petrol bombs in athens marking that latest show of. e.u. and forced cuts germany says it wants small control of a national budget. as the international envoy to syria warns the conflict could set the whole middle east a blaze clashes break out across the border with lebanon. and in libya before. colonel gadhafi under attack again as x. rebels launch an attack on the bani walid leaving at least eleven people dead.
twenty four global news live from moscow this is on t.v. with me rule received scenes of violence returned to the streets of athens where police have resorted to tear gas to disperse the austerity protesters thousands of greeks the voice their anger over a new round of cuts being demanded by the country's lenders in exchange for another bailout payment this coincides with a general strike that has seen tens of thousands of people will know the job for the second time this month why we're joining me now is someone who took part in today's protest. the university of the a.g.m. thank you for coming on the program today a pleasure to see you just hearing right now reports of a sixty six year old man having died during today's protests apparently suffered a heart attack just a how severe is the situation the greeks continue to find themselves in. well where facing another. wave of demonstrating cuts in wages social
protection pensions we are facing new tax hikes who are facing a social disaster in well concerns are living conditions that can explain away today with headsets such massive demonstrations in athens and only where greece that's where the research so much tension in the streets today and i think we're going to see much much more of it this inserted thirteen point five billion euros of cuts have had direct impact on the on everyday lives if you are in less less money for wages less money for pensions less money. coverage i think will have already reached their limits and then they cannot stand it's with any credit to yourself. or you talk about these people reaching their limit as we all know protests to become a very common side and i think i g g g think they can bring any change to how the
crisis is being handled. well i am sure this is a this is a problem that the political the political class currently ignores symes that come from society and the same goes from the troika and especially if you're going to present this in the european union but they're just building out the explosive material for next social experience and maybe. simply by being passed through parliament if it has no legitimacy in society and i think in the end in the end tracing the sense of such an intense social crisis in the end they will have to chance where's either way as we're just going to see such a crisis after sense of crisis it's an explosion of themselves explosion and doesn't know anything and it doesn't do end in sight when you talk about you know what's needed is a change in course certainly there are many that are saying that the politicians or the euro crowds don't want to see
a change of course on veg what's let's talk about what you mentioned a few minutes ago about how the crisis is affecting so many sectors all of society where you are all the families in greece being affected also recent unemployment figures show over fifty percent of young people out of work how is this generation handling it perhaps they should just look at it. i used to generation. we have a generation was no future we had fifty millions more than fifty percent actually unemployment in the us we have twenty thousand twenty five percent or fifteen unemployment rates it's almost certain event in the next months winter it's official unemployment levels of over thirty percent cuts for thirty five percent thirty five percent this is a very matter republic kind of levels of unemployment these are 1930's great depression and some unemployment and this is i specially for four years they take
the hit mr blair will and that is raising we're already seeing. must mean grayson especially of educated use yank or young educated in the universe to diplomats elders younger searchers young scientists i live in that contre seeking employment . as you say a lost generation a lost generation those are those younger people who are looking abroad now to take their educations abroad ultimately the end of the day of course that's going to hit the home economy in the worst of ways let's talk about briefly if i may as we all know i'm going to merkel the german chancellor was recently in greece greeted by burning nazi fry eggs and swastikas and how much anger is directed personally do you think there's less of anger directed against german police is that the policies of the german government and of course until america has a prime minister i mean that's that is that's that's this is also this sense of anger or this i'm not just the german occupation but this meant to say that you
know of course today's germany is a very different country but people in greece feel that they are seeing see the aggressive policies from the past of germany of the from the pads of german government and that can explain the anger and that you can see in the streets. are definitely out as a sort of from the university of the thank you for coming on r.t. today a pleasure. but it has been action against austerity across the world as part of a growing movement called global noise but in europe with the calls to end the cuts the loudest e.u. leaders are gathering for another anti crisis somebody in brussels head of the meeting german chancellor angela merkel called for the e.u. to be given powers to veto national budgets research i drove through says you know summit will help solve the crisis until it tackles the root of it all. one thing
we've learned over the past couple of years is that when european leaders say something about this grace is they usually mean the exact opposite. end of the crisis is inside probably means that spain and greece are slipping into depression greece by next year will have a contract to the economy of the contract at roughly twenty percent that unemployment stands at twenty five percent that you have regions in spain which are demanding secession that you have actually new fascist forces on the rise in greece the. move that we haven't seen since the 1930's so i think really what's happening here is that this president she's been out of control things are getting worse and the summit that we have today in brussels is absolutely is themselves the. problem because it is completely fails to address any of the structural problems which include most importantly the embrace between the financial sector which is completely insolvent and a series of states which are completely over. and a protest to continue across the atlantic as well and. that's where the occupy los
angeles movement refuses to be silenced a year after it was first reported back just a bit later in the program. the international peace envoy to syria is warning the conflict is now a threat to the entire region one of the first signs came in lebanon when armed men apparently used machine guns to shoot into syria sparking fresh border clashes are reporting in the region artie's arena. presidents have been reporting fire overnight coming straight from the syria lebanon border you have to understand that their supporters really close to this village right here syria in fact is right behind me a group of several identified men have opened fire from lebanese side towards syria and the syrian army has responded of course the situation in syria continues to be highly unstable despite the efforts by the international community to broker some sort of ceasefire between syrian government forces and the opposition groups and
the situation is being intensified by the fact that the various fighting groups in syria continue to receive shipments of arms coming in from across the border not with just turkey which was reported earlier but also with lebanon now the details of how those arms and up in syria in the hands of extremists groups here is the report from artie's enough. training for war getting ready for battle and possibly their deaths these young recruits are preparing for what their instructors called a campaign to rid syria of tyranny. some of these student to be fighters haven't even held a gun until now. this is the first time i use weapons there was no need for them before the revolution now we carry weapons to get rid of assad. weapons have yet to topple the government of president bashar al assad but they're flowing into the country with ease it's
a trend that has some officials worried. provide arms to either side. for the majority and the risk of unintended consequences porous borders with its neighbors make the flow of arms almost impossible to stop and lebanon's town of is one of the main gate. behind me is the way to one of the illegal border crossings between lebanon and syria weapons fighters and supplies go in to syria while refugees fleeing the violence come out. by no means is this safe or easy journey frequent shelling as well as a large minefield on the syrian side of the border crossings like being a deadly gamble a gamble that lebanese sympathizers of syria's opposition are more than willing to make. this is five thousand dollars and assist thirteen hundred eighteen hundred and two thousand in tripoli r.t. spoke to this arms dealer whose business was booming. people come or contact me
every day we have a revolution next door for sure we are with them will help them topple assad told they do it. the weapons may be easy to come by the harder part is understanding exactly where they go a classified report uncovered in a new york times reveals that many of the arms sent to syrian rebels are ending up in the hands of hardline islamic jihad one of the leaders of the f.s.a. said yeah we admit that we infiltrated by jihadi jihad these are coming. from all over the muslim world but we don't know exactly who they are back in syria both in the training camps and in the battlefield rebels talk of high hopes for a bright future. i hope that there will be free elections that the syrian people will be able to choose that they want and that we will win back our rights freedom of expression and political freedom exactly what that freedom looks like may depend on who's getting the guns. you see caffein of r t lebanon.
and yet more advanced weapons have made their way to syrian rebels causing concern that some could end up in the hands of islamist extremists video footage that has suffered online appears to show fighters in the city of aleppo using portable anti aircraft guns moscow has once again warned against sending illegal arms to syria saying it may come at a high price. but. it's not a good idea to put out a fire with. we have the example of other countries in north africa and the middle east i will see this again stop supporting the arab spring it will not end well after the arab spring there will be a very hard arab summer and you could win or lose are turning our attention out of libya at least eleven people have been killed scores wounded after militias linked to the defense ministry shelled bani walid a former stronghold of course of the late colonel gadhafi and the country remains
close to chaos following the western backed rebellion last year that toppled the nation's longtime dictator and libyan a political activist. says the nation is heading towards further disarray have em in largely abandoned by foreign powers. division not only via the net you book. the militias no thank you very well you know which is you know highly populated area and just yesterday he. also used chemical weapons think that it was. a form quote i made with the people inside the city v.c. to keep these militias are. now going through in control of libya i'm going to concede in libya using. all those who means. a position to me you know is not really covering. the situation in libya because they don't want
to set this example to say what we succeeded in libya so we succeed in syria. but i just see. my point of view. this is the will be back with more stores offer a short break but do bear in mind you can always go to our website for more stories are right now including the job of discontent egyptian schoolgirls are forced into having wanted a hair cuts for not wearing the traditional headscarf. plus twitter moves into unknown territory by censoring an account for the time by request of a government blocking a neo nazi group all those details that all see dot com. homeland security now has robot tuners seriously robot fish the drones in the sky spying on

our gee. thanks for joining us here on r.t. today i'm rule research show the world update shortly for now the e.u. has denied being behind the banning of iranian channels saying the decision was made by the satellite companies that carried them but the media providers insist they were ordered to take more than a dozen iranian stations off the by the european commission the blockade comes on top of the increasing number of e.u. sanctions against tehran targeting its financial trade energy and transport sectors the aim is to make iran shut down its controversial nuclear program but critics say they are counterproductive independent of filmmaker and media analyst danny schechter believes iranian voices in europe are being sidelined to prevent alternative use. i find it very troubling that television channels have been removed from the air suppressing the arends ability to tell its side of
the story iran is under attack not only with oil sanctions but financial sanctions there's a whole campaign underway to discredit its proposals in the negotiations that are coming up on the nuclear issue even before iran gets to make those proposals kind of a preemptive strike and now this just a few days after the european union received the nobel peace prize one of its first acts seems to have been. to suppress freedom of the press and freedom of speech that is not very encouraging clearly it was political you know it taking us one step closer to war the british did this first through their off common regulator removing press t.v. from the air in england and now the e.u. is followed through with a similar ban. right into the r.t. world cup that we go starting in yemen where at least five people have reportedly been killed in the capital of yemen after a shell hit a weapons depos setting off
a series of lawsuits came shortly after seven al qaeda suspects died in the latest u.s. drone attack in the country south yemen has been torn by an arrest since two thousand and eleven the country did pick a new president at the beginning of this year but he's been unable to control military forces partly controlled by his predecessors relatives. the f.b.i. has arrested a man who was allegedly planning to blow up the federal reserve building in new york the twenty one year old of bangladeshi national was detained is he apparently trying to trick or what he thought were explosives stored in a car officials say the public was never at risk because the bomb dealers were actually f.b.i. undercover agents. while you can watch artie's a mix and stacy attacking the federal reserve for running a circus with his financial policies of the kaiser report a bit later today nine thousand one hundred g m t. go
bubble is a well known gag by bill but the clue is that. these are the schools. economy that these chairmen attend they go to the ringling brothers and barnum valley clown school where they learn how to walk around a floppy shoes where funny beards and you know pretend as if they have mastery over policies that they clearly don't and they spritz each other with seltzer bottle that you see that's their monetary policy they sell to bottles and they go i'll here's your quantitative easing. you know and they do this to each other and they say see or all wet and wet means liquidity and the quantity is good we're making the market so it's goldman sachs and we're adding liquidity says j.p. morgan not you're just spitting each other what else are bottles and frick and clowns. my scars are throughout the day here on out see now as protests so it's in europe the american
occupy movement is having to evolve to stay afloat off the police crackdowns force them from city square as activists are now focusing on ways to soften the impact of the economic crisis. linda reports on one group helping citizens save their homes from the threat of foreclosure. was i was i. was. more than a year after it kicked off its movement in los angeles occupy l.a. is alive and well but in much smaller numbers my. god the tents which once dominated the landscape of downtown are gone but it popped up in backyards of struggling homeowners i would keep a woman has done for me is kept me in my home for thirty four days yet none this family was swept up in the mortgage crisis and is now facing eviction occupiers have set up barricades around the house now for now and this vowing to defend their home while the family battles with bank of america the show has
a meaning of people power the law enforcement is not on our side as well so if you have if you have people power and you have community support. you should you should reach out to them you should reach out to them and get a get together from the lawn in front of l.a. city hall to this foreclosed home in the san fernando valley the face of occupy and so then california has greatly transformed in the past year but the spirit of resistance remains strong among those who say they're still fighting for the ninety nine percent this is a comic war like that's what drives me to be here is not just about any one house. with. occupy l.a. started in a festive manner and was unique in how protesters had a cozy relationship with police. god however local politicians grew tired of the demonstration and showed they were willing to use a massive police response to shut down the peaceful movement the military style raid
on occupy a lazing can drove away protesters but radicalized others who are determined more than never to fight repressive forces when you have that kind of systematic institutionalized abuse of p. . expressing their first amendment right it doesn't shut it down it fuels it sam slovik is an independent journalist who has been documenting occupy l.a. throughout he observed how the movement's inclusiveness allowed elements in which cause conflict well the pile is broken up into several community entities it still celebrates small victories this again is the current evolution this is the edge of it this is a foreclosure resistance action and it's supported by occupy l.a. as the movement evolves the unknown this family is determined to keep very american dream from no way you should and i would to happen and you can always show resistance. when you. know in los angeles ramon the
lindo r t. let's join artie's a caterpillar now for the letters a business update katie you were telling us earlier that if it was me after was to buy up t. n.k.p. pay that would take the total debt to more than that of the entire so you know i you know my brain can't even begin to compute these numbers i know it's a bit mind boggling isn't it but we all talking sixty billion dollars in total and that's with what this says would cost a well the company already and it would also remain russia's energy major will step becoming the biggest oil producer in the world and asked if the company acquires over the says in the russian press is over. the pain artie's nicole explains to us all the latest update on the twists and turns on this extremely complicated affair . rosen is playing it's called close to its chest senior legal sachin is in new
london and sources suggest he's trying to broker a deal to create the world's biggest publicly traded oil. that he seemed to be to buy at this stage here in the twenty eight billion dollars impasse. share k.b.p.s. courses rough good logic. it's fifty percent by b.p. and fifty percent by a consortium of four russian tycoon but those talking to me so i've been told the rules yeah and so it's just that they've signed a memorandum of understanding so their share in th paid b.p. is well this will likely happen in the future date of rosneft is no fool to have the fifty billion dollars in cash we would need on hand to complete both sides of the acquisition of what. would it be a position does go through in full it will create the world's largest publicly traded oil it also shoot arrows we have to the front rank of the world's oil
