ISIS Stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the goal is to have complete 100% sharia law in every country it infiltrates, world wide. By not standing up for our way of life and allowing sharia law in Australia or any western country, the war in Syria is completely hypocritical as we are then partially allowing the very thing we despise and fight against to flourish at home. We do nothing to prevent sharia law out of fear we are not being politically correct and this needs to change.

While Shari’a already has a foot in our door in the matter of minor disputes like inheritance and domestic violence, it should concern you that Shari’a:

• Commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped;
• Allows husbands to hit their wives;
• Allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge – literally an eye for an eye;
• Commands that a thief must have a hand cut off;
• Commands that homosexuals must be executed;
• Orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death;
• Orders death for both Muslim and non-Muslim critics of Mohammad, the Qur’an and even Shari’a itself;
• Orders apostates to be killed;
• Commands offensive, aggressive and unjust Jihad.

As written in the Qur’an, Shari’a is the law of Allah. Any other form of government is a sin. It is the duty of every Muslim to keep striving until all governments have been converted to Shari’a law.

The video below explains what we are dealing with it in more detail

2. Keep My Husband Guy In Australia

I met my now husband Guy in 2010. He had already applied for Australian Residency after completing a $20000 Tafe Course on a student Visa supported by his immediate family, who are all Australian Citizens.

All was well till a glitch in process ruined all our plans for the future. He only received an email letting him know he was an illegal immigrant in 2012. Our world was falling apart, my mother who had been battling cancer since 2010 had to have another operation and my Aunty who was a huge part life was diagnosed with terminal cancer. All the while Guy and I had 3 teenagers (my beautiful children) to try and keep going. Guy was there for me. We were allowed to put in another application and were given options that would could quite possibly been approved but would have involved him having to leave my side. We chose the partner option and have had it refused.

I truly believe it was our age difference that has swayed the decision. Our Appeal goes to the Migration Review Tribunal on the 26th of Oct and I am pleading for SIGNATURES to add to our evidence

3. Abolish Parental Alienation In Australia

We are a group of loving Parents, Mums, Dads, Grandparents & family members of children who cannot stand by any more seeing innocent children being deliberately alienated from their family.

Parents who try to alienate their child from his or her other parent convey a three-part message to the child:

(1) I am the only parent who loves you and you need me to feel good about yourself;

(2) the other parent is dangerous and unavailable,

(3) pursuing a relationship with that parent jeopardises your relationship with me. In essence the child receives the message that s/he is worthless and unloved and only of value for meeting the needs of others.

Research with “adult children” of parental alienation syndrome (that is, adults who believe that when they were children one parent turned them against the other parent) confirms that being exposed to parental alienation represents a form of emotional abuse.

Furthermore, these adults reported that when they succumbed to the pressure and rejected one parent to please the other, the experience was associated with several negative long-term effects including depression, drug abuse, divorce, low self-esteem, problems with trusting, and alienation from their own children when they became parents themselves. In this way the cycle of parental alienation was carried forward through the generations.

Thus, parental alienation is a form of emotional abuse that damages the child’s self esteem in the short run and is associated with life-long damage.

4. "FREEMEE" give convicted felons a real 2nd chance

Employment rights
Many private employers will conduct background checks and choose not to hire felons. They are allowed to discriminate in this way, but it is not a requirement. However, certain public positions bar felons from taking employment. These include employment with the U.S. Armed Forces, law enforcement agencies, teachers, child care professionals and many jobs that require a professional license.

Renting Rights
2. I recently applied for a apartment and was rejected. The reason they gave me was stated in one word: criminal. I have a felony conviction almost 10 years old. Is this a form of discrimination?

5. Rhode Island: Stop the Proposed Ban on Fireworks in Rhode Island

Back in 2010, fireworks were legalized in Rhode Island. They created countless jobs and boosted the economy, which was tanking beforehand. They generated revenue, including tax money from outside of the state, since neighboring states do not have fireworks ordo not have as vast a variety of fireworks as are in Rhode Island. Patriotic Americans were able to celebrate our country's independence with a national pastime.

But now, Corvese has introduced a bill which would overturn the law and make everything illegal once again. He claims he wants to create jobs, but yet, he continues to push H5187, which would demolish a vast market opportunity, demolishing hundreds or even thousands of well-paying and desperately needed jobs. Furthermore, it would decrease tax revenue to the state, making the burden on taxpayers unbearable, as the weight would be shifted to the working class within the state.

Even worse, safety was never an issue brought up by Corvese. His only lame excuse was that he had a petition of a mere 105 residents, complaining that their dogs were whining. Is this cause enough to destroy our state? Stop this insane proposed bill now! Visit for more information.

7. Support No Statute of Limitations for Criminal 1st Degree Sexual Conduct in Michigan

Currently in the state of Michigan there is NOT a statute of limitations on 1st degree criminal sexual conduct UNLESS the abuse or attack took place before the year 2000. If the law recognizes NO limits then that's exactly what it should mean.

So at this time if a sexual abuse/attack took place before the year 2000 the offenders can not be prosecuted even with a written confession.

A survivor should be able to choose when to come forward during the healing process if they choose to prosecute in a year or 30 years from now.

9. Give UK citizens the same rights as Europeans to bring their family in to the UK

Please give UK citizens the same rights as Europeans to bring their family in to the UK.

Most British citizens do not realise that they do not have the same immigration rights (in returning to the UK with a family) as European citizens. Thousands of British people are either forced to leave the UK or prevented from being with their family due to much more stringent rules on families of British citizens.

British Immigration Law explicitly declares British people to be non-European, and thus not protected by European law. A European can enter the UK with a partner (from anywhere in the world) if they have lived with them in Europe for 2 years i.e. durable relationship.

A British citizen has much stricter conditions: (i) minimum income £18.6k (more if they have children) (ii) must be married (iii) must speak English. None of these conditions apply to European citizens entering the UK with partner and/or family.

Thousands of British citizens are either denied their human right to a family life, or forced to leave their own country. The income requirements and the marriage requirements cause particular problems (e.g. inability to get a divorce under foreign laws, and thus impossible to remarry - forever preventing the British citizen from returning).

Please give British people returning to the UK equal rights to Europeans entering the UK and prevent this terrible injustice. This will reunite thousands of families who have been divided for years by an inequitable and unjust law.

10. Petition Against Consensual Sex For 12 To 15 Year Olds

As it stands the Sexual Offences Act considers consensual sex below the age of 16 to be an offence. The Amendment to the Sexual Offences Act seeks to reduce this age to 12.We consider this amendment to be absurd for the following reasons:

1. Psychologically under 16’s are not mature enough to make sexual decisions or understand the consequences thereof.

2. It exposes under 16’s to the risks of HIV/Aids and other STDs, prostitutions, statutory rape, abortion and child pornography.

3. It places an unfair burden on parents by taking away their rights to restrain their children from sexual activity. Children will be free to make their own decisions regarding sex.

4. School communities will become platforms for sexual activity for learners. Education staff will be unable to contend with sexually unruly and chaotic learners.

5. It will lead to an increase in teenage pregnancies. School drop-out will increase and unemployment and other socio-economic problems in the country will soar.

6. It violates the Child Protection Act because it will be “exposing or subjecting a child to behaviour that may harm the child psychologically or emotionally”.

7. It will encourage the growth of child pornography as an industry and other crimes in South Africa. International black-market demands will be made on SA since sex with under 16’s is illegal in other nations.

8. It will permit under 16’s to undertake abortions without the presence of parents or adult guardians.

Other nations, including the United States, do not promulgate consensual sex for under 16’s. If this amendment is successful it will make South Africa the most liberal nations in the world with regard to the age of sexual consent!

The authority to decide the destiny of minor children should lie with their parents/ guardians. As responsible citizens of South Africa we must prevent laws that expose our children to harm. The rights of our children are cannot be violated. The rights of children must be secured at all costs.

As parents, guardians and responsible citizens I sign this petition and thereby express my disapproval of the amendment to give under 16’s consent to engage in sexual activity.

11. Round The Clock Child Care

In recent studies it has been shown that although there are many childcare providers only a few offer non-standard hour childcare. Now the growing demand of a service-based economy have eaten-away the traditional am-pm, Monday-Friday working week.

Large proportions of the labor force now have to be available beyond the old work pattern. New work patterns such as round the clock work, shift work, and extended hours are now found everywhere,in shops in hospitals, care homes, post offices, warehouses and factories, just to name a few.

In addition to changing working patterns, increasing parental employment and changes in cultural and social attitudes highlight the issues of work-life balance, bringing increasing demand for non-standard hours childcare provisions to the fore.

at the heart of this new workforce:61% of working families contain parents employed outside regular 9-5 hours (DFEE2000),managing shifts,and working during early mornings,evenings, nights, and weekends.A study by the Daycare Trust (2000) also suggests 34% of working families contain a parent who worked long hours, and 22% of working families contain a parent who worked shifts. So the need for non-standard hour childcare is great.

What exactly are our politicians doing for the community? No, this does not include holding up a can of peas smiling ear to ear for the news team photographer on how they donated lots of can goods!

Many families would rather work for their food than collect food-stamps contrary to popular opinion. When needs aren't realized,that is a failure on our leaders part for not asking the right questions. When needs are brought to our leaders attentions, that not only must be addressed,but goes ignored,that is OPPRESSION of the people by our leaders!

12. Zero tolerance for visitors to Australia whom commit serious offences

As Australians we are proud of our country and are more than happy to share it with foreign visitors. However there are some visitors here either studying, working or just visiting who choose to break the law and it's our citizens who pay the price physically, financially and psychologically.

The law needs to change for all visitors to this great land in the form of one strike policy. This means that for any visitor who commits any of the below 10 divisions of crime would result in the immediate removal from Australia.

Divisions of crime

01 Homicide and related offences

02 Acts intended to cause injury

03 Sexual assault and related offences

04 Dangerous or negligent acts endangering persons

05 Abduction, harassment and other offences against the person

06 Robbery, extortion and related offences

07 Unlawful entry with intent/burglary, break and enter

08 Theft and related offences

09 Fraud, deception and related offences

10 Illicit drug offences.

We would like to have the current California laws for the disabled changed. Some individuals are using their disability to legally extort money from small business owners.

Our hope is the law will change and business owners be given a warning with 60 days to fix any issues. Then if issues are not started to rectify the problem then fines can be awarded. The law should not allow for one individual to go from town to town to line their pockets with lawsuits either.

I am horrified at the processes that are used to cut these girls, and the inhumane act of stitching the vagina entrance, is against the laws of our lands for good reason.

We ask for a more pro-active response to this horrifying problem, for the act of FGM to be highly judged so that the length of sentence may deter the people who commit the crime of FGM. We say no to Female Genital Mutilation.

15. Abolish the Offender Levy Cash Grab

The Offender Levy is an extra payment you are required to pay if you plea guilty in court. This cash grab was introduced in August, 2012. The government has supposedly introduced the levy to help pay for the cost of law enforcement and administration.

You are not able to appeal the imposition of the levy however the levy will be removed if all convictions relating to the sentencing event are overturned on appeal.

This levy can be increased 'at will' by the Queensland government.

16. Legalise suppressors for firearms

The National Firearms agreement states that suppressors are a category R "weapon";
"(h) a silencer or other device or contrivance made or used, or capable of being used, or intended to be used, for reducing the sound caused by discharging a firearm;"

It is unfortunately widely thought that suppressors fully silence a firearm. This is however false. A suppressor will only dampen the noise produced from a discharging firearm.

Even though hearing protection is available firing a large caliber rifle whilst undercover does not protect the hearing to comfortable levels.

In fact it is highly recommended that even with a suppressor a shooter should wear hearing protection. The typical suppressor only manages to reduce 14.6 - 45Db the reason for so much variation is due to length of suppressor/whether the ammunition is subsonic and location.

Suppressors are used by several countries for the purpose of protecting hearing of the shooter and any bystanders. Some of these countries are: New Zealand, Finland, Germany, Norway and Poland to name a few.

17. Rearrange the FE-1 Dates

As graduates around the country prepared to sit the notoriously difficult FE-1 exams, the Law Society announced last Friday that the exams will be moved forward by two weeks. This means that students have 20% less time to prepare that was previously the case.

The FE-1s are of utmost importance to most students who sit them and, as the only means of entrance into the Professional Practice Course, they have the power to dictate any applicants' career progress. Most of the applicants will have contracts conditional on them passing all 8 exams by a certain date.

In changing the dates of the exams, The Law Society have not only made the exams a more daunting and stressful prospect for students but also put hundreds of graduates' careers on the line. This page is set up to resist this manifest injustice and ask that the Law Society, should they be unable to hold the exams on the original dates, move the exams back rather than forward. This would give all concerned a better chance to adapt.

Nobody who sits or has sat the FE-1s would suggest taking it lightly. They are exams that require tireless work and preparation and it is not too much to ask that the Law Society recognise this in their organisation of the exams.

21. Stop bullying in Australia

We are trying to stop bullying.

Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively to impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power.

Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Justifications and rationalizations for such behavior sometimes include differences of class, race, religion, gender, sexuality, appearance, behavior, or ability. If bullying is done by a group, it is called mobbing. The target of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "victim".

22. Review the Oppresive Firearm Act: Nigerians should own Guns without legal impediments

The Nigerian firearms act of 1990 is one of the most reprehensible laws of Nigeria as seen at the website

This law snatches the power to bear arms and self defense from citizens and empowers religious fanatics and extremists who have killed thousands of Nigerians. Of note is the Boko haram insurgency which targets peaceful law-abiding citizens. Armed robbery attacks are on the increase. Militancy, religious fundamentalism and kidnapping are the order of the day.

There is mounting evidence that outlaws abound when they know that their targets are unable to defend themselves.

It is imperative that Nigerians be allowed to enforce their rights to life. Right to life and Freedom from oppression is guaranteed in the Nigerian constitution. Only an armed person can be free.

23. Save the animals. We want justice in this country. Not only for us but for animals too.

“Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people. ” - César Chávez

One day, I happened to see a video of how the government servants in Malaysia tortured stray dogs, which according to them, they were just removing the stray dogs from the streets. The dogs were bleeding but the people did not care. I am an animal lover and my heart ached when I watched it..

I know there are people outside there who loves animals as much as I do and hate how these dogs are treated, as much as I do but may not have done something to stop this. I don't know what's the chance of me to win this, but I know that if I don't try, I'll never know.

Christie and to date he has refused to meet with me or uphold the law.I have supplied Gov. Christie with copies of the altered records. This is FRAUD.

27. Stop the war on goths and emos

The Russian government wants to ban gothic and emo music. They also want to ban any youngster from entering a government or school building whilst wearing gothic or emo-style clothing. I do not think that this is acceptable.

Here's why:

Goths are NOT always evil. I am a goth and I am always putting money in charity boxes, signing petitions for causes that I care about and going on "click-to-donate" websites. I absolutely love animals and am a vegetarian. This is not uncommon amongst the gothic subculture.

Most goths are not involved in animal sacrifices and, because we feel secluded and are often persecuted, many goths are very sympathetic towards others who are also persecuted, misunderstood and/or just mistreated, i.e the animals that are kept on factory farms or the wolves that are being hunted due to their bad reputations. In fact, we are generally so open towards others who are treated cruelly that many homosexuals and bisexuals turn to the gothic subculture and are accepted there.

Discuss this matter with any normal goth or even just anyone who has ever had real experience conserving with normal goths and they will tell you that goths are generally very friendly, caring people.

Goths also do not have to be depressed. Many of us are, but that does not mean that we all are. Also, how would our being depressed serve as a good reason to discriminate against us? We don't discriminate against non-gothic people who are depressed. We sympathise with them, so why shouldn't we do the same with goths?

Goths are not always drug addicts, alcoholics or gangsters. In fact, I was reading a post from another goth on the Internet. This one was saying about how his/her mother had always been against his/her gothic style, saying things like "why can't you be normal like my friends' children?" Yet those "normal" youngsters all ended up getting into drugs and, possibly, gangs as well. The goth, on the other hand, stayed away from all of it.

Even emos, the ones whom we goths are sometimes forsworn enemies with, can be nice as well. Each to their own!

The Department of Immigration & Citizenship is responsible for Australia's interests as regards people who come to this country with the intent to stay, and within that they are responsible for our response to those who have come from areas of the world where it is perilous to remain. Those people are called asylum seekers and their right to approach us for help is enshrined in International Law.

The way in which they choose to exercise this duty is a matter of public policy and much debate, however recently one or more members of the department have deliberately antagonised members of online communities who are sympathetic and compassionate about refugees, with aggressive advertising that seeks to discourage refugees seeking asylum. As visible at

It is one thing to have opinions about, or execute public policy. It is quite another to use the Internet to deliberately harass and cause offence to people because they congregate to discuss your behaviour critically. In fact, using a "carriage service" such as the Internet to harass, menace and cause offence is illegal under section 474.17 of the Criminal Code (cth).
