Please sign the following petition;

https://www.change.org/p/philip-hammond-mp-sign-the-united-nations-resolution-on-depleted-uranium-weapons

I would like to thank you all for signing this petition. Depleted uranium has contaminated Iraq since the first Gulf War, this contamination increased during the invasion of 2003 and subsequent occupation. Reports from doctors about significant rises in birth defects and cancers are being ignored. The US’s refusal to say where they fired the weapons is making clean-up and health assistance impossible. It is imperative that we stand up and hold our governments to account on this issue. They must stop blocking international action on the environmental contamination in Iraq.

I will be handing in the petition to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Friday 28 November. I will be joined by the Campaign Against Depleted Uranium and members of Veterans For Peace, it would be great if you could join us too.

Friday 28 November,
1400hrs ,
FCO Main Building, King Charles Street, London, SW1A 2AH.

We only have two days left to get as many signatures as possible on the petition to show the FCO just how strongly UK citizens feel about the damage in Iraq that has been done in our name. Please share it on your social media networks and email. If we all get two more people to sign we will have more than 10,000 signatures.

I hope you will be able to make it on Friday. If not, pictures will be posted on CADU’s social media.

Peace

Ben Griffin
Coordinator
Veterans For Peace UK

    Unthinkable amount of lives lost in Iraq.. Must be recognised and stopped. To all life is dear, not just Europeans
