Visibility of LBT women enhanced through SWAG – Akola Thompson

first_imgWomen empowerment in Guyana had seen a sizable increase over the past year, ever since a new movement was launched to target the need for equality among all.This was according to the coordinator of SASOD Women’s Arm Guyana (SWAG), Akola Thompson, who noted that the foundation has significantly impacted the visibility of LBT (Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender) women and has provided a voice for many who are discriminated against in society.“So far, we have really promoted the visibility of LBT women and that’s not something that has been happening a lot. For a long time, you never really saw a lot of LBT women in public spaces and that is a thing that has been significantly changing,” Thompson stated.Through the movement, numerous empowerment sessions were conducted with women in various communities across Guyana; an activity which they hope to increase as time progresses.“Since the launching of SWAG, we have begun monthly empowerment sessions also aimed at providing community orientation for our community members and these are some things that we’re hoping to continue and also expand into other regions as the time goes by. We recognise that advocacy is largely sensitised and sensualised and we need to have more spaces in communities that do not have the same access as Georgetown.” To further eliminate acts of violence against women through sensitisation, SWAG will be partnering with a number of organisations, including the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA).“CEDA committee had recommended enacting antidiscrimination legislation that includes the prohibition of all forms of discrimination against women. So far, none of this has happened and we’re calling on Government to personally repeal discriminatory laws and practices and to put in more mechanisms in strengthening and supporting LBT persons in the community,” Thompson stated.Since the launch of the organisation on Women’s Day 2017, outreaches were conducted with LGT women to address the issues of violence and discrimination that they face on a daily basis.It was revealed that these discussions will continue in the coming months to spread more awareness to promote equality.last_img read more

Exclusive – ‘Hodgson revolutionised Swiss football, he must be given time to do the same with England’

first_imgFormer Switzerland international Ramon Vega has told talkSPORT the FA must give Roy Hodgson time to become a success as England boss.Hodgson has so far been unable to bring the best out of his Three Lions side during his two years as manager, having failed to register a win at the summer’s World Cup.But ex-Tottenham defender Vega says the former Liverpool chief revolutionised Swiss football during his three years in charge of the national side, from everything to the first-team set-up to their academy system.And he believes Hodgson should be given the time and the freedom to do the same with England.“Switzerland are on the football map because of Roy, they are where they are today because of him,” Vega told Drivetime.“When Hodgson took charge Switzerland didn’t really exist in the football world, everyone in the country was just talking about cuckoo clocks, chocolate and banking.“But now we’ve got some quality players who are playing abroad, while our youth team won the Under-17 World Cup in 2009.“The most important part of Roy’s time as boss is that he put a proper academy structure in place from the bottom to the top.“That’s why today we’ve got a lot of youth players coming into the first team.“I think England should look into that and do something similar and I think Roy is on his way to doing that, but the question is whether he is given the time to do it properly.”last_img read more

De Gea hails ‘real Man Utd’ after starring against Spurs

first_img0Shares0000Unbeatable: Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was in superb form against Tottenham at Wembley © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 13 – David De Gea said the “real Manchester United” had been on show after his brilliant goalkeeping display secured a 1-0 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.Victory gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his sixth successive win in all competitions, and fifth in a row in the Premier League, as United’s caretaker manager since replacing the sacked Jose Mourinho. It also meant the former United striker had broken the record of the legendary Matt Busby, who won his first five games as the Old Trafford club’s manager.Marcus Rashford scored the only goal shortly before half-time but credit for the win belonged primarily to De Gea whose 11 saves were the most he had made in a top-flight match without conceding a goal.But the 28-year-old played down his contribution to United’s latest victory, a win that saw them draw level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal and instead praised the “happiness” Solskjaer has brought to the dressing room.“We won the game against a top team, we controlled the first half but in the second half they had chances,” De Gea told Sky Sports.“I was feeling very well with the first two saves, it was a great game. I don’t even remember some of the saves so I can’t pick a best.“The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now.“This is the real Manchester United.”Meanwhile, Rashford was in no doubt about how much De Gea had done against a Tottenham side who remained nine points adrift of league leaders Liverpool.“It’s a good responsibility to be the main striker but everyone has chipped in,” said Rashford. “It was the keeper (who won us the game) today.”Meanwhile Tottenham defender Ben Davies said Mauricio Pochettino’s men should not be disheartened by a defeat that was largely down to De Gea’s ‘dream match’ between the posts.“David de Gea has pulled off three or four brilliant saves, and on another day, they go in,” Davies said.“It is disappointing but it wasn’t the worst performance. The boys up front are slotting them away most weeks, but today it wasn’t their day.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

German league boss slams Champions League reform plans

first_img“So far, the UEFA competitions are a sensible supplement to our core product, which is, and will remain, the Bundesliga,” Peters told German tabloid Bild.“Anything that could harm the status of the Bundesliga is not something I am going to agree to. We have to defend ourselves against it.”The Wall Street Journal reported last week that UEFA and the European Clubs Association (ECA) were to discuss reforms that would radically change the way European club football is structured.According to a further report in Bild this weekend, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli presented concrete proposals at a meeting of UEFA and the ECA in Nyon, Switzerland last Tuesday.Agnelli, who is also the current president of the ECA, is said to have outlined an ‘explosive’ plan to bring all UEFA competitions into a coherent league system when the next Champions League cycle comes to an end in 2024.The plan would reportedly see the Champions League reorganised into four groups of eight teams, with the top four of each group qualifying for a knockout round.Teams who finished bottom of their group would be relegated into a second tier, formed out of what is currently the Europa League.The format would effectively end the traditional arrangement by which clubs qualify for European competition via their domestic leagues.– ‘Absolutely unacceptable’ –Bild described the plans as “the introduction of a European Super League via the back door”.There was further criticism from Georg Pangl, general secretary of the Association of European Professional Football Leagues.“If these reports are true, and I have no doubt they are, then the Champions League would become a closed circle from 2024,” Pangl told Bild.“It would be more or less the same 32 top clubs each year, without the champions of the national leagues getting a chance to qualify. That would be absolutely unacceptable.”Earlier this week, Spanish league (LFP) president Javier Tebas also distanced himself from the proposals, and insisted that La Liga would not change its schedule to accomodate weekend Champions League fixtures.“We are not going to stop playing at the weekend,” said Tebas at a campaign launch on Friday.“I can also guarantee that La Liga will have 20 clubs for the next 20 years.”“What worries me is that the directors of these big clubs don’t realise the harm that they will be doing to their clubs,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The UEFA Champions League is reportedly on the brink of a dramatic reform. © AFP / Fabrice COFFRINIBERLIN, Germany, Mar 23 – The vice-president of the German Football league (DFL) has spoken out against an alleged plan by Europe’s top clubs to dramatically reform the UEFA Champions League.DFL boss Peter Peters said that the Bundesliga would have to defend itself in the wake of reports that Europe’s top competition could be transformed by the introduction of weekend fixtures and a tiered system with relegation and promotion.last_img read more
