I am confused. I read the info. you sent. Went to add my signature as I want to support and am asked to sign into my Facebook account rather than simply sign and support. I annoyed do it anyway. I then am asked to allow Causes to add my Birthday. I wanted to pass that step to SIGN YOUR PETITION to support as this was the point and am unable to do this unless I allow you to add my birthday?? I have now taken more of my time to deal with the Facebook thing and write this note rather than the whole original intention.
Yep same thing happened to me not a smart way to get people to support this cause you guys ned to reorganise yr site so the petition can be signed directly!
the same for me, I signed up for the cause but I do not want my birthday to be raised, I want you to take note.
I have been a supporter of causes for some while so I do not suffer similar problems. However, some of causes' petitions are a little tricky; for example the one on Ecocide. If you are still experiencing problems try emailing Anne Dias, [email protected]; I have found her helpful in the past.
it is exactty the same for me! I dont want anyone to know my birthday date! or anything personal! We just want to sign!
I tried to sign the second petition but kept being asked to 'submit a number' - What number? I didn't want to state my birthdate.
same here. I just wanted to sign and add my voice.
I signed with no problem . I really do not know what is happening
I had the same experience and ended up not signing as a result.
Elizabeth and Claire-Cecile, I'm sorry about the problem you've had signing in. I think Causes has made changes to their set up. But I will bring this to their notice. Could you please try to sign into your own facebook account and then click on sign? For those who are doing that it seems to be working.
yes that worked for me, but still I had to allow the site to use my birth-date info..
All I had to do was touch the "Sign the petition" bar in the email and that was it. Nothing about Facebook or my birthdate. Maybe try again with the email...?
Thank you for your kind reply and concern. I tried again 3x and same Facebook / causes requesting my b- day. Other things I have signed in the past I just click on sign the petition and that's it with a follow up thank you e - mail. Not sure why this is happening with this Cause.
To Nick Godwin - I was once asked to submit a number. I put in a random number and it worked! Don't ask!
hi Elizabeth, We've got many complaints like that. And so we've finally posted this petition on Changes.Org too. Here's the link. Please sign and circulate. And thank you much! http://www.change.org/en-IN/petitions/women-deliver-apologize-to-the-suryanelli-gang-rape-victim
I wasn't raped per say but I was sexually abused the fall out from this has made me a survivor and not a victim no more!!! I will not anyone to try to
I wasn't finished as I was saying I will not let anyone try to make me a victim again I am going to fight for women and I want to start an advocacy group specifically in the Fraser Valley because it sucks out here for that
No politicians be encouraged to commit such heinous and cruel act to a girl at the age of his daughter.
For the most part; the fight for Human Rights is a constant struggle for women's rights and equality. We can never achieve solutions to the immense problems humanity faces in the 21st Century unless women are truly equal & franchised. It's a matter of life and death. Every nation on the planet who allows or causes women to be abused and disenfranchised, also has a far greater number of economic shortcomings, disparity of income, education, healthcare, and lifespan.
Who are the organizers of this thing? If they are men, I understand. If they are women I wonder - if they are not capable to do their own thing, then let them be...
Me preocupa ver que la firma anterior a la mía es de hace 13 años!!?? Espero que se trate de un error o algo así, porque no puedo creer que en tantos años no se haya avanzado más para tratar de remediar semejante crimen, que, aparentemente, no es combatido. Firmé directo hay que ignorar el mensaje de FB, si no te interesa claro.
The organizers are women -- that's what is most upsetting.
I was gang raped too when i was 7 months pregnant, my childs father was the one who set up the attack & participated, my attackers were never brought to justice either, just like murder rape should not have a statute of limitations, my heart goes out to ALL abuse victims, stay strong xoxoxo
... I feel sorry for you ... the perpetrators be damned !!
It seems that an apology to the victim is of course necessary but asking India to change its laws and have specific punishment for the crime of rape is the true need here,based on the comment above by Sankhanath. I was a rape victim and although I know very little about this case, I would wager that the victim would rather have the person brought up on criminal charges and serving time in jail rather than receiving an apology from a group that didn't know he was a rapist when they hired him....

Yes this is insulting beyond description but making rape a frequently prosecuted crime and having the conscienciousness of the country raised to recognize women's rights is more important, in my opinion.
we have a popular saying in Ghana as '' if it sticks on your friend's flesh, then it sticks on wood or a tree. How I wish these rapes happen to some of the politicians daughters, then we would see how they would react.
The crimes against girls and womens are on ever high. We can't tolerate day-by-day more and more incidents. A clear message to the society would have to delivered. It's enough of enough against girls and womens! We demand strict action without any further delay! Let tjustice be fast and without any political/bureaucratic pressure.
