ten am in moscow i matras so good to have you with us here on r t our top story more than ten thousand people have marched in nice to protest against the g twenty summit that will kick off thursday farther down the coast in cannes the crowd angered by the current financial system and reinforced by the global occupy movement demanded governments focus on people rather than corporations as r.t. daniel bushell reports this time world leaders may find it even harder to ignore the outcry. teacher and she was wrong says it wants to sell me on its picturesque mediterranean coast to reflect the importance of emerging nations in the world but this financial crisis deepens in both the u.s. and european union economists sports self interest behind nubile claim to involve more right economies is really to try to convince those right economists to put money on the table. and sustainable currency union of europe in the first place developing countries which the west quick to back civil unrest among their
population they know see those same western countries coming hold on public movements in the room. and she was like to describe double standards the primary powers within the g twenty united states germany britain france the real dominant economic and military powers they want to show a world order and a system of states that still has the ability when in fact there is instability this summit is an attempt to shine a face on what is really a failed system there's a scene of chaos not just from the side of protesters but also from the police because there's helicopters overhead at the moment you can hear police sirens also there's police really amounts of this military style operation to shut down and stop any of the protesters going where they don't want them to go one former diplomat says western leaders called continue to just block criticism this whole idea that they can simply ignore popular protests against what's happening come
back to the leaders of the g seven energy twenty summit this protein is different from summits of the poles with bill james nixey of the latest western bank to get bail dealt with public money growing numbers here worry there's something fundamentally wrong with the current setup we have basically a financial system where corporations and financial institutions are able to write themselves favorable legislation. pro quo your corporate lobbyists police roadblocks all demonstrate just getting through to the me boy town of with the g. twenty takes place but it's becoming a little harder to start world leaders hearing the voices of protest. to all see elites france. and russian president dmitry medvedev will be among the leaders taking part in the french summit r.t. caught up with his aide arkady dvorkovich out of the event in tells r.t. that it's important for leaders to have a chance to talk face to face here's a preview of that interview coming up later in the hour. the result this crane
before that it can. be called face much more difficult consequence so for financial turmoil the president and the thousand take anything from conversations are too formal for those kinds of decisions i special given the differences. in the traditions and the use. on various nations stick united states and china from conversations that will not help they need to talk to each other directly to reach some kind of compromise some global issues. greece will hold a referendum on the latest e.u. bailout deal calls by the country's prime minister have gotten unanimous support from his cabinet george park and rose announcements european leaders it also came as a shock to the greek government with some members calling for the pm to resign last
week eurozone leaders agreed to radar of the greek debt and had more loans in exchange for more austerity measures. your financial advisor our own welcome alex smith says if the greeks vote against the bailout deal it signaled the end of euro zone. this may will finally bring it to a head i think the europeans have been patching things up and patching things up and it's now getting to the crunch point and the deal that was reached last thursday was was a nothing deal really because it doesn't address the fundamental issues that there is too much in the sovereign debt in the u. and it's unsustainable in my view the best the best option for the greeks is to default of course that there is much bigger financial consequences for the for the rest of europe and for the rest of the world if that happens but if we're talking about what is in the best interest of the greek people then then then as probably the best outcome if a truly great defaults then you have to look at who actually owns the debt and
that's principally owned. by other sovereigns by the e.u. and by the banks and pension funds and the consequences of that is that it would make the financial system the banking system much less stable and the worry is of the snowball effect and how it would create the banks and then other european sovereigns and whether that would then lead to further defaults and a number of sovereign defaults at the same time on our web site r.t. dot com we're asking what you think lies behind a prime minister's surprise decision to hold a referendum on the belo deal here's how things fall right now almost forty percent think the greek here has made. there say about a third think the movie is just populism ain't it quelling protests the rest would about evenly between whether the decision is a knife in the e.u. is bad or a pop at great risk looking for a pathway to an honorable retirement. with greece already netted deep in
economic and political turmoil it seems yet another crisis could be around the corner we report from athens where the anti immigration sentiment is reaching a boiling point adding to the existing mood of austerity anger and desperation plus . the russian markets open slightly high with investors still keeping their distance from greece guess it's more in business in ten minutes. but first the u.n. nuclear watchdog says it's discovered a secret facility in northwest syria that matches the design of a uranium enrichment plant finings ivory suspicions that the syrian government's been trying to produce nuclear arms but there's no evidence that the building that resembles a textile plant has ever been in operation situations led some experts to draw comparisons with e.w.n. via allegations that led to the occupation of iraq. here we go again the main pretext for invading bombarding iraq with weapons of mass destruction well if
i was president assad i would rather worry about living here in stages in because the inspectors which into iraq three years on still on i'm told that one of the tasks was president was trying. to sense installations in iraq and that and making sure the physicians with my second thought is this is the labors of syria still hills on this lens the golan has both comes a large nuclear armory. and the with things to deliver that is over some thousands of miles this is ironic we should be talking about syria when the israeli nuclear armory has never been inspected. turning now to libya where newly inactive prime minister says protecting human rights would be the top of the government's agenda but his statement is in contrast to activists claims that n.p.c. fighters are terrorizing displaced residents of
a coastal town most loyal to gadhafi fred abrahams with human rights watch says current atrocities are being downplayed by the libyan government and some nato countries. but in some places the violence is quite bad the town we looked out in was called told and the militias from the neighboring town of misrata are terrorizing the people of to where they accuse them of having fought for khadafy and you know the problem here is that the militias are not under the control of the political authorities the civilian authorities and vats the big challenge for libya going forward is bringing the many militias under a unified civilian command the problem is that the money militias hundreds of militias sometimes from just a neighborhood have many weapons now and they say look we fought we lost comrades in this battle and now we want to have a steak a seat at the table and bringing them under control will be difficult there's
definitely a trend to say we did the right thing meaning nato governments they want to say that this was a successful operation so there is a tendency to downplay the conflicts and the tensions now but at the same time in our discussions with them of some of these governments they're taking them very seriously because they know that this will cause problems in the future they want them addressed now trying to support the more open minded and democratic minded forces within the new authorities and move libya in the right direction so there is concern and i think that the governments are nervous about this these tensions the revenge and they're trying to take steps to to quell it. as libya and the wider region undergo drastic change or he will continue examining the role of foreign intervention in the arab spring. yeah. i can. take.
we can leaks founder julian assange will learn later wednesday the verdict in his fight against extradition to sweden over allegations of sexual misconduct sondra denies claims and says they're politically motivated artie's laura smith has more from london. the main main sick truth is approaching julie enough stone says he learns hand at the high court on wednesday whether a judge will order him to be extradited to sweden to face questioning the effects of the so far the case and that's those and the swedish prosecutors that have vowed
