To many in the Marshall Islands, the U.S. nuclear legacy is still present.
Nowhere else has the U.S. saddled another country with so much of its nuclear waste, buried in a concrete dome that’s close to a leak.  https://www.latimes.com/projects/marshall-islands-nuclear-testing-sea-level-rise/ 

To many in the U.S, the Marshall Islands are best known for a movie monster: Godzilla, awakened and mutated by the atomic bombs in Bikini Atoll.

A Times investigation found that the U.S. government withheld key information about the dome’s contents & weapons testing program.
A recent study showed levels of radiation in some areas rivaled those found near Chernobyl and Fukushima.

Marshallese leaders say the U.S. has failed to take full responsibility. It’s yet another way powerful interests have devastated an indigenous community.
