Phil Vickery on the Lions: Part 2

first_img Friends for life: Phil Vickery after the successful final Test against the Springboks Rugby World editor Owain Jones took a pew with England and Lions legend Phil Vickery to discuss the tour in New Zealand, the likely Test 23 to face the All Blacks for the First Test and whether they can win their first Series since 1971…How do you think the side have conducted themselves on the field? Is a strong bond forming?There was a little stir made with Maro Itoje celebrating a scrum penalty against the Blues. You have to be careful sometimes how you portray it? Do people think you’ve portrayed it as winning the game. I struggle sometimes when you see a wing running 40 into the scrum, doing high-fives and slapping backsides. It’s a part of the modern game but it would irritate me. I also struggle with players going to the referee, talking, calling for a high-tackle by throwing their arms in the air. The referee is in charge, end of. I’m 110 per cent behind making our game safer but sportsmanship needs to be kept in check. On the whole, I’m not that surprised with the results. We’re not sitting here saying the lads haven’t got a clue what to do, Gats is weeping and Rob Howley has gone for a long walk. It’s building nicely.Do you have an inkling what the Test side will be?I’m a big Johnny Sexton fan. I think he’s fantastic. I think maybe he has a better rugby brain than (Farrell) as an attacking force but if I was a front-row forward, I’d probably want Owen there with his defence and aggression. Does Farrell and Sexton work together? That’s a big call. Over a period of 12 months, I’d be thinking of a Catt and Wilkinson scenario, Farrell and George Ford but they haven’t had much time together.In midfield, I think Ben Te’o has been a real stand-out on this tour and Jonathan Davies is favourite for the shirt at No 13 and I’m a big fan of his. Stuart Hogg has been so unlucky. Anthony Watson is an outside bet at No 15, but he’ll probably stick with Leigh Halfpenny for his kicking. I see North on one flank, and maybe Watson or Liam Williams on the other.Tough choices: Do you pick Owen Farrell or Johnny Sexton, or play them together?How do you see the pack shaping up for Eden Park on June 25?Up front, the first person I think of first is Mako Vunipola. He’s just immense. His workrate – I just want to hug the bloke. If he doesn’t start and you go with Jack McGrath. If you’re losing by 10 points, with 25 to go, you bring him out to energise matters. I thought the Irish front-row would be starting the Test. Tadhg Furlong has been quite a find and Rory Best, plays with his heart on his sleeve and has captained Ireland to a win over New Zealand. He’s an immense human being. If you’re looking for an impact, you want Jamie George on the bench. In the engine room, George Kruis has to be a starter, it hurts when you think Joe Launchbury isn’t even on the tour. Alongside him, at the start, you have Alun Wyn Jones for his experience, he’s a bloody good rugby player. Maro could come off the bench and offer you that energy. I don’t see him as a six option.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREIn the backrow, Taulupe Faletau is a shoe-in. He just gets on with it quietly; he tackles, has the footwork. Peter O’Mahony has given the backrow balance and Sean O’Brien has come back with a back and I’d be tempted to start him, with Warburton coming back to fitness. It seems crazy because we have three or four of our best players on the bench. The sports analysts make the call when they change them. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the second part of his interview, England and Lions legend Phil Vickery speaks to Rugby World about big decisions Warren Gatland has to make in the next 24hrs… Leader: Peter O’Mahony may have done enough to earn a blindside spotIs this Warren Gatland’s biggest test as a coach?I’d say so. He’s surrounded by a coaching team that has been around for a long time. Steve Borthwick, Andy Farrell and Rob Howley are all very experience but Gats is his own man. He showed that with the dropping of Brian O’Driscoll. He’ll make the right decision for the Lions and as a New Zealander, no one will want to beat them more than him.Can they win the Series?Are they capable? Yes. Can they perform on the day for long enough period to win a Test Series? I’m not so sure. I believe the skillset and ability of this Lions squad is as good as the All Blacks, but can they get all those elements right on the day. They’ll have to be perfect to do it.Support for the Lions is flooding into Auckland for the First TestPhil Vickery’s squad for the First TestJack McGrath (Ireland)Rory Best (Ireland)Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)George Kruis (EnglandAlun Wyn Jones (Wales, capt)Peter O’Mahony (Ireland)Sean O’Brien (Ireland)Taulupe Faletau (Wales)Conor Murray (Ireland)Johnny Sexton (Ireland)Anthony Watson (England)Ben Te’o (England)Jonathan Davies (Wales)George North (Wales)Leigh Halfpenny (Wales)Reps: Mako Vunipola (England), Jamie George (England), Kyle Sinckler (England), Maro Itoje (England), Sam Warburton (Wales), Rhys Webb (Wales), Owen Farrell (England), Liam Williams (Wales)last_img read more

Philadelphia protest demands U.S. out of Ukraine

first_imgDemonstrators in Philadelphia on May 9 handed out hundreds of fliers  and spoke out on a sound system explaining to passersby why they should oppose any U.S. interference in Ukraine.  The 90-minute rally was co-sponsored by the International Action Center, Philly Against War and the Philadelphia branches of Socialist Action, the Answer Coalition, the Party for Socialism and Liberation and Workers World Party. The action was one of the first of a series of similar demonstrations planned from May 9 to May 26, called by the United National Anti-war Coalition to mobilize the already strong anti-war sentiment and turn it into action.

‘LGBTQ liberation and working class struggle’

first_imgMinnie Bruce PrattWe woke up on Nov. 9 to learn that the ultrabigoted, racist and woman-hating Trump was president-elect and that Mike Pence was vice president-elect. Pence is rabidly hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people and, as Indiana’s governor, led a massive attack by the state on LGBTQ lives disguised as “religious freedom.”Pence has worked nonstop against same-sex marriage and has opposed all laws to protect LGBTQ adults and children in bathrooms, workplaces and public accommodations. He is deeply anti-woman and vows to overturn the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling on the right to abortion.This was a blow, as it came after the LGBTQ movement has won so many victories over the last several years, including the Supreme Court decision in 2003 overturning sodomy laws that criminalized gay and lesbian sexuality and its 2015 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage.But those victories were won at the same time as reactionary campaigns have continued against LGBTQ lives. More than 115 anti-LGBTQ bills were introduced at state and local levels in 2015. These included bills to force lesbian, gay and transgender children into “conversion therapy” that claims it can change sexual orientation or gender identity. Scientific research has proven this cannot be done, as stated in “Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth” published by the American Psychological Association.Nationally coordinated hate legislation to criminalize transgender people for using public bathrooms spread like a gasoline fire. One such bill is North Carolina’s HB2, “Hate Bill 2,” which created a national uproar after its March 2016 passage. HB2 was pushed by groups funded by North Carolina billionaire Art Pope, friend of the reactionary Koch brothers. Pope was listed in 2013 as one of the 10 wealthiest men in the U.S. He is ideologically dedicated to “free enterprise” — meaning no regulation of capitalism and no legal limits on the owning class’s “freedom” to exploit workers. (ourfuture.org)It was no accident that the HB2 law criminalizing trans people also revoked all state laws protecting LGBTQ people, made it harder for all oppressed workers to file state discrimination claims against employers and stymied local governments from raising the minimum wage for some workers.Queer and trans people of color were the first to militantly resist HB2 with marches, sit-ins and civil disobedience. Our Durham, N.C., comrades played leading roles in organized resistance that resulted in billions of dollars of lost revenue to businesses and established a basis for interlocking unity in resistance.Fight every attack on oppressed peopleWWP North Carolina organizers said on March 28: “The ruling class does not want to see a united front against homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, ableism or any other issue plaguing the working class. They want to divide us, using lies that make us enemies of each other. But as revolutionaries, we understand that fighting for the working class means fighting back against every attack on oppressed peoples.”Bigots justified the anti-trans HB2 bill as necessary with the slur of “protecting women and children from sexual ­predators.”Those of us who know the centuries of struggle against U.S. enslavement of and racism against Black people, particularly in the South, recognize the lying, unity-shattering accusation of “rapist” and “sexual predator” aimed at oppressed people, especially Black men.We heard that calumny last year from white supremacist Dylann Storm Roof as he massacred nine African-American people, seven of them women, as they worshipped in a Charleston, S.C., church.As for the accusation of “sexual predator” thrown at LGBTQ people, I have been accused of and grievously wounded by that slur. I lost custody of my own children when I came out as a lesbian in North Carolina in 1974. I and thousands of LGBTQ people have lost our children, jobs, birth families and often lives because of the bigoted belief that LGBTQ people prey on adults and children.In those “old days,” we were illegal people. Our sexuality and our gender expression were criminal offenses. Yet human ties of love and family continue to be smashed in the U.S. through continued violence against queer people, the criminalization and deportation of migrant workers, cop killings and mass incarceration of Black people and other people of color, and the making of refugees through U.S. imperialist wars,When workers and oppressed people rise up to fight these injustices, gender-baiting is a constant tactic used to divide the struggle. In 1973 the Equal Rights Amendment for women was defeated in North Carolina primarily because of a right-wing campaign of “bathroom panic,” which claimed the ERA would force women to use dangerous “unisex toilets.”Dividing the working class by exploiting fears and biased assumptions about gender or sexuality goes beyond being only a domestic tactic of the U.S. ruling class. In 2001 the U.S. invaded Afghanistan using the false Islamophobic slogan of “oppressed women” to justify imperialist war. This was after the U.S. put the Taliban in power in 1979, overthrowing a revolutionary communist government that was making sweeping changes for Afghan women’s liberation.The U.S. ruling class spreads false information about LGBTQ lives in countries they want to destabilize, like Iran, while promising so-called “Western freedoms” to LGBTQ people in exchange. Meanwhile, U.S. groups like the so-called Alliance Defending Freedom, funded by Art Pope, sow hatred and division about sexuality and gender in African countries, like Uganda, and promote laws that persecute and imprison LGBTQ people. (mediamatters.org)The double-face of sex and gender manipulation is shown in a U.S. neoliberal like Hillary Clinton. She boasts of being for all women, yet also boasts of destabilizing the democratically elected government of Honduras, which resulted in the assassination of Berta Cáceres Flores, an environmental activist, Indigenous leader of the Lenca people and linchpin opponent of U.S. economic exploitation of her country.Our comrade, Leslie Feinberg — who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist — wrote the first Marxist analysis of transgender oppression. In “Transgender Warriors: Making History” published in 1995, Leslie showed how oppression against women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender nonconforming people was linked — and arose from what Frederick Engels called the “world historic defeat of women” with the division of humanity into classes.The only way the capitalist class can stay in power is to keep workers and oppressed peoples from uniting. Our struggle for consciousness about how to unite is the most profound struggle of all. Onward to socialist revolution! Onward together in the struggle! Onward together!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reproductive & gender justice now!

first_imgA new, vicious right-wing attack has been launched on access to abortion in the U.S.The Alabama State Legislature passed the most punitive and restrictive law in the United States on May 14, placing a total ban on abortions in the state, even in cases of rape or incest. The only possible exemption, very difficult to obtain, is if a pregnancy endangers the physical or mental health of a woman. The bill makes performing or attempting to perform an abortion a felony.Alabama joins seven other states — so far — in passing laws that defiantly flout the Constitutional protection to abortion guaranteed in the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. Roe limits abortion only after a fetus is “viable” — at about 20 weeks into pregnancy.Some of the new laws actually outlaw abortion at four weeks — earlier than most people could even suspect they were pregnant.There has been an outpouring of outrage, protest and analysis about these violent legislative attacks. Some mainstream pundits see the campaign as a Republican ramp-up to the coming 2020 national elections.But the reasons go far deeper — centuries deep into the foundation of power and exploitation in the U.S.The laws are being passed to strengthen misogyny, white supremacy and hatred of LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.Most of all, the laws are being passed as a brutal weapon in the ongoing and renewed attack on U.S. workers and on the growing solidarity rising in the multinational, multigender and multigenerational working class.It is no accident that the attack on abortion access is happening as women and gender nonconforming people are leading mass, militant, rank-and-file worker actions. Over the past couple of years, millions of U.S. teachers, nurses, tech workers and fast food workers, often headed by women of color, walked out in strike actions from schools, hospitals, Google offices and McDonald’s restaurants.These workers took gender and reproductive justice issues to the picket line as work issues — from sexual harassment to access to contraceptives in health coverage, to family leave, to equal pay. And they tied these issues to the need for ending oppression based on race and national origin.Dejuana Thompson, founder of Woke Vote Birmingham, exposed the deep racism in the recent laws, saying to the Birmingham News May 19: “The [Birmingham Southern] College Republicans released a statement equating the [1963] bombing of the four little [Black] girls at historic 16th Street Baptist Church with the sentencing of medical professionals who would perform abortions. … We, as organizers, will not be silent about this kind of revisionist history and the attempted erasure of the Black woman’s experience in this country. … [the fact that] Black women’s bodies were used as breeders and then discarded as tools.”Since Congress ended the use of federal money for abortions in the 1976 Hyde Amendment, ongoing limits placed on abortion access have hit poor people of color, and Black, Brown and Indigenous women, extra hard. The struggle to survive financially as family has intensified, while the new anti-abortion laws actually threaten criminal penalties for efforts to obtain relief.Though abortion access is often phrased as an issue of women’s rights, the attack affects any person with a uterus. Devin Cole of Social Trans Initiative, on their way to a May 19 protest in Mobile, Ala., clarified this on Facebook: “Not everyone who gets pregnant is a woman, not everyone with a uterus is a woman and not every woman has a uterus. [We must] call for reproductive justice for all — women, trans men, non-binary people with a uterus and intersex people.”Fighting for abortion access is one part of the struggle for reproductive and gender justice, for the right of people to choose when, where or whether to bear children — and also for the right to have the resources to shelter, feed, clothe, educate and nurture their children.The fight for abortion access is also another link in the ongoing struggle against capitalism’s treatment of people as property. As Jenny Arras said to the Birmingham News: “This law is dangerous. … It says: ‘We will make your bodies and what they carry inside — our property.’”As communists, we struggle always against the deadly claws of capitalism that reach into our lives. We fight for the right of workers and oppressed people to dignity, joy and self-determination, especially for people of color.To counter the hate-filled campaign on access to abortion, we fiercely struggle for reproductive and gender justice.Now is the chance to be part of working-class actions by organizing International Workers’ Solidarity Days (workersolidarity.net) to fight back with protests, rallies and calls for “Reproductive and gender justice now!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Syracuse, N.Y. says: ‘Close the Camps’ with people’s power

first_img“Up, up with liberation! Down, down with deportation!” rang out Oct. 11 as more than 75 people marched through the streets of downtown Syracuse, N.Y. They were responding to a national call for Close the Camps actions that day to “Stop the war on immigrants, Indigenous peoples and refugees!”At a rally before the march, longtime local activist Ursula Rozum pointed out connections between white supremacy, crimes of colonization against Indigenous peoples, the enslavement of African peoples and criminalization of immigrants and refugees. She emphasized these crimes were “bipartisan” — neither Democratic nor Republican parties really intended to stop these long-standing injustices. “People’s power is the only answer!” she asserted.The depth of Syracuse community determination to close the foul concentration camps showed in the list of rally endorsers, including the initiator Syracuse Immigrant and Refugee Defense Network, Black Lives Matter-Syracuse, CNY Solidarity Coalition, Indivisible NY24, New York Immigration Coalition, Syracuse Childcare Collective, Syracuse Graduate Employees United, Syracuse Peace Council, Syracuse Tenants United, and the Workers Center of Central New York.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The new team consists of President Kenzie Kretzmeier, Benton Central; Secretary Annalee Witte, Eastern Hancock; NR VP Brett Roberts, Columbia City; SR VP Mason Gordon, Rushville; Treasurer Sean Harrington, Tri-County; Reporter Courtney Adams, Sheridan and Sentinel Joshua Calhoun, Hope.HAT joined the new president on stage as friends and family moved in to congratulate all the new officers. Kretzmeier said this is “absolutely” a dream come true.“I imagined myself on the team but then once I got closer to the process I realized, wow, there are a lot of competitive people here to run for the state officer team. What an honor it is to be on the team and to be the president. I just can’t wait to lead this team and see what we have in store for this next year.”She said she does feel the weight of responsibility that goes with the new position, but “We are a team of seven and we all work together. We are all equal and will all collaborate and get the job done.”Kretzmeier has served as secretary, vice president and president of her FFA chapter in Benton County and served two years on the district officer team as secretary and then president.“Along with FFA I am also a 10 year 4-H member and highly involved in community service activities through our church and our school, and I’m involved in a lot of academic groups such as National Honor Society, Council of Academic Excellence, and Spanish National Honor Society.”Adams told HAT that being on the team doesn’t even feel real yet and Gordon added it’s hard to believe they’ll be the popular ones on the block now.
