The black banners says, “South Korean government that produces and exports the cluster munitions,
join the Convention on Cluster Munitions: Stop Rain of Death, Cluster Bombs”
Some young peace activists in South Korea did a peace action on Dec. 3, the first anniversary of the Convention on Cluster Munitions(CCM).
According to the Korean email on Dec. 10, sent by the organization, World Without War,
“ The cluster munitions have the high misfire rate and most of their victims are civilians thus the international society with 94 nations participating signed the agreement in Oslo on Dec. 8, 2008 to prevent the humanitarian damage by them. However, the South Korea that produces and exports the Cluster Munitions has not participated in the agreement. Therefore, we decided to do the campaign to inform those facts on the 1st anniversary of the CCM."
The representing corporations to produce and export the Cluster Munitions in South Korea are Hanwa and Poonsan, according to the activists.
