DU Weapons Project Testing Soil Near Arms Maker


Members of CPT Northern Indiana’s Depleted Uranium weapons project are taking soil samples from outside the Aerojet DU plant in Jonesborough, TN for testing. Activists’ efforts have prompted the closing of four U.S. DU plants in recent years. Aerojet is the Pentagon’s largest supplier of DU weapons, producing 60 percent of all DU Penetrator bullets. The project began in March 2006 as a CPT Northern Indiana Regional Group effort dedicated to stopping DU weapons production. www.stop-du.org.
