Posted: Updated:

Guam - The UOG Division of Social Work and the Guahan Coalition for Peace and Justice will be hosting a public forum tomorrow entitled "The Pacific Blue: Militarized Experiences from Hawaii, Marshall Islands and Guahan". Kyle Kajiiro, who is the acting coordinator for Hawaii Peace and Justice, is one of the guest speakers.

He said, "I think the military has done a lot to support the community in times of disaster and provide that kind of infrastructure at the same time I think it also has an impact on raising tension with other countries and I think that's a part we have to look at, is there a way for us to have peace and security without pointing guns at each other."

Kajihiro says this will allow Guam to understand more about the military buildup process. The forum will be held at the UOG Lecture Hall from 5:30pm to 7:30 Tuesday evening.
