Petition to Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kılıç
Sign: Justice for Dog with Ears Cut Off for Selfies
In a now-viral image circulating throughout Turkish social media, two young men pose proudly next to a cowering dog with bloody stumps for ears, each man holding what appears to be a dog ear in his hand. According to Turkish news, the pair are suspected to be involved in dogfighting, and were reportedly punishing one of their losing dogs. The Turkish justice system has now let the men off with a fine of just over what is equivalent to $1,000 U.S. dollars. And no jail time. This lax punishment is not acceptable for inflicting such reprehensible harm on an animal. These men's shockingly light sentence is not even close to proportional to the pain and suffering they senselessly inflicted on an innocent animal — let alone the multiple dogs presumably forced to tear each other to shreds in fights staged for human entertainment. Animals are not toys. They are not property. They have thoughts and feelings, as backed up by research demonstrating that dogs are just as sentient as a human child. What’s more, cruelty to animals is irrefutably linked to cruelty to human beings. This incident of grossly inhumane treatment highlights the urgent need for the Turkish government to revisit their animal cruelty laws. Please sign this petition now to call on Turkey's Ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kılıç, to advocate for stronger punishment for animal abuse. Dogs like this deserve justice, and animal torture must be treated like the serious crime that it truly is.
Petition to Filipino People
18 Million Signatures a PLEA for Pres. Rodrigo Duterte's Peaceful Resignation and Removal
Ferdinand Marcos, a former Philippine President who is also known as plunderer and former dictator. Under his command and in his regime, the Philippines suffered casualties (according to local and international news), because anyone who is against the Marcoses, and his minions, that time were tortured and brutally killed (according to Martial Law victims). Refer to: http://www.rappler.com/views/imho/106827-martial-law-stories-hear http://www.rappler.com/nation/121365-torture-martial-law-marcos-regime http://www.rappler.com/newsbreak/iq/142723-martial-law-declaration-philippines http://www.bworldonline.com/content.php?section=Opinion&title=a-heroes&8217-cemetery-and-martial-law&id=131883 http://www.wsj.com/articles/strongmans-legacy-stirs-passions-in-the-philippines-1472856476 Now, President Rodrigo Duterte allowed and supported the burial of the former dictator, Ferdinand Marcos in the National Hero's Cemetery (Philippines). President Duterte also has a group who had given their wholehearted support despite the fact that he promotes bloodshed on the streets (according to his TV interviews caught by international press/media), accompanied with his cruel tongue (as seen on the news today, which is also being viewed as his style of talking), to rid off evil doers. But the fact is, this is not true justice. We want to get rid of criminals but we also want justice to be served to the real criminals, not someone who they pick off the streets and pin the crime to. Refer to: http://interaksyon.com/article/130413/human-rights-defenders-to-duterte-stop-bloodshed-of-suspected-criminals-drug-offenders http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3708155/Philippines-President-Rodrigo-Duterte-s-war-illegal-drugs-killed-300-people.html http://globaljournalist.org/2016/10/philippines-press-leader-speaks-bloodshed/ Facts have been presented and available through social media (and news both local and international), especially Facebook about the squabble between who is yellow or who supports the current president. This is not a good representation of the true Filipino spirit. We need to sort out that there should be no sides at all but only the sides of either: TRUTH or FALSEHOOD. The Philippines should decide for themselves what is really the TRUTH behind the mess in our government and in our society. We keep on arguing with each other here in the Philippines but the only thing that would settle this is a real unbiased vote. We need to know what is the real score behind the arguments, behind the biases, behind the messed up society today. We can't fight the Supreme Court's judgement to let a former dictator be laid to rest at the National Hero's Cemetery in the Philippines (Libingan ng mga Bayani sa Pilipinas). But we can show if the Philippines is still 'worth dying for' by the heroes of this land, like those that risked their lives for our freedom from bondage, from cruelty, from injustices and all unlawful acts of those power hungry politicians, judiciary and all people who had been blinded by uncalled for anger and biased opinions of the crowd. I urge, all Filipino people to please sign this petition in the hopes of getting the truth to come out of whether or not President Duterte should remain in power.
Petition to Daewoo
Daewoo:犬猫の惨殺を禁止に! Help us to end abhorrent cruelty and suffering of dogs in your country!
韓国での犬猫の肉産業を根絶するためにDaewoo大宇に協力を仰ぎます！ご協力をお願いいたします！！ 以下は大宇宛ての請願書です。 Daewoo グループ殿： 御社は“fierce commitment to innovation”「革新への熱い約束」という言葉を唱えています。 革新とは：『特に新しい方法や考え方によって、確立されているものに変化をもたらす』事です。 とても優れた哲学であり、私達が望むものでもあります。 御社の母国は韓国であり、その国の人々が確立した考えをひっくり返すためにご協力いただきたいと思います。韓国で明けても暮れても行われている犬と猫の肉取引きは、その全ての工程において不道徳で、ショッキングな残虐行為です。それを終わらせる為に御社が全く新しい「感情」を発表し御社の母国とその人々に変化をもたらすことを私達は待ち望んでいます。 韓国は、国の需要に応じるために猫と犬を商業的に飼育する世界でも唯一の国です。そして哀れな動物に対する残虐行為はぞっとするものです。この動物達が味わう苦しみは計り知れません。 小さな裏庭企業から巨大な繁殖施設まで何千もの飼育場があり、何千もの動物が非人道的で哀れな扱いで飼育されています。犬は飢えと恐怖に怯えながら、狭くて不潔なオリに閉じ込められています。そして、わざと時間をかけてゆっくりと残忍な方法による死を最後に強要されるのです。これら全ての行為は違法であり、どのような人間の基準に照らし合わせてみても到底受け入れることはできません。 韓国国内でも熱心で思いやりのある人々は、この極悪行為を禁止するようにと長年に渡り政府に依頼してきましたが、韓国政府はこの問題について未だに舵を握ってくれてはおりません。世界で主要な経済大国であり、最高水準の教育レベルを誇り、文化国家である韓国で21世紀の未だにこのような卑劣な残虐行為を犯しているということはとても信じがたいことです。 犬肉取引は20億ドルの産業です。しかし、このおぞましい産業が止められなければ、韓国は国際社会において輸出収益の減少と信用の低下を招く恐れがあります。 そして、韓国が思いやりのある国として真に文化的な国々に加わり、世界から尊重されたいのであれば、動物保護法を強化し、それを行使することが重要です。 御社は韓国トップクラスの企業です。世界中に支店を持ち、御社の家電製品はどこでも目にします。 御社にはこの残忍極まりない状況を変える力があります。影響力も財力もある御社がこの極悪行為を止めるために何の行動もおこしていない事は驚きであり、恥ずべき事です。 他の韓国企業と同様に、御社は主に輸出市場に重きを置いていますが、御社が動物の権利と福祉について今どのように行動するかによって、御社のサポートを続けるか否かを見極めようとする愛犬家は世界中に沢山おります。自社製品である家電ブランドのイメージ落としたいとはお思いにならないでしょう。 韓国の代表企業としてこの問題を解決に導く道徳的責任があります。世界中の消費者が「信頼できる」、正しい選択をする、「質の高い」企業であることを示すためにこのおぞましい犬猫の肉取引を永久にやめるように韓国政府に要請して頂くことを嘆願いたします。 ピョンチャンで開催される冬季オリンピックを目前に控え、世界中が韓国に注目している今こそ犬肉や猫肉の食用消費に終止符を打つべき時です。 ----------------------------------------------------------------- Short link for this petition: https://goo.gl/TpLhq4 English petition: https://www.change.org/p/daewoo-daewoo-help-us-to-end-the-abhorrent-cruelty-and-suffering-of-cats-and-dogs-in-your-country
Petition to CEO Yang-Ho Cho, Korean Airlines
Korean Air:Help us to end the abhorrent cruelty & suffering of cats & dogs in your country
Korean Air: Help us to end the abhorrent cruelty and suffering of cats and dogs in your country! To the Korean Air Group, Korean Air is a leading airline, which recognises that their advancement “would not have been achievable without the support and encouragement” of its customers. Therefore, it stands to reason that it is of great importance that these same customers, and many prospective ones, will continue to retain a positive image of your company. Equally important must be the positive image of your country, South Korea, which will be hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics, in Pyeongchang - an event which your own Chairman and CEO, Mr Yang Ho Cho, has significant personal involvement in. However, across the globe, people are stating that they will not buy Korean goods or use Korean services, because of the shocking and brutal practices that are routinely being carried out within all parts of Korea’s abhorrent dog and cat meat trades. Internationally, these billion dollar trades - and their associated cruelty - have become common knowledge; this does nothing to further Mr Cho’s Vision of “Korea’s progressive reputation around the world”. South Korea is the only country in the world which commercially farms dogs for consumption. Each year, many millions of animals are being bred and raised in large and ‘backyard’ farms all over your country; and they are kept with absolutely no regard for any animal welfare: in cramped, filthy, barren cages, exposed to all elements - living with unending fear and pain. Finally, after all of this suffering, and because of ignorant Korean beliefs, these animals are condemned to hideous deaths by horrendous and deliberately prolonged methods of slaughter: inhumane and brutal methods, which are unnecessary, unacceptable, and illegal. Mr Cho states that his “dedication and leadership extends beyond business to education”; these ignorant Korean beliefs can be changed, and these brutal methods can be stopped completely through this vital education. And, despite continuous pleas, even from dedicated citizens within your own country, your Government does nothing to end this animal abuse - or even to monitor or enforce its own laws. This is not the action of a 21stCentury, major economic world power, with a leading education system; this is not the action of a civilized nation. This is a shameful denial of immoral behaviour that is rife within their society. Korean Air, you must carry on the dedicated commitment to the “advancement of the Korean People” shown by the late Mr Choong Hoon Cho, the Founder of your Company, by helping to bring an end to this suffering and cruelty. You must stand up for what is right: we implore you to urge your government to act now by strengthening and enforcing its animal protection laws, and by permanently banning the consumption of dog and cat meat. https://www.koreanair.com/global/en.html
Petition to Louisiana Parole Board
Keep James D. Hereford II in Angola!
His name is James D. Hereford, on May 20, 1986, Hereford brutality beat and shot the victim 11 times and disposed the body of Margaret Nowell Scott in a ditch near the bayou at the end of Nelson Road in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Margaret was the mother of three beautiful little girls, and because of this man, these three girls grew up with only the few memories and pictures of their beautiful mother. Now the State of Louisiana has sent a letter to the family stating that James D. Hereford II: Doc # 115393 DOB 9/8/1964 has requested a commutation of sentence. His hearing is on April 12, 2017. It is wrong to allow a cold blooded killer to even attempt to be released on parole for the sake of any reason at all; especially when his case file clearly reads that he will not be able to not be granted a suspension of sentence, probation, or parole! Hereford's family is requesting and pushing for his parole hearing and release. In the unfortunate event that Hereford is released from a maximum security prison in Louisiana(Angola), he would be living right here in Lake Charles, LA, where the family of the victim are from, and we would have a cold blooded killer loose on the streets to only do it over again. We have enough violence and crime on the streets of our community as it is. Not only that, but this entire family would be in great danger if this man is released from prison where he was originally sentence life, with no parole. For the sake of this family, and all of the safety for the people of our city, I am asking you to please sign this petition so our voices can be heard! I've listed in this petition all of the information you will need to write to the Louisiana Parole Board to let them know we are speaking for the victims, and he is not speaking for himself! We, as a community, will not allow another murderer on the streets of Lake Charles, LA! To read the case file for Hereford, click on this link: https://casetext.com/case/state-v-hereford Louisiana Parole Board Contact Information: You can email the Parole Board at: firstname.lastname@example.org You can also send a letter to: Louisiana Parole Board PO Box 94304 Baton Rouge, LA 70804-9304 Please be sure you include his full name, DOB, and DOC# when emailing or writing the Louisiana Parole Board. James D. Hereford DOB 9/8/1964 DOC# 115393
Petition to Facebook , Facebook
Remove Sexist, Racist, and Other Abusive Content (Including Abusive Pages, Photos, and Comments)
Pages such as "Women bringing you Sandwiches" and "Keep Ya Pimp Hand Strong" clearly violate Facebook's TOS (See https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards). Both pages "[target] based on gender" and one explicity advocates domestic violence against women. Examples of racist pages include "Lazar Kaganovich" (the sole purpose of which is to attack the USSR official because of his Jewish ethnicity) and "N***as be like" as well as its compatriot "N***as/B****es Be Like." (which is both racist and sexist). Why Facebook refuses to remove these pages is beyond me. Why Facebook also refuses to remove other hateful content (such as abusive photos and comments) is beyond me.
Petition to Steve Benjamin, Cheryl Harris
Yesterday (3/21/2017) at lunch at Dreher High School, A White Male walked behind a student and punched him. This resulted in the student having a concussion, so the male got suspended for 3 days. But, about two weeks ago Antonio Duckson (A Black male) was walking out of school after hours and cussed, this resulted in a day of In School Suspension and a 5 day suspension. Now keep in mind the Male gave someone a concussion, but just got a 3 day suspension. Antonio cussed and got a 5 day suspension with a day of In School Suspension. I think that if the Male were black that he would have had a more severe punishment, but he only got a 3 day suspension. Most of all just think that all students should be treated equally. I am not looking for the Male to have a further punishment, I solely just wanted to bring awareness of the situation.
