Argentina: Youth Network launches petition

The Youth Network of Religions For Peace pledged at a seminar in Buenos Aires to collect 50 million signatures worldwide calling for governments to reduce military expenditure by 10% and stop firearms proliferation, in order to meet the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. IANSA member Maria Pia Devoto from APP (Association for Public Policy) coordinated the workshop on firearms proliferation. The petitions will be delivered to the UN Secretary General, the Security Council and parliaments.
