RBS 6 Nations: Omitting O’Gara from the discussion

first_imgDUBLIN, IRELAND – FEBRUARY 10: Ireland player Ronan O’ Gara looks on dejectedly during the RBS Six Nations match between Ireland and England at Aviva Stadium on February 10, 2013 in Dublin, Ireland. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) Man in the moment: Ronan O’Gara in 2009, celebrating the drop goal that won the Triple Crown against WalesBy Alan DymockTHE FIRST, fast, now ethos of modern media means that you are furnished with soundbites and breaking news at breakneck speed. However, aside from endless repetition and retweets, we are all at risk of forgetting anything more than a month back because we are always straining our eyes to look ahead.Kicking on: Lansdowne Road in 2000So when Ronan O’Gara was left out of this weeks Ireland RBS 6 Nations squad everyone lurched forward, rather than looking back or stopping to let him have his say, or even considering that he could play for Ireland in the coming weeks due to injuries. With Jonathan Sexton injured and Paddy Jackson struggling, O’Gara could still be an Irish AN O’Ther.When he was first dropped, though, everyone immediately assumed that he would retire. Not that he could still feasibly wear green again. The jig would be up. So long, and thanks for all the kicks. Quick. Who’s next?Deference will undoubtedly be paid when everything settles down, but up to this point it has been speculation founded on international careers gone by. Players play; get dropped; bow out. That’s the perceived natural order of things, or so we’re told, and it would be awfully convenient for everyone if it would remain thus for the foreseeable future, thanks very much.Yet Ronan O’Gara, despite appearing for most of his career to have a default setting whereby he could line up a touch finder or slide-rule a penalty kick with no fuss at all, has rarely had a predictable life in rugby.His is a career in which the fat lady has not yet sung, despite the chatter. He is still revered in Munster, having famously booted them beyond Biarritz in the 2006 Heineken Cup final, and he did so again in 2008, this time against Toulouse. If he never pulls on a green jersey again, he can still prowl around Thomond Park for the good of his province. The risk at times like this is to assume he will limp off the scene, so everyone must eulogise, you know, ‘balance be damned, we’re toasting a great’. However, it is fairer, and indeed more respectful, to look at the blemishes as well as the achievements.For Ireland, O’Gara has been as near to constant as a professional in a contact sport can get. He is 36 this week, but has amassed a whopping 128 caps. In the Six Nations he has appeared more than anyone else, 61 times, and has scored more points than anyone else, chalking up 551 points. He has been on tour with the Lions to Australia in 2001, New Zealand in 2005 and South Africa in 2009.Disappointing cameo: Loss to England, Aviva Stadium, 2013There have been lows, of course. Despite the Grand Slam winning kicks of 2009 or the record breaking appearances in World Cups, there have always been questions about O’Gara’s temperament or his dedication to the tackle. He was charged down by prop Gethin Jenkins during the 2005 decider with Wales and he was unceremoniously sat down by Rodrigo Roncero in 2008, something that has happened intermittently throughout his time on the turf. His rush of blood, kick and mid-air hit against the Springboks in ’09 was another lowlight. There have been criticisms that he sat too deep, threw too many risky passes, never made breaks.For all of this, though there are highlights. His try against France in the Croke corner in 2007. His performances in wins against Australia, 2002, South Africa and Argentina, 2004, and the 2009 Triple Crown. It is also pertinent to forget the stories about him being too keen on a punt and the hideous assault from Duncan McRae in 2001. O’Gara is an interesting and complex guy, but this is a rugby issue and everything must be looked at with that overused word, balance.Allow him the chance to talk about his career when he’s ready, without foisting retirement on him. He could be recalled, he could be cast out, he could quit. Let’s pass around the soundbites when we know. After that we can try to figure out why he intrigued and divided us so much.

Gov. Chris Christie’s ‘Bridgegate’ — Follow the money

first_imgGeorge Washington BridgeThe sordid workings of bourgeois politics have been in the spotlight in the New York-New Jersey area for several months.In early January, the story came out that Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey had made a whole lot of commuters furious because his deputy chief of staff, working in cahoots with two Christie appointees at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, had arranged last September for the closing of two of the three entry lanes onto the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J. The bridge is the main artery connecting New Jersey to New York.For four days there was one hell of a traffic jam. Tens of thousands of workers couldn’t get to their jobs. Ambulances and other emergency vehicles got stuck and couldn’t respond to calls. Traffic backed up so far into Fort Lee that some kids couldn’t even get to school.Why would Christie want to do such a thing? Because Fort Lee Mayor Mark J. Sokolich had refused to endorse Christie’s campaign for re-election — or so the story went.Adding more spice to the tale was speculation over how this might damage or even torpedo Christie’s chance to get the Republican nomination and run for president in 2016. Christie himself, naturally, has denied any knowledge of what was going on. His underlings have either been fired or resigned, like the deputy whose email gloated over the planned closing: “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.”More than meets the eyePerhaps one of the reasons this story received national attention was that it seemed to be a most risky and disproportionate retaliation — making Christie and his appointees look stupid as well as venal. Some media called the traffic tie-up a “crackpot scheme.”But information has started to come out that puts “Bridgegate” in a new light.What had been represented as the spiteful act of a peeved politician may have had a much weightier motivation: It appears that some of Christie’s corporate pals wanted him to lean heavily on Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich because they needed the mayor’s okay on a development scheme worth at least a billion dollars.Asking what could have motivated this enormous and planned traffic jam, Patrick McGeehan wrote in the Jan. 17 New York Times: “Just a block from the three lanes that usually funnel traffic from Fort Lee onto the bridge lie 16 acres of prime land that form the centerpiece of the borough’s grand redevelopment plan. Two neighboring projects there promise to spend about $1 billion to create a complex of luxury apartments, stores, offices and entertainment facilities.”Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski, a leader of one of the state committees looking into Bridgegate, told McGeehan: “A real estate development of this size involves a lot of money. … The actions taken and the response that it generated are so disproportionate to the failure to get an endorsement from the mayor of Fort Lee that it raises my suspicion that this was done for some other reason.”McGeehan says Wisniewski told him that the real estate developments were not a focus of the committee’s investigation. “But, as a real estate lawyer himself, he said he knew that the large sums of money involved in building often fueled corruption among elected and appointed officials. …“That it could be the key to understanding why two executives at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey — Bill Baroni and David Wildstein — would have schemed to disrupt traffic around the bridge for four days last fall ‘is as plausible a theory as any,’ he [Wisniewski] said.“The only direct reference to the [real estate] developments in the documents gathered in the investigations so far,” adds McGeehan, “came in a desperate plea Mayor Sokolich sent to Mr. Baroni, who was the deputy executive director of the Port Authority, on Sept. 12, the fourth straight day that traffic was snarled in his borough.“Near the end of the two-page letter, Mr. Sokolich asked, ‘What do I do when our billion-dollar redevelopment is put online at the end of the next year?’” (New York Times, Jan. 17)Port Authority: playground for the banksThe Port Authority has always been a playground for New York’s wealthiest banks and real estate interests. Was the mayor, at his wit’s end over this manufactured traffic disaster, trying to placate the powers-that-be by asking them what he had to do to make this and future attacks go away?The banks and corporations right now are sitting on trillions of dollars. They are desperate to invest this money where they are guaranteed a big return. A modern high-rise complex just two blocks from the GWB has their salivary glands working overtime.Another New Jersey scandal fits the same pattern. Mayor Dawn Zimmer of Hoboken, N.J., another small city directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, has told federal investigators that Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, a Christie appointee, threatened her with cutting funds provided by the federal government, but managed by the state, to rebuild after widespread destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy — unless Zimmer approved a “redevelopment” project in Hoboken favored by the governor.And who is behind this Hoboken “redevelopment”? The Rockefeller Group, which built Rockefeller Center. It is represented by the law firm Wolff & Samson, whose head, David Samson, was appointed chair of the Port Authority by Christie.Bribers and bribeesWhile a few reporters for the capitalist media, like McGeehan, are digging around for more information about the role of Big Money in all this, most are content with seeing some political hacks’ heads roll.Will the cutthroat billionaires of the Rockefeller Group be penalized for any of this? Never. This system is designed to send poor people to prison for 15 years for such “crimes” as selling a little marijuana. But the money men who, for example, get their underlings to bribe inspectors to keep unsafe mines and factories open, rarely get even a slap on the wrist.Those receiving bribes, if they are small enough to actually need the money, might do a little time if they’re caught. But the millions of dollars that corporate donors shower on their chosen candidates at election time are perfectly legal. In effect, this money is bribery in advance for the anti-worker, anti-poor legislation the public servants of big business are committed to.On the other hand, elected officials, especially those representing oppressed, working-class communities, are disproportionately the focus of racist “sting” operations and found guilty of allegedly taking bribes.But when are the bribers ever punished?Take a bribe and you might go to jail. Give a bribe and you might become governor or head of the Port Authority. It’s the capitalist way.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Remembering Ahmed Kathrada, South Africa anti-apartheid leader

first_imgNelson Mandela & Ahmed KathradaFuneral services were held March 29 for Ahmed Mohamed “Kathy” Kathrada, a longtime member of the South African Communist Party and the African National Congress.  He died at the age of 87 after undergoing neurosurgery. Hundreds of family members and friends attended his memorial and paid tribute to the veteran of the decades-long national liberation struggle that brought the ANC to power in 1994.Born on Aug. 21, 1929, to Indian immigrant parents in the Western Transvaal (now North West Province), Kathrada was subjected to discrimination by the racist system then dominated by the British. The Boers played a supplementary role.In the former Union of South Africa’s (USA) settler-colonial state, Kathrada was instrumental in forming coalitions among the oppressed national groups throughout the country during the 1940s and 1950s. In 1941, at the age of 12, he joined the Young Communist League, an affiliate of the then-called Communist Party of South Africa.Kathrada was heavily influenced by Dr. Yusuf Dadoo, a leader of the Indian Congress movement and the CPSA. Dadoo was an important figure in the Non-European United Front, which initially opposed African and Indian military involvement during World War II’s early phase.After Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, Dadoo and other Communists shifted their positions to support the war on the basis that European fascism was a greater threat to oppressed peoples and Moscow. This position prompted opposition in the NEUF, as many members opposed Africans and Indians fighting in the ranks of the British military under any circumstances.Nonetheless, the CPSA campaigned against racism inside the country during the war and founded the Anti-Segregation Council to oppose the Pegging Act (which restricted land ownership by the Indian population). Later, Dadoo and other leftists turned the tide against more moderate forces in the Indian Congress movement. After World War II, cooperation between the Natal and Transvaal Indian Congresses and the ANC intensified.The ANC Youth League, formed in 1943, drafted its Program of Action in 1949. The post-war atmosphere among Africans and larger sections of South Africa’s Indian population became decisively militant and confrontational against the racist state.These events in the African and Indian congresses led to Kathrada and others more closely cooperating with Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, J.B. Marks and other ANC leaders. In 1947 a major advancement occurred in the national liberation movement with the signing of the Dadoo-Naicker-Xuma Pact. It solidified the ANC/South African Indian Congress alliance. Kathrada was a coordinator of joint actions among the youth wings of the ANC and SAIC.In 1948, the National Party won a substantial margin in the all-white elections, making the Boer ruling elites the leading force within the USA. A renewed system of colonial occupation known as “apartheid” was formerly instituted.Mass struggle and the Congress AllianceDuring the early 1950s, the National Party passed the Suppression of Communism Act, the Pass Laws, Stock Limitation Regulations, the Group Areas Act, the Separate Representation of Voters Act, and the Bantu Authorities Act. (After the CPSA was banned in 1950, leaders reinstated the organization as the South African Communist Party.)  These laws were designed to thwart the burgeoning unity in action among Indian, African, “Colored” and progressive white forces. The Defiance Against Unjust Laws Campaign began in 1952, bringing thousands into the mass struggle to end apartheid.By 1954, the Federation of South African Women (FEDSAW)  was created, bringing together political forces, African, Indian, Colored and left-wing whites, and labor unions. FEDSAW mounted demonstrations against the pass laws, which required Africans to always carry documentation. Without the passes, people could be held in detention.A major advancement in the movement happened on Oct. 27, 1955, after 2,000 women demonstrated at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. The ANC Women’s League and FEDSAW organized the historic action, aimed at delivering a statement demanding the repeal of pass laws. Cabinet ministers refused to accept the documents.The South African History website reads: “Ida Mntwana led the march (October 27, 1955) and the marchers were mainly African women from the Johannesburg region. The Minister of Native Affairs, Dr. Verwoerd … refused to receive a multiracial delegation.” ( a year later a larger demonstration took place — a turning point in the struggle. The same article stresses:  “On August 9, 1956, 20,000 women from all parts of South Africa staged a second march on the Union Buildings. Prime Minister Strijdom, who had been notified of the women`s mission, was not there to receive them.”South African revolution’s armed phase Although under banning orders for political activities, Kathrada was heavily involved in the formation and early operations of the ANC-SACP military wing Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK). In July 1963, after going underground, Kathrada and other other MK leaders were arrested at the Lilliesleaf Farm in Rivonia during a law-enforcement raid. Mandela had been arrested the year before with the CIA’s assistance and charged with leaving the country illegally. Mandela had traveled from 1961 to 1962 to Ethiopia and Morocco to receive military training. He was caught at a roadblock while posing as a driver for a white family.In 1964, Kathrada along with Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Dennis Goldberg, Raymond Mhlaba, Elias Motsoaledi and Andrew Mlangeni were tried for treason and found guilty in an apartheid court. Although they faced the death penalty, this racist court sentenced the ANC-SACP leaders to life in prison without parole and hard labor. Mandela, the last to be released, served over 27 years in prison at Robben Island, Pollsmoor and a  Western Cape residence.By the time the ANC and SACP leaders were released, the support and membership within the national liberation movement had grown exponentially. Under ANC leadership, MK issued a declaration in August 1990 suspending the armed struggle in preparation for negotiations. Attempts to sabotage the transition process caused thousands more people to die in apartheid-regime-backed violence and targeted assassinations.Finally, the ANC won the right to hold democratic elections on April 27-28, 1994. The ANC won nearly two-thirds of the vote in favor of constituting a coalition government with the National Party and other small groupings. The NP withdrew from the government in 1995. The ANC has controlled the South African state’s executive and legislative branches since then.Kathrada and post-apartheid South AfricaKathrada was elected to parliament during the 1994 elections. Five years later he declined to seek re-election, ending his involvement in electoral politics. South Africa has undergone tremendous reforms since then. However, basic aspects of capitalist rule have not been fundamentally altered.Land ownership and control of mining and finance are still major sources of debate and struggle. Factionalism within the ANC, which has always existed to a limited degree, has taken on wider dimensions in recent years.At Kathrada’s memorial, It was mentioned that he had written an open letter to President Jacob Zuma, current ANC leader, suggesting that he should step down in light of accusations of constitutional violations. There, former interim President and then Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe praised Kathrada’s contributions, but said, “It would be disingenuous to pay tribute to the life of comrade Ahmed Kathrada and pretend that he was not deeply disturbed by the current post-apartheid failure of politics.”Zuma was absent from the memorial, explaining that he was respecting the family’s wishes.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

The bill will next be heard by the Senate Committee on Labor, Public Employment and Retirement“Upward mobility is integral to achieving racial justice, and we should be setting the example,” Holden, a former Pasadena City Councilmember, said in a prepared statement. “The existing systems in place at our own state agencies fail to create inclusive workplace environments, and hinder qualified individuals to move on up within their department simply based on the color of their skin.”Data from the California Department of Human Resources shows that the majority of non-White civil service personnel are paid a salary in the “$40,000 and below” range, but when the salary range increases, the percentage of non-White civil servants moving into management positions decreased. The exact opposite takes place for White civil servants.The Sacramento Bee has published a series of letters written on behalf of Black employees working at state agencies such as the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation with detailed accounts of how Black employees are passed up for promotions over White employees. The problem, however, is not limited to upward mobility. In early November, three Black employees at the California Office of Publishing found racial slurs written on cards at their desk.“We already mandated the private sector to do their part. It’s high time for the state to step up and do theirs,” said Holden.AB 105 requires diversity on all state boards and commissions that have volunteers. The bill would also reform processes that hinder upward mobility for people of color in the civil service system, giving attention to compliance, the appeals process, and annual parity goals for upward mobility.In September 2020, California took steps toward addressing racial inequity in the private sector when Gov. Gavin Newsom signed AB 979 (also authored by Holden) that requires diversity on boards of corporations based in California – a policy that will help drive upward mobility for people of color.Specifically AB 105 would:• Require the California State Personnel Board (SPB) to establish a process that includes diversity and best practices in each aspect of the design, announcement, and administration of examinations for the establishment of employment lists.• The bill provides that the Department of Human Resources (CalHR) may develop model upward mobility goals to include race, gender, and LGBTQ as factors to the extent permissible under state and federal equal protection laws.• Require that CalHR submit within its annual workforce analysis and census report all of the adverse actions taken by departments against employees. It calls for the report to include the type of adverse action, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation, if available. The goal is to see if there are patterns of discrimination in the departments.
