11:01 am
trade and investment world but he joined us for more on that and that's of course. our just after seven pm here in moscow this is artsy with me robert sushi straight to our top story for you political uncertainty and crisis hit greece is dominating the g. twenty meeting in france there were reports that prime minister was about to resign but now it looks like he could even end up as head of a national unity greek government and scrapped plans for a referendum on an e.u. bailout which would ultimately please the global be just hoping to prevent greece from collapsing and then taking the entire eurozone with it and he said now it is and can. very much conflicting reports on whether or not the greek prime minister will in fact resign some people saying because of the pressure at that meeting that
11:02 am
took place on the eve of this summit between angela merkel nicolas sarkozy the i.m.f. and the european central bank telling him his decision to hold a referendum on whether or not to make const to receive another bailout would it was a unilateral they've pretty much reprimanded him he'd been defended the right of his conference and signed the state of their economic situation whether or not they would just stay in the euro zone and now this morning the finance minister of the country already hence that maybe things weren't right as clear within his government as it seems when you came in from the center of the situation to. leaders in the g twenty leaders saying that the referendum sent in fact have a direct effect on the euro in the greek decision so a lot of different kinds of information coming out not just gives you more proof as to how unstable the situation is in terms of the euro crisis and the currency it's been a real mess and greece this week a lot of different reports the prime minister sacking most of his high ranking
11:03 am
military staffs rumors of a coup none of that of course has been confirmed so a lot of people here are biting their fingers waiting to see what happens will the greek prime minister resign or not and then what of course does that mean for the country's stability and the euro originally the agenda was supposed to be very wide at this year's summit basically it was hijacked by this site in development i think it's fair to say in the euro crisis with that said a lot of the emerging economies are supporting there was a brics meeting there president medvedev said that the leaders of those emerging economies agreed that they would come up with their own common strategy towards the girl crisis obviously it doesn't affect them directly as directly as the g. seven per se or most of those european countries but president instead of saying. that russia will support a bailout only for it goes through the i.m.f. but also for years saying that for those concrete solutions to come out of these summits those brics countries the emerging economies have to have more of
11:04 am
a say and that's exactly why the g twenty was created critics saying that those changes haven't how been that the emerging economies haven't their voices haven't been heard as much and that very much reflects the atmosphere of the protests just twenty five miles from here thousands of people in nice protesting you have the occupy movement in the states people out on the streets a lot of people saying that these protests are just going to get worse in the us we see concrete results from these kinds of summits. who's attending the g. twenty summit in russia go away from the summit itself and c g twenty marches are being held on across the french riviera more about an hour gone live while she's done you a bushel who was waiting for us in new so good to see you daniel so what exactly are the people's demands. yes protesters most here at monaco really just down the coast from the g. twenty summit in cannes because monaco is a tax free haven and protesters here are saying that a banker for example who got
11:05 am
a million euro. public bailout can move here and not even pay a single cent in tax on that bonus now world leaders at previous g. twenty summit promise to shut down tax havens or tax paradises as they're known and demonstrators in the fight but no action has been taken on that demonstrators in nicolas sarkozy christine angular moco and barack obama north's have given an alternative summit press conference we've spoken to the fake nicolas sarkozy who says yes we can for a ritual going to his asian the g. twenty is a ritual going to asian for the rich and we does the anything wrong with the world economy at the moment the fake angela merkel says we're quite happy for greece to have a referendum on whether it should have the euro bailout as long as they vote yes considering the fairly vague official statements that are coming out to just down the road in cannes some here have said that this is perhaps a more informative of the two summits if you like it follows protesters in nicolas
11:06 am
sarkozy more strongly but it's rainy and sea coast holding up signs saying the g twenty is chile and we don't want to take any risks those are just really have a new strategy i mean it's a void in the voices that we've seen during previous and it's really marking world leaders showing up the fact that they seem so out of touch with ordinary people's problems at the moment right r.t. that anybody there live for us and that i thank you very much. meantime the eurozone leaders have their eyes on the vast fortunes of fast developing economies like china running if they could actually offer a financial crunch so far though beijing is refusing to invest in a european financial stability fund intil uncertainty surrounding greece is removed and there are some who are concerned that chinese help could come at a high price for europe. alyson china will likely be asking for some major concessions one route for china's funding of the bailout fund would go through the
11:07 am
i am not sure and i am i find now that i am at historically has been dominated by the united states and european powers and developing countries have long argued for greater voting power and more of a voice and i am asked so it's possible that china would demand greater voting powers within the i.m.f. for having its money go through the i'm after the euro zone so that's one thing and that of course would diminish the influence of western powers not and not find another thing that china may ask for is greater opportunities for foreign direct investment into europe and i that means sensually buying companies technology companies and so on in europe and in the last so china will i think you see if china decides to help out the top euro zone in a crisis china will use every bit of its leverage that it can but i'm just a little bit later in our financial group carcer and his co-host so if you look at the current financial problems through the prism of the past if you want to come
11:08 am
little bit later for you this hour. and yoko ono were actually watching the kaiser report during their famous bed in in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine and you see you know this is a unique perspective not very many people look at that shot from that time but as you can see they were also saying all we are saying is let the banks fail and crys their karma at the time nobody thought to look at the full three sixty you have that exactly to look at some of the posters on the wall like make love not now suddenly in the year twenty eleven john and yoko were close they saw john was a visionary he saw the future he knew what was coming. because a report coming your way in about twenty two minutes from now the police have

11:10 am
courts trying to hurt the at the top of the to where it hurts the most in the pocket in the economic sense whether or not this these kind of tactics are going to be repeated at other occupy wall street movements remains to be seen. according to witnesses school east ringed various protesters strongholds throughout the city including a number of abandoned buildings i want some position they attempted to smoke them out using flash bangs and gas to one of the demonstrators but much more serious allegations the police were deploying a rush of bullets reports that at least one person was taken to hospital after being shot a lucy company also there was more. like they're shouting from year after year in reference to egypt where it was forced to. place them on what's going to be the arab spring by the media here and that was one of the biggest inspirations for the occupy wall street movement is that in just many skills the voices along by
11:11 am
the way that we saw certain countries in the middle east north africa occupy force the results in bills countries with the war on terror both by the police officers but again as we report here on the streets of downtown oakland essentially the news of the right you saw the surface tightened around us i'm going to step back here so you can see what's actually oh yes thank you. but in this. rubber security and there's something i think the no silver bullet yet a year in all seriousness. this is this i mean it's fairly nasty actually you can imagine something like that hits me and that's the speed god forbid in the eye but anywhere in the body that could actually hurt. or it was an experience. and you can also reach out and lucy's twitter feed for the latest updates from the city and you can read her description of some of the most dramatic events during the protest. tell us also how the

auntie crew was blocked from leaving the port off of filming a car allegedly plowing into protesters hold ending with a public vote on whether or not to allow the audi crew to pass that much much more on the new season twitter feed where we'll be also read tweeting our tea to school comp. coming your way in just a few minutes find out why social networking sites like twitter and facebook are in danger of becoming a surveillance tool for the british government that's coming your way in a few. hours twelve minutes past the hour here in moscow a russian a businessman picked up brute faces a life sentence after a new york jury found him guilty of agreeing to sell arms to terrorists on conspiring to kill americans he was arrested in thailand in two thousand and eight after a sting operation was a bunch of be extradited to the u.s. i just quite strong opposition from moscow our correspondent marina portnoy has been closely following the story just one day after deliberations began
11:13 am
a jury of twelve handed down that verdict and the verdict is that they found a russian businessman businessman guilty on all the charges that were leverage against him by the united states on those charges include conspiring to kill americans and firing to kill u.s. officials trafficking rocky. it's also he was charged with supplying arms to the revolutionary armed forces of colombia an organization the united states deems as terrorists now this this trial of victor boot went on for about three weeks but his presence here in the united states has garnered a lot of attention as we've been reporting the u.s. fought very hard to get victor victor extradited from thailand to the u.s. over a year ago but that fight with is taking place since mr grant was arrested during a sting operation in thailand in march two thousand and eight. has pled not guilty
11:14 am
on all the charges and he still maintains his innocence his attorney albert diane did speak to the press following today's events that took place in court so this is not the end but he still has a chance that we have a chance to again we can appeal to this judge. that the verdict was rendered against the weight of the evidence and that we could also proceed to the united states court of appeals but we are disappointed at this word now that he's been found guilty on these charges he faces a sentence of anywhere between twenty five years and life in prison. rather says that the u.s. media launched a campaign which ultimately ruin his reputation even well before the trial got underway. even before the court hearing started building news channels and websites practically all the mass media talk of nothing else but it to boot his
11:15 am
name was on the screen. but of course i'm talking there is absolutely no evidence this is what surprised that lawyer who also approved the prosecution could not give any they keep calling her and wanted all over the world because they said everyone's of the him and tried to intimidate the jurors calling him a monster. russia says it wants to bring victor boot back home and insists that his extradition to the u.s. was illegal he was flown out of thailand on a military style operation believed was outside the jurisdiction of u.s. i thought he's our correspondent he got a president of. russia strongly criticizes the u.s. courts decision saying that it's a big question into how lawful was it that the u.s. managed to get rid of all is to in the first place since it was twice that a thai court could not find enough evidence to actually write him then all of a sudden it changed its mind and just a few hours after that it was on a plane headed to the u.s. back in two thousand and ten and the foreign ministry here in moscow says that this
11:16 am
was a result of political pressure applied on thailand by washington it also claims that a negative image has been created around gets the boot and this piece on purpose by u.s. media and all this makes the russia question the u.s. course objectivity at the moment the foreign ministry says that its main goal is to get to dictate back to russia what is your passion for according right to what i mean time investigative journalist and author daniel a student thinks that buddhist being used as a puppet in a political tug of war between washington and moscow. they were to rule as a part of the international who will be and where russia basically is the end game russia is the only nation in the world that actually got us there and up to immediately know it's a russian who plans all the power who will need to actually harbor we've won world government a new world order one world company ltd call it whatever you want them were just an example would be has actually been going against russia's interests across the

a belated hello in surprise protesters in ukraine supporting convicted ex prime minister yulia timoshenko take along pumpkins as they try to storm the country's parliament. i'm. just a few minutes away from the business news here on arts here but for now i the arab league has announced it's reached a deal with syria on easing the country. as long running political crisis the agreement urges them asking us to immediately withdraw security forces from the streets release jailed demonstrators and start a dialogue with the opposition syria also agreed to allow the rights groups and arab league watchdogs into the country but the u.s. still says it wants to see president assad resign independent journalist james corbett says the western focus on syria as part of
11:19 am
a much much bigger gap given the fact that assad so well but at any rate seems to have signed on to be had to deal quite quickly and the fact that it's already been relayed on by the western powers seems to indicate that the empty promises are up all on the side of the nato forces again with the very same forces that were interested in getting into libya so one would have to assume that if there were in any empty promises here it's coming from to the western side and it seems to be just an attempt to really be as a side into something where he'll have to signal each case the obvious answer for me and you know when intervention aside would be key to proceed with the u.n. security council resolution which we can justify further intervention probably of a military sort with syria what we're looking at is the strategic a strategic area which is a perfect place for launching a further result in fewer and i think if if the endgame of this is the rand and syria's the stepping stone towards that. twenty minutes past the hour here in the

stop those things that are undoubtedly social issues and solving that requires walking a fine line between coming down hard on troublemakers and preserving civil liberties for everyone but it's clear that this measure which would cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to enforce could also cost the trust and goodwill of this thing . the operators he says so concerned about the recently party london. i'm just going to check out of some other international headlines for you at this hour over twelve hundred passengers of a ferry a caught fire in the red sea have now been rescued however one person has been confirmed dead at least twelve severely injured the blaze started shortly after the ship left the jordanian port of aqaba on its way to egypt passengers were evacuated on life rafts and other ships that went to the disaster site after the first s.o.s. was most of those on board were said to be egyptian workers returning home for the

11:24 am
many years that russia has been the biggest economy that's outside of the w t o and so eighteen years of these negotiations obligations russia has been close occasionally and has struggled to negotiate with certain big partners such as the usa on other occasions being new members with troubles sealing the deal and also when you have questioned over these eighteen years russia's own desire to always join the w t o publications russia has wanted to protect its own industries and has been dubious about all of the benefits of course over the last few years georgia has been the biggest obstacle and the obstacle is of course not just economic but political as well in nature and the focus is on the two de facto independent breakaway republics it's south of thirty an apology because georgia refuses to recognize these places as independent it's sort of that wanted to supervise the border between these countries and russia it's out of order to access to this
11:25 am
border and this is something that neither russia nor these countries are prepared to give for any deal was negotiated by swiss mediators over the past few months but it's a deal where georgia and russia have accepted so this is really the key step to letting this happen now in terms of the practicalities there's going to be another round of negotiations in about ten days and then if everything is ok by me russia will be a w t o member of this does happen this will be perhaps considered one of the greatest achievements of president of presidency. and other stories it could be game over for greece in the euro after people decide not to back the bailout package in a referendum expected early in december and a warning from france's president sarkozy at the g. twenty summit will do little to reassure the markets which are in hopes on a global effort to combat it. the european package that was announced provided some security at the markets i think most people recognize that what you
11:26 am
need to see from but it's more following up on its own is not going to stop the crisis is a good staunch there's a lot of details that need to be filled in and in particular i think the markets would really like to see if this is part of some sort of. global. reach of what is now a global crisis and it's mostly based in europe right now you see the implications on global so if the g twenty is able to come up with some statements that make it look like the world is supporting europe and i think that would be that would be very positive. let's have a look at the markets now oil prices a mix flight sweetest trading at over ninety two and a half dollars a barrel well branches that one hundred nine dollars about stuff climbed back up on thursday although the european central bank's bond purchases temporary calls of investors to move the dow jones is up nearly one percent twenty three out of its thirty constituents higher kraft food is adding replacer percent while j.p. morgan chase is down twenty seven percent in europe stocks are trading in the black
