It's incredible that our petition has catalysed a national movement for change - a movement that will stand up to local authorities and support the voices of those who are not often heard. At a time when many of us feel hopeless in the face of continuing austerity and welfare cuts, to me that's real proof of the power of ordinary people to come together and change society for the better.
Busking at its heart is about democratic access to public space. A busker turns up on a public highway and performs for the passersby, and they can either show their appreciation or just walk on by. Busking has the capacity to create a sense of urban community and make public spaces more welcoming. I quickly understood that Liverpool's plans were a direct attack on all that was great about the busking tradition and so I set up my first petition on Change.org...
When Change.org launched in the UK, we did so with the belief that by giving anyone the campaigning tools that big organisations have, people would win change on their own terms. But we've also learnt that when small campaigns come together they are greater than the sum of their parts.
If the government bands together to engage young people, the entire country will be in much better shape for a brighter future. An engaged generation will go out of create sustainability for the country to assure it remains as rewarding as its current state and head towards a Better Britain.
In a city where millions are reported to be only one payday away from losing their homes, I don't believe criminalising homelessness is right. We need to convince Hackney Council to reconsider the terms of its PSPO and remove the references to rough sleeping from it.
A revolution in technology over the past decade has shaken up business models underpinning everything from how we share and consume news and ideas, to how we shop or find a date. We live in an on-demand world, and as we enter the final weeks of the 2015 election, we're seeing how democracy is also being reshaped by the web.
I am grateful that Tesco has done the right thing and hope it, and other pension companies take the opportunity to improve their urgency, communication and compassion in handling situations in these circumstances in the future.
This election is set to be the closest in decades. Polls predict that no one will win with an outright majority and every day there is a new horse to back. And in all of this noise it can feel like there is no way of getting your voice heard - the issue you care about out there. Well that's not true. Every day at Change.org we see people getting the issues that matter to them onto the political agenda and into the news. Here are five ways you can get yourself heard during the election, whether you decide to vote or not.
Now that George Osborne has shown his support, we need to persuade the rest of Europe to stop taxing periods too before we start to see some real changes... Together we can stop the sanitary tax that has marginalised issues traditionally associated with women, damaged the accessibility of a vital item and jeopardised the sexual health of millions across the world.
We have a tradition in Britain of caring for people all around the world and the response to Jimmy's story shows British compassion at its best. All we need now is Theresa May to join the public and do another random act of kindness: let Jimmy stay.
Without the use of the internet and social media the New Era residents would have struggled to put pressure on a decision maker thousands of miles away. And without good old fashioned solidarity rallies, the campaign would have failed to capture the hearts of the public. That's how you win campaigns today.
This power is now in our hands, or more precisely, at our fingertips. In sharing and commenting on these articles and petitions, we have begun to do away with the idea that we are unable to help or to change things.
As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It's disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let's get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.
I've been supporting an amazing lady called Afusat since the New Year. With her solicitor's help, we have followed all procedures correctly. Fresh evidence and recent case law was submitted. Yet two weeks later, a short response came back, to say that her case had 'No merit', that she cannot appeal from within the UK and that she must return to Nigeria.
There can be no debate on the value of books in general and cutbacks in prisons across the UK have meant that library stock is much diminished and access time has significantly declined. Given that not all prisoners can earn money, and certainly not enough to buy books, the books and gifts sent from loved ones are a lifeline. To stop them is just cruel.
Last Thursday; we discovered that Yashika's work may never pay-off and that her dreams may never come to fruition. We were then informed that she would be removed from the life that she had built here and sent back to Mauritius, the very place that her mother had worked so hard to remove her from. Her life here would be ruined and the educational endeavours that she has made, nullified.
