Petition to Jeff Sessions, Department of Justice

The Department of Justice Should Investigate Hillary Clinton and DNC for Treason

Some, such as the failed VP candidate Senator Tim Kaine, are starting to call Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russian lawyer an act of treason.Why is this? Presumably it is because it was an attempt to interfere with an election. If this is such a concern, why wasn't Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and the DNC called out for 'treason' for colluding with one another to stop Bernie Sanders from becoming the democratic nominee?As a concerned citizen of the United States of America, I am calling on the Department of Justice to open an investigation into Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and the DNC for interfering in the democratic primary. If Donald Trump Jr. will be interviewed because he met with a Russian lawyer, then we should treat the group involved in, as Senator Kaine put it, "hijacking democracy" the exact same way that Donald Trump Jr. is being treated by the media and the democrats. If democrat politicians are so concerned with the integrity of the electoral process, they should have no problem with supporting this petition. In fact, Tom Perez has admitted that the democratic primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKlZRtNb_iEOf course, we already know from the DNC emails that Wikileaks released that the democratic primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders:https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/07/24/here-are-the-latest-most-damaging-things-in-the-dncs-leaked-emails/?utm_term=.00bf93aebdefWho could forget that Debbie Wasserman Schultz had to resign as chairman of the Democratic National Committee due to the revelations of a rigged democratic primary? American citizens, politicians, and other government officials should not exempt any person from accountability to the law of the United States of America. If Donald Trump Jr.'s actions for speaking with a Russian lawyer about possible dirt on Hilltary Clinton is treason, we must conclude that what happened in the DNC was the result of an act of treason by all of those who were involved. All citizens of the United States needs to be assured that one's position does influence how our justice system treats them. If you agree, sign this petition and share it with as many people as possible so that our concerns can be heard.

Petition to European Union, IACHR , Marco Rubio

Ask Brazil and Russia to stop selling tear gas to the Venezuelan regime

The Venezuelan people is fighting on the streets, demanding that the government opens a humanitarian channel to ensure food, water, and basic medicines get to the people. It is also demanding the scheduling of expired regional elections and a revocatory referendum. The government, in control of all branches of power in Venezuela, chooses to ignore its own people, causing a dramatic increase in the death toll for starvation and basic illnesses, which adds to the everyday violence, adding up to over 24K deaths per year. Instead, the government is using its military force against its own people, killing at least one or two protesters per day over the past 50 days of protests. Although there is a legal ground for the use of tear gas, the Venezuelan government is shooting at close range directly at people and killing most by cardiac or other kinds of concussions... they went so far as using helicopters to throw the cans at a lethal speed. Most of the cans are marked with expired dates, making them even more dangerous. On top of that, there are hundreds of videos showing improper use of force, violations of human rights, arbitrary detentions, hundreds of missing people, destruction of private property, armed civilians infiltrating pacific demonstrations, and usage of other non-authorized weapons against the protesters. Most of the used weapons are made in Brazil and Russia, and we're begging the international community to urge both countries to stop providing such ammunition to the Venezuelan government until it complies with international human rights law. Please sign and help up make our voices heard, Venezuelan lives are depending on you.

Petition to Time Magazine, Brobel Design, Nancy Gibbs

We demand an apology for negative portrayal of a Christian church on Time Magazine's cover

The May 29th Time Magazine cover designed by Brobel Design depicted St. Basil's Russian Orthodox Christian Cathedral, located near the Kremlin in Moscow, enveloping the White House. This accompanied an article discussing "Russia's social media war on America". Additionally, the image displayed does not portray the several prominent crosses located on St. Basil's Cathedral. They have been removed from the image. We find all of this misleading, unprofessional, and unbecoming a respected organization such as Time Magazine for the following reasons: 1) Portrayal of a Cathedral belonging to the second largest Christian group in the world, the Orthodox Christian Church, as something harming America. The Orthodox Christian Church (of which the Russian Orthodox Church is a part of) has thousands of parishes within the United States, and millions of American citizens belong to the Orthodox Christian Church. To portray a Cathedral of the Orthodox Christian Church as an enemy of America is an insult to, and an attack on all the members of this faith. 2) Removal in the image of the crosses which are prominently placed atop St. Basil's Cathedral. Removal of the crosses from the cathedral in the Time Magazine cover masked the fact that this building--and by extension all other Russian Cathedrals in this style-- is in fact a Christian Church. This enabled Time Magazine and others to display these Churches as dangerous to America without disclosing that they are in fact Christian Churches: Churches of the religion held by the majority of Americans. We demand that Time Magazine, the  Editor of Time Magazine, Nancy Gibbs, and Brobel Design issue a public apology for the above reasons.
