Five Pacific Women speak from their hearts.
They call for the end of colonisation, the abolition of nuclear weapons, and for respectful protection of our shared Planet. These women have personally experienced and witnessed the painful legacy of the colonialism that has been inflicted on their peoples for centuries.
Emboldened by their inalienable cultures and enduring relationship with their ancestral homelands and oceans, they have each spoken out, becoming respected leaders amongst their peoples.
They have dedicated their lives to reasserting their peoples’ inalienable sovereignty, the abolition of nuclear weapons, the removal of foreign military bases, and deep caring for our Planet. They speak for their home nations of Fiji, the Northern Marianas, Guahan (Guam), the Marshall Islands, and the Philippines.
