‘EQUATORIA - A WALK ACROSS AFRICA' is proud to support the efforts of MAG - Mines Advisory Group, a humanitarian organisation
clearing the remnants of conflict for the benefit of communities worldwide. MAG is co-laureate of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize.
 
‘EQUATORIA - A Walk Across Africa’ hopes to bring attention to the work of MAG International as well as attention to those countries that have agreed to 'The Ottawa Land Mine Treaty of 2009'. The Ottawa Treaty or the Mine Ban Treaty, formally the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction, bans completely all anti-personnel landmines (AP-mines). There were originally 855,000 signatories of the petition launched by the International Campaign to ban landmines in 1997; when the Convention was opened for signature, it was signed by 133 countries; as of 10 May 2009, there were 156 States Parties to the Treaty. Thirty-seven countries have not signed the treaty (click here for full list). The hope is to convince countries that have to date not signed the treaties, to finally, for all of humanity, ‘do the right thing’.
 

Additionally the expedition hopes to bring global awareness to the basic human rights of all Earth travellers. In a world increasingly concerned about environmental sustainability, where the actions of the economically developed nations have devastating effects upon those living in the developing areas of our planet, ‘EQUATORIA - A Walk Across Africa ’ will bring global awareness to the inherit rights of all humans. Regardless of whether you live in London or Lilongwe, New York or Lobito, your inherent human rights must include the right to:

Fresh Food - Clean water - Clean air - Shelter - Education - Healthcare - Safety - Freedom of speech, travel and assembly
