  1. Save lives by urging media to provide coverage for earthquake in South Asia

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/448983019

    This petition is to urge the major media outlets around the world to provide coverage for the earthquake in South Asia. With 3 million homeless and more than 75,000 injured in hard-to-reach area, this is the biggest relief operation the modern world has ever seen but has been completely ignored in the media. With a harsh winter approaching, time is running out for the survivors. The media must play its role by providing extensive coverage of this tragedy.

    Thank you!
