Petition to United Nations, World Bank, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, South Sudan President Salva Kiir
Freedom for Peter Biar Ajak
Peter Biar Ajak was arrested in South Sudan on July 28. Peter is a youth advocate for peace and a friend and inspiration to many who know him around the world. He is currently being held without charge at the notorious South Sudanese prison known as the Blue House. His friends at universities, human rights institutions, media organisations and others around the world are calling for his release. Peter’s arrest comes amid a worrying trend in arbitrary detentions due to a crackdown on freedom of expression by the South Sudanese government. Amnesty International reports numerous recent arrests without charges. This goes against South Sudan’s constitution which states no one can be held without charge for more than 24 hours. Peter was one of ‘the Lost Boys of South Sudan’. Displaced during the war when he was young, he lived in refugee camps before being taken to the United States by humanitarian charities. Once in the US he learnt English and studied hard, securing a place at La Salle University, then completed a masters at Harvard before studying for a PhD at Cambridge University in the UK. His inspirational story was recognised when he become an Atlantic Council Millennium Fellow and Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellow. In June, Peter was awarded the Crans Montana Forum’s New Leader for Tomorrow Award by H. E. Moussa Traoré, former President of Mali. Peter has always kept his focus on South Sudan and his hope for a peaceful future for his country. He has worked in think tanks, his national government and institutions working for development and peace. He has dedicated himself to creating opportunities for dialogue among South Sudanese youth, running wrestling tournaments across the country to bring young people together and to celebrate South Sudan's unique culture. He founded the South Sudan Young Leaders Forum (SSYLF) bringing together young leaders, both men and women, from across across ethnicities and politics to encourage youth throughout the countryside to embrace peaceful dialogue. Since Peter’s arrest, there has been amazing support from friends he has made around the world. His detention serves to highlight the systematic abuse and arbitrary detention of innocent people in South Sudan who do not have the same platforms, connections and international support as Peter. Peter has a wife and two young children. We are asking for him to be released and allowed home to his family.
Petition to Donald Trump, President of the United States
President Trump, Please Help Christian Daniels Come Home!
Dear Mr. President: I am writing you to request that the government intercedes in and facilitates the repatriation of U.S. citizen Christian Daniel’s remains, bringing them back into the United States from Haiti. Christian was an incredible individual and the bedrock of the Haitian-American community here in North Austin. Although he was born in Haiti, he became an exemplary U.S. citizen and always adhered to the spirit of this country. He was generous with his time and resources; hardworking, loyal and dedicated to our nation. He was the type of man who was always on-call to help his neighbors, often showing up to their homes while still in his work uniform so that he could help out before commuting back to his own residence by the day’s end. He made home repairs, counseled troubled youth and showed up to every important event to lend a hand when needed. All of this he did without asking for anything in return, and he never spoke ill of others or acted sanctimonious about his own good deeds. His everyday actions are what I believe sits truest to your ultimate goal for our nation: to “Make America Great Again.” On August 13, 2018, Christian was murdered by a group of criminals while attempting to visit his family in Haiti. He had only just a short time ago been installing blinds on my windows. Now I look through those same windows thinking about a memory which not long ago was a living man. Indeed, all of us are shaken and grieving from our loss, none more so than Christian’s family here in Texas. As a community we are attempting to navigate the difficult and heartbreaking process of securing passage for Christian’s remains to be buried in Texas. Despite our best efforts, our progress has been impeded by severe obstacles arising from the repatriation process. To begin, although the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs assists the families of U.S. citizens who have died abroad, they do not provide any funding for repatriation and do not coordinate with foreign officials on behalf of the deceased’s family. This leaves the family to contact the appropriate foreign offices for guidance through many multi-layered, red-tape regulations dictating how a citizen’s body may be shipped back into the U.S.. Frequently, this involves certifying the embalming of the deceased and making sure they are given an appropriate means for transport. Cremation can make some of this process easier and certainly cheaper, but in Haiti cremation is simply out of the question. The Haitian bureaucracy is also very complicated and not always as well regulated as one would like. These obstacles provide an already devastated family with much more stress and pain in their attempts to secure Christian’s burial in the United States. Mr. President, although you are still early into defining your political legacy I do know that you care a great deal about your family. The loyalty and camaraderie you all share tells me that, whatever your final vision for America may be, you understand the need for family ties to remain strong and at the center of what makes this country great. Surely you can then sympathise with a man who cared about family more than anything else, whose death was brought about by the need to see his family in Haiti, and whose American family wishes desperately to remain close to all they have left of him. I have faith that, despite what the media may say, you would see a man of his qualities as a blessing to our country and someone who is no less of an exemplary American even in death. He deserves to be laid to rest here in the United States, because he truly gave all of himself to this country. Please use whatever means are at your disposal to ensure that Christian Daniel makes it back home to his family. Few people have ever put “America First” as much as he did. Most respectfully, Vanessa Bissereth

Fix Water Quality issues from Lake Okeechobee discharges
The citizens of Lee, Charlotte, and Collier counties, as well as Port St. Lucie, desperately need the Lake Okeechobee water releases to be stopped, cleaned up before discharge, or directed south through the Everglades. Our wildlife is dying, our tourists are canceling trips, and our quality of life is being threatened here every year. The Sugar industry needs to give up the land they were going to sell the State of Florida in 2014 before sliding out of the deal. We need that land to move the water discharges south. We're in BIG trouble here and it's getting worse every single year. Please help us.

Free Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen
FREE U.S. CITIZEN MICHAEL PHUONG NGUYEN, HELD BY VIETNAMESE GOVT WITHOUT CAUSE Xin xem ở phía dưới cho tiếng Việt We wish to bring your attention to the plight of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen. On June 27, 2018, Michael traveled to Vietnam to visit friends and family. However, he did not return on his scheduled flight. Through various sources, he is presumed to be currently being detained and imprisoned by the Vietnamese government. As of July 27th, Michael has already been missing for 21 days. The government there refuses to acknowledge his detainment, or share any information about his condition. As of today, we have not been able to confirm his whereabouts or what he was charged with. For any government to incarcerate anyone without any probable cause is a blatant violation of human rights and of international law, especially if the detained is a citizen of another country. Michael, 54, is a U.S. Citizen, father of 4 daughters, an independent business man and an active member of his community and church. His family is very concern for his safety. We, as U.S. citizens, hereby demand an immediate and unconditional release of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen. Failure to do so only serves to further discredit the Vietnamese government in the eyes of the international community, and equally important, in the eyes Vietnamese people. We respectfully asked for your assistance in this cause. ĐÒI HỎI TRẢ TỰ DO CHO CÔNG DÂN HOA KỲ MICHAEL PHƯƠNG MINH NGUYỄN ĐANG BỊ CHÍNH PHỦ VIỆT NAM BẮT GIAM KHÔNG LÝ DO Gia đình chúng tôi khẩn thiết kêu gọi sự quan tâm của tất cả mọi người đến hoàn cảnh của chồng và cha chúng tôi, anh Michael Phương Minh Nguyễn. Từ ngày 27 tháng Sáu năm 2018, anh Michael Phương đã về Việt Nam thăm viếng bạn bè và gia đình. Anh đã không trở về trên chuyến bay đã ấn định. Qua nhiều nguồn tin khác nhau, chúng tôi được biết anh đang bị chính quyền Việt Nam bắt giữ và giam cầm. Tính cho đến ngày 27 tháng Bảy, anh Michael Phương đã biệt tăm 21 ngày. Chính quyền Việt Nam từ chối xác nhận việc giam giữ, hay chia sẻ bất cứ tin tức gì về tình trạng của anh. Và cho đến hôm nay, chúng tôi cũng không xác định được nơi nhà giam nào và anh bị cáo buộc về tội gì. Bất cứ chính quyền nào giam giữ người không duyên cớ đã là một vi phạm trầm trọng đến nhân quyền và luật lệ quốc tế, đặc biệt hơn nữa người bị giam là công dân của một quốc gia khác. Anh Michael Phương, 54 tuổi, là một công dân Hoa Kỳ có bốn người con gái, một doanh nhân độc lập, và còn là một thành viên tích cực phục vụ trong cộng đồng nơi gia đình anh cư ngụ. Gia đình chúng tôi hiện đang cực kỳ lo lắng cho sự an toàn của anh. Chúng tôi, những công dân Hoa Kỳ, đòi hỏi chính quyền Việt Nam trả tự do tức khắc và vô điều kiện cho anh Michael Phương Minh Nguyễn. Việc từ chối sự yêu cầu chính đáng này càng làm chính quyền Việt Nam suy giảm uy tín trong cộng đồng quốc tế; và cũng ngang tầm mức quan trọng là cái nhìn của những người Việt Nam. Chúng tôi khẩn khoản kêu gọi sự hỗ trợ của quý vị trong công tác nhân quyền này.

Petition to Georgia State Senate, Honorable Judge Kimberly A. Childs, Victor Reynolds, Marty First, Georgia Governor, Donald Trump
Tell Georgia: Stop Prosecuting Medical Cannabis
Support Scott Negron's battle for change!
We want to help bring change in this Country. The lies and superstition used to block the use of Medical Cannabis has done nothing but damage to the people of this country since the 1930's. Here it has helped to erase a life of service and modest accomplishments.The Negron/Mazurek (Medical), Cannabis "Trafficking" trial Case No.15-9-02848-42 Cobb County ,Georgia Superior Court has been "resolved" by a forced, coerced plea deal that Negron took under direct threat to keep him from corruptly receiving over 30 years sentence in Prison. It left his life and health in financial and medical shambles. He stayed in the fight and sacrificed everything he had in hopes that the People of the State of Georgia and the Country would stand with him.Here, he sends his message: "I write to you as a fellow American citizen in hope that you are an advocate of Liberty. The lies and superstitions that have been used against Cannabis since the 1930's have forever affected millions of people in this country. If you support the choice for people who are ill, like myself ("Crohns disease" and severe chronic osteoarthritis/degenerative joint disease), to use medicinal cannabis for their pain & maladies my hope is you will consider helping us to get their story in front of more people. We need thousands of signatures and voices. Given the circumstance, we respectfully believed the State of Georgia had the wisdom, legal authority & discretion to make the decision not to prosecute. They selectively prosecuted me because of politics. They let a serviceman and his wife off Scot free for cultivating Medical Cannabis for his wife's Multiple Sclerosis the next county over. We are not the criminal element and traffickers the State has in mind when pursuing criminals. I'm grateful for your interest, hope you will consider supporting my efforts at exoneration and legislative changes.Please accept my sincere intention to be a part of solutions & rational change for Georgia. If there is any further information needed, please do not hesitate to contact me. I answer all inquiries personally" Excerpts from the Petition, article & statements: Essentially this criminal legal action sought to use a questionable & problematic search warrant, to prosecute and imprison a seriously suffering and medically disabled medical cannabis patient & his caregiver. They are accused of growing a medical cannabis for his various treatments. No evidence or accusation of sales, no distribution, no scales, no money, no valuables, no monetary enrichment. The charge of "trafficking" is alleged simply on the technically arbitrary amount of plants seized by weight; that’s it. Here is further information in the form of a short bio links About the defendants: Scott is an ex-professional & volunteer, Firefighter/First res-ponder medic & business owner. He has been repeatedly awarded & cited over the past 30 years for multiple "acts of Civic Heroism" both on the job and as a civilian, for intervening in accidents/fires & violent crimes on the behalf of other people at great risk to himself. He has done thousands of hours of volunteer & pro-Bono work starting in the 70's teaching basic computing to young kids at Montessori summer school in Santa Barbara. He was helping other very sick and suffering patients in the Atlanta near his adopted home of Cobb County Georgia. Here is his LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/scott-negron-85411524 He has always been involved in "doing", to help others.As he was raising his own son as a primary custody parent, he cared for his elderly grandparents through their struggle with Alzheimer's disease & dementia to maintain dignity in their old age for 10 years in his home as a custodial guardian, to keep them out of a nursing home until their death all while dealing with his own health issues & physical changes. He has worked hard, affected and saved many lives and served his community well. Now he is being painted as a criminal "with a history" because of non-serious previous arrests (no convictions) on record and incredibly, his assistant/caregiver was being tried as an accomplice! Co-defendant David Mazurek, Born in Green Bay Wisconsin moved to Georgia in 1973 is a local resident. A graduate of Tucker High School & Georgia Tech. University with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial & Aerospace Engineering. He worked in both Defense & Aerospace, held security clearances and (at 60 years old), has never been arrested, not even a misdemeanor traffic violation. He has never smoked, used or tried cannabis or any illegal narcotic in his life. In 2002 he went to work with Negron's small subcontracting business & eventually came to join their family, helping to care for "Jorge & Josephine", the grandparents as a live-in assistant caregiver. Jorge literally died in David’s arms & Josephine followed to the other side within months. After their deaths, Mazurek stayed on to help care for Scott's ever worsening medical disabilities. Despite never having used any illegal drugs in his entire life, both Mazurek & Negron were accused of "appearing heavily intoxicated with Cannabis". To sum up David’s culpability: an officer said: "there is no way he didn't know about it, so that means he was involved." There was also a misleading written accusation of violent assault being committed contained in and cited as probable cause on the application for the search warrant. The grand jury indictment has been mysteriously sealed. This issue is about medical Freedom (of choice) for medical cannabis, illegal search & asset seizure. As Scott wrote: "I would like people to know what they have done here in Cobb County. The corruption they level at citizens here. We need your help and are asking, praying for help & calling on you, fellow citizens and friends: all Medical Cannabis advocates for desperately needed moral/vocal support." Statement from Negron: "I hope to convince you to take a minute to look into my case, sign & circulate this petition to support me, a fellow who is sick and now in mortal danger. You see, I have been extremely ill, plagued with severe paralyzing chronic pain, degenerative joints & even longer with debilitating digestive ailments similar to Crohn's disease. I've run the gauntlet of doctors, almost a dozen of them, pain management and watched other friends die from long term heavy pain medication. Steroid treatment for asthma helped kill my father at 50 years old. That is one of the treatments they wanted to use on me. The acute, chronic pain started circa 2000, and by 2005 doctor prescribed pharmaceutical pain-killers/Pain management, massive regular doses of anti-inflammatory & analgesics made it 25%-35% worse, AND added over 200lbs to my weight in under 2 years. In 2009 I left pain management and began to use cannabis in various Medicinal ways to treat my pain, inflammation, as a digestive aid (primarily by consumption, and various other ways, such as Juiced, RAW), but I never participated in any black market activities. My health responded so well, that we began exploring further naturopathic options on healing." In 2015, our house was invaded on a very suspicious warrant and we were arrested in Cobb Country . Without any evidence of dealing or distribution what-so-ever, I was indited with the ridiculous charge of "Trafficking". However ludicrous the charges are - I am facing 15 to 30 YEARS IN PRISON. Please read my story and sign the petition to keep me FREE to recover from my long illnesses and to pursue medical health and happiness. "My assistant/caregiver & I are being tried in Cobb County Georgia, accused of "Trafficking." Is this the appropriate charge for the accusation of growing my own supply of Medical Cannabis for my health conditions? This issue is about medical Freedom (of choice). We need your help. I am asking, praying for help and calling on you, fellow citizens and friends: GEORGIA Medical Cannabis patients are desperately in need MORAL/VOCAL support from advocates. This issue is not about politics, it's about people who are suffering. I am a patient; a human being who is suffering, not a drug dealer or criminal profiteer. Now, after 18 months in prison, I return to my shattered life with 9 years of probation. I want people to understand that I do not view our justice system, the Judge, D.A. or officers in this case as enemies. I know they are simply doing their job. I hold no contempt for them. However, corruption is wrong, and Cobb County Government and the legal system here, this Judge Adel Grubbs is among the most corrupt. As a man and citizen, I truly want to be a benefit to this issue; I want to help develop solutions and in all modesty: After almost twenty years of constant illness & suffering and the constant research done to find out how to help myself, I feel qualified & knowledgeable enough to do so. The disinformation campaign waged against Cannabis has been over seventy years. I believe that everyone would benefit from further truthful education and tolerance when it comes to Medical Cannabis. If they knew the truth and the facts, I do not believe they would want to put us in prison. "People who need Cannabis as medicine should be able to access it without participating in black market criminal activities. I respectfully believe people should be able to get it or grow it legally and should not be turned into criminals, and I promise to do everything I can to help with this cause. Never in my life would I have intended to be in this position any more than I intended to be sick. My life is difficult right now but I am not here to whine. I am here to ask for help to fight." There are MANY OTHERS suffering worse than I am. Self preservation is a human right and the strongest power on earth in this country, over any office of government is the power of a Jury of citizens; the voice of the People. Does this sick man & His caregiver belong in prison? Imprisoning them for the decision to save himself from what he believed was a certain death is not in the best interest of the People.

"STATE OF EMERGENCY" (DRUG EPIDEMIC / NORTHERN NEW MEXICO) HELP SAVE OUR CULTURE
With national statistics, data , and high numbers of deaths,illnesses attributed too drugs and as well our failing public schools, as direct links to the "Drug Epidemic", in Northern New Mexico, we have been placed at the top of national graphs and state counties as one of the worst places for drug overdose, suicide and illness in the country. Thus, we the undersigned concerned tax paying citizens are "Demanding a "State of Emergency" be declared in the county of Rio Arriba, in the state of New Mexico. For several decades we have been in a heavily oppressed, repressed and dire situation in regard too loosing large numbers of souls too include : Teens, young and old adults as well as elderly citizens too the drug infestation, both legal ( narcotic/opiate, ect... ) and illegal ( heroin/meth/pink/cocaine, ect..) drugs. As the Federal Government and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that; 1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.
