I ask you to do your research, and see that the Mayor of Denver Michael Hancock and the Governor John Hickenlooper is trying to silence our amendment rights.
They needs to be recalled and thrown out of office. The OCCUPY DENVER movement is all I need to say.
I write to you in bitterness, anger and not a little disappointment in decision of McDonald's to restrict out menu choices before 10:30am!
Sometimes a Bacon and Egg McMuffin doesn’t quite cut it, sometimes it needs to be a Big Mac, with extra special sauce or several cheeseburgers.
Their decision to limit the menu before 10:30am to only breakfast is ruining my favorite and most important meal of the day; not to mention affecting their ability to compete with burger chains such as Hungry Jacks.
I would like to close this petition with a quote from their marketing website. "it's all about you." Well. It's not. And I'm not "lovin' it"
Transgender people are defined as people who feel they are a different gender than the sex they were born as. Job Corps is a job training facility where the students must live for 5 days a week day and night. At job corps the dormitories are separated by gender.
The current Job corps policy concerning transgender individuals is to place them in the dormitories that match their body parts.
This policy singles out transgender individuals and makes them a target for violence, bullying, and increases the likelihood of Suicide. It must be changed.
Schools in south africa are way too strict, they brutalize my culture and I have become a drop out because of south african schools. Okay if they really want I don't mind uniform, but when they start telkling you what to do with your body, piercings, tattoos and body modification is a part of my religion and they should allow that!
Stupid jobs don't employ people just because they have tattoos and piercings, even though the person is a genius, but they rather employ the egg head "normal looking one"! A police lady went to have a talk at our school, she was going on about drugs and sex, I went to ask her about homo sexual rights she told me "only if the person hits you" what a bloody stupid answer! and yet they call south africa a rainbow nation?? when racism is used verbally immediate action is taken place, some people cant get jobs, are mistreated because of their sexuality, piercings, tattoos, way of living.
I think everyone should have a right to live the way they want to!! And get the job if they do well at it not because of how they look! Society in south africa needs to open their disgusting closed little stingey shrivelled up minds and let people like me live, as long as you making my life a misery I'm gonna keep on bothering you.
The schools in south africa are disgusting and unclean, their discipline is like a military, and they are overly controlled and its distinguishing but what they learning is so unadvanced, and that they make afrikaans compulsory otherwise you cant study or have a job if you dont take afrikaans!
I'm not against afrikaans, I just dont wanna be forced to learn it after grade ten, and maths! Schools are too disciplinary and not enough learning, all they learning ias how to pray to some thing that doesn't exist, think a certain way and say "yes mam", and get overworked.
There's alot more to life than school and work, they should learn to be more flexible with homework and hours, we not machines, I know some people can work like machines but others cant! My poor friend who boards at DHS feels so brutalized and controlled he wants to kill himself or run away, he's just not coping! Im a drop out because south african schools suck!

There is no law or regulation for volunteers in New South Wales to refer to for assistance when they find that they are not being treated fairly by the management of a charity or not-for-profit organisation, or if they are not able to convince management to review its staff management practices. Some organisations have appropriate grievance policies that provide for complaints to be dealt with by independent mediation and arbitration, but such policies are not compulsory
Many volunteers find that they are bullied and their rights not protected. They have no right to seek help from the Privacy Commissioner, the Ombudsman, or the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). The Department of Fair Trading has jurisdiction over many charities under the Associations Act, but can only act if there is a breach of the Act. The Department has no power to intervene if there are breaches of the Constitution, Code of Conduct or grievance policies. Some charities take advantage of this lack of government power, knowing that the Government cannot intervene. This causes many volunteer workers to end up as involuntary unemployed.
Volunteer work is still work. Workers that receive wages have options when they are unfairly treated by bosses, but volunteer workers can't do anything about their employers. We call on government to protect all those dedicated volunteer workers who give their time, energy, and money in service to others.

Most Americans are aware that animals are abused and neglected daily. It is a saddening fact. There are many groups and organizations who aim to stop this cruelty to animals, such as the ASPCA. However, domestic animal abuse is not the only problem. There is another terribly depressing issue, which completely violates animal rights. Worse yet, our American government is doing very close to nothing to stop it. This is exactly why we, as citizens of the United States of America, must speak up and act out, in order to call on our government to fix these problems.
Overpopulation is a huge problem. Dogs and cats are overpopulated as is, yet greedy breeders and puppy mill owners get more and more each and every day, for the sole purpose of money. Although some puppy mills and breeders might actually care, many are careless when it comes to the wellbeing of the animals; they only want their money. As a result of this greed, numbers of euthanized animals are skyrocketing each year.
There are statistics now that in recent years, seven to eight million dogs and cats wound up in animal shelters. Of that ridiculously high number, three to four million were euthanized by the shelter due to overpopulation or disease. This is an absolutely outrageous HALF of the dogs and cats who go to a "shelter" annually and end up dead. All because said breeders and puppy mill owners continue to make more.
Victorian Citizens are being forced to have Smartmeters installed without consultation or choice, in total disregard for what they believe are their human rights:
* to protection from hazards to their health and safety;
* to choose what is installed in their homes;
* to protection of their economic interests;
* to protection of their privacy;
* to access to adequate information to enable the right to making informed choices according to individual wishes and needs.
There are many concerns regarding smart meters including;
* health issues, including radiation;
* additional cost on households,
* the additional costs of time of use tariffs would impose on households;
* the accuracy of smart meters and the inability of households to check energy consumption levels;
* that installers of smart meters may not be appropriately qualified;
* individuals making it known that they did not want a smart meter installed at their property, or wanted their meter removed being totally disregarded
* problems with wiring, the possibility of fires developing and the loss of appliances following installation and consumers rights for replacement of their assets and appliances
* insurance concerns
* privacy of data collected and concerns over hacking of the system to name the main concerns
For more details on concerns and links to other sites go to stopsmartmeters.com.au and register your details to receive regular updates. More info also at www.stopsmartmeters.com.au
We look forward to your support and passing this to other Victorian Citizens concerned about their basic rights.
It is the civic duty of every citizen to hold their government accountable when it betrays the public trust and when it demonstrably fails to exercise its prescribed powers. When those elected behave as though they are above the law and abandon their Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution, it remains for the people to demand justice for the wrongs committed against them.
The Indian Trail Town Council, and staff, have continued to engage in unethical, unlawful, immoral, and illegal actions. The following list of offenses provides sufficient probable cause to investigate the culture of corruption that pervades local government, which endangers the people's unalienable rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The intent of this petition is to begin the process of restoring an open and transparent government to the Town of Indian Trail, North Carolina.

Students should have the right of an extra day off on weekends or no homework and tests due the next day. The weekends are suppressed to be breaks, but students keep receiving homework assignments on Friday preventing them from having a day off, and this petition is not geared towards a lecture on time management.
This should be made a law to protect established relationships between grandkids and all grandparents.
If something happens to the parents. The state wants grandparents to raise the child. Why do we not have rights to visit our grandchildren.
The UK Disabled Community needs to send a clear and unequivocal message in one unified voice to call on the Coalition Government to see us all as equal members of society and not treat us as a tool to steal our disability benefits and services to bail out the Country in this time of Financial Crisis.
Can we set a precedence to get 1 million signatures so that the Coalition Government will have no option but to take note of us and not just ignore or deflect our arguments & comments and to stop building this climate of hate against disabled people.
Please leave a question for your Local MP to pose to the Coalition Government, which we will add to the Petition when we deliver it to No.10.
We are declaring a moral separation from the current ruling administration and the policies it is currently enacting which is diminishing our liberties.
Moral Declaration simply means:
- Declaring our willingness and our ability to no longer support the current administrations decisions.
- Asserting our stance under ‘Redress of Grievances’.
- Affirming that in good faith and trust-
- We are done giving them moral support!
• We are presenting the new Moral Declaration of Independence with grievances in accordance with the United States Constitution and current U.S. Code of Law.
• We openly recognize that we have shared the intent and the spirit of the original Declaration of Independence.
• The original document was a declaration of war; however, at this time that is not the direction that America can withstand.
• Its strength and spirit is as viable today as when first written. (We intentionally utilized much of the original writings.)
• This document, as a petition with signatures will be taken to and registered in Washington D.C.
The cornerstone of our constitutional Republic has been the Declaration of Independence. The men who founded this great nation knew that those who rule must be of the character that recognizes that we will all stand before the God of heaven and be held accountable. These founders also knew that the ruling class often forgets this fact. We have been given the right to reset to the original intent of this founding document.
Now is the time… for all patriotic citizens to stand up and be counted.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12).
This petition is to request sending a UN neutral committee to Bahrain, and we refuse the committee that is appointed by the king of Bahrain as we consider him as a part of the problem and we believe that him and his family are responsible of the violations of human rights.

This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in a previous session of Congress. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed bills and resolutions that haven't passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not come up for debate under a new number in the next session.
Nov 2, 2007: House Judiciary: Referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.
See the Related Legislation page for other bills related to this one and a list of subject terms that have been applied to this bill. Sometimes the text of one bill or resolution is incorporated into another, and in those cases the original bill or resolution, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned.
A number of studies show that THC provides medical benefits for cancer and AIDS patients by increasing appetite and decreasing nausea. It has also been shown to assist some glaucoma patients by reducing pressure within the eye, and is used in the form of cannabis by a number of multiple sclerosis patients, who use it to alleviate neuropathic pain and spasticity. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is currently supporting further research into these uses.
In August 2009 a phase IV clinical trial by the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel was started to investigate the effects of THC on post-traumatic stress disorders. THC and other cannabinoid agonists have been shown to be beneficial both in open label studies, as well as in laboratory experiments with animals to ameliorate post-traumatic stress disorders.
Preliminary research on synthetic THC has been conducted on patients with Tourette syndrome, with results suggesting that it may help in reducing nervous tics and urges by a significant degree. Research on twelve patients showed that Marinol reduced tics with no significant adverse effects. A six-week controlled study on 24 patients showed that the patients taking dronabinol had a significant reduction in tic severity without serious adverse effects. More significant reduction in tic severity was reported with longer treatment. No detrimental effects on cognitive functioning and a trend towards improvement in cognitive functioning were reported during and after treatment.
Dronabinol's usefulness as a treatment for TS cannot be determined until/unless longer controlled studies on larger samples are undertaken. Research on THC has shown that Cannabinoid receptors are responsible for mediated inhibition of dopamine release in the retina. A growing number of people around the world and in Canada are ingesting Hemp Oil, THC, and curing themselves of life threatening Cancers and other diseases in weeks.
Society, media, and the judicial system in Canada are constantly reinforcing myths and stereotypes about rape. These myths and stereotypes result in victim blaming and sex shaming rather than placing responsibility on the perpetrators of these crimes.
The goal of this petition is call on the federal government to take this issue seriously, restore funding to feminist initiatives and create a national strategy to end violence against women in collaboration with women's groups.
We invite you to sign this petition calling for the the federal government of Canada to make meaningful change to promote women’s equality.
One animal rights campaigner did not approve of how animals were being treated at a certain place, so she joined a peaceful protest and within seconds the police arrived. Despite the best efforts of the other campaigners, this woman landed with broken legs and arms and just lies in bed and cries herself to sleep most nights.
All they were doing is peacefully and legally saying no. Isn't it about time that we started targetting the ones that actually ARE extremists and not peaceful campaigners?
We are a group of rights activists from UK and would like bring to your notice an urgent matter which has gone unnoticed.
The deportation of failed Disabled women asylum seekers irrespective of which ever country they belong to should be stopped as it is a straight violation of basic human rights. It is extremely inhuman to send back disabled women asylum seekers as they already have lot to cope with. Rules are for human beings and especially should be in favour of humans for whom life has not been fair.
Imagine a paraplegics life who is being deported and sent back to a country where she may face ill treatment or destitution. Especially disabled women asylum seekers are more vulnerable in their countries due to lack of amenities and possible exploitation by mentally sick and perverted people apart from their possible persecutors.
The inhuman practice or disregard and insensitiveness towards failed disabled woman asylum seekers should be immediately stopped and also their detention. The care of these failed disabled woman asylum seekers should be entrusted to other able bodied asylum seekers (Women) under the community service work . This will greatly reduce the pressure on the system and people from the same backgrounds can also integrate easily reducing the isolation stress. The aim is that we build a much more humane society with decrease in the burden on the present infrastructure and manpower.
UK has ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2009 but in practice it is slipping on the issue of the world's most vulnerable ones- DISABLED WOMEN ASYLUM SEEKERS and especially the ones who have failed. It has been learnt that UKBA ( United Kingdom Border Agency) has shown utter insensitivity towards them.
We urge you to protect the disabled women asylum seekers and not to be deported irrespective of any country they belong to. We request you to undertake this very seriously as the human rights levels in the civilised world are slowly decaying. It is the first world where we need to contain the basic degradation of human rights which goes unnoticed due to the turmoil around the world.
We request you to write and pursue this matter with Mr David Cameron,PM of Uk, Mr. Nick Clegg, Deputy PM of UK and also Ms. Theresa May , Home secretary of state. Infact deportation of Disabled Women Asylum seekers should be stopped worldwide inorder to restore the basic human rights values to the ones who need them the most.
Looking forward to a positive development and a assertive action to stop the deportation of Disabled women asylum seekers.
Thanks and regards,
Fathers and Mothers who have been convicted of child cruelty to their children still have contact in a contact centres or have another member of their family supervise the visit in their own home. This has to stop now.
If they abuse the children in a contact centre or whilst supported or supervised the courts still give them access! The contact centres say they did not see anything as they are busy watching up to 10 children coupled with 10 fathers or mothers, if one needs the toilet that is makes up to 38 people to be watched during that time, this is when the parent strikes out at the kids, whisper in their ears and the abuse starts all over again. Nobody but nobody is doing anything to stop this.
It is unbelievable that this country would send a victim to the offender week after week to be abused. The courts don’t hear the children telling them of horrendous things of bruises on their little bodies or see tiny children aged 2 And 3 lift their tops to show bruises.
Please help me to change the law. No contact of any description for any parent convicted of any violent or sexual offence to their children until the child is 18 years of age. Sign my petition for our kid’s sake!
South Carolina dose not have any nude or clothing optional beach areas and really needs one. South Carolina's Nudity Laws are as follows:
OFFENSES AGAINST MORALITY AND DECENCY
SECTION 16-15-130. Indecent exposure; breastfeeding.
(A)(1) It is unlawful for a person to wilfully, maliciously, and indecently expose his person in a public place, on property of others, or to the view of any person on a street or highway.
(2) This subsection does not apply to a woman who breastfeeds her own child in a public place, on property of others, to the view of any person on a street or highway, or any other place where a woman and her child are authorized to be.
(B) A person who violates the provisions of subsection (A)(1) is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
We need to work to repeal these laws and strengthen the naturist movement for years to come.
On university campuses, students with medical marijuana cards are unprotected; many students who live on campus do not have access to proper facilities for holding their marijuana legally because of the on-campus policies that are in effect.
This is due in part to the fact that California universities receive federal funding with the condition that they keep a "Drug-Free" campus - meaning students who use medicinal marijuana are especially targeted, despite what the state law allows.
Students with medical marijuana cards who are caught with marijuana on campus are threatened with severe punishments. For freshman and other on campus residents, they run the risk of losing their housing even for a first offense. The current policies on campus allow for residential advisors to key into rooms and invade the privacy of students in search of marijuana and paraphernalia related to its use.
Students who use marijuana for medical reasons are also faced with difficulties in regard to zoning laws. Locations are not made easily available for students to use their medicine and they risk further legal consequences by using it in those areas that surround campus and are surrounded by other Chico schools.
Many United States citizens are being implanted and monitored and controlled with biochips, DNA chips, synthetic Biology and other forms of devices that cause pain, steal memories and intelligence for the sole purpose of subverting the human for use as a weapon against humanity.
Right in the middle of Europe, millions of street animals are dying year in year out: in killing camps who call themselves animal shelters, or in “freedom” – of hunger, cold, diseases, poison.
Granted, you’ll find local laws forbidding the above – but often enough neither local authorities nor elements of the executive authorities do comply with the laws. Even the most barbarian cruelties to animals go without prosecution because it is not avenged, as a rule.
On December 1st, 2009 the treaty of Lisbon (so-called EU reformation treaty) became effective. The major agreement states that the Union and its member states have to take account of the well-being of the animals as feeling beings.
But the ratification of this treaty does not automatically imply the end of the brute widespread deaths.
This is why we need to suit the action to the word.
Recently a bill has been introduced by South Australian Labor MLC Ian Hunter and Greens MLC Tammy Frank to legalise same-sex marriage. This petition aims to support this bill, giving gay couples the rights they deserve.
Many forward thinking countries recognise that the gay community should have the same opportunities to express their love and commitment.
However, Australia only recognises domestic partnerships. With your support, South Australia can lead the way to equality.
Dear Safe Energy Advocate,
We, the undersigned safe energy advocates, have been
speaking out about the risks and dangers posed by nuclear
power for years – many since before the 1986 Chornobyl
and 1979 Three Mile Island accidents as well as the
hundreds of other radioactive releases, unplanned shut-
downs, and other mishaps that have continuously plagued
both the U.S. and the international nuclear industries since
While nuclear power’s unacceptable safety, environmental,
public health, economic, and national security risks should
have been self-evident long before now, the latest
unfolding nuclear disaster in Japan once again underscores
Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
potential “acts of God.”
Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
instances of “human error.”
Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all types
of “mechanical malfunction.”
Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
forms of “terrorist attack.”
There is no such thing as “safe” nuclear power.
There is no such thing as “clean” nuclear power.
There is no such thing as “cheap” nuclear power.
Consequently, all proposed governmental financial and
regulatory incentives for new nuclear plant construction -
including loan guarantees, accelerated licensing, and
inclusion in a “clean energy standard” - should be rejected,
and no new reactors should be built.
Existing nuclear reactors should be phased out as rapidly as
possible, beginning with the oldest and/or most unsafe,
and no presently-licensed reactors should have their
operating lives extended.
Safety standards for existing reactors should be
substantially tightened while they continue to operate and
federal nuclear funding should be redirected to the orderly
phase-out of those reactors as well as the safe
decommissioning of closed reactors and disposal of
National energy policy and funding should be refocused on
greatly improved energy efficiency and the rapid
deployment of renewable energy sources which are far
cleaner, safer, and cheaper than nuclear power.
Sincerely, Mark R. Bielby BA.s.d.s
Medical Cannabis exemptees continue to be prosecuted under law despite being in compliance with both Section 4 of the CDSA and Section 11 of the Medical Marijuana Access Regulations(SOR-2001-227).
Health Canada is currently quoted at 8-10 weeks for processing of applications. This leaves those who require medical cannabis vulnerable to violations to our inalienable rights guaranteed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Please sign this petition if you oppose the use of fluoride in the water supply of Greater Sudbury.
A great deal of people wish to have fluoride removed from their local water supply, but also globally.
Please sign this petition if you oppose water fluoridation.
Being restricted from showing the ones you care about affection is wrong. Human beings thrive on one another to survive, we need affection to live.
Having that taken away and not being given a legitimate excuse as to why it is being taken away, is a violation of our rights.
The reason for outrageous medical cost in America is simple: Prohibitive Regulation = Prohibitive Cost.
Severe licensing restrictions orchestrated by doctors and enacted by legislators to limit competition have created a critical artificial shortage of doctors; and additional ludicrous, stifling regulation of all aspects of the medical industry has pushed the cost of medical services well beyond the financial means of much of the population.
