2:02 pm
fight for space essentially for their right to be out protesting in other major cities in the united states in san francisco five were arrested after a confrontation with with the police over a parking campaign we've seen a lot of action over the weekend in chicago an estimated one hundred seventy five people were arrested in new york an unprecedented number of people marched to 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 have taken to the streets 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
2:03 pm
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 spend and also the new law and 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 record. their discontent zif and i and graphic thousands of americans have resorted to banners 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
2:04 pm
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 those 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 that i would talk 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 economists 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 the protests and 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
2:05 pm
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 offshore to china they've lost their houses they saw a huge run up in home 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 pieces. it's an banners which as graphic as they are hardly convey the full message of the movement the demonstrators are spreading their own paper now called occupied 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 works against quote political machines and their p.r.
2:06 pm
slick's taking control of the protest message one word to describe these ongoing protests from the beginning is frustration on their team it's 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 third day now to leave the heart of london's financial district like their fellow competitors across the atlantic their anger is directed at corporate greed of state cutbacks the square in front of some paul's cathedral source standoff between several thousand activists and police. approaches also continued in front of the european central bank in frankfurt germany the demonstrators are set up a tent camp and say they plan to stay until the demands for a strict global financial institutions are met. you could keep track of the latest

2:09 pm
violence peacekeepers used rubber bullets and tear gas against the serbs the circumstances are right now very complicated and what may look peaceful for now could explode at any time. well you can follow reflection of twitter feed for the latest developments from kosovo she's been tweeting the latest from her about rising anger amongst the parakeets over the ongoing deadlock as nato forces prepared to enact their planned maybe tomorrow it's a story we're following closely follow a twitter. feed for the latest information spoke to political analyst alexander publishers in belgrade painful dismantles about a case that would contradict its stated peacekeeping mission. they're there to enforce the peace and that's all but k. four for since the end of july has actually been undertaking to help the albanians round out their own sovereign state against un resolution twelve forty four so
2:10 pm
they've overstepped their mandate if they weren't doing that they would have absolutely no problem with the serbs anywhere in kosovo before july twenty fifth there was really no reason for pay for it to be in the north everything was peaceful it was only when the albanians sent to their special police forces up north to establish a border between possible and serbia that came forward decided to assist them and this is why they need freedom of movement to actually assist a course of albany and building their illegal state belgrade is trying to keep it all peaceful they can break and try to they can only appeal to individual countries and to worldwide public opinion because everyone is very resolved in 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 crew is actually using force for no reason at all and if the case for moves there they'll
2:11 pm
be the ones using force to close the service 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 will all do it peacefully so it's really public opinion is the last i guess defense of the peaceful demonstrators in northern coastal now we don't know what you think by this story on our website you can give us your thoughts about a youth leagues to blame for the conflict so on kosovo's northern border right now this is what's been telling their species that when it gets stuck you know calm ok over two thirds of you it was sixty five percent last i was going to just a tad put the blame on washington for the cost of those independents fifteen percent of your cues in belgrade if not protecting cost of said twelve percent of you think we can keep things in the order and again just six percent say pushed in that allowed the present so you can add your voice but you could make a change because what you think about it said home page. syrians are out in protest of an arab league decision not to suspend their country
2:12 pm
from the organization footage released by the opposition shows hundreds on the streets in the southern province of there are arab league countries her voice ever called on the syrian government to start negotiations with the country's opposition and that follows a promise from president assad to draft a new constitution within four months and allow a multi-party parliament to kill the demands of the protesters you may recall results his tests are certified the rascasse for us for some but won't be enough. calls for a change in the forms seven months in. one of those calls is to create a real touristic political system since nine hundred seventy two politics was only open to parties that acknowledged the supreme role of the ruling baath party enjoyed its called action analogous for bashar al assad issued a decree passing the multi-party law. for dean this is a moment he has been waiting for the chance to add a new voice to syrian politics. we're applying to become
2:13 pm
a political party so we can be more effective we can influence parliament access and help create laws defend them and this is 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 they do all that under their conditions and in recent deadly clashes in cities like understand and live the president appointed a committee to draft a new constitution within four months one sticking point is article eight which states that we bath party is the leader of the state and society the opposition
2:14 pm
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 article eight are going to be under review we shall have almost a new constitution where a new multi-party system will 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 value 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 for the first national development party out there in the final stages of the application process of becoming an official party here in syria well after a decade of listening to promises of reform bill. now feel that this could be real let me set the thing for us are still you are to damascus syria. libya's revolution

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 too 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. meanwhile the historic prisoner swap between israel and hamas faces scrutiny the israeli hard courts to hear titian's against a swap of a thousand palestinians in exchange for israeli soldier gilad shalit have been followed by an organization representing the families of israelis killed or wounded in palestinian militias attacks they want the list of prisoners scrutinize if the deal goes ahead half of the palestinians will be released on tuesday or the rest
