2:02 pm
a very very very ugly racist that's why i created the right wing not be ruined he told me look you know the fact is that it would be. rather unexpectedly the million mom march here in london has paid the fees they have me from the houses of parliament where they were protesting and they won't write down all of them out here in london if you look behind him they're all walking down. well the media must pray to sit here in london have ended up outside buckingham palace oh yes there's them even making it across the gate we seeing prices break has an eye for tween police and protesters and some of the groups then saying often
2:03 pm

2:04 pm
a movement against the government in corporation is taking advantage of the people . who are. so we're standing next to the white house what do you want president obama to hear you want president obama to hear that five years after the financial crisis the banks being bailed out we're still suffering people are still struggling they're drowning in debt we live in a country that's fundamentally unfair we no longer have the rule of law from the n.s.a. to edward snowden to chelsea manning all over the world people are speaking out whistleblowers are speaking out regular people are speaking out and saying enough is enough we want justice we want to know and people ask if the decentralized masked movement like this can achieve anything other than just making noise well last year they were instrumental in informing people about this but legislation that would provide legal protection to internet giants that funnel private information of their users two thousand and agencies and now in light of edward snowden's revelations they demand a drastic overhaul of the n.s.a.
2:05 pm
. going to counter what we put this radio to get our correspondents feeding where the marches all took place that was like a green is where it all happened people rolling out almost every continent in europe france italy portugal crowds came into the streets were masks elsewhere in canada mexico brazil same thing happened also crowds out in the streets in japan australia and new zealand too with a guard force must become a symbol of the protest movement courses and top selling item on mine so much money can save money here martin lives into its significance. be hard pressed to not find this mask at a recent protest but ironically every time the mask is purchased time warner gets a cut yes because of time turners move even if the company also trademark the mask but despite this disturbing contradiction the mask still serves a very noble purpose it's helped to give activists immunity and identity to
2:06 pm
anonymity. next the spying scandal between germany and britain is gathering force warned london that using its embassy roof as a surveillance post is illegal under international law the allegations of u.k. snooping come on the heels of calls for another revelation america's unprecedented spying on the german chancellor he's a recent scot the latest. now we know of course that it wasn't just the u.s. who was eavesdropping on the germans revealed that britain probably was to this information comes from the edward snowden leaks from n.s.a. documents from aerial photographs and of course from past form and it suggests that the u.k. has its own nest of intercepting equipment on the roof of its own embassy which of course is in the heart of
2:07 pm
a not very far from the german parliament not at all far from merkel's office you see pictures of it it's pretty obvious that it's there it's a sort of white box. and this equipment intercept mobile phone calls and it's well known that angela merkel conducts a lot of government business through mobile phone calls and also through text messages can also incept wife by data and long just longer distance communications right across the german capital so it's incredibly intrusive syncros it really awkward for the british red faces all around the british ambassador has been summoned to the german foreign minister to try to explain himself in german and u.s. diplomatic relations really has an extraordinary since this since this was revealed and we can expect the same for the u.k. if the ambassador isn't able to provide now to protect the nation and the first test of those relations particularly between the u.s. and germany is coming up next week the space be trade negotiations between the u.s.
2:08 pm
and the european union understandably those in now in jeopardy or a smith for european parliament member paul murphy figs that although there will be consequences for london in the end business interests will prevail over public demands for just. germany and britain are both in the european union together they are meant to be part of a common political project and so it's more difficult for them to express the open and tiger doesn't that doesn't exist it does but at the same time i think it is going to have consequences or it will deepen the divide between the. britain as represented by the government within germany. there is kind of star of difference there with britain more representing an atlanticist view of the european union obviously being part of the so-called five i guess together with the u.s. you know u.s. led was counted a strain in new zealand and britain whereby they spy on others but supposedly agree not to spy on each other i think actually what would happen is that there's been
2:09 pm
attempts there'd be an attempt by the governments to so madi express and give voice to be felt by people but then to try and put a lid on it because if you look at what's happening between the you with the us i mean there is words of criticism but then both sides want to get on for example with the free trade agreement between the two in the us because they see it as being in the interests of big business on both sides. so when the u.k. apparently no rush to give burley announces over the latest spying allegations peter all of went out to find out what the germans themselves that is said. the fallout from the revelations that britain may have had a spy nest on the roof of its embassy in berlin are being felt right across germany here in rural northern bavaria the local newspaper carries the headline now even the british as spying on us it also has a picture of the locations of the british and american embassies and where the various listening posts were supposed to be now the people who we speak to here say
2:10 pm
this really isn't what friends do to one another. it's shocking we've been friends with britain for a long time outside of our knowledge to show i think it's shameful what they've done and they don't care if this isn't right now try to do a disgusting but nothing will get done. that you think it's not ok but what can we do against this type of operation the response from britain that they don't question when it comes to matters of national security isn't doing anything to ease the concerns of people all across germany who are left wondering just how much of their personal and private data is being listened to or looked at by their allies in the united kingdom all of which could lead to some potentially interesting talks next time david cameron meets with anglo merkel but could end up having some role that toxic implications for relations between two of europe's major powers. still ahead on r t an investigation sheds light on military talk shit in the u.s.
2:11 pm
an independent before it shows while the defense department or the cia masterminded the abusive treatment it was the doctors and medical stuff they were hands on plus a nationwide strike in greece shuts down public services and transport for twenty four hours protesters go all out to get some sturdy program whipped up by the company's international lenders examine the latest two. but not before we've talked about this terrorist attacks across syria have left at least sixteen people dead according to local media in the north of the country they shelled a power plant that disrupted electricity supplies to the strategic city of aleppo artie's paula sleep has got the latest. at least eight people have been killed and many more injured in the capital city of damascus as a result of an explosion that happened at the entrance to the railway building among those injured are women children and construction workers there is no group that as of yet has come forward to claim responsibility for this attack but the

government is calling it the work of terrorists which does refer to opposition and rebel fighters who have been backing it out with the syrian president bashar assad at the same time there's been a second incident of violence in the southern city of suede and now there we are hearing that a suicide bomber drove a car into a building belonging to the syrian military intelligence and then in another incident in hama province there we're hearing that a gang has attacked a military outpost again no word there of casualties but this has been a bloody few hours of violence in syria and the attacks come in the wake of no movement on the diplomatic front there had been hope that geneva two would bring together the syrian government and the opposition before the end of the year but the latest word now is that on november the twenty fifth the russian as well as the american delegates under the umbrella of the united nations arab league envoy
2:13 pm
lakhdar brahimi will meet and only even perhaps while they agree on a date by when to have this next round of negotiations the problem is the sticking points which first and foremost is the division within the opposition and they also are insisting that the syrian president bashar assad is removed before they're prepared to come to talks now this comes on the back of several weeks of foreign inspectors working inside syria and up until now the wood from these inspectors has always been positive. well as paul is saying that despite the progress in syria's chemical disarmament hailed by the international chemical watchdog on the world there is still skepticism coming from america tonight u.s. officials say the assad government may be trying to hold on to some of its toxic arsenal but joyed coleman author and journalist and writing stance of the syrian conflict spoke to me earlier he says such statements he thinks are just acts of desperation on washington's part i think the west is very very desperate in syria right now they've been bogged down there now for two years with foreign mercenaries
2:14 pm
and foreign terrorist groups they've been basically sending over the border from turkey and from lebanon and from iraq and neighboring countries so they are not really interested in disarming syria this is not a question of this are in syria this is basically a smokescreen what they're really trying to do is cover up for their own crimes the crimes of the groups that they've been sending into syria now since two thousand and eleven these are these are terrible fascist groups extremists are funded by saudi arabia and qatar and israel and what they're trying to do is to divert attention from the terrible atrocities being committed by these groups and blame the assad government again but there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of the use of chemical weapons against the syrian population by the syrian government coming up in the program on a much lighter note just ahead the space mission to the olympic torch and the day greased and still we're talking about that story just a couple of minutes the top is going to assess of course.
