Protests on land and sea tomorrow for new marine base

Posted: Updated:

A pair of peaceful protests against military projects are scheduled for Saturday.

One will be at the front gate of NCTAMS, the future site of the Gen. Ben Blaz Marine Corps Base Guam. There will also be a group of boats that will be situated off Haputo Beach, also located on the site of the future base.

The removal last year of artifacts from an ancient village site on NCTAMS drew public outcry.

Demonstration organizer Ned Pablo said they are protesting to let the military know that for future decisions or changes in the military footprint they must, "gain consent from the stakeholders and our local leaders." Pablo maintains that "the military has a long history and track record of going against their own words and promises."
