theory of aids has even been compared to holocaust denial include a crime against humanity the expression aids denial is really nothing but now completely probably make nobody denies that there exists an acquired immune deficiency syndrome but. a science that is a life has to have the permission to question a certain model of thinking serious thinking you know you don't bring in here a dying patient so that we have to act immediately and give him something we're discussing here we're scientists and medical doctors why should we not be able to discount i'm very astonished their reaction is sometimes so aggressive so the official aids two thousand and ten conference will be one of the most widely watched aids events in the world every day some of the topics is likely to be discussed will be access to treatment as well as new technologies and an injection

drug now organizers have titled the conference right right now which they say emphasizes the central importance of protecting and promoting human rights as a prerequisite to successful response to the problem. was our correspondent sara firth reporting from vienna. illegal immigration remains a hot topic of debate throughout the western world while millions are on the roof seeking a better life in countries that don't necessarily welcome them in the european you . gratian national parties meanwhile the border control agency. force in tackling those seeking to cross borders illegally us state of arizona has been criticized for the way people can be stopped and searched i moved back by several other states supporters claim they're just protecting jobs critics call it racial profiling and want to see first group says
5:05 am
immigrants have no place in america. california these immigrant workers are picking the millions of americans and people around the world. it's a bank breaking job not everyone is fit to do most of these. right in the united states illegally. and many are oblivious to the political firestorm that know what happened here for leave and they're going to leave any time i mean this is about lawful citizens versus illegal invaders if you want to build a fifty foot fence i'm in favor of the fifty. million illegal immigrants in the united states. those could be american jobs those could be tax paying jobs but some industries especially california agriculture businesses don't want americans working for them. which translates into workers needed
5:06 am
a spanish language sign definitely aimed towards immigrant workers a foreign based workforce that's making sure that. make it to your table there's no need for interviews or long applications undocumented immigrants simply show up at a field and they're hired many people including former president george w. bush i mean immigrant workers do the jobs americans have to do at a farm in oxnard a city just north of los angeles neighbors aren't the average american who could step in their shoes even for a day. to hire a. white person. i haven't seen any american here working here in the fields said he'll get it all came into this country illegally through the southern california desert he makes a dollar ninety for every box of strawberry fields and now in an effort to employ out of work americans and obviously to prove a point the united farm workers union is embodying american citizens to take the
5:07 am
jobs of these farm workers wouldn't be surprised if after a day or two they find themselves appreciating those who are taking the jobs we stop by the unemployment office to find out if people who are out of work would be willing to take the job of an immigrant farm worker if a farmer came up. as a farmer. and now. that. if i had a job that got me out there got me some exercise but no heavy lifting was at least eleven dollars an hour i would take it but i doubt that it's usually a lot of heavy lifting it doesn't pay too much there farmers and they're willing to pay slave labor of course they have. conservative radio host tony katz is among the growing number of supporters immigration crackdown he thinks the threat to the u.s. isn't just financial and over this is about people who may be coming with diseases we've already eradicated bringing them back into the united states america has paid
5:08 am
a significant price because of illegal immigration eric spence is the founder of we support arizona dot com he thinks americans will take the job of farm worker because an american will do what it takes to feed their family according to the united farm workers so far only three people have taken up their offer to take immigrant jobs in los angeles. r t well with more on that story in our washington studio conservative author john ramana and human rights activist reverend grady and discuss the rise of make it to the teens to illegal immigrants and new strict immigration laws in some parts the u.s. . the problem is that illegal immigrant workers have taken jobs over the years i mean the problem isn't so much of the farm industries as it's in construction bricklaying in the trades where we're seeing wage depression on a grand scale the issue is what we've got to really understand is that the whole
5:09 am
argument is around the issue of scarcity when you've got all of these folks on employed all of a sudden you've got to look for a scapegoat for the reason why folks on employed but that's not the reason why folks ought employ the reason folks on employed is because of the way the economic system was structured wasn't regulated fell apart from a part of the u.s. falling apart in europe it's the same kind of scenario now the issue that you need to understand and. should understand is that there's always been this country because of the capitalist system or a race to try to produce more or less that has always been the case so what happens is that you ended up basically outsourcing it's not that folks took jobs in fact we gave away jobs we gave away jobs to do to right there on the mexican border when we passed nafta and we passed caf to all the free trade agreements it was so that people of corporations based in the united states could escape all the kinds of regulations and all the kinds of labor laws that exist within the united states i'm open to finding
5:10 am
a solution but i can't have this one sided approach that is all business or all illegals i will you know i'll come in the middle with the reverend but it's the illegals themselves who cause trouble as well as the businesses i mean business is not innocent here business is as cost and the american taxpayer billions of dollars through skirting labor laws locally say reverend reverend how do you respond to our i don't want to have an encore again just to semantically question one is i don't call anyone a legal because there is no human being that is illegal they may be undocumented getting excited about a bunch of theological point of view to understand theological points of views and i guess that's why it's so hard because i don't have a reverend if you haven't already what you're talking about in terms of the draft. immigrant for is a new word for racism and what you're really talking about are keeping people in the shadows so that people can continue to be manipulated by corporate entities and you never look at the kinds of international policies that the united states has created another place that creates
5:11 am
a forced immigration to the united states in the first place and the reverend say that all he wants but the it's the word illegal it does count if you're breaking the law you know there is such a thing as illegal immigration the left is doing everything they can to change the fight from a legal immigrant to immigrant law that has been has been passed in the soon to be implemented in arizona really opens the door to racial profiling because if you believe on my side of the tracks one of the things you know everybody always say well the police can stop anybody without a reasonable cause well there's always reasonable cause when it comes to people of color to get stop you drive into shining a car that's reasonable cause you look like you're in the wrong neighborhood that's reasonable that's always the issue this is just the new new new form of racism i just want to ask the reverend question should there be any border law at all should anyone be allowed to come here at any time for any reason and stay as long as they want the united states i just can i get some clarity on that from you know sir well the issue is of me yes of course you want to have some regulation to the border but it needs to be home to main it needs to be just it needs to really deal with where
5:12 am
you're going as a country and it also needs to take into account the kind of policies that you have put in place and other countries that creates a forced economic immigration. conservative author john amman and human rights are going to have their discussing the immigration. the current heat wave across europe may be good for holiday makers but it could also create a significant find as it among the most effective tools they're used to extinguishing the some of the cases russian helicopters global demand for these choppers is growing rapidly as on these very emotional reports. every hundreds of thousands of have to use. spanish flies disappear the reason fire. the combination of the hot dry climate and human negligence often creates an unstoppable force resulting in a national catastrophe. but now it may have met its match. serving on the front

line for many years russian firefighting helicopters are among the best and spain has welcomed their arrival. we chose the camel toe to toe because we know it for a long time ago and we know that this is the best thirty copper for five. you know in spain for the fighting is very very important market and. it's the start of the fighting system that we have this particular fire fighting helicopter the russian k thirty two is capable of carrying up to five tons of water it takes just ten seconds for the crew to feel its huge container haiti's and just fifteen seconds to drop it onto a fire so it's rather quick which is extremely important but this isn't the only feature that makes this russian models turned out. to students just move in the opposite directions and no tail rotor makes the machine more stable period and more accurate. they stability and accuracy also going to

safety for firemen both on the ground and in the air. as that even at the if you sent over fire with flames reaching the helicopters cue she always feels safe i know some of the know now but it's made in russia but it works perfect hearing and it's easy to control easy to maneuver it's not afraid of strong winds when others can't even takeoff it continues to work it's an ideal helicopter to work in emergency situations as they say it's gone through fire and vice versa i didn't like it but now it's my favorite. pilots say the k. thought cities always the last helicopter to leave a missionary or is that it's their world historically the thirty two has been made on the basis of k. twenty seven a multi purpose boat helicopter designed to work in hard meterological conditions and aggressive climates that's why it's on rivaled in this field for this particular mission was. ten russian k.

falsities already a feature in the skies over spain which to me due to join the ranks of the country's army and as the spanish saw mine testifies their presence could be of critical importance ration ocean otty alekhine to severe spaying. the potsdam conference is known in history as the moment when a new map of europe was drawn three weeks after the unconditional surrender of nazi germany leaders from the three eyed nations sat down together in an attempt to establish a post-war order as a result germany was divided into four zones and control allied forces but the meeting also became the last time the allies worked together before the cold war and some experts believe that the time of the potsdam conference decades of political conflicts could have been avoided. i think there was there was still a real chance at the time of plots to avoid the cold war i think what it required was and it would have been
5:16 am
a leap of faith in the summer of nine hundred forty five but it required a real understanding of the scale of the suffering that the soviet union had in jewett on a realisation that if we take the story back to nine hundred forty two when the soviet union had been invaded the german forces were stalling it wasn't just being invaded by germany but by a coalition of eastern european countries remaining on this treaty you can call christmas from darien on this there were croatian troops fighting but selling drugs and the perception was of course this was how the journey through the un to that that it was a crusade a european precise against bolshevism and if we bear that in mind i think we can understand the soviet point of view was that they want they want to do create a buffer and to stop the similar crusade happening in the future. there are more

5:19 am
. a matter of months those who worked the russian investigation teams say laying the blame on them is not fair there was in essence a joint investigation underway which i think was very wise sides so i know that there have been an ongoing series of conversations and efforts because we do need to understand what happened to that point so where does the doubt and the transparency of the investigation and the causes of the crash come from some believe politics could be playing their feet. are fond of believing that it was russian factor and that the second major. major factor is that there is a strong media coverage on this issue and the. political fight between parties using this crash as it often goes it was a tragedy that broke the ice between two people. but moscow in warsaw closer than
