TheChairman Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 Hello everyone! Frequent visitor, a bit more infrequent poster here on the boards. Anyways, I work at a non-profit in the United States, and we are currently circulating a petition to push the United States to support a stricter version of the Arms Trade Treaty, so that the global weapons trade becomes more tightly regulated. For those who are unfamiliar with the Arms Trade Treaty, here's a brief blurb from our website: Every year, 12 billion bullets are produced worldwide, enough to kill nearly everyone on the planet twice. Yet, bananas have stricter international trade regulations than weapons and ammunition. That's bananas! But in July, world leaders are coming together to negotiate the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to halt the spread of unregulated weapons worldwide Obviously, I'm sure that there are quite a few people reading this who aren't from the United States, but regardless, US support for this treaty will be critical to getting something substantial passed, and we could really use support from people around the world. If you could take the time to sign this petition at the following link, I would really appreciate it. http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5550/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=11049&tag=attsam Thanks again!
