Petition to Angela Merkel (CDU), Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Theresa May, Donald Trump
Führende der Welt: Handeln Sie jetzt und retten Sie unsere Leben in Aleppo!
Ich bin einer der allerletzten Ärzte, die sich noch um die 300.000 verbliebenen Menschen im östlichen Aleppo kümmern. Jeden Tag werden hier Gräueltaten verübt. Das syrische Regime und russische Kampfjets greifen systematisch zivile Ziele und Krankenhäuser überall in der Stadt an. Ich habe sowohl dem ehemaligen US-Präsident Obama und Kanzlerin Merkel einen offenen Brief geschrieben, um ihnen mitzuteilen, was in Aleppo passiert. Ich bat sie darum, ihren Einfluss zu nutzen, um uns zu helfen. Aber die Antwort ist die gleiche wie die letzten fünf Jahre: Merkel schweigt und aus dem Weißen Haus kommt nur eine müde Verurteilung der Vorfälle. Weder Obama noch Merkel zeigten ernsthafte Bemühungen, um die verbrecherischen Angriffe gegen Zivilisten und Krankenhäuser zu unterbinden. Darum habe ich diese Petition gestartet habe. Die Führende der Welt hören nicht auf meine Stimme allein. Aber wenn Sie mich unterstützen? Machen Sie mit und wir sind so laut, dass sie uns nicht mehr ignorieren können! Sechs Jahre lang mussten wir mitansehen, wie zahllose Patienten, Freunde und Kollegen grausam und qualvoll ums Leben kamen. Sechs Jahre lang hat die Weltgemeinschaft zugesehen und nur davon gesprochen, wie „komplex“ die Lage in Syrien ist. Sechs Jahre lang hat die Weltgemeinschaft so gut wie nichts unternommen, um uns zu helfen. Im letzten Monat gab es 42 Angriffe auf medizinische Einrichtungen in Syrien, 15 davon waren Krankenhäuser, in denen meine Kollegen und ich arbeiten. Mit dieser Häufigkeit an Angriffen könnte unsere medizinische Versorgung in Aleppo bereits in einem Monat komplett zerstört werden. Dann würde man 300.000 Menschen ohne medizinische Versorgung sterben lassen. Was meinen Kollegen und mir die größten Kopfschmerzen bereitet, ist zu entscheiden, wer lebt und wer stirbt. Kleine Kinder kommen manchmal so schwer verletzt in die Notaufnahme, dass wir sie abweisen müssen, um denen zu helfen, die höhere Überlebenschancen haben. Oder wir müssen sie abweisen, weil wir einfach nicht die nötige Ausstattung haben, um ihnen zu helfen. Vor einer Woche starben vier neugeborene Babys, sie erstickten, weil eine Explosion die Sauerstoffzufuhr unterbrochen hatte. Sie starben, bevor sie überhaupt leben konnten. Trotz des alltäglichen Horrors haben wir beschlossen, hier zu bleiben. Wir haben uns derer verschrieben, die in Not sind. Es ist unsere Pflicht, hier zu bleiben und zu helfen. Alles, was wir jetzt verlangen, ist, dass es uns die Führenden der Welt gleich tun und ihre Pflicht wahrnehmen. Wir brauchen weder ihre Tränen, noch ihre Sympathie oder Gebete, wir brauchen ihre Taten. Sie müssen beweisen, dass sie Freunde der syrischen Bevölkerung sind. Bitte unterstützen Sie unseren Aufruf. Fordern Sie gemeinsam mit uns die Führende der Welt auf, die Menschen in Aleppo zu retten.

Stop Genocide of Rohingya Muslims. Put Sanctions on Myanmar.
It is the world’s most silent genocide. So silent, in fact, that even in the unlikely event you have heard about it, it’s more than likely you know only its foggiest details. Under the UN Geneva Convention, the definition of genocide describes both a mental and physical element: “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such,” and includes killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. In every sense of the definition, the government of Myanmar is carrying out genocide against its 1.3 million Rohingya Muslim population – one that is being ignored, in the most part, by the international community, despite acknowledgement by the United Nations that mass killings, disappearances, torture, gang rapes, brutal beatings, property dispossession, and forced deportations are occurring in increasing frequency and ferocity. The UN’s 2017 report into Myanmar’s savage “crackdown” on the country’s northern Rakhine state described the violence as likely “crimes against humanity,” and that “the gravity and scale of these allegations begs the robust reaction of the international community,” but the international community, particularly Western leaders and media continues to ignore Myanmar’s systematic extermination of Rohingya Muslims. “The devastating cruelty to which these Rohingya children have been subjected is unbearable – what kind of hatred could make a man stab a baby crying out for his mother's milk. And for the mother to witness this murder while she is being gang-raped by the very security forces who should be protecting her,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. The cruelty inflicted upon these people by the state obligated to protect their security is on a par with the level of depraved barbarism carried out by the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but whereas the terrorist group’s psychopathic violence attracts global headlines, the cruelty mete out by Myanmar’s security forces goes largely unknown. Cruelty that includes the slaughter of babies and young children with knives; deliberate destruction of food supplies, and the burning and looting of entire villages. Of 101 Rohingya Muslim women interviewed by the UN, more than half said they had been raped or sexually assaulted. Sattar Islam Nirob is a 28-year-old Rohingya Muslim refugee in one of the three refugee camps set up inside the Bangladesh border. He and his family have taken refuge in Kutapalong refugee camps, which now holds 13,766 Rohingya Muslim refugees alongside another more than 65,000 held in a neighboring “make shift camp,” Nirob told. Nirob said that fresh assaults carried out by Myanmar’s security forces are pushing a rapidly increasing number of Rohingya Muslims towards the Bangladeshi border. Yesterday he estimated there to be more than 3000 waiting, more like pleading, for refugee status, while he estimated a further 1,200 had been arrested by Bangladeshi border patrol officers for trying to cross without a permit. Bangladeshi security forces forcibly sent back 90 Rohingya Muslims trying to flee Myanmar, and then began firing mortars and machine guns at them, according to Al Jazeera. But even when the “fortunate” few of the likely hundreds of thousands of internally displaced Rohingya Muslims make it safely into neighboring Bangladesh, the refugee camps that await them can only be described as horrific. He described conditions inside Kutapalong camp; breaking down in tears as he recounted witnessing babies starving and dehydrating to death due to a lack of water and emergency milk supplies. Others have described pathways “paved with sewage,” and a “claustrophobic crush of mud huts and tents packed so tightly together that they looked like they were built on top of each other.” This has been Nirob’s home for the past two years. Too afraid to return to Myanmar in the knowledge he’d face certain death, torture, or imprisonment. When asked Nirob if he felt his situation was hopeless, he said he had not abandoned hope in the international community, saying, “If the US government and United Nations can work together to pressure the Myanmar government, it will greatly improve the situation for all Rohingya refugees.” Despite Nirob’s continued optimism in the face of such indescribable adversary, efforts to pressure Myanmar’s de facto leader, San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, have fallen short. Not only has she blocked the UN from investigating Myanmar’s human rights violations, but also she maligned Rohingya Muslims as “terrorists” and/or supporters of terrorism. Clearly, the international community must do more to halt Myanmar’s systematic extermination and expulsion of Rohingya Muslims. To do nothing is to provide the Muslim world of yet another clear example of the West’s refusal to intervene when Muslim lives are endangered. It is high time to intervene and save the innocent lives. The world leaders must step in and pressurize the government of Myanmar to stop the genocide and protect the rights and lives of innocent people.

Free Nazanin Ratcliffe
My wife Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 37 year old charity worker, was on holiday visiting her family in Iran. She was at the airport returning to the UK on the 3rd April when she was detained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. She has been transferred to an unknown location in Kerman Province, 1,000 kilometres south of Tehran, and is being held in solitary confinement. Gabriella Ratcliffe our 22 month old daughter (who has British citizenship only) has had her British passport confiscated, and is stranded in Iran with her grandparents. Nazanin has not been allowed to access a lawyer or her daughter. She has not been able to call out of the country to speak to me, her British husband, and the Red Cross have not been able to make contact. There have been no charges. Nazanin has informed her family that she has been required to sign a confession under duress, its content unknown. Her family have been informed that the investigation relates to an issue of ‘national security’. It is hard to understand how a young mother and her small child on holiday could be considered an issue of national security. She has been to Iran to visit her family regularly since making Britain her home. Nazanin currently works as a project manager for the Thomson-Reuters Foundation; which delivers charitable projects around the world. It does not work in Iran. Nazanin has now been in solitary confinement for over 30 days. Please help bring my wife and daughter home by signing my petition calling on our Prime Minister Theresa May to use her power and intervene.

Free the 6 British Veterans from Indian jail #CHENNAI6
5 Years rigorous imprisonment in a Indian Jail is the Sentence for 6 of our Brave British Veterans In 2013 we started a petition after six British ex-soldiers were wrongly arrested and imprisoned without charge for straying into Indian waters without permission & carrying illegal weapons without licence by Indian authorities while working to protect merchant seaman in some of the most dangerous seas in the world. After spending 9 months in prison and a charge finally being filed against them 3 months in, they were released on bail, and began to fight to prove their innocence, which they done successfully and all charges were dropped in July 2014 leaving them free to return home. Unfortunately this was not the case. The Indian authorities held their passports and documents stopping them from returning home to their loved ones and denying their freedom. The Indian Q Branch police lodged an appeal to have their charges re-instated when a full trial was ordered by the Supreme Court. After a long and mentally torturing wait the trial began in September 2015 in the Magistrates court of the port where they were first arrested. On the 11th of January 2016 our hearts sank, our brothers, husbands, Sons, and fathers had been given a Guilty verdict and sentence to 5 years rigorous imprisonment. Not one of us or the people involved could have saw this verdict coming. All the evidence to prove their innocence was submitted in court, the trial had gone in their favour from day one, and most importantly they were innocent! The devastation and anguish this has caused us, the families is huge. It has left us crushed and with little hope. We know have no communication with the men and We don’t know who or where to turn to. This is why we are asking you to sign our petition, to Free our men and end this miscarriage of justice. We understand fully that one country cannot intervene in another’s judicial process, But when innocent men are being prosecuted for a crime they have not committed, then they should have a obligation to protect the human rights and freedom of these men and have them released and brought home. These men devoted their lives protecting others. They fought for the British government now the British government must fight for them. https://www.justgiving.com/freesgo6 Text FSGO66 £1 to 70070 if you wish to donate to our fund

Stop Doncaster's 'law against everything' Protect buskers. Don't criminalise the homeless
Under highly controversial new powers sought by Doncaster Council and described by as a way of 'improving' the town centre it could soon become a criminal offence to busk, sleep rough with or without a tent, be annoying in the opinion of a council officer and even to stand around or touch parking equipment. Doncaster's proposal to introduce a wide-ranging Public Space Protection Order would create a litany of nebulous and petty new criminal offences that overwhelmingly target the most vulnerable and marginalised members of the community. Under these proposals 15 year old musical prodigy Alfie Sheard, whose viral video taken when busking in Doncaster was seen by millions and led him to an appearance on the Ellen show in LA, would have been committing a criminal offence punishable by a fine of up to £1000 for 'Requesting money, donations or goods, including through placing of hats, clothing or containers' The new powers would also give police and council officials the power to BAN people from the town centre whose behaviour they believed to be likely to cause nuisance or annoyance, a test so subjective and wide-ranging it could affect nearly everybody. Whilst the council claim that the new powers are designed to help vulnerable people engage with services, the likely effect of the order would be to impose punitive fines and criminal records upon highly vulnerable people with a wide range of complex social needs. The police and the council already have a wide range of existing powers that can be used to target genuinely antisocial behaviour without bringing in new powers that are so open to misuse and misinterpretation. The Keep Streets Live Campaign is a not for profit organisation which advocates for public spaces which are open to informal offerings of art and music and other community uses, and opposes the criminalisation of homelessness. We have campaigned against and obtained changes to PSPOs that would have criminalised the vulnerable in Chester and Oxford and worked with local authorities across the UK to advocate for policies that support a vibrant and inclusive street culture. We are asking Doncaster Council to rethink these proposals, which, if implemented, could lead to a damaging erosion of everyday freedoms in the public spaces of the town with a disproportionate effect upon the most vulnerable. Please take a moment to complete the public consultation and share your concerns with Doncaster Council.

Compensate people displaced from homes & livelihood by JDA on Gopalpura Byepass Jaipur
700 families have been made to abandon their livelihood, and homes due to the forceful disruption caused by JDA (Jaipur Development Authority) by bringing down shops and houses of people that have been there for almost 30/40 years. The land was bought by people from a society who carved out plots on privately owned agriculture land which subsequently became part of 'right of way' of the road Gopalpura Bypass as per Jaipur masterplan. But JDA displaced all landowners including their homes and shops that was their only sources of income and livelihood without giving them any compensation. People have lost their houses, and income source and have no money for food or basic necessities or a place to live for an indefinite time. Please sign this petition so the government can take action and compensate the people who have lost everything.

Let my son be with his family
Where to begin. First and foremost Birmingham Children's Services have themselves stated my son has NEVER come to ANY harm in the care of his mother/myself. My son was placed on a child protection register at birth due to me having convictions for violence 4 years previous, he was kept on child protection aged 3 months due to the fact he was "a very advanced baby" and this "may have led his mother to expect to much of him which might cause significant emotional harm". From July 2014-September 2014 my son , his mother and myself lived a happy peaceful life the days were spent loving,nurturing and enjoying our cheery,happy perfect baby ,however we made the grave error of reporting the fact social worker NADINE REDSHAW was turning up clearly intoxicated and had pictures on her Facebook of her friends babies drinking cans of carling, after that Children's Services embarked upon a smear campaign with the aim of stealing our son for adoption. We were branded "bizarre and paranoid" for refusing to strip our son naked in front of a room full of 10/12 strangers, his mother was labelled as "having a learning difficulty she struggled with" - she has genius level IQ (Children's services declined her offer to take an IQ test), we were branded "tremendously defiant" for refusing to sign our son over to my abusive mother , his mother simply asking for the law to be adhered to meant she had "personality difficulties" and quiet unbelievably our next door neighbours were asked to sign a statement "telling a little white lie" - the "little white lie" being that my son's mother had gone out and left our son in the house unsupervised. Back in December 2014 my son was illegally and viciously seperated from his mother by Birmingham Children's Services and my own mother who has a history of abusing children. 2 days before Christmas his mother went to collect him only to have my own mother refuse to hand him over whilst screaming PPO (police protection order) at my son's mother so his mother rung the police to retrieve our son only for the social worker SYEDA TAHERAH AHMED to lie to the police and claim my mother had custody. The reason Social Services gave for so brazenly breaking the law was "the child may be harmed" due to the fact that his mother and myself had had a verbal disagreement when our son wasnt in our care. His mother wanted to take our son to her fathers home in a different city without me. She kept trying to get our son back for the same thing to keep happening until we were taken to court. My mother made up a pack of lies to try and keep our son for herself. Social Services advocated for her relentlessly and the courts put our son in the care of this woman despite the fact at the time she was under police investigation for serious child abuse allegations perpetrated against her own children (me). Thankfully an independent social worker highlighted what a danger this woman was and my son was removed. Me and his mother PASSED a parenting assessment, we proved all allegations against us to be lies and his mother offered to take our son upon him being returned to her care to live at her fathers home away from myself (the "problem"). However Children's services decided to press for adoption due to facts we are still unsure of. At the Final Hearing the social worker was proven to have lied repeatedly about his mother and so had the guardian ELAINE BENNETT. After a 5 day hearing and a 2 week wait we were told our son would be placed for adoption due to the fact his mother had "drawn a malicious picture" of the social worker and because his mother had asked the social worker SYEDA TAHERAH AHMED and manager RUTH EVELYN HILL to apologise for the fact she had been told she could not care for him as a vunerable single parent. Barbara Carter of Barbara Carter Solicitors was the judge behind this scandalous decision she made findings on things his mother was not even questioned about,falsely claimed my sons mother accepted threshold and felt it appropriate to describe him as 'a very attractive baby to adopters' (one of the reasons the order was given according to Barbara Carter). Legal Aid solicitors CARTWRIGHT KING and BLAIR ALLISON colluded with BCS to remove our son for 'potential risk of emotional harm'. My son has until March to be rescued from the clutches of strangers, strangers who follow a completely different religion to him, strangers who are ripping a child from a loving mother to help fill a void in there own lives. My son is not your baby to have, He has a family who love and want him, he is the centre of the whole family and without him it is pointless. His mother says her home feels like someone has died without him in it. He doesn't deserve to be punished for my actions, his mother doesn't deserve to be punished because of my actions and he definitely doesn't need ripping from his family until he is 18 for things his mother "may or may not do" based on MY past. His mother due to Birmingham Family Courts decision to refuse to process her appeals for some unknown reason now has to wait to oppose the adoption order. Enough signatures will get my son's voice heard and just maybe if his voice is heard loud enough he might just might be returned to where he belongs and the courts might stop ignoring applications put before them and see justice done. If the family courts weren't secret he would have NEVER been removed. I quote Paul Pennington-Wilson (independent social worker) : "The parents present as loving parents who's lives revolve around their son" and finally i quote judge Barbara Carter "the mother is clearly a very bright,intelligent,engaging and fiesty young woman with much to offer those around her including her son."

Bring my son Stephen home & care for him in our community #bringstephenhome
My son Stephen is 19 years old. I love him to bits but right now I am desperately worried for him. He has autism and finds it hard to communicate. For over a year now he has been living in a unit at St Andrew’s Hospital, Northampton, which is 80 miles from our home in London. He has learning difficulties but he is being kept under the mental health act at a psychiatric unit, with patients much older and with a range of different conditions. He has the sweetest smile but since he has been there I haven’t seen it once. It's not the right place for him - even his consultant agrees he should not be on the mental health register and should be moved somewhere more suitable. We have to travel miles each weekend to see him and sometimes we only see him for a few minutes, sometimes we travel all the way to see him, only to be told that we are not allowed a visit. And other times he has been put on so many drugs he just falls asleep. It's is heartbreaking to have to leave Stephen there. He is covered in bruises and has gashes all over his head from where he has hit himself from being anxious. Right now the local authority is reviewing where to place Stephen. They want to move him to another hospital in Colchester but that won't solve anything. We want Stephen to have a better quality of life; to be able to spend time outdoors, to be around his family more often. Ideally we want Stephen to live with us as a family with the support of carers. He should also be taken off the the mental health register, so he has more freedom for how he lives his life. Other families who have loved ones with autism have successfully fought to have them live in homes with specialist carers near loved ones. And the Government made promises that people with autism and other learning difficulties should be cared for in their communities with the help of their families but this promise is being broken for Stephen. Stephen is being let down by the institutions that are meant to be caring for him - locked up in a hospital and lost to a system that wants to tick boxes instead of care for my son. Stephen deserves to be allowed to live a life in safe place with carers who understand his needs and surrounded by people that love him. Please sign my petition and help my family but most of all help my son.
