Argentina: IANSA members support national disarmament campaign

In Argentina, IANSA member Asociación para Políticas Públicas (APP) report that the second phase of a national campaign for the voluntary surrender of firearms is well underway. It is organised by national and local government and supported by the Argentinian Disarmament Network, of which APP is a member, and civil society and faith groups. Throughout the year, collection points will be open all over the country where people can surrender their firearms and ammunition anonymously. To help raise awareness about the campaign, APP has created the web platform www.desarmate.org with more information and forums for questions and input from the public. The first phase of the project (2007-2008), saw the collection and destruction of 107,761 firearms.
