Kami rakyat Indonesia MENOLAK KERAS kembalinya para ex-Warga Negara Indonesia yang telah melepaskan kewarganegaraannya dan meninggalkan tanah air untuk bergabung dalam ISIS. Penolakan atas kembalinya para pendukung ISIS ini didasari atas pertimbangan-pertimbangan sebagai berikut: 1) Dengan bersumpah setia pada ISIS dan meninggalkan negaranya untuk bergabung dalam perjuangan ISIS di luar negeri pada dasarnya mereka sudah melepaskan kewarganegaraanya dan oleh karenanya tidak berhak kembali ke Indonesia. Dalam banyak kasus mereka bahkan telah membakar passport Indonesianya dan menyebarluaskan aksinya tersebut lewat sosial media. 2) Dasar hukum Pasal 23 huruf f UU No 12 Tahun 2006 tentang "Kewarganegaraan Republik Indonesia". Yang berbunyi: Warga Negara Indonesia kehilangan kewarganegaraannya jika yang bersangkutan:  f. secara sukarela mengangkat sumpah atau menyatakan janji setia kepada negara asing atau bagian negara asing tersebut;  Artinya dengan berbaiat kepada negara asing (ISIS) seorang Warga Negara Indonesia secara otomatis telah kehilangan kewarganegaraan Indonesianya. 3). ISIS tidak mengenal dan menghargai Hak Azasi Manusia (HAM). Dengan tidak berperikemanusiaan mereka telah membunuh musuh maupun rakyat sipil yang tak berdosa dengan cara-cara kejam yang diluar batas-batas peri kemanusiaan lalu secara bangga memamerkan kekejamannya itu lewat video-video yg disebar-luaskan. Oleh karena itu demi menjaga HAM rakyat Indonesia yang cinta damai dan setia kepada tanah airnya maka kami MENOLAK kembalinya para pendukung ISIS ke Indonesia. 4) Pengalaman membuktikan veteran perang Afghanistan yang kembali ke Indonesia justru menjadi pelaku peledakan Bom Bali dan pelaku penyebaran faham radikalisme di tanah air. Maka negara wajib melindungi keselamatan warga negaranya dari potensi teror dan penyebaran faham radikalisme dari para pendukung ISIS dengan tidak mengijinkan mereka kembali ke Indonesia.  Atas pertimbangan-pertimbangan diatas maka kami mengharap Pemerintah untuk menolak kembalinya para pendukung ISIS ke Indonesia. Mereka bukan lagi Warga Negara Indonesia, mereka tidak punya kesetiaan kepada NKRI dan mereka mengancam keselamatan Warga Negara Indonesia. Negara tidak boleh mengorbankan HAM warga negaranya untuk menghormati HAM mereka yang bukan lagi Warga Negara Indonesia.  Tanda tangani petisi ini untuk melindungi orang-orang yang kita cintai!

LinkedIn: Protect your users from stalkers and help keep victims safe

Every day, LinkedIn members are being stalked and threatened. Without a blocking feature, like ones available on other social media sites, these stalkers are able to see where their "prey" works, in which city they work, when they change jobs, when they move, etc. When being stalked and living in fear, it is easy to see how scary this situation can be. Adding a blocking feature is important for the millions of LinkedIn users around the world who are being stalked yet have no control to stop it.  Having written to LinkedIn customer service about blocking a user, I was told I was only able to block a member if that member is prohibited from having a LinkedIn account by virtue of a court order. This is ludicrous and to the extreme. We know from other social media outlets how easy it is to enable this feature. Why LinkedIn is so against keeping their users safe, I don't know. Users on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other sites can easily block other users. LinkedIn appears to be an outlier among other top social media sites. One may argue we can delete our profile or slightly change our name. I argue why should we have to sacrifice our networking opportunities for something that is neither our fault or something we are powerless against? Although I care about this issue for the good of all LinkedIn users, this issue is a personal one as well. I once was a victim of a sexual assult in the workplace. Being young, it was quite a traumatizing experience for me.  Because of this incident, I was forced to leave my position and I never looked back, hoping to leave it behind me for good. Unfortunately, the story was only just beginning. It was the start of a stalking -- something I could have never prepared myself for. E-mails, voicemails; some threatening, some flirty, day after day. I quickly found I could ignore emails, delete voicemails, block Facebook, use privacy settings on Twitter -- yet EVERYDAY I was being looked at on LinkedIn. It really started hitting close to home when he started researching my new connections to see where they where located; if they were in a different area in which I worked for him, he would e-mail me to see if I moved and what I was doing. Little things like that started getting me really scared. LinkedIn, please listen. I know I'm not the only one. There are millions of stories out there; I'm sure many worse than mine -- victims of domestic violence, for example. If it's happening to me, it could happen to anybody. You could be losing many potential users because you don't have this feature. I've read users' comments saying when another social network similiar to LinkedIn becomes available, they would switch simply because of this blocking feature issue. Listen to your users. Listen to what they are saying. Listen to their stories. Take action. This feature can save lives. This feature will ease millions of fears. This feature will allow users to freely display information free of worry.

Unhomeless the Homeless in California

**Declare State of Emergency in California for All Homeless Individuals and their Companion Animals**  *♡♡♡PLEASE REMEMBER♡♡♡* THAT THE NUMBERS LISTED IN THIS PETITION REPRESENT ACTUAL ***♡♡♡HUMAN BEINGS♡♡♡*** On any given night, there are over 148,000 homeless people in California - 23% of the entire nation’s homeless population. In L.A. County, for example, the number of homeless people climbed 13% in a year to just over 60,000, according to the latest point-in-time count. **The Los Angeles County count found a 24% increase in homeless youth, defined as people under 25, and a 7% jump in people 62 or older.  Officials estimate about 29% of people experiencing homelessness in the county are mentally ill or coping with substance abuse problems. About two-thirds of all people on the streets of metro Los Angeles are male, just under one-third are female, and about 2% identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. This year’s Count revealed that 23% of the unsheltered people experiencing homelessness—more than 9,200 people—were homeless for the first time last year. The majority (53%) cited economic hardship as the cause.  Los Angeles County has the second largest population of homeless people of any region in the United States, according to a government report released Wednesday. In Los Angeles, 600,000 people are considered "severely rent burdened," which means they spend half their income on rent. More than 8,000 people became homeless here for the first time last year, according to the 2017 Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority report. "We are reaching levels of inequality that we have not seen since the Gilded Age," said Tracy Rosenthal of the Los Angeles Tenants Union. The union helps organize tenant boycotts against things like rent increases and gentrification. **Updated 9/19** In L.A. County, for example, the number of homeless people climbed 12% in a year to just shy of 59,000, according to the latest point-in-time count. Within the city, the number soared to more than 36,000, a 16% increase. Los Angeles County's total — 55,188 — was behind only New York City's 76,501, according to the 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. However, 95 percent of people experiencing homelessness in New York City were sheltered, the report found, while only 22 percent of those experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles were sheltered in 2017. The HUD report findings were similar to the results of the 2017 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count released in June by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, which put the county's homeless total at 57,794 — an increase of 23 percent over the previous count. The HUD report found that on one night in January, nearly one of every four people experiencing homelessness in the United States was in New York City or Los Angeles. According to the report, overall homelessness increased nationwide this year for the first time in seven years, by slightly under 1 percent compared to 2016. On a given night across the country, 553,742 people were homeless, with nearly two-thirds housed in shelters or transitional housing programs and one- third living on the streets, according to the report L.A.'s big increase in homelessness had a significant impact on the national numbers. Between 2016 and 2017, individual homelessness increased by 9 percent (15,540 people) in the nation's major cities. Los Angeles accounted for 60 percent of this increase. According to the report, Los Angeles County ranked: - second nationally in the percent of unsheltered homeless, at 84.3 percent; - first in the number of individuals who are homeless, at 47,082; - first in the number of unaccompanied homeless youth at 5,163; and first in the number of homeless veterans (4,476) and percentage of unsheltered veterans (76.1 percent). California had 134,278 homeless people, and while the Golden State has the nation's largest population, the rate of 34 homeless residents per 10,000 people was twice the national average, according to the report. Of those, 68 percent were living on the streets, by far the worst percentage. The report said half the nation's homeless live in California, New York, Florida, Texas or Washington. Counties across the state are facing a pervasive and deepening homeless crisis that imminently endangers the health and safety of tens of thousands of residents, including veterans, women, children, LGBT, youth, persons with disabilities and seniors.  Nowhere is this more evident than in Los Angeles County at least  134,278 men, women and children -- 10,000 to 12,000 in Downtown, including more than 8,000 parents and children in the San Fernando Valley alone -- are without homes.More than 53,000 homeless people, or 40 percent of the state’s total, live in Los Angeles County. That number is up from about 36,000 just six years ago. There are beds for less than one third of the homeless in Los Angeles county, comprehensive services are available to far fewer than half, and the county jails are routinely used as a substitution for mental health facilities.  In Los Angeles county the tremendous scale of homelessness threatens the economic stability of the entire region by burdening emergency medical services and the social services infrastructure. It is time to treat this crisis like the emergency it truly is.  The increasing numbers of displaced homeless people and the lack of ongoing resources to stably re-house them require immediate and extraordinary action. That is why We in LA County are taking the lead in a statewide effort to ask Governor Brown to declare a state of emergency in California to address this growing humanitarian crisis. We need: *Provide 50,000 more vouchers, through a combination of Housing Choice Vouchers and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers, two longstanding key programs that provide needed rental subsidies for extremely low-income Americans; *Increse the value of those vouchers to account for the high cost of rents in America’s cities and counties; and, *Create a program based on best-practices to incentivize landlords to work with voucher holders to find stable housing Specifically, we urge you to implement the following recommendations: (1) Create a system for secure storage of the personal property of people experiencing homelessness. Without reasonable provision for the storage and safety of homeless people’s possessions (for example, a site with a tub or shopping cart - sized public locker system), homeless encampments are inevitable. (2) Meet the basic medical and hygienic needs of the homeless people in our midst. Beyond simply assuring access to public restrooms throughout our cities / county during the day, we ask that you: a) Establish a system of easily accessible medical / hygienic facilities (perhaps through medical vans or hygienic equivalents) to be made available to homeless people during the day, so that they could be treated for simple ailments like colds or the flu, as well as have their persons and their belongings “deloused” (freed from bed bugs / lice) b) Establish a system of infirmaries and, if needed, one-night quarantine wards for those arriving ill or infested with bugs, so that homeless persons arriving at the shelters for the night can become confident that they will not simply contract the flu or pests while sleeping at the shelters. (3) Do not close shelters (that is, do not expel the people that the shelters are serving) before a reasonable hour (7-8 am). No one should be forced to leave a shelter at 5 or 6 am, literally into the cold and darkness, before most other businesses and services open. (4) Establish a system of “day centers,” often called “multipurpose centers,” so that people experiencing homelessness have safe places to go to during the day where they could have many of the above mentioned needs met, as well have places to receive counseling, access to phones and computers with internet access for jobs, possible family and/or friends to reconnect  or simply to rest /recreate. (5) Respect the right of people experiencing homelessness to file complaints against homeless service providers and allow them to document the problems and complaints they have about the shelters through photography, video, or audio recordings MUCH MORE NEEDS TO BE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED NOW ! Please join us! Sign our petition urging to declare the homeless crisis a state of emergency and bring the concerted effort and resources needed to tackle this crisis in a meaningful way.  Homelessness, Humanitarianism, Social justice, Human Rights, Economic Justice, Homeless crisis, Affordable housing, Civil Rights, Civil Liberties, and the Right to Live Free of prejudice.  No human in our country should be homeless. Let's take the first step together. Every single man, woman, child, baby deserves a safe place to call home. Along with their cats, dogs, birds, fish, and all the other additional animals types that are "family pets/companionship and should be lovingly taken cherished in a home also. Please then Share this petition with your family, friends, neighbors, and on your social media to spread the word even further.  Thank you for your support.

Los PEREZOSOS son animales folìvoros que habitan en los bosques húmedos tropicales de Centro y Sur América. Estos se dividen en dos grandes familias, 2 especies de dos dedos, y 4 especies de 3 dedos; para un total de 6 especies. Lamentablemente, una de estas especies se encuentra en peligro de extinción y las otras 5 están siendo amenazadas agresivamente por parte del hombre. Actualmente son dos los factores que amenazan directamente a estas especies. Estas son: La deforestación, y la comercialización ilegal de dicha especie. En los últimos años, se ha desencadenado un aumento exacerbado en la comercialización ilegal de este animal. Esta práctica, sólo les asegura el sufrimiento total, ya que una vez son removidos de su hábitat y las condiciones necesarias para su sobrevivencia, las expectativas de vida para este ejemplar son conciderablemente bajas; en la mayoría de los casos mueren. Es por eso, que se solicita el apoyo y respaldo general de todas las personas en este movimiento en contra de la comercialización ilegal de estas especies. Además, se hace un llamado a las diferentes agencias reguladoras y a otras entidades que puedan promover este mensaje a favor de la protección y preservación de los PEREZOSOS,  y en contra de todo acto que atente de alguna manera con el bienestar de estas especies. Estas especies, tienen una gran importancia  ecológica irremplazable. Los PEREZOSOS constituyen con la mayor proporción de la biomasa del bosque húmedo tropical. ¡APOYEMOS AL PEREZOSO; DEFENDAMOS LA VIDA!

Protect online freedom in Vietnam

(Vietnamese text at the bottom) There has never been a worse time to be an online blogger in Vietnam.   On June 12, 2018, the Vietnamese National Assembly approved a controversial cyber security law that would require giant tech companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Apple and Samsung to share the personal data of users in Vietnam.   The Vietnamese Communist Party’s harsher restrictions on online dissent would require social media and tech companies in Vietnam to remove any anti-state content from their platforms.  The new cyber security law is a serious violation of international legal standards.  This measure would be used only to further legalize the ongoing crackdown on peaceful online dissent, bloggers and activists like Nguyen Trung Ton, Truong Minh Duc, Pham Van Troi, Nguyen Bac Truyen, Hoang Duc Binh, Tran Hoang Phuc, Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh (also known as Mother Mushroom), Tran Thi Nga, Bui Van Trung and Ho Van Hai.  Violent protests were held in some parts of the country against the content control measure that would restrict the online freedom and right to privacy of the 53% and rising share of Vietnam’s population of 90 million who have access to the Internet.   There is now no safe place left in Vietnam for people to speak freely.  That is why giant tech companies have a social responsibility to withdraw their services if Vietnam fails to revoke its controversial cyber security law before it takes effect in 2019.  Member countries of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) must confront Vietnam when it defies international trade and cooperation standards and, ultimately, the Internet itself.  Sign this petition to protect online freedom and freedom of speech in Vietnam.  More information:  Nguyen Dieu Tu Uyen and John Boudreau, “Vietnam parliament passes cyber law denounced in street protests,” The Sydney Morning Herald, June 13, 2018.  Prashanth Parameswaran, “What’s Next For Vietnam’s New Cyber Law?” The Diplomat, June 12, 2018.  Mai Nguyen, “Vietnam lawmakers approve cyber law, tighten rules on Google, Facebook,” Reuters, June 12, 2018.  “Vietnam Parliament passes cyber law denounced in street protests,” Bloomberg, June 12, 2018.  Human Rights Watch, “Vietnam: Withdraw Problematic Cyber Security Law,” June 7, 2018.  Amnesty International, “Viet Nam: New Cybersecurity law a devastating blow for freedom of expression,” June 12, 2018.  “Statement from the U.S. Embassy [and Canada] on the Draft Cybersecurity Law.”   ___________________________________________________________________ Thư Thỉnh Cầu KHÔNG ĐÁP ỨNG Luật An Ninh Mạng Việt Nam Kính gởi quí vị Giám Đốc Điều Hành: Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Apple, and Microsoft Kính thưa quí vị, Chưa bao giờ những nhà báo mạng ở Việt Nam trải qua thời gian bi thảm như thế. Ngày 12 tháng 6 năm 2018, Quốc Hội Việt Nam thông qua Luật An Ninh Mạng đầy tranh cải, luật đòi hỏi những công ty kỹ thuật cung cấp thông tin của người sử dụng internet tại Việt Nam. Đảng Cộng Sản Việt Nam tỏ ra cứng rắn hơn với những nhà bất đồng chinh kiến trên mạng.  Họ đòi hỏi những trang mạng xã hội gỡ bỏ những nội dung chống chánh quyền trong vòng một ngày sau khi nhận yên cầu từ chánh quyền. Luật An Ninh Mạng vi phạm nghiêm trọng căn bản luật pháp quốc tế, đồng thời cho phép nhà cầm quyền được tùy tiện xác định những ý kiến nào là phạm luật phải gỡ bỏ. Biện pháp nầy có thể dùng để hợp pháp hoá những hành vi đàn áp những cư dân mạng ôn hoà và những người bất đồng chính kiến như Nguyễn Trung Tôn, Trương Minh Đức, Phạm Văn Trội, Nguyễn Bắc Truyển, Hoàng Đức Bình, Trần Hoàng Phúc, Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh ( Mẹ Nấm), Trần Thị Nga, Bùi Văn Trung, Hồ Văn Hải. Đã nổ ra những cuộc phản kháng ở nhiều nơi trên toàn quốc chống lại cuộc bỏ phiếu cho dự luật kìm chế tự do thông tin mạng và vi phạm quyền riêng tư cá nhân của 53% trong hơn 90 triệu người dân đang xữ dụng Internet ở Việt Nam. Việt Nam không phải nơi an toàn cho người dân được tự do phát biểu.  Vì vậy những đại công ty kỹ thuật phải có trách nhiệm xã hội là phải ngưng cung cấp dịch vụ Internet nếu Việt Nam không chịu hủy bỏ Luật An Ninh Mạng, sẽ có hiệu lực kể từ ngày 1 tháng Giêng năm 2019. Những quốc gia thuộc nhóm Đối Tác Toàn Diện và Tiến Bộ Xuyên Thái Bình Dương (CPTPP) phải đương đầu với Việt Nam khi họ thách thức thế giới về thương mại, những tiêu chuẩn hợp tác và sau cùng là vấn đề Internet. Xin ký tên vào thơ Thỉnh Nguyện nầy để bảo vệ quyền tự do Internet và tự do ngôn luận. Liên Minh Dân Chủ Việt Nam

LinkedIn: Protect your users from stalkers and help keep victims safe

Hi everyone, my name is Paul Rockwell, and I head up Trust & Safety at LinkedIn. We know members have requested a blocking feature on LinkedIn. I come to you today to assure you that your concerns were heard loud and clear. We built this feature not only because it was a feature our members requested, but because we also knew it was the right thing to do. I’m pleased to share that we are rolling out a new Member Blocking feature today to all LinkedIn members. While on the surface this may seem like a simple feature to develop, it was not. There were many different use cases to consider, products and features to integrate, as well as a user interface we had to create. In addition to Member Blocking, there are also a number of other LinkedIn settings that you may want to consider such as: • Disconnecting - This provides you with the ability to remove any existing connection to another member in your network. • Customize Your Public Profile - This provides you with control over the profile content that's discoverable by search engines. • Activity Broadcasts - This provides you with control whether others can see updates to your profile, recommendations made and companies followed. • Photo Visibility - This provides you with control over who can see your profile photo. • Profile Viewing – This alters what others see when you visit their profile. Before you decide to block another member, we recommend you enable anonymous profile viewing (the last bullet listed above). For an overview of our new Member Blocking feature, which includes a link to the instructions on how to block, visit our Safety Center here: We remain committed to providing our members with a safe experience, and welcome any feedback you would like to share with us. Thanks again, Paul
