the top stories of today and of the week it is the weekly with me rule resewn show welcome to the program today. talks on iran's nuclear program have failed to produce an agreement but hope remains there could be one in the future while the world powers tried to push ahead france revealed itself to be the most skeptical in the west and ultimately refusing to accept any short term deal. reports on the meetings or stumbling blocks the three days of talks here high level talks that it started off with a lot of optimism had ended with essentially no deal so we know that the nature of these talks were very important in the sense that the ministers who were here in town had dropped it changed their schedules in order to come here and join us. so
the a lot of speculation is that a deal might be reached but in the end it didn't come to have to pass a law five you said the foreign minister of france was one of those who really was vocal about his reservations on b. initial text presented and the was in detail one of those the rest of the nations would be the stockpile that there's talk of iran as well as the reactor that's scheduled to open sometime next year in iran he said he was not satisfied that he wanted something an agreement that was serious as and also he had sent something like he was not ready to get involved in a calm gave and this had angered lawmakers in iran we were saying that if he really was going great the talks and had blamed france even those calling it blackmail on terror but what's interesting is when the e.u. foreign policy chief catherine ashton as well as if we're going to serve iran they would have came in coming here to give their press conference they were kind of upbeat and they were hopeful about the next round of talks scheduled for november the twenty years and i'm sorry fred said that he was disappointed and that he
understood that something like this there would definitely be there would definitely be differences among the different. had taken quite a different turn from what was expected when we were hearing statements coming from foreign ministers of the u.k. i will give her a say that we should seize the moment and trying to come up with a very elusive deal but in the end indeed there is no deal that has been reached but again talks will be rescheduled on the november the twentieth and some of the main sticking points on the table were a reactor that iran could possibly use to produce weapons grade nuclear fuel and how relief would proceed let's take a closer look at the deal negotiators were attempting to put together first according to some sources the six world powers want to iran to stop all activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent iran would also be obliged to limit the number of centrifuges and allow more monitoring of the facilities in return world powers
would unfreeze some of iran's assets and perhaps ease sanctions that have a ultimately crippled its economy earlier on today we talked to a. former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team if things are despite the french resistance to iran at the end of the day has played its hand rather well. it was the singular contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the process and managed to sabotage did deal basically there's a very a strong pro israel lobby in paris and you know there's a causal relations between paris and tel aviv there's no doubt in anyone's mind that the team came with good intentions with a detailed proposal and prove their good faith in their negotiations is nor died in my mind and minds of a lot of other people including millions in iran that a lot of the responsibility for the absence of
a deal tonight rests on the shore of the french government before the talks began on first day thousands were rallying in the iranian capital charging death to america and burning american and israeli flags despite iran's new leader pushing for a nuclear agreement many of the country are simply enraged by their government's dealings with the west scott now interest rates. yes argile movie islamic republic of iran is ready to engage immediately in time bound take the talks to build mutual confidence and the removal of mutual uncertainties hassen rouhani as recent speech at the u.n. general assembly was said by many to represent a thorin in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is keen to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is king for this to happen. hard line conservative protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran and now those
uncomfortable with the idea of increased diplomacy with washington have launched the first ever down with the usa contest the idea is to find the most creative anti us propaganda contestants are invited to submit photographs posters caricature poems hymns and blogs all relating to the slogan down with the usa over three thousand dollars are up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark the death of america which will renewed the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. while the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution when the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now favor hollies willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy with
a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject to the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like the and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states. not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the us government to suggest these sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent years on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to empty american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down postcards r.t. . still to come here on r.t.
rest recuperation and didn't definite. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do smiles on sunshine stealing the show at guantanamo bay with no end in sight for the u.s. military base where hunger striking detainees continue to be force fed behind bars . i thank for joining us here on r.t. today yet another diplomatic scandal blew up in the faces of european officials this week it's all after a british newspaper reported the u.k. is operating a secret listening station in but when to spy on the german allies equipment housed on the u.k. embassy roof is believed to be able to intercept communications across german officials are investigating the claims and that while their hands are already full with reports the german chancellor's mobile phones being tapped by american intelligence and european parliament member paul murphy admits there will be
a diplomatic fallout but no political interests will be shelved amid it. germany and britain are both in the european union together they are meant to be part of a common political project and so it's more difficult for them to express the open and tiger doesn't that doesn't exist it does put at the same time that i think this is going to have consequences it will deepen the divide between the. britain as represented by the government within germany. there really is historic difference there with britain more representing an atlanticist view of the european union obviously being part of the so-called five together with the u.s. you know u.s. led was counted a strain in new zealand and britain whereby they spy on others but supposedly agree not to spy on each other i think actually what would happen is that there's an attempt would be an attempt by the governments to so madi express and give voice to the anger. felt by people but then to try and put
a lid on it because if you look at what's happening between the the e.u. with the us i mean there is words of criticism but then both sides want to get on for example with the free trade agreement between the two in the us because they see it as being in the interests of big business from both sides. in a world where everyone is spying on everyone else in important spoke to one individual who has created a snoop free online safe haven. we decided to open a data center and here we're taking an exclusive tour through one of the few data companies standing up to the u.s. government in the name of privacy i think we do residential access very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission and independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this tower here handles most of our e-mail unlike most power players in silicon valley x. mission refuses to give the n.s.a. backdoor access to its networks since nine hundred ninety eight x. mission has rejected a judgment of u.s.
government for more information stored on private servers like these we don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant the majority of law enforcement requests ashdown says he's received and refused have been subpoenaed is lacking accountability and necessary approval by a judge this is actually an amiga since launching his company in one thousand nine hundred three ashdown says he's filled no more than two customer data requests from the federal government. on the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have spent years secretly working with the n.s.a. regulation government contracts and. monetary. compensation are in my opinion the three reasons why they're cooperating ironically utah is probably the most unlikely home for
a privacy champion roughly twenty seven miles away from x. mission. is the n.s.a.'s newly constructed one point five billion dollar data center i think it's a stain on the tech industry of utah all the n.s.a. activities are a stain on american internet businesses ashdown has vowed to face jail time if that's what's needed to protect his customers from being monitored what surprises this fourth amendment advocate. is that big data companies like google won't promise to do the same marina port i r r t you tell. or are now sharing the olympic spirit with outer space or the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games it's been taken on its first first space walk artie's lindsey franz was at mission control to witness the event. well it's a very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking because we're
not through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand so it's a again a leg of it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the ninety six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of a shuttle or inside of the eye is that so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cost minutes and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world now the torch has a couple more days left on the i assess before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on the soyuz spacecraft again and so it's then going to rejoin this historic relay to saatchi for the kick off in february of the olympics so we will be bringing you all the live developments of the olympic torch right here on
r.t. . so who is the most beautiful of them all you can find out which of the eighty six contestants was crowned miss universe right here in moscow that glamorous story coming your way in just a couple of minutes. we speak your language as i mean some of the worn out of. your programs and documentaries in spanish what matters to you. a little turn the. story. here to. the spanish find out me visit to add a dud. this is the.
shoes that no one is there with to get but. this is from. it is a quarter past the hour. now the death toll from the devastating typhoon haiyan that swept across the philippines could exceed ten thousand that's the fear of local officials among the worst hit areas the city of from where survivors are
saying the scenes are horrific earlier the red cross confirmed twelve hundred people had been killed by the siphon which is the strongest in history to hit the region that's moving towards vietnam where thousands are being evacuated from coastal low lying areas. are also following tucker. and get the latest reports on death and destruction. and more than a dozen detainees continue a grueling hunger strike at guantanamo bay with no deadline for their release or the closure of the u.s. military prison. i went behind the barbed wire to find out how deeply entrenched the multibillion dollar facility is. despite misconceptions give lho is not just a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere. full of signs of the stablished american life it is
a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonalds on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell you got busted vested financial interests that you got pizza starbucks and. all of these other places that helped to set up a logistical support for the troops that are all over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s. government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract so when territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand nine hundred fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two
to three years far from home life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people where you can certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to you know there's the don't tell an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and a ticket bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we actually get quite a bit of time off like a tsunami and we go to be an end of year as our activities for people to do m.w. are stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get well on state of the art facilities. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do. being in a remote location doesn't even have to affect eating habits an all you can eat lunch cost just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price
a downside though information or lack thereof or just a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the beast dubbed no stream a stand by some soldiers even so we're told those serving here are banned from looking at websites like wiki leaks for example once classified always classified. even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently the life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here
were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time i was going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual milicz and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges and party guantanamo bay cuba. and to cairo egypt deposed president mohamed morsi along with fourteen muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see it postponed until january the ousted
leader is facing charges of encouraging a deadly crackdown on dissent last december now this footage coming to you here is from the opening of the hearings the first video all of mohamed morsy since his arrest for my. ago he refused to wear the mandatory white uniform for defendants he rejected the court so authority insisting he's still the country's legitimate leader and during his transfer to prison the police had to face off against angry probe morsi morgues. true reports from cairo. the. grammy it is known as the sting of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and now despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi romney has little hope for egypt's future as mostly goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters. for the revolutionaries and now in the worst scenario we have ever been since two thousand and eleven morsi should be tried but it's comic that mubarak trial should be held
up at every turn while the morsy trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases of remnants of the former regime to risk where once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other missing brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against a brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security
apparatus continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is in transition and so on and forth and so on interest again and again the problem now that we need to send. and agree on a specific transitional justice even if you're turning everyone on meaningful we're taking the route to the south africa bureau and many many other that distract from evil seizure that seems far away as pre-move protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is more sees trial will not deliver much did justice to egypt but rather set the stage for further instability and turmoil. for r t cairo. this week of the global protest movement anonymous held a million mosque march and hundreds of cities across the world they brought together those concerned with online privacy corporate greed g.m. foods and other causes as well my colleague andrew farmer spoke with american activist greg he believes what's right isn't always what's legal. one of my big
pushes with all of the kind of real world stuff we've been doing not the online stuff for me has been to get more people what i like to call activated get more people out there just doing something you know i don't even care what you believe i want you on the streets telling people about it in getting things done so i think this type of event is going to just help to get more people active in the system and i have a feeling that more people active in the system can only be better for the people do you feel anonymous might actually alienate people because you talked about the protests there which is fair enough but also they do hack websites and people could legitimately say when i actually is not a criminal offense to be want to be part of this there's a distinction there you call it criminal but you know what's right and what's wrong is not exactly in line with what's legal and what's the legal and so it's really up to each individual to decide just how far they're willing to go with their protests . and so good to have you with us or not to you today the collets and the glamour
in moscow soaring to a whole new level eighty six of the world's top beauties competed for the title of miss universe parties katie pilbeam was there. the cd that went to that seed has been won by me that it was that we had is that the twenty five go to the right you see was the case and i know you like the wind and the system and the scene was just using the that's not the sequence as we speak about. b. c. c. b. a c. e. i think contest nights where that we see those they get all the dates moved up i knew you had let's three of them and that was the lead in the. beastie boys who's still in the scene of getting back to see if indeed i like the late eighty's is that it that we not only did the we had this even kind of the areas up on the stage
coming the strings was i think that was it by the way by that the only night this competition is watched by one billion people from i didn't see countries like that. all right thanks for joining us here on our t.v. up next though we go behind the bars of one ton of. prisons live from moscow it's. illegal immigration is a hot topic and everyone always says that immigrants do the work that no one wants to do well let me explain why that is i would occur just on vacation got into a taxi driven by a former migrant worker who used to make a living in moscow he told me that he really worked hard driving unloading trucks after five years he came back home and bought
a house yes for the seller that russians can't even survive and he was able to buy a house employers and russian america say that locals don't want to work are demotivated well want to margaret worker on a salary that could build a bright future one compared to a local who can't even make ends meet while you could see why the market workers are a lot more motivated let me put it to you this way if you knew that you had to work five hard years of some awful labor under awful conditions somewhere far away like brazil or germany but would be able to pay off your house would you do it i think you would let's not buy into this myth that locals and country x. don't want to work they just don't want to work in complete futility for table scraps but the shust my opinion. if you blew through the un scope of the super cooled rule today that the prison is it going to move to legally challenge their detention in us schools. let me wind it is an immediate cessation of conditions that are cruel inhuman or degrading or that
constitute torture i'm going chain scale human rights law in full you know taking the among most ruling is now demanding the release of the names so that they can. the government is so far refused to release the names why do you know how many we have you sure you know. not today well it seems like a perfectly reasonable request to you why don't you just give us all the names it may not agree. that is what i asked. i never heard of her knew of her until guantanamo you have the power to extort are all i took part. in. that's what i had asked him.
was like a wake up call for me as i could i would have been submerged in the stonewalling efforts of my government of my colleagues there and get. them going along with that stonewalling and do placing these obstacles in the way. of these attorneys who are trying to get that information. nearing the end of my tour there. are sometimes going to be a done that's going to be done by me and doesn't have a short amount of time to do it. since he wants the next i know is where i get the next. inspect your bags they look at your things and you have something like that. they want to prosecute you and i knew i made a list of names they're not going to let me go in with that. figure out a way you know how my going to get off the island. and that's when i decide.
