Petitions and activism
AIBU to think some MNers are gits?

Ha! Got your attention. Pretty much the only way I could get people to find the way to this hidden topic of mystery, the petitions and online campaigns topic.
This year I spent 3 months in a psychiatric hospital. It was incredibly shit for a whole raft of reasons from being horrendously ill, right through to the utterly vile crap they served as food. The worst bit, though, was the impact it had on my children. They really, really suffered. The only thing that made it better for them was that I was close by.
They've now closed the hospital to women. Just women. Not men, they still get local care, but if I got ill now I'd be shipped off an hours drive away from where I live.
So a few of the women where I live have started a campaign. We've been doing pretty well, but we need more support.
If you can spare a moment of your time to sign our petition, we'd be grateful. It's here - www.change.org/p/lancashire-care-nhs-foundation-trust-return-local-inpatient-care-to-the-women-of-north-lancashire
I'm posting this in my usual posting name so I don't get accused of being a fricking spammer again.

Thanks, but I think that I've probably caught out everyone with the title now. Shame as we're 21 short of 300 signatures and I do like a round number.
I can post pics again now and I'm prepared to unleash a duckling kitten and puppy montage if it does the biz.

Thanks to Mumsnetters, we had 100 extra signatures on the petition over the weekend.
Thank you to everyone who signed it, or tried to sign it. Each signature genuinely helps our cause and we'd like to pass on our heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to help us out.
