Petition to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook

Hold Facebook to account #TalkToUsMark

In the last few days it has been uncovered that the personal data of 50 million ordinary people on Facebook was used to sway the US elections in 2016. Cambridge Analytica’s use of this data without permission or knowledge has dominated the headlines. I’m a big fan of Facebook, I use it everyday to share information and connect with friends and family near and far. My closest friends even poke fun at me for ‘completing the Facebook game’, having maxed out the number of connections allowed! I do not doubt the huge value Facebook has given the world. That’s why I’m so worried - we ARE Facebook. And I’m not alone: The hashtag #deletefacebook has even trended on Twitter! Authorities in the United States and Europe have called for Mark Zuckerberg to face them; Cambridge Analytica’s CEO has been suspended; Facebook investors have sued the company, and; the platform has lost US$60bn in market value so far. Governments and the market has responded. How should we, as citizens, respond? As an avid user, my main question is: Can I still trust Facebook to protect my data? And as a citizen, my main question is: how has this data sharing impacted elections around the world? Therefore, this petition calls for two simple things: We call for Mark Zuckerberg to testify to the UK Parliament and US Congress to answer these urgent questions, and; We call for Facebook to investigate and list publicly any other violations of our data by other third parties. We want to give Mark Zuckerberg an opportunity to calm our nerves, and act upon Facebook’s community values of being open, inclusive, transparent, and trustworthy. The ball is now in his court. I hope you join me in signing the petition. Kind regards, Alvin CarpioCEO, The Fourth Group

Petition to Theresa May MP, Richard Graham MP, UK Parliament, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Richard Johnson headteacher, Severn Vale School, Alex chalk, Damian Hinds

BAN homework in secondary school around England and the rest of the United Kingdom

They should ban homework in England in secondary schools because it is the most important years to be studying at school to get GCSE but if you have homework all the time you are missing out on learning. Plus you can spend hours doing the pieces of homeworks and the teachers might not mark them in which you don't know whether you are improving. Plus by doing no homework it would give the students more time to learn and have more time to be able to do stuff they enjoy like hobbies. And it should be up to kids how they revise. And the teachers to prepare the lessons instead of handing homework out in which it could improve learning because it wouldn't take up the time. And if you do your homework you never have time to go out with friends or family because they set to much homework and students go to school about 30 hours a week and spend more hours doing homework they should be able to relax there brains and having a break not doing work all the time.what happens if you win? Well it would stop homework which would give more time to students to do what they want like sports or there hobbies and socialising with other people like friends.and cause teachers can use the time to prepare the lessons instead of handing out homework in which student might not know what to do. and also they don’t give the help student need because they are interested in homework not the pupils progress and whether they are understanding the knowledge!  You spend hours doing it and the teachers don’t mark it which means that time you can be spending with your friends and family also they don’t realise that you only stay a kid for not long so you want to enjoy it. and homework does not help you get a GCSE so the teachers can help you more and stop giving detentions and help people to achieve and learn what they need  they never consult the parents or students and can set how much homework they want which it isn’t fair and this causes health problems because you are not doing fun things like hobbies  a number of health problems are: .heart problems  .anxiety  And another thing is schools set all this homework but then they don’t think socialising or spending time with your family is important like going to beaches so you have memories as you are only young for not long and school do not look at this and they set loads of homework way to much over the weekends but they don’t realise that you too want a break and spend time with family and friends and homework does not help you and it causes health problems  And even teachers get breaks over the weekends and go places so they need to take in consideration of students and they should just ban it so teachers can teach better and homework don’t help cause teachers harlf the time don’t even mark it! ALL HOMEWORK DOES IS CAUSE UNNACESSARY STRESS!!!   plus when you are worried about GCSE it does not help and can lead to anxiety and other mental health problems  Homework was introduced as a punishment but now generations are taking it too far and giving how much they want out and it’s not having an detrimental impact on them but the younger generations who will become successful but Homework is getting in the way  achieving to ban homework would mean a lot of things including more time to revise necessary stuff which will achive you good GCSE which homework doesnt !!!!! and you would also have more time to do sports you enjoy or hobbies and it will create a better environment and atmosphere at school as children should enjoy school but when you got that extra pressure of homework it does not help! there is also proof that it doesn’t help such as Finland they have no homework and they got better education including GCSE    HOMEWORK IS UNHEATHY and stops you from socialising and doing revision, revision classes  cause some student might not be able to do revision classes after school as the amount of pressure to do homework from the school cause student know if they don’t do it they get detentions etc
