good morning, america. good morning, america. this morning, burning down the house. those anti-bank protests that spread like wildfire across america have now gone global turning violent in europe as demonstrators set parts of rome on fire, and here in new york, protests spread deeper into the city with dozens arrested. we are live on both continents as the movement takes on new momentum. rescue from the bottom of the world. the american researcher trapped at the south pole after apparently suffering a stroke is now closer than ever to rescue. a cargo plane is in antarctica waiting for a break in the weather to go get her, but is the crew risking their lives to save hers? search intensifies, the governor of missouri orders the national guard to help look for baby lisa, the 11-month-old who disappeared two weeks ago. and what did police find in an
abandoned house near her home? our legal analyst dan abrams is on the scene. and no bull, one of the most exciting, dangerous and crazy traditions in europe is now here this weekend. the running of the bulls hits america, and we take you inside this stunt. who are the daredevils who do it and, more importantly, why? ♪ regarding your dreams and vision ♪ speaking of somebody who is born to run, ron claiborne. can i just say he's celebrating 25 years here at abc news. >> well, thank you. >> amazing. >> thank you very much. you know, there was a sear the other day. i got to meet mickey mouse. >> unbelievable. >> that is not a person in a mickey mouse suit. that is mickey mouse. >> that's what you get after 25 years. of course, ron started when he was 5 years old at abc news. >> 4. >> 4 years old, okay, but you wouldn't go running with the bulls?
>> i absolutely would. >> you would? >> would you not? >> i would say, yeah, i would not. i would avoid it at all costs. but a lot of people will -- >> the horns? >> exactly. i watch, i don't run with them. we'll get into that later. obviously ron is in for dan who is on assignment. and this could be the final week of the michael jackson death trial. the prosecution is set to wrap up its case against dr. conrad murray. we'll take a look at how they did and what the doctor's defense team will likely show and tell the jury. should be interesting. and an important day, 15 years in the making, the martin luther king jr. memorial will be dedicated today in washington, d.c. the president, president obama, civil rights leaders and members of dr. king's family will be among those on the national mall for the ceremony, but, of course, there is some controversy there, and we will tell you all about that. but we begin with the occupy wall street movement, which has moved far beyond new york city. protesters around the world are showing solidarity with the anti-corporate greed demonstrators here in the u.s. some of those protests have now turned ugly. we have team coverage from new york city and in europe and
we're going to start with abc's lama hasan in london. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning, ron. well, i hope you can hear me. you can see the protesters are behind me having a meeting mobilizing themselves, 500 of them spent the night here, and it was largely a peaceful atmosphere. more of a carnival atmosphere here, but that certainly wasn't the case in other cities across europe. it was a global day as anger and rage against corporate greed and austerity measures. the most violent demonstration was in rome. clashes exploded in the shadows of the colosseum. protesters rampaged through the streets, smashed store windows and set cars on fire. police responded with tear gas and water cannons. as rome burned, the protest spread like wildfire. from berlin, where 4,000 people tried to march through the city's parliamentary building, some scuffles broke out. to frankfurt, where they converged on the european
central bank. to madrid where there was a huge show of force. and in london, the numbers swelled throughout the day. they were pushed away from the london stock exchange by police so they took their voices to st. paul's cathedral. >> let me go! let me go! >> reporter: wikileaks founder julian assange was one of them and addressed the crowd. >> this movement is not about the destruction of law. >> all: this movement is not about the destruction of law. >> it is about the construction of law. >> reporter: as night fell the protestors pitched tents and slept wherever they could under the watchful eye of the police. well, the die-hard protesters are calling this an occupation saying none are going anywhere any time soon vowing to stay through december. bianna? >> all right, lama, and it's not just in europe, it's here in new york, as well. demonstrators have been on the move, making their way to times square where thousands staged a
noisy rally, and the protests have spread to several other cities across the country, as well. abc's t.j. winick is in lower manhattan and has the details. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: bianna, good morning to you. more than 80 protesters arrested here in new york city yesterday. i must tell you i have seen these weekend demonstrations get bigger and bigger over the past month, and yesterday thousands took their message uptown to the landmark known as the crossroads of the world. occupy wall street was transformed into occupy times square late saturday. soon the demonstrations turned disorderly. >> let them go! let them go. >> reporter: this clash with police came just hours after 6,000 occupiers flooded into the iconic intersection. >> all: occupy times square. >> reporter: while most of saturday's crowd was peaceful -- >> ladies and gentlemen, you have to move. let's go. >> reporter: -- officers took no chances as they cleared the streets at nightfall, arresting those who failed to leave.
earlier in the day, 24 demonstrators were handcuffed and removed from a nearby citibank charged with criminal trespassing. from california to florida -- >> all: we are the 99%. >> reporter: -- occupy supporters were out in full force one month after the movement began. back in new york, it was a busy day for demonstrators. first marching from their home base in the financial district to greenwich village. >> us taxpayers are bailing out wall street, the banks and corporations, but then that money isn't going back to the people. >> reporter: the protesters portrayed wealthy wall street bankers as pigs and sharks. it was an act some in the park just weren't buying. >> it's fabricated. it's not an authentic movement. >> reporter: now, sunday has traditionally been a day of rest for the protesters here in new york, but tonight here at 7:00
p.m. they will be holding what they call their general assembly meeting right here at zucotti park. ron. >> all right, thanks, t.j. t.j. winick reporting there. >> turning to politics and your voice and your vote just a day after rick perry laid out his jobs plan, some critics are questioning whether he can relate to the struggles of the average american, this after a comment that his wife made. governor perry is not the only one with a common touch problem. abc's david kerley has the story on that from washington. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, ron. i the top issue for all the candidate, jobs and the economy and the candidates and even their spouses are being judged on how much sympathy they show on that issue. more than 14 million americans looking for work are looking for answers. and anita perry's answer to an unemployed man surprised many when the governor's wife compared the out-of-work man with her son's situation. >> our son hasn't found his job because of the federal regulations washington has put on us. >> reporter: the younger perry told us he was quitting his job
at a big bank to campaign for his father. >> i did that because i think he's got the vision. >> reporter: it all raises a question, can successful politicians relate to the pain of the unemployed? >> some of these republican candidates are not using the common touch right now, and you're seeing the reactions of it from some people that say these guys just don't get it. >> i'm proud to be the son of two tenant farmers. >> reporter: rick perry was raised in a farmhouse that didn't have running water, but he's now worth at least $1 million. >> how are all y'all doing? >> reporter: herman cain raised by working class parents is worth $3 to $6 million and has been blunt about those without a job. >> don't blame wall street. don't blame the big banks. if you don't have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself. >> reporter: front-runner and multimillionaire mitt romney has also had his moments. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> reporter: it's a fine line, telling the story of the american dream when for so many
it's become a nightmare. >> hi, everyone. good to see you. >> reporter: michele bachmann is worth between $1 and $3 million. >> i'm a former federal tax lawyer, and my husband and i also started our own successful company. i get it with job creation, and i think what people see in me is that i'm a real person. >> reporter: and this fine line that i'm talking about is really the fact that a lot of the republican base is big on self-reliance, so how do the candidates appeal to the base and yet still show some empathy to those without a job? bianna. >> all right. david, thank you. >> i want to turn to christiane amanpour, host of "this week," joining us from washington. good morning to you, christiane. >> good morning, bianna. >> christiane, campaign finance reports are out and they're showing a disparity among republican contenders, some like michele bachmann, jon huntsman are bleeding through cash and others are flush wit. obviously talking about mitt romney and perry. perry's raising $17 million. mitt romney, 14 million. so does that 17 million for perry, who is the leader there, does that add new life to his
campaign? so many were saying that he may be on the outs given that he's down in the polls, didn't perform well in the debates? >> well, look, bianna, you're right. he has raised the most, and it is going to give him new life because people have been less than impressed by his campaign and debate performance. but what this does especially in this system, as you know, is buy a lot of time and a lot of power and a lot of television ads. so he will remain a formidable candidate according to all of the experts who say so, and he will be bringing out and he already has very punchy ads against who, mitt romney, who is considered the most important challenger. >> and i want to stick with that. you have david axelrod on the show. he's managing the president's re-election campaign, and both david axelrod and the president came out swinging specifically against mitt romney this week talking about his record and talking about the fact that he wants to raise taxes on the middle class. since they're focusing on him, does that mean that they believe he will be the republican nominee? >> they won't say it as clearly
and categorically as that, but, yes, obviously they believe he's going to be the most formidable candidate and formidable opponent, and that is why they're directing all their ammunition at him, and we will have david axelrod talking about that, and you'll hear him very clearly single out what they consider the ways they're going to run against mitt romney and all that they consider are his weaknesses. i have to add also that while we're talking about campaign finances, president obama has pulled in basically what amounts to double the combined funding and finances that the other republican candidates have pulled in so far, and that makes him a very formidable opponent as well. >> that's right. well, it seems like you're going to have a very interesting show this morning. christiane, we'll have to leave it there. thank you so much. and be sure to join christiane later on abc's "this week" where as we mentioned her guests will include president obama's chief strategist david axelrod. now for a look -- >> let me do this -- >> you want to do this? okay, go ahead. >> now for a look at the other news here is andrea can whog is in for ron claiborne. >> does it feel good, ron? i will try to do you proud in this chair.
>> you scared me. >> all right, well, good morning to you, everyone. and in the news this morning, more american troops than expected may be returning home from iraq by the end of this year. the obama administration is reportedly scaling back a proposal to keep as many as 5,000 troops there to train the iraq military. iraqi lawmakers are refusing to give the troops legal immunity. the white house and the pentagon say they have not reached a final decision. bangkok appears to have been spared from the worst flooding of in thailand in decades. water has started receding in the capital which is shielded by an elaborate system of floodwalls and tums. monsoon rains that began in late july have affected two-thirds of the country. apple is holding a memorial service for founder steve jobs tonight. top silicon valley executives and others close to jobs are expected to attend the invitation-only event on the stanford university's campus. a small private funeral was held for him last week. and the texas rangers are heading back to the world
series. the rangers crushed the detroit tigers, 15-5 last night to win their second straight american league title. texas opens the world series wednesday against st. louis or milwaukee. those teams play game six of their series tonight. and finally, several big names performed at a concert last night celebrating the tenth anniversary of president clinton's foundation. ♪ i want your love and i want your revenge ♪ >> oh, boy. lady gaga had what she called her first marilyn monroe moment with the former president and even turned her hit "bad romance" into -- get this -- "bill romance." other performers included stevie wonder, kenny chesney and usher. and, oh, lady gaga, you know, she tried to get president clinton to play the saxophone. >> he wouldn't play. >> he wouldn't play. and she also tried to get him to go inside of an egg with her, too. as a joke. >> ron would do that. would you? >> sure. >> lady gaga, why not? >> saxophone playing isn't that difficult. >> right. well, you've done it before. >> right.
>> looked like a fun night though. >> time for the weather and scott padgett from our miami affiliate wplg local 10. scott, good morning. >> good morning, bianna, ron. good morning, everyone. and the majority of the country not too bad. let's turn your attention down to the sunshine state, not really seeing a whole lot of sunshine. cloud cover continued to roll its way on through and a lot of rain to the south possibly in the keys. that's where today's not going to be the best. but let's turn our attention to the rainfall totals, possibly 1 to 2 inches and in the center portion a cold front rolls through and some warm we
>> we'll have more coming up. >> we'll have more coming up. bianna? >> scott, thank you. well, the prosecution is expected to rest its case this week in the manslaughter trial of michael jackson's doctor conrad murray. then the defense will begin to tell its side of the story. they're expected to call about 15 witnesses, including police officers, experts and character witnesses. abc's jim avila is covering the high-profile trial. >> good morning, doctor. >> reporter: prosecutors are wrapping their case with the strongest of their witnesses. four doctors from the medical examiner who did jackson's autopsy and a cardiologist to a sleep doctor and the anesthesiologist who literally wrote the dosage book on propofol, all publicly blaming conrad murray for michael jackson's death, even if the insomniac singer demanded the medicine that killed him. >> as physicians we are not just there to enable and provide patients with what they ask us for. >> no matter how much the
patient may beg, you as the doctor have the obligation to say no. >> that is absolutely right. >> reporter: through two weeks of testimony the prosecution's case has shown that michael jackson was overly medicated and claimed dr. murray should have known it. the evidence -- this phone recording. >> i had no childhood. i feel their pain. i feel their hurt. >> reporter: prosecutors presented fingerprint evidence and identified dr. murray's print on a bottle of propofol recovered from jackson's bedroom. jackson's prints were not found. >> the circumstances do not support self-administration of propofol. >> reporter: and prosecutors struck hard at the heart of the case, that dr. murray deviated from the standard of care six lethal ways that resulted, they say, in jackson's death. >> when you monitor a patient, you never leave their side, especially after giving propofol. it's like leaving a baby that's
sleeping on your kitchen countertop. >> reporter: next week the defense gets it turn. and veteran defense attorney mark geragos says they have only one shot, admitting dr. murray was grossly negligent but insisting his mistakes did not kill jackson, miking did that to himself. >> he didn't cause michael jackson's death, that's what the defense argument is as far as i can tell right now. >> jim avila, abc news, los angeles. and the sun will be shining on a solemn ceremony on the washington, d.c. mall, the dedication of the martin luther king jr. memorial seven weeks after hurricane irene forced the original event to be postponed today. president obama will give the keynote speech. aretha franklin and many others will be singing, and some of the surviving civil rights leaders who marched with dr. king, they will be there too. the martin luther king jr. memorial will finally officially be dedicated today. carved from granite and soaring 30 feet, it joins the pantheon
of great american presidents with monuments nearby, washington, jefferson and lincoln where king gave his famous "i have a dream" speech in 1963. >> i have a dream today. >> reporter: joseph lowery, now 90 years old, was one of king's closest confidants. >> i'm very proud of a country that has seen fit to honor him and to honor the movement that he led in such fashion. >> reporter: on the day before the official ceremony, hundreds of people visited the king memorial. >> it was like, you know, my ultimate dream come true to see this happen. >> i think there's a resonance here for me today. >> you could almost see like every race standing here just to see how he's changed america. >> reporter: martin luther king iii was just 10 years old when his father was assassinated in 1968. the king children approved the design of the memorial. >> the first emotion i had when i first saw the monument, i began to -- i had to fight back tears, tears of joy. >> reporter: there's also been
controversy, first over the selection of a chinese sculptor. some thought the sculptor should have been african-american or at least american. now there is growing criticism over one of the quotations on the monument. the excerpt reads -- >> i was the drum major for justice, peace and righteousness. that's powerful. >> reporter: in his actual speech, king condemned people who act like they are a drum major, the leader. he actually said, "if you want to say that i was a drum major, say that i was a drum major for justice." maya angelou among others said the truncated quote lacking the word "if" makes king appear arrogant. but many of those who came here are not bothered by the clash over the inscription. they are here to pay homage to the man. and the national park service and the memorial foundation's executive director say they'll look into changing that drum major inscription.
i would imagine that is going to be changed sometime in the future. you know, but i was listening to some of those inscriptions, the recordings, and you can get them easily online, and it's so powerful to hear dr. king's voice as he says these things. amazing. >> the family, president, so many famous faces and they're going to have good weather this time. right? >> and good music. >> all right. looking forward to that. all right. coming up on "good morning america," risky rescue, the sick american woman stranded for weeks at the south pole could head home. how she's surviving the extreme antarctic conditions and how dangerous the mission to get her out is. plus, new clues. police search an abandoned house near missing baby lisa's home. we'll tell you what they found and talk to our legal analyst, dan abrams, who is in kansas city to talk to lisa's parents. and running of the bulls, american style. where it's happening and how it's different than the world famous spectacle in spain. for me, bedtime was tough.

after likely suffering a stroke. she spoke with us yesterday by phone. the tone of her voice, strained and halting. >> i need to be imaged as soon as possible, hastily, quickly, needs to get out of here. that has been the theme from all of the doctors here. >> reporter: the cargo plane turned rescue plane is waiting here at the united kingdom's rothera base in antarctica for the weather to clear. it left chile on friday to make the treacherous trip to here, the south pole where douceur desperately waits in the south pole for help. her health uncertain. >> i'm waiting, who knows what's going on inside me. i don't know what's going on inside me. >> reporter: her saga began two months ago when she suffered what she believes was a stroke. now her vision and speech are impaired. one doctor who has treated her by phone says a diagnosis is tough without access to the right equipment. >> i think that if she had a disease that was potentially treatable at this point and it
was stuck in antarctica undiagnosed and waiting that, would be a bad thing for her. >> reporter: but it is a dangerous trip. the company that owns the research lab has not been able to get a flight in for months due to bad weather. the last risky medical evacuation here was 1999 when jerri nielsen fitzgerald, a doctor who had diagnosed and treated her own breast cancer for months, was flown out. once rescued, douceur will be flown to new zealand. there after waiting two months she'll get the medical attention she says she desperately needs. >> i am very concerned about my health and the possible ramifications and consequences for staying here. >> reporter: once she does get on that flight, it is a five-hour trip to the coast of antarctica. she'll then change planes and head on to new zealand, but there are some risks on those flights out because doctors are concerned about the effects of the cabin pressure and the oxygen levels given what her
body has already gone through. >> so intense, and as we hear her voice, you can tell that she's very strained and uncomfortable, as well. >> absolutely. yeah, she has gone through a lot. >> our best to her. all right, dan, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you want do this? >> nah, you can do this one. sitting in for ron claiborne since he's here and dan is out is abc's andrea canning with the other headlines this morning. >> good morning, guys. and we missed a real nail biter trying to get your contact lens in. that was interesting. >> i got it in. >> only folks at home knew what was happening. well, good morning, everyone. in the news this morning, dozens of people were arrest ed in cities across the country saturday as the occupy wall street protests went global. most of the crowds were peaceful, but in rome police fired tear gas and water cannons after some protesters turned violent. the white house is pushing united nations nuclear inspectors to release classified information about iran's nuclear program.

abc legal analyst dan abrams will be speaking with baby lisa's parents later today. he joins us now outside their kansas city home. good morning to you, dan. >> reporter: good morning, ron. >> the national guard taking part in that search. what exactly can be gained from that as a practical matter, dan? >> reporter: yeah, you know, ordinarily i would say this is probably just another effort at canvassing particular areas as they've already done in the context of the search, but one thing that's kind of unique about this is that they pick ed a particular day, and that is today, and they said it's just going to be a one-day search in a specific location. so it does make you wonder whether they're doing it based on a specific tip. >> your inference would be there is a tip there, dan? >> reporter: you know, we don't know. we don't know. all we know is that this is the first time the national guard is becoming involved here, and as a result it's leading to more questions. >> we also heard that the police searched an abandoned house not too far away from the family's
home. what did they find? anything of significance there? >> reporter: yeah, you know, it's interesting that a local resident that thought the search should have been searched went in himself and said he found what appeared to be soiled diapers and baby wipes, eventually authorities came, they checked it out. they are indicating that they don't think it's of particular significance because they think it's too old, but it is just another mysterious issue in connection with this case. speaking of mystery, ron, i'm here at the house, and, remember, one of the great mysteries is that window. that's the window where they did a re-enactment to see whether someone could have come into the house, how much noise would have been made, et cetera, and remember, the irwins have said that that window was disturbed and that becomes one of the real crucial questions here is could an intruder have come in that way? >> okay, very quickly, dan, it's been almost two weeks since baby lisa disappeared. what can investigators do other
than calling out the national guard and searching the area? >> reporter: time is their enemy at this point. every day that passes makes it that much more difficult, so it's the most important thing for them is to get as much information as they possibly can in these next few days. >> okay. dan abrams in kansas city, thank you very much. we look forward to seeing your interview with the parents of labor lisa, and you can see that interview with the parents tomorrow morning right here on "gma." coming up on "gma" this morning, if you want to be chased by a 1,500-pound bull, you don't have to leave the u.s. you can stay right here and do it. we'll give you that coming up that story coming up next. up next. it was an ongoing, deep pain. i didn't understand it. i found out that connected to our muscles are nerves that send messages through the body. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia -- thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic, widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide
significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and less pain means, i can feel better and do more of what matters.

♪ baby we were born to ru ♪ baby we were born to run well, normally if you're crazy enough to want to be chased down by a herd of 1,500-pound bulls, you have to hop a plane and head to spain and head to pamplona but not this year. now you don't even have to leave the united states. abc's andrea canning is here with that story. count me out, andrea. >> i thought you've been waiting for this for a long time. >> ron's ready. i'm here. >> for ron. well, that's right. you thrill seekers out there who want to run with the bulls, head to cave creek, arizona, this weekend. hundreds of people have already shown up to join the chase, but it's not quite the same mad dash as it is in spain. >> yes, the de toros. >> reporter: a time-honored tradition dating back 420 years, the running of the bulls in pamplona, spain, has brought millions of daredevils to the city where they try to outrun bulls on the winding cobblestone streets. it's a high-octane dash that gives new meaning to the phrase "the thrill of the chase."
and the risks are high. since 1910 at least 15 people have been killed and thousands injured. now, adrenaline junkies don't need a transatlantic flight to get in on the action. >> i think the main similarities, you've got bulls, you've got people, bulls chasing people. >> all runners, gather in the arena! >> reporter: this weekend, thrill seekers are trying their luck here in cave creek, arizona. >> this was cool about two days ago when i was telling my friends about it, but now what am i doing, why did i do this? you know, was this such a good idea? >> once i got information prior to the bulls being let loose, i'm sure that's the point at which the fear will kick in. hopefully that will help me to run faster. >> my mom told me to call her after i was done. people do it all of the time. they wouldn't do it if it wasn't mostly safe. >> reporter: this is the fourth running of the bulls in the u.s.
and phil organdio, the organizer, says there could be more come. >> a lot of interest, i hope do it in six different major markets across the country. >> reporter: dennis clancey has run with the bulls in pamplona before and says there are differences between spain and this arizona run, like the length of the race and the size of the crowd. >> they're different animals, too. so in spain you have the bull that's been bred for hundreds of years for the bullfight. >> these rodeo bulls don't want nothing to do with you. i guess unless you're in their way. that's the whole idea of this whole deal, isn't it? >> reporter: even if the bulls are tamer here, there is still danger, and the runners still seem pumped up once the race is over. >> a bit out of breath, out of shape but other than that i feel great. i have my adrenaline rush. so i'm happy. >> bottom line, it was a good time. >> it was fun. fired up. >> nerve-racking, but i will do it again. >> terrified for a little bit. you see that big white one? >> i like how they're dressed alike. well, in spain they've got 12 bulls. in arizona, there are 21, but there are fewer
runners in pamplona. several thousand usually show up to run in arizona only about 400. and "the new york times" called it the stroll of the bulls. >> the stroll? >> putting a damper on the danger thing. >> i wonder if governor perry will make a visit once he's in arizona? >> you think? >> all right, andrea, thank you. coming up next on "good morning america," tech generation and why they may never be able to operate a magazine.
