should be fired and coming up by. others here believe it won't be long however until the police join the crowds instead of restricting them you're going to see a lot of reporters protesting they're going to work twenty years and they're going to see that there is zero but even if this doesn't happen the movement won't be scared to wait any time soon with marines and other military vets pledging to have the protesters back. yet again and. i think that everybody has banded together and the rope that's being created here you know sword will cut and if they see a churkin r.t.e. he or us also david korten has been studying the root causes of why thousands of protesting across the country he told me police crackdowns on the demonstrations are only fueling anger against an unfair system. the bulk of the protesters are deeply committed to nonviolence which is extremely important and i think the police
sometimes fail to recognize that when they attack nonviolent protesters it really exposes the the corruption of the system and the fact that the police are fielded to protect the one percent and not to protect the free speech rights of the rest of us that actually draws more support for the protest they are finally drawing attention to the fact that we have an economy actually not only in the united states but in the world that is predominantly working for the for the one percent of people who control the financial system it is not working for the ninety nine percent we've had so much conversation in the united states fueled by corporate media focusing attention on the problem of the problem of the government skipping over the fact that wall street has created an economy that is devoted primarily to making money for rich people through playing financial games we have to address that issue you know people are complaining that the occupy wall street people don't
have clear demands it's actually quite clear what they want they want their economy back they want their government back they want their future back and they actually want a country that operates by principles of true democracy and real markets which which work for everyone. later the program we give demonstrators in new york a chance to get voices heard. these people are so greedy and so. money and wealth that materialism and consumerism were offered to all composites a copy of the big apple for. us protesters for their message to wall street. also come up to germany's multicultural melting pot balls over its immigration good drive the deepening divide. the team pulled from. a massive protest for economic justice is due to take place in the israeli capital
late saturday the organizers are calling for a repeat of september's rallies which sold nearly half a million people take to the streets across the country columnist and writer bradley burston says people are questioning everything the big northern the. the automatic and and basically behind the scenes allocation of resources from many government ministries to new housing developments in the in the occupied territories maybe very much more difficult to carry out without scrutiny the questioning has a lot to do with transparency the question has a lot to do with what actually is happening with the resources that are going to the finance and we're going to the settlements and even if the settlement activity is not blocked the fact of the of the allocations the widespread nature of allocations from many ministries and the nature of the subsidies that go out to the settlements may change people's minds of eventually about the wisdom of
continuing to build their. the massive financial pyramid scheme which wiped millions of people's life savings in russia in the one nine hundred ninety s. is back its eccentric found time for his dodgy accounting then but now say it was in ukraine a queuing up to hand over their hard earned money again alexia jeff skilling explains more. the twenty eleven russian hit movie the pyramid depicts a robinhood of the nine hundred ninety s. a businessman who promises well for dinner people and confronts the oligarchs. the real story behind the split was a sad episode in russia supposed soviet history the financial pyramid called attracted millions vowing to multiply their investment many times in the end it went bust up to fifteen million people lost their life savings hope i don't feel like i'm a sinner what about m m m ninety four it was undermined by the government so i knew
him a man emerged with virtually unlimited resources absolutely i'm controlled so the situation was not acceptable and everything was done to eliminated game of orgy the driving force behind the m.m.m. movement spent five years in prison for fraud but now the man often called the russian bernie madoff is back seventeen years since his financial pyramid had walked. back with another financial scheme and while you could hardly find any commercial enterprise the streets of ukraine cities have been literally flooded with calls to join in with the. weekend do more is the slogan of the new complain at mit's it is another pyramid and is a risky venture but still promises people that they will make money this. is a virtual currency called dollars which constantly goes up in price from twenty to sixty percent a month this price only i can see it some individuals exchange money between
themselves without any obligations got into some conditions it is a fundamental point when there is no legal entity new joint account new office in other words everything is shared between millions of private accounts it means no one can put an end to it. financial experts in ukraine see little surprise in mahdi's latest scheme given the rough patch the country is going through the national bank is like you know ordered not the depreciation of national currency is like introducing in your restrictions and. government machine the bureaucracy is against something like administer to the press in the financial markets and people are looking for an exit he claims his actions are legal ukraine's politicians disagree the ruling party wants current laws tightened to block m.n. from making off with vulnerable people's nast eggs m m m m m two thousand and eleven there's a provision in financial services and requires
a license providing financial services without a license is a criminal offense. m.m. twenty eleven already has one point five million investors and counting. again convinced it is a road to riches try telling that to the many millions of victims left with nothing and still reeling from his previous ponzi. scheme r t reporting from here in ukraine. germany's on a damage limitation drive to try to curb a rise in neo nazi ism and nationalist groups during decades of the now defunct multi culti policy the more the country tried to united's ethnic communities the more it forced them apart and voters eyes are now turning towards hardline right wing parties as i reports the worry is that the cultural divide could violently tear society. what do these two very different pieces of music have in common they're both
performed in germany and they increasingly represent clashing forms of society here we want. immigrants in germany just the illegal ones yes and after that the other day i was told that's the view of the national democratic party or n.p. d. here in germany they've supported many concerts attended by right wing supporters but their opponents argue they promote hatred they achieve that in some regions in east germany than you have no immigrants. it's not because of a comic reasons but it's because nobody wants rudy to go there because it's there always threatened one anti nazi group recently managed to do right wing concert goers into wearing their bogus t. shirts when they were washed the right wing slogan dissolved to reveal a message urging the wearer to leave the near nazi group. however german police
intelligence estimates that there are eight to ten thousand hardcore militant neo nazis in the country those behind the stunt say that those numbers mean germany's problem is in the top three in europe every year in germany statistically you have about fifteen thousand twenty thousand hate crimes. of them about eight hundred violent crimes so that's also been in the top five from europe when we put accusations of inciting hatred to the n.p.t. they were unmoved germany is the state of the germans but if you are today you have parts in berlin with more than thirty forty percent of foreign us when it's just too much germany has large. ethnic minority populations from turkey the arab world and beyond many families now have second and third generation members
with german citizenship and they're gaining political representatives who defy anyone who says they don't belong here m p d or other parties. could not say to me or take to this part of me to be german whereas most political parties are now finding candidates from the ethnic groups they represent those on the right of posting the banners and slogans with the message go back where you came from with such a political divide the potential is there for german politics to become a lot nastier it's not immediately obvious that this fruit and vegetable store is at the edge of the turkish district in berlin it looks much like a fruit and vegetable stall elsewhere in the city but the question being fought over in political debates is will this region become a route for cultural exchange or a border between essentially foreign territories tom watson r.t. . and attacked by army desert is in syria is reportedly left seventeen soldiers
dead according to human rights groups this comes after the arab league condemned the continuing killings of civilians in the country and the regime protests the ministerial committees judea to hold another round of talks with syrian officials over the weekend to try to help end the crisis the u.n. now estimating more than three thousand patients been killed since march when the uprising against president bashar assad began some of the protesters have also been calling for a no fly zone over the country and aerial support from nato warplanes are still there to offer the looters a strong foundation for political economic and social research in neighboring turkey thanks for being on r.t. international is much appreciated tonight we're getting reports of defectors now within the syrian army ranks are we seeing a turning point do you think in the conflict there. first of all irish say that the army defections are or would be a key method to provide the dissolution of the syrian regime but i don't think we
are at that stage yet at that stage where the defectors would have enough and then pull the numbers and also the capital city to topple the syrian regime i think both the syrian regime and the defectors have been inflating. their numbers they have been talking about ten thousand soldiers ready to fight against the syrian regime and i think if they had that number i think. we have been facing would have been facing a very different scenario in syria i think the other problem is the current defectors are not coming from the higher ranks of the syrian army i think in order to get that kept heavily and that influence and power to face with the syrian regime they are going to need to have more defectors in terms of numbers and also they have to you know force or they have to make possible the factions or the high ranking
officials is there and hardening thing. i think it's happening but it's happening very slowly and i think it's going to take some time let's talk about this no fly zone this being called for by some of the protesters to think that the u.s. and its allies will answer those calls now the finished in libya. i don't think so in the short run and i don't think that no fly zone would be an official way to face with the assad regime because when we see the development of the protests and the brutal crackdown of the syrian regime against the protesters we see that the syrian regime has been using its land forces a lot except for occasional use of helicopters to shut down the protesters and using a no fly zone like the one in libya i don't think would be an official way to face with these brutal crackdown of to even what we. now see it begs the
question of why they've actually called for it because we saw the very same thing called for in libya didn't way you can kind of understand what it was for there but here as you say attacks have been coming from the sky if you like so you think the protesters really understand the implications of this no fly zone that they're calling for of the country i think i think this is a problem. strong parallels have been establishment's the libyan case and the syrian case i think this is a grave error because there are grave differences between the syrian case and the libyan case then we look at the libyan case we see that there has already been a kind of dorothy equally divided libya and we had a base for the protesters or the oppositional forces you know fighting in underdone of libyan national transitional council and we had you know normally two fighting groups or armies fighting each other and the libyan air force have been
used at the time against a position of forces and you know we don't even know the future implications of this no fly zone in libya i think they're going to start talking about this implications now but they. compare it with libya because they see that there is success in the libyan case but when we look at the syrian case i think it's completely different i mean if you look at it's like social fabric or the sectarian lines in syria we see that all groups. from the opposition and also the fighting this regime groups have been living together the syrian giora if you keep dorothy those will let you know a scenario like the one in libya there are you know completely briefly the what can be done the arab league's meeting isn't it this weekend sunday to try it out find a an end to the crisis what do you think needs to be done. first of all i don't
think that an arab league initiative that would create a dialogue. at the end of each suddenly leap forward or stay in power would not be a solution for the syrian problem i don't think as a solution assad in power staying in power would be acceptable to the syrian opposition and i think assad has already. hit his ledger timoci in syria what should be done is an international consensus and the arab league should be a key continent of these consensus and i think the economy exemptions that are designed to target some key all fish and key figures within the syrian regime or those who are supporting the syrian regime also from the business. can be an efficient way to kind of pressure syria to change their you know methods of brutal
crackdown also there are some key countries in that includes russia china and iran in the syrian case i think some other way should be found to talk with these states and to persecute them to personate that the international community is not there to mingle with the internal syrian their fears but to protect the civilians that are under the fire of the syrian regime for notice thank you so much for your thoughts of the program from the foundation for political economic and social research as you and i and protect you much thank you. the intense ethnic division in africa's newest country have reached disturbing levels of violence this weekend where a suspected rebel attack in saudi killed seventy five people officials say was a strike on the country's oil rich unity state most of the fatalities were rebel fighters but fifteen civilians also died so sudan has been plagued by tribal violence since it began declaring autonomy from sudan in two thousand and five

tens of thousands continue to protest across america as part of the anti corporate occupy movement the mainstream media is it pains to point out there's a lack of a unified agenda l'oreal for his return to where it all started in new york to discover that every demonstrator has a special something to say to wall street. the protesters of occupy wall street are clearly fed up with wall street and with washington so what do you think they would have to say to their would be oppressors this week let's talk about that i would like to say you're human beings also do you see the suffering that people are going through do you know what it's like we want the health insurance that you have everybody should have that health insurance we should have the basic rights and the basic care we the people more than your
venture care we need you to join us because they're just people to be an us versus them we need your help poor personhood what is that and corporations that are have felt as though it's ok to exploit people and exploit the planet for profit and profit alone so what do you have to say to those corporations well i don't have to say anything other than i don't support them how do you say be fair and share to someone or something that does not know what what kind of concept this is and do qadi we practice we're a community where we share our resources these people are are so greedy and so fed by money and wealth and materialism and consumerism you still have a message for all these corporate bigwigs who are taking millions and not supporting their messages and so them my message is to make sure that these
soldiers that are here that they continue to believe that this conversation is important and that these people are involved in a process to constructing a role where dreams are possible right now dreams are impossible in america for a lot of people these people need to believe that dreams must continue that's why we're here so it seems like the bottom line is the protesters are less interested in talking to wall streeters and washington themselves and more interested in keeping the conversation and the power among the people themselves. well for the resident next week sometime i spoke coming up shortly here tonight with dimitris gould the latest from the tennis the end of season championships in istanbul also got your essential weekend in moscow out on me as to my name is kevin owen thank you for watching international live from moscow.
