Target: Withdraw Grand Theft Auto 5 – this sickening game encourages players to commit sexual violence and kill women

It's a game that encourages players to murder women for entertainment. The incentive is to commit sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get 'health' points – and now Target are stocking it and promoting it for your Xmas stocking. This is Grand Theft Auto 5. This game means that after various sex acts, players are given options to kill women by punching her unconscious, killing with a machete, bat or guns to get their money returned.  Please Target – we appeal to you as women survivors of violence, including women who experienced violence in the sex industry, to immediately withdraw Grand Theft Auto V from sale. One of many fan clips on YouTube shows the woman being run down, run over, set alight and, still screaming, repeatedly shot. This misogynistic GTA 5 literally makes a game of bashing, killing and horrific violence against women. It also links sexual arousal and violence. We have firsthand experience of this kind of sexual violence. It haunts us, and we've been trying to rebuild our lives ever since. Just knowing that women are being portrayed as deserving to be sexually used by men and potentially murdered for sport and pleasure – to see this violence that we lived through turned into a form of entertainments is sickening and causes us great pain and harm. This game spreads the idea that certain women exist as scapegoats for male violence. It shows hatred and contempt for women in the sex industry and puts them at greater risk. Women in the industry are 40 times more likely to be murdered by a man than any other group of women.  Games like this are grooming yet another generation of boys to tolerate violence against women. It is fuelling the epidemic of violence experienced by so many girls and women in Australia - and globally. Target, you pride yourself on being a family company, caring for local communities, and have a strong ethical sourcing policy. How can you do this while contributing to hostile and callous attitudes toward victims of violence and, more broadly, to all women? We urge you to follow the example set by the New Zealand’s largest retailer, NZ Warehouse Group, in upholding Corporate Social Responsibility and ethical corporate leadership, by removing these games.  This would also set an example to other stockists of GTA V. Please put ethics before profits and make a strong statement that you do not condone sexual violence, sexual exploitation or the abuse of women as ‘entertainment’.  Nicole, Claire and Kat

Gaza is collapsing..where are the human rights..

Gaza, a small Palestinian city, where more than two million people live! Besieged from all sides, from land, sea, and air, "Arab, Israeli and American siege." Small Gaza where Palestinians are living refugees who have been displaced from their country occupied by Israel. There are thousands of patients and humanitarian cases need to travel for treatment, all crossings are closed. No travel, no life, nothing, everything collapses,Where are human rights, where are international organizations, where are international courts!Gaza has gone through three wars "2008, 2009, 2012,2014".Every day the children, women and men of Palestine are subjected to arrest, murder and displacement!Palestinian resistance is a legitimate right of the Palestinian people of all kinds. The Palestinian resistance must be supported in order to defend the Palestinian people and repel the occupation.There must be a united position in order to stand by besieged Gaza.The pictures and videos that are published every day summarize the story of pain and pain there.We must stop supporting the Israeli occupation that commits massacres against the Palestinian people.Gaza deserves life, Gaza deserves full support, Gaza deserves to defend it.The occupation must leave the land of the Palestinians.You must move to stand before your responsibilities towards Gaza and the oppressed people of Palestine.

new anthem for straya'

Advance Australia fair is out-dated, and is no longer a banger and relevant to the younger generations of aussies.We need to change the anthem to a timeless classic and banger. After hours of searching we have come to the conclusion that, John Farnham's, "You're the voice", is the best option for this as it gets everyone turnt like they just popped three pinggaz. After dear considerations and hard work we've tested this at our local sporting events and the responses we received were much greater then that of Advance Australia Fair. Imagine the 2020 Olympics, when the aussies march out to this certified banger, all the other countries will be like "Fuck, check out theses sick cunts!". That is how we want other countries to view us, as loose units not uptight old cunts.The changing of the anthem, will distance us from the UK and help our country establish our own identity. This change will likely bring about the immigration of many to our great land, doctors will get sick of their country and when they have a google of other countries they'll hear our anthem and be like " aye, these cunts are loose as!". All Australians will benefit from this change as it is a happy change that will lead to discoveries of self worth and value. This change will increase the quality of life for everyone through out our great nation. ALSO FUCK PAULINE HANSON

Target: Withdraw Grand Theft Auto 5 – this sickening game encourages players to commit sexual violence and kill women

Target Australia will stop selling the R-rated video game Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA5) following feedback from customers about the game's depictions of violence against women. Target General Manager Corporate Affairs Jim Cooper said the decision was made following extensive community and customer concern about the game. "We've been speaking to many customers over recent days about the game, and there is a significant level of concern about the game's content," Mr Cooper said. "We've also had customer feedback in support of us selling the game, and we respect their perspective on the issue. "However, we feel the decision to stop selling GTA5 is in line with the majority view of our customers." Mr Cooper said Target would continue to sell other R-rated DVDs and games. "While these products often contain imagery that some customers find offensive, in the vast majority of cases, we believe they are appropriate products for us to sell to adult customers. "However, in the case of GTA5, we have listened to the strong feedback from customers that this is not a product they want us to sell."
