Brazil: 'Cyberaction' - "Show your face against armed violence"

In Brazil, Instituto Sou da Pas has launched a ‘cyberaction’ encouraging people to tweet or submit photos of themselves featuring the word ‘#desarme’ (disarmament). The aim of this campaign is to raise awareness about the risk of having a gun in the home, highlight the need for better gun controls, and show support for a strong Arms Trade Treaty. Nearly 200 people have already submitted their photos, which are posted on flickr here. To join the campaign, send your photo to, or tweet it using the tag #desarme. More information about the campaign and how you can support it is available here.
