Hi

Just a quick email to offer any help I can. I've been following the Banaban story for some time now, having chanced upon the island's appalling fate as part of my studies into the effects of phosphate fertilizer contaminants on arable land.

I'm a resident of Cambridge UK and have access to the University library, where I notice there is an archive of " Ocean Island " Litigation Records from the 1970s attempt at restitution through the British Courts. Would any of this information be useful to you in terms of future legal action?

Additonally, I have some, albeit theoretical, knowledge of land restoration and would welcome the opportunity to put ideas/suggestions forward. I'm optimistic that both the habitable area of Banaba and its capacity for self sufficiency can be considerbly increased at relatively low cost on a local/community level, without resorting to the involvement of large foreign companies and some of the more extreme solutions suggested, such as the use of imported waste to restore the land to its original level.

Finally, I'm a member of Cambridge Friends of the Earth, so if there's anything you'd like us to do over here in terms of awareness raising, then don't hesitate to ask.

Cheers

Ian
