SMALL ARMS ARE A BIG PROBLEM,SAYS THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA
Toronto: May 22-29, 2006, marks the Global Week of Action Against Small
Arms. It is time, says The United Church of Canada, to remember that
"God calls us to be peacemakers and reconcilers in a world of much
conflict and division."
Small arms are a big problem-not only for Canadian cities but also for
communities across the globe.
"With over 600 million small arms in circulation globally, we cannot close our eyes to the issue of small arms," says Choice Okoro, Program Coordinator for Human Rights and Reconciliation.
Earlier this month, Okoro wrote Prime Minister Stephen Harper, asking
him to stiffen the resolve of the Canadian delegation attending the June
26-July 7, 2006, United Nations Small Arms Review Conference.
She says the serious threat that small arms pose to human security can
no longer be ignored. She explains that the easy availability of small
arms prolongs conflict, and exacerbates poverty
"We must work harder to control the trade in small arms," comments
Okoro. "Small arms contribute to untold social, economic, and political
destruction, and act as a major hindrance to human development."
Arms: right size. Check.
