Global Guamanian network shares DEIS thoughts

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The deadline to submit comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement was last week, and it wasn't just local residents who aired their concerns.  Michael Lujan Bevacqua is a member of Famoksaiyan, a network of people on Guam and the mainland focused on Chamorro concerns. 

Famoksaiyan uses the Internet to share information and encourage Guamanians in the states to participate in the DEIS process.  He told KUAM News, "If you're in the States getting an education, or if you're living in the States and planning on retiring and coming back to Guam, the buildup really affects you as well because the buildup will bring jobs, it will bring people who will take those jobs.

"And so those jobs may not go to those people in the states trying to get educated and then later come back."
