Petition Tag - peace
The nazis are coming? journalists and scientists across the globe are targeted after discovering the hazards of chemicals in the air and in our food due to chemtrails from war (bombs) and dirty fuel.
We ask for our human right to live together peacefully with a New World Organization.
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!
I want to live in a world where children can go to school without fear of violence.
Where journalists are not threatened for reporting on human rights abuses.
Where people from different backgrounds use dialogue rather than violence.
Where police can be trusted to protect citizens.
Where families are not forced to flee their homes.
"The ultimate victory will not be the one with the most powerful weapons. It will be the one with the most powerful spiritual vision."--Rabbi Simon Jacobson
History has shown that the true strength of the Jewish people lies in its relationship with G-D and with each other. As Rabbi Nosson Scherman has noted, "It is axiomatic in Jewish thought that the ultimate physical survival of Israel depends on its spiritual standing."
In light of this reality, we ask you to sign this petition seeking Divine protection in the quest for peace in Israel and the world.
If we can obtain at least 1,000 signatures, we can offer this petition at a special prayer service to be announced on this site.
We are asking for Divine protection and blessing.
La Olla de las Termas es única. Está conocida y querida no solamente por lugareños pero por viajeros y visitantes de todas partes y de todas edades. La Olla representa una fusión de la naturaleza, de la paz y del agua termal. Acá el hombre respira y se acuerde que el agua termal es un regalo de la naturaleza y no solamente un recurso a explotar comercialmente. Antes de todo es un espacio popular que pertenece a los termeños. Es el último espacio público en la ciudad donde uno puede disfrutar de un baño termal, sin costo, al aire libre y con un fondo de la naturaleza.
La Olla ha sobrevivido muchos años gracias a los esfuerzos y las donaciones de voluntarios. Ahora La Olla está en peligro grave. Los políticos, que ya han dañado otros espacios públicos (Llajta Sumaj, por ejemplo) en la ciudad, quieren encerrar y “urbanizar” la Olla. Su intención no-indicada es de controlar y cobrar la entrada. Eso sería una nueva restricción a la libertad de los termeños y de los turistas. La intendencia no ha hecho ninguna consulta con el público. Es tiempo que los termeños se levantan y manifiestan su oposición. ¡Tantos años el pueblo ha tenido que aguantar el ejercicio arbitrario del poder de la parte de las autoridades, primero desde el gobierno de Santiago y ahora desde la intendencia misma de Las Termas!

(La “Olla” (hotpot) of Las Termas De Rio Hondo* is known and appreciated by locals and visitors alike. It offers a unique combination of nature, life, peace and thermal water. Above all it is the last public space in Las Termas, where all can enjoy a free thermal bath in the open air in a natural setting. Now the Olla is under threat. The municipal authority intends to fence-off the area, “remodel” it and control and charge for admission. The Olla deserves consideration as a site of outstanding value in the patrimony of Argentina. Such consideration would guarantee its future protection and survival.
*Las Termas de Rio Hondo is a small town in the province of Santiago del Estero in the north-west of Argentina.)
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was the first instrument to incorporate the complete range of international human rights— including civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights as well as aspects of humanitarian law.
The legacy of the 20th century has left scars of destruction across the face of the earth and across multitudes of innocent victims. Isolation in a global society is not possible, we must all make the attempt help each other rise to a higher level of peace and a higher quality of life. Only a massive, concerted effort can change the direction in which we are now headed.
Hardship and suffering anywhere in the world should become a mandate for cooperative action. The price of neglect has become too high. We cannot leave a world behind for our children in which we fear for their future.
The time to act is now.
We, as academics and scientists, anxiously follow the recent cross-border incidents that have been taking place between Turkey and Syria. We may disagree about the particular dynamics of the turmoil in Syria; however, we strongly agree that any foreign intervention is not the answer.
We believe that military interference in Syria will contribute to the escalating tension between the countries in the region as well as among their international allies. Considering the disorder in Syria and the current fragile political balance in the region, we are tremendously concerned that these critical actions against Syria will lead to more casualties within the country and trigger further wars in the Middle East.
Wars kill people, destroy millions of lives and deteriorate living conditions of the poor and lower strata; but also demolish world’s cultural heritage, historical resources, and intellectual accumulation of thousands of years and leave permanent damage on public health and ecology. We witnessed, with sorrow, the most recent example of a cruel demolition of this sort during the occupation of Iraq.
Therefore, we object Turkey’s ongoing aggressive policy and any possible NATO operation in Syria. We are against any foreign operation that violates the Syrian people's right of self-determination. Herein, we call for world's attention to the wide-spread and strong anti-war sentiments of the people in Turkey, contrary to the deceitful representations of the international mainstream media.
In light of the recent media expressions that have resulted in bloodshed the following petition was created to call for an end to violation of all that is considered sacred by any community in the world.
The United States has been a country for 235 years and 209 of these years the country has spent at war. Sign this petition to call for an end to war.
War helps the US procure resources and create jobs but can destroy local economies and force other countries to adopt an American lifestyle which requires countries to support large scale industrial farming and production for export at the expense of small land owners and producers and social services. This leads to famine and debt enslavement.
When was the idea of GACD born and why it died?
The idea of GACD was born before World War II, within the League of Nations, which devoted much time and energy for disarmament, although many governments doubted that extensive disarmament could be achieved or was even desirable in this time. The inability of the League of Nations to prevent the Second World War led to its dissolution in 1946. For some time it seemed as if GACD was buried forever.
The new international organization, the UN shifted the emphasis from GACD to peacekeeping mission in the armed conflicts by control of certain types of weapons, especially nuclear and protection of human rights, and humanitarian aid, etc. Thus, the idea of GACD, per se, was in fact forgotten. The security was set as the cornerstone, which, as shown by the post-war history, cannot be guaranteed by any amount of weapons and their proliferation. The GACD was sacrificed to security. However, we know that security in the ocean of arms is a very fragile ship with constant leaks and the threat of explosions in general.
In the 60's, the idea of GACD was revived again as phoenix from the initiatives of the USSR. In the history of the United Nations, only in 1962, the World Congress for GACD was held in Moscow. Revival of the GACD idea was fleeting (1959-1962) and soon it went into oblivion due to its uselessness for industrial civilization. It was partly because of lack of understanding of its fundamental precepts and partly because of its intangible content. The GACD had no place in the UN.
Now the GACD idea is dead firmly. The concept of "general and complete disarmament" is not exists even in the modern world encyclopedias: Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Britannica, etc. In the last five decades, the GACD has been suppressed by ever greater oppression of the arms race, the cost of which, under the pretext of security, grows each year by an incredibly huge amount. In fact, the GACD has been quietly moribund by the military industrial civilization. The GACD is being undermined because it poses an easier and viable solution to prevent conflicts at the expense of the vast military-industry complex that depends heavily upon building the weapons of war. However, there is a silver lining for the GACD. The complete nuclear disarmament launched the United States and Russia in 2009 is a good sign for the revival of GACD, but still only an elusive dream. The proposed petition can turn it into reality.
The profound cause of helplessness and death of the GACD idea is military industry understanding of peace without recognizing the merits of GACD and completely excluding the idea of world peace. Their objectives are temporary peace supported by the threat of military force. Therefore, any talk about GACD is not needed. Military-industrial civilization lives on the old and false militarist slogan “If you want peace - prepare for war.” This slogan transforms peace into a time of temporary period of rest between the wars and in preparation for the new wars. It profits only the military-industrial complex eliminating the prospect of global peace and GACD. This principle subordinates peace to war, turning peace into a slave of war. So have been the periods of peace to this day. Since the military-industry civilization has no other perspective for peace to view from, the prospect of GACD died in it.
The universal peace depends upon GACD, whereas the universality and freedom of war eliminates the need and possibility of GACD.

We humans are closer to extinction that we all realize or want to acknowledge, we each have an obligation to preserve our species not destroy it, we owe it to ourselves and the generations to follow.
We may look different, sound different, and have different beliefs from one another but it does not negate the fact that we are all the same species and citizens of this world.
It is imperative that we work quickly and together despite any differences to preserve humanity.
I am asking all leaders and individuals to make a commitment to work towards uniting the people of this world.

The war in Afghanistan costs thousands of lives and trillions of dollars in defense of a corrupt and unpopular regime, one that is entirely dependent on Western troops and aid.
The war has inflamed Muslim opinion and failed to make Europe or the United States safer. Morality is undermined by recent NATO claims of no “confirmed” civilian casualties.
We all know that Super Junior and Girls' Generation have a wonderful relationship between them, but their fans, SONE and ELF not.
They fight if they don't win the award, when a Suju member or a Soshi member talk to each other, but the one who started the fanwar are the TROLLS. So please, can't we just stop the war and start our relationship new?
And anyways, all other people hear always bad things about out relationship and it is bad for us too, they don't want to join the fandom because they hear they fight a lot...
Don't you want to fight together? SM entertainment together? Super Generation together? You all know that Super Junior and Girl's Generation are the most successful k-pop group, but when we work together we will be unreachable.
The possession in public places of firearms and deadly weapons should be authorized only for those directly and primarily engaged in police, military, or security services, and even then, only to enforce the law under strict and clearly defined guidelines. Such measure does not in any way impair the privilege of responsible and qualified citizens to keep licensed firearms at home or sports clubs.
On 21 September 2010, Pro-Life Philippines Foundation, Inc., ABA Party-List and Ang Kapatiran Party petitioned the House of Representatives to enact the Citizen Protection Act (CPA) of 2010 – an Act to Regulate the Bearing of Firearms and Deadly Weapons in Public Places, Provide Penalties for its Violation, Provide General Amnesty and Financial Rewards for Voluntary Surrender and Decommissioning of the Same and Appropriate Funds Therefor, and for Other Purposes.
The CPA of 2010 is a practical measure that, among others, will:
1. Bring Down Gun-related Crimes: Statistics from the PNP show that from 2004 to 2008, 97.7 percent of gun-related crimes involved loose firearms, making the Philippines 10th in gun homicide rates worldwide. However, during the imposition of the five-month gun ban in the 2010 elections, the incidence of crime in the country fell by nearly 70 percent as compared to the same period in 2009, from 502,655 reported crimes to 157,674 cases nationwide.
2. Assist the PNP and Empower Communities in Peace-Keeping: This Act will help the police fight crime and violence on the streets, isolate and easily identify outlaws and violators of this Act, thus facilitating their arrest and confiscation of their weapons. Concerned citizens can blow their whistle without fear that they are pointing to the wrong person. Without this Act, it is difficult to distinguish criminals from plainclothesmen or from those with permit to carry, or from bodyguards. Sometimes, criminals pretend to be plainclothesmen, at other times plainclothesmen pretend to be criminals. It is about time to separate the grain from the chaff.
3. Keep in Jail Gun-bearing Criminals and Insurgents: Criminals and insurgents, who are caught with the illegal possession of firearm even on crimes in which bail is allowed and whose cases are being heard, are immediately liable for the violation of this Act, punishable by imprisonment of not less than 12 years and 1 day nor more than 20 years without parole and a fine of not less than P50,000 nor more than P300,000. What this Act seeks to implement are measures to control if not eradicate the presence of firearms in the streets and unauthorized areas or places. We cannot allow our country to have a proliferation of firearms, which are the main instruments of violence in the country and also the main instruments used by threat groups like the CPP-NPA, the renegade MNLF and MILF, and even the syndicates.
4. End Private Armies. Section 6 (Who may be assigned security personnel or bodyguards) of the Act provides: When circumstances warrant, including but not limited to threats to life and security, a private individual or public official, may, upon application, be assigned regular members of the PNP or the AFP or the National Bureau of Investigation, and as augmentation, duly licensed/authorized Protective Agents of Private Detective Agencies, to provide security, for a specified duration.
5. Put an End to Illegal Firearms: Section 10 (General Amnesty) of this Act provides for financial rewards to those who take advantage of the general amnesty whereby individuals may voluntarily surrender unlicensed firearms with no questions asked and without incurring any criminal or civil liability. Section 11 provides for decommissioning of surrendered and confiscated firearms and deadly weapons.
The CPA of 2010 brings with it a counterpart bill in the Senate, SB No. 129 or the Firearms Regulation Act of 2010, filed by Sen. Franklin Drilon.
In an open letter dated 30 January 2011, supporters of both bills - Mga Tagatulak ng Kapayapaan - beseeched President Benigno Aquino III to certify both bills as urgent for immediate approval by both House of Congress.
Among all Filipinos, only a little over 1% have registered firearms and a fraction of this with permits to carry.
Government's indifference to this measure is inconceivable.

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.
The Palestinian people need our unconditional support. If you visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_State, you can find many countries and people are ready to declare their support for a Palestinian State.
As the Afghan and U.S. government are in talks to sign the Strategic Partnership Agreement to extend the war to 2024, the level of violence in Afghanistan continues to increase.
A recent United Nations report suggests that the United States and NATO allies are outsourcing torture and human rights violations in Afghanistan. The report concludes that there is a continuing pattern and practice of “systematic” torture in spite of repeated efforts at reform. (UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, October 2011)
Current US policy violates the Leahy Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and Defense Appropriations Act (Sec. 563, P.L. 106-429 and Sec. 8092, P.L. 106-259, 2001).
The MINUSTAH, well known as The United Nations Stabilisation Mission In Haiti, has been in operation since 2004. A year of political crisis, violence and corruption, led to the resignation of the President Jean Bertrand Aristide. But now they are seen like a threat to the human rights, and also to the Haitian People.
"Haiti is in great danger because among others of Cholera, of the poverty the marginalization and of the exploitation of its people " said the Nobel Peace Argentin Adolfo Pérez Esquivel in an interview with the Latino channel TeleSur.
Numerous incidents of rape and other forms of violence have been reported by victims of MINUSTAH... from the 16 years old girl in 2006 to the Haitian teenager (male) in 2011.
Three Nobel Peace, led by the Nobel Adolfo Pérez Esquivel from Argentine, hundreds of NGOs, legislators and personalities of more than forty countries sent to the Secretary General a letter released yesterday in which they requested the withdrawal of international troops of Haiti.
Join the fight if you believe in Peace and want to change the actual situation of Haiti.
The September 22 testimony of Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, may well “pave the way… to new unilateral military actions inside Pakistan,” including more drone strikes and, “even cross border raids into Pakistan to root out insurgents from their havens.” (New York Times, September 22-23, 2011)
After Mullen’s testimony, the Heritage Foundation immediately called for aggressive military and diplomatic escalation. (Christian Science Monitor, September 26, 2011) House Republicans are pushing an open-ended authorization for war against any insurgents anywhere in the world “associated” with the Taliban or Al Qaeda.
Enough is enough. Escalation in Pakistan is not in the national security interest of the United States. Already our drone attacks have provoked two terrorist near misses against American civilians, one at the Detroit airport on Christmas Day 2009 and another at Times Square on May 1, 2010. It is not in the economic interest of the United States; we cannot afford another trillion-dollar war. It is not in the moral interest of the United States; the drone attacks kill innocent people and inflame millions of Pakistanis against America.
The military pursuit of terrorist sanctuaries, first in Iraq and then in Afghanistan, has left behind thousands dead and wounded and only pushed the sanctuaries to new locations. Each escalation begets another. Besides Pakistan, our government is pursuing undeclared air wars against terrorist cells with drone attacks in Somalia and Yemen. (Washington Post, September 20, 2011)
It makes no sense to escalate attacks against the Pakistan sanctuaries of the Afghan Taliban while the US ends its combat role, gradually withdraws from Afghanistan, and supports a power-sharing arrangement with all parties. It is irrational to bomb the Taliban’s sanctuaries while inviting them to the peace table. A genuine diplomatic settlement requires a phased ending of the drone attacks as US troops phase out their role in Afghanistan.
Sending in ground troops backed by air power is as foolish as President Nixon’s 1970 invasion of Cambodia allegedly to wipe out Vietcong sanctuaries.
NUS must support ending the occupation of Palestine.
26. Stop Neo-Nazis
Killings, bombing, and terror in Norway, Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia, Chechnya, Latin America, Spain, Japan, as well as government-sponsored terrorism in Syria, Libya, Yemen, and some other parts of the world should be enough to tell the whole humanity that something should be done.
Terrorism (especially government-sponsored terrorism) and Extremism are on the rise. It is high time we took action against terror, oppression, instability, and brutality.
The following petition is an imploration on behalf of the Hall Brothers; Joseph Hall 13874-018; David Hall 13816-018; and Cleophas Hall 43117-019 who are currently serving out sentences imposed in 1992, on charges of Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of cocaine base; and Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a detectable amount of cocaine powder.
The Hall Brothers have been incarcerated for approximately nineteen (19) years and during such time they have completed a number of rehabilitative programs, self-improvement programs and worked as facilitators in many of the programs they themselves completed. The Hall Brothers has work for UNICOR Federal Prison Industries, Inc., for over thirteen (13) years. Not only have they worked to improve their own lives, but they have worked untiringly and determinedly to assist many other inmates to set goals for themselves and work toward accomplishing their goals as well as helping others to build and re-build family ties. Via a web site hosted by a dear friend, the Hall Brothers work to expose the many talented and gifted inmates to society in hope of building a bridge that would enable those incarcerated to find and take advantage of the help available upon reentry back into the mainstream of society as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
Notwithstanding, all that they do to help others, they are unable to help themselves. Because of incident reports they received for supposedly participating in a riot that took place October 25, 1995, over fifteen (15) years ago at FCI Mariana in Mariana Florida, the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) insist on keeping a Public Safety Factor; in their records that is preventing the Hall Brothers from being able to take advantage of a lower custody level, such as low facility and Camp. The Hall Brothers have points low enough to go to a low or camp but can't because of the Public Safety Factor being large against them. Please we need your support by signing this petition and contacting the Region--Bureau of Prisons and asking them to please remove the Public Safety Factor and allow the Hall Brothers the opportunity move on to a lower custody level.
2011 is the year of revolutions. The year of the people. The world is uniting against oppression. South Sudan got their independence and other countries are getting rid of their dictators this year.
Now more than ever, is the perfect time to get rid of the dictator Meles Zenawi and grant true independence and freedom for the Ogaden. We cannot let this year pass us without having Justice for the Ogaden region. Let us free the Ogaden in 2011 too.
From January 9-15 2011, people from South Sudan voted on whether they should break away from Sudan and declare independence. On 30 January 2011, the results had shown that 98.83% of the population had voted for independence from Sudan. So they were granted independence.
It is time to let the people of Ogaden vote and decide if they want to break away from Ethiopia and declare independence too.The people of the Ogaden deserve to decide and vote peacefully for their freedom and true independence. Sign this petition if you think a referendum on independence for the Ogaden should be scheduled to be held sometime in 2011 too.

Withdrawal from The European Union is an option that must be offered to the people of Britain.
The United States cannot afford a deepening quagmire in Libya. We call on President Obama to seek authorization from the U.S. Congress for his Libyan bombing campaign, including a mission statement limited to protecting Libyan civilians, a viable diplomatic strategy, an exact cost projection, and a timeline for the rapid withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops before the war becomes another quagmire.
