Petition to Demand Bismarck PD Deliver Justice for Anthony
Around the night of March, 29th, Anthony Sonny James White Mountain, a young, kind hearted Indigenious man was hanging out with two friends named Taylor & Montana, later that night something occured where Anthony was brutally attacked, and was attempted to be hung. This person left Anthony for dead, and they got their wishes. Because on the morning of March, 31st, Anthony passed away. Police somewhat spoke to the friends from what i know, but nothing came of it and one of them has deleted all their media and left the state fast. Police barely investigated into Anthony’s case, quickly labeling it a suicide when he had burns on his body, multiple bruises, a broken nose, and so much more. This was done by pure evil.  Anthony did not take his own life, as he wasn’t suicidal. He may have suffered with depression but his brothers and sisters, and close cousins kept him going every single day and kept him alive, they were his rock and held him strong no matter what- and now they’ve had their baby brother/cousin/&friend that they loved so dearly ripped away from them. Please, please sign this petition, spread awareness about Anthony’s story. The media hasn’t covered anything about it, and justice needs to be served. Not only so Anthony can be at peace, but so his family no longer has to suffer as well. The person who did this to Anthony is walking freely when they should be behind bars rotting.. don’t let Anthony be failed. Please sign. Read more

Petition to Rishi Sunak, Thérèse Coffey, Mel Stride
My name is Alison, and I'm a single parent and care worker from Aylesham, Kent. For the first time ever, I'm having to use a foodbank to get enough food to make a decent meal for my teenage daughter and I. I’m working really hard to make ends meet but it’s so difficult with bills and groceries all shooting up almost overnight. My local community hub (Bechange) gets surplus food from the UK’s largest food redistribution charity FareShare, but there’s not enough food to meet the demand that is skyrocketing because of the cost-of-living crisis.  FareShare used to receive funding from the government to redistribute fresh, good to eat food from farmers that would have gone to waste. That funding has been axed, and now the government say it’s not their job to help.  I don’t understand why the government is refusing to help at a time when it’s so difficult for millions of people across the country, especially considering how much good food goes to waste.  At my local hub there’s always someone to talk to about problems, and they also offer cooking courses and exercise classes, as well as the Friday food parcels. I’ve made some lovely friends; and Bechange also has professional keyworkers to help with all sorts of financial planning and benefit advice. I couldn’t survive without them.  At a time of so much need, it’s wrong that there’s so much waste. The government should be doing more to help people during this time of crisis, not ignoring them.  Please sign this petition and join my campaign to get surplus food to people like my daughter and I who need it.Read more

Petition to New York State Legislature
According to the Stop Abuse Campaign, 43,000 children in New York are sexually abused every year, yet 9 out of 10 abusers never see time behind bars.  Year after year, New York State has the opportunity to make it easier for survivors of childhood sexual abuse to take legal action as adults, but the Senate fails to bring the Child Victims Act to the floor for a vote.  New York needs to do better. By passing the Child Victims Act, legal timeframes that currently restrict the ability for victims to bring criminal and civil cases would be greatly extended. Additionally, a one-year revival period would also be created, allowing survivors who were previously barred from bringing a civil claim the ability to bring a new action. Crisis counselors say childhood sexual abuse victims can often take years to process their grief, if they are ever able to process it at all. Under current New York State law, we’re not only failing to give victims the time they need to grieve this unimaginable offense, but we’re allowing abusers the opportunity to commit these tragic acts again. An overwhelming 79% of New Yorkers support the passage of this bill. Now is the time to make your voice heard. If you believe passing the Child Victims Act needs to be a priority in 2018, sign this petition and let your representative know you want them to vote YES on behalf of New York's survivors.    Read more

Dear Prime Minister, We write to ask that you commit the new government you form to resolving a long-running injustice, without further delay. More than a year ago, the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO) found that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) had been guilty of maladministration in communicating changes to the State Pension age to women born in the 1950s. “The opportunity that additional notice would have given [women] to adjust their retirement plans was lost,” the Ombudsman found.  The PHSO has since encouraged the Department for Work and Pensions to be “proactive” in finding a remedy. Women in this age group need to see these proactive steps from government immediately. Every 14 minutes another of us dies waiting for justice. Yet our campaign is falling on deaf ears in Whitehall. The present Pensions Minister resolutely refuses to discuss any of this with us, summarily dismissing our letters, and requests to meet from Members of Parliament. Far from engaging with us, ministers persistently and – we worry – wilfully misrepresent our position, claiming that we are seeking restitution of the State Pension age to 60, or that we wish to recoup ‘lost pensions’ in full.  Media statements from government also imply that the campaign group WASPI are challenging the legality of changes to the State Pension Age. None of these things is true. Our simple, pragmatic ask is that ministers open a dialogue with us about a one-off compensation payment to make up for the financial loss and emotional trauma caused to women born in the 1950s, because of the maladministration at the DWP. As a group of older women, who have contributed much to our country and continue to do so, we regard the previous cabinet’s approach to us as unforgivable. We are, however, hopeful that as the new Prime Minister you will take a more constructive and respectful position. Will you commit publicly to meeting us on this issue, and to finding a fair remedy? Yours, Angela Madden, Chair and Finance Director Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI), WASPI Coordinator Derbyshire; Carole Archibald, WASPI Coordinator Angus; Lynda Armstrong, WASPI Coordinator WASPI International; Susan Bolland, WASPI Coordinator North Ayrshire; Susan Beevers, WASPI Coordinator Northumberland; Sandra Broadbent, WASPI Coordinator Devon; Jane Cowley, WASPI Coordinator Northumberland; Marianne Cowpe, WASPI Coordinator Vale of Glamorgan; Lynne Craighead, WASPI Coordinator Scottish Borders; Rhona Cunningham, WASPI Coordinator Fife; Deborah Dalton, WASPI Coordinator Essex; Debbie de Spon, WASPI Coordinator Norfolk; Ann Edwards, WASPI Coordinator Lancashire; Jan Egan, WASPI Coordinator West Yorkshire; Sheila Forbes, WASPI Coordinator Moray; Flick Foreman, WASPI Coordinator Medway and North-West Kent Ann Fraser, WASPI Coordinator Ayrshire and Arran; Janet Fulster, WASPI Coordinator Greater Manchester; Ann Greer, WASPI Coordinator Argyll and Bute; Sue Harding, WASPI Coordinator WASPI International; Vicky Horton, WASPI Coordinator South Yorkshire; Rosemary Jordan, WASPI Coordinator Lincolnshire; Fiona Lintot, WASPI Coordinator Somerset; Christine Lutley, WASPI Coordinator East Sussex; Carol Mercer, WASPI Coordinator Cheshire; Carol Morley, WASPI Coordinator Hertfordshire; Judi Moss, WASPI Coordinator Suffolk; Frances Neil, WASPI Coordinator, Essex; Denise Neilson, WASPI Coordinator, Newcastle, Wear and Tees; Vanda Nolan, WASPI Coordinator Staffordshire; Delya Randall, WASPI Coordinator Denbighshire; Jill Robertson, WASPI Coordinator Northamptonshire; Yvonne Robinson, WASPI Coordinator Hampshire; Gill Saul, WASPI Coordinator Brighton and Sussex; Lorraine Scott, WASPI Coordinator Newcastle; Karen Sheldon, WASPI Coordinator Suffolk; Margaret Shields, WASPI Coordinator Argyll and Bute; Shelagh Simmons, WASPI Coordinator Solent; Carol Smith, WASPI Coordinator Devon; Christine Smith, WASPI Coordinator Newcastle, Wear and Tees; Anne Todd, WASPI Coordinator NE Hampshire; Debra Wailes, WASPI Coordinator Lancashire.Read more

There are fewer publicly available water fountains in London than there were in Ancient Rome. Following the recent local elections, constituents want to see environmental promises delivered. Councils should start by responding to Ocean Bottle’s campaign for more water bottle refill stations. Research published this year found there are less than 500 local authority operated refill stations in London. That’s approximately 19,000 Londoners to each water fountain, and it’s worse across the rest of the UKI. [1] Today, three quarters of Britons can go a full day without seeing a water fountain in their area. As the country faces both a climate and cost-of-living crisis Britons should not be forced to spend money on pre-packaged plastic bottles to stay hydrated. Britons spend approximately 1.6 billion British pounds per year on bottled water, much of which is imported from overseas. As a result, some 5.5 billion plastic bottles are littered, landfilled or incinerated each year, contributing 233,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This happens despite a recent Ocean Bottle survey finding 78 percent of people in the UK own a reusable water bottle, with 58 percent finding themselves frustrated due to the lack of places to refill them. The UK needs a network of free water refill points in public spaces for citizens to have easy access to refill on-the-go, and stem unnecessary plastic purchases. Amid a cost of living crisis and as the impacts of climate change continue to be felt, with temperatures this summer set to soar to record highs, the time to act is now. With the help of central government funding, local councils must install a comprehensive network of refill spots across the UK. [1] This is according to FOI requests sent to all London councils in January 2023. Data excludes Haringey Council, which failed to respond to the FOI.Read more
