Yemen: Gun violence prevention campaign in schools

Children in 500 Yemeni schools have participated on peace and disarmament training courses held by IANSA member Dar Al Salaam (The House of Peace).Students are producing their own posters and magazines which cover the negative impacts of firearms proliferation. Dar Al Salaam has also put up billboards calling on people to stop carrying guns and using them for revenge attacks. Up to 959 signs were put into place in 2004, with another 450 expected to go up in the early months of this year. More information here.
