Pacific Islands Urge USA Not to Use Pacific Ocean as Missile Test Dumping Grounds

"If Pacific Island countries do not speak out or protest against this testing now, we will continue to be subjected to more dangerous tests such as those that irradiated Bikini Islanders in 1954. To the U.S., the Pacific Ocean is just a vast playground, not something to be treated sustainably or with respect." (Quote from Patrina Dumaru, a spokesperson for the Pacific Concerns Resource Centre in Fiji)
