British & Irish Lions Tour 2001 – The Waratahs War

first_imgTuesday May 6, 2008 British & Irish Lions Tour 2001 – The Waratahs War Against the NSW Waratahs on their 2001 tour of Australia, a near Test-strength Lions side took the field and won a bruising encounter, in which five yellow cards and one red were shown in a game that will forever be remembered for it’s brutality. ADVERTISEMENTThe match that began with a first-minute yellow card for New South Wales lock Tom Bowman boiled over early in the second half when home full-back Duncan McRae was shown the red card for his seemingly unprovoked assault on O’Gara.In the next passage of play another fight developed among the forwards. Cameron Blades and Brendan Cannon of New South Wales, and Danny Grewcock and Phil Vickery of the Lions, were sent to the sin-bin for 10 minutes. At the time, O’Gara was still being helped from the field for stitches around a rapidly closing left eye.At one stage in the game there were three missing from the New South Wales line-up, and the Lions two short, so the game disintegrated. But even without all the comings and goings to the sin-bin, the 10 minutes when it was 12 against 13 were, as O’Driscoll put it, “absolutely farcical”.The game ended with a convincing 17 point margin victory for the Lions though, but the injuries and brutality they faced would be remembered for a long time.Lions coach Graeme Henry maintained that it was “a bad day for rugby. I thought the game had been cleaned up. This was a shambles”. Henry is in no doubt who was to blame. “Rugby needs strong discipline from both sets of players. I was proud of the way our players kept theirs.” 9:24ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

NBA and China: The ‘right to free speech’ vs. the right to sovereignty

first_imgThe great Yao Ming.The Houston Rockets are the most popular National Basketball Association team in China for one main reason: Yao Ming, the current president of the Chinese Basketball Association and an NBA Hall of Famer, played eight seasons for the Rockets. Basketball is very popular in China, thanks to the Chinese national team and the NBA.  Daryl Morey, the general manager of the Rockets, tweeted out seven words during the first weekend in October that set off a firestorm of controversy and debate from China to the U.S.  Those seven words were: “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.”  Those words were immediately deleted almost as fast as they were posted. Morey issued an apology after the Rockets’ owners publicly stated that they do not take political positions.  No matter, however, because the damage had already been done.  The Chinese government stated that they were insulted and outraged over Morey’s comments.  One only has to examine the class nature of the Hong Kong protests to understand why. These protests have been pro-imperialist and pro-colonial, reflected by U.S. and Union Jack flags, which are totally reactionary and insulting toward China’s sovereignty and self-determination. There have even been visible signs asking for Trump to intervene by making Hong Kong a U.S. territory! Morey’s tweet, suggesting that Hong Kong, a strategic center of global finance capital, should break away from mainland China, is blatant interference into the country’s internal affairs. Yet the U.S would be up in arms if, for example, China suggested the Virgin Islands break free of U.S. control.China is a significant market for the NBA due to social media and the internet. In fact, according to David Carter, executive director of the USC Sports Business Institute, 10 percent of the NBA’s total revenue comes from China. That percentage is expected to double by 2030.NBA Commissioner Adam Silver apologized to the Chinese government for the tweet at a recent press conference in Tokyo. However, in the same breath, Silver defended Morey’s “right to free speech” and stated further that the NBA “will not pursue profits over principles.”  In a rebuttal to Silver, the Chinese state’s CCTV Sports said, “We believe any remarks that challenge national sovereignty and social stability do not belong to the category of free speech.” (CNN, Oct. 8)  Contrary to his statement, Silver wants to downplay the economic impact of this impasse with China, banking that a proposed meeting with Yao Ming will help resolve this huge political rift which would have major implications for the NBA’s bottom line.    NBA players, especially high-profile ones who have multimillion-dollar merchandise contracts with Chinese businesses, have now been sanctioned by the NBA hierarchy not to answer any media questions associated with Morey’s tweet, even though this won’t stop the media from putting pressure on these players, the majority of whom are Black. LeBron James from the Lakers stated that Morey was “misinformed” and “wasn’t educated” on the situation in China.  He went on to say, “I think when we talk about the political side, it was a very delicate situation, a very sensitive situation.  [I] do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk about that.” (, Oct. 14)China’s justified responseCCTV canceled a telecast of a preseason game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers in Shanghai and Shengzhen. Tencent Sports (TCEHY), the NBA’s exclusive digital partner in China, plans to cease livestreaming Rockets’ games indefinitely and not report any news about the team. The Chinese government also canceled activities hosted by NBA Cares — a program that connects players to communities where teams are based — along with media events.Chinese smartphone maker Vivo and other businesses announced plans to suspend contracts with the NBA.  Joseph Tsai, the Chinese principal owner of the Nets, wrote Oct. 6 on Facebook, “The NBA is a fan-first league. When hundreds of millions of fans are furious over an issue, the league, and anyone associated with the NBA, will have to pay attention. As a Governor of one of the 30 NBA teams, and a Chinese having spent a good part of my professional life in China, I need to speak up.“The problem is, there are certain topics that are third-rail issues in certain countries, societies and communities. Supporting a separatist movement in a Chinese territory is one of those third-rail issues, not only for the Chinese government, but also for all citizens in China.“The one thing that is terribly misunderstood, and often ignored by the Western press and those critical of China is that 1.4 billion Chinese citizens stand united when it comes to the territorial integrity of China and the country’s sovereignty over her homeland. This issue is non-negotiable.” Tsai went on to explain historically how China was occupied by foreign powers such as Japan, Russia, Britain, France, United States, Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary throughout the 20th century until the Chinese Revolution liberated one-fourth of humanity in 1949. The right of free speech is a phony argument that not only deepens anti-communist attacks on China but hypocritically ignores the human rights’ violations that occur every minute of every day inside the U.S.  Sports commentators and other bourgeois pundits should not have the right to attack China when, historically and currently, the right to free speech has been granted to white supremacists and sexual abusers like Trump under the guise of protecting bourgeois democratic ideas. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

¿Por qué ganaron los beneficios de DACA?

first_imgLa Corte Suprema por más de 230 años ha llevado a cabo los objetivos conservadores de sus creadores. Ha protegido la propiedad privada, incluida la “propiedad” de los seres humanos, y ha minimizado el derecho de los pobres a asociarse para la lucha unida. Actualmente, Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos (siglas en inglés SCOTUS), consta de una mayoría de jueces conservadores y reaccionarios, más algunas excepciones.Por lo tanto, muchas personas se sorprendieron de que el 18 de junio este tribunal de derecha detuviera a la administración Trump, al menos temporalmente, de deportar a los beneficientes de un programa de la era de Obama – Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (siglas en inglés, DACA). Estos “soñadores” son hijos de migrantes que cruzaron las fronteras de los Estados Unidos con sus padres cuando ninguno de los dos tenía permiso legal oficial para vivir y trabajar en los Estados Unidos.DACA les había dado a los niños el derecho de permanecer aquí. Trump rescindió DACA. “Soñadores” se refiere a la Ley DREAM anterior, nunca aprobada, que habría protegido a 2 millones de jóvenes indocumentados de la deportación.La gran mayoría de los padres de los Dreamers han suministrado su trabajo, a menudo por bajos salarios, en los sectores más esenciales de la economía: agricultura, construcción, hoteles y restaurantes, además de trabajos en hospitales y otros servicios, incluido el cuidado de niños. Sus hijos, los Dreamers, superaron las “desventajas” de la pobreza para terminar la escuela u otra capacitación.Se necesita un político particularmente vicioso para culpar a los inmigrantes de los problemas económicos en los EE.UU. Se necesita un criminal xenófobo como Trump para usar a los hijos de los inmigrantes como chivos expiatorios para movilizar su propia base racista.Tanto los beneficiarios de DACA como sus padres merecen el derecho de quedarse en los EE. UU. y trabajar, si así lo desean. Y deberían tener derecho a todos los beneficios que los trabajadores han ganado aquí, incluidos el Seguro Social, la compensación por desempleo, la atención médica, etc. La igualdad salarial y los beneficios ayudarían inevitablemente a todos los trabajadores.La decisión de SCOTUS, que permite a la administración Trump una oportunidad para revisar sus tácticas anti inmigrantes, fue sin embargo una victoria, un pequeño paso adelante, importante para los beneficiarios de DACA.El movimiento DACA mismo y sus partidarios en todo el movimiento de in/migrantes merecen crédito por llevar a cabo la lucha en los últimos años y especialmente la huelga general en 2006 para defender sus intereses. Esto incluye su campaña para abolir la pandilla de policías de inmigración, también conocida como el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas, y para cerrar los campos de concentración de ICE que retienen a los inmigrantes y propagan COVID-19.Sin embargo, es importante entender por qué incluso los jueces reaccionarios de SCOTUS votaron en contra de Trump.Durante el mes pasado, un movimiento por Black Lives Matter ha surgido 100 veces más fuerte que antes, impactando cada evento social. El movimiento de los y las inmigrantes han sido solidarios con BLM y viceversa. Este nuevo movimiento poderoso ha barrido monumentos de las calles y espectáculos policiales desde las ondas aéreas. Ha elevado la literatura antirracista a la cima de las listas de best-sellers y ha puesto la existencia de la policía en la lista de puntos para debate.SCOTUS debe haber tenido esto en mente cuando tomó su decisión, junto con la decisión a principios de semana de que el Título VII de la Ley de Derechos Civiles de 1964 protege a los trabajadores LGBTQ2S + de la discriminación laboral.Si bien ninguna de las victorias se ha hecho permanente, la ola de lucha global sin precedentes ya es algo que incluso los jueces reaccionarios de la Corte Suprema desearían evitar ahogarse.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Defend voting rights!

first_imgThe former Republican president may be absent from the corporate media these days, but his racist and pro-rich ideas live on in all reactionary political institutions and organizations. This ideology flourishes in the Republican Party’s current assault on the universal right to vote. We are well aware of the limitations of elections in capitalist society. In the United States, election winners, even locally, are nearly always from the two major capitalist parties. Big money dominates. The billionaire-owned corporate media enforce pro-capitalist ideology and trash anyone promising even mild social reforms.The U.S. Constitution itself imposes inequality by disproportionately empowering states with small populations. It traps the presidential contest in the Electoral College. It fills Senate seats with the rich and reactionary. Despite these already existing biases, this 2021 Republican-led assault on the right to vote aims to take inequality to a new level. Or better said, to a time before the 1965 Voting Rights Act, when not only all the states in the former Confederacy but many others prevented African Americans from voting. To revert to that period, Republicans have introduced 250 measures in 43 states that target Black people and all people of color by placing a minefield between them and the voting booth.These rights, won in struggle from the post-Civil War era to the Civil Rights Movement, must never be surrendered.  We must combat this offensive to deny voting rights by fighting to expand the right to vote. This includes rights for incarcerated workers and released workers with felony records, who are disproportionately Black and have been denied their right to vote for years – sometimes for their entire lives.  Migrant workers denied citizenship are also barred from voting.  The Republican pretext for these anti-voting maneuvers is the Big Lie that electoral fraud cost the last president his reelection. The truth is that Trump was so despised that it was possible to mobilize a greater number of voters to vote against him, even if they mistrusted his opponent. Trump was loathed − with good reason − especially in big cities, especially by Black voters and other voters of color, especially by young people, and in general by people disgusted with his open racism, xenophobia, misogyny and bigotry.The mobilization of anti-Trump voters flipped states he and the rest of the Republican leadership thought he would win, like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona and Georgia, where Republicans narrowly lost both Senate seats in run-off votes.The Republican leadership, even those who saw no electoral fraud and fought Trump’s Big Lie − like the Georgia Republicans – concluded that their party could only win elections by suppressing votes of Black and Brown people. Michael A. Carvin, the lawyer representing the Republican Party of Arizona in its attempt to curtail voting in that state, admitted that voting rights for all “puts us at a competitive disadvantage relative to Democrats. … It’s the difference between winning an election 50-49 and losing.” (New York Times, March 3)Those 250 bills contain various measures to disenfranchise oppressed communities. They limit early voting, restrict voting on Sundays because Black churches often organize the congregation to go vote together, restrict the number of voting centers to make it inconvenient in cities with large Black communities, impose a modern version of the “literacy test” that rejected Black voters in the pre-1965 South, forbid voting centers on college campuses, etc.It is uncertain what energy the Democratic Party leadership, including Joe Biden, will invest to prevent this Republican assault. Democrats have introduced a new voting rights bill in Congress, but Republicans promise to block it in the Senate with a filibuster. In the past, the Democrats who control the party have avoided waging an all-out struggle to extend voting rights to the most oppressed – because that would strengthen the left wing of their own party.Unlike the Democratic Party, working-class and revolutionary organizations have a duty to defend the rights of the most oppressed and exploited sectors of the population, whether it’s the right to organize unions, to form tenant organizations, to support movements to defend civil rights, or to mobilize the vote.  This duty amounts to significant anti-racist solidarity to help strengthen class unity.  Smash the attack on voting rights!Extend the right to vote to all!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Uthayakumar, who has been held since 13 December 2007 at Kamunting prison (northeast of Kuala Lumpur) under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for posting a letter he wrote to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on his website (http://“Uthayakumar’s detention yet again shows to what degree the ISA is used to violate the principle of free expression,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By allowing someone to be arrested and held without charge, this law enables the government to silence its opponents. We urge the authorities to release Uthayakumar, who just used his right to free speech.”Uthayakumar was arrested under article 8 of the ISA, which says: “If the (interior) minister is satisfied that the detention of any person is necessary with a view to preventing him from acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of Malaysia or any part thereof or to the maintenance of essential services therein or the economic life thereof, he may make an order directing that person be detained for any period not exceeding two years.” The detention order can be renewed indefinitely.Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard wrote to the British prime minister on 3 November asking him “to intercede as quickly as possible and to press for Mr. Uthayakumar’s release.” The 10 Downing Street staff told Reporters Without Borders that the prime minister had “taken note of his request.”In his letter to Brown, dated 15 November 2007, Uthayakumar asked him to support a UN security council resolution condemning the Malaysian government’s “atrocities” and “persecution” of the country’s Hindu minority and referring the case to the International Criminal Court.Urging Brown to act on behalf of Malaysia’s Hindus, Uthayakumar wrote that: “Since independence in 1957, the Malaysian Indians have been permanently colonialised by the Islamic fundamentalists and Malay chauvinists of the (…) government.” He also wrote that: “Every week one [Hindu-minority] person on average is killed in a shoot-to-kill policy and every two weeks one person is killed in police custody.”Aged 47, Uthayakumar has been campaigning for more than 10 years on behalf of Malaysia’s Hindu minority and trying to alert public opinion about the deaths of Hindus in detention.center_img February 22, 2021 Find out more MalaysiaAsia – Pacific News December 12, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of Hindu minority lawyer arrested a year ago under security law MalaysiaAsia – Pacific New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth Organisation to go further March 17, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Photographer arrested in round-up of North Korean refugees

first_img Follow the news on China Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) called today on China to release at once a freelance South Korean photographer, Jae-Hoon Saek, who was arrested during a police crackdown on North Korean refugees in northern China between 11 and 18 January.It noted, in a letter to Chinese foreign minister Tang Jiaxuan, that it was not the first time journalists, especially from South Korea, had been threatened for investigating the ill treatment by the authorities of North Koreans fleeing the regime of Kim Jong-il.The photographer, a freelance who has worked for the New York Times and other papers, was arrested on 18 January with refugees in the port city of Yantai, in Shandong province, opposite the Korean peninsula. The police had promised to help them leave China by boat for South Korea and Japan but then rounded them up and took them to detention centres to send them back to North Korea. Ten others had been arrested in the northeastern province of Jilin between 11 and 15 January.Chinese police usually try to prevent journalists, especially South Koreans, from reporting on the harsh treatment of thousands of North Koreans fleeing their country’s poverty and repression. China has an agreement with North Korea to return home all those who try to flee.Last August, police searched the home of the Beijing correspondent of the South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo and took away files and other material about North Korean refugees in China.

County resident survives snake bite

first_imgLatest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration County resident survives snake bite Print Article Skip Published 10:59 pm Monday, June 15, 2009 Leon Donaldson was saddling his horse late Sunday afternoon, and his wife, Elaine, was searching for the place the mama cat had moved her kittens. And, had it not been for the continuous barking of their dog, there would have been nothing unusual about the hot, summer Pike County day.“The dog just wouldn’t hush, and the horse was acting up, but I just thought that was because it hadn’t been ridden in a while,” said Leon Donaldson.All the while, Elaine Donaldson was making her way around the back yard looking for the kittens. Sponsored Content “I was looking down at the ground, and I didn’t see anything but I stepped on something,” Elaine said. “When I moved my foot to see what it was, some hit my leg. That’s when I saw the snake coiled up. I yelled but I didn’t see any blood, and it didn’t really hurt. Leon came running but I told him that I wasn’t sure it bit me.”But in a matter of minutes, Elaine said her foot began to throb and swell.Her son got her in the car and they rushed from their home near Center Ridge church about 15 miles out on Highway 87 to meet the rescue unit at Gateway. The snake bite occurred about 6:10 p.m. Sunday. Elaine was treated in the emergency room and kept in intensive care through Monday. She hopes to go home today.Leon said the moccasin was the only snake that he has seen on their property in the six years they have lived there.“The other one was a black snake,” he said. “We don’t live near water or anything and the yard is clean — not anywhere that you would think there might be snakes.”Elaine said some leaves had fallen in the area where the snake was coiled, and it blended in with the leaves so she didn’t even see it.“People need to be very careful because snakes could be anywhere,” she said.“They aren’t just in the high grass or bushes. They could be in your flowerbeds or just out in the open like the one that bit me. From now on, everything will look like a snake to me.“I know that I was lucky, and the doctor said that we did the right thing to get to the hospital as fast as we could.”The Donaldsons were complimentary of the care that Elaine received at Troy Regional Medical Center. Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell “Leon shot the snake and put it in a sack and came behind us to the hospital,” Elaine said. “I was scared to death, and I’ve never been so proud to see an ambulance in my life. I knew then that I had help. I had panicked, and what they did on the ambulance was start an IV and try to keep me calm.“When I got to the emergency room, they were able to identify the snake as a cottonmouth moccasin so they knew exactly what kind of anti-venom to give me. My foot swelled and hurt so bad but the doctor said I was lucky because only fang really got me. I might have broken one of the fangs when I stepped on the snake or maybe the other fang just grazed my foot.”Leon said the snake was about three feet long and as big around as a quarter.“But a little snake can have as much venom as a big one,” he said.
