capital this is r t thanks for joining us our top story the greek prime minister is set to start talks to form a temporary governing coalition after narrowly surviving a crucial confidence vote in parliament but george papandreou is far from secure following a week of intense criticism after announcing and then that withdrawing a referendum on the e.u. bailout conditions for is in athens for us. it was a week where we thought everything it could have changed and yet we've wakened this morning at the end of the week see that everything remains the same at least for the time being we saw a prime minister passenger and his government narrowly managing to survive that confidence mission in parliament yesterday one hundred fifty three votes for one hundred forty five against it was very very close but then it was always going to be it's been a week of dramatic decisions i just want to show you the front page of one of the great newspapers here the headline saying the politicians play with fire and that's really very much the sense that you get from a lot of the people here and it's not just the people it's the politicians as well
this was the message that was sent to the year is a need is this week and it was one of uncertainty because we began the week of course with the announcement from prime minister passenger a about the possibility of a referendum on they see bell out plans now we were in parliament last night to listen to his address to the m.p.'s to try to save his political career he did hint that he might be willing now to step down from the pace are still a very realistic possibility he said he didn't care at this point whether or not he was reelected he's going to be meeting with the president of the republic to discuss his kools for the new coalition government but a lot of confusion surrounding just what this coalition is going to look like because the heads of the main opposition party rejected the coups for a coalition so we're going to have to wait and see now whether jay's going to be able to pull off forming some kind of unity government without them or whether they're now going to have to be included into another possibility
a lot of people here are talking about is having a will still resign and then someone from his same party could step up into that spot now what was interesting last night was that the last person to address the m.p.'s was the finance minister in venice well us here a lot of people saying that is to him that perhaps he could be the next one to start finish that route. about mr stander they gang need that next tranche before they run out of cash i know that was really one of the big things and the focus of a lot of the talks yesterday was that these calls the snap elections really a lot of the politicians felt that if elected a cop in jail himself that if elections are going ahead that by the time they finish the country with the bank what they really are trying to ram three anything that needs to be done to get this final bailout chunks of course this was the focus of the year is a need is the meeting of the g. twenty over the last couple of days with allies on greece the focus is also turning
now to italy if you see a country like italy start to get the same way as greece and really a lot of people feeling that that's game aver amongst the greek people here certainly as feeling of disappointment at a time when they really needed to show unity and solidarity and we really haven't seen that in fact if anything people are saying that they seen from climate prime minister that happen jay is a very uncertain unpredictable leader all speculation that greece will have to exit the euro zone is growing along with the country's debt levels but greek economy fucking says if our friends leaves the impact will be felt across the region. mr suttles and mrs merkel said. if you're ever and exultant no to the agreement of brussels that last week we will interrupt this to be an old euro zone and in fact the rule with us on this is a non-critical threat because there is absolutely no way legally to do that because of it and secondly financially economically if any member of that unit so evenly
bill 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 think it does and as long as the eurozone remains in the state of denial the euro will be history before too long and when it crumbles then the rest of the global economy is going to be seriously significantly negatively affected. police in the us are intensifying the crackdown on occupy wall street protesters across the country scuffles broke out in washington when police moved in to arrest activists there officer shot protesters to the ground while making arrests three people were detained and earlier a peaceful protest the sunderbans violence in the california city of oakland which
also left another army veteran badly injured the second a such incident in as many weeks at least one hundred arrests were made new york mayor michael bloomberg said the oakland style violence won't be repeated in his city of protesters are worried that that means police could shut down their camps as but you know port explains. 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 demonstrators under the pretext of crime new york city mayor michael bloomberg is now accusing these activists a million danger in 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 that they try to police minor infractions but when it comes to very serious crime or violence these activists say they do take reports to the police some media outlets have also learned that it is actually new york city police officers some at least that have encouraged criminals and people to come down to zuccotti park in an effort to stir up some trouble the n.y.p.d. denied those accusations he 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. safe here and i feel safe here well i think that you know the mayor is discussing the times that aren't haven't been reported what are those times 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 author cornell 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 and your auntie trying to come up with a rationalization which is not a convincing reason do you think there's anything criminal about you know dangerous about this encampment that anything i think every section of new york city has a day then. what it is they have a human community every every human community had something still supporting oh my god yes one hundred twenty was it 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 marina r.t. . police in washington decided not to charge a driver who round his car into a crowd of protesters. was at the scene and has posting her comments on the twitter and she says the incident left three protesters injured theory among the crowd and one of the latest comments she says the police were questioned arrested demonstrators not the driver but she's also a film footage of the middle of rest which is available through her twitter feed again. have a live for yourself. in a few minutes r.t. returns to your task when it comes to well how much is too much. if people make more than a million dollars and they have that in their bank account. or a marlin down in general or

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 should yes i want too much money so i'm not going to answer. those ten million too much too much for it to merge one when the limit when millions enough to have would say if people make more than a million dollars and they have bet on their bank account should they be forced to give back a moral or a moral and out 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 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 and 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. now more than five hundred days in isolation all to test mankind's medal for a mission to mars russia's ambitious simulative round trip to the red planet has concluded testing how a crew my cope on a long space flight it was all done without leaving moscow all artes that are all over has been following the mission and hearing reaction from the volunteers themselves. after five hundred twenty days of russian history proud we are proud
