Australian Humanists, meeting in national convention in Sydney, at Humanist House, 10 Shepherd St, Chippendale, resolved on 3rd May, 2008 as follows:
‘That CAHS requests the Australian Government to do its utmost to secure a total global ban on all cluster munitions.’
On this issue Australian Humanists join with the International Physicians for Prevention of War, the Uniting Church and the Australian Red Cross.
These munitions have devastating effects on the civilian population and remain after the conflict. They are highly inaccurate but one bomb when exploded can cause hundreds of smaller explosions.
‘To applaud the Australian Government’s decision to end financial, legal and other discrimination which has been directed at same-sex couples.’
