Arms Trade Treaty and Climbing Goat Fell

March 12, 2013 in main by Martin Lennon

Today at 5pm in QMU Committee Room 1 we’re going to focus on the attempts to secure and international Arms Trade Treaty. The trade in arms and especially in small arms has a devastating effect on human rights around the worlds as weapons are use to suppress populations and to prop up brutal regimes. We are hoping that talks next month can finally bring into force a treaty that would mean this brutal trade is afforded the same level of seriousness as countless others (including bananas) already have.
