1. Monument in Charlottesville for Heather Heyer

(from CNN)

Heather Heyer died 'fighting for what she believed in.

Heather Heyer dedicated her life to standing up for those she felt were not being heard, her family and friends said. She died fighting for her beliefs and campaigning against hate.

"She was very strong in what she felt and she spoke with conviction," Heyer's close friend and co-worker Marissa Blair told Chris Cuomo on CNN's "New Day."
"She would never back down from what she believed in. And that's what she died doing, she died fighting for what she believed in. Heather was a sweet, sweet soul and she'll never be replaced, she'll never be forgotten."

Thirty-two-year-old Heyer was killed Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd of counterprotesters gathered to oppose a "Unite the Right" rally of white nationalist and other right-wing groups. Nineteen others were injured in the incident.
A 20-year-old man from Ohio, is charged with second-degree murder in Heyer's death.

Mark Heyer said the only way to get through this tough time is to remember God teaches us to forgive.

"We need to start with forgiveness and stop all of the hate," he said.

Heather worked as a paralegal for a Charlottesville law firm, assisting clients through the bankruptcy filing process.

Heyer had just celebrated her five-year anniversary with the firm last week. Her boss, Larry Miller, said they went out for lunch for the occasion and he remembered telling her that she was a lot better than she gave herself credit for.
Miller described Heyer as precise with her work, as witty and being like family.
Co-worker Victoria Jackson said Heyer was not one to take vacation. Heyer ate lunch at her desk because she was dedicated to the needs of her clients, Jackson added.

Jackson cried as she talked about Heyer, whom she had worked with side-by-side for 18 months. Heyer told Jackson she was worried that there would be gun violence at the white nationalist rally.

"Heather said, I want to go so badly but I don't want to get shot. I don't want to die," Jackson said.

But Heyer went anyway because she wanted to stand up for what she believed in.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe praised Heyer.
"She was doing what she loved," McAuliffe said. "She was fighting for democracy, (for) free speech, to stop hatred and bigotry."

2. Justice for Maxi

Maxi Bader purchased a newly built home in Rockhampton in 2012 at the age of 19. She moved in on the 25th January 2013 and while putting her new furniture together in the house she nearly got swept off of her feet with a wall of water rushing through her new home. By 7am on the morning of the 26th January (Australia Day) 2013 the house was under a second time.
Maxi has never been able to live in her house as it has been inundated with storm water 6 times now and it is full of mould and rotting. Thieves have been in the house and stolen the ceiling fans, air conditioner units, rainwater tank, light fittings and even a toilet.
The Rockhampton Regional Council and all other parties that were involved in the sale and development of this house will not accept any blame for this house being allowed to be built in a water way as it was not listed in the Q100 flood levels even though everybody else in Rockhampton seems to have known that this new house would be a disaster for some poor person who didn't know the area.... including the council who had the previous flood records.
Developer - Rockhampton Property Holdings
Certifier - Rockhampton Building Approvals
Real Estate Agent - Freedom Properties
Plumbing & Drainage Approval - Rockhampton Regional Council
Builder - Apollo Homes
The Rockhampton Regional Council will not waiver the rates for Maxi and continue to send her bills for water that she does not use and $320 every time they send someone in to mow her lawn.
Maxi is seeking full compensation from the Rockhampton Regional Council and is asking for your support in this.

4. Stop the deletion of the Adult Entertainment License at 2190 Dundas St E , London

The adult live entertainment parlour located at 2190 Dundas Street East has been operating for a number of years under the name of Famous Flesh Gordons.

In December 2016, a new application for an adult live entertainment parlour was submitted by Paris Clubs Corporation.

The City of London Community and Protective Services Committee wants to decide whether to allow the continuation of 2190 Dundas to operate as a live adult entertainment parlour.

5. Apology to America for Canada's Prime Minister

An apology to the United States and soldiers both American and Canadian for the actions of our Canadian government and their decision to pay 10.5 million to a convicted combatant against Canada and it's allies. For Canadians who are ashamed of their Prime Ministers actions and the secretive way he went about taking tax dollars to aid a combatant who fought against Canadians and Americans alike.

6. Bring Chris Home

Christopher F. Timmreck is a United States Army combat veteran currently serving a life sentence for murder in the Georgia Department of Corrections. In 2004, very shortly after returning home from his second tour in Iraq, Christopher was involved in an incident which changed his life forever. Though Christopher acted in self defense, he was convicted of felony murder. Christopher has now served 13 years of his sentence, and is eligible for Parole in October 2018.
Despite the charges, Christopher is not a violent person. He is intelligent, kind, and deserves to live in the country he so bravely defended. This petition offers an opportunity to stand with Christopher, and let the parole board know that we want him home where he belongs.

7. Colonise the moon!

We could launch our rockets a lot easier and safer because the moon has very low gravity and little to no atmosphere. We could do a massive amount of research and learn integral lessons for colonising Mars in the future. They could hire geologists, technicians, engineers, pilots, chefs and dozens of more jobs that YOU could be responsible for.

8. GtBank must stop robbing Nigerians

I sold goods with proofs and was paid by client. The next minute Gtbank froze my account without communication. I sent several emails with proof of transaction but I was pushed to and fro. I went to their office and same thing. Nobody was ready to talk to me or find a way out.
After some weeks my account was debited without permission or without showing me the court order.

This has happened to a lot of my friends with proofs and nothing has been done. That is how GTBank maltreat innocent customers and rob their customers of their hard earned money.

This has to stop.

9. WeWantJulyan

Revd Julyan Drew is a Methodist Minister living in Newlyn, Cornwall. Over the years he has earned widespread respect and deep affection in his community which includes Mousehole, St Just and Penzance. This is due to his tireless loving service to all he meets and his involvement with RNLI, the Fire Service, youth organisations and many other local causes. Due to a health issue he requested to work part time. This has not been granted and so effectively his job is lost. He has offered to continue as a volunteer and so far this has been ignored.

10. Support Equal Wages for South Korea

South Korea, holding a robust economy in Asia and on a global scale, is renown for its rapid rate of its exponential economic growth with strong commitments to production of goods, investment in human capital, and globalization. It's positive influence towards the global economy has garnered quite the light on South Korea's momentum and dynamic system of efficiency. Fortunately, those who run the economy, both women and men, are highly praised for their "hard work" (even mentioned on The Economist). Yet 57% of the female population actively participate in the workforce, discounting the discouraged workers. (check out further at: Meaning, more than half of the females take part in the economic, political, and social contribution to the domestic status quo, yet still meets disparity in their ends and wages albeit the fact that their equates to that of what a male does in the exact same job.

This is truly a matter of privilege in a society where the belief that a man should take a more prominent role in the workforce. Mainstream media and society most often exclusively sheds light on the corporations and politics that are 99% infiltrated by men. Meaning, we do not see the rest of the working force that continually runs the economy. "The statistical increase in the quantity of employed women has not correlated with the equality of wage, as the gender wage gap reported in 2013 was 36.3%, the worst of all OECD nations present in the data." I highlight, "the worst." (cited from the actual OECD website, gender wage gap tab bar).

The Economist (2013) has published its fifth annual “glass-ceiling index”. It combines data on higher education, workforce participation, pay, child-care costs, maternity and paternity rights, business-school applications and representation in senior jobs into a single measure of where women have the best—and worst—chances of equal treatment in the workplace. Each country’s score is a weighted average of its performance on ten indicators. South Korea ranks the lowest of all OECD countries as it has the large wage gap and women make up only around 15% of government, underrepresented in management positions and on company boards. In South Korea, just 2% of corporate directors are female. Similarly, fewer women than men have completed tertiary education and are part of the labour force. -->

South Korea's focal points of gender economic disparity presents as follows,
1) Worst wage gap among OECD nations
2) 2% of corporate directors is taken up by women
3) 93% of Koreans surveyed in 2010 believe women should have equal rights to men, and among them, 71% believe more changes are needed before that goal is achieved.
4) According to UNDP Gender Inequality Index, Korea ranked 10th, higher than any Western European or North American country except the Netherlands
5) Wage Gap disparity of 36.3% (marked as "Worst out of all industrialized nations by OECD"

It is time to break down the useless glass ceiling and the discrimination on women. As a key player and influencer in the OECD nations, we hope to see South Korea's initiative will have a ripple effect towards local nations as well, as this discriminatory action is a widespread phenomenon in Asia in general.

11. Art Exhibition for Khadija Saye

If like me, you have been touched by the recent Grenfell Tower atrocity and would like to give back in some way, please sign this petition to see Khadija Saye's photography exhibited in one of London's most high profile art galleries. Khadija was a budding photographer on the cusp of success but her journey was cut short by the awful and avoidable Grenfell Tower fire. On the day of the fire, she had met with an Art Director with a view to showcasing her work, this makes the ensuing tragedy all the more heartbreaking.

Outside of showcasing her talent, this petition and ultimately the exhibit will be a way to raise awareness for not just Khadija's work, but for all the victims whom will not get the chance to realise their potential and act as a reminder that the fight for justice continues.

12. Demand for explanation from Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore with regards to Pink Dot Advertisement

The Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore (ASAS) has weighed in on the recent furor over a Pink Dot 2017 ad found at Cathay Cineleisure.

In a conversation with Marketing, an ASAS spokesperson said that all advertisements in Singapore must comply with the Singapore Code of Advertising Practice (SCAP), and that the premise is that all advertisements must be “legal, decent, honest and truthful”.

Noting the Public Order Act 2009 (Chapter 257A), ASAS explained that the organisers of Pink Dot may promote the event as long as they possess the necessary permit to hold it.

ASAS also cited the SCAP’s General Principles, specifically under its “Family values” section 10.1, where advertisements should not “downplay the importance of the family as a unit and foundation of society.”

There is a severe lack of transparency with regards to the decision process. The chairman of ASAS, Prof Tan Sze Wee, also being a member of Barker Road Methodist Church, needs to step forward to explain and promise the fairness or due process and the decision was not made under the influence of his religious view.


We as a people must be educated and do our civil duty to protect our rights and the rights of others. State attorney Aramis Ayala has done everything but the job that I voted, and we elected her to do. Instead she has committed crimes against her constituents and must be removed from office immediately. Luckily for us, there is a process to do just this. Please sign this petition and lets take our justice system and our country back from those who violating our rights and the integrity of the country we love so much.


14. The Crown Prosecution Service to reconsider their decision....

I am very limited to the information i can disclose regarding the background of this case to share with everyone so they have an understanding as I am fearful this could impair the decision to the CPS. But, I will try to be as informative as possible and I hope people can understand this.
Today I received information regarding a male who allegedly historically sexually assaulted two children when they were 6 and 8 years old (2007). This male, who has a long standing history of sexual incidents and violence towards women and children, is well known by the police, local community and other local authorities. He has had all his children taken from his care permanently and received prison sentences for violence against women. He has intimidated and threatened the family and the children to stay quiet.
Today i was informed how CPS have refused to continue with their case against him due to MINOR discrepancies.
This was appealed against twice by the DC who lead this investigation as they believed in this case so much. These, now young adults did not get their chance to have their say in court due to someone in CPS saying there is a slight doubt and the COST is too great to send it to court when there is a chance this person could walk free !!
His history was not taken into account or the reasons behind what they saw as these "discrepancies".
One of these children has been diagnosed with PTSD and made numerous attempts on their life after what happened and the other has said they would rather be dead than live life in the body they were born into.
All they wanted was their chance to stand in court and be heard. They knew there was a chance he could walk free but to make it to court and have their say was imperative. Now, due to COST and minor discrepancies from a person who knows nothing of this case just a bunch of notes, the DC even begged for them to give the children an opportunity to tell their side to a jury and for them to make the decision. This was refused.
These children put their faith in the justice system, opened up old wounds and faced a world of torment in doing so.
This man during this investigation approached their home and made threats. Warnings were put in place and he was told to stay away. Now this has been dropped he is free to do what he wants again.
Once again these Children are left confused and feel completely let down by a judicial system they put their faith into.
All these children want is a chance for justice and to be fairly heard by a jury in a court of law where ALL facts will be heard and questions regarding any discrepancies can be answered fairly by them.
They need closure and a chance.
After all they have suffered how can anyone put a price on that!
With this petition I am hoping people will sign and support them, I am wanting to present this petition to the police, CPS and the Government.
Things need to change where sexual offenders are concerned,
Their victims deserve the right to stand and be heard without having to fight for it.
I hope you will support me in this case to help give these children some hope. I am also hoping for a positive result in helping bring this case to trial. I thank you for taking the time to read and sign this.
Thank you again.

15. Justice

16. Justice for Nancy Bailey

Nancy Bailey, a 64 year-old U.S. citizen, humanitarian and child advocate in Guatemala needs our advocacy. She has saved the lives of and provided brighter futures for thousands of Guatemalan children over the last 26 years. She is currently fighting for her own future, wrongly accused of child trafficking.

Adoption has become criminalized in Guatemala due to grossly inaccurate blanket accusations that all adoption providers and practices were corrupt. In a country wrought with poverty and corruption, an individual is considered and treated as guilty until proven innocent. It will be nearly impossible for Nancy to receive a fair trial without U.S. intervention.

Background :

-For 26 years, Nancy Bailey has been in service to the children of Guatemala providing a loving safe haven at her children's home, Semillas de Amor (Seeds of Love)
-Semillas de Amor is a model for excellent care for orphaned and abandoned children - with low caregiver ratios, good schooling, and counsel for children dealing with the trauma of abandonment.
-Semillas de Amor has placed many children into permanent families through international adoption
-Despite adoptions closing in 2009 and losing adoption related income, Nancy remained steadfast in her life's work to keep Semillas de Amor open for the children in her care
-While out of the country briefly in 2012, Nancy was charged with child trafficking when the Guatemalan authorities raided Semillas de Amor and her personal home
-The charges are based on alleged irregularities found in 3 cases at Semillas de Amor
-Nancy returned to Guatemala in December 2014 to be with her children despite knowing she would likely be arrested
-For the first 16 months of her incarceration (without a trial), Nancy was on house arrest with no supervision
-For the last year, Nancy has been detained in prison with a few intermittent hospital stays due to fibromyalgia and respiratory issues
-Nancy had continued to fundraise to keep the home open despite her unjust incarceration and failing health
-Over the last two years, Nancy’s health and spirits have deteriorated greatly while the children of Semillas are being raised without their "mother"

In addition to the unjust treatment thus far, we have many reasons to believe Nancy Bailey will not receive a fair trial in Guatemala:

- Mass corruption in the Guatemala judicial system - Guatemala currently ranked 40th most corrupt nation (out of 176)
- Anti-American sentiment in Guatemala
- The criminalization of adoption via the grossly inaccurate blanket accusations that all Guatemalan-U.S. adoptions are corrupt

19. For Chris to be allowed to go to Kilee's Senior Prom

Kilee is a Senior at North Scott High School in Eldridge, IA. Her boyfriend Chris is a previous NS graduate. Chris turned 21 on Feb.17th,2017. The schools fine print on dance tickets say only ages 14-21. The school indicates that the cut off is at age 20, and no older. The fine print has now been changed, since the fine print was worded opposing to what they intended. Chris and Kilee have had a healthy steady relationship since December 27th, 2014 with parent approval. This is Kilee's Senior Prom, and Chris just turned 21, so he is no longer (according to policy) allowed to go. Chris has attended 5/8 high school dances with Kilee, and has caused no issue. The couple would be willing to be breathalyzed before prom, and after prom. Along with, before post prom, and after post prom. Kilee is very involved in school. She volunteers, cheers, participates in FFA, and is a violinist. While putting in all those hours, she also puts in time at a local Ice Cream Shop (Whitey's). Chris on the other hand volunteers, previously was a football player, and works as a local security guard. Please sign this petition if you think that circumstances for Chris, and Kilee are different, and he should be able to go to her SENIOR PROM and LAST HIGH SCHOOL DANCE! Thank you!

**The problem is "If we have to let you go, we have to let every 21 year old go". Please help Kilee and Chris show the school that circumstances are different, and everyone is aware of that! Thank you for your time, I hope you consider being a part of helping a dream come true! A girl's Senior prom with her best friend, and boyfriend!

20. More powers for security officers

The safety of security officers and the public need to be endorsed more than what they are at this point In time. Security officers go to work feeling relaxed, happy, cheerful and willing to go to work. These security officers should have the rights to go to work un-harmed and also should return home un-harmed. The safety of the public unfortunately is being over seen as many customers or patrons should have a good experience while shopping. It is a given right for our patrons of the public to not have to fear or feel unsafe while doing there day to day business. The safety of staff members needs to taken more seriously as the drug crime increases which makes it more violent as we're all aware of it, so action needs to be taken. Thieves and criminals continuously entre Rockingham shopping centre while being intoxicated on drugs and alcohol after they have been told continuously that they have been banned and to not enter the shopping centre again appropriately and nicely. When these security are telling the offenders to remove themselves from the shopping centre at times they get aggressive, threatened, abused, spat on and assaulted. By law security officers have the right to use reasonable force if offenders refuse to leave the premises but centre management at Rockingham shopping centre say ''its a hands off policy''.

MCS security (CEO) has given the security officers the rights to endorse having hand cuffs, batons and pepper spray. The (CEO) of MCS security has said they will sign the documents for these rights but it depends on the centre management if they're willing to sign it to confirm the rights. The public of Rockingham and surrounding suburbs have spoken to security staff on several occasions underlining there fears and or concerns of there safety. Some patrons have said they're willing to shop a other shopping centres because the crime and violence is outrageous and disgraceful behaviour. At times police officers are prioritized to emergency calls, but the first on the scene is security officers. The police officers of the public wouldn't have to attend the confrontations as many times as what they do if juveniles, thieves and violent offenders would listen to security officers.

21. More cat emojis

There are only very few cat emojis on Apple phones or any other type of phone. This is a disrespect to the species, cats deserve much more recognition and people would love more cat emojis to express with, not just the unrealistic ones. There are many different types of cat, not just tabby, and they deserve a chance to be included in the emoji selection and to be used daily.

22. John's Law

John was attacked 2.5yrs ago he sustained life changing injuries and waited 2.5 yrs to get justice. By the time it got to court his health had deteriorated so much that he was unable to give good evidence. two of his attackers were found not guilty and one guilty and the one who was found guilty was only sentenced to 2ys 9 mths. We would like the justice system to rethink their sentencing on such life changing injuries. John has said if the system changed its sentencing and made it stiffer then perhaps this would set a president and send out a message that the the uk is not a place to be messed with. Come on UK enough is enough lets get this sentencing sorted out once and for all and save someone else going through this ordeal.


Governor Terry McAuliffe,Too many babies & children are being hurt .The best interest of those children is overlooked due to "who knows who" in certain small towns where everybody knows everybody & favoritism is shown, Judges become bias & hearings are unfair in JDR courtrooms across the country, therefore, a change in venue to an unbiased fair Judge in another county who will look at & hear evidence to determine the best interest of the children in a timely manner is imperative.

24. Petition the NBA to Help Defund DAPL by Ending its Partnership with BBVA Compass

The Dakota Access Pipeline is funded by a number of banks including BBVA Securities, a subsidiary of BBVA Compass. The National Basketball Association partners with and is sponsored by BBVA Compass. To date, BBVA Securities has invested over $275 million in the Dakota Access Pipeline. The NBA is complicit in the funding and construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the atrocities committed against the Standing Rock Sioux through its partnership with BBVA Compass.
Less than two months ago, the United States Army Corps of Engineers halted the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in order to conduct an environmental impact study. This study would have likely shown that which we already know, but has been halted and seemingly forgotten under the current presidential administration. Over the past seven years, over 9 million gallons of crude oil have been spilled on the United States, causing irreversible damage to the tune of over $1 billion. In fact, The US Army Corps of Engineers changed the original route of the pipeline in order to protect the city of Bismarck's water supply in the event of a spill. An oil spill along the current route would threaten the Standing Rock Sioux’s water supply, culture, and way of life. If there is concern of an oil spill negatively impacting the people of Bismarck, shouldn’t we be equally concerned for the Standing Rock Sioux? Furthermore, the Standing Rock Sioux believe this land to be sacred, containing burial sites of their ancestors, and protected by the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868, Not only is this a matter of environmental justice, but it is clearly a matter of human rights and racial justice as well.
The NBA stood up against HB2 in North Carolina by moving the NBA All-Star game from Charlotte to New Orleans. Now we ask that the NBA stand for Standing Rock and for the Standing Rock Sioux by ending its partnership with BBVA Compass.

26. President of the United States - Please Exonerate Orlando Carter

Exonerate Orlando Carter of bank fraud - a crime he did not commit, proven by certified records from PNC Bank

In 2008, the DOJ indicted and convicted Orlando Carter for bank fraud based upon a false claim from National Commercial Capital (kna PNC Bank) that he was liable for a $4 million loan. Rather than verify bank records, FBI agent Kevin Gormley and AUSA Richard Chema presumed the loan was valid.

In 2015, Carter secured certified documents from PNC Bank which prove there was no loan. The government now hinders Carter’s efforts and the federal courts hide behind its "rules”.

Carter has served 8 years of a 15 year sentence. We ask the President of the United States to correct the DOJ's egregious mistake for case 1:08-cr-051, Southern District, Ohio. Without a $4 million loan, Chema prosecuted Carter without grounds or jurisdiction. Carter is innocent. We respectfully request the President of the United States exonerate Orlando Carter.

The complete details of the injustice against Orlando Carter are available by video and explanation in written form at the following link:

27. Gail's Law to prevent deaths by fatigued drivers

My mother Gail Oxford Chain born 11-04-1956 was killed in a very tragic car accident on 08/07/2016 at 5:56 AM.

At 5300 Sam Houston PKWY & 6200 Gaona, she was stopped at red light in middle lane on the feeder Rd, when out of nowhere another driver going at least 80mph or more in a 45mph zone struck her from behind & swung around hitting her again on driver's side. EMS & Police later arrived at the scene. The driver walked away without a scratch on her & gets to live her life like nothing ever happened. Not even getting to know the hurt & pain she has put my family through. If she was so tired why wasn't she headed home the opposite way? But instead she was going to visit her father in Bay area resort, which doesn't open doors till 8:00am & she passed by like two red lights & a block. My mom had no chance or choice in the matter, but the driver did when she put her keys in the ignition. No charges were pressed against the driver and she went home the same night.

28. Outlaw the practice of jungle justice in Nigeria

Following the emergence of the gruesome images of a young person being beaten, turtored and burnt to death over the theft of a phone it is time for our lawmakers to sit up, take notice and take action over the very common practice of jungle justice in Nigeria. A practice where individuals or groups of persons take the law into their own hands and mete our severe and mostly fatal punishment to people allegedly caught committing offences.

The reputation of Nigeria as a lawless nation is gathering momentum with the numerous incidents of such gruesome barbarity taking place and pictures or video recordings making their way to social media for the entire world to see. The police don't seem to realize that it is their duty to intervene in such situations and protect the life of the victim regardless of their crime. They seem grossly ignorant of the basic principle of law and order that a person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and thus must be protected from any form of non judicial punishment. Instead what we have sometimes seen is police officers standing by and looking on while these acts are unfolding.

This cannot continue to happen in the 20th century. In a nation filled with educated and enlightened people. This practice must no longer be condoned in a nation where law and order must be upheld. No one must be allowed to take the law into their own hands.

We need the government to pass a bill to henceforth outlaw Jungle Justice in Nigeria and any perpetrators brought to greater justice in a court of law. Also anyone or persons taking part in acts that result in any loss of lives must become liable to face the firing squad.

Please support this petition today. Thank you.


Today a 7 year old boy was beaten and burnt to death for stealing garri (cassava flour). A lady was killed for stealing a cellphone sometime ago, Four young men were slaughtered in daylight for allegedly stealing gadgets some years back in Rivers state and nothing was done to the perpetrators. A woman was lynched in the northern part of Nigeria recently and the accused acquitted without justice for the dead. In Akwa Ibom, children are accused of witchcraft and thereafter summarily murdered, All in daylight, All with bystanders, filming and taking pictures while a human is snuffed to death.

This has to stop! These crimes against humanity are rarely investigated and the bystanders are never even considered as accomplices.

This is a barbaric act and the earlier something is done about this the better because the unity preached is threatened by such acts.

A legislative policy or law should be enacted for such heinous crime and the courts should be the only place to seek for justice whatsoever.

We simply can't take laws into our hands.

Sign this petition today and lend your voice to this cause so we put an end to this.. It could be you or me tomorrow... God forbid.

30. Justice for the hungry boy of Lagos

A 7 year old boy was lynched in Lagos, Nigeria over claim that he attempted to steal garri.

The Nigeria Government should bring the culprits to book and do something about "Jungle Justice" fast.
