FULL SHOW: Russia lifts ban on Telegram app
Rallies are taking place across the United States Friday in honor of Juneteenth. This comes as protests against systemic violence have raged for more than three weeks. RT America’s Faran Fronczak reports from Washington DC while RT America’s Trinity Chavez has the story from New York City. Why are so many people in the US just now learning about Juneteenth? Johanna Fernandez, a history professor at Baruch College and author of “The Young Lords: A Radical History,” explains.

But even with the ban in place, the app was still widely used, raising questions about both the reasoning and the timing behind the latest decision. RT America’s Rachel Blevins has the details.
