Will Greenwood about to be stretchered off during the 1997 Lion’s tour of South AfricaPERHAPS, IN 1997, rugby players thought documentaries like this were simply part and parcel of professionalism. What is certain is that all players love watching this classic DVD and that such access – and thus such compelling footage – won’t be seen again, writes Rugby World deputy editor Alan Pearey.From the moment the squad meet up for team-bonding exercises at Weybridge to the close of a momentous tour of South Africa six weeks later, the cameras roll (sometimes, hilariously, in the hands of tour jesters like John Bentley and Rob Wainwright). It’s as if the viewer is part of the squad: there are selection meetings and changing-room psych-ups and stirring speeches from coaches McGeechan and Telfer; doc Robson discussing scans or diarrhoea, or getting worked up on the bench as opponents try to harm one of his Lions; the scrum beastings on the training field; the players unwinding in bars or hotels, one scene lingering as all the players (well, maybe not Tom Smith) sing Oasis; a players’ court, belly-kissing judge Keith Wood in the chair. Most memorably, the pain of injury, Rob Howley and Doddie Weir being told their tour is over, Will Greenwood being carried unconscious while his mum screams. And, too, the nervous chatter of Geech and Telfer, miked up in the stand, as the glorious action unfolds.It’s a sports documentary without equal, with strong language (it’s a 15 certificate) and yet, remarkably, only occasionally do you feel the players are self-conscious because of the all-seeing lens.All in all, three hours of bliss, with a second disc containing extended footage from the final week – there’s even a wallchart thrown in. The DVD is widely available on the high street.RW RATING 5/5 Do you want to buy the issue of Rugby World in which this article appeared?

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Sudan & South Sudan [Episcopal News Service] A little more than six months after the Republic of South Sudan became an independent nation, President Salva Kiir Mayardit established a Committee for Community Peace, Reconciliation and Tolerance in Jonglei state. Today, with the help of Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan, and others from the Episcopal Church and the committee, conditions on the ground have improved, though still remain tense.Jonglei (pronounced “Jonga-lay”), one of the 10 states of the new nation of South Sudan, is a vast area of mainly African savannah, open grasslands and low trees, home primarily to pastoralist tribes which historically have lived off herds of cattle and goats which they moved regularly in search of grazing. Cattle are the basis for wealth for pastoralists; there are no banks and very little currency in places like Jonglei.Over the past few years Jonglei has experienced an escalating cycle of violence stemming largely from cattle raiding which resulted in attacks and counter-attacks producing many casualties. A family’s wealth is tied-up in heads of cattle. The more you have the wealthier you are and the only time cattle are consumed is for ritual sacrifice.Raiding partly stems from religious beliefs. In the traditional creation theory of most of these tribes living in Jonglei, after God created the heavens and the earth He gave each tribe all the cattle and so it is their right to reclaim them. Another reason for raiding is the inflation of bride prices: To marry, a man must pay cattle to a woman’s family. It used to be around 30-head of cattle, but has become inflated to 100 cattle and upwards. This puts a lot of pressure on clans to gather cattle.The Episcopal Church of Sudan is one of the largest social services providers in South Sudan. It operates nearly 400 schools, a hospital in Lui, and numerous clinics around the country. Through the Mothers’ Union, the church offers literacy training and micro-finance. And it also works with international partners to provide bore-wells for communities to offer clean water. The church is highly respected and was front and center when South Sudan achieved its independence from the north on July 9, 2011.In late February 2012, the appointment of the archbishop as chairman of the Committee for Community Peace, Reconciliation and Tolerance was a reflection of his status within Sudan as a recognized champion of peace. As the archbishop stated, when work began, the goals of the committee would be to teach people to be good neighbors and to learn the principles of peaceful coexistence. These would not be easy lessons for people who have known nothing but deprivation and violence for so long, especially during the 50 years of civil war with Sudan.The committee followed a three-step path towards the establishment of peace. First would be fact-finding visits by the committee to the affected communities. This would be followed by individual intra-community dialogues led by sub-committees during which community members would be invited to share their grievances and suggestions for how peace could be achieved. The final step was an All Jonglei Communities Conference at which delegates from the individual dialogues would come together to determine together the best way forward.Four intra-community dialogues were organized in late April to allow people to express their fears and frustrations in an open setting. The expression of grievances was viewed as highly cathartic and helpful for the communities. The events also allowed communities to identify members they could trust to represent them at the All Jonglei Conference.Through the smaller dialogues several key issues were identified including underdevelopment, high unemployment, lack of resources such as schools and roads and clean water, trauma, theft of livestock, food insecurity, and the abduction and trafficking of women and children.The five-day All Jonglei Conference was held in May in Bor, the capital of Jonglei. The conference attracted 84 delegates representing all the communities and all levels of government. In his introductory remarks the archbishop stated the four reasons for the conference:Offer the six tribes of Jonglei the chance to come and reason togetherFind how to rebuild the social trust we have lost over the yearsTo seek the healing of our social divisions, andThe restoration of our broken relationships through the involvement and active participation of our communities.The meetings were long and contentious, with representatives airing their grievances directly to one another in an open forum. But engaging in open and honest dialogue without recriminations or mocking allowed the delegates to develop trust in one another. As the archbishop stated, “What people spoke from the heart is important. It is vital to release all the pain for meaningful dialogue to take place, but what is important is that people are showing respect for one another.” And also that, “We cannot have fellowship without forgiveness. We need to have mercy on one another.”During the conference the leaders of the communities made a real breakthrough and agreed to work together for peace. And on the last day, in the presence of the president, the leaders of the six main communities of Jonglei, the Jieh, Kachipo, Anyuak, Murle, Nuer and Dinka tribes, signed a peace agreement.As some of those participating observed, there have been past conferences and resolutions passed similar to the ones adopted this time, but the difference is that this time the committee members committed themselves to implementing the agreement and the Government of South Sudan actually has contributed resources to assist the process. For instance, following the conference the government paid for the committee members, including leaders of the six tribes, to travel throughout the 11 counties of Jonglei to disseminate the message of peace. The leaders reaffirmed the commitments they agreed to before all the communities of Jonglei.(Thanks to a grant from the American Friends of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, the church had two pastors who accompanied the leaders of the six tribes as they moved about Jonglei.)In the immediate aftermath of the peace treaty, cattle-raiding had declined some 90 percent. People were reporting that they felt more secure; that some women and children who had been abducted were returned to their families; that the national armed forces, who had been sent to disarm the population and help serve as buffers between communities, had also tracked down and returned large numbers of cattle; and that the tribal chiefs who had felt marginalized were now feeling empowered to use their position for peace.— Larry Duffee is an Episcopal Church volunteer for mission serving the Episcopal Church of Sudan.

Jan. 25 — The Communist Party of Vietnam is holding its 13th National Party Congress this week — a culmination of hundreds of meetings and discussions that have taken place throughout the country and at all levels of the party. It will evaluate the socioeconomic development strategies of the previous congress in 2016 and will set concrete targets and tasks for the future. The overall goal is to move Vietnam to the level of a “socialist-oriented developed country” by the middle of this century.Development plans in Vietnam include managing the natural resources and the environment while adapting the country to climate change. Over the last five years, Vietnam’s annual average GDP growth was 6%, and the poverty rate in the country was reduced to less than 3%. These achievements have been reached despite the need to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, which the Vietnamese people have succeeded in doing with remarkable success. To date, in a population of almost 98 million people, there have been 35 deaths. (Worldometer, Jan. 25)Workers World sent the following solidarity message to the congress:January 14, 2021To the Communist Party of Vietnam on the occasion of your 13th National Congress:We are so glad to send our congratulations and highest regards to the Communist Party of Vietnam as you evaluate your past experiences and plan the future.The review of the resolutions set at the 12th National Congress that have been guiding your policies these last five years will undoubtedly be seen against the inspiring backdrop of your stunning success in combating the ravages of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. That alone is accomplishment enough, but there were others as well, especially before the pandemic became the primary problem confronting every country of the world.Much of the world remains ensnared in a seemingly intractable contest with SARS-CoV-2. Your success in combating this problem has shown the world that a socialist system deeply rooted in the people, such as that of Vietnam, is capable of vanquishing this 21st century enemy, just as it was able to vanquish the military and political enemies of the 20th century.We are in solidarity with the 13th Congress as you study and evaluate your achievements and what remains to be done, as well as set goals to guide your future path. With the involvement of such a large part of the population, this is a very important period. We look forward to learning of your deliberations and future plans.We convey our warmest solidarity and appreciation for your decades of struggle that have inspired generations of progressive people in the U.S.Larry Holmes, First Secretary of Workers World PartyDeirdre Griswold, Editor of Workers World newspaperFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
