London has been in terror since the latest acid attacks: two teenagers have been rushed to the hospital after a man threw at them a noxious substance. Their clothes and their skin were burning because of some acid that can easily be found in any off-license shop in London.
Before them, a female paramedic, a biker and a pregnant woman were all attacked by someone who threw acid at them.
The Police has arrested a 16 year old boy connected with 15 other cases of acid attacks and they found out that in many cases the attacks are gang related: buying acid or bleach is not a crime and does not require particular permits, unlike the purchase of guns or other weapons.
In order to stop these attacks we ask to the Mayor of London to prohibit the sale of bleach or acids in off-license, pound shops and supermarkets, where they can be easily bought by anyone!
