the self declared autonomy zone in seattle is where an occupation protest by black lives matter campaigners very much continuing they moved in after police moved out of their precinct building in the city's capitol hill crowds are building camps and stocking up and supply suggesting they're in it for the long haul activists dark books and ski walked our teeth through it. when was the last time they used and 2 cities at once to my right is the city of seattle typically dreary monday afternoon . after the capitol hill autonomous so it's now becoming known as chat but what exactly are the goals of this community what exactly is trying to be achieved here. let's go check it out. currently standing outside of the police department's east precinct which has been
7:05 am
abandoned now after a series of protests that devolved into riots the seattle police department decided to be prudent to actually leave the station and so this is become the kind of epicenter for for chad is the capitol hill autonomous zone this absolutely beautiful mural of the recent black lives that have been lost in these protests so i'm currently walking down the north part of pike street right now and see on the ground we have a sports car that's been put up i think a lot of people working on this all week. trying to create a beautiful little space they have here this is the change right here small really story a lot of people are looking for a president to see what the changes over to be going to do you think this is about police brutality or is this more about systemic racism it exists never couple do you think the goal of the chances of what's happening down here is the goal is the people this is this is the look around the road wallace no this is the.
7:06 am
congress that everybody here or part. to bring everybody together i feel like what's going on here is like definitely different playing on the floor some down at cal anderson park right now which has become sort of a living center for the capitol hill a town in the sun you can see in the distance. quite a few tents and people have been setting up and and kind of creating slowly over the last couple days living community. going way way down think about it feels like we're not being listened to. and that's why it's important that the noise has to be made to your guns or kind is that it's. oh well so are you worried about the police coming up in here and trying to bust us out trying to move this thing out it really side of the community garden that's been established here you can see that people are really coming together here
7:07 am
establishing an actual permanent garden in the ground i think they're mostly trying to grow food and hopefully the goal of this becoming an actual sustainable community we want to consumerism because it's just feeding into the system even more so explain what you doing here you know what's the closest people come. freddie is going to look at the people of color and people that are in need everything is free there's been some disagreement about what the name of this this area and the community should be. for a while it was being referred to as the capitol hill autonomy own or chaz but now they've changed the name to the capitol hill organized protest or chop the reasoning behind this is that calling this area and a ton in the stone. could invite more violence from the federal government or from the police and i think it's very obvious town here that nobody wants more violence
7:08 am
. people are going to come here. and like protesting our protest we need some sort of protection. and whether that be guns or whether that be our voices we need that the people down here they are not. politicians they're not leaders they are nurses they're teachers they're restaurant workers they are the unheard but they're not writing they are making music they are making art they are feeding the homeless they're doing wonderful special things. but if the people of the world refuse to listen to the messages that are being spoken down here and they're going to miss out on something very important and very special. zakk reasons he coming to you from capitol hill seattle thank you for listening. that one view of what's
7:09 am
happening there are very all in the growing view as well will president trump he's made his feelings clear about the handling of the autonomous zone blaming local leaders for the takeover. of a governor that doesn't do a damn thing about it and you have a mayor that doesn't know she's alive she's talking about it's going to be a love fest this summer you know if they don't do the job i'll do the job and i've already spoken to the attorney general about it but if they don't do the job we will do that. about 10 different things any one of which will solve the problem quickly well this video has been circulating online too showing a protester apparently handing out assault rifles to minors that is very much against the law in washington state a seattle activist told kevin owen earlier that from what he has seen so far the protests are mostly peaceful. the largely quiet what you see looks pretty quiet around somebody filming the shoulder but you see any trouble 1. so i think
7:10 am
we talk about you know more violence or i think it sort of out of touch with what artists are see on the ground have come to understand for the last 2 weeks the looting and violence started from the heart and they were violent with flash bangs and. you know sound cannons oftentimes so this is the most peaceful like. an opposing view from conservative talk radio host of perkins who say the campaigners in the occupied zone should expect a tough response if they keep it up. there's just a variety of love to pity on the level almost an insult to ordinary americans being exercised and displayed by these and chief of people as they try to pretend that having taken over downtown seattle it is now better run than i was before we see recently they changed their name from autonomous zone to occupied something or other because they're sort of. special independent status as
7:11 am
a nation that they were so eager to grasp in the 1st week the reason they're doing this is they've realized that donald trump can put up razor wire around their compound and install border crossing stations and revoke the citizenship of all the people in an autonomous zone and then begin to deal with them as the international independent country they claim to be anyone that escapes from the autonomous zone will be deported but there are all kinds of things that are well within common international law that the president could do. or the 9th and american troops stationed in germany are to be president maybe order after accusing berlin of being delinquent in its payments to the nato security alliance suggesting it ought to spend more on defense. but the only countries that hasn't agreed to pay what they're supposed to pay is germany so i said until they pay we're removing our soldiers a number of our soldiers by about half the people with money when it comes to
7:12 am
well as far as he say's it not paying its way when it comes to nato the us president saying he's ready to remove all of the u.s. troops that are currently stationed in germany now the figure at the donald trump forward is around 52000 u.s. troops that's quite a bit high than the official figures we have how many people all stationed. what we suggest is included in there is defense department civilian contractors anyway he was. to see that number could go down 225000 the reason is well donald trump's nose is being put out of joint by angle of merkel food over 2 key issues one on trade with the us president thinks germany is tress the united states very badly and the other one is when it comes to energy where germany has been buying up quite a bit of its energy from russia is germany paying russia billions of dollars for
7:13 am
energy and then we're supposed to protect germany for america how does that work it doesn't work it is well worth pointing out that even at the height of the cold war west germany as it was david was buying energy from the u.s.s.r. was it was then as well this probably has a lot more to do with donald trump wanting to hawk us l. and g. liquid natural gas to the european market the issue there though is the l.n.g. is a lot more expensive than russian national natural gas that could be piped directly from russia into germany as is done through the north stream pipeline when it comes to this announcement over troop withdrawals though it's shrouded in confusion heiko must the german foreign minister said this it will berlin not being briefed to what washington intended to do i would see us german relations are difficult as you see that the decision has not been 100 percent coordinated with the united states
7:14 am
government it is not surprising that it has not been coordinated with the us either or following the announcement by donald trump the german ambassador to the united states. well correct the us president over the role of those u.s. troops that are stationed here in germany that they're there as part of the nato alliance the transatlantic alliance and said they provide the us with an ability to project power well far beyond their borders into play areas like africa into a. there is like east asia as well well when it comes to what's going to happen to these troops we still don't know what they said confusion surrounding the whole announcement how being talk of some of these troops being relocated to poland we're going to have to wait to find out exactly what happens when we get a little bit more clarity coming from washington. moving the program on no sooner
7:15 am
does france lift its ban on protests because a covert 19 health workers head back out onto the streets to remind the government about its pledge to help medical staff and support hospitals live to paris and our correspondent there charlotte dubin. they've spent months working flat are talking the pandemic. it appears they're saying the promises need to be honored that were made to them. that's right they have been hailed as the heroes in white coats by none less than president might call himself the cause of it 9000 crisis at 8 o'clock up and down the country almost every night under lockdown people went to the windows buccaneers to clap and to cheer for the health workers thanking them for their hard work and now with the help workers say here outside the ministry of health to make sure that the government keeps the promises that are
7:16 am
being made throughout this crisis this is she's day of anger protest they've also been these things about the protest be held every week for the last few weeks because the health workers have been saying for a moment given that there are problems within their health service in fact all the way back to last year there was a massive protest of work is saying that this was a system that was about to collapse it was about to fall off a cliff edge because they didn't have enough staff they were working too hard they weren't paid enough. also because they said they just wasn't enough money within the system in general so just take a look around me get a sense of just how many people have come here outside the health ministry to make sure the government here is that price they owe to mending those things still more start moving money move equipment pool hospitals and they saying that the fundamental rule we review which is currently underway and is due to be announced
7:17 am
in the next few weeks in july by the government of france needs to come quick and fast many people are questioning why it is taking so long to review a system that they have said for such a long time was having problems i mean many say you know during this crisis the last few weeks the government has announced plans for the otium appeal service it's also announced plans for the aeronautics service some 15000000000 euros to be plunged into that to help that ailing system so they want to know why it's taken so long and why that money just cold be invested in the health service now the government might say well we're reviewing this enough the whole point of having this review is that when we are nurses it will be comprehensive we know that edward felipe the prime minister has said throughout the crisis health workers deserve to be paid more money and again in his address to the nation on sunday monday night and back on president back on himself reasserted thought that they would be
7:18 am
a real valuation of the pay you know health work is something that many people a welcoming here but already the notion of that's definitely going to take place because so far all these promises have come there has been little in the way of detail we know how important help with this so because of the current pandemic and how hard that they've been working but also many people have said you know the fact that the government is going to recognize health care workers in the past t.j. this year instead of helping military parade it will be a parade of health workers what they saying is let's not start revealing. let's put money into our system let's create more jobs unpaid doctors nurses technical staff porters the money they just a. busy lunchtime scene is there in the french copula charlotte talks us through the life in. my head 2nd wave coronavirus fears in the united states clusters of new infections are being reported as people ditch.

7:25 am
rapidly since the pandemic because the u.s. registered a total of over $2100000.00 cases professor william schaffner from the vanderbilt university school of medicine says there are simple reasons. it's coming back. to things happen almost at the same time we started to open up and these demonstrations occur now that things are opening up we are seeing more cases again and that's because people at least in the united states many of them are not wearing their masks they are not observing 6 foot distancing and they're going to large gatherings where people come together and that's a wonderful place for the cold and virus to be transmitted some people call it a 2nd wave that's fine with me because we see an increase in cases whatever you name it we're seeing more cases and we know why it's happening and we are better
7:26 am
equipped now but still it would not take much for us 'd to end it so many patients that we would have a great deal of difficulty providing them good care and death rates would go up i'm sure i'm kind of not sure whether our response is ever will be that strong as they are for example in china or south korea. let's focus on all aspects of what is going on stateside the governor of new york is threatening to reinstate shutdowns if district leaders do not enforce crewel of virus regulations under cuomo ses there have been 25000 complaints against businesses violating the reopening plan reporting its implications as well are to america's children shove it. the rotary opening hitting a bit of a snag over the weekend hundreds of people seen crowding along the streets of manhattan violating social distancing guidelines and not wearing face coverings
7:27 am
this is not rocket science and this extent if you have large gatherings of people who are not socially distance who are not wearing masks you will have an increased spreading the virus this state receiving 25000 complaints the governor singling out manhattan and the hamptons as problem areas and demanded local officials to do their job and crackdown on violators enforce the law you have large gatherings that are in violation of the law. this will most probably lead to a spread of the virus do your job and in force. if you do not and this continues we would have no shortcuts but to take state action mayor bill de blasio firing back saying that imprisoning people isn't the answer this as police brutality and racial injustice protests continue
