Summer tours: Scotland’s slide before South Africa

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Slipping Scot: No.8 Johnnie Beattie is upended by Jeremy Su’a of Samoa during the Scots 27-17 loss in South AfricaBy Alan DymockA BEATLES B-side, Helter Skelter was said to be the song that started it all for heavy metal.“When I get to the bottom, I go back to the top of the slide,” the Scouse four-piece screeched. Rock ‘n’ roll indeed. Something, in fact, the Scotland national team can identify with after their recent loss to Samoa during their summer tour of South Africa.Bloody minded Boks: South Africa’s danger men lie in waitThe have slid down the IRB world rankings off the back of a 27-17 loss in Durban at the weekend, landing with hideous bump at 11th and blowing a hole through their forward cover in the process.The climb back up is a rough one, with the South Africans waiting. No Geoff Cross, no Pat MacArthur, no Kelly Brown. Ryan Grant is off on the adventure of a lifetime in Australia. Forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys has his work cut out just forcing to smile alongside his superior, Scott Johnson, while he goes about the job of strapping his forwards together for an ugly test, tantamount to cleaning up after a rave in a china shop. BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 09: Ryan Grant, the Scotland prop, who has just been called up into the Lions touring squad as a replacement poses during the British and Irish Lions media session held at the Tattersalls Club on June 9, 2013 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Scotland have replaced MacArthur with Glasgow Warriors’ Fraser Brown, a man who has played most of his recent rugby with club side Heriot’s. Glasgow’s Jon Welsh had already gone out as cover for Ryan Grant as he jetted off to become a British and Irish Lion. Announcements are forthcoming as the management seek replacements for Cross, who has an injured shoulder, and Kelly Brown. They will not struggle for willing participants, particularly in Scotland where both Glasgow and Edinburgh are already into day two of their gruelling pre-season regimen. Who wouldn’t want to skip down-and-ups in the dirt and double daily weight sessions to trot around in the sun?A noticeable forward loss: Ryan GrantThe problem is that this quadrangular tournament in South Africa has already proven itself to be nowhere near a holiday, but more of a hobbler as Scot after Scot gets cut off at the knees.Samoa played well and splintered the Scottish defence, even if their set-piece wilted when faced with Scots’ drives. South Africa, on the other hand, will be more than capable at the set-piece and likely to lick some grinning chops as they wave the Scots towards the dank horribleness of the ruck. The likes of Al Strokosch, Al Kellock and Sean Lamont may be looking forward to this aspect of confrontation, but the other must be urged not to get drawn into this game.Scotland love to be plucky underdogs, but their resources are already spread supermodel-thin. They need to halt the slide down the rankings and they need to prove a lot to themselves. None of this is done by thumping into the headbashing and heavy work of the rocking Boks.last_img read more

Skinstad: Boks have reasons for optimism

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Even though the Springboks bowed out in heroic, agonising circumstances to the All Blacks in the World Cup semi-final last weekend, their 2007 World Cup winning backrow, Bobby Skinstad, says the side did more than enough not to be defined by the never-to-be-forgotten loss to Japan on the first weekend.For Skinstad, now a TV pundit for SuperSport in Cape Town, the competition has marked something of a changing of the guard within Springbok ranks. “The experimental nature of South African rugby is sometimes suppressed a little, but during the tournament I’d say the upside is we’ve uncovered more quality personnel. Heyneke (Meyer) has had to experiment because of injuries to the likes of Jean de Villiers and Victor Matfield.”What has pleased the 42-cap former Bok captain is that the players who stood in have grown in stature. “Take Damien de Allende. He has been one of our best performers, while Jesse (Kriel) has been outstanding in attack. You have to remember Jesse is just 21 and still learning. Not many people know but Jesse has played for two teams at centre. One is Baby Boks at U20 Level and the other is the Springboks. Usually he plays at full-back, so it’s been a massive learning curve and he’s stepped up.”Fond memories: Skinstad was part of the 2007 Rugby World Cup winning squadSkinstad says one player who could break up the burgeoning midfield is Jan Serfontein, the 2012 Young Player of the Year. “Jan is very talented and has been unlucky with injuries. He pushed Damien and Jesse in this World Cup. You have the nucleus of a very strong midfield and they’re all in their early twenties.”Skinstad says despite a settled current back three now, there could be changes for Japan 2019. “The back three are settled atthe moment but there will be different personnel. They will lose Bryan (Habana) who’s 32, while JP (Pietersen) might be around. Willie Le Roux probably will be, whileBryan’s understudy is Lwase Mvovo who is 29 so we may see others emerging.”Somewhere the former No 8 has more personal experience is in the pack, where he sees ‘traditional’ values being upheld. “During this World Cup we’ve returned to having more than one enforcer. South Africa has always had five or six players who can carry, tackle, hit rucks. It’s the South Africa way.”Engine room: Eben Etzebeth is only 23 but already hugely experiencedLike the backs, Skinstad says there are loose forwards ready to take over from the likes of Schalk Burger and Francois Louw. “Nizaam Carr who narrowly missed the RWC squad, Siya Kolise who just made the squad but didn’t see much game time and back five player, Pieter Steph du Toit are all capable of replacing the likes of Duane Vermeulen and Willem Alberts when the time is right. 2015 saw the last of 2007 World Cup winners at the tournament but we’re in pretty good shape for 2019.”As for the much-lamented Northern Hemisphere, Skinstad doesn’t subscribe to the notion that there is a chasm between them and the boys in the South. “I wouldn’t say they’re lacking in skill with the North. Remember Wales and Scotland pushed South Africa and Australia very, very close.” Skinstad says he was impressed with Wales’ resilience but says they’ll be disappointed with their execution. “Wales should have scored on two occasions early on. The fact they didn’t cost them the game. The Boks had one and they took it. One chance. I’m not going to bash players, but Wales had the ability with fewer injuries to finish off one of those chances. When you start converting those chances, you’re going to win games more often than not.”Battle royal: Skinstad says the gap between North and South is narrower than many thinkThe former Stormer also doesn’t believe there should be leadership change at the top with England.“There’s no need for root and branch upheaval. Take England. If you turf the coach, you risk losing the culture (Stuart) Lancaster has built. The players will have learnt a huge amount this tournament and it wasn’t exactly an easy pool. They were playing No 3 and No 5 in the World. Clive Woodward lost to us in 1999 and was roasted by the press but he kept his job. He sold a vision and won in 2003. The same with Graham Henry in 2007 and they won in 2011. There’s no need to throw the baby out of the bath water.”As for Wales, Skinstad says Warren Gatland has finished with his reputation almost enhanced. “I mean, what more could he have done? He’s had the sniper on the hill snipping the hamstrings of players. Literally nothing he could have done anything about. In the circumstances, they’ve had a good tournament.”Tough call: Skinstad says there needn’t necessarily be change at the top with EnglandAs for Ireland, he also not got sympathy as their players dropped, one by one. “Since coming in, Joe Schmidt has been excellent for Ireland but they started to get lots of key injuries with (Paul) O’Connell and (Peter) O’Mahony out and Sean O’Brien lost to suspension. It was bad luck. As for Scotland, they were magnificent against Australia and look like a side on the up.” With the Springboks left to lick their wounds, former World Cup winner, Bobby Skinstad is unruffle and says the North-South gap isn’t unsurmountable With Northern Hemisphere side heading South next summer and Ireland due to travel South Africa next, the boys of the North will soon have a chance to start redressing the balance.Bobby Skinstad was speaking at Beyond Rugby at London’s City Hall as part of the Beyond Sport Summit & Awardslast_img read more

Rugby reacts to the proposed under 18 tackling ban

first_imgMore than 70 doctors and academics have called for a ban on tackling in rugby matches played in UK and Irish schools. The proposals have caused a stir in rugby circles so we take a look at the views of players, coaches and medical professionals in the debate LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Allyson Pollock, Professor of Public Health Research and Policy, has written an open letter to UK and Irish Government Ministers calling for a ban on tackling in rugby matches played in UK and Irish schools.Over 70 academics, doctors, and public health professionals have signed the letter which calls for a ban of the collision elements of rugby within school systems, so that children play touch and non-contact rugby.The letter states that there is evidence showing a 28% risk of injury for a child rugby player over a season but critics claim that when taken in context of other sports and activities rugby is actually a relatively safe sport.The rugby community has reacted strongly to this proposal and we have published the views of current and former players, as well as coaches and scientists on both sides of the debate.We give our thoughts on the debate in our latest Podcast so have a listen and be sure to let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook.

The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugby – a special report

first_imgWhen describing what it means to play for Samoa, Jack Lam says: “It’s bigger than ourselves. We always say the jerseys we wear are not our jerseys, they’re the people’s jerseys.”Some describe rugby as being almost like a religion on the islands, yet that is not to reduce the significance of their faith. To see players bedecked in red and white kneeling arm in arm in prayer after Tonga’s win over Fiji is no surprise while you notice how the Fijians come together to sing a hymn at the end of key sessions. The lotu – a time for prayer – is also noted in teams’ daily itineraries like a gym session or physio window.Faith: Tonga and Fiji come together to pray after their Test in JuneSinoti Sinoti talks of Samoa’s mantra of “selfless acts”, putting greater glory ahead of individual deeds, while Fiji flyer Josua Tuisova says: “I want to make sure I fulfil what God has given me.”Having the privilege of spending time with all three teams, we also get to see the laid-back and playful nature of these squads. There’s the constant banter as Tonga play beach volleyball on a rest day (the packed lunch of a wrap, six sandwiches and two muffins is also quite an insight); family time for the Samoa players by the hotel pool after their RWC 2019 first-leg play-off win over Germany; the high-pitched laughter of Fiji players as centre Jale Vatubua is called out for asking reception staff for make-up to cover up a facial cut in an impromptu court-type session.Watisoni Nasalo, who won three caps for Fiji in the Seventies, perfectly sums it up when saying: “When you’re happy doing something, you always do it well.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: FijiInvestigationSamoaTonga If they could harness all the talent available, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga would not only be dangerous on the world stage but consistently competitive. There are several matters that need to be addressed first though… Laughter and singing may be omnipresent off the pitch but there is no denying their talent on it. You’d be hard pressed to find a professional club that doesn’t have at least one player of Pacific Islands heritage on their books for they have skills that can’t be coached.“I was always aware of the special talents Pacific players have,” says John McKee, who’s coached Fiji since 2014, “but I was still surprised when I came to live in Fiji and saw games at local level, schoolboy games, with really talented young players. Fiji has athletes who have a natural talent for playing rugby. For talent and athletic ability, they’re a nine out of ten. It’s the technical and tactical side that we’re working on.“My experience with Fijian players is that they’re keen to listen to new ideas. It’s very refreshing. Other players I’ve worked with before were more fixed in their mindset and it was hard to bring in something different, but Fijian players are much more open.” 1. Introduction2. Page 23. Page 34.

Peter Horne, in charge of World Rugby’s high-performance programmes, says: “Their greatest challenge could be their greatest success. They have talent everywhere; they just need to try to bring it together.” Special Report: The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugby A Sunday evening stroll along the beach in Fiji perfectly illustrates the Pacific Islands’ relationship with rugby. As the sun sets on the 2km stretch of sand between the Pearl and Uprising resorts in Pacific Harbour, on the south coast of Viti Levu, Rugby World passes a trio chucking a ball around in the sea, a group of guys in their late teens engaged in three-a-side touch, a father playing with his three boys, and a mother practising kicking with her son.It’s a similar story on the 45-minute journey from the airport to Apia city centre in Samoa. Every few hundred metres there are kids big and small playing in groups big and small on patches of grass big and small. One toddler is even using a flip-flop in place of a ball.There are myriad examples from our three weeks in the Pacific to demonstrate rugby’s importance. From neatly-presented rugby pitches taking centre stage in schools and villages, the posts at one on the Coral Coast made of bamboo, to the plethora of jerseys – as well as Super Rugby ones, we saw Ospreys and Exeter shirts. From the children at Lami Primary School giddy with excitement at the Tonga team visiting to the photograph hunters trailing the Fiji team around the Warwick hotel on World Selfie Day.

Rugby World Cup Portrait Photos

first_imgTake a look at the poses players are striking ahead of the tournament in Japan Rugby World Cup Portrait PhotosThe Rugby World Cup is a serious business, but before the tournament kicks off and the hunt for the Webb Ellis trophy begins in Japan, all the squads have a photoshoot to do for World Rugby.Getty Images are the official photographers and as well as taking the traditional headshots of all 620 players from the 20 countries taking part in the tournament, they have managed to get some of them to do something a little different and strike unusual poses before the action gets underway.So before the first match – Japan v Russia on Friday 20 September – we thought we’d pick out a few of our favourites from the different shoots so far, where players have shown off their personalities and had a laugh in front of the camera before the rugby begins. And we’ll make additions as more photos are taken.Let’s start with the reigning world champions New Zealand – here’s All Blacks hooker Codie Taylor in a mid-haka pose…Then we have the lesser-known Russia flanker Tagir Gadzhiev, who has been tipped by coach Lyn Jones as ‘one to watch’ during the tournament, donning a wig for his shoot…Does this picture demonstrate how Scotland front-rower Gordon Reid would celebrate a try at the World Cup?Fumiaki Tanaka, the scrum-half, is one of Japan’s most experienced players – and he has a lively personality. Expect to see him pulling a few more funny faces, as well as delivering crisp service, during the tournament…Next there’s France prop Jefferson Poirot. Perhaps he’s suggesting that France can be the silent assassins at this year’s World Cup!

However, the African side are still to win a first ever match in the global showcase.

2019 Rugby World Cup: Russia 9-34 Samoa

first_img Rugby World Cup Groups Collapse TAGS: Samoa Did Lee-Lo get away with this one?Red card or not?#RWC2019 #ITVRugby #RUSvSAM— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) September 24, 2019In the first instance, Poite was discussing with his officiating team that the law framework suggested he should give a red for Lee-Lo’s thump into Vasily Artemyev – before an intervention from TMO Graham Hughes made Poite consider a slight dip as a “mitigating circumstance”. He gave a yellow.In the next instance, despite a head-on-head collision meaning Motu’u would not come back on due to concussion, he still only gave a yellow to the Samoan hooker for his high shot.The Samoans had scored after quarter of an hour through Alapati Leiua but they had slipped behind by a point to 6-5, following two Yuri Kushnarev penalties. Then the illegal hits started thundering in.Russia were wasteful with their two-man advantage, though, and half-time came with the score unchanged. To make matters worst, after the break Samoa scored through Afaesetiti Amosa (who then went off injured) while prop Kirill Gotovtsev also saw yellow for grabbing at the No 8’s neck – which will be discussed as a potential red card too!Kushnarev got a drop-goal to his name but, injury aside, Samoa made the most of their good fortune. They began to open up against the tiring Russians while they were a man down.Ed Fidow found space and romped in for two scores and that man Lee-Lo got a five-pointer to his name too. Samoa had secured a bonus-point win in a match that could have been so different, while Russia exhausted themselves looking in vain for a try that would not come.As Leiua romped home for his second score at the very end, the Russians looked shattered.

Foto de Ari Romer[Episcopal News Service] El Rdo. Jack Stanton es un veterano de las manifestaciones de los derechos civiles y de la guerra de Vietnam. Pero él dio un paso más en mayo cuando se prestó voluntariamente a que lo arrestaran durante una protesta a favor de los trabajadores de un casino que habían sido despedidos por organizar un sindicato en Hallandale Beach, Florida.Otros clérigos, episcopales entre ellos, también desfilaron en la manifestación. “Yo di el paso adicional de ofrecerme para ser arrestado porque creí que llamaría más la atención a lo que estábamos haciendo, y resultó ser así”, dijo Stanton, de 75 años, sacerdote asociado en la catedral Episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity] en Miami. Fue arrestado junto con el Rdo. Richard Aguilar, otro sacerdote de la Diócesis de Florida Sudoccidental que desde entonces abandonó el ministerio parroquial para trabajar como organizador sindical. “Estábamos allí para salir en la foto”.El ser arrestado no es algo que aparezca en las hojas de vida de la mayoría de los sacerdotes, pero, a lo largo de los años, una pequeña pero constante corriente de sacerdotes episcopales, y algunas veces de obispos, han participado en actos de desobediencia civil como un modo de “luchar por la justicia y por la paz entre todos los pueblos” en el intento de vivir a la altura de su Pacto Bautismal. Más recientemente, algunos se han unido al movimiento Ocupar, que cumple su primer aniversario el 17 de septiembre. Otros han sido arrestados en protestas contra guerras, o políticas medioambientales o laborales.“Yo diría que es una presencia constante, pero pequeña a lo largo del tiempo, desde los tiempos de las protestas antibélicas” de la era de la guerra de Vietnam, dijo Mary Miller, que recientemente se jubiló como coordinadora de Consulta [Consultation] una institución genérica que agrupa a organizaciones que luchan a favor de la paz y la justicia, y que antes sirviera como secretaria ejecutiva de la Fraternidad Episcopal de la Paz [Episcopal Peace Fellowship]. “EPF participó activamente en cosas tales como las misas del Pentágono”.Durante las misas, pequeños grupos comenzarían a celebrar la Eucaristía en el vestíbulo principal del Pentágono, explicó ella.  “Inevitablemente, serían arrestados luego de que les pidieran que salieran y ellos no lo hicieran”.La desobediencia civil es “parte de nuestra tradición… Creo que esta tendencia ha estado siempre en el anglicanismo”, dijo. Hay muchísima gente que argüiría que esto es lo que Jesús hacía y enseñaba, y nosotros lo afirmamos. No ha sido desde los primeros tiempos la tendencia dominante en nuestra historia, al menos no desde Constantino, pero el testimonio siempre ha estado ahí.“Y siempre ha sido cuestionado por la dirigencia en cualquier tiempo dado”, agregó, haciendo notar que a Paul Jones, obispo de Utah, “lo expulsaron de la Cámara de Obispos durante la primera guerra mundial” por ser pacifista.Participar en un acto de desobediencia civil es un asunto de convicción personal de parte de un sacerdote o de un obispo, dijo el Rdo. Brian Grieves, director jubilado del ministerio de paz y justicia de la Iglesia Episcopal, que incluye la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales en Washington, D.C.“No puedo recordar que la Iglesia haya dicho jamás nada en la Convención General acerca de la desobediencia civil per se  como un tema de política”, afirmó. “Creo que para muchas personas de la Iglesia es la forma consagrada de resistencia no violenta a problemas de conciencia”.“No somos una Iglesia tradicionalmente pacifista como los menonitas o los cuáqueros”, dijo Grieves. “Pero… aunque no hay ningún enunciado oficial, yo sí creo que, teológicamente, existe un vigoroso planteamiento a favor de las formas no violentas de resistencia en materia de conciencia y que la Iglesia tiene al respecto una vigorosa tradición, incluso si no es oficial, y considero que es parte de lo que somos”.Símbolo poderosoEl calendario episcopal de los santos incluye a Jonathan Daniels, un seminarista blanco muerto a tiros en Alabama luego de proteger a una adolescente negra cuando un auxiliar de alguacil le apuntó con una escopeta a la salida de una tienda.  A Daniels acababan de ponerlo en libertad luego de que lo arrestaran por participar en una manifestación de derechos electorales.Si bien el laicado episcopal participa en la desobediencia civil, la imagen de personas con alzacuellos protestando y siendo esposadas puede ofrecer una convincente ilustración de la posición de la Iglesia respecto a un asunto dado.Desde que el movimiento Ocupar comenzara en septiembre del año pasado, cientos de manifestantes han sido arrestados a través del país. Pero el arresto del obispo jubilado George Packard, de 68 años, en su sotana morada, por haber entrado sin permiso en un terreno durante una protesta que tuvo lugar el 17 de diciembre en Nueva York, atrajo particular atención como símbolo del apoyo de algunos en la Iglesia al movimiento.El simbolismo del arresto de un clérigo “realmente importa”, dijo Miller. “Lleva al resto de nosotros a sentirnos que estamos en buena compañía y que no estamos solos”.“Creo que seguimos siendo dependientes del clero en alguna medida cuando se trata de los rostros públicos”, subrayó. “Sigue habiendo una demanda de que los líderes de la Iglesia se pronuncien”.Marc Andrus, el obispo de California, de 55 años, fue arrestado vistiendo sotana en 2006 por bloquear el acceso al edificio federal en San Francisco en una protesta contra la guerra de Irak.“Estoy consciente de que un obispo es una figura pública de mucho relieve y que por participar en un acto más amplio de desobediencia civil ayudaría a llamar la atención sobre el problema de una manera que algunas personas no pueden hacerlo” afirmó.“Mi idea era que uno tiene que ser juicioso respecto a la frecuencia y las razones por las que uno participa en un acto de desobediencia civil”, agregó. “Yo he estado en muchas manifestaciones, concentraciones y protestas y testimonios y vigilias desde entonces en torno a toda una variedad de problemas…pero no he participado en actos de desobediencia civil desde entonces”.Ser obispo “es un orden de ministerio diferente al de un presbítero o un diácono o un laico”, siguió diciendo. “Tengo que responder ante mi diócesis y ante la Iglesia en general, pero también  tengo que responder de la manera en que uso el poder político, el poder simbólico que me ha sido dado”.“Es más visible que el del líder de una congregación, y creo que tengo una responsabilidad de pensar bien cómo la uso”, afirmó. “No usarla nunca no es una respuesta razonable, me parece a mí”.Andrus, que forma parte de Obispos Laborando por un Mundo Justo, dijo que estaba “encantado” de la participación de Packard en la protesta del 17 de diciembre. “Me gustaría ver más obispos activos, además de obispos jubilados, que asuman esa postura”.Varios otros clérigos fueron arrestados junto con Packard, entre ellos el Rdo. Michael Sniffen, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas y San Mateo [St. Luke and St. Matthew], en Brooklyn, Nueva York.“En verdad fue algo  no planeado, impremeditado”, dijo Sniffen, que asistió a la manifestación de Ocupar Wall Street el 17 de diciembre y decidió en lugar entrar en la propiedad cercada de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad, y arriesgarse al arresto en solidaridad con los manifestantes de Ocupar a los que él había estado apoyando. “Aún siento que hice lo correcto y que actúe conforme a los dictados de mi conciencia”.Desde entonces, Sniffen ha participado en otras actividades locales que abordan problemas económicos. Él se unió, por ejemplo, a unos 30 clérigos, entre ellos más de media docena de colegas de la Diócesis de Long Island, para protestar por las reducciones del presupuesto de Nueva York durante una vista en el ayuntamiento.Al igual que Andrus, Sniffen dijo que él veía sus acciones como parte de sus deberes como un líder de la Iglesia. “Si voy a hablar acerca de algo desde el púlpito y no hago algo con mi propia persona para tratar de transformar lo que aflige al pueblo de Dios, eso que es injusto, entonces en verdad que no tiene ningún sentido que hable de eso”.“A mí me parece bastante claro que el evangelio viene a la vida cuando los clérigos están realmente comprometidos con todos los aspectos de una comunidad de vida y no sólo hablando acerca de la vida de una comunidad”, señaló Sniffen, de 31 años. “La política en este país se encuentra en una situación muy triste. Ahora con más certeza que en cualquier otro momento de mi vida, me parece importante hablar como líder de una comunidad y como líder de fe”.Vivir el evangelioStanton también dijo que veía su desobediencia civil en términos bíblicos. “La idea central de la Biblia es la justicia y el llegar al oprimido y al débil.  A mí me ganó [el caso de] estos 10 obreros porque se encontraban prácticamente impotentes, y los estaban tratando brutalmente —no físicamente, pero sí lo bastante para causarle un terrible perjuicio a sus familias”.“Jesús en su propia vida fue a la cruz. Fue a cumplir con la voluntad de Dios como una especie de protesta. Él estaba de pie allí y la recibió [la cruz] de Pilato”, dijo Stanton, quien afirma que él miraba al Rdo. Martin Luther King y a otros manifestantes de [la lucha por] los derechos civiles como un ejemplo de esto. “Ellos sabían que iban a ser arrestados, pero no iban a detenerse, porque sabían que tenían la verdad de su parte. Ellos asumieron el castigo”.“Para mí… ése es el testimonio de la Biblia y el de Jesús, y creo que en mi propia vida debo mostrar eso”.El Rdo. Joshua Griffin es arrestado en el congreso estatal de Montana durante una protesta contra la explotación minera y la exportación de carbón. Foto de Rae Breaux.El Rdo. P. Joshua Griffin, arrestado en agosto como parte de una protesta contra los planes de comenzar la explotación de minas de carbón en Otter Creek, Montana, y embarcarlo a los puertos de la costa occidental para exportarlo al extranjero, dijo que había encontrado apoyo para esta acción dentro de la Iglesia y en su teología.“Una razón por la que me sentí llamado a participar en esta acción fue realmente porque, como sacerdote, soy llamado a ser obediente a las enseñanzas de nuestra Iglesia y a los que tienen autoridad y liderazgo espiritual”, dijo, y citó en particular  el “lenguaje muy convincente” de la carta de la Cámara de Obispos en 2011 desde Quito, Ecuador, en que instaban a todos los episcopales a laborar  por un clima de justicia, y a la aprobación de la Resolución B023 de la Convención General en julio que llamaba a la Iglesia “a resistir el desarrollo y la expansión de las fuentes de combustible fósil cada vez más poco convencionales, peligrosas y ambientalmente destructivas y a progresar hacia la conversión de fuentes más sostenibles”.“Siento que mi trabajo en Montana y la participación en este evento fueron en directa obediencia a esta enseñanza de nuestra Iglesia”, dijo Griffin, también de 31 años, presbítero asociado en la iglesia episcopal de San David de Gales [St. David of Wales] en Portland, Oregón, y ex misionero de justicia medioambiental de la Diócesis de California. “Me entusiasma mucho que la política oficial de nuestra Iglesia sea la de resistir esta clase de males”.La desobediencia civil “es una tradición muy antigua en la Iglesia Episcopal”, dijo Griffin, quien también fue arrestado tres veces mientras trabajaba en California. Él identificó a su mentor como el capellán de su universidad, el Rdo. Canónigo Henry Atkins, que una vez fue capellán de los Panteras Negras, laboró para integrar las iglesias del Sur durante el movimiento de los derechos civiles y escondió a refugiados centroamericanos en una iglesia de Nueva Jersey en los años ochenta.Una razón por la cual él sabía que tenía un hogar en la Iglesia Episcopal era por su compromiso [de la Iglesia] con la Encarnación y la “política encarnacional”, señaló Griffin. “Sabía que estaba llamado a hacer esta obra, y sabía que encontraría apoyo”.El Rdo. Jim Lewis hizo servicio comunitario en un camión de recogida de basuras luego de ser arrestado por protestar contra la guerra de Irak. Foto de Mike Youngren.El Rdo. Jim Lewis, de Charleston, Virginia Occidental, activista durante mucho tiempo y quien cumplirá 77años el 1 de octubre, ha sido arrestado mientras protestaba de las actividades de EE.UU. en América Central, por apoyar una huelga de los mineros de carbón en Virginia, por protestar la financiación de la guerra de Irak y por ayudar a obreros avícolas inmigrantes en Delaware. Ordenado en 1964, participó en las manifestaciones a favor de los derechos civiles, pero no se involucró en actos de desobediencia civil hasta los años ochenta.“Fui a América Central y vi a personas que estaban siendo devastadas por la política de EE.UU.”, dijo. “Regresé diciendo, ‘debemos cambiar la política de EE.UU. Tenemos que dejar de financiar esta matanza’”.Él fue arrestado en una oficina congresional en Michigan, porque “sentí como si se exigiera algo más de mí en ese punto: poner mi cuerpo en la trinchera… No es que creyera que era algo mejor de lo que había hecho en el pasado. Simplemente fue casi una evolución natural para mí”.Lewis dijo que le gustaría ver a más clérigos participando en [actos de] desobediencia civil, pero reconoce que no todo el mundo está llamado a esa acción.“Me parece que hay un momento en que los clérigos deben quedarse al margen de esto”, resaltó. “No todo el mundo es llamado a hacer esto, pero creo que algunos de nosotros sí lo están”.“No lo veo como ningún timbre de honor. No es una condecoración de Dios y la patria… Lo veo simplemente como otro paso hacia el centro del terreno, si estás llamado a hacer eso y a dar tu testimonio. Pero no lo veo como un movimiento masivo en la Iglesia Episcopal”.El reto de la no violenciaMirando retrospectivamente, Stanton dijo que él creía que más clérigos habían participado en actos de desobediencia civil durante el movimiento en pro de los derechos civiles.Pero el Rdo. Canónigo Edward Rodman, activista de los derechos civiles, dijo que “en general los clérigos no fueron particularmente notables…  por su compromiso con la no violencia. Fueron muy buenos en lo que respecta a la desobediencia civil, y creo que debe hacerse una distinción muy clara. La desobediencia civil conlleva la disposición a ser arrestado. Montones de personas estaban dispuestas a ello, pero no estaban necesariamente preparadas para recibir una paliza, y ésa es la verdadera diferencia”.“Hubo muchos clérigos de esa era que eran muy valientes y que no por ello participaron directamente en el movimiento, pero que se plantaron y realizaron actos de valor, de tal manera que eso no puede descartarse”, apuntó.Rodman, de 70 años, ha participado en la preparación antirracista de la Iglesia Episcopal y es profesor de la cátedra John Seely Stone de teología pastoral y ministerio urbano en la Escuela Episcopal de Teología de Cambridge, Massachusetts.“La mayoría de mis actos de desobediencia civil y de mis arrestos tuvieron lugar mientras estaba en la escuela secundaria y en la licenciatura, no después de ingresar en el seminario y luego de éste”, explicó. “Fui más un entrenador y un consejero en este tiempo”.Y él sigue desempeñando ese papel. “Aquí en Cambridge, tenemos un grupo realmente magnífico de gente vieja como yo que vivieron los movimientos de los derechos civiles y de la paz… Hemos organizado un colectivo para intentar ayudar a los jóvenes anarquistas y a otros que tratan de discernir lo que es apropiado de lo que no lo es en el área de la desobediencia civil y qué clase de compromiso espiritual serio uno tiene que tener.“Yo diría que la diferencia fundamental entre entonces y ahora es el hecho de que este grupo más joven realmente no entiende eso”, apuntó él. “Es mucho más impaciente, y yo diría que son temerarios; el término que usaría es ése, porque la mayoría de ellos son privilegiados, no se dan cuenta del grado en que la opresión y la violencia puede llover sobre ellos si no son cuidadosos. Creo que algunos de ellos adquirieron esa amarga experiencia en Oakland”, dijo, refiriéndose a los violentos enfrentamientos con la policía durante las manifestaciones del movimiento Ocupar en California.Durante el movimiento por los derechos civiles y los primeros tiempos de las protestas contra la guerra de Vietnam, señaló él, “había una continuidad en el …compromiso espiritual con la disciplina de la no violencia y su estudio y el entrenamiento que le seguía”.“En verdad, la gente de Ocupar, dicho en su mérito, aprendieron la lección fundamental de cualquier movimiento de cambio social no violento, y ésa es la noción del liderazgo compartido”, agregó. “Se trata del pueblo que se esfuerza en tomar las decisiones y no la estrella que se prepara para ser asesinada”.– Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.
