While we celebrate, remember and honor the sacrifices the people of Guam suffered under foreign occupation on this Liberation day I say we honor that memory by adding another part of our liberation celebration. Our fore fathers and mothers fought, died and suffered so that their families could lead a decent life, free from oppression and today we must continue to do so. The act of gaining economic opportunities for Guam’s Working Families needs become the second part of our “Liberation Day”. The way we provide those economic opportunities is by producing good middleclass jobs, and these jobs will only happen if we make them happen. There is an ongoing war on working families which has been quite successful in driving down wages and benefits, but the working people of Guam are fighting back and winning liberation by organizing and being a member of GFT.
