it is now at just after five pm on monday here in moscow this is oxy with me roll research showing the protesters continue to gather on the streets of new york following saturday's brutal showdown on brooklyn bridge and saw more than seven hundred people arrested the movement called occupy wall street is promising more machos against corporate greed and social inequality. caught up with some of those involved. a new season in a different nation the arab spring has become america's autumn and on saturday new york's brooklyn bridge reminded many of a scene from egypt to here square. nearly eight hundred protesters were trapped cuffed arrested and jailed as thousands of activists continued their second week of occupy wall street demonstrations the grassroots movement is campaigning against social inequality and corporate
influence over u.s. politics in the interim police conduct against peaceful protesters has come into question. just last week a new york city police officer attacked occupy wall street protesters with pepper spray prompting public outrage and an internal affairs investigation many didn't believe that there would be another dramatic congregation this weekend after what happened last weekend after four women were pepper spray while they were corralled by the police after the n.y.p.d. used heavy handed tactics punching some protesters i think many people didn't expect that there would be something like that again this weekend so i am no reports pepper spray being used there were thousands of people stopped and hundreds arrested arrested activists were charged with disorderly conduct and summons to appear in criminal court. by say. sunday hundreds appeared on wall street
determined to continue their fight against corporate domination once you are not afraid to be arrested anymore the whole entire control of the police state disappears when that happens there are credible possibilities that are open to us and suddenly you can imagine a different world and you believe you can be an agent of change the group says it aims to raise national awareness and change america's economic disparity occupy wall street describes itself as a resistance movement inspired in part by counterparts we can follow the leader of our brothers and sisters all over the world hairspring in greece and spain and we can see that it did send a powerful message ordinary people are not going to stand for corporate greed anymore and that we're getting up and we're doing something about it. and the reason these activists are doing something on wall street rather than washington is
because they say you have to follow the money begin where the largest campaign contributions donations and lobby groups come from its corporate president and we were told obama was for change for you know will be four years old billy. bush. before that his father the bush dynasty i mean corporate greed goes all the way up to the president i think this is where the the are doing to me pulse of it starts out wall street it is true that these demonstrators come here with a variety of different messages but what is uniting not what unifies them is a growing frustration over the u.s. economy social inequality and corporate influence on u.s. politics these protesters say if american leaders can't act it will be the american citizens that stand up for their rights reporting from wall street more important part see here. while i take a firsthand look at the protests in new york city just head for the free video section on our website. the new it's
a pretty shot by all of these crews who have been following their progress from the spot available for you to download for free twenty four seventh's going to free video dot com the biggest son of course other exclusive material. all investigative journalist and blogger george map says that police brutality will fuel the protests that could potentially overwhelm the u.s. this is just one incident many of the n.y.p.d. gone wild last week they sprayed with mace in the face of women protesting they were all someone that screams i'm a crown they were protesting peacefully and they were mason the face definitely should be worried i can definitely see these protests spreading throughout america and one day be on the steps of capitol hill or possibly from the white house. sara flounders or from the activist group international action center says the u.s. is preaching democracy all around the world while forgetting about the rights of
its own people at home. this is really a police effort to shut down mass dissent hear see u.s. government that claims to speak for democracy all over the world while dropping bombs on people and many many countries and here at home when people are involved in democratic protests and demonstrations against the domination of wall street representing really the interests of the vast majority of people the latest polls today show that seventy five percent of the population is sympathetic to these protests. and coming up a little bit later today artie's peter lavelle and his cross talk us discuss who if anyone is influencing the decisions taken by the governments is a preview. government. is not doing what its public wants of doing what its interest groups want at the moment those interest groups are the labor unions and this person more of big corporations who plays well ok labor unions
a trade you know makes an excellent go ahead steve switch to just one of the extraordinary histories are well term easy here let's remember one simple fact right in the united states today in the private sector that dominates our economy six point nine percent of workers are represented by a trade union ninety three and point one percent of our working class in the private sector has no union to explain government policy based on the union movement as probably me and powerless as this is a fantasy. life for moscow this is arts he greece has admitted it's still not able to deal with his deficit the key demand of its international creditors that's even taking into account mass layoffs announced just about twenty four hours ago a new round of austerity cuts which still need parliament's approval sisera furthur
ports from the greek capital. it's been his search that is not going to be able to hit those task deficit reduction targets that it is set right now that sparked a fresh face decrease when you get that next cash injection the eight billion here is that it needs to avoid bankruptcy. because a choice audit team hear the name and say enough is trying to hammer out some kind of deal or not it is worth remembering that at this point what's bad for greece is going to be extremely bad for the rest of the usa so it's really in a very tough position indeed all these measures in place to try and avoid default which is many people i've been speaking to here in athens is that really at this point an inevitability will greece now to fold that's the million dollar question or to be more exact the four hundred fifty billion euro question to take to greece now. but could never be let's be. you think about greece who ever four hundred fifty billion euros of government there you need to be.
or or i don't know what to believe something the big government is running out of options they can keep trying to impose the state to start the measures that would likely lead to more of the violent clashes we've seen between riot police and protesters in the last weeks and months or they can instead choose to default theories in leaders have insisted that the fault is not an option their concern that was greece to do you say it could spark a financial meltdown in the u.s. but there's now a growing recognition that behind closed doors other options are being considered a good hold is different from the cards has been on the cards now for a year and a half or two have been on the cards because when you have a dead holder hanging over the exorbitant size that we have here in greece it is impossible to imagine that the state here we can be i means by which you can reduce
it so the default was always going to happen. as a default speculation rumbles on it's become clear there are fundamental flaws in the usa and operation i think europe citizens have the right to know what the causes are at the moment they're being deflected from the real causes and they are being asked to blame little greece little greece however idiotic it may have proved in the past is ease and never was incapable of spearheading a global financial crisis see just who is to blame but what we are experiencing in greece today. using a new kind of war using international. or international financial crime syndicate for the past eighteen months the greek government has cut wages raise taxes just pensions and in return received billions of year in bailout funds now as they await the next eight billion cash injection many are left
wondering if it's all been worth it just to give you another number when we first. it was about one. of the. now over fifty in the latest. series that it's going to be in the one. nine so in just two years after all of this for the people in the stagnation of the economy not. this increase in. protest and strike action now an almost daily occurrence greek government faces a huge crisis of confidence amongst its electorate financially in the red politically in the dark greece's population leasing their patience if greece does the folk the future of the year is saying looks extremely uncertain indeed many
people here feel but not to the say is to risk their country sinking deeper into financial and economic ruin. athens. well britain may not be a part of the eurozone but its economy is suffering the same we report from manchester are an angry crowd of thousands came out to protest to say cuts and not the arts. here with r.t. now russia has launched another glowing ass navigation satellite into orbit to bring the total number now to twenty four it means the system has reached a global coverage matching that of america's g.p.s. put all of our reports well this is the twenty fourth saw so i that's been launched as part of the glue in us system twenty four the number the minimum number the glowing us needs to be able to provide full global coverage now we will see four more cloner satellites launched throughout the rest of the next year and not the
required amount which they set out to provide the best service to customers they'll be looking to use this now it's been a long old road for glowing us from its first development back in the eighty's is a. development project by the u.s.s.r. it was then taken over by russia and they've been trying to get it up to speed to make it a valid rival to the g.p.s. system produced in the united states though it has been a rocky road as well just there last december three grown our satellites plummeted out of the sky into the pacific ocean now twenty four satellites are in orbit the specialists say that glowed us can provide precise coverage up to six meters on the ground now take this for example with the g.p.s. technologies they can place you accurately within seven meters the target for gload us now is to convince consumers and convince manufacturers of products that need

just we are much more vulnerable to a global recession because of the potential weakness in the oil price and the price and demand for other commodities and is second reason why we see more volatility is because russia doesn't have a strong enough to mystic capital base. you know because we don't yet have you know extensive structured pension funds and unstructured stephen schemes as is the case in most other markets we are very reliant on foreign capital flows to a much greater extent than other emerging markets so when there is any reason for investors to be nervous about global events they will take their money out of emerging markets and we do not have the substitution of domestic money which countries like brazil india and china do have. to look at how the markets are doing all prices are lower on concerns the slowing u.s. economy and europe's debts could fuel to mountains investors expect reports to show manufacturing in the u.s. barely grew in september light sweet is trading at seventy seven dollars over
