151. Stop Pets Unlimited from selling animals

Whereas Pets Unlimited is a corporation that sells animals as pets and as food; and

Whereas these animals are often visibly left with no water and/or food in cramped and unsanitary conditions; and

Whereas many animals sold by Pets Unlimited are sickly, infected with lice, mites and fleas, or have other illnesses and infections; and

Whereas customers visit a Pets Unlimited store expecting staff to be knowledgeable about animal habits, care, etc., and to provide accurate information about the animals sold by Pets Unlimited; therefore

We, the undersigned, hereby affirm

That Pets Unlimited immediately begin to rectify the living conditions of animals kept at Pets Unlimited stores; and

That Pets Unlimited ensures all animals sold (either as pets or as food) be provided all the proper care, food, water, shelter, etc; and

That Pets Unlimited staff be provided the appropriate training and information regarding care of animals for sale at Pets Unlimited stores; and

That Pets Unlimited takes the appropriate steps to ensure animals sold to customers will be put into safe, caring, compatible environments (e.g. selling similar demeanour fish or dogs); and

That Pets Unlimited sells animals only from reputable, registered breeders or that Pets Unlimited work with shelters and rescue groups to find rescued animals safe, caring homes; and

That if Pets Unlimited cannot provide for the proper, humane living conditions for animals housed in its stores that Pets Unlimited ceases the sale of animals until such a time that Pets Unlimited can provide humane living conditions for animals.

152. Save Better Off Ted

This petition is here to save the show Better Off Ted on ABC (Usually on Tuesdays at some time). They have started to run two new episodes a week and this seems to be a sign that they are just running the last episodes until it is gone.

We are attempting to get them to put new episodes on Wednesdays or at least attempt to promote the show.

153. Save the Tram Depot Workshops, 38-40 Upper Clapton Rd




JAN 31ST 2011


NEWS UPDATE: July 16, 2010

Although the planning sub-committee has approved the application 4:3 it is not the end of the story. Well over 1,200 objections have been sent in by letter, email, written petitions and this petition.
We are continuing to fight this badly flawed decision and still need your support so please do sign the petition if you haven't already done so.


London's only fully intact Horse Drawn Tram Depot site is about to be signed away unless people come out in numbers to support our campaign to save it at the
Hackney Planning Sub-committee's meeting at
TODAY!! Tuesday 29 JUNE.




There is now a discussion about how to make the Tram Depot into an Arts Trust/Centre



Please sign the NEW petition:


The proposal includes the new Trust retaining those businesses that are arts allied, and that the Arts Council may look upon a guaranteed income from renting out other units to small industry (ie. to the other current residents) as a good thing.


We are asking everyone and their friends, to help us fight against a planning proposal that is threatening to destroy a real Hackney gem, shut many active small businesses and result in about 100 workers losing their jobs.




Hackney council will be looking to pass a planning application for the Tram Depot site at 38-40 Upper Clapton Road. Originally the Tram Depot was built for the horse drawn trams, with the tram engineering works housed below the upper storey stabling. Now this historic site, one of the last in Clapton, is home to many thriving small businesses including furniture makers, fabric suppliers, artists, various car services, an ever expanding foam factory and Clapton's only two galleries, the Tram Depot and Vulpes Vulpes. The application proposes the destruction of the site to be replaced by ‘same as everywhere else’ flats with a much reduced area for office and light commercial usage but no guarantee of occupancy. This will destroy the thriving site and ruin the livelihoods of over 100 people and effect the wider area with severe pressure on already stretched local services. Furthermore, the plan's inclusion of the ubiquitous 'local store' to be run by one of the big players will ruin local shopkeepers.

Please help us by opposing this application we have until 14th January 2010 to object to the demolition of the historic Tram Depot, 38-40 Upper Clapton Road!

154. Save Community Radio

Our mission is to stop the payment of royalties to record labels and artists for radio air play. Did you know that radio stations pay over $24,000 a year just in Royalties? Small radio stations can't afford to spend that kind of money.

This kind of unnecessary payment is killing radio in small town america. Sign this petition and help us stop this now before it claims another station!

155. Save St Michael's Hospice Staff & St Augustine Nursing Home

We work for the Hospice and have set up this petition to try and put a halt to the redundancies of approximately 21 Nurses/Health workers from St Michael's Hospice/St Augustine Nursing Home and also the closure of the adjoining nursing home. The redundancies of some staff could happen by 22 Dec 09 and the closure of St Augustine by Feb 2010.

This is a sad day for the patients,staff and even East Sussex,The patients of St Augustine nursing home will have move to new accommodation which is so sad as this is their home. St Augustine has been serving the community since 1886 and was once run by nuns.

156. Hoof Beats Of My Heart

This petition is all about giving horses a home specifically the breeds almost endangered.

There are only 10 animal shelters in Ohio and only 6 of them help horses and 100,000 of them die in America including Ohio.

Shelters will help so that's why we want the mayor and/or the city council to make a shelter specifically for horses.

157. Save Dundee's Tay Hotel

I believe that Dundee Council should be doing their utmost to save one of the few old buildings that is left in the city centre rather than leaving it to go to ruin.

I feel it is so important that all that can be done to preserve this great Dundee landmark should be done but sadly at present it is being left to decay.

158. Save the music in our education system

Pay checks are being cut and the music programs are gonna be the first to go....

159. Don't end Big Brother, keep it going!

Big Brother has been going for a strong 10 years, and most of its viewers enjoying watching it during the summer.

Channel 4 have decided that it may be dropped next year.. that would be shame!

160. Stop Whaling for Good

The Japanese Government is sending its whaling fleet into the protected waters of the Southern Ocean Sanctuary around Antarctica.

And this year, Japan is threatening to add endangered humpback and fin whales to its target list!

161. Save ASHLEY O'BRIEN's Memorial

On the 31 January 2009, Ashley O'Brien (17) was tragically killed whilst walking home along Road One on Winsford Industrial Estate.

A Memorial was subsequently erected, consisting of a bench, paved area, flowers and a photograph and small plaque. This was completed through donations received from friends and local businesses, who recognised that this tragedy must not be forgotten.

The memorial is intended to provide a safe place for all those who wish to publicly remember Ashley.

It was specifically placed in a position that was sympathetic to the surroundings, and was done in full consultation with the council. However council objections have now been raised that may result in much of the memorial being removed.

The purpose of this petition is to gather support, for the council policy to be revised so that his memorial can be saved in its current.

We thank everyone for their support.

4 Dams
16 Weirs
21 Kms Mammoth Tunnel
Over 200 Acres of Concrete Structure….are set to cut the throat of Western Ghats.
Over 18 villages will be submerged; over 800 hectares of forest will be destroyed

Destruction of the Western Ghats will not only cause decimation of biodiversity but also accelerate the impact of global warming.

163. Save the Orangutans

A long time ago people started to use a product which is now in most of our everyday life's this is called palm oil.This product is used in many things such as soaps in the body shop to oil's and being deep fried in chicken from KFC, things like this are tearing up our beautiful rainforests and habitat's in Borneo.

They destroy the forest by burning and bulldozing the trees leaving the orangutans caged up with no place of their own.

164. Help Save Newham Boxing Club

Please help save our boxing club opened in 1981 by ron chapman & bob galloway and continued by son joey chapman, due to the council putting all there money into the Olympic games has made the council set a new lease and demand a rent £10,000 per year TEN TIMES their current payment......

Joey Chapman's statement "We have Olympic hopefuls John Coyle, Liam Desmond, George Moughton & George Veness. How does it look for there future if the council close us down please help save our club?"

165. Save the Spiceburger

Walsh Family Foods closed its doors earlier this month with the loss of 50 jobs and a receiver is to be appointed to the business next week. The company, based in the Poppintree industrial estate in Finglas, could no longer sustain heavy losses caused by the weakness of sterling against the euro and tough competition from UK rivals.

The company patented its recipe for spice burgers, but the product’s popularity never really expanded beyond Ireland. It remained the only producer, so future supplies may depend on the ability of a receiver to find new interests to take over the business.

166. Let's have Unity!!!

Unity Day was born in 1978 on Belmont Plateau and has since become the nation’s largest outdoor radio event. This keystone Philadelphia event celebrates family values, pride, and empowerment. Thirty years and counting. That’s how long WDAS FM’s world famous Unity Day has been going on, making it a part of Philadelphia history now.

WDAS recently announced that "due to the difficult economic times," the station could not produce Unity Day this year. Last week Clear Channel announced that John Rohm, who manages its stations in Pittsburgh, would also be market manager of the Philadelphia cluster, which consists of WDAS, Power 99, Q102, Radio 104.5, Rumba 1480, and My106.1.

167. Save Leigh Gilded Hollins School

This petition is to save our magnificent and beautiful school, Gilded Hollins Junior & Infant School in Leigh, Lancashire.

Gilded Hollins is the highest scoring non-church school in the entire Borough of Wigan. Despite this, Wigan Council want to close it down.

They propose to merge our School with 3 other schools and locate them all on the same site. Gilded Hollins, Lowton J&I, Lowton High and Golborne High will all share a site with a Health Centre and Library, all of which will be open to the school AND the general public.

The implications of moving a mile to the new site and closing down such an excellent school has far too many implications to list here.

168. Stop the Development of Black Ash Creek

74+ acres of wooded land called Black Ash Creek is for sale as a future site for development. It is important to save this beautiful ecosystem and have it designated protected parkland.

169. Save Union Square

The Metro Station Authority threatens to demolish five historic terraces and local businesses on Union Square to make way for the proposed Metro Station. The buildings are heritage listed. They are the heart and soul of the Pyrmont Village.

The past lives and breathes in the present and the future. Buildings and areas should not be pulled down or reconstructed just because it suits the flow of traffic or the use of underground rail systems. Much more needs to be shown to justify the actions of the Authority. Our community has a legitimate and reasonable expectation that the choice of a suitable location will occur with proper consultation and will not be done capriciously or with no concern for relevant matters.

Our Council and the State Government will be judged on how they deal with and value our heritage and its culture. There are other options for the Metro it could be in the Casino complex or on the corner of Union and Pyrmont Streets. If the road was closed between Edward and Pyrmont Streets during construction this important village hub could be left intact.

The best barometer of a society’s character is how it deals with and understands its past and how it uses that knowledge to help it carry on its present tasks, and then to shape its future.

170. Calling for retained firefighters to remain exempt from EU working directive

At present, many local fire services are provided by retained firefighters who already work in full time jobs, and supplement that employment by giving service to the local community.

By making themselves available at the drop of a hat to attend local emergencies, they are often on call outside of normal work hours.

Although the directive requires employers to make sure that employees do not work more than 48 hours a week but, the Conservative Government secured an ‘opt-out’ in 1993.

However, the European Parliament has now voted that there should be no exception to the working time directive for the UK. Furthermore, the majority of the European Parliament wants any period of ‘on-call’ time, including ‘inactive’ time, to count as working time for the purposes of the directive.

Retained firefighters would be breaching this rule as their combined employment and ‘on call’ time will normally exceed 48 hours. – and subsequently they could be forced to give up this valuable service to the community.

171. Save our Michael Scofield!

In 2005 "FOX" started to air the series "Prison Break". For a lot of fans "Michael Scofield" became the hero. Besides the audience liked Michael´s relationship with Sara. They even called it "MiSa" for Michael and Sara. All fans hoped for a happy end.

They made videos with Sara and Michael and opened internet pages to talk about "MiSa". But in the series finale the disaster happened. Michael Scofield died.

Now all "MiSa" and Michael-fans are sad and disappointed. So a lot of fans try to save their beloved Michael:

We also wrote to FOX: and to the producers:;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

175. Save the Seals - Boycott Canadian Seafood

Every year, on the ice floes of Canada, over 350,000 baby harp seal pups are brutally skinned, many while still alive. Some pups haven't even had their first meal. Yet the Canadian Prime Minister condones this.

Please help save these beauties before it is too late!

176. Canberra Raiders Keep Terry Campese

Penrith Panthers are attempting to steal one of our greatest talents of all time, Terry Campese. Terry Campese is a local talent and a fantastic five-eighth and he has been playing the role of both halves.

Terry is an integral part of the Canberra Raiders attack. Canberra Raiders chances of winning a premiership will be close to NIL if the Panthers are allowed to procure Campese.

Terry Campese has the capacity to become a life long Raider!

177. Compulsory Breeders' Licences

With all the Animals that have been abandoned, neglected, abused in the past it is time for people who truly care about them to help put a stop to Puppy mills and irresponsible owners who don’t fix there pets. It's not a small issues anymore, there are a lot of cruel people out there that have these poor animals locked up in feces’ infested little cages for the purpose of breeding these animals for money.

There is no justice for these animals that have to go through this with no medical attention or comfort through the pregnancy, they not only get breed for all the wrong reasons but they are getting breed as much as they can which can not only cause problems with the new puppies arriving but the animals going through the pregnancy is loosing every bit of life each time. These animals need your help, not next week but now.

There is an over abundance of baby animals being given away because the lack of responsible owners who don’t get there pets spayed or neutered. These people need to get stopped to. Please see my Facebook Page for more details

178. Save Lake Toba

Menyadari bahwa Danau Toba merupakan merupakan aset alam, ciptaan Tuhan yang tidak ternilai harganya bagi bangsa Indonesia dan khususnya bagi masyarakat Sumatera Utara. Danau Toba memiliki nilai ekologi, sosial budaya dan ekonomi bagi kehidupan masyarakat terutama di daerah sekitar Danau Toba. Saat ini Danau Toba mengalami berbagai kemerosotan, baik disebabkan olah faktor alamiah maupun akibat aktifitas yang kurang mengindahkan prinsip pelestarian ekosistem, sehingga pada saat ini terjadi degradasi daya dukung perairan maupun daratan di sekitar kawasan Danau Toba. Hal ini dapat kita lihat antara lain : lahan kritis yang sudah semakin luas; Keramba yang sangat mengganggu dan limbah domestik yang sudah tidak terkendali mencemari air Danau Toba, serta pertumbuhan eceng gondok dan gulma lainnya yang merusak estetika danau.

Berbagai masalah tersebut telah terjadi terhadap kelestarian kawasan Danau Toba, yang semakin hari mengalami penurunan kualitas yakni : kondisi fisik, kualitas air. Kondisi fisik mengalami berbagai permasalahan seperti : perambahan hutan yang tidak terkendali, pola pertanian yang tidak ramah lingkungan. Masyarakat secara sembarangan melakukan galian-galian (Galian – C) untuk mendapat keuntungan sesaat, kurang memikirkan dampak yang ditimbulkan.

Kualitas air Danau Toba yang semula jernih dan bening, kini terganggu akibat pembuangan limbah dari berbagai sumber rumah tangga, limbah pertanian, limbah keramba, termasuk pencemaran dari transportasi air kapal di Danau Toba. Dampak pencemaran ini juga telah menimbulkan permasalahan yang lebih besar dengan munculnya gulma eceng gondok sehingga mengakibatkan rusaknya keindahan alam perairan Danau Toba. Munculnya keramba diberbagai tempat secara umum telah mengakibatkan penurunan nilai estetika perairan kawasan Danau Toba dan penurunan kualitas air perairan Danau Toba.

Kondisi yang terjadi saat ini di kawasan Danau Toba khususnya di kawasan perairan Danau Toba, nyata sudah merugikan perekonomian, baik terhadap penerimaan usaha-usaha kepariwisataan maupun perekonomian masyarakat. Sebaliknya apabila kondisi itu dapat dipulihkan maka diharapkan dapat meningkatkan kunjungan wisatawan ke kawasan Danau Toba, yang dampaknya tentu akan berpengaruh terhadap perekonomian setempat.

179. Kiwanis Park NOT FOR SALE!

The City of Kitchener targets Kiwanis Park to be declared "surplus land" and sold for development. Jeff Willmer, Interim Director of Planning was quoted in The Record, March 14, 2009 "The development of the sites would create jobs and generate tax revenue." Willmer goes on to say "These pieces of land really are not needed to meet a need, there is no gap in the supply of park land." Pieces of land?

This 'piece of land' is not for sale! This park, this natural haven is for treasuring, for walking, for swimming, for picknicking, for canoeing, for reading, for skiing, for kite flying, for skating, for jogging, for cycling, for birdwatching, for meditating, for playing. for fishing, for me, for you, for everyone but never, ever for sale.

Kiwanis Park is in desperate need of protection now.

Fortunately, Kiwanis Park has a friend in Councillor John Gazzola. Quoted in the same article he states "I am opposed to selling any park land. It makes no sense. You've got to look down the road 100 years from now. Once that park land is gone you are never going to get it back."

Fortunately, Kiwanis Park has a lot of friends, but the Park can't speak for itself. It needs your voice. We have created this petition as a tool to help us raise a clear and strong voice that tells the City of Kitchener that Kiwanis Park is "NOT FOR SALE!"

Please add strength to our petition and assist us to strategize by adding a comment with your signature. Thank you Friend of Kiwanis Park.

180. In support of John Viverito

John Viverito is a teacher who not only teaches amazing history, but also teaches people how to pay attention to our futures. He is not only a teacher, but a person that has earned his way not through a system, but through the minds of his students.

Any who have had this teacher or met him at any given point can plainly see that this man is something different. His students would all tell you that he has had some sort of positive influence on their lives. Even if your not the best student, by the end of every class you can see this man loves what he does. It would be a shame to see such talent, such devotion go to waste.

Those whom signed this petition can clearly state that Mr. Viverito in some way, has shown positive influence. Don't let a brilliant mind go to waste, this man deserves our help!
