Fired up

Amnesty International and Oxfam criticised what they call the Government's "hypocritical" approach to arms export controls on 29 April, when they laser-beamed this poster of an African child holding a gun on the side of the Houses of Parliament. The image was projected the night before the UK's domestic gun amnesty ended last Wednesday.

The charities, along with Mick North, father of a five-year-old victim of the Dunblane shootings, submitted a report to the Government outlining their proposals for gun control. North said: "We are desperately trying to get guns off UK streets, but the hypocrisy of the Government, which refuses to stop British citizens proactively selling guns to conflict-ridden countries, is breathtaking."
