Since its formation in 2003, the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons has made considerable progress towards a uranium weapons treaty. In five years, and thanks to the work of extremely dedicated campaigners, scientists and politicians in dozens of countries we have achieved:

• The world’s first domestic ban on uranium weapons in Belgium.
• Four increasingly powerful resolutions from the European Parliament.
• Two landslide resolutions at the United Nations.

During that time, the Coalition has grown to represent more than 100 members. We have held conferences and exhibitions in Brussels, Hiroshima and New York and are planning a Latin American Congress on uranium weapons in Costa Rica in 2009. We have held workshops and seminars for diplomats in the United Nations in both Geneva and New York and built partnerships with individual states. We have worked closely with military unions and veterans, with arms researchers and journalists and revealed the financial links between banks and weapon manufacturers. We have sought to publish detailed, reliable and up to date information and maintain our website as a valuable global resource. Our uranium weapons treaty petition has well in excess of 200,000 signatures.

All of this has been funded by small private donations and donations in kind from member organisations. It has been campaigning on a shoestring. ICBUW Steering Committee members are all volunteers and we have only been able to financially support our part-time Coordinator’s post since earlier June 2008.
