Hello, my name is [first name], I am calling from [country you are in].
I'm calling today because a Korean company has asked permission to export millions of tear gas canisters to the country of Bahrain.
I would like to tell you about the situation in Bahrain, which is very serious. In the past two and a half years, police have killed thirty-nine peaceful men, women, and children using tear gas. Police fire tear gas into houses as people sleep, suffocating them. They also shoot canisters directly at protesters' heads and necks.
Korean companies, DaeKwang Chemical and CNO Tech exported more than 1 million tear gas canisters to Bahrain in 2011 and 2012. The population of Bahrain is only 1.3 million people.
Police fired one canister, made in Korea, at a young boy, 14 years old, named Ali. The police fired the canister at Ali's neck from a short distance, and killed him. Ali's life was cut short, because of a product made in Korea.
It is not only Bahraini citizens who are hurt. A foreigner in Bahrain died when police fired tear gas in her neighborhood. The Government's use of tear gas may also endanger Korean citizens in Bahrain.
Right now, Korea has a good reputation around the world. However, if you export any more tear gas to Bahrain, Korea will become known internationally as supporting dictatorships, and killing. You will have blood on your hands.
Already, the international media including the New York Times and Financial Times is reporting on Korean tear gas exports to Bahrain. Members of Parliament in Europe are questioning their relations with Korea. The world is watching you.
Please do not export any more Korean tear gas to Bahrain.
