Esperanto Petition

Recently Prime Minister Tony Blair has launched a website for the receipt of petitions to the British Government. This is meant to extend democracy by means of the Net.

David Hannah, the SEA Treasurer, has just had a petition concerning Esperanto placed on the site. It is possible to sign it electronically if you are a British citizen or live in the UK.

Please go to:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Esperantist/


It would help if you make this information available to Esperantists and supporters.

There's also a rejected petition here:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Esperanto-in-EU/

There doesn't seem to be an easy way of searching the rejected petitions. Does anyone know of any other rejected Esperanto petitions?

Interestingly, if you go to this URL the system tells you that there is no petition called "Esperanto":

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Esperanto/

However, if you try to create a petition called "Esperanto" it tells you the name has already been taken ...

Have you thought about doing a petition to the Scottish Parliament too? (It is the SP that legislates on education and lifelong learning in Scotland).

There is an e-petitions website at: http://epetitions.scottish.parliament.uk/

See also: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/committees/petitions/index.htm

The Scottish Parliament has a public petitions committee and a formal procedure for dealing with petitions unlike the UK parliament.
