Help Ban Cluster Bombs

CWS is a member of the Aotearoa/New Zealand Cluster Munition Coalition, part of a global movement calling for a total ban of cluster munitions.

Cluster munitions, also called cluster bombs, are now the conventional weapons that pose the gravest danger to civilian populations. They can be fired from air or land-based artillery and then fragment into small bomblets – sometimes hundreds of submunitions. They spread indiscriminately over a large uncontrollable area and are unable to distinguish between military targets and civilians.

The Aotearoa New Zealand Cluster Munition Coalition - www.stopclusterbombs.org.nz - is part of the global Cluster Munition Coalition - www.stopclustermunitions.org - an international network of over 200 organisations in 50 countries working together to pressure governments to conclude an international treaty banning cluster munitions. Help ban cluster munitions. The Aotearoa New Zealand Cluster Munition Coalition provides regular actions that you can take to ban cluster munitions.
