[16days_discussion] The Arms Trade Treaty - share your thoughts!

Greetings,

While the UN General Assembly is set to vote on the Arms Trade Treaty 
today, please, take a look at this article: 
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/mar/27/arms-trade-treaty-prevent-future-syrias

Let's consider the power the arms market has on escalating and nurturing 
violent conflict. And let us consider these questions: If weapons are 
kept from the hands of terrorist or despotic elements, are regular 
people kept safe? Who do you think the ATT benefits? Who else creates 
human rights violations through the use of armed force?

We would love it if you shared your thoughts!

Peace,
the 16 Days Team
