Later a study released by the U.S. Department of Energy indicated that the levels of contamination on Rongelap exceeded those on Bikini, which had already been evacuated. At that time, Jeton Anjain (d. 1993), trained as a dentist and serving as health minister, began to seek justice. He resigned from his ministerial position in order to better represent the people of Rongelap as a senator to the Marshall Islands Parliament. He sought evacuation assistance in vain from the Marshall Islands and U.S. governments. Finally, in 1985, Anjain organized the evacuation of Rongelap with the aid of a Greenpeace ship, the Rainbow Warrior. Like a modern day Moses, he led his people to a new home. The community was relocated to the island of Mejato, but the battles continued.
Despite deteriorating health, Anjain continued to work tirelessly for justice for the Rongelap community. In 1993 Anjain died of cancer. If he had only lived a few months longer, he would have seen U.S. officials reveal to the public what he had contended for decades – that the people of Rongelap and other victims were not told the truth regarding the nuclear testing program.
