  1. Illegal EU Caged Egg Imports from 2012

    From 1st January 2012, it will be illegal to keep hens in battery cages anywhere in the European Union. However, despite having had 12 years to implement the regulations laid down by the Laying Hens Directive 1999, some EU member states will fail to reach the deadline and are seeking an extension for their farmers. This could result in millions of hens being kept in battery cages illegally, and millions of battery eggs entering the UK illegally, potentially hidden in processed foods such as ready meals, pasta, cakes etc.

    British farmers have invested £400m to comply with this legislation. However,…

    • Stop Greyhound Exports to China

      The Irish Government plans to export Racing Greyhounds to China, a country which has one of the worst Human & Animal Rights Records in the world.
      As an Irish Citzen & UK resident, I am appalled & embarassed to be Irish.
      I appeal to all members to support a petition to present to the UK government in order for them to put pressure on the Irish government to abandon these plans.
      What with the first ever upcoming visiit by the Queen, (a well-know dog & animal lover), to the Republic of Ireland shortly, an expose would be greatly embarassing to…

      • Call on the UK government to support women's rights in Afghanistan

        When the UK entered Afghanistan 10 years ago, they promised to improve the lives of Afghan women. While some progress has been made, there is growing concern that women's rights will be left out. When it comes to discussions around transition and peace, women are being marginalised and ignored. Ask the UK government to make good on their promises to Afghan women and ensure that they are included at the upcoming Bonn conference on Afghanistan and that the promotion, protection and realisation of women’s rights are absolutely central to the discussion.

        By using diplomatic pressure, funding Afghan women's organisations to…

        • Repeal US-UK Extradition Treaty, & Ban Extradition without Contestable Prima Facie Evidence

          The US-UK extradition treaty (signed secretly under Queen's prerogative) and the Extradition Act (2003) effectively remove all protection from UK citizens against unjust extradition. Despite being denounced as an anathema to justice by Liberty, the ACLU and eminent legal consensus in the UK, and despite a series of resulting high-profile injustices, the Treaty & the Act are currently undergoing very expensive 'review' by the government to decide whether this blatantly unfair legislation is fair or not. The law as it stands means that anyone can be extradited to the USA and the recently publicised brutality of its prison system without…

          • Freeze UK-based Mubarak family assets

            Urge the UK government to follow Switzerland's lead in freezing UK-based assets of the Mubarak family. The Guardian reports that Mubarak family fortune could reach $70 billion, some of which may be held in HBOS accounts, part of the Lloyds group which is 41% owned by the UK government.

            That money must not be allowed to leave the UK and should be returned to Egypt in a proper and timely fashion..

            Former foreign office minister Lord Malloch-Brown has urged the UK to act:

            "I think it would be a very prudent thing to do to freeze suspicious accounts here because…

            • 100k signatures in support of Wikileaks

              Tory policy on “Cleaning up politics” states that "will ensure that any petition that secures 100,000 signatures will be eligible for formal debate in Parliament”. I would like 38 Degrees to have a campaign whichs seeks 100,000 signatures expressing support for Wikileaks in exposing the endemic cynicism curruption in national governments, especially the US, UK and Russia.

              • Post Concussion Syndrome (P.C.S & P.P.C.S) Awareness in the UK - This hidden Epidemic is REAL!

                Having had PPCS for 4 years following an accident, I realised that barely nobody in the public health services (NHS) or public arena is taking notice, or ready to tackle the hidden epidemic. Over 75% of cases are misdiagnosed & treatment is only available privately at great cost. We need to change something! Please invite friends so we can spread awareness & get action for the forgotten sufferers of this 'Hidden/Invisible Disability' by getting confirmed action on a wide scale from Government & NHS... Although this is also an international issue effecting people worldwide! Please vote & help us?

                  We are careering toward a war with Iran. While America beefs up it's arms in the area, provokes Iran wth verbal threats of action and while it supports the villainisation of Iran the media are trying to convince us that the war is just.
                  Let's stand up and say no to a war with Iran at all costs. By diplomacy only.

                  • Drop Egypt's Debt

                    Hosni Mubarak pillaged Egypt’s economy, and leaves office with $70 billion in his family’s bank account. But he also bequeaths $30 billion in debt to the Egyptian people. This debt is illegitimate - much of it being run up to buy arms and other Western goods which benefited the regime and kept it in power. The UK is 'owed' £100 million by Egypt, but the British Government won't tell us how the loans were used.

                    People should not pay unjust ‘dictator debts’, nor should they pay debts whose origins are kept secret.

                    - The British Government must immediately come clean…

                    • Plastic bottles, the curse of our time?

                      A “plastic soup” of waste floating in the Pacific Ocean is growing at an alarming rate and now covers an area twice the size of the continental United States, scientists have said. And this isn't the only one. Is this the curse of our time?

                      Plastic bottles are at the heart of the problem. Manufactured, filled and then left for society to dispose of, they are everywhere. But imagine if the producers of plastic bottles were responsible for them even after we had consumed what was inside them. Imagine if we all sent our bottles back to the company that…

Apparently there was 150 people there, if I had know I would have gone too. We need to get more involved and get something done. I'd like to start a petition to get 100,000's on signatures to take to No 10 and the Chinese Embassy to SAVE this graceful creatures from extinction. We need to educate people that the herbal remedies do not work and owning ivory a crime. I don't know…

Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and their proxy militias are the primary exploiters of coltan in the Congo, which is bought by multinational corporations, whom the UN has described as "the engine of the conflict in the DRC." The war in the Congo has claimed an estimated three million lives, either as a direct result of fighting or because of disease and malnutrition. More than 8,300 women were raped during fighting in 2009, and…

The worst hit are actually the big sites such as Youtube or Facebook where the moderators will be legally required to block any information in which there could be piracy. This could include news stories copied off the BBC website or a homemade video of a gig which you went…

We need to let them know that the majority of the public are against this and wont vote them in at the next elections if they are not fair and just. We need to know that our future leaders look after our own society rather than being at the beck and call of the USA and Israelies

                                  Regardless of whether or not you think prisoners should have a vote, we should be able to choose for ourselves with out fearing repercussions from the EU.

                                  • The secret immigration policy - EU/India Free Trade Agreement (FTA) Mode 4

                                    British domestic policy is unsurprisingly being formulated to fit with the EU's external international trade agenda. This broader policy affects people's lives here, particularly their employment and that of their children and grandchildren in the future. Yet information on this broader picture, the parts of EU trade policy that will affect people most, is kept from them.

                                    A very relevant and major feature of EU trade policy is the concession that allows transnational corporations to bring workers into the EU. In tradespeak this is called 'Mode 4'.

                                    The EU is including Mode 4 concessions (moving workers across borders) in all…

                                    • Call on UK Government to support a political settlement in Syria rather than sending more arms to fuel the conflict

                                      The Middle East is already a hotbed of conflict - much of which is due to Western wars (Iraq, Afghanistan) and support for repressive regimes (Saudi, UAE, Bahrain, Israel). The British government should be seeking a political solution to the conflict in Syria, not supporting either side and certainly not sending arms or other support to either side.

                                      • End the Nuclear Weapons-armed world.

                                        The World Wars are over. The Cold War is over. Nuclear Weapons were the shiny new toys of the last century.

                                        Let this century see their eradication.

                                        Ban ALL Nuclear Weapons EVERYWHERE - not just in those countries we don't want to have them.
