Stop Hate Crimes: Indian Man Physically Attacked and Wrongfully Accused in Slovakia

An Indian man is attacked on October 7th, 2017 by 3 white men, fights back in self-defense only after the threat to his life is escalated by kicks and punches, then is charged with First Degree Murder while his attackers go free. This happened in Bratislava, Slovakia next to the U.S. and German Embassies. Racially motivated attacks are not rare, and in this case, even though the Slovak judge and prosecution have the video footage and witness testimonies, the victim is still the one charged. The Slovak people are shielded from the truth.  The video shows one story <http://yt.vu/c/UC4EyFTDhl9BSH6JQVIjGiaA > but the news sells a different story. By supporting this petition, you will not only give hope to this man, but you will give hope to his family that he will finally be freed and come home. There is also hope that the Slovak courts will not continue to be swayed by racist public opinion and tabloids but lean toward true justice for victims of Hate Crimes. There is also hope that the attackers will be held accountable for the Hate Crime they committed against this man. I humbly urge you to support and share this petition to show this man and his family that they are not alone...that there is hope.

Recycle Markers

We have made 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic, and most of it is thrown away. Plastic takes more than 400 years to biodegrade. Markers use a lot of plastic. We need to recycle markers. Crayola can help with this. If we recycle, we can save lives.     Did you ever wonder where our plastic winds up after we get rid of it? All the plastic you get rid of winds up in the ocean and in the bellies of marine life. In the ocean, there are islands made up entirely of plastic and trash, one of the biggest being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The US uses 2 million plastic bottles in 5 minutes, and most of it winds up in the ocean. Sometimes your plastic winds up in third world countries for kids to sort through for a dollar a day. That is only $365 a year which does not go very far. These people and kids sometimes burn and sniff our plastic to see what types they are and that can be toxic and cause deadly illness. Our plastic winds up everywhere. So much plastic is wasted every day. Plastic is more valuable than steel, but only 5% of plastic is recycled whereas 90% of steel is recycled. 85 billion lbs. of electronics are thrown away yearly, and out of that only 1 million lbs. are recycled. There are 11 gyres of plastic in 5 oceans. Imagine Mt. Everest in the water and you will get the size of the gyres. The trash in the ocean is killing millions of albatross. Oil is a fossil fuel, so it can run out at any moment, and plastic is made of oil.       Plastic waste can be deadly. We need to save marine life, stop wasting a fossil fuel, and save lives from the burn and sniff technique. Here is the link to recycle them on your own: http://www.crayola.com/colorcycle.aspx
