this is the we have good to have you with us let's move on now more than a dozen days cenizo so a hunger strike could go on tunnel by protesting that indefinite detention on the ledge to use of torture the facility that's on the other side of the bob why it's all sunshine and smiles as on his is this a trick in their reports. despite misconceptions give lho is not just a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere full of signs of a stablished american life it is a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonalds on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell you got busted vested financial interests that you got pizza starbucks and. all of these other places that helped to set up a logistical support for the troops that are all over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s.
10:15 am
government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract server and territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from a whole life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to you know there's the don't tell me see i'm an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and a ticket bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we

10:17 am
even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books help. piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time i was going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v.
10:18 am
crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges and party guantanamo bay cuba and for more insight into the notorious dissention son to watch also his documentary big on tunnel tromp and about fifteen minutes time. each of the deposed president mohamed morsy along with forcing muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see proceedings postponed until january the eighth the ousted leader is facing. charges of encouraging a deadly crime down on dissent in cairo last december and this footage is from the opening of the hearings the first to be jailed in hama no citizens his arrest for months ago he refused to wed the man to train white uniform for defendants and

rejected the course also i say insisting his still the country's image as a middle east during his transfer to prison police were confronted by angry pro morsi molds in the capital and other cities true gauge public opinion on the prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president. is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and now despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi rami has little hope for egypt's future as mostly goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters. for the revolutionaries and now in the worst scenario we have a lot more since two thousand and eleven. should be trying but you know what it's coming to trial should be held up at every turn although we'll see troll you moving along so fast and what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to push through the cases of remnants over the. top three square once the heartbeat of the
10:20 am
revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence why it's groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against a brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other allies. to president hosni mubarak it drags on the feeling the security operators continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict maybe three intrenchments one in france and one interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on

10:24 am
washington those critics now favor holly's willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start to play misty with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable accountable transparent process. this is in place despite efforts by the us government to suggest the sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines of rocketed in price in recent years on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to the american
