and neighbors have been mulling around and there were many tales of courage. if i didn't come back on time my neighbor would have been burned alive because she didn't see the fire approaching from both sides she could have been trapped in the middle at the last moment she ran out in her gown and slippers she's left without her identification and any of her documents the devastation wasn't just restricted to property. i buried my rottweiler he was near the house when it caught fire he panicked and didn't let anyone approach him. he was burned alive it was a good dog people are now coming to terms with how everything that was being lost but they all help is coming from many. who have come here to one of the temporary refuge centers where people have been coming up in their hundreds bringing food and clothes and offering help to those who lost everything in the fire with so many

time along with other soldiers who he says will with him all the way on the stand he taken. you know i was so much support from from my fellow prisoners. and so much mildness. point when it was going to underlayers a dime is fantastic so i think a fellow lawyer for the first night when. i was correct was so much more the. jury has become a poster boy for the stop the war coalition thank you hero's welcome following his release from. isn't this someone they consider brave and principled well i mean shouldn't being punished a tool he's saying what everyone believes and everyone knows the war is not just on winnable it's immoral is it to see those closing times defeat for the people of afghanistan a more i'm all young british men and women are being sent out to risk their lives for a war that money the politicians support even in private i know it's
a disaster joe blanton story is k because it comes straight from the front line as do the ninety thousand documents released this week showing the vote on this truce all the bloody conflicts and going by clinton's account of the support he received from all the soldiers during his time in prison is just said inside the armed forces something the government could have a hard time make nor nor emmett's r.t. london and coming up in the program new york resident laurie harvest asks people whether a weekly release of u.s. military files was the right thing to do. out of the sordid details of politicians i don't think we need to know the but information that is in the public just such as should know everything i believe that you know america should know a lot of things but also america should be kept in the dark about other things.
and china thousands of barrels containing toxic chemicals continue to move towards russia after being swept into a river by floods and although chinese authorities are desperately trying to intercept the poisonous containers there are unconfirmed reports that some could already be leaking their contents into the water aren't easy or if it's going off as more. base either just around fifty years ago the water in the arm or was so clean it was possible to drink it straight from the river obviously over the years the situation has changed but the ecology here is now under threat of becoming even worse chinese authorities now see that they've managed to extract. several thousand barrels which have been washed into the river last wednesday as a result of the biggest floods china has experienced in a decade but that means that several more thousand barrels are still in the water and since the river joins the. chinese located just several dozen away from here these barrels are clearly enroute to words russia chinese are eight beers
to prevent these barrels from reaching here however there are signs suggesting that the ecology is still under threat first of all out of the seven thousand barrels which have got into the water three thousand of them contain chemical substances including acids which may be harmful to the environment and there have been reports that some of these barrels have leaked these chemicals into the water and the old we also be en route towards the also been reports that some of the barrels may have sunk into the water and that creates a potential future of threat to the environment and also makes it much more difficult to extract them to do surface since the river is a major source of fresh water in the city. and in russia's far east in general many locals here are very concerned about the situation. they say they're trying to intercept them but i still think some will eventually end up here some say they're
leaking on the chemicals will come anyway. it's not the first time we've had problems like this in the winter there was a big can it will spill and we had to use what's a filter is china has to find a way to prevent the steam we won't be able to drink the source or it'll of course the authorities in russia are very concerned about the situation as well and the russian consulate and embassy are cooperating with authorities in china nevertheless the officials here are already planning ways to distribute fresh water to the local population in case of contamination. but thankfully for the emergencies ministry which is monitoring the quality of the water by taking samples at least twice a day they see that so far they haven't found any abnormalities he is going off reporting there and still ahead on the program a milestone for the eyes find out how the docking of a russian module at the international space station ten years ago made it work and

guy one of my god everybody was so excited bringing in. and yeah it was. that's because just one day before the law was to be enacted i. sat harshest provisions i'm here celebrating with the community and our victory. to be removed a celebration over one hundred long hot days in the making. and the world didn't have much that celebrate and i mean it's not a number assigned immigration law they say any year every there are a boom five they had to break through but it wasn't always a lock down but some of the most controversial provisions. took a they say their prayers were answered with we've been in pretty well you know every day twenty four hours
a day this is taking over or our lives and right now this is the only issue we can work because there's so much demand for it and you're right here we're we're directly in the thick of it right on the front lines of what is a national struggle and whenever there's a national struggle money has to be made here. now. where anyone can be a patriot belong to god. and stand in solidarity with america's immigrant population but although they. dern activist jonah clary is busy these days he's not very optimistic about the future of the hispanic community a lot of the emirates that are coming here are coming here to escape the political and economic systems that we created in their country they're coming here for for the ability to live to have crewed to have children to have what they need to take care of their families and they can't have that where they came from but largely as a result of united states imperialism in their country a sentiment that was at code by native born at naturalized citizens
a life blaming the very nation they would do anything to stay in this country is so criminal and its actions all over the world it has no right to tell one group of people not to cross borders when it's crossing illegally crossing borders and all over the world to bomb innocent people but most of these folks want to drop a different kind of bomb and i demand that the u.s. government listen when they say oh you. leave have come here for a better future please leave the first step we have to keep making their voices heard you never know dina go soft archie phoenix arizona now one of the top stories this week was the publishing of classified u.s. military information about the war in afghanistan online r t sound president laurie hardness on the streets of new york to ask whether people think it was a good decision.
the web site wiki leaks has just released more u.s. government information this time with more than ninety one thousand reports from the war in afghanistan should they be releasing such sensitive information this week let's talk about that i'm a journalist and i think freedom that you get the people need to know what's happening and i think it's great is there anything that the public shouldn't know. i don't want the sordid details of politicians out of the group we need to know that but information that's in the same public domain just such as should know everything is there any information that should never be published by a watchdog oh yeah i mean if they're saying which is going to endanger troops or something which is really going to hurt us or hurt the people who are really trying to do the right thing in afghanistan it should absolutely not be shared so out of ninety one thousand reports it is possible i'm sure there's a bunch in there that's bad stuff i believe that you know america should know a lot of things but also america should be kept in the dark about other things and
they compared to the pentagon papers this was released without a lot of. time explaining what it all means it's just a lot of information without a lot of explanation and that leads to you know anyone could take it and use it how they want to use it should they have done it no but is the i'm a she should be information classified in the first place that's another question i mean some of that information is pretty basic is it really a serious risk to national security and the fact that the information is published it doesn't look like it but it's not a good idea to be leaking classified information whether or not you think this kind of government information should be released to the public the bottom line is that now it's out there for the whole world to access so let's just hope it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. and it's ten years since the international space station first became habitable when a russian module was a life support systems docked with the orbiter even revolutionize the research

orbital station and preparation for the. i remember those years the most interesting period of strenuous work which finally did to this great result this is the mark up of the capsule which is where astronauts and cosmonauts come to train at star city who are traveling to the international space station and it is in here that you get a sense of the significance of this capsule in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the zarya and the unity capsules world watch but it wasn't until ten years ago when the capsule was attached that the space station became livable. but made it possible for the crew to stay in the station would be impossible to build the station at the pace it was constructed that without the special part of the infrastructure was now in place it was up to the station's first crew to get everything in motion bitter with those two weeks were critical since a lot of the systems were being activated for the first time some russian system
segments were merged with us systems those machines had never seen each other in earth and that was the first. they would work together. ten years on the i.s.o.'s is approaching the record for a structure being continuously inhabited in space and on are currently held by russia's mir project and while it was originally only supposed to be in service until two thousand and fifteen it looks like a bright future for the international space station which i think a part of my assessment has decided to prolong the station's use until twenty twenty and possibly even longer if the technical state of the station is good ensuring a continued international presence in space for many more years to come john thomas r.t. moscow. space break there but in just ten minutes we'll take you to the world of another future closer to hell no and that's three joint acknowledge you have data on the set of russia's first comedy filmed fully in this format. coming into the future. from

they're rescued within several minutes by those on the other side. the first one was placed in this private hospital it's still the most popular with nearly fifteen children left here in five years when asked by the books as soon as the baby's placed inside the door locks on the outside and in the llama settles i remember running to the box for the first time to see the baby inside and showing it to the doctor to be examined it felt special i think it is an amazing invention. the baby books and learned is not a doctor but a writer and horse breeder but his idea was not immediately well received with protests from some clergyman and even doctors. though the baby box is high tech with three hundred twenty eight parts special places to leave unwanted children existed even in ancient times. but the government was wary of the baby books and didn't provide funding as if i was encouraging people to get rid of their children
now the perception has changed. but it is love and christina have dated for two years and run a hostel and prague although they can have children of their own don't also like to adopt the baby box child. come from a big family i have four brothers and three forty cousins. nephews and so i like children they do not know where or when but sure enough it is a matter of time before someone than what the child will become a welcome addition to their family. r.t. prog one more headlines for you soon so stay with us.
