Petition to Mr Roger Whiteside CEO Greggs Bakery
We demand that Greggs stops using 'halal certified' meat in its chicken and turkey products
Greggs the 'British' Bakers is using 'halal certified' meat in its chicken and turkey based products unbeknown to its customers at the point of sale. The halal methods of slaughter, LOW VOLTAGE 'stunning' (an exemption has been given to islamic slaughter houses) or non-stun, are EXTREMELY CRUEL. https://www.ciwf.org.uk/contact-us/faqs-halal-chicken-slaughter/. This meat is unacceptable for Christians to eat: 'You shall not eat meat sacrificed to idols' Acts 15:20 & 29. 'Halal certification' is provided only by Islamic organizations and it would not qualify as 'halal' without the zakat tax which is paid on the fees. This tax funds terrorism: http://www.boycotthalal.com/halal-funds-terrorists-zakat/ It is also a money-making scam estimated to be worth US$2.3 trillion a year. https://www.facebook.com/844952922291468/photos/a.845224135597680.1073741829.844952922291468/863770363743057/?type=3&theater Chickens slaughtered for halal meat in England and Scotland are not being stunned effectively. Instead of being rendered instantly unconscious when immersed in a water bath, they receive a painful electric shock (approximately one quarter of the voltage required by law) similar to being hit by a taser stun gun. This shock immobilizes them but leaves them fully conscious and able to feel pain. Many indigenous English/British people find eating halal slaughtered meat offensive and unacceptable. This is because ritual slaughter runs counter to our cultural norms, our animal welfare laws, our love and respect for animals and to many of us, our Christian Faith. The petitioners hereby declare that they will BOYCOTT GREGGS STORES and the FROZEN GREGGS PRODUCTS offered for sale in ICELAND STORES until such time as Greggs stops selling 'halal certified' chicken and turkey in its products. We believe (and we are unequivocal on this point) that Greggs has no right to sell 'halal certified' meat in its products without the prior knowledge of its customers.
Petition to Theresa May MP - Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party
Is the time long enough before putting an unclaimed dog to sleep? 7 days is no time at all
It can take just 7 days for a healthy unclaimed dog to be put to sleep. Approximately seven thousand dogs are put to sleep because of this reason in the UK every year. If we are really a nation of animal lovers and loving dogs in particular, then it is time for change. Please sign this petition and lets get noticed. Lets make it law that local authorities must hold onto dogs for longer than 7 days before rehoming them or putting them to sleep. 21 days should be the minimum. I would like to make this timescale longer but I want to aim for something achievable. Lets give the owners more time to find their dogs. If the dogs are unwanted lets give the dogs more time to get a place in a rescue centre. I appreciate extra funding will be needed but these dogs die alone and afraid. They cannot stand up for themselves. We have to do it for them. Please sign and prove we are a nation to be proud of.

Tougher Sentences For
People Found Guilty Of Dog Fighting!
Dog fighters train puppies from a very young age, until they’re big enough to fight in this vicious sport. The RSPCA works to expose dog fighting rings and rescue these animals from bloodshed and suffering. Will you join us today to help bring dog fighters to justice and inflict tougher sentences. The current sentence for somebody convicted of dog fighting is 6 months (halved, 3 months for good behaviour) What's this in comparison to a life of suffereringbfor those poor animals!
Petition to Theresa May MP, Manchester City Council
Stop the Selling of Primates as Pets in the UK
Monkeys do not belong in homes. Many people already believe that it is illegal to keep monkeys as pets in the UK. However loop holes in the law have allowed for monkeys to still be sold as pets despite animal officials calling for a ban. After recently attending a pet shop in Manchester I was appalled to find 5, 8 month old "Jeffrey's monkeys" in cages. In the wild, "Geoffrey's monkeys" are supposedly with their mothers until they are at least 2 years old. Please help me by signing this petition to raise an awareness of this issue so that legislation can change and primates can live how they are supposed to. I want the monkeys I saw to be re-homed in a zoo or sanctuary if they cannot be released back into the wild. No words can explain how heart breaking it is to see these wild animals being kept in such a condition. Video footage of one of the monkeys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHLNHf6xS8Q&feature=youtu.be

Petition to Irish Government and other Governments around the World
Harsher Penalties for Animal Abuse
Governments, and Judges, please pay attention. Animal abuse is on the increase. People who abuse animals are not being punished properly for their crimes against these helpless, innocent beings. It doesn't matter if a person is having a bad day, has fallen on hard times, is an addict, is a sadist or whatever, it is not ok to hurt or injure an animal. It is not ok to abuse an animal in any way. Animal abuse is not normal behaviour and it is connected to other types of abuse also. So many people want this to be recognised and dealt with properly. Enough is enough. Time to punish the offenders properly. Laws need to be made/changed to make animals safer, and harsher sentences need to be handed out to offenders.

Abolish Dolphin Captivity in Australia: Sea World and Coffs Harbour
Dolphins are still kept in captivity in two places in Australia- Dolphin Marine Magic in Coffs Harbour and Sea world in Queensland. Dolphins can travel 160km in the ocean a day and dive up to 45km, an impossible thing to do if contained in captivity. This unnatural, cruel environment is absolutely detrimental to the health and safety of Dolphins. Often, they are starved to perform tricks, stops them from using echolocation to its full extent and suffer anxiety from the confinement. Dolphins have been filmed banging their tails against the sides of their pools in attempt to either escape or commit suicide. You MUST sign this petition. Any tank or enclosed pool is too cramped for a wild animal. Dolphins are not meant to be trained for human entertainment while suffering in tiny, highly artificial chlorinated pools. This issue MUST be solved if you want Dolphins in the wild, happy and free. The death of Tilikum the Killer Whale defines the issue and calls for immediate action.
