The use of depleted uranium in Iraq has not been properly investigated
or adequately addressed. When the world passes resolutions through the
United Nations, the United States opposes them almost alone.

With a new resolution about to be introduced, please click here to
sign a petition that RootsAction, the Center for Constitutional
Rights, and Iraq Veterans Against the War will deliver to Secretary of
State John Kerry and UN Ambassador Samantha Power

Since 2007, UN resolutions have included language affirming the need
for research on the potential harmful effects of depleted uranium as
well as the need for disclosure of where this weaponry has been used.
The resolutions have been passed by the vast majority of the world's
nations, indicating a growing global concern. Unfortunately, each year
the U.S. has isolated itself by opposing these resolutions, alongside
only a few other countries.

Click here to ask the United States to support clean-up of areas where
it has used depleted uranium
and further scientific study of the impact of these materials on
people, such as the relationship of these materials to increased
cancer rates and birth defects, so that proper treatment can be
pursued for those who have been exposed.

After signing the petition, please forward this message to your
friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the
action yourself.
