KILL*

*            Refusiniks from around the world speak out*

*             Produced by Payday, a network of men working with

*"I'd rather go to prison for desertion than kill a child by mistake",* *Sgt  
Camilo Meja, US army. Sentenced to a year in prison for refusing to return to  
Iraq.*
*Refuseniks and their families, supporters and other anti-war protesters  
around the world,  from the Second World War, wars in Africa, Vietnam,  
Palestine and the two Gulf wars tell their stories.*

*Only 2% of soldiers shoot to kill. So the military needs to brainwash the  
98% who don't.  Everywhere people are drafted into the military by law or  
poverty. Those who refuse to kill are punished, jailed, sometimes  
killed.  In spite of that, there is a growing movement of refuseniks  
supported by their loved ones usually women.*
