Petition to NSW Police Force
NSW POLICE: please find my mother, Marion Barter
My name is Sally Leydon and the last time I saw my mother was in 1997. My mother, Marion Barter, told me that she was going on a long holiday to the UK, and we never saw her again. We knew something was wrong the moment she missed her son’s birthday – something she would never do. We have since found out that soon after she left for her ‘long holiday’ to England, she or someone using her passport returned to Australia. Her name was changed to ‘Florabella Natalia Marion Remakel’ and over the course of several weeks her bank account was completely drained in daily increments of $5000 – the maximum amount you can take out without identifying yourself. Finally, after years of fighting, she was placed on the NSW missing person’s list. But just four years later NSW police removed her from the list and nobody can tell me why. I believe NSW police have a lot to answer for: why did they remove my mother from the missing person list? Why is there no record of the police searching for her in her last known locations? Why do the police refuse to work with European authorities to find out if they might be able to track her whereabouts abroad? This is not just about my mother's case – this is about the justice of due course and a proper investigation for every missing person and everyone who's lost someone they love. For so many years I felt like I had to fight this battle alone. Now, I’m turning to ordinary people like you to help me to find my mother, so that I can finally find her or find closure. Channel 7 have made a podcast about my missing mother’s case – you can listen to it by searching for The Lady Vanishes and find out more information. Thank you for your supporting me.

Barbara O'Neill under fire - appeal to HCCC
Barbara O'Neill - world renown, much loved and highly respected Nutritionist and Health Director from Misty Mountain Health Retreat is in crisis right now, with the HCCC prohibiting her to practice or speak, following false allegations from 2 people involved in a political difference with Barbara's husband Michael O'Neill, for his involvement in a party that opposes compulsory medication. At least one of those making the allegations is an active member of the Australian Skeptics and the Friends of Science in Medicine, two organisations that use bullying and vilification extensively, and they are using the HCCC complaint process to punish or eliminate an opponent that has a differing ideology. Barbara has never advised these people, or had personal contact with them - it is purely a bullying tactic. The complaint uses broad terms and makes sweeping allegations that are merely theorising, and not in a single instance produces any harm or danger from any person that has been advised, treated, or had connections with Barbara and Misty Mountain Health Retreat. In the next few weeks, we have a chance to share the positive experiences we have had with Barbara O'Neill, and petition the HCCC to drop the allegations, and let this talented, caring lady get back to what she does best - educating people about how to take care of their bodies using 8 simple health laws - Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance/Balance, Fresh Air, Rest, Trust/Peace. You can find out more about Barbara at www.mmh.com.au and hear one of her life-changing health talks at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DYXS2R4f14 See for yourself what a kind, knowledgable, and caring person she is. BUT BEFORE YOU GO THERE, PLEASE VOTE NOW TO HELP CLEAR BARBARA ONEILL's excellent name, and please share this far and wide with your networks. We are aiming for 10,000 signatures in 2 weeks! THANK YOU for your amazing support! Friends of Barbara O'Neill
Petition to Alan Jones, 2GB RADIO STATION, Australian Communications and Media Authority
Alan Jones must stop using violent language towards women
Alan Jones describes himself as Australia’s most influential and respected radio broadcaster. Yet with that level of responsibility, he then uses that position to repeatedly suggest violence against women. Today he made the following comment regarding NZ Prime Minister, Jacinda Arden: ‘She's a clown, Jacinda Ardern; a complete clown.' 'I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat.' This is not the first time he has suggested violence as a means of dealing with women who don’t comply to his personal or political beliefs. In 2017, seeming to refer to Lord Mayor Clover Moore, he tweeted: ‘$11.3m - can you believe it? You can guess what many people would rather hang 58 metres over George Street...and it's not a Cloud Arch,’ In 2017, referring to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, he warned that her head "was in a noose" over her government's mining policy in the Liverpool Plains. In 2012, he suggested then PM Julia Gillard should be "shoved" in a "chaff bag" and taken "far out to sea". Violence against women in Australia is a serious problem. The statistics below are sobering: On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner.1 in 3 Australian women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15.1 in 5 Australian women has experienced sexual violence.1 in 6 Australian women has experienced physical or sexual violence by current or former partner.1 in 4 Australian women has experienced emotional abuse by a current or former partner.Australian women are nearly three times more likely than men to experience violence from an intimate partner.Australian women are almost four times more likely than men to be hospitalised after being assaulted by their spouse or partner.Women are more than twice as likely as men to have experienced fear or anxiety due to violence from a former partner.More than two-thirds (68%) of mothers who had children in their care when they experienced violence from their previous partner said their children had seen or heard the violence.Almost one in 10 women (9.4%) have experienced violence by a stranger since the age of 15. It is not appropriate for anyone, let alone media personalities, to suggest violent acts against women with whom one disagrees. Violent language, metaphorical or literal, contributes to an environment where women are not free to speak, and in some cases may validate the violent behaviour of male perpetrators. We call on Alan Jones to publicly apologise for his comments pertaining to the treatment of Jacinda Ardern. We suggest he positions himself instead as an ambassador against violence towards women, working on the ignorance and societal conditions that lead to it continuing. We call on 2GB and it’s sponsors to reconsider their association with Alan Jones, given his repeated damaging language directed at women he disagrees with. We believe this is particularly important in our current society where violence against women is pervasive. We do not believe he should be given an ongoing platform to spout his views. We call on Australians to turn off 2GB whilst Alan Jones’s remains employed. We must all work together to combat violence against women.

Stop the oppression and free the people of Kashmir
Immediate intervention required for the United Nations, United States, United kingdom. NATO in the Kashmir crisis The situation is URGENT. VIOLATION of human rights, breaking of democracy, ethnic minority cleansing attempt. Killings | Torture | Rape & Gang Rape | Excessive use of force | Illegal Draconian Laws | Enforced Disappearances | Use of Pellet – Firing Shot Guns | Arbitrary Arrests and Detention including Minors “It is a conflict that has robbed millions of their basic human rights and continues to this day to inflict untold suffering.” India has revoked occupied Kashmir's special autonomy through a rushed presidential decree Article 370 of the Indian constitution was scrapped on Monday 5 August 2019. The people of Kashmir Valley are under COMPLETE lockdown. They are forbidden to venture outside their homes thereby preventing them from access to food, medicines or freedom of movement in violation of the Geneva Convention. The current crisis is the backdrop to India’s unilateral efforts at changing the legal status of Kashmir by abrogating Article 35A and Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, laws that guarantee a special status to Kashmir. The current right wing BJP Government under Narendra Modi vowed to scrap the two articles that prevent non-state subjects from buying property and settling in Kashmir. With Article 370 scrapped on Monday 5 August 2019, tensions are heightened. This move to end this status will certainly lead to a demographic change in Jammu and Kashmir, a complete genecide. It is creating a state of unrest in the Valley and other regions, and possible war between India and Pakistan. There is unprecedented military buildup by the Indian government in Kashmir, and renewed military aggression on the Line of Control. In violation of the Geneva Convention, last week India is reported to have used cluster bombs in its attacks on civilian population on the Line of Control. Such acts make a nuclear war in South Asia a reality that demands immediate attention of the world community. All communication links with the Kashmir Valley have been shut down by the Indian government and its people are in complete isolationSecurity personnel stand guard during restrictions, in Jammu. Thanks!

Unban gaming from the FHS Library and stop the oppression of gamers
The library has long been the place for people to chill out and relax. Whether it be studying, playing board games with friends or enjoying a game, you can rely on the library to have enough room, resources and comfort, as well as a good internet connection. For many years, at recess and lunch, people who wish to play video games have been able to do so in the library, with comfortable couches and great desks, it is one of the few safe places to do so. Although the TDU has been introduced as a replacement, it is clearly insufficient to suit the needs of the many gamers of FHS. Why should people with a passion for gaming be needlessly punished and put down like this? Imagine if the hardcourt was closed off and everybody had to play sport in the gym. Clearly, FHS, a school that prides itself on its progressiveness and openmindedness has a prejudice against gamers. To all teachers and staff at FHS, please unban gaming from the library so everybody can enjoy its facilities equally
