achieved victory. >> joining us now is a senior researcher on thailand with human rights watch. in short, what do the protesters want? well, it is now clear that both sides are not backing down. the government made it clear they would not reside, there was no resolution of the parliament. the protestor made it clear they would not expect an offer from the government, including any negotiation or end of hostilities. tonight the situation will be tense, the government announced a plan to disperse the men at the finance industry. it is unclear when that will
happen. police are rushing to both areas to protect the leaders. >> you said tonight the situation would be tense. the protests were peaceful until now. any sign as to what caused the latest wave of violence? >> well, this is starting from very confrontational history. given over the past week by protest leaders, that's sec for number one. number two is the confrontation is different from previous, that there is no communication between protestor and government or the law enforcement authorities at all. both side are operating on suspicion. they are operating on fear that there'll be taken by surprise. making the situation very volatile.
and the fact that led to casualties is that there is now an unknown arm group operating in the outskirts of bangkok attacking protesters. we have confrontation between the government and other protesters. unknown groups are attacking with guns and grenades. making the situation fragile. the police are unable to control anything. >> that is important what you mentioned. you said now there's this third almost rogue group of unknown armed men and women. what do we know about that. have they made it clear what they are fighting for? >> can you say it again, you are breaking up. >> yes, sir. you said there was a third element. there's a third unknown armed
group that is now in the mix. that is important. do we know what they are fighting for at least? >> well, this armed group seemed to be operating in tandem with pro government red shirts. it's almost repeating what happened in 2010, that the red shirt, which support the previous demonstration are busy, had support from armed group known as the men in black militants. this time around if the government of yingluck shinawatra is facing strong opposition from protest group led by the democrat party, and now this militant element showing up again to support the government, to support the red shirt. so we are now facing this kind of multi lair of conflict. all of them believing in the use
of violence. all of them believing that they can walk away with the crimes and enjoy impunity. this makes the situation dangerous. last night no one would dare to go to the street where armed group happened. it's unclear what the situation is. >> a multi player conflict valving an unnamed group. >> thank you. a research are on thailand with the human watch group, joining us from bangkok. >> in a few short hours of the obama administration is set to give a report on films to the troubled heath care website. reporters will be briefed at 9am eastern. they'll talk about the result of a 5-week examination of the website, trying to make it user friendly and bug free.

a claim denied by officials. >> translation: the dominican authorities have not launched a claim of defort passion. if a foreigner got -- deportation. >> if a foreigner gets in illegally, we will deport them. many of these people work in a bakery. 1km from a border. this woman was born in the dominican republic. her father is dominican, her mother haitian. she doesn't have citizenship and is at risk of being deported to haiti, a country she knows nothing. >> all of my life is here. saying i'm from there - it would be like a different world. >> the two countries on either side of the border have a volatile history.
when violence broke out the level of animosity between dominicans and hatians went to a new level. according to dominicans in this remote area, two haitian men robbed and murdered a dominican couple and disappeared. >> in retallation, two haitian men were killed. 600 hatians were escorted across the border. the attacks escalated and their relationship could deteriorate further. >> translation: my language is from here. my knowledge, my style, culture, all of it. on the other side, without imposing anybody, what will i do, who will i be. >> an uneasy search for identity on both sides of the border.

several family members killed. this is because instead of helping us the army is taking away our weapons so the knights templar can kill us. >> hundreds of men are ignoring the government's demand to lay down their guns and instead are threatening to wipe out the ruthless cartel themselves. most of these men took up arms over seven moths -- months ago. they said they did it to protect their families. >> the cartel is fighting back. these days gun battles between the self-appointed and community police and drug gangs are almost a daily occurrence. this fire fight filmed exclusively by the mexican network a graphic sign that lawless innocence was spreading.
every day there are new reports that more and more are taking the law into their own hands, rather than waiting for the government. another sign that the crisis is worse nipping are the hundreds of families that fled their homes. taking reference so either the state or community police can restore the peace. this mayor trying to comfort those taking shelter admits he has more faith than the self-defence groups. >> the government should protect the people. but if you ask me as a citizens, i say i support the uprisages, because i can no longer tolerate the criminals. with popular support growing daily for men like jose, it's unlikely the defense groups will back down.
al jazeera did make several attempts to speak to various officials within the mexican government. none responded to our request. thousands of the anti government protesters are taking to the streets in ukraine. they are angered by the president's refusal to sign a pact and the european union. >> i'm joined by david for more on the protests. who are the protesters. >> morgan, they have been called in by the opposition who are united against president viktor yanukovych's decision to turn away from the european union, it's the biggest protest we have seen in a week-long of rallies here in key eve. now, they are not only behind nee in st. michael's square where they were taken haven and sanctuary when they were evicted
from another square, but they are all over the city. the main rallying point is in a park in central key eve. now they are moving into these streets and towards independence square, where a court order has been taken out presenting them from going there or going whack to independent square. it's a fluid situation. the organizers are intent on regaining that ground. and maintaining the vigil there once again. because of the brutal tactics used by the riot police, i have noticed amongst the crowd several young men wearing crash helmets, crowbars and baseball bats. looks like we are heading towards a confrontation on the streets. >> thank you for joining us. >> on this world aids day 25 years later, united in the fight against h.i.v., while giving a lesson on how to live with the disease.

creddicre creddize credit union dolled out loans that banks would balk out. >> an investor was given $3 million. that goes against the grain of the credit union. >> normal credit unions lend a few thousand at a time. this did exactly what caused the banking system to fall over. >> it's a labor party to what wept wrong with the banks. bad loans, and in the same way that the banks had to bell bailed out, the taxpayer is having to find $70 million. the difference is this. while the institutional investor in the banks never loft money. the institutional investors were
the people of the town. the >> the credit union system relies on people wanting to save. the fear is new bridge went big, because it couldn't make the credit union model work. >> there's 100,000 people in arrears on the mort ims. unemployment of close to 13%, it's not possible that credit unions could be imyun. >> new brim is one of 12 not to be long to the association. the move is solid and came through. better than other financial institutions. with the exception of newbridge, it's the only institution standing on its own two feet. >> ireland has two banks left. if the credit union system were

he said they'll condition their fight, in his words, until the prime minister yingluck shinawatra resigns and they have a change of go. . the prime minister says she will stay in the job, she's the democratically elected leader. >> she said she'll stay put. reception is harder to change than reality. if the thai people think she's a puppet of her brother is there a limb mate way she can say in power once things settle down? >> it's an interesting question. part of what they are doing there in bangkok. they are trying to make that visible to the world outside. but it needs to be remembered that the rooling party have the majority of favour in the county. she dissolved parliament, if she
did that, they'd need to have elections, the same party would win. she is large protests on the streets of bangkok, a lot of people support the cause. they don't represent the majority of the country, even though there's a perception, it continues through the country when there's tens of thousands on the streets of bangkok, simply because the ruling party, her party has the majority of the people in this country. >> scott, thank you for joining us this morning. >> millions of children in america struggle with childhood obesity. researchers show it leads to heart disease, diabetes and cancer. i found one cool doctor who is teaching kids in new york how to keep their calories down and keeping it funky fresh. >> he's known as a hip-hop doc. he's teaching kids to eat
