Petition to Frau Manuela Schwesig

Weil alte Menschen es wert sind: Altenpflege fördern statt abschaffen!

Die Bundesregierung plant drei eigenständige Berufe zusammen zu legen. Die neue generalistische Pflegefachkraft soll für alle - vom Frühgeborenen bis zum Demenzerkrankten - gleichermaßen kompetent sein. Das kann nicht mehr als Mittelmaß für alle sein. Altenpflege wird als eigenständiger Beruf abgeschafft - das macht in einer alternden Gesellschaft keinen Sinn! Wir sind Altenpfleger/innen, die mit Überzeugung und vollem Herzen den Beruf gewählt haben und ausüben. Wir wollen auf diesem Weg das breite Bündnis für Altenpflege www.bündnis-für-Altenpflege.de unterstützen, das sich gegen eine generalistische Ausbildung formiert hat. Angesichts unserer demografischen Entwicklung braucht es keine Schmalspurausbildung sondern überzeugte Altenpfleger/innen! Für die Kampagne Petra Berger und Beate Swoboda Rheine und Berlin Dear friends and colleagues abroad, we would be very happy if you would strengthen our petition. Germany has since more than four decades a highly qualified and specialized professional training for geriatric care. We, who launch this petition, have our degrees in geriatric care and we are working since many years in this field. We are convinced, that all our elderly people deserve a kind of care that puts themselves, their biographies, their ways of life in the center of care and not their diseases and impairs. Our profession became richer in knowledge and methods in all the years, but also in the challenges we face: Everybody knows that demographic change is on the way. The older we get, the more likely we will need help of some kind. Geriatric care is an essential profession for all our future. It´s hard to believe:  IN GERMANY GERIATRIC CARE IS NOW AN ENDANGERED SPECIES! Our government has the idea to shrink three qualified professions into one: pediatric nursing, nursing and geriatric care. Presently we can be happy, because we know that if we are in need, we have specialists for all ages and concerns. It´s simple maths and obvious that with the plan to unite the three professions all of them will lose their profile and, more essential, time for the deep and comprehensive training they need.  We think it would be a dreadful mistake to terminate a specialized geriatric training now, as we face an ageing society. Since all the years we work in this field we´ve met so many wonderful colleagues who wanted just one thing: working with elderly people. For them and everybody who works wholeheartedly in geriatric care please sign: WE NEED GERIATRIC CARE!

Petition to Ullrich Sierau, Friedhelm Sohn

No cigarettes for children! Stop the German city of Dortmund's tobacco promotion in Indonesia!

 *** Terjemahan Bahasa Indonesia *** Deutsche Übersetzung *** The city of Dortmund promotes tobacco trade in Indonesia, where cigarettes can be legitimately sold to children. The city owns the Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH. This company organizes the tobacco trade fair Inter-tabac ASIA, which for the first time is held in Indonesia on February 27th/28th. The city of Dortmund directly promotes the marketing of tobacco in a country where children are not protected from the dangers of smoking. Therefore we, Yosef Rabindanata Nugraha (22) from Bogor (Indonesia) and Max Vollmer (27) from Dortmund (Germany), want the city of Dortmund to cancel the tobacco trade fair Inter-tabac ASIA. They got me, Yosef from Indonesia, when I was 12 years old. I was lucky, I finally managed to quit smoking when I was 19. But some of my friends didn't. I don't want my country to be a destination for tobacco industry. I, Max from Dortmund, am appalled by the irresponsible involvement of my hometown in tobacco business. Up to now the mayor and the city council are not willing to change the situation. They abdicate from their responsibility to instruct the Westhallenhallen to stop the tobacco trade fair in Indonesia immediately. It is so hard to fight global tobacco industry. Now here is an effective option. If many people sign the petition, the city cannot make investments against the will of their citizens, We appeal to Ullrich Sierau, Mayor of the city of Dortmund and Friedhelm Sohn, chairman of the Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH's supervisory board: 1) Stop the Inter-tabac ASIA in 2014. 2) Make sure that Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH does not organize tobacco trade fairs in any country of the Global South in the future. 3) Dissociate from the tobacco industry in a public statement.   Please support us in making the city of Dortmund revise its actions. Sign our petition to the mayor of Dortmund Ullrich Sierau and the chairman of the supervisory board of the Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH, Friedhelm Sohn, now. Please pass the link on to your friends and acquaintances: www.change.org/dortmundkills.There is not much time left. Thank you, Yosef and Max. Website: www.dortmundkills.de Facebook: www.facebook.de/dortmundkillsDonate to cover Yosef's travelling costs to Dortmund, so that he himself can submit the petition ! www.dortmundkills.de/en/spenden   Max and Yosef get support for their petition from the campaign Dortmund Kills. Dortmund Kills is organized by Forum Rauchfrei ("Forum smokefree"), Deutscher Jugendschutzverband (“German association for youth protection”), Indonesia Bebas Rokok ("Smokefree Indonesia"), Unfairtobacco.org and Stiftung rauchfrei leben ("Foundation smokefree living").  -------------------------------- Background information Tobacco industry targets growing markets in low- and middle-income countries, because the number of smokers in high-income countries is decreasing. If the industry succeeds in its efforts, the consequences for the population of these countries will be devastating and the number of deaths is going to rise dramatically. Indonesia is considered as "tobacco friendly" and as a fast growing market for the tobacco industry. It is one of the few countries in the world where tobacco industry can do almost everything they want. There are virtually no enforceable regulations to protect the population from cigarette companies' efforts to hook them on tobacco. It is not forbidden to sell cigarettes to children. Massive advertising campaigns have led to an increase in smoking prevalence amongst boys aged 13 to 15 to more than 40 percent. Tobacco consumption is also a poverty issue. In Indonesia more than 40% of the 247 million inhabitants live on less than 1.50 euro a day (45 euro per month). According to WHO, smokers in Indonesia spend on average 28 euro per month on cigarettes. Tobacco consumption has a direct impact on the food situation. Promoting tobacco trade fuels poverty!
