The instability of the political situation in Egypt may deteriorate if women's rights are not stipulated within the new Egyptian constitution.
Whichever regime rules Egypt must respect women's rights.
Upon the death of Princess Diana, something should have been done to make it illegal for the paparazzi to follow, lie in wait for, harass, takes pictures of, scream at, and otherwise stalk celebrities in public places. But very little was done.
The legal definition of stalking (In part) is as follows:
“Fundamentally, stalking is a series of actions that puts a person in fear for their safety. The stalker may follow you, harass you, call you on the telephone, watch your house, send you mail you don't want, or act in some other way that frightens you.
Virtually any unwanted contact between a stalker and their victim which directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear can generally be referred to as stalking,”
Now, we see the same, (if not worse) treatment being thrust upon actor Robert Pattinson. These actions need to be stopped before someone gets hurt or loses their life.
On behalf of Robert Pattinson and other Celebrities who are continuously being harassed and stalked by paparazzi and their massive fan base, We have brought forth this Petition to bring about a change in the harassment and stalking laws.
The continuous following, yelling at, photographing and harassing of celebrities Such as Robert Pattinson by Paparazzi, Along with the fans loitering outside of or on film sets continuously screaming out the names of or insults to celebrities and stalking their every move is what we are trying to stop.
Celebrities are human beings and should be allowed to go out to dinner, go shopping or even to work without being accosted, harassed and stalked along the way by fans and paparazzi. It should be against the law for this to happen. We believe that the ONLY time these actions should be allowed to happen are at Public Events held in "The Light of Day", Scheduled Public Appearances such as news conferences, premieres, and red carpet events etc. Any other time it should be considered stalking with the intent to cause emotional and/or bodily harm. It should be punishable to the full extent of the law.
Troy Buswell admitted to "sniffing the chair" of a female at a meeting. He was described as making sexual noises, and writhing around in mock pleasure after completing this humilating act in front of this female colleague and others.
He has previously snapped a bra of a female in a work environment.
His mysoginistic, disgusting behaviour towards women SHOULD NOT be tolerated. This is the man who MAY be elected to lead our state and be in charge of policy affecting women. He shows a lack of respect, complete immaturity, and deaming, sexualising behaviour towards women. How would he handle domestic violence policy? How would he handle sexual harrassment policy when he has admitted to being a perpertrator!
THIS MAN NEEDS TO BE AXED IMMEDIATELY.

This petition is designed for Maxis/EA Games Online to better satisfy their customers by removing scammers and harrassers from The Sims Online.
There are many, as we know, and we probably know someone who has been harrassed or scammed in this game.
If so, please sign below. We want the scamming and harrassing to stop!
Due to the harrassment being received by the "teamers" in the game Fortune Bingo at Pogo, we (the signers) ask Pogo to disallow "teaming". Some of the harrassment received involves, but is not limited to: cursing, name-calling, false reporting and adding non-teamers to friends list in order to follow them around and further harrass them.
Bingo is, by all rights, a one person game and should not be dominated by those wishing to obtain the offered badge faster than regular players.
THERE IS AN ON GOING HARASSMENT TAKING PLACE BY THE CARSON CA. SHERIFFS DEPT. AGAINST RECENT PAROLEES / CITIZENS.
EXCESSIVE CONTACT WITH NO PROBABLE CAUSE, FOR PULLING OVER, STOPPING THEM ON THE STREETS CALLING THEM OUT OF THEIR FRONT YARDS, AND EXCESSIVE DRIVING BYE THEIR RESIDENCES AND SHINNING SPOT LIGHTS THROUGH THE RESIDENCE WINDOWS AT ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT.
THEY HARRASS, CUFF AND DETAIN CITIZENS/AND RECENT PAROLEES OF THE CARSON/DOMINGUEZ AREAS ON A REGULAR BASIS WHEN THEY ARE ENGAGED IN NORMAL DAILY ACTIVITIES THEREFORE MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR CITIZENS/PAROLEES TO CARRY ON THEIR DAILY ROUTINES WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING DETAINED/CUFFED OR HARRASSED BY THE OFFICERS OF THE CARSON CA. SHERIFFS DEPT.
MANY RECENT PAROLEES HAVE NOT EVEN LASTED ON THE STREETS A WHOLE MONTH WITHOUT BEING ARRESTED ON CHARGES THAT NEVER HOLD UP IN COURT BUT NON THE LESS THEY HAVE HAD CONTACT WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT MAKING THEM IN VIOLATION OF THERE PAROLE,THEREFORE SENDING THEM BACK TO JAIL TO SERVE TIME FOR THAT. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THIS LAW WAS QUITE SET UP THIS WAY AND FEEL AS THOUGH THERE IS A VIOLATION IN THE USE OF THIS LAW.
