we receive tons of updates from every corner of the world: from a captivating Croatia on the Mediterranean coast to a continent-wide Canada to mega-state of Facebook. More reports from WVD here

MYSTERY EXPLAINED: From the very beginning of 25June.org campaign it's counter was set at a number of 1,177 so we could add signatures collected by Ogo Madueswesi through Petitions24.com in the year 2011. However, we never added those signatures. Recently, we updated the counter with the actual number of signatures collected through 25June.org. Well add those from the first petition (1,415 until today) and printed leaflets on the top in the next few days. Download stats from the earlier campaign (pdf) or check the current number of petitions collected.
