Petition to Amazon, Lego

Stoppt nationalsozialistisches Spielzeug bei Amazon

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren der Firmen LEGO und AMAZON, mit einem Appell an Ihre Verantwortung gegenüber Kindern, möchte ich mich in diesem offenen Brief an Sie wenden und hoffe damit, bei Ihnen auf offene Ohren zu stoßen.Auf der Suche nach LEGO Figuren auf Amazon bin ich auf etwas gestoßen, das für Sie von enormer Dringlichkeit ist, denn dort werden von anderen Herstellern Figuren im LEGO-Stil angeboten, die kompatibel sind zu den original LEGO Figuren, die jedoch Offiziere, Soldaten, usw. der Waffen-SS darstellen und somit den Nationalsozialismus verharmlosen.Diese Figur ist ein Beispiel für viele andere:https://www.amazon.de/Wehrmacht-Soldat-Heinz-MG-Sch%C3%BCtze-Prime-Line/dp/B016Z372VK/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1512506831&sr=8-5&keywords=wehrmacht+lego Wie man unschwer erkennen kann, sehen diese Figuren den Original LEGO Figuren zum Täuschen ähnlich, zeigen aber Nationalsozialistische Symbole wie den Reichsadler, das Eiserne Kreuz und die Totenköpfe auf dem Kragen.Zusätzlich verwenden die Hersteller dieser Figuren oft den Namen LEGO in ihrer Produktbeschreibung bzw. beanspruchen, original LEGO Teile zu verwenden.Diese Figuren stellen eines der unmenschlichsten Regime der Weltgeschichte dar und durch das Spielen mit solchen akzeptieren Kinder diese Uniformen, Waffen, usw. als normal, was eine nicht zu akzeptierende Beeinflussung der Kinder darstellt. Darüberhinaus stellen solche Figuren eine große Gefahr für den Ruf der Firmen  LEGO und AMAZON dar. Aus diesem Grund bitte ich Sie inständig, gegen die Hersteller solcher Figuren, wenn möglich auch rechtlich, vorzugehen und auch Amazon auf diesen Fall aufmerksam zu machen, denn jedem anständigen Bürger kann es nur eine grauenhafte Vorstellung sein, dass solche Figuren bald unter dem Weihnachtsbaum liegen könnten und so in die Hände von Kindern geraten könnten.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dear Ladies and Gentleman, appealing to your sense of resposibility and in hope for your open ears and eyes, I write this very important letter.Searching for LEGO figures on the German Amazon Website, I found many examples of LEGO typed and compatible figures from other companies depicting German National-Socialism officers, soldiers, etc.Here is one figure, which stands as an example for many others: https://www.amazon.de/Modbrix-8820-Minifiguren-Wehrmacht-Panzertruppe/dp/B0167HI2VI/ref=pd_sim_21_9?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=MPXD6JZSAX6RC779G0VB As you can see, these figures look very alike to the original LEGO product, but show National-Socialsm symbols as the Nazi-Eagle and skulls. In addition to that, products like this often use the LEGO name in their product description and sometimes claim to be made from original LEGO parts.Depicting one of the most unhuman regimes in world history, these figures represent the most opposite to the values LEGO stand for. Throughout playing with these figures, children accept the depicted uniforms, weapons, etc. as normal and with that comes an extremely dangerous influential potential on children. After all, these figures are a threat to the good name of LEGO and AMAZON. Therefore I sincerely ask you to step against that kind of influence to children and to consider legally steps against the producers of these figures.

Rettet Bohsdorf - Save Hollycamp

An die Spremberger Stadtversammlung: Bitte erhalten und sanieren Sie das Ferienobjekt am Felixsee! Nachdem die Stadtverordnetenversammlung Spremberg im Frühjahr die Sanierung des Ferienobjektes Bohsdorf aus dem städtischen Haushalt gestrichen hat, gibt es nun im Juli 2017 wieder einen Funken Hoffnung für den Erhalt der bundesweit beliebten Anlage. Die Stadt und der aktuelle Betreiber sollen auf Wunsch der Abgeordneten noch einmal auf Arbeitsebene eine für beide Seiten tragfähige Lösung suchen, die eine Sanierung beeinhalten könnte.   - english version at the bottom - Mit großer Sorge haben wir die Schließungspläne der Spremberger Stadtverordnetenversammlung für das Feriendorf am Felixsee vernommen. Nicht nur, dass das Objekt im Jahr 2017 seinen 40. Geburtstag feiern wird und somit eine Anlage mit Tradition und Geschichte ist – wir glauben auch, dass die Anlage ein ganz außergewöhnliches Kleinod ist, das unabhängig von Tradition oder Historie nicht geschlossen werden darf.Das Ferienobjekt Bohsdorf bietet Jahr für Jahr Hunderten von Kindern, Jugendlichen, Teilnehmern, Besuchern einen großartigen Raum, um Kreativität auszuleben, sich weiterzuentwickeln oder einfach nur eine ganze Menge Spaß zu haben. Gerade die Abgeschiedenheit, die Nähe zur Natur, zu Aussichtsturm und Badesee schaffen eine Umgebung, die Besucher aus der ganzen Welt als magisch bezeichnen. Die Bungalows, das Miteinander, die engagierten Betreuer haben an genau diesem Ort schon vielen, vielen Menschen zu großartigen Erfahrungen und lang anhaltenden Freundschaften verholfen.Ganz unabhängig vom schwer zu beschreibenden Flair des Standortes gibt es auch objektive Vorteile gegenüber den von Ihnen erwägten Ideen wie die Errichtung eines Feriencamps am Freibad in Spremberg. Das Feriendorf am Felixsee ist gerade durch die Abgeschiedenheit, die Ruhe, die Freiheit zu einer Marke geworden, welche Jugendliche aus ganz Deutschland und selbst darüber hinaus anzieht. Das lässt sich in der Spremberger Stadtmitte nicht reproduzieren und Spremberg würde ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal verlieren, welches Jahr für Jahr viele Besucher in die Region bringt. Probleme wie eine striktere Nachtruhe aufgrund der naheliegenden Wohngebiete oder geringere kreative Möglichkeiten und Freiheiten u.A. im filmischen Bereich dadurch, dass sich ein Freibad aufgrund der Persönlichkeitsrechte der Besucher eben nicht so gut zum Videodreh eignet, kämen auf einen neuen Standort zu. Gerade der Kontrast zum Stadtleben und die Beschäftigung mit sich selbst machen das Objekt am Felixsee aus, welches in den vergangenen Jahren von wortwörtlich Tausenden von Besuchern gar nicht überschwänglich genug gelobt werden konnte. Nicht zuletzt, da auch 75% EU-Förderung möglich wären, bitten wir, Unterzeichner aus ganz Deutschland, Sie um die Erhaltung und Sanierung dieses einzigartigen Objekts!   ### English ### Save and restore the holiday facility in Bohsdorf! We have heard about the plans of the local politicans from Spremberg to close down the camp location at Felixsee and strongly oppose it, because we believe that the object in question is an extraordinary treasure which should not be shut down!Over the years, the facility in Bohsdorf has offered possibilities to explore creativity, engage with peers and have lots of fun to hundreds and hundreds of children, adolescents and visitors. Many have described the atmosphere, created by the surrounding woods and the lake, as magical.We also think that there are several concrete reasons why the current location is superior to the idea of a new holiday facility in the city Spremberg itself. The solitude and the freedom that the current location enable have made this facility into a brand that attracts young people from all over Germany and beyond. We do not think that this can be duplicated with a new construction, which would also bring with it problems like noise disturbances for the neighbors and less creative oppurtunities. We think the contrast of the holiday village to city life make up a great part of its appeal. Last but not least, we want to mention the fact that EU grants would be possible for the renovation, and we ask you to save the facility!

Petition to Roman Catholic Archdiocese Munich and Freising

Newly Discovered Birgittine Manuscripts at Risk: Monastery Altomünster, Germany

DiscoveryThe Birgittine scholars who met in Altomünster for a symposium in October 2015 did not expect to discover an unknown library containing uncataloged books including illuminated cantus sororum manuscripts, normative texts, and devotional literature dating back even before the founding of this monastery at the end of the 15th century. Art historian Eva Lindqvist Sandgren and musicologists Michelle Urberg and Karin Strinnholm Lagergren spent the day following the symposium exploring and photographing the collection. Volker Schier and Corine Schleif immediately sought and received permission from the prioress Sister Apollonia Buchinger to have the collection assessed, and began to procure funding for a preliminary inventory and catalog, ClosureThen equally unexpectedly in December 2015 the Vatican announced the closure of this papal monastery. Shortly thereafter the dissolution began. This still working monastery, housed in a historic architectural complex including a nuns’ gallery and other specifically Birgittine details, the last major work of the rococo architect Johann Michael Fischer, with furnishings, was closed to scholars and journalists. Internally, locks and steel doors were installed prohibiting even the remaining nuns from entering the chapter house, the library and other portions of the monastery. Many significant works of art were removed from their long-standing locations in what remains of the nuns’ tract.See news articles: http://www.sueddeutsche.de/kultur/forschungskrimi-der-buecherschatz-in-der-einkaufstuete-1.3132831http://bigstory.ap.org/article/81cd01800c3f49bab3f959ffe4171863 HistoryThe Birgittenkloster, Altomünster, is one of only three remaining foundations from the original order founded by Saint Birgitta of Sweden in the 14th century. Altomünster is the only Birgittine monastery continuously inhabited since its initial settlement. It is believed that the present library constitutes over 500 books, including manuscripts and incunabula, as well as associated archival sources. With at least 14 late-medieval antiphoners, possibly as many as 30 processionals, and a large collection of 18th-century liturgical manuscripts, the collection promises to more than double the known sources documenting the performance of Birgittine chant. The unique illuminations, made for or by nuns, will serve to extend current understanding of women’s religious practices during the late Middle Ages and early modern periods. PetitionWe, the undersigned, ask the papal administration of monastic orders and the diocese of Munich and Freising to guarantee the preservation and protection of the ensemble of manuscripts, printed books and associated archival documents of the Birgittine monastery at Altomünster. The protection of this collection and scholarly access to it must be guaranteed for present and future generations. Any cleaning or restoration must be undertaken by specialists in compliance with current guidelines of the Bayerische Amt für Denkmalpflege and the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and cataloging according to the standards set by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

Remove the fictitious movie "Soaked in Bleach" from the market

Dear Mr. Statler, We are a bunch of Nirvana fans who saw your movie "Soaked in Bleach". It has come to light that three experts in the movie were heavily edited to fit into the murder narrative. The truth is that Kurt Cobain took his own life. This case was investigated by several experts and overlooked by independent experts. Krist Novoselic spoke out what he thinks about the movie, as well did many others like Nirvana's first manager Ryan Aigner. To this day Tom Grant has not presented any valid evidence that shows that Kurt Cobain was murdered in a conspiracy plot improvised by his wife Courtney Love Cobain. Tom Grant strongly plays with hearsay and stories that do not match with content in the Seattle Police Department reports on the case. Furthermore it appears that Tom Grant violated very serious and important laws criminalizing electronic eavesdropping. And you had no problem to use this material in "Soaked in Bleach" (in an edited form). People who will watch your movie will mistake the fictitious documentary (as well mentioned in the end credits of your very own movie) as a true event and continue to "fight" for something that does exist only in a few heads like Tom Grant's or Richard Lee's. Those people have never been questioned about their motives to see a woman and her supposed conspirers go to prison for a crime they didn't commit. Since 23 years these people experience immense bullying on the internet (and on a few occasions in real life, too) by people who believe in the murder narrative. And even Kurt Cobain's daughter is the victim of the same terrible behaviour of "Soaked in Bleach" fans. As if it is not enough to already have lost a loved one by suicide. But to get wrongly accused of murder without valid evidence is a step too far. Especially when the suicide is consistent with the investigation of the Seattle Police Department Homicide Unit and independent experts who were shown in your movie but their information was omitted. We would like you to rethink your "entertaining work" that didn't include journalistic work. Many people are not aware of what a documentary drama is. It is more drama than a documentary. We would like you to also think about what this movie does to suicide prevention. We believe it damages the work of thousands of people who want to help suicidal people. It doesn't help people who still struggle to understand why Kurt Cobain took his own life when you romanticise or glorify the death of Kurt Cobain as fake murder. Please Mr. Statler, remove this movie from the market. It is a disservice to the general public by misrepresenting the facts of the case. Furthermore we would not be disappointed if you would present the entire interviews from the experts in an uncut form. The editings in the movie are now public knowledge. But the content of the omitted information is still not fully available to educate the public about the #CobainCase and to restore the reputation of the entire Seattle Police Department Homicide Unit and edited experts and friends of Cobain in your movie.

We are looking forward to an adult like reaction from you, Mr. Statler, in the same way like you demand it from the Seattle Police Department.
