• Stop and Think
    Xenofobia that has been promoted as a means to an end, so that those who wish to see the UK leave the European Union hate European citizens has been on the increase and as many other immigrants I have been on the receiving end of it many times since the referendum. My very first job in the UK in 1998 was with the NHS, it still is. I as European immigrants all over the country have been providing health care, services, and working towards the good of all whilst earning a salary that allows us to survive without resorting to ask for any benefits, when applying for a job no immigrant had an advantage they had to have the skills and knowledge to be able to do the job they applied for, so there was no jobs stealing, there is enough jobs for all and we can all, as we did for so many years work happily together. We immigrants as a whole contributed so much to the UK economy trough our taxes, paying rent, buying food, clothes and generally by living in the UK . And are being portrayed as something we are not. The abusive and misleading campaign against our presence in a European country that has always welcomed immigration needs to stop. Please Stop and Think we are all human with the same rights is it ok to abuse others based on their nationality or country of birth? Please sign the petition let's not politics change our society for the worse.

  • End Physical Violence Against Children
    Physically harming children in any way has no place in 21st century Britain. The Scottish Government are banning violence against children in any forms, but in England it’s still legal to harm a child so long as you don’t leave a trace. Experts have made crystal clear how dangerous and damaging any kind of violent, abusive treatment of children is to their mental health and development. There’s never an excuse, and it’s time the law made that clear. If you think children in England deserve the same protections as children in Scotland, will you add your name to the petition today?

  • No references for recruitment
    Remove this requirement as it stops a lot of people getting the opportunity to work. As new workers haven't got references, they can't work or their process is delayed until they find someone to say they are good. Let them work for 60 days, then if they are good and a hard worker, they will be permanent, otherwise, just give them notice and recruit others. But don't block our way to finding a job by asking for references.

  • Women's Rights in Iran
    A young woman last week committed suicide [set herself on fire] while waiting for her court case rather than face six months in prison . Her crime - attending a football match. This is not allowed in Iran. So too is for women to sing solo or dance on their own. There are many other rules in Iran that disallow women equal rights .

  • 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."
