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 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 it 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 trying financial dame's we have

an attack by army desert is in syria's reportedly left seventeen soldiers dead according to human rights groups it comes after the arab league condemned the continuing 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 help end the crisis the u.n. estimates 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 dissident syrian writer and democracy campaigner michel kilo told me that most of the population doesn't support foreign intervention. we are against military intervention whether it's a day tomorrow or in ten years time even if the regime is to ny late everyone of us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't want to add external slavery to our domestic law we don't want it 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 poly go on philology countries. brought back of the 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. we're 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 with the 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 go a way to defend civilians it's really a way to begin the war to begin military operations against the syrian air force or
3:08 pm
air defenses i think the first and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human material for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin the civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change thousands of demonstrators for economic justice filling the streets of the israeli capital once again after nearly a two month break their own happy with the government spending policies they want parliament to send next year's budget plan back to the drawing board let's get the

latest multis poorness lee and she's in tel aviv where the full a good evening good to see tonight now we sold nearly half a million protesters across the country back in september didn't we but they've since bad to get by other means so why they're back on the streets again tonight it begs the question. well as you say this is the first time in nearly two months that social protest as of taking to the streets as you can see behind me there are tens of thousands of people here in television as well as in cities across the country now the last demonstration back in september in early september so a million people come to the streets in the country logan i was satisfied with that turnout and after that a lot of the protesters many of them are university students return to process and things had to take a little bit of it all but certainly now what we have seen in the last few hours is not only attention on what is happening internally here the israeli air force has also launched strikes on southern gaza eleven people have been killed five of them
3:10 pm
are members of the islamic jihad organization that is well holds a sponsible for a grad missile that was fired into israel earlier in the week the concern here though talking to people is that this story of social demonstrations will not be missed by many in the international community as it focuses on what is happening externally and certainly the mainstream international media is making a lot of what is going on gaza to the detriment of what is happening here in the last few hours they has been a volley of rockets fired from gaza into southern israel several people have been injured dozens of people are being treated and with me to talk about this is nicholas simmons who is one of the social protesters nicolette why are you back on the streets after a two month lull. the knesset the parliament is returning from its recess tomorrow that the day after i mean. we just hope that they'll reconsider their budgetary considerations and the problem has been that the budgetary considerations have been
3:11 pm
about parties and politics they've been about leading the tycoons who seem to control everything we want the budgetary considerations to consider just the general good of the country is this an admission that the demonstrations until now have not really achieved that much the demonstrations have. caused a huge amount of social awareness that was attacked in that report which made some very very nice concessions but it just didn't go far enough what about the protests happening in new york are you inspired by occupy wall street well it makes us happy that people are getting out on the streets to campaign for their own rights for the governments to think about them rather than about themselves here in israel it's very very important to realize we are not in economic recession our problem isn't that we don't have enough money problem is that it's being mismanaged the government decisions about what to do with the money is bad this does differ from what's happening in europe in america where they just run out of money what about these airstrikes in gaza have been talking to people here and they say it's just
3:12 pm
convenient the timing that now when people are taking back to the streets the israeli army launches a strikes on gaza for years israeli internal issues have been neglected because there's always been a defense story that always will be a defense story it's not going to go away by a more praising within the protests i can tell you internally the protest movement is aligned to the defense story they just care about what's happening inside the country the fed story is not going to go away we're going to carry on whatever happens at externally but i want to just remind you that back on august the sixteenth when the social demonstrations where at the height is well known and a strike on gaza as well now we have been hearing that the demonstration that was planned tonight in beer sheva which is a town not far from the dock support it has been canceled and there was concern here earlier in tel aviv that this demonstration too would be canceled but certainly when you hear the cries of people here and really they slogan is the people demand social justice people here saying that the government can do what it
