Pax Christi International is joining the global campaign with a new Package Paper on the Arms Trade Treaty. The main focus of the paper is a faith and ethics based analysis of arms trade. The paper gives an overview of civil society recommendations for a strong and robust Arms Trade Treaty. A letter concern, which is tailored to government representatives and decision-makers, is included in the paper. Lastly, inside you will find edited pastoral and liturgical suggestions for the religious services during the week-end of the 17th of June 2012.
