Petition to Government of India, People of India
For the past few months, I have been disturbed by this serious issue of increasing crime rate in India. And today, when I saw this video "I've Spent My Life At Police Stations..." - Mariyam Saigal | Spoken Fest 2019) by my fellow Indian sister Miss Mariyam Saigal, in which she strongly and boldly expressed her ugly experiences of her early childhood life. I was already recovering from a certain event of my life, today she made me cry and made me so angry that now I can't stop myself from doing something about this issue. My first step is to ask for your help, and I hope that you will take adequate steps. My next step will be, even I don't know !! But I will not sit ideal. My heart bleeds like every other Indian and every human being when I read a newspaper and watch a news channel filled with evil, inhuman and heinous criminal activities like murder, rape, violence, theft, corruption and other offenses.  In news, with each passing day, both the quantity and intensity of criminal activities seem to increase with time. Crimes not only affect the victim but it also affects everyone, emotionally and socially.  A piece of criminal news induces anger, fear, and sadness in us, emotionally. And it gives rise to a sense of mistrust among the people in society. For example, a few months back, I read a piece of news where a neighbor used to molest an innocent little girl. After reading the news, I felt sad and angry and insecure and concerned.  A few days later I observed a change in my behavior towards the kids in my neighborhood. For many days, I intentionally tried to ignore the kids, who were the same kids I used to play and have fun with. I don't know, psychologically, the reason why I behaved that way but, I am sure that it was the result of that criminal news. Whenever I used to see those kids eventually, the face of that girl smeared in blood and that heinous act of crime used to come to my mind. And I automatically used to become sad and insecure and try to ignore my little friends. And I couldn't even tell them why I was behaving that way. It took me a few months to get back to somewhat normal. But today miss Mariyam again made me sad, insecure and angry. So, I have some suggestions for amendments in Indian Law, mainly in I.P.C. To do that I have written this LETTER to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. If you too are a victim or if you too feel the way I feel about this ugly facet of Indian Society. And If you too have a woman in your life that is precious to you and you can put your life on the line to protect her. Then please do read this Letter and if agree then support my campaign against crime. This is the Google Doc Link for the letter to Prime Minister Narendra ModiJai Hind!Read more

Petition to hormel , PURDUE, Smithfield Clemis Seaboard and Triumph Foods, The above names companies that process hogs., The above named companies that slaughter pigs., http://www.clemensfoodgroup.com/about-u...
Dear Clemens Food Group , Sea Board and Triumph Foods, We the undersigned understand you have just opened up a new hog processing plant using C02. There is a better more humane gas you could be using which would revolutionize that way hog processors stun pigs.The use of inert gases, preferably nitrogen gas. C02 is the gas that builds up in all  mammals, including ourselves , that triggers the brain into a breathing response. That is why we have to breath. And that is why it is such a horrible suffocating feeling if we don't. Nature made this gas build up  so we would breath and any animal that is bred to withstand this gas wouldn't breath properly and how cruel is that? It's taken millions of years of evolution to evolve this breathing process.  Hog processors are saying that a special breed of pig can withstand the C02 gas and therefore it is  humane. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Hold your breath till you can't anymore and that is what these poor animals are experiencing.. The big pork processors are using C02 gas because it's cheaper to use that inert gases.  I understand your hog processing plants plan to open this year using C02 as well but you could change over to inert gases and be the leader in a really humane way pigs are processed. YouTube video links below prove to you the difference between using C02 versus inert gases , in which  Helium was the choice of euthanasia for the selected pig.. Helium is an inert gas but the nitrogen gas option is also inert, less expensive, non toxic and compromises 78% of our atmosphere. In the BBC documentary 'How to kill a human being' , ( about 37 minutes into the film ) a pig preference test  preformed by Dr. Mohan Raj from University of Bristol  England  demonstrates the humane aspects of using nitrogen gas. He gave pigs a choice of what chambers of gas they wanted to enter into for food and the choice was nitrogen.Pigs refused to enter the chamber filled with C02 even though they had been deprived of food before the test.  https://vimeo.com/83750163How to kill a human being (BBC) [COMPLETE IN A SINGLE FILE] - YouTubefrom Northfield Academy 6:37   6:37 Pig Carbon Dioxide Gas Stunning (France, 2015)AnimalIndustry4 months ago18,089 viewshttps://www.reddit.com/r/ AnimalIndustry/ 'From their first lungful of gas, these pigs  If these links don't work, go to YouTube and search in the search bar for Pigs killed with C02 and Pigs killed with Helium. See for yourself the difference.  Below is an article explaining the more humane aspects of inert gases.  https://www.theatlantic.com/  politics/archive/2015/03/can- executions-be-more-humane/ 388249/  As a consummer of pork products I ask you to please commit to using inert gases so I can buy a pork product knowing it didn't have to suffer during it's slaughter. This means so much to me!. In the meantime I'll be reducing all pork intake and buying meatless sausages  and other pork substitutes, which are just as delicious, until I can find a humane pig processor company. I am willing to pay more for a product that protects animals welfare. Sincerely,Read more

Petition to Sindh Forest Department
Mangrove density is on the verge of becoming non-existant, efforts by the Sindh Forest Department in the rehabilitation of mangroves have been successful in the past few years as an alternative method of fuel (Natural Gas) was provided to local villagers to use. Lately, the supply has been cut off, thus, the villagers are using mangrove timber as fuel wood, if this practice continues, mangrove density will start to reduce once more. Help make a change by bringing this issue into light. Read more
