Em Elle started this petition to The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs

The moon is a very special celestial body. It serves important functions such as controlling the rise and fall of the tides, and slowing the rotation of planet Earth. The moon belongs to all of mankind, and no country can claim a celestial body as it's own for any use or occupation. All celestial bodies, including the moon, belong to the ENTIRE mankind of earth (1967 Outer Space Treaty). With the recent moon landing by the Chinese space probe, is it not time that we began to ask some questions, such as "What gives anyone the right to probe and potentially violate our moon?" or "Why is this even considered to be OK?" or "Is this not of some concern to us?" and even, maybe most importantly "Did we give our permission?". Very few places on Earth if any, remain untouched by man, the moon included. It would be nice to be able to just sit and look up at our moon, our good old magical, mysterious moon, and not to imagine there the presence of machinery, of mining, of man. It does, after all, belong to us all. Let it remain a much beloved mystery. So please, leave our moon alone. It's not yours.
