but george patton dreyer rejected the snap election saying it would be catastrophic he's faced a barrage of criticism this week after a stunning colleagues by suggesting a bailout referendum and changing his mind arty's reports from athens. the situation here in greece has been described time and again as a greek tragedy but it really remains extremely unclear just how this is going to play out now we saw prime minister jewish pathogen and his government narrowly surviving that confidence in government by just three hundred fifty three m.p.'s they say yes one hundred forty five. it was always going to be extremely close it's been a week of dramatic decisions dramatic ups and downs we began the week of calls with the cools from the prime minister for a referendum and then saw him back off the opposition not just from the year as they need us but from within his own government as well though when he addressed the m.p.'s in parliament we heard him say that he didn't care if he wasn't going to
be elected prime minister again and he also called for the formation of a new unity government but the details about how that coalition government will be formed remain extremely confused right now not least because the heads of the main opposition party hearing greece missed the simyra rejected cools for a coalition so we're going to have to wait and see now whether mr passenger is going to be able to pull off the formation of the new coalition without the support of the main opposition party whether he can maybe get two or three of the smaller parties in parliament. what we're hearing from people here is that really that seem like three options he's going to be meeting with the president of the republic to discuss this coalition now either he could try and get the main opposition party in mysticism are involved in these talks and trying to get them on side in that formation another possibility is that we could still see those early elections but
we heard mr happened today saying in his address that that would be catastrophic for the country so it seems that that looks extremely unlikely and another option would be to happen to a still resigns from his role as prime minister and another member. past party since that role now was very interesting tonight listening to the speakers was the last person to address the m.p.'s with the greek finance minister mr venezuela's a lot of people here see that as a quite a strong hint that he could possibly be next in line for that role of prime minister it's been no secret that over the years he's been a challenger to pop enjoy a poll that position say that's a possibility moving forward but a lot of uncertainty still and here amongst the greek people a feeling really of disappointment at what's been seen as further invasiveness is still very unclear just what the details of these plans for a new coalition government will be and this instability coming we asked time when the last thing that anyone here wanted was even more instability. or speculation
that greece will have to exit the euro zone is growing along with the country's debt levels but greek economists and uninspired focus seems if things leaves the impact will be felt across the region. mr suttles and mrs merkel said. if you are ever and what is outside no to the agreement of brussels that last week we will interrupt this to be an old good result and in fact the rule with us on this is a nonpolitical thread because there is absolutely no way legally to do that because it and secondly financially economically if any member of the unit so evenly build because he's thrown out the whole of the eurozone perhaps it's this is not a good this is a good as in practice which is being felt most harshly in greece because greece is that we believe of the problematic chain this inability of the eurozone to deal
with this crisis is symptomatic of its state of denial about this being a systemic crisis of the get us out and as long as the eurozone remains in the state of denial the euro will be history before too long and when he grumbled then the rest of the global economy is going to be seriously significantly negatively affected. well while greece scratches around for cash a major u.s. based financial firm has lost a whopping seven hundred million dollars the question is whether it's just sloppy bookkeeping or fraud as r.t.c. financial guru explains later. the sellers of the insurance last credit default swap take the premium as cash immediately and they're never on the hook for any liabilities because they're causing systemic failure when the system collapses and they say we can't pay out because the system collapsed well what about the money you took selling the insurance against a stomach collapse we can't find it it was junk or zine it's in the shadow banking
system where do they go it's like jackie mason is running a global system where you go i don't know what there's not going to be gold it was there one day it was you know there i go yes me you got a bagel i got a schmidt i don't know what about what i don't know what do you know what they don't know. what's causing the cause reports will be here in just over an hour's time here in our team. now peaceful protest has descended into fresh violence in the californian city of oakland as police moved in to break up and occupy a rally there at least one hundred demonstrators arrested tough police action is also the u.s. army veteran badly injured the second such incident just a week york mayor michael bloomberg said the open style balance in his city that some of the behavior of county tolerated that's left protesters fearing that
york police preparing to shut down the thames to be reports. the occupy wall street movement has cemented its presence here in zuccotti park for nearly eight weeks but now many believe that the city will try to evacuate the demonstrators under the pretext of crime. new york city mayor michael bloomberg is now accusing these activists of endangering the entire community saying they are failing to report crimes that are taking place here according to published reports the police have arrested seven people at zuccotti park on non protest related charges since early october now some crimes according to reports have been attempted rape and or rape the activists here say they try to police minor infractions but when it comes to a very serious crime or violence these activists say they do take reports to the
police some media outlets have also reported that it is actually new york city police officers some at least that have encouraged criminals and homeless people to come down to zuccotti park in an effort to stir up some trouble the n.y.p.d. has denied those accusations we did speak with a few of the hundreds of activists that are down here and here's what they had to say my experience has been that i have been safe here and i feel safe here well i think that you know the mayor is the guy i think things quick time that aren't haven't been reported what are those crimes that you think the mayor is probably gearing up to make another attempt to. turn the park simply because someone walks into the park doesn't mean that they're part of the movement a lot of these out with that even critical of us characterize anyone who is within you know a mile radius of this place as a protester and therefore reflective of our movement but as you can see anyone can come in here and that's fine you know we want to welcome people in but certainly because someone destructive doesn't mean they reflect what we're doing or that we
promote what they're doing princeton professor and activist dr cornel west who's been a huge supporter of the occupation movement was down here in zuccotti park r.t. had a chance to catch up with him to get his thoughts on what mayor bloomberg has recently said just think you're own mother your own david trying to come up with a rationalization. not a convincing reason to think there's anything criminal about dangerous about this in. new york city. what it is there were human community every human community here. still supporting. yes one hundred twenty overall though all the activists that we have spoken with today say they feel as safe today as they have felt since day one of these occupy wall street movement they say the momentum is growing bigger it's growing louder it's growing larger and they are here to stay reporting from wall street. party.

antigovernment protesters in syria you can forces have been shelling the city of homs despite agreeing to withdraw from urban areas under an arab league peace deal at least nineteen were killed and dozens wounded in the latest crackdown of doctors claiming more than one hundred twenty bodies were brought to hospitals in the past three days there's doubt over whether the arab league can end the months of bloodshed. but top commander of colombia's revolutionary armed forces has been killed for the. died during a military ground assault or wardrobe nearly five million dollars was offered for information leading to his capture the fifty three year old to cope with latin america's last remaining rebel group in two thousand and eight the death of its founder. forty four more miners have been pulled alive from

the general public has been vilifying the very rich lately so what does the public consider too much money this week let's talk about that more than a million too much money yeah if someone has more than a million should they pay more in taxes yes they absolutely said yes i want too much money so i'm not going to answer. those ten million too much too much for too much when the limit when millions enough to have i would say if people make more than a million dollars and they have that in their bank account should they be forced to give back a more of a moral and time outs in general interestingly i saw once that the to answer the question do you have enough money to curve goes like this as your wealth increases so people who don't have a lot feel that they don't have enough as they as people get wealthier a higher percentage of the think they have enough until they pass a certain point whereas as you get even wealthier you want even more so if you made
ten million dollars would you i would give some of it away it's too much money are people that don't give it away and have that much in the wrong i guess it's a personal decision i just think that if you make that much money you could share it with someone that doesn't have so much should they be forced to through taxes like they do in scandinavia maybe so because sometimes if you don't force someone to do something they're going to do it no matter how much wealth you consider to be obscene the bottom line is when it comes to money it's hard for anyone to not want just a little bit more. more than five hundred days in isolation all to test mankind's battle for a mission to mars russia's ambitious project to simulate a return trip to the red planet has concluded testing how the would cope on a long space flight one of the volunteers on the virtual project says he's not ready for a real voyage. after five hundred. twenty days of this
