Tendo acedido à independência em 1974, este país Lusófono vem sendo ciclicamente palco de erupções violentas e sangrentas, da responsabilidade de agentes do Estado desviados para comportamentos criminosos, bárbaros, denunciadores de um poder paralelo arrogante, usurpador, anti-social e contra-natura, que sitia o Estado, as personalidades e as instituições; impõe-se de forma ostensivamente grosseira à Comunidade Internacional; desafia os valores universalmente aceites pela Consciência Humana no século XXI; e favorece o narcotráfico e o terrorismo de Estado.

Having assessed through their independence as a sovereign State in 1974, this Lusophone Country, has been periodically the stage of current violent and bloodily social eruptions, which responsibility fall on its actual State Agents, deviating their obligations to their country fellow man to criminal and barbaric behaviours, denouncing a parallel power using arrogant, usurpation, anti –social and contra nature means, who besieges the State, their legitimate personalities and institutions; imposing themselves in a ostensible and grosser manner to the International Community; trampling over the universal most holly and accepted values of the Human Consciousness of the XXI century; favouring the illegal drug trade and State-sponsored terrorism.

Ayant obtenu l’indépendance en tant qu'État souverain en 1974, ce pays Lusophone est cicliquement sujet à des éruptions sociales violentes et sanglantes, de la responsabilité d’agents de l'État déviés aux conduites criminelles et barbares, manifestations d’un pouvoir parallèle arrogant, usurpateur, antisocial et contre-nature,, qui assiège l'État, les personnes et les institutions; qui s’impose d'une façon ostensivement grossière à la Communauté internationale; qui défie les valeurs universellement acceptés par la conscience humaine au siècle XXI; qui soutient le narco trafique et le terrorisme d'État.

153. ETIOPIA-MEXICO Protect our cultural legacy

Below is attached a brief documentation on cultural relations between Mexico and Ethiopia:

"In the collective memory of the Mexican people, still on remeberance the historic visit that the Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie I made to Mexico in June 1954, gaining the affection and admiration of all who had the opportunity to meet him personally.

This friendly relationship between the two nations came when Ethiopia was attacked by the the Benito Mussulini's fascist forces in 1935, Mexico remains one of the few countries
standing up in the Ethiopia's cause within the congress then called the League of Nations, all this under the legal representation of the Mexican diplomatic Isidro Fabela.

At that time, the Mexican nation ruled by Lázaro Cárdenas ,who showed under him at the time, the firm stance of the nation over the defense of human rights and world peace.

Since that historic visit, between Mexico and Ethiopia, relations were established not only fiendly relationship, but as well as cultural exchanges caried out by the Ethiopian-Mexican Relation Institute. In adition a puclic school was created with name Ethiopia, aslo build was The Ethiopia Plaza, now reduced to a station on the Line 3 of the Mexico City Train Service, wherein June 22 1954 the Emperor unveiled a plaque, that for some strange reasons the where abouts are unkonw at this present time.

154. Pour un durcissement des peines contre la pédophilie au Maroc

Depuis 2004, le Maroc connaît une recrudescence de l'exploitation sexuelle, à travers le tourisme sexuel pédophilique, faisant du Maroc le troisième pays dans le domaine de la pédophilie, derrière la Thailande et le Brésil.

Le Code pénal marocain ne prévoit que 5 ans de prison pour un viol d'enfants, pire encore, dans les faits, les juges donnent dans la majorité des affaires, des peines dérisoires (de quelques mois à 2 ans de prison) à l'encontre des pédophiles et de leurs rabatteurs.

Très souvent, des procédures contre des pédophiles étrangers restent sans suite, du fait que les autorités craignent de porter préjudice au tourisme en ternissant la réputation du pays.

Ces faibles peines ne dissuadent pas ces pédocriminels, bien au contraire les affaires de pédophilie et de pornographie infantile sont en constante augmentation au Maroc.

156. Petition Against Unfair Eviction From Kyamula Village

The Katikkiro of Buganda

Your Excellency,

On February 5 2009, we received notice from Ms Equatorial Real Estate Limited through their lawyers which warned us (over 2000 families) against putting up any structures on Plots 2697 and 2698 Block 273 Konge, Kyamula and Buziga in Kampala. ERE was registered on 16 November 2007 and acquired the title on 1 January 2008 usurping the due process from the sitting tenants. They claim they would like to implement a city master plan for the area. However, the Buganda Land Board has not communicated to us about the new tenant and we shall deal only with BLB as the landlords.

157. Museveni, kagame, Kabila: stop violence!

The violence in congo and the violence against women in particular is just a consequence of the economic war organized by Museveni and Kagame with their disciple kabila in order to steal the natural weath of the DR of Congo.

According to me, these persons who are the root of evil must be brought to justice.

162. Stop Unsafe, Dangerous Soft Drinks in Nigeria

On 4 January, 2009, I bought 2 bottles of Cocacola and Fanta soft drinks for my family at the MR. BIGGS Eatery in Ogba, Lagos, Nigeria. My wife took the coca-cola while I took the Fanta. On opening the drinks both my wife and our 8 months old daughter, Maryam, took theirs right there in the Eatery before realizing that the black-coloured drink contained some solid particles. She raised the alarm. Further looking at the inner bottle of the drinks show that the particles were actually eggs of cockroaches and maggots! Photographs and video clips of the scenario were obtained.

The Eatery management advised that we should take my wife and baby to the hospital for medical attention and promised to pay the bill, which they never did up to date!

After receiving our petition by the African Activists for Human Rights International on the ugly matter, the Management of NBC Plc in Lagos only offered to give us some of bottles of drinks as appreciation, while the response of the Eatery Management was a threat to sue the organization for libel!

Though we have taken the petition to the regulatory authorities in the country, including NAFDAC., SON and CPC at the Federal level and Citizen's Rights of the Lagos State Government, our investigation did confirm that these corporate organizations have caused untold damage to the health of unsuspecting members of the public through unwholesome and unethical practices.

We are particularly worried that several other petitions are with these federal and state regulatory agencies from other members of the public asking for enforcement of their rights.

As I write, my daughter, baby Maryam has been admitted thrice in the hospital and treated on dysentery-related cases. She has not fully recovered. This has been at huge cost to me and the family.

163. Campaign for peace in Ogun state by Hon. Bukola Olopade

This is a petition protesting against some members of ogun state house of assembly, who plan a coup of impeachment against the governor, in order to destroy peace and development in ogun state.

I urge these Lawmakers to embrace peace and join hand with OGD to move the State forward. Vividly during the electioneering process in the State, they all work together as a Party to the extent that OGD photo was conspicuously in all of the candidates election poster, after riding on his back to power now want to pay back with a betrayal.

Every member of OGHA thinking of changing Ogun State, but no one among them think of changing themselves. We all worked assiduously for them to be there and now they have close the door against us, we are waiting in the constituency.

I urge these Lawmakers to embrace peace and join hand with OGD to move the State forward.

Thanks as my petition will be given global audience.

165. Camel Power Now

It is currently prescribed for patients in Russia, Kazakhstan and India, while in Africa, it may be recommended for treating AIDS.”

167. Additional Lane from Gibson Drive to North Road

The suburb of Buccleuch has 30 complexes and more are being approved by the City Town Planning. The road infrastructure has never been upgraded and with a population of 5000 workers we only have access out of Buccleuch in the mornings if the low level bridge is flooded.

When it is not flooded the filth washed up onto the bridge makes it impassable. It takes up to 1 hour to travel 1.3km every morning and the traffic congestion is not being catered for.

Traffic violations are broken every morning to cater for the traffic volumes between 6 - 8.30 let alone the waste of time and petrol while we frustratingly stand in the queue edging our way out.

168. More radio stations to cater for our tastes

South Africa is a diverse country of many cultures and religions. ICASA (the broadcast regulator) is required by government to manage the licensing of media services to cater for a diverse range of the population, yet their radio license policies and the current state of radio does not reflect this at all.

Other than small campus radio, there is no radio station catering for local music, rock, metal, 60s music or dance music specifically to its demographic. Most existing radio stations have the same music policies, and even similar play lists.

Other countries have adopted an LPFM (Low Power Fm) license system which allows more stations to operate to smaller areas, thereby creating the diversity that our country is supposed to be embracing. ICASA's current LPFM license policy is only designed for shopping malls and drive-in movie theaters.

If you're sick of hearing the same thing being played on every station, and are now turning on your Ipod, or if you love dance music, metal, rock, 60's, 70's or 80's music, or any genre that's not being aired on radio, or even if you're a musician struggling to get your music heard, its time you did something about it!

Sign this petition, and force ICASA to change their LPFM license policies to allow radio stations with 250W ERP transmitters to operate commercially, and allow you to hear the music you want to hear!

170. Lobby for additional Fertilizer and Grain Handling Facility in Mombasa, Kenya

Bulk grain chronology of events:

1) In year 2000 KPA grants a 33 year bulk grain and fertilizer license to Grain bulk handlers ltd.The license restricts other handlers from handling bulk grain at the port until 15th February,2008, i.e effectively a monopoly for 8years. The license is described as skewed by 2 transport ministers: Hon. Michuki and Hon. Makwere on the daily newspapers. Parliamentary investments committee in their report recommend competition.

2) In 2007,Grain bulk ltd. applies to KPA to extend the monopoly for another 25 years which is rejected by KPA, and KPA board proceeds to resolve that a tender for a 2nd bulk grain facility takes place.This news was greeted with relief as the monopoly operator charges usd 16 per ton while in Egypt for the same type of machinery, the operators charge usd 5 per ton. This comparatively higher handling cost is being passed on to the consumers.

3) After advertisement of the tender, there was surprise to learn of tender cancellation. The reason of 1000 workers losing jobs is a surprise. What the process entails is that the same workers will be carrying out loading manual work at the 2nd facility instead of at the port. This is what the monopoly bulk operator is doing presently as well. So there’s is no issue of job losses. Indeed the Kenya Union of Commercial Food and Allied Workers can attest to this as per attached annex 1. The reason of job losses was merely meant to justify the cancellation. In any case how does one hold millions of Kenyans ransom because of 1000 people? The 2nd facility will in fact create jobs by way of administration staff, technicians, finance staff, drivers, machine operators, technicians, etc similar to the present monopoly operator.

4) The issue of investments by the monopoly holder has presently no basis. It will be recalled that the monopoly holder was given a monopoly for 8 years, during which time he recouped his investment. Having been denied a monopoly extension for another 25years, the monopoly operator now wants to use the investments story. The remaining portion outstanding was after the monopoly operator wanted a further 25 years monopoly that he made a unilateral expansion programme without a binding written KPA commitment to extend the monopoly and now wants to demand a monopoly extension after it had been officially rejected. The majority of the bidders for the 2nd bulk facility have individually indicated that they are not going to demand any protectionism of any kind from the Government as the business is viable and can sustain 2 facilities. Several African countries have 2 or more than 2 operators. Sudan is currently constructing its 3rd grain facility.

5) When vessels arrive, the sole bulk grain operator has on several occasions been unable to cope with the inflow of ships, resulting in huge demurrages which the millers are forced to pass on to consumers. The demurrages range from usd 30,000 to usd 75000 per day! To illustrate, we append a schedule of vessels which were on hold for several days:
WHITE MIST 4/9/2008 7/9/2008 19500M/T MAIZE
ALFA-K 7/9/2008 11/9/2008 28580M/T MAIZE
SPYRO B 11/9/2008 14/9/2008 34000M/T WHEAT
BIANCO VENTURE 19/9/2008 22/9/2008 12000M/T WHEAT
HAWK 24/9/2008 26/9/2008 39000M/T WHEAT
INNES 27/9/2008 7/10/2008 6000M/T MAIZE
KEN GALANT 2/10/2008 " " " " " 41500M/TWHEAT
DISCOVER 2 3/10/2008 " " " " " 16000M/TWHEAT
LIBERTY EAGLE 7/10/2008 " " " " " 43500M/TSORGHUM
DIANA STAR 30/10/2008 10/11/2008 7420 M/T MAIZE

If we take the above schedule and use just an average delay of 3 days multiplied by an average Usd 40,000, multiplied by an exchange rate of ksh 77/= per dollar times the 11 ships is equal to Ksh 101,640,000. This is what is being passed on to Kenyan consumers! Can you imagine the cost? The information above can be independently verified from KPA records, shipping agents, millers and world food programme. In fact the World Food Programme is also complaining due to demurrages as a result of ship delays. They have indicated that the delay is causing them to overshoot their budget in terms of demurrages to owners of ships which means proportionately lesser subsequent relief maize, etc. In effect the monopoly is affecting even the most vulnerable and needy!


171. Stop Deforestation in Madagascar

Deforestation in Madagascar is a very important issue which can not be put off or ignored because if this happens all of the rainforests in Madagascar will be gone within the next 40 years.

Currently 90% of the rainforests in Madagascar have already been destroyed because of logging, slash and burn agriculture, mining, etc. Madagascar is also home to hundreds of endemic species found no where else on earth, if the rainforests are all cut down then many endangered species will also go extinct.

175. كلنا من أجل وقف التصرفات غير المقبولة لأعوان المكتب الوطني للسكك الحديدية

بينما كنت أهم بالنزول من القطار في محطة المحمدية حتى تعطل الباب الأتوماتيكي فذهبت إلى باب المقطورة الموالية لكي أنزل. فإذا بي أسمع صراخاموجها نحونا من طرف سائق القطار, فذهبت إليه كي أستفسره عن سبب الصراخ فإذا به يفاجئني و يبصق على وجهي و يوجه إلي سبابا أخجل من ذكره أمامكم وهذا أمام مسمع رئيس الأمن بالمحطة.
بعد هاته الإهانة لم يكن أمامي سوى أن أتقدم بشكاية في مكتب رئيسة المحطة وأخرى لدى مصلحة الشرطة بالمحمدية

177. Free Rose Kbauye

Our Rose Kabuye! She liberated a country that had been left to perish by the international community. The French masterminded the 1994 genocide and have blood on their hands. They are now hiding behind Habyarimana's plane crash and issuing fake arrest warranties.

Germany should be ashamed of its actions as this is a country that has had its bitter share of history-the holocost. France and Germany should respect National Sovereignty, people's rights and international justice.

Tuzabatsinda Ukuri kwose tugufashe muntoki. Intsinzi y Urwanda n abanyawanda ntabwo tuzabaho kubera abantu bafite amaraso mumitwe yabo bashaka kunywa ayandi tuzabanesha.


The evidence is overwhelming that France was directly involved in planning and creating the political up-upheavals that led to the 1994 Genocide and the incident that precipitated that genocide.

France sparked off the genocide by killing both Habyarimana and the then PM! Eventually when they realised they were on the losing side, the created the so called "Libérer la zone de Triangle" as a haven for the partners (The nterahamwe). If France wants the truth why hide the "BLACK BOX" of the Habyarimana's jet which holds these secrets?

The truth is stronger than France and eventually it will prevail and that moment is now where Rose has played her part and now the rest of us should stand up against France's crimes! TURI KUMWE!

179. Supporting the Arrest of a killer (NKundabatware)
