international music comment live from our studios here in central moscow this is r.t. three months on japan is struggling to recover from its toughest crisis since the second world war when a huge earthquake caused a merciless tsunami which left thousands dead and missing a natural disaster triggered a major radiation leak at the fukushima nuclear facility and it's still on the verge of a full scale nuclear catastrophe correspondent sean thomas is in tokyo where anger over the situation is spilling onto the streets. there is a three months after they got a standing quake and tsunami which rocked japan and devastated the fukushima region of course creating the nuclear disaster at the tepco daiichi power plant where we now know that three reactors have melted down and possibly melted throughout today is a very interesting day at the tepco headquarters in central tokyo thousands of people
3:02 pm
have gathered so much in support of your queer power believe it or not and thousands more who are walking the streets in organized protests carrying signs and banners and shouting out slogans through loudspeakers against nuclear power saying that there needs to be alternative sources of energy of all this of course and for the tepco headquarters the company responsible for the guy power plant and one of the reasons why this is important is that within the past week new information has come out saying that tepco at the initial phases of the disaster lied about the amount of radiation those coming in and tried to downplay the situation saying that the radiation levels were not as bad that there could possibly be a meltdown then of course this past week it was revealed the. couple's numbers are in a half in fact. the government is not providing proper information and people young and old want to know the truth of the sun on the situation with the radioactive emissions has not changed in the last three months nothing has changed since the
3:03 pm
very beginning the community is devastated the people have no homes there is no place to walk everything is destroyed school also coming to life is the nuclear fuel not only melted down but possibly melted groovey in a containment vessel into the outer sinister linings which is a much much more serious problem one thing that people are worried about is the amount of radioactive water that is in the area this is the beginning of a rainy season and people are worried that with more rain that radioactive water will then spill out and flooding the area causing walking terminations also people are very angry about the children there are schools which are contaminated as. well right now kids are exposed to higher levels of radiation that there have been in the past and they have to stay inside in sealed buildings the ability to play outside it's also very hot and possible i. just wonder at your doctor sometimes one person from the prime minister sharon has actually said he was a direct result trails of s.c.h. it is a kind of culture say with the recession with the entrepreneur to judge themselves
3:04 pm
to be higher levels of radiation of course our dollars in archie crews to go into the fukushima zone and we're going to go in with some cleanup crews in see how that process is going right now but from tokyo john thomas artsy. sean bernie an independent nuclear energy consultant based in the u.k. tells me that recovery from the current nuclear disaster at the fukushima plant is going to be long and painful. the explosions that took place and the first day they released a large amount to redirect evictee perhaps ninety percent of it and didn't look entered in the pacific because the prevailing winds ten percent landed or more landed on the mainland of japan which is why you've got contamination tens and tens of kilometers away from the site the problem is that as a result of these explosions and as a result of the core melt in these reactors contaminated water the water that was
3:05 pm
cooled by used by to put a cool the reactors has now built up on site we know that would be five to ten thousand tons has been released into the pacific but there is an additional one hundred thousand tons of highly contaminated water sitting inside the reactor buildings inside the turbine holes radiation depending on the type radiation can be seen in a relatively short period of time to could retire early cancers in children but more long term critters soldiers is over several decades. or coming up for you this hour on r.t. online talk show host a resident goes fishing for opinion on the recent hacking attacks on giant companies like sony rustica. it was thinking they are heroes because they can solve . everything they are they are the front cover of all of the security systems. this summer that's positive takes on the hackers and their motives in a few minutes but also still to come this hour. there are
3:06 pm
a lot of different bludgeons and mess around this area in the past locals try to avoid going to the city of dallas they say anyone who dares to get in will never get out alive. find out how russia close out team deiced were there to bring in this report from the mystical heart of the country's deep south. a number of u.s. congressmen have received a letter apparently written by colonel gadhafi saying he is ready to negotiate a cease fire and asking for humanitarian aid with intensity of the letter has not been confirmed but it has continued to step up its airstrikes on the capital tripoli that's despite a fresh and also colored efforts daughter against the french president she is suing nicolas sarkozy and nato for killing four members of her family during an airstrike in april meanwhile the turkish prime minister has offered kind of gadhafi exit guarantees to wherever he chooses or to get more analysis on the situation there
3:07 pm
libya and. libya itself let's now cross over to radio host and author stephen lemon he's joining us there live in chicago good to see you again steven on our team what's your view over this letter a lot of questioning over the authenticity of this communication from get out if you think it really was sent by. paul i believe it so. since many. on the program and syrah t. . want to. hear it he responded to it when washington and new york all we need for a long war actually didn't look very good and evil was a call for the from what you. believe again it could be the risk of course he wants it is if you want a cease fire he doesn't want any of this civil war in the west is the legal.
3:08 pm
mess of chile using the usual rebel insurgents bill so this is a meeting here so you know. the thing is if he wants a cease fire he sent that letter and within just a couple of days of sending that letter we're now going to reports that his forces are renewing their attack on misrata. well you know men are really were a new way to be responding again you get a rebel insurgency go in her and you go to war friends and dizziness were related to your use of the country of course it is attacking here this is an insurgency it's attacking him because killing libyan people as a leader of a country if i would leave the leader of libya i would do what he's doing not got hits i believe in peace not war but i believe in the right people i would do
3:09 pm
exactly what he's doing like what. sort of theory of the load time but you are convinced that that has been sent by could happen but isn't it interesting that the media outlets and indeed that's many others are speculating the source of this letter why should you think there'd be any questioning over the source of this letter whether it is genuine or not and if it is sent from god that it should be fairly obvious shouldn't say that but why is it that question hanging over it well here in the bennett observers on the ground including former u.s. congresswoman green party presidential candidates it's been a good. case firming. up rebel force and nato bombing casualties killings mass casualties mass destruction easy you reduce medio this mysterious out of hand saying and these are the initial report is a beast in tripoli and really there are you saying there's no way it is except for
3:10 pm
maybe a handful of deaths injuries that this is going on they live below the reporting propaganda net they're hiding the truth the truth is of course he said. it was written for him he went over i'm sure your crew he was in this business he was in the conflict watched in. needle absolutely do not want to do it let me quickly ask you about gadhafi daughter she's followed war crimes against nato and france for killing her family members we know that gadhafi may face charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes do you think no good that his daughter will get anywhere or do you think she'll see anybody held accountable for there's absolutely no doubt it's because justice is the only way out is a sure i was a last court. for waste that interest is not our stability if the worst of it would be good just. because you know you wonder what it's going to
3:11 pm
experience and for us at least it is a bit more and worse it is very just before it will be don't just leave it including cure all of them get off. these or perhaps well you and i've been talking about the situation in libya for some time now and no doubt we'll be talking about it again very soon in the meantime that's all we have time for at the moment stephen thanks very much indeed stephen lemon joining us there live in chicago radio host. well on our web site hard to dot com we want to know how you think libya's bad luck can be resolved and looking on the screen at the moment your responses so far nearly two thirds think that nato should withdraw and the thing that could there is one fifteen percent we can see say that things should continue as they are until the conflict eventually ends when eleven percent think only ground forces will resolve the situation and feel the u.n. should send in peacekeepers and split libya in to. the gathering of political and financial elite in switzerland and its plan of secrecy is in force
3:12 pm
quite an army of security guards it's all bankrolled by swiss taxpayers even as europe tightens its belts and forces through tough cuts the build of a conference is attended by people ranging from royalty to news outlets c.e.o.'s and is also under no traditional media blackout parties nor and that's how this report. as this building work meeting has progressed here in summer it's in switzerland more and more protesters have turned out to say they don't want it to happen here they're camping out outside the hotel showing up in numbers really from all over the world there are swiss people obviously but i will say many germans austrians swedes and even americans who come all the way here either to report on what's going on all just to protest here with their feet on the ground in person some of the people behind me say that they have been subject to great harassment by the swiss police threats of deportation things of that nature they have varying degrees of suspicion about the build a group some say that they are scheming behind closed doors to introduce
3:13 pm
a new world order but some just want to point out that in many countries it's illegal for elected officials to meet in secret in these kinds of surroundings let's hear what some of the process has told me the swedish and these the politicians are according to swedish law committing. treason and if they were sentenced if they were judged and sentenced they would be imprisoned for ten years to life according to swiss lot of people think it's a conspiracy theory but in fact is just the ignorance of the people we've known for a long time pretty much what's been going on there. and it's definitely not good for humanity not good for the planet and you know i don't want my kid growing up to be a slave in the new world order to be honest this is not the only protest day about kilometer away down in the town as the young swiss socialists have turned out again to process in fact they dismiss the people behind me they say
3:14 pm
a lot of the these people are essentially a crackpot conspiracy theorists but what they're here to say is this meeting goes against everything that they perceive to be switzerland that neutrality the transparency that they want to promote here. switzerland just isn't evident in the dealings of the build group the economic crisis is good policy or conference and to global leaders we see more democracy. this year's meeting in switzerland does look like a different affair from last year since it just in spain there are more processes here there's also more media attention a lot of alternative media journalists have turned up to try to report on what's going on although r.t. is the only international news station that's represented here so we are seeing more protests we are seeing better organized protests than we saw last year better organized media facilities so it does look like if this momentum can be carried on
3:15 pm
the build of a comfortable meeting in secret like this for very much longer that's pretty impressive. and he believes the media's blackout of the building conference is unacceptable going to be far reaching decisions made by those attending. it is pretty obvious to me that this is a can be most convenient way to distract attention to say the sort of mix up this very important meeting with other silly kind of spirits conspiracy theories and i can tell you my blood is boiling at the lack of coverage in the western world if you had all of the leaders of the main banks in the west all of these royalty all the chief executives as well as people like george osborne with his treasury team there and we're talking about an incredibly important meeting even if one of these groups were to meet up together it would be on our headlines but since they're all in the same place you would expect more coverage i mean even in the gaza going to get down there. isn't that the choice of the group they want
3:16 pm
a media blackout so they can discuss openly and honestly amongst themselves well being reported erroneously or whatever that they don't want the media to be there is that right. they don't want the media that's because i think what they're what they're up to in there is absolutely is no good we have to look at what nato is up to and it is very important to understand the very close links between nato and the builder bergs it was set up around about the same time as nato just after the second world war by the cia and the council on foreign relations who'd been talking about this during and after world war two and the idea that this organization is not important not important enough for us to know about in this country is just ridiculous around the western world because what's happening here is we are spending our years voting in local and general elections and this arrogant bunch are choosing our party leaders so it almost doesn't matter which way we vote we still find this secret artificial consensus which is cooked up at least build a book meetings spreads out around the world and it's not just me saying that this
3:17 pm
is will happen actually went to one of these meetings when he was still the editor of the observer newspaper here in britain. well for more on any of the stories we're covering here often want to see that interview in full you can always log on to our web site it's r.t. dot com and plenty of other features and news there for you there at the moment for example you can explain what jews in the u.s. believe and into the state of israel is the only solution to the conflict in the middle east. have little pebble or pull me primitive and put it up on their bikes to discuss social and economic issues. one a website hearty dot com and in global spirit a man with physical disabilities makes the eleven thousand kilometer trip from russia's far east to moscow all electric mobility scooter exam the question began his epic journey from the pacific city of lot of a stop in the middle of april since then he's brave several injuries in
3:18 pm

3:19 pm
are equipped in accordance with strict paralympic standards but in the city itself with its aging infrastructure still a lot has to be done to comply so she sidewalks shops and restaurants are also undergoing massive construction so comply with strict standards so that nowhere result and even though competition such as ice ledge parking and alpine skiing will be held far from the city center thanks to the games sochi will be more accessible for people with disabilities living a lasting legacy for locals and visitors alike russia's paralympic squad to overall standings at the vancouver two thousand and ten winter games with thirty eight medals twelve gold silver and sixteen bronze we spoke with russia's paralympic champion people as he was preparing for the three week training in sochi. russia will be hosting the pyramids it's good when the games are being held at home . and it's a great responsibility we just can't lose the first paralympic test events and open

3:21 pm
belittle this week let's talk about that. they are heroes because they console. everything they are they are from all of the security systems so what if a robber a bank robber is technically a. professional enough to get into a bank does that make him a hero to. the police department goes into certain things and the governor goes into certain things probably i would put that on the same level as i would someone who goes in and hacks into a site they're not supposed to be on they're hard to switch or fired thing for some kind of a logical points and harpist were just doing illegal activities. i think just to make. really open the leons to things that should be oh i don't have that much of a problem is that it's so subjective though why are we entrusting thieves essentially with making that kind of a judgment call. that's
3:22 pm
a strong word well they're going to take in people do information good or bad for the good or bad will if you're if you're going to end in your taking a lot of credit card numbers and credit card accounts and doing that type of thing and you're using that information to again hurt private citizens and i don't think that's a good thing have you ever had your personal information had i have actually yeah yeah and i felt. so violated and trying to control the information and stuff like that it's just. it's an awful feeling oh i think it's going to get worse much worse because i have five daughters ranging from twenty three down to twelve years old and they're yet you know they don't think anything's ever going to happen to them and they're out there with all of it in even though the warnings from here. they're the next generation so if you caught them putting stuff out there and you're like don't get out. cellphone numbers yeah i think hackers are villains or heroes the bottom line is if you have information in
3:23 pm
a database someplace in thirty years of potential target. you know we look at some other world news in brief at this stage of the don't know well got paid spanish police to break up a protest outside the city hall in the capital madrid. sworn in and it was organized by the growing protest movement. where it seizes a corrupt political system favoring the elites are both right and left and it was one of the wave of protests across the country gets high unemployment and corruption. refugees from syria been pouring into turkey on the syrian government tends to find its efforts against the rebel city of. good most residents reportedly abandoned the area and activists say that more than thirty people were killed in clashes between government troops and protesters taking to keep its border open to flee the genes. but russia close up there is next is the team expose
