Independence Beach Cleanup

On July 28, 2012 the Independence for Guam Task Force held a beach clean up in West Hagåtña along the Liberation Day Parade Route.
The cleanup began at 6 a.m. at the beach across from the GCIC building. It was one of the first community events that the recently revived Independence Task Force organized, and it reflected an important goal of the group – to work toward a sustainable future for Guam.
“Our group is concerned about the well-being of our community,” said Jon Guerrero, who organized the cleanup. “This beach cleanup will not only help beautify our community, but it will also be a great opportunity to learn more about our right to self-determination, and to learn what independence for Guahan would look like for our community.”
More than a dozen community members also participated in the cleanup and learned more about the need for Chamorro self-determination. The trash was disposed of by the Hagåtña Mayor’s Office.
