Law enforcement on Noise Pollution in Kilimani and Kileleshwa Residential areas

Kileleshwa and Kilimani Residents in Nairobi City County are raising concern as their Human Rights are been violated  under our constitution, Chapter 4, Bill of rights, Article 29, by social and commercial activities which are contributing to noise pollution in residential areas and the law does not permit. As per the National Environment (Noise standard and control) Regulation, 2003, the maximum permissible noise levels, Part 1, Schedule C, Mixed residential (with commercial and entertainment) should be 45 decibels at night, this is not being complied with by the clubs and bars.  The establishments operates Monday - Sunday until 3AM. All licensing and legal conditions are clearly breaching laws of the Republic of Kenya. Environment noise pollution consists of all unwanted sounds in our community that is a threat to business, health and well-being. Our children cannot sleep. We the undersigned would like to petition Nairobi City County Water, Energy, Forestry, Environment and Natural Resources Sector and NEMA to take action against these noise polluters by regulating and enforcing strict opening and closing times for these bars and nightclubs and also enforcing a limit on the volume of music they are allowed to play and all clubs to install sound proof. Please help us bring some sanity and peace to our environment.

Petition to Liverpool FC, John Henry, Fenway Sports Group

Call on Liverpool FC to terminate its deal with Chinese company, Tibet Water Resources Ltd

On 24 July 2017, Liverpool FC signed a deal with a Chinese water company that profits from operating in occupied Tibet, making Tibet Water Resources Limited the club's Official Regional Water Partner in China. Despite its name, Tibet Water Resources Limited is a Chinese company that bottles and sells water from Tibet; a country that has been under Chinese occupation since 1950.  Tibetans are subject to rampant human rights violations, including torture, enforced disappearances, excessive use of force against peaceful demonstrators, restrictions on freedom of religion, movement, expression, association and assembly as well as curbs on their cultural rights.  Freedom House, the US based think tank, has ranked Tibet as the second worst place in the world in terms of civil and political rights. To put this in perspective, Syria is currently ranked as number one. The partnership was signed, despite a statement issued by the club in November 2016, that Liverpool FC “has fostered and continues to foster an organisational culture that respects dignity and human rights” and that “conducting business with high ethical standards is fundamental to this culture.” Tell Liverpool FC  that the current deal lends legitimacy to China’s military occupation and the abuses that help prop it up! Call on the club to terminate its agreement with Tibet Water Resources Ltd.

Petition to Cardiff City Council

Save Cardiff Bay's Last Green Space

                                          #SaveOurBae We need to protect Cardiff Bay's Britannia and Waterfront Parks from the proposed Association of British Ports (ABP) Dolffin Quay development. This development would replace the last remaining green space in Cardiff Bay with a collection of residential and commercial buildings. The grassed area and children’s playground on the Britannia Park site are the last remaining ones of their kind easily available to local families with children in the area. Cardiff Bay is a unique and world renowned waterfront. Britannia Park has been a vital part of Cardiff Bay since 1993. It is much loved, not only by Cardiff residents, but also by visitors who come to enjoy the outside spaces, art and heritage. Most properties in Cardiff Bay are without gardens. It is vital that we protect the only remaining green space. We therefore call upon Cardiff City Council to reject any application from ABP that would remove the Britannia and Waterfront Parks. Join our campaign to #saveourbae and protect Cardiff Bay's last green space.                                           ***********************   Y mae'n rhaid inni amddiffyn parciau Britannia a Waterfront Bae Caerdydd rhag y datblygiad a gynigiwyd gan Gymdeithas Porthladdoedd Prydain (ABP). Fe fyddai'r datblygiad yma yn cael gwared o'r man gwyrdd diwethaf yn y Bae i wneud lle i gasgliad o adeiladau preswyl a masnachol. Y man gwyrdd a'r cae chwarae plant ym Mharc Britannia yw'r diwethaf o'u math yn yr ardal sydd ar gael yn hawdd i deuluoedd lleol a'u plant. Y mae Bae Caerdydd yn unigryw gyda enw byd eang. Y mae Parc Britannia wedi bod yn  rhan hanfodol o Fae Caerdydd er 1993 Y mae pawb wrth eu bodd gyda'r parc. Y mae'n cael ei fwynhau nid yn unig gan bobl sydd yn byw yng Nghaerdydd, ond hefyd gan ymwelwyr sydd yn dod i fanteisio ar y mannau agored, y celfyddyd a'r hanes yma. Y mae rhan fwyaf o'r cartrefi ym Mae Caerdydd heb ardd. Y mae'n holl bwysig i warchod yr unig fannau gwyrdd ar ol. Galwn felly ar Gyngor Prifddinas Caerdydd i wrthod unrhyw gais datblygu oddi wrth ABP a fyddai'n lleihau neu gael gwared ar Parciau Britanni a Waterfront.   Ymunwch a'n ymgyrch i warchod ein bae (#saveourbae)- y man gwyrdd agored olaf yn y bae.
