Take Action To Control Arms Trade

Take Action To Control Arms Trade


Friends,

Every year, millions of people suffer as a result of the irresponsible arms trade.

Two years ago, 153 governments voted at the United  Nations to start work on developing an international Arms Trade Treaty. We want as many people as  possible to take action to control the arms trade.

Play our new game and spread the word. http://www.controlarms.org/en/games/catch-bombs

Throughout 2008, a group of experts from 28  countries has been meeting to discuss the content of  the treaty. Now is the time to turn words into action and deliver an Arms Trade Treaty strong  enough to save lives and stop irresponsible armssales.

A small minority of governments opposes international controls on the arms trade and is determined to block, derail and delay any further  progress on the treaty. They must not be allowed to succeed.

Tell your government that the world is watching,  It’s time for an Arms Trade Treaty
