Guam Governor Advises President Obama on self-determination process

Pacific News Center

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo has written a letter to President Barak Obama detailing Guam's intentions to seek political self determination. The Commission on Decolonization met last Friday for the first time in 8 years. In his letter, the Governor declares that Guam's Commission on Self Determination "is embarking on a quest for political destiny."

He points out that Guam is one of 16 non self-governing territories identified by the United Nations and he asks the President for his administration's continued support during this "significant endeavor."

Members of the Commission on Decolonization voted to schedule regular meetings every first and third Friday of the month.
