Refugees and the Arms Trade: Running Away from the Problem (Amnesty International Refugee Week Panel Discussion - free event)
Glasgow West Amnesty and Amnesty Scotland invite you to a panel discussion around refugee and asylum issues, with a focus on the Control Arms campaign and how the currently under-regulated arms industry causes human rights abuses that in turn force people to flee their homelands.
This is a free event with some great speakers and should provide an excellent insight into some issues that Amnesty works hard on. You will also have a chance to put your questions to the panel. It would be great to see as many of you there as possible.
