The 100 to 1000 Fundraiser
We need your help! Support the MBCBL’s “100 to 1000” fundraising campaign!
Donate $10 to the MBCBL and help us alert Manitobans to the Canadian government’s embarrassing draft legislation to ban cluster munitions. Be one of the 100 people to help us reach our goal of $1,000.
Canada’s draft legislation to implement the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) is just plain bad. It contains loopholes that will allow Canadian military personnel to be involved with the use of cluster munitions when involved in joint military operations with countries that have not joined the CCM.
This is a violation of both the intent and spirit of the CCM. Canada should and must do better. To continue to allow Canada’s military to be involved with the use of cluster munitions is shameful. Cluster munitions are indiscriminate weapons that have long-lasting and devastating effects on civilian populations and their communities. Children are frequently victims of this terrible weapon.
The MBCBL will be stepping up its advocacy work to engage Manitobans on the cluster munition issue. We are inviting you to do the following:
Support our “100 to 1000” fundraising campaign by donating $10 to the MBCBL to help us with our cluster munition advocacy campaign.
Spread the word about the “100 to 1000” fundraising campaign on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Call, write, or email your MP and all of Manitoba’s Senators to demand that Canada’s legislation to ban cluster munitions do just that. Ban them. No exceptions.
If you would like to support the “100 to 1000” campaign, send a cheque, made out to the “MBCBL”, to 343-8th Street, Morden, MB, R6M 1N1.
We commit to using your donation to support our advocacy work on cluster munitions. Any extra funds will be forwarded to the One Love Project’s orthopedic workshops in Rwanda and Burundi.
Donations may also be made using PayPal.
