Petition to lbc radio
Remove Katie Hopkins from LBC Radio
This morning, Katie Hopkins posted a a Twitter message about Black Lives Matter when sharing a poster for new Netflix series Dear White People. Alongside a poster of the series, the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant wrote the message: “Dear black people. If your lives matter why do you stab and shoot each other so much." She later deleted the message. This is unacceptable and vile. Yes, freedom of speech is important but her tweet was an unfounded and deeply hurtful racist remark LBC Radio is one of her current employer and gives her a weekly platform to spread hate. LBC's silence is collusion with her racism. if they choose to give her a platform they choose to give racism a platform. If you are opposed to this unwarranted racist attack on the black community then I urge you to sign this petition which asks LBC to cut all ties with Katie Hopkins. #silenceiscollusion #kickkatieoff
Petition to Amber Rudd MP, UK Parliament
Prohibit the purchase of Acid to those without a licence
Acid attacks have become rife in London and all over the United Kingdom. This year the number of attacks doubled. Too many families and individuals are suffering and falling victim to this grievous and criminal act. On June 21st Resham Khan, pictured above, was driving in a car with her cousin. Out of nowhere they were attacked with acid. They’ll both have scars that will never leave them. Their lives have been changed forever. An attack like this could happen to anyone. It is about time that the law changes for the purchase of corrosive substances - right now you can buy it easily from any hardware store if you are 18 and over. Corrosive acids like sulphuric acid are very lethal and life damaging substances. You should only be allowed to purchase corrosive substances with a licence to buy. The person purchasing should go through checks so their details are held on a database or hold a licence. Imagine how many attacks would be stopped if there were controls that made it harder to buy, and meant we knew more about people buying it? Acid attacks have become too common, the Home Office needs to do something to bring it under control. It is a disgusting criminal act. We need licensing laws now to deter this from happening. Please sign this petition to convince the Home Office to take action.
Petition to David Cameron MP
EU Referendum: UK voted out...but didn't vote racism IN: Stop the racist attacks
Following the results of the recent EU referendum, it has revealed an abundance of things in the UK. In the grand scheme of things, it revealed how inherently racist individuals, possibly communities the UK can be. In the past 48-72 hours, there has been an overwhelming surge of racially motivated incidents in the UK, including racist graffiti, flyers being posted in letter boxes to rid Britain of "Polish vermin", people questioned in supermarkets in front of their children about their ethnicity, telling people face to face to "pack your bags" or telling children as young as 11 years old "you're going home now". This was an incredibly big political decision: one that has definitely shocked, and either pleased or disappointed us. However the aftermath, not just politically and economically, is even more shocking. Granted, it is important to note that not every single person who voted leave can be deemed racist. However, those who have expressed such racist attitudes should know one thing; The EU referendum can NOT and SHOULD NOT be used as an excuse, let alone a reason, to justify this surge of racist abuse and attacks. It is shocking to see, let alone live, in a country where those who bear such disgusting racist attitudes think it is OK to let this materialise in physical and verbal forms, and inflict such pain and distress onto others. This is the 21st century, where times and attitudes have changed; but what we have seen in this nation in the past 48-72 hours has shown that the United Kingdom is anything but 'United' and is certainly a fallen 'Kingdom'. And the fact that such horrible inhumane incidents have occurred demonstrate a refusal to see, accept and positively embrace change and reality. Irregardless of your skin colour or heritage, we are ALL human. So in an effort to stop this abuse- which should be stopped NOW before the xenophobia that we witnessed during campaigns spreads intensely- sign this petition to show you care about this current situation, that you too desire change and justice and more importantly, to unite and get it noticed by the police, politicians and judiciary system in the UK. Our political leadership may be broken right now, but over the issue of racism and social welfare, this is an issue which we and they should unite over to fix now. We need to call on them to implement more measures, notices and incredibly severe warnings, where those who have been or are caught engaging or inflicting hate crimes and racist behaviour should be punished immediately and harshly; this should be possible, based on the guidelines set by CPS Prosecution Policy for Racist and Religious Crimes. We can not take a passive approach to this behaviour and it can NOT be exonerated. We shouldn't have to live in an environment where people are afraid of stepping outside because they are afraid of what anyone could say; and unfortunately it all started with a misguided, unacceptable and uneducated reason to vote leave. This is not the UK I grew up in for the past 18 years of my life, and this is not the UK know and love. Please join me in making our voices heard and stop this abuse from growing any further. Thank you.
Petition to Nigel Evans MP
Apologise for supporting Donald Trump
Following Donald Trump's failure to condemn fascism, we call on Nigel Evans MP, to apologise for his earlier support for Trump. In February 2017, Nigel Evans, MP for the Ribble Valley, spoke in support of Donald Trump's state visit to the UK. In fact, so keen was Evans to express his support that his Christmas card to constituents contained a photo of him with Trump. (By comparison, most MPs ask local school children to design them). Despite Trump's leadership of the "birther movement", refusal to disavow the Ku Klux Klan and multiple other acts which indicate his racism, Nigel Evans declared he had seen "no evidence" that Donald Trump was racist. In doing so, and consistently speaking in support of Trump, he ignored warning signs and demonstrated an appalling lack of judgement. Initially, Trump said there had been "hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides". He later called racist groups criminals, but went back on those comments saying that there were "fine people on both sides". His failure to condemn the neo-Nazi gathering in Charlottesville has demonstrated either, that he has racist tendencies of his own, or he is too weak to condemn such people. For context, one of those sides carries swastikas, talked openly of establishing fascism and said "Jews will not replace us". These people were not defenders of free speech, they were neo-Nazis. A former KKK leader praised Trump for not condemning them. Mr Evans, your support for Donald Trump has not been subtle. Even fellow Republicans like Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio have spoken against Trump. Considering the warning signs, you demonstrated an appalling lack of judgement by supporting Donald Trump. Your silence on this matter shames you. Our ancestors spent six long years fighting Nazidom. I ask you to honour their memory and publicly condemn Mr Trump for his weakness against hatred and bigotry.
Petition to Francis Ingham MPRCA, Director General, PRCA
Strip Bell Pottinger of its membership of the trade body PRCA
This Friday the public relations company Bell Pottinger will be hauled before the public relations and communications association (PRCA) disciplinary committee for its work for Guptas’s Oakbay company. This is over the secret campaign it ran to stir up racial tension in South Africa to draw attention away from the Gupta family who are accused of exploiting their friendship with President Jacob Zuma to extract billions of dollars from the state. Mmusi Maimane, leader of the South Africa’s opposition Democratic Alliance party, has demanded that the British PR industry body strips Bell Pottinger of its membership of the trade body for running a “hateful and divisive campaign to divide South Africa along the lines of race”. Bell Pottinger is accused of seeking to stir up anger about “white monopoly capital” and the “economic apartheid” in the country, allegedly orchestrating the creation of fake Twitter accounts to target prominent white business people in South Africa (including some of whom were clients of Bell Pottinger). “Bell Pottinger must face consequences for their collusion with the Guptas using a hateful and divisive campaign to divide South Africans along the lines of race. This was coordinated campaign to further Gupta financial interests‚ and ensure the captured ANC continued to provide lucrative contracts that lined Gupta pockets,” Maimane said. “South Africa is not a political playground where international corporations can disregard ethics to turn a profit"

Petition to David Bennett Sanctuary Housing Group, John Abbey Haringey Council
Bring Adam Payne Home Now!
Our son Adam Payne has been made homeless after, undergoing major spinal fusion surgery at Great Ormond Street Children's hospital, on 4th may 2017. Adam now has metal rods from his neck down his lower spine. It was a major and complicated surgical procedure. Some of you may recognise Adam from the BBC2 documentary called "This is Tottenham" prior to his life saving surgery. Things are even worse for Adam and our entire family now. Adam is almost 12 years old and is a kind,fun loving child. Adam used to love being around his family and friends, loves football ,especially Arsenal FC, and going to the park. Adam loves books and Julia Donaldson is his favourite author, he has a wide range of musical taste from classical to stevie Wonder to Bob Marley. Adam is severally disabled, he is also blind with epilepsy. He has quadrapeligic cerebral palsy affecting all four of his limbs. He is doubly incontinent, he cannot sit up, walk having to use a wheelchair. He cannot talk and remains non verbal with global developmental delay. Adam needs 24HR supervision and care. Despite Adam's disability he is super resilient, patient, and in my opinion a true warrior. Grown adults would have crumbled,with what his had to face in his life. Written off by doctors at birth who said he wouldn't live till five, four major operations at Great Ormond Street, Adam is a true warrior in every sense of the word and an inspiration to anyone that he meets. For almost nine years Adam has been caught either side,of Haringey council and Sanctuary Housing and their failure to work together. Haringey council have failed to assess Adam's needs properly and support Adam by providing basic everyday equipment that he requires. Equipment that will allow him to live his day to day life. This includes very very basic intervention like a hand and foot splints, a wheelchair, home seating system and the list goes on.......... For the last 8 years Haringey Council have been denying and obstructing Adam's home adaptations that will meet his complex health and care needs. This has meant my wife his main carer and I have been carrying Adam,up and down stairs and around the house placing Adam at serious risk of injury. Sanctuary Housing state they can only be guided by Haringey's occupational therapy team who are incompetent. Unfortunately Adam is trapped between two organisations. Both blame the other and claim their actions are totally ethical and within Adam's best interests. Haringey Council have failed to search for a post operative placement in good time and secure it. Discharge from Great Ormond Street was imminent as Adam was already bed blocking. In desperation we sourced Haven House Hospice and pleaded for Haringey to send him there. Adam stayed at Haven House Hospice for six weeks. When the placement expired Adam had nowhere to go. He was faced with immediate homelessness as Haven House Hospice was not prepared to extend his placement and discharged Adam. So we had no choice but to rush Adam to Whittington hospital where he was born. Haringey Council insisted they pack Adam off to a home in Croydon, where violent children are housed and there isn't any stimulation, nor did it meet any of Adam's complex needs. Haringey council then made a "u turn".Insisting Adam must return home to a environment which doesn't meet his complex needs. Haringey's other option is to pack Adam of to Skegness or Surrey miles away from his family and friends. At no point was any consideration given to Adam's feelings,because he is severely disabled, and a child of colour he can be treated with utter disrespect and contempt by Sanctuary Housing Group and Haringey Council in Britain! in 2017! This doesn't address Adams Housing needs as Haringey Council don't have a clue what their doing. They are stumbling alone wasting precious time that Adam can I'll afford to be wasting. Even after a High Court Judge ordered Haringey Council, that Adam cannot return home as it is unsuitable for Adam's needs, Haringey Council insists Adam returns home. They have threatened us,that they will apply for a Care Order if we do not take Adam home. This is clearly not in Adam's best interests to be removed from his family, simply because of Haringey Council and Sanctuary Housing's failure to work together to adapt the house. Adam cannot continue to live in this house and live without being washed,unable to use his equipment that allows him to stand. In an environment which is wholly unsuitable for Adams Complex needs.Adam is currently living at the Whittington Hospital in Islington, even though he is not unwell. This truly is the stuff of nightmares of any parent. The Whittington Hospital cannot discharge Adam. So he now lives in a cramped boiling hot hospital room, kept in isolation due to a strain of MRSA, and cannot acccess the play room nor the playground outside his hospital room. Adam cannot return home not because we are bad parents, to the contrary, it's because the property doesn't meet his complex needs. Our complaints have fell on deaf ears to both the brightest minds, at Sanctuary Housing Group and Haringey Council for 8 years that will soon become 9 years. This could have been avoided years ago with common sense,planning, parallel partnership working between Haringey Council and Sanctuary Housing Group. Adam's situation is beyond crisis point, it breaches all of his human rights, criminals and terrorists get treated better by the state. I implore any decent human being to please sign this petition as it seems both Haringey Council and Sanctuary Housing Group, care more about public opinion than my son Adam's welfare. As the great Mahatma Gandhi said:"The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members"
Petition to Theresa May MP, Baroness Evans of Bowes Park
Rhodri Philipps, 4th Viscount St Davids should not have a peerage
Rhodri Philipps, 4th Viscount St Davids made racist remarks on his facebook account. He has been found guilty in court after calling for violence against Gina Miller In court the Prosecutor Philip Stott said: “In addition to finding it offensive, racist and hateful, she was extremely concerned that someone would threaten to have her run over for a bounty." I want to live in a country that is free of racism and hatred. I feel that were this exists it needs to be confronted and stopped to ensure our communities are safe places to live for everyone. Members of our Aristocracy should not behave in a way that they bring our nation into disrepute or call for hate crime to be committed - this makes our society unsafe. As a result I feel that Rhodri Phillips should be stripped of his titles to make clear the UK does not tolerate this behaviour and that the UK is open and tolerant to all people. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40574754 http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/brexit-gina-miller-viscount-guilty-rhodri-colwyn-philipps-calls-violence-run-over-a7836011.html
