Rongelap

Video: A Long Way Home

21 February, 2013

The Japan Council against A and H Bombs (Gensuikyo) sent a delegation to the Marshall Islands from Jan. 13-22, 2013 in order to support Rongelap Islanders who have been suffering from US H-bomb Bravo test in 1954.

Rongelap people are at the crossroads, being forced by the United States to go back to their home islands where radioactive contamination still remain. By doing so, the US government is trying to finish its responsibility for the damage of nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands.
