Thousands Sign Petition To Stop Selling Indie Games On This Controversial Digital Store

Almost 4,000 people have signed a Change.org petition asking controversial video games key reseller to stop selling indie games through its marketplace. The petition comes off the heels of a holiday weekend where G2A published a blog post attempting to defend itself against critics, which in turn spurned indie devs to launch a new wave of criticism against the retailer, culminating in the online petition.

Indie games publisher No More Robots and its founder Mike Rose launched a petition on Change.org last week asking G2A to stop selling indie games. The petition was created as a response to G2A’s own blog post which claimed only 8% of sales on G2A are made from indie games.

Petition Calls For Jon Stewart To Moderate A Presidential Debate

Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” retirement is barely two weeks old, but there’s already a push to bring him back to the airwaves next year — this time as moderator of one of the upcoming presidential debates

“Over the last 16 years, Jon Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering U.S. politics and media,” the petition on Change.org reads. “We believe he should continue that tradition as a moderator at one of the 2016 Presidential Debates.”

The petition notes that Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the Cabinet, 32 U.S. Senators and seven members of the House of Representatives, as well as “scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news.”

In addition, the petition points out that with Stewart serving as host, “The Daily Show” won Peabody Awards for its coverage of the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. 

So far, more than 120,000 people have signed the petition addressed to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that sets the locations and chooses the moderators for each debate. 

Neither the CPD nor Stewart have commented on the petition. However, the organization spells out the qualifications on its website: 


“The moderators are selected by the CPD. The CPD uses three criteria to select its moderators: a) familiarity with the candidates and the major issues of the presidential campaign; b) extensive experience in live television broadcast news; and c) an understanding that the debate should focus maximum time and attention on the candidates and their views. The moderators alone select the questions to be asked, which are not known to the CPD or to the candidates. They do not meet with the campaigns, nor do the campaigns have a role in moderator selection.”

 

At least one presidential hopeful has signed the petition:

Stewart has said little about his post-“Daily Show” plans, but his next big public appearance will be as host of WWE’s SummerSlam on Sunday.

He also reportedly intends to be active in animal rescues. Earlier this year, Farm Sanctuary announced that Stewart and his wife, Tracey Stewart, “bought a farm in New Jersey with the intention of providing a home for farm animals rescued from cruelty.”

But the creators of the petition are hoping to bring him back to television at least one more time. 

“(S)orry for pestering you so early in your retirement, Mr. Stewart!” an update to the petition reads. “I hope you take all of this as a compliment and see how grateful these supporters are for your work.”

Petition Calls For Recast Of Scarlett Johansson’s Role In ‘Ghost In The Shell’

A recent petition is calling for Scarlett Johansson’s role in “Ghost in the Shell” to be recast on the grounds of whitewashing.

Earlier this month, Variety reported that Johansson had signed on to star in DreamWorks’ big-screen adaptation of the anime adventure, focusing on the story of a covert operations unit in the Japanese National Public Safety Commission and following the lead protagonist, Major Motoko Kusanagi.

While the 30-year-old certainly has had box office success starring in action films, like Marvel’s “Avengers” series and “Lucy,” after the announcement was made critics called the casting “whitewashing” due to the comic’s Japanese origins.

Now, there is a Care2 petition requesting DreamWorks consider recasting the role.

“What concerns me is the fact that minority actors are so rarely given opportunities in big-budget leading roles,” petition author Julie Rodriguez said in a press release sent to The Huffington Post. “It’s a self-defeating cycle: Hollywood insists viewers won’t be drawn unknown minority actors, but they’re never given the chance to break out of a narrow set of background roles to prove themselves. ‘Ghost in the Shell’ could have been a perfect opportunity to buck this trend, but instead promising actresses are being passed over.”

The petition has a goal of 14,000 signatures and has already collected more than 13,000.

Others have voiced issue with the fact that an Asian-American actress was not chosen. Marissa Lee, co-founder of the entertainment equality group Racebending, wrote a blog post in response to DreamWorks’ decision, explaining that it’s a missed opportunity for inclusive representation.

“Ultimately, ‘Ghost in the Shell’ is a story about what makes us human. Having access to powerful media representation is key for minorities to be seen as human. As a successful white actress, Scarlett Johansson has been privileged to play powerful women characters in action films. ‘Ghost in the Shell’ was a chance for an actress of Asian descent to have that same opportunity.”

A representative for DreamWorks was not immediately available for comment.

20K Sign A Petition To End ISU Course That University Says Doesn’t Exist

Nearly 20,000 people have signed an online petition in less than a month asking Iowa State University and a professor of veterinary medicine to end what it says is “an 11-part course that encourages the proliferation of commercial dog breeders” — or puppy mills.

“It is unconscionable that these institutions would facilitate the breeding of more dogs when so many dogs languish in shelters and with rescues, waiting for permanent homes, and when millions are euthanized ever year because of oversupply,” the petition says.

But Iowa State University has no such course or class.
