Guam - The University of Guam Division of Social Work along with the Guahan Coalition for Peace and Justice will hold its public forum titled "The Pacific Blue Continent: Militarized Experiences from Hawaii, the Marshall Islands and Guahan". Hawaii Peace and Justice coordinator Kyle Kajihiro is one of four presenters and hopes to speak on his experiences in Hawaii and sharing the similar struggles that both Guam and Hawaii have had.

He said, "We have similar issues related to social and economic development, cultural impact, environmental impact and the militarization is very intense in Guam and has been intense in Hawaii."

The forum is happening until 7:30 this evening at the UOG Lecture Hall in Mangilao.
