Hiroshima Day Protest (Aug 6-9)
Let's join together to build a nuclear free future.
Each year on August 6th, the lessons of the horrendous atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are marked with activities of commemoration and protest.
 
Ban all DU weapons. 

A new generation of depleted uranium (DU)  "conventional" weapons used extensively for the first time during the Gulf War scattered more than 600,000 pounds of radioactive waste throughout the Gulf region.  Exposures to DU have been implicated in a  variety of serious health conditions including cancer, leukemia, diminished immune response, kidney and liver disease and problems in reproductive organs. Today over 100,000 Gulf war veterans and many thousands more in Iraq are chronically ill with Gulf War Syndrome. Their symptoms closely match those caused by uranium poisoning.
