Petition to King's College London, King’s College London
I am a disabled student studying at Kings who cannot access my department.  You may not know this if you are an able-bodied person, but Kings is very inaccessible for someone in a wheelchair. I cannot even access rooms in my own department due to this.  There are many issues around the lack of care and support for disabled students at Kings, but there is one in particular that I would like to draw your attention to: I have been fighting for over a YEAR for a simple ramp to be put in over a couple of steps so that I can have access to my lecture rooms. The uni have failed to do this. Nothing has been done in the year I've been fighting, and there are no plans to place a ramp either. This means half of the rooms in my own department are out-of-bounds for me (and only me. Every single other course mate of mine, that I'm aware of, is able to access these rooms whenever they like). The only difference between us? I use a wheelchair. I can also only access a handful of practise rooms, whereas other students can access all 30+. The fact that Kings won't even fit a ramp, despite my constant requests, says a lot about how much they value disabled students.  I understand that change takes time, but disabled students do not deserve this discrimination. We need to start making changes now.  If you agree and want to help your fellow disabled students, both those studying now and those who will come in the future, then please sign this petition and show that we will not just sit and let this discrimination happen (well, I will be sitting...in my wheelchair...but you get the point)!

Petition to Ted Sarandos
Dear Ted,As Chief content officer for Netflix I feel as though I would be remiss not to bring to your attention a new piece of content that would serve Netflix & it's viewers well.The Documentary 'Dominion' is a MASTERPIECE & should be included on Netflix as soon as it is released worldwidewide on April 29th 2018.I believe it will rank highly on Netflix & will share a similar level of success to that which was enjoyed by 'Cowspiracy' & 'What The Health'. 'Dominion' has a broad scope as a comprehensive account of the numerous ways animals are used and abused in AUSTRALIA (& other western countries)... By exploring six primary facets of our interaction with animals - Companion Animals, Wildlife, Scientific Research, Entertainment, Clothing and Food - the film questions the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom. Drawing heavily from the Aussie Farms Repository so as to contain the most recent, highest-quality footage from across the country, Dominion makes use of emerging technologies, such as aerial drones, to capture new perspectives and examine the wider context of animal exploitation upon our landscape and within our society.Written & Directed by Chris Delforce after the success of his first exposé 'Lucent', Dominion is set to be a real game changer & it would be fantastic to have Netflix to thank as part of the success story. Dominionmovement.com Warm Regards, Matt Stellino - Netflix customer.Read more

We person with disabilities -Wheelchair users are always facing accessibility challenges to toilets in public events. Our human rights are overlooked in provisions of disabled portable/mobile toilets.  Public events must provide equal access to portable/mobile toilets for people with disabilities(Wheelchair users), to the same standard as a non-disabled people. Joint operations committees must include disabled portable/mobile toilets as priority requirements.  We wheelchair users love attending public events.  Read more

Petition to Doug Ford
Sign this petition to urge Premier Doug Ford to provide free N95/KN95 respirators to every household in Ontario. COVID is airborne, the Omicron variant is here and COVID-19 cases are rising by the day. Cloth masks and surgical masks are helpful for droplet transmission but inadequate for aerosol. Respirators are instrumental in protecting the wearer by filtering the air we breathe, to help stop breathing in the airborne virus. Respirators also help stop the spread of COVID-19 as they provide asymptomatic people from spreading the virus through the air.  For these reasons, they need to be made available to every Ontario resident. The cost of N95s/KN95s can be financially prohibitive for many Ontarians.  Nurses, doctors, personal support workers, teachers, childcare providers, bus and taxi drivers, grocers, ALL members of the public need access to N95s. Medical and science experts are calling for free N95s/KN95s for Ontario residents. Time for Premier Ford to listen and follow the science!  Dr Nili Kaplan-Myrth, MD, CCFP, PhD and Debra Lefebvre, RN, BN Read more
