First atom bombs, now climate change. Marshall Islands in peril

The US government exploded 67 atomic bombs on what is now the Republic of the Marshall Islands. These so-called "tests" -- which were also radiation experiments on human beings --have left a terrible legacy of health effects and contamination. They destroyed islands, displaced people, finished off traditional ways of life, and crowded refugees into one of the world's worst slums.

On Beyond Nuclear International this week, we offer two pieces about RMI. One, written by renowned Australian journalist, John Pilger, describes a horrifying visit there and the secrets and lies perpetrated by the US which has never paid meaningful compensation. The other is a beautiful poem on video, bringing alive the history, myths, nature and traditional teachings that have been permanently destroyed.
