1. Freedom for Justin Cheong

Whereas: The life of Justin Cheong is the story of an American hero. Justin immigrated to the United States as a high school student, seeking to advance his education. He stayed to advance the principles of freedom, democracy, and equality. Now, Justin Cheong is held captive. He is imprisoned in a facility that holds immigrant detainees—an American concentration camp—and he is fighting for his own freedom and for the freedom of the young men who share his captivity. Behind prison walls, Justin continues his life’s work, pursuing the dream of a free and democratic nation in which “all men are created equal.” This petition exists so that Justin’s brave struggle will not be confined within prison walls. This petition demands freedom for Justin Cheong.

1 The case of Man Tou Cheong

Justin was born in 1990 in Macau, China, a small coastal territory just west of Hong Kong. His parents named him Man Tou Cheong. As a teenager, Man Tou gained citizenship in the nation of Portugal, and acquired a student visa to attend high school in America. He traveled to Minnesota, where he adopted the name Justin, and led a successful high school student career. His bright mind and obvious talents propelled him to advance to the University of California at Berkeley.

In California, Justin was able to thrive, finding direction and purpose to channel his great abilities. He became a student activist, championing the defense of public education and building a movement to unite people against all forms of bigotry and oppression.

Through his activist work, Justin met Liana Mulholland, whom he befriended and eventually married. Liana’s parents, both AFSCME union officials, became Justin’s legal U.S. “sponsors” so that Justin could stay and live in America after completing his education. Justin and Liana made a home together in Detroit, Liana’s hometown. They have been married for five years.

America is Justin’s home. He entered the country legally in 2007, and has remained in the country legally since then. His life is here, the people closest to him are here, and his hopes and dreams are here. His character and good standing are unimpeachable.

But these facts by themselves were not enough to protect Justin’s freedom. On Thursday, June 30, federal agents sought out and arrested Justin Cheong. Within hours, they had transported Justin to an immigrant detention facility in Monroe, Michigan, where Justin has been held without bond since that time. Justin has no criminal record and is not suspected of committing any crime—the federal agents held him captive on only a single charge: being born in the wrong country.

2 Immigration and the new Fugitive Slave Law

It is the most defining political issue of our time. In the United States and around the world, millions of people have relocated across national borders; it is the largest wave of global human migration since World War II. This modern migration has absolutely perplexed the world’s most dominant powers—nations have militarized their borders to combat peaceful and unarmed civilians, and politicians now rise or fall on the basis of their appeal either to a progressive internationalism or to xenophobic hatred. This polarized climate imposes new and intensified hardships on the already-embattled migrant populations.

The hardship of Justin Cheong is entirely the product of this anti-immigrant hysteria: government enforced, legally sanctioned hysteria. Justin committed no offense. He pursued what every American presumes to have the right to do—to move to or from any free and democratic nation in the world, in accordance with local rules and customs. He chose as his home a nation whose principles reflect his own—the belief that all human beings have inalienable rights. But Justin Cheong now sits in prison navigating an obscure and arbitrary legal process for immigrants in which human rights—and the human beings themselves—are thoroughly alienable. This process is separated from the rest of American law, operates outside the framework of Constitutional rights, and increasingly moves with the mechanical redundancy of an assembly line towards a predetermined outcome.

America’s immigration enforcement system is now the modern version of the Fugitive Slave Law.

Much like the 1850 law designed to further the apprehension of black Americans in the North—whether “fugitives” or not—today’s immigration system bears far stronger resemblance to kidnapping and enslavement than it does to any pursuit of justice. Most immigrants are deported to countries in which they would be working for miniscule wages for American mega-corporations, spending their scarce resources to buy American products, but never having the right to enter the very nation whose stupendous wealth they have created by their own toil. The torch of the Statue of Liberty does not shine its welcome inside the walls of America’s vast prison system for immigrants.

But there is one torch of freedom you can find there, behind the iron bars: his name is Justin Cheong.

3 Life in an American concentration camp

In the decaying town of Monroe, Michigan, a specialized prison holds Justin Cheong captive along with dozens of other immigrants. Some of the immigrants, like Justin, came to the United States with student visas to get an education. Many of the immigrants are refugees from Mexico and Central America, displaced from their countries of origin by the poverty and violence that American economic policy has created abroad. All of the immigrants hope to find peace and freedom.

Like Justin, most immigrants there are denied bond, held hostage for months at a time until the sheer oppressiveness of their captivity can compel them to sign papers agreeing to deportation. The standard procedure for denying bond is to designate an immigrant as a “flight risk,” which is perhaps the most ironic of all possible legal designations for people who are trying to stay where they are. The internal regime of the prison is designed to instill the stigma of being unwelcome and the feeling of powerlessness—the prison management works to aggravate racial and ethnic divisions among the inmates, to turn people against each other by enticing detainees to serve as the “good” prisoner who can enforce the regime against all the “bad” prisoners.

Justin’s unflinching dignity rises above the twisted social experiment. Justin is the advocate and beacon of hope for his fellow inmates. When Justin started to spend time drawing some fine portraits of the other prisoners, deep interest grew towards this talented young man, and a new sensation filled the air in the facility—there was kindness, and beauty, and friendship. Justin brought those things inside the prison walls. And he also brought his leadership, his fight for freedom, and his unshaken belief that oppressed people can and must stand up for one another as the most powerful means to stand up for themselves. Thanks to Justin’s efforts, a number of inmates have obtained legal representation through his own attorneys, and he stands as a devoted representative for hope and courage in a captive population, a proud and glowing torch where people are otherwise expected to be broken and invisible. Even in the darkest of circumstances, Justin shines as a wonderful human being, a champion of the oppressed, and a great American.

4. An American immigrant, civil rights activist, and champion of the oppressed

To his friends and loved ones, to his fellow activists, and to the countless people he has reached through his dedicated work, Justin represents the best qualities of people and brings out the best in others. In California and Michigan, Justin has been a frontline advocate for public education, for immigrant rights, and for the cause of equality for America’s segregated black and Latino communities. Justin quickly grew to become a respected leader in the civil rights organization, BAMN (By Any Means Necessary). Inherently fond of people, Justin has reached out to so many others—students, teachers, immigrants. And as a result, others have grown very fond of Justin. Through his compassion and enthusiasm, Justin has brought people together, young and old, people of all races and nationalities. Today, Justin carries on the tradition of leaders like Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Like them, Justin represents America’s highest ideals—he is a champion for freedom.

Champion of those who groan beneath
Oppression's iron hand:
In view of penury, hate, and death,
I see thee fearless stand.
Still bearing up thy lofty brow,
In the steadfast strength of truth,
In manhood sealing well the vow
And promise of thy youth.

-John Greenleaf Whittier, 1832
To William Lloyd Garrison

2. Resentencing of a Juvenile Life Without Parole

I am writing a petition in regards of my son Donald Williams. He was sentenced under the juvenile lifer law at the age of 16.

My son was charged with 1st degree murder, even though his co-defendant admitted to shooting and killing the victim. The case revolved around the delivery of drugs.

His co-defendant broke his silence before being sentenced and stated: "Mr. Williams had no knowledge of my plans". In addition to the statement my son Donald was also offered a plea deal to serve 6 years. Due to his innocence, he declined the offer because he had no involvement in this matter. In light of this Donald was a High School student with a G.P.A of 3.0 looking towards a bright future.

I believe it was not possible for Donald to receive a fair trial 23 years ago in (1993)... because, first my son is of the Afro-American race, the victim being Caucasian and the son of a Macomb County police officer. The case was widely publicized with my son being a juvenile being tried as an adult for just being guilty by association. He be-friend his co-defendant for only two days, which led him into making an unwise decision! It is also quite evident that my son had poor since of judgment in picking his friends. Nonetheless, he took time to personally apologize to the victim's family.

Additionally, I know I still have a difficult battle to fight. He has now served twenty three years, and fighting for parole. I feel that Donald deserves to be given the opportunity to return to the community. By signing my petition, you will shined light for Mr. Williams, and those who are in similar situations JUVENILE LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE.

Thank you for taking the time and consideration of signing my petition!

Yours Sincerely,
a Mother's Tears

PLEASE ANSWER A MOTHER'S PRAYERS.

3. Stop Children being Kidnapped in Pakistan

The news of the kidnapping of 712 children in Punjab sent a chill down my spine. According to data, in 2015, some 1,200 children were kidnapped in the province and the figure for the current year is 767; while 312 children were abducted in Lahore.
It is shocking that Punjab is a safe haven for kidnappers. These children are kidnapped for many reasons like pedophilia, ransom money, trade, and beggary through children, transformation into militants or suicide bombers, and even for extracting vital organs of the kidnapped. One can realize the pain and suffering of the families of the kidnapped children.

We are signing this petition for General Raheel Sharif (COAS PAKISTAN) as we have already lost all our hopes from governing body of Pakistan. They are sleeping and taking no notice of this until there is going to be threat for their own children. They have failed to stop this hideous crime against humanity and our nation.

No matter i am living abroad, but being a democratic citizen of Pakistan, i feel its my duty to raise voice against this serious issue.

Regards: Adeel Hashmi

4. Give Garland a Hearing

After the death of Antonin Scalia in February this year, there has been a gap in the Supreme Court leaving only eight Justices serving instead of nine. This fact fractures the functionality of the Court, allowing for ties to settle precedents back down to lower courts. President Barack Obama has put forth a nominee to fill this gap: Merrick Garland, currently the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He has over 25 years of legal experience but has been denied a hearing by the Senate of the United States to consider him.

The Constitution speaks on this as well. Article II, Section II states, “and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint… Judges of the supreme Court…”. This shows the responsibility and job of the President to nominate Justices and the obligation of the Senate to provide advice on the decision. By not allowing a hearing, the Senate is denying any possible feedback on the Constitutional obligations of a sitting President. It is their duty to hold a hearing to, at a minimum, give advice on the current nominee.

5. Body Cameras for LEO's in Missouri

It is our belief that having Body Cams required for every patrolling LEO in Missouri will not only help to exonerate the majority of Police Officers but it will also work to weed out the smaller percentage of Officers who have no business wearing a Uniform and a Badge.

It will take most of the questions and hearsay out of the terrible instances where there has been a crime committed and at the same time it would work to bridge the gap between LEO's and our communities.

With your signature we'll work towards introducing legislation to make sure that LEO interaction with civilians are safer and everyone is held more accountable for their own actions.

6. Dismantle the United Nations

The Declaration of Human Rights, which is the initialising document of the United Nations, was a laudable & wonderful effort to encapsulate the genuine desires of the politicians who signed it in 1948.

Since then even the first few words cannot be said to have been achieved. "ARTICLE 1, All human beings are born free & equal in dignity & rights."

It cannot be emphasised enough that these words, although evident & true, are violated every second of every day in all parts of the world & the United Nations cannot be said to have improved rights for any human being except, maybe those who occupy positions of power.

We see vast resources being funnelled into this organisation & we also see them constantly begging for further resources to cover their expenses.

We see enormous edifices of governance, huge conferences & meetings during which many resolutions & agendas are produced.

None of which have successfully prevented war, famine, disease or the loss of homelands & resources.

We hear of resolutions being vetoed by one vote against many over & over. This indicates a toothless tiger shackled to a globalist predator regime which, far from liberating the people of the world, is actually creating a global prison in which all people are subjected to draconian & domineering control.

I therefore propose that the existing United Nations be declared unfit for purpose & be dismantled before it achieves it's unsavoury objectives as laid out in Agenda 21 & 2030.

These Agendas may seem benign on the surface but the reality of them is the wholesale destruction of diversity of culture & the destruction of nations "for the greater good" - supposedly.

We need international cooperation without doubt, but we do not need an expensive, useless pariah dictating a policy in which human beings are to continue to be treated as just another commodity or resource in a world controlled by internationalist corporations & the sinister few extremely wealthy individuals who own them.

7. Prosecute Hillary Clinton

When Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she knowingly used an un-secured email account to transmit classified data.

The proof can be seen here in this videowhere FBI director James Comey admits that she broke the law on several different occasions.

8. Support Video Camera Monitoring in Care Homes

My nan came out of a care home bruised up and dehydrated, and she was in hospital for months before she passed away.

An investigation into this tragedy was inconclusive. Carers' evidence opposed what we saw, so now I am campaigning for all care homes to have cameras in public areas to protect the vulnerable. I want justice for my nan.

10. Right to use Sodium Pentathol, (truth serum), to recover memories in court

I would like to prove that myself and others have been the victims of crimes, which we are unable to prove, but we know who the perpetrators are.

Recovering the perpetrators' memories, when they will not voluntarily do so, will enable justice to be done. It will also ensure that the right perpetrators are tried and prosecuted, because occasionally the New Zealand justice system has wrongfully prosecuted some people.

Please sign this petition, if you care about justice.

11. Justice for Ginger and all gingers in Kodaikanal

Justice for Ginger!!

Ginger was a lucky little puppy when KSPCA team rescued her from the street and fed her and made her well. She became happy and healthy and was adopted by Ram Dev. She filled the Seven Sisters Farm with love and joy. One great girl! But unfortunately as happy as she and other dogs in nearby farms were, they were wooed with poisoned food and all of them died on Saturday, April 9th, 2016. Ginger along with six other dogs were victims of poisoning. This is the fourth case to Kodaikanal SPCA knowledge, it has happened twice to George Roshan’s dogs and once each near VGP area and Pallangi side. Those are only the cases we know about, there are probably many more. Ram Dev filed an FIR and KSPCA followed up with the animal husbandry doctor for autopsy. It's was very sad to go through the process of getting the autopsy done but we had to do it.

We have to get justice for Ginger and all other Gingers in town who are victims of deliberate poisoning and brutal killings in Kodaikanal.

The Police Department was so understanding and so we want to thank you, Inspector Muruganandan, for your immediate response and investigation of the case. Your role was essential. A letter was copied to the Collector, SP, AWBI, DFO and DSP. Ginger my girl, you died for a reason, you brave girl! May your soul rest in peace. We want justice! Stop killing dogs! Stop using poison, bombs, traps and harmful pesticides that kill domestic and wild animals.

We request the authorities to bring strict laws and punishment against people keeping poison, bombs, traps and harmful pesticides in their fields that would kill the domestic and wild animals in Kodaikanal! Such items should not be sold in Kodaikanal!

Let’s work together to change this: please sign this petition and pass it on.

12. Enough is Enough: Petition for harsher punishment for crimes of RAPE and MURDER in SA

Every week there are newspaper and police reports of children being brutally raped and murdered at the hands of ruthless savages. The attacks are becoming more and more violent in nature and more frequent.

We stand together with the mothers, sisters, and daughters of South Africa, in a desperate call for an end to the current deaths and rape of our children. Minor jail sentences have no meaning to these killers and rapist.

Crime does not effect any particular race or creed rather we are all effected and victims of crime. It's time something is done to solve this problem.

13. Justice for Juwan "Chico" Tavarez

14. Release Florence Hartmann Petition

Unatoč pokušajima Majki Srebrenice da je zaštite, gđa. Florence Hartmann, francuska novinarka, borac za ljudska prava i bivša glasnogovornica Tužiteljstva u Hagu je uhićena 24.03.2016. u Hagu i zadržana u zgradi suda, a potom prebačena u pritvorsku jedinicu Haškog tribunala.

15. Keep Jean in Japan

I have been living and working in Japan for the past two years. I was employed up until October 2015, when I was unjustly fired after quitting my job due to unfair practices. I was promised 3 months according to my contract but was given less then a month to find alternative employment.

It has been hard and I have not been able to locate employment. Now my visa is going to expire in less then a month and I will be forced out of the country as I do not have work. The thing is, I fell in love with this country.

I made great friends. I learned a beautiful language. I had the experience and time of my life. I just want to continue living here. But antiquated and blind laws are making this impossible.

私が住んでいると、過去2年間日本で働いてきました。私は、私は不当に起因する不公正な慣行に仕事を辞めた後に解雇された2015年10月、まで使用しました。私は私の契約に応じて3ヶ月の約束されたが、代替雇用を見つけるために月に少ないしを与えられました。それは困難であったと私は雇用を見つけることができませんでした。今私のビザは、月、その後以内に期限切れになるだろうと私は仕事を持っていないように私は国の外に強制されます。事は、私はこの国と恋に落ちた、です。私は偉大な友人を作りました。私は美しい言語を学びました。私は私の人生の経験と時間を過ごしました。私はちょうどここでの生活を続けていきたいです。しかし、時代遅れと盲目の法律が、これは不可能にしています。

16. Sleep in peace Chris Rico Santiago

People need to realize Christian J Santiago was very loved in Bronx New York. He had family and friends every where in the Norwood area in the Bronx. It sucks he had to die so young, he didn't get the chance to experience life the way he really wanted to.

It just hurts me so much because I seen him days before he died. We were supposed to get tattoos together, he told me he was going to Florida to spend time with he family out there & he didn't even get the chance to enjoy himself out there.

Please let there be justice for Christian J. Santiago! We all love you brother . Sleep up! You're God's gift for real brother.

17. Illuminati Testimony re: The Bill Cosby Matter

Recently an article was posted on line whereby a person claiming to be a former member of the powerful clandestine, centuries old organization, the Illuminati, claimed they were responsible for intentionally acting to destroy Bill Cosby's reputation.

A person by the name of Norman Brokaw, alleges in the article that this organization for which he was formerly associated intentionally targeted the comedian Bill Cosby with the intent to destroy his reputation by hiring several women to lie about being raped.

This was done to Cosby, Brokaw alleges, because Cosby made his intentions known that he as an African American was a potential buyer interested in purchasing a television network in the United States, NBC. Cosby had been greatly successful in helping to strengthen the ratings of the network with his popular Cosby show featuring his TV family the Huxtables.

According to the article an unidentified woman associated with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency came out and alleged that she was paid to destroy Cosby's reputation. This is what has appeared on the internet and can be read at the link below.

Our petition has been drafted to encourage people to move towards calling for a full investigation of these allegations by both public and private investigative agencies. However, we want these people cited in the article below, starting with Mr. Brokaw, and whosoever else that claims to have been approached to participate in Cosby's destruction to come forward and be publicly deposed, as well as sign an affidavit under oath, during a public press conference that these things they have said are true. This should be done under the penalty of imprisonment of up to five years if what they have stated is found to be a lie. We want these depositions to be carried out under the auspices of a Court within the District of Columbia, in Washington D.C. This needs to be done in front of Cosby's lawyers, and other notable observers of the process, who have seen these type of character assassinations historically occur against African American celebrities who attempt at the displeasure of others to act in a progressive manner.

We cite what was attempted by our own FBI to leaders of the civil rights movement in the 1960s and 70s through the surreptitious actions of COINTELPRO. Such activity is intended to undermine the confidence of African American people for their African American leaders and celebrities throughout their nation. This type of character assassination, post slavery, dates back to the early 20th century of approximately 100 years with the intent of multiple government agencies, as well as private ones too, to destroy the credibility of the Black nationalist leader, Marcus Garvey, and his popular United Negro Improvement Association. This type of activity has even gone on abroad when someone in a foreign country, in Asia, Africa, or South America, have been elected democratically by popular vote. If the winner is one that is other than those favored by these clandestine powers for their own vested interests they have been destroyed.

Quite often the method of destruction has been physical death by assassination leading to the perpetuation of social upheaval in the nation. In Cosby's case, if these allegations are true, it has been a slow death by character assassination. We are not here to support Cosby, if he in deed take advantage of his accusers but we are here to address what we are seeing as a continual assault on the integrity of the African American community by attacking our most visible members. Thus, at this time we are asking you to sign our petition if you believe as we do that the people who have made these allegations that Cosby has been targeted should come forth and be publicly deposed in a court of law, so that the formal investigation can begin.

Following a consultation process involving its 8,000 members leading children’s advocacy group DCA Warriors in partnership with KOD Lyons have launched a policy document for its members for the 2016 General Election campaign. The document can be viewed below, and is an important grassroots response to the need for children’s rights to be a priority.

DCA Warriors – Cherishing All Children Equally 2016.

We ask those looking to be the next leaders of Ireland to honour the words written in the 1916 Proclamation which “declares its resolve to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and of all its parts, cherishing all of the children of the nation equally” and that “no one who serves that cause will dishonour it by cowardice, inhumanity or rapine.”

The DCA Warriors was established in February 2012. We currently have over 8,000 members. The group gives information and support to parents of children with special needs [SN] and/or serious illness [SI] applying for Domiciliary Care Allowance, Carers Allowance, Disability Allowance and Carers Benefit.

We expanded our mission, and are now committed to ensuring all children in Ireland with special needs are given their right to a full education and other rights. Our children deserve to have their dreams realised of a future where they will be a productive member of our society.

Our Election campaign is focussed upon ensuring that the rights of children with special needs and those of their families are fully vindicated.

Our 8,000 plus members are asking election candidates to ensure the following policy commitments are implemented in the next Dáil. In addition individual members will have the facility to include a further two individual policy pledges they are seeking which reflects their own circumstances and concerns.

19. Fight For Justice: Sabahan and Sarawakian hope to get independence and free from federal government clutches

If you are Sabahan or Sarawakian, of course you'll know the history. Since UMNO intervene Sabah's party, things get changed like petroleum, customary land, people's right not respected by federal government.

First and foremost, In 6/6/1946, our first prime minister Donald Stephen known as Tun Fuad was killed in airplane when Tun Fuad and the other ministers was on their way back to Kota Kinabalu. It happens after Tun Fuad did not sign petroleum's contract. They suggested to give loyalty 5% to Sabah while federal government gets 95%.

Second, customary lands, the federal government banish locals for constructions. Think of it, its the only place for the local people bear life. The federal government (Kuala Lumpur) also threatened people who against government. Briefly, they showed no respect to Sabahan people.

Third, people's right. Federal government did not respect Sabah's right. The evidence is they (FG) did not fulfil '20-perkara' as agreement to form Malaysia.

20. Rehome a deserving family

A young working mother with 3 children of school age become homeless and lose all belongings after an accidental fire caused by faulty electrical equipment destroyed there life. She turns to the local authority Swale Borough Council for help in being re-homed as she was in private rental and has nowhere else to turn, unfortunately they refuse to help in re-homing leaving them struggling to live and carry on a normal life.

Below is documented link to the fire
http://www.kentonline.co.uk/…/home-saved-after-neighbours-…/

Yet recently as reported in Kent Online it is reported that "Swale council agree to house up to 10 Syrian refugee families over five years says leader Cllr Andrew Bowles" If these people can be helped when they have no-one else to turn to then surely our own families should be able to expect the same help. Is this really the caring community side of Swale Borough Council they want us to judge them by ?

22. Outlaw Food Waste

Spain and France have already passed regulations regarding food waste. We employ the world to follow suit. Voters, figureheads of governments and corporate lobbyists have signed below from various nations.

With Americans throwing out 165 billion dollars worth of food every year and the same being replicated across the globe, it turns into an issue of human rights. It is morally wrong that people are starving on the street when only 15% of all this wasted food would be enough to feed more than 25 million people every year.

Globally 805 Million people suffered from undernourishment between 2012-2014. There is already an underlying want as such movements have happened throughout history. Here we are trying to represent that want.

24. Justice for Kevan Thakrar!

• Kevan Thakrar was wrongly convicted of murder and attempted murder in 2008 under “joint enterprise”, the legal rule which means that anyone who participates in any way can be convicted of a crime, regardless of whether they committed it. Kevan wasn’t present when the murder took place, but he was sentenced to life with a minimum of 35 years in jail. He was aged 20.

• The description of the assailant given by witnesses was nothing like Kevan and other ID evidence was unreliable. There was no DNA, cell-citing or forensics to put Kevan at the scene of the crime. Kevan’s alibi witness was threatened by police to stop him testifying. Hearsay evidence was also used from people in Cyprus who had never met Kevan, never attended the trial, and who retracted their statements afterwards.

• Two trials were abandoned because of jury bias. In the third, a juror knew one of the investigating police officers who gave key controversial testimony in court.

• In March 2010, Kevan was attacked by prison officers and then charged with assaulting them. He was put in solitary confinement (locked in his cell for 23 hours a day) – conditions condemned by UN Special Rapporteurs on Torture as “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment".

25. Justice for Christian J. Santiago

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-orange-fatal-crash-20150531-story.html

UPDATE - (July 28, 2016)- Anthony Vazquez Jr. is officially a WANTED FELON for Homicide and is dodging an arrest warrant. He has ties to Florida, NY, NJ,CT. and PR, His (enabling) family, are hiding him. Because of this, there has been no arrest. He has killed his cousin, my son, and refuses to do the right thing and turn himself in. We need your help and support in finding him, and making sure that he is tried for his crimes.

Please follow my page- on Instagram (pageofpain_the_x) for photos of this fugitive on the run, and the story. I am still being harassed on Social Media, as his family has made multiple attempts to try and stop me from speaking on behalf of my son, Christian. They have even made attempts here on this very petition.

Let's show them that we will not be deterred, and Justice will prevail!

UPDATE: (June 23, 2016) - It is now a full year and 23 days later after the death of my beloved Christian, who was killed in a fatal, drunk driving crash [not accident], and still no arrest has been made by Florida HWY Patrol. Anthony Vazquez, Jr. (the drunk driver) remains free at this moment. Free to drive, Free to continue to live as if he's done nothing wrong; as if he hasn't broken any laws; as if he hasn't killed anyone or caused severe, permanent, bodily injuries to others with his reckless behavior. Free to be a risk to the rest of society. My family continues to suffer while we grieve the loss of my son and await news of an arrest in regards to this crime. We have been asked to be patient during this very long, ongoing investigation. I think a year of patience, is long enough. We have placed our trust in law enforcement and in the justice system to treat this matter like the crime that it is, and to recognize that a road death should matter just as much as a murder by any other means of a weapon (be it a knife, gun, etc.) My family needs justice for Christian. Justice for Nya. Without justice, there is no healing; there is no moving forward for us.

UPDATE: (March 21, 2016)- My daughter, Nya Santiago underwent her 4th surgery, back in February and is recovering.

THE DRUNK DRIVING CRASH
On May 31st, 2015, at approximately 5:38 AM, my son, Christian, and my daughter Nya Santiago, were involved in a fatal car crash, while my family was vacationing in Orlando, Florida. They were the backseat passengers, and the driver of the vehicle, was impaired. It was a single vehicle crash. Weather conditions were clear. The car was traveling southbound on US 441 (near Orange Blossom Trail), at high speeds, crossing 3 lanes from the outside travel lane to the inside travel lane, striking (as it crossed) the center median; it then struck a traffic sign and the vehicle continued onto the northbound traffic lanes [again] crossing the inner lane, then center lane, and the outside travel lane where finally, the left side of the vehicle struck a tree. The high speed rate at which that drunk driver was traveling and the final impact of the collision with the tree, caused my son, Christian to suffer, severe head trauma.

My 18 year old daughter, Nya Santiago was critically injured, and underwent 3 surgeries to save her life. Nya had surgery on her lower jaw, a broken arm and a shattered pelvic rami (leaving her hospitalized for weeks, and then in wheelchair for weeks thereafter the crash). Though Nya is able to walk (at this time), she is still recovering from her injuries and faces surgery (in the near future) for the damage surrounding her pelvic rami, hips and spine. My 22 year old son Christian Santiago, did not survive the crash. Though my son’s autopsy report shows that he suffered, multiple fractures, abrasions, and damage to organs, the final ruling regarding the cause of his death, is head trauma.

The drunk driver, Anthony Vazquez, Jr. was found conscious and uninjured, and the passenger in the front seat (a male) incurred minor injuries, but was conscious (at the scene with the driver). A third passenger (also a male) in the back seat suffered from a broken leg, but survived and was found conscious at the scene. Five people were in that car the morning of the crash. My son was the only one who did not make it out of the crash alive. My daughter will never be physically the same. The emotional scars this has left on my family are permanent.

WHY THE DELAY?
I had come to find out the news regarding my son’s fate and my daughter’s critical state, at 10:30 AM on May 31st, 2015 (5 hours after the crash). The mother of the boy who incurred the broken leg, called me on my cell phone, from the Bronx, NY, to report news of the crash, but did not tell me that my son had passed away. In fact, she didn't say much to me at all about the crisis, which I had later come to find, that she had knowledge of the crash at least an hour and a half before she finally picked up the phone to call me. Her phone call from the Bronx is a clear indication that this family was notified about the crash, by the surviving boys in the car (who were in Florida). Remember, I was in Florida where the crash actually occurred, and she was in the Bronx, NY. Of course the obvious question is: Why wasn't I notified sooner? She gave me a number to the hospital where my children were brought in for emergency care, and it was there that I received the devastating news about my children.

WHY THE CONFUSION?
The hospital chaplain I spoke with over the phone who was the same person I met with at the hospital, was very adamant when conveying the news that my son was the driver of the vehicle. This false bit of information was stated to me, both over the phone and in person. News reports, and actual conversations with the Florida Highway Patrol confirmed, that my son was not the driver of the vehicle. Still, someone had invented that story and relayed that information to the hospital staff, and I fear that it was to cause a delay in my family receiving immediate and relevant answers to what had actually transpired that morning of the crash.

HOW DO YOU NOT SAY THAT YOU KNOW THE VICTIMS AND THAT YOU ARE RELATED TO THEM, AND WILLINGLY WITHHOLD INFORMATION TO THE AUTHORITIES RE: HOW TO REACH THE VICTIMS FAMILY, WHEN YOU POSSESS THIS KNOWLEDGE?
Though all three boys were just over at Christian and Nya’s family’s vacation home (only a few hours before the crash), and had spent a substantial amount of time at that vacation home conversing with the family (at least 20- 30 minutes while Nya dressed to go out with them), none of the three surviving boys provided information to the authorities, in regards to Christian's identity (not even his name was given), and they never mentioned to the authorities where or how to locate my family. My family was only minutes away from the hospital. Again, all three surviving boys were conscious during and after the crash; two are biologically related to Christian and Nya. All three of the surviving boys knew the location of my family (in Florida), and were present at that location, but chose not to provide that information to the authorities. In fact, my family has come to find that the drunk driver and the boy with the broken leg, chose to disassociate themselves from my children completely, by not telling authorities how they knew Christian and Nya, and withholding information that they are in fact related to them (leaving the authorities to believe that my children didn't really know these boys at all). Florida Hwy Patrol, discovered that the boy with the broken leg is related to my children, 3 months after the crash, during a random conversation with them about the case.

Christian was officially identified through his NYS identification at 9:20 AM at the Medical Examiner's office on May 31, 2015 (nearly 4 hours after the crash). That explains why Florida Hwy Patrol contacted local authorities in the Bronx, NY, to reach out to me regarding the crisis, and why I was not notified sooner, by authorities in Florida, where I was vacationing at the time of the crash. Of course I never actually received the news directly from the authorities in the Bronx, because I was not at home in the Bronx, NYPD knocked on my neighbors doors looking for me, back home. A wasted effort no thanks to the surviving boys, and their family who knew (by this time) my children's condition. Most of Christian's medical documentation shows that he was brought to the hospital for advanced emergency care, as unknown a "JOHN DOE," (he was assigned an alias name and birth date/ birth year).

My daughter who was critically injured awoke briefly after the crash only to catch a glimpse of her brother dying, and then she passed out due to the extremities of her pain as a result to her severe, life threatening injuries. My children were then, rushed to the hospital for emergency care.

TIME MAY HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE
Christian fought for nearly an hour to live, yet I was not notified about the crash up until 5 hours later. My daughter, Nya nearly died, and none of the surviving boys (who were (conscious) thought it was important enough to inform me about my children and their condition. The lack of cooperation from all three boys involved in the crash, caused for delays in getting this vital information to me and my family; sent Florida Highway Patrol (F.H.P) on a wild goose chase to contact authorities in the Bronx, where they then tried to reach me with the news about my children, and all because these boys chose not to provide this information. My son was alive- and I was not there for him, because I did not know he was dying.

I fear that the intent [on the behalf of the 3 surviving boys lack of cooperation] was to cause massive confusion with the authorities, and with my family, and I suspect that they may have been also seeking to place blame elsewhere (provided that I was told by the hospital staff twice upon first receiving news of my son’s passing, that Christian was the driver of the vehicle).

Knowing full well (at the time of the crash), that his cousin(s) may have [both] died, due to his reckless crime, Anthony Vazquez, Jr. did not cooperate with police authorities at all; not even to provide minimal information regarding Christian and Nya Santiago, instead he opted to have a lawyer present, and chose not to identify himself with Christian or Nya, nor did he willingly submit to a blood test, therefore it took police nearly 5 hours to obtain a warrant from a judge so that one could be issued.

Anthony Vazquez Jr., is still not in police custody. Information has come to light, that since there has been no arrest made in regards to this matter (as of yet), his license has not been suspended. Hence, Anthony Vazquez, Jr. is still free to resume operating motor vehicles and he is doing just that, placing the lives of more civilians at risk.

I am asking those who read this petition to take into account that there is a life lost, and that there is irreparable lifelong damage to my family. I am asking those who read this to consider the lack of information, communication, and support that was given to my family, during the most critical moments of Christian's life and death, by all three surviving males, involved in the car crash on May 31st, 2015. I am urging those who read this petition, to please support me in seeking, Justice4Christian.

By signing this petition, you will help the justice system to prosecute to the maximum sentence of all charges. In advance, I would like to thank all those who support my cause for justice. God Bless.

Christian Joshua Santiago
Feb. 12, 1993- May 31, 2015.
A beautiful, family oriented, intelligent young man with his whole life ahead of him. He was a loving older brother, son, and grandson. He had just passed the NYC Sanitation Dept. test and he would have been very excited to work for the city. He was continuing his education while tutoring students at Bronx Community College. Christian had a huge fan following on social media (18k on just one page), and was loved by so many. He had a positive outlook on life, a kind heart, and always put others before himself. Christian was a spirited young man who had so many dreams, and was ambitious enough to go after those dreams. He was a free-lance model and runway model in his spare time, but he was sought after by many photographers and up and coming designers. Christian J. Santiago was a beautiful man with a beautiful soul. May God rest his soul, and may there be justice here on earth.

26. ICC-DROP CHARGES AGAINST WILLIAM RUTO

In 7 January 2008 (IRIN) - Kenya suffered its worst humanitarian crisis since independence following the December 30 results of a hotly-contested presidential election. Opposition leader Raila Odinga and his supporters rejected the declared victory of incumbent Mwai Kibaki, alleging it was the result of rampant rigging. Protests degenerated into widespread violence as decades of economic frustration and ethnic rivalry spiraled out of control. In the days immediately after the results were announced, gangs of youths blocked Kenya’s main roads and set fire to hundreds of homes of perceived ‘outsiders’. In all, more than 1,200 people were killed and some 600,000 displaced into temporary camps, with an equal number seeking refuge with friends or relatives. Agricultural activity was seriously hampered as farmers moved away from their fields, posing long-terms risks for the country’s food security – already threatened by drought and soaring fertiliser prices. The education and health sectors were also compromised by the large-scale displacement of professionals.

After failed attempts to conduct a criminal investigation of the key perpetrators in Kenya, the matter was referred to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. In 2010, the Prosecutor of the ICC Luis Moreno Ocampo announced that he was seeking summonses for six people: Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Industrialisation Minister Henry Kosgey, Education Minister William Ruto, Cabinet Secretary Francis Muthaura, radio executive Joshua Arap Sang and former police commissioner Mohammed Hussein Ali—all accused of crimes against humanity. The six suspects, known colloquially as the "Ocampo six" were indicted by the ICC's Pre-Trial Chamber II on 8 March 2011 and summoned to appear before the Court.

It is not clear why the ICC wanted William Ruto to carry the cross for all the perpetrators who committed crimes against humanity in Kenya.

28. Reduce Sarah Sand's Sentence to a Suspended Sentence

Sarah Sands, a mother like most of us, a mother of five, like myself. No previous convictions. Simply lead her life with,around and for her children.

One day she learned that local authorities had released a convicted, serial child sex offender, Michael Pleasted, into her local community, who not only had a string of 24 child sex convictions in the past but was, at the time of death, awaiting a court appearance for even more child sex offences further not just breaching his previous offender conditions but blatantly flouting them as he did when Sarah paid him a visit.

It is alleged that Sarah Sands approached Paedophile, Mr Pleasted, in order to request that he plead guilty to the current child abuse convictions against him to prevent those already traumatised, innocent children from having to endure the court process and police/barrister scrutiny.

Though allegedly, and somewhat inexcusably armed and intoxicated, it is not beyond the realm of what possible emotional state most any parent could find themselves in considering the information they knew, especially in light of having five children residing within a stones-throw distance of this 'monster' that Ms Sands became enraged beyond usual circumstances of control.

It was at this point where Paedophile Mr Pleasted acted smugly, grinning and taunting Sarah that "All the children were Liars" and he was "innocent", despite convictions proven numerous times previous in a court of law and considerable jail time served.

It was at this time on that evening that Sarah, regrettably, took the law in to her own hands.

In the face of such cold,remorseless disregard for his numerous child victims.. Sarah "Lost it" and decided the fate of this cold and evil man that had,though not killed his victims had indeed taken,ruthlessly both the innocence and future lives of several children.

This callous, twisted 'monster' could no longer harm the children in the community of the East London Estate... Ms Sands had succeeded where local authorities, Police and Justice systems had sadly and inadequately FAILED these local children!

None of us could possibly comprehend looking at such evil, straight in the eyes, mocking us and belittling the life-long damage inflicted to innocent children and not reacting out of parenting instinct, passion and, to be honest, the most basic of human protective, parental instinct.

She stabbed him to death.

It goes without saying that we,as 'normal' law abiding citizens should never take the law into our own hands..That we should allow 'Justice to take it's course'... But what about cases as this where 'Justice' has NEVER been exacted.. adequately at leadt? This man had served previous prison terms, convicted as a full-blown serial paedophile in a Uk court of law yet released into the open community where innocent children exercise their God-given right to play freely within and around their local community.

Maybe, just maybe, if our current court of laws, supposedly there to exact fairness and justice, actually lived up to their pedestal-high titles and exacted what the UK public actually deem as 'justice', the unfortunate, most passionate, caring members of our society would not have to even contemplate that that very justice should lay in our, the public's hands.

Perhaps if this obvious danger to children were not placed in the civil communities of straight, law-abiding citizens,cold and calculated Child molesters and paedophiles would remain in Her Majesty's containments of prison as opposed to being released into communities of people who openly and rightly oppose their very existence... to the point of exacting 'justice' for ourselves!

As the law-abiding community, we fully acknowledge and respect that citizens cannot simply 'go around stabbing people' and 'violence is never the answer'.. However the demise of a convicted,serial paedophile who has systematically destroyed the entire lives of several innocent children and continue to do so despite those British Court of law orders no longer should be warranted the justice of a civil, untimely death.

As a voice for the Children Uk, we demand that Ms Sand's 3 and 1/2 year sentencing be reduced to a 'Suspended sentence' term on the grounds that, statistically, Ms Sands at no time acted in a manner of which at least 90% of UK/Eire parents would not have acted placed in the exact same situation both emotionally & physically.

29. Let Irish chairs speak their mind

It is often said " It is not the man above the chair, but the chair beneath the man." These words were often thrown around in light hearted conversations throughout my youth.

Never did I deem, that one day, not in my lifetime anyway, that chairs might actually have a say in how they want to be treated. It doesn't take much to simply ask a chair if he/she would like you to sit down. Simple. Common. Courtesy. All I want is equality. And that can never be too much to ask for.

30. Violences sexuelles : halte aux excuses, il faut abroger les lois néfastes

En Algérie et en Tunisie, des violeurs évitent toute sanction en épousant leur victime mineure. Au Maroc et au Sahara occidental, ce n'est heureusement plus le cas. Cependant, la loi ne protège toujours pas correctement les personnes ayant subi des violences sexuelles.
