The Ottawa Treaty was passed in 1997 to prohibit the use, stockpiling, production, and transfer of all anti-personnel landmines. Since 1997, 153 countries have signed and ratified this treaty, yet the United States has not.

The United State continues to produce and plant landmines and currently stockpiles over 11 million of them. Every 20 minutes someone steps on a landmine, that is 72 people a day, 80% of which are civilians.


We, the undersigned, call on the United States to ratify the Ottawa Treaty and eliminate all use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of landmines.
