Petition to Jeff Bezos, Amazon,

Remove NRA TV from Amazon's Streaming Service & Website

My oldest friend (for nearly 20 years) has a son who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas and was there last week, huddling and hiding for his life. For 30 anxious minutes, we knew there was a school shooting but has no word on his safety. We learned he was okay fairly quickly, but too many others weren't so lucky. After seeing 17 young people lose their lives, I was angered to see the defensive reaction from the National Rifle Association - and upset when I saw that Amazon hosts NRAtv, a channel with the slogan “America’s Most Patriotic Team on a Mission to Take Back The Truth." It’s a 24-hour streaming service with 22 original series that promote the NRA's propaganda, and there’s even an entire segment devoted to how it should be easier to purchase an AR15. Amazon needs to remove from their services, sites and offerings immediately. The NRA has long ignored its role in promoting gun violence and betrayed the names of good and responsible gun owners. It’s time to hold it, and its partners, accountable. The NRA represents millions of gun owners BUT nowhere near all or a majority of U.S. gun owners. In fact, less than 10 percent of gun owners belong to the NRA. We need to include gun owners in this fight - responsible people who don't feel that the NRA speaks for them - so let's keep this fight focused. The NRA is a group that's rotten to the core and a company like Amazon should not be spreading its message. Not anymore. We must remember to respect the First Amendment above all else. If NRA members want to watch NRA TV, they can find it without Amazon's promotion. There is no place in your home for brands that earn money through the NRA. Sign this petition, then flood Amazon's Legal Department with calls at 206-266-4064. We already shook up their PR Department and got their long-running media hotline to temporarily shut down (206-266-7180), although it’s still worth a try during business hours, since they’ll likely put it back up again at some point.

Petition to SYFY, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu

Renew The Expanse for Season 4+

EDIT: Due to the shows cancelation this petition is being sent to other decision makers in addition to SyFy. Namely Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. Sign any other petitions floating around too! The Expanse is arguably the best science fiction television show to air in recent years. The book series is fantastic and the writers of the show have done one of the best translations of page to screen I've ever seen. Please, allow the show to grow, don't make the same mistake as countless other networks in cancelling it far before its time. History shows that sci-fi TV shows are slow and steady to build in popularity but offer substantially more longevity than other genres.  Cancelling The Expanse would be devastating to an underappreciated genre of TV. If renewed, I guarantee the fan base will only continue to grow, if cancelled there would be ramifications to not only the genre but also your network. Ratings aren't everything, I don't watch SyFy for any other show currently and I would be willing to bet the same can be said for many others. Allow The Expanse to flourish and your viewers will be grateful for years to come. As a species we are on the brink of great changes. For the first time in history we are on the verge of becoming an interplanetary society. Many people are becoming more and more excited about space. This show offers a glimpse to the dreamers of what our future may hold. Now is the time to allow this type of show to take roots. Give dreamers the chance to be inspired to turn science fiction into science fact.
