Let the Greek Language be supported by Amazon (kindle, ebooks)
Greek is surprisingly not amongst the languages supported by Amazon for digital publications. KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) already accepts ebooks written in other languages, such as Corsican or Catalan, or Basque, or Galician or Scottish Gaelic. Yet Greek is NOT supported for ebooks to be available for reading on kindle (devices or app) or compatible eReaders and tablets...! This PETITION aims at encouraging or persuading AMAZON to consider commencing supporting GREEK because: UNICODE character set allows the Correct and Perfect Displaying of Greek text on eReaders, even the accents of “polytonic” ancient Greek text. Greek Language has given birth to endless Terms of Science (in Mathematics, Medicine, Physics etc) through ancient words (or their derivative Roman words); the symbols of those terms do exist in Sciences already, so most people are already familiarized with the pi/π, alpha/α, delta/δ, theta/θ, lambda/λ, mu/μ, omega/Ω(ω), phi/φ etc throughout the civilized world (expected to use digital eReaders in order to read). Similarly, Greek Language as well as Roman commenced the whole literary and philosophical production of the Western World. Historic value of Greek Language, still remaining spoken, alive and developing. Continued lack of support for Greek alone might well be thought as a DISCRIMINATION against Greek Ideals and Spirit, because other languages (spoken by much fewer people) are surprisingly already supported (Corsican etc.). Greek language is actively spoken by more than 12 million people worldwide; it is used as the Official language of two (2) distinct Countries (Greece and Cyprus) and by the numerous Greek Diaspora (throughout the U.S., Australia, Germany, France and elsewhere). Greek language is also needed by scholars in Universities and Colleges for teaching classic Literature (Greek/Roman). There would be an ECOLOGICAL DISASTER of paper/wood trees waste, if paper-books continue to be absolutely necessary for publications of ancient Greek tragedies, poetry, philosophy, dictionaries etc.

Tell Amazon it’s time to adopt “waste-free” packaging
This has probably happened to you: You order a small, non-fragile item from Amazon. The item could easily fit inside a padded envelope. Instead, it arrives in a box that is much larger than needed. This happens practically every time I order something from Amazon. Recently, I decided that enough is enough. There’s no reason for a company of this size to participate in this much waste, day in and day out, all across the globe. Amazon has taken some initial steps to address the problem of packaging waste. Last year, they stopped using wrapping paper for products purchased during the holiday season and started using gift bags instead. The company was a leader in introducing “frustration-free” packaging - using packing materials that could be opened without requiring a box-cutter or other tools. If Amazon addresses its pervasive practice of wasteful packaging we can feel better about shopping there. The company can come to be known for its responsible stewardship of our planet. This change may even be good for Amazon's bottom line. If you’re as concerned as I am by the environmental cost of Amazon's over-sized and wasteful packaging, please take a moment to sign this petition. Let's let Amazon know it’s time to eliminate excessive packaging -- right away and once and for all.

Amazon: Stop Advertising on Breitbart!
Amazon continues to advertise on Breitbart news! Amazon claims they do not, but this is false. Amazon uses "chain advertising" as a cover. In other words, while it may not directly pay to advertise on Breitbart, it pays 3rd party brokers to place ads for them and then uses that excuse/cover to make the claim that they do not. Amazon is able to choose where their advertising appears but has chosen NOT to stop their brand from showing up on Breitbart. According to thenextweb.com, over 2575 other companies have chosen not to support this hate-mongering website and opted out through a "blacklist", ensuring their ads will not appear. Amazon continues to financially support Breitbart a site that deals in lies. misogyny, racism, xenophobia, Islamaphobia, anti-semitism, and more. It needs to stop. Sign this petition to let Amazon know you do not approve. Kathy

To Jeff Bezos: Spend to improve Amazon employees' working conditions before rockets.
We love Amazon. It's so practical. On the other hand, its employment practices are draconian. Employees are forced to work to exhaustion to meet increasingly high speed targets. Wages are not always paid properly for work done. Jeff Bezos, CEO at Amazon, is the richest man on Earth. He uses his wealth from Amazon to fund his space program. He is known for funding liberal politics. Space is cool, but Amazon employees should be treated better before launching another rocket. It's not enough to fund social justice enterprises if the workers making that wealth possible are not treated fairly. Amazon needs to pay a living wage, schedule reasonable shifts, and otherwise take the health and well-being of all Amazon employees into account!

It comes with replaceable penises so that you can get better at cutting baby penises.Here is the circumcision training kit sold on Amazon.com:http://amzn.to/2zaafaKIt is wrong to promote the practice of circumcision in Amazon.com. It is not OK that Amazon.com provides to the public the tools and training devices to cut off the tip of a little baby boy's penis. There is no reason for the average customer to practice this at home other than a sick and twisted desire to cut baby penises.We demand that Amazon.com removes this product and any other product that promotes the unnecessary circumcision of babies.Email Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos: email@example.com
