Today, Oxfam released (with Amnesty International and International Action Network on Small Arms) the report “Arms Without Borders: Why a Globalized Trade Needs Global Controls.”

Among the findings of the report: “On average a thousand people die every day as a direct result of armed violence.”

Director of Oxfam International, Hobbs said today: “This report reveals a litany of loopholes and destroyed lives. Arms companies are global, yet arms regulations are not, and the result is the arming of abusive regimes. Europe and North America are fast becoming the IKEA of the arms industry, supplying parts for human rights abusers to assemble at home, with the morals not included. It is time for an Arms Trade Treaty.” King is humanitarian communications manager for Oxfam America.
