says the european financial system is to blame for the current turmoil. it's fundamentally unfair look at the problem of the whole. of the eurozone economy it's one of the financial architecture you've got to go back to this flawed financial architecture would stall of the currency union without a fiscal union we were all told one ball was the same as another whether it be italian dog or a german born. to the rules of the games have been have been changed in the bank has been forced to take in effect being punished for the wrong thing the response is completely the wrong way around the problem is fundamentally one of national sovereignty is trading at very distressed levels because these countries are all perceived to be insolvent it's not just greece it'll move on to portugal italy spain and maybe ultimately france and germany so you have to first deal with the problem of national sovereignty and the way you do that is by creating
12:10 am
a mechanism whereby all the bonds of money good and you can only do that by involving the european central bank once you deal with the. problem you won't have the since you have these distressed bonds and therefore you won't be needing the substantial haircuts and you won't need these substantial banking recapitalization the banking recapitalization in any case will create a huge debt deflation spiral because all they will want to raise money at these prices and so will try to shed assets and if they do it all once it will create an even bigger economic disaster. and crisis plan is effective or not for the austerity hit greek people any help has to be a long way off. you ways to survive in hard times as artie's sarah ferguson. say that time is money for a country where cash is now in short supply kindy is taking on a whole different value than quick change services sometimes they give lessons for

free but they take you for free also somebody else is. just one of the growing number of service looking alternatives that would provide. people in greece another way to cope with the tough economic conditions services can include anything from language classes to babysitting all home cooked meals huge huge everything we do without money like looking after people are making things by ourselves for a country in crisis building social unity can predicts cimi hard crisis is a terrible thing it creates fear it divides people from public sector workers to from private sector workers to divide richer workers to poor workers immigrant workers from home workers and that's a terrible thing. the party networks have been a great way of bringing together large groups of people the populist slogan here in greece now is no one's alone in the crisis organizations are arranging swap shops
12:12 am
to exchange clothes one town increases even started saying bharti currency we still have the memory of. agricultural society in greece where people used to do things together like they would do the olive tree of my family this week and then next week will be olive trees of your family next week of the other neighbor so they would exchange services and the like that mickey gives me and her friend alexander he's also a member of the time bank and listen one of the three services she provides and in exchange alexander helps out with the gardening time is repaid it's an amazing way. of receiving finally by giving to the other. as many greeks struggle with wage cuts tax increases in with unemployment in the country now cripplingly high there's been huge interest in the time banks and bars and networks this places in aladdin's cave of arts and materials there's no wonder
12:13 am
really that this idea of swapping gets in services has proven so popular it's the ring solidarity time any knowledge situation extremely uncertain. was these barter networks won't solve greece's financial problems they do provide a massive amount of support the participants it's not a response to you cannot make crisis in the sense that it's going to overturn. but it's getting support from the comforts of both like to. terrible economic policies that are being posed by the troika it's giving people support to feel that they can do something with the tough economic times leaving many greeks feeling worthless there is real value in projects like the time bank and with the greek government drowning in debt these creative solutions are offering any support but

encouragement to the people here which at a time of deep recession proving priceless commodities so i see athens. the next day and his co-host stacey herbert look closely at the way greeks are printing their anger at their plight. is greece a failed state and i want to answer that from right granny in this image here you see right granny what i think she's saying no greece is not a failed state it's an occupied state because they're not asking this question about iceland are they now now because iceland stood up to the bankers whereas greece is still be subjugated by the tyranny of the bankers and this granny here who you see throwing rocks the police she's a good emblem for. store for them and the politicians agree says the things heat up in greece hopefully the banks in greece will completely collapse and this will be

the only saving grace for greek sorry. the friendly of colonel gadhafi is preparing to sue nato for the strike on his convoy and it to his violent death of rounds of d.c. fighters a prominent lawyer here knight says actions were clearly aimed at overthrowing the colonel and not protecting civilians. even with gadhafi gone the country's future looks far from secure from tripoli and he said no way since this report. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover are in libya their number one fear warehouses box will hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through made so i made two allies in
12:16 am
the region which these weapons have been fighting libya and also libya is quite a world country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in his possession and those light weapons are becoming a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security we try to control the bends and we check if there is somebody who has worked with him if he has supporters a shooting like this we are not. checkpoints have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national trend this in committee to return their arms the question now what if they don't and what does that mean up for parts gadhafi of libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only word thing that you
12:17 am
will make some mechanism how to give the weapons could we see something very different i asked this head commander what the plan is to disarm the population and . i swear i don't know if you. look. at the u.s. embassy. and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we are showing this. these are the weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as many firearms. do you know how many weapons there are in the area i think it's like after we've been steadily yeah i think everybody have a way some think the flood of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in a vacuum after gadhafi impulse to revolt chaos as groups fight out vicious battles
12:18 am
from power. what you have now in libya is schools or armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect for made to actually live or they've opportunistically used maple to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is a intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions were overthrown with the gadhafi regime with many libyans not yet ready to say a farewell to arms the m.t.c. which could only be good daphne with nato help is now asking the alliance to continue its mission a vivid indication of just how unstable a country is and he's now a r t tripoli but a columnist and correspondent for the asia times thinks the outlook for the country's bleak and sees comparisons between what's happened inserts with events in
