Ban Cosmetic Testing on Animals
Banning cosmetic testing on animals "In a huge victory for animals, the European Union (EU), Israel, and India have banned the sale of any cosmetics or cosmetics ingredients that have been tested on animals. These marketing bans mean that companies all around the world will have to abandon animal testing for cosmetics they want to sell in these huge markets. The bans follow vigorous campaigning by PETA, its international affiliates, and members and supporters that included public protests, phone calls, and tens of thousands of e-mails. Unfortunately, there’s no ban on testing cosmetics or household products on animals in the U.S., so companies that make and sell their products here can choose to conduct tests on animals. Alternatives As hard as it is to believe, animal experiments for cosmetics and household products continue even though non-animal tests are widely available. Instead of measuring how long it takes a chemical to burn the cornea of a rabbit’s eye, manufacturers can now drop that chemical onto cornea-like 3D tissue structures produced from human cells. Likewise, human skin cultures can be grown and purchased for skin irritation testing. Read more here about these and dozens more non-animal tests currently in use that are faster and more accurate at predicting human reactions to a product than animal tests ever were. U.S. Environmental Groups Ignore 21st Century Science Even more incomprehensible is the continued demand by some U.S. environmental organizations for more animal tests for cosmetics products, even though the rest of the world is moving away from these archaic methods and toward modern, more effective non-animal methods. For example, a scientist from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) acknowledged that there “are non-animal tests that are really valuable, informative, cheaper, and quicker” than animal tests yet publicly disagreed with the EU ban on testing cosmetics on animals, claiming that “we need to test these products on living animals” instead of using the widely accepted non-animal alternatives that have been shown to be predictive of human health effects. It would appear that the scientists at the NRDC have never bothered to read the National Academy of Sciences report “Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy” and are ignoring the sea change that has occurred in the last quarter-century regarding our understanding of biological processes. These advances in our understanding have led to the development of test methods that can look directly at cellular mechanisms rather than at the crude and uninformative results that come from using animals" taken from PETA.org If Israel can ban it even though all the stuff they've been through in2015 why can't we
Petition to Google, Inc, Diamond and Silk
YouTube Should Support The Right To Free Speech Without Censorship and Discrimination.
Diamond and Silk were YouTube latest targets. YouTube demonetizing 95 percent of their videos stating: "Not Suitable For All Advertisers" YouTube stated: that it would be "implementing broader demonetization policies around content that is harassing or attacking people based on their race, religion, gender or similar categories." YouTube goes on to say "We'll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren't illegal, but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism." "If we find that these videos don't violate our policies but contain controversial, religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The Videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won't be recommended, won't be monetized and won't have key features including comments, suggested videos and likes."

Petition to Donald Trump
President Trump: Please Tie Any Agreement with China to Ending Yulin Dog Meat Festival
Between 1,000 to 15,000 dogs are tortured and killed during the annual Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, Guangxi China. The region also is a dog meat livestock producer contributing to the 10 to 20 million dogs killed for meat in China each year. The consumption of dog meat is said to have a cooling effect on the body (it doesn't) during the hot summer solstice. Many falsely believe that the more pain that is felt by the dog, the better the effects of the meat. Others contend that the pain inflicted is the result of convenience in slaughtering. Dogs are killed by means of bludgeoning, bleeding out, stabbing, blowtorching, hanging, boiling alive, among other methods, and often in front of other dogs or puppies. An estimated 97,000 tons of dog meat sold per year generates 30 billion yuan ($448 million U.S. dollars) annually through this practice. The World Health Organization has linked this to the spread of cholera and rabies. And more and more politicians in the U.S. are condemning it. See H.Res.752 — 114th Congress (2015-2016). But, yet, the ten day festival is still on for this June of 2017. International Agreements with China: We call for signatories to a petition to ask United States President Donald Trump to tie any international agreements with China to ending this barbarism. This petition was initiated by Attorney Michelle Hubbard of Boston.
Petition to Charlie Baker
Pass the Safe Communities Act in Massachusetts
This petition is in support of The Safe Communities Act to make Massachusetts a sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants. President-elect Donald Trump has promised throughout his campaign to round up and deport millions of undocumented immigrants from all over the United States. As of November 13th, 2016, he underlined his resolve to begin carrying out this plan immediately, tearing apart families and communities. As a state that voted against Trump in every single county, we are obligated to disavow the anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia that have been core tenets of Trump's presidential campaign. We must act now. The effects of Trump's inhumane proposal have already become clear. Children are terrified that their parents will be deported and the Boston Public School system has called in counselors to help students process their fears. Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are the lifeblood of this country. They are our friends, our neighbors, our classmates, our colleagues. They deserve to know that they will not be removed from their homes, separated from their loved ones, or detained indefinitely with no recourse. They deserve to know that we, the residents of Massachusetts, will not tolerate their persecution.Contact info to call your governor and state legislators!

Petition to President of the United States
Silence the criminal NOT the VICTIM
I want criminals that have been truly convicted of a crime and all appeals lost to not continue to use social media or the internet from prison or through a third party to keep victimizing their victims. Convicted criminals behind bars should have no access to internet saving taxpayers money. Make the prisoner pay for stamps that keeps our postal workers employed. If a person receiving mail from a pen pal or family member convicted of a crime releases information from the conviction they can be charged as can the person or persons that gave them the information to post on social media or the internet. If the victim is under the age of 21 and information is released by the criminal they should be given more time. The following is what happened to me over the years which brought me to want to make a difference for victims of a crime. In 1999 my father Hubert Babb was found guilty, by a jury of his peers for child molestation and child abuse brought against him by his own two daughters. Found guilty and given a life sentence plus sixty-five years. I, Huney Dee Huchton his oldest daughter, turned Hubert Babb in for child abuse in 1989. My father would spend the next ten years going in and out of jail for child abuse. My sisters and I would spend time going in and out of fosters homes. My father would take plea deals to get leaner sentences for his abusive actions. He would be told upon release to have no contact with me, or sometimes no contact with me and my sisters. However he would violate these orders and come right back home. Every time he went away he promised us kids when he was behind bars that he was a changed man. Then when he would get out he would return home, and the violence and rape against my sisters and I would get worse because he was angrier then when he went to jail. When I was 16 my father was released from a road camp prison after serving an 18 month sentence on a plea deal he had taken again for child abuse. Once again he returned home angrier and the scariest I could remember him ever being. I decided I was old enough to now leave. I told him upon my exit "I find out that you ever touch one of my sisters you will spend the rest of your life behind bars that is a promise" As you can see in 1999 I full filled my promise to him. With all that I thought I could now move on in life just stay away from his family and him and he would never be able to hurt my sisters and I again. I was wrong. In 2013 I discovered that the man had a Facebook page that discussed everything over social media and named me and my sister in it, so I called the warden of his prison and his page was taken down. Not longer after I found a new page called Innocent people in jail. When you visit this social media page this man has blasted my name, my sisters name, many others names and dates of birth. Not only was my personal information being released without my permission people could now see that I had been a victim of a child sex crime. I asked Facebook to take the page down, and they have refused saying he isn't violating anything. Then my sister gets a call one day in regards to a petition he has blasted on the internet listing "his daughters" as people involved in the so called "conspiracy" to keep him behind bars. Once again I felt victimized having everything blasted on the internet, and I had to ask why is he allowed to continue to make me a victim. Why is a person sentenced to life plus sixty-five years allowed to get information onto social media or the internet to release information about the victim of his crime? Should a criminal found guilty by a jury of their peers for committing atrocities be allowed to continuously harass or threaten their victim(s) on the internet or social media? Is it truly fair to the victim of any crime to have personal information regarding them or the crime posted on the internet or social media sites without their permission? Please sign this petition if you agree that convicted criminals should be not be allowed to continually victimize their victims through cyber space (i.e. social media or the internet). Convicted criminals should be silenced, and victims should be heard and allowed to heal.
Petition to Donald Trump
Rename 'skeletons' to 'spooky bois'
We have an urgent matter to discuss. The name skeleton, while somewhat spooky in itself, is not spooky enough. And what is the spookiest name we can come up with? Spooky boi. If we get enough signatures we will bring this petition to the scientists and Donald Trump so that he can make the name change official.
Petition to Donald Trump, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
We want to see Trump's tax returns.
President Trump calls reports of his alleged compromising ties to Russian businesses and government officials, “FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.” He can prove it by releasing his tax returns. Who does our president owe money to? Can they use his debt to manipulate our Commander-in-Chief? Is he receiving income from foreign sources to his businesses from which he has yet to divest? The answers are easy to discover if he releases his tax returns. In a press conference, Trump told the assembled reporters, “The only people who seem to care about my tax returns are you people here.” Our country does care. In fact, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll, 74% of Americans (including 53% of Republicans) want him to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS. Every major presidential candidate for the past 40 years has voluntarily released their tax returns. President Nixon even released his tax returns while under audit. Why does President Trump refuse to release his taxes if he has nothing to hide? Please sign and SHARE this petition calling on President Trump to RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS NOW.
