 The Bravo Test Remembrance Worship Event

Sanctuary, Hilo Newborn Temple

181 Oio St. Hilo, Hawaii (Behind the Hilo Shopping Center)

On March 1, 1954 the U.S. government tested Bravo, the hydrogen bomb on Bikini atoll in the Marshall Islands. The test proved to be 1,000 times stronger than the Hiroshima A-bomb. The Bravo test was just one of 67 nuclear and atomic tests done at Bikini and Enewetak from 1946 to 1958.

The Bravo test Remembrance Worship Event, the 63rd anniversary of the Bravo test, is the third to be held in Hilo. The agenda will include: 1) Service of Remembrance, 2) “Nuclear Savage” DVD, 3) Testimonies representing Bikini and Rongelap atolls, and 4) a medical report of the present situation of Micronesians in Hawaii.

Planners of the event are Rev. Maize Luke of the Hilo Marshallese Assembly of God, Rev. Roney Joel of the Hilo Marshallese Ministry, Rev. Glann Lokebol of the Marshallese Full Gospel Church, Mr. Ronald Fujiyoshi and Carmina Alik Hilo Marshallese Community President.

For more information, contact Ronald Fujiyoshi at 808-959-9775 or email:

Bring your friends with you to learn of the injustices of the past and why Marshallese are in Hawaii in growing numbers. An offering will be taken. Bring something to eat.
