• top-up cards for the rough sleepers
    This is important because it is part of their human rights to be entitled to food as well as shelter. We are targeting the food side of it because it will make these people feel like their is a bit more hope and it will help them on their way to regaining a normal life. The cards will be funded by either Peterborough City Council or central government and will make a big difference to many rough sleepers' lives. https://www.youthforhumanrights.org/what-are-human-rights/universal-declaration-of-human-rights/articles-16-30.html

  • Don’t let Brexit keep child refugees from their families
    The government might close a route for separated child refugees to reach their families after a no-deal Brexit. Sayeed shares his story, and why you should sign the petition: "I am worried for child refugees in Europe who may no longer be able to reunite with family safely as I did. The Government could close this route to safety for child refugees, putting thousands of child refugees at risk. As a result children like me may be forced to jump on the back of lorries or overcrowded dinghies to be with family. I need your help to make sure the Government changes its mind. I need you to sign my petition. When I was 15 I was forced to flee Afghanistan because of civil war that made my life really dangerous. Leaving my Mum and Dad behind, I travelled for months on my own before I reached Calais - I walked, travelled by car, in lorries and on boats all by paying smugglers. Luckily when I reached Calais I found out that there was a legal route for me to be with my sister in the UK, until then most nights I was trying to jump on the back of lorries. But I never made it, I was stopped by police and beaten with a truncheon. It was so painful. Thanks to a route to family reunion I was able to come to the UK on the Eurostar to restart my life. I’ve now got leave to remain and am studying to be an electrician while taking my Maths and English GCSEs. I would feel awful if Brexit stopped other children like me from being with their family. Leaving them to make their own way from France, Greece or Italy is not a solution. Without this route they’ll be encouraged by traffickers to take even more dangerous journeys. Please sign the petition today."

  • Sanction America for their cruelty to immigrant children.
    Children have already died in the cages at the southern border. Children are still in cages, even though the US government have been told to do something about it. The children are only supposed to be incarcerated for a maximum of 20 days - this has not been the case. This human caging of children has been going on for over a year, and now the US government want to cage the children (and families) indefinitely. The UK government needs to act and show the rest of the world that President Trump and his administration are cruel and heartless and we, as decent human beings, do not agree with such unfair and ruthless treatment of our fellow men, women and children. Sanction the US and hopefully other decent countries will follow suit.

  • NHS Surcharge Fees
    It is important so applicants that have family in the UK don't go into debt and are not able to feed their family whenever they extend their stay because the renewal fees is almost 2 months worth of their wages.

  • Sanctions on India
    Indian army has been oppressing Kashmiri people since last 70 years. In the light of recent events, where India has started to extend its illegal occupation of Kashmir, human rights of people there are at stake. Kashmiri people are under siege with no freedom. India’s extremist regime is similar to Nazi regime, and minorities are facing serious risks to lives in India. There are mobs of Neo Nazi extremists, lynching innocent people on streets. Sanctions on India will force India to step back and solve the issue of Kashmir as per the will of Kashmiri people. it is our collective responsibility to protect rights of Kashmiri people and minorities in India.

  • Tell us where our school uniforms come from
    Trutex is one of the UK’s oldest suppliers of school uniforms. They produce uniforms and sportswear for thousands of schools across the UK and worldwide. This important company, which often has a monopoly on producing uniforms at many schools, does not provide any information at all on where their clothes are made. This needs to change. Trutex’s website offers vague promises of a commitment to ethical production and assurances that its production sites are well managed and safe. Yet unlike many other brands who have published lists of where their factories are located, Trutex remain silent and provide absolutely no evidence that what they say is true. Garment and shoe supply chains are hugely complex and brands often hide the data about where their clothes are made. What we do know for a fact however is that unsafe working conditions, extremely low wages and suppression of unions are found in many factories and workshops. Trutex has a sourcing office in Bangladesh where wages and conditions are very poor. Rumana, 26, is a worker in factory there and tells a typical story of garment workers' life. She said: ‘We have two school going children. Life is very expensive in this city. My children complain because I have to work very long hours, but if I do not work extra hours I will have to send my family back to the village to live with my mother. I have no way open other than doing the only job I know.' More publicly available information on the supply chains of major companies can go a long way towards improving human rights. What you know, you can change. In the last few years as transparency in supplier factories worldwide has increased, respect and protection for worker rights has become more possible. Trutex needs to step up and be honest, open and transparent about where its factories are as the first step to ensuring uniforms are made with safety and respect.

  • Give youth services the funding they need
    Youth violence and child criminal exploitation in the UK are at an all time high, and the government aren’t doing enough to prevent it. In the past 5 years, knife crime has increased by 71%, and the number of young people who lost their lives to violence rose by 45% from 2017-2018. And because of massive cuts to funding for youth programs and services, the criminal exploitation of children has sky-rocketed. If the government wants to protect young people in the UK from violence and exploitation, they need to fund youth services that can intervene early in young people’s lives, making sure they have safe places to go to and trusted adults to help them and protect them from harm. I started this petition because I have children myself, and I want the government to do more to give them opportunities, and keep them safe. Please sign and share.

  • The U.K. Government must publicly condemn the use of child detention centres in the USA
    America is currently separating young children from their parents at borders, and placing them alone in detention centres, without access to clean water, beds, contact with family members, or proper care. Migrants have been kept in cells at freezing temperatures, and many of them have died due to lack of proper medical care. The US government have used children as bait to arrest and deport family members who come forward to care for them. Human Rights Watch spoke to an 11 year old in one of the detention centres, caring for his toddler brother, in a cell crowded with other children. When they spoke to the brothers, the little one had matted hair, and a awful cough, with eyes half closed with fatigue. They had been in there for three weeks, with no contact with their relatives or the outside world. US border control are holding many children, as young as two years old, in jail-like border control facilities for weeks or months at a time without access to showers or clean clothes, with many children becoming sick. All migrants have the right to be treated with dignity, humanity, and compassion, and children are entitled to additional safeguards under both US and international law. It is time the U.K. government as the USA's closest allies take action and publicly condemn these human rights abuses.

  • Condemn Immigration Detention Centres in the U.S.A. as a Crime Against Humanity
    I submit that the ICE immigrant detention centres are a Crime Against Humanity by forcibly separating families, detaining asylum seekers with no criminal record, and detaining minor children for committing NO CRIME. So far, 24 people have died in the centres since the Trump administration took office. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/24-immigrants-have-died-ice-custody-during-trump-administration-n1015291 Recent visits to the U.S.A.'s ICE migrant detention centres by lawyers and members of congress exposed the following conditions endured by inmates: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/07/democrats-visit-texas-detention-centers/593191/ https://www.newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/inside-a-texas-building-where-the-government-is-holding-immigrant-children https://time.com/5623148/migrant-detention-centers-conditions/ https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/politics/elections/2019/07/16/migrant-detention-centers-described-2019-us-government-accounts/1694638001/ According to the United Nations Office on Genocide Protection and the Responsibilty to Protect, the following are among 11 definitions of Crimes Against Humanity, taken from Article 7 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court: "For the purpose of this Statute, ‘crime against humanity’ means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:" The fourth of these is: "Deportation or forcible transfer of population" The fifth is: "Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law" and the eleventh is: "Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health." A further clarification is given below: "For the purpose of paragraph 1:‘Attack directed against any civilian population’ means a course of conduct involving the multiple commission of acts referred to in paragraph 1 against any civilian population, pursuant to or in furtherance of a State or organizational policy to commit such attack."
