Petition to central board of education, Education Minister, Delhi Government, Priyanka Chaturvedi, Manish Tewari
At the time of worst situation of covid-19 , government and all schools started online classes but they don't thought about the students who are lack of these  technologies even those students who have these technology feasibilities also faced network issue many times. Because of many reasons like these online classes are not so interactive and enough to prepare for board exams.   The situation in India is getting worse day by day!! When there were only a few cases in the country they cancelled the remaining board exams And now when the cases are at a peak they’re planning to open schools!! Some Great planning our government is doing for the future of the country.... Some schools are already calling and others are planning to call their students for preparation of practical exams. Even some school are conducting pre-boards.   I urge the education minister to look into this matter and cancel all examinations to be held this year as students are already under a lot of stress and pressure due to these unfortunate times and above that they’ll have to take the pressure of examinations which could lead them into taking bad decisions if they don’t perform well��some serious action needs to be taken on this i urge you all to support me !Read more

Petition to UK Parliament
An extension should be requested in order to hold a referendum for the public to decide whether or not to accept any deal Johnson agrees with the EU. Action should be taken on a majority view of 60% or more. One option should be to remain in the Single Market, if the Deal Johnson returns with is rejected. This is the only democratic way forward. The government has no right, and absolutely no mandate, to impose this last minute deal/no deal on 65 million people without their agreement, or indeed their knowledge of what it actually incurs, which will be radically different from what was promised in the 2016 referendum. 'Will of the people' and all that.Read more

Petition to Donald J. Trump, Netflix
This movie title 'Cuties' is about 11 year old girls twerking, running away, showing adult things children shouldnt be doing or watching. Netflix needs to take this down. Its being released on September 9th!  This is and has been an issue for so long. Right now in 2020 we are fighting and exposing very dangerous sexual predators, famous and local, and now this too top it off? Why is our children being exposed to this stuff? This will only open eyes for the younger generation and brain wash them. Any parent or guardian should be aware of this movie coming out. We all need to get this off the internet along with many other things! Not only does this movie send horrible messages to children and teenagers, it also shows them its okay to do this cause "theyre all doing and acting that way". What happened to keeping children safe? Why is a national platform like Netflix allowing this to be able to even watch? Its repulsive. No eleven year old needs to know what twerking is. No minor should be able to scroll through Netflix and think its a movie about dancing when its worse! Running away, children acting like GROWN adults. This is a movie about ELEVEN YEAR OLDS!�We need to make America and the World good again and take this off NOW!Read more

As we know Netflix has cancelled some really good shows. such as:  "Sense8" canceled after 2 seasons."The Society" canceled after 1 season. ..."Trinkets” cancelled after two seasons"The OA" canceled after 2 seasons. ..."Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" canceled after 4 seasons. “Anne with an E” cancelled after season 3  *and so on* these were just a few examples on some really good Netflix shows that were cancelled. Netflix then decides to make a “reality show” for “the hype house” like we asked for this... Why are you giving these talentless, boring, unoriginal, privileged people a show? NO ONE WANTS THIS!!!! #CANCELTHEHYPEHOUSESHOW              Read more

Petition to J​.​B. Pritzker
Hello Friends, I need your help. I am asking you to take a moment to show your support for my brother, Derron Johnson, who is the victim of racial prejudice within the criminal system and is currently incarcerated in Dixon Correctional Center.  In 2002, Derron (a black, 16-year-old teen), witnessed his best friend (a white teen) brutally murder another person. Derron had no hand in the murder. It was the definition of “wrong place, wrong time”. He was terrified. He sat outside in shock as his friend perpetrated an awful crime. As a result of his presence in the home, Derron was sentenced to 27 years for the crime. His white co-defendant, who brutally murdered another human being, only received 20 years.  During the investigation, the Aurora Police Department tried to frame Derron for the crime, likely due to his race. The police couldn’t find his fingerprints anywhere to corroborate this assertion, because he simply had nothing to do with it. The police only relented when his friend confessed to the crime.  At trial, the deck was stacked against Derron. He was assigned an attorney who was simultaneously running for Kane County State’s Attorney and was likely not acting in his best interest. The police interviewed him without recording the interview or obtaining his signature on an alleged confession (this is now the law). They later fabricated the interview in court. Because there was no signed confession or recorded interview, it became a matter of “he said, he said”. The police also offered a deal to someone in exchange for their testimony that Derron had a hand in the crime. It was later proven that the witness lied on the stand. Unfortunately, this did not lead to a successful appeal.  My brother has now served 17 of his 27-year sentence. During that time he has focused on his future and has remained non-violent, regardless of being labeled a “murderer” by Kane County. While he has experienced prejudice, he doesn’t spend his time focusing on the past. He acknowledges his role. He wishes he called for help, knowing that a man may still be alive if he had.  Derron channels these regrets into the prospect of a successful future. He earned his GED, he completed some college courses, he participated in self-help groups of several kinds, he is learning Spanish, he is working as a cleaner within the prison. He is invested in his return to the community and has no history of violence whatsoever. Ultimately, he is seeking a second chance. He wants to provide for his wife and for her two children, not sit in a cell as a financial burden to the state.  Please sign this petition to support his request for clemency. Support his chance at life and at freedom.  In solidarityRead more

Petition to President Obama
My name is Aisha, when I was 1 year old, my parents fled our homeland in Burma to seek safety, first in Malaysia and now in the United States. I am from the ethnic and religious minority, the Rohingya. The systemic persecution of my people that caused my parents to flee with me when I was a baby has escalated to brutal levels over the past few months. I fear the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya that remain in Burma, including members of my own family. I am starting this campaign because my fellow Rohingya brothers and sisters in Burma will continue to be brutally persecuted without the help of President Obama and the American people. No human being deserves to beaten, killed or starved to death because of their ethnic and religious identity -- please stand up for the dignity and humanity of the Rohingya people. That is why I am calling on President Obama to speak out against ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya Muslim minority in western Burma during his historic trip to Burma  and demand an action plan from the Burmese government to stop the violence. Over the past several months, what was originally described as inter-communal violence between the Rakhine Buddhists and Rohingya Muslim communities, has turned into the systematic targeting of Rohingya communities, killing hundreds of Rohingya, displacing more than 100,000 ethnic Rohingya people in Arakan/Rakhine state in Western Burma. Targeted violence against the Rohingya is expected to continue as both state authorities and local ethnic Rakhine have forcibly prevented humanitarian aid workers and assistance from reaching displaced communities. The Rohingya minority population in Arakan/Rakhine state in Western Burma have long been considered by the United Nations to be one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Government and societal racism against the ethnic minority Rohingya is at an all time high. Burma’s President Thein Sein said the only solution is for the Rohingya to be rounded up into camps and expelled from Burma. Given the alarming remarks by the President of Burma, the systematic violence carried out by state authorities and local Rakhine communities, it is imperative President Obama leads the effort to prioritize an end to the ethnic cleansing of the ethnic Rohingya minority during his trip.

Petition to IIFA , Andre Timmins, Sabbas Joseph, R. Balki
Afghan Jalebi. Bomb. Bandook. Zandu balm. Bottal. Kaddu. Halwa.  These are the words that none of us use to refer to our women friends, co-workers, bosses, doctors, pilots, chartered accountants, mothers and sisters in our daily lives. Then why are we sitting silently and tolerating Bollywood's continued objectification of women? Objectification means treating a person like a thing, without regard to their dignity. Bollywood needs a reminder that we are #WomenNotObjects. That's why I have started this campaign. I'm asking IIFA (The International Indian Film Academy awards) to make a statement against the objectification of women at its 2019 award show. Sign my petition. I knew I had to do something when my 7-year old cousin belted out the song. "Hai tujh pe right mera, tu hai delight mera, tera rasta joh roku tokne ka nahi" (Which loosely translates as "I have every right on you. If I block your path, don't protest"). These lyrics go against the very idea of consent! The result is that men and boys are going around believing that it is fun and acceptable to stalk a woman and harass her, especially after she says no!  And its not just the boys! These lyrics affect women and girls too. They teach them to be submissive and accept lewd comments, stalking and abuse as normal. I refuse to submit! As a woman living in the 21st century India, I am angry and fed up of entertainment being used as an excuse. In fact, Prasoon Joshi, the renowned lyricist who now heads the Central Board of Film Certification recently admitted "We have portrayed women as sex objects in movies, taking things so lightly. We have failed women as an industry" Its high time the film industry begins to fix the damage done.  Sign my petition asking IIFA to make a statement against objectification of women at its 2019 award show.  I've chosen to address my campaign to IIFA because of their impressive track record of honoring women centric movies. They also aimed to restore gender parity by naming the Best Actress Award as the finale act. This move by them will send a strong message out to the film industry and the millions watching.  Respecting women can no longer be restricted to political slogans and bumper stickers on auto-rickshaws. Sign my petition! #WomenNotObjects #NoMoreGandiBaat Interesting articles: https://www.buzzfeed.com/sahilrizwan/trope-tripe?utm_term=.lnrYe6ZKJ4#.un5EvLl8KOhttps://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/bollywood-woman-problem-180325060304877.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/09/11/a-woman-interviewed-100-convicted-rapists-in-india-this-is-what-she-learned/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.1ba41edfca44  Read more
