Teach Peace supports the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW) campaign by making available the www.bandepleteduranium.com address. This is an example of our best practice to collaborate and help other organizations to advance the attainment of an objective, in this case banning depleted uranium weapons. ICBUW is working to ban the use of uranium in all conventional weapons and weapon systems and for monitoring, health care, compensation and environmental remediation for communities affected by their use. ICBUW represents more than 120 NGOs worldwide and seeks to do for uranium weapons what the International Coalition to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munitions Coalition did for those types of weapons, in essence to develop a uranium weapons treaty that would prohibit the use of uranium in all conventional, i.e. non-nuclear, weapons.
