Depleted Uranium Denounced
DU is leftover garbage from manufacture of fissionable uranium for bombs and nuclear power plants. The US has been using cheap and heavy DU for armor-penetrating missiles and bullets since its first war on Iraq. DU is effective, but radioactive and highly poisonous and is blamed for the alarming rise in cancer and birth defects among exposed Iraqi civilians in Metal of Dishonor, written by Clark and co-authors.
This health catastrophe in Iraq was portrayed in presentations by a photographer and by a cinematographer who spoke at the meeting. Ramsey Clark then elaborated eloquently on this problem and the mind-boggling proliferation and deployment of US nuclear weaponry.
