9:00 am
coming in on your rally there were a military base nicknamed the school of assassins i never. hear. me and i don't understand. a correspondent for tink our man john mccain way were forced to pay a fine after they were accused of taking pause in the rally in pieces still considering another charge against them for allegedly a link to a baby failing while the two of a office's instructions despite the crew claiming they followed every order came forward to use out the center of the story described the action of the police as brutal. it without it was very stressful we were treated like any other inmates and of course we were not given any special treatment any special privileges we were actually separated men and women and so i didn't get to to speak with my cameramen hardly at all we could see each other occasionally through the window and we sort
9:01 am
of you know communicated with each other to try to tell each other that we were doing ok it's a piece. of never any sort of violence never any sort of vandalism in fact the people who do those protests they were protesting against the you know the so-called assassins the school the america had for banning they're not protesting against this town and they've actually enjoyed quite good relations with the surrounding community. of columbus georgia this year however has been different. there were some arbitrary detention there were some arrests of innocent bystanders and every year of course people intentionally get arrested to draw attention to the issue that at the school of the americas in the human rights issues of its graduates however this here is many people who are not intending to get arrested who are merely innocent bystanders including one man who the owner of a barber shop are also arrested and detained and myself and my camera man included for more than thirty hours many of the people who were filming both journalists and
9:02 am
just people who were there filming on their you know small consumer cameras were harassed and if there were very a distinct impression that the police were going after people who were filming and documenting what happened there were demonstrators we were covering this as members of the news media accredited to cover this event and so of course you know we pled not guilty to charges there's been local charges which have already gone through the system here even though we weren't offered a trial and then also state charges which are still pending we had many people who were in solidarity with that outside of the jail we got word that more than two hundred people had gathered for a candlelight vigil outside the jail when they had learned we had been arrested. basically the entire. they stayed to our hearing our arraignment showing solidarity shown support for as we walk in the courtroom was full. of activists the people in solitary as people who believed in our innocence and specially the numbers of the
9:03 am
press and our right to tell the truth about what happened there. twenty years activity at the fort benning military counter being question has been the subject of harsh public scrutiny. there has been a growing public outrage with what's going on at fort benning and is training camp for latin american military and law enforcement officers they've trained around sixty thousand of them many of whom have returned to their countries and became very dangerous they committed all kinds of human rights abuses for example the nine hundred ninety three the united nations truth commission on el salvador named the army officers who had committed the worst atrocities of the civil war they are two thirds of them had been good it had been trained at the school of the americas in chile the schools graduates ran both. secret police and his and some of his main prisons there which are often referred to as gratian cambs generals who led the bloody military coup in honduras in two thousand and nine were trained at the
9:04 am
school of the americas which is now called the western hemisphere institute for security cooperation while the name has changed but the practices obviously have. have not caylee now reporter was covering all this in the rally outside fort benning where the training center is located. still ahead a few this more debt more aid is the proves the. island we'll see the future of an alliance running to the rescue each time one of its members fails also. the erroll sea has become a wasteland of sand salt and pollution i'm lindsay friends join me in kazakstan to investigate how this transformation has affected the people here and how we put it down on the environment for. a vote has published new details of the joint they say russian missile defense shield the skulls on the only
9:05 am
clones of last weekend's alone summit in this been under a new proposal for the by president that if the two sides that would cut the fare to a territory well flies in the identified diplomatic solution the paper says that simply speaking russia would be risp. handling rogue missiles from the east a naysay will cover russia from the west experts say this plan would allow both suddenly has to remain secure and independent in terms of their anti missile systems it's also a believe been vetted strategy would help to dispel russia's concerns me european systems. keeton from the mosque a state university of foreign relations says the west needs russia to feel true that our cooperation in several a direction in which missiles started from the territorial of certain states come out of the only bar a certain quantity of all of the lies below given isaac your united states or russia or some european powers. you really knew. a lot of.
9:06 am
airspace to be warned in advance a ball is a potential strike from this point of your example of impatient i was in your system against potential strikes from iran or north korea would require a. much more informational to be built this offer i should be able to use i may be informational capability for looking at the european powers from this point if you are sure that you need to. establish the system so full scale and there she is ready for the go she should suppose that. keeps him from the most diverse even stash the relations. now dead stricken island will receive a massive bailout of labor one hundred billion dollars from the european union and international monetary fund it's the second emergency rescue pattern cool devised. to similar measures were taken for the greeks well for more on this i'm now joined by sam bowman head of free sets of the adam smith institute in london many thanks
9:07 am
for joining us mr bowman now britain's share in this proposed bailout really does look to be the lion share of an eleven billion dollars so how will the government do things sell that to the british people who. and facing massive security considering that britain's nobody would upon all three year i say well i think they probably shouldn't the government is justifying this by saying that it's a major trading partner for the u.k. so the british taxpayer should really foot the bill to support our land but it's a bit like turning to a bankrupt neighbor and giving him a thousand pounds in the hope that he'll spend some of it in your shop it just doesn't make economic sense to bail out arlington this way and speaking to people on the ground in the general irish public they do not want to spell out they think that it's bad for the country because really what it is is a bit out for irish banks and for the irish government rather than for the irish taxpayer so i think that the money that's going here is really trying to kick the can down the road so to speak to give the money to these irish banks in the hope
9:08 am
that there won't be any aftershocks in the u.k. economy and i think really what we need to do is look at the problems look at the root problems and let the irish banks wind while addressing the problems in the u.k. because giving this money to ireland really is a massive gamble with british taxpayers' money it's a huge amount of money as you said and it's not something that the british government should be doing so a bailout that no one really seems to home and it is another bailout for get another struggling you are a member. they're all through all this teetering on the brink at the moment portugal spain except do you think that the year is a realistic is going to survive to bail out every single failure is there a risk of self implosion here. honestly i think the euro zone's days are numbered i can't see the euro survive in this decade certainly not the next ten years probably not the next one or two years in fact bailing out ireland will as i say kick the can down the road maybe arland will bring down the euro but probably portugal spain or even if it really will the exposure of for example the french economy to charlie and banks it's absolutely massive twenty percent of the entire french economy is.
9:09 am
france by charlie and banks by italian bond holders so if it really goes france economy will collapse the entire eurozone will collapse if one of the larger mediterranean countries goes and i think that really what island and what the u.k. needs to realize is that it's not a matter of bailing out the euro because that's what this bailout is aiming to do the bailout is trying to sustain the euro currency but that actually won't work really the question is do we do it now in an orderly way to wind down the euro and help ireland out of the euro zone or do we try and wait for one of the massive european economies like spain or italy to collapse and they will really be in trouble because there's no way we can afford to bear that out and we really really it will be a difficult situation and what we need to do is to help our land out of the euro zone help the restart their own currency which can float so that they can devalue that and be competitive on the world markets moving again and it will be good for the british taxpayer because britain will see prosper when all and prosperous as well well as you suggest there one way out of this impasse would be for some
9:10 am
countries to revert back to their original currencies to many here it does look like europe success stories they're paying for they spend money that they simply don't have and some as you say those who have failed should maybe revert back to their own currencies and quit the euro is going to save it and you mention a lot in that would you lump any other countries into that. i think most countries in the euro zone would be quite well off leaving the euro and entering it back into their own currency the european monetary union was always a political project it was always something that put the idea of the federal europe first hopes that the economics would come later. and really in economic terms it was a case of asking water to run uphill it just doesn't make sense and what we're seeing now is this kind of the chickens coming home to roost in terms of the european monetary union and maybe some of the core european countries like germany and france might be able to continue with the euro but the peripheral countries like ireland greece spain italy portugal these are countries that need their own
9:11 am
currencies and they need to be able to have flexible currencies with flexible exchange rates so that they don't enter into massive bubbles in the way that the irish colony has been suffering or have been suffering over the last ten years to you at the low interest rates at the euro which might have been good for france and germany were terrible for the irish economy because they meant that it overheated and eventually this property bubble took place another book has burst world paid for and i think that it's time the island needs the euro and britain should do what it can to help our luggage but not at the expense of the british taxpayer troubled times for the year a family the head of the adam smith institute many thanks. thank you you thank . oh woman so the world's fourth largest leg the whole thing in central asia is now loaded for one of being the wells what you could also call disaster is to solve it irrigation projects the water is stunted receding fifty years ago causing a drastic change to the local climate and killing most marine life but one of the
