he would be so much brighter if you move out sam from france to crush you. start on t.v. dot com. week's top stories in today's news from our t.v. observers are set for syria as the u.n. issues its first resolution on the conflict designed to prop up the shaky cease fire. in egypt shortens the list of presidential candidates that's following the backside kicks of booted out of the race. it's the final push for france's top job as voters lurch to the extremes with concerns of immigration identity and imposing even you. and millions of christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of christ creating lavish easter ceremonies held in moscow.
you know you're watching artie's weekly news with me welcome to the program but first start more than a year of fighting in syria the un's most powerful body first resolution on the conflict a small team of announcement should services been deployed to oversee the fragile cease fire came into force on thursday. night has more now from new york. according to russian ambassador to the u.n. one russian officer will be part of the group heading to syria the resolution that was adopted also calls on all parties in in syria including the opposition to immediately seize all of our violence in all its forms this is what was the sticking point on friday and why the security council was wasn't able to go through
on a resolution friday because according to russia's position in the u.s. first drafted resolution i made many demands of the syrian government and no explicit demands of the syrian opposition or russian ambassador to the u.n. for tali churkin said at this critical junction is very very important for all syrian parties including our opposition to comply with the six point peace plan that was laid out by u.n. special envoy kofi annan on this of course also calls for an immediate cease fire and for an inclusive political process in syria in which the opposition groups and the syrian government engage in a dialogue with the russian ambassador said that moscow from the very beginning has been supportive of mr a knowledge of peace plan it is only he said through. balanced approach that the security council was able to reach a consensus on saturday but was given. a member of the other security council
members a draft resolution has been significantly. it became more balanced and started to seize more. of syria's government and the u.n. observer mission according to this resolution the un secretary-general ban ki moon will have to report back to the security council on april nineteenth regarding how the resolution is being implemented whether the observers are being granted access throughout soon. humanitarian officials are being granted access throughout syria if the syrian authorities and the syrian opposition is complying with what the security council's this monitoring mission will eventually grow to a team of two hundred fifty people we should know though that it does say in this resolution there are some there is a vague reference that if syria does not comply with what the security council is
asking further measures can be taken what those further measures are or is not clear yet i think at this point all security council members are hoping that the armed opposition group and the syrian government do comply with what's being asked and peace is finally established in syria well with present reforms apparently on the way to elections doing many syrians hope the u.n. cease fire will make change a reality so some of the reports. damascus greeted the ceasefire but it's sunny and high spirits rather than stiff to parts rather than streets and sprinklers not bullets all that needed judging you have this picture perfect morning was laden with fear and uncertainty as them a scenes anxiously awaiting news from the north. now as for the cease fire. you can walk the streets without fear least one day without hearing that somebody
was killed. that wasn't the case in the rest of the country and thursday proceedings were rocked by three blasts that killed and injured twenty five years though that is in a country that has grown accustomed to a daily death toll exceeding one hundred even that could be seen as a step forward to come to everyone here it is a region of politics. and it is the capital's all bizarre business. many locals have pressed for money interested few and far between for centuries trade was serious and to do. sectarian or religious conflict but it's politics that draw a wedge between syria communities and relieved to gather you know here in. the mostly everyone in the mosque in. homes and you know we like the. it was the dam
a scene soars that once held syria to war there are few rypien crusaders some fear that syria may become the target of yet another one day western compress it would again seek to impose its values this time it twenty first century weapons. blast and the infallible demisting for its isn't purpose possible for syrians seeing themselves as a nation of great warrior school valuable or above everything else but a revolutionary violence strange country more and more syrians are far more eager to amplify than the other part of their cultural heritage that are peace loving peace cherish a nation. at least true that syria doesn't have a long record of political pluralism in main rallying cry of the opposition there are efforts to change their nine political parties in recent months some of them openly seeking to challenge the dominance of the ba'ath party. we used to have
three times religion sex and politics at least we can talk about politics now that there is a member of the party of supporters it can boast only fourteen hundred people so far they're still figuring out the details of their political agenda but the first says he's pretty certain of the means it will not be used to achieve it. but it's true that the regime has a long way to go to make our political system more inclusive but we also have to agree that using any kind of violence and politics is unacceptable politics is about. compromising with your rivals and you can't do that while shooting in many here is think that if there is any force that can unite syrians these days is the opposition the opposition to war it's unavoidable ardsley damascus syria or shortly in the program the whistleblower turns inquisitor two days from the controversial wiki leaks founder julian assange nears his new interview show there
are no teeth look ahead. ten of the twenty three candidates who want to run for egypt's presidency have been banned from taking part in next month's election thousands of businesses run it in support of a new law venting former regime officials from entering the race which has now been rubber stamps by military rulers excluded candidates are too ill and supporters demonstrations are expected in the cabinet. for most people most women and one of the two muslim brotherhood candidates can rest adventurous and reason is the lists of full control. i believe this law is unconstitutional because the supreme constitutional law. and court has to review any legislation that affects the presidential elections the muslim brotherhood were creeping towards
grasping all the power in egypt the first they had. to overwhelm the civil societies the unions then the second phase of this tricky dick plan is to overwhelm and control the alleged. so they are accelerating the pace in controlling the power in egypt controlling those dimensions or key players in the political scene in egypt online and we want to know who you think benefits from egypt planning these candidates that become president are so far dot com thirty six percent of you say the ruling military council. here is the mists ok but over a quarter don't think anyone will benefit just a few percent so far liberal democracy at risk skew this to their advantage. paves
your voice and while you're there take a look at some other stories on the nineteenth day including cutting off the rebels' rewards and those who fought against the law he suspended his fraud exposes payouts to the head details of the party dot com. records lawmakers new delhi's voters who play up an election list for every candidate is an alleged criminal. outing dot com and child. wait is almost over wiki leaks a whistleblower to the sun comes to our t.v. early next week his new show will feature engineers and powerful people from around the world as our correspondent explains. the first episode of the show will be broadcast on tuesday april seventeenth about this tuesday coming and we and julian together are really hoping this is going to be an explosive new show i can't tell you the name of the first guest you'll have to chew name yourselves to find that
out on cheese day but i can tell you that they are all opinion formers some of them dissidents and some of them have never been interviewed before on english language television the first guest is particularly controversial and according to julian in the wake of the interview highly charismatic so you can find out what that's all about i met with him recently and i talked all about the show how he chose his guests why he decided to do it and of course he spent a lot of time sitting on the other side of the interview his desk and he told me a bit about his disenchantment really with the mainstream media and why he chose me to broadcast first this show the things that we're going to report. being covered. in the mainstream press. what works. for kurtz gently or not this week coming up for the week in which the first show is
going to be broadcast is really a week of anniversaries for him both personal and professional it's going to be five hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assault by two swedish women began now we've seen that at the request of his extradition go through the courts here in the u.k. right up to the supremes courts which in that case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now we still don't have a hit we are expecting it possibly to come next week but there's still no set date that verdict to be handed down and still after five hundred days no charges have been laid against him it's also five hundred days since the wiki leaks bank accounts were first frozen so that has made funding for wiki leaks very difficult. and threatening that whistle blowing organization altogether i mean really that's what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived while a soldier was virtually living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this
verdict on his extradition there's two reasons first of all being on the house was sort of more interesting because that are. more about the world and the conversations we were having a quite interesting. for the people what was going on that's one reason the second reason is that someone who has given them want me to speak for them that's been on the receiving end of a very aggressive. i felt i wasn't getting much from working. pretty quickly to just. sort of the response. to. the context that i want to have a different sort of people. but approach has been difficult and sometimes i think it's also succeeded. very very sides or very interesting reporting. and not normal because dealing with. you know it was not going to stop the house
arrest. of course from political problems. so you can see the full version of that interview on monday the sixteenth of april and that will be followed hot on the heels by the first episode of the program on shoes day the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting the verdict on g.n.r. songes extradition but we are quite glad that he's managed to make this program before whatever happens to him happens to him obviously his main fear has always been that he will be extradited from sweden to the u.s. . there hasn't been easy here he. is to get the maximum with. the source. what helps keep journalism. we want to present. something.
north korea is celebrating a century since the birth rate what time did camille stone his grandson and currently that kim jong un made his first public speech praising the country's military might in the calling for even more result i think didn't mention it was friday that failed that long range rocket mission from yang it says it was supposed to put a satellite in orbit put into the scene moments after blast off the u.n. resolutions and sparked a wave of global condemnation america has even suspended two hundred million dollars worth of food aid to north korea asia expert jim walsh says the rocket launch scott that he stalks it did not go off course in a way where japan or south korea felt compelled to shoot it didn't because i think there could have been a trip wire could have caused you know the possibly best collision and. the bench that no one would want so if they all failed peacefully if you will the problem is
as a consequence of this we're not going to have the six party talks we're going to actions in the united states really hard for us president to restart negotiations or participate in them after procedures provocative acts and there is no one's talking which means this is dangerous. the battle for french votes is intensifying as presidential rivals nicolas sarkozy and france are aligned hold sunday rallies in paris election is just a week away and with immigration and identity taking center stage this are syria looks at whether france's witnessing a seismic shift to the right. anti immigration and to euro anti globalization and advocates of protectionism. all in the name of the french state and national identity there is not a single french person not one european who does not know that i am a sworn enemy of the european single currency buskers its radical islam is
a direct consequence of mass immigration that the left and the right imposed on us for decades is that no. traditionally on the fringes of france's national politics the rhetoric of today's far right may no longer be as far off for its citizens as it once was opinion polls suggest the presidential candidate marine le pen of the ultra right wing national front party is third with potentially ten million votes its biggest support base ever there is no producer from france so if you speak french. it doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want. to play king and so we thought of one. of the different communities but those people gather. as an identity let's destroy them so. enter lipans with her calls for economic patriotism
prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the french back their jobs. and center right incumbent nicolas sarkozy stands accused of jumping on the far right bandwagon some say for the ballot sake. our integration system is getting worse and worse why because we have too many foreigners in our territory threatening to withdraw from the shame game border free agreement by no coincidence at a time when europe is seeing an influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in north africa and the middle east this is a. case so we have to see the. window this. knows pretty well he was elected in two thousand and seven only because he was able to catch. the notion of a no win situation. some say that what was once a protest vote is now
a more permanent part of the french political spectrum so. there is certainly a part of the electorate who vote for the reasons of dissent but i think it must now be recognized in if it's difficult to accept that the vote for the national front is increasing the vote of support but we increasing prominence are right with rhetoric in france especially the lead up to the presidential elections the school year was more difficult to decipher is whether this growing support for the right reflects the direction the fungicide of values has taken or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country. that's our solar artsy paris we're turning now to some of today's world news for the first time in fifteen months iran has met with major world powers of its nuclear program they convened in turkey and they'll go around making promises to end its program they all agreed to further discussions next month in baghdad tehran insists its
project is peaceful western nations are in states developing nuclear weapons. so don has noticed a bomb raids on the disputed border oil town it was seized a few days ago by south sudan which accuses its neighbor of korea airstrikes killing five civilians fighting between the two countries is escalating its insensible gained independence last july. there's been a major jailbreak in northwest pakistan really four hundred inmates escaped after is the newest insurgents in the prison with guns and grenades early on sunday morning some of the prisoners are kind of think it's the taliban says it carried out the raid. well for millions of orthodox christians in russian around the world it's easter sunday across russia people gathered in churches to take part in an easter vigil to market worshippers believe is
a resurrection of jesus christ artie's time but christ the same cathedral where the main service was led by a shark. easter services in the russian orthodox tradition are designed to be both long services but also very beautiful services stylized markings of the key moments in the story of christ's death and his resurrection on the third day a key moment in the service is the easter vigil when the priests walk in a circle around the church holding candles and they also change their outfits three times during the service from black which represents lent through the purple which represents the passions that christ went through and on to one which represents the resurrection itself. the holy fire has also arrived here in moscow this easter as it has done since the eleventh century when it first made that journey from the church of the holy circle in jerusalem the story surrounding the fire is
that a light shines through the roof of the church of the holy sepulcher every easter in jerusalem i'm somehow manages to light two candles one of which is brought to moscow and is then taken around to many orthodox churches a very special symbolic moment for the russian orthodox church easter the russian orthodox church also comes at the end of a great lead seven weeks of fasting no meat and no dairy products but at the end it is time to bring out some special foods with a special connection to easter what is cool it's a cake that's sweet and filled with raisins another is named after easter in russian lang. which. it's a sweet desserts. also designed to be a celebration after the long weeks of fasting and also that universal symbol of
easter eggs many are painted and often shared with probably members and all are taken to priests at easter blessing with holy water and will be shared around by orthodox families the world over as will lisp raise in thirty thousand russian orthodox churches and their communities around the world the traditional russian orthodox greeting will be said at easter christ has risen and it will be answered with another reply that traditional russian orthodox reply indeed it has risen. there from russia and poland two years since a polish president lech kaczynski died in a plane crash in the russian city of. countries held memorials on seems like ninety six people died in the crash as a high profile published an occasion traveled to commemorate victims of the stalinist massacre of thousands of posts of which was russia and poland have undertaken two years of its investigation into the trash they also usually blamed
russian air traffic control facilities until their official probes concluded that pilot technical problems were to blame poland still believes there are unanswered questions which has agreed to help us to get. from death row to life sentence which in our supply justice campaign issue for three decades he was jailed for killing a police officer in one thousand nine hundred one since then he supported rallied tirelessly insisting he never had a fair trial r.t. the first chance to speak since he left. from exclusive conversation next first his interview. oh look once and for life and you know when. and if you can monitoring it recruiting this call and more than half of his life monitored and controlled watched by the f.b.i. since the age of fourteen revolutionary activist and journalist jamal spent three
decades of his life on death row i'd like to tell myself that i've actually spent a lot of time. boris and in other countries you know. in other parts of the world could be a really good politics and so far. the truth about it is very most years in my lifetime. in january media had his sentence reduced to life without parole he called in to speak exclusively with archie from prison the feeling of looming execution still hard for him to shake. in my own mind. if. i'm still in one thousand eighty one the former black panther was accused of killing a police officer in philadelphia has always maintained his innocence his analysis is a revolutionary analysis that this system is rotten to its core that it's race is class
is sexist evil and that is the head the leader of an imperialist damnation of the world it is this money and his supporters say that led to his arrest a police frame up against a revolutionary journalist and activist very well known organizer in philadelphia outspoken against police abuse while the u.s. claims to not hold political prisoners has become one of the most well known in the world and honorary a lot of holding citizen in over twenty cities with a street named after him in france so. to me as books have been translated. into nine languages and so on hundreds of thousands of copies its case is one of the most to beat it in modern legal history fifteen of the police officers involved in collecting evidence in means trial were later charged with corruption and tampering
with evidence to obtain a conviction fifteen of the thirty three. or four supporters symbol of a flawed justice system only a set of us prisons are built for the broken and the homeless well mass incarceration in america has reached an thinkable level in california alone. that the finances of belgium of england and perhaps you i could name for five of the countries combined so it's this monstrous to me and says the adoption of laws like the patriot act and the end have given big brother tactics a legitimacy unimaginable when he was still a free man everything that was illegal back in the one nine hundred sixty for nineteen fifties and nineteen seventies they realized they realized they realized the very things that f.b.i. agents and administrators knew was criminal back then so where is america headed selection in the united states right now who people trust who would you vote for.
right because most of the people that are out there of the two major political parties when they thought it all i hear is a kind of it's not reasonable. wish to return to. your nineteen days or they talk about the perpetuation of the american empire imperialism by god what is there to hope for as our fifteen minute monitors phone calls from jail wraps up it has been some concern to me as a message for those who believe in him organize organize organize and i love you all and i thank you for fighting for me well it's like together to be free and still he churkin a party new york. well just ahead for you a recap of our top story stating.
