The Defence Committee of the Council of States (Die Sicherheitskommission des Ständerats)
The Swiss Defence Committee of the Council of States has decided on 25 June 2013 to support the export of arms and munitions to countries with severe human rights violations. Today the law in Switzerland prohibits such exports. (The Council of States is the smaller chamber of the Federal Assembly of Switzerland, and is considered the Assembly's upper house.)
Am I a part of it?
With each weapon sold to countries with severe violation of human rights the arms business makes money on killing and mutilating fellow human beings.
Please join the people in Switzerland who do not want to be a part of it and sign the petition. You can also write an email to the following address (use the text of the petition if you wish): firstname.lastname@example.org
