mean every square inch of. the park the. reason why the demonstrators are doing this is because new york city mayor michael bloomberg paid a visit or personally on wednesday evening walk through and told all the protesters that they would to temporarily leave the park on friday so that it could be cleaned up now the protesters believe that this is an effort city officials are making to remove it from the grounds that they have been camping out so they decided to take the initiative and clean the park on their own now of course the occupy wall street movement has been referring to themselves and the majority of americans as the ninety nine percent they believe that one percent of americans the richest that live in the u.s. basically the vast amount of money and that the disparity between rich and poor is
12:06 am
growing deeper and deeper some facts were compiled by a variety of different organizations and those statistics include the fact that the top one percent. forty percent of america's wealth now this disparity of courting to reports is worse than it's been in the past twenty five years at its worst level the second point is that the top one percent take home twenty five percent of america's national income and the third point is that the top one percent owns top of the country's stocks bonds and mutual funds this is just a little relief synopsis of what you. think about. corporate greed possibly or when they talk about the economic disparities in the united states. and the and big business movements now preparing to go international
12:07 am
protests were due to take place in canada u.k. and are even spreading to asia let's get more on this from our correspondent for you sure who's in the indian capital new delhi hello to priya i want to get on in the you work city as occupy wall street has spread to dozens of american cities but what makes the movement attractive to people in other countries. that's right marina well you know we were just hearing from marina partner and seeing those pictures that energy that's happening in new york city and across the united states has definitely spread here to asia and actually use the use the movement here has mobilized on facebook and on twitter and they're planning an actual occupy type a soul hong kong jakarta even islam of god so the movement in asia is growing there's
12:08 am
a lot of support for it here in india you know what there and there are a lot of similarities between the goals and the massive of the people in the united states and here in india we saw a massive anti-corruption movement here in india recently that was fronted by on a husband or a worth thousands of young people showed up to support his fast against the government so many of those people are said to come out to this movement as well and many people compare that corruption movement here in india to the arab spring and now people are saying it's a very it has very close ties to what's going on on occupy wall street so as i said very very close similarities there it's also important to note that this by india is growing economy we talk about the growing middle class here it has one of the youngest workforce is in the world people are here are a little bit suspicious of the multinational companies the corporations that
12:09 am
they're talking about over in the united states the difficulty american companies you see it happen a lot here just recently i went to hyderabad then met with some of the malice which is actually a growing movement here in india they are against globalization and their main point is that while it is economy might be growing the rich in here are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and it's the floor and. corporations that are really benefiting from india's young workforce and not india and that and that's a point that i think has really struck a chord with them and many people here in india and it's not just the maoists average indians have come out protesting against coca-cola for example for supposedly overusing water when there's been a water scarcity that i've reported on in much of this country we've seen monsanto the american multinational company who many in this country believe has a huge monopoly on the seeds of that farmers need to grow their crocs and then in
12:10 am
addition you think about both policy and example bhopal the union carbide corporation company an american company was actually accused of killing thousands of indians in that gas tragedy back in one thousand nine hundred four so there are many many examples you look at all these huge not multinational companies including pasco that's trying to build a twelve billion dollars steel plant here in india and many villagers have been protesting that as saying that that steel plant is trying to take away their land so the occupy wall street movement is getting a lot of support here in asia and surprising supporter might be actually china a new movement of leftists in china or socialist critics of the country's capital capitalist style economic reforms are also beginning to lend support to the occupy wall street movement there even reporting that this is a quote unquote great revolution against capitalism around the world the activists

have held protests in the province according to some news websites however a lot in the mainstream seem to be ignoring these these protests despite the growing popularity since that region seems to have a lot of protests in the past and they have been in the past referred to as math incidents as opposed to mass protests but it's shaping up to be quick. why to weekend here in asia those protests that i mentioned in hyderabad mumbai jakarta are all that to happen on saturdays so i think people will be keeping a very close eye on what's happening in asia and there are very close links to feelings here with what's happening in new york as well marina absolutely seems like the rate the movement in france is spreading over to other regions it's quite incredible well pray for now though thanks very much indeed for your analysis and the update from new delhi appreciate her reporting there for us. in
