1. Bring Torrid to Australia

Here in Australia we're big - We accepted it a long time ago, but we need more fashionable clothes here in Australia for a BETTER PRICE! We have city chic, but really there clothes are too ridiculously priced, if there was another market for plus size women the price we pay for the clothes would go down.

So sign my petition to bring fashion to Australia!

Global Petition Coordinator:
I would like to invite you to help make "Meat Free Monday" adopted by governments around the world. Ghent, Belgium's officials have created an official "veggie" only day - recognizing the many benefits that a plant based diet has on the environment (not to mention human health).

Now you can urge other governmental bodies to do the same. Lend your support by visiting the official international facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=109725730676&ref=ts

If you’re not on facebook you can visit this website
blogs.myspace.com/leronr
for a list of all the "offical" meat free petition movement that is taking place around the globe

I look forward to your thoughts and input on how to make this the best possible plant strong collaborative effort so that our veggie vision is soon shared by those in office and the public at large. We welcome new people who want to take an active role.

All the best,
Global Meat Free Monday Team

6. Child Abuse Prevention Act

This petition was inspired by a 4 year old little girl named Summer Phelps. Summer was basically invisible to everyone since she was only 4 and did not attend school.

Summer endured months of horrifying torture and abuse at the hands of her father and stepmother, who were eventually arrested and charged with her murder by abuse. You can learn more about Summer's case by going to these sites:

7. Make Safe Sex Free

The average cost of birth control and safe sex methods in Canada for womyn over 21 is $25-50 a month. I believe that the cost of birth control is the reason that unplanned pregnancies have risen among womyn below the poverty line by 30% in the last 3 years. This is a ridiculously high number that allows the cycle of poverty to continue, and get more vicious.

Right now, there is a rise in Sexually Transmitted Infections. Between 1997 and 2004 Chlamydia rose by 70%, Gonorrhea by 80%, and Syphilis by 908% in Canada. This is likely due to the cost of condoms, and inaccessibility of free condoms in places such as bars.

8. Stop Wearing Fur

Fur was hugely popular in the '70s and '80s, but it's back in a big way among the 18-25 year-old crowd. So you're probably not suprised that Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Kimberly Stewart, Jenifer lopez, Lisa Gastineau, Hilary Duff, Victoria Gotti, Tara Reid and Paris Hilton have picked up on the fur trend! Each year, more than 40 million animals are killed for their fur.

Fur-bearing animals include foxes, minks, rabbits, beavers and raccoons. To kill animals without damaging their fur, trappers will strangle, beat, or stomp them to death. Animals on fur farms are gassed, poisoned, electrocuted, or have their necks snapped. Ranch-raised animals live in cages about 2 feet square, with up to four animals per cage. There is no federal law that regulates the killing of animals raised for fur.

It can take up to 40 animals to make one fur coat.

11. Save Sharks

May 9, 2006

So, you think that you know everything about sharks, huh? evil eating machines bent on destroying all species but their own, right? ha ha ha.. NO!

Have you ever even taken the time to learn about them. No, you say, slowly walking away from me. You don't care... WELL I DO! Sharks are an important species that clean our ocean. all these people come up to you, trying to get you to listen to thier cause, but you dont even care enough to listen. well, i'm gunna make you listen to me!

Everyday, you hear about these evil killing machines hiding underneath the water. well guess what. we're the mindless evil killing machines ABOVE the water. Sharks are being killed daily and no one does any thing about it. yeah, some places made laws, but are they strongly reinforced? heck no! i want you to give me this little signature to help me get them the reinforcment they need.

I am so tired of all these people, claiming that sharks are mindless killing machines! that really ticks me off! did you know that you are more likely to be struck by lightining than killed by a shrak? bet you didn't. or that your more likely to be malled by a dolfin? bet not... how would you like it for someone to take your pet, cut off it's limbs and tail (if it has one) and throw it in the water for it to drown and bleed to death? and not even take one second to watch it die, just going off to find another? that it what it is like. do you ever see those lost pet sign? remeber the pang of pain you felt when you saw the pics of it? well have a gander at these...

19. Proposed Pit Bull Ban in Chicago

****************************************
Update
****************************************
As of today, the Proposed Pit Bull Ban vote has been postponed---It has NOT been presented to the City of Chicago License and Consumer Protection Committee for their vote before being forwarded to the City Council. We were informed that we have to check the online Agenda for further activity. Please keep those signatures coming though-----Every one counts!!! A heartfelt THANK YOU to all that have signed and passed the word along. We will keep you informed on the proposed ban.
****************************************
On February 11th, 2004 at 10:00 a.m., the Chicago City Council will be voting on a proposed Pit Bull Ban, headed by #19 Alderman Virgina Rugai. Even though Illinois HB 184 is designed to prevent (for lack of a better term) BSL, Chicago is a home rule municipality, therefore can over-ride the State Law.

Below is a link to all the Aldermen for Chicago. Please take the time to phone, fax and/or write your opposition to this proposal:
http://www.cookctyclerk.com/system/dir_chicago.html

Here is Mayor Daley's email to contact him directly:

MayorDaley@CityofChicago.org

There is also another online petition created by a wonderful organization called the Furry Friends Foundation, a no kill animal shelter. It is specifically for Mayor Daley.

If you will be protesting in person, please take a minute to sign the petition and PLEASE REMEMBER: Be respectful and courteous to promote a positive image. Our dogs are at stake.

20. Cheaper ADSL In Australia

This petition is to clearly state that we want cheaper broadband & adsl plans in Australia, particularly unlimited plans. Australia has large and unfair 'limits' on broadband which most people cannot afford. We are behind in our pricing and development on broadband/adsl. The internet is fastly developing a larger need for adsl users, which most users simply cannot afford!

We need cheaper & more reliable adsl, and we do not need small shaped plans - We have a demand for unlimited. Making this cheaper will also earn Australian Computer Companies more revenue, and our currency higher, with our technology soaring higher. This pertition is to show a small percentage of people, out of the millions, that really do care about this issue.

21. Yellowstone National Park Responsible Access

NPS Announces Public Comment Period for Yellowstone Snowmobile Rules.

Everyone who would like to responsibly enjoy Yellowstone National Park in the Winter needs to respond. Quickly Or it may be closed during the winter this year forever

The National Park Service (NPS) has proposed a rule requiring that most recreational snowmobiles entering Yellowstone National Park meet specific air and sound requirements and be accompanied by a trained guide. The proposed rule also dictates daily limits on the number of snowmobiles allowed in the park. These guidelines result from the March 25, 2003 Record of Decision http://www.nps.gov/grte/winteruse/winteruse.htm that addressed the impacts of oversnow recreational vehicle use in the park. Details of the proposal are available at http://www.nps.gov/yell/rule. The NPS is accepting comments regarding the rule until October 14, 2003. Comments can be sent to Yellowstone National Park, Planning Office, PO Box 168, Yellowstone NP, WY 82190, or online at http://www.nps.gov/yell/rule.

Until now...

With the current STi being the newly designed MY03 sedan; we Australians have been issued with a vehicle which not only has the lowest performance output but also various standard options have been stripped from our grasp.

24. Shaq should apologize for racist comments

Thanks for stopping by the petition. I know the notice of a petition is probably a shocker for those of you who know me. Since my catch phases are 'dude, I just work here' and 'all about getting PAID!'

What's this about? Shaq O'Neil taunted Houston Rocket Yao Ming by speaking 'fake Chinese'. You know what I'm talking about: the 'Ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-soh' chant. See the article from Asian Week (http://www.asianweek.com/2003_01_03/sports_yaoming.html). Is he a racist? That's his business. Should we tolerate this type of behavior? Absolutely not.

Shaq has reportedly offered the following apology on Friday 1/10: 'I mean, if I was the first one to do it, and the only one to do it, I could see what they're talking about. But if I offended anybody, I apologize.' (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20030111/ap_on_sp_ba_ne/bkn_shaq_yao_1) Actually, that didn't sound like an apology. Maybe the Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak can do better: 'Knowing Shaquille, I am certain that this was nothing more than a misguided attempt at humor' (http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/sports/4926546.htm)
Sadly that doesn't sound like an apology either.

What's the big deal? Whether the Shaq comments were funny or not, it is a race-based derogatory comment. This is not just an insult to Yao Ming, but also an affront to all Americans want to 'live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.' The sad part is, Shaq was defending himself, instead of giving a real apology!! Now that's no joke.

What should we do about it? Speak up!! Let the media outlets, the NBA, the Lakers, and influential civil rights leaders know that we are not down with this non-apology. Hey, we are people, not rugs. About time people stop stepping on us.

26. Reclaiming Jessica's Pictures and Identity

This petition has been created because someone stole pictures of a little girl and placed them on their website as their own. They even changed the filenames.
The images stolen are here :

While the original photos of this child are here:
http://www.angels-n-miracles4jessica.com/from-jess.htm
http://www.angels-n-miracles4jessica.com/Jessica/
http://www.angels-n-miracles4jessica.com/photos5.htm

When the pictures of both children are compared, you can tell that the stolen pictures are not of Alana, but of Jessica. Even down to my husband's wrist, arm, and watch are in the stolen photos.

These people have stolen my daughter's photos and her identity.

27. Large and in charge?

It has come to my attention that some very mis-guided, and most likely excessively obese and unattractive women have decided to infringe upon our civil rights, and insult our intelligence (see website above). Their twisted observation of the general perception of women is being wielded in an attempt smite our most fundamental rights, most namely the right to free expression. Also at stake is our freedom to choose. These obsessive bovines have decided to champion the cause to remove attractive models from advertising so they don't feel bad about their disgusting, flaccid selves whenever they open Good Housekeeping magazine. Not only is their cause inane, but also their points flawed on a deep-seated level. The entire effort is a colossal exercise in contradiction. For instance, this page from their site

http://www.about-face.org/goo/newten/1/three.html

Shows attractive women in lingerie and appears in their 'Gallery of Offenders' section. These pages:

http://www.about-face.org/gow/newten/3/eight.html
http://www.about-face.org/gow/newten/3/nine.html

show 'fuller' women in lingerie and appear in their 'Gallery of Winners' section. The difference? You guessed it, the fat chicks in underwear are not considered degrading in any way. Why? I guess because they are fat, since that is the only difference I can see. They are still chicks in underwear anyway you look at it. Chicks in lingerie say, "Come and get me" or so the enormous eyesores at about-face.com would have you believe.

So, please help in the effort to silence these overly imprudent, mis-guided, insecure, anxious, scale busters by signing the petition here. Another way is to donate food and send it to:

About-Face
PO Box 77665

29. Stop Comcast from imposing Downloading Caps

Greedy cable ISPs have begun instituting plans to charge for gigabytes downloaded. Comcast, a major cable ISP in the US, has hinted that they are soon to adopt such a system. Users of Comcast have already faced crippling upload and download speed caps, capping the _amount_ of data you download/upload is next. This bait and switch attitude Comcast is exhibiting has to stop.

30. Boycott Vanity Fair Corporation Products

HELP WORKERS IN SUPPORTING THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES

Recently the VF Corporation that manufactures brands such as Lee, Wrangler, Bestform, Lily of France, JanSport, Eastpak, North Face, Jantzen, Red Kap and many others(http://www.vfc.com/pages/leading_brands.asp) decided to lay off approximately 1,800 workers from their factories in El Paso.

These factories are the last of the garment industry on the El Paso side of the border-- leaving a capable and experienced workforce jobless, with no benefits, no time for transition and little hope of finding other jobs. It is a workforce primarily composed of women, who due to discriminatory corporate and state practices do not fit the "retraining prototype".

There is reason to suspect Vanity Fair intends to close these factories completely (http://www.vfc.com/pr/pr73.asp). This means the VF Corporate plan will eventually leave five thousand families of Mexican origin without economic support, and at the same time take advantage low wages in Latin America. Faced with no other opportunities, the workforce on the U.S. side of the border will likely be forced into sweatshop conditions.

However, Vanity Fair workers in El Paso are not voiceless. They are fighting the "political system". They have also formed committees in the different Vanity Fair factories to negotiate with the Corporation. So far the corporation has ignored their requests. Because there must be corporate accountability, they urgently ask for your help.

Please sign their petition boycotting Vanity Fair Merchandise until a more just plan can be agreed on. The public must unite its economic and political strength to demand justice.
