option of police is likely to bring more anger in the streets of new york and beyond. but about now most of the protesters that were arrested from what we're being told more than seven hundred of them have been released or in the process of being released from prison from where they were being held i spoke with one of the protesters who said he wasn't sure if he could come on camera because he has to speak with his lawyer first all of these folks are being charged with disorderly conduct but as we could tell from the video and the images that were taken on saturday this was quite a clash a clash between thousands of americans that began their demonstration at a park by wall street and then walked onto the brooklyn bridge we can't deny the fact that the media in the u.s. is covering it they are but how they're covering it is a different story for example i just want to show you the front page of the new york times from the sunday ok mind you one new york times reporter journalist was arrested in this protest that took place now here the biggest picture is of one

protester in syria and right down here is a little picture of all the new york city protesters that were arrested on the brooklyn bridge so you could see the comparison why they decided to make that decision i have no clue but many critics do believe that the mainstream media are either trying to take credibility away from all these demonstrators who are not and give them ample coverage maybe make it a very short story and in the meantime though these protesters that are part of what's called occupy wall street say they are determined to continue to continue. camping out by wall street that's where they have been for the past two weeks now this incident that we saw in new york on saturday was the most recent one but it's not the first one just last weekend we saw cops and demonstrators clashed down by wall street several women were maysoon the fees by

4:06 pm
european central bank arguing for more power rather than less power because if we need more power to him to further consolidate eurozone into a coherent whole town that's the argument that they're trying to use and i think what these protest movements indicate is it is an acknowledgment on the people's priorities that that can't be allowed to continue because if it goes then just more and more of these types of things will continue to happen is the power call us as if you were in fewer hands or the risk of being seen in the u.s. indicates something's going very wrong in the way the country's rules that's a view of prominent author and professor noam chomsky is full interview is coming up later this hour. the. world's. concerns of the public. system isn't working and the public. popularity.

most popular politician in our country at this point and his rating is even higher . the election campaign has just started let's ask ourselves a simple question what if our people reject us and permitted what will happen to these decisions by the convention these decisions are merely the party's recommendation to vote for those people that's all the choices made by the people and these are not mere words it's absolutely true any politician and any political force may lose an election but many questions are still in the air like why would a politician like me trinidadians whose approval rating is still so high in russia not seek reelection and what will the face of the new cabinet of ministers look like under him should he become pm immediately after the united russia congress maybe rejoiced in the thoughts of the country's top political quis is finally over and they can go about their usual business but this week has shown that when it

4:22 pm
not protecting civilians when they're by i mean cities that are considered to be pro khadafi when they're killing people now because they've done something wrong or because their own political beliefs are contrary to what nato alliance in terms of the kind of government they want for libya so i think that they need to be brought to justice i think though unless there's a very strong international movement for human rights in this instance i think it's unlikely they will be brought to court but the goal of the nato powers is to carry out regime change so i think government is gone once and forever and there will be a new government that will not necessarily be more democratic or more humane but will be an ally or i would say in fact a proxy a client perhaps a puppet of western powers in this country that has the largest oil reserves in all about africa the ninth largest oil reserves in the world syria is another country
