Fake tombstones along the East River, NYC

Fake tombstones are placed along the East River by members of the Control Arms Coalition to coincide with a diplomatic conference on the future Arms Trade Treaty in New York.

 

They were demonstrating as the negotiations for an Arms Trade Treaty comes to a close on Friday, 27 July 2012.

 

Every minute, one person is killed by armed conflict .

 

Why do we need an Arms Trade Treaty?
