Today's program begins with reports on the European Union's new targets for greenhouse gas emissions and programs to stem human-provoked climate change; troubled trade talks between the EU and Britain ahead of Brexit, and the missed deadline for the WTO to get major countries and blocs to stop subsidizing their fishing industry as 90 percent of the world's fish stocks are overfished or depleted. That's followed by a report on the unilateral decision by US President Donald Trump to "proclaim" Morocco's sovereignty over Western Sahara, a decision which the EU and the UN reject as countervening international law and Security Council resolutions. Also, EU budget compromises, anti-government demonstrations in Poland, evictions in occupied East Jerusalem and the retrial of a Basque politician.
