Dixon try proves crucial as Highlanders beat Hurricanes to Super Rugby title

first_imgSaturday Jul 4, 2015 Dixon try proves crucial as Highlanders beat Hurricanes to Super Rugby title The Highlanders earlier beat the Hurricanes 21-14 in a sensational Super Rugby Final that featured brilliant offloads and an incredibly high tempo of play throughout. One of the tries of the match was scored by flanker Elliot Dixon, or was it?The first half was played at a thousand miles an hour, with both sides showing that despite it being a final, if the mindset is right, players can attack from anywhere on the park, retain possession and produce some thrilling rugby.Both sides threw the ball about, with very little kicking for territory, and very few scrums. Referee Jaco Peyper let the game flow, and fans were treated to a spectacle that will not only go down as one of the best finals of all time, but easily one of the more memorable Super Rugby games to have been played.Following a well taken Ma’a Nonu try, the Highlanders hit back when Elliot Dixon surged over the line, showing incredible pace and power before grounding the ball. He didn’t look too convinced himself – probably not helping his cause – but TMO Ben Skeen decided that after many looks at it, the try was indeed scored.Dixon said post match that he’s had a few close calls this season, so expected this one to go against him too. Luck was on his side though as the try was awarded and the Highlanders stayed ahead, as they were all game.“I actually thought he’d lost the ball but we tend to look at these things out of our own eyes,” said Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd. “At the end of the day, it was pretty critical.”They went on to win their first ever Super Rugby title, a phenomenal effort away from home to what has been the best team in the competition.

Youth have ‘no future in this system’

first_imgTachae DavisWW photo: Brenda RyanTalk given at WWP conference by Tachae Davis.Youth today are suffering at the hands of imperialism. As a youth of color struggling to survive in Detroit, I am furious at the conditions in which people are forced to live.Detroit has always been under constant scrutiny by the media, who will have you believe Detroit just went bankrupt overnight. Detroit’s debt was intentionally created to justify its systematic destruction. Big banks trapped Detroit in toxic swap deals that they knew Detroit could not afford, right before the economic collapse in which banks were given low-interest-rate loans by the Fed to bail themselves out. As a result, austerity measures have been introduced repeatedly to cut funds to health, education and other social programs in a predominantly African-American city.These cuts spell disaster for workers and oppressed people, especially the youth of the city, who are struggling to find work in a state with a reported 18.8 percent unemployment rate, as of July. Recently, the Detroit Free Press reported a fall in the unemployment rate, now at 7.2 percent, but this does not spell recovery, and in fact does not reflect those who have stopped looking for work or who are underemployed.It is not uncommon to hear of youth, students and nonstudents alike who work two or three jobs just to make ends meet. Often, these jobs are part-time and un-unionized, forcing youth to work overtime to sustain themselves and pay bills, the most expensive being tuition, which has steadily risen. Student debt has ballooned to $1 trillion in total, as austerity measures also mean more scholarship programs and initiatives have lost funding, which dissuades college and high school students from pursuing a degree.Even with a degree, many students are still stuck in low-wage jobs that seek to exploit their labor as these corporations expand globally and maximize their profits in record numbers. Many youth are forced to stay with their parents, or move back in, as they can no longer afford a dorm or apartment due to rent increases.As a student and part-time worker, I struggle to make the commute every day by use of public transit, which has also seen dramatic cuts of routes and workers, including drivers and maintenance workers. These issues recently reached a fever pitch on Oct. 22 when the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 26, rallied in front of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, where they stated multiple grievances, including erratic scheduling, poor bus maintenance and violence.Both bus drivers and commuters agree that overcrowding and late arrival times have created a hostile relationship that makes conditions dangerous for all. In a city that is already heavily policed by state troops, the answer has been to install surveillance cameras on buses. This is but one of a series of reactionary measures the state has enacted to supposedly create order, while they divert people’s attention away from the underlying fiscal reasons for the crumbling infrastructure and economy. From foreclosures, to a lackluster bus system and school closings, the message is clear: those who are most vulnerable in a capitalist system are valued the least!There is a solution, one in which the workers are unionized, and are entitled to safe working conditions and fair wages. Education will be a right, which will not chain youth to insurmountable debt that leaves them overstressed and overworked, without the means to access proper health care or even afford basic necessities such as food.No longer should individuals and families be forced to choose between feeding themselves, paying bills or putting gas in the car. Government entities that only seek to perpetuate war, exploit other countries and their resources must be dismantled!What is needed now more than ever is a system that truly guarantees the right to life by ensuring people the very basic things that are needed to build and nourish life.Youth today have no future in this system, and must unite with other young workers and oppressed youth to fight against imperialism and build socialism! nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ukraine communists ‘face to face with 21st century fascism’

first_imgBorotba leader Victor ShapinovWW photo: Greg ButterfieldInterview with Borotba leader Victor Shapinov, Part 1Simferopol, Crimea — On Sept. 22, Workers World conducted an extensive interview with Victor Shapinov, a coordinator and leading theoretician of the Marxist organization Union Borotba (Struggle) of Ukraine. Shapinov currently lives in exile with other Borotba activists in Crimea, under threat of arrest from the U.S.-backed coup regime in Kiev. Additional installments of the interview will appear in coming weeks.Workers World: What is the role of U.S. imperialism in Ukraine today?Victor Shapinov: It is very significant now, and Maidan showed that. [Maidan is the pro-imperialist movement which took its name from the central square of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, where it held protests in late 2013 and early 2014. The backbone of this movement, which received extensive funding and political support from the U.S. government, were neo-Nazi gangs and political parties. — WW][Maidan culminated in the overthrow of the elected government of President Victor Yanukovich in February. It brought to power an alliance of wealthy oligarchs, neoliberal politicians and fascists that have carried out a brutal war against the working class, primarily Russian-speaking population of the Donbass region and anti-fascists throughout Ukraine.]Before Maidan, we didn’t believe that the U.S. role was so important in countries like Ukraine. We sometimes laughed at conspiracy theorists who said that everything was produced by the U.S. State Department, the CIA and so on.Of course that’s not true, because its real basis is the capitalist crisis. Ukraine was just the weakest link in the chain of post-Soviet countries. There are many contradictions. Different imperialist forces and even nonimperialist forces, try to take advantage of this situation to achieve their goals. However, U.S. imperialism has the best instruments in this field.For instance, in Ukrainian politics, U.S. imperialism is not limited to direct agents who are active in politics and who hold pro-Western positions. Around the edges, they have a field of friendship and alliances with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and human rights organizations. They do not always directly support U.S. imperialism. But in critical moments — for example, when Maidan started — in that situation, they had a command to go there and so they went.We went to investigate Maidan at the beginning [in November 2013]. We saw only about 1,000 people, and many were from NGOs, human rights organizations and so on. We recognized many of them and some we knew personally, because when you are active in politics you get to know them.From the point of view of political and financial mechanics, Ukraine is totally integrated into the system led by the United States. Ukrainian oligarchs all have their money, their bank accounts, in Europe and the U.S. They are closely linked with imperialist capital.We also had political consultants such as Paul Manafort [U.S. lobbyist and campaign advisor to several Republican presidents]. He was a confidant of former President Yanukovich. But all Ukrainian politicians sought his advice. It was very good practice for them to go and ask him how to do everything. It was one of the ways for Washington to influence events. It was not overt; it was communication from Ukrainian politicians to some forces in the U.S. about how to do things in Ukrainian politics.Another of these mechanisms is credit from the International Monetary Fund. All previous Ukrainian governments [since the breakup of the USSR in 1991] were dependent on IMF credits. The amount owed is always increasing, allowing the West to set conditions; for example, to destroy the social-care system or to raise prices of gas for the population.WW: What is your view of the current ceasefire agreement negotiated in Minsk? [The Minsk accords were negotiated at the initiative of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (representing the European Union) and the Russian Federation. The agreement, signed on Sept. 5, was supposed to end the civil war between Ukraine and the newly independent Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics in the southeast Donbass mining region. On September 16, the Ukrainian parliament passed a law granting “certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk” special status for three years.]VS: There is no real ceasefire. Ukrainian military attacks have not stopped for even one day.After the treaty in Minsk, we saw the most cruel artillery attack ever on the city of Donetsk, even more than in the heaviest days of the war. We believe there is some under-the-table negotiation between U.S. imperialism, the European Union and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin over how to slow the situation to something acceptable for everybody.The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics are just pawns in this big game. It’s a pity but it’s true. The People’s Republics have to sign these treaties because now they cannot survive without humanitarian aid from Russia.We think that’s the reason [former Donetsk Defense Minister and militia leader Igor] Strelkov was removed was because he was hardline in this conflict. Now we see that most military commanders don’t support the agreement. Before Minsk, the people’s militia was advancing, the Ukrainian army was depressed and close to defeat at some points.One reason the militias don’t support this peace treaty is that there is only a small piece of land in this configuration. In this way the People’s Republics, or Novorossia, will not survive or will be completely dependent on Russia. They want to make a real state that can be independent. Of course, they want friendly relations with Russia, but it would not be a puppet.Also — and we are exercising what influence we have on this point — it is not only about the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. It’s a question for at least a fifth of Ukraine, or maybe for all of it.We don’t think Ukraine, even the northwest parts, should have to be under the power of the oligarchs, nationalists and fascists. People should not have to live under this regime, even if it has some mass support right now. We think it is very bad for all Ukraine. It destroys the economic well-being of the people in the West and in Kiev also.WW: How is Borotba raising the question of autonomy and self-determination for other regions of Ukraine, such as Odessa, where neo-Nazis massacred 48 activists on May 2?VS: After the Maidan coup, Borotba was very active in building the resistance movement in southeastern cities such as Kharkov and Odessa.Now, from exile in Crimea, we have helped to establish a Committee for the Liberation of Odessa, which consists of some members of the Odessa regional parliament, city council members, and civil and political activists. We’ve made a demand for the Ukraine government to expand the treaty with Lugansk and Donetsk, to grant self-government and other things like their own municipal militias so the people’s militia can transform into it and have some legal rights to retain their arms, for example. Also the right of residents to education in their native languages.We think this can be a first step to stop the civil war, which continues not only in Donbass, but in Odessa and Kharkov, not as an armed struggle, but as partisan actions and civil protests which are repressed. But still, people are going out and making demands. There is always far-right terror against activists. Many are political prisoners, some of them were beaten or killed by neo-Nazis, and others had to leave like our members, who left Ukraine and now live in Crimea.One of the first steps toward stopping the civil war can be extending the special status for Donetsk and Lugansk to all the territories of the southeast. We will try to hold a demonstration in Odessa soon to support this demand. The ultranationalist forces are already very angry about this demand because, from our side, it is a constructive step. They can’t just say, “They are terrorists. They are separatists.”We say, “Okay, you have passed this law on special status, so we want to use it for our regions too.” Because now these regions are directly ruled by people who were appointed from Kiev and have no roots in these regions. They utilize nationalist paramilitary gangs, who in critical situations, can defend them. So it is an occupation regime. This special status would be a first step toward some form of self-government.But it’s only a tactical thing because as we said from the first day of this civil war, the only way to make peace is to defeat the Kiev junta. The class and social nature of the junta is to wage war against all people and groups. It is the only way for them to hold their power. That’s why we don’t believe these tactical measures, like a ceasefire or even the spreading of the special status regime to the southeast, will be a solution for Ukraine.The forces awakened by Maidan are very destructive and dangerous for all society. We are face to face with the fascism of the 21st century. It is not because they have portraits of [Ukrainian Nazi collaborator] Stepan Bandera or because they say “Ukraine über alles” like clones of Nazi Germany. The nature of fascism is that this is direct state power of big capital that uses some mass support from the middle class and other groups to destroy any political opposition with violence. This is the essence of fascism.They say “We are democrats, we are liberals.” But they built this political structure. Now, if you conduct opposition politics in Ukraine, they will use violence against you. It can be police violence to accuse you as a separatist or terrorist; or if they cannot use police or the Security Service of Ukraine, they use the neo-Nazi gangs that can just kill you or beat you or terrorize your family and force you to leave the city.Part 2: The left in Ukraine and the origins of BorotbaFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bank pipeline to DAPL blocked

first_imgOver 200 people joined a rally and march in Philadelphia on Dec. 1 in solidarity with water protectors and Indigenous warriors at Standing Rock, N.D. The event took place 10 days after police and National Guard violently attacked a peaceful gathering at Standing Rock with tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray, concussion grenades and water cannons in subfreezing conditions, injuring hundreds of people. Supporters also came out to oppose the eviction notice from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, effective Dec. 5, threatening to “close” all lands north of the Cannonball River, where Oceti Sakowin ancestral and treaty land and the encampments are located.Demonstrators marched with signs, chants and banners from the hated Rizzo statue in Thomas Paine Plaza to the TD Bank at Broad and Sansom where a group of supporters was blocking the entrance to the bank. They then proceeded past the offices of the Army Corps of Engineers, heavily protected by a line of cops, to a “die-in” at the busy intersection of Market and Juniper next to City Hall. The marchers ended the protest at Thomas Paine Plaza.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
