Justice for the Murder of Rayshard Brooks
Rayshard Brooks, SAY HIS NAME. An unarmed, 27 year old black man who was murdered after complaints of him sleeping in HIS vehicle in the Wendy’s Parking lot. Due to these complaints, 3 officers showed up to “deal” with Brooks. After struggling with the officers, Brooks began to run for his life, when he was shot in the back more than once. Later taken to the hospital, Brooks passed away. Struggling with police is NOT punishable by death. Grabbing a taser in order to stop from being tased is NOT punishable by death. Running away from the police unarmed, and on foot is NOT punishable by death. So for this, we need to SAY HIS NAME. Keep spreading awareness, keep protesting, keep fighting. JUSTICE FOR RAYSHARD BROOKS

Tell Gray Television to grant a co-copyright to help me fight YouTube and Facebook.
My beautiful daughter Alison, a journalist for WDBJ7 in Roanoke, VA was murdered on live television in 2015. For years now, I have been fighting Google to remove the video of her murder from YouTube. Google, along with Facebook and Instagram are protected from any liability thanks to a law called Section 230 for which the only exception is for copyright violation. I appeared on 60 Minutes on January 3rd and described how my life has been affected by Google's ongoing injurious practice. As I said in my interview, Google's original motto was "Don't be evil". Now, they are the personification of just that. Equally as immoral is Gray Television, a media conglomerate with major network affiliates across the country. In late 2015 Gray purchased WDBJ and now owns the copyright to that infamous video. My legal team at Georgetown University Law has asked Gray repeatedly for co-copyright use that would enable us to sue Google for damages. A co-copyright agreement would in no way subject Gray to any legal liability. We cannot legally compelled them, only ask that they do the right thing. Until 230 is repealed, it's our only recourse to hold Google accountable. Sadly, Gray repeatedly either refuses or ignores our pleas to grant this request, cynically offering only a worthless usage license--useful only if we wanted to re-broadcast Alison's murder. As pernicious as Google and Facebook are, Gray is worse. I seek your help and ask that you beseech Gray to do the decent thing and provide me the means to bring a modicum of justice to these sociopaths who endanger lives and democracy while monetizing murder videos. Thanks for your help! Andy Parker

China: Release the 1 Million Uyghurs Detained in Nazi-Style Concentration Camps
China: Release The 1 Million Uyghur Detainees Held Illegally In Nazi-Style Concentration Camps By Torchlight Uyghur Group (Mesheluyghur@gmail.com) www.facebook.com/torchuyghur/ https://twitter.com/torch_uyghur http://blog.freedomsherald.org/ This Petition Is Also Available In The Following Languages: Turkish (Turkçe), German (Deutsch), Japanese (日本語), Chinese (中文), Traditional Chinese (繁体字), French (Français), Arabic (عربى), Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە), Slawyan (Kiril), Russian(Pусский) January 20th, 2018 Many media organizations around the world have recently reported that a large portion of the Uyghur population is being detained either in jails or in so-called “re-education camps” (http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ while their children are being kept in countless orphanages in the East Turkestan. Recently, we have learned from official sources inside East Turkestan that the number of the Uyghurs currently being held in these Nazi-style political “re-education” concentration camps is more than 800,000. That is a number known officially inside East Turkestan, but all the unofficial numbers we obtained from various sources exceed one million. According to the 2010 Chinese census, the Uyghur population in East Turkestan was 10,000,370 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xinjiang This means that about 10% of the current Uyghur population is locked up. The conditions of the concentration camps are horrific because of the fact that such a large number of Uyghurs are locked up in relatively small and crowded spaces. We were told by several people who fled China recently that people even cannot lie down during the night with their backs on the floor; instead, they have to sleep sideways with all the adjacent bodies touching one another. We have also learned from some Uyghurs who recently lost their close relatives in the concentration camps that a significant number of Uyghurs are losing their lives in those camps every day. The families of the victims are just receiving their dead bodies from those overcrowded concentration camps. The local authorities are not giving back the bodies of the younger Uyghurs died, instead, just burying them in the nearby empty fields. These are just a few of the many examples of the horrible conditions in these concentration camps. How did those more than one million people end up in jails, concentration camps and orphanages? It is extremely difficult to obtain such information in China, but we have managed to get information on some individual cases from the relatives of those victims’ living outside China (The report titled “Political persecution of the Uyghurs – Brief description of some individual cases” at http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ The Uyghurs are one of the ancient peoples living in the heart of Asia. They have a long and proud history, and a rich culture. Throughout the history, the Uyghurs have been a great contributor to the world peace and prosperity. Due to their geographical location along the famous Silk Road, they have been a major force in the cultural exchange between the East and the West. We strongly believe that the Uyghurs are an indispensable part of the wider international community and will continue such contribution to the world’s ethnic and cultural diversities in the future. Similarly, the Uyghurs will contribute to the world's peace and prosperity, just as they have done in the past. Therefore, the Uyghurs have every right to live in peace with dignity, and to continuously prosper, as any other nations on the surface of our mother Earth. However, in the recent decades, the Chinese government has banned the Uyghur language from its use at all levels of education in East Turkestan, outlawed Uyghur literature (by banning and burning historical and literature books written in the Uyghur language), restricted, criminalized and attempted to eliminate Uyghurs’ religious belief and practice, and has systematically flooded East Turkestan with Han Chinese migrants in the name of “developing the West”, and thereby marginalized the Uyghurs in their own homeland. And now the Chinese government is openly killing the Uyghur people, too, in those Nazi-style Chinese concentration camps by implementing a state-sponsored ethnic cleansing policy. If we don’t get help immediately from the United Nations and from the international community to stop the Chinese government from what they are doing towards the Uyghurs in East Turkestan, the Uyghurs will keep dying and disappearing in large numbers in those Chinese concentration camps (http://www.freedomsherald.org/ET/images/image201801_13.jpg and will soon face an unprecedented threat to their very existence. Therefore, we appeal to all the international communities and human rights organizations not to ignore the Chinese government’s crimes against humanity – the crimes currently being committed against the innocent Uyghur people. We appeal to the United Nations and other international human rights organizations to demand the Chinese government to release those 1 million Uyghurs, and send investigation teams to East Turkestan and find out: ● Where are those jails, concentration camps and orphanages? ● Why and where those one million Uyghurs are being detained? ● What are they eating and where and how are they sleeping? ● What are they doing during the day? ● What are their current health conditions? ● What are the current death rates among the detainees? ● What is happening to the children/siblings/parents of the people held in jails and concentration camps? We, the Uyghurs, are powerless and helpless at the moment. As such, we cannot defend ourselves against the Chinese government’s atrocities and cannot fight this battle for our survival alone. We need the support of the global community. If tens of thousands of people from around the world sign our petition, it may be possible that the United Nations will make a commitment and will act to stop the tragedy that the Uyghur people are facing today. Please join us in our fight to end the appalling atrocities happening in East Turkestan. Please sign and share this petition. Thank you! About the Uyghur People and East Turkestan: East Turkestan is the homeland of the Uyghur people. It has been under the communist China' s occupation since 1949. East Turkestan is located in the Central Asia, and borders China and Mongolia to the east, Russia to the north, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the west, and Tibet to the south. The landmass of East Turkestan is bigger than whole Western Europe. Its colonial name is “Xinjiang”, which means "the new territory" or "the new frontier" in Chinese. China officially designated the East Turkestan a Uyghur autonomous region in 1955, but in reality it has never become a genuine autonomous region. The Chinese government reported the number of the Uyghur population in East Turkestan as 10,000,370 (refer to the 2010 Chinese census), but some Uyghur sources estimate the real population of Uyghurs to be around 20 million.
Live Fact Checking During Political Debates
Live fact checking should run across the screens or should be announced live during the all presidential debates in order to allow transparency and to allow Americans to make informed decisions about who the choose for President. This I believe would solve the following problems: It would restore Americans belief in the political process It would shift the narrative of two party politics from identity politics back to politics of policy It would hold politicians accountable for misinformation It would create a more curious and well informed public In order for this to be executed properly this should be enforced by a non partisan committee such as the Debate commission .
Save rebel tv show
Help us #SaveRebel! Rebel is an ABC freshman drama show based on Erin Brockovich’s life, created by Krista Vernoff and starring Katey Sagal. The series combines drama with elements of comedy and deconstructs sexist and ageist stereotypes along its way. On May 14, 2021, one day after the shows’s 5th episode aired, ABC announced that Rebel will not be back for a second season. We believe the decision to cancel the show was rash! The series was not given enough time to establish itself and to build an audience! The show deserves a second season! If you agree please sign the petition and spread the word!
ESPN : Honor Kendrick Castillo, Joshua Jones and Brendan Bialy at the 2022 ESPY Awards.
On May 7th 2019, the Highlands Ranch, Colorado community was forever changed when a shooting occurred at the Highlands Ranch STEM School. 8 students were hurt and 1 was killed. During the shooting, Kendrick Castillo, Brendan Bialy and Joshua Jones ran at the shooter and tackled him, giving their classmates time to take cover and escape. Kendrick Castillo gave the ultimate sacrifice of his own life in the process. We, as a Highlands Ranch community, believe that these three brave heroes are deserving of the 2022 Arthur Ashe Courage Award. This award is given out yearly at the ESPYs through ESPN and is given to individuals or a group that "stand up for their beliefs in the face of adversity," and that is exactly what Kendrick, Joshua and Brendan did. We have a chance right now to make a change, stop these mass shootings and make these three true heroes so well known that nobody will be able to recall the name of the gunman. Please sign this petition.
Ask Metallica to be the musical act for the halftime of Super Bowl 55
For nearly 38 years Metallica has broken down walls and led from the front in the heavy metal/hard rock genre. They are the undisputed kings of heavy metal and responsible for bringing the art form into the homes of millions around the world. Nobody sought them out, they forced their way in and continue to be an unstoppable monster of sound and energy to this day. Their songs are anthems in NFL and major sports stadiums across the country. They've won Grammy's, they've headlined every festival around the globe from Glastonbury to Lollapalooza. They've sold over 115 million records worldwide and have a consecutive streak of #1 chart debuting albums that spans their last six full length releases. They were first ballot Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Quite frankly, there's nothing they haven't done or accomplished which is why it is with zero trepidation that I make the bold statement that it is absolutely stupefying that these American pioneers of rock have not been involved with a Super Bowl halftime to date and it is time for that to change. "The Night Before" for Super Bowl 50 was great, but now it's time to headline halftime and it needs to happen at Super Bowl 55! It's time. It's time for the sugar-pop and candy artists to step aside in favor of real American metal. It's time to put a band (you know, one that actually plays instruments and does it well) on the field and let them plug in and do their thing. We don't need pop-tarts on mechanical tigers giving us flash and no substance, we need amps and drums cranked up and played with power and emotion. We don't need wannabe "rockers" ripping of their shirts. It's time. Give America what it wants and needs. Metallica will not let you down. I guarantee it.
