wells wired news live from moscow this is r t with me rory sushi welcome to the program. now hundreds of thousands of people are set to march in spain to protest against the government's cuts and reforms the demonstrations have been called by the country's top labor union and social groups on sunday thousands of health care workers marched across madrid to make their feelings clear about plans to privatized hospitals the government insists it's all part of the austerity measures needed to pick the country up from its deep recession the protests come as a unique is agreed on closer integration in brussels french president francois hollande said there's no doubt about the integrity of the eurozone which will no longer be taken by surprise but investment advisor patrick young believes the euro's continued existence is a facade or spain is simply run out of cash. the problem is that the spanish
government doesn't have any money i'm told the problem the difficulty with the spanish government is that it hasn't actually wanted to to bite the bullet all over the multiple areas in which it's been deficient for many many years admitting one could say that was the previous government run rather than the current government however the truth is there is no money to pay all of these nurses and doctors there is no money for this loutish government infrastructure it has to be privatized sold off and there have to be stoppage culp's because truly spain has spent the last decade living on the never never it was built on the back of a huge property bubble the bubble was unsustainable nobody managed to manage that unfortunately while we can obviously say tragedy for the poor independent healthcare professionals there's just no way to manage to find the money to aid them in modern spain the biggest shock of the whole year hasn't doggedly been the fact that the euro is held together the european union is putting on
a brave face it throwing money around the place it's trying all manner of things to hold together cracking and creaking for. and ultimately you know they might just manage to carry it off but ultimately i think the smart money is waiting in the wings and it's looking at the whole idea that we are going to see a euro break down even if it's not going to be as instantaneous as some of us might have predicted. now opposition groups in egypt of called on their supporters to stage a nationwide protests to challenge the outcome of the first round of the referendum on the new islamist about the constitution and they claim the vote was maad by widespread violations with rights groups calling for a rerun of saturday's poll early results suggest fifty six percent of egyptians approve of the draft constitution which is supported by president morsi and the muslim brotherhood but the opposition says the document is poorly drafted and turns the constitution into an islamist code but the biggest opposition alliance the national salvation front has called on people to take to the streets to defend
their freedoms ahead of the referendums second stage at this saturday and the group's spokesman said the wood is hoping the opposition's complaints won't remain unheard of right now we want the authorities the election commission to look into the violations and to decide by itself whether this is big enough in order to repeat the first round and in case we are going to go to the second round we want to make sure that violations are not going to be repeated particularly in terms of the outcome to this is a privilege and there were not enough judges yesterday to look into the or to supervise the vote we also complained about preventing our observers the preservers of human rights groups from attending the counting process according to a decision by the judges we want to attend and be present during the counting and we also complaining about the fact that was the brotherhood members were continuing their propaganda inside the polling stations until the last minute trying to influence voters and tried to convince them to vote yes for the constitution claiming that voting no would that mean that you are an infidel or that you are
again is this then so we are still holding a lot of hope though that president morsi will listen to the voice of wisdom and to . that this is an institution that's dividing the country even if we take the results that are being circulated right now it's not enough definitely in a country after the revolution to have a constitution that's approved by a fifty something else. now the arab spring that shook egypt and other countries in the region was spotted two years ago by the self immolation of a protester in tunisia that has since claimed tens of thousands of lives and brought down several regimes and is still ongoing in certain countries but as artie's arena reports many of those who helped to usher in the changes in two thousand and ten say they are still no better off. it began here in tunisia two years ago when a poverty stricken fruit vendor set himself on fire in an act of desperation so i'm saying he was a hero others say he was a drunkard with a history of psychological problems whatever more hala was this is real motivation
was his act of self immolation sort of a string of events which became known as the arab spring decades old regimes were toppled what came to replace them is hardly what most of the people in these countries had in mind when they were doing the revolutions they wanted freedom of speech and free elections bred on their tables and jobs what they got seems to be a very different result situation as war strike on comparison to. comparison to the years before. the revolution personally i don't feel safe. when we see. all the violence of probably. our of salafist. if one policy are backed by by some nationalist people. there are less freedoms right now when it comes to and there were freedoms there
are attacks on individual freedoms every day i received so many messages from girls saying but they were. straight even by police men. who didn't tolerate their or their way off dressing this seems to be a common pattern in the countries that i showed the so-called arab spring just two years ago hopes of transition from authoritarian regimes to new democratic forms of government seem to have altered rising islamism economies in shambles and increasing discontent the pattern is the same in tunisia and egypt where people are pouring out on the streets again with a renewed. sest the only months ago they were rallying in support of the muslim brotherhood and the freedom and justice party during the elections i think a lot of people did vote for the muslim brotherhood in egypt because they wanted economic changes not just getting rid of mubarak and having morsi and morsi no he's
obviously you know right different political figure to mubarak in terms of his ideology has carried on much the same policies in terms of economic policy in libya the uprising took a bloody turn moammar gadhafi could rule the country for over forty years was deposed and killed in two thousand and eleven and he merely being the government has been struggling to control parts of the country going as far as besieging the entire town of bani walid for allegedly providing shelter to diehard khadafi supporters the are using heavy machinery to demolish the demolished houses that can't be using now. guys again it's just a feeling people children and now really sick reaming we would die humanity of the one of the two please help us save our family. i got this time to make libya now the quantum the place where no one can stop them and they have unlimited money
and we're going to the western leaders were quick to praise changes across the middle east they said it was the beginning of a new democratic era for the region but the model of democracy they may have had in mind doesn't seem to be the right fit i think it has to be a different type of a democratic system. the democracy that the u.s. would like to impose upon egypt tunisia and morocco and the other countries throughout the region and even libya where what was waged last year to topple the gadhafi government is not suitable to the people inside of that region in tunisia in and out of school or to. find out cranes. position says the condemning is experiencing its worst crisis in recent times as the authorities once again use tear gas on another peaceful rally during a national holiday coming up shortly here and take a look at why the gulf states government has maintained its violent stance despite
calls for change and pressure from western nations. and the u.k.'s plans to go green it could prove too costly for its people while the moves also splitting views in parliament all of this on more after a quick break. well with. science technology innovation all the latest developments from around russia we've got the future covered. download the official ati up locations to choose your language stream quality and enjoy your favorites. t.v. is now required to watch on t.v. all you need is your mobile device to watch on scene at any time and i didn't.

marking martyrs day in an annual commemoration of two protestors who were killed back in one thousand nine hundred ninety four by the opposition groups say the gulf nation suffering is now right now excuse me suffering the worst political crisis in modern history and the threatening yet more protests and bahraini authorities banned all public gatherings a few months ago in an attempt to stem almost two years of unrest during that time eighty people have been killed and thousands of arrested a leading human rights defender about job did have his prison sentence reduced last week but this wasn't quite enough to come after us who were calling for his immediate release hussein a dollar from americans for democracy and human rights in bahrain believes the situation will not change as long as the government remains supported by western powers. whenever they come under pressure from western allies like united states or u.k. they always talk the good talk but they never. do the walk and other wards it is
simply they came under tremendous pressure from the united states to open up their political systems to start to see it as their lock to reform the political situation however you know such see this is there has been taken for example we still see attacks on peaceful course we still see political prisoners released torture still taken place human rights violations are placed on daily basis the human rights issue as they go into behaving not allowing or just in the first place first the law of the king came up with a law that basically banned any kind of peaceful protests there to itself. this is a violation of international law so when people challenge the law that's not illegal there is a clear double here double standard when it comes to u.s. foreign policy in the region especially rain and syria where the rise violations are committed and behind on daily basis over the week we hear no condemn
nation from the united states and we would like to see a larger scale of. diplomatic pressure and international pressure on the bahraini regime. so right now turning quarter past the hour here in the russian capital environmentally friendly energy it looks like a reasonable solution where natural resources are running low and exploiting them becomes more dangerous and the u.k. wants fifteen percent of the country's energy needs to be covered by renewable sources by twenty twenty that could prove to be too costly for the public as artie's laura smith investigates. wind turbines turn in the breeze they might not generate much power but they're certainly putting people in a spin it's a route that dividing david cameron's coalition government to get his energy minister says he's against wind farms and enough is enough while his energy secretary says he's got no hope for them to speak for the government the energy
secretary or the energy minister or the prime minister but in this case he doesn't seem quite sure there's been no change to alter newel energy but in the same breath he hinted the number of wind farms could be reviewed after current targets are fulfilled this would anger the liberals but greatly pleased those who say wind farms are an expensive waste of time such as landowner philip merrick's who lives near little cheney caught wind farm the locals were united against it every single democratically local organization that's the councils were against it but of course the developers very careful they dished out a lot of money to locals and of course that bore a bit of support amazingly wind farms have got a p.r. . campaign behind them but people do sing seem to think that they're helpful to the environment which of course they're not this one's been open since two thousand and
eight and during that time output has improved but it's coming from a pretty no base that only twenty one and a half percent capacity in its first year to just twenty six percent last year. there are twenty six wind turbines behind me each one of which costs in the region of two million pounds to erect according to locals we've come on a good day all the wind turbines are currently working usually they say that's not the case and a lot of the time they're just standing there and that's the rub people need electricity twenty four seven not just when the wind is blowing so wind power still needs supplementing by fossil fueled power stations but despite its shortcomings the taxpayer folks out fifty percent of its running costs are subsidies the right way to encourage an instrument or are actually what you're doing and i think what we're doing is we're rewarding in adequate technologies now and indeed we're fossilize in the more infantilizing them we're actually preventing growth what we
really need to save these people yes well if you can improve and you can show that you've got a place you're welcome at the moment we're covering them with gold when in fact they're quite inadequate locals are quick to point out that less than eight kilometers away is a nuclear power station supported by the community as a reliable source of power and local employer unlike the wind farm which is controlled from germany but if david cameron refuses to be blown off course the government will stick to its plans and more than double the amount of on shore wind powered by two thousand and twenty to meet european targets nor smith r.t. can't. needs action because it could soon fall into fuel poverty that's according to a brand new report predicting that fountains of people mainly pensioners in the disabled may not be able to afford to keep themselves warm by two thousand and sixteen that story in full at r.t.

oh i just in time now you are for the world out there let's get some other global news for you brief now starting with seventeen people confirmed dead after a car bomb explosion at a town market in northwest pakistan and the blast was near the office of a government official of the alleged target of the attack that's happening in a region close to the border with afghanistan there is long been plagued by fierce fighting between the military and taliban insurgents with civilians often being caught in the crossfire. iraq is greeted by a wave of explosions and attacks three gunmen raided a police checkpoint need to create killing five policemen and wounding five others
roadside bomb in a village north of baghdad has claimed the lives of three soldiers i want a car bomb north of most school and another similar blast nearby at a shia place of worship killed twelve the latest violence comes as iraq is still reeling from multiple explosions across quite a cook on sunday which also targeted shiites those attacks killed five and wounded fourteen it all comes nearly a year after u.s. forces withdrew from the country. in japan the right leaning and liberal democrats have won over a sounding parliamentary election victory putting former prime minister shinzo back in office he spoke of a huge task ahead promising tokyo will not concede china one millimeter of japan's islands and vowed not to give up in the dispute between them was last prime minister for a short time between two thousand and six and two thousand and seven and this time he won in a landslide with almost three hundred seats. president obama has said he'll do
everything in his power to prevent more mass shootings as the first funerals for the victims of the newtown school tragedy have been held twenty children aged six to seven and six adults were shot dead on friday when adam lanza went on a rampage with an assault rifle the twenty year old had killed his mother prior to carrying out the massacre he later turned the gun on himself and the tragedy has sparked calls for tighter gun control laws including a ban on military grade assault weapons. now reports of immersion huge amounts of gold are being flown out from afghanistan according to a part of board staff motivates most of it is a heading towards dubai which has long been considered a haven for laundered money and a political analyst and former afghan m.p. old sultanzoy says this could be the latest incarnation of a trafficking racket carried out with the connivance of the afghan government. nationally when you're trying to stem
a one thing from flowing away there will be other ways of doing it and that's really gold as is being used not only in lieu of dollars leaving afghanistan but also it's a very very interesting change for money launderers for drug smugglers and also there's. another angle to this which would be the dumping of gold by. regional players and even beyond the region because around afghanistan there are some central asian countries and of course russia up to russia all the good producers of gold and the drug. money that was coming into afghanistan or other bartering was taking place gold is taking a new shape in it and it is easier to carry and also the central bank of afghanistan is totally oblivious to these things and they always act after the fact the same way that they acted about after the failure of the afghan one of the afghan banks they are also always behind the curve. now bashar al assad's vice
president says neither see me neither side can win the syrian conflict. he called for the creation of a national unity government to settle the ongoing crisis and some opposition fighters have said they are open to seeing him lead an interim cabinet a neighboring turkey that strongly supports the rebels also considers him a credible candidate to replace assad this as damascus is on the defensive as al qaeda linked militants claim to have captured another loyalist base russia and china a leading calls against foreign action in syria and what a political settlement instead. we believe that the matter of the sea wrap should be decided by this even people not by the outside force. the outside forces say that i don't like this guy i want to go to for the chinese these if not. because the. you don't lack the leader of these.
why should you decide who should stay or should go so we have a problem with these that comes statement. and you can see the full interview with the member of china's foreign policy advisory committee at sixteen six forty five pm g.m.t. up next though in just a few minutes here on r.t. we are focusing on the extremist movement in europe of course amid the huge inflow of immigrants that this is on same.
