MILAN — This could be the season that AC Milan finally makes it back into the Champions League.Milan has won Europe’s premier club competition seven times but hasn’t played in the Champions League since the 2013-14 season.However, Gennaro Gattuso’s team came from behind to beat Parma 2-1 and moved into fourth spot in Serie A — the last qualifying berth for the Champions League.Milan is two points above Lazio, which visits Chievo Verona later. It is also three points below city rival Inter Milan, which plays at Roma in the evening match.Only two points separated Milan and Parma going into the match at San Siro, but Parma had already beaten Inter at the famous stadium and was looking to add another chapter to its fairytale-like rise in its first season back in Serie A since going bankrupt three years ago and being forced to restart in Serie D.Milan dominated but Parma took the lead against the run of play when Roberto Inglese headed in a corner at the near post in the 49th minute.Parma’s lead lasted less than six minutes before Suso’s ball was deflected through to Patrick Cutrone and he fired in off the base of the far post.And Milan’s comeback was complete in the 71st when Franck Kessie converted a penalty after Alessandro Bastoni handled Hakan Calhanoglu’s cross.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/apf-Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsDaniella Matar, The Associated Press
Nat’l fightback needed vs banks’ attacksMarissa AlexanderMuch has been written exposing the inherent racist nature of the so-called U.S. justice system and how the “not guilty’” verdict of the killer of Trayvon Martin is a perfect example of this. That George Zimmerman and his lawyers maintained that he was merely defending himself when he fatally shot an unarmed teenager has not only unleashed outrage for justice for Martin, but also highlighted countless local cases of people of color sent to jail for justifiably defending themselves.Two cases in particular that have drawn more national attention since the Zimmerman verdict are of two Black women, Marissa Alexander and CeCe McDonald. Alexander is a 32-year-old mother of three children and a survivor of domestic violence, who, in an effort to keep her abusive ex-spouse from attacking her, fired a warning shot at a ceiling to scare him away in 2010. The warning shot worked, possibly saving her life. Just minutes before that, he had threatened to kill her.Cece McDonaldThough he was never injured, Alexander was arrested and charged with “endangering her children” by firing the shot. It was thought that in the state of Florida, the now notorious “Stand Your Ground,” a k a “Shoot first, ask questions later,” law would be used to pardon her. Instead the jury took 12 minutes to deliberate and brought back a guilty verdict. So while Zimmerman was set free after admittedly killing an unarmed teenager who he stalked for looking “suspicious,” Alexander, who did not kill anyone, was sentenced to 20 years!The same Florida state attorney, Angela Corey, who was a member of the prosecution team during the Zimmerman trial, is the same lawyer who argued that Alexander shot her warning shot in “anger,” not fear, and deserved the 20-year sentence.In fact, Alexander’s former spouse, who served time for battering her and openly admitted abusing her and previous partners, is free while she is in jail. While Alexander is hoping for an appeal process to overturn her sentence, a new battle cry and movement have emerged calling for her freedom now! Demonstrations to free Alexander have happened in Oakland, Calif., during a current sit-in by Dream Defenders at the Tallahassee state capitol, and elsewhere, along with more media and organizational support for the case. This individual support for Alexander is tied to the demand to repeal all Stand Your Ground laws, not only in Florida but in other states as well.Another case of injusticeCeCe McDonald was also unjustly imprisoned for defending herself. She is a 23-year-old African-American transwoman who was brutally attacked by a mob of white racists as she and her friends walked to the grocery store in Minneapolis in June 2011. A glass mug had already been smashed against her face, severing her jaw, when McDonald reached into her purse for a small pair of scissors. One of her attackers, who had a swastika tattooed on his arm, ended up stabbed to death.For what was clearly an act of self-defense, McDonald was sentenced to 41 months in prison. To date, no one has ever been jailed for assaulting McDonald or charged with committing a racist or anti-transgender “hate” crime. Due to transphobia, McDonald has not gained the same publicity as Alexander in the corporate media. There is, however, a resurgence of news articles in the independent and lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer press as well as highly forwarded posts on social media calling for her freedom, which have exposed her case to a wider audience of people.Both these women — Alexander and CeCe McDonald — have become symbols of the injustice inherent in the capitalist legal system and the clear, resounding message that it will take independent, people’s power on the ground to free them. To learn more of what you can do to support the struggle to win their freedom, go to justiceformarissa.blogspot.com/ and supportcece.wordpress.com/.In all three cases — McDonald, Alexander and Trayvon Martin, who also had the right to defend himself against Zimmerman — fought against their attackers and were punished or lynched for it. This has been the historic and prevailing trend that sends a clear message from the U.S. ruling class that oppressed peoples do not have the right to fight back against their bigoted attackers.All three have become symbols of heroism. To stand up for the right of self-defense against racist, sexist or anti-LGBTQ violence must be a fundamental right. Again the capitalist legal system cannot be relied on for justice. Only through building people’s power in the streets and in our communities can we win true justice for Trayvon Martin and freedom for Marissa Alexander and CeCe McDonald Now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Look away Wales fans: Kurtley Beale breaks Welsh hearts with a last minute score in last year’s encounterBy Owain JonesWALES AND Australia face-off tomorrow evening in the last fixture of an intriguing, and sometimes compelling Autumn Series. Here are a few underlying reasons this final Test could turn out to be a classicThe grenades have been launchedEwen McKenzie and Warren Gatland were both at it during this week’s phoney war. Gatland has been ‘lying low’ of late but came out to assuage that the Autumn Tests were were only warm-ups for the Six Nations and his charges were ‘very confident’ of success. McKenzie took the bait, returning the volley with the assertion that Wallabies had the upper-hand psychologically and Wales were ‘worried’ about falling to a ninth consecutive loss.He went on to infer Gatland’s men had deep-seated insecurities over their opponents. The barbs are only to be expected. Both coaches were spiky front row men in their playing days and not given to taking a backward step. Expect more ‘dialogue’ between these two as the World Cup approaches.Improving: McKenzie is settling in as Wallaby coachWobbly Wallabies have a point to proveIt was a gutsy move by McKenzie to reprimand fifteen squad members for an impromptu knees-up in which six players were given a one-game suspension after a late-night jaunt to the Krystle nightclub, Dublin, before the Ireland Test. He took a calculated risk his side would have enough class to down Scotland while the likes of Adam Ashley-Cooper, Benn Robinson, Tatafu Polota-Nau and Nick Cummins were on the naughty step .With quartet now reinstalled, you’d expect them to be looking to prove a point to their coach.McKenzie decided to stamp his authority on a squad who had previously erred on a regular basis, with disciplinary problems over booze and brawls. We will find out if the gamble worked just before 7pm on Saturday evening. MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 29: George North of the Lions lifts Israel Folau of Wallabies while carrying the ball during game two of the International Test Series between the Australian Wallabies and the British & Irish Lions at Etihad Stadium on June 29, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Matt King/Getty Images for HSBC) World Cup dress rehearsalIt’s a moot point whether, if given the chance to wind back the clock, Kurtley Beale would have scored that match-winning try against Wales last December had he known the ramifications. The result dropped Wales down to ninth position, and thus out of the second-tier seedings for the World Cup. As we all know, that led to a genuine ‘group of death’ for 2015 in Pool A, with Australia and England. Australia are only expected to play Wales on one more occasion, next Autumn, before lining up against them on October 10th 2015, at Twickenham, so every possible advantage will be fought for. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS George North v Israel Folau: The rematchAfter an epic duel in the summer with the Lions, Israel Folau and George North are the jumb0-sized darlings of the rugby world. When North wasn’t blazing a trail to the tryline in the first Test or picking up his ‘Folau backpack’ in the second, it was Folau, a relative union novice, who was fast-proving to be the player the ARU could not afford to lose. Now installed at full-back, Folau already has nine tries in 14 Tests, is a devastating broken-field runner, superb operator in the air and a skilled offloader. Wales will do well to avoid kicking to him in space. As for North, he has had a mixed Autumn campaign but his match-winning quality is beyond doubt.Big lift: North and Folau had a titanic battle in the summerWales and Australia have previousThis match-up has turned in some mini-classics in recent years, with Australia invariably having the last laugh. Only five points separate these sides in the last three Tests, and the last, 12 months ago at the Millennium Stadium, will have left deep mental scars for the Welsh players involved on the day, as a late, late Kurtley Beale score with 25 seconds left left them inconsolable.We’ll soon find out if winning the Lions series – seven of the Wales players who featured in the final Test line-up tomorrow evening – will give them the mental edge remains to be seen.
