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

In Support of Academic Freedom of Expression and Critical Thought

We believe in upholding the democratic values of freedom of speech, thought, and expression. We view Academic freedom of expression in universities as paramount to the process of higher education and empirically-grounded research. The suppression of opposing views stifles critical thought and debate, which are incredibly important parts of a university education and should be promoted and encouraged in both students and staff. We strongly oppose the idea that Academic Freedom should only apply

Instalment of an enclosed dog park in Upper Hutt

As a Upper Hutt resident I would like to get the council to put in an enclosed dog exercise area. Currently I have to travel to Plimmerton or Wellington to access one.   An enclosed dog exercise area would be a great space to socialise dogs and exercise them off leash safely.

STORMONT! END the violation of our Human rights NOW! Face masks should NEVER BE MANDATORY!!!

The signatories on this petition are calling for an end to the dictatorship of the Stormont executive and public health officials who are infringing our inalienable human rights as set out in the Human rights act 1998. The Northern Ireland Act 1998 sets out the legislative competence of the Northern Ireland Assembly and states that the Assembly may not legislate in a manner that conflicts with the European convention on Human rights. The Act places a DUTY on public bodies not to act in contraven

Stop LGBTQ+ Hate Crimes!

Imagine feeling unsafe in the area that you live in, why? Because people don't accept who you do and don't love. For example: a 23-year-old man thought he would never see again when he was attacked with pepper spray in a suspected homophobic assault in London, and two gay men were targeted and attacked in Austin, Texas. You can't choose who you're attracted to, and just going to Pride parades can turn bad such as when three years ago, 50-year-old Tommy Barwick was attacked after London's Pride p

New Zealand Flower Farmers deserve fairer treatment and consideration. Support contactless deliveries for cut flowers through level 3 and 4 Delta lockdown.

Our local cut flower growing industry is sinking fast! From small family farms to larger operations, all have been forced to destroy a heartbreaking amount of their beautiful blooms. Level 4 Delta has left the cut flower farming community at a breaking point - financially, physically and emotionally - even though there are many ways to distribute their flowers safely.   Listen to Ella Stewarts report on our industry with Aila and Christy and the way this has affected their production and a possi

We do NOT want Nelson Council to proceed with the planned new library

We do NOT want the Nelson Council to proceed with the planned new library. We do NOT want or need a new library. And we do NOT want the rates rise associated with this planned new library, or any large rates rises. We demand that the Council focus spending on the current needs in Nelson. We are facing climate change with increasingly violent storms, more and bigger wild-fires, increasingly worse flooding; the real possibility according to the latest scientists of Covid getting into NZ; we have t

The People V HM Government for False Advertising surrounding Covid19

On the 8th February, I will be launching a Group Litigation Order (GLO) against the UK Government for False Advertising surrounding the Covid19 campaigns. Until people start being held accountable, this will never end. Although I only need 18 signatures to file this order, I believe it will strengthen the case for the Judge to see how many people are backing this fight. Since March 2020, the UK Government have spent billions of pounds of tax payers money on illegal advertising surrounding Covid1
