Global Day of Action 2016

On 16 June 2016, PAX launches the 2016 edition of the Worldwide Investments in Cluster Munitions: A Shared Responsibility report. To celebrate the launch of the report, campaigners around the world joined the Global Day of Action to Stop Explosive Investments.

The other menu items serve as inspiration for your own action, but you are of course also free to organise something different.
