Demonstration over arms trade

Sheffield Oxfam campaigners are demanding the UK Government keep up the pressure for a strong international arms trade treaty.

Dozens of campaigners will be in Peace Gardens on Monday for a demonstration between 10.15am and 11.15am, with gravestones and banners to draw attention to the number of lives lost through the uncontrolled spread of weapons.

One of the organisers, Ellen Rignell, chairman of the Sheffield University Oxfam society, said: “There are a number of crucial loopholes that need to be closed.”
