About 15,000 Unites States citizens signed a bill calling on the congress to stop arms sales to the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency - About 15,000 United States citizens signed a bill calling on the congress to stop arms sales to the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The constituents who signed the bill entitled "No Weapons For Bahrain" that was raised for online voting urged blocking "certain weapons shipments to Bahrain until Bahrain institutes real reforms and respects human rights."

"The United States should not be arming a monarchy with weapons it uses to attack peaceful pro-democracy protesters year after year," stated the bill text.

The bill also calls for co-sponsoring Senators Ron Wyden and Marco Rubio's, and Representatives Jim McGovern, Joe Pitts, and Hank Johnson's legislation (S2009, HR3445) to block certain weapons shipments to Bahrain until Bahrain institutes real reforms and respects human rights.

This action is sponsored by Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain, RootsAction.org, Code Pink, World Beyond War, and
