Petition Tag - prime minister
Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada are using donations and tax revenue to post negative, misleading attack ads. These ads are pervasive in all forms of the media including TV, internet and radio. They even take place outside of election periods.
Rather than promoting a positive agenda, they make fun in a derisive and false way their opponents. This should stop now as Canada and Canadians should and do hold themselves to a higher standard.
The Current Labor Government's actions have caused financial and emotional hardship to many Australians and it seems their priorities lie overseas rather than on homegrown soil.
Stand up and make your voice heard if you agree that we cannot wait until the next election to remove Julia Gillard as Prime Minister.
Julia Gillard is arrogant and using the Australian people as puppets for her own personal ambitions.
Governor General John Kerr dismissed the then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam with similar reasons that we are requesting of the current Governor General. Though the opposition is not blocking supply Kerr dismissed Whitlam stating in part "You have previously told me that you would never resign or advise an election of the House of Representatives or a double dissolution and that the only way in which such an election could be obtained would be by my dismissal of you and your ministerial colleagues." We believe that Julia Gillard has demonstrated that she would not resign nor call an early election. See letter from Kerr to Whitlam below:
Whitlam Dismisal Letter
Julia Gillard won the election on the promise that there would not be a carbon tax under a government that she leads and as soon as taking power announces that there will be a carbon tax under her government. This government blatantly lies for their own gains.
Julia Gillard and the Government is making an absolute mockery of Australia on the international stage and putting up barriers for businesses to invest in Australia.
Please give your support to this petition and please help make this petition successful by tweeting, facebooking, emailing etc to everyone you know and asking them to do the same.
Even if we cannot achieve a dismissal, let's get enough support to pressure the government to an earlier election!

Between: CANADIAN CITIZENS (BY BIRTH, IMMIGRATION, ABORIGINAL PEOPLES), HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
Accused: PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA, STEPHEN JOSEPH HARPER
The accused, Stephen Harper, Prime Minister, stands charged:
THAT he has and continues to commit High Treason and conspire with Members of Parliament against the people of all provinces and territories by failing to comply or communicate with Her Majesty the Queen in the Right of Canada in regards to levying war by purchasing F-35 fighter jets during peacetime under questionable circumstances (Appendix A), legislating the Crime Omnibus which creates a war zone for Canadian citizens (Appendix B), violating four sections of the Canadian Rights and Freedoms, Constitution Act, 1982 (Appendix C), and violating three articles of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations (Appendix D).
PÉTITION POUR L'ARRESTATION DU CITOYEN
Entre: LES CITOYENS CANADIENS (PAR NAISSANCE, IMMIGRATION, AUTOCHTONES), SA MAJESTÉ LA REINE
Accusé: LE PREMIER MINISTRE DU CANADA, STEPHEN JOSEPH HARPER
L'accusé, Stephen Harper, Premier ministre, est accusée:
Ce qu'il a et continuera à commettre une haute trahison et de conspiration avec des membres du Parlement contre le peuple de toutes les provinces et les territoires en omettant de se conformer ou communiquer avec Sa Majesté la Reine du chef du Canada en ce qui concerne la guerre perception par l'achat de F-35 de combat jets en temps de paix dans des circonstances douteuses (Annexe A), légiférer sur la Omnibus Crime qui crée une zone de guerre pour les citoyens canadiens (Annexe B), la violation de quatre du Charte canadienne des droits et libertés, La Loi Constitutionnelle de 1982, Canada (Annexe C), et de violer trois articles de La Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme, Organisation des Nations Unies (Annexe D).
Whereas the citizens of Canada have duly elected the Members of the 40th Parliament, and
Whereas the first session of the 40th Parliament was prorogued during a period of profound economic instability, while the Government resisted a coalition helmed by a Member whose continuing leadership of his Party was in question, and
Whereas no such economic or political crisis currently plagues Canada, and
Whereas the Prime Minister's prorogation request appears to be concerned more with insulating his Government from the scrutiny of Parliament than from serving the interests of Canada, and
Whereas proroguing Parliament is a direct threat to the function of Parliament and the will of the Canadian electorate:
Diane Abbot was the first black woman to be elected to the house of commons in 1987, and remained the only one for 10 years. She is known as a free-spirit with high morals and not one to 'tow the party line', with both a honest, professional and frank personality, whilst still retaining a sense of humour. Furthermore, she also has the ability to admit her mistakes and isn't afraid to answer the hard questions.
She can be seen regularly on the television program "This Week" along with Michael Portillo and Andrew Neil, on which she is a regular political commentator.
Even more appealing however, is the fact that she doesn't have a second home.
More information is available about her at:
London Mayor Johnson said in passing at a Mayor’s Question Time event in February 2009 that he has ambitions to extend the Bakerloo line to Lewisham, however no official announcement was made nor further details given. Chuka Umunna, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Streatham has now (in July 2009) obtained confirmation from Transport for London (TfL) that Mayor Johnson and TfL are considering plans to extend the Bakerloo line southwards to Lewisham and an examination of the feasibility of such a scheme is at an advanced stage.
Mr Umunna and local residents in Streatham are demanding to know why an extension of the Bakerloo line to that area as an alternative has not also been considered as part of this study. They argue that Streatham is in greater need of improved transport links and that other areas such as Lewisham are already well served by various transport connections, including the extension of the Docklands Light Railway which opened in 1999.
Instead of Lewisham, Umunna and campaigners say that a southward Bakerloo line extension from Elephant & Castle, where the line currently terminates, could run through Camberwell and Brixton to Streatham and should be considered. Such an extension would have the added benefit of relieving congestion on the very busy Streatham High Road part of the A23 (Europe’s longest High Street) and on the Northern and Victoria lines in neighbouring Clapham and Brixton.
The Bakerloo line is only one of the options available for bringing the tube to Streatham. Currently, the Victoria line’s capacity constraints make it difficult to extend it beyond Brixton. But the planned Crossrail 2 scheme, running from Chelsea to Hackney, would considerably relieve congestion on the Victoria line, creating the potential for an extension southwards to Streatham from Brixton.
Commenting on the campaign, Mr Umunna said:
“I have lived here for most of my life and people have been talking about the desirability of having the tube in Streatham for as long as I can remember.
“This campaign is a long term project. Public finances are going to be tight for the next few years but we need to build up a head of steam behind this now so that when there is more money about, we are in a good position to demand it is used to finally bring the tube here.
Mr Umunna and campaigners argue that local businesses in Streatham would benefit from the area being linked to central London by the tube. Streatham's poor transport links have too often held the area back in the past. Bringing the tube to Streatham would dovetail with regeneration of the area, such as the Streatham Hub project and more people would be attracted to visit the area and its attractions, which include one of London's only ice rinks.
Commenting further, Mr Umunna said:
"This area would benefit hugely from a tube station. As well as obvious benefits for local residents, it would give a massive boost to the regeneration of Streatham and the local economy.
The Honourable The Prime Minister,
We, the undersigned, express our deepest concerns about the situation in Iran. The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has failed to respect the outcome of an electoral process which had already been restricted to four trusted candidates. In reaction to the peaceful protests by citizens and voters who felt cheated, the government resorted to outright violence, further suppression of rights and restriction of all media coverage. University dormitories have been attacked and students and faculty savagely beaten and detained. Most tragically, tens of innocent citizens have already been killed.
In the past few days, the Iranian government has disregarded the aspirations of the citizens and their basic rights. The students and the youths of the country are being killed, injured and imprisoned.
Iranian citizens are calling for change.
The Government has run out of ideas, money and, worst of all, public confidence in politics has plummeted.
We desperately need change to rebuild our economy, mend our broken society and clean up politics.
We need a General Election now for the people to have their say and to produce a Parliament and Government that can properly deal with these problems.
As the Commander of UNAMIR, in his humanitarian and public service since, and as a senator, L.Gen Romeo Dallaire has proved himself to be the person able to stand up for human rights in today's complex world.
He is exactly the kind of man needed as Canada's Head of State.
L'honorable Romeo Dallaire, comme commandant de la MINUAR en Rwanda, comme activiste pour des causes nombreuses comme les enfants soldats, et comme Senateur, s'est montre comme un homme qui defend les droits humaines.
Il est exactement l'homme qu'on a besoin comme Chef D'etat du Canada.
Clayton Miller was found dead on May 6, 1990. He disappeared during a police raid at a secluded outdoor party area called "the nest" in New Waterford, NS on the night of May 4, 1990.
Several people traveled the area of the nest on May 5, 1990 (including the spot on which Clayton's body was discovered on May 6, 1990). Clayton's body was not there. The New Waterford, NS Police deny having the boy in custody from May 4, 1990 to May 6, 1990.
Police photos of the boy's body, documented evidence and years of investigation by the family of Clayton Miller, clearly show the murder of this boy and cover-up afterwards.

A petition to urge Gordon Brown to make a televised address to the nation on climate change, launching a debate on how Britain should respond.
democracy: government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.
The current Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is destroying this country and everything it stands for. He may have been a good(ish) chancellor but as PM he is out of his depth. It is time for a General Election to be called in England.
Gordon Brown was not elected to Prime Minister by the people of England. Therefore he has no right to be there if we live in a democracy.
We believe the population of the United Kingdom, should be allowed the right to use medicinal Cannabis for muscle spasms, pain relief and other medical conditions, where Cannabis is found to help people, without fear of prosecution.
I and many other UK citizens use Cannabis for medicinal reasons. Whether we use Cannabis to help with conditions like; cancer, pain, muscle spasms or other medical conditions where Cannabis is found to help.
We all use for one reason and one reason only, the NHS cannot control our medical condition’s but cannabis does!
We cannot all be wrong, we know we are right, because of cannabis we can now lead a better way of life.
We want to be legal to use Cannabis and help ourselves as the NHS has failed us all.
I and others have had a MP, Dr and a top pain consultant, write to the heads of heath requesting me to be able to get cannabis via the NHS. all application have failed.
Me and many other people, write to the government of the UK asking for the help we desperately need as the NHS has failed us, you never get a reply.
If you call the government you get hung up on. If you fax them you get no reply!
Why is the government of the UK leaving us to rot with medical complications which cannabis improves!
To top it all off with 10 Downing street, I applied for this petition to be placed along with there e-petitions. It got refused 3 times. I even placed a request to contact me via telephone if there was a problem listing it. I never even got a personal email back from the government.
This petition will be delivered to Downing Street on the 25th of June 2008 at 2pm. I’m going to personally guarantee that this petition will get to number 10. It will be hand delivered to prime ministers Gordon browns office in the above date. As the government won’t listen to individuals, we shall go by way of protests and let the government see how many people this law affects.
There are no victims when we smoke cannabis, how can it be a criminal offence!
Did you know, even thou Cannabis has been downgraded to a category c drug in the UK. You can still be jailed for up to 5 years, if you are caught with Cannabis. Even if it’s for personal medicinal use!
This UK Cannabis law is wrong, we all need help. We can help ourselves with Cannabis with miraculous results. But we can not do so without the fear of been prosecuted by the UK’s very own Criminal Prosecution Services!
A lot of people like I, have no choice but to take morphine etc from the NHS, as this is the best pain relief they can give you. Morphine only takes the edge off my neurological pain. Approximately 10% of my pain is reduced by morphine by the end of the day. After taking so much morphine you find yourself passing out hallucinating wildly due to the need of more and more pain relief/ morphine needed.
If I use cannabis for my chronic neurological pain, I feel great mentally, my pain gets reduces by approximately 65% and I’m able to get out of a bed ridden state.
Please come and show us your support at Protest London 2008.
www.protestlondon.co.uk here you can find all the latest information about the protest.
Please don’t come to the London protest to support me. Yes, I am the head of the protest, I’m a voice of thousands of UK sufferers who are still lying in a bed ridden state. These people will not even try Cannabis for there medical conditions, because the UK laws forbid them do so!
These people like me can get some life back, if only they could get hold of and use medicinal cannabis at our own cost!
Cannabis is not suitable for all people, but the people it does help should have the legal rights to use a plant/ weed/ natural product, Cannabis. To treat there medical conditions!
Even if you don’t use cannabis medicinally at the moment, please still come. You may still require the rights to try cannabis legally in a few years time. Who can say who will come down with MS, cancer, neurological pain or even muscle spasms etc. over the next 10-20+ years!
I and others just want the right to be able to use Cannabis to help ourselves to achieve a better way of life. The NHS cannot control our discomforts and pain caused by our medical conditions, so we have to help ourselves with Cannabis.
Some people use cannabis just to sleep and de-stress after a hard days work. This is also classed as medicinal use. If Cannabis is used to help to give someone a better way of life, then they should be allowed the rights to self medicate legally!
All we want and are asking for is the support of the general public to exorcise our own human rights to self medicate using Cannabis, if there is no way the NHS can control our medical conditions.
Medical practitioners who recommend us trying cannabis to help our medical problems even let us know it’s against the law but it may be worth trying. They all cannot be wrong can they? They would back up a lot of medical users as they know how well Cannabis can help with M.S. and other conditions effecting the human body and mind..
Cannabis can be used as a cream as well as smoked, vaporized or eaten. its about time people found out the good medicinal sides of cannabis.
Allowing us to be able to use Cannabis to alleviate our symptoms, if backed up by a medical practitioner or specialist, would be great.
If we where allowed to use it legally we would not have to fund large gangs who grow, distribute and sell the Cannabis. Our local chemist could sell us Cannabis, if we had a license to use medicinal Cannabis legally.
The Cannabis we buy from the streets at extortionate prices, is heavily contaminated. Please even just let us be able to grow our own under license. We would save the NHS money and we would be able to control our symptoms at our own cost. The NHS could even control the sale of Cannabis and the profits made could clear all nhs debts over the following years.
Cannabis is a plant which is roughly grown the same way as tomatoes. It cost a minimal amount to grow and harvest. There is a lot of interest in buying clean cannabis in this country. There are a lot of people suffering because they cannot get out to meet dealers to buy medicinal cannabis
Cannabis costs little to grow and there are a lot of funds to be made for the inland revinue/ nhs, if we can get the medicinal Cannabis laws changed. If chemists where allowed to supply medicinal users if back up by medical professionals etc. then we would all lead a better way of life.
America, Canada, Holland etc. etc. allow people to use cannabis medicinally and allow them to buy it in licensed outlets. Why is the UK so behind with medical advances in cannabis use?
You know it makes sense and the government have ignored us for too long, we will not be ignored for any longer.
We have a medicinal Cannabis protest in London on the wed 25th June 2008, meeting up at Parliament Square london. At 11am.
Please visit www.protestlondon.co.uk if you would like to know more and even join out free forums and see for yourself how Cannabis changes people’s lives for the better.
Please help free medicinal Cannabis users from prosecution.
Please sign our petition which will be handed to our own prime minister of the UK, Mr. Gordon Brown, MP> on the day of the protest at 2pm. The protest is legal and all arranged with police and Downing Street. Full permissions have been acquired to run a legal protest in London’s scota area (high risk/security areas)
Please support us, if you cannot make London but you would still like to support us in some way, on the protest London website you can find links to download.
These consist of copies of our posters, advertising the protest. These can be put up in shop/car windows, local notice boards; hospitals etc. please obtain permission if needed to advertise. All hospitals in the UK need covering; this is where the people who could benefit from cannabis can be found. My local hospital has the posters up and the number of people with severer medical condition attending will be huge from just seeing posters in the outpatient wards etc.
We have a petition link under news, if you have somewhere you can place a hand written petition for people to sign. Please feel free to do print a few copies of and see if you can have a copy even in your corner shop.
Please visit protestlondon.co.uk there you will find out how you can help the protest by donating to our cause.
Protestlondon08 will be a peaceful protest, children and families welcome. Disabilities don’t only affect the people with the medical conditions. The whole family is affected if the medicinal cannabis user is in pain or discomfort! Thank you for all your time and support with medicinal Cannabis legalisation.
Head of www.protestlondon.co.uk
See me on the TV and newspapers soon; you cannot miss me I’m the one with the pink beard!

Petition to Prime Minister Israel Ehud Olmert.
In 2004, Tony Blair, the then Labour Party leader and British Prime Minister, promised the country a referendum on the EU Constitution.
He did this because the EU Constitution altered Britain’s relationship with the European Union and handed over a massive amount of power to Brussels. In 2005, the Labour Party fought and won a General Election with the referendum pledge contained in their manifesto.
Also in 2005, the EU Constitution was rejected by French and Dutch voters, ensuring the proposed constitution was scrapped.
Now, in place of the failed EU Constitution, EU leaders, including Prime Minister Gordon Brown, have signed a Reform Treaty, which is almost identical to the EU Constitution. It also involves a huge amount of powers being transferred to Brussels. However, the Labour Party has gone back on its referendum pledge of 2005 and is refusing to give the people a vote.
We, the UK Independence Party South Sefton Branch, believe that this is a disgrace and a betrayal of the British people. Therefore we are calling on Bootle’s Labour MP to follow the lead of his Labour colleagues on Merseyside, Frank Field MP and Bob Wareing MP, and support a referendum.
In reliance of the Prime Minister's pre-election promises we the undersigned hereby petition the Prime Minister to Ban Live Exports in accordance with ALP`s then stated policy.
The petition of the undersigned protests in the strongest possible terms against the live export of Australian animals and the ALP broken pre-election promises.
The Prime Minister is aware that the ALP pre policy promises aired on ABC Landline regarding the cruel live export trade have been broken by his Government within weeks of the 2007 elections.
During transportation the animals are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior and during slaughter- practices that are illegal in Australia.
When Tony Blair stepped down as Prime Minister, changes were promised during the new regime, but all we got was a Scottish, more portly Tony Blair, in the form of Gordon Brown. So I propose that Gordon Brown step down as Prime Minister, and be replaced by that loveable buffon, Boris Johnson. My reasons being:
1) He can't mess up the country anymore than it already is.
2) His bumbling ways will make Politcal speaches entertaining.
Animal testing is cruel and unnecessary, we can use human cells and computer imaging to find cures a lot better than by testing on animals, because animals and humans react differently to things.
Penicillin is poisonous to a lot of animals, but saves human lives. It is cruel to keep animals in cages and kill them to find something that isn't likely to work.
Many cures for cancer have been found using rats, but have failed to work on humans.
Tony Blair will soon be retiring but who do you want to be Pime Minister?

The health minister of India Mr. Anbumani Ramadoss has been squabbling with Dr. Venugopal, Director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS), New Delhi over the anti-resrvation protest issue.
He has systematically undermined the autonomy of the prestigious institute and demoralized the doctors who fought for a legitimate cause which is their fundamental right.
As the proverbial last straw that broke the camel's back, he has ousted the Director of AIIMS who did not ascribe to his views.
March 19, 2006
Blair has started behaving like the Queen. He seems to think he's above politics now, and representative of some kind of mystic national destiny.
The longer he is allowed to hang around in this present situation, the weirder he's going to get. He has to go. NOW.
Bob Geldof for Prime Minister. He rocks.
For a long time now, we have had John Howard as Australia's Prime Minister. During this time, we have been involved in a war the country did not agree with, we have had the GST (good and services tax) come in, and the list of levys and extra taxes are rising with each day we have John Howard in power.
Mr Howard does not listen to the people, and anyone who wastes taxpayers money and does not make decisions according to what the people want for their country should not be running it.
Please sign this petition, so we can have a Prime Minister who will look after the common good of the country, and so we can have a better Australia for the future.
This petition is to show the Australian Government that we will not tolerate the slaughter of kangaroos.
The following petition will be delivered to the Prime Minister, Mr Tony Blair to illustrate the strong feeling held by the British Public on the subject of hunting with dogs.
It is important that the Government is reminded that there is a large majority of people supporting the Government's Hunting Bill and that a complete and total ban on hunting with dogs is desired.
Without Government support, this popular and successful Bill will be beaten. We now have a real chance to end this cruelty. Please sign our petition.
