2:04 pm
thousands of protests across the country he told me place crackdowns on the demonstrations are only shooting anger against an unfair system the bulk of the protestors 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 also mostly 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 as obama as the problem is the government is skipping over the faster that wall street has
2:05 pm
created an economy that is devoted primarily to making money for rich people through trying financial teams 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 are true democracy and and real markets which which work for everyone. just let you know come a bit later in the program tomorrow we give the demonstrators in new york a chance to get their voices heard again to. these people are so greedy. by money and wealth in materialism and consumerism during half a list heads down to occupied zuccotti park in the big apple for us protesters for their message to wall street. also ahead germany's multicultural melting pot boils

over as immigration anger drives a deepening divide through communities are t.v. reports from berlin. and attacked by army deserters and syria's reportedly left seventeen soldiers dead according to human rights groups it comes after the arab league condemned the continued killings of civilians in the country and the regime protests the arab ministerial committee is due to hold another round of talks with syrian officials over the weekend to try to help end the crisis the u.n. estimates now more than three thousand people have 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 but this isn't syrian writer and democracy campaign and michelle a lawyer told r.t. that most of the population doesn't support foreign intervention. we're against military intervention but it's a day to morrow or in ten years time even if the regime is to ny late every one of us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't
2:07 pm
want to add external slavery to our domestic one we don't want to become a part of the struggle between the international and internal forces syrians are peaceful they want to progress under conditions of freedom and development and they don't want to turn into a concentration camp a polygon for larger countries. back of us based antiwar coalition believes that unlike libya syria is too strong for the alliance to intervene that's why the west wants to spark a civil war to bring regime change. more using the same lingo the same scenario the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with the advance with the support would be intervention through multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like
