Petition to Scott Morrison, United Nations
Bring pregnant Zaynab Sharrouf and her siblings back to Australia.
Zaynab is a young Australian woman trapped in a Syrian refugee camp. She is heavily pregnant, injured, malnourished, and in desperate need of medical care. I am calling on the Australian government to immediately allow Zaynab to return to Australia, along with her two siblings and her two young children. Their father was an infamous Islamic State terrorist who took Zaynab and her siblings to Syria and married her off when she was just 13 years old. Her father and mother are both now dead, leaving Zaynab and her young family alone and defenceless in a squalid refugee camp. These children are being held accountable by the Australian Government for the crimes of their father. Zaynab's maternal grandmother, Karen Nettleton, has flown to Syria to do all she can to bring her family home. I'm calling on the Australian government and Prime Minister Scott Morrison to urgently expedite the repatriation of these young people. Surely anyone can see this is unjust and immoral. These children are innocent, Australian citizens, victims of a terrible war. Please, sign and share this petition.

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 Marise Payne, Scott Morrison
Free Julian Assange, before it's too late. Sign to STOP the USA Extradition
Julian Assange has been forcibly removed from political asylum and has been arrested. He is no longer in the Ecuadorian Embassy and instead is in British police custody. Julian Assange now faces the prospect of extradition to the USA for publishing facts delivered to him as a journalist and those facts revealed systemic government corruption and war crimes. These were the exact issues he required protection from and why he accepted Ecuadorian political asylum. Julian Assange is an Australian Citizen who had been "arbitrarily" detained for over 8 years and more recently had endured over 1 year of torture in the form of continuous solitary confinement. Deprived of sunlight, contact with the outside world and proper healthcare. The United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner on Feb. 5, 2016 determined that Julian Assange's arbitrary detention "should be brought to an end". Julian Assange is an awarded and respected international journalist who has never incorrectly published any news. We respectfully request the Prime Minister and/or the Foreign Minister of the Australian Government intervene and ensure Julian Assange's freedom of safe passage and return to his home Australia or any other location that Julian Assange requests to travel to. We further respectfully request that the Australian Government where influence can be made with friendly nations, that the Australian Government ensure that no extradition order is effected on Julian Assange from the USA that may otherwise impinge on his ongoing freedom of passage and existence. You can read more about this campaign in the updates below. Please, sign and share this petition. Thank you.
Petition to Australian Government
STOP THE DISCRIMINATION OF AUSTRALIAN BORN CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES!
Australian born children with disabilities are being denied access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) simply because their parents are New Zealand citizens. Currently children born in Australia to New Zealand parents who are on the Non Protected Special Category Visa (any New Zealander who moved to Australia after 26th Feb 2001) are denied access to the NDIS. New Zealanders living in Australia pay the exact sames taxes as Australians (including the Medicare Levy, that funds the NDIS) but yet we are denied access to it for our children. How is that not discrimination? Only once the child turns 10 years old and has been continuously living in Australia they can then apply for citizenship and then go on to apply for NDIS. Ten years old is too late for these children with disabilities, research shows that early intervention is critical to the child's ability to mobilise, play, socialise, learn and develop . By denying access to the NDIS, not only are they delaying and increasing the cost to the tax payers, they are reducing the child's quality of life significantly. It is time someone had a voice for these innocent children with disabilities who have fallen through this eligibility criteria loophole. These children deserve a chance at life too, they shouldn't have to sit here and wait 10 years watching their quality of life decline. We are calling on the Australian Government to change the eligibility criteria to the NDIS so that our Australian born children are entitled. Please help us support this cause. OUR STORY: My wife Brooke and I moved to Australia in 2005,we have both always worked and always paid our taxes,we built a family home and have had three beautiful children, my two daughters Maddison who is 6 years old and Bailee who is 5 years old and our son Kaiden who is 3 years old. Three years ago my wife gave birth to our son Kaiden, and what should of been a wonderful time filled of love and happiness, quickly turned into fear and sadness. Shortly after our son was born, he had bleeding on his brain. Kaiden was rushed in for emergency brain surgery to remove the blood clot. This sadly resulted in him suffering brain damage, and then a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Ever since then we have struggled financially to keep up with the care for our son and the stresses of everyday life. Kaiden was officially denied NDIS access purely based on the fact that we (his parents), are New Zealand citizens. Kaiden's therapy and equipment costs are up too $100,000 per year. Without the NDIS funding, these costs are impossible for us to maintain. This legislation needs to change for us and hundreds of other New Zealand families living here in Australia stuck in similar situation. We are asking for your help, please sign and share this petition.

Minister please cancel the Visas of Foreigners Wanted abroad for Crimes against children
Minister David Coleman, More than 26,000 Australians who are supporting me and have signed this Petition for you to act.. My suffering has been ignored by Australian Immigration for 24 months while they protect and give a Safe Haven to a Wanted person who is hiding in Australia on a Visa from her crimes in the Philippines and who has an INTERPOL Red Notice issued against her for 2 counts of trying to kill me (Attempted Murder) and 1 count of child Abuse. 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. Three (3) Warrants have been issued in the Philippines for two (2) counts of Attempted Murder and one (1) count of child Abuse. The accused fled to Australia to avoid prosecution after having sex with a minor in the Philippines, and a Warrant for Child Abuse has been issued with two (5) more Warrants expected soon. 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 as there is an INTERPOL Red Notice issued against her and she is Wanted. These nightmares ceased when I returned to the Philippines as I thought I was finally going to get Justice. The nightmares have returned, and my sleepwalking, waking up in different places crying as somebody is chasing me with knives. Cancelling her Visa will force her to face her crimes in the Philippines, but Australian Immigration have not acted and are ignoring an INTERPOL International Red Notice. Besides the many Witnesses to the crimes that Australian Immigration have been sent through Diplomatic channels their Affidavits, Australian Immigration have her written admission that she Posted in Public last year on the Internet that she tried to kill me. Immigration are fully aware and have evidence that she has been breaking numerous criminal laws in Australia while she has been given a Safe Haven, such as Stalking, Conspiring to Bring False Accusation, Extortion, messaging death threats, and Fraud and this is not "Good Character" Immigration have evidence her Visa Application was Fraudulent as she did not declare her crimes in the Philippines as required on the Application which is a serious Commonwealth Offense. In 2014 the Minister for Immigration was given Super Powers to personally Cancel Visa's under Character Grounds, and I request you use your powers and be compassionate with me like the Au Pairs so I can have Justice. Being discriminatory or having selective Justice, is no Justice at all. You need to have the same rules for all. I am waiting for you to show your compassion before I surrender and cut a little deeper. Name of Accused withheld so she does not get my petition deleted again!
Petition to Daniel Andrews
Maximum Punishment for crimes that cause the death of women
Sentencing laws must be changed and the maximum punishment for crimes that cause the death of women in our society must be enforced. Mandatory sentencing must be introduced for murder and violent crimes against women. The continued appalling judgements and grossly inadequate sentencing handed out by the judiciary continue to see the law working in the favour of the defendant, not the victim. This includes plea bargaining to reduce sentences for murder, concurrent sentencing for multiple crimes and decisions in domestic violence whereby the fact the victim was known to the perpetrator is considered a lesser crime. The following women have been murdered by men in Victoria in 2018/2019 and this list does not include all women whose lives have been so brutally taken away: Emily Miller, 31Kym Taylor, 37Dannyll Goodsell, 33Gayle Potter, 46Samantha Fraser, 38Laa Chol, 19Fatima Batool (age unknown)Amanda Harris, 36Eurydice Dixon, 22Caroline Willis, 69Simone Fraser, 57Katherine Daley, 29Le Ngoc Le, 77Radmilla Stevonovic, 65Mary Freeman, 41Antonia Tatchell, 43Aiia Maasarwe, 21Vicki Ramadan, 77 We send our deepest and heartfelt sympathies to their families, however this is not enough. Enough is enough, it is time to act. *Names of victims have been collated through the work of 'Destroy the Joint, Counting Dead Women Australia' a "national toll" of women killed by violence.

Condemn ALL countries that persecute the LGBT community - Brunei is not alone!
We want the Australian government and elected officials to condemn foreign persecution of people who identify as LGBT. We, as a collective community, call upon our leaders to denounce countries that whip, stone and imprison homosexuals. They must impose sanctions and reconsider Australia’s relationship with these barbaric nations. Countries like this have no place in our global community. More needs to be done to educate LGBT Aussies on countries that pose a risk to our basic human rights. These countries are dangerous, and the government needs to increase the threat level on Smart Traveller in order to protect our citizens. It is unacceptable for the Department of Foreign Affairs to advise travellers to simply “exercise normal safety precautions”. Nor should Smart Traveller advisors suggest gay travellers “act heterosexual” as reported in this news.com.au article: https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-advice/smart-traveller-tells-gay-couple-concerned-about-brunei-airlines-flight-to-act-straight/news-story/dbf8eff0f76e5adc80929d01a2e8df42 Although Brunei is currently in the media, they are not the only country whose laws victimise people from the LGBT minority. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Singapore all have laws that criminalise homosexuality. Western countries are often silent on such oppression, especially when the country in question is their ally. Australian citizens should not be fearful of visiting other countries due to their laws. We must stand against all nations which represent the worse of humanity. Australia must play its role in our global society and call out hate wherever it manifests itself.

Petition to David Colman MP Minister for Immigration Citizenship & Multicultural Affairs, Shayne Neumann MP Shadow Minister for Immigration & Border Protection, Peter Dutton MP Minister for Home Affairs
Let Kinley and his family stay in Australia
Imagine working hard to build a new life for your young family in your adopted home of Australia. Imagine discovering that one of your children is deaf, and giving them all the support they need to learn sign language. Imagine after years of building your new life, you learn that your entire family is about to be deported back to Bhutan - because the government doesn’t want to provide any care or support for your deaf son. Kinley and his family deserve to stay in Australia, but because of Kinley’s hearing loss and learning difficulties, he does not meet the health requirements for permanent residency. As a consequence, the family will face deportation unless given special consideration by David Coleman MP, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship & Multicultural Affairs. It was only when Kinley arrived in Australia that his hearing loss was accurately diagnosed and hearing aids provided for him. It was also only upon his arrival in Australia that Kinley was exposed to sign language and that his language and communication skills started to develop. If they are forced to return to Bhutan, Kinley will not be able to continue developing his sign language skills. He will be forced back into a life of isolation, and silence. Kinley’s parents, Tshering and Jangchu have contributed in many ways to Australia. They have been excellent, peace-loving citizens; they have been consistent members of our workforce and been willing to move to a regional area that was requiring workers; they have contributed as taxpayers and become financially independent; they have actively contributed to the Australia-Bhutanese and wider Australian communities. Should they be returned to Bhutan, it would be Australia’s loss. Can you help me send a message to the Immigration Minister by signing and share this petition? Let the minister know that this decent, hardworking family deserves to stay here. What kind of country would deport a family simply for having a deaf son? This is not who we are. Thank you.
