Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img Ready, Teddy go: Teddy Thomas scored a fourth try in two games LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Campese Ma’afu The only red card of the weekend went to George David Campese Ma’afu for driving through under the legs of the airborne – and former regional colleague Bradley Davies – at a lineout and thus getting his second yellow card, leaving Fiji with 14 men for the final 27 minutes. It was dangerous and particularly brainless from the loosehead given that he hadn’t long returned from his initial spell in the sin-bin and his team-mates would not have been thanking him – not that they did badly without him.More than they bargained for: The All Blacks nearly came unstuckThe All BlacksWhen the All Blacks concocted their side, with no less than 13 changes – and rolled out a rusty Dan Carter and talisman Richie McCaw to keep the assembled masses happy – they probably thought they were in for an easy day at the office. After all, it was only Scotland, right? Sadly, Scotland hadn’t read the script, as they tore in the All Blacks second-string. With 73 minutes on the clock they were within a point of the World Champions and could have been in front if Greig Laidlaw had kicked a late penalty, before Jeremy Thrush crashed over. By that time, both Julian Savea and Sonny Bill Williams had entered the fray to see out the win. It smacked of not taking Scotland seriously, and nearly cost them.Plastic hornsYou want some match atmosphere but the plastic horns which are on sale outside the Millennium Stadium, and blown constantly throughout the match by fans are grating in the extreme. We’d all prefer to Hymns and Arias during the game but sadly there was none of that during the Wales v Fiji match, just and incessant and repetitive blasting of horns. Few tears will be shed if they are banned from the stadium before the Six NationsStalled: England lacked creativity as they slumped to a fifth consecutive defeatLimited EnglandSaturday was a dark day for England. A fifth successive defeat – albeit, four times to the World Champions – was sobering, but it was the manner of the loss was disspiriting. England fashioned three tries, but they were all made in the tight exchanges. At half-back, Danny Care and Owen Farrell were ponderous and off-colour and could not unlock the Springbok defence or set the tempo and the balance in midfield is not right, this time with Kyle Eastmond and Brad Barritt. It’s time for Ben Youngs and George Ford to see if they can spark some sort of ingenuity against Samoa.London WelshThe pastings continue. Wasps scored 11 tries and 71 points against the now Oxford-based team in their final league game at Adams Park, leaving London Welsh to rue their 11th straight loss. The Championship play-offs have a lot to answer for; Bristol sat at the top of the Championship table for the whole season, but fell at the final hurdle leaving London Welsh to progress to the Premiership. But this system also gives teams a mercilessly short period of time in which to plan for the following season, sign new players, and get a solid pre-season training programme done. TAGS: Highlight SaintsTeddy Thomas: Remember the nameThe 21-year-old from Biarritz is the latest player to be anointed the ‘the prochaine grand chose’ in French rugby. It’s not hard to see why. Four tries in two games, has elevated the Racing Metro wing to hero status at a rate of knots. His try against Australia was sublime. He sidestepped the heavy Wallaby traffic, out on the touchline, darted through a gap in the defence like a master thief and stepped off his right-leg to power round a despairing Nick Phipps tackle. Bravo!Dave Foley: A debut to rememberThe second row from Tipperary has been learning from the master, Paul O’Connell, at Munster, and on Saturday his dream came true as he won his first Ireland cap. He repaid Joe Schmidt‘s faith by putting in a Man of the Match performance, winning 100% of his lineouts. He also showed how adept he is around the park, making seven tackles and missing none, beating one defender, and carrying 17 metres.Foley narrowly beat Ian Madigan to win the Man of the Match award, who was deputising for Johnny Sexton and kicked 19 of Ireland’s 49 points. The Leinsterman also made two clean breaks and beat five defenders.Masterclass: Schalk Burger has the nous and grit to unsettle EnglandThe Incredible SchalkThe Burger family of Port Elizabeth would have doubtless shed a tear on Saturday night after young Schalk picked up his Man of the Match award, rumbling over a try in the process, when South Africa were down to 14-man. His comeback from a life-threatening bacterial meningitis scare and a broken leg would have broken lesser men but Burger, one of the most popular players in the Springbok camp, has forced is way back into the Bok back row by sheer force of will and he was magnificent, maurauding presence at the breakdown this weekendLiam Williams: One shining lightLiam Williams was the only standout performer for Wales on a day to forget in Cardiff. His running from deep saw him carry 224 metres – nearly forty per cent of his side’s entire total against Fiji – and he beat 13 defenders, with next best carrier Alex Cuthbert on 67m. Williams also kicked intelligently out of hand and showed his customary bravery in the air. Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him and he will feel rightly aggrieved if he’s not lining up against New Zealand next weekend.Front-foot ball: Scotland gave it a lash against New Zealand to give the Murrayfield faithful a liftScottish feelgood factorOkay, it was an under strength side put out by the All Blacks, but Scotland played with enough vim and vigour to suggest Vern Cotter is making positive steps with his squad. Cotter has kept things simple, and engendered belief in his players, and with Tommy Seymour and Greig Laidlaw, in particular, shining under the former Clermont head coach. With a rabid Murrayfield crowd behind them, there are building blocks for progress in the Six Nations.Sinners After another fascinating weekend of international action, we take a look at who’s up for the Oscars and who’s up for a Golden Raspberries But the Exiles have also managed their situation poorly, and letting go the team that got them into the top tier has been biggest problem this season. Twenty-odd new signings won’t gel overnight, and their results have proved this. They’ve failed to score a point in two games so far this year, and have had more than 50 points scored against them in five games. Furthermore, you can rest assured that the players they have got this season, like Olly Barkley, Chris Hala’ufia and Piri Weepu, won’t be sticking around if they drop back down to the Championship, and where will that leave the club then?Crushed: London Welsh shipped 11 tries to Wasps in what is becoming a shocking seasonTo read RW’s verdict on England’s midfield problem, check out the December issue of Rugby World – in shops now!

San Antonio Four: Falsely convicted lesbians exonerated

first_imgSan Antonio Four with Gloria Rubac (right), April 2016.Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh and Anna Vasquez, four working-class, self-identified Chicana lesbians from San Antonio, have fought for two decades to prove they were innocent of their 1994 conviction for rape. At 9:01 a.m. on Nov. 23, they were formally and fully exonerated by Texas’s highest criminal court, which declared the four women “have unquestionably established that they are innocent.”In 1994, Ramirez’s two young nieces accused the women of “gang-raping” them. Ramirez, a fast food worker, often babysat the girls for her sister, and the other three women occasionally helped her with the 7- and 9-year-olds. What really happened was the father of the girls convinced them to tell his made-up story about rape because he was trying to get custody from their mother, Ramirez’s sister. Subsequently, the women were convicted in a trial whipped up by the most outrageous kind of bigotry, filled with false accusations of them being “witches” and conducting “satanic lesbian rituals.”The women spent from 13 to 17 years in prison until the Innocence Project of Texas took up their appeals. In 2012 one of the nieces, who is now 25 and a mother herself, told the project that she had lied, that her father made up the story and the girls went along with it. The project was also able to discredit the medical evidence, using new scientific techniques.Now the four women can begin to rebuild their lives. On their release from prison in 2013, the four women had to register as sex offenders. They are still working on reestablishing relationships with family and children. Ramirez had given birth only three days before she was arrested in 1994. “My son was only two when I went to prison, and now he’s getting ready to go to college. I didn’t ever see him for 17 years,” Ramirez told media after the exoneration. Mayhugh had two young children. A film about the case, “Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four,” made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last April and has been aired on television.The women’s attorneys will file the paperwork with the state of Texas for compensation: $80,000 for every year wrongfully incarcerated. Though each woman should receive over $1 million, no amount will ever make up for the lost years, the children raised without their mothers, or the racist and homophobic terror put upon each of these four women, their partners and friends, and their families.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Anti-war April 14-15: Why we march

first_imgSpringAction 2018, a significant coalition of hundreds of progressive groups, has been mobilizing for anti-war demonstrations across the U.S. on April 14-15. Its appeal calls for an end to all U.S. wars and militarism along with fighting white supremacy at home and defending immigrant rights, as well as protecting the environment.Radio host Mimi Rosenberg invited three of the New York based organizers of these demonstrations on her April 4 Morning Show on Pacifica Radio 99.5 FM, WBAI.org, to discuss these protests on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.The following are excerpts from the comments Kayla Popuchet, a Haitian-Peruvian student activist; Jose Monzon, a Black anti-war activist and member of Black Alliance for Peace; and Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center and member of the United National Antiwar Coalition, made on the show.Rosenberg: “You cannot remain silent,” say our next guests, when faced with the extreme militarists who have just joined the Trump administration, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, calling for war on Iran and north Korea and new attacks on Palestine. What are the motivators for the “End U.S. Wars” action?Popuchet: A call to end U.S. violence against oppressed people of the world, to end the U.S. putting interest in “resources” over people, and to draw the connection between U.S. militarism against oppressed nations, and the way the government treats our own people. The U.S. gives millions of dollars to Israel, where fascist IDF [Israeli Defense Forces] troops treat Palestinians as subhuman, the same way the NYPD [New York Police Department] treats people of color. The NYPD was trained by the Israeli forces.A couple of weeks ago, we leafleted at the March for Our Lives about the April 15 action and also about the killing of Stephon Clark by police, to draw the connection that people are dying by U.S. gun violence in Iraq, Yemen, Palestine, the same way that people are dying in the streets of Brooklyn and Sacramento and Ferguson.Monzon: For me, a primary motivator has been [King’s] anti-war position, which has been a largely forgotten part of his legacy. It is no coincidence he was murdered the year after his “Beyond Vietnam” speech and at the same time he was organizing with sanitation workers.To me, 50 years later, things are largely the same. Most of our tax dollars go to U.S. wars of aggression against poor people of color abroad while at the same time [the U.S.] is cutting programs for working people and people of color here at home. To me, we are living King’s famous quote that every bomb dropped in Vietnam explodes here at home in the form of less services for everyone.Rosenberg: How do you see mobilization around anti-war, anti-imperialist, anti-globalization, against racist oppression with the youth community?Monzon: We went to the March for Our Lives [on March 24] and gave out a lot of material on anti-war actions, Black Lives Matter, and people were very receptive. I think that even though the motivating factor has been opposition to personal “gun violence,” I think that there is a heightened sense of a need to oppose militarism and the assaults on marginalized people in this country.I think the way to mobilize and link it for people is really to say: “Look, a large part of the reason why we don’t have services here at home and that there is a lack of education and health across the board is that so much money that should be going to creating a more equitable society here is being spent to destroy other nations abroad.”Popuchet: My generation of youth, we are fighting back against the terrorism that threatens us. Being an oppressed person, I walk through the streets being nervous about the police, and that’s the way people in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq have felt their entire lives, because of my own government.Rosenberg: What are the demands being raised at the anti-war demonstrations on April 15?Popuchet: We oppose sanctions by the U.S. government because those kill people. We oppose U.S. nuclear threats. We oppose U.S. involvement in elections [in other countries]. Just look at what they did to my country in Latin America. We are opposing U.S. funding fascist states such as Israel and we also oppose the state violence that happens within our own borders.Monzon: We are saying fund human needs and not endless war. So instead of spending money to destroy nations, let’s spend money to provide services here at home like universal health care and education.Rosenberg: How do you see a way to move beyond a reactive strategy, to a more permanent solution to implement the goals you are stating?Monzon: A big part of the strategy needs to be a revitalization of the anti-war movement. We can see that other movements have revived in the last few years in the Occupy movement, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo. If we can rebuild opposition to U.S. war, similar to the Vietnam era, if we can rebuild that movement, that will propel us forward.Popuchet: The NRA [National Rifle Association] is the product of a larger system. If we can build consciousness about that, as part of the anti-war movement, we can apply that to any type of U.S.-foreign interaction. The U.S. is beating the war drums against Russia, against the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea], while at the same time deploying more troops into the Black Sea area and Eastern Europe. If that’s not building and gearing up for a war, I don’t know what is.Flounders: Thanks so much for this program and particularly on this day for Martin Luther King Jr., who made these links 50 years ago, and paid the price. The April 14-15 rallies are organized by a large coalition, so we are expecting an important mobilization in cities around the U.S.Here in New York City, on April 15, we rally at 2 p.m. at Herald Square, 34th Street and 6th Avenue, and then we march to Trump Tower. At www.springaction2018.org you will see a list of hundreds of endorsers, a broad spectrum of the U.S. political movement that doesn’t always come together, but that has now united to oppose all U.S. wars, sanctions, coups, and the escalating attacks, repression, racism and cutbacks at home.Monzon: People should come out on April 14-15, thinking of the increased U.S. war mobilizations, remembering that the U.S. has the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons in the world. There is a real potential to endanger all life on the planet. This is a fight for our lives.Popuchet: For the sake of oppressed peoples internationally, there needs to be a revival of the anti-war movement. People here in the U.S. need to come out on April 14-15 to show their solidarity with the people who the U.S. has disenfranchised and marginalized. And not only for them, but also for the disenfranchised within the U.S., we need to stand together and call for an end to the violence, because we know the U.S. government is not going to do that.Rosenberg: We’ve got to build that mass national movement, for people’s power. Let’s get to that demonstration.For more information, see springaction2018.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
