(Tipperary, Ireland, 1 May 2009) - The Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC) today accepted the 2008 Tipperary International Peace Award in recognition of its successful five-year campaign to outlaw cluster bombs.
“We are grateful to the Tipperary Peace Convention for recognizing the coalition with this award, but our success banning cluster bombs was the result of the strong partnership forged between likeminded governments and civil society and not the CMC’s work alone,” said CMC coordinator Mr. Thomas Nash.
