International Day Against Nuclear Tests - A Poem - "Anointed"

Posted: 29th August 2018

You were a whole island, once [..]
Then you became testing ground.

Earlier this year, Kathy, a Marshallese poet and spoken word artist, took a traditional canoe back to the islands of her elders, which are now a massive crater left by the detonation of the Bravo bomb in the Bikini Atoll. Her haunting poem and documentary Anointed shows the terrible impact of nuclear tests on human lives. Today, on the International Day Against Nuclear Tests, we’re sharing her story and saying “never again”. Will you join us?
