With Professor Nick Grief (member of the Marshall Islands’ Legal Team)

On 24 April 2014, the Republic of the Marshall Islands took the nine nuclear-armed States to the International Court of Justice claiming they are in violation of their nuclear disarmament obligations.
This tiny Pacific nation’s firsthand experience with nuclear devastation compelled it to take a stand. The island group was used for 67 nuclear tests from 1946 to 1958, including the “Bravo shot”, a 15-megaton device equivalent to a thousand Hiroshima blasts, and has suffered the trans-generational effects of radiation exposure, including high cancer rates and environmental poisoning, as well as displacement from areas declared uninhabitable.
You are invited to this special briefing to learn more about the cases and ways to support the Marshall Islands’ unprecedented legal action. Also visit
