FQRC SAFE TURN

FQRC SAFE TURN PLEASE MAKE IT SAFE FOR US TO TURN INTO OUR STREET We, the undersigned, would like NZTA to make it safe for residents to turn right when traveling north ON SH17 into Foley Quarry Road. Residents are forced to wait at the centre line, and at the top of a blind rise, to turn right. Speed limits have just gone from 80km/h to 100km/h. We request that a flush median be created at the centre of the road to make it safe to wait until it is safe to turn right.

National Orchestra of Belgium

Petition to support the continued existence of the National Orchestra of Belgium   As the result of politics, our National Orchestra is threatened with extinction in the near future. In fact, a scheme from Minister Reynders cabinet aims at the absorption of the National Orchestra of Belgium by the Royal Opera Theatre “La Monnaie” to strengthen its programming.   We feel however, that backed by a long tradition of nearly eighty years, the NOB fulfils its cultural mission very well, both by the se

Stop the killing of straycats in the city of Bruges, Belgium!

Straycats are being killed because of ‘huntinglaws’ in the shelter of Bruges. Non profit organisation Kat zoekt thuis (‘Cat looking for a home’) has been neutering starycats for years in Bruges, at their own expense. Normally, this is at the responsibility and costs of the city counsel. In the past, we have had numerous contacts with the city counsel to improve the straycat-policy. Now, sadly, the city of Bruges is placing huntinglaws above animal welfare. Feral straycats are not neutered and r

NO to Violence in SA… it must STOP today.

A referendum on ending apartheid was held in South Africa on 17 March 1992. The referendum was limited to White voters only, who were asked whether or not they supported the negotiated reforms begun by State President F. W. de Klerk two years earlier, in which he proposed to END the apartheid system that had been implemented since 1948. The result of the election was a large victory for the "Yes" side, which ultimately resulted in apartheid being lifted. General elections were held in South A

Stop Testing on Monkeys

I ask that the Regents immediately take action to stop the unethical and scientifically unnecessary use of nonhuman primates in experiments at University of California campuses and laboratories. Animal experimentation fails to hold the promise of new technologies, including nanotechnology, microfluidic methods, stem cell research and personalized medicine; or to yield the comprehensive results of well-established research protocols such as clinical and epidemiological studies.  Ethically, animal

Ours is the fury: D&D bring back Stannis Baratheon

The final episode of Game of Thrones season 5 has put in jeopardy the life of one Stannis of the House Baratheon, rightful King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. This Petition asks that the writers of Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B Weiss, keep Stannis Baratheon alive for Season 6 of the show. It was infuriating to see a beloved character brought so low and apparently killed off in a brutal yet surprisingly boring way, as the ending be

Raising the drinking age to 20 years of age.

Help me help make the community we live in today become a much more safer environment by raising the drinking age up to 20 years of age. It is time for us to make a stand and make the right choices by creating a more stable community for our teenagers. I believe this will only be successful if we all join in together and stop the alcohol harm in New Zealand and the damage that it is causing.    If you agree with raising the drinking age from 18 up to 20 years of age please sign below. Thank you.

Raising the drinking age back to 20.

I’m currently studying about Alcohol Harm in New Zealand and possible law changes. Help raise the drinking age back to 20 because the issue right now is that young teenagers have too much easy access to alcohol while being under-age. I believe there are not many mature 18 year olds that know their limit, it also causes a lot of violence in families and accidents due to alcohol. I can see that the current drinking age is a problem. To me as a student I believe that raising the drinking age would

Stop Skerries Quarry Being Turned Into a Landfill Site

In skerries there is a disused Quarry. It has become a huge beautiful natural habitat for flora and fauna. Hidden in this beautiful place there is Irish hares, song thrushes and rare perigrine falcons.  There is a company Roadstone who have lodged an application to the authorities to turn the quarry into a landfill site (dumping ground). If this goes ahead the natural habitat for animals and the beauty of the quarry will be lost forever. I dont want to see this happn.  If this goes ahead it will
