An AVAAZ petition launched on Thursday afternoon London time has been signed by tens of thousands of people around the world, calling on world leaders to ensure: “cluster munitions are comprehensively outlawed and innocent children protected.”

The text of the petition is as follows:

As concerned citizens we call on you to do all in your power to stop cluster bombs being used. Over 100 governments have agreed to ban these indiscriminate weapons. The Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons that will be negotiated in the coming days must align with this ban, ensuring cluster munitions are comprehensively outlawed and innocent children protected.

Article 36 urges everyone to sign this petition and to find out about your country’s position on the negotiations.
