Provide legal aid to all families at coroner's inquests into terror attacks
No one should have to face a coroner's inquest alone. Losing my partner Kirsty Boden in the London Bridge Terror attack on 3 June 2017 made me see how impossible this would be. She was so brave and lived to help people. But the legal team that helped us through these inquests has not been granted legal aid – and I find this shocking. Right now, there is no automatic right for the families of those killed in terrorist attacks to be legally represented. We're calling for this to change. A coroner's inquest is vital to examine wider circumstances of the attack and find lessons that must be learnt to prevent future deaths. Without representation it would be impossible for families to properly engage in the process. An inquest includes examination of huge volumes of complex material, debates on matters of law, and consideration of significant public interest issues; including the role of the government and security services in keeping the public safe, the response of the emergency services and physical security measures such as barriers in public places. We face continued threats from terrorists, and it is clearly in the public interest that they are examined by legally trained professionals. The denial of funding is especially shocking considering every other public authority at this inquest (the Home Office, police, MI5, ambulance service etc.) had some of the UK's best barristers and solicitors representing them at the expense of the taxpayer. The families of the attackers were represented. Put simply, this is not a level playing field. The foreword to the “Final Report: Review of legal aid for inquests” completed by the Ministry of Justice in February 2019 says: “The Government is determined to ensure that bereaved families are properly supported and able to participate in the inquest process. This includes providing legal aid in cases where it is most needed.” We couldn’t agree more, and we call upon the government to review and update the funding for victims of terrorism to align to its own review. We are not in court by choice and no family should have to face a battle for legal representation in these circumstances. In memory of Kirsty, we would like the Ministry of Justice's policy to change to ensure that it is the right of victims of terrorism facing an inquest to have access to experienced lawyers which are paid for by the state. Please sign our petition.

Freedom for Carola Rackete
EN / DE / ES / IT 29th of June 2019: Refugees of the rescue ship "Sea Watch 3" were finally able to disembark in the port of Lampedusa. Italian authorities had forbidden them to call at the port of the Mediterranean island, which is why they had to persevere on the ship for over two weeks. Eventually, Captain Carola Rackete opposed this ban and decided to dock at the port. A small police boat tried to prevent her from doing so. Shortly thereafter, she was arrested due to being accused of resisting a warship, which violates maritime regulations. She could now possibly face up to ten years of imprisonment. A woman who has saved 53 lives is being treated like a criminal! Seeing pictures of said night made me feel great relief: Finally, the refugees were rescued. They were safe at last. Unfortunately, this was followed by complete speechlessness immediately after. The woman who, in an act of complete selflessness, put the lives of others above her own future, who acted out of pure empathy and compassion, this admirable woman was arrested and is now treated like a criminal. This is why I started this petition. People like Carola Rackete should be celebrated like heroes. Please support my petition to stand up for more humanity and to demand the release of Carola Rackete.

RETRIAL FOR RYAN DEVANEY
I’m the mum of Rory Robertson. This little boy was beaten at the age of ten months from Ryan Devaney. He suffered broken rips broken thigh bones 2 black eyes carpet burns bite marks to his ear. This happened in Dundee Scotland but he now resides in Swindon. His family still stay in Dundee. I have after 3 years put up the recording of his attempted murder on my baby. Iv had to wait this long because the police wouldn’t give me my phones back until I made a formal complaint. For anyone who has not heard this please go onto the status and have a read. This recording was never fully played in court and we think it could have had a major impact if it was played to the jury. Please please please sign this in hopes we can maybe get justice for my beautiful boy. Rory is the smartest most amazing little boy ever and he is totally thriving!! But we need this monster stopped and put behind bars. The night mare and horror me and my family have had to live the last 3 and a half years is heartbreaking it can only with the public’s help get better from here!!! I beg everyone to please sign and help me as a mother get my boy justice

Introduce Tyler's And Jordan's Law - we need tougher sentences for knife crime
My son Tyler Thompson was killed in a stabbing in November 2015. Still to this day I can’t believe he is gone. The teenager who admitted to killing my son had been caught carrying a knife before. All he received back then was a caution. He has now been sentenced to 9 years for Tyler’s murder; of which he will serve only half. I know my son would still be alive right now if the teenager that killed him had been given a stronger punishment the first time he was caught in possession of a knife. That’s why I am calling for stronger sentencing for knife crimes - to stop other young lives being robbed. When Tyler’s killer was sentenced, the judge responsible said: "This case illustrates graphically the danger posed by young men carrying knives on the street”. Latest statistics show that repeat offenders are escaping prison sentences and those convicted of murder or manslaughter are receiving low and inconsistent sentences - a caution is not enough. This must stop. NOW. Knife crime is not just a problem in Leicester. And it’s not just a problem in London. This is a NATIONAL CRISIS. I have set up this petition with a good friend of the family Kerry Norton. Members of our community, along with my local Councillor Teresa Aldred and local MP Keith Vaz are also working with me on this campaign to change the law, but we need your help to make change happen. A bill has been presented to Parliament that would introduce tougher sentences for people involved in knife crimes but now the election is underway all progress could be lost. We need to stand together, make noise and tell politicians no matter who is elected, they need to be tougher on knife crime. WE NEED TO UNITE. We need to urge our leaders to act now and introduce a law that would: increase the minimum custodial sentence on conviction for possession of a knife or other offensive weapon for an offender aged 18 years or over to increase the minimum period of a detention and training order for a person aged 16 or 17; to set a minimum custodial sentence on conviction for an offender in possession of a knife or other weapon and intending to commit any offence or having such a weapon available to use in committing murder; and for connected purposes.

Exile Gina Miller from the UK in the event of a no deal Brexit
Gina Miller is a constant disruptive voice in British politics and pedaller of illegal action to thwart the UK leaving the EU as a pro-remainer who refuses to give up the ghost and call it a day. Short of being arrested, we believe that this is a more fitting punishment for Miller that she live the EU dream, abroad, only if a "no deal" is finalised after the 31st of October 2019.. She is constantly given a platform in which to be heard and launch her corrupt lawsuits against a fundamental democratic vote that was put forward in black and white to our great nation, while she has no sphere of influence over the direction of Brexit, is not a person of interest, continues her attempts to assist in defying the will of the people. 17.4 million people, to be precise. The least of her charges should be: contempt of court, obstruction of justice, forging a lawsuit and political meddling. I hereby declare this petition a good will message to her personally and with the help of British Parliament consider the sincerity of this petition, remove Gina Miller permanently from the UK should it be the case that the end result of the negotiating process is a no deal Brexit. I hope for this change to be discussed and televised in The house of commons or Parliament if necessary, to reach a formal conclusion by the end of 2019 if we reach 100,000 I will be immediately available for comment or interview (only if this petition is successful) should it be requested there after and not before. Kind Regards: England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Sexual Assault Shouldn't Get Away With This
I am writing to you all to help me get JUSTICE! I was sexually assaulted in work by a male. ALL EVIDENCE WAS THERE. on the day of the trial, none of the video footage was presented by the Criminal Justice System, which in turn wasn't handed over by police. The male got away by lying through his teeth IF the video footage would have been presented it would have shown all his words were lies under oath. While he gets to walk free to LIVING with what he did, able to go ahead and do it again to someone again. I live with the constant fear of it happening again. I urge you all to PLEASE help me get back into the courtroom, with the CORRECT evidence and bring the CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM out of their ways to bring the correct sentencing to the male who has mentally and emotionally ruined not only my life but the way I hold my own. This needs to stop! sexual assault is NOT okay on either females OR males. Help me by helping others like me.

Victims of stalkers to be informed the date of their stalkers release from prison
My name is Lorraine Mitchell. My stalking ordeal began back in the summer of 2007. Unlike the majority of stalking cases. The man who stalked me for 10 years was a stranger to me. Until he first approached me outside my work , I had never seen him before. I had no idea his name or where he lived. However he knew everything about me. He stopped me just as i got into my car and asked me out on adate. When I refused, he kept insisting and when i was about to drive off, he disclosed that he had been following me for 2 years ..he knew my name, my address, the names of my 3 children, he knew i had been divorced a year and that i was seeing someone. For the next 10 years, I lived in fear of my life from this man who would not leave me alone. He would follow me in his car, stop me on my dog walks, send me inappropriate messages on social media , even when i blocked him he would set up a new profile.. differant name but same photograph. Every time i rejected him, my car tyres got let down, my car was moved, my beloved cat was killed , and then later dug up and was decapitated. He he even followed me in his car to the police station when i went to ask for help! Even though i reported him to the police, the police did not take me seriousky until 2017. Finally he was arrested , charged and sentanced to 4 years in prison. I cannot start to tell you the impact this had on me psychologically and physically. I thought i was going mad, imagining things and even started to doubt my own sanity. In early 2017 i was diagnosed with complex post traumatic stress disorder. However as soon as i met up with Sam Taylor Director of Sussex Stalking Support in 2017, I suddenly felt as though a weight had lifted. Her knowledge and understsnding of the complexities of stalking, and also the procedures i could put in place was phenominal. I suddenly felt believed and realised that my fears were real and that this was a dangerous man. Later in court i found out he did have 23 previous convictions which included weapons. The support Sam has given me is life changing. I cant thank her enough for all the support she has given me, and also in raising awareness of this dreadful crime..which was not been taken seriously enough. And still is not being taken seriously enough. I am now working as a volunteer at Sussex Stalking Support and it shocks me to hear other victims stories and how they are being let down by the criminal Justice System. The last 2 years , I have felt safe, but have flown by and Sherzad Salih, the man who stalked me will be released into the public this August. Only a couple of weeks away. I have been told by the probation department that I am not allowed to know the day of his release, until the day he is released. On the day of his release I will be phoned by the probation and it I will be informed that he has been released into the public. I will also then be told of only the conditions of his release, which apply specifically to me. I have been informed by the probation office that it is not their policy to inform victims of the exact date of their perpetrators release from prison in order to protect the perpetrator! This means every day in August, I will wake up thinking, " Is this the day he will be released?" I cannot plan holidays in August now, as I do not want to leave my adult son at home, incase the stalker turns up. Stalking is about power and control, and once again this man has control over me. I feel that victims needs should be taken into consideration when perpetrators are released. Especially victims of stalkers. Why are his needs so more important than mine? Once I know what date he is going to be released I can then prepare myself. In the past he has repeatedly broken restraining orders carrying weapons. I believe he still poses a significant risk to me, my family and my pets. I have realised also, that I am not alone in this horrendous situation. All victims of crime are not allowed to know the date of their perpetrators release. As Stalking is about obsession, fixation and is relentless and no treatment has been found to cure this. I am petitioning that all victims of stalking and domestic abuse are given the date of their perpetrators release into the public. This is so that victims can prepare themselves and keep themselves safe. I have since received an apology from Sussex Police and have been ask to speak at Police training days on stalking. However on hearing other victims stories, I feel changes are needed which could prevent lives been lost and damaged. Stalking is about Power and Control. Victims have their lives totally controlled by these awful perpetrators. Please help me to have our voices heard and I would be so grateful if you would sign my heartfelt petition. Thank you.
