From Radioactive Mines to Radioactive Weapons

This film chronicles how three large communities of people have been affected by uranium - the Navajo uranium miners, Gulf War veterans, and the Iraqi people. The film begins on the Navajo Reservation in the southwestern United States, where for years Navajo uranium miners and their families have been adversely affected by uranium mining and its continuing impact on the people and environment. The documentary then shifts to the 1991 Gulf War and the use of depleted uranium weapons. Gulf War veterans from the United States, Canada, and Great Britain along with Iraqi soldiers and civilians have been exposed to fallout from the use of depleted uranium weapons by U.S. and European forces during ground warfare. The film also interviews uranium activists and Navajo Nation attorneys, a human rights attorney raising the depleted uranium issues in the United Nations, and a university physicist with evidence of Gulf War soldier's exposure to depleted uranium and its results.
