Ban Cluster Bombs
"Cluster bomblets, like anti-personnel mines, are unacceptable
when they kill and injure innocent civilians including children. I
call upon individuals, organisations and politicians to do all they
can to remove and reduce the impact of these weapons for future generations"
Please join me in signing the No More Landmines petition to
Ban Cluster Bombs. Cluster bombs are containers which release several
hundred smaller "bomblets" when fired. They pose
unacceptable harm both during and long after conflicts. They have
killed thousands of people and 98% of the victims are innocent
civilians, one third of these are children.
Numerous countries, including the United Kingdom, continue to
use or produce and export cluster bombs. Given the current and
potential scale of the damage, it is urgent that new international law
prohibits the further use, production, transfer and stockpiling of
Please support this campaign by signing the petition calling
- A ban on the production, use, transfer and stockpiling
of all cluster bombs
- A commitment from the UK government in
favour of an international agreement on this ban
- The rapid
destruction of any existing stocks
