Thank you all...!!! :)

AniMaeChi... I don't think halting the fair is going to stop children from smoking tobacco. Even if there is such regulation forbidding child tobacco consumption in Indonesia, there's no guarantee that it will stop child tobacco consumption. In my opinion, the goal of this petition is just to stop the fair from doing more damage to the children...

It's kind of unbelievable how many people smoke in Germany. They have restricted it pretty much (though the rules vary from state to state) but even with smoking areas on the platforms at the train stations in Frankfurt (what I call the drug using area) there is on almost every corner auto machines for buying cigarettes at every and any hour. They are mounted on buildings. Supposedly an ID is necessary but how hard is it to slip Mom's or Brother's ID out for a smoke?

Every time I'm in Germany I'm amazed by this.

Worse, there is often vending machines for children (kinder) just next to or even under the cigarette vending. :(

BLEH!

This is sick! I quit smoking tobacco/ nicotin/ tar, I smoke herbs instead, like the native Americans....Knaster is far more healthy; but of course non smoking is best.They should get rid of those cigaret machines altohether.

No cigarettes for children! Stop the German city of Dortmund's tobacco promotion in Indonesia!

There was a documentary on this shown in USA for Indonesia. But it doesn't surprise me it's elsewhere too. As there are fewer people buying this deadly product in one area they simply move to a new market where there are fewer restrictions.

Cigarettes is a product if used correctly results in death. I quit over 25 years ago and am so glad I did, I only wished that my husband had been able to join me. I lost him, due to his smoking. As he tried to tell everyone before he left this earth, don't let lung cancer be your way to quit smoking, you quit alright......you're dead.

Disgusting company, even worse to promote it to children, but they know this creates a market for them into the future until that next addicted person dies or is able to quit, hopefully in time.
