4:07 am
a sigh of relief with a new deal reached to help debt ridden greece but it doesn't mean the crisis is over portugal reportedly wants to renegotiate the terms of the bailout it got earlier this year and it's also called on non european countries to help save the eurozone as artie's are really to lucia reports painful austerity cuts have hit portugal hard. new jobs no money no chance for the future these messages have been brought by teachers strike unfortunately big. stability will be in the school. even if they are working for ten fifteen twenty years they are always earning the same in don't have a place in school a stable place and once it's a political choice of financial cuts in education in health and social security
4:08 am
that's a political choice and we think it's it's wrong. but that's in the area closest particles used to be sliding deeper and deeper into the depths of economic out there what started off as a purely financial crisis is now turning into malevolent force which threatens to rock the portuguese their basic human rights earlier this year portugal got an emergency bailout from the e.u. to deal with her genscher in debt the third country to do so after greece and ireland but for some the seventy eight billion euro price tag is too high to pay for the hysteria he cuts it goes well beyond the classroom and strikes at some force against society's fundamental principles like access to justice. the government isn't paying lawyers who provide free public services so there are some he's been doing it for years for free. courts cannot be reduced to canonical entities to solve problems of large corporations they must play the role of providing legal services to citizens and promoting social peace. and this is
4:09 am
cutting corners in education and the legal system is not enough the government spencers are hitting the portuguese where it hurts the most in their health care the government now what is your capacity. on here going to be thousands so that is the real the government most you know as to may. yet there will be a lot of people a lot more because we are all big at the same time we pick up and even. we'll reduce it. and it's more pain no gain these territories failing to stop portugal's economy plummeting with the poor in the front line the prime minister has said that he wants to keep the lower income families away from the cuts not really sure that's possible portugal now has a really big budget problem portugal needs money i mean now so they are going to have to act like i'm serious this last tax is hyped but portugal's still on course
4:10 am
to have a worse there for a show then greece that's startling enough but for the people trying to survive there is to me the economy disaster is already here it involves co r t has been hearing russian billionaires are monitoring overture and boris berezovsky are taking their battle to a u.k. court there is asking claims are them over to rob him of billions of dollars something the chelsea football club owner denies he's expected to speak at a high court hearing monday artie's i have a better reports on what promises to be the most expensively lawsuit in history. this will be the first time remove it so mr a is the body guards are calling him opens his mouth in this hearing up until now he's get to resolute silence in stark contrast to his rival mr b. whose appearance in the witness box of being loud brash and passionate after all there's a lot at stake here he's suing me say for three point five billion pounds for
4:11 am
breach of trust and breach of contract he says mr a intimidated him bullied him into selling his shares in sydney oil company for a fraction of the true value of hearings trying to establish the finer details of those deals that went on but it appears none of that was actually put into writing after all it was ninety's russia it's not so much what's inside the court it's caught the attention here is the extravagant operators around these two men they show up because in so many my barks and sadie's they're flanked by vast entourage is at least fifteen people each inside the court room which is massive it's divided into two warring factions each man is represented by three rows of lawyers legal aides translators bodyguards each behind a computer screen outside the court room a free corner is a big burly man with dark glasses an ear piece these are two the world's richest men although the rumor is that. sports is dwindling but to give you an idea of just

4:13 am
is part of a pattern of practice within the israeli system and it's something that's very disturbing because when the army does not obey orders by the supreme court the supreme court is actually more reluctant to issue those orders because no court wants to issue orders that are going to be ignored and then of course you have a serious threat to the rule of law because in a democratic system the army is of course supposed to listen to what the system tells them to do. and if you're looking for more in-depth stories and exclusive footage our teams got you covered here's a taste of what's online right now at r.t. dot com the radioactive emissions from fukushima crippled nuclear plant maybe five times greater of authorities claim find out. why the evacuation zone could stay uninhabited for decades. in the weeks after the failure of its predecessor the russian progress space ship successfully takes off for the i.r.s. as check out the footage on our team dot com and.
