We’ll take a look back to this time last year with this great compilation from the November Tests in 2008.Each year the best of the Southern Hemisphere heads up North to take on the best on offer. This year, Argentina, Fiji, and Samoa will also be touring, which makes for an interesting few weeks.It was a Grand Slam winning tour for the All Blacks last year, who beat all before them once again, following on from the success of 2005. This year they’ll be looking to go unbeaten too, with a few new players in the line up that will be out to grab the opportunity.Australia are hoping for a Grand Slam success this year, the first since 1984. They already beat Gloucester, and today go up against the team they lost to in the 2003 World Cup final, England.The Springboks play three Tests, with France, Italy and Ireland all looking to knock them off their perch. They had a bit of a set back last night though, as their second stringers lost to a pumped up Leicester Tigers side. We’ll have highlights of that soon.This video is quite simply a compilation of some of the more memorable moments from last year. Anyone care to place their predictions for what’s going to happen this time around?We’ll have all the best moments from all the biggest matches, right here on RD over the next few weeks.

Refugees part of global crisis

first_imgAlthough many jobs have dried up and developed capitalist countries throughout the world no longer seek as much low-wage labor, people from poor countries wracked by misery and war are taking almost unimaginable risks to make their way to developed countries where they hope for a better future.Often, it is to the very imperialist countries whose ruling classes have for generations fattened off exploiting the labor and resources of their homelands.According to the U.N. High Commissioner on Refugees, even though the flow of people making Mediterranean Sea crossings from Africa to Europe in 2016 has been only about a third of last year, the death rate this year is higher. For the Central Mediterranean route between Libya and Italy, one person has died for each 47 who made it through.Even after refugees reach Europe safely, their reception is not at all assured. In countries like Hungary, which has had a reactionary government since capitalism was restored in 1989, it is downright hostile.France, which once exploited much of Africa as its colonial possession, has a large immigrant population and sports the motto “Liberty, equality and fraternity.” But its reception for refugees is mixed.One of the biggest unofficial camps for refugees in Europe grew up over the past few years near Calais in northern France. Migrants there have been mainly from East Africa — Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia — or Afghanistan, not former French colonies. They gathered in a camp nicknamed “The Jungle” that was close to the tunnel running between France and Britain. The goal of many has been to get to Britain, where some have family ties and the hope of finding jobs. Some 3 million immigrants work in Britain.Various unofficial estimates from charity organizations put the number of refugees who had been living in the Calais camp at between 6,000 and 8,000. One-third were women, and between 1,000 and 2,000 were unaccompanied minors, some as young as 10.Much political maneuvering is taking place in France around the presidential election scheduled for this coming Spring. The semi-fascist National Front, a major political party in France, has been whipping up an anti-immigrant, racist frenzy over the camp. The government of François Holland, which calls itself “Socialist” but serves the interests of the capitalist class, decided to raze the camp and send the people living there to “reception centers” throughout France which were specially built to accommodate immigrants.The Calais camp was completely razed by the end of October, and over 6,000 people were moved by bus to the centers. However, some 1,200 unaccompanied minors, many of whom have family ties to refugees in Britain, were not moved, and a number of them wound up sleeping in the open air for several nights.The British government has accepted a few hundred. Britain and France are arguing over others, who now have accommodations in temporary centers. (Agence France Presse, Nov. 4)A number of refugees didn’t get on the buses from Calais but instead headed to Paris. Some went to a very large encampment in northeast Paris, near the Stalingrad Metro station. The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, estimated it was growing at the rate of 80 to 100 people a day, though not all are coming from Calais.On Nov. 4, for the thirtieth time, the cops dispersed this encampment and sent around 3,500 people to reception centers. (La Croix, Nov. 4)Telesur reported on Oct. 10 that young people from Paris’ immigrant suburbs had started a program of providing refugees sleeping on the streets with free meals. Soon after the article was posted, the project went viral online.“We also are children of immigrants, we grew up in poverty; the principle of sharing is part of who we are,” said Souleymane, a resident of the Sarcelles suburb where the project began.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities seize independent newspaper’s entire print run

first_imgNews Follow the news on Belarus January 16, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities seize independent newspaper’s entire print run RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 28, 2021 Find out more News to go further BelarusEurope – Central Asia News “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Watch a video on what happened (Nash Dom TV)Read Vitebsky Kuryer online (Russian, Belarussian)Website of the “Free Ales Bialiatski!” campaign RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Reporters Without Borders deplores the arbitrary seizure three days ago of the entire print run of the independent regional weekly Vitebsky Kuryer .A truck carrying 10,000 copies of the newspaper from its printing plant in the Russian city of Smolensk was stopped by traffic police and escorted to a police station. Officers gave no reason for their action but the newspaper’s editor, Vadzim Barshcheuski, said a prosecution for illegal distribution in Belarus was likely to follow.“An act of censorship on this scale is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Once and for all, the authorities must stop trying to prevent the distribution of independent newspapers. And Russia should remind its neighbour to respect the ‘single information space’ shared by the two countries.”The weekly is officially registered in Russia and, like hundreds of Russian periodicals freely available in Belarus, it is entitled to be distributed without restriction. As part of their customs union, the two countries are linked by an agreement providing for a joint “information space”. The municipality of Vitebsk has refused to grant the newspaper a distribution licence in the town, a decision backed by the Supreme Economic Court in 2010. “Obviously, the authorities find the simple truth (published in our newspaper) even more dangerous than opposition periodicals,” Barshcheuski, told Reporters Without Borders.He believed the seizure could be linked to the position taken by the newspaper in the run-up to parliamentary elections due in September this year. Other sources pointed out that the edition that was seized contained an article on the case of Ales Bialiatski, the head of the Vyasna human rights organization and vice-president of the International Federation for Human Rights, who was jailed for four-and-a-half years last August for “tax evasion”.Thanks to its independent status, Vitebsky Kuryer has succeeded in becoming part of the media landscape since it was founded in September 2009. By February 2010, its circulation had risen from 1,000 to 10,000. However, it was dropped from the official distribution network and has since been distributed by volunteers. Just as the original newspaper it took its name from, the weekly has been the target of constant harassment by the authorities. Its entire print run has been seized several times, most recently last October before the local elections. It has also had to migrate its Web portal to another platform after it was blocked by the state telecoms monopoly Beltelecom in July 2010.In April last year, Barshcheuski was among 18 people arrested in Minsk as they celebrated the birthday of the human rights campaigner, Valery Shchukin. The journalist was sentenced to 10 days’ imprisonment for “disorderly conduct”.Reporters Without Borders also demands the immediate and unconditional release of Alyaksandr Barazenka, a journalist with Belsat TV who was arrested on 9 January and sentenced to 11 days’ imprisonment for filming a picket outside the offices of the KGB in Minsk.He immediately began a hunger strike in protest against his imprisonment. On 11 January the prison authorities allowed him to receive a parcel from his colleague Yulia Darashkevich but he was prevented from seeing his lawyer who wanted to ask about his state of health and discuss a possible appeal.

Frigid weather takes toll on poultry farmers

first_img Published 11:32 pm Wednesday, January 29, 2014 Jimmy Shaver said that he, too, was the recipient of the luck of the draw.“My birds are okay,” he said Wednesday. “They’re six weeks old and they can survive the cold. I was lucky because the propane gas company, UPG, has shut of gas to all poultry farms. They’re just going to serve residential customers.”Shaver said that he had to cut off his ventilation system due to the shortage of gas.

So this has been a hard winter for poultry farmers around here.”“Hard winter” doesn’t tell the real story for poultry farmers like Ronnie Lester who was waiting anxiously and hopefully Wednesday afternoon for a load of propane gas. The extremely cold weather is taking its toll on poultry farms around the county. To what extent depends on the age of the birds.James and Elizabeth Motes escaped Winter Storm Leon by the length of chicken’s beak.“Our chickens were scheduled to be picked up Tuesday morning and they got them all by 7 a.m.” Elizabeth Motes said. “We were lucky.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Lester said that, if he didn’t get the gas by 8:30 Thursday morning, he would lose 110,000 week-old chicks.“UPG has cut us off,” he said. “Ted Casey has a small operation in Andalusia and he’s trying to get me a load of gas but he can’t get here because of the ice on the roads. But I told him what we can’t do, we can’t do. I don’t want him taking any chances on the roads.”Because his chickens are so young, Lester said, without gas heat, they don’t generate enough body heat to keep them alive.“When we first get biddies, the houses have to be kept at 90 degrees and, with the weather as cold as it’s been, that takes a lot of gas,” Lester said. “The biddies are a week old and the houses have to be at 82 degrees. Already, I’ve spent $12,000 on gas and, if I don’t get a load by Thursday morning, I lose six houses of biddies. One hundred and ten thousand of them.”Frank Talbot has young birds but his propane gas tanks are full and his biddies are doing all right. He is getting gas from Opeleika.“The tanks are coming down fast but we’ve dropped the set point a little and that helps some,” he said. “Right now, we’re okay but we’re burning up gas. As long as we can get gas we can make it but the trucks can’t get on the roads because of the ice. Hopefully, the weather will warm up and ice will melt and the gas will be available. All poultry farmers need that to happen.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell Frigid weather takes toll on poultry farmers Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
