  1. My dear brothers and sisters, I am looking for a documentary of Press TV. If I remember it right then it's main subject is (global?) air pollution. Thank you in advance
  2. http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2017/08/25/532857/Syria-Assad-US-Saudi-Arabia In a major policy U-turn, US and Saudi diplomats have reportedly been urging the armed Syrian opposition to come to terms with President Bashar al-Assad’s role in Syria’s future as Damascus’ army irreversibly holds the upper hand on the battlefield against militant groups.
  3. Youtube had stopped Presstv from having access to their Official channel, without providing an explanation. Presstv created another channel. Now, again, without providing any relevant explanation, Youtube has restricted Presstv's second Channel Page. In response, Presstv has created their third channel. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/08/20/319607/youtube-attacks-press-tv-again/ It is time that Iran create a youtube like video sharing website. Or maybe they can simply allow mehr.ir to be translated.in English. I am sure it will get a huge response.
  4. 03April2012 1420hrs The Munich based "media authority" has announced that PressTV does not have a license to broadcast in Continental Europe. PressTV believes this was done under pressure from the German gov't. Personally, if the German gov't did, I thought a lot more of Angela Merkel than that.

  6. With famine swallowing more areas in Somalia, the country is plunging into historically tragic proportions. More children are dying of hunger every day; international assistance is painfully slow and the international community is inexcusably oblivious of the dire straits threatening the lives of millions in the African country. Among the most heart-rending stories regarding Somalia was the report that over 29,000 children under the age of five have perished over the past three months due to a lack of food and a severe drought that has 3.2 million people in its claws. The United Nations says 3.7 million people face starvation. To crown it all, the combination of drought, conflict and poverty has been conducive to the outbreak of famine. The current drought is the worst in more than half a century affecting the lives of 10,000 Somalis. Over 166,000 Somalis have fled for their lives to neighboring countries such as Kenya and Ethiopia. Kenya and the United Nations have been severely lambasted for the continued closure of a multimillion-pound refugee camp left empty in spite of the crisis which is gradually bringing the African country to its helpless knees. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is accused of evading striking a deal with Kenya to open up a camp that cost international donors $60m (£37m) to build and has been left unused and locked since last November. "To the thousands of desperate Somalis arriving every day, the sight of a fully equipped refugee camp standing empty must be the ultimate rebuke," said Daniel Bekele, Africa director at Human Rights Watch. The New York-based watchdog has demanded that the Kenyan government immediately open up the extra camp adjacent to the existing Dadaab complex of refugee camps in northern Kenya, which now shelters 440,000 people, according to a report in The Independent. The crisis is also exacerbated by piracy in the country. "Absolutely, piracy is very much a concern and not abating at all," the African Development Bank's chief economist Mthuli Ncube told the Guardian. "It hampers the delivery of food aid. Some has to be flown in, which has an impact on cost, or it has to go to ports like Mombasa, Kenya, and then be driven overland, which takes time." A new report by the African Development Bank (AfDB) reveals that piracy has long been a problem for aid efforts to Somalia as 80%-90% of food aid arrives by sea. The World Food Programme (WFP), the UN's food aid agency, reported in 2007 that the ships that could carry food aid had been cut by half because of the grave threat of the pirates in Somali waters. The UN released a report on Wednesday and revealed that cereal prices had reached records high in the Horn of Africa, exacerbating an already precarious situation for the millions of the starving population. The Food and Agriculture Organization also said that price of milk had reached a very high peak. The images of the gaunt faces and twig-like bodies of Somali kids are enough to make every human eye wet with tears and every heart bleed with pain. The US government is spending millions of dollars every day on its warmongering adventures in the region. Only in Libya, it is reportedly spending more than ten million dollars a day. Just imagine in the first four days of the US-led military strike on Libya, about 162 Tomahawk missiles were launched at Libyan targets in the Operation Odyssey Dawn which cost more than $1 million each. The F-15E fighter plane that was lost to mechanical failure cost about $30 million. According to a report published in The Washington Post, experts from the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessment released a study estimating that a limited no-fly zone such as the one established over the Libyan population areas could cost $30 million to $100 million a week. The US has spent millions of dollars on its military escapades in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya. By indulging in different military adventures, the US government keeps lurching from one quagmire to another, leaving the country in debt and financial crisis. However, apart from the costs inflicted on the American citizens, it is also exacting a toll on the whole region by creating insecurity and crisis. Isn't it time for the US government to be jolted into the bitter reality that instead of waging wars here and there in the world and playing havoc with the lives and fates of millions of people around the world and spending millions of US dollars, they could feed the starved Africans and help the global community and, say, be constructive rather than destructive? Isn't it time for the international community to perceive the truth that they need to take speedy measures before it is too late to help the desperate people threatened by starvation in Africa and elsewhere? Let us hope Somalia does not become another case of too little too late.
  7. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has strongly condemned the violent treatment of British protesters by police forces in the United Kingdom. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, President Ahmadinejad referred to British protesters as “opposition” and condemned the killing of demonstrators by the British police, IRNA reported. The true opposition in Britain is the people that are pushed to the ground and beaten on London streets and slain and yet "no one hears their voice," he added. He stated that the main issues facing the world today include discrimination, wars and the type of management in societies, and said the ongoing global problems are rooted in “misguided management.” The Iranian chief executive also said that the world has witnessed the worst management during recent centuries, noting, “The current era is even worse than the era of slavery.” President Ahmadinejad added that over 100 million people have been killed in wars over the past century, as wrong policies have created a deep income gap and millions of people are suffering absolute poverty and are on the threshold of death. The unrest in Britain began on August 6 in the north London suburb of Tottenham, after a few hundred people gathered outside a police station to protest against the fatal shooting and killing of a Black man, Mark Duggan by the police. However, violent protests erupted in major cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, and Bristol in Britain's worst rioting since the 1980s. Protest outbreaks were also reported in Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Reading, and Oxford. Turmoil is now threatening to sweep across Britain as the mayhem and looting has also spread to the central city of Birmingham, the western city of Bristol, the northwestern city of Liverpool, and south London neighborhood of Brixton. British authorities said hundreds of people had been arrested as the unrest entered a fourth night.
  8. British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has authorised the use of rubber bullets and water cannon by the Metropolitan Police to suppress the widespread protests. As the fourth night of angry protests shook the northwestern cities of Manchester and Liverpool, as well as Nottingham, Birmingham, West Bromwich, and Wolverhapton, Cameron announced “a fight back is under way” and “phoney” human rights issues cannot prevent the British government from silencing the angry protesters. Cameron lectured the Chinese authorities, in November 2010, on the importance of human rights and claimed that the British government raises the human rights issues “because the British people expect us to and because we have sincere and deeply-held concerns.” Within just months from his lecture, Cameron describes concerns about human rights “phoney” as he orders the British police to deploy 16,000 officers only in London streets authrosing them to use rubber bullets and water cannon. Britain has a bad track record on using rubber bullets against unarmed civilians which has created great concerns among human rights activists and organizations. Numerous groups, from European Parliament to Human Rights Watch, have called for a ban on rubber bullets. These bullets are supposed to be shot at lower parts of the body; however there is evidence that about 19 people have been killed in Northern Ireland mostly because of rubber bullet injuries to their heads. Moreover, the Independent Police Complaints Commission's revelation that no evidence of a handgun was found at the scene where Mark Duggan, the 29-year-old black, was shot by armed police officers was another setback in Britain's efforts to pose as a supporter of human rights. All these come as Britain tries to present itself to the international community as a human rights defender taking the lead on setting a no fly zone on Libya or pushing for sanctions against Syria to end what it calls crackdown on protesters.
  9. British Home Secretary Theresa May has threatened the use water cannons and even military force to quell widespread protests in London against power abuse by police. As the British capital witnessed the third night of spreading violence and the evident loss of police control over several parts of London, May said that officers would be allowed to use water cannons. The decision was soon backed by Former London mayor Ken Livingstone, who believes that police must be allowed to use 'the weapon' to disperse protesters. Livingstone said, “The issue of water cannon would be very useful given the level of arson we are seeing here.” The riot-control weapon that shoots a high-pressure stream of water was employed to control mass protests in Northern Ireland. May also insisted that in case the police fail to regain control of London streets, the government will consider the option of deploying military forces throughout the city. Patrick Mercer, the Tory MP and former Army officer, asked the Home Secretary to use water cannons to control the violence that has spread across the capital. “I find it strange that we are willing to use this sort of measures against the Irish yet when Englishmen step out of line and behave in this atrocious and appalling way, we are happy to mollycoddle them,” said Mercer. “If the police want cannon then they should be allowed to use them. I have used water cannon myself and I found them extremely effective,” he said. Several other figures also urged the Home Office to apply the so-called anti-riot weapon, claiming that in some cases cannon use was necessary. Met Police said in a statement that they used armoured vehicles to push back London protesters on the third night of spreading unrest in London. Commander Christine Jones, said, "We are using tactics flexibly to respond to the disorder we are still seeing in different areas of the capital. Anyone involved in criminality should be under no illusion that we will pursue you. We have been making arrests all evening and have a team working during the night examining CCTV images. We will follow up evidence in the coming days in order to bring anyone else responsible for criminal acts to justice."
