9:03 pm
recognize that this is an american movement it's not about hippies in the negative stereotypes thirty year old gary briggs has served in the national guard for the last two years he's spending his short be cation at occupy wall street guys marines where they're from. yeah more the better the guardsman is outraged at the fact that marines are getting attacked at home the cop that did or should be fired but not by. others here believe it won't be long however until the police join the crowds instead of restricting that you're going to see a lot of protesting because they're going to work forty 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. i think. everybody
9:04 pm
has banded together and the rope that's being created here no sword will cry and if they see churkin are our t. he or. and in the report we've just seen we saw sergeant shamar thomas confront members of the n.y.p.d. over their treatment of protesters later he spoke to us and told us why he felt he had to speak out scott olsen is a patriot to this country and he you know decided to go out and stand up for the people he chose to protect in iraq so see that you know the police know this or coffee him or his uniform was shocking and you know unbelievable the protests are decided that they will peacefully march through the streets you know you know cheney knew you know these are our streets because you know the up they are our streets and the police you know really going hard to. stop what we're trying to do peacefully and trying to you know i feel like they were trying to incite violence and. you know be disorderly but everybody kept it peaceful nobody you know
9:05 pm
did any sort of violent acts toward the police but. in my twenty five years on this earth that was one of the greatest things that i've ever been a part of as far as what would change the american people to catch on they were all about this is this is about and i mean opposite of america that a hardworking that you know good citizens they go to you know go to work every day come home and take care of their kids this is this is about the america that we all know and love us author david korten has been studying the root causes of are protesting across the country he says 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 also mostly
9:06 pm
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. 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 or 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 trying financial teams we have to address that issue you know people are complaining that the wall street people don't have clear demands it's actually quite clear what they want they want their economy bappa they want their government back they want their future back and they
9:07 pm
actually want a country that operates by principles over true democracy and real markets which which work for everyone. later in the program we give the demonstrators in new york a chance to let their voices be heard. these people are so greedy. by money and wealth and materialism and consumerism occupied zuccotti park in the big apple for the way have missed those their vast protesters for their message wall street. and of germany's multicultural melting pot boils over as immigration anger drives a deepening that divide through communities by the reports from berlin. activists say syrian security forces have killed at least thirty people during mass protests calling for the downfall of president bashar assad's regime this comes after the arab league condemned of the continuing killings of civilians in the country the
9:08 pm
arab ministerial committee is due to hold another round of talks with syrian officials later on sunday to help end the crisis the u.n. estimates more than three thousand people have been killed since march when the anti regime uprising 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 whiter and democracy to show true low told are true that most of the population there does not want support from them. we're against military intervention but this is a day to morrow or in ten years time even if the regime was 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 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 gone for large
9:09 pm
a country. from the foundation for political economic and social research and believes that military intervention will not help to resolve the political crisis. i don't think that north fly zone would be an official way to face with the assad regime because when we ceded a lot of the protests and the brutal crackdown of the cedar ridge you may gain some protesters we see that the syrian regime has been using its its length forces a lot except for the 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 peace with peace. you know crackdown of the regime strong parallels have been a stop wish with 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
9:10 pm
libyan case. 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. i mean from the opposition and also the fighting the regime groups they are believing together the syrian jorak it dorothy does all let you know a scenario like the one in libya and now to israel where thousands of demonstrators protesting against social inequality and government spending policy took to the streets of tel aviv again after a nearly two month break artie's palace lear brings us the latest. the last demonstration back in september in early september so monica a million people come to the streets of the country logan i was satisfied with their turnout and also that a lot of the protesters many of them are university students return to process and things had to take a little bit of an adult said he now but we have seen in the last few hours not
9:11 pm
only attention on what is happening internally here from the israeli air force has also gone to the strikes on southern gaza eleven people have been killed finally in who are members of the islamic jihad organization that is all holds are 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 a focuses 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 are so sure protesters nicolette why are you back on the streets after a two month. knesset the parliament is returning to his recess tomorrow that a day off i mean. we just hope that they'll reconsider their budgetary considerations and the problem is being at the budget considerations have been
9:12 pm
about parties and politics it's been about raising the tycoons who seem 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 or a problem it 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 but both start up over thirty when you hear the cries of people hear and read a slogan is the people demand of social justice people who are saying that the government can do what it wants to detract attention but they certainly will not give out. and what they say are being made to him it demands that his balls they are reporting for us there are no moving on millions of russians lost their life savings in the one nine hundred ninety s. in what proved to be a massive financial pyramid scheme and now it's back its eccentric founder has come up with another financial plan and in ukraine the savers are getting in line to
9:13 pm

9:14 pm
russian bernie madoff is back to seventeen years right now still pyramid had walked . back with another financial theme and was then what you could hardly find any commercial enterprise in the streets of ukraine cities have been literally flooded with the calls joining in with the m.m.m. twenty eleven. we can do more is the slogan of the new complain of broady admits 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 to me i can see it some individuals exchange money between themselves without any obligations without until some conditions it is a fundamental point when there is no legal entity to join a kind of new office in other words everything is shared between millions of private accounts means no one can put an end to it. financial experts in ukraine
9:15 pm
