Arrest Pollachi gang Rapists and bring them to justice swiftly with special court
On February 12, a 19-year-old college girl from Pollachi, was raped by her friend N Sabarirajan, Thirunavukkarasu, T Vasanthakumar and N Sathish in a car.They took her to a farm house and raped her and video tapped it. She isn’t the first victim or the last victim. When the perpetrators phone was checked there were 100’s of videos of women being raped by this group of people.They have videotaped it for their future use.100’s and 100’s of woman are tortured, rapped by this people but it’s still on regional news and police going with soft hands. We need special court and Special investigation Team to speed up the process and bring all of the members of this gang and set an example for rapists who are taking rape as their profession of pleasure. These people and whoever involved in this should never see the light of the day which will bring fear in minds of people who think of rape.
Petition to Superintendent & School Committee of Canton
Canton, MA Parents Call For Action To Move Swiftly Towards Increased In-School Learning
Join us in urging Canton Public Schools to investigate, prepare, and authorize a detailed and thoughtful plan for a phased return to full-time in-person learning in Canton, Massachusetts for those families who choose it. The signatories of this letter call on our Superintendent, along with Members of the School Committee, to take swift action towards developing a plan to get our children back in the classroom for more in-person learning, with full-time in-person learning as the ultimate goal. There is no dispute that our children are suffering, that remote learning is not an adequate substitute for in-person learning, and that we must have a plan for ultimately returning to full-time in-person learning. We also know that, thanks to the efforts of our District, Canton Public Schools have seen ZERO in-school transmission of the Covid-19 virus. National and state data confirms that schools are not super spreaders. People are shopping, going out to eat, getting their hair done, going to the gym, and generally going about business as usual, with masks and social distancing efforts in place. Extra-curricular activities, though different, have thankfully been able to carry on, providing our children with much-needed exercise, socialization, and distraction from what has been a truly unprecedented year. Yet, when it comes to the most essential part of our children’s lives - their education - Canton’s students continue to be committed to their homes and screens 3 out of 5 days a week. They are staring at a screen hours upon end, taking endless breaks, and learning far, far less than they should be. Our youngest learners stand to suffer significant delay in their progress, while our oldest learners are missing out on critical educational milestones with their futures on the doorstep. And all of them have now suffered through nearly a year without critical social and emotional learning experiences. This petition is a call for action. We know there are many factors, many challenges, and that there is no easy fix. But we will never reach the goal of full-time in-person learning without a plan. Parents and students were told that the hybrid model was part of a continuum - a continuum towards full in-person learning. Where is the timeline and plan for reaching that goal? Towns throughout Massachusetts, including public schools, have been able to accomplish 4 or 5 day in-person learning all year, while others are diligently phasing towards that now. That is happening around the corner. At a minimum, it seems that many other towns have plans in the works. They face similar struggles, similar spacing restrictions, similar staffing concerns. Yet, they have come up with a plan. What is Canton’s plan? We ask the Superintendent and School Committee to prioritize the development of a plan and timeline for the re-opening of Canton Public Schools for full-time in-person learning. Complacence with the status quo is not acceptable when our children are at stake.

Petition to Mamata Banerjee
Act swiftly and facilitate the release of Shri. Tapan Ghosh arrested on 3 Nov 2014
Shri. Tapan Ghosh has been doing in West Bengal for Hindu human rights like helping Hindus rehabilitate in riots hit area, saving kidnapped Hindu girls from Islamic radicals and donating grocery and items of basic necessity to displaced Hindus across West Bengal Hindu Samhati's efforts have been lauded by renowned human rights activists like Dr. Richard Benkin (USA), Dr. Gautam Sen (London), Swami Sanghatmananda (Bharat Sevashram Sangh), Swami Tejasananda (Bardhaman) at a massive rally organized in Kolkata on 14th Feb 2013 to protest against continuous violation of cease fire from Pakistan and beheading of Indian Army soldiers. In USA, Europe, Australia and many other countries around the world people gather in thousands to hear him and his struggle to support-sustain and defend Hindu human rights worldwide. In 2012 at Hindu Memorial Day held at Houston, Texas , Shri Tapan Ghosh spoke about continuous human rights violations West Bengal Hindus are facing. His articles and blogs are given high accord at various national and international fora. His knowledge , wisdom and leadership qualities to serve Hindu human rights have been applauded by numerous international institutions. By arresting such a patriotic son of the soil, the administration has jeopardized the confidence of social service activist and has fanned human rights violations against Hindus in West Bengal by Islamic radicals. Hindu Samhati President Sri Tapan Ghosh along with two key HS leaders Sri Asitava Bhowmik and Sri Sujit Maity have been illegally arrested by police at Chanchal, Malda district (West Bengal). They were on a tour of North Bengal region. It was the second day of their “All Bengal membership drive”. Now, the police claim that these 3 Hindu Samhati leaders have been arrested for not obtaining permission for holding a rally. Though the fact of the matter is, they were holding interactive sessions (private meetings) with Hindu Samhati activists inside a private property and that too without using any loudspeaker. The spineless WB state administration are desperate not allow Hindus to live with dignity and convert this state into another East Pakistan. The officer who is the In-Charge (IC) of Chanchol police station, Tulsidas Bhattacharya is misbehaving with them without any provocation. They are now detained at Chanchal (pronounced Chanchol) Police Station and are expected to be put before the vacation bench tomorrow, though no formal charges have yet been framed against them. It is suspected to be a preventive detention, in view Muharram tomorrow though the police is yet to specify the nature of detention. Located right on the India-Bangladesh border, Malda is a sensitive frontier district with a Muslim population suspected to have crossed 50 percent of the total population, as per Census 2011 figures (yet undisclosed for religious demography). We request to please call any of the following officials and demand an explanation for this illegal act and urge them to release our leaders . Their contact details are as follow - Mobile phone numbers: Superintendent of Police (SP), Malda district, Sri Prasun Banerjee: +91-9775-80-2302 Additional SP (Malda district), Sri Abhishekh Modi: +91-8697-7315-67 IC of Chanchal Police Station, Tulsidas Bhattacharya: +91-9734-35-5393 Landline numbers: SP Malda 03512-252520, 03512-252018.

Petition to Governor General
Swiftly embezzling Senate Voting. Stand up for our rights!
Your Excellency Honourable Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove, We implore you to stand up for the Australian Constitutional Rights. The Government along with the Nationals and the Greens, are aiming at getting rid of the minor Parties through Senate voting reforms. They are swindlers trying to steal the voting rights of Australian people to elect representatives from minor parties. Minor parties have become the last remnants of the minorities representation's in parliament. This happens in a system where bi-partisanship has been taken over by the Liberals and Labor, over at least the last fifty years. The two majors would be happy to compromise with the Greens and the Nationals as it would probably be easier for them to control than having to deal with other minors standing for the people who would otherwise have no representation. As we believe it the Senate Voting reforms represent the biggest threat to the Values of Australian Democracy, we implore you to join us by signing this petition. I attach the letter I addressed to His Excellency, The Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove.
Petition to Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kılıç
Sign: Justice for Dog with Ears Cut Off for Selfies
In a now-viral image circulating throughout Turkish social media, two young men pose proudly next to a cowering dog with bloody stumps for ears, each man holding what appears to be a dog ear in his hand. According to Turkish news, the pair are suspected to be involved in dogfighting, and were reportedly punishing one of their losing dogs. The Turkish justice system has now let the men off with a fine of just over what is equivalent to $1,000 U.S. dollars. And no jail time. This lax punishment is not acceptable for inflicting such reprehensible harm on an animal. These men's shockingly light sentence is not even close to proportional to the pain and suffering they senselessly inflicted on an innocent animal — let alone the multiple dogs presumably forced to tear each other to shreds in fights staged for human entertainment. Animals are not toys. They are not property. They have thoughts and feelings, as backed up by research demonstrating that dogs are just as sentient as a human child. What’s more, cruelty to animals is irrefutably linked to cruelty to human beings. This incident of grossly inhumane treatment highlights the urgent need for the Turkish government to revisit their animal cruelty laws. Please sign this petition now to call on Turkey's Ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kılıç, to advocate for stronger punishment for animal abuse. Dogs like this deserve justice, and animal torture must be treated like the serious crime that it truly is.
Petition to Michelle Obama
From the grassroots women leaders of Congo to the women leaders of the White House
“We have had enough. We call upon our global sisterhood to take action. We will not be quiet until REAL Peace is upon us.” On November 20, 2012, M23 rebels seized Goma, a major city in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, reigniting a war that has ravaged the region for 16 years. Neema Namadamu and a group of grassroots women leaders who call themselves the Maman Shujaa ('Hero Women' in Swahili) are calling on you and US woman leaders Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, and Michelle Obama to take immediate action in solidarity with the women of the Congo. I was born in a very remote village in South Kivu Province, eastern Congo. I belong to a marginalized tribe and I am crippled from Polio. But none of those things characterize me. I have a vision for my country—a new and peaceful Congo—that compels me, and its destiny is driving me. War has ravaged my homeland for 16 years. Today, eastern Congo is labeled the worst place on earth to be a woman. We have been brutalized by our brothers who perpetrate violence on the bodies of their sisters, daughters, and mothers in the worst imaginable ways. A woman is 134 times more likely to be raped in my region than a woman in the United States. Several months ago, soldiers indiscriminately beat my own daughter. Congo is home to the second largest rain forest in the world, behind Brazil, and 60% of all Africa’s forests. It has enough hydropower potential to power all of Africa. It has an estimated 24 trillion dollars of mineral wealth, far greater un-monetized wealth than any other nation in the world. But the mothers of its children live in poverty, in fear of being raped, daily losing their sons and husbands to endless wars. We are brutalized in unconscionable ways by monsters wearing military uniforms. We are tired of this. We have had enough. We know that we can create peaceful, sustainable communities in Congo through a holistic new model that ends violence, poverty, and the destruction of nature altogether. This July I set up a women’s internet café and media center and gathered grassroots women leaders across my region to discuss the future of our country. Within two months we had nearly 200 women activists reporting about life in war-torn DRC through the action media network World Pulse. We began speaking out—demanding the Congo we hold in our hearts to manifest all around us. As women, our solutions are inclusive, as they are rooted in family and community. But last week rebels took hold of Goma, inflicting more horrors upon its women and children—even pregnant women—and threatened to advance to our area. The region has been destabilized by this deadly power play and 140,000 people have been displaced. We as women must join together now because WE CAN. Even in remote Congo we have become connected to our global sisterhood. We who are One with the 35 million+ women of the DRC, who are One with the 3.5 billion+ women of the world, are standing for an end to all violence and aggression in Eastern DRC. We will not be quiet until real peace is upon us. We, the grassroots women leaders of eastern DRC, call upon our female counterparts in the White House—our sisters Secretary Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Susan Rice, Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and First Lady Michelle Obama—to speak with your President on our behalf and ensure a true peace process begins in our homeland. We ask for the immediate appointment of a special presidential envoy to work with the African Union and United Nations to forge a peace process that addresses both the immediate crisis and the underlying longer-term economic and political interests of the parties involved. Only through a mediation of this level can we hope to establish resolution among the numerous states, rebel armies, and special interests who have long fueled this conflict and humanitarian crisis. And, it is essential that any action ensures Congolese women—who are uniquely positioned to act on behalf of family and community—have a voice in the peace process and a seat at the table. STAND WITH US! Sincerely, Neema Namadamu and the Maman Shujaa (‘Hero Women’) of the Democratic Republic of Congo

Petition to Tyson Foods
Tell Tyson to Stop Ripping Heads Off Live Chickens
Hi, I’m Candice Bergen. If you’re like me, you would never condone animal abuse. But if you eat chicken from Tyson Foods (which supplies McDonald’s, KFC, Chick-fil-A, and more), you may be unknowingly supporting some of the most sickening animal abuse imaginable. How do I know? Multiple undercover investigations by Mercy For Animals have uncovered ongoing and systemic animal abuse at Tyson Foods. Most recently, a brave investigator used a hidden camera to document conditions at a Tyson slaughterhouse in Mississippi. What he witnessed was beyond disgusting. I watched the video in horror as workers who seemed to take pleasure in tormenting the frightened birds punched, beat, and threw the animals before violently slamming them upside down into metal shackles. One worker even used the shackled live birds as punching bags. The birds were then painfully shocked with electricity to immobilize their bodies before having their throats cut open. The investigator documented countless birds who weren’t shackled properly getting their heads ripped off while they were still alive and conscious. The investigator reported these abuses to his supervisor on multiple occasions. He even called the Tyson Foods hotline to report the daily cruelty he had witnessed. But he saw no corrective actions taken. At Tyson Foods, extreme cruelty to animals is just business as usual. But I think we can change that. Because of caring people like you, who sign petitions like this and use their voices to speak up for the voiceless, we’ve already seen some of the biggest food companies make important changes. For example, after hearing from thousands of people through Change.org, Nestlé, Walmart, and Starbucks all made commitments to ending some of the worst forms of factory farm cruelty in their global supply chains. There’s no reason Tyson Foods can’t do the same. Please, take a moment to sign my petition calling on Tyson Foods to implement meaningful animal welfare changes. Thank you.

*EMERGENCY* THE AMAZON IS ON FIRE! TELL THE UNITED NATIONS TO HELP BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
THIS IS A GLOBAL STATE OF EMERGENCY AND IT GREATLY INVOLVES YOU, YOUR LOVED ONES AND ALL OF HUMANITY! The Amazon rainforest is in a critical state of collapse as a record number of fires (over 74,155, an 85% increase since 2018) have been burning for over 3 weeks (as of the writing of this petition) - and the Brazilian government is allowing it to happen! This isn't just an environmental issue, this is a humanitarian issue! The Amazon (known as the lungs of our earth) provides the planet with a lot of its oxygen, and is an essential, irreparable link that holds our global ecosystem within balance. It is now emitting the most carbon dioxide since 2010, and climbing! What's even worse is that these fires are all created by man due to deforestation for agricultural interests, encouraged by Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, and anonymous groups trying to remove indigenous populations from their lands in order to enact oil drilling. Scientists say there is only 5% left, before the amazon will reach the tipping point and its ecosystems begin to irreparably collapse. “The fires have led to a clear spike in carbon monoxide emissions as well as planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions, posing a threat to human health and aggravating global warming” worldwide (The Washington Post). So what can we do? Dramatic and swift action needs to take place, and the ones who have the power to take this action is the United Nations (UN). From their website, the UN states it “can take action on the issues confronting humanity in the 21st century, such as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more. This situation checks almost all boxes. More specifically the UN could: #1. Send in immediate humanitarian support to all the indigenous and local groups who have lost their homes and way of life. #2: Coordinate a large scale effort with Brazil and neighboring countries to fight the fires in the most high risk areas, such as those affecting indigenous, animals and the most fragile ecosystems. #3: Create economic sanctions on Brazil that would illegalize the cutting, selling and buying of timber and meat produced in the country. Jair Bolsonaro is clearly only focused on short term economic gains, therefore #3 could in fact bring the government to the table of diplomatic resolution and help safeguard this vital life force, for us all. If a government does not take measures to protect natural resources that have a direct affect on the livelihood and well being of the entire planet and all its inhabitants, it should lose its privilege (not right) to govern over those resources. We the people, and Earth’s collective ecosystem (plants and animals), have the right to live in balance. That balance should not be determined by the greed of a handful of individuals in power. Please sign this petition and urge the UN to take action on behalf of humanity, it’s inhabitants and this world. Share this petition on your social media platforms, and encourage everyone else to do the same! Our combined influence can create the momentum needed to make a difference. Let’s use the power of influence: for powerful, positive change. Sign now, this one is more than worth it.

Petition to NY Met Mets, Sterling equities, MLB
The New York Mets need to act fast with the help of MLB to oust the Wilpons swiftly!!
As a loyal fan to a team in the largest market in these United States, it’s despicable to see them run into the ground due to Top Level ignorance and ego. An offer was presented to right all of their wrongs, and then some, and yet they still try to ask for more and ruin it all. This is the 2nd time that a sale was ruined by this ownership group. This group has done everything they can to just stay afloat or do things the incorrect way and it’s time to put that to bed. If you want to own a sports franchise in a large market such as NY and expect your fans to pay top dollar, you should have to put your money where your mouth is or move on!! It is time for them to sail into whatever sunset they want and Jeff Wilpon must realize he’s not the leader that takes this team anywhere but down!!! Fans need to make their grievances even further known to hopefully gain the attention of MLB. They have stepped in before and my God this team more than any other seems to desperately need it now!! God Bless and Let’s Go Mets!!
