STOP a ship full of arms destined for Zimbawe. http://www.iansa.org/index.htm. Be a world citizen – sign the petition!
“We the undersigned call on all members of the international community to prevent the shipment of weapons currently aboard the Chinese vessel An Yue Jiang from reaching Zimbabwe. We believe that at the current time, this weapons shipment risks facilitating grave, widespread and systematic violations of human rights through fuelling violence, killings and intimidation during Zimbabwe’s growing political crisis. We also call on all governments to urgently agree a tough international Arms Trade Treaty to prevent these types of arms deals from happening in the future.”
