for those of you who would like to, the above links (if i've got the link to work, which i doubt) or urls lead you to a page on amnesty international's website where you can sign a petition asking for mirza tahir hussain's execution to be commuted, and to the control arms campaign, which aims to do pretty much what it says on the tin.

mirza tahir hussain's death warrant/execution was one of the stories we almost picked. he is still alive at time of writing, but, according to amnesty, can expect to receive a death warrant with his time of execution at any time.

There has been some progress on the Control Arms campaign.

Governments at the UN have voted in favour of a resolution to start work on an Arms Trade Treaty.
