indefinite curfew on the company in baghdad amid reports of more than a dozen deaths and hundreds of injuries as a wave of violent protests has swept the country.

2:27 pm
least it doesn't look like it will but what he will have to do is to provide some. believable assurance that they going to make a change and it's very hard to imagine anything that the current government can do that will pacify the protesters them so i think ultimately it may well come down to at least a new election or perhaps a stepping down. violence sadness and fantasy these are just some of the things you might expect to see when you visit an art gallery renowned take britain museum as deemed a warning necessary for a new exhibition of 19th century drawings by william blake.
