March 16th, 2022 marks the 34th anniversary of chemical attack on Halabjah. On this occasion, this event aims at commemorating all victims of chemical weapons (CW) and raising awareness about chemical weapons and chemical weapons disarmament.

In partnership with World Beyond War, join us to hear the history of the use of chemical weapons, human impacts and human costs of the use of CW, international regulations on prohibition of CW (mainly Chemical Weapons Convention) and implementing bodies as well as victims’ stories.
Speakers are prominent activists who have worked in CW-related fields for years. Their presentations will be followed by Q&A and one minute of silence.
