1. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IN IMO

Governance in Imo state since the inception of the Rochas Okorocha led administration has drastically fallen in standard following the style of governance of the Governor which is characterized by executive recklessness, impunity and non observance of due process and rule of law in government conduct, lack of accountability and transparency just to mention but a few. The people are now under intense hardship, hopelessness and poverty while the governor and his family whom he has used to surround his government are living in opulence.

3. President Trump will prevent threats to America, do you disagree ?

President Trump will ban people coming to America, thought to be a possible threat to America.

Many people have spoke against this. As a solution, we ask that you, as an American Citizen open your home to a family of Immigrants that could be hostile to Americans being completely responsible for them until they can prove they are not a risk to America. You will be responsible for helping them become Americans and to follow American laws.

This will give a family a chance of becoming Americans,
who otherwise would not be permitted.

Thank you

4. New Protest Law

Peaceful protest should always be allowed, just as long as they remain peaceful.
When Protests turns violent and threatens the safety of innocent citizens, destruction of personal property and destruction of Government property, they should no longer be considered a peaceful protest but reclassified as a Riot.
When Protest turns into Riots, all those involved should be charged with felonies and be made to pay back any and all cost for any property that was damaged or destroyed.

5. STOP Illegal Protesting! DO YOUR JOB!

CALL TO ACTION:

Call on All Elected Officials to pledge their support for Congress to immediately declare George Soros funded MoveOn.org as an International Terrorist Organization operating within the USA using paid agitators to violently protest against the new President-elect Donald J. Trump.

Without Law & Order chaos will continue hurting people and property dismantling our very society. We ask that you do your job!

Please sign your names to this petition!

6. Change the Super Bowl LI Halftime Entertainment

Professional football has become America's Game. America's Game is regulated, controlled and promoted by the National Football League (NFL). The NFL has hired Lady Gaga to entertain at professional sports' ultimate and most watched event the Superbowl. Superbowl LI will take place on February 5, 2017.

The fans and concerned citizens below request that the entertainment for Superbowl LI be changed by removing Lady Gaga and replacing her with a personality that is more inline with what the NFL represents as America's Game.

Lady Gaga using Nazi inspired presentations, being active in riotous protests that have culminated in violence & multi-millions of dollars in property destruction and now vocal in an active push to overthrow the recent presidential election does not represent what America's Game means to its fans and supporters. The actions by Lady Gaga and her anti-America actions would not be tolerated by the NFL in its players so those signed below ask the NFL to hold their entertainment selections to the same high standards that they hold the players to which has elevated professional football to the position with the huge fan base it now enjoys by taking actions to replace Lady Gaga. Keeping Lady Gaga risks that Superbowl LI will be used for and turned into a propaganda opportunity.

Professional football has seen a decline in ratings and this action will go a long way in stopping and reversing this decline.

7. Bring Congress back from Recess

Under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, we ask the President to call a Special Session of Congress.

This Special Session should address these 3 items:

1.) Human Rights
Action: a. Outlining the rights of Civilians (when apprehended or detained in Police custody, the process of public defense, easier process to restore voting rights to returning citizens) and -
b. the rights of police (proper/unified training, psychological evaluations, fair wages/ treatment for PTSD)

2.) Race Relations
Action: a. Updating the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include anti-profiling language & increased funding to Community Relations Service (CRS)

3.) Gun Control

8. No to the resignation of Mayor Tim Kee

The mayor simply was cautioning women for their safety and the media is defaming an innocent man.

He was not happy about the death of the victim, neither did he say she caused her own death.

The media has done it again with their derogatory headlines.

9. SAY NO to The Master Plan

Government of Ethiopia is about to implement or is implementing the so called ‘Integrated Master Plan’ which is said to have been prepared by the joint task force of Addis Ababa and Oromia.

Oromo resisted to the plan for many reasons among these; is the fear of repercussions of the identity, culture and livelihood of the Oromo. Violence erupted across Oromia regional state which involved students from the University to Primary schools.

According to the FDRE’c constitution of Article 43.2 Oromo people have constitutional rights to decide on the urban development programs through democratic, transparent, bottom-up and inclusive approaches of participation. We have the right to decide whether we opt to go for the ‘Integrated Master Plan’ or not. Our constitutional right is violated. We should be consulted and we have the right to say no.

The ‘Integrated Master Plan’ is anticipated to hinder our identity, culture and livelihood. AS a result of this we say no to the Master Plan.

10. Protest przeciw wypowiedziom senatorów PIS o in-vitro

W imieniu swoim, stowarzyszenia TED oraz osób popierających treść tej petycji przesyłam do wiadomości Pana Bogdana Borusewicza, Marszałka Senatu RP, oficjalny protest przeciwko wypowiedziom polityków PIS na posiedzeniu nr 78 w dniu 08.07.2015 w związku z punktem 1. porządku obrad: ustawy o leczeniu niepłodności.

W swoich wypowiedziach senatorowie: Pani Dorota Czudowska, Pan Grzegorz Czelej, Pan Jerzy Chrościkowski, Pan Stanisław Kogut oraz Pan Czesław Ryszka odwoływali się głównie do religii, co budzi nasz sprzeciw, ponieważ dyskutowana ustawa będzie obejmowała wszystkich obywateli Polski bez względu na wyznanie. Ponadto oburzające jest, że wypowiedzi senatorów sugerują odbiorcom, że ich autorzy nie mają dostatecznej wiedzy na temat metody in vitro, by zabierać w tej sprawie głos. Metoda XXI wieku pozwalająca cieszyć się z macierzyństwa osobom cierpiącym z powodu bezpłodności ma być dyskutowana przez niekompetentne osoby przywołujące argumenty sprzed kilkudziesięciu, kilkuset a nawet kilku tysięcy lat, religijne, kościelne.

11. PROTEST OF KLIA DRONE FLIER

We, Malaysian UAV Drones Activist Society or MUDAS are concerned over the incident of photographing aircrafts by unauthorised flying vehicles or unmanned aerial vehicles in the vicinity of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) by a guy called yengnasir that had been uploaded on social media sites and went viral, recently.

We fear that it could lead to another aviation disaster.

12. Durham Against Militarized Police Brutality

Police in Durham NC engaged in brutality and repression on Friday December 5. We need to see change. They need to know we are not going to take this anymore. We want Chief Lopez to do his job. We want to be able to peacefully assemble.

13. Stop Ebola Now - Wake Up Australia

WAKE UP AUSTRALIA:

The worlds' most volatile disease is a global emergency and is not confined to African nations. This is no joke.

•The Spanish Flu killed 100 million people and had a fatality rate of 2.5%
•This nasty virus kills 25-90% infected and killed 52 humans in 2 days
•Ebola has a 2-21 day incubation period so people are like bombs; unaware they're contagious until it's too late so checking people's temperature at airports is useless
•Every Ebola patient passes the virus onto 2.5 others
•Many affected countries have run out of living doctors to fight the outbreak
•Hospitals and pharmacies closed on Tuesday 12th August as Sierra Leoneans panic
•PEOPLE ARE STARVING AND NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR 21 DAYS!
•If this epidemic remains "OUT OF CONTROL" in 2-3 months time 50,000 people will have the worlds' most gruesome virus and in 6 months,

1 MILLION VICTIMS WILL HAVE EBOLA IF WE FAIL TO ACT NOW.

We need to get our government to help those who can't help themselves.
This is an emergency. Liberia and Sierra Leone are some of the world's poorest countries due to war, normally without a crisis people fight for survival. Now their governments have stopped people from leaving their homes for 3-4 weeks WITHOUT GIVING THEM FOOD!! WHERE ARE YOU, MR. ABBOTT? We pay our taxes and are Australian citizens and you're allowing our family to suffer like this during an International Emergency. Keep in mind that there's hundreds of thousands of Africans here.

Sierra Leoneans from Sydney told me this catastrophy is worse than the 10 year "Blood Diamond" war because they said "You could tell where the rebels were and avoided them. With Ebola, a family member or local GP could kill them." That's if they have any relatives left after the brutal war or can afford a GP at all due to the aftermath. Many West African Australians have lost several family members due to Ebola and are worried about their families back home, suffering from stress, fear and high blood pressure. Now family members are going hungry adding to the pressure.

WE MUST STAND UP AND TAKE ACTION and be the voice for those in West Africa.
Our government is silent, sitting idle while Australian citizens' family members are dying. Let's be honest, if their relatives were English, our government would support them fully. I am disappointed in our government for displaying racism in this manner. Instead, we're searching for dead body parts of Australians from plane crashes and diverting attention away from the fact that this plague like virus is killing innocent people and it's an insult to remain silent. How dare we make other Australians feel like second class citizens- shame on us! How dare we discriminate. Inaction speaks louder than words. These people have gone through unfathomable situations and what, because they have African roots we brush our hands? Ebola is in Australia- scientists are studying it here but where are we helping the innocent people isolated in West Africa in the midst of this!!!!

We seem to be very focused on ourselves. The Chinese government gave medical supplies, the US and UK did too. WAKE UP AUSTRALIA!! Please send emergency food drops to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. These are INNOCENT PEOPLE and IF OUR AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT DOES NOTHING, BLOOD IS OR THEIR HANDS!

With your signature, we will save the lives of MANY WITHOUT A VOICE.

14. End workplace bullying

Workplace bullying is dangerous, more needs to be done to prevent it.

The psychological effects of workplace bullying can be devastating.

Are there certain disciplines in employment contracts that constitute bullying? If so, what are the offending disciplines and why or why not should companies implement new anti-bullying policies?

15. NIE dla pomnika Lecha Kaczyńskiego w Łodzi

Tło petycji jest jasne. Radni łodzcy podjęli kontrowersyjną decyzję o powstaniu w Łodzi na pl. Komuny Paryskiej pomnika byłego prezydenta RP Lecha Kaczyńskiego oraz o nazwaniu pobliskiego skweru przylegającego do ul. Tuwima jego imieniem. Nie wyrażamy na to zgody, ponieważ Lech Kaczyńskim w najmniejszym stopniu nie zasłużył się dla naszego miasta.

16. Ban The Sales Of Legal Highs in NZ

Legal Highs being sold in NZ are leading to many different health issues from mild sickness to death.

We do not know for sure what chemicals are in many of these.

They are doing much harm to our people young & old.

17. Save Wyndham Street Diner

The Diner is an essential service providing subsidised, hot, nutritious meals to the local elderly, vulnerable residents and wider community in a warm, friendly and social environment. It has been poorly managed and is suffering from the round of council cuts with no safety net in the way of business support in place.

Decisions are made behind the public's back by a committee that will not engage with the community it supposedly works for. Decisions are being made to alter the service beyond recognition.

We need to let them no we, the community, are not prepared to accept this without public consultation, open discussion and knowing every avenue has been tried.

18. Save Disneys Toontown Online

Toons have been playing since 2003, and leaving the game for dead is just not right. We've waited so long for new features, you add them, and a few weeks later, we're closing?

We NEVER got to see what was in Chip 'n Dale Acres, at all, and that's just pathetic.

Toons want Toontown, and we'd even pay extra for it too.

Disney, you can manage two games at once. Just stop, and think of the hate you'd get. Not that it really matters to you.

19. Fortis 2 tier protest

Fortis BC recently changed its rates to a 2 tier system, whereby those who consume over 1600 kWh of energy per two month period are charged a higher rate. This has had a major financial impact on many rural customers who do not have access to gas service to mitigate their electricity usage, and therefore forces them to pay the higher rate for their energy needs.

It also punishes the elderly and low-income residents who cannot afford the new rates or the costs of energy-saving upgrades, as well as renters whose units only provide electricity.

20. No Confidence in Harper

The Harper government has proven time and time again, by act and word, that they do NOT have the best interests at heart for Canada, her people, her economy, and her environment.

Please sign this petition if you disagree with Harper's habit of passing laws in secret, the blatant disregard he has for the Canadian people and country, or if you're just had enough of Harper's despotism.

Here is a very small collection of some crimes performed by the Harper government to the Canadian people:

* The Harper government has used voter suppression techniques and overspending to control the elections from 2005-2012. The latest being the Robocall scandal, which is currently under investigation.

* The Harper government passed crime Bill C-10 at night, despite strongly voiced opposition from the People. This bill will unjustly send many people to prison, at an conservative estimated cost Canadians $108,000 / prisoner per year. Avenues of crime and poverty reduction, diverting young offenders from adult prison systems, and offering more services to the mentally ill, while proving very effective, have been neglected or cut.

* The Harper government requested the Governor General to dissolve/prorogue the Parliament to AVOID THREE separate votes of No Confidence by the minority parties.

* The Harper government has cut funding to a number of charities and organizations over the years simply based on ideological or policy reasons, including: Rights and Democracy; International aid group Kairos; research and advocacy work funded by the women's program at Status of Women Canada; and the NRTEE (National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy). CBC and Radio One, the only national not-for-profit news organization is under going massive cuts over the next 3 years for disagreeing with the Harper Government's policies.

*If passed, online spying bill C-30 will have the Canadian people paying for a range of authorities to invasively access your private online information, at any time, without a warrant, which is a breach of UN's Declaration of Human Rights - Article 12

*Broke UN's Declaration of Human Rights - Article 9 - No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile. - During the G20 and the Quebec student protests

*Ignoring and mistreating of the First Nations reserves including education and housing cuts, and lack of clean drinking water available to over 50% of the reserves.

*Unwanted privatization of areas of international ecological significance, such as Brewsters Jasper National Park walkway, and the prime grizzly bear habitat of the proposed Jumbo Glacier Ski development.

*Broken UN's Declaration of Human rights - Article 27 - Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author - by stifling information and scientists on Climate change.

22. Support N65 per litre

President Goodluck Jonathan has just fixed the price of petrol at N97 per litre while occupying major cities in Nigeria with Soldiers and the Police to deny Nigerians their right of association to engage in peaceful protests against the hike in Petrol prices.

This petition is with the view of gathering 20 million signatories to tell government to revert back to the status quo ante of N65 per litre as this represents the position of Nigerians.

23. Pressure Discovery Medical Aid to change limits on Allied Medical

Discovery Health Medical Aid has drastically changed their coverage for all allied health professionals for 2012.

It is unreasonable to go from unlimited benefits to a low maximum.

We are asking Discovery Health Scheme to appoint an independent commission of enquiry to investigate alternative ways of curbing abuse of benefits, without capping the limits.

Please join us and show your support- we need as many signatures as possible to show Discovery MA that we have major support.

24. Save Lego Universe!

Lego universe has provided entertainment to many children (and adults) across the globe since October 2010 and is currently in a state of turmoil.

It is a diverse game with many quests and imaginative features to implement throughout, including combat, and in-depth story and property building. many fans are in distress over this so called closing but i will not stand for it.

I (and i'm sure many fans across the world too) are upset about this. If we want to keep this game, we as fans must unite, to save the universe!

25. AFRICOM off African soil

AFRICOM is a military entity that is encircling Africa. It is the cutting edge of the imperialist war machine that brings drones and other military hardware that kills african and destabilises the region.

AFRICOM threatens the peace and stability in Africa and drives a colonial agenda that is destructive and exploitative. Africa, in order to develop itself in peace, needs all war machines off its soil so as it has a sovereign integrity and political independence.

There will never be peace in Africa as long as AFRICOM is on its soil.

26. Impeach Bob Blackman, MP

Directors of a company told lies to their workers about the financial state of the organization and abused an invoice factoring service by submitting large numbers of invoices for goods that were never manufactured.

They then took advantage of loopholes in Employment law to withhold wages and cheat employees out of money owed, leaving them poorer, stressed, suffering sleepless nights, and ultimately unemployed.

Harrow East MP, Bob Blackman was asked to take action in this case; but instead procrastinated and failed to have the aforementioned Directors struck off, failed to pass legislation to close the legal loopholes, ignored calls for an inquiry into this scandal, and instead claimed that this issue is "not in the public interest". He now refuses to answer further correspondence about this scandal.

Therefore, we say that this matter is in the public interest, that Bob Blackman has failed to represent the concerns of his constituents, and therefore should resign or be impeached from Public office. More details here.

27. PLEDGE TO BOYCOTT FAMILY DOLLAR

WHEREAS
The Family Dollar retail chain, with annual revenues in excess of seven billion dollars, has announced it will open one of its "big box" stores in the small town of Ridgway, CO.
 
WHEREAS
Ridgway supports locally owned and operated businesses, and the citizens promote smart, sustainable development which primarily benefits the local economy rather than an elite few in a large national corporation.

WHEREAS
The Family Dollar corporation will most likely take business away from smaller local businesses, put some of them out of business, and ultimately destroy more jobs locally than it creates.

WHEREAS
Ridgway has been able to preserve its unique and distinctive "Old West" small town character up until now and wants to keep it that way.

WHEREAS
Despite the fact that the citizens have staged numerous protest rallies, and more than 700 people have signed a petition asking Family Dollar NOT to open a store in their town, the corporation has ignored the town's pleas. 

WHEREAS
Legally, Ridgway cannot prevent Family Dollar from moving in or deny them a building permit, which they have now obtained, and the citizens' sincere and open appeal to the corporation - letting it know it is not welcome in their town - has gone unheeded.

28. Support Charlie Gilmour

Charlie Gilmour has been given a 16 month jail sentence for his actions during student protests, despite not having actually hurt anyone. The sentence seems unnecessarily harsh and is likely to cause further serious psychological hurt to a young man already struggling with difficult personal issues.

Charlie Gilmour has apologised for his actions but appears to be a scapegoat for those members of the establishment who feel outraged by his disrespect for national icons such as the Prince of Wales and the Cenotaph.

A much lighter sentence would seem to be more appropriate in this case.

29. NO to Bahrain Grand Prix - Appeal to Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA)

We, the undersigned appeal to your organisation NOT to grant permission to hold the event in Bahrain given the current situation in the country.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is currently under martial law after the government's lethal crackdown on peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations in March 2011.

Some 30+ unarmed civilians have been killed by security forces (some at point-blank range or as the result of torture). Alleged supporters of the protests have been beaten up by masked government security personnel, arrested at roadblocks and taken from their homes mainly in the 70% majority Shia villages. Some have died in custody.

100's of civilians have gone missing including men, women, children, medical personnel, human rights supporters and pro-democracy politicians.

Secret military trials of civilians have begun with no right of access to independent legal counsel. Four individuals have now been sentenced to death.

There is now no free media in the country and electronic communication is routinely monitored, blocked and throttled.

In a sectarian witch-hunt by the government, 1,000+ individuals have been sacked from their jobs for allegedly participating in the demonstrations. Students have been expelled from schools and universities and some studying overseas have had financial grants withdrawn and threats made against them for supporting the peaceful democracy movement.

By allowing the Bahrain authorities to go ahead with the Bahrain Grand Prix, the FIA would communicate to the international community that the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, Formula One Management, its sponsors and participants condone the human rights abuses being committed by the Al-Khalifa government on its own people.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is currently under martial law after the government's lethal crackdown on peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations in March 2011.

Some 25+ unarmed civilians have been killed by security forces (some at point-blank range). Alleged supporters of the demonstrations have been beaten up by masked government security personnel and arrested at roadblocks and in their homes.

Some 800+ individuals have gone missing including men, women, children and medical personnel. The whereabouts of most remain unknown. Many continue to be tortured while under arrest.
