'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

Kickstarter Project: "Weaving Solidarity: Indigenous Chamorro Movements & the US Military Buildup of Guam"

Weaving Solidarity: Indigenous Chamorro Movements & The US Military Buildup of Guam from Hermon Farahi on Vimeo.


Filmed at the US Social Forum, held in Detroit, MI, June 22-26, 2010, this video promo is from the Kickstarter Project Campaign, and features Christine Illarmo and Kyle Kajihiro:
THE ISSUE:

The indigenous Chamorro people of Guam and the Mariana Islands are facing the impacts of the single largest military base expenditure in modern history, with an estimated budget of $16 Billion USD. The U.S. already occupies one third of the island for military purposes, and seeks to further dispossess the local inhabitants off their land. In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deemed the buildup as “environmentally unsatisfactory," attributing the worst possible rating to the proposed plans. All this is in the context of 500 years of continuous colonial occupation, which has not changed til this day.
Many thanks to filmmaker and writer Koohan Paik, author of "Living at the "'Tip of the Spear'," about the proposed U.S. military buildup on Guam, for the head's up on this video and project.
