During the current war against the Iraqi people, the U.S. government has used more than 2200 tons of depleted uranium weapons. Depleted Uranium is both chemically toxic and radioactive, and has been linked to Gulf War Syndrome.

On Tuesday, May 25, at 6:30 pm, the Depleted Uranium Education Project will hold a forum, “Poison Dust,” exposing the dangers of this weapon. Physicists, physicians, veterans, and others will present conclusive evidence of the horrific effects of depleted uranium. Government documents will be presented to prove that the government knew well before the war that the uranium was dangerous, both to civilians and to military personnel who came in contact with the material.
