4:03 pm
they recognize that this is an american it's not about negative stereotypes thirty year old gary briggs has served in the national guard for the last two years he's spending his short vacation at occupy wall street does marines national guard navy seals. yeah more the better the guardsmen is outraged at the fact that marines are getting attacked at one o'clock that better should be fired up by. others here believe it won't be long however until the police join the crowds instead of restricting that you're seeing. protesting they're going to work for years and they're going to see that there is zero but even if this doesn't happen the movement won't be scared away any time soon with marines and other military vets pledging to have the protesters back to you. thank you. everybody has banded together and the rope that's being created here you know
4:04 pm
a sword will see a church in our hearts. as well as us also david korten who's been studying the root causes of why thousands of protesting across the country he told me please crack heads on the demonstrations only feuding iger against an unfair system but 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 corruption of the system and the fact that the police also mostly orfield it 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 predominately 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
4:05 pm
conversation in the united states fueled by corporate media focusing attention on the problem as obama as the problem is 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 are true democracy and real markets which work for everyone. come a bit later in the program tonight we give the demonstrators in new york a chance to get their voices heard. these we are so greedy is. money and wealth in materialism and consumerism laurie half of this heads down

to occupied zuccotti park in the big apple. testers for their messages to the street also coming up to germany's multicultural melting pot boils over as immigration drives a deepening divide through communities we report from berlin. and attack me desert as in syria is 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 committees who told another round of talks with syrian officials over the weekend to try to help end the crisis the un estimates more than three thousand people think killed there since march when the uprising against president bashar al assad began some of the protesters have also been calling for a no fly zone over the country and aerial support for nato planes but this isn't syrian writer and democracy campaign and michelle kilo told r.t. the most of the population doesn't support foreign intervention. and we're against military intervention whether it's
4:07 pm
a tape 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 want to add external slavery to our domestic one 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 polygon philology countries. brodbeck is from the us based on people coalition he believes that are like 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. and we're using the same lingo the same scenario of 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
4:08 pm
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 could begin military operations against the syrian air force or air defenses i think the first step 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 materiel 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 israelis to mother
4:09 pm

4:10 pm
many in the international community as of focusing on what is happening externally and certainly the mainstream international media is making a lot of what is going on in gaza to the detriment of what is happening here and with me to talk about this is nicholas simmons who is one of the our social protest is nicollette why are you back on the streets after a two month drought. knesset the parliament is returning from his recess tomorrow that the day after i mean. we just hope that they'll reconsider their budgetary considerations and the problem has been the budget considerations have been about parties and politics in a valid reasoning of the type to control everything we want the budgetary considerations to consider just the general good of the country here in israel is very very important to realize we are not in economic recession a problem isn't that we don't have enough money problem is that it's being mismanaged the government decisions about what to do the money is bad oh oh loads
4:11 pm

4:13 pm
admits it is another pyramid and it 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 without until some conditions it is a fundamental point when there's no legal entity to join you can't a new office in other words everything is shared between millions of private accounts it means no one can put a name to it. financial experts in ukraine see little surprise in my body's latest scheme given the rough patch the country is going through the national bank in order to not allow the depreciation of national currency is like introducing new europe directionless and a lot of people understand the government machine the bureaucracy is against. the press in the financial markets and people looking for an exit nobody claims his

4:16 pm
opponents argue they promote hatred they achieve in some regions in east germany there are nearly no immigrants. it's not because of economy reasons it's because nobody wants redy to go there because it's there always threatened one and the nazi group recently managed to do that right when concert goers huge wearing their bogus chief shirts when they were washed the right wing slogan dissolved to reveal a message urging the wearer to leave the neo nazi group. however german police intelligence estimates that there are eight to ten thousand hard core 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 sadistically you have about fifteen thousand french puzzle hate crimes. of them about eight hundred

4:18 pm
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. . intense ethnic division in africa's newest country has reached disturbing levels of violence this weekend with a suspected rebel attack in south sudan's killed seventy five officials say it was a strike on an oil rich province 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 around three thousand people are thought to have been killed in the country this year alone. there was a series of insurgent attacks in afghanistan in one incidence of taliban suicide

clouds are gathering over the land of the rising sun with japan lurching worryingly towards a financial crisis the country's one of a huge national debt as it struggles to try to recover from this year's earthquake and tsunami disaster so to come out so looks next at how japan's dire circumstances are living it up and teetering on the edge. in many ways the japanese economy is like this it. caught dried out frozen and now having great chunks of value sliced clean up. take the industry itself japanese sushi shops raking in about seventeen billion dollars annually with hungry customers consuming nine million tons of seafood along the way . it's an addiction repeated all around the world but it's not helping the

4:23 pm
action. germany's industry can probably enjoy the current seventy five year into the dollar level for a little while but if this situation doesn't change over a longer period i think we're going to see japanese factories and large companies move their operations overseas places like vietnam thailand or china this would lead to a hollowing out of japanese domestic industry and create unemployment is facing an extraordinary economic crisis. that despite the worries of ruling party lawmakers it is not clear there is anything the japanese government can really do to prevent the soaring from leading japanese businessman stop. money. going in supply industry is gradually losing its ability to sell their products. just aren't selling see the world faces these conditions japanese companies have to
4:24 pm
look for whatever opportunities they can discover but that's not going to be easy in a country where the government itself is the plea in the red japan has the highest national debt among major economies owing almost twice as much as the economy makes in an entire year couple that with the funds needed to rebuild after the devastation only by the earthquake and tsunami earlier this year and it seems japan is fighting a battle it may not be able to win she's already come out to r t tokyo. as thousands continue to protest across america as part of it and the corporate occupy movement the mainstream media is of pains to point out there's a lack of a unified agenda not a half in a structured world all started in new york to discover that every demonstrator has a special something to say the wall street.
