Cypriot lawmakers rejected the unprecedented levy on bank deposits in an effort to protect the rights of the people who entrusted it throughout the years.
The time is now for Cypriots to show that together they can succeed and that when people stand united even the most difficult situations can be overcome.
Cypriot people will not remain impassive! Let's create a list of people who want to give back to Cyprus! Let's move words into action!
Depending on the level of response we will ask the Central Bank of Cyprus to open an account for every willing person to contribute. Every single cent counts!
Text has a way of inhibiting communication. While efficient and utilitarian, text just lacks emphasis. I would have italicized emphasis, um, for emphasis, but I can't do that. I also can't do that on Facebook.

Pakistan is a Islamic Republic nation which came into existence on the name of Islam. Pakistan constitution was reviewed based on Islamic sharia law.
Pakistan has population exceeding over 180 million people from different walk of life however what bring the whole nation in common is the religion Islam. Islam is the heart of Pakistan, without Islamic laws Pakistan is not Pakistan. Pakistan throughout the history since 1947 has been successful as fastest growing nation in technology, education, defense, Culture, Tourism, industry etc. The reason Pakistan was succeeding was because people knew this country has a bright futur , and people with that mindset use to invest their time, money and most of all their valuable potential of their knowledge in Pakistan so our country can benefit from it. Every culture in Pakistan had respect for different culture.
People from all over the world used to come to Pakistan to tour Pakistan, People use to participate their knowledge in different industry so Pakistan can flourish in economy. With passion people use to play sports and take initiative in going into navy, army etc. People from different country use to take advantage of high standard of education system in Pakistan. There has been many successful leaders of Pakistan throughout the history however some of the corruption started in Pakistan in late 80s and 90s but things were still not bad as they are right now. With the right leaders things gradually improved in 1999 when Musharraf came into power and slowly Pakistan was developing as a nation in every aspect of good achievements for Pakistan.
However one by one those good moments from Pakistan was melting like a cube of ice melting as the time continues. One of the biggest reason Pakistan has suffered is because of The news media which brought more negativity by only telling the negatives in Pakistan , splitting views of people , confusing people , Dividing people by making politicians fight on personal likes and dislikes. This news media has totally damaged the view of Pakistan as being a progressive nation. If you go search on Wikipedia every news channels broadcast on our television is privately owned channels, which has no proof of any non-relation of the owner with party leaders. Anyone can buy a portion of time by paying channels to express their views by hiding the realities for their own benefits so i think there should be a law which should limit the channels by making them non private so people from different walk of life invest in the channels and so channels cannot broadcast something for their own personal likes , dislikes or being attached to one view.
All my friends who love Pakistan as a nation Please sign this petition so The supreme court can take action so we all can have respect for our identity as Pakistani by focusing on realities as well as positives and by not getting divided by looking at different private news channels. Please Sign this petition.
Case for a People’s Bank.
The Commonwealth Bank was a successful government owned bank with many remarkable achievements over most of the 20th century while it was the ‘People’s Bank’. Among other things Australians saw it as insurance against exploitation by private banks.
The privatisation of the Commonwealth Bank in the 1990’s was a financial disaster for Australia. It came about in the shadow of government deceit, where the people were told that this was to be the last government sale of public assets.
Since deregulation, banks have enjoyed obscene profits and paid their executives multi-million dollar salaries and bonuses. The dark side of the coin shows they have closed branches, cut services, colluded and exploited legally and illegally their collective monopoly of power whenever possible.
This failed deregulation led to all state government banks collapsing and paved the way for a wave of further deregulation and privatization which can exploit the consumer.
The results are being felt by many Australian families who are having difficulties managing budgets such as their privatised utility bills.
Adding to their financial woes is they’re being slugged with an increasing range of bank fees and charges for services, most of which were given free by the original Commonwealth Bank.
There is a strong case to reverse this negative flow, starting with the banks. Options are to nationalise all banks, or create a government owned People’s Bank based on the original Commonwealth Bank model.
Australia’s federal and state governments, general public, and small and large business sectors all stand to gain from a People’s Bank.
For example, the private banks will have to fall in line with the policies and ethics of the People’s Bank. This means less profit for the private banks and more money in your pocket.
The Commonwealth Bank model is cited in overseas publications as a system with enormous merit to both public and private sectors.
We have an opportunity to again demonstrate to the world a banking system that can bring considerable benefits to the federal government and its people.
If you believe we need a People’s Bank, sign the petition and forward it to your family and friends to sign too.

It is disgusting to see what some people say about disabled people and I believe it should be illegal.
For example, this is a link to an image someone made.
It is unbelievable what some people say and no one has done anything to stop it. Making bullying towards disabled people illegal will show that it is wrong.
Baner Tywysogaeth Gwynedd oedd baner y Pedwar Llew yn wreiddiol ond yn dilyn cwymp y Dywysogaeth yn 1283, mabwysiadwyd y faner, yn wreiddiol, gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna gan Owain Glyndŵr. Roedd y ddau yn ddisgynyddion i dywysogion Gwynedd gyda'r hawl i fabwysiadu'r faner. Newidiwyd y llewod i fod yn rhai 'rampiant' gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna defnyddiwyd y fersiwn yna o'r faner gan Owain Glyndŵr yn ystod ei Rhyfel fawr Dros Annibyniaeth.
O dan y faner yma bu Cymru'n annibynnol o tua 1403 hyd at tua 1410 a gan mai baner Harri Tudur oedd un y ddraig goch ar gefndir gwyrdd a gwyn, wedi ei hatgyfodi yn 1958, rydym, fel gwladgarwyr, ond yn cydnabod baner y Pedwar Llew Rampiant fel gwir faner genedlaethol Cymru a gan fod cynlluniau ar y gweill gan David Cameron a Llywodraeth Lloegr i osod Jac yr Undeb ar drwyddedau gyrru ym Mhrydain, rydym yn mynnu ein hawliau dinesig i gael Pedwar Llew Rampiant Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr ar drwyddedau gyrru yng Nghymru.
The Four Lions Rampant was, originally, the Four Lions Passive flag of The Royal House of Gwynedd in Snowdonia, North Wales. Following the fall of the Royal House of Gwynedd, it was adoped by the rightful heir, the great warrior Prince, Owain Glyndŵr during his war of Independence 1400 - 1421ish and the 'passive lions' were changed into 'rampant lions' to illustrate that the Cymru (Welsh) were up in arms.
Under this flag, Cymru (Wales) was independent between 1403 - 1410ish and, as the red dragon on a green and white background was the standard of Henry Tudor King of England and was only resurrected in 1958, we as Welsh patriots only recognise the Four Lions Rampant as the true flag of Cymru and as plans are being drawn up by David Cameron to have the Union flag or Crest to appear on "British" driving licences, we demand our civil right to have the Four Lion Rampant flag of the Cymric people's Prince, Prince Owain Glyndŵr on Cymric (Welsh) driving licences.
Following the complete occupation of Wales by the Anglo Normans in 1282 - 4 and again, in the 1420's following the War of Independence led by the great Welsh Prince Owain Glyndwr, great areas of Welsh land was either taken by the English Crown or 'given' as rewards to English barons for fighting for England in the Welsh Wars.
Ironically this was repeated by the Tudors in the 16th, who were of 'Welsh Descent', One such example being the Dukes of Somerset being given Mynydd y Gwair and much else throughout Southern Wales. This Mountain is now the centre of a major local issue and national campaign as the Somerset Trust intends to establish a Wind Mill Plantation on it.
Apart from the above, much of Welsh land was common land - which meant that the peasantry had the right to build a smallholding on it as well as hunt and fish but, increasingly over the centuries and up to the present, the Gentry and incoming 'New Conquistadores, such as Iron and Slate Masters began to seize this Common Land by means of Enclosure Acts. The issue of Anglican Church ownership was very much addressed in the Welsh Tithe Wars of 1886 - 88 by a National Land League but there is still much unfinished business to be taken care of.
Today, the aforementioned land is still occupied by the English Crown and the descendents of the English barons and, increasingly, by outside 'Utiliy Companies as in the case of the Vyrnwy Estate, It is being extensively plundered of its natural resources, such as water and timber, and is being savagely destroyed by gigantic windfarms. It is our Welsh herital land and we want it returned to the communities and people of Wales through this Wales Land Act.

Chevron may well be cheap and efficient, and they may well be your favourite company, but they have been responsible for one of the biggest causes of death, loss and health problems in the Amazon Rainforest; their own mess!
They have caused so much mess that animals and people, including children, have been forced to drink filthy, toxic water that was once safe. They have poisoned innocent animals that then die slowly and painfully. This also pollutes the people's food sources making them even more at risk.
Children have probably been orphaned and have certainly siblings and family members due to Chevron's mess, which was probably accidental.
!!!NOW CHEVRON HAVE VOWED NEVER TO CLEAN UP THEIR MESS!!!
The mess will exist for longer and even more innocent lives will be lost.
This Labor government is dead in the water. It has lost its way… yet again. Its incompetence and arrogance has led it to be effectively at war with Australia. Its call to class warfare and attempts to divide and conquer Australians in order to enforce incompetent policies have failed.
Citizens, businesses and whole industries are now in unprecedented open revolt against its insane carbon tax, its brainless spendthrift programs and disastrous refugee policies. Labor now trashes our economy and neighbours with one bizarre political quick fix after another. Worst of all, it has no idea how to regroup and get back to governing and has no answers other than to pathologically project all its failings onto Tony Abbott. It no longer listens to it’s citizens and we no longer listen to it. It is now incapable of learning, condemned to repeat their bungling from East Timor to Malaysia, from roof insulation to TV set top boxes.
For it’s own sake and that of Australia, Labor needs to be removed from government and be allowed to disassemble and be reborn again. After all, it is not in our interest for Labor to self-destruct – we need two healthy and vibrant, competing political parties.
Withdrawal from The European Union is an option that must be offered to the people of Britain.
A lot of us have put so much effort into getting into the directory, and now it has been wasted.
The feature has also been great for new people, as it gives them a good place to find people to follow.
We don’t want tumblr to remove explore, we just want the directory back.
Why do those 5 countries have the power to do whatever they want in the world?
Why do only they have the power to cancel any decision from the Security Council?
This unfair for the rest of the world.
1. Make a new people's constitution where all are accountable to the people;
2. A fully transparent system run by the people for the people with the environment taking the lead.
Go read for your self what is going on in this nation.
The facts are in now the decision must be made.
There are many animals and plants even trees in the rainforest going extinct so now you can help!
Also Malaysia is the top palm oil producer (44%) and Indonesia is second with 36 %!
A once proud and thriving cultural development venue, the Lawrence Street Recreation Center has been neglected by the city for years.
While municipal projects went forward elsewhere, our African-American families stood to lose generations of tradition with activities already diminished by the lack of appropriate funding where it is needed most.
Swimming is not only fun, but also a safety skill that disproportionately affects African-Americans from a history that needs no clarification. It is time for Lawrence Street Recreation Center to be re-developed with a full set of amenities of a first class, indoor facility.
We realize that Lawrence Street recreational facility is vital to all citizens of Marietta regardless of race or color, even though it is the African American community that has sought to initiate this endeavor, all are welcome to join.
Note: Cullen Jones, was only the second African-American to ever win a swimming gold medal even though black people are less than 1% of the competitive swimmers. It can't change by closing pools and closing opportunities in our own neighborhoods.
Sign this petition and tell the city that we are not only going to be counted in the Census, but also in our local government on every issue from now on, starting with this one.
Save our Pride. Save our Pool.
It recently came to my attention that Lauren Williams (Angelina Love, of Total Nonstop Action wrestling) had been terminated due to mishandling of her work Visa paperwork. She had been working illegally in the United States ever since she was released from the developmental contract in WWE a couple of years ago. This is all very well understood and has been taken into consideration in the drafting of this petition.
However, as one of thousands of fans of her work, I ask the general public (if not the world), wrestling fans and non fans alike, to come together and make your voices heard by signing this petition. If we can collect enough names, the TNA President and general management will be sure to realize that Angelina Love is a necessary staple in TNA's operation and a much beloved performer to people all over the world.
Perhaps the impact of this petition will encourage Total Nonstop Action wrestling management to pursue future negotiations with Lauren Williams once her work Visa issues have been sorted out.
We are Bradford People First a self advocacy group, run by and for people with a Learning disability.
• We are running a campaign to enable people with learning disabilities and disabilities to travel on buses before 9.30am Monday to Friday using our concessionary bus passes.
• We are unable to use our bus passes before this time so we are limited to the time we start work , attend college, do voluntary work , get to medical appointments etc
• We feel that we are discriminated against, treated unfairly and often humiliated being asked to get off the bus.
• We are unable to afford to pay full fare as many of us are on benefits and often travel with carers, who we also would have to pay full fare for.
• Like many other people with a learning disability we are dependent on public transport as we cannot drive.
• Other councils across the U.K. have implemented a scheme which enables people with disabilities to travel for free at any time e.g. Reigate and Banstead, Luton, Greater Manchester and Suffolk.
• We would also like to point out that people who are visually impaired are allowed to use their bus passes at any time within West Yorkshire and I would like this to be available to all people with a disability.
• We have been writing to M.P’s and the Government to highlight our campaign.
The Metro have told us that they 'have the discretion to make the cut off time earlier or to fund free travel all the time', but due to the extra expense they are not currently willing to change the scheme- Dave Pearson West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive 17/07/09.

THIS TREATY IS PROTECTED BY U.S. COPYRIGHT TX-16017 & U.S. COPYRIGHT, INTERNAL TRACKING # TX-99399
To ask the U.S. Government to develop a TREATY OF FAITHS. The objective, to join hands with all faiths to tell the world that we are love, and that we recognize our unique beliefs and will attempt to stop judging each other. All Church Leaders should talk to their constituencies and tell them that interfaith judgement should stop, and that tolerance and understanding heal our faiths, heal us, and lead us to understand that we are unique and can work next to each other in love. I would like to see this happen as a Worldwide endeavor, a true Universal occurrence. If we did this, it would be the first in history, and all people would agree to stop persecuting each other due to their Faith, their Spiritual beliefs, or Life choices (Re: Abortion. Ex: to disagree is one thing. To hurt or maim is another.)Churches of all Faiths should state that holding one's beliefs is beloved, but to act upon or judge another based on Faith or Life Choices cannot happen.
WE MUST FACE OUR LOVE.
WE MUST FACE OURSELVES.
WE MUST FACE OUR BELOVED CHURCHES, HOLD HANDS, AND REALIZE WE ARE NOT SO VERY DIFFERENT AFTER ALL. WE MUST SIGN A TREATY TO END JUDGEMENTAL PERSECUTION OF PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH. AND IT MUST BE A TREATY BETWEEN ALL PEOPLES, FORGED IN LOVE, TO BE MAINTAINED KNOWING WE ARE A UNIQUE BEAUTIFUL RACE, AND THAT TRUE RACE IS HUMANITY ITSELF.
If we understand this, and start the petition in the United States, and we set the example, we might also be able to reach out worldwide to find a way to touch all Religious Traditions in love. We will submit this petition to the U.S. Government and ask for GLOBAL RECOGNITION of a TREATY OF FAITHS that will attempt to heal our Nation, heal our people, and, hopefully, eventually, the World itself. Once we have forged the TREATY OF FAITHS, we will ask the U.S. Government to build THE CHURCH OF LOVE in Washington D.C., to set a new precedent for Love in our world. This church would respect all religions, all faiths, and all philosophies. The Church of Love’s true
Philosophy, that Love and the perfection of our own souls be first and foremost, and that love bind and connect all religions in Respect and Beauty. It would support the beliefs of all people, and demonstrate that all people on this earth are born and remain equal. Love is the only True Natural Religion...Rebecca Tacosa Gray, Author/Intellectual Owner

On Tuesday 14th October 2008 Ryedale District Council voted against the idea to give under 16’s free swimming. On that same day they decided to give over 65’s free swimming.
This is age discrimination.
This petition is to get a decision discriminating Young People reversed.
On 31st August, 1962, Dr. Eric Eustase Williams brought Indepence for our country from the British Empire and formed the People's National Movement to bring democracy in politics in the country and everything became wonderful for the people.
Today, he might as well be still spinning in his grave, because, after 46 years, our country is in turmoil. crime has escalated, the economy is going down the drain and our conditions have not improved.
Our country cannot wait much longer for things to improve. The people of Trinidad and Tobago should take this vote of no confidence as a cue to call for another fresh elections so they will vote for a better political party that will deliver us for the pain and suffering already inflicted on us.
