Guam - Speaker Judi Won Pat confirms that members of the 31st Guam legislature will march to the gate of Fena Lake this afternoon in hopes to send a clear message to the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy that Fena is not for sale.

The march comes almost 62 years to the day that members of Congress staged a walk out in protest of the island's subjugated status as a people and most notably against the abuses of the military at that time.

Speaker Won Pat says the senators have extended an invitation to Governor Eddie Calvo and Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, who both during their addresses to the people of Guam, gave their commitment to march to Fena with senators.
