Demilitarize and decolonize the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts
This petition made change with 355 supporters!
The Festival of Pacific Arts is a gathering of indigenous peoples of Oceania (Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia) who come together to share our cultural traditions and Pasifikness through the arts. We wish to demilitarize and decolonize the festival on Guåhan in 2016!
Bill 179-32 seeks to add four new members to the Coordinating Committee of the 2016 Festival of Pacific Arts (FestPac). These members would include: the Chairperson of the Legislative Committee on Tourism; the Chairperson of the Guam Chamber of Commerce; the Chairperson of the Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association; and the Commander of the Joint Region Marianas Guam.
We say NO to the addition of the Commander of the Joint Region Marianas and the President of the Chamber of Commerce (who lobbies for the hypermilitarization of Guam) as official, decision-making members of the Guam 2016 Festival of Pacific Arts Coordinating Committee.
