Consumers choose foods free of animal products for many reasons. Scientific evidence suggests the production of plant-based food contributes significantly less to environmental damage and climate change than animal farming.
Many religions require devotees to adhere to meat and dairy free diets during certain celebrations. People often choose a diet free of animal products for ethical reasons as they don't agree with modern factory farming methods. Health is another major factor. A plant-based diet is completely free from cholesterol.
With plant-based food choices becoming increasingly popular amongst UK consumers, it is time for major food suppliers such as Sainsbury's to answer this call for more vegan choices in their aisles. Brands such as Quorn and Linda McCartney have monopolised UK stores but very few of their items cater to people who want animal-free food.
Sign the petition to urge Sainsbury's to carry vegan food. The petition will be sent to Sainsbury's on your behalf.
You can also email the following Sainsbury's contact to strengthen your request:

Britain is now in a Double-Dip recession. Now we have a four day weekend and many other bank holidays due to the royal family. This cannot be helping local businesses, and the economy will get worse.
If we ditch the monarchy perhaps we can focus our efforts on better things to boost the economy, for example we could sell the castles and royal homes as tourist attractions, or they could be used to shelter those who don't have homes in Britain at the moment, the royal family can get proper jobs to help or get the normal retirement money like everyone else.
In the 21st century we should not have "Royal" people, everyone is equal, most other monarchy's are now gone and they're probably doing a lot better than we are.
Dangerous Dogs Act (DDA) 1991 means that it is illegal to own an American Pit Bull Terrier in the United Kingdom.
However, if the dog is not seen to be dangerous by the courts it can be returned to its owner if they can prove the owner is not using the dog for fighting, or has ill treated the dog.
The law at the moment does not allow harmless Pit bulls to be re-homed, and if the owner is not seemed fit to own the dog, the American Bull Terrier will be destroyed by lethal injection.
Most of these Pit bulls are family loving pets born into the wrong home.
Any breed of dog can become dangerous in the hands of the wrong owner, and most dogs ill treated, or in a bad environment, and even aggressive dogs can be rehabilitated and re-homed to the right owner
So why can't perfectly harmless Pit bulls find a loving home as well?
Please sign this petition if you agree that the U.K law should change, and that the American Pit bull can be re-homed if proven harmless and not destroyed.
I'm starting off this petition as a huge and epic request not just from a huge metallica fan but a fan of metal. I run and organise a rock/metal night at DeBees Music Bar in a small town of Winsford, Cheshire, UK and i am opening up this offer to James, Lars, Kirk and Robert to play this venue before taking the stage at the Download Festival, Donington, UK.
You may have heard this from thousands of fans from around the world but at least acknoledge this petition to say yay or nay, i don't have much money but will do ANYTHING to make this happen, so please respone to the e-mail address and will give more info on request.
GTA has been in a global phenomenom for since 1997, it has featured locations based on New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. Not to mention smaller locations such as Chinatown, New Jersey and London in 1969.
The time has come to inject some international flavour to the series by bringing it to the United Kingdom and more importantly Manchester.
Mohammad-Amin Noorbehesht, a known Iranian political activist, has now arrived to the UK and submitted his claim for asylum under 1951 Geneva Refugee Convention.
Whilst in Iran, Amin had been subject to imprisonment, torture and other ill-treatments of such nature and after he left the country, the authorities captured and imprisoned his brother, too. He has spent a significant amount of time in hospitals in order to improve his physical condition. There are various medical reports available to support this claim. Amin is still suffering from miscellaneous and complex physical difficulties as well as post traumatic stress disorder as a result of those imprisonments and tortures. Amin is in urgent need of assistance and hospital treatment.
Whilst his previous asylum claim in the UK was under consideration, Amin left the country in order to assist his brother to come to the UK. Despite the fact that this was in breach of the UKBA asylum conditions, he saw no other possibilities to save another human being’s life, an attempt which did not eventually yield a successful result. On his way back, he was captured and imprisoned in several countries, including Switzerland and the Netherlands. Within both of which he submitted a fresh claim of asylum, however, under Dublin Regulation Act 2003, Amin was deported to his first point of entry to the European Union, that is, the United Kingdom.
The Government opened family courts up to greater media scrutiny, in response to criticism that the current set up is overly secretive in April 2009. This was approved by Parliament. Journalists are able to attend family court hearings in county courts and the High Court from 27 April 2009.
"The provisions in the Children, Schools and Families Act have been universally condemned and should be abolished, the Justice Select Committee says. Instead, ministers should redraft proposals to increase transparency in the family courts, putting the views of children centre stage."
The subject of newspaper reporting of cases heard in the high court namely to do with private and public law. The Children Act 2004 para 251. Section 62(1) amends section 97 of the Children Act 1989 to make clear that the publication of material from family proceedings which is intended, or likely, to identify any child as being involved in such proceedings (or the address or school of such a child) is only prohibited in relation to publication of information to the public or any section of the public. In effect, this means that passing on information identifying, or likely to identify, a child (his school or his address) as being involved in court proceedings to an individual.
The Court of Appeal has decided that the prohibition from identifying children which section 97 of the Children Act 1989 provides only applies whilst the proceedings relating to the child in question are in progress. Once the proceedings have concluded, the protection given by the Act comes to an end, the entitlement to anonymity thereafter being dependent upon an exercise in balancing the Convention rights of those involved. http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/media/media-releases/2006/news-release-1806
Although statistics are published about cases that pass through the courts, these in their nature cannot answer claims that abuses of the system are not identified and that there are effectively no quality controls.
I am a mother of one. I have had my trials and tribulations being a parent, just as all parents have. Supporting my child in a positive direction; encouraging little one to do well in school and understand the diversities of others. My child and I are the victims of racial harassment promoted by the family court system and rubber stamped by our country. My family case is to do racial harassment by our country. Everyone has a unique story to tell. This is my own. http://wp.me/pXLdg-iY
My Daughter has one kidney, which was damaged when she was born. Her medical records reveal that it was I who nurtured her to recovery. The Doctor sang my praises. Trauma promotes ill health in later life. Furthermore I had eight miscarriages, before little one was born. I was beaten up by the police so they could take her and the one social worker who was in attendance stood there and watched, as my daughter looked on from the middle of the room as we fought rolling around on my settee. There were a number of police officers present.
UK FAMILY COURT JUDGES VIOLATE AND DENY HUMAN RIGHTS OF CHILDREN - There is a clear need to increase transparency in the family courts, putting the views of children centre stage. Once a child is proven to be 'Gillick' competent the child must be allowed to attend Court to give their views to a Judge. Guardians ad litem should not in any circumstance give evidence on behalf of a child that will decide the fate of the child. The Court have a duty to prevent hearsay evidence. It is imperative that Parliament quash the power of Guardians ad litem decision to admit the hearsay of a child as evidence in Private and Public family law matters. The more serious the allegation, the greater the importance of ensuring that the accused parent(s) is afforded fair and proper procedural safeguards in civil and criminal matters. There is no public interest in a wrong result. This must include 'Private and Public' Law cases.
That it is fair to admit the hearsay evidence of a child and a Judge's decision to admit it is irrational and constituted a breach of the claimant's Article 6(1) right to a fair hearing and cannot stand.
Qualitative methods produce information only on the particular cases studied, and any more general conclusions are only hypotheses. Quantitative methods can be used to verify, which of such hypotheses are true. This is what this petition is about.

On Sunday 21 February BBC Persian Television, on the occasion of “The International Mother Language Day” dedicated “Nobat-e Shoma”, its most popular programme to the current state of non-official (vernacular) languages in Iran and Afghanistan.
The BBC presenter as well as its official website chose to use the term “Local” instead of vernacular or non-official languages thus announcing the programme: “How Is the State Of Local Languages in Your Country?”
We are confident that the management of the BBC would not wish to be party to this injustice. We therefore feel that we are justified to ask them to issue a public statement to acknowledge their error and perhaps to apologies to the non-Persian communities in Iran.
A TOMBSTONE FOR THE HISTORIC ENVIRONMENT NOT A MILESTONE
On 24 July the Department of Communities and Local Government issued a press release, saying that the newly proposed national policy on conservation was ready for public consultation. The Consultation concludes 30th October 2009.
It all sounded wonderful, John Healey, the Housing and Planning Minister said that the new policy would make the most of the nation’s historic assets across the country: “we need to conserve and protect our historic assets for future generations.”
However, if this policy is agreed, the opposite will happen, developers will be able to drive a coach and horses through any heritage and conservation protection – it is a developers’ charter. This new policy dismantles all the heritage and conservation protection which the current policy provides.
Why? The current policy PPG15, makes it clear that when a planning application is decided and everything is taken into consideration, then the issues of heritage and conservation can take precedence because of the stated benefits they provide and because historic assets are often irreplaceable. For example, PPG 15 3.19 states that “subjective claims for the architectural merits of proposed replacement buildings should NOT in themselves be held to justify demolition of any listed building.”
The proposed new policy PPS 15 HE9.10 says: “Where loss of significance is justified on the merits of new development ....”. HE 9.8 says: “it can be demonstrated that the material harm to or removal of significance is outweighed by the wider social, economic and environmental benefits, including climate change, that will be delivered by the proposed development.” [The consultation document defines significance as: “The value of a place to this and future generations because of its heritage interest. That may be archaeological, architectural, artistic or historic.]
This means that planning departments can put social, economic and environmental considerations above those of heritage and conservation, opening up the floodgates to unsuitable development, and PPS15 says nothing about the innate value of historic buildings. For example, we are told that historic buildings can be lost to reduce carbon emissions with no mention of the innate sustainability of retaining historic buildings and we are told that historic buildings can be replaced to achieve social benefits with no mention of the social and economic benefits of our heritage.
Local Authorities will get the short term gain of meeting government targets, while the community loses the long term gain provided by living with heritage. The proposed new policy ignores the innate value of our historic environment and the social benefits that it provides – a civic pride, sense of identity, place, culture, history.
Culture Minister Barbara Follett said: “Historic places are a vital part of living communities. They inspire and delight those who work in them .... This is a major milestone in the Government’s Heritage Protection Reform.” Not a major milestone but a major tombstone.
Don’t be duped by the government – there is a guided consultation available on the internet see:

Without the right to work, asylum seekers are paralyzed economically, psychologically, intellectually and socially. This leads us to confusion which leads to stress and eventually to extreme forms of depression. It feels like the government has given up on our lives. This has a negative impact on the progression of the nation and giving up on the lives of asylum seekers feels like giving up on the nation.
“My name is Adam and I come from Darfur, Sudan. I would like to tell you about the Brighter Futures’ campaign for asylum seekers to have the right to work. I want to tell you about this because I know what life looks like for people like me who escaped from genocide in Darfur. The Home Office takes too long to decide our cases – and when you know your story is true this is very hard. This means you’re just staying at home, and you get bored with the TV. You can’t work – you see yourself growing up but you can’t do anything with your life. We’d like permission to work for everyone who’s been here for more than six months. If they don’t change this today, tomorrow for me will be too late.” Adam Teneh, 19, from Darfur
Brighter Futures is a self advocacy group for young asylum seekers and refugees, who are campaigning for all young asylum seekers aged 16 and over to have the right to work from six months after arriving in the UK. Brighter Futures is also calling for the Home Office to make it easier for young asylum seekers who do have the right to work to prove this.
We believe asylum seekers should have the right to work because:
• We need financial independence to satisfy our basic needs such as food, shelter, transport and education.
• We can then contribute to the economy through taxes.
• We can then relieve the burden on the benefits system.
• We can then integrate better with our local communities.
• We can change the image of asylum seekers - we want human dignity and respect.
• It enables the Government to reduce social problems such as asylum seekers being exploited by having to work illegally.
Finally, we get to grow financially, intellectually, emotionally and in confidence - as every human being has the right to for a brighter future.
We hope that this petition will compel the government to take a positive policy decision rather than believing the myths about asylum seekers. If the government truly believes in human rights, they must understand that not being able to work feels like the loss of our lives. Understanding the situation and taking into account these issues, we hope you will support our campaign.

The impact of livestock on human health, the environment, world grain and water security and climate change has never been more clear.
With the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stressing our planetary peril with ever increasing urgency, the recognition of the significant role of factory farming in the genesis of swine flu, and new research by the Global Humanitarian Forum (GHF) stating that 315,000 people per year die as a result of climate change (with another 325 million affected), it is time to let our leaders know that we are ready to do anything we can to alleviate these crises and help the world.
By pledging to keep Mondays Meat-free, we can make a sure start. Join Sir Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney as they too are promoting Meat Free Monday to encourage people to avoid meat once a week. Check out Sir Paul's message here: http://www.supportmfm.org/
END WORLD HUNGER
If you want to stop 1 billion people from going hungry each day; If you want to stop the needless deaths taking place every 5 seconds due to starvation then a vegan lifestyle is the solution to solve these dier diet-driven situations resulting from the inefficient use of resources directed towards animal agriculture. Grain currently fed to livestock is enough to feed ２ billion people. According to a recent report by Compassion in World Farming, "[c]rops that could be used to feed the hungry are instead being used to fatten animals raised for food." It takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of edible animal flesh.
Let's show the UK government and the European Union that we are ready and willing to act, and support the Earth saving and humanitarian concept of Meat-free Mondays.
This petition will be forwarded to Gordon Brown and to influential members of DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs) in the UK plus the President of the European Parliament, the President of the European Commission, the Directorate-General for the Environment (of the European Commission) and the Directorate-General for Health and Consumer Protection (of the European Commission).
The Meat Free Mondays petition in the European Union and the United Kingdom (UK) asking UK & Gordon Brown, DEFRA as well as the President of the European Parliament, the President of the European Commission, the Directorate-General for the Environment (of the European Commission) and the Directorate-General for Health and Consumer Protection (of the European Commission) to support Meat-free Mondays was written by Concerned_Citizen and is hosted free of charge at GoPetition.
Scop: Să-i ceară primului ministru Gordon Brown din Anglia, DEFRA şi la fel şi Uniunii Europene să sprijine iniţiativa Ziua de Luni fără Carne!
Impactul zootehniei asupra sănătăţii umane, mediului, producţiei de grâne a lumii şi securităţii apei nu a fost niciodată aşa de evident.
În timp ce Panelul Interguvernamental pentru Schimbarea Climei stresează cu şi mare urgenţă riscul planetei noastre, recunoaşterea rolului semnificativ al fermelor industriale în geneza gripei porcine, alături de cercetări noi de la Forumul Global Umanitar (GHF) care arată că 315.000 de oameni mor anual din cauza schimbării climei (alături de alţi 320 milioane afectaţi), este timpul acum să le spunem liderilor noştri că noi suntem gata să facem orice ca să ameliorăm aceste crize şi să ajutăm lumea.
Prin a promite să ţinem Lunea Fără Carne, noi punem bazele unui început sigur. Veniţi alături de Sir Paul, Mary şi Stella McCartney care promovează Lunea Fără Carne, ca să încurajeze oamenii să nu consume carne o zi pe săptămână. Urmăriţi mesajul lui Paul McCartney aici: http://www.supportmfm.org/
PUNEŢI CAPĂT FOAMETEI ÎN LUME
Dacă vreţi să opriţi 1 miliard de oameni să sufere de foame zilnic, dacă vreţi să opriţi decesele inutile care au loc la fiecare 5 secunde din cauza foametei, atunci un stil de viaţă de post (vegan) este soluţia pentru a rezolva aceste situaţii fatale din cauza alimentaţiei, care duc la folosirea ineficientă a resurselor, care sunt îndreptate spre agricultura animală. Grânele date acum animalelor sunt suficiente ca să hrănească 2 miliarde de oameni. După un raport recent de la Compasiunea în Fermele Lumii: “recoltele care ar putea fi folosite să-i hrănească pe cei înfometaţi, sunt folosite în schimb la îngrăşarea animalelor crescute pentru carne.” Se cer aproape 8 kg de grâne să produci aproape 0,5kg de carne de animal comestibilă.
Haideţi să le arătăm guvernelor din Anglia şi din Uniunea Europeană că noi suntem gata şi dorim să acţionăm şi să sprijinim idea umanitară şi salvatoare al lumii - „Lunea Fără Carne”.
Această petiţie va fi trimisă primului ministru Gordon Brown şi membrilor cu influenţă din DEFRA (Departamentul Afacerilor Rurale, ale Mediului şi Hranei) din Anglia, Preşedintelui Parlamentului European, Preşedintelui Comisiei Europene, Directoratului General pentru Mediu (din Comisia Europeană) şi Directoratului General pentru Sănătate şi Protecţia Consumatorului (din Comisia Europeană).
Daţi glas voinţei voastre şi fiţi primii din prietenii voştri care să semnaţi!
Petiţia Lunea Fără Carne din Uniunea Europeană şi Anglia (UK) care îi cere Angliei şi primului ministru Gordon Brown şi DEFRA, Preşedintelui Parlamentului European, Preşedintelui Comisiei Europene, Directoratului General pentru Mediu (din Comisia Europeană) şi Directoratului General pentru Sănătate şi Protecţia Consumatorului (din Comisia Europeană) să sprijine iniţiativa Lunea Fără Carne, a fost scrisă de Cetăţeanul Îngrijorat şi este înscrisă gratuit la GoPetition.
On 5 May 2005 the House of Lords delivered a judgment on the matter of ‘N’ ( UKHL31). It ruled that deportation of a person living with HIV to a country where s/he was unlikely to receive adequate HIV treatment was not incompatible with their right to be free of inhumane treatment under Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. In concluding their written judgment, the Lords made it clear that the Home Office can exercise discretion in deciding not to return such individuals to their home countries, but that if it decides on deportation, it will not be operating in breach of human rights legislation. The European Courts for Human Rights reinforced this position in May 2008.
In the view of a number of HIV advocates, this decision essentially authorises many HIV-positive people living in the UK to be removed to their countries of origin without access to lifesaving treatment.
The African HIV Policy Network (AHPN) believes that there is a clear contradiction between the UK's policy aim of universal access to HIV treatment for all those who need it by 2010 and the removal of people living with HIV who are on treatment to countries where treatment is not readily available or affordable.
The withdrawal of treatment increases the body's vulnerability to opportunistic infection and will result in drastically shortened life expectancy.
There are strong public health arguments for allowing a concession. Those awaiting removal may go underground and fail to keep appointments resulting in an increased risk of opportunistic infection with the need for emergency treatment and an increased risk of onward transmission.
The UK is a signatory to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Article 12(1) requires states to ‘recognise the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health’.
The European Commission is proposing to include recreational fishing in the Common Fisheries Policy. This means that sea anglers will be forced to keep records of all fish they catch. All boats which are used to catch fish, even if only once a year, will have to be registered as fishing vessels under the Common Fisheries Policy.
Due to the Common Fisheries Policy, over TWO million tonnes of fish are thrown back into the sea every year because they are over quota, the wrong species or are simply not worth enough money when sold. Recreational fishing is not the cause of failing fish stocks and shouldn't be targeted as such.
17. An Cafe Uk Tour!

If we get loads of signitures, they might come and tour over here for us.
Sign and spread this petition wherever Cafekkos may be and let's hope that they tour here again!
The UK homes some of the greatest fans on the planet. Each year thousands of bands come from overseas to experience British festivals and concerts.
The fans here in the UK [myself included] are reasonably content with the amount of exposure our festivals get; clearly shown by their popularity.
However the fact cannot be ignored that the Warped Tour is one, if not THE, greatest tour on Earth. It is for this reason many believe its excellence should be geographically broadened. the UK would provide the perfect spot for the evolution of the Warped Tour to begin.
This group is a petition to Facebook to Create Proper UK County Networks.
In doing so, FB will finally be recognizing the UK as a nation (we are currently listed as Great Britain).
At the moment, USA and Canada have State Networks, with major towns associated with each network. Yet in our list, there is one county listed (West Midlands) and (apart from Wales) the rest are a few cities. There is no Network for England or Scotland and poor old Northern Ireland has been relegated to 'networks elsewhere'.
It is a big mess and, despite being continuously asked to sort it out, Facebook has left it that way for several years.
This month, Mr Stuart Bower, a United Kingdom Independence Party member challenged the UK government in a UK County Court on its failure to keep to its promise that there would be a referendum on the EU Treaty.
He accused government ministers of breach of contract, but the court ruled that a manifesto (promise of a political party to the electorate) was a political, not legal act. As such, it could not be challenged in any court as it was a long-establish part of the English common law that political manifestos do not create legitimate expectations.
What this judgment means is that political parties have always had a free hand to lie to us to get our vote and once they are in there is no legal redress available to us if they did in fact lie to get in.
In times when our country is being committed to wars that the majority of us do not support and when more and more laws are being passed that seriously undermine our personal security, freedom and privacy, it is important that this legal principle giving immunity to politicians for their misdeeds is dis-established.
Generally, it is simply beyond the countenance of anyone thinking that we in Britain support democracy and freedom when those we elect in power are free to lie to us and do so on a frequent and grand scale, on what they will do, or won’t do with total immunity from any legal redress by those they made the promise to – us!
This petition is for a change in the laws of our country to enable political manifesto to be regarded by the courts as promises to the electorate which can be redressed by legal action in our courts.
FOR 300 YEARS SCOTLAND HAS BEEN RULED BY A FOREIGN LAND, ENGLAND. I LIKE MANY BELIEVE IT IS TIME WE BECAME A NATION ONCE AGAIN.

WE SHOULD BE IN CONTROL OF OUR OWN LAND, OUR OWN RESOURCES, OUR OWN COUNTRY!!!
All eight Democratic contenders for the United States presidency have attacked President Bush's policy in Iraq.
Speakers urged the president not to veto a bill passed by both houses of Congress which sets a timetable for withdrawing US troops from Iraq. The Democrat-controlled Congress passed the bill narrowly despite Mr Bush's repeated threats to veto it.
"We have given the Iraqi people the chance to have freedom, to have their own country. It is up to them to decide whether or not they're going to take that chance," said Senator Clinton.
Call back the US and UK Troops, ask them to withdraw from Iraq.
On the 14 December 1954, the General Assembly recommended that all countries institute a Universal Children's Day, to be observed as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children.
It recommended that the Day was to be observed also as a day of activity devoted to promoting the ideals and objectives of the Charter and the welfare of the children of the world. The Assembly suggested to governments that the Day be observed on the date and in the way which each considers appropriate.
The date 20 November, marks the day on which the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1959...The United Kingdom, however does NOT officially recognise this day....we want to change that....register here to help us have this as an official day to recognise the welfare of children worldwide
This petition is about animal rights and what to do to stop animal crutly in the United Kingdom.
