Rethink Rebuild Society participated in a roundtable discussion event on June 1st on Humanitarian Disarmament jointly organised by Mines Advisory Group and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute. The discussion was on implementing a vision of making humanitarian disarmament part of Manchester's identity.
Humanitarian disarmament is about always putting people above military considerations when it comes to conflict and weapons. Manchester has a strong and influential political voice and has spirit and passion for causes aligned with humanitarian disarmament. The city is anti-nuclear, welcoming of refugees and home to the #WeStandTogether campaign, all of which proves Manchester’s solidarity against human suffering.
