e.u. protesters taking their anger to. step by step activists from the fifteen m. movement hope to make europe a better place the point of it is to inform people that might not be informed about about things that they can do in their local government and to find out what problems they're having in their local government. in their small towns and to help them come come up with solutions we have reunions every evening we get to the village we need with the locals and they tell us what's going on in their town. the organization was born from the protest marches in spain where more than twenty percent are jobless and youth unemployment is painfully over forty percent the highest in europe it's these numbers the drove thousands of madrid streets in may now the financial foot soldiers are beating a path to brussels and some other countries their problems are.
12:03 pm
even bigger. because. big. strangely. overall the whole chain. all together to change that to change the things we we we march like a. symbol for everybody to join us rachel is one of many non spanish europeans with whom the fifteen m. message present made it knowing that if there is one thing europeans do agree on it's who to blame. promising rescue but livery recession is a lot of corruption there's a lot of injustice and people want to change that people also in other countries i'm happy with it. in general the way the world is run with a lot of money in the hands of a few of the banking system. manipulation and the corruption of.
12:04 pm
political system and there be can. people power works if it's large and people are realizing that we do have power to change things in a certain way and basically we just have to get on the streets and make our voices heard so the idea is to go to. kind of well the central european parliament and all the things that the muscles. particularly to to basically protest that we're not having our human rights respected in the place where this is going to say that it will take them two months to march this fifteen hundred plus kilometers to reach brussels where the last thing on their mind will be putting their feet up greece portugal spain people those in their jobs and their homes and while the politicians in these countries insist the situation could get better common people believe current economic policies are the eurozone lead down the road to nowhere in the last party. but to discuss the situation in the e.u.
12:05 pm
we can now talk to dr richard wellings from the u.k.'s institute of economic affairs he joins us live now from london thank you very much for being with us here on. the e.u. commission president wants to inflate the bailout fund but if italy or spain do succumb could money to bail him out really be found. where we're looking at such huge amount the phone could end up being over a trillion euro so the problem is once you get into those sort of figures then the economies the public finances of france and germany and the major euro countries are then under threats so there's really threats and so really growth in germany in france and the conflicts could be lost in those countries well it seems that those major eurozone economies are under threat and. has admitted that this crisis is now spreading to the likes of italy and spain of course we're talking at the moment so why is it happening at the moment just how serious is it when those major economies in the euro zone are now being affected. it's extremely serious and i think to be
12:06 pm
honest looking at the figures i think a lot or some sort of default for italy is almost inevitable because they have to go and ask to borrow something like five hundred billion euros by the end of twenty third so you know just a particular problem at the moment because all the other major economies are trying to borrow huge amounts of funds from the markets at the same time so i really can't see any way out because we've heard in our report just angry protesters a plain decision makers of the e.u. for their troubles you agree with them. well i don't think the current decisions are making a huge amount of difference but the main problem is actually a failed experiment in itself that was instigated decades a couple of decades ago and obviously if you have a one size fits all interest rates over a huge geographical area you're going to conflate these different problems all over the region and it's going to end up in tears because it will be huge restructuring is going to rule out especially in southern europe just to make their economies bring about the competitiveness of germany and so on so really the whole system is
12:07 pm
fundamentally flawed to end up in tears you're saying that the eurozone could indeed collapse well actually i think if we're going to be sensible be european elites should be actually trying to work out. a responsible way for the euro to break open for countries such as greece to leave the eurozone i think in the long run that's the only way otherwise they help your economies in northern europe are going to be brought down by the whole region but isn't there an argument that this could actually perhaps strengthen a union whereby we might see further economic integration integration whereby. member countries will be told how to tax and how to spend their public expenditure where we see the whole system being centralized that could be the key to keeping all of the eurozone together couldn't it because we've seen these profits countries like italy and spain spending far too much money and actually rocking the boat. i mean there is russia this is actually a danger you would end up with a european transfer union where the richer northern countries are subsidizing
12:08 pm
permanently the poorest certain european countries which is what we see in existing currency unions like the u.k. where you have heard the southeast and london dies in propping up places like wells in northern ireland which basically no real economy and you can source on the european scale that would be disastrous for the healthier economy is in northern europe. germany fer out of all of this there is talk indeed that germany could be very much strengthened by this current crisis even though i don't think that's true i think you're well no because the danger is obviously if we get a transfer union then german taxpayers will have to. suddenly european neighbors also there's a danger of course with the bailout the german debt levels are going to spiral out of control and of course at the back of all that we certainly see peter de buying bonds in the danger of more printing money to get out of the crisis so there are inflationary dangers in the medium to long term from this richard wellings of the u.k. based institute of economic affairs joining us live in london thanks very much indeed

12:12 pm
the international situation and the fact is that syria has been under pressure by the u.s. and its allies but really it really is and i think that one of the worries of business and had is that introducing a critic before would actually be exploited an attempt to get rid of government by backing opposition parties etc so i think the western line on syria very counterproductive what this is all about is the west trying to. come to syria i want to see who they are credit syria where you can express their opinions freely but the western policies are character productive this is a problem that syrians have to solve and nobody else it's not up to all. u.s. government anybody else trying to its appearance at the serious or. well if you've missed anything in the program here on screen you can always go to our web site you can find more stories news updates and i catch some video it on t.v. dot com it's online all the time here's a taste of what's there at the moment for you right now and the epic story from central russia and find out why a deaf and blind to the with the with talk of fire he's been pulled from the
