Thank You and God Bless You !

محمد باقر مرادی، عضو سرای اهل قلم به ۵ سال حبس تعزیری محکوم شده است.
به گزارش کمیته گزارشگران حقوق بشر ،در پی احضار تلفنی محمد باقر مرادی از بازداشت شدگان سرای اهل قلم به شعبه ۲۶ دادگاه انقلاب، از سوی قاضی پیرعباس حکم ۵ سال حبس تعزیری به اتهام اجتماع و تبانی به ایشان ابلاغ شد.
این در حالی است که فشارها و تهدیدات بر اعضای سرای اهل قلم همچنان ادامه داشته و اعضای آن به وزارت اطلاعات و پلیس امنیت احضار میشوند. در همین ارتباط صبح دیروز اکبر امینی ارمکی و تعداد دیگری از اعضا سرای اهل قلم که نخواستند نامشان فاش شود به دفتر پیگیری وزارت اطلاعات احضار شدند.
محمد باقر مرادی در تاریخ سه شنبه ۹ آبان سال گذشته در پی ورود نیروهای امنیتی به جلسه سرای اهل قلم به همراه ۷۰ نفر دیگر از حاضرین در جلسه بازداشت شده بود، که پس از آزادی بسیاری از متهمان، همراه با ۱۶ نفر که مهدی خزعلی هم در میان آنها بود، به زندان اوین منتقل شد. دو نفر دیگر نیز به نامهای پژمان ظفرمند و مهدی کریمی در اقدامی جداگانه توسط پلیس امنیت بازداشت و به اوین منتقل شدند. این در حالی است که از افراد بازداشت شده، مهدی خزعلی همچنان در بند ۲۰۹ زندان اوین در بازداشت به سر میبرد.
گفتنی است که با احتساب حکم صادر شده برای محمد باقر مرادی، مجموعا ۲۱ سال حبس تعزیری و ۱۵ سال محرومیت از عضویت در احزاب و گروها و فعالیتهای رسانه ای و فضای مجازی برای بازداشت شدگان سرای اهل قلم صادر شده است.
دکتر هانی یازرلو فعال سیاسی باسابقه در منزل شخصی خود بازداشت شد.
بنا به اطلاع گزارشگران هرانا، ارگان خبری مجموعه فعالان حقوق بشر در ایران، دکتر هانی یازرلو فعال سیاسی با سابقه که پیشتر از سوی شعبه ۲۶ دادگاه انقلاب تهران به ریاست قاضی یحی پیرعباسی به ۱ سال حبس و ۱۵ سال تبعید محکوم شده بود جهت اجرای محکومیت خود بازداشت و روانه زندان شده است.
یکی از نزدیکان خانواده ایشان که نخواست نامش فاش شود به گزارشگر هرانا گفت: "ماموران امنیتی امروز صبح به منزل دکتر یازرلو مراجعه کردند که ایشان را برای اجرای حکم بازداشت کنند، ولی به دلیل نبود ایشان در منزل مامورین چند ساعت بعد دوباره مراجعه میکنند و به محض ورود دکتر یازرلو به منزل، وارد خانه میشوند و با ارائهی حکم از اجرای احکام دادسرای مقدسی اوین، وی را بازداشت و روانه زندان میکنند."
وی همچنین ادامه داد: "در حکمی که ماموران به همراه داشتند ذکر شده بود که ایشان از ۳۱ اردیبهشت تا ۳۱ خرداد باید خود را به زندان معرفی کند که در مقابل اعتراض دکتر یازرلو به اینکه تا یک ماه دیگر وقت معرفی دارد وی را با خود بردند."
وی در خصوص مکانی که هانی یازرلو به آن منتقل شده گفت: "ما هنوز اطلاع دقیقی نداریم، اما به احتمال قوی به بند ۳۵۰ زندان اوین منتقل شده اند."
گفتنی است، هانی یازرلو پیشتر در اردیبهشت سال ۱۳۹۰ توسط مامورین وزارت اطلاعات در منزل مسکونی خود بازداشت و پس از چند ماه با قرار وثیقه از زندان آزاد گردید.
وی که پیشتر در دادگاه بدوی (شعبه ۲۶ دادگاه انقلاب به ریاست قاضی یحیی پیرعباسی) به ۱ سال زندان در ایرانشهر و ۱۵ سال تبعید به ایرانشهر محکوم شده بود، در شعبه ۳۶ دادگاه تجدید نظر به ریاست قاضی زرگر به ۱ سال زندان در مشهد و ۱۵ سال نفی بلد به این شهر محکوم گردید.
اتهامی که دکتر هانی یازرلو بابت آن محاکمه و به این مجازات سنگین محکوم شده، "تبلیغ علیه نظام جمهوری اسلامی" میباشد و دلیل این اتهام نیز مصاحبه ایشان در زمانی است که دو فرزند و همسرش در زندان بودند و زندان از آزادی یکی از فرزندان وی (هود یازرلو) که دوره محکومیت قانونی خود را به پایان رسانده بود خود داری میکرد.
دکتر هانی یازرلو از زندانیان سیاسی قبل از انقلاب بهمن ۵۷ و همچنین دهه ۶۰ میباشد و زمانی که در اردیبهشت ماه ۱۳۹۰ بازداشت شد، دوفرزندش بنامهای حامد یازرلو و هود یازرلو و همچنین همسرش بنام نازیلا دشتی در زندان دوران محکومیت خود را سپری میکردند.

نامق محمودی زندانی سیاسی کرد زندان رجایی شهر کرج که در آستانه نابینایی بسر میبرد، همچنان با بی توجهی مسئولین زندان روبروست.
بنا به اطلاع گزارشگران هرانا، ارگان خبری مجموعه فعالان حقوق بشر در ایران، نامق محمودی زندانی سیاسی ۶۲ ساله سالن ۱۲ زندان رجایی شهر کرج که مدتهاست از بیماری آبمروارید رنج میبرد و در آستانه نابینایی قرار دارد با وجودی که قرار بود روز دوشنبه برای انجام عمل جراحی در بیمارستان فارابی تهران بستری شود، با کارشکنی مسئولین از انجام مراحل درمانی خود بازمانده است.
یکی از همبندیان این زندانی سیاسی به گزارشگر هرانا گفت: "دکتر بیمارستان فارابی برای نامق محمودی سیتی اسکن تجویز نموده بود و قرار بود بعد از این کار وی مورد عمل جراحی قرار گیرد. ولی مسئولین بجای اینکه وی را جهت آزمایش سیتی اسکن به بیمارستان منتقل کنند، نامق را به بیمارستان رجایی کرج برده که فاقد دستگاه سیتی اسکن میباشد."
وی ادامه داد: "پزشکان معتقدند که آب مروارید وی در حال پیشرفت است و باید در اولین فرصت مورد عمل جراحی قرار گیرد، ولی مسئولین زندان بدلایلی هربار در کار وی تاخیر ایجاد میکنند."
نامق محمودی زندانی سیاسی ۶۲ ساله، ۱۷ فروردین ماه سال گذشته به همراه سه فرزند خود، توسط وزارت اطلاعات بازداشت و در بند اطلاعات سنندج و سپس ۲۰۹ اوین مورد بازجویی قرار گرفت و سپس به سالن ۱۲ زندان رجایی شهر کرج منتقل گردید.

Another child is murdered, abused, molested. We are all appalled, disgusted, upset .
We can make a change, if we all rally together we can force the government to change how DOCS respond, how they protect these children , They should be held accountable. Let's be heard rather than just being sad , lets make a change.
Mothers are the primary carers everywhere in the world. Caring for children, sick, disabled and elderly people is work vital to society.
Carers are impoverished. Income Support is being abolished. Child Benefit, society’s commitment to children, is no longer universal. Carer’s Allowance is insultingly low and most carers don’t even qualify. 200,000 care workers are denied the minimum wage.
When mothers are impoverished, children suffer: hunger, ill-health, and more often taken into care.
Mothers are told they are ‘workless’ and that earning is more important than caring. They are pushed into jobs regardless of hours, pay or childcare provision. The right to have children is being challenged.
Mothers are forced into unpaid work to ‘earn’ their benefits (‘workfare’). ‘Workfare’ bypasses the minimum wage, driving down all wages, especially women’s, and undermining pay equity.
Having to fit caring around jobs results in overwork, exhaustion and ill-health. Grandparents must often leave retirement to help.
Employed mothers (or fathers) who take time off to care for children or relatives, lose pay, promotion and future pension.
When caring work is devalued, people, relationships and life itself are devalued. The result is inequity and social neglect, but also environmental destruction and war.
Demanding time and resources for caring aims to redirect economic and social policies towards people and the planet, and away from the uncaring market.

A full month after the arrest of freelance photojournalist Reza Entesari, there is still no news available about him. A source told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that the photojournalist was arrested along with a large group of Dervishes in late August 2011 when he was photographing a gathering of Gonabadi Dervishes, and was transferred to Evin Prison’s Ward 209.
According to the source, the former photography student has not had any contact with his family and has been not been allowed to see a lawyer. Several other individuals arrested with Entesari, including Alireza Roshan, Ali Karami, Mehdi Osanlou, Farzaneh Nouri, Farzad Darvish, Behzad Nouri, and Ali Astaraki, were released 3 October 2011.
Despite the completion of his interrogation, reporter and photojournalist Reza Entesari remains detained inside Evin Prison’s Ward 209. “The Investigative Judge converted his temporary detention orders to bail orders. But despite completion of his interrogations, as he is unable to post the $50,000 bail, he remains in temporary detention inside Evin Prison’s Security Ward 209,” a source close to the case told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
“Considering Mr. Entesari is a regular reporter and is obviously unable to come up with the bail amount, we would like the judge to change the bail order to one of custodianship [where the prisoner is released to the custody of a court-approved individual], so that he is released,” said the source on condition of anonymity.
Freelance photojournalist Reza Entessari, a former photography student at News University, was arrested on 5 September along with several Gonabadi Dervishes, and was transferred to Intelligence Ministry’s Ward 209 at Evin Prison.

On March 15th, my dad, Daniel Bowers SR was killed in a motorcycle accident. My dad was going east on 104th and Washington and a guy in truck pulled out in front of him, making a left turn going west causing my dad to slam into his back left tire. He died of impact. The man is being charged with reckless driving resulting in death, which in the state of Colorado is a misdemeanor.
We have 10 witness reports stating that the guy rushed out of the parking lot trying to beat my dad and another car. The car was able to move out of the way my dad tried everything he could do to stop but he wasn't too lucky. The guy took away a very loved man. He was a father of three, a grandpa, a brother, a son, a best friend and so much more. It's not far the guy gets to live his life like nothing happened. We lost a very important piece in our lives that we will never get back. The less that could happen is the guy gets charge with a felony. It just seems like all he gets is a slap on the hand and he gets to go on with his life. I know he's living with guilt but it's not the same.
I want to see something happen even if he doesn't get charge, I do not want this to happen to anyone else's loved ones. It should be a law that if you are charged with reckless driving resulting in death the charges should be a felony.
My grandson Clayton Bohanon 17 y.o. was murdered, shot in the head ten times March 26, 2008 by an adult 28 y.o. He left home to visit his girlfriend at McDonald's restaurant where she worked. He was lured to a house, and introduced to the homeowner as his cousin from Indianapolis. He was later taken away in a car by this man and murdered. My Grandson lived with me and after working out difficulties he had, I enrolled him in Purdue C.C. where he majored in criminal justice and foreign language, he looked forward to being able to help other teens when he graduated.
He started classes at Purdue at 16 y.o. He did not deserve what happened to him. The animal that murdered him, after hiding was arrested and acquitted at the trial held June 4-2012.
The Liberia National Police (LNP), acting on behalf of the Government of Liberia, arrested journalist Darlington C. Pelenah on July 29, 2012 and charged him, along with Benjamin Bokie Gbar and William Randolph, with the crimes of criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.
The three were charged based on a complaint by an alleged victim Weeks Thomas that he and two others were held at gun point by the defendants and robbed of US$17,000.00. Weeks Thomas reported that one of his boys, Edwin Thomas was shot in the head by journalist Pelenah on the night of the alleged armed robbery.
Journalist Pelenah and the others were subsequently indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts and have been in detention at the Monrovia Central Prison since their arrest in July 2012.
Since the arrest and detention of journalist Pelenah and co-defendants, their trial has been suspended and postponed several times on flimsy excuses. Many people, including media practitioners, the defendants, and family members believe the repeated suspension and postponement of the trial is a deliberate violation of the right of the defendants to a fair and speedy trial in keeping with due process of law.
The action by the state puts the lives of journalist Pelenah and co-defendants at risk, as armed robbery is a capital office punishable by life imprisonment or death based on its degree.
Journalist Pelenah, Benjamin Bokie Gbar, and William Randolph are now in prolonged detention, crying out for freedom and justice.
Every single document and statement that the police and prosecution have issued so far in relation to the case lacks consistency, relevance and reliability. None of the defendants was arrested on the alleged crime scene. There are no forensic reports or on-the-scene photographs linking the defendants to the commission of the crimes for which they’ve been charged.
Accounts by the alleged victims, which formed the basis for the charges brought against journalist Pelenah and co-defendants, have also been grossly inconsistent.
Since journalist Pelenah’s arrest in July, 2012, the Government of Liberia has had many opportunities to prove its case beyond every reasonable doubt but have failed miserably. The government has employed every known legal trick to delay his trial, ranging from unexplainable postponement and suspension to disbandment of trial jury. By so doing, the Government of Liberia continues to deny him the right to a fair and speedy trial in keeping with due process of law.
Journalist Pelenah and co-defendants have all denied the charges and pleaded not guilty to the alleged crime. And, from all indications, the Government of Liberia does not have a case against and will go to great length to apply every known legal trick to delay their trial and keep them in detention for the rest of their lives.
As the government continues to fail to prove its case beyond all reasonable doubt, we request the unconditional release of journalist Pelenah and co-defendants.
Sanjay Dutt is one of India’s best and most distinguished actors. However this should in no way influence the way in which he has to face justice for a serious crime he has committed. There cannot be a system in India where the privileged can escape punishment.
He has been convicted of the offence of using his privileged position to arrange a safe venue for a cache of arms and explosives that had been received from Pakistan by the Mumbai underworld to organise the serial blasts in March 1993 that killed 257 innocent people and seriously injured another 713. Whether or not he knew what these gangsters/terrorists were going to do with the weapons and explosives has not been proven, but the undisputed fact is that he knew that he was helping illegally procured firearms and explosives be procured and distributed by criminals.
His conviction has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and he has been convicted to 5 years imprisonment.
Sanjay Dutt and his family are very privileged parts of India’s upper class elite, with very powerful friends. His late father was a successful actor turned politician, as is his mother. His sister is a Congress Member of Parliament for Mumbai North Central.
There is a powerful push underway, orchestrated by connections of Sanjay Dutt to have him pardoned by the Governor of Maharashtra, B Shankarkand, (who apparently has the power to do this). The Governor of an Indian state is essentially a political appointee of the ruling party, and therefore there will be considerable pressure on the Governor to grant pardon to Sanjay Dutt.
This petition, directed to the Governor aims to bring together the voices of persons in India and around the world who think there should be ONE RULE OF LAW for all, and that the rich, famous and well-connected should not be able to circumvent the law in any way.
For further insight into the issues at stake for India, please read:

13. We All Are ONE!
When you look at all of the problems facing the world today--environmental exploitation, animal cruelty, hunger, poverty, greed, war, and many more--the fundamental problem can be seen as a fragmented mindset, one which perceives everything else as something separate from the self.
In the words of noted quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami:
"The ultimate disease--the root disease--is the illusory thinking that we are separate from the Whole. To heal the disease is to realize that we are Whole, that the separation is but an illusion."
Thus, the goal of this petition is to heal the fragmented mentality through promoting an ethical system based on the most fundamental, universal, unifying belief in the world: that everything emanates from One, Supremely Good and Beautiful Source, and, therefore, everything is essentially One.
This simple, universal belief has resounding ethical implications (e.g. we should treat all things with love, compassion, and respect), healing the world on a fundamental level.
This belief is so universal and so powerful, it is high time it receives its due honor and support.
So, please, take a stand with us and declare: We all are One!
Claude Duboc is a French citizen being held in an American prison. Who is requesting repatriation back to France based on the 1983 Prisoner Transfer Treaty signed between the Republic of France & the United States.
The treaty states that each country's respective nationals may purge their sentence in their country of nationality. In his case France. He has been turned down three times for the most inane reasons. His 4th application went into Washington, D.C., Department of Justice and its sub division the I.P.T.U. (International Prisoner Transfer Unit) January 31, 2013. The quest is he want to "do" his sentence in a French prison which will save American tax payers $35,000 usd per year (this "35" is the estimated cost of caring for a Federal Inmate by the Bureau of Prisons per year).
Claude is being held in a maximum security federal penetenary for CONSPIRACY to import and distribute marijuana as well as laundering money. He will have served 19 years as of March 24, 2013. Claude has been sentanced to life plus five! He is non violent criminal.
As a person on Social Security Disability, I was startled to discover that Goodwill does not provide discounts for Persons Of Disabilities (Students and Seniors get discounts however.)
I contacted Corporate in Montana and the reason given, was the 'tricky issue of how one proves they are disabled'. Why Bus passes and/or Social Security cards and/or ID's would not provide that information escapes me. And frankly it's hot air.

LETS GET THIS 2ND PETITION EVEN HIGHER
THE COALITION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, LABOR UNIONS, CONCERNED CITIZENS FOR THE RELEASE OF IMPRISONED NYPD OFFICER RICHARD DIGUGLIELMO
We are requesting your support for a clemency application of Richard DiGuglielmo, a veteran of the New York Police Department who was convicted of depraved indifference murder after a series of tragic events in which Officer DiGuglielmo shot and killed a man who had struck Officer DiGuglielmo's father with a metal baseball bat. Additional information about Officer DiGuglielmo and his case is available at http://www.richarddiguglielmo.org/
As you may know Officer DiGuglielmo was convicted of a murder stemming from a 1996 off-duty incident where he effectively saved his father's life. A New York State Supreme Court Justice subsequently released Officer DiGuglielmo in 2008 only for Officer DiGuglielmo's conviction to be re-instated after 20 months of freedom by a NYS Court of Appeals decision. A recent and probably final decision by the United States Court of Appeals has affirmed the NYS Court of Appeals decision. In the courts opinion they effectively stated that Officer DiGuglielmo's gun was a more serious threat than the baseball bat used to strike his Officer DiGuglielmo's father with TWICE! The court further opined, that Charles Campbell lacked intent to use the baseball bat as a deadly weapon because he never struck DiGuglielmo Sr. near the head or other vital area!
Article 35 of the NYS Penal Law effectively states: A person may use physical force upon another person when and to the extent he or she reasonably believes such to be necessary to defend himself, herself or a third person from what he or she reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful physical force by such other person.
In People v. Talbert, the court held that an object as ordinary as a broom handle could be considered a weapon under the Penal Law if there exist the requisite intent to use the object unlawfully against another. The object in question was a broom handle…in Officer DiGUGLIELMO 'S CASE IT WAS A METAL BASEBALL BAT!
We have effectively come to a point of critical mass in relation to this case. The rulings by the NYS and Federal Appeals Courts in relation to this case have enormous ramifications nationwide for Police Officers, Peace Officers, and Citizens who may have to use deadly physical force. At this point there are no legal options left. We need your support in our effort to petition the NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo for clemency. We eagerly await your response.
Several people have been attacked in Mexico, including a one-year-old child and a teenage girl, and stray dogs are being blamed for these attacks. However, there is not that much true evidence that the dogs actually are responsible.
They were tested for rabies, but the results were negative. They were also tested for traces of human DNA, but the results have not come back yet.
The dogs are all, apparently, very scared at the moment. Although it is likely that others of the same species may have been responsible for the attacks, it is unlikely that these dogs are the true killers.
However, some people still think that they were responsible and they are at risk of being put on death row. The killing of these animals is probably not necessary, so why should it be done, especially when there is so little evidence that they are responsible?
Appointed Judges can be held accountable for misconduct and unfairness.They also can be removed from their post without an election if they cater to a specific Race, Religion, or election District.
Most importantly, a person is more likely to get a fair trial, because an appointed Judge would have to present a resume showing that he/she has experience in the Court room or the law.
This is not the case with an Elected Judge.
Ζητείται η αυτεπάγγελτη παρέμβαση εισαγγελέα και η δίωξη του κ. Ε.Βενιζέλου, κατόπιν αποκάλυψης ότι κατακρατά στην οικία του απόρρητα αμυντικά σχέδια της χώρας. Πέρα από την προφανή απονομή ευθυνών στον κ. Ε. Βενιζέλο για παραβίαση του Συντάγματος, καθώς μη έχοντας πλέον θεσμική ιδιότητα έχει στην κατοχή του και στο σπίτι του απόρρητα έγγραφα άμυνας της Ελλάδας, (κάτι που απαγορεύεται φυσικά και για εν ενεργεία υπουργό και όποιον άλλο δημόσιο λειτουργό), απαιτείται να γίνει έλεγχος σε ποιό βαθμό τα έγγραφα αυτά διαδόθηκαν εν αγνοία ή μη του κ. Ε. Βενιζέλου.
The war on cannabis began in the United States in the early 1900's and has proven to be a failed policy that has shown no progress and has only resulted in the arrests of millions of U.S. citizens and labeled them as "criminals" causing lifelong social consequences, thus exacerbating a problem that belongs in the category of public health and not law enforcement.
Medical marijuana is now legal in 18 states and Washington D.C. and marijuana has been fully legalized in 2 more states. Legalization is overwhelmingly supported by people under the age of 40 who have seen firsthand accounts of the social consequences that result from the arrests of so many people because they use a relatively harmless substance when compared to other potentially harmful substances such as fast food, sodas, alcohol, hard drugs etc.
Congress has continually shown no interest in addressing this issue due to the fact that re-election is more important these days than addressing the real problems that our country faces and they are simply too afraid of being seen as "soft" on drugs even though the public is increasingly sick and tired of wasting resources on this losing battle.
The most common sense way that we, the people, can solve this issue is to use our constitutional right of jury nullification when we are called on to serve in a jury related to potential marijuana convictions.
We are a group of Chinese individuals and organisations who come together to express our concern at the murder conviction of Mr Zhen Dong Zhao. Mr Noel Fagan died as a result of an assault by Mr Zhao immediately following a theft and assault by Mr Fegan on Mr Zhao.
Mr Zhao was convicted on the 4th of December 2013 and we fail understand how a jury could convict Mr Zhao by a 10-2 majority of murder. We believe the verdict is perverse in both law and fact.
Mr Zhao had at all times admitted the assault and was willing to accept the consequences that flowed from that. Mr Zhao accepted that he had overreacted and regretted the death of Mr Fagan. Our point of concern is that Mr Zhao was willing to accept the charge of manslaughter but was contesting the charge of murder. The DPP refused to accept a plea to manslaughter.
In a recent case from Dundalk where a Mr Douglas Ward without provocation attacked an 18 year old youth previously unknown to him and kicked him to death the DPP accepted a plea to manslaughter whereas in Mr Zhao's case which was a lot less clear the DPP would not accept a manslaughter plea and sought a murder conviction.
On every level Mr Ward would seem to be far more culpable for the death of his victim and there appeared to be much stronger independent testimony available. On its face it would seem to be murder yet the DPP were willing to accept a manslaughter plea.
Our concern is why a murder conviction was pursued with such vigour in circumstances which would seem to amount to manslaughter against a foreign national. We further believe the judge should not have put the option of murder before the jury where the facts simply did not support this.
Since the tragedy’s at Columbine High School on April 20th of 1999, our nation has bared witness to more than it's rightful share of school shootings, massacres and terrorists acts.
The most recent of such attacks happened on December 14, 2012, at Sandy Hooks Elementary School in Newton, CT killing 20 six and seven year old children and six adults. Our children are not safe. This cannot be tolerated any longer in simple hopes of a better solution. Our children have the right to go to school and be safe from the tyranny of terrorists.
It is up to you Mr. President and our respected, elected officials to grant us the means necessary to better arm our schools and shield our beloved. This threat cannot be solved by written law to try and deter terror. Taking away guns leaves our children left to fate and that’s a risk parents are not willing to take. We want our schools armed.
ASCAT demands that every school have at least one armed Police or Military Officer on campus during school hours and extended activities after school hours. The following is a list of other demands we want to see enforced:
1. Five willing and evaluated teachers from every campus to undergo police and firearm training, licensed to carry a concealed firearm.
2. Required firearm training and carrying license for the principal of every school and have them armed on campus.
3. Gun safes in classrooms of participating teachers and principals office to restrain access by students.
4. Panic buttons placed in every classroom with a unique sound that can be delivered throughout the school and to police to alert of terrorists attacks.
5. Teacher & Staff anti-terrorists seminars and workshops.
6. Act and Respond panic drills for students.
7. Locks on classrooms with reinforced doors and glass.
8. Better front door security and reinforcements.
9. Secondary devices such as electric tasers for participating teachers and principal.
10. Secondary reinforced door access to student population.
This isn’t a battle that is going to end without a fight. For the safety of our children and our educators we must arm our schools. It is just a matter of time before this happens again and when it does we must be ready.
You can’t stop a terrorist from attempting an attack, but you can stand up against them when the attack is made.
This is to urge the government of India to give rapid justice to the Delhi gang rape victim who died on 29/12/2012 succumbing to multiple injuries.
There has been a rise in rape cases across all states of India. Recently there was a severe case against a 23 year old medical student who was brutally assaulted and raped by a group of men. Some men take law into their hand as we are very smooth with them even after they get caught. A case runs for years and their is no justice given to victim. How long can this go.
We need severe measures to protect our women. Take measures before it happens. Install camera everywhere possible and have a thorough check of each vehicle at night time. Remove all tinted glasses from 4 wheelers.
There are many such suggestions. We would also like to hear from all of you.
Shri Manmohan Singh,
The Prime Minister Of India,
South Block, Raisina Hill,
Subject: PETITION FOR STRONGER LAWS TO ENSURE BETTER SECURITY OF WOMEN IN INDIA
Today we write to you in the aftermath of the incident, where a young girl of only 23 years of age was brutally gang raped and left to die while her friend who tried to defend her was beaten up.
We usually take pride in us being Indians, a country where girls are called the incarnation of Goddess Laxmi and are put at a pedestal to be worshipped. But sexual harassment is a less talked about subject that afflicts 50% of the population. It is a known fact, that every woman, be it then as our mothers, sisters, wives or friends, has suffered this indignation at some point in time and so much so that most of them silently bear this humiliation. It has become impossible for woman to move freely without a constant worry and a deeply ingrained fear.
What further, complicates matters is the attached stigma, which prevents most women from standing up against this crime. Police insensitivity in such cases and the lacunae in the law (Section 354 and 509 of the IPC being cognizable but bailable offences, and bail is known to be granted in a vast majority of the cases.), not being a deterrent enough, is contributing to the rising statistics of crime against women
The famous dictum, 'The role of the government is to make it easy for people to do good and difficult to do evil' is more relevant than ever. We therefore request you to act swiftly and decisively in this regards.
People who have shared news about Redhack on social media sites have been arrested and remanded in prison.
Prosecutors are demanding 24 years for them and the only intention of this case is to stop the support for Redhack who have surfaced lies and deceits of the government.

To President Barack Obama, United States of America
WE the National and International Supporters of Federal Prisoner Native American Human & Environmental Activist Leonard Peltier (89637-132) do with Good Faith & Solidarity respectfully ask President Barack Obama of the United States of America to acknowledge, accept, and enact immediately the 2011 unanimously passed (NCAI) National Congress of American Indians’ Resolution for Executive Clemency for Leonard Peltier which was presented in December 2011 at the Tribal Conference in Washington DC.
The facts presented in this Resolution remain unchanged today with exception to the fact that Leonard Peltier is now 1 year older. http://goo.gl/NgDKv
Since NCAI presented their Resolution for Clemency in 2011, James Anaya, The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples presented his unbiased well-researched investigative report on the conditions and concerns of Native Americans to the United Nations. In Mr. Anaya’s report he favored Executive Clemency for Leonard Peltier. http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/HRBodies/HRCouncil/RegularSession/Session21/A-HRC-21-47-Add1_en.pdf
Leonard is 68 years old. He continues to suffer from un-treated and under-treated health problems. Despite his physical pain, suffering, limitations and the InJustice served upon him for close to 4 decades, he made a public statement during the recent presidential election campaign urging Native Americans and All other Americans of Voting age to exercise their Right-to-Vote! Leonard continues to work for his Humanitarian and Environmental causes as best he can.
WE Thank The Obama Administration for actively working with the NCAI to improve the severe conditions that continues to plague our Sovereign Nations. There is a long road ahead as so much more is needed to Right past Wrongs, to ensure Positive and Healthy Outcomes and to decrease the Prejudice and Racism that continues to prevail in some areas. WE understand that enacting Changes takes time… HOWEVER….WE know that Clemency for Leonard Peltier ONLY takes YOU, The Clemency Papers and A Pen!! Please Right the Wrongs of almost 4 decades IMMEDIATELY; Grant Executive Clemency to Leonard Peltier!
In Good Faith & Solidarity WE thank you for your time and consideration and ask that you sign those Clemency Papers NOW!
Reyhaneh Haj Ebranim Dabagh is an Iranian citizen who has never been involved in political activities.
On December 27, 2009, the day of ‘Ashura,’ Reyhaneh Haj Ebrahim Dabagh was arrested at the home of her friend, Motahareh Bahrami Haghighi. Also arrested were her friend Motahareh and her husband, Mohsen Daneshpour Moghadam, and their son Ahmad Daneshpour Moghadam. On this day people in Iran were holding rallies in protest of the disputed 2009 presidential election results. Reyhaneh was arrested because she happened to be at her friend’s house on that day, and she was transferred to solitary confinement in Evin prison.
Trial and Sentence
Reyhaneh was accused of taking part in demonstrations and “sending pictures and videos of the demonstrations to foreign countries and the Mojahedin Khalq (MKO) organization.” The Revolutionary Court sentenced her and all the people she had been arrested with, to death. This death sentence was handed down even though the only reason she had been detained was that she happened to be at her friend’s house on the day of the arrest. Her sentence was later commuted by branch 54 of the Tehran Appeals court, to 15 year in jail and exile to Rajai Shahr prison in the city of Karaj.
Reyhaneh Haj Ebrahim Dabagh was initially held in solitary confinement in ward 209 in Evin prison, and after that, she was transferred to the public women’s ward of the prison. On November 10, 2010, she was transferred to Rajai Shahr prison in the city of Karaj, where she is now serving her sentence.
ریحانه حاج ابراهیم دباغ شهروند ایرانی است که هیچگونه فعالیت سیاسی نداشته است.
ریحانه حاج ابراهیم دباغ در روز عاشورا، ششم دیماه ۱۳۸۸ همراه با مطهره بهرامی و شوهر و فرزندش محسن دانشپور مقدم و احمد دانشپور مقدم در منزل آنان بازداشت شد. در این روز که مردم ایران به تظاهرات اعتراضی نسبت به نتایج انتخابات ریاست جمهوری در ایران پرداخته بودند، حضور وی در منزل نزدیکانش منجر به بازداشت وی شد. وی بعد از بازداشت به زندان اوین و سلولهای انفرادی بند ۲۰۹ آن منتقل شد.
اتهامات و حکم
ریحانه حاج ابراهیم به خاطر اتهاماتی همچون شرکت در تظاهراتهای اعتراضی و و«ارسال عکس و فلیم از راهپیماییهای اعتراضی به خارج از کشور و سازمان مجاهدین» در دادگاه انقلاب ابتدا به اعدام محکوم شد. این حکم در حالی صادر شده بود که همپروندههای وی نیز به چنین حکمی محکوم شدند و او صرفا به دلیل حضور در خانهی آنان بازداشت شده بود. اما اینحکم در شعبه ۵۳ دادگاه تجدید نظر استان تهران به ۱۵ سال زندان با تبعید به زندان رجاییشهر تبدیل شد.
ابراهیم دباغ که در دوران بازداشت در سلولهای انفرادی بند ۲۰۹ زندان اوین و پس از آن به بند عمومی زنان زندان اوین به سر میبرد، در آبان ۱۳۸۹ از زندان اوین برای اجرای حکم تبعیدش به زندان رجاییشهر کرج منتقل شد.
Pedophiles are not getting harsh enough sentences. They are given slaps on the wrist and are often free to re-offend soon after conviction. Here`s just 2 examples of many:
-David James Lebanc. He was one of the 2 men involved in the confinement and sexual assault of a 16 yr old boy for two weeks in Halifax. He was already facing pending charges from 2010 for sexual assault, touching a person under age 16, and making child pornography with a 2yr old and a 5yr old! Leblanc was released in 2010 so long as he didn`t go near children. He failed to comply in 2011, and served only 18 days in prison! This assault on the 16yr old boy was 100% preventable. Our judicial system failed that boy.
-Christopher Paul Neil. He served a mere 5 yrs. in a Thai prison for posting hundreds of pictures of him assaulting more than one child. He was arrested upon his return to Canada for being a threat to all children, yet was released a few days later so long as he promises not to go near children. Sound familiar?
As per recent news articles, Harper's C-10 crime bill gives harsher sentences to pot growers than to pedophiles. Something is wrong with that.
Why are these monsters allowed to get away with this? Our system needs some reform. As long as the penalties remain as slack as they are, this is going to keep happening.
Justice for All
Please register your 'Call for a Royal Commission into the Banking Sector of Australia', with broad terms of reference.
Many Australians are victims of Full Doc, Low Doc and No Doc LAF fraud in Australia. The President of BFCSA (Inc), Ms Denise Brailey, recently spoke at a Senate Hearing in Canberra and produced undeniable and indisputable evidence of Australian banks and lenders' widespread involvement in Loan Application Fraud.
There are countless victims who have had their houses and businesses taken illegally by the banks.
There is also the serious situation of regulators turning a blind eye to consumer complaints and the same regulators supporting the banks. The regulators are hiding behind flawed legislation and their own internal policies.
This petition will be presented to the Australian Government to indicate the Will of the People that a Royal Commission into the banking sector must be instigated as a matter of urgency.
