Coming Soon - The Third International Day of Action

November 6th will see the International Day of Action to Ban Uranium Weapons.
Long term CADU supporters will remember the success of the last two years' International Days of Action Against Depleted Uranium Weapons, in which actions took place all over the world. This year the day will have an even more international flavour as it is being supported through the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW), of which CADU is a founding member.

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
