Manhoben Para Guahan

Towards the end of last month I spent two nights in a row editing this video with Edgar Flores in response to the protests and public hearings that had been taking place.

Both Edgar and I were at the public hearing at the Liheslaturan Guåhan on a Friday where we heard dozens speak about their concerns and frustrations about the US military buildup and in particular the use of Litekyan for a firing range. We were both there the following day when a group of youth organized a demonstration in front of Andersen Air Force Base and witnessed their act of civil disobedience as they temporarily blocked the gate.

The video is meant to help people understand why people were willing to undertake such an action, by using the testimonies of two young passionate and articulate student members of Manhoben para Guåhan.
