Human Rights Violation
Petition to United Nations, Supreme Court of Kenya, Justice Maraga
BLOCK Dr. Tatu Kamau's appeal to legalise FGM in Kenya
Dr Tatu Kamau has filed a case at the Machakos High Court seeking to have female circumcision, also known as female genital mutilation (FGM), legalised for adult women who should 'have the right to choose FGM'. Women who choose to undergo FGM can do so now, as they have done for centuries. Therefore the legalization of this practice is completely unnecessary and will implicate Kenya in additional Human Rights issues such as Human Trafficking and Child Marriage. FGM/C is a harmful practice that violates the bodies of thousands of women and girls across the world and damages their mental, emotional and physical health. There are no proven health or other benefits associated with this harmful practice that is used to control and oppress women and girls in many cultures around the world. The issue of legalizing FGM is not simply a matter of 'giving women the right to choose FGM'. The domino effect of this legalization leads to increased cases of forced FGM and a violation of many women and girls' right to health due to community, cultural and familial pressures. Proven harmful effects of FGM include: - High drop out rates for girls in school - Forced Child Marriage - Reproductive Health Issues; severe pain, excessive tissue swelling, painful urination, UTIs and other infections, menstruation complications, inhibited sexual health and even death - Psychological Issues include; increased likelihood of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders and depression. Legalizing FGM will therefore justify this harmful practice that is illegal in International Law and International Human Rights doctrine including CEDAW, UDHR, ICCPR, ACHPR and the CRC. More girls and women will be subjected to this harmful practice if it is legalized, particularly in rural areas of Kenya. The cultural significance of FGM might not protect against psychological complications. Please support this cause and BLOCK the appeal for the legalization of FGM to help Kenyan women and girls escape this harmful practice and have a better future
Petition to Sajid Javid, The Home Office
Stop Home Office deportation of elderly couple to Iran
The UK Home Office is close to deporting an elderly Iranian couple, who have been UK residents for over 40 years and act as co-parents to their severely autistic grandchild. The 83-year-old great-grandfather and 73-year-old great-grandmother also rely on their family for daily support, as their health is poor. Their son Navid has termed the decision 'a death sentence'. Mozaffar Saberi and Rezvan Habibimarand bought their Edinburgh flat in 1978 and raised four children in the UK, all of whom have British citizenship. The couple originally came to the UK as visitors and did not seek British citizenship. Their later claim to remain in Britain was subsequently rejected. They have made repeated human rights applications to remain in the UK since 2013, but the Home Office has refused every one. Then-Home Secretary Theresa May introduced changes that tightened the 'adult dependant relative rule' in 2011. According to John Vassiliou, a solicitor at McGill & Co Solicitors, 'the consequence of this tightening is that it has become almost impossible for any British citizen or settled person to bring their adult parents into the UK.' Rezvan says: 'Going back to Iran would be the end of us...we have so many illnesses that it would not just be physically the end for us...but emotionally the end too: there's no one in Iran left for us to go back to.' Aside from the physical and emotional stresses of forcibly removing this elderly couple from their home of four decades, their support for their grandson is key to his wellbeing. Their help also enables the boy's mother, a chartered psychologist and single parent, to work as an NHS nurse. John Vassiliou says: 'it seems that the Home Office would prefer someone quit their job and resort to burdening the public purse rather than allowing the child's grandparents to stay and help out. ...the Government seems to have completely lost sight of the fact that these are two very elderly people with nobody in Iran, and with an entire family spanning three generations in the UK. It seems inhumane to us that such a matter is even up for debate.' The couple's final appeal is coming up. If this is a failure, like their previous cases, they will be sent back to Iran, where they have no-one. They are unlikely to be granted future visit visas to the UK. It is also considered unlikely their health would allow them to come back to the UK to visit their family. The option of travelling to Iran to see them would be particularly fraught for their grandson. I am appalled at this cruel decision to deport Mozaffar Saberi and Rezvan Habibimarand, and call upon the Home Office to revise their decision and allow this couple to spend the rest of their lives in the country they call home, surrounded by the family that they brought up here. I hope that many people agree that this treatment of vulnerable elderly people is shameful. This story was reported today (January 18th) by the Guardian, and more details are here: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jan/18/home-office-refuses-to-let-great-grandparents-remain-in-uk

Support me at European Court of Human Rights to protect the autistic community
Due to my unique situation from the extreme emotional, psychological and mental abuse inflicted upon me by several professional disciplines e.g. Police, Social Services, Court System etc which has resulted in my name and reputation to be permanently damaged beyond recognition. I consider my experiences and my ability to challenge at ‘any’ level will provide ‘us’ the best chances to proceed to the European Court of Human Rights. This would obviously ensure my life is restored but more importantly I can ‘with your assistance’ and ‘experiences’ to address the human rights violations and/or lack of support for a large proportion of the autistic community, the areas I would like to improve are the following: • Early recognition of autism (Any and all autism sub categories e.g. ADHD, HFA, PDD etc)• A autistic diagnostic pathway to provide a complete diagnosis of autism within a 3 – 6 month period depending on age to ensure least amount of disruption on a child’s education• The creation of a government minister of autistic affairs• An European public enquiry to investigate and gather evidence of the past and current situation experienced by autistic people and their families to ensure the UK provides the support, education and community settings that autistic children, young people and adults require to understand and be accepted in today’s society• A national multidisciplinary team to oversee / manage satellite autism teams to create a file on ALL autistic people (any age) and ensure support is provided whether it maybe a few hours to full time support which can vary throughout a individuals life• The development of LEA autism specific schools up to 16 / 18 depending on the child’s / young persons ability to attain GCSE’s with support and if possible to attend college to work towards either a academic / occupational subjects with individual support according to their personal requirements• The creation of a national ‘community interest company’ to develop and manage social, peer support and advocacy services accessible throughout the UK• The reverse of the current system whereby autistic young people and adults are locked up in psychiatric hospitals for indefinite periods• To ensure when a autistic person commits an criminal offence and it is deemed the person was never supported appropriately to ensure the offence would NOT have been committed if support was indeed provided? Then the person would be re-direct to the multidisciplinary team for 24/7 support to be provided.• The development of a range of permanent autism specific accommodation whereby autistic individuals have a ‘home for life’ with support (if deemed necessary) is withdrawn rather than the withdrawal of the accommodation and the individual is moved to inappropriate housing that does in a considerable amount of cases a deterioration of the persons mental health and puts them in harm of abuse• To ensure a level access to disability benefits to be provided with the intention that the individual autistic person is supported into part / full time employment according to their individual ability• The development of real-life supported employment throughout the UK and supporting local companies to recognise the ‘unique’ abilities of autistic people have and with support can enhance the company outlook on many levels ONLY TOGETHER WE CAN FIGHT BACK TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM The above are my views resulting from my extensive life experiences of the needs of autistic people throughout an individual’s life. This list can ONLY be changed with the assistance of autistic people (children, young people and adults) and just as important the personal experiences and personal viewpoints of their families and friends? Please email me ‘confidentiality’ NO names or locations will be passed to ‘any’ person, only your experiences will be used to demonstrate what is required to better support the autistic community and their families on fightingbackforautism at gmail com Please sign this petition and link it to your social media to encourage ALL your friends and family NOT only support your family but the thousands of autistic people (any age) diagnosed or still waiting a diagnosis for autism and their families……

SIA SECURITY officers to be equipted with PPE
Security Officers deal with violent and aggressive and drunken individuals each day, thus they are vulnerable when carrying out their duties. They have no powers apart from Common Law powers and have no Personal Protective Equipment such as stab vest etc.Each day we see in media of security officers been attacked,stabbed or even more been killed. We are asking government to grant powers to Security Officers and make Personal Protective Equipment mandatory throught the industry. This way, our security officer colleagues will be safe.i have personaly experienced agressive and threats to be stabbed at retail stores therefor no matter what kind of security you are doing you need to be equipment with PPE as standard to prevent any serious injury.we all have a family to go home to we do not want to be seriously injured when doing a job we enjoy doing.

Give Antonia the medication, nutrition and care she needs
We need to make an atrocious situation public and get some action. It’s a life and death situation that should not exist in 2018 in a civilised country like the UK. A mother is doing anything and everything humanly possible to fight for the life of her beautiful, amazing 21yr old EDS suffering daughter. Antonia Payne-Cheney has survived many years of constant pain with no quality of life. She has recently, with the aid of some amazing public support and donations, received life-saving spinal and brain surgery in Barcelona that the NHS we unable to provide. Now, having spent time rehabilitating she has returned to the UK and she looked amazing. We had never seen our dear friend sit upright on her own, in a normal armchair, never seen her stand up unsupported, nor walk a few steps and there she was doing all of these things and looking forward to getting stronger day by day.Unfortunately here we are a few weeks later, Antonia is now being refused the painkillers and nutrition (through a line directly into her heart) that she was given following the surgery. The discharge document from the wonderful clinic in Barcelona is being ignored and Mother Victoria and brother Samuel have to stand by and watch the deterioration as she receives only some of the same medications that she was being given before the surgery which were clearly not sufficient for her very complex conditions.Victoria is Antonia’s carer 24/7, she is exhausted and yet faces whatever every new day throws at her, whether it be a seizure, respiratory failure, sepsis, anything at all.As close friends we are trying to find a way to get some action, some help and expose the situation for what it is, totally unacceptable.Unfortunately, unless something is done very soon, Antonia could be yet another in the long list of EDS patients who lose the battle for life.It is absolutely appalling that nothing has been learnt by those who have already been lost by means of suicide, failure to diagnose or understand the illness. We treat self inflicted illness and injuries caused by smoking, drinking alcohol and taking drugs without thinking twice. We prosecute people who treat animals badly but we are treating, or not treating in this case, a British citizen who deserves a life with quality. Thank you for your time. Please show your support and sign the petition, Now!

Crash Out Brexit Will Create National Crisis - Revoking Article 50 Should be the Default
The recent leak of Project Yellow Hammer, the governments own investigation into the most likely consequences of No Deal Brexit, should be a wake up call for the nation. No Deal should be removed as the default option in the case of a Brexit deal not being obtained before the date we're due to leave the EU and be replaced by the revocation of Article 50, which allows us to remain as we currently are within the EU. No member of British parliament is elected to carry out the demands of their constituents without considering the consequences. Instead, they each have a duty of care to their constituents and citizens of the country as a whole, regardless of how a citizen may have voted in the referendum. In short, MPs are supposed to be representives, not delegates. Many dire warnings as well as lies and impossible promises were made before the referendum of 23rd June 2016. The lies and promises made by leave campaigners have been debunked and the warnings, made by experts falsely labelled as Project Fear, have already begun to come true.Debunked Leave Lies / Promises• Turkey is not joining the EU• There is no Brexit dividend• We already have control over law• We are not utilising all the powers available under EU law to control our bordersWarnings Come True• As business leave the country or go into administration, thousands of jobs have already been lost and is expected to rise to several hundred thousand.• Terrorist violence in Northern Ireland has already begun to resurface, citing the possibility of a hard border as a reason.• The NHS is suffering a decline in staff numbers as well as applications to study nursing.• Pharmaceutical companies have gagging orders placed upon them as they make what preparations they can for a Crash Out Brexit. Many business leaders, economists and industry experts have repeatedly stated that a large number companies will be forced to leave Britain, move employment abroad or close as they are either unable to cope with increased import costs or reduced export demands or both. This has already begun as with the state of car manufacturing, JP Morgan and Airbus for example. This would inevitably create a drop in employment meaning drops in people's income. With such a drop, we would likely see a sharp rise in poverty and homelessness. As a consequence of this rise in poverty, food banks and shelters would likely be unable to cope with increased demand leading to starvation. We currently source all Insulin for diabetics from the EU as well as chemicals to purify water before it's safe to drink. Without a trade deal agreed with the EU, we'd have no clean drinking water, no Insulin and a dramatic increase in unemployment. Leaving the EU without a deal will violate Human Rights if any person suffers an avoidable personal loss as a result of Brexit. This loss could be homelessness, worsened medical conditions or death of a loved one. Theresa May was considering repealing the Human Rights Act and Boris Johnson is assumed to be continuing her plans to do so. This would remove some of the legal consequences of a No Deal Brexit for him and hisConservative government, but it won't prevent people from suffering and dying unnecessarily as a result of No Deal. No-deal Brexit 'illegal because of imminent risks to life', says human rights lawyer - Independent Article, dated 7th January 2019 With new information coming to light since the EU referendum of 2016, further warnings of what specifically a Crash Out Brexit will bring are now being made, most of which are included in the government's own report. Because of these warning and because of these facts, it is clear a Crash Out Brexit will violate Human Rights as an act of unnecessary national neglect, affecting the poorest first and hardest, with the potential for many thousands of Civil Law claims to be made against the government by civilians. In order to prevent the need for these claims being made, the government only needs to remove crashing out from the options. As Crash Out Brexit is currently the default, we're drifting closer to crashing out every day. Removing it from the options and setting the revocation of Article 50 as the default is the most democratic and sensible option.Please sign and share this petition and together we can prevent unnecessary personal loss to anyone and begin solving the problems that caused Brexit in the first place.
