Petition to UK Parliament, Prime Minister Boris Johnson
Don’t shut down Parliament! #StopTheCoup
Breaking news: The Government is asking the Queen to suspend Parliament in September. With the Brexit deadline around the corner, it means MPs won’t have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit or scrutinise the Government at one of the most critical times in our country’s history. This is an outrage and undermines the very idea of democracy. With just a few weeks before Brexit, we need politicians in Parliament, doing their jobs to make sure we leave the European Union in the best possible way for the sake of future generations. As a young person, it feels like my future is being played with. But the future of our country isn’t a political game. I’m looking to our politicians to make sure they make decisions which have been properly thought through and debated. That’s why I’m calling for Boris Johnson not to suspend Parliament to ram through an undemocratic Brexit, which will do nothing to provide closure and bring the country back together. This is the time for MPs to showcase bold and decisive leadership. Please help me by signing this petition! #StoptheCoup
Petition to Bernie Sanders
BOYCOTT US SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS INTERFERENCE IN INDIA’S INTERNAL ISSUE OF KASHMIR
US Senator Bernie Sanders recently made a statement about his ‘deep concern’ over the situation in Kashmir while addressing a huge gathering of Muslims at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America in Houston. He even asked the US government to speak up against the issue and support an “UN-backed peaceful resolution” which will be in favor of the people of Kashmir. By bringing up this issue, Sanders has meddled with India’s internal issue of Kashmir without much knowledge of the region’s conflicted history over all these years. Sign this petition to boycott US Senator Bernie Sanders campaign and stop him from using any such ignorant statements in the future, just for the sake of filling in some more votes. If you believe in a political system that is fair and respects the internal issues of a fellow nation, then here is your chance to do your bit and bring a change in the system. Background US Senator Bernie Sanders recently made a remark over the situation in Kashmir while addressing the Muslim community at the Islamic Society of North America’s annual convention in Houston. The 77 year old Democratic presidential contender stated that he was “deeply concerned” about the current state of affairs in Kashmir and even called for a strong take on the issue by the U.S. government. Bernie Sanders stressed on the fact that it is really important for the US government to “speak out loudly” on the issue and lend its support towards a peaceful solution backed by the UN authorities. Bernie Sanders particularly mentioned the lockdown of communication services in Kashmir over the past few days, and the pressing need to end it as soon as possible. The Islamic Society of North America in Houston is one of the biggest Muslim gatherings of the country, and such remarks from Bernie Sanders over the Kashmir issue at this event definitely seem to indicate a clear political interest. Bernie Sanders even re-imposed his political ideas by stating that the actions taken by the Indian government on the issue of Kashmir are not acceptable. The US Senator wants the US government to step into the matter, whilst supporting the international humanitarian law and order insisted by the UN. There is no doubt about the fact that it seems to be a part of Bernie Sanders agenda to win the votes of the Muslim community in Houston, by putting up a talk about the rights of the Kashmiri people in India. The Backstory Behind the Present Situation in Kashmir On August 5, 2019, the Indian government revoked Article 370 – the same article that gave a special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir in the Indian Constitution. After revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, the states have been divided into two Union Territories – that is Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. Since then, conflict has aggravated between India and Pakistan, attracting political interest on the issue from different countries all around the world. As far as the security curbs and lockdown of communication services in Jammu and Kashmir are concerned, it has all been exercised to restraint terrorist activities in the valley. As per the concerned authorities, all mobile phone services and security restrictions in the valley are expected to be restored and eased in the coming few days. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s views on a Third Party Mediation on the situation in Kashmir Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi clearly shunned away any possibility or interest in third party mediation on the issue of Kashmir. Defining this issue between India and Pakistan as bilateral in nature, Narendra Modi has left no scope for any kind of third party mediation on the topic. Even US President Donald Trump, who had recently shown an interest to mediate on the issue, was seen supporting this stance taken by the Indian Prime Minister. What makes Bernie Sanders interference in the Kashmir issue offensive? Bernie Sanders views and statements on the Kashmir issue are quite likely to be influenced by Faiz Shakir, a Muslim activist who also happens to manage Sanders Pakistani-American campaign. While Bernie Sanders has no clear picture about the history and issues that have surfaced in the Kashmir valley in all these years, his statement appears to be nothing more than an agenda to make pro-Pakistani views. Despite the fact that the Indian Prime Minister has clearly declared the revoking of Article 370 as an internal matter; Sanders statement about India’s action being unacceptable has come up as an offensive one. In fact, Bernie Sanders statement regarding the situation in Kashmir and his concern for it seem a dubious attempt to gain public interest on a burning issue. Just Another Political Campaign? By showing his “concern” for the situation in Kashmir, Democratic Presidential contendor Bernie Sanders is trying to do nothing but winning votes from a religious minority in the US. This is simply unfair and unacceptable, because by doing so he is using a country’s long-worn history of conflict for his own benefit in the form of a victory in his political campaign. As Bernie Sanders criticized the “crackdown (in Kashmir) in the name of security”, he also didn’t leave a chance to touch on the topic of hate crimes against the Muslim community in the US. This is a clear indication of a well planned political campaign that has been designed to win more and more votes from a huge community of voters in the US. So where on one hand Bernie Sanders is supposedly urging the US authorities to interfere in the Kashmir matter that largely concerns humanitarian rights, on the other hand he is trying to manipulate the sensibilities of a religious community for his own political gains. Sign this Petition By signing this petition, you will contribute to making a huge difference to an important cause and help stop many such political figures in the future from winning the sympathy card from voters.
Petition to António Guterres the Secretary-General of the United Nations
The UN must investigate the 3rd of June human rights violations in Sudan by the Military
On the 3 of June 2019, the Sudanese people's human right to peacefully protest was violated. At the sit in front of the Military headquarters in Sudan they were subject to an early morning raid by tens of heavily armed military vehicles and thousands of police and Military personnel. Live fire was used, tear gas attacks, lashings and also beatings. Reports say there is a number of unknown fatalities and many wounded. What happened must be investigated and the responsible parties brought to justice. We demand the United Nation establish an International commission of inquiry and investigate because the Sudanese people believe the Transitional Military Council is incapable of investigate itself.
Petition to United Nations
We demand the rejection of Andy Tsang's nomination to United Nations positions 反對聯合國委任曾偉雄
China has nominated former Hong Kong police chief Andy Tsang Wai-hung (曾偉雄) as the director-general of the United Nations Office at Vienna (UNOV) and the executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). These are key, high-ranking positions at the United Nations for combatting narcotics crimes. WE DEMAND THE REJECTION OF SUCH NOMINATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS ON THE GROUNDS OF TSANG'S CONDUCT AS POLICE CHIEF DURING THE UMBRELLA MOVEMENT IN 2014. Tsang was responsible for the brutal police crackdown during the moment. There has been plenty of evidence on serious police abuse of power in dealing with protesters, journalists, and even citizens. Evidence of police collusion on thug-initiated attacks during the movement had also come to light.
Petition to Jinja Municipal Council
Let's create a monthly car-free Bikealong to enjoy the Freedom of Cycling
The Bikealong is an initiative of Cycling out of Poverty Foundation that aims to promote urban cycling and sustainable transportation. On every last Sunday of the month we would like the Jinja Municipal Council to close down a part of Main Street and Gabula Road to motorised transport (as part of a larger 5 kilometer route) to give preference to cyclists and pedestrians. A car-free day that allows participants to follow a cordoned route that wends its way peacefully through the historic quarter and otherwise hectic center. It is supposed to give a festive atmosphere and a nice day without dodging traffic. The benefit to greater society is a monthly day with less traffic, a greener environment and room for activities like street yoga, cycling, skating, running and other fun things. A day where the Jinja people and the Jinja visitors can really enjoy the scenic and beauty of this city. Jinja, a city for everyone to enjoy!
Petition to Houses of parliment
Make it law to trigger an automatic byelection when an MP changes political party's
I believe that when MPs defect to different parties, their constituents should be automatically given the chance to re elect the MP, to show support for their move, or by the same token, elect another MP to show loyalty to a particular party. MPs are elected by the people, but often it is the political party that is chosen and NOT the individual MP. Changing the law will give the electorate a chance to hold these MPs to account, and more than that, it will keep the share of the vote in parliment vastly more accurate, which at this difficult time is extremely important.
Petition to Peabody housing trust, london mayor
Defending the Future of Holloway Prison Site
Like most boroughs in the UK, Islington has an acute shortage of council and social housing. The Holloway Prison site was sold by the Ministry of Justice to Peabody Housing Trust in 2018, using a loan of £41 million from the Mayor of London. We want to make sure that this formerly public land is used to produce the maximum amount of homes for social rents, a demand that should also be taken up by politicians in the forthcoming general election. Please support our Charter demands for the Holloway Site and help share the petition. The terms of the loan from the Mayor of London to be made public. A clear commitment from Peabody to consult at every stage and provide detailed plans of their proposals – with local residents and community groups to be represented in all discussions and on working groups and to have a formal role in governance of the project. All 60% “affordable homes” to be let at Islington Council social rent (target rents) levels with permanent tenancies and no hidden “service charges”. A bespoke woman’s building. Commit to compliance with the Construction Charter & women's involvement. No “poor doors”, separate play areas or segregated spaces. The development to be environmentally responsible (e.g. recycling materials, re-using buildings where possible, protecting trees) and all new homes to be to the highest energy efficient standards, including renewable energy systems. Support the CHARTER for Holloway Prison
Petition to Labour; Lib Dems; Greens; Independents; SNP and Plaid Cymru
Left and Centre alliance for the 2019 UK General Election
We urge Labour, the Lib Dems, Greens, the UK's Independent MPs, SNP and Plaid Cymru to put up only ONE CANDIDATE against the Tory/ Brexit party candidate(s) in all marginal constituencies for the upcoming 2019 General Election. =========================================================== Despite everything, the Tories remain on track to win the upcoming general election. Based on current polling they appear likely to either win a majority or at least become the largest party in parliament again. If they strike a pact with the Brexit Party it would likely lead to a huge Tory majority. A Johnson/ Rees Mogg/ Farage win would be immensely damaging for the UK: > Five years of the most right-wing government the UK has ever experienced, and also very likely > A 'No Deal' Brexit, with huge negative impacts in the short and long term. Labour, the Lib Dems, the Greens, the UK's Independent MPs, SNP and Plaid Cymru therefore need to work closely together ahead of this UK General election. We urge the above parties to put up only ONE CANDIDATE against Tory/ Brexit Party candidates in all marginal constituencies.
