This video charts the history and process of the Mine Ban Treaty and the movement, presenting key actors, the nature of the Ottawa process and the acheivements to date.
The film highlights how the treaty is the best framework to address the landmine problem. All countries must come on board the treaty and implement it - destroy all stockpiles, clear affected land and assist victims. Progress has been made, but there is still substantial work to be done.
The ICBL will not stop until we reach our goal and end the suffering caused by antipersonnel mines. On our 20th anniversary, and 15 years since the treaty's signing, we are challenging all of you to stay and help finish the job of ridding the world of landmines once and for all, in years not decades.
