The Arms Trade Treaty Final Negotiating Conference ended without consensus and adoption after it was blocked by Syria, Iran and the North Korea last week. However, we are still fighting to make history! The Arms Trade Treaty will now be put to a vote in the United Nations General Assembly TODAY! The session is expected to begin at 10am EST and the vote at 11am EST. 

You can follow it on the UN web cam here: http://webtv.un.org/
