Campaign Photo Postcards: BAN DU NEXT!
Postcard 1

Photo-postcards for the international campaign to ban uranium weapons are now available.

One set contains 8 postcards featuring the photos of our major engagements beginning with Hiroshima Citizens’ Survey Trip to the “graveyard of tanks” in southern Iraq (Dec. 2002) and the “NO WAR NO DU!” opinion ad in the New York Times (March 24, 2003), and leading up to the Candle Message: “BAN DU NEXT” (Nov. 2008). The captions on the reverse sides include essential information regarding uranium weapons and the international efforts to ban them.

Postcard montage

In March 2007 the first domestic law to ban DU weapons was passed in Belgium. In December 2008, the Cluster Munitions Ban Treaty was signed in Oslo and the UN General Assembly adopted, by a landslide, its second resolution regarding the military use of DU, requesting its agencies to update their positions on the health and environmental effects of DU weapons.

Let’s join our forces to seize the unique momentum created by these epoch-making developments. Please send these postcards to your representatives, diplomats, and NGOs around the world in order to alert them to the urgent nature of the DU problem and convey our concerted appeal: “BAN DU NEXT! Save Children! Save the Earth!”
