a peaceful solution foreign minister sergey lavrov says the security council should not be calling for action while ignoring what he describes as a civil war in yemen. well next we talk to british union leader marcus said walker says public sector workers won't stop until they achieve their goals. today i'm talking to mark hughes one of the brains behind the thirtieth of june nationwide strike in the u.k. he's head of the public and commercial services union three hundred thousand members are walking out of a proposed reforms to the pension scheme thanks for talking to r.t. today now this is possible to plan to cut public spending in this country just how drastic are these cuts going to be give us an impression of what they might mean for the cuts to the biggest that most people will have seen in their lifetime
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 services everything that people have taken for granted over you as. you seem to see these cuts in terms of right and wrong almost a moral position but isn't there has to be respected for example they didn't reform and soon it looks like they might not be able to afford. this is the fifth largest economy in the world and if you look at historically the british economy for fifty consecutive years from one thousand nine hundred on words our debt as a proportion of our g.d.p. was double what it is now then we've millions of houses schools hospitals and.
recognizing actually economically these cuts will make it worse far better to cut the deficit by employing people who pay tax and insurance rather than throw them on to wealth where actually they depress the economy and we think things worse you've said that the government. just. working. but how do you think the strike. affects the. ruling class is what having three quarters of a million people from four different unions on strike is something that hasn't happened in this country for decades it's the start not the finish 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 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. force them to change direction the government's bill for pensions at the moment is around thirty billion pounds which does seem
a lot of money do you. think they should reduce 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 all pension provision is important and instead of a risk to the bottom where we see the worst pension provision in the private sector becoming the model i'd like to see a raw using the pension provision and saying it's a priority for people to have a decent retirement could 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. 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 mentioned the private sector and private sector workers say that she the public sector has a very good deal when it comes to pensions a lot better than
a lot of private sector provision do you think there's really public support for what you're doing the opinion polls seem to tell us already a majority of people actually believe the public sector pensions are important and arriving at the right level should even 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 you would do except 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're costing less because that's not about pensions it's about raising 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 your mind and saying you won't negotiate just when they're having a chat with a few people in a room is one thing saying you won't negotiate when there could be millions of people taking strike action is entirely another 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 transformed the political mood in this country from march can do however is about what could strikes actually do how exactly do you think that march changed the political needs is transformed in that it was on the front page of the newspapers it was on every
t.v. station and it gave people the confidence that however small the community and i have a small they have seen for example keeping 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 balloting members or members voting overwhelmingly for a strike so it's. clearly transforming not just people's confidence but the opinion polls clearly. whereas a majority before said they oppose strikes now in the most recent polls a majority says they are sympathetic to the crisis that we're seeing at the may. do you think there is political will to create a. community. where i would always question whether the exists when the. twenty three multi-millionaires in that when they have members themselves who have benefited in the past by playing fast and loose with. all the ego clearly not
morrow therefore i don't actually believe there is a political will. to actually ensure that the rich should pay for the problems that the rich caused 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 the holidays facing having their pensions slashed when they see bankers who are already million as trousering millions more in bonuses to be fundamentally unfair since the crisis. has entered into a new war in a foreign country and recently. said he needed more money to sustain in libya and. do you think there is a moral. cause these days kinds of things to happen that the government spending. well i think there isn't any politico consistency quite clearly we've been told that. everything that we hold dear has to be slashed and yet we can still talk
about renewing on fighting wars overseas irrespective of the cost my own view is that the war in afghanistan and the current war in libya wrong misjudged what people claim that. we should actually find a way out of those pretty quickly not make the situation in those countries worse as well as at the same time. you could go into schools and hospitals and finally you office at number eight you know the country's biggest union is stressing this wave of. are you prepared to join us oh absolutely we we've made it clear that our strike is the start of a process we want more and more people to be involved because we want to be on strike because we want the government to set up so i very much welcome the comments of you know we want to work very closely with him and all the other trade unions in britain to ensure that when working people protest the protest is possible because it's designed to get the government to change their minds thank you very much.
i was just thinking about my future before the foreign companies came i dreamed of owning a can cut in factory. but we have less garbage now. some businesses who come here make fun of me. figure out garbage boy i'm not bad like people think. i'm a good person. it's just the people don't see me. but i feel that with time people like me. that i feel people will start to appreciate us.

quiet now but according to forecast it should pick up once we get closer to filling up with a lack of wind continue to cause peter problems so much so he fell into the water as there wasn't enough wind to keep his kind airborne however he was soon back on his board as a finished coastline which was also his finishing line through ever close this hole challenger is a completely new experience for the twenty four year old russian he may be a world champion kite surfer but normally he's used to performing tricks over a short period of time in good conditions and not having to surf a distance of around eighty kilometers with the elements against him as you see with the knee and the wind drops so i was barely keeping going in the luckily there was a long way so i go in tight as you. see i mean there's quite a lot of pressure on the feet and the way it was up and down laws i had to go up with a bit so. not surprisingly he was shattered after his endeavors as he had to work doubly hard due to the lack of wind however he can now relax after completing this
