Circumstances Petition of the Marshall Islands

The women of ERUB (This is the organization of the survivors of the 67 atomic "tests" carried out by the US Government on the Marshall Islands) in Hawaii tell us that the Petition for Changed Circumstances of the Marshall Islands will be discussed in the US Senate.

Energy Committe and the Senate Foreign Affairs Pacific Committee on July 19, 2005 and that it will come up for a vote in September. I have included information on the senators belonging to both committees and a suggested letter the ERUB organization sent.

In case you think that this has little to do with boricuas, the same people from the Nuclear Center in Mayaguez that carried out experiments with our cancer patients by implanting radio active seeds under their skin participated in similar experiments on the Marshall Islands during the same time frame.

Sample letter


Changed Circumstances Petition of the Marshall Islands to be heard on July 19, 2005 by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Dear Honorable __________:

The survivors of the 67 nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands have suffered too long in silence. Survivors, through their organization ERUB (Enewetak, Rongelap, Utrik, Bikini), are asking to be heard directly by Congresspersons of the United States. The Changed Circumstances Petition of the Marshall Islands will be discussed at a hearing on July 19, 2005 before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Prior to the July 19th hearings or prior to the full vote on the floor of Congress, it is hoped that hearings can also be held in Majuro and Honolulu, where the majority of Survivors reside. The Survivors unknowingly sacrificed their lives for over 50 years for the security of American citizens. Survivors also feel most comfortable telling their stories about miscarriages, cancers, and deformed babies, often referred to as 'jellyfish babies', in their home environment of Majuro. People like government officials and lawyers often try to talk for them. However, Survivors want to talk for themselves because it is only when Survivors give details of their suffering will the truth come out in full force. Their stories of sacrifice need to be documented in the Congressional Record for future generations to read and understand. In addition, giving the opportunity to Survivors to tell their stories is a necessary part of the healing process.

As a voter who resides in your district, I urge you to call for hearings in Majuro and Honolulu in the very near future.

Thank you for your consideration of this request
