been dubbed by the occupy wall street movement here the scene of a tense standoff between city officials and protesters early on friday morning more than twenty uniformed police officers and fire department officials answered the encampments and demanded that the protesters turn over anything that may be considered a fire hazard citing safety concerns but all it will ever work on an old. point zero zero zero zero in the end approximately six generators power generators were seized by the police and several dozen canisters of fuel including a vegetable oil for cooking now preventing fires is of course a very reasonable concern when you're dealing with a densely packed ten city such as what occupy wall street or cody park has become but at the same time a lot of people here feel that this is also a convenient way for the city to essentially crackdown on the movements in a sort of backhanded manner as temperatures continue to plummet into freezing freezing degrees in fact the first snow fall is expected here and that could be the
10:02 pm
focus of coding hard over the weekend so a lot of protests are still that this is perhaps some sort of way for the city to freeze them out to try to dampen their results remain here no downtown new york security park was of course the scene of the original occupy wall street demonstration which started on september seventeenth and since then it's expired inspired similar movements all across the country in the world in fact from tokyo to chill wrong to as protesters continue to turn out into the streets protesting against economic inequality and what they say is corporate greed you know one of the chances you frequently hear here in the united states is we are the ninety nine percent a reference to the ninety nine percent of americans who are not in the same sort of economic beneficiary condition at the top one percent earners now this is a reference in fact to one of the recent economic reports that came out here in the u.s. citing that the top one percent of earners in the united states one adjusted for inflation and postdocs is actually solve their earnings. for
10:03 pm
a by an astounding two hundred and seventy five percent from one thousand nine hundred seventy nine to two thousand and seven further perpetrating this economic inequality and social inequality that a lot of people are simply not up with here in the united states of course artie's lucy coffee is following the developments of the occupy wall street protest on her twitter page get the latest and quickest updates. meanwhile the iraq war veteran who suffered serious head injuries during a police crackdown on protesters in oakland is awaiting surgery doctors say scott olsen is condition has improved but there's still a threat to his health the incident has sent shock waves across america with some war veterans saying police brutality violates basic human rights it's a peaceful protest and scott wasn't doing anything and it just blows my mind that his first amendment rights are just being violated that's why this event has been kind of a catalyst to a lot of change it make it's making a lot of people pay attention to the movement and we can only hope that this
10:04 pm
tragedy has brought light to the movement and i think scott will want people to be able to understand more about what we were like oh my initial reaction especially video that i had. was shock and disbelief scott olsen you know a patriot to this country and you know decided to go out and stand up for the people he chose to protect in iraq so to see you know the police had no disregard for him or his uniform was shocking you know unbelievable. it is thought colonel gadhafi is most influential son saif al islam has fled to and is looking to hand him over to the war crimes court prosecutors say that they are in talks to bring him in but what's keeping western leaders nervous is that safe could then spill the beans on the recent dodgy deals that they've made with his father ivor bennett explains. to some moammar gadhafi was a man too much secrets which will supposedly be buried with him i
10:05 pm
think that there were tremendous sighs of relief all over capitals in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french but also the british and the italians and to a certain extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any reason and i am not mostly just that surprised that he was captured alive if you very quickly ended up dead daffy's return from diplomatic exile was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him good that he's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried i don't feel as though his gritty. but the. dealing with him is constant and it. will go way
10:06 pm
over seriously because that this is also the situation was sufficient probably grew up there ironically it lead to a situation where big givers who were prove their innocence then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in get to effie's rehabilitation bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven that play didn't lead empty handed trade between them flourished so did the cozy relationship there was six more secret meetings off to play left off base his people denying they were about releasing them look the boma abdel baset al mcgraw he or britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret myself enormously that gadhafi was but should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial and force to all it's a question through all the terrible things he did and if it davidge the contemporary world leaders or previous regimes leaders tough. we need to know. what he's done. with. some details of the murky dealings have already emerged
10:07 pm
claiming the reputation of one of britain's leading universities the london school of economics agreed a contract to get out the regime worth over two million pounds to educate hundreds of its future civil servants the director was forced to resign and now the university of tripoli is demanding the money back french leader nicolas sarkozy was never shy and greeting get daffy even letting him pitches tend to nearly say palace at parentline bankrolling sarkozy's path to the presidency so says this man the one who could still tell all that cause he had never had sarkozy must give back the money he took from libya to finance his electoral campaign we funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal everything. saif al islam gadhafi son and key right hand man reportedly ready to surrender to the war crimes court saif
10:08 pm
is going to have low information on now i think we're sorry if that tony blair intervened form to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics one. degree or apparently was plagiarized there's a lot of things that have gone on so you feel gadhafi knows about saif gadhafi is wanted to answer for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control but it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father is keeping the western power players sweating after bennett r.t. london. syrian opposition activists are urging protesters to rally for a no fly zone over the country thirty seven people were reportedly killed by security forces in friday's anti-government protests with u.n. figures suggesting over three thousand have died since troubles began seven months ago john graham a former diplomat at the u.s. embassy in libya believes the demands for a no fly zone are just a pretext for military intervention. they're not asking for a no fly zone or
10:09 pm
a reality any more than they were in libya they're asking for close air support because of a terribly different thing we all know what happened in libya we were nato in there to institute a no fly zone to protect civilians and very quickly within days the new should became one of regime change so when people call for a no fly zone in syria they're really calling for close air support as you know the syrian assad is not using his warplanes to kill the protesters he's using his army or some help from helicopters so what we work what might work in syria would be close air support which is a much more dodgy thing and it's much more difficult it's much more sophisticated and in many more and there are many reasons why it won't come to that and one of the biggest is sheer geography syria of course is a much more a nice country it is far smaller and so the possibility of civilian casualties in syria is enormously greater than it was in libya and that must be
10:10 pm
a serious concern for anyone thinking of music to to get of of lives. german chancellor angela merkel has told her party members it may take years to overcome the sovereign debt crisis in europe this echoes the french president's words after an emergency meeting in brussels where he said that letting greece join the euro was a mistake e.u. leaders decided on thursday to have greece's private sector debt to one hundred billion euros after banks agreed to write off fifty percent of what they are owed european banks must also have a bigger cash pile to guard against another crisis while the emergency bailout fund will be expanded to one trillion euros to hit that mark europe's hoping to attract investment from asia the bailout fund chief has been to china to persuade to beijing to contribute although officials there don't seem too keen one political scientist in paris told us that is because you're still in too much of a mess. if greece goes now i mean in economically greece is
10:11 pm
a very small country it's only two point five percent of the hanuman's are so europe could survive without greece but in terms of symbols it would be a disaster so they want to agree to keep greece within the euro zone and within europe but europe instead decided it's still short sighted because there's still a stereotype programs for everyone and it's not going to solve the crisis in the long term if you ask the chinese to save europe or you are the chinese to become the new financial gain money power so this is something very serious and the whole thing the pats upon not letting the central bank in europe function as a central bank the way it does in the u.s. in japan or even in britain so you've got all this you're not you don't have a central bank that can tell the markets we are in power we make decisions and at the same time you have a stereotype program so it's
10:12 pm
a very very bad recipe and asking china to help your first i don't think the chinese will do it with a treaty they're not going to throw good money after bad to save europe just because they love europe if the chinese helped it would be. good for their own event huge. well it has taken six years of refurbishment delays drama and scandal but moscow's legendary bolshoi theatre has finally bounced back into the limelight nearly two thousand people took their seats for an exclusive performance many more gathered outside to take a look as well r.t. sara for us was among. no one was going to miss out on the excitement of the ground . and they were able to watch the performances pull cost on to you big screen so everyone come outside to watch that everything marking a spectacular and well it's been a simply magical evening made all the most special of course because everyone was able to be involved it was sourced huge amount of people finding out we were
