in because of the protests in may which. basically hijacked by radicals we saw violence erupt in some places with both police on demonstrators being injured cheering knows so we saw new laws pushed through the parliament signed off by the president which will make it which will result in much stiffer penalties for people attending organizing bun sanctioned rallies now this demonstration is sanctioned it's allowed to continue until six pm moscow time which is around three hours away . what we will see though is the if anybody stays or refuses to leave after that time they will be taking part in an unsanctioned rally that could now bring around a penalty of up to seven thousand euro in fines. and the the there is a large police presence here as well to try and keep the peace here and if people are refusing to leave after the lot of time they will be expected moving into clue . this street in central moscow. ok peter over in central moscow today they will

7:07 am
terrorist operating in syria saying that the international terrorist organisation could fuel the violence and could fuel this conflict so that and the west's message is somewhat muddled that assad is not responsible for all violence here in his country but he is being held responsible regardless or if. the threats of a looming western intervention in syria are being greeted with enthusiasm by the rebels the opposition forces along with the syrian army are accused by the u.n. of using children as human shields international relations professor mark almond says for some regime change is the same so much can be overlooked. the high states in britain france have made a strategic decision by a long haul as a way of putting pressure on iran change in. the middle east and therefore if they can achieve that through syrian domestic horses deniable or the arab special.

7:09 am
leaders of intervening countries have to justify their wars to their people it's depressingly easy to sell a war it's almost becoming a habit actually even in spite of all that we now know about the lies told over iraq the same stereotypes crop up again and again and again regardless of who or what kind of regime is being attacked whether it's a secular regime or a religious one to the viewer it's about the good guy bad guy it's about saturating us over and over and over again with the same images but here's what they're good at satisfied the viewing audience without exposing your true agenda in one thousand nine hundred ninety agree no react told the story of what iraqi soldiers did to babies in a kuwaiti hospital to think it is and let these children today have a clue. her testimony was widely publicized and cited by politicians in justifying their support for kuwait in the first gulf war turned out she was the daughter of
7:10 am
the kuwaiti ambassador to the us and her testimony was part of a public relations campaign run by an american p.r. agency for the kuwaiti government sparking controversy and public anger. p.r. firms or individuals spin doctors consulting for governments and politicians is certainly not new or uncommon but while there may be a need for effective communication there's also a very thin line between that and saddam hussein to build and keep weapons of mass destruction out right manipulation as many would point to the nonexistent weapons of mass destruction he used as a pretext for western powers to attack iraq in two thousand and three. communication is a weapon each slogan is a dumb dumb fillets advertising terms have become war terms we talk about target we talk about it strikes again we talk about its impact if this is terrible it is also a weapon in the war because all war is not our broadcast live and these images

content for this world opinion with you but it's already been done several times in the past change the face of war to bring the bodies to make up you can always simulate a massacre that is not the current it was misinformation it is easy to fall during a period of war the first need to get it even when history is full of examples to learn from some say people's collective memories are simply too short reality is hardly ever block of white truth as many sides to it but when the wheels of the p.r. war machine start serving up polish that happens the facts take a back seat at the first a lot of statements are often what sticks and even if corrections apologies come later the damage that's already been shot up the quotes are often the reverse of a. dozen or so you are to me. still to come. and says bless square and tell him obey prison is a denied justice is the us turns a blind alley that was being held for years without even being charged with any

crime. and the new optimism over spain's hundred billion euro bailout crumbles as markets realize that not even that's enough to bring them back from the brink. israel's arrested dozens of sudanese refugees in the first stage of its plan to deport more than fifty thousand african nationals the country stars itself as the middle east soley oasis of democracy in its attracted many africans fleeing from violence to their homelands but their one way journey rarely has a happy ending as policy or found out i thought that even though the sudanese are a cancer in our body we'll do everything to return them to their alliance strong words from a politician in the country built by those who survived the holocaust. sudanese dissident sudanese to sit down and even stronger words inciting racial hatred against african migrants. point minister benjamin netanyahu has boasted loud that israel is the only democracy in the middle east and yet it's his

own politicians who calling for verse that vehicle we need to expel the infiltrators from the lands of israel and we shouldn't be afraid to use that word many of the so-called infiltrators have already been expelled once fleeing poverty violence of authoritarian rule some sixty thousand of them have crossed illegally into israel through the relatively poorest dysart border with egypt israel is warn of an impending demographic and economic crisis in the future these are people who experienced severe trauma in their native land in therefore they saw their villages burned down they were trees who were slaves of a dictatorial regime somewhere in torture camps in sinai and then a new struggle starts for them. israeli say most come seeking work rather than refuge and when it comes to growing crime figures the newcomers make convenient scapegoats but the government cannot deport the migrants as they have
7:14 am
a group protection those from sudan and eritrea no matter what the circumstances cannot be sent back because they face possible persecution and so they stay there without work permits and denied the most basic rights like shelter and food i feel very scary that most for that we have this this is a really really scary we feel like very secure. now and then there will be the. arts of violence towards the refugees and they already have been apartments of african workers set alight and almost daily beatings. far from dealing with the situation prime minister netanyahu has announced his intention to go ahead with building a detention center to house ten thousand africans and to enforce a controversial law that will allow israel forty's to imprison illegal immigrants for up to three years without a trial then assume the leg they should look into the eyes of visa africans who

fled violence and despair and think about what they're doing to see how they were demonized how they were called names is terrible i am ashamed am ashamed as an israeli as a jew in recent months street violence against the africans has surged all the more insidious because it seems to be getting the nod from above policy r.t. tel aviv. the world covered on the web site r.t. dot com including details on the us state of skewered laws says it can be ok to put a gun on a police officer going to read up more about that online today. i know what you do on the web a russian tech security firms warning we are now in the midst of an international cyber war orchestrated by the same group behind two of the most damaging campaigns to date.
7:16 am
high tech gadgets and software are supposed to make our lives simpler but to do it all they have to gather our private data of course there's a fear over what the tech firms are doing with our personal info when they get it whether they can really keep anything secret anymore later this hour julie their sons than meets the cyberpunk movement who say they're fighting our corner. when my country is a new in people have a security clearance and they're allowed to access that private or four point three million how can you call the data private or write that's the problem rate is that it is not actually truly what her. percent secret from every person on the pillow it is only secret from the people who are from the power of the powerful you're exactly sure when we talk about internet censorship it is about centralizing power to determine what people be able to access or not and whether it's government censorship or also private on censorship there are tinging the architecture of the

internet from one universal network to a balcony is asian of small networks but what we are discussing since the beginning are all global issues whether we're talking of the the financial system going henri whether we're talking of corruption whether we're talking of geopolitics or energy or environment or i don't know all of these are global problems that mankind is facing today and we have one still one global tool between our hands that enables better communication better sharing of knowledge better participation in in political and democratic process what i feel what i suspect is that global universal internet is the only tool we still have between our hands to sort of wrestle them those global issues and this is why this is a central fight that we have to fight and that we all have a responsibility here too to fight. during the surgery here less

than fifteen minutes if you've missed any of the series so far and let you know you can catch all the addition streaming online on our website whenever you like to catch up with r.t. dot com. one hundred billion euros is not enough to allay the pains that is the message being signal by investors just days after the eurozone agreed to an enormous bailout for spanish banks the initial market optimism quickly evaporated spanish. says that of toll that broken jobless spaniards have been left to fend for themselves. the spanish government has been pushing a very very strict agenda austerity cuts for months already we've seen that before in all their bailout countries when you put one hundred billion euro see into any economy there is sense to see as much for a few days and then investors realize that we're still in an economic crisis in an economic downturn in the case of spain even in
7:19 am
a recession certainly the banks have to be bailed out we need our banking system intact of course but people east anglia because the banks are actually at the root cause of this crisis decrease over spain because of the property bubble the cheap loans and all that so people would be saying why bailout of the banks bailout us we also need to be citing why they're angry. next hour in our tears well american economist nouriel roubini tells us why europe's debt ridden states can't all be tarred with the same brush. from those people who tend to say the eurozone problems because of lack of his called the brain or fisk of reckless those that applies to be the really only the greece the. ally then there is the fifteen percent of g.d.p. . that is it and then that led to the fiscal crisis and actually in that in spain in the island was the private sector bad about to lead to the problems of having to bail out the banks large that is the greater the fiscal problem with on the fiscal

problem the first grades. so you cannot generalize there are different types of cries within the eurozone. the u.s. supreme court refusing to hear an appeal filed by seven guantanamo bay prisoners over being locked up for lengthy periods without him being charged that's despite president obama's electoral promise to close the notorious facility for good and the worthington author of the guantanamo files believe such an approach makes a mockery of the entire us justice system. for the last two years in particular the d.c. circuit court said the appeals court has been rewriting the rules of detention has been overriding that it's citizens that were made by the district court judges has been saying effectively anything that the government says we should be treating as though it's true. and has been stopping any of the prisoners being released through these legal means in the last two years not
7:21 am
a single prisoner has when their neighbors called was a decision it's very very politically motivated by the d.c. circuit courts these are very right wing judges they don't want prisoners released under any circumstances what was happening in the early days was that judges were very impartially looking at the evidence and saying look you're calling upon the evidence of some of the prisoners fellow detainees we also see here that you have actually said that you don't trust the statements that were made by a lot of these prisoners we don't trust your statements that were made by people in the field they were very carefully looking at all the different sides as they're supposed to do but there's been these persistent refusal to release people regardless of how they're judged and i think that makes a mockery of the entire process if we keep having review processes under bush and now under obama saying we do not want to keep holding these people and yet we don't
7:22 am

7:23 am
it's steamrollers on what we're being dealt with there on the market floor what's the church well is dominating the kevin quite frankly is we're all traders investors are talking about a con a miss they've got spain on the brain. i'm a poet and i didn't know it now we did have the brief optimism over spain's bank deal worth one hundred twenty six billion dollars but that was replaced by questions concerns about the details now i also want to mention the bone yield split spain and italy are rising so that's a concern we've got the looming election in greece coming up this weekend so we do have the fits in the dax gaining this hour but i must say the trading is thin on the ground it's because it's not necessarily a week to go shopping you know investors are holding on to their positions to anticipate what is happening i also want to mention that u.s. stock markets are indeed there pointing makes it in my event i do also want to mention the u.k. industrial production fell for the fourteen consecutive months as well and i'm

7:25 am
is that the policy easing we saw last week from the government of china is finding some traction so it's finding its way which investors they do like that the house will see some optimism play out some more on the asian markets will certainly say all right is have a look at the russian markets as you say kevin they are indeed closed today as a public holiday but these were the closing figures on a sunday so they were higher because at that point in time although prices were high up i'll have a look at the ruble a see that had a mixed performance against the balls get of currencies we get the exchange rates you'll be able to see that particularly because of the holiday may they are i would also have a look at the dollar. carry case we'll talk about all of us. oil is falling for a fourth day now and then it's off to saudi arabia or menaces says but. they need a high output live it and the u.s. issued more exemptions from sanctions of buying a wrong crude what that does is it cuts the risk of supply disruptions for prices
