  • End oppressive Mandatory dress code and exile murderous government in IRAN #MahsaAmini
    Thousands of innocent lives have been massacred for simply speaking and having an opinion. In what has been called "an act of violence unprecedented in Iranian history" the Iranian government summarily, extrajudicially, and secretly executed thousands of political prisoners held in Iranian jails in the summer of 1988. Values of tolerance, equality and respect can help reduce friction within society. Putting human rights ideas into practice can helps us create the kind of society we want to live in. In recent decades, there has been a tremendous growth in how we think about and apply human rights ideas. This has had many positive results - knowledge about human rights can empower individuals and offer solutions for specific problems. Human rights are an important part of how people interact with others at all levels in society - in the family, the community, schools, the workplace, in politics and in international relations. It is vital therefore that people everywhere should strive to understand what human rights are. When people better understand human rights, it is easier for them to promote justice and the well-being of society. A person's human rights cannot be taken away. In its final Article, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that no State, group or person '[has] any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein'. Over the past 10 days, the Iranian regime has responded to demonstrations with deadly force, censored unfavourable media narratives, prosecuted those who spread ‘rumours’ about the protests, and hindered people’s access to vital information online. Blocking social media platforms and disrupting internet and mobile service during times of social unrest is a classic authoritarian tactic. In its desperate bid to retain power, this undemocratic regime clearly has no compunction about denying its citizens their fundamental liberties and their very lives. “We condemn, in the strongest terms, the Iranian regime’s escalating repression of its people, and we call on other governments to stand with these courageous protesters and hold Iranian officials to account for their abuses. If the cause of democracy and human rights is to prevail in Iran, democratic countries and organizations around the world must support Iranians in their quest for freedom from a tyrannical theocracy. Instead of meeting the needs of its own people, the Iranian regime has chosen to spend enormous amounts of its money and resources to support the Assad regime [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] as well as its militant proxies around the world, and to pursue the development of weapons of mass destruction,” Sherman added. Instead of investing in its people, Iran continues to restrain their vast potential through censorship, oppression and severe limitations on their social, political and even academic freedom. Defending human rights activists has been called "one of the riskiest jobs in Iran",[180] and harassment and imprisonment of human rights lawyers is an effective way of intimidating dissidents. As of June 2020, nine human rights attorneys have been arrested in Iran since 2018, and at least five of them are still in prison, according to the Center for Human Rights in Iran.[181] As of 2018, several prominent human rights lawyers were imprisoned. Attorney Mohammad Najafi faced "national-security charges—and potentially years in prison"—for publicly accusing the IRI government of "covered up the true cause of the jailhouse death of his client, a young protester involved in the recent economic demonstrations, according to the Center for Human Rights in Iran. Abdolfattah Soltani, who won the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award, in 2009, served time in prion in 2005 and 2009 and was sentenced to 18-year prison sentence in 2012 "for talking to the press about his clients’ cases and co-founding the Defenders of Human Rights Centre.

  • Save the Ark Aid Street Mission & First Baptist Church
    All of this because of one anonymous complaint. For those who may not belong to a faith community but are concerned about what they see on our streets, on Richmond Row, in our downtown core right now, we implore you to show your support. We will have a catastrophe this winter if churches are not allowed to partner with the Ark or other service providers to welcome people in out of the cold, to assemble, to be fed, to use a washroom, to get showered. We will fight this. We are calling on people of London; people of faith, people of good will, people of no faith, people who care about the plight of the unhoused across the city to join us in this fight. We cannot address the serious crises we are in in the city with homelessness if we do not work together.

  • Reduce traffic in Kings School Al Barsha
    It is taking a toll on these kids – it is very stressful for them to be waiting in a car that long and even more so when they arrive late every day. In addition, some kids get car sick and end up vomiting – not the best way to start their education every day. We have requested the school to increase this drop off/pickup window but they replied that it was not possible due to a lack of resources. We expect the school to allocate the necessary resources to solve this issue.

  • Allow Shoulders At FKMS
    Students (specifically girls) are constantly getting sexualized no matter what we do. We cannot wear certain things as it's "distracting", though the only people it's really distracting are teachers, which is completely inappropriate.

  • מצילים את שבט צופי הים חיפה!
    השבט הוקם בשנת 1923 ועד היום הוא פועל בחינוך ימי ופיתוח הנוער. כיום, השבט מונה בסביבות ה200 חניכים ומדריכים. השבט הוא מקום פעילותם העיקרי של כל הילדים, שם הם מתעצבים, מפתחים ראיית עולם וערכים היחודיים להם, וכשמגיעים לכיתה י' הם זוכים להעביר את זה הלאה לילדים הצעירים יותר. זה המקום שלהם לשתף, להכיר ולהתחבר לילדים בגילם מכל העיר. בזמנם הפנוי, הם מפליגים, עוברים פעולות, ובאים לעבוד וללמוד על הסירות והים. אם השבט יסגר ולא יהיה לו מקום חדש הילדים יאבדו את מקום פעילותם! -שכב״ג וחניכי צופי הים חיפה

  • 🇰🇪 Uber & Bolt: Better pay for drivers in Kenya
    It's not fair for the drivers to absorb the cost of the petrol increase. The companies should pay drivers more, so they can pay for the petrol increase. Drivers pay needs to reflect current petrol prices! If you agree, sign the petition, and share it everywhere, to put pressure on Uber, Bolt and Little to pay their drivers better!

  • Excel London: Provide access to neurodiverse visitors
    I suffer with a sensory processing disorder and anxiety disorder which means I am very limited in terms of places I can go. Loud noises and sudden lights are particularly troublesome for me and when they happen, I feel an extremely uncomfortable feeling throughout my body. Baking is one of the only things that is therapeutic to me and is something I am very passionate about. It is therefore a real shame that a lack of access requirements means that I am left with no choice but not to go to an event that centres around one of the only things I feel happy and calm doing. I know that there are many others in a similar position to me and will feel equally frustrated.
