Petition to Federal Communications Commission, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
Save Net Neutrality
The ability to organize grassroots movements, whether locally or across the globe, is made possible by an open Internet. Since its creation, the Internet has become the world’s megaphone for free speech, protected by the principles of Net Neutrality, which require internet service providers (ISPs) to give everyone equal access to everything you use the internet for -- email, watching videos, listening to music, or signing petitions on Change.org. Without Net Neutrality, ISPs can choose what you see online, favoring some sources or blocking others. For example, if someone launched a petition on Change.org against a company like Verizon, Net Neutrality prevents Verizon from blocking or slowing their customers’ access to our site. In December of 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 3-2 to repeal net neutrality rules -- giving big cable companies room to charge extra fees, block and censor users. By removing ISPs from Title II of the Communications Act, a rule that means ISPs are subjected to tougher regulations that prevent them blocking sites, creating paid “fast” lanes, and throttling internet speeds. This decision will have global implications for the way the world shares and receives information from journalists, newsrooms, and NGO’s. However, following the FCC’s vote, Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.) announced a Congressional Review Act resolution that if passed, would stop net neutrality repeal. That resolution now has the support of 50 senate members, which means just one more vote is needed for it to pass the Senate. Net Neutrality also prevents ISPs from creating paid “fast lanes” that would give faster delivery of content to companies who can afford to pay more. An organization or platform like Change.org that couldn’t afford those fees, couldn’t communicate with their supporters. In the United States, there is strong bipartisan support for Net Neutrality. A recent poll conducted by Mozilla found that Republicans, Democrats and Independents overwhelmingly support these rules. At Change.org, we believe that people everywhere should have the tools they need to make their voices heard. We’re a social good company powered by technology that empowers anyone anywhere to take action on the issues they care about. A closed off Internet means fewer ways for millions of people to make the change they want to see. Without an internet equally accessible to everyone regardless of income or geography, we can’t continue that mission. Add your name to let Congress and the FCC know that you support an open internet.

The Release of Filiberto Saucedo
On Saturday, December 1, 2018 my father Filiberto Saucedo was traveling from California to Arizona for work when he was pulled over by border patrol. He is now in process of removal (deportation). Before being detained he was able to send me one last text that read “Mija me para migración”. As a daughter of an illegal immigrant I believe that those are the most frightening words you can hear/see.I feel as if my world has come crumbling down because of fear and sadness. Fear, because my father has not visited nor lived in his home country for over 25 years. He doesn’t know what life is like in Mexico anymore. His home is here in Los Angeles with his family and friends. And I am saddened because of the absence of my father. He will miss out on so many thing due to his immigration status.Things that we take for granted like being able to see him regularly, birthdays and celebrations, and seeing his grand children grow up. He is a very hardworking family man that was just trying to earn an honest living. My father can brighten up your day with just his smile, one of his jokes, or even his funny dance moves. Anyone that knows my dad can vouch that he is a wonderful human being and full of life!! That is why I asked that you find it in your heart to sign this petition so that my dad can come back home where he belongs and is needed. . Please pass this along to get as many signatures as we can so that my dad can come home! Thank you, Stephanie Saucedo A proud daughter of an illegal immigrant
Petition to Statsminister Erna Solberg og Stortinget
STEM FOR ET FORBUD MOT PELSDYROPPDRETT!
Din viktigste signatur for dyrene! Vi gir oss ALDRI før burene er tomme! Norge kan snart gå inn i historien som ett av flere land som forbyr organisert mishandling av pelsdyr! I 2018 vedtok regjeringen (V, H og FrP) i sin plattform at det skal innføres forbud mot pelsdyroppdrett innen 2025. Flertall i opposisjonen - AP, SV, MDG og Rødt - støttet dette vedtaket. Lovforbudet skal komme i løpet av 2018 - og nå er det viktig at det ikke blir ytterligere trenering for dyrene. 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 aldri gir oss før hvert bur er tomt! NOAH, som landets største organisasjon for dyrs rettigheter, startet i 2014 en underskriftkampanje mot pelsdyroppdrett - og 143 000 signaturer ble levert til Landbruksministeren i 2016 før regjeringen publiserte sin stortingsmelding om pelsdyr. Dette er din viktigste signatur for pelsdyrene, som viser at det er en stor og klar motstand mot norsk pelsdyroppdrett! I løpet av de 29 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 ca. 9000 oppmøtte i 30 byer landet rundt i 2017, og er den største markeringen for pelsdyr i hele Europa. I 2018 holdes fakkeltoget 27. oktober - meld deg 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!

Marilyn Monroe deserves to have her death certificate changed!
I am a private investigator conducting an investigation into the true facts surrounding the death of Marilyn Monroe. My objective is to petition the correction of Marilyn's death certificate and requesting that the Attorney General opened a criminal investigation surrounding her death. There was really never an investigation to start with. I have always believed Marilyn Monroe was murdered along with most of the people in this world. If you look at all of the stories, books, testimonies, and even evidence then there is no reason that Marilyn Monroe’s death certificate should not be changed from probable suicide to murder. If not that, then at least accidental death. I feel that there should be a correction on Marilyn's death certificate and I am requesting that the Attorney General open the criminal investigation surrounding her death. There are two people alive who have never asked to give a statement for an investigation but were present when Marilyn Monroe took her last breath, and that is LAPD Sgt. Marvin D. Iannone who was later promoted to Chief of the Beverly Hills Police Department. And, Pat Newcomb. After the funeral, Pat Newcomb ﬂew to the Kennedy compound at Hyannisport, Massachusetts. After that, Newcomb left the country and remained away for six months. During this period from August 1962 to February 1963, she visited Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Denmark, and Switzerland. When she returned to this country she was put on the"government payroll as an information specialist (motion pictures) for the U.S. Information Agency, 1776 Penn. Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. Don’t you think this is a little interesting? I do! Time is running out since Ms. Pat Newcomb is 88 years old and Mr. Iannone is 83 years old. Please help by making things right. It’s time for Marilyn Monroe to have her death cleared once and for all. And, for those who took part in her death to be criminally responsible for aiding and abetting in the death of Marilyn Monroe. Marvin Iannone dismissed the other officers from the scene the day Marilyn Monroe was found dead. Iannone was seen by several witnesses talking to Peter Lawford and assisting Lawford while cleaning up the cottage where the actual death took place. Iannone had been known to take care of Bobby Kennedy whenever Bobby came into town. How can we allow a man who pledged to protect and serve get away with actually taking part in a possible murder and/or more? Time is running out since Ms. Pat Newcomb is 87 years old and Mr. Iannone is 83 years old. Please help by making things right. It’s time for Marilyn Monroe to have her death cleared once and for all. And, for those who took part in her death to be criminally responsible for aiding and abetting in the death of Marilyn Monroe. Please help by making things right. It’s time for Marilyn Monroe to have her death cleared once and for all. And, for those who took part in her death to be criminally responsible for aiding and abetting in the death of Marilyn Monroe. It’s a disgrace that so many people have made millions of dollars out of the death of Marilyn. The one thing that has never changed in over 53 years is the people involved, the time frame of events and the real manner of death.

Stop Homophobic Attacks on LGBTQI Refugees in UN Camp.
ProblemLGBTIQ Refugees who fled homophobic conditions and anti-gay laws are under attack from both homophobic refugees and from the UNHCR Refugee Authorities who called on the police to beat up the refugees who held a silent protest against the violent and harassing conditions in the campgrounds. SolutionUNHCR Authorities must guarantee the safety and protection of LGBTIQ refugees registered under their care. UNHCR must also listen to the horrific conditions and allow protest if these conditions are not met, and not to resort to police tactics and violence to silence the group. All injured refugees, some severely wounded, have to be given immediate proper medical attention by UNHCR Authorities - they were only given bandages for deep gashes and cuts on the head. Personal storyHere is the story from my friend, Moses Mbazira, who was attacked today for staging a silent protest at the camp: HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS, ADVOCATES, HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.MBAZIRA, MOSES TO LGBTIQ REFUGEE, THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF REGUGEE FLAG KAKUMA, IS CURRENTLY IN A VERY CRITICAL CONDITION THAT NEEDS URGENT ATTENTION. HE HAS BEEN BEATEN BY THE POLICE IN KENYA INSIDE UNHCR KENYA COMPOUND KAKUMA SUB OFFICE IN PRESENCE OF THE PROTECTION TEAM MEMBERS WHO CALLED THE POLICE TO PUNISH HIM AND HIS FELLOW COMMUNITY MEMBERS FOR HAVING A PEACEFUL MATCH TO PRESENT THEIR PETITION TO THE HEAD OF UNHCR KENYA AFTER BEING DENIED PERMISSION BY THE CAMP AUTHORITIES. HE HAS BEEN NOT GIVEN ANY MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AND DUMPED INSIDE THE COMMUNITY, AND MAINLY ACCUSED OF BEING ADVOCATING FOR THE RIGHTS OF HIS FELLOW VOICELESS COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND EXPOSING THE INHUMAN HOMOPHOBIC ACTS OF SOME OF THE UNHCR PROTECTION OFFICERS.HIS PHONE AND SOME OTHER BELONGINGS AND THOSE OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS LIKE BACK BAGS HAVE BEEN RETAINED BY THE POLICE OFFICERS.
Petition to Instagram
Demand Instagram remove violent anti-Semitic posts
Instagram is no longer just for sharing cute photos of babies, pets, and avocado toast - it’s now widely used by neo-Nazis to spread messages of hate and conspiracy. After the worst attack to the Jewish community on U.S. soil, over 11,000 anti-Semitic and hate-fueled posts could be found on Instagram. Many of these posts included hashtags linking the Jewish people to 9/11, others included odes to Adolf Hitler. All of them shared a similar message of hate intended to incite violence on a group of people. Tell Instagram to beef up their hate speech rules and remove violent content. Instagram needs to do more to remove hate speech from their platform. Eleven people were killed at the Tree of Life Synagogue by a white supremacist. A quick search on Instagram for images related to this horrific event showed thousands of anti-Semitic images and videos. Many of them have been shared across Instagram as well as other platforms like Twitter and Facebook. When it comes to hate speech, Instagram has avoided a lot of the issues Twitter and Facebook have had over the years. Social media has given extremists a soap box to spread their messages far and wide. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube are launching programs to deal with hate speech. Tell Instagram to remove posts that embolden violent white supremacy and Nazism. If social media companies like Instagram turn a blind eye to hate speech, they’ll be giving more online havens for extremists to promote violence and spread their message. Demand Instagram remove violent content from their website.
