Transcript by Newsy BY JONATHAN KETZ You're watching multisource global video news analysis from Newsy. After more than a week of protesting - it turns out Egypt isn’t the only country mad at its government. A Russian group demanding the right to protest in the nation’s capital... can now do just that... on February 12th. A Russian protest has been granted by the government in a Moscow central square near the Kremlin. This after many unsanctioned protests like this one near the town’s city hall. (Video from RT) We’re following coverage from BBC, RT, Ria Novosti, The Moscow Times, and One India. The protest is called ‘The Day of Rage,’ led by the socialist organization ‘Left Front,’ who originally wanted it to rally in front of President Dmitri Medvedev’s office, one of the targets in the people’s uproar. However, reports from RT say Medvedev’s already shot that down. (Video from BBC) Friday it reported, quote, “...the mayor’s office did not allow a march from the square to the presidential office saying this will obstruct traffic.” The Russian government shutting down unsanctioned protests is nothing new. The state-run ‘Ria Novosti’ newspaper...made sure to let its readers know of an illegal protest this past Monday. Novosti reported, “The Other Russian opposition party plans to hold an unsanctioned protest in downtown Moscow on Monday despite recent police searches and arrests...” The protest’s leader, Eduard Limonov was arrested Monday. That report by the way...came out the exact same day the protest was supposed to go down. Other media outlets haven’t been so nice about the banned protests and state of the Russian economy. A column in The Moscow Times reads, “...why is it that Russians are not going into the streets more often and revolting against the powers that be.” Russians will definitely be taking to the streets on Saturday. RT says up to 500 protesters are expected to show. But if more than that go, Russian Police may intervene. That’s what happened at a recent sanctioned protest. (Video from BBC) One India reported, “Moscow’s Helsinki Group head ... requested a 1,500-strong rally but authorities allowed only 1,000 rights activists.” Despite the latest protests though...the BBC’S Charles Sanctuary says these protests don’t represent how most Russians feel. “The polls show that Mr. Putin and the president remain popular.” And despite the planned protests - Russia’s Pravda reports President Medvedev’s approval rating stands at 69 percent -- and Prime Minister Putin’s at 72 percent.

BY SAMUEL JOSEPH You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Twenty-four dead. And it may not be over. As the so-called “Days of Rage” spread across the Middle East, they are met with different responses. In Libya, long ruled by dictator Muammar Gaddafi, it was out-and-out violence. CAROLINE MALONE: “Sources suggest Libyan security forces shot and killed demonstrators. Some of the worst casualty numbers were reported in the city of Beida, where according to Human Rights Watch, hospital staff put out the call for additional help as they became overwhelmed with injuries.” And that’s not all. Channel 4 News spoke with a nurse in a Libyan hospital who says not even the hospital zones are safe. “...last night, armed men, wearing ‘military or police’ uniforms, which the nurse had ‘not seen before’ entered the hospital at around 2am, and carried away three patients who were involved and injured in the protest...” And unlike the protests in Egypt that successfully ousted that country’s president - BBC says Gaddafi enjoys more support in Libya -- at least in the capitol. BENJAMIN BARBER: “The fact is in Libya, in Tripoli, where Colonel Gaddafi and his family are most of the time, there isn’t anything like the anti-Gadhafi feeling that you get in Benghazi 2,000 kilometers away over east towards Egypt where the rival clans, for 25 or 30 years, have seen Gadhafi as a tribal enemy and trying to make trouble for him.” And Human Events suggests - also unlike the Egyptian protesters - Libya’s opposition isn’t likely to see much U.S. backing. “...Libya’s demonstrators can’t count on much support from the Obama Administration... The Libyan people are going to have to display some real progress against the Qaddafi regime before President Obama will suddenly declare he’s been 100% behind them all along...” Rallies renewed Friday after the funerals for the protesters who died. So far it is unknown if there have been any further deaths. 'Like Newsy' on Facebook for daily updates. Get more multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy

BY SAMANTHA MCCLENDON Anchor: Jennifer Meckles You're watching multisource business news analysis from Newsy (Fox News) “There is a real and growing concern about a possible revolt in Saudi Arabia. And that folks could be a game changer.” A Facebook page created for Saudi Arabia calls for quote- “A Day of Rage” on March 11. The page demands the release of political prisoners, more rights for women, and more. (International Business Times) A columnist tells Fox News about what protests in Saudi Arabia could mean for the United States. CHARLES KRUTHAMMER: “You get a major eruption on March 11, all Hell is breaking loose because Saudi Arabia is the prize, it’s the treasure, it’s the gold at the end of the rainbow. it’s everything for the world economy. Then you have to think of Western intervention.” Western intervention? That could be the case. Saudi Arabia is the world’s top oil producer, but as production from other oil-rich countries in the region grows more uncertain, the Saudis have stepped up to meet demand. The Sydney Morning Herald Reports... “It is believed that the Saudi state oil company had increased its output to more than 9 million barrels per day - a rise of more than 700,000 barrels. The worsening situation in Libya has led to a loss of about 1.2 million barrels out of its 1.6 million barrels of daily output." And a writer for USA Today explains how turmoil in Saudi Arabia could hit international pocketbooks. “If political unrest in Libya spreads to other oil-rich countries [such as Saudi Arabia] and the ensuing chaos disrupts crude oil production, gas prices could hit $5 a gallon by peak summer driving season, industry analysts say.” World Threats says over 400 people are involved on the Facebook page, but there’s no guarantee anything will get off the ground. “ is unknown how many of them are actually inside Saudi Arabia. In addition, there is deep skepticism about the ability to organize such an event given the theocratic rule of the Royal Family.” So if gas prices were to hit 5 dollars a gallon, would you support U.S. intervention in Saudi Arabia?

BY BRANDON TWICHELL AND ADNAN S. KHAN You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Shape up or ship out - that’s what Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is telling the his cabinet. The prime minister is giving the government ministers 100 days to end corruption or risk being fired. The ultimatum comes after Iraqi protesters took to the streets during the so-called “Day of Rage”. Iraqi citizens are demanding less government corruption, more jobs and better access to basic services and electricity. (Video: Al jazeera) Iraq’s Alsumaria seems to appreciate the changes the prime minister is making -- seeing it as an attempt to legitimately improve living standards and end corruption. “Al Maliki proposed to reduce retirement age from 63 to 61. The Iraqi Prime Minister called to dissolve the municipal council and to hold early provincial elections.” But NPR reports - the government is not getting the message. “Officials still seem unnerved. Last week, state TV launched a campaign suggesting protesters are loyalists of Saddam Hussein, or worse, terrorists. Journalists and intellectuals have been detained, interrogated, and beaten.” The speaker of Iraq’s Parliament is also taking action - calling for new elections in three months. A reporter for Al-Jazeera says - early elections would be a mixed bag. “Al-Nujaifi's comments are a sign that politicians in the country are taking notice of protests. However, al-Nujaifi is a member of the opposition, and it would also be two years early to replace provincial councils.” And the Voice of Russia commends how well the Iraqi government has handled the protest -- but adds the government still has a gun to its head. “If the government fails the real national revolution will begin. As we see, the Egyptian-Libyan scenario in Iraq has been postponed but not for good.” Maliki also says he will no longer be seeking a third term as Iraq’s prime minister.

BY BRANDON TWICHELL Anchor: Megan Murphy You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy It appears no Middle Eastern country is safe from protests. Minority Shiite Muslims in oil-rich eastern Saudi Arabia are protesting the government, calling for it to release political prisoners and to create more jobs. (Video: Press TV) The Saudi government says the protests go against Islamic law - and are therefore forbidden, but Link TV translates for an analyst on Iran’s Al Alam TV - who says, these protests in the Kingdom were bound to happen. “It is clear that the winds of change flowing through a number of Arab countries will not continue to blow without reaching a country that has resisted political and social changes, such as Saudi Arabia. This was reflected by the Saudi authorities dealing with protesters in the area of al-Qatif and the eastern cities, dominated by aspirations for freedom of expression and legal rights.” A reporter for CBC News witnessed the protests and says they are unlike protests in other Middle Eastern countries like Tunisia and Egypt, with only a few hundred demonstrators -- but the government seems wary. "There are no violent clashes, though police eventually forced the demonstrators to leave, pushing them down the street... In the last two days, large numbers of police have been seen in the cities where protests have been held, and checkpoints have been erected on the roads.” The Los Angeles Times explains one of the reasons why Shittes are protesting against a ruling Sunni monarchy. “Shiites in Saudi Arabia regularly complain about discrimination and say they still face restrictions in getting some jobs, although their situation has improved somewhat under King Abdullah and the reforms he has implemented. The government denies charges of such discrimination.” Protesters are also organizing through Facebook’s “Day of Rage” on March 11. London’s The Independent reports if Saudi Arabia decides to use violence against protesters, it could cause a major headache for the United States. “In Egypt, [President Obama] only supported the demonstrators after the police used unrestrained firepower against protesters. But in Saudi Arabia – supposedly a ‘key ally’ of the US and one of the world's principal oil producers – he will be loath to protect the innocent.” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY SHELLY YANG Wall Street’s looking a little different this weekend. More than 2,000 protesters from all over the country gathered in lower Manhattan to join the Occupy Wall Street Movement. “A protest on Wall Street. Police quickly set up barricades near the New York stock exchange after hearing about the protest plans on twitter. Some people called it the United States day of rage. According to organizers, the idea was to camp out for weeks, even months possibly as an expression of anger over the financial system they say favors the rich and powerful. At least two people were arrested. “ Most U.S. cable networks only briefly mentioned the event. And The Wall Street Journal had no coverage as of Sunday afternoon -- but Russian news outlet RT went in-depth. A protester told the network the group’s anger was targetted at Wall Street fat cats. “When the top 1% of wealth of this country controls political decisions, when the money that comes straight out of banks goes to bonuses instead of taking care of the problems we need and that same money goes to pay for politicians who make those decisions, people should be damn annoyed.” The Think Progress website concedes debates about the tactics and strategies behind an anti-Wall Street campaign might be warranted. It points out... “While many of the conservative defenders of Wall Street may be quick to portray protests ... as driven by envy of its wealth or far-left ideologies, the truth is that people have a very simple reason to be angry — because Wall Street’s actions made tens of millions of people dramatically poorer through no fault of their own.” The protest organizer AdBusters expects this campaign to be like the Tahrir Square moment of the Arab Spring. The site has a link to a live stream of the event on its website. But CNN questions about the impact. “CNN Money’s Julian Pepitone was in the middle of it today. She said it turned out felt way short of organizers’ expectations.” “The original call back in July from Adbusters magazine was for 90,000 people to show up, and a couple of weeks ago they kind of down say that asking for 20,000 people, but they certainly didn’t get that kind of turnout today.” But China’s Xinhua News Agency warns America that this is a warning sign. “The U.S. economy is so depressed at the moment and the employment rate keeps plummeting. If it can’t stop, it is not impossible for America to confront large-scale social unrest.” The protest organizers say they plan to occupy Wall Street for a couple months. But according to Bloomberg -- already -- on Day 2 -- their numbers had dwindled to a few hundred Sunday.

He just stood there bravely like the soldier he is exercising his first amendment right to OCCUPY!. Footage from the Occupy Oakland protest, October 25th, 2011. After protesters ran to the aid of a badly-injured person, Oakland Police deliberately lobbed a flash grenade into the crowd. Whatever you think of the Occupy movement, police behavior of this kind is criminal and should be prosecuted.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource video news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In U.S. news — officials have started gathering intel from the computers and documents seized from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound. They found Al Qaeda may have been planning a set of attacks on U.S. railroads. Bloomberg explains the officials’ response to the finding. “ has prompted them to issue advisories to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Union Pacific CFX, Amtrak, and other railroads about a possible attack on trains, perhaps on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Federal officials are still not convinced that the possible plot was anything more than talk between bin Laden and his cohorts.” Still on Osama bin Laden — news agencies are reporting Al Qaeda has now confirmed its leader’s death in a statement released on jihadist websites. (Graphic: NPR) The statement announces that bin Laden’s death will not be wasted. The terrorist organization also pledges to continue attacks on the U.S. and its allies. Also on U.S. news — April’s jobs report is released earlier today, and analysts say the numbers are at a five-year high. Here’s MSNBC. “244,000 jobs were added to the market. We were expecting 185,000. So about 30% higher than expected. The unemployment rate, however, ticked up to 9.0%. That is not surprising. If the jobs market is improving, then more people come back into the labor force to look for jobs and they become counted again. You know if you're not looking, you're not counted. On the whole, a very good number.” In world news — security forces have been deployed in the Syrian capital Damascus, as protesters take to the streets for another ‘day of rage.’ The protests and bloody crackdowns have been going on for almost 8 weeks now. Is the opposition getting stronger? Maybe not. Sky News explains. “I don’t think that the protesters themselves have got the power or the numbers to overthrow the government. Unless part of the army is going to crack and go over to the other side, it’s difficult to see anything other than continuing bloodshed, week after week.” In U.S. news -- South Carolina played host to a debate for five possible Republican candidates -- all hoping to defeat an incumbent president in 2012. But it was who -- wasn’t -- there that made headlines. KTTV explains. “There are challenges here for the GOP field -- name recognition, for one. Five of the better known likely candidates chose not to attend this debate. That's a risk, given the role South Carolina played in the nominating process, but it is a diverse field including two strong libertarians, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson and Texas Congressman Ron Paul.” Finally, in entertainment news -- Justin Bieber’s world tour appears to have been sabatoaged by his own crew. In what TMZ describes as “a mutiny,” Bieber’s crew refuses to head to their next destination -- Japan. ANCHOR 1: “We found out that there is a mutiny in Justin Bieber’s camp over whether the crew should go to Japan or not because of the nuclear radiation and earthquakes." ANCHOR 2: “A guy named Scooter, Justin’s manager actually had to be the tough guy.” ANCHOR 1: “But the best part is Scooter looked at the crew today and they refused to go and he says, ‘Man the ‘F’ up’, which I just love. “Man the ‘F’ up’. Would you go to Tokyo?” ANCHOR 2: “I would not.” (Video: TMZ) Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day.

BY JESSICA SIBERT You’re watching multisource global video news analysis from Newsy. The city of Rome really was burning on Saturday as a group of hooded protesters took to the streets with rocks, bottles, and fireworks in hand. Euronews has more. “What started off as a peaceful protest against government cutbacks and economic inequality has turned into rioting in the streets of Rome. Earlier in the day on Saturday, demonstrators gathered in the shadow of the coliseum to show their support started by movements by the ‘Indignados’ in Spain and the Americans in Occupy Wall Street. However, fears about a repeat of trouble and protests from last December have come true.” Part of the “Occupy Wall Street” protests that have spread worldwide, the Italian protest was not intended to be violent -- even on the “global day of rage.” According to MSNBC, Rome’s mayor blames a small handful of rioters for the trouble. “Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno blamed the violence on ‘a few thousand thugs from all over Italy, and possibly from all over Europe, who infiltrated the demonstration.’” A writer for Time says the violent protesters are actually an embarrassment to the now worldwide movement. “Judging by comments on blogs and social media, many of the protest's young sympathizers share the mayor's analysis, condemning the violence as counterproductive … Indeed, the rest of the protest movement around the world looked on the Roman violence with dismay.” The protest was originally planned to be a peaceful demonstration against the Italian government and the crumbling economy. The country’s debt burden is second only to Greece and its people are suffering from high unemployment rates, high taxes and high health care costs. (Video source: Al Jazeera) But one reporter told the BBC the protests won’t be able to address any of these problems if the government shuts them down. “I think that the government will not take any message from that. They have just closed the doors with any kind of argument at the moment. As you can hear above me, you can hear the helicopter--they’re still trying to find people. So this isn’t a moment for dialogue.” The damage is already estimated to cost more than $1.4 million.
