Contre la radiation de la SNCF de Christophe et Mathieu
Dans un contexte national sans pareil de répression syndicale (8 de Goodyear, Air France, 6 de Haguenau...), la SNCF a engagé fin juin 2016 des procédures de radiation (licenciement) à l'encontre de 2 conducteurs de trains : Christophe, militant actif, et Mathieu, délégué du personnel (SUD Rail), pour des faits non avérés survenus pendant qu'ils étaient en grève. Christophe a reçu la notification de sa radiation début octobre et a demandé une grâce de la part du Président Directeur Général de la SNCF, Guillaume PEPY, restée pour le moment sans suite. Mathieu "bénéficie" pour sa part de la procédure spéciale de radiation car il est représentant du personnel. Comme attendu, le Comité d'Entreprise réuni le 25 octobre a voté contre sa radiation et l'inspection du travail doit rendre son avis. La Direction de la SNCF Alsace a déjà fait savoir qu'elle ira jusqu'à solliciter les services du Ministère pour valider ladite radiation. Ces procédures sont injustes et totalement disproportionnées (accusations non avérées, pouvoir disciplinaire qui ne s'applique normalement pas lorsque les agents sont en grève... pour obtenir plus d'informations à ce sujet : http://sudrailstrasbourg.fr/spip.php?article194 et montrent la volonté de la SNCF de paralyser les militants des syndicats de lutte. Outre les problématiques syndicales ou politiques, ce sont les vies de 2 hommes et de leur famille qui doivent être prises en compte ! Merci de signer pour que Monsieur Guillaume PEPY, Président Directeur Général de la SNCF, accorde sa grâce à Christophe pour qu'il puisse être réintégré et pour qu'une fois la décision de l'inspection du travail rendue, Monsieur Jacques MAZARS, Directeur Régional de la SNCF Alsace, prenne la décision juste qui s'impose, à savoir l'annulation pure et simple de la procédure disciplinaire engagée contre Mathieu.
Petition to Government of Ghana
STOP THE INHUMANE TREATMENT OF GHANAIANS BY FOREIGNERS. CLOSE DOWN MARWAKO FAST FOOD LTD!!!
The people of Ghana are noted for their hospitality. They welcome almost every person warmly into their arms irrespective of nationality, race or creed. This has seen an exponential increase in the number of foreigners coming into our country either for trade of leisure. However, in recent times, there has been an increasing and alarming levels of some of those foreigners, particularly in the business community, attacking and treating fellow Ghanaians with utter indignity. For instance, in recent times, 1. We have heard of the Italian who chained a Ghanaian worker in the sun for supposed misconduct. 2. We have heard of the Chinese man who slapped a Ghanaian worker with hot pizza. 3. We have heard of many instances of beatings meted out to Ghanaian workers at Oda. 4. We have heard of the sexual abuse of female workers by foreign bosses in Tema. 5. And just this week, we have heard of another incident where a Ghanaian's face has been rubbed into hot blended pepper by a Lebanese supervisor at the Marwako Fast Food Ltd. My fellow Ghanaians, the incidence of such blatant abuses are uncalled for. They are Dehumanizing, Denigrating and Disrespectful of our being and existence as a people. I therefore call on you to BOYCOTT MARWAKO and sign this petition to be presented to the Government of Ghana for the following. 1. The police must probe, prosecute and make sure that the Lebanese who assaulted the workers faces the full rigors of the law. 2. The said foreigner should be deported after prosecution. 3. The restaurant should be closed down with immediate effect. IT IS OF OUR NATURAL RIGHT TO BE RESPECTED AS CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY. GHANA, 60 YEARS ON, NEED NOT ALLOW IT'S CITIZENS TO BE TREATED THUS. THANK YOU FOR SIGNING. Courage Kwasi Nobi firstname.lastname@example.org 0206 497 320 (Educator and Activist)

Give Corey the benefits and care he has earned!
My son was assaulted by a soldier breaking his neck. He was hit from behind because he didn’t want to get into the car with them. The Army says this is my son’s fault because if he had gotten in the car when he was told to, he wouldn’t have been hit breaking his neck. After breaking his neck the soldiers picked Corey up and placed him in the back of a compact car between two other soldiers. They had a Sgt and a paramedic meet them in the parking lot of the barracks where the paramedic evaluated my son and did not call an ambulance for him to stabilize him. It took about 3 hours for them to get Corey to the military hospital where they did not have a neurosurgeon. The Army refuses to transfer him to a WTU they refuse to start a medboard and they refuse to say this is in the line of duty. SOLDIERS did this to my son. SOLDIERS moved my son around and hauled him around in a car for hours with a broken neck. A Paramedic trained by the army looked at my son, documented that he was barely breathing, paralyzed, had low blood pressure and heart rate, and was in and out of consciousness. This paramedic had a responsibility to call an ambulance to stabilize my son’s spinal cord and administer oxygen, fluids, and medication for his heart rate and blood pressure. A paramedic had the responsibility to transfer my son to a hospital with a neurosurgeon on duty to stabilize my son. Due to the care and treatment he received at the hands of soldiers and a paramedic on post, my son suffered bleeding into the spinal cord as well as having bone fragments impinging on his spinal cord. He went from paraplegic to quadriplegic all while in he hospital. Now my son is not eligible for any grants for adaptive technology, home and vehicle modifications, transport to and from therapy, durable medical equipment, or home health care. He is not eligible because the Army refuses to take responsibility for their part in my son’s injuries. I cannot sue because of something called the Fares Doctrine. My son has suffered enough! For the rest of his life he will have to have someone help him with everyday tasks. He cannot even control his own bowel and bladder function. He is 23 years old. Help me get the benefits my son deserves!! I have 5 kids and have worked hard to get where I am. I am a RN who works at the VA hospital in our area and I am going to lose my job. My FMLA is up this month and I will have to return to work. They won’t even let me work part time so I can care for Corey. Without the benefits being withheld we will lose everything! I can’t leave him by himself and he has to go to therapy. I was told last week to apply for Medicaid. I shouldn’t have to. He is coveeed on my insurance and the army has some responsibility for the extent of his injuries. PLEASE help in any way you can!

Petition to President Reuven Rivlin, President of Israel
Immediate Release & Pardon of Sgt. Elor Azaria
As a former IDF soldier in the Golani Brigade, I am afraid for the safety of Israeli Citizens (and by extension American citizens and American interests in the region as well). I am afraid of the message this sends to young Israeli soldiers who are conscripted into the IDF at 18 years old. The message this verdict sends to these young, brave soldiers is "you can be convicted of a crime and go to jail for defending your country and killing a confirmed terrorist." It has been statistically proven that law enforcement and soldiers think twice before shooting if there is even a remote possibility their actions could be construed illegal (look at the crime rate in Chicago as a result of the “Ferguson Effect”). Israel needs to end "political correctness" and worry about protecting Israeli citizens and soldiers. Although I would NOT have acted in this manner, I fully comprehend the complexity of a "wartime scenario" and the raw emotions of seeing your brother-in-arms nearly killed by a TERRORIST. The justice system has spoken, but it is time for the Israeli leadership to send a clear message to our soldiers "WE HAVE YOUR BACK."

Justice for Justin
In the early hours of Thursday June 29th, 2017 Justin Phelps was pronounced dead at his home in West Warwick, RI of an accidental drug overdose. Although Justin did not make it, he was not alone. Justin's former fiancee', Natasha, would remain in the household until morning. Under the "Good Samaritan Act", Natasha could have contacted emergency services getting Justin the help needed to save his life while also freeing her of any and all responsibility of his overdose. Instead of saving his life, she proceeded to get high and "go to sleep." After investigation the police determined that Natasha had stayed with Justin's deceased body for a duration of at least 8 hours. Officers on scene stated that she was not at fault and allowed her to leave. Justin's sister Ashley, who resides in the adjoining condo had started attempting to contact her brother Wednesday evening as early as 6 pm, both his and Natasha's phones would only repeatedly send her to voicemail. There were approximately 28 calls that would be ignored by Natasha that evening, Ashley never spoke to her brother again. Sensing something was amiss, she went next door. Knocking loudly, trying to gain entry into the house, she only found herself locked out. Several other friends of Justin had also tried to contact him; all ignored by Natasha. For more than half of my life the Phelps family has been my family, despite having our occasional differences like families often do. I love them and it breaks my heart to see them going through this. It hurts to breathe when I realize that I'm not going to just wake up from this, that I'll never see Justin again. We will never see Justin again. This could have easily been prevented had Natasha simply answered a phone or unlocked a door. Two weeks prior to this incident; Justin had overdosed, rescue was called by Ashley and Justin was revived using narcan. Natasha was furious with Ashley for contacting and "involving" the police, even though it saved his life. During the investigation Thursday morning while questioning Natasha she told the police that she had been asleep. She went on to give them her phone with a newly deleted call log and an old phone that she claimed to be Justin's; having no missed calls. Ashley quickly pointed out that this was not her brother's phone and provided evidence of the ignored calls on her cellphone but the officers dismissed it. I know that nothing can bring Justin back to us. What I cannot accept is that fact that Natasha walked away from this. Why do we have the Good Samaritan Act if there is no penalty imposed if it's neglected? Especially when the neglect results in death? The fact is that Justin could be alive right now and the only reason he is not is because his girlfriend did not want to involve police. This is not right and what I'm asking for is simply this; Justice for Justin. I would like to see Natasha held at least partially accountable for her actions, or in this case her lack thereof. Perhaps if it was made a punishable crime to neglect the GSA, unfortunate events such as this could be avoided in the future. I cannot even fathom the pain and suffering his family is enduring at this time and it is sincerely my belief that no one should ever have to.

Justice For Fabe
We are respectfully requesting your support as we seek Justice for Fabian "Fabe" Smith. Fabian was murdered in the parking lot of a strip center around 2p on 02/19/2017. Fabian was murdered by Tyler Green, an ex coworker and someone he thought of as a "buddy". The murderer, Tyler, initially had a bond set at a mere $50,000. Despite aggravating circumstances and Tyler's alleged probation violation, he and his family are requesting the bond amount be lowered to $40, 000. We're begging for your signature and support as decreasing Tyler's bond and increasing his likelihood of release is a disservice to the victim, the victim's family, and the community as a whole. On the day of the offense, Tyler was caught on surveillance at several different locations dressed in a top hat and trench coat, including Jumpalooza ( an indoor playground for children and teens). We are pleading that Tyler's bond not be decreased at this time. Help us to be the voice for the victim!

A 17yr Baltimore boy arrested in 1984 sentenced to a max 25 yrs is still there 33yr later
In 1984 Duane Leach (Montese) was merely a few months of his 18 birthday when he found himself faced with an event that would change his life forever. Duane was thousands of miles from home in the company of much older men. The activities that would have been described less than honorable had taking place during this time. Duane made several attempts to disassociate himself with the activities of the older guys however, was threatened that harm would be bought to his family if he chose to leave. Some unfortunate occurrences took place and a few lives were lost. Admidily Duane had a gun in his position, along with several others although Duane’s gun was not the gun that matched the casings found near the dead bodies. Upon the other suspects own statement Duane was not the individual who shot and killed anyone that lost their lives. In fact the person who did admit to the killing of those individuals received a better sentence because he was older, had private legal council and the support of his mother. Duane did not have any parental involvement or support and was issued a public defender. Duane’s codefendent has been released for serveral years and has admitted so some inaccuracies regarding Duane’s arrest and involvement . It has now been 33 yrs in which Duane has been incarcerated in Florida state prison system. He has not been in any trouble for the past several years and has met his required sentence of 25 years. Back in 1990 or so Duane had an altercation with a correctional officer and was charged with that offense. Each time Duane goes for parole this 28 yr old incident still arrises . Duane has participated in several programs and has acquired several trades. He has a 33 year old daughter and two grand children of which he has never meant. The goal is to have this case reveiwed with the intentions of releasing Mr. Leach . He has family, love and support waiting on him. He has remained very close with his family over the years, one of the hardest task is the distance between Maryland and Florida. This type of hardship has caused visits to be less frequent. I am Looking to see support for the release of Duane Leach.
