a five minutes past the hour here in moscow this is our the e.u. is facing up to a new era of becoming progressively poorer and increasingly desperate that's forcing big companies to rethink their strategies and how they can sell their goods to people who have nothing to spare his test ross earlier investigates. with more than eighty million people in the e.u. would risk of poverty including twenty million children this has become an all too common sight in european cities as a debt crisis and its effects drag on from madrid to athens and even brussels twenty three year old the wrong is one of many jobless and homeless europeans when he's not out looking for a job he sits in this corner reading his favorite classics hoping to receive enough money from passers by to buy some food for himself and his dog. before the crisis i had an apartment i worked as a group leader in youth camps there hasn't been much of
7:06 am
a difference for me since then except the bread is more expensive everything is more expensive if i meet someone who gives me an opportunity and tells me ok you can work next week i'll say yes ok i'll try and if it works it works if not the nevermind. but the numbers don't paint a nice picture for people like no home and share everything is increasing and defeats almost all indicators for the shopping for a sofa is in thing everything is fine it has its property. the. beach requires no kind of kick a fence or touch the most. this means is this is a higher consequences for people to work with and big companies are taking notice take you to lever for example the company behind a slew of consumer products from shampoos to ice cream has started to look at europe from a different angle the head of its european business told the financial times
7:07 am
deutschland that poverty is returning to europe multinationals in fast moving consumer goods are seeing the state of poverty in europe as more than just a passing trend the thinking of readjusting the strategies they use here and in point was a big use in developing countries such as asia where you find packaging like this one from this asian store and what you call sachets for each piece is. cheaper than a bigger packaging and therefore easier on the pockets of consumers a practice the company has already started doing in spain and greece people have to store savings on their most basic needs. shampoo foods so that's really showing you. what the crisis really means for many struggling people in europe there's rather a disproportionate burden on individual citizens. specifically the increasing fear the rates near the on the most basic products other everyone uses in their
7:08 am
daily lives i'm sure this has a huge effect a crippling effect on people like simone a homeless woman and pensioner who only has three euros to spend each day and wait for shit i can't feel different so i try to live where i can i don't see much my doing too much a tool it's all because of the you're right many people have problems because of the crisis problems that make the e.u. is target of reducing poverty and social exclusion by at least twenty million people over the next eight years seem further out of reach. does so cilia r t brussels. felt financial inspectors are in lisbon reviewing how well the country is following tough austerity measures and evaluating the state of its spattered economy in may portugal became the third european country forced into taking a bailout of this one worth seventy eight billion euros many experts doubt the country will be ever able to repay its debts the interest rate on his ten year bond
7:09 am
is at over nine percent portuguese your m.p. or really says the ballot system is simply creating a vicious circle. our deficits targets. targets will not be achieved and for a very simple reason that the medicine that. we have given to the party is the economy is soft if you take the economy is contracting so there is much less tax collection than what we had before so mainly because of a huge crowd on tax collection the portuguese government is again. and balanced budgets which was after all the main point of having the money from the from the troika i think there is an invasion on part of mainly berlin and paris to have greece as the sole example of the medicine not working so in order to
7:10 am
achieve that it is very important to portray portable as a country and that is not that is unlike reese ireland as a country that is unlike greece and everybody else has it as countries that are and like greece so to say the problem that the greek problem then will be characterized as a problem of the greek political ethos of the greek government is certain of history or culture or whatever the recession and austerity is not working either in greece portugal or for ireland that seems to be no way out. you're watching r t thanks for joining us today still to come for you in this program that of capping the cops new york police are targeted by civil rights groups after six years of spy operations on muslims who turned out to be guilty of nothing. are ten minutes past the hour here in the russian capital the united nations secretary-general ban ki moon has arrived in terror on to take part in the summit of the nonaligned movement it's made up of countries that don't see themselves as
7:11 am
part of any global power block such as nato one hundred twenty states are represented that's around two thirds of the un's members and washington and israel have called on the international government officials and the u.n. secretary general himself to ignore the summit they say that is hindering the diplomatic and economic isolation of iran which they accuse of attempting to create nuclear weapons well it deserves a bigger conversation than what i have for you let's head over to patrick henderson a geo political analyst from the web site a u.k. call and live in london such a pleasure to see you today there certainly some talk of this gathering being an opportunity for iran in what ways patrick do you think it could be beneficial. for i remember this gives them a diplomatic stage it puts them on equal footing with other competing nations that enormously and diplomatically they're not afforded this sort of stage in new york city. the united nations is dominated by these sort of nato countries and the agenda is always a military one. you know so the barracks. were and as you say it's
7:12 am
a good opportunity for iraq to get some attention on the global stage as you mentioned they're not welcome at the u.n. i remember clearly went up with energy i'd go to the u.n. he makes his speech and then american representatives and those of israel they all stage of walkout is iran's decision to host this summit do you think a deliberate attempt to provoke the powers and lined up against it over its nuclear program. clearly from the point of view of it happening in iran now isolates israel the u.s. the u.k. france in all the sort of nato allies in terms of diplomatic strategy syria being the most obvious sore in the region should. trick patrick and i think terribly single room ok this is just as rory of moscow
7:13 am
here i'm going to carry on we're getting a bad signal but i'm going to dare my luck and ask you one more question if this signal is no good well as a catch up with you later if i can just for a moment patrick the u.n. secretary general is attending this summit in tehran although the west has basically told him not to go why why has decided to go to the summit perhaps seeing it as important in some way. well. look beyond i remember looking you. need oh we draw. on the big picture this is. i'm so terribly sorry patrick we can all get a solid connection with you here in fact you're putting a very lovely face for us right now but you're not moving so we'll have to catch up with you later patrick geo political analyst thanks for coming on r.t. today. i do apologize of either thank you for your patience now a deadly car bomb attack on a funeral procession in damascus has sparked
7:14 am
a wave of mutual accusations by both the syrian government and rebels there are still conflicting reports but it's thought as many as twenty seven people were killed now the opposition claims the government stage it to divert attention from its other alleged large scale atrocities meanwhile syrian t.v. has released a preview of an interview with president assad to be aired later today the leader says syria needs more time to win the battle against terrorists and rejects the possibility of imposing a no fly zone over the country although as artie's lucy catherine off reports much of the western media coverage is directed against the picture our side is trying to paint even if that means sanitizing their own coverage. it was another disturbing example of the many atrocities committed throughout the syrian war a truck bomb with homemade explosives headed for a checkpoint to the entrance of syria's largest city. but the men that are loading it aren't assad forces they're one of the many groups
7:15 am
fighting under the banner of the free syrian army and their captive is said to be a member of this should be a militia with very close ties to the outside government the video filmed by the new york times and turn into an on air segment by the b.b.c. captured about human rights groups called evidence of an attempted murder a potential war crime under international law video of rebels from the free syrian army trying to use a prisoner as an unwitting suicide bomber in their attacks on government forces and the cameras didn't follow the prisoner who had no idea that while being blindfolded he was actually embarking on a suicide mission he simply thought that he was being given his freedom the very next morning he was said to have a scaped after the bombs failed to detonate and the b.b.c. had aired the story on august twenty second but this glimpse into the darker side of some of the tactics now being used in the uprising never aired again the story was also pulled from the b.b.c. website the network told me that this was due to copyright issues and this very video raises the question about whether such tactics may be more widespread among
7:16 am
the opposition than what has been previously documented they have yet to draw the same level of scrutiny as the crimes committed by the government were taliban in syria is met with more whether by the government or the rebels the violence seems to be the name of the game and he further shatters the prospects for peace agreement reality for the civilians caught in this bitter war lucie county no four r.t. and moscow of the meantime american author and former university lecturer kevin barrett says it's just not surprising that the powerful can push the media into wiping out all traces of what they believe the public shouldn't see. it's pretty obvious what happened which is that the b.b.c. reported some news that higher ups in the western intelligence apparatus don't want them to report so they've forced them to take it down and that doesn't surprise me at all that's just one example of many examples of b.b.c. complicity in this military agenda you know the b.b.c. is heavily complicit in this series of wars of aggression that were triggered by
7:17 am
the events of nine eleven and it's very sad because western journalism used to be more independent and today everybody and all the big outfits located in the big in which speaking countries are putting out propaganda twenty four seven three sixty. are you watching r t live from moscow let's get back to our guest is patrick henderson a geo political analyst for the web site u.k. column if i said coming back we just had to had some technical difficulties and we've now got a more solid connection with you of course we're talking about this summit of the nonaligned movement ongoing in terror on a massive regional gathering of all of the neighborhood there of states and countries some are saying it flies in the in the face of the u.n. we're talking about the countries that are attending those that are not also that the fact that the u.n. secretary general is there banki moon he's been granted permission as he's there to visit iran's atomic facilities will that lead to any movement do you think on the issue of terror arms nuclear ambitions well it's certainly
7:18 am
a positive thing for these are general of the united nations. in attendance and also being allowed access around the country to look at some of these facilities in question so this is definitely going to shake the u.s. and security council kind of dominance a little bit but if you look at the strap line of the noun conferences lasting peace through joint global governance and this is not alien to the united nations mission as well so if nam might look like a competing organizational but i think you have the same kind of global governance globalist kind of rejoinder it's a big push behind it so who only time will tell really exactly the significance of this organization certainly only time will tell but also depends on whether or not officials that say in new york at the u.n. are willing to listen to him we all know that kofi annan recently he were design from being the u.n. and arab envoy in the conflict in syria saying that he was tired of the tit for tat
7:19 am
arguments going on between both sides so it remains to be seen whether buying came in will be taken seriously during any of this i must ask you there regarding the whole up summit of the nonaligned movement of regional guys appearing entero and right now for this summit we've got. it's from the u.s. state department fairly tough words saying that quote we frankly don't think iran is deserving of these high level delegations that are going to the summit in tehran well what do you make of that well looking beyond and look nato and its allies partners or apparently ignorant of the reality that the rest of the world now views the anglo-american empire so to speak in all its intelligence agencies like the cia except for as a cancer that has spread through the middle east and asia and is threatening the existence of the prosperity of those countries in those regions including the brics countries and emerging economies like india so you know i think it's are in similar view in the west that they really have barricaded themselves in a corner there's
7:20 am
a lot of things developing a lot of new markets and new economic partnerships being forged and either the west is going to come to the table or they're going to be left on the outside in only with the military stick to beat the rest of the world with so that's the kind of way i see this really looking right now patrick before about out of time i must ask you one more question here as we are talking about the summit has a lot a lot of movement meeting right now what kind of effect do you think could this meeting have on the stability of the volatile middle eastern region well it does give a voice to other differing opinions especially on the issue of syria i mean if this if this meeting in happened when your gury you know there would be talking about libya because it's exactly the sort of aggression but it was a nato sponsored project you know seriously different through the west is using the backdoor through proxies and funding guerrillas and using the gulf states to do
7:21 am
their dirty work to say but it's an overall pattern of instability that has really been pushed by a kind of needle colonial agenda syria doesn't want to be an outpost for a western military. expansion like bahrain for instance is it is a military are closely united states who is looking at the reorganization of the middle east in bruges but kind of the questions that we really should be asking yourself right now what's the purpose of sovereign nations in the region or leave. it to the west in the imperial aspirations of america or be independent and be prosperous together. geo political analyst from the website i call him live in london ca thank you enough for coming on r.t. it's a day. now the new york police department is under fire from civil rights groups who say they broke federal guidelines on information gathering for over six years informants in the big apple spied on muslim americans watching them pray work and
7:22 am
chat on the phone and as it is more important i reports all that peeping came to nothing. in a post nine eleven world it's no secret that the u.s. has exponentially expanded its surveillance practices in the name of national security however recent revelations indicate that local and federal officials have wasted many years and enormous amount of tax dollars and feast no consequences over targeting muslim americans according to court documents the commanding officer of the n.y.p.d. intelligence division has testified that the department's so-called muslims by program has not produced even one more terrorism investigation in the past six years now the new york city police department following the september eleventh attacks created a demographics unit this according to the sociedad press that unit mapped
7:23 am
unmonitored muslim owned businesses and also had police officials infiltrate mosques and muslim student groups throughout the city and parts of new jersey according to reports the n.y.p.d. was also eavesdropping on conversations taking place between muslim americans now many civil rights lawyers say the n.y.p.d. violated any laws and civil liberties by targeting people based on their ethnicity or their language they also argue that laws were broken because officials were trying to gather information on people that did not commit any crimes so here we are nearly eleven years following the september eleventh attacks and america's most powerful arms of law enforcement still appear to be targeting muslim americans this is of course left the f.b.i. in the n.y.p.d.
7:24 am
producing very little results but critics say it's also left u.s. citizens with very little accountability. for nine artsy. part of socrates daniel bushell the business that's good to see you die although as you know we've been talking about for example the summit on going in in terror on right now and as we all know iran is trying to deal with western imposed sanctions now we know syria is moving to dodge western sanctions how is that affecting the business aspect of us were it trade with russia or sanctions are starting to bite damascus as it will ramp up exports including crude and foods like olive oil the country's economy chief country jamil has been in more scope for talks in return syria has asked for loans and of assistance if you will its lease long term debts is another sixteen billion euro goes under the how much today and some more of loans bulls is down the credit rating of the united states will become next year if it doesn't slash its fifteen trillion dollars this is fitch ratings and emerging markets
