Facts on Depleted Uranium

The civic association, Res publica, association for information, is preparing for the date 24 and 25 November 2001 in Prague, the Czech Republic, a conference dedicated to the problems of depleted uranium "Facts on Depleted Uranium".

We consider it necessary to comment on the reason leading us to organize this conference. In reply to a letter pointing out the gravity of using Depleted Uranium in war operations in Persian Gulf and in Balkans, sent to the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel by the vice-chairman of our association Res publica Jiri Horak, it was stated that the problem of using arms with depleted uranium is becoming ever more relevant and that V. Havel has been perceiving susceptibly all perils made possible with the deployment of arms of this type to endanger the health of all peoples. In organizing this conference we wish to contribute to the realization of the idea, supported also according to the mentioned reply by Vaclav Havel, that the whole problem should be subjected to a proper expert opinion and on this basis relevant conclusions would be deduced as well as urgent steps resulting in the security of the protection of human lives.

It is just this reason that we are laying the central point of this conference on an expert level. We are interested in hearing at this conference technical, military, political, juristic, health, ecological and other expert's views on this problem. We have requested Prof. Jiri Matousek from the Institute of Environmental Chemistry and Technology Faculty of Chemistry, Brno University of Technology from Czech Republic, to be an expert moderator at this Conference "Facts on Depleted Uranium". For quite natural reasons we consider it correct to invite also members of various humanitarian, health, ecological and peace organizations. We mention that in view of the nature of the conference we calculate with the participation of the approximately fifty persons. Contributions from this conference will be published in a conference volume.

Results of the conference "Facts on depleted uranium", information and comments presented at the conference will be forwarded also to the president of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel.

On this occasion we wish to inform you that by this conference we take up from our preceding actions, which have included our international meeting dedicated to security problems of central Europe, the question of the nature of OSCE and the importantce of Charter on European Security and particularly the problems of Yugoslav crisis in 1999.

If you are interested in aspects related to depleted uranium, it would be a great pleasure to welcome you at the conference "Facts on Depleted Uranium" in Prague.

We would appreciate very much too, to recommend us for invitation those of your friends who could address the conference on aspects connected with depleted uranium!
