Save Your Uber in London

TfL and their chairman, the Mayor of London, announced last week that they have decided not to renew Uber’s Operator Licence when it expires on 30th September. By wanting to ban our app from the capital, Transport for London and their chairman the Mayor have given in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive millions of Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. This decision is affecting the real lives of a huge number of honest and hard-working drivers in London. The 3.5 million Londoners who rely on Uber to get a safe, reliable and affordable ride around the best city in the world will be astounded by the decision to ban Uber from the capital. This ban shows the world that London is far from being open and is closed to innovative companies, who bring choice to consumers and work opportunities to those who need them. Safety is of the highest importance and drivers who use Uber are licensed by Transport for London and have been through the same enhanced background checks as black cab drivers. Our pioneering technology has gone further to enhance safety with every trip tracked and recorded by GPS. To defend the livelihoods of 40,000 drivers - and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners - sign this petition asking to reverse the decision to ban Uber in London. #SaveYourUber

Get Grenfell Tower victim's parents to the UK

After the horrific inferno fire that engulfed the residents of Grenfell Tower Mohammad Alhajali passed away by choking to death from the smoke. I have started this petition on behalf of Omar Alhajali as I am their family friend and would like to reunite them with their family.  Mohammed al-Haj Ali was trapped inside London flat for two hours after being separated from his brother during the inferno. His brother Omar was taken to hospital after escaping and remained in contact with Mohammed, who was still trapped inside the flat.  "The smoke is getting in, the smoke is getting in, we are going to die, we are going to die," were Mohammed's last words to his brother.  Friends who were close to Mohammed told Middle East Eye that he was in contact with them till 5am.  Before dying, Ali asked his friends to tell his family in Damascus that he loves them.  After leaving Syria, he had not seen his family for five years and was forced to limit communication to ensure their safety amid the crackdown against the opposition. His parents are currently applying for an emergency visa to visit Omar their son in hospital and attend their son Mohammad's funeral. We need to get  their voices heard to the Home Office so that we can persuade an acceptance of the visa. Please help us collect as many signatures as possible to get them to the UK

Stop risking lives: bring in crucial fire safety regs now; make the UK's tower blocks safe

As someone who lives on one of London's many estates, I recognise those who died in Grenfell as extended neighbours.  I happen to work right next to Grenfell, and was haunted by the burnt out tower this morning on my way to a meeting.  We cannot let this happen again. And yet, this is not the first time.  A tragic fire at Lakanal House, Camberwell, on 3rd July 2009 cost us six lives.  An inquest was held and its findings given in 2013, but only to a limited few, who have sat on the results all this time. Following the critical findings of the coroner's 2013 report on the earlier Lakanal fire, which highlighted issues that could have prevented Grenfell, we are asking for the immediate implementation of recommendations from that report. Some recommendations from the report's coroner include: use of fire resistant materials regular fire assessments providing residents with full instructions about what to do in the event of a fire At Lakanal, exterior panels that were not fire resistant were found to have caused the blaze to spread far quicker.  It is becoming apparent that a similar issue may have caused the Grenfell tragedy. I will never forget the image of that hollowed-out building, now a skeleton on the skyline.  Or the wreckage in the nearby children's play area, which I had passed so many times before. Grenfell is a place like so many across London, full of our neighbours, friends and families.  We must demand more of the authorities, to protect us, and not let other people's interests, and financial considerations, cost lives.

Call for UN Security Council to intervene in Myanmar stop genocide of the Muslims

Very shocking and disturbing images and video of brutality and genocide in Myanmar are emerging on social media and independent media has confirmed these. The world need to act fast to save this human tragedy. The UN should consider sending troops because Myanmar is constantly refusing to allow UNHCR and other agencies working there. If this continues happening the world will see more instability as terrorist outfits use these incidents to exploit Muslims centimetres for their heinous agenda.

#InvestInYouthWork

Youth work is important but it’s under threat. Pledge to invest in growing the service for London's young people.   The cuts in youth provisions has had more of an impact on us (young people) than people may think and we care - enormously. Young people want and need to be able to socialise in a safe and secure environment. Youth provisions create great opportunities for young people. They give us places of learning, chances to build friendships, access to professional and local support and to have fun! It gives us a place we can call ours. But it's under threat.  Because of cuts decided by adults, many youth workers are losing their jobs. They are as important to us as the venues and programmes being closed down and under threat. Also, many places we care about are being closed down and hours of delivery being reduced. This issue affects us all, whatever your age. This needs to stop. We want mayoralty candidates to pledge to invest in and protect youth services in London right now. We can see plenty of money being spent on expensive new homes but not on provisions for the community that already lives here. Quality youth work and services are important to us and important to the whole community. London needs these services. We came together thanks to the work of the Rio Ferdinand Foundation and Rio supports us on this campaign.  “I have often said that if I had not been lucky enough to be a professional footballer I would have worked in youth services in some way, as I remember the support and mentoring my friends and I had when we were young, and some of my friends work in that field to this day. In the current climate youth services are increasingly under threat, and while in some parts of London great work continues as with our partnership with Lewisham Council, in other areas youth provision is minimal and young people are missing the opportunities we had when I was younger.  It is great that young people themselves are recognising the issues confronting them, from youth club closures to jobs to housing, and are campaigning to do something about it. I am proud to support their voice and their cause both personally and via my Foundation.” Rio Ferdinand  We invite the candidates to meet us, listen to us, acknowledge our campaign, and respond to our views and ideas. Change needs to happen before it’s too late. Please sign and share this petition and help us show the candidates for London Mayor 2016 how important youth provision is all over London. We can all be part of the solution.  #InvestInYouthWork

BAN The Extremist, Terrorist Supporting Al Qud's March In London On June 18th

The Al Quds Day March is scheduled to be held in London on 18 June 2017. Previous Al Quds Day marches have seen displays of support for Hezbollah, an illegal, proscribed, antisemitic terrorist organisation. This has caused great distress to the Jewish Community. Al Quds Day is an annual day chosen by the late Ayatollah Khomeini to call for Israel to be destroyed. “The Quds Day is not merely a strategic solution for the Palestinian problem, …. any freedom lover and justice seeker in the world must do its best for the annihilation of the Zionist regime.” Additionally, Hezbollah is currently massacring Syrian civilians on behalf of the Assad regime. Last year, on Sunday 3 July 2016, Hezbollah flags were carried and waved by participants in the Al Quds Day March. There were also placards with the words “We Are All Hezbollah”. Then Home Secretary, Theresa May, gave clear guidance on hate crime to all polices forces that makes specific mention of antisemitism and confirmed that holding Hezbollah flags is a criminal offence in accordance with Section 13 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The act states that people who ‘wear clothing or carry or display articles in public in such a way or in such circumstances as arouse reasonable suspicion that an individual is a member or supporter of the proscribed organisation are guilty of a criminal offence." Hezbollah’s External Security Organisation was proscribed in March 2001 and in 2008 the proscription was extended to Hezbollah’s Military apparatus including the Jihad Council. Hezbollah is a deeply antisemitic organisation. Robert S. Wistrich devotes an entire chapter of his history of antisemitism, ‘A Lethal Obsession’, to Hezbollah. After the terrible recent terrorist events in Manchester and London this display of extremism has no place on the streets of the UK.. Allowing this march to go ahead will send a worrying message to the UK's Jewish community and call into question the commitment of the Mayor of London to eradicate extremism and anti Semitism We the undersigned urge you to ban this march showing that your words are backed up by your actions.

Save the South Bank from the private Garden Bridge development

Help us challenge this in the HIgh Court! Support us here thanks: www.everyclick.com/tcos The Thames is London's biggest piece of open space and its largest nature conservation area. Its openness is under threat as there are plans to put a Garden Bridge in the busiest tourist part of London, from Temple Tube Station to the South Bank, at a cost of £185 million pounds; over £60 million of it will be public money. It’s not a real garden nor an essential bridge; it's mostly concrete with less than half a football pitch of green space. 90% of users are not expected to use it to cross the river but it will have a devastating impact on the river's ecosystem and historic foreshore and will bring up to 7 million visitors to a South Bank already bursting with tourists. If it is built: - protected iconic views from Waterloo Bridge & South Bank e.g. St Paul's Cathedral, Houses of Parliament or Waterloo sunsets, will be ruined, truncated & lost forever.  - NO cycling allowed, NO picnics allowed, Inadequate toilets for millions of people. NO full step-free access. Groups of 8 or more are requested to book in advance. You will be TRACKED using your mobile phone wifi. THIS WILL BE A PRIVATE BRIDGE WITH NO PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY RUN BY A PRIVATE COMPANY; IT IS THE PRIVATISATION OF OUR PUBLIC SPACES. - there are many public services or other parts of the country that desperately need the investment more. The South Bank is thriving - positively heaving, and the North bank is healthy and wealthy enough as it is.  - the environmental effects of the bridge will be catastrophic; the proposed landing site on the South Bank will take away open green space and destroy over 30 mature trees to accommodate a large commercial building. - the rising cost of construction and the burden of annual maintenance, currently £3.1m per year, will fall upon the public if the Garden Bridge Trust fails to deliver. There are already nine bridges spanning two miles between Westminster and London Bridges, seven of which can be crossed by foot; that's more than plenty.  PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION to the decision makers to stop the Garden Bridge and comment on why you are signing; all feedback is welcome and encouraged. Many thanks for your support. Follow us on Twitter: @TCOSLondon Contact: thamescentralopenspace@gmail.com

Private hire drivers should not do the English Test if they have experience of 5+ years!

It is scary to think that you may be forced out of a job that you have been doing all your life. My dad has been working as a private hire driver for over 10 years and now he is being forced to take an English test which may result in him losing his job. How can it be right for people who have dedicated themselves to work as private hire drivers for years, to have to undertake and pay for an English test? This is just not fair. That is why I’m calling on Sadiq Khan to stop forcing those with over 5 years experience of working as private hire drivers to do this test. It is true that many of these drivers may not have the best writing skills but they are smart enough to discuss the best route with a passenger, the fare and whatever else the job entails. For example my dad is not the best at written communication which means he may fail the English writing test, however over his 10 years of working as a private hire driver he has had no problem communicating with passengers effectively and the passengers have had no problem understanding him! I am currently a college student, faced with the constant worry that my dad may be out of a job, not being able to put food on our table, and the affect it will have on my future and my family. That is why I’ve started this campaign - to support all private hire drivers, who like my dad are skilled drivers whose livelihoods are being threatened. Let's all stand united and make ourselves heard, our livelihoods hang in the balance! Please sign & share my petition so Sadiq Khan listens!

Stop the plan to build 4 concrete & asphalt factories next to Olympic Park

Last year a planning application was submitted for the creation of London's largest concrete and asphalt factory - right at the centre of the Olympic Park, and in the middle of a dense residential area. This development would have a dramatic impact on the local area and residents, creating 3 concrete batching plants and an Asphalt production plant adjacent to a heavily used green space. The proposed plants, which will be next door to London Athletics and the new UCL East campus, are to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with an estimated 900 heavy vehicles coming and going daily. This will create an industrial blight on the area by introducing significant air, dust and noise pollution to what is otherwise a fast regenerating part of the city. The planning applications have been submitted as four (4) wholly independent operations, without consideration given to their cumulative effects on an area now defined by new residential communities, pedestrian and cycling routes, recreational zones and athletics venues. There is a serious risk that hazardous chemical dust from concrete and asphalt manufacturing activities and associated vehicle fumes will raise air pollution to dangerous levels, resulting in asthma and other respiratory issues for the populations of Newham, Hackney and Tower Hamlets. The full applications can be found on LLDC's planning website at http://planningregister.londonlegacy.co.uk/swift/apas/run/wphappcriteria.display : PA Refs: 15/00368/FUL / 15/00400/FUL / 15/00414/FUL / 16/00194/SCRES]. The proposal is scheduled for review before the London Legacy Development Corporation's (LLDC) planning committee as early as September 27th 2016. The LLDC was given special powers and a remit directly from the Mayor’s office to manage the Olympic Park area regeneration beyond 2012. The LLDC is not directly accountable to local residents in the same way that the councils of Newham, Tower Hamlets or Hackney are. Consequently, the decision making of the LLDC will not always be in the interests of local residents. And it is the LLDC alone that has the final decision on whether this concrete batching development goes ahead. The proposal of the concrete works is completely incompatible with the Mayor's office 'Clean Air for London Policy' or the current direction of residential and other developments planned for the area. In order to protect the integrity and future development of the community, it is of paramount importance that a concerted effort be made by local residents and businesses to oppose this planning proposal NOW.

#SaveHarkersStudio. Stop 110 year old theatrical hub becoming more Luxury Flats.

Dear Petitioner Thank you for the petition submitted on the change.org website about Saving Harkers Studio from becoming luxury flats. I am really saddened that this wonderful historic facility will be lost to the creative industries. The Mayor has made culture one of his top priorities and venues like this are an important part of the cultural ecology of London. We have spoken to Southwark Council but as planning permission was already granted at the end of last year, there is no real opportunity to save this space. At City Hall, we are doing what we can to support creative workspaces and I would urge any organisation wanting help or advice if their space is at risk to get in touch early on.

Save Your Uber in London

Transport for London (TfL) yesterday informed Uber London Limited (Uber) that it will not be issued with a private hire operator licence after expiry of its current licence on 30 September. This decision was made independently by TfL as the legal taxi and private hire regulator for London.    TfL has concluded that Uber’s conduct is not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license. TfL considers that Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrates a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues that have potential public safety and security implications. These include Uber’s approach to reporting serious criminal offences, ‎its approach to how medical certificates are obtained and its approach to how Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks are obtained.  Read more here: http://bit.ly/2yhssmC   I have written for The Guardian about why I have backed TfL’s decision - read more here: http://bit.ly/2hoqQ3B - however, I want to be absolutely clear that there is a place in London for all private hire companies that play by the rules.   Uber’s current license does not expire until the end of September so the service will continue until then. The company can also continue to operate until the appeals process has been exhausted.   I know that Uber has become a popular service for many Londoners – but it would be wrong for TfL to licence Uber if there was any way this could pose a threat to Londoners’ safety or security.   As Mayor of London I welcome innovative new companies that help Londoners by providing a better and more affordable service – but providing an innovative service is not an excuse for not following the rules. All companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect - particularly when it comes to the safety of customers.     I have every sympathy with Uber drivers and customers affected by this decision but their anger really should be directed at Uber. They have let down their drivers and customers by failing, in the view of TfL, to act as a fit and proper operator.  I suspect it will take some time before this situation with Uber fully plays out. In the meantime, I will continue my work to help support innovative businesses in London and to create a vibrant and safe taxi and private hire market.    Sadiq Khan Mayor of London
