If you are interested in learning more about decolonization and
independence for Guam, please come and join us for Independent Guahan's
October General Assembly meeting, this Thursday (10/27) at 6 pm at the
Main Pavilion of the Chamorro Village in Hagatna. For our educational presentation, we will be discussing what is known as a transition or implementation period. This is a temporary phase whereby a colony that has chosen to become independent, negotiates a gradual reduction in dependency on programs provided by the colonizer, and receives funding in order to develop new revenues and new programs to fill any needed gaps.
For each monthly General Assembly meeting, Independent Guahan chooses a
"maga'taotao" or a pioneer/hero which we honor for their role in helping
push the island towards decolonization. This Thursday, we will be honoring the
late Senator Ben Pangelinan, for his tireless efforts as a Guam lawmaker
to protect the rights, lands and heritage of the Chamorro people. Come
this Thursday to learn more about his contributions.
