Save the Norwegian Institute at Athens!

(English version - scroll down for Norwegian) Petition: Save the Norwegian Institute at Athens! The Norwegian Institute at Athens has for the past three decades been of great importance for the teaching, research, publishing, and dissemination of the culture, history, archaeology, and languages of the Eastern Mediterranean.

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

SAVE SUVILAHTI DIY!

(English text below) Suvilahden skeittiparkki on purku-uhan alla Kalasataman alueen uudistuksessa ja tämä on ehdottomasti estettävä!   Suvilahti DIYn kaltaiset yhteisöllisesti rakennetut vapaat toimintaympäristöt tekevät kaupungista huomattavasti geneeristä ympäristöä kiinnostavamman ja valovoimaisemman. 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. Giving the Pokemon Master title doesn't necessarly mean to take it away from the anime and to conclude it. For us the sto

The white moose in Sweden is saved - no more names necessary on this petition

The police have decided to allow hunting on the world-famous white moose found in the forests between Charlottenberg and Gunnarskog in Sweden. The reason is an incident with a woman and two dogs. We, who sign this petition want the decision to be removed and that the white moose may live a long life in his forest in western Värmland. A wild animal should not be punished with death because it responds in accordance with its natural instincts.   NOTE! Sign the petition here on the right side. You

Free Winston.

We want to free Winston and stop the seizure and killing of family pets without proof.

(There is a witness who woke up to the commotion happening inside our side gate) This person has made a complaint and now the council has fined my uncle over $1500 in fines and declared the dog dangerous. When asked for proof they got told that MRC l
