if you care about humans. this is why you should care only on the orgy dot com. tonight apollo defends trading trivia sea for security after leaks expose a gargantuan government surveillance empire was so vast that even the author of the power. a love hate relationship the u.s. press is china over suspected hackers attacks as america's shaky recovery becomes increasingly dependent on chinese investment. and families move to get lads' mags with scantily clad women on the cover taken off the british shelves but critics call it in the attack on free speech. alone a very good evening from moscow if you just joined us coming to you live just after
3:01 pm
eleven pm now moscow time it's kevin over here at r.t. first there's no way around it as president obama has declared but to sacrifice previously in the name of security and according to league documents his administration has done just that establish stop wishing a surveillance mechanism and precedent it in its size and scope web history net how bits and the call records of hundreds of millions of americans and people worldwide incidentally a big reportedly funneled to u.s. spy agencies and now with more on these revelations. and a massive leak on the extent of surveillance on hundreds of millions of people dubbed breathtaking by civil rights groups and outraged americans more revelations on what exactly u.s. officials have been popping into the light america's national security agency has been using three of the biggest u.s. telecom companies verizon and sprint to monitor all phone calls made by subscribers now combined keep in mind these three companies have
3:02 pm
a staggering almost three hundred million customers and the spying is reportedly done regardless of whether or not there is reason to suspect scriver is of any criminal activity and this is of course shocking this includes all of the phone calls being made within the united states as well as between the u.s. and foreign countries making really the scope of this tracking system even wider than american territory and of course this comes at a time after the obama administration acknowledges the existence of an n.s.a. and f.b.i. program dubbed prism in a nutshell this program what it entails is nine major internet companies that include google facebook yahoo microsoft skype you tube apple a.o.l. and powell talk have been used by u.s. officials to monitor photos videos e-mails and audio to all other sorts of information tracking a really sweeping scope of individuals online activity and the n.s.a. is of course you know traditionally understood to gather foreign intelligence so the tracking of hundreds of millions of americans online accounts on u.s.
3:03 pm
territory through american companies is certainly a pugil revolution to put it mildly but because of the popularity of these web companies such as google and facebook for instance it's absolutely obvious that communication spied upon does not just include americans and overall just staggering all consuming monitoring of personal data that is a major eye opening example of what obama's administration has been up to we have heard comments from europe mainly germany for example about the need to clarify the scope of this u.s. program on questions are also being asked about the extent of the knowledge of the british government in terms of what kind of knowledge it had on the survey. sixty and how it might have cooperated and dealt with the u.s. on this as well and it's important to note that online freedom fighting group anonymous has leaked a total of thirteen documents curiously one of them the us department of defense so-called strategic vision for controlling the internet and on an intelligence sharing network which shares data with partners around the world and obama's comments on this major scandal have also been pretty curious basically the us
3:04 pm
president in a nutshell says that absolute security cannot walk hand in hand with privacy and lack of inconvenience and you know putting aside the claim of absolute security in the u.s. certainly something that has reason to be widely questioned this seems to be a statement completely opposing a belief voiced by our founding father benjamin franklin the those willing to give up liberty for some safety don't deserve either one but apparently the roots of the american history that the country prides itself in now irrelevant as obama's administration tries to wash off the amount of dirt released under a leader who swore by transparency as well as present of u.s. practices of democracy to the rest of the world as absolutely stellar. what would have been the work for the national security agency for thirty years or less to leave alone to produce and he told us the sweeping nature of the program only serves to encourage abuse. it's a direct violation of the constitution and always has been that's why i left the n.s.a. in two thousand and one they started to do this and of course the congress and the
3:05 pm
administration at the time was being baboo bamboozled by the intelligence community saying that you have to collect all this data is so we can find the bad guys and if we don't do that we won't be able to achieve that and their budgets have been almost tripled i think since nine eleven so what they're really doing is saying we have to we have to use what we have which was that which is the problem with power when you give power to to an organization or to people they tend to use it and assembling this kind of information about all of all the citizens in the united states or anybody else for that matter gives you power against them you have leverage now and you can use that power against them or you can you can use other agencies of the government like the i.r.s. to investigate people like for example if they needed or they wanted to know who is in the tea party they already have that from the telephone and e-mail networks that build those social communities communities built from that data will tell them who's participating in the tea parties the central figures and who are not central to the to the to the tea party and then from that if they're asking for tax exempt
3:06 pm
status you can send the i.r.s. after them to harass them that's what's possible that's what this power of knowledge does it gives them that power to do that. washington's reacted furiously even to the leak on an internal investigation reportedly already under way paul rosenberg's the author of the free man's perspective newsletter he thinks that despite this bombshell most americans are still in denial of what's happening anyway. the problem with the people in the us right now is that they are not emotionally prepared to deal with the possibility of an electronic police it's just something that they've never that something that happened in east germany something that happened in china but they never think such a thing is possible in america. it's a good question over how many people will just find a reason to pass it off there was terrorism one hundred years ago there was terrorism thirty years ago these organizations spent billions before nine eleven
3:07 pm
they spent billions before the seven seventh's bombings they spent additional billions before the vast boston bombings and they occurred just the same there's going to be terrorism one hundred years from now too so it's a fallacious trade the sale give us out give us all of your privacy and we'll give you security they haven't done it and they can't. coming up turkey's unrest is running into the second week later in the program a report on fresh standoff between riot police and anti-government activists in istanbul and why the country's leadership is failing to calm the nation so far. but next cyber security issues high on the agenda between china and the u.s. this weekend is the country's first bilateral summit in a decade wraps up in california it is not important who follow the leaders meetings let's catch up with her now and see how those leaders got on it was due to be a rather tense day of talks was made saturday what was on the list that. well clearly there are a lot of topics on the list for this so-called informal summit between u.s.
3:08 pm
president barack obama and chinese leader cheesing ping what while it appeared to be all smiles the men were dressed very casually no ties no jackets walking along this private sprawling estate in california there was a lot of things to discuss among them economic issues north korea but the most important issue here that the leaders are discussing is cyber security now amid this meeting before this meeting took place reports have appeared indicating that obama has ordered his national security leaders to compile a list of potential over seas adversaries for cyber hacking which can be targeted with little or no warning why is that important to mention because for the past several months or more than five u.s. officials have been accusing hackers in china that have links to the chinese military the chinese government of hacking into u.s. systems in stealing defense programs stealing weapons programs stealing the patents
3:09 pm
and technologies of u.s. manufacturers those accusations china has vehemently denied and said that they are not a part of any hacking that's going on within the u.s. system but china also recently said or a technology official part of the chinese government also pointed a finger back at the u.s. so that they have massive records and facts indicating that hackers in the u.s. are hacking into into china's. china secrets and systems so clearly these tense talks are boiling up and these are the talks that apparently the leaders of the u.s. and china are expected to be having right now and now u.s. president barack obama did come out and say he believes these talks so far have been very terrific he's also said that he is hoping that the chinese and u.s. military can strengthen its ties and some would say that that could be. problematic considering considering the pivot that the u.s.
3:10 pm
military has made to the asia pacific many experts believe that the u.s. is now surrounding china militarily building up militarily in china's backyard so clearly there is a lot of confrontations or issues that both of the elite these leaders need to confront but at the end of the day these two countries the two largest economies in the world need to find a way to work together because they are tied in systemically with when it comes to debt when it comes to borrowing when it comes to trade but the tense moments right now seem to be surrounding cyber security virtual espionage and these mutual accusations of hacking and this is what both these leaders need to be ironing out right now report correspondent new york. well things up in the u.s. not only over. there but also overseas trading. me to destroy a deal that could become his biggest ever take over of an american company the
3:11 pm
scale of the moves got some business leaders worried but other spot golden opportunity this is a quote from virginia. who told harry more he says he thinks his state's actually going to benefit from the deal by getting better access to the vast chinese market to return the global struggle germany's george who agrees he told me there's no groans to criticize china. there is always going to be the segment of the american politicians and pundits that are always looking for something to criticize when it is involving china and sometimes of criticism comes from left field with no basis whatsoever certainly in this case the opportunity to. do so to blacken this deal they point out that chinese fork is not safe for their dead pig slowly known a river in shanghai it's also for the intention is not to supply the americans with
3:12 pm
chinese port but really it's to supply american port in china to the growing market there for for high end products so again it's a win for for the american industry and it's a boost for the american economy more about that later this hour in fact max and stacy look closer who really profits most from trade wars in the late edition of the cards the report does say that's bit later on. a subject is totally different now you can see that on the shelves of any british newsstand men's magazines with pictures of near naked women plastered across the cover now though two problem feminist groups are calling from to be removed from public sight or face the legal consequences of his poly boy has got the story.
3:13 pm
you're allowed mags it's a booming industry aimed at young men featuring lots of pictures of scantily clad women here in britain you can buy them in your local high street shop well that could be about to change because two feminist groups armed with the support of several prominent british lawyers say that leaving magazines objectify women and could underpin harmful to choose that could lead to discrimination reasons violence against women so that schooling on high street retailers to stop selling the publications if they don't they say they risk being suitable raftsman by customers on self-worth has a light but can you really be harassed by an anonymous old jacked sure they rank hotness of naked ladies and features chauvinist jokes but would removing them lead the line of censorship we hit the streets of london to find out what the public think choose a model and getting paid for what she's doing and which i did and more and more
3:14 pm
guys are in those pictures and well it's not just girls i post you can be all quiet and see things just the culture that we're in though i don't i don't like seeing them if i walk into my is happening before i walk into my local news agency and i've seen like just boots everywhere and i have asked them to turn them over and ask me to put them higher i don't want to see should be a choice i don't think is harmful is what i mean it's for certain kind of person who reads that so it's really fun to press whether it's political or images or whatever within reason obviously there's a legal issues. is a dangerous is a dangerous route to go down editors on the readers of a lad mags they're up in arms their argument against removing them is simple since the magazines became popular in the mid one nine hundred ninety three incidents of domestic violence in the u.k. have actually gone down and if lads' mags a deemed to be harassment then how long before fashion magazines and imus rising images deemed to be harassment as well and what's to stop men from being offended by pictures of naked males also on the covers of other magazines playboy carry on
3:15 pm
the. london. and so the argument rumbles on still to come a nuclear power plant that can withstand a plane crash but it's the locals the proving to be the toughest challenge as we report. in india much to the plan but it's got a lot of hurdles to get through before it gets online that story coming up to a city of contrasts found inequality jerusalem's arabs accuse israel of deliberately keeping them in poverty after the break as well. with. technology innovation all the developments from around russia. the future. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something

3:17 pm
anti-government protesters who were hurling stones and fireworks in the city's sultan ghazi district it follows the prime minister's belligerent speech where he demanded an immediate end to the unrest and accused the movement of vandalism and provocation and made to investigate excessive police force against activists ready to a bedouin said that they would be treated more harshly if there were any european state nationwide drive against the turkish leadership was ignited by a brutal crackdown on peaceful environmental sit istanbul's taksim square doctors say at least two protesters and a policeman died in the rest which was sparked by the officers attempts to disperse angry crowds almost five thousand people have been injured nationwide foreign policy expert barbara flavin is a senior fellow at the atlantic council she thinks that everyone should stop and rethink his approach towards his own people. this was a small environmental demonstration which turned into something. huge after police used excessive force against the demonstrators it's now spread throughout turkey

and what it showing is that there is a great deal of opposition to heir to one personally and to the kind of creeping islamization that he's trying to promote in turkey it comes just a couple of weeks after he had a trip to washington where he bragged about turkey's economic success and again talked about turkey is a model so i think it has done damage if you look at what's happened to the stock market in turkey to the value of the turkish currency clearly he needs to recalculate i don't think this tough guy approach is going to help turkey we've heard talk about legislation that would limit when people can buy alcohol and consume it in public talk about restricting abortions he's urged women to all have three children a course you know his wife wears a headscarf all the rest there's kind of a question of that. that as well and i think that there are a lot of turks who are still loyal to the memory of auditor and who do not want to have this forced down their throats they want it to be a choice not something that the government tells them to do. well to do it cold
