Tiphaine Dickson, Ben Chaney
Phil interviews Tiphaine Dickson, about the "extremely manipulative disinformation" of the movie Hotel Rwanda. "I was shocked beyond my expectations by the mendacity of the whole project and by the highly manipulative emotional nature of the way so-called facts are presented". Ms Dickson knows whereof she speaks - the Montreal lawyer represented defendant Georges Rutaganda at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. In conversation with Phil she details item after item from the movie that falsely depicts her client prejudicially. "It's irresponsible, to say the least," she says, "people are imprisoned unjustly today in Rwanda and ... three and a half million people have died as a result of the current government, the famous rebels that we hear about in the film, since their invasion of Congo in 1998"
Phil talks to Ben Chaney in more detail about the latest developments in the case of his brother, James Earl Chaney, who was murdered with two other civil rights activists in Mississippi in 1964. The Attorney General of Mississippi, despite promises to do so, did not turn the case over to federal investigators or a special prosecutor. Instead, the state has charged only one of the eight surviving perpetrators. They continue to protect the rich and powerful who were involved.
