WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION: Use of Depleted Uranium continues to contaminate

in

DU shells Kosovo

Depleted Uranium used to be called radioactive nuclear waste, and it used to be welded into barrels, sealed in concrete and dumped into the ocean. Now it is moulded into bullets and fired into 'enemy' countries.

Despite mounting evidence that DU causes respiratory problems, breathing problems, birth defects, and cancers, the US government denies any long-term harmful effects from Depleted Uranium weapons, and has refused to clean up DU from Iraq.

The US also used DU in Kosovo, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan. May 29th is the Second International Day of Action Against Depleted Uranium.
