How you can get involved
During the current Iraq War, the U.S. use of radioactive Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons increased from 375 tons used in 1991 to 2,200 tons. Geiger counter readings at sites in downtown Baghdad record radiation levels 1,000 to 2,000 times higher than background radiation. The Pentagon has bombed, occupied, tortured and contaminated Iraq. Millions of Iraqis are affected. Over 1 million U.S. soldiers — including many from communities all over Queens — have rotated into Iraq. We don’t know how many have been exposed to DU.
Half of the 697,000 U.S. Gulf War troops from the 1991 war have reported serious medical problems and a significant increase in birth defects among their newborn children. The effects on the Iraqi population are even greater. Many other countries and U.S. communities near DU weapons plants, testing facilities, bases and arsenals have also been exposed to this radioactive material with a half-life of 4.4 billion years.
Let’s work to educate ourselves and mobilize people to understand what the Pentagon has unleashed on the world. Get involved with Queens anti-war and community groups to demand full testing, full healthcare, decontamination, thorough cleanup and reparations. We need money for jobs, education, healthcare, housing and human needs right here in Queens — not for war.
