taking the bread out of our mouths. somebody is to make an example out of him because he embarrassed hollywood. ambushed by success and online activists face is six years behind bars after a series of legal battles started by u.s. movie makers over they are declining profits. they were all either tortured killed or uses human shields r.t. hears from the syrian city of andro where rebel forces have reportedly carried out one of the most barbaric massacres is the beginning of the conflict. brains multi-billion dollar agreement with russia saves care from defaulting on its loans but fails to convert tester's in the capital with some opposition leaders branding the deal treason.
it said i am in moscow you watching our c.n.n. national when we were in a josh in hollywood and pirates don't always go together what started as a legal battle against copyright infringement for the co-founder of the file sharing service the pirate bay has snowballed into a tide of hacking accusations from around the world now god for it is far to him could end up in jail for six more years has peed all over now reports. banged up abroad since he was arrested in august twenty twelve pirate bay found a goth for its wattle embark seen the inside of jail cells in cambodia sweden and now solitary confinement in denmark it's just terrible as this man there to see that he is being treated like in this way like as if he were a terrorist hard criminal or violent criminal of some kind acquitted on computer
hacking charges by the appeals court in sweden he now has to wait and see what he'll be charged with in denmark due to the intricacies of danish law there's no way forgot for it to know how long he'll have to stay in solitary if it was you know a decision or warrant that was made by a judge i was i was able to tell him you know for two weeks and then we we can go and see the judge but now because it's a decision made by the prison service i'm not able to tell him if there is i can't give him any deadline whatever case is brought against got fred for now he spends twenty three hours a day locked in a cell by himself and the thing that upset him most didn't me as well worse at the worse until now to have his books in his cell even scandinavia is most notorious mass murderer anders breivik has access to reading material as he serves his sentence in norway for the slaying of seventy seven people support for godfrey it
is coming in from all across the world the likes of julian assange the activist collective anonymous of throwing their weight behind the campaign to get better treatment for a man they claim is being persecuted because of his online activism on twitter using the hash tag an account got for its online alias his supporters flooded the social media site some accusing the danish authorities not knowing what they're doing in the case just see if somebody does something online. online means bad they agree can't control it but they don't really seem to get what they are actually accusing him of for his family his mother is allowed an hour long visit once a week for which she has to make a thirteen hundred kilometer round trip it's immoral i would say and i don't think the danish people understand what's going on in that person's saw tom denies the
accusations of illegal online activity and the longer he waits for prosecutors to put together their case the more he becomes the face of online activism peter all of the r.t. germany us wish pirate party say swat on and is being set up as an example to scare others away we can observe that throughout this entire ordeal starting with a raid against the pirate bay on may thirty first twenty six a number of rights violations some more egregious than others have been committed and it's very hard to escape the feeling that governments are seeking to make an example out of god for it's far too rogue known as on a carter just to be scare others that might challenge the status quo and be frankly please the united states which kind of disgusts me to be honest so
julian assange. called him a political prisoner i would certainly agree that he is a victim but somebody is to make an example out of him because he embarrassed hollywood. now children and adults kidnapped tortured and we had it horrifying reports of atrocities carried out by islamist rebels keep coming towards you from the rebel occupied syrian town of entre at least eighty people were massacred there but as the army advances on the rebel held position the number of civilian casualties could rise the city remains cut off but our crew got to speak to a few survivors who managed to escape. terror still fills the hearts of those who witnessed the militants entering the town about drugs they saw panicked disoriented people running for their lives and they ran themselves they will never forget the despair in the eyes of those who were forced to stay behind we have no reliable way
to communicate with the people trapped inside address but officials are saying the atrocities against the civilian population are continuing our people are being butchered and even burned alive and every bit of news coming out of the town is doing a new blow to those whose families are still being held by the militants everyone working for the local authorities was to be killed regardless of their religion organon an asian they were all taken to be killed they took everyone even those who supported neither the government nor the rebels they were all either tortured killed or used as human shields the things being done in the drawer unthinkable they're slaughtering children and throwing them out of windows and no one's doing anything about it because the syrian authorities as well as human rights organizations say they have evidence confirming that massacres have taken place and address the dad led taqiyya and many other areas which remain under the control of the armed opposition that the situation in syria has now deteriorated to the point that international norms of combat are no longer being observed if. there is an
industrial town with a lot of these residents working both in the private sector and for government badge and sees horrifying crying as have been committed in this town houses who are set on fire with people trapped inside and. the syrian army which is a position just outside the town that continues to carry out surgical strikes as part of their effort to liberate address which is now the only hope of the families waiting for news of their loved ones inside the town. r.t. . as an only and were the bloodshed is growing thirteen people have been killed after the military launched an air strike on rebel held positions in aleppo it's the third day of an army assault on the opposition's northern stronghold according to local activists at least one hundred people have been killed including twenty children. now the u.s. has strongly condemn the bombing of aleppo at the same time trying to forge ties
with a newly formed radical islamic front rebel group western support for the rebels and whether the militant groups one democracy is up for debate and crossed off later on r.t. . so these people are fighting gates assad and they might be religious but they're fighting gates assad because they want freedom for their country and the and assad is a dictator so he does not a democratic country and he's a dictator let's not pretend that around that you know are they interested in democracy have mentioned this before here they're not interested in democracy at all so they're not he's very much you know everybody. keeps the country together that's that's that's what russia has been. the sovereign country they're killing christians they're killing druze they're killing alawite it's they're killing. you know disagreeable sunni's who who are they now are killing is the question so i think the idea that they would form a stable government let alone
a secular one is insane. you. ukraine's a newly struck deals with moscow may have given some respite to the countries trouble economy but they've also further fuel protests that's despite the fact that the contentious issue of ukraine joining a customs union with russia that the opposition feared could be agreed on was not even touched upon during the talks what's now a see what exactly the deals mean for ukraine first and foremost moscow agreed to buy fifteen billion dollars worth of ukrainian government bonds that would safety a from default and prevent a currency crisis for the more russia has agreed to slash the cost of gas supply to
ukraine by almost a third which also gives stansell relief to the country's economy jeffrey summers who's an associate professor of political economy at the university of wisconsin milwaukee thinks the deal is a magic not a political step on the part of a korean president. i think he's actually been trying to strike such a d. bill all along and indeed i think he's probably been going to all parties trying to see if he could indeed find the financing for ukraine's rather substantial external debt has probably been going to china. and of course russia seeing what he could find i think in terms of trying to get some debt relief and the best option of course was russia i don't think the european union was going to offer this much what they were offering was the prospect of a better future so they were offering a vision more than resources the vision is important but it must be backed by reality and my concern is that the european union represents a vision of its past rather than the direction that it's moving in the future so i
think the western ukrainian protesters in particular think that if they join the e.u. they're signing up floors that old social market model i think unfortunately what they would discover is that they're signing up for something very different which is this kind of neoliberal model which is delivering debt you know labor immigration and a whole host of other problems. as i imagine earlier ukraine's deals with iraq have failed to placate anti-government protesters and keep one of the most vocal critics of a lifeline moscow provided is a leader of the nationalist party who called the country's president a traitor for signing the agreement are just like your chest he takes a closer look at the rhetoric of one of the most controversial opposition leaders and ukraine. an offer of support for ukraine z u s gratian is was not enough to persuade one of the country's opposition leaders and yet to book drop shoulders with the german foreign minister during his surprise appearance at the protests in
kiev mr western valley is openly gay and the lifting of books parties for border has made its position on homosexuals quite clear attacking gay parades for the most part we want to build a country based on harmony and social justice we're being dragged into homosexual values by the western states and we will not allow that but homosexuals and people of different races are clearly not gently books biggest foes. any treaty with russia is not worth the paper it was signed oh. dear he looks forward to not make up the core of the protest movement but there are clearly it's loudest voices and it's actions as well as words and the salt of the city hall and scuffles around it ten days ago they told the lenin statue in key of an event described as the fall of the tyrant by the party and reckless vandalism by others this is a crack in the pavement where the toppled lenin monument literally lost its head and if you walk around the pedestal of what used to be the monument to the former
soviet leader we can see some graffiti over here first one here says yellow card which you're next and the one at the bottom says glory to the insurgent army of the 1940's in ukraine which some in this country believe to be freedom fighters who fought for independence while many others described as nazi collaborators on top of that and no militant field commander such called believe was spotted at my done a man who fought as a mercenary creation south of setia in all cases against the russians until the end of my days i will kill muscovites jews and communists. british reporter brian flynn had a first hand glance at the militarized right wing forces in ukraine and of the you were twenty twelve football championships he went undercover into their training camp these are people very serious about what they do they train physically to back it up with violence and i watched while they they followed live weapons and the presence of such people among the protesting crowd seems to cause no concern among
european officials walking on the same square. which is rather extraordinary isn't it to see somebody that the united states has banned from entering the country on the same platform as senator mccain to see somebody who is being brought in by the ice age franchise to mistake statements for denying the holocaust who supporters actually in the streets of kiev still do make anti-semitic as well as anti russian . gestures and slogans it does signify that the west and politicians are quite happy to use nationalist forces when it suits them that lack of reaction is particularly bewildering given many european statements about ukraine's right wing factions in the past and the burning over ukrainian football ground for not slogans in this stance so if you create does make it into the view someday it will be interesting to see how people with such different values sit at the same negotiating table. let's see reporting from key of ukraine.
you're watching ours here in ash no one coming out later this hour a hijack hypocrisy bosses of the world's biggest companies ban together against the n.s.a. spain spying but man i just don't believe they are called as janet plus. victims of an invisible enemy u.k. nuclear veterans claim compensation for their service that was recognized in many countries except their own. largest consumer of the season i see it with me in the country is the federal government to simply say it's property of the united states government. is the united states but it was probably going to realize you can't just buy. your own just throw it away there's a problem for instance belongs to the united states environmental protection agency
i found this on a dump site here here and not wait. for news of these and that's what i think should be able to collect these i believe that this should be responsible for the products from cradle to grave. fatal from mexico. into mental health property will sell to murder and copper but also belongs to the washington metro area transit authority to the properties of a dentist aids patient and trademarks. welcome back you're watching r t international the military mission of ghana stan is
accomplished at least that's what the u.k. prime minister told soldiers they are in a pretty christmas visit his cheering the words come as drug trafficking in the country reaches record levels and the alga national army surrenders key checkpoints in southern afghanistan to taliban in return for an anti-tax we spoke to in iraq a war veteran who believes that cameron is trying to put a brave face on a story business. mission accomplished was used by cameron because you know politicians don't really say hey you know that wildly unpopular war that we send you and your children to die and it's like for over a decade well we messed up and it was all of which they're not going to say mission accomplished by cameron means that we died for years in a colonial exercise that was a total blood soaked disaster due to the arrogance of rich politician who thought they could dominate the land and resources of poor people in afghanistan using the
blood of working class people from the united states and from the u.k. and it's almost you know for cameron to assert that there has been so called progress against the insurgency there is an absolute fantasy and the resistance in afghanistan has forced this more dire year withdrawal of u.s. and nato forces so this withdrawal that we're hearing of this is a retreat but a retreat in slow motion because the forces in afghanistan who are fighting the occupation i have been successful marriage militarily. and here's just in a nato base in eastern afghanistan has been attacked by taliban gunmen and suicide bombers three insurgents have reportedly been killed in the firefight is the second such attack on the base that is a vital checkpoint on the border between afghanistan and pakistan well of course here on r.t. will be keeping you updated as the situation develops there. and also on our web site r.t. dot com for you right now putting pressure on israel scholars and researchers in
the u.s. call for a decade down a good card of israeli call it college is pushing them to rethink their middle east politics warning that online. also mind control we tell you about soviet and u.s. work to develop superpowers for human beings that border on troops science fiction . right see. first trip. and i think that you're. on our reporters would. be in the. tech giants have pay a visit to the white house urging barack obama to overhaul the national security agency surveillance program bosses of the world's biggest i.t.
companies including google yahoo an apple press their case right after a federal judge ruled out the spine may be unconstitutional for a cia officer ray mcgovern things the move is simply a p.r. stunt. i think the internet executives are crying crocodile tears they've made a lot of money out of it in cipher in their their establishment and then a permitting the united states government to get trapdoors behind it they're losing business that's the name of the game for them and so yes they'd like to have a sensible rules that make it easier for them to do business particularly overseas but it's long since time for them to speak out about violations of the fourth amendment. and a week before a meeting obama tech company sent an open letter to the president and congress saying that n.s.a. spying in our minds freedom and here's what abby martin has to say about it. after
publicly opposing government surveillance last week internet search giant google has enjoyed a wave of good press but before we all decide to instill our full faith and trust the benevolent and almighty google we might just want to use their search bar to google boston dynamics he said yesterday sergey brin the little company purchased boston dynamics an engineering firm with strong ties the military's defense advanced research projects agency or darpa so what is boston dynamics all about terrifying and jaw dropping robots such as big dog four legged robot that can climb hills or cheetah a robot that can run at twenty nine miles an hour and most lifelike pet man humanoid robot that can move around like a human and detect chemical leaks so what the hell is one of the biggest internet companies in the world doing purchasing these spooky cyborgs yeah i don't know if i'm ready for google to have a private army of iron man. now
a brief look at some other stories from around the world the united nations estimates the number of dead from two days of fighting in the capital of south sudan has now reached five hundred around eight. people have also been reported injured with thousand seeking shelter in u.n. compounds violence erupted on monday after a failed coup led by the former deputy prime minister the country is now facing the largest crisis since its independence from sudan in twenty eleven. demonstration an african migrants in jerusalem has and in scuffles with police and they were rallying against a new law allowing us the words to keep them in detention centers indefinitely around one hundred fifty african migrants abandoned once or center and walked to jerusalem where they were joined by rights groups police and protesters back to custody after dispersing the rally. to the u.s.
state of nevada now were gunmen opened fire in the neurology department of a local medical center the attacker killed one person injured two more and then turned the gun on himself no details have been released on the identity of the assailant and possible motive of the attack the incident comes just days after a colorado teenager of one did a classmate in denver high school before taking his own life. here in. an invisible terror that's taking its toll years later british veterans of nuclear bomb tests and the nine hundred fifty s. attribute most of their current illnesses to the radiation they were exposed to and are asking the government for compensation u.k. authorities however have rejected their claim despite other countries recognizing their service men are he says are cilia has more. jeff lydiard was seventeen when he joined the royal air force and was eventually posted to mari linger in south australia nuclear tests were carried out there in the fifty's with some publicity but minor trials reportedly continued in secrecy until the my nine hundred sixty s.
run. being. we knew every or for every four aircraft flew in with a nuclear flask. which we unloaded onto a lorry and it was taken away by the scientists who did what they were doing with what he termed fifty illnesses he believes were caused by his exposure to radiation that barreling started manifesting i started off with i had tb i then started having degeneration of my spine my daughter has got a prank reaction a condition which can only be of traced back to genetic source so i have the question in my mind. was it many was it because i was there and many others are asking the same questions even before world war two radiation was
a hazard. measuring it in a meaningful way very very difficult indeed and nevertheless there is undoubtedly i think contrition among the british authorities not to own up to any responsibility these people were experimented on quite honestly it was disgraceful how those soldiers were created and they've long been asking the government for recognition and compensation their service is part of history and more lies so future generations will not forget but for those who would actually serve the forgetting is not an option especially for those who feel that of the system they've made decades ago may have cast a shadow on their lives and those of their loved ones if you look out of the country's nuclear countries a treaty that veterans and compensate them and recognize them and we stand right at the bottom of the table that is wrong france the united states and even the tiny aisle of men have already done so but the ministry of defense maintains that while
there is a quote huge debt of gratitude owed to the veterans the government rejects any link between veterans' health problems and their military service citing a two thousand and ten health needs audit. overall the rage and severity of problems reported was typical of older people in the u.k. in general and a veteran who believes they have suffered ill health due to service has the right to apply for a no fault compensation jeff knows the clock is ticking and while he's hopeful he has no illusions about how difficult the fight will be at the very least what he wants is this insight from cuban we need cost money money to say thank you we're like goes. we don't exist does or sylvia r.t. london and i have a look at the achievements of god as economy and whether it's really broad change to the people there.
