My three year old daughter was attacked while being looked after at a neighbour's house. Their border collie tore my daughters face, she needed 60 stitches and three operations, that is to date, she will need more in the future.
The dog is still allowed to live in there family home and it is to her discretion whether or not to have the dog destroyed as the dangerous dogs act only applies to dogs who bite in public.
This woman lives two roads down and still allows her dog to roam the street and walk freely around her home where her twin girls (also 3) live.
This dangerous dog should not be allowed to walk freely among her own children who are not old enough to understand the danger or to roam the street in front of her house.
We, citizens of Europe, ask our representatives in the European Parliament to vote in favour of a European law which will protect European consumers.
This law forces computer manufacturers to supply the operating system on a media (CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) separate from the computer's hardware. Furthermore, this law adds minimal rights concerning the use of operating systems: the operating system must be used on a single computer, but this computer may change over time; the operating system may be installed and used on a laptop computer if the user already owns a licence for a desktop computer. This law must guarantee that the individual has the right to choose, freely, his or her operating system and the computer in which that operating system will be used.
This measure must allow the consumers to reinstall the operating system under the following conditions:
- my hard drive has been destroyed and I have to buy a new one;
- I'm buying a new computer and I certify that my old computer is disabled and that it has not been sold or given to a third party.
We recognise that software publishers have the right to protect themselves against software piracy, but not at the expense of the citizens. They must find a way to counter software piracy which does not have a negative impact on the citizens.
Let's collect 100,000 signatures in United Kingdom, in Ireland, and more than ONE million in Europe.
You should state
the place of residence of each petitioner.

Benny Wenda, Speaking from Police Custody in West Papua:
I am not a thief, neither am I a criminal or am I a separatist leader. I am standing for my people, in the names of truth and democracy, defending the aspiration and wish of my people. I am not arrested with the charges below, but because I am defending my rights, the fundamental rights to live freely, to eat freely, to move freely, to express my opinion freely and to gather and have social assosiations freely in this world and in this era.
I am a political prisoner for my people and my country.
Benny Wenda, S.Sos, Chairperson and or Secretary-General of the Koteka Tribal Assembly (Dewan Musyawarah Adat Masyarakat Koteka - Demmak) was arrested on 08 June 2002, 01:30PM Papua Time (+9GMT) due to three charges:
1. He owns two passports from two countries (Indonesia and PNG);
2. He organised the attack on Bloody Abepura 6-7 December 2000.
3. He was organising a new attacks on TNI and Police posts in West Papua.
All charges were exposed only some hours after arrest. In other words, the charges were given BEFORE proper and just legal proceedings. Charges have no legal bases.
We want to tell the Indonesian police and army that Indonesian does not promote and respect legal supremacy. That legal systems here are not working. That Benny should be released until his arrest is proven to be legally justified.
Arbitrary arrests and or charges before legal proceedings are the culture of the military and police in Indonesia. They do not respect and even they do not trust the legal systems they themselves established.
The occupation of Indonesia itself is illegal. Consequently, all state-terrorism acts in West Papua since 1963 have been violationg human rights.
We want your help to free Benny Wenda.
International Spokesperson AMP for Demmak
We are calling upon CEO H. Lee Scott to stop the vicious anti-union campaign his company uses to stop employees from legally organizing to better their working conditions.
We, the undersigned, want Wal-Mart to abide by American principles of fair play and free elections and allow Wal-Mart employees to have a free, fair and uncoerced election, and for Wal-Mart to live up to its legal obligation to bargain a contract if the employees choose to have the Union represent them. We promote the following:
-A Code of Ethical Conduct for the conduct of any election
-Join with the Union in allowing Las Vegas's faith community to independently monitor compliance with this Code of Ethical Conduct by both the company and the Union. The Union has agreed.
-Open all meetings with employees to members of Las Vegas's faith community. The Union has agreed to open all of its meetings with employees.
-Renounce such inherently coercive tactics as closed-door, "captive audience" meetings, where employees only receive one-sided propaganda, and to set a higher standard for labor relations in retailing by holding a series of joint appearances with Union representatives to guarantee employees full information before they vote.
