In December 2011 EIYN finished realization of its 2 year Arms Down! campaign with its final project – “Poland Free from the Landmines!”, that took place in October-December 2011, Poland. Poland is the only European country that has not yet banned the anti-personnel landmines, after In January Finland formally became the 159th country in the world to ban this terrible weapon. Please see report, photos, videos from this project’s activities on the project’s website: http://bez-min.pl/campaign-in-english.
On the occasion of completing Arms Down! campaign in Europe, we would like to thank to all of you who supported our campaign, during last 2 years, especially those who contributed to it with concrete actions. We are completing the campaign, but that does not mean we are finishing with our work for disarmament. EIYN stays committed to working towards realizing 3 goals of the Arms Down campaign: nuclear free world, reducing arm-spending, fighting with landmines & cluster munitions!
