Scotland and England have reached the quarter-finals of every World Cup to date, but Wales have missed out on the last eight three timesSix World Cups and only one victor from the northern hemisphere – England’s nail-biting defeat of Australia in 2003 bringing ‘Bill’ to Europe for the first, and to date only, time since the inaugural tournament in 1987.Most pundits have predicted that the 2011 title will be going to one of either New Zealand, Australia or South Africa, with few people giving a Six Nations side much of a chance of repeating England’s success in Sydney eight years ago. England, as they did in the 1991, 1995 and 2003 World Cups, arrive at the tournament as reigning Six Nations champions, but with a young side still on a steep learning curve. As for Scotland and Wales, neither country enjoyed a particularly successful Six Nations and both will want to improve on their displays at the 2007 World Cup in France.Rugby World sat down with three of the stars from England, Wales and Scotland – Lewis Moody, Lee Byrne and Sean Lamont – shortly before they flew out to New Zealand to discuss all things World Cup, from pressure to performance to porridge! Here’s what the home nations trio had to say…RUGBY WORLD: What is your earliest World Cup memory?Lewis Moody: England in the final of the 1991 World Cup. I would have been 13 and I didn’t watch much rugby as a kid – I preferred playing – but in 1991 the World Cup was in England and they got to the final against Australia. It was a big thing and I remember watching us lose.Sean Lamont: The 1995 World Cup in South Africa with Jonah Lomu and his try for the All Blacks against Scotland in the quarter-final.RW: You’ve all played in New Zealand before – what’s it like? Lee Byrne: It’s a lot like playing in Wales as far as the weather goes! I played there last year and it was similar to Wales in many respects. New Zealanders are rugby mad and there’s a great atmosphere at matches. I think it helps if you’ve been to New Zealand as a player before because it gives you an idea of what to expect.Sean Lamont: My first cap was in New Zealand, but it was actually against Samoa. We played them in a one-off Test at Wellington in 2004. I couldn’t tell you if a lot of Kiwis turned up to watch – I had other things on my mind as it was my first cap. We won so at least I can say I won a Test in New Zealand!Lewis Moody: I’ve been to New Zealand twice to play rugby, and neither brought happy memories. The first time was with England in 1998 (the so-called ‘Tour of Hell’) but I didn’t play in either Test. Then I went there with the Lions in 2005. It wasn’t a great experience because we lost the series 3-0, but it was certainly eye-opening to see just how obsessed the country is with rugby and how they appreciate the game. From the moment you enter the arrivals hall at the airport it’s rugby, rugby, rugby. Walk down the street and the shops are decked out in flags and it’s hard to escape. It’s like England’s attitude to football. Lewis Moody, Lee Byrne, Sean Lamont LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS RW: Which player from a previous World Cup would you like to play alongside in New Zealand? Sean Lamont: Jonah Lomu.Lee Byrne: Scott Gibbs.Lewis Moody: I was thinking of Jonah. I’ll say Peter Winterbottom.This article appeared in the October 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UKlast_img read more

Please enter your email address here InspirationBy Charles TowneEditor’s Note: AND DEATH, NOR HURT, NOR SICKNESS WILL BE NO MORE, AMENPraise God the time is coming when there will be no more hurt, pain, or death.  Nature, as I have illustrated in my last two articles, can be harsh, cruel, even brutal. This is not playing out according to Papa God’s great plan. He wants all nature, all of creation, everything to be perfect in His will.  When we are living our lives according to His divine will, in peace and perfect harmony and evil once and for all is destroyed and the order for eternity is love, then we will become friends to all mankind and true friends and children of God. * * * * *The time is mid-summer and the year is 2002 A.D.The place is somewhere in that no vast man’s land of lakes and wilderness where Minnesota and Canada indistinctly merge. The black bear waits patiently. Eight years old and in his prime, he is exceptionally large for his kind.  At nearly 800 pounds he is considerably larger than most grizzlies.He lies there watching the small herd of elk. They are as yet unaware of his presence as they continue to feed in his direction.  The slight breeze is in his favor and as he waits with a patience born of experience he is nearly invisible, his bulk melding and blending with his surroundings.Time is not to be measured by minutes or hours but by hunger and need.  There are six elk, two cows with their calves, and a mature bull. The sixth animal is a young bull, a yearling that stays on the edge of the herd.Prey animals usually fall into three categories of vulnerability. The first is the very young, the second is the very old, and the third is the injured, the sick or infirm.  For the sake of our story, there is another category, a fourth.  It is to this last group that the young bull elk belongs.  The fourth category is the careless and it must be remembered that the careless seldom live to a ripe old age. Wild herbivores must be constantly alert for danger, thus they feed for brief stretches, frequently lifting their heads to scrutinize their surroundings, alert for any potential danger. The young bull had grown fat and in his youth, he had become complacent.  He fed on the tender grasses, seldom lifting his head, unaware that his feeding would soon place him within range of the black bear’s attack.Almost imperceptibly, catlike, the bear draws his hind legs under his body, his rear claws digging into the soil for purchase.  His head drops low as he stares intently at his prey.  The moment arrives all too soon for the young bull elk.  Powerful legs propel the bear through the scant space in blinding speed.  Nothing can save the young bull.   The bear seizes the elk with its forepaws, claws tearing at flesh as it endeavors to bite into the animal’s neck.  In a flurry of action the elk, eyes rolling in terror goes down under the terrible weight of the bear.  Almost as a dying reflex, the elk strikes out with a rear foot.  Dazed from that last reflexive kick of the dying elk the bear stands over his prey. He is unaware of just how badly he is injured until he attempts to feed on the still-warm carcass and finds it impossible.  The elk’s kick, striking with the force of a sledgehammer had shattered the big bear’s lower jaw.   Unable to eat and in constant pain, the bear lays near his kill protecting it from scavengers.  Due to the terrible pain, he cannot rest, thus he paces and pads around the dead elk driving away the foxes and ravens in a murderous rage.Late in the third day a pack of wolves catches the scent of the ripening elk and following the scent trail they soon come within sight of the bear standing over the elk.  At any other time, a bear would surrender its prey to the wolf pack but this is not just any bear.  There are nine animals in the wolf pack as they converge on the bear.  One, a bold animal, advances.  It senses weakness.  The wolf pack circles the bear and the dead elk.  When behind the bear the wolf suddenly launches itself and its jaws close in a slashing movement tearing the bears hide.The bear, enraged turns incredibly fast for such a large animal, its paw, claws extended miss the wolf by a narrow margin as it leaps back.  Grinning its wolfish grin the wolf again starts the circling motion.  The other wolves, emboldened by their fellow’s success moved closer, watching the wolf as it prepared to make another attack.  It leaped, almost faster than the eye could follow, jaws agape!  But the wolf was not as fast as the bear.  The great beast, roaring in fury, struck while the wolf was yet in the air.There was a single cry; the cry of a dying animal, and the wolf was thrown through the air a score of paces to fall to the ground, dead, from a crushed chest and a broken spine.  The life had been struck from it with that one terrible blow.  Now wary, realizing that the great one was not ready to yield to the inevitable, the wolf pack fell upon the dead wolf and within minutes it was gone.   The pack leaves; they note the non-typical aggressive behavior and sense that all is not well with the bear.  Avoiding any more loss to their pack they leave, but their time will come.   It is only with great difficulty that the bear is able to swallow a little water at a nearby stream, not nearly satisfying his terrible thirst.  He also realizes his vulnerability as well as what must happen.With each movement the shattered bones in the bears jaw lacerate and tear the tender flesh.  Time passes but the agony does not.  By the end of that first week blood poisoning has set in.  By the middle of the second week the rotting carcass of the elk is being scavenged by ravens as well as several foxes.  The great bear no longer paces, nor does he endeavor to chase the scavengers from the elk.  No longer can his moans of agony be heard for he also is dead, a victim of starvation and blood poisoning.   Indiscriminate in their eating habits the worms feed from below while the maggots are busy above.  Two adult black bears move in to feed on the rotting flesh, up until now they have been kept away by the diligence of the big bear but now he is just so much meat.Soon the wolf pack returns and they remain for nearly a week, driving the other carrion-eaters away, even the black bears.  It is not long before all that remains is a confused scattering of bones and the scat that remains from the animals that have been feeding there.  The mice scavenge the few remaining scraps of meat and bits of cartilage that remain while a trio of porcupines gnaw at the bones.And next year and the next and the year after, the grass will grow lush and green in the rich soil of this place and the elk will find the grass sweet and, just perhaps, there will be another bear to greet them.Dear Heavenly Father draw near to each of us that the evil that men do they will do no more.  May Papa God bless each of us that evil will be no more. Give us great peace and harmony that our lives will resonate with golden tones and our lives will be instruments to his glory.  We love you Father. In Jesus’ love may we always treat your children with loving kindness. This old world, contrary to your divine plan, is so full of strife so help each of us so that each of our lives will resound to the world with a glory song of your great love.  May our prayers be as sweet incense to you o Holy God, Amen.

Después de votar contra austeridad/Masas griegas esperan cambios

June 15, 2021

first_imgEl nuevo gobierno izquierdista socialdemócrata del partido Syriza llegó al poder en Grecia con un programa anti-austeridad el 25 de enero. El Partido apuntó contra los fuertes recortes presupuestarios y privatizaciones neoliberales impuestos por la “Troika” – El FMI, el Banco Central Europeo y la Comisión Europea.El nuevo gobierno inmediatamente tomó medidas concretas contra el programa de austeridad impuesto por los bancos. Como lo expresara el noticiero británico Guardian, en su edición del 28 de enero: “Una por una [medidas de austeridad] se deshicieron, estilo blitzkrieg, sin piedad, con eficiencia.“Primero fueron removidas las barricadas frente al Parlamento griego. Luego se anunció que los planes de privatización fueron detenidos y las pensiones reintegradas. Y después llegó la noticia de la reintroducción del salario mínimo mensual de €751. …“Después de eso, los ministros anunciaron más medidas: eliminación del pago por recetas y visitas al hospital, restauración de los convenios colectivos de trabajo, la recontratación de trabajadores despedidos en el sector público, la concesión de ciudadanía a los hijos de migrantes nacidos y criados en Grecia”.Las medidas que Syriza anunció relativas al fin de la privatización y la restauración del nivel de vida de las/os trabajadores se estima que costará €13,2 mil millones. A pesar de que Grecia le debe a la Troika €240 mil millones, el gobierno Syriza no pidió permiso para romper el pacto de austeridad, que estas medidas seguramente hacen. (A partir del 2 de febrero, 1 euro equivale a $1,13)Estos actos enviaron una ola de esperanza a las masas y ondas de choque a las juntas del capital financiero.Austeridad para las masas = ayuda para banquerosGobiernos anteriores habían planeado recaudar fondos mediante la venta a capitalistas y constructores privados de los dos puertos más grandes de Grecia, varios aeropuertos, su compañía eléctrica, una refinería y otras instalaciones públicas, junto a despidos y recortes en los salarios, pensiones y beneficios de salud de las/os trabajadores. Todo esto se planeaba hacer para pagar los préstamos bancarios realizados a los gobiernos capitalistas anteriores.Vale la pena señalar que el gobierno griego no es realmente soberano. No tiene ningún control sobre su moneda, una función vital de cualquier Estado capitalista. El control de la moneda se encuentra en Frankfurt.Los antecedentes de la victoria electoral de Syriza son años de dificultades económicas que produjeron años de lucha de masas en las calles y lugares de trabajo.Grecia en la depresiónGrecia ha estado en depresión por los últimos cinco años, con la tasa oficial de desempleo en 25 por ciento, un 50 por ciento de desempleo juvenil y se estima que la mitad de la población vive en extrema pobreza. El pueblo se ha visto obligado a buscar comida y artículos domésticos en los basureros, leña y alimentos en los bosques y a subsistir de los bancos de alimentos que han sido creados en pueblos y ciudades.Este es el resultado de la crisis financiera global capitalista. Pero se ve agravada por el hecho de que Grecia ha estado en las garras depredadoras de los banqueros europeos, encabezados por los alemanes y el gobierno de Angela Merkel, con el apoyo de toda la entidad bancaria del continente.Años de lucha contra la austeridadPero ha habido una lucha de resistencia. Manifestaciones masivas contra la austeridad han sacudido a Grecia desde el 5 de mayo del 2010, cuando dos personas murieron.Desde mayo a julio del 2011, los “indignados” (término originario de España) ocuparon plazas en toda Grecia, y el 5 de junio de ese año 500.000 personas se reunieron frente al Parlamento griego. El movimiento fue violentamente reprimido por la policía.El 12 de febrero del 2012, unas 500.000 personas se manifestaron frente al Parlamento. El 9 de junio de ese año, hubo una huelga general de 24 horas contra la austeridad. El 17 de noviembre de 2014, decenas de miles se manifestaron en el aniversario de la caída de la dictadura griega en 1974. La manifestación se convirtió en una contra la austeridad.A través de los años se han producido numerosas manifestaciones masivas, sentadas, ocupaciones y huelgas. Hubo dos huelgas generales en el 2014, en abril y noviembre. Muchas fueron convocadas por el Partido Comunista de Grecia, que tiene una larga historia de lucha de clases y resistencia militante y una fuerte base en la clase obrera organizada. La base de Syriza es más general, entre las/os trabajadores no organizados, jóvenes y pequeños negociantes empobrecidas/os. También ha tenido logros entre la sufrida población rural.Este es el trasfondo de la victoria electoral de Syriza. Las manifestaciones, a pesar de su frecuencia y fuerza, no fueron capaces de obligar al establecimiento político griego a retroceder las medidas de austeridad. Los partidos y los políticos de los dos partidos principales son herramientas de banqueros, constructores, navieros y los grandes medios de comunicación. La resistencia de las masas hasta ahora ha sido incapaz de poner fin a la cruel asfixia económica.Así que las masas griegas optaron por una solución parlamentaria, votando contra los partidos capitalistas tradicionales y votando por Syriza.Contradicción de Syriza: intentar un ‘nuevo trato’Pero al ganar el puesto, Syriza ahora se enfrenta a una enorme contradicción. Por un lado, el liderazgo, dirigido por Alexis Tsipras, ha desafiado la austeridad. Pero terminar con la austeridad requiere fondos. Por otra parte, el capital financiero europeo tiene el control de los fondos; fueron los que impusieron la austeridad en primer lugar y ahora están tomando una línea dura sobre cualquier forma de aliviar la deuda. Esto es base para la lucha futura.El gobierno de Syriza está tratando de negociar un “nuevo trato” con los bancos – para dar a Grecia un respiro de la austeridad y de un duro calendario de pagos para que la economía crezca.Hay dos partes en sus demandas. La primera y más importante es que la deuda de Grecia se reduzca a la mitad. La segunda es tratar de aflojar el régimen de pago— tasas de interés más bajas, más tiempo para pagar, atar el pago al crecimiento económico y así sucesivamente. Tanto el ministro de finanzas Varoufakis y el primer ministro Tsipras han dicho que tienen la intención de honrar la deuda, pero quieren que el monto y las condiciones de pago sean modificadas.Horas después de la victoria de Syriza, la presidenta de Alemania, Angela Merkel descartó cualquier reducción de la deuda. El ministro de finanzas alemán Wolfgang Schäuble advirtió a Grecia sobre sus tácticas de negociación sobre la cancelación de la deuda. En una entrevista con el Guardian de Londres el 30 de enero, Christine Lagarde, directora del FMI, dijo que es “tiempo de pago” para Grecia y “los padres deben pagar sus impuestos”.La estrategia de Syriza es utilizar el antagonismo contra el gobierno de Merkel para ganarse la simpatía de otras capitales europeas. Varoufakis inmediatamente fue a París para exponer el caso. El ministro de finanzas de Francia dijo que simpatizaba con Grecia sobre la cuestión de aflojar las condiciones de pago de préstamos – pero descartó cualquier alivio de la deuda.Varoufakis piensa hacer lo mismo en Roma y Londres.Luchar en las calles para cancelar la deudaMientras esta lucha se mantenga dentro de los límites financieros de los banqueros, tratando de negociar para aflojar las cadenas sobre el cuello del pueblo, los banqueros tendrán ventaja abrumadora.Esto debe convertirse en una lucha política de masas contra la deuda. Para que Syriza tenga alguna influencia en la mesa de negociaciones, la cancelación de la deuda debe convertirse en un grito de guerra en las calles y los lugares de trabajo. Todas las fuerzas en Grecia que han se han manifestado contra la austeridad y sufrido bajo sus duras condiciones, deben movilizarse para salir a las calles y enviar un mensaje claro a los banqueros. Los financieros necesitan saber que a menos que cancelen la deuda, estarán tratando no sólo con argumentos acerca de las cuestiones contables y financieras, sino con una amenaza a su propio sistema.Nadie debe abstenerse de participar activamente en esta lucha, independientemente de las diferencias históricas o actuales. Las masas deben estar imbuidas con la idea de que la deuda es ilegítima. Por ejemplo, del rescate original recibido de la Troika por €227 mil millones en 2010, sólo €27 mil millones fueron al gobierno griego para cubrir sus gastos. El resto, €200 millones, fueron a los bancos en repago de préstamos, rescates, pagos de intereses, etc. Mientras tanto, las/os trabajadores griegos perdían sus puestos de trabajo y servicios, y se hundía en una pobreza a nivel de depresión como condición de los préstamos.El capital financiero es siempre agresivo y voraz cuando se trata de extraer el dinero del pueblo. El capital financiero alemán es notoriamente agresivo e intransigente. De hecho, el capital financiero alemán es el poder aventurero que provocó dos guerras mundiales. Ahora, en lugar de enviar tanques al sur de Europa, ellos y sus colegas banqueros están enviando cobradores de deudas para aplastar al pueblo.Esta lucha no se debe perder. Nadie puede darse el lujo de hacerse a un lado. Fascistas como el Amanecer Dorado, están esperando para ver si las masas quedan abandonadas. Entonces Amanecer Dorado y la derecha pueden moverse para sacar provecho del sufrimiento y movilizar las fuerzas del fascismo y pogromos antiinmigrantes.Apertura para la izquierda revolucionariaRazones más que suficientes para que la izquierda, especialmente la revolucionaria, deba estar en la vanguardia de la lucha y ganar a las masas. Si Syriza falla o sucumbe a la presión imperialista para aplicar austeridad, entonces la izquierda debe estar preparada para intervenir y dar liderazgo.Syriza, para obtener una mayoría parlamentaria, ha hecho una desagradable alianza con el antiinmigrante y homofóbico Partido derechista de la Independencia Griega. A este partido se le ha dado la dirección del Ministerio de Defensa, lo que es extremadamente peligroso. El ejército griego históricamente tiene simpatías fascistas. Esta posición da a los militares un puesto de escucha en las reuniones del gabinete Syriza.Sería mucho mejor, si sin unirse al gobierno, el Partido Comunista de Grecia y otros partidos de izquierda pudieran conjurar un frente unido para votar por auténticas medidas contra la austeridad en el Parlamento, así como la unidad en las calles. Entonces Syriza se aseguraría de una mayoría parlamentaria en su programa anti-austeridad, aunque gobierne como minoritario. Entonces no tendría que confiar en el Partido de la Independencia.Por otro lado, es muy alentador que el nuevo partido anti-austeridad Podemos en España, fuera capaz de reunir a varios cientos de miles de personas en Madrid a raíz de la victoria electoral de Syriza. Esto apunta hacia la necesidad de ampliar la lucha por todo el sur de Europa, así como Irlanda—en todas partes donde la clase obrera y la población estén viviendo en un estado de esclavitud de deuda a los bancos.Los banqueros han estado amenazando al pueblo griego con quitarles de la eurozona si el gobierno incumple o viola los acuerdos. Tienen la esperanza de que la amenaza de un caos financiero y ruina económica obligue a todos a ponerse de nuevo en línea.Pero si Grecia tiene que salir de la zona euro—si los banqueros tratan de sumir al país en un estado de desarticulación y estrangulación económica — sería la señal para que la clase obrera combata la crisis tomando control de la economía y reorganizarla sobre bases socialistas.A la larga, una lucha internacional para derrocar totalmente al capital es la única forma permanente de salir de la crisis actual.

RSF urges Ortega to end offensive against independent media

June 12, 2021

first_img C.F Chamorro durante la ocupación policial del ‘Confidencial’ Fuente YANCUIC Police have been surrounding the offices of the news website Confidencial and the TV channels Esta Semana and Esta Noche since 14 December, a day after a police unit stormed in without a warrant, removed computers and accounting files, and then ransacked the premises.“We call on the authorities to immediately return the confiscated equipment and material and to allow unrestricted use of the premises that house El Confidencial and other media outlets,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“The battle being waged by the Nicaraguan government against the independent media has taken a disturbing turn. We call on President Daniel Ortega to adhere strictly to Nicaragua’s international obligations, which means guaranteeing and protecting press freedom.”Chamorro went to police headquarters on 15 December to ask to see the warrant justifying the confiscations and to ask how long the police intended to remain outside his media outlets. But he was humiliated and ejected by riot police, without obtaining the least response.One of Nicaragua’s best known and respected journalists, Chamorro is very critical of the government headed by Ortega and his wife, Rosario Murillo. A member of the ruling Sandinista Front in the 1980s, when he edited the newspaper Barricada, he has distanced himself from the Sandinistas since the early 1990s and is now often targeted by the government.The seizure of Chamorro’s media outlets was preceded on 12 December by a government decision annulling the legal status of nine Nicaraguan NGOs, most of them human rights NGOs.

Alijani was sentenced to four years in prison, Hoda Saber to five-and-a-half years and Taghi Rahmani to seven years. “Concealment and denial of justice continue to characterise detentions and trials as exemplified by these three cases,” said Reporters Without Borders.These three journalists, unfairly imprisoned for nearly a year, have been condemned on appeal without being able to attend their own trials,” it said. “This at a time when the head of the Iranian judiciary Mahmud Hashemi Shahrudi, announces steps to get Iranian law respected, in particular rights of accused to have a lawyer and a fair trial and as parliament on 6 May adopted a law that bans torture and guarantees the rights of citizens, “Everything suggests that judicial authorities are looking for a pretext to justify this arbitrary imprisonment, sowing the utmost confusion over procedures and grounds for detention. We demand the release of these journalists,” said the international press freedom organisation.Background:- At the end of a closed-doors trial on 10 May 2003, Taghi Rahmani was sentenced to 11 years in prison and ten years of loss of civil rights, Reza Alijani to six years in prison and ten years loss of civil rights and Hoda Saber to ten years in prison and ten years of loss of civil rights.

Until 30 October they were kept in solitary confinement. Their lawyers had no access to their files and their families could not make regular visits.- On 1st May 2004 Reza Alijani found out that their appeal had been heard.
