INTERNATIONAL PETITION TO BAN URANIUM WEAPONS

Uranium weapons, often called "depleted" uranium (DU)
weapons, are manufactured from radioactive waste
materials produced during the nuclear fuel cycle 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.


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

At least 18 countries possess these weapons, the use
of which is contrary to existing humanitarian law.

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!


We call for your support to demand:

1. an immediate end to the use of uranium
weapons

2. disclosure of all locations where uranium
weapons have been used and immediate removal of the
remnants and contaminated materials from the sites
under strict control

3.  health surveys of the DU victims and
environmental investigations at the affected sites

4. medical treatment and compensation for the
DU victims

5.  an end to the development, production,
stockpiling, testing, trade of DU weapons

6. conclusion of a Convention for a Total Ban
on Uranium Weapons*

*A draft Convention (Treaty) can be found on the ICBUW
web site
