people. is considered by many to be the best place of democracy but increased now the whitening gap between the aims of the people and the government is preaching explained. we are a mix of people that have not political dollars and we are all together to say that we cannot be on the vice president we cannot hold. the measures taken on the measures that they take for us without us and we want to take out a large bug demonstrations held in the central square now on a daily basis with some of the protests turning violent protests to say the suffocating take ask nothing compared to the a stage the measures that they fail strangling their economy the people are being refused very right to judge what policies are going to be implemented upon them and of course the greek government is an accomplice to this of popular sovereignty
4:06 am
i mean we're not we're not anymore in the proper sense a sovereign country when the i.m.f. can dictate policy when the european when the and the european union and the argument of the so-called troika can come and say listen these are these are the measures you're going to implement you are going to implement them whether you like it or not we can say you know we were facing a very peculiar form of dictatorship by the european union the european central bank and the i.m.f. finance chiefs a desperate not to see the first year raising suffering default and they're rising concerns about the crisis that could trigger throughout europe i think very chance of a domino effect if. the full and this is their problem and this is the reason why the europeans are helping greece but in fact we are hearing greece because they don't want just. because they want
4:07 am
to pay for a very shortage of british. for the sixteen percent of the greek what full sun employees western economic conditions here in greece the year is saying dream it seems it's a. one person who are people worse off as were before over. there were uprising or there will be a lot of violence in the streets the people have said that when they're turning out into the streets and then millions and the government continues to push ahead with the prepays measures will then they deign to have democracy anymore the government is trying to grab the people refuse to be governed in this way every day that disconnect becomes more and more dangerous bizzare peaceful pair above the reef tops and not really a world away from what's been happening on the streets recently the question a lot of people have been asking is just when will greece reach boiling point lenny
4:08 am
when he was on the streets of athens to witness the violence will know that it's already past that point the question a lot of people are now asking is really how much further does this guy. was on the streets of athens when violent protests hit the capital read all about her experiences in what's been a golfing greece and her blog you can find it's on our website i thought a dot com. greece is seeking twelve billion euro from the e.u. and the international monetary fund but european parliament member david campbell bannerman believes abandoning the euro is the only way the nation can survive. the question now is are we throwing good money after bad money. how many billions can you throw at this you know the tolerance of the people for carts for extra taxes as we see it in greece there's real trouble there were there is trouble in spain and ireland particularly i think it's in major trouble the euro and i have been saying
4:09 am
for some time i do believe it will collapse either implausible totally and probably quite shortly now but to be honest i think you leave your is a political prism for for countries such as greece and spain and they need to be liberated from that prison recreate their own currencies have devaluation make their exports cheaper make it easier for tourists to visit their countries and they'll get back on their feet i think they should go back to the drachma i think they need to get out the euro it is a prison for them and to recreate the drachma i know there are no plans at present to do that but of course they can't sort of plan to be until you are actually fails i think that is the salvation for greece and that's the way it really should go but obviously that's a matter for the greek people. so they had this hostage to conflict as number of civilian casualties to rise in their b.s. if you read government is not simply unable to withdraw from the campaign.

4:14 am
first was hitler's hatred of communism bolshevism but underneath the real truth about this war was race hatred i believe that if it was just the science or the technical side. germany could very well have want to either a nine hundred forty one on nine hundred forty two but it with love of the motherland it was this extraordinary determination to carry on fighting that the germans underestimated and. you can see the full interview with dr michael johns in ten minutes ahead l.t. . u.s. is tightening financial sanctions on the libyan government some members of congress call for a one year extension of america's military role in the country meanwhile the intervention has been hit by continuing criticism over a number of civilian deaths historian loans davidson says the u.s.
