  • Save Derby's Darley Park Riverside

Derby City Council parks department have been made aware that they must in future consult with the local community before taking action to change the nature of the riverside parks.

  • Stop Lincolnshire County Council cutting funding for local bus services
    UPDATE - 28/03/16 - We Won! We were planning a demonstration at the full council budget meeting, but 2 days before this, the Council announced it had received extra funding for the next 2 years for these vital bus services. I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you that got in touch, signed and shared this petition - I do not think we could have forced Lincolnshire County Council into a major rethink and change of heart, without your support. It shows that when many people stand with a united voice, change is possible. You can watch my speech at full council here from 7 mins - 12 mins https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfXRq3OoIOg

  • Save the National Media Museum in Bradford
    The museum is saved! After more than 45,000 people signed petitions to protect the science museums in the north of England, Culture minister Ed Vaizey announced that the museums would not be given the proposed 10% budget cut and that there was "no question of them closing." The MP for York Central said: "All the campaigning and all the warnings sent to the government that it would be an act of cultural vandalism if one of these museums were to close appears to have been heeded." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-22948171

  • Refugees Welcome in Lincoln
    I handed in the 'Refugees Welcome in Lincoln' last Friday morning (11th September) and today I have just read on The Lincolnite that the council has agreed to take 200 Syrian refugees (link below). This is brilliant news. I am certain that the petition will have played its part in convincing the council to make a humanitarian response to the plight of the Syrian people. http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2015/09/lincolnshire-in-line-to-support-200-syrian-refugees/

  • Stop Las Iguanas forcing their staff to "Pay to Work"
    UPDATE - 25/09/15 Victory! Amazing news, following a campaign from 38 Degrees members, restaurant company Las Iguanas have announced they are changing their unfair tips policy. It’s a fantastic victory for people power. https://home.38degrees.org.uk/2015/09/28/las-iguanas-campaign-victory/ Read their announcement here: http://www.iguanas.co.uk/news/ourpolicy "What a great result for the hard-working staff at Las Iguanas and all 38 Degrees members. This shows without a doubt that when the public get together and have a single-minded focus, then things can and will change. Other restaurants with unfair tipping policies should be looking at this and following suit." Samuel Hughes - Petition Starter

  • Strip Donald Trump of his honorary degree
    UPDATE: We've won the campaign! Robert Gordon University have just announced that they are revoking Donald Trump's honorary degree. They say: "In 2010 Robert Gordon University awarded an honorary DBA to Mr Donald Trump, in recognition of his achievements as an entrepreneur and businessman. In the course of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the ethos and values of the university. The University has therefore decided to revoke its award of the honorary degree" Click here to email the university to say thank you: https://speakout.38degrees.org.uk/campaigns/donald-trump
