This petition is for a Legend of Zelda MMORPG from Nintendo.
A Zelda MMORPG would be an amazing thing and a good use of Nintendos wifi network and emerging online status.
Link's world has been explored extensively over the past several years which provides immense amounts of gaming possibilities.
It would be nice to see integration of systems other than the Nintendo Wii, such as the DS for those on the go away from home. More importantly, a PC version that would integrate with a Wii version online would capture much more market and would be preferable. (I would personally opt for a Wii/PC release like Final Fantasy XI did, being the PC gamer I am, though I still plan on buying a Wii soon)
Again, if it were to be a Wii only title, that would be enough.
(Though, if it were not a Legend of Zelda MMO, a mix of multiple nintendo worlds in an MMORPG would be more versatile than a single game world structure such as pokemon or zelda alone.)
Sign this petition to let Nintendo know that we want a Legend of Zelda MMORPG.

We want the perpetrators of the crimes of killing of people (see website link) put to justice no matter what it takes for the world to do it. These were soldiers who were not arrested for murder in cold blood.

Update May 15, 2006
This petition is now closed. Thanks to all who signed. Thanks to gopetition.com! More people have discovered the terrible news of concentration camps and signed to ask for investigation.
April 14, 2006
Recent reports have revealed several concentration camps in China where tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners are being held and face possible deaththis is an urgent situation that requires attention from the international community, especially the United States.
According to multiple sources, concentration camps similar to the one in Sujiatun, Shenyang, have been set up in provinces across China to detain large numbers of Falun Gong practitioners. In those camps, the authorities have been harvesting the organs of practitioners while they are still alive and cremating the remains to destroy the evidence, then selling the organs for profit. Clearwisdom.net and The Epoch Times exposed these atrocities to the world in early March, and within three weeks, before Chinese officials addressed the issue to foreign media, the practitioners held in underground concentration camp in Sujiatun had been quickly relocated.
According to tips from Mainland China and different investigations, the Chinese communist regime hastily published the "Interim Regulation for Human Organ Transplant Practice" after the Sujiatun concentration camp was exposed. However, the regulation will not take effect until July 1, 2006, and thus we suspect the regime was allowing time to destroy all evidence of the crimes. Investigations have confirmed that hospitals and transplant centers in Tianjin, Heilongjiang, Hunan, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Yunnan, Anhui, Shan'xi, Xinjiang and etc. are operating overtime to perform transplant operations. Hospital staff members told undercover investigators that patients should come in quickly if they want a transplant, as the hospital can find matching organs in as short as one or two days and it will be difficult after this batch of organs is used up.
This information, supported by multiple investigations, leads to one conclusion: A slaughter to eliminate witnesses and victims of the concentration camps is underway. Because of this urgent situation, the Falun Dafa Association has initiated IGFG (Investigate Genocide against Falun Gong in China) where many credible organizations have been and will be invited to join, aiming to go to China to perform an independent investigation of the persecution of Falun Gong in all the labor camps, jails, hospitals and relevant facilities.
After World War II, the international community deeply regretted its failure to stop the Holocaust and solemnly promised "Never Again." We urgently ask you to take immediate action and activate all possible mechanisms to stop this new genocide in Mainland China. In particular, the U.S. government owns satellites that can provide information on the past and present activities in the concentration camps and labor camps etc.
In the meantime, we know that you are meeting with Hu Jintao later this month. We hope that you can bring up the following points:
1. Open up all of China's labor camps/jails/hospitals for international investigation.
2. Allow IGFG to go into China and research the facts of the persecution of Falun Gong.
We believe such requests are fair, just, necessary, and urgent considering the current situation. Every minute of delay will result in irremediable loss of innocent lives and will be a disgrace to the human race!
126. As If on DVD!!

Open letter from the Community of Global Defenders of Truth, Justice, Peace and Tolerance:
The modern world is crying with blood and tears for a universal and sincere recognition of these values. Are not these values enshrined in the Holy Quran and the teachings of our beloved Prophet (saw)?
Over the last 50 years (half a century!) no single human being has supported and defended these values more ardently than the Most Venerable Sheikh ul Islam Muhammed Nazim Adil Haqqani.
He was born in Cyprus and brought up and educated in a great tradition of learning and practice by some of the greatest saintly scholars of Islam, in the last century. In his mission to serve the Almighty Allah Ta'ala, Sheikh Nazim has traveled the world to communicate the message of Truth from the shores of California in the west to those of Japan in the east, and from the confines of the Caucasus in the North to the perimeter of the southern seas in South Africa. His 25 years (1975-2000)of observance of the holy fasting month of Ramadan in Britain, the nightly celebration of Teravih prayers in London, and endless weeks of lecturing, advice and support to countless number of adherents to the faith of Islam, and to non-Muslims, are all testimony to a remarkable life dedicated to preaching Truth, Justice, Peace and Tolerance.
Having now returned to his native Cyprus he continues to dedicate whatever remains of his life to serving the cause of Allah Ta'ala as before. Recent events in TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) regarding the harassment of Sheikh Nazim are deplorable to say the least. His weekly newsletter- one sided A4 printout, 40-50 in number- has worried the TRNC police (in TRNC police forces are under the military forces of mainland Turkey and not the local government minister) so much so that they confiscated a computer on 22-03-2006 and they are now running a full scale investigation which will lead to the prosecution of Sheikh Nazim for allegedly acting against the TRNC!
The message given out in Sheikh Nazim's leaflets do not carry any material that threatens national security or is inflammatory and likely to produce an upheaval. They are simple guidance calling on all people to recognize their creator and not to neglect their duty to Him. The forces responsible for this unfortunate behavior are acting independently of the democratic government of the TRNC.
The government of the TRNC is democratically elected and the whole world has followed with intent the evolution of democracy on mainland Turkey and the TRNC. It is a great credit to the people of these lands that they act as a beacon of democracy to the rest of the Muslim world, which is at present caught up in the throes of change.
The personality and standing of Sheikh Nazim is undoubtedly linked to the march towards freedom and peace of this important geographical and strategic region of the globe. It is sad to note that those who want to hamper this natural evolution of events leading to the welfare and prosperity of society misunderstand the essence of Sheikh Nazim's message.
After more than a century of official atheism, crass materialism, capitalism -you name it- human society across the world inspite of severe dislocations to- day seem to be poised to recognize the role of his creator in his worldly affairs. Many heads of state and government across the world do not hesitate to express publicly their belief in and worship of God.
The message of Sheikh Nazim is pure and simple, namely : Acknowledge Allah Ta'ala as your creator and Master first and the rest will follow. Let government and society show allegiance to the Lord Almighty- the fall out of a sincere and genuine faith in Him can but lead to peace, prosperity and happiness not only in this physical world but most importantly in the next world after death.
No amount of improvement in economic, scientific and technological progress etc is likely to bring peace to a world in dire need of it when this important criterion of Belief in Allah Ta'ala is missing in human affairs.
Sheikh Nazim is highly respected by both governments on the island of Cyprus as an exponent for peace. His role in the last referendum for unification of Cyprus was crucial in enabling the TRNC to project a worldwide and unique image of tolerance. This tolerance in fact is a national characteristic of the TRNC people.
We call on the police and the Turkish military presence in the TRNC to reconsider their position in the light above. May Allah Ta'ala help them to do so.
This open letter is being sent to President and Prime Minister of TRNC, the UN Secretary General and also being supported as a petition on the web site

The Body Shop, set up by Anita Roddick, is famous for it's ethical approach to trading, however in March 2006, L'Oreal (who are part owned by Nestle) decided to enter into take-over talks with the Body Shop.
Nestle are the world's most boycotted company, because of their aggressive tactics when marketing Baby Milk in the developing world.

There is an urgent need to tackle Global Warming. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the air is increasing rapidly. The main greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide has increased it's concentration by 35% since the industrial revolution and its concentration is rising at over half a per cent per year. As a result the earth has warmed by half a degree Celsius in the last thirty years.
The Arctic is warming much faster than the rest of the world.
The warming is caused by the emissions by human society of greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide, which absorb infra red light in the lower atmosphere.
Continuing emissions of these gases are causing a grave danger that the Arctic will warm sufficiently to cause the sea ice to melt completely in late summer leading to a runaway greenhouse event.
The best way of avoiding this future is to make huge reductions in greenhouse gas emissions immediately. There should be an immediate global reduction in the emissions of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, by 35%, but assuming the world will not agree to this Britain should take the lead and make these reductions unilaterally by taxing carbon emissions. Hopefully the rest of the world, especially nations with high per capita emissions of greenhouse gases will follow our example.
Even deeper cuts will have to follow so that global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced over the next few years by 75%.

100 years ago there were 8 different kinds of tigers (subspecies) - there were over 100,000 wild tigers in the world. Today, there are only 5 tiger subspecies left and there are fewer than 7,000 wild tigers in the world.
The main threats to tigers are poaching, loss of habitat, and population fragmentation.
When you sign the TTRT petition you will instantly bee hounered... I will respect anyone who helps tigers. They are my favourite animals ever.

Animals need their fur alot more than we do. We should ban the skinning of animals in all the world.
I don't care about those who think they themselves need the fur when there can be a healthy happy alternative to the skinning of animals.
People should wear cotton and other products. We can just get the fur off llamas or sheep, we don't have to kill the animal to get it.
Thank You For Signing.

136. Pro Gay Marriage
January 1, 2006
In the United Sates, as well as other countries of the world, gay marriage is illegal.
As many people who are against gay marriage say, heterosexual marriage is for reproduction, and of course there is no reproduction in gay marriage. However, nowadays and for many years now, people have not necessarily gotten married to have children, but because they love each other : so why can`t homosexuals have the same happiness through marriage?
Everybody is different and unique but they must be respescted and have the same rights as everyone else. As for religious issues on gay marriage, not everybody in the world is Christian (or any other religion that bans gay marriage), there are about 4,200 religions in this world.
By signing this petition, you are helping the world be a fairer, better place for everybody, regardless of sexual preferences or religion.

This is not your average petition, this is a cry for all Celtic season ticket holders, and Celtic fans around the world.
Stan Petrov is a legend and we must voice our admiration, we MUST sing his name at parkhead.
Why this is not done on a regular basis is puzzling.
But in all seriousness...Misfits is one of the greatest and most influential bands of the 20th century. Their music is beloved by people of all ages all over the world; they've been an inspiration to aspiring musicians all over the world, and yet, they don't have a spot in the Hall of Fame!
How is it possible that a band as global and earth-shaking as the Misfits doesn't get a brief mention between two teenagers, or tiny space on the back of a t-shirt?
This is a petition geared towards getting the Misfits the credit and acclaim they truly deserve.
In the year 2004 AD, a trashy Filipino male supermodel named Shiima Xion debuted in the International Wrestling Cartel. Shiima put on stellar performance after stellar performance in IWC throughout the remainder of 2004 and even more so in 2005. IWC rightfully nominated Shiima as a contender for the "2004 Newcomer of the Year" award.
Shiima won the award in a landslide victory, but somehow ended up sharing that victory with his then arch-rival, Jason Gory (aka angry mime). Rumor has it that Jason Gory simply voted for himself on every computer in his school computer lab...twice! (he erased cookies on every freakin PC) which led to the tie occuring. Shiima, irate and confused, chose to disregard Gory's attempts at stealing his spotlight, and proceeded to declare himself the official Newcomer of the Year.
For whatever reason, IWC promoter Norm Connors booked a match on July 29th, 2005 between Gory and Shiima to determine the undisputed 2004 Newcomer of the Year. Shiima lost to Gory on that night, and unwillingly passed his 2004 Newcomer of the Year torch to the little fairy boy. Since that loss, Shiima Xion has received an IWC World Title shot, IWC Tag Title shots, IWC International Title shots, and wrestled in notable promotions such as Chikara and Pro Wrestling Unplugged. What has the "undisputed" Newcomer of the Year done since winning the award? Well..he won the Tex-Arkana Title for a couple seconds. Enough Said.
Shiima Xion proved in 2005 that he is once again deserving of a nomination for the Newcomer of the Year. Some may say, "Shiima isn't a newcomer anymore, though." Understandable, but one must remember that Shiima Xion is a supermodel. How is that relevent? Simple. A supermodel never gets old, never gets routine, never gets stale...and is ALWAYS in season. Shiima Xion is not last season, nor is he "last year." Shiima Xion is the future, and by signing this online petition, you the fans (aka Shiimarks) are recognizing that you want the future to look bright in IWC. Let's make it happen.
Let's get Shiima Xion a nomination on the 2005 Newcomer of the Year award, and allow our beloved Virgin Slayer to be the only TWO TIME Newcomer of the Year in the history of professional wrestling.

HB 3773, The Mother Of All Anti-Life Bills: PLEASE OPPOSE IT!
Dear healthcare workers, citizens of the Philippines, and concerned friends around the world,
As medical workers and/or people who care about our country (the Philippines), we encourage you to help us in the fight against a frightening population control bill that has been proposed in our Congress: House Bill 3773, "The Responsible Parenthood and Population Management Act of 2005".
The time is short, since there will be a vote for the bill very soon, and the stakes are high. Many people are outraged by this proposition, and by educating as many citizens as possible about the dangers and exposing the deceit, we might have a chance to defeat it. If you agree that the situation is dire, you are strongly encouraged to examine the following petition AGAINST HB 3773. Then, please sign your name and forward it to as many people as possible.
The petition and list of names will be sent to our Filipino Congressmen on behalf of healthcare workers, concerned citizens, and ALL people of faith -- Catholics, other Christians, and Muslims alike. The congressmen have been bombarded with misinformation, and many of them are being led astray. Help them to realize the dangers that the bill poses to the life, health, and soul of our people, particularly Catholics and healthcare professionals. Help them to see that the world is watching and that knowledgeable, highly-respected Christians both here and abroad are deeply troubled by this development. And most importantly, please keep praying that we can defeat this insidious bill.
For more information about the bill, please see the following resource:
Also, see how our friends in the USA are joining their voices for this cause:
Thank you for reading, and God bless you!
This is a petition to rename W Washington Dr. in Cairo, Georgia (The Heights), to Willie C. Harris Dr. in honor of his outstanding accomplishments as a professional baseball player (2005 World Series Champions Chicago White Sox) and as a role model to the community.

In November 2005, the United Nations will meet to discuss the Kyoto Protocol at the 11th Conference of the Parties (CoP-11). This meeting will also be the first time that the UN has met after the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol (MoP-1).
At this landmark event, we would like the UN to recognize the concerns of Youth of the Arctic.
Declaration on Climate Change from Youth of the Arctic.
We, youth from the Circumpolar North, realize that the world is facing a threat unlike anything ever experienced before in human history. Here in the Arctic, where the impacts of climate change are happening at an accelerated rate, we feel our physical environment, our culture, and our spirituality, are being disrupted. Sea ice is melting, coastlines are exposed and degrading, and species are at risk. Communities are being forced to give up land based traditions and Traditional Knowledge is being lost. Indigenous Peoples 'ways of being' continue to be threatened.
Our ecosystems are disturbed; we are vulnerable.
The science surrounding our changing climate has now existed for the same amount of time that we have been alive. Arguing the validity of climate change science is no longer worthwhile- it is now time to act - and act with conviction.
We are supporting research on impacts, mitigation and adaptation to climate change. We are encouraging our peers and our communities to become informed and engaged. Individually, we are taking responsibility for our actions. By reducing our personal greenhouse gas emissions, engaging in activities with lower environmental impacts, and making conscious choices, we are reflecting the world we want to live in.
We are challenging fossil fuel development such as the proposed drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, United States, the proposed Mackenzie Pipeline Project in Northwest Territories of Canada and oil drilling in Lensky region of Russia's Sakha Republic. We see the importance in taking steps now to lay a foundation for change that will reach far into the future.
The global community has come a long way in a short time. Thank-you to the United Nations for its Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Kyoto Protocol is a step in the right direction. Thank you for the considerable work carried out by the International Panel on Climate Change. Thank you to the Arctic Council for the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment and to Snowchange for their conference on Northern Indigenous and Local Community Observations of Climate and Ecological Change. These provide critical insight and raise international awareness about the situation of the North.
However, we are concerned that the work being done is not enough. We are concerned that science is not being met with awareness, and plans are not being met with action. More effort needs to be invested by individuals, communities, and governments, if the world is to reduce or reverse the impacts of climate change. We are concerned that the public at large is still unaware and uncertain of the threats of climate change. How can people be motivated to take positive action unless they understand the urgency of the situation?
The economy should no longer come before health and well being. Full cost accounting, or more socially and ecologically based accounting mechanisms should be developed and integrated. Long-term vision needs to be incorporated into climate change response plans, recognizing that political and business timelines are too short.
We would like to help you move forward with a multi-generational, multi-disciplinary vision. We will lobby for climate change to be taught in schools so that today's children are climate change literate and are armed with the tools to act. We will continue to inform the public about climate change and its effects. We will learn to adapt to climate change in a way that considers the impacts of our solutions on the seven generations ahead of us. Our generations are linked, just as the Arctic is linked to the rest of the world. Choices made in the present will exponentially affect the future.
We are willing to make a difference and we challenge you to do the same.
We call on you to help us build the economic, political, and cultural infrastructure necessary for a sustainable future.
We offer you our vision of a strong North and a positive world.
If you protect the Arctic, you protect the world.
146. Tag team boxing
Boxing is a well known sport world wide. There are childeren who compete in the sport so why not introduce tag team boxing?
It would make boxing longer and more enjoyable for people.
Recently, Hurricane Catrina hit New Orleans in USA.
At that time, my friend was there. We have no contact with him...
Global Warming caused droughts in Sth England, heat deaths in Spain, forest fires in Portugal, hurricanes in Birmingham and USA and floods spread out around the world.
We MUST do something about global warming... something Now!
Why should wealthy bank accounts build up so much interest and give the owners so much more fortune than they need?
Why should big name business amass such a huge amount of money that it must be calculated to the SECOND for the profit to be understood? Money today is out of control, the rich get richer and the poor are left miles behind with no hope.
Big Charities and the people of Africa lose out on millions of pounds because the lottery is paying money in the wrong places. The world now, is an unfair and cruel place to live, where money is forced to become the center of everyone's attension.
We are starting to realise that the only way to get good standards of living and keep up with todays times, is to 'fight' for money the majority of people deserve.
Update: September 1, 2007
Please sign the updated petition at the following link Online petition - Support UN Membership for Taiwan.
The TECRO Press Release promoting the new petition can be found here.
The Republic of China (Taiwan) is a free and peace-loving state, and its democratically elected government is the only one that represents the interests and wishes of the people of Taiwan.
Taiwan is the only nation not represented in the global assembly. The United Nations' exclusion of Taiwan violates the principles and spirit of the UN Charter, in particular the fundamental principle of universality, and of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Taiwan and its 23 million people are capable of making significant contributions to many UN efforts around the globe. Taiwan is also eager to do its part to combat such international problems as regional conflict, terrorism, drug trafficking, organized crime, and environmental degradation. However, Taiwan is denied an important means of collaborating with international partners. This unnecessarily complicates the task at hand and hampers efforts to deal with such critical issues.
Moreover, as we enter the tenth anniversary of the 1996 Taiwan Strait Missile Crisis, the recent missile tests by North Korea have once again raised grave concerns throughout the international community. From this perspective, Taiwan’s allies have expanded the scope of areas with security concerns in the peace proposal to include all East Asian countries rather than just the Taiwan Strait. They stress that certain countries in the region engage in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as well as missile deployment or testing, thereby escalating regional tension and affecting world peace.
Taiwan is a democratic nation that respects human rights, freedom, and peace. Taiwan meets all the requirements of UN membership. It makes little sense that Taiwan is ignored when considering the fact that Taiwan serves as a model for freedom and democracy in the Asia-Pacific and a beacon of hope for those living under communist rule. To safeguard peace, the United Nations has to facilitate the necessary dialogue between Taiwan and the People's Republic of China.
Please support Taiwan and help it gain representation in the United Nations.
To all the parents who are overprotective and don't understand what problems we deal with and what we wanna do. We want to have fun and have a little freedom.
This is to all the parents in the whole world who don't allow their kids to do anything. I don't care if it's just one little overprotective thing, I want anyone who has a overprotective parent story to sign this and please tell the whole world if you want.
Parents need to ease off a little more. How are we going to grow up?? Why don't they trust us? Why do they think we are doing everything wrong? And why does the other sibling or friend get to do whatever they want... and get everything they want? Any of these stories could be you.
Tell it. Tell it to the world, and let these people know.
