showing solidarity with the anti-corporate greed demonstrators here in the u.s. some of the protests have turned ugly. we have team coverage from new york city and in europe and we'll start with abc's lama hasan in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i hope you can hear me. the protesters behind me having a meeting mobilizing themselves, 500 of them spent the night here and largely a peaceful atmosphere. more of a carnival atmosphere here, but that certainly wasn't the case in other cities across europe. it was a global day as anger and rage against corporate greed and austerity measures. the most violent in rome, clashes exploded in the shadows of the colosseum. protesters rampaged through the streets, smashed store windows and set cars on fire. police responded with tear gas and water cannons. as rome burned the protest spread like wildfire.
from berlin, where 4,000 people tried to march through the city's parliamentary building, some scuffles broke out. to frankfurt, where they converged on the european central bank. to madrid, a huge show of force. and in london, the numbers swelled throughout the day. they were pushed away from the london stock exchange by police so they took their voices to st. paul's cathedral. >> let me go! >> reporter: wikileaks founder julian assange was one of them and addressed the crowd. >> this movement is not about the destruction of law. it is about the construction of law. >> reporter: as night fell the protestors pitched tents and slept wherever they could, under the watchful eye of the police. diehard protesters call this an occupation, saying they're not going anywhere any time soon, vowing to stay through december.
>> not just in europe, it's here in new york as well. demonstrators have been on the move, making their way to times square where thousands staged a noisy rally and protests have spread to several other cities across the country as well. abc's t.j. winick is in lower manhattan and has the details. good morning. >> reporter: bianna, good morning. more than 80 protesters arrested in new york city yesterday. i must tell you i've season weekend demonstrations get bigger and bigger over the past month, and yesterday, thousands took their message uptown to the landmark known as the crossroads of the world. occupy wall street was transformed into occupy times square late saturday. and soon the demonstrations turned disorderly. >> let them go! >> reporter: this clash with police came just hours after 6,000 occupiers flooded into the iconic intersection. >> occupy times square!
>> reporter: while most of saturday's crowd was peaceful -- >> ladies and gentlemen, you have to move. >> reporter: officers took no chances as they cleared the streets at nightfall, arresting those who failed to leave. earlier in the day, 24 demonstrators were handcuffed and removed from a nearby citibank, charged with criminal trespassing. from california to florida -- >> we are the 99%. >> reporter: occupy supporters were out in full force one month after the movement began. back in new york, it was a busy day for demonstrators. first marching from the home base in the financial district to greenwich village. >> us taxpayers are bailing out wall street, the banks and corporations but that money isn't going back to the people. >> reporter: protesters portrayed wealthy wall street bankers as pigs and sharks. an act some in the park some weren't buying.
>> it's fabricated. it's not an authentic movement. >> reporter: now, sunday has traditionally a day of rest for protesters here in new york but tonight here at 7:00 p.m. they will be holding what they call their general assembly meeting here at zucotti park. >> thank you. t.j. winick reporting. >> turning to politics and your voice and your vote, a day after rick perry laid out his jobs plan some critics question whether he can relate to the struggles of the average american, after a comment his wife made. governor perry is not the only one with a common touch problem. abc's david kerley has the story from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the top issue for all of the candidates, jobs and the economy and the candidates and even their spouses are being judged on how much sympathy they show on that issue. more than 14 million americans looking for work are looking for answers. and anita perry's answer to an unemployed man surprised many,
when the governor's wife compared the out of work man with her son's situation. >> our son hasn't found his job because of the federal regulations. washington has put on us. >> reporter: younger perry told us he was quitting his job at big bank to campaign for his father. >> i did that because he's got the vision. >> reporter: all raises a question, can successful politicians relate to the pain of the unemployed? >> some of these republican candidates are not using the common touch right now and you're seeing the reactions of it from some people that say these guys just don't get it. >> i'm proud to be the son of two tenant farmers. >> reporter: rick perry was raised in a farmhouse that didn't have running water but he's worth at least $1 million. herman cain raised by working class parents is worth $3 to $6 million and has been blunt about those without a job. >> don't blame wall street. don't blame the big banks. if you don't have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself.
>> reporter: frontrunner and multimillionaire mitt romney has also had his moments. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> reporter: a fine line. telling the story of the american dream when for so many it's become a nightmare. >> good to see you. >> reporter: michele bachmann is worth between $1 and $3 million. >> i'm a former federal tax lawyer and my husband and i started our own company. i get it with job creation, and i think what people see in me is that i'm a real person. >> reporter: and this fine line i'm talking about is really the fact that a lot of republican base is big on self-reliance, how do the candidates appeal to the base and show sympathy to those without a job? bianna. >> david, thank you. turn to christiane amanpour, host of "this week," joining us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. campaign finance reports are out and showing a disparity among republican contenders, michele bachmann, jon huntsman bleeding
through cash and others flush with it. obviously talking about mitt romney and perry. perry's raising $17 million. mitt romney 14 million. so, does that 17 million for perry, who is the leader there, does that add new life to his campaign? so many were saying he may be on the outs given he's down in the polls didn't perform well in the debates? >> you're right. he's raised the most and it is going to give him new life because people have been less than impressed by his campaign and debate performance. what this does in this system is buy a lot of time and power and television ads. so, he will remain a formidable candidate according to all of the experts who say so and bringing out and already has, very punchy ads against who, mitt romney, considered the most important challenger. >> i want to stick with that. you have david axelrod on the show, managing the president's re-election campaign, and he and the president came out swinging against mitt romney this week talking about his record and
talking about the fact he wants to raise taxes on the middle class. since they're focusing on him does it mean they think he'll be the republican nominee? >> they won't say it as clearly and categorically as that but yes, they believe he's the most formidable candidate and formidable opponent, that is why they're directing all their ammunition at him and we'll have david axelrod talking about that. and you'll hear him very clearly single out what they consider the ways they're going to run against mitt romney and all they consider are his weaknesses. have to add also, talking about campaign finances, president obama has pulled in basically double the combined funding and finances that the other republican candidates have pulled in so far, that makes him a very formidable opponent as well. >> that's right. it seems like a very interesting show this morning. christiane, have to leave it there. thank you so much. be sure to join her on "this week" when her guests will include president obama's chief strategist david axelrod. >> let me do this --
>> go ahead. for a look at the other news, andrea canning in for ron claiborne. >> does it feel good, ron? >> i'll try to do you proud in this chair. >> you scared me. good morning. in the new this is morning, more american troops than expected may be returning home from iraq by the end of the year. the obama administration is reportedly scaling back a proposal to keep as many as 5,000 troops to train the iraq military. iraqi lawmakers refewing to give troops legal immunity. the white house and pentagon have not reeved a final decision. bangkok spared from the worst flooding in thailand decades. water receding around the capital, shielded by an elaborate system of flood walls and tunnels. monsoon rains that began in late july have affected two-thirds of the country. apple is holding a memorial service for steve jobs tonight. top silicone valley executives and others close to jobs are expected to attend the invitation-only event on the

as a joke. ron would do that, wouldn't you? >> sure. >> lady gaga, why not? >> sack phone -- saxophone playing is not that difficult. >> you have done it before. >> right. >> looked like a fun night. >> time for the weather and scott padgett from our miami affiliate wplg local 10. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. and the majority of the country not too bad, turn your attention to the sunshine state, not seeing a lot of sunshine. cloud cover continued to roll through and a lot of run to the south, possibly in the keys. that's where today's not going to be the best. turn our attention to the rainfall totals, possibly one to two inches, cold front rolling through and some warm weather on the way south of it.
>> we'll have more coming up. the prosecution expected to rest its case in the trial of michael jackson's doctor conrad murray. then the defense will begin to tell its side of the story. expected to call 15 witnesses, including police officers, experts and character witnesses. abc's jim avila is covering the high-profile trial. >> good morning. >> reporter: prosecutors are wrapping their case with the strongest of their witnesses. four doctors, from the medical examiner who did jackson's autopsy and a cardiologist, to a sleep doctor and the anesthesiologist who literally wrote the dosage book on propofol, all publicly blaming conrad murray for michael jackson's death, even if the insomniac singer demanded the
medicine that killed him. >> as physicians, we are not just there to enable and provide patients with what they ask us for. >> no matter how much the patient may beg, you as the doctor have the obligation to say no. >> that is absolutely right. >> reporter: through two weeks of testimony the prosecution's case has shown that michael jackson was overly medicated and claimed dr. murray should have known it. the evidence -- this phone recording. >> i had no childhood. i feel their pain. i feel their hurt. >> reporter: prosecutors presented fingerprint evidence and identified dr. murray's print on a bottle of propofol recovered from jackson's bedroom. jackson's prints were not found support self-administration of propofol. >> reporter: prosecutors struck
hard at the heart of the case that dr. murray deviated from the standard of care in six lethal ways that resulted in jackson's death. >> when you monitor a patient you never leave their side, especially after giving propofol. it's like leaving a baby that's sleeping on your kitchen countertop. >> reporter: next week the defense gets it turn. and veteran defense attorney mark garrigos says they have one shot -- that dr. murray was grossly negligent but his mistakes didn't kill jackson, jackson did it himself. >> he didn't cause michael jackson's death, that's the defense argument as far as i can tell right now. the sun will be shining on a solemn ceremony on the washington, d.c. mall, dedication of the martin luther king, jr. memorial, seven weeks after hurricane irene forced the original event to be postponed. president obama will give the keynote speech. aretha franklin and many others singing, and surviving civil rights leaders who marched with dr. king will be there, too.
the martin luther king, jr. memorial will finally officially be dedicate dad. carved from granite and soaring 30 feet it joins the pantheon of great american presidents with memorials nearby, washington, jefferson and lincoln, where king gave speech. >> joseph lowery now 90 was one of king's closest confidants. >> i'm proud of a country that mass seen fit to honor him and honor the movement that he led in such fashion. >> reporter: on the day before the official ceremony, hundreds of people visited the king memorial. >> like the ultimate dream come true to see this happen. >> a resonance here for me today. >> you could see every race here to see how he's changed america. >> reporter: martin luther king iii was 10 when his father was assassinated in 1968. the king children approved the
design of the memorial. >> the first emotion i had when the first saw the monument, i began -- i had to fight back tears, tears of joy. >> reporter: there is also controversy. first over the selection of a chinese sculptor, some thought the sculptor should have been african american or at least american. now there is growing criticism over one of the quotations on the monument. the excerpt reads -- >> i was the drum major for justice, peace and righteousness. that's powerful. >> reporter: in his actual speech king condemned people who act like they are a drum major, the leader. he actually said, "if you want to say i was a drum major, say that i was a drum major for justice." maya angelou among others said the truncated quote lacking the word "if" makes king appear arrogant. but many that came here are not bothered over the clash of the inscription, they're here to pay homage to the man. and the national park service
and memorial foundation's executive director say they'll look into changing that drum major inscription. i would imagine that is changed some time in the future. i was listening to some inscriptions, the recordings, and you can get them online and so powerful to hear dr. king's voice as he says these things. amazing. >> family, president, so many famous faces and good weather this time. >> and good music. >> looking forward to that. coming up on "good morning america," risky rescue, the sick american woman stranded for weeks at the south pole could hold home. how she's surviving the extreme antarctic conditions and how the dangerous the mission to get her out is. new clues, police search an abandoned house near missing baby lisa's home. we'll tell you what they found and talk to dan abrams who is in kansas city to talk to lisa's parents. and running of the bulls, american style. where it's happening and how it's different than the world famous spectacle in spain.

national guard is becoming involved and as a result leading to more questions. >> we also heard that the police searched an abandoned house not too far away from the family home. what did they find? anything of significance there? >> reporter: it's interesting, it's a local resident that thought the search should have been searched, went in himself and found what appeared to be soiled diapers and baby wipes, eventually authorities came and checked it out. they are indicating that they don't think it's of particular significance because they think it's too old but it is just another mysterious issue in connection with this case. speaking of mystery, ron, i'm here at the house and remember, one of the great mysteries is that window. that's the window where they did a reenactment to see whether someone could have come into the house, how much noise would have been made, et cetera, and remember, the irwins have said that window was disturbed and that becomes one of the real
crucial questions here is could an intruder have come in that way. >> very quickly, almost two weeks since baby lisa disappeared. what can investigators do other than calling out the national guard and searching the area? >> reporter: time is their enemy at this point. every day that passes makes it that much more difficult, so it's the most important thing for them is to get as much information as they possibly can in these next few days. >> okay. dan abrams in kansas city, thank you, we look forward to your interview of the parents. you can see that tomorrow morning here on "gma." coming up, if you want to be chased by a 1500-pound bull, you don't have to leave the u.s. that story coming up next. ext. my whole body hurt. it was an ongoing, deep pain. i didn't understand it. i found out that connected to our muscles are nerves that send messages through the body. my doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia --

you see that big white one? >> i like how they're dressed alike. in spain 12 bulls in arizona 21 but fewer runners in pamplona, run, and arizona only about a four hundred, and "the new york times" called it the stroll of the bulls. >> the stroll? >> putting a damper on the danger thing. >> i wonder if prince harry will make a visit when he's in arizona. coming up next on "good morning america," tech generation, why they may never be able to operate a magazine.
