at four thirty pm moscow time these are the top stories from r t greece is shaken by protests over government plans to pull the country out of its debt hole raising taxes and cutting jobs a final vote to outline implementation of the radical austerity measures is underway. the u.k. braces itself for mass destruction of hundreds of thousands of public sector workers prepare for twenty four hours of industrial action and responding to prime changes to pay and pensions. and moscow points to double standards at the
8:31 am
un over the organization's position on syria saying the crisis there warrants only a peaceful solution the foreign minister sergei lavrov says the security council should be calling for action and if ignoring what he calls a civil war. next we talked to british union leader mark who says public sector workers won't stop until they achieve their goals. today i'm talking to marx to watch because he's one of the brains behind the thirtieth of june nationwide strikes in the u.k. he's head of the public and commercial services union he's three hundred thousand members are walking out of a proposed reforms to the pension scheme it's just what it's for talking to r.t. today now this is possible plan to cut public spending in this country just how
8:32 am
drastic are these cuts going to be gives an impression of what they might mean for the cuts of the biggest that most people will have seen in their lifetime our projected to mean half a million jobs lost in the public sector six hundred thousand jobs in the private sector as a direct result we're seeing changes in the delivery of welfare cuts in funding of education for young people and also a tax on people's pensions in addition to that in many of the communities up and down the country will see libraries close cuts in social care services everything that people have taken for granted over yours. you seem to see these cuts in terms of right and wrong almost a moral position but isn't there a bottom line that has to be respected for example they didn't reform and soon it looks like they might be able to afford teachers or nurses. in greece this is the fifth largest economy in the world and if you look at historically the british economy for fifty consecutive years from one nine hundred eighty nine words our
8:33 am
debt as a proportion of our g.d.p. was double what it is now then we built millions of houses schools hospitals well first recognizing actually economically these cuts will make it worse far better to cut the deficit by employing people with them pay tax and insurance rather than throw them onto welfare where actually they depress the economy and we think make friends with us you've said that the government cuts are now just attack on working people. but how do you think this strikes your pacing will affect the government and the ruling class is what having three quarters of a million people from four different unions on strike is something how this hasn't happened in this country for decades it's the start not the finish matters to the government is if they try to ignore we'll come back in the autumn and we may well see millions of people on strike so the idea here is to build pressure so the government realise that working people the length and breadth of the u.k. are not just going to let them get away with what they're doing and we believe that
8:34 am
pressure ultimately can force them to change direction the government's bill for pensions at the moment is around thirty billion pounds which does seem excessive a lot of money how do you suggest that they reduce states i don't think they should reduce it i'm quite clear that the retirement of dignity and old age where you don't have to struggle to make ends meet should be what we aspire for in the fifth richest country in the world and so my view is public sector pensions and our pension provision is important and instead of a risk to the bottom where we see the worst provision in the private sector becoming the model i'd like to see a rising pension provision i'm saying it's a priority for people to have a decent retirement and be done in many ways cutting the renewal of trident for example would save us enough money to pay for those pensions for three or four years in the tax gap where the richest people in britain avoid paying over one hundred billion a year would actually mean these pensions look fairly cheap in comparison and you
8:35 am
mentioned the private sector and private sector workers say that actually the public sector has a very good deal when it comes to pensions a lot better than a lot of private sector provision i do you think there's really public support for what you would say probably opinion polls seem to tell us already a majority of people actually believe the public sector pensions are important arriving at the right level of study to be higher that's incredible when you think of the propaganda we've had over the last two years from politicians in the media telling everybody the public sector pensions are the cause of people. the problem my masters to private sector workers is they are being exploited by their shareholders and by the company chiefs not by public sector workers pensions and we should have a campaign that seeks to drive all pension levels up not cut down to the worst what's your bottom line what would you accept in terms of pension reform well i personally believe that it is not acceptable to make anyone to pay a penny more for their pension when the valuation of public sector pension schemes say they are costing less because that's not about pensions it's about raising
8:36 am
taxes to solve the deficit i don't believe people should be forced to work longer and i don't believe people should have the levers of their pension slashed so where we are in the talks at the moment unless the government fundamentally accepts they have to talk about those things and i believe the industrial action is going to take place you have said in fact that the government doesn't look like it's prepared to negotiate so what's the point of striking. when the point is to change their mind and saying you won't negotiate just when they are in a chat with a few people in a room is one thing saying you want to go see it when there could be millions of people taking strike action is entirely another and we actually believe that the six million trade unionists plus the thousands and thousands or hundreds of thousands of pensioners and students all becoming a joint campaign is going to be prolifically very powerful we've already seen in britain a march of one hundred five hundred thousand people three months ago transform the political mood in this country all of a march can do that our view is well local strikes actually do how exactly do you
8:37 am
think that march changed political me is transformed in that it was on the front page of the newspapers it was on every t.v. station and it gave people a confidence that however small a community and i have a small they've seen for example in a library they understood they were part of a much much wider problem and i think that's given us confidence to move from a march to now for unions ballots and numbers of members voting overwhelmingly for a strike so it's. clearly transforming not just confidence but the opinion polls clearly are shifting whereas a majority before said they are poor strikes now in the most recent polls a majority says they are sympathetic to the crisis that we're seeing it may cause. reckless financial services sector do you think there's political will now to create a more responsible banking community. where i would always question whether the exists when the carbon twenty three multimillionaires in that when they have
8:38 am
members themselves who have benefited in the past by playing fast and loose with taxes although you go clearly not morrow therefore i don't actually believe there is a political will of this government to actually ensure that the rich should pay for the problems of the rich coursed but the banking sector should pay for the problems the banking sector caused and as we're doing this interview members on fifteen thousand pounds a year struggling to make ends meet holidays facing having their pensions slashed when they see bankers who are already million as trousering millions more and donna says that's got to be fundamentally unfair since the crisis began. into a new war in a foreign country and recently the air force said that he needed more money to sustain a campaign in libya and also in afghanistan do you think there is a moral vacuum in westminster that causes these kinds of things to happen that the government would cut spending and to enjoy another war abroad while i think there
8:39 am
isn't any politico consistency quite clearly we've been told there were strapped for cash everything that we hold dear has to be slashed and yet we can still talk about renewing trident and fighting wars overseas irrespective of the cost my own view is that the war in afghanistan and the current war in libya wrong they misjudged what people claim are about and we should actually find a way out of those pretty quickly and not make the situation in those countries worse as well as at the same time. take valuable resources that could go into schools and hospitals and finally you opposite number at unison the country's biggest union is stressing this wave of industrial action that carries. are you prepared to join us oh absolutely we we've made it clear that i was striking is the start of a process we want more and more people to be involved not because we want to be on strike because we want the government to set up and take notice so i very much welcome the comments of practice in unison and we want to work very closely with him and all the other trade unions in britain to ensure that when working people
8:40 am
are making a protest the protest is this politics and it's possible because it's designed to get the government to change their minds not so welcome thank you very much like you. know. twenty years ago in largest country. just to raise interest. if. one had been trying. to teach began the journey. where did it take. wealthy british scientists scientists time to.
