• Support Occupy Tampa in Kiley Gardens!
    We ask that you allow Occupy Tampa their First Amendement Right to protest wherever and whenever they want rather than going by codes and permits. No police interference unless riots break out. We ask that the Tampa City Council and Mayor Bob Buckhorn support Occupy Tampa by giving them access to Kiley Gardens as a space to gather and assemble and promote public dialogue on issues that affect us all.

  • Tell DOJ to Block Discriminatory Voter ID Laws
    The largest rollback in voting rights in over a century is now underway. A wave of restrictive laws passed in 13 states will mean that next year as many as 5 million Americans could find voting difficult, and even impossible. With even more states considering such legislation, the voting rights of over 21 million Americans nationwide could come under attack. In 2011, 38 states proposed legislation designed to make it harder to vote at every step of the process. New laws restrict the forms of ID allowed to vote, reduce early voting, place restrictions on voter registration, and deny voting rights to Americans with criminal records who have paid their debt to society—measures that disproportionately impact African Americans, Latinos, senior citizens, people with disabilities, and young voters. Sign this petition to Attorney General Eric Holder asking the Justice Department to enforce the Voting Rights Act and intervene to stop discriminatory voting laws. Visit advancementproject.org for more information on protecting our voting rights.

  • Reclassify Cannabis
    President Nixon and the FDA misclassified cannabis as a Schedule I forbidden drug (same scheduling as heroin) in 1970. This has never been corrected and cannabis cannot become federally legal until it is re-scheduled by Congress or the US Attorney General.

  • Raw Milk allowance
    Pasteurization kills the natural enzymes in milk making it not only less digestible but robbing us the amount of enzymes our bodies need to break down food, so it is crucial and an undeniable right of the citizens of this country to be allowed to buy Raw Milk, from Free Range-Grass Fed cows who have not received any Hormones or Antibiotics and for that milk to be found in every supermarket.

    The right to vote is fundamental. Without it, the true voice of the people cannot make their voices heard. The Republican-backed House Bill 108-88 that would require voters to show photo identification at the polls will SOON be voted on by the Senate. Republicans claim fraud as the reason for this bill. Their real aim is to make it difficult or impossible for elderly, black, Hispanic, youth, and our soldiers overseas, many of whom are Democrats and are less likely to have photo ID, to vote.

    Every member of the United Nations, including the United States, is party to one or more of the nine major human rights treaties which protect virtually every child, woman or man in the world. The United States is also a member nation of other organizations which have created their own treaties or conventions on human rights, such as the Organization of American States and the Council of Europe. Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as Supremacy of National Law, establishes the U.S. Constitution, U.S. treaties, and federal statutes as "the supreme law of the land" and therefore dictates that every individual state must comply with international treaties signed by the United States. The United States ratified the Council of Europe's Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons in 1983. The Convention allows for foreigners who have been convicted of any crime to be transferred to prisons or facilities in their home countries to serve out the remainder of their sentences in order to promote social reintegration at the conclusion of their prison term. The success of these human rights treaties in the United States depends on local authorities' familiarity with the treaties and adherence to them. Unfortunately, Governor Jindal, a case has been pending in Louisiana for over three years that evidences your administration’s failure - be it due to lack of awareness, neglect of duty, or blatant disregard - to adhere to the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons. Canada has been requesting the transfer of Scott Meyers, a prisoner at Angola State Prison, but the requests have been ignored. Mr. Meyers, born Wilfrid Allan Sutherland in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, was stolen from his mother’s arms at the age of four during the Canadian “60s Scoop” effort to eradicate his native Aboriginal Cree Nation tribe. He was “adopted out” to a New Orleans family, and was raised there, never forgetting the day he was ripped away. There is no doubt about the psychological impact that this horror had on Mr. Meyers and how this experience contributed to the events that led to his incarceration. His family in Canada has been located, and both the family and Mr. Meyers would like him to be transferred to a prison near them to serve out his time, so that he may finally have a chance to meet and get to know the family he lost so long ago. Former Governor Foster abided by the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons back in 2001 when he signed off on the transfer of Ms. Terese Terre to France. Governor Foster no doubt acted under LA Code of Criminal Procedure, Title XXX, Chapter 1, Article 892.3, which authorizes the Governor of Louisiana to act on behalf of the State and to consent to the transfer of such convicted offenders under the provisions of Article IV., Section 5(A) of the Constitution of Louisiana. We, the signers of this petition, implore you to abide by all international human rights laws which Louisiana is a party to, and take IMMEDIATE notice of this case by acting quickly and humanely and making sure that this man is returned home as dictated by those laws.
