to us and certainly 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 its counterparts we can volunteer believe our brothers and sisters all over the world care of spring 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 since we were told obama was for. for you know maybe four years old. bush.
10:04 am
before that his father the bush dynasty i mean corporate greed goes all the way up to the president i think this is where they are doing to me pulse a great start to 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. well if you want to get a firsthand look at the protests ongoing in new york city just head for the free video section on our website the newest footage shot by our crews have been following the protest from the spot available for you to download for free just log on to free video dot com for this of course exclusive material.

well meantime investigative journalist and blogger george up says the police brutality will fuel the protests that could potentially overwhelm the u.s. . this is one incident of many of the n.y.p.d. gone wild last week they sprayed with mace in the face. of the women protesting they were all someone that scream from 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 from the activist group international action center says that the us is preaching democracy all around the world while forgetting about the rights of its own people. this is really a police effort to shut down mass to send here see us government that claims to speak for democracy all over the world while dropping bombs on people in many many
10:06 am
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's show that seventy five percent of the population is sympathetic to these protests. coming up next hour here on our very own people of elena's cross talk us to discussing who if anyone is influencing the decisions taken by the government it's a government nowadays is not doing what its public wants of doing what its interest groups want at the moment those interest groups will lead to unions and. more big corporations who plays well ok are you sure you do need some actual steve go ahead steve switch to john what an extraordinary here. these are here let's remember one simple fact right in the united states today in the private sector that
10:07 am
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 soon to see. crosstalk next hour here on our c now greece has admitted its still not able to deal with this deficit the key demand of its international creditors that's even taking into account must layoffs announced just on sunday and a new round of austerity cuts which still need parliament's approval. reports the greek capital the greek government has said that is going to be able to hit these tough deficit reduction targets that it is right now that spot to a fresh face think we get that next cash injection the eight billion euro that it
10:08 am
needs to avoid bankruptcy. because the troika owed it team here the name in say enough is trying to hammer out some kind of deal and that it is worth remembering that at this point what's bad for greece is going to be extremely bad for the rest of the year they say so it's really in a very tough position indeed over these measures in place to try and avoid differ. which is many people i've been speaking see here in athens is that really at this point in inevitability will greece now default that's the million dollar question or to be more exact the four hundred fifty billion euro question. that greece now. about could never be paid let's be. you think about greece ever four hundred fifty billion euros of government there you need to be if you would or or i don't know what to believe something like the greek government running out of options they can keep trying to impose the state to start the measures that would
10:09 am
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 the year is a new leaders have insisted that default is not an option they're concerned that work least a decent it could spark a financial meltdown in the usa but there's now a growing recognition that behind closed doors other options are being considered a group called is different on the cards has been on the cards now for a year and a half or two have been in the cards because when you have a dead holder hanging over the exorbitant size but we have here in greece it is impossible to imagine that the state here will say we can be a 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 that 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
10:10 am
being asked to blame little greece little greece however idiotic it may have proved in the past. and never was incapable of spearheading a global financial crisis see just who is to blame for what we are experiencing in greece to do. it is a financial. new kind of war it is an 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. first. of. now over one hundred fifty.

10:23 am
price and demand for other commodities and the second reason why we see more follett delivery 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 sniffing schemes as is the case in most other markets we are very reliant on foreign capital flows to a much greater extent than those are 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. let's take a look at the markets now or prices are lower on concerns that slowing u.s. economy on europe's debt could curb fuel demand investors expect reports show manufacturing in the u.s. september like sweetest trading at seventy seven dollars a barrel while brant blend just over a hundred dollars a barrel u.s. stocks that turn around up to opening the lower following the european markets the
