Muslim concentration camps in China

Problem(PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO READ EVERYTHING IT WILL TAKE A MAXIMUM OF 6 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME.) China is putting muslims into internment (concentration) camps and no one is doin anything about it. They have detained over a million Uyghurs and other turkic muslims they are forced to denounce islam and pledge allegiance to the chinese state. Methods of torture are being used against them in exchange for any attempt of resistance (teeth pulled out, nails pulled out, snakes being used for "interrogation", beaten till dead, sterilisation, clamped down on a chair hours on end in solitary confinement). Muslims are being sent there for random reasons, any signs that they practice any aspect of islam or have any foreign relations. People are watched so closely that there are Han government caterers that are living in the Uyghur homes. Children are sent to boarding schools where they are taught to hate their own identity, their own religion and are subject to abuse. Parents dont know where their kids are. So why is China doing this to Uyghur and Turkic muslims specifically? East Turkestan is really rich in minerals and resources; by putting people into camps and basically carrying out an ethnic cleansing, china is attempting to maintain tight control over the mineral-rich land. Why has the world been so quiet about this situation? China has tightly controlled it's media so a lot of whats happening can not really be seen by the rest of the world (One of the main reasons why muslims with foreign contact are being detained is so there is no one to contact foreigners). Even when people/government know about it they are forced to keep silent due to chinese pressure and their economic and strategic ties to the country.Solution1. Raise awareness that this is happening because right now most of the world has no idea about this. 2. Pressure your government leaders to acknowledge chinese occupation of east Turkestan and its systematic campaign to wipe out the Uyughurs and other people of East Turkestan.3. Support your local Uyghur communities, they're in dire need of international support.4. Come out to their protests, organise protests in front of Chinese embassies and bodies that can acctually take action to challenge China's ethnic cleansing of the Uyghurs. Personal storyIts the humane thing to do.

'Virtual Fences' in the UK to Lessen Roadkill and Road Traffic Accidents

ProblemIn 2016-2017 it was reported that more than 3900 animals were killed on the roads in the United Kingdom (Confused.com, 2018). This is 3900 too many. Even more so when you take into account that this only the animals which are reported as roadkill. Have you ever reported roadkill which you've seen? No. Therefore, this number is likely to be much, much larger. Road signs such as, "Animals Crossing" are not effective- drivers simply ignore them. Speed bumps don't work either as they disrupt traffic and result in NIMBYist feelings. However, there is a solution, and it comes from Tasmania...SolutionIn Tasmania, on one stretch of road, there are 'virtual fences', which detect car movement, and animal movement, and when they correspond to one-another, lets out a high frequency sound and flashing lights- which is completely inaudible, and invisible to the driver. This results in the animal being "spooked", and not crossing the road, or it does cross, just when it is safe to do so.Too many people have crashed, or died, in their cars by trying to avoiding wildlife. This simple tool will help to reduce this. In Tasmania this device reduced roadkill by 50%- so fewer animals died, fewer cars were crashed, and fewer people died- a mutually beneficial device to prevent unnecessary deaths.#DontBeOnTheFence Please Share this petition in whatever way you can: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, word of mouth, so that one day this will become commonplace in the UK. If you want to learn more about the 'virtual fences' information can be found at:  https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/australia-virtual-fence-roadkill/   or... Fox, et al., (2018), Roadkill mitigation: trialing virtual fence devices on the west coast of Tasmania, Australian Mammalogy, https://doi.org/10.1071/AM18012 Personal storyMy name is Sam, I am 20 years old, and am currently studying Geography at university. I wanted to set up this petition because when I saw this idea I thought that it should be utilised everywhere- not just hidden away in Tasmania. If it can reduce road traffic accidents, or roadkill even slightly then surely it would be a success?

Lower the age of a "SMEAR" test to 20+ from 25!! THIS IS OUR BODY! AND OUR FUTURE

I have done some research recently which indicates that women under 25 are STILL likely to get cervical cancer even though the chances are slim. (IT IS STILL POSSIBLE!)  I would like you to lower the age from 25 to 20+ as this is the right age range in which to get tested against this cancer.  We as women have a right to prevent all possibilities of getting cancer, As this is our body and we want to protect it at all cost.  And if it was that person in the percentage that did have cervical cancer between the ages of 20-25 they should.. AS HUMANS have a right to have access to treatment and not be turned away because they aren't "of age" and when they do FINALLY get tested at age 25 like the doctors recommend, it is too late. So if it is a risk to perform a smear on women younger than 25.. Why do you carry out abortions to those under 25? Even those under 18? And the procedure in which the female goes under anesthetic and the fetus gets suctioned from the mothers uterus. That in its self poses a higher risk to the female body, in some cases even death on the table.  But you still as a country carry out abortions to women ages between 14+? But cannot provide women tests to check their health?  MORE needs to be done to protect our bodies. Checking only at the age 25 is so bizarre. For some people it is too late by the time, And we should be able to prevent that by being able to get a diagnosis sooner. Just to be safe. We have rights and we demand all women younger than 25 to get checked for cervical cancer! And be offered treatment they deserve. Sooner. We are the future. We have a choice!!

Jadens Law: A halt to school exclusions until a suitable alternative education is given.

Jaden Moodie was an intelligent 14 year old boy who was brutally murdered on the 8th January 2019. His life was cut short, some would say he had his whole life ahead of him, yes he did indeed. Jadens school education was also cut short due to the racial systematic system that our children are forced to join. Redhill Academy in Nottingham was the first secondary school to exclude Jaden multiple times until his mother made a decision to take him out of mainstream education to be home schooled. Heathcote Secondary School in London was the second secondary school to exclude Jaden. Heathcote excluded Jaden for an incident that occurred outside of school. They failed to address the situation which lasted 10 seconds and the mother was not made aware of his exclusion.  Statistics have shown that Heathcote in 2019 has had a high level of exclusion rates.  According to a press release in September 2018, 'In London there has been a 26% increase in exclusion rates in the last 3 years. Studies have shown young people who have previously been excluded temporarily or permanently from school are more likely to be drawn into crime'. Both schools reasons for excluding Jaden were "very trivial " in Jadens Mothers opinion. The schools should have worked with Jaden and his family to ensure he was provided with education. On both occasions no alternative education was provided after being excluded from school. Now the whole world knows what it is like to homeschool a child whilst working. This is just a fraction as to how much pressure Jadens mother was under.  We demand nationally clear guidelines for schools and alternative provisions to follow before a child/young person is excluded from school. For example working alongside grass roots organisations, mentors, parents and the community in order to support and keep children in school. It is essential to fill the gap of learning when children have been excluded with a high standard of education provision. This gap was detrimental in Jadens case and resulted in him losing his life through knife crime. These new set of guidelines will be referenced as Jadens Law. Please support Jaden Moodie and his family to get 100,000 signatures to prevent another child from tragically losing their life. www.jadenmoodie.org

Save Our Summer at Low Hall

Update: 7 May 2021 Secret Cinema have 'postponed' their events on Low Hall Playing Fields due to 'Covid-19'. Thank you for signing and sharing this petition and for believing that if you are right, you can win. We were and we did. Our community campaign won't stop here. During Covid-19 and beyond, Waltham Forest Council must protect vital open green space for community, sport and recreation. We will keep our petition open. Councillor Clare Coghill has been asked to respond to these 5 key concerns on our report which she was first sent on 19 April 2021. We have had no response. When we get one, we will publish Councillor Coghill's response here and on all our channels:https://savelowhall.wordpress.com@low_save Meanwhile, have a lovely summer on Low Hall Playing Fields. What happened? In the midst of this pandemic, Waltham Forest Council had planned to hire out Low Hall playing fields to Secret Cinema for large-scale private events with audiences of 5 thousand a day, ticketed at £49/£89. The events would subject the site to heavy industrial use and would mean our community would not have been able to use the site as intended for team sport, well-being and recreation over the entire summer. It would also have caused overcrowding in our borough and the neighbouring green spaces of Hackney, Tottenham and Leyton. Thousands in our community had objected formally including; ward councillors, grassroots sports teams, headteachers, schools, governing bodies, residents and individuals. Thousands more have not been consulted and will not know that this was planned.  Our cause was supported by The Mayor of London and the GLA, who assured us that “The concerns that you have raised will need to be addressed by Waltham Forest Council in order for the application to be approved by The Mayor of London.”  We circulated the above statement from the GLA, this petition, report and a film message produced by our grassroots teams to key decision makers. It was sent to Councillor Clare Coghill for a response and to all Waltham Forest Council Leaders including our Director of Public Health, Joe McDonnell. We also sent it to the Board and Executive teams of relevant sectors. The CEO of Sport England and the CEO of Waltham Forest Council responded to us.Why do we care? Health Inequalities in Waltham Forest increase our risk of death during Covid-19 Low Hall Playing Fields are situated in a densely populated, 52.8% BAME and low income area of Walthamstow, North East London. The playing field is operated by Waltham Forest Council. Although the site has not been well maintained, hundreds of grassroots teams, families, individuals and informal groups regularly use the space for football, cricket, sport and recreation. Covid-19 has caused unprecedented disruption to our team sports and to our mental and physical health. Our borough has had a higher than average death rate compared with the rest of London. The Covid-19 Marmot Report revealed that Health Inequalities for those living in densely populated, low-income and BAME communities meant they were more likely to die in this pandemic. Addressing issues like access to community green spaces or sports facilities are known factors which can help to prevent excess deaths in this pandemic. Subsequently the Health Inequalities Strategy (GLA) and Public Service Strategy (LBWF) were written to address these issues. However, Waltham Forest Council has directly contravened these pledges, strategies and directives in their handling of this application.

Action Against Priory Court Housing Development

Action against the housing development in Priory court, Walthamstow. Priory Court Estate has been providing homes to families in Walthamstow since 1946, when it was constructed as provision for families who needed new homes after WWII. Families reported feeling proud of the large rooms and modern kitchens in the estate; but more importantly, children growing up on the estate (as well as their families) reported how much the community on the estate meant to them. Amenities originally included shops, a youth club, and a GP as well as the current community centre and nursery. Most of these amenities were lost when the council redeveloped the estate during the 1990's as part of a refurbishment scheme for the aging flats. Since that redevelopment, residents have reported feeling increasingly under-resourced and crowded, while violent crime and anti-social behaviour has been steadily increasing on the estate. Residents complain that police presence is minimal and infrastructure is failing to be maintained and express a great desire for more accessible green space. Now, Waltham Forest Council is proposing another redevelopment. The new plans revolve around adding 120 new flats to the estate while squeezing the community centre and nursery into the same building and eliminating nearly all the remaining green space on the estate. Worse, the new flats will mostly be sold at market price or on shared ownership schemes, despite the estate's long history of being predominantly social rent. Residents have expressed deep concerns about the effect this redevelopment will have on their access to transportation, air quality and general well-being on the estate. Safeguarding concerns surrounding plans to adjoin the nursery to the community centre have not been addressed, and no information exists on the environmental impact of destroying the estates trees and green space as well as adding so many new households to an already densely populated area. Residents of Priory Court want their needs to be taken into account in the redevelopment of their home. In particular: - Environmental Sustainability: Waltham Forest Council has declared a Climate Emergency, but has indicated no research or planning to offset the environmental impact of this new construction and has given no assurances regarding air-quality and access to green space for residents. Verbal feedback from councilors has suggested increased landscaping (which is detrimental to the environment) and using nearby allotments as greenspace despite their complete unsuitability and inaccessibility for children and most members of the community. - Community Infrastructure: Priory Court Community Centre offers invaluable services throughout the week to the estate and surrounding neighbourhoods. These include a Baby Bank to support low-income families, a youth club, therapy groups and support groups for the socially isolated. The council has not produced plans for space to continue these services while the new community centre is being built and has not guaranteed that the proposed new community centre will be of comparable size or utility to the existing one. The same is true for the much-beloved nursery, including its outdoor space which has been creatively developed by residents.

Prosecute Adnan Khalid - Chingford Car Sales Ltd

Hi Everyone, I am writing this petition to stop Adnan Khalid (who uses the fake name Danish, Danny or Adam) - owner of RS Car Sales Ltd (previously Lea Bridge Motors) to stop selling vehicles as they are not of satisfactory quality to be bought. The whole family - Adnan Khalid, his brother Khuram Khalid (uses the fake name Khan) and father Chaudhury Hussain have been selling faulty cars and putting lives at risk for well over the past 9 years under different businesses based around Rosebank Road and Russell Road in Walthamstow. They have been closing previous businesses and opening up new businesses to avoid legal action - please see the list of their current and past businesses below: RS Car Sales Ltd Chingford Car Sales Ltd (owned by brother Usman Khalid) Lea Bridge Motors Ltd BD Trade Sales Ltd Blue Diamond Cars Ltd Bluegate Cars Ltd Stargate Cars Ltd Blue Diamond Autos Ltd Blue Diamond Motors Ltd BN Motors Ltd I recently bought a car from here and as soon as I bought it, the car had major engine, gearbox and internal problems that made it literally impossible to drive. I am in process of fixing these issues which have cost me a lot of money. Adnan Khalid has refused to answer any of my calls/texts and emails. This has caused me a lot of stress and pain, I would have hoped that buying from a dealership - the car would be safe to drive. I have discovered that it has been on a programme called "The Sheriffs Are Coming" - which I wish I had seen before I bought the car. https://youtu.be/4i2cvrLMU8Y This is when they were known as "Bluegate Cars" - see the full episode of Dont Get Done, Get Dom - Second Hand Cars below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YsBriwwW28 It goes to show that they con people and change their business name to try and get away with it. They have changed their name over 8 times in the past decade (as mentioned above). Adnan has just recently (15/05/2019) been on BBC Watch Dog on Rogue traders - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/3Qmqv4tYbwNxwVg02zRKDN4/leabridge-motors-limited https://youtu.be/ZhYx46Iysfs I have also done my research and a lot of people have had similar issues to me with this dealership. For example - https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4642189&page=2 https://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/10782799.salesman-called-dodgy-car-perfect-family-vehicle/ Khuram Khalid (Adnan's brother - known as Khan) and father Chowdhury Khalid Husain had an altercation in the middle of a flight - see news article below: https://onemileatatime.com/qatar-airways-diversion-fight/ Please can you share this so that no one else buys from this trader. I am very shocked that they are still allowed to trade. I would hope my petition would help to get Adnan Khalid and his family are prosecuted so no one else would suffer. It has also been noted that the older brother Kamran Khalid has also been involved in dodgy car dealerships - please see the article below: https://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/15790223.jailed-conman-who-posed-as-showroom-owner-and-tricked-man-into-paying-1850-for-car-in-chingford/
