Let butchers open during the lockdown

Many people including myself buy their meat at independent butchers rather than the supermarket. Now the butchers have been told they have to close as they are 'non-essential'.  We, the signers of this petition, disagree. It is unfair and makes no sense. A dairy and a greengrocer can open but a butcher next door cannot. Supermarkets shouldn't be given a monopoly on the sale of meat.

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

SAY NO TO MASK FOR KIDS AT SCHOOL!!!

Dear Sir, Madam, We, parents of kids, living in Cyprus would like to express our disagreement about mandatory masks. We DO refuse our children to wear the mask because:•    There has never been a proof of mask to work. There were many proves that masks don't work including respirators, therefore you have no right to put the health of our children at risk by your thoughts of what you think is right!

Teachers! Please protect children by opposing the introduction of masks in primary schools.

In an e-newsletter circulated to INTO members on 19/10/21, the top article claimed that "The INTO is calling for..." the upscaling of a number of public-health measures, including: "An urgent review of the age restriction on the use of face coverings" and "The commencement of the school's pilot scheme for antigen testing, recommended in April 2021." We are a group of teachers who believe that the above claim is untrue and that it was made without any meaningful consultation of INTO members who p

Kia Ora, I am a resident of Hawkes Bay and it has been my home for close to 6 years while I work for the Hawkes Bay District Health Board as a Procurement Specialist.
