  • STRATEGIC TRUST; The Making of Nuclear Free Palau

    From 1982 to 1996 award-winning filmmakers Mary Beth Brangan & James Heddle documented on film and video unfolding events in the fledgling island nation of Palau. When Palau's voters made it the first nation in history to adopt a nuclear free, green constitution, Washington's war planners saw it as 'the threat of a good example.' Palau became the poster child for the growing Nuclear Free Pacific movement and a cause celebre for the global nuclear free zone movement. The 10-year-long manipulation of the electoral process the U.S. then unleashed to force the rollback of Palau's nuclear ban became a text book case for subversion of the democratic process in developing countries...and at home. Their experiences covering this story made the filmmakers life-long advocates of...

The forced re-location of the island inhabitants was just the beginning of an ordeal that continues into the present day, as life was never the same after the tests (which, incidentally, are not shown in this film but took place just after it was shot).

    About 1,000 Bikini islanders have applied to relocate to the United States as rising seas threaten their adopted home. The residents were moved from their Pacific atoll as result of atomic bomb tests in the 1940s. But their new home, on another of the Marshall Islands, is struggling against huge tides and increasing storms. The islanders have now asked Washington to change the terms of a trust fund to allow them settle in the US. In 1946 several hundred islanders were moved from Bikini Atoll by the US government, which wanted to test atomic weapons on the remote atoll. Some 23 nuclear tests were conducted including the huge Bravo hydrogen bomb, the largest weapon detonated at that time by the US.

This corporate law, known as the Republic of the Marshall Islands Business Corporations Act, is modeled on the corporate law of the U.S. state of Delaware, which is widely regarded as the most progressive and successful onshore corporate jurisdiction in the world. Lawyers in particular appreciate the flexibility and dependability of the Marshall Islands corporate program. According to Mr. Antonios Backos, who is a partner at the successful New York law firm of Healy & Baillie, LLP, the Marshall Islands has become the jurisdiction of choice for offshore public companies because "As corporate governance issues increase in importance for public and private companies alike, having a set of rules in an offshore jurisdiction that is more akin to current Delaware law facilitates boards and their advisors in developing best corporate practices." The Marshall Islands presents the best of all worlds for those interested in an offshore jurisdiction that can meet all of their needs. Since the Marshall Islands has a statutory provision in its law that exempts all offshore Marshall Islands companies from taxation in the Marshall Islands, Marshall Islands offshore companies enable investors and other professionals to save a tremendous amount of money while they can be assured that the legal system of the Marshall Islands will continue to be recognized and respected worldwide.

History The territory comprised the former South Pacific Mandate, a League of Nations Mandate administered by Japan and taken by the U.S. in 1944. The TTPI entered UN trusteeship on July 18, 1947 and was designated a "strategic area" in its 1947 trusteeship agreement. As such, its formal status as a UN trust territory could be terminated only by the Security Council, and not by the General Assembly as with other trust territories.[citation needed] The United States Navy controlled the TTPI from a headquarters in Guam until 1951, when the United States Department of the Interior took over control, administering the territory from a base in Saipan. A Congress of Micronesia first levied an income tax in 1971. It affected mainly foreigners working at military bases in the region. On October 21, 1986, the U.S. ended its administration of the Marshall Islands District. The termination of U.S. administration of the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and the Mariana Islands districts of the TTPI soon followed on November 3, 1986. The Security Council formally ended the trusteeship for the Chuuk, Yap, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Mariana Islands, and Marshall Islands districts on December 22, 1990. On May 25, 1994, the Council ended the trusteeship for the Palau District, after which the U.S. and Palau agreed to establish the latter's independence on October 1.

The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). Recognised as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to the German Empire in 1884, and became part of German New Guinea in 1885. In World War I the Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands, which the League of Nations joined with other former German territories in 1919, to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands governed by the US. Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and providing access to social services. With few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product represented by aid from the United States. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English. Almost the entire population of the islands practises some religion, with three-quarters of the country either following the United Church of Christ -- Congregational in the Marshall Islands (UCCCMI) or the Assemblies of God. Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, commanding the ship Santa Maria de la Victoria, the only surviving vessel of the Loaísa Expedition. On August 21, he sighted an island at 14°N that they named "San Bartolome" (probably Taongi).[4] On September 21, 1529, Álvaro de Saavedra Cerón commanded the Spanish ship Florida, on his second attempt to recross the Pacific from the Maluku Islands. He stood off a group of islands from which several natives came off and hurled stones at his ship. These islands, named by him "Los Pintados," may have been Ujelang. On October 1, he found another group of islands where he went ashore for eight days, exchanged gifts with natives and took on water. These islands, "Los Jardines," could be Eniwetok or Bikini Atoll. The Spanish ship San Pedro and two other vessels in an expedition commanded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi on January 9, 1530, discovered an island at 10°N where they went ashore and traded with natives and named it "Los Barbudos" (possibly Mejit). On January 10, they sighted another island that they named "Placeres" (perhaps Ailuk), ten leagues away, they sighted another island that they called "Pajares" (perhaps Jemo). On January 12, they sighted another island at 10°N which they called "Corrales" (possibly Wotho). On January 15, another low island was sighted at 10°N (perhaps Ujelang) where they made a good description of the people on "Barbudos."[7][8] After that, ships like San Jeronimo, Los Reyes, Todos los Santos also visited the islands in different years.

Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and access to social services. Having few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product coming from United States aid. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English... In the months before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Kwajalein Atoll was the administrative center of the Japanese 6th Fleet Forces Service, whose task was the defense of the Marshall Islands. In World War II, the United States, during the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign, invaded and occupied the islands in 1944, destroying or isolating the Japanese garrisons. The US government added the archipelago to the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, along with several other island groups in the South Sea. The battle in the Marshall Islands caused irreparable damage, especially on Japanese bases. During the American bombing, the islands' population suffered from lack of food and various injuries. U.S. attacks started in mid-1943, and caused half the Japanese garrison of 5,100 people in the atoll Mili to die from hunger by August 1945. In just one month in 1944, Americans captured Kwajalein Atoll, Majuro and Enewetak, and in the next two months the rest of the Marshall Islands except Wotje, Mili, Maloelap and Jaluit... From 1946 to 1958, as the site of the Pacific Proving Grounds, the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands, including the largest nuclear test the U.S. ever conducted, Castle Bravo. In 1956, the Atomic Energy Commission regarded the Marshall Islands as "by far the most contaminated place in the world".

Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of around 68,000 people spread out over 34 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall. Recognized as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to Germany in 1884, and became of German New Guinea in 1885. The Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands in World War I, which were later joined with other former German territories in 1919 by the League of Nations to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign.

Words and music by Brett Taylor (with help from Dymitri Solomon Jibas on the chorus ending) Special thanks to Branson Enos and Jonathan Lang for playing the guitar. Once again, the amazingly talented Majuro Baptist Christian Academy brings you "Take My hand" written by yours truly. Tell me what you think! I'm always appreciated of positive feedback. This song is about baby Moses when his mother sent him down the river to be away from the wrath of Pharaoh. It's from the perspective of one observing her final moments with her son. In the second verse, we hear of God's words of love towards us. Just as Moses' mother gave her son words of love, so God gives us words of love as we ourselves live in a foreign land. Verse One: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Her voice so tender like an angel from above How her tears reveal such love a mother shows If only he could see how much she loves him so Listen to these words of love A mother speaking to her son A foreign land he will belong But through these words he will be strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, God is near, He’ll guide you through Trust in Him and these words abide.” Verse Two: All my life I’ve never heard such words of love Your words so tender like an angel from above How Your words reveal such love a Father shows Now I can clearly see how much you love me so Listen to these words of love A Father speaking to His own A foreign land I do belong But through these words I am made strong Chorus: “Take my hand, don’t you cry, I’ll see you through There is light on the other side Do not fear, I am near, I’ll guide you through Trust in Me, and My words abide

Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ “A newly discovered photograph suggests legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, who vanished 80 years ago on a round-the-world flight, survived a crash-landing in the Marshall Islands. The photo, found in a long-forgotten file in the National Archives, shows a woman who resembles Earhart and a man who appears to be her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock. The discovery is featured in a new History channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence," that airs Sunday. Independent analysts told History the photo appears legitimate and undoctored.

From 1982 to 1996 award-winning filmmakers Mary Beth Brangan & James Heddle documented on film and video unfolding events in the fledgling island nation of Palau. When Palau's voters made it the first nation in history to adopt a nuclear free, green constitution, Washington's war planners saw it as 'the threat of a good example.' Palau became the poster child for the growing Nuclear Free Pacific movement and a cause celebre for the global nuclear free zone movement. The 10-year-long manipulation of the electoral process the U.S. then unleashed to force the rollback of Palau's nuclear ban became a text book case for subversion of the democratic process in developing countries...and at home. Their experiences covering this story made the filmmakers life-long advocates of election integrity. This film was produced on a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in 1986.

Offshore Trusts. Visit http://www.AssetProtectionOffer.com and you can subscribe to my Offshore Asset Protection and Investing Secrets Video Series of videos and emails. You'll also get a copy of my book, Asset Protection in Financially Unsafe Times in pdf format and a 20-minute consultation with me to discuss YOUR SITUATION. All at no cost or obligation. So what are the best offshore jurisdictions for the formation of offshore trusts? The jurisdiction with the best track record is the Cook Islands. It has a record of twice flaunting a U.S. federal judge's attempts to seize trust assets. No other jurisdiction has that track record. There are a couple of jurisdictions that have bowed to U.S. courts demand, one being the Isle of Man. Some other good jurisdictions are Nevis, Belize, and the Cayman Islands. Western Samoa isn't bad but their Trust Statues are not nearly as well developed as the Cook Islands. It is not a bad idea to use a lower profile offshore jurisdiction initially, however, while the creditor seas are calm. In the event of a creditor attack, the trustee can move the trust to a strong jurisdiction such as the Cook Islands. Since this is the trustee's decision and not the grantor's, it makes the trust look less suspicious or anti-creditor to a judge, and it makes the grantor seem less likely to have set up the trust only for asset protection. Hope you find this video helpful. Thanks! Ryan Fowler

"Bikini -- The Atom Island" is a 1946 short that chronicles the evacuation of Bikini Atoll prior to the Operation Crossroads atomic bomb tests. The forced re-location of the island inhabitants was just the beginning of an ordeal that continues into the present day, as life was never the same after the tests (which, incidentally, are not shown in this film but took place just after it was shot). Bikini Atoll is an atoll in the Marshall Islands. The atoll consists of 23 islands totaling 3.4 square miles surrounding a deep 229.4-square-mile central lagoon at the northern end of the Ralik Chain Within Bikini Atoll, Bikini, Eneu, Nam and Enidrik islands comprise just over 70% of the land area. Bikini and Eneu are the only islands of the atoll that hosted a permanent population. Bikini Island is the northeastern most and largest islet. Before World War II, the atoll was known by its Baltic German name as Eschscholtz Atoll. Between 1946 and 1958, 23 nuclear devices were detonated by the United States at seven test sites located on the reef, inside the atoll, in the air, or underwater. They had a combined fission yield of 42.2 Mt. The testing began with the Operation Crossroads series in July 1946. Prior to nuclear testing, the residents initially accepted resettlement voluntarily to Rongerik Atoll, believing they would be able to return home within a short time. Rongerik Atoll could not produce enough food and the islanders starved. When they could not return home, they were relocated to Kwajalein Atoll for six months before choosing to live on Kili Island, a small island one-sixth the size of their home island. Some were able to return to the Bikini Island in 1970 until further testing revealed dangerous levels of strontium-90. The islanders have been the beneficiary of several trust funds created by the United States government which as of 2013 covered medical treatment and other costs and paid about $550 annually to each individual. As of 2013, about 4880 Bikini people live on Kili and other Marshall Islands, and some have emigrated to the United States. Bikini Island is currently visited by a few scientists and inhabited by 4–6 caretakers.

October 2009 An American test warhead arcs gracefully through the sky towards Kwajalein Island, a strange but familiar sight here. But now a rift between America and the Marshallese is making the islands future unclear. A Minuteman III intercontinental missile was fired 28 minutes earlier from a Californian airbase. Fortunately the re-entry vehicles splash down harmlessly in deep water in the Kwajalein Atoll. US Army Lt-Colonel Harold Buhl is pleased. In order for a weapon to be a weapon of deterrence it needs to be proven that in fact it will work. For 63 years the Marshall Islands has played host to American war games but in 2016 Americas lease for 11 of the islands is up. The Marshallese say the US compensation is inadequate and their people are struggling. Dubbed The Slum of the Pacific, 15,000 people are crammed into a narrow strip of coral and sand.

President Tsai Ing-wen announced today that visa-free status will be extended to Taiwan’s six Pacific allies, to the delight of her hosts in the Marshall Islands. However, the news was overshadowed by political upheavals in the Solomon Islands, the third stop on her trip, where the Prime Minister is facing a vote of no confidence. However, the Solomon Islands maintain that Tsai’s visit will be unaffected by their domestic political turbulence. A choir welcomed President Tsai into the Marshall Islands’ parliament, where she gave an address.Tsai Ing-wenPresidentI also want to announce that in the near future, Taiwan will extend visa-free status to all the citizens of its six Pacific allies, including the Republic of the Marshall Islands. I trust that our mutual relationship will improve even further. The representatives in attendance applauded the announcement. But in contrast to the peaceful and pleasant atmosphere in the Marshall Islands’ parliament, the government of the Solomon Islands, which is Tsai’s third stop on her tour, has fallen into crisis.David LeeForeign MinisterPresently the Solomon Islands’ cabinet is going through some political changes. But our understanding in every sense is that President Tsai’s itinerary in the Solomon Islands is unchanged. The government and opposition there are in agreement that her visit is extremely important, and they’re determined that only after her visit has successfully ended will they address their domestic political issues. Both government and opposition are agreed that they wish to continue their alliance with our country.In recent days, Foreign Minister David Lee has been continuously briefing the president on the political upheavals in the Solomon Islands. Seven of the nations’ ministers, including Deputy Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga, have resigned, and the parliament is tabling a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, meaning the government is about to be completely shaken up.

The Marshall Islands are a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines. In the northwest, Bikini Atoll’s largely undisturbed waters, used as a ship graveyard after World War II, are now a popular wreck dive site. Near Majuro Atoll, which holds the islands' capital and largest settlement, the coral reef at Kalalin Pass teems with marine life. After almost four decades under US administration as the easternmost part of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands attained independence in 1986 under a Compact of Free Association. Compensation claims continue as a result of US nuclear testing on some of the atolls between 1947 and 1962. The Marshall Islands have been home to the US Army Post Kwajalein (USAKA) since 1964. A number of islands are off-limits to tourism (and even to locals) due to US military presence or the residue of nuclear testing. The Marshall Islands consist of two island chains of 30 atolls and 1,152 islands, of low coral limestone and sand. Bikini and Enewetak are former US nuclear test sites; Kwajalein, the famous World War II battleground, is now used as a US missile test range.

Its land area totals less than 5.85 square kilometres (2.26 sq mi), not higher than 5 metres and surrounding a deep central lagoon, 80 kilometres (50 mi) in circumference. It is the second-westernmost atoll of the Ralik Chain and is 305 kilometres (190 mi) west from Bikini Atoll. The U.S. government referred to the atoll as "Eniwetok" until 1974, when it changed its official spelling to "Enewetak"... In 19771980, a concrete dome was built on Runit Island to deposit radioactive soil and debris... History Humans have inhabited the atoll since about 1,000 BCE.

It was visited by about a dozen ships before the establishment of the German colony of the Marshall Islands in 1885. With the rest of the Marshalls, Enewetak was captured by the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1914 during World War I and mandated to the Empire of Japan by the League of Nations in 1920... During the Battle of Eniwetok in February 1944, the United States captured Enewetak in a five-day amphibious operation... Following the end of World War II, Enewetak came under the control of the United States as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands until the independence of the Marshall Islands in 1986. During its tenure, the United States evacuated the local residents many times, often involuntarily. The atoll was used for nuclear testing as part of the Pacific Proving Grounds... Forty-three nuclear tests were fired at Enewetak from 1948 to 1958. The first hydrogen bomb test, code-named Ivy Mike, occurred in late 1952 as part of Operation Ivy; it vaporized the islet of Elugelab... A radiological survey of Enewetak was conducted in from 1972 to 1973. In 1977, the United States military began decontamination of Enewetak and other islands. During the three-year, $100 million cleanup process, the military mixed more than 111,000 cubic yards (85,000 m3) of contaminated soil and debris from the islands with Portland cement and buried it in an atomic blast crater on the northern end of the atoll's Runit Island... The final cost of the cleanup project was $239 million. The United States government declared the southern and western islands in the atoll safe for habitation in 1980, and residents of Enewetak returned that same year. Section 177 of the 1983 Compact of Free Association between the governments of the United States and the Marshall Islands establishes a process for Marshallese to make a claim against the United States government... That same year, an agreement was signed to implement Section 177 which established a $150 million trust fund. The fund was intended to generate $18 million a year, which would be payable to claimants... In 2000, the tribunal made a compensation award to the people of Enewetak consisting of $107.8 million for environmental restoration; $244 million in damages to cover economic losses caused by loss of access and use of the atoll; and $34 million for hardship and suffering. In addition, as of the end of 2008, another $96.658 million in individual damage awards were made. Only $73.526 million of the individual claims award has been paid... the fund was nearly exhausted as of May 2010 and unable to make any additional awards or payments. A lawsuit by Marshallese arguing that "changed circumstances" made Nuclear Claims Tribunal unable to make just compensation was dismissed by the Supreme Court of the United States in April 2010. The 2000 environmental restoration award included funds for additional cleanup of radioactivity on Enewetak... most areas still contaminated on Enewetak were treated with potassium... The cost of the potassium decontamination project was $103.3 million. It is projected that the majority of the atoll will be fit for human habitation by the year 2026-2027 after nuclear decay, de-contamination and environmental remediation efforts create sufficient dose reductions...

Trusts established for a specific purpose. A lot of people from United States, Canada and Europe establish them in particular in the Caribbean area and in Liechtenstein and Gibraltar, but in recent years it has become quite popular to establish trusts also in the Pacific-Asian regions (Cook Islands, Nauru, Marshall Islands) or in other jurisdictions.

Bikini islanders seek US refuge as sea levels threaten homes

About 1,000 Bikini islanders have applied to relocate to the United States as rising seas threaten their adopted home. The residents were moved from their Pacific atoll as result of atomic bomb tests in the 1940s. But their new home, on another of the Marshall Islands, is struggling against huge tides and increasing storms. The islanders have now asked Washington to change the terms of a trust fund to allow them settle in the US. In 1946 several hundred islanders were moved from Bikini Atoll by the US government, which wanted to test atomic weapons on the remote atoll. Some 23 nuclear tests were conducted including the huge Bravo hydrogen bomb, the largest weapon detonated at that time by the US. King tides The islanders moved to a nearby island in the Marshall chain called Kili in 1948. Under an agreement with the US, a resettlement trust fund was eventually established to help the Bikini residents. This would pay for construction of homes within the Marshall Islands. But now the islanders say that their homes are being swamped by the increased ingress of sea water during king tides. There was widespread flooding in 2011 and again this year. Salt is also creeping up from beneath Kili, threatening agriculture and water supplies. In the early part of this year the island's runway was entirely flooded, cutting off the residents. "The people of Bikini came back to us and asked us to take this proposal to the US, to request the resettlement trust fund be used to settle people in the US not just the Marshall Islands," said Tony de Brum, Foreign Minister of the Marshall Islands. "We have not seen the final text of the legislation but the request that went in was on the basis of Kili being uninhabitable because of climate change." The US Department of the Interior is supporting the islanders and is now proposing legislation in Congress that would change the terms of the resettlement trust. Under an agreement between the Marshalls and the US, islanders have the right to live, work and study in the US without restrictions on the duration of their stay. "This is an appropriate course of action for the United States to take regarding the welfare and livelihood of the Bikinian people, given the deteriorating conditions on Kili and Ejit Islands in the Marshall Islands - with crowding, diminishing resources, and increased frequency of flooding due to King Tides on their islands," said Assistant Secretary of the Interior Esther Kia'aina. The Marshall Islands government says the experience of the Bikini islanders shows the need for a new global agreement on climate change. They believe that a new deal can be agreed at a global conference in Paris that begins at the end of November. One key element for the island state is that the agreement stipulate that global temperature rises be kept under 1.5 degrees C from pre industrial levels. Minister de Brum said that from the point of view of small islands and atoll states, two degrees "cannot remain as the absolute cap for everything we are trying do in limiting global warming".
