Petition to Government of The Gambia;, Speaker of the National Assembly.
THE PLANET's FUTURE DEPENDS ON CHILDREN's EDUCATION AND MORE...
The Gambia is a small country in West Africa, which includes the Island of Saint Mary, at the mouth of the Gambia, where the capital, Banjul, stands, and James Island, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is known for its diverse ecosystems around the central Gambia River and for its abundant wildlife in Kiang West National Park and Bao Bolong Pantanal Reserve, which includes monkeys, leopards, hippos, hyenas and rare birds. However, there is still a lot of poverty, especially in rural areas. We know that - along with education - housing, basic sanitation, health and good nutrition are necessary for children to have a healthy life and a good level of learning. These basis are fundamental not only for efficient learning, but for any child to acquire a feeling of respect and love for their surroundings. And love teaches us to respect the space of other species that have been losing their habitat to us, humans. The Gambia's biodiversity is incredibly good not only for the planet, but for the country itself, because, in addition to providing valuable quality of life for Gambians, it promotes tourism, which represents an important segment of The Gambia's economy. Considering these issues, we ask The Gambian Government to expand investments in affordable housing, basic sanitation, health and education - also implementing a universal basic income for vulnerable people: requiring, however, a vasectomy and/or endoceptive for those who already have one child (two children per couple) and want to benefit from the income. We also ask a lifetime fine to the middle and upper classes, proportional to income, from the third child onwards - in order to help supply these needs and to protect the gorgeous environment of The Gambia. The planet needs to breathe and all humans need quality of life - including Gambians. Thank you for your support! Angela May, Buba Manneh and Fabakary Sanneh

Petition to Federal Government of Nigeria;, Speaker of the House of Representatives of Nigeria.
THE PLANET's FUTURE DEPENDS ON CHILDREN's EDUCATION AND MORE...
Nigeria, often called the "Giant of Africa", is a patchwork of distinctive regions, including deserts, plains, swamps, mountains, and steamy jungles. High on Nigeria's southern mountains, the slopes are covered by thick rain forest. This is the home of rare western lowland gorillas, once thought to be extinct in Nigeria. The "Giant of Africa" has one of the largest river systems in the world, including the Niger Delta, the third largest delta on Earth. Much of Nigeria is covered with plains and savannas, where, many years ago, teemed with giraffes, elephants, lions, cheetahs, and large herds of antelope. Nowadays, most of these animals have been killed by hunters or their habitats have been destroyed. "Nigeria's diverse landscape makes it ideal for a broad range of plants and animals. Many species live nowhere else on Earth. Unfortunately there aren't very many national parks in Nigeria and competition for space with humans has left many species on the endangered list.". Descriptions obtained in https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/countries/nigeria/#:~:text=Nigeria%20is%20a%20patchwork%20of,covered%20with%20plains%20and%20savannas and photo from https://borgenproject.org/10-facts-about-poverty-in-nigeria/?fbclid=IwAR2FXbpx89ejCAy8VelI5gxDpZtbz117H71bveRO9mpq96SbH84FWz4scNo The amazing southwestern plains are home to the Yoruba people, who have lived there for thousands of years. However, 40% of Nigeria's population still live in poverty, as in most developing countries. We know that - along with education - housing, basic sanitation, health and good nutrition are necessary for children to have a healthy life and a good level of learning. These basis are fundamental not only for efficient learning, but for any child to acquire a feeling of respect and love for their surroundings. And love teaches us to respect the space of other species that have been losing their habitat to us, humans. The Nigeria's biodiversity is incredibly good not only for the planet, but for the country itself, because, in addition to providing valuable quality of life for Nigerians, it promotes tourism, which can represent an important segment of Nigeria's economy. Considering these issues, we ask the Federal Government of Nigeria to expand investments in affordable housing, basic sanitation, health and education - also implementing a universal basic income for vulnerable people: requiring, however, a vasectomy and/or endoceptive for those who already have one child (two children per couple) and want to benefit from the income. We also ask a lifetime fine to the middle and upper classes, proportional to income, from the third child onwards - in order to help supply these needs and to protect the gorgeous environment of Nigeria.

THE PLANET's FUTURE DEPENDS ON CHILDREN's EDUCATION AND MORE...
PT Brazil is known for its varied biodiversity, called the greatest collection of plant and animal species found on the planet, housing 60% of the Amazon Rainforest which hosts approximately one-tenth of all the species in the world. "Anyone who has been to the Amazon will tell you that nothing quite compares to the sounds of the jungle at night, where nature reigns supreme and those who visit the Pantanal are amazed by the sheer quantity of birds and mammals you can see. While these are two specific areas for wildlife viewing in Brazil, opportunities to get out into nature and see wildlife are by no means restricted to these areas.", as said in https://www.thesouthamericaspecialists.com/what-to-do/nature-and-wildlife/brazil However, there is still a lot of poverty all around the country. We know that - along with education - housing, basic sanitation, health and good nutrition are necessary for children to have a healthy life and a good level of learning. These basis are fundamental not only for efficient learning, but for any child to acquire a feeling of respect and love for their surroundings. And love teaches us to respect the space of other species that have been losing their habitat to us, humans. In a deeply Christian country, it is worth reflecting on the commandment to multiply and fill the Earth: God said us to fill the Earth, but He gave us wisdom to realize that the Earth was already full by the time we started to take the place of His other important creatures. And we must value God's creation. It is also worth imagining how much we would still have of forests if China had not implemented strict birth control. The human being must stop thinking about himself and his own offspring. Everyone must think about Nature - and the poorest should still think in their first two children, avoiding a third one. If humble people themselves do not think about their own children, they cannot expect others to do so. In fact, in this way, they often end up making cheap labor available for enrichment with the sweat of others. The sad past of slavery is enough, when women were forced to have several children to serve "their masters". Thinking about quality of life, we must consider that we are already in need of transgenic food to feed the overpopulation, in addition to more pesticides for less losses - while the richest may opt for organic foods. Besides that, scientists have alerted that around 33% of worldwide plant and animal life could disappear by 2070 if nations don't act to reign in global carbon emissions - and if it continues unabated as they have for the last few decades, the species extinction rate could jump to 55%. Tragically, it may be impossible to avoid this scenario altogether, but according to a study performed by researchers from the University of Arizona, if governments adhere to the guidelines they set out for themselves in the Paris Climate Agreement (PCA), the number of plant and animal species that go extinct could be cut to "just" 16%. This alarm makes the preservation of the Amazon and all Brazilian forests essential! Brazil's biodiversity is incredibly good not only for the planet, but for the country itself, because, in addition to providing a valuable quality of life for Brazilians, it promotes tourism - which represents an important segment of the Brazilian economy - and other investments attracted by these characteristics, as well as by companies that value the environment. Considering these issues, we ask Federal Government of Brazil to expand investments in affordable housing, basic sanitation, health and education - also implementing a universal basic income for vulnerable people: requiring, however, a vasectomy / endoceptive for those who already have one child (two children per couple) and want to benefit from the income. We also ask a lifetime fine to the middle and upper classes, proportional to income, from the third child onwards - in order to help supply these needs and to protect the gorgeous environment of Brazil. The planet needs to breathe and all humans need quality of life - including Brazilians.

Petition to Malcolm Turnbull
LIFE DEPENDS ON WATER, OUR RIVERS DEPEND ON YOU
We live on the driest inhabited continent on the planet and what has always been clear is water is life and our rivers, including the Murray-Darling system are the lifeblood of this country. For too long we have abused what mother nature has given us and not given our rivers or the ecosystems that are supported by them the respect they deserve. Right now our rivers are stressed along with the country and communities that rely on them. Last year alone, the Darling had no flow for eight months, this is longer than ever before seen in white man’s history despite the fact that last year New South Wales rainfall was 20% above average. The Murray-Darling is an interconnected system, much like a set of lungs. If one is sick and dying the other may survive but for how long? The last few years have seen higher than average rainfall with last year alone being 63% above South Australia’s average rainfall, but eventually there will be another drought and ignoring the management issues of the basin due to a few good years is ludicrous. It’s time the communities along these great rivers stand up and call upon Malcolm Turnbull to finish what he started and get a plan in place that is sustainable and fair. As a young person I’m sick of hearing from older people what our rivers use to be, let’s fight to get them back to what they were.
Petition to WBSD School Board
The Jackson Community depends on our schools!
Please sign to help support the Jackson Community and Jackson Elementary School! Feel free to also comment, as the comments will also be given to the School Board. By signing this you agree to support the Jackson Community and Jackson Elementary School, along with Decorah and Fair Park. Please read below for more information. BACKGROUND The outgoing mayor of West Bend recently set up a private task force of West Bend businessmen to evaluate many of the West Bend School District facilities. The proposal they offered to the School Board was to no longer have a school in the Village of Jackson and to instead build an undersized new school to house nearly 800 elementary-age students in West Bend and to permanently bus all Jackson children to that school. This task force was not requested by the School Board, and conducted this work independently and without being asked. The School Board has not taken a stance on the task force’s conclusions and has stated they are reviewing the task force’s findings. The task force holds no official authority and is merely a group of community members. We thank the School Board for not immediately embracing this task force’s findings and instead taking an appropriately measured approach in its response to the task force’s work. A NEW JACKSON ELEMENTARY IS NEEDED Jackson is the one portion of the School District which is expanding, with nearly 200 new housing developments in the works right now. There is more land primed for development in Jackson than any other area of the School District. Jackson is growing and the District must acknowledge that and plan accordingly. This means building a new school in Jackson. Jackson Elementary is one of the highest performing schools in not only the West Bend School District, but the county. Closing a successful school would take the District backwards and demonstrate to the community that the District does not value success or high-quality academics. It would communicate that the desire to potentially save $20 per year on a tax bill outweighs the District’s obligation to provide the children of our community with the opportunity to grow, excel and eventually realize the American dream. The hard-working parents and citizens of our District deserve a school system that puts children first. A NEW JACKSON ELEMENTARY MAKES FISCAL SENSE The idea of transporting all of the children in Jackson to West Bend daily is not best for young children and does not make fiscal sense. Bus routes are extremely expensive, a fact it appears this task force did not consider. Also, transporting elementary aged students to West Bend every day will require very young children to spend a substantial amount of time on the bus daily. Five year olds should not spend an hour on the bus each morning and then again each afternoon. If Jackson Elementary were closed and students were forced to travel to West Bend, the District would likely see a significant increase in the number of children open enrolling out of the District as parents search for closer options for their young children to attend school. This would drain the District’s coffers and vastly accelerate a declining enrollment trend. Jackson is the one area of the District with the growth to temper the District’s declining enrollment trend. Losing the students of Jackson to another District could accelerate this declining enrollment trend to catastrophic levels. Additionally, the task force did not consider the negative impact of constructing a school for 800 elementary-age students. Few families would view this as the right situation for their young child. Parents want schools that feel like communities, not factories. Parents forced to enroll their child in a school of 800 would likely seek open enrollment opportunities and leave the District, thereby exacerbating the declining enrollment situation in the District. An elementary school for 800 children would be virtually unheard of in the State of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin DPI database lists 877 schools as true elementary schools with students no older than 5th grade attending. The median enrollment for those schools is 334 students. Only 6 of those schools have an enrollment of at least 800. Clearly the parents and communities in our State have acknowledged that oversized elementary schools are not the best way to educate students, nor is it the type of impersonal setting that parents want their children in at that early age. If the village of Jackson were to lose its public school, the effect on Jackson property values and businesses would be disastrous. Residents would flee, driving down property values. Selling a property in Jackson would become extremely difficult. Businesses would struggle to attract top talent to their companies without a neighborhood school to boast about. The success of Jackson Elementary is a rallying point of pride for the community of Jackson. Closing our school and thereby ripping that away from the people of Jackson would be a heartless and devastating act against the residents of Jackson DISTRICT MUST MAKE GOOD ON ITS PROMISE Additionally, the District has been promising a new school for Jackson for nearly a quarter of a century. When referendums to remodel Badger Middle School, Silverbrook Intermediate School and Green Tree Elementary (all schools in the city of West Bend) were brought forward, the citizens of Jackson were encouraged to vote in favor of those developments with the promise that a new Jackson Elementary would be next on the agenda. To now close Jackson would be a horrific bait and switch on the part of the District and would demonstrate that the School Board cannot be trusted with our tax dollars or our vote. Jackson has stood by and watched improvements be made to most other schools in the District over the past couple decades while Jackson residents have waited patiently, trusting the District will eventually invest in the children of its community. The District must keep its promises and not treat the children of Jackson as second-class citizens in the West Bend School District SUMMARY It is possible that the private task force did not take into account the considerations presented in this statement and may wish to review their work and reflect on the concerns brought forth. We encourage the task force to act as a dynamic, collaborative and solution-oriented group, willing to work with the rest of the members of our community. The District will not arrive at a sustainable and optimal solution if the task force simply digs in its heels to defend its original findings regardless of concerns brought by the community. We appreciate that the task force agreed that an appropriately-sized referendum, paired with appropriate maintenance budgeting and well-reasoned adjustments to declining enrollment trends is necessary for the District to succeed. Thanks for your time and support! Traci Wells & Casey Latz

Petition to U.S. immigration judge Helaine Perlman
Grant Kevin Euceda asylum. His life depends on it.
The U.S. government wants to deport a Honduran youth named Kevin Euceda, who has already been in detention for more than two years. U.S. immigration judge Helaine Perlman, the judge who is ruling over Kevin’s request for asylum had made a decision to grant him asylum — but the government (ICE) disagreed and wants her to make a new decision. Deportation means a death sentence. Kevin deserves the opportunity to stay in the USA and rebuild his life. He already has met the qualifications for political asylum. If Kevin Euceda is deported he will be killed by gangs in Honduras. As a youth, he was forced into gang life. He was physically abused, and forced to witness torturing and killing, including dismemberment of body parts. He refused to participate in further activities such as random “blood in” murder and wanted out. This is why he risked his life to enter the United States. “To bolster its policy of stepped up enforcement, the Trump administration is requiring that notes taken during mandatory therapy sessions with immigrant children be passed onto ICE, which can then use those reports against minors in court. Intimate confessions, early traumas, half-remembered nightmares — all have been turned into prosecutorial weapons, often without the consent of the therapists involved, and always without the consent of the minors themselves, in hearings where the stakes can be life and death.” Kevin’s confidential therapy notes were used against him. Once again his trust has been betrayed. His own words interpreted and misinterpreted by several government lawyers and agencies to serve their “spin” of his tragic story to gain reasons for deportation and win in court. His own words used against him. Justice needs to happen in this case. He has again been victimized by our legal system that has mishandled the case. Please sign this petition to have Kevin Euceda be awarded asylum! Save this young man’s life!

IMPLEMENTATION OF CHILD MARRIAGE LAWS IN NIGERIA
In Nigeria (Northern Nigeria) young girls below the age of 18 are being given away to grown men for marriage. According to Wikipedia, many girls are married before the age of 15, some as young as 7. As of 2006, 15–20% of school dropouts in Nigeria were the result of child marriage. In northern states over 50% of the girls marry before the age of 15. Child marriage leads to teenage pregnancy and most importantly violates the rights of children. This petition is to put an end to this by pressuring the legislative and executive bodies of Nigeria to make and enforce the laws that discourage child marriage. I strongly believe we will eventually provide a place that is safer for the young girls and boys f Nigeria. Please sign this petition to show your support to stop the denial of the rights of our children. Every signature counts. Thank you.
