Subject: Save the Internet -- Support Net Neutrality

Dear Friend,

Did you know that powerful cable and phone companies want to censor the information we can get over the internet...and slow down or block web content that they don't agree with? If you go to the URL below you can learn about the principle of "Net Neutrality" and why it's important that we speak up now.

Please have a look and take action.

Sentenced to death: Afghan who dared to read about women's rights

A young man, a student of journalism, is sentenced to death by an Islamic court for downloading a report from the internet. The sentence is then upheld by the country's rulers. This is Afghanistan – not in Taliban times but six years after "liberation" and under the democratic rule of the West's ally Hamid Karzai. The fate of Sayed Pervez Kambaksh has led to domestic and international protests, and deepening concern about erosion of civil liberties in Afghanistan. He was accused of blasphemy after he downloaded a report from a Farsi website which stated that Muslim fundamentalists who claimed the Koran justified the oppression of women had misrepresented the views of the prophet Mohamed.

There is no reason for this petition to have such low number of signatures (only 432), when the goal is 10.000.
Let's show we care, let's show we cannot aprove the inhumane treatment China and Vietnam apply to the moon bears.
Please, sign this petition and forward to as many as possible.

My dear friends,
I can't understand, we are over 8 million people on this site.
Then how important issues like this - the fate of moon bears - have a few signatures - mine and yours and other's few who really care.
I see the "click to donate" which is always on the screen (so very available), still, for every cause I see hundreds, in the best cases thousands of clicks...from 8 milions people...

I'm totally dissapointed.

Let's do something at least with these petitions.

Thank you, my friends, for all you're doing.

Same as ever,

candidates eliminated from national television debates
7 years ago
We must not allow weapons maker GE (parent of NBC), corporate media (ABC/Disney, CNN, The Des Moines Register) or the insurance industry (AARP) to choose the next President of the United States. Each of these corporations has chosen to eliminate candidates from national television debates to protect their interests and limit our choices. By 'blacking out' dissenting opinion from the debates they are deliberately interfering with our Constitutional voting rights.

life before death, not for poor people
7 years ago

life before death, not for poor people 12:31 PM
We are a HIV positive same sex couple living in Canada because our marriage is legal in Canada - one of us suffers from schizophrenia as well.

We both suffer from poverty. At the moment we are in a life and death struggle with our landlord - he feels we should build and renovate his property and pay him for that priviledge.

We are trying to establish an art gallery/coffee house - space, and we live illegally in the back, our rent is 1,700$ per month plus....yes we are mad we must be.

The area that we live in is not that far from the US border - the home prices are, on average $300 000 for a modest two bedroom home - if you can find it.
statistics Canada has just given our area a 0% vacancy rate. There are people sleeping in Vans and cars, some even in the bush to avoid the one faith-based shelter here. A faith-based shelter that is supported by the government, I might add.

It seems that without money, and lots of it, you are doomed to an existence of misery and hardship. I'm reminded of a book written by George Orwell, i forget the title, but it was the one where he predicted that the government would sponsor lotteries wherin the winners would gain a sense of freedom and this would placate the masses there is only 1 , 2, or 3 winners per draw and sometimes none.

It is very odd that we should have to live an entire lifetime most likely doing something we really don't enjoy until we are 65, and possibly near death. I don't know if it has always been as it is - or if we have created a society of torture. It astounds me sometimes when I drive around town and I see the varying degrees of wealth - on the one hand you have someone living in a trailer with barely a door attached and a few miles away you have a huge mansion on several acres of land. And it would make you wonder how this sort of polarization can even exist in a fair society.

In any case, we publish the urban survivor, and we run a website,, we need creative people to help us build a non-partisan,ecumenical organization that will actually do something other than pay lip service and administrator's salaries.

We are determined to do this. In 2005 I was admitted to a local hospital with a ruptured appendix. The doctors kept asking us if we were HIV positive, at the time we did not know. We were asked if we wanted to be tested and we said no. They tested us anyway but that's another story.

As I was recoving in ICU, the nurse said to me that my "life was a sin and abomination to God" and she proceeded to prostelytize and minister to me to a point that I actually was agreeing to her. You see they had to know that we were gay because my partner suffers from schizophrenia and I didn't want him to leave the hospital alone and I was too sick to make up a grand story. We/I did lodge a complaint with the human rights tribunal. It is online to this day.

During this ordeal we/i approached many of the organizations that i thought would be able to help us as the health authority had retained a high-priced law firm to defend this nurse and themselves. In this quest we found most organizations to be self-indulgent in their own agendas if not over-extended and a lot of them having faith-based agendas which would have contradicted their biblical beliefs had they assisted us, we are the Urban Survivor, we are at

We would also publically like to thank Lonnie Gordon for her offer of support. Ms. Gordon is a successful Black American singer/dancer/artist

but we need all the help we can get, thankyou for your time...

Help hold contractors accountable
7 years ago
Jamie Leigh Jones was working in Iraq for a subsidiary of Halliburton when she was drugged and brutally gang-raped by several coworkers.

For the last two years, she's been asking the US government to hold the perpetrators accountable, but the men who raped her may never be brought to justice because Halliburton and other contractors in Iraq aren't subject to US or Iraqi laws.

I just signed a petition urging Congress to investigate the rape of Jamie Leigh Jones, hold those involved accountable, and bring US contractors under the jurisdiction of US law. Can you join me at the link below?

emergency petition!!
7 years ago


I just signed an emergency petition trying to  save the crucial climate change talks in Bali, Indonesia right now by telling the US, Canada and Japan to stop blocking an agreement. You can sign it here:

Almost all countries have agreed to cut rich country carbon emissions by 2020--which scientists say is crucial to stop catastrophic global warming, and will also help bring China and the developing world onboard. But with just 24 hours left in the conference, the US and its close allies Canada and Japan have rejected any mention of such cuts.

We can't let three governments hold the world hostage and block agreement on this desperate issue.

There's still 24 hours left to turn this around -  click below to sign the petition - it will be delivered direct to summit delegates, through stunts and in media advertisements, so our voices will actually be heard. But we need a lot of us, fast, to join in if we're going to make a difference. Just click on the link to add your name:

Dear World, please ignore Bush
7 years ago
The Bush administration is trying to block progress at crucial negotiations for the next global climate treaty (I know, SHOCKING) -- the successor to the Kyoto Protocol. This petition sends a message to other countries that Bush's actions don't match Americans' wishes. (The petition just says: "Dear World, please ignore Bush.") Please join me in signing the petition--we need to make sure the world doesn't let Bush block a strong agreement on climate change!

Freerice was a really great idea. Sadly for those of us who are not native speakers we often go by instinct about which word should we choose next. It's like ' Hmmm... I think it has a positive meaning, does it? *click* Oh, not again! Well 14th time's a charm...'
So okey, maybe not to that extend but you get my drift.

I also signed the petition with deadline at 13th December.

Copied from another site:

"An easy way to help any organization or any other cause you care about is through a new Yahoo!-powered search engine and online shopping mall and called GoodSearch will make a donation to your favorite charity or school every time you search the internet and every time you purchase something at one of their partner merchants (including Target, Gap, ebay, Macy’s, BestBuy, Barnes & Noble and hundreds more)! It doesn't cost you a thing — the money comes from the advertisers and the stores.

The more people who use this site, the more money will go to those in need. So please spread the word to your friends and family.

Here's the web site — You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal."

Petition to Stop Development of a Cunned Hunting Facility

The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency in Upstate New York is planning to build a $1.3 million canned hunting facility on 2,300 acres of currently vacant land that used to be the Seneca Army Depot. It is inhumane to hunt animals in the first place, but putting them behind fences so that they have absolutel y no chance of escaping with their lives is not even hunting: it's slaughter. Please Take Action before the next meeting on December 13th to urge the Agency to reject the canned hunting proposal.

Some of our injured troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are facing a ridiculous and unnecessary obstacle. Because they have been discharged early, they are not receiving their full enlistment bonuses. Some are even be asked to return payments they have already received.

A new bill that would ensure this does not continue is gaining momentum in Congress, and lawmakers need to hear from civilians who support it. We can help our nations' veterans on this critical issue.

Please take a minute to send a message to your representatives, and tell them you support this bill. Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America has made it easy - just visit
