Students and Community Hold a Day of Remembrance on the 59th Anniversary of the “Bravo” Nuclear Blast

OCEANIA RISING! is an event organized by University of Hawaiʻi students in partnership with community members in remembrance of the 59th Anniversary of the “Bravo” nuclear test in Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Marshallese nuclear survivors will share their stories about the effects of the 67 U.S. nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands.

 

Kānaka Maoli, Chamorro, Okinawan, Marshallese, Belauan, Tongan, and other students from the great Moananuiākea (the Pacific Ocean) will also share their own peoples’ histories of activism for social justice and peace and honor their shared history of solidarity through art, poetry, film, music, and testimonials. The event will bridge cultural and historical differences and strengthen solidarity between the peoples of Oceania.  It is also a launch event for the Oceania Rising student organization at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The event is free and open to the public.

 

WHEN: The event will be held on March 1, 2013, from 5:00 – 7:30 PM.

 

WHERE: Oceania Rising! will take place at the Hālau o Haumea, Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, 

 

WHY: March 1 was traditionally observed as Bikini Day or Nuclear Survivors Day, a day of remembrance and mourning for the many people who have suffered and died because of the effects of nuclear testing in the Pacific. It is a day to honor and learn from nuclear survivors who continue to struggle for adequate medical care, just compensation, and the recuperation of their lives and islands. March 1was also an international day of action and solidarity for the Nuclear Free and Independent Pacific movement.

 

The student organization Oceania Rising honors the survivors and the elders in the social movements for justice and peace in Oceania and works to rekindle this spirit of solidarity and resistance in order to confront the new wave of militarization underway in the Pacific under President Obama’s so-called “Pacific Pivotʻ.

 

WHO: Oceania Rising is the sponsor.  Co-sponsors include UHM Marianas Club, Micronesian Connection, HauMANA, Ethnic Studies Student Association, Ethnic Studies Department, Center for Pacific Island Studies, Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, Native Hawaiian Student Services, University of Hawaiʻi Indigenous Politics Program, US-Japan Committee for Racial Justice, 808 Urban, DMZ-Hawaiʻi /Aloha ʻĀina, and ʻOhana Koa / NFIP.
