Petition Tag - war
تؤثر الألعاب التي تشبه الأسلحة في زيادة العنف في المجتمع وتساهم في إنحراف الأطفال والصبيان بإتجاه الفظاظة والشدة وتشجع على إختيار السلاح كحل أساسي لمشاكلهم في حياتهم. ومن المهم التوقف عن تشجبع إستخدام هذه الألعاب ومنع إستيرادها و تداولها بشكل قاطع من المجتمع والحكومة
On June 4, 2012 a Libyan Military court heard a case of Ukrainian citizens arrested in August 2011 by revolutionary brigade "Al-Kaakaa". The court recognised all group members guilty of assistance to Kaddafi forces and sentenced 23 people to 10 years of imprisonment and 1 person to life imprisonment.
It is a group of the civil technicians who arrived in Libya under civil contracts. Instead of that they were captured by Kaddafi forces and enforced under pain of death to perform a little time works on military technical equipment repair. They did not participate in military operations, did not take weapon in their hands, and did not battle for any fighting parties! They are hostages of a current situation!
Especially it is necessary to notice that these people arrived in Libya under lawful contracts of the international cooperation, and they are citizens of the countries, which had diplomatic relations with Libya.
One of the cult Terramn quotes in a cinematic before death is "I love you, sarge!"
When you look at all of the problems facing the world today--environmental exploitation, animal cruelty, hunger, poverty, greed, war, and many more--the fundamental problem can be seen as a fragmented mindset, one which perceives everything else as something separate from the self.
In the words of noted quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami:
"The ultimate disease--the root disease--is the illusory thinking that we are separate from the Whole. To heal the disease is to realize that we are Whole, that the separation is but an illusion."
Thus, the goal of this petition is to heal the fragmented mentality through promoting an ethical system based on the most fundamental, universal, unifying belief in the world: that everything emanates from One, Supremely Good and Beautiful Source, and, therefore, everything is essentially One.
This simple, universal belief has resounding ethical implications (e.g. we should treat all things with love, compassion, and respect), healing the world on a fundamental level.
This belief is so universal and so powerful, it is high time it receives its due honor and support.
So, please, take a stand with us and declare: We all are One!
THIS PETITION IS IN REGARD TO TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY WAR HEROES,NOT ENOUGH IS BEING DONE A LOT OF THEM ARE LEFT HOMELESS AND NO WHERE TO GO.THERE SHOULD BE MORE PRIVATE DONATIONS COMING IN AS WELL AS A LOT MORE GOVERNMENT FUNDING, SUPPORT GROUPS, HOMELESS SHELTER, PROTECT THESE WAR HEROES THAT HAS MADE OUR GREAT COUNTRY WHAT IT IS TODAY WITHOUT THEM WE WOULD NOT HAT THE FREEDOM IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY LIKE MW DO NOW.
THAT IS WHY I AM ASKING ALL OF YOU TO SIGN MY PETITION TODAY FOR ALL THE GOOD REASONS ABOVE.

A Memorial sits in one of Hull City Museums which was taken out of the Bus Depot prior to demolition. It lists 20 members of KHCT that died at Home or on Active Service.
As members of the Company that is still in operation Kingston Upon Hull City Transport we feel its only right to have this Memorial placed back into its right and proper place.
We the fans of the band "WAR" wish to petition the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the induction of "WAR" into the RRHOF. We feel that it has been a long time coming and they have been unjustly left off the list of final inductee's twice (2009 and 2012).
The original line up of WAR reads like all star band, Papa Dee Allen, Harold R Brown, BB Dickerson, Lonnie Jordan, Lee Oskar (the harmonica wizard), Charles Miller and their leader Howard E Scott. Their induction would only enhance the RRHOF. WAR was born from humble beginnings and grew to world wide fame. Their music not only captures the late sixties and seventies but it also melded all the different sound that were emanating from the streets, ghettos and counter culture.
WAR captured a block of time that was born of the streets from which they came and help create a soundtrack for a generation. From "Spill the Wine (with Eric Burdon)" to "Lowrider" WAR creativity is more relevant than ever and still shine's on television (programs and commercials) as well as motion pictures. Their catalog includes 9 certified gold albums and 2 platinum certified albums.

We, as academics and scientists, anxiously follow the recent cross-border incidents that have been taking place between Turkey and Syria. We may disagree about the particular dynamics of the turmoil in Syria; however, we strongly agree that any foreign intervention is not the answer.
We believe that military interference in Syria will contribute to the escalating tension between the countries in the region as well as among their international allies. Considering the disorder in Syria and the current fragile political balance in the region, we are tremendously concerned that these critical actions against Syria will lead to more casualties within the country and trigger further wars in the Middle East.
Wars kill people, destroy millions of lives and deteriorate living conditions of the poor and lower strata; but also demolish world’s cultural heritage, historical resources, and intellectual accumulation of thousands of years and leave permanent damage on public health and ecology. We witnessed, with sorrow, the most recent example of a cruel demolition of this sort during the occupation of Iraq.
Therefore, we object Turkey’s ongoing aggressive policy and any possible NATO operation in Syria. We are against any foreign operation that violates the Syrian people's right of self-determination. Herein, we call for world's attention to the wide-spread and strong anti-war sentiments of the people in Turkey, contrary to the deceitful representations of the international mainstream media.
The United States has been a country for 235 years and 209 of these years the country has spent at war. Sign this petition to call for an end to war.
War helps the US procure resources and create jobs but can destroy local economies and force other countries to adopt an American lifestyle which requires countries to support large scale industrial farming and production for export at the expense of small land owners and producers and social services. This leads to famine and debt enslavement.
Nearly 2,800 innocent men, women and children died September 11, 2001. Many fire fighters and policemen serving their country sacrificed their own lives to save others. Since then, war has erupted and even more death befell upon our country.
The horrendous act of terrorism has changed the United States forever and on its anniversary our district should take a day off to celebrate the lives of those who had lost them.
The war in Afghanistan costs thousands of lives and trillions of dollars in defense of a corrupt and unpopular regime, one that is entirely dependent on Western troops and aid.
The war has inflamed Muslim opinion and failed to make Europe or the United States safer. Morality is undermined by recent NATO claims of no “confirmed” civilian casualties.
The Gurkhas from Nepal have been serving the British Army for over 2 centuries. They swear allegiance to our Majesty the Queen when they join the Army.
Despite all this, they do not have Citizen Rights of the UK. After much fighting by the Respected Joanna Lumley, the Gurkhas managed to get settlement rights, but what did that achieve? Nothing. They do not have the access they should to pensions, to having their families with them and even their civil rights have a lot left to be desired.
The British Army took 12/13/14 year old and now that these men are in their 60's, 70's and 80's, they are living like paupers and beggars. Is that right? Is that fair?
I humbly request that you sign this petition and make any relevant comments for me to take to 10 Downing Street on the 24th April 2012 when we are holding a peace rally for the above. We will be outside 10 Downing Street from 12 noon on the day, please, come and join us. Thanks
The United States draft resolution (A/HRC/19/L.2) on Sri Lanka was tabled at the 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on 8 March 2012.
This resolution, is being brought up to address the alleged "war crimes" supposed to have occurred during the humanitarian mission to save innocent civilians from the terror of the inhumane terrorist organization calling itself the "Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)".
1. Calls upon the Government of Sri Lanka to implement the constructive Recommendations made in the report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission and to take all necessary additional steps to fulfil its relevant legal obligations and commitment to initiate credible and independent actions to ensure justice, equity, accountability and reconciliation for all Sri Lankans;
2. Requests the Government of Sri Lanka to present, as expeditiously as possible, a comprehensive action plan detailing the steps that the Government has taken and will take to implement the recommendations made in the Commission’s report, and also to address alleged violations of international law;
3. Encourages the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and relevant special procedures mandate holders to provide, and the Government of Sri Lanka to accept, advice and technical assistance on implementing the above-mentioned steps, and requests the Office of the High Commissioner to present a report on the provision of such assistance to the Human Rights Council at its twenty-second session.
The passing of this resolution will have the effect of;
1) Breaching Article 2(7) of the Charter of the United Nations which states "Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state"
2)Completely jeopardizing the core concepts of International Law and breaching Article 2(1) of the Charter of the United Nations, which ensure the sovereign equality of all its Members, since no such resolution has been brought up against the US (sponsor of the current resolution) for allegations of Human Rights Violations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
3) Violating the sovereignty and integrity of Sri Lanka.
4) Hindering the effort of the Sri Lankan government in its reconciliation efforts to ensure equality among all races and the post war development process.
5) Taxing the resources of the United Nations since the government of Sri Lanka has already made substantial progress in implementing the recommendations of the LLRC report which makes it unnecessary for a process as recommended.
We all know that Super Junior and Girls' Generation have a wonderful relationship between them, but their fans, SONE and ELF not.
They fight if they don't win the award, when a Suju member or a Soshi member talk to each other, but the one who started the fanwar are the TROLLS. So please, can't we just stop the war and start our relationship new?
And anyways, all other people hear always bad things about out relationship and it is bad for us too, they don't want to join the fandom because they hear they fight a lot...
Don't you want to fight together? SM entertainment together? Super Generation together? You all know that Super Junior and Girl's Generation are the most successful k-pop group, but when we work together we will be unreachable.
In an attempt to balance perspectives on gender-related conflict, in October 2000, the United Nations' Security Council adopted Resolution S/RES/1325. This resolution aims to increase participation of women in conflict resolution and humanitarian response.
*At the turn of the 20th century, 5% of war casualties were civilians
*In World War I, 15% were civilians
*In World War II, 65% were civilian
*By the mid-nineties, 75% of war deaths were civilians
*Today, 90% of the human war toll are civilians--the majority of these victims are women and children
UN resolution 1325 calls on all parties to conflict to take special measures to protect women and girls from gender-based violence, particularly rape and other forms of sexual abuse, in situations of armed conflict.
The United States is currently taking steps to create a National Action Plan to realize the resolution's goals.
Rhino poaching in South Africa is a very serious issue, as of the 3rd of November 2011 341 rhinos have been killed so far this year outstripping last year’s total of 333 and it’s not even the end of the year.
Rhino poachers in SA are even targeting dehorned rhinos for two reasons, firstly there is still a substantial piece of horn below the surface of the skin and secondly by killing the rhino it increases the price of rhino horn as it becomes a more valuable commodity. It is for this second reason that many poachers are also killing baby rhinos which have little or no horn at all. Fewer rhinos equals more money per kilogram of rhino horn.
Rhino horn is widely used in Chinese culture as it is believed it can cure a wide variety of ailments varying from boils to cancer and even devil possession. It has no medicinal value it is compressed hair or kerratin the same as you would find in your finger nails.
In middle east culture rhino horn is a status symbol if you have one as a sheath for your dagger. Needless to say many other materials could be used.
Your signature is massively appreciated.
HELP TO SAVE SOUTH AFRICA'S RHINOS!
AFRICOM is a military entity that is encircling Africa. It is the cutting edge of the imperialist war machine that brings drones and other military hardware that kills african and destabilises the region.
AFRICOM threatens the peace and stability in Africa and drives a colonial agenda that is destructive and exploitative. Africa, in order to develop itself in peace, needs all war machines off its soil so as it has a sovereign integrity and political independence.
There will never be peace in Africa as long as AFRICOM is on its soil.
A recent United Nations report suggests that the United States and NATO allies are outsourcing torture and human rights violations in Afghanistan. The report concludes that there is a continuing pattern and practice of “systematic” torture in spite of repeated efforts at reform. (UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, October 2011)
Current US policy violates the Leahy Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and Defense Appropriations Act (Sec. 563, P.L. 106-429 and Sec. 8092, P.L. 106-259, 2001).
The September 22 testimony of Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, may well “pave the way… to new unilateral military actions inside Pakistan,” including more drone strikes and, “even cross border raids into Pakistan to root out insurgents from their havens.” (New York Times, September 22-23, 2011)
After Mullen’s testimony, the Heritage Foundation immediately called for aggressive military and diplomatic escalation. (Christian Science Monitor, September 26, 2011) House Republicans are pushing an open-ended authorization for war against any insurgents anywhere in the world “associated” with the Taliban or Al Qaeda.
Enough is enough. Escalation in Pakistan is not in the national security interest of the United States. Already our drone attacks have provoked two terrorist near misses against American civilians, one at the Detroit airport on Christmas Day 2009 and another at Times Square on May 1, 2010. It is not in the economic interest of the United States; we cannot afford another trillion-dollar war. It is not in the moral interest of the United States; the drone attacks kill innocent people and inflame millions of Pakistanis against America.
The military pursuit of terrorist sanctuaries, first in Iraq and then in Afghanistan, has left behind thousands dead and wounded and only pushed the sanctuaries to new locations. Each escalation begets another. Besides Pakistan, our government is pursuing undeclared air wars against terrorist cells with drone attacks in Somalia and Yemen. (Washington Post, September 20, 2011)
It makes no sense to escalate attacks against the Pakistan sanctuaries of the Afghan Taliban while the US ends its combat role, gradually withdraws from Afghanistan, and supports a power-sharing arrangement with all parties. It is irrational to bomb the Taliban’s sanctuaries while inviting them to the peace table. A genuine diplomatic settlement requires a phased ending of the drone attacks as US troops phase out their role in Afghanistan.
Sending in ground troops backed by air power is as foolish as President Nixon’s 1970 invasion of Cambodia allegedly to wipe out Vietcong sanctuaries.
Hello, fellow Minecraft players!
We would like to bring to your attention the increasing pandemic of griefer attacks. According to the Minecraft Wiki, "Griefing is the act of ruining large or very noticeable portions of other people's creations on a multiplayer Creative or Survival server. It is frowned upon by the majority of Minecraft users because it ruins many hours of work and makes maps untidy. In best case scenarios, the griefer is quickly removed from the server and their damage is trivial to repair. At worst, griefing can destroy an entire server if it does not have backups available."
They have destroyed many of our precious creations in SMP, and desecrated thousands upon thousands of servers. Therefore, we have started the Minecraft Griefer War of 2011. Our goal is to ban as many griefers as possible, and make sure they do not return to ruin our creations. We wish to destroy this pandemic that has been plaguing the Minecraft world since multiplayer servers ever existed. We wish not to destroy other people's creations, to not taint their beautiful work, and to punish those who dare destroy, and have destroyed the precious things we have built.
If you wish to see a griefer in action without destroying any of your creations, go to this video:
- There is an employment crisis because of a lack of decent stable jobs.
- There is a moral crisis because the rich and well connected want the rest of us to pay for their irresponsible speculation, fraud and greed.
- There is a crisis of democracybecause our political system is dominated by people with money rather than people with good ideas.
- We've made our sacrifices. . . . We sacrificed our jobs, standard of living, health care, children's education, retirement security, the environment and the precious lives of our loved ones in wars.
Let those who caused the crisis now make their sacrifices!
I would like to refer you to numerous studies (since 1974!) that show that cannabinoids kills cancer cells, shrink tumors, halts the spread of invasive carcinomas, and prevents occurrence; cannabinoids signal the cancer to go into apoptosis which is “programmed cell death” after Ceramide begins production.
-university of VA -THC causes kills leukaemia cells;
-University of Texas study showing the CB1 receptor (which is activated by cannabis) suppresses colorectal cancer tumor, when the CB-1 receptor is lost cancer can occur;
-Univ of Southern Florida study showing that cannabis blocks cancer causing viruses;
-Harvard study showing cannabis cuts lung cancer growth in half;
-The British Journal of Cancer reports that cannabis treats prostate cancer;
-Pacific Medical Center Research Institute found that cannabis halts breast cancer.
Withdrawal from The European Union is an option that must be offered to the people of Britain.
The United States cannot afford a deepening quagmire in Libya. We call on President Obama to seek authorization from the U.S. Congress for his Libyan bombing campaign, including a mission statement limited to protecting Libyan civilians, a viable diplomatic strategy, an exact cost projection, and a timeline for the rapid withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops before the war becomes another quagmire.
The peace is under attack by the politicians of US and EU. They want to kill the independence of Libya now. They have organize a huge disinformation campaign against the free peoples of Libya.. They want to make us a slaves.
There are only the some facts of the information war against free Libya:
We will send this petition to the United Nations Organization, to the other international organizations, to the leaders of states and to the statesmen. Free Libya needs your vote, our world needs your vote, the peace needs your vote, the future needs your vote!
STOP POLITICIANS !!!!
VOTE FOR A FREE LIBYA !!!
Please contact us if you want to help to stop the aggression against free Libya:
(You can see the many links to the national support groups in Internet in a "Docs" section on that page).
This petition is for anyone who wants to show their support for nurses who have delivered care on fields of conflict, in service of their country. There is currently no dedicated memorial to the service of all nursing staff in the United Kingdom.
We are therefore calling on the Government of the United Kingdom to back the RCN’s campaign for a national monument, recognising the service of nursing staff in conflict zones.
From the work of Florence Nightingale on the Crimean battlefields to the modern day service in Afghanistan, nurses have served courageously in the heat of battle for generations.
More than 2,000 nurses gave their lives during the two world wars.
We believe it is now time for this unique service by nurses to be recognised.
The war in Afghanistan has been responsible for the deaths of well over 20,000 people including 22 Australian soldiers. this war is abut an oil pipeline. Read this
The Afghan War has been going on since October 7, 2001, and has been going on nonstop since. According to Wikipedia, 1370 U.S. soldiers have died in the Afghan War and 14000-34000 Afghan civilians have died.
Please help stop this terrible war.
Be the Change while fostering foster peace so that it radiates throughout the entirety of the Middle East.
The commitment to Dream Big for Peace was adopted by many of the friends and readers of Maria Khalife’s newsletters last year. Many readers of this newspaper and fans of the local media were among those who took the vow, lived a year of peace, and offered many suggestions for creating lasting peace.
Everything begun on 29th of November in 1947 and still this time. Unfortunately, children still breathe the air there that smells of blood. Palestine or Israel, Israel or Palestine?
Nobody still really knows who is right and who is to blame, one thing is clear - to stop this madness. It seems that this war - eternal! We believe that every country deserves to be independent, and Palestine, is not out of question. It seems that everything is difficult. Yes, but we should at least try to change something. Let’s take 20,000 votes and UN will here us.
Let us not be indifferent. We are part of this world and we came to do something. I do not think that somebody likes most things are still resolved in this way- act of violence. Let us try to save Palestine. We need your help!
Periods of the conflict
On the historical timeline, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict has had seven distinct phases:
Late 19th century-1917: The period of the Ottoman Empire rule in Palestine in which the Arabs in The Ottoman Palestine saw themselves as part of the overall Arab territories which were under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. During that period, the disputes were on the basis of religious background and not on national background.
1917-1948: The period of the British Mandate of Palestine, in which both parties were under British rule and under a single political entity, called Palestine in English. During this period significant Jewish immigration from Europe altered the demographic balance. The term "The Israeli–Palestinian conflict" was not used, and instead the conflict was referred to as "the Jewish-Arab conflict over the Land of Palestine" (by the Arab population and the British population), "the Jewish-Arab conflict over Erez-Israel" (by the Jewish population).
1948-1967: The period between the declaration of the State of Israel and the Six-Day War in which the parties resided in three separate political entities: The State of Israel, the Gaza Strip which was controlled by Egypt and the West Bank which was annexed to Jordan.
1967: The Six-Day War: Border clashes between Syria and Israel
First Day: Combined air attacks on all fronts by Israel in early morning destroy two-thirds of Arab aircraft.
Second Day: Paratroops move from Ammunition Hill to Mt. Scopus (Jerusalem).
Third Day: Old City liberated, the West Bank is controlled, and Israeli military government is established.
Fourth Day: Israel reaches Suez Canal.
Fifth Day: Battles continue, mostly up north.
Sixth Day: Cease fire proclaimed, Israel controls Golan Heights and demilitarizes Jerusalem area.
1967-1993: The period between the Six-Day War and the Oslo Accords, in which the conflicted parties reside in the areas addressed by the UN Partition Plan that were under the control of the State of Israel.
1993-2000: The period between the Oslo Accords and the Second Intifada, in which Israel existed alongside the semi-sovereign political autonomy - the Palestinian Authority.
2000–2005: The period between the beginning of the Second Intifada up until 2005, in which Israel returned to perform arresting operations in Area A zones in the West Bank.
2005–Present: The period after Israel's unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. The withdrawal led to the strengthening of Hamas, which in 2006 won an election, then took control over the Gaza Strip.
