Réseau d'Action sur les Armes Légères en Afrique de l'Ouest (RASALAO) - Benin


RASALAO-Benin, IANSA member in Benin, organised a debate on the Abomey Calavi campus in Cotonou to talk with students about the ATT and the UN small arms process. IANSA and WAANSA (West African Action Network on Small Arms) materials were distributed in the campus and banners were put up to raise students’ awareness. 

RASALAO-Benin distributed IANSA leaflets in public places, shared a press release in French and other local languages and gave interviews to the national newspaper “Evènement” and journalists at the local radio station CERDEF. All activities reinforced the campaign against gun violence and the proliferation and misuse of small arms and light weapons in Benin.
