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.

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”

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.
