Ban elephant ivory and tusks from being imported into the U.S.
The Trump administration wants to start issuing permits for elephant trophy hunting. I have been to Africa and have seen first hand the impact of hunting elephants for ivory. Dead elephant carcasses left to rot with only the tusks taken is a sight no one should have to endure. A gross waste of life and resources for the environment and community. I cannot stand silent as this change is made. Elephants are a majestic animal and are a protected species. To condone killing this animal for sport and importing the ivory and tusks into the US is a legacy I would prefer we not leave. Please help me in sending a message that we will not sit idly by as these decisions are made. We will be proactive and use our voices to make it known we do not condone this and do not want a reversal of a ban that was put in place to protect this species.
We want to see Trump's tax returns.
President Trump calls reports of his alleged compromising ties to Russian businesses and government officials, “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.” He can prove it by releasing his tax returns. Who does our president owe money to? Can they use his debt to manipulate our Commander-in-Chief? Is he receiving income from foreign sources to his businesses from which he has yet to divest? The answers are easy to discover if he releases his tax returns. In a press conference, Trump told the assembled reporters, “The only people who seem to care about my tax returns are you people here.” Our country does care. In fact, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll, 74% of Americans (including 53% of Republicans) want him to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS. Every major presidential candidate for the past 40 years has voluntarily released their tax returns. President Nixon even released his tax returns while under audit. Why does President Trump refuse to release his taxes if he has nothing to hide? Please sign and SHARE this petition calling on President Trump to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS NOW.
World leaders: Please act to save our lives in Aleppo
I am one of the very last doctors serving the remaining 300,000 citizens of eastern Aleppo. Atrocities are being committed every day. The Syrian regime and Russian aircraft are systematically targeting civilians and hospitals across the city. We have seen no real effort from President Trump, Chancellor Merkel or Prime Minister May to prevent the criminal attacks against civilians and our hospitals. That is why I've started this petition. World leaders are not listening to my voice alone. Will you join me and make a call so loud they can’t ignore us? For five years, we have borne witness as countless patients, friends and colleagues suffered violent, tormented deaths. For five years, the world has stood by and remarked how ‘complicated’ Syria is, while doing little to protect us. Last month there were 42 attacks on medical facilities in Syria, 15 of which were hospitals in which my colleagues and I work. At this rate, our medical services in Aleppo could be completely destroyed in a month, leaving 300,000 people to die. What pains me and my fellow doctors the most is choosing who will live and who will die. Young children are sometimes brought into our emergency rooms so badly injured that we have to prioritise those with better chances, or simply don’t have the equipment to help them. A few weeks ago, four newborn babies gasping for air suffocated to death after a blast cut the oxygen supply to their incubators. Their lives ended before they had really begun. Despite the horror, we choose to be here. We took a pledge to help those in need. We have a duty to remain and help. All we ask now is for Trump, Merkel, May and other world leaders to do their duty, too. We do not need their tears or sympathy or even prayers, we need them to act. We need them to prove that they are the friends of Syrians. Please join us in our call. Ask world leaders to save the people of Aleppo.
Kudüs Filistin’in başkentidir ve öyle kalmalı
Donald Trump’ın kısa süre içinde Kudüs’ü İsrail’in başkenti olarak tanıması bekleniyor. İsrail’in 1967’de doğu Kudüs’ü işgali ve sonrasında işgal ettiği bölge Birleşmiş Milletler tarafından yasa dışı olarak değerlendiriliyor. Bu kararın alınmasını engellemek için kampanyamızı imzalayarak destek olun.
Save Net Neutrality!
The internet has always been a place for everyone to have the ability to connect to each other and share ideas. A place where every site is treated equally with equal bandwidth for people to connect to it. However, the US Government wants to actually limit net neutrality, claiming that not all sites are equal on the internet, and therefore not all needing to have equal bandwidth from Internet Service Providers. This would allow ISPs to only supply certain websites on their service and essentially partition the web. Imagine needing to pay one company to be able to connect to social media, and another company to watch YouTube. On top of that small websites would almost never get supported and therefore get no attention, making it harder for people to share their ideas or views on the world. If this were allowed to happen this would kill free speech on the web since only big companies would get most of the internet traffic and any websites supporting views that maybe ISPs don’t agree with wouldn’t get any support to be connected to anymore.
Solicitud ante la ONU para aprobar la Injerencia Humanitaria en Venezuela
Solicitud ante la ONU para aprobar la Injerencia Humanitaria en Venezuela por el Movimiento Resistencia Venezolana. Estimados ciudadanos, la mediación y las vías democráticas se han agotado en la lucha por un cambio de gobierno en Venezuela. La situación es grave, la violación a los derechos humanos más elementales no merma y a diario mueren personas de hambre por la escasez y el alto costo de la cesta básica alimentaria, además la falta de insumos médicos, cada día está cobrando más vidas ya que se hace imposible tener acceso a medicamentos y servicios clínicos/hospitalarios de calidad. Esta batalla que estamos librando no es contra ciudadanos comunes, pues es bien sabido que nuestros "dirigentes" están estrechamente relacionados al narcotráfico, con dinero mal habido han sabido comprar conciencias, han regalado cargos políticos y militares a conveniencia blindando así su permanencia en el poder. Es de conocimiento público que los pasaportes diplomáticos, aviones y recursos del estado son usados por los esbirros del gobierno a su antojo para seguir implantando su narco terror en nuestro país mientras que el ciudadano de a pie padece la peor crisis humanitaria y política en su historia. Las irregularidades a las que se exponen los venezolanos sobrepasan cualquier camino democrático que se pueda plantear. Por las razones expuestas anteriormente, y en relación a lo expresado por Donald Trump, presidente de los Estados Unidos, sobre la posibilidad de una intervención humanitaria en Venezuela, respaldada por una mayoría importante de países hermanos, los representantes del Movimiento Resistencia Venezolana, creemos en que ésta sería la única opción viable para extraer definitivamente la cúpula de narcos que mantiene sometido al país. Con todo nuestro debido respeto, MOVIMIENTO RESISTENCIA VENEZOLANA EQUILIBRIO NACIONAL POR VENEZUELA Dios con nosotros, cúmplase! --------------------------------------------- ENGLISH VERSION Requested: by the people, for the people of Venezuela – “RESISTENCIA VENEZOLANA” To All Citizens, All mediations and all democratic courses of action have been used towards the constant fight for a change in Venezuela’s government, to no avail. The current situation in the country is severe and serious. Essential human rights have been violated and it does not sojourn. People of Venezuela die daily due to hunger and to the extreme high costs of basic food needs. Furthermore, there is a major shortage of medical supplies and access to them and to medical services, clinics and hospitals of quality which adds to the death tolls in the country. This ‘battle’ that we keep fighting is not against civilians but against our government “leaders” whom are well known to be involved in drug trafficking, money laundering, and using same to brain wash other politicians and citizens; they create for them military and political ranks with the only purpose of securing their permanency in office. It is publicly known that diplomatic passports, planes and any all other state resources are used to the advantage of this malicious government and to continue causing fear in our country while Venezuelan citizens suffer from the worst humanitarian and political crisis in its history. The daily challenges to which the ‘people’ of Venezuela are exposed to surpass any democratic ideal. For the above mentioned, and in relation to what has been voiced by POTUS Mr Donald Trump regarding possible humanitarian intervention of the United States in Venezuela, supported by vast majority of fellow countries, we, “Resistencia Venezolana”, believe and support that this would be the only viable option to finally destroy this nasty government to which Venezuelans have been prisoners of. With all our respects, “Resistencia Venezolana” “Equilibrio Nacional”
Last summer, the Trump administration separated nearly 3,000 children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border when they instituted a new “zero tolerance” policy. A San Diego judge ordered the administration to #ReuniteEveryChild, however lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union told a federal judge that the Trump administration has taken nearly 1,000 migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border since the judge ordered the end to the administration’s family separation policy! Our federal government is inflicting harm and trauma upon these children through this mistreatment. Experts in child welfare have been clear, these separations are traumatic and have lifelong consequences for the children and their families. At Define American, we are asking everyone, especially journalists, to demand a plan from the administration to immediately #ReuniteEveryChild with their parents on U.S. soil. Will you sign on and demand that the Trump Administration must immediately #ReuniteEveryChild?
Clemency for Craig Cesal - Serving Life Without Parole for Marijuana
Seventeen years ago, my dad, Craig Cesal, was arrested on a marijuana conspiracy case because he owned a trucking repair business. He would repair trucks that had been leased and used to smuggle pot. The trucks would be trashed after the marijuana was stripped from the secret compartments, and although it was obvious these trucks were being used to smuggle pot, my dad didn't think it was his business to report it. He had no criminal history whatsoever, but today, he is serving a life sentence without parole because he didn't take a plea bargain, went to trial, and was therefore held responsible for everything the kingpin and smugglers had done. They cut deals, testified against him and they are all free today. Marijuana is now legal for recreational use in nine states. And politicians like John Boehner are joining marijuana investment firms and plan to make millions of dollars while my dad rots in prison. His only chance at freedom is if President Trump commutes his sentence. My dad was a single, divorced, dad, and would tell my brother and I that if we got straight A's at school, we would go on a special trip, like Washington DC or Disneyland. It always worked. He would also make us wear T-shirts that said “I got straight A's and came to Disneyland.” He would also make us take photos with all the Disney characters. He loved to show everyone the photos of us with Disney characters when we got home. He was the best dad in the world and I don't see how his incarceration is serving any good purpose for our society. If President Trump does not commute my father's sentence, he will likely die in prison, especially since he has diabetes and has had medical complications and requirements that are not being properly met. Please sign my petition so I can be with my father. We want to make up for the time we have missed out on. You will end so much suffering if this petition succeeds in bringing him home. Lauren Cesal
Save North Atlantic Right Whales from Seismic Airgun Blasting
President Trump stands poised to green-light new seismic airgun blasting and offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean — and the fate of one of the world’s most critically endangered whales hangs in the balance. The dynamite-like blasts of seismic airguns — used to search for oil and gas deposits — hinder North Atlantic right whales’ ability to find food, ward off sickness and keep track of their babies. Their existence is already hanging by a thread. No calves are known to have been born during this year’s calving season, and in the past year, at least 17 whales have been found dead – the most since scientists started reporting on mortality rates. Only about 100 breeding females remain alive. With fewer than 450 North Atlantic right whales remaining, the threat of seismic airgun blasting and offshore drilling could tip the population toward extinction. During a seismic survey, ships may tow dozens of seismic airguns behind them, firing intense loud blasts of air every 10 to 12 seconds, up to 24 hours a day for weeks to months at-a-time. The noise can travel thousands of miles underwater, indiscriminately impacting ocean animals in its path. We refuse to stand by while the federal government considers allowing this unnecessary harm. Oceana’s grassroots campaigners have already helped mobilize over 42,000 businesses and 500,000 fishing families from Florida to Maine in strong opposition of seismic airgun blasting and offshore drilling off the U.S. East Coast. We’ve successfully kept seismic airgun blasting and offshore drilling out of Atlantic waters for years: add your name now to help us do it again. The Trump Administration won’t back down easily. It’s going to take tireless efforts from Oceana organizers, campaigners and scientists from across the country to protect whales, dolphins and other marine life from seismic airgun blasting and offshore drilling. Our fight is far from over, and we need support from supporters like you. Add your name now to tell President Trump NO to seismic airgun blasting and offshore oil drilling.
