Murder has been committed if thousands of workers have been deprived of the necessities of life or if they have been forced by the strong arm of the law to go on living under such conditions until death inevitably releases them.
Murder has been committed if society knows perfectly well that thousands of workers cannot avoid being sacrificed so long as these conditions are allowed to continue."
After garnering 30 signatories, the UN will ratify this legislation that will ban production and use of cluster bombs, as well as pressuring nations to compensate victims of bombings.
