a party park after almost two months of protest only for the raid by riot police and legal challenge by activists are in a point ny has the details. the scene here in zuccotti park has literally been turned on its head not because old be occupied protesters and activists and supporters are standing on the outside of the park behind barricades in the inside of the park if you take a look right over here occupying zuccotti park are police officers in riot gear police officers in regular uniforms and also a what is believed to be private security on behalf of the property owners of zuccotti park quite a stark difference from the past eight weeks that we've seen hundreds of occupy wall street baptist camped out there creating a community a community did to get out the message about wealth inequality but of course that community was shut down tuesday one am went off hundreds of police officers raided

turned back to zuccotti park with their tents then the city appeal that ruling and in the final decision made by a judge the final. was that those activists of the occupy activists can return to zuccotti park but without their sleeping bags without their tents without their tarps ultimately city officials have won this round because they have made life a lot more inconvenient for the occupy after this. the occupy wall street movement a movement that and marking its two month anniversary on thursday many people believe that that is the reason why they get by the market go up to sleep because this is the momentum we did speak with some of the activists that can take a part of the work part. because what occurred at the stance of this campaign is not giving up it is maybe even inspired by the resistance that recently

big force in american two month anniversary they say that the city can expect many more demonstrations throughout the spring freedom works i am urging. on the social injustice which the occupy movement is campaigning and it is hitting that young the hardest of the american students close to a trillion dollars in loans well in the hands of debt that's missed. decades of economic neglect is leaving the next generation to pay for post mistakes. people are putting off starting businesses put off starting families putting off children they're not the best thing they're not innovating and they're not doing any of the economically stipulated things that we need all americans to be doing right now so that we can dig ourselves out of the hole created by the read of those at the very top. so far in terms of the occupy wall street movement and the
12:11 am
people finally rising up fighting back against these i think it's about time and i believe that the occupy movement has taken on this issue because it really just goes to show how badly this country has suffered due to the economic policies of the last thirty years. but it's a turbulent two months for the occupy movement christine for zone looks now at how it started and why it spread so rapidly across the united states. and you could say it started with a whisper called by canadian activist group adbusters that spread on facebook through three. states this very spot wall street is the site of a heinous crime but before long that whisper turned into a roar. a collective anger at wall street corruption a growing income inequality in america and that

a system in which government policy is often dictated by corporate greed before long the crowds brought police. and police brought pepper spray was a story brought on more protesters and a few days later seven hundred of them were arrested on the brooklyn bridge. instead of scaring people away scenes like this. outrage the masses and before long occupy movements multiplied from los angeles. to chicago. to boston. and just about everywhere in between the mood grew darker as authorities threaten to clear the tent city at zuccotti park the last minute they were allowed to remain

12:14 am
once again in oakland. and in portland. st louis to name a few and new york's zuccotti park the heart of the movement also cleared for the first time since the movement began now many worry what's next for occupy d.c. so one of the first things they did here is to clear this part of the park protesters tell me they've moved their tents closer to one another if they've condensed their efforts because they want to stay focused they want to stay organized i think there's a chance that some of the protesters from the other occupations around the country could wind up here on k. street because this is one of the last places very few clashes with police in washington christine preserve our team. was that had this syria gets shut out r.t.r. who's pulling the strings arab league is taking a tough stance on its own estimates of this outside influence and susan suspend

12:17 am
brought us up to charges of being dictatorial and the democratic politicians think this is a warning to all e.u. leaders who try to help their population oppose all spending cuts and you have to go well it can be done in italy. can be done in greece it's only a matter of time. before it can be done anywhere else good financial analyst makes causes of things buying because of the very worst sort to put in charge at this time people say well. beggars know best but the bankers are the ones to have stolen all the money so are we going to give them more ability to still more money in a post more austerity measures that's insane but there is saw in the e.u. may have gone to fall with boiling over it so bijou spirity measures the more the board brothels seventy people have been injured in protest. greek civil servants and teachers walked out of big jobs on tuesday over wage and pension cuts i think

12:19 am
nowhere to go and there is not an easy solution to but. the european leaders always thought it we're doing the right thing for the citizens and they have to be grateful and what we do should not be challenged and now it is challenged in the streets of of greece and italy and at the ballot box in germany and in finland and this is a message i think. still has to understand. yes more thoughts on how europe. pick itself up from dutch people did here and i think in just over an hour's time here nancy. the arab league is set to curtail syria's membership organization later on wednesday meeting damascus is boycotting the suspension along with sanctions were decided last saturday in attempt to for syria to end its crackdown on anti-government protests which is already the bloodiest month since the uprisings began in march at least one hundred forty people have

a war on the cheap when libya is such a tribal society of over one hundred tribes and many more subclans western style democracy being imposed on libya all the m.t.c. throwing off false democracy is just not going to work with a lot of blood feuds going on not least normally gadhafi himself. one of the prominent leading members of his tribe so what we're going to see is an increase in this into tribal warfare do you has a political content is not just in the tribal it represents forces which want libya to return to independence and the financial times called the resource nationalism government and the n.p.c. factions who all fight against other as well who want to sell their country the game reports on the ground and nato are still being called in by the rebels the right against the resistance and that's developing in libya so this isn't the situation that libyans are facing. but rather be a tries to steer itself towards recovery does at least have one ace up its sleeve. dot com reports online how western companies are not only up for their stake but
