Petition to Angela Merkel (CDU), Donald J. Trump, Donald J. Trump, 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.
Petition to Channel 4, Alexandra Rose Mahon CEO
Cancel 'Train Your Baby Like A Dog'.
On August 20th Channel 4 are airing a show called 'How To Train Your Baby Like A Dog'. It shows dog trainer Jo - Rosie teaching parents how to use clicker training normally used on dogs to train their children to be compliant with treats. Please see trailer here: https://youtu.be/ZQ6omPxu4y8 Children are not dogs! There are also reinforcers used in clicker training, such as taking a child's favourite object and using it to bribe a child into doing a chore or task. If the task is not carried out it will be deemed as non compliance and a planned ignoring is undertaken by all care givers involved in response to any distress shown. Clicker training is used in the behaviourial therapy Applied Behaviourial Analysis, used on autistic children. It is shown to cause PTSD in adults that were subjected to it: https://www.emerald.com/insight/content/doi/10.1108/AIA-08-2017-0016/full/html Here is a brief overview of ABA from a dog trainer: https://theaspergian.com/2019/03/27/is-aba-really-dog-training-for-children-a-professional-dog-trainer-weighs-in/ Statement from Professional Association Of Canine Trainers: https://www.pact-dogs.com/blog_post/pact-official-statement-regarding-channel-4s-upcoming-train-baby-like-dog-programme/ The children as far as we know in this show are not autistic, however NO child should be treated like this. We here at Autistic Inclusive Meets, an autistic led organisation based in London ask CEO Alexandra Rose Mahon of Channel 4 to consider that this dehumanising to children, that it should not be given a platform and to consider cancelling the airing full stop. The children are shown no dignity or respect in clicker training behaviourism, and will be a prime target for grooming in the future as they will have been taught to comply to an adults demands, regardless of their own comfort or autonomy for reward. Please reconsider, Yours sincerely, Emma Dalmayne CEO - Autistic Inclusive Meets . Www.autisticinclusivemeets.org
Petition to Council of the European Union, European Commission, European Parliament
Call for the EU to Support Hong Kong-ers' Fight for Freedom and Human Rights
Dear President Tusk, President Junker and President Sassoli, I am writing to bring your attention to the situation in Hong Kong regarding recent protests and the societal environment in Hong Kong and hope to initiate a dialogue between Hong Kong-ers and the European Union. The Union is founded on the engagement to promote and pledged itself obligated to protect Human Rights worldwide. Its founding treaty stipulates that the Union’s action on the global arena ought to be guided by principles including the universality and indivisibility of human rights and fundamental freedoms, respect for human dignity. The Union has always been one of the major partners of Hong Kong in many aspects. The European Parliament has recently passed a motion for a resolution regarding the protest happened earlier, supporting the civil society in Hong Kong. Therefore, I would love to urge your further support for Hong Kong-ers in their fight for freedom and human rights. Hong Kong plays a vital role in the global financial and trade sector. The shutting down of the airport on 12th August have caused damaged worldwide and Europe-wide. The situation in Hong Kong is not merely affecting Hong Kong-ers, but also the world. Freedom and human rights are the foundation of Hong Kong’s prosperity and its role as an international financial centre. Moreover, the growing influence of China worldwide has been a concern for many states, and it is said that we are in the New Cold War. If that is true, then Hong Kong is the new Berlin. Hong Kong stands between the free world and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime. Rocking by our largest protest in decades, we were opposing against the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation(Amendment) Bill 2019 (Extradition Law), which many foreign states including the EU had raised concerns over the Extradition law. Now that has turned into a social movement fighting for freedom and human rights. And our outcry for freedom and human rights are on solid grounds. In 1984, UK and China signed the Sino-British Joint Declaration, an international bilateral treaty, bound by the Vienna Convention, on Hong Kong’s future after the handover scheduled in 1997. It guarantees Hong Kong-ers fundamental rights and freedoms, including freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of assembly. “One country, two systems” principle is stated in the Joint Declaration, promising Hong Kong-ers could retain our own economic and administrative system for 50 years. However, the Chinese government has been tightening its grip on Hong Kong since the handover in 1997. In 2003, the bill commonly known as Article 23 was tabled to the legislature, it defined subversion against the CCP regime as “attempts to intimidate the central government”. It would hugely threaten the city’s freedom of speech and assembly. The bill was shelved after a massive demonstration. In 2012, the HKSAR government attempted to implement a biased national education curriculum denouncing democratic values and praising the CCP as “advanced and selfless”. The proposal was postponed indefinitely after a massive protest. However, it is found that different parts of the original proposal are implemented in schools separately in later years. China has never ceased to deprived Hong Kong-ers from their fundamental rights and freedom. Numerous activists are being put behind bars for unlawful assembly and rioting. In 2014, China denied universal suffrage for Hong Kong and sparked off the massive civil disobedience movement known as the Umbrella Revolution. After 79 days of occupation, the police doused the protestors by force, including pepper spray and tear gas. Recently, 9 campaigners have been convicted of the leading roles in the movement. Hong Kong-ers’ freedom of speech and the right to be elected are also suppressed. In 2015, booksellers selling banned books, including Lam Wing-kee, disappeared. It is suspected that Lam was kidnapped by the Chinese officials in Hong Kong. One year later, an area in central Hong Kong was leased to China under a custom arrangement adopted for the high-speed railway connecting China and Hong Kong. Chinese laws could be enforced in Hong Kong. Principle of “one country, two systems” is violated. In 2016, 6 elected legislators are being disqualified by China and 2 were put into jail for entering the legislative chamber before the disqualifications. And candidates were banned from running for office in the Legislative election that year due to their political stance. In 2016, in a protest against the street-hawkers crackdown, police used batons, pepper spray and fired warning shots in the crowd to disperse the crowd. The government classified the incident as a riot on the other morning. More than 100 people are arrested, 33 are charged with riots and they are put behind bars. Edward Leung, a young activist, was put behind bars for 6 years, while another activist Lo Kin-man faced the longest imprisonment in the incident for 7 years. 3 activists fled Hong Kong, Ray Wong, and Alan Li were granted subsidiary status in Germany while Li Sin-Yi fled to Taiwan. In 2019, the government introduced the extradition law that allows suspects to be transferred to China where there is no guarantee for fair trials and is notorious for its human rights violations. On the 9th June, one million people took to the streets in protest of the bill. The police used disproportionate force to disperse the protestors. Later, two million people marched onto the streets again. However, the government merely postponed the bill but never suspended the bill. On 12th June, Hong Kong Police once again used disproportionate and illegitimate force on Hong Kong Citizens. They were not wearing visible tags, either with the names of the officials nor a number identifying them. Up till now, the government-backed police have fired 1800 shots of tear gas, 400 bean bag rounds, and rubber bullets. The police shot protestors, first-aiders, and journalists, aiming at their head. A lady was shot in the eye and lost her eyesight forever, numerous were injured. Police further hindered hurt protestors in the scene from receiving medical aid and arrest those who sought medical aid in hospitals. Such acts are undoubtedly blatant violations of human rights laws and standards. In July, protestors and innocent pedestrians were attacked by suspected triad members on the streets and in the underground. More protests and assemblies took place. Civil servants, lawyers, medical staff and other professionals have signed petitions and participated in assemblies and also joined the strike to fight for the government's response. The police have been damaging Hong Kong’s freedom of assembly by banning rallies and protest and caused more conflicts between the police and protestors. In August, police stormed enclosed underground stations, firing tear gas in an indoor area to force out protestors. They fired rubber bullets from only a 1-2 meters away from the protestors. Protestors are beaten up by batons on an escalator. A member of the Student Association of the Baptist University was arrested because of his purchase of laser pointers on the street, the police claimed that those are offensive weapons. Abuse of force by the police has become part of our daily routine. Till this point, nearly 600 Hong Kong-ers are arrested. However, the government’s and our Chief Executive responded to these incidents saying “(protestors) have no stake in the society”. In light of this, I would love to urge for your attention to the human rights violations and support for Hong Kong-ers demand for freedom and human rights. I sincerely hope that the European Union would stand with Hong Kong-ers to protect fundamental freedoms and human rights, which are the pillars of Hong Kong as an international financial center. It is hoped that a dialogue can be initiated so that the Union can be updated with the developments of Hong Kong. Yours sincerely, Glacier Chung Ching KWONG
Petition to António Guterres the Secretary-General of the United Nations
The UN must investigate the 3rd of June human rights violations in Sudan by the Military
On the 3 of June 2019, the Sudanese people's human right to peacefully protest was violated. At the sit in front of the Military headquarters in Sudan they were subject to an early morning raid by tens of heavily armed military vehicles and thousands of police and Military personnel. Live fire was used, tear gas attacks, lashings and also beatings. Reports say there is a number of unknown fatalities and many wounded. What happened must be investigated and the responsible parties brought to justice. We demand the United Nation establish an International commission of inquiry and investigate because the Sudanese people believe the Transitional Military Council is incapable of investigate itself.
Petition to European Parliament
Stop secret family court's worldwide, forced adoption and kidnapping our children
Radical changes need to be made to social service,s worldwide.. They conduct proceeding's in secret and we have no way of defending ourselves against abusive social worker practices.. Even a murderer has the right to defend themselves while parents do not.. Everyday children are being taken needlessly from loving homes, they are traumatized and become fearful.. Statistically these children never fully find security again and many are abused while in the hands of other's.. Children are far more secure in the hands of parents and family than they are in the hand's of stranger's.. Even imperfect parent's show more love, kindness and sense of identity to these children.. While in care they can be moved many times never being allowed to grow a true sense of who they are.. They are more likely to be abused in care than at home.. Help us bring our children back to the families who truly love them

Stop domestic abuse through the family courts
Last year, by order of the High Court advised by the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass), my friend’s two high school children were taken by force in the middle of the night from the home of their mother. They were dragged out of her house screaming, put into a police van and taken to live at their father’s house. They were told their reasons for not wanting to see their father weren’t good enough and that they must have a relationship with him. If this sounds shocking - the truth is that this is happening in the family courts all the time. Just a glance through the comments of this petition will give you an idea. Ever since the children’s Mum left their father, he continued to find ways to exert power and control over her. The kids didn’t want to see their Dad, but with the help of a specialist barrister, that only he could afford, the children ended up being taken in the middle of the night. Children are as much victims of the domestic abuse they see and hear. Many months on, the children write to Cafcass asking for help, describing how miserable they are, begging to be returned to the care of their Mother and demanding their ‘human rights’. They are still not being listened to.The Cafcass website says: "We put children’s needs, wishes and feelings first, making sure that children’s voices are heard at the heart of the family court setting, and that decisions are made in their best interests" But CAFCASS is doing the opposite. These youngsters asked for help. So we did research, asked questions and have received numerous letters describing more Cafcass horror stories where children are not listened to and put at risk by unsafe child contact orders. We also found that the rights of (mainly) women, who are trying to escape abusive relationships, are still not being heard and prioritised. This is despite Family Court rules issued in 2016 which say they must be. Family Court secrecy means that mistakes can go undetected. Concerned parents are often seen as being ‘difficult’ and ‘obstructive’. Then they are forbidden from, and afraid of speaking out!We must stop this happening. The decision makers in the Family Court must be properly trained to spot patterns of domestic abuse and the culture of secrecy must change to being more open.We demand that the Government ensures that in the family courts: Mandatory Training & Education already recommended by Family Court Rules and that this is independently monitored. These rules state: ‘All members of the Family Court judiciary and Cafcass professionals must undergo mandatory specialist training in the dynamics of domestic abuse, coercive and controlling behaviour, the frequency and nature of post separation abuse, the impact of domestic abuse on children, on parenting and on the mother-child relationship.’ The Rights of Children must always be upheld - no child should ever be subjected to this type of forced removal against their will and then left in distress and without a voice. The voices, wishes and feelings and the human rights of children should be paramount in the decision making of the courts regarding contact arrangements.

Stop the assessments for people with Long term conditions on the PIP.
This petition was done to support the vulnerable disabled people who have Severe Learning Disabilities, Autism, Epilepsy and Challenging behaviours and for many people also having many long term conditions that will keep deteriorating. You tell me why they should be criticised regarding their circumstances and disabilty, and then have a linked term of reference attached to there recent benefit taken away when they were awarded this, seems degrading to that person, so this is why I am fighting this government to reinstate this attached term the Indefinite claim and link it to the new benefit PIP. Please Sign and Share and also you can Promote this petition you can donate so it gets noticed further, without signatures it will not meet the targets it needs which is 100,000 signatures. Why change when they have been awarded this? Their circumstances are not going to change so why take it away? I feel this is unlawful. Thank you.
Petition to The British Council, Boris Johnson MP
AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR YOUNG ADULTS
Young single adults need affordable housing, something needs to change. Young adults like myself who are single and living off one income can not afford private renting, in my area where I work a 1 bedroom flat to rent privately is £1,050pcm which is basically my whole monthly income. Young single adults with no children are not a priority and are completely at the bottom of the barrel and have absolutely no chance of moving out into a council property (which is reasonably priced). I speak for myself and I’m sure thousands of others in saying I am happy to pay a reasonable price for rent just like anybody else/ council / housing association tenants HOWEVER I can’t even get close to having the opportunity. Money’s money, I work hard and I want to move out of my parents home, I’m 23... so why don’t young single adults like myself even get given the shot?
