 A country that surrounded be water ran out of it.The answer is coming your way. I'm Carl Azuz welcomimng you to this Thuesday edition of CNN student news.

 
First up, anger in athenes as Greek protesters take over the streets of their capital city. Earlier this week We talked about Greece being in financial trouble. The goverment is trying to find ways to cut spending in order to avoid going broke. They've already made some changes including layoffs1 and salary cuts, and they are planing to do more. Obviously this is no going over well with Greek citizens. Yesterday thousand of them march trough Athenes, speaking out against their goverment and its cuts. They actually shut down part of the city. There was also a nationwide strike by public workers that shut down the athenes airport, government offices and schools. Some high school students held their own protests at schools that were in session.
 
Several countries are trying to find ways to stop the violence that's been going on in Syria. Protesters there are speaking out against their president, and Syrian goverment forces are reportedly cracking down on the protesters. The United Nation Security Council voted on a resolution Tuesday that would have called an immediate2 end to the violence. But two of the Council's permanent members, China and Russia, voted no, so the resolution didn't pass. China said it wouldn't have helped Syria's situation. Russia was concerned it might send the wrong message. The "no" votes led some of pretty harsh words from other nations. "The United States is outraged3 that this Council has utterly4 failed to adress a urgent more challenge and a growing threat to regional peace and stability." "This veto will not stop us. No veto can give carte blanche to the Syrian authority who has lost full legitimacy5 in assasinating and killing6 their people."
 
There is a bill that moving through the US Senate that could take aim at one of America's trading partners, China. This bill would put a tax on any product that come from the nation whose currency is undervalued. China has been accused of manipulating its currency to keep it weak. Now why whould a country want to so that? If your currency is weak, it means your products are cheaper to buy. That might be good for the country with the weak currency, but if you are an American manufacturer, it means having to compete cheaper Chines products. The senators who support this bill says they are trying to help pout7 Amercian companies. But some of leaders in the House of Representatives say the US should not get involved with another country's currency."I think it's pretty dangerous to make move on legislation through United States Congress on forcing someone to deal with the value of their currency. This is well beyond, I think, what the Congress ought to be doing."
