a veteran sea junior songe as a war resister during a scientist on important work over the last few years he's responsible for the release of the collateral murder video which shows. the true nature of the war in iraq in the video where the apache gunship she's dead reporters on and goes back for seconds and shoots up the van. the afghan war logs an iraq war logs veterans lot myself in afghanistan and seeing what's actually happening over there you know we talk about killing. and theft of resources from those countries when we come back to this country the bush record in the press and shown on the news doesn't match up with our own personal experiences so you sense we believe that this entire case is politically motivated related to our founders work with wiki and i think there is great the pressure of junior saunders might seem very powerful enemies in the last year the cable guy releases i think with the last straw as far as the
7:04 am
american governments are concerned. so you have to ask the question if this was a private individual who was at the head of wiki leaks and was facing allegations and that's all he's facing these allegations in sweden would this whole process have been going through with this whole reduce amount of money be spent on actually doing someone who wasn't head of wiki leaks and i think the answer to that question is no and i saw this team has repeatedly said in the past are they not so much recently that they fear if he's extradited to sweden the next step is extradition from there to the u.s. do you believe that that could happen person possibility julian could also get actually died from this country to the u.s. i think what's going to what's happening at the minute is. to fight this legal battle is distracting him from important work and important work is shining the truth in light of truth on what really happens in iraq afghanistan what our government is really too but what i actually cannot sue and of course the important work has been undermined by this and wiki leaks is on its knees literally and i found itself says it may have to place in the new year that they're bankrupt and
7:05 am
thanks very much for talking to us now we are expecting the developments here at the high courts as julian i thought has to make his statements to this so old fashioned media scrum that's assembled outside it will be bringing you more through the day in the lower we can see all the press behind you there in central london you're on standby we're on standby as well as we expected you to make his statement following this latest with many things. with r.t. now over ten thousand people have marched in need to protest against the g twenty summit that will kick off on thursday further down the coast in cannes the crowds angered by the current financial system and reinforced by the global occupy movement demanding that governments focus on people rather than corporations as artist daniel fishel reports this time world leaders will find it even harder to ignore the arkwright. g twenty host frank says he wants the summit on its
7:06 am
picturesque mediterranean coast to reflect the importance of even merging nations in the world but this financial crisis deepens in both the u.s. and european union economists self interest behind that noble claim less to involve more russian economy is really to try to convince those right economists to put money on the table to. unsustainable currency union of europe in the first place developing countries which still the west quick to back civil unrest among their population they will see those same whiston countries coming down hard on public movements in the room. and she was like to describe. the primary powers within the g twenty the united states germany britain france the real economic and military powers they want to show a world order and a system of states that still has the ability when in fact there is instability this summit is an attempt to put out i shine a face on what is really
7:07 am
a failed system there's a scene of chaos not just from the side of protesters but also from the police because there's helicopters overhead at the moment you can hear police sirens also the police really have mounted this military style operation to shut down and stop any of the protesters going where they don't want them to go one former diplomat says western leaders can't continue to just block criticism this whole idea that. they can simply ignore protests against what's happening could come back to bite the leaders of the g seven energy twenty summit this protest different from summits of the post was bill james dixie of the latest western bank to get bail dealt with public money growing numbers here worry there's something fundamentally wrong with the current setup we have basically a financial system where corporations and financial institutions are able to write themselves favorable legislation quick. pro quo will be a corporate lobbyist police roadblocks all demonstrators getting from east to the
7:08 am
nearby town of cannon with a g. twenty takes place but it's becoming ever holder to stop world leaders hearing the voices of protest. you all see me sprawls all the russian president will be taking part in that french summit with russia having its own outlook on how to overcome the financial crisis we caught up with his aide at a car he'd what a corporate try head of the fed is a quick preview of that interview that is coming your way next hour here on what's the. result this kind of. face much more difficult consensus so financial turmoil of the in two thousand take anything from conversations are too formal for those kinds of decisions especially given the differences in. the traditions and for use of the on various nations mostly united states and china phone conversations
7:09 am
they need to stop the show there to get them. and some kind of compromise or delicious. and if you are next hour here on our team now greece will hold a referendum on the latest e.u. bailout deal calls by the country's prime minister has received unanimous support from his cabinet george packages and elsewhere started european because it also came as a shock to the greek government with some members calling for the prime minister to resign eurozone leaders agreed to write off fifty percent of the greek debt things more loans in exchange for yet more austerity measures and. a financial adviser and our own wealth management says if the greeks vote against the bailout appeal it's the signal of the end of the euro zone. this may well finally bring it to a head i think the europeans have been patching things up and patching things up and it's now getting to a crunch point and the deal that was reached last thursday was was
7:10 am
a nothing deal really because it doesn't address the fundamental issues that there is too much sovereign debt in the u.n. it's unsustainable in my view the best the best option for the greeks is to default of course that there is much bigger than actual consequences for the for the rest of europe and for the rest of the world if that happens but if we're talking about what is in the best interest of the greek people then then then that's probably the best outcome but if a truly great defaults then you have to look at who actually owns the debt and that's principally owned. by other sovereigns by the e.u. and by by the banks and pension funds and the consequences of that is that it would make the financial system the banking system much less stable and the worry is of the snowball effect and how they would pay the banks and then other european
7:11 am
sovereigns and whether that would then lead to further defaults in a number of sovereign defaults the same time. and on our website r.t. dot com we're asking what you think lies behind the greek prime minister's a surprise decision to hold a referendum on the bailout. let's see other members of your nazi nearly forty percent of you think the greek pm has made a wise step to let the population have to say about a third believe the move is just pure populism to quell protests but the rest are all rather split between those two options here as you can see whether the decision is a night in the e.u. . i was looking for a pathway to an honorable retirement you log on to watch your com have your say but are without greece already up to its neck in economic and political turmoil it seems you have another crisis is just around the corner but we are of course. and see immigration sentiment is reaching a boiling point adding to the existing beautiful austerity anger and desperation also. carson markets are gaining about one percent this hour but
7:12 am
the dominant sentiment is still fear over the fate of greek bailout package one business in about ten minutes. here with r.t. let's go back to our top story now here in the state aviation committee has revealed the crew applied the brakes during takeoff causing a plane crash in russia that killed forty four in september investigators say the crew had little flight experience in that particular model of aircraft and that this inexperience could have caused the fatal mistake but the second pilot also showed traces of a strong sedative in his system but the findings also said that the pilot was suffering from a condition that affected his movement and coordination the forty two crashed in september killing most of the looking motif russian hockey team. our correspondent. has been about press conference about the whole plane crash are updating us via twitter tweet tweet you can see right here she describes
7:13 am
a horrifying video simulation of a just leveled plane crash which doesn't feature the voices of the pilots she will be joining us just for little bit later today. the u.n. nuclear watchdog says it has discovered a secret facility in northwestern syria that matches the design of a u. raney an enrichment plant by the findings have raised suspicions that the syrian government has been trying to produce nuclear weapons patrick case a reporter for the independent online and because in spite so is the international atomic energy agency has assumed a political role and should not be playing it's really important to stress here is that no one is actually saying that syria is on the verge of developing a nuclear bomb or nuclear missiles what they're expecting at the moment is what is now a cotton printing plant to some extent it shows just how these going to be institutions which are normally independent from the united nations like the international atomic energy agency based it shows how political they actually are i also think
7:14 am
yes this is a way of keeping more pressure on syria during a time when the uprising to taken place i think it really brings about the worst of both worlds in many way it brings about kind of western intervention in a very insidious kind of i would say dishonest fashion basically to what we did in iraq which is use the guise of inspections so we can basically poke their nose into all areas of countries that are seen to be a bit suspicious a bit dodgy all the only kind of international sphere they want to appear to be you know the kind of the new bogeyman they can focus their attention upon. authorise action out of libya where the newly elected prime minister says that protecting human rights will be top of his government's agenda but his statement is in contrast to activists claims that n.t.t. fighters are terrorizing displaced residents of a coastal town once loyal to gadhafi fred abrahams from the human rights watch says
7:15 am
that current atrocities are being downplayed by the libyan government and indeed some nato countries. but in some places the violence is quite bad the town we looked out in was called told and the militias from the neighboring town of misrata are terrorizing the people of to where they accuse them of having fought for qaddafi and you know the problem here is that the militias are not under the control of the political authorities the civilian authorities and vats the big challenge for libya going forward is bringing the many militias under a unified civilian command the problem is that the money militias hundreds of militias sometimes from just a neighborhood have many weapons now and they say look we fought we lost comrades in this battle and now we want to have a stake a seat at the table and bringing them under control will be difficult there's definitely a trend to say we did the right thing meaning nato governments they want to say
7:16 am
that this was a successful operation so there is a tendency to downplay the conflicts and the tensions now but at the same time in our discussions with them of some of these governments they're taking them very seriously because they know that this will cause problems in the future they want them addressed now trying to support the more open minded and democratic minded forces within the new authorities and move libya in the right direction so there is concern and i think that the governments are nervous about this these tensions they were avenge and they're trying to to take steps to to quell it. that's libya and the wider region undergo drastic changes we will continue to examine the role of foreign intervention in the arab spring now we have all the updates and analysis on our facebook page and there's a heated debate going on there right now in the comments section i want to join in and have your say i just find us at facebook dot com slash our team.
