Radio 531pi Breakfast Talanoa host Ma’a Brian Sagala talks about the Rarotonga Treaty with Pacific Media Centre director Professor David Robie.

The treaty ushered in the Nuclear Free Pacific Zone 33 years ago, which predated NZ’s own nuclear-free law.

Dr Robie also talks about the Rainbow Warrior’s humanitarian voyage to Rongelap to help the islanders move to another home across the Pacific Ocean.

He is the author of the book Eyes of Fire about French and US nuclear testing in the Pacific.
