I was commissioned by the Amnesty International London Volunteers Group to make a video of their efforts in raising awareness of the importance of the Control Arms campaign. Since 2003 the campaign has pushed towards a global arms trade treaty that would govern the sale of arms and weapons.
I found the volunteers to be a bunch of very hard working individuals, working towards a better world. I hope this video can match the amount of time and dedication that they put into this campaign.
