Pétition pour la sauvegarde des activités nautiques sur Maldormir (Commune de Marseillan)
Monsieur le maire Yves Michel et les membres du conseil municipale de Marseillan. Nous, les pratiquants des activités nautiques, nous vous présentons une pétition relative à l’arrêté du 27 mars 2017. Nous cherchons à vous interpeler sur le bien-fondé de l’activité kite à Marseillan et plus particulièrement sur le site de Maldormir. En signant la présente pétition : J'atteste faire le souhait que soient préservées sur le territoire de Marseillan ces activités nautiques non polluantes, notamment les activités tournées vers l'exploitation de l'énergie éolienne que sont le windsurf, le kitesurf et la voile. J'atteste faire le souhait que soit levée l'interdiction de la pratique des activités nautiques au droit du chemin de Beaurivage par abrogation de l'arrêté municipal du 27 mars 2017. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Marseillan, par sa situation géographique privilégiée entre mer et étang, a vu s'installer une activité nautique importante. Nombreux sont ceux qui en bénéficient, que ce soit par passion, par profession, directement et surtout indirectement puisque nombreuses sont les retombées économiques associées : fréquentations de petits commerces du port, location dans les résidences, dans les campings, etc… C'est ainsi que le kitesurf s’est développé à Marseillan, grâce à sa situation topographique et son vent particulièrement généreux. Si le kitesurf est un sport non polluant, la sécurité de ses pratiquants est fortement impactée par l’adéquation entre le spot et l’orientation du vent. La sécurité des pratiquants n’est ainsi pas assurée par tramontane en pleine mer: vent de terre . Maldormir et l’étang de Thau répondent parfaitement à cette forte contrainte de sécurité par Tramontane. C’est dans ce cadre unique de ses nombreux étangs sur le plan régional que s’est développée la pratique du Kitesurf. Ce site d’exception permet l’apprentissage de ce sport et sa pratique dans les meilleures conditions de sécurité pour tous les pratiquants de tous niveaux. Si le kitesurf est un sport non polluant, la sécurité de ses pratiquants est fortement impactée par l’adéquation entre le spot et l’orientation du vent. La sécurité des pratiquants n’est ainsi pas assurée par tramontane en pleine mer: vent de terre.

Petition to US State Department
Ban Downloadable/Plastic Guns and Bullets
On July 31st, a United States Federal Judge blocked Cody Wilson and his organization, Defense Distributed from releasing their 3D printed gun blueprints. However, the judge did provide Wilson with other options, such as mailing USB drives with the information on them. In addition, Defense Distributed illegally released the blueprints to the public, days before they were scheduled to be granted permission. 3D printed guns are dangerous because they can be made on demand and can bypass security checkpoints undetected. Also, they have no serial number making the guns untraceable. Kids, felons, terrorists, abusers and mentally ill people could all get their hands on an unlimited amount of guns, without a single background check. A new startup has also appeared on multiple news stations because of their frightening and absurd goal. They want to give blueprints for 3D printable bullet proof vest penetrating bullets to the public at no cost. Not only is this dangerous for citizens of the United States but this organization going under the name, Atlas Arms is also anti government and encourages the bullets to be used to murder police officers. Safe Nation demands that a bill is passed, stating that all gun and bullet blueprints are illegal to be sold or given for free in the United States. If you agree, take a minute to sign the petition because every signature counts! Safe Nation is a student led organization fighting to end gun violence. It was founded in July, 2018 and has been fighting for gun violence ever since. Text @GUNFREE to 810-10 to subscribe to text message updates! REGISTER TO VOTE! Text @FUTURE to 644-33!

Declare the NRA a supporter of domestic terrorism
The National Rifle Association (NRA) is more a political lobby than sportsmen's organization. It has spent over $3 million per year since 2013 to keep gun policies in an antiquated state despite the fact that more Americans have died from gun violence (over 1.5 million) than from all the wars since the Revolution, and now want some form of gun control. A sensible reading of the 2nd Amendment would restrict purchase of equipment designed for mass murder: large clips, military grade semi-and fully automatic rifles, and ammunition for the same, which could be as easily tracked as over-the-counter medication. Yet none of it will be regulated while the NRA effectively controls the GOP. While not a branch of government, the NRA has enormous impact on American life by coercing politicians and voters with money and intimidation, and restricting our safety and public health. Thousands have already signed another petition calling the NRA a terrorist organization, and the governor of Connecticut agrees. Former NRA CEO and multi-millionaire Wayne LaPierre has said that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." As at Stoneman Douglas High, where three or four armed deputies waited outside during the shooting, this is rarely true and unfortunately doesn't help the shooter's victims. In Las Vegas, where over 500 people were shot with automatic gunfire, the shooter was inaccessible and shot himself before police arrived. In the wake of these horrific attacks the NRA mobilizes to enrich gun and ammo manufacturers while putting Americans at increasing risk of being shot. NRA's newly appointed CEO, Oliver North, infamously sold weapons to Iran to finance a covert Central American war under Reagan. This shows the cynicism and moral rot central to the organization; there is no reason to think they will ever act responsibly. Domestic terrorism is on the rise in the wake of Trump's election. White nationalist groups were eager to claim the shooter in Parkland as one of their own. The NRA facilitates both the arming and the militant ideology of these groups, supporting domestic terrorism. While right-wing politicians divert or attention with imagined threats from immigrants, the NRA does real harm to democracy, spreading anti-government hysteria and the idea of armed insurrection. The FBI should stop hesitating and brand the NRA for what it does rather than what it claims. This and other petitions aim to tarnish its reputation enough to interrupt its pernicious political influence. The victims of Santa Fe High (TX), Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fl), Sutherland Springs (11/5/17), Las Vegas (10/2/17), the 2016 Orlando shooting, Sandy Hook Elementary, Tree of Life Synagogue, and on and on and miserably on deserve no less. Please sign the MoveOn.org petition, another petition seeking to designate the NRA a terrorist organization under the Patriot Act, and support the Violence Policy Center.

Increase security in schools to prevent mass-shootings
I’m a high school student and I was terrified by footage of the Parkland school shooting I saw online. It was the seventh school shooting in our country since the beginning of the year. Insufficient school security is one reason why this keeps happening – that’s why I started a petition to change that. This time, a former student named Nikolas Cruz opened fire on his old classmates, murdering seventeen and injuring many others – and they never saw it coming. The shooting continued for an extended period of time before any police officer showed up to stop him. How could this have been stopped? I believe we need more federal funding directed to schools for security measures like recruiting more officers to be placed in our schools. We can prevent dangerous people from gaining access to our schools. We can add things like bulletproof windows and metal detectors. Basic safety measures make sense for schools everywhere. You can add your name to this petition to speak out and demand action. We’ve grown accustomed to a cycle where we mourn for a few weeks and post a social media status on how sad and tragic these events are. But what will we actually DO as Americans to stop this? We need to demand real change from our leaders so that these victims don’t become another hashtag and statistic – only to be forgotten until the next mass shooting event. Please sign this petition calling on our Congress to provide funds to support better security at our schools and protect students, like me.
