Stop the sale of Manhattan Project Bikini Atoll Beer at Whole Foods

We want to help the Manhattan Project Beer Company sell more beer.  As Pacific Islanders, we love beer.  Nothing goes better with island bbq than beer.

But it is bad form for a company called the Manhattan Project Beer Company to sell a product named after Bikini Atoll.  Nuclear testing is not something to joke about for Pacific Islanders.  The United States, France, and the United Kingdom have used our islands – and our families – as test subjects.  Nuclear testing only stopped in 1996 – the same year I graduated from high school.  While the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, and French Polynesia will forever live under the cloud of a nuclear legacy, military colonialism continues unabated in places like the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam.

Many have reached out to Manhattan Project Beer Company to express our collective disappointment.  We have tried to explain how the naming of this beer after a human tragedy is insensitive at best.  And we have been ignored.

Our next recourse is to reach out to Manhattan Project Beer Company distributors to ask them to please stop selling Bikini Atoll beer.
