Campaign Against Depleted Uranium

15 Signatures Goal: 100

Uranium weapons, often called \"depleted\" uranium (DU)weapons, are manufactured from radioactive waste materials produced during the nuclear fuel chain and the production of nuclear weapons. They cause widespread and long lasting radioactive contamination of the environment. These weapon systems are radiologically and chemically toxic. Innocent civilians including 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. At least 18 countries possess these weapons, the use of which is contrary to existing humanitarian law. We, the people, need to let governments of the world and the United Nations know that these weapons can have no part in human society. Please sign this petition. Nothing can change unless we take charge.
