classrooms early in the school year and stop strike over pay and conditions that says more american parents are teaching their children at home. thanks for joining us here on our t.v. we're live from moscow with me to say first after the protest the political panic a flurry of meetings have been held among palestinian leaders jolted into action by massive demonstrations which turned violent thousands who were furious at the rising prices of basic goods skimmers are with riot police across the west bank arches policy explains what's driven people to extremes. palestinian authority ministers are meeting to discuss ways of easing the economic situation of the ordinary palestinians across the west bank this was the source of demonstrations on

monday which turned violent in the cities of hebron and nablus when dozens of youths burnt tires and blocked streets that dovetails with a strike by municipal workers by taxi drivers as well as by those involved in the public transport sector people are really protesting against the rising cost of basic commodities you just need to look at fuel which has gone up by some five percent in recent times the palestinian authority is fast losing legitimacy amongst its own people this western backed government though has its hands tied because israel collects taxes on behalf of the palestinian authority at the same time while israelis can sell goods to palestinians they in turn cannot sell goods to his radius so you have a situation where the palestinian economy is being held hostage by the israeli government and there's very little that the palestinians can do without the israelis giving the nod now the israelis are also eyeing with concern this growing
11:03 am
discontent in the west bank and this is because they fear that it could result in the food into father or third palestinian uprising against television to this and we have been hearing some reports that there are those within the israeli government that are urging tel aviv to hand over money to the palestinian authority quickly to hand over tax collection money despite the fact that it is only supposed to happen at the end of the month but it is questionable whether or not this is going to ease the tensions within the palestinian authority we know there that government employees have not received to date more than half of the august salaries the arab spring which took place and so many may bring states here until now has bypassed the palestinian population but this does not mean that they aren't real schisms within palestinian society particularly over the rising cost of living policy r.t. kadima israel. political analysts say law is on a neary says that while people are angry at the palestinian leadership that's not
11:04 am
all that much the administration can do. yes there is anger against president abbas against prime minister fayyad against those rules of what it did not precisely because of the crisis itself the because of the in action. more than one level on the level of negotiations with israel nothing is happening there is frustration among the palestinians on the level of a consolation with hamas nothing is happening because there is also an impasse on that front and nothing is moving on and with this kind of impasse on the palestinian territories and with the prices going up skyrocketing day after day what can you expect more from the palestinian authority bring me the best magician on the to take over from. the from prison a bus will they do it they cannot do it because the overall atmosphere around is not is not conducive at all for profit economic prosperity. coming up later on in the program a waste of revolutionary fervor we look at how some of egypt's public services have

suffered after the chaos of lots here it's all rubbish piling up on the streets. and new decree by russian president putin has put energy giant gazprom under state protection and it's facing an empty monopoly probe by the e.u. a company officials us say those are just attempts to push down gas prices. piece going off explains. gas from isn't only an energy giant it's a strategic state company a worldwide known brands with the billions of assets thousands of kilometers of infrastructure massive resources and great influence on the russian economy it doesn't only supply millions of russians with energy but millions of western europeans as a while since just from works with most members of the european union and putting suits chief spokesperson said for decades has been able to successfully do business with western european borders but now it's experiencing political pressure at first
11:06 am
these searches around a year ago and his daughter companies now this anti monopoly investigation held by the european commission which is actually a political body getting involved in business related issues and basically of this a decree signed by the president on tuesday is aimed at protecting companies like gazprom and is a proportion of the answer given to the situation and from now on all the question of that you will be enough towards me have to gazprom will have to be addressed directly to the state then a giant is being accused of being a monopoly but there are really a many other energy companies out there on the market it's a free choice for any consumer to decide which company they want to work with whereas it's not a free choice when it comes to the price of gas it does depend on market conditions and on the price of oil and according to gas bomb using political pressure for it to lower its gas prices is very likely that it's going to be effective but gas from
11:07 am
says that it's still ready for business dialogue with its partners. for a closer look at how this decree could affect russian companies doing business abroad watch our business bulletin coming up shortly but probably gets problems deals isn't the only thing preoccupying the trouble to write down the greek prime minister is feeling the need to actually meet one of his chief paymasters and news that debt inspectors not a bad really problem greece's plan. the un human rights she has said that both sides in the syrian conflict must share the blame for repeated violence loving people legg condemn to the government's use of heavy weapons while the rebels she said should be held accountable for extra judicial execution and torture but as tears are celia reports some foreign powers are turning a blind eye to the crimes committed by armed groups. the new joint u.n. arab league special envoy to syria left more brahimi who's been tasked with trying
11:08 am
to broker a peace plan to when the eighteen month long conflict in syria has just called his task order quote nearly impossible now this is a different set to the stand he took when he first got the job he was optimistic in the beginning thinking that he could help pave the way for peace between the warring sides in syria also heard the secretary general ban ki-moon has condemned the assad regime for all the atrocities they were committing against the syrian people but also the rebel groups and the condemning both sides saying that the choosing of violence and force rather than we've also. reviewed the rights of people like who. has been a staunchly critical of the assad regime and blaming condemning the regime for their treatment of their actions in this conflict she's also come out and spoke against the rebel groups and any groups armed groups that have been committing atrocities against the syrian people she said that all sides should be held
11:09 am
responsible for all their actions killed you've heard from the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton as well as french president both with expressing their support for the syrian rebels france has already been sending aid to three revelry regions in syria as of recent weeks now with a lot of consensus from the international community on how to approach a situation as well as conflicting messages on one side is responsible for the atrocities the support that is being given to one side versus another it's not hard to understand why look more brahimi has been calling his task now as nearly impossible. now going to the inmate who had recently come of hunger strike has become the nine detained need to die at the scandal ridden facility where he was allegedly kept in complete isolation for being unruly according to prison guards more now on this death with ryan dawson co-author of why peace and. a contributor to what really happened to dot com good to see you there mr dawson now the question
11:10 am
for you that hasn't been as stablished but many people when they hear about guantanamo they think of torture could that have been foul play involved do you think. possibly earlier in two thousand and six we have three so-called suicides where people had rags stuffed in their mouths and also were hanged which is a little suspicious to suffocate yourself with a rag and also hang yourself and we know one of the methods of torture is dr boarding where rags are stopped in prisoners miles and there are tapes where this person died of suicide or not we're not going to know because he's categorized as an enemy combatant which is essentially a human being with no rights and as an american i'm completely shamed of that because it's completely unconstitutional. essentially this detainee had not been charged with anything and reportedly wasn't going to be prosecuted what was he still doing at guantanamo well actually that's not
11:11 am
a typical case he's been there for years without being charged but once again as an enemy combatant it's going to be very hard to get to the bottom of it as to why as for why he wasn't released when he hasn't been charged with anything we may never know he may have been a victim of torture or witnessed torture any number of things that the u.s. wouldn't want to get out but it's going to be hard to get that information right now the u.s. says eight hundred leads many of the prisoners that aren't being charged because it confines any stable country to accept them what exactly does that mean i mean can that be a valid reason to keep people they are. i think there's just an excuse to keep people there they've released people back to game in which is in the middle of a civil war you could hardly call that stable and they've died there so i don't think that's really an honest pretext to hold prisoners there at all i think they have more sinister reasons do you think that it's still then entirely obama's fault that guantanamo is still open i mean if allied nations refused to accept prisoners
11:12 am
some of which they own national nationals from the facility it's not completely obama's fault but he did run on a campaign of closing guantanamo bay and didn't even attempt to do it and i know some democrats would like to fault the republicans for that and say that's the congress's fault but he didn't even attempt to close guantanamo it's one thing to get overruled by the other party or another branch of government it's another thing to not even bother with it he simply lied because that was something politically feasible at the time it helped him get elected as for allies not accepting these detainees again i am not buying that is the real excuse as they have released prisoners before who have died in the middle of a civil war most of those and i just want to talk a little bit about prison sometimes also dubbed the guantanamo of afghanistan and it has been handed over to afghan forces what do you make of that. i think that's a bit like rearranging the chairs on the deck of the titanic if you remember last
11:13 am
year. in kandahar there was a prison break in where the taliban successfully dug a tunnel into a prison and released over five hundred taliban fighters and that was largely blamed on the lackadaisical afghan guards and now they want to hand it over to the afghans another prison but it's not really a true handover because the u.s. is keeping a check on that they're not going to allow their enemies to release any of the prisoners the u.s. doesn't want released actually it's only a handover on paper that was going to be my next question because america refuses to hand over bob graham inmates that would be released by the afghans as they aren't really charged with anything is that essentially guantanamo but even worse as they actually have some way to go. slightly worse i guess you could say because they definitely could be reabsorbed into their country where they were captured in guantanamo to a lot of these people who were there were taliban fighters who were fighting the

northern alliance before nine eleven they are prisoners of war but they're not categorized as such so they don't enjoy any rights of p.o.w.'s cried less leave it there thank you so much for your thoughts on this ryan dawson co-author of why peace and a contributor to what really happened to dot com. the revolution in egypt as a way the decades old dictatorship but when it comes to sweeping the streets the country's new leadership isn't having so much success the prolonged state of flux that followed last year's uprising has led to monday maja's like basic public services just suffer with tons of garbage now rotting in the capital streets artie's oksana boy has a story. a revolution or a leftover that's already starting to cause a bit of a stink it took objection to eighteen days of mass protests to oust hosni mubarak yet in the eighteen in soon month they've encountered
11:15 am
a far more pungent problem with residents don't wait for garbage collection instead they threw it out onto the streets and we have to collect it. cairo has never been a particularly clean city but the growing piles of garbage have become a major blood on its revolutionary glory president mohamed morsi promised to solve the problem in his first one hundred days in office but more than two months into his reign he's yet to show any haste in eliminating the waste and look at all of the law they said garbage fans were unable to access narrow alleys we prepared small vehicles yet the regional government and cleaning commission violated the contracts as a maci would go to that idea for many years carter had its own environmentally friendly system of processing waste for a small fee garbage collectors most of them christians one door to door picking up organic leftovers and fitting them to pigs that was until two thousand and nine when the pigs were called because of swine flu the mubarak government came up with
11:16 am
some alternatives but they all collapsed alongside the regime. on this pigs used to be these are getting cremains now would have to pick up all their getting material put it in containers but the problem is how to dispose of it that we have no place to process it. from libya to egypt trash overload has become a major visible change brought by the arab spring and an unpleasant reminder that the previous governments were not as worthless as revolutionaries painted them well this is this is all. very nice. actually well. if you. like. the way i have. tossed her. the fifteen tons of garbage dumped on the streets of cairo every day more and more

egyptians are now starting to see the difference between the politics of revolution and the policies of responsible government. the main assumption in all revolutions is that when an old leader is gone the quality of life can only get better it is only later when the basic services start to crumble and when things people used to take for granted i'm no longer there that the revolution and the regime with the post finally getting a more realistic assessment of some of the r.t. . a brief look at other news from around the world twelve people have been killed in the blast near yemen's capital sanaa a target of the country's defense minister who escaped the attack unharmed at least five of those did where the minister's bodyguards some witnesses said they heard gunfire as ambulances were arriving at this. comes just a week after al qaeda is second in command was killed in yemen. at least one

a delicate balancing act looms for the greek a prime minister until now has some merits as he meets one of his chief paymaster as the president of the european central bank mario drugging the frankfurter talks could be easy especially hard given recent revelations that house all of the greek government's plan cuts have been rejected by debt inspectors six out of twelve billion euros worth of us territory measures have been deemed either too they are all unrealistic and the greek government confines something else to cut to make up the difference in may deny whole bailout money meaning potential bankruptcy judges of terrorism gentleness and lecturer at the university of a john says it's a cuts go through it will lead only to mourn arrest. i think that if this is going to be able to garner page in these three governments and also the greek parliament accepting such socially devastating measures to be dictated by our creditors who
11:20 am
are quite openly of course blackmailing that regard them until terence leigh waiting yet another. part of the bailout agreement thirty one billions to be more precise which are absolutely necessary and i think that under the threat of such a forced de force i think that the greek government in the end made a list is growing to accept these measures but of course this will open the way for an even today are under the greater deterioration of the social crisis crisis that is now preventing britain we will see more and more unrest we're going to see major strikes very big demonstrations but also actual expression of their the anger that this building up with their site. there's across all warfare in the us but it's nothing to do with social status teachers they're walking out of their thousands do mending better pay and conditions and a school see
