Note:  In 1975 Glenn Alcalay was a first year Peace Corps volunteer on Utrok Atoll in the Marshall Islands.  Alcalay was seeking legal advice about a possible class action lawsuit against the U.S. government for damages stemming from the nuclear tests at Bikini and  Enewetak between 1946-58. Having written a letter seeking advice from world-renowned UC Berkeley anthropologist Laura Nader [older sister of Ralph Nader], Alcalay never       received a reply.  Until 45 years later when the 1975 letter was published in Laura           Nader's new book:  Click here for the PDF file

Dennis O' Rourke-NPR-Half LifeArtist Name
00:00 / 06:09

Listen to this POWERFUL 1986 NPR interview with Dennis O'Rourke re: "Half Life"

This website is designed to give voice to the people of the Republic of the Marshall Islands [RMI] who have firsthand knowledge - in their bodies and DNA, in their memories and permanently in their atolls - of thermonuclear weapons and their destruction, having been at the receiving end of the United States' "foreign policy."

AtomicAtolls.org's primary mission is to provide a repository of the unfiltered history of the relationship between the U.S. and RMI through an archive of audio interviews [in both Marshallese and English*] on SoundCloud (previously unavailable to the public) and photographs of downwind Marshall Islanders who were caught in the radioactive fallout from the 67 atomic & hydrogen thermonuclear bombs detonated at Bikini and Enewetak Atolls between 1946-58.


In addition to these rare and powerful interviews conducted between 1981 and 2002 [by Glenn Alcalay & Kai Erikson], numerous unclassified U.S. government documents, U.N. testimonies, NGO reports, and other educational materials regarding nuclear testing issues in the Marshall Islands will also be made available to the public.  Lastly, a large archive of videos and documentary films about the Nuclear Age, from the Manhattan Project to Weapons in Space will be made available.

Our website is dedicated to aolep dri-Majol, people of the Marshall Islands - especially the youth - and all of the glorious people who reside on our dear Mother Earth.  If there is a theme or a meme that truly captures the character and the spirit of this website, it is this:  America nuked the Gentle People.
