Civil society organized in about 50 countries, its global campaign "Oarna Your Man" to remind the world of anti-personnel mines risks, and the Ottawa Convention prohibiting the production, use, transfer and Alatjarabha while working to help the victims.

The campaign kicks off throughout the month of March / March and continue until the fourth of April / April the International Day for Mine Awareness, this campaign include exhibitions and the call to help the victims and work on rehabilitation and reintegration, as well as highlighting the various media, especially social media, the importance of the mine which civil society participated effectively ban thus achieved global climate makes use of these weapons is walked requires conviction, because of the damaging effects on innocent civilians.

The anti-personnel mines weapon does not distinguish between combatants and civilians, it was characterized by inhumane reputation, particularly as it is grown death and terror among innocent civilians and impede the development for many years. 80% of the world's nations have ratified the Convention, noting that these anti-personnel mines scattered in about 60 countries in the world, including many Arab countries, also mentions that the number of survivors in the world is estimated at 300 thousand people living in 121 countries, and many have them It lost a leg or more, and the campaign slogan "Oarna Your Man" confirmation of the seriousness of anti-personnel mines.

This agreement has made a lot of achievements on the ground, Ktther contaminated land and assist victims, and a large decline in the use of these mines and trafficking, but a lot of people and communities still affected by land mines, and mine survivors live in difficult and harsh life.

Stay up to date in the world, about 70 million mines, more than a third of them still roosting in the Arab land in Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, Algeria, sending death and terror in the affected areas, and hinder development in all its aspects . Note that more than 5 million people living in Arab lands affected by mines, cluster bombs and other explosive remnants of war.

Our message here is clear: to condemn any use and urged all governments to join this Convention, which seeks to fold the pages of this weapon, which has long been marked by brutality, and the cause of many of the woes in the lives of innocent civilians.

We also stress the need to promote awareness of the dangers of explosive remnants of war in the Arab country, and strengthen support for victims through rehabilitation and integration and provide a decent life for their programming efforts programs.
