WEEK OF ACTION – BELGRADE - Campaign CONTROL ARMS
Balkan Youth Union (BYU) and EBCO Balkan – Belgrade office, as a
members of PEACE POLICY NETWORK in Serbia, organize a public stand on
BELGRADE SPORT FESTIVAL (11th and 12th of June) for the purpose
of collection of the faces (photographs) for MILLION FACES petition as
a part of the global CONTROL ARMS campaign.
Why should we join the ‘Million Faces’ petition?
The ‘Million Faces’ petition is a new way of campaigning. We are
collecting photos and self-portraits of people all around the world to
demonstrate to governments that we need effective and urgent action to
control the arms trade crisis. Our aim is to collect one million faces
by 2006 as a powerful visual message of support for the Control Arms
campaign. We will then use this mass movement of people to persuade the
world’s governments to sign up to a global Arms Trade Treaty. With your
help it will be the world’s biggest popular movement against the misuse
We would like to be an integral part of this global happening.
By this activity we would like to show to the whole World that one
small country, that passed through one of its worst period in the
history – that we all remember very well, wants to send a message of
peace, non-violence and human tolerance.
We would like to show to the whole World that Serbian people don’t want
wars, that it is against misuse of the weapons. On this way we would
like to improve a bad picture of our country, our people, which is,
unfortunately, in many countries around the World still the only
picture about us.
We would like to send a message of peace to the World, a message that
we are against all wars on the planet Earth hoping that we could help
stopping the violation of the most important human right, a right for
