Cyprus banks bailout

Banks have re-opened in Cyprus, allowing access to savings for the first time in almost two weeks. There’s little relief for cash-strapped citizens though, with severe restrictions imposed on how much money they can withdraw. The limits are set to prevent a bank run, making Cyprus the first Eurozone nation to introduce capital controls. For more on what’s going on RT talks to correspondent Tesa Arcilla who’s outside the bank in Nicosia.

Bank of Cyprus workers protest outside central bank

There have been protests outside the Cypriot central bank by Bank of Cyprus workers who are worried about the future of their jobs.

One protester told the BBC’s Tim Willcox that the actions of the head of the Cypriot bank, Panicos Demetriades, were “causing the closing of the Bank of Cyprus”.

Mr Demetriades has said that “superhuman” efforts are being made to open the country’s banks on Thursday.

Banks in the country have been shut for more than a week as a controversial bailout was negotiated, which will see depositors take losses.

Witness a Peace Movement

A documentary from the streets of the U.S. Anti-War Movement

Witness a Peace Movement was shot over a three year period during the birth, and formative years of the revitalized U.S. Anti-War Movement (2003 – 2006). A personal document of the opinions, and actions of a cross-section of the millions of people who protested against, or in support of, the War on Iraq. Filmed with a first person shooting style that places the audience right in the middle of the both the action of the U.S. Anti-War Movement and the experience of the Director; this is a rebellious film that serves as a witness to the strengths and short comings of the massive Peace Movement that grew in response to the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq.

In the months leading up to the invasion of Iraq, America saw the mobilization of one of the largest Anti-War Movements in its nations history. Here and around the world millions of people poured into the streets demanding the U.S. not attack Iraq. This public outcry against the war coalesced where this film begins, during the largest day of international protest in world history, February 15, 2003. The message was clear “Do not attack Iraq.”

President George W. Bush dismissed these massive protests as being a mere “focus group.” Witness a Peace Movement goes deep inside the activities of the protest movement at cities across the country, from heated demonstrations in major cities like New York to the rooftops of small town Athens Ohio, to bring a story that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media yet has, in effect, changed Americans prevailing perception of the Iraq War.
