Guam, military bases and the struggle for an independent Pacific

Join us for an afternoon workshop with panels, presentations and action planning on US bases and militarisation in Australia, Japan and the Pacific.

Saturday 14 June 2008, 12.30 to 5pm

Venue: Green Building, 60 Leicester Street, Carlton 3053

Speakers include:

Lisa Natividad and Julian Aguon - Chamoru activists from Guam

Richard Tanter - Nautilus Institute

Our two special guests are Lisa Natividad and Julian Aguon, two Chamoru activists from Guahan (Guam) who are campaigning against US military bases on their land. As the Pentagon prepares to move thousands of Marines from Okinawa to Guam, find out about the struggle for indigenous self-determination in the Pacific and Australia’s links to regional militarisation.
