Guam - After holding their meeting last night at the Guam Legislature, the We Are Guahan group will now be hosting a community event along the Back Road to Andersen this Friday. Representatives from White House Council on Environmental Quality and other federal officials will be touring Pagat on that same day.
So far the Joint Guam Program Office has reportedly outlined plans to restrict access to the Pagat Village site for 36 weeks out of the year and condemn the Yigo Raceway and other properties. After working to submit thousands of comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, many of which included other options for a firing range, "It has become clear that the voices of the people of Guam were not taken into consideration."
We Are Guahan will be peacefully lining Route 15 to send a strong message to the CEQ and military officials who will be visiting Pagat. The formation of the human chain is from 3-7pm Friday. Parking will be available at the Yigo Raceway with shuttle services to the Pagat Trail.
