The shoes were placed on tables with articles about the Mine Ban Treaty, the Convention on Cluster Munitions and materials collected from the CCM 1st MSP and past MBT MSP meetings.
Students arranged presentations and hosted a reception in connection with the exhibit. The response was amazing! Reponses such as “I had no idea the impact was that serious” to “what can I do” allowed the students to educate the visitors about our work and what we hope to accomplish. PSALM students work countless hours to educate others about the devastation caused by landmines and cluster bombs to children around the world. Attending the 1st MSP was a sobering experience that made me realize the importance of the work of PSALM students. We believe our mission is possible! Campaigners, including PSALM/WVCBL will continue to urge ALL countries to get on board the treaties to ban cluster bombs and landmines.
