Campaign Against the Arms Trade

Weapons kill – no seriously – not just in a ‘BANG BANG you’re dead’ way – but in an economic and social way too.

Selling arms to other countries has made certain companies, and individuals in our governments and civil service very rich indeed.

The fact that these death bringers are putinto the hands of children in countries where people need food not guns, and that often they end up on our own streets killing our own young people seems to be beyond their limited comprehension. (or they just want the money and they really don’t care about anyone except themself).

For a person to say they are a spiritual person when they have sold weapons and armed someone when they do not know how, where or when that weapon will be used is to me the ultimate in hypocrisy, and I feel so very sad at their lack of humanity.

Selling guns to foreign regimes has caused so much death, and debt. Many of the poorest countries are in debt because of purchasing weapons they didn’t need and couldn’t afford because they were sold the lie that they would receive help if they bought the weapons. Some countries have got into massive debt due to paying ‘bribes’ to salesmen who promised them special treatment.
Now thousands of children die of hunger.

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

Peace Pledge Union The Peace Pledge Union is the oldest secular pacifist organisation in Britain. Since 1934 it has been campaigning for a warless world. Many of the original founders were widows and family members of those killed in World War 1. They hoped for such terrible loss of life never to be repeated.
When will mankind learn?
