Rugby Club Super 14 Plays of the Month – March & April 2010

first_imgMonday May 3, 2010 Rugby Club Super 14 Plays of the Month – March & April 2010 The Super 14 is nearing it’s final stages as the race for home semis intensifies. Theres been some incredible action over the past few months, so today we’ve got the Plays of the Month, from the Australian Rugby Club , for both March and April.In March the Reds began their climb up the ladder as they came to form despite losing injured lock James Horwill. Up stepped young Will Genia, who combined with playmaker Quade Cooper, has been at the forefront of their success so far.So as to be expected, being a top performing Aussie side, theyre featured prominently in both clips. Theyre currently 4th on the log, with the Waratahs and Brumbies not too far behind.The Waratahs themselves produced two of the biggest hits in March, with Will Caldwell and Rob Horn both making huge tackles, while Rene Ranger for the Blues smoked Christian Lealiifano. Benson Stanley is also there, doing what weve come to expect from him in the midfield.April provided a few big upsets, as well as some poor goal kicking and a smattering of bizarre incidents. The tries over the past two months were superb though, as the standard of the attacking play was outstanding with top quality tries being scored each weekend.Theres always the few naysayers who like to question the defence, but when the balls being shifted as fast and offloaded as accurately as it is, it makes it pretty damn difficult to defend against for 80 minutes.Great tries, good looking girls, and plenty of entertainment as usual in this double dose of the Super 14 Plays of the Month. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the razzle dazzle. :: Related Posts :: Rugby Club Super 14 Plays of the Month – February 2010 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

With this arrangement, the residents can enjoy the harvest of the vast space above the field. But the view of the field itself is not really beautiful because it was insensitively walled by bricks and these walls seemed to give closed feeling of the place.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro Yamamoto ArchitectsAs the solution, the “Tilt Beam” which spans 12 meters over the terrace, is introduced. The original purposes of this “Tilt Beam” are to avoid people falling off and to protect the family’s privacy.  An ordinal vertical low wall is enough for these purposes, but such kind of wall would make the open-air terrace dark and harm the spacious feeling. The “Tilt Beam” is lifted slightly above the floor to form a slit of the light and tilted outwards to make the surface of the beam brighter with sunshine.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro Yamamoto ArchitectsThe “Tilt Beam” is not only for the safety and the privacy, but also cuts off the view to the insensitive brick walls. The height of the “Tilt Beam” is carefully decided to off the lower half of the scene from inside, and eventually, the views from the terrace and the living room are consisted only with pure blue sky and green woods, and the open-air feeling of the house is emphasized.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessWinner Announced for Flinders Street StationArchitecture NewsGENETS 3 / Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & PartnersSelected Projects Share Photographs Save this picture!Courtesy of Takuro Yamamoto Architects+ 14 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTakuro Yamamoto ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoHousesJapanPublished on August 07, 2013Cite: “H-Orange / Takuro Yamamoto Architects” 07 Aug 2013.

Entrevista: Trabajador de Amazon lucha contra el multimillonario Bezos

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Chris Smalls es un ex trabajador de Amazon que fue despedido por organizar una huelga el 30 de marzo en las instalaciones de JFK8 Amazon en Staten Island, Nueva York. Los jefes se negaron a cerrar la instalación a pesar de los casos confirmados de COVID-19 entre los trabajadores. A raíz de la terminación injusta de Smalls, un memorando filtrado de los ejecutivos de Amazon reveló la intención de la compañía de mil millones de dólares de lanzar una campaña de difamación racista contra él. Smalls habló por teléfono con Ted Kelly de Workers World el 5 de abril.Chris Smalls with his children.Workers World: ¿Puede contarnos sobre los eventos previos a la huelga del 30 de marzo?Chris Smalls: Amazon no estaba preparado para esta pandemia y ese es el verdadero problema.A principios de mes comenzó como rumores: “Alguien está enfermo con eso”. “Alguien dio positivo”. Siempre fueron rumores, rumores, rumores. Pero en cada rumor hay un poco de verdad. No juego cuando se trata de salud, vida y muerte. Entonces lo escalé a Recursos Humanos y dije: “Escuché que enviaste algunos gerentes a Seattle hace un par de semanas. Escuché que uno de ellos regresó y se fue temprano porque estaban enfermos. Esa es una alerta para mí”.Seattle fue el epicentro en un momento dado. No estoy tratando de decir que trajeron el virus y fueron el Paciente Cero aquí, pero quieres adelantarte al juego.Mis sentidos se agudizan ahora. Estoy viendo a mis asociados enfermarse. Veo a mis compañeros de trabajo llamando con más frecuencia. Eso es aterrador para mí. Entonces comencé a tomarme días libres.Estaba tomando tantos días que no tenía nada que hacer más que mirar las noticias. Me convertí en estudiante [de la situación]. Estaba viendo esta pandemia en la televisión y viendo los números subiendo todos los días. Lo estaba viendo acercarse más y más a Nueva York. Pensé: “Trabajamos en un área poblada de alta densidad; Es posible que este virus esté en mi edificio. Tenemos 5.000 empleados que entran y salen de este edificio semanalmente de todo el área tri-estatal.Eso fue lo que ocurrió antes de que tuviéramos un caso confirmado, antes de que volviera a trabajar el martes [24 de marzo]. Tenía que tener dinero para pagar mi renta el 1 de abril. Ya había agotado todas mis opciones: tiempo no pagado, tiempo pagado, tiempo de vacaciones, lo usé todo. También saqué dinero de mi 401k. Tuve que volver a trabajar.Esa mañana me encontré con un colega. Ella se veía extremadamente enferma. Sus ojos estaban inyectados en sangre; ella estaba fatigada. Ella me dijo que estaba enferma y que fue a la prueba. Le dije: “Tienes que irte a casa. Ni siquiera te quedes aquí. Vete a casa.” Ella se fue a casa.Dos horas después tuvimos una reunión de gerentes donde supe que teníamos nuestro primer caso de alguien que había dado positivo, pero que no había estado en las instalaciones en algunas semanas. Las instalaciones de Queens [Amazon] cerraron, desinfectaron todo y les pagaron a todos solo una semana antes. Esperaba que hiciéramos exactamente lo mismo. Yo estaba tristemente equivocado.Todo seguía como siempre. Dijeron: “No se lo digas a los asociados. No queremos causar pánico”. Esa fue la última vez que trabajé para Amazon.[Derek Palmer, con quien viajó para trabajar, y yo] comencé a trabajar detrás de escena. Estaba enviando correos electrónicos al CDC, (Centro para el Control de las Enfermedades), al Departamento de Salud, al Departamento de Estado, a la oficina del gobernador. Lo que sea, lo hice. Me puse en contacto con todos los medios de comunicación. Los medios solo me estaban ignorando. Y pensé: “No puedo quedarme en casa de nuevo por cualquier número de días y dejar que la gente se enferme”.Dicen que violé varias pautas, ¡no, ellos lo hicieron! Su política es defectuosa. Permite que las personas vengan a trabajar enfermas porque no se le confirma el pago de cuarentena hasta que obtenga los documentos del médico. Mi compañero de trabajo dio positivo al día siguiente el miércoles [25 de marzo]. Gracias a Dios que vine el martes y la envié a casa. ¡Imagínese si no lo hiciera! Ella habría estado cerca de mis asociados por otras diez horas. Había estado allí toda la semana, ya expuesta a cientos de personas.Llegué al edificio todos los días, fuera de mis horas de trabajo, me senté en el edificio durante ocho horas al día. Llevamos a diez personas a la oficina de recursos humanos todos los días para plantear sus preocupaciones.Tan pronto como mi compañero de trabajo me envió un mensaje de texto y dijo que dio positivo, corrí a la oficina y les dije “He estado expuesto y todos mis empleados también lo han estado. Tienes un departamento enorme que ha sido expuesto. Necesitas cerrar el edificio. Inmediatamente.”Tenían un montón de excusas. Dijeron que hablarían con los gerentes regionales. Dijeron que tenían que revisar el video para ver con quién se puso en contacto. Pensé: “Vaya, ¿realmente vas a revisar la cinta ahora mismo cuando te digo que he estado expuesto?” Fui a casa y seguí en eso. Estaba enviando más correos electrónicos, diciéndole a todos los que podía: el departamento de policía local, OSHA. Lo hice todo.Supe que la gente protestó en un edificio de Kentucky y el gobierno los cerró hasta el 1 de abril, con sueldo. Regresé el jueves [26 de marzo]. La gerencia me dijo que eso no sucedió, eso no es cierto. Los empleados en realidad no protestaron; el gobierno lo cerró. Le dije: “¡Este es tu edificio! Eres el líder del sitio. Ciérralo “. Traje a 10 asociados más. Nada entendían. Otro día perdido.Para el viernes [27 de marzo] había terminado de ser amable. Hice que la gente esperara en la cafetería mientras entraba solo a la oficina, y tuve una discusión con el líder del sitio y el jefe de Recursos Humanos. Imprimieron las pautas de los CDC. Me acusaron de insubordinación. Simplemente estaban evitando cuál era el verdadero problema.Luego fui a mis comunicaciones internas, Amazon Chime, donde enviamos mensajes de texto a los gerentes de operaciones. Veo que uno de los gerentes de operaciones les dice a los supervisores que mientan a los asociados y ofrezcan VTO [tiempo libre voluntario]. Le dije: “Espera un minuto, somos un negocio esencial; estamos en horas extras obligatorias.¿Vas a enviar gente voluntariamente a casa? ¿Por qué?” Él dijo: “Dígan una obstrucción y que no tenemos camiones”. Intentaban reducir la fuerza laboral en caso de que aparecieran los CDC, por lo que estarían cumpliendo con las sugerencias del CDC.WW: ¿Entonces salieron con su propia narrativa para proteger su responsabilidad?CS: Exactamente. Y ya se estaban preparando para algún tipo de protesta. Entonces me fui.Regresé el sábado [28 de marzo] a las 7 de la mañana y fui a la cafetería. Lo mismo que había estado haciendo todos los días. Fue entonces cuando me pusieron en cuarentena. ¡Ahora ni siquiera pusieron en cuarentena a la persona con la que conduzco para trabajar todos los días! Estuve en sus oficinas toda la semana, ¡no se pusieron en cuarentena! Ni los otros empleados con los que había estado tratando durante horas. Ninguno de ellos. Solo yo.WW: Eso es algo tan obvio.CS: Descarado. Entonces Derek y yo nos fuimos a casa. Teníamos que hacer algo drástico. Seguí llamando a los medios y el New York Post finalmente contestó el teléfono. Les dije que íbamos a salir a protestar el lunes [30 de marzo]. Tenía 24 horas para armar eso. El Post lo publicó, y ahora todos los medios de comunicación que me habían estado ignorando están llamando a mi teléfono. Puse al mundo en aviso para venir a JFK8 el lunes.Todo, desde la hora hasta el clima, fue planeado. Vi que la temperatura iba a ser de 65 grados; iba a estar agradable afuera. Le dije: “Hagámoslo a la hora del almuerzo”. Iba a darle una huelga al mundo y eso es exactamente lo que hice.WW: Eso es genial.Pero no soy “inteligente” o “elocuente”. [Risas]Los trabajadores de Amazon salieron de las instalaciones de JFK8 en Queens, Nueva York, el 30 de marzo.WW: Hablemos de ese memorando filtrado de los ejecutivos de Amazon, donde dijeron que no eras “inteligente” o “elocuente”. ¿Crees que el racismo jugó un papel en que te atacaran?CS: Definitivamente me encontré con perfiles raciales trabajando para Amazon. Esta fue en realidad la segunda vez que me dieron de baja. Soy alguien que ha aguantado muchas tonterías en los últimos cinco años. Especialmente siendo un supervisor africano-americano.Cuando estaba en Amazon en Connecticut, estaban tomando medidas enérgicas contra los gerentes que robaban el tiempo de la compañía. Ni siquiera era asalariado en esos momento, estaba por hora, así que tenía que “rastrear” cada uno de mis movimientos. Los gerentes no tienen que hacer eso.[Para la primera terminación] llegué tarde. El trabajo comenzó a las 7:15 a.m. y llegué allí dos minutos tarde. Literalmente dos minutos tarde. 7:17 a.m. Entré. Y [la gerencia] me dio de baja. Por dos minutos [Su excusa era] el grupo de gerentes que robaban dos o tres horas al día. Pero por dos minutos me terminaron.Definitivamente hay algo de racismo entre la empresa. Fui atacado por esta compañía mucho antes de esta situación.WW: En la poderosa carta abierta que escribiste, dijiste: “Amazon cree que somos imprescindibles”. ¿Podrías explicar a qué te referías con eso?CS: Me despidieron durante una pandemia. Les importan un bledo mi vida, mis tres hijos que tengo que alimentar. No puedo obtener el desempleo en este momento porque [el proceso de solicitud es] muy loco, y [Amazon] probablemente lo disputará de todos modos. Tengo un amigo que ha estado durmiendo en su automóvil durante cinco días porque está enfermo, no puede hacerse una maldita prueba y no quiere traer [el coronavirus] a la casa porque tiene tres hijos pequeños y una esposa.Estos multimillonarios deberían avergonzarse de sí mismos. No están haciendo nada para ayudar a las personas. Tienes tres opciones: puedes venir a trabajar y contraer el virus. O quedarse en casa y no le paguen. O contraer el virus y ponerse en cuarentena con paga. Esas son sus opciones: obtener el virus y cobrar. Obtener el virus y poner en cuarentena. O quedarse en casa y quedar en la ruina, y sin hogar, posiblemente.Aumento de salarios $2? Eso es una bofetada. Realmente no entendía cuál era su mentalidad, pero lo entiendo ahora. Es pura maldad y pura codicia. Realmente no les importan las personas. Prefieren ver morir a toda su fuerza laboral.Dios no permita que 800.000 empleados de Amazon se conviertan en portadores de este virus. ¿Si cada uno de ellos lo extiende a dos o tres personas? Todos están ahora en seis grados de separación. Hay un edificio de Amazon en cada ciudad importante en cada estado. Hay 5.000 de nosotros en un edificio. Somos el epicentro en la ciudad de Nueva York.Venimos de los cinco distritos, tomamos el metro y el autobús todos los días. ¡Y están contratando a las personas que no están diagnosticadas!¿Quieres aplanar la curva? Entonces cierra. Ahí está tu solución. ¿Necesitas hospitales? Mi edificio de Amazon en si, cubre 14 campos de fútbol de la NFL.WW: Y sin embargo, están construyendo hospitales de campaña en Central Park.CS: Exactamente. Tienes a estos médicos y enfermeras trabajando en carpas. Estos multimillonarios deben avergonzarse de sí mismos. Apague su red durante tres meses. Paga a tus empleados. Envía tu dinero al campo médico. ¿Qué tan difícil es eso?WW: No están dispuestos a sacrificar sus ganancias.CS: Prefieren ver morir a las personas, ver cómo se acumula su dinero y construir una nave espacial.WW: Terminaste tu carta con las palabras: “Estamos comenzando una revolución y la gente de todo el país nos apoya”. ¿Qué significa esta revolución para ti y cómo puede la gente apoyarla?¿Quieres ayudarnos a practicar el distanciamiento social real? Deja de hacer clic en “One Click Buy”. Simple. ¿Por qué no cerrar esta red de Amazon y dejar que nuestra gente se ofrezca voluntariamente para ayudar a las tiendas de comestibles con paga? ?Por qué no? ¡Podemos hacerlo!WW: ¿Hay una campaña para restaurar su trabajo? ¿Volverías si te ofrecieran un trabajo?CS: Por supuesto que no. Les dije el mismo día que me despidieron: Quedate con tu mierda. Nunca quiero trabajar para un hombre que no se preocupa por las personas. Nunca.last_img read more

Farm Bureau Urges New York Mayor to Rein in Carriage Ban

first_img“New York City’s proposed ban isn’t coming from people who work with horses day-to-day,” Stallman said. “Their claims aren’t based on science or recommendations from veterinarians. In fact, they ignore the expertise of ranchers, livestock owners, and animal care professionals who work with animals every day and have been caring for these horses for centuries.” City horses, like their farm and ranch peers, generally live long, healthy lives. They receive regular examinations and treatment from veterinarians to maintain good health: The horses also get ample rest, including five weeks of vacation to the countryside each year. The carriage industry operates under strict safety guidelines and the watchful eye of both the city’s Department of Health and the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Horse owners know their livelihoods depend on keeping their animals safe and healthy: They wouldn’t jeopardize that. Farm Bureau Urges New York Mayor to Rein in Carriage Ban By Gary Truitt – Mar 25, 2015 Facebook Twitter Writing that horse caretakers take pride in protecting the health and safety of their animals and horse-drawn carriages are iconic guides to many American cities, the American Farm Bureau Federation has called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to withdraw his proposed ban on historic horse-drawn carriages in New York City. “This valued tradition allows people to connect with the horses and tour the city in a historic and unique way,” AFBF President Bob Stallman said. “New York City’s carriage horses have been an important asset to citizens and visitors throughout the years. Despite activist rhetoric that these horses are tortured and mistreated, they are in fact well cared for and valued.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Urges New York Mayor to Rein in Carriage Ban Previous articleWays to Best Establish Spring ForageNext articlePurdue Students Take Home Big Money for Soy Innovations Gary Truitt SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

BOAH and Producers get High Praise for Flu Response

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News BOAH and Producers get High Praise for Flu Response By Andy Eubank – Mar 7, 2016 Gov Pence on HPAIIndiana’s Board of Animal Health and poultry producers in southwest Indiana are being lauded for their swift action this year during the newest highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak that was contained within Dubois County. Praise has come in from USDA and also Indiana Governor Mike Pence. He spoke with HAT last week.“I’m just very proud of the response in being able to resolve the outbreak of high path avian influenza in what may well be record time. It’s a testament to a lot of good planning but also a lot of great collaboration. So I’m extremely pleased that we were able to resolve the issue quickly and that we were basically able to lift the quarantine level. My hat’s off to Dr. Bret Marsh, the Board of Animal Health, all the local officials and all our great poultry producers who worked in concert with state and federal officials.”Pence said the multi state outbreak in 2015 helped Indiana learn, plan and drill for the next occurrence. The preparation paid off.“This outbreak in the Hoosier state and the immediacy of our response was greatly facilitated because our team here had done the work and made the plans for this outbreak. Without the strong response by state and local officials, without the strong response of our producers around the entire Dubois County region, this could have been a much more significant event with much greater loss to this vital poultry industry in Indiana. So I think we did learn lessons from last year’s outbreak in other states.”Pence was presented a crystal egg by the Indiana poultry industry commemorating the state’s quick, effective response. The governor visited BOAH and presented Dr. Marsh and his team that same egg.“They really deserved the credit and every Hoosier, particularly in agriculture should be proud of the Indiana team’s response.”BOAH lifted the control area 2 weeks ago after all farms in the 6.2-mile radius tested negative throughout the 38-day period, based on guidelines by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Avian influenza poses no food safety threat with regard to poultry and eggs.

Eutelsat already operates the EGNOS GEO-3 payload on its EUTELSAT 5 West B satellite which entered into service in February 2020. Built by Airbus Defence and Space, EUTELSAT HOTBIRD 13G satellite, which will host the EGNOS GEO-4 payload, is scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2022. Commenting on the agreement, Rodolphe Belmer, Chief Executive Officer of Eutelsat said: “We are delighted to have been entrusted once again by the GSA for this critical mission. It showcases the unparalleled coverage of our fleet as well as our technological expertise and reliability. Space technology continues to change the way we live, and we are delighted to support the GSA to ensure that European citizens get the most out of satellite navigation programs. We are looking forward to collaborating on other projects of this nature with GSA.” Rodrigo da Costa, GSA Executive Director added: “ The GSA has awarded Eutelsat the EGNOS GEO-4 contract to manage this important payload that enhances the GSA’s core mission to deliver reliable and secure space-based services. Along with delivering economic benefits to innovative service providers and related businesses, satellite navigation is changing how we manage the mobility, safety and security of people and goods for Europe and beyond in fundamental ways.” About Eutelsat Communications Founded in 1977, Eutelsat Communications is one of the world’s leading satellite operators.

‘There Is Hoarding On Both Medicines And Oxygen, You Are Not Doing Anything’: Delhi High Court Pulls Up Delhi Government

first_imgNews Updates’There Is Hoarding On Both Medicines And Oxygen, You Are Not Doing Anything’: Delhi High Court Pulls Up Delhi Government Srishti Ojha27 April 2021 4:37 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court on Tuesday pulled up the Government of NCT of Delhi on the issue of black marketing and hoarding of covid medicines and oxygen cylinders. A division bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli went ahead to note that there were incidents of black marketing with respect to the oxygen cylinders which is “one of the biggest challenges faced by individuals.””There is hoarding going on of both medicines and oxygen. You are not doing anything.” Remarked the Bench at the outset. Advertisement In view of this, assurance was given by Rahul Mehra, counsel appearing for GNCTD that details of what has been done and the raids conducted so far in order to deal with the issue of black marketing and hoarding will be given to the Court. At this point, Senior Advocate Malvika Trivedi suggested to the Court that there should be a mechanism in place in order to deal with the issue and that the police may also be impleaded in the same. Advertisement On the submissions of Advocate Maninder Singh that it is irrational that Remdesivir is only given to the admitted patients, Trivedi also went ahead to suggest that there can be a centralised portal created containing details of the availability of critical covid Drugs. At the outset, the Bench told Mehra “Your order saying Remdesivir should be given only to those admitted is completely unreasonable. If you have availability in hospitals that would be one thing. But you don’t. Then how can you say if you don’t have a hospital bed, you can’t get Remdesivir.” Advertisement Advertisement Furthermore, pulling up the Delhi Government for not doing anything on the aspect of black marketing and hoarding on both medicines and oxygen, the Bench directed that a day to day account as regards to the stock of Remdesivir and other drugs with all pharmacies be given to keep a check on the issue of hoarding. During the course of hearing today, the Bench also observed that the Delhi Government was passing orders and issuing directions as if they are living in a completely different world, are out of sync and don’t know the ground reality. The said observation came after the Bench was informed about the order issued by GNCTD on 25th April asking hospitals to attend to the patients who come in their emergency.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Read Also: [Supply Of Oxygen]”Seems You Are Passing Orders As If Living In A Completely Different World”: Delhi High Court Tells Delhi Govt.Edited by Nupur ThapliyalTagsdelhi government black marketing hoarding of covid drugs covid medicines second covid wave covid 19 gnctd Justice Vipin Sanghi #Justice Rekha Palli Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Oriel split over trans event

first_imgOriel College has voted against a motion to donate £100 towards bringing DarkMatter, a trans South Asian performance art duo, to Oxford as part of their tour. The motion was one of three proposed at an open meeting last Sunday to request the release of more than £75 from the JCR budget, and as such had to be voted on by an online poll. The motion was defeated with 86 votes against, and 16 votes for. The motion’s defeat by such a wide margin caused disappointment and anger amongst some Oriel students. Speaking about why he believes the motion was defeated, the proposer of the motion, who wished to remain anonymous, told Cherwell, “The reasons people have given are that they did not have enough information about where exactly the money was going, that there were three simultaneous requests for money from the JCR and people started worrying about the budget (an unfounded worry, since it is my understanding that we are currently well under budget for the year), and that people did not feel it was relevant to them. “My suspicion is that it was largely the latter, which may seem an innocuous enough reason at first glance, but the fact is that the minorities to whom this would be relevant (queer/trans people and people of colour) are those whose voices are disproportionately overlooked at Oxford and in the wider world. “It would seem petty, for example, if I were to refuse money to an event primarily for the benefit of Chemists simply because it’s not relevant to me as an Modern Languages student, but it’s so much worse than mere pettiness when oppressed minorities are denied the funding to access things that are central to their liberation; regardless of intention, it can end up feeling like an attack on our right to be here. “It is interesting to me that Oriel is the only college so far to have turned down the motion, and especially by such a high margin. This is the main reason why I felt let down by the JCR’s decision, because – whether or not this actually is the case – it implies that there is something different about how Oriel viewed the matter, since they were given word-for-word the same motion as the other colleges.”Kit Owens, Oriel’s JCR President, explained to Cherwell, “I will not presume to know the reasons why JCR members who took part in the poll voted the way they did but being present in the meeting, there was definite concern from some members over the vagueness of the motion. I would also like to take this opportunity to reaffirm Oriel JCR’s commitment to LGBTQ liberation. We successfully campaigned to fly the Pride flag from the college flagpole and have given at least £119 to LGBTQ causes in the past academic year, supporting Oxford Pride and the work of our LGBTQ Rep.” WomCam Officer Aliya Yule told Cherwell, “It’s very disappointing that Oriel has voted not to support DarkMatter coming to Oxford. It’s rare that we get an opportunity to give a platform at our University to voices that are constantly side-lined in our curriculum, and in society.”last_img read more
