Try scoring Will Genia led the Reds to their maiden Super Rugby titleUnder the expectant lights of Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, Queensland Reds last night claimed their maiden Super 15 title in the most impressive of ways.Facing a Crusaders team vying for their eighth championship victory, the home side produced a resilient yet inspired display to become the first Australian’s to lift the title since 2004.In a match that twisted and turned in typical thriller fashion, the Reds ran out eventual 18-13 winners thanks to some sterling defence and a smattering of individual genius.With line-ups featuring some of the brightest and best names in the competition, elevated expectations of a classic encounter could certainly have been forgiven. Yet pleasingly, these expectations proved to be well placed, if not a little pessimistic.The mercurial Dan Carter was of course one of the main protagonists, notching all 13 points for the visitors including an exquisite individual try to match his composed kicking. His counterpart Quade Cooper produced a mature yet typically stylish performance, whilst teammate Digby Ioane got on the scoreboard after a well-executed move.Yet the moment of the match fell to the Red’s Will Genia. Pinned back in their own twenty two with ten minutes remaining, the scrum half collected the ball and appeared to be drifting across field before a lightening change of pace saw him surge through the Crusaders defence and pick an intelligent line to outpace his chasers and score one of the tries of the season. Indeed on current form it seems difficult to look past either nation for a winner of the Web Ellis trophy. With so many strong teams in the Super 15 such an entertaining final is a mere snippet of what will be on offer come September and, as exciting as it is for the neutral, it should serve as warning as much as a testament. With so much talent on show it was befitting that a moment of genius should decide the encounter, and the Australian Player of the Year certainly ensured the match lived up to it’s billing.And with just under two months until the World Cup begins, such a strong domestic final will have certainly have given other nations a lot to think about.The Australians first Super 15 win in seven years will give confidence to their young and supremely talented Wallabies squad. The likes of Genia and Cooper are now central figures to a team with only six members holding more than 50 caps, each crafting their game around their natural talent to become real and definite threats. James O’ Connor is another Red developing on early promise, whilst “elder statesmen” Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley-Cooper and Drew Mitchell will provide experienced heads amongst the youth.Defeat for the Crusaders will not damage New Zealand’s morale too much, and with an equally strong squad it is hard not to see them challenging come the Autumn. Carter is a given threat, whilst the emergence and evolution of Sonny Bill Williams has been fast and impressive. Richie McCaw will lead a typically strong pack, whilst the likes of Israel Dagg prove they have talented youth to turn to as well.

Demonstration to free Ahmad Sa’adat in Istanbul.Events held across the world on Jan.12-14 demanded freedom for Ahmad Sa’adat, the general secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and for all Palestinian prisoners. Sa’adat has been imprisoned by Israel since 2006.“Sa’adat is not only a leader of the Palestinian left but a respected leader of the entire Palestinian national movement,” Khaled Barakat, international coordinator of the Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa’adat, told Workers World about the days of action. “In fact, he became a leader in prison over his many arrests through the years.”Prior to his seizure in 2006 by Israeli forces during a raid on the Palestinian Authority’s Jericho prison, Sa’adat had been imprisoned by the PA since 2002 over the assassination of the Israeli tourism minister, Rehavam Ze’evi.The many parties to Sa’adat’s capture “demonstrate the array of forces acting against the Palestinian people: the Zionist state, the U.S., U.K., and other imperial and colonial powers … were involved in his arrest and abduction from Jericho, and the PA’s policy of ‘security coordination’ at the behest of Israel,” Barakat said.New YorkMembers of the PFLP’s armed Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades shot Ze’evi, who advocated the complete ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip, in 2001. The action was in retaliation for Israel’s assassination of Abu Ali Mustafa, Sa’adat’s predecessor as general secretary, in an airstrike on his Ramallah office weeks earlier.Ze’evi’s shooting inside the Hyatt Regency in East Jerusalem made him the highest ranking Israeli official ever killed by the Palestinian resistance.The AAMB said at the time: “The response decided upon was difficult and full of danger, but the fighters had a strong will in their hearts and a dedication and willingness to sacrifice for Abu Ali Mustafa and the Palestinian revolution.” (pflp.ps)In 2008, an Israeli military court sentenced Sa’adat to 30 years in prison for leading an “illegal terrorist organization,” the PFLP.Like every other Palestinian political faction, from Fatah to Hamas, the PFLP is banned under Israeli military regulations.Events for Sa’adat began in New York City on Jan. 12 with simultaneous meetings by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine and Workers World Party’s center.At the center, John Fletcher, organizer for Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, called Sa’adat “a veteran of the resistance movement who comes from one of the most important generations of Palestinian resistance.” (youtube.com)Weekend actions continued with a protest by Samidoun outside the Best Buy store in Manhattan’s Union Square, opposing Hewlett Packard’s services to the Israeli prison system. Other events took place in Albuquerque, N.M.; Hilton Head, S.C.; and across at least eight European countries.Palestinians ended the mobilization in Gaza on Dec. 16 with a mass demonstration by PFLP members and other supporters.“The imprisonment of Palestinians works hand in hand with racist targeting in the United States, not only of Palestinian, Arab and Muslim communities, but also of the Black liberation movement and other liberation struggles within the U.S.,” coordinator Barakat said of the events’ significance on the eve of the Trump administration. “Every struggle within the U.S. to fight racism, oppression and imperialism benefits the Palestinian people’s liberation struggle.”For more information on Sa’adat and Palestinian prisoners, visit the websites of the Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa’adat and Samidoun: freeahmadsaadat.org, samidoun.net.Catron is a member of Al-Awda New York: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition and an organizer with Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison ChinaAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on China RSF_en As the Occupy Central movement continues its pro-democracy demonstrations, local and foreign media whose coverage angers the government are suffering consequences. Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes China’s Cyber Censorship Figures October 16, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RWB condemns new cases of censorship and self-censorship News Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily is paying a high price for supporting Occupy Central. Members of a counter-movement have been surrounding the headquarters of the newspaper, which announced its pro-Occupy Central position on 11 October. For three days, the paper’s activities have been disrupted, with delivery trucks prevented from entering. As a result, distributors have not been fully supplied. Delivery of the International New York Times, carried by the same trucks, was also affected. During the third day of the anti-newspaper action, the demonstrators – most of them women wearing face masks – defied a High Court order of 14 October that they lift the siege. But police did not proceed to arrest them, effectively allowing the delivery truck blockade to continue. On 15 October, the BBC website suffered blocking as well. It was taken down for several hours after it ran a video showing Hong Kong police beating pro-democracy protester Ken Tsang Kin-Chiu. March 12, 2021 Find out more to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more On Hong Kong television station TVB, management partially censored the same video by cutting narration explaining that police were assaulting the demonstrator. Twenty-seven TVB journalists signed an open letter condemning the self-censorship. Reporters Without Borders supports this initiative. The organization expresses its outrage at repeated blocking of news on critically important events occurring in Hong Kong. “It is unacceptable that the court decision was not followed by action on the part of police on the scene,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, head of the organization’s Asia-Pacific desk. “This infringement of press freedom is all the more serious because the online site was rendered inaccessible on Tuesday afternoon. Censorship and pressure orchestrated by the Beijing government must also stop. We call on media not to give in to the pressure to self-censor. Those that yield to the pressure damage their own credibility and call into question their reason for existence.” On 10 October, RWB condemned the Beijing government’s expanding control of the Special Administrative Region that includes Hong Kong. The organization called on the Hong Kong government’s chief executive to guarantee freedom of the press and freedom of expression. The previous week, RWB expressed concern at the Beijing government’s power to alter news coverage, including by the foreign press.Hong Kong ranks 61st of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Although the outdoor event kicked off with a morning rain shower, the activities went on as planned.As a school fundraiser, several areas of the event broke records in spite of the inclement weather and lower attendance. The Holiday Boutique Silent Auction was a resounding success, bringing in its largest contribution to date. The schoolâ€™s gift shop, the Wishing Well, also achieved its highest sales figures with many families enjoying the opportunity for holiday shopping.Funds generated by the Elvesâ€™ Faire activities are used for campus improvements, upgrades to the historic Scripps Hall and to maintain the natural outdoor learning environment of the lower-school campus. The Faire also is an opportunity to give back to the community. In addition to providing a safe, fun and unique holiday entertainment experience, a few lucky winners walked home with wonderful prizes from the school. The prizes included a seven-night stay in Cancun with airfare for two, two nights in Villa Ojai, dinner at the Water Grill and a night at the Millennium Biltmore.The Elvesâ€™ Faire strives to maintain Pasadena Waldorfâ€™s eco-friendly mission and was very successful this year in diverting 89.3% of all waste away from landfills. This was due to the efforts of many parent volunteers assisting with the sorting of compostable and recyclable materials. The vast majority of consumables at the Faire (including paper cups and lids) are made from compostable materials, accounting for almost 87% of the overall waste. Overall, the school recovered 1,551.2 pounds for composting out of a total 1,783.2 pounds of waste.Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, is one of over 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide with over 90 years of experience offering inspired education. Pasadena Waldorf High School, which opened this year, joins 40 other Waldorf high schools now operating in North America. Waldorf education is the fastest growing independent school movement in the world.
