National campaigns have successfully influenced governments to maintain the UN moratorium on Terminator Technology. This campaigning needs to continue to ensure that a international ban is now established.
National bans on Terminator technology are needed now - India and Brazil have national bans on Terminator. Please join the campaigns in your country.
Australia: The Australian Government played an aggressive role in trying to undermine the moratorium on Terminator at the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. Australians sent letters to the government and, at the UN meeting in March 2006, the government backed away from publicly supporting Terminator. As a result, the UN moratorium has been maintained. A national ban is now needed to stop the Australian government from introducing Terminator to Australia and the world.
