Armed conflicts are increasingly taking place in urban areas, where explosive weapons are used on a large scale, causing extensive collateral damage.

 

According to the Explosive Weapons Monitor, when explosive weapons are used in populated areas, 90% of the victims are civilians.

This extremely high percentage of civilian victims is due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the growing use of explosive weapons in conflicts in Ethiopia, Myanmar and SomaliaSince October 7, 2023, the Gaza Strip has been the scene of violent clashes between Israel and Hamas, with over 30,000 people killed and more than 70,000 wounded on both side.

 

The intensive use of explosive weapons has become almost systematic in modern conflicts. They lead to the displacement, injury and death of civilians.

Many are left with lifelong disabilities. Their livelihoods have been destroyed. The destruction of essential services and housing is causing further long-term humanitarian damage. Humanity & Inclusion is committed to ensuring that the innocent victims of conflict are not forgotten, and to stopping the bombing of cities. Whether in Gaza, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Yemen or Afghanistan, the civilian victims of war are innocent people, including children who are particularly vulnerable in these contexts.

 

In November 2022, Canada adopted the "EWIPA" Political Declaration on Strengthening the Protection of Civilians from the Humanitarian Consequences arising from the use of Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas.

 

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, RESIDENTS OF CANADA CALL UPON THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA TO:

Draft and publish publicly Chief of Defence Staff Directive to implement the Political Declaration on Strengthening the Protection of Civilians from the Humanitarian Consequences arising from the use of Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas.

 

 

 

Encourage allies to endorse the Political Declaration.

Commit funding to clearance of landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war in addition to assistance for victims of these weapons

JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN AND SIGN THE PETITION! 

THE MORE WE ARE, THE LOUDER OUR VOICES WILL BE IN CANADA!
