Petition to WI Governor to Pardon Brendan Dassey and Steven Avery

  Brendan Dassey was 16 when he gave an unreliable, uncorroborated and inconsistent set of statements about a crime, details of which were provided to him by those interviewing him. His youth and cognitive and social limitations made him extremely sensitive to suggestibility, making his confession a text book example of a false coerced confession.   Steven Avery, already proven to have been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a rape case, had a civil suit of $36 million for his wrongful con

The UN to intervene on the chaos in zimbabwe

The purpose of this Petition is to request that the United Nations or SADAC intervene into the chaos currently occurring in Zimbabwe. We can all clearly see that human rights are being violated and there are no fair Elections taking place. We want transparency and the figures are not making sense at all. We need individuals or organisations other than the current Zimbabwean government to clear up this mess because they are evidently not taking any form of control to counteract the problems that

Defend Gay Conversion Therapy

We, the undersigned, consider that Theresa May's proposed ban on offering therapy, healing or prayer for people wishing to be free of same-sex attraction is an attack on freedom of speech, on freedom of choice, on freedom of association, and inasmuch as Christianity may form the backdrop to a desire to be free from same-sex desires, or may constitute an element of the healing process offered, on religious freedom. We call upon Members of Parliament to reject this attempt to to criminalise ideas.

Justice for the 'Dog with no Name'

If you love animals – or are simply a decent, compassionate human being – please add your name to our petition to demand justice for the dog that starved to death at the end of a chain, in plain sight of its uncaring owner. This was not a stray or abandoned animal. It was kept like this on the owners’ property, literally withering away to skin and bone in front of their eyes. They could have brought it to the SPCA – or at the very least turned it loose so it could try to scavenge some scraps fr

Tämän päivän kovinta valuuttaa ovat yhteisöllisyys, tarinat ja käsityöläisyys ja sitä kautta syntynyt kulttuurillinen arvo - niitä kaikkia Suvilahden skeittiparkissa on huomattavia määriä suhte

Adult Satoshi in Pokémon Anime

We Ask gently the staff of the pokemon anime to develop Ash's(Satoshi) in a worthy way: no more reboots, we would like to see Satoshi as an adult (it is preferable to avoid to specify the years of the timeskip, in order to not generate more mistakes with the series in which there was shown an effective temporal ongoing) and that he could reach his goal to be a Pokemon Master.

Decriminalize possession of Psilocybin Mushrooms

Europe's strongest hallucinogenic mushroom, 'Liberty cap', are thriving in Denmark. The mushroom contains the psychoactive compound called psilocybin - a so-called psychedelic substance - which recent research indicates has a huge potential for treating depression, as well as helping people out of their nicotine and alcohol dependence. It stands proud out there, swaying in the Danish mole, in the woods and on open plains. The fungus is the strongest of its kind in Europe. And in these autumn da
