NATO bombarded Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1999 as part of the “Allied Forces” operation violating international law. The NATO forces used armor-piercing and bunker-breaking uranium ammunition. It consists of depleted uranium, which is chemically toxic and radioactive. Today, twenty years later, the terrible amount of damage done by uranium appears. An alarming number of people in the affected, toxically afflicted regions suffer and have died from cancer. The medical care situation is often inadequate, and it has proved to be too expensive or completely impossible to decontaminate affected areas.
Therefore, the International Collation To Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW), in cooperation with the International Uranium Film Festival (IUFF), the Lawyer’s Association Against Nuclear Weapons (IALANA), the International Peace Bureau (IPB) and the International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear Weapons (IPPNW), invites to films and discussions on June 24th at 7 pm in the Zeiss Grossplanetarium (Prenzlauer Berg). ADMISSION FREE.
