is now holding talks to form a temporary governing coalition after narrowly surviving a crucial confidence vote in parliament but george papandreou is far from secure following a week of intense criticism after announcing and then withdrawing a referendum on the e.u. bailout conditions firth is in athens for us. it was a week where we thought everything it could have changed and yet we've wakened this morning at the end of the week see that everything remains the same at least for the time being we saw a prime minister passenger and his government narrowly managing to survive that confidence mission in parliament yesterday one hundred fifty three votes for one hundred forty five against it was very very close but then it was always going to be it's been a week of gymnastic decisions i just want to show you the front page of one of the great newspapers here are the headlines saying the politicians play with fire and that's really very much the sense that you get from a lot of the people here and it's not just the people it's the politicians as well this was the message that was sent to the year is
7:02 am
a need is this week and it was one of uncertainty because we began the week of course with the announcement from prime minister passenger a about the possibility of a referendum on the easy bad out plans now we were in parliament last night to listen to his address to the m. case to try to save his political career he did hint that he might be willing now to step down from the place are still a very realistic possibility he said he didn't care at this point whether or not he was reelected he's meeting with the president of the republic to discuss his cause for the new coalition government but a lot of confusion surrounding just what this coalition is going to look like because the heads of the main opposition party rejected the coups for a coalition so we're going to have to wait and see now whether passageways going to be able to pull off forming some kind of unity government without them or whether they're now going to have to be included into another possibility a lot of people here are talking about is having a will still resign and then someone from his own party could step up into that
7:03 am
spot right now what was interesting last night was that the last person to address the m.p.'s was the finance minister in venice well us here a lot of people saying that is the hint that perhaps he could be the next one for the future that both lists. about mid december they gang need that next tranche before they run out of cash and now that was really one of the big things and the focus of a lot of the talks yesterday was that these calls the snap elections really a lot of the politicians felt that if elections and happen j. himself that if elections are going ahead that by the time they finished the country would be bankrupt they really are trying to ram three anything that needs to be done to get this final bailout chanche of course this was the focus of the year is a need is the meeting of the g. twenty over the last couple of days with allies on greece the focus is also turning now to italy if you see a country like italy start to get the same way as greece and really
7:04 am
a lot of people feeling that that's game aver amongst the greek people here certainly as feeling of disappointment at a time when they really needed to show unity and solidarity and we really haven't seen out there in fact if anything people say what they seen from climate prime minister happen j. is a very uncertain unpredictable leader all speculation that greece will have to exit the euro zone is growing along with the country's debt levels but great economist yanis varoufakis says if out this leaves the impact will be felt across the region . mr suttles and mrs merkel said that if you're ever and what is outside no to the agreement of brussels that last week we will interrupt this to be an old good result and in fact the rule with us on this is a non-critical threat because there is absolutely no way legally to do that because it and secondly financially economically if any member of that unit so evenly build because he's thrown out the whole of the eurozone perhaps it's this is not
7:05 am
a greek this is a good as in practice which is being felt the most harshly in greece because greece is that we believe of the problematic chain this inability of the eurozone to deal with this crisis is symptomatic of its state of denial about this being a systemic crisis and think it does and as long as the eurozone remains in the state of denial the euro will be history before too long and we need grumbles then the rest of the global economy is going to be seriously significantly negatively affected. police in the u.s. are intensifying the crackdown on all compiled wall street protesters across the country scuffles broke out in washington when police moved in to arrest activists there an officer shoved a protester to the ground while making arrests three people were detained and earlier a peaceful protest descended into violence in the california city of oakland which also left another army veteran badly injured the second such incident in as many

very serious crime or violence these activists say they do take reports to the police some media outlets have also learned that it is actually new york city police officers some at least that have encouraged criminals and people to come down to do coffee part in an effort to stir up some trouble the n.y.p.d. has denied those accusations we did speak with a few of the hundreds of activists that are down here and here's what they had to say my experience in. it's been that i've been safe here and i feel safe here but i think that you know the mayor is just got things things quick time that aren't haven't been reported what are those kinds that you think the mayor is probably gearing up to make another attempt to. turn the park simply because someone walks into the park doesn't mean that they're part of the movement a lot of these out with that even critical of us characterize anyone who is within you know a mile radius of this place as
7:08 am
a protester and therefore reflective of our movement but as you can see anyone can come in here and that's fine you know we want to welcome people in but certainly because someone's destructive doesn't mean they reflect what we're doing or that we promote what they're doing princeton professor and activist up there cornell west who's been a huge supporter of the occupation movement was down here in zuccotti park r.t. had a chance to catch up with him to get his thoughts on what mayor bloomberg has recently said i just think the rome bureau they did try to come up with a rationalization without a convincing reason do you think there's anything criminal about you know dangerous about this encampment that anything i think every section of new york city has a day then. what it is they have a human community every every human community had something still supporting oh my god yes one hundred twenty was it overall though all the activists that we have spoken with today say they feel as safe today as they have felt since day one of these occupy wall street movement they say the momentum is growing bigger it's

7:23 am
consider too much money this week let's talk about that more than a million too much money yeah if someone has more than a million should they pay more in taxes yes they absolutely said yes well i want too much money so i'm not going to answer. those ten million in two months to emerge for too much one when the limit when millions enough to have it would say if people make more than a million dollars and they have better in their bank account should they be forced to give back a more of their a marlins out in general interestingly i saw once that the to answer the question do you have enough money to curve goes like this as your wealth increases so people who don't have a lot feel that they don't have enough as they as people get wealthier a higher percentage of the think they have enough until they passed a certain point whereas as you get even wealthier you want even more so if you made ten million dollars i would give some of it away it's too much money are people
7:24 am
that don't give it away and have that much in the wrong i guess it's a personal decision i just think that if you make that much money you could share it with someone that doesn't have so much should they be forced to through taxes like they do in scandinavia maybe so because sometimes if you don't force someone to do something and are going to do it no matter how much wealth you consider to be obscene the bottom line is when it comes to money it's hard for anyone to not want just a little bit more. more than a five hundred days in isolation all to test mankind's metal for a mission to mars russia's ambitious simulated round trip to the red planet has concluded testing how a crew michael on a long space wife and it was all done without leaving moscow artie's peter already been following the mission and hearing reaction from the volunteers themselves. after five hundred twenty days of russian history proud we are proud today to to

that was the start of the five hundred twenty day which ended when i watched them the door open at last after all that time and the crew emerged little bit white faced a little bit bleary eyed into work and to a cheering crowd after all that time they all stood together in front of microphones and they said how glad they were to work with their other crew members and to have got through what is really quite a feat of an jurors really to be in relation and with a very strict routine day in day out for all the time i remember seeing the some bookmakers have put eight to one of us on that one of the crew going insane as a result of this experiment that hasn't materialized and i think they can now look forward to the deep brief period free of all those tensions. and later martin andrews explores how the russian capital is becoming more turf. stand while a friendly for those looking for a bunch of bad for the night. now
