twenty four seven this is our. the syrian opposition has called for the un backed military intervention to possibly take place right ahead of a security council vote on a resolution to send hundreds of observers to the country as monitors on the ground would help promote the cease fire agreement with multiple reports of the truce speaking violated by both sides in new york with the latest. there's been a combination of two resolutions to drop resolutions that were submitted to the u.n. security council one was submitted from russia the other submitted by the your european union and now a comedy show of these resolutions calls for. you and observer mission in
syria to expand. their any of the third verse to a total of three hundred unarmed observers to go to syria and continue monitoring the cease fire that was implemented on april twelfth which we can ask is any opposition group because this is of course one of the many calls holes that were laid out by mr kofi annan on she went to envoy for for the syrian president syria complicated he laid out a six point peace plan and so this observer mission is one of many things he has cost power to bring about that he's in syria another element has dropped resolution that we're told is that it was also time syria to commit to its responsibilities and its pledges meaning the syrian government's recording all its obligations according to the kofi annan on that six point peace plan so it seems as though
we're going to see another consensus across the board in the security council can turning syria this will be the second saturday in a row where another resolution would be top to the vote is expected to be held on saturday and it is expected to be voted upon and adopted and this would clearly show something that we haven't seen for thirteen months because the security council has been divided for so long on how to approach syria and clearly we're seeing a consensus across the board among the international community. pornography ordering there from the big old well what started as a protest in syria now more than a year ago turned into a major conflict claiming thousands of lives on a boy who reports from the city where the uprising began and she's there to ask the people whether it's all been worth it. they call it the cradle of the syrian revolution when a group of school kids was arrested that i was going for a painting and they're feeding protests just to keep the streets for days on.
the syrian military responded by rolling mean it's time given a year later the chief security officer in daraa is unapologetic demonstrators. with civilians in the army and of course their intention was to blame the government and those kids the rebels give them a few food and things. but even among a south supporters it's not a view shared by every right to protest in daraa and even seeing crackdown by the military to the turning point to syria and in hindsight some syrian officials now wish they handled it differently. we made a mistake when back in the days we didn't give a chance to syria based peaceful opposition to express itself more freely some of them truly care about the mission now we have to deal with the armed rebels the council in this stand ball and then you have religious sects like the selfies or
the muslim brothers. least no longer bound to speak here and merge and lifted the syrian authorities and now trying to get the media on their side they've allowed to move foreign journalists into the country stipulated by the annan plan and. what they call the real picture. but the bowler tell the realities on the crown put their own spin on any p.r. effort. then use of un monitors and foreign journalists prather on the other rebels intensify their attacks on the army units forcing syrian officials to abandon this sweet talk and her journalist back onto the bus. any occasion any of these it beats international monitors or reporters to respond to the. while themselves government in the ability to find the right balance
between freedom and security may have allowed this conflict to take off many analysts believe that learning how to do it is also crucial for its resolution president assad has long spoken about reforms he's going to a popular president for most syrians for a long time because of his you know so-called reform plans i think this protest in syria actually helped us because you know there are people within the syrian regime who don't really want to bear the hardliners so so this actually helped sort of you know the reform minded members of the regime in government. and you know their reform a lot more quickly a year intraday uprising is still one of the most turbulent cities in syria despite checkpoints all around the city spar is breached on an almost daily basis and here people are just as afraid to talk as they're free to. protest in daraa had been
called the spark that ignited the syrian flame which over the past year or scourged a sizable part of this country and while some syrian officials may now have regrets over the way point was handled it's not nearly enough to extinguish the fire it's not going to artsy syria. he is coming to you live from moscow a media blackout in france's presidential races now giving the cat gathered sir just a little breathing space it's a tight contest though which does threaten to oust the current leader nicolas sarkozy the top two expected to include socialist leader and front runner francois hollande will do battle in a runoff to decide the winner got to be coming in just about one week now as artists are similar reports economic gloom an all time high unemployment certainly dominating voters' concerns. one day to go before the friendship polls but one in
four voters still haven't made up their minds top of the french people's concerns are jobs and money in their pockets especially at a time when unemployment is around ten percent hitting an all time high that's about three million people unemployed so who can take. the french people's problems well according to the latest poll socialist party candidate do you believe that about twenty nine percent of potential voters don't want it wants to target the top earners of the country but he is criticized for this widely perceived lack of experience truly behind fossil a lot is incumbent loss of course he's a deeply unpopular president and one recent poll you would declare with the most unpopular president in fresh history of his presidency has been marred with one economic crisis after another the last weeks of campaigning he's turned to more radical rhetoric of just clamping down on immigration putting that number down or talking tough when it comes to security matters especially after the to lose incident he's also taken on a more confrontational tone towards the european union opposing that france freeze
its budget contribution to the e.u. budget currently plays according to the polls is most of the national front party she has been sticking to add to the immigration platform vowing to cut down the number of legal immigrants to temp hours of the year that's down from about one hundred eighty thousand at the moment and she has also said that she wants france to the euro and go back to the french currency the french frank what's being called the big surprise of this french presidential campaign is going to the middle of the left and right now his numbers have doubled since january from about six to seven percent to forty percent now he is mincing no words in this talking about a civic insurrection a revolution he did now says the financial sector and he also will shines the e.u. a fiscal pact that had been signed he wants to withdraw from nato he's taking on a very strong hard line approach these are the top four contenders wife for the top . job in france are based on the rhetoric they've been using in their campaign

this is the way to reform france is it was the very important steve data that was not true unfortunately discourse and more a general point of view i believe this was a campaign based on protection on the very nationalistic mood on the fact to truly rebuild to voters in france and. as far as you know economies concerns finance what the immigrants through it's impossible to have a close a country and then we have a true even. a way to manage the immigration which we need immigration as all the eighteen countries. media currency crisis. cuts. tragedy integration. who will be left standing with the people speech. the french election on r.t.

the stores are expensive and have come from so far as we don't have money to buy it . but now there might be a chance in a revolutionary move india's patent office has decided that they are a german pharmaceutical powerhouse would lose its use of rights to manufacture a lifesaving cancer pail that i use was a sort of wouldn't be hard. you can manufacture from abroad and send here it was an affordable to the indian population. and now a compulsory license would be given to a local indian pharmaceutical manufacturer that could make the exact same drug buy cheaper all of a sudden blows. up the medicine and one of the you know there are those that go in that it's news but if you focus on the price it's all possible because of the revised trade and international property rights agreement passed by the world trade organization known as trips the trips agreement focus is to provide medication to
all for people in developing countries that means that global pharmaceutical companies are required to sell a life altering medication at a reasonably afford to fight it people in those countries if they don't do that patent offices in those countries can ask these global pharmaceutical companies to provide compulsory licenses so that a local manufacturer can benefit make those drugs the idea is that the global pharmaceutical companies would then be stripped of their monopoly on drugs in developing countries. harry has said in statements that it is quote disappointed in the rule him and is looking for ways to challenge it this is a sort of waterloo to the back and all of us who even their product you know the pricing and even all the other things you know really give them a living wage
a chance to live in a good chance for india to stand up against domination from the west preassure either r t new delhi india. or at a time after to get more of russia in our latest collection of close up it's almost recent adventure tour to a number four flood part of the nation. and today we're exploring russia's extreme north. and it's bigger than france but half of its territory lies are well beyond the arctic circle their winter their last at least eight months which means only a few species can survive in the harsh conditions reindeer and fish mean everything for being good generous people populating this are rather than welcoming land so we send our teams time to go and enjoy himself.
an icon of the north near yet some of the native northern peoples follow grazing reindeer wherever they go their routines revolving around the animals the life of the reindeer herder is usually hard in isolated but occasionally they gather to share their world i'm competing the skills they hold on the tundra and i'm about to join the celebrations. throwing. stick wrestling. and hurdle jumping all cause for competition but the main event is rapidly approaching. races bring teams from far and wide of the competition is tough i feel a bit nervous my rivals get better every year even though i won last year this year the younger ones may compete on a par with me. and perhaps he's right to be
a bit jittery but it seems getting started is the trickiest moment. sometimes for a cameraman to. look you're. going to see after the festivities to sit down to eat some reindeer of course but also that other russian arctic speciality fish in this nearby factory they're preparing fantasies of none of these a sea. fish all having been cool to quote from the movies and i'm told demand is. simply not a problem here isn't enough for a product even to cover the domestic market europeans find your products delicious and into logical if you work but so far with simply haven't enough of them out to see where all this comes from we caught up with andre he's been fishing since he was a child on the home today of the river shark pike like his catch and raise
a true russian more than a year from where we can't say for fishing in the south it may have its advantages as for me i love to fish right here in the north when it's frosty weather through the air it's fresh and the sun is bright it's great. ten point later andres off to prepare his dinner and we have a small insight into the central importance of these animals to the lives of norm while those without the fish and without the deer. in the lives of those who live here would be very empty indeed tom bought some. whether we love it or not genetically modified food is everywhere and has become part of everyday life the next artie's resident in the big apple asks people on the streets whether they think g.m. food is a good thing. are
you concerned about genetically modified or enhanced foods or is that just an overblown issue this week let's talk about that do you care. obviously not i'm well i think it's less processed foods in europe that's for sure yeah i do think a lot of it is corporate driven here and it is related to money unfortunately modifying genetically food is totally naked and controlling they want to take over the super food sources over mankind so they can basically push up on us so why are americans ok with that i think is the knowledge they want to get information from regular t.v. . that are just being into teen did you know that color was is made with high from just corn syrup in the united states but everywhere else it's made with pure cane sugar i didn't know that but it doesn't surprise me. so what is that why don't
americans demands better things in their food. they don't want to pay more money for their food in the days they used to what they're eating i don't care as long as they're comfortable it doesn't matter that would be my guess i think our country is run by greed and money and there's a lot of issues here so. why is it they when the greed is so strong bet it messes with what people eat. i think i think you just answer the question with your question do you think because the population is growing and growing and growing bet we're bound to eat things like meat meat in petri dishes and those kinds of extremes probably yes there's this website i don't remember the name of it but supposedly you put what you we in a week. and told you how many earths we would need for everyone in the world the same amount you know i or i what i was which i didn't and it turns out. there really to be such earths for me i know i'm a decent size to say the least but you know your prayers that if americans stopped
buying genic we modified food rather you think that they'd stop making at all that's one hundred percent yes the find a man with the demand dries up the supply dries up to it need to start putting out on labels that everything within their right absolutely and more people are getting wise to labels no i think when they're in the supermarkets and the shop in those see the signs are not there start to read more than pick it off the shelf or put in a basket i think the slowly get the idea through media but i think at least to go more useful further whether or not you're concerned about genetically modified foods the bottom line is if you live in the united states you're probably eating a lot more of them than you realize. what is likely to happen with us so here are two today in just a moment the headlines politicization of the costs report have received.
