Free Nazanin Ratcliffe

My wife Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 37 year old charity worker, was on holiday visiting her family in Iran. She was at the airport returning to the UK on the 3rd April when she was detained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. She has been transferred to an unknown location in Kerman Province, 1,000 kilometres south of Tehran, and is being held in solitary confinement. Gabriella Ratcliffe our 22 month old daughter (who has British citizenship only) has had her British passport confiscated, and is stranded in Iran with her grandparents. Nazanin has not been allowed to access a lawyer or her daughter. She has not been able to call out of the country to speak to me, her British husband, and the Red Cross have not been able to make contact. There have been no charges. Nazanin has informed her family that she has been required to sign a confession under duress, its content unknown. Her family have been informed that the investigation relates to an issue of ‘national security’. It is hard to understand how a young mother and her small child on holiday could be considered an issue of national security. She has been to Iran to visit her family regularly since making Britain her home. Nazanin currently works as a project manager for the Thomson-Reuters Foundation; which delivers charitable projects around the world. It does not work in Iran. Nazanin has now been in solitary confinement for over 30 days. Please help bring my wife and daughter home by signing my petition calling on our Prime Minister Theresa May to use her power and intervene.

Reconsider Andrew and Daniel Frankish's prison sentences for animal cruelty charges

With the recent media coverage regarding Andrew and Daniel Frankish and their horrendous maltreatment of their family pet bulldog "Baby", their sentencing of 21 weeks suspended for two years, and a tagged curfew for six months has riled a lot of people as inadequate punishment for such disgusting and cruel actions. The poor animal was repeatedly thrown down flights of stairs, "pile driven" into the ground from head height, swung around, and stamped all over. "Baby" was put to sleep three months later after losing the use of her hind legs. This was all captured on camera, and it is clear it was for their sick enjoyment. We believe this sentence should be reconsidered and the punishment should be greater for such horrendous treatment of a defenceless animal. You can find the full story and video footage at the below link. https://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/655391/thugs-throw-dog-down-stairs-harrowing-footage-graphic-video The GoFundMe page is now CLOSED! Thank you to all donors for your generosity, all funds will be sent to the RSPCA Middlesbrough and South Tees branch once all payments have cleared - updates will be posted through this petition page regarding that as it happens, and via Twitter (@scarfey1991)! http://www.gofundme.com/babythebulldog

Pardon all of the estimated 49,000 men who, like Alan Turing, were convicted of consenting same-sex relations under the British "gross indecency" law (only repealed in 2003), and also all the other men convicted under other UK anti-gay laws.

Each of these 49,000 men deserves the justice and acknowledgment from the British government that this intolerant law brought not only unwarranted shame, but horrific physical and mental damage and lost years of wrongful imprisonment to these men. Alan Turing was pardoned in 2013, but the other estimated 49,000 men deserve the same.

Allow the NHS to give Abi Longfellow her life-saving medicine

Our daughter, twelve-year-old Abi, has a rare kidney disease that could kill her in five years. Under lock and key in the hospital where she is treated is the medicine that could save her life. But thanks to a cruel loophole, doctors are forbidden from giving it to our daughter. That’s why we’ve started a campaign with the Sunday People. Abi’s one-in-a-million illness is too rare to be covered by NHS England’s drug funding policy but not rare enough to unlock cash for exceptional cases.And the manufacturer Alexion Pharmaceuticals has refused to drop the eye-watering £136,000-a-year price, ­making it impossible for us to buy the drug privately. Knowing that the drug sits in the hospital but Abi can’t have it is horrendous. In a couple years’ time it will be as cheap as a packet of paracetamol but it will be too late for Abi. We know the drug is there that could help Abi and it is used in other countries. It’s torture to know that her life could be saved but we can’t afford to save it. We’re calling on Alexion and the UK Government to give Abi’s life a chance. Abi even wrote a heartfelt letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, saying: "Why is that fair when other children with other rare kidney diseases like me are receiving it? "I’m a 12-year old English girl and if I lived in Ireland, Europe, America, Canada etc I would get the medicine without hesitation. "So I want to know why am I being disadvantaged in my own country?" We call upon David Cameron and the government to reconsider funding Abi’s life-saving treatment on the NHS. Read the full story here and sign our petition here.

Freiheit für Nazanin Ratcliffe

Meine Frau Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe ist 37 Jahre alt und arbeitet für eine gemeinnützige Stiftung. Vor Kurzem war sie zu Besuch bei ihrer Familie im Iran. Sie war gerade am Flughafen auf dem Weg zurück nach Großbritannien, als sie am 3. April von einem Offizier der iranischen Revolutionsgarde verhaftet wurde. Man brachte sie an einen geheimen Ort in der Provinz Kerman, 1.000 Kilometer südlich von Teheran. Dort sitzt sie seitdem in Isolationshaft. Unserer 22 Monate alten Tochter Gabriella Ratcliffe (die nur die britische Staatsbürgerschaft hat) wurde der britische Reisepass abgenommen. Sie ist jetzt bei ihren Großeltern im Iran.Nazanin wird der Kontakt zu einem Anwalt oder ihrer Tochter verweigert. Auch mit mir, ihrem Ehemann, darf sie seit ihrer Inhaftierung nicht sprechen. Auch dem Roten Kreuz gelang die Kontaktaufnahme bisher nicht.Dabei gibt es keine konkreten Anklagepunkte. Nazanin hat ihre Familie darüber informiert, dass sie gezwungen wurde, ein Geständnis zu unterzeichnen, dessen Inhalt ihr unbekannt war. Der Familie wiederum wurde mitgeteilt, es handele sich bei den Ermittlungen um eine Angelegenheit, die die "nationale Sicherheit" betreffe. Es ist kaum zu verstehen, wie eine junge Mutter und ihr kleines Kind im Urlaub ein Risiko für die nationale Sicherheit sein können. Seit Großbritannien ihre neue Heimat geworden ist, besucht sie regelmäßig ihre Familie im Iran. Nazanin arbeitet derzeit als Projektmanagerin für die Thomson-Reuters-Stiftung, welche gemeinnützige Projekte überall auf der Welt vorantreibt. Im Iran ist die Stiftung nicht aktiv. Nazanin ist jetzt schon seit über 30 Tagen in Einzelhaft.  Bitte helfen Sie mir, meine Tochter und meine Frau wieder nach Hause zu bringen. Unterzeichen Sie meine Petition an Premierminister David Cameron und fordern Sie ihn mit mir auf, seine Macht zu nutzen und hier einzuschreiten.

Please look at this petition regarding DANIELLE GILL and Send her to prison.

As a community we would like the judge and the courts to look case against danille gill. She should off been sent to jail. Please sign the petition if you think so to. A female babysitter has avoided a prison sentence after she pleaded guilty to a string of child abuse charges against four young children. Danielle Gill of Wetherby, Leeds appeared in court room 7 at Leeds Crown Court to face sentencing after admitting child cruelty and child neglect charges. The court was told that Gill sadistically tormented the four children who were aged just 1, 3, 4 & 6 years old. The abuse included sexual, physical and mental abuse whilst she was left in charge to babysit the children. The sexual assault charges relate to the abuse of the one-year-old child The prosecution explained that Gill would spit and shout at the children. Punish them with cold baths and give them alcohol. Gill effectively walked free from court with a one year suspended sentence. The oldest child is currently undergoing counselling as a direct result of the abuse. In a psychiatric evaluation as part of pre-sentence reports, Gill was deemed at a significantly high risk to young children. Gill has shown no remorse for her actions. The case has now finally reached its conclusion after a two year process. Despite being banned from working with children, or being in unsupervised access to children, Gill who has no children of her own uses Facebook to join local toddler and baby groups advertising as a babysitter She was told she must register as a sex offender with immediate effect.

Stop Article 50 from being invoked. Last and ONLY option to stop Brexit.

Can the UK government still legally disregard the Brexit vote? The answer is YES. You cannot change the outcome of the referendum or recast your vote but you CAN stop Brexit from being implemented. The actual process of leaving the EU can only happen by invoking Article 50. And YOU can stop it from being invoked. We have ONE #lastchance2remain Here's how. Sign the petition now. It takes 30 seconds to sign. Make this the most significant 30 seconds of your life. How and what will this petition achieve when we already have a referendum? Despite the referendum's outcome, legally, the most important thing that matters NOW is when and whether the government invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. This is the significant “red button”. Once Article 50 is invoked then Brexit does become a matter of reality AND law. This process is IRREVERSIBLE and irrevocable once it starts. BUT invoking the Article 50 is NOT legally mandatory as an outcome of the referendum.  The 2011 referendum on electoral reform did have an obligation on the government to legislate in the event of a “yes” vote (the vote was “no” so this did not matter). But NO SUCH provision was included in the EU referendum legislation. However, READ THIS - if you do not force a parliamentary debate by signing this petition the government will have to act on the referendum out of political pressure as that's what the 52% voted. So basically, what happens between NOW and Article 50 notification to EU will be driven by politics and YOUR VOICE.  ITS A VERY SMALL WINDOW. 1. Sign the petition NOW . You still have a choice. Exercise it. Costs nothing. 2. Don't stop there. Help it reach 100,000 signatures by sharing on social networks. Make sure you are heard. 3. The Petition will then automatically enter the parliamentary debate despite referendums outcome. 4. We get a chance to make the decision right. It's not fool proof (pun unintended) but it's worth a shot. Sign this petition to STOP Article 50 being invoked. SIGN NOW because time is not on our side. We have only one last window left to reverse this horrendous, historic, epic screw up.

CLOSE THE BRITISH BORDERS.

We need to close our borders. We can't just let anyone in any more, it's too risky. What happened to Paris will happen to the UK. I feel for the refugees profusely, how ever, we have no idea what their intentions are. I'm sure that France didn't let the attackers into Paris knowing they were going to attack. They probably thought they were just refugees, the same refugees we're letting into our country and look what happened. Close the borders.  All money of which would have gone towards benefits and income support for refugees to go towards Syrian Charities.
