Activists are calling on Formula 1 team Sauber to carry a pro-democracy sticker saying "No Guns Against Voices" on its cars at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday.

The GSoA group, which campaigns for Switzerland to abolish its army, was presenting the Swiss team with the 5-foot decals bearing the slogan at the team's headquarters on Thursday.

Campaign spokesman Jonas Zuercher tells The Associated Press the message could be displayed on the rear wing of cars driven by Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi.

Zuercher claims Bahrain is playing "image politics" by staging the race while the Gulf kingdom is suppressing pro-democracy protests.

Zuercher says Sauber could "make a sign" to the people of Bahrain.
