England v New Zealand: The record-setting teams compared

Photo: Getty Images Power surge: Joe Marler takes on Jonny Gray during the Six Nations. Photo: Getty ImagesMarler won his 50th cap against Scotland and has impressed both at scrum time and in the loose during the championship, keeping Mako Vunipola on the bench. Either of those Englishmen would get into this combined XV ahead of Moody, not only because of their experience but because of their impact with ball in hand.Winner: Joe MarlerDylan Hartley v Dane ColesHartley is revered by his coaches and team-mates for his leadership qualities. His lineout work against the Scots was pinpoint and he contributes a lot in the tight – but he is often withdrawn early in the second half as Jamie George offers more around the park.Full stretch: Dane Coles crosses for a try against the Wallabies. Photo: Getty ImagesColes, in contrast, is an all-action hooker and often finds himself in open spaces for the All Blacks, showing skills and pace more recognisable in a back. He doesn’t neglect his set-piece duties either and must have pushed Beauden Barrett close in the race to be World Rugby Player of the Year in 2016.Winner: Dane ColesDan Cole v Owen FranksCole is a mainstay for England – he’s been in the international set-up since 2010, won 76 caps (73 for England and three for the Lions) and is the only player to have started all 18 of the Tests in this run. Solid in the scrum, he also gets stuck in at the contact area, but he does have a tendency to give away penalties.Thirsty work: Owen Franks drinks from the Bledisloe Cup. Photo: Getty ImagesFranks is the All Blacks’ rock at tighthead and has won back-to-back World Cups. Not as showy as some other All Black front-towers but a reliable workhorse regarded as the best tighthead in the world by many experts.Winner: Owen FranksJoe Launchbury v Brodie RetallickWorld Rugby Player of the Year in 2014, Retallick is something of a benchmark for modern-day locks. The 25-year-old excels at the basics – lineout, scrum, breakdown – but stands out for his work in open play, surging through defences and upfield with strong carries and showing surprisingly deft hands for a big man.Decision time: Brodie Retallick weighs up his options against France. Photo: Getty ImagesLaunchbury has been England’s best forward in this Six Nations – Man of the Match against Wales and Italy, he was also to the fore in the Calcutta Cup game. He gets through a huge amount of work and is particularly adept at winning turnovers, or at least slowing down opposition ball.This is a tight call but Retallick’s importance to the All Blacks was shown by his absence against Ireland in Chicago, when their winning run was brought to an end.Winner: Brodie RetallickCourtney Lawes v Sam WhitelockTwo athletic locks who have been involved in their international set-ups since 2009 and 2010 respectively. Whitelock has been the more consistent of the two, missing only ten of New Zealand’s 94 Tests since his debut against Ireland. He’s seen as a leader in this All Blacks squad and is a great lineout operator.Rising high: Courtney Lawes rules at the lineout. Photo: Getty ImagesLawes has been more up and down, his momentum often stalled by injuries. He was expected to become something of an enforcer in the England engine room but has started less than half their matches since he came onto the scene. However, in this championship he has excelled – dominating the lineout, producing his trademark big hits and switching to the back row at scrum time as needed.Winner: Courtney LawesMaro Itoje v Jerome KainoThis is a case of the new star against the wily veteran. Kaino was one of the All Blacks’ standout performers in their 2011 World Cup win, went to play in Japan for a couple of years, returned to New Zealand and won back his place in the national side, playing a key role in their 2015 triumph too.Hard running: Maro Itoje runs into Scotland’s Finn Russell. Photo: Getty ImagesSuch has been Itoje’s impact at senior level for club and country that it is easy to forget that he made his Test debut only 13 months ago. He seems to rise to every occasion and in this championship has been playing at blindside given England’s injuries in the back row, albeit that he has been packing down in the second row at scrum time.Both are rounded players but Itoje’s continuing upward trajectory puts him in front.Winner: Maro ItojeJames Haskell v Matt ToddIn 2016 Sam Cane was generally chosen to fill the No 7 shirt worn for so long by double World Cup-winning captain Richie McCaw in the No 7 shirt while many Kiwis felt Ardie Savea should be start at openside, but it was Crusader Todd who was picked for the decisive 18th Test win over Australia with Cane ruled out by injury. Todd’s Test opportunities have been limited over the years and they are likely to remain so with Cane and Savea above him in the pecking order.Red alert: James Haskell on a burst against Italy. Photo: Getty ImagesHaskell is England’s longest server having made his debut ten years ago but he’s played his best rugby under Eddie Jones. The combination of Chris Robshaw and Haskell at six and seven in 2016 was key for England, and Haskell has returned from injury in this tournament to become a key force once again. He’s not an openside in the traditional sense but his work-rate and mentality in defence stand out.Winner: James HaskellNathan Hughes v Kieran ReadIt’s fair to say Hughes has not made the same impact at Test level as he has for Wasps, defences closing him down quickly so he is unable to make his half-breaks and offload to those in support – the hallmark of his game.Read is regarded as one of the best players in the world in any position. In fact, former England fly-half Stuart Barnes wrote in Rugby World last year that only All Blacks scrum-half Aaron Smith was better than him.Leading man: Kieran Read with a back-handed offload v South Africa. Photo: Getty ImagesLast year Read had less opportunity to showcase his talents in attack and had Billy Vunipola started against Scotland there would have been more debate over this position for the Saracen invariably gets over the gain-line and is vital to this England team’s game plan. As he was on the bench, Read is in – and captain of our combined XV. We rate the players who set the 18-Test winning runs for England and the All Blackscenter_img England equalled New Zealand’s record for the most consecutive Test wins by a Tier One nation when beating Scotland in the Six Nations. But which team is better?Looking at the stats over the two runs, the All Blacks’ figures are more impressive: 751 points scored, including 104 tries, and 253 conceded, which is around just 14 a game. England have notched 72 tries and 621 points while conceding 300 in their 18 wins.Rugby World decided to do something a little different, however, so we have compared and contrasted the players who started the decisive 18th International victory for each team – the Calcutta Cup win for England and the victory over Australia in October 2016 for the ABs – and picked who would make a composite XV. Will you agree with our choices in this England v New Zealand debate?Mike Brown v Ben SmithThere is no doubting Brown’s passion or commitment and he’s become something of an immovable object at full-back for England since 2013. He’s solid under the high ball and shows a willingness to counter-attack from deep – but the major flaw in his game is his reluctance to pass. He will often choose to take the ball into contact rather than pass to a team-mate, leading to missed opportunities.First 15: Ben Smith breaks clear against Australia. Photo: Getty ImagesIn contrast, Smith is a creator. He may be mocked by team-mates for his pale skin but his attacking play is bright and vivid. He is consistent in his performances – when he knocked on against Wales in a Test last June, one journalist quipped that it was the first mistake he’d made in three years! – but is unpredictable with ball in hand and has the vision to put himself or team-mates into space. Pure class.Winner: Ben SmithJack Nowell v Israel DaggThis is a tough one. Dagg’s poor form meant he wasn’t selected for RWC 2015 and he admitted he wasn’t enjoying his rugby. An injury-enforced break meant he returned last year reinvigorated and playing some of his best rugby – he scored ten tries in 12 Tests in 2016.Chief purpose: Jack Nowell scores his second try against Italy. Photo: Getty ImagesNowell, too, has had his injury woes but his work-rate is what sets him apart. He doesn’t stand on his wing waiting for the ball; his blue scrum cap pops up all over the pitch and he is a brilliant defender. It’s his industry that sees the Exeter Chief edge this particular battle.Winner: Jack NowellJonathan Joseph v Anton Lienert-Brown The Englishman is the more experienced of the pair and showed with his hat-trick against Scotland what a dangerous player he is. He has fabulous footwork and a lot of pace, as well as an intuitive understanding with George Ford, but his form has been a little up and down over the past six months.Centre points: Jonathan Joseph en route to one of his three tries v Scotland. Photo: Getty ImagesLienert-Brown made his All Blacks debut last August and did well, his distribution and support play particularly noteworthy. He was unfazed by the pressure of replacing such a class act as Conrad Smith at outside-centre and slotted into the All Blacks back-line with ease, but does he have the same ability of Joseph to produce a match-winning moment? Perhaps not. At least not yet.Winner: Jonathan JosephOwen Farrell v Ryan CrottyHad Manu Tuilagi been fit when Eddie Jones took charge of England, he may never have looked at the Ford-Farrell 10-12 partnership. Yet it has proved so effective it’s hard to see it changing any time soon.Kicking king: Owen Farrell is England’s second highest point-scorer of all time. Photo: Getty ImagesFarrell is a crucial cog in this England team. His goalkicking (bar the blip against Italy!) is unerring – he’s slotted 259 points for England in their 18 wins, more than 200 ahead of the next highest scorer, Jonathan Joseph (55) – and the team also benefit from his pinpoint distribution and boot in open play.Crotty, like Lienert-Brown, is overshadowed somewhat by his predecessor, Ma’a Nonu. He’s a solid player but is nowhere near as pivotal to the All Blacks’ game as Farrell is to England’s – for that reason the Saracen gets the nod.Winner: Owen FarrellElliot Daly v Julian SaveaDaly’s impact on the Scotland game was limited given that he was replaced early having been on the receiving end of a dangerous tackle by Fraser Brown, but he had been England’s outstanding back in the championship up to that point. There’s the high work-rate, the pace, the vision – and that huge left boot. And the centre has been playing out of position on the wing.All smiles: Julian Savea runs in one of his 45 Test tries for New Zealand. Photo: Getty ImagesCould anyone keep Savea out of a combined team though? He might not have been as prolific as usual in 2016 but his try-scoring rate cannot be ignored. He’s now notched 45 in 52 Tests and is so hard to stop he terrifies any defence.Winner: Julian SaveaGeorge Ford v Beauden Barrett These two are from the same school of fly-halves – visionary, risk-takers, exciting to watch. They both see opportunity where others see none and have the ability to delight crowds with their innovative and bold play. Ford is thriving alongside Farrell while Barrett has grown in confidence since taking the No 10 shirt from Aaron Cruden last June.Skip to it: Beauden Barrett tests Argentina’s defence. Photo: Getty ImagesA tight call but the reigning World Player of the Year, with his consistently high attacking standards and ability to change a game with kicks and flicks, is favoured.Winner: Beauden BarrettBen Youngs v TJ Perenara The Leicester Tiger has fallen short of the levels he hit in the autumn series during this Six Nations, but he still has a balanced skill-set. Good game management, great box-kicker, the eye for a gap – not to mention those dummies he threw last autumn.Passion player: TJ Perenara leads the haka in Chicago. Photo: Getty ImagesPerenara is more of a livewire who looks to snipe around the breakdown, but he can also control a game and is a smart operator. He has the ability to up the tempo of a game when necessary, too, which would suit this combined back-line.Winner: TJ PerenaraJoe Marler v Joe MoodyBoth these men are big characters off the pitch, known for their sense of humour. Moody was called into the 2015 World Cup squad as an injury replacement for Tony Woodcock, ended up starting the final and has retained the No 1 jersey since New Zealand lifted the trophy at that tournament.

Rapidísimas

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR En menos de una hora el mundo supo la noticia de la muerte del presidente de Venezuela, Hugo Chávez Frías después de larga lucha contra el cáncer. Los informes oficiales sobre su estado aumentaron la ansiedad de su pueblo al extremo que un periódico publicó como titular “Chavismo acosado por creciente descontento” ante ausencia de prueba fidedigna de la situación del presidente. El 4 de marzo llegó la noticia que resonó en América Latina y el resto del mundo. Chávez de 58 años de edad y militar de carrera, gobernó a Venezuela por casi 14 años y creó una alianza latinoamericana nunca antes vista.Al día siguiente aparecieron los comentarios de amigos y enemigos. Muchos alabaron su valor de enfrentarse a Estados Unidos y otros criticaron sus métodos autoritarios. A muchos venezolanos les dolía que mientras que en el país había escasez Chávez obsequiaba petróleo a otros países. Los que más exteriorizaron su tristeza fueron las clases pobres que decían que por primera vez el gobierno se ocupaba de ellos mediante programas médicos y distribución de alimentos básicos.El día miércoles el mundo vio su cortejo fúnebre formado por decenas de miles de personas que caminaron 8 kilómetros para llevar su cadáver a la Academia Militar de Caracas donde ha sido expuesto. El pueblo ha hecho largas filas para decirle adiós al hombre que encarnó las esperanzas de muchos. Su cuerpo será embalsamado.En los últimos días se han celebrado oficios religiosos tanto en Venezuela como en otras partes de América Latina. Encima de la cabecera del ataúd cuelga un enorme crucifijo que representa una fe que aparentemente significó mucho en sus últimos días. “Cristo no me llames todavía, tengo mucho que hacer aquí”, palabras que dijo con frecuencia. Chávez será sepultado el viernes. La cadena Univisión está preparando un reportaje titulado “La fortuna de Chávez”.La gran incógnita que queda por resolverse será quién continuará su obra. La constitución es clara en cuanto a la sucesión presidencial pero evidentemente hay más de una interpretación. Por lo pronto se sabe que según el mandato constitucional habrá que convocar a elecciones en los próximos 30 días.Desde esta pequeña columna deseamos al querido pueblo venezolano que todo se resuelva en paz y tranquilidad para bien de todos y ejemplo para la humanidad. Esperamos que la cordialidad, la tolerancia y los buenos sentimientos prevalezcan en todo momento. Nos viene a la mente la famosa frase de Voltaire: “No estoy de acuerdo con nada de lo que dices pero daría mi vida por el derecho que tienes de decirlo”. Amén.El cónclave para la elección de un nuevo papa está al comenzar. La agencia Zenit anunció que el jueves pasado llegó a Roma el cardenal elector 115 el cardenal vietnamita Jean-Baptiste Pham Minh Man que inmediatamente prestó el juramento reglamentario. Es arzobispo de la ciudad de Ho Chi Minh.Citando el principio de igualdad que impulsó la creación de Estados Unidos, el presidente Barack Obama se pronunció el viernes contra la ley de California que prohíbe el matrimonio gay y dijo que la Corte Suprema debe derogarla. “Creo que es importante que digamos lo que creemos y lo que esta administración defiende”, dijo el presidente.Rosa María Payá, hija del disidente cubano Oswaldo Payá sigue sosteniendo que la muerte de su padre el 22 de julio del 2012, mientras iba en un coche hacia el oriente de Cuba, no fue un accidente, versión que apoya Ángel Carromero, el dirigente español encausado y responsabilizado por el suceso. Añadió que el auto en el que viajaban fue embestido por otro vehículo. El gobierno cubano había dicho que el auto iba a exceso de velocidad.Un tribunal de Milán ha condenado a un año de cárcel al ex presidente del gobierno italiano Silvio Berlusconi por el sonado caso Unipol, la publicación de manera ilícita de escuchas telefónicas en el diario Il Giornale, propiedad de su hermano Paolo que recibió una condena de dos años y tres meses.Todos los días leemos sobre la mala situación económica de España, el aumento del desempleo y hasta casos de corrupción. En un importante encuentro entre el Manchester United y el Real Madrid más de 3,000 españoles viajaron a Inglaterra para el evento. ¿Cuestión de prioridades o es que la cosa no está tan mala?VERDAD.

Construire une « Communauté bien-aimée » à Atlanta et au-delà

first_img de David PaulsenPosted Aug 5, 2016 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Martinsville, VA La Commission du Diocèse d’Atlanta pour le démantèlement du racisme organise une formation en février à la Cathédrale St. Philip. Photo : Catherine Meeks[Episcopal News Service] Des scènes de violence et des manifestations se sont déroulées avec une fréquence brutale dans une Amérique divisée habituée à voir de telles actualités sous l’angle racial.Deux hommes noirs sont abattus par des policiers en Louisiane et au Minnesota. Les manifestants se rassemblent derrière des bannières de « Black Lives Matter » [Mouvement Les vies noires comptent]. Des embuscades à Dallas et à Baton-Rouge font huit morts parmi les forces de police. D’autres meurtres d’hommes noirs commis par la police sont signalés à travers les États-Unis.« Nous qui sommes chrétiens sommes appelés à nous interposer entre et au milieu de tout cela, en essayant d’offrir une alternative à simplement déborder de haine et de rage » déclare Catherine Meeks, figure de proue des efforts continus de l’Église épiscopale de lutte contre le racisme dans la structure de l’église, de ses congrégations et dans la société.Catherine Meeks, professeur en études afro-américaines à la retraite, est à la tête de la : Communauté bien-aimée : Commission pour le démantèlement du racisme du Diocèse d’Atlanta. Cette commission et d’autres comme elle dans le pays font partie de la mission de l’Église épiscopale visant, depuis de nombreuses années, à démanteler le racisme et à s’attaquer au racisme institutionnel dans l’église qui, selon certains, remonte aux tout premiers peuplements européens en Amérique.L’église en 2000 a imposé une formation anti-racisme pour les dirigeants à tous les niveaux de l’église mais certains diocèses n’ont pas mis en application ces plans. Selon Catherine Meeks, il y avait une certaine réticence de la part des dirigeants de ces paroisses qui voyaient cette formation comme excessivement institutionnelle.Catherine Meeks dirige la commission d’Atlanta depuis quatre ans pendant lesquels elle a réussi et reçu des éloges pour avoir mis l’accent sur le cheminement spirituel. Le diocèse et elle sont à la pointe du changement qui consiste à voir la question raciale d’une manière plus active sous l’angle de la spiritualité tout en élaborant des formations qui y correspondent.« Le racisme est une question spirituelle et il doit être abordé de cette manière » explique Catherine Meek. « Le démantèlement du racisme fait partie de la formation spirituelle, de la même façon que d’aller à l’église chaque dimanche ».« Silence et complicité historiques »La question du racisme revient constamment à la Convention général de l’église, qui se tient tous les trois ans. Là, c’est une question de foi.Par le baptême tous les peuples sont vus comme des enfants de Dieu, quelle que soit leur race. Le racisme « nous empêche de devenir la communauté bien-aimée à laquelle notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ nous convie dans le Pacte du baptême » déclare l’église dans une résolution de 1994. L’église souligne que le racisme est un péché qui doit être surmonté – par les fidèles et par l’institution elle-même.Une résolution approuvée lors de la Convention générale de 1991 a décidé que l’église devait « s’attaquer au racisme institutionnel existant au sein de notre Église et dans la société » et une résolution de 2000 a renouvelé cet engagement pour une nouvelle période de neuf ans, déplorant « le silence et la complicité historiques de notre église vis-à-vis du pêché du racisme ».« Cela remonte à nos racines » déclare le Révérend Charles Allen Wynder Jr., diacre au service de l’Évêque Président Michael Curry en qualité de missionnaire pour la justice sociale et la défense des droits.Charles Wynder, épiscopalien de longue date qui habite maintenant en Caroline du Nord, est à l’origine de Hampton en Virginie, lieu de l’un des premiers peuplements européens en Amérique et de l’une de ses premières églises, St. John’s Episcopal Church, comme il le fait remarquer. C’est également là que certains des premiers esclaves sont arrivés au Nouveau Monde et, tout comme dans l’histoire des États-Unis, l’oppression des Africains et des autres gens de couleur allait devenir profondément enracinée dans l’histoire de l’Église épiscopale.« L’église était là au début et elle était complice » nous confie Charles Wynder.Il cite des exemples pris au fil des années, depuis les fermes du Sud d’avant la guerre de Sécession appelées « glebes » qui étaient la propriété des paroisses et où travaillaient des esclaves, jusqu’à la controverse en 1963 dans le Diocèse d’Atlanta où la Lovett School avait refusé l’admission à l’école du fils du Révérend Martin Luther King Jr.Les efforts de l’église visant à démanteler le racisme revêtent une plus grande urgence cette année en raison des violences meurtrières en Louisiane, au Minnesota et au Texas, écrit Charles Wynder dans un récent article intitulé « Bloody July » [Juillet sanglant] pour The Living Church. « Il faut que la justice et la réconciliation raciales soient à l’ordre du jour de l’Église » y écrit-il. « Force est pour nous de le reconnaître ».Catherine Meeks, elle aussi, voit son travail dans le contexte de ce qui se passe au niveau national bien que sa priorité immédiate soit sa propre ville.«La question raciale est comme un fil conducteur présent tout au long quasiment de l’existence d’Atlanta et nous sommes, comme beaucoup d’autres villes, en quelque sorte sur la corde raide en ce moment » déclare-t-elle.Rattacher la question raciale au cheminement spirituelCatherine Meeks rappelle aux chrétiens qu’ils sont engagés à vie dans un cheminement spirituel et que le racisme n’est pas un problème qui peut être résolu en une journée de formation.L’exigence d’organisation de formations anti-racistes a constitué un défi pour les diocèses du pays pendant des années. Les participants en ont souvent ressenti l’obligation mais n’en ont pas ressenti la valeur, particulièrement en ce qui concerne les séances qui durent habituellement deux jours. Le terme « anti-racisme » lui-même était problématique, ajoute Catherine Meeks, c’est pourquoi le diocèse d’Atlanta l’a changé en « démantèlement du racisme » dans le nom de la commission et y a ajouté « Communauté bien-aimée ».Sous la direction de Catherine Meeks, les formations ont évolué. Elles ont été condensées en une journée de 9h à 16h et le lieu était important. Catherine Meeks a trouvé qu’il était plus chaleureux que les séances de formation se tiennent dans les églises paroissiales plutôt que dans la cathédrale.Mais surtout, les séances devaient être centrées sur la formation spirituelle. Chaque séance commence maintenant par l’Eucharistie, donnant ainsi le ton pour les enseignements qui suivent.Le diocèse, à l’image de l’Église épiscopale, est principalement blanc mais Catherine Meeks essaie de veiller à ce qu’il y ait une certaine diversité dans la pièce où se trouvent 20 à 25 participants alors qu’elle démarre les exercices du jour. Les prêtres, les diacres, les séminaristes, les administrateurs de paroisse et autres laïcs sont invités à se souvenir du moment où ils ont pour la première fois pris conscience de la question raciale. Un autre exercice vise à les faire réfléchir à leurs propres préjugés. Après une courte pause déjeuner, la formation aborde des sujets plus épineux, comme le concept du privilège des blancs.Le groupe cite aussi les Écritures. Il prie à trois reprises. Et à la fin de la séance, les participants font part des moments de la journée où ils ont ressenti la présence de Dieu.« Cette formation a complètement changé la manière dont je vois les choses et en fait dont je vois ma vie dorénavant » explique Leah Tennille.Leah Tennille, âgée de 33 ans, a été élue au conseil de l’Urban League of Greater Atlanta, où elle est l’une des trois administrateurs blancs – « C’était la première fois de ma vie où je me trouvais en minorité dans la salle » et le recteur de son église l’a encouragée à essayer l’une des formations de Catherine Meeks au début de cette année.Elle a apprécié le fait que la séance commence par la communion et que Catherine Meeks crée un espace sécurisant où tout le monde puisse parler honnêtement de la question raciale. Lors d’un exercice d’écoute, les participants sont groupés deux par deux pour faire part d’un moment où ils se sont senti blessés par quelqu’un d’une autre race.Les formations ont également impressionné Joyce Smith Hendricks, qui a assisté à une séance l’automne dernier car elle fait partie du comité de recrutement d’un nouveau recteur pour sa paroisse dans la banlieue d’Atlanta.Joyce Smith Hendricks, âgée de 66 ans, à présent retraitée après avoir travaillé dans la finance et la comptabilité, dit qu’elle a senti les effets du racisme sur le lieu de travail lorsque des collègues lui communiquaient des attentes différentes du fait qu’elle était une femme noire.« J’ai pratiquement tout le temps été l’exception à la règle. « Oh vous, vous êtes noire, vous êtes différente du reste » » s’entendait-elle dire.Les participants à sa séance sur le démantèlement du racisme étaient pour la plupart des blancs mais, venant d’horizons très divers, ils en ont retiré quelque chose de positif, confie Joyce Smith Hendricks.Leah Tennille, qui possède une entreprise qui aide les organismes à but non lucratif en matière de subventions, reconnait que la formation de Catherine Meeks « nous a réunis en tant qu’épiscopaliens »« Nous sommes tous d’Atlanta mais nous venons de différentes paroisses et de différentes communautés » explique-t-elle. Le démantèlement du racisme, c’est « voir le visage de Dieu dans l’autre ».Une mission au-delà d’AtlantaQuatorze formations sont prévues cette année et leur nombre devrait parvenir à 20 l’année prochaine. Les gens détestaient y assister, avoue Catherine Meeks, mais maintenant la demande est croissante.Une délégation de la Nouvelle-Orléans est venue à Atlanta en février pour en savoir davantage sur les formations de démantèlement du racisme du Diocèse d’Atlanta. On voit, à partir de la gauche, Trevor-David Bryan, Pat Corderman, Dan Krutz, Lindsey Ardrey, aux côtés de Robert Wright, l’Évêque d’Atlanta. Photo : Catherine MeeksDans le même temps, les diocèses partout dans le pays essaient de tirer les enseignements de la réussite d’Atlanta et des délégations de Chicago et de la Nouvelle-Orléans se sont rendues à Atlanta pour voir de près le travail de la commission.« Je vois beaucoup de similitudes entre nos luttes et ce à quoi Atlanta devait faire face » nous dit Lindsey Ardrey, co-présidente de la  Commission de réconciliation raciale du Diocèse de Louisiane.Après que Catherine Meeks se soit rendue à la Nouvelle-Orléans en décembre pour rencontrer la commission de Lindsey Ardrey, Lindsey et trois autres personnes se sont rendues à Atlanta en février pour assister en personne à l’une des formations de Catherine Meeks.« Ce que j’apprécie… c’est qu’il n’y est absolument pas question de culpabilité » déclare Lindsey Ardrey, se joignant aux autres dans leur éloge du fondement spirituel du programme.Les enseignements tirés à Atlanta guident la réponse du diocèse de Louisiane aux récentes tueries qui ont eu lieu à Baton Rouge. Dans un cas, la commission est invitée à fournir des ressources pour aider un lycée épiscopal de la ville à débattre de la violence avec des étudiants quand ils rentrent cet automne.« Il nous faut en parler » ajoute Lindsey Ardrey. « Nous avons prétendu que la question raciale n’avait pas d’importance et qu’aucun de nous ne percevait les couleurs et de toute évidence ce n’est pas le cas».À la lumière des événements actuels, Catherine Meeks ressent un « sentiment d’urgence à redresser certaines de ces choses ». Sa priorité actuelle reste au niveau local.« J’aimerais voir la commission disparaître progressivement » nous confie Catherine Meeks, envisageant un avenir idéal où les travaux commencés par la commission parviendraient organiquement au niveau paroisse, voire même d’une personne à l’autre.Une telle vision est loin de la réalité mais Catherine Meeks est encore convaincue que les gens peuvent prendre ce qu’ils apprennent lors des séances de formation et l’appliquer immédiatement pour lutter contre le racisme dans leur propre vie et dans leur communauté.« Pour les chrétiens, une partie du travail ne se fait pas dans l’église, il se fait à l’extérieur de l’église » explique-t-elle. « L’église n’est que le poste de ravitaillement  ».– David Paulsen est un rédacteur indépendant de Milwaukee (Wisconsin) et membre de la Trinity Episcopal Church de Wauwatosa.

75 year old editor U Win Tin must be immediately released

first_imgNews US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture May 31, 2021 Find out more RSF_en MyanmarAsia – Pacific to go further Receive email alerts Follow the news on Myanmar Help by sharing this information News July 4, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 75 year old editor U Win Tin must be immediately released center_img RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum May 26, 2021 Find out more Amnesty International, International PEN, and Reporters without Borders (Reporters sans Frontieres) today urged the State Peace and Democracy Council (SPDC) to immediately and unconditionally release U Win Tin, a Burmese editor and National League for Democracy (NLD) advisor. He was arrested 16 years ago, on 4 July 1989, and is serving a 20 year prison sentence. He is Myanmar’s longest serving prisoner of conscience. In three weeks time Win Tin should be eligible for release with time off for good behaviour. He and other victims of abuses of the justice system, who should never have been imprisoned in the first place, must be released, immediately and without conditions. Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders have delivered petitions for his release to Myanmar (Burma) embassies in Paris and London and will be sending further petitions to Myanmar diplomatic representatives in Hong Kong. U Win Tin has been imprisoned for the last 16 years on account of his peaceful political opposition to authorities. He has been denied basic rights, including the right to a fair trial, to writing materials and to humane prison conditions. His imprisonment highlights how the justice system in Myanmar has been misused in order to silence peaceful exercise of the right to freedom of expression. U Win Tin was imprisoned because of his senior position in the National League for Democracy (NLD), and was sentenced to further years in prison for attempting to inform the United Nations of ongoing human rights violations in prisons in Myanmar. Authorities also accused him of writing a magazine and poems to be circulated in prison, where possession of writing materials was banned by authorities. He has been in a poor state of health, exacerbated by his treatment in prison, which has included torture, inadequate access to medical treatment, being held in a cell designed for military dogs, without bedding, and being deprived of food and water for long periods of time. Background Among the more than 1,350 political prisoners in Myanmar, there are many prisoners of conscience who have been penalized for peaceful exercise of the right to freedom of expression, including being penalized for photocopying leaflets without official permission and for possessing literature and political journals produced outside Myanmar. This includes U Win Htein, whom authorities sentenced for allegedly requesting a former student political prisoner to talk to foreign journalists about torture. Many are elderly or infirm, or have been given such lengthy prison sentences that they are not scheduled to be released until they are in their 70s or 80s. The authorities continue to arrest and hold political activists incommunicado, deny them access to lawyers and due process of law, and to harass former political prisoners and activists.

Website accused of contempt in another sign of decline in Malaysia

first_img February 22, 2021 Find out more News News MalaysiaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independence InternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Malaysian justice system to drop the spurious contempt of court proceedings against the news website Malaysiakini and its editor-in-chief Steven Gan over readers’ comments critical of the judiciary, and calls on Malaysia’s new government to show that it is determined to defend press freedom. When a federal court hears the case on 13 July, there is no limit to the length of the prison sentence it could impose on Steven Gan or the size of the fine it could impose on Malaysiakini if it finds them guilty of contempt.Initiating the proceedings, attorney-general Idrus Harun accused Malaysiakini of “facilitating” the posting of “unwarranted” and “demeaning” attacks on the judiciary by readers beneath an article on 9 June reporting that the courts were going to reopen after the coronavirus lockdown.Malaysiakini’s moderators took the comments down as soon as the police drew them to the website’s attention two days after they had been posted.When Gan logically called for the proceedings to be withdrawn at a pre-trial hearing on 2 July, the judge ruled: “By virtue of Section 114A of the Evidence Act 1950, the respondents are presumed to have published the impugned comments.” He added that, “the presumption is a rebuttable one.” Grotesque charges“We call on the federal court’s judges to immediately abandon these utterly grotesque charges against Steven Gan and Malaysiakini,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “Malaysia’s ranking in the World Press Freedom Index that RSF published earlier this year improved more than any other country, but we have seen an alarming surge in violations of journalistic freedom since the new coalition government took over four months ago. We call on Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s government to halt this dangerous trend by rejecting the past practice of censoring and harassing reporters.”After a change of government through the polls in May 2018, the first in modern Malaysia’s history, the overall environment for journalists improved dramatically, above all because they were no longer being subjected to the prosecutions that the previous prime minister, Najib Razak, had orchestrated against them.But press freedom violations have risen since the fall of Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s reformist government in February. The latest is yesterday’s intimidatory announcement by the police, which RSF condemned in a tweet, that they are going to investigate Al Jazeera’s Kuala Lumpur bureau over a report last week about a wave of migrant worker arrests during the government’s efforts to combat the coronavirus epidemic.Information heroThe Qatari TV broadcaster’s report could contain “seditious elements,” the police inspector-general said yesterday. The claims being made by the police and other officials are so serious that an Al Jazeera journalist in Kuala Lumpur, speaking on condition of anonymity, told RSF that he feared the bureau could be closed down.Tashny Sukumaran, the Kuala Lumpur correspondent of the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, was questioned by the police in May for covering the same wave of arrests of migrant workers and is now facing a possible two-year jail sentence on a charge of “insult with intent to provoke a breach of the peace.” RSF included her in its list of 30 coronavirus “information heroes.” Although police dropped the initial case against Sukumaran, she was summoned again on July 1  for her contribution to a book on the 2018 general elections entitled “Rebirth: Reformasi, Resistance and Hope in New Malaysia”. Her hearing followed Home Ministry’s order of banning the book issued on the same day.
