Call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to save Net Neutrality!

On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to take up a proposal to repeal Net Neutrality. The plan the repeal Net Neutrality is expected to be successful.                      As such, we'd like to extend this opportunity to                Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to do something great...Save The Internet!   As the information and business backbone of our society, this decision would be nothing short of horrendous - imagine what your cable company will do when they can treat the internet like cable.    This attack on the free and open internet, one that has allowed the US to lead global information and tech innovation,  will suffocate US innovation and seriously damage the economy.    Therefore we humbly call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to pull all their services - Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps, GSuite, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, etc.; Amazon, Zappos, Amazon Web Services, Audible; iTunes, iDrive, Apple Music, etc.; Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, etc from any ISP that takes advantage of any rule weakening or destroying Net Neutrality.   We also call on Google, Amazon, Apple & Facebook to vigorously oppose any government to allow ISPs to block, slow, or otherwise discriminate against certain content or applications.                              Imagine a world where we're still all using AOL on dial-up.   Changes to the new rules include any changes to network access or speed, either to the benefit of those who can pay more to have their content move faster than others through the network of an ISP, or to the detriment of those who do not, in effect forcing ISPs to treat themselves as "common carriers".                                                    _______ If Net Neutrality is not upheld, internet service providers (ISPs), generally your cable company, will be able to decide which websites you can see, prevent you from accessing any website they see fit, charge you extra for access to certain pages or services (think $5/mo for Facebook!), and destroy new innovations.

Remove NRA TV from Amazon's Streaming Service & Website

My oldest friend (for nearly 20 years) has a son who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas and was there last week, huddling and hiding for his life. For 30 anxious minutes, we knew there was a school shooting but has no word on his safety. We learned he was okay fairly quickly, but too many others weren't so lucky. After seeing 17 young people lose their lives, I was angered to see the defensive reaction from the National Rifle Association - and upset when I saw that Amazon hosts NRAtv, a channel with the slogan “America’s Most Patriotic Team on a Mission to Take Back The Truth." It’s a 24-hour streaming service with 22 original series that promote the NRA's propaganda, and there’s even an entire segment devoted to how it should be easier to purchase an AR15. Amazon needs to remove NRAtv.com from their services, sites and offerings immediately. The NRA has long ignored its role in promoting gun violence and betrayed the names of good and responsible gun owners. It’s time to hold it, and its partners, accountable. The NRA represents millions of gun owners BUT nowhere near all or a majority of U.S. gun owners. In fact, less than 10 percent of gun owners belong to the NRA. We need to include gun owners in this fight - responsible people who don't feel that the NRA speaks for them - so let's keep this fight focused. The NRA is a group that's rotten to the core and a company like Amazon should not be spreading its message. Not anymore. We must remember to respect the First Amendment above all else. If NRA members want to watch NRA TV, they can find it without Amazon's promotion. There is no place in your home for brands that earn money through the NRA. Sign this petition, then flood Amazon's Legal Department with calls at 206-266-4064. We already shook up their PR Department and got their long-running media hotline to temporarily shut down (206-266-7180), although it’s still worth a try during business hours, since they’ll likely put it back up again at some point.

Tell Amazon.com To Permanently Ban The Sale Of Whale, Dolphin, and Porpoise Meat

In just a few weeks in Taiji, Japan, I have witnessed unimaginable cruelty and bloodshed. The film The Cove is horrifying, and even though I’ve been here before, I can never fully prepare for what I am witnessing: the slaughter and mutilation of hundreds of dolphins. On February 22, Amazon.com responded to consumer pressure and removed dolphin, porpoise, and whale meat from their online store after the Environmental Investigation Agency and Humane Society International exposed them for selling whale bacon, whale jerky, canned whale meat, and more than 100 other products. But they have yet to adopt a clear policy that Amazon.com will never sell these items.Quietly pulling those products from their site is not enough. It’s time for Amazon.com to put a permanent ban on whale, dolphin, and porpoise meat in place.I know that not everyone can come to Japan to join me to speak out for dolphins and whales, but together we can convince Amazon to permanently stop selling all whale, dolphin, and porpoise products. If Amazon--the largest online retailer in the world--were to adopt a policy like this, it would send a clear message to the world.Thank you for your support. Many people in Japan are against this massacre, too, and we all appreciate your help in signing and sharing this petition.

Remove suicide shirts from Amazon

Amazon is currently selling t-shirts that mock suicide. Thousands die every year because of this preventable public health crisis. Suicide destroys lives, families, and societies. It is not a punch line. As a suicide attempt survivor, I call on Amazon to do the right thing and remove these products. I will boycott Amazon until this happens, and they apologize for the harm done. I hope you join me.

Stop selling serial killer Robert Pickton's book!

In honour of all the families who were affected by the horrible crimes of this predator, who were denied agency in his "trial" and who are still going through their healing processes, Amazon needs to refuse to sell "Pickton: In His Own Words" on its website. We urge Amazon to consider the implications of this book's sale, to respect the families of the victims of serial killer Robert Pickton and to remove his book from Amazon.com.

Amazon CEO remove 'Slicey The Pig' toy. Animals are not objects but sentient beings.

PETITION UPDATE. Amazon is not global respectable retailer. This product is offensive and shows a lack of respect for animals and that Amazon supports and promotes animal cruelty. THE CEO Jeff Bezos has now twice refused to remove the product from from Amazon despite this petition.  'Slicey The Pig' sends out a wrong message that animals are objects and have no desires to live and are here for human use as products. Slicey The Pig thing is in profoundly bad taste as well seriously tainting the image of Amazon as a "respectable" retailer, just like selling steel-jaw leg hold traps. What are you thinking Amazon? This shows lack of respect. Animal need our respect\love and are not here for our gratification to inflict suffering and pain. This product teaches children and adults alike that it is acceptable to accept animal suffering. Products like these only promote distaste and teaches that we are not compassionate and sustainable people when it comes to animals. Please sign this petition to show that animals are not products. This product shows the extent of their brutality\victimization to the extent they are not victims. It shows they don’t have moral sentient value and they don’t matter. This product shows that animals are here for human benefit and that they are commodities like TV sets, phones etc. Animals appear different from us but at the end of the day this does not make them any less than us as we all bleed and suffer and fear. If this was a human depicted it would at once show a lack of respect hence this product is speciest. The Amazon CEO has refused to remove these disgusting product from it's site. After emailing him twice their executive relations team have not given any reason whatsoever ever other than its will remain on the site. A justification was asked twice but no response and they have decided not to pursue this any further while they clearly know they are promoting animal abuse. Please feel free to review the products at below UK SITEhttps://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=slicey+the+pig&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aslicey+the+pig INTERNATIONALhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_10/144-6946967-7523526?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=slicey+the+pig&sprefix=slicey+the%2Caps%2C303&crid=14VS2V67UIXE1 Also feel free to drop Jeff polite correspondence.

Save Teen Wolf!

Since it’s debut in 2011, Teen Wolf has been a highly successful show with good quality, well thought out plot lines and amazing characters. The lovable and relatable characters and brilliantly wicked villains soon found their way into the hearts of millions of viewers while the incredible, gripping story lines ensured that the show kept us hooked with every episode. The show has inspired us, made us laugh, cry, rejoice and wonder. Since 2011, the show has garnered a huge fanbase that come together on online forums to discuss the characters, plots and the fascinating mythology of the show. For the last five years, Teen Wolf has succeeded in keeping us enthralled, and at the end of every season, we are always desperate for more. We were therefore very excited when the news came that a season 7 was being considered. However MTV has recently decided to cancel Teen Wolf after the upcoming sixth season. The reason for this decision was due to MTV’s desire to move away from scripted shows and focus more on reality TV. The news was unexpected, as the TV show has always been very successful, with an average of 1.5 million live viewers and 8 million online viewers. It came as a massive blow to fans, not just because they were faced with having to say goodbye to their favourite characters, but because the show was still going strong and was full of life, with many more stories to tell. We therefore ask Netflix to consider saving Teen Wolf. We choose Netflix because it is one of the biggest media streaming services in the world and is therefore accessible to millions of fans worldwide who would be able to carry on watching the story lines of their favourite characters play out.

Stop charging international shipping rates to the US Virgin Islands. It's a US territory.

We all need to contact our elected officials for our states no matter who they are as well as Congresswomen Plaskett and start the protest against UPS charging such exorbitant rates for shipping the USVI...this is not fair. The international rates are so over the top that no one can afford to send anything through them. 30lb package will be $395 to ship...are you kidding me? The contents wasn't even $150. I know we have a lot going on after Hurricane Irma and many of us will have to find different ways of shipping because we need to get things there now but just think about it...if we can get things to our families, it can save resources for those who don't have families. UPS may be national and international but we have a voice and we need to use it...let's help make this change for our beautiful Virgin Islands! We are stronger together! #ViStrong #Rebirth #Resilient

We the Petitioners respectfully ask Amazon to make a responsible ethical decision and stop selling animal fur and animal body parts.

The fur industry – is a disgraceful global business where animals live in inexcusable, unforgivable conditions, they are tortured, electrocuted through the anus, gassed, bludgeoned, strangled, their throats cut or worse.

Amazon.com: Please start accepting the Ethereum cryptocurrency (Ether) for payments!

Like many online retailers, Amazon.com currently only allows us to use existing fiat currencies for payments. This is bad both for consumers (you and I) and for Amazon.com for a number of reasons described below. To fix these issues, Amazon.com should lead e-commerce merchants by embracing the use of the Ethereum (https://www.ethereum.org/) crypto-currency for payments! Ethereum is better for consumers and Amazon.com because.... Lower fees. Amazon.com doesn't charge an extra processing fee, but with credit/debit card fees ranging up to 3.5%, they certainly have those fees baked into costs. Since Ethereum is decentralized and doesn't require a bank or government to process transactions, there are no middle man fees. This results in savings for both Amazon.com and consumers! MUCH more secure. Credit cards are notoriously insecure. With one card-issuing bank keeping track of all transactions, there's a single point of failure for a  hacker to attack and steal your information and money. With Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies, that transaction record is distributed between millions of computer systems. Even if one is hacked, the other records are still there (and end up overwriting the hacked version), making transactions MUCH more secure and virtually eliminating charge-backs. Consumers control their money. Why trust a 3rd party to keep track of your transactions when you don't have to? While some fiat currencies are stable and you may trust your bank or government to control those, others are not. In many countries consumers must convert their local currency to another (incurring additional fees, losses due to exchange rates, etc). Ethereum is easy to access and hold onto, and works the same (and at the same value) everywhere. And the consumer stays in control of their money. Smarter transactions. While standard fiat currencies only convey a transfer of value, Ethereum allows for smart contracts, ensuring consumers receive the value that's paid for. Credit card processes like pre-authorizing a card and only settling that transaction when the product is shipped is messy. With Ethereum a transaction can have smart terms to only complete after the product is shipped, or if the product fits, or any other number of possibilities.  Privacy included. Current e-commerce fiat currency payment methods require the collection of consumer information to help fight fraudulent transactions. With Ethereum, transactions can not be faked or reversed, so there's no need for personal consumer information to complete the transaction. Why Ethereum vs other cryptocurrencies? Ethereum has built-in support for smart contracts (#4 above), increased privacy, faster growth in usage and value, and faster transactions vs Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It's the right choice. Amazon.com: I love shopping on your site. You're consistently focused on a great user experience and service for your customers. Please continue that focus and let us start using Ethereum for payments to benefit everyone involved!
