Petition to Tommy Ford, Don Banks, Leslie Rutledge
My daughter was brutally attacked while sleeping in her bed around 4 am Saturday morning by a 26 year old man who had been watching her. He broke in through her living room window and covered her face with his boxers, he threatened to kill her when she woke up, then beat her to a pulp trying to make her pass out so he could rape her. He fractured her face. She just got off the Appalachian trail so she is in great shape and was able to uncover his face at which point he began to cowar down. He knew her name, she did not know his. This took place in Panama City Beach, Florida. The Bay County Sherriffs Department had two men come talk to her, cut her fingernails and look at her body. That was the first mistake. The police report is a joke. The attacker is the son and grandson of law enforcement. They released the attacker in less than 24 hours after the attack but didn't post it until a public outcry on Facebook. He is a very violent man and the local authorities are trying to sweep this under the rug quickly. They have allowed him to leave the state even though more women are coming forward with the same scenario. They are looking the other way! The attacker also has an immediate family member who has worked DOC for 27 years. Thank you for your support! I want to get BCSO to press proper charges against him and get him off the street now.  #Momonamission #justiceforhali   Read more

The president of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has lost legitimacy. Zimbabweans are suffering and the government has launched a crack down on personal liberties. The economy is collapsing. Health delivery has collapsed, yet he continues travelling around the world in posh private jet. On 14th January 2019, protesters have been brutalised by Zimbabwean security forces. Live ammunition has been used againt civilians. Emmerson Mnangagwa must be stopped from traveling to Davos from 22-25 January 2019. The international community must stop propping up a dictator. Read more

Petition to NJ Governor Phillip J Murphy, Sheila Oliver, Al Sharpton, Supreme Court State of NJ
State v. Kevin Lloyd Ind. Nos.: 09-10-2752  Kevin Lloyd is a man that was convicted of Attempted Murder without the victim attending or testifying at his trial. After conviction Mr. Lloyd requested that his attorney send out an investigator to find the victim. Three months later the victim was found and gave a statement that exonerated him. During the evidentiary hearing, after the new trial petition, the victim testified that Mr. Lloyd did not shoot him and named the shooter. The victim’s testimony was corroborated by the Newark Crime Scene Units reports. The judge denied his petition for a new trial stating he did not believe anything the victim testified too. There is no physical evidence in this case tied to the defendant with the exception of a shirt that had his DNA on the collar. If the defendant was running and took off his shirt and threw it, how could his DNA only be found on the collar? There are a lot of questionable events that took place in this indictment like why did the victim not testify? Was it because he was stating the defendant did not do it? Why was it not in the records that the victim signed himself out the hospital without medical treatment? Mr. Lloyd was sentenced to a Life sentence for a charge that should carry at most 20 years maximum according to the NJ statutes. After a remand from the Appellate court, Mr. Lloyd was resentenced to an illegal sentence of 30 years. Mr. Lloyd is currently waiting for a decision from the NJ Appellate Court and the NJ Supreme Court. Due to the current pandemic the whole process, that has already been dragging on for years, has been put on hold. Mr. Lloyd is a fifty year old African-American male who suffers from diabetes, a chronic illness, which leaves him vulnerable to contracting the deadly corona virus. This virus has been the direct result of the deaths of many officers, civilian staff and inmates at Northern State Prison where he is being held. I am requesting that someone immediately look into the judicial procedures that have taken place in this indictment in hopes he can finally receive his due process and that his 9 year wait for relief will not result in a death sentence.• Mr. Lloyd is convicted. Sentenced to Life in Prison for attempted murder 2011• Mr. Lloyd's attorney visits him and gives him a document admitting he was ineffective 2011• Victim makes a statement that Mr. Lloyd did not shoot him 2012• Appellate Court remands the sentence by the local courts 2016• Judge denies Mr. Lloyd the right to a jury of his peers 2016• Post Conviction Relief (PCR) filed by Mr. Lloyd 2016• Mr. Lloyd re-sentenced by judge to 30 years and told that he could appeal it 2018• PCR briefs filed by Plaintiff Counsel, Defense Counsel and Pro Se by Mr. Lloyd 2018• Evidentiary Hearing 2018• Expert testimony confirmed Mr. Lloyd's document from his trial attorney as authentic. (Document stating he was ineffective) 2018• Trial Attorney's wife volunteers to testify in favor of Mr. Lloyd’s innocence 2018• PCR denied by Judge Cifelli 2018 •  Appellate Court Remanded Sentence 2018   Appellate Court upheld the Judges determination regardless of the evidence 2020    Mr Lloyd has been waiting since 2018 for a date to be resentenced Read more

Petition to United States Supreme Court, President of the United States, Federal Bureau of Investigation
Just recently, a group called Heart Progess has risen and they are trying to legalize pedophilia, or pedosexuality as they like to call it, which is a crime against humanity. They say that pedophiles should have the same rights as the LGBT communities in which they don't, for taking away a child's innocence is wrong. A child should NEVER have go through something like that. People, our children and grandchildren are in danger. Please, whether you have children or not, sign this petition, share this with your friends, family, anyone you know that cares about the children's safety and get them to sign this. Fight back the monsters with everything you got and do not stop until Heart Progess is shut down by the government and all the pedophiles are arrested and locked away. Fight for the children! Read more

Petition to Government of Brazil, Amazon.com, The world’s richest people, Jeff Bezos, World Wildlife Fund
The Amazon rainforest is known as “The World’s Lungs” producing at least 20% of the world’s oxygen. The rainforest filled with known and unknown flora and fauna has been burning for at least three weeks now due to drought and possibly human activity.  People came together for Notre Dame to rebuild the church, let’s stop the fire and rebuild this important forest. I am contacting Jeff Bezos, “The World’s Richest People” (Wikipedia) with the signatures along with the Brazilian government and other conservation groups in hopes that they can work together to put out the fire. Considering Jeff Bezos is THE RICHEST MAN in the modern history and has profited off the name: “Amazon”, it is in his best interest to save the forest he is named after.  The burning of the Amazon rainforest is an allegory for his business model of profiting off the depletion of the earth’s natural resources which continues to promote unhealthy consumption. Let’s change this metaphor and save the planet! If there are any suggestions that may make this argument stronger, or other people you think I should add to the list, write them below. �  Some things you can do now: 1: use Ecosia as a search engine as opposed to Google. Make it your default homepage! From the add revenue, they plant trees and even have financial reports readily available for everyone. They have promised to plant 1,000,000 trees to undo deforestation. (Ecosia.org) 2. If you have not gone meatless yet, start with one meal a day that is meat free. From January to March of 2018, Brazil exported almost 500,000 tones of beef worldwide (http://www.brazilianbeef.org.br/ExportsByYear.aspx 3. Deforestation is a major cause of the fires. You can reduce your consumption of soya beans and beef in particular, but also corn, rice and sugar. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/02/120228123849.htmRead more

Petition to Pontefract council, Wakefield council
The bill we are campaigning against is the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill which essentially outlines that police will be given more power over shutting down peaceful protests due to noise and the alleged disruption it causes. By this bill being passed, it will lead to many protesters being silenced which restricts our basic human right of freedom of speech and our right to protest which goes against the universal declaration of human rights. By this bill being stopped, it will allow more changes to be made which will lead to the development. By being able to protest freely, it has aided in the battle for equal human rights e.g. Women's Rights and Black Civil Rights.Read more
