Bikini Islanders Demand Move to the U.S.


I remember much about these nuclear tests back in the 1950’s, I was only in my early teens. My impression was that all residents had been moved out of radiation harms way. This is the first I have heard of this since I can remember……The U.S. Government should be taking care of these people…..

“Constant nuclear testing by the United States in the 1950s has forced inhabitants of Bikini Atoll to demand rehabilitation and a permanent move to the U.S. mainland. A very small community living in the central Pacific region had been forced to move from their houses due to repetitive nuclear testing conducted by the U.S. The resulting change in climate and rising level of water over the years has now left them with no other option than to ask for shelter and protection from the U.S.”
