  • 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:

  • Please save our dad from execution in Ethiopia
    WE WON! 30/05/18 British citizen Andy Tsege has received a pardon from the Ethiopian Government after almost four years on death row in Ethiopia. Andy has now been released from prison and is now with his family in Ethiopia. After four unbelievably hard years for on death row this is wonderful news for Andy, his partner and their children. The new Ethiopian government should be recognised for what they have done today. “I am so thankful that the pain and anguish my children have had to go through could now soon be coming to an end. Helawit, Yilak and Menabe have spent too long without their father and we are all hoping Andy will be free to come home to us soon.” Yemi Hailemariam, Andy’s partner

    19/12/2014: At a Cabinet meeting on 9 December, the Leader of Cheshire East Council, Michael Jones announced that Hollins View would stay open until December 2015. We are overjoyed with the news, but know that this is only a temporary measure and the service is still under threat. However, without your help the service would have already been lost. We are closing the petition now and hope to start again in 2015 to try to ensure that this valuable facility stays open.
