Ban violence against animals!

We call on Facebook to change their Community Standards to stop the glorification and inciting of violence against animals. Only the inclusion of those terms will allow users to report specifically on certain Facebook pages. This way, violence against animals could be banned from Facebook. There are plenty of pages, groups and events where animals abusers post pictures of sadistic and cruel violence against animals. These pictures show animals being trampled alive, stuffed into jars, burned alive or being sexually abused. No matter how often you report these pages, groups, events and images, you always get the same answer: "Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. We reviewed the comment you reported for containing credible threat of violence and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards." (source: Facebook) Obviously Facebook think, that violence can only be executed against humans and not against animals. But violence against animals is also unacceptable and morally wrong. This doesn’t seem to be the case for Facebook and some of their users. We call on Facebook to change this and consider animal welfare. Facebook should not encourage potential imitators by allowing sadistic content online. By changing their Community Standards they can show, that society doesn’t tolerate such behaviour.

Ban " Tag a friend" MEMES with real people in them

“Tag a Friend” Memes Needs To Be Stopped We all have been seeing this ' tag your friends’, ‘tell them I am looking for them’ memes popping up in our feed a couple of times daily. I groan at the amount of them clogging my news feed and ‘I DON’T FIND THEM FUNNY’. People in these photos are real people with real feelings which we are so casually ignoring for so long. Some sad person found their photos online and thought, ‘ hey!these are meme worthy’, let’s use them and posted them online for some fun, likes, and traffic. They exploited someone's struggles for a post, we cast our wisdom aside and aggressively started tagging our friends. Is this generation really that heartless and desperate for a like?Let me ask you a simple question. You found those memes hilarious but do you really think that the world revolves around you? Are you the only one with feelings and emotions? How did we forget that these are real people with real lives, they have social media account too and was it a crime for them to post their own pictures on their own account which we used for our own fun. Aren’t we being too cruel on them? Is it ok to use humans for entertainment? I mean seriously what is funny in those memes? Why is it funny at all? Just because he or she doesn’t conform to your idea of beauty, you know nothing about their struggles and you feel you have earned the right to mock them? Let me remind you if you have forgotten, it is never harmless fun to laugh at someone. Nothing about those memes is funny or cute, they are real people you all have been making fun of. A few days back I saw a young girl getting married to an old man and the whole video went viral for fun. Have we become a generation of insensitive people where instead of condemning these practice and forgetting that they are really happening in some parts of the world we are instead mocking them having fun at their expense.If it affected me so bad seeing them being the laughing stock how worse it would have been for them, I can’t even imagine.You think that isn’t it some harmless fun activity? Then why so much debate on this. But you are forgetting that your seemingly harmless activity is affecting someone and it shows nothing but our lack of respect and maturity. You don’t realize but it is nothing but cyber bullying you all are falling prey of. You don’t realize but you are turning yourself into a bully by mocking someone, I think we all know cyber bullying is a bad thing but I cringe seeing grown ups being a part of it. Next time think before posting them that what if I knew and loved this person would I still post this and tag my friends? Slow down and think. A little consideration can make all the difference.Making fun of someone is not ok. Humiliating someone is not fun. Please do think before posting next time because you never know who you might be hurting. To all those who spared no thought when you tagged someone in those posts, I am not judging you but kindly understand the gravity of it and prevent it going further. We are in the age where self-love needs to be promoted not hate. We deserve more kindness and we should act with more kindness. Let’s uplift others, inspire others, give them love and kindness because that is more worthwhile than few seconds of your fun. Don’t let superficiality win over kindness.Have a heart guys, use your voice to spread love not hate. I find it sickening that Facebook would refuse to remove these pages. Please sign my petition now to tell Facebook to immediately remove this hate speech from these pages. Please everybody sign this petition for the sake of those who are being the victim of it and are getting bullied by these insensitive  FB pages. It's my kind request to each one of you.

Eliminar todo contenido de intento o incitación de maltrato físico o psicológico a animales o/y personas.

Es necesario, ya que hoy en dia las redes sociales llegan a cualquier parte y repercuten en la sociedad mas de lo que nos pensamos, por ello, pido que se responsabilicen del contenido que se publica en su red. El maltrato animal y de personas está penado o debería y como tal no debería de ser elogiado o alardeado, y tampoco se deberían de difundir imágenes o contenidos de cualquier tipo de alabanza u orgullo ya que no es un tema para sentir ningún sentimiento positivo. Creo esta petición a raíz de una publicación en una página creada por y para mostrar y publicitar peleas de animales, donde las imágenes y comentarios son totalmente despectivos e insultantes para la sociedad, ya está denunciada en la propia red social, pero creo que es necesario concienciar a las redes sociales de que este contenido no es de agrado para nadie además de la repercusión que pueda tener en la sociedad. Siento la dureza de la imagen que he puesto, pero es la que me ha llevado a crear esta petición. Vergüenza Ajena. Espero que estéis conmigo en esta denuncia y logremos que se retiren de las redes estos contenidos tan insultantes. Gracias.

Remove " Cassidy Boon " from Facebook

As you're most likely aware a new troll is taking the internet by a storm, that goes by the name by " Cassidy Boon ". The known Feminist from blogging website The Portly Gazelle regularly posts articles in relation to Sexism, Racism and Feminism. However, her posts are to gain satisfaction by Disrupting and Agitating the online Facebook and Youtube community, which is commonly known as " Trolling ". Her rants are in fact exactly the opposite of what she is portraying them to be, which, obviously disturbs anyone to read and watch her updates. Some of her previous Articles posted on The Portly Gazelle : * A man Saved me from drowning but now I am suing him for rape because he touched me * My open letter to notch : why Minecraft is sexist and needs to be banned * All you English people need to stop drinking tea - It's racist towards Indians Are examples of her attempt to disorient the online Audience, As well some of her previously uploaded rants on her Facebook page in relation to : * Vegemite being racist due to the colour of the Spread * Why it's okay for girls to cheat on guys * Aussie girls are Dogs compared to me The troll is Unfortunately gaining the popularity from her online rants, however for all the wrong reasons, which is clearly upsetting the community, her rants are manipulative and irritating which are out of hand. As a proud Australian and part of the Australian Audience, I have been insulted and embarrassed by her negative and excessively reckless taunts she has flaunted, by targeting our native Aboriginal society and our all round Australian community. In relation to the same topic, I also speak for our New-Zealand neighbours, who have also been impacted in almost exactly the same way, I also speak for whom or what she may  unnecessarily target next. Cassidy is also trying to manipulate the online community to support her with her rants, by donating money for her needs of general communication and to publicly advertise her page with a string of dramatic hash-tags which raises further outrage amongst us. Facebook has enough drama to inflict us with, let's try to make some of it disappear. This change.org petition is created to remove the blogger from the Facebook community, so she cannot agitate the community any longer. Sign and share this petition. It's for a good cause. #Removethevirus Despite the small amount of petitions for removing Cassidy from Facebook on Change.org that haven't yet succeeded, lets do our best to make this one legitimate!

Stop the Cyber-Propaganda that encourage the abuse and mistreatment of animals.

Although every day there is more culture towards animals, we see that social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc ... do not have strong policies towards pages that incite violence against animals. In social networks children who are the future of our planet have access to this type of content which can encourage them to participate in these types of activities and to believe that it is a common and correct practice. Today I report one of the many pages on Facebook "Wild Africa Hunting Safaris" and the awful response from Facebook were they consider that the page does not violate any of the community rules. Although in the community rules there is a parable that says "it is forbidden to use Facebook to facilitate or organize criminal activities that cause injuries or material damages to business people or animals"  In the Facebook page "Wild Africa Hunting Safaris" and in many others, they organize trips in which the only purpose its to harm animals, In this same page the creator expresses that there are lions, elephants and many other animals available to hunt. Only with an "inbox" they can fix the hunting, so how is the page does conform to the community rules of Facebook?  Let us help Facebook to be more strict with this type of pages and that this type of practices are not within the reach of children, since indirectly Facebook does not remove the pages supports and incites violence against animals and the destruction of our planet.

MANIFIESTO POR LA HISTORIA Y LA LIBERTAD

MANIFIESTO POR LA  HISTORIA Y LA LIBERTAD No se puede imponer por una ley un único relato de la historia, ya que ninguna ley debe o puede variar los hechos históricos. No se debe borrar por una ley  la cultura, el sentimiento ni la memoria de un pueblo, y menos aún por razones ideológicas. Ninguna razón moral, ni derecho subyacente, puede primar sobre la analítica verdad de los hechos en las circunstancias del tiempo y lugar en que estos se produjeron. La interpretación de unos hechos, cualquiera que estos sean, no puede ceder a ninguna manipulación política partidista. Legislar sobre la historia o contra la historia es, simplemente, un signo de totalitarismo. Y es  antidemocrático y liberticida. Sin embargo, en España viene perpetrándose un inadmisible y flagrante “historicidio” desde la aprobación de la mal llamada Ley de Memoria Histórica de diciembre de 2007. Pese a ello, el Partido Socialista pretende ahora, en una vuelta de tuerca más, que se apruebe una nueva y espuria “Ley de Memoria Histórica”, con la intención de ilegalizar cualquier  asociación o fundación que sostenga puntos de vista diversos y plurales sobre los hechos acaecidos en el último siglo de la Historia Contemporánea de España. Con la implantación de una "Comisión de la Verdad", se amenaza con penas de cárcel, inhabilitación para la docencia y elevadas multas a quienes mantengan opiniones divergentes a la 'verdad única', la destrucción y quema de las obras o estudios declarados no 'gratos', y la expropiación, destrucción o transformación de una parte del patrimonio histórico-artístico de la etapa más reciente de España.   Tal proposición de ley ataca directamente los fundamentos de la Constitución y los valores superiores que su ordenamiento jurídico consagra: la libertad (de opinión, expresión, investigación y cátedra); la justicia (solo atribuible a jueces y tribunales); la igualdad (que impide la discriminación por sexo, raza, religión, ideología, opinión o cualquier otra condición o circunstancia personal o social); y el pluralismo político (ejercido como actividad libre dentro del respeto a la Constitución). Dicha proposición de ley, de resultar aprobada, chocaría frontalmente con la Constitución en su redacción y espíritu.  El proyecto vulnera el principio de la verdad documentada de la historia, como demuestra el mero hecho de que esa única versión quiera imponerse por la fuerza del Estado, al ser incapaz de sostenerse en un debate de investigación, serio, libre e  independiente. Su capcioso velo jurídico, invocando a modo de pantalla la dignidad de las víctimas de solamente una parte o equiparando el franquismo con diversos regímenes totalitarios, son solo el envoltorio sentimental y manipulador de una ofensiva contra la libertad de los españoles, contra la democracia y contra la verdad histórica.  Estamos ante una ley de tipo soviético que no debería ser propuesta por ningún partido, ni individuo, que respete la convivencia democrática en paz y en libertad, que solo sirve para reabrir viejas heridas que todos creíamos ya cicatrizadas y que, desde luego, nunca debería ser aprobada en una nación como España. Resultaría dramático para la convivencia de los españoles que ochenta años después del final de la Guerra Civil, y de haber transcurrido más de cuarenta tras la extinción del franquismo, se intente anular la libertad de pensamiento de los españoles, y reinstalar en la sociedad los mismos odios que condujeron a aquellos calamitosos acontecimientos.  Esta propuesta de ley debe ser rechazada con firmeza por toda la sociedad, pues España no puede permitirse una involución hacia regímenes del tipo implícito en la misma.  La experiencia histórica no debe pasar en balde, y de ella debemos aprender. Los hechos históricos son hechos históricos, y los estudios e investigaciones de los mismos deben producirse en total y plena libertad para el debate y la confrontación abierta de las ideas, pero jamás bajo la mordaza y el castigo penal de un estado democrático. Y ello principalmente, porque ningún parlamento democrático ni puede ni debe legislar sobre la Historia, pues de hacerlo, criminalizaría la Historia, estableciendo una checa de pensamiento único, al imponerse por la fuerza y la violencia del Estado.

Petitioning Hotties of Melbourne Uni Community Page

Remove the "Hotties of Melbourne Uni" Facebook Page

The "Hotties of Melbourne University" Facebook page perpetuates rape culture by:  1. Normalising predatory behaviour towards women as demonstrated in comments such as:  "shoot me with tranquilliser right now before I go out to hunt!”, "Geez she'd get it” and " This bloke doesn't take no for an answer”.  2. Posting photographs of people for the purposes of evaluating their desirability  without their permission. 3. Treating women as property; a commodity to be bought and sold through the promotion of comments such as “Sold: I'll trade you 6 goats and 100 gold pieces”. The continued presence of the page allows rape culture to trickle into the lives of the students of The University of Melbourne. It will no longer be tolerated for it condones  sexism, predatory behaviour and disrespect. We are not fooled by the hollow gloss of false humour.  Sign this petition to show that students of this university do not condone the page. It will be taken to the administrators to have it shut down.
