broadcasting live from the center of moscow this is r t with me rory sushant army defectors have reportedly crossed over to fight alongside opposition forces in northern syria but the government insists they are armed gangs threatening the public and they're not revolutionaries and the u.n. human rights office has raised the tally meantime of those killed during the seventh month uprising now to over three thousand parties tests are cilia as more. about one hundred eighty kilometers north of the mass this is a city of unrest on the site of five days of recent deadly clashes between security forces and protesters in which at least thirty died it's close to the cities of homs and hama where most anti assad protests have been taking place evidence of fighting in oliver stone is plain to see there was an air of suspicion the tense mood only broken by children now smiling but only two weeks ago these youngsters
were witness to violence in their home town like this eleven year old we heard very heavy fire we heard airplanes but didn't see them it sounded like they were flying high we were really afraid and we were crying the whole time. the child was one of the few to talk most of us are locals we met were hesitant to say anything about what happened telling us they didn't want to get into trouble. the areas governor gives his explanation why the military arrived there were groups of people who had their own demands they had these demands for a little while and then it all escalated when they armed themselves we saw the situation had become a threat to the people and that's why we decided an intervention should take place in. the inside six reality or if there was the son of god somebody this is what their way of what basically i'm working with me see here this
was basically. from our side here was i but opposition activists insist that these were not on gas or terrorists but army defectors so far the government has said little on the subject of decisions from the military i think it's a kind of a strategy by the government and the weakening the moron of the of the army that we can. get a divorce so if they talk about the friction. then it became a signal that would be there would be more of the friction so instead he. was i'm going with this kind of this would serve the purpose but under the circumstances the morale of most affected by the violence in understand is that a ruthless doesn't silly out on a list in syria. you are watching on t.v.
it's good to have your company today still ahead for you this hour twenty one years of stagnation the little known self-proclaimed republic of trans new in eastern europe remains frozen in poverty and ethnic conflict and many believe it's the leader who is to blame. and automatic attraction we report on why an inhospitable go in the arctic ocean has become a welcoming home for immigrants from all around the world. and corporate protestors in new york are preparing to stand their ground members of the occupy wall street movement say all thorens are planning to forcefully evict them from a park where they've been camped out for the past month let's get the latest now from new york. standing by for us live. in new york mayor michael bloomberg about to start cleaning out the park as he carrying out his threat at this point that's right showdown would have taken place at zuccotti park in deferred it
and that's because around. that property owners the heart property has now throughout this city officials it will not be the new york city police department to remove the protesters off the park clean but instead the property owners will negotiate directly with the. wall street demonstrators now this decision of course has been leave after one thousand people turned out at zuccotti park. police from going into. park and removing the protesters the crowd was as you get i think it's fair to say was unprecedented because it wasn't just members of the occupy movement and you also saw the union members go down to live to the wall street park they are still there and form sort of a blockade or brow beat occupy protesters that were linked arm in arm around the park in addition to the union members you saw
a local elected officials down at the park are personally making statements to new york city mayor michael bloomberg they told him that he's on the wrong side of history and his legacy is that state he removes these people peaceful protesters tried in the park now of course mayor bloomberg billionaire mayor went down to the park wednesday evening to personally tell the protesters they would have to vacate the park so that it could be clean and the protesters decided that they would clean it on their own and they have spent the past twenty four hours scrubbing every inch of the park to make sure it was up to the conditions that the property owners would be happy with so they would not have to vacate the property now when this announcement was made the crowd erupted a crowd of about two thousand people down at this park supporting the occupy movement there were cheers they were there was hollers there was screaming and
yelling and she said it was a demonstration of one leader when one person rather in the crowd said that the occupy movement is truly fighting for the country that day marks a date the world will see that the occupy wall street movement is completely unstoppable and i have to say for the past four weeks we've been seeing this these marches goals of the city are where the crowd chants of people united could never be defeated in and i think this instance clearly understood or is that because you saw the crowds united in a crowd of all ages from all different backgrounds. it's religions professions all come together and stand by this occupy wall street movement. there are some that might say it seems. that it takes a billion a lot of a microbrew bucks to go down to the protesters who are protesting protesting against the economic situation so it's a billionaire to tell them to go home now we've seen no four weeks of protests now and demonstrations are sweeping all across america does it look like it's going to
continue. not just it looks like it will absolutely continue and it will not just continue in new york city this movement is going to bring. the world's ills within the next twenty four hours those that have been dreaming media from the occupy wall street site called world will be as a form darkie within the next twenty four hours more than seventy countries and more than six hundred cities around the world who are joining this movement a movement where the crowd comes together demanding democracy demanding that elected leaders. not on the the financial elites now rob my colleague in india korea streeter just how a little glimpse of what is taking place in asia and she brings us this report. that energy that's happening in new york city and across the united states of
definitely spread here to asia and actually the youth movement here has mobilized on facebook and on twitter and they are planning an actual occupy type a soul hong kong moment by jakarta then even if you want a bad so the movement in asia is growing there's a lot of support for and here in kenya you know and there are a lot of similarities between the goals and the mass ijaz of the peep. well in the united states and here in india we saw a massive anti-corruption movement here in india recently that was fronted by our now has are 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 new men 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 people here are a little bit suspicious of these multinational companies the corporations that they're talking about over in the united states the sickly american companies you see it happen a lot here while india's economy might be growing the rich in india are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and it's the foreign corporations that are really benefiting from india's young work for if. it is proved true to reporting right then i would have more countries are joining the protests against the sun but we are closely following all the latest developments on our website of course on the dot com but also while you tube channel you can go online to get full on coverage.
these are the. day. to help the e.u. deal with this debt now it's time for governments to take. credit. reports. the patience of european central bank does seem to be running out it says that it can't really take the whole burden on itself it really needs the european government to come through and take some action because the latest country with problems is its problems with its solidarity a failure of solidarity it's got a great it is great again it's going to make it even call the police to raise money
if they were expecting protests or have the biggest protests so far. it's been just in spain now russia's prime minister has come out and said that europe's governments. problem if they wanted to know when you might. crises is more political than a financial issue according to different estimates between one and one and a half trillion dollars is needed the number is big but the usa can handle it it's a political issue because in order to gather the resources the leading european countries must offer a shoulder to those in trouble political courage so governments in europe are accused of passing the blame no one wants to take responsibility but russia is one of many countries which is concerned by this because of course when the european economies are suffering the rest of the world has a knock on effect portugal is the latest country which is new also there are two measures that means more taxes potentially education health costing more and we are expecting coordinated action coordinated protests across europe including in lisbon
over those austerity measures over the cuts which are thought to be extremely painful for the population now we've also seen the. saying that he does expect those governments to come through with those cuts in order to balance this budget there is a meeting today and tomorrow of the world's leading finance ministers as they try to tackle this crisis has been in portugal might just be too painful for the people who take these austerity measures my colleague has spoken to . some of those victims. i'm afraid i'm afraid of the future i'm afraid that. things are going to be like they are right now people are. not going to be able to . employ lucia's in the active member of the portuguese indignados delish movement its participants believe the government is hell bent on pleasing
the rich and powerful and ignores the needs of the people to have to realize that we are not. for them. it's happening it's happening everywhere inspiring. the worst rate of unemployment in thirty years at over twelve percent rising taxes and falling wages are the reality of portugal's a bleak present situation things are so bad people are no making comparisons with cataclysmic periods in their history and looking to them for inspiration in a few centuries ago was in a situation similar to its present state because it was lagging the capital was all but destroyed by an earthquake one market. that's his stature right there managed to pull the country out of the crisis three hundred years on however if you believe everybody will be able to perform a similar body. the portuguese indignados say the solution is to create more jobs
and cut unnecessary expenditure but the government was forced into seventy eight billion euro i.m.f. bailout earlier this year following in the footsteps of greece and ireland to paid back to have been introduced which will see longer working hours less holidays and even an end to the christmas bonuses which most workers enjoyed at the age when you are meant to start your life so you have your own space your own. type of kids. if you can you can't do it. you can't do that because you can't do it and. the system and the political system that is intertwined with the financial system we've got. this completely twisted conditions. this this to me. personally the biggest thing and does the crisis grows so
too do the ranks of the outraged members of the indignados people you know i forget . the. democratic. national governments. will be better. off the rise. of the call for global direction or looked over the fifteenth from the occupy wall street movement in new york is expected to get a loud response in portugal but for many of those who will fill the streets here it's not so much about revolution as it is about turning it into a simple fight for survival it even goes. sixteen minutes past the hour. otherwise it's one of the most inhospitable places with. continental winters in the arctic ocean for centuries. was considered
