Garment Workers on Hunger Strike in India!
We are workers at Avery Dennison India Pvt. Ltd in, and also members of Garment and Textile workers Union (GATWU) Bangalore, India, and we are now on a hunger strike to protest the inhumane behavior of our management, and also violation of various Indian labour laws!! It's a multimillion dollar operation which produces products for brand giants such as H&M, Adidas, Zara, Levi's, Gap, Marks & Spencer, Nike, and many others. For many years, Avery Dennison has been paying us differing wages for the same amount of work, through subcontracting out some of us but not others. They have used this as an excuse to pay UNDER the already-low minimum wage for the work we do! Several of our colleagues have been forced to work back-to-back short-term contracts for the same amount of work, with no stoppage, just like permanent employees, but with none of the benefits, some for over 10 years. This is completely unacceptable; we have the right to provide for our families just like any other worker. When we see the CEOs and owners of some of these firms making the list of richest billionaires in the world, we know that it is our labor that creates their profits, yet our factory refuses to respect our basic rights or the rule of law. This is why we decided to form a union. With the support of Garment and Textile Workers' Union, we organized to tell our employer that we deserve our basic rights. The employer, instead of respectfully negotiating with us, decided to retaliate. They illegally dismissed 44 of our colleagues for daring to stand up for our rights and to scare us into submission. But we will not be intimidated! We are now on our 5th day of our hunger strike to demand that they: Reinstate ALL terminated workers Make contract workers permanent Provide equal pay for equal work Stop worker discrimination Stop union busting! Join us to demand that Avery Dennison, and the brands that work with them, do the right thing! Signed, Avery Dennison Pvt. Ltd. Workers Bangalore, India
Create Vegan Friendly Footwear Options with Faux Leather
The production of real leather requires the death and suffering of cows. Everyone knows this. So why do mainstream shoe companies still not carry faux leather options? Faux leather is cheaper to produce, lasts longer, and most importantly, does not harm animals. That's why it's absurd that a shoe company as successful and popular as Adidas does not carry vegan (faux leather) options in any of its styles. Not only does this prevent vegan and ethical shoppers from being able to purchase their shoes, but it perpetuates the idea that we as a society need to use leather. Would Adidas signature styles such as the Superstar and Stan Smith still be as stylish and highly sought-after if they were made with faux leather? I dare say they would. However, I recognize that making the leap from using real cow leather to using solely faux leather is a difficult process. Therefore, I propose a solution. Would it not be absolutely fantastic -- for both humans and animals- if Adidas was to come out with a line of faux leather versions of its most popular styles? This would be an idea that benefits everyone involved. Adidas would open up their market to vegan customers, vegan customers would be able to purchase a pair or two (or twenty) of fashionable new cruelty-free shoes, and fewer cows would have their lives taken for a fashion material that already has a cheaper, more durable alternative. Sign this petition if you agree that everyone would benefit from Adidas coming out with vegan/faux leather versions of their most popular styles. Signing won’t cost you a thing, but if we are successful, your signature may just save the life of an innocent animal.
Sostituzione della toppa sponsor Jeep sulla prima maglia della Juventus
Sembrava che, con la maglia Home 17/18, l'utilizzo della toppa sponsor sui kit della Juventus fosse finalmente stato abbandonato; ebbene, da quelli che sembrano essere i leaks ufficiali della maglia del prossimo anno, pare che Adidas e Juventus abbiano deciso inspiegabilmente di tornare sui loro passi, riproponendola per la prossima stagione. Il malcontento generale non ha tardato ad arrivare e la maggior parte dei feedback tende ad essere negativa. Chiediamo ad Adidas e Juventus di rivedere la Loro idea e di utilizzare per le maglie la stessa tipologia di applicazione dello sponsor utilizzata su quelle della attuale stagione 17/18, onde evitare l'eccessiva perdita di potenziali acquirenti della stessa. #noToppa Ps: l'immagine in copertina è stata inserita semplicemente per rendere l'idea, ovviamente nella versione reale sarebbe previsto l'inserimento del logo del marchio registrato (R) . // It seemed that, with the 2017/18 home jersey, the use of the sponsor patch on Juventus kits had finally been abandoned. Well, from what seem to be the official leaks of the shirt for next year, it seems that Adidas and Juventus have decided inexplicably to retrace their steps, proposing it for the next season. The general discontent has not been slow to arrive and most of the feedback tends to be negative. We ask Adidas and Juventus to review their idea and to use for the shirts the same type of application of the sponsor used on those of the current 2017/18 shirt, to avoid the excessive loss of potential buyers of the same. #noBoxLogo

Urge Companies to Ditch Plastic and Find Alternatives
Plastic is the number one trash problem we have been faced with in our generation. It is in our oceans, landfills, lakes, it blows around our land and is being found in almost all living creatures. It is nearly impossible to go shopping and not buy plastic of some sort. It is time for things to change on a corporate level, it is time for companies to start switching over to other alternatives. There is technology that exists that give us alternatives and it is time for these large companies to start utilizing these technologies. In signing this petition you are making a stand to demand that companies find new solutions and stop being part of the problem. You are also stating that you yourself are going to look for alternatives to plastic and try to work toward a solution as well. We are all affected by the over use of plastic in our world. In a study commissioned by data journalism outlet Orb, 83% of tap water samples collected from over a dozen countries on five continents tested positive for microplastic. In a US study they found microplastic in 94% of tap water. There are about 300 million tons of plastic produced annually. There are studies that are researching the effect on marine life and birds like this one, Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. They said "So much plastic trash is flowing into the oceans that 90 percent of seabirds eat it now and virtually every one will be consuming it by 2050." In 1960 plastic was found in only 5% of birds. During this study the plastic found inside birds includes bags, bottle caps, synthetic fibers from clothing, and tiny rice-sized bits that have been broken down by the sun and waves. Tipa is an Israeli company that produce plastic alternative packaging. Nature works a company in Nebraska creates a plastic alternative made from corn. Biome Bioplastics is one of the UK’s leading developers of natural plastics. We are demanding change! Big companies, its time to get on board and ditch the plastic!
Quitar bandera republicana de la equipación de la selección para el Mundial de Rusia 2018
El objetivo de esta recogida de firmas es que se haga otra equipacion para la Selección Española, para el Mundial de Rusia de 2018, ya que el modelo de Adidas presentado oficialmente, incluye los colores de la bandera republicana. España es una monarquía parlamentaria, estamos orgullosos de nuestra Constitución y de nuestro Jefe de Estado, y es una falta de respeto a ambos ir en contra suya en una competición. España no es una república, su bandera es anticonstitucional, y los españoles no la queremos para que nos represente. ¡Viva España!
Boycott Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup of Slavery
Boycott Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup of Slavery. Slavery is building the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and the Western world is profiting from this slavery. Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup is killing thousands of fathers, husbands, and families. @WorldCupSlavery What You Can Do 1) Electronically sign this petition to boycott the 2022 World Cup. One click to stop slavery. 2) Make this petition viral. Share, Tweet, Snap, Insta or e-mail this petition to anyone and everyone. Also, ask influential bloggers/newspapers, personal connections, and organizations to support this petition. No matter the method, raising awareness helps end this injustice. 3) Please follow this issue @WorldCupSlavery. Your follow and support makes a difference. 4) Socially pressure FIFA’s sponsors: VISA, Hyundai/KIA, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, ADIDAS and Anheuser-Busch InBev. 5) Promote this petition so more people see and share the message (see the tab on the right of the screen). Quick Facts PLEASE WATCH! ESPN E60’s documentary illustrates the human rights violations. In preparation to host the 2022 World Cup, Qatar is using slavery to build over 200 billion dollars of infrastructure. Many Western sponsors, construction companies, and businesses will profit from this slavery. Qatar’s World Cup construction is expected to kill over 7,000 workers. FIFA, the Western world, and Qatar are killing 7,000 fathers, sons, and brothers in order to profit off soccer. Qatar is not only killing 7,000 workers, but destroying 7,000 families. The forced laborer’s families cannot withstand the loss of their primary income earner. Often, the families lose their home, starve, or are forced to make inhumane decisions for survival. The international community has condemned Qatar’s system of slavery. The United Nation’s described Qatar’s kafala system as “slavery-like conditions.” The United States Department of State concluded, “Approximately 94 percent of the country’s workforce is comprised of men and women from South and Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East who voluntarily come to work as low- and semiskilled workers, primarily in construction, oil and gas, service, transportation, and domestic work, but some subsequently face forced labor.” Solution Our social pressure could end Qatar’s slavery. This petition seeks to 1) Force FIFA to change the 2022 World Cup hosting country, and 2) Force Qatar to abolish its migrant work sponsorship program (kafala system). Collectively, this petition will apply social pressure to the sponsors of the 2022 World Cup. Driven by that social pressure, sponsors will threaten to end sponsorship to avoid negative publicity and financial losses. Under the threat of losing sponsors and public support, FIFA will demand changes from the Qatari government. Summary of Qatar’s Slavery Qatar regulates their migrant workforce through a work sponsorship program called a kafala system. Qatar’s kafala system entraps the immigrants with false promises of adequate wages, only to significantly reduce their pay upon their arrival to Qatar. If the forced laborer protests, Qatar unlawfully detains insubordinate employees, allows employers to withhold pay, and enables employers to confiscate passports to prevent the forced laborers to return home. With this disproportional leverage over the laborers, employers force laborers into dangerous working conditions. Employers force immigrant workers to labor for 16 hours in 120° heat. The forced laborers sleep 10 to 14 people in a very small room with no running water or sewage system. Under these dangerous working and living conditions, experts estimate that Qatar’s system of slavery will kill upwards of 7,000 workers before the start of the 2022 World Cup. Qatar’s kafala system not only harms the forced laborers, but destroys the forced laborers’ families as well. If the forced laborers die, their families lose their primary income earner. If the laborers survive, employers reduce pay, delay pay, or withhold pay completely. The forced laborers’ families depend on this income. Without this income, wives, grandparents, and children living in the forced laborers’ origin country lose homes, starve, and struggle to survive. Qatar’s kafala system violates several human rights laws. The United Nation’s Human Rights Officer described Qatar’s kafala system as leading to “slavery-like conditions.” The United Nations Convention Against Torture found that “Qatar continues to be a destination country for men and women subjected to forced labour and forced prostitution.” The Convention Against Torture also found “… reports of widespread torture or ill-treatment and abuse of migrant workers, in particular those under the sponsorship system (kafeel).” Qatar’s exploitation of migrant workers will only increase with the 2022 World Cup preparations. To prepare for the 2022 World Cup, Qatar plans to spend over 200 billion dollars in infrastructure through 2030. Because of Qatar’s construction needs, Qatar has recruited a significant number of migrant workers typically from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, the Philippines, or Sri Lanka. In fact, estimates suggest that the 1.39 million migrant workers in Qatar make up 94% of Qatar’s workforce. Why is this petition urgent? If FIFA’s contractual liabilities in Qatar increase too much, FIFA likely will not terminate their 2022 World Cup contract. Because of contractual obligations, FIFA may be liable for Qatar’s World Cup investments. If FIFA breaks their World Cup contract with Qatar, Qatar could sue to recover their World Cup investments. The longer we wait, the more money Qatar spends on World Cup preparations. Currently, Qatar is estimated to spend over 200 billion on infrastructure and World Cup preparations. That means the longer we wait, the less likely FIFA is to demand reform to Qatar’s kafala system or change the 2022 World Cup location.

Boycott Kanye West
We the people feel it's necessary to put Kanye West in timeout until he gets a thorough mental evaluation and help. I'm not talking about this overnight rush Kanye away to make the public think he's getting help, damage control stunt arranged by the Kardashian's... I'm talking real Iyanla Vanzant "Fix Kanye's Life" help. I think Donda West would appreciate us not condoning his buffoonery, which seems to have worsened during his marriage to Kim Kardashian. The "slavery was a choice" comment on TMZ, childish Jay Z and Beyonce rants, reckless tweets supporting Donald Trump... and recent Oval Office rambling (calling the MAGA hat, his Superman cape) are more than enough reasons to Boycott Kanye. "This Kanye moment might be entertaining if the logic that he is endorsing and that Trump espouses wasn’t the foundation for real-life damage to millions of poor & black/brown folks. Ideas matter." -DeRay McKesson We will no longer tolerate his unbalanced thought process contaminating the energy of dedicated fans and young listeners. I ask all concerned and bothered hip-hop consumers to boycott Kanye, Adidas, Def Jam, Kanye West music, fashion, merchandise and shows until his weirdo episodes are nonexistent and West brings the old Kanye back. Kanye West graduated from music asset, to a perfect example of how fame and wealth can make you forget your blackness and corrupt your basic moral values... Long story short, "Kanye West doesn't care about black people." Sincerely, The People #BoycottKanye #MuteKanye #TheResistance #BlackLivesMatter #YeVsThePeople #BoycottAdidas #BoycottDefJam
