Beat the Drum to Ban Cluster Bombs

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Campaigners are mobilising around the world to mark the entry into force on 1 August 2010 of the Convention on Cluster Munitions – the most significant disarmament and humanitarian treaty in more than a decade.

On this date, the Convention's obligations will become legally binding for the countries that have joined. A total of 107 governments have signed the Convention, of which 37 have ratified. The Convention completely bans cluster munitions and requires destruction of stockpiles within eight years, clearance of cluster munition-contaminated areas within 10 years, and assistance to affected communities and cluster munition survivors.

There will be a public drumming event outside the Bargehouse at Oxo Tower Wharf as London's contribution to the worldwide events.
