workshops and letters

In the framework of the campaign, several schools in Warsaw and Krakow, youth and student organizations, youth clubs, participated in workshops about anti-personnel landmines and about the huge humanitarian problem caused by the landmines to civilians around the world.  At the end of the workshop, students were encouraged to express their opinions about the fact that Poland has not yet ratified the Mine Ban Treaty by writing a short letter “from the heart” to the Polish parliament members. Each of the letters contained a personalized content, and even drawings and each of the students addressed the letter to a different parliamentary member. The content of the letters was very moving. Click here to see more photos from the workshops

The letters collected during the workshops in schools were delivered to the parliament building in Warsaw. We were assured, by the special department of Polish parliament, that the letters will be delivered to the post boxes of the parliament members in the parliament building. Please see the video documenting transmission of the letters to the parliament:
