International Conference

The MARIAM APPEAL cordially invites you to attend a Roundtable
Conference on The Cancer Epidemic in Iraq and Its Possible Link to
the Allied Use of Depleted Uranium Weapons.

The Conference will be held on Friday 30th July 1999 in the
Whitehall Suite, 1Whitehall Place, London SW1 from 10am until 4pm.

There has been a ten fold increase in the number of cancer cases
in Iraq since 1991 as well as a huge increase in the number of
children born afflicted with congenital deformities.  For example
there has been a 300% increase in the number of children born with
the condition of hare-lip and cleft palate.

It is acknowledged that Allied Forces during Operation Desert
Storm fired almost 1 million rounds of uranium tipped bullets and
shells. It is a working hypothesis of the conference that there
may be a link between these weapons and these illnesses and
furthermore that the so-called Gulf War Syndrome may also be

International and national speakers of renown, including cancer
specialists from Iraq will present papers and make contributions
to the discussions at the conference. Documents will be circulated
to participants prior to the conference and an edited public
record of the discussion will be published.

If you wish to attend or be represented at this very important
event please contact the conference organiser Heather Cannon at
the address below. Interest is likely to be significant so the
earliest possible registration is advised.

Yours sincerely,

George Galloway MP
Chairman of the MARIAM APPEAL
