COST ACTION A-25 (2)
Brussels 22 October 2004
partner Clean Ostend were present at the second conference organised by
GRIP in the framework of the COST-A25
"European Small Arms and the Perputation of Violence"
congrats to GRIP , the organisers of the
event, who celebrated their 25th birthday in service of peace.
Frans and Mr I. Berkol (GRIP)
to Johan Peleman (1)
(IPIS), the guy is a walking database... and surprising us with new data
on Ostend Airport!
Remember: Wiloo and Clean Ostend were invited to join COST-Action A-25
by Transarms to take part in an initiative to gather data on arms
shipping, and as an example of how local arms traffic spotting by
civilians can help towards a saver world. Building a network of
arms-spotters and partly feeding the professionals is our dream! Sad to
see governments failing to do there job and tackle the illegal arms trade
What's result of the Brussels 2nd COST Action A-25 from
the WILOO/CO interests:
- The coming
database (brokers, traders, shippers, movements...)
will be based on the IPIS server,
- The database will not be public (to avoid claims),
- The database will also be a tool for ngo's to avoid the mixing of
humanitarian and arms-shipment!
-Wiloo/CO is welcome to get (expensive) transportcompany-assessments
and financial data through GRIP.
