1. Arrow Australian Convention

In 2009 I signed an online petition to get a Supernatural Convention in Australia with special guests Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Two months later that petition had enough signatures to bring the awareness to the right people who could make such an event happen.

Now I am hoping to do that same thing with the Hit TV Show Arrow.

2. Bring Jason David Frank to Australia

Jason David Frank is best know for Tommy Oliver in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series. 20 years ago he first graced the screen in Green With Evil a 5 part mini series. This was his introduction and from that day onwards childrens television would never be the same.

Jason David Frank has a massive love for all his fans and attends so many cons every year. three generations of fans now are fans of Jason David Frank and will be more to come in the future. He is one of the worlds most famous Power Rangers and a Martial arts legend on top of that.

3. Bring PonyCON AU to Adelaide!

4. Eternal Twilight 10 Please!

We would like to ask that you please sign this petition if you would like to see an Eternal Twilight 10. Sadly due to the close proximity to Christmas and the last convention I know many people were unable to attend, but would be much more likely if there were another one in Oct.

More time to save means more money to spend. End on an even 10. These are very important to some people, they are times to get together with friends, meet some celebs and have fun. They mean a lot to us all.

5. Ratify ILO Convention No. 169

Affirming that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are equal to all other peoples, while recognizing the right of all peoples to be different, to consider themselves different, and to be respected as such; and

Recalling that Australia, in responding to the recommendations of the Universal Periodic Review at the United Nation’s Human Rights Council’s seventeenth session on 31 May 2011, committed to formally considering becoming a party to International Labour Organization Convention No. 169 concerning Indigenous and Tribal Peoples (ILO 169); and

Recalling that in April 2009, Australia supported the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples ‘in the spirit of re-setting the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and building trust’; and

Noting the positive effect that ILO 169 has had on those Indigenous peoples living within or otherwise impacted upon by those nation states that have ratified the Convention, including Norway.

6. Make the Chemical Weapons Convention Obligatory for UN members

The Chemical Weapons Convention created by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons.

Every country in the world has signed this international agreement, except for six countries. Syria is one of them. Various sources reflect that the Syrian government is willing to use their chemical weapons to stop the uprising.

Since chemical weapons can be used for mass killings in a matter of minutes, these atrocities must be stopped.

9. Lettre ouverte aux participants à la CoSP4 رسالة مفتوحة إلى المشاركين في

Lettre ouverte aux participants à la 4ème session de la Conférence des États parties à la Convention des Nations Unies contre la Corruption (CNUCC), qui se tient à Marrakech (24-28 octobre).


رسالة مفتوحة إلى المشاركين في الدورة الرابعة لمؤتمر الدول الأطراف في اتفاقية الأمم المتحدة لمكافحة الفساد

10. Harry Potter Convention in Main Australian Cities!

In March 2011, two Australian cities only got to share the bliss of a Harry Potter convention. This was a high inconvenience for the rest of the Australian Harry Potter fans not situated near Sydney or Melbourne.

Many fans were disappointed to not be able to participate in the first Harry Potter Convention down under.

11. Support a UK Harry Potter convention

After 10 years, the films are coming to an end in July yet the UK have only had one small Harry Potter convention which stopped running after the first year due to low ticket sales.

I believe this was due to the stars they had attending and want to show the organisor's that there are Harry Potter fans out there who would love nothing more than to meet the stars of the films.

You can meet some of your favourite stars by going to different conventions but wouldn't it be great if they were in one place for a day so you could meet them one after the other instead of going to several different events over time?

So if you are a fan of the films and would love nothing more than to meet your favourite stars, sign the petition to help me show Showmasters Ltd (who run these sorts of events) that it would be worth putting a Harry Potter convention together.

Please also make a note of your 3 top favourite actors from the Harry Potter films that you would like meet if the convention was run.

12. We want a Supernatural Convention in Greece

Apocalypse Con.. It's gonna be EPIC.... are u ready for this?Cause we are...... and we cant wait any more.

13. We want Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki to come back to Australia for the All Hell Breaks Loose II Convention

Australia is having another Supernatural convention in Sydney and Melbourne on the 8/9 of May 2010. We have been told by the Hub Productions that the stars of the show (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) Will not be attending as they are too expensive.

While we are excited to have stars such as Misha Collins and Jim Beaver in attendance we were very upset to hear this. And have decided to do anything in our power to prove that this isn't true. That no matter what the cost if Jensen and Jared are signed that the hub will see a huge interest among the Supernatural fans and we can make this happen.

We hope that by providing the hub with feedback of our interest that they will see that it is feasible to bring the boys out here and that the amount of fans interested will cover the cost.

14. Pop-culture/Anime convention for Darwin

Darwin has a newly created convention center which would be perfect for pop culture convention, It also has many citizens who like to watch/read anime or who are generally interested in popular culture.

We feel it is a great opportunity to expand on the cities cultural limits and its renown in the general area. It can be educational and teach many people about foriegn culture while bringing tourists from all over the country.

15. A Call for Democracy in the Democratic Party Primary

Much has been said by candidates in the Democratic Party Primary of utilizing Superdelegates and / or the seating of the Michigan and Florida delegates to provide a candidate with the required delegate count for election as the Democratic Presidential candidate.

This has been said while acknowledging that the use of such Superdelegates could go against the pledged delegate count, and thus the will of the Democratic Party Primary voters.

The seating of the Florida and Michigan delegates has also been proposed in clear opposition to the solution agreed upon by the DNC, and all candidates, to address the refusal of those two states to not move their Democratic Primaries earlier in the calendar year. This has been proposed by a Democratic candidate, despite the fact that, prior to the Primary, that candidate and staff members had previously agreed to the DNC decision to not seat those delegations.

The net effect of either of the above could serve to nominate a candidate in a way that would obviate the will of the Democratic Primary voters.

This petition is a way to serve notice to those in power in the Democratic Party and the candidates participating in this Presidential Primary that such tactics are viewed by the signers of this petition as a fatal breach of the trust of the members of the Democratic Party.

In particular, such a breach of trust is viewed as so serious that the signers of this petition would actively work to insure that such a candidate is not elected to the highest office in the land.

The most essential ingredient of democracy is in the expression of the will of the people by their vote. A presidential candidate that would subvert that will for their own gain, no matter what the claimed ideal, is not deserving of that office.

16. UK should withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights

The European Convention on Human Rights was signed by the UK government in 1998 without any prior consent from the British public.

This has caused us to lose our right to self govern and means that any criminal can appeal to the EU Court which overrules our courts.

17. Pakistan should comply with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Disabled

UN Convention on the Rights of the Disabled, which Pakistan has not signed.

18. The U.S.'s Ratification the UN's Convention of the Rights of The Child

The Convention of Rights of the Child is a declaration created by the United Nations on November 20th 1989. The bill, which is made up of 54 Articles addresses all aspects of rights that affect any persons under the age of 18.

According to B. Edmonds and W. Fernekes, authors of the Children’s Rights Handbook: the Convention not only includes rights that protect and provide for children but also rights giving children the highest standard of national or international legal rights available.

Overall the CRC acknowledges that people under the age of 18 have a right to a point of view and that these views are to be heard, and considered in all aspect of the minor’s welfare.

19. Otakon in DC

August 5, 2006

We love Otakon. We've been going for several years, and we want to be able to keep going, and enjoying it, in the years to come.

But Otakon 2006 is definitely not as enjoyable as previous Otakons. It is obvious to anyone who is attending that there are too many people for the space. The crowding not only degrades the con experience considerably on its own, but seems to have exacerbated the normal snafus we know come with running a con: this year they seem worse than usual.

One solution is to lower the attendance cap back to 2005 or 2004 levels. That would work, but it would mean less people could enjoy Otakon, and it would mean Otakon wouldn't be able to grow anymore.

The better solution is to move Otakon to the Washington DC Convention Center. The DC convention center is much larger than the Baltimore Convention Center.

-Otakon 2006 con chair, Jim Vowles himself said: "Realistically, unless the BCC is leveled and rebuilt, it will not be a serious competitor with DC"

-The DC convention center is located conveniently close to a Metro (commuter rail) station, so people could stay in cheaper hotels in MD and VA and take the train in.

-Great part of town, plenty of restaurants, located in our nation's capital!

Every year the registration price goes up, but more people just get shoved into the same space. We encourage you to choose the option that will both give your fans what they want and allow Otakon to keep growing and thriving.

21. The State Sovereignty Project

Claims of state sovereignty and secession-rights were denied via the American Civil War, but this denial was never legally examined to determine its validity; rather, they were forced on the states solely through federal brute force. However, various experts have recently challenged such denial, claiming that the states are truly sovereign, and that such denial is therefore in breach of existing law. These experts include such reputable and accredited and educated professionals and professors such as Drs. Thomas DiLorenzo, Walter Williams, Thomas E. Woods and others.

If such experts are indeed correct, then this bears dire meaning for our State, with regard to its sovereignty -- as well as to our rights as Michigan citizens.

The State Sovereignty Project therefore seeks to petition the Michigan state legislature to draft a referendum-proposal in order to examine and verify this issue.

This proposal, if passed, will authorize an official state convention, to examine the political status of the State of Michigan according to valid law. This convention will convene a team of of objective and independent experts in the field of legal research, who will examine all relevant evidence regarding this matter.

From this evidence, this team and Convention will determine the actual meaning and impact of the laws and Constitution regarding the political status of the State of Michigan, in relation to the federal Union and government.

Subsequently, the People of the State of Michigan will then examine the Convention's findings, and determine appropriate action in response to such.

22. Stop Female Infanticide Now!

In many parts of the world, sex ratio is artificially skewed in favor of boy children. Recently, the number of males has increased and the number of females has decreased in China, India, Pakistan, and South Korea.

In many cases, girl children are so devalued that they are abandoned or killed at birth. Female, infanticide-the intentional killing of girl babies-has been widely documented in China and India, and is believed to be common in other Asian countries. Current technology allows women to know the gender of their fetuses before birth, and in many parts of the world, female fetuses are several times more likely to be aborted.

If they are allowed to live, girl children often receive little food and no health care or education-all of which are violations of girls' human rights. Because girls are less often educated than boys, two-thirds of the worlds illiterate adults are women. In many countries girls are more likely to become ill, but less likely to be taken to a doctor than their male counterparts. Discrimination against girl children manifests itself in a variety of more subtle ways as well. In some cultures, for example, although girl children may not be denied an education, they often receive less attention in school and are steered into stereotypical areas of study.

Discrimination against girl children is so deeply ingrained on an international level that it was nearly left out to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The convention was nearly opened for signature in 1990 containing only male pronouns: "she" and "her" had to be added at the last minute. Given this, it is perhaps not surprising that the convention often does not speak to the needs of girl children. For example, it does not address female genital mutilation, son preference, or early marriage-practices that impact girls more than boys.

23. Constitutional Reform for Alabama

June 1, 2006

Over 70,000 petition signatures were submitted to the 2006 session of the Alabama legislature asking them to support a blill that would allow the people of Alabam to vote for or against a convention to rewrite the State Constitution. The Bill was approved by the appropriate Senate committee, but then was allowed to die.

We will continue to gather signatures and hopefully submit several hundred thousand to the next session

For more details, visit the above Reform website.

We will not reach our full potential until we get a 21st century constitution- not a document designed for the mule and wagon era.

Signer must be a U.S. Citizen, a resident of Alabama, 18 years or older, and have not signed a paper form of this petition. If under 18 years old go to Student Petition at www.gopetition.com/online/6680.html

24. Big Music Acts Should Come To Wildwood Convention Center!

In Wildwood, NJ they just built a new convention center that can hold 12,000 people. My friend Shawn wanted to start a petition. I mean for us we have to travel to philly and North Jersey to see a good concert. We don't want to do it. So if we can get alot of signitures so we can send it to the convention center staff, and bands.

25. Liberate Dreadlocks In The BVI

UPDATE 2005

Give thanks to all those ones who signed this important petition. The law
was changed in August 2003 when Chief Minister Orlando Smith took office.
Later in this same year the Caribbean Rastafari Organisation held a week
long summit in Tortola.

Former Chief Minister O'Neal was the author of the 1980 ordinance and repeatedly refused to lift the ban despite opposition to it. The order was removed following a public survey which showed a majority of islanders opposed the ban. Once more I would thank everyone for their support which helped to get this law changed and urge you all to sign the petition for the Rastafari Elders at www.gopetition.com/online/6589.html

26. Parental Abduction - Japan should sign the Hague Convention Treaty

Japan must sign the Hague Convention Treaty. My son was abducted by his mother from Canada to Japan on Feb 20th 2001 and I have not seen my son since. This has to stop. I love my son and he has a lot of family here that miss him and love him as much as I do.

Thank You for your signature.

27. Save Zambia's Elephants

The ivory trade has pushed elephants steadily toward extinction. In the 1980s, 2,000 elephants were being killed every week across Africa. Only a Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) ban on the international trade in ivory could stop the bloodshed. And yet there is constant pressure on CITES to reopen the international ivory trade.

CITES agreed to a partial lifting of the ban, but this did nothing to curb poaching, to provide adequate funding for enforcement of wildlife protection laws, or to uplift local communities. Still elephants across Africa and Asia continue to be slaughtered and ivory traded in huge quantities. Today there are only an estimated 519,461 wild elephants in Africa and approximately 30,000 wild elephants in Asia.

At the height of the international ivory trade in the 1970s and 1980s, Zambia's elephant population dwindled from 200,000 to fewer than 20,000, according to Zambia's Deputy Tourism Minister. This trend was reversed only when the international ivory ban was agreed. Any relaxation in protection for Zambia?s elephants could wipe out the remaining elephants in a very short space of time.

Zambia's elephants can earn far more for their country alive than dead. In 1989 Kenya's elephants were estimated to be worth US$25 million in tourism each year. Zambia should not allow itself to be lured by the prospect of the quick money to be gained by allowing elephants to be killed for their ivory when there is a long-term profit in keeping elephants alive.

28. Expel Greece from European Union

This petition is to expel Greece from the European Union. Greece is violating European Citizenship Convention forcing its citizens abroad to military service and denying Greek citizens right to Greek passport when applying for foreign citizenship.

This is unacceptable a day before expansion of the European Union and could create the precedence for similar situation in Poland and other new members of European Union.

The Greek citizens in the USA, mainly army enlists, are suspected to force citizens of Eastern European countries to military service in their country and block legal immigration.

29. Ban Polish citizenship to enter USA

This petition is ban Polish citizens from entering the United States on grounds other than the political asylum.
Republic of Poland is in strong violation of the basic right of emigration.

30. Human Rights for Asylum Seekers

Refugees are people who are fleeing from serious danger. ie war, political persecution, famine, economic crisis or natural disasters. In the uk asylum seekers face difficulties and barriers: widespread, indiscriminate detention; poverty; poor housing; poor access to healthcare; lack of training and employment opportunities.
In housing, lower standards are applied for families seeking asylum than for other families. The vouchers refugee families receive are set at a lower value than Income Support levels and stigmatise asylum-seekers. Many children who have lost their families and seek asylum do not receive the same care that is routinely offered to other children in need. When the Government signed up to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991, they made an exception - refugee children. Asylum seekers come here because their lives and/or the wellbeing of their families and homes are in danger. They would not choose to leave there homes and families out of choice. They are the victims of war and famine and drought and poverty and they need our help. we are a country of plenty, and it is our responsibility as a civilised, developed nation and as human beings to give these people a home and a chance and treat them with compassion and respect.
