2:07 pm
protesters and the police from those images it appears that we've seen on the release actually reaching out against the protesters it appears that they are the hitting and pushing the protesters away and we have had some reports that some of the protesters have been injured they've also been trying to provoke the police themselves by causing fires and again clashing with the police now this is just one element of the nationwide protests that are taking place in france today but also railway workers we have air traffic controllers who are on strike today and public servants and he teaches and some hospital workers there are unhappy with many of the ideas and proposals being put forward by president macaroons government including his pledge to cut two hundred and twenty thousand jobs in the public service over the next five years and we understand that up to sixty percent of railway services are not working across the country but as we've seen already the
2:08 pm
protests on this in a nationwide day of strikes have turned violent here in paris with clashes on the streets the police appearing to be pushing back those protesters who have been provoking them but it does appear that they are using maximum force do that. right it basically with the latest there from france that's how the news is looking so far today we're going to take a quick break more though coming your way in a couple minutes. around the world there's always a battle going on with the central bankers and the commercial bankers always trying to repress the population one way or another recall the global insurrection against banker occupation they've been saying this for years on the shelf so now we're going to look at it from the puerto rican perspective they are similarly being
2:09 pm
oppressed by the overlords of finance and they are reacting in a very specific puerto rico way. well you know the hard thing we've kind of adopted because we were called pirates for so long. i mean they're in this small boat and if you don't harp on sheep and it's standing. up to. the limit of filth to big cold fish already ninety percent of the dot and it won't become a. concept fifteen scoops.
2:10 pm

2:11 pm
no official positions safe was one of the most recognized persons in the country and he was even described as the defacto prime minister jury in his father's rule so it was then held captive for six years before being released last year and made political unrest this is what his lawyer told us about his presidential bid. islam has lots of supporters they are ordinary people there are even those who were against moammar gadhafi back in two thousand and eleven and now they support the views of his son the situation we have in libya now is the result of the destruction of all the state institutions and not only the toppling of the regime forty countries today against libya back then our country was bombarded and shelled all the military and civilian infrastructure was destroyed many civilians were killed and now saif al islam has put forward a comprehensive overview of the situation in libya that's
2:12 pm
a reform project which will bring calm back to libya there are many young patriots in libya now they are so enthusiastic they're not concerned about political affiliations the main thing they care about is a patriotic spirit and they see it in the reforms by saif al islam they view them as an effective tool to fight corruption well after the nato led incursion civil war has raged in libya since moammar gadhafi was overthrown the power vacuum two competing governments and i vying for control of the country the conflict has also led to a massive migrant crisis widespread terrorism as well as violence among tribal militias the lawyer of the or safe life is also still in danger. about saif al islam is whereabouts are kept secret for security reasons as his lawyer i would do everything to protect saif al islam from all anti libyan plots masterminded by the countries interfering in libyan affairs as promised saif al islam will make a speech when the right time comes then everything will be revealed libya will
2:13 pm
return back to its roadmap and become a democratic sovereign state a state where the law will triumph libya will no longer be a country of organized crime illegal migration human trafficking as it is described in the media we will defend the interests of the libyan people will protect its resources which cannot be squandered the libyan people must decide their future themselves. now it's been revealed that the much praised security of the virtual currency bitcoin may have been compromised by the us national security agency classified documents provided by n.s.a. whistleblower edward snowden to demonstrate the efforts by the agency to track down users of the currency something previously thought to be practically impossible in a prank or as the story question what's in it for bitcoin buyers besides the price boom last year when its rate kept go and up people got themselves crypto was to get
2:14 pm
rich but bitcoins have been mooring enthusiastic with something else since long before the twenty seven thing book no central bank control privacy and transaction anonymity i'm sorry this could have all been an illusion you haven't followed snowden or have you. the n.s.a. worked urgently to target bitcoin users around the world according to classified documents provided by snowden so let's look into the national security agency files which caught the eye of the intercepts journalists back in the days when the bitcoin was only worth less than one hundred bucks march twenty third teeing the u.s. was already working hard on tracking down crypto wallet holders and the n.s.a.'s number one priority among the new currencies was bitcoin they did come up with a mysterious tool called monkey rocket and guess what analysts have found value in
2:15 pm
the monkey rocket access to help track down sanders and receivers of bitcoins how much value is the question here that no one will give you an answer to but come on the n.s.a. is almighty when it comes to getting hold of all kinds of data so no matter how underdeveloped monkey rock it was back then the agency could have filled in the missing puzzle pieces using a stunning array of other spying tools the whistleblower suggest with this sort of information in hand putting a name to a given bitcoin user would be easy monkey rock it is also described in the files as a non-western internet anonymization service how many bitcoin owners have so far been tricked by the n.s.a. into using this product that we can only guess there was never trust in the institutions like the n.s.a. ever since know it and originally came out with those revelations
2:16 pm
a lot of the pretense of stopping terrorism but most of the governments want to know what all of their citizens are doing all of the time so nothing really changed reading the latest reports over a block chain and what the n.s.a. is trying to do to track it i'm not surprised at all because when i was never really doubt anonymous and when people were thinking of it as anonymous. those people were proven to be wrong time and time again the core properties of bitcoin are on confiscate all our assets if held properly and censorship resistant value transfer hopefully have unlimited tools will come in the near future but we're not there yet we're in march twenty minutes actually five years since these n.s.a. memos where it said we should do our best to track down bitcoin users were written but the guys at the snooping agency haven't really been wasting time. reporting you with r.t. i'll be back with the headlines intimidates.
2:17 pm
time about e-mail best of the entire you may need them i get it. but then again. carol going to die me buying them my money i mean god. in the mood to do a damn thing for. those who just have been in jail because she said if you want. to . know who by love and actually get at the me i've got to get behind city because the. patient is full of them feeling hopeful and can't think. of going.
2:18 pm

2:19 pm
a single. they have a superman. they start training very young. eight months of intensive school. wraps. and they save lives. the most expensive fish in the world each one is selling for tens of thousands of euros it continues to grow its entire life if it was thirty years old you might have a two ton fish out there and yet they don't get that big today because we're way to good catching. it's only awareness of a much larger mission was once there that was much more widely distributed we have politicians that are in office for a few years they have to get reelected everything is very very short term our
2:20 pm
system is not suited and is not geared for long term survival and that's why we have the catastrophes. russia's ambassador to the u.k. reacts to boris johnson's comparison of the upcoming world cup in russia to be an impact on the hitler in this statement on an acceptable and unacceptable insult to the russian people. also this hour clashes erupt in paris between police and people taking part in a nationwide strike against president reforms and as the son of libya's former leader moammar gadhafi runs for president we speak exclusively to say get off his lawyer. the situation you have in libya now is the result of the destruction of the state institutions not only the toppling of the regime but libya over time back to its roadmap and become
2:21 pm
a democratic state. my. welcome is four pm here in moscow you're watching international our top story this hour the russian ambassador to the u.k. alexander you have anchor has reacted to boris johnson's recent remarks comparing the upcoming world cup in russia to the lympics and the hitler calling it an unacceptable insult to the russian people because all the roads lead to world. quotas and bribes putin's committed why he believes the mockingbirds lives over here so i think the comparison with whom i do these exist is certainly right moscow considers this kind of statements made under the level of the foreign secretary in india we unacceptable and totally irresponsible
2:22 pm
the british government just free to make a decision about its budget situation in the world cup but nobody has the right to insult the russian people who defeated nazis and lost more than twenty five million people by comparing our country to nazi germany. did goes beyond the common sense and we do not think british war veterans including those of the arctic cornwallis would share this opinion. while the former russian officer script was jailed in russia for handing secrets to british intelligence he moved to the u.k. in a spy swap in twenty ten and three weeks ago sickly powell and his daughter were found critically ill in seoul sprayed in a suspected case of poisoning by nerve agent u.k. police expect the probe into the attack to take months however british politicians were quick to pin the blame on moscow britain's foreign secretary went even further to say when these accusations against russia. russians
2:23 pm
as ever responded with denial distortion and delay and that is their tactic. the of the cyber warfare this information middling in european election campaigns to say nothing of election campaigns elsewhere or a general feeling that russia is going to be moved. i want to be very clear that we do not wish to engage in a new cold war i deprecate that term i don't want i remember them of the old cold war that's a p.r. effort on virus johnson's part actually look the british government is not treating this event as a criminal investigation they're using it as an opportunity to spread more bellicose rhetoric against russia and it's up to the accusing party to present their evidence first and then the defense will counter that so britain has
2:24 pm
presented no evidence whatsoever of russia's involvement in this to disappoint. but the russian blame game has extended to into areas once considered perhaps beyond political point scoring a london correspondent. found an educational project that appears to have been perhaps inspired by boris johnson himself what's better than helping the young to try to maneuver the ever tricky world of global current affairs. of the day is an online news service that is used by one in three u.k. schools teachers and librarians from subscribing schools user articles and activities across all subjects for lessons homework research. here's one handed to tory and provided by the service to help educate the young and broaden their horizons talks of putin on mission to poison west ouch and among questions to discuss is putin europe's most dangerous leader since hitler was this gus.
2:25 pm
to help students out topics like the ongoing five scandal where an investigation is still underway are broken down despite this incriminating evidence of international outrage to release monks and everything in case there is confusion still there is a dictionary included which explains the meaning of the words marks surely this teaches you to put things into perspective not the chalk and blitzkrieg are also if you're a military tactic designed to crush the enemy with overwhelming force of a short space of time coincidentally made famous by hitler in world war two just to make it a bit easier to connect the dots brutal assassinations cyber attacks as well of plotting the downfall of western democracy are also laid out as food for thought you decide section let students consider the following questions is putin the most dangerous man in the world did the cold war ever end as well as what impression.

2:27 pm
accident. there is a victim of the car accident and we see what was the car and the car was a british me car let's say a range rover and just imagine that myself or foreign ministry spokeswoman makes a statement that the man was killed by a british made car in a car accident in center of moscow and highly likely a prime minister of prime minister of great britain may be responsible of that murder. is it crazy is it crazy it is crazy. we're not speaking about. attempt to murder or to murder a russian spy in great britain where spinning about attempt to murder a british spy in great britain if he's handed in so russia quits with him he's of zero value of zero importance. go ahead.
