„The bombing of former Yugoslavia with Uranium Ammunition 20 years later“ on June the 24th
NATO bombarded Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1999 as part of the “Allied Forces” operation violating international law. The NATO forces used armor-piercing and bunker-breaking uranium ammunition. It consists of depleted uranium, which is chemically toxic and radioactive. Today, twenty years later, the terrible amount of damage done by uranium appears. An alarming number of people in the affected, toxically afflicted regions suffer and have died from cancer. The medical care situation is often inadequate, and it has proved to be too expensive or completely impossible to decontaminate affected areas.
Therefore, the International Collation To Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW), in cooperation with the International Uranium Film Festival (IUFF), the Lawyer’s Association Against Nuclear Weapons (IALANA), the International Peace Bureau (IPB) and the International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear Weapons (IPPNW), invited to films and discussions on June 24th at 7 pm in the Zeiss Grossplanetarium (Prenzlauer Berg).
During the event the International Uranium Film Festival honored filmmaker Miodrag Miljkovic for his documentary "Uranium 238: My Story" with its "Special Recognition". Attorney Dr. Sdran Aleksic accepted the award on behalf of the filmmaker.

About the Uranium Film Festival
The International Uranium Film Festival is the only annual film festival that highlights all nuclear and radioactive issues: nuclear fuel chain, uranium mining, atomic bombs, nuclear power plants, nuclear waste deposits - from Hiroshima to Fukushima. The first Uranium Film Festival was held May 2011 in Rio de Janeiro. Since that it became a global event, with festival screenings around the globe.
However the Uranium Film Festival has no big sponsors from the industry. It depends mainly on donations by concerned people. For that we kindly aks for your support. The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Over 2000 atmospheric atomic bomb tests and their consequences, uranium mining and contamination, nuclear or radioactive accidents like Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Goiânia or Fukushima shall never be forgotten nor repeated. We welcome any donation!
