I should probably say up-front that I don't know if I'll have the spoons to do these on a regular basis, but I have a few more spoons for organising shit than I did at the start of the year. Maybe organising post coming soon?

Anyway, as far as I can tell, here is the stuff that's active from the past few months of activity! I've included direct links where possible, plus a link to the spoonless activists post.

Petitions
Put the final Brexit deal to a referendum (UK) (post)
Introduce Universal Basic Income in the UK (UK) (post)
Tell the House GOP not to repeal the Endangered Species Act (US) (post)

Surveys
Donald Trump Media vs President Survey (post)

Call Your Reps!
Raise a Stink about HR 193 (US) (post) (NB: HR 193 is in committee according to the website; can someone who knows more about US politics weigh in on whether it's still worth calling about?)
Action for refugees (UK) (post)
Call Paul Ryan about the ACA (US) (post) NB: This is pretty old but I can't find accurate information online on whether the phone poll is still open and I don't know how relevant it is given the big anti-Obamacare defeat - can someone more knowledgeable on US politics weigh in?
Ask the House Oversight Committee to Audit Trump's Finances (US) (post) NB: Again I don't know if this is still relevant - comments appreciated!
