Free Nazanin Ratcliffe

My wife Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 37 year old charity worker, was on holiday visiting her family in Iran. She was at the airport returning to the UK on the 3rd April when she was detained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. She has been transferred to an unknown location in Kerman Province, 1,000 kilometres south of Tehran, and is being held in solitary confinement. Gabriella Ratcliffe our 22 month old daughter (who has British citizenship only) has had her British passport confiscated, and is stranded in Iran with her grandparents. Nazanin has not been allowed to access a lawyer or her daughter. She has not been able to call out of the country to speak to me, her British husband, and the Red Cross have not been able to make contact. There have been no charges. Nazanin has informed her family that she has been required to sign a confession under duress, its content unknown. Her family have been informed that the investigation relates to an issue of ‘national security’. It is hard to understand how a young mother and her small child on holiday could be considered an issue of national security. She has been to Iran to visit her family regularly since making Britain her home. Nazanin currently works as a project manager for the Thomson-Reuters Foundation; which delivers charitable projects around the world. It does not work in Iran. Nazanin has now been in solitary confinement for over 30 days. Please help bring my wife and daughter home by signing my petition calling on our Prime Minister Theresa May to use her power and intervene.

Give People a Final Say on Brexit Deal

Regardless of how you voted in the Brexit referendum, you deserve a say on the final deal. That’s why we’re launching the Final Say campaign, to win for the British people the right to make that all-important decision on the Brexit deal. Come what may in the months ahead, we maintain our commitment to our readers to retain balance and present many different points of view. But on this subject we believe a referendum on the final deal is right. We believe there are three reasons: 1. The people, on both sides of the debate, are losing faith with the current process. From Theresa May to Parliament as a whole, a chaotic approach has delivered infighting, resignations and party politics, but little progress on the key issues that people care about. 2. The people on both sides should have the chance to finish what they started. With reality coming into focus, it’s only natural to check this future is what people really want. After years of negotiations behind closed doors, the people must not be shut out of the final decision. 3. The people – on both sides – know so much more now than we did in 2016. The campaigns – again, on both sides – were flawed and clouded by misinformation. Many myths have been exposed. Now we must check there is support for the facts of Brexit. A full account of The Independent's view is available here. In 2016, the people were given their say on the principle of whether to stay in the EU or leave. Now the facts are becoming clearer, it’s time for the people to have the final say on the real deal – before it’s too late.

Jerusalem must remain the capital of Palestine القدس يجب أن تبقى عاصمة فلسطين

Donald Trump is expected to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The move will break long-time US policy and potentially stir unrest, not only in the Middle East but around the world. Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem in 1967 and subsequent occupation of the area is still considered illegal by the United Nations. This announcement could spark controversy and provoke violence across the world and fan flames of militancy. It will also break decades of diplomacy and disrupt the Arab-Israeli peace talks. Help us stop this declaration. 1967 borders must be respected and Jerusalem must remain the capital of Palestine. من المتوقع ان يعلن دونالد ترامب القدس عاصمة لاسرائيل. هذه الخطوة ستكسر سياسة الولايات المتحدة وتزيد من الاضطراب، ليس فقط في الشرق الأوسط ولكن في جميع أنحاء العالم. لا يزال يعتبر ضم إسرائيل للقدس الشرقية في عام 1967 والاحتلال اللاحق للمنطقة غير قانوني من جانب الأمم المتحدة. هذا الإعلان قد يثير الجدل ويثير العنف في جميع أنحاء العالم ويشعل نيران من التطرف. كما انه سيكسر عقود من الدبلوماسية ويعرقل محادثات السلام العربية الاسرائيلية. ساعدنا في إيقاف هذا الإعلان. القدس يجب أن تبقى عاصمة فلسطين

Justice for Chunky - stop people who abuse animals from owning ever again

This petition is for Chunky the Chihuahua who was attacked for hours in what the RSPCA called one of the most disturbing cases of animal abuse they had ever seen. Chunky was, over a period of hours, beaten and drugged, his neck was broken, he was set on fire and finally he was dumped and left for dead. Despite serious injury, and against all odds, Chunky lived. The people who committed this abuse were only banned from keeping animals for five years. As an animal lover, who once owned a dog just like Chunky, I found this story highly upsetting. What shocked me is that these abusers and others like them will be able to own an animal again one day. There’s nothing to prevent them doing this again. I'm asking that anyone who abuses animals, regardless of their age, be placed on an Animal Cruelty Register which would follow them for life. In some states in the US they already have animal abuse registries. If this had happened in New York these abusers would have to sign onto an animal abuse list that would prevent them from ownership of animals. The UK need to introduce a similar law. A five year ban is not sufficient-- it is hard to implement in practice and why do we assume abusers attitudes will have changed after a few years? Our legal system should have an animal abuse list so that we are aware of people who have mistreated animals.  Please sign this petition for an animal abuse register. Let's get justice for dogs like Chunky.

Pay student nurses minimum living wage

I’m a Student Nurse - I love what I do, I love everyone I’ve met on placement, and more than anything, I love the people that make up the NHS. But in all honesty being a nurse is a real struggle, and being a student nurse, having to work 37.5 hours a week and paid nothing, is even harder. As a student we need to make up 2,300 clinical hours of hospital hours, as stated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, so that we can join the register. Other, more traditional degrees don’t require this. I love the practical experience I get, but the fact that we aren’t paid makes it feel like we’re just free labour for the NHS. Bursaries for nurses have been scrapped. Many of us are working part time, some even full time hours, as well as the 37.5 hours of placement, just to get some money coming in. I’m doing my placement hours but also working on the side, most of the time doing 6 day weeks sometimes 7 day weeks just to get by. A lot has been said about mental health awareness in recent months, especially for university students - the number of suicides in universities is rising. These statistic resonate with me because the amount of work I do to get by is a big strain on my mental health, the stress, the financial worry, the lack of rest. That’s I’m calling for a minimum living wage for all student nurses, to ensure we aren’t wearing ourselves out, putting not only ourselves at risk but also the patients we come across day to day.
