• 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.

  • North Tyneside Council to abolish parking charges
    North Tyneside Council currently have a system of parking charges which unfairly discriminates against anyone who has not got/ is unable to use either a mobile phone or debit card to pay for parking. The council also charge till 8pm every evening which is later than all surrounding council areas. Up and down the coastal car parks the council are replacing coin machines with pay by APP or debit card payment only. This means that people who use cash only cannot park as many people do not routinely carry mobile phones or debit cards whilst walking dogs, exercising, using the beach etc.... This ridiculous ruling will also undoubtedly have an undesirable knock on effect of additional parking in residential streets by visitors to the area. People who do not have mobile phones & debit cards for payment are being unfairly discriminated against by the council.

  • Abolish Gas and Electric Daily Standing Charge
    All the energy providers charge for a daily standing charge (DSC) for the provision of Gas and Electric supplies. The DSC varies between energy providers and also which of their tariffs. This year the DSC appears to be in excess of 20p per day for either gas or electric. You could, therefore, be paying over £146 per year to energy providers in addition to the cost of your gas and electric. In this day and age, I cannot see any reason as to why a DSC should be levied, as it seems to go back to the days before consumers were given the choice of energy provider. I also believe that the DSC is also one way that the energy providers can increase tariff prices and gain extra revenue,yet state they have cheaper energy tariffs. This DSC should be abolished.

  • Put lights in Acton Park main path
    This path is now open in the evening due to a new school having been built in the park. The path is heavily used by parents, children and local people going between Acton Central Station and buses on Uxbridge Road. It is very dark in winter. The Churchfield Community Association has asked Ealing Council to install lights (solar if suitable) to come on only in winter and for limited hours, e.g. 6-8.30am and 4-8pm. The Council have asked us to show support for this proposal.

  • Remove tax on environmentally friendly products
    There is an increasing focus on the recycling of many different materials. Whilst this is obviously vital for environmental sustainability, we should also encourage the use of recycled and reclaimed resources, to ‘close the loop’ and increase the demand for these materials.

  • Supermarkets: Shut your fridge doors!
    Fridges in our supermarkets use up 1% of all electricity in the UK. Most shops use open fridges, which use far more energy to stay cool than alternatives with doors. At a time when the planet faces a climate crisis that 1% - enough to power 800,000 thousand houses in the UK a year - is too high. But there's a simple fix - just putting doors on all supermarket fridges and freezers would would save as much energy yearly as is used by the entire residential population of Poland. In France, supermarkets have signed up to a voluntary agreement to put doors on three-quarters of their 450 miles of fridge aisles by 2020 - so its time for UK supermarkets to follow suit. If thousands of customers sign a petition against the open fridges as well as let them know that they would be happy to *open a door* to help save the planet, they could be forced to listen and start using fridges and freezers with doors. The Telegraph: Supermarkets told to shut the door as it emerges open fridges use one per cent of Britain's electricity: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/07/28/supermarket-fridges-should-closed-campaigners-say-emerges-use/

  • Stop Using Drinking Water in Toilet Cisterns
    There are many reasons why the Victorian toilet system needs to evolve. It is an archaic and arrogant use of resources, energy and money to clean water to drinking standard and then to defecate in it. The system was a solution to a Victorian problem. We are now at the dawn of the third decade of the 21st century and we have a whole host of other problems. We are already experiencing climate chaos and predictions show growing issues with water shortages. We need to conserve water. We need to conserve energy. By changing our relationship to water, we can learn to interact with it in a different way. Stopping using drinking water in toilet cisterns will open up a whole new green industry like it has in California – where people have redirected their grey or rain water into the toilet cisterns to save water. Changing the Building Regulations makes a strong and positive statement to the world that our Victorian sewage system is evolving. The flushing toilet was designed in the UK, it can evolve here too. I spent time living in South America, where water was limited and precious. A flushing toilet in countries where they have water shortages is totally inappropriate. When I returned to the UK and experienced my first 6 litres of drinking water being flushed away – I found it absurd! I have researched this subject in depth academically and hope to try to shift perspectives by sharing the ideas in a book and with this petition. We have the ability to become an eco-centric society -understanding and truly respecting our interconnectivity with all of life. Water is vital for our survival. Water is life. Please join me.

  • Complete Footpath From New Cumnock To Cumnock
    This is the link between New Cumnock and the main town, Cumnock. The path was constructed after a man was fatally injured on this stretch. As it is quite a level section it would help able bodied, disable, sight impaired people to both exercise and commute in safety. Many cannot afford to commute by bus for groceries etc.

    It is needed by the community and is a key part of our local infrastructure - lots of people use it and it has easy access for the disabled and elderly. A lot of businesses in the town rely on the branch to do their banking and have business accounts there.

  • Amazon - play fair with TheGivingMachine Charity
    Amazon partner with thousands of other websites and businesses and pay sales commissions for the sales that generates for them. Their standard rates start around 5% and go up to 11%. https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/help/operating/schedule When TheGivingMachine.co.uk first started working with Amazon, they paid us the standard rates but for some reason, they didn't like the fact that we gave away our income to schools, other charities and community groups all across the UK. Amazon cut our % from 5% to 3% and then more recently to 1%. This is an unfair business practice and we need your help to get that changed. Please sign up and help Amazon understand that this is wrong and they should restore this vital income to thousands of great causes across the UK. Why does this matter? Over £400,000 in charitable income has been lost so far and this affects thousands of smaller organisations, many too small to be charities, across the UK but serving some of the most vulnerable. It is wrong that "for profit" businesses can make at least 5x as much income from Amazon than we can - all because we want to make the world a better place.

  • Make Busby Glen Park Accessible
    As a disabled resident I often walk my dog at Busby Glen. I use a mobility scooter so I’m unable to access the top part of the park as the only access is stairs. There is access if you are able to walk up the grass verges but on a mobility scooter, it’s impossible. I would like the council to address this issue.
