AKRON, Pa. – Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S. is using a postcard campaign to support the Cluster Munitions Civilian Protection Act, legislation that would restrict the use of cluster bombs by the United States. According to Titus Peachey, director of peace education for MCC U.S., the U.S. has been the principal producer and user of cluster bombs for nearly five decades. Peachey began raising awareness about the use of these bombs in the early 1980s However, in March 2009, Congress passed a law that prohibits the export of cluster bombs from the U.S., except under very restricted circumstances.
