England vs Australia 1995 World Cup Quarter Final

first_imgSaturday Nov 15, 2008 England vs Australia 1995 World Cup Quarter Final Australia take on England at Twickenham this afternoon in what should be yet another fiercely contested battle between the two rugby powerhouses. Today we’re going to take a look back to their famous 1995 RWC Quarter Final in South Africa.The match was not a running spectacle, but was packed with tension as it went right down to the final kick. England roared into the game as the stronger side, their pack proving too powerful for their Australian counterparts in the opening 40 minutes.Michael Lynagh and Rob Andrew both managed two penalties apiece in the half, but it was Tony Underwood’s sprint for the try which proved the major defining point between both sides.When England got a sniff from a turnover, the ball was spread wide fast, landing in the hands of Underwood Jnr, who sprinted down the right wing and touched down for a great try.Damian Smith later chased high bomb, gathered midair, and touched down for a brilliant try for the Wallabies. From then on, the game was all about the forward confrontation and the boots of Lynagh and Andrew. The pair matched each other kick for kick but neither side could be separated as the full 80 minutes expired with the scores at 22-22.Into extra time it went, and as England got within sniffing distance, Dewi Morris swept a superb pass to Rob Andrew who in turn unleashed a perfect drop-kick from 45 metres.It was a famous 25-22 win for England, beating Australia outside of the Northern Hemisphere for the first time.

The architecture of Maison Blanc, a home for a family of five in a leafy inner-city suburb of Adelaide, South Australia, is an exploration of the misplaced notion of minimalist architecture as being an exercise in reduction. When labelled a minimalist, contemporary Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza responded by saying he is about ‘more with less’ as opposed to the ‘less is more’ manifesto of early Modernism. Like a carefully written poem, Maison Blanc is simultaneously simple, generous, abstract and rich.The existing sandstone villa has been reconfigured and reconsidered to be meaningfully integrated into the new design. With an unusual orientation and convoluted existing floorplan, the old house required a radical rethink of the existing layout to achieve better access to views, natural light and spatial organisation.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sam NoonanNew work involved establishing the interior’s private and public zones, relocating the living areas to maximise views and a connection to external spaces, as well as creating complementary service areas and adding a pool and tennis court. The resulting new internal spaces have been designed in sympathy with the scale and elegance of the existing home, but are stripped back to enable clear catchment of light and views with high focus clarity.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanSave this picture!© Sam NoonanThe architecture of the new work is sculptural and seamless, and detailing decisions throughout the project reinforce a stereotomic macros approach. Windows are frameless, doors slide in large planar elements, and walls and ceilings are treated continuously to create a carefully sculpted form. Often the front rooms of older homes are gloomy, museum-like spaces. However, a renovation makes high value use of all the older rooms to integrate them with the new design. The beauty of these large-scale historic spaces has enabled them to be adapted as a glorious bedroom, ensuite, formal living room and a combined laundry and pantry.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Sam NoonanThe design of Maison Blanc started with a sketch of a view to a small garden outside the study. This sketch simultaneously organised artwork, garden and functional space. It drove the architectural direction that integrated landscape and interior into a legible whole.

Brexit and the migration/refugee humanitarian crisis

first_imgTeresa GutierrezWW photo: Brenda RyanThe recent Brexit vote in Europe was closely tied to the issue of migrants and refugees.  Mirrored by the racist, demagogic campaign of Donald Trump here in the U.S., the campaign to “Leave” the European Union was carried out within an anti-immigrant context. With capitalism at a dead end, racist scapegoating has become a priority for the capitalists in order to divert attention from the economic crisis.This is shameful and merits an immediate, worldwide, working-class response. Why? Because the crisis of the forced migration of workers is of epic proportions.It is a massive humanitarian crisis.  It is genocidal, a crisis that was created by the bloody hands of U.S. and British imperialism. This is not just an issue of migrants but of refugees and workers and should be treated accordingly.This massive displacement, this gigantic wave of forced migration primarily from the Middle East, Africa and Asia to Europe and elsewhere, has resulted in the largest dislocation of humanity since World War II.  That is a stunning fact.This amounts to World War III. That the working-class and progressive movement in Britain could not stay the hand of this war is one thing; to be sucked into the ideology of the right wing is another.This bodes ill for the working-class movement, not only in Europe but in the U.S. as well.“Leave the EU” and “Build the Wall” are two sides of the same coin: divide and conquer the multinational working class with the issue of immigration.War, sanctions and austerity caused the refugee crisisHow repulsive of our enemies to use the issue of forced migration as an answer to the ravishing effects of the austerity measures sweeping Europe.  The very forces that are laying off workers in London, Detroit, Khartoum, Mexico City or Dhaka are the very forces that are driving workers to leave their homelands.It is U.S. and British and NATO imperialist wars of regime change in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan and so on that are forcing workers to leave in the first place.Those wars include starvation sanctions and planned destabilizations.Take Libya. This country had once been a state where its resources, the very oil the corporations go to war for, had been nationalized and helped give Libya the highest standard of living in Africa.It was months of bombing as well as the assassination of its leadership — Gaddafi in 2011 — that devastated Libya.  Imperialism destroyed the entire infrastructure of this country in one fell swoop.And now the European elite turns its back on the very people it bombed, after creating the very conditions that forced those people to leave.We have all seen the pictures published by the capitalist media, the painful pictures of waves of migrants at sea, of drowned children, of boats capsized with people who never make it, whose families back home will never know what happened to them.Rarely are these pictures accompanied by admissions of what caused this migration.In reality, the vast majority of the people in the pictures are not migrants at all.  They are refugees and should be accorded the rights of refugees, including, according to the United Nations, the number one right of safe asylum.A few months ago, the world witnessed the horror of mass dislocation. Refugees’ dire conditions worsened when the U.N. Food Program exhausted its funds and cut aid to hundreds of thousands that were living in miserable refugee camps in Jordan, Turkey and Iraq.The U.N. agency needed $236 million to keep the program funded through November 2015. Yet, the U.S. has spent much more than that on wars in Syria and Afghanistan. According to, U.S. taxpayers have paid, every hour since 2001, a whopping $8.36 million for its wars!That is why Syria today has the highest number of people displaced by war.Syrians have been forced to leave in record numbers because the Pentagon and NATO targeted civilian infrastructure, irrigation, hospitals, schools, water purification and local industries.U.S. and NATO sanctions have been imposed on Syria since of 2010.  And this was followed by the arming and financing of mercenary forces. This war has destroyed a formerly prosperous country where the population had modern infrastructure, free, quality health care, and free education.Now, almost half of Syria’s 23 million people have been displaced.Furthermore, people from Western Africa are forced to leave after decades of International Monetary Fund structural adjustment policies. Even the IMF itself admitted that its schemes are “flawed, have increased inequality and [have] not … delivered economic growth,” all of which are, of course, utter euphemisms. (African independent June 24, 2016)Hidden casualties of warThe crisis of forced mass migration has many victims. Articles have been published about the tens of thousands of migrant children that are “missing” in Europe, purported victims of criminal gangs, an unspeakable tragedy. And that is a woefully conservative figure. (Politico May 3 2016).The Politico article stated: “The closure of European borders and lack of an effective strategy to cope with wave after wave of refugees … often leave unaccompanied minors crossing into Europe with nowhere to turn. And that makes them easy prey for smugglers and traffickers.”One can only imagine the unspeakable pain of a parent fearing that their child may have gotten caught up in the European sex trade.On July 1, the International Migrant Alliance distributed a statement from the World Council of Churches dated June 28, 2016.  As documentation of worldwide forced migration varies from source to source, and is conflictive, the WCC statement is important to publish.The statement said, “The world is in the midst of a historic crisis of forced displacement — of people obliged to leave their homes, communities and countries to escape conflict, persecution, repression, natural and human-made disasters, ecological degradation, or other situations that endanger their lives, freedom or livelihood.“During 2015 … displacement … surpassed all previous records, exceeding 65 million people — or one out of every 113 people on earth. Conflicts and insecurity in the Middle East — especially the tragically continuing war in Syria and in parts of Africa — have been major drivers of this exodus.“In the same year, more than a million people crossed the Mediterranean to Europe as refugees and migrants. More than 3,770 people perished during 2015 in the course of this hazardous crossing, and more than 2,850 more are thought to have been lost already so far this year.“In Central America … the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees stated that the number of asylum seekers from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador increased from 20,900 in 2012 to 109,800 in 2015.“These crises have demonstrated that, in today’s world, it is impossible to remain insulated in one’s own safety and comfort from the suffering experienced by such vast numbers of people seeking refuge. Closing one’s eyes and ears to the plight of the victims was never acceptable, and now it is no longer feasible. …“All too often, the response by governments and societies of countries in which suffering people have sought safe haven has been one of fear, rejection and exclusion. All too often, political actors have sought to galvanize public concern and to increase fear for political advantage. …“Longstanding and fundamental principles of international humanitarian law have been questioned and undermined, including the right of asylum — the fundamental principle that all people … are entitled to seek international protection regardless of … any criterion other than need.“This principle … is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948. The Refugee Convention was a collective international response to the suffering of — mostly European — refugees in the aftermath of the Second World War. The principles and obligations defined … are just as relevant and necessary in the context of the current global crisis as they were then in the post-World War II European refugee crisis.”How to answer Brexit and Trump?In light of this global humanitarian crisis, what should the working class and revolutionary movements consider in response?Here is a suggestion.  Build a global movement of solidarity that demands:U.S., NATO out of Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and everywhere!Reparations for Africa!Stop U.S. death funds in Central America and Mexico! U.S. out of Latin America! Cancel the debt of Puerto Rico!Demand refugee status for all the displaced from wars, climate change or economic violence!Build solidarity, not walls!Make December 18 “World Day of Migration” and June 20 “World Refugee Day,” global days of class solidarity!This article is based on a June 30 talk. Gutierrez is Workers World Party’s presidential campaign manager and co-coordinator of the New York May 1 Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Black, Brown, Indigenous girls’ lives matter

first_imgThe hashtag #MissingDCGirls, out of Washington, D.C., went viral on social media the week of March 27, dramatizing the special vulnerability of Black and Brown girls to violence and sexual exploitation.Racist bias about which girls’ lives matter shows up clearly in mainstream media. The photo of a missing blonde and blue-eyed girl, like JonBenét Ramsey, gets prime-time news coverage for months in 1997. But viewers never hear CNN mention the death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, a seven-year-old African-American girl killed when Detroit police invaded her home in 2010.Where are the “Amber Alerts” sent out when Black girls go missing? As one Twitter post exclaimed: “Can someone explain to me how [so many Black girls] go missing in 24 hours in D.C. and it’s not a goddamn news story?!?”The New York Times tried to play down the righteous furor that surfaced due to the hashtag, saying there was no “epidemic” of missing girls. (March 31)But according to the Black and Missing Foundation, Black children are 36.5 percent of all missing U.S. children. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children confirms this figure and also notes that missing Latinx children are 17 percent. Black people are only 12.5 percent of the U.S. population.That girls of color are half or more of the missing children is certain. That the missing include large numbers of trans and gender-nonconforming girls and children is surely also true.The Times tried to minimize the crisis by admitting the lives of Black and Latinx children are “often ignored by public officials.”But the fact is that children of color, including girls, are actively targeted by the racist policies of “public officials” — from policing the schools to pipelines to for-profit prisons, to collusion of cops with sex trafficking, to slashing cuts in public housing, social services, education.There is a centuries-long, racist U.S. record of “protecting” white women and girls to promote white supremacy, while covering up the untold number of crimes against the humanity of women and girls of color, from enslavement and peonage, rape and sexual abuse, to low-wage labor and daily disrespect.Predictably, there are calls for “more police” to solve the problem of missing children, including girls. But from the slave patrols of the 19th century to this day, the police exist to occupy, criminalize, control and terrorize Black, Brown and Indigenous communities in the U.S.And an epidemic of violence against women and girls of color rages across the occupied and colonized Americas. In Canada, according to government figures, over 1,000 Indigenous women and girls have been murdered or gone missing in the last 20 years, many of them teenagers. At the maquiladoras on the Mexican-U.S. border at Juarez, hundreds of Latinx young women and girls have been disappeared. So many are assumed dead that the term femicidio or femicide is used frequently these days.Capitalist fortunes and corporations have been built on the bodies and labor of girls and women of color — from the children they have birthed, from their labor in the fields and factories and fast-food restaurants to forced sex work on U.S. military bases. The racist, anti-woman U.S. state will not stop this exploitation, founded as it was on that very exploitation.In 1977, the Combahee River Collective, a group of Black, lesbian, socialist feminists, wrote of the struggle for the lives of Black women and girls: “We might use our position at the bottom … to make a clear leap into revolutionary action. If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free, since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all the systems of oppression.”Let us take up their challenge to “leap into revolutionary action” to defend the lives of girls and women of color everywhere!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Texas solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal

RWB supports Free Burma VJ Campaign

first_img RSF_en News The Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) news organisation is marking World Press Freedom Day on 3 May with the launch of a campaign to free its 17 jailed video journalists (VJs), all of whom are serving lengthy sentences in prisons across the country.The launch of the Free Burma VJ Campaign comes less than two months after Burma’s new government was sworn in, supposedly hailing the beginning of Burma’s transition to civilian rule. But the ongoing incarceration of journalists, who are among the nearly 2,100 political prisoners in Burma, and the absence of any evidence that the government is moving to free them are clear signs that little has changed since the ostensible end to military rule.“Burma’s new president declared his intention to build a ‘clean government’ – how can we judge a government as ‘clean’ when they continue to arrest journalists who relay the voices of the public and opposition?” said DVB’s Executive Director, Aye Chan Naing.Burma is widely recognised as having one of the world’s most repressive media environments, and consistently ranks at the tail end of global press freedom indexes. More than 25 media workers are behind bars in the country. Some, such as DVB reporter Hla Hla Win, are serving sentences of 27 years.Exiled Burmese news groups such as DVB feed off networks of undergrounds journalists inside the country. Their work is dangerous, but provides a crucial window into one of the world’s most hermetic states.“Censorship is one the main priorities of the regime,” said Aye Chan Naing. “They spend a lot of money controlling the media to get maximum impact from their own propaganda. Inevitably, independent journalists become their target.”In the past six months, two more DVB VJs have been jailed: 21-year-old Sithu Zeya was handed an eight-year sentence in December last year after police caught him photographing the aftermath of the in April 2010 grenade attacks in Rangoon. Under torture, Sithu Zeya confessed that his father, U Zeya, had led a team of VJs inside the country. U Zeya was arrested and sentenced in February this year to 13 years in prison. They join Ngwe Soe Lin, jailed for 13 years in 2009 for his role filming for the award-winning Channel 4 documentary, Orphans of Burma’s Cyclone, and Win Maw, a senior DVB reporter sentenced to 17 years.“The poor conditions of Burmese prisons are well known and we are very worried about their mental and physical wellbeing,” Aye Chan Naing said. “They should not be in prison in the first place. We call on the international community, particularly ASEAN leaders, to use every opportunity they have to demand the release of journalists in Burma.” The launch of this campaign was made possible by financial support of Reporters Without Borders and the European Union through the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR).See the campaign: Organisation May 3, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RWB supports Free Burma VJ Campaign May 26, 2021 Find out more May 31, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information to go furthercenter_img News RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Follow the news on Myanmar News US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture MyanmarAsia – Pacific Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific May 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Holden Honors Pasadena Holocaust Survivor at Capitol Ceremony

first_imgGovernment Holden Honors Pasadena Holocaust Survivor at Capitol Ceremony Published on Monday, April 13, 2015 | 3:16 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Assemblymember Chris Holden and Holocaust honoree, Ike Langholz of Pasadena.In a moving ceremony today at the State Capitol, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) recently honored Holocaust survivor Ike Langholz of Pasadena whose nightmarish journey through the Nazi occupation of Poland was recounted on the Assembly floor as part of Holocaust Remembrance Week.“I am honored to be able to share Ike Langholz’ story of survival in the face of incredible pain and suffering at the hands of the Nazis,” said Assemblymember Holden. “Ike lived through extreme persecution and horrific experiences during this agonizing dark history. The number of survivors is dwindling, so we are here today to raise awareness of these dark events and honor Ike for his courage and his willingness to tell his story.”Ike’s story begins as 8-yer-old along the Poland/Ukraine border. Following the Nazi conquest of Poland in 1939, any sense of normalcy became impossible. Jews were beaten and forced to work in labor camps or killed simply because they were Jews.Three of Ike’s six brothers and sisters, as well as his mother, grandmother, and other family members were killed by the Nazi SS. Ike and his brother Sam ran away from the labor camp where they had been forced to work as slave labor and hid in the woods, surviving on potatoes and sugar beets and their own skills.With the liberation of the camps by Russian troops in the waning days of World War II, Ike and his brother, two sisters and their father made their way to a displaced persons camp in Germany. There he learned a trade as an electrician and said he “learned to be human again”.Ike and his brother arrived in Pasadena in 1951 and soon got jobs and later owned a small retail business. He married Faye Chason and they have four children and six grandchildren.The now 88-year-old survivor looks back on those years and says it is important to remember:“For decades I was silent, but I and other survivors have an important story to tell so that no child will have to deal with the hatred and violence that my family experienced.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
