  • Protect Individuals in the Public Eye
    Year after year people are suffering with their mental health and people that are in the public eye, i.e. influencers, singers, writers and tv hosts are subject to some of the most hate any one person should receive. There needs to be stricter rules and guideline in place to protect people. When receiving hate comments and messages it effects mental health and they don't have support in place from others to help and social media platforms allow the trolling to continue. The time has come for change, laws need to be in place to stop trolling, homophobic and racist comments.

  • Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill
    We are at a unique stage in our history. The future of humanity and indeed, all life on earth, now depends on us" - David Attenborough Why do we need this bill? We are facing an unprecedented climate crisis and the UK government simply isn’t doing enough. This is an emergency, the next 10 years are critical to keeping global temperatures at a safe level, and we want the government to take immediate and appropriate action. The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill has been written by scientists, lawyers and activists; it has been proposed in parliament by Caroline Lucas MP and is gathering support from a broad range of campaign groups, businesses, charities and individuals. The key points contained in the bill are: 1. Ensure the UK reduces greenhouse gas emissions in line with its legal obligations to limit global heating to 1.5°C 2. Protect and restore woodlands, wetlands and the wider natural world 3. Set up an assembly to involve people from all parts of the UK to develop a strategy to deal with the climate emergency. We need the support of as many MPs as possible from all political parties. Please sign this petition asking Sarah Dines MP to support and vote for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill when it returns to the House of Commons on 12th March 2021.

  • Save Our Kids Free Meals in Newham
    The Eat For Free scheme provides a free hot meal during school term time. It brings both educational and health benefits and this has been validated by a study from the University of Essex. A family with two children save around £700 per year using the scheme. Newham has high rates of poverty and deprivation. We have suffered disproportionately during Covid and many of our families have lost their jobs. How can a Labour Council take food from the mouths of its children?

  • Mandatory Mental Health lessons in schools
    It's important because it affects us all. If not directly then through the people we know and meet along the road to adulthood. As a society we should know how to handle it within ourselves and the people around us. To prevent the worst, to help us understand each other, and to create a society where there is no such thing as mental health "issues"

  • End Kingspan sponsorship of Ulster Rugby
    Kingspan, an Irish company based in Cavan, manufactured Grenfell Tower’s combustible insulation. During the Grenfell Inquiry into the tower block fire which killed 72 people in 2017, a former executive said that the firm was involved in a “deliberate and calculated deceit”, which involved the product, which failed several full-scale fire tests, but was being sold on the basis of earlier tests of a different, less combustible version of the product. The inquiry has also heard that Kingspan rigged tests and hired lobbyists after the disaster to try to persuade MPs that rival non-combustible products might be no less dangerous. Ulster Rugby should play no part in whitewashing Kingspan's image and must terminate it's sponsorship relationship and rename the stadium. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/nov/30/kingspan-manager-belligerent-over-fire-concerns-in-2008-grenfell-inquiry-hears https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/dec/08/staff-joked-safety-claims-about-material-used-on-grenfell-were-all-lies-inquiry-told

  • Pay Student Nurses in Northern Ireland
    During the last peak of Covid19 when students were heavily depended upon to help alleviate pressure on qualified nurses, the Department of Health in Northern Ireland recognised their efforts financially. No such payment is available this time, which has left students feeling massively undervalued. They have also been told not to speak to the media about the issue. https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus/ni-student-nurses-risking-lives-without-pay-in-coronavirus-battle-39708516.html

  • We Support Teachers
    On 9th December 2020 The Sun newspaper published a Comment piece by Rod Liddle entitled "Covid has made heroes of many of our frontline workers… but not teachers". We, the undersigned, petition The Sun to remove this inflammatory "article" which neither accurately describes how teachers have behaved during the Global Pandemic, nor reflect how parents feel about the education their children have received since March 2020. We also call on The Sun to allow for an opposing Comment piece to be written giving all the grateful parents a chance to show the readership how educating their children in 2020 would not have happened without the support of hard working teachers. 2020 was not an ideal year for anyone - berating an entire profession for doing their best is unacceptable. Teachers are real heroes, and they don't get to hear it enough.

  • We demand a modern bus interchange in Winchester
    Bus travel in Winchester has a bad image. There are several reasons for this but a key one has always been the lack of a decent bus station. Getting rid of the bus station altogether and forcing users to wait at cold, unsafe spread out bus stops will only worsen the situation. Also, for many less mobile users, the walk between stops would be hard work. We need to be far less dependent on our cars given we're in a climate crisis, a new bus station would be a good way of improving the poor image of bus travel and encouraging a shift to buses. To make an even bigger impact respond to the consultation and tell WCC we wand a modern bus station: https://winchester.citizenspace.com/national-management-trainee/cwr-development-proposals/consultation/subpage.2020-11-06.7777517352/ ========================================================= More detail: Winchester City Council have completely dismissed the fact that the lack of a bus station was one of the key reasons the public objected to the 2009 scheme and the reason why it formed a central part of the 2018 Supplementary Planning Document. On-street bus stop provision rather than a bus station is a complete cop-out. It means: -Long and potentially confusing walks of up to a quarter of a mile between stops when interchanging, particularly affecting the elderly and those with mobility issues. -Some bus users would need to walk a quarter of a mile to get to the high street, double the distance from a new bus station on Middlebrook Street, particularly affecting the elderly and those with mobility issues. There will be no safe, weather-proof environment to wait for buses as can be found in many modern bus stations. - Streets such as Middlebrook and Silverhill will still not be traffic-free so air quality and safety will be compromised significantly. When Lower High St was a shared space for pedestrians and buses it was wholly unpleasant and dangerous. - The ability to transition to electric buses is likely to be far more costly and complex as charging infrastructure would have to be built into the street itself. The 2017 Winchester Transport survey produced by Atkins showed that shelter and safety were ranked 3rd and 4th in terms of importance and along with requests for a new bus station these things were mentioned more than anything else in the questionnaires. The nature of on-street bus provision means that it simply cannot provide improved levels of comfort for bus users and neither can it provide sufficient safety. Given that there is no advantage to on-street bus provision we can only conclude that this decision has been made purely to maximise profit from the development and certainly not in the best interests of bus users. Transport is the largest contributor to the district's carbon footprint. We consider a modal shift to active travel and public transport as a key means of reducing this. Alongside cost and reliability, we consider the image of bus travel to be a key barrier to increased ridership in Winchester. This can only be changed by investing in a modern, efficient bus network with a safe, integrated terminus. This opportunity must not be lost.
