rage on the streets of greece as parliament votes for higher taxes and yet more job cuts claiming it's the only way to pull the country out of its financial quagmire. war strikes hit another part of the u.k. braces itself for more than half a million teachers and civil servants voicing their anger against the government's massive cutbacks. plus a farewell to arms in a cup whether the new head of the pentagon will end the wars that flourished for the outgoing secretary of defense robert gates. for costing live from the russian capital twenty four seven this is out. greece has erupted into more civil unrest with thousands of angry protesters flooding the streets. that's after parliament gave the green light to tough new cuts in order to
12:03 am
secure a further financial lifeline from the e.u. european officials welcomed the move but greeks could not have been less happy with the pending austerity as they gathered in the center of athens on the second day of the general strike protesters threw stones at police smashed windows and set fire to property police responded with tear gas and stun grenades the clashes continued overnight dozens of police and protesters were injured many demonstrators were detained greeks now face twenty eight billion euro worth of cuts and tax rises precondition to a second bailout being released without the money greece would default on its loans within weeks. generous tantrik uncleanness says unless the government addresses the needs of the people it could have a revolution on its hands. i've been to a lot of these protests and a lot of these rallies usually these things down after they get very violent or at least when we head into the night time there's a there's
12:04 am
a brief period where things calm down before they get violent again but we really haven't had that here an interesting thing is some some bikers who actually rode down yesterday from northern greece and more and more people got on the on the bandwagon as they came down they rode by again in front of parliament once again people get very excited when they come through it's very hopeful so it's i think there's a mix there's a mixture of excitement of hope because of the of the response but also there's there's a concern here because there's a lot of violence and and that's a concern not only for the protesters obviously who have been injured but also for the government because with these with this type of violence it becomes a much more difficult for them to pass a starting measures and privatization schemes that are widely unpopular in this country according to scholars here in greece for constitutional scholars and former members of the government they claim that the measure complete unconstitutional the first place because you need one hundred eighty members of parliament to pass a sort of legislation first of all second of all they can pass whatever they like but if the people don't agree to it and that people are not willing to sit down and take it it doesn't really matter what they pass and that's what we're seeing here
12:05 am
right now what you're looking to have happen is you're going to see a fall discovered at some point i've said if things get really of the violence is a really big issue because if if the violence if this results in casualties not just massive injuries then that's going to that's going to lead to a collapse of this government will that mean that the next government will come in and actually do something productive maybe maybe not but then that government have to fall to i don't see the people in this country lying down people are very angry here and they're very upset and they understand what's going on and then are sent these measures are not going to help them and their future there are a lot of educated people this country a lot of capable people people living outside of greece who want to come back to this country because they love it and they're not about the see it get liquidated for some for some morsel of bread and some islands in the g. and that might have natural gas internet that's not going to happen. well greek canned peas are set to hold another vote thursday and decide how the cuts. going to be implemented but as greeks cry out against the tough austerity measures it's the germans who are going to bank the browns and burning them out. says this rescue
12:06 am
package is a result of the e.u.'s favor infection puts credits and risk. we have a bailout probation in the european treaty article one hundred twenty five which expresses says that we have a monterrey union and want a union without collector for financial fifth generation there's only folio he can cater for that for the past fifty like earthquakes the greek crisis and over earthquake it's a governance problem it's generated by these. leases responsibility so as a matter of fact as people believe that the greek crisis might create a contagion to other more developed economies politicians are afraid of people who are afraid to take very very unreasonable decisions of the first decision was to allow police to have a very generous credit last year and the credit to a sovereign country means just as long as the southern country hasn't been hasn't
12:07 am
paid take the credit all people have been creditors will remain at risk so we are in a very very dangerous phase of european monetary policy european institutional policy because we have stayed away straight away from the power of institutional and all of the virtue which is laid down in the treated as overnight in on the ninth and tenth of may on the french influence of the european economic. community and in particular the european monetary union has been redesigned without any vote by populations who have consented to giving up the money amongst those the germans and their will and very bitterly i feel. well that was lawyer marcus kerber arguing the greek bailout is actually outside you do stiction. but it's not only greece that seeing massive civil unrest in the u.k. more than half a million public sector workers are set to protest against government plans to
12:08 am
change their pensions and freeze pay many schools will be closed and transport is likely to be severely affected as workers embark on a one day strike ati's lower emmet listen to the voices of discontent. down tools are with industrial action and also my discontent starts here as the u.k. braces for a wave of strikes not seen the decades this time it's three quarters of a million public sector workers walking out unhappy with the planned reform of their pensions which they say will see them paying a lot more and getting a lot less we don't think that should be a vice to the boats in the functions we think. it's on its people it took about withdrawing from the pensions game because they can't afford to pay the mortgage at the same time as paying for that kind of chance and people are really angry that time and bankers are making record bonuses yeah guy we're being asked to take a pension in our pensions to pay more for our pensions reality is we've got to
12:09 am
fight us we're just using these people do a huge variety of key work from teachers and lecturers to air traffic controllers and coast guards unisons the u.k.'s biggest public sector trade union deputy chief bob avidly says his one point three million members already a prolonged industrial action where almost fourteen we've got thirty million pounds set aside and we've got a strategy work but i must strangers that's not what we want to do we want to talk to the government and negotiate a sensible package nor the ridiculous package they're proposing at the moment that package involves raising the retirement age from sixty to sixty six raising pension contributions by workers and having payouts based on average career earnings rather than final salary the unions admit public support is fundamental to having
12:10 am
a successful strike action the government is very unlikely to change its mind about reform if the public at large doesn't back the unions but that's by no means assured public sector workers do already get very generous pensions and the. cost of those pensions is very much under the carpet and the burden falls on to the next generation that really is absolutely essential that public sector pensions are reformed and even after they are reformed public sector workers will get better pensions and private sector workers the unions want to apply enough pressure to force the government to change its mind and it's no stranger to you it was hell bent on reforming the health service to until it decided to take longer to think about it causing friction in the coalition the government is doing this to reduce the current fifty billion dollar pension bill but it may be cutting off its nose to spite its face the wider issue here according to the u.k. pension fund you can bet that a lot of me public back to work paid no don't think that pensions are what while
12:11 am
they may stop contributing to that if that was a widespread withdrawal pension funds would collapse and that would leave u.k.p. i would be very short of investments just what it means that more than ever begins we'll be addressing that but is the government listening you know we're at it. well the scale of the walkouts in the u.k. hasn't been seen for decades later we hear from a british trade union. who says if the government fails to take notice this time people return to protest and even greater numbers. probably three quarters of a million people from four different unions on strike is something that happens 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 the working people the length and breadth of the u.k.
12:12 am
i'm not just going to let them get away with what they're doing and we believe that pressure ultimately come forced them to change direction saying you won't just when they're having a chat with a few people in a room is one thing saying you want to go when there could be millions of people taking. 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 pro lexically 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 the power of the river walk it strikes actually do. and you can watch the full interview with the british trade union leader marcus what kind in just twenty minutes time here or not he. will say we're coming your way tensions are still high over a long awaited change in egypt's capital and yet again it reaches
12:13 am
a boiling point as thousands of protesters queues the interim government of a lack of action the deaths caused by police during the recent vote. and the history repeating itself we find down to about the hardships of our own nation of people forcibly displaced now struggling to get back to their own and then to count . for almost five years he's been the man at the helm of the u.s. military responsible for the billions of dollars it flowed into the pentagon's coffers from washington well now secretary of defense robert gates is retiring leaving behind three wars and an epigram defense budget over the director of the cia stepping into his shoes critics doubt they will be much change in the pentagon's course chicken reports whoever's in the white house in the pentagon it's business as usual robert gates was secretary of defense to two different presidents obama was elected on a promise to end the wars of his predecessor george w.
12:14 am
bush but america's worst continued and one more was even added to the plate of inconclusive campaigns we wanted ministrations change or change between parties. there really isn't a great deal of change in the pentagon under robert gates his watch america's annual defense spending approach the trillion dollars rising at the pace of about five percent a year but statements from his office were often contradictory fan spending that nearly doubled the base budget over the last decade the gusher has been turned off and will stay off the u.s. is supposed to leave iraq by the end of the year but it seems that there's line is not final he gives all kinds of contradictory statements for instance not long ago he said that anyone who would visors to put u.s. land army in the middle of an asian conflict should have his head examined yet at

remotely piloted vehicles while targeting terrorists the u.s. has been criticized with killing mostly civilians it's also making us less. secure from a policy standpoint we can intervene all over the world it just fuels insurgencies and fuels and i am merican analysts say the deaths of thousands of civilians in afghanistan are part of the reason why the u.s. has failed at curbing insurgency there now the u.s. is preparing to pull out a third of its troops by the end of next year many afghans fear that less troops doesn't mean less bombs dropped on their homes as the u.s. steps up aerial strikes in the region the possibility of waging a war without having to justify the deaths so the american troops has become more palatable for the pentagon the cia has been at the forefront of america's
