7:01 pm
for i am in moscow i met reza good to have you with us here on r t our top story chaos spreading across egypt with violent clashes and more tear gas fired at protesters in cairo at least thirty two people including police officers in two football players have reportedly been killed in egypt's port saïd where crowds tried to storm a prison this after twenty one people were sentenced to death accused of stirring up last year's stadium violence in the city that claimed seventy four lives correspondent bill true has more from cairo. the violence continues here in cairo between protesters and security forces on the cornice by the nih and this happened after protesters decided to move the demonstration from tahrir square to the parliament building then security forces responded with quite a lot of tear gas the air here in downtown cairo is really stinging even at this time to it's very hard to breathe when you're outside meanwhile the situation is
7:02 pm
definitely escalating import the death toll goes up every hour and over three hundred injured the army are still on the streets apparently they've managed to secure the area around the prison where the twenty one defendant to possibly facing the death penalty are being housed but we are getting calls from hospitals for more blood they need blood for the injured and also medical supplies where the president was supposed to be traveling he canceled his travel plans as the situation developed in port sayit he met with his national defense council to discuss the growing crisis across the country will be said is they may resort to a state of emergency in some of the areas that are the most violent we've also asked for a dialogue with the opposition you for the opposition's part the national salvation front they've released a statement with five demands calling basically for a new national salvation government to take over they've also said they would consider boycotting the parliamentary elections which would do you in april and for
7:03 pm
also asked for an early presidential elections what they're saying is basically they don't believe that president mohamed morsi is the just minutes and he's not on any of the demands of the revolution and should therefore step aside. for the latest information from cairo where bella's are self been affected by tear gas you can follow her latest tweets on twitter as well true. mark glenn a journalist for the american free press says the most recent violence in egypt is over more than just discontent with the verdict. you know people on the ground there who are genuinely emotionally driven for these things but you know these kinds of delusions they don't pop up just overnight they take years of planning and a year or so of all sorts of preparations in order for these things to take place and yes there's a lot of frustration on the streets in egypt have just gone through turbulent
7:04 pm
period where on employment is really high it's really difficult for families to feed themselves and certainly this lends to the press ration on the street but in general i cannot help but to but to think back to the hundreds of news reports that were coming out of egypt talking about how do you hear troublemakers on the ground there who were being directed and guided by western intelligence services just having it happen so they can put pressure on morsi and on his government in order to agree to certain demands that the united states and israel are making and that the u.s. doesn't necessarily have to come forward and say oh yes we were in support of these people egypt was at the forefront of the pro-democracy uprisings in the middle east the us supported the revolts hoping barack obama's promise of change for the region might bear fruit but after way vendi american protests observers say much of the hope his famous cairo speech tried to inspire has been dashed artie's policy or takes a look i've come here to cairo to seek
7:05 pm
a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world would have promised the field of region with hope. but as a bomb a begins his second term in office his critics failed him on a first term that fell far short of expectations of progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stalled the promised economic development of afghanistan never took root. and american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't fifty the u.s. and eligible community has more or less thought that it was in control of something called the muslim brotherhood and they brought them from egypt into saudi arabia and i think they thought they could just break out of oz it all they could have. asked are was or are there fights now that i'm not leaking oil also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance to build security entry and rights but the fallout from it ended
7:06 pm
with the death of the american ambassador and three other members of his staff the united states was overselling their so-called triumph over al-qaeda in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it was essentially setting the united states up for situations where al qaeda elsewhere was still not just strong but getting stronger and was getting stronger because of policies that the united states had followed and it was washington's politics that did little to win palestinians over to obama's side washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not surprising palestinians i would say that the people in general. stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do. us any favor or any good we realize that
7:07 pm
all our expectations which were very high turned out to be zero as a matter of fact islamophobia inside the united states is on the increase helped in no small part of by the growing negative portrayal of the muslim world in the media and hollywood recent polls show overall confidence in obama has dropped especially in muslim countries we were declined by nine percent in three years global approval of his international policies is also decreased from a positive rating of thirty four percent in the muslim world in two thousand and nine to just fifteen percent in two thousand and twelve obama came just to beautified the ugly face that bush left it's american interests that lead american presidents the only difference is that while one president smiles the other doesn't and the american system and the american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not that that's not issue it's it is
7:08 pm
a political issue and that's why i didn't have a lot of hope that the arab antipathy has not been softened by obama's support for the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few american presidents have lost a good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as a bomber for him now to a new trust in america he'll have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. loudest thing coming from a historic baikonur cosmodrome of late hasn't been the roar of rockets but instead a spat over their environmental impact kazakstan his demands are now threatening to derail russia's entire space program earlier my colleague spoke with our teacher in a glue show about the dispute. baikonur has been the launch pad for the first soviet and russian space exploration program of course men's first ever space flight took off from that very base but now from that a lustrous past it's facing an uncertain future with speculation it could even be
7:09 pm
abandoned now most cars currently leasing the cosmodrome for a hefty over one hundred million dollars but it's fears of environmental damage that's causing concern for the more specifically they are concerned over the launch of proton rockets which with the fuel tanks which are shared by the craft after liftoff containing traces of rocket fuel which would you believe it is highly toxic but for moscow's point of view is a huge annual rental fee together with the jobs provided to local people make the leasing arrangements a highly positive one for us tonight but just days ago both the russian and foreign ministers tried to gloss over any signs of friction they have assured the media that any so-called space war is not happening and a mutual agreement has been reached for the future between the two countries many people know nasa budget has certainly been slashed by washington although india and china have got surging space programs we know that russia really has the busiest space program in the world that must mean they have some we must have some pretty
7:10 pm
big plans for the near or not too distant future russia does keep its options open first of all the are working on the new cosmodrome which is called of us torch me it means eastern in russian and as you may have guessed it's going to be located in the far east near the border with china and that construction has begun just two years ago and russian space agency has caused most. should have two of its launch pads fully operational by twenty fifteen twenty eighteen at the latest and that will mark the beginning of the most step for the country's space exploration program in decades to the moon by twenty twenty says of course most adding they were. to establish the lunar bases and finish it all off with a manned trip to mars by twenty thirty and if these plans seem too otherworldly to you well they certainly do not look as such to the russian government which has approved the budget through trillion rubles that's roughly seventy five billion

7:13 pm
thanks for staying with us thirteen minutes past the hour now washington looking to beef up the number of drones manning the skies over the u.s. to tens of thousands by two thousand and twenty all the name of national security but another big brother is faith is forcing many americans to search for creative ways to protect their civil liberties artie's i started checking out has more from new york. keeping a close eye on civilians with a little help from drones. in a move approved by congress in seven years the u.s. will help thirty thousand drones monitoring its territory from the air that opens the door for a lot of duces of privacy. from not just the government but corporations and businesses too. in a fight for privacy this new york designer came up with a counter surveillance clothing line intended to shield people from those watchful lenses a burka a scarf and a hoodie are the key garments in the collection this is a garment that's designed to be thermally reflective which means that he bounces
7:14 pm
off it and he does what's use for thermal imaging in particular this technology is used a lot on drones and he would use if there were drones harboring about manhattan anybody who is out on the streets is clearly traceable the idea of this collection is that putting on something like this. music but are. these parts of your body become very hard to detect. from a potential fashion statement to a technology that could eventually be used in rescue operations or even on a battlefield i think or just thing. a market hasn't been addressed yet it's a new area and it's sort of a crossover between tactical and fashion it adds a little extra coverage to the face adam harvey calls his consumer market unfashionably paranoia. if you appear to me and i can see you i'm quite alright with that but if you hear an automated systems and how it becomes
7:15 pm
a little more to your disadvantage because this data can be easily mine tracked and identified another counter-surveillance item in the collection the off pocket for a phone once a mobile device is put inside there are no more signals going in and out the strength of the cell phone signal out of one hundred goes down to zero in seconds the metalized fabric and that acts as a farraday cage to block the signals from the phone adam says this is a faster way to turn off your phone and block trucking since the introduction of the patriot act and since then there's been a large erosion of privacy i would say is not. confined to the us either this is a global problem to start a conversation and make people more aware of the growing trend of surveillance through fashion is adams goal the designer admits the clothing line is not for everybody but those who want to adapt to these new realities could now be a step closer to avoiding the gaze of big brother and stacy if you're going to
