the economy situation so it's a billion and a tell them so go home now we see no four weeks of protests now of demonstrations are sweeping all across america does it look like it's going to continue. not doesn't look like it will absolutely continue and it will not just she knew within new york city this movement is going to. pass the world over this in the next twenty four hours those that have been dreaming media from occupy wall street site called world will be as a norm darkie that within the next twenty four hours more than seventy countries and more than six hundred cities around the world will be joining this movement a movement where the crowd comes together again managing democracy demanding that elected leaders. not be up for the financial elites now my colleague in india pretty streeter just how

today violence is once again flared up. these are the images. from the streets of. corporations to rule the day. now eleven minutes past the hour here in moscow the european central bank says it's done enough to help the e.u. deal with its debt crisis and now it's time for governments to take apart spain becomes the latest credit downgrade a victim with a ratings agency standard and poor's cutting its score by one notch. our reports from brussels. the patience of european central bank does seem to be running out it says that it can't really take the whole itself it really needs the european government to come through and take some action because the latest country problems is its problems with its solidarity a failure of solidarity is not
7:12 am
a downgrade of this great game which is going to make it even hold the growth rate money. that we're expecting more or have the biggest protests so far. it's been just in spain now russia's prime minister has come out and said that europe's governments. problem if they wanted. a crisis is more of a political than a financial issue according to different estimates between one and one and a trillion dollars is needed a number is big but the user you can handle it it's a political issue because in order to counter those resources leaving you in countries must offer a shoulder to those in trouble and that takes political courage so governments in europe are accused of passing the blame no one wants to take responsibility but russia is one of many countries which is concerned by this because of course when the european economies are suffering the rest of the world has a knock on effect portugal is the latest country which announced new austerity
7:13 am
measures that means more taxes potentially education health costing more and we are expecting coordinated action coordinated protests across europe including in lisbon over those also thirty measures over the cults which are thought to be extremely painful for the population now we've also seen the big three shake saying that he does expect those governments to come through with those cuts in order to balance his budget but there is a meeting today and tomorrow of the world's leading finance ministers as they try to tackle this crisis has been in portugal might just be too painful for the people who take these austerity measures my colleague has spoken to . some of those victims of the cross i'm afraid i'm afraid of a future i'm afraid that. things are going to be like they are in greece right now people and. they're not going to be able. to have. a piece of the simpler
7:14 am
solution is an active member of the portuguese indignados delish poor movement its participants believe the government is hell bent on pleasing the rich and powerful and ignores the needs of the people there can truly help them realize that we are not. we are not going to be bad for. you know it's happening and it's happening everywhere and spraying here in greece in the worst three different employment in thirty years and over twelve percent rise in taxes and fall in wages by the reality of portugal's a bleak present situation things are so bad people are no making comparisons with cataclysmic periods in their history and looking to them for inspiration leads the century portugal was in a situation similar to its present state because it was lagging the capital was all but destroyed by an earthquake but one that marquee people bought the mr perfect and that's his statue right there that is to pull the country out of the crisis
7:15 am
three hundred years on however if you believe everybody will be able to perform a similar monumental task the portuguese indignados say the solution is to create more jobs and cuts are necessary expenditure but the government was forced into seventy eight billion euro bailout earlier this year following in the footsteps of greece and ireland to pay it back toughest areas because have been introduced which will see longer working hours or less holidays and even an end to the christmas bonuses which most workers enjoyed at the age when you are meant to start your life to you know have your own space your own you know. tough kids you know. if you can you can't do it. you can't do it because you can't afford to do it and howard noxious is that you know that's the financial system and the political system that is intertwined with the financial system is going that is completely
7:16 am
twisted conditions that race this this to me. personally the biggest thing and as the crisis grows so too do the reins of the outraised members of the indignados people who will unite forget. the nationalists lose track their money. and build another europe not because it's not democratic national governments that are not democratic. but rather she told the ground but the problem is the system not surprisingly. the call for global direction or looked over the fifteenth from the occupy wall street movement to new york is expected to give a loud response in portugal but for many of those who will fill the streets here it's not so much about evolution as it is about turning it into simple fight for survival and it goes courting. sixteen minutes past the hour here in
