Boris Johnson is attempting to curb the neutral powers of the courts when they make decisions that the government does not like. In effect, this means that a government minister can manipulate the law to serve their political agenda, without being challenged at all. This is not democracy and in the face of countless cases of the Govt clearly acting as they wish with no accountability, the idea of this becoming law could have horrific implications.
This is a quite from an article in the Sunday Times ...
"Downing Street is to begin a fresh war with judges, over a plan to let ministers throw out any legal rulings they (the ministers) don't like.
Boris Johnson wants to curtail the power of the courts to overrule decisions by ministers through the process of judicial review. (This was after clashes between the Justices and the Govt over Brexit where the Govt didn't get its way.)
The Prime Minister has ordered Dominic Raab, The Justice Secretary, to toughen powers to reform judges powers to rule on the legality of ministers decisions.
An option is for MP's to pass an annual "Interpretation Bill" to strike out findings from judicial reviews with which the government does not agree.
This petition is to ensure that this does not happen and that the "Interpretation Bill" never comes into law. Please consider the possibilities that an unaccountable government that has constantly shown contempt for the people it represents would have access to, simply because a minister or prime minister does not like it when the law, our law, tells them "No".
By signing this petition, at least we have a chance of stopping it and maintaining a level of "check" on this and every other Government. Read more

Petition to Brian Higgins, New York State House, Andrew M. Cuomo, Kirsten E. Gillibrand, New York State Senate, Catharine Young, New York Times, FOX News, Charles E. Schumer, Adriano Espaillat, Peter T. King, ...
The citizens of New York are facing a bill proposal that will Ban youth tackle football in all of New York state. If we allow this we will be taking away an amazing sport from our children. Football teaches our youth so many great lessons. Teamwork, Determination, sacrifice, work ethic, sportsmanship and so much more. Studies show that concussions do not just occur in football. They can happen in any sport/activity. In fact soccer and cycling have the 2 highest rates of concussions. Youth football teaches kids proper techniques that they will carry with them throughout their career and will lower the chances of injury as they move up in football. Secondly we must not allow our government to dictate to us as parents what choices we can make. That is our right, and if we allow them to take that away what is next? We as parents must be allowed to gather as much information as possible and be allowed to make the choices we see fit for our children. DO NOT let New York state take away our rights. It is time to take a stand and show our government that we will not allow this. Please sign the petition and let's stand together as one large strong NY football family!!!Read more

Petition to Lebanese citizens, Lebanese Government
On Monday, September 2nd, Lebanon's political leaders will convene at the Presidential Palace in Baabda.

This petition aims to call upon the Lebanese government to refrain from adding more taxes and, instead, stop the corruption and unnecessary expenditure to minimize the budget deficit.

Petition to Florida State Senate, Tim Kaine, New York Times, Washington Post, Arizona State Senate
ALEC ( American Legislative Exchange Council) is a private organization founded by conservative Republicans, which allows state legislators and private sector representatives to formulate draft bills and laws that may be passed by states if in favour of the suggestion. Laws such as “Stand Your Ground Law” which protected George Zimmermann in the state of Florida after murdering Trayvon Martin. The voter ID act, made to suppress Indigenous and rural voting. Bill sb 1070 was a bill that was pushed by ALEC that encouraged “legal racial profiling” by state law enforcement. The law allowed officers to ask for legal documentation during an arrest or stop, and apprehend a person based on suspicion of their race, to push towards the “capture” of illegal immigrants in the United States. This organization favours Republican views and the oppression of minority groups, both economical and racial. These model bills are in favour , directly and indirectly, of the biggest issue in the United States, which is Institutional Racism. Though ALEC has much power of the population, financially and politically, the model bills are being passed and they go against civil rights of minority groups in America. Read more

John McDonell has asked for 1'000'000 people to take to the streets of London in protest at the result of the general election. This is totally unacceptable for a senior member of the shadow cabinet and indeed a senior government official. This kind of protest will lead to civil unrest, will undoubtedly will lead to violence against our police officers and other persons involved in the security of London. If one million people did take to the streets would the security services be able to cope if a large group of attendees decided to commit violence against a government minister or security staff assigned to that person. It is factual that the type of groups that will attend this march would include factions that have no respect for UK law and will be dressed and equipped for violence when they leave their homes. The shadow chancellor will be responsible for any injuries, damage or deaths should this march occur. His position is now untenable Read more
