Statement on the Mine Ban Treaty Delivered by Megan Burke, Director of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines United Nations General Assembly  See more

THE STORY:

Since 1992, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) has been the voice of civil society calling on governments to stop the humanitarian suffering caused by antipersonnel landmines. In 1997, we were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of our efforts to bring about the Mine Ban Treaty. 

We are proud to say that the advocacy and action of ICBL national campaigns around the world has contributed to the dramatic reduction in the number of people killed or injured by landmines. 

Nonetheless, there is still a long way to go. Fanar Baker, age 9, (seen in the first photo to your left) lost his legs when he set off a landmine while cutting grass in Abril. Every day these internationally-banned weapons indiscriminately continue to kill or injure around 10 men, women and/or children like Fanar. 

In 2012 alone, approximately 4000 people were killed or injured by landmines. This is 4000 too many. The ICBL believes that through the universal adherence to and implementation of the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty we can end the devastation these weapons continue to wreak upon individuals and communities worldwide. 

Donate now and help us create a world free of landmines, where survivors can lead fulfilling lives.
