at least five hundred activists of occupy wall street were walking through a lower manhattan to show their solidarity with the protesters from oakland california as it is that massive group was walking through manhattan and there were helicopters flying overhead we saw riot police come out. and wrist stream of police officers and cars following the group around there were some scenes of police officers arresting some out to a senate some point taking them down to the ground this is six weeks in to a movement and that his whirlwind are larger and louder not just in new york city across the entire country in the past day or so we have seen a huge crackdown now in atlanta an occupy demonstration took place at least fifty to this were arrested there but it was an opening in california that the scenes
many say looked like something of an urban more so and odd the occupy out of this out there were at least three of the fifty of them got into clashes with the police and the police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowd trying to remove the optimus from a campground that they stablished two weeks ago in front of city hall at least ninety seven protesters who were arrested but we do know that there was one man shot in the face by rubber bullets and it was in a rocky war veteran by the name of scott olsen is a former marine two time iraq war veteran he is now in critical condition from what's being reported he was shot in the head by a police projectile and all right now he's in the hospital in critical condition he was in one of the many iraq war veteran south were peacefully participating in the occupy oakland well. march so far there's not much images or visuals or video to
come out of that showed any of the protesters tactic attacking the police officers and the police in oakland california new york city and throughout the country have been criticised for using brutal sure against activists that are just trying to exercise their freedom of speech. but correspondents have been at the heart of the protests you can log onto our twitter feed for their fresh firsthand updates. well since the protests started in september police in some countries have been accused of using excessive force the many videos on you tube showing sometimes brutal tactics it since emerged that american and british police officer it is have been pressuring the website's owners to remove them but civil liberty campaigner jim killer told r.t. it's for the courts to decide what can or can't go online it appears that actually what's happening is that the google own policy is to remove this sort of content
which i think i think actually points to corporate censorship rather than government censorship they should be waiting for the government to ask the court whether this material ought to be taken down on you tube is a public platform to use and it is wrong for google to start making most judgments with i. the appearance of a court there is a framework for that it's called the rule of law or if you just say well let's have corporate entities deciding what should or shouldn't be on the web and you have in fact effectively vigilante justice operated by corporate entities and that's wrong . on our website we have plenty more on the story including news of a digital help for demonstrators a new application for android phones called i'm getting arrested or is friends and family of protesters and. check out the details that are to dot com. now european banks will write off fifty percent of greek debt the deal was reached
during an emergency summit in brussels which continued well into the night among other measures the euro zone and i.m.f. or gave the countries another one hundred billion euros in rescue there is also an agreement on expanding the bailout fund one trillion euro all that follows immense pressure on leaders after multiple delays in crisis action and promises obvious solution well for more what's been decided in brussels where joined now by francis loan managing director at holdings thank you for joining us here in our midst of the now you were there in hong kong to launch airiness possible role in the us in a moment but this deal agreed in brussels first of all european commission. also described it as a very solid way forward do you agree with that. well is there a way forward but the plan detail in who's going to pay because you're talking
about one trillion euros and this is a lot of money even have right now doesn't have the money. you would pay and central bank has the money i guess not we are talking about leveraging the european financial stability fund and to the countries like china. or india or even brazil to lend to the ability to fund it with a guarantee of a very european central bank so i think i think this is what they want to do not by printing money they want to use. this but believed to be defined as a vehicle to borrow money from outside to to finance that deficit of the countries and i think. even those that. are still right now.
because of my deal will come from of course france's nicolas sarkozy described the deal as a credible and ambitious response to the debt crisis then he says he plans to turn to shiner for help if the deal is so credible why then also supports. that does exactly because i actually see it was his central bank to actually printing money to print more euros so that daycare tie over greece and the french commercial banks would not have to write something like one hundred hundred billion dollars in loan to greece but. i think germany effectively mito that money printing process now they have to find real money real money doesn't exist in many. yes of the world china has about three trillion
u.s. dollars if. they are looking at that they. they want to persuade china to pay a leading world saver you wrote that the e.u. has been trying to deal with this deepening crisis for about two years now and of course you have this we've seen so far haven't really proved effective as they do you think china will get involved at this stage. i don't think so. i think the plan from the e.u. is china not to be the lender of last resort so when they run out of money they. go to china and say please give us some of your family change really serves to try to to solve the problem but i just felt that china should play that kind of lender of last resort role i think that that kind of roche are being played by germany and france and the e.u. is self so if you don't have money then sell your s.s. to raise the money or prevent already some bad like the americans do so
what china would do i think they've really been ruled by a token amount of. your peers the brilliant the fun but david we frame for playing a leading role because. this is what you'll be in the leadership that if china though did play a role of some sort as you say what would it get in return. well i think mainly political left share of political influence i think. when you look around the world both europe and america in deep financial trouble china is the one country that not in financial trouble and has a very big change so i think china can use the money and the politico connection and political influence with. you know being you. in future in foreign policy you. china is.
ok for us and when the managing director and seeing holdings thank you for joining us here on r.t. . and whether they e.u. crisis plan is effective or not for the a sturdy hit to greek people any help appears to be a long way off when you're finding new ways to survive in hard times as artsy sarah furthur ports. they say that time is money for a country where cash is now in short supply time has taken on a whole different value the time bank quick change want to services sometimes they give a painting lessons for free but they take you for free also somebody else is teaching yoga the time banks just one of a growing number of service swapping alternatives that are providing people in greece another way to cope with the tough economic conditions services can include anything from language classes to babysitting all him kids' meals huge huge
everything we do without money like looking after people are making things by ourselves for a country in crisis building social unity cam prefix stream a harness crisis is a terrible thing it be creates fear it divides people from public sector workers from private sector workers who divide richer workers to poor workers immigrant workers from home workers and that's a terrible thing. for the party networks have been a great way of bringing together large groups of people the populace slogan here in greece now is no one's alone in the crisis organizations are arranging swap shops to exchange clothes one town in greece is even started saying bharti currency we still have the memory of. agricultural society in greece where people used to do things together like they would do the olive tree of my family this week and then
next week we do the olive trees of your family and then the next week of the other neighbor so they would exchange services and they like that nicky gives me and her friend alexandra he's also a member of the time bank and lesson one of the free services she provides ellen exchange alexandra helps out with the gardening so the time is repaid it's an amazing way. of receiving finally by giving to the other. many greeks struggle with wage cuts tax increases and with unemployment in the country now cripplingly high there's been huge interest in the time banks and bars and networks places in aladdin's cave of materials they wonder really that this idea of swapping gets in services has proven so popular it's building solidarity as a time when the economic situation is extremely uncertain. networks won't
solve greece's financial problems they do provide a massive amount of support the participants it's not to respond to you cannot make crisis in the sense that it's going to overturn the gulf but it's giving support to comfort to both like to overturn the terrible economic policies that are being posed by the troika it's giving people support to feel that they can do something. with the tough economic times leaving many greeks feeling worthless there is real value in projects like the time bank with the greek government drowning in debt these creative solutions are offering any support but encouragement to the people here which is a time of deep recession uprooting priceless commodity surf r.t. athens. about fifteen minutes time. look closely at the way greeks are
venting their anger plight. greece a failed state. and i want to answer that from ryan granny in this image here you see right granny well i think she's saying no greece is not a failed state it's an occupied state because they're not asking this question about iceland are they now know because iceland stood up to the bankers whereas greece is still being subjugated by the tyranny of the bankers and there's granny here who you see throwing rocks at the police she's a good emblem for what the cops store for them and the politicians are greece as the things heat up in greece hopefully the banks in greece will completely collapse and this will be the only saving grace for greek sovereignty. the family of code. for the air strike on his convoy and that to his violent death
at the hands of m.t.c. fighters the firing lawyer said that the alliance his actions were clearly aimed at overthrowing the colonel and not protecting civilians even with gadhafi gone the country's future looks far from secure from tripoli and he said no way since this report. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover armor in libya their number one fear where thought to hold ground to air which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through made so our nato allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite a world country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in its possession and those light weapons are becoming a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of
former rebels for security they would try to control the bends i mean if there is somebody who has weapon we ask him if he has a third is a shoo in for this we are not. talking the. checkpoints have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national transition committee to return their arms the question now is what if they don't and what does that mean up for pulse gadhafi in libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only word thing that you will make some mechanics of how to give back the weapons but we see something very different i asked the head commander what the plan is to disarm the population that have to be i swear i don't know. what. the select the internet is just at the
home of the c.d.i. men who were in the path of manhood and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we're showing. it with you these are the weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down i want to walk in tripoli and you'll see why has many firearms. so you know how many weapons there are in libya i can dislike have to eventually yeah i think everybody have a weapon some think the front of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadhafi post results chaos group find out this just rattled power. what you have now in libya is schools of armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect for mates or actually either they've opportunistically used mate so to achieve some aims and
nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is the intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions which have overthrown but the gadhafi regime with many libyans are not yet ready to say a farewell to arms at the end of the sea which could only be gadhafi with nato how is now asking the alliance to continue with mission of indication of just how unstable the country is and he said no way our teeth crippled. pepe escobar a columnist and a correspondent for the asia times thinks the outlook for the country is bleak and sees comparisons between what happened in set with events in iraq seven years ago. lou jet at the end of two thousand and four you know colbert two thousand and eleven what the marines did which was to destroy the norther to say that they need to did to see what didn't do when people say no he's going to.
need to end it here and see the civil war in libya it's already are they will never set up a government because they're militias fighting against militias so what i predict is plunder of libyan resources nato running libya as a kind of protectorate puppet government how many cars i style you know in. tripoli and civil war all over the place or remember you can log on to our website to find out all the latest news and analysis on the pier and much more besides so you can check out our cartoon gallery to get a fresh take on serious issues from the time go to the online exclusive section on the site that's an r.t. dot com of course.
