Arms control

I forgot to mention the other day in my post about City of God that Amnesty International in Australia is currently running campaign about the issue of small arms control. This press release from Amnesty outlines the issue in a little more detail.

The AIA action is part of a broader campaign calling for an arms trade treaty. It is no surprise to see Brazil’s president Lula on the home page. Brazil is one of seven countries to have already pledged support for the treaty.
