Player bizarrely knocked out cold from powerful kick he couldn’t avoid

first_imgFriday Aug 16, 2019 Player bizarrely knocked out cold from powerful kick he couldn’t avoid This rather brutal clip comes from Chile and a match that ended rather badly for a young player who now has the special honour of being one of only a few players to have been knocked out by a rugby ball. ADVERTISEMENTWhile most players will have taken a shot to the face or nose on occasion, sometimes resulting in amusing falcons, this one was a bit more serious.Vicente Manzur Rabajille of Old Boys Club was standing just a few meters away when the Old Macks Club restarted from a well-struck 22-meter drop out that his face should not have got in the way of.WATCH: Friday Funnies – Referee knocked out by clearing kickThe direct blow knocked him out cold instantly. Thankfully, medics were on hand to attend to him and we’ve since been assured by the man himself that he is now okay, and has lived to tell the tale.

Judge Claudia House Morcom, ¡Presente!

first_imgJudge Claudia House Morcom, second from left, followed by Alicia Jrapko,Graciela Ramirez, Gloria Justo, Netfa Freeman on the right end, Nov. 2013.Photo: International Committee For The Freedom Of The Cuban 5Judge Claudia House Morcom died in her Detroit home on Aug. 17, at age 82. ­Dignified, glamorously beautiful and generous with her time, wisdom and counsel, she didn’t fear speaking truth to power whether the struggle for justice appeared on a global stage or closer to home.A memorial service remembered her rich, lifelong and wide-reaching actions holding the banner of justice and freedom.From September 1964 to October 1965 — Freedom Summer — House Morcom relocated to Jackson, Miss., to serve as the National Lawyers Guild’s Southern regional director for legal assistance in the South, organizing legal defense for the young activists beaten and jailed for registering Black voters.A young African-American attorney, she arrived in Jackson just when Civil Rights workers Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman went missing, all of them later to be found murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. A bullet through the windshield of her car did not deter her. Living alone on the outskirts of Jackson, she kept a sawed-off shotgun.She loved jazz, even hosting a radio program as “The Reverend, Doctor Judge.” It is no wonder her accomplishments are listed in “Who’s Who Among ­African Americans.”A founding board member of the National Alliance against Racist and Political Repression, she fought for ­political prisoners in the U.S. This commitment focused on freedom for the Cuban 5 after she traveled to Atlanta for their 11th Circuit Court of Appeals hearing in 2006. From then to the end of her life, Judge Claudia spoke, wrote and traveled to free these unjustly imprisoned men.In 2012 and 2013, Judge Claudia supported the ­International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 in the first two “5 Days for the Cuban 5” in Washington, D.C., where she joined international jurists and parliamentarians in lobbying Congress. She attended the 8th and 9th “Colloquiums for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 and Against Terrorism” in Cuba, where, in November 2013, she celebrated the return of René González after he completed his full sentence.She helped to organize “Doctors4Detroit,” which supports Detroit area students attending medical school in Cuba. Cuba offers generous scholarships to students from underserved U.S. communities whose dream to become doctors is blocked by lack of resources.From testifying at the United Nations Human Rights Committee in Geneva, picketing in front of the White House, speaking at tribunals in Toronto or before Detroit’s City Council to successfully urging a resolution for freedom for the Cuban 5 and an end to the blockade, Judge Claudia was there — as she was on other social justice issues in Nicaragua (1986), South Africa (2001), Palestine (2002), Vietnam (2009), Paris, Geneva and Havana many times.The Cuban Institute for Friendship with the People, The International Committee for the Freedom of the ­Cuban 5 and the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO)/Pastors for Peace all recognized her life and contributions to the struggle to free all the Cuban 5, three of whom remain in U.S. prisons: Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino and Gerardo ­Hernández.For more remembrances, go to and “like” the Facebook page: tinyurl.com/kjoxfbh.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Responding to police murder, protesters block entrance to NBA game

first_imgAnother young Black man’s life was tragically taken March 18 when three Sacramento, Calif., police officers emptied 20 shots into the body of 22-year-old Stephon Clark in his backyard. The police justified the murder by claiming that Clark had a gun in his hand. It turned out to be an iPhone. Clark was the father of two young children.Four days after the shooting, hundreds of angry protesters took to the streets, chanting, “Stephon Clark, say his name” and “Black lives matter,” as they marched onto Interstate 5 and then proceeded to the Golden 1 Center, home to the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings. The visiting Atlanta Hawks were the Kings’ opponents that night. The protesters, however, had a different agenda.Catching the police off guard, hundreds of protesters encircled the entire center, preventing thousands of spectators from entering the arena. This dramatic action delayed the game for 20 minutes; only 2,400 people saw the game in person. Surrounded by the players before the start of the game, the Kings’ principal owner, Vivek Ranadive, publicly offered condolences to Clark’s family.Before their March 25 game, the Kings players wore warm-up shirts that read: “Accountability. We are one. #StephonClark.” At a March 23 protest, Clark’s brother, Stevante, shouted “20 shots” in each police officer’s face.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
