Petition to Twitter India
Ban Twitter of KRK!
I am initiating this petition as an attempt to uphold the freedom of speech online. Kamaal Rashid Khan is a stupid personality in the Indian Twitter scene. Not only is he known to be a disgusting film critic but also a person who is known to voice his stupid opinions with partiality or prejudice. This attitude of his has gained him a digital base of over 5 people. Being one of the least honest and least influential spokespersons and so called film critics online today, his Twitter account should be BANNED, as he already fulfils all the parameters required(ask other actors or check his shameful tweets). I therefore appeal to Twitter India to Ban Kamaal Rashid Khan’s account. I request everyone to sign this petition, so that there will be no future prejudice against others.
Petition to Mr. Asqar Jahangir, Head of Iran’s State Prison Organization,
Apply Domestic Law: Provide Prisoners with Adequate Medical Care
My name is Atena Daemi. By the time you read this petition I will probably be in prison. I have been sentenced to 7 years for my peaceful human rights activism –a fact that has been widely criticized by human rights organizations, including Amnesty International. Imprisonment is difficult for anyone but, it is especially challenging when you are suffering from an illness and denied medical care. Denying prisoners medical care is a form of torture. Today, some of Iran’s bravest and most dedicated activists are imprisoned and suffering because the authorities refuse to provide them with medical care. This is a clear violation of domestic and international law. Additionally, the conditions of prisoners who are detained on non-political and criminal charges are even worst. Please join me in asking the head of Iran’s State Prison Organization to provide prisoners with proper medical care. Many of Iran’s prisoners are deprived of adequate nutrition and proper medical care in an express violation of domestic and International law. State Prison Organization Regulations requires Iran’s prison officials to offer prisoners with nutritious meals and speedy and proper medical care; including transferring detainees to a hospital outside the prison, or releasing them on medical leave. However, Iranian prison authorities routinely and systematically deny prisoners proper medical care. Many prisoners are unnecessarily suffering from manageable and curable conditions. We must pressure Iranian authorities and demand they fulfill their legal obligation. Narges Mohammadi, Mahvash Shahriari and Zeinab Jalalian are 3 Iranian citizens suffering from grave health issues in prison. Their condition is worsening day by day. Narges, a prominent human rights advocate, has been sentenced to 16 years in connection to her activism. She suffers from a neurological disorder that causes seizures and temporary partial paralysis. According to reports, her condition has deteriorated due to her imprisonment. Mahvash Shahriari, a Baha’i citizen, has been behind bars for 9 years for practicing her faith and defending the rights of other Baha’is. Doctors have recommended that Mrs. Shahirari be release on medical grounds. Authorities, however, continue to disregard Mrs. Shahiari’ medical condition and jeopardize her life by keeping her behind bars. Zeinab Jalalian, an Iranian Kurdish activist, is at risk of losing her eyesight because Iranian authorities deny her specialized care. According to her attorney, some of Jalalian’s medical requests have been rejected outright while others have been accepted on condition that she makes videotaped “confessions.” One thing i’m sure of: as our numbers grow and our voice gets louder, Iranian authorities are much more likely to listen to our demand, as they care greatly about how they are perceived internationally. Please join me in demanding that Iranian authorities provide prisoners with proper medical care. Atena Daemi
Petition to CUNY, City University Of New York, Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio
Stop Linda Sarsour from Speaking at CUNY Commencement
On April 19, 2017, City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Healthy Policy announced Linda Sarsour as the keynote speaker of its commencement ceremony on May 30th at The Apollo Theater. Sarsour is an advocate for Sharia law, has excluded Zionists from the modern feminist movement, is a supporter of BDS, and has described rock throwing against Israelis as courageous. Further, Sarsour has shared the stage with Rasmea Yousef Odeh, who was convicted by the Israeli Court for her murder of two students, Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe, in a Jerusalem supermarket bombing in 1969. Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) has already spoken out against this appointment, claiming that Sarsour's support of Sharia Law makes her unsuitable to speak at a school funded by taxpayers, CBS New York reported on Friday."She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing," Hikind said. Sign the petition below to support peace rather than hate; stop Linda Sarsour from spreading hate at CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy commencement.

Petition to Statsminister Erna Solberg og Stortinget
STEM FOR ET FORBUD MOT PELSDYROPPDRETT!
Din viktigste signatur for dyrene! Nå er muligheten her: Norge kan snart gå inn i historien som ett av flere land som forbyr organisert mishandling av pelsdyr! Stortinget må i nær fremtid stemme over endelig avvikling av pelsdyrnæringen, og regjeringen skal samtidig vurdere det samme. Det er nå viktigere enn noen gang at politikerne får føle det sterke engasjementet som finnes - at vi er svært mange som bryr oss og som følger med! NOAH, som landets største organisasjon for dyrs rettigheter, starter nå en underskriftkampanje mot pelsdyroppdrett - og signaturene skal leveres til Stortinget og til statsminister Erna Solberg. Signer oppfordringen til Statsministeren og Stortinget om et endelig forbud mot pelsdyroppdrett i Norge! Dette er din viktigste signatur for pelsdyrene! Et representantforslag om forbud mot pelsdyroppdrett og import av pels fra slik produksjon, ble levert til Stortinget fra Miljøpartiet De Grønne i november 2014. Samtidig ba samarbeids- og regjeringspartiene i budsjettforliket, regjeringen om å "vurdere forbud mot norsk pelsdyroppdrett". Høsten 2016 har regjeringen lovet å levere sin "vurdering" til Stortinget - det er første gang en norsk regjering vurderer forbud mot pelsdyroppdrett. Politikerne har gitt mange løfter for pelsdyrene som de ikke har holdt. Vi må vise at vi ikke aksepterer dette. Vi må vise at vi ALDRI gir oss før pelsdyroppdrett er forbudt. I løpet av de 27 årene NOAH har kjempet for pelsdyrene, har et stabilt flertall i befolkningen, et samlet mote-Norge, faglige instanser som blant annet Veterinærforeningen, og flere politiske partier stilt seg på pelsdyrenes side. NOAHs Fakkeltog mot pels samlet 8000 oppmøtte i 24 byer landet rundt i 2015, og er den største markeringen for pelsdyr i hele Europa. I 2016 holdes markeringen 12. november, og snart 30 byer har meldt seg på. 800 000 minker og rever lever i trange nettingbur hvert år, uten å få utløp for sin naturlige adferd, og kun for å dø for å bli til et unødvendig pelsprodukt. La politikerne få klar beskjed med din signatur: Ikke flere tomme ord - vi krever tomme bur!

Petition to OLL Board Members
Become a voting member of Oneida Little League
The youth in Oneida is the future of our community, which is why commitment to improvement is necessary. Oneida Little League (OLL) has excluded parents, volunteers, and sponsors from the ability to elect a board of directors. This process is exclusionary by design, intentionally suppressing the parents within our league from the ability to voice their concerns. It has allowed the board to selectively enforce rules that are convenient, while blatantly ignoring others. By Little League International rule, the current board has the ability to extend it's voting membership to include all parents, sponsors, and volunteers. The league constitution states, “Regular members: Any person actively interested in furthering the objectives of the association may become a regular member". Only regular members have a vote for the board of directors. Currently OLL only considers board members or team managers to be regular members. They offer no valid reason to intentionally exclude parents, assistant coaches, volunteers, and sponsors from the ability to be a regular member with voting privileges. By signing this petition you believe: 1. Player parents, volunteers, assistant coaches and sponsors should have the right to vote for league representatives. 2. The corrupt and bias activities within OLL should come to an end. These activities include the selective enforcement of LLI Rules and Regulations. 3. OLL should follow all Little League International rules, without seeking waiver, including not have more than 50% of the board coach or manage. This creates the check and balance system to ensure fairness and equality. The goal of this petition is strictly to enact positive change. It's not meant to add chaos or disrupt the league, but rather to peacefully demonstrate there are a significant number of concerned parents who would like to have a meaningful impact on the decision making process, and in turn the future of OLL. As a parent, you deserve that. Not all members of the OLL board of directors are involved for self-serving reasons, but the handful that are most vocal are. Holding the OLL board of directors accountable to make decisions with the players best interest should be the most important priority. That can't be done without the proper leadership. The ability to vote for the board of directors in 2017, is a crucial step to democratically elect the leadership for a cornerstone organization in our community. It allows board members to be removed when they fight on the field, alter All-Star rosters, consume alcohol infront of players on OLL grounds, or create an environment where winning takes precident over developing players. Without achieving a larger population of voting members, the lack of accountability will continue, and so will the downward spiral of the leagues enrollment and credibility. OLL can be a better place. It can survey the parents for feedback, lower registration fees, make improvements to the facilities and act with integrity by opening up its board meetings. Together, we can make that happen, Oneida Youth Sports Improvement
Petition to United States Congress
Don’t take away funding to teach school kids about the Holocaust
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, hate crimes have spiked across our country since last November. Now, more than ever, our public school students need access to programming that encourages tolerance and understanding for all people. When students take a field trip to Holocaust museums and Holocaust resource centers to meet Holocaust survivors, a powerful connection is made and never forgotten. There is no better way to fight anti-Semitism and racism than to learn the lessons of the past -- and see first-hand -- where racism and religious intolerance ultimately leads. This kind of public school programming is now under attack. Through House Bill 610, Congress and the Trump Administration wants to allow the Department of Education to turn essential federal funds into so-called “block grants” that can be used for whatever a particular state wants to do. If we are serious about educating our young people, the future citizens of our nation, about tolerance and acceptance of all Americans -- we need to prioritize and protect funding for programs like these. Our children and country need these educational experiences more than ever -- Jews and other minorities are under threat in our country -- with attacks, vandalism, or phoned bomb threats reported almost on a daily basis. If you believe tolerance and understanding is stronger than hate, sign and share this petition today. Tell Congress and Secretary DeVos to protect the Holocaust education funding that our public school students is needed now, more than ever.
Petition to Jeff Schielke, Laura Newman
Allow Greg Brown to keep his therapy pig in Batavia, IL
Greg Brown is an incredibly nice man who has lived in Batavia for a very long time. Greg suffers from depression, so he adopted a therapy pig (Pigly Brown). His pig is loved by Batavians, and so is Greg. The City of Batavia, specifically Laura Newman, sent Greg a letter that told him that he had to remove his pig from within city limits. Laura cited an ordinance that prohibits livestock, and Laura (the Batavia City Administrator), stated that "swine are specifically prohibited from being fewer than 200 feet from a business, residence, street or alley". Mental illness is an incredibly serious issue, and Pigly deserves to call Batavia his home. The City of Batavia needs to allow Greg to keep his beloved therapy animal. Let's support Greg and Pigly, along with all others that suffer from depression. Send Laura Newman an email to tell her how important Pigly is to our community: email@example.com Let the city know how much this means to you. Send an email to the city council and mayor of Batavia at: firstname.lastname@example.org Pigly even has his own facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Pigly-Brown-1848025382142705/
Petition to Eric Garcetti
Install AC Units in all housing projects in the United States
Residents of Los Angeles Housing projects are experiencing extreme heat during the summer months with no air condition available for comfort. The families and children are forced to live in unbearable conditions with temperatures above 100 degrees that causes many elderly and youth to become ill. Families living in these facilities are economically challenged and have few resources to purchase and install air conditioning units. Please push for the government funded projects to make it mandatory to install air condition units in each housing project where temperatures are extremely hot.
