Petition to Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders retract your endorsement of Biden

Bernie, we disagree with your decision to endorse Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee of 2020. Biden does not represent the Progressive policies, that you do. Bernie, police brutality has been a problem in this country. As we see global protests against the murder of George Floyd, it also reminds us how Biden has shown himself to be a racist in the past. Biden helped write the 1994 crime bill, which led to mass incarceration.  Black lives do not matter to Biden. Biden is the white moderate that Dr. MLK Jr. warned us, about, Bernie. We stand firmly, united against police brutality & police murder of innocent black citizens.  We are proud that you publicly denounce police murder, & have raised more than $1.5 million, for racial justice organizations.  You have shown for decades, Bernie, that Black lives matter to you! In addition, a credible sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden has been made by an ex staffer of his, named Tara Reade.  We believe Tara. Bernie Sanders, we are calling on you to retract your endorsement of Biden, & announce that you are back in this race.  None of us will vote for Biden, we refuse.  Some useful information about why we dislike Joe Biden: https://theintercept.com/2019/09/13/joe-biden-democratic-debate-slavery/?fbclid=IwAR2Hxi1xOy1Jrol7H_lmm4RE_NpCOqj0dJRnfTHdJ8XM4ElTFFTVQXrPinQ https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/500767-bush-administration-alums-form-pro-biden-super-pac?fbclid=IwAR3QpqOpxgTmaZ8PEjdu3UFRUC4agQlb8R-WgdhpqU4cFPhMtmh5T-rkaWw   https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/6/20/18677998/joe-biden-1994-crime-bill-law-mass-incarceration   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZUJisbXHk4 https://www.jacobinmag.com/2019/09/health-care-joe-biden-medicare-for-all https://theintercept.com/2019/10/25/joe-biden-super-pac/ https://readsludge.com/2019/07/18/bernie-sanders-challenges-joe-biden-to-stop-taking-money-from-pharma-and-health-insurance-executives/ https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51648166 https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/28/politics/joe-biden-south-africa-arrest-cnntv/index.html https://theintercept.com/2019/04/27/anita-hill-joe-biden-non-apology/ https://jacobinmag.com/2020/02/joe-biden-history-republicans-tax-cuts-barack-obama-yesterdays-man https://theweek.com/speedreads/819291/joe-biden-got-200000-speech-that-reportedly-helped-elect-republican-house-member

Petition to Mark Zuckerberg

FACEBOOK IS A THREAT TO THE PUBLICS MENTAL WELL-BEING WHEN HATE CONTENT ISNT TAKEN DOWN

There are people mocking George Floyd’s death. There are white supremacists attacking people verbally. There are people harassing those who are standing up and fighting for their rights, the harassment has gotten out of control. There  are people causing mental harm on purpose. There are white supremacists suggesting that they will do harm, which is a direct threat.  There are people actively sabotaging people’s  mental health, because they want equality. This is a threat to the public, to our mental health, to our rights. These are threats, that they get away with because they think they can hide behind a screen.     There are people using their accounts specifically to cause mental damages to our black community, as well as openly threatening those in the Black community and those supporting this Civil Rights Movement.  Facebook is a place for friends and family.  Facebook is not a place for hate speech or discrimination.  Not only is there the obvious issue from the hatred, not only does it pose as a threat the mental health of the community, it also affects the minds of young kids reading those messages. Reality is that social media has an increased impact on our daily lives, our mental health, it also affects kids younger and younger.  If you can report the hate content, it’s up to the Facebook team to take it down.  When it comes to morals, this shouldn’t have to be something we have to demand for, that’s why we need to keep momentum. Share the petition, why is this important for you? Together we CAN and WILL be heard.

Replace the racist Chef Boyardee picture with Mothman

  Chef Boyardee represents a racist stereotype of Italian immigrants in the United States,This stereotype is damaging to the image and portrayal of our fellow Italians who reside in our United States.Due to the recent events occurring in our states we must unite in order to end these harmful and bigotry that plague our community.Not only did Chef Boyardee represent a harmful stereotype but was also a close confidant of the warmonger Woodrow Wilson.    Chef Boyardee supervised the catering for president Woodrow Wilson’s wedding,he also had close ties with the international affairs involving foreign U.S troops invading domestic territories.    Chef Hector Boyardee , played an important role in the country’s war efforts.With American troops engaged in battle overseas, the comforts of home were much appreciated. Chef Boyardee meals were an essential part of soldiers’ rations during their war.      Beginning in 1942, the Chef Boyardee plant in Milton, Pennsylvania began operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week to keep up with production demands. When they weren’t busy with production, Chef Boyardee employees could be seen marching through the streets of Milton during nationalist parades that inspired and promoted support for the genocidal war.     President Woodrow Wilson handed down to us through history is of a democratic idealist whose rhetoric outlined the rationale for American involvement in foreign wars in the 20th Century.  From Wilson's presidency onward, the United States would enter world affairs with the intention of making the world "safe for democracy", ensuring freedom of the seas, lowering prohibitive tariff walls, and fostering the right of all peoples to self-determination.  Wilson's rhetoric was later echoed by other presidents, most notably Franklin D. Roosevelt, who argued repeatedly that Americans needed to enter the Second World War to protect freedoms outlined by Wilson three decades earlier. Fast-forward a century and the rise of neo-conservatism to power in the United States at the dawn of the 21st Century was accompanied by similar rhetoric about the American obligation to spread democracy around the world and open the doors of global trade.  The similarities between Wilsonian and neo-conservative foreign policy are fundamental, not coincidental.  Indeed, Wilsonian values have been cited repeatedly as the reasons why the U.S. launched its invasion of IRAQ in 2003.    This all being said,Mothman has long been a beacon of hope and representation for the communities that are harmed by racist bigoted stereotypes such as the KKK and NRA.On the other hand Mothman supports the actions of BLM and LGBTQ+ movements.We started this petition after a dear friend of ours single handily created a movement to replace racist confederate statues with our friend the Mothman.  Please support this petition if you are against bigotry and systemic racism.

Justice In Policing Act of 2020

While there are already tons of petitions regarding Police Brutality, this one is specifically to show support towards The Justice In Policing Act of 2020. An act that is a solid first step towards bringing about Police Reform and accountability. This act is currently being held from passing by members of the Senate who believe it is too radical, even though the act does not propose defunding the police. Judge for yourself and if you agree, sign and share showing your support.  To list a few issues The Justice In Policing Act tackles:  This act will prohibit racial, religious, and discriminatory profiling by police officers as well as mandating training on racial, religious, & discriminatory profiling for all law enforcement! It will also ban chokeholds, and no-knock warrants at the federal level as well as limiting the transfer of military-grade equipment to state and local law enforcement.  It will also reform the qualified immunity police officers have to make it easier for civilians to recover damages when the police violate their constitutional rights.  Establishes public safety innovation grants for community-based organizations to create local commissions and task forces to help communities to re-imagine and develop concrete, just, and equitable public safety approaches.  Among other things. -------------------------- This is meant to show Congress that we are aware and in support of this legislation. We as a people regardless of race/ethnicity want to see concrete change and not just empty promises. A big thanks to Congressional Black Caucus Chair Karen Bass, Senators Corey Booker, and Kamala Harris for introducing this Act.  This is for George Floyd, for Breonna Taylor, for Eric Garner, Rodney King, and all those who have lost their lives to Police Brutality. Their deaths will not be in vain.  Below Is a Link to the press release on the judiciary website if you want to read it through the entire legislation yourself. Press Release
