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.

Give Britain's last surviving Dambuster hero a knighthood
I'm Carol Vorderman MBE, TV presenter and Honorary Ambassador for the RAF Air Cadets. Last year I met 95-year-old George "Johnny" Johnson - Britain's last surviving hero from the Dambusters raid on Nazi Germany. I was overwhelmed and humbled by his achievements and what he has done for this country. That's why many of us were extremely disappointed that, in spite of being nominated, he was overlooked in this year's New Year Honours list. I can't think of anyone who deserves a knighthood more than Johnny. There were many fine people who received awards, but I believe they would all agree that Johnny deserves one too. He is an incredible man who volunteered for one of the most dangerous missions during World War II. And since then he has been a teacher, a counsellor, endlessly supported young people and raised huge amounts for charity. Johnny Johnson has devoted his entire life to helping other people. Please sign this petition to get Johnny the recognition he deserves. Read Johnny's incredible story in The Sun or click here.

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

Petition to Donald Trump
Ban cisgender people from serving in the US military
On July 26, 2017, President Donald Trump announced that transgender individuals are to be banned from serving in any capacity in the US military, citing reasons of medical costs and unspecified 'disruption'. We call on the President to go a step further: to also ban any cisgender individuals from serving. It's discriminatory and unfair that transgender people aren't able to access the same opportunities in the American war machine as everybody else. The logical step is to extend the ban on trans service members to cover cis service members as well. This will aid the reasons that President Trump lists in his original tweets: The US military spends five times as much on viagra as it does on trans healthcare. Banning cis service members would cut this cost, and all other medical costs, to zero. This would save over $50bn a year. The US military is one of the most disruptive forces in the world, being currently deployed in over 150 countries. It has helped destroy nations, install dictators who act in the business interests of the United States, and maim innocent civilians using high-tech remote weaponry. Extending the trans service ban to also cover cisgender individuals would resolve this disruption and allow peace to grow in the conflict-ridden areas of the world. It is for these reasons that we demand that the President extend the trans military ban to a total military ban, by also banning cisgender people from serving. It's the most effective thing Donald Trump could do to reduce inequality and discrimination in the US and all over the world.
