Welcome to CADU

The Campaign Against Depleted Uranium (CADU) was launched in 1999 to focus specifically on trying to achieve a global ban on the manufacture, testing, and use of depleted uranium weapons.

We also have a strong interest in identifying the extent of its civilian use and achieving as much limitation of this as possible.

Please take a moment to sign the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapon's online petition by clicking on the image below, we currently have well in excess of 200,000 signatures worldwide - make your's count too.
