Political Declaration signed by 83 states in Dublin

In November, 83 states signed a Political Declaration limiting the use of explosive weapons in populated areas. More than 6500 supporters joined our call for action and added their names to our open letter to world leaders and sent their personal messages of hope. You can see our photobook from the event here.

The letter was presented by MAG to Irish Minister for Overseas Development Aid and Diaspora, Colm Brophy. 

When explosive weapons are used in populated areas, 9 out of 10 people who are killed or injured are civilians. The Declaration, if implemented effectively, has the potential to save thousands of lives.
