Petition to stop the proposed development of the retirement village and road and save our birds and bushland.
Due to the wide, rare, and diverse variety of bird and other native animal life that depend on the pond and surrounding bushland for food and shelter in the proposed area of development for the retirement village and road in Marmong Point, development application number : DA/2233/2010, also due to the impact on the environment of this fragile eco-system and the reduction of the nature corridor and habitat by the removal of trees, we are strongly opposed to this development.
Edith Cowan University management have no plans to maintain the majority of bushland areas on the university grounds. It is likely that these areas will be flattened for future development.
Why is this important?
- ECU campuses are known for their iconic Australian bushland surroundings.
- There are currently no intentions to preserve extensive areas of existing bushland at ECU Joondalup campus.
- Urbanisation is a major contributing factor toward climate change, clearing native bushland areas will promote an environmentally irresponsible image for ECU in this respect.
- The bushland areas support a range of native wildlife.
- The surrounding bushland at ECU provide a positive and relaxing learning environment for students.
- These areas are valued by the community outside of ECU.
Ensure the continued existence of bushland areas at all Edith Cowan University campuses by signing the online petition for protected Edith Cowan University bushland areas.
3. Save A Tree
The issue is that we are losing trees at a very fast pace. Without trees we can expect more runoffs of topsoil, the temperature of the earth to change, extinction of animals that rely on tree’s to live, and irregularities in the balance of carbon dioxide and oxygen.
Some might think that this won't affect us, but it can/will create a reaction on the earth that will affect other resources in the area. By saving the trees we are creating a better future for ourselves and our future children.
CRISTINELLA has been "banned" from attending The Church of Rock at Charlie Murdoch's Dueling Piano Bar on 3 occasions. The reasons for being "banned" have not fully been explained, and are irrational, considering that CRISTINELLA has positively promoted CHARLIE MURDOCH'S DUELING PIANO BAR for the past year.
JOEY GRANATI once revealed to CRISTINELLA that he planned on using the younger generation to generate publicity for himself as an entertainer. CRISTINELLA admires and reveres JOEY GRANATI, yet is cruelly punished for being CRISTINELLA.
As a professional entertainer, it is CRISTINELLA's right to seek solace in the live music. "BANNING" must stop. Music heals. Allow CRISTINELLA to heal through music at her favorite live music venue in Pittsburgh, PA.
Petition to the Bush Administration, Congress, and Incoming U.S. President
Nearly two decades ago, under President Bush's father, the U.S. began the Andean Trade Preference Act (ATPDEA). That program offers Bolivia and a handful of other Latin American nations reduced U.S. tariffs, allowing them to develop new industries and jobs exporting products such as textiles, jewelry, and hand-carved furniture.
In September, as part of the Bush administration's feud with Bolivian President Evo Morales, President Bush announced that he will use his executive authority to axe Bolivia out of those trade preferences.
The actual victims of President Bush’s move, however, won't be President Morales, but women and men who eke out modest livings as weavers, jewelry-makers and carpenters, creating products for U.S. markets. The U.S. Congress knows that, and just two weeks ago approved a six-month extension for Bolivia. But as recently as October 16 in Washington, President Bush repeated his intent to sidestep Congress and use his powers to cut Bolivian workers out of the program.
The Democracy Center, based in Cochabamba, Bolivia, has begun this petition to give people an opportunity to speak out against President Bush's plan. On October 31 we will present the petition, including the names of all who sign it, as part of our formal comments to the Bush administration, as allowed under U.S. law.
The Democracy Center has also produced a five-minute video featuring the testimonies of three Bolivian workers who will be directly impacted by Bush's action. That video can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiJp5k5g4qs
*By signing this pledge, your email will not be shared with anyone.
**If your organization wants to join the petition please send us an email telling us so at: email@example.com.
President Bush has done very little to help this counrty. He is doing nothing about the climbing gas prices, the mortgage crisis, or the real issues.
I for one think Bush should be fired for his sloppy work.
Herein a short list of historic facts in support of a distinct official name, other than that of the region of Macedonia of Northern Greece, that will replace the UN official term F.Y.R.O.M. / the former Yugoslav republic with capital the city of Skopje.
· FYROM is a state with a fabricated conscious / identity crafted during the Cold War Era by Joseph Marshal Tito to prevent the unification of the region known as FYROM with Bulgaria (same ethno- linguistic makeup) - at the same time annex Historic Macedonia of Northern Greece.
·The citizens of FYROM, for the most part, are ethnic Slavs (last names end in –ski ) and ethnic Albanians.
· According to the official state census during the Ottoman Era, the primary ethnic groups in the geographic region of Macedonia were: Greek, Bulgarian, and Turkish. History does not record the existence of an identifiable Macedonian ethnic group.
· The region of Macedonia in Northern Greece is over 90% of Historic Macedonia, which is in fact the region that all the major archeological findings have been found. Thus, the region of FYROM is a fringe geographic region to the core Macedonian mainland.
· The region of FYROM covers what was at the time of antiquity part of Paeonia and part of Dardania and was located north of Macedonia.
8. Save Darfur
In 2004 the U.S. Government called the atrocities in Darfur genocide...
...3 years later the killing continues.
-More than 450,000 innocent civilians are Dead
-2.5-3 Million are Displaced
-3.5 million depend on food aid
Women are being raped,
and Villages are being bombarded.
It is part of our responsibility as human beings to help these people and end the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, & eastern Chad.
The Earth is already locked in to a 1.8 degrees global rise in temperature above pre-industrial times. Above a two degree rise, we are guaranteed far more calamitous weather events already evidenced by fires, flooding, wind, melting, Tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes.
These events are resulting in widespread damage and the death of many people as well as entire species.
Please sign to request that United States leaders take immediate and sustained action on this drastic climate emergency!
The War in Iraq has been going strong for 5 years now, As of September 2007 over 27,506 Military Men and Women have been Injured in Iraq and Over 3728 have Died on the Battlefield...and Counting.
There are thousands of National Guardsmen and Women in Iraq who are trained to deal with fires much like the ones in California.
We need too get out of Iraq and deal with more important issues:
-The Darfur Conflict
Nobody else should die in that desert.
George Bush lied to the people of the United States when he said Iraq had WMD's.
He lied when he claimed Saddam Hussain had a part with Osam Bin Laden. Our troops are being murdered in Iraq by militant Muslims who will never stop their attacks on our Military heroes.
It is time to protect our Service Members from the fascist fanaticism of George W. Bush.

13. Pass That Law!
Bush has vowed he will veto the law that makes horse slaughter illegal, we need to stop this!
As a man who willingly endorsed policies that lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi children and against the wishes of the bishop of Rome, waged an unholy, unjust and illegal war on a sovereign state, it would be completely unacceptable for him to be enrolled as a full member of the catholic church.
This is compounded by his public refusal to accept the error of his actions and his share of the responsibility for the carnage and slaughter, as a nation is torn apart.
Global warming is a problem that concerns everyone, but some governments (like USA, the most contaminating one) seem to do nothing about it. Their time is over. It's time for us, people of the world to declare what we want our governments to do for us, for this planet, for you and me.
El calentamiento global es un problema que nos atañe a todos, pero algunos gobiernos (como el de EEUU,el mas contaminante de todos) parecen ignorar este asunto, como si no tuviese nada que ver con ellos. Es hora de que nosotros, ciudadanos del mundo manifestemos lo que deseamos que nuestros gobiernos hagan por nosotros, por este planeta.
The Darfur conflict is an ongoing armed conflict in the Darfur region of western Sudan, mainly between the Janjaweed, a militia group recruited from the tribes of the Abbala Rizeigat (Bedouin Arabs), and the non-Baggara people (mostly land-tilling tribes) of the region.
The Sudanese government, while publicly denying that it supports the Janjaweed, has provided money and assistance and has participated in joint attacks with the group, systematically targeting the Fur, Zaghawa, and Massaleit ethnic groups in Darfur. The conflict began in July 2003. Unlike in the Second Sudanese Civil War, which was fought between the primarily Muslim north and Christian and Animist south, in Darfur most of the residents are Muslim, as are the Janjaweed.
After fighting worsened in July and August 2006, on August 31, 2006, the United Nations Security Council approved Resolution 1706 which called for a new 17,300-troop UN peacekeeping force to supplant or supplement a poorly funded, ill-equipped 7,000-troop African Union Mission in Sudan peacekeeping force. Sudan strongly objected to the resolution and said that it would see the UN forces in the region as foreign invaders. The next day, the Sudanese military launched a major offensive in the region. (See New proposed UN peacekeeping force)
Estimated number of deaths in the conflict vary widely. According to Sudan's government, 9,000 people have been killed; most NGOs use 200,000 to over 400,000, a figure from the Coalition for International Justice that has since been cited by the United Nations. As many as 2.5 million are thought to have been displaced as of October 2006. (See Counting deaths section, below) The mass media once described the conflict as both "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide," and now do so without hesitation. The some in the United States government has described it as genocide, although the United Nations has declined to do so.
In March 2007 the U.N. mission accused Sudan's government of orchestrating and taking part in "gross violations" in Darfur and called for urgent international action to protect civilians there. Not much action has taken place.
On the night of January 10, 2007 the President of the United States addressed to the Nation his new plan to send over 20,000 more troops to Iraq.
An AP-Ipsos poll was taken after the President's address to the Nation and it was shown that 71% opposed sending over more troops to Iraq.
We need to let our voices be heard. Signing this petition will help further the notion that the people are not in agreement to what is being done.
Just to know your opinion about the real reasons of the Iraqi war ...
Myself and many of my peers, family, and people I dont know are upset that cubans can't go to Cuba unless we have immediate family now living in Cuba.
So if we want to see a grandmother, aunt, uncle, neice, or anyone like that we can't because of this restriction.
This is also not fair to americans who want to enjoy the beautiful country of Cuba.
Today, conjugal visitation programs, also known as the Extended Family Visit, only survive in six states: California, Connecticut, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York and Washington.
Make them available in every state.

There are over seven million americans who are involved in cults, or cult-like groups.
There is hardley any money used to help cult victims, or research cult tactics, which would prevent people from joining a cult. If this petition goes through, money will be used to research cults, and educate the public about them, so that they are more informed.
The goal is to help cult victims, and prevent people from becoming one.

Criminal misdeeds of George W Bush and his impeachment.
ABSTRACT OF A WHITE PAPER ON IMPEACHMENT OF GEORGE W BUSH
1. This guy has shut down internet, made all sites paysites or useless search engines.
2. Given people search to Pay Sites like the phony US SEARCH, INTELLIUS[many had to complain to the FBI as US SEARCH took the money but after they refused to refund when they gave no result---INTELLIUS USES TRACKING COOKIES LIKE UUSEARCH Which is managed by a Bail jumper in India from Banglore called NATHAN;
3. Zaba search stripped info on the grounds of PRIVACY which terrorists and thieves use. No one in the world likes this detestable regime which is worst than the STALINIST AND NAZI regimes. The sooner these scumbags get out every nation,the better the world will feel.
4. When this guy was running for second term he rumored the Bin Laden convoy was about to be nabbed and was on it's way to India from Pakistan and that USAMA would be nabbed and he stole elections by calling in "EXPERTS FROM INDIA".
5. After he stole the elections, there's no talk about bin laden when he knows where USAMA IS but BUSH AND TONY BLAIR KNOW.
6. The guy in this banned press cutting was nabbed by Scotland Yard with the aid of FBI but the matter has been hushed up destroying all the hard work of the FBI.
7. He shut down wonderful free sites like www.abuzz.com
8. It's obvious as to who organized 9/11 .In early 2001 his ratings were extremely low and after 9/11 he became a hero.
9. Now again his ratings are low so he's come up with the phony theory Russians spying in Iraq. If Putin does start spying USA would Vanish into thin Air.
10. He called a CIA couple murdered Brutally in Afghanistan since they had collected evidence about his [Bush] involvement in 9/11 and this guy collected affidavits through move on Organizations world wide to get support.
11. When these ratings go down further then there would be another 9/11 if not in US, then in France, Australia, Spain, UK etc. and he's already opening up the wounds of victims of 9/11. The writings on the wall are clear.
12. When Bush ratings go down, 9/11 surfaces. This time there is going to be another 9/11. After all USAMA WAS A CREATED BY HIS DAD.
13. He made love with the Greatest Rogue Nation in world viz India and hyped up the phony INDO-US NUCLEAR DEAL as a cover up for getting the Gas pipeline from Iran.
14. He has two Call Centers of Money Laundering in Delhi and on his Visit to India and made LAURA BUSH a member of a phony Charitable organization organization run by an India Cop involved in the sensational murder of a Model.
15. Now he's calling TOP IT PROFESSIONALS from India who are in effect Terrorists like his EVANGLICAL GAMEPLAN given in the URL BELOW:
ABSTRACT OF TEHELKA REPORT:
This could be the plot of a fevered thriller. A jingoistic president, multi-million dollar corporations, high technology, a grand if furtive mission, networks spanning the globe, and biblical invocations. Only it's real. And its got India in its crosshair.
Religious expansionism has not witnessed this scale, scope, and state resources in a long time. Detailed investigations by Tehelka reveal that American evangelical agencies have established in India an enormous, well-coordinated and strategised religious conversion plan.
The operation was launched in the early 1990s but really came into its own after George W Bush, an avowed born-again Christian, became president of the United States in 2001.
This could be the plot of a fevered thriller. A jingoistic president, multi-million dollar corporations, high technology, a grand if furtive mission, networks spanning the globe, and biblical invocations.
=> India has become a key target of pro-active evangelism; North India is the main target.
=> US-based evangelical bodies use their vast resources and manpower convert people and churches in India.
=> American intelligence has more exhaustive ethnographic maps of India than the Indian government itself.
=> Evangelist organisations dupe government agencies to enter India and conduct operations
=> Evangelists working closely with American intelligence. Each corner of India has been mapped; socio-economic groups have been identified for targeting.
Read full story
Long Queues of Terrorists outside the office in Delhi get a Green Card after they get converted to Evangelists. This will result in a large scale religious and/or ethnic violence all over the world which will divert people's attention from his misdeeds and his 200 odd Billion Dollars in Latvia Malta, Cayman Islands [only a perverted creativity of Bush can think of such countries].
If it were Indian Intelligence/ Investigating agencies they would have looted the dirty money. He chose Latvia as Tony Blair has connections their and got a man called Peter Bleach released when he dropped sophisticated arms around Uranium Mines on December 17, 1995. Peter Bleach is an official of MI6.
13. HE's been hellbent on destroying the International Criminal Court in conspiracy with India. The man's a pain in the neck. The correct world is A---HOLE!
16. On Iraq the guy says "Forget the Past Bloodshed". Sure when Indians ruled by the Most Dangerous Italian Mafia Woman Antonia Maino alias Sonia Gandhi Starts sucking he blood.
WE WILL THEN TELL HIM "LETS FORGIVE THE PAST AND IF YOUR BLOOD HAS BEEN SUCKED DRY ,SO WHAT? YOUR BLOOD IS MORE VENOMOUS THAN THAT OF A KING COBRA!"
READ ALL ABOUT HER AND BE SHOCKED. PLEASE CIRCULATE TO EVERYONE , ALL OVER THE WORLD.
IF CLINTON CAN BE IMPEACHED FOR LAYING MONICA LEWINSKY,WHY CAN'T BUSH BE IMPEACHED FOR ENDAGERING THE WORLD FOR ALLOWING INDIA TO NUKE THE PLANET WITH BULLET SIZED NUCLEAR WEAPONS? [SOME INFORMATION IS IN FAS.ORG]
PLEASE PASS IT ON
Same sex marriages should be allowed. What gives the government the rite to tell people to how they can and can not married? Our country is being run in a Christian life style.
Just because a percent of the country thinks it is "not proper" it does not give them the rite to make others suffer, for there differences. America is county of the free this is a country were it is not your race that determines you life but how hard you work and how bad you want it.
Well I want it to be an equal country as well, and let me tell you if you have not realized it is not. I am not saying people can not disagree with me but if you believe that it is wrong for a man and a man to love each other, that's your opinion. If I said it was wrong for you to love your wife or your husband, how would that make you feel? Not very good I presume.
Think about it you were taught from the day you were born that it should be a man and a woman. Well times change.
26. Fuel Cost Relief
This petition was written and created on September 3rd, 2005, to urge President George W. Bush to help relieve us of the outragous, and still increasing, costs of fuel.
Revoke Alanis Morissette's NEW U.S. Citizenship.
Pres. Bush's Center for Disease Control is gutting HIV-prevention and condom education in the United States.
The new CDC guildlines which willl be in effect soon, denounce condom use, calling condom education "obscene" and "ineffective" while teaching abstinence as the only way to prevent the spread of AIDS.
The fact is that condom and "safer sex" practices and education thereof save lives and help prevent AIDS, STDs, and unwanted pregnancies.
Pulished only on June 16, the deadline for public comments to try to get the new CDC censorship rules changed is August 16.
Sign here if you want to help try to save condom education programs.
Besides signing this petition, you may also contact the CDC by e-mail to HIVComments@cdc.gov or fax to 404-639-3125

March 7, 2004
Just below the point where the Andes first begin to rise out of the Amazon Forest, the Urubamba River enters one of the most isolated places on earth.
This still un-exploited and largely un-charted region of Amazonia is partially protected by Manu National Park on its edge; past the far border of the national park and at the center of the forest is the Nahua-Kugapakori Indian Reservation. This land was granted by the Peruvian government to the thousands of indigenous people of that area.
Due to the inaccessability of the region, some of these people are still largely or even totally unaware of the outside world, that they are living on an Indian reservation, or that the country of Peru even exists. Also, due to the inaccessibility, stability, and natural-history of this area, the lower Urubamba river country has been proclaimed by numerous studies as the most biologically diverse on earth -- home to numerous ecosystem levels from lowland to cloud forests, rare black caimans, trees that -- according to legend -- walk on their roots, and the headwaters of the Amazon.
In the words of one study, the lower Urubamba is ¨the last place on earth¨ where anybody should be drilling for fossil fuels. Yet, inexplicably, in this heart of hearts of the Amazon Rainforest, the massive Camisea Gas Mega-Project is about to step in.
This project´s major corporate beneficiaries are White House connected Hunt Oil and Cheney subsidiary Halliburton Co.; both of these companies have terrifying, blundering environmental track records.
Their plan is to build platforms, roads and two pipelines from a huge concession in the middle of the forest and through the rugged Vilcabamba mountains, parts of which may have been untouched by human feet until explorers arrived in the 1960´s. 75 percent of Camisea platforms will likely be built in the Nahua-Kugapakori Reserve; this will not only disrupt the centuries-old ways of life of three or more nomadic tribes -- it also has historically meant, and is currently meaning, death for these people.
Though environmental impact reports have not been satisfactorily completed, construction in the lower Urubamba area is already well underway, with little or no supervision. Massive erosion is ensuing.
Environmental disruption has caused fish and wildlife to die off or disappear. This is not only a ripple of biological and ecological tragedy, it means isolated societies inside and outside of the reservation are now facing, possibly for the first time, that pre-imminent feature of our society - preventable chronic malnutrition.
At the same time, Camisea operatives are, for reasons of project productivity, actively and forcibly contacting uncontacted and voluntarily isolated tribes, in violation of the United Nations ILO Convention 169. This is ostensibly to sidestep the skirmishes which usually ensue in projects such as their´s, but the local peoples vulnerability is being actively -- and probably purposefully -- ignored.
However I, and we the undersigned, refuse to ignore the plight of these people and their land.
1) bearing in mind both the global and continent-wide environmental impact of pipe-line rupture, erosion, cultural degredation, and road building in the Urubamba.
2) bearing in mind that the Nahua tribe, first contacted in the 1980's during gas exploration in the region, lost nearly fifty-percent of its members to influenza and whooping cough epidemics in the few years following, and that now, as contact once again escalates in the latest stage of the project, stable, isolated or recently contacted tribes are once again being moved in upon by imported gastro-intestinal and respiratory diseases -- to which these Amazonian Indians still have no resistence.
We refuse to allow this project to continue -- it is not to late to stop it if we don´t give up!
"Hey, how come we don't get Election Day off?" I'm sure this idea has been talked about frequently in barber shops, coffee shops, bars, college campuses and living rooms around the country. It's not a new idea. Most recently some friends of this petition's author agreed that they'd sign a petition pleading for the creation of a new federal holiday on election day, if one was put before them. So here it is guys. We get Columbus Day off, we celebrate our independence from Britain; so why not celebrate the vote?!?
P.S. Voting on Sunday is an unacceptable alternative because it conflicts with some widely held religious beliefs but not with others.
