Petition to International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Avenue de la Paix 19,1202 Genève Switzerland
Free the Armenian prisoners of war.
Free the Armenian prisoners of war! To: International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Avenue de la Paix 19,1202 Genève Switzerland As part of international law. I appeal to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for steps to be taken as soon as possible to exchange and release Armenian prisoners of war. A prisoner of war is a detained person, as defined in Articles 4 and 5 of the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War anqujtej 12 August 1949, as having engaged in Someone who is known to be resilient to be immune to the effects of an occasional conflict. Pursuant to Article 4 of the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War, a prisoner of war may be one of the following categories: 1) members of the armed forces of a Party to the conflict, as well as members of the militia and voluntary units forming part of those armed forces; 2) members of other militias and other voluntary units, including members of organized resistance movements belonging to one of the Parties to the conflict and operating outside or even within their own territory, provided that these militias or volunteer units, including organized resistance movements correspond to the following conditions: a) are headed by a person responsible for their subordinates; b) they wear a permanent and recognizable distinctive sign; c) carry arms openly; d) observe in their actions the laws and customs of war; 3) members of the regular armed forces who claim to be under a government or authority not recognized by the Detaining Power; 4) persons accompanying the armed forces, but not belonging directly to them, such as, for example, civilian members of military aircraft crews, war correspondents, suppliers, members of labor divisions or services appointed to look after the military, provided that they have been authorized by the armed forces they are accompanied, the latter being obliged to issue them with an identity card according to the attached model; 5) members of the crews of merchant ships, including captains, pilots and apprentices, and members of the crews of civil aircraft of the Parties to the conflict, unless they are entitled to more favorable treatment under other provisions of international law; 6) the population of the unoccupied territory, which, when the enemy approaches, takes up arms spontaneously in order to resist the invasion, and has not had time to organize into regular armed forces, if it openly carries arms and obeys the laws and customs of war. Article 13 of the Convention provides that prisoners of war must at all times be treated humanely. Prisoners of War Must be under medical care (Articles 30 et seq.). I would like to call on the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to take immediate action on the rights of prisoners of war. The materials published on the Internet by the citizens of Azerbaijan prove that - the rights of the Armenian prisoners are not respected. I also appeal to the Azerbaijani government, through the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), to immediately release prisoners of war and hand over the bodies of the fallen. I am ready to come to Karabakh and Artsakh for the exchange of prisoners as part of the red cross. That the Geneva Convention and international law are respected. I am asking for an intervention in this matter. Free the Armenian prisoners of war! Tomasz Lech Buczek
Petition to Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen, King of Cambodia Norodom Sihamoni
Drop All Charges Against Cambodian-American Human Rights Advocate Theary Seng
Cambodian-American human rights lawyer, democracy advocate, and author Theary Seng has been summoned to appear in the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Thursday November 26 at 8:30 am for charges of "incitement to create social disorder" and "conspiracy to commit treason" in 2019. She has been summoned along with roughly 60 others, mainly officials and members of the banned opposition party Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), including party leader Sam Rainsy and his Vice President Mu Sochua. If convicted, she could receive up to 12 years in Cambodia's notorious prisons. It is clear that these charges are a politically motivated response to Theary's outspoken criticism of Prime Minister Hun Sen and her advocacy on behalf of the members of CNRP, to which she has no official affiliation. Contrary to what the charges suggest, Theary's career has been entirely non-violent, and in fact, focused on educating other Cambodians across the country on how to engage in politics and enact change through non-violent means. Despite her cooperation with Cambodian authorities, they have failed to release any information to her about her alleged charges, undermining her ability to prepare for trial. This trial appears to be the culmination of Hun Sen's increasing authoritarianism and crackdown on human rights, with the clear intention of silencing the few remaining voices of dissent. That must not be allowed to happen. For that reason, we are asking you to please join us in calling on the Cambodian government to uphold its human rights obligations by taking the following actions: 1) Drop the charges against Theary Seng; 2) Drop all politically motivated charges against the other defendants; and 3) Release all current political prisoners. The Hun Sen regime must know that the world is watching this trial closely. Thank you for your support in sending that message. You can access the urgent appeal that has been submitted to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Cambodia and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression for a more detailed explanation of Theary's case here. If you would like to donate to Theary's legal fund, you can do so here.
Petition to AK Airlines, Bank Of America
Tell AK Airlines NO! To vaccine requirements for flying.
Support individuals right to travel within the United States without mandated vaccines. Many healthy and immuno-compromised people have a higher risk of negative health impacts from certain vaccines than from the illnesses the vaccines are intended to prevent. In addition, many people have a religious or personal reason for choosing other methods of preventative health care rather than vaccines. It is not the job of any airline to refuse service on the basis of vaccination. This petition is to ask AK Airlines to refuse the suggestion or pressure to mandate any vaccine for United States citizens traveling within the United States. If such a requirement is adopted by AK Airlines, the following individuals will immediately cancel their AK Airlines credit cards and use alternative methods of transportation whenever possible until such a requirement is lifted.
Petition to YouTube
Youtube, stop discriminating against Orthodox Christians and African media companies
Last week, Youtube terminated Mereja TV’s channel that has 217,000 subscribers after the channel started to show a television program hosted by a prominent Ethiopian Orthodox Christian scholar Zemedkun Bekele. Youtube arbitrarily terminated the channel at the behest of the Ethiopian government and its supporters without warning or without specifying any policy violation. About a month earlier, Youtube had terminated Mr. Zemedkun’s own channel. Again, without any warning or explanation. Mereja TV’s Youtube Channel belongs to a television station that serves Ethiopia and eastern African region. It has tens of millions of viewers. For Youtube to arbitrarily terminate a channel that belongs to a national tv station with tens of millions of viewers is unthinkable if the media company were American or European. When recently Ethiopian Orthodox Christians and Muslim ethnic Amharas came under attack following incitements against them on Youtube and Facebook, Youtube took no action to remove such videos. But when a prominent Orthodox Church scholar preaches peace and urges the Ethiopian government to stop the persecution of Christians in Ethiopia, it is apparently not acceptable to Youtube. Youtube holds Africans, and Orthodox Christians, in such contempt that it doesn’t even bother to point out the reason for terminating their channels from its platform. Youtube finds this video that is full of profanity and racial epithets is acceptable and promotes to its users. The video has now over 600 million views: https://bit.ly/3pPX2PU The videos by Zemedkun Bekele are wholesome, educational. No profanity. No nudity. No glorification of violence. They do not violate any of Youtube’s community guidelines. That is why Youtube canno give any reason for terminating his channel and Mereja TV’s channel. His videos promote unity among Ethiopia's various ethnic religious groups. They teach young people to take personal responsibility for their actions. Here is an example: https://bit.ly/3f7AbKF Compare the two videos above. Which one violates Youtube’s terms? It is obvious that for Youtube, a video that violates its community guidelines is fine as long as it generates millions of dollars. Videos that are in full compliance of Youtube’s guidelines, however, are not safe from termination because of personal biases of certain employees in Youtube, or complaints by a tyrannical government and its supporters. If Youtube executives feel any sense of a good corporate citizenship, they would work with legitimate community-based media such as Mereja TV to clean up the filth on their platform. Youtube is full of pornographic and gruesome videos in Amharic (Ethiopia’s official language) and other languages that are harmful to children. Youtube is accountable to the law. Discrimination based on religion, or national origin is prohibited under the United States laws. There is also the court of public opinion. We do not have the financial wherewithal to hire powerful lawyers to fight Youtube in court. But we can hit Youtube where it hurts the most, i.e., create enough awareness about its contempt towards African content creators and Orthodox Christians that advertisers will take notice. If Youtube ignores our public plea to reinstate our channels, the next step is to contact its advertisers and demand that they stop funding Youtube’s blatant discrimination. Please join us and make our voice heard. Mereja TV
Petition to PX folks and members
Evict Last from Mod Position
Hey all, We want to address and take Last accountable for his incorrect use of Mod power. They are abusive and bias towards the wrong people in the conflict. He should not have rights to say anything to the PX members, nor does he even play Identity V. Additionally, if some people have problems with him, it is best to get rid of the entitled Mod. Overall, there is a reoccurring pattern of him being problematic; and if we do not condone actions now, it would jeopardize the server's folks.
Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate
Streamline The EEOC To Expedite Justice For All
Approximately 72,675 charges of discrimination were filed in 2019. Tragically, every year thousands of Americans never receive justice due to the EEOC's case load, massive time wasting, and long convoluted process. Too, when ethical violations are committed by EEOC employees the Commission is reluctant to "police" itself in my experience. The EEOC's process and departmental counterparts (Commission, Intake, Mediation, Enforcement, and Legal Team) can/should be streamlined for timeliness to resolve charges through the Mediation Department and or issuing a "General/Generic Right to Sue Letter" within 30 days if the employer refuses to enter mediation. The Enforcement Unit is redundant/obsolete in it's current state due to the abundance of attorneys available both public defenders and private practice lawyers. If the U.S. Congress acts now millions of Americans will have their chance to pursue justice in court a lot sooner than previous years. I waited more 180 days for justice but my case was ignored because the EEOC investigator's relative attended the very institution that I filed a complaint against. Delayed justice is injustice where statute of limitations are concerned.
Petition to Mr. Stephen Santilli, Marissa Russo, Staci DiMattia
Get Kush Patel Suspended
Kush needs to learn a lesson. He told a freshman student to kill herself over a joke. She deals with severe anxiety. Suicide is not something to joke about. He needs to be suspended or even expelled. He also threatened to have his “gang” pull up on her. If he doesn’t get punished he will not learn and he will end up doing it again.
