Petition to End the Use of DU

International Petition to Ban Uranium Weapons
Campaign: International Petition to Ban Uranium Weapons

Many people - innocent civilians especially children, military veterans, industry workers - have illnesses and medical problems, which may be due to their exposure to 'depleted' uranium. In areas such as southern Iraq, where uranium munitions were used by the US and the UK, there have been reports of increases in cancers, leukemia and birth defects….

We, the people, need to let governments and the United Nations know that these weapons can have no part in a humane and caring world. Every signature counts!

Due to technical problems I am unable to post the link until later. Please return for more info. Also:
6/11 - Day of action
November 11th is the International Day of Action Against Depleted Uranium Weapons. It also happens to be the United Nations' Day for Prevention of the Exploitation of the Environment during Wars and Armed Conflicts. Events take place worldwide so check here for what's near you or submit your own plans to office@bandepleteduranium.org
