3:01 pm
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 and they're trying to show their respective governments what they call the human face of budget cuts that are being proposed and implemented all over europe basically e.u. governments of overspent particularly the countries that we're now calling the pigs portugal italy greece and spain and 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 but people are saying it's not awful that the government spent by. and then then that
3:02 pm
taxpayers state money had to be used to belize banks out so you know ordinary people shouldn't be the ones who have to suffer these process this is a saying that actually cuts in danger. what 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 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 but 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 trying to do but it's beyond i mean the real underlying problem is you trying to force together all these different types of column is some of the doing very well others are very weak and you cannot force them together under one common currency call the euro the euro's
3:03 pm
the problem it's just unsustainable this as a say you know they're throwing hundreds of billions of euros out to 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 currency is for certain strong currencies leave all that we currently one or the other still add in the program the land is not for sale that's the message for many indian farmers who are protesting and dying to protect their only source of income all the details coming up on r.t. . but first the ousted mayor of moscow says he won't make any legal challenge to the decision to sack him but will continue to take part in political life this was reports that yuri luzhkov was considering appealing the decision at the russian supreme court artie's corresponding as the latest. speaking for the first time to the media since being sacked you said that
3:04 pm
he was not planning to challenge the president's decision to take him down from power as moscow's mayor and in import and previously there were reports in the media quoting a course of friend and state duma deputies who was of cops on who did see that mosque or was planning to file an appeal to the supreme court of russia so now these reports have been denied personally by the ex mary himself 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 officially got out of the united russia party said today 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 when you do score he's 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 was a mixed reaction among most whites and sweeney people who supported you saying that
3:05 pm
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 squads 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 and the morals of that wore off historic 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 your. wife you don't know about that enough was thought 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 at the moment of course former team is still at power until the new mayor is appointed and the new government is a put together under the old law the united russia party which. holds the majority of the seats in the russian palm and passed to submit at least three candidates for
