At the request made by the mother of a child sexual victim, the Judge at the High Court in Sri Lanka (Case No 39/2004), made a recommendation to the Attorney General to withdraw the indictment.
After considering all the facts involved and in view of the sheer severity of the damage that could cause to the victim in this particular case, the AG agreed to withdraw the charges. Unfortunately the news papers published the details of the case including false information violating the child's right to privacy and confidentiality, totally destroying the intentions of the courts and causing immense damage to the victim and her family.
This secondary victimization has severely damaged the victim without giving her the opportunity to rebuild her life.
Since the recent protests and restructuring of the Egyptian government there has been a significant and dangerous wave of vandalism, theft and antagonism at the ancient, Islamic, Coptic and Jewish sites and monuments of Egypt. During this time, there has been ineffective security personnel dispatched at said sites, largely consisting of unarmed police and inspectors.
The theft and damage to these sites is becoming considerable and the perpetrators are often armed and arrive in large gangs. The damage and loss of irreplaceable Egyptian and global heritage is significant and increasing. If not retrieved, any stolen items are irreplaceable. It is vital that adequate security is immediately restored to the monument sites and artifact storehouses in Egypt.
Trained and armed personnel must be dispatched back to these sites immediately.
HARD COPY OF THIS EXACT TEXT CAN BE FOUND AT www.kaURna.webs.com I encourage all Australian residents to download the PDF hardcopy, collect a few signatures (no address needed) and return as per the PDF. There is NO citizenship requirements to sign the hardcopy or electronic petition, however Australia's Parliament won't accept the electronic format, only hardcopy.
The intent to to stop enforced segregation of harms which could take a victim their entire adult life or well over 30 years to progress through the civil courts or otherwise logistically impossible for one person to deal with.
Stalking and assault and torture and surgery without legal authority are all unlawful in Australia, they all carry the potential of lengthy penal sentencing under criminal law, however Australian legislation has one huge loophole that forces a victim of these crimes to prosecute each single incident separately under civil or common law (state) or human rights treaties (federal or High court). That is if you are stalked by say 20 persons and police refuse to investigate each one and each of the 20 individuals assault you in separate incidents you have to prosecute each separately as unconnected events despite evidence that strongly suggests they are connected as one crime. Unlike the treatment of defamation, there is no allowance to deem multiple assaults as one stalking event that generates many incidents.
Point TWO (2):
The intent is to remove the expectation that only an "expert" is be legally entitled to define the existence of a foreign item a radiology film. Presently you must have a signed letter from a medical practitioner to say you have a hatchet poking out of your head if you want it removed, that is to say in the event that you do have a hatchet poking out of your head which you also want removed.
Jane is being stalked by many persons, most are strangers to her or persons she knows but is unaware they are the stalkers. The stalkers have caused Jane to be considerably surgically raped the evidence is in radiology diagnostic film funded by Medicare Australia between 2005 and 2010 inclusive. The film has been falsely interpreted on paper omitting to describe foreign items inside Jane that are very clearly seen in the film. The stalkers have falsely defamed Jane. The question of did the surgical rape of defamation come first is insignificant in the presence of the fact that both are considerably criminal, more so if there was premeditation and where both exist concurrently and begun around the same period of time then clearly there was premeditation.
The "choice" to investigate or not investigate a crime is removed as an option for a law enforcement official. That Federal police refuse to investigate these crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia then there is clear evidence that police are amongst the stalkers. Police should seen in legislation in a different light from the rest of us insomuch as they should have less room for error as they have more trust. Police should never be allowed to refuse to investigate any crime. It should not be up to police to choose what crime they want to investigate because that leaves individual police department "law enforcement" "public officials" open to be contracted by any third party as tools of stalkers. Under the present system of Australia police governance career criminals must presently be employed as senior police and aspiring cadets and everywhere in-between. Law enforcement officers are not necessarily police officers.
No land-line telephone number should be allowed to be blocked - as a society of humans who are defined as the superior race on earth because we are able to speak then we MUST all have full confidence in the ability to identify a person we encounter through verbal communication. If someone wants to preserve their telephone privacy they can call on a public phone. In these days of technology awareness rampant identity theft and sophisticated electronic crimes and the expectation that all government public officials must be accountable under statute, public official anonymity is totally unacceptable.
In 2011 just about every commonwealth of Australia department land-line telephone has it's number blocked from the persons they are calling, they expect you to divulge personal information under these circumstances.
Stand Up America supports the passage of HR 450 the Enumerated Powers Act that will demand that all acts of Congress must include a Constitutional Authority Clause.
This clause demands that:
`Each Act of Congress shall contain a concise and definite statement of the constitutional authority relied upon for the enactment of each portion of that Act. The failure to comply with this section shall give rise to a point of order in either House of Congress. The availability of this point of order does not affect any other available relief.'

Pilates classes have been running since 2004 at Silverdale Hall, Sydenham, London.

The Financial Services Authority (F.S.A.)is the independent watchdog that regulates all financial services.
How then, is the U.K. in one of the biggest financial downturns ever recorded (a recession, as it has now been officially declared), when the FSA is in place to supposedly stop this sort of thing happening ?

Watching aircraft and taking photos of aircraft is a popular and enjoyable pastime for people all over the world.
Why is it then, that one of the UK's premier airports has NO facilities whatsoever to observe aircraft?
We demand a dedicated viewing area, such as the one at Manchester, so we can enjoy our hobby!
Stillness Juniors was once a sought after school where parents would move into the catchment area so that their children could attend.
This school used to have a waiting list as classes were too full. So why in the last 4 years have parents been removing their children and placing them into other local schools or more drastically, moving out of the area all together?
Almost all the classes are now not fully subscribed. The amount of Teachers that have come and subsequently left the Juniors in the last 4 years is unprecedented. This in turn is affecting the superbly run infants & nursery school. If like me and many others you are unhappy with the way the Juniors is being run and feel that Stillness Junior School is desperately in need of a change of management then please sign this petition.
Let's again make Stillness Juniors a school we want to send our kids to. When we have enough signatures a copy will be sent to Ofsted, Lewisham Education Authority, the Mayor, our Local MPs, and the board of Governors. This petition in no way reflects against the hard working teachers in the juniors.
(If you tick the anonymous box your signature will only show on the completed petition to be used, but will not be visible to others online.)

Campaign Against Mandatory School Uniform (C.A.M.S.U.)
Website coming soon
A campaign by gen:Now
It has been a long upheld belief of the UK Government and school authorities that wearing school uniform boosts morale, prevents bullying, improves the learning environment and provokes pride.
Not one of these claims has any discerning scientific evidence to promote them, and the sad fact is that mandatory school uniform is a practice of totalitarianism embraced blindly by school authorities in the United Kingdom.
Even the faintest notion that forcing students to adorn uniform, especially as restricting and inconvenient as it is in the majority of cases, promotes morale and respect for a school is the most preposterous thought that could cross any persons mind. Obviously, forcing anybody to do something they don’t wish to will breed strong disrespect for the body inflicting that thing upon them. This is only amplified by the fact that that thing is so painfully and blatantly non essential and efficiency would be monumentally increased if that thing was nullified.
School uniform in fact neither provokes pride nor boosts morale, but instead breeds hatred for the authority the student is being dictated by. States of mind spawn like “I was born on this Earth and already have been made to go to school by others essentially equal to me, and am even made to wear a ridiculous uniform – why should I do either? I have a right to lead my own life,” and “If this world is dictated by such old fashioned and ignorant dictators, how am I helping by doing what they say?” spread like wildfire and problems like truancy and vandalism occur as a direct result.
School is an institution designed to teach young people, after all, and although discipline is an essential element in producing generations that are productive during their life, there is a fine line between discipline and denial of human rights. The idea that young people should have their time taken from them, in the form of a detention, if their parents do not purchase a uniform is absurd.
Here is what a parent can expect to pay for a uniform for an average secondary school student. These prices are from School Uniform Direct (http://www.schooluniformdirect.co.uk), a popular school wear distributor.
- Blazer : £59.99
- Sweatshirt £6.99
- Trousers : £8.99
- Shirts : £2.99
- Socks : £3.00
- Tie : £4.00 (Ricara)
- Shoes : £45.00 (Russell and Bromley)
That adds up to £130.96 per student, usually per year because this clothing just doesn’t last. That means in one students school life, about £1440.56 and above can be spent just on uniform. Guess why? Because a school just isn’t the right environment to be wearing such ridiculous garments of clothing.
Now we come to the most outlandish statement of all; school uniform improves the learning environment. I actually laughed when I was told this was one of the reasons school uniform was compulsory in the UK. How old fashioned! How short sited! How completely disregarding what schools are all about; young people and their education! The UK’s schools bear a disconcerting likeness to Hitler’s Germany; the stern belief that any smidgen of individuality should be smashed.
It has been scientifically proven that young people learn best in an environment they find comfortable; something school uniform most certainly isn’t. It doesn’t keep you warm in the winter, and in the summer you roast; this makes concentrating extremely hard.
In addition to this, the government actually believes that wearing a school uniform will prevent bullying because students from lower income families and social classes cannot afford fashionable clothing. This is nonsense. I have several t-shirts, shirts, fleeces, jackets, jeans and a perfectly good pair of shoes for out of school, and all together none of them cost as much as £130.96 – and each of the garments I wear at home have a lifespan of several years! They are also perfectly fashionable!
Unamed authority against Mrs. Carlson is trying to wear her down to termination. The evidence of her mental state because of previous loss of a child is unfairly being used against and above all unnecessary.

Unfair Flat-Rate Rental Increases in Albany Housing Authority.
As you are aware, Albany Housing Authority has recently raised the flat rent rates by fifteen to twenty percent. For many households this will mean a rent increases between $52 and $143 per month.
The idea of living in Public Housing for many families means a sense of security while providing us with the ability to manage better financially.
If we are forced to pay this amount, our families will either have to move and search for housing that is less expensive. This can mean living in conditions that are below standard or remaining in Public Housing and simply having to sacrifice our basic needs such as food, clothing and healthcare.
There has also been a decrease in maintenance workers, and the tenants that have been seeking improvements in their buildings are being overlooked. All this needs to be taken into consideration before agreeing to any increase in our rents.

In Early August Here In Los Angeles, I, The Petition Writer, Disabled, Was trying to take the bus here in the San Fernando Valley. It was a day that had 100+ degree heat.
The Bus Line I was trying to take runs only once an hour. The first bus arrived after waiting for some time. The bus was packed! The few able bodied people that were waiting with me, were able to squeese themselves onto the bus.
When It came time for me, the driver just said "Sorry, we're full. There's nothing I can do." With that, he drove off. Another hour goes by, and the next bus shows up. By this time I'm over heated, dehydrated, and angry.
The second bus is also overloaded with riders, and I could'nt get on that one either. That's when I had enough.
I pulled out in front of the bus and said, "If I can't get a ride, then you are'nt going anywhere either! After a short time, the bus line supervisor arrived. At that time, I figured I got my point accross, and allowed the bus to go.
I explained the entire situation to the supervisor, He took a written report, and since then nothing else has been done to remedy the problem.
Due to consistent over crowding of busses in the San Fernando Valley during peak hours, the settlement made in the copied document on the attached page in 1998, is currently insufficient. Furthermore, MTA is currently in violation of this court injunction. And has been, ever since it was written.
Those disabled, are still being left behind. Particularly during the peak rush hour due to overcrowding.
Therefore, more must be done to give disabled, and elderly riders sufficient service. Many of the bus lines located in the San Fernando Valley, have running times of one hour.
During peak hours, weekends, and during the summer season, this practice is not only insufficient, but a danger to those who rely upon this service as their only source or transportation.
An elderly person, or anyone that is in a type of frail health should never be forced to wait sometimes up to an hour in summer temperatures of up to, or over 100 degrees, or forced to wait for upwards of another hour for yet another bus due to extreme over crowding during these peak hours.
Being subjected to such circumstances, is not only an inconvenience, but is a considerable physical danger to those placed in that situation. Furthermore it is negligent, and due to the bill passed on the previous page, of which they, "MTA" are as previously stated above, currently in violation of this court injunction..
This is a document petition designed to force MTA "The Metro Transit Authority" to place the proper amount of transportation needed during these peak hours in to the areas where they are needed most. And to abide by the court injunction placed upon them back in 1998.
The Answer To The Problem: This could be easily done so by pulling busses from other less used areas, to those areas that are more congested.
Furthermore, this signed petition would make "The Metro Transit Authorities", MTA's continued lack of proper action concerning this issue, a criminal act of negligence. And therefore should be subject to legal action to the fullest extent of law.
The following is a statement from MTA of its policy regarding disabled patrons. As you will read, it does not go far enouph to ensure the safety of its patrons. Below the statement is the changes that must be made to ensure the safety of not only those patrons that are disabled, or elderly but all patrons.
"Metro has procedures in place which are to be implemented when a wheelchair patron cannot be boarded. The following procedure is to be taken when an operator cannot board a wheelchair patron.
The operator must stop and explain to the customer that the bus is full and when the next bus will arrive. Central Instructions has been requested to re-issue a bulletin to operators to this affect. The operator must also contact Bus Operation Control and inform staff that a wheelchair patron was not boarded and the reason why. Bus Operation Control Staff will:
1.) Assign a Field Supervisor to the location to contact the individual.
2.) Check the following bus to determine available capacity.
3.) Contact the nearest Division to determine if there is an Operator and bus available to transport the patron." (End Of Statement Of MTA Metro Transit Authority Policy.)
As of: June,15-06, the above policy of MTA (Metro Transit Authority) is inadequate, and needs to be changed immediately.
The MTA (Metro Transit Authority) bus operator should immediately, after explaining to the disabled patron that the bus is full:
A.) Contact Bus Operation Control while still on site with that disabled patron.
B.)Upon contact with Bus Operation Control, the driver must confirm to the effected patron that the contact has been made, and that another bus is then being added to the affected bus line to relieve the overcrowding problem on that line.
Driver must then be able to tell the effected patron the time that added bus will arrive. The replacement bus must then arrive vary soon there after.
C.) A written record of when and where this incident has occurred is to be made.
D.) A weekly review of these records should be done so that during peak congested hours when incidents like this occur, a bus can then be added to the effected line or lines during those hours, to relieve the overcrowding, and allowing adequate access to both able, and disabled patrons.
E. Furthermore, during extreme heat, NO patron should EVER have to wait an hour or more for a bus. Many patrons that rely on this transportation system do so either because they cannot afford their own vehicle, or due to age, or physical disabilities of one form or another, are unable to drive.
For those that are in poor health, having to endure waiting for upwards of an entire hour during the extreme heat conditions of summer can, and no doubt have resulted in possible heat stroke, or worse.
This is policy is unacceptable, and is a danger to all patrons.
If MTA (Metro Transit Authority) can supply areas of Downtown Los Angeles with busses that run approximately every fifteen minutes, then they can supply the congested areas of the San Fernando Valley with buses that can run more often than just once every hour.
MTA (Metro Transit Authority) as a public service, needs to correct this problem, and must be obligated as a public service to take proper actions needed to protect the people that it serves. Failure to do so should result in a charge of negligence on the part of MTA (Metro Transit Authority), and should be therefore held accountable.

We, the undersigned, are shocked and dismayed by your financial dealings with the Neturei Karta sect both as a principle and by reference to the scale of funds and period of years this has been going on.
We regard this conduct as offensive to the Jewish community at large, and a gross betrayal of the trust of Adass synagogue members and the legacy of the movement's founder, Rabbi Dr Solomon Schonfeld of blessed memory.
We, the undersigned, request that the UOHC issues a public apology for this conduct, to appear in a suitable community newspaper, confirming that they dissociate themselves and the Adass movement from the ethos and activities of the Neturei Karta sect and to pledge that they will have no further dealings with the NK or its followers.
We further request that the Trustees
(1) Seek reimbursement of Union funds still in the hands of NK.
(2) End all financial dealings with 3rd party organisations that support or benefit NK or its members.
(3) Call on the Adass rabbinate to excommunicate the NK and its followers by means of a Cherem.
Those of us undersigned that are Adass synagogue members hereby state that - should the above requests not be fulfilled - we will vote for the secession of our community from the UOHC.
We submit this petition with full respect to the esteemed and learned rabbis of the Union and Adass synagogues, whose authority and honour are held in the highest regard.
I have decided to update the more "civil" petition here,
so that all can view the signatures. Please use your real names/screen names, that is what wil get the job done. Not fictional ones. Thanks. -SirBrad

This is a petition for the owners of Penguin Magic to remove a few extremely immature, and mentally challenged 'so called moderators' who are continuing to make the Penguin forums a place of misery for all members.
These incompetent, and mentally handicapped kiddies are only concerned about getting off daily from their alleged power trips, by locking, editing, and deleting topics that do not even need edited. They also continue to torture all the members with their prepubescent mentalities, and the spelling and Grammar that would make a pre-school student look like a college graduate.
The main mods in question are, bravesaint, wiggy191, and jak. AKA: 'The three stooges.' These three morons are probably the most stupid idiots that I personally have ever seen attempt to type on an internet forum, let alone try to moderate. bravesaint is the alleged leader of the retard squad, the others simply follow suit. bravesaint, an inane, incoherent moron who claims to do magic professionally full-time, yet somehow manages to be on forums 24/7 locking/deleting/editing topics, thus throwing in his last nonsensical, and extremely poor/kiddie like last jabs.
This so called full-time professional also still lives at home with his dad. What torture that must be for that poor guy. But getting back to the point at hand, as it is entirely too easy, and time consuming to list brave's faults, and failures in life, please vote to have these preposterous, and asinine forum losers demoted as soon as possible. They are specifically the main reason why many great members have left the forums, and why all those same members will never buy another product from Penguin again while they are still in their very poorly appointed positions of 'moderator.'
These lame-brained, senseless, and introverted misfits make Penguin look bad every single day by their so called "representation," and even though they most likely could not live their pathetic lives anymore after a demotion, as their lives solely depend on being looked upon as an 'authority figure' by 10 year olds, especially bravesaint, I am afraid this decision is for the betterment of literally thousands upon thousands of members, and the putrid stench of these three morons has lingered on long enough.
So I ask that you please sign the petition, and vote to eliminate the scum of Penguin town, so that it may then continue to grow and prosper as a magic discussion forum in general, and actually influence members to participate, not have scum tell them to "just leave." Because let's face it, when they do leave they will also be taking their wallets, and their parent's credit cards with them also. So actually these mentally defective nitwits are costing Penguin a lot of money by remaining mods, and causing everyone else A LOT of unnecessary grief.
So please vote, and hopefully the admins will finally see the light and demote these ignoramus, nincompoops as soon as possible, and finally realize what a very poor decision it was long ago to even appoint such lowlifes as mods in the first place, as they have been told now for about 3 years. Then we can all get back to posting positively, and constructively as usual, and without fear of our posts being edited by a few prepubescent, power happy, authority wannabes, who are actually too stupid to ever have any real authority in life. Thank you. Petition Creator - Sirbrad
Over recent years there has been a rise in the formation of local authority run Parks Police / Constabulary Services operating within the London Region. Parks Police Services are governed by their respective local authority; therefore, none are run to a set regional or national standard.
Typically, there are variations in Training, Uniform, Issue of Personal Protective Equipment, Vehicles, Livery and Rank Structures. Each individual service is accountable to their respective Local Authority and currently falls outside the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Parks Police Officers (Parks Constables) are attested in a Magistrates Court as Constables under Article 18, Ministry of Housing and Local Government Provisional Order Confirmation (Greater London Parks & Open Spaces) Act 1967.
This legislation is dated and unclear, which leaves many legal arguments constantly being debated which causes a greater level of confusion amongst the services themselves and Home Office Force Colleagues.
Issues surrounding Uniform, Training, Vehicles, Livery, Protective Equipment and Rank Structures and management needs to be standardised across the London Region, enabling such services to receive the appropriate recognition for the function they perform within our communities. The formation of a 'Local Authority Parks Police Commission' with representatives from each respective Local Authority and representatives from the Metropolitan / City Police, along with a cross section of the community would add to the accountability of such services.
Legislation surrounding Parks Police / Constabulary Services should be revised to fall inline with other more recent Police and Anti Social Behaviour Legislation enabling the potential of these services to be maximised and utilised within London borough's in tackling Crime & Anti Social behaviour.
In the interest of General Public of Bangalore : IS RULE ONLY FOR THE POOR?
This is to bring to your notice that general public is harassed for paying a penalty amount for parking before and after Kentucky Restaurant ( a window outlet ) adjacent to Ramanshree Comforts, Raja Ram Mohan Roy Road, which is a no parking area (sign board is displayed). Where as the customers of the hotel have been allowed to park with no penalty amount and troubling other vehicles moving on the road.

the heritage and conservation significance of the site;
the increased traffic congestion and transport dangers if the site is sold and developed;
our objection to the proposed sale of the land to developers; and
our support for the retention of the land as "open space" to be managed and utilised by the Australian Jockey Club for and on behalf of the community.
We wish to petition for the establishment of an able autistic unit attached to a mainstream middle school in the Kidderminster area of worcestershire.
