i received these emails a couple of weeks ago and neglected to post them. ironic that as one team in lebanon is unable to continue clearing american-made/israeli terrorist forces dropped cluster munitions for financial reasons russia is dropping them on georgia:
Hi there, Marcy
If you haven’t heard, Russia has been dropping cluster bombs on innocent civilians in the Georgian republic which has killed and wounded many innocent people. Many countries have already banned the use of this wide area, non-surgical weapon. Survivor Corps is one of the lead organizations in the movement to ban cluster bombs and to assist survivors of this terrible weapon. I’ve put together this social media news release which explains everything.
I would be grateful if you could blog about this very important subject, it would help many people. Please let me know if you are able to help and send me the link to your post. Thanks so much.
Dani, Survivor Corps
Next week, half of the mine clearance work in south Lebanon may be discontinued due to lack of funds.
According to the UN Mine Action Co-ordination Center (UNMACC), $4.7 million is urgently needed in order for mine teams to continue their work. It’s not too late for you to help.
Please send a message to your elected officials asking them to:
1) make funding the UNMACC a priority, and
2) press Israel to provide cluster bomb strike data.
While the war ended two years ago, cluster bombs continue to kill and maim innocent civilians in south Lebanon. This can only be stopped if the UNMACC has the money and strike data necessary to clear these weapons.
Thank you for taking action,
American Task force for Lebanon
