Gareth Thomas late hit on Berrick Barnes

first_imgMonday Sep 17, 2007 Gareth Thomas late hit on Berrick Barnes Young Berrick Barnes made only his second appearance for the Wallabies against Wales on the weekend. In a game that the Aussies won comfortably in the end, Barnes played well, with some decisive breaks and good distribution.After one of this excellent breaks and a great dummy, he offloaded to Matt Giteau and received a welcome to test rugby from Welsh captain Gareth Thomas. Late and hard, this hit should have resulted in a yellow card.Totally uncalled for and I think the fact that Thomas got away with it has something to do with him being captain. For some reason the refs always take this into account when making decisions.Horrible hit for the youngster Barnes after such a good break, but luckily for him and the Aussies he got up and carried on playing showing no ill effects.Not great by Thomas though, and as you’ll see, Australia got revenge.

The ‘union’ that ain’t

first_imgThe history of unions goes back to the 18th century and the Industrial Revolution. Until there were unions, laborers seemed to exist at the mercy of the bosses, who worked them to death and starved them and their families at the same time. But as the number of wage workers in those hellish factories and mills began to rise in numbers and concentration, they were imbued with a sense of their own strength.They figured out how to organize and get together to demand higher wages, shorter hours and better conditions. They showed the bosses that unless they won improvements, they’d walk off the job en masse and close down the profit mills. Unions were born.Unions and bosses were like water and fire — they didn’t mix.Now comes Donald Trump, the epitome of the super-rich oppressor of workers, with a bank account bigger than a mountain of gold. And he is claiming he has union support.What union could that be?“Trump endorsed by police union,” read a U.S. News & World Report headline. Ah, it’s the New England Police Benevolent Association. Well, that’s two lies. It’s not  a “union” and it’s not “benevolent.”It seems these cops really like what Trump said about barring Muslims from the U.S. They also like his plan to extend the death penalty — as though it weren’t already one of the harshest in the world — to anyone who kills a cop, for any reason. What if it’s a cop raping a woman or shaking down a small store owner with a gun to his/her head? Doesn’t matter.It’s twisting the truth for anyone to call these “police benevolent associations” unions. The bosses call in the cops to break picket lines, not enforce workers’ rights. Even though more people of color have been inducted into the force, the police “unions” have been bastions of racism and white supremacy, and the function of the police has continued to be one of violently repressing the poorest sections of the working class — never the white-collar criminals who steal millions. In the United States, because of the legacy of centuries of racism, this means cops are a violent occupying force in communities of color.So what should workers do about this? Especially, how can those white workers in the labor movement strengthen their solidarity with workers of color and immigrants, like the Muslims Trump wants to bar from this country?A good way to start would be to kick this “union” out of the labor movement. It doesn’t belong there. It’s like having a rattlesnake in your bedroll.It’s not a Republicans-versus-Democrats issue. It’s collusion between a bunch of racist, anti-immigrant killers with guns and a super-rich bigot who hates all real unions. Together, they’re trying to carry out a maneuver that could cast disgrace on the whole labor movement. Say no to Trump!

TV reporter gunned down in broad daylight in Khairpur

first_img Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News February 23, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TV reporter gunned down in broad daylight in Khairpur RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn of TV reporter Ashiq Ali Mangi’s murder in the southeastern district of Khairpur in yet another sign of the growing dangers for journalists in Pakistan. Employed by the privately-owned television station Mehran, Mangi was gunned down as he rode to the local press club in Gambat on a motorcycle on 17 February.The press freedom organisation also joins the Khyber Union of Journalists and the Tribal Union of Journalists in calling for the immediate release of freelance journalist Muhammad Rasheed, who has been held incommunicado by the military since early January.“Violence against journalists is disturbing, especially when members of the security forces are implicated,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We offer our condolences to Mangi’s family and colleagues and we call for a proper investigation into his murder. A responsible government cannot accept its failure to protect journalists. It must work to end the impunity for crimes against the media. It would be intolerable if the local and national authorities allowed this killing to go unpunished.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The government must also explain Rasheed’s arbitrary detention and heed the call by several Pakistani organisations for his immediate release. As they have pointed out, no law allows the authorities to hold someone for such a long time without bringing charges. Even if government security agencies believe this journalist has done something wrong, they must proceed in a legal manner.”Sources told Reporters Without Borders that Mangi’s murder could have been ordered by a former police officer whose alleged links with criminal groups had been exposed by the journalist. He was shot a day before the authorities prevented journalists in the district of Swat from marking the first anniversary of journalist Musa Khankhel’s murder. The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) said the Swat authorities imposed an immediate curfew to prevent any commemoration of Khel’s death.Kidnapped by the Taliban on 29 December and released six days later, Rasheed is believed to have been arrested shortly thereafter by the military at a checkpoint at Mirzael and then taken to Peshawar. The military refuse to confirm or deny that they are holding him.Journalists have meanwhile staged several protests in the past few days. Journalists who cover parliamentary sessions in Islamabad stage staged a walkout on 18 February in a show of dissatisfaction with the national and local authorities. And many journalists and press clubs issued a joint statement yesterday condemning a physical attack on Muhammad Husain Khan, a reporter for the newspaper Dawn, in Hyderabad.
