This petition was created to oppose the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Island's plan to lease Pagan Island to Japanese investors as a dump for tons of tsunami debris. Pagan is a small island in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. It is one of the most biologically and geologically diverse islands in the archipelago, and is home to many threatened and endangered species, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. The CNMI is a small island nation limited in land, burying parts of Pagan Island under tons of rubbish from another country, is not only environmentally unconscionable but is degrading to the people of the CNMI.
