• 🇿🇦 Stop dumping sewage in Vaal Dam!
    Raw sewage is polluting one of the most important water sources in South Africa, as a result of failing sewerage systems in neighbouring municipalities. This problem affects everyone who drinks water supplied from the Vaal Dam, as well as Bloemhof Dam and along the Vaal and Orange river system, as well as our precious ecosystem. Please sign and share this petition, to create a wave of outrage and help stop the sewage dumping in our drinking water!

  • Investigate K9 country club
    I placed my 6 month old German shepherd puppy into a board and train program for protection training at k9country club. I placed a 53 lb furry bundle of a healthy pup into a program which was suppose to last 3 to 4 weeks max but ended up lasting 6 weeks, 3 of these weeks were spent trying to get her home. Besides not allowing access to my dog the first month, they demanded payment before I could even lay eyes on her. What happened in the 6 weeks she was there I can only imagine was spent in constant fear and hunger, and pain from non treated infections contracted at the facility during her stay. She came home with wounds on her neck and nose from what I imagine was misuse of negative reinforcement such as a prong collar or a shock collar. The owner refuses to give me a complete set of vet records as of Aug 28, 2022. She left this facility on July 25, 2022. Instead the owner has gone after me with a cease and desist order instead of contacting me to give explanations or to answer any questions I have. His constant use of threats to silence witnesses and keep his ex employees from revealing the truth about working there and what they saw or heard should be looked into. No inspections have been recorded since his opening over 6 yrs ago. I am so angry and disappointed with the lack if care given to my puppy. I'm not the only horror story to come out of there, google yelp, fb, they are filled with horror stories coming out of k9 country club.

  • Stop Clearcutting, Slash Burns and Pesticide Sprays Near Drinking Water Sources on the Oregon Coast
    WHEREAS, there is a growing water shortage, especially in the summers, caused by climate change, increased demand and accelerated forest clearcutting; WHEREAS, water quality has declined, and in some areas, can require an unsafe amount of chemical additives and treatments to meet minimum Oregon Health Authority standards; WHEREAS, buffer zones are inadequate to address the fact that the air we breathe and the water we drink are compromised by slash burning and pesticide spraying; WHEREAS, government agencies have failed to adequately protect community watersheds and air quality, even in the face of unprecedented climate change and industrial forest clearcutting; ACCORDINGLY, Petitioners want accountability for the above, want no more logging operations and no more pesticide use in drinking watersheds across all land ownership in the North Oregon Coast, and want an end to pesticide applications near where people live and recreate. FURTHERMORE, Petitioners seek independent health studies and unbiased analyses of the water people in the area drink and the air everyone breathes.

  • Leyton Parks Need Dedicated Dog Areas!
    Leyton is a growing neighbourhood with a large dog population. Since the pandemic, there's been a spike in pets ownership (3.2M according to BBC) in the UK, and it was no different in Leyton. However, one of the key issues of the area is the complete absence of parks where dogs are allowed to get in or freely exercise. Owners are faced with a false choice between getting ÂŁ80 fines or not walking their dogs in parks at all. One park specifically, Abbotts Park, has spontaneously become a destination for dozens of pet owners to exercise their dogs. Everyday, dozens of dogs and members of the community meet every morning for a healthy and much needed socialisation. As this map shows (https://thelondog.com/discovering-london-dog-exercise-areas/), there is no local park with dog dedicated areas in Leyton, and all the few existing local parks even prohibit their entrance. There's virtually no legal space to walk or freely exercise the thousands of dogs that live in the neighbourhood. With little to no choice, residents often risk and are subjected to fines for using local parks for their daily walks with their pets. This issue tends to massively increase seeing the numerous new developments Waltham Forest approved to be built in the neighbourhood. AFTER SIGNING THIS PETITION, MAKE SURE TO SEND AN EMAIL DIRECTLY TO DECISION MAKERS!! FOLLOW THIS LINK AND SHARE WIDELY: https://actions.sumofus.org/a/leyton-parks-need-dedicated-dog-areas

  • No Hell's Pizza in Huapai village carpark
    Hell's Pizza suddenly relocated to a site in the Huapai Village carpark on 9 May 2022. They moved in with a huge military looking truck, a shipping container, concrete-filled steel drums onto a public carpark site, chopping branches off heritage trees, parking on the grass, with gas bottles perched precariously and rubbish stored around the truck. No one in the community had forewarning - except the landlord- despite the business blocking light and access to the $2 Shop, footpath, garden and Kumeu Arts sign. The installation takes up carparks, public and private access and disadvantages local shoppers and shop keepers. There are concerns about hygiene and community amenity. Hell's Pizza does not have consent for this activity which is outside its lease area and partly on public land. The Council has served notice on Hell's Pizza and they must apply for Resource Consent. We believe the public should have a say on this consent and to express our opposition, requesting the application be declined.

  • MINIMUM WAGE FOR COMPULSORY NURSING PLACEMENTS
    Practical clinical placements are crucial for student Nurses' hands-on experience. Placement blocks of up to 8 weeks, twice per year make it extremely challenging to stay employed and any accrued annual leave runs out. Immunizations, uniforms, travel and parking are additional costs required. There is no incentive, and nothing but financial sacrifices to meet the requirements to obtain a Nursing degree. Recruiting more nurses is critical for improving our health system, but if people cannot afford to meet the requirements to become skilled professionals, the cycle of decline will continue. I am seeking changes of minimum wage for compulsory placement hours.

  • Fund Just and Equitable Transition for AZ Coal-Impacted Communities NOW
    Utilities have a corporate, moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that land and natural resources they have impacted are fully restored and must fulfill their corporate decommissioning and remediation commitments. A Just and Equitable Transition away from fossil fuels must include access to running water, telecommunications, and electricity infrastructure for impacted community members. Finally. The ACC should immediately approve any Just and Equitable Transition agreement brokered between utility owners and affected communities, including the agreement negotiated between the Navajo Nation and Arizona Public Service Company (APS). The Commission should also direct Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to immediately broker a commensurate agreement and file it for the Commission’s review and approval as part of the utility’s pending rate case. At a minimum, such agreements must include sizable financial support for impacted communities, supported by both the utility and its ratepayers.

  • SEKGOPO COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE IN NEED OF A 24/7 OPERATING POLICE STATION AND CLINIC
    The Sekgopo community is a big area which has a population that amounts to +_60 000 households. The local clinic is small and caters the community between 6H30 am to 16H00 pm and does not operate during the night. In case of emergency needs arising during the night, the community members suffer to get medical help. Pregnant women ready for labour suffer to get medical attention during night as they must stand outside the gates to call an ambulance and cannot access the clinic after 16:00 pm. The crime rate is high, members of the community are getting slaughtered almost every weekend and the police take hours before reaching the community due to the fact that the Police Satellite operates from 08:00 am to 16:00 pm with only one officer available and it does not open during weekends and holidays.
