KPFA Special Broadcast - January 31, 2006

Poison Dust tells the story of three young men from New York who could not get answers for their mysterious ailments after their National Guard unit’s 2003 tour of duty in Iraq. A mother reveals her fears about the extent of her child’s birth defects and the growing disability of her young husband – a vet. Filmmaker Sue Harris skillfully weaves, through interviews, their journey from personal trauma, to ‘positive’ test results for uranium poisoning, to learning the truth about radioactive Depleted Uranium weapons. Their frustrations in dealing with the Veterans Administration’s silence becomes outrage as they realize that t housands of other GI's have the same symptoms. Veterans, anti-war organizers, environmentalists and health care providers will find this wake-up call to today’s GIs invaluable.
