Put the band Infant Annihilator back on Spotify and iTunes

The genre of Deathcore is something I hold very near and dear to my heart. It's different from the average music that is played on the radio with its heavy, and intense sound making it unique from the rest. One of the bands I enjoy listening to in particular is the band Infant Annihilator. Their music is considered the pinnacle of today's Deathcore scene with it's unique sound and phenomenal talent by its members.  On September 13th 2017 the band posted on their Facebook account a screenshot of an email that Spotify and iTunes deemed their content to be too offensive and inappropriate to be on their respected platforms. This is very unjust and unfair considering a lot of the content on the iTunes Store as well as Spotify consists of Hip Hop and other genres that are just as inappropriate or offensive if not more.  Why should the fans of Infant Annihilator not be able to enjoy their favorite band but fans of an artist like Lil Wayne or xxxtentacion who are both notorious for very offensive lyrical content depicting misogynistic, sexual, and gang related themes be allowed to be kept on those streaming services?  So I ask of you Apple and Spotify to please reconsider your choice to remove this band from your streaming service that we use our hard earned dollars to use, and allow us fans of Deathcore to continue to listen to our favorite band on your service. Thank you.

Petition to Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, Mr. Narendra Modi, Maneka Gandhi, Suresh Prabhu

Implement disabled friendly measures in Indian railways

I've been groped and manhandled three separate times by porters. They were helping me board the train because Indian trains are not wheelchair accessible. I am a disabled woman living in Mumbai who loves to travel. I have had to wear a diaper because I couldn’t use the train bathroom. And when I needed to change that diaper, I had no privacy and had to wait for hours for the lights to go off at night The railways treat the disabled as a piece of luggage. This needs to stop! Sign my petition and join me in asking the railway minister and the Prime Minister to implement disabled friendly measures in Indian railways. According to The Disability Rights bill, there need to be facilities available for those with disabilities. The Railway Ministry has been talking of making trains disabled friendly but in reality, we are still humiliated every single time because of poor implementation. My fight is to ensure human dignity for the disabled. I am asking the authorities for some basic things everyone takes for granted- Accessible bathrooms with proper space inside the bathroom, clean and higher toilets, low sinks so we can easily wash our hands.  Accessible coaches for the disabled in all trains, ideally one for each class. Enough space between berths so it is easy to fit a standard size wheelchair between the berths and we can shift onto our seats when needed.  Curtains around the berths for when we need to change. Often, I've needed to change my clothes and the berths are too small for me to role around to change my clothes, as well as have no privacy. Proper infrastructure to cross railroads if needed to change platforms. Beside these infrastructure related demands, I also want an attitudinal shift in the way the disabled are treated: Sensitise people to let those with disabilities board first as the general public normally does not care about our well being. Everyone is in a rush to get to their seats. Sensitise abled-bodied persons to not board the handicapped compartment, especially in local trains. We often see that in the local train, those who are not disabled will climb in. That isn't fair. Train the drivers and TCs to halt the train till a handicapped passenger has finished boarding, especially for local trains. The local train only stops for two minutes and with all the crowd, it is very difficult to board. I want to sit down with PM Narendra Modi or the Railway Minister Mr. Suresh Prabhu and talk to them about the difficulties faced by those whom are disabled. Sign my petition and ask PM Modi and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to implement measures to make the Indian railways disabled friendly.
