Tutuklanan HDP’li Milletvekilleri Serbest Bırakılsın!

Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’nin yurttaşıyım. Bu ülkede doğan her yurttaş gibi seçme ve seçilme hakkına sahibim. Oy verdiğim siyasi partinin eş genel başkanları ve milletvekilleri bugün bütün demokratik değerler çiğnenerek gözaltına alındılar. Gözaltına alınan eş genel başkanlarımız Selahattin Demirtaş ve Figen Yüksekdağ ile birlikte Seçilmiş milletvekillerimiz  İdris Baluken, Nursel Aydoğan, Ferhat Encü, Mehmet Ali Arslan, Gülser Yıldırım, Abdullah Zeydan ve Leyla Birlik tutuklandılar. Sayın Selahattin Demirtaş ve Sayın Figen Yüksekdağ oy verdiğim siyasi partinin eş genel başkanlarıdır. Şahidim ki Demirtaş’ın ve Yüksekdağ’ın barışı söylemediği, insan ölümlerinin durmasını istemediği tek beyanı yoktur. Selahattin Demirtaş ve Figen Yüksekdağ ile beraber seçilmiş milletvekillerinin tutuklanması kabul edilemez. Dava hukuki ise eğer onları sorgulayan ve tutuklayan mahkemelerin beni ve benim gibi düşünüp HDP’ye oy veren diğer seçmenleri de tutuklaması gerekmektedir. Zira ortada bir suç varsa aynı suçu defalarca işledim ve işlemeye devam edeceğim. 40 yıldır süregelen savaşın barışçıl yöntemlerle çözülmesini istemeye ve söylemeye devam edeceğim. Bu hukuksuzluğu ve yargılama sürecini yakından takip etmenizi ve Türkiye Demokrasisi için HDP’yle dayanışma göstermenizi rica ediyorum I am a citizen of the Turkish Republic. I am, by law, entitled to vote for members of parliament. Mr. Selahattin Demirtaş and Ms.Figen Yüksekdağ, who are the leaders of the political party HDP that I voted for and 7 Nursel Aydogan, Ferhat Encü, Mehmet Ali Arslan, Gülser Yıldırım, Abdullah Zeydan, Leyla Birlik, Idris Baluken have been detained and arrested following operations to forcibly enter their houses on the early hours of the 4th of November. Their doors have been knocked down and their pleas to have their lawyers have been ignored. I sincerely declare HDP as a party that has always stood for peace and both leaders have shown great effort to establish peace and solidarity among ethnic groups in Turkey, Turks and Kurds in particular. I would like to send a massage to the Turkish Government and their law makers and judges here: If promoting peace is a crime than I commit that crime too. I would put my name and signature under any speeches that were delivered in and outside the parliament by the leaders of HDP. I will continue to voice their legacy which is about ending a 40 year old war between Turkish state and Kurdish civilians and their representatives. We urge you to follow this unlawful case closely and show solidarity with HDP which has a crucial role in the democracy that we are trying to protect in Turkey.

Stop Culling of Stray Dogs in Kerala, India.

Dogs are strangled, poisoned and beaten to death every day in Kerala, India!!! It is the most literate state in India and is famous for tourism and welcoming people. There have been a few isolated incidents in the last 1 year, where 2 humans were attacked by strays and they died from wounds. But these incidents have led to mass culling and indiscriminate killing of all stray dogs in the most inhumane way and continues daily. See media links. It is heart wrenching! Dog corpses piled up by the road, paraded by politicians and used as an opportunity to appear on media. This petition is to urge the government to stop this brutal killing of dogs and set up a system which focuses on neutering and getting these animals a home. We care about the human casualties and agree that dangerous dogs need to be destroyed but killing every dog on the street is wrong and needs to stop. Help us get this petition to reach the Kerala government and international animal rights organisations. We need millions of signatures from folks who still has a heart! We want Kerala to be welcoming and famous for tourism, not for animal cruelty like it is today! https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofAnimalsKottayam/  Media Links http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-37687977 http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/political-party-workers-kill-stray-dogs-parade-the-carcasses-in-kerala/story-r3pc3OQzWdKSbFZg3usWLK.html http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Now-gold-coins-for-culling-stray-dogs-in-Kerala/articleshow/55140404.cms http://www.ndtv.com/kerala-news/another-24-dogs-killed-in-keralas-ernakulum-1469678

AraKAN Ağlıyor

Arakanlı Müslümanlar vatanlarında giderek daha ağır yaşam koşullarına itilmekte, Eyalet başkenti Sittwe’ye sokulmamakta, işyerlerine gidememekte, camilerinde ibâdet edememekteler. Haziran ayında yaşananlardan sonraki en önemli şiddet olayları geçen Pazar günü özellikle Minbyar, Mrauk-U, Kyaukphyu ve Myebon kasabalarında patlak verdi. Bini aşkın evin yakıldığı, insanların kitleler hâlinde tehcire zorlanmakta ve binlerce insan öldürülmektedir. Türkiye İlahiyat Fakülteleri Öğrenci Birliği Olarak çözüm önerilerimiz 1. Arakanlılara yapılan sistematik soykırıma biran önce son verilmesi. Yaşama hakkının kutsallığına sayğı duyulmalı. 2.Arakanlılar müslüman oldukları için verilmeyen vatandaşlıkları tekrar verilmeli insan onuruna yakışır bir şekilde muamele edilmeli. 3. İnsan hakları beyannemesinde ki ibadet, eğitim, ticaret ve seyhat özgürlüğüne sayğı gösterilip haklarının iadesi. 4. Arakanlıların maruz kaldığı sistematik katliam, zulüm'den dolayı iadei itibar yapılmalı. 5. Kendisine Nobel Barış ödülü verilen Myanmar lideri Aung San Suu Kyi'den binlerce insanın katili ve faili olmasından ötürü nobel barış ödülünün kendisinden alınması.

نداء من قبل القادة الروحيين السوريين الكاثوليك ضد العقوبات

Italiano - Esperanto - English - Deutsch - Francais - Espanol - Vlaams نداء من قبل القادة الروحيين السوريين الكاثوليك ضد العقوبات   يكفي عقوبات على سورية والسوريين   في عام 2011 قام الاتحاد الأوربي بفرض العقوبات ضد سورية, حيث قدموه على الشكل التالي "عقوبات على شخصيات النظام", حيث فرضوا على سورية حظر نفطي, وجمدت كل أنواع الاستثمارات المالية ومنعت التبادل التجاري بكثير من المواد والمنتجات. هذا المقياس من العقوبات مازال مستمر حتى الآن, حتى ولو في عام 2013 تم إزالة الحظر النفطي, بطريقة لا يمكن تفسيرها, عن المناطق التابعة لسيطرة المعارضة المسلحة والمجموعات الجهادية, والهدف من ذلك هو توفير مردود مالي لما يسموا "القوى الثورية والمعارضة". إن السنوات الخمس للحظر الاقتصادي على سورية قد ساهمت في تدمير المجتمع السوري حيث حكم عليها بالجوع, بالفقر, بالأوبئة, مما سمح بزيادة نشاط المليشيات المتطرفة والإرهابية الذين يستهدفون حتى أوروبا. أضف إلى ذلك 250 ألف شخص ماتوا و ستة ملايين نازح وأربعة ملايين لاجئ.        الوضع في سورية مأساوي. نقص في المواد الغذائية, بطالة عامة, صعوبة في العلاج الصحي, شح وتقنين في مياه الشرب, والكهرباء. وهكذا الحظر أثر أيضاً على السوريين المقيمين في الخارج قبل الحرب والذين كانوا يرسلون المال لذويهم وعائلاتهم التي بقيت حتى الآن في سورية, وأثر حتى على المنظمات الغير الحكومية التي تهتم بمشاريع الدعم, حيث أصبح من الصعب إرسال المال إلى العاملين لديهم في سورية. الشركات, ومراكز توليد الكهرباء, والصرف الصحي والمياه, وأقسام المستشفيات أصبحوا مجبرين على الإغلاق أو وقف العمل  بسبب عدم تمكنهم من الحصول على قطع الغيار أو الحصول على الطاقة اللازمة للتشغيل.  اليوم الشعب السوري يرى أن الحل المرئي (الواضح) لعائلاتهم هو الهروب من بلدهم. لكن, وحتى هذا الحل يواجه صعوبات ليست بقليلة وذلك بسبب الجدل الكبير داخل الاتحاد الأوروبي. لا يمكن أن يكون الهروب هو الحل الوحيد فقط الذي يقترحه المجتمع الدولي على هذه الناس التعساء. لذا نحن نؤيد كل المبادرات الإنسانية والسلمية الذي يقوم به المجتمع الدولي, وخصوصاً مفاوضات جنيف الصعبة, ومع هذا الانتظار وكلنا أمل ورجاء أن تفضي هذه المفاوضات إلى إجابة واضحة, بعد كل هذا العذاب المرير, نطلب أن تتوقف حالاً العقوبات التي تؤثر مباشرة على الحياة اليومية لكل سوري. إن انتظار السلام المنشود, لا يمكن فصله عن القلق الملموس تجاه أولئك اللذين يعانون اليوم بسبب الحصار الاقتصادي الذي ثقله يقع على كاهل الشعب بأكمله.         ليس هذا فقط: فالحديث الإنشائي والأخلاقي عن المهاجرين الذين يهربون من الحرب في سورية يظهر نفاق كبيراً, حيث أنه وفي ذات الوقت يستمر العمل على تجويع ومنع الرعاية الصحية وحرمان مياه الشرب والعمل وانعدام الأمان والكرامة الإنسانية لأولئك اللذين مازالوا في سورية.  لذا, نتوجه إلى برلماني ورؤساء بلديات ومحافظي كل الاتحاد الأوروبي, كي ما يتعرف المواطن الأوروبي (الذي يجهل تماماً) على إثم العقوبات المفروضة على سورية وتصبح في نهاية المطاف موضوع نقاش جاد واتخاذ قرار.   الموقعون: ·         غبطة البطريرك غريغوريوس ثالث لحام – بطريرك أنطاكيا وسائر المشرق لطائفة الملكيين الكاثوليك     ·         غبطة البطريرك أغناطيوس يوسف الثالث يونان – بطريرك أنطاكيا للسريان الكاثوليك ·         سيادة المطران جان جامبارت – رئيس أساقفة حلب للروم الملكيين الكاثوليك ·         سيادة المطران جاك بهنان هندو – رئيس أساقفة نصيبين والحسكة للسريان الكاثوليك ·         سيادة المطران جوزيف طوبجي – رئيس أساقفة حلب للموارنة ·         سيادة المطران بطرس مراياتي – مطران حلب للأرمن الكاثوليك    ·         سيادة المطران جورج أبو خازن – النائب الرسولي لطائفة اللاتين في سورية ·         سيادة المطران هيلاريون كبوشي – رئيس أساقفة القدس السابق للروم الملكيين الكاثوليك ·         الأب بيير باتسيتا بيتزاباللا – الحارس السابق للأراضي المقدسة ·         الأب مطانيوس حداد – اشمندريت الكنيسة الملكية الكاثوليكية وممثل البطريركية لدى الكرسي المقدس - روما ·         الأب جورج مصري -  ممثل كنيسة السريان الكاثوليك لدى الكرسي المقدس ·         الأب فراس لطفي – كاهن فرنسيسكاني ·         راهبات جمعية القديس يوسف في مستشفى "القديس لويس" بحلب ·         أخوية الراهبات الحبيسات في سورية (عزير) ·         راهبات جمعية المساعدة الدائمة – مركز الأولاد المشردين والأيتام في مرمريتا ·         الدكتور نبيل إنطاكي – طبيب في حلب, لدى الأخوية المريمية  http://www.bastasanzioniallasiria.org/

REPLACE ANIMAL TESTING WITH NON-ANIMAL TESTING

If we open the statistics books of animal testing, we will be shocked about the high number of animals sacrificed for nothing. It is a truth that science can not make steps forward without testing and experimenting, but there are so many debates about the quality of animal testing for purpose of human benefits. Even the scientists claim that the research of animals is failing in 90% of human case studies. The logic says: 115 millions of animals are killed every year just for 10% of progress in science. That is not only morally unjust but that has about 450 alternatives and non-animal testing options, which wont cost taxpayers so much and which will offer more success when it comes to the area of homo sapiens problems. The top 10 animal testing countries in the world are the following:the USA, Japan, China, Australia, France, Canada, the UK, Germany, Taiwan and Brazil.

The Nigerian Army should Release Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and he's been leading this group with over 100million members who have been agitating for freedom for Biafrans and a peaceful secession from Nigeria for a sovereign state of Biafra.  Many IPOB members have been arrested, killed and shot by the Nigerian Army through her government under the command of President Muhammadu Buhari. The killing of innocent and unarmed Biafrans who have been calling for Referendum for a sovereign state of Biafra in Nigeria under the IPOB group have grown as the Nigerian army also continue to brutalize and kill them. On the 10th of September the Nigerian declared operation python dance II an exercise they used to carryout an attack at the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigerian Army invaded his home on the 14th of September and killed over 30 innocent and unarmed Biafrans who was at his home at the time. After breaking into his home, they forced their way into his bedroom and they took him away. The Nigerian Army till this point have refused to provide the IPOB leader. That is why we the Indigenous People of Biafra  (IPOB) are filing this petition for the Nigerian Army to release Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Sadly, we don't know if he's still alive or dead.

Latin as one of Official Languages of the European Union - Latino come una delle lingue UE

Latin should be recognized as one of the official languages of the European Union. As we know, Latin was the language spoken by the Ancient Romans, whose Empire covered most of the actual European countries. Furthermore, during the Middle Ages, Latin was the most widely spoken language in Europe, including countries never actually conquered by the Romans (Ireland, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway...) and it is still (nowadays) the official language of the Christian Church. Most European languages find their roots in the Latin language or were heavily influenced by it, directly (which is why we call them "Romance Languages") or indirectly (like English or German, for example). For all of these and many other reasons, we ask that the European Parliament recognizes Latin as one of the official languages of the European Union. We also ask the Latin translation of any Official European Communications. ...because Latin was the language of the "European Community" for centuries before it even was conceived with such name, and therefore deserves to be revived. Together, we can make Latin live again as a spoken language, and restore it to its rightful place as a widely spread and appreciated, historically and culturally suitable common language. Chiediamo che il Latino sia riconosciuto come una delle lingue ufficiali della Unione Europea. Il latino era la lingua dell'Impero Romano, che come è noto, ha conquistato molti paesi che oggi fanno parte dell'UE. Inoltre, durante il Medioevo, il Latino fu la lingua più parlata d'Europa, e con la Riforma Carolingia di Carlo Magno, divenne la lingua politica e culturale del continente, fino ad essere parlato anche in paesi mai conquistati dai Romani, quali l'Irlanda, la Polonia e i Paesi Scandinavi. Il latino è inoltre la lingua ufficiale, ancora oggi, della Chiesa cattolica. La maggior parte delle lingue moderne derivano dal latino (ed è per questo che le chiamiamo "Lingue romanze" o "neolatine") o sono comunque state influenzate dalla lingua latina (come ad esempio l'inglese e il tedesco). Ed è per questi e ad altri motivi che noi chiediamo che il Parlamento Europeo riconosca il latino assieme alle altre 24 lingue ufficiali dell'Unione Europea, e che le comunicazioni ufficiali del Parlamento Europeo vengano tradotti anche in latino! Perchè il latino è stata la prima lingua d'Europa, e insieme possiamo restituire a questa lingua il fascino e lo splendore che le spetta!

Stop Chinese Communist Dictator Chen Quanguo’s Crimes against Humanity in East Turkestan

(Mesheluyghur@gmail.com) This petition is also available in the following languages: Arabic (عربى), German (Deutsch), French (Français), Japanese (日本語), Russian (Pусский),Turkish (Turkçe), Chinese (Simplified),Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە,) Uyghur (Latinche), Slawiyanche (Kril) Feb 24th, 2018  Chen Quanguo is the Communist Party Secretary of East Turkestan (known as Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in present-day China). He was promoted to this post in August 2016, after subduing another heavily oppressed region — Tibet.  Since then, he has initiated a series of unprecedented repressive measures against the Uyghur people, and ideological purges against so-called “two-faced” Uyghur officials as well as Uyghurs who earned high-respect and/or have strong influence in their own professional fields or careers (The “two-faced” is a term applied by the regime to describe the Uyghurs who do not willingly follow directives and exhibit signs of “disloyalty.”).  Chen’s regime is now treating all the Uyghurs as criminals, and all the Uyghurs with religious faith as terrorists.  His government not only jailed a huge number of innocent Uyghurs (in some estimates this number is between 50,000 to 100,000), they also locked up far more people in Nazi-style concentration camps.  The total number now exceeds one million, constituting more than 10% of the total Uyghur population (according to China’s 2010 census) in East Turkestan. Even more horribly, the Chen’s regime is treating those one million Uyghur men and women in very inhuman ways both in prisons and in concentration camps. In prisons, those innocent “prisoners” are tortured in a way that people living in any civilized society cannot imagine. For example, the torture includes water cells, burning female victims’ faces and bodies with cigarettes and telling them “Call your God to rescue you”, hanging by the wrists, beating with police batons, electric batons or other objects, kicking, exposure to sustained cold, blinding with a hot, bright light, forcing a prisoner to maintain a stress position for prolonged periods, prolonged deprivation of sleep, water and food, restraining for days in so-called “tiger chairs” (used to immobilize suspects during interrogations), handcuffs, and leg irons. In most cases, such abuses have resulted in deaths, or physical and/or mental disabilities.  Here are two recent reports related to this petition:  (1)China Xinjiang police state: Fear and resentment http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-china-42911468/china-xinjiang-police-state-fear-and-resentment?ocid=wsnews.chat-apps.in-app-msg.whatsapp.trial.link1_.auin  (2) New party boss wields heavy hand of Chinese rule over Uyghurs https://www.rfa.org/english/news/special/uyghur-oppression/  Chen’s regime has turned more than one million Uyghurs into “Innocent Prisoners” in East Turkestan. We strongly believe that Chen’s policies and actions against Uyghurs, as exemplified above, constitute as Crimes Against Humanity, and Chen should be brought to justice for his crimes.  We, the Uyghurs, are powerless and helpless at the moment.  As such, we are unable to 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, and stop Chen Quanguo’s crimes against humanity in East Turkestan.  Please join us in our fight to end the appalling atrocities happening in East Turkestan. Please sign and share this petition.
