3. Provide Educational Resources to the Displaced Child Refugees of Syria

As a result of the ongoing Syrian Conflict, education in the neighbouring refugee camps is sadly lacking or non existent. Children from all countries and all beliefs deserve the same developmental opportunities that we grew up with in Canada.

Without it the basic foundations of learning the children of Syria will never be able to properly understand the situations they find themselves in and will be easily susceptible to coercion. A proper education now is the key to stopping military action in the future.

Friends Of Syria Canada is petitioning the Canadian government for their commitment in providing educational resources to the over 1 million children seeking safety in the neighbouring countries of Lebanon and Jordan. In an emergency meeting held by Parliament to discuss Canada's plans to confront ISIL on September 16th, preventative military measures were discussed but humanitarian aid efforts were disregarded.

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander is quoted as saying "Our goal is to deter and prevent terrorism worldwide". As of now ISIL believed to have between 20,000 to 30,000 members, and the cost of fighting them is already exceeding a billion dollars. Imagine what the damage and costs will be if they were only to recruit even as low as 10% of Syria's children.

The rest of Minister Alexander's quote is "Our goal is to prevent Canadians from being involved more than they already are". The fact is ALL Canadians are involved. Terrorism effects our lives everyday.

We pay for higher levels of security, we pay for our privacy to be monitered, we pay for our soldiers to fight battles, and we pay for all the lives that are lost. Sign our petition now and show the Canadian government that we want to pay for a better future for the children Syria and for the world.

5. Petition to have the beheading videos removed from YouTube

This is a petition, to stop the promotion of violence, that we feel YouTube is asserting, by allowing videos of woman, men, and children, being tortured, shot, and beheaded. It is illegal to allow videos of illegal acts to be broadcast.

We dont understand, how YouTube, does not recognize that by posting these horrific videos, they are promoting terrorists actions?

YouTube, is giving these terrorists another reason for this violence, an audience.

We dont feel that terrorists, and these horrific acts, should be recognized as something, that we as a people, and a country, want to see. And giving life to it in the media, is not only disturbing, but we feel, promoting more videos to be made.

We would like to see this stopped immediately.

6. Petición Para Legalizar La Marijuana Medicinal En Panamá (Como en Uruguay y Colombia)

La Marihuana (Cannabis) en Panamá ha sido prohibida durante mucho tiempo en nuestro país. Las penas por posesión, uso o cosecha de la marihuana en Panamá son graves, y los convictos pueden esperar largas penas de cárcel y fuertes multas. Sin embargo, hasta ahora, no se han encontrado o conocido en todo el mundo que no hay malos efectos de la marihuana.

En 1925, Panamá Canal Zone Informe – “La influencia de Marihuana al parecer, se ha exagerado mucho. No hay evidencia que tenga una influencia apreciable perjudicial para la persona que lo utiliza”.

En 1944, Panamá Canal Zone Informe – “No hay relación directa entre la comisión de los delitos de violencia y la marihuana. Y la propia marihuana no tiene ningún efecto de estimulo especifico en lo que se refiere a los deseos sexuales. El uso de marihuana no conduce a la morfina, cocaína o la adicción a la heroína”.

Las últimas y más recientes investigaciones científicas han descubierto que la marihuana tiene la capacidad de curar el cáncer, Además de tener miles de usos medicinales y a la vez la marihuana legalizada puede mejorar la economía de nuestro país. Con muchos países haciendo su paso para legalizar la marihuana como:

Argentina (Descriminalizado)
Australia (Descriminalizado)
Bélgica (Descriminalizado)
Cambodia (Descriminalizado)
Canadá (Descriminalizado)
Colombia (Descriminalizado)
Costa Rica (Descriminalizado)
Croatia (Descriminalizado)

Rusia (Descriminalizado)
España (Descriminalizado) y (Legal)
Suiza (Descriminalizado) y (Legal)
Estados Unidos (Descriminalizado) y (Legal)
Ukraine (Descriminalizado)

Yo he tomado un paso adelante firmando esta petición, un esfuerzo por legalizar la marihuana medicinalen nuestro país Panamá.

"En ningún momento caigan en el error de pensar que algunas de sus tareas o misiones son de poca importancia. Un modesto granito de arena, un solo milímetro en la correcta dirección histórica, es un avance mil veces mayor que un metro en la dirección opuesta a la de nuestro proceso."

7. Stop Pet Pig Discrimination

In most cities there are outdated laws that ban pigs as pets in most residential areas. 50 years ago these laws made sense because pigs were at least 100 lbs and were used strictly as livestock. Well a lot of innovation has happened since then in the pig breeding industry. Through selective breeding pigs are now being sold who full grown will never grow over 65 lbs. These pigs are labeled as "micro", "mini", "teacup", and "pygmy". They are illegal to own in the city of college station in multifamily homes and some residential areas.

Even when these pigs are allowed, you must obtain certain permits to keep them and even to drive them around. There is no reason these micro-pigs should be regulated more than cats and dogs. They are hypoallergenic, easy to potty train, just as destructive as an under stimulated dog/cat, smaller than a lot of legal dog breeds including labs and bulldogs, and are smarter than canines.

The reason these laws are still in existence is because they have not been pressed and evaluated by the public, but new cases are arriving in the United Stated that are challenging these laws in a lot of big cities.

Support for this petition means that you support the right of free Americans to posses a pet pig that is essentially harmless, and to keep pet pigs in the homes of their loving owners who are being forced to get rid of them with threat of fines and imprisonment.

9. Florida doctors are legally getting away with murder! Change the wrongful death act 768.16-768.26

The statute gives only doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers virtual immunity for negligently killing some of the most defenseless members of our society!

According to the Florida Wrongful Death Act, Doctors can commit malpractice and not be liable. The State of Florida's Wrongful Death Act states that if you are over 60 and have no dependents under the age of 25 and you are not married, your life is worthless. A doctor could essentially kill you through gross negligence/medical malpractice and you/your family, etc. do not have right to sue for malpractice! The doctor is not held liable for his negligent actions!

This needs to change immediately to protect Florida's Residents! Our seniors are most affected by this statute! We all have mothers, fathers, grandparents, let's prevent them from becoming "guinea pigs" of the medical industry and put value back into their lives! This began when a dear friend's mother died at Morton Plant due to gross negligence and malpractice on behalf of the doctor and surgeon. She went in for a routine/elective heart surgery. She was on blood thinners and a weight loss medication and any surgeon NEVER should have operated on her while on those medications. The hospital and surgeon were aware of the medications! To make matters worse, an expert medical opinion suggests that the surgery was unnecessary anyway and the minor heart murmur would have went away simply by taking her off the weight loss medication. The surgeon was young and inexperienced and should have been given guidance by the hospitals cardiac division. She should be alive today! Help protect the rest of our Florida seniors by changing this statue so doctors will be held accountable for malpractice!

In fact, ANYONE who has no dependents under the age of 25, is under-employed, disabled, or otherwise a defensless memeber of society, and is a victim of medical malpractice or negligence, Florida law deems them worthless and cannot bring a medical malpractice suit!! This is wrong that Florida Law gives doctors, hospitals, health care providers, etc. immunity from being held accountable for their negligent actions!! How can a statute make killing someone through malpractice legal?!

Florida's hospitals are full of unmarried adults with no children under 25, and full of retired people without spouses. Young people are putting off marriage longer than they used to and we have a huge elderly population who have lost a spouse, divorced, or never married. Why does Florida law allow them to be killed by medical negligence without recourse? The answer is simple. It's because the medical, hospital, and insurance industries in Florida are very politically powerful. They lobby and they donate and they are given what they want in the name of "tort reform" and the false battle cry of eliminating frivolous lawsuits. As with most so-called "tort reforms," such legislation is not really aimed at "frivolous" cases but at legitimate cases.

Keep in mind these discriminatory provisions only apply to medical malpractice cases and not other types of negligently caused deaths. For example, if that same 60 year old described above were killed by a negligent driver, her children (even though over 24 years old) would be allowed to bring a claim to recover for their emotional damages. And the parents of that 25 year old unmarried child could recover for their emotional damages if he was run down by a motorist. You might think of it this way: if someone like you were to accidentally cause the death of someone in these socio-economic categories you could be held responsible for these types of damages to the family of the deceased person. The statute elevates only doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers to this exalted status of having virtual immunity for negligently killing some of the most defenseless members of our society, i.e., the elderly, the disabled, and the underemployed!!! Help us change this statute!

We have started a petition and a foundation after Norma Cook, The Norma Cook Foundation for anyone who would like to support this cause. ALL donations will be used to picket, petition, and change this statute to protect Florida Seniors. The Norma Cook Foundation c/o Mike Perez 24701 US HWY 19 N Ste. 102 Clearwater, FL 33763. Please call Mike Perez @ 727-639-1918 if you have any questions.

11. Declare access to uncensored and unrestricted internet a human right

Knowledge is power.

Easy, fast-access information is the key to bringing equal power to a populace that all need knowledge on current events, medicine, arithmetic and other things to survive and thrive. Easy access to knowledge has turned our world into more of a global consciousness than it has ever been.

The control of knowledge, or the restriction of knowledge and information has always given power to the wrong people. During the dark ages, when the catholic church wanted people to only believe what they told them to believe, they would destroy books and documents from civilizations all over the world so that nothing could question their doctrine.

Governments - your government, our government, every government, also benefit from the control of information because they can convince people to vote the way they want and to quietly comply to demands that without important knowledge, no one would know enough about their own human rights to question. A lot of times more elite members of society - the rich, the politically connected, those who have the most to gain by selling commercial ideas instead of information or connections to humanity - have used restrictions on knowledge and bombardment of twisted information to get what they want out of the poorer populace. An informed citizen gets their information from multiple sources and scrutinizes it heavily.

As a generation with the internet we have the option to access instant uncensored information, which is something that no generation has previously had, and something that governments don't want anyone to have if it means it can threaten their absolute power to make decisions for a populace, whether that populace is willing or not.

Governments all over the world including China, Russia, and the United States are trying to either censor or control content or access to content on the internet.

Here in the "land of the free" it started with SOPA ( "Stop Online Piracy Act") and PIPA ("PROTECT IP Act").

SOPA and PIPA were bills proposed by Congress in the guise of stopping online piracy by giving the attorney general of the United States authority to command internet service providers to shut down Domain Name Server records that point people to a site, and force Google and other search engines to shut down links to sites that the attorney General expresses official disapproval of. This was proposed so that the United States could prevent people from pirating movies, music, and other goods with copyrights belonging to corporations or businesses, meant to be sold for their profit only. However, the ability to command a website be taken down and access to information be cut off had widespread censorship implications, so activists started petitions, took to the streets, and demanded that Washington drop both bills.

So the government, instead of respecting the demand for access to uncensored and unrestricted information, decided it needed to regroup and try another tactic.

That's where the FCC, the Federal Communications Commission, comes in. While claiming to be working towards Net Neutrality, the FCC proposed, then passed rules saying service providing companies can charge content providers for faster access to their sites, potentially creating "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the internet, which would ensure that poor people or new businesses will receive less traffic if they aren't able to pay fees for faster access for their potential customers.

Internet users and activists reacted about the same way as they did to SOPA and PIPA.

In response, Democratic lawmakers proposed a bill that would stop the FCC from allowing ISP providers from creating "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the internet by charging for speed of access, but the bill neglects to address the issue of anyone claiming authority over the internet, something that belongs to the entire populace that participates in its constant creation, in the first place.

So, we've come up with a proposal of our own, to declare uncensored and unrestricted access to the internet a universal human right, and to declare the internet a collective-belonging, which means that no person or entity, whether government or corporate, has the right to declare authority over it in the first place.

14. Michael J Sutter Park Petition

Staff Sgt. Michael J. Sutter passed away at the very young age of 28 on December 26, 2003 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom.

As many of you know, Mike was raised in Tinley Park, Illinois. Where his parents still reside.

Starting at a very young age and for many years, Mike participated in Judo classes taught by his father John at The Tinley Park- Park District.

Mike was responsible for bringing home to the Park District, many trophies from his accomplishments in Judo competitions.

The entire Sutter family was devoted to the sport and to the park district. They made every team-member feel like they were apart of their family.

The dedication that they have shown to the Park District through the Judo program is remarkable.

I can remember John & Judy piling the whole Judo team in their van and personally driving them to competitions, making sure no one was left behind.

They would travel to compete near and far. From little Tinley Park all the way to New York. Bringing home many, many trophies and making Tinley proud.

Mike graduated from Andrew High School and moved on to attend Moraine Valley College.

Mike was so enthusiastic about protecting others and his community, he was taking Law Enforcement Classes with the goal of becoming a police officer.

Mike was a loyal roll model to many.

The military was Mike's life and passion. Mike joined the Army in 1994, less than a year after graduating from Andrew.

After serving our Country for eight lengthy years in the Army, Mike decided to give even more and serve in the National Guard.

Mike wanted to take his bomb defusing experience and skills, he learned while in the Army, to assist the National Guard.

On December 26, 2003 Michael ended up making the ultimate sacrifice for our country, defending our freedom....his life.

Leaving behind both of his parents, John and Judy, his brothers John and Steve and his sister Angie.

"Just another day in the office" as Mike would often say, on Dec. 26th while in Baqubah, Iraq., the day after Christmas, when many of us are at home playing with Christmas presents and enjoying family time, Mike was killed trying to disarm a homemade explosive device.

Mike was using a robot to defuse one bomb, then tried to do the same with another bomb but couldn’t get to it with the robot. He tried to defuse it manually and was a foot away when it detonated.

Mike's siblings have gone on to have children that he would be the proud uncle of. Unfortunately, his Nieces and Nephews will only know him by stories and pictures.

Tinley Park lost one of Our own when Mike died. Many of us know Mike will never be forgotten. But has he been Honored by Tinley Park in an deserving manner?

Many cities and towns all across American show tribute to their hometown Heroes by dedicating parks in their honor.

I can't think of a more suitable tribute to honor and remember Mike then by having a TP, Park dedicated and named after OUR fallen solider.

Imagine, how proud Mike's brothers and sister could feel bringing his nieces and nephews to the Michael J Sutter Park.

It is well overdue that Tinley Park substantiates to Mike's parents that their Son's sacrifice, and the sacrifice their family has made, will never be forgotten by their community.

I invite you to help demonstrate to the TP Park District that many people feel the same way.

Please sign The Michael J Sutter Park Petition to show your support to not only OUR Fallen Soldier, but to his entire family, all his friends and the generations to come.

16. Strawberry Panic 2 petition

Thanks for dropping by. This is a petition web-site for Strawberry Panic 2. It has been 8 years since Strawberry Panic aired in Japan. But even after all those years it is capable of getting new fans every day.

So most of the fans were dissapointed with the ending from Strawberry Panic, including me. I was asking myself: "And now? That was it? What will happen to Tamao and to Nagisa? Will they still remain friends? What about Rijouko and Shizuma? What happens to Shizuma when she graduates and Nagisa is still in St. Miator? So many questions are left unanswered.

And everyone is asking the same: "Will there be a second season?" Unfortunately this hasn't happened until today.

Many petitions from various fans around the world were held. But somehow it seems that the one who held this petition forgot about it.

I am here to change that. I will collect as many signs as I can get than I will send it to Madhouse. And I am not alone. We also have an official web-site were you get all the news.

17. Petition To UBC Detachment Of The RCMP

In 1985 the RCMP wanted a service road to be built to and along Wreck Beach. This would have destroyed the very beach it was meant to serve. The Wrech Beach preservation Society started a petition, without benefit of internet or social media and were still able to collect 12,144 Signatures against the road in less than 44 days. The signatures were from all over the world, but 83% of them were from the Lower Mainland, and 150 countries were also represented.

Since then subsequently in August of 1985 the Vancouver board of Parks and Recreation unanimously turned down the RCMP proposal. Police have patrolled the beach with the GVRD Rangers on a regular basis. One year recently they lined up in oppressive rows behind beach users for hours at a time, which put a damper on the free-spirited nature of Wreck Beach. They along with the GVRD, have also implemented a ban on Wreck Beach users being able to enjoy sunsets from the beach.

People are asked to leave before sunset instead of being allowed to stay for the after-glow which is 30 minutes after sunset. The Tent although well meaning would be seen as another repressive step instead of the intended community building that it’s meant to represent.

Her name was Chloe Valentine, and she was 4 years old!

During January 2012, Chloe Valentine was tortured and killed by the 2 people entrusted to love her, care for her, protect her and provide her a safe & happy home.

Over 4 days, Chloe Valentine, a 4 year old child, was forced to ride a 50 kilogram motorbike over and over and over, while Ashlee Jean Polkinghorne and Benjamin Robert McPartland sat video recording, what was to be, a very terrified, 4 year old Chloe's slow and torturous death. Laughing, as they watched Chloe crash into objects and repetitively being thrown from the motorbike, until such time little Chloe was knocked unconscious (day 4).

Little Chloe was left lying for hours, slowly dying from her horrific injuries. Google searches and Facebook accounts were checked, before '000' was finally called. Chloe Valentine's injuries were so severe that some of her family members were unable to recognize her tiny bruised and swollen body.

For their heinous crimes and treatment of this innocent child, Ashlee Jean Polkinghorne and Benjamin Robert McPartland, received a 4 year and two month non-parole jail term, out of a mere 7 years in total.

Playdom is the originator of one of the most popular hidden object games of all time - Gardens of Time. In 2010, Playdom was purchased by Disney Interactive. Playdom is Disney Interactive’s “ social games division producing games for Facebook, iOS, Android, and other emerging social and mobile platforms."

The March 2014 downsizing by Disney Interactive has placed Gardens of Time at a virtual standstill, discontinued the popular pay for ‘Inner Circle’ and has left in particular a great deal of speculation and concern by thousand upon thousands of gamers on Playdom , Facebook and other venues that Gardens of Time will be canceled.

From the beginning of Gardens of Times introduction, the game quickly became an almost viral hit on Facebook and on Playdom and while the “over 50” crowd is the games bread and butter, the human interest in the game’s popularity is why the old, the young, and the in-between love and play the game. The diversity of players is as vast as the world is different and subsequently transcends any language barrier.

This petition is to “Save Gardens of Time” and represents players of Gardens of Time not just on Facebook, but on Playdom.com and any Disney operated venue across the globe which offers the game. Each signer of this petition may make their own individual statement

25. Protest the Parole of Danny Sledge's murderer

On March 12, 1999, Eric Wayne Boyd, along with his brother Nathan Lee Boyd, brutally murdered Joseph Daniel "Danny" Sledge at The Galley restaurant in Florence, AL. On April 20, 2001, Eric was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for Felony Murder.

As of March 15, 2014, Eric has been incarcerated for 15 years for his role in this heinous crime (2 years in local custody and 13 years in state prison). Danny was stabbed multiple times, beaten, and robbed by Eric and his brother Nathan for a reported $600 and a weekend of drugs and partying. 15 years is hardly a punishment for the crime committed against Danny and his family and friends.

The parole date has been set for April 30, 2014.

Il apparaît du plus récent rapport sur les flux de paiement et des recettes minières guinéennes que seulement 13% des recettes minières sont transférées vers les préfectures, les CRD et les collectivités locales en Guinée. Les 87% de nos recettes minières sont destinées à un fonds dit "fonds d'investissement minier" dont la structure institutionnelle et le mode fonctionnement sont totalement opaques.

It takes a man to apologize for making a mistake. However, there's a difference between apology and making amends. It is not like this statement was just said out loud. It was recorded on an album that went though many people who heard these offensive lyrics, yet no took pause to raise up and say no, bad idea.

Facebook shows Drake to have 32 million followers, a net worth of 35 million dollars. These lyrics not only hurt people who must live through and with Autism, but it also influences more negative stigma these people (especially children) don't deserve. Drake, you influence millions of people, it is your responsibility to influence them correctly.

Take responsibility for your actions and use your influence to benefit the community you damaged with your hurtful and thoughtless lyrics on a song that could have been avoided.

28. Create a Class for Jazz Band

The Mighty Lobo Band of Cisco, Texas does not have the privelidge of having an actual class period (within school hours) for a Jazz Band class. We are forced to practice after school hours, which is on our own time, for upcoming contests.

There is simply not enough time able to be spent in this manner. Moreover, not all students of the current makeshift jazz band are able to stay at the school in order to practice for the events at all, forcing us to choose possibly two days out of the week for practice. We need an elective class within school hours in which jazz band students can practice altogether.

If we can get a class period during school hours, we can attend contests more confidently, and have a greater chance of placing high against other jazz bands in the region, thus reflecting greatly upon Cisco High School.
