Petition to State Polititions, Malcom Turball

Medicinal Canabis For Chronic Diseases and Illnesses Australia

PLEASE SHARE TWEET GET THIS PETITION ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA Im am personally a long term sufferer of a chronic disease. I suffer from Rhemathoid Arthritis as well as Fibromyalgia. Ive tried so many different treatment plans for pain management and have found none to be effective. These conditions are non curable but are pain regulated treatments. There are several other conditions that are chronic diseases as well as being extreamly debilitating for a wide percentage of our country. Please get behined this petition and make it known that for a great majority to treat our medical conditions and diseases this may well be our only way to live a normal functioning lease on life. Australia is so far behined with this form of medical treatment that is not only approved by law in other countries but is a also highly successful treatmemt for us all. Lets get this done Australia!! We need all the support we can get from you all to push our Govenment to pass this Law and change the lives of a wide population who are effected daily. As they say its hard to hear one voice in a crowded place but easily can hear when its thousands!!!! My goal here is to achieve enough support and signitures to put forward to our Australian Priminister to hopefull help thousands of people who suffer in silence everyday to be able to have an opportunity to have their voices heard and action done right by us all. Id like to thank you for your support in advance.

Improve and Properly fund the South Australian Housing Trust.

Dear reader, I am a Young South Australian who lives in a South Australian Housing Trust House with my Mum, my dream is to be a politician one day when I am an Adult. The State Government says they want to upgrade all SAHT homes built before 1968 by 2030. They still need to upgrade those built between 1968 and 1990 because they are becoming outdated and need upgrading as well as the fact that the homes are colder in winter and Hotter in summer due to poor insulation and the use of asbestos which remains in the homes.   The State Government are not building enough new homes and are continuing to Privatise SAHT, which has been happening since the late 1990's/Early-mid 2000's Housing SA does not use In house publicly owned contractors like SAHT used to, they use private contractors who I and others are concerned do things very poorly, Residents have also expressed concern to me that they are paying money for basic maintenance. SAHT has given management of many properties to Charities or service organisations that often promise many things and do not deliver, They now have a goal of turning a further 4000 over. SAHT need to be the face once again, right now people get mixed up with SAHT, Housing SA and other Government agencies. Here is my 10 point plan for a better South Australian Housing Trust, There are others, however these are the main ones: 1. New Logo and Slogan for SAHT and a Department to be named "Department of Public Housing." They would also therefore have a Minister or Cabinet minister dedicated to SAHT as well as other services. SAHT would be the place that people see and deal with, not Housing SA. 2. All new and current Housing Trust Homes to stay publicly owned, maintained and upgraded. The Federal Government should also contribute funding. 3. Build many Quality New Homes within the next several Years including in Rural/Outer Suburbs, using SA Materials where possible and using stronger, better quality materials that have better energy efficiency. 4. Cap rent at a fair rate. 5. Substantially Upgrade all Housing Trust homes built before 1990 with new insulation, Kitchens, and Bathrooms, and, fixing structural damage like Concrete Cancer. Upgrade homes built between the start of SAHT in the 1930's and 1980 by 2025/2030 and homes built between 1980 and 1990 by 2035. 6. Install Solar panels and batteries on as many Housing Trust houses as possible, including on all new houses. 7. Make all new SAHT Homes accessible for those who have Special Needs. 8. Re-Introduce Publicly owned Maintenance that Does not bill Tenants for maintenance. 9. Better support for Tenants, especially those with Special Needs, Older Persons, Victims of domestic Violence, young persons and those who are very disadvantaged. Better support includes, rent checks, checking in with tenants about how they feel where SAHT is concerned support to get to know other local community members, Drug addiction help with Tenant Permission etc. 10. Support for Rural communities with more Housing, support for farmers, Indigenous communities etc. South Australians should be able to be proud of Public Housing and how it helps many Lower income Families, Pensioners, Singles, Young Adults, those with Special Needs etc. Right now they cannot be proud, the system is broken and needs fixing immediately! There are major Economic Advantages to making sure Everyone has a Home, including the fact that those people can participate in the community easier. I have contacted the new Premier Mr. Steven Marshall about Housing Trust and am awaiting a response from him. Thank You for reading this, I know it is long, and Please sign to get politicians to support a Better Housing Trust.

Petition to Malcolm Turnbull, Barack Obama

To have pedophiles locked away for good and never allowed back in society

We see it on the news, we hear about it on the radios, we hear it from people we know and some of us experience it first hand.  How are we protecting our children from these types of people? How are we helping those so young who have been affected, when they see their attacker walking the streets again? How are we showing children who have been Victims, that this is unacceptable behavior from adults and help with future mental health issues???  It's time to start locking these sick people up and throwing away the keys. Just like murderers, they Should be given a life sentence. If there is no room in prisons, stop locking up those who pose no threat to society.  Pedophile rings are rampant and always happening, the government has shown no care for their people and their country, allowing these types of people walk among us with protection on their side, it makes us question our leaders, our judges in court rooms, any person with a higher power that are able to do something.  We question them by wondering,if are they pedophiles themselves? Do they find themselves turned on, instead of disgusted, after watching the evidence of these innocent children being tortured? If so, where are the intensive background checks on these people? Who does the background checks on those with more power then the regular Joe's?  The government wants to help Australia apparently, so why have they still done nothing about this situation??? We want answers, no, better yet. We, the people of Australia, we want justice and to know our children are safe and to see these scum locked up for life.  We want better background checks on those who have the right to choose what type of punishment these kinds of sick beings get.  People of Australia, it's time to make a stand for ourselves and show the gorvenment that we won't take this anymore. We want changes in the system that throws the keys away. We want these people, men and women, to pay the price.  Enough is enough. I'm know I'm tired of hearing these people have been released back into a neighborhood, with no idea which one it is, while they be protected and living amongst children, they so blantly hurt for pleasure. Who agrees with me?  Lock them up for good
