welcome it's one am early sunday morning here in moscow my name is kevin owen here at r.t. international in our top story u.s. police are upping their efforts against the occupy movement has been gripping the country for a second month in new york where the anti-corporate demonstrations began offices of literally leaving protesters out in the cold they've swept through zuccotti park where hundreds have been camping out confiscating power generators and gas canisters saying that a fire hazard thing is one seasonal snowstorm a city in the east coast right now these are the pictures of it the patella inches of snow are expected as temperatures hit subzero police are also being criticized meantime to cracking down on protesters elsewhere in the country in oakland california the mayor has been forced to apologize after demonstrators there latigo this week despite the violence the movement's picking up momentum even if this is an important how you vote for helping fill the protest of. america's armed pieces covered up. from tear gas. shot into the crowd by police. at
least ninety seven arrests in oakland california. on tuesday night. a twenty four year old marine and iraq war veteran scott olsen shot in the head by a police tear gas canister unable to even see his name through. a march of solidarity with the oakland protesters in new york leads to ten arrests . protestors slammed into the ground and netted by police earlier in another marine confronts police treatment of protesters and a video now gone viral on the web. you risk their lives for america now part of the uprising greens and others who serve the u.s. go public in their fight for the occupy wall street because let's find out what this means for them the fact that more and more military personnel are joining us
shows that they recognize that this is an american it's not about hippies in a negative stereotype thirty year old gary briggs has served in the national guard for the last two years he's spending his short be cation at occupy wall street does range from. maybe. yeah more the better the guardsman is outraged at the fact that marines are getting attacked at home but there should be fired up by. others here believe it won't be long however until the police join the crowds instead of restricting that people are. protesting they're going to work for years and they're going to see that there is zero but even if this doesn't happen the movement won't be scared to wait any time soon with marines and other military vets pledging to have the protesters back you. know. everybody has banded together and the rope that's being created here no sword will
cut an associate churkin archie he or. he was also they've been studying the root causes of why thousands of protests across the country he told me police crackdown on the demonstrations are only feeling anger against an unfair system but the bulk of the protestors are deeply committed to nonviolence which is extremely important and i think the police sometimes fail to recognize that when they attack nonviolent protesters it really exposes the the corruption of the system and the fact that the police also mostly are fielded to protect the one percent and not to protect the free speech rights of the rest of us that actually draws more support for the protest they are finally drawing attention to the fact that we have an economy actually it not only in the united states but in the world that is predominantly working for the for the one percent of people who control the financial system but it is not working for the ninety nine percent we've had so much conversation in the
united states fueled by corporate media focusing attention on the problem of obama or your problem is the government skipping over the fact that wall street has created the problem make those voters primarily making money for rich people through trying trying to be we have to address that issue you know people are complaining that the occupy wall street people don't have a clear demands that's actually quite clear what they want they want their economy back they want their government bapi want their future back and they actually want a country that operates by principles over true democracy and and real markets which which work for everyone. just a bit later tonight because the demonstrators in new york a chance to get their voices heard. these people are so greedy. by money and wealth and materialism and consumerism their half of us heads down to
occupied zuccotti park in the big apple for artsy protesters for their message to wall street also germany's multicultural melting pot boils over as immigration anger drives a deepening divide through communities r.t. reports. and attack by army deserters and serious reportedly left seventeen soldiers dead according to human rights groups it comes after the arab league condemned vick until new in killings of civilians in the country and the region protests the arab ministerial committee to hold another round of talks with syrian officials over the weekend to help end the crisis you estimate three thousand people have been killed since march from the uprising against president bashar assad to get some of the protesters have also been calling for a no fly zone over the country add aerial support from nato warplanes distant syrian writer and democracy campaigner michel kilo told our most of the population doesn't support foreign intervention. or against military intervention what does it say to morrow or in ten years time even if the regime was to ny late every one of
us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't want to add external slavery to our domestic one we don't want it to become a part of the struggle between the international and internal forces syrians are peaceful they want to progress under conditions of freedom and development and they don't want to turn into a concentration camp polygon for larger countries. but brian becker from the u.s. based coalition and so believes that unlike libya syria is too strong for the alliance to intervene that's why the west wants to spark a civil war to bring regime change. for using the same lingo the same scenario the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with the advance with the support would be intervention through multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is
look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like go a way to defend civilians it's really a way to begin the war could begin military operations against the syrian air force or air defenses i think the first and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human material for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin a civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change thousands of israelis to buy the
economic justice of fill the streets of tel aviv once again after having a two month break there on how he would have the government spending their money in the what next year's budget said back to the drawing board of his pull a sleazy television. the last demonstration back in september in early september so a million people come to the streets in the country organizers was satisfied with their turnout and after that a lot of the protesters many of them are university students returned to classes and things that didn't take a little bit of it out but said he now what we have seen in the last few hours is not any attention on what is happening internally here should be israeli air force has also you know and strikes on southern gaza eleven people have been killed five of them who are members of the islamic jihad organization that is what holds a sponsible for a grad missile that was fired into israel earlier in the week be concern here though talking to people is that this story of social demonstrations will not be
missed by many in the international community as it focuses on what is happening externally and certainly the mainstream international media is making a lot of what is going on in gaza to the detriment of what is happening here and with me to talk about this is nicholas simmons who is one of the protestors nicolette why are you back on the streets after a lot. knesset the parliament is returning from his recess tomorrow that the day after i mean. we just heard that they'll reconsider their budgetary considerations and the problem has been that the budget considerations have been about parties and politics there's been a valid raising of the tide to control everything we want the budgetary considerations to consider just the general good of the country here in israel it's very very important to realize we are not in economic recession or problem isn't that we don't have enough money problems that is being mismanaged the government decisions about what to do the money is bad but the loads that for thirty
when you hear the cries of people here and we need a slogan is the people demand of social justice people here saying that they got on the consumer wanted ones to detract attention but they certainly will not give up on what they say are very legitimate demands. committee's correspondent paula slayer a massive financial pyramid scheme which wiped out millions of people's life savings in russia back in one hundred ninety s. is back its eccentric founder served time for his dodgy accounting then but now same as in ukraine a queuing up to hand over their cash to electorate jeff skilling's place of it. the twenty eleven russian hit movie the pyramid depicts a robin hood of the ninety nine g.'s a businessman who promises wealth for dinner people and confronts the oligarchs. the real story behind the sports was a sad episode in russia's supposed soviet history a financial pyramid called attracted millions vowing to multiply their investments
many times in the end it went bust up to fifteen million people lost their life savings. i don't feel like i'm a sinner what about m.m.m. ninety four it was undermined by the government so i knew him in full emerged with virtually unlimited resources absolutely i'm controlled so the situation was not acceptable and everything was done to eliminate it said a game of rudy at the driving force behind the m.m.m. movement spent five years in prison for fraud but now the man often called the russian bernie madoff is back seventeen years i notice a pyramid had. thirty i'm already in the back with another financial thing and while you could hardly find any commercial enterprise the streets of ukraine cities have been literally flooded with the calls to join in with the m.m.m. twenty eleven. we can do more is the slogan of the new complain of rudy admits
it is another pyramid and is a risky venture but still promises people that they will make money this. is a virtual currency called dollars which constantly goes up in price from twenty to sixty percent a month this price only i can see it some individuals exchange money between themselves without any obligations going teasin conditions there's a fundamental point when there's no legal entity new joint account new office in other words everything shared between millions of private accounts means no one can put an end to it. financial experts in ukraine see little surprise in my body's latest scheme given the rough patch the country is going through the national bank is like you know order to knock the depreciation of national currency is like introducing in your restrictions and then other people. the standard the government machine the bureaucracy is again something like a minister told the press in the financial markets and people are looking for an
exit not he claims his actions are legal ukraine's politicians disagree the ruling party wants current laws tightened to block m.n. from making off with vulnerable people's nest eggs in. two thousand and eleven as a provision for a national services and requires a license providing financial services without a license as a criminal offense. m m m twenty eleven already has one point five million investors and counting. again convinced it is a road to riches try telling that to the many millions of victims left with nothing and still reeling from his previous ponzi. scheme see reporting from here in ukraine. further east the finances a look at equally flaky very different reasons as we report so. urgently needs to stop the rot right now it's the world's third largest economy but the year of disaster is left with an astonishing debt stories coming up shortly. germany's on
a damage limitation drive to try to curb a rise a near naziism a nationalist groups during decades of the now defunct multi culti policy and what the country tried to united's ethnic communities more of for small part and voters eyes are now turning towards hardline right wing parties as artists on by reports the worry is that the cultural divide could violently society. what do these two very different pieces of music have in common and they're both performed in germany and they increasingly represent clashing forms of society here we want the immigrants germany just the illegal ones yes and after the other cover story that's the view of the national democratic party or n.p.t. here in germany they've supported many concepts attended by right wing supporters
of their opponents argue they promote hatred they achieve that in some regions in east germany than you have no immigrants. it's not because of economy reasons but it's because nobody wants needed to go there because it's there always threatened one anti nazi group recently managed to do right wing concert goers into wearing their bogus t. shirts when they were washed the right wing slogan dissolved to reveal a message urging the wearer to leave the near nazi group. however german police intelligence estimates that there are eight to ten thousand hard core militant neo nazis in the country those behind the systems say that those numbers mean germany's problem is in the top three in europe every year in germany statistically you have about fifteen thousand twenty thousand hate crimes. of them about eight hundred
violent crimes so that's also within the top five in europe when we put accusations of inciting hatred to the n.p.t. yes they were unmoved germany is the state of the germans but if you are today you have parts in berlin with more than thirty forty percent of foreign us when it's just too much germany has large ethnic minority populations from turkey the arab world and beyond and many families now have second and third generation members with german citizenship and they're gaining political representatives who defy anyone who says they don't belong here then pedia or other party is could could not just say to me or take this part of me to be german whereas most political parties are now finding candidates from the ethnic groups they represent those on the right are posting up banners and slogans or the message go back where you came from with such
a political divide the potential is there for german politics to become a lot nastier it's not immediately obvious that this fruit and vegetable store is at the edge of the turkish district in berlin it looks much like a fruit and vegetable stall elsewhere in the city but the question being fought over in political debates is will this region become a route for cultural exchange or a border between essentially foreign territories tom watson r.t. . they said around the world no one taken some news in brief disturbing violence in south sudan where a suspected rebel attacks killed seventy five people officials say it was a strike on an oil rich province there most of the fatalities were rebel fighters but fifteen civilians also died so sudan has been plagued by tribal violence since it began declaring autonomy from sudan in two thousand and five around three thousand people thought to have been killed in the country this year alone. the biggest series of insurgent attacks in afghanistan in one incident seventeen people

clouds are gathering of the land of the rising sun with japan lurching worryingly towards a financial crisis the country's one of the huge national debt is it struggles to try to recover from a shit earthquake and tsunami disaster so to come out soon looks next to her japan's dire circumstances leaving it trapped and teetering on the edge. thanks in many ways the japanese economy is like this fish caught dried out frozen and now having a great chance of value sliced clean up. take the industry itself japanese sushi shops raking in about seventeen billion dollars annually with hungry customers consuming nine million tonnes of sisterhood along the way. it's an addiction repeated all around the world but it's not helping the main exporters which has a left floundering. japanese food is the most popular food in the world and
definitely i think there are many other companies like ours doing the same business and everywhere else in these companies are suffering major consequences from a strong. when the national currency is up it pushes exports down japanese goods just too expensive to compete on the wild stage and its profits disappear so do people's livelihoods stagnant growth the strong yen and the massive national debt some economists korea japan maybe all of your years away from its own major economic crisis and says this east asian nation remains the world's number three economy the consequences of the big blow bob this is something japan's political leaders are determined to avoid and many are calling for urgent action. japanese industry can probably enjoy the current seventy five year into the dollar
level for a little while but if this situation doesn't change over a longer period i think we're going to see japanese factories and large companies move their operations overseas places like vietnam thailand or china and it would lead to a hollowing out of japanese domestic industry and creates unemployment japan is facing an extraordinary economic crisis. that this pipe the worries of ruling party lawmakers it is not clear there is anything the japanese government can really do to prevent a soaring from leaving japanese businessman. money. in japan going in supply industries were actually losing its ability to sell their products in machines just aren't selling since the world faces these conditions japanese companies have to look for whatever opportunities they can discover but that's not going to be easy in a country where the government itself is the plea in the red japan has the highest
national debt among major economies owing almost twice as much as the economy makes in an entire year couple that with the funds needed to rebuild after the devastation and leached by the earthquake and tsunami earlier this year and it seems japan is fighting a battle it may not be able to win she horrific martz's r.t. tokyo troubling times and. thousands continue to protest across america as part of the anti corporate occupy movement the mainstream media the pains to point out there's a lack of a unified agenda for this return the world all started in new york to discover that every demonstrator has a special something to say to wall street. the protesters of occupy wall street are clearly bad up with wall street and with washington so what do you think they would have to say to their would be oppressors
this week let's talk about that i would like to say on your human beings also do you see the suffering that people are going through you know what it's like we want the health insurance that you have everybody should have that health insurance we should have the basic rights in the basic care care of we the people more than your banker we need you to join us because they're just people to be an us versus them we need your help for personhood what is that and corporations that are have felt as though it's ok to exploit people and exploit the planet for profit and profit alone so what do you have to say to those corporations well i don't have to say anything other than i don't support how do you say the fair share to someone or something that does not know what kind of concept this is andrew qadi we practice we're a community where we share our resources these people are so greedy and so
by money and wealth and materialism and consumerism you still have a mass for all these corporate bigwigs who are taking millions and not supporting if you follow my messages incident my message is to make sure that these soldiers that are here and they continue to believe that this conversation is important and that these people are involved in a process constructing a role where dreams are possible right now dreams are impossible in america for a lot of people these people need to believe that dreams must continue that's why we're here so it seems like the bottom line is the protesters are less interested in talking to wall streeters and washington times that out and more interested in keeping the conversation and the power among the people themselves. this is. the issue. be on this trial i had lined up they have before that just a couple of minutes i'm kevin now in thanks for watching us.
