this starting coming to life in moscow with me marina joshing ukraine has seen another day of mass protests against rejection of an e.u. trade deal and association agreement thousands of demonstrators defied authorities in the capital where riot police have been deployed to ensure security are just like here chefs he is following the situation for us in kiev more than fifteen thousand and now he gives famous independence square all three protest sites in the city have merged into one this is this center stage of the whole protest of the morning there was a slight tension at the government building when they the opposition held a rally there and i saw literally hundreds of riot police over there securing the building it was quite tense because there was information put into the authorities that some groups may be trying to assault the government buildings eventually it was. that peacefully obviously these people will not go anywhere until the end of
friday until the summit in vilnius that's where ukraine still has a chance of signing the euro zone station agreement something these people are strongly desiring when asked the authorities whether this was the right move to council deciding they say yes because talent was the right decision was prophetic it was done in the best interest of the country's economy to save it from collapse meanwhile some european politicians have travelled to kiev to lend their support to the crowds as the speaker of the lithuanian parliament i congratulate the people of ukraine as you have gathered here to stand for the european future of your country i'm proud to be this you any a has already tried its path to becoming a member of the european union and we are ready to be ukraine's guide if you any and trust that the ukrainian people will make the right choice. that's speech by the speaker of parliament sparked a diplomatic scandal i a ranking diplomat from lithuania as embassy to ukraine was summoned to give an
explanation of this comes as the e.u.'s eastern partnership summit is set to start in on the twenty in capital vilnius where ukraine's president promised to explain to the block's leaders why they rejected the pak paula tell from the u.k. independence party believes there is why disregard for the risks of ukraine's integration into the union. they told know enough about the problems that your house will do if they move in once crate ukraine to eventually join and they will albanians to join they won't say happy it's to join me they don't want to take you to join you know ninety five percent of say he isn't even in your i mean this is an expansion of stalking as asian reem britain certainly don't want ukraine to join the european union because if they join that means our borders will be opened up to forty six million ukrainians and in ukraine the average wage is around three hundred euro and we know that if they do join a lot of them will cold western at the moment we have twenty two percent youth
unemployment rate in britain we concentrate. any further with any more people. more was behind you greens you turn down the backlash it's barkhad to our website r.t. dot com. it's all a senate has stripped former prime minister silvio berlusconi of his parliamentary seat after his conviction for tax fraud the seventy seven year old politician has dominated the italian political scene for two decades despite facing serious criminal charges and being deprived of political immunity he remains defiant as are going off reports from rome. it was quite an emotional vote at the senate and the comments that we've been getting from mr berlusconi and his supporters are frankly just as emotional they've deemed his political rivals as the firing squad they've been saying that this is a day of mourning for italian democracy and that this was
a political assassination clearly looking at having to deal with several convictions including abuse of power and having sex with an underage prostitute themselves saying that he's not planning to back down he's not planning to go underground and wants to stay with his supporters you know his rivals on the other hand are celebrating comparing the former prime minister with al capone to the. the chicago gangster who for years managed to avoid prosecution but then was finally jailed for tax evasion now all of this is happening amid some serious problems with the cannot the italian economy the current government hasn't really been very successful in dealing with them they've barely managed to push through the two thousand and fourteen budget which is in the focus of a loss of criticism the economy is going through the worst recession since the second world war youth unemployment is very high right now. but what do analysts powerful and i believe the time government is using the scandal surrounding
berlusconi to distract public attention away from the country's problems. the dramatic economic situation which to be ease not only because of the few cuties of the current governments but also because of the european. extremely illogical and street measures unemployment so the crucial for patients to fit the needs of the starting sending parts of its assets i mean this is something that makes people very nervous and worried for the future certainly the events concerning school me have been galvanizing the italian media and the onion people's attention and so reduce crime issues being used also to cover up these kinds of problems which are. still going on in the program there is no such thing as an israeli well on paper at least just to have a look at how
a group of campaigners are calling for the recognition of national identity. experts now say that anyone who has a couple of thousand dollars for a three d. printer and an internet connection can make a three d. gun which will be invisible to x. ray machines and metal detectors in the us critics of the technology are warning it has reached a dangerous point with federal law banning undetectable firearms set to expire in less than two weeks i didn't read a board not found out what it takes to print a gun. rhett's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference is that these men are firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand
a bunch of heat tolerance and accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody knows which is a par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts company specializing in three d. printing here in prince arena r.t. was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this bar after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal laser simpering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol fix about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printed metal gun has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid
concepts has manufactured its second nineteen eleven firearm we plan on making a few more prototypes for additional testing. and we don't we don't plan on going into full production on these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's stuff only an industrial commercial type process and it will be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has
already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering patterns set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years and how small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts at home workshops and and you know having one on your desktop at home so that we are going there that it took knowledge exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all love to the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. . the astonishing capability of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become a part of our household tap alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. . what people choose to physically create in the privacy of their home. will be
beyond the control of the u.s. government bring up or naya r.t. texas well here's what the first three d. firearm looked like it was created in may this here and the technology has come a long way in just a few months and it's now possible to make something that looks and works like a real weapon but the biggest threat here is according to engineering expert hod lipson is that firearms can now be disguised. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in los a different way some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like a flower vase or something else and so there is this ability to make things in any shape and form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's
a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things. coming out sports without barriers. look i mean listen you're constantly flying around sweet collisions and everything for crazy. with less than one hundred days to go before the paralympians takeover at the sochi winter games are a man who has a lot of sports to turn his life around. muppet. look look look. look. plenty it was a problem very hard to take
a look at a little longer here there's a lot that has sex with their lives let's play a. little look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look. look look look. look look look the a bubble. welcome back this is our team british people are on one of the top consumers of
antidepressants in europe a recent study has revealed and while it's largely being blamed on doctors overprescribing some experts say it's also financial woes and soaring unemployment that's taking their toll on the health of people in the u.k. our news laura smith reports from london. feeling a bit under the weather the solution in britain go to the pharmacy here there are pills for everything. pills for indeed jest pills for a headache pills for colds and if you've got a prescription from your doctor you can get you'll have people's hair too and it's increasingly likely you will have the organization of the european cooperation and development says the number of doses of antidepressants being prescribed in the u.k. has doubled in the last ten years britain now has the seventh highest prescribing rate in the western world for drugs like prozac higher than france germany and much
of mainland europe some health experts put that down to overworked still prescribing drugs when therapy would be more effective some say we feel we don't have time to be depressed so we take drugs looking for a quick fix but the depression alliance reckons it's at least in part due to the effects of the economic downturn i think there are people that have come forward whose lives have been hit very badly and by and by losing jobs and not been able to get into jobs young people trying to get started and then finding that the financial pressures that they're under has meant that they just are not getting off the starting blocks so many then the economic recovery will mean a return to mental health too and until then the u.k. will keep on taking the pills. and not everyone in britain is depressed by money troubles the former prime minister tony blair has been treated to a dinner at buckingham palace hired out by the us bank j.p. morgan makes keyser takes a ruthless view on that and here's
a quick taster from the show that's coming up later jamie diamond rented out watching him palace in order to entertain his close friend tony blair the dinner took place only days before jamie diamond had agreed to give the us department of justice a very small cut mortgage fraud games and oh how the penniless peasants outside buckingham palace gates rejoiced at the impossibly large number of thirteen billion dollars jamie in. a state without nationality that may sound strange but for some it's a reality people in israel cannot be documented as being israeli and there she is posing your discovers a united national identity could be an important step towards ending discrimination in the country the u.s. has uncle sam russia has the bear france has more yawn and israel has a question mark if nothing else it's weird in france you're french in the united
states you're american in south africa you're south african but here in israel you cannot be very interested as israeli i'm the only low you can come from moscow. and demand to be there just a nationality. but you can not their money. it's a totally absurd situation in israel's population which is st there are one hundred thirty five recognized nations people are listed as jew arab druze and more but never as israeli and the most seem ok with that it's the mountain the meaning is the same the nation is the jewish nation and it has the jewish nation state both in the proclamation of independence and the un resolution of november the twenty ninth one nine hundred forty seven which says that a jewish state would be formed not an israeli one if
a person was to be identified as israeli in the national registry it would challenge the claim that israel is a jewish country something the supreme court is aware of as it is we have mary and a group of israelis petitioning for change i don't argue that laws draw. different but out form an arab set of them is something to accept it's not democratic we want despicably long. all of that. but for now the supreme court has dismissed the case leaving the debate on what is an israeli open for years it was truly created by one of the country's greatest caricaturists camile goddaughter better known as dorsch but slick is clearly jewish as a question of additional yet ok came up with a young man because israel was still young state and slowly he created the new israeli national guard more with the issue what happened with their neighbors palestinians included but they weren't part of the character. like the registry
cyrillic lives in a world where culture faith and history are more defining then once present and by all accounts it's likely to remain that way at least for the nearest future and israel without israelis. r t hold on. our web team has lined up plenty of stories for you on our website including the digital currency that sweeping to see. the price of the big coin has reached a record high of one thousand dollars having doubled its value in the last week to find out how it works and why it's causing so much concern to the what he's had to argy dot com for all the details and analysis. was astronomers across the globe prepare to be mesmerized by the side of the comet of the century passing close to the sun all our stories are just a click away remember that on our website artie dot com. right see the. first tree. and i think the tree.
on our reporters with their. instagram. some other news now making headlines around the world starting with egypt the group of female orders of ousted president mohamed morsi have received prison sentences for protests in alexandria twenty one women including juveniles will have to spend eleven years behind bars for their demonstration in support of the muslim brotherhood earlier this month this comes after police broke up several protests in cairo under a new law that bans the protests of more than ten people without permission. in brazil at least two people have been killed when a crane collapsed on one of the twenty fourth the football world cup and it
happened at a stadium in some power which is due to host the opening match of the competition is the third fatal accident to happen since construction work began for the event brazil has been in a race against time to complete their weakness before next month's deadline set by football's governing body. demonstrators in tunisia have staged an assault on the half waters of the ruling party in the town of protesters carried office furniture out of the building before burning it in a nearby street public discontent with the government is soaring in the country which was the cradle of the arab spring revolutions. in thailand anti-government protesters have gathered at the parliament building in bangkok the thai prime minister in a wad has just survived a no confidence vote and that's adding further attention to the street protests at a stranger's earlier paralyze several government ministries in the capital accusing shinawatra acting as a stooge her brother the former prime minister in the biggest unrest to hit
thailand since two thousand and ten. while the olympic torch continues its record breaking trip to sortie disabled athletes are getting psyched up for their moments to shine the winter paralympics is now less than just one hundred days away. met with some of russia's hopeful medalists. i copied as it should be intense fierce determined and i like you. just with two sticks one in each hand with extra risks. for you miss you're constantly flying around a high speed collisions and everything for me crazy. tireless commitment to work or just. training all the time morning to every day of these seventeen paralympic athletes in a twenty fourteen russia sledge hockey team and thirty six year old by doing so you can is their captain he was injured in two thousand and two while serving in the
russian military in chechnya. before the age of twenty five i used to have a completely different life were also for both of them but after the injury i turned to sports to realise my potential. he went from swimming to taking up a chance to join russia's brand new sledge hockey squad. no one is going to bring you things on a silver platter you but here we had an opportunity to work for free since two thousand and nine when we were told we were going to participate in the second paralympics it's been a driving force in a country that struggled to accommodate people's disabilities russia's paralympic coach says the team is helping to change perceptions in the demo. but a few minutes ago in eugene was more these guys managed to prove to themselves their relatives and the entire society that they are not people with disabilities but people with limited abilities. he has been a part of the paralympics since one thousand nine hundred four but this is the
first year that russia will compete this board only came here four years ago as vadim remembers what we were just staring at one another not really knowing what to do first. let me show you. here is the sledge what it is this is the blade and this small area is the seat. which means it's terribly unsteady so just imagine you have to keep your balance and simultaneously carry the puck you keep falling down and it takes a lot of time to get back up but now we're skilled at it. but these sledge hockey players they're really just so she doesn't believe it's taken an immense amount of hard work personal sacrifice and dedication but the payoff is that it's just on the ice. to this experience i believe that people who have survived a car crash or a plane crash will look at us and realize that even with an injury like that you
can live on you can set your own goals and achieve the. captain of our team to the region of russia. and the next year in our d.n.a. martin looks out of failures of the u.s. criminal justice system bringing. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract at the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and it's quite the olympics having the
majority of the countries on earth participating there are now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by think this is a big misconception let's look back to two thousand a lympics in beijing yet china is really develop in the last twenty years but the deliberate truly teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their. ancient culture or the way they think of the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it by think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries of generic stadiums but that's just my opinion.
i think. they would like to know that you know the price is the only industry specifically mention in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy albus. role. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our press civic we've been hijacked why handful of transnational corporations they will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once built that's my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem to try rational debate in a real discussion critical issues facing up to find a job ready to join the movement then welcome the big picture. the the.
happy almost thanksgivukkah folks i'm having martin this is breaking the sets well thanksgiving isn't just a time for mass consumption it's also the time for the annual presidential turkey pardon that's right thanks to the generosity of obama to lucky birds were spared from the deep fryer today in fact of the course of his presidency obama's had the great privilege of saving the lives of ten of these adorable gobblers if you only cared this much about humans rotting away in cages across the nation so right now there are over three hundred thousand people in prison for drugs and guess how many nonviolent drug users obama had the pleasure of pardoning a whopping eleven people has obama has almost pardon as many turkeys as he has the drug offenders well if you count the massive hormones injected into these little birds i guess the numb. stands at twenty one pardon living things which is
a shame considering how bomb as a former user of marijuana and cocaine so how many people who has obama pardoned in total while the number stands at forty just for comparison at the same point ronald reagan's presidency he had already pardoned three hundred thirteen people and reagan was a horrible president so go with the program obama last time pardoning but paltry and more time pardoning persecuted prisoners. it's a. very hard to take. that fact that there.
