Sign petition to ban depleted uranium
One of the greatest tragedies of our era is that solid uranium, sometimes called depleted uranium, is considered the most effective metal for making bombs, bullets, artillery rounds and rockets. Hundreds or thousands of tons of uranium munitions have been used in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas by the United States military.
It is well-known that uranium munitions burn when used, generating breathable uranium oxides. These tiny particles, if breathed, lodge in the body, emitting alpha radiation that destroys DNA in adjoining cells. Breathed uranium oxides cause cancer and many other diseases, killing and disabling the troops that use them, as well as opposing soldiers and innocent civilians wherever they drift.
Soon the United Nations will be voting on a resolution to ban uranium munitions. Presently, all nations in the world are ready to ban the scourge of uranium munitions except the United States, France, Israel, and the United Kingdom.
Mendocino Veterans for Peace, Chapter 116, is sending 3,000 signatures on petitions calling for banning uranium munitions to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For the sake of the present and future health and survival of the human race, please consider signing the petition supporting a United Nations resolution banning uranium munitions at the web address change.org/petitions/change-the-us-un-vote-on-depleted-uranium-weapons-this-fall.
