Weed killer Glyphosate – petition

Please sign: a petition to help prevent the EU from approving glyphosate for another 10 years — Monsanto’s infamous weedkiller chemical used in Roundup. We only need the governments of Germany, France and Italy to stand up to the agrochemical lobby and vote NO.

Will you take a look and sign too: https://actions.sumofus.org/a/2017-eu-glyphosate-license-vote?sp_ref=335841558.99.183226.e.0.2&rid=18321081&source=mlt

Petition against homelessness by 38Degrees

Sign the petition here: http://bit.ly/2xxuEKy

Today the government’s been accused of fuelling a huge rise in homelessness. It’s splashed all over the news.

A report from the government’s own spending watchdog says it’s because they’re refusing to increase the support they give when people are struggling to pay their rent. Some families were already having to go for days without dinner just to scrape by. But now, with rent rising, they’re being made homeless.

Right now, the Chancellor Philip Hammond is preparing his big budget speech. He could choose to sort this problem out by raising housing benefit to meet the cost of living. But he’ll only act if he knows hundreds and thousands of us expect him to. If we pile on the pressure with a huge petition now it could push him to decide to end the shocking rise in homelessness.

If you believe everyone deserves a roof over their head, will you join me and sign the petition right now?

… and this one: hundreds of local volunteers sprucing up the riverside outside the new American Embassy on 12 Sept. Perhaps this explains Wandsworth’s modest Council Tax bills!
