Petition to Rt Hon Theresa May MP
This injustice must be put right for a Falklands War hero.
Corporal Stewart McLaughlin served in B Company, Third Battalion, The Parachute Regiment and was killed during the battle for Mount Longdon in the Falklands War. He was a key figure in the Company’s attack, leading and supporting numerous assaults on the enemy. His supreme personal bravery and exemplary leadership was noticed by many during the battle and has consistently been acknowledged by the comrades who fought alongside him, by many senior military officers and by the Prime Minister, Theresa May. Despite this, he has never been formally recognised for his actions which contributed significantly to the victory achieved by the battalion. We call on the government to amend the Armed Forces Awards system to enable retrospective awards to be made in exceptional circumstances and to formally recognise Cpl McLaughlin for his outstanding gallantry and leadership.

Bring Busch Light to our Troops Overseas!
Attention all Busch Light connoisseurs, you will be devastated to know that our troops stationed overseas have no access to one of America's favorite beers. Busch light is the 9th most Popular Beer in America yet it is not sold at any overseas US Military installation. Yet 13 Beers which are less popular in America are all sold on every Military Base overseas. Even after numerous request to AAFES to stock it or even special order it. Please help support the troops by signing and sharing this petiton so we can bring them "The People's Lager" in time for the festive season! It wouldn't be the Holidays without a "Busssssscchhhh"

Pictures of Rupert Grint wearing military uniform as fashion to be removed from internet
I have recently found a picture on the internet which disgusts me. As you know Royal Marines protect our country and have to go through extensive training to become Royal Marines. When searching on the web I came across an image of an actor called Rupert Grint (some may better know him as Ronald Weasley from Harry Potter), wearing military uniform or clothing that resembles military uniform as a fashion piece. I find it revolting how he can have so little respect for the Royal Marines and in turn our countries military. I am petitioning to get this photo taken down from everywhere and appropriate action to be taken against him. As it is still a crime in the UK for a civilian to wear a uniform of the armed forces without authorization under the Uniforms Act 1894.

Free the 6 British Veterans from Indian jail #CHENNAI6
5 Years rigorous imprisonment in a Indian Jail is the Sentence for 6 of our Brave British Veterans In 2013 we started a petition after six British ex-soldiers were wrongly arrested and imprisoned without charge for straying into Indian waters without permission & carrying illegal weapons without licence by Indian authorities while working to protect merchant seaman in some of the most dangerous seas in the world. After spending 9 months in prison and a charge finally being filed against them 3 months in, they were released on bail, and began to fight to prove their innocence, which they done successfully and all charges were dropped in July 2014 leaving them free to return home. Unfortunately this was not the case. The Indian authorities held their passports and documents stopping them from returning home to their loved ones and denying their freedom. The Indian Q Branch police lodged an appeal to have their charges re-instated when a full trial was ordered by the Supreme Court. After a long and mentally torturing wait the trial began in September 2015 in the Magistrates court of the port where they were first arrested. On the 11th of January 2016 our hearts sank, our brothers, husbands, Sons, and fathers had been given a Guilty verdict and sentence to 5 years rigorous imprisonment. Not one of us or the people involved could have saw this verdict coming. All the evidence to prove their innocence was submitted in court, the trial had gone in their favour from day one, and most importantly they were innocent! The devastation and anguish this has caused us, the families is huge. It has left us crushed and with little hope. We know have no communication with the men and We don’t know who or where to turn to. This is why we are asking you to sign our petition, to Free our men and end this miscarriage of justice. We understand fully that one country cannot intervene in another’s judicial process, But when innocent men are being prosecuted for a crime they have not committed, then they should have a obligation to protect the human rights and freedom of these men and have them released and brought home. These men devoted their lives protecting others. They fought for the British government now the British government must fight for them. https://www.justgiving.com/freesgo6 Text FSGO66 £1 to 70070 if you wish to donate to our fund

Memorial for victims of Agent Orange
I would like a memorial to be built to commemorate the countless innocent lives lost or ruined by disability from the use of Agent Orange in Vietnam. * People who were still unborn up to decades after the end of the war are sick and dying from Agent Orange, in addition to the terrible damage done to the environment. I want this memorial to stand as a reminder of the cost of chemical warfare forevermore. Why is this important? American veterans children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren, as well as the Vietnamese people in the same generations, have been born with a vast variety of birth defects and also suffer far higher rates of cancer. Agent Orange corrupts the DNA for five generations from first contact. We are victims of war who have gone unrecognised, from the grandchild of an American soldier who suffered terribly and died of cancer, the child of a soldier with no quality of life from birth defects, and the many Vietnamese who have suffered terribly, none of whom were involved in the Vietnam War willingly. In addition, the toll taken on the environment from the use of Agent Orange is almost impossible to calculate. Innocent humans and the earth itself have been poisoned by this act of chemical warfare. We deserve recognition. * For all areas of this planet where AO was used, please see its Wikipedia entry (Petition created by Erin Norman)
