3:30 am
yes i really love this place i spend my time here sometimes we clean or collect coconuts. you can't stay here and wait for the tsunami that is coming to morrow we can't but if we hadn't seen on television what happened in japan and everywhere else then we wouldn't be worried but we were shocked. we're into our own too we're told to go to her grown but there aren't any high places and to a move to it is flat here there are no mountains there's nothing. if not more ah goes then so do we poor turia. a small loss of contempt and helplessness to forget about a very real fear. and anxiety that pushed the people to ask for a delegation to be sent tomorrow a visit took place last december. but the
3:31 am
new deal we visited more or. you could see that a part of more was under water. frankly for me that worried me i was very angry after what happened he destroyed the city. we wanted answers to our questions said. after their calculations and. mathematically speaking. they say there are no risks but logically we cannot say that it will leave more twenty meters high and arrive here at less than one meter it's not possible to know according to theoretical calculations published by the french commission on atomic energy the waves would only reach the edge of the island barely touching the feet of the inhabitants but the locals have
3:32 am
a different experience of the terrain when large sum a wave swell and cover parts of terrain. i saw over there that. is no longer a nat'l it's an apple of cement. they have calculated from a very critical point here that if it ever collapses in one go. they say there will be waves twenty meters high. and we know that a way of solving even one meter will definitely affect. it. now i don't really know what's going to happen it first starts the fact that we are so close maybe if it does fall violently they'll be
3:33 am
a big mass of water. and then he will come and destroy us. don't we have discovered something relatively irrational in the minds inhabitants of. when they compare things that aren't really comparable that's an immaterial scale and the amount of energy that is mobilized between a phenomena like the tidal wave that took place in japan is in where the energy was considerable and the waves were fifteen meters tall and they wind up to two kilometers inland with the phenomenon that could happen if the coral reef were to collapse. a tall here the wave is likely to be between five and ten meters at the base of more. you know wave about two meters with this swell of around fifty centimeters. are most dire estimates
3:34 am
it would send a wave of about two or three meters to the island of fault in value to a point that. would be enough to submerge around half the atoll according to another computer simulation. because of all of variables involved such as wind will strengthen angle of the wave it's impossible to predict an exact scenario. inhabitants have real reasons for concern. you will rule after a visit to morrow we realize that we have been lied to for a very long time. since the beginning of the atmospheric and underground nuclear tests here the population hasn't believed anything that has been said all written telling us not to worry.
3:35 am
for me personally that all has been shattered calm so you see it's as if bones have been crushed. morcombe on the. that's how we saw the atl. this road takes us to the highest point of the atl to see where the tsunami would arrive. there but here we are almost twenty one kilometers from the village of a model. and we are close to a horse which is a little canal where the water flows into the ocean and the lagoon we need cover to the sea on it is via the hole that the waves would enter and they would make the levels of the lagoon rise until they completely immersed the village. and on the affair what are we going to do for our families for for our children for our grandchildren. with this threat of possible collapse we just don't know how to
3:36 am
prepare for the future for the party for the future. some are already planning to emigrate to tahiti in any case the two hundred inhabitants of this forgotten not all have many unanswered questions and a lot of resentment. see the need it is a legacy that our ancestors left us god created the land and our ancestors were able to look after it cherish maintain it and then with everything that they did he is often herodias was transformed into her throat and must be. a paradise transformed into hell.
3:37 am
this hell that the ministry of defense allowed us to visit is the secret santa called morel are in poland. which was the stage for a hundred and thirty seven underground test between nine hundred seventy five and nine hundred ninety five. taking into account the size of the nuclear blasts but question whether they could have taken place without having any effect on the stability of the atoll. one hundred thirty seven wells between six hundred and twelve hundred meters deep were dug in a goon and on the crown of the out all. these images taken in the one nine hundred sixty s. before the tests show a very regular crown. since
3:38 am
the end of the nuclear tests we know that and more there are some zones that have been weakened due to the underground testing in particular. test on the twenty fifth of july one thousand nine hundred seventy nine caused some of the exterior slopes to collapse in the southwest zone and there was a return wave that surprised everybody. seventeen kilometer protective wall was built after that. because we feared that there would be another collapse. today caused
3:39 am
a collapse far less important than the one anticipated. in the northeast we drove to the six located between a lagoon and the ocean. the road ends in a cul de sac there is danger beyond this point. behind this zone there is what we call the callet bank on which there is a deposit of clear tony i'm left by security test which caused a dispersion of radionuclides. despite previous cleaning efforts there remains a deposit of a little less than two kilos of plutonium stuck in the rock the coral reef is about quite ten meters down. so swimming here is out of the question for at least two hundred forty thousand years the total lifespan of plutonium.
3:40 am
in north east of moore is so new where twenty eight underground detonations were conducted it was recognised in the official documents from the ministry of defense that among these underground detonations seven were not contained in the volcanic zone so it was not verify. a case of incest and depravity as shocked australia in a remote valley police discovered a family that has been interbreeding for four generations brother sister father daughter uncle niece resulting in a gruesome outcome for all involved in what the police refer to as an incest cult. and i know what you're thinking you're thinking that sounds a whole lot like wall street sons and daughters program where sons and daughters of
3:41 am
the fathers and mothers aunts and uncles ruling the world are hard to see the banking system of the generation to know. for dead products. i play as street cleaner who's in love with a waitress i go on stage managing that there's an audience i used to take drugs and drink like a fish. the police told me about the circus but i was such a punk i was like what circus. are circus of clinton's gonna. break down stereotypes about kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.
3:42 am
people know me as. a mobile forty. seven i've got no family no. i'm still looking for my cold again. so my place in the world. i literally have no place to live. chewing on the bread that you bowl with the last money you were able to beg and all i can say is get out of. there are only two possible outcomes to the situation you know you go to miami and it's all about fancy cars hot chicks the other option you die in the ring breathe deep breathe deeply. dramas that can't be ignored. stories others refuse
3:43 am
to notice. faces changing the world lights now. old pictures of today's events. on to and from around the globe. up to. fifty. around thirty of the wells used for underground detonations were packed to the brim with various waste and radioactive material and then covered with a slab. time has been weathering the concrete slowly eroding the cover of each well. it is the exact opposite of what you were supposed to do with radioactive waste national agency for radioactive waste set out some rules one
3:44 am
of which specifies that waste can't come into contact with water but there it had been put in the middle of the sea. it's completely surrounded by water. there's another problem. crossed with which the military claims are natural. opponents argue that they were the result of nuclear tests whatever the cause they have grown larger over time following the unfortunate blast the french commission on atomic energy. station in one nine hundred eighty. different continental the last thirty years there's been a system in place called tell site it is a remote surveillance of the site and was constructed using several different installation techniques laterally inclined drilling of cables that are anchored three to four thousand meters in the cliffs that allow for very precise measurements of the movements there are seismic stations and inclinometer is in the wells that allow us to see and measure the internal movements of the rocks and then
3:45 am
there are various g.p.s. stations that allow us to measure the movements in relation to each other. with all this increasing surveillance of the earth all our tempting fate. these results are sent by satellite to the atomic energy commission office in paris where they're constantly analyzed throughout the year. the last surveillance report that was made available about the geo. stability of more was made in two thousand and nine. we are already in two thousand and twelve and that was the last report that we had access to. the two thousand and nine report indicates that out of the twenty devices called accidents so matters. were still functioning. he said. we have a wire for example in the francoise own that is stuck. kate is described in the report that it is stuck and obviously no longer gives any results. no results no
3:46 am
readings you know information there you go of course it happens that the wires get caught and then become unstuck but we shouldn't necessarily rely on that and then of course a wire can break but the most important thing to remember is not whether this or that sense is working or not obviously it is better if it still works then lots of security visit is the safety analysis regarding the failure of this or that sense that allows us to ensure the security of our personnel is always maintained on that . the so we need to do some sort of rejuvenation of some of the devices which is something we are looking into at the moment and we are going to proceed and rejuvenate the material there. i am certain that security and safety is currently maintained thanks to the duplication of information we get from the various senses
3:47 am
. renovation and redundancy other two main pillars of mirages geological stability. so it would appear that continued monitoring has been taken care of even if far from perfect. and we've been assured that landslides will be detected days or even weeks before they happen. this is intended to reassure the residents even though procedures do exist for the m o. since the evacuation of the twenty or so military personnel present here at the moment but there is another concern for the residents. there are five kilos of plutonium in the at all settlement in the case of a hypothetical disaster this factor remains completely unknown. or is a unique case and opinions vary as to what will become of this potential threat. i'm not especially worried about the collapse. but it is rather what is underneath
3:48 am
that worries me. to a collapse there are radioactive deposits underneath that will come to the surface that i think will end up contaminating the entire pacific zone. or this scenario be the side which is exposed next to two rio which is closest to the atoll. be the other side. money matters because the wave will act differently depending on which side it comes from. the wave goes further inland then the quoted material will be moved as it goes on that is to say that the radioactive material will sink to the bottom tony m is rather heavy radioactive waste and so it sinks will it be aspirated by the floor and then brought back by the reflux and dispersed so we really need an explanation about which scenario is the most realistic and
3:49 am
then once the risk is known we can invest in preparedness and then informing the population. this is all very fine but to have a discussion on a level playing field everyone must have access to the same sources of information the one hand the army has opened its doors allowing us to film and answering our questions but on the other there is still the natural tendency to coverup. in france there is always this desire to keep everything secret that concerns to fence. only the highest authorities with the highest clearance may have access to this information on a form a show and we must understand but for that to happen we need to have access to the source of the information this part is absolutely necessary yes but on july the first two thousand and eight during a sleepy summer and under the veil of indifference the law was passed with serious
3:50 am
consequences for access to military archives the very principle of the in communicate ability of certain archives can only be considered in the most restrictive way that is to say only when absolutely necessary from this double point of view the solution that you proposed during the first reading of this text a delay of a hundred years and a division more explicit resolve the concerned archives of the archives will only be incommunicable if they concern the information that would allow the conception fabrication utilization localization of weapons of mass destruction by the nuclear biological chemical or bacterial and not on our commitment is to not use the archives to find out how to make a salad to put it simply i couldn't care less i don't care how about how to make a bomb better we simply want access to the information they have about the environment and the health of facts mizuno it is time to listen to the voice of the
3:51 am
house on the low percentage who is for who is against the law is adopted minister it is your turn to speak but i think that the culture of military suit is really very poisonous especially concerning the health risks and the risks to the environment was it as in the united states a commission exists which has been allowed access to these military archives for all these years where we can find all the information. linked to the tests but doesn't contain the information about type of nuclear weapon that was tested or how to make such and such weapons work so that is not the goal of our involvement. which was initiated at that time as a lot of a see that. if the thousands of polynesians who worked in the real. profited from the windfall they received from mainland france they did so in secret it's difficult for them to keep the memories alive the veterans are gone taking
3:52 am
their memories and their testimonies with them history is starting to unravel and the younger generation has different worries and interests. they have never been talks between the french authorities and the local population over the thirty years of years atomic saga a large misunderstanding grew out of this and fostered the rift and bad feelings surrounding the top secret told. when the territory was forced to concede in one nine hundred sixty four which had been promised to morrow and find would be given back to its people once the tests of finished. the last test took place in january nine hundred ninety six and since then nothing had changed until january twenty twelfth on the really in two thousand and five the investigation commission of the assembly of french polynesia asked the state to recognize the two types of consequences clean up the atolls and return them to
3:53 am
their native population at the end of the plenary session on this monday the sixteenth of january just a few days ago the assembly of french polynesia gave a favorable opinion with a large majority with regards to the presentation of the it is then a big question that i asked the senate today and i asked them to happily for me in the spirit of the retrocession of the two atolls we must give these are tossed back . it is thanks to us that france became a powerful international figure thanks to our land on exist we exist and these islands exist parents lived here and i think france owes the owners of more or a lot of the property that the. german i put this proposition to a vote who is in favor of adopting this law. who is against the proposition is therefore adopted as a law. it's only
3:54 am
a small win for the senator only the first step in a long legislative procedure which will see the bill presented to the national assembly. parliament did confirm the return of the land the much larger problem still remains that the one hundred seventy five aerial and underground test have definitively condemned the at all of the big secret. i don't want the land back now it's poisoned. i don't want it back i simply want france to recognise the property rights of these islands this which are ours because we are the descendants of those who own them. there cannot be uncontrolled human activity for a very long term. and whatever happens it can't.
3:55 am
say whatever is the destiny of the. next place whether we continue the discussion or stop talking about it altogether to the truth of that statement will not change. and nothing can change that. and i start there cannot be any uncontrolled human activity and this is a tour for the moment and it is the price. to be paid by centrepoint. as france left us with now. nothing better to they have left us with nothing but their voices in this. general de gaulle's said that the nuclear terrorists more are serve the interests of peace to bring peace to the ward. pretty crazy what this peace brought with it.
3:56 am
i was thinking somehow i had to come back because mom was waiting for me. i just knew that everything would be fine for some reason we were so confident because we were going to get married officially after he came back how could he not come back

the mere thought of it never crossed her mind. thank. the militants decided to try and break through her new guinea screaming grenade. explosions blow them all round his back toward. the wall and it was all over all. we know that our comrade. on our commander won't leave us no matter how tough it gets we are the team. you're just getting was a senior in his military trio. he knew that if he didn't smother that grenade with his body more of his comrades would die he gave his own life to save his friends. what defines a country's success. faceless figures of economic growth. for

a factual standard of living. margins consumer of p.c.'s and i see it with me and the country is the federal government is simply saves property of the united states government. is the united states not privilege and it was done the public has to realize you can't just buy. your own just throw it away this is a problem for instance belongs to the united states environmental protection agency and i found this on a dump site here this is a computer it's not a waste of luminal it produces of these lives when i should be able to look at
