Companies: Stop advertising on Fox News
“The most effective thing Americans can do is boycott companies that advertise on Fox. They bankroll the poison that goes from the studio into Trump’s head. The second is vote.” – Financial Times’ U.S. National Editor Fox News is propaganda disguising itself as news. It peddles conspiracy theories, hate speech, and ignorance. Its announcers parrot white nationalist talking points and frequently push racist narratives. Fox News lowers the level of our public discourse, and is a key route for fringe views to make their way into the mainstream. Fox News encourages polarization, fear and hatred. Like any other media organization, Fox News is made possible by its advertisers. Major companies bankroll Fox News with their advertising purchases. The signers of this petition ask Fox New’s top advertisers to stop advertising there. Until they stop advertising on Fox News, we will boycott their products. This spreadsheet includes detailed contact information for the companies listed in this petition. In addition to signing and sharing this petition, please contact them to tell them what you think of their supporting one of the most negative influences in American society today.
Evitar cierre del Circuito de la Ribera
Sentimos comunicaros que el Ayuntamiento de Guadassuar nos ha cerrado las instalaciones por unos motivos DESPROPORCIONADOS. Un motivo es el desvío de la linea aérea de media tensión (Alegan que no hemos terminado las obras y es un condicionante) Y NO ES CONDICIONANTE , PORQUE DECIDIMOS QUITARLA POR NOSOTROS, NINGÚN ORGANISMO NOS HA CONDICIONADO A QUITAR LA LÍNEA , ES UNA MEJORA NUESTRA.El otro motivo es el aforo de los locales de pública concurrencia (confundiendo , según informe de la Consellería, locales de pública concurrencia con los boxes de uso privativo)El Circuit de la Ribera ha presentado un contencioso administrativo contra el Ayuntamiento. Desde que entró este último alcalde nos hemos sentido perseguidos, ha sido un continuo acoso y derribo , cada día alegándonos temas diferentes con continuos cambios de criterio.El alcalde dice que defiende la legalidad y la imparcialidad, creemos que será para algunos. El alcalde hace más caso a unas señoras con viviendas ilegales y ejerciendo actividades fuera de la ley ( alquilando sus viviendas por las redes ) que a un circuito totalmente legal.Con todo expuesto cabe destacar que el equipo del Circuit de la Ribera está trabajando más duro que nunca para poder abrir cuanto antes, tenemos varias vías positivas para conseguirlo en breve.Disculpen las molestias y agradecemos su comprensión
GM Should Upgrade OnStar Hardware for 2G-Equipped Vehicles
GM Vehicles equipped with 2G hardware will lose their direct connection to OnStar services at the end of December 2022, with the sunset of 2G. GM is offering a phone application called Guardian to replace some of these services, but this is not acceptable. Many of us have been loyal GM & OnStar customers for many years and have faithfully paid monthly fees to OnStar. GM should offer a free hardware upgrade to all of our vehicles. This is a matter of respecting loyal GM customers and, more importantly, a matter of public safety. GM, please upgrade our vehicles so they can maintain their direct connection to OnStar after the 2G Sunset.
Bring Back the Astro Van
A Proposition of Astronomical Proportions to General Motors: In 1985, you provided a macro-response to the minivan. With 182 cubic feet of cabin space, the do-everything Astro van can carry enough groceries to outlast winter. And if your local supermarket happened to be on top of a mountain peak, you gave us an all-wheel-drive workhorse that could climb that rocky road. Two glorious decades and 3.2 million Astro vans followed before the last one rolled off the line at Baltimore Assembly in 2005. The van you no longer sell continues to respond to the times. Fifteen years later, a growing community continues to recognize and discover what an Astro can do on the terrain of road and the ride of life. Generations of enthusiasts program Google Alerts and scour Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace in search for one of these well-cared for rigs. We share our stories, pictures designs and building hacks in social media groups. Your versatile van of the past offers an untethered future. It gives the gift of creative adventure through non-traditional travel and lodging. But only if we can keep it running. And we have gone great lengths to do so. To many, your first entry into the minivan market was our first dive into #vanlife. Our escapades in your Astro van have shown us a world of adventure lies beyond its Dutch double doors. We implore you to take a gander. For we are a growing group who are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to discuss buying a new Chevy Astro van with one of your salespersons. We want to buy. We want you to #bringbacktheastro, General Motors. And since we’re here, let’s do it with more accessible sparkplugs and universally sized drink holders, please.www.bringbacktheastro.comInstagram: @bringbacktheastro
Investigate the Exploitation of Uyghurs in Chinese Factories
Uyghurs are a minority of Muslims living in the northwest area of China. The Chinese government forced a number from thousands to millions of Uyghurs to move into Xinjiang "re-education camps." In these concentration camps, the goal was to sinicize [assimilate] Uyghurs, or "make Chinese." Their culture was ripped away from them. They were forced to eat pork, drink alcohol, and some women were even married off to Han men. "But there is new evidence to show that the Chinese authorities are moving Uighurs into government-directed labor around the country as part of the central government's "Xinjiang Aid" initiative. For the party, this would help meet its poverty-alleviation goals but also allow it to further control the Uighur population and break familial bonds." Now there are claims that Uyghurs have been moved to sweatshops in Xinjiang. Under an investigation by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Uyghurs were found "mak[ing] goods for more than 80 established global brands." This means that they were working in factories that these companies supply from. These brands include "Abercrombie & Fitch, Acer, Adidas, Alstom, Amazon, Apple, ASUS, BAIC Motor, BMW, Bombardier, Bosch, BYD, Calvin Klein, Candy, Carter’s, Cerruti 1881, Changan Automobile, Cisco, CRRC, Dell, Electrolux, Fila, Founder Group, GAC Group (automobiles), Gap, Geely Auto, General Electric, General Motors, Google, H&M, Haier, Hart Schaffner Marx, Hisense, Hitachi, HP, HTC, Huawei, iFlyTek, Jack & Jones, Jaguar, Japan Display Inc., L.L.Bean, Lacoste, Land Rover, Lenovo, LG, Li-Ning, Mayor, Meizu, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Mitsumi, Nike, Nintendo, Nokia, The North Face, Oculus, Oppo, Panasonic, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Roewe, SAIC Motor, Samsung, SGMW, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, Sony, TDK, Tommy Hilfiger, Toshiba, Tsinghua Tongfang, Uniqlo, Victoria’s Secret, Vivo, Volkswagen, Xiaomi, Zara, Zegna, ZTE." These companies NEED to: 1. Conduct an investigation into the factories in question. 2. Make a public statement regarding the issue, letting consumers know what the investigation found. 3. End all manufacturing related to the Xinjiang area.

Help Grant get a handicapped minivan in 2018!!
In early 2014 I was stricken with the H1N1 bird flu. It quickly turned into severe double pneumonia. After 2 days at our local hospital I was flown by Medivac to a larger teaching hospital for intensive care. I was placed in a coma for 3 weeks as my body battled for my life, as my organs started to shut down from sepsis. I survived but with some serious life altering changes. The sepsis had destroyed my kidneys, and has left me with permanent nerve damage to my legs and arms. I now have to have dialysis 3 days a week for 4 hours a day. I have been wheelchair bound from the nerve damage and passing out if I stand for more than 15 seconds or so. Because of this I have the need of a mini van or SUV with a ramp or lift so I can take my power wheelchair out of my home and go places most people take for granted, like the grocery store or church. I want to take some of the burden off of my wife and son who take care of me. This petition is to bring attention to my plight, and get these manufacturers to donate a vehicle with a wheelchair ramp or lift. It need not be new, and I have no preference to make or model. I would give anything to make this dream a reality!! If a company wanted to advertise with the van like putting signs on it, that would be great. I just really need this to happen. If you would like to make a small donation to help fund my dream, you can go here... https://www.facebook.com/donate/409456522804643/ Thank you and God bless you for signing my petition and showing these manufacturers that you're watching to see what they do.
Make GM issue a recall for faulty rocker arm valve in 2014 & 2015 Chevy Impalas & Malibus
There is an issue with both the 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet Impala and the Malibu. A part in the engine will stop working properly and the vehicle began to lose power and then regain power while accelerating and also while still in motion even while not currently accelerating. It also will negatively effect the fuel economy and oil distribution in the vehicle. The part is a rocker arm (part# 12633613) and is not available and there is no estimated time per GM when it will be available again. My vehicle has not been safe to drive and has been sitting at the dealership waiting on the repair since October 15th 2019, it is currently January 8th 2020. With a little bit of research I was able to determine that the availability of this part has been an issue for vehicle owners going back to June of 2019. This part is an issue for all 2014 and 2015 Impala and Malibu vehicles with the engine type in the 2014 Impala LS. The dealership has referred to the GM part as being defective yet GM has not issued a recall. GM refuses to provide any information regarding the part and will not even confirm if it will ever be produced again. This issue is effecting thousands of vehicles and GM’s failure to address this issue is leaving the owners of the affected vehicles driving in unsafe vehicles, some owners may not even be aware of this problem. GM needs to issue a recall or manufacture more of the part if it is simply a production issue (which they will not confirm or deny). This issue effects the safety of everyone on the road and additionally it adds an undue financial burden to the owners of the affected vehicles. Make General Motors do the right thing!
INSIGNIA RE-CALL OIL PICK UP PIPE SEAL
The insignia at heart is a really well engineered solid reliable family car which rides well even after many miles. Although it has one thorn in its side, the 2.0 cdti engine it fatally flawed with a poor oil pump seal and a week crankshaft, this resulted in a total catastrophic failure of the engine at 125000 miles, it was unsalvageable as the crank bearings had "spun" unfortunately this isn't a rare occurrence, intact it is almost guaranteed on cars over 100,000 miles up to around 140,000 miles, the crankshaft fails on these cars, sometimes through a failure of an oil pump seal in the sump, the result is no oil pressure, which saves the engine. If you get a warning on the dash it's already too late and will shortly be followed by knocking and tapping from the engine. Replacement is the only (temporary) fix, but working second hand engines are rare and expensive.. do your research! "Insignia oil pressure warning" This , as far as I am aware only affects the 2.0 cdti units and not the petrol models or the new 1.5 cdti's. All Insignia’s should be re-called to have this issue fixed as it can be very costly in replacing the engine just for a seal on the pick up pipe. Facebook page : Vauxhall Insignia Owners
General Motors Company to accept Shiba INU coins as a method of payment.
In this time of the emerging digital assets, it would be the next step moving forward to increase the customer base of General Motors Company by accepting Shiba INU crypto currency coins as a method of payment. This opportunity would greatly benefit the company and customers. All successful businesses must recognize change and be adaptive to maintain relevance. If GM establishes a plan of action and milestones (POA&M) for this evolution of business success by accepting Shiba INU coins it can regain the popularity of the next generation of tomorrow's future leaders. As a member of a continously growing community of hundreds of thousands of holders, soon to be millions of holders, we would gladly be honored to give our business exclusively to General Motors Company. Shiba INU and General Motors Company- the future is now!
100 Trees Per Car
I am a 14-year-old girl from the Bay Area trying to do my part to help fight against climate change! I’ve launched a website (www.100treespercar.org to inform people about climate change and the harmful impact of emissions from cars, trucks and deforestation, and to urge them to sign a petition on Change.org . Please sign this petition to join me in asking local auto dealerships (including Toyota, Ford, GM, Lexus, Subaru, and others), to commit to donating 100 dollars to the Arbor Day Foundation for each car or truck sold or leased this next year, and hopefully many years to come. This commitment would allow the Arbor Day Foundation to plant an additional 100 trees for every car or truck sold or leased, which would be a step in the right direction in the battle against climate change. We know that motor vehicles emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere, and cause worldwide temperatures to rise. According to the EPA, transportation accounts for almost 30 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, making it the largest contributor of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. And cars and trucks are responsible for nearly 75% of those emissions. Worldwide, road transport accounts for over 15% of total CO2 emissions. Deforestation also causes climate change. Tropical deforestation alone contributes about 20% of annual global greenhouse gas. While rainforests once covered 14% of the Earth’s land surface, they now cover less than 5%. Every day, more than 200,000 acres of rainforest are burned. That means that more than 150 acres are lost every minute, every day, which adds up to 78 million acres of forest lost every year. At that rate, the remaining rainforests could be destroyed in less than 40 years. The combination of such rapid deforestation and high vehicle emissions is dangerous. Trees are essential to human and environmental health. They give off oxygen that we need to breathe and they help reduce air pollution. One mature tree can absorb 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and one acre of forest is needed to absorb twice the CO2 produced by the average car's mileage each year. So, in order to counterbalance the damaging emissions from cars and deforestation, we need to plant many, many trees every year. The campaign for 100 Trees Per Car is designed to help. Larger and more numerous forests will not only reduce greenhouse gases, but restore and create habitat for many endangered species and reduce the amount of stormwater runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways. Forests can also help reduce the spread of zoonotic disease, which, as we have all learned this past year, is critically important. By participating in the 100 Trees Per Car campaign, and asking local car dealerships to support reforestation efforts and offset the greenhouse gas emissions that cars produce, you can make a difference. Please join me. We don’t have time to waste. Even though more electric vehicles are being sold, gas powered engines will remain more numerous for years to come. So, please sign your name below and join the 100 Trees Per Car campaign - for you, for all of us, and for the world! Ruby K.
