WVCBL and PSALM celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the MINE BAN TREATY in MARCH 2009
“Global Week of Action Against Cluster Bombs.”
MAY 29th-June 4th, 2009
During the week of action, campaigners in 50 countries, including WVCBL/PSALM, challenged decision-makers and fellow citizens with the question “What are you doing to ban cluster bombs?” Students hosted Awareness Days and continued with our postcard campaign to state and country leaders.
In countries still outside the treaty, actions were focused on convincing the authorities to ban cluster bombs once and for all. A targeted global web action allows individuals to send letters to five governments in five world regions asking them to join the treaty. With a single click, letters can be sent to representatives of non-signatories Brazil, Cambodia, Iraq, Nigeria and Serbia. http://www.stopclustermunitions.org/tellthemtosign/
Campaigners met with leaders, parliamentarians and diplomats to hammer home the ban message. People around the world were asked to make their voice count by signing a global petition and sending letters to leaders in their countries. http://www.stopclustermunitions.org/peoplestreaty/
