Shipment: Halted! Congrats to Bahrain

Victory! After hundreds of calls and over 390,000 emails sent by people in Bahrain and around the world about the dangers of tear gas and the ongoing brutal policing of pro-democracy protesters, the government of South Korea has decided to deny export licenses for a shipment of 3 million tear gas canisters to Bahrain. This would have equated to 4 canisters for each Bahraini citizen. Congratulations to our friends at Bahrain Watch, the Stop the Shipment campaign and the movement in Bahrain!
