cluster bomb ban sign now

This is a two-part petition by Architects for Peace against cluster bombs.
Part One is specifically in response to the Medical Association for Prevention of War (MAPW) fact-finding tour of southern Lebanon into the cluster-bomb related loss of life, livelihood and maiming of Lebanese civilians since the 2006 cease-fire.
We the undersigned strongly urge the Australian Federal Government to:
1. provide all possible assistance to expedite the de-mining of Lebanon, and other affected countries;
2. provide funding for the lengthy and expensive rehabilitation required by cluster bomb victims;
3. formally request the Israeli Government to provide cluster bomb strike data for South Lebanon; and
4. support a global ban on the production and use of cluster bombs


Part Two is in response to the Australian Federal Governments decision to downgrade its support for treaties to ban cluster munitions.
We the undersigned deplore the recommendation of the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade not to support a ban on cluster munitions.
We strongly urge the Australian Federal Government to strengthen its support of a global ban on cluster bombs by:
1. not proceeding with the recommendation of the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade not to support a ban on cluster munitions
2. not proceeding with the purchase by the Australian Defence Forces of cluster munitions
3. revoke its submission to the Lima Conference on Cluster Munitions May 2007, to exclude from the treaty cluster munitions with a self-destruct mechanism.
