Coming Soon - The Third International Day of Action
November 6th will see the International Day of Action to Ban Uranium
November 6 has been set by UN as the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict. ICBUW is therefore asking all groups and individuals to organise actions to ban uranium weapons. Just having a small-scale study meeting or doing a one-person petition on the street will contribute a lot to gathering momentum for the international campaign. So please join us!
So far actions are being planned by groups in Belgium, Italy, Great Britain, Japan, The Netherlands and the United States. To give you some ideas here are a selection of what is being planned:
In Belgium the Belgian Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons will visit the Prime Minister, and the Ministries of Defence and Foreign Affairs, to hand over a copy of collected petition signatures.
In Italy PeaceLink are organising a march and event in Florence for soldiers and their families, scientists and people from Iraq and Bosnia to tell their stories.
In Japan the NO DU Hiroshima Project are organising a gathering at a park by the A-bomb Dome in Hiroshima, with music performance and speeches as well as a mini photo-exhibition on the Iraq war and the DU damage.
In Manchester we at CADU are organising a public meeting in Manchester
on November 3rd and on November 6th we will be having a stall and some
street theatre in Manchester City Centre. We would love people to come
and be involved with us or to organise their own actions. We can supply
leaflets and publicity materials for groups and individuals who are interested.
If you are interested please contact us at 0161 273 8292 or email us at
