Families protest over Ritidian

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Ritidian Families Coalition in collaboration with Nasion Chamoru stood their ground outside of the National Wildlife Refuge gate over the weekend in protest not allowing refuge vehicles to pass. RFC representative Catherine McCollum told KUAM News, "Our issue is that the land was taken unjustly and we would like it returned no compensation we don't want no more compensation we want our land back."

Because of this she believes the land is still theirs. But that is not the only concern Nasion Chamorru magalahi Danny Jackson, says that public rights of way from Route 3a to the shoreline is being blocked by the Fish and Wildlife Refuge and that this is the fourth gate that has been erected despite the other three being taken down after protest and PL 23-24.

McCollum says she has documentation to show that the refuge is encroaching on public domain.
