Thursday 27 November 2014 is the global day of action to Stop Explosive Investments.
On this date, PAX will launch the 2014 update of 'Worldwide Investments in Cluster Munitions: A Shared Responsibility' report. We hope you will use the report's publication to help call on financial institutions worldwide to end all investments in cluster munition producers and encourage governments to put in place legislation to ban investments in companies that produce cluster munitions. We will provide more information nearer the day, including ideas and resources for getting involved.
