ICBUW already campaigns globally through traditional means for a ban on uranium weapons. This November we will be taking the fight to the arms manufacturers and the bodies that fund them.


In collaboration with Network Flanders and Banktrack, on November 6th 2007, the UN Day for the Prevention of the Exploitation of the Environment Through Armed Conflict, we launched 'Too Risky for Business'** - a dossier detailing how your high street banks are supporting companies that manufacture indiscriminate and illegal weapon systems.


We have created a full activist's tool kit to allow you to challenge your bank to disinvest and isolate these companies, be it through direct action, letter writing or media work.


To find out more about the Day of Action events in your country, please contact info@bandepleteduranium.org


So far we have activities in:

Austria
Belgium
Canada
Italy
Japan
Syria
UK
US
