first_imgTouch Football Australia (TFA) is pleased to be joining the campaign to fight racism through the ‘It Stops With Me’ National Anti-Racism Strategy launched by the Australian Human Rights Commission in 2012. TFA joins many sporting organisations supporting the campaign, committing to play a visible role by taking a public stance against racism in the community.The purpose of the campaign is to ensure more Australian’s recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community; give more Australians, at an individual and organisation level, the tools and resources to take practical action against racism; and empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism where it may happen. Over the next three years, the National Anti-Racism Strategy will focus on five key priority areas: schools and higher education, the media, government service provision, workplaces and the internet.This Strategy calls on all members of the Australian community to work towards eradicating the barriers to equality that result from racism. Ultimately, racism stops because of the actions we take individually and collectively. We all have a role to play in taking action against racism wherever we see it and supporting initiatives to stop it from happening.For more information about the ‘Racism – It Stops With Me’ campaign or to sign up as supporter, please visit the following website – http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.auRelated Links‘It Stops With Me’ Campaignlast_img read more

a day ago​Arsenal hero Petit: Nothing has changed since Wenger left

first_img​Arsenal hero Petit: Nothing has changed since Wenger leftby Freddie Taylora day agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal legend Emmanuel Petit does not see any differences between the end of Arsene Wenger’s time at the club and their performances now.Unai Emery has received time and backing at the club, as he is now into his second season as manager.But their performances and results are no better than what Wenger was achieving, and Emery arguably has a more balanced squad at his disposal.Petit told reporters: “I can understand why many Arsenal supporters are losing patience with Unai Emery.”As a manager he has a bad record away from home – not just with Arsenal, but also while he was in Spain.”Arsenal showed no character and it p***es me off because it has been the case so many times away from home.”The starting XI he picked against Sheffield United was strange.”It’s difficult after an international break when you have to play teams that don’t have as many players involved in the international fixtures.”But you know what to expect when you go to Bramall Lane – you know the qualities of the Sheffield United team.”They fight, especially in front of their home crowd, and they get balls into the box and put pressure on at set pieces.”That’s what they did against Liverpool and Chelsea.”But more importantly they didn’t show any technical quality on the pitch.”They gave away so many simple balls and had no inspiration, imagination or creativity.”They looked so heavy. This isn’t Arsenal – you need to take the ball and show what you’ve got.”But I haven’t seen that in years. Nothing has changed since Arsène Wenger left.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Servite four-star wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown committed to Notre Dame this afternoon, and he showed off being trilingual in the process of doing it. St. Brown’s mother is from Germany, and he spent time attending school in France. He began his announcement and made his commitment in English, but dropped some German and French in between.Here’s St. Brown thanking his mother in German: So St. Brown speaks three languages, his father is a former Mr. World and Mr. Universe bodybuilder and his name is derived from the word equanimity, meaning “mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.” Oh, and he has younger brothers named Osiris and Amon-Ra. He just may be the Most Interesting Recruit In The World.last_img read more

Decisive Action From Russia Iran and Turkey Required to Avoid Needless Deaths

first_imgThe Elders strongly urge the three guarantors of the “Astana Process” – Iran, Russia and Turkey – to overcome their recent differences and work hand-in-hand to prevent heavy civilian casualties in Syria’s Idlib region. A large-scale offensive there appears imminent.Gro Harlem Brundtland, Acting Chair of The Elders and former Prime Minister of Norway, said:“Russia, Iran and Turkey have taken it upon themselves to work together to restore peace and security to Syria. As a result, they have a heavy responsibility to act decisively at this time to prevent further deaths and injuries to civilians in Idlib. The situation could not be more urgent.”Almost half Idlib’s estimated population of 2.9 million are people who have been displaced from other parts of the country. Among them, about a million children are most at risk. Indiscriminate aerial bombardments over the past days are already reported to have caused many casualties.Lakhdar Brahimi, Elder and the former UN and Arab League Special Envoy for Syria, added:“The people of Syria have suffered too much and for far too long. The Syrian Government and its supporters, Turkey and the armed groups can and must do all that is necessary to ensure that the vast civilian population in Idlib province receives the effective protection which international humanitarian law gives them.”The Elders have long urged the US and Russian Governments to work together, patiently and persistently, first to end the fighting and then to focus on a meaningful political process.
The UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura has called for a Syrian constitutional committee to meet in Geneva in the coming days.Martti Ahtisaari, Elder, Nobel Laureate and former President of Finland who has helped end several intractable conflicts, commented:“Any lasting solution to this war must of course be fully Syrian-owned. But, to get to that point, the external actors first need to work together. The reference point must remain UN Security Council Resolution 2254 of December 2015. It was approved unanimously and remains the agreed political route for Syria.”last_img read more

Mikmaw chiefs optimistic proposed changes to onreserve welfare will be dropped

first_imgTrina RoacheAPTN National NewsEskasoni Chief Leroy Denny says while the news is unofficial he is expecting an announcement from the Liberals at the Assembly of First Nations meetings this week in Ottawa that the federal government will drop proposed changes to welfare on-reserve.Denny said he can’t comment other than what he put on Facebook. On Friday he posted, “Tonight we got news from a government source that the social changes will be delayed indefinitely. We are waiting for more details and an official announcement.”Denny said he won’t celebrate until the news “comes from the minister.”Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett will meet with the Mi’kmaw chiefs on Thursday at the AFN meetings in Gatineau, QC. Though word may come sooner in the week. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to address the AFN on Tuesday.The Mi’kmaq fought a four-year legal battle against the former Conservative government over its decision to mirror provincial welfare policies on reserve.The Liberals’ change of heart comes after news of a policy document that supported the Mi’kmaw position was found recently in the National Archives.Mi’kmag Lawyer Naiomi Metallic said the 1964 document outlines “that it’s not going to be possible to adopt all aspects of provincial policy and it goes on to say we need to adapt it to our circumstances. And that’s really key. It proves we were right. We were right along.”Though the chiefs won at the lower level court, they lost at the Federal Court of Appeal in January of 2015. It agreed Ottawa was only following policy. In October, the Supreme Court of Canada said it wouldn’t hear the case.The Mi’kmaq were out of legal options and hoped to lobby the new Liberal government.Millbrook Chief Bob Gloade also posted on Facebook, “Once the official announcement comes from the Minister things will look promising. Lots of hard work done by our legal team and lobbying government officials over the last several weeks is beginning to pay off as liberal government is showing a willingness to work together.”The Mi’kmaq have argued all along that the welfare changes on reserve would cause hardship because bands would get 30 per cent less funding for social assistance.But welfare works differently on-reserve, they argued. Block funding is used to pay for programs and actuals, like social housing, rent and utilities. Court documents showed that government was aware there would be negative impacts on housing and a risk that more kids would end up taken into care.Though the policy document has given the chiefs new hope, Denny was frustrated that Ottawa didn’t include it in the court documents submitted in the first place.“We can’t understand why it wasn’t produced,” said Denny when the chiefs first found out about the document. “It’s very discouraging because we put a lot of time and money into fighting this in court. We just want to be treated fairly. We were right all this time.”As word spreads on social media, there’s a sense of relief among the Mi’kmaq.Denny looks forward to meeting with Bennett. He’s optimistic and said, “The new government seems open minded.”No one from Indigenous Affairs could be reached for comment.troache@aptn.calast_img read more
