Petition to EU Scientific Review Group Director General Daniel Calleja
Stop the EU again allows Zambian elephant trophy hunt products to be imported
Animal protection campaigners are outraged after the EU's Scientific Review Group reversed an earlier decision to suspend elephant trophy imports from Zambia, according to a report in the Mirror. Elephant trophies from Zambia had been stopped in April after concerns that population levels were dangerously low. However, the Zambian government claimed an aerial survey suggested there are now 33,000 elephants in the country, which lead to the EU changing its position. Conservationists strongly dispute the population estimates. It has been estimated that elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. An estimated 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000. remaining. The situation for the African elephant is dire - and the EU is contributing to its demise by allowing imports. Will you join me in urging the EU’s Scientific Review Group to maintain its position to end elephant trophy imports from Zambia? Please sign and share the petition. Dear Director-General Calleja, I am calling on the EU Scientific Review Group to reinstate a ban on elephant trophy imports from Zambia. It has been estimated that elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. An estimated 100 African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000. remaining. [Your comments here] There is no scientific justification for allowing trophy imports. I urge you to stop these elephant trophies from entering the EU.

Petition to end the cruel treatment of elephants in India - by Save The Asian Elephants
Above: a baby elephant beaten to the ground in the "training" process of pajan. http://stae.org Young elephants are snatched from their forest homes to supply tourist attractions, temples and festivals. Capture from the wild often entails slaughtering the mothers and other herd members who attempt to protect their young. PAJAN – THE BRUTAL ‘BREAKING IN’ PROCESSThe captured calves are isolated and then forced into a pen and tied with ropes to prevent them moving. They are deprived of water, food and sleep. Terrified, they are brutally, often fatally, beaten with rods, chains or bullhooks (a rod with sharp metal hooks at the striking end) and stabbed with knives and nails. This practice – “pajan” – is designed to break their spirits and brutalise them into submission. We respectfully urge:Narendra Modi to end pajan and ensure the proper treatment of captive elephants. These magnificent creatures should either be released into the forests or kept in genuine sanctuaries. David Cameron to urgently fulfil his Government’s Manifesto commitment to “support the Indian Government in its efforts to protect the Asian elephant”. The Association of British Travel Agents to press its members to remove elephant attractions from their itinerary in India and the rest of Asia. Only visits to genuine sanctuaries and wildlife reserves where tourists observe elephants at a respectful distance (and do not ride them) should be permitted. STAE asks for your signature to this petition as we need maximum visible support as we enter crucial meetings with the UK Foreign Office and the UK tourism industry.

Petition to Theresa May MP
Reverse the government's decision to give the go ahead for a puppy farm in Hull, created with the purpose of providing beagle puppies to laboratories for animal testing!
The government have just given the go ahead for a puppy farm in Hull to supply animals to laboratories for testing. These beautiful and loving animals will never know love or compassion, just pain, suffering and neglect! It's WRONG and CRUEL!!!! But quite apart from the suffering of innocent dogs, these experiments are now proven to also delay and prevent the arrival of effective treatments and cures for human patients. MPs are now signing EDM 400, calling for a thorough science hearing to prove that such 19th century obsolete science must immediately stop, for all our sakes.
Petition to Council of the European Union, European Commission
EU - Offer European Citizenship to UK citizens
We are European citizens, but our country has voted to strip us of our citizenship. Since 1993, British citizens have been European citizens, living under the laws and support of the European Union. For many of us, this EU citizenship is a birthright. Britain has just voted in a referendum to leave the EU, stripping all UK citizens of their EU citizenship. Those of us who voted to Remain in the EU membership referendum are left without recourse, unable to retain our EU citizenship if we wish to stay a part of this great continental project, to travel and work together in a connected Europe. This is deeply unjust. We call on the European Union and the member states of the EU to offer a means for UK citizens to retain their European citizenship. This may take the form of a European Passport, or a fast-track to citizenship of a nation within the EU. We are proud European citizens. We have supported and been supported by the EU for decades, and we fought to Remain in Europe. Please offer a way for us to stay. #WeVotedRemain
Petition to Theresa May MP
Teresa May to divulge the location of the magic money tree.
During the election campaign a nurse complained to Amber Rudd that she needed more pay. Her reply? She stated that there is 'no magic money tree'. Given that the Prime Minister has been able to find billions to pay the DUP, despite austerity, one can only surmise there is indeed a magic money tree. If so we, the undersigned, demand that the location of the magic money tree is divulged to the public. photo caption: Intelligence suggests T.May and the bin emptier have just been to make a withdrawal. Is the UK money tree in a tax haven? Like Amber's cash? Tell us, o sugar-hating zombie witch queen! Please comment below and share!
Petition to DEFRA, The Government
Save our homes from the ravages of the sea.
We are a small community of homeowners, of all ages, living in 22 homes which are perilously close to the cliff edge at Skipsea Sands , just 12miles south of Bridlington on the unprotected East Yorkshire Coast. When we purchased our properties we were advised by the local council that we would have between 50 to 70 years before any action would need to be taken to defend our properties from the sea. That was in 1990 to 2000 but because of accelerated erosion caused by Climate Change and by Extraction of Sand and Gravel from Bridlington Bay( Bridlington town to the River Humber Estuary).Because of the accelerated loss of our land we estimate that we have less than 4 years left before we face eviction by the local council. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council will say that our properties are unsafe for habitation being perilously close to the cliff edge. The Government will not provide any form of sea defences to safeguard our properties and refuse to let any owner protect their own property. All the properties have been built with full planning permission and fully compliant with building regulations but we are being neglected and victimised by the lack of any help from the government. Some residents have lived here for over 30 years and have paid full council tax and have received nothing to help protect our properties. All our properties are in a line parallel to the cliff edge and when a property is within 9.36 metres from the cliff edge then each owner will be issued with a notice for eviction without any form of compensation whatsoever. Other coastal dwellers in the UK enjoy their properties knowing that they are safe from losing their homes to the sea or by flooding because they have sea defences and sea walls which are paid for and maintained by the government using money provided by the tax system. Also dwellers who have purchased their properties on flood plains are recieving assistance from the government in a variety of ways including cash help and better flood defences to help safeguard their homes! So why are we being discriminated against and not given any protection from the sea? Why are we prevented from having sea defence protection or any compensation or real assistance to enable us to stay in our properties? Please support our citizen rights to have help provided by the government to safeguard our homes and help provide continuity of our lives by initially providing and maintaining sea defences. Please sign our petition and ask your friends and relatives to support us by adding their names.We will be extremely grateful for your help.
Petition to United Nations Security Council
Impose Financial and Military Sanctions on Israel for War Crimes
When will the United Nations apply international laws against israel? When will the same law makers who readily impose financial and military sanctions on African, Arab and Asian Nations without thought - do the same to israel? Why are these laws and sanctions applied? Why are you blind when it comes to israels ethnic cleansing and aparthied? To stop this continuing murder of Palestinian people and the continuing "wars" and collective punishment. Stop applying the western military strategies of internal regime change by making the lives of everyday people hell, killing their children, their elderly and their weak. Israel is not the victim it is the perpetrator of war many crimes. United Nations turning a blind eye just demostrates the one sided global Political structure and this is not acceptable. ACT NOW for a lasting peace in the region.
Petition to Theresa May MP, Jeremy Corbyn MP
Stop the Conservative party forming a minority government based on the deal with the DUP
The recent deal formed between the conservative government and the DUP, has been done so the Conservative party can form a minority party and cling on to power. This is NOT in the national interest, and the method of acquiring this ability to form an government can be construed as a form of bribery. The Conservative government have essentially given the DUP an extra £1-billion, purely so they can form a government. This is completely unacceptable, unethical and undermimes the principle of democracy. Steps need to be taken so the Conservative government cannot buy there way in to power, and a government must be formed based on the national interest.
