A homophobic petition that was floated on change.org, an online petition platform, has finally been taken down by the website after members of the LGBT community flagged the petition as inappropriate and called for Change.org to take it down. A petition titled “Stop the assault on Indian culture in the name of love. PROTECT the family system! Do not amend 377″ was started on the website two days back, and had garnered over 2500 signatures.
Something different is beginning to happen all over the Philippines. Every day people are taking a stand on local, state and national issues that matter to them, and they're winning.
Change.org launched in the Philippines in June 2012. There was a simple goal: empower people everywhere to create the change they want to see. In just a few short months, more than 350,000 Filipinos are using Change.org, and they're winning some incredible victories for people power. >>>
