1:14 am
optimists gather together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very much committed to their fight against income inequality and against corporate influence on us politics but what also for me was the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw that might be pushing optimus to the ground a lot of us feel disillusioned and got to put down like we can't there's nowhere to go. there's no recourse that isn't violent you know they are the violent ones they're putting us in a position of violence and they're acting violently against us which i don't like. as much disruption as we could you know to show people that we're still iran and that the measure is just in the same way you know there is still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away with power you know with the political game such genealogies because you don't see us here every day doesn't mean that we're not here it's actually something that
1:15 am
gives me a lot of hope personally and something that makes me feel hopeful for the future to see all these people involved and everybody down here now all summer criticize this movement as not going beyond civil disobedience are chanting more yelling and still very clear that the frustrations that ignited this movement are still very much alive where it will go from here only time will tell but it will be interesting to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the u.s. presidential election that is just seven weeks away the activists i spoke with throughout monday say they are committed committed to this movement and will be doing everything they can even if it means to civil disobedience to cause a change in their system that they believe does not have on behalf of ninety nine percent of the country reporting from new york bring up or not party. anti-war
1:16 am
activist and u.s. marine veteran jail i am says the occupy movements message paints a true picture of america's financial inequality. truly has been a phenomenal success and it's just a national problem for station to focus on the national not the sins committed against this country you know there is this solution between corporations and politicians. and occupy wall street just reminding people that the main problems a. year ago. has gotten worse now just as the needs of the federal reserve has announced for error you know so the clothier of the united states well connected interests and back stairs is. the chance to ask now not sold out is its own size and patrick the detection of some of the maybe i'll have a little discipline tree. interest some of those not at the same people that sold

up the will. and soldiers. of the shins got barrow and old the rest of us. extreme cleanser to say have a wall street not here are. going strong here. i just asked him the consensus. to pass largest corporations have had to put their operations on hold in china due to fear is anti japanese protests triggered by territorial ted a tad slammed tokyo for buying disputed islands from a private owner while the us and hearing the phrase a with plans to build a second anti-missile raider on japanese soil stephen clemence from the atlantic magazine believes countries are now testing the water before making bigger moves in the future. when we have both sides doing is probing weaknesses of the other china
1:18 am
feels that it's due more respect and it's using issues like the islands issue or using. some skirmishes over japan just having consented to place another ballistic missile defense system is essentially to power squaring off and while this looks like china japan and there certainly deep historical grievances this is really about china testing the united states and its alliance with japan and to some degree i expect these kind of skirmishes to continue for a long time be the it's games of brinksmanship it will continue to look tense and dense and dense and then you'll have moments of real. so what we're seeing today is a snapshot of what we're going to see for the next decade or more they say that that is not designed to essentially confront china but it's also designed to said the signal that asia and the asian century and economics and commerce in the region and the growth of china matter and that the united states is not going to withdraw from that region so it's trying to sell the point that its strategic footprint in asia will remain where it is if not grow larger while at the same time you know
1:19 am
these wars that we've been having in the middle east will shrink by that but to be just bottom line is we don't know whether the rise of china is going to lead to conflict between the united states and china and its allies or whether it will be managed and it will have both cooperation and confrontation that are essentially managed we don't have a hot war but but this translates just like it used to be in the cold war with the soviets and the united states were often times the way to achieve peace is the way to achieve the term is to determine success and to a stronger posture and i think that's a day but debatable view but that's at least the way japan and china are positioning themselves today. well i have many more stories for you that are t.v. dot com here's a look at what you can find there right now. health over security find out why the kind of arsenal full body scanners are to be banned from airports. and how the super rich are getting richer but the only slightly return getting poorer i've read
