6:03 am
this there would definitely be there would definitely be differences among the different parties involved but really it had taken quite a different turn from what was expected when we were hearing statements coming from foreign ministers of the u.k. you know william hague. seize the moment and dick. trying to come up with a very elusive deal but in the year indeed there is no deal that has been reached but again talks will be rescheduled november the twentieth. and some of the main sticking points on the table were a reactor that iran could potentially use to produce weapons grade nuclear fuel and how sanctions relief who would proceed there let's not take a closer look at what negotiators were trying to achieve there and france according to some sources that six world powers want 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 its facilities in return while power would

6:05 am
western countries are playing the good cop and. here it is the france is playing the role of bad cop in dealing with iran. meanwhile iran's moderate needs or has any has reiterated that it won why don't bow down to international pressure and be forced to give up bryanston richmond even before the tour was began and stay thousands were rallying in tehran chanting anti-american slogans and burning israeli flags and she's postcard has been finding out what called them so riled up . let's argue republic of iran is ready to engage immediately in time bound intake to talks to build mutual confidence and the removal of mutual uncertainties hassen rouhani his recent speech at the un general assembly was said by many to represent a thorn in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is king to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is king for this to happen. hard line conservative
6:06 am
protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran a malveaux was 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 and to 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 renew 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
6:07 am
washington those critics now favor holly's 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 of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these 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 very file ball 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 anti american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani
6:08 am
demanding many be taken down. r.t. . and on the way here when else where were q. peroration and indefinite detention. 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 and sunshine steal the show had gone time of day with no end in sight for the u.s. military base where hunger striking detainees are being force fed behind bars. now another diplomatic scandal blew up in the face of european officials this week after a british newspaper reporters the u.k. is operating a secret listening station in berlin to spy on their german allies the equipment housed on the u.k. embassy roofie is believed to be able to intercept communications in berlin german officials on investigating the claims that's while their hands are already full with reports the german chancellor is mobile phone has been topped by american
6:09 am
intelligence european parliament member paul murphy admits there will be a diplomatic fallout that says political interests will wait any public criticism in 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 but at the same time i think this is going to have consequences it will deepen the divides between the. british and the you know what is represented by the government within germany. there is kind of star of difference there with britain more representing an atlanticist view of the european union obviously being part of the so-called five i guess together with the u.s. you know u.s. led was founded a stranger 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
6:10 am
an attempt to be an attempt by the governments to saudi express and give voice to be under felt by people but then to try and put a lid on it because if you look at what's happening between the the you 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 on both sides and in a world where everyone spying on everyone else all sees more and of course now i spoke to one individual who's created a salute free online say hi. 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 actually 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.
6:11 am
backdoor access to its networks since nine hundred ninety eight its mission has rejected a judge in the u.s. government for some 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 you're going 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
6:12 am
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 will promise to do the same marina porter archie. began to say scandal was one of the major reasons the girl crowns to ride wild wives this week. anonymous group called a million last not true hundreds of sitters protesting against online privacy infringement corruption nor were reporting that later this hour.

sharing the olympic spirit with outer space the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games has been taken on its first ever space walk all these lives in france was of the mission control center to witness the unique moment. 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 the cosmonauts through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand so it's again. it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one thousand nine hundred 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 this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to
6:14 am
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 my 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. . and more international news stories coming your way a very short break. the deepest lake in the world. usually then no more than fifteen thousand years old this one dates back twenty five.
6:15 am
spirits and buddhist dogs live in. the pure clear water in the lake is helping scientists unravel the mysteries of the universe. i try to see by cal in its entirety. it's not that i have discovered something new here rather that i absorb everything that this place offers. a spiritual bike. when western politicians and media invoke the phrase international community it almost always reflects the thinking and agenda of washington and its closest allies around the world used in this matter the international community is in fact a very small minority. welcome
6:16 am
back and before we continue with the week's events a quick update now on today's developing story on the death toll from the devastating typhoon haiyan that swept across the philippines would exceed ten thousand that's the fear of local officials although the government has yet to confirm the latest estimates among there was tape the hour is the safety of taco bon from west survivors a say the scenes horrific also hundreds of thousands have been reported displays by the natural disaster the red cross confirms twelve hundred people have been killed by this. clone which is the strongest in history to hit the region the typhoon is now moving towards vietnam where thousands have been evacuated from coastal areas. and we're also following typhoon haiyan on aussie dot com where you can get the latest reports on the devastation caused by the storm.
6:17 am
more than a dozen detainees continue a grueling hunger strike a gun tunnel a day with no deadline for their release or the closure of the notorious u.s. military prison offseasons to see a trick and i went behind the barbed wire to find out how deeply entrenched the multi-billion 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 a 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 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 us government has been leasing this territory since one
6:18 am
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 server and territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from a whole life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to there's the downtown and open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and it ticky 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 decent man and we go to be an end of year as are actively things for people to do m.w. our stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get 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 and all you can eat lunch cost just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price a downside though information or lack thereof or if you do a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the base 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.
6:20 am
even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a 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 when i wanted to call so for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulder shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time who's 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

egypt's first democratically elected president. was the. grammy a star is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi romney has little hope for egypt's future as morsi goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters are going for the revolutionaries are now in the worst scenario we have 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 and remnants of the former regime tahrir square 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
6:23 am
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 mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown that gets a brotherhood. 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 that the security apparatus continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched in its own influence in its own interest again and again the problem number two we need to sit down and agree on a specific transitional justice either we're trying everyone on meaningful we're taking the route to the south africa bureau and many many of them that is totally
6:24 am
evil speech or that seems far away as proof morsy protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is morsi is 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 big global protest movement anonymous held a million mosque munchen hundreds of cities across the world it brought together those concerned with online privacy corporate greed freeze and other causes my colleague andrew follows spoke with american activist greg who believes what's right isn't always worth seeing. 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 or 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
6:25 am
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 fail 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 well actually it's 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 . the glitz and glam a. whole new level as any six of the walls top be it is compared to the title of miss universe. was that far . they seated us twenty third seat has been won by miss venice god is on the twenty five goal was to take the right road she was proud it's not the

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 drawn 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 from 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 work or 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 migrant 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 what would be able to pay off a house would you do it i think you would let's not buy into this myth that locals in country x. don't want to work they just don't want to work and complete futility for table scraps but that's just my opinion. lake baikal is in east siberia people are drawn to it by its beauty its energy and its benevolent spirits. an old old shaman chickie said there is a place where you should sprinkle water and pray to the spirits. and they will guard. really give the impression that something supernatural is happening. because.
