We Are Guahan plans next community forum

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The We Are Guahan Coalition will be holding a public meeting next week to allow the community an opportunity to voice their opposition to the military using Pagat as a firing range. Coalition member Victoria Leon Guerrero says they are hoping to bring together more in the community that want to ensure they preserve the cultural value of the property.

"One of the things that's been insulting to me personally in looking at their plans is they want to use the land for 39 weeks or almost 9 months of the year, but them they're building these cement trails and parking lots and public restrooms as if that's going to appease people when in fact that takes away from the sacredness of the space," she said.

The meeting will be held at the 6pm on Monday at the Guam Legislature's Public Hearing Room in Hagatna.
