Brazil: Disarming the Mind

In Brazil, Instituto Sou da Paz is selecting two projects by young people to 'Disarm the Mind' with a focus on gun control and alternatives to armed violence. "Armed violence kills each year more than 34 000 people in Brazil. The spread of the culture of armed violence is still great. Homicides, suicides and accidents happen every day with guns", says Alice Andres Ribeiro, Project Coordinator. "So we are looking for ideas to help raise awareness of the importance of the topic in a lively, interesting and dynamic way", she added.
