for a british soldier who was jailed for his refusal to find what he calls an unjust war . who said no to boo and speaking out against the conflict what he called you know legal and unjustifiable his advice to the government i was i was i listen to the people just simply. people in the morning with. these conflicts. you know the call of will fall off the wagon which was the message which confusion the store. to public clinton joined the army in two thousand and four and four to seven months in afghanistan and he came home a changed man suffering to face traumatic stress disorder which he thought he would fully when he heard he was being sent back to afghanistan he did from the army and didn't come back for two years initially his military superiors were understanding but when joe spoke at an antiwar rally in london they taste charges to desertion
1:02 am
which carries a ten year prison sentence joe's mother says that exposes the hypocrisy of the conflict bringing democracy we've got freedom of speech we're fighting to introduce you to afghanistan and the lock somebody up speaking of. so clinton paid a price for his outspokenness in the notorious military jail the glass house he thinks the reason it wasn't longer was to avoid a public outcry which could have brought on an examination of the war he served his time along with other soldiers who he says will with him all the way on the stand he'd taken. i was so much support from from my fellow prisoners. and so much mildness. point i was going to undergo as a dime is fantastic so i think a fellow lawyer for the first night when. i still reckon was so much more the. jury's become the poster boy for this stop the war. coalition. heroes
1:03 am
welcome following his release from prison someone they consider a brave and principled well i mean shouldn't be punished a tool he's saying what everyone believes and everyone knows the war is not just on winnable it's a. tax defeat for the people of afghanistan more and more young british men and women are being sent out to risk their lives for a war that only the politicians support even in private i know it's a disaster james glanton story is ok because it comes straight from the front line as do the ninety thousand documents released this week showing the van this truce of a bloody conflicts and going by clinton's account of the support he received from the soldiers during his time in prison is dissent inside the armed forces something the government could have a hard time making nor nor emmett's artsy. parts of a controversial immigration law in the u.s. state of arizona which faced accusations of racism have been blocked by
1:04 am
a federal judge the new legislation have been designed to make ration a crime and penalize anyone helping undocumented workers but the judge drop the crime part and a requirement for immigrants to carry papers at all times the state government has vowed to appeal the changes critics of the law say violate people's freedoms while defenders argue rights nothing to do with it my colleague spoke to both sides. it's a victory first and foremost for civil rights and human rights. so-called illegal immigrants are part of our community there are millions of people who are in the united states without authorization they live in our communities they go to the schools with our children the members of synagogues and churches they part of the u.s. fabric and they should be treated with respect and dignity as a black man as the west african cendant of the slaves a slap in the face because what has happened is citizens of foreign countries have invade. my country the united states of america under which i have jurisdiction
1:05 am
even in the days when i was a slave i was on the jurisdiction of the united states and these folks have come into my country in the name ironically of people of color my color skin color and the civil rights of legacy and creating their struggle whatever the suffering in mexico but the mother salvador career. their struggle is not to be equated with the struggle and slave ancestors and the massacre of the forefathers for them to come into my country and take my legacy is to rob me of everything that i am and if they get amnesty the black people in this country we will die because of the numbers that are coming in this country through the through the twisting of the fourteenth amendment you know you spoke about your kind of black heritage and flavor and all of that yeah and you call yourself a third all rights activist activist here a black man and most of the protests against the flock they this is the rate if
1:06 am
they show and this is the new federal rights there and the united states if that's true how can someone like you support this law i think for many people it seems like a contradiction here the business that the united states had with the emancipated slaves has never ever finished you see we blacks lead the country in every. country and every negative social statistic that there is we are not finished with us so how can these folks come into my country in the name of my civil rights and take it from us well i think it is right to the extent that he's suggesting that there are many injustices that are experienced by african-americans society that need to be addressed i think is fundamentally wrong. to suggest that has something to do with unauthorized immigrants being in the united states or people from mexico el salvador other countries being the united states if he thinks he's going to. and injustices against african-americans by waging war effectively right by creating a repressive climate against human beings who have. to be born on the other side of
1:07 am
the us mexico border he's wrong and he's fundamentally misguided in the sense that he's creating the same type of races climate but he says war we did not invade his country mexico very much country and they are killing our people and also we need to make the united states a country that respects migrants first and foremost human beings and doesn't see. the words invaders they should be able to vote they should be able to pay taxes they should be able to come out of the shadows and be full members of the commute like everyone else. now professor joseph nevins from of the sa college in new york and a civil rights ted hayes talking to my colleague there. so i have for you this hour here in r.t. this by this continued find out why america and the media became obsessed by tales of espionage this summer. and state with r.t. for a visit to the kaluga region the center of russia science or history and a thriving place to do business. american war tactics in iraq are also

making the news a group of researchers claim the use of depleted uranium by the u.s. might be causing genetic diseases among the local population and one of the authors of the report professor christopher believes the health problems could prove worse than among survivors of the hiroshima nuclear explosion. there's an enormous amount of new science which is being completely ignored by the world health organization and by the scientists who work for the governments who are associated with the use of these weapons the science is changing we now know that your brain environs very strongly to d.n.a. and causes effects exactly at the d.n.a. where you would expect it to cause the kinds of coping with finding the cancers and the infant mortality and the congenital malformation because we all of these things that were found there are not just talking but actually here we find them to a much greater extent than epidemiological study the first statistical epidemiological study that looks at the children and the adults on the ground to see whether these effects are real and we find that they are real and if i don't
1:09 am
really really very much worse than people of thought we found evidence of the use of this weapon in afghanistan in lebanon and in gaza and so what we heard really need to do is to ask the u.s. military and the israelis and all the other people using this weapon to come clean about what it is because if we know what it is then maybe we can have some attempt to try and mitigate the problems that it's causing and possibly the international community might decide to ban it and both hollywood and the media have been gripped by spice august this year hot of the heels of anna chapman and other m r harry was arrested in the u.s. for thousands worth of hunting guns but as ganja count reports the life and one american citizen has fallen prey to the media's james bond fever. it seems the u.s. can't good without a hot spy story this summer banished danny chapman now another and has entered the stage also in her twenty's this time more of a smuggler and a spine. and if i'm on the boat was arrested in new york for trying to smuggle

1:11 am
