New international campaign against depleted uranium weapons launched
At The Hague Appeal for Peace Conference a world-wide campaign against the radiological depleted uranium (DU) weapons was formed.
Now being used by NATO forces in the Balkans, first used in the Gulf War, DU munitions release deadly radioactive particles upon impact.
Depleted Uranium is radioactive and toxic and will remain in the environment for 4.5 billion years. These particles can be inhaled or ingested causing cancers, birth defects and other health problems to soldiers and civilians alike.
The international campaign to ban depleted uranium weapons will be working with international organisations, governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to implement and enforce international laws with regards to the use of radioactive weaponry. The UN Human Rights Sub commission on the Prevention and the Protection of Minorities passed a resolution listing depleted uranium weaponry as a "weapon of mass destruction and with indiscriminate effect."
