anti-corporate protesters in washington d.c. where vick did this week from a park of aid occupied since early october eight people were arrested when mounted police raided the encampment officer said they were simply enforcing a no camping law and activists are allowed back into the park but the demonstrators say it was a full scale invasion the occupy movement has seen some heavy handed police tactics including the recent taser shocking of a protester in d.c. kevin zeese from our economy think tank believes that the activists are smart enough not to overreact to excessive use of force by the police. who knows what's going through their head space on that you know when we i watch that video it's available online and it looks like there was no justification for it when i went to meet piers on the day to ask about it people said the only thing he was doing was taking the signs around the tents and said no camping and so that was the rationale for tasering he was dropping values not being as frightening looks like
a excessive use of force my sense is that it's not going to provoke the campers that they're more. disciplined than that to fall for that trap the occupy movement in a few months has shifted the debate and shown the american people that if they get mobilized and organized that we have power we can change the direction this country so the future's going to be an american spring that's going to explode on the scene and become more important the presidential race in two thousand and twelve is leading economies china has pledged to consider pumping cash reserves into the euro zone to help with the blocs debt crisis the offer comes after strong lobbying by the german chancellor during her three day trip to the country it comes as the e.u. awaits the conclusion of drawn out greek debt talks the negotiations are key to athens receiving a second bailout and are seen as its only opportunity to avoid default at the same time you leaders are would be virtually forced through unpopular financial legislation not all a member of the european parliament or the u.k.
independence party says that the people don't take kindly to these measures being forced upon them. only got to get worse i mean at the moment they're bending jamming the flags on the streets of athens i predict it will be rolled next and then there's been you never know it could be toppled as well the tensions between the countries particularly between the north of europe and the south of europe is only going to get greater and what you've got is you've got protests in the south and what we're seeing in the north is a political revolution where new parties are spreading you know and you're a skeptic parties are getting better results than ever before the scary thing here that you have is once you start tinkering with democracy and trying to change things. i think you got a very slippery slope in these and what's happening at the moment over here is that the e.u. is really showing it through to children what it's all about it doesn't want to listen to the people they're talking about an intergovernmental agreement and this will go into primary e.u. law through secondary legislation which means that the people can be bypassed there will be referendums across the continent particularly in iowa where the should be a referendum on this and what will happen is they will bypass the people and it
will go straight into review and they will get exactly what they want and it is a complete affront to democracy he used to consider the mirror his arch enemy blaming him for the death of his son alexander litvinenko the former f.s.b. officer but this week saw an unexpected change of heart from a fierce kremlin critic who now admits he simply said what the western press wanted to hear litvinenko spoke with r.t. . but it is. this is how we found and co praying in his tiny italian apartment no electricity no gas no court water what. if it wasn't for the help of his people i would have died from hunger or frozen to death the last time i took a bath was on christmas eve. we expected more because six years ago after his son former f.s.b. officer alexander litvinenko was poisoned in london he was taken care of by some
very powerful patrons make suffix out tycoon who is dissolved ski and. and a tourist former chechen militant both hiding in the u.k. . yet you get extremist you know that there are. given you're pretty your diverse you would be. one by three opinion co sent a letter asking to be interviewed by russian television we expected more of the same but instead. we're going to be made that he made a video if you're watching this program please forgive me for all the slander the thai said and wrote about all the hate you know how do you know only i had known my son worked for british intelligence i would not talk about his death he could easily have been shot as a double agent should be short of story what else can i add to the.
the u.-turn vaulters says came when his sons we don't marina been and co revealed to the british media that her husband had worked for and my six alexander litvinenko was receiving a retainer of around two thousand pounds a month from the british security services at the time he was murdered at first by turnitin and co like many others claimed his son had been poisoned with polonium to town on put in the former f.s.b. officer and fierce critic of the kremlin alexander litvinenko spent twenty three days in a london clinic slowly dying from a toxic substance possibly consumed through a cup of tea even before police in london started questioning suspects the victim's father was actively kissing the russian government today by their admits he was saying only what the west wanted to hear. of course i realize russia's f.s.b. and the idea you have to take polonium to london sprinkle it over some heads and
leave traces everywhere and their suspect. is not a fool either it was anger and blind hatred speaking inside of me viper and now believes his son fell victim to his own game of double agents now he wants his words to be heard but the media outside russia which wants down his door for interviews now won't even reply to his requests. why is that because they like it when i scold the regime i was a root treasure for the movie the whole there are very few people who would say as many horrible things about it as i did. you know living in two thousand eight hundred thousand young coal flat russia for sanctuary needs healing is settled in the sleeping quiet town of sunni guy it offered a new anonymous life the man claimed putin was his number one enemy so hiding in europe he believed was the only safe solution today by the libyan young co is still
afraid to open this door not because of putin though but because of his landlord to whom he owes a lot of money this miserable life has made him a slave of his century but surely the namco sold everything he had in russia to come to italy he opened a small business several years ago but it went bankrupt things got worse after the seventy three year old had buried his wife but for now fears her casket could be removed because he hasn't paid the cost of a barrel plot and it's been months since the electricity was shut off to his flat he was lost for two euros went on a gas canister and that is gone to the with this is how most of us talk at the do it to let the southern wind in sight. there is east only as russia. learned from. children who want to go home to russia i don't want to stay here.

introduced oil sanctions against iran and i know the iranian leadership has responded by saying the sanctions would do more harm to your advantage around me are still since iran gets seventy percent of its revenues from oil do you have any fears about negative social reactions including strikes as people may lose their jobs do you take this somehow into account in your work or. that these speculations are new to our country and our government or the power of the people all around ruling bodies or in power as a result of popular voting therefore our government and are all for it is a completely popular and our people have participated in all areas and spheres of our life from the very start of the revolution therefore as i've said there's nothing new about these talks which are actually quite outdated and irrelevant nonetheless they keep speculating on this matter of trying to stir up psychological warfare inside our country or in the countries of the region or probably among
people of their own countries that have enough of their own problems attempting to find someone else to blame for them we don't sell that much oil to your of illnesses and our european accounts don't have that much money. so you are starting to get this all stop the u.s. and the west as a how do not conceal that one of the main tasks of these sanctions is to get the oil prices for the iranian oil lower that's decreasing their revenues from the oil iran saudi is they want a two we used to manipulate the political situation. the way was that i believe they've made a big mistake as this action results in turbulence for the oil and energy markets this very factor can result in oil price growth in these conditions the west should expect the drop in the euro rate and the euro market this new decision will result in further economic problems which as we can see have affected them already and so
far they've been unable to find solutions oil and energy markets will experience instability and turmoil and this factor can boost prices for oil and energy products and jeopardize the market security but this is quite difficult for the markets which going by previous experience is used to consuming certain kinds of oil and energy and this also brings up technical and economic issues at the same time we're not worried for iran at all we've ensured our efficient planning in advance and with god's help we will continue moving forward but in the year the decisions taken today by the west unilaterally will result in the escalation of their own economic problems covering the story iran ians nav as the rankins with the aggressive and military rhetoric being built up by the west bank and they aren't as i've said these words aren't new these speculations have been going on for thirty years and there's no news in it to the iranian people the people of iran are in charge and they always participate in everything we don't sense any problems
inside the country and if i may i would like to ask you about the recent killing of a nuclear scientist there have been other similar cases and as far as we understand the investigation into it has not made great progress so far why have there been no substantial results and who might be behind the killing. of this is clear is day and they admitted mossad and the cia as well as some european security services don't like to see nations progress they would like to have control and a monopoly over everything the great a rainy a nation of follows the path of searched. for new technologies it wants to stand firmly on its feet by means of its own strengths and produce its own knowledge they disapprove of this progress and they don't want to see other nations develop themselves the fact that they come over to such people's homes or attempt to murder an educated and broad minded university professor highlights the grave nature of their situation it demonstrates that the us and israel have disgraced themselves in
this matter that they speak of human rights and at the same time they officially perform terrorist attacks and promote state terrorism expansion. in their slogans we see their idle talk on fighting terrorism their deeds however do not match their words they brought their troops to afghanistan under the pretext of defending human rights and fighting terrorism and drug trafficking and drug crops have increased forty fold since the americans got there. the number of casualties among innocent men women and children has increased significantly and so has the level of instability in the region that we actually witness terrorism development in the region with drug mafia and drug related revenues have grown as well and we see contradiction between their words and deeds. the scientists assassination will only make the iranian people stronger and more focused on their goal will people understand that they've chosen the right path the one of scientific progress the
adversary doesn't want to see this happen as it would cause harm to them in the physical annihilation of people in full daylight as a sign of the adversary is complete powerlessness and despair our initial yes last i now that iran is having parliamentary elections in a month in many countries not only arab ones election may be used as a way to create provocations there are always some people unhappy with election results and this discontent may snowball i am concerned by this that a similar scenario man followed in iran. no thank god we've had twenty nine elections to date and this. election campaign will be our thirtieth election and it will take place in absolute peace and security like all the previous ones because our dear fellow citizens in all the regions all the cities and villages will willingly come to polling stations and cast their votes to designate their delegates to parliament to serve the purposes of development and prosperity for our country. is that the start of the us as you noted r.t.
has been comprehensively covering the situation in the arab countries as we have covered the wars in libya and syria we often heard complaints from the leadership that the intelligence services of other countries have stepped up their operations on the territories of the countries concerned in the past year the way many are ledged imaginaries in syria and libya who could see with our own eyes that some people were apparently not libyans but fought on the side of the rebels can you see any increase in the operations of intelligence services from other countries or any attempts to penetrate your territory at least in recent years since the latest events in the arab countries began. you see foreign powers and other enemies are at work everywhere they might also be present in our country but we do not feel we should worry about this of course we should look out for superpowers and our enemies attempting to interfere in the home affairs of arabic countries especially in syria and in all countries where the people are in charge of running their
nations they must keep track of such attempts or i don't know of other ways years worth of work until it's been about ts since the arab spring began a first even the iranian leadership hailed the movements in egypt in libya as expressing democratic sentiments but now this one here is past the attitude towards the events around your country has changed do you still believe those are people driven by their own democratic ideas or do you see hundred other countries in the events of the arab spring. we support any popular movement as long as people's demands are legitimate and the imperialistic regime of world supremacies is obviously trying to lead people away from the right path and neutralize the popular movement or transform it in favor of their own interests but it will have to get a pure straightforward and righteous path that people have been following you know what countries of the region however is stipulated by their willingness to defend their. right which is a legitimate demand from iran's viewpoint but that is the biggest can one say that
the instability in the region has considerably increased the narcotic drugs trafficking well we need our long kong yes afghanistan is certainly the focus of narcotic plantations now the americans and europeans are there and since they came narcotic drugs production has increased forty four old and it's a financial source for most terrorists who infringe the security of central asian states the states of the region and russia itself it's a threat not only for iran but for the region at large and russia but if russia fails to keep an eye on what's going on next to its borders and around the country this threat will most probably become a serious problem for russia itself it's a fact that both iran and russia the main drug trafficking route where at the beginning of it because the drugs first penetrate our country and then follow to turkey and then to europe and on the other hand russia is also on the route that it's northern and because the drugs penetrate russia through central asia and then
go to europe we suffer serious losses on this route more than three thousand seven hundred lives have been lost in the attempt to resolve this issue. given we as humans are convinced we have to go on with this ruthless battle so as to save our people and despite the fact that the world community does not lend us necessary assistance in this cause we're alone to bear most financial costs and human losses in order to continue the struggle shut down the borders and blockade the territory inside the country in order to prevent the trafficking so it seems iran and russia will have to take responsibility for the problem themselves that they've been in the u.s. in when was the one of our best i was just the pairing for this interview several colleagues approached me at r.t. asking if there was going to be a war between iran and the usa which is you're on phone. as well as well in let me say this again all those fabrications are not new. to us the islamic republic of iran is
