Peace Boat is deeply saddened by the passing of Roland Oldham, a fervent defender of the victims of nuclear testing in Polynesia and across the world. As president of the association of former workers from the Moruroa and Fangataufa nuclear test sites, Roland played a vital role in the campaign for recognition, compensation and reparations for the Maohi workers who suffered adverse health effects from their work at the nuclear test sites. He fought tirelessly to address the health and environment consequences of nuclear testing, and to abolish nuclear weapons.
