prizes granted to lose how about i don't want to pass any judgment on you stop but in effect what is implied is really the targeting of china on the group an equal chance for good it has nothing to do with what your child was actually done and you come to the conclusion that cries based on political considerations rather than on anything tangible well i saw the statement by the russian media regarding assad and i think that what you see with regard to the silence is double standards going to scientists now being threatened he's being targeted for releasing information to the global beat up so they can see the novel standards of the so-called international community where a son is targeted for doing what's what he should be doing which is releasing factual information which should be known to the public and then you have a case where the same people will be pushing for a candidate which is

arrogant. message from from the west if for instance this year's prize will worsen the situation in china rather than making it better and if obama doesn't live up to the big ideals that they have laid on his shoulders then they're going to have a problem. well supporting wiki leaks who staged a cyber war on companies which are obstructing its work including pay pal visa or master card these firms for their part so they don't allow their clients to promote illegal activities but as art is going to encounter reports next this doesn't seem to stop them from continuing to serve some outspoken hate groups. the u.s. government has presented no charges against juliana saw much but the absence of solid accusations did not stop american government officials from reportedly putting pressure at the highest level to cut off weiqi leaks money supply the

senior executive of america's money transfer giant pay pal said the state department had written to the company claiming the online whistleblower was involved in illegal activities so pay pal along with master card and the sat no longer accept cash donations for the controversial website it's the threat of this impact on national security and we say that in the united states everybody. you know what's their parents and they do what they're told. and so i think that it's a misconception in some cases that people think that the u.s. is purely a money driven society it's not the government has certain parag it is particularly over national security no court ruling no legal procedures were needed to crackdown on the media organization i think it's outrageous wiki leaks has not been charged

with a single u.s. crime and i'm saying even charged with a crime and here the nation or the country's financial institutions are taking action on behalf of our state department to extinguish this whistleblower web site leader pay-pal backtracked on acting upon the u.s. government's repressed master card and the so where most of ace of on the issue but the general explanation they give for not accepting donation payments will weaken leaks is that the site quote encourages promotes facilitates or instructs others to engage in illegal activity but on the other hand nine their master card. any problems processing donations for say no kuku. klan. movement and his demand a history of extreme violence with the goals of racial segregation and white supremacy and yet it takes seconds to make
4:07 pm
a donation to the klan using one of one of those is a visa and master card must be saying it's all about business right but they're not saying that when it comes to we can leaks and number of senators including the chairman of the homeland security committee joe lieberman were quick to pat those companies on the back for crying cash to leaky leaks. can't help asking if u.s. officials are so down and weak you leaks why aren't they after the week you leaks partner papers one other incredible thing about the prosecution is that so many people are falsely reporting that we can leaks has dumped two hundred fifty thousand documents that's not true at all they only were putting stuff on their web page when you go to the new york times or der spiegel or the guardian or putting up or very useful to the united states government in some ways there is a severe slanting in the output that is the new york times got to go through as
4:08 pm
many document as it possibly could in the several weeks or several months given to it by week you leaks to go through these documents and pick and choose those documents that are most conducive towards the new york times there's a lot of mystery surrounding wiki leaks but what's on the surface now are examples of double standards everyone is after a week in leaks but not for example the new york times question is why going to shutdown our teeth washington d.c. . a little later some pretty poorly in there a dying without even knowing the cause find out why malaria deaths are recorded and why the country statistics don't tally with those the world health organization. next month is clearing up after the worst day of. student protests in the u.k. for over a decade the unrest came after m.p.'s voted in favor of increasing university tuition fees in england violence flared across the british capital with government property vandalized and even prince charles as car attacked by demonstrators at his

4:10 pm
that car there's an investigation into how that could have been allowed to happen but the world cup will is on the home and protesters are setting ball odds on why they smashed windows at the treasury and the supremum cool and interesting really to distinguish it from previous processed it was increasingly difficult yesterday to find students who condemn the violence more and more they're seeing it more as a means to an end rather than something to be condemned and something that's hard jacking that message is important to note this rise that has been agreed will treble. that it cost students to go to university or some students attend the way it's going to go up from just under five thousand dollars to around fourteen thousand dollars but that won't take effect until the next generation of students goes to university service this is something that will really come into force in around two thousand and twelve we spoke to chris knight's yesterday who's a professor of anthropology and also a seasoned demonstrator hardly
