Dozens of protesters marched on Guamanian Governor Eddie Calvo's complex to criticise his apparent silence over a proposed 1,000 acre deforestation project to make way for a military firing range, near the island's capital Hagatna in the settlement of Adelup, Tuesday.
The community-organised group Prutehi Litekyan rallied under the banner 'Save Ritidian', the name of the area in the Guam... Еще National Wildlife Refuge which is threatened by the proposals from the federal government.
Some of the protesters voiced their frustration at being viewed as a mere 'strategic outpost' for the US, rather than celebrating the island's heritage and culture.
«I fundamentally disagree with the taking of Chamorro land for militarisation purposes. I think it's fundamentally against our cultural values and against our human right to just exist,» said one of the demonstrators. «The military has a long history of doing this, they currently own 27 percent of the land so I don't think that there's a need for any more.»
