On October 7th a delegation of Chamorros testified before the United Nations Special Political and Decolonization Committee (Fourth Committee) in New York City on the question of Guam's continued colonial status.
The delegates discussed the cumulative adverse impacts of US colonization and the current military build-up, highlighting such issues as environmental contamination, Chamorro displacement, alarming cancer rates, and the infrastructural strains expected from the island's unprecedented population boom - which will make the Chamorro people a minority group in our homeland.
