    • Save the Awa tribe from extinction.

      The Awa tribe in Maranhao in North East Brazil are one of the worlds last hunter gatherer tribes. They have only 335 survivors, 100 whom have never had contact with the developed world.

      They are being massacred by gunmen who work for logging companies and ranchers. Chased off their land and shot in the back upon fleeing.

      It is our problem because we created it. In 1982 The European Economic Community with money from the World Bank set about extracting Iron Ore from the area, sending 13.6 million tonnes per year for 15 years back to Europe. The development was…

      • Re nationalise the water industry - who's rain is it anyway? Why should anyone own something which is fundamental to life?

        Water is essential to our existence.
        Water is in short supply and the demand ever growing.
        Water supply is not something to make a profit from - it is a more vital need than even a decent health service.
        Access to water is a human essential and a human right. Why is water privately owned in the UK (and anywhere else) by companies that put profit before service? Only the state can coordinate service investment and guarantee equal supplies across the country.
        Some suggest wars will be fought this century over water. It is too important to leave in the…

        • The British government's attempt to stall the legitimate claims of Kenyan survivors of torture.

          The British government is attempting to deny compensation to survivors of British torture and sexual violence against Kenyans during the Mau Mau rebellion. Despite the fact that nobody now in government, the civil service or the armed forces has any connection with the crimes against humanity that were perpetrated then, the government is trying to evade responsibility using technical arguments. The hypocrisy of this position is clear. The government should take a clear lead and accept that a previous administration made grave errors and agree to reasonable compensation. This is not only justice for the victims but a stand for…

          • Public funds to be made available for inquest into death of Jimmy Mubenga

            Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan national, died while being 'restrained' by G4S security guards on a deportation flight in October 2010. Eyewitnesses on the plane heard him complaining that he could not breathe, crying for help and shouting: "They're going to kill me."

            The Crown Prosecutions Service decided in June 2012 not to bring manslaughter charges against the guards. Lord Rathbotham (former chief inspector of prisons - now a crossbench peer) has called this decision 'perverse', and demanded that public funds be made available for an inquest to properly establish what caused the death of Jimmy - a former student leader…

            • NHS protests. Publicise the censorship that has prevented any mention of the NHS protests.

              Our main campaign should be publicising the way that the electorate were prevented, by the censorship of the whole of the media, from knowing about any campaigns opposing the government's NHS proposals. They have removed our democratic right to be heard.

              The censorship was universal over the whole of the media: No mention in any of the national papers, no mention of it on any TV or radio channel - even the handing to Lord Owen of the 38Degrees huge petition of nearly 600,000 was not published any where . My letters to the local newspaper were not published. It's…

              • Stop water flouridation - bad science, toxic mass-medication & the new threat under the Health & Social Care Act 2012

                See, as a hub,
                http://bit.ly/JFFBdd

                There are some small local campaigns, losing the battle (e.g. Southampton)

                Flouridation is bad science, we have been lied to.

                Flouride compounds dumped in drinking water are toxic products not only of the phosphate industry but also from aluminium production.

                Water flouridation - toxic dumping into the human population - saves them a fortune in toxic waste disposal costs.

                As American cities are waking up to the false (and expensive) science of flouridation, they are stopping the mass-medication of their water, and the companies that need to get rid of flouride waste are looking at…

                    • Join urgent campaign stopping Lal Bibi killing herself after being raped and tortured by Afghan police who resist arrest

                      Her family bravely took her to get justice but she will be seen as dishonoured and killed if her rapists are not brought to justice. Hamid Karzai has ordered arrests but local officials are waiting for the international pressue to die down and not arresting the culprits.

                        • Stop the convicted rapist, Mike Tyson, appearing at shows across UK and glamourising his notoriety

                          In 1992 Mike Tyson was convicted for raping an 18 year old woman and sentenced to 6 years in prison. Yet the Guildhall Portsmouth has chosen Tyson as a guest of honour at a dinner event later this year with tickets costing up to £150. That's £150 for the pleasure of spending an evening with a rapist.

                          By inviting a convicted rapist to speak at one of the leading venues in Portsmouth the Guildhall goes against the hard work that the city has undertaken to ensure that survivors of rape feel valued, safe and believed. Aurora New Dawn, as the…

                          • Kick sexism out of sport

                            The Olympics is one of the few sporting events where women's sport gets similar media exposure to the men. Let that coverage be about women's success, not about how we look, whether we're married etc, etc. This Olympics has shown what British women and men can do to inspire a nation. Women should not have to deal with crass remarks or questions, at their most extreme about their gender identity itself. Let's emulate the 'kick racism out of...' campaign and support women purely for their athleticism and skills.

                                The government plans to force ISPs and telecoms companies to give GCHQ real-time access to email, web, SMS and telephone traffic metadata without GCHQ needing a warrant. This would let GCHQ spy on the electronic communications of anyone in the UK, without the due process of a court order.
