Marine Corporal Travis Bradach-Nall, was killed by the explosion of a U.S. cluster bomb, during unexploded munitions clearing operations in Karbala, Iraq, on July 2, 2003. Since then, his mother, family, friends and concerned activists have been working to end war, clear the refuse of munitions left from war and, most recently, for adoption of national legislation and the international Convention to limit and ultimately ban use of cluster munitions.
Lynn Bradach, was a speaker at the November 2008 Geneva meetings on the international Convention on Cluster Munitions and was in Oslo, Norway in December 2008 for the signing of the Convention.
Now, more than ever, she says she is pushing for U.S. adoption and ratification of the Convention.
The Convention comes into effect, for the 106 countries that have signed it and 37 countries that have ratified it, on Sunday, August 1, 2010.
On that day, there will be a drum demonstration to bring attention to the coming into effect of the Convention, around the World. In Portland it will be at the Peace Park
