Summary Dateline gets to the heart of the Occupy Wall Street protest and questions whether the financial world can ignore such a huge demonstration in its midst; Nearly 30 years after the Falklands conflict, the dispute is hotting up again over whether the islands should be British or Argentinian and Angola is being rebuilt after the civil war, but it's creating new divisions over how much work and wealth is going to the Chinese. WALL STREET REVOLT New York's anti-banking protest, Occupy Wall Street, has been in residence in Manhattan for nearly a month and its support is growing. Similar protests are now taking place in the United States and worldwide against corporate greed and the gap between rich and poor, and some high profile names have put their support behind it. Aaron Lewis gets to the heart of the protest to see what life is like in the protest camp, which has rapidly developed into its own community. He asks protesters how they want to see the financial world change, and questions whether this time financiers can ignore such a huge protest in their midst? FALKLANDS FRICTION The weapons may have remained silent in the nearly 30 years since the Falklands conflict, but the war of words has continued. And now, the dispute is hotting up again over whether the islands should have British or Argentinian sovereignty. At the heart of the problem, the economic prosperity of the self-governing territory. Its government is supporting exploration for oil and it's enjoying a fishing boom, helping to give it the highest GDP in the region. But it's angered Argentina, which is trying to use its influence in Latin America to disrupt vital shipping links. Some Argentinian militants are even threatening to sabotage oil rigs around the Malvinas, as the Falklands are known in South America. So what does the future hold for these remote Atlantic islands? ANGOLA'S LABOUR PAINS China is injecting billions of dollars into Angola, but it's creating new divisions in a country already torn apart by civil war. On the surface, Chinese loans and workers are helping to rebuild the county, creating new housing and infrastructure. But Dateline's Giovana Vitola finds that behind the gleaming tower blocks and shopping centres, lies a growing Angolan underclass. They say little of the work is coming their way and they're being pushed from slum to slum by the demand for development. And with lucrative Angolan oil contracts also going to the Chinese in return for their loans, there seems no way out of the poverty for many local people.
