~Reporting the conference in NY~

Look here for announcement in Japanese.

Depleted Uranium weapons were first used in the 1991 Gulf War, then in Kosovo, and in Iraq since 2003 and probably in Afghanistan. Since then,researchers have reported the drastic increase of cancers, leukemia and birth defects in the affected regions. Now there is a growing international movement for banning uranium weapons throughout the world,and we invite Canadians to join this movement. Yumiko Kikuno will report the conference by ICBUW, or International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons, held on October 2nd and 3rd in New York.
