  1. A ban on glass bottles in city centre pubs and clubs

    www.pop-campaign.co.uk and www.facebook.com/bottlestopnow are campaigning for glasses to be replaced with polycarbonate glass and glass bottles to be replaced with PET bottles in night clubs and late night bars in towns and city centres.

    In the early hours of 4th April 2012, Phil Sherriff was the victim of an attack at a corporate event in London. He was stabbed in the left side of the neck with a bottle severing the two main arteries. He lost five pints of blood. Despite the Royal London Hospital team's best efforts, the blood loss caused severe brain damage, which, over four days, led…

    • fairness, justice and equality for all British state pensioners

      All people contribute towards the National Insurance scheme under exactly the same rules.

      All people qualify for their state pension under exactly the same rules, based on years of NI contributions.

      When it comes time to pay the state pension different rules are applied depending on where you happen to live.

      If you live in the UK and in 40 overseas countries, your state pension is uprated for inflation each year.

      If you live in mainly Commonwealth countries your state pension is frozen at the rate at which it is first paid, or as at the date of migration. This…

      • Legal Aid

        The government has announced that it is to restrict the availability of legal aid for certain kinds of case.

        This not only represents the latest attack on the poor by a Government of millionaires but also prejudices the Article 6 rights of those of limited means to achieve a fair hearing.

        • A campaign to stop the abolition of Disability Living Allowance - the measure of civilised society.

          DLA is by the DWP's own admission at least 20% under claimed and maybe as much as 40%. It is subject to a misinformation campaign by the Condems and their allies in the gutter press. Its abolition and replacement is nothing but a cost cutting exercise by the Condems and will cause huge suffering to disabled people and their carers. The abolition for DLA for those in care homes is positively cruel and should be opposed by everyone with a social conscience.

We, the signatories of this petition, call on the coalition government in Westminster, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Scottish Parliament to impose a moratorium, demanded by environmental groups and geology experts in the field, on shale gas, and on the related coal bed methane extraction industry, at least until the results of studies here, in other countries in Europe and in the US have been properly evaluated. Such moratoria…

            • Campaign to stop a waste incinerator being built in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.

              Norfolk County Council have voted to build a waste incinerator in Kings Lynn despite a referendum in which 93% (65,000) voters said NO to the proposal, Kings Lynn Borough Council; MP, Henry Bellingham and local residents are against this for economic, environmental and health reasons. The people of West Norfolk want our voices heard and listened to in what is supposed to be a democratic country. http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/politics/incinerator_debate_latest_norfolk_county_council_awards_contract_1_821509

              • HS2 - High Speed Rail Link. We dont need to spend £160m per mile

                Costing over £160m per mile, the proposed HS2 High Speed Rail Link will not only help further bankrupt our country but will slash and scar our countryside, leaving a permanent reminder to our children of politics gone mad and a dynasty of greed of gargantuan proportions.

                • Organise a huge march against the Health & Social Care Bill

                  The only thing keeping the bill on track is Cameron's support. The Tories are terrified that this will become their Poll Tax. Let's make it that. If enough people come out on the streets, they will drop the bill like a hot coal. This march could be organised with the help of other organisations.

                    I work in a wildlife hospital & we deal with wild animals with horrific injuries after being caught in snares. We have many photos to prove the damage done by these inhumane cheese-wires. Domestic pets have also been severely injured by snares.
                    A ban on their use is long overdue.

                    • Petition calling for the dropping of charges of aggravated tresspass against Ukuncut members

                      On March 26th 138 UKuncut activists were charged with aggravated tresspass after staging an entirely peaceful protest in Fortnum & Mason. At the very least this has huge significance for the future of peaceful direct action and at it's worst is political policing. UKuncut has played a prominent role in bringing corporate tax avoidance into mainstream political debate and has embarressed the government as well as the powerful corporations they've targeted. The arrest of UKuncut members is an attempt to associate them with the "violence" that occured and to vilify the group in the minds of the general public, and…

                        Rights to access the English countryside, including waterways, should more closely resemble those of Scotland. The land should be free for all to enjoy and use responsibly, it works in Scotland, it can work min England too.

                        • Against forced academies and the privatisation of our education system by stealth

                          Our government is forcing schools to become academies against the majority consensus. They are ignoring parents, schools and local authorities. They are using bullying tactics to hand schools to academy chains, run by major Tory donors. They are not only forcing failing schools but good ones and allowing these chains to cherry pick good schools to give academy policy credibility. Parents all over the UK are starting to organise themselves. 'Parents Against Forced Academies' are calling for a public enquiry into the bullying and likely corruption endemic to forced academy process. Decisions about handing over our public schools to academy…

This is not about cultural difference; this is about basic respect – as set down and signed by Stephen Hawking at the 2012 Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness- of the right of all living creatures to a minimum standard of welfare.

                            • Resist the Criminalisation of Squatting

                              On 13th of July 2011, the government published a consultation paper:"Options
                              for dealing with Squatting". The consultation period ends on 5th October
                              2011 so we need to act NOW to be heard.

                              The proposals outlined would affect a much wider community than those who
                              identify as squatters;

                              - tenants would be at risk from unscrupulous landlords,

                              - worker and student occupations would be illegal, as would peace and climate camps.

                              - Police discretion is considered as a way of determining who is or is not a squatter

                              - violent and forcible eviction of squatters would be legal

                              - Anyone who…

                              • The coalition "are considering" assessing children in their DLA shake up.

                                In the DLA reform white paper they are "considering" reassessing disabled children, as well as adults. Not only do they want to cut the benefits bill by chucking of disabled adults they want to do the same to children. They have also sneeked in an item on carers allowance "they are looking at it" ie going to means test or abolish. In this proposal you also have the right to "ask" for an appeal. Not saying you will get an appeal, but you have the right to ask for one. Picking on the disabled and vulnerable is discusting.

                                  We’re looking into a technical problem with the suggest a campaigns system.

                                  Last night we merged this with another DLA campaign after being asked to by the people who had originally created the suggestions. This follows on from previous problems we had with merging campaigns.

                                  Unfortunately last night there was a problem with the system and when we merged the campaigns thousands of votes were removed from the total.

                                  I’m really sorry this happened. We’re looking into this and trying to sort it out.

                                • A Campaign for an English Parliament - Political Equality for England

                                  Political Equality for England. Which would allow people in England a far greater democratic involvement in English politics, and allow for a far greater and more direct accountability by MPs to people in England.

                                  Scotland has its own Parliament, Wales has its own National Assembly, Northern Ireland its own Parliament/Assembly. ...Yet England doesn't have its own Parliament that deals with matters specific to England.

                                  This would stop Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish MPs voting on English only matters. English MPs are not allowed to vote on matters specific to these other countries.

                                  • Support EFVI.EU - Fight against draconian legislation that only benefits the tobacco and pharmaceutical industries.

                                    We have a European citizens initiative www.efvi.eu in place so we can get a seat at the table to negotiate a fairer deal on the use of e-cigarettes, directives put in place on the 26th of February have effectively banned all ecig products on the market today with each member state having to put these policies in force by 2016, this directive will only put public health at risk and deny smokers the use of a scientifically proven safer alternative. The EU regulations are so disproportionate that it will only be the large multinational tobacco and pharmaceutical companies that will…

                                        Freegle is an online network of 1.1million people giving away their unwanted goods to people in their local area who can make use of that stuff. Keeps usable items from going to landfill. Lowers pointless consumerism. Builds community spirit. Everything given away or received via Freegle is FREE. There are 280 Freegle groups across the UK run by local volunteers. Freegling encourages waste reduction; benefits time and money poor individuals, organisations and businesses; lowers local authorities expenditure and helps save the planet all at the same time :-)

                                        • Stop the proposed closure of Farm Terrace Allotment in Watford

                                          The outline planning in 2007 of the Health Campus in Watford excluded the closure of this allotment. A change has taken place and this historic (1896) terraced allotment is now in danger
