Petition to Tribeca Film Festival

Tribeca Film Festival, Apologize to Ukrainians & Deprive "Phone Duty" Of The Award

In April 2018 Tribeca Film Festival became a supporter of Russian terrorism by giving Phone Duty, a Russian movie, the Best Narrative Short award. Phone Duty tells a story from the perspective of Russian terrorists located in Donbas, a Ukrainian territory occupied by Russia. The starring actor, Zakhar Prilepin, is a terrorist himself. He is an infamous Russian writer well known for his imperialistic and xenophobic views. Prilepin is a terrorist who moved to Donbas and fights against Ukrainian Army. He claims openly that the ultimate goal of Russians in Donbas is to advance and occupy the entire Ukraine.   Our Demands We the undersigned demand from Tribeca Film Festival to: - Denounce Phone Duty as the winner of the Best Narrative Short award. It's a piece of pro-Russian propaganda, and a real Russian terrorist stars in it. - Remove the phrase "Donbass rebel fighter" from the movie synopsis on the Festival's website. "Russian terrorist" would be a more appropriate wording. - Publicly apologize for hurting the feelings of all Ukrainians, who've lost their loved ones as a result of Russia's military intervention into Ukraine. *****Follow this campaign on the petition's website!                           Can you chip in $3 to get this petition on the agenda?Within an hour, this petition could have thousands more supporters if everyone chipped in the price of a coffee. Yes, I'll chip in $3 or moreNo, I'll share instead

Petition to U.S. Department of State, U.S. Secretary of State

Add Russia To The List Of "State Sponsors of Terrorism"

Today's Russia is the country that have recently killed thousands people in Ukraine and Syria, and keeps killing Ukrainians, Syrians, Crimean Tatars and people of other nationalities. This is the country that occupies parts of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova. The country that kills Ukrainians with artillery, rockets, mortars, gunfire and landmines. The country that kills Syrians with chemical weapons. The country that kidnaps Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars, tortures them and sentences them to unlawful imprisonment. The country that shot down the MH17 Malaysia Airlines plane in July 2014, killing 298 innocent people. The country that attacks its targets on British soil using chemical weapons and radioactive materials. The country that floods media with fake news. The country that meddled with the US presidential elections. We the undersigned ask you to add Russian Federation to the U.S. Department of State's list of "State Sponsors of Terrorism", which currently includes Syria, Iran, Sudan & North Korea. Adding Russia to the abovementioned list will allow United States to implement more sanctions against Russia, in addition to the existing ones, thus possibly making it harder for the Russian government to continue their terrorist activities.                                               Can you chip in $3 to get this petition on the agenda?Within an hour, this petition could have thousands more supporters if everyone chipped in the price of a coffee.

Stop illegal logging in Russia

     Illegal logging in Russia has been prevalent for many years now. However, not many people know about this problem. Russian leaders do not do anything about this problem. Here's why this is important: 1. Russian forests are being pushed to destruction from large-scale illegal logging. Wood from illegal logging is used to supply Chinese furniture and manufactures, who then export to the US and Europe. 2. The scale of this illegal activity is demonstrated by WWF Russia who has conducted 10 years of on-the-ground field observations. 3. Reports show that Russia’s forest sector is deeply criminalized from poor law enforcement. Bribery and corruption between Russian law enforcement is common.  4. Illegal logging allows illegal loggers to plunder valuable timber stocks of oak, ash, elm, and linden with impunity. 5. Logging companies are cutting down more trees than they are permitted. Illegal timber companies have forged paperwork and timber is being illegally shipped to China and the U.S.  Some effects of deforestation include the acceleration of global warming, soil erosion, flooding, and animal displacement. Every year, an average of over 16,000 square miles of trees are deforested, most of which are boreal forests. Russia has over a fifth of the world's forests, and much of it is being lost by illegal logging.  We petition the Ministry of Natural Resources to encourage and regulate legal logging, ban clearcutting, and implement stricter laws to counteract the illegal logging in Russia.
