1:02 pm
protesters they had to move their tents those who refused to comply or unless they were in that tense in the park were all dragged down we're getting reports that around half dozen people who were arrested in seattle this morning this monday morning protestors have to fight for a space essentially for their right to be out protesting in other we just citizen of the united states in san francisco five were arrested after a confrontation with with the police over parking temperament we've seen a lot of action over the weekend this you mentioned in chicago an estimated one hundred seventy five people were arrested in new york an unprecedented number of people marched through times square the march itself was peaceful however once it arrived at times square a group of protesters were trapped by police barricades and held for several hours on able to move to the right or left or get out police force the crowd back nearly trampling some of the protesters police scooters went over several people a total of ninety two arrests were made in the course of the occupy wall street actions in new york over this weekend the protesters who are taking to the streets
1:03 pm
in dozens of cities in the u.s. say they will stay as long as it takes to and economic injustice each and every one of these protesters is out there with their own grievances but the general theme is take money out of politics they feel their government represents the interests of the very few wealthy rather than the ninety nine percent is the demonstrators call themselves since last year corporations have been allowed to funnel as much money as they want into political campaigns in the u.s. the new legislation means they don't even have to disclose the amounts they spent and also the new law political donations effectively gives the corporations even more influence in washington leaving many americans wondering whether their voice is being heard now on different ways and means through which the protestors are trying to get their. message across here is my report. says their discontent loud. guy and graphic thousands of americans have resorted to banners
1:04 pm
and t. shirts to get their message across that a frustration with what they see is the government acting on behalf of big corporations rather than the people message which the protesters say their media failed to deliver the media feels like these kinds of events don't deserve coverage sometimes all you get when you do something this is a photograph and so it's very important for the message to be seen though simple oftentimes handwritten messages that people carry on their chests have often been subject to mockery what is the sign of occupy wall street brother that most of the five of the people. i would think of what does that mean. it seems the only fault of these people is presented in the american media is that they don't all have a degree in economics and finances and are not able to explain their grievances in professional economies terms various groups emboldened to cheer the end of the greatest system known to man and replace it with what who cares let's nap
1:05 pm
the protests on wall street or mindless and when you ask people in wall street what they want they don't know the acts that took place over the last thirty years with regards to national debt and debt within the system generally all of these things are very complicated and difficult for the general public to understand and people in the media and people on wall street like it that way because if you don't understand it then you know you don't get what happened but the american people know that they've gotten hosed they've lost their jobs they've seen them all short of china they've lost their houses they saw a huge run up in all prices that are collapsed and people are saying you know what i know that i've got screwed by all of this but i don't know how i got screwed but americans who. took to the streets are looking to express themselves by means other than motivational piece shirts and banners which as graphic as they are hardly convey the full message of the movement the demonstrators are spreading their own
1:06 pm
paper now called occupy wall street journal which details what they are unhappy with and makes it clear that they are not rooting for one particular party it also warns against quote political machines and their p.r. slick's taking control of the protest message one word to describe these ongoing protests from the beginning is frustration on their team shirts on cardboard on the backs of pizza boxes as we've seen people express that frustration that is the movement grows the ways of getting their message across also much more and as people here say this paper is just the beginning i'm going to check our reporting from last r.t. . meanwhile around two hundred protesters inspired by the occupy wall street movement are refusing for a day to leave the heart of london's financial district but their fellow campaigners across the atlantic their anger is directed at corporate greed and stake a square in front of him paul's cathedral saw

1:11 pm
belgrade and in northern costs of all to have this resolved in a peaceful way and i think the important thing is that we can see that coups actually using force for no reason at all and if ok for moves there they'll be the ones using force to cross the serbs of that explicitly said that they would not use force and if there are barriers are removed they would just put up new ones but they were all do it peacefully so it's really public opinion is the last i guess defense of the peaceful demonstrators in northern coastal. now on a website to give us your thoughts about you who you think is to blame for the conflict in kosovo is northern border this is what you've been telling us these are the what has been stacking up and out of south knew. that up sixty five percent almost two thirds of you now put the blame on washington for customers independent seventeen percent said belgrade accused belgrade rather of not protecting kosovo service twelve percent say the e.u. keep things in a little bit six percent of you think pretty. allows the persecution of serbs

a decree passing the multi-party law. for dean this is the moment he has been waiting for the chance to add a new voice to syrian politics. we're applying to become a political party so we can be more effective we can influence parliament access and help create laws defend us the new law allows parties that are open to all syrians regardless of ethnicity and religion and are not affiliated with organizations outside of syria but the newly formed internal opposition the national coordination council or n.c.c. will not participate it's not about us not wanting to participate it's about them not being serious about these reforms there's no environment for dialogue the violence must stop political prisoners must be released even though they passed the multi-party law and will draw up a new constitution all that under their conditions and that recent deadly clashes in cities like other stan and it live the president appointed a committee to draft
1:14 pm
a new constitution within four months one sticking point is article eight which states that the bath party is the leader of the state and society the opposition argues this undermines the essence of multiple parties you know some some people in the party leadership have come to the conclusion that article eight and more dangerous articles in the constitution that articulate are going to be under review we should have almost a new constitution where a new multi-party system would be achieved without any difficulties perhaps change is coming to syria but the street protests and violent clashes have been dragging on for months some valley and they will not stop until bashar al assad steps down so is it simply too little too late. meetings like this happen on a daily basis from the national development party out there in the final stages of the application process of becoming an official party here in syria well after

1:18 pm
very anti palestinian anti muslim very pro israel because israel is against stands against the same enemy that america has and so america is beholden to this exaggeratedly pro israel and the palestinian attitude and where america goes the quartet goes so international mediation at least until the election in america is pointless and it can't help. but to think that israel can solve the problem with out international mediation is also impossible but it's to lieberman's liking because lieberman does not want to solve the problem he doesn't want any interference he wants to go on with the occupation as it is. for some people illnesses in russia of where you live whether you live or die one debilitating genetic disease suffered by kids is very treatable but only if your postcode is the
