#SaveMotoRepublik

On March 9, 2017, Harare City Council arrived at Moto Republik, Zimbabwe’s first creative hub, with the intention of demolishing the structure.  Over 20 municipal police officers and 8 supervisors arrived at Moto Republik and without providing any court order or time to vacate the building, began to hack away at the Moto Republik shipping container structure. Harare City Council’s damage to Moto Republik yesterday was unlawful. According to the Arlington Estate (Jean Pierre Dusabe) case, “Under no circumstances are government departments at liberty to unilaterally and arbitrarily demolish any structures in the absence of a court order authorizing them to do so, whether the structures were built without approval of building plans, or layout plans or without complying with any other legal requirement.” The demolition was halted after the intervention of the Mayor of Harare, Bernard Manyenyeni, and Moto Republik was granted a seven-day grace period. Moto Republik is a law-abiding community building. Moto Republik has fully approved building plans from City Council and regularization fees have been paid in full. On top of this Moto Republik has various council licenses for its activities. According to council zoning, Moto Republik’s stand is not residential but located on Zone 4 B which is for a youth centre or community arts centre. Despite this, the Harare City Council seeks to demolish Moto Republik if the structure is not removed by Wednesday, 15th March. This attack by Harare City Council is unjust and unjustifiable. As stated in the Arlington Estate case, “This is a democratic society in which such conduct, especially on the part of government department whose operations are funded by taxpayers' money, is not justifiable". Moto Republik is an inspiring co-creation workspace that came about as a response to a community who needed a place to meet, work and collaborate. It has given hundreds of young entrepreneurs and creatives a platform to professionalize, network and collaborate on ideas. It is a space that provides hope, jobs and innovation despite overwhelming youth unemployment in a crippled economy. Harare City Council seeks to demolish a place that is home to artists, creative entrepreneurs, innovators, new media activists, citizen journalists, and youth activists. We call on supporters of Moto Republik to stand with us and take action. Help us put pressure on our elected officials. Contact the Mayor, Town Clerk, and Minister of Local Government and ask them to stop the demolition. Share your story and support for Moto Republik on social media using #SaveMotoRepublik. Be ready. If Harare City Council moves forward with the demolition of Moto Republik on the 15th March, be ready to stand with us in solidarity to protest their unlawful actions.   Thank you to all our members & friends for the outpour of emotion & support. You are Moto Republik's reason for being.

Reopen the Harwich to Esbjerg ferry Crossing

We Must Bring This Route Back..... And Soon!  In September 2014, a very special route from the UK to Scandinavia closed down. This route was the last ever route from the UK to Denmark and the last route to Scandinavia. Now we are left with the long drive via Dover/Newcastle or an even longer journey for foot passengers who used to use the route. The DFDS Dover to Calais/Dunkirk service do not allow foot passengers, therefore we are forced to go via Newcastle or seek a space onboard one of DFDS' freight vessels to Gothenburg or Brevik. 'To Travel is to live' - Hans Cristian Andersen  The famous Danish author once said 'To Travel Is To Live' meaning that you can only live once you have travelled. Now the historical route that began during Hans' time has been lost due to various excuses that amount to nothing in the grand scheme of ferry travel in the United Kingdom, and abroad.  Excuses include EU sulphur rules, where insignificant when a vessel has been fitted with scrubbers like the Sirena Seaways after it left the route. Other excuses range from passenger numbers, to duty free rules, which all have been proven to be workable.  I am very proud of where this petition has gone, and as of 11/3/16 we have our first endorsement from the Harwich MP, and we hope to increase our supporter count because of this. We have also been subject to various news articles.  RHEG is very proud to be the biggest online community who want this ferry back, and we will continue to champion this case until we get our ferry back! If you have any questions or queries please contact me at gmoore5@outlook.com or visit our Facebook group.  Thanks for signing, and I hope you can soon enjoy a relaxing crossing to Denmark.  George JOIN OUR ONLINE COMMUNITY: http://facebook.com/groups/418160151706839/?fref=ts

Petition to Elizabeth Truss, Theresa May MP

Stop Court Order Scams

A Parliamentary Enquiry is being commanded by the people into:- CORRUPT Bank staff, Court Staff, and employees of the Police, are colluding to committing SERIOUS CORRUPTION and ORGANISED CRIME of epidemic proportions, against the will of the people. Stealing  from innocent victims, using deception, forgery and VIOLENCE. They can only do this with the complicit support of politicians in an act of FRAUD UPON THE COURT ie bogus Court proceedings and forged Court documents, in a Court Order Scam,  backed up by Violence of the police, upon the victims and their families.   English Judges were ruling in favour of PPI for decades, without exception. Now we know they were only assisting Criminal Bankers to steal from hard working men, women AND THEIR FAMILIES. This meets the legal definition of Rape and Enslavement. No Heart, no soul, no Moral Compass. The Brexit vote has shown that pepole want accountability from Public Servants, triggering the start of a revolution. As a  successful Financial Adviser of three decades, running Church Hill Finance, and winning many awards for my work and community efforts, this COURT ORDER SCAM has only been brought to my attention in a personal capacity. As a result of requesting figures from Neil Eccles and Hamish Kean of my  bank, Kleinwort Benson (Channel Islands) Ltd., myself and family, like many others, are being the subject of Terror and Hate Crime, without any lawful foundation. The fact that they were bankers to Hitler, of Nazzi Germany, was concealed from us. We have been deprived of our home and worldly belongings, in circumstances of terror, from Gangsters and British Police alike.   David John Wood of Lattey and Dawe Solicitors, and corrupt court staff, channelled a bogus application through the Barnet County Court on October 21st  2013, with no supporting evidence, and not even a fee paid for the proceedings.   A judge acting criminally,  (District Judge Nicholas J Parfitt) colluded with others to produce a fake document, purporting to be a Court Order.   On March 14th 2014, a date not reflected in the court records, indicating a private "shadow" Court, a bogus "Possession Order" was manufactured, not bearing a Court Seal nor signature of a Judge, does not refer to Vacant Possession, does not give an address for possession, does not refer to a Judgement (CCJ) upon which an Order For Vacant Possession could have been lawfully obtained. I suggest that it may have come from David Wood's dot matrix printer in the basement, and certainly not from the Official Court.  Definitely contrary  to the County Court Act 1984 s.135, which carries seven years imprisonment.  A crooked judge, will not sign and seal a dodgy paper (ORDER), for liability reasons, but he or she hopes that no one will notice, nor will your lawyer enlighten you, and the police will say it's a CIVIL Matter,  covering up. The perfect crime, but not victim-less. In my own case, a Sergeant Peter Dearden, said he was "SATISFIED"  with documents in my case, which are BOGUS. Idea being, that the other links in the criminal chain is expected to say "It has been Adjudicated" that the documents are good. So Nicholas Parfitt  (DJ) could get away with his forgery, and David John Wood (not registered with the law society), of Lattey and Dawe Solicitors, could get away with stealing my house with help from corrupt police officers acting in private, whilst in uniform.  Not sure what's in it for Sergeant Peter Dearden, as he claims to be "SATISFIED" with bogus documents handed to him by Ben Kovler (PC). The Court File shows, that Ben Kovler was refused copies of the court documents. So where did he get his documents?. Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981. District Judge John Nicholas Parfitt went missing from his job when complaints escalated. The court Manager Richard Jeal, is also missing from his job, after he confirmed lies told by  District Judge Nicholas Parfitt. Sergeant Paul Purdy, who participated in the Criminal Raid, was put in charge of the investigation, and promised to investigate the matter, but is now missing from his job, Christopher Williams (pc) Who lied and threatened me on video on December 1st 2014, is missing from his job. A 'hit and run' scenario. Our MP and cabinet minister Theresa Villiers Expenses Scandal (Who was guilty of expenses maximising), as well as Chris Grayling, the then  Lord Chancellor, both said they cannot interfere in court matters, when they are fully aware, that the proceedings were never ISSUED BY THE COURT, but made up behind closed doors. Theresa Villiers (MP) is in a conflict of interest, as the said bank gave £800,000 shady "donations" to the Tory party in one year alone, and from which she benefits. Police Officers Christopher Williams, and Benjamin Kovler, both said, "If a WARRANT was obtained Fraudulently, they're not interested, it's a civil matter". Yet they arrested me for Squatting/Theft from my home on April 1st 2015, when I am the Owner, Proprietor at the land registry, and beneficiary of the Equitable Interest, with a Fraud Restriction on the title to boot, and have never been evicted. An impossible charge in fact and law. HH Judge Greenwood of Harrow, saw no problem with that whatsoever (no Jurisdiction - CPR 11). GREAT BRITISH JUSTICE. I am determined to obtain justice here. This will give hope to millions who are at a loss as to why the Corrupt lawyers appear to be magically obtaining False Court Orders and WARRANTS, with no circumstances, upon which they could lawfully obtain such Instruments. Should this objective not be met, things are only going to escalate, to the point of potential Breakdown of Law and Order, social unrest, and economic collapse affecting EVERYONE. There are many groups springing up on the internet and elsewhere, to voice this serious malaise which is a PPI waiting to happen, only much bigger. In 2015, 37,000 people lost their homes, and it is estimated, that up to 20,000 could have been Criminal Raids, ASSISTED BY THE POLICE. Nearly all these victims, end up costing the taxpayer and the state, aside from being personal tragedies. The WRONGDOERS get unjust enrichment. We the people have put these public servants in their Positions and are paying them. We must not allow them, to commit the offence of ABUSE OF POSITION, AND FRAUD UPON THE COURT, because of OUR failure to hold them to account.   Successes to date:-  UK Bankers Jailed  HBOS  http://bit.ly/HbosJail  Illegal Clampers Arrested http://bit.ly/ClampArrest Solicitors Charged in Mortgage Fraud  http://bit.ly/SolsFraud  http://bit.ly/WARwrong  http://bit.ly/WarSack Honest Police quit to refuse Corruption  http://bit.ly/PolQuit Police admit false Court Proceedings  http://bit.ly/MotorScam  http://bit.ly/TurnerBOS  Sign and Share this petition against Court Order Scams, on Facebook, Twitter, Email and word of mouth.           Thanks for participating.

Petition to The Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP for Hastings and Rye, Rt. Hon. Brandon Lewis MP

Grant Police Widows Pensions for Life - Don't Make Them Choose Between Future Happiness and Pensions

My husband Colin was a police dog handler and served with the West Midlands Police for 21 years. On Sunday 29th November 1987, he was dispatched with a number of his colleagues to deal with a disturbance; having performed this duty Colin suffered a heart attack and died at the scene – he was 40 years old.  At 24 I found myself a widow, and our 4 year old daughter Kelly lost her best friend in the world.  In 2001 I was faced with a very difficult decision: to keep my police widows' pension, or move in with my partner; although I could ill afford to lose the money living apart was becoming intolerable. Our financial lives have been a roller coaster ride since then but we have been happy. 2006 saw Police Pension Regulations change for new entrants and serving officers eligible to transfer to the new scheme. Should the most awful thing happen, they know that their survivors' benefits are now payable for life, irrespective of whether they remarry or form a new partnership. Changes have also taken place in Northern Ireland: 'Following a change to the Royal Ulster Constabulary Pension Regulations 1988, widows whose widows’ pension ceased on remarriage under the RUC Pension Regulations 1988 will now have their widows pension reinstated from 1 July 2014. For those of us forever overshadowed by the 1987 Police Pension Regulations, we have been told by the government - that in order to make public service pensions affordable for the tax payer, we will not be able to keep our pensions for life should we remarry or cohabit, and those of us who have already chosen love over money will not have our pensions reinstated. They say that the financial cost is too great.  I think that you will agree that our husbands have already paid the ultimate price and given value for money in serving and dying within their communities. If you agree, and think that all police widows should keep their pensions for life – then please sign this petition. Thank you. Cathryn L. Hall CathrynHall@outlook.com Update As a direct result of this campaign the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006) were amended; the amendment came into force January 18th 2016. The widows, widowers and civil partners of police officers killed in the line of duty and covered by the 1987 Police Pension Regulations, will now receive their pensions for life if they were in receipt of a special or augmented pension and remained unmarried and were not living with a partner by 1st April 2015. The survivors of firefighters killed on duty will also benefit from these changes. On October 5th 2015 the Scottish Government announced the same amendment to the pensions paid to the survivors of police officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty in Scotland. Scotland differs from England and Wales in that the survivors who were entitled to a special or augmented pension before they remarried or moved in with a partner - have had their pensions reinstated and back-dated to 1st October 2015. We continue to campaign for parity with the RUC widows in Northern Ireland and lifelong pensions for ALL police widows, widowers and civil partners.
