Help free a disabled U.S Veteran wrongfully imprisoned in Kuwait.
My daughter may never see her father again. Jermaine Rogers has served his country both in the military and as a contractor overseas. He now faces a lifetime in a foreign jail over fake drug charges. I need your help to get the Trump administration to bring him home. U.S. civilians serving to protect our country and in support of our military have been targeted by Kuwaiti police in the past. These charges have often turned out to be false, but only after the U.S. government intervened on their behalf. Jermaine needs that intervention today. Please sign my petition asking the Trump administration to demand the release of Jermaine Rogers so he can come back to the U.S. Death by hanging. That is almost what happened to Jermaine when he was falsely accused of dealing drugs. The death sentence was dropped, but a lifetime in jail isn’t much better, especially when you are innocent and thousands of miles away in a foreign land. I know Jermaine is innocent. He believes in serving America and that means representing our country with pride and the best behavior. Even if you do not believe my pleas, we should all agree a man who has served his country should not get life in prison for the non-violent crimes they claim he committed. So many people are standing up and speaking on behalf of Jermaine — people like U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut. As his family, we can’t thank them enough. We now need you. Please sign my petition today. Your signature will help bring our family together again and ensure actual justice is served for an American hero.

Help Restore Peace in Nicaragua
Nicaragua is in crisis. What initially began as peaceful protests has evolved into countrywide conflicts between unarmed civilians and government paramilitary forces. Sparked by constitutional changes to consolidate power and eliminate political competition along with some of the most rampant and widespread corruption in the region, the people finally had enough when Ortega let precious ecological sites burn down rather than accept help from neighboring countries and imposed controversial social security reforms. More than 100 people, including children, have died since anti-government protests began six weeks ago, several hundred have disappeared and over 1,000 have been injured. Private sector, civil society and activists have banned together to remain steadfast in their demands for justice and the restoration of democratic institutions. Violence has broken out throughout the country. The economy is now at a standstill. Local businesses are being forced to shut their doors and communities are being thrown into despair as tourism has ceased and violence reigns. As in times of civil unrest, women are bearing a disproportionate burden of violent threats. JOIN US in calling on international government leaders, members of the U.S. Congress and Senate, and multi-national corporate executives to raise their voices on behalf of the Nicaraguan people.
Petition to United Nations, President of the United States
On June 10, 2018 the Vietnamese government illegally arrested Will Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American graduate student and Yale University alumnus, for his taking part in a peaceful demonstration voicing the Vietnamese people's concerns about the two proposed bills: one aimed at creating special economic zones that would solidify the establishment of Chinese authority inside Vietnam and one aimed at controlling access to the Internet. Along with many other fellow demonstrators, Will Nguyen was brutally beaten, dragged along the street, jailed, denied legal presentation and likely tortured to force a confession. The two recent bills are absolutely horrifying to the Vietnamese people to say the least: one is, effectively and indisputably, to cede more land to China, and one to shut up anyone disagreeing with the government. Such horrendous facts are not lost on anyone - including Will Nguyen. As an American, he could have shrugged off, stood idly by and pretended nothing happened during his visit in Vietnam. He chose to make a difference by joining the people of his ancestry to peacefully demand the Vietnamese government to do the very duties that it has sworn to do: defend the country's sovereignty and serve the people. What the demonstrators did was not only legal and supported by Vietnam’s constitution, but also honorable. How they are being treated is shameful, cruel, and barbaric. In 2015, the Vietnamese government has ratified the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment to gain acceptance by the international community. Three years later, Vietnam has failed miserably its commitment to stop such acts of brutality. In broad daylight, Vietnamese government has severely beaten peaceful demonstrators including a US citizen, Will Nguyen, and has continued its heinous acts within the four walls of its jail. We, the freedom loving people of the world, hereby demand an immediate and unconditional release of Will Nguyen along with other currently detained demonstrators. Failure to do so only serves to further discredit the Vietnamese government in the eyes of the international community, and more importantly, of the Vietnamese people. We respectfully ask for your assistance in this cause. Sincerely,
Petition to United Nations
Hold Saudi Arabia Accountable - Free Saudi Activists!
Saudi Arabia has arrested at least ten women’s rights activists for peacefully protesting the government’s treatment of women. Join us in uniting with Saudi activists who demand that the United Nations hold Saudi Arabia accountable for human rights violations. In Saudi Arabia, women have been campaigning for decades against a government which bans them from driving cars and requires that they seek the permission of a male guardian before traveling or making any major decisions. These laws limit women’s ability to move about their communities or accomplish even basic tasks, and make them extremely vulnerable to gendered abuse. There are even cases of women being imprisoned for attempting to escape their families. Saudi activists believe these laws are oppressive and a violation of women’s human rights – and are now being arrested for speaking out for the oppression they face. The arrests occurred as a retaliation against people who had challenged the driving ban, just weeks before the country was set to lift it. Now activists on the ground live in fear that there may be more arrests, and those being held have been denied access to any legal representation. The UN must use its power to demand the immediate and unconditional release of all activists being detained solely for their human rights work. Please join Women’s March Global and our Free Saudi Women Coalition in standing with Saudi women.
Petition to Kim Foxx, Bruce Rauner
New trial for an innocent man
Detective Richard Zuley may be most famous for his notorious interrogations at Guantanamo Bay, but he first learned his torture techniques in the interrogation rooms of Chicago. Now, this 30-year veteran of the Chicago PD is under investigation for using illegal methods to coerce confessions that have put several possibly innocent people behind bars. One of his cases has already been overturned, and a man who spent 23 years in prison is now finally free. But while officials slowly make their way through the pages of evidence against this corrupt cop, my friend Lee Harris -- another of Zuley’s many victims -- still wastes away in prison. My name is Robert. From 2000-2001, I shared a cell with Lee. We became good friends. Like a lot of people in prison, he would go on about how he was innocent and how he had been wrongly accused, but I never knew what to believe. However, when I received letters from the “witness” who put him away, apologizing for lying on the stand, I started digging: Lee’s conviction doesn’t add up. And now that I am on the outside, I am doing everything I can to get him a new trial so he can prove his innocence. I am asking Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office to grant my friend Lee Harris a new trial, so he can prove his innocence. He shouldn’t spend one more day behind bars while the true criminal is allowed to walk free. At first, Lee collaborated with Detective Zuley to help him find the real killer in the crime he is doing time for. Facing public pressure to find the killer, they pressed Lee for information using both threats and rewards. In one instance, Zuley offered him a $20,000 reward, and in another, he threatened to stop providing protection for his family, exposing them to retaliation. When they couldn’t find the real killer, they turned on their informant and charged him with the crime. They had no murder weapon or evidence connecting Lee to the crime. Yet, even with all these legal missteps and the lack of evidence, they still threw Lee behind bars for 90 years. He remains in jail to this day for a crime I am sure he didn’t commit. And I am not the only one: Chicago attorney Jennifer Blagg, who has won many exonerations in the US, is now taking a closer look at Harris’ conviction. It’s time to grant my friend Lee Harris a new trial and let true justice be served. We cannot continue to keep this man behind bars while the real killer could be walking the streets. Please sign my petition and help me fight for justice for Lee Harris.

STOP GANG STALKING on the Miami, Florida public!
If you only search the term Gang Stalking on this Change.org website, you will see that I am not alone as a targeted individual. There are at least 10 other petitions explaining the scenarios. I have been a target since 2001. All of the tell tale signs of gang stalking have been witnessed by myself , my neighbors, and friends for almost two decades now. My nextdoor neighbors to the South of us have been illegally organizing the gang stalking, surveilling, and harassing my family for over 10 years now. These people are recruiting their own children and teenage friends to do their dirty work. The photo above is of the location of a computer network cable driven device which has been pointed at our house and my bedroom window for approximately 10 years or since the house was last painted. Oh and these people are so disrespectful and abusive that while my father was on his death bed, the daughter and three of her friends all rushed the fence outside his window to see the body as well as came outside and took photos of his body being removed from our home while being loaded into the vehicle on its way to the funeral home. They followed it down the street taking photos like it was a joke. Great parenting! Worst neighbors ever anywhere. In my humble opinion they are real scumbags which are constantly trying to start conversations with us like nothing ever happened. My family are obviously being stalked by these sociopaths next door.These Gang Stalkers need to be taken to justice. They are modern terrorists operating on US territories. I do not know how they chose me, but they did. Speaking to the local authorities will get you no where. Contact your Senators and Congressmen if you feel you too are a victim. https://researchorganizedgangstalking.wordpress.com/fight-back-how-to-build-evidence-of-organized-gang-stalking-for-a-civil-lawsuit/ https://www.flgov.com/contact-governor/ Office of Governor Rick Scott https://www.flsenate.gov/Senators/s40 Senator Annette Taddeo https://www.rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact Senator Marco Rubio https://www.billnelson.senate.gov/contact-bill Senator Bill Nelson I am asking for your support to Please help protect myself and my family from the terroristic enemies living next door!

Petition to NJ Transit/Coach USA and World Wide Public Transportation, Office of the Attorney General of New Jersey Gurbir Grewel
Stop reckless, aggressive, and rude bus drivers from carelessly taking young innocent lives like Deshon Johnson.
Hello, My name is Naomi Johnson, Deshon Johnson's mother, and I am looking to pass a bill honoring my son Deshon Johnson to make a positive change for other victims everywhere. I want the bill to focus on preventing tragic deaths. I know the bill will not be a remedy to bring back loved ones, but I would like it to implement safety awareness and jail time for the bus drivers. I want a memorial at the location where Deshon's life ended or a street adopted and named in Deshon's honor. I am heartbroken every day thinking about how tragic Deshon’s death was. On the morning of July 18th, 2012 there is footage of Deshon Johnson patiently arriving at the seven eleven at 10:30 am and waiting for the bus till the bus arrived at 10:48 am. Deshon was patiently waiting at the bus stop to go to work. Once Deshon notices the bus time arrival he had gotten up to signal the bus to stop. Instead of the bus driver stopping to pick up his passengers he continues to speed through the green light and around the sharp corner. Deshon flagged the bus to stop again, but the bus kept on going speeding around the corner and the bus never stopped to pick him up. So, Deshon ran a few steps down from the bus stop on the corner of Bay Ave and Broad Street. My son banged on the front door while he was at the corner of the handicapped sidewalk. The Community Coach bus driver run over my child twice knocking him down. Romaine was driver driving NJ Transit bus when he dragged Deshon 50 to 100 feet to his death. There needs to be a law that allows overseeing company like Community Coach that is based in Scotland to hold these bus drivers accountable for these countless death. It is hard to get in contact with Coach to make a complaint. Deshon was not the only person that was killed by a bus driver, and no arrest or charges have been brought against the driver to this day. On January 23, 2012, a Coach USA bus driver took 21-year-old Christie Noble-Ross life who is a neighbor that lived on the same floor across the hall from Deshon Johnson. While Christie Nobel was on her way dropping her son off to daycare. The bus came around the corner of Main and South Harrison streets in East Orange killing her on impact. These cases by the Essex County Prosecutor Detective are dismissed and labeled as an accident without further investigation and this needs to stop. When a bus is speeding on residential roads above the speed limit, and turning around the corner at a fast speed it should not be considered an accident. That is negligence and murder. The prosecutors never pull up the drivers' record to see if he had other fatality/fractions. or his cell phone records to see if he was distracted. Needless to say, the driver had a prior accident before killing my son and after killing my son. The driver had to take up defensive driving course before killing my son. The drivers also have to break in entry charges. These prior incidents speak the value of the driver misbehaved personality traits. I live every day with the lawyer showing me a picture of my son's remains over the road and with the detail description about how my son's brain was in the bus wheel by retired judge Lawrence evil inhuman behavior to mentally break me down. He shows no type of humanity about my son get killed, instead, he was trying to blame my son for his death. I live with these images torrent me for the rest of my life. Please help us bring justice for Deshon Johnson and bring an end to the abuse of the NJ Transit and Coach USA bus drivers putting our lives at risk every day just to catch a bus. In November 2012 the Johnson's Family civil lawyer Brad hired a criminal lawyer to be a liaison between the Prosecutor's office and the family to pass on new information. Needless to say, the lawyer failed to do his job, took our money and Deshon's killer walked away a free man and his case were closed in Feb. 2013. The criminal lawyer Saluti was referred to us to work as an extension of the prosecutor's office. Now the bus driver is back to work supporting his family but Deshon is unable to go back to his job to support (me) his disable mother. This legalizes murder needs to stop!!!

Petition to Kevin McCarty
We Demand A Civic Right to Vote While on Parole
In 1850 California enacted its felony disenfranchisement law which stated, "Laws shall be made to exclude from... the right of suffrage those who shall hereafter be convicted of bribery, perjury, forgery, or other high crimes." The constitution also specifically bars from voting "those convicted of any infamous crime." As UC Berkeley News writer Jonathan Simon accurately stated, “Today, parole supervision involves an additional sentence of up to three years of correctional custody in the community, for all prisoners released from a California prison. During this time, the ex-prisoner is "supervised" by a parole agent and subject to numerous conditions (such as allowing police searches of one's home and person, not using illegal drugs, and obeying all orders of one's parole agent).” There are over 50,000 individuals currently on parole in CA. African-Americans remain over-represented, making up 26% of those on parole, while only 6% of the adult state population. Felon disenfranchisement is unconstitutional! Individuals who have completed their terms of physical confinement and have reintegrated back into the community should be allowed to vote.
