Justice Mail Action 28th December 2014

Dear All Saints Justice Mail Friends,

The following is from Amnesty International.

The EU torture trade: Sale must end now

Struggling to keep a crowd in check with your ordinary truncheon? This spiked baton delivers maximum impact with virtually no effort! And thanks to loopholes in EU laws, you can trade in an array of gruesome torture equipment like this right here in Europe.

Call on the EU to fix the flaws that allow people to profit from torture.

Justice Mail Action 9th December 2014

Dear All Saints Justice Mail Friends,

Private military and security companies work for governments and corporations in war zones around the world, providing security, as well as taking part in reconstruction, direct combat surveillance and intelligence gathering. Such companies have a track record in profiting from war, and conflict. Yet, despite facing hundreds of accusations of human rights abuses in conflict situations around the world, they remain unaccountable and unregulated.

Use the War on Want link below to ask your MP to press the government to hold such companies to account.
