british groups unions took part in that march that figure of one hundred thousand people so far unconfirmed by the police the police barricaded banks and shops in preparation for the march and they also threw up a ring of steel right around the headquarters of the new parliament commission story there was some minor scuffles in brussels around one hundred forty eight people were detained mainly because they were carrying things according to the police that weren't suitable for carrying on a march will had no place for carrying on a march but no injuries were reported that over in spain demonstrators clashed with the police slightly more severely they were throwing projectiles at the police marches in madrid and in barcelona and in barcelona students set fire to a police car they also blocked streets with rubbish bins and police fired rubber bullets on them in the end of the day we saw picketers throwing eggs at buses and blocking trucks on a main road in madrid and striking workers also staged
a sit in outside a bus station trying to prevent workers from crossing the picket line and going to work. also a big protest in arland those demonstrations were timed to coincide with members of the irish parliament going back to work after their summer recess to quite an unpleasant. reality for them there the major event of the day was that a cement mixer which was plastered with banking slogans was driven up the entrance to the irish parliament building and a man was arrested for that as i say they're generally a fairly peaceful day considering the number of people gathered also marches in portugal slovenia poland italy and but it has been announced that the unions in greece in athens will be planning demonstrations right into the evening because we haven't forgotten that in may three people were killed in athens demonstrations so i expect that everyone there will be hoping for no move on it's just we just don't know what's going to happen what is what the protesters are hoping to achieve. well
essentially what they're doing is saying no to the measures and they're trying to show the respective governments what they call the human face of budget cuts that are being proposed and implemented all over europe basically e.u. governments spent particularly the countries that we're now calling the pigs portugal italy ireland greece and spain in much the same way that we as ordinary people spend so now they have to borrow money they have to save money to pay that money back and how they're proposing to do that is by cutting pay they're going to raise the retirement age in some cases in some cases they're even cutting pension payments and they're slashing jobs in the public sector things that affect working people essentially and that in an effort. to restore a bit of budget to just men and restore confidence in the euro as a currency but people are saying it's not awful that the government spends the bankers. taxpayers' state money had to be used to belize banks out so ordinary
people shouldn't be the ones who have to suffer also there's a sort of. an academic argument going on which says these these protests this is a saying that actually cuts in danger. looks to be a fragile recovery and some of the economies in europe they're arguing that actually a better way to go would be tax increases on hiring come groups and also investing in public services and jobs rather than cutting them in this way right artie's lorimer on top of the story for us reporting from london thanks for that. david campbell bannerman a member of the european parliament from the u.k. independence party believes the single european currency is a key factor behind the current economic turmoil. i think the euro is teetering on the edge this is a manifestation of it this is a massive problem and you can throw hundreds of billions that it is they're trying to do but it's beyond i mean the real underlying problem is you're trying to force
together all these different types of column is doing very well others are very weak and you cannot force them together under one common currency call the euro the euro's the problem it's just unsustainable this as a say you know they're throwing hundreds of billions of euros that it and the germans are paying through the nose and you know the majority of germans now want to leave the euro and that's conceivable that we recreate all the national currencies or certain strong currencies leave although we currently one or the other. moscow's ousted mayor says he won't make any legal challenge that to the decision to sack him but will continue to take part in political life this follows reports that yuri luzhkov was considering appealing the decision to the russian supreme court for more on this i'm joined by r t. v with the latest hello hugo or so there won't be any legal action after all what's next for you. well first of all you will score that he's still going to have to make several visits to use former
office to gather some of his personal belongings and also speaking for the first time to the media since being sacked you said that he was not planning to challenge the president's decision to take him down from power as moscow's mayor in. import and previously there were reports in the media quoting. friend and state duma deputy. who did see that was planning to file an appeal to the supreme court of russia so now these reports have been denied by the mere himself he says that he will stay in politics although at the moment it's not clear exactly how he's going to do that just previously he. he got out of the united russia party sent a letter to the party officially stepping down from power and also complaining about what he called was a strong media campaign against him since you want you to is quite
a controversial figure he was the mayor of moscow for eighteen years that is quite a lot of time and that's why his sacking caused a mixed reaction among most whites and so many people supported you will scoff saying it was because of him that moscow received the new modern walk and also his policies towards pension years created quite a lot of support among many more stories however there are also a lot of people accusing the school for feeling to resolve traffic problems in the city or failing to protect some of the buildings on memorial so that more off the story heritage not only to get to moscow but to the entire nation as well were destroyed as moscow was getting the facelift and also us not forget he was course wife you know but that enough we start to be russia's richest businesswoman and many people do say that she was able to become so successful because of the risk of being the mayor of moscow. so not about are you going to lose culture replacement who's likely next to take charge of the city. at the moment of the city is
controlled by an interim government and also you know sports former team is still at power until the new mayor is appointed and a new government is put together under the old law the united russia party which holds the majority of the seats in the russian parliament passed to submit at least three candidates for the post of the head of moscow to the president who will then have to pick one of the candidates he would prefer best and i submit that this candidacy into the moscow parliament and least the united russia party has two weeks to submit these candidates to the president many analysts who do see that despite the fact that we still don't know. neither remains all these ten minutes they do say that we're going to find them out in the nearest future and perhaps more still could be seen but new head. has it within perhaps the next two weeks even all right r.t.c.
group is going to giving us the latest on the firing of moscow's. former leader of the u.s.s.r. my pal gorbachev says luzhkov gradually lost credibility over time although he believes he made a strong start in the job. if you will be in the first years of storms mayor and those were the most critical years when industry collapsed and the situation in the cities across russia was terrible he did a lot for moscow here exercised firm control over most schools resources and distributed them in the right way he supported all people women children and war veterans in those years i myself used to say that moscow was lucky to have such a mayor as good as you real a school of time past and law school started to change he had a billionaire wife by his side the authorities began to look more attentively spry but activities questions arose whether the mayor had room to wall to tackle problems a lot of things have now come to light it turned out that funds allocated for the
reconstruction and expansion of my school streets and routes were invested in some enterprises from which someone received a huge profit of sanctions in recent years have been far from good they've discredited his past achievements. fifteen suspected militants have been killed in two separate counter-terrorism operations in russia's southern republic of dagestan there is no reported casualties among the police the operation is the biggest success for security forces in dagestan over the past month relatives of the militants for us to persuade them to surrender but insurgents retaliated by opening fire last week in the region a suicide bomber blew himself up killing two policemen and mourning dozens of civilian. dagestan's neighboring republic of english add he is facing a similar battle with insurgents president yunus back you have corps of says the counterterrorist operations are vital to the survival of the southern regions. when you refer to. we don't want to brutally murder to punish anyone as a warning to others we just want to deal with this terrorist disease or perhaps we
don't have written permission from the terrorist patient we're treating but for now we don't have any other choice. the central asian nation of kyrgyzstan is gearing up for parliamentary elections the vote follows months of political uncertainty and ethnic violence in april kyrgyzstan was rocked by deadly riots in the capital bishkek that left dozens dead and led to the ousting of president back here in june ethnic clashes in the south of the country saw to two thousand dead and about a hundred thousand displaced the election only held on october tenth and more than two dozen parties are taking part parties are really going to go up or talk to one of the favorites. as the clock ticks towards the cristen elections the country holds its breath will the polls bring stability or plunge the country into another round of violence and chaos meet felix school of the country's former prime minister who could be next to lead the country following the controversial reigns
of this kind of cause and could not get bucky if coffee is one of the few figures who have not been tarnished in the last fifteen twenty years so if he has a pretty hard moral stand. this population and here is a good chance for us all we need in the next parliamentary election who have has a different times been the national security general the regional governor and mayor of the capital bishkek but what he's most renowned and praised for in his home country is an ability to handle crisis situations. in two thousand and five there were total mass marauders in the capital police and national security had all running away at that point that's when all of his friends revolutionaries asked him to take matters into his own hands and in three days he restored. but also has a reputation for being difficult. he was a close ally of both presidents at the beginning of their terms and soon fell out
of favor with both of them finding himself in opposition and twice in prison. they can never be two or three powerful figures at the top of the. pool of has always been a very powerful person and the key of the kind of have both felt that he could be the person to sweep them from their posts and take power into his hands some predict party our number which translates as dignity is in a strong position it could have will have to run against a multitude of other parties all of whom also fancy their chances of challenging him the problem is that it's very difficult to create a democratic country in central asia kyrgyzstan is the most democratic country in central asia unfortunately this is a very immature democracy and sometimes it leads to very bad results right now what kyrgyzstan needs is not a democracy or you would be entire i don't think it's possible in kyrgyzstan what it means is stability and violence whoever wins the election this is

economy over the summer what happened was that the markets started to focus very much on the concerns of a double digit in the u.s. and the fact that actually german growth was coming through very strongly and actually they were quite slow to realize that the sovereign crisis in the yours had never actually gone away spreads were actually rising over the summer particularly in august when we had all the concerns coming through about the cost of resolving the financial sector crisis it all and and i think now we're in a situation where the markets realize this isn't a one year problem it's a multi-year problem while europe is busy cutting its way out of crisis much to the displeasure of public sector workers and the data from the u.s. is anything but constituting investors are looking for the next growth areas top of that list appears to be the bric countries brazil russia india and china but other strong enough to perform well if the developed nations start going into reverse again at least one analyst thinks not if indeed there is
a second wave the second in the us or europe were two markets will not be able to sustain that growth why do was say but is that because of a large share of trade and capital flows still a link to the u.s. and europe and therefore you know that in so regional trade in the merger markets are still very small and therefore if the demand in the u.s. or europe tanks completely then the emerging markets will no longer be able to export their big chunk of their goods will see a freeze up on the in the trade exchange and therefore slow down and growth in short the emerging economies do not have the consumer to decouple they will not make it alone but given a move more outlook where the u.s. and europe can sustain some growth in the emerging markets looks to outperform this is clearly what many investors are expecting and it's likely to be reflected by money flowing towards the new markets. business. the russian active markets finished up on what will stay with us on the my six closing
