This episode examines the modern War Resister movement in Canada on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the arrival and refugee application of the very first UIraq War deserter, Jeremy Hinzman.

Speakers in this episode include equally high profile US Army deserter Joshua Key, author of "The Deserter's Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier who Walked Away from the War in Iraq." Key talks about the obstacles and opposition he has confronted in his efforts to exercize his conscience and seek a new life for himself in Canada.

Vietnam era Draft evader Howard Davidson shares his comments regarding the differences and similarities between today's War Resisters and those trying to escape the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s.

Michelle Robidoux with the War Resisters Support Campaign completes the discussion by elaborating on how the movement has and has not progressed over the last decade, lessons learned, and how grassroots Canadians can prevent the deportation of more US War resisters during "Let THem Stay Week.".
