10:02 am
insults into small groups they're chanting various serpents among the slogans like putting on the military regime that has been in power since before which president hosni mubarak was ousted in february they cling on the chain to step down they're also saying that they are weak claims chaffee aspire and for weeks youngsters have been trying to come back to the square but they've been prevented from doing so by the police and the army says it and now that they've that here as you can see behind me they have no intention of leaving the demands really is quite simple they don't believe that the military is any different to the regime of hosni mubarak they are against the trough constitution that this regime supports saying the military when he wants to stay in power even after it hands over to and he made to civilian government and talking to youngsters here that's the way to space expressed by one person i spoke to he said with the chance to the parliamentary elections next nine day it will be the first elections to be held in this person of
10:03 am
our era cares about elections to hell with elections we need to come back to tough to square and finish our way the nation people here we don't believe that this week's elections will be sweet and safe and we'll achieve anything great we've been so much the same as they were under the time of mubarak but what is interesting is that whereas in favorably when that revolution took place the army was much on the side of the people very much a stand a one hundred eighty degree turn in terms of how people view it they feel betrayed by the army and we have witnessed excessive find in some of the worst violence over the last few days in which more than twenty people have been killed the army has been firing rubber bullets it's been firing tear gas all those protests insults also been throwing stones they've also been saying heart attack tells a lot of anger being expressed by both sides against it into protesters earlier they said that they're not going anywhere until the minute he steps down so low in line to see is some kind of showdown and certainly the mood here is incredibly
10:04 am
tense it's incredibly fun it's all just anything could unfold. policy reporting right there from cairo and she is constantly keeping an eye on what's happening there in tahrir square there are live updates all of the unrest twenty four seven on her twitter page or let's have a look at some of the latest tweets right now here on r.t. according to the mood is upbeat it's much less confrontational than it was earlier i was soon it will be dark and who knows what will happen then she also tweets that there are rumors that security forces are using a different type of tear gas we don't sure if that's true or not but people are becoming rather paranoid you can follow paula on twitter for the latest information from kyra. phillips and protesters demand military rulers transfer power to a civilian government however independent online journalist james corbett believes the outcome would put some western powers on edge. what ultimately happened was throwing out a figurehead instead of the actual power structure itself which has been for many
10:05 am
years and continues to be a military dictatorship that egypt really is it may say so and so i think the illusion of democracy is just that until we the underlying power structure that's going on there can be outstanding i don't think anything really has changed and i think ultimately that falls into the type of power politics they get played in in situations like this the people who are watching this from behind the scenes and wondering how they're going to fit into the new geopolitical paradigm rather than what's in the interest of the people themselves that points out the hypocrisy that's been there all along i don't think the west was really and you notice that it was it was a favorite guest of the white house and all of that right up until the time of this type of an uprising in egypt and so i think really what's happening here is that the west saw an opportune time to read off of the move or up in way going in hoping that the power structure would continue in egypt that would mean two hundred status whole new region but since that the stabilization looks like it's going to go even further i think that the people in the powers in western intervention is countries
10:06 am
that are now are now wondering how far this will go and whether it can go perhaps too far for their comfort meanwhile the western powers are concentrated on the situation in syria moscow's accuse the west of stirring up tensions in the arab world by calling for the overthrow of the syrian regime and russia says calls from certain states for the syrian opposition to avoid dialogue with the government are only provoking further violence. this. what we heard from russian foreign minister sergei lavrov today was him reiterating russia's position on the ongoing conflict in syria that position is that they want to see negotiations regime change become the final outcome in the conflict now sergei lavrov called what he called the western calls for assad to step aside and also for the opposition in syria not to negotiate with assad he called that
10:07 am
a provocation saying that that would not bring about peace that would only spur on the opposition to continue the fight for through seeing so far over the last eight months as resulted in three and a half thousand people being killed in that country mr lavrov saying that this international provocation should not happen. in syria we're now seeing a situation where the arab league is calling for hopes of violence and the beginning of dialogue and western countries around the capitals of some countries of the region and making calls to the country expressly recommending the opposition hold no talks with the sad regime it looks like a political provocation on an international scale yes violence has to be stopped but this demand has to be addressed to the authorities and the only groups in the syrian opposition now this isn't the first time they said gill of rover's accuse the west of meddling in the syrian situation though he also suggested that there was a shadowy hand of western governments behind the arab league's decision to suspend
10:08 am
syria from their group last week now. of course the last country to be suspended from the arab league before syria was libya and not the situation in the in libya the what we saw in libya is something that russia really does not want to see happen in syria also the syrian opposition who are here in moscow last week their leaders also saying they did not want to see a civil outcome is what happened in libya where international intervention took place. that straight intervention straying will be on the parameters of un resolutions that will lay down this type of something they both russia and the syrians want to avoid happening in that country. from central moscow when i mean time author and journalist webster tarpley who's in damascus says it's all very simple western powers are behind the violence in syria. the u.s. policy i think right now is to smash the middle east according to ethnic lines
10:09 am
people complained that there are terrorist snipers who are shooting at civilians men women and children and blind terrorism random killing simply for the purpose of destabilizing the country i would not call this a civil war by any stretch of the imagination what you're dealing with here are death squads dealing here with terrorist commandos it's a joint production of c m i six most. of the french asked to libya becoming a bloodbath with one hundred fifty thousand dead and now with egypt showing what it was all along it was no revolution it was a complete failure and now people are beginning to understand it notice that nevertheless mrs clinton and miss rice of the united nations are continuing to push this bankrupt the strategic model of the color revolutions the cia people power coolie back by terrorists so people from al qaeda people from the muslim

brotherhood i've heard this from some very important religious authorities here there's a growing movement inside the islamic community here which is. reconciliation we want law and order we want legality we don't want that fanatics to run the show the fanatics are being brought in by the western powers. turning our attention from syria and egypt about of libya where moammar gadhafi is a fugitive a spy chief one of the last key figures from libya's old regime still on the run has been captured in the country's south and comes just days after cathay son saif al islam was also a court the national transitional council has said that it will not hand saif gadhafi over to the hague tribunal that is about to try him at home for crimes against the libyan people that could ultimately result in the death penalty following the toppling of his father at the end of an eight month civil war and many question. about the regime remain saif is believed to be one of the few who
10:11 am
knows about the death of his dealings with the west but political analyst and author adrian struggle to police that saif al islam will either be silenced by the hague or by libyan authorities. as a terrible choice between being shot or being hanged because if you use judged and tried in libya he might end up very much in the saddam hussein right trial where he will end up being or he will feel one way or the other and if he is extradited to the hague it will not be a fair trial one will of all the other the will silence the son as has any constant throughout history every time somebody survives me. uncomfortable but relations we've also seen and this is all this horrible documents how moammar gadhafi only in the last two years has shook the hands of only a radical barnard no doubt a lot of things were. a lot of very uncomfortable that the regime that information could be given by so long that that's. with r.t.

10:13 am
the popular party may have won sunday's polls but it's highly unlikely they're in for an easy term the reality of the economic crisis in spain means five million people out of work one and a half million households are without a wage earner and if you look at what rate which has shot up to nearly fifty percent this is the repairs the winner will have to deal with but will they really be able to make a difference probably not believe gail allard an economics professor at madrid's i even in a school we're going to have to cut benefits sharply we may have to differentiate among recipients of benefits we may have to live in a program through this could really be. we may be singing the death of the welfare state but most pain years have had enough with budget cuts and empty promises protests by the fifteen m. movement the so-called the dignity marches have been spreading throughout spain since march and many people have chosen not to go to the polls on sunday believing politicians will not help the country i think people have been disappointed with
10:14 am
the choices they have been all through throughout this campaign really for the last couple of months at least because i think they feel that there isn't a great deal of difference between the two candidates in terms of what they were to and it seems there is no easy way out of the current economic downturn in fact some of the minorities in the parliament believe spain is an ambitious circle and. it's all policies are being dictated to in brussels the elections will help in creating more jobs it will be the opposite public expense will go down people's purchasing power will go down but it will mean fewer investments and that translates into unemployment. and though there may be new faces in the scottish government they will have to deal with the old problems in much the same way meaning nothing is likely to change for spain already tired of the economic catastrophe in the country it even goes with trade. and more money matters are being chewed over on our website at art's dot com for example our economists predict the fall of the u.s.
