Petition to The Honourable Raymond Williams NSW Minister for Disability Services
Unable to move and alone for 16hrs/day. The Government says I am too OLD for more support.
My name is Loredana. I am 68 years old. I have 2 adult children. I live alone in my own home. I was a Language Teacher for over 35 years. I have a great sense of humour, I love life, music, food, good conversation and meeting people. I also have a Progressive form of Multiple Sclerosis for which there is no cure or treatment. I can no longer walk, I cannot use my hands and I am totally reliant on paid carers for all my physical support needs. My carers wash me, feed me, move me from my bed to my wheelchair and back again. My carers change and empty my stoma and catheter bags. I also have assistance with housework, shopping and attending to my mail. I have no movement below my neck. I use my mouth to tilt my wheelchair and to make and receive phone calls.Multiple Sclerosis can affect almost all body functions depending on where the lesions take hold. As a result of my MS, I am extremely sensitive to the cold and heat, become easily fatigued and suffer from spasms and pain that are minimally relieved by medication. I receive 8hrs support per day, paid for by the State government. THIS IS NOT ENOUGH TO MEET MY BASIC NEEDS.I have been informed my funding package will not be reviewed, (despite evidence from a government sponsored assessment that it is inadequate), as I receive the “maximum amount” allowable. I cannot access the NDIS (individualised funding for people with disability) because the Federal government changed the Law to be able to discriminate against people over 65 with life-long disability and deny them access to the NDIS. I do not want to move into a Nursing Home and I would actually be worse off, with a significant reduction in the amount of 1:1 support I would be able to receive. Nursing Homes are not set up to meet the needs of someone like me. I want to keep living in my own home with a reasonable amount of support to meet my needs. I am asking that the Minister for Disability intervene on my behalf to increase my current funding package above the "capped amount". I am asking that my specific situation be considered in determining the support package I am entitled too rather than it be solely a financial decision. With additional support, I would be able to go out for medical appointments, shopping and social activities – THIS IS NOT CURRENTLY POSSIBLE.I would also be able to access some overnight support which I currently don’t have. If I have a spasm in the middle of the night I am unable to shift my weight to alleviate the affected limb. I must wait until my first carer arrives at 7.30am. Multiple Sclerosis can affect anyone, it does not discriminate. Multiple Sclerosis has trapped me in my body and the Government has trapped me in my home by setting a dollar amount on what my life is worth. PLEASE help me and sign my petition asking The Minister Ray Williams to intervene on my behalf for more adequate funding. THANKYOU!

To be honest this was Conducted over a anonymous phone call with no evidence or truth behind it I know I am not the only one who believes this needs to happen This is Urgent Who is taking the children who why and where so please sign and help me have them investigated I also strongly believe all facs workers should be drug tested! and A full review into Facs conduct And closely monitored please bring the kids home A shout out for our parental rights For our children' let's come together and sign this petition for our children and our children's children because their lives depend on it ! Brad hazzard has not only put the ngo's on notice he has also put every parent on notice. Every NGO in nsw will have their contract reviewed every 2 years. If they haven't reached their adoption quota then their contract is cancelled. So they will be pushing hard for adoption. What this means to you is every child in care can be forcibly adopted. You have no say and you can't stop it. Do not believe the Rumors about open adoption because once the adoption is final the adoptive parents can say they don't want you to see them. That's it their word is final. Hugh Jackman and Deborah lee Furness are classic Examples. They promised an open adoption to the biological mother and once it was final they packed up and came back to Australia the end result the mother killed herself. We need to fight this NOW. We need a #Royal Commission, we need accountability so please sign my petition let's make this happen and show brad hazzard we won't take this sitting down and forced removal then forced adoption Should not be happening please grant a Royal Commission into Family and Community Services NSW. Pru goodward you need to make a change 75% of kids in state care are there for no good reason Pru im holding u acountable. .... Thank you For Hearing My Voice And The Voice for all children Our Children

Fly the Aboriginal Flag atop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge permanently
As Australians, we are proud of our Aboriginal heritage and we want to recognise and celebrate this heritage every day. The flags flying from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge are wonderful symbols of our heritage and identity. However, the Aboriginal flag does not fly permanently atop of the Sydney Harbour bridge The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly and additional decision makers for a third flag to fly alongside the Australian and the NSW flags – one that acknowledges and celebrates our ancient and authentic indigenous culture; the red, black and yellow Aboriginal flag. Once you’ve signed, contact these three great Australians directly and encourage them to lead the way. #AboriginalflagonSHB GLADYS BEREJIKLIAN NSW PREMIER EMAIL: email@example.com PHONE: 02 8574 5000 FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/gladysnsw/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/GladysB MELINDA PAVEY NSW MINSTER FOR ROADS AND MARITIME AND FREIGHT EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org PHONE: 02 6562 6190 FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/melindapaveyMP/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/melindapaveyMP ANDREW CONSTANCE NSW MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT AND INFRASTRUCTURE EMAIL: email@example.com PHONE: 02 6492 2056 FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/AConstanceMP/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/AndrewConstance

Sign Petition! Investigate #Corruption, #ChildAbuse & #ParentAbuse in #FamilyCourt NOW!
FAMILY COURTS' CRIMINAL KID$ 4 CA$H APPROACH The draconian laws of the Family Courts and the administration of these laws manipulated by corrupt legal practitioners and the "Experts" they assign to write Reports to the Court, protect its administrators, report writers, lawyers, barristers, judicial officers and a $5 billion (2008 figures) Family Court Industry that is the envy of all other legal juristictions in Australia both in the amount of money its lawyers and barristers make (at the cost of destruction of young, voiceless, innocent lives) and the outrageous discretion and judicial impunity enjoyed by its judicial officers. The forbidding cost (monetary, emotional, physical) of brininging to justice individuals in a corrupt system by those who are already victims of the greed and rampant corruption in the Family Courts of Australia, has allowed this system to continue to abuse innocent people and allow corrupt legal practitioners to pervert the course of justice in its current disgraceful state on a daily basis. Family Courts continue to punish the family violence victims who find the courage against all odds to stand against their abusers. The currency of Family Court is blood and tears of innocent people. The results are lining of pockets of corrupt family court solicitors, barristers, report writers and others. The less good people stand up against the conduct tolerated and supported in the Family Court, the more arrogant the Family Court legal practitioners and its report writers will become. Please stand up and make your voice count against the rampant corruption that is in the texture and DNA of a system that rewards the solicitors, barristers, report writers and judges at the cost of devastation and destruction of the very victims of family violence and abuse who turn to these courts for protection. Family Court of Australia continues to put at risk the lives and well being of those it is supposed to protect, the Children! Nothing can be reported to the media. No professional body can Hear complaints in relation to any unlawful or illegal conduct of those that the Famaily Court protects. Judges have absolute power to make Orders that affect Children under such protectionist system. They rely on "Expert Reports" to protect themsleves. No one can question these so called "Experts". Expert Reports can be purchased. It seems that Court Orders can be purchased. It seems justice can be purchased in the Family Court. In its 30 plus years of operation, Australia's youth suicide rate has reached number 1 in the developed world. The majority of victims of youth suicide in Australia come from broken homes. In 2015, more young people aged 15-24 died of suicide in Australia than of any other cause. How we treat the most volunerable in our country should be the envy of the developed world instead we fail our children time and time in horrific circumstances. Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-24. (2014 CDC WISQARS) Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18. (2014 CDC WISQARS) More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED. Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 5,240 attempts by young people grades 7-12. Four out of Five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs These are fertile grounds for corruption of the highest degree. Any allegation of corruption and misconduct within the Court Sydnem can only be investigated by the Family Court itself behind closed doors. No one knows of the nature and outcome of complaints. There is no independent body to investigate the complaint about judicial misconduct of a Family Court Judge in our country. Unlike any other State or federal Judge, family Court Judges' misconduct is examined before other judges of the Family Court. Complaints about judicial conduct can not be heard other than in the unforgiving process of Appeal, where other Judges of the Family Court hear the Appeal. There needs to be an independent Royal Commission into the suffering of victims of Family Courts, the conduct of corrupt legal practitioners, the appointment of "Experts" to write reports,..., to alleviate the injustice and harm bestowed upon innocent children and parents for decades. #EnoughIsEnough
Petition to Immigration Minister Peter Dutton (Australian Immigration Minister), Hon Alex Hawke, Australian Immigration and Border Protection
Minister Peter Dutton, Australia is not a Safe Haven for Crimes against children
My suffering has been ignored by Australian Immigration for 12 months while they protect and give a Safe Haven to a Wanted person who is hiding from her crimes in Australia on a Visa and who has an INTERPOL Red Notice issued against her for 2 counts of trying to kill me (Attempted Murder). I am an Australian child and seeking Justice for two attempts on my life and the accused is a Filipino who is taking refuge in Australia on a Visa to hide from her crimes. Two (2) Warrants have been issued in the Philippines for two (2) counts of Attempted Murder. The accused fled to Australia to avoid prosecution after Sexually Abusing another child in the Philippines, and a Warrant for Child Sexual Abuse of a different child is also expected within weeks. Since the second attempt on my life I have suffered traumatic nightmares every night and I need Justice. Under Section 501 (Character Test) of the Australian Migration Act the accused should have had her Visa cancelled. Minister Dutton you recently said, Quote: "I want to concentrate very closely on child sex offenders and people that have committed offenses against children... If I do nothing else in my time in parliament, I'd be very proud of just that," Minister Dutton, Australia should not be a refuge for Wanted people to hide from crimes against children. We are waiting for you to act on child sex offenders and people that have committed offenses against children. You can start with my Case which involves Child Sexual Abuse and Attempted Murder of a child, protect the Australian community and give us Justice. By ignoring this you are now putting all children in Australia at risk of being Abused by this woman, and letting us suffer. Name of Accused withheld so she does not get my petition deleted again!

AUSTRALIAN KINSHIP CARERS NEED YOUR HELP
[What if this happened to you? Could you cope?]
An infant is dropped off to you by the police at 2am in the morning. A quick phone call was the only warning. She has been removed from her parents (your kin) due to abuse or neglect or for safety reasons. DHHS follow up in a few days and deem the child to be safe and close their case. You are left with an unsettled child, no funds, no support and many years later massive court costs to ensure that child remains safe and loved and cared for. This is one of many horror stories Kinship carers are forced to live through. Could you? As many of you are aware the incidence of children being cared for by relatives is increasing at an alarming rate in Australia. What you may not know is that many of these carers –Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles Etc- are doing so WITHOUT ANY SUPPORT from the government or community service providers. They receive no funding to assist with raising this child and many have no option other than to access their superannuation to support a safe environment for the child/ren and raise them above the poverty line. Often having to give up their job, their lifestyle must change completely to accommodate the needs of the child. They do the same job as foster carers however they receive no acknowledgement, nor any financial assistance. They receive no legal aid as this is given to the biological parents to attempt to reunify with that child. Some of the parents of these children may have mental health issues or a history of drug abuse however they are not held accountable for their actions or lack of care for their child knowing that the government will support them in getting the child back even though no requirements have been met. Having a child is not a right it is a privilege. These innocent children are being abused by the system and being forced to return to their biological parent/s into an unsafe, and at times volatile environment where their needs are not being met and more psychological damage is being done before being returned to the kinship carer who then is faced with challenging behaviours and professional bills to attempt to repair the damage caused. There are no accurate statistics on how many kinship carers there are in Australia as many choose not to be known officially for fear of DHHS reprisals, and those that have had children placed in their care by DHHS have had their case closed (and therefore aren’t counted in statistics) due to the child being in a safe environment. Funding is not offered if the case is closed early. Kinship carers love, feed, clothe and pay for all medical expenses out of their own pocket and as they are ageing themselves often put their own needs last and cannot afford to pay for their medical expenses. The childrens needs cost more each year and the carers do a fantastic job in an uncertain environment. The children are their priority. ALL kinship carers should be recognised and provided with the same financial assistance as foster carers. (Foster carers get a choice to be carers, we have no choice!) This is the next generation they are raising, to be productive, stable members of society. But they need your signature, to raise awareness, to change the system and to provide a life above the poverty line for Australia’s most vulnerable carers and children. Please sign and share to show your support.
Petition to Gladys Berejiklian
Continue Cumberland T5 train services running from and to Campbelltown
Decision taken by the NSW Premier to operate Cumberland Line -T5 train services from Leppington; stopping current services operating from/to Campbelltown has been considered seriously irresponsible by most commuters. Passengers will have to allow extra time to travel to Parramatta, Blacktown, Penrith and forced to change in Glenfield and or Granville. Passengers have been suffering for a long time squeezing themselves in 4 old carriages very infrequent services; most cases with no air-conditioned facilities. Altering these services will seriously affect working class, students travelling from and to Macarthur regions. Also, commuter traveling from and to Southern Highlands and country NSW have to suffer more and more as they have to make additional changes. We demand T5 Cumberland services continue operating from/to Campbelltown with full 8 new lots of carriages immediately. To service high demand from fast growing Leppington area, additional services can be added in between services running from and to Campbelltown. Please raise you voice and support this petition!
