Do petitions at PetitionOnline.
Short answer: When was the last time you heard of a sincere apology from Microsoft or CNN? Yes, online petitions can get results. Long answer: The potential results of an online petition vary according to the petition request, who sponsors it, how well it is written and promoted, and the petition recipient. No one can fully control all these factors, so obviously, results will vary.
Often it may be most productive for you to define success in terms of the factors you can control. A petition can be an organizing tool, a tool for collective expression, and/or a way to raise the visibility of a legitimate viewpoint — as well as a results-oriented tool for advocacy. Petitions here have gotten more than 100,000 signatures in a week. When people join together online to express their views, it can make a difference To read some specific user feedback on petition effectiveness, please see Comments
Official records are revealing that in a span of two years (2008 and 2009) Four dalit students have committed suicide in Andhra Pradesh. They have also recorded one attempt suicide. . But there could be several more such cases which were either not reported or the reasons were distracted. In the recent past number of Dalit student's suicides cases as a whole in the country in educational institutions is increasing alarmingly. The situation needs urgent attention from not only the administration of those institutions but also all government departments, educationists and intellectuals.
Please Sign petition to End Discrimination against dalit students in universities and educational institutions -http://www.petition
