central government parties and a farmer has the story. there's a wind of separatism blowing through europe at the moment and it's reached the northeastern shores of spain catalonia is the latest region to officially aspirate independence is something people here have long felt in their hearts but now they're feeling it in their pockets. i think it's a good idea to be in the band them from. a country. which is in a really really bad situation it's a bargain for. it's a bargain for the good of the cats and i'm flags can be seen hanging from balconies throughout barcelona reflecting a growing desire for home rule under a drive to break away from the central government in madrid this weekend's local election is being fought on that issue alone catalan president for mass has made it
8:06 pm
the centerpiece of his campaign this convergence union party trying to hold an independent referendum if they win and say free catalonia would be a cure all for the region's economic problems that have seen unemployment top twenty five percent the economic context in europe and in the south of europe has been a catalyzer of the is. the movement we can see in the sense that people in total believe that with our own resources human capital economic resources we could be better off if not being in the spanish estate and this is a reality that a lot of economic research has show many catalans find it a persuasive argument it's one of spain's wealthiest regions producing a fifth of the country's economic output but it pays around sixteen billion euros a year more in taxes than it gets back from madrid which has in turn insisted public services into austerity cuts. this is not fair i mean we are the ones who're
8:07 pm
. doing our best in mccormick reasons we cannot afford the weight of this measure and the central government for us is the one who is spending the most and not in the best way last september barcelona witnessed one of the largest separatist rallies here since the nineteen seventies over one and a half million catalans took to the streets to call for independence but the path to becoming a new european state is far from smooth the proposed referendum is against the spanish constitution what's more withdrawing from spain could also force this region to draw back to the european union those against separatism believe it could do more harm than good. separatism for going alone or would be an economic disaster multi-national companies located in barcelona for access to the spanish work it and being in the e.u. that will be lost which more even of separatism does not happen just talking about

8:09 pm
masses party told spanish catalan use you know go serve coffees in england and learn english because there's no work for you here now that generates a lot of rejection and we're probably going to see some manifestation of that in the electorial result it's definitely true that the lumia does have a higher g.d.p. for instance in the than other regions of spain but they have a lot more debt and they've been in acting austerity they enacted austerity year before the rest of the of the spanish state so there's not a lot of there's nothing really to suggest that it would be that much better to do the mass did say that you know the day after elections there are still going to be you know austerity measures and budget cuts and layoffs and people out in the street and what's been remarkable about this these elections is the degree to which appealing to the nationalist sentiment has completely trumped i guess the discussion in the public sphere about austerity and coming up later this hour no

good turn goes unpunished. norway appears to be suffering for its hospitality as radicalism is fast becoming a popular trend among the countries growing islamic community. and we explain how a scandal involving football hooligans is becoming a springboard for the possible creation of a brand new continental tournament. the sun rises over what seems like enlist forest here in the new directions quite hundred kilometers north of light of all stalk and in much of the world it's disappearing at a catastrophic rate. walkers both the. illegal and those finding ways to outsmart the system for filing down the forests of the region for them profit goes well beyond the future of our planet and the result could be an ecological crisis we are on the hunt for illegal loggers and it's not going to be
8:11 pm
easy the forest is enormous and our chances are slim now for now we can stay in our dreams but as soon as we find solid tracks we'll have to drop our wheels and get out silently in order not to scare the loggers off alexander someone in ca has been a ranger for over twenty five years he can spend weeks at a time tracking a single group of loggers easier to work when snow falls in autumn it's impossible to find human tracks and even transport tracks are hard to see after hours of driving we get sent in the right direction by word of mouth you can see that the ground just soft here which means that they have twelve the tractor trails are very fresh which fact means that we need to be quiet in order to not scare them off as we get closer. this team says they're legal but have no documents now xander can now call the police to take over his work here is done he is
8:12 pm
overwhelmingly outnumbered there are too few rangers working in the promote the region and the w w f says the government isn't doing enough to stop it just. as no one tries to stop them in just five years the force will be gone what will the people who live after. it's a question more and more people are aware of today climate change in the safety of our environment as a whole are being discussed around the world and perhaps it's those small steps that might be a start to people living in harmony with nature. hidden sorrow. and hope for escape. barely surviving longing for a godsend. they live in

a search for gold. why doesn't it bring them wealth. live from moscow this is r t welcome back tolerant towards immigrants is something norway adopted centuries ago tens of thousands of people displaced by wars in their countries have found their way to the welcoming the land of the vikings however some modern migrants are being accused of taking their new home for granted if
8:14 pm
national reports. tolerance is no way as well known trademark maybe even to well known thirteen percent of the country's five million population in remembrance but it seems it may be suffering from its own hospitality rather than district near term problems like every in the region but sometimes people call these optimistic see it started as if it's even going to mean a population for years has been home to a large number of outsiders who've been living in peace and many of these locals treated respectfully so decided it's not enough a while ago the radical islamic group demanded to make its independence from the city and the sharia law territory to feel literally. in a letter sent to some of the country's politicians and journalists and known extremists have threatened to carry out and nine eleven in no way if their demands are not met. that it's really something really i think it's more of the. stuff
8:15 pm
of really to be taken serious but this is not the first death threat coming from noways muslim community in this we do know a pakistani born in mom preaches those not praying should be brought to prison those not fasting during ramadan decapitated is it possible to kill him in the river yeah. all weapon is made to kill we hear concerns over how some immigrants bring part of their cultures to no way from the head of the country's hunting union. our or something courses there were pending for muslims who seem to have more interest in. nature and helping attending courses is one of the two legal ways in no way to get a personal weapons license if you don't respect religion rules you want to. then you can go back to your country opposition party member. himself came to no

way as a political refugee in the late eighty's he says the ruling labor party is importing voters immigrants are indeed among the parties strongest supporters but the price is high how can you integrate minority when the minority is actually the majority in the society who is going to learn from who is well you are. such rhetoric is too familiar to every norwegian a homegrown terrorist killed seventy seven here last summer protesting against the takeover of muslim immigrants or someone to was one of those on that island last july his comrades and friends were killed right in front of his very eyes he says he survived to fight for what brave it tried to destroy the most important lesson is that we've never paid. grounded values for a ground. it's a fight we never win the fight for democracy or. for justice it's something that we
8:17 pm
constantly need to focus on despite concern for the threat to kill made by some immigrants may be a real noways unlikely to give up its tolerant small toe in fact it's quite the opposite for many the only response to brave immigrants motivated massacre is seen immigrants embraced more than ever before marie for national r t no way. a local council in britain has removed three children from their foster family because of the parents' political views social workers accused the couple of belonging to a racist political organization due to their support of the u.k. independence party earlier my colleague bill dodd spoke to paul nuttall an m.e.p. from ukip who described the decision outrageous it's an absolute disgrace and i think it's a case of desperation really from the labor party we have a by election rather than exactly in the same area where this terrible incident has taken place and the council have gone ahead and persecuted this family because they
8:18 pm
are members of ukip i'm not too sure whether this is a coincidence or not now your party is though critical of multiculturalism and political correctness is this incident an indication that perhaps you're being misunderstood in your failing to communicate your policies. absolutely not i think our policies are quite clear i think the fact that we're now around ten to twelve percent in the opinion polls goes ahead and shows that and the fact is that at miliband the leader of the labor party has come out and said there needs to be an investigation into this that michael gove the conservative education secretary has come out and said that this is a disgrace so we're getting backing not just from the people because the public is on the whole behind us on this they think it's a disgrace and it would also getting them back into the political parties as well so you agree with the whole idea that no matter what political persuasion couples are they should be able to adopt children. or look this corporal have been foster parents for the past seven years they have been given children homes and doing a good job what happens here is is
8:19 pm
a case of persecution i think it's absolutely wrong the people who will suffer as a result will be the children because what will happen to these children now look up but it isn't isn't bringing children up in a political environment of consideration for example would you be happy to see members of the british nationalist party adopting or fostering children for a political party accused of racism. well look i think each case needs to be taken on a sole basis and we are not a racist party it's quite clear that's written into our constitution we actually van members who have been members of the british national party in the past we are completely in all three answered races could ukip see this is a political advantage and bring to the attention the fact that the adoption fostering laws in the u.k. really do need a shake up understand that seven out of eight parents are rejected the. possibility to foster or adopt it is that an area perhaps you could now pursue. well i think
8:20 pm
it's something that certainly needs to be looked at i mean there are seventy thousand children in care in this country which quite frankly is obscene that is too many and what we need to be doing is getting these children out of jail and into good homes because you know the statistics don't rely on those children in care are more likely to grow up in prison and not to well at school etc the best place for children in care to be is with loving families and that's why this whole thing is obscene. now for some more stories making headlines around the world for you this hour. around ten thousand people have clashed with police in thailand during anti-government protests and officers used tear gas to disperse the crowd as they tried to break through barricades with demonstrators accusing the prime minister of corruption and holding an end time on a key stance authorities say the army could be called in if the situation gets out of control. the remains of the late palestinian leader yasser arafat will be examined on tuesday his sudden death in two thousand and four led some palestinians

to claim he was poisoned by israel which the country strongly denies the investigation into his death was renewed earlier this year after traces of polonium were found in arafat's personal items the samples will be examined by experts from russia switzerland and france. at least four people have been killed and ten wounded in a blast during the muslim holy day of shura in yemen an unknown man fired a rocket propelled grenade at a group of shia worshipers observing the festival authorities suspect a sunni extremists linked to al qaeda are behind the attack. rebels in the democratic republic of congo have continued of their offensive that is despite calls from african leaders to end the hostilities and un that now puts the number of displaced persons at one hundred forty thousand after militants seized the city of goma this has prompted fears of an all out humanitarian crisis as numerous armed groups continue the two decade long fight for the mineral rich country. the
